Mueller must go

The recent charging of Roger Stone has made one thing about the ongoing Mueller investigation abundantly clear: This whole charade is no longer about finding the truth about Russian collusion. It is simply a fabricated counter to the Trump presidency concocted by previous pro-Clinton operatives meant to keep the President off balance by harassing individuals associated with Trump and cast a series of perpetual clouds over the administration. Even worse, the Stone incident illustrates a penchant for Gestapo-like tactics to make a political point. And that is a very dangerous…

Border Insecurities

“Every place a wall has been built, illegal immigration has declined. These caravans are going to keep forming, they’re going to keep coming as long as the Democratic leadership continues to negotiate on the wall and refuses to close the loopholes that cause these people to come to the country in the first place.” – Former ICE Director Thomas Homan on Fox News. The recent Presidential address outlining a “crisis at the border” has the entire country abuzz and divided on what actually constitutes proper border security. Last fall, an…

A swing and a Mitts

“POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack @realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive.” Ronna McDaniel, RNC Chairperson and niece of Mitt Romney. While driving home last week Ben Ferguson, subbing for Mark Levin on XM radio, blasted newly elected Senator Mitt Romney for an ill-advised Washington Post Op-ed in which he attacked the character of President Trump. As Ferguson shared details he then called Romney…

Legislate or Litigate?

In a few days, the House of Representatives will change hands. The House majority has flipped control and the same old faces are positioning themselves to take back the levers of power, beginning with Nancy Pelosi. The question for the average American is: will Congress actually accomplish anything over the next two years or will we face a constant stream of litigious sideshows as the Democrats use their restored base of power to derail anything and everything Trump? President Trump faced an uphill battle to implement a reformist agenda when…

What free press?

“The Fake News propaganda media has done more to destroy the free press in America than any possible adversary. The American public really hates the media, and they hate them because they are not getting the facts”. – Author and Journalist Mark Levin on XM Radio I am proud to say I cast my vote for Mitt Romney for Senate. I feel he is an experienced leader. But he missed badly in a recent essay posted on his campaign website. In this essay, he defends the press against President Trump’s…

The real dichotomy up for vote

“To me I don’t have to clarify. It means I love the country; it means I’m fighting for the country. I look at two things, globalists and nationalists. I’m someone who wants to take care of our country for as you know for many, many years…our leaders have been more worried about the world than they have about the United States, and they leave us in a mess. Whether it’s the wars, whether it’s the economy, whether it’s debt, whether it’s all the things they have done… I am proud…

Mobocracy?

As the mid-terms near, we see an escalating trend of disorder within the country. Whether it is shouting down people in restaurants, violent demonstrations and street thuggery in Portland, streams of illegal immigrants heading to storm southern border or homemade envelopes of poison or bombs being mailed to politicians, the crazies our are coming out in number to disrupt the flow of everyday social and political dialogue. In my last piece, I asked the question as to who the real radicals within the American system are. That question remains in…

Pocahontas!

Earlier this year, my wife and I visited the Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City. In this impressive facility we received a small pad-like device that plugged into a data port attached to oversized wall screens. That evening I made a startling discovery perusing my ancestry through the “Where are Your Ancestors From?” display. I am one sixty-fourth Polynesian! I have a sixth great grandmother from the Pacific Islands. She apparently met and married a Dutch trader named Van Zandt and sailed back with him to New Jersey where his…

Who are the real radicals?

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.” – Hillary Clinton in a recent CNN Interview Within any political system, you historically find two ends of a spectrum. At the one end you have those considered “ultra-conservative” and at the other, those who are deemed “radicals”. Conservatives generally hearken to traditional and entrenched values, radicals…

Boxes

“Smart people are a dime a dozen. What matters is the ability to think different, to think outside the box” – Professor Walter Isaacson   We have a poor habit in this modern world. The more complicated our society becomes, the more we try to place people, things, and ideas into convenient little boxes in order to make sense of our world. With the exponentially increasing complexity and the proliferation of information, it seems almost natural, a type of defense mechanism against self-imposed ignorance. But it is that resultant ignorance…
