Freedom’s Last Stand?

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan Last month my wife and I took a cruise into the Western Caribbean. It has been many years since we were able to embark on such a vacation. It was a welcome respite from the daily routine. This trip was a bit different than others. This excursion was experienced through the lens…

A few comments on the El Paso Manifesto written by white-supremacist Thanos wannabe

For those who want to read the El Paso manifesto for themselves, Drudge has a link to it.  Personally, I found him to be all over the map. He extols far-left, far-right, and can’t-even-spectrum-label-it views in the same paragraph sometimes, but it boils down to this.  He hates immigration, he sees the “invasion” of Latinos as being encouraged by the Democrats to increase their voting bloc so they can turn the US into a one-party country, but the Republicans are weak and pro-corporate, so a pox on both their houses.…

Unrepresentative

“What is happening in these ICE facilities [is that] they pilot how they can abuse privacy rights, how they can abuse human rights, and they scale that up.” – Rep. Ayanna Pressley “We shouldn’t revise history. We are a country built on the backs of slaves and stolen land. Independence Day allows us to reflect on how far we’ve come and how far we have to go.” – Rep. Ilhan Omar “Never again means something … the fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of…

Donald Trump vs the Squad

Donald Trump saw “The Squad” getting all of the attention and wanted to involve himself somehow. Or maybe he saw too much attention being paid to his former friend Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex abuse case, or to the deplorable conditions in detention centers by the border, and he wanted a distraction. Whatever the motivation, it was a good political strategy to enter the fray with the “Dems in Disarray.” Unfortunately, he did it in a racist way. The Squad are to Nancy Pelosi what the Tea Party was to John…

A Summary and Analysis of the USWNT Employment Discrimination Lawsuit

As I write this post, the United States Women’s National Team (UWSNT) is preparing to play in the final game of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, with an opportunity to win a second consecutive and unprecedented fourth overall world title.  It’s hard to think of a more successful United States international competition team. While it’s always fun to watch and support a winner, the USWNT is a joy to watch for reasons outside of on-the-field dominance.  It’s full of strong personalities and hard workers, who, in my estimation, represent…

An appeal to Romney

Dear Senator Romney, As an informed constituent who voted for you and listened to your rhetoric as you speak across the state and nation, I must ask a simple question: I understand you are concerned about President Trump, but what exactly is your platform?  I am a bit confused. I have spoken with people around your inner circle. They all agree you are a principled, independent, data-driven person who looks at the facts. But do you actually have all the facts? And based on those facts, do you stand independently…

Russian roulette

Sitting on my desk, queued up in my reading list, is a paperback copy of Cleon Skousen’s landmark 1958 book entitled “The Naked Communist”. Skousen outlines, way back before the Beatles were a thing, the global communist plans to destroy America. He draws on his years of experience in law enforcement, along with considerable scholarly research, to outline the various communist political methodologies to accomplish such nefarious goals. This work was so compelling that on January 10, 1963, Congressman Albert Herlong of Florida had the forty-five goals of the Communist…

Trump, the tragic hero

“Here the thing I think about Trump. Say what you will about him, I think his outer voice is an entirely accurate depiction of his inner voice, as crazy as that is on some things. I don’t think Hillary Clinton’s outer voice and inner voice have ever even had a cup of coffee together[.]” – Dennis Miller on the Ben Shapiro Show. In the aftermath of the Mueller report, we now have information surrounding the origins of this fiasco coming to light. Despite the report finding no evidence of conspiracy…

The numerical agenda behind open borders

“A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.” – Ronald Reagan President Trump declares a national emergency at the southern border, igniting a partisan firestorm, a new funding bill comes from Congress that exacerbates border problems versus solving them. With border security a polarizing matter both from ideological and economic perspectives, it is time to examine the issue more closely. The puzzling questions as Trump seeks decisive action with little cooperation, seeking to remedy policies of past administrations that have failed to enforce the borders or universally…

All eyes on Venezuela

“The past may not repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme” – Mark Twain Last week an unheralded military event occurred. Reports indicate the United States moved 5,000 troops into South America. They are in Columbia (with permission) and are heading inland towards the Venezuelan border. This occurred just days after the Trump administration joined twenty-eight other European and Western nations to support Juan Guaido as the new interim President of Venezuela, declaring the Maduro administration as illegitimate and in violation of basic human rights. You can read a detailed…
