“Republicans Senators are working hard to get their failed ObamaCare replacement approved. I will be at my desk, pen in hand!” “I am sitting in the Oval Office with a pen in hand, waiting for our senators to give it to me.” – President Trump, last two weeks of July 2017. When Donald Trump was elected, one of his major campaign promises was to “drain the swamp”. This is proving to be problematic as almost everyone he seems to put in a position to assist with his agenda turns out…

In interview with Putin, Megyn makes a mockery

“Presidents come and go and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change. That’s why, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t care who is the head of the United States. We know, more or less, what is going to happen. And so in this regard, even if we wanted to, it would not make sense for us to interfere.” Vladimir Putin interview with Megyn Kelly, June 5, 2016 I remember watching Megyn Kelly’s first show on Fox News. She was fresh, feisty…

The enemy within

“Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States” – Goal #15 of the Communist Party to overthrow America, “The Naked Communist”, Cleon Skousen, Published in 1958, read into the Congressional record in January, 1963. “The western world has been thoroughly saturated with Christianity for 2000 years…any country grounded in Judeo-Christian values cannot be overthrown until those roots are cut. But to cut the roots, to change the culture, a Long March through the institutions is necessary. Only then will power fall into our laps like ripened…

Are Democrats obsolete?

“What is the purpose of the Democratic Party in this country, since it seems to advance policies and promote principles that are un-American? They despise our economic system (which is why Bernie Sanders almost won)… they oppose the military, they oppose law enforcement, they oppose our constitutional system, they oppose capitalism, they oppose the sovereignty of a nation-state and a border. Where do they want to take this country? How much further do they want to take us down this road? They are the largest party in America, led by…

WikiLeaks wackiness

I wonder how many people in this country could identify Julian Assange? He is the founder of an inconvenient operation known as WikiLeaks. He is the individual responsible for digging up more dirt on people in power than anyone in history. He is an Australian-born entrepreneur who is currently living under asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. He is the person responsible for exposing widespread corruption around the DNC and the Clinton campaign (among others), recently releasing thousands of e-mails from Clinton insiders outlining massive legal and ethical violations…

The Crook versus the Clown?

Barring any shenanigans at the summer conventions, the presidential race is set for 2016. Hillary Clinton has sewn up the Democratic nomination, but only with the assistance of a cadre of super delegates. Her struggles against the aged socialist Bernie Sanders among populist voters decry the weakness of her candidacy, a fact Sanders is playing upon as he presses forward with no hope of any majority. On the other side of the aisle, Donald Trump has floated to lofty heights against all traditional political gravity despite the leftist press kicking…

Will the 2016 election offer a viable presidential choice?

“We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.” – George Washington   I wonder what George Washington would think if he were viewing the electoral process today and assessing the level of understanding and participation by the average voter? Have we learned anything at all over the last two electoral cycles? It begs the question of voter ignorance and lack of lessons from history, namely just how dumb has the American electorate become?…

The CNN-Democratic debate was a media love-fest

Tuesday’s debate between Democratic presidential candidates showcased the inherent difficulties this next presidential election will face. Similar to the last two elections and the current Obama Administration receiving a mainstream media pass on almost every difficult issue or controversial decision, so this Democratic election cycle began with a left-leaning media love-fest. Proof once more that our media is in bed with liberalism and all its proponents while conservatives will all have a target on their backs when crunch time comes. Rhetoric flies high in these debates, but the far leaning,…

Income Inequality: Who Cares?

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has just been awarded a post of significant policy importance in what will soon be the Democratic Minority Leadership. She is the leading political exponent of the “income inequality” wars, and as a potential (though so far reluctant) Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, can be expected to drive the issue unmercifully for the next two years. Ammunition for the war is supplied periodically by French economist Thomas Piketty, who has written a book on the subject (the Amazon link is here), showing that the share of…
