2014 Aftermath: Who Really Won

November 5, 2014

The election results from the 2014  midterm election are coming in, but the outcome is already a fait accompli:  the GOP has retained the House of Representatives, won 24 of 36 gubernatorial elections, and took the Senate by at least two votes [as of this moment some these numbers are in flux as a few [...]

Did Enterovirous Arrive from Central America?

November 2, 2014

That’s a question more and more parents want to know.  Evidence is mounting that the wave of enterovirus EV-D68 cases impacting students throughout the nation originated in Central America, giving fuel to the argument that Obama’s policy of sending those unaccompanied illegal minors to all 50 states may have spread this deadly virus. I’ve contended [...]

Baffling: Bush Admin Covers Up WMDs in Iraq

October 17, 2014

The old WMD story has recently resurfaced and if what I’ve read is true, I’m beyond outraged. The back story:  Back in 2006 the Pentagon feared that the insurgents (particularly Al Qaeda in Iraq, now ISIS) would use remnants of Saddam’s chemical weapon stockpile against US troops particularly for use in IEDs. Of course, that [...]

Ebola and the Enterovirus — Preventable Plagues?

October 5, 2014

Right now two plagues are a scourge across America — Ebola and the Non-Polio Enterovirus D-68.  While our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of these highly infectious and deadly diseases making their rounds around the USA, two notions popped into my mind. First, how in the hell did Ebola get in the [...]

Smoke and Fire in Benghazi

September 7, 2014

You know the old saying “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”  The September 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was just such a story.  The Obama Administration’s reaction to it seemed odd (like they were hiding something), and anyone could have figured that this terrorist attack (less than two months before a [...]

Project Veritas on the Border: Do You Feel Safe?

August 11, 2014

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas just released a new video designed to emphasize the real problem with an open Southern border — we don’t really know who is coming over the border!  Here’s the latest video showing O’Keefe himself, dressed like Osama Bin Laden crossing from Mexico into the United States. The Southern border should have [...]

Pelosi Unhinged on the House Floor

August 3, 2014

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got a bit unhinged when Pennsylvania Congressman, Republican Tom Marino, called her out for playing politics with the border by indicating that the Democrats had all the power back in 2009-10 and did nothing about these problems.  Here’s a Fox News interview with Marino on his reaction to Pelosi: While [...]

The Cochran/McDaniel Run-off Fiasco

June 26, 2014

This past Tuesday, Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran defeated insurgent Tea Party-favorite Chris McDaniel in a run-off election by about 6,700 votes.  While McDaniel defeated Cochran in the popular vote after the first primary election, McDaniel failed to get the 50% needed to avoid a run-off. McDaniel is obviously upset and is threatening legal action, which [...]

Trouble at the Border

June 10, 2014

How in the hell do tens of thousands of unaccompanied children end up swamping the Mexican border, creating an impending humanitarian crisis? As far as I can tell, there are two reasons:  1) negligent border security efforts and 2) the impression in many Central American countries that an amnesty is coming. So, the Obama Nation [...]

Bergdahl Prisoner Exchange Debacle

June 4, 2014

Just in time to take the V.A. scandal out of the headlines while head-faking the nation so a deal can be reached with the Hamas-led terrorist Palestinian government, President Obama neatly handed over five Taliban members who were resting comfortably at Gitmo for one American POW… without notifying Congress, which is illegal since these guys [...]

Southern Poverty Law Center: Common Core Critics “Extremist”

May 11, 2014

The Southern Poverty Law Center (probably in dire need of attention and funds these days) has labelled those who raise their voices in opposition to the Common Core federal takeover of education standards as promoting “far-right propaganda” associated with “Fox News, the John Birch Society, Tea Part factions, and the Christian Right.” I’m not shocked [...]

New Benghazi Emails Emerge

May 1, 2014

And they aren’t too pretty.  Even as officers on the ground and at headquarters knew that the September 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks were perpetrated by a coordinated terrorist effort, the Obama Administration was making up and sticking to the ridiculous story that a video made the attackers do it. Hours after the attack the spin [...]

Reid’s Interest in Those “Domestic Terrorists”

April 19, 2014

After the recent Bundy Ranch fiasco finally died down, Nevada Senator Harry Reid jumped into the mix, calling those who descended to the ranch to support Clive Bundy “domestic terrorists.”  While this kind of hyperbole is completely uncalled for (especially for the Senate Majority Leader) and diminishes the meaning of “terrorist,” Reid doubled down on [...]

Sparring Over Common Core

April 18, 2014

While scouring the Internets this morning, I noticed RCP had two contrasting views on Common Core — the national education standards 45 states adopted without looking at them first. David Brooks takes the Ruling Class apologist’s view, basically that one should just get over it and embrace the change. Erick Erickson takes the skeptical view, [...]

Bundy Ranch Standoff Ends

April 13, 2014

Hopefully you’ve been paying attention to events happening in Nevada regarding rancher Clive Bundy’s conflict with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) — it says a lot about what is bubbling beneath the surface in DC and across the nation. The case is simple: Bundy has to pay grazing fees to the federal government since [...]

Movie Review–Captain America: The Winter Soldier

April 6, 2014

Marvel’s latest comic book adaptation, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, hit theaters this weekend with both a fun and highly political message.  Here’s the trailer: The reviews are in and Winter Soldier is definitely worth the price of admission.  It’s even received Glenn Beck’s seal of approval (which is very hard to get for a [...]

Rush’s Warning

April 5, 2014

Occasionally, one needs a dose of clarity to (if nothing else) prepare psychologically for our impending day of reckoning.  I know that sounds apocalyptic, but our government’s spending, general ruling class behavior, the stock market, and other financial institutions are currently not on a sustainable path.  Unfortunately, we don’t know the time or the place [...]

Good Start: Indiana to Dump Common Core

March 30, 2014

As it discovers more about Common Core, Indiana will become the first state that adopted the program to dump it after its initial phases are over.  Some believe that this development could start a snowball effect as more states implement the standards this Fall.  We’ll have to see where all this is going. Common Core [...]

Vatican Chief to Obama Administration: You are “Hostile Towards Christian Civilization”

March 24, 2014

Vatican chief justice Cardinal Raymond Burke said the following when asked about the Obama Administration in an interview for a Christian magazine: It is true that the policies of the president of the United States have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization. He appears to be a totally secularized man who aggressively promotes anti-life [...]

CPAC Opener has Standing O for Christie

March 6, 2014

That title itself tells me everything I need to know about the value of the “C” in CPAC these days.  They also had a standing ovation for Mitch McConnell, who needed props to elicit such a response (please donate to his primary challenger, Matt Bevin, and finally get Mitch to retire).  At least they saved [...]

Anti-Common Core Sentiment Yielding Strange Bedfellows

February 4, 2014

I’ve covered the basic problems with the Common Core education initiative hoping to draw attention to an issue many people don’t fully understand, and one that we all have to deal with.  As more and more states fully adopt the program, they’re realizing how big a mess they got themselves into — an initial $10 [...]

Roe Plus 41

January 22, 2014

Ghastly math:  Roe v. Wade + 41 years = 55 million deaths. On this dark anniversary, tens of thousands braved Arctic cold and snow for the fortieth “March For Life” in Washington DC.  I was actually at one of these back in 1998.  It was inspiring to see so many others from all parts of [...]

Common Core: A 2014 Sleeper Issue

January 12, 2014

I initially wanted to post on the horrible economic news from what should have been a gang-busters robust good news jobs report that we didn’t get on Friday, but this Common Core issue keeps reappearing, impacting local politics throughout the nation as well as my own classroom. To the uninitiated, Common Core is an attempt [...]

Chris Christie Deals with a “Roadblock”

January 8, 2014

It is clear that after his recent reelection, Establishment New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to be President.  He won’t win, but the GOP seems on their way to nominate him, especially since his recent pandering to illegals.  But there may be a roadblock to an easy GOP nomination — a literal roadblock. Here is [...]

Obamacare vs. Little Sisters of the Poor

January 4, 2014

Just to review, the First Amendment to the Constitution states in its first clause: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; … That second part makes some very uncomfortable, and often is ignored in the courts. That being said, the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t approve of [...]

NYT Provides Cover for Hillary in Benghazi Story

December 30, 2013

If there was a story that the MSM would want out of the headlines, it’s Benghazi:  the murder of a US ambassador by an al Qaeda-linked militia; the repeated lies about the video by administration officials in the weeks following the attack; the way it makes the President look aloof, Hillary look cold, and the [...]

Christie Signs New Jersey’s DREAM Act

December 21, 2013

Chris Christie’s gearing up for 2016.  Since the Establishment GOP is likely planning to vote with Democrats next year on amnesty, New Jersey’s governor Chris Christie is getting with the program, signing a version of the DREAM Act (which is a misnomer, since there has been no “Act” passed by Congress, only some targeted regulations [...]

Rush on the Establishment War Against the Tea Party

December 17, 2013

We know that House Speaker John Boehner has drawn a line in the sand, not against Obama and the ideological left, but on the Tea Party and the ideological right.  For a start, Establishment Congressman Peter “Let’s Attack Everyone Everywhere” King just started an anti-Tea Party PAC to oppose insurgents in the primaries. Well, Boehner [...]

Boehner on Conservatives: “I Don’t Care What They Do”

December 12, 2013

By “they,” Speaker Boehner is referring to conservative groups upset at the latest Establishment capitulation over the budget. Unnamed conservative groups, by the way.  Real brave. Boehner’s maneuver was insidious — everyone knew the basic outline of the budget deal and conservatives thought that that outline sucked.  It does.  But to then to attack conservative [...]
