Gov. Northam, Please Don’t Resign

on February 4, 2019, 12:10 PM / in Opinion

If not for double standards, Democrat party leaders wouldn’t have any. It was OK in the first decade of this millennium that Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) was considered the “conscience of the Senate” by his Demo colleagues, even though he had been an “exalted cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan. Last year it was OK that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) […]

MLK v the Democrat Party

on January 17, 2019, 6:04 AM / in History, Opinion

Black Americans are recognizing that Democrats have turned MLK’s dream into a nightmare. “Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.” —Thomas Jefferson (1781) In 1983, Republican President Ronald Reagan signed into law a bill designating the third Monday in January a national holiday honoring the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., who […]

Pelosi’s MSM ‘Wrap-Up Smear’ Collusion Against Trump

on January 10, 2019, 7:45 AM / in National News, Opinion

It’s all about leftists’ unquenchable thirst for statist power, and for them, Americans outside the Beltway are just collateral damage in their quest. “The known propensity of a democracy is to licentiousness which the ambitious call, and ignorant believe to be liberty.” —Fisher Ames (1788) Just before the November midterm election, in which the Trump administration’s extraordinary record of achievement couldn’t prevail […]

National Security Debates on the Border and Beyond

on January 3, 2019, 6:58 AM / in National News, Opinion

Two national security issues are casting a long shadow over 2019. “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation of all our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit […]

  The Birth of Jesus: “In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to […]

Will Democrats Get the Recession They Want?

Will Democrats Get the Recession They Want?

on December 21, 2018, 8:51 AM / in Opinion

For the next two years, job and income prospects for tens of millions of American workers and their families will fall victim to the Demos politically induced recession. Three months ago when stock prices were at record highs, The Washington Post’s Beltway elitists declared, “A record-breaking market doesn’t matter to most Americans.” Really? Even though more than half of Americans […]

An ‘Independent Judiciary’ Reality Check

An ‘Independent Judiciary’ Reality Check

on November 29, 2018, 5:42 AM / in Opinion

Chief Justice John Roberts’s assertion that we have an “independent judiciary” lacks credibility. “The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves, in their own sphere of action, but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.” Thomas Jefferson […]

Lincoln v Obama — Words Matter “Our unalterable resolution would be to be free. They have attempted to subdue us by force, but God be praised! in vain.

“No Wall of words, no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.” —George Washington (1798) In the inimitable words of Baseball Hall of Fame sage Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” Who could’ve guessed […]

The Right to Vote, Guaranteed by Patriot Veterans

The Right to Vote, Guaranteed by Patriot Veterans

on November 8, 2018, 7:45 AM / in Opinion

It is a disgraceful irony that the freedom of those who advocate statist tyranny is ensured by generations of Patriot veterans who have defended Liberty. “Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, ‘What should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ … If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of […]

Editor’s Note: Normally we don’t post pleas for contributions. We conclude that it is not our business, we being strictly free. We do this to avoid all the incumbent es of government influences. But to some it is a business as well as a passion. I meet Mark Alexander 21 years ago by chance and I have been a loyal […]

The Trump Administration’s Extraordinary Midterm Record

on November 1, 2018, 8:38 AM / in Opinion

This election is a referendum on Demo voters’ IQ and the MSM’s chokehold on their opinion. “Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of […]

Kanye v Kaepernick — Breaking Ranks

on October 18, 2018, 6:46 AM / in Opinion

Any break from the Democrat Party orthodoxy poses an existential threat to their electability. “We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act […]

The Law of Unintended Consequences “The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their Constitutions of Government.

Toxic Femininity and the #MeToo Mob: Weaponizing Emotional Distress

on October 11, 2018, 8:02 AM / in Opinion

The manifestation of anger and hatred that defines toxic femininity is increasingly on shameful public display. Did you noticed in the Supreme Court nominee hearings that some women harbor unresolved anger toward men? In 2017, the most angry of the lot emerged under the #MeToo identity-politics banner— with legitimate allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace. Most notable were those that brought down Harvey […]

Dick Durbin (D-IL): “Why [are these protests] happening for the first time in the history of this committee? … You are the nominee of President Donald John Trump.” “Judges, therefore, should be always men of learning and experience in the laws, of exemplary morals, great patience, calmness, coolness, and attention. Their minds should not be distracted with jarring interests; they […]
