Where is Our Voice in the Wilderness Touting Conservatism?

Where is Our Voice in the Wilderness Touting Conservatism?

on September 18, 2014, 11:23 AM / in Opinion

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” http://bit.ly/1qEJAvj The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections. The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in […]

House resolution to fund Syrian rebels: pure unadulterated madness

House resolution to fund Syrian rebels: pure unadulterated madness

on September 18, 2014, 11:20 AM / in Opinion

The Obama administration and indeed now Congress are apparently dead set on “arming” Syrian rebels to fight against ISIS. These are the same folks to which the president referred to as doctors, farmers, and pharmacists and said any endeavor to arm them was a “fantasy.” Well, looks like that fantasy is about to come true. As reported by USA Today, […]

Don’t Drink the EHR Kool-Aid

on September 18, 2014, 9:08 AM / in Opinion

The Obama administration needs you to believe a lie. They have already spent nearly $25 billion of the $36 billion in taxpayer dollars allotted to move Americans from the security of paper medical records to the insecurity and government surveillance and intrusions of interoperable electronic health records (EHRs). But you, the American patient, are not yet convinced the government EHR […]

By Anita Hoge / NewsWithViews.com While everyone is out there debating Common Core, there is a system of standardization being put in place. And, if you are unaware of this system, what you don’t know about Common Core, Choice, and Charter Schools CAN hurt you.

ENEMIES ON THE LEFT FALSE FRIENDS ON THE RIGHT PART 13

By Kelleigh Nelson “Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any […]

Ladies, Do You LIKE Being Manipulated?

on September 16, 2014, 9:21 AM / in Opinion

It is no coincidence that what is offered on television is called programming.  If you are even moderately observant, it will have occurred to you at some point that almost every story in the news seems designed to get you worked up over one issue or another.  Most of the issues involve either local-, state- or federal government, or some […]

In Nashville, taxpayers pay for ‘art’ few people want to look at

In Nashville, taxpayers pay for ‘art’ few people want to look at

on September 15, 2014, 6:44 AM / in News, Opinion, State News

By Chris Butler | Tennessee Watchdog NASHVILLE — Let’s try making sense of this, shall we? Nashville officials offer subsidized housing to local artists on the pretense it’s the only way to keep artisans in the city. They live in the Ryman Lofts, in one of Nashville’s most expensive areas downtown. These same city officials have given away nearly $1.5 million […]

Allow me to Retort: “The school budget reveals interesting facts”

By Neil Siders / EverythingHendersonville.com Sunshine Law Violations On Monday September 8, 2014 the newly constituted County Commission’s Education Committee and Budget Committee passed the 2014/2015 school budget with very little discussion. On the following day, Everything Hendersonville published an article detailing the Commission’s failure to ask questions or deliberate during the Committee meetings. As could be expected, the fallout […]

The Forever War

The Forever War

on September 14, 2014, 6:43 AM / in Opinion

The strategy that President Obama laid out Wednesday night to “degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL,” is incoherent, inconsistent and, ultimately, non-credible. A year ago, Obama and John Kerry were straining at the leash to launch air strikes on Syrian President Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in “killing his own people.” But […]

Who Killed Joan Rivers?

Who Killed Joan Rivers?

on September 14, 2014, 6:40 AM / in Opinion

Writing for Breitbart.com, John Nolte showed more perspicacity than almost anyone I’ve seen relative to the unexpected death of comedian Joan Rivers. Nolte wrote: “With the death of Joan Rivers at 81 Thursday, we lost one more icon in a dwindling breed: the comedian who does not seek the good opinion of the powerful media and entertainment elite. “Just two […]

Why are BLACK players so abusive????

on September 13, 2014, 10:25 AM / in Opinion

I am sitting here half way watching the TV news (listening mostly rather than watching) and I am seeing a report that is going on about the NFL and the assaults and abuse charges that have been against so many NFL players. The thing that stands out BIG TIME is that each and every one they are highlighting are about […]

Randy Lamb, Steve Maroney and other thoughts on that wildly tossed around term called Conservative

on September 12, 2014, 11:44 AM / in Local News, News, Opinion

Last night at the Old Country Store, Randy Lamb, a candidate for District 27 State Senate position did something that I considered very brave. He presented, to a collection of individuals where all were members or supporters of the West Tennessee Firearms Association, a case for voting for him. For me, it was kind of like watching salmon swimming upstream, beautiful […]

Forget Slavery: Even Too Uncle Tom for Conservatives?

on September 11, 2014, 9:11 AM / in Opinion

Even a few white conservative radio hosts became uncomfortable and pushed back against my saying that slavery happened a ga-zillion years ago and it is time for black America to get over it. Apparently, they considered such a statement coming from a black person too Uncle Tom-ish for even them. Their retort is “Surely, you must admit that being African […]

Obama’s Breathtaking Expansion of War Powers

Jack Goldsmith said: “Future historians will ask why George W. Bush sought and received express congressional authorization for his wars (against al Qaeda and Iraq) and his successor did not. They will puzzle over how Barack Obama the prudent war-powers constitutionalist transformed into a matchless war-powers unilateralist. And they will wonder why he claimed to ‘welcome congressional support’ for his new […]

While we were gone during the last week the Jackson Sun continued to pursue the course of liberal blindness. While we were not here to witness this, our friend at RockyTop did. The editorial page of the Jackson Sun appears to be a liberal island amidst a sea of conservatives. But isolated fuzzy-headed liberals can get at little, well, fuzzy-headed […]

Keep America Independent: Stop Trade Promotion Authority

An important element in our fight to stop the two mega free trade agreements – the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) – is to stop Congress from approving a new Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill. Of course, TPA is just the new name for “fast-track authority,” which has been used to steamroll free trade agreements, such […]

by Ben Shapiro / FrontPageMag Barack Obama pledged to radically transform America when he took office. He didn’t stop at America. President Obama’s greatest legacy may be the radical reshaping of the global map. Fast forward three years. Here’s where we stand. Given Europe’s failure to stand up to Russian aggression in Crimea, Russia’s borders have expanded to include Eastern […]

Mob Rule Economics

on September 10, 2014, 7:31 AM / in Opinion

While we talk about democracy and equal rights, we seem increasingly to let both private and government decisions be determined by mob rule. There is nothing democratic about mob rule. It means that some people’s votes are to be overruled by other people’s disruptions, harassments and threats. The latest examples are the mobs in the streets in cities across the […]

As negotiations continue toward immersing the United States in another sovereignty-compromising trade pact, it’s hardly surprising to know that proper warnings were issued about such an agreement in The New American magazine five years ago. TNA‘s May 12, 2008 feature article entitled “Transatlantic Two-Step” reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso met with President George […]
