Obama, however, is a symptom, not the disease itself, which like early stage cancer has spread largely undetected by the American people. By combining lawlessness and incompetence, the Obama Administration has […]

First off, let me say that I agree with reparations advocates that slavery was a horrible, […]

A Populist Path to Power?

on June 15, 2014, 8:57 AM / in Opinion

“I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” If Thomas Jefferson’s benign reflection on Shays’ Rebellion, that uprising of farmers in 1786 and 1787, is not the first thought that comes to mind today for his fellow Virginian Eric Cantor, surely it […]

Written by  William F. Jasper The rollout of the national tour for Hillary Clinton’s new book, Hard Choices, has been as carefully scripted as any presidential campaign launch, which is no surprise, since the book tour is precisely that: Hillary’s unofficial launch of her 2016 White House bid. It is also no surprise that one of her first stops on […]

I could not believe what I had just heard on my TV. I was outraged. I was angry. Is this woman a complete idiot or is she the most condescending, arrogant and self-serving politician on the planet?

By Michael Gaddy “Conspirators do not make minutes of their machinations, progress, and objectives. Seldom, therefore, can conspiracy be proved by other than circumstantial evidence. It is only by assembling the results, with such evidence as may be of the progress thereof by the participants, that the victim can ever make a case of conspiracy. If in the end there […]

on June 13, 2014, 9:27 AM / in Opinion

The Las Vegas Shootings Predictably, the mainstream media is doing its best to try to depict the couple who killed three people (including two police officers) in Las Vegas as right-wing militia-types. No doubt, the Obama administration will try to conjure up more gun-control. The media is already attempting to link the killers to the brave citizens who defended the […]

For 10 days, Americans have argued over the wisdom of trading five Taliban senior commanders for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Moreover, he has inspired the Haqqani network and other Islamists to capture more Americans to trade. But which represents […]
