Obama’s imperial presidency


President Obama was not the first. He is, however, the worst. Jonathan Turley, a liberal in the old fashioned sense and not a librul, opines in an article titled A Question of Power: The Imperial Presidency that although He did not start the … Continue reading

If GOP takes the Senate, what happens?


The Trifecta predictions are gloomy, but not necessarily correct if we get enough conservatives — who say what they mean and mean what they say — into both houses of the Congress. We need to try. Beyond that, and also beyond whether … Continue reading

The United States of Obama increasingly rejects freedom, domestically and internationally


As the United States of Obama allows less individual freedom, we need to reaffirm that democracy without individual freedom is tyranny. Until we reaffirm that, and refuse to accept tyranny, our “leaders” will continue to demand not only more of the same … Continue reading

Media asked to be even more respectful of Islamist sensitivities


Being  respectful toward the sensitivities of Islamists should be easy for the “legitimate” media. They are normally more than respectful toward the sensitivities of the Obama Administration. An April 15th post by Jonathan Turley argues, gently, against catering excessively to Islamic sensitivities. Lawrence Pintak, dean of … Continue reading

The Curse of Freedom — for the Governing Class


Curse or blessing? You decide, but results may differ in California and Texas. I hadn’t intended to post a second article today, but then I watched this Bill Whittle video and couldn’t resist. My wife, Jeanie, was raised in California … Continue reading

An Historic Event for my blog

Common Core, the United States and the Unified State


The United States consist of fifty different states, united for constitutionally specified purposes but not required to be united for others. She is not and should not become a single unified entity. Each of our fifty States is different from the others, … Continue reading

Who is Destroying the Republican Party?


The thrust of an October 10th article at PJ Media by its founding light, Roger L. Simon, is that Senator Cruz is destroying it. I disagree. Senator Cruz is doing his best to save what little is left of the Republican … Continue reading
