Will Schumer & Dems Finally Defend Our Constitution?

Schumer_1

Shortly after the November, 2014 Republican landslide we posted an article titled, “Wanted: Gutsy Dems to Rescue Our Constitution”.  The piece went on to explain some of the rationale behind what appears an irreconcilable statement. Some excerpts: “So given the undeniable Republican ascendancy, why would they need gutsy democrats to rescue our Constitution? One, because…

OxyMORON Alert-47% to Vote for “Well-Qualified Socialist”

Socialism1

With apologies to our founders. Gallup conducted a poll asking, “If your party nominated a generally well-qualified person who happened to be a_______, would you vote for that person?” If you fill in that blank with Catholic, Woman, Black, Hispanic, or Jew, over 90% of respondents said, “Yes.” That’s good news. The bad news is…

SCOTUSCare Decision Big Win for Red States & Their Govs

winners

One critical political impact from the Supreme Court ObamaCare ruling that seems to have gone mostly overlooked is how Republican governors, who refused to set up health exchanges, have allowed their states to enjoy very big wins. Those GOP leaders have saved constituents both tons of time and loads of money. Red State voters have…

Cyber Hacking Makes Clueless Obama Most Transparent Ever

system failure

President Obama has finally, if unwittingly, kept a powerful campaign promise. During August of 2007, in a press release, Barack the candidate pledged “the most transparent….administration in history”. The big time hacking of his Office of Personnel Management has moved that ball forward in a hurry.   With this historically unprecedented cyber security breach of federal…

Global Warming Alarmist Pope Francis Should Try This Link

global cooling

From 1973-1979 Pope Francis served as the Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus in Argentina. It was during much of that time the gloom and doom threat of global cooling was circulating in the news. Perhaps it was Papa Francisco’s critical responsibilities as a Jesuit supervisor that limited his exposure to that reporting. Or…

Campaign Ironies, Hill-Jeb, Sanders-Trump

Sanders

We’ve been treated to a couple under-reported presidential campaign ironies in the last week that are really worth reviewing. They’re both amusing and instructive. The first involves highly anticipated speeches made by Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. In an effort to poke fun at Republicans, Mrs. Clinton, the self proclaimed “people’s champion” made what she…

Semi-Socialist/Globalist/Liar Obama a Free Trader? NO!

Obamain bed with corporations

Folks from extreme opposite wings of the ideological spectrum roundly cheered a bi-partisan, if preliminary, repudiation of Barack Obama’s ability to negotiate a trade agreement. It came after months of conflicting, confusing, convoluted assessments of this secretive deal. The only thing more baffling than the multiple, impenetrable “explanations” of the agreement were Democrats voting overwhelmingly…

Hillary’s Starting to Look Like “Oz” in a Pantsuit

Hilary pantsuit

  This whole business of Hillary Clinton enjoying the luxury of making unchallenged pronouncements from behind her seemingly impenetrable curtain reminds us of that classic movie, the Wizard of Oz. The analogy becomes clearer if we view truth seekers, Dorothy, The Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion as our media, in hot, relentless pursuit of…

Obama’s America, Are You Better Off Now Than 6 Years Ago?

Branco

While debating Jimmy Carter during the 1980 presidential campaign, Republican candidate Ronald Reagan used his closing remarks to ask fellow Americans, “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” Today, the “yes” or “no” answers to a modified version of that question is helpful in understanding who, under Barack Obama’s reign has…

1970’s Positive Train Control Still Not “Shovel Ready”

Amtrak crash

The parade of Democrats racing to microphones to cash in politically on the Amtrak tragedy was stunning; even for this special crew of slip & fall ambulance chasers. Although clueless to its specific cause they called for more infrastructure spending and blamed cheapskate Republicans for a lack of funding. Sometimes implied, other times more directly…
