MLK Would be Embarrassed of BHO

I was fifteen in 1963, and I vaguely remember breaking my summer routine to notice that the largest crowd of Americans ever to congregate on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., had gathered to demand their civil rights. They were led by a 34-year-old black preacher from Georgia. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had been…

Chris Christie Should Switch Parties

Imagine you are a teenage boy who feels an attraction to other males. Imagine further that you detest having those feelings, feelings for which you would like to seek professional help to overcome these proclivities and lead what you consider to be a normal life. Well, if you are, in fact, that poor, confused teen…

PC Orthodoxy is Destroying America

“We have met the enemy, and he is us.” — Pogo. What’s more chilling than a people oppressed by a Hitler, a Mao or a Stalin? A people that voluntarily oppresses itself, a reality that has now afflicted America. We have watched over the last 40 years as American women have gone — willingly in…

Once a Weiner, Always a Weiner

The late-night comedians have not had this much material since Bill Clinton wagged his boney finger at the television cameras and declared, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” and then sent Hillary out to declare that the whole thing was the work of a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” With Anthony Weiner…

Obama, Zimmerman, and Race in America

While the media has remained obsessed with the trial of George Zimmerman, they systematically ignored the stories of three other men simultaneously being brought to justice.

America Has Ceased To Be Great — or Good

As I listened to the convoluted legal gobbledygook passing for erudite Constitutional expertise from the United States Supreme Court as they attempted to justify same sex marriage, my mind was flooded with the haunting words of some of the great men of history. David Fitzsimmons / Arizona Daily Star I thought of Aristotle, who said,…

A Congressman With Guts Takes on Obama

Michele Bachmann, One Of Our Best

The prophet Isaiah wrote, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20, KJV) Sixteenth century theologian Martin Luther once said, “Send your good men into the clergy, but send your best men into…

The Danger in DC Is Bipartisanship

The growing scandals enveloping the Obama administration are becoming a series of shiny baubles being dangled before the right and the left alike. The right wants to impeach Obama, while the left, of course, wants to blindly defend him. Meanwhile, the American people are being sold a bill of goods that this is a partisan…

IRS Scandal Another Reason Why We Need The Fair Tax

“It will create a bureaucracy with the efficiency of the Post Office, the frugality of the Pentagon and the compassion of the IRS.” — Mantra of those who opposed HillaryCare in the 1990s. In the idealistic constitutional fantasies of those who harbor high hopes and short memories, the accumulating effect of the scandals piling up…

More Evil Than Nazi Germany

This is a tale that would bring a smile to the face of Josef Mengele, Adolf Hitler and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger: the true story of a black abortionist making a fortune killing black babies — and occasionally a black mother — in the filthiest conditions imaginable.
