It’s Sedition!…But That’s Not a Worthy Story for the Media?

It’s Sedition!…But That’s Not a Worthy Story for the Media?

Webster’s dictionary defines sedition as “incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.” Subversion is “an attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority and hierarchy.” There’s lots of evidence that the Democrats, including the former Obama administration, have been guilty of these two offenses, both of which are illegal.

Fast-food Government: GOP’s Obamacare Repeal Debacle

Fast-food Government: GOP’s Obamacare Repeal Debacle

Anybody who even occasionally gets take-out from any fast food chain will immediately get that story, because about a third of the time you don’t get what you order, even if the ticket is correct and they repeat it back to you. What’s more, when you discover the order isn’t correct – often after you arrive at home – you drive back and go in to get the order corrected, and are typically met with either a mild disinterest or outright hostility.

"A republic, if you can keep it," said Benjamin Franklin when asked what type of government the founders had established.

Republic No More – And Why It Matters

The Founders wrote at length against pure democracy, which as one wag noted, “is two wolves and a sheep deciding on what’s for dinner.” That may be fine for the wolves today, but when three hunters enter the equation tomorrow, not so much. And when five PETA members enter the fray the day after…? And ten cattle ranchers the day after that…?

What’s 5,000 Politicians at the Bottom of the Ocean?

The U.S. Congress has become an elitist institution operating under the protection of the Constitution it so thoroughly disdains and ignores, so here’s my offering of some things that you and I, the American electorate, can demand of Congress to begin the “fundamental transformation” of said Congress

‘Repeal and Replace’?!? –  How About We ‘Replace’ Congress?

‘Repeal and Replace’?!? – How About We ‘Replace’ Congress?

“Repeal and Replace”? How about just “Repeal,” and if you absolutely have to, try to find some way to help that 7 or 11 or 30 million Americans who actually need help with health insurance…and leave the rest of us to hell alone?!

The Left’s Politics of Petulance – Be Afraid…Be Very Afraid

The Left’s Politics of Petulance – Be Afraid…Be Very Afraid

The peaceful transition of political power. For most of human history that was unheard of. Instead, power was wrested from the incumbent by palace intrigue, insurrections, stronger warlords or barons, or out-and-out war. Even a cursory glance at history confirms this, for much of written history centers around such events, in every nation on earth. Except one.

Enough!: The Queer Assault on Freedom

Enough!: The Queer Assault on Freedom

The militant homosexual lobby has adopted fascism as their modus operandi: set up a situation (like the bake shop and print shop) where they know the Christian owners won’t go along with their requests, then get the gay-enamored media to shame the supposed “anti-gay” owners, which gets enough mindless non-gays into leaning on local politicians to “protect the rights” of those poor homosexuals, and voila: the rights and freedoms of another couple are washed away in another display of pure power, no matter how Constitution-shredding it is.

Now Finish the Job, America: Re-claim the Congress!

Now Finish the Job, America: Re-claim the Congress!

This is a victory for the American people, not Donald Trump (he just happened to be here; any other candidate and it would have been a landslide against Hillary), and it was long overdue in coming. So celebrate it today joyfully (and note how the left is responding today). But tomorrow, gird your loins and commit to the even tougher task of reclaiming our Congress from the arrogant, self-serving career politicians who infest it.

November 8, 2016: U.S. Votes to End the Rule of Law!

November 8, 2016: U.S. Votes to End the Rule of Law!

The law protects all law-abiding people by punishing those who violate it; it is the practical glue that holds society together by protecting all our other rights and freedoms. So, when people wantonly violate the law yet are not punished, the effect is to punish the innocent (i.e., everyone else who obeys the law) by making them prey to the lawless, who are emboldened by their avoidance of punishment for their clear wrongdoings.
