Waiting for an Anti-Newt

Waiting for an Anti-Newt

As a political junkie, my biggest wish was always for someone to put elite-media commentators and debate moderators in their place.  Now that Juan Williams and John King have both been savaged by the agile tongue of the great anti-Romney, I solemnly ask — is it too late to take that wish back? Discourse that was meant to be Reagan-esque now sounds calculated and predictable.

The Drudge Distort

The Drudge Distort

You’re being manipulated. A well respected, highly influential news source has cast aside all journalistic integrity to shill for the liberal, GOP establishment candidate in this presidential race. The New York Times, you say? MSNBC? The Washington Post? No. We all gave up on those “progressive” rags a long time ago. Regrettably, the latest media outlet to assume a decidedly yellow hue during this heated primary cycle is the Drudge Report.

2012 Mis-State-Ment of the Union Address

2012 Mis-State-Ment of the Union Address

This is a great analysis of President Barack Obama’s Mis-State-Ment of the Union address this week. As a friend pointed out to me today, it helps illustrate and answer a question asked in the title of  Andy Andrews’ new book “How Do You Kill 11 Million People?” Just lie.  When people are ignorant, it’s easy.

Will Supreme Court Stand for Our Freedoms?

Will Supreme Court Stand for Our Freedoms?

It is a frightening time in our nation’s history when we see our Supreme Court just a single swing vote away (Justice Kennedy) from undoing our country as founded.  And, if Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is somehow reelected (by hook and crook), then we are looking at the prospect of his being able to tip the Court over to a radical leftist, firm majority.  He has already appointed two unqualified, radical leftist women to the Court in his first term. We are certainly living in dangerous times for the future of America.

Super PACs = Super Free Speech

Super PACs = Super Free Speech

PACs are nothing but people coming together in cooperation on a political message with which they agree. Money will always find its way into politics because political power is worth so much money.  One legislative act can affect not just individual companies but entire segments of our economy.  You want to equalize the political process?  One step would be reducing the size of a federal behemoth that routinely enriches one group at the expense of another.  In short, make political power less attractive to groups and PACs.

Freedom!

Freedom!

I was going through some “old stuff” [aka memories] in some old boxes and discovered a document that I want to share with you, my reader. It was technically known as a “Movement Order,” but it was commonly called a “Flag Order” by all of us serving in West Berlin because of the prominent American Flag. What bearing does an old “Flag Order” from Germany have on life in America today? You might be surprised.
