Big bad Barack flinches

Democrat Senator Joe Biden described Barack Obama last year: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.  I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Historic support for U.S. Troops

History is about to be made - and you can be a part of it.  This June 26th, an unprecedented collection of patriotic leaders will be brought together - united by their shared support for the heroic service of the men and women of the United States military who are fighting on the frontlines of the war on terror.

Democrats are Forever Looking Backwards

When former Vice President, Oscar and Nobel Prize winner, Albert Gore, Jr., endorsed Barack Hussein Obama, it demonstrated why the Democrat Party is always looking backward, as opposed to the future.

It’s MarX, Not MarK, Comrade!

Commies and liberalsIn my recent column titled, “I am Voting Democrat,” the very last item read “Karl Mark was smarter than George W. Bush.”

It should have read, “Karl Marx, in whose name the Democrat Party seeks to destroy America and the entire free world, was smarter than George W. Bush.”

That typo provided interesting commentary from both sides of the political aisle:

Democrats Continue to Make Fools of Themselves

Allow me to begin by stating for the record that I realize how politically incorrect it is to single out a specific group of people and acknowledge their overtly foolish behaviors. But it seems we have reached a moment of insanity, when enough really should be enough!

All Evil is on the Left

When men like Senator McCain, who I give the benefit of doubt in his moral seriousness, seeks a moderate position, when anyone seeks the “middle ground” in political debate, it is clear that the old bogeyman of evil on the “Far Right” and evil on the “Far Left” has enthralled them.

Iraq Fades as News

Five years passed an extraordinarily successful invasion of Iraq and the taking of Baghdad, followed by several years of a slow and bloody learning curve, Iraq is fading from the front pages of our newspapers and reports on television precisely because Iraq has begun to learn how to govern itself, to develop a national identity out of its warring religious groups, and perhaps most importantly to create an army and police corps to provide a real measure of security.

It Takes a Collective, Obama Believes

Red diaper baby Barack Obama’s collectivist beliefs go way back. We dug up an enlightening old article, “What Makes Obama Run?” (by Hank De Zutter, Chicago Reader, Dec. 8, 1995) that offers more insight into what Obama, the Democrats’ presumptive presidential candidate, thinks about America and traditional American values. The short answer: not much.

From “Green Conservatism” to Black Gold

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich has been on Fox News and Sean Hannity’s radio show promoting oil drilling in the U.S to help solve our energy crisis. He’s got a “Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less” campaign drawing hundreds of thousands of names to one of his websites. But this is a new tune.

Why Is Government Forcing America to Switch to Digital Television?

Apparently the sticky problems confronting our nation, including wars in two foreign nations, the very real threat of terrorism, gasoline near $5 a gallon, rising inflation and unemployment, spiraling health care costs, record federal deficits, old, declining infrastructure, and massive illegal immigration from the third-world, are not enough to keep Washington bureaucrats busy.

Are American Voters as Stupid As Democrats Bank On?

I’d love to be able to say that American voters are far too intelligent to ever fall for the socialist drivel currently peddled by the New Democrat Party, aka - the Democratic Socialists of America. But that would be a lie…

Obama-Sebelius ‘08

I have reason to believe Barack Obama will pick a woman to be his running mate.  It just won’t be Hillary Clinton.

Overrun and Overwhelmed By Illegal Aliens

Most, if not all of the problems of America can be solved with fairly simple solutions, if it wasn’t for the fact that those problems were obfuscated and clouded by an agenda of a special interest, or a bunch of politicians looking to pander to some group for votes, money, or an easy path to re-election.
