Obama’s Plan to Rejoin the World Community

When Candidate Barack Obama declared himself a “citizen of the world” before thousands of cheering German socialists, and later pledged to “rejoin the World Community,” those weren’t just his usual platitudes about “change.”  Those words sounded the trumpet for his specific and far-reaching globalist agenda.

Church of England Invests in Al Gore’s Ponzi Scheme

Penny wise, pound foolish? In a breathtaking leap of faith, the Church of England has decided to gamble £150 million on global warming alarmist Al Gore’s sketchy investment firm, Generation Investment Management (GIM).

Obamas Sun and Scam While Americans Burn

If Governor Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) is currently under the legal and political gun by States Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald for being caught on tape while conspiring to try to sell the Illinois U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama, then what does that make Barack Obama and his election campaign team (not even the transition team) for openly, wantonly, and illegally selling a spot at the January 20, 2009, inauguration, when those tickets are being distributed FREE?!

Another “Blago-eruption?” Egad, This Is Exciting!

Satire

Governor Rod Blagojevich may be a vulgar, “F-word” addicted wretch, vile and corrupt in all manner before man and God, and a dirty, rotten scoundrel to boot.

However, nobody can accuse Blagojevich of being tepid, reserved, or backward. This man has a flare for the dramatic and for subtle comedy, essential skills in the cutthroat jungle known as Illinois politics, AKA, mobster relationship management.

Requiescat in pace, Uncle Sam

2008 will be known as the year the United States set aside any pretense of free enterprise.  A nation that had flourished with the concept of limited government economic intervention turned to the seductive allure of massive federal intrusion.  Washington will now more than ever redistribute wealth in the name of compassion, pick winners and losers, and decide how the fruits of your labor will be spent.

Our Dangerous Media

What would happen if America won a war and no one reported it? Is it still news? What if a credible argument were made pretty much demolishing Darwin’s theory of evolution? If no media outlet conveyed this information to the American public, does that mean its not a valid argument? Does that mean its not news?

A Constitutional Republic - Can We Keep It?

When Ben Franklin exited the Constitutional Convention after its work was done, a woman asked him, “….. Sir, what have you given us”.  Ben’s response was, “…… a ‘Republic’ ma’am, if you can keep it.”  To the detriment of American freedom, Mr. Franklin’s prophetic words have gone unheeded. We have not kept the Republic for which it stands. We have morphed into majority rule, a Democracy.

Brilliant Thoughts

In my capacity as a veteran book reviewer—nearly fifty years—I recently received some books in a series called the “Daily Dose of Knowledge.” I must confess I like these bite-sized offerings and one of the series is titled “Brilliant Thoughts.”

Barack Obama: Oratory Versus Action

Perhaps it is because I make my living with words that I am more attuned to their meaning and power, but what has struck me most forcefully during the Obama campaign and in these days leading up to his inauguration is his powerful grasp of the utterly vague phrase.

Should Palin be Conservative of the Year?

The influential conservative newspaper Human Events has named Alaska Governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin “Conservative of the Year.” For embracing the vocation of motherhood and articulating conservative Christian views as a political figure, she deserves the title. But it turns out that she is not so conservative on some critical economic and international issues.

Blacks Have Been Conned About Kwanzaa!

Let me state the obvious: If Blacks (or anyone else) want to celebrate Kwanzaa that is their right; however, it is my right to set the record straight. Kwanzaa is not a religious holiday, nor is it a traditional “African thing.” Moreover, it is grounded in violence, corruption, and deceit. Furthermore, it has an admitted humanist foundation, so professing Christians should not go near the thing. Neither should black Americans!

Are You Mindless Enough to Be a Liberal?

With a new Congress and leftist president due to assume power in a matter of weeks, many otherwise rational and patriotic Americans are undecided between suicide and becoming a liberal. Such people should consider the inconsistency and irrational thinking needed to embrace the liberal agenda:

Proposition 8: Speak Softly and Carry a Big Poll

Undoubtedly spurred by the most altruistic of motives, analysts at the California Public Policy Institute, an independent, objective and non-partisan research network - in their own humble estimation that is - sensed a compelling interest in determining who exactly it was that voted in favor of Proposition 8, a ballot measure designed to insert language in that state’s constitution, defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. In keeping with their trademark fair-minded pursuit of the unvarnished truth, PPI did what every respectable public policy research organization would do that wants to get the unbiased and incontestable facts on any controversial issue: they conducted a poll.
