U.S. must reengage Latin American democracies but shun police states like Cuba and Venezuela

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Hard-left groups in the United States want to “normalize” diplomatic relations with Venezuela and Cuba.  They want Congress to lift the U.S. trade embargo on Cuba and they’re urging President-elect Obama to meet one-on-one with his Venezuelan counterpart at next April’s Summit of the Americas meeting in Trinidad.  Neither idea is a good one.

Nothing to be Thankful For?

imageWoe unto me! All is lost, there is nothing to be thankful for this year!

Is that the lament falling from your own cranberry blasted lips this holiday?

Listen up, buster and bustess! There is plenty to be thankful for, if you are willing to look hard enough.

Big three don’t deserve bail-out by taxpayers after decades of kowtowing to UAW demands

FLINT, Mi. — With the Big Three facing serious financial troubles and GM on the verge of bankruptcy, the American taxpayers, via Congress, are being asked for a bailout.  Instead, maybe it’s time that GM faces reorganization through bankruptcy court, just like the thousands of other failing businesses that seek protection through Chapter 11.

Obama’s early appointments empower oodles of power-grabbing Clintonistas

WASHINGTON, D.C.  — When I can’t sleep, I slip downstairs and munch cereal and milk while I surf the news channels.  Suddenly the gray face of attorney Lanny Davis flashed by on the local Fox News.  A nightmare, I thought.

Media Fiddle While America Burns

I got into trouble many years ago when I co-hosted CNN’s now-defunct Crossfire show and told an Ambassador from Libya, who was filibustering and denying his government’s links to terrorism, to “Please shut up.” The producer told me that I went too far, but at least I said “please.” On the other hand, CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo went too far when she concluded a Monday interview with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a major Citigroup investor who has been bailed out by U.S. taxpayers, by saying, “Thank you very much for your precious time.”

Our Place in the House of Obama

Where exactly do Republicans and conservatives fit in a political space where Barack Obama will soon assume the powers and duties of the President of the United States?

When posing this question,  I am not asking whether Republicans will be included in the Obama cabinet although it is likely one will be.  If unity is one of the objectives of an Obama Presidency how would President Obama reach out to Republicans and conservatives?  Would President Obama direct his supporters to hold out the olive branch?

Be Careful What You Wish For

There is danger to Democrats in basing their victories upon winning seats in Red States.  There is little reason to believe that North Carolina, Georgia, Alaska – states that have or may elect Democrats to the Senate – and Louisiana, Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico, South Dakota, Arkansas and other states that reelected Democrats have suddenly embraced the sort of radical ideology that Obama promises to bring.

2008 The Age of Arrogant Ignorance

In the months leading up to the 2008 election, as it became painfully clear that America was preparing to elect the most unqualified Commander-in-Chief ever to seek the Oval Office, I jokingly pondered how many current members of congress could pass a basic civics test.

The Plundering and Looting of America’s Roots

When the madman Hitler rose to power in Germany, it was just after the time that Germany had suffered a humiliating defeat in the first World War, (a war Germany started) and was rendered militarily “toothless” by the Versailles treaty.  German national pride was at a low ebb at the time and Hitler’s passion and grand oratory gave the German people a reason to feel good about themselves again, even though the message Hitler was promoting differed remarkably from what was hidden in the deep recesses of his diabolical mind.

Where is the Pardon for Agent Ramos and Compean?

Agent Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean have been in prison for 2 ½ years now for shooting a very bad, serial drug runner in the butt.  They didn’t even know they had shot the bad guy because he kept running and they thought they were shooting in self-defense.

Fed Bails Out Rich Arabs in Citigroup Deal

For several days there was a fierce national debate over whether American car companies in Detroit deserved $25 billion of taxpayer money and whether American jobs should be saved. The automakers and a union representative were ridiculed, didn’t get the money, and were told to come up with a “plan” to save the companies. After backing the $700-billion Wall Street bailout, Bill O’Reilly of Fox News said Detroit didn’t deserve any federal money because the car companies had been mismanaged. This was a point made by many in the media.

MEDIA REFORM TELE-EVENT

Tuesday 8 PM to 9 PM ET   November 25

All aware Americans know that Mainstream Media is now the tail wagging the dog. Biased commentary, censorship and ‘spinning’’ information, filling the airwaves through 2008, stacked the deck with voters who still don’t know the facts of this election.

Race in the Third Millennium

Although the show was propaganda produced by leftist Norman Lear, no one could accuse “All in the Family” of not being funny.  Its protagonist, blue-collar bigot Archie Bunker, is one of those legendary television characters, and one of his uproarious lines is apropos here.  It was uttered during a scene in which his daughter, Gloria, passionately asked him, “Daddy, did you know that 65 percent of the people murdered in the last ten years were killed by handguns?”  The curmudgeonly patriarch’s reply was classic: “Would it make you feel any better, little girl, if they was pushed outta’ windas’?”
