Religious Crusade?- Jun 4, 2015
The key to a successful free society is when a society is a virtuous society. The success of the American System is primarily due to the fact that the foundation of our country is rooted in Judeo-Christian values and principles. The framework of the structure of our government is largely laid out in the Book of Deuteronomy in the Holy Bible.
A Virtuous Society- May 30, 2015
Benjamin Franklin emphasized that without virtue, free societies could not properly function. He said, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”
Examining Trans Pacific Partnership- May 28, 2015
On Constitution Radio with Douglas V. Gibbs on May 23, 2015, over KMET 1490AM, the topic of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement moseyed its way into the arena of discussion. During the conversation a rare instance in the many year history of the radio program, and on the Political Pistachio blogsite for that matter, emerged where JASmius (my longtime co-host, staff writer, and dear friend) and I disagreed.
The Rise of Democracy, and the Fall of the Electoral College- May 21, 2015
James Madison wrote five times in his essays of the Federalist Papers that we are a republic, and then explained what a republic is. He believed this to be necessary not only so that the Constitution may be properly understood, but because in their argument against the Constitution, the statists of the era were trying to convince the people that a republic, and a democracy, are the same thing. Democracy, in reality, is a transitional form of government, one that would lead America from being a republic to an oppressive oligarchy, argued many of the Founding Fathers. We must never be a democracy.
From Freedom to Bondage- May 11, 2015
Benjamin Franklin said that only a “virtuous people are capable of freedom.” Franklin understood the importance of a moral society, and how secularism may seem free on the surface, but that a society that abandons the Laws of Nature by Nature’s God ultimately leads themselves to bondage, under human masters and tyrannical statism. The Founding Fathers recognized the truth about human nature, primarily viewing it from a classical Christian angle.
Why Aren’t the Republicans Fighting Harder?- May 9, 2015
As a public speaker, I have the opportunity to spend a lot of time with various political clubs, groups and organizations. When it comes to the question and answer portion after my U.S. Constitution presentations, the most common question I get is, “Why don’t the Republicans fight harder?”
I tell the audience there are three possible answers. Either the GOP is too fearful. The GOP is ignorant. Or, the GOP is a part of the problem.
It may be a little bit of all of them.
Hallelujah! Ben Carson Joined the Fray- May 6, 2015
Dr. Benjamin Solomon “Ben” Carson, Sr. is a fantastic human being. He’s a retired neurosurgeon that has the distinction of being the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins joined at the head. He’s also an author, and now he has decided to be a politician that isn’t a politician.
Socialist Riots- May 1, 2015
May Day is historically a day for the workers of the world to unite, and march. In other words, a call for socialism. In the 2016 campaign picture, Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed socialist, has decided to run as a Democrat for the presidency. As Newsweek said when Obama took office, “We are all socialists now.”
A Godly Right to Privacy- Apr 18, 2015
First, we must understand that the Constitution does not give rights, and it does not guarantee rights. We institute government to protect our rights from being infringed upon by other individuals, groups, organizations, and from the government itself that has been put into place to safeguard those rights by following the rule of law. In the end, our rights belong to us, so it is really our own responsibility to guarantee our rights.
Supreme Court’s Supreme Problems- Apr 15, 2015
MSNBC asks, “Is the Supreme Court broken?” The logic in the online article that asks that question has some merit, and in fact, in some ways the writer asks the right questions. Sometimes, leftists teeter on the truth, but usually their ideology doesn’t allow them to locate the right answers.
California Drought: All About Control- Apr 13, 2015
If Barack Obama can bypass his legislature, and seize executive control like a dictator at the national level, California Governor Jerry Brown has determined he can do the same at the state level. The liberal left blames Pat Brown, the California governor that was Jerry Brown’s father, for the water crisis California faces by determining it was Pat Brown’s decision to bring water to Southern California which encouraged millions upon millions to come to Southern California, which in turn created a population so big that there isn’t enough water to quench the thirst of all of them.
World Prepares for Russian Aggression- Apr 7, 2015
In 2008, Russia gained control over South Ossetia and Abkhazia from neighboring Georgia, and then last month, on the anniversary of occupying Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a 25 year Treaty of Alliance and Integration, solidifying control over South Ossetia.
When the Iran Deal Hits the Fan- Apr 3, 2015
Neville Chamberlain’s name will live in infamy. Chamberlain was Prime Minister of Great Britain when the Nazis were on the rise in Germany prior to the Second World War. Neville was a pacifist, a guy that, if alive today, would have peace signs plastered throughout his office. His foreign policy was much like Barack Obama’s, filled with “negotiate first” and “appeasement” insertions to the point that it was disastrous.
Ted Cruz: Eligible for President, or not?- Mar 25, 2015
Ted Cruz was born in Canada, and so there is a lot of talk about whether or not the man is eligible to be President of the United States. The question arises from a clause in Article II of the United States Constitution that provides, as an eligibility requirement for President, that the person is a “Natural Born Citizen.” No detailed definition is given, no clarification in case the President has a Kenyan father, and no explanation for kids born outside the good ol’ U.S.A.

Obama and United Nations to Force Netanyahu into Two-State Solution- Mar 19, 2015
President Barack Obama always gets what he wants. He circumvents the Constitution, and circumvents Congress, to do it, but he always gets what he wants in the end. I am sure it is frustrating to him that the Republicans refuse to be a rubber stamp for Obama’s foreign anti-American policies. But, despite the “obstructionists,” as he likes to call them, in Congress, Obama has succeeded in federalizing a number of issues, creating racial divide, and knocking America down a few notches on the world stage.
