Remember the Economy? It’s Still Bad

According to a poll earlier this year, voters have a higher opinion of cockroaches than Congressmen. President Obama’s personal popularity remains solid, but his job approval rating is going down. Why are our elected officials unpopular?

Bush library dedication ceremony

I watched portions of the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. It was a day of symbolism and photo ops with 5 living Presidents covering most of the political spectrum attempting to make nice with each other.

Bill Hambrecht’s Connection to UN Boston Terror Apologist Richard Falk

This article by Anne Bayefsky originally appeared today on Breitbart News.

The UN Human Rights Council’s “human rights expert” Richard Falk has been enthusiastically welcomed in certain quarters after his obscene remarks on Boston’s “canaries” and justifiable “resistance” to “the American global domination project.” Monday evening in Beirut, Lebanon, Falk received an honor named after none other than one of the biggest Democratic money men in California, Bill Hambrecht.

Restoring America: one political race, one conservative candidate at a time

Upon our brief return to our home in Florida, Sammy, our greyhound gave me a ho-hum look and retired to his doggie-bed; not the excited welcome home I expected after being away for over a month. I fear the house-sitter has stolen the affection of my dog.

Bad moon over America

As the events in Boston played out over the last two weeks, one facet of this administration’s actions kept troubling me.  I couldn’t quite see it through the dense fog of information and accusations at first, but then in the dark of a restless night after my oral surgery a few days ago, I looked skyward and asked God Almighty for some light on the big picture, because I’m a “big picture, bottom line” kind of guy.  It seemed that within seconds, the clouds overhead began to break, and out of the darkness rose a full moon.  Somehow it seemed like an answer, but how?

National Security at Risk with Left at Helm

Last Thursday, adding insult to injury in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, the administration of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick stonewalled efforts by the Boston Herald to determine the extent of government benefits provided to the Tsarnaev brothers, particularly attack mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The Era in which the World Becomes a Cheap Act

Kentucky ‘nun’ Rosemarie Smead, who self-ordained herself a ‘priest’ to push the envelope for a dissident group operating outside of official Roman Catholic Church authority,  has about as much chance of striking credibility as the men who think wearing the women’s underwear manufactured by HommeMystere will get any closer to really being a femme.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee(D-Texas) Spends $23K on Round-the -World Trip: Why?

Rachel Maddow: Islamic Terrorism? Never Heard of It

In just the latest example of liberal media types trying to redefine the motivations of the Boston bombers, whose motivation was made all too clear when Dzhokhar Tsarnaev admitted to authorities that “religious fervor” led to his actions, Rachel Maddow did her best last week to pretend that there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism and anyone who believes otherwise is a tin cap wearing idiot.

The Big Fat Red Line

Someone chalked a long red line along the street outside my building. The line is sloppy, it turns, wavers and meanders. Car tires have already rubbed it pink in places and dogs have done to it what large four-legged animals do naturally when taken out of the confines of narrow apartments. The line turns a corner and dives inside a pothole near an exposed sewer grate. And then it is gone.

Time to Derail the Saudi “Visa Express”

Preferential, fast-lane treatment for Saudi visa applicants should be considered on a reciprocal basis, with verifiable Saudi progress in stopping funding for Wahhabi-Salafist mosque construction; Salafist and Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated imams; anti-Semitic, anti-Christian and anti-West curriculum materials and jihadi fighters everywhere on Sharia battlefields.

Let the French Pay for UNESCO

National Review

Here comes the next chapter in perverse U.S. priorities at the United Nations. While the federal government has been pleading that it is too broke to provide White House tours or pay air-traffic controllers, the State Department is itching to fork over more than $233 million to a United Nations agency in Paris — despite U.S. laws preventing them from doing so.

Undercover videos highlight monstrous nature of abortion ‘doctors’

Over the weekend, undercover videos filmed by the anti-abortion group Live Action began popping up on YouTube.  The tapes, which were surreptitiously recorded over the last six months, showcase abortion “doctors” in the Washington D.C. area as they casually discuss ending the lives of babies who have managed to survive the abortion process.

Ted Cruz explains how just the threat of filibuster stopped gun control

When GOP Senators killed Rand Paul’s gun control filibuster, conservatives within the party were livid. It was widely viewed as “yet another betrayal” at the hands of the usual suspects – namely John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and their cadre of turncoat RINO’s.  Putting it bluntly, constitutionalists are sick and tired of watching their supposed allies capitulate on the very ideals they’re being sent to Washington to defend.
