Conservative lawmakers’ secret Mideast trip could foreshadow Obama downfall

Dec 24, 2013 — Erik Rush

Apparently, there are at least three American lawmakers who have determined to do their jobs, this being to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. Unlike the craven, egocentric, self-aggrandizing majority of our congressmen and senators, at great personal risk, Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and Steve King (R-IA) conducted an off-the-record trip (“mission” might actually be a better description) to the Middle East this past week.

Do Democrat lawmakers anticipate treason trials?

Dec 21, 2013 — Erik Rush

According to a report by Breitbart’s Elizabeth Sheld, eight Democrat lawmakers have proposed a bill that would eliminate the death penalty as a consequence for individuals convicted of numerous federal crimes, among them espionage and treason. Nothing happens in Washington without a reason, so The Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act (HR 3741) gives rise to a bevy of questions and suspicions.

Two D.C. Attacks and a Series of Unfortunate “Coincidences”

Oct 8, 2013 — Erik Rush

So - what do you think are the odds that within a few weeks of each other, two 34-year-old black people from Brooklyn, New York, with nothing in common so far as is known, begin acting out in the same U.S. city in such a manifestly dangerous manner after claiming to have been exposed to vague, arcane technology that they wind up having to be put down like animals by the local constabulary?

Michelle Obama: Prisoner at Large

Jul 8, 2013 — Erik Rush

As we’ve been apprised in the press, on July 2 Michelle Obama described living in the White House as being in a “really nice prison.” This occurred during a discussion with former First Lady Laura Bush at the “African First Ladies Summit” in Tanzania, an event that for some unfathomable reason merited moderation by NPR’s Cokie Roberts.

Liberals killed Trayvon Martin, and Jamiel Shaw, and…

Jun 17, 2013 — Erik Rush

What we do know for sure about the night of February 26, 2012, is that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death in Sanford, Florida, later claiming self-defense. Despite altogether too many having made up their minds about who was to blame within minutes of hearing of the incident, and the biased, tainted press reports, enough facts have subsequently shaken out that I believe a reliable determination can now be made as to why Martin died that night.

Islamists on the march? Move along; nothing to see here…

Obama, Cameron, Islamic violence

The gruesome killing of a British soldier in London this week by Islamists and the attendant reactions by the press and politicians make clear two things: One, that Islam cannot be treated as a legitimate faith in the American tradition and in the context of the First Amendment, and two, Americans must wrest control of our country from liberal-progressives with all due speed, and by any means necessary.

Last Week’s Conspiracy Theories are This Week’s Reality

May 18, 2013 — Erik Rush

It is now safe to say that if one cannot see the abject evil of the Obama administration as well as the endemic corruption and criminality in our federal government, it is only because they are refusing to look. Due to what some are calling a “perfect storm of circumstances, three scandals have rocked Washington, but these are only the grossest symptoms of the systemic infection that has been festering there for decades.

Benghazi and Boston: Maintaining the Momentum

May 10, 2013 — Erik Rush

When President Obama jokingly referred to himself as a former “Muslim socialist” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 27, several publications later quoting him scrubbed the word “Muslim” from the text. Why? Did editors perceive something imprudent with respect to their agenda in advertising that tidbit? Would there have been something offensive in representing Obama’s utterance of Moosleem in those characteristic, dulcet tones?

Comprehending the Incomprehensible

May 4, 2013 — Erik Rush

It is now apparent that not only did Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev abuse the United States’ asylum system, but that untold others hailing from countries with large populations of America-haters (many of them Muslims) have probably been doing likewise.

The Audacity of Narcissism

Apr 26, 2013 — Erik Rush

November 5, 2009 – Army psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan shouts “Allahu Akbar!” and opens fire at the Fort Hood army base in Texas. Thirteen are killed and twenty-nine injured (Later it is discovered that Hasan was mentored by Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni-American al-Qaeda cleric who is subsequently killed by an American drone attack in 2011).

Tangling With the Death Cult

As I finish writing this, authorities in Boston are closing in on the last Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, believed to be brother of another bombing suspect, who was killed late night in a shootout with police. - ER

Onward, Christian Ninjas!

“…I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. So be as cunning as serpents and as innocent as doves.”—Matthew 10:16

I wouldn’t waste much time arguing the equality of all humankind in the eyes of God with a white guy whom I’d heard declare “I hate niggers,” or with a member of the New Black Panther Party, who harbor similar sentiments against whites. Similarly, you won’t see me trying to convert those who demonstrate themselves to be part of the rising tide of Christophobes and anti-theists in our society – and I do hear from quite a few of those.

“Taking Our Temperature”

Apr 6, 2013 — Erik Rush

Progressive talking heads, including President Obama, recently adopted the idiom “a majority of the American people” in order to misrepresent public sentiment concerning their radical positions; suffice it to say that, in these cases, the truth has been quite the opposite.

Same-Sex Marriage: A Convenient Distraction

Mar 29, 2013 — Erik Rush

Out of frustration, apathy, and fear of conflict, I imagine a great many Americans of otherwise sound mind have fallen into the delusion that two homosexuals getting “married” doesn’t hurt them, so why not let them do so. Thus, overall opposition to the advancing phenomenon even among conservatives in America has been fairly lax.

Support Gun Makers Who Support You - Buy More guns!

Mar 22, 2013 — Erik Rush

It is time for Republicans on the federal level to learn from successful Republicans on the state level. It is time to smartly change course, modernize the Party, and learn once again how to appeal to more people, including those who share some but not all of our conservative principles.—Growth and Opportunity Project report, Republican National Committee

Gun Control Mirroring Health Care Reform

Obama's Gun Control Mirroring Health Care Reform

Last week, I was taken to task by liberal stalwart Alan Colmes on his radio show over a statement I’d made in a recent column that the government (and the Obama administration in particular) want Americans’ firearms because they know that they already merit being removed by force of arms.

Playing for Keeps on Gun Control

Mar 9, 2013 — Erik Rush

The inordinate backlash over the push for new, more stringent gun control laws in the United States is only “inordinate” to those who either understand nothing about the nation’s founding, the Constitution, and the Second Amendment, or those who wish to subvert same. Interestingly, the state of Colorado (where I happen to live) has become ground zero for the gun control discussion.

Look to South Africa

Mar 2, 2013 — Erik Rush

In my view, the most frustrating phenomenon relative to the reign of President Barack Obama is the unreserved sycophantic dedication held for him by the media. Indeed, a plethora of actions taken by his administration should have been enough to have him voted out of office, impeached, or indicted by now, but he has been shielded by the press and lionized by the entertainment media.

The intellectual dishonesty and outright duplicity of the press is not restricted to on-air deceptions regarding Obama, or even domestic issues. The aggregate compromise of America’s representation globally is being misrepresented, as are international events.

The Fool Who Follows

Feb 22, 2013 — Erik Rush

My dearly departed mother had a great comeback for children who attempted to blame siblings or friends for their greater public transgressions. Not that I ever found myself on the receiving end of this axiom, of course, but it went like this: “Who is worse – the fool, or the fool who follows him?”

You Don’t Negotiate With Terrorists – or Democrats

Feb 16, 2013 — Erik Rush

Leaving aside for the moment the likelihood that parties and party politics in America will become moot within the next few years (owing to the emergence of a single party or the country’s dissolution into civil war), conservatives and libertarians are finding themselves at an unpleasant crossroads. While some observers gave up on the leadership of the Republican Party long ago, it is now becoming apparent to rank-and-file Republicans that the GOP leadership and its prominent operatives are wholly complicit in the fundamental transformation of America.
