2014 Election


A McClatchy news report indicates the United States has stopped funding and supplying “moderate” Syrian rebels who were supposed to help contain ISIS in Syria. While rebel leaders told McClatchy that a few months ago they were receiving “all kinds of support,” the well has apparently gone dry. The reason given for the new lack of …

What do people think of when they hear of a “failed rescue attempt” announced by either a government spokesman or a member of the media? What about when you hear from the same people that a member of a Special Forces unit was killed during a failed rescue attempt? To the uninformed, one would think …

As I predicted in 2013, 2014 turned out to be a great year for the Tea Party. Conservatives didn’t get everything they wanted. We’re still stuck with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, but we’ve added some good people to the ranks of the GOP. We’ll know very soon if the can hold the line against …

In 2010, voters sent a message to Barack Obama that they were unhappy with the way he was running the country. Reeling from having Obamacare forced upon on us even though the majority of Americans were against it, voters returned control of the House to Republicans. In 2012, the majority of voters proved that they …

In 2010, Wisconsin was an economic disaster. Newly elected Republican Governor Scott Walker did the unthinkable when he started cutting state spending and reducing the deficit. Since that time, he has turned Wisconsin’s economy around. His economic policies have created jobs and revitalized neighborhoods and families. Without the help of a Republican controlled state legislature, …

So how about that election? Somebody told me that we recently had one and that Republicans creamed the opposition, giving control of Congress to the GOP. Perhaps someone forgot to tell Speaker of the House John Boehner, because there’s talk going around that he is looking to gain Nancy Pelosi’s support on a spending bill …

The Republican take over the US Senate may not be over. In Louisiana, no one got 50% of the vote in the Senate race, so they are having a runoff election on Saturday, Dec. 6 between Democratic incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu and her Republican challenger Bill Cassidy. In the Nov. 4, election, Landrieu took 42.1% …

Saturday Night Live has been skewering presidents for years. Chevy Chase’s bumbling Gerald Ford and Will Ferrell’s George W. Bush impersonations are the most memorable. “Strategery,” a word used by Ferrell (Bush) in his mock debate with Al Gore, has become a part of the English language. Rush Limbaugh uses it all the time. But …

Everyone should be paying attention to the example of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He’s been the definition of action on the subject of illegal immigration. He hasn’t given up on protecting the citizens of Maricopa County despite ongoing harassment by the media and the federal government itself. Now, in response to President Obama’s illegal granting of executive …

With each day that passes, it becomes more and more obvious that the Democratic Party not only believes it didn’t lose the recent election, but it believes that the time is right for President Obama to finish his takeover of authority delegated to Congress by the Constitution. Global warming, Ferguson violence and executive amnesty compose …

I generally like Brit Hume. But over the weekend, I believe he got it wrong in opposing Obama regarding his promise to use an Executive Order to implement amnesty. Here’s what Hume said: “It’s a total blunder to try that, because if the President were to veto the bill, a bill that would keep the …

In 2009, James Carville, the Democrat’s “Ragin’ Cajun,” wrote 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation. It was the heyday of liberal Democrat ascendancy. “A Democratic majority is emerging,” Carville declared. “This majority will guarantee that the Democrats remain in power for the next forty years.” When it comes to politics, …
