Constitution

Horror author Stephen King said that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is “very scary” because he “is a fundamentalist Christian.” He went on to say in an interview with the Daily Beast: “He’s very scary. I actually think Trump, in the end, would be more electable than Cruz because Cruz is a fundamentalist Christian and …

christians and politics

Let’s get a few preliminaries out of the way. First, there is no doubt that there are few differences between the two major parties. With both Houses of Congress owned by the Republicans, one would think that the claimed differences would have come out and the GOP would have fought for the principles they claim …

Robert Reich “served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and was Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997. . . . He was appointed a member of President-elect Barack Obama’s economic transition advisory board. . . . Time magazine named him one of the Ten Best Cabinet Members of the century, and The Wall Street Journal in 2008 placed him sixth on …

Freedom go to hell

Ted Cruz was born in Canada to a mother who is a natural born Citizen and a father who is a naturalized citizen. Ted Cruz’s father immigrated to the United States and lived here before going to Canada for work. According to some conservatives and liberals, Ted Cruz is not constitutionally eligible to be President …

Taliban Released from Gitmo

For years the refrain we’ve been hearing from the left has been to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Of course Gitmo isn’t just a prison – it’s a major military operational hub for the Caribbean theater, Central and South America. And frankly I’m not sure whether the left wishes only to close the prison or …

art of the steal

The GOP Establishment believed Jeb Bush was their guy. The two earlier Bush Presidents grew the government. There was no reason that a third Bush wouldn’t do the same. Sen. Ted Cruz was not the Establishment’s pick. He would not help them fund their pet projects. When you have Bob Dole and John McCain — …

The Second Amendment states, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” You will notice that there are no qualifications. In fact, the right to keep and bear arms is said to be “necessary to the …

In god we trust dollar bill_detail

A group of atheists wants the courts to declare the phrase “In God We Trust” unconstitutional and removed from our nation’s currency. These atheists are the secular version of the Islamic State who go about destroying anything related to competing religions. And atheism is a religion. “Satellite images confirm that the oldest Christian monastery in Iraq has …

It’s a well-rehearsed story that occurs annually like clockwork as soon as the Christmas trees, menorahs and nativity scenes start appearing across the country. Every holiday season, some atheists get their undies in a bunch because they can’t stand that everybody else is celebrating. So like the proverbial Grinch whose heart was two sizes too …

criminals love gun control

I thought about whether I should write an article on how gun control advocates might go about confiscating guns with almost no physical force. They might actually do it just like this. “So, I would like you to explain with 350 million guns in 65 million places, households, from Key West, to Alaska, 350 million …

Jefferon's pocket pistol

The Atlantic published an article entitled “Do Republicans Have Any Real Reason to Worry about Gun Confiscation?” It’s written from the perspectives of an American gun advocate, an Australian living in the U.S., and an anti-gun nut.   I think we all know where I come down on the subject, as everyone should if they …

Monkey citizens

I’ve been amazed how many so-called conservatives are appealing to Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Tribe as an authority on what a natural born citizen is. He’s a very weak reed too lean on for lots of reasons. Pick almost any subject, and Tribe is most likely on the other side. Tribe has described Ted Cruz …
