    President Obama is making Immigration the top priority of his last two years in office. He's going to do it without Congress. He's going to use his pen.

  • Election 2014 – The GOP Party!

    In early August, I wrote an article about Election 2014. In that article, I stated some things that had to happen for the GOP to take the Senate. I assumed West Virginia, Montana and South Dakota would flip. I also assumed the GOP would retain Kentucky and Georgia. And, I went further and said that Iowa and Colorado were truly up for grabs. As it turns out, I was correct on all these points.

  • The Cold War Returns

    Last week, Vladimir Putin decided it was time to bring back heated rhetoric against the west. While speaking at what was obviously a rigged press conference in Sochi, he stated that America's brand of imperialism will no longer be tolerated. Russia would be poised to expand its influence into Eastern Europe in what were once its satellite countries. It sounded like the Ukraine was only the beginning. And, it sounded like we were witnessing a return to the Cold War.

  • Workplace Violence?

    In late 2009, a Major, that's right, "a Major," in the United States Army, began firing his weapons in Fort Hood, Texas. Before he was finished, he had killed 13 American, many of them soldiers and wounded 30 others. The White House, under the idiot in chief, Barack Obama, labelled this an incident of "Workplace Violence." I can tell you for a fact that anyone who starts shooting people while screaming Islamic slogans is not acting within the definition of 'workplace violence.'

  • World War III

    Regardless of when you say World War III began, the enemy to the Western World is the same. It is radical Islam. It is a sect of Islam that does not believe in co-existence. It does not believe in a world economy. It does not believe in any form of peaceful relations with those who disbelieve. It believes in one think: jihad. And, it is the aggressor and the bad guy.

  • India – 2014

    Remember, India is not only the worlds largest democracy. It is a country of 1.3 billion potential consumers. Even Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, just finished a trip there in which he promised to help India clean up and improve its infrastructure . The fact that India is also their largest potential client base I'm sure didn't hurt either. Actually, most of the United States business world is probably beginning to smell the consumerism potential.

  • Tiananmen Hong Kong

    Are they Hong Kong protest on their way to becoming the next Tananamen Square Massacre? Is China going to prove they are just another Soviet style regime?

  • India Mars?

    The Indian space program has landed a vehicle upon Mars. You may be saying India Mars? I'm saying the same thing. I want to be saying United States Mars.

  • Nothing To Write

    I'm sitting in my hotel room in Thailand and trying to come up with a column. Unfortunately, I cannot think of anything to write about. This might sound like a classic case of writer's block, but it really isn't. The truth of the matter is; there is nothing new to write about. Current events right now are just more of the same.

  • The Gilded Age

    The Gilded Age is defined as the period from about 1870 to roughly 1900. This is a period that is rarely taught in school - at least when I went to school. And, it is a period in which the United States was pretty much molded into the country we have today. It was period of massive accumulation of wealth as a result of the industrial revolution. And, it was a period of massive growth of poverty as a result of immigration and labor practices of the new industrial giants.

  • Crowdfunding Abortion?

    GoFundMe just shut down a campaign to raise money for crowdfunding abortion. That's right, you didn't read that wrong. A pregnant woman, who claims she cannot afford an abortion, set up a campaign on a crowd funding site to finance her abortion.

  • Sotloff – Another American Dead

    SIS must be stopped. It is clearer every day that ISIS must be stopped. Rhetoric from Joe Biden will not do it. Lack of action from President Obama will not do it. Leadership is needed in the United States right now. Leadership like George Bush I showed after Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990.

  • Obama has “No Plan” for ISIS

    Not, having a plan is not a solution. Even, John Boehner, told Obama last week, Congress would support military intervention against ISIS. For six years, Obama has stating that Congress does nothing to support him. Boehner threw you the lifeline. Now, President Obama, please make a decision for the good of the country. Accept that the world is not Utopian. Start killing people that want to kill us. Follow the example of Israel. Do not follow the example of Neville Chamberlin. We're already at war, whether you want to acknowledge it or not.

  • Does Ferguson Really Matter?

    Ferguson is getting all of the attention these days. Unfortunately, it is a distraction from the real danger which is ISIS and the rise of Radical Muslim.

  • Christian Genocide

    Christian Genocide has been going on in the Radical Muslim world for the past ten years and has been relatively ignored in the main stream media.

  • The Lonely Planet

    This is truly a Lonely Planet and is becoming a lonelier one mostly because of technology.  Every now and then I will write an article off topic.  This one has nothing to do with politics.  It has to do more with Sociology.  Actually, the Sociology of our times.  And, maybe some thoughts about where we […]

    Mr. DeMartini
    Thank you for posting an article about Frank Cervone. My step-father is a wonderful man. He has always treated me as if I was his own flesh & blood, even when I didn’t want him to. My husband, our 2 kids & myself spent this past Christmas holiday with Frank & Mom. No matter how bad he felt, he was always making sure that we were enjoying ourselves. I have never heard him complain about how unfair this disease is or feel sorry for himself. He is always smiling and willing to help anyone that he can. Frank is a fighter & inspires awe in those who are lucky enough to be called his family & friends. The world will be a little darker, when we lose him.

    Thanks for putting Frank Cervone’s story out there for others to see. He and his wife are great people and so strong in the face of such adversity. They are truly a love story that should be told amid the MSA story. Its been our honor to know them. And he truly has always cared for his community. There are so many good things to say about them. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

    Frank,

    Enjoyed the conversation concerning Ira Schwartz’s “In My Opinion” article concerning Michele Bachmann . I wish you success in your career and if you really believe what you wrote in your replies to me then you are a rare breed. I have a brother-in-law who is “in the business” (one of his earler gigs was as assistant director and upi on the television show “NewsRadio”). My sister and he are still married (due to her determination) and have a beautiful family. He is a nice enough sort but lives in that socially incestual bubble of La La Land. I have met many of their friends and his co-workers and I have come to believe that they really have no clue what “Middle America” is and believe that everyone feels the same as they do. Actually I am not sure if they even care what anyone thinks unless it agrees with their narrow view. Anyway good luck!

    Frank, I meant upm not upi.

  6. Rob on November 14, 2011 at 5:15 am

    Frank,

    What are your thoughts on the John Dickerson (CBS News)e-mail concerning the non-questioning of Michele Bachmann during the debate? As I have said the media has done everything they can to marginilize her and the sheeple acquiesce.

    • Frank DeMartini on November 14, 2011 at 9:36 am

      I have not seen the email, but I feel that the lesser candidates are being ignored. I only wish they would ignore Mitt Romney too.

      • Rob on November 15, 2011 at 5:41 am

        So true.

    Interesting compendium of campaign contribution or registration allegiances of “celebs”. Probably not fully representative though. The leanings of Hollywood’s glitterati ARE important because theirs is a free soapbox yet they lack competence to speak with authority from. Many of the right would stay out of the fray because they are less vain than vociferous but emptyheaded leftists. Yet others who are aware of the wholesale blackballing of non Progressives only want to continue to see work. Explain why a Gore Vidal or an Alec Baldwin, or Matt Damon –true America haters — are a shoe in for casting as a general or statesman or Marine, or why Hanoi Jane gets to play Nancy Reagan? There’s gotta be others with equally alluring dentition, or “glutes,” that can read their lines. Then there are the behind the scenes Producers & writers who don’t have quite the visibility. The Weinsteins and their minions who picks and then mold the radical plotlines that demonize free enterprise and responsible living. Unless we as citizens become our own Observers, readers, researchers and spokespeople we remain under the tyranny of their Almighty Opinions on National Policy.
