- Vote Down the Iranian Deal!
Congress has but one option, vote against the deal and send a message to the Democratic Party candidates running to replace Obama, in particular Obama's former Secretary of State. Do you stand with Obama and Kerry or the American people? We are less safe today than when Obama took office. Now, let's see Hillary Clinton defend her record and that of her former boss. And for those, who are forever yelling bipartisanship, well this is a good time to practice it. Bipartisanship calls for Congress to recover some of its institutional powers and vote down this agreement.
- Time for Goodbye to The Donald?
For me, I was never sold on Trump as a true conservative but an actor playing a role. His comments about Mexicans was painting a brush too wide about an important voting bloc and his most recent comment about John McCain showed a candidate who simply can’t keep a filter on his mouth.
- Sanders and Trump
The key to a Republican victory is to sell the concept that the GOP has the right ideas and solutions to relieve the economic anxiety facing many voters while pointing out the failure of Democratic leftist economic policies. Outsider candidates like Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker are doing exactly that, tapping into that anxiety. The GOP has a shot to win this race but it means they have to understand the anxiety of voters and show how their policies will work for the average Middle Class voters.
- Who is the Real Donald Trump?
A political operative friend of mine told me that Donald Trump has the ability to connect with the guy at the end of the bar who knows the system is not working and is stuck in an economic rut not of his making. That is a strength that can’t be overlooked. Trump is a street fighter and God Knows, Republicans could use a few street fighters. He is taking on the establishment of both Parties but is he the right messenger?
- Is the Greek Crisis Our Future?
Is the Greek Crisis our future? No matter how you spin it, the failure of Greece is a failure of leftist economics where Greeks ran out of someone else’s money. The flight from reality was present in their last vote but it is also is a failure of the European Union since the EU has…
- Contradictions of the Left Doom It
The week of June 22nd 2015, may be the week that represents the high point of leftist victories. They got gay rights. They got the Supreme Court to bail out Congress on Obamacare in one of the worst judicial decision ever handed down. The Court rewrote Obamacare to keep it legal and demonstrated that for the modern left; words have no meaning. I could go on but if nothing else, we found out that the leftist view point “law is politics” is now the law of the land. Or simply we have no law but the law of men and that whatever Congress passes means nothing.
- Hillary’s Plan to Win
Team Hillary's goal is not to just to win an election but to win a decisive victory. That would cement her mandate while cementing the left's hold on policy. Additionally, a decisive victory would add seats to the house and would recapture the Senate.
- Republican Candidates Better than Hillary!
In this election cycle, the Republicans suffer from a problem of riches where voters will find that there may be at least seven or eight candidates superior to those running for the Democratic nomination including front runner Hillary Clinton.
- Media’s Love Affair with the Clinton’s
So either the majority of Democrats are totally uniformed or the media that they depend upon Is not covering the real story. (Of course, it could be both.
- The World Is Not Yet Over
Their point is that we are still looking for answers on what causes climate change, whether in the the past or what will cause it in the future and they have been far more correct in their analyst than alarmist. That is a fact. The only denier of real science are the climate alarmist like Bill Nye, “the Science denier guy” and Al Gore.
- George Stephanopoulos Must Go
When dealing with George Stephanopoulos, conservatives should simply follow the acronym WWDD (What Would Democrats Do?). If Megyn Kelly had provided a softball interview of Jeb Bush and we found out that she contributed to the Bush Foundation; how quickly would the left demand Fox fire Kelly? Even MSNBC suspended Keith Olberman for contributing to…
- Big Green Loves The Taxpayer
In my piece on Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway, I quoted Buffett and his Co-Chair Munger's own admission; much of the green technology they invest in like wind and solar energy is dependent upon government subsidies to survive.
- Climate Realists Are Right – Alarmists Are Wrong!!!
“Follow the science and you will find that climate realists are more right than the climate alarmist and do you want deny the Middle Class high paying jobs and the poor cheaper energy based on science that is imploding?
- Goodbye to the Clintons?
If Hillary Clinton continues to sink in the polls in contrast to her Republicans’ opponents or simply her unfavorables continues to sink even further, when do Democrats decide the time has come to challenge the Queen and end her career?
- A Weekend with Warren and Charlie
Berkshire Hathaway is the complete opposite as 40,000 stockholders flooded Omaha and spent the whole day rummaging through the various exhibits of companies that Berkshire either owns or invests in while listening to Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman, Charlie Munger hold court while answering questions from analysts, reporters and most importantly, the stockholders. For nearly six hours, the 84 year old Buffet and 91 year old Munger answer questions with no notes about the companies they own. During the questioning they exhibit their sharp sense of humor which keeps the meeting going. It is one of the quickest six hours you will ever sit through. At times they resemble funnyman Lou Costello and straight man, Bud Abbott.
- Is a Libertarian Moment at Hand?
Ron Paul's presidential run for the White House in 2008 and 2012 and now his son's have brought focus on the Libertarian moment within the Republican Party. When one looks at the Libertarian movement over the past decade, its greatest success has been accomplished on the fringes with voters wilingness to support same-sex marriage and drug legalization. However, its biggest failures have been a retreat from those liberties that stabilize our society, freedom of speech and religion and defense of free markets.
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens And Does The Jedi Truly Return?
Star Wars The Force Awakens will reach the theater on Christmas and it will be interesting to see how the new movie follows up on the themes of the previous six episodes. It could easily be said that if Star Wars started with the first episode, The Phantom Menace as oppose to the fourth episode A New Hope; we may never have seen the fourth through six episode; which were the best of the series obviously. But I am not one of those who viewed the first three episode as failures but each had their own qualities.
- Media Bias Matters
If you want to know the real story about America, you might want try reading a British newspaper. How many Americans will read in their daily newspaper that Hillary's tour of the little people were staged events? The British Daily Mail reported that one of Hillary’s coffee stops featured Democratic operatives who were driven to the shop as part of a “spontaneous” meeting. Can we say staged event? And we had to read it in a British Newspaper?
- Hillary Video Sets the Theme
The battle will be fought over the Middle Class concerns and the Democrats understand that. The Hillary video is a sign that the Democrats get it. Rubio's own announcement the next day showed that at least one Republican gets it.
- Robert Menendez More Corruption?
The message is clear from the White House, any attempt to join Republicans in questioning Obama’s policy on the Middle East and the Iranian treaty will result in possible investigation and indictment.
