In 1919 the eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution prohibited the manufacture, sale or transportation of “intoxicating liquors” in the United States and by 1933 the era of prohibition was over when the twenty-first Amendment rescinded it. Alcohol consumption was and is a social problem, but sometimes the government is not the right vehicle for dealing with them.
The United States is a huge market for what are deemed illegal drugs and, for many…Continue
Have you noticed recently that every single initiative and statement mad by the environmental movement has an underlying theme that remains constant, no matter what the complained about crime against Mother Earth? These stories or proclamations always go something like this, "the upcoming environmental disaster is a threat to all life on the planet, and the only way to put a stop to that threat, thereby saving humanity and all living creatures is to adopt Marxism as a…Continue

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you NOT a member of the Tea Party?”…Continue
Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In and Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, has a line in her book that states "I want every little girl who's told she's bossy to be told instead that she has leadership…Continue
WASHINGTON, April 14, 2014 — There is a bill in Washington, quietly introduced by Steve Stockton, R-Texas, which has the potential to change the game on national gun politics. Of course there are many bills which sit idly on agendas, on committees, waiting to be read by those who could probably care less about its success or passage. All of these bills concerning firearm rights have a potential impact on the freedoms of American gun owners and the gun industry, but what…Continue

Does this question not resonate whenever one thinks of the ‘debauchery’ that has occurred to the American dollar by government design. ‘Why is Bernie Madoff incarcerated, while the administration, the congress, and the bureaucracy that is their agents, not? Perhaps there should be a punishment much more than just incarceration, but that’s a personal choice.
Attempting to even comprehend why…Continue
In honor of Passover starting this evening, with Tuesday being the first full day, I thought I'd go in a slightly different direction. A completely non religious discussion inspired by a religious event or celebration. Passover, for my non-Jewish friends is at its core, a celebration of freedom. More specifically, it means to those of us who are Jewish, our deliverance from bondage, (enslavement,) by God, and as a consequence of that deliverance, the agreement that we would live our lives…Continue
Equal PayObama is horrified, stupefied, demoralized by the false statistic that women only earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.Does he care that there are men who deservedly earn more? Or does he want to flatten all wages in…

For the first time in 10 years, Russia last year spent a bigger share of its overall economy on arms investments than the U.S. as it seeks to bolster its military capability, a Swedish arms watchdog said Monday. (Alexei Nikolsky / AFP via Getty Images)
Another well played chess move by Putin. Russia's increased energy prices in Ukraine and a demand to pay…Continue
I have not been as active in my patriotic blogs in the past month or so, but this Bundy land-grab event has given me the motivation to speak out again. I am a 79-yr-old widow who has no gun, but I was a professional writer & investigative reporter for ~30 yrs, and devoted the last 10 years in trying to save our freedoms. I will speak out for the >100th time with my own suggestions.
First of all, we need to learn the voting backgrounds of every local, county, state and…Continue

I've been reading lately about an alleged war going on in the GOP. Is this for real? The supposed "battle for the soul of the GOP" has for years been the cover story intended to divert attention from the GOP's treacherous role in the process of destroying America's soul.
I feel sorry for sincere proponents of liberty who are still foolish enough to believe that the GOP is disposed to offer any real alternative to the…Continue

What in the hell is happening to America? For over five years, our freedoms have been unabashedly and arrogantly taken away from us by an obsessive-compulsive administration that demands ultimate control over our lives at the expense of the liberties we were granted in the Constitution. Eroding those freedoms also has a price in addition to the end of individual liberty. With the loss of freedom comes a reduction in our country’s security. Here, in no particular order, is a list of…Continue
Ignore-and-die instead of stop-and-frisk
Top New York cop Bill Bratton refuses to back off his criticism of Ray Kelly. Bratton announces that “he inherited a department where morale was in the toilet.” He doesn’t realize that morale is in the toilet because there are dead bodies in the street and all the rolls of Charmin toilet paper have been flushed into the tidy bowl of…Continue
For over two hundred and thirty years the Republic has weathered wars, epidemics, hostile neighbors, worldwide conflicts, economic disasters, internal struggles, and competing ideologies. Its birth was a long and desperate struggle for independence against the strongest and most advanced military in the world. In the War of 1812 its capital was burned to the ground. It suffered the growing pains of expansionism against hostile natives as well as unfriendly claims and competition by Spain,…Continue
The Customer is Always Right - Except where Healthcare is Concerned
The Invisible Hand, Adam Smith called it. A free market, one truly free, presupposes no judgment upon the collective actions of the participants, since that market will necessarily discipline those who overstep their moral boundaries. Smith understood that the Market is actually an expression of Natural Law, and as such comes from God, and is not merely a construct of Man. The construct of…
Often perceptions coming from the "other side of the hill" prove both interesting and enlightening. Such is certainly the case when speaking of Marco Rubio!
Please visit www.eaglesforamerica.com This week's post takes a closer look at Florida's Junior Senator. Could it be that the joke will actually be on Democrats?
Many users of this blog openly scorn Marco Rubio as a "R.I.N.O." Based on his voting record, they're not only wrong,…Continue
