All Presidents have had to deal with events around the world that seemed to call for a military response, but it was President Eisenhower who laid down the doctrine to avoid what he called “brushfire wars”, outbreaks such as we have seen in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, and, in particular, Libya.
Eisenhower had directed the defeat of Germany in World War Two as the Supreme Allied Commander before being urged to run for president. He would serve two terms and was… Continue

President Obama seems to get in the way of the recovery of our economy with every turn he makes. First with the continuation of the bailouts and then filing a lawsuit against Arizona for passing a law, S.B. 1070, that is practically parallel to a law that is already in the book's but is not being enforced by the Federal Government. He bows to foreign official's and pours money, which we don't have, into foreign countries that have only hatred for America. President Obama has appointed a tax… Continue

I know Im not the first one to come up with that, but that is how frightening things are becoming in this nation. The Muslim Brother hood along with Goeorge Soros millions and hired reporters that are admittedly joining in forces and clearly identifying themselves as communists. These forces are joining to liberate the Palestinians and overthrow the capitalist system by taking Israel with it. The useful idiots like Obama, Ried, and Schumer, are not going to be spared when it comes down to… Continue

Michelle Bachman spoke of reorganizing our government in order to re-establish America as the world economic leader in all respects. While I see no need to correct Representative Bachman, I hope to add to her comments. Well, in case she or others tend to believe the purpose of our government is to make America the economic leader, then I suggest that the actual purpose has more to do with service to we-the-people than it does in… Continue

"Impermissible." That's the word used last week by pro-tort-reformer Ted Frank on the Point of Law legal blog to describe the Constitutional status of H.R. 5, the "HEALTH Act," designed to pre-empt most health care-related lawsuits around the country. His post conceding that Congress should not "impermissibly…

This underlines the lawlessness in Arizona and especially in Sheriff Dupnick's county--Tucson. You remember him from his unfounded indictment of talk radio and the TEA Party when that lefty lunatic Loghner, who was not deemed to take the stand, shot Giffords and killed and wounded others. It's as though these thugs were hired away from MS13. Here's a post that gives some background and several videos:

A new study shows health care regulations will pose a "clear and present threat to social welfare."
A major segment of ObamaCare will force cuts in drug and medical device research that “will kill more people than it will help,” according to an astonishing study quoted in Reason Magazine May 24. The government medical program was sold as… Continue

An Entrepreneurial Plan to build a 2012 Landslide for Freedom.
The most common frustration I hear when speaking to people about the upcoming 2012 elections is people just do not know what they can really do RIGHT NOW to make a sufficient difference to stop the socialist agenda.
A common refrain is that our "choir" is better educated, understands the Constitution more and knows just how horrific the socialist agenda is for America, but… Continue

What is honor? How do we define it? More importantly, Continue
perhaps, is how do we practice or hold it? According to one of the many
versions of Webster’s, honor
is “high regard or respect, glory, fame, good reputation, or adherence to
principles considered right, integrity.” Most of us seem capable of recognizing
honor when we witness it, and fewer of us appear equipped to routinely practice
it. For many, an honorable person is one who is worthy of…

Many of us were either amused, disgusted or outraged by the story of Stanley, the “adult baby,” a 29-year old man who finds comfort in dressing and behaving like an infant. The outrage comes from the fact he receives Social Security disability payments for his condition, which has a name – “infantalism” – and for which he is compensated with our tax dollars, even though he’s well… Continue

Usually, we post once per day, but today was one of those just right days to share “what’s new, not so new and what might be.”
A few persons of interest have arrived at the Club Obama house the past several years, Eric Holder (Oh No), Old Ben (Bernanke) the one who’s responsible for popping the “Housing Bubble” and master mind of inflation.
Don’t let these two out of your site – every time you buy gas,… Continue

Well it’s been an extremely busy week for the Liberal news media. They don’t comprehend reality or truth, nor do they have any special allegiance to our Nation or to those living within our borders.
Anyone who disagrees is considered an enemy. Sean Hannity, Charles Krauthammer, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bret Baier, all Republicans and a slew of other conservative groups are on their “hit… Continue

This is the day we remember those who have fallen in battle, thereby making the supreme sacrifice in service to our great nation. Too many of us don't fully recognize what this day symbolizes. So I am offering a Memorial Day prayer, both to give my thanks and hopefully help us all be a little more appreciative. Here it is:… Continue

Memorial Day, begun as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the Civil War, by the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as ordinary people visited the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not. It also became a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family get-togethers, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media…

The University of Virginia, after vigorously resisting a Freedom of Information Act (FOI) request for data related to the emails of Michael Mann, was the subject of a court order to make them available. While global warming is known worldwide for its claim that manmade warming would doom the Earth, the names and machinations behind the fraud are far less well known.
Mann, a climatologist, was part of a relatively small clique of charlatans who, working for… Continue
