Apologies to Doriangrey, who's line I've borrowed for my headline. I find it to be as prescient today as it was when he originally wrote it, almost exactly four years ago.
From the headline, you may have guessed that I'm not a fan of, "The Donald." If you've guessed that, you'd be wrong. I am a fan of, "The Donald." I'm just not a fan of the prospect that we may actually see a, "Nominee Donald," or worse yet, a, "President Donald." I'll watch the spectacle of rats…Continue
While serving as President, Woodwrow Wilson, the second progressive to serve in that capacity, stated that in order to truly understand the Declaration of Independence, one should ignore everything but the enumerated grievances against King George. According to President Wilson, the enumerated grievances are the only piece of this document worth our attention. Of course, true to Leftist form, when this is done, the whole reference to natural law and our rights coming from God rather than…Continue
So last week, I read an excellent post by my friend Cold Warrior concerning the situation in Greece, in which he predicted this week's events would play out, pretty much as they have thus far. In short, the Central Bankers, that same group of geniuses who extolled the virtues of deficit spending, quantitative easing, debt monetization, fiat currency, and all of the other benefits Keynesian Economic Theory promises, including telling politicians that it's actually beneficial…Continue
So I woke up to something that had me laughing for a good little bit this morning. Apparently, somewhere in the Liberal Mecca known as the Left, or West Coast, depending upon who your favorite cable news service happens to be, there exists a chapter of the NAACP who's President happens to have been born with a lighter shade of pigmentation than one would expect for someone holding that position. Now, I'm not one for identity politics, and indeed I find the whole concept to…Continue
I believe that it's important to note Hillary's first appearance in public life. She worked as Associate Council for the House Judiciary Committee, while they were investigating the Watergate scandal. Her boss was a lawyer named Jeffrey Zeifman. While Snopes has labeled this story as false, it is important to note that the only point of contention was whether Zeifman actually fired Hillary, or if she quit her job prior to being fired. The particulars of Zeifman's assertions have never been…Continue
First, here's the text of the act itself:
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent…
We'll start here, simply to address those buffoons who are going to claim that this is faux outrage prior to any other discussion. A conservative estimate on Hillary's legal penalty should a miracle happen and actual prosecution for this obvious felony take place, would be somewhere North of 150,000 years in West Virginia's Club Fed For Women, give or take a dozen or so centuries. I'm told that with good behavior, she could get out in about half that time.
Tip of the hat to The Daily Caller whose video I did not embed here due to their insistence upon the usage of autoplay, something I view as evil. Please click here, for their story, complete with a recorded phone conversation in which an apologetic banker gets to tell a business owner who had held an account at said bank for over a decade, that the government had forced his account to be frozen for…Continue
Those who can not remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.

There is so much that's cool about the Book of Esther, excluding of course the Hippy effort to form their own religion out of it, mistakenly referred to as kabbalah. One of the cool things about the Book of Esther is that it allows me to keep hold of my…Continue
Here's Mark Levin's Speech from CPAC on Saturday. My suggestion would be to skip ahead to 5:37 on the counter, as that's when Levin's speech actually begins. He really said pretty much, in typical eloquence, what most of us on the right have been thinking for years. He lets both Democrats, and Republicans have it with both barrels.…Continue
Do you recall the famous speech delivered on 8 December, 1941, in which Franklin Roosevelt stood before a joint session of Congress and declared that we needed to lend a sympathetic ear of understanding to the Japanese People, who had legitimate grievances against the American People, since we had tried to land on their island as uninvited potential trade partners some 3…Continue
At it's founding as a free nation in 1966, Botswana started out as the third poorest nation on Earth. Her per capita income was $70 per year. She was the very definition of third world impoverishment, that sickeningly sad example of people waiting to be exploited by Sally Struthers and every other huckster wishing to extract donations from the well fed and not too bright. (I'd like to note here that I'm not anti charity, but anti pretend charity. Most of those…Continue
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,
nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to
the States respectively, or to the people.
With the focus clearly on Washington in Barack Obama's latest example of trying in earnest to render our founding document obsolete, many of our number forgot entirely that 26 of our several states took it upon themselves to put an end to the President's clearly…Continue
A couple of days ago, I wrote a post which highlighted the dangers of forcing law enforcement authorities to misappropriate resources by investigating fallacious reports alleging criminal activity. Unfortunately, the Liberal practice of deflecting attention from real problems and towards make believe problems does not end at the borders of law enforcement. It continues into just about every other aspect of our societal existence. The most dangerous of those places of…Continue
As far as those self aggrandizing Hollywierd award parties go, I usually hold them in the same esteem as the Super Bowl Half Time silliness. Which pretty much means it is usually time I reserve for licking stamps, cleaning hair out of my comb, or perhaps the all important task of organizing my dog's linkedin contact list. I really couldn't care less about what our show people think of themselves. What they think of me, someone whom they've never, met matters even less.
Yet for some…Continue
I'm not sure when moral equivalency became an accepted debate tactic, but I can state unequivocally, I don't respect the arguments when made, and those who make them lose a lot of my respect as well. It is nothing short of intellectual dishonesty, and worse yet, moral cowardice. At a National Prayer Breakfast earlier this week, our President, Barack Hussein Obama, told us that we shouldn't consider the ISIS execution of a Jordanian POW to be evil, because Christians were…Continue
On June 23, 2015, I published this blog post endorsing Scott Walker for President. He's got what we, meaning every right of center citizen living throughout the Fruited Plains, is looking for politically speaking. He's a proven warrior, has won tough elections, never backed down from his principles or beliefs, and has true conservative bona fides.
He's taken on the special…Continue
We get it all in this 57 second clip. Moronic sophistry, far reaching moral equivalency that would shame Johnny Cochran, a healthy dose of blame the victims, and all of it presented in a seemingly serious manner, as if hours of thought and debate provided us with this hard hitting gem of liberal moon battery.
Catch that? Go ahead and watch it again. Notice how Alex Wagner…Continue
As a young lad attending The Ohio State University, I had the eye opening experience of being an ancillary subject in about half a dozen articles which appeared in our student newspaper, "The Lantern." I learned some lessons in 1984 which I've carried with me throughout my life. One, journalists make up the single laziest profession outside of psychics. Two, their stories, conclusions, overarching themes, and any statements related to them, have all been decided upon far in advance of any…Continue
Last night's speech, made by our petulant man child President marked a turning point in history. It has the potential to be the completion of that fundamental transformation of America promised by Barack Obama. In the blink of an eye, we went from being the most powerful nation on Earth, the last remaining super power, the greatest creator of wealth ever seen in human history, to a nation on the precipice of existing solely as a third world banana republic. The reason I say…Continue
