A political tidal wave just hit in Pennsylvania. When’s the last time a write-in candidate won an election? It doesn’t happen very often. But it happened in the Keystone State – for the first time. Will the establishment Republicans in other states take notice? Tea Party candidate Scott Wagner won a
Does the recent election of a Republican for mayor of San Diego indicate what might happen in the upcoming 2014 election? “A pro-business Republican candidate was elected San Diego’s new mayor after a special election to replace Bob [Filthy] Filner, a disgraced Democrat ousted last year. With results in from
Here’s my short answer to lifting the Cuba embargo: Yes! “The United States has had a trade embargo against Cuba for more than 50 years, but according to the latest survey, a majority of Americans favor normalizing relations with the Communist regime.” Maybe at the time an embargo was a
Oregon’s constitution states the following in Section 3 of Article 1 of the Bill of Rights: “Freedom of religious opinion. No law shall in any case whatever control the free exercise, and enjoyment of religious opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience.” The above sounds ironclad. A person in
We’re still hearing how global warming is killing the planet, even though more studies show that humans have nothing to do with changes planetary temperatures. It’s gotten so bad that falling temperatures are being used as evidence of rising temperatures. Pseudoscience is the new normal. We’ve seen this type of
My article on the inauguration of Bill de Blasio caused one Facebook reader to take me to task for identifying the newly sworn in mayor as a Marxist. When a politician starts talking about “income inequality” and promises to use the authority and force of government to “correct” it, that
I’m writing this before the release of the ObamaCare enrollment numbers. Why should we trust any number this administration reveals to us? There’s no way for us to check it. Obama lied about keeping our existing plans and doctors, what makes anyone think that he’s going to tell the truth
A friend sent me an image of King George III with the following text layered over the image. It reads: “You mean to tell me that we can tax them for NOT buying tea?” Can you imagine how much money could be raised by taxing people for not doing something?
I wonder how many jobless Americans are aware that their tax dollars went to a Canadian firm to build the HealthCare.gov website. CGI Federal is the IT company that built most of Healthcare.gov. You may remember that the shell of one of Obama’s campaign bus was manufactured in Canada. That
Well, if our government won’t do it, somebody’s got to stand up to Islamic extremism. So why not America’s bikers, an independent breed of men and women that doesn’t like to be pushed around. The biker group was denied a permit to hold a rally on 9/11, but they decided
Barronelle Stutzman is the owner of Arlene’s Flowers. When one of her customers, Robert Ingersoll, a homosexual, asked Stutzman to supply the flowers for his upcoming wedding with his male “partner,” she refused. She cited her religious beliefs. Stutzman never refused Ingersoll service when he ordered flowers for personal use.
When stories about the Boston Marathon bombings started coming in, the media sycophants had their profile narrative in hand. It looked like American right wing extremists were the likely perpetrators. Tax Day . . . Patriots Day . . . Waco Anniversary . . . Hitler’s birthday . . .
MSNBCs Toure Neblett, who is black, made the following racially charged and ignorant claim last week: “If Adam Lanza had walked into a black public school in this mythical South Brooklyn or in the Southside of Chicago, we would probably not be having a sustained national conversation about guns.” Most
Karen Lewis is the president of the Chicago Teachers Union. Chicago is the murder capital of the United States with more than 500 murders in 2012. So what’s the relationship? This “professional” educator said the following: “Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow
“The Journal News, which serves New York City’s northern suburbs, sparked an outcry last month when it published clickable online maps with the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester counties.” Gun owners are outraged that their personal information has been made public. Liberals are such
“If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to; the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon,” Bill Ayers said. “We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace,
“The Who” sung about it, warned about it, and Egypt got it: Meet the new boss Same as the old boss. Egypt’s president Mohammed Morsi “issued constitutional amendments that placed him above judicial oversight and ordered the retrial of Hosni Mubarak for the killing of protesters in last year’s uprising.”
I was shocked by reports that President Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy helped him get elected. Are they that fickled, naïve, and intellectually shallow? I don’t believe his response to the Hurricane made a bit of difference to these voters. The people who claimed that this was one of the
