So what, exactly, happened on New Year’s in Europe?

by Skip January 10, 2016

It COULDN’T be those millions of military aged Muslim men, could it?  After all, they MUST have as much respect for our Western mores, our culture(s), and our way of life, right?  Why ELSE would they have left their home countries, their families, their wives, and their children?  Andrew McCarthy, a respected security expert, over […]

Un-American? Obama’s Ties Of A Different Stripe

by Mike October 22, 2015

Many people, looking at the almost matching outfits of Obama and Biden during yesterday’s non-announcement, saw either too cute, or uncomfortably close coordination of outfits – something just a little, well, creepy. See Twitchy.com As a British import and world traveler, I saw something more interesting – the stripes on the ties went in opposite […]

What gay activists and their water-carriers get wrong almost every time is that where there is no monopoly on a product or service their attacks on conscientious objectors is not a battle for tolerance it is an exercise in intolerance. Embrace their worldview or be destroyed, personally, professionally, publicly. Bakers, photographers, florists, and now judges. The […]

I’ve made the point a time-or-two that the same sex marriage debate was never about marriage unless by marriage you mean it’s destruction as an institution.  Marriage is a leading cause of children and children are a leading cause of families, personal responsibility, and even a tendency toward more conservative principles.  That is why the […]

If you had not figured it out yet, the Government takeover of Student loans was both a sop and to control and protect the redistribution of billions nationally and annually.   To enrich an army of left-wing intellectual moon-bats, legitimize dopey progressive ideas with federal grants, and to recycle taxpayer backed dollars through the white tower […]

Heard this line last night that speaks to this “I’m a Duck Dynasty values family forced to live in a Molly Cyrus World“; what used to be good and valued is denigrated and replaced.  What was good is now bad, what was bad is now celebrated.  Holding onto traditional values used to be a virtue […]

A snippet from Selwyn Duke – American Thinker… rebutting the notion that government should stay out of ‘social issues.’ As I predicted years ago and wrote about here, there now is a movement afoot — one that has received “unbiased” mainstream-media news coverage — to legitimize pedophilia.
