Meet The Press – US Senator Diane Feinstein goes extra-Constitutional on Prez duties

by Skip January 15, 2017

“…he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed“ As always, I try to struggle to watch the Sunday talking head shows as there are sometimes some decent nuggets to be heard (remember, most of the people on here are Progressives and Liberals – I listen to see how they actually think).  In one […]

This would give him 310 Electoral votes to Clinton’s 219. Lots of details to drill down into, but I might not have time today. Update. Republican keep […]

Thumbnail image for What Would You Do as President?

We start by asking former congressional candidate Jim Lawrence what he’d first do if he were president, which leads to getting congress to embrace reform, problems with fraud and EB-5 and HB-1 visas, the rigged game in general, and a lot more. (Get the full podcast here.) Here’s a 36 second clip from the segment […]

by Steve MacDonald March 11, 2016
Thumbnail image for National Review Endorses Ted Cruz for President

National Review has endorsed Ted Cruz for President. Here is a snippet of their endorsement remarks. You can read the entire endorsement here. Conservatism should not be merely combative; but especially in our political culture, it must be willing to be controversial. Too many Republicans shrink from this implication of our creed. Not Cruz. And […]

Angelo Codevilla called it back in 2010 when he said there is a large unrepresented portion of the electorate and for good or bad they will demand to be heard- in 2016, by the looks of it. We also talk about the dangers of following Obama’s imperial presidency, with a quick foray in to the […]

Faux Filer – Ben Carson

by Tom November 20, 2015

Ben Carson lost me a long time ago, when he made this blunder of a statement in 2013 on the Glenn Beck program.  Today, he’s doubling down. Essentially, he used his lack of “political experience” to explain why he thought people in urban/populated areas should be prohibited from having semi-automatic weapons – but not people in […]

Notable Quote – Mark Tapscot

by Skip July 15, 2014

On separation of powers (emphasis mine): Ultimate test of checks and balances The credibility of Congress and the courts thus now depends upon their successfully exposing the truth about the IRS scandal and punishing those responsible. If they fail, the executive branch will be effectively liberated from constitutional restraint. Thus, the IRS scandal has now become the […]

If We’d Seen THIS Guy on the Campaign Trail,
He’d Be PRESIDENT Today!

by Mike March 7, 2014

Hugely disappointing that we didn’t see THIS version of Rick Perry on the campaign trail in 2012, because he’d be president Perry today. I was at CPAC 2012, where the Texan delegates greeted him like a rock star – watch this video, and see if you disagree. The real problem in 2012 was that Perry […]

Barack Obams vs Nelson Mandala

by Skip December 6, 2013

I was out with TMEW doing errands this afternoon and was listening to Rush as he started his show – and he started to talk about Nelson Mandala and his reaction to his imprisonment in South Africa for 27 years.  He was just SO in awe of a profundity from Mandala that he kept marveling […]

…The further the fall. And, “used to walk on water?”  Maybe in your office.  No.  He never could ‘walk on water.’  He never accomplished anything.  In fact he manged to diminish the accomplishment of getting elected president.  To diminish the office, and nation along with it.

Big Money Equals Access To Obama

by Steve MacDonald February 25, 2013

It’s the Clinton Coffees and the Lincoln Bedroom writ large but with a bit more daylight.  (Who says history doth not repeat?) OFA, Organizing For A**H***s,  is stating right up front that you can buy access to the President.  Just give them a big bucket of cash and they can get you in touch with the people who run […]

Political Elites say, “Protect us and our families”, but Not the “Common Folk”

by Don January 11, 2013

What do American Presidents and Vice-Presidents, their wives and children, foreign Heads of State, many Governors, big city Mayors, large Company CEOs, prominent directors, actors, singers, and other entertainers, and the children of many wealthy people in Washington, DC, and other wealthy “elites” have in common? They carry guns or have armed guards to keep […]

Egypt’s New Boss Same as the Old Boss…with a Side of Arab Winter?

by Steve MacDonald November 25, 2012

On Thanksgiving the Muslim Brotherhoods Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi (Morsy) declared himself immune to judicial oversight (See also King, Dictator, Tyrant).  In the name of protecting the revolution no judge may overturn, edit, retract, modify, overrule, or otherwise act in any manner to alter any edict the new King of Egypt utters…until the (cough cough) […]

Is Obama Even Doing His Job?

by Steve MacDonald July 29, 2012

From Michael Patrick Leahy at The Golfer in Chief has passed 100 rounds, and in one week managed 21 campaign events.  He has attended 163 fundraisers in his re-election campaign, according to Lehay, and then some.  So he’s busy.  Too busy to do his job? Consider this evidence: He’s not received an economic briefing […]

So, who IS Obama supposed to be? President? Daddy? Sugar Daddy? Husband? I’m SO confused!

by Skip June 22, 2012

I’m on the email list for “Obama for something” so when I received my very own personalized email (Hey, they know me as  “Friend”) talking about Father’s Day from Caroline Kennedy, I just had to take notice: Friend — I grew up in the White House. I remember as a small child visiting my father […]

Would a President Romney appoint conservative or libertarian Supreme Court justices?

by Tim Condon April 24, 2012

I have my doubts. Romney is not a conservative, and has no core conservative convictions so far as anyone can see…. So herewith, an exchange on the subject between me and a worried libertarian friend:
