“If you were in the White House that day … every day since has been September twelfth. And your great fear is that it may be September tenth.” ~ National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice
Sixteen long years have passed, since the clear blue sky above New York City exploded in a fiery inferno, toxic smoke and the stench of burning flesh and death on September 11, 2001, and for many, the memories of the murder of nearly three thousand Americans, friends and relatives and fellow countrymen, remains as fresh as this morning’s dew. Those of us, who remember all too well, have the solemn obligation and duty to ensure America’s future generations do not soon forget, that Islamic jihadists struck the single deadliest attack on U.S. soil by any foe since the War of 1812.
Two thousand nine-hundred and seventy-seven [CNN Library] Americans never could have imagined the horror they would soon face the morning of 9/11, as they headed to work at the Twin Towers. Their thoughts were filled with work, schedules, and perhaps returning home to play softball with their children or having dinner with a fiancee, or a husband or wife. Continue reading →
“With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.” ~ Jeri Taylor, Star Trek script
Americans witnessed more violence, yet again, on August 12th 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a Unite the Right free speech rally, that also hoped to stop the removal of Confederate General Robert E Lee’s statue from Emancipation Park. While an unknown number of counter-protesters who truly see Confederate monuments as painful reminders, of a time of bondage in America’s past, were there, many were simply good and decent conservatives, who understand that America cannot allow Her history to be re-written and eradicated.
Unfortunately, the roots of violence in Charlottesville, that ended Heather Heyer’s life, is the same sort of violence America witnessed in the 1960s and more recently in Ferguson, Baltimore, Dallas and Baton Rouge and now dozens of other cities across America, but its cause goes far deeper than a few Confederate monuments. Removing the monuments will solve nothing. Continue reading →
America is left only the hardest of choices to deal with a nuclear armed and belligerent North Korea, that recently fired another intercontinental ballistic missile on July 28th (10:45 pm EST) from Jagang province, the latest in a score of tests over the past year, with an approximate range of 6000 miles. America cannot tolerate an ever expanding and improving nuclear arsenal, under Kim Jong Un, an irrational and unstable dictator, who murdered his uncle in December 2013 and his half-brother in February of this year: and, while a bloody conventional war isn’t sought by America and South Korea, America cannot afford to do nothing and risk a massive loss of life in a future nuclear conflagration. Continue reading →
The Founding Fathers believed that government’s role in religion should be limited. We cannot discount that the First Amendment begins “Congress shall make no law” either establishing a state religion or prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Rather than articulate an affirmative responsibility for government to protect religion, the Founding Fathers felt it was enough to keep the government out. If nothing else, the language of the First Amendment makes it clear the goal was to restrain government when it came to religion. There is no suggestion the Founders felt the establishment clause and the free exercise clause were in any way competing. Otherwise, why would the Founders include the two clauses together? The point was to keep government out of both realms. Both clauses were needed because it was not sufficient to restrain government from establishing a state religion; government also had to be restrained from any attempt to interfere with religious practices and beliefs. The negative language of the First Amendment does not prohibit Congress from passing a law that promotes religion, provided the judgement does not promote one religion over others. Continue reading →
America can no longer afford to hurl ineffective economic sanctions at North Korea, that are too often violated by nations like China, while North Korea and its malevolent dictator, Kim Jong Un, prepare to let nuclear armed missiles fly at their leisure. The United States government and President Donald Trump must give some hard, serious and real consideration on striking at the heart of Pyongyang North Korea, Kim Jong Un’s regime and all North Korean missile launch sites and nuclear facilities, since placing our country’s fate in the hands of a murderous and unstable dictator, who has murdered senior officials and family members on a whim, and a regime capable of reckless behavior would be beyond egregious and a monumental mistake. Continue reading →
Constitutional conservative minded Americans must stop the recently accelerated movement to remove Confederate Monuments, because it is a tool used by the racists of the regressive Democratic Communist Party and the Black Caucus to gain more power and destroy our Constitutional Republic. Their campaign uses “white supremacy” as an excuse to attack the Western and Judeo-Christian principles that built America; and in their zeal to create a sanitized fantasy world, where nothing bad ever happened in America’s history, they are destroying both American and Black history and eliminating anyone, and anything, that they deem to be “racist”, from the public square and the annals of history.
States like Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee already have laws protecting their historical monuments, while the monuments along Richmond’s Monument Avenue rest in a protected historical park. Alabama recently extended such protection to its monuments on May 24th 2017 through the Alabama Monument Preservation Act. Continue reading →
Monuments honoring heroes of the Confederate States of America, American heroes in fact, are being removed from the public square, due to a successful presentation of oversimplified arguments and lies by the same progressive Leftist Democratic apparatus that seeks to fundamentally transform America. These assaults on the Southern heritage by politically correct propagandists and arrogant activist ideologues are assaults on our American culture and heritage, or “AmeriKKKa” as the Left calls America; and, it is nothing short of a cultural cleansing campaign, a purging of the truth and history and a national disgrace.

In 2015, the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP called for the destruction of the Stone Mountain Confederate Monument, that honors Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson. They wanted the nearly 2000 square feet and 12 feet deep carving “sandblasted away”.
In February, the city council of Charlottesville, VA sought to remove Robert E. Lee’s likeness from its 100 year resting place. They have been temporarily blocked by a lawsuit filed by the Monument Fund and 29 other plaintiffs.
Soon protests arose in Charlottesville and NAACP President Rick Turner told the crowds: “I think a decision must be made to remove the statue by any means necessary.” Continue reading →
“Any alleged ‘right’ of one man which necessitates the violation of the rights of another is not and cannot be a right.” – Ayn Rand
Americans and our society, by and large progressives of both parties and independents, have become a wilting, withering mass of weak, needy cry-babies, who have departed far and away from the strength of back, intellect and character of America’s Founders, who created a system that none other has ever equaled. Rather than follow along the path that made America a strong, economically thriving and prosperous nation, many Americans, especially Millenials,pursue petty and paltry pleasures, as would a sloth and a glutton, and claim their slightest whim to be a “right”.
Some things like food, shelter, clothing, water and healthcare are critical to our life, however, they are not “rights”. Even if they were made rights, this would set in motion a confiscatory requirement to satisfy that right at the expense of others, much as America currently chafes against our current welfare system… Continue reading →
I was a “Never Trump” guy for a matter of only days, during the Republican primary for many good reasons, that remain true and valid today. But DAMN. Come on people. All of you are out there proclaiming your Conservative and Christian principles and your love for America, but you are sitting quietly by, even now, and watching Her be destroyed before your very eyes. Conservative principles are great. I’m every bit as conservative as any of you, probably more so, however, if you really need this explained to you, here goes.
98% of all news reports on Trump over the past three months, according to a recent Harvard study, have been negative.
America is at a dangerous crossroads, and all normal Americans, who love God, their families and their unalienable rights and Liberty, are necessarily going to have to eventually fight and decisively defeat the American totalitarian Left, that seeks our silence, obeyance and submission to their Marxist vision by any means necessary. The Left’s recently renewed ready use of violence to achieve their goals and their calls for the violent overthrow of our republic, as they riot and throw bricks, glass bottles containing M-80s and Molotov cocktails and attempt to burn our cities, leaves little choice. Either our government stops them, or it will fall to millions of armed American patriots defending their homes, their families and their lives, because the Leftist ideology only ensures that freedom is replaced with tyranny. Continue reading →
America is made less safe through Leftist immigration policy, as evidenced over the last eight years. Illegal aliens rob, rape and murder millions of Americans each year, because Leftist activist judges have said these illegals have “a right” to simply appear in our country, and Leftist mayors of U.S. cities refuse to enforce sound and logical U.S. immigration law already in existence, creating “sanctuary cities”. Their combined anti-American actions are directly responsible for so much misery, loss and heartache for American citizens they have sworn an oath to protect, and they have placed our U.S. national sovereignty in jeopardy.
Too many Americans blindly accept the fallacies and outright lies from the Left, that illegal aliens have “a right” to self-immigrate and a “birthright” to U.S. citizenship for any of their children born in America. Continue reading →
Making the only moral choice and protecting the United States vital interests, President Donald Trump ordered the first direct U.S. attack on Syria in six years, in response to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of a sarin gas nerve-agent on his own people and the images of little children dying and foaming at the mouth, on April 6th 2017. While President Trump seemed to act solely out of humanitarian concern, his decision sent a clear message around the world and to all America’s enemies, that the United States is back, strong as it ever once was, and willing to act with its military might should it prove necessary.
On Tuesday, April 4th, U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies tracked Syrian SU-22 jets leaving Al Shayrat Airbase, for Idlib Province, where one jet dropped a sarin bomb in the middle of Kahn Sheikhoun. Eighty-seven people were killed, including 26 children, and 546 more were deathly sick and injured. Continue reading →
Setting a dangerous precedent for the future of America, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other Leftist propaganda machines and an army of the Obama administration’s holdovers, nothing less than saboteurs, have waged a war of innuendo and speculation and felony leaks for months in an attempt to destroy President Donald Trump’s administration and the government American voters demanded. They have turned their backs on the Constitution and the American people, their oath to protect and defend both, and they have sought to undermine our democratic process and the Republic of the United States of America. Continue reading →
Lady Liberty had a single tear trickle down Her cheek on January 27th as Her breasts heaved with happiness and relief that a U.S. President, Donald Trump, was finally implementing a sound, logical and sane common-sense approach to who receives visas and permission to enter the United States. However, Lady Liberty cried profusely, upon learning that President Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations was only temporary. Continue reading →
“Destroyers are they who lay snares for many, and call it the state …“ ~ Nietzsche
Robert LaVoy Finicum
Americans should pause and take some time to recall and celebrate the life of Robert LaVoy Finicum, an American patriot, who loved his family, God and country. He placed his life on the line in defense of all Americans’ right to ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’, joining the ranks of thousands of other ranchers who have been fighting the overreaches of the federal government and the tyranny of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for the past forty years. Robert LaVoy Finicum died on January 26th, 2016, one day before his 55th birthday, defending the U.S. Constitution and this America he loved so well. Continue reading →
One more day should not pass before the United States Congress votes to immediately halt all funding to the United Nations and end our membership in the U.N., largely comprised of our enemies, which falsely presents itself as an organization dedicated to worldwide freedom, liberty and “social justice” for all. Not only does the U.N. support terrorism, it is anti-American and anti-Israeli, and through U.N. schemes, like Agenda 2030 and “sustainable development”, the U.N. promotes tyranny and the subversion of any mechanism for freedom, such as our U.S. Constitution, thus promoting the suppression of the unalienable rights of all mankind.
The U.N. claims that it seeks to create a peaceful world and protect human rights, and yet, many of the world’s most troublesome and violent nations and human rights violators — Russia, China, Indonesia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Cuba — sit on the U.N. Human Rights Council. One should recall that the United States was removed from the U.N. Human Rights High Commission in 2001, in retaliation for the U.S.’s defense of Israel, an all time high point for U.N. hostility towards the U.S. Continue reading →
Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th, 2017, in large part because he so easily and defiantly laughed in the face of the D.C. establishment types, who thought he was a joke, and he turned the old political order on its head. Trump rejected soul-draining and mind-numbing identity politics and double standards in the law, that centered on whether one was a Republican or Democrat. He addressed the real issues of the day from immigration and “refugee” policies to Obamacare and national security, and he bluntly outlined how our world is filled with enemies, adversaries and competitors as well as friends. He opened a pathway for Americans to forcefully oppose the long-entrenched D.C. establishment, and the hyphen-free Americans took it, as they chose to make America work for all Americans, not just those in power. Continue reading →
“Once I built a tower to the sun. Brick and rivet and lime …
Now it’s done. Brother can You spare a dime?”
Donald Trump is telling America the truth about our economy, and he has offered wise and courageous solutions that will in fact set our economy afire with prosperity for all, despite assertions of the naysayers of the Democratic Progressive Party. He doesn’t have all the answers, but he knows enough to understand that policies that create a Democratic base of takers must be ended if all America is going to thrive and prosper once more. He will throw out the policies Hillary and her progressives seek to extend and expand, that have betrayed American workers, who are mucking through the worse economic “recovery” of the past 80 years, and America First will replace globalism as our guiding light.
The Obama administration wants us to believe inflation is at zero, after they removed everything that matters from the inflation index, but one’s grocery, electric and healthcare bills, along with college tuition, proves that inflation is raging. Obama’s policies have pushed the GDP down to barely above zero, while they have very nearly destroyed all the high-paying skilled jobs for the middle class and college grads. And in the meantime, over 90 million working age Americans are on welfare and foodstamps, and the workforce participation rate is under 63%. Continue reading →
“This isn’t just the fight of my life, it’s the fight of our lives — together — to save our country … Together we will make America strong again.” ~ Donald Trump in Charlotte, NC; August 18, 2016.
The future of America is at stake, and Donald Trump is the only clear choice when compared to Hillary Clinton, who will continue Obama’s agenda and introduce new and worse policies that will certainly exacerbate this current moment of crisis in America. Whatever flaws are associated with Trump, they pale in comparison to the machinations and malevolence behind the transformation Hillary s designing for America.
Donald Trump loves America, Her heritage and traditions. And Hillary Clinton obviously hates America and the U.S. Constitution and America’s founding principles.
Early this month, a fiercely disturbing and stomach-turning speech Hillary delivered to Brazilian bankers from Banco Itau was leaked, in which Hillary confesses that she “dreams” of a “hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders“, essentially ending U.S. sovereignty and our existence as an independent nation. She envisions a superstate rising from a merger of North, Central and South America. Continue reading →
A cold, calculating and deliberate international criminal, treason is her trade and “Traitor” is her name, a woman who has sabotaged the laws and principles of the United States of America that she swore to uphold. Some call her the “Butcher of Libya“. Whether she is undermining America’s national security through self-enriching corrupt uranium deals with Russia, making state secrets available to our enemies or arming Al Qaeda and other enemies of the United States, the anti-American radicals know her as Hillary Clinton.
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or adhering to their enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” – Article III Section 3 U.S. Constitution Continue reading →
” … a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor. The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. Even when fools walk along the way, they lack wisdom and show everyone that they are fools.” ~ Ecclesiastes 10:1-3
Hillary Clinton does not inspire confidence in most Americans, when she speaks of combating terrorism, the likes of which the American people recently witnessed over the past few weeks in Minnesota, New Jersey and New York, that left dozens of people seriously wounded. Her policies will be a continuation of the same weak, ineffectual, ineffective, cowardly, idiotic and treasonous policies of Obama and his band of Leftist fools, who have created this environment that is amenable to terrorism. And despite her assurances that she has a “comprehensive plan” to combat terrorism, she offers only a mirage and every thing else other than a genuine and concerted effort to defeat the Islamic jihadi terrorists that now freely roam the streets of America. Continue reading →
Hillary Clinton is not a “liberal” or a “progressive” if one wants to be accurate. She’s a radical red Commie rat with a miserable reputation of uttering flagrant and prodigious lies, who advocates class warfare, state ownership of all property and an egalitarian Utopia operated by an oligarchy, despite all her recent attempts to present herself as a centrist.
Hillary currently has the full support of the Communist Party USA, which is not surprising. She hasn’t changed her support of full blown Marxism and collapsing the capitalist system, since Bill Clinton operative Larry Nichols saw her in Arkansas, during the 1970s, wearing a medallion that read, “Proud member of the American Communist Party“. She’s as liberal as Elizabeth Warren and barely more moderate than Bernie Sanders, who is a self-avowed socialist. Continue reading →
Never has America witnessed a more shameful event than on September 11th, 2012, when the Obama administration refused to go immediately to the assistance of the U.S. Consulate and the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya, as besieged Americans fought a full pitch battle against a well-planned terrorist attack by Ansar al-Sharia and the Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman. Beyond a shadow of doubt, several U.S. military resources were available, despite all administration claims to the contrary, and could have arrived in time to have prevented the deaths of Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, if not Sean Smith and Ambassador Chris Stevens. However, according to numerous well respected sources of unquestionable integrity, various military units received a “stand down” order.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had direct authority over the Libyan facilities. So what happened? Continue reading →
Donald Trump may not be the strong constitutionalist that many conservatives saw in Ted Cruz. Still, we can acknowledge Trump’s abundant flaws, his Big Government Leftist leanings, just as I have done in several columns, and vote for him with a clear conscience, since a corrupt society gave us both Trump and Hillary Clinton. Save the political infighting over “true conservative values” for after the election. We are not responsible for Trump’s shortcomings; but, we can certainly take advantage of his known strengths, as we unify against Hillary Clinton, who is an evil ideologue hellbent on the abolition of individual and religious liberties, the most corrupt elitist to ever seek the presidency. Continue reading →
Any American who truly loves this country will not give one good damn about being called “racist” by the party of hypocrisy, the Progressive Democrat Party, for standing for Donald Trump’s policies to control our borders, halt illegal immigration, and safeguard U.S. sovereignty and national security. We reject the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party that uses little children to promote lies concerning illegal aliens and separating families. We reject the hypocrisy of the Far Left movement that screams “Baby Killer” at our Veterans any other time that they aren’t carting out loser generals, such as General John Allen, and Gold Star parents, like Khizr and Ghazala Khan, who promote Sharia law in America and unrestrained Muslim immigration. And if America does not get behind Donald Trump’s immigration policies to halt the Progressive Democrats’ insanity, America, as we have known Her, will cease to exist. Continue reading →
America – the Promised Land of Liberty – must reject the lies, the false narratives, presented to Her by Obama and the black nationalist fascists and nihilists of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and the New Black Panthers, who seek to undermine the rule of law and our republic. They blur the line between good and evil in a vile and reprehensible manner, they sacrifice justice for politics, and they justify the “revenge” murders of police officers, in their ignorant message of a divided America, “Black” America vs “White” America. Continue reading →
The rule of law died on July 5th and the tide turned against freedom in America, after FBI Director James Comey delivered the news that Hillary Clinton, a crooked, corrupt and accomplished liar, would not face charges for her criminal mishandling of top secret information. This day will be marked in infamy in the annals of American history as the day that Comey, Loretta Lynch and Obama, who all swore oaths to uphold justice, worked to annihilate justice and limit and destroy rights. Their actions to this point and after the fact remove all doubt that one standard of law does in fact exist for the political aristocracy and another standard of law applies to the average, common U.S. citizen, as this administration pushes America down the dark path of tyranny. Continue reading →
Life has intrinsic value, but pro-abortionists of the Far Left and the Democratic Party, who have already received their unalienable God-given right to life, have ignored the rights of the unborn to live since the 1973 Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision. They have attempted to desensitize American society to the murders of nearly 70 million babies, horrifically and painfully killed by being ripped apart, suctioned, chemically burned and decapitated, and far too often their agenda has been advanced by Supreme Court Justices, who have interjected their own political bias into a case rather than objectively interpret the law, just as America witnessed once more on June 27th, 2016. Continue reading →
President Obama and U.S. Senators such as Chris Murphy (D-CT) are intellectually challenged in ascertaining the limits of their authority, when in the face of the worst act of domestic terrorism in decades, on June 12th in Orlando, FL, they divert time and resources from the real threat of Islam inspired terrorism to advocate, filibuster and place legislation for a vote designed to infringe upon, limit and impede the “unalienable” right to “keep and bear arms” under the Second Amendment. And in the process, they have placed the 4th, 5th and 6th Amendments on the chopping block too. Continue reading →
The British people seem ready to leave the European Union through an historic June 23rd referendum, because they are tired of the high-handed tyrannical regulations, clauses and counter clauses, emanating from the EU Council on even the simplest aspects of their everyday lives. They have determined that leaving the EU will be the best step towards reclaiming their nation’s sovereignty and democratic rule in all matters of immigration and border control, their economy, free trade and national security, and they are proudly waving the Union Jack, as they tell their would be masters in Brussels to “go to hell”, declaring their independence.
