Wednesday night’s CNBC GOP debate was touted as economic-centric. It ended up being more about the moderators baiting the candidates with ridiculous and biased questions, such as John Harwood’s query to Mick Huckabee as to whether Donald Trump has the “moral authority” to lead the nation. But there needs to be some serious discussion of economics injected into the primaries beyond ...

Al Gore Has Finally Made A Statement I Agree With, Sort Of


I hate to admit it, but Al Gore has finally made a statement that seems reasonable, at least it has some reasonableness based on what we know of ole Al.  He recently stated that Global Warming and CO2 are making people dumber.  In Al Gore’s case I can see a tie-in between intelligence and the lie of warming/change:  The closer ...

Once Upon A Time In America…

Eagle-I willl not sit Eagle

Once upon a time in America… We called it going without healthcare. Now we call it Obamacare. We called them Anti-American liars. Now we call them Democrats. We called them Nazis. Now we call them U.N. delegates. We called them Josef Mengele camps. Now we call them Planned Parenthood clinics. We called them Democrats. Now we call them establishment Republicans. ...

Push Back… Simply, PUSH BACK!


Let me start with a disclaimer for those who can’t figure it out on their own. Violence is NEVER the way. With that said, protecting yourself physically from people who are trying to do you physical harm is not violence, it’s called self-defense. This week, as I do every week to get ready for 3 hours of radio per day, ...

Marco Rubio’s Defense of Senate Absence Indicative of Broader Political Cultural Failings

Marco Rubio’s winsome defense of his abysmal voting record- the worst in the Senate this year- is exactly the problem with American politics. Rubio, who recently announced that he will not be seeking re-election in the Senate, has, of course, talked himself in circles explaining why his lackluster performance is not his fault- he’s running for president, the strict procedural ...

Remembering Hillary Clinton


In the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Committee testimony, it is prudent – especially with a generation of voters having no direct memories of Bill Clinton’s presidency – to recall Mrs. Clinton’s time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Truth be told, when her “public service” is put into context, one has to wonder how anyone could support her for the highest ...

Do We Really Want to Model the U.S. After Denmark?


At the Democrat presidential debate two weeks ago, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said we “should look to countries like Denmark…and learn from what they have accomplished for their working people.” The good senator should either rephrase his statement, or look more closely at the data. Democratic-socialism may work in some places in Europe, but was never intended, nor can it ...

A Tale of Two Rhetorical Strategies at the Benghazi Committee Hearing

Once upon a time, in a place now known as “the birthplace of democracy,” debate between men whose primary interest was in using discourse to expand their knowledge not demonstrate their superior intellect revolved around rhetoric. There was an inherent understanding that the way an argument was constructed was equally important to the merits of an argument. Though this recognition ...

The Anthropomorphization of America


Much like justice, American politics are meant to be blind. Just as the judiciary is built on a system that is blind all but the facts of a case and considers a defendant to have numerous rights, including the presumption of innocence, so the Constitution is dead to everything but the equal rights of the people. Both the legal code ...

Liberalism Is The Politics Of Wishful, Squishy Thinking

Eagle Trusting Government

All political groups must define their raison d’etre, so liberals selected the best sounding, easiest thing to say: “we care” (this term can also be manipulated to be “I feel your pain” which was Clinton’s gig, or “yes we can” which was Obama’s likening to Hillary’s “it takes a village”, all of which are the Dems’ way of stating that ...
