TS42000B-2T

Prepping… while it has received a bashing due to ill-conceived “reality” shows and negative news events is absolutely sane, responsible and a priority. Preparing isn’t just about some mythical zombie apocalypse. It’s about that next tornado, winter storm, flood, or terrorist event.

To TEA Party Organization Leaders: Unite for Liberty

Eagle- America Deserves Better

  Leaders of TEA Party Organizations, I have seen the different groups in the TEA Party family all working independently, or so it seems to me, on projects that are all very important.  I know that one of the draws of the TEA Party is independence but the time has come that all of you must unite to fight the common ...

Free Traders: “Blame America First!”

It appears that Ron Paul supporters are not the only ones who profess Blame America First views. It seems that free traders also advocate such views. But while paulbots attack America’s entire foreign and defense policy, free traders “only” object to any criticism of America’s trade rivals and to any attempt to protect America’s industrial base from unfair competition (dumping). ...

In 2010, after 234 years, the United States Supreme Court finally recognized the Constitution’s Second Amendment as the law intended for citizens to protect themselves.  Despite the high court ruling, if the Left gets it’s way, and Progressives are determined, not only will Americans lose their rights to keep and bear arms, left-wing leaders and anti-gun lobbyist will have the ...

The Unspoken Ghosts of Irish-Americans

stpatrickclover2

March 17th is the feast of St. Patrick, the most important holiday of the year for Irish Americans. There were worse things in Early America than being a black slave. It’s probably surprising to learn that being an Irish slave was one of them. Early Irish settlers also filled the same service roles in American society, then, as claimed by illegal ...

Don’t Make Me Use My Rape Whistle!

      It’s  dangerous for vulnerable women to carry guns, especially if there are rapists in the vicinity!  Frightened women might prevent rapes from happening by shooting rapists, and then where will society be! Women only need rape whistles to fight off rapists! The above statement is not hyperbole, it’s the ludicrous thinking of the Left, who claim to ...

Is Rep. Markwayne Mullin Now John Boehner’s Spokesman?

Eagle- America Deserves Better

I’ve about decided that reading three newspapers a day, plus Newsmax.com may be bad for my emotional health. Normally the day starts with the Washington Examiner, a fine tabloid with a conservative editorial page. I like the Examiner even though the paper is evidently unaware the county were I live — Prince William — exists, as the paper’s Northern Virginia ...

This is an open letter to a new generation of founding fathers who I hope will stand up and “pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to the cause of a restored Republic of the United States of America.  I am asking for leaders to lead; people with wealth, name recognition, and the trust of We the People ...

The lies of free trade proponents

In his SOTU speech, Barack Obama announced that his Administration is (unconstitutionally and thus illegally) negotiating trade agreements with the EU and countries of the Pacific Rim. Free trade proponents – including Iain Murray of the pseudoconservative American Spectator – applauded him, as they are ideologically aligned with him. In defense of their (and his) free trade agenda, they have ...
