What Hillary Needs to Win on Monday Night

On Monday night, Sept 26, I expect a full frontal assault, ambush if necessary, on Donald Trump by the interrogators on behalf of their fraternity, the American media. Hillary can't go one-on-one with Trump, no matter how softball her questions are, but she has surrogates who stand to lose as much as she does and ... Read More

New Major Compromise: Hill And The DNC Still Haven’t Learned Digital Security

The actual web address is hillaryclinton.com/calls so yes, the open call bank really belongs to Hillary; and no, Hillary and the DNC have not learned anything from the various recent digital indiscretions and hacks... unsecured bathroom email servers notwithstanding. Hillary is demonstrating that she cares nothing about contact data security for the voters in 20 ... Read More

America not listening to the Kaepernickis – pt 1 : a dialogue is not started by a mortal insult

Imagine that you and I are in a public place. We're not especially friends, but you are trying like mad to get my attention. You have something very important you need to discuss with me. I've noticed you but I'm rather interested in playing a video game on my phone. Exasperated and feeling you are ... Read More

Not Forgotten #AngelFamilies #NoAmnesty #RemembranceProject

When Donald Trump spoke up for victims of illegal aliens a year ago, I thought that it was fantastic and wondered as the campaign went on would he forget them. Not only has he not forgotten them he made them a promise, that they could come out of the shadows. You see it doesn't work ... Read More

It Seems Black Voters are Hiding From Fox News Pollsters In the Same Places White Voters Are

In plain sight As Donald Trump gave a rousing speech to black churchgoers in Detroit, where blacks are known to sit on their hands if they don't like a candidate, a timed Fox News Poll reported only 1% of polled African-Americans favor Donald Trump. What gives? Well, in part, we can guess that Fox, both ... Read More

The Trump Do-it-Yourself Home Voter Fraud Kit

Since 1932 there has not been a national presidential election that the Democrat Party has not tried to steal. In 1952, they were simply swamped, a puffed-up liberal versus a national hero. In 1968 and 1980, events beyond their control, but their fault, (the Vietnam War and the National Embarrassment) were simply too huge to ... Read More

Ought Donald Trump Focus on Getting the Lower-Propensity Voters to the Polls?

It Both Increases Voter Turnout and Transforms the GOP. Ought Donald Trump focus on getting the “lower propensity” voters to the polls. To ask the question answers it. Of course he should. Will he? I hope Donald Trump already has thought of all that follows. He’s a billionaire. He’s very smart. He hires smart people ... Read More

Of Nuclear Wars, Founding Charters, Guns and ‘What Ifs’

Author's note: I am a nobody. I never amounted to a bean, let alone a hill of them. About a decade ago as I began to age perceptibly, I discovered the Internet. Not "discover" in the sense that Albert the Magnificent discovered it, but I noticed it was there and had utility for my purpose, ... Read More

In February 2015 he was forced to resign amid influence peddling allegations and a federal criminal probe investigating both Kitzhaber and his fiancée, Cylvia Hayes.

America Needs Its Sing-Along Song Back

(With thanks to our friend, EPU, for suggesting this title in a 2012 article.) "God Bless America" was written by Irving Berlin in 1918, and revived in 1938 with war looming, and made famous by Kate Smith, whose 1938 radio rendition was a national hit. (See if you can spot Ronald Reagan. If you're over ... Read More

Is This What Passes For Intelligence?

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's so much worse than you thought. There is an entity known as the Central INTELLIGENCE Agency, and of late, several of it's Directors have indicated by their comments and activities that our vetting process for CIA directors needs some serious study. You will recall that former Director Leon Panetta once famously ... Read More

Famous Common People I Have Known, Mick Hensley

(I published this at RedState in 2010, but since they have all gone all-in for Hillary, and we haven't been friends for years, I thought it best to bring this piece over from there for fear they'd trash it. It was always one of my most popular essays.) I was born in a small town ... Read More

Will the Nehlen-Ryan Primary in Wisconsin be a Referendum on Donald Trump?

It would not be an understatement to say that Paul Ryan is not well-liked among Republican conservatives. Even #NeverTrumpsters are having existential pangs wanting so badly to see both Ryan and Trump defeated this Tuesday. Only that is not likely to happen for any kind of Nehlen victory or near-victory will be seen as a ... Read More

Elitism; Where Libertarians, the Left, and Now Too Many Conservatives Share the Same Dance

And how they are joined is neither political nor philosophical. It is entirely psychological. This is important to understand, because Karl Marx’s original followers were all academicians. It would be at least two generations before they would begin spawning little bratlings (David Horowitz can explain this better than I can) who would grow up to ... Read More
