    Y’all remember that song by The Police called “Message in a Bottle”, the closing refrain was sending out an SOS. I travel quite a bit and am often asked a recurring question, “if you could say anything to President Trump what would you say?”. That same question occurred again last week Friday evening in Hoffman Estates Illinois during the question and answer session of my presentation to the Illinois Family Institute. Now, one must be very aware of what you write or say when it comes to President Trump lest you find yourself being attacked, assailed, and denigrated by...

    It was on September 17, 1787 that our rule of law, the US Constitution was signed in Philadelphia. History tells us of an exchange that occurred outside of Independence Hall between Benjamin Franklin and a Philadelphia socialite, Mrs. Powell. Mrs. Powell inquired of Mr. Franklin, “well, what is it that we have, a monarchy or a republic”? Mr. Franklin replied, famously, “a Republic, if you can keep it”. That was the challenge of 230 years ago, and now we must ask ourselves, do we truly want to keep this Constitutional Republic. However, there is a greater question, how many people...

    Well, here we are in that last possible moment for healthcare reform under budget reconciliation. That simply means the GOP controlled Senate has until the end of this month, just a few days, to come to a consensus on a healthcare reform legislation that owns up to their promise. They had promised to repeal and replace Obamacare for, what, seven years or so? They had stated they just needed the House of Representatives…done. Then they decried, we need to have the US Senate…granted. Then they pleaded, please give us the White House…trifecta. And then Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell of...

    This past weekend I was honored to be in a most picturesque place with some great and hospitable folks ib Prescott (Yavapai County) Arizona. I was there to address the Republican Women of Prescott, the nation’s largest Republican women’s club, on their 75th anniversary. The scenery there was just breathtaking and there was just a sense of solemnness that we all need experience from time to time. How great a contrast it was from what was happening across the country in Charlottesville, Virginia. Let me begin by saying, I deplore any form of supremacist view — white, black, Hispanic, Islamic....

    I’ve kept my peace on this subject, but you can refer to my original comments on the issue of Colin Kaepernick from last year’s football season.But now I hear there’s a petition of folks who are planning to boycott the NFL if Colin Kaepernick doesn’t get picked up by a football team. This is typical of the left who only operates in the world of intimidation, coercion, and violence … threats. So now the progressive socialist left wants to coerce and intimidate a private sector business into accepting one of their chuckleheads. Here’s the bottom line: Colin Kaepernick utilized his...

    Republicans’ approval of Congress is at an all-time low for the year. It turns out skipping town after failing to follow through on a 7-year-old health care promise is not popular with voters.The climate makes Col. Allen West’s column today especially effective. “Who’s in charge?” he wondered, voicing the frustrations of so many Americans.“There is no justification” for being on recess right now, he said in a conversation with Townhall Wednesday. "At least that’s not how it works in the military." “When I think about how I was brought up in the military you don’t just pack up and go home...

    The movie “Apocalypse Now” came out in August 1979, it was Francis Ford Coppola’s film on the Vietnam War centered on the mission of Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) to assassinate a US Army Colonel gone rogue, played by Marlon Brando. I was beginning my freshman year of college at the University of Tennessee, and as a student enrolled in ROTC, I went to see the movie. Of course, it took me three viewings to really come to grips with the film and understand it. However, everyone remembers the memorable character, and lines, of Robert Duvall who played an eccentric Air...

    It continues to amaze me, perhaps not, how recalcitrant the media has been in not addressing the horrific global security situation that was bequeathed from the Obama administration to the Trump administration. The misguided vehemence in which the media has pursued a windmill called Russian intervention into our election is quite telling. Early into the Obama administration back in 2009 we were utterly inundated with the line of “we inherited this mess”, ok, it continued as an excuse until the final days. However, where are all those voices rambling on about the mess that Barack Obama left as he walked...

    It goes without saying that Democrats have had a number of problems with computer security over the past few years, whether it be the controversy that arose through Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, or the following hacks into the DNC. Most blamed Russia for the hack, and they quite well could be responsible, but while their eyes were on Russia, they forgot about any threats to their security from inside. According to the Daily Caller; Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly...

    I love two genres of music, classical and classic rock. One of my favorite classic rock bands is the group Styx and one of my favorite songs of theirs is “Grand Illusion”. However, in the case of what we have seen post the 2016 presidential election through the inauguration of President Donald Trump, it appears the progressive socialist left is operating under a grand delusion. In 2009, the progressive left embarked upon an ideological agenda evidencing a serious delusion and disconnection with America. Instead of focusing on two simple issues, economic growth and national security, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy...

    In some ten days, we will have the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump. There can be no doubt that the election of Mr. Trump enabled a philosophical stay of execution for America. In these past eight years, we have been heading down the failed road of progressive socialism, which the political, media, academic, and entertainment elites all favor – to the demise of the greater Nation. Hence we have seen such an apoplectic response emanating from these circles who fail to comprehend how the “forgotten men and women” of America rejected and repudiated that which they embrace in their...

    President Obama is on his way out, and he’s directed an investigation into Russian influence in our November 2016 election. Needless to say, Obama didn’t feel it necessary to investigate the Clinton Foundation and the uranium sales to the Russians which benefitted the Kremlin. The bottom line is that the Hillary Clinton loss in November had nothing to do with the Russians, other than her stupid reset button. The Clinton loss had everything to do with a failed Obama administration and a pathetic presidential candidate who had no message — and actually said she’d continue the failing policies of Obama....

    Former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., was spotted at Trump Tower on Monday, where he reportedly met with Vice President-elect Mike Pence as well as members of the incoming administration’s national security team. The retired lieutenant colonel also sat down with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who has been tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to be national security adviser, and K.T. McFarland, who will be deputy national security adviser, The Hill reported. “Nothing was offered. I mean, they know my reputation very well,” West told pool reporters in Trump Tower following the meeting.

    My time in the military and studying military history and operations has taught me that transitions are always a vulnerable period. It is vital to have a solid team that is looking not just at the time before them, but is strategically focused on the future. One of my favorite passages in the Bible comes from the Book of Joshua, my favorite biblical leader. As God told him, early on in Chapter One, “Moses my servant is dead.” In other words, Joshua was it. And the Lord commanded him three times to “be strong and courageous,” and God laid...

    If there is one thing I learned in the 2012 election cycle, it was about voter fraud. My conservative warrior associate, Katherine Engelbrecht, and her organization, True the Vote, took up the mantle against the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, Gertrude Walker, who admitted to sending “questionable” results to the Florida Secretary of State. It was somewhat disheartening that the Florida Secretary of State and Attorney General sat back, watched the news reports, and did nothing. With that background, I’d like to share a story written by Gregg Prentice: “Voter Fraud? If they’re not catching the easy stuff, what...

    I’ve had it with this crappy liberal progressive media. And here’s a warning, since you don’t want to report what’s actually happening in the world, there will be a consequence. Many across this great Nation know of your blatant and obvious collusion with the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign, like CNN’s Wolf Blitzer dancing and singing at the DNC convention. A solid contingent of folks are going to ensure you are not dancing and singing the evening of November 8th. As for Donald Trump and this audio tape from 11 years ago, “what difference at this point does...

    The debate Monday evening has to start addressing what has happened the last two weekends in America: terror attacks. The latest one came in Burlington, Washington where four American women and one man lost their lives. As we reported yesterday, 20-year-old Arcan Cetin, a Turkish national who and immigrated to the U.S., shot four women and one man at the Cascade Mall in Burlington Friday evening. He was not unknown to police as he had previously been arrested for assault and faced three domestic violence charges against his stepfather which were later dropped. He was also arrested for drunken driving...

    Something is happening in this presidential election cycle that has some folks totally up in arms. A white GOP presidential candidate is addressing the issues in the black community. And, of course, Donald J. Trump has kicked the hornet’s nest and is consistently castigated with the ultimate denigrating moniker of “racist.” Trump is finding out that there is a super-secret club handshake in the black community. And the only white people who have been provided that code are white liberal progressive socialists. What amazes me is that here we have someone challenging the failed progressive policies of the inner city...

    he leftist progressive media is doing everything it can to reshape the narrative when it comes to Donald Trump. I believe we clearly understand that regardless of what Trump says, the liberal progressive media is going to try and define his words to their advantage. However, the left just stepped into something that needs to be clarified — actually shoved up their “fourth point of contact.” It appears the left is taking umbrage with Trump referring to Hillary Clinton as a “bigot.” “The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community,” Trump declared. “The Democratic Party has taken the...
