  • Why is Bernie Sanders so down on Henry Kissinger?

    One of the many topics of debate that came up during Thursday night’s debate between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont was Dr. Henry Kissinger, one of Clinton’s predecessors. Clinton has expressed admiration for Kissinger in the past, particularly of his opening to China. Ms. Clinton expressed the view that one should listen to a variety of opinions, including that of the 92 year old former Nixon era cabinet officer.

    There was a man in the Old Testament whose name was Jonah. God told him to do something, but he run away and thought he could hide from the presence of God. Then God commanded a big fish to swallow him. Miraculously, he survived in the belly of the fish for three days. During these three days he did three things: He realized he was wrong.He repented for his disobedience to God.He believed that God can still help him and prayed to God with faith. The Scripture says “And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry...

    A good piece at Reason.com called "Rand Paul Is Out—But Libertarianism Is Finally Mainstream": "Rand Paul beat them all after being excluded from the Fox Business debate just a few weeks earlier. I’m going to call that a comeback—one small step for mankind, another bigger step for the future of liberty." "Why? Because Rand has seeded another generation of liberty-minded young people, much like his father did in 2008 and 2012. When I was a kid, there was no broad social movement for liberty like we see today. Rand juiced the build-out of this community simply by being on the...
  • Urges Are Temporary Thoughts, How You Can Change Bad Habits

    Change your bad habits by not giving in to urges. You think your urge is strong and has power. It is strong, but it doesn't have inherent power because the urge is armless and legless desire that, for example, forces you to run the red light. Do not focus on the strength of the urge because if you consider yourself as a child of God and call Him "Our Father," then know, that "the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." (1 John. 4:4) These are just common ways the devil attacks you, especially...

    About to begin her word-asociation game about the other candidates with Donald Trump, Mika Brzezinski said "I'm scared to do this." Prescient on Mika's part. Because although Trump had been in a relatively light-hearted mood during his Morning Joe appearance today, things suddenly got deadly serious. When it came time to give his word on Hillary, and despite having been reminded that she had attended his wedding, Trump said: "in a certain way evil." Making clear it was no slip of the tongue, Trump repeated himself: "in a certain way, evil." Mika's "whoah!" in response probably spoke for a lot...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, is famous for his advocacy of a single-payer health care, such as prevails in Canada. However, one feature of such systems is the long wait times that patients have to endure before they get medical care. A case in point exists in the United States, with the Veterans’ Affairs Department health care system, government run, that has featured secret waiting lists upon which veterans have all too often died while in line for vital health care services. Sanders, at first, seemed to think that the story was a partisan plot to undermine the case for government-run...

    The good news for Sen.

The bad news for Rubio was that he arrived at the debate with a target drawn at his back. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fired at that target with both barrels, staggering the young presidential candidate. Rubio did not help himself by making the rookie mistake of repeating a line about President Barack Obama at least four times, suggesting that he was preprogrammed and...

    Now that Marco Rubio appears to be rising in the polls, more members of the establishment are trying to convince voters that although they are supporting him, he really is profoundly conservative. Looking at Rubio's Liberty Score rating of 79% it's clear that he is indeed more conservative than most other members of the establishment, but that doesn't make him the most principled and electable conservative in the race. Additionally, the very fact alone that the establishment is rallying around Rubio should give conservatives reason to pause. When is the last time you saw the GOP's establishment and their friends...

    President Barack Obama, when he leaves office in less than a year, will no doubt choose to believe that his legacy will consist of deliberate accomplishments, such as Obamacare, efforts to fight climate change, and the Iran nuclear weapons deal. However, the Washington Post recently suggested that Obama’s main legacy will be making more Republican voters. The implications will be far reaching for the course of American politics for decades to come.

    An old saying exists in military science that says the amateurs study tactics, whereas professionals study logistics. The equivalent in politics is that amateurs study rhetoric while professionals study turnout. Because Ted Cruz had become the master of the latter, he won the Iowa Caucuses when most of the pundits had concluded that Donald Trump was going to edge out the senator from Texas.

    It was an exciting race, but the results are in: Ted Cruz has won the Iowa caucuses. The senator from Texas was my favorite going in, but the talking heads in the media and the pollsters didn't agree. According to them, Iowa was Donald Trump's for the taking. Well, not quite so. He lost big tonight. Early in the evening people thought it could be too close to call, but that was absolutely not the case. Cruz led from the get-go and stayed on top all throughout the night. What this means is simple: Cruz has rallied Iowa conservatives behind...

A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.” I can’t think of a better description of Ted Cruz’s relationship with the DC-Wall Street Establishment – Cruz being the scoundrel of course. Cruz’s claim of not being a tool of the political elite is like Bill Clinton telling the world, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Webster’s definition of a scoundrel is a dishonest or unscrupulous person, and Cruz...

    Conservative ideologues want to keep things essentially as they are, making only marginal and generally ineffective changes. Populists want to change things to be more consistent with what "we the people" want. Often, what we the people want is better than what our "leaders" want or try to provide. Under these definitions, Trump is a populist, not a conservative ideologue. That's good.According to Dictionary. com, these are attributes of "conservatives:" Disposed to preserve existing conditions, restore traditional ones, and to limit change. According to the same source, "populism" means: Any of various, often anti-establishment or anti-intellectual political movements or philosophies that...

For the benefit of all 13 of my website followers, here's my quick take on it: Indicting Hillary quickly, or otherwise getting her to give up her candidacy, is the only chance the Dims have to win the White House. They have to get her out of the race, and soon, to get a winning ticket, i.e. Biden/Fauxcahontas on the ballot by November.

It’s no secret that the GOP Establishment (GOPe) has made him feel unwelcome; that they consider his advocates low information and uneducated.

Today, Heilemann reported that he and co-host Mark Halperin have received "a lot of blowback," i.e. criticism, from fellow MSM members for their report. Heilemann chalked up the MSM's criticism up to its "muscle memory" in not reporting on a president's child. I'd say the real reason for the MSM's reticence is its tendency to rally around liberals...

If Cruz becomes the Republican nominee this would destroy any chance he might have of defeating Hillary Clinton. If this doesn’t stir his supporters to think twice, it ought to. On Friday, November 6, 2015 Cruz attended a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, hosted by a Colorado pastor who frequently calls for putting gay people to death. The Pastor, Kevin Swanson, is well known for calling for Christians to execute homosexuals just the same as the Islamists do and...
  • Ted Cruz most likely to be nominee.

    Campaign fundamentals matter. Months before Ted Cruz declared he was running for President, he was outlining a path to victory in private meetings with skeptical conservatives. I know very few who came out of those meetings still doubting Cruz could win. Cruz has been methodically and systematically sticking to the path he mapped out. He has met turbulent and unforeseen circumstances and approached them from the strategy his team mapped out prior to Cruz’s entry into the race, which is another campaign fundamental. His approach has not been flying by the seat of his paths; his team has put in...
  • Desperate, Dishonest Donald Trump Goes Birther on Ted Cruz

    You knew it was coming! Donald Trump said in an interview that rival Ted Cruz’s Canadian birthplace was a “very precarious” issue that could make the Texas senator vulnerable if he became the Republican presidential nominee. “Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump said when asked about the topic. This is how Donald Trump operates: whenever he's threatened by someone in the polls, he tries to smear his opponents. He did so with Dr. Ben Carson,...

    The recent Wall Street Journal article that reported that the Obama administration is postponing imposing sanctions on Iran in response to the Islamic Republic’s missile tests in violation of United Nations resolutions encapsulates neatly the White House’s willingness to appease the Tehran regime at all costs. The Iranian governments has at once denied that firing of ballistic missiles violates anything and has vowed to accelerate building missiles in response to the Obama administration even considering sanctions.

    Sundance at The Conservative Tree House has written posts commenting on Ted Cruz's proselytizing as an electoral campaign strategy. Freepers have seen at least a couple of examples of this strategy recently, with threads being posted about Cruz calling on supporters to "don the full armor of God" to resist "incoming attacks" (presumably from dark forces!), or that the "Body of Christ" must be energized to gain the victory. This type of rhetoric is also heavily prominent in his campaign fund raising. One of the more epic and cringe inducing examples comes from an apparent leak by the Cruz campaign...

    Sometimes, the best way to figure out what politician will best serve your values and interests is to look at what those antithetical to your interests are trying to force upon you. In this election, the Leftist media and the decidedly non-conservative GOP are steering conservative voters either to Donald Trump or Marco Rubio. At the same time, they are using every available tactic to destroy Ted Cruz's candidacy. This should tell us something, and the something it tells us is that Ted Cruz should be the conservative candidate of choice. Let me start with the media's manipulations. To appreciate...

    According to a new report from the Dutch social policy institute, the SCP, almost one-third of Dutch voters now believes that immigration and integration are serious issues. Dutch News explains: Almost 30% now consider immigration and integration to be the biggest problems facing the country, double the figure at the start of the year. In particular, people are afraid of increasing tensions in society and many think it unfair so much money is being diverted to refugees while Dutch people live in poverty, the SCP says. Almost 40% of college graduates and 70% of those with vocational training agree that...

    Things are heating up in Britain, where voters will decide upon their country's future: will it be inside or outside the European Union? One of the most prominent British EU-critics is Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and reluctant member of the European Parliament. Farage has waged a war of words on the EU for years, so 2016 will be the year in which his life's work will either be rewarded or be undone. It's up to British voters to decide upon the matter. That's why Farage is undoubtedly pleased by this article in the Express claiming...

    The economic war being conducted by Russia against Turkey provides some opportunities for the United States if it chooses to take advantage of them. However, according to Al-Monitor, a website that covers all aspects of what is going on in the Middle East, Israel is already poised to make a diplomatic and trade breakthrough with Turkey. Israel has uncovered a great deal of proven natural gas reserves in its offshore Tamar and Leviathan fields. The Jewish state has enough gas to supply its own needs and have plenty left over for export, an astonishing turn of events, as Israel has...

    Christie Wins Fifth And Mercifully Last Republican Debate This Year... Donald Trump, shark among plankton, didn't have to win the debate. He's 42% nationally. A fact not lost on the other low digit participants including the Act of Love candidate who at 3% has been Tsunamied by a Trump ratio of 14 to 1. Low-digit John Kasich, who looked like a lurker at an I-10 rest stop, yammered about economic security. Was not Kasich a Lehman Brothers Board Member when it utterly failed and nearly took down the world's financial system. Note: During this financial cataclysm, Lehman Alumni Jeb Bush...

    The White House must have felt that President Obama needed more glowing coverage as the year wound down. Mainstream media dutifully complied, with puff pieces that should make reporters gag.
