The State of the Union is tonight. This will be President Trump's first. Considering 90% of all media stories (print, radio and television) were negative for our 45th president, it's amazing to see how much was accomplished in his first year. The confirmation of Judge Gorsuch, pulling the US out of bad trade deals, opening… Continue reading SOTU 2018 drinking game
OMG, he's tweeting again! He called himself a genius. He thinks he's the smartest person in the room. He won't stop poking at Kim Jong Un. He is going to start a war. He is a paranoid idiot who eats McDonald's in bed to avoid the risk of being poisoned. He is incapable of understanding… Continue reading What does it mean to act presidential?
So Oprah Winfrey gave an inspirational speech at the 2018 Golden Globe awards. And the crowd went wild. Speculation and encouragement arose to get her to run for president in 2020. Nothing demonstrates how politics works than watching fans of Oprah encourage this to happen. Because what it demonstrates is that if people like you,… Continue reading NOprah, It’s Beneath You
Imagine a book coming out, or an essay or one-hour presentation with PowerPoint slides. Imagine the information presented said that everyone around President Barack Obama or George W. Bush or Harry Truman or Theodore Roosevelt or Thomas Jefferson thought these men fools. Imagine the person presenting this information claimed that all the president’s men thought… Continue reading We Already Knew This
A secret government UFO program run out of the Pentagon?! This is the kind of news that gets us X-files fans salivating that the truth isn’t quite so far out there but right here. And I couldn’t have timed the release of my latest novel, CHASING DISCLOSURE any better. What marketing! A Pentagon UFO research… Continue reading Harry Reid’s UFO Hobby – You Paid For It
It’s been far too long since I contributed some thoughts to this blog. Most of the reason has been due to my final push to get this new novel completed. It’s been two years in the making: One year of intense study and refresher of the subject matter at hand and another year to knit… Continue reading Full Disclosure; or, What I’d Rather Be Doing
It's been awhile since I've had the chance to put my thoughts down on current events. I spend more time on Twitter of late because I have not had the free time I would like to write more. I know, excuses, excuses. Over the last few weeks, I considered writing (again) about why President Trump… Continue reading Strong, admirable and unflappable and the Left hates her
Well, we thought we knew what all the kneeling was about. I mean, we were told it was about their First Amendment right to protest injustice, police violence and the unfairness experienced by some in our country. We were told it's a quiet display to show solidarity with those who have suffered social inequities. But,… Continue reading Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL
“We have a choice. We have two options as human beings. We have a choice between conversation and war. That's it. Conversation and violence." - Sam Harris The evening of August 11, 2017, brought out a scene reminiscent of Triumph of the Will through the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, Virginia. A crowd of… Continue reading Ideas Need a Free Market
Hasan Piker is missing the point when he debated about safe spaces with Charlie Kirk during Saturday night’s Politicon event. This was one of the more interesting debates on the slate, as I had seen several videos of Piker surface on social media during recent months. I was disappointed. Riots and Protests Piker wanted… Continue reading Piker Thuds in Kirk Debate
Throughout this healthcare debacle, the side wanting the government run, single payer option is trying to scare people by claiming the attempts to repeal Obamacare are attempts to kill you. Alarms are sounding with claims that the purpose is to eradicate the poor. They claim the purpose of repealing Obamacare is to benefit the rich.… Continue reading Show, Don’t Tell
You thinking what I’m thinking? Or better yet, you thinking what I concluded back in 1996? What exactly does the GOP stand for? Healthcare has been their issue throughout the Obama Administration. They attempted to repeal it sixty times while he was in office. Mostly this was a dog and pony because they knew… Continue reading Sods of Plastic
I had a chance to interview Congressman Barry Loudermilk on the heels of the Senate's failure to pass a repeal or a replacement of the Affordable Care Act. We also discussed the possibility of this same debacle occurring when Congress goes to tackle tax reform. We wrapped up the interview with a discussion about the… Continue reading Congressman Barry Loudermilk discusses the failed healthcare reforms, tax reform and budgeting
I honestly do not wake up each morning looking for reasons to defend President Trump's Twitter behavior. I already wrote a piece a few months back where I explained why I believe his tweets were about more than just being crass or silly or unpresidential. By now, I had hoped his tweet-storms would have been… Continue reading Trump tweets once again; what could he be doing instead?
