Restoring Freedom: Now or Never (And how to do it)
Big government has been crushing the United States for the past two decades. The last 8 years in particular signaled a potentially irreversible slide towards socialism and permanent debt. In typical American fashion, in the 11th hour, the citizenry acted by purging the Presidency and Congress of embedded insiders by handing the reigns to (hopefully) anti-establishment Republicans. Now, for the first time in many decades, there is a real opportunity to improve the state of liberty for all Americans. But to do so, it is essential that we understand what has gone wrong and why. The good news is: It’s really quite simple. (Read More…)
Presidential Communication: A Brief History
Since George Washington was inaugurated in 1789, the way our Presidents have communicated with the citizenry has changed dramatically. As a surveyor in western Virginia, member of the House of Burgesses and Continental Congress, Commander of the Continental Army, President of the Constitutional Convention and later, first President of the United States, Washington was an expert traveler. But even he averaged only about 5 miles per hour by horse. This, of course, did not account for the official greetings, state dinners, military honors and general fanfare that accompanied him wherever he went, particularly in his later years. Even so, only a small percentage of adoring Americans ever had the honor of hearing his voice. (Read More…)
A Return to the Rule of Law
If there’s one thing that Americans find intolerable; it’s the blatant disregard for the rule of law, especially by government. As the Supreme Law of the Land, it must begin with the application of the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and all 27 Amendments as they were intended, not subverted activist judges to suit their Utopian dreams.
For almost two and a half centuries, as nations around the world came and went, except on rare occasion such as our Civil War, people across the globe would watch with awe and envy the peaceful transfer of power in the United States. (Read More…)
Eliminate the Electoral College if You Hate Minorities!
In the wake of Donald J. Trump’s historic election to the Presidency, the political left has again picked up the rallying cry demanding the elimination of the Electoral College. In the 228 years since 1788, the United States have held 56 Presidential Elections. In four of these, the winner did not secure the popular vote. This fact, however, has not stopped thousands of Leftists from protesting and rioting in cities and college campuses around the country in anticipation of another instance. Emotions aside, here are the historical facts: (Read More…)
Election Fraud: Nothing to See Here!
Google “Voter Fraud” and notice how many articles are listed by left-wing “news organizations” citing so-called experts saying that it is “rare”, “overblown”, or as the Huffington Post declares, “consistent since 2000”. The same is true for other, similar search terms on Google such as “Voter Fraud Cases” and “History of Voter Fraud”.
If I lived in a cave, and only had Google to keep me company, I might believe it… but I don’t. I read and I know of the many claims that Google regularly (Read More…)
Why Should Anyone Trust the Election Results?
There is a consensus among corporate media on both the right and the left that Donald Trump made a huge mistake in the third Presidential Debate by not agreeing to accept the results of the election.
Chris Wallace: “Do you make the same commitment that you will absolutely — sir, that you will absolutely accept the result of this election?” (Read More…)
Globalism is the Single Greatest Threat to the United States
In West Palm Beach, Donald Trump gave a momentous speech warning about the dangers of globalism and Hillary Clinton’s dedication to it. This was one of the most powerful speeches he’s given to date because for the first time since Eisenhower’s “Industrial Military Complex” exit speech in 1961, a powerful public figure overtly warned Americans about existing forces within our own government that threaten our liberty. (Read More…)
Woulda Coulda Shoulda: Trump’s Lackluster Debate Performance
For many months we’ve heard and read politicians, so-called journalists and pundits alike espouse their belief that Donald J. Trump is not really a Republican. They question his commitment to Conservative ideals at every turn, perhaps uncomfortable with the prospect of a President who does not tow the party line, perhaps concerned that a true political outsider will dismantle the feeding trough of the American trust which has enabled them to become fat and comfortable. (Read More…)
Our History of Banning Certain Groups from Immigrating
Throughout our history, the United States have always adapted our immigration policies to suit the times and the will of the citizenry.
Progressives have worked aggressively for decades to systematically rewrite history in support of their destructive ideologies. They must distort or ignore facts because facts lead to truth and common sense, and those are their greatest enemies. One such recent example is the claim that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is a xenophobe, a racist and an anti-immigrant bigot (Read More…)
Are Fair Elections Even Possible In The Digital Age?
The American War for Independence signaled the beginnings of an extraordinarily bright time in the history of our species. The 13 original States unified to defeat the greatest military of the time and won the privilege of self-rule. This happened because a one-time event occurred when many of the world’s greatest political minds appeared at the same time in the same place with near-perfect, but horrible conditions. The potential reward was high enough, and the potential threat of servitude was terrible enough for the well-read, educated and fiercely independent populous to risk everything to chance a momentous leap from subject to citizen. (Read More…)
Paying Tribute To Iran
Recently, the President of the United States was discovered to have secretly organized a shipment of $440 million to Iran which happened to coincide with the release of four American prisoners held in Tehran. It was paid in foreign currency, ostensibly because it is illegal to pay U.S. Dollars to Iran. At least two more Americans have since been arrested. Was it a ransom or a tribute to Iran? (Read More…)
A Tonic For The Election Blues
In these last 100 days of the 2016 Presidential Election, Americans will be bombarded with a constant cacophony of emotional toxicity. Whenever a radio, computer or television is on and nearby, we will hear and see heavily financed attempts to influence our actions on Election Day, and the vast majority of it will be negative. Talking heads will go on angry tirades, panelists will walk over each other’s arguments, editorialists will lie, our programs will be interrupted with carefully designed commercials to manipulate our emotions, and the news will be filled with stories of horrible things people are doing to one another both at home and abroad. For those of us seeking sanctuary from the chaos, there will be few places to hide. However, through this black fog one can find respite by consciously distinguishing between what IS happening to us versus what we fear MIGHT happen to us. (Read More…)
Aristocracy In America
Since the mid-18th century, before there was a United States, America came to despise aristocracy and everything it stood for. Today, with fewer and fewer voters familiar with history, aristocracy has experienced resurgence by using this vacuum as a new medium in which to flourish. (Read More…)
License, Registration And Insurance
As a musician, for years I’ve been accustomed to being that one, crappy car coming down the road at 2:00 a.m. after a gig or recording session and the blue lights go off behind me. I ask myself, “What did I do?” Inevitably, the heart starts racing and in my mind, I run through the last few minutes to find the reason I am being pulled over. Sometimes I know, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes it’s justified, sometimes I feel it’s not. But I don’t have all of the facts. What I do know is that my own Utopian view of the world would include police officers because we need them. I know history. I know reality and I’ve encountered my share of criminals and police are needed to counter them. (Read More…)
Yesterday I watched two people talking about a recent highly-publicized miscarriage of justice. While the first went through the list of crimes the public figure is getting away with because of political connections, the other slumped a bit, waved his hand and said, “They’re all corrupt. It’s always been that way.” (Read More…)
