  • If Trump Is Nominee.... [my opus]

    As a 5th generation Republican and Lifelong Conservative the political events of recent years have been frustrating. None are more frustrating than this election cycle. We prayed and hoped for a real Conservative to counter the leftward pull of Obama. We wanted someone to pull the country to the right so we could possibly be, at least, center America, where we typically like to land in national politics. We have had several Conservative candidates this cycle, but many who have called themselves "Conservative" have coalesced behind a man who is the farthest thing from Conservative as is imaginable and why?...
  • Yes, Ted Cruz Can Win the GOP Nomination

    When a man’s logic rests on the decorum and magnanimity of Donald Trump, you probably want to stop following his trail of bread crumbs before total and complete madness sets in. For no sooner had Ted Cruz declared victory in the Iowa Caucuses than Charles Hurt took to these very pages on Tuesday and claimed Mr. Trump to be the real winner despite the fact he didn’t win. Because, you know, Donald is so nice and all.

    Growing up in an unhappy and unsupportive home, I took pride, at least, in our family history. My great-great grandfather, a Southern boy, defied community and family pressures and supported Lincoln. He went to Illinois and joined the Union Army. We were Republican ever since and it was the one inspiration I took from my heritage. Over time though I was no longer proud to be Republican as the party began to stand for almost nothing. I found solace, however, in describing myself as Conservative. "Conservative" embraced my values and political positions exquisitely. I unashamedly proclaimed myself to be Conservative....
  • How Donald Trump and Ted Cruz Differ on the Issues

    WASHINGTON -- One year from Wednesday, a new President of the United States will be inaugurated. A new poll shows Republican Donald Trump leading Ted Cruz two-to-one in New Hampshire, less than three weeks before the primary. Sarah Palin's endorsement helps Trump deflect attacks from Cruz over Trump's conservative credentials. But the candidates differ on several issues, including taxes, government surveillance and immigration. (Click Link for Balance of Article)

    After the Iowa Caucus is in the books and Trump comes in third place, I know the first thought that will come in the mind of Trump supporters is that there was some establishment corruption to allow Ted Cruz to win. I'm going to beat the pundits to the punch on their "excellent analysis" the morning after the Iowa Caucus. The reason Trump will come in third place in Iowa is for the following reasons: 1. Ted Cruz has a very impressive ground game in Iowa. Every county has excited volunteers that are just waiting to drive grandma to the...

    The Hill ^ | 09/09/15 | Alexander Bolton
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is dismissing a House Republican Hail-Mary attempt to kill the Iran nuclear deal by postponing a vote on a disapproval resolution. House conservatives want to delay the vote and argue that the 60-day congressional review period has not yet elapsed because the administration has yet to submit paperwork detailing side deals between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). ADVERTISEMENT Tea-Party firebrand Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the House GOP effort Wednesday by panning an upcoming Senate vote on the disapproval resolution as a show vote and putting pressure on McConnell to delay...

    The first journalist from an American Jewish pro-Israel publication to be given an Iranian visa since 1979 reported Wednesday that he had found little evidence to suggest that Iran wanted to destroy Israel, as widely asserted by critics of the Iranian nuclear agreement. The journalist, Larry Cohler-Esses, assistant managing editor for news at The Forward, an influential New York-based newspaper catering to American Jews, also wrote that people in Iran, including its Jews, were eager for outside interaction and willing to speak critically about their government. While he heard widespread criticism of the Israeli government and its policies toward the...

    LOS ANGELES -- Citing harm to marine life, California coastal regulators on Wednesday soundly rejected a utility's plan to map offshore earthquake faults near a nuclear power plant by blasting loud air cannons. The unanimous vote by the California Coastal Commission came after an hours-long public hearing attended by environmentalists, fishermen and residents who were overwhelmingly opposed to the seismic testing. The proposed survey by Pacific Gas & Electric Co. involves firing sonic pulses into the ocean. Sensors on the seafloor would pick up the echoes to create 3-D maps of geologic faults that the utility said are needed to...

    The Washington Post ^ | 11/01/2012 | David Ignatius
    A detailed CIA timeline of the assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi paints an anguishing picture of embattled Americans waiting for Libyan local security forces that didnt come and courageous CIA officers who died on a rooftop without the heavy weapons they needed, trying to protect their colleagues below. Its a story of individual bravery, but also of a CIA misjudgment in relying on Libyan militias and a newly formed Libyan intelligence organization to keep Americans safe in Benghazi. While there were multiple errors that led to the final tragedy, theres no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership...

    Okay, so occasionally I watch reality tv--specifically, the real housewives franchise. In fairness, I actually listen to the tv in my kitchen while doing other things. It makes me feel less guilty not to have actually sat down and devoted my entire attention. After all, you can't help feeling squeamish knowing that participants are hand-picked by producers based on their personality disorders and willingness to drink while the cameras are rolling. But, of course, that is what makes these train wrecks, at times, riveting.One of this season's new so-called housewives on the Real Housewives of New York is Carole Radziwill,...

    This a.m. CNN interviewed the last living original member of the Diamonds and asked if he minded that the RNC used My Girl after Ann Romney's speech. (Wonder if they will similarly interview musicians after the DNC Convention.) The gentleman, an Obama supporter, said he was glad the song "transcends borders." Anyone else see this?

    Someone emailed me a scathing article written by Steve Lopez in the LA Times. The exact title is listed above if anyone would like to access it at the LA Times site. I'm not familiar with procedures since I almost never post, but don't think we can directly link to the LA Times.I can see plenty to criticize about the article since it is a real hitpiece on Bush, but don't know any of the technicalities of the issue and don't know how to respond. My friend asked me what I had to say about it. According to the article,...
  • Streisand Getting Patriotic

    THE patriotic fervor that has Americans waving flags and opening their hearts - and their wallets - to the victims of the World Trade Center attacks, has touched even Barbra Streisand. The singer has removed all her anti-President Bush rants from her website and deleted links to anti-Bush Web sites as well, reports's Jeannette Walls. Earlier this year, Streisand sent a memo to Capitol Hill Democrats calling Bush, "a destructive man" who "stole the election through family ties, arrogance and intimidation, employing Republican operatives to exercise the tactics of voter fraud by disenfranchising thousands of blacks, elderly Jews and ...

    The United Nations relocating to St. Petersburg (not the one in Florida, either)? Say, that's an idea. Quick, phone Bekins. Offer to help pack and load. It's a bit premature, though, for U.N. delegates from all over the world to be filling out forwarding-address cards at the New York post office. Getting the international agency's green-glass global headquarters out of midtown Manhattan is still only an idea ... but then, so was putting it there in the first place. This time the idea comes from Moscow. So it has to be taken seriously. Or not. According to Interfax news service ...
