    Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Barack Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action. (please see link for full article)

    Pick a card, any card. Racist. Sexist. Homophobic. We all knew it was only a matter of time before Democrats/Liberals played one or more of their Big Three Cards to silence, intimidate and crush opposition to their latest power grab/tyrannical attack on our freedom. With a majority of Americans taking rancher Cliven Bundy's side against Obama's BLM thugs, Democrat Harry Reid concluded that it was time to play their old faithful, tried and true race card. As Gomer Pyle use to say, "Surprise. Surprise." We knew it was coming. This is how the Left rolls. When America rallied around Duck...

  • Va. consultant Boyd Marcus’s case shows how money trumps principles in politics today

    Washington Post ^ | 1-19-14 | Robert McCartney
    If you ever doubted that money outweighs principles in contemporary politics, then the case of Richmond campaign consultant Boyd Marcus should permanently erase such ambiguity in your mind. Marcus, a prominent figure in Virginia politics for two decades, made headlines in August when he abandoned a lifetime of supporting Republicans to endorse Democrat Terry McAuliffe for governor. McAuliffe’s team and Marcus trumpeted the conversion as an important political sign that mainstream Republicans were rejecting the tea party conservatism espoused by GOP candidate Ken Cuccinelli II. Instead, we learned Thursday, the primary motive was entirely mercenary. An e-mail was made public...

    A Conversation with Bernie MarcusHome Depot Founder Bernie Marcus shares his concerns for our nation and how frightened he is by what Pres. Obama's policies mean for America, especially for our children and future generations. In particular, the lack of job creation and rising home foreclosures are limiting the American dream for millions of families. As someone who has taken Home Depot from one store to one of the largest companies in the world, and as someone who has hired millions of people over many years in business, Bernie is in a unique position to know which policies can bring...

    Campaign tips from Cicero's brother sound awfully familiar It was a bitter and volatile campaign, with accusations of inconsistency, incompetence and scandal filling the air. Candidates competed to portray themselves as the true conservative choice, while voters fretted about the economy and war threatened in the Middle East. The year was 64 B.C., and Marcus Tullius Cicero was running for Roman consul. Cicero was a political outsider from a small town near Rome, but he was a brilliant man and gifted speaker, with a burning desire to gain the highest office in the ancient republic. As the campaign approached, his...

    Suddenly, there is a lot of discussion about whether or not we live in a "post-racial society." With the 2012 presidential election right around the corner, I can only conclude that, despicably, "race-baiting" will be a major component of the left's and the White House's Obama re-election campaign. Recently, a black publication interviewed me for an article, the topic being "Is America a post-racial society?" Then, flipping through the TV channels, I caught a bit of two blacks on CNN discussing whether or not America is a post-racial society. It's coming up everywhere lately.I am just giving you a heads-up,...

    You and I are politically well informed. But there are many Americans like my family who do not follow politics as closely as we do. Their political views are shaped by liberal media bias hit pieces, spin, and sound bites. 99.9 % of my family are Democrats because Marcus family traditional taught us the Democrats are "for the little guy." Republicans are "rich white racists." Liberal media and the Democratic Party jointly support and promote this silly, simple lie, which still wins the Democrats 95% of the black vote.

No, I am not suggesting that Obama would bite off the ear of our presidential candidate, but Obama is a Chicago-style, no-holds-barred politician.

    (Reuters) - An appeals court ruled on Friday that President Barack Obama's healthcare law requiring Americans to buy healthcare insurance or face a penalty was unconstitutional, a blow to the White House. The Appeals Court for the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, found that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to buy coverage, but also ruled that the rest of the wide-ranging law could remain in effect. The legality of the so-called individual mandate, a cornerstone of the healthcare law, is widely expected to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Obama administration has defended the provision as...

    For too long, Americans went along with politically correct liberal orthodoxy. But finally, they're taking back what's theirs. Monday night, I performed and spoke at a wonderful Tea Party patriot banquet in Scottsdale, Arizona. The keynote speaker was conservative radio talk show host Tammy Bruce. Tammy Bruce delivered a great speech. Ten years ago, Bruce was a hardcore liberal Democrat activist. Similar to Saul on the road to Damascus, Bruce saw the light – that conservatism is best for all people, especially minorities. As a black conservative escapee from the liberal plantation, I say to Bruce, "Right on sista!" Another...

    I'm re-reading a book I read several years ago titled "Beyond Defeat" by a wonderful black civil rights pioneer, James E. Johnson. To quote Johnson, "...there are only two things that motivate people: One is fear, and the other is love". In the early 50s, Johnson's journey as a civil rights trail blazer began when he became the first black U.S. Marine Corps NCO (Non-commissioned officer). Johnson went to see a movie at the "on base" movie theater and sat in the section reserved for staff NCOs. An MP asked Johnson to move because he was not a white NCO....

In the 50s, married with a wife, three kids and employed as a laborer, dad was among the first blacks to break the color barrier into the Baltimore Fire Dept.

This story (detailed here) is one of direct involvement by Kerry in the set up of U.S. manufacturing in and the export of U.S. jobs to China.
