    How Quick the Message Fades By Frank Salvato March 5, 2010 It is stunning to find out that there are still some elected officials in Washington DC especially on the Right side of the aisle who dont fully understand the message being sent by the American citizenry regarding their grotesque spending addiction. No, Im not talking about earmarks or pork barrel spending, which in and of themselves should be egregious enough to warrant defeat in the next election. I am referring to how US Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) was thrown under the bus when he demanded that his fellow Senators...

    I live in Illinois, just outside of Chicago. I live in the state that incubated the political career of Barack Obama and for that, as a resident of the State of Illinois and a conservative, I apologize. But this puts me in a unique position to afford you a glimpse of things to come for our nation should Barack Obama attain the Oval Office, and especially if Democrats maintain or increase their control in Congress. I present to the citizens of the United States the State of Illinois; a working model that illustrates the consequences of a government run by...

    How Many Rights Are Democrats Willing to Forfeit? by Frank Salvato With the announcement that Hillary Clinton is abandoning her quest for the Oval Office the Democrat National Committee (DNC) - and specifically the DNC's Rules and Bylaws Committee - has effectively selected the candidate for their party. I say selected because, by construct, the decision making process was taken away from the party faithful and placed in the hands of an elitist class of party insiders. These party insiders - superdelegates and the DNC Executive Committee - have literally usurped the will of the people by marginalizing the popular...

    There is little doubt that a heated debate is taking place over the issue of immigration reform. The alarming aspect of this debate is less the where, when and why it is taking place and more about who the debate is between. With an overwhelming majority of Americans from every political party in opposition to the current proposal being floated by select senators and the White House, it appears – incredibly – that the debate is actually between the people and our government. Our nation is a Democratic Republic, a Representative Democracy. The electorate casts ballots to elect individuals to...

    December 30, 2005 - The argument over whether President Bush has the authority to direct the National Security Agency to listen in on the conversations of suspected terrorists on US soil is split primarily into two camps; those who believe we are engaged in a war for our very survival against radical Islam and those who believe – and always have – that terrorism operates under a set of rules that govern its actions and therefore should be treated as a law enforcement issue. This is just another example of why there should have been a formal declaration of war...

    Pre-Occupied With Miers, America Misses That Terrorists Get Nukes By Frank Salvato October 7, 2005 Yesterday President Bush tried yet again to refocus the nation on what is arguably the most important issue facing the world today; radical Islamist terrorism. But while most of the nation is mindlessly obsessing over why Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers' parents didn't get fleeced for a liberal Ivy League education, an issue that concerns the very survival of this country, and perhaps the free world took place and it did so with nary an eyebrow being raised. This week it was reported that recently...

    It seems that all the pundits and politicos are in an outrage over the abuse of the prisoners of war in Iraq and rightly so. The treatment of anyone, enemy combatant or not, should never drop to that of the lowest common denominator. To its credit, the United States military has brought charges against those responsible, have been conducting investigations and making arrests with regard to reports of abuse for well over a year. They are doing things by the book, by standard operating procedure, as it should be. But through all of this one thing has been blatantly obvious,...

    Should the worse case scenario happen if John Kerry is elected President of the United States, his wife Theresa Heinz Kerry will be representing our country as the First Lady. Since she will be in the public eye, it is prudent to understand the woman who would be residing in the White House for the next four years. Here are some of the ways she views her world. She has been quoted, "Another thing that drives me crazy, and I hope I don't offend anyone here, is WAL-MART," "They destroy communities."1 Although Mrs. Kerry holds one million dollars of Wal...

    I am having a little bit of a problem with the elite media today, the elite media and the liberal left. I know, when don't I have a problem with them, right? But today I believe even the most pro-media/pro-liberal among us would have to agree that there is a massive contradiction playing out in the headlines. I am talking about the retreat of a few of the more pusillanimous countries that have made up the coalition of the willing to date and the response to it. With the Dominican Republic's announced withdrawal of their contribution to the coalition forces...

    "There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism." --Alexander Hamilton I wonder how many people in the United States have visited the gravesites of soldiers who fought in wars representing our country. It is a very sobering experience to actually read the epitaphs written in memorial to the men who would willingly put their own lives in harms way in order to extend or preserve the freedom of others.

    I cannot tell you how many emails I have gotten from Vietnam veterans who are disgusted with John Kerry. Some are disgusted because of the anti-war stance he took after his service in the Navy and others are disgusted by his shameless promotion of his exploits while "in-country" during his abbreviated tour of duty. But what I am hearing from most of them was summed up quite succinctly by a Marine - I dare not say ex-Marine because as I have been told in no uncertain terms, once a Marine always a Marine - from Palm Bay, Florida by the...

    "Only a communist would talk as though health insurance and a college education ought to be available at a certain cost as a person's birthright. This is totalitarian collectivist nonsense at its worst. The United States is a constitutional republic. Kerry is running for office in the wrong country." The Federalist 04-15 Digest President George W. Bush would like to see all Americans have access to high quality and affordable health care. This is a noble goal. In a capitalist economy it's reasonable to believe that this can be done through choice and competition. Capitalism promotes innovation, cost control, and...

    Liberal activist Barbara Streisand has gone on record accusing President Bush of being inept in the War on Terror. Citing the one side of the two-sided testimony given by disgruntled ex-employee and opportunist Richard Clarke as the truth, Streisand conveniently forgets that her hero, Bill Clinton, did nothing but lob cruise missiles at our foes from afar…or is that from a fairway. "Finally ... finally we can talk about what's really going on. Rather than accept the myth that 9/11 turned President Bush into a "hero" ... former counterterrorism expert Richard Clarke has bravely spoken out to tell us the...

    "Prior to the rise of whole language methods of teaching children to read, nearly all children mastered the skill of reading without undue difficulty. In the 3-4 decades between 1960-5 and 1995-2000 the methodology employed for the teaching of reading (not only in Australia but also in America and Britain) was changed, with disastrous outcomes. Between 25 and 40% of children were graduating from high school in a condition described as functionally illiterate. More significantly, even while the gap between the top performers and the lost children increased exponentially, the high achievers were under-challenged." 1 Having graduated in l990 with...

    From the very beginning of this election cycle it has been clear, the divide between the American people with respect to our political culture is wider than it was for the 2000 election. Ever since the controversial Supreme Court decision that concluded George W. Bush won the 2000 Presidential Election, what should have been the final word for all to accept, there have been those from the party that preaches tolerance for all who have embraced intolerance at a level seldom seen. For a brief moment after the September 11th attacks it almost seemed as though our country left the...

    Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry was in Florida recently doing what he does best, stumping without a message, without substance. But I have noticed that Kerry has risen to heights that would make Bill Clinton envious regarding one campaign tactic he has chosen to embrace: pandering. John Kerry is emerging as one of the best vote panderers the Democrats have seen in a long time, and for the party that virtually invented "spin" that is not a small feat. Speaking to a crowd in West Palm Beach he was quoted as saying, "People ask me what it feels like to...

    We have seen another inappropriate outburst from the liberal left of the Democratic Party come and go without a word of outrage from Democratic leadership. US Representative Corrine Brown (D-FL) issued an incredibly racist statement in anger during a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill between administration officials and members of Congress regarding the Haitian crisis. This outburst so stunned those at the meeting that condemnation of Brown's statement has been streaming into the public forum. Curiously, but unsurprisingly, the Democratic Party leadership and leadership from the activist liberal left has been deafeningly silent. Rep. Brown, obviously unprepared for the meeting...

    With the death of Carlie Brucia it is clear, there are monsters among us. Carlie, an 11-year old from Sarasota, Florida, was abducted and murdered by a man with an extensive criminal record, a man who by all rights should have been in the custody of the Florida Department of Corrections. Joseph Smith is the murderer but the system that afforded him the opportunity to murder is the monster. This young girl, a “shining light that will not be lost”, as her school principal put it, was simply walking home from a friend’s house after a slumber party. Her only...
