Blog From
December 4th, 2017

Last week, Lt. General Michael T. Flynn stepped into a Federal courtroom and pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. The lie was denying lawful contacts with the Russian Ambassador in the month following President Trump’s election. Most media outlets exuberantly characterized Flynn’s guilty plea as the beginning of the end for the Trump Presidency since […]

Why We All Want The Republicans To Win

Blog From
November 3rd, 2014

Election day is tomorrow. It can’t come soon enough. Campaigns these days are longer, nastier and more devoid of substance than ever before. This year, Republicans are running against President Obama and his dismal poll numbers. Democrats are running against the GOP brand using every fear tactic that creative marketing minds can muster. The candidates themselves are up to their necks in mud slung too often and too hard…

Snatching Defeat

Blog From
October 19th, 2014

Another mid-term election is a mere sixteen days away. Just a few weeks ago, pundits were predicting that the Republicans would take control of the Senate in January. There’s plenty of election history along with pretty charts and graphs to back that up. But, votes shouldn’t be counted before they’re cast because the electorate has a funny way of ignoring the polls…

The Weak In Review

Blog From
August 3rd, 2014

Almost every week, we are reminded of a terrible weakness in our current national leadership. The occupants of the House, the Senate and the Oval Office are small-minded, tireless self-promoters who polarize their respective bases to maintain power. They have no business being anywhere near Washington D.C. Here’s a glimpse of what happened this week…

Executive Disorder

Blog From
June 29th, 2014

The Constitution’s Recess Clause allows presidents to make executive appointments when the Senate is in recess. In 2012, Obama declared the Senate to be in recess when it was actually in session and proceeded to appoint three individuals to the NLRB. In National Labor Relations Board v. Canning, handed down on Thursday…

Barack Obama: The Wind-Up President

Blog From
May 24th, 2014

It seems that Barack Obama is just a wind-up toy kept in a cellophane box somewhere in the White House. Every once in a while, they take him out, wind up the key in his back good and tight and let him give speeches. At least, that’s the impression he gives because, for a commander-in-chief, he makes a great talker. Except…

Obamacare: Can Putting Lipstick on the Pig Save It? Maybe

Blog From
March 30th, 2014

We’ve come to expect unusual political gymnastics from our congressional representatives in election years. We understand that politicians talk and act in strange ways during these times, driven exclusively by self-preservation, i.e., getting re-elected. This behavior is necessitated by…

Return To The Cold War? Not A Chance

Blog From
March 3rd, 2014

There is a lot of talk lately about a return to the Cold War. Within the past ten days or so, Administration officials insisted that the chillier climes of years past have not returned. However, with Russian troops now in the Ukraine, many believe that the polar vortex of this winter brought an international political freeze with it…
