I found the  recent news that likely 2016 GOP presidential contender Jeb Bush registered to vote  in 2009  as “Hispanic” unsurprising.    After all, Jeb just seems to identify with the Hispanic community more than the historic American nation that built this country. Therefore, it doesn’t seem unlikely that Jeb would have registered as “Hispanic”. […]

President Obama went to Miami to speak to a “town hall”.   This “town hall” wasn’t open to the general public but to a select audience of amnesty-boosters. Obama defended his unilateral amnesty, bashed the Republicans and reassured illegal aliens that he is on their side. Where is the GOP?  Why aren’t Republicans calling Obama […]

The English language is an important unifying element of American society.  It used to be, that is.  Today,  linguistic balkanization is dividing Americans, and our own politicians (of both parties) encourage it. Think about it.  Which is easier – to keep up with lying politicians in one language, or in two or more languages? President […]

The Oklahoma Land Run was a unique aspect of American history, and an important part of the state of Oklahoma’s heritage. Taking place from 1889 to 1895, the land runs were races for land, in which prospective landowners raced for 160-acre farms.  If they could successfully occupy these farms for five years, they would receive […]

In December of 2014, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban leader Raul Castro simultaneously announced the “normalization” of U.S.-Cuban relations. Despite all the hoopla, the normalization is still really a proposal and there are many details to be resolved.  And how might it affect Mexico? To read the entire article, click here.

One of the favorite rhetorical tactics of the same-sex marriage lobby is to equate same-sex marriage with the civil rights issues of the 1960s.  This is a very successful tactic, though not a fair one.   But it’s being utilized in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The states of Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas […]

In our system of government, the legislative branch  (Congress at the national level) is supposed to make the laws.   A determined president, however, can pass legislation unilaterally by  (a) signing an executive order or some other sort of presidential edict, or (b) having  various government departments  pass regulations.   Of course, if Congress is […]

In his classic The Art of War, ancient Chinese martial sage Sun Tzu said that   “… to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” The Obama Administration, with the support of the Mainstream Media, controls the upper ground. Despite the fact […]
