Thad Cochran’s Flaws Not Just Fiscal


In a recent post I exposed Thad’s Cochran’s horrific fiscal record, a legacy of taxing and spending worthy of any good liberal, but sadly that’s not the only flaw he possesses.  His career does not reflect true conservative principles in the areas of national defense, the culture wars, active government, and the environment. It simplyContinue reading “Thad Cochran’s Flaws Not Just Fiscal”

Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson


On April 13, those of us who love liberty and value the ideals of the American Revolution should reflect on the 270th birthday of Thomas Jefferson, one of our greatest presidents. After penning the words of the Declaration of Independence, and serving in a variety of public offices, Jefferson stood for election to the presidencyContinue reading “Happy Birthday, Mr. Jefferson”

The new Neville Chamberlain


On the 11th anniversary of September 11, 2001, the United States was again the victim of terrorism, as attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Libya, led by Al Qaeda, resulted to the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, including two former Navy Seals.  The upheaval then spread across the region andContinue reading “The new Neville Chamberlain”

Are we still providing for the common defense?


In a report last week from national security expert Bill Gertz, a Russian Akula class nuclear attack submarine patrolled the waters of the Gulf of Mexico for a month over the summer.  The Akula’s job is to find and destroy US ballistic missile subs, known in Navy parlance as “boomers.”  It can also fire cruiseContinue reading “Are we still providing for the common defense?”

Independence Forever!


On a warm summer afternoon, June 30, 1826, nearly fifty years to the day of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, a small, informal delegation led by the Reverend George Whitney paid a visit to 90 year-old John Adams in his Quincy, Massachusetts home.  In four days the town would celebrate half a centuryContinue reading “Independence Forever!”

History Repeating Itself: Grover Cleveland and Modern American society


During Grover Cleveland’s eight years in the presidential chair, he confronted national problems nearly identical to those America faces today.  There are numerous issues with striking similarities, but the three major ones stand out above all others are – the economy, paternalism, and foreign affairs.

China and the Bush Doctrine


The recent unrest in Tibet captured the attention of the world and showcased the true nature of Red China.  This was a golden opportunity for President Bush, and the Western World, to finally confront Communist China over its continued human rights record.  But we are reminded once again how shallow our president actually is whenContinue reading “China and the Bush Doctrine”

“The Path to 9/11”


On the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, ABC released a controversial movie detailing what I would describe as government failures that led to the worst terrorist strike on American soil. The film began with the first attempt by Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda to destroy the World Trade Center in 1993, in theContinue reading ““The Path to 9/11””

The Real Lessons of Vietnam


Since 1975, in any engagement involving the U.S. military, particularly major wars such as Desert Storm, Afghanistan, and Operation Iraqi Freedom, liberals have warned of the possibility of getting into “another Vietnam.” We hear it all day, every day. Yet the real lessons of the Vietnam War have yet to be learned. And as weContinue reading “The Real Lessons of Vietnam”
