Soul searching to rediscover the real America post 9/11. Is it still out there? Are you better off than you were nineteen years ago? It's a question you don’t hear much from politicians these days, especially those solely preoccupied with turning the current Chinese Communist Party (CCP, or Wuhan, if you prefer) virus pandemic into an all-consuming enemy that threatens to bring down the nation unless every last ounce of America’s full faith and credit is expended to combat th
You may not be interested in politics, but politics is interested in you By show of hands, how many of you took the weekend off from politics? Don’t fudge it, did you intentionally avoid watching any of the news channels during those three days? Only the politically disengaged would truthfully raise their arm towards the heavens -- if indeed there are any such creatures left anymore. In today’s social media interconnected world there’s no escape from the thoughts and opinions
Betting odds, “Joe Hiden” and going straight from the practice field to the Super Bowl In “normal” (is there such a thing anymore?) presidential election years, most Americans would pause during the Labor Day holiday to take a rest from politics before the all-out fury of the fall campaign to come. But a respite from the contentious environment engulfing the nation in 2020 doesn’t look to be in the cards this time. With the fate of the nation possibly on the ballot in two mon
If we didn’t know better we’d think guilt is what drives the entirety of the Democrat Party
How far should one go to assuage his or her internal guilt?
It's a soul-searching exercise some folks are undertaking these days. With the Democrat National Convention (in whatever form it will take) set to commence on Monday and liberal nominee-to-be Joe Biden’s running mate choice -- ultra-leftist California Senator Kamala Harris -- announced a couple days ago, there’s a heck of a
Democrats fight like crazy to keep the public subdued over COVID-19, but they’re losing
If you’ve ever been camping and worked desperately to start and then sustain a fire with flimsy, unseasoned or slightly dampened wood, you understand how Democrats must feel now that the public’s intense fright over the Chinese Communist Party (or Wuhan, if you prefer) virus appears to have subsided… and dwindled to almost nothing.
In this case, it’s simple. The heat is gone. As British
Grampa Joe Biden becomes significantly less appealing when his faculties are in question
Forget issues and platforms, the most likable candidate always wins.
Political scientists, pundits and “normal” people are always looking for explanations as to why things happen in elections. Academics spend decades studying voter and human behavior to discover the “magic” formula of their craft. In the process they consult psychologists, scientists, mathematicians, statisticians and h
In November, Americans should not accept getting what they deserve
“Every nation gets the government it deserves” -- Savoyard philosopher Joseph de Maistre
For those unfamiliar with de Maistre, he was no liberty-loving revolutionary. According to Wikipedia, he was, “A key figure of the Counter-Enlightenment, Maistre regarded monarchy both as a divinely sanctioned institution and as the only stable form of government. He called for the restoration of the House of Bourbon to
Campaign 2020 is nearly here and there’s great economic news on the horizon
It's starting to feel real, and not just because the Democrat “convention” begins a week from today.
The “it” I’m referring to is the heart of the 2020 presidential campaign, the immortal quadrennial political jousting match between two competing American worldviews, which this year features candidates similar in age and Western European ethnic origin but couldn’t be more different in most other res
ll The President’s Men and a congressional Republican coup that never will be
It's always fascinating whenever Democrats and the media -- one and the same -- give Republicans advice, but one particular suggestion last weekend was shocking in its boldness and astonishing nervy ignorance.
Legendary (only because he was immortalized in Hollywood film lore) Washington Post investigative reporter Carl Bernstein thinks it’s time for Republican congressional leaders to conduct a l
