Of Jihad, guns, Donald and a used burka.

Share

On October 1, 2015, I wrote an article inspired by Governor Jerry Brown’s misguided decision to create more “gun free zones,”  in which I asked the question, is California next? On December 2nd that question was answered. The President’s response to the San Bernardino shooting was almost immediate. A milk toast and ever soggy serving of anti-Second Amendment rhetoric. Once again…

Presidential Expectations

Before he moved on to other things, I used to indulge in an occasional late night viewing of Craig Ferguson. For those who missed it, he was the previous host of the “Late Late Show.” Oh, how he could make me laugh. There were routines where he actually solicited tears. Then there are the other times. Frequently, he was simply…

Labeling President Barack Hussain Obama

Share

Yesterday in a Town Hall meeting, Donald Trump was asked a question in which the interrogator referred to President Obama as a Muslim and referred to the never ending fallacy concerning our President’s citizenship. A question, I might add, which The Donald seemed to enjoy and failed to correct. Come on people, it is time for this uninformed foolishness to…

The Architects of Armageddon?

Share

For they are the spirits… which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And he gathered, them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. Revelations 16:14 and 16 Christians, Jews and Muslims everywhere are deeply concerned about events…

Whack-a-Mole: A conspiracy theory

Share

It is getting so that every election cycle a new grass roots movement pops up just like some whack-a-mole game. It started right after President Obama first took office in January 2009. Let’s start in Chicago when Rick Santelli called for a tea party to protest a liberal Obama agenda. It caught on. Soon tea party protests were being held…

Iran gets painted with Obama’s Idealism

Share

I have finally come to understand President Obama. The revelation that brought him into focus was aided by Joseph Schumpeter who said:   “The first thing a man will do for his ideals is lie. Yes, I believe President Barack Obama to be an Ideologue. His intentions, even if smothered in arrogance, seem to be founded in a set of…

A new flag of tyranny

Today, my Whitehouse is decorated with rainbow lights. It celebrates the Supreme Court of the United States declaration that same sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states. Today, my Whitehouse is decorated with rainbow lights. President Obama said “Americans should be very proud,” because small acts of courage “slowly made an entire country realize that love is love”…

The Moral Middle| America Stands in Shame

Share

The United States has long been a beacon for democracy throughout the world. Today we stand in shame as would-be self appointed Overlords of the universe; and whoever dares to stand in our way will forever be branded and upbraided as… racist. Israel is a democracy and an important American ally. Reports this last week have demonstrated how the U.S.…

The Moral Middle: Divisive National Leadership

Share

We have become a vindictive and vengeful people. A country that embraces and upholds lies. In the last six and a half years, the ethics and moral fiber of our nation has diminished and those that we trust with our national ethos, have shown us the way. The first President that I voted for was Ronald Regan but my memory…

The Moral Middle: In Defense of Israel

Share

Tomorrow, Benjamin Netanyahu, will be addressing the congress of the United States. It is unfortunate that many of the Democrats, including the President, Vice President and Secretary of State will be boycotting the address for political reasons. Undoubtedly, the subject of Netanyahu’s talk will be the ongoing nuclear talks with Iran. These negotiations started in February 2014 between the United Nations…
