Race, Sherrod, and Victimhood

Racial issues ought to be receding in America. Yet they have once again intruded onto the national consciousness. It all started [at least the latest round] when the NAACP passed a resolution calling on the Tea Party to excise the racists in their midst. No real evidence was presented that racism was a major problem within the movement, but that apparently was beside the point. I commented on this in my July 14 post, if you want to review it….

Lindsey Graham & the Liberal Ethos

The Senate Judiciary Committee just voted for the Elena Kagan nomination for the Supreme Court to go before the full Senate. Every Democrat on the committee voted in favor of her; every Republican—except one—voted against. That one was Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. I met Sen. Graham when he was still a congressman back in 2000. At the time, I was interviewing all the congressmen who had taken on the responsibility as House Managers to get the Senate to vote… Read more »

The Real Victim of Racism

So the NAACP has voted to condemn the Tea Party for its racism? Where did they find that racism? Some will point to the infamous “walk” by Democratic leaders from their House office building to the Capitol when some of them claimed to hear racist remarks from the crowd—remarks that no one else heard, that were never picked up by any microphone or in any video. When you want to believe something, you just will, regardless of the facts. Deroy… Read more »

Sedition? Are You Serious?

I suppose I should be used to this by now, but it’s hard not to be outraged. Remember when disagreeing with the government was a sign of real patriotism—you know, back in the bad old Bush years? At that time, we were told continually by the Democrats and the media that dissent was a cornerstone of American liberty. Well, there’s a whole lot of dissent going on out there right now. It started as a trickle, became a shocker with… Read more »

Immigration, Terror, & the Coming Elections

The primary reason for civil government is to protect the people of a nation. That’s one reason why the illegal immigration issue is so important. Yet what is our president doing about it? It’s almost as if he wears blinders. Well, he does actually—they’re the result of his ideology. There’s also the threat from Iran, which, during the campaign, candidate Obama called a “tiny” nation that we shouldn’t worry about. Isn’t it time he started worrying? If he does, he… Read more »

Last Tuesday's Elections

I’ve waited a few days before commenting on Tuesday’s elections. The pundits are still punditing, and they disagree on the significance of what took place. Now that’s a surprise. I don’t know if I qualify as an official pundit or not—not sure I really want the title—but I would like to offer some thoughts on what transpired. The obvious loser, a point on which all agree, was Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter. The 80-year-old Specter [on the left] lost the Democratic… Read more »

More on Holder, Radical Islam, and Profiling

Yesterday, I wrote about Eric Holder’s amazing confession: he never even read the Arizona illegal immigration bill that he was so bitterly criticizing. After writing it, this very appropriate cartoon surfaced, so it’s worth sharing. Even a fictional conversation can contain a lot of truth. Actually, I believe Holder has read the Constitution; he just has a different take on it—that it should be ignored. Incidentally, it’s now a matter of record that Janet Napolitano, director of Homeland Security, former… Read more »
