2000 Report On The Trillion-Dollar Bank Shakedown

Back in 2000, Howard Husok wrote in the City-Journal about how the Clinton Presidency and the left-wing groups created a shake down of banks.  It is a thorough read and as you read it you realize how the housing bubble and collapse came to be.  Here is the lead in with link to read more … Continue reading

If You Make $50,000 Per Year, You Pay…. Debunked

This photo has made the rounds on social media for a couple years and I was requested to research it. Our tax system is too convoluted to make simplistic assertions such as this.  Or, perhaps since it is so convoluted one can make assertions such as this.  The dates listed at the bottom of the … Continue reading

Politics of Race, part 2 – Historical Perspective of Republicans and Democrats

After 360,000 Union soldiers died in winning the Civil War, under the leadership of the first Republican President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, the country was finally poised to pass legislation regarding the abolition of slavery.  This was accomplished with the ratifying of the 13th Amendment with 100% Republican support against a large majority … Continue reading

Runaway Slave

I recently watched the movie Runaway Slave as it is now available to watch On Demand by many cable providers.  It is an inspirational movie about C.L. Bryant’s journey from former NAACP local chapter president to Tea Party participant, and his journey across America to find others who are running from the government plantation of entitlements.  Along … Continue reading

Now Dismantling Obama’s Talking Points

“Acts of Terror”.  We will start at the end where some are going to focus on the debate of language.  You can read the President’s transcript from his speech in the Rose Garden where he referred in generalities to “acts of terror.”  I strongly suggest reading the transcript in context of everything else coming from the … Continue reading

Dismantling Biden’s VP Debate Talking Points

Where to begin? Health care and religious freedom.  VP Joe Biden stated, “With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has … Continue reading

Politics of Race, part 1 – Slavery

The United States of America was founded on the belief that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. The entire world was guilty of enslaving their own and others for over 4,000 years (and that’s … Continue reading

Sorting Through the Politics of Labeling

(Previous posted, but has been edited and reposted with additional information) Fascism.  Nazism.  Communism.  Liberalism.  Conservatism.  Socialism.  Marxism.  Capitalism.  Corporatism.  Statism.  Libertarianism.  Despotism.  Progressivism. How does one navigate through all of the overlapping meanings? George W. Bush was called a fascist and compared to Hitler.  The comparisons were absurd, just as they are for Barrack … Continue reading

Founding Fathers, Debt, and Bubbles

Barack Obama and the main stream media at some point in this election will attempt again to change the discussion from the perils of the public debt to one of income inequality (which we earlier refuted to be a bogus argument).  The public debt is the greatest danger we face today.  It stands at a … Continue reading

Politics of Race – Part 3, The Narrative

What is “the narrative”? The narrative is how some stories garner national media attention while others do not.  It is how similar stories are covered differently depending on the possible political ramifications.  Sometimes, it is simply comical as it was when the media reported that Mitt Romney once moved hauling his pet dog on top … Continue reading
