Washington insiders constantly tell us that if we cut the federal government’s domestic budget, Armageddon will come to America. But is there really nothing that can be cut? For example, the Inspector General for the Social Security Administration said that the SSA paid $1.111 million to dead people, and the government also made $125 billion in improper payments. The national operating debt stands over $18 trillion, and that does not include unfunded liabilities. Former Reagan economist Professor Laurence Kotlikoff states that the amount of unfunded liabilities exceeds $200 trillion. If Beltway insiders think the sequester was Armageddon, one can only think...Read More

With the self-imposed March 31 deadline more attention needs to be given to what is going on with the negotiations related to Iran’s nuclear program. Reports have stated that the deal would limit Iran’s nuclear activity for at least 10 years but, eventually ease restrictions on potential weapon programs. The “sunset clause” is one of the main causes for concern but, the deal would also effectively reverse United Nations Security Council Resolution 1696 demanding that the Iranians cease all nuclear activities and allow a sworn enemy of the United States to continue on the path to gaining nuclear weapons.

If a justice wants to play a roll in public policy, they are in the wrong branch...Read More
Last week the History Channel ran a three part, six hour, miniseries entitled “Sons of Liberty” the show sometimes took factual departures, but nevertheless it was an entertaining take on the early part of the Revolution.

Today we have...Read More
One of the lessons the Western World learned before, during, and after World War II was that appeasing the enemy does not deter the enemy. However, it seems that some Western leaders have forgotten the lessons of the 1930s, and are repeating the same mistakes that people like Neville Chamberlain made. There are striking similarities between Adolf Hitler and the terrorists and their state sponsors, such as Iran. Furthermore, like the British and French who refused to criticize Hitler’s extremism, the administration has lacked will to say “radical Islam.” It appears that the 1930s are rearing their ugly head....Read More
