A Few Things of Note This Week

Justice Kavanaugh I have been closely watching the situation surrounding the New York Times and Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  It has developed into a food fight between the reporters and the editors, but one thing remains very apparent.  The report left out some very critical details.  They failed to mention that the person who was supposedly… Continue reading A Few Things of Note This Week

What Happened to Congress

When I first started working in Washington in 1977 it was a very different place.  I was a young staffer working for a freshman Republican from Utah, Orrin. G. Hatch.  He was full of fire and was considered an outsider at that time because he was a Reaganite.  That made him very conservative for the time. The makeup… Continue reading What Happened to Congress

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FACING OUR NATION IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US AND IT IS THE NATIONAL DEFICIT

Today I read an article where 27 Blue Dog Democrats indicated they would support a Balanced Budget Amendment. Nothing could be more music to my ears. The deficit is the single most important issue facing this nation and nobody seems willing to pay attention to it spiraling out of control. We are now $22 trillion… Continue reading THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FACING OUR NATION IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US AND IT IS THE NATIONAL DEFICIT

America is Great and Always Will Be Great

There seems to be a growing sense among the left in this nation that not only is America not great now but never was great. This week former Attorney General Eric Holder appeared on MSNBC this past Wednesday evening and during an interview and made some comments that baffle me. His comment came in response… Continue reading America is Great and Always Will Be Great

The New Leadership of the Democrats in the House

This week the House was embroiled in the controversy over Cong. Omar and her blatantly anti-Semitic statements. It was so bad that a resolution was drafted condemning anti-Semitism and was designed to show that Democrats are not anti-Israel or anti-Semitic. But that would mean taking on one of the freshman firebrands that have dominated the… Continue reading The New Leadership of the Democrats in the House

Odd and Ends in the Political Arena Today

Hillary Clinton Is she in or is she out? I have maintained that Hillary Clinton still feels she won the last elections and is entitled to run again. She covets the Presidency and this week she seemed to say that she would not run only to walk that comment back a day later and make it clear… Continue reading Odd and Ends in the Political Arena Today
