So who is Kamala Harris, the woman who has risen to the top of the polls after the first Democratic presidential debate and why the sudden popularity?
The simple answer is that she is attractive and managed to knock the, up to that point, frontrunner Biden off his game by insinuating that he is a racist for his previous stand against bussing. The media loved it and played the clip over, and over, and over.
Before the debate, few really knew who the junior senator from California was, except the small percentage of voters who follow politics. After the debate, few still don’t know much about her — much less where she stands on the important issues — other than that well-worn news clip. Continue reading “Kamala the Khameleon”
The nation can use a holiday, a holiday from the bickering that now characterizes our political debates in the halls of Congress or what passes as “news.” Even our social media is awash in vitriol.
As we pause to enjoy time with family and friends, it is more important that ever to remember the events that led to the holiday: the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It’s also important to remember the bravery and sacrifice made by the men who willingly put their lives on the line to sign it and those who gave their lives to defend it.
The British had increasingly oppressed the colonists. As the tensions grew, the crown sent a standing army to North America to strengthen its control. Furthermore, it ruled Continue reading “A Warning about Freedom from the Founders”
President Trump has been playing a high stakes game of poker with Democrat over the issue of illegal immigration.
After going several rounds with Democrats that included various concessions, he went “all-in,” by announcing that there would be raids to pick up the lawbreakers. These are to round up people who have had their cases adjudicated and received a final order of removal. They have been instructed to contact their local ICE office and report with their families for deportation.
Far from being inhuman, these gate-crashers have been given time to get the things together they accumulated here while on what amounts to an unauthorized extended vacation. They get free transportation home in air conditioned comfort with meals and drinks served along the way, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers — a far cry from how they arrived! Instead of complying with the order, they simply dared authorities to come and get them. Continue reading “The President’s High-Stakes Poker Game on Illegal Immigration”
Maybe it’s time we make bank robbery legal, or at the very least, stop punishing those who are caught committing these robberies in certain circumstances. Let’s agree that you can rob a bank, but only if you need the money and, this next part is really important, you have to bring a child with you. If those two criteria are met, then you will be released without bail if you promise that you will return in three or four years for a court date. Should you fail to return, we will not pursue you. Therefore, you can go on about your life and you are free to enjoy your ill-gotten gains as if nothing illegal happened.
Should we pass such a law, will there be more bank robberies? You can bet your life on it! Bank robberies would skyrocket and banks would eventually fail.
Should we make these aforementioned bank robberies legal or fail to prosecute, will children be put in harms way? Of course. If one doesn’t have a child, one can simply borrow, rent or abduct one for the purpose of the robbery.
If that sounds insane, what about our immigration law? Just come across the border with a child in tow, and if you get caught, say you need political asylum. Continue reading “Let’s Make Bank Robbery Legal (Democrat Immigration Fix as Idiotic)”
I must admit, when I first heard of Sophie A. Lewis, I thought she was a cleaver hoax invented by a conservative blogger designed to show us just how vacuous a feminist philosopher can be. Ms. Lewis has been described as feminist uterine geography theorist and cyborg ecologist. Please!
A newly minted Ph.D, educated in England, now living in Philadelphia, her academic interests include cyborg theory, Marxist feminism, queer environmental humanities and social reproduction i.e. abortion and paid surrogacy. She refers to a woman with child as a “gestator.” Though one is hard-pressed to make sense of her literary ramblings in a variety of publicans, The New York Times took her seriously enough to allow a recent op-ed on British feminists who are hostile to transgenders taking over their space.
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/07/opinion/terf-trans-women-britain.html Therefore, one must assume this person, who at first seemed a poor caricature, in print and on YouTube, must be for real.
It’s her latest tirade against efforts to limit abortions in this country that takes this debate where few politicians are willing to go

What’s a president to do about the crisis on our southern border? It’s hard enough fighting a political party that owes its very existence to illegal immigration and will provide nothing to stop the flow through our border with Mexico. However, it’s members of Trump’s own party who are pulling the rug out from under him, again.
Democrats in the House refuse to pass the laws that are needed to immediately deport those streaming into our country from Central America. They refuse to give up the money for a border barrier or any kind of meaningful security. They refuse to provide the money for additional detention facilities or even humanitarian aid to the illegal border crossers. For Democrats, nothing will do other than simply releasing these gate crashers into our country.
So Trump has attempted to use the laws at his disposal to stop the flow himself. Unfortunately, it’s his own party that is cutting him off at the knees. Continue reading “Guess Who Is Pulling the Rug out from under Trump, again”
It’s been over four decades since Roe v. Wade and the companion case, Doe v Bolton, the Supreme Court decisions that made abortion legal in all 50 states for any reason, through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy. Yet it remains unsettled. Why?
Roe was a case based on legal quicksand. In 1973, the majority on the high court found a new constitutional right hiding in the “penumbra of the Bill of Rights.” For the uninitiated, a penumbra is the secondary shadow the moon cast on the earth during a solar eclipse. In other words, the Supreme Court made it up. So if the right to abortion can be found lurking around in the secondary shadows of the Bill of Rights, how many more are lurking around out there? Scary isn’t it?
The Roe decision has troubled many of our greatest legal minds on both the right and the left. Shortly before his retirement in 1986, Chief Justice Warren Burger, who joined Harry Blackmun in that decision, suggested that Roe be “reexamined.” Continue reading “The Issue that Divides the Nation”
