Because of the recent independence referendum in Scotland, secession is all the rage. Both in Europe and even here in the United States. With that subject in mind, the Reuters news agency commissioned a poll and found that one of four Americans would be open to secession. One in four.

During the 2012 presidential election, 71% of Hispanic-American voters supported Obama over Mitt Romney. They are now having buyer's remorse because they believe he is stabbing them in the back by doing his job as a responsible American and president. They should cut him some slack and take him at his word when he stresses that he is not acting in the best interest of our nation.

While most of the mainstream media understandably turned a blind eye to an odd meltdown from the editorial page editor of the paper which gives many of them their daily marching orders, the rest of us should take note.

Chemical weapons are being used in Syria, Iran is on the verge of developing nuclear weapons, radical Islam is on the march in much of the world, American cities such as Chicago resemble a war zone, our health-care system is on the verge of collapse...

Much of the liberal mainstream media is now in a complete meltdown because a rodeo clown wore a mask of President Obama and “disrespected” him during a show at the Missouri State Fair.

Message to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus: You are right to complain about the upcoming "Canonize Hillary Clinton" media events on NBC and CNN. You are wrong to address your complaints to the heads of those networks.

Rush Limbaugh -- the most powerful talk-show host in America -- just rightly called out Fox News for telling him to avoid talking about immigration. Why would the most fair and balanced television news source do this?

If you are a conservative and someone who believes in the foundation of traditional values, then it’s time to face a sad truth -- the Republican Party of 2013 is all but useless to you.

There are at the moment a number of exaggerated, even breathless comparisons between President Obama's Benghazi/IRS/Associated Press controversies and President Nixon's Watergate scandal in 1973.

For the last twenty years or so, first as a Republican, and of late as an independent conservative, I have been imploring the GOP to reach out in more meaningful ways to Hispanic and minority-America.

President Obama knows for a fact what many in the Republican Party — especially its "leadership" — fail to understand or acknowledge:

If my email in-box is any indication, the Obama White House and its allies may have bitten off much more than they can chew as they look to weaken or abolish the Second Amendment to the Constitution and our right to bear arms.

News flash for conservatives, Christians, libertarians or anyone in America who embraces traditional values, the rule of law, common sense, basic math, a more secure nation or politicians who put you and your family first: You have lost or are losing across the board. Period.

The quality of life often comes down to one moment, one opportunity, one roll of the dice or one decision to draw a line in the sand and scream "No more."

With many of the polls and much of the momentum trending for Mitt Romney, much of the mainstream media is in full-panic mode as they work overtime to tilt the "news" in favor of Barack Obama.

Posted October 09, 2012

As much of the far-left mainstream media continues to panic over Mr. Obama’s abject failure of a first debate, they deliberately avoid doing their jobs and reporting the real reason for his totally expected performance.
