Leadership

America is in danger … We need a real American leader

This is just a rant. I’m saddened about the direction America is being taken. I sometimes wonder where have all the men gone. I mean real men like General Douglas MacArthur and other great generals and patriots who had the ability to recognize danger to the United States and wouldn’t hesitate to act against that danger. America’s homeland has been attacked by Muslim terrorists, albeit it’s alleged the U.S. government was at the very least complicit in that, but nonetheless the result of the tragic events of 9/11/2001 led us into war with Afghanistan and Iraq.  We’ve accomplished little. The perpetrators […]

Mark Levin wants John Boehner and the Republican Leadership Removed M

Most of you know I’m no fan of John Boehner.  It was an epic failure by the House Republicans when they voted him back in as Speaker this past January.  The Republicans once again let an opportunity get away from them to turn this thing around and make a difference.  Today I was listening to Sean Hannity on the radio and he was interviewing John Boehner.  Nothing Boehner said inspired or gave me hope as a conservative.  He is the poster child for the establishment and as long as he remains as Speaker of the House conservatism will suffer.  Today […]

Everyone is saying it – the politicians, the media, the economists, the Fed, the CBO, the IMF. So it must be true. Sure, the Republicans and Democrats may make a deal and save the day. But these guys never agree and, meanwhile, economic doomsday – January 1st – is just weeks away. What do […]

Obama's "Chief" Problem

One can only speculate why Obama chose West Point to as his podium for his Afghanistan speech. Perhaps he thought it would give him that “Commander in Chief” look. The cadets didn’t seem to see him all that chiefly. Then again why would they. The military have laid everything on the line; a line which seems to move with the whims of Washington. Barak has blamed, delayed, and all but talked the war issue to death. What he did not do in the past months nor again last evening was instill confidence that he can be “Chief”. A brief look […]
