Hillary Clinton and the Need for “The Untouchables”

In the movie The Untouchables, FBI prohibition officer Eliot Ness played by Kevin Costner had to form an autonomous squad of agents who could pursue Al Capone without risk of being corrupted. This dramatized retelling of real events highlights a time in law enforcement history when such things were required, but we’re well beyond the need

FYI: David Cameron Didn’t Necessarily Resign

Following the “Brexit” vote to leave the European Union, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced that he would be stepping down following a transition period of a few months. He expects to have a new leader announced in October before the Conservative party’s conference. Whether he intends to step down or not, the Brexit loss

When Trump Loses, He’ll Blame Me. And You.

A comprehensive look back at Donald Trump’s various failures in his business and personal life tell us one thing: he’s always a victim. It’s always someone else’s fault. It’s always a bad circumstance, a raw deal, or a poor decision by others (never him) that led to dozens of major disasters throughout his life. The same

Trump v. Hillary is About Who We Fear Less. Sad!

Now that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the presumptive nominees of the two major political parties, America is pretty much screwed. I try to avoid vulgarities in my articles, but there’s really no polite way to put it. Americans are going to be asked to choose between someone who is certain to make bad

I Would Support Ben Sasse as a Third Party Candidate

Senator Ben Sasse is a conservative. He’s a Christian. He’s not part of the Republican Establishment and he was one of the first DC politicians to speak out about and even directly call out Donald Trump about his liberal and/or ludicrous policy proposals. For these reasons alone, conservatives should consider supporting him.

Reconstituting America

When considering the things that have made America the most prosperous and powerful nation in the history of the planet, there are many options. Some would say it’s the people and our embrace (albeit reluctant at times) of diversity that built this nation of immigrants. Others might point to serendipity; we are rich with natural

Planned Parenthood Email Shows Cruz Terrifies Them

There’s a reason that the Pro-Life movement hasn’t seen very much action at the national level. It doesn’t matter whether a Republican or Democrat sits in the White House. It doesn’t matter which party controls Congress. The only thing that can shake things up and shift the power in the battle against abortion and Planned

The Ted Cruz Simple Flat Tax Explained in 77 Seconds

For all of the good that the anti-establishment insurgent candidates, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, have done to change the conversation and turn the country in a different direction rather than the status quo political talking points normally associated with Presidential elections, one thing that hasn’t been discussed nearly enough is the tax code. It’s
