Why Be an American Ally?


As the debate begins on allowing 100,000 Syrian refugees into the country, we might do well to remember how we treated those who “bonded with us,”  fought and died for America’s interests. Today both the FBI director and Homeland Security secretary have volunteered that we do not have a vetting system that is reliable.  The […]

Seeing through the fog


There were two excellent articles appearing in the Sunday newspapers.  One was an article by Francis Wilkinson writing for Bloomberg View and the second by Kevin Carey written for the Sunday New York Times. In the Wilkinson’s column, the question posed was, “If the Tea Party is dying, why is Trump winning?” According to the […]

ISIS Plots as the President Taunts


You may recall November 13 when President Obama reported that ISIS was contained and then, within hours ISIS blew up seven Paris sites that killed and injured over 200 individuals. The president has again opened up his divisive rhetoric with those who oppose bringing thousands of Syrian refugees to America, many who could be ISIS […]

Only in America


Later this month the United Nations Climate Change conference will get underway in Paris.  President Obama certainly will be heralded as a great visionary with his cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline.  Although two State Department studies concluded there was no negative environmental impact, the president alone killed the deal which would have employed 30,000 […]

Making Matters Worse


If you just arrived from Mars, you might want to know how things are going in Oklahoma.  On what fronts? During the good times, with the price of crude above $100 a barrel, things were great.

More Trouble Ahead


The Drudge Report carried an article entitled, “Gore:  Global Warming making People Dumber.”  Left-wing advocacy website Think Progress reported on a new study by the Harvard School of Public Health claims “Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has a direct and negative impact on human cognition and decision making.” Former Vice President Al Gore was quick to join […]

Education Needs Reform, Too


The Wall Street Journal recently carried an article by Christopher DeMuth entitled, “The Decline and Fall of Congress.” One point he makes that tells the difference in how the Democrats get their way and Republicans don’t is the statement, “Group cohesion comes naturally to the Democrats, whose party has been a coalition of government-dependent interest […]

Inside Out


The week began with more pessimistic news concerning America’s labor participation rate.  Don’t get caught in believing the economy is improving because it’s not.  Just 62.4 percent of civilian Americans 16 and older were working or looking for work.  This has caused the jobless rate to drop to 5.1 percent. But, who would not count […]

Here to Stay Because We Need Him


The New York Times reported that Donald Trump sees a major collapse in the Republican campaign and a depression for the television industry should he prematurely exit the presidential race. According to Mr. Trump, a presidential campaign without him would be so “boring” that no one would watch.  He also said, “I have made Fox […]

A New Dawn in America


Maybe the visit of Pope Francis brought good luck to America.  While he was in Philadelphia, House Speaker John Boehner announced his resignation from Congress at the end of October. As the New York Times reported, a sense of dread and deep uncertainty had descended over the Capitol.  The president, who had done such an […]
