Playing Politics Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act are getting exactly what they wanted. They have declared victory because of the decrease in health care costs. What they fail to mention is the reason there has been a decrease is because people can’t afford to use their insurance due to high out of pocket costs. In this election season it is imperative to remember those who voted for this disaster without having read the bill; those who demonized people who raised valid questions about access to care, costs and rationing; and those who cried racism when valid points were raised about how the quality of care would necessarily drop because there was never enough money to subsidize a substantial number of the 30 million newly insured people. Those on Medicare need to remember that over 700 million dollars was taken from money that would have been used for their care to set up the unwieldy bureaucracy that is the underpinning of Obamacare.

How the President Could Save the Democrats – and Himself

Even now, with the election only days away, President Obama has it in his power to save his Democratic Party from losing control of the U.S. Senate – and save his all-but-destroyed legacy as president. In one 15-minute speech, he can restore confidence in America's stagnant economy and send the stock market skyrocketing upward by several thousand points. Within minutes he can trigger a tidal wave of new hiring, reverse the flood of businesses taking their jobs and profits overseas, and renew America’s spirit of optimism and well-being. Mr. Obama can instantly restore worldwide confidence in America's global leadership and have ISIS and other enemies scurrying for cover, ready to replace their black flag of terror with a white flag of surrender. How? [more...]

U.S.-Israel Relationship in Crisis

The Obama administration's contemptible hostility towards Israel has descended into the proverbial cellar.  According to an October 28th article appearing in The Atlantic by Jeffrey Goldberg, a high-level Obama administration official has recently added "chickensh*t" to other derisive terms used in ad hominem verbal attacks on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, such as "recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and 'Aspergery.'" Prime Minister Netanyahu responded to the latest diatribe in his remarks to the Knesset on October 29th that "I am being attacked because I am willing to defend the State of Israel." [more...]

Vegas Oddsmaker Predicts GOP Landslide for Midterm Elections

I publicly made the prediction of a GOP landslide forming weeks ago on hundreds of radio shows and numerous popular conservative Web sites. Because of the Obamacare disaster (massive rate increases and millions of cancellation notices coming for middle class America), I predicted a historic loss for Obama and the Democrats. That was before Ebola (and Obama's mishandling of the healthcare crisis) became the biggest story in the news. How bad will the coming election results be for Obama and the Democrats? The GOP is on the cusp of a landslide similar to the one I predicted publicly in 2010. Back then, I predicted the GOP would win 50 to 60 Congressional seats. The experts said I was out of my mind. The GOP won 63 seats. [more...]

Sorry, Socialists and Progressives... Businesses Do Create Jobs

If you believe at least one public figure, corporations and businesses don't create jobs.  I'm sorry, socialists and progressives, but businesses do create jobs!  Please look at the empirical evidence, the economic data, the economic theory that supports a mountain of evidence to the contrary.  No government in the history of the world has ever created economic wealth. As I discuss in my new book, Renewing America and Its Heritage of Freedom: What Freedom-Loving Americans Can Do to Help, economic wealth, growth and prosperity all start in the private sector when individuals with initiative, hard work and sweat equity - and sometimes some outside capital from angels, friends and family, and investors - build new businesses.  These new businesses, in order to grow and to meet the needs of consumers and others, need lots of new workers.  In this process, new jobs are created, people get hired and wealth is created. [more...]

Who is Handling Our Ballots?

What if our elections were unionized, with ballots handled out of the sight of poll-watchers by members of an AFL-CIO union that is a major Democratic Party campaign contributor? Such unionization of voting is already the law in three states — Oregon, Washington State, and, beginning with this November's election, Colorado, where a close race might determine whether Republicans or Democrats control the U.S. Senate. In another 27 states that allow no-excuse absentee voting by mail, union members handle up to 25 percent of all ballots cast. These 27 states include eight this year where who wins could decide Senate control. The private handling of ballots by unionized letter carriers adds the risk that your vote never gets delivered. At least this final corruption might be deterred if election clerks e-mail or telephone those whose requested absentee ballots are not received. Any pattern of missing ballots might suggest which letter carriers failed to deliver absentee ballots, and this might help get such vote robbers fired and jailed. [more...]

Battling Polarization in Politics

In the San Francisco Bay Area, where trans-everything is popular, a new political movement is taking form: transpartisanship. From Van Jones, Ralph Nader, and Joan Blades on the left, to Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist and George Shultz on the right, advocates from both sides of the political divide are gathering in the Bay area, exploring ways to combine forces and break the polarization and demonization that gridlocks the political process. [more...]

Where in the World is Obama?

Where in the world is Obama? The President of the United States appears to be AWOL. Obama is so invisible, it’s likely no one would notice if he’d been kidnapped. The real question is, would the Secret Service even notice? It’s Fall. That means political campaign time. Congress is up for re-election. This is always when presidents are crisscrossing the nation campaigning full-time for their candidates. But something strange is happening this year. There’s no president in sight. Obama is so invisible, there are rumors he’s in the witness protection program. [more...]

Ray Rice Wants to Play Nice Again

The NFL has had quite a few controversial incidents this year, and a new development suggests that the worst of the NFL's legal issues is not quite over yet. Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is scheduled to have his appeal heard during the first week of November.  And reality is that the appeal could very well lead to Rice's reinstatement. Why? Well, because in 2011, the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement was established, which states that the league only has the right to suspend a player once per off-field, personal conduct violation.

'Exodus' Star Christian Bale Brands Moses as 'Schizophrenic' and 'Barbaric'

One of the most highly anticipated and ambitious faith-related films of modern times arrives in theaters this December. The movie, titled "Exodus: Gods and Kings," has the potential to become a massive box-office hit. While speaking to a group of reporters at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, Bale appeared to be talking about a different Moses than the venerated one of the Scriptures. "I think the man was likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life," Bale said. [more...]

What's More Toxic to America - Ebola or Obama?

No one knows yet how much damage Ebola can do to America. On the other hand, we have already experienced the damage, destruction and pain of President Barack Obama. Let's compare Ebola to Obama. Add it up. Ebola is a terrible threat. But so far, it is only a threat. Obama is toxic; he has had a devastating effect upon America’s economy, healthcare system, national interests and reputation across the globe. Ebola might give us a punch in gut. Obama could be fatal. [more...]

GOP Will Win a Big but Undeserved Victory

With eight days to go before these crucial midterm elections some things are already clear.  Oh, to be a fly on the wall at that first Senate GOP conference, when the doors are closed and the 54 newly sworn-in GOP senators sit down with each other for the first time to map out their 2015 agenda. That meeting - and what comes from it - will be more contentious and more divisive than any fights Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) have ever had.

There is No Voter Fraud... Honest

If you want to see someone on the progressive left blow a gasket, talk about voter fraud. They will all tell you that it doesn't exist or it's so small it's immeasurable. I say they can't see the forest for the trees! The hard part about voter fraud is, you have to prove the person knew what they were doing was illegal. Imagine hearing this at the poll: [more...]

Ebola Strategy Revealed

Americans should be very concerned about the potential for an Ebola epidemic, especially in light of the Obama Administration’s inaction to protect the American people! It is absolutely unconscionable that arguably the most powerful leader in the world has done absolutely nothing to protect the American people from further infiltration of the Ebola virus into the United States from abroad. Americans should be outraged that his stance has continued to be one of worldwide social justice instead of honoring his presidential oath. While the government's Ebola response is slammed, according to this article the President claimed that, “It was his job to make sure Americans were taken care of, he said he had a larger role.” What could be larger than doing his job to secure the borders and obey his oath of office? According to Obama, it’s "Making sure that Africans, particularly children and their families, are safe." Apparently, the President wants us to believe his intentions are noble when, in fact, they are political. [more...]

Tennessee School Board Slams Common Core

The Williamson County school board wants to make it clear: they don't like the Common Core national standards initiative. The Tennessean notes the original wording stated that the board "stands opposed to Common Core-derived standards and in favor of educational standards and decision-making being driven by local control of the education process." That wording was amended to read the board "stands in support of locally derived educational standards and decision making." [more...]

His Chickens are Coming Home to Roost

We have an election coming up and once again the president is doing damage control on the "smoking gun" issues to save his party's butt. The Bergdahl report is done, but it won't be released until after the election. Obamacare premiums - the new ones, the real ones - won't be published until after the election. His choice for Attorney General, interestingly enough, though he has one in mind, won't be released until after the election. Can we please explain to this president the real meaning of "transparency?" [more...]

"President Obama, You're Fired!"

The past few months have shown more than ever that America elected a campaigner instead of a commander. President Obama is all talk and no action. His passivity is sickening and frustrating. He doesn't even seem overwhelmed by his responsibilities as President – he seems disinterested in them. Granted, 2014 has been a year full of troubles and tribulations that he is incapable and unwilling to solve, but if President Obama were working in corporate America, he'd have been fired by now. The man has not kept many of his promises.  If someone hires you or me to do a job but after an allotted amount of time, the job we had been hired to do isn't done, then our employer should fire us. Be a man, Mr. President, and just do something for once. [more...]

Pondering the Wreckage from the Latest Gaza War

As President Obama proceeds with his courtship of "moderate Arab governments" for active roles in his anti-ISIS coalition, he is again ringing the changes on the long-disproved notion that a more hostile American posture towards Israel is needed in order to smooth the path towards ultimate peace in the Middle East. Again, President Obama and his team are screaming that Israel's government is poisoning the wells of diplomacy by building more housing for all of its citizens - Arabs Jews and others - in areas that the PLO insists have belonged exclusively to Arabs since time immemorial. Once again we are being told that surrender by Israel of its position on this and other disputed matters will win goodwill for Israel – that this goodwill will radiate in all directions, smoothing the way to solution of all the differences between Israel and its neighbors. In due course, as Israel surrenders her narrow Zionist vision in favor of grander possibilities, throughout the Arab world the grievances upon which ISIS feeds will be removed or vastly mitigated in the minds of all clear-thinking denizens of the region and the spirit of accommodation will reign.

Public Worry over Remote Threats

The breathless news coverage of the miniscule number of people in the United States that have so far contracted the Ebola virus has led to a typical irrational response in some quarters. For example, schools have been closed, and the public and thus some politicians support a travel ban of people from the affected West African countries, even though health professionals have said that this "solution" might make things worse. Despite such professionals repeating often that Ebola is inefficiently transmitted, that West Africa has a much lower level of general health care than does the United States, and that therefore the American problem is likely to be only contagion among the health workers tending to the very small number of victims rather than in the general population, many people are still nervous that they or their family will catch the virus. [more...]

Ebola Could Be Economic Catastrophe

The medical implications of Ebola are being covered by the news media every second of every day. But it's the economic implications that I fear are far more deadly. Ebola could turn into an unprecedented deathblow to the U.S. economy, even if very few Americans ever die from it. I might have been the first columnist to write of the danger for Ebola to cause catastrophic damage to the U.S. economy back on September 4th, predicting it could shut down commerce and cause a stock market crash.

Ebola, Obamacare, and the Freedom of Living in Peace and Security

As I discuss in my new book, Renewing America and Its Heritage of Freedom: What Freedom-Loving Americans Can Do to Help, there are 25 essential components of freedom necessary to have a completely free nation.  One of the 25 essential components is the freedom of living in peace and security.  Americans are not living in peace and security today, knowing that several major diseases might infect themselves and their family members, as well as knowing that their healthcare insurance premiums, co-payments, access to doctors and hospitals, and the availability of medications, procedures, and protocols are all threatened by Obamacare. [more...]

Obama Really Did Appoint a Political Beneficiary - Not a Doctor - as Ebola Czar

In the past, the White House had said a czar was not necessary, but now they have retracted that statement after being criticized that U.S. hospitals are not equipped to handle an epidemic such as this. The U.S. government has failed again and again to properly assess this situation and to make adequate and effective decisions that produce positive results in regards to the Ebola epidemic overseas.  Obama appears to be a casual observer and a good talker whose lack of action speaks volumes louder than his words for educated individuals. The man says the U.S. does not need an Ebola czar; but now that he has been forced to do his research, he is finally facing the facts and has finally caved in to the pressure by naming a political supporter of his as the Ebola czar.

Has Pres. Obama's Handling of the Ebola Crisis Finally Caused a GOP Wave for November?

Has the Obama Administration’s handling of the Ebola Crisis finally caused a GOP wave for the November elections? Has the President – again – done too little too late? Why did he – for the first time – cancel a fundraising trip? Was it to cope with the Ebola disaster? Or was it to play politics in an effort to save panic-stricken Democrat candidates? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS. [more...]

Hollywood Plans TV Series to Capitalize on Ebola Crisis

As anxiety over Ebola intensifies, some big names in Hollywood are looking to profit from the public angst. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a television series that weaves the deadly Ebola pathogen into its plot is soon to come.

The series will be an update of the 1994 book written by Richard Preston titled "The Hot Zone." Veteran film director Ridley Scott, best known for "Alien," "Blade Runner," "Thelma & Louise," "Gladiator," and the upcoming "Exodus Gods and Kings," is attached to the project along with Lynda Obst, producer of the film "Sleepless in Seattle." Scott will also soon be directing "Killing Jesus" for the National Geographic Channel, a project that will be based on Bill O’Reilly’s best-selling book of the same name. [more...]

Obama's Cloward-Piven Weapon of Mass Destruction

I am Barack Obama's classmate at Columbia University, Class of '83. We were taught a plan back then to collapse the U.S. economy and destroy this country. It was called "Cloward-Piven" (named after a husband and wife professor team at Columbia). This plan involved using spending, entitlements, debt and crisis after crisis to overwhelm the system, distract the citizens, and cause the collapse of America. At that point, the people would be on their knees begging for big government to save them from drowning. They'd willingly accept a socialist nanny state without argument or debate under duress. People agree to all kinds of terrible things while their lives and survival hangs in the balance. Panic causes bad decision-making. That's the key: panic and duress. With your job and income gone, or facing a massive 9-11-like terrorist attack, or devastating Ebola pandemic, the country is in a panic. "Cloward-Piven" counted on the citizenry making a very bad decision under duress - choosing the very group (government) that destroyed your life as your savior. [more...]

Why Have Marriage Rates Hit a New All-Time Low?

The percentage of U. S. adults who have never been married hit a new, all-time low.  Compare the numbers from 1960 with the latest available data in 2012.  Back in 1960, about 10% of adults over age 25 had never been married.  In 2012, in sharp contrast, about 20% of adults over the age of 25 had never been married.  That's an incredible doubling of over 25 never married individuals percentages. Can we expect this cultural trend to continue?  The answer is probably - unless there is a significant change in the American culture. What are possible causes of this dramatic shift away from marriage? Read more in my new book: Renewing America and Its Heritage of Freedom: What Freedom-Loving Americans Can Do to Help. [more...]

State Rep - Common Core Repeal a 'Matter of Time'

If you ask Ohio State Rep. Matt Huffman, the death of Common Core is not a question of if, but when. "People are saying we are being conspirators," Huffman said. "We are not, we are just looking at facts." He added, "We need to realize we are a very diverse country. Things are not going to be the same in Van Wert as they are in Miami, Florida." [Watch the video here...]

Ebola is Everyone's Problem

Worrying and fear are crippling and useless states of thinking and are destructive, especially in situations such as the Ebola outbreak. What is required in this health crisis is action. Everyone must act, not just officials in charge of stopping this disease from spreading. We must each be responsible for our own health and be mindful of our daily actions. That’s one reason why the virus has gotten so severe. No one was educated about the disease, and people weren’t doing anything about it for the longest time. If the Ebola virus had been treated as a business problem, it would already be solved and thousands saved from suffering. Unfortunately, when money is not involved and no one benefits (let alone risks their own life) it is harder to find ways to motivate people to solve problems that they do not consider their own; but this problem is everyone’s problem.
