A trial is underway in South Bend, IN, regarding charges filed against 2 Democrat operatives from St. Joseph County alleging that these 2 were involved in forging dozens of signatures on the ballot petitions supporting Barak Obama in the 2008 Presidential primaries. The petitions were required to allow Obama to be included on the ballots. [...]

In roughly 37 days we Americans will once again be called upon to determine who will lead our republic. The President is our visible presence to the world, the chief executive of the operating agencies of our government, the commander-in-chief of our military and, unique in our system of government, the sole person in one [...]
(Bumped due to a publishing delay and to fix video issues.) Well, the Democratic National Committee Convention of 2012 is in the history books and, as expected, Barak Obama is the nominee for President. That was hardly a surprise. What was very surprising was the matter of the Democratic Party Platform and the floor vote [...]
Let’s have a look at the facts, shall we? $800 billion, roughly, in that “stimulus” package they forced through and what do we have to show for it? Higher unemployment than they predicted we’d have if we’d done nothing at all. This administration’s policies have not worked, they’ve made the economy worse, and they will [...]
This story was from a while ago, during the Chick-fil-A dustup, but I saw a prime example of something I feel isn’t handled with enough care by our colleagues in the news media. The story was reporting on how social media can tend to skew your perception of the world. Author Gregory Ferenstein had been [...]
There’s been a lot going on over a Chateux HoodaThunk? lately and it’s been seriously cutting into my blogging time. That doesn’t mean I’m not following the news, of course, and unless you’ve been actively trying to avoid it, you are as aware of the ridiculous commentary of Missouri Rep. Todd Akin as I am. [...]
The ongoing game of political chicken the Democrats are playing by using the looming threat of the massive, mandated budget cuts (a.k.a. “sequestration”) revolves around the Dem’s insistence that taxes be raised on the top 2% of earners in the US. Yes, that’s the “fair share” argument that never seems to address how it’s fair [...]
Disarming law-abiding citizens still wrong and meeting the standard of effectiveness in self-defense.
(Apologies if this seems late. I attempted to post this 2 days ago and had a snafu at HoodaThunk? so it had to be re-created.) In the wake of the shootings in Aurora, CO, many of the usual advocates for increased gun restrictions – and, let’s be honest, the outright ban on private ownership of [...]
( #didntbuildthat ) Once again, Obama has shown why he uses a teleprompter for virtually every exchange he has in public. When he starts to speak off the cuff, he just can’t hide his true feelings. At a speech in Roanoke, VA Obama had this to say about business owners – all business owners: …if [...]
If the “individual mandate” is only constitutional as a tax, why is Obama trying to push the meme that it’s not?
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Question: if the President finds that he is in the midst of undertaking an action that has been [...]
