Gov. Christie, who are you?

Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?

Dear Governor Christie: the scope and intent of this open letter is not meant to disparage you unfairly.  But…in respect to all which has occurred during your tenure, what you have done and not done, things you have said and not said, these two questions beg for answers:

Muslim invasion coming

The Second Amendment guarantees our right to bear arms - and no lesser jurisdiction can interfere with that.

Many active supporters of the 2nd Amendment have spent endless hours gathering information on the benefits of an armed population.  They have presented incalculable amounts of data which prove beyond any doubt that people are safer if law-abiding citizens are not prevented from protecting themselves and their families from the many dregs of human debris which stalk our society.

IRS scandal: e-mails do exist

The IRS scandal made the news again yesterday. Now the IRS admits the “missing” e-mails still exist, and Lois Lerner did not lose them forever as she said. But the IRS now makes another excuse for not giving those e-mails to a judge. And as ever, no one looks at the worst part of the IRS scandal: whether any branch of government can investigate itself.

One talent fatalist

Parable of the Talents

As someone who is considered to be a grassroots activist, I often find myself talking “politics” with many who are interested just for the sake of conversation. It can be a frustrating calling when those who agree philosophically and morally remain apathetic. These represent a large percentage of the population that claim to have conservative values and often identify themselves as Christians.

The fire starter

Fire fighters

The arsonist or fire starter, the most vile of all creatures who dwell on this planet, come in two basic forms.

Lois Lerner: she-wolf

Lois Lerner, former head of the Exempt Organizations Division of the IRS, is every taxpayer’s nightmare of a tax agent. Like Zacchaeus, at least before Jesus passed through Jericho, she made herself one of the most despised women in America. She stands accused, in fact, of “showing the fig” (Greek sycophanteo I defraud by accusing falsely) as they used to call it in Zacchaeus’ day. In this case, Lois Lerner trumped-up evidence of wrongdoing or fatally irregular activity, in this case to deny tax-exempt status, or delay a finding until it no longer mattered.

Power of One

Power of One can beat RINOs

I continue to wrestle with the Gallup Poll reporti regarding the most liberal and the most conservative states in the Union. The poll stated that after the 2012 presidential election, the nation was 38% conservative as opposed to 23% liberal with the balance attributed mostly to moderates. The breakdown in New Jersey, notorious for being “blue” and #9 on Gallup’s 10 most liberal states list, is more than interesting. According to Gallup, the Garden State is 27.1% liberal and 37.6% moderate, which leaves 35.3% of the state conservative. The stats for Massachusetts, another notorious blue state and number 3 on Gallup’s most liberal list, is 38.1% moderate, 30.2% liberal and 31.7% conservative. The poll stats for these two states indicate that the liberals with their lower percentage rates dominate the conservatives. In other words, the minority is dominating the majority.

Thad Cochran will lose anyway

Thad Cochran

Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) can’t win the general election. His campaign did many disgusting and possibly illegal things. But suppose he wins the legal battles to come? Suppose no judge or jury can or will convict him or his campaign? He still can’t win. Because he laid himself wide-open to a common Democratic attack. So CNAV repeats: he will wind up hoist by his own petard.

Thad Cochran: specious story

Thad Cochran

The campaign staff of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss) vigorously deny buying votes with direct cash payments. But the key witness in this affair has four text messages that speak to such payments. Yesterday the chief spokesman for the Thad Cochran campaign tried to explain them away. And his explanations are worse than specious.

Thad Cochran: more evidence

Ballot box. The Electoral College compact relies on stuffing this.

Evidence continues to mount against Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). Yesterday a witness came forward and charged that Thad Cochran paid voters to vote in the Republican runoff. If this charge holds, then Thad Cochran could lose the nomination by default. He might also face expulsion from the United States Senate. Either way, he would find himself hoist by his own petard.
