Whom to blame?

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Over the past 5 years this country has endured some of the most outrageous, incompetent, racially divisive, unbelievably stupid and downright incomprehensible actions that even the most cynical among us could ever have imagined.

Anti-semitic ancient evil

Anti-Semitic attitudes and policies have been a sad part of Christendom since the Roman church superseded the Roman Empire. Who can forget The Merchant of Venice? Or The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion? (That last will bear mention later.) Or the negligent policies of the former Allied Powers of the First World War, that led to the ugliest part of the Second? But anti-Semitic policy did not start with Christendom. It did not even start with the Roman Empire. Instead, ancient Jewish chroniclers documented episodes of anti-Semitic policy during the Persian Empire.

Lois Lerner not sorry?

The IRS scandal gained a new face - in Congress.

This morning, Politico released their “exclusive” with Lois Lerner. (See also these secondary reports at The Daily Caller and from UPI.) She once served as Director for Tax-exempt Organizations at the IRS. While so serving she selectively applied the law. Tax collectors have done this since the first kings and emperors formed the first tax agencies. And she puffs herself up with pride for this.

Congress, are you thinking?

Seal of the Islamic State. Is Obama their secret ally, sowing complacency to give this State time to build?

The people of America, Republicans, Independents and yes, even Democrats once again have been placed in future danger by this renegade government.  Yesterday the House of Representatives and the United States Senate voted to once again fund and arm terrorists who will in very short order, turn those weapons on Americans.

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.
