#NeverTrump Selective Outrage — and Circumvention

“Donald J Trump may not be the most subtle, but he may just be like Andrew Jackson, the kind of person we need to break through and actually get the system to work again. And this, I would argue, is a much better gamble for the future than continuing with the current system, the current […]

“Mississippi Strategy” Makes Its Way to Georgia House Race

It appears that what recently happened in the Mississippi Senate run-off race — the GOP Establishment appearing to ask Democrats to vote for the Establishment candidate in the GOP primary as a means of knocking out a more conservative GOP candidate — is now heading to my home State and my own congressional district: Jody Hice, […]

Democrats Push Bill to Begin Overriding SCOTUS Contraception Decision

#Election2012: Obama Handily Wins Re-Election, and the GOP Must Change to Win Nationally; More Confirmations

As of Wednesday, November 7, the electoral count (FoxNews) stands at 303 – 206 in Obama’s favor, with only Florida having yet to complete their tallies. Aside from being shocked (I allowed myself to succumb to the eccentricities of the Morris/Rove/Barone/Ulsterman-WHI “Romeny’s-going-to-win-by-a-landslide” contingent), the bottom line is that Team Obama simply had a better ground […]

CBSAtlanta.com Video on Judge Malihi’s Obama Subpoena

As I’ve recently posted, I still don’t think that Obama will be making a personal appearance in front of Judge Malihi at any time from January 26, 2012 or forward, and I don’t think there’s really a need for that to occur anyway. I personally agree with attorney Van Irion and his pursuit of this […]
