On Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush took his most definitive step yet toward running for president, announcing plans to "actively explore" a campaign and form a new political operation allowing him to raise money for like-minded Republicans. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)

Jeb Bush ... Really? We can't do better?

This idea of Bush, Clinton, Bush, (placeholder), Clinton, Bush is dangerous. The idea of "dynasties" running our country is the antithesis of what our country was founded on. Published December 16, 2014

Liberal Bully of the Week: Sen. Dianne Feinstein

Remember how Democrats and their media pals told you Benghazi was "old news" five minutes after it happened, and only right-wing Fox News fans still cared about what actually happened? Well, now they're saying the hottest story in town is a report by Senate Democrats on CIA interrogations that happened over 10 years ago. Some old news is a lot fresher than other old news.

First, show me al Qaeda's intel report

Just when you thought President Obama and the demo-rats couldn't sink any lower, nor find another way to blame it on Bush, comes word of a new intelligence report critical of the torture and other activities claimed to have been committed by the CIA under the Bush administration.

Liberal Bully of the Week: The nanny state

A week after a grand jury in Missouri decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, a grand jury in Staten Island decided not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner.

The question of race and what to do about it

This week, President Obama had his big race summit at the White House with tax cheat and race hustler Al Sharpton, a man who's done nothing but make things worse in this country, and who certainly made things much worse in the current racial crisis. Published December 3, 2014

Liberal Bully of the Week: Emperor Obama

To quote the band Styx from the classic 1977 song "Come Sail Away": "I tried Oh Lord I tried to carry on ..." to not give the "Bully Award" to Barack Obama once again. However, I had no choice. President Obama has taken bullying to a whole new level not seen since maybe Hugo Chavez (another liberal darling). Published November 23, 2014

Slumlords rejoice: 'Amnesty' Obama to the rescue

Amnesty may be good for growth of slumlords and those who take advantage of the poor and weak. But this most certainly will not bring growth for the average middle class American who will be paying the bill. Published November 19, 2014

November is one of the most important months of the year for giving thanks. Veterans Day and Thanksgiving both are foremost in these holidays. Published November 12, 2014
