George Pataki: Social conservatives are a “distraction”

Former NY governor George Pataki is about to announce his intention to add his name to the list of Republicans seeking to be the GOP nominee for president in 2016. Just as you would expect from an East Coast Republican, he wants to make sure he distances himself from the base of the party by attacking, so true to his liberal roots, he is launching his campaign by attacking social conservatives. In a new ad airing in New Hampshire, Pataki is suggesting that the preservation–restoration is probably more accurate–of traditional values is a “distraction” from more pressing dangers. In an…

George Patton - lead me

General George Patton once said: “Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.” I wish he was alive today so that he could deliver that message in person to Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member Mitch McConnell. In a recent Elizabethtown Rotary Club meeting, McConnell demonstrated his total lack of ability to lead, follow, or get out of the way when he told attendees that he expects to maintain but not grow the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate, calling the chances of gaining seats “pretty slim” because Republicans are defending 24 seats while the Democrats…

Falling dominoes

Throughout the United States, especially in communities with existing or potential oil-and-gas development, outside groups have moved in with a vengeance and agitated the population—resulting in bans against all exploration for hydrocarbons and/or the use of hydraulic fracturing. Expensive lawsuits have been filed and courts have repeatedly declared such bans as “unconstitutional.” The newest domino to fall is in Texas where Governor Greg Abbott, on May 18, signed House Bill 40 (HB40)—also known as the Denton Fracking Bill—which clarifies that an “oil and gas operation is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state.” As was the case in Mora…

Americans killed by illegals

A few days ago in Minnesota, a thousand miles from the southwest border, two illegal aliens were arrested for the brutal murder of a 90-year-old man who had hired them to paint his house. This did not happen in Texas or Arizona, which serves to remind us that all 50 states are now “border states.” Some states are more hospitable and “welcoming” to illegal aliens than others. Minnesota has been on the honor roll of these “sanctuary states,” where politicians put up legal roadblocks to enforcement of federal immigration laws. Under the banner of “immigrant rights,” people who are NOT…

Memorial Day 2015

While it’s always appropriate to show honor and appreciation to members of the military, I want to provide this reminder to my readers: today is not Veteran’s Day. It is the one day each year that we come together in reverence to commemorate the Honored Dead. We commiserate with the Gold Star families, old and new, who have paid the ultimate price to ensure that the United States of America will endure. As Americans, it’s important to acknowledge the sacrifices of the men and women in uniform that died to defend her. Civil society only survives in a world of…
