The world watched and waited to learn the fate of Scotland following its vote on the referendum for independence. For many other regions within the U.K., including Wales and Northern Ireland; within Europe, including Spain’s Catalonia and Belgium’s Flanders; and states within the U.S., including Vermont, Texas and Alaska; Scotland’s vote energized and inspired separatists’ movements—even though they were disappointed with the outcome. While Scotland voted “No,” and chose to remain in the United Kingdom, it made enough noise and caused enough concern in London, that, in effect, it won anyway. When the race appeared to be close, the Wall…

By: Bartlett Cleland (Guest Commentary) If there was any one issue that candidate Barack Obama embraced and promised to pursue if he became president it was the promise of an open and transparent government. The country expressed its support of this promise by a wide margin. But a recent Wall Street Journal article, “FCC Encourages Media Companies to Provide Confidential Complaints on Time Warner Cable Purchase”, uncovers how far this Administration and the FCC have drifted from that promise.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking; there goes the Strident Conservative again on another one of his anti-Obama conspiracy theories. Well hang on to your Constitutions folks, because the flying fecal matter could be just about to hit the fan. Do you remember all the way back in 2008 when Barack Obama said this? Almost sounds like a national police force, doesn’t it? Of course, a national police force would need a national police chief, right? Well, guess what the Congressional Black Caucus, civil rights leaders, religious leaders, unions, and many others just petitioned Obama to do. They are calling for a “Police…
