Meet John Feehery, Perhaps the Worst GOP Establishment Consultant Ever

Before this week, I figured that the race to the intellectual bottom for Republican consultants would have been a doggoned close contest. For years I’ve written many columns – and a book – that laid bare the cognitive dissonance and record of embarrassing losses of such wizards as Karl Rove, Haley (and Henry) Barbour, Rick Tyler, Andrea Saul, Charlie [...]

The Cycles of American History

Because our lives are short, we tend to see history as a linear progression of events, evolving from what we personally know from our own past, that we then project into the future. Historians and students of history, however, understand that history is cyclical. The linear progression we see for ourselves is only a small [...]

Obamacare Destroying Lives in NC

pattie

Two of Pattie Curran’s three sons have rare bone marrow failure syndrome combined with a secondary mitochondrial disease. Life’s been tough, but they’ve made it work. Until Obamacare. From the description of a new video produced by Nicole Revels (published below): this Piedmont-Triad family “has witnessed their family’s insurance coverage slip away as premiums, deductibles, and [...]

Isn’t The ‘Best’ Jobs Policy A Job?

When is a ‘job’ a ‘good job’? Usually when you have one. As opposed to when you don’t have one. The word ‘job’ is sort of odd, isn’t it? It comes from an uncertain origin, probably around the 1550s in Olde England where a ‘jobbe of worke’ meant a ‘piece of work’ as contrasted with [...]

Protecting the Individual Citizen

Who will protect us when government becomes the enemy of the sovereign man? As the federal government increasingly disregards the Constitution and the Natural Law Rights it protects and secures for We the People, who will stand in the breach? When the transition from public servant to tyrant is complete and the totalitarian police state [...]

Legislative Supremacy and Suing the Executive in the White House

I am not a constitutional scholar. But I have been around enough of them to know what they are and what they might say from time to time. I am not a big fan of President Obama. I thought there was a slight glimmer of hope the more I watched re-runs of his truly great [...]

The ‘Debbie Downer’ ‘Slow Growth Economy’ of President Obama vs. Jimmy Carter’s ‘Malaise’

Ardent supporters of the President will point to the new stock market highs, the falling unemployment rate and a few other economic reports and say: ‘See? His policies worked! All we needed to do was more of the same and think about how great things would be today!’ If that is true, how come so many [...]

President Obama and the EPA are Killing U.S. Energy

In January 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama essentially pledged to shut down the American energy market with new regulations when he said, “If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.” Two years later his destructive rhetoric continued to flow through the administration’s hallways as federal officials threatened to [...]
