You Shouldn’t Vote for Donald Trump Because of the Supreme Court.

In this unprecedented election, the Democratic and Republican nominees do not sit well with the majority of Americans. For the most part, those that refuse to look outside the two-party system have to go to extremes and single issues to justify voting for either Clinton or Trump. One issue that most have decided to take to, in order to justify their support for Trump, is … Continue reading You Shouldn’t Vote for Donald Trump Because of the Supreme Court.

A Problem Of Conflicting National Interests

I’ll be honest. I don’t think Obama has it out for police officers, or that he tries to push #BlackLivesMatter at every opportunity. I think he’s a leader who’s dealing with two conflicting interests. Granted, they shouldn’t be conflicting, but the nature of American politics, especially on issues of race, has made it so. Whenever Obama mentions the concerns of the black community alongside those … Continue reading A Problem Of Conflicting National Interests

Obama’s Paid Ransom to Iran Shows Why Nuclear Deal Excluded a Signed Treaty

News this week revealing the Obama administration’s handing over to Iran roughly $400 million to secure the full release of American hostages underscores certain truths and, in Bill Clinton’s own words, the president’s “awful legacy”. The manner in which he wired the funds, however, place into context why the Iran Deal was horrible, why the Western allies capitulated on every point to the Iranians, the … Continue reading Obama’s Paid Ransom to Iran Shows Why Nuclear Deal Excluded a Signed Treaty

Libertarian Candidate in North Carolina Looks to Change History

Nestled in the Northeastern part of the state, bordering the Virginia state line, you’ll find the 1st congressional district of North Carolina. It is a fairly vast territory, encompassing all of Halifax County, and large swaths of those surrounding it. Durham, and Warrenton, Tarboro, and Windsor– the cities, as well as the demographics, are various. Half-urban, half-rural, the 1st district is almost split down the … Continue reading Libertarian Candidate in North Carolina Looks to Change History

Is the Charge of the Light Brigade Finally Sweeping Away the “Suicidal” Trump Campaign?

As the “Trump Train” rages along the path to purgatory, one wonders whether his inane ramblings can avoid derailment. Narcissists like Trump must self-immolate before a captivated audience fearful of the aspiring tyrant if he is to be felled. And August 2, 2016 may go down as the night America received an early unexpected Christmas gift. CNBC’s John Harwood tweeted reports of potentially catastrophic desertions by Trump campaign staffers described by inside sources to be … Continue reading Is the Charge of the Light Brigade Finally Sweeping Away the “Suicidal” Trump Campaign?

A Nation Sold to Moscow or An American Islamic Socialist Republic?

What difference, at this point, does it make when the scorecard on both presidential candidates’ scandals reflects the first half of a basketball game? Not one bit considering for all intents and purposes, Hillary Clinton’s platform is available to the highest bidder among the donor class or, in Donald Trump’s case, the classic prototypical candidate groomed to be Vladimir Putin’s puppet czar for a new American Potemkin … Continue reading A Nation Sold to Moscow or An American Islamic Socialist Republic?

The Devolution of the Nation-State and Cultural Renaissance by Individuals

The common tie binding America into the global arena is the international banking system, most notably anchored by the International Monetary Fund and central banks. It is as old a truth as the history of man, that he who controls the monetary supply can manipulate the trends of domestic trade under a geopolitical framework. As Lord Acton noted, “The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will … Continue reading The Devolution of the Nation-State and Cultural Renaissance by Individuals
