My Answer to the Thoughtful Post on the Magnitsky Act

Anonymous wrote this as a comment to my recent post on Trump and the original Magnitsky Act and I think it deserves a thorough response: I don’t think there is any due process burden on statements of condemnation.

What is the Republican Party? And What is Our Place in that Party?

Donald Trump and Third Parties are not viable embryoes for growing or effecting serious political change. Constitutional conservatives and libertarians are trapped within the Republican Party and, perhaps, the error in our thinking is that the Republican Party is our party and that it has some obligation to represent us in Congress. If we take […]

What To Make of The Donald?

Donald Trump is on fire; brandishing a flaming sword wreathed in frustrations shared by the vast majority of Americans, The Donald has shown a light on just how involved our political parties, businesses, politicians, and bureaucrats really are in the deliberate destruction of America.

Tiny Victories Aren’t Enough

Growing conservative and libertarian influence in the United States Congress may have its second temporary victory in as many weeks, as Republican Leadership may allow the Export Import Bank to expire, unwilling to bring it to a vote.

Well looky there, ACORN has its own little nut in the Texas House.  The Texas Republicans peeled her bark in a press release today. Thibaut’s past is not unlike that of President Barack Obama; she too started out as a community organizer. And both did work for ACORN. Kristi even appeared at the State Capitol as a […]
