GOP… Gutless On Principle

Republicans have a strong, principled platform on which to stand. Unfortunately, they are unwilling to step anywhere near it, choosing instead to abandon platform principles at every opportunity.  They are afraid of their own shadow.  Fearful that they will be “blamed”, accused or somehow maligned for doing the right thing. The Congress could have taken…

Audit The Federal Reserve

The Constitution (Article 1, Section 8) gives Congress power “To coin money, regulate the value thereof”. Why, then, is the Federal Reserve printing money and regulating banks?

For years, I have been impressed with his commitment to truth.  He needs no introduction.  America knows him as someone who has been in the trenches, living his faith.  He is a man who has earned the right to be heard, and his…

Does Obama Love America?

Mayor Giuliani says no. It’s caused an uproar, particularly in liberal circles.  But the Mayor does present evidence that he says supports his claim. Governor Scott Walker was asked the question, “do you believe President Obama is a Christian?”  Walker artfully dodged the question. Who has it right, the Mayor to call it like he…

Evidence Surfacing In Case Against Jackley

Is this just a “hit” piece against Attorney General Jackley? You should decide for yourself. One thing seems certain.  South Dakota has not given voice to investigative journalism… not the likes of Texan, Lee Stranahan.  He has been maligned personally by those who would choose to dismiss or silence him.  That hasn’t worked.  He has…
