Incumbents, Words And Strange Things

*3 down, 532 to go. It looks like it’s going to be a tough year for incumbents. And it’s about time. Conservatives in Utah said “no thanks” to Bob Bennett’s attempt to turn the Senate seat there into a lifetime sinecure. Democrats in Pennsylvania told Arlen Specter to return to private life, despite Barack Obama’s […]

Patrick Henry: America’s Greatest Orator

America’s greatest orator was born on May 29, 1736. I’m referring to Patrick Henry, whose “give me liberty or give me death” speech to the Virginia House of Burgess marked an important turning point in our battle for independence. Here’s how Paul Johnson, one of America’s greatest historians, describes the moment in his book, A […]

Annie, Hannity, Goldman Sachs And Gold

*Leapin’ lizards, folks, Annie’s gone. I’m sorry to report that Little Orphan Annie won’t live to see 100. The folks at Tribune Media Services say the last column of the iconic comic strip has been sent to the handful of newspapers that still run it. The column made its debut on Aug. 5, 1924. Annie […]

Anchor Babies And The Illegal 14th

Because of the wording of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution, anchor babies—children born to illegal immigrants—not only are granted citizenship, but they open the door for their relatives to become citizens as well. Read this article to learn more about this issue and the 14th Amendment…

The Birth Of Wall Street

What would become the New York Stock Exchange was born 218 years ago this week. On May 17, 1792, 21 stock brokers and representatives of three firms met under a buttonwood tree at 68 Wall Street and signed what became known as “the Buttonwood Agreement” to regularize the buying and selling of public shares. Members […]

Arizona Si, Obama No!

The racists of La Raza, and a number of other self-proclaimed do-gooders, are claiming to be outraged that the good citizens of Arizona have the unmitigated gall to do what their Federal government should be doing for them—protecting them from an alien invasion. Read this article to see what Geopolitical Editor Chip Wood has to say about the battle to protect Arizona’s border…

National Day Of Prayer, Thai Fun, Obama Names And BP

*Maybe we should pray for them. By all reports, the National Day of Prayer May 7 was a huge success. I say “by all reports,” but actually there were very few mentions of it. Did you hear anything on television or read in the press about the Pentagon “disinviting” Billy Graham’s son from speaking there […]

The Incomparable Irving Berlin

It was 122 years ago this week that America’s most prolific composer and lyricist was born. Israel Isidore Beilin—who became much better known as Irving Berlin—was born in Mogilev, Russia, (in what is now Belarus) on May 11, 1888. The future composer was 5 years old when his parents moved to New York City. After […]

Is Barack Obama A Socialist?

Is Barack Obama a socialist? Ron Paul says he’s not. A lot of you insist he is. The national director of Democratic Socialists of America claims that “the most socialistic candidate in the 2008 election was Sarah Palin.” (Don’t ask me what he’s been smoking.) And in a famous cover story a year ago, Newsweek magazine insisted, “We Are All Socialists Now.” Read this article to learn all about political labels…

Astronomical Numbers, Geeky Barbie, Wind Farms And Craigslist

*U.S. debt—bigger than the galaxy? Thanks to an alert reader who sent me the following quote by Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman: “There are 1011 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it’s only 100 billion. It’s less than the national debt. We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we […]
