There are plenty of people who release false personal information on someone to destroy that person, politician or businessman’s career. The intent of the pronouncement is to hurt others not to protect unaware and innocent people. The accusations they make are mostly based on innuendo, which is stated to promote them over an adversary or seek revenge over a perceived wrong. The same nasty intentions can motivate a whistleblower. Whistleblowers are not always honorable guys; they can be scoundrels too.

It is disconcerting to conservatives that the Republican Party talks a good game but never seems to deliver. Their track record is becoming impossible to ignore. America in 2010 and 2014 gave Republicans a mandate to stifle President Obama’s transformation of our country into a socialist state.

The Avenue in the Rain by Childe Hassam, 1971

The fourth of July is typically celebrated by fireworks and backyard barbeques. It is a time for families and neighbors to get together to celebrate our American way of life. Without Independence, that way of life would be much different. Although fireworks and barbeques are enjoyable, we also need to reflect on how we, as a nation, can keep our independence for the generations to come.

Donald Trump raised a firestorm when he questioned federal judge Gonzalo Curiel’s ability to be fair in his decisions about the Trump University’s civil fraud case. The leftist media held onto the story for months before releasing it and attacking Trump unmercifully. Most surprisingly was the vicious manner the establishment republicans solidly lined up to crucify him as a bigot who had to repent to regain any of their support. Somehow his comment that Judge Curiel could be biased against him because of his tough anti illegal immigrant stance certifies Trump as a racist.

Is Bernie dishonest, brainwashed or just ignorant?

Bernie Sanders is folksy appearing in his rumpled suits and spastic finger pointing. His speeches are direct with simply expressed ideas. Bernie clearly attacks the “1%ers” of each party. The Wall Street lobbyists, big money friends are his primary targets. He often infers that our nation is too capitalistic and we should adopt socialistic policies. His older brother, Larry, who he greatly admires, placed him on his socialist path. He has stated he is a “democratic socialist,” the same term Lenin used before Russia was revealed as a communist state.

OP-ED: The threat of ISIS

With the rest of the nation, I awoke on Sunday morning to hear the devastating news about our neighbors in Orlando. It's a powerful thing to be preparing to go to church and have to confront such evil along the way. Like so many Americans, I spent Sunday morning praying for some measure of clarity. The hard reality is, there are no easy answers.

Tolerance for deviants but not for normal

Humans have the freedom to choose any behavior they desire. However, there are physical limitations to those choices such as flying like a bird, running like a cheetah and swimming to great depths like a fish. We can overcome these limitations with the ingenuity of mechanical devices but flying in an airplane does not make us a bird, a racecar does not make us a cheetah or a dive tank a fish.

We are humans no matter how loud or often our state controlled culture says we can be whatever we want to be regardless of reality.

Immigration has always existed throughout history. As civilizations rose and fell people moved toward those societies that offered more possible advantages and away from ones that were stagnating or decaying.
