Published on December 11, 2017 By sirrahc

“The little guys’ voices were heard. Voices in the community were heard. This administration has the strength and the will to be there for us. This is a great day for Utah.”  — state Rep. Gregory H.

Should Free Speech Have Limits When It Comes to Terrorism?

Published on June 19, 2016 By sirrahc

“With an enemy committed to terrorism, the advocacy of terrorism — the threats, the words — are not mere dogma, or even calls to ‘action.’ They are themselves weapons — weapons of incitement and intimidation, often as effective in achieving their ends as would be firearms and explosives brandished openly.”  — Andrew C. McCarthy, columnist, […]

Published on May 1, 2016 By sirrahc

“I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I’m in a Cabinet meeting.”  — Pres.

Published on October 11, 2015 By sirrahc

“We’re public servants. I have always put this Conference and Country ahead of myself. We need to unite behind one leader and get to work.”  — Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) As you all know by now, the House Republican Conference’s plans for last Thursday (10/8) had some last-minute changes. They were supposed to have their […]

Breakdowns in the States

Published on March 2, 2014 By sirrahc

I just finished Newt Gingrich’s latest book, Breakout: Pioneers of the Future, Prison Guards of the Past, and the Epic Battle That Will Decide America’s Fate. As expected, it’s a great read. The selfish, stultifying attitudes and actions (or lack thereof) of the “prison guards of the past” that Gingrich writes about are incredibly aggravating. […]

Newt Talks to the NRA

Published on March 16, 2012 By sirrahc

At a Leadership Forum in Pittsburgh, PA, Newt Gingrich addressed members of the National Rifle Association about, not surprisingly, Second Amendment rights. (Shocker, I know!) Towards the beginning, he brought up a very important point about how the Second Amendment is worded. “It talks about the inherent right to bear arms. It doesn’t say the […]

Place: Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma Date: Feb. 20, 2012 Newt hit a lot of the usual topics — e.g., jobs, energy, taxes, Islamist radicals & national security, Obama’s dangerous & irresponsible policies — in this speech, though he did have a few words to say in the beginning about “pursuit of happiness” that I […]

Newt on Israel and Protecting the Free World from Islamic Jihad

Published on March 5, 2012 By sirrahc

Today, we learned that Barack Obama met again with Benjamin Netanyahu, where the President assured the Israeli Prime Minister that the U.S. has Israel’s back, should they decide they need to launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities (though urging him to resist doing so). It’s quite a turnaround from Obama’s previous statements and […]

Newt on Combating Judicial Activism

Published on March 3, 2012 By sirrahc

“There is no judicial supremacy. It does not exist in the American Constitution. Let me be clear: Judicial supremacy is factually wrong; it is morally wrong; and it is an affront to the American system of self-government.” Late last year, Newt Gingrich spoke at the Value Voters Summit, where he addressed the problem of judicial […]
