  • Just A Little Show Tuesday

    I open Tuesday's show with The New York Times' Ben Hubbard from Beirut, followed by Pastor Robert Jeffress whose interview with Bill O'Reilly is causing the left to swoon, and veteran correspondent(and now academic) Charles Bierbauer who covered both the 1972 and 1996 Olympics –linked by being the occasion of…

  • Cart Before the Horse

    The left is hyper focused on "income inequality" and they believe that message will resonate with the American people.  This is more about politics and winning elections than it is about actually helping people rise up the ladder of the American dream. The first order of business should be to…

    GOP Needs Unity, Not Factional Takeover

    Before “Bridge-gate”, Governor Chris Christie tried to build a sense of inevitability about his potential presidential campaign. That's gone now, and, at least today, it's by no means certain he'll even run.

    VOTER I.D.: Racist and Unconstitutional?

    Leftist judges and Democratic activists increasingly embrace the ludicrous idea that requiring voters to show picture ID constitutes a form of unconstitutional racism.

But these aren't “snubs”—any more than…

    The New York Times Telegraphs Its Hopes, Dreams For 2014

    The New York Times is actually two papers. The domestic paper –anything having to do with policies at home– is a cartoon, an absurdist delight, the daily from Bizarro World. The reporting from around the world by contrast is undeniably the most consistently necessary reads in the world. Today's headline…

  • Meeting the Critical Need of Cross Border Connections

    I've been at the helm of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber (THCC) for over 4 years. During this time, our business community has struggled during the economic recession, but they've also sought out new revenue opportunities on which the THCC has focused. Our business community has an often overlooked market opportunity…

  • Where Do Voting Vets Live?

    This is a pretty interesting map for anyone considering the political consequences of the GOP's abandonment of military retirees under 62 as well as of those on active duty intending to serve at least 20 years. Note the number of vets in North Carolina, Virginia and Arkansas, to name just…
