WINNING THE POLITICAL PROPAGANDA WAR

If Republicans continue to lose presidential elections it won’t be only because they failed to garner a sufficient percentage of the growing Hispanic, Asian and African-American vote; it will be because they continue to lose the propaganda war.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

WARNING TO DEMOCRATS: AVOID FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATIONS

Independence Day!

Every Fourth of July American patriots celebrate much more than Independence Day. We celebrate our political heritage, our freedom, and American Exceptionalism. This year, however, if the findings of a new Harvard University study are true, Democrats may wish to avoid the parades and fireworks displays. According to the study; “Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party.” I’m a conservative Republican, but I am compelled to rise in defense of Democrats.

  • HAVE WE HIT BOTTOM YET? April 13, 2014
    During the nearly five and a half years of the Obama presidency, America has been moving in the wrong direction. The U.S. economy continues to struggle through the longest and slowest recovery from recession since World War II. From Benghazi to Ukraine, U.S. foreign policy has collapsed. U.S. world leadership has receded to a low not seen since the 1930s. Ha […]
  • UKRAINE: APPROACHING CRITICAL MASS? March 23, 2014
    Critical mass in nuclear science is the smallest amount of fissile material needed for a sustained nuclear chain reaction. Critical mass in international politics is the smallest amount of aggression needed to start a war. Despite what President Obama and other Western leaders say and do, the situation in Ukraine may be fast approaching that point.
  • WINNING THE POLITICAL PROPAGANDA WARS March 9, 2014
    If Republicans continue to lose presidential elections it won't be only because they failed to garner a sufficient percentage of the growing Hispanic, Asian and African-American vote; it will be because they continue to lose the political propaganda war.
  • RESTRUCTURING THE MILITARY March 2, 2014
    Like most conservatives, President Obama's proposed reductions of the U.S. armed forces disturb me. Since after World War I, every time we have reduced our military strength after a war, we've regretted it. Nevertheless, it's time to rethink the mission, size and composition of the U.S. military, preparing for the next war, not a repeat of the […]
  • GLOBAL WARMING; A POLITICAL WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION February 23, 2014
    Speaking in Indonesia last week, Secretary of State John Kerry, said that global warming is “perhaps even the world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Sec. Kerry may or may not be right about the destruction global warming may ultimately cause; but he's absolutely right about one thin. Global warming is a weapon. It's a politica […]
  • COMMUNISM, SOCIALISM AND SHORT MEMORIES February 16, 2014
    We might forgive NBC Sports for glossing over the evils of Soviet communism during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, if it weren't for all those young men and women, born since the fall of Soviet Union, that have no memories of the Cold War or the "evil empire." Given the U.S. education system these days, I doubt they learned much about it […]
  • THE TONIGHT SHOW February 9, 2014
    Is Jimmy Fallon in the same league with Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson and Jay Leno?
  • JEB BUSH? February 2, 2014
    Is Jeb Bush the answer to the Republican Party's woes?
  • THE OUTLOOK FOR U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY IN 2014 January 26, 2014
    Straight-line projecting current trends into the future is easy; but odds are that you'll be less than half right. History rarely unfolds in a straight line; and the U.S. national security environment in the year ahead is fraught with twists and turns. Nevertheless, straight-lining things, odds are that by this time next year, threats to U.S. national s […]
  • THE 2014 AND 2016 ELECTIONS January 19, 2014
    The answers to five questions will determine the outcomes of the 2014 and 2016 elections. Is the liberal bubble about to burst? Are red states or blue states on the ascendency? Will the Tea Party resurge or has it lost its clout? Will political party allegiance hold? Finally, who will be the nominees?
