KARL ROVE’S SECRET AGENDA

Karl Rove has many critics. Most are Democrats that were on the losing side of political campaigns Rove managed. More recently, his critics include Republicans like Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, and Herman Cain that believe Rove has unfairly criticized them for his own political purposes. So does Rove have a secret agenda—declared and potential Republican candidates he wants to help or hurt—or is he providing objective analysis that the Republicans he criticizes don’t want to hear?  (More)

KILLING QADDAFI

There’s an obvious difference between SEAL Team 6 putting a bullet in Osama Bin Laden’s head and Libyan rebels summarily executing Muammar Qaddafi after capturing him. Ample legal precedent supports killing illegal enemy combatants in time of war. There is no legal precedent, internationally or otherwise, for the summary execution of a captured Qaddafi, nor is it consistent with the “American values” we’ve heard so much about with regard to the George W. Bush administrations conduct of the war on terror. (More)

My iPhone alerted me to genuine “Breaking News” stories so frequently that I could hardly keep up with them. Then on Friday, I turned off my iPhone and my iPad, donned my tuxedo, and walked my daughter down the aisle at her wedding.

BEWARE THE IDES OF OCTOBER

The progressive dream of transforming America into a social-democratic state, where “social justice,” “green jobs,” and the “redistribution of wealth” are its organizing principles, has turned into a nightmare. American voters are on a path to reject the progressive agenda en masse and its standard bearer, President Barack Obama, along with it. But don’t expect progressives to go quietly into the dust bin of history. Beware the ides of October and expect an all out class-warfare attack on Republicans, the Tea Party and conservatives. The question is will it work?  (More)
