AFRICAN-AMERICAN REPUBLICANS

Guillory

African-American Republicans are the key to saving the Republican Party; it just needs more of them. State Representative Elbert Guillory, an African American from the 24th district of Louisiana, recently switched from the Democratic to the Republican Party. He released a video explaining his decision that every Republican and every black American should watch. It provides the rationale for black Democrats becoming Republicans.

POPE FRANCIS AND THE POWER OF THE PAPACY

Jorge_Mario_Bergoglio

In October 1978, the visiting CIA analyst teaching my National Security Affairs course at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, began class by asking, “What’s the significance of this new Polish Pope?” Without waiting for an answer he said, “He will hasten the fall of the Soviet Union.” Recalling that experience, I asked myself, what is the significance of this new Argentine Pope?  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

CUTTING DEFENSE AND AMERICA DOWN TO SIZE

Budget cuts already proposed by President Obama and those that could take effect if the “supercommittee” in Congress fails to agree on $1.5 trillion in deficit reduction could cut the defense budget more than $1 trillion over the next 10 years, devastating U.S. military capabilities.

Indeed, it is the most powerful city, not only in the West, but in the entire world. I fear, however, I will live to see the day when it is no longer.  (More)

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.
