Storm winds of tyranny blew across Texas in early 1836. In those days the region was a part of Mexico, where General Santa Anna had seized power and made himself dictator. Texans weren't willing to submit to his rule, so Santa Anna marched north with an army.
In San Antonio a small band gathered to make their stand at the Alamo, an old Spanish mission turned into a fort. They were tough characters, men who had settled a wild frontier. …Continue

"Brian Hook runs Missouri Watchdog, a non partisan group that digs information out of government agencies. Hook says the transactions might not be fraud, but likely illustrate waste. Hook said, "The first thing that jumps to my mind is where did they get the money to get to Hawaii and Alaska."Indeed.

Most thinking Americans would now agree that Obama is in over his head, that he is plotting for an America that will cause all Americans to be more hungry, colder in the winter, less employed, less educated, less happy, less healthy, less traveled, more poorly housed, and have less wealth (and these things would also apply to his own daughters when they reach adulthood).
All of these things are dangerous enough on their own, but the real danger with Obama is that he honestly…Continue
Boston, Massachusetts, seethed with resentment in 1770. London had imposed taxes on the colonists even though they had no voice in Parliament, and the king had sent troops to Boston to keep an eye on the unruly Americans.
On the night of March 5, a crowd began to taunt some British guards at the royal Customs House, brandishing clubs and calling them "lobsters." The soldiers fixed bayonets onto their muskets, and the mob responded by…Continue

From April Clark:
Secretary Kobach’s SAFE Act (HB 2067 - Secure and Fair Elections – voter fraud bill) has been referred to two committees in the Kansas Senate. This is unusual, and is a good indication that an effort is being made to kill the bill. If your senator is on one of the two committees, please contact them and let them know how you feel, and ask your friends to do the…Continue
When Abraham Lincoln gave his second inaugural address at the U.S. Capitol on March 4, 1865, the end of the Civil War was in sight. Sherman had cut through the South, and Grant was…Continue

Political scientist Edward Banfield, in his book The Unheavenly City, responded to the dilemma of why some people commit crimes and why other people don't, stating that criminals act unwisely because of their "orientation toward the future" consisting of their "inability to imagine a future", combined with their "inability to discipline" themselves "to sacrifice present for future satisfaction". By making this distinction of…Continue

The Kansas City Chiefs aren't the only thing that have some Missourians seeing red this fall. Senator Claire McCaskill was not on the ballot this November, but Missouri made a resounding statement against her agenda. On Tuesday, Missouri voted in U.S. Senator-elect Roy Blunt by a 13.7% margin over Robin Carnahan. That margin is greater than any of Senator Kit Bond's previous elections for that seat. The results are clear; when President Obama's agenda is on the…Continue
Once again, Senator Claire McCaskill has proven that she is out of step with Missourians. On February 2, 2011, McCaskill voted against a House bill which would have repealed President Obama's healthcare takeover.
In August, 2010, over 70% of Missouri voters approved Proposition C, a measure aimed to prevent the federal government from punishing citizens without health insurance. Responding to…Continue
As a Republican voting in this years Kansas City Mayoral election, choosing between candidates Sly James and Mike Burke is like choosing between a stomp on the foot or a poke in the eye. We are forced to vote not on issues, but their decision-making and leadership skills.
On March 1, Burke became the frontrunner because he discussed, rather vaguely, how he would manage the loss of the one…Continue
Eric Holder is the Attorney General of the United States of America and all of the people within its borders. He is charged with upholding our laws (all of our laws) and defending our Constitution (all of it). Eric Holder took an oath upon his confirmation as Attorney General to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
Eric Holder should be given the boot because he is selectively refusing to defend DOMA at the…

On March 3, 1776, George Washington's Patriot army was in the final stages of pulling off one of the biggest surprises of the Revolutionary War, thanks to a bookseller named Henry Knox.
The opening phase of the war found the British in control of Boston. The Patriots had not been able to break the redcoats' hold on the port, and George Washington was running out of time since the enlistment terms of many of his men would soon…Continue
In spite of the fact that the Attorney General of the United States is in place to protect all of the American people, Eric Holder recently said in effect that he will protect "his people" in the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case to the detriment of all other citizens. Are there any questions as to who his "people" are? And what happened to equal protection under the law for all citizens?
There is a pattern of violence and racism in the Obama…

Protesters are now turning their sites on Ohio and Indiana, with much of the pro-union astro-turf organized by far left agitators "MoveOn dot Org," et al.
And, like the "fleebaggers" from Wisconsin, Indiana has its own crop of AWOL democrat lawmakers fleeing their responsibilities in the face of…Continue
The Tea Party is made up of educated and informed people of all races, backgrounds and religions who are not in need of a "leader" but are instead searching for a viable candidate through whom they can get their opinions expressed in Washington and the legislation that results from elections. Instead of needing an organizer they are doing the organizing themselves by selecting candidates who please them and agree with their selfless positions. Their lack of need for a "leader" is…Continue
