A Government of the People

  We’re only a few days away from this nation’s Election Day and most eyes in the nation are focused on the Presidential race. Sadly, that race is between a populist and a criminal. The decision on whom to vote for, this year more than most, is focused less on who you support and more on who you oppose least.  What is one to do? Reagan famously said, “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to the problem; government is the problem”.  Unfortunately, most on both sides of the political aisle see their candidate as the reluctant solution, not to our political problems, but the problem of the ‘other candidate’.  Today I want to take Reagan’s quote one step further and add “…and we are the government”.   We’re casting a … Read entire article »

Why Does the Left Hate Free Speech & Love Their Hate-Speech?

Milo Yiannopolous, self-identified conservative, gay, provocateur, has done what he does best, ruffled some feathers.  He was invited by the College Republicans at DePaul University to speak.  Knowing that the Chicago campus isn’t exactly the safest, most open-minded, progressive utopia it claims to be, Milo asked for security at the campus.  DePaul forced him to pay for it himself, a somewhat curious stance that should be investigated further.   Protesters were outside of the event even prior to it starting (something that should have cued the university into perhaps intervening in some way).  In the middle of the event, while Milo was speaking, Edward Ward, a Black Lives Matters…member, shirt-wearer, participant (?), and “church minister” came on to the stage and began to yell in “protest” – eventually threatening to hit … Read entire article »

Modify Your Focus – See Conservatism is Absolutely Winning

While the Trump campaign begins making moves further to the left now that he has all but wrapped up the GOP nomination, those conservatives of the “Never Trump” crowd are far from the healing process. Every time the GOP nominee flips left on an issue such as the federal minimum wage, or appoints another lifetime liberal to his staff, those who oppose him from the right dig another trench in what is bound to be a long fight.  At the same time, the phase of denial is turning to melancholy for some on the right as they have begun looking for representation in other places – any other place.  Volumes of conservatives are characterizing with Reagan who once said of the Democratic Party – “the party left me”. As is often … Read entire article »

Never Trump Was No Idle Threat

This thing is real – and I don’t think it is temporary.  It’s transient not for me. The GOP is split and it wound is gaping.  Sen. Sasse, Ben Shapiro, Brent Bozell, Charles Cooke, Erick Erickson, Jonah Goldberg, Stephen Hayes, Ben Howe, Bill Kristol, Mark Levin, Ron Paul, Ben Stein, George Will, Rick Wilson, Nathan Wurtzel, and many others have already pledged to never support Trump.  This stance isn’t taken lightly either – it is at a time when there is much at stake.  Some might argue, the stakes have never been higher for conservatives. The death of Scalia and the ages of (Ginsberg, Kennedy, and Breyer) possibly opens four seats – a huge opportunity for either the democrats or the republicans to change the course of the next 25 years of … Read entire article »

You Get What You Didn’t Want – And You Deserve It

I’ve been preparing to write this for some time; mentally.  It isn’t written in bitterness, but in sadness.  Much like the husband who finds out that his wife has been cheating on them behind his back and wants to run off with that man – I find myself in the gut-wrenching position of having no option but to cut ties with her.  So it is with the Republican Party and its supporters. Now, that is going to take a bit of explaining.  In this environment saying you’re against the Republican Party sounds cliché; I do not mean that I am against the establishment alone; but both the establishment and the massive hoard of “anti-establishment” constituents that supported Donald Trump in this election. Years ago John and I started a blog.  That blog … Read entire article »

Matt Jones – The Future Face in Politics?

My undergrad work was done at the University of Kentucky and, it goes without saying, I am part of the Big Blue Nation. As such, I am also a fan of the fun and entertaining radio show (and blog) Kentucky Sports Radio with Matt Jones. Matt is an interesting cookie.  First, he is a Kentucky fan who blogs and has the most popular radio show in the state of Kentucky (as well as a very well-done podcast).  On one day he may be having a best fast food tournament while poking fun at the University of Louisville, the next day having a feud with the state’s Governor on Twitter.  Add to that that Matt went to law school at rival Duke University, showed some interest in running for a senate … Read entire article »

Cruz Control – Guide to Primaries

Cruz Control – Guide to Primaries

Per my predictions, Cruz has pulled ahead in December in Iowa. He has to hold that spot for 55 days in the most focused time period of the primary season. If Iowans weren’t paying attention before; they will come late December (when everyone is off work discussing politics with family) and in January. February 1st is when the Iowa Caucus is held and Carson’s free fall means windfall for Cruz. He also seems to have … Read entire article »

I Support Ted Cruz – Our Champion

It is not as if I haven’t tried to get behind some others and this isn’t a blind move – it was a well thought out decision. Ted Cruz is the one person I can get behind. There are others that I really like. I like Rand Paul (if for no other reason, Thomas Massie supports him) for his principled libertarian beliefs. I appreciate Carson and Rubio for what and who they are – decent men who have a conservative streak in them. Most of the others could drop out tomorrow and I wouldn’t bat an eye. Allow me to explain why Cruz is my champion. I didn’t use the word “champion” flippantly. Champion originates from the 13th century meaning “to fight for, defend, protect” and “one who fights on behalf … Read entire article »

Live GOP Debate Coverage (Live updates)

About to start.  I hope you are joining me.  Leave comments below as we go. 4:45 ET – Wouldn’t say that I’m excited about this debate.  My hope is actually that we get some huge blunders from the moderates that forces them to drop out soon.  Unlikely, but that would be nice because with this many we aren’t going to get any chance at substance (which plays to the hand of the Bush and Christie types).  If we get substance out of these debates then the Cruz, Paul, Rubio ilk.  So here is to the 2015 Rick Perry’s (to include you Rick!). 5:00 ET – Will cover the 5:00 debate (generally) later.  I won’t cover it live like I will the 9:00. 6:40 ET – Here’s my wrap up of the candidates from … Read entire article »

The Price of Life

In 1932, a study on syphilis was started on 600 black men.  The study went on for 40 years without ever informing the men what the study was truly about and never offered the men proper treatment for their diagnosis.  In 1972, the Associated Press broke the story which started a review.  It was found out that the men, for the purpose of the study, were hindered from getting treatment and many died as a result.  In 1997 the President apologized on behalf of the nation.  In that apology he said, “To our African American citizens, I am sorry that your federal government orchestrated a study so clearly racist. That can never be allowed to happen again. It is against everything our country stands for and what we must stand … Read entire article »

Getting Ready for Election Season: Exposing the Game

It’s been a while since we’ve posted here at the Sentry Journal and I don’t know how often I will post, but we’re currently in a place where I feel obligated to write.  John and I have been in contact and I can say that should we write here more often the content will be a sea change from what we wrote in the past.  I will allow you all to judge and discern whether it is worthy of your time (and ours).  Let us restart: Election season is coming up and I have very little optimism.  Truly, I tend to be an optimistic person; but recent elections have left me supremely disappointed; not only in the politicians, but in the people.  Perhaps more important than the elections is the apathy Americans … Read entire article »

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing. To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate. First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” (as if).  Of course she doesn’t give a hoot about republicans expanding their base – she is just happy to see conservatives lose.  Well, it was McConnell and the GOP establishment who … Read entire article »

Baby Boomers: The Selfish Generation

Let me preface this piece with a few necessities.  First, I grew up being told that my generation (X) was the worst.  We were lazy, the television generation who expected everything to be given to us.  No doubt every generation before mine had to deal with the same “when I was your age”, self-absorbed and forward blaming rhetoric.  Never mind that we are the product of our parents (how did we become the television generation?). Second, this isn’t an unthoughtful whining or a blind pointing at my parents for all of the world’s woes.  I always found it somewhat sickening that my parent’s generation (not necessarily my parents) were willing to place their life struggles on the “greatest generation” that preceded them.  It took a lot of reflection to make sure … Read entire article »

Christmas and the Miracle of Being Born

“His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.  Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.  But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.” In this season Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus.  It is somewhat interesting that we celebrate the birth, but that is not when Christ entered the world is it?  Moving beyond the John … Read entire article »

Post Constitutional America

It’s time we accept reality and the premise of a new argument about America, or as Mark Levin calls it, Ameritopia. Daily I am astounded by the number of laws and regulations that our legislatures have applied to us especially when juxtaposed with how unwell our politicians observe their own laws or even the simple legal document that created and guides them.  We are a constitutional republic; that is to say, a nation created by a legal document that defines our system of government and then creates boundaries and limitations on what said government can do.  It is largely a legal document written in the spirit of withholding power, not granting it.  Further, and perhaps most importantly, it is law that necessitates a system of Montesquieu’s divided government and a system … Read entire article »

Understanding Large Sums of Money

It is simply amazing how we throw around words like “billion” and “trillion” today.  I’m often put back at how politicians can say things like “$12 billion is only a drop in the bucket”.   Most of us have seen youtube videos that show pictures illustrating the size of billions or trillions of dollars.  A new youtube video inspired this post.  You can watch it here; but I decided not to embed it because it has foul language. One of the reasons that our government bodies can get away with throwing numbers around is because we’ve grown so accustomed to those words “billion” and “trillion”.  Even when written out in numerical format they don’t impact us the way that they probably should. For instance this is one billion dollars written out: $1,000,000,000 Compare that to … Read entire article »

David Angelo and eEconomics – Special Series Part 2

Part 2 of this series is dedicated to taxes and the lies that the liberals spew about them.  For too long the arguments surrounding our tax rates have been played on loop.  These videos tear apart some of those arguments.  We should all watch and share these because, as David puts it, “It’s about time you stupid peasants understand how this game is played”. … Read entire article »

Rape and Abortion

Every once in a while I am pulled back into the abortion debate; which I welcome fully.  I welcome abortion arguments because I feel that the more popular arguments on all sides of the issue are pretty weak.  I hope that posting on the issue will supply pro-life individuals with some weaponry and, of course, turn the minds of those who are pro-abortion. So first let me say that I am pro-life to the fullest degree and only accept abortion as morally correct when it puts the mother’s life in grave and immediate danger.  The readers who know me likely understand my political philosophies to be conservative with strong leanings toward libertarianism.  It is my libertarianism leanings that allow me to be neutral on gay marriage (government shouldn’t be involved in … Read entire article »

David Angelo and eEconomics – Special Series Part 1

I was recently guided to a series of videos by one of our contributors (Patrick) that I enjoyed so much that I was compelled to share it with all of you.  I will start a little series that includes today’s introduction. First let me introduce Mr. David Angelo.  He’s smart, dry, witty, and conservative.  That’s enough for me to like him, but perhaps his best quality is his ability to reason complicated things simply.  He displays this in a youtube series called eEconomics (which is what I will be sharing here with his permission).   While these videos don’t go into great depth about subjects that many of us feel well versed on, I still managed to learn quite a bit. David is a comedian, a writer (previously for Jimmy Fallon), and apparently … Read entire article »

Crumbling Foundations

I’ve heard many rebuts to Sen. Rand Paul’s assertion that while Snowden lied and committed criminal acts, so did James Clapper and history will judge which, if either, were righteous.  I’m not one to quickly jump in the corner of any individual and Snowden is no exception.  I simply don’t know who he is.  For all we know he is a spy, a communist supporter, or worse.  Then again, he may be the catalyst for our nation’s youth and the love of liberty – completely selfless and righteous in this act.  What I do know is that the NSA (to include James Clapper) has been dishonest to the American people and continues to be. There’s a bit of irony in all of this post 9/11 reaction.  Liberals are more interested than … Read entire article »

The Nation Feels Safe

Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Theoretical reason to ignore 1st Amendment: Congress makes law prohibiting the free exercise of Islam because it harbors so many terrorists.  Islam is abolished from the U.S.  The nation feels safer. Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Theoretical reason to ignore 2nd Amendment: Congress collects all firearms in response to mass shootings across the nation.  The nation feels safer. Amendment III No Soldier shall, in time of peace be … Read entire article »

Edelweiss – Remembering Through Song What Was

The Edelweiss is simply a flower found only in high mountain regions, mainly in Austria and Switzerland.  In 1965 the edelweiss took on a completely different meaning when Captain von Trapp sang a song about the flower twice in The Sound of Music.  The song became an anthem of sorts for Austria and a retroactive defiance to Nazism. The von Trapp family was a real family (though depicted differently in film) and, while perhaps not as romantic, the reality is more interesting than the story we’ve been told.  For one, they weren’t all blonde (most were brunettes), there were 10 children (which would have made the song “So Long, Farewell a great deal longer), and Maria didn’t fall in love with Georg, but married him because she loved the children.  While … Read entire article »

Lassoing Leviathan

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve heard a new defense growing for the IRS scheme that singled out Tea Party groups that applied for tax exemption.  In my last post I pointed out the first I saw of such a defense from the Huffington Post.  Basically they dismiss any wrong doing due to the nature of Tea Party groups.  As Amy Poehler joked on Saturday Night Live, “You’re surprised you are targeted by the IRS?  You named yourself after a group of people who proudly and historically violated tax laws”.  Since this is in fact true, it isn’t out of bounds to logically conclude that these groups might also violate tax laws. Of course, the modern Tea Party isn’t the Tea Party of the 18th century and the tax laws … Read entire article »

Politics is Scandalous

For weeks I’ve been visiting the Huffington Post and looking for stories on Benghazi.  To nobody’s surprise, I found almost nothing.  On the days that big stories broke on even the major news networks, nothing was to be found on the HuffPo.  The last few days have been quite different – Benghazi everywhere!  When the IRS and AP stories broke, nothing on HuffPo, but the stories are mentioned now.  Is the HuffPo that slow to respond to news? The stories are to be found on the biggest political blog in the world, but they were buried for bigger headlines like Angelina’s mastectomy and the ills of cheap labor overseas.  All of those recent stories on the scandal subjects are, of course, in defense of the administration.  Go figure. Peter Goodman praises the … Read entire article »

Forgetting Benghazi

There is a lot being said right now about Benghazi in Washington.  Granted, it’s not being said by the White House and it’s not being said by democrats.  Try finding a reference to Benghazi on the HuffPo, CNN, MSNBC, or NYTimes websites without using the search feature and you’ll be out of luck.  The NYTimes hasn’t written anything on Benghazi in months, even though Benghazi is the 5th most searched topic on their website.  CNN has the story buried, but it’s the 4th most popular search on their website.  It’s interesting how terrorist raids on embassies and ruthless serial killer abortion doctors aren’t newsworthy. People are talking though.  It’s sad, but 6 months after the murder of 4 Americans, we still haven’t been given the truth by the State Department of … Read entire article »

Sequestration Answers for Military Members

After adjusting for inflation our federal spending, post sequestration, is back to 2009 levels.  In 2009 military members had tuition assistance.  Why is it then that if our spending levels are the same that we don’t have tuition assistance available for military members?  Why is it that, if this isn’t an actual cut to federal spending that the military is getting real cuts to spending?  Why is it that promised domestic spending programs (Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Obamacare) aren’t touched, but benefits of military members who have spent the past 10 years at war are being cut? There are a lot of questions that military members are asking right now because this is starting to actually affect them and they don’t understand why or what else might happen.  I will attempt … Read entire article »

Battle Lines Drawn

Mr. Paul’s filibuster was a big deal for reasons other than the obvious.  Sure, it’s great that he forced the Attorney General to admit that what they had previously condoned was actually illegal.  It’s excellent that he got some face time for a very important issue that otherwise wouldn’t have been talked about.  I’m happy that it has garnered support from the left and the right (that’s the first bit of bipartisanship I’ve seen in ages).  Still, that’s not what is most important to me. What has me excited is that two GOP senators, who were eating with the President at the time of the filibuster, ended up being the only people to strongly oppose Rand’s actions.  Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham were quick to support the “we are at war” mantra as … Read entire article »

How the World Continues

Too often it is the case that we focus on what is wrong with the world rather than what is right.  That truth spans through various positions of criticism be it politics, economics, or faith.  On the latter, I have often heard scoffers of faith (specifically Christianity) speak of the ill that Christianity has brought the world as a way of demeaning the religion.  I must reject this notion.  I cannot deny that evil men have taken the banner of Christianity and have done terrible things with its power, but Christianity has harmed no one.  It cannot. The purpose of this post, however, is not to defend the faith, but to point out the goodness of people.  Frequently our attention is turned to those who choose to do wrong, who harm … Read entire article »

Standing on Principle – Drug Testing Welfare Recipients

There are few things that should irk Americans more than seeing their cash taken from them in order to fund something immoral or reprehensible.  That is why I find it amazing that so many are angry about there being no drug test for welfare recipients when so few seem to care about all of the other places their tax money goes.  Still, I understand the sentiment.  “Cash for Crack” might be a good slogan for some areas when it comes to welfare use – and that makes me angry as much as it does the next guy. Still, welfare programs don’t have to buy drugs necessarily in order to make the purchases unpalatable.  A friend of mine worked in retail and used to get angry when someone came through buying food … Read entire article »

America Domesticated

Domesticate: to take, especially by generations of breeding, to live in close association with human beings as a pet or work animal and usually creating a dependency so that the animal loses its ability to live in the wild. I have the most pathetic dog in the world.  He’s a cock-a-poo.  He’s fat, lazy, and the only thing that qualifies as effort in his life is when he begs.  Still, we are pathetic owners.  We love him because he is cute and because he is ours.  We are those bad owners who give him food from the table and treats for tricks.  He sleeps on a nice bed, has his toys replaced when they go bad (due to his mistreatment of them), and has more money than can be justified spent … Read entire article »

Peace and Mideast Rhyme

While deleting all of my emails where I spelled “Obama” as “Osama” in fear that the Senate bill that bypasses the 4th Amendment and mistake me as a terrorist correspondent from Reuters, I considered the promising statement made by Obama about Israel, “There’s no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders.”  For the first time in a while Osama Obama and I agree.  Which is why I am fully behind is stance to stop the drone attacks in countries we haven’t declared war.  *pause* I’m also with the President for calling out Iran for supplying Palestinians with weapons in Gaza.  I’m a bit curious as to why he didn’t actually stop the supply ship that intelligence revealed.  Well, it’s likely that he … Read entire article »

RightHandMan Endorses….

Let me preface this by saying that I am speaking for myself, not John or anyone else at the Sentry Journal. There is a strong libertarian thread that runs through my veins – something that should be evident by my posts.  I’ve been no fan of Governor Romney and have little enthusiasm about the candidate.  Still, I have found myself in his corner for reasons that some of you might find flawed.  If so, so be it. I am not new to politics and have in the past endorsed 3rd party candidates.  I have long been a supporter of those who vote according to their conscience – even with the knowledge that their vote is going to a losing candidate.  Gary Johnson is going to lose this election, but that is not … Read entire article »

Cover Up Not Worse Than Crime: Benghazi Timeline

I’ve been trying to play catch up on the Benghazi attack this week.  It’s rough keeping your head from spinning when there’s so much spin surrounding the topic; but I have tried for your benefit. Here’s what we all need to know: At 8:30 pm Benghazi time U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens steps outside the consulate to say goodbye to a Turkish diplomat. There are no protesters at this time. (“Everything is calm at 8:30,” a State Department official would later say at an Oct. 9 background briefing for reporters. “There’s nothing unusual. There has been nothing unusual during the day at all outside.”) At Approximately 8:40 p.m. A security agent at the Benghazi compound hears “loud noises” coming from the front gate and “gunfire and an explosion.” A senior State Department official at … Read entire article »

Women and Issues

“In what new ways do you intend to rectify the inequalities in the work place, specifically regarding females making only 72% of what their male counterparts earned?” The response from both candidates amounted to pathetic pandering and nothing about the future.  When asked about what NEW ways they would rectify the inequalities, Obama responded with something he did in the first month of his presidency.  Romney responded with his now infamous “binders full of women” response. Now let’s consider that this was a foreign policy debate and that this 72% number is likely as substantiated as Donald Trumps hairline.  Attempt to do a good research on what the number actually is and you’re going to spin into a mess.  Interestingly, almost all of the places I found numbers showed that when Obama … Read entire article »

When Terrorism Wins

It is troublesome.  Egypt has terrorists running the country; we helped Libya get to that same point.  Syria is on fire and Iran mocks us and threatens the world simultaneously.  The President has time for The View and pirates, but not for the leader of a nation that is being threatened with complete annihilation – that’s just “noise”. It is frustrating that this administration has gone out of its way to defend Islamic terrorism at nearly every step.  When Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to blow up a plane with a shoe bomb on Christmas the President was quick to write it off as a single incident that was unrelated to Muslim Jihadists.  Eric Holder still hasn’t declared the incident an official terrorist act.  This flies in the face of the face … Read entire article »

Redistribution of Poverty

It’s really no surprise that President Obama supports the redistribution of wealth theory (especially considering his upbringing among socialist icons).  What’s fascinating is how much support he’s received from the left on this subject.  Last night to liberals on Bill O’Reilly’s show tried to argue that places like France are a great example of how redistribution can work well…You know, the France that is now attempting to force their rich from leaving so that they can tax them at their “fair share” (75%).  The democratic strategist argued that America’s tax system that was in place since the foundation of the nation is an example of great redistribution at work.  Of course, Bill in his finite wisdom didn’t even hit her on this.  Perhaps they both don’t know about the 16th … Read entire article »

Happy Rosh Hashannah!

Or Yom Teruah to Biblically precise.  Rosh HaShannah just means “head of the year” which is why it is celebrated as the Jewish New Year, but the Biblical holiday is actually Yom Teruah (Day of Blasting).  The blasting is referring to the blowing of the shofar, or trumpet of sorts made out of a ram’s horn.  Below is a picture of mine. The festival comes from Leviticus 23:23 which states, “The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month of the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.” What is this blowing supposed to remind us of?  Well, that is a matter of debate on some level, but most accept that it is … Read entire article »

My Opponent Hates Black People

“Democrats have a long and proud history of defending Civil Rights and expanding opportunity for all Americans. From the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009, Democrats have fought to end discrimination in all forms—including discrimination based on race, sex, ethnicity or national origin, language, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or disability.” So says the DNC website – which sounds great…except it’s frustratingly untrue.  The democrats have successfully rewritten history numerous times regarding race both in the positive light on the democratic side and the negative gloom of the republican side.  The fact is that the very Civil Rights Act of 1964 was filibustered for 83 days by prominent Democrats such as Albert Gore Sr., and Robert Byrd.  Conveniently that isn’t mentioned on … Read entire article »
