From Under the Rubble…The Unholy Alliance

From Under the Rubble…Lessons in Tyrrany

In January 2009, two newly-elected Republican governors took the oath of office. Immediately, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell were touted as two of the GOP’s hottest future presidential prospects. Today, they are fallen idols.

From Under the Rubble…Cheering for the Wrong Team

  “I’ll tell you what I think God thinks of the Affordable Care Act. It’s a big Amen!” –Political Commentator Ed Schultz It’s not uncommon for the left-wing MSNBC to lead the cheers for President Obama.
