  • Robin Smith is no political outsider

    Democrat Robin Smith’s self-portrayal as a political outsider in her campaign for Missouri Secretary of State is false. She is the daughter and sister of Democratic St. Louis aldermen in the political machine of J. B. “Jet” Banks. The office she seeks supervises elections and officials who verify the identities of absentee voters.

  • St. Louis gets its own Marilyn Mosby

    Out of this past week’s politically correct celebration of the sweep of all three citywide offices by African American candidates in the Democratic primary in the City of St. Louis, there is a note of concern for adherents of law and order. Kim Gardner, the state representative who won the Democratic nomination for Circuit Attorney, […]

  • Impact of disappearing LGBT identity politics

    Today’s Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage has an unexpected side effect. LGBT voters, heretofore distracted by wedge issues dealing specifically with their sexual orientation, are now freed from their single-issue devotion to the Democratic Party. Issues that matter to the rest of the electorate are now more relevant to LGBT voters. Many will conclude that Republicans now represent a better choice.

  • Lessons from Ferguson

    The charged aftermath of the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson illustrates how the Democratic Party has failed the African Americans whose votes put them in power. As everyone pauses to reflect, African Americans would be well served by rethinking their political loyalties.

  • Baba Wawa thought Obama would replace Jesus

    We in the Tea Party always knew they though Obama was the next great coming of our Lord and Savior. From all the great prose that was written about his election, to his own declaration on election night that the “The seas will recede. The planet will heal.” But now after 5 years of disappointment Baba Wawa admits, during the Christmas season no-less, the result is so crushing, because the expectation was so high.

    PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?

    BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.

    It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.

    Luckily, I had no expectation other than what has happened. Obama’s economic policies are a disaster, his healthcare law is a disaster, his gun confiscation desires are a disaster, and there is no doubt that his unfettered, unchecked, illegal immigration policy will be a disaster. My only hope at this point is that the vast majority of Americans will finally see how disastrous this man and more importantly, these policies, are for our country and in 2016 they will do something about it. I hate to say I told you so…….but I did.
