The Retrogression of Civilizations

By Robert Ringer - Friday, August 5, 2011

Now that the Communist Party USA has endorsed Barack Obama for reelection in 2012, the message is clear:  Communists, who have been hiding in the wings since at least the days of Marx and Engels, see this as the moment to come out into the open in a bold and aggressive [...]

My Belief in Shared Sacrifice

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, August 4, 2011

This “shared-sacrifice” babble from Democrats and the media is starting to get to me. My first choice is that there be no income tax at all.  But if we accept the fact that Americans are forever doomed to bondage then, yes, I’m in favor of sharing the sacrifice.  Consider that right [...]

Did the Republicans really win?

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Just as I feared would be the case when the tea-party freshmen came to town, the Republican Party is now badly split.  Conservative Republicans were understandably nervous when the freshman took their seats in the House and Senate, but the hope was that they would remember the words of that eminent [...]

Secession is not an anti-American objective.

By Robert Ringer - Monday, August 1, 2011

In closing out my interview with my friend Judge Andrew Napolitano last week, I told him that I believe we are now in a virtual civil war in this country between those who believe in the sanctity of private property and those who believe it is the government’s duty to provide [...]

The One-Day Steve Wynn Story

By Robert Ringer - Sunday, July 31, 2011

Isn’t it amazing how Steve Wynn’s remarks about Barack Obama in a conference call with investors on July 18 was a one-day story? Among other things, Wynn, a Democrat, said, “… I’m saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business and progress and job creation in [...]

Has U.S. debt already been downgraded?

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, July 30, 2011

To the bitter end, Barack Obama and his socialist allies in Congress are determined to perpetuate the myth that if the U.S. doesn’t raise its debt ceiling, it runs the risk of being downgraded by Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s. I’ve yet to hear anyone on television talk about it, but [...]

The World’s Biggest Schmuck

By Robert Ringer - Friday, July 29, 2011

Jim DeMint, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Heritage Action (the political arm of the Heritage Foundation), and the Club for Growth, among others, have all registered their strong dissatisfaction with John Boehner’s sellout proposal for raising the debt ceiling. In all fairness, however, I have to admit that Boehner means well.  He’s [...]

Praise for Obama from Son of Saul

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, July 28, 2011

Thanks to Voice of Sanity reader Larry Shepherd for passing along a quote from Saul Alinsky’s son, L. David Alinsky, in a letter he wrote to the Boston Globe on August 31, 2008.  Following is an extended version of the quote Mr. Shepherd sent: “Barack Obama’s training in Chicago by the [...]

Dying Unnecessarily

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Try to imagine if just one person had been carrying a concealed weapon at Gabrielle Giffords’ gathering with her constituents in Tucson … or in all those classrooms that Seung-Hui Cho shot up at Virginia Tech … or at the Labour Party’s summer camp for youth activists in Norway … or, [...]

Is a 21-year sentence for a mass murderer really a sign of compassion?

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, July 26, 2011

When I visited Norway in the late eighties, I was awed by its beauty and tranquility.  Norway is the third richest country in the world on a per capita basis, and one of the cleanest.  But, unfortunately, Norwegians suffer from the same social maladies as all other European countries — a [...]

Are you an extremist on public education?

By Robert Ringer - Monday, July 25, 2011

It’s always dangerous to read The New York Times, but I subscribe to Don Corleone’s advice about keeping your friends close, but your enemies closer. That said, Nicholas D. Kristof’s recent op-ed piece in The New York Times about the need to raise the debt ceiling was a real doozy. Referring [...]

Is Allen West too much of a gentleman?

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, July 23, 2011

I can’t believe how everyone is making such a big deal out of Allen West’s recent comments to Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a personal e-mail.  In defending himself against her innuendos about him on the Congressional floor regarding cuts in Medicare, West wrote: “Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want [...]

A Sense of Desperation from Bachmann’s Detractors

By Robert Ringer - Friday, July 22, 2011

Coming on the heels of Bill Maher’s vile comments about Michele Bachmann, the hubbub over her migraine headaches pretty much makes it official that the media intends to Palinize her.  Which means that both her political and media detractors will be pulling out all stops to … well, stop her.  No [...]

Psychoanalyzing Naughty Bill Maher

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, July 21, 2011

With Bill Maher’s latest foul outbursts about Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin, it’s tempting to start thinking the unthinkable:  censorship.  Realistically, however, any libertarian or libertarian-centered conservative worth his salt knows that censorship is a slippery slope. Maher seems determined to outdo his mean-spirited competition in left-wing TV by pushing the [...]

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, July 20, 2011

We’ve become so used to having the World Heavyweight Lying Champion in the Oval Office that we sometimes forget that someone else who once held that title seemed invincible. But when his “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” whopper fell apart in the Zippergate Saga, the Arkansas Groper, [...]

My Latest Interview with Senator Jim DeMint, the Gentleman’s Gentleman

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Yesterday I again interviewed Senator Jim DeMint, one of a handful of unwavering freedom fighters in Congress, for the Liberty Education Interview Series.  He is determined to stop wayward Republicans from getting suckered punched again by Barack Obama and far-left Democrats. Senator DeMint is a gentleman’s gentleman, a political version of [...]

Are you ready for CNN Light at Fox News?

By Robert Ringer - Monday, July 18, 2011

Back in January 2010, I wrote an article titled “Fox News’s Liberal Future?” in which I described some of the infighting and politics going on among members of the Rupert Murdoch family. In that article, I pointed out that Murdoch’s eldest son, Lachlan, left the company in 2004, purportedly because he [...]

Wake up, Whoopi, and get the facts.

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, July 16, 2011

Whoopi Goldberg’s recent attack on Congresswoman Michele Bachmann for signing “The Marriage Vow” made for interesting theater, especially when Whoopi delicately shouted, “Dammit, I am sick of this crap.” “The Marriage Vow” originally had a clause in it (later removed) that stated: “Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet [...]

U.S. Treasuries Already Downgraded

By Robert Ringer - Friday, July 15, 2011

Few Americans realize it, because most of what they hear and read comes from the U.S. media — most of which is corrupt, and the remainder of which is clueless — but U.S. Treasury debt has already been downgraded.  Not by Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s, or Fitch, but by Dagong Global [...]

Peace is always easy to achieve — by surrender.

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, July 14, 2011

Michelle Bachman’s spine may be made of titanium, but clearly Mitch McConnell’s and John Boehner’s spines are made of cardboard tubes. As the Grand Old Party’s leadership RINOs continue to assure Barack Obama that, one way or another, victory on the debt-ceiling issue will be his, I am reminded of some [...]

Debt-ceiling Signal Already Sent by Useful Idiots

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, July 12, 2011

On Fox News Sunday, Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell assured Bret Baier that “no one in Congress is talking about not raising the debt ceiling.” Yes, he said a lot of good things before he made that comment, and a lot of good things after he made the comment.  But none [...]

What ever happened to the great planet healer?

By Robert Ringer - Monday, July 11, 2011

How quickly time passes.  Seems like yesterday that Barack Obama was giving his Democratic nomination victory speech in St. Paul, where he said, among other things: “… generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide [...]

The Dream Ticket: Bachmann and Cain

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, July 5, 2011

Well, Sean Hannity went and did it.  He came up with a quinella when he spent an entire hour interviewing Michele Bachmann, then Herman Cain.  Both Bachmann and Cain were dynamite, never missing a beat, never pausing to find their place on a teleprompter, never dancing around the issues.  Clearly, either [...]

Glenn Beck says bye-bye to the Beltway rules of etiquette.

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, July 2, 2011

On May 28, 2010, I wrote my first article speculating on Glenn Beck’s departure from Fox News.  In that article, I quoted Beck as saying, “The worst thing that can happen in my life is to lose my honor and to return to my Heavenly Father without honor — without doing [...]

Ben Stein, the World’s Most Devout Redistribution-of-Wealth Conservative

By Robert Ringer - Monday, June 27, 2011

On Neil Cavuto’s show last weekend, Ben Stein, the world’s most devout redistribution-of-wealth “conservative,” argued that the solution to our deficit is higher taxes on “the rich.”  This is an age-old theme that Beverly Hills Ben has been peddling for years while describing himself as a conservative on his numerous television [...]

How do you give away trillions in tax cuts?

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, June 23, 2011

In the phony debates about increasing the debt ceiling, my favorite talking-points line has become, “We’re giving away trillions of dollars in tax cuts.”  Of course, what the Democrats (and some Republicans) really mean by this is that if they don’t raise taxes on “the rich,” the government will have trillions [...]

Michelle Obama’s Latest Family Jaunt

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I hope you’re as excited as I am about Michelle Obama’s trip to South Africa and Botswana.  What a neat vacation not only for our hardworking First Lady, but for her mother, her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her brother Craig’s daughters, Leslie and Avery Robinson.  I tell you, like any [...]

The Love Birds: Boehner and Obama

By Robert Ringer - Saturday, June 18, 2011

As I watched a clip of Barack Obama playing golf for the seventy-third time since taking office — his latest outing with his new-found best friend John Boehner — a horrible thought occurred to me:  What if Obama is not just a Marxist intent on bringing down America, but an idiot [...]

A Revitalized and Determined Gingrich

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, June 16, 2011

Giving credit where credit is due, not only did Newt Gingrich perform well in the CNN debate Monday, he was outstanding on Greta last night.  He was upbeat, strong, openly anti-Obama, and, as always, in total command of the facts. In fact, if you knew absolutely nothing about Gingrich, you would [...]

Cursory Thoughts on CNN Republican Debate

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Perhaps the most striking aspect of CNN’s Republican presidential debate on Monday was that Gary Johnson — a former governor! — was not even allowed to get in the game.  It was, and is, an outrage.  With Ron Paul on stage, Johnson’s appearance would have meant that one-fourth of the Republican [...]

Cain Passes a Litmus Test

By Robert Ringer - Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Gary’s Johnson’s exclusion from CNN’s upcoming Republican presidential debate is yet another example of how corrupt the entire media-government complex is.  They had no choice but to include Ron Paul, but all of the networks will do whatever possible to marginalize him, then drop his numbers off your television screen as [...]

From Civil Unrest to Revolution?

By Robert Ringer - Tuesday, June 7, 2011

In The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels made it clear how a communist dictatorship would come about when they wrote: “In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but [...]
