THE VICE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE: Two Candidates One Vision

For about an hour, America got to see two contrasting candidates on the debate floor in Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.  Yes, Susan Page, the journalist and biographer playing moderator, demonstrated her bias against the Vice President.  And yes, the questions were skewed to favor opinions coming from the Left, but overall the moderator […]

A Weekend That Harrowed.

 Not since 1963 did America realistically face the possibility that its President could be dying.  Of course, back then, President John F. Kennedy was truly killed, and the shockwaves of the news gripped the world, sending it into mourning and disbelief.

The Single, Most-Important Book on Healthcare Today!

It was after World War II.  The United States had just guaranteed the continuation of a free society.  No country could hold a candle to its productivity, its creativity, its strength, or its wealth.

The Lack Of Constitutional Standing For Interstate Quarantines

You can’t order quarantines forever, and at some point a state of medical emergency becomes a new reality. In an article last updated yesterday, The Wall Street Journal reported that New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut have instituted a mandate requiring travelers from states they designate as “experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases,” to observe a 14-day […]

A Physician Investigates: Should You Take Hydroxychloroquine?

A controversy has arisen regarding the utility of using chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

On the other, some advocate for the aggressive […]

The Real Reason For Hospital Shortages In The United States

An article published by the Kaiser Family Foundation on Wednesday showed the United States ranked eleventh in the world in per capita distribution of hospitals.  That article pointed out that the United States had a “lower hospital density than almost all comparable countries.” Predictably, there are a slew of other hospital-related resources in which the United […]

Republican-Run Florida Is Pushing Vaping Ban?

As of this writing, the Florida Legislature is considering bills that would prohibit adult Floridians over the age of 18 from purchasing non-combustible nicotine products or nicotine dispensing products (“vapors”). The legislation may include an artificial definition of these products as “tobacco.”  Such a move would be in error. As conservatives, we demand that government’s intrusions […]

On Monday, while flanked by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald J. Trump reversed decades of foreign policy by declaring that the United States was recognizing Israel’s autonomy over the Golan Heights.

Democrats SHOULD Remain Seated; The Rest Of Us Will Choose Greatness

I must admit I’ve become disenchanted with the State of The Union Address. I guess it began with Obama’s presidency. I found him so repulsive and dishonest that I couldn’t stand to listen. When President Trump took office, naturally, my enthusiasm over the State of the Union Address blossomed once again. But even still, I […]

The President’s Unconventional Path To A Wall And Electoral Victory

On Friday, relatively unexpectedly, President Trump announced a deal that would temporarily end the partial federal government shutdown. Under the terms of the deal, Congress would pass a continuing resolution funding the government for three weeks.

Venezuela: A Case Study On What Happens When Gun Rights Are Trampled.

With all deference to hunters and sportsmen, it wasn’t their right to hunt that inspired James Madison and our nation’s First Congress to include the Second Amendment in their proposed Bill of Rights.  There’s was a much greater concern, that of checking the power of a potentially tyrannical state.  The modern left dismisses this argument as nonsensical, […]
