Despicable Disney Tours

I'm going a little off political topic and on to the topic of Disney on this one. Came across this story on Drudge this week - there is a tour guide company that offers 'black-market' VIP tours of Disney led by a handicapped person.

The Eyes of Texas

Had some professional commitments, which have kept me from blogging, as well as a little travel; some of which I will tell you about today! At the end of April, I had the pleasure of taking my first trip to Texas, specifically, San Antonio and Austin, to attend the Young Republican National Federation's Spring Quarterly.

Disney's Animal Kingdom at 15

On Earth Day, April 22nd, 15 years ago, the forth theme park opened at Walt Disney World – Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Inspired by Walt Disney’s longtime wish to have live animals in his theme parks, combined with the success in the 1990s of The Lion King, Animal Kingdom broke new ground in the theme park world, as well as in the zoological world.

Premature Blame for Boston

As the Boston Marathon Bombing is being investigated, many people are looking to assess blame before we know the identity of the perpetrator(s).

Let me be the one to express that we must be patient and let the investigation work its way through before we prematurely blame anyone. Sadly, there are some on the left, and in the media, not willing to follow this, hoping for and placing blame on domestic, right wing sources; making connections to tax day (the day the bombing took place) the bombing of the Murra Building in Oklahoma City, which occurred on April 19, 1995, as well as the TEA Party, which has consistently been a source of ridicule and false accusations among those in the Obama Administration. Sadly, this act of attempting to assess blame goes all the way to the top and is clearly nothing more than the Rahm Emanuel, Saul Alinsky way of diverting the discussion and taking political advantage of the situation. People died in the Back Bay section of Boston that day and to take political advantage of those dead and those wounded is a travesty!

As I previously said, we must assume the worst before we can hope for the best in order to protect against future attacks. But in the meantime, we must be patient, let the investigation take its course, analyze every bit of evidence from this case (and there already seems to be a lot) and be vigilant of those trying to hide information or take political advantage of the situation. It is the honorable thing to do not only for Americans so they can get answers, but for those who were killed or wounded on Monday.

So God Made a Patriot

While surfing around on the Internet tonight, I came across a very moving video called "So God Made a Patriot." Narrated by former Senator and presidential candidate Fred Thompson and based on the Paul Harvey Super Bowl ad, the nearly 5 minute video is a reminder to Americans not only about what makes a patriot, but what makes an American: sacrifice, hard work and resolve; all in the defense of liberty and freedom.

Thoughts on the Patriots Day Bombing

Every year on the third Monday in Massachusetts, Patriots Day is celebrated, which signifies the Revolutionary War Battles of Lexington and Concord; the battles that opened the American Revolution. What has become tradition in recent years in the running of the Boston Marathon on Patriots’ Day. Yesterday’s running, unfortunately, will forever be known for the fact that two bombs went off along Boylston Street in Boston; close to the finish line of the marathon and at about the time when most of the runners were completing the race.

Remembering Baroness Margaret Thatcher 1925-2013

I’m a week late on this one, but with last week’s passing of former British Prime Minister, Baroness Margaret Thatcher, one cannot forget about her contributions to British society and the world in general.

Updates and Happenings

No worries, my loyal readers...I'm still here! It's been a heck of a couple of weeks since CPAC. Thankfully, I did not come down with #CPACPlague, but I did get sick after the Middlesex County (NJ) Ballot Convention; likely when I was in the crowd to meet Governor Christie. It took a while, but I'm past this and am back here to blog!

I also did a radio interview with my Georgia friend Greg Williams. We talked about CPAC, Christie and cultural differences between the North and South. Once the audio file becomes available, I will gladly post it here.

You can still find me on Save Jersey as well. My piece about New Jersey Reagan Day is pending.

Thank you all for sticking by me...I'm back!

The Chris Christie CPAC Snub That Wasn't

Today, my next piece for Save Jersey went live and it dealt with my governor.

Ted Cruz Taking Washington By Storm

For the past two weeks, the newly elected Junior Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz, has taken Washington by storm, showing he is a consistent Conservative and practicing the method of No Fear; all with an effective media savvy that some veterans of Washington, in the Republican Party, do not possess.

Sarah is Back

It drives her detractors crazy, it makes her supporters love her even more, but Sarah Palin has returned to speak at CPAC 2013.

Rand Paul vs. the Beltway Mentality

As I said this week, Rand Paul's filibuster has been quite the influential moment in Washington, and from the reaction it's getting otuside the Beltway, the energy exhibited by the Junior Senator from Kentucky is spreading! Not everybody, apparently in Washington is happy.

I Stand with Rand: The Filibuster

It has been quite a newsworthy day in Washington DC today! Thinking they were facing a storm that would bring them lots of snow, they are now facing a storm of discontent, thanks to the Rand Paul filibuster!

A Dead Dictator

In 1996, I had the opportunity to travel to the nation of Venezuela. Pictured above is the view from our hotel room on Margarita Island. It is a beautiful country with a friendly people, warm climate, multitude of tourist sites and potential for economic growth. In 1999, its government was taken over by a cancer named Hugo Chavez and today, cancer has taken the life of the cancer.

In the Huckabee Audience

Living near New York City and being a fan of Fox News Channel, there is always the opportunity to be a part of their studio audience or even interact on-air with them! Last Saturday, I had the repeated pleasure of being a studio audience member of Mike Huckabee's weekend show on the Fox News Channel!

Leftists on Hannity Create a Stir

While watching Hannity on Tuesday, I was quite caught off guard by the blatant ignorance and offensive nature of two guests Sean had on his show.

Remembering Ronald Reagan

Over the three day weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a local Reagan Day luncheon to honor our 40th President, who would have been 102 years old this month. (Pictured above is NJ Assemblyman Jay Webber.)

#Rubio-ing: In Support of Marco

Last Tuesday, Barack Obama gave his fifth State of the Union address. No news in that, as that speech was a lot more of the same: big government rules, Republicans are to blame and I'm here to help everyone. (except Americans who need jobs) The big news came after the speech when Marco Rubio gave the Republican response.

Pope Benedict XVI Resignation

This morning the Catholic world, and world in general, was rocked with news that came out of the Vatican. Pope Benedict XVI has decided to call it quits, resigning his post as of February 28, 2013.

Dr. Benjamin Carson at the Prayer Breakfast

Last week, noted neurosurgeon, Dr. Benjamin Carson, gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, in front of President Obama.

Pulling Back the Curtain of Media Bias

This week, Steve Kroft appeared on Piers Morgan's CNN show (and nobody would have seen it if there was no Internet) and dropped a bomb about the president's frequent visits to 60 Minutes.

Challenger: 27 Years Later

Bibi Wins

Good news out of Israel - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been re-elected and will begin a third term; becoming the longest serving Prime Minister in Israeli history!

Inauguration Day, aka Hump Day

As a result of receiving 51% of the vote and a majority of the Electoral Votes in November, Barack Obama was Inaugurated and began his second term. As per the 20th Amendment of the US Constitution, he was sworn in on January 20th in a Blue Room ceremony, and because it fell on a Sunday, the public ceremony on the West Front of the US Capitol took place on Monday.

GOP: Just Do It

The Republican Party is heading to their annual retreat in Williamsburg, VA, where they will meet to plan ahead, the future of their agenda and the future of their party. We're starting to hear about it in the news, we're starting to hear plans discussed before their implemented. I have some advice that can be summed up in three masterful words created by a late 1980s/1990s Nike Ad campaign: Just Do It!

John Fund on American Politics

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting and seeing John Fund speak. Fund is a columnist and reporter for the National Review who is also an expert on election fraud.

The Obama Crusade against the 2nd Amendment

Nothing new in this, but today, we saw the President using American children as props when he decided to, again, go around the Constitution and Congress, signing Executive Orders to attack the 2nd Amendment.

Thoughts on Zero Dark Thirty

Last night, I saw the film that has been the focus of discussion, for months, in American political circles: Zero Dark Thirty. If you haven't seen it yet, here is the trailer:

Ted Cruz: A Soon to be Rising Star!

The Senate may have lost Jim DeMint, who recently resigned to head the Heritage Foundation, but we have some great Conservatives who will continue his fight on Capitol Hill in that body. One such was just elected to the US Senate this fall by the state of Texas: Ted Cruz! This weekend, he appeared on Fox News Sunday, interviewed by John Roberts, who was sitting in for Wallace.

Janeane Garfalo Attacks Joel Surnow and 24

I honestly get a nails on a chalkboard cringe whenever I hear Janeane Garafalo speak, and today, it happened again.

Al Gore = Sellout

You probably didn't know because you never saw it (less people have than MSNBC), but Al Gore has a television station called Current TV. After about 10 years, he realized it's a failure, so he sold it.

Left Irresponsibly Going After Guns

Since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the left has taken the message of Rahm Emanuel and has amped up their rhetoric in attacking the Second Amendment. This week, they went too far.

Republicans and the Fiscal Cliff

For the past few months, we have been constantly hearing about the fiscal cliff and January 1, 2013. The day had come and gone and leadership caved.
