Lonely Days and Lonely Knights: OC Resident Dr. Drew Was Once a MA Republican Political Science Professor

Image
Republican Scott Brown's victory in MA is especially gratifying to me because I was once a resident of Massachusetts and active in Republican party politics.

As you may know, I was a young assistant professor at Williams College in MA between 1986 and 1989. While I was there, Williams College had the reputation of being the number one liberal arts college in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report.


As  an assistant professor, I was only one of three registered Republicans on the faculty. While I was there, I was friendly with two of the socialist professors who shaped the early intellectual life of Barack Obama while he was at Occidental College in Los Angeles - Professors Roger Boesche and Carlos Egan. I had known both Boesche and Egan when they were political science professors at Occidental College, my undergraduate institution.

Personally, I witnessed the damage caused by affirmative action face-to-face as objectively more qualified white faculty candidates were d…

Victory Over Obama - Peace at Last: The Meaning of Scott Brown's Victory in MA

Image
The good news is the Obama administration has helped at least three people get new jobs, one each in VA, NJ, and now MA...

On a more serious note, it is clear that Scott Brown's triumphant entry into Washington, D.C. symbolized the collapse of one of the most powerful Presidential terms in U.S. history. Very rarely does an energetic new President come to office in complete control of both houses of Congress. Brown's startling victory, however, marks the end of the Obama revolution.

The Supreme Court also timed things perfectly driving a nail in the Obama administration's Marxist socialist fantasies. It's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, overruled two precedents: Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce, a 1990 decision that upheld restrictions on corporate spending to support or oppose political candidates, and McConnell v. Federal Election Commission, a 2003 decision that upheld the part of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 that restr…

America Rising - Why We Fight: Quick Thoughts on the Significance of the Brown - Coakley MA Senate Contest

Reviewing the available polls, I think Scott Brown's victory in MA on January 19, 2010 will turn on how the people feel about federal health care reform. Clearly, voters in MA - from all political parties - are offended by the secret, behind-the-scenes negotiations, negotiations in which the average American is sacrificed to benefit big government, big business, and big international labor.



As Brown asserts, we can do better than ObamaCare. Brown will, in all likelihood, serve as the 41st vote to send health care reform back to the drawing board. I expect a revised, bipartisan initiative would allow tougher competition, more personal control, and greater choices for consumers. Meanwhile, I have no doubt that Brown's come-from-behind victory will be historically significant, it will stand in history as a defining moment when even Democrat decided they have had enough of Obama's dangerous Marxist socialist agenda.

Victory is Near: Scott Brown Cuts into Soft Underbelly of MA Democrat Party

If Scott Brown becomes the next Senator from MA it will be a victory of historic significance for the GOP and - according to Newt Gingrich - the death of health care reform.



Personally, I've done what ever I could to help Brown including mentioning him in my Tweets and spreading the address of a site that provides him with secure on-line donations. See, http://www.brownforussenate.com/Apparently, we was able to raise about $1.3 million dollars, on-line, in just one day.

I thought he was a long-shot until I saw one poll showing him ahead by one-point among likely voters. The most accurate view of the race probably comes from Scott Rasmussen. Rasmussen Reports shows Brown trailing his Democrat challenger by only two percentage points. If Rasmussen only counts those who are expressing virtual certainty that they will vote on Tuesday, then Brown wins by one percentage point.

The bottom line is that Brown's opponent ran way to the left of her primary challengers. She expresses the sor…

Reviewing a Close Call: Obama Administration Discovers Islamic Terrorism

Image
One of the most annoying things about Janet Napolitano was her belief that guys like me are among the top security threats to our nation because of our conservative views, Constitutional perspective, and commitment to various "single issue" causes. Now, however, it looks like the predictions that Obama's approach to terrorism would make us safer have all been proven wrong.

In this regard, I think it is entirely fair, and important, to point out that the recent terrorist attacks during the first year of the Obama administration can all be traced to its overly optimistic trust of devout Muslims. This is the common theme that runs through accounts of the Ft. Hood shooter, the panty bomber and the CIA base attack. As far as I can tell, participants in the Obama administration are so committed to their politically correct point of view that they don't understand that religious books have real world consequences.

Unfortunately for the Democrat party, Umar Farouk Abdulmutalla…
