Chuck Norris: Resolve to conquer or die

When President Barack Obama was reelected, the winds waned behind many patriots’ ships’ sails. My wife, Gena, and I felt that sock in the gut for our country and posterity, too. But instead of cowering in defeat, I believe we need to discard conventional (unsuccessful) strategies and advance in new directions. The future of our […]

Chuck Norris: Obamacare jiujitsu

The art of jiujitsu is to use an opponent’s weight and strength to your advantage. I believe we can further choke the life out of Obamacare by using this martial art technique. Let me explain. Last week, I shared with you that while Republicans’ power to repeal Obamacare has been thwarted by the president’s reelection, […]

Chuck Norris: Choke the life out of Obamacare

Now that Obama has been re-elected and Democrats still control the Senate, Republicans no longer have the chance to repeal Obamacare. But all is not lost. There’s still an opportunity for America to stop this disaster by choking the life out of the federal monstrosity. Obama’s signature legislative achievement is likely headed back to the […]

Chuck Norris: The horrors of FEMA disaster ‘relief’

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’” — President Ronald Reagan Those wise and yet haunting words spoken by one of our nation’s greatest presidents couldn’t ring more true — especially today, as winter sets in on an estimated 130,000 of our fellow Americans […]

Chuck Norris: Barack Obama, spin master

The definition of spin is to apply a slant or particular emphasis to information, as to persuade or deceive. President Barack Obama really has been pounding the pulpit the past few days, with the election right around the corner, with the help of his speechwriters. He sounds a lot like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. About […]

Chuck Norris: ‘Fast and Furious’ whitewash by Justice Department

Sometimes, as the saying goes, the truth really is stranger than fiction. There may have been some wild plotlines on “Walker, Texas Ranger,” but there was nothing that compares to the scandal surrounding “Fast and Furious” — the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation that resulted in the loss of a distinguished Border […]

Chuck Norris: GOP creating fuel for Obama

Casey Stengel, a baseball legend who played on five teams and managed four, said: “It’s easy to get good players. Getting them to play together, that’s the hard part.” What’s true in sports is definitely true in politics — even more so. Many say that ’tis the season for GOP rivalry, but when does inference turn […]

Chuck Norris: Eight miracles that saved America?

As I recently tweeted (@chucknorris), I read through the book “The Miracle of Freedom: Seven Tipping Points that Saved the World,” by Chris and Ted Stewart. I highly recommend it. Immediately afterward, I started reading their other book, “Seven Miracles That Saved America,” and I have been equally inspired by it. But it has prompted […]

Chuck Norris: Bill Clinton is right

While Democrats and Republicans struggle to make headway in debt- and deficit-reduction talks in Washington, former President Bill Clinton pontificated in a recent issue of Newsweek about his own solutions for our sluggish economy. I don’t agree with all of Clinton’s “14 ways to put America back to work,” but I definitely believe he’s right […]

Chuck Norris: The self-destructing Republican Party?

If the Wall Street Republicans and the conservative Republicans don’t resolve their differences and work as a TEAM (“together everyone achieves more”), we will go back to having a Democratic majority in Congress and President Barack Obama will be re-elected for another four years. Ripples began to form last year when then Republican Senate candidate […]

Chuck Norris: U.S. Shariah infiltrations

While all eyes this week are on London’s royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton, my eyes are on an opening statement from the U.K.’s Daily Mail Reporter: “Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing (Shariah) on parts of Britain.” Of course, […]

Chuck Norris: Barbara Bush — ‘No more, you’re killing us

Former first lady Barbara Bush said on Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record” this past week: “We’ve got a real problem in public schools. … This is a national crisis. It’s as bad as anything in our country.” When Van Susteren was pointing out from Bush’s own op-ed piece that “Texas (is) 36th in the […]

Chuck Norris: Obama vs. Reagan

I must commend President Barack Obama for getting closer this year to conveying the true message of Christmas. But how does that saying go, “Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades”? This time last year, President Obama botched his yuletide yodels. Preceding presidents took pride in America’s Judeo-Christian and Christmas heritage, but President Obama […]

Chuck Norris: A leader we all can follow

William Bradford, governor of the Plymouth Colony, was a remarkable leader who endured much from Europe to the coastal regions of North America. Born in 1590 in a small farming town in England, he was only 1 year old when his father died, 4 when his grandparents took over his guardianship, 6 when his grandfather […]

Chuck Norris: Nothing certain except death and a FairTax

Every week we receive more bad news about the American economy. Last week was no exception. The Fed began monetizing the national debt, while China’s gross domestic product for the third quarter expanded 8.9 percent from the previous quarter, Dagong (the Chinese quasi-government ratings agency) downgraded the credit rating of the United States, and billionaire […]
