The Ron Paulbarians Are At GOP’s Gate

The Nevada Republican Party convention this month was pretty much like every other GOP convention: Floor arguments over obscure Robert’s Rules of Order, bylaws and credentials. Lots of proverbial sound and fury signifying nothing. Only this year, on steroids. The convention was fairly evenly split between Mitt Romney supporters and party loyalists vs. Ron Paul supporters and many tea party activists – with the insurgents enjoying a sufficient majority to not only elect 22 out […]

Obama’s Grasp Of Reality Thin And Slipping

(Fred Weinberg/The Penny Press) – I’m not like Rush Limbaugh. No matter how much I disagree with a sitting President, I would never wish for his failure in public. In fact, I said on January 20, 2009 and still believe that anybody who watched the inauguration and didn’t have just a little bit of a lump in their throat just doesn’t understand that America truly is the land of unlimited opportunity. But I’m not going […]

Nevada Caucus Process Flawed, But Does Have Good Points

(Jim Clark) – The nattering and complaining about the recent Nevada GOP presidential preference caucus just won’t die down.  East coast newspapers, such as the Washington Times, are now comparing the Nevada caucuses to Iowa’s and the latter’s failure to accurately report a winner.  Local Nevada news media are full of expressions by individuals condemning the caucus system and demanding return to a presidential primary election.  Slow down, folks.  Let’s examine the facts.  Complaints center […]
