It is widely acknowledged by many Americans, regardless of ideological bent, or religious affiliation, that our nation is in deep trouble. While America has encountered significant challenges over its 240 year history, never before has it faced so many self-inflicted wounds that pose such serious if not lethal threats to our nation.
I do not underestimate the monumental perils our nation faced during our civil war or even World War II. But the threats of today are different, and perhaps Read more [...]
It was another quiet, sunny day in beautiful Chattanooga, affectionally known as “Scenic City” Tennessee. Just a few weeks earlier our city with such charm and character was voted “Best Town Ever” by hundreds of thousands of Americans. And yet, on the morning of July 16 at 10:45 the peace in our city was tragically shattered in a sudden and violent manner. In the moments that followed, our city was drawn into a worldwide battle between good and evil. Previous to July 16, our sleepy Read more [...]
On this Memorial Day, our collective thoughts as Americans turn to those men and women throughout the history of our nation who gave their all so that we might continue to enjoy the "blessings of liberty." Whether those unselfish patriots laid down their lives in 1776 as a result of "the shot heard 'round the world" or perhaps more recently as our fellow citizens gave their lives half way around the world, there is no greater act of love, sacrifice or commitment than the one they demonstrated.

I am growing sick, tired and saddened over the aggressive discrimination, attacks and overt bigotry towards Christians and those who hold to an orthodox theology that has been in place for over 5,000 years that defines marriage as between one man and one woman. Up until a few years ago, this orthodox view was (and perhaps still is) mainstream in America. (And for the record, holding to the orthodox view of marriage is not akin to slavery or racism, so please don't even devolve to such a silly Read more [...]
As someone whose first vote was for Ronald Reagan in 1980, I can honestly say that I have consistently sought after the most conservative candidate I could find, but all too often I found myself voting for the lesser of two evils.
But in 2009 the political landscape changed. When the Republicans could only muster up a miserable option by the name of John McCain to run against a socialist-Marxist by the name of Barack Obama, tens of millions of grassroots Americans said enough is enough.
The Read more [...]
There is not much that has elicited such a divide and strong emotion for many residents of Chattanooga as the Domestic Partnership Ordinance. Last November it narrowly passed by a city council vote of 5-4 but it was immediately blocked when a Petition was signed by over 11,000 voters. As a result it is up to Chattanooga voters on August 7 to decide whether to pass or permanently defeat the ordinance that would extend health benefits to city employee’s girlfriends and boyfriends (either same-sex Read more [...]
If you’re a Conservative, Mike Huckabee wants to fight you.
Yep, if you consider yourself a bonafide conservative then tough guy and former Governor Mike Huckabee has challenged you to a duel. No not literally, at least I don’t think so. But he did come out this week with a challenge. In what is now becoming a routine intervention every couple years by Mike Huckabee into Tennessee politics, the former Governor turned entertainer has plastered his face and voice across the Tennessee airwaves, Read more [...]

Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's devastating loss this week by little known University Professor Dave Brat sent shockwaves throughout the nation. Democrats and Republicans alike were taken back by such an upset. No doubt pundits will dissect and analyze this phenomena for weeks to come.
But what does an election in a congressional district hundreds of miles away from Tennessee mean to you and me?
Are there any lessons for us to learn here in Chattanooga and across the Volunteer Read more [...]
As Americans we speak frequently of Liberty. In fact, since the founding of our nation, Liberty has been a part of the DNA of patriots who demonstrated this unalienable right, one for which many have sacrificed their lives, fortunes and sacred honor.
Last week I had the honor of visiting Cliven and Carol Bundy, a couple that not only stand for Liberty but in standing they live and exhibit Liberty. I was privileged to meet them at the Bundy Ranch in Riverside, Nevada below the Virgin Mountain Read more [...]
