Biden’s lost touch with reality

The national average gas price is $4.86, more than double the $2.39 when President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021. Prices have been steadily rising daily, even hourly, with experts anticipating $5 this week and $6 by the end of the summer. Last week, a young mother stopped at a gas station to breastfeed her baby on a road trip (luckily, she didn’t need formula because she likely wouldn’t have been able to find it anywhere) and noticed that the price of gas increased just in the time she sat feeding her baby. She wished she had filled up when she first pulled in rather than after feeding her crying baby.

The Washington Times factor in Pyongyang’s first suspension of ‘Hate America’ Month

June 25th marks the seventy-second anniversary of Pyongyang’s military invasion of South Korea. For North Koreans, June 25th also opens their annual “Hate America Month” which lasts until July 27, the anniversary of the 1953 signing of the Armistice that ended the Korean War. During “Hate America Month” North Koreans elevate their denunciations of the United States for past atrocities and our alleged ongoing “occupation” of South Korea.

Voters will now decide abortion rights

Today’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade is NOT a national ban on abortion. This fact will assuredly come as a shock to most Americans — only 36 % of whom actually know abortion will not suddenly become illegal.

How the pro-life movement is winning

FOLLOW THE SCIENCE becomes follow the politics. People scream “Science!” when it comes to a paper mask on a five-year-old’s face to prevent the spread of a global pandemic, but not when it comes to a sonogram of a five-month-old baby showing a clear image of a human life, the baby’s gender, heartbeat, and limbs.

Why the left will cut Biden loose

Republican pundits and conservative activists are debating whether they can win in 2024 with the successful Trump agenda but without the controversial former President Donald Trump as their nominee.

Red flag laws will lead to gun confiscations

- The Washington Times

Gun control legislation is winding through the Senate, largely on the wings of Democrats but floated, too, by a dozen or so Republicans who’ve seen fit to sign on to red flag laws.These Republicans are politically misstepping. Republicans have no business supporting red flag laws.

Juneteenth v. July 4

Juneteenth is possible because of Independence Day. The radicals pushing the 1619 Project and critical race theory would likely beg to differ with this statement, but the facts make a compelling case.
