Joe Biden’s red energy plan

Red flag laws will lead to gun confiscations

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. Published June 23, 2022

J.Lo jumps the shark on LGBTQ

Jennifer Lopez introduced her daughter Emme at a recent Los Angeles event as "they" and "them" -- confusing listeners and next-day media readers, while also advancing an agenda that is sheer lunacy and, truth be told, abusive to children. Enough of the normalization of mental disorders. Published June 21, 2022

France sees a ‘France First’ voting moment

France's conservative faction just scored big in recent legislative elections, setting President Emmanuel Macron and his leftist agenda on notice and saying, in essence, the people don't want no stinkin' socialist economy. Take note, Democrats. This is you, come November. Published June 20, 2022

Bill Gates wants $1 billion annually to prevent next pandemic

EDS NOTE: OBSCENITY - Abortion-rights protesters Greg Piteo, left, and Maeve Bradley, hold up signs during a demonstration outside of the U.S. Supreme Court, Saturday, May 7, 2022, in Washington. A draft opinion suggests the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a Politico report released Monday. Whatever the outcome, the Politico report represents an extremely rare breach of the court's secretive deliberation process, and on a case of surpassing importance. (AP Photo/Amanda Andrade-Rhoades)

Pro-abortion nuts ratchet nuttiness

An armed man carrying a handgun, knife and pepper spray was arrested near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to media reports, he then told police he was there to kill Kavanaugh. Democrats would call this "exercising one's First Amendment" right. Published June 8, 2022

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin greets supporters after partial election returns showed him being recalled by voters on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, in San Francisco. Recall proponents say Boudin's policies have made San Francisco less safe. (AP Photo/Noah Berger)

Chesa Boudin bites the dust, but to Democrats, he’s just a blip

San Francisco voters ousted soft-on-crime Chesa Boudin in a recall election that wrapped with such wide margins, the message is hard to mistake: Even Democrat-dominated districts don't like thieves and murderers within their midsts. But how long will this attitude last? Published June 8, 2022

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin poses at his campaign headquarters in San Francisco, on May 26, 2022. Politically liberal San Francisco could vote out one of the most progressive prosecutors in the country nearly three years after he was elected. Boudin's time in office coincided with a pandemic in which brutal attacks against Asian seniors and viral footage of rampant shoplifting fueled a rare campaign to remove him.

Democrats feeling the folly of George Soros-tied district attorneys

Democrats are starting to feel the effects of this George Soros-funded and far-left "Let the Looters Be Looters and Loot" type of justice system. Democrats are becoming the victims. And they don't like it -- no, they don't like it one little bit. Published June 6, 2022

George Soros primes super PAC to buy 2022 midterms

The nonprofit money-in-politics tracker OpenSecrets just reported "Democratic mega-donor George Soros is currently the top individual super PAC donor for the 2022 midterm election." How tragic. George Soros regularly interferes in elections in which he has no personal stake. Published June 4, 2022

Democrats ignore root causes of gun crime on purpose

Democrats know their bluster, grandstanding and political posturing about gun control is just that -- bluster, grandstanding and political posturing. Dems know they can't disarm criminals by passing more gun control laws. So they push for more restrictions on those who obey laws. Published May 31, 2022

School shootings are a symptom of a godless society

If Democrats truly cared about gun-related violence, and wanted to save kids from future school shootings, they would address the heart of such matters: which is to say, they would look to the evil nature of human hearts and endeavor to drive out that evil by godly means. Published May 28, 2022

Another socialist masquerading as Democrat runs for Congress

Bill Gates just came out with a new book called "How To Prevent The Next Pandemic," describing his vision to do just that. Wake up. Rise up. This is a plan for total global dominance over the health of the human race. It's socialism, communism, collectivism. Published May 17, 2022
