The anti-Kavanaugh, anti-Trump money trails

My gosh, but the left has got itself in a tizzy. A desperate tizzy, to be more accurate. A desperate, costly tizzy that pulls out all the funding stops, to be even more accurate. The money trail is never wrong. Published September 20, 2018

Brett Kavanaugh should stay the course, stand strong

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court hearings have devolved into a cesspool of she-said, her-attorney-said accusations -- and from that, Democrats have run roughshod, demanding a postponement and wait for it, wait for it, killing of the entire nomination. Published September 19, 2018

Keith Ellison domestic abuse accuser sends Dems much-needed smackdown

The Democrats may think they're about to sink their shark teeth deep into Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, via an out-of-left-field sexual assault allegation from a woman, Christine Blasey Ford, touting a decades-old high school party story. But here's a "hey you guys" moment from none other than the woman who accused Keith Ellison of -- get this -- domestic abuse. And who has supporting statements and medical records to prove it.

Eric Holder, back with an anti-Trump bluster

Eric Holder came forward at a recent Human Rights Campaign dinner to say, shock of all shocks, President Donald Trump is a fear-mongering disaster who's busily selling so-called patriotic lines to like-minded bigots as part of a desperate political ploy to keep ahold of his White House power. Yawn. This is Holder's whole schtick Published September 17, 2018

Brett Kavanaugh getting raked over high school coals

Democrats have scored a big one with their latest on Brett Kavanaugh, going all the way back to high school to give voice to a female who's weighing in, mid-#MeToo movement time, no less, with some scathing accusations that the Supreme Court nominee, in his teen years, once pinned her to a bed at a party.

Lefty psychologists' shenanigans

Gina Loudon -- author of a new book that she said on Fox News would show with "science and real data and true psychological theory" why Donald Trump is one of the most "sound-minded" presidents of all time -- has unleashed a hornet's nest of liberal outcry, most notably from the therapists of the nation.

David Hogg, the headache that keeps on coming

David Hogg, the teenage Parkland-shooting-sufferer-turned-political activist, took to Twitter to call out U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley as an audacious failure who ought to resign her post pronto. If only Hogg's reasoning were sound, maybe he wouldn't be such a headache. Published September 14, 2018

CNN poll admits 'Impeach Trump' short on facts

A new poll from CNN found: Most Americans just don't think there's enough evidence there to impeach President Donald Trump. The heck you say. Nope. It's true. Even pollsters serving the mainstream media gods couldn't sell this one. Published September 14, 2018

Ann Coulter: Jared Kushner penned NYT op-ed

Ann Coulter, conservative columnist, said in a recent interview with the Daily Beast that Jared Kushner, son-in-law to Donald Trump, is the one who penned the anonymously published presidential hatchet job in The New York Times.

New York City's new genderless abomination

Members of the New York City Council and Board of Health voted to add a third gender category to birth certificates -- "X" -- beginning in 2019. With a stroke of a pen, confusion prevails.

Google video highlights hubris of left

A newly revealed video from 2016 of Google executives pining about the just-elected Donald Trump and vowing to take whatever steps necessary to "educate" the American people in the way they should go is a blunt reminder of just how stupid Democrats think we are, and how smart they think they are.

Barack Obama, the GOP thanks you

Barack Obama's return to national television may have jarred -- particularly the channel surfing crowd, but also the patriotic types who spent the eight years of the previous administration crossing off "Days Left" on their calendars.

Trump's tough love plan for Mideast peace shutting PLO-D.C. office

Here's a headline that would never be seen in the prior Barack Obama administration days: White House to shutter Palestinian Liberation Organization office in Washington, D.C.

Google's leftist gaggle: 90 percent of employee donations are for Dems

Roughly 90 percent of political donations made by Alphabet employees -- those who work for Google, YouTube, Verily, and the handful of other companies owned by the tech giant -- have gone, between the years 2004 and 2018, to Democratic pockets. Well, well, well, Houston we have a problem. Just in case there's any doubt the tech giant leans left -- here's the proof, in numbers. Published September 8, 2018
