Dan Cathy — shine this

Dan Cathy, former CEO of now-woke Chick-fil-A, was captured on video chastising White America for racism and saying the way forward was to find a Black person with dusty shoes and bend down and shine them. And then he did. He bent down, on camera, and shined a Black man's shoes. What a tool. Published June 1, 2023

Medical journal BMJ admits much of COVID data bogus

The medical journal BMJ wondered aloud -- this: "The pandemic turbocharged scientific publishing. While this was widely considered a collective triumph against a global threat, have the harms of pandemic publishing been overlooked?" And the answer that came back was a decided -- and horrific -- yes. Published June 1, 2023

Washington Nationals finally do something not sucky

As every good Boston fan knows, the Nationals suck. But finally, the team's got something worthy to note, and his name is Trevor Williams. Why? He dared take on the darlings of today's left: the LGBTQ loons. And he did so for love of God. Published May 31, 2023

‘Boycott Target’ rap hits iTunes high, as retail shares — happily! — plummet

Forgiato Blow and Jimmy Levy rapped out a ditty called "Boycott Target," Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted it out, and just a couple days later, it was hitting high-on-the-list status on iTunes and other music platforms -- while all the while, Target stock hit new lows. That's called the power of the people. Published May 30, 2023

A Bible sits open as Pastor Rick Mannon stands at the pulpit at Calvary Assembly of God in Wilson, Wis., Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022. Mannon's church is an outpost in the culture wars tearing at America, and a haven for people who feel shoved aside by a changing nation. Homosexuality is seen as dangerous here. Abortion is evil. The specter of one-world government looms. "If Christians don't get involved in politics, then we shouldn't have a say," Mannon says. "We can't just let evil win." (AP Photo/David Goldman)

America, the faithless: Only half in nation now certain God exists

The latest General Social Survey, conducted by NORC, the research arm of the University of Chicago, found only half of Americans say they're certain God exists. In a country where rights come from God, and government is only in place to protect those inherent birth rights and liberties, this finding spells doom. Published May 26, 2023

The city soon became home to Illinois' first anti-slavery society. (AP Photo/Shafkat Anowar) ** FILE **

Christian ‘pride’ is the answer to LGBTQ cultural madness

Time for Christians to take pride in their Christianity and go loud, go proud and go bold. If we want to win the war against warped, demonic forces that are reshaping our country into something very evil, then those who know the difference between right and wrong, between godly and ungodly, have to step up.

God looms large as 2024 election factor

Voters who wear their faith on their sleeves are looking for the next president to set religious freedom as a priority -- and they don't mind the next commander-in-chief being open about belief in God, either. Move over, Bill Clinton; today's phrase is now 'it's the religious freedom, stupid.' Published May 23, 2023

Joe Biden impeachment articles have merit

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene this week announced plans to file articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden because of his failures to enforce America's borders.

Bud Light — sorry: ‘Queer beer’ tag here to stay

Bud Light, facing massive consumer backlash for its brand partnership with pretend woman Dylan Mulvaney, has announced a redesign that drapes its cans in camouflage print -- an apparent tribute to a charity that benefits the children of fallen soldiers. Good charity. Bogus public relations move. Published May 18, 2023

Durham confirms: FBI targeted Trump for witch hunt

If Americans can't trust their federal law enforcement and investigative agencies to act in manners that protect the Constitution, then these agencies must be shattered and disposed of -- or at the very least, reorganized at leadership levels. Published May 16, 2023

Brittney Griner, post-Russia jailing, now loves America

Perhaps America should send all its young knee-bending, pig-sock-wearing, Hands Up, Don't Shoot displaying, Black Lives Matter slogan-slinging professional athletes to Russia for some good old-fashioned jail time. They leave hating America. They return respecting America. That's woke for ya. Published May 15, 2023

Fat people can fly! — and other delusions of Democrats

New York City Council members just passed a bill banning employers, public transportation officials and housing authorities from factoring in heights and weights of individuals as part of the decision making process for their various areas of jurisdiction.

Globalists are not done exploiting COVID, not by a long shot

COVID may have been taken off the emergency, emergency, emergency list. But it's still going to be used as a platform for bureaucrats to issue controls. And it just so happens, WHO just updated its COVID-19 Strategic Preparedness and Response Plan. How handy. How dandy. How top-down controlling. Published May 9, 2023

WHO’s ‘health equity’ will kill American liberty

The World Health Organization pushed for "renewed action on health equity," a phrase the bureaucrats like to sling to divide people by classes -- the haves versus have nots -- and then to exploit by fostering the anger of the have nots to grow government's power as provider. Published May 5, 2023

HHS Xavier Becerra makes play to destroy 2nd Amendment

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra reportedly called gun violence, in the aftermath of an Atlanta shooting, a "public health crisis" -- a label the left has been trying to affix for some time so as to sidestep the Constitution and put the Second Amendment in the hands of medical bureaucrats to control.
