Anthony Fauci has no idea about America

Anthony Fauci is that special breed of bureaucrat that thinks those citizens who pay his salary are peons. He thinks the Constitution is a piece of paper, nothing more, and that "God-given rights" is a phrase slung by right-wing conspiracists who have no place in modern America. Published April 23, 2022

Barack Obama sows seeds of government controlled speech

Barack Obama has resurfaced on the speaking stage to campaign against free speech and for government controls. He doesn't frame it that way, of course. Like most globalist groupthink bureaucrats, he disguises his intents with softer phrases packaged as concern for the people. Published April 22, 2022

Democrats’ dance with face mask stupid

Supreme Court has no real right to rule on prayer

The crime of praying. In America? In a nation founded on a quest for religious freedom, forged on Judeo-Christian principles and raised to a state of exceptionalism on a concept of individual rights coming from God, not government -- is there really such a thing as a crime of praying? Published April 19, 2022

FILE - New York City Mayor Eric Adams speaks during the news conference at Harlem Hospital after the shooting in Harlem on Jan. 21, 2022, in New York. Adams, a former New York City police captain, took office this year with a central focus on making the city feel safe and trying to return it to some sense of normalcy post-pandemic. But the first 3 1/2 months of his administration have been beset by a string of high-profile violent incidents, with the Tuesday, April 12, shooting on a subway train the most terrifying and public of all.

Progressives pulling America into police state

Leftists want to defund the police, but don't want to pay the consequences at the polls when people are alarmed by hikes in crime. So they pretend to come up with other solutions to fight crime -- other solutions that a) aren't solutions and b) strip rights from law-abiding citizens. Published April 18, 2022

Biden’s woes grow with youth, independents, Latinos

America’s colleges are breeding grounds for stupid

Democrats should fear the coming ‘culture war’ campaigns

On "Meet the Press," leftist panelists agreed that Democrats have failed to properly message on pertinent cultural issues -- namely, sex education for little kids, abortion and more. That's because Dems don't have any winning messages on these matters -- unless they lie, of course. Published April 12, 2022

Climate loons and their property destroying ways

An environmentalist group called Adbusters took to Twitter to call for supporters to let out the air of SUVs tires as a means of combating pollutants.

Racism in America is no longer a thing

The Senate confirmed this week the appointment of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court, making her the first Black female justice to hold the honored spot. Can we just say racism in America, save for the few and far between, is not an issue any more? Published April 9, 2022

Alabama takes tough, necessary stand against transgenderism loons

Alabama lawmakers passed a bill that would make it a felony to provide hormone treatments, puberty blockers and gender reassignment surgery to children. Violators would face 10 years in prison. This is a necessary provision to save America's youth from the abuse of the left. Published April 8, 2022

Lawless leftists are destroying America

America cannot last without a) moral and virtuous people; b) an informed and concerned citizenry; and c) law and order that feeds into a blind justice system. And these are all areas where the Marxists masquerading as Democrats have torn into and torn apart in recent years. Published April 7, 2022

Fauci shamefully suggests Trump has COVID deaths on his hands

Anthony Fauci, on a recent interview on CNN, said the former president, Donald Trump, was to blame for many, oh so many -- how many? He wouldn't say -- but many, oh so many deaths tied to COVID-19. But the Great Obfuscater once again hid behind his obfuscating ways. Published April 6, 2022

Disney is doing the work of the devil

Democrats desperate at Biden’s dead man walking image

Donald Trump files deliciously deplorable lawsuit against Democrat liars

Donald Trump filed a 108-page lawsuit against Democrats and leftists who falsely claimed he colluded with Russia, and in so doing, caused him $24 million in damages.

American unease grows at Biden’s conflicts of interest in Ukraine

American taxpayers are being bilked for billions of COVID-19 dollars

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called on the White House to demand tens of billions of dollars more -- that's billions with a "b" -- for COVID-19 mitigation efforts. For what? Enough with the taxpayer-funded COVID-19 aid. This coronavirus is so yesterday. Published March 19, 2022
