Nancy Pelosi, in ripping SOTU speech, disdains all America, not just Trump

Make no mistake about it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's dramatic State of the Union speech-ripping performance wasn't aimed just at the president. It was a show of disdain for all the president's supporters -- for all of patriotic America. For all the deplorables out there she hasn't been able to control and conquer. Published February 5, 2020

'Cuba sucks': Reflections on socialism, behind the curtain

A team of Turning Point USA producers took a trip to Cuba to peer behind the glitzy social media photos that show a nation of happy, happy, joy, joy citizens -- and came home to America with a stiff, stern warning for Bernie Sanders' fans and socialist wannabes that went, bluntly, like this: Don't bring the bleak to America.

Bernie Sanders, the socialist POTUS? Better believe it

A couple of decades ago, the idea of a Bernie Sanders socialist as president of the United States was unthinkable. Now, here he stands, chugging up the poll numbers, climbing up the primary ranks, scooping up the millennial love. What's changed? Much, but mostly, morals and faith. Published February 4, 2020

Franklin Graham blasts Pepsi, NFL for 'sexual exploitation'

Super Bowl steamy halftime show not amusing

Family friendly has taken a turn toward the pornographic in this country. And apparently, America is loving it. America, minus the parents trying to raise their children with godly values and virtues, is loving it. What happened to class. What happened to talent. What happened to singing without a stripper pole. Published February 3, 2020

Super Bowl Sunday's sad and seedy sex trafficking side

Not to be a killjoy -- but as San Francisco and Kansas City battle in Miami for Super Bowl LIV's coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy, untold numbers of American girls will be sold at the price of $300 an hour or so to sleazy sex trafficker customers. Welcome to the seedy not-so-underground side of celebrity-size sporting events. Published February 1, 2020

Impeachment trial in a John 16 era

America was built on a foundation of Judeo-Christian principles, rooted on virtues and morals and values taken straight out of the Bible -- and here we are, circa 2020, watching what has to be one of the most vicious take-downs of a president in U.S. history. Biblically speaking, for sure, we're living in John 16 times. Published January 30, 2020

Attorney General William Barr, in an interview with Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, said religious freedom is key to keeping America free and that founders knew this and that's why they emphasized the importance of a virtuous, moral people.

New Jersey, latest pro-Trump hot spot, voted for Hillary Clinton by 14 points in 2016

What's remarkable about President Donald Trump's New Jersey speech is the massive throng that gathered. This is a state that voted big for Hillary Clinton in 2016. And this is a time that Trump is supposed to be at his lowest point, facing his darkest days: impeachment and ousting. You'd think he'd be shunned, not showered with love. Published January 29, 2020

John Bolton just the latest Democrat tool in a very large shed

John Bolton, former national security adviser at the White House, could've penned a paragraph in his soon-to-be-released book about a picnic lunch with the president -- and the press, the left, the Democrats would've found some way to turn his recorded conversation with Donald Trump into an impeachable offense.

Socialists like Bernie Sanders cash in big on ignorance

Socialism simply thrives on ignorance. It's the primary means that it's woven into the fabric of U.S. society and government. Socialists wouldn't have a following if today's youth were properly educated on American Exceptionalism and on U.S. history. Published January 28, 2020

Don Lemon's disgusting on-air mock of Trump

Don Lemon of CNN is more opinion than fact. But still: Busting out in a two-minute fit of laughter as show panelists go on a mocking routine of President Donald Trump is beneath even CNN. At least, you'd think. But here's the hypocrisy: A Lemon by a different employer -- say, Fox -- would be on suspension right about now. Published January 28, 2020

Democrats on impeachment know they've got nothing

Democratic political analyst Mary Anne Marsh on Fox News said John Bolton should be called to testify before the Senate on impeachment because he'd be the first witness in this whole impeachment process who could offer firsthand testimony on what President Donald Trump has said, or has not said. This is an astonishing admission. Published January 27, 2020

John Bolton book leak the latest Deep State jab at Trump

The leftists in the media, the Democrats, the House managers -- all these players are in hyper mode over former National Security Adviser John Bolton's upcoming book in which he reportedly ties Donald Trump's release of aid to Ukraine to political information on Joe and Hunter Biden. But the bigger question is this: Who leaked? Published January 27, 2020

George Soros, 89, is still on a quest to destroy America

George Soros is 89, but by gosh, before he dies, he's going to see to the internal destruction of America. How else to listen to his words in Davos, Switzerland, track his funding of American political races and pay attention to what he says about President Donald Trump, capitalism, and the leftist causes he backs and conclude otherwise?

Joe Rogan fails to see 'insanely consistent' failures of socialism

Celebrity Joe Rogan, who's capitalized on America's capitalistic system with successes as a comedian, actor and podcast host, said he'd probably vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders for president because the guy's been "insanely consistent" with his, well, socialism. Yes. Just as socialism has been "insanely consistent" as a failed system.
