Satanists and Planned Parenthood -- a match made in hell

Missouri has seen a resurgence of abortion clinics of late, thanks in large part to concerted pressures from Planned Parenthood, which sued -- successfully -- to overturn state laws requiring medical providers performing the procedure to be possessed of hospital admission privileges. And, thanks to the Satanic Temple. Published September 13, 2017

Quack attack: 27 psychiatrists pen anti-Trump book

Real psychiatrists are probably squirming in their office chairs at this -- but 27 of their professional colleagues have come together to write a book about President Donald Trump. Surprise, surprise, they find: Trump's an "antisocial" idiot with "malignant narcissism," and he's going down -- big time. And this is such a surprise because Trump, as these quack analysts acknowledge, isn't even their patient. Published September 13, 2017

Paul Ryan tips RINO: Nobody really wants a wall

Speaker Paul Ryan reportedly said during a private dinner earlier this year that nobody but nobody in Congress wanted a border wall -- well, nobody except "one member," Breitbart reported, citing a one-on-one with the former congressman, Tom Tancredo. And with that, the establishment raises its head once more. Published September 13, 2017

Senate, led by frightened GOP, passes worthless anti-KKK resolution

Senators on Capitol Hill passed this week with both speed and unanimous voice a resolution that condemns white supremacist groups and that suggests President Donald Trump ought to do the same. This strikes as a frightened, "Hail, Mary" move to save their own political seats. Published September 12, 2017

Christians beat FEMA, and in so doing, tame Big Government

Faith-based groups -- Christian nonprofits, specifically -- have been busy bees of late, providing more aid to hurricane victims than even FEMA, the federal agency that's supposed to swoop to the scenes of natural disasters, assess the situation and speed the recovery and rebuilding process. Just goes to show: Where charity exists, government is not needed. Published September 12, 2017

Steve Bannon-CBS takeaway: Swamp creatures are winning

Steve Bannon, in an interview with Charlie Rose on "60 Minutes" on CBS, said elites in the Republican Party have been steadily working to "nullify" the results of the 2016 election, and cast President Donald Trump to the side. It doesn't get any clearer -- or more honest -- than that. Published September 11, 2017

'Trump betrays everyone': Republican strategist goes hypocritical

Republicans aren't reacting so well to President Donald Trump's step across the political aisle to Democrats -- something that came about, if truth be told, only after the GOP failed time and again to work with the White House on long-promised agendas, like Obamacare. Published September 11, 2017

Betsy DeVos, like Trump, dinged for 'cruel' leadership

The left has found its newest talking point, and it's one that goes like this: All you Republicans are simply cruel and heartless -- vicious, even. That's what they're calling President Donald Trump, for DACA. That's what they're now saying about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Published September 8, 2017

Trump still beats Hillary, any poll day of the week

A new survey from NBC/Wall Street Journal finds that -- and this is the yada, yada, yawn part -- President Donald Trump's popularity with the American people has hit a new low. But here's the part that actually means something: The same survey found voters still like Trump more than Hillary Clinton. Published September 7, 2017

DACA is unconstitutional and Obama's the 'cruel' one

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, DACA, came into being on the wings of an unconstitutional act. That's the core theme here -- not that President Donald Trump is cruel. Published September 7, 2017
