FILE - In this Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019 file photo, Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., left, and Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., stand with President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Ky., as Trump speaks while departing after a Senate Republican Policy luncheon, on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Republican Party still belongs to Donald Trump. The GOP privately flirted with purging the norm-shattering former president after he incited a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol last month. But in the end, only seven of 50 Senate Republicans voted to convict Trump in his historic second impeachment trial on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

Trump deplorables will not be purged

Hey, RINOs: Guess what? Neither Donald Trump nor his fan base is going quietly any time soon. This culture war, this political war, this fight for the future of America and battle over capitalism versus socialism -- this party is only getting started. Published February 17, 2021

President Joe Biden, on the anniversary of the horrible tragedy called the Parkland school shootings, promised his administration would forever protect innocent Americans from similarly senseless crimes and soon enough, with Democrats holding majorities in both House and Senate, pass "commonsense gun law reforms." That is to say: End the Second Amendment as we know it. Published February 16, 2021

Double face-masking: Why not triple? Quadruple?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and health experts with Johns Hopkins just agreed with Anthony Fauci that double masking -- piling a mask on top of a mask over face and nose -- is "helpful" to fight coronavirus.

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations told Politico Magazine that yes, she once stood by the president but now, post-Impeachment Two, post-Capitol Hill protest, he's "let us down."

ISIS: We're baaack!

It's really no coincidence that as soon as strong-on-foreign-policy Donald Trump exited the White House office and weak-with-overseas-players Joe Biden entered that headlines started blasting this: "ISIS could regain capacity to orchestrate attacks in 2021." Published February 12, 2021

National anthem is still unifying

By now, everybody's heard that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, also of "Shark Tank" TV fame, has done away with the singing or playing of the national anthem before basketball games and that he's also declined to tell why. The 11-14 Mavericks suck, anyway. Published February 11, 2021

Trump could easily steal Republican voters for new party

Roughly 70% of Republicans said in a new poll that they'd either definitely or "maybe" join a political party formed by Donald Trump. As Bernie Sanders might say: That's yuuge.

'Vaccine passport' is outrageously unconstitutional

To impose a vaccine as a condition of traveling is to suggest that government knows best what is best for an individual's health, and therefore has the right to strip that individual of the power to self-determine.

'Christian Nationalism' is the left's next anti-American play

That's called sexual harassment. Published February 1, 2021

Christian surge in China threatens communists -- and Democrats
