Democrats always guilty of what they accuse

The former president, Barack Obama, during a "60 Minutes" segment, came out and compared President Donald Trump to a dictator for failing to concede to the media-called election of Joe Biden to the White House. Well, isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. Obama was about the most "I am zee law" president this country's seen. Published November 17, 2020

Socialism in America didn't spring up overnight

Leftists in Congress like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn't spring up overnight. They're the product of the unfortunate, embarrassing and disturbing result of an America long adrift, particularly in its public schools. Published November 14, 2020

Democrats, you created AOC -- now deal with her

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn't belong in American politics because she's an open socialist, and no socialist belongs in American politics because they can't truthfully take the oath of office to uphold and protect the Constitution. They just can't; that's a fact. Socialism is not compatible with the U.S. Constitution. Published November 12, 2020

Christians, it's beginning to look a lot like the end

Jeff Myers, president of Summit Ministries, is calling on Christians to get bolder, louder and more involved in policy and politics, or else face the consequences of a rapidly secularizing America -- meaning the demise and degradation and loss of freedom and individual rights. This, in a nutshell, is the key to keeping America free. Published November 12, 2020

Donald Trump called 'demonic force' -- seriously?

A columnist with The Week, Damon Linker, just wrote a piece with this title: "Trump is a demonic force in American politics." President Donald Trump is demonic? Seriously? Trump is biblical all right, but not in the way the left sees it. Rather, an Isaiah 5:20 way -- in a "woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil" way. Published November 11, 2020

Socialism just a couple Senate seats away

Joe Biden to force all Americans into face masks

A White House under Joe Biden will call for all Americans to wear face masks, and will pressure governors and mayors and local leaders to enforce his will. Let the regulatory clampdowns begin. Don't say America wasn't warned about the "I am zee law" to come with a Biden administration. This is just the start. Published November 9, 2020

Massachusetts Gov.

Arizona dispute heats, as data guru Nate Silver calls for Fox, AP retraction

Nate Silver, founder of FiveThirtyEight, and a once-upon-a-time darling of the left, said Arizona never should have been called so early for Democrat Joe Biden, and that Fox News and The Associated Press ought to retract their decisions. Yes. While we're at it, how about moving Pennsylvania into the win column for President Donald Trump? Published November 5, 2020

CNN host Don Lemon said Thursday he "had to get rid of" a lot of President Trump-supporting friends during the coronavirus pandemic, because he thinks they are "too far gone" in their delusions and "have to hit rock bottom like an addict" in order to accept reality. (Screenshot via CNN)

Media need post-election shakeup

If this election shows anything, it's these two things: Pollsters should be fired. By the dozens. And media executives should take the plunge and shake up their staff. By the dozens. Add some conservatives. Add some Christians. Add some people who can tell when the pollsters are spot on or off the mark. Published November 5, 2020

In this  Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017, photo US soldiers take part in NATO-led Noble Partner 2017 multinational military exercises at the military base of Vaziani, outside Tbilisi, Georgia. After more than a year of thinly veiled threats that the United States could start pulling troops out of Germany unless the country increases its defense spending to NATO standards, President Donald Trump appears to be going ahead with the hardball approach with a plan to reduce the American military presence in the country by more than 25 percent.

'Count every ballot' should include Trump-loving military voters

The Democrats, led by Joe Biden, have been making a campaign case that it's crucial to "count every vote," to keep on counting until "every ballot is counted," until "every vote is counted" -- even if those counts take us into Thursday, Friday, the weekend, and beyond. So: Does that include military ballots, too? Published November 4, 2020

Pollsters, once again, are utterly, completely wrong

CNN's notables, in early morning discussion of election results, nodded and smiled when the subject of polling came up, and pundit S.E. Cupp said this: "I want to caution against calling the death of polling just yet." Wrong. It is the death of polling. It's time for the burial. Published November 4, 2020

Twitter is losing users, just as censorship fatigue hits hard

Twitter tried to subvert the Constitution by using the free market to turn the censoring of conservative thought into a defensible position. And now Americans are using their free-market choices to say goodbye to Twitter. That's called tit for tat. That's called just due. That's called paying the piper. Published November 3, 2020

Joe Biden's desperate tweets of own 'anchor' 'Catholic' 'faith'

And just like that -- the Democrats have brought out the Bible again. Joe Biden, in a campaign tweet, wrote: "My faith has been my anchor through highs and lows -- a guiding light that taught me the values of honesty, decency, and treating others with respect. As president, it will continue to serve as a source of strength." Published November 2, 2020

Anthony Fauci should've been fired long ago

Police, stripped of protection, should do an 'Atlas Shrugged' and leave

The police in Washington, D.C., have just been stripped of much of their protective gear -- specifically, their riot gear. Why? Because a man named Karon Hylton, 20, who was driving a moped without a helmet, at times on a sidewalk, was followed by a police cruiser and, while fleeing, crashed into another car and died. Ridiculous. Published October 31, 2020

Bernie Sanders' embrace of "socialism" is rightfully noxious to many Americans, but his anti-oligarchic populism surely is not. (Associated Press/File)

Socialism in new survey again gains favor in America -- and here's why

A new YouGov survey of 2,100 U.S. citizens ages 16 and older finds that the term "socialism" is being regarded with rising favor among America's more youthful population, the Generation Z-ers and millennials, collectively between the ages of 16 and 39. This is horrible. And patriotic Americans, Christians in particular, must fight. Published October 30, 2020

Virginia set to tear down Confederate flag, Robert E. Lee -- history

A large Confederate flag that's flown the Interstate 95 skies in Stafford County, Virginia -- and that's been the subject of much heated debate, particularly in recent politically correct times -- will finally be pulled from its post. Chalk this as another historical symbol on the way out, deemed too offensive for public display. Published October 29, 2020
