Michael Savage's brilliant tie of Bible truths to impeachment

Talk radio rock star Michael Savage, in an opinion piece, tied the current impeachment crusade against President Donald Trump to biblical truths about the persecution and crucifixion of Jesus Christ; to the Jews of yesteryear versus the Jews of today; and to the prosecution of an innocent by the Romans and Pontius Pilate to modern time Deep State evils. It's a most brilliant comparison. Published December 4, 2019

New smart TV? Manufacturers, hackers may be watching you

The FBI issued a warning to buyers of new smart television sets that went like this: Beware -- hackers, manufacturers and app developers now have an open door into your home. Big Brother is watching. Big Brother is listening. And Big Brother is now coming as a too-good-to-believe TV purchase price wrapped in holiday ribbon. Published December 3, 2019

Lisa Page is no Monica Lewinsky

Lisa Page, the ex-FBI lawyer outed as an adulterous anti-Donald Trumper during the now-defunct Russia investigation into the president, has come forward, finally, to publicly speak. And of what does she speak? Of how mean old Trump has forced her to shed her supposedly preferred quiet life and speak. Page, the victim? Published December 3, 2019

Newt Gingrich's dire, dead-on warning for Trump supporters

Newt Gingrich, former House speaker, just wrote that Donald Trump's supporters better watch out and pay attention because the forces working to bring this president down are hardly finished with their efforts -- despite the fact genuine impeachable offenses are nowhere to be found. Take a memo: Gingrich is absolutely correct. Published December 2, 2019

Martin O'Malley: A ball of crazy fit for a Democratic Party

Democrats are crazy. How crazy? Martin O'Malley crazy. And the fact that phrase probably requires little explanation says all that needs to be said about the Democratic Party and its acceptance of insanity as proper politicking. Published November 30, 2019

Democrat BET founder Robert Johnson: Trump slated to win

Democrats, take a memo: Even Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson predicted, on CNBC, that President Donald Trump seemed surely, certainly, sure as can be on fast-track for reelection. That -- from a man whom by all left-leaners' accounts ought to be a natural Democratic Party voter, a natural Donald Trump hater. Published November 29, 2019

Thanksgiving, Rick Perry style

Energy Secretary Rick Perry sparked some seriously shocked conversations among the leftists and secularists of the media and political worlds when he said on national TV that President Donald Trump was "ordained by God" to take the White House and lead the nation. But this is not shocking. It's Christian. And moreover, it's American. Published November 27, 2019

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., gives final remarks during a hearing where former White House national security aide Fiona Hill, and David Holmes, a U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, testified before the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019, during a public impeachment hearing of President Donald Trump's efforts to tie U.S. aid for Ukraine to investigations of his political opponents.(AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

Democrats and their tortured truths expose much

We're on the cusp of a real constitutional crisis that's pitting the vicious left against a nation of outraged citizens who know full well the partisans in the Democratic Party are only in it to win it, rather than in it to humbly serve. Published November 26, 2019

Lindsey Graham is quite right to investigate the Bidens, Burisma

Sen. Lindsey Graham, in a series of tweets, said Congress ought to quit the impeachment madness and take a deeper look at Joe Biden and Hunter Biden and Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and so forth and so on -- and he's right. If the Bidens had "Rs" next to their names, not "Ds," the media would be all over this matter. Published November 26, 2019

'Cult of Trump' infects minds of left

The left has a new anti-Donald Trump trend, and it's one that goes like this: If you support this president, if you regard this president through any other lens than "impeach, impeach, impeach" -- well then, that means you're part of a cult. Of all the left's deceptive, deceiving, lying-lip, anti-Trump tries, this one has to be the funniest. Published November 26, 2019

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., with committee staffer Daniel Noble at left, makes impassioned remarks at the conclusion of a week of public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump's efforts to tie U.S. aid for Ukraine to investigations of his political opponents, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019. Former White House national security aide Fiona Hill, and David Holmes, a U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, were the final witnesses today. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Impeachment hearings leave Americans hungry for national healing

Forty-five percent of independents said in a survey conducted this week by Emerson College that they're against impeachment of this president -- and that's after a Marquette University poll a conducted couple days earlier found 53 percent of Wisconsin voters want Donald Trump to stay. The takeaway? Voters want the nation to heal. Published November 23, 2019

Joe Biden, the punch line that keeps on giving

Joe Biden just told an MSNBC-watching audience that men shouldn't ever "raise a hand to a woman in anger" -- except when he has to, when it's "self-defense." And wait for it, wait for it: That wasn't even Biden's worst debate-related moment. Published November 21, 2019

Gordon Sondland takeaway: Impeach, I 'presume'

Gordon Sondland, U.S. ambassador to the European Union, entered the House intelligence committee hearing on impeachment as the Democrats' best hope of bringing the hammer to President Donald Trump's head. He left atop a wave of presumption. In other words: The anticipated big bombsheller dropped a big nothingburger. Published November 21, 2019

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden is left standing in the crosshairs in the Democratic presidential race with the revelation that his son Hunter made hundreds of thousands of dollars through his employment with Burisma, the largest private gas company in Ukraine. (Associated Press/File)

Burisma shows double standard of Democrats

If anything concrete has come from the Democrat-fueled impeachment hearings being spearheaded by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, it's this: Witnesses acknowledge Hunter Biden's Burisma Holdings' post came in at "less than comfortable" on the old ethics scale. So why isn't Capitol Hill focused on this as an investigation? Published November 21, 2019

Ronald Reagan, the pope and 'The Divine Plan'

This day in history in 1975, Ronald Reagan announced his run for the Republican Party's nomination for president. He lost. He didn't quit. And as history recounts, his pairing with Pope John Paul II, along with deep faith in God and belief in mission, led to the ultimate tear-down of Cold War communism. Published November 20, 2019

Many Americans following the public hearings in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump have trouble making heads or tails of the daily flood of information. (Associated Press/File)

Impeachment fatigue a real risk for Democrats

Democrat Rep. Jeff Van Drew told a Fox News "Sunday Morning Futures" audience that his Capitol Hill colleagues were expressing "concern" about the ongoing, never-ending nature of the impeachment look-sees at President Donald Trump -- and that worse, word on the street is that "most people" are growing weary with the process. Published November 19, 2019

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., talks to reporters on the morning after the first public hearing in the impeachment probe of President Donald Trump on his effort to tie U.S. aid for Ukraine to investigations of his political opponents, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019. Pelosi says the president's actions in the impeachment inquiry amount to "bribery." (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Nancy Pelosi, meet Constitution

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, reacting to ongoing impeachment proceedings, issued a remarkably egregious demand that went like this: Mr. President, you need to prove your innocence. Can you say Fifth Amendment? Can you say due process? How about presumption of innocence -- or innocent until proven guilty? Published November 18, 2019

Rudy Giuliani: 'Pro-Hillary' Yovanovitch pressed Ukraine to 'hurt Donald Trump'

Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, said in an interview with OAN that Marie Yovanovitch -- according to five witnesses he knows -- instructed Ukraine's prosecutor general to drop legal cases that would've shown "Ukrainian collusion with Democrats to hurt Donald Trump."

The 'Great Disruptor' has had a great week thanks to Adam Schiff

Three takeaways from this week's wheel of impeachment fortune: Democrats got nothing. The Deep State must be ripping mad. And President Donald Trump, the "Great Disruptor" of D.C. establishment politics, as he's been dubbed, is well on his way to being reelected in 2020. Published November 16, 2019
