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

The New York Times just published an opinion piece titled, "The Capitol Insurrection Was as Christian Nationalist as It Gets." Nice try.

George Bush pansies poised to exit GOP

So tons of George Bush-ers are leaving the GOP over Donald Trump?

Lincoln Project falling on hard sex-scandal times

So the anti-Donald Trump Lincoln Project was co-founded by a guy who now stands accused of sending sexually explicit messages to young males, one as young as 14, and promising jobs and career advancement in exchange for, you guessed it, sex. That's called sexual harassment. Published February 1, 2021

Christian surge in China threatens communists -- and Democrats

China, land of the dark, is seeing the light -- the light of the gospel, that is -- with an explosion of Christianity in recent years so great that the American Family Association is calling it nothing short of "astonishing" and "miraculous." This has leftists everywhere on edge. Published February 1, 2021

Joe Biden goes nuts on executive powers

President Joe Biden, off a "busy week," as he termed it, of signing executive order upon executive order, signed two more executive orders aimed at "restoring" Obamacare and undoing President Donald Trump's "attack on women's health access." What's that now -- 40? Published January 28, 2021

D.C. military occupation not a good look for America

Concerns over "civil disturbance" have led powers in Washington, D.C., to extend the stay of members of the National Guard in the capital city. A military occupation in America -- who knew. But military troops are not law enforcement officers. Nor should they be treated as such. Published January 28, 2021

Bill Gates will use 'pandemic war' to control the world

Bill Gates wants future pandemics to be treated as seriously as the world regards war. And what that means in layman's terms is he wants to use future pandemics as cause to strip citizens of their rights to self-rule. But don't worry; he says it's all for your own good. Published January 27, 2021

Crush the unions, fire the teachers

Snopes mounts magic mask theory to save Joe Biden from shame

President Joe Biden just blundered a big one, as Joe Biden is wont to do, and issued an executive order that put most all American citizens into face masks. And then he went out and about without his own face mask. Oops. Hypocrisy at its finest. Elitism at its ugliest. Or is it? Published January 25, 2021

Rand Paul smackdown of George Stephanopoulos is what media deserve

Sen. Rand Paul went on "This Week" on ABC and, after being labeled by host George Stephanopoulos a liar and characterized as a political hack, fought back with this: George, you're not so much a "journalist" as "a fool." That's what most in the media these days deserve. Published January 25, 2021

Executive orders are not unifying

Joe Biden rose to the presidency on promises of healing America's soul and unifying the country -- and then, when he got there, turned around and slammed the Constitution down hard and issued a bunch of executive orders. That's hardly unifying. That's more, "I am zee law!" Published January 23, 2021

Newsmax TV is to Fox what Fox was to CNN

When Roger Ailes joined up with Rupert Murdoch to start Fox News as a conservative alternative to the liberal news networks, CNN mocked the competition as, well, hardly competition. It's a bit how Fox, in turn, treated Newsmax TV. And now, the chickens are coming home to roost. Published January 21, 2021

GOP pigs go full 'Animal Farm' and stab Trump in the back

Scarcely had Donald Trump even packed his bags and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was already throwing his final daggers at the president's back, cutting deals with Dems. It's the final step.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, emboldened, ramps up calls to 'abolish ICE'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the congressional socialist with the mostest, took to Twitter to call for the end of America's leading border control agency, ICE. Yep.

Impeachment charade hurts all of America

The left will get its pound of flesh. If anything characterizes how Democrats and their cohorts in the left-leaning media work, it's that phrase -- and it's that phrase's meaning that's being played out with the current impeachment push against President Donald Trump. Published January 19, 2021

Violence plays right into the Saul Alinksy-loving Left's hands

Violence plays into the hands of the left by giving them a high horse on which they can sit and blast condemnation upon this 'disgusting, vile, violent, gasp, right-wing batch of deplorables.' Or whatever similar suitably condemning phraseology fits the mood of the moment. Published January 16, 2021
