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.

Republican pigs go full ‘Animal Farm’ and stab Donald 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’

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

Democrats making martyr of Donald Trump
