Government overreach and the jailing of Shelley Luther

At first blush, the now-infamous Shelley Luther salon case in Dallas, Texas, appears to be one of a judge having lost all common sense and certainly any sense of justice. That's part of it, but not the entire story. Published May 13, 2020

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has accomplished something for women that no other Democrat could: He has exposed the fraud of the #MeToo movement.

Pushing back against the little tyrants of the coronavirus

Americans have been doing a fantastic job following the coronavirus guidance of the president, their governors and perhaps also their local leaders when it comes to social distancing and taking precautions not just for ourselves and our own health, but for those around us. Published April 15, 2020

Lessons from the coronavirus pandemic

To say the last few weeks have been surreal would be an understatement. In January, the Democratic Party was having hearings in the House of Representatives on the impeachment of President Trump. That same month, as the bureaucratic establishment was wasting our time with dumb partisan politics, a deadly virus from China had been unleashed on the world. Published March 18, 2020

Blaming Trump for the 'Wuhan Virus'

It's one thing to notice the media focusing on limited, panic-inducing headlines and narratives. We see them do that every day during this Trump era, as the left relies on panic and victimhood to control people. Controlling most of the legacy media is a necessary part of being able to implement that strategy. Published March 11, 2020

Bernie Sanders' embrace of Castro and socialism

After Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Americans were reminded just how strange and unprepared the senator from Vermont really is. During a "60 Minutes" interview, he unleashed a nonsense word salad when pressed to explain how he would pay for all of his socialist policy ideas. Published February 26, 2020

'Oscars 2020' parades Hollywood's contempt for everyday Americans

SOTU: A story of triumph for Trump but not for the Democrats

The extraordinary display of bigotry and contempt for Trump voters presented by CNN's Don Lemon and two guests -- New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali and Republican ex-strategist Rick Wilson -- aired Saturday night and went viral on social media with one video garnering more than 10 million views, and counting. And now it has been made into a very effective political ad by the GOP. Published January 30, 2020

Women's March shrinks to a mere 10K Trump haters who can't acknowledge the president's successes

You might have missed news of the 2020 manifestation of the so-called Women's March, the anti-Trump mob masquerading as a women's rights effort. Launched in 2017 after President Trump's win for the presidency and the second abject failure of Hillary Clinton's run for the office, you didn't hear much about this year's event from the legacy media because it collapsed under the weight of its own hypocrisy and fraud.
