How the liberal morality police ruin lives

The right to not be destroyed because people don't like you -- the bedrock principle informing all civil rights values and successes -- is being made a mockery of by today's modern liberal inquisitors. Ask comedian and actor Kevin Hart and Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. Published December 12, 2018

Gauging the uptick in drug overdose deaths and suicide

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a shocking report last week revealing American life expectancy is down as a result of higher drug overdose deaths and suicide. For those watching, the advent of Obamacare, the Republican failure in reversing that debacle and the refusal of politicians to secure our southern border all have a hand in this monstrous development.

Worrisome freedom for would-be assassin John Hinckley

In the time between the midterm elections and Thanksgiving, an important news story made some headlines but did not get the attention it deserves: John Hinckley Jr., attempted assassin of President Ronald Reagan, was granted more freedom by a federal judge. Published November 21, 2018

The Democrats' pro-woman fraud

Receiving some news coverage over the past few weeks, but not much, has been the revelation that four people have been referred by the Senate Judiciary Committee for criminal investigation regarding allegedly false statements relating to the Kavanaugh investigation. Published November 7, 2018

'Migrant caravans,' the latest liberal distraction

It's amazing how wrong the Democrats have always been, not just about the issues, but about our country and its people. Without the constant protection of a limited, compliant media, the malevolence of the organized left in this country has become starkly clear. Published October 24, 2018

Elizabeth Warren and her little DNA story

President Trump has been on another winning streak, and the Democrats are desperate for attention. Their problem? All the attention they get is also a win for the president, as it reminds us why he won in 2016 and why winning again in the midterm is so important. Published October 17, 2018

The Democrats go mean

'You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," announced Hillary Clinton during an interview on CNN. This after the Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh's Senate confirmation hearings descended into mob action to destroy that man and his family. Published October 12, 2018

Brett Kavanaugh faces Senate fabulists

For weeks, we've been subjected to the ever-increasing hysteria of the left. The confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh started with the Democrats shouting to the world that he was an evil, mutant offspring of Charles Manson and Pol Pot. Now, not so much. Published October 3, 2018

Democrats use Kavanaugh as stand-in for all perpetrators of sexual violence

As the fight to confirm Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court continues, it is imperative to remember exactly who is trying to destroy him and our system. The so-called establishment elite, left-wing groups who hate this country and our system, Hollywood hypocrites, Republican Never Trumpers and, of course, the Democratic Party having been taken over not just by ignorant socialists, but run by adults who know what they're doing is wrong and just don't care.

Haters now call Trump supporters the 'dregs of society'

Watch out Trump supporters! Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden is on the trail and has downgraded you from "deplorables" to the "dregs of society." It's the September before an election, and like well-oiled machines, Democratic leadership crawls out of their basement, ready to instill fear, division and loathing into the American electorate. And they hate you even more than they did before. Published September 19, 2018

The Democratic Party's true, and violent, believers

We have a genuine chicken-or-egg issue regarding antifa and the Democratic Party's true believers. On the one hand, we have the violent liberal group antifa, which exists to punish and hurt people for not believing as they do. On the other, we have the Democratic Party and "mainstream" liberals who exist to punish and destroy people and companies for not sharing their opinions. Published September 5, 2018

Confronting the persistent and deadly opioid crisis

The legacy media's ongoing obsession with President Trump as they work to destroy his presidency has a side benefit for those who want a return of the establishment status quo: There isn't much coverage of a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. The Washington Times headline said it all, "CDC: 72,000 died from drug overdoses in 2017, 42,000 from opioids." Published August 29, 2018

The latest murder by an illegal alien

Knowing Kate Steinle's name has been painful enough. We know of her because she was killed by a criminal illegal alien in 2015. We now know Mollie Tibbetts' name, murdered last month, and an illegal alien has been arrested for that crime as well. Published August 22, 2018

The left's 'identity politics' hypocrisy

Courtesy of California Sen. Kamala Harris, we now have a bit of a hint of the new approach we can expect by the progressives who now control the Democratic Party -- focus on Identity Politics but don't call it that. Published August 8, 2018

Liberals still hysterical over Hillary Clinton's loss get their own 'disease'

A "feeling as though the world is going to end." That could describe what millions of people could have experienced in the last 100 years. World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Sept. 11, the ISIS rampage throughout the world, all not only understandably evoked fear of the world ending, but all revolved around madness, war and genocide.
