Bill Gates: Let them eat bugs!

Why would a former Microsoft executive who has spent the last two years chiding Americans to be more like China when it comes to coronavirus protections and forced COVID-19 shots want to own prime farmland at all? Good question. Could it be to build a fake meat empire? Published July 7, 2022

Bette Midler latest leftie to buck LGBTQ lunacy

Climate alarmists seizing their day

Climate alarmists took over the highways of Maryland in the lead-up to the holiday weekend, blocking all lanes across the inner loop of Interstate 495 and causing traffic disruptions that lasted 90 minutes.

Democrats are great for Republicans

Democrats -- Democrats and don't forget Rep. Liz Cheney -- are giving Republicans massive wind at their backs for both the midterms and the next presidential election. Emily Post might suggest thank-you notes are in order. Published July 2, 2022

Rep. Adam Kinzinger stupidly calls out ‘Christian Taliban’

Rep. Lauren Boebert said she was "tired of this separation of church and state junk." Rep. Adam Kinzinger responded by likening Boebert's chalking up her remark as "Christian Taliban."

Religious freedom wins! American exceptionalism wins

The Supreme Court ruled that high school football coach Joseph Kennedy indeed had a right to pray on the 50-yard line post-game. And with that, years of ridiculous leftist-fueled fights against obvious American rights -- to pray and worship freely -- come to an end. Published June 28, 2022

Pro-lifers now have opportunity to heal, unite

Somewhere, in some clinic, in some state across America right now is a frightened girl who was about to have an abortion, but now, after the Supreme Court's overturn of Roe v. Wade, is told she can't. And it's not enough for pro-lifers to respond to that scenario by saying, "good." Published June 27, 2022

Red flag laws will lead to gun confiscations

Gun control legislation is winding through the Senate, largely on the wings of Democrats but floated, too, by a dozen or so Republicans who've seen fit to sign on to red flag laws.These Republicans are politically misstepping.

Whatever the outcome, the Politico report represents an extremely rare breach of the court's secretive deliberation process, and on a case of surpassing importance. (AP Photo/Amanda Andrade-Rhoades)

Pro-abortion nuts ratchet nuttiness

Chesa Boudin bites the dust, but to Democrats, he’s just a blip

San Francisco voters ousted soft-on-crime Chesa Boudin in a recall election that wrapped with such wide margins, the message is hard to mistake: Even Democrat-dominated districts don't like thieves and murderers within their midsts. But how long will this attitude last? Published June 8, 2022
