Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won in 2018 over Andrew Gillum by 32,000 votes, or four-tenths of one percentage point. Very, very close in a big purple state. Since that victory, DeSantis has endured relentless attacks on every conceivable issue, non-issue and fake issue. National outlets such as 60 Minutes and state publications in every market […]

Tax-sucking Congressional socialists continue to pressure kinda sorta President Biden to cancel at least $50,000 in student debt via executive order. Despite the enormous strain other Democrat policies have had on hard-working American families, this bailout to college grads will almost assuredly happen because this presidential anomaly’s handlers cannot or do not want to stand […]
Combining various international treaties since its inception in 1864, the Geneva Conventions were originally intended for, and still stand as, protections for soldiers and civilians in wartime. So, with the vaccines for COVID being discussed as a possible crime against humanity under the Nuremberg Code, which falls under the Geneva Conventions, the question arises: Are we […]
The first mandate listed in the “Permissible Medical Experiments” section of volume II of the Trials of War Criminals reads: “[t]he voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.” That’s it then, right? Shouldn’t Biden be locked up as a war criminal? After all, he’s been calling for forced vaccines. And they are experimental. During Military […]
Headlines over the past couple days seem to have shocked the collective conscience. But, that’s only because most Americans were following lame stream, fake news media over the past five years. During what became known as the “Trump-Russia Collusion” scandal, few understood what it was even about. Oh how different today would be if only they […]
On a recent weekend in New York City, thousands of protesters gathered in Times Square. But the number of protesters wasn’t the headline. Rather it was the diversity of the crowd that was surprising. One sign indicative of the mood read, “Dear Democratic Party, you lost me at mandate. Sincerely, a lifelong liberal.” It appears that […]
Democrats’ ongoing fundamental transformation of America continues. What they cannot get through Congress — which are the most radical, anti-American ideas they can conjure — they just use the pen and phone as the godfather of radically changing America taught them. The latest on this front is that the Sock Puppet administration continues to castrate […]
Those who want to save our country would do well to aim their fire at the real enemies of America, not those on their own side who want to save it. I was the speaker at a large Republican event recently and, inevitably, the grievance was aired in the Q&A portion: “Where’s the Republican Party? […]
There is plenty of finger-pointing going on right now over who is to blame for America’s shockingly rapid decline. Joe Biden, Donald Trump, radical Democrats, Trumper Republicans, public education, universities, Hollywood culture, woke culture in general and so on. But Thomas Jefferson would point to something far more fundamental in the nation’s decline: the media. […]
The American Left continues to shut down mascots and products that celebrate minorities while being fine with those that uphold whites. From Indians and Redskins to Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima, the Left clears the aisles, stadiums and airwaves of venerable and wholesome images of black Americans and Native Americans — often without the support of […]
Earmarks are back! And now, the unaccountable chicanery at taxpayer expense is a good thing, according to the unaccountable media. We shouldn’t be surprised. Clearly Washington has the financial responsibility of a 16-year-old with an unlimited credit card from a magic wizard. Earmarks were those highly unpopular Congressional expenditures where any member of Congress could […]
Let’s be clear. When Republicans regain majorities in the House and Senate, if they do not redefine Section 203 of the Communications Decency Act more narrowly to strip its protections from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, it will be a dereliction of duty to the American people and the principles of free speech and truth. If […]
A new poll has found that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is enjoying overwhelming public approval among Floridians regarding his year-long handling of Covid and the vaccine distribution. The media? Not so much. Cygnal, a less well-known firm that the New York Times called the most accurate polling firm in 2018 and which had the highest number of […]
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has gained tremendous popularity among conservatives nationwide with his deft handling of the COVID pandemic, personal freedoms, open-for-business attitude and almost Trumpian willingness to fight against the establishment and elitist wisdom but with a Harvard-trained communications ability. As such, he has been under relentless attack by the Democrat media, seen most […]
The history of the Reichstag fire and how it was used by the early German Nazis to crack down on their primary political opponents, German Communists, is eerily illustrative of the Capitol riot and following days. The Reichstag was the building in which the German Diet, it’s parliament or Congress at the time, met before […]
