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 […]
President Trump’s remarks last Thursday were everything anyone could want out of an American President following Wednesday’s Capitol mob. As presidential as presidential comes, as have been his following statements. Exactly what the coastal media glitterati have been clamoring for. But it doesn’t mean a wit to the Democrat leaders and media howling for Trump’s head since […]
When we talk about America increasingly becoming two nations, it’s not about race or income, it’s about competing information silos that have been driven by the media choosing to be the silo for one worldview and political side instead of fair, neutral information sources that can fuel the debates between worldviews. Race and income are […]
We’re hearing Gestapo thrown around a lot lately. It’s almost as though the legions of easily-propagandized ignorants wore out the constant mis-use of Nazi, Fascist and Hitler. Most of the Gestapo iterations of this are complete nonsense. Most. Not all. The Chinese Communist government’s police state apparatus is the modern day equivalent of the Gestapo. […]
The attack dogs are being put back into the Obama hibernation chambers and the dutiful lapdogs are back out, gently placed on the blanketed lap of Joe Biden and the puppeteers running him. Let the era of the Great Fawning begin. An Associated Press article was representative of the media coverage of Joe Biden’s pick for […]
It seems like a strange matchup, a midsize community against one of the world’s great cities — or once great cities. Other than being in the United States and never seeing snow, there are not a lot of similarities between Los Angeles and Sarasota, Florida. Except about 10 years ago, they both, like most American […]
No less a non-conservative authority than Politico has labeled the Florida Democratic Party in “post-election meltdown” after a complete beatdown by the Florida GOP in the Nov. 3 election. It’s so bad that Democrats are seriously worried that Florida has become a permanently red state. Politico led their story this way: “It wasn’t just one bad cycle. […]
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with […]
Democrats here are angry and astonished — astonished I tell you! — that President Trump and Republicans are accusing Biden and Democrats of cheating. This is rich beyond measure. Let me help Democrat friends understand an important concept, it’s in the Bible so you might now know it: You sow to the wind, you reap […]
The polls are the polls and no one other than the paid pollsters with obvious vested interests can tell you if they are accurate. They suggest Trump is down a couple of percentage points in Florida. That is highly doubtful for several concrete, number-driven reasons. First, let’s understand the difference between polls and other data. […]
The biggest issue regarding the Hunter Biden laptop imbroglio may not be the actual contents and their meaning — as dangerous and potentially criminal as those are. Instead, it may be ongoing misconduct at the top levels of the FBI — an enormous threat — and the abandonment of the American people by institutions such […]
