Governor Despots? Panic Is Stripping Americans Of Essential Liberties

Ignored or buried in this global pandemic panic is the giant risk we have already taken not to the economy, as horrible as that is, but to our essential liberties. This is not theoretical anymore. Forget the President. Since when does every governor, mayor, county executive and dog catcher in the country have unlimited powers […]

Are We Seeing The Emergence Of Greatness In A Crisis?

Watching the evening press conferences that President Trump and his team are holding nightly during this crisis, I am seeing something I was not expecting — and now understand why some Democrats and many media members are pushing networks to cut the live coverage and make sure they get to” filter” everything. The media calls […]

Coronavirus Highlights The Importance Of The Trump Doctrine Succeeding

With China Reeling, A Strategic Opportunity With North Korea

So much has been happening recently in the world that North Korea has all but disappeared from the front pages.

Mayor Pete Tweets Christmas Day Lies About Jesus’ Birth

Mayor Pete Buttegeig shows the “acceptable” way to politicize Christmas, on Christmas Day, and be factually/biblically wrong on every single point. On Christmas morning, Buttegeig, a leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, tweeted this: “Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, […]

Lawless Mexico Kills 1,000 Times More Americans Than Terrorists Do

A series of major events in recent months have revealed just how lawless and uncivilized the northern provinces of Mexico have become. Since these form the actual border with the southern United States, this causes a direct threat and makes the case for the wall even more urgent. The highest profile incident was the military-like […]
