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 […]
Gallup’s most recent comparison poll for whether Americans think they are better off or worse off than four years earlier, going back to the first time Gallup asked the question, is nothing short of shocking. Gallup’s chart compares President Trump’s rating to previous presidents at the end of their first terms and shows him at 56 percent. […]
There’s a deeply inconvenient truth that the Black Lives Matter, Inc. left does not want Americans to hear. Anyone can be racist and anyone can be the victim of racism. We’ve seen this over the past months with multiple videos of black people attacking white people because they are white, even with police investigating some […]
For my entire adult life, Minnesota has been a blue state, not even voting for President Ronald Reagan in 1984 when he won reelection in an electoral landslide. It’s the state that has given us Rep. Ilhan Omar and former Saturday Night Live diaper baby Sen. Al Franken, amongst other radical and weirdo leftists. Barack […]
It’s another week and so the Democratic Party and their Keystone Cops media allies have drummed up yet another reality-free, context-free, phony-baloney political crisis to scare the American public against re-electing President Trump. This one is a doozy, only missing green lizard people in tinfoil hatching from recently returned astronauts. This faux crisis is the […]
The media continues to be the primary driver of racial divisions in America. The most recent example makes the blood boil, but perfectly demonstrates how coverage, and lack of coverage, drives a false narrative that results in American cities burning for a lie. Five-year-old Cannon Hinnant was playing outside his father’s North Carolina house on […]
