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. The elimination of Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad, the impeachment inquiry farce, the Iowa circus, the COVID-19 threat of a pandemic, have monopolized public attention for weeks. However, North Korea is not going away and President […]

We’re Forgetting: The Right To Bear Arms Is Essential For Life And Liberty

As we remember Martin Luther King, Jr., let’s also remember he was denied the right to keep and bear arms, and many states, including some run by Republicans, are pushing more gun restrictions. They have forgotten or never learned that the right to keep and bear arms is an essential protection for Life and Liberty. […]

U.S. Continues To Dominate World In Legalizing Foreigners

So much virtue signaling. So little truth. For three years now we’ve endured a deluge of media stories and Democrats on high horses hrumph-hrumphing us that limiting immigration is “not who we are” — which ignores the first half of the 20th century. “Trump has waged an unrelenting assault on our values and our history […]

Good Policy Matters: U.S. Wage Growth Is Soaring — Fastest At The Low End

Good policies result in good outcomes. And bad policies lead directly to bad outcomes. So, Obamacare and attendant taxes and penalties as policies were a disaster, and the results of it were terrible for healthcare costs and a wreck for the economy, which saw the slowest recovery after a recession ever in history and general […]

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.

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 […]

Impeachment be damned, Trump judicial appointees roar on at record pace

“It is up to us to reclaim our heritage of equal and impartial justice. It is up to us to re-dedicate ourselves to the traditions and wisdom of our Founders.” — PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP AT THE SWEARING IN CEREMONY OF BRETT KAVANAUGH While eyes are glued to the “historic” Congressional impeachment poppycock that will […]

The Constitutional Remedy To A Bad Impeachment by KrisAnne Hall, JD

Current events always bring about the most powerful teaching moments.  Today’s question can be generally formed as: “What is the remedy when articles of impeachment are established that do not comply with the terms of the Constitution?” The Constitution lays out very specific terms for impeachment in Article 2 section 4 of the Constitution.  According […]

Impeachment Implosion: Wave Of Polls Show Swing Toward Trump

It appears that Nancy Pelosi’s initial political instincts were right: Impeaching President Trump over a phone call would be bad politics. And now with the hearings held and the two milquetoast articles of impeachment on the table, which do not even mention a Constitutionally requisite crime, it may be worse than she thought. It’s so […]

Hamilton Silences Impeachment Fools

America’s media stream has been saturated by politicians, pundits, and law professors pontificating on what America’s founders’ believed about presidential impeachment.  The most oft used argument today is a misapplication and misleading representation of what founder Alexander Hamilton said in Federalist #65. The claim is that Alexander Hamilton establishes in Federalist #65 that presidents should […]
