Democrats Pursue Voter Fraud Leading Up To 2020

Mark Hemingway at Real Clear Investigations recently wrote a solid piece about the “data problem” with getting clean voter rolls and eradicating voter fraud. He’s right, there is a data problem. And a management problem. And a competence problem. After all, government runs elections and government is pretty famously awful in all of those categories. But those […]

How An Honest Media Would Have Covered Mueller’s Press Conference

As a former long-time journalist, I like to sometimes write a straight news story based on the actual news and not leftist agitprop. If straightforward, honest, non-pack journalists were covering last week’s surprise press conference by Robert Mueller, this is how a news story might read. Surprise Mueller Statement Questions Universal Presumption Of Innocence (WASHINGTON, […]

EXPLAINED: Why Democrats Are Generationally Blind To The Spectacular Failure of Socialism

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” – Margaret Thatcher In full deference to the Iron Lady, that’s not the only problem. That is a functional reality of socialism’s practical doom. But at its core, socialism is a violation of elemental human nature that desires to build, innovate, expand […]

Democrats Are Setting Up A Challenge To The 2020 Census

Democrats across the nation are deeply worried about the 2020 Census. The states that are most apt to lose representation after the new Census are mostly Democrat-dominated. The states most likely gain representation after the Census are mostly Republican-controlled. That is almost entirely due to residents of California, New York and Illinois fleeing to Florida, […]

LGBTQ War On Chick-fil-A Is Failing Spectacularly

Chick-fil-A is vilified by the American left — and particularly the LGBTQ+ community — like few other American companies. The reason is clear: They are honest, biblical Christians in their beliefs and statements, including on marriage being between one man and one woman — because that is what the Bible explicitly says and what all […]

Polls: Trump Popularity Soars to Highest Level, Trust In Media Tanks To Lowest

The events in the above headline are not unrelated. Once the literally “no news” two-year news cycle of Trump-Russia collusion ended with the thump of the Mueller report finding no collusion and not recommending any obstruction of justice charges, it turns out Americans are OK with President Trump. More than OK. The Zogby Poll has Trump’s […]

Florida’s Honors College Moves to “Cognitive Diversity”

Florida’s honors college for the state system may have twisted itself into a verbal knot because it does what apparently is common practice among colleges — adding a layer of review to applying students who had reported mental issues. This makes eminent sense for college campuses who have been dealing with some tragic violence issues, […]

Cyber Jihadists Are Getting Christians Banned On Facebook

It’s not just high-profile anti-leftist political commentators such as Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer who are being banned from Facebook and de-platformed elsewhere. Facebook has forced a well-known Christian apologist off their platform for things he posted years earlier — such as death and rape threats he received and even a famous […]

Biden Will Run On A Central Lie About Donald Trump

Joe Biden announced today and he is running on one of the core lies about President Trump. And it is a lie that is at once pervasive and really easy to reveal. It’s the lie about what Trump said after Charlottesville and represents everything wrong with the Democrat/media establishment. Trump painfully clearly and obviously was […]

Historians Will Know This As ‘The Era Of The Witch Hunt’

There really is nothing new under the sun. The infamous Salem Witch Trials started with a group of young girls claiming they were doing bad things because they were possessed. They then said that it was witches who caused them to be possessed, naming them without providing any evidence. The “witches” were then summarily executed. […]
