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 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 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, […]
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 […]
Listening to the news and watching the headlines has become a requirement for my current ministry. But I have come to realize that a daily diet of this is hazardous to my health. This never ending caustic supply of drama and crisis is not healthy for the body or the soul. It makes me want […]
“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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
The American people and the world are witnessing a revolution of openness brought on by none other than the frank, brusk, always to the point methods of President Trump. This was on full display this week as Trump held public press conferences with world leaders during the NATO meeting in London, and repeatedly had shockingly […]
Amid the unceasingly negative coverage of President Trump and impeachment by the former mainstream media, there is zero coverage of what Congress is not doing. What the Democrat-led Congress is not doing is keeping any of the promises it made during the 2018 midterm elections, when Americans flipped 40 seats and gave them control of Congress. Instead, […]
The recent merger between Gatehouse Media and Gannett Corporation is another milestone in the rapid decline financially and journalistically of newspapers. Don’t expect either to change anytime soon. But what is more enlightening is that they are not the only mainstream media outlets struggling. Turns out that in addition to TV news networks, a lot […]
The media and cavalcade of leftist organizations in the country are continually trying to tell traditional Americans that they are actually extremists. Being patriotic, believing in capitalism, thinking that men are men and not women, that there is a God and that America is an exceptional nation are among the beliefs that will get one […]
It’s often said by conservative voices that Trump hatred is not about Trump, it’s about you! (Meaning Trump supporters.) That’s partially true. Trump haters certainly do hate his supporters, too. But it goes much deeper than that. Trump haters despise an America that sits atop the world economically, militarily and morally — particularly morally. They […]
The 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall is November 9th, and on cue the American left is hard at work distorting and lying about history, communism and, of course, walls. Particularly walls. At New College of Florida, the Honors College for the Florida university system and a hotbed of far left ideas […]
