When One Party Runs It All

Written by Robert Knight

Here in the DC Swamp, local Democrats are rattling the cage for statehood. They want to make the 61.4-square-mile District of Columbia the 51stState, right up there with Virginia, Alaska and California. Even the smallest state, Rhode Island, has 1,212 square miles, about half the size of Joe Biden’s Delaware.

Politically speaking, statehood is not going to happen. D.C. is unique by design. And, the rest of the nation, or at least half of it, wouldn’t be keen on adding two more guaranteed socialists to the U.S.… Continue Reading

Don’t Let Climate Change Alarmism Ruin Your Future

Written by Jerry Newcombe

Many people today, especially the young, are making some terrible long-term decisions, and it’s because they assume that the “experts” are right when it comes to catastrophic man-made global warming. They buy the notion that we only have 12 years of life left on earth:

  • Many of them are not investing for their future. Why should they, if they have no future?
  • Many are experiencing depression because of climate change.
  • Many are choosing to not have children, so they can save the planet.

The Party with No Ideas

Written by John C. Goodman

At first glance you might think that the Democratic presidential campaign is boiling over with one new idea after another. Free health care. Free education. No more carbon emissions. There have been so many pronouncements, it’s hard to keep track of them.

But that’s just at first glance. If you delve deeper, you will discover these are not ideas at all. They are feelings. Strongly held feelings, mind you. But feelings, nonetheless.… Continue Reading

A Disturbing Glimpse Into the Manufacturing of Fake News

Written by Ken Blackwell

President Trump’s enemies provided yet another disturbing glimpse of the bona fide fake news factory into which the mainstream media has morphed.

Late last week, Ian Bremmer tweeted a made-up quote from President Trump. Bremmer is one of the most well-known foreign policy experts in America. He didn’t offer any hint that the statement was fake. “President Trump in Tokyo: ‘Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden,’” Bremmer wrote.… Continue Reading

Written by Timothy J. Dailey

Former Vice President and Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden has declared that his top legislative priority would be the Equality Act, which would enshrine LGBTQ special rights into labor and civil rights laws.

Biden delivered the keynote address at the annual gala of the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual organization that seeks to promote the LGBTQ agenda under the guise of protecting basic human freedoms. His half-hour speech ranged from emotional tributes to those gathered to his denunciation of the policies of President Donald Trump, which he called “wrong” and “immoral.”

The former Vice President pointed out his long support of LGBTQ issues, noting that during the 2012 presidential campaign he proclaimed his support for gay marriage before President Barack Obama did.… Continue Reading

With Abortion and Socialism, Democrats Are Peddling Slavery Again

Written by Trevor Thomas

In 1860, with the election of Abraham Lincoln as U.S. President, the newly-formed Republican Party controlled the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, and presidency. As was the case with most every state in what would become the Confederacy, my home state of Georgia cited slavery, republicans, and the election of Lincoln as its reasons for seceding:

A brief history of the rise, progress, and policy of anti-slavery and the political organization into whose hands the administration of the federal government has been committed [the republicans] will fully justify the pronounced verdict of the people of Georgia [who voted to secede].

Rejecting the Marxists’ Version of the Constitution

Written by Robert Knight

The first rule of any Marxist revolution is that rules are fine if they advance the cause or cripple opponents.  The rules can be discarded the minute they get in the way.

That’s the way America’s Marxists, socialists and many liberals operate when it comes to the U.S. Constitution, especially the First Amendment.

Here’s the relevant portion:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press.”

When they are legalizing obscenity and destroying community standards, the Left’s attorneys, spearheaded by the ACLU, take a “no-exceptions” view.  … Continue Reading
