PODCAST: Tim Keller Just Gave Christians Permission to Support the Party of Human Slaughter

Written by Laurie Higgins

Just last week, Manhattan megachurch pastor Tim Keller, formerly known as a mega-leader in the evangelical Christian community, published a foolish, destructive Facebook post on “Christians and the freedom of conscience in politics,” in which he said,

The Bible binds my conscience to care for the poor, but it does not tell me the best practical way to do it.

PODCAST: SCOTUS Game Time

Written by Laurie Higgins
The left always plays hardball. The right rarely does. With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg (RBG), it’s now game time for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).
People are speculating–rightly in my view–that if President Trump nominates a replacement for RBG, then leftists (mostly violent rioters) will do what they do best. People are speculating too–rightly in my view–that if President Trump is re-elected, then leftists (mostly violent rioters) will do what they do best.

PODCAST: The Democrat-Fomented Color Revolution

Written by Laurie Higgins

Since the burning, looting, assaults, and statue-toppling began, every conservative, every right-of-center, and every left-of-center American has been asking themselves, “What the heck is happening?”

Sane people know America is not a racist country. They know that oppressed people all around the world long to come to America for the opportunity to be free of oppression.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: “Progressives”: Agents of Racism, Tyranny and Violence

Written by Laurie Higgins

On Saturday night just before 7:00 p.m., a savage barbarian ran up to a patrol car parked in front of bus station in Compton, California and at point-blank range shot  a 31-year-old and a 24-year-old deputy sheriff, one in the face and one in the head. The 31-year-old is the mother of a 6-year-old boy.

Another barbarian whooped it up, delighting in and celebrating the unprovoked, subhuman attack on the deputies in a must-see-to-believe video.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: RINO Pat Brady Endorses Sean Casten in the 6th Congressional District

Written by Laurie Higgins

U.S. Representative Sean Casten who is running against the outstanding Jeanne Ives in the 6th Congressional District just revealed how deceitful he is by releasing two new campaign ads featuring the ethically vacuous viper Pat Brady. Those who know Brady’s history will gripe that “viper” is too kind a term. I completely agree, but I try to avoid expletives.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: A Woman to Stand Up to AOC: Jeanne Ives

Written by Laurie Higgins

Illinoisans and all other Americans who have watched in dismay at the growing power of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), her leftwing collaborators, and her fawning devotees who are rioting in the streets—also known as Harris/Biden voters—should be deeply invested in congressional races around the country. If we help the campaigns of good candidates and get to the polls, we have a chance to increase GOP representation in the U.S.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: What a Millennial Biden Voter Thinks About Race

If you haven’t spoken to a Millennial Harris/Biden supporter, continue reading for a better understanding of the ignorance that “Critical Race Theory” results in, which in turn should make it clear how critically important it is for President Trump to be re-elected. Following Monday’s article about President Trump’s outstanding decision to prohibit federal agencies from funding CRT, I had a Facebook discussion with a Millennial who has swallowed the destructive ideology hook, line, and lethal sinker.… Continue Reading
