Impatient Democrats Hear The Clock Ticking

Written by Robert Knight

Once upon a time, Democrats were terrified that a power-mad White House would ignore the “will of the people.” They warned of dire consequences if the president did end-runs around the U.S. Congress.

Written by Robert Knight

We’re in another season of orchestrated, obsessive hysteria.

is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants.”
~Mother Teresa
