Astronauts, Riots, and Pandemics: 2020 vs. 1969

Written by Dr. Paul G. Kengor

In July 1969, three American astronauts landed on the moon. It wasn’t just a great technical triumph. It was a much-needed respite amid social and political chaos.

America was already beset by Vietnam and civil rights struggles. That summer of 1969, things got worse. The nation was shocked by news of a riot after a confrontation between gay rights activists and police outside the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village on June 28.… Continue Reading

Pelosi’s Nonsensical Response to Biden Abuse Allegations

Written by Laurie Higgins

In addition to the many sound policy decisions President Trump has made, one of the most important things to emerge from his election is the exposure of the breadth and depth of the hypocrisy of Democrats. Recently that hypocrisy has been revealed in the way Democrats have responded to sexual abuse allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.… Continue Reading

Let’s Stop Pretending Biden is a Virtuous Man

Written by Peter Heck

There’s a developing tendency on the right when discussing the current presidential race to regard former Vice President Joe Biden as “at least a decent and honest guy.” He isn’t a communist like Bernie, that’s true. And he isn’t a congenital liar who deceives others for profit and power like Warren. Or isn’t he?

That’s the question that I think it’s important for conservatives to answer as we border on making Vice President Biden a palatable choice in the race for president.… Continue Reading

Operating Above the Law

Written by Robert Knight

“No one is above the law,” U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said when announcing the start of the impeachment process against President Donald J. Trump.

She should have tempered it with: “unless you’re a Democrat.”

For starters, literally hundreds of Democrat-controlled jurisdictions operate as “sanctuary cities,” flouting the law by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials.  … Continue Reading

Pete Buttigieg: Fool or Wolf in Lamb’s Clothing?

Written by Laurie Higgins

Claiming to be a Christian, faux-married, homosexual Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg wields the Bible as a political weapon with which to bludgeon conservatives. It’s odd then that fellow “progressives” don’t chastise Buttigieg for violating the separation of church and state as they do when theologically orthodox Christians cite their faith as informing their public policy positions.… Continue Reading

Regressive Progressives’ Hypocrisy

Written by Laurie Higgins

It’s difficult to take seriously “progressives”—you know, those who endorse human slaughter and sexual deviance—who caterwaul about Trump’s character. What are their criteria for assessing character?

We know “progressives”—henceforth referred to more aptly as “regressives”—don’t care about sexual continence or sexual propriety: They love John F. Kennedy, his Lady Killer brother Ted, and credibly-accused rapist Bill Clinton.… Continue Reading

Don’t Let Them “Bork” Judge Kavanaugh

Written by Dr. Jerry Newcombe

Soon the U.S. Senate will hold hearings as to whether or not to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. One can only imagine the fireworks to come.

Beware of the Saul Alinsky model of the politics of personal destruction. Saul Alinksy, a Marxist and the father of the community organizers, wrote Rules for Radicals (1971), in which he states, “In a fight almost anything goes.… Continue Reading

“Progressives” Suddenly “Woke” to Sexual Harassment!

Written by Laurie Higgins

Youngish Democratic Strategist Christy Setzer, apparently so profoundly ignorant of history, believes that the country has just now become “woke” to the seriousness of the offense of sexual harassment.

During an appearance on “Tucker Carlson TonightWednesday night when asked by Carlson about the dismissive or hostile responses of liberal politicians and their media sycophants to women who accused miscreant Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, Setzer revealed either her ignorance or her deceitfulness or both:

I think when you look back at what happened 25 years ago with the hindsight that we have now, particularly with the national, collective moment that we’re having where women are coming out of the woodwork to finally be able to tell their stories of being sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, being even raped, we’d see [Clinton’s] story and his behavior toward women a lot differently than we did at the time.

Russian Collusion in Democrat Inner Circle?

Written by Karin McQuillan

There has been enthusiastic collusion by the leadership of the Democratic Party with the Russian disinformation campaign to destroy President Donald Trump.  (See “A Brief History of ‘Fake News'” on AmericanThinker.com.)  The Democrat willingness to collude with Russia to overturn our democratically elected president is unprecedented.  There is the infamous case of Ted Kennedy approaching the Kremlin to help Democrats defeat Reagan, but never before has collusion with our enemies by a non-communist party been sustained and widespread.… Continue Reading

LaHood vs. Flynn in the 18th Congressional District Special Election

Mike Flynn

Written by David E. Smith

Good people who vote are beyond weary of all the lying and hypocrisy that goes on in politics.  I suspect many good folks turn off politics entirely because many of our elected officials have abandoned integrity and will say whatever the voters want to hear during a campaign with no intention of keeping their word.… Continue Reading
