Going postal to derail the election

It's Democrats who refuse election results

An appeal for understanding

Americans have been mired in racial turmoil for weeks now and it seems there is no end in sight. All sides are beyond upset, but also somewhat blinded by emotion and manipulated by politics. There are genuine issues at stake, but the looting and...

The second Civil War is here

It is now clear and inescapable that America is under attack; not just physically in every major city, but existentially at every monument across the land. We are long past the initial outrage at the unjust killing of George Floyd and any pretense...

Carney versus Kaepernick

As our major cities smolder upon our 244th Independence Day, some of us may be wondering how many more years we will be able to celebrate our independence and freedom. America has conquered many challenges over the past couple centuries, but this...

Enough! Otherwise it won't end

America has been roiled by rioting for weeks, but what started as protests to voice outrage at the callous unjust killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police was quickly hijacked by domestic terrorists, namely ANTIFA. ANTIFA is an extremist...

Fatherless, Godless, hopeless

America is ablaze literally and figuratively. In a prolonged temper tantrum, anarchists and assorted malcontents have rioted, looted, and burned cities across the country for weeks. Average Americans are aghast watching incessant senseless violence o...

Stop! Stop the madness

Please pause for a moment; take a deep breath and stop whatever you are doing. America is having an anxiety attack. Literally everyone is upset and emotions are fever pitch, and with good reason. After months of questionable quarantine, the nation...

When tragedy is hijacked and our unity is burned

On Memorial Day, the nation was shocked when a horrific video went viral showing the callous senseless killing of a man on the pavement already in hand cuffs. George Floyd was being arrested for allegedly trying to pass counterfeit money. Video shows...

Biden exposes more than Democrat racism

Increasingly pathetic and pitiful, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign has become a comical caricature of awkwardness and incompetence, but it’s not all funny. Besides creepy and weird, Biden has a real knack for incredible gaffes. Easily tongue...

When Americans are afraid

Amid myriad mixed signals about facemasks, incessant sensationalized reporting, and even outright fearmongering, Americans are repeatedly instructed to be afraid. The Chinese corona virus is certainly dangerous, but we are being told this pandemic...

The coup that keeps giving

The wheels of justice move very slowly; sometimes the movement is imperceptible. The Trump Campaign and then the Trump Administration have been under siege for going on four years. Most Americans have known the FBI and CIA spied on the Trump Campaign...

Freedom really is fragile

After about two months of national crisis, the Chinese virus pandemic seems to be giving way to paranoia and power lust. Make no mistake, COVID-19 is a very real threat; it is certainly contagious, viciously attacks the respiratory system, and is...

When socialism goes viral

With any crisis, there always comes accusations, recriminations, and second guessing on what should have or should not have been done. Obviously, the Trump loathing media has just become annoying noise with their incessant snarky sniping about everyt...

Who needs a bomb?

Without a doubt the Chinese corona virus is quite contagious and definitely dangerous for vulnerable Americans with other health issues, but the press’s paranoia pandemic has created a bigger blast than any bomb. No attack or threat has ever...

Yes, America can multitask

Well into the second month of our national crisis caused by the Chinese corona virus, we can with a degree of confidence review what we have learned and with reason consider our next steps. We can definitively say this Chinese bat virus is more...

Paranoia, petulance and misperceptions of faithless

The grave uncertainty created by the Chinese corona virus pandemic can be very stressful. Worrying about you, your family, or vulnerable loved ones contracting this highly dangerous contagion can be daunting; and then there are the very valid...

Panic versus prudence

Adversity brings out the best and worst in people. Fortunately, Americans exude much more goodness in trying times than random acts of greed and malice. For every toilet paper hoarder attempting to profit from these illogical shortages, there are...

Don't waste your quarantine

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. Less than a month ago, the Wuhan virus was just a Chinese virus barely getting any attention as it was rapidly spreading around the globe. Within little more than a couple weeks, it has stunned the world and...

It’s absolutely amazing that just a little more than two months ago few people had ever heard of the corona virus, but in about the last two weeks, this virus from China is shutting down practically the entire world. People around the planet are st...

Can historical prosperity and opportunity compete with free?

After decades of flirting with and even sliding into socialism, Democrats are faced with actually voting for socialism. Oddly enough, even Democrats are now reluctant to leap off the leftist cliff into the socialist abyss. After storming through...
