Thank God for Alabama in the United States

Thanksgiving is the holiday to count our blessings, but if you are reading the news in this wicked world, it can be difficult and even depressing. Poverty is marked by the homeless defecating on the streets of our major cities. Substance abuse is...

 

Impeachment: 2020 campaign platform

Americans have been hearing incessant calls for impeachment pretty much since President Trump was elected. Some are vaguely aware there are actually public hearings for impeachment, but most Americans are paying scant attention and care even less....

 

Communists turn to science

After global cooling fizzled out in the 1970s, we were warned about global warming for a couple decades, but that too failed to gain traction with the masses. Then the global warming alarmists reinvented an impending climate catastrophe as climate...

Democrats cry wolf, but whistleblower is a weasel

Since President Trump was elected, Democrats have been crying wolf. First, it was just the old wily orange wolf that was an illegitimate president because he won the Electoral College but not the popular vote. After finally learning how the...

Time to hide the children

Despite being only some fraction of 1% of our population, we are inundated with trans-gender news and propaganda. Some women want to be men and a few men want to be women, so they can win sports championships. Most Americans find it all just weird;...

Putting America's military first

Another week and another excuse to decry President Trump for imagined or manufactured malfeasance. Democrats and media have suddenly found a war they like; they are howling over Trump’s supposed betrayal of our Kurdish allies in Syria when he...

Impeachment or bust!

Absolutely nothing matters and that means nothing including lack of actual wrong doing. Who needs evidence when hearsay or whatever Congressman Adam Schiff makes up in his so called “parody” convinces the media impeachment is justified....

Balderdash, bollocks & bunk

Witnessing the utter nonsense in Washington over an ostensible whistle blower report about President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president, there are literally not enough words to describe total BS. The crazed liberal media complex and...

 

Climate fools fear monger foolish children in world

Do boys just not care?

Marriage rates in America have been declining for over half a century. In 1960, almost three quarters of Americans were married; now only about half of Americans are married. Dropping about ten percent the past couple decades, marriage rates are...

Theater of the absurd and anti-American

Americans are already suffering through perhaps the longest presidential election in history. Absolutely refusing to accept the results of the 2016 election, many Democrats are still fighting to reverse that result, but with 2020 upon us, dozens of...

Hong Kong struggling to remain free

Literally on the other side of the world, Hong Kong seems too distant and far removed to capture our attention, but Hong Kong is quite relevant with some poignant lessons for all freedom loving people. Occasionally making news in the West, Hong...

White supremacy replaces Russian collusion

After perpetuating a preposterous hoax for over two years, the corrupt cabal of Federal Bureaucrats, Democrats, and media determined to topple President Trump have found a new grotesque lie. The accusation that Trump colluded with Russia to steal...

Trump ends America's racist caste system

Many Americans are probably unfamiliar with a “caste system.” Some may recall from long forgotten Social Studies courses that south Asian societies particularly Hindus subscribed to and some still do to a caste system. A caste system is the...

Let Democrats drag that dead horse

After more than two and half years of Russian collusion frenzy, Democrat fervor for this ridiculous hoax is unlikely to fade. But if you understand Democrats, their insane perseverance is predictable. This whole fiasco was never about Russian...

Trojan horsewomen of color

Dubbed “the squad,” four freshmen Democrat Congresswomen have seized the national spotlight and made quite a splash in Congress. Their elections are remarkable firsts. Representatives Ilhan Omar (MN) and Rashida Tlaib (MI) are the first Muslim wo...

When did sports become partisan?

In our hyper politicized society, there seems to be no respite from partisan politics anymore; it has invaded every faucet of daily life from the car you drive to the coffee you drink. The news is bluntly liberal and sometimes conservative....

Is freedom fading from glory?

The United States of America is 243 years old this Independence Day. For almost two and half centuries, this great nation has guaranteed the freedom Americans enjoy and too often take for granted. We are quick to proclaim and celebrate our freedom....

California moving to silence clergy

For decades after WWII, the Golden State led the country in innovation, prosperity, and progress toward the good life. California set the pace for everything and everyone wanted to go to California. But sadly affluence and apathy allowed absurdity...

Russian collusion supplants American collegiality

Rough and tumble, partisan politics have always been pointed. Cut throat campaigning and bruising elections are common; and passionate philosophical and policy debates are standard fare for American politics. So fierce competition in politics is...

Where have all the fathers gone?

Despite technological conveniences and innovations, modern society is bizarrely skidding toward moral chaos and civil collapse. Our prosperity enhances, excuses, and even masks our cultural decay. We may enjoy unparalleled creature comforts and be...

A controversial waste

After almost two years of intense yet insipid national turmoil, the Special Counsel investigating the 2016 Presidential Election finally completed and submitted their report. Due to previous indictments of several Russians, we knew the Special...
