The Democrats approached the impeachment with the same cockiness that they approach everything. They thought they'd stomp their feet and run around with their hair on fire, and eventually people would see the righteousness of their cause. But it didn't go down like that. Instead, the Trump defense team opened a can of whoop ass... Read More

Here's your political puzzler for the day: Which of these two things poses a greater threat to the country: An incompetent and boastful president who has no previous government experience and who is rash and impulsive in his dealings with the media, foreign leaders and his critics? Or a political party that collaborates with senior-level... Read More

Let's assume that Black Lives Matter is not a "social justice" movement, but a corporate-sponsored public relations vehicle that's being used to advance the agenda of elites? Is that too much of a stretch? And let's say that the massive protests that erupted across the country were not random or spontaneous events as some people... Read More

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP) is a shadowy group of government, military and media elites who have concocted a plan to spread mayhem and disinformation following the November 3 presidential elections. The strategy takes advantage of the presumed delay in determining the winner of the upcoming election. (due to the deluge of mail-in votes.) The... Read More

Here's your BLM Pop Quiz for the day: What do "Critical Race Theory", "The 1619 Project", and Homeland Security's "White Supremacist" warning tell us about what's going on in America today? They point to deeply-embedded racism that shapes the behavior of white people They suggest that systemic racism cannot be overcome by merely changing attitudes... Read More

The leaders of Black Lives Matter want to "defund the police". They think "systemic racism" and "police brutality" are so bad that police budgets must be cut dramatically in order to reduce the number of cops on the beat. They believe that fewer cops will move the black community closer to their goal of racial... Read More

After 4 years of the most vicious, hyperbolic and incendiary character assassination campaign in the nation's history, the media finally claimed its first fatality in a shootout in Portland on Saturday night. The victim--whose name has not yet been disclosed-- was shot by an (allegedly) Antifa member who saw the man's hat as sufficient provocation... Read More

Kyle Rittenhouse didn't go to Kenosha to shoot protestors; he went to protect the property and lives of the people who were threatened by a rampaging mob that had already destroyed large parts of the city. That's why he was there. He went to fill the security vacuum the Democrat governor and mayor created when... Read More

Here's a question for you: When a young man dressed entirely in black, uses a racial justice protest to conceal himself so he can break windows, incinerate retail shops and cafes, pelt cops with bottles, rocks and fireworks, and spread mayhem across the city, what is the political message he is trying to send? 1--...

The American people are under attack, the country is under attack, and democracy is under attack. At present, the enemy is conducting a three-pronged assault on the presidency the objective of which is to remove the existing administration and install their own sock-puppet replacement. This has been the goal from the very beginning although the... Read More

Which party supported the toppling of historical monuments and statues across the country? Which party's elected officials think that the government does not have the right to defend federal property from vandals, rioters and thugs in Portland?... Read More

How do the Democrats benefit from the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests? While the protests are being used to paint Trump as a race-bating white supremacist, that is not their primary objective. The main goal is to suppress and demonize Trump's political base which is comprised of mainly white working class people who have been... Read More

The imposition of the nationwide lockdowns required elite consensus. There's no way that a project of that magnitude could have been carried out absent the nearly universal support of establishment elites and their lackeys in the political class. There must have also been a fairly-detailed media strategy that excluded the voices of lockdown opponents while--... Read More

Tucker Carlson is right, the protests and riots are not a momentary civil disturbance. They are an attack the Constitutional Republic itself, the heart and soul of American democracy. The Black Lives Matter protests are just the tip of the spear, they are an expression of public outrage that is guaranteed under the first amendment.... Read More
