The Democrat Party of Division and Hate

on October 29, 2020, 9:29 AM / in Opinion

The Democrats’ primary political strategy has been, and remains, to foment division, creating fear, anger, and hate. “The crisis is arrived when we must assert our rights, or submit to every imposition that can be heaped upon us, ‘till custom and use shall make us as tame and abject slaves.”  George Washington (1774) This is my last column prior to the […]

Having graduated from a state police academy at age 19, having served as a uniformed police officer for three years while in college, and having carried various law enforcement commissions since then, I’ve always maintained a fraternal relationship with the men and women in blue.

Why Biden/Harris CAN’T Reveal Their Court-Packing Plan

Why Biden/Harris CAN’T Reveal Their Court-Packing Plan

on October 10, 2020, 8:16 AM / in Opinion

Biden, Harris, Pelosi, and Schumer are formidable adversaries of American Liberty. Joe Biden has repeatedly refused to clarify whether he supports or opposes increasing the number of Supreme Court seats — a.k.a. “packing the court” — in order that it will do the Left’s political bidding. Likewise in this week’s VP debate, arrogant leftist Kamala Harris dutifully refused to answer Mike Pence’s repeated questions […]

Warning: A Biden-Harris Constitutional Crisis Just Ahead

on September 22, 2020, 9:31 AM / in Opinion

If the socialist Democrats suffer another Electoral College loss in November, they and their riotous constituents will not go quietly. The Joe Biden/Kamala Harris tag team, combined with the socialist Democrat Party’s collective “enemies of the people,” arguably pose the greatest threat to American Liberty since 1860. Those words will sound too strident for some conservatives who haven’t been paying attention, so it’s high time to […]

The Smear Continues

on September 10, 2020, 8:03 AM / in Opinion

By Gary Bauer  Predictably, the fake news media did their best to make the disgusting smear by The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg the dominant three-day news story over the Labor Day weekend. As you recall, The Atlantic alleged last week that Trump disparaged our veterans during a 2018 trip to France. Sadly, Fox News was indistinguishable in its coverage from the […]

Let’s be clear: Trump did not create the hate; he exposed it. “To prevent crimes, is the noblest end and aim of criminal jurisprudence. To punish them, is one of the means necessary for the accomplishment of this noble end and aim.” —James Wilson (1790) Based on all the information we now have about the 25 May death of George Floyd, the 46-year-old career […]

He told me he rejected Christianity as “the white man’s religion that justified slavery.” He argued Africans taken out of that continent were owed reparations. “From whom?” I asked. Arab slavers took more Africans out of Africa […]

Harris is the real Biden ticket holder, and she is a perilous Trump opponent. “We must make our election between economy and Liberty, or profusion and servitude.” —Thomas Jefferson (1816) It’s official. Joe Biden was informed by his campaign puppeteers that they chose leftist Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) for the bottom (read: “TOP”) of his presidential ticket.
