on August 21, 2019, 8:32 AM / in Opinion

Back in July, consumer confidence in the economy soared to the highest level of 2019. The Leftmedia, propaganda arm of the Democrat Party that it is, couldn’t abide such optimism, so over the last three weeks American consumers have been inundated with stories designed to undermine that confidence.

Indoctrinating and Radicalizing Mass Murderers

on August 14, 2019, 5:29 PM / in Opinion

Leftist political “gun control” theatrics versus the root causes of sociopathic violence in America… After three decades of researching the pathology of mass shooters, I’m convinced that four primary factors are almost universally associated with these murderers: a sociopathic predisposition; a history of violent media saturation that indoctrinates and desensitizes them; an opening to be self- or group-radicalized within an […]

If these leftist cadres haven’t yet infiltrated a Republican district near you, they are coming. Mark Alexander Recently, there was a “near miss” in the conservative state of Tennessee.

They didn’t […]

Elijah Cummings IS a Racist

on August 1, 2019, 7:05 AM / in Opinion

Democrats hope shrieking “racism” will keep black voters on their plantation through 2020. “We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a […]

Some millennials have summoned the courage to step out of their generation’s jack-boot political dogma. At last week’s 75th Anniversary D-Day observance, after President Donald Trump delivered his remarks, Susan Eisenhower, by virtue of the fact that she’s the granddaughter of Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower, received some media attention. She offered some observations of her own about the young men […]

‘Gay’ Flag Displaces Veterans Memorial POW/MIA Flag

on June 13, 2019, 10:14 AM / in National News, Opinion

It’s “pride month,” which means all manner of shenanigans are happening nationwide. In the increasingly leftist People’s Republic of Maryland, where, like northern Virginia, right-thinking grassroots Americans are under siege by hordes of DC bureaucrats flooding into their suburbs and taking over their state and local governments, another example of the resulting left-think effluent is flying high. On Monday, in the DC […]

on June 11, 2019, 9:12 AM / in National News, Opinion

Following President Donald Trump’s weekend announcement that the U.S. and Mexico had reached an immigration deal averting his tariff threat, Democrats and the Leftmedia jumped to spin the narrative as little more than Trump engaging in political grandstanding. They couldn’t be more wrong. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi bloviated, “President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly […]

Inheritance Welfare Liberals — The Effluent of Generational Wealth and Privilege

on May 30, 2019, 8:29 AM / in National News, Opinion

Irony: Legions of leftist cadres hate the wealthy elite benefactors who gave them rise. “I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
