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.

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. Our sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, […]

Trump Is NOT ‘Starting a Trade War’ With China

on May 23, 2019, 7:00 AM / in Opinion

For the record, the U.S. has been the target of a very costly and perilous trade war with China for decades. “Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake; since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of Republican Government.” —George Washington (1796) The […]

Joe Biden and the Collective Constituencies Strategy

on May 2, 2019, 6:29 AM / in Opinion

Field a lot of candidates, raise a lot of money, and fold each candidate’s constituents into an amalgam of general-election voters. “No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and virtue is preserved. On the contrary, when people are universally ignorant, and debauched in their manners, they will sink under their […]

Mueller Is Done, but the Democrats’ MAGA Obstruction Continues

on April 25, 2019, 8:51 AM / in National News, Opinion

Democrats have spent the last two years using their “Russia collusion” subterfuge to undermine real progress for all Americans — and will spend the next two years doing the same thing. “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and […]

Rigging Electoral Demo-Graphics to Guarantee Leftist Rule

Rigging Electoral Demo-Graphics to Guarantee Leftist Rule

on April 11, 2019, 8:45 AM / in Opinion

The Demo strategy to transform our Constitutional Republic into a permanent populist democracy. Every day since Donald Trump’s electoral victory over Hillary Clinton in November of 2016, leaders of the now-socialist Democrat Party and their deranged legions of “useful idiots” have claimed that the election was stolen. This theme fueled Robert Mueller’s contrived Russian-collusion investigation into how Trump and the Russians conspired to defeat Clinton. But as it turns out, they […]

By Thomas Gallatin   Ignoring a problem won’t make it go away. Neither will claiming that it is not a problem. But maybe worst of all is actually acknowledging the problem, claiming to want to work to solve it, and then doing nothing. That latter response has essentially been the modus operandi of Congress regarding illegal immigration and border security […]
