Saturday night working in my wood shop, I heard a reporter on the radio say, “Trump has found someone else to pick a fight with, the NFL.” Clearly, the reporter wanted listeners to believe Trump was the bad guy. And yet, fake news media swears their reporting is not biased. Leftists are outraged because Trump said, “The NFL should fire or suspend players […]

Republicans have gotten wind of this plan. That something like this is contemplated by Democrats is a sad commentary of where their party has fallen. Obstensibly, the reason is to […]

on September 29, 2017, 7:40 AM / in Opinion

BY CILLIAN ZEAL  /   Conservative Tribune When Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” was canceled this spring in spite of respectable ratings, the show became a rallying point for conservatives around the country.
