Nadlers-Fantasy-cropped

Congressional Oversight, or Abuse of Power?

You’ve got to hand it to Jerry Nadler and the Democrats.  They know just how to sound righteous, patriotic, and even noble when they want to.  For two years, they posed as champions of democracy, railing about treason at the highest levels of government.  “America deserves better,” they proclaimed. And today when they’re pontificating about …

Hungry for power, Dems have no appetite for impeachment

The release of the Mueller report should have finally silenced President Trump’s Democrat critics who for two years have fueled the false narrative that he and his campaign colluded with the Russian government to win his election.  Mueller’s exhaustive investigation has proven conclusively their destructive, and very likely concocted allegations were pure fantasy.  But hard …

Illegal aliens are always welcome in sanctuary cities. Right?

It was only a matter of time.  Even President Trump’s most bitter critics have to admit that he has a unique ability to express, usually with unvarnished candor, the innermost thoughts and concerns weighing on the minds of middle-class Americans.  His recent suggestion to send the masses of illegal immigrants flooding across our borders to …

Crowd of people on Brooklyn Bridge

What Does the Brooklyn Bridge Have to do with Socialized Medicine?

The idea of Medicare for all, as proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, and many others on the left, sounds amazing.  They’re a little vague on details, but as I understand it, everyone on U.S. soil, whether they pay into the system or not, would be entitled to free quality healthcare from birth until death.  …

Pelosi-Schumer Partial Shutdown of 2019

A Lull in the Battle Over American Sovereignty

“How Pelosi won the shutdown battle.” That was one of the Politico headlines following President Trump’s announcement of an agreement reopening the government. But the article never mentioned that this is only a lull in the battle, a three-week suspension. Slate reported that Pelosi stood up to an “obstinate” president. It didn’t mention that she …

The Democrats’ Fluid and Cynical Immigration Policy

“Monolithic” is one word often used to describe the Democrat Party.  Whether it’s universal health care, abortion, or opposition to President Trump, Democrats invariably stand united.  But even loyal party members must find it hard to tow the party line on immigration, when the party line continuously changes. Not that long ago, Democrats were united …

Obamacare 2.0? Democrats are Poised to Compound a Problem They Created

It seems like only yesterday that Democrat lawmakers unilaterally passed the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. At the time, it was a widely unpopular law that was sold to the American people on false promises. It deprived countless individuals of their existing health insurance policies and their preferred doctors. Its oppressive regulations stifled …

Devious Democrats Break the Weakest Link in Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Process

As was widely predicted, the congressional testimonies of Dr. Christine Ford and Judge Brett Kavanagh did nothing to conclusively prove or disprove the allegations against Kavanaugh. Dr. Ford came across as a credible witness, sincere and sympathetic. She appeared on the verge of tears when recounting the molestation that allegedly occurred 36 years ago. She …

Republicans must not cower in the face of Democratic treachery

From the very beginning, Democratic lawmakers made it clear they intended to oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Deeply enmeshed in the resistance movement and anti-Trump hysteria, the rationale for their opposition is clear. Kavanaugh is a conservative judge, nominated by a president they revile. Their desperation to derail his nomination was made …

Illegal Aliens, Devious Politicians, and Hidden Agendas

As the mid-term election approaches, the subject of illegal immigration is again heating up. The two major parties, once in general agreement on the issue, now have diametrically opposing views. Republicans want to eliminate illegal immigration, while welcoming legal immigrants. On the other side, Democrats are resisting all efforts to control our borders. Though they …
