Will Big Government Bully Your Radio & Television Stations Off the Air?

Will Big Government Bully Your Radio & Television Stations Off the Air? Over the last decade, the United States has experienced a very apparent and widespread explosion of demand for wireless data. Cellular networks now use an unprecedented amount of bandwidth each month due to the onset of streaming and social media applications such as Netflix and Twitter; however, the success of these services hinges upon an out of date and nearly obsolete broadband network. Problems with reliability prompted a reaction from the FCC to improve the infrastructure that supports these networks with the intention…

MSNBC Host Shocked when he Realizes that Russia had Almost No Impact on the Election

MSNBC Host Shocked when he Realizes that Russia had Almost No Impact on the Election MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is not the most far-left partisan at work on MSNBC, but he’s close. Hayes is as ham-fisted a liberal as you’ll find on TV and earlier this week he was shocked to learn (on his own show, no less) that the Russians had minimal impact on the 2016 election. In fact, you can see it all in his initial response. When his guest (also a liberal) from the New Yorker, tells Hayes that the Russians played an almost…

Podcast: Mandatory union fees and the First Amendment

Podcast: Mandatory union fees and the First Amendment The Supreme Court is considering arguments in a case that could have a huge effect on public-section unions and their membership. The case of Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) will be heard on February 26 at the Court. The question in front of the nine Justices is if public-sector “agency shop” arrangements -- payments that workers represented by a union must pay even if they are not dues-paying members -- should be invalidated under the First Amendment.

CPAC Free Speech Crackdown Prompts Pissed Off Pam Geller To Cancel

CPAC Free Speech Crackdown Prompts Pissed Off Pam Geller To Cancel While there is little debate over the fact that free speech in America is under attack, some of the battlefields in this war have been a bit surprising. The most common concern among lovers of liberty in the United States as of late has been that of protecting the First Amendment.  This all important piece of the Bill of Rights is inalienable by definition, but that hasn’t stopped the maniacal miscreants of the liberal left from imposing their will upon the law of the land by…

College Labeled “Racist” After Serving “Black History” Menu in Dining Hall

College Labeled “Racist” After Serving “Black History” Menu in Dining Hall One of the most incredible pieces of American hypocrisy has long dwelled on the left side of politics, thanks to the incessant need for political correctness in liberal circles. There are few same Americans left who can wholly argue for the continued installation of cultural speed bumps in this day and age, having long exposed the concept of political correctness as nothing more than a liberal ploy to control the language of our nation.  The idea is that, by completely flipping the table on…

Trump Looking to Revoke Religious Tax Exemptions, Say Inside Sources

Trump Looking to Revoke Religious Tax Exemptions, Say Inside Sources When it comes to organized religion, one of the biggest pet peeves of the ultra-liberal left seems to be the tax exempt status shared by religions around the nation, regardless of their creed, age, or population. Of course, this is still America, a nation discovered and then founded on the principle of freedom, with liberty and religious expression sharing a symbiotic relationship within the confines of our all-powerful Constitution.  The left can whine all they want, but religion must remain a widely inclusive label for organizations of faith,…

Student Survivor Ditches Town Hall After CNN Hands Him SCRIPT

Student Survivor Ditches Town Hall After CNN Hands Him SCRIPT It’s no surprise to anyone that the mainstream media has some awfully dirty tricks up their sleeves, but CNN’s treatment of school shooting survivors as props requires addressing. It is nearly impossible for any of us to imagine the grief and sorrow of those involved in a tragedy such as the Parkland, Florida school shooting of a week ago.  Seventeen lives were lost on that fateful day, and those seventeen lives touched countless people within the tight knight community at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.…

Soros Talks Big on Global Warming, But What About His Bank Account?

Soros Talks Big on Global Warming, But What About His Bank Account? While there are certainly those who tend to “tune out” when talk of George Soros and “globalism” arrives in their feed, the truth of the matter is something that none of us can afford to ignore. Soros, who is a multi-billionaire of the highest order, aligns himself wholeheartedly with the liberal left due to his unapologetic obsession with the concept of globalism – or the idea that the world should be governed as one, as opposed to recognizing the sovereignty and inherent differences of…

Liberals Jeer and Humiliate Pro 2nd Amendment Rape Survivor on CNN There is no accounting of the behavior of the delusional democrats in 2018, who are openly exploiting tragedy in order to push a political agenda. Such is predictably the case with last week’s atrocious act of violence by 19 year old Nikolas Cruz in Parkland, Florida.  Cruz, a mentally ill teen who had been reported to police and the FBI roughly 40 times, had a premeditated plan to visit his former high school and kill, as evidenced by some of the comments he was…

Fascinating facts about George Washington for his real birthday

Fascinating facts about George Washington for his real birthday The national holiday called Washington's Birthday may have passed, but today is George Washington’s real birthday. Here are interesting facts about the first president, including his wealth, his career as a distiller, and the truth about those teeth. Washington served a unique role as a military leader during the Revolution, as president of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, and the nation’s first president under the Constitution. The void was great when Washington stepped down from office in 1797. The job description of president was pretty much…

Even After Bump Stock Ban, Trump Not Finished With Gun Restrictions!

Even After Bump Stock Ban, Trump Not Finished With Gun Restrictions! President Donald Trump campaigned heavily on his own undying support for the American 2nd Amendment, but now, some of the President’s supporters aren’t so sure about that. In the wake of last week’s Parkland, Florida school shooting, the predicable liberal pressure on the 2nd Amendment came in droves.  The left has always been pushy about guns in the wake of such tragedies, hoping to exploit the heightened emotions of the situation to manipulate minds.  By preying on the grief-stricken, the left is pushing their…

CNN Sends Reporter to Elderly Citizen’s Home to Harass Her About Trump

CNN Sends Reporter to Elderly Citizen’s Home to Harass Her About Trump It takes a fairly large amount of testicular fortitude to be CNN, we’ll give them that.  The sheer absurdity of their behavior is truly something to behold these last few months. Once considered a source of “news”, CNN has long eschewed that vestige in favor of the far more lucrative endeavor of entertainment.  With scripted programming and well-time cliffhangers within their “unscripted” news coverage, the network has become an addictive source of light and sound for the liberal left.

Is George Soros Puppeteering Parkland Survivors? Sheriff Says YES! When our nation is forced to come together and mourn, there will always be the grand leeches of world keeping a keen eye on the proceedings, hoping to suckle any last drops of power from the teat of sorrow. Such is true no matter the tragedy.  These cannibalistic overlords have long since abandoned shame and dignity for the good stuff:  Unbridled access and power across the globe.  Nothing is off limits to these ultra-wealthy magnates, and their ultimate hope is to be virtually omnipotent. That’s why…

Parkland Conspiracy Theories Get Florida House Aide CANNED!

In this modern era of YouTube, Alex Jones, jet fuel, and steel beams, every major tragedy in America quickly finds itself being assaulted by conspiracy theorists.  The Parkland, Florida high school shooting is no exception. In truth, there really are no exceptions to the rule.  September 11th, 2001 – a day in which thousands of Americans were killed – hasn’t even been immune from the perverse touch of the tinfoil hatted.  The theories surrounding that particular tragedy are only rivaled in size and scope by the amateur research…

U.S. Warship Set to Accompany Russian Fleet in “Desensitization” Effort

U.S. Warship Set to Accompany Russian Fleet in “Desensitization” Effort When it comes to the archetypal conflicts between world superpowers, no single incident has permeated more deeply in to our culture than the Cold War between the United States and the USSR. Now Russia, the then Soviet Union was the quintessential bad guy.  Mysterious, nefarious, bold, and secretive, the USSR filled the role of super villain nicely.  Their ties to Cuba only enhanced their evil appearance, having their red tentacles within arm’s reach of paradise in Florida.

The Stat Liberals Ignore – Comparing Homicide Rates to Gun Ownership

The Stat Liberals Ignore – Comparing Homicide Rates to Gun Ownership If you keep an eye on the media these days, you may notice that whenever they talk about guns, they talk about “gun homicide” as well. As if these two figures are inextricably linked and tell the whole story of the gun debate. It’s simply not so. An interesting graph that appeared on Facebook reminded me of the lies the anti-gunners tell using cherry-picked crime stats. Here’s the graph: Notice that it measures the international homicide rate as well as the per capita gun…

Delinquent Taxpayers Will Soon Become Political Prisoners of The IRS

Delinquent Taxpayers Will Soon Become Political Prisoners of The IRS Americans have, for literally their entire existence, been wholly opposed to the idea that the government could use taxes to subdue its people. This was, of course, the very impetus of the nation to begin with.  The Boston Tea Party – the primordial ooze from which these United States crawled – was explicitly a demonstration against the brutish tax burden that the colonists endured under British rule.  We quickly went from making a whole lot of tea in a harbor to telling the Redcoats where to…

During the incident, 19 year old Nikolas Cruz entered his former high school intent on creating carnage.  Unfortunately, the severely mentally ill young man had evaded detection by authorities, simply due to the FBI’s complete and utter incompetence.  This allowed Cruz to plot and plan his attack unmolested by authorities, and procure a firearm that he should never have been…

Trump is Playing 4D Chess with Endorsement of Wiley Willard in Utah

Part of the reason that elections are so often an addicting spectacle to behold is similar to the idea of trying a new cigar or scotch:  Perhaps the next bottle to be opened or stogie lit will be the one that becomes forever enshrined in your life.

So far, Robert Mueller has spent months upon months working the case for “collusion” between the Russian government and the Donald Trump campaign of 2016.  Still, he has very, very little to show for it.  There’s a Paul Manafort plea deal still lingering somewhere out in the ether, but even that has been considered a “nothing burger” by the same mainstream media…

In Tennessee Republicans Support Conservative over Anti-Trump Incumbent

In Tennessee Republicans Support Conservative over Anti-Trump Incumbent Republicans in Tennessee have an amazing opportunity this election cycle. They have a chance to dump a moderate, anti-Trump Republican and replace him with a strong conservative voice. A few months ago, Volunteer State Republicans breathed a huge sigh of relief when incumbent Senator, Bob Corker (R-TN) announced his retirement. Almost immediately, the brilliant and strong Tennessee conservative, Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), currently a Congresswoman representing the state’s 7th District, announced that she would be running to replace Corker. This past week Corker announced that he was reconsidering…

Political Scientists Rate Trump the Worst President Ever

Political Scientists Rate Trump the Worst President Ever Well what did you expect? These are college professors, for God’s sake. President Trump rated last, right below James Buchanan, who set the stage for the Civil War. He was several places behind Millard Fillmore, who is remembered as the greatest man ever to be named “Millard.” Barack Obama is the eighth best president ever. […] Full Story

Democratic Dreams of a Congressional Takeover Imperiled

Democratic Dreams of a Congressional Takeover Imperiled Uh oh. Take the champagne back off the ice. Democrats have little idea of what to do about running the country, other than hating on Trump. Maybe they think Robert Mueller’s investigation will somehow erase the wage gap or get Kim Jong-Un to stop his nuclear weapons program. Anyway, just being against something seems to […] Full Story

Illegal Immigrant Population in Los Angeles Drops after ICE Sweep

Illegal Immigrant Population in Los Angeles Drops after ICE Sweep From the Daily Caller News Foundation: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) carried out raids on more than 100 businesses in the Los Angeles area last week, arresting 212 illegal immigrants over the course of several days. ICE’s operation comes after January rumors that the organization was planning a massive immigration sweep in California in retaliation to the state’s sanctuary immigration policies. The rumored operation was supposed to target California-based businesses employing illegal immigrants, and last week’s operation issued inspection notices to 122 businesses in addition to arresting…

Missing the Point of Feminism

Missing the Point of Feminism Feminism   I am missing the point of feminism and the hatred of men who have loved and protected them.   Why does the ugliest woman always pretend that she was raped?   You are a woman who takes up boxing and wants to be a man even though you hate them.   You wear froufrou dresses to tempt men into annoying you.   You never pick up a check when a man is near.   Then there are the rapists who really abuse you and they should be killed…

The Supreme Court takes on a big Double Jeopardy case

The Supreme Court takes on a big Double Jeopardy case On Tuesday morning, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a dispute about a defendant’s claim to double jeopardy if they have multiple trials related to one incident. In Currier v. Virginia, the debate in the Court is about a concept called issue preclusion. Also known as collateral estoppel, issue preclusion is the legal idea that a defendant can’t be tried for the same issue in more than one criminal trial. But what happens when a defendant, charged with three crimes related to an incident,…

A big day in the history of the United States Postal Service

A big day in the history of the United States Postal Service On February 20, 1792, President George Washington officially created the modern United States Postal Service by signing a sweeping act that promoted a free press and put privacy safeguards in place. Mail delivery and an earlier version of the Service had been in place since 1775, when Benjamin Franklin was named as the first postmaster and the Continental Congress paid him a salary of $1,000 a year. The Articles of Confederation, which preceded the Constitution, also made it clear that the government “shall…

Portland Campus Protestors Obliterate P.A. to Silence Conservatives

Portland Campus Protestors Obliterate P.A. to Silence Conservatives In order to fully understand the horrendous reality surrounding the liberal fight to ruin free speech in America, we must first have a brief lesson in semantics. The liberal left likes to call themselves the antidote to “Fascism”, but reality tells us something much different.  For instance, here is the agreed upon definition of Fascism: “a political system based on a very powerful leader, statecontrol of social and economic life, and extreme pride in country and race, with no expression of political disagreement allowed”. Of course, what’s missing from this antiquated definition is the extreme prejudice that has become inherent in political parties, especially those in America.  The most fervent…

The GOP is Running The Table in Texas With Nearly 90% of The State’s … Americans are acutely aware of just how special our great state of Texas truly is, but today, a new reason to marvel at the Lone Star State has arrived. Texas is, itself, almost a nation of its own.  The fiercely independent republic, whose land mass is roughly the equivalent of the entirety of France plus Switzerland, spans hundred of thousands of square miles.  Furthermore, at it’s most grandeur, there are cities both contained within Texas that are over 840 miles apart.   When they…

New Pennsylvania congressional map boosts Democrats

New Pennsylvania congressional map boosts Democrats Claiming full authority to do so, a deeply divided Pennsylvania Supreme Court drew up and released on Monday its own new map of congressional election districts – one that experts calculated would give Democratic candidates a realistic chance of picking up three or more seats than they have been able to win in the past three elections in the state. Republican leaders of the Pennsylvania legislature already had promised a challenge, in one or more courts, if the state’s highest court took on itself the task of drafting new election boundaries…

North Korean Olympians Destined for Concentration Camps Upon Return

North Korean Olympians Destined for Concentration Camps Upon Return When it comes to cruelty, depravity, and despotism, there is no one who holds a candle to the absurdly abhorrent Kim Jong Un and his North Korean regime. Kim, a “supreme” leader of the hermit kingdom by horrendous heredity, has shown absolutely no desire to turn back the clock on the nation’s putrid treatment of its citizens. North Koreans have long suffered under the Kim regime, whose longstanding and tyrannical abuses go far beyond anything else that we have witnessed in the modern world.  Through the…

America, Please Dump This ‘President’s Day’ Nonsense

America, Please Dump This ‘President’s Day’ Nonsense Monday, February 19 has been designated as “President’s Day,” another fake holiday seemingly meant to tear down American heroes and replace them with a meaningless day off work (for some). But I urge you, America, reject this sham holiday. I never celebrate this “President’s Day” business. I might celebrate the presidents individually, sure, but not the whole gaggle of them on the same day. I mean, it isn’t celebrating any of them if you are celebrating all of them. After all, we don’t celebrate the birthdays of all…

The Obama Legacy: Weaponizing Government Agencies Against Conservatives

The Obama Legacy: Weaponizing Government Agencies Against Conservatives Remember how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS against Republicans? You won’t hear it on the news, but the Obama administration also weaponized the FBI against the Trump campaign. No, I’m not speaking in hyperbole. The short answer is that Obama’s FBI used the fake Trump dossier to launch a fake investigation so they could spy on the Trump campaign. Here’s what we found out in the Grassley-Graham memo: Everything in the Nunes Memo was true, based on better sourcing and more information than Nunes had. The…

I’m of course referring to our federal intelligence services which have become highly politicized, appear to only be interested in protecting the aforementioned democrats, and it seems have become less competent since they’ve become politicized. The Sandy Hook massacre not withstanding, three of the latest most high profile mass-shootings/bombings have the FBI’s bungling fingerprints all over them. The Sandy Hook, Adam Lanza, school shooting was bungled by local authorities. They were warned of Lanza’s…

The Supreme Court’s options on DACA

The Supreme Court’s options on DACA On Friday evening, the Supreme Court closed up shop for the holiday weekend without doing anything about DACA – that is, the Trump Administration’s appeal seeking review of its decision to shut down the program of “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.”  That program, in effect for well over five years, has allowed nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants to avoid deportation – a fate they otherwise could confront because they do not have formal legal approval to remain. They were brought to this country when they were children by their…

A controversial executive order leads to internment camps On this day in 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt issued his most-controversial executive order, an act that sent more than 100,000 people  to government-controlled facilities because of their ethnicity. On December 7, 1941, Japanese military forces attacked the United States base in Hawaii without warning. More than 2,000 Americans died in the attack, and a united Congress answered President Roosevelt’s request for war. Roosevelt issued Presidential Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942,, after fears generated by the Japanese attack made the safety of America’s West Coast a…

What factor would have given us Samuel Tilden, Willie Mangum or Aaron Burr as the nation’s leader? As written in 1787, the Constitution gave a broad outline of how the presidency changed hands in elections, or through the process of succession by statute or constitutional amendment. Four constitutional amendments refined this process. The 12th Amendment dealt with the disputed election of 1800, which ended up in…

Why Presidents Day isn’t really a national holiday

Why Presidents Day isn’t really a national holiday Millions of Americans will be honoring the legacy of America’s presidents on Monday—even though a national Presidents Day holiday is pure fiction. Officially, the holiday has another name. The annual event is also pegged to a gigantic motor vehicle sales push in neighborhoods across the country, which is definitely not fictional. To set the record straight, the third Monday in February is a federal holiday, meaning that federal employees get the day off and federal offices are closed. Officially, the holiday is called Washington’s Birthday, to honor…

Three weeks later, Abraham Lincoln did likewise, to much different results. Davis had been a highly visible figure in Washington, D.C. as a pro-slavery and states' rights advocate from Mississippi. Earlier his life, Davis was the son-in-law of future President Zachary Taylor. After graduating from West Point, Davis served in the military and Congress, and he was Secretary of War for…

Disgusting Prank Prompts FBI Intervention at Utah High School

Disgusting Prank Prompts FBI Intervention at Utah High School If we’re being honest, Utah has a bit of a reputation for the comfortable, albeit a bit mundane existence of some of its residents.

On this day: A tied presidential election ends in the Washington

On this day: A tied presidential election ends in the Washington It was on this day in 1801 that the House finally decided a tied presidential election because of a constitutional flaw: the deadlocked race between Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. It took 36 ballots in the House before Jefferson, with help from his rival, Alexander Hamilton, defeated Burr. The election only added to the animosity between Hamilton and Burr, leading in part to the 1804 duel that left Hamilton dead and Vice President Burr charged with murder.

The first chink in the armor came during the 2016 presidential election in which the bureau, then under the tutelage of ineffective imbecile James Comey, colluded with, and refused to charge, Hillary Clinton with any crime in relation to her obviously illegal handling of a private email server while operating as Secretary of State under Barack Obama.…

INDICTMENTS BEGIN: Robert Mueller Charges 13 in Russia Conspiracy

INDICTMENTS BEGIN: Robert Mueller Charges 13 in Russia Conspiracy For an unbearable series of months, the United States has been forced to listen to the incessant whining of the liberal left over the election of populist President Donald Trump. Trump, who made a fool of democratic diva Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, was an absolute revelation for the leftists of the nation, who no longer could claim the sort of empirical stranglehold on culture that they believed the mainstream media gave them.  The American conservative awakening was now in full force, and the nation…

Liberal Media Pushes Hoax That Florida Killer is Member of ‘White Supremacist Group’

Liberal Media Pushes Hoax That Florida Killer is Member of ‘White Supremacist Group’ The media spent all day Thursday knocking itself out to “report” that Parkland school shooter Nicholas Cruz was part of a “white supremacist” group. But it turns out that the media was punk’d and the whole claim was a hoax. We all know that the left-wing, old media establishment is the first sector of American society to warn us all not to “jump to conclusions” over religion when a killer who is suspected of being a Muslim gets in the news. The…

The Matriarchy Is Gunning For John Kelly

The Matriarchy Is Gunning For John Kelly What would Joan Rivers (allegedly) say about Rob Porter? Until her untimely death, the iconic comedienne was a personality that had somehow lived on into our post-personality era. Until his #MeToo ex-wives began baying for his blood, Mr. Porter, as good as dead politically, was President Trump’s White House staff secretary. If the irreverent Rivers were alive today, she’d most certainly joke about Porter, the man upon whom America’s deranged matriarchy has descended: “They should rehire Rob Porter. He is now the most vetted man in the world.”…

Media Fear Mongers (and Lies) about School Shootings

Media Fear Mongers (and Lies) about School Shootings Why is the mainstream media constantly trying to drive fear into the hearts of the American people? Countless media reports (see here, here, and here for a few examples) have been claiming that the shooting in Florida was the 18th school shooting of 2018, implying that we were undergoing some kind of “gun crisis” in our schools. Thankfully, the media is again lying to us, attempting to gin up an extra level (unnecessarily) of terror within our populace. There have not been 17 other events like the…

School Shootings, Technology, and the Left’s Absence of Meaning

School Shootings, Technology, and the Left’s Absence of Meaning A caller to Mark Levin’s radio show Thursday night made an excellent point. We’ve always had guns in our society. But it’s only recently that we have had this cascade of school and other mass shootings. So the guns haven’t changed. But something else has. It’s of course easier to talk about restricting guns than […] Full Story
