The last thing mainstream media wants you to know is the country is doing very well economically. Stock prices are up. Lower tax rates means 164 major companies and rising have given back to their employees in the form of raises and bonuses. Jobless claims just hit a 45-year low. Wait, you didn't hear about that last … Continue reading Jobless claims hit 45-year low, and mainstream media is silent
If you're a conservative who uses Twitter, you're likely very aware that your Tweets don't get the same amount of attention as liberals' Tweets. A good chunk of this can be attributed to the nature of social media itself; there are simply more liberals using it. I've often attributed this to the notion that conservatives … Continue reading What you already knew about Twitter is worse than you thought
I haven't been the biggest fan of Steve Bannon's since I started seeing his true colors a couple of years ago. It's not his ideology; I agree with him more often than not, though his alt-right leanings have been a concern. I didn't care for the way he goes about getting his agenda done. It's … Continue reading Is Steve Bannon done?
Jobs are coming back. Wages are going up. Taxes are going down. Consumer spending is at a pre-2007 level. The economy is looking poised to have a strong continuation in 2018 from the progress made in 2017. There are still many things that can derail it quickly, but the biggest risk is born from a … Continue reading The biggest economic threat in 2018 is a power-hungry, Democrat-loving mainstream media
It took them nearly a year to pass anything meaningful. This fact is absolutely ridiculous as they've had over six years to prepare for the inevitable control of the House, Senate, and White House once Obamacare passed and sealed the short-term fate of the Democrats. Coming into 2017 flatfooted and disorganized was inexcusable, but that's … Continue reading GOP’s agenda in 2018: Get more stuff done
The United Nations Security Council is considering a draft resolution nullifying any move by any nation to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The resolution does not mention the United States or President Trump, but let's be honest. This is all about the United States and President Trump after he kept his promise and … Continue reading It’s the U.N. versus the U.S. over Jerusalem. Guess who wins that matchup.
When the United States officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reactions around the world were pretty much what everyone expected. Anti-Israel activists were up in arms from San Francisco to the EU. Muslim countries protested. Violence broke out in Israel. Mild objections came from some of our allies, including Saudi Arabia. One of … Continue reading Will Israeli-Palestinian peace be brokered by Saudi Arabia?
There was such high hopes for Republicans going into 2017. A GOP-controlled House and Senate putting legislation on a Republican President's desk is exactly what they've been asking for since Barack Obama first took office. Voters delivered. All was well in the world. 2017 was going to be the year the GOP finally got stuff … Continue reading Holes in the tax plan are appearing. Imagine if they didn’t rush it for an arbitrary deadline.
Al Franken's resignation is one thing for the Democrats: part of a strategy. They will pretend to lament, but they realize they're not really losing anything they hadn't already lost when the allegations were first made. He will be replaced by another liberal Democrat, one who doesn't have the baggage Franken has accumulated. Behind closed … Continue reading Al Franken’s resignation just helped the Democrats for the midterm elections
Despite prognostications by #NeverTrumpers going into President Trump's first year in office, he hasn't been the liberal Democratic plant some expected him to be. I expected a couple of liberal programs and policies to hit this year, but so far they have all been pushed forward. 2017 has focused on Obamacare repeal, dismantling the regulatory … Continue reading Conservatives, prepare to be the voice of reason if the GOP lurches left in 2018
When a politician can't change the direction of the winds, they tend to give up and flow with them. Such is the case for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi who has spent a week defending Representative John Conyers. Her days of defending him appear to be done. This should be the final straw that broke … Continue reading Pelosi turns on Conyers, calls for him to resign
There are many things to be thankful for in America. If you're reading this, you're alive... let's not forget the big things. We don't have Hillary Clinton in the White House. Stranger Things 2 was really good. Neil Gorsuch. Longmire finally released its final season. I could go on about all the blessings I've received, but … Continue reading The homeless vet story we needed for Thanksgiving
Today, Mick Mulvaney said something shocking. He declared if the Senate tax cut bill was getting stalled over repealing the individual mandate, then the White House would be okay with killing off that portion. Huh? What Republican would oppose the tax cuts specifically because they had the individual mandate repeal attached to them? Can anyone … Continue reading No Republican should stall tax cuts to save the individual mandate
Sylvester Stallone. Al Franken. Harvey Weinstein. Kevin Spacey. Roy Moore. These men and countless others are on a list that's growing every day. Our modern sensibilities can be blamed for a whole lot of bad in this world from abandonment of a Biblical worldview to embracing failed ideologies such as socialism. One thing that has … Continue reading Reflecting on sexual misconduct by powerful men in the modern age
When the story broke an hour ago that Roy Moore was being accused by multiple women of inappropriate sexual behavior when they were underage teens, I thought, "uh oh." Then, I saw the source: Washington Post. A short wave of relief came over me before the real dread of our current situation took hold. I … Continue reading Roy Moore, WaPo, and the problem with an untrustworthy press
