The clown car that is the Democrat 2020 presidential field just added a new member — Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke. The former punk-band bassist, drunk-driving arrestee, and three-term representative from Texas rose to heartthrob status during his losing bid to take Ted Cruz's Senate seat in 2018. O'Rourke has clearly bought into the hype about himself. Indeed, he coordinated his official announcement this morning with yesterday's release of a nearly…Continue

Several weeks ago, I chronicled here my yearlong battle with the VA (an oxymoronic statement, if there ever was one) over the lung damage and related ear and balance issues I sustained in Fallujah, Iraq, from 2006 to 2007. When I published that article, I was still optimistic. I naively thought that based upon the twelve years of medical records I submitted, the fact that I jumped through every bureaucratic hoop and leapt over every infuriating hurdle the VA…Continue

Speaking on Fox News program Outnumbered, Rick said he knows the drill, and he wants young people to understand it, too:

Eh. It’s a shame that Chris Wallace and Bret Baier have to lose out on an opportunity as sweet as this, but c’mon. This is a network that often operates in primetime as an arm of the White House comms team. The 9 p.m. guy talks to Trump regularly, has been described as his “shadow of chief staff,” and campaigned with him at a rally shortly before the midterms. The former president of the network works in the White House for Trump right now despite the fact that…Continue

She and I don’t agree on much, but on this we have common ground.

Among other awards, Davies won a silver medal in swimming at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow. However, she is now under fire for comments about transgender athletes that some are calling “transphobic.”…

Those promoting CO2 as the reason for global warming are hucksters and those taken in by hucksters.

History teaches that, when candidates are swept into office largely as a result of promising the electorate significant outlays from the treasury, the particular regime in question is at its death knell and on the verge of collapse.
In an attempt to pander to Blacks in this sort of manner, Elizabeth Warren --- identified by Reuters in the account of this policy proposal as White so we can be relieved that the leftist…Continue

The furiously anti-Trump actor said he didn’t know if Cohen was telling the truth but that the former Trump lawyer would help us get past “this nightmare.”
“I don’t know if Michael Cohen is truthful,” Alec Baldwin tweeted on Wednesday, “but if he is, he should get the Congressional Medal of…

Imagine if in some spectacular move, Trump decided to give active and former members of U.S. Congress even more benefits? That he signed an Executive Order that allowed our elected officials to enjoy the same top-notch healthcare that our nation's veterans enjoy under the current U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The results would be…

Several days ago I graduated from the last parts of my Army officer direct commission training and will soon be sent out into the force of the greatest fighting organization the world has ever known.
Coming from the ease and splendor of media, government, and political life in Washington, D.C., the military was initially a major culture shock in nearly…
For decades, secularist and religious progressives have urged their more theologically conservative counterparts to recognize a distinction between those that administer the affairs of the state and those that administer the affairs of faith.
However, with the Trump Presidency, it has become evident that what is meant by that admonition is that those that hold to traditional notions of piety are instead obligated to…Continue
Speculation often treated as fact, and definition may be only in eye of beholder.

One of the more underreported aspects of the Green New Deal advocated by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, is its inflated claim about jobs. According to the official language, it is “a historic opportunity to create millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States.”
Green or “clean energy” jobs are generally framed in positive terms by the mainstream…

The media coverage following President Trump’s Oval Office address on Tuesday night seemed to be missing something. As expected, the Democrats criticized Trump and continued to blame him for the partial government shutdown. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) called it “a degradation of the Oval Office.” The subsequent Chuck and Nancy show became the target of bipartisan derision. One liberal pundit said…Continue

We shouldn’t be surprised that billionaire activist George Soros has jumped into the fray over the funding for President Trump’s border wall. He simply can’t resist the urge to morph into his beloved “master of the universe” role.
Demand Justice is a Soros-financed, left-wing judicial nominee advocacy group. It was founded in early 2018 by Brian Fallon, who served as press secretary for…
