Old King Coal Still Rules The Land Down Under

October 11, 2021 by

Is God A Republican?

October 10, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ Most of us who look at Joe Biden sitting in the Oval Office would love the chance to ask God why He has forsaken us. The other day I found myself thinking that because the Left has gained control of so many things (the media; pop culture; academia from kindergarten through […]

Elephants In The Hood

October 3, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ If you don’t get the reference, it’s because you never saw a certain segment on some news show years ago. There are so many terrible things taking place in America, it’s hard to keep track of them. And hard as it is to believe, not all of them are Joe Biden’s […]

The Fourth Reich

September 28, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ There are obvious parallels to life in Germany before Nazism fully took hold. I keep hearing those on the Left calling out people for daring to compare America in 2021 to Germany in the late 20s and early 30s. At first blush, it can seem a bit over the top. After […]

The Miraculously Immune

September 26, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ “Health experts” would have us believe that only Americans — specifically white Republicans — can get Covid.

Let George Do It

September 19, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ George Washington warned us to avoid entangling alliances. When I heard that Joe Biden and Britain’s Boris Johnson had agreed to a New Atlantic Charter, my blood ran a little colder than usual.

Scientifically Improved Crops: Expediting Africa’s War Against Poverty

September 13, 2021 by

The Dogs Of War

September 12, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ Four hundred military service dogs were left at the Kabul Airport.

20 Years Later, Battered But Not Beaten

September 11, 2021 by


By Nate Jackson ~ Properly remembering 9/11 is far tougher after Joe Biden surrendered Afghanistan. Twenty years ago tomorrow, on a crystal clear September morning, terror struck America. Nineteen jihadi hijackers murdered 2,977 Americans. Yet that assault united every American in the effort to, as President George W. Bush put it, “take the fight to […]

We’re Not The Only Crazy Ones

September 5, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ Even in far off New Zealand, the politicians have the people locked down. It wasn’t that long ago that I wanted everyone in the world to be more like Americans, and for the life of me I couldn’t imagine why they all didn’t just try harder. But that was then and […]

America Deserves Answers On Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal

August 31, 2021 by


By Thomas Spoehr ~ Viewing the chaos, death, and destruction accompanying the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, Americans have many unanswered questions.

The Swinging Pendulum

August 29, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ Inevitably, in overcompensating in favor of one group, you wind up mistreating others. It is probably inevitable that in the process of making up for past misbehavior that one over-compensates. But it is equally inevitable that in overcompensating in favor of one group, you wind up mistreating others. For instance, because […]

Biden’s Afghanistan Disaster Shows He’s More Bystander Than World Leader, In Over His Head

August 24, 2021 by


By James Carafano ~ President Joe Biden stepped out of the Oval Office on Friday and delivered yet another defense of his Afghanistan withdrawal.

August 23, 2021 by


By Clay Waters ~ As the situation in Afghanistan becomes only more grim, the New York Times is properly condemning the Biden Administration’s lack of foresight and criticizing Biden’s false statements regarding the US evacuation.

Amy Coney Barrett Is No Diana Ross

August 22, 2021 by


By Burt Prelutsky ~ It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Barrett, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are CINOs (Conservatives in Name Only). It’s true that as Supremes go, Diana Ross clearly outshines Justice Barrett. But it’s probably unfair and may even smack of sexism if I failed to mention that Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh also pale when […]
