May 13, 2021 by

By Craig Rucker ~ Why rob banks? “That’s where the money is.” Why attack energy? That’s what drives the economy. I had to visit three gas stations today to find enough fuel to run an errand for my child and then make a meeting. The East Coast is experiencing the kind of gas shortages today […]

May 5, 2021 by

3

By Hans von Spakovsky ~ The news that six states will gain seats in the House of Representatives and another seven will lose seats, thanks to new census numbers, was widely reported.

Justice Was Mis-Served

May 2, 2021 by

2

By Burt Prelutsky ~ The Derek Chauvin verdict will obviously be appealed. I believe that Derek Chauvin was guilty of manslaughter, but not murder. The man is obviously a bully, but if he had wanted to kill George Floyd, it wouldn’t have taken him nearly nine minutes to do it. I suspect he kept his […]

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ You’ve heard it countless times: “It’s not rocket science”! But rocket science has nothing on geo-science.

By Gabriel Hays ~ Sure, you may feel annoyed about all the woke, self-righteous stuff Hollywood actors have directed at conservatives during the Academy Awards, but the silver lining is that they’re only hurting themselves. According to Nielsen ratings – as reported by The Hollywood Reporter – April 25’s 93rd Annual Academy Awards was the […]

April 25, 2021 by

2

By Burt Prelutsky ~ It seems pretty obvious to me that Ms. Babbitt’s death can be traced to WWW (walking while white). When I theorized a few days ago that the person who shot and killed an unarmed woman during the kerfuffle on Capitol Hill on January 6th was a black police officer, I wasn’t […]

US Far Left, Chinese Communist Party Are Ideological Kissing Cousins

April 3, 2021 by

3

By Mike Gonzalez ~ Don’t be surprised when China’s leaders talk down to top Biden administration officials, whether at a meeting last month in Alaska or elsewhere, going out of their way to cast the United States as a racist den of inequity. That is, after all, how our elites and educators describe the country […]

Defining A Crisis

March 29, 2021 by

2

By Burt Prelutsky ~ Both sides see a political advantage in their positions regarding the Mexican border. Democrats and Republicans have been fighting over what to label the situation at the Mexican border. The Republicans are calling it a crisis, while the Democrats are dismissing it as a challenge.

By Dr. Kelvin Kemm ~ A decade has passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake, and the name Fukushima is etched into history. But few people know the truth of what happened. The phrase, “the lessons learned from Fukushima,” is well-known. But how do people implement them, if they don’t know what happened, or what […]

BIG OOPS: Blue-Checks Assume CO Shooter Was ‘White Domestic Terrorist’ Before Facts Show…He Wasn’t

March 24, 2021 by

3

By Gabriel Hays ~ The media is just chomping at the bit all the time to blame pro-gun conservatives – who they love referring to as “white supremacists” – for the mass shootings in America. They get so overexcited about the notion, they tweet before they get the facts. Case in point: immediately after a […]

Biden Vies For An Emmy

March 21, 2021 by

1

By Burt Prelutsky ~ Someone should have caught Biden’s “We’ve never had a problem like this in a long time” before it went out live. The best thing about Biden’s half-hour address is that it was short. The worst thing was Biden’s performance. I’m sure that after seeing how easy it was for Andrew Cuomo […]

By John Venable ~ Last week, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith lamented the supposedly exorbitant costs and “poor track record” of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Smith’s lack of expertise in airpower might qualify him for a pass, of sorts, for those ill-informed comments. But, Gen. “CQ” Brown’s recent public statements on the subject are real […]

March 16, 2021 by

By Gabriel Hays ~ Progressivism is a form of cruelty that encourages women to kill their own children and not disclose it to their husbands, for the sake of mommy’s mental health of course.
