    I consider myself (mostly) an Anarcho capitalist – which means I’m nearly never in favor of regulating or stifling business. However, herp-derp left-wing silicon barons are in the beginnings of exploiting and exerting inordinate control over American society and business. Not good. Not capitalism. The CEO of Twitter is seriously advocating, in public, on his own medium, for a second American Civil War. One where the GOP gets “wiped out.” The man with one of the most influential platforms in human history wants all of his political opposition dead and the left to have it all. With such a jaundiced...
  • Veto Porkulus Mr President (Saturbray-1)

    Romans 1:14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. America hired President Trump to stand between them and the District of Corruption. There is no greater power the President has than the power of the veto and there has never been a more deserving bill than Porkulous 2.0. This is a bill Nazi Pelosi would be proud to pass as it has every Democrat Christmas wish and they are asking Trump to be their Golden Santa Claus. There is no way the country can continue to dig the...

    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Psalm 23:1-3 KJV It is time to end the MuleTrain fishing trip. Everyone on the planet knows he has found no collusion, whatever that means; and no campaign crimes or he would have leaked it, so it is time to give America back to the people. This entire fiasco is a Hillary campaign dirty trick being orchestrated by the...

    The Democrat party is and has been the most evil and corrupt party in American history, using our government to bend and oppress the will of the people. From its support of slavery, to the Ku Klux Klan, to Tammany Hall, to its fight against civil rights, to its continued oppression of people of color through meager government handouts, to it’s bloody war dead, through its most recent collaboration with Russia and the corruption of our intelligence agencies to attempt to overthrow our government. Wait, Democrats the war party??? I thought Republicans were! No, just like everything else, the left...

    What do you lose if you don't support advocacy groups like the NRA? It's pretty simple. Lobbyists and activist groups work on Congress and on legislatures. They work tirelessly to influence opinion and to promote 2d amendment freedom. Would Congress be supportive of gun rights if these groups were banded together to make politicians pay at the voting booth for violations of 2d amendment freedom? Absolutely not. We know the swamp is bought and paid for by the highest bidder. We don't like to acknowledge that, but "Chamber of Commerce" is a curse word in most of red state America....

    Clinton paid Russians for known lies that top 0bama Administration officials used to lie to the FISA Court so that they could violate Americans' 4th Amendment Rights. Let's name names in this conspiracy. Who exactly, by name and title, knew that the dossier was fake, and that it was presented to the FISA Court as if it was real? Those people need to be indicted. Let's name them, and have them start quaking in their boots.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:12-13 KJV The Establishmedia is in a deep depression this morning after President Donald J Trump was accepted with open arms at Davos this week. Once he leaves the DNC controlled American bubble and mixes with real people around the world, just like Reagan, he...

    Then the LORD will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. Perhaps President Trump learned something about giving out Olive Branches to the DNC; they are going to shove them in your ear. Now the big outrage is he made some salty language about some Turd World countries who are invading our Country. This is another example of what the DNC is rather than some libs being offended for a man talking like a man....

    Therefore when thou givest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. Matthew 6:12 Imagine what the Three Pillars of Propaganda (Academia, Media and Democrats) would be saying if their messiah would have had a first year like President Trump’s? They would be running out of adjectives for his deity as we are witnessing one of the greatest first year presidencies in America’s histoir. To imagine he has single handedly taken this...

    Most folks here support President Trump and what he is trying to do for the nation, what impact he is having on the nation. We hear good news, and we instinctively know it's good news.  At the same time I think we fail to focus on the magnitude of change at times. This is one of those times.  This good news cannot be overlooked.  Lets look at some numbers.  They are very impressive. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) closed above 25,000 points today, at 25,075.13.  LINK  It's a first.  In the 120 years of the DJIA, this is the highest...

    Let me get this ball rolling... Rigged: The Democrat primary was fixed for Hillary and against Bernie Sick: Hillary ran the Clinton Global Initiative and the State Department from the same private server to combine US policy and CGI fundraising activities and avoid public scrutiny. Rigged: Al Franken beat Norm Colman by fewer votes than those illegally cast by known felons. Sick: Obama obtained a FISA warrant based on a wholly fraudulent dossier, gathered information on the Republican Presidential Candidate, and widely disseminated the information by unmasking the names of the Republicans surveilled. Rigged: John Conyers II will pass his...

    When Roy Moore wins the special election to replace Jeff Sessions it will culminate with the second stage of the re-emergence of the old Silent Majority (‘SM’), which can be defined simply as those people who play by the rules and get taken for granted by far too many people in elite circles. Whether those elites are in the media, the entertainment world, Washington DC political circles, whatever, the SM has decided to hit back with a vengeance this time around. President Trump was the first wave and now the second wave is about to hit, with Roy Moore overcoming...

    Not the first time that POS Brian Ross conveniently lied about or faked a story to further an agenda. It's also not the first time the jaundiced swamp-whores and crypto-Never-Trumpers at FOX ran breathlessly to their mics, barely able to contain their glee; Our president was heading for the unthinkable constitutional crisis they've been vying for and the stock market was crashing on the news. YAAAAAAAAYYYYY! This is worse than yelling "fire" in a crowded movie theater. No objective person can deny that they are attempting to overturn an American election and hobble the will of The People... often in...

    It read like something straight out of "The Onion". "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections." So spake Mitt Romney, would-be King of the Establishment Republicans. This one sentence shows a complete betrayal of all American mores and morals. In every walk of life -- law, elections, even reputations -- Americans have cherished the concept that one is innocent until proven guilty. This shows how dangerous Establishment Republicans are. They are every bit as dangerous as the most liberal Democrat.... and if given enough freedom to act, they would happily join Democrats in rounding up and killing...
