    I know how bad the platform is and I feel like it was only made to sew discord and cause problems, just like the rest of social media... The thing is, either we give up that ground or we fight them where they are... I just put this post out there and I would encourage people to copy and paste it all over any social media you are a part of, Twitter wont work, its too long, but rewrite your own that works there. I don't want any credit make this your own conversation, just start it. We are continually...

    This is news that will not enchant the liberal news media, which will start to wonder why their abusive treatment of the President is not working On Friday, President Trump addressed the largest crowd of conservative activists in the history of CPAC. It was another memorable Trump speech, listing his many accomplishments and encouraging the crowd to support Republican candidates in the mid-term elections. For 80 minutes, the President discussed an array of issues such as tax cuts, judicial appointments, immigration and the strong economy.

    It’s only a matter of time, it seems, before it happens again. Only this time, it may be the spark that sets the nation on fire It becomes more and more obvious by the day that we are rapidly heading towards a second American civil war. As the leftists become a smaller and smaller minority, their frustration and desperation are driving them to more and more extreme positions, and more and more frequently, to violence of word and deed. The middle ground has disappeared under this rising tide of angry, threatening rhetoric. Debate is no longer an option. The left...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) You keep saying that word. I don’t think it means what you think it does. – Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he has given “amazing leadership” to the County during his time as Sheriff. In other news, the folks at Taco Bell bragged that they have given “amazing fine dining” to the American public, Harvey Weinstein bragged that he has given “amazing respect” to every woman he has ever met, and Hillary Clinton said that she exhibited “amazing stewardship” over her illegal email server while she...
  • FL Gov. Rick Scott Calls for FBI Director to Resign- While Ignoring Broward Sheriff's Fatal Mistakes

    Last week the nation watched in horror as the body count of Broward school children and staff doubled by the minute. The very next day the FBI admitted they had failed to act on a vital lead that explicitly detailed the mass murderer's intentions to kill people at his school. Immediately, Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. While the FBI apologized and issued a standard vague statement, Gov. Scott said Wray must resign, saying acknowledging a mistake “isn’t going to cut it..” "An apology will never...

    President Trump's decision to reduce US aid to Palestine has so angered Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that he has vowed "to send wave after wave of terrorists to bomb, shoot, stab, or run over Americans wherever we can find them—even in the United States. You think things have been bad with the occasional attack on the Jews occupying our land, well they are about to get a whole lot worse. President Obama gave us money with the understanding that we would confine our attacks to the Jews. Trump breaks this deal at his own risk." House Minority Leader Nancy...
  • Where is Fulton Sheen's Sainthood?

    God's will be done The Catholic religion inducts and celebrates its saints, and I would like to know what the holdup is regarding the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979). Why is he not yet a saint? For those who do not know, Fulton Sheen hosted an extremely popular television show in the 1950s. A number of its episodes can be watched on the internet, so those who were born long after Fulton Sheen’s passing can catch a glimpse of what the man was like.

    By hook or by crook, the Deep State seeks to steal the nation from its patriots, and that’s the Sorry State of the Deep State No two stories relating to President Donald Trump and FORMER President Barack Obama, coming almost back to back this weekend, ever conveyed in perfect terms, the sorry state of the Deep State. Indeed, both stories coming as they did should go down as Sorry State of the Deep State 101. In a brazenly bizarre but most telling demand, the 2018 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference forced allegiance to sworn secrecy on all attendees of an...

    On Friday, the US Department of State announced plans to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem in May of this year. Israelis rejoiced over the announcement. This past December, US President Donald Trump made his historic announcement, in which he formally declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his intentions to move the US embassy there. “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done,” Trump said during his speech. Since Trump’s historic announcement, there was uncertainty as to when the...
  • Israeli Archaeologist Announces Discovery of What May Have Been the Seal of the Prophet Isaiah

    Israeli Archaeologist Eilat Mazar announced this past Wednesday that she believed a seal impression of the Biblical prophet Isaiah was recently found near the southern wall of the Holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Mazar and a team of archaeologists from the Biblical Archaeology Society (BAR) had been conducting excavations at the Ophel site at the site of the Holy Temple (adjacent to the Western Wall). In her announcement, Mazar explained why there was a strong possibility that the seal she and her team discovered was actually the seal of the Biblical Prophet Isaiah. The following was part of the article...

  • Deep Thought for a Sunday Morning - Abortion vs Slavery

    02/25/2018 7:49:33 AM PST · by SamAdams76 · 12 replies
    I don't normally get involved in abortion discussions. I'm against it but I mostly keep that thought to myself as both sides of the issue are so emotionally invested in their point of view. I don't reckon I'm going to change anybody's mind one way or the other so I just avoid the subject as much as possible. But put me down as against it. I'm a man so it's easier for me to take this position. But I can tell you that I provided for all my children and actively participated in properly raising them to adulthood and independence....

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Not only are there vast organizations dedicated to the idea of open border immigration, there are grassroots movements, individual campaigners, and also elements within governments that want this deeply flawed “plan” to become the new Global Vision. But they are all missing some very important points that seem not to be challenged by opponents. The fact is that the idea of a world where we can live where we want, travel freely, and escape poverty is very attractive. It even seems the moral choice in many ways…But there are dangers and issues that do not get pointed out. Those who...

    Hungary built a wall…and the EU is going to pay for it! That is if Victor Orbán has anything to say about it. Orbán is Europe’s Donald Trump, hated by Europe’s borderless Leftists just like Trump is by open border apostles here. Orbán built a wall on Hungary’s border to keep the barbarians at the gate while all around him screamed that illegal migration is a human right. And now he wants the EU – who necessitated the wall with their insane policies - to pay for it, which of course they won’t; but at least Hungry is no longer...

Cox said that she and Ryan Bundy have decided to withdraw...
