    It can't happen here? It is happening here! By Patricia McCarthy Sinclair Lewis's novel of 1935, It Can't Happen Here, was published amid the rise of fascism in Europe. The book is about the political career of fictional Buzz Windrip, who is elected president in 1936, defeating FDR with a campaign promising a return to traditional values and drastic social and economic reforms (he promises every American $5K). Once elected, he becomes a totalitarian tyrant, complete with his own paramilitary force called the Minute Men! Windrip is Lewis's version of an American Hitler and/or Mussolini. But consider the parallels with...

    Six in 10 voters would back someone other than President Biden if the 2024 presidential election were today, according to a Fox News national survey released Sunday. That makes his current reelection prospects dimmer than they ever were for his most recent predecessors, Donald Trump and Barack Obama.

Opening statements are set for Monday. Daniels is not expected to testify until Tuesday, at the earliest. Avenatti, 50,...

MacArthur and 4,000 other pastors took to the pulpit on Sunday and preached on biblical sexuality...YouTube removed MacArthur's sermon from its platform and rendered the message as "hate speech."

    If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5 (King James Version) If King Fauxi is so worried about transmission of the covid virus, why is he allowing our Olympic team to go to China? You have everyone from five months on up terrified of catching the Omnicrock which is a mild cold, yet America is sending athletes to the source of all of this chaos where it is reported to have an Ebola type virus epidemic.

    A Michigan school superintendent debunked the rumor after a video from a December school board meeting resurfaced in which a speaker airs concerns about students who “identify as cats.” It started with a comment at a school board meeting, which was later amplified by a Michigan state Republican leader, and culminated with a school superintendent explaining that, no, there were no litter boxes on school grounds for students to use if they identified as furries. “It is unconscionable that this afternoon I am sending this communication,” the superintendent of Midland Public Schools, Michael Sharrow, wrote on Thursday in an email...

    The recent New York City law to allow at least 800,000 noncitizens to vote in municipal elections is unconstitutional and likely to be overturned in court, said Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Heritage Foundation’s election law reform initiative and former member of the Federal Election Commission. “It’s actually pretty clear that it violates the New York State Constitution—it has a provision that specifically says that you have to be a citizen to vote in all elections in the state of New York, and that includes local elections,” Spakovsky told The Epoch Times on Jan. 19. “I also think it...
  • Republicans pass redrawn Ohio state legislative plan, sending maps to court for approval

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio Republicans have passed a revised version of a state legislative district plan, voting on Saturday to send the plan to the Ohio Supreme Court for review and possible approval. The maps, approved by a party-line vote for the May primary election, favor Republicans to win 57 of 99 House districts and 20 of 33 Senate districts. The proportion of seats, 58%, is similar to a plan the Ohio Supreme Court identified as unconstitutional in its order striking the previous set down earlier this month for disproportionately favoring Republicans. They also favor Democrats to win more seats...

    While most Americans have never heard of it, the Interior Department’s five-year plan for offshore energy development is essential to maintaining our basic standard of living and keeping the prices for thousands of everyday goods and services low. At a time of record inflation and sky-high energy costs, it is critical that the Biden Administration show its energy and environmental leadership by moving forward with this offshore energy plan. Since 1953, the U.S. Interior Secretary has been required by law to prepare a five-year plan to set a schedule for oil and gas leases in U.S. offshore waters. It is...

    I worked at one of the Big Four accounting firms until two years ago when I retired early. I could see what was coming when they began to push a new program called D&I – Diversity and Inclusiveness. For those of you who have not endured this, it is an intriguing blend of CRT laced heavily with an attempt to implement quotas in the workplace. Many companies have hired high priced talent to head up their D&I programs. Mandatory training is the initial thrust of these efforts. You are forced to sit down and talk about your racial and sexual...

    Last week Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, walked into the British Parliament and made the most consequential statement by a political leader since the fall of the Berlin Wall. This is what Johnson said in part, to the cheers of the assembled parliamentarians: “Next week mandatory [vaccine] certification will end… We will end the compulsory use of Covid status certification in England… From now, the government is no longer asking people to work from home and people should now speak to their employers about arrangements for returning to the office… [T]he government will no longer mandate...
