  • It’s clear Salvador Ramos was mentally sick, so why wasn’t he stopped?

    The suspect in the Uvalde shooting displayed signs of serious mental illness, but we are incapacitated by political correctness and leftist immorality. As details emerge about the massacre at Robb Elementary School, we are learning that the suspected shooter, Salvador Ramos, showed obvious signs of severe mental illness and instability. In a photo circulating across social media, Ramos stands in front of a mirror posing for a selfie. His demeanor is feminine and hypersexual – pouty lips and a shirt provocatively exposing his bare chest. Although this sort of behavior should be an obvious red flag, in a world of...
  • The horror of being unfriended by an anti-gun liberal

    Last night I attempted the impossible. I set about trying to carry on a rational discussion regarding the horrific events in Uvalde, Texas. I now have one less Facebook friend -- oh, the ignominy of being unfriended by a raving liberal -- and a newfound respect for Dale Carnegie, who, unlike myself, was able to win friends and influence people. Realizing that the progressive left would use this tragic episode as one more opportunity to rant about gun control, I decided to pre-empt them. I offered a Facebook post picturing a gun and ammunition and stating emphatically that the only...

    An open letter to Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. My Dearest Randi, What is going on! It has been a year since my last missive, and I have not heard a peep from you. This is not the first time you have snubbed me, however. When I tried to say hi to you outside the Supreme Court after the Janus oral arguments in 2018, you refused to even look at me, and then turned to a newsman and launched into a kooky rant, insisting that unions “actually make communities safer and…the right-wing is threatened by that.”...

    Is today’s America what World War II fighters, Korean War fighters, Vietnam War fighters, and other American warriors sacrificed and died for? Uncle Sam sent me to South Korea in 1953 during its war of survival against communist North Korea. Rumbles of yet another war while I was there – that would in time explode into war in Vietnam – made some of my comrades believe that at rotation time, they would be headed to that next fight against communism instead of returning to the states. One of my schoolteachers wrote in 1953: “What do you do there besides freezing...

    In a normal political year, being chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) would be a political plum, but in 2022 it is more like being the captain of the Titanic. And the “passengers” (Democrats in the House seeking re-election) are starting to grumble that the captain is commandeering his own lifeboat. That’s roughly the situation facing Sean Patrick Maloney, chairman of the DCCC, which allocates party funds to incumbents seeking re-election. Polling voters on their support for a generic Democrat running against a Republican yields horrific results for Dems. Punchbowl News: DCCC internal polling “finds that in battleground...

    What Americans see as an abject catastrophe, the Biden Administration cheers on as stunning and planned progress. If an administration deliberately wished to cause havoc on the border, to ensure fuel was nearly unaffordable, to create a crime wave, to spark 1970s hyperinflation, and to rekindle racial tensions, what would it have done differently than what Joe Biden has done? So is Biden malicious, incompetent, or a wannabe left-wing ideologue? When pressed about inflation and fuel price hikes, Biden either blames someone or something else, gets mad at the questioner, or claims Donald Trump did it. His administration apparently believes...

    Misery loves company. And unfortunately for America, the merchants of misery will be in charge for a long time. My daughter’s college graduation last weekend was the first convocation held at the university since 2019. Although everyone was grateful for a return to normalcy, the pandemic still clouded the ceremonies; professors recounted the ways in which the students’ lives had been upended, commending them for soldiering on despite the unprecedented disruption. Their praise only acted as a cruel reminder of the time, friendships, and experiences needlessly and irretrievably lost. Campus, of course, never really returned to anything close to normal....

    In the two years since George Floyd’s accidental fentanyl overdose death, multiple intelligence agencies and other national security apparatuses have focused on hiring more minorities, claiming that diversity is a top national security issue. According to the Associated Press, multiple employees of various intelligence agencies used the accidental death of George Floyd, which sparked violent race riots and acts of domestic terrorism all across the country, as an excuse to complain about alleged discrimination in the workplace. Staff calls were held at several agencies in the summer of 2020, including the National Security Agency (NSA), where General Paul Nakasone listened...

    During congressional testimony on Thursday, two witnesses called by Democratic members of Congress testified that biological men are capable of getting pregnant and having abortions, while refusing to give a concrete definition of the word “woman.” As reported by Fox News, Aimee Arrambide, executive director of the radical pro-abortion group Avow Texas, was asked about both subjects of Congressman Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) during a hearing titled “Revoking your Rights.” When asked to define what “a woman is,” Arrambide refused to answer the question, instead responding with “I believe that everyone can identify for themselves.” Bishop then moved on to the...

    Once again, Florida’s Ron DeSantis proves he has all the right enemies. If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, you just might be named Ron DeSantis. Let’s recap. On April 22, the Florida governor signed the “Stop WOKE Act,” which, in the words of USA Today, “prohibits any teaching that could make students feel they bear personal responsibility for historic wrongs because of their race, color, sex or national origin.” The law was necessary because, as you can see in any number of YouTube videos of school-board meetings around...

    The illogical leftist mind contradicts its own ideas without a care for their destructive nature. On the one hand, the greenies want everyone to eat a plant-based diet because meat and milk from animals are evil. On the other hand, they want to eliminate commercial fertilizers and return completely to "organic" agriculture. See any problems with these two disparate goals? Fertilizer shortages are making news these days, and not just here in the USA. Of course, the shortage is being blamed on our catch-all, ubiquitous "supply chain" issues and Putin, especially since many of these products are made of components...

    America these last 14 months resembles a dystopia. It is becoming partly the world of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, partly the poet Homer’s land of the Lotus-Eaters. Nothing seems to be working. And no one in control seems to care. The once secure border of 2020 vanished. Two-million people have crossed the southern border illegally in the last twelve months. Millions more are on the way. The Biden Administration unilaterally and simply destroyed existing immigration law. What followed was surreal. The administration claimed COVID was again on the horizon. So it justified forcing American citizens to keep wearing masks in...

    The First United Church of Oak Park is on a mission to end “racism, injustice, and violence,” and the strategy is exactly what you’d expect from ideologues of the America Left: more racism and hypocrisy. Under the leadership of Reverend John Edgerton, the congregation has been “fasting from ‘whiteness’” in observance of Lent. According to the official press release: Justice must be loved into existence. It is the only way. White people absolutely have a place in the redemption story. White people were even at the foot of the cross: they were the Roman guards. As white people we must...

    If this isn't viewpoint discrimination by a public school, then what is? Imagine if a school in a conservative rural American town displayed a "MAGA" flag while banning all Nike products because of Nike's political affiliation with the America-hating ideology of Black Lives Matter (BLM). Now imagine the exact opposite, and you'll find the reality of a school in Randolph, Vermont that displays the BLM flag boldly but canceled a high school baseball team fundraiser for using Chick-fil-A products. In an email to the community on April 11, school superintendent Layne Millington stated: Chick-Fil-A as a company has stirred significant...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis expanded on the possibility of ending Disney’s self-governing status in response to the company’s pushback on the state’s parental rights bill on "Fox & Friends" Friday. "Look, there’s policy disputes, and that’s fine," DeSantis explained, "but when you're trying to impose a woke ideology on our state, we view that as a significant threat." DeSantis’ comments come as Disney has publicly disapproved of a new Florida law which bans discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third-grade classrooms. After sending a company-wide email denouncing the legislation, Disney executives announced it would remove "ladies...

Marshall, Colin Powell and Harriet Tubman are among 87 candidates who have made the cut for the renaming of nine military installations that honor Confederate figures, including Fort Benning and Fort Gordon in Georgia. The federal Naming Commission announced this week it had narrowed its list of recommendations from the more than 34,000 it had received from the public. It stopped soliciting ideas online Dec. 1 and is preparing to submit its final recommendations to Congress by Oct. 1....

    CHICAGO – Those who call themselves members of the woke tribe in America often point to communities like Pastor Corey Brooks’ South Side neighborhood as signs of systemic racism. They talk of white supremacy, redlining and block-busting as the major contributors to the poverty and violence while conveniently ignoring the devastating impact of post-'60s liberalism. The woke find their audiences in universities, corporations, institutions and in school districts like District 65 in Evanston, a wealthy Chicago suburb 20 miles north of where the pastor lives and ministers. Teachers in that district have been teaching students about Black Lives Matter as...

    Ever since this show began in the early 70s as a summer replacement for The Brady Bunch, we were on top of one trend: Cancel culture. The idea being, if your past isn't adaptable to current standards, you would lose your friends, social status, Netflix password and career. You'd be shunned from polite society. Its kindred spirit was wokeism, political correctness on more steroids than Lance Armstrong, which allowed no forgiveness relating not just to your past actions, but to who you are. Generally, it's things that can't be changed, like your race or Pete Davidson's bedsheets. In the world...
