Trump — winning, despite attackers shifting into high gear

Donald Trump is raking in the wins, and carrying about a 5-point lead over President Biden among the nation's registered voters, a New York Times/Siena College poll just found.

Christian nationalists to the rescue! America needs more

Democrats are up-in-arms because a pastor from California, Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, dared pray in Congress -- as an invited guest chaplain of Speaker Mike Johnson -- in a manner that advanced the truths of the Bible. How dare he. Right? Published March 1, 2024

President Biden sailed to victory in the Michigan primary, winning more than 80 percent of the vote. But 13 percent of what should have been his support chose instead to vote "uncommitted." Why?

State Department is woke, woker, wokest

Yay, Team Biden. It really doesn't get any weaker when the very agency tasked with protecting America's security interests is more concerned with coddling the feelings of rainbow-dyed-haired losers who dress in furry cat costumes and live in mommy's basement. Published February 28, 2024

All eyes are on Rafah, the border area of Gaza and Egypt, where a million Palestinians have huddled to escape the war between Israeli's military and Hamas terrorists, but Egypt's not letting most cross and America's putting the onus for their safety on Benjamin Netanyahu. And tensions are rising, rising, rising. Published February 27, 2024

Harvard leads in Ivy League’s pitiful race to the bottom

The once-fine Harvard University has become a school of disrepute. So, too, most all of the Ivy Leagues. Who wants to send their kids to an Ivy League anymore? The schools are plagued by antisemites, dotted with plagiarists and dominated by leftist loons. Published February 27, 2024

Bold & Blunt video: Team Biden ticks off Israel — again

Antony Blinken said during a recent visit to Israel that Hamas terrorists dehumanized the Jewish people during the October 7 terror attack -- but then suggested Israelis were also dehumanizing Palestinians.
