As Americans continue to argue about anthem protests, let’s not forget who started this week’s controversy. It wasn’t Kaepernick or anyone associated with the NFL. It wasn’t the left or the right. It wasn’t the media. One man is responsible for all the ire of the last week… Donald J Trump. Trump, and TRUMP ALONE, […]
We are not pouting because your candidate won. We are not butthurt because our* candidate lost. We are not entitled sore losers in need of participation trophies. We haven’t been hired by George Soros or his minions. Many protests have been organized by everyday women of every age and from every walk of life from […]

The poll indicates that 57% of Republicans support establishing Christianity as the national religion in the US. While the sample was small (316 Republican primary voters) it reflects the opinions expressed by the vast […]
I’ve debated for quite some time about whether or not to tell this story publicly as it is a very personal one. With the mid-term elections less than 24-hours away, the decision is now clear.
