The 0.7 Percent “Solution”

1 min 17 sec ago
Americas abysmal 0.7% economic growth during the fourth quarter of 2015 meant the annual growth rate was an anemic 2.4% and average annual growth for the six-year Obama era a pathetic 2.2 percent. 2016-02-06T00:01:00-05:00 2016-02-06T06:57:51Z Paul Driessen

How many calories do you consume each day? If you answered something like 2,000 or 3,000, youre kidding yourself. You consume about 60 to 90 times that many. 2016-02-06T00:01:00-05:00 2016-02-06T06:57:51Z Calvin Beisner

Bernie Sanders Champions YUGE Profits for U.S. Corporations (But Only in Cahoots with Communists)

1 min 17 sec ago
Last night a Bernie Sanders declared North Korea our biggest foreign threat. Clearly North Korea is a very strange situation because it is such an isolated country run by a handful of dictators, or maybe just one, who seems to be somewhat paranoid. And, who had nuclear weapons. 2016-02-05T13:37:00-05:00 2016-02-06T06:57:51Z Humberto Fontova

CNN's Hypocrisy Exposed

1 min 17 sec ago
It is unfortunate that the Ted Cruz campaign and Rep. Steve King sent out misleading and even erroneous information about Dr. Ben Carsons campaign plans, for which Cruz and King have apologized. But CNN is also to blame, and its self-righteous, overly-indignant condemnation of the Cruz campaign exposes its own hypocrisy. 2016-02-05T09:55:00-05:00 2016-02-06T06:57:51Z Michael Brown

The More Republican Senators Hate Cruz the More America-Loving Voters Should Back Him

1 min 17 sec ago
Theres a reason why nearly zero Republican Senators are rushing to the microphones to endorse Ted Cruz. Compared to his bold attempts to topple the presidents middle-class-crushing, business-squashing, government-dependency-boosting, liberty-erasing imperialism, they look like the Lollipop Guild all obediently singing to Obamas tune. So they hate Ted Cruz. 2016-02-05T00:01:00-05:00 2016-02-06T06:57:51Z Joy Overbeck

Seeking a Spark in New Hampshire

Votes are stubborn little things. Votes have none of the sparkle and shine of campaign rhetoric. Votes don't soar; they sink in. Votes are precious to, and deeply felt by, the men and women who cast them, but the candidates stop catering to votes as soon as they're cast. 2016-02-05T00:01:00-05:00 2016-02-06T06:57:51Z Suzanne Fields
