Trump’s Legacy and the Future of the GOP
The days of the Trump administration are winding down. His lawsuits contesting the outcome of the 2020 election have gone nowhere. Despite Trump’s impressive total of 74,223,744 votes, Joe Biden (with the help of the media) beat him. It’s time to take a look at what many call “Trumpism” and think of the future.
Response to Vegas Attacks Shows the Heart and Mind of the Left
In response to the senseless violence in Las Vegas, several on the Left have brazenly indicated what they truly think about middle America–folks that go to work, worship on Sundays, listen to country music, drive pick ups, and simply try to build an honest life with family.

Why Donald Trump Is Obama’s Logical Successor (And How an App Might Help)
Establishment Republicans have been beating their breasts over Trump’s election no less than Hillary’s supporters, bewildered that a man so beyond the pale could have been the Republican nominee, much less President-elect.

SCOTUS, the Presidential Debate, and The Formula
The Supreme Court will be a major issue in tonight’s presidential debate. Justice Scalia’s seat is just part of the story. At 83 years old, rumors have long been swirling about the health of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a solid vote for the liberals. Moreover, Anthony Kennedy, a Reagan appointee who often votes with the...
