The term “Catholic” is in countless opinion column titles as we look to this year’s election. A short discourse about what a “Catholic” is may be helpful. It’s actually quite simple, but to understand it requires one to know a bit of history. Two thousand years ago a Jewish rabbi named Jesus was crucified outside the […]

Ballot boxThe FBI and DOJ are still infested with enemies of the Republic and the Constitution they falsely swore to defend. Little more than a month before a momentous general election, with early voting already underway in many states, the FBI and DOJ are busy looking away and throwing up smoke about foreign interference and voter suppression, a DNC talking point to cover real fraud. The FBI and DOJ know the true enemy of free and fair elections has always been within, not external. They have assiduously avoided the basics of busting upvoting fraud. We know this for a fact because Project Veritas had no problem getting a Democrat operation, complete with a carload of paid for ballots, a party operative, and voters saying on video they were paid to hand over their ballot.

Project Veritas documented federal election fraud in Ilhan Omar’s district. We can help across the nation, putting pressure on the Feds now. If you or a friend are in or around senior communities, low-income communities, or college communities, keep an eye out and alert others to do the same with their smartphones.

I’m going to ignore policies in this post. By now, I think we know where each candidate stands on particular issues. I want to focus on their character. The media constantly tells me how Trump is an awful, malignant human being, and that alone should disqualify him for office. I’m then told that Biden is […]

President Trump in sprint mode is not much different than normal mode. He held another daily press briefing this Sunday, taking 37 minutes, as I clock it. It looks like he took questions from about 7 reporters, mostly hostile, as usual. Contrast this with Senator Biden’s scripted appearances, always assisted by the media wing of […]

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer President Trump’s selection of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court. They also dig into the New York Times story on Trump’s taxes and discuss what might be damaging and what’s just noise. And they discuss the spectrum of attacks Democrats and their media allies are aiming at Judge Barrett – from Obamacare scares to bashing her for being a working mom to why adopting kids from Haiti is somehow troubling.

The Church of God in Christ, a Pentecostal denomination whose membership is predominantly Black, released a statement (PDF) in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Here is a key passage:

We must defend the rights of our fellow Christians, of people of other faiths and of
those who hold no faith. Today we stand with, and speak in defense of, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. As black Christians we will not stand by in silence as our sister in the faith is persecuted for the “political crime” of her beliefs.

With indiscipline and grotesque tweets (FL ‘white power’ retweet – indefensible and profoundly stupid) Trump had lost my 2020 vote. I had fully prepared to abstain from casting a vote for the 2020 president. For my entire voting life the game has boiled down to choosing between the shiniest of two turds – an act […]

Amy Coney Barrett and TrumpJudge Amy Coney Barrett is her own woman, not the next Scalia/Alito/Thomas. She has thought her way through court business since law school, laying out her concerns and reasoning in plain print. While court opinions and law review articles can be a bit daunting, she writes clearly enough for the lay reader to understand.

Instead of accepting the pre-spun sound bytes and clipped quotes, we should look to the available complete video and writings of Amy Coney Barrett. I salute Heavy for having provided quotes with links to sources back in 2018, when ACB was under consideration to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy. A quick search on YouTube and Barrett’s Notre Dame Law School faculty page yielded a helpful set of videos and writings, outside of court opinions, with Courageous ACB in her own words.*

The US Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs has very belatedly released its report on Hunter Biden and, by implication, Joe Biden. This matters because it shows how Joe Biden and his people operate when it comes to family business. The report is available directly at “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.”

This family is deeply compromised, for real, by its greed, entangled with Putin’s and Xi’s agents. Then again, that has been a “dog bites man” story for the Democrats since at least Teddy Kennedy. To whet your appetite, here is the table of contents:

They think they are snubbing her, however, they are really doing her a big favor. Judge Barrett will be spared the inane comments and ugly questions of Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Mazie Hirono of Hawaii. Hirono is just stupid and Blumenthal is just mean. She doesn’t need to waste her valuable time meeting with them before the assault of the hearings. Gives Barrett more time to prepare.

Given the very real possibility of a Democrat victory in November, I think it’s important that we ask the unspoken question on everyone’s mind:

Does Joe Biden really have the mental capacity to serve as Vice President in the Harris administration?

RBG was a worthy adversary of the constitution and I will miss her presence. Not because I agreed with her on anything but because she was a person, with a lot of personality and in many ways a great Lincolnian American. As the Lincolnian age comes to an end, as the involuntary union is slowly […]

There is a moment in this campaign season I have been waiting to see for months now. I don’t think the President will give it to us, and for the Bidens’ sakes I probably shouldn’t hope it will happen.

I think we all expect there may come a time in the debates when Joe Biden is talking, and gets a little lost. Maybe a lot lost. One of those times when he just can’t find that word he really needs, or can’t recall what he was talking about. I won’t wish it on him, but it’s no secret he’s prone to such things. If that thing happens, President Trump can score a major victory by leaning in, and suggesting the needed word. Or by somehow helping him get back on track.
