Well, you know, we might not end up where you want….. Bernie Sanders is talking up a new revolution. A new proletarian revolution. Let’s review how these have fared over the years. Russia: Ended up in a totalitarian state. Millions were murdered. Cuba: Ended up in a totalitarian state…. Read more »
On New Year’s Eve 2015, around one thousand immigrants sexually assaulted hundreds of female revellers in the German city of Cologne.

One of the more irritating tactics you’ll see from the Radical Left is suggesting that their positions, no matter how extreme, are actually conservative ideas and that we’re only opposing them out of some personal bias, usually against President Obama. The two easiest examples that come to mind are how, based on some old white… Read more »

Whenever the controversial issue of immigration is debated, bleeding-heart liberals and West-hating leftists will trot out the following reasons to justify it. They’re passed off as though they’re self-evident facts only racist Nazis would dare to deny. However, if one gets past the faux moral outrage accompanied with predictable ad hominem slurs and looks a… Read more »
Despite having taken in more than its fair share of immigrants since the 1960s, Europe is now being forced to take in swarms of illegal immigrants fleeing from third-world hell-holes in Africa and the Middle East.

We await a heavy-handed anti-capitalist measure of therapy about to be unleashed on the world from the supreme seat of power, the Oval Office, as two world leaders link their voices, trumpeting the global redistribution of wealth. The Argentinian Pope, Pope Francis, with as much pomp and pageantry as this Administration can muster, will be revered and burnished by our uninformed and un-inquisitive media.
