After a couple of weeks of hard negotiating, President Joe Biden and Speaker Kevin McCarthy came to an agreement over the Memorial Day weekend on raising the debt limit.  Serious members of the Freedom Caucus and many of the best conservatives in Congress are upset by this deal.  Last week, I joined with dozens of conservative leaders and organizations urging support for Speaker McCarthy’s original bill – the Limit, Save, Grow Act.  Today, I agree with those who feel this deal misses the mark for a variety of reasons.

Monday marks Memorial Day, a national observance first known as Decoration Day.  The first Memorial Day was observed on May 30, 1868, on the orders of General John Logan, commander of the Grand Army of the Republic.  Flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Initially meant as a time to remember those who fell during the bloody battles of our brutal Civil War, the holiday's significance has been extended to honor all those who paid the ultimate price for our nation.

What in the world has happened to corporate America? Virtually every major American corporation has bought into the “climate emergency” narrative.  It’s insanity!  Don’t they realize that the people pushing this narrative want to impose socialism on the country and this is their primary vehicle?  By the way, South Africa is leading the world in greenhouse gas reductions right now.  But it’s nothing to applaud.  Environmentalists may be happy, but people are suffering. Corporate America is also all in on “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” (DEI).  Those are nice sounding words, but they… Read More

For the second time in recent days, Reverend Franklin Graham has issued a stark warning to Christians.  Last week, Graham warned graduates at Liberty University that America is stuck “in a downward spiral” and that we now live in a “culture of confusion and lies.” This week, Graham warned the National Religious Broadcasters that a storm is coming, that dark times are coming to America.  “The world has deteriorated so quickly,” Graham said.  “We cannot be deceived, and we can’t be fooled.” Graham added that “cancel culture,” which is pushed by the intolerant left, “wants to destroy… Read More

It’s clear from the Durham report and from several unfortunate recent events that the once iconic FBI has been hijacked by left-wing ideologues and weaponized against conservative Americans.  If the Bureau isn’t attempting to run interference for Democrat presidential candidates, it’s smearing Donald Trump, spying on concerned parents and conservative Catholics or persecuting pro-life activists!  Sadly, it isn’t the only government agency that has been weaponized by the left. 

President Biden was asked about the state of U.S.-China relations at a press conference yesterday at the G-7 Summit in Japan.  Biden said that he and the leader of communist China, President Xi Jinping, had agreed to meet in person to discuss relations. But, “Then this silly balloon that was carrying two freight cars worth of spying equipment was flying over the United States, and it got shot down, and everything changed,” Biden explained.  Did you notice his choice of words?  Biden said a “silly spy balloon got shot down.”  The balloon wasn’t “silly.”  It was a hostile act.  It was… Read More

President Joe Biden is in Japan for the G-7 Summit.  He almost tripped while walking down a flight of stairs at the Itsukushima Shrine, one of Japan’s most popular tourist attractions.  Fortunately, he steadied himself and avoided an awkward collapse.  Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for America’s foreign policy. 

The House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government heard critically important testimony from multiple FBI whistleblowers today.  These men are heroes and patriots.  They are decorated veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  They served in local law enforcement.  They prosecuted child sex crimes, and protected us from terrorists.  They received numerous awards from the FBI, even the “Employee of the Year” award. But for having the courage to report clear abuses and the politicization of the agency to their superiors, they were all severely punished. 

It’s been 48 hours since the Durham report was released.  So, this is a good time to consider how it has been received, especially by the media. It must be noted that John Durham is one of the most respected figures in federal law enforcement because of his meticulous work as a state and federal prosecutor over many decades.  He prosecuted against the mafia.  He investigated abuses at the CIA.  He prosecuted a corrupt Republican governor of Connecticut.  He led efforts to exonerate several individuals who were falsely convicted on murder charges due to corruption at the FBI.  Even… Read More

After four years of investigation, Special Counsel John Durham released a damning report yesterday detailing the corruption and rot within the FBI.  The report is a chilling indictment against the primary law enforcement agency that is supposed to be safeguarding our country, and it has profound implications for the future of America. Durham’s investigation found that there was zero evidence to justify the FBI’s spying on the Trump campaign for alleged collusion with Russia.  In other words, the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the Trump campaign and its continued… Read More

There are a lot of problems facing America today.  But according to President Joe Biden, the most dangerous terrorist threat facing the United States is white supremacy.  No, it isn’t! That was Biden’s message of “hope” to this year’s graduating class at Howard University, a historically black university in Washington, D.C.  And Biden wasn’t the only one making this absurd claim.  Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas repeated it on MSNBC yesterday. I don’t know what’s worse – that Joe Biden and Mayorkas actually believe it or that they know they are lying.

Throughout the 2016 campaign and his presidency, one of the most frequent attacks on Donald Trump was that his tweets were rash, he was rash and he would get us into a war.  Well, that didn’t happen.  To the contrary, Trump negotiated historic peace accords in the Middle East.  At the same time, he wasn’t afraid to defend our interests when necessary, for example, taking out Iran’s terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani.  So, I find it strange that Trump is now being attacked because he wants to end a war, specifically the war in Ukraine. 

Border communities and many other communities across the country are bracing for the worst as Title 42 authority ends tonight at midnight. Title 42 is an emergency CDC order that allows immigration officials to quickly deport illegal aliens.  It was put into effect in order to safeguard public health during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Americans overwhelmingly support Title 42, and they are frustrated by the fact that this “emergency” authority isn’t standard operating procedure.  It should be, but powerful interests, including the globalist left, want open borders. If public health… Read More

House Republicans on the Government Oversight Committee, led by Chairman James Comer of Kentucky, held an important press conference this morning.  They were there to provide an update on the status of their investigation into Joe Biden’s corrupt influence peddling schemes.  Here’s what we know so far:

President Biden and congressional leaders are meeting at the White House today, supposedly to discuss plans to avoid a national default.  House Republicans have acted to avoid a default crisis, but Biden and congressional Democrats are digging their heels in.  They are demanding that Republicans vote to raise the debt ceiling without any future spending limits, giving Democrats a blank check to spend even more. The bill House Republicans passed last month freezes spending at 2022 levels, which were already inflated due to the emergency pandemic spending.  It also limits future increases… Read More

Title 42, a Trump-era immigration policy, expires this week.  When that happens, experts fear our southern border will be virtually non-existent.  Various reports indicate that somewhere between 700,000 and one million migrants are massed on our border waiting to rush across as soon as Title 42 expires this Thursday. Many migrants aren’t waiting.  They are already coming across in greater and greater numbers – as many as 9,000 a day. 

Half the country does not believe the 2020 election was legitimate.  I know the GOP has been intimidated into not saying that, but the rest of us don’t have to be intimidated.  But put aside what happened in the big cities in the middle of the night when Donald Trump’s lead evaporated.  The Hunter Biden laptop story by itself shows the extent to which the fix was in to rig the election.  More than 50 high-ranking members of the Deep State were all in on defeating Trump.  Their infamous letter was orchestrated by the Biden campaign. 

Joe Biden’s decades of influence peddling make him the epitome of the Swamp’s pay-to-play political corruption that the American people utterly despise.  “Middle Class Joe” is now a multi-millionaire with an estimated net worth of $15 million.  But all that hard work cashing in on his political connections may be about to crash his career. While the focus recently has been on Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings (which, of course, implicate his father), Senator Charles Grassley and Representative James Comer are demanding that the FBI release records from 2020 that implicate “then-Vice… Read More

The situation at the southern border is a complete and total disaster.  Joe Biden’s open border policies have resulted in utter chaos -- record illegal immigration, record migrant deaths, a sickening surge in illegal child labor, crime and record drug overdose deaths in America. And in a matter of days, all of this is likely to get much worse as the Title 42 pandemic emergency authority officially ends. When that happens, Biden Administration officials expect an overwhelming flood of illegal aliens to storm the border – perhaps as many as 10,000 a day.  Some cities along the southern… Read More

Late yesterday afternoon, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen sounded the alarm on the state of the U.S. economy.  After assessing federal tax receipts, Yellen warned that the United States could hit the debt limit and risk default as early as June 1, months earlier than previous projections.  Tax receipts are running “substantially lower than expected,” indicating that the Biden economy is faltering.  Faced with that disturbing news, the Biden White House blinked.  President Biden invited the congressional leadership – House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, House Democrat Leader Hakeem Jeffries,… Read More

Joe Biden has blood on his hands.  Five people were shot and killed in Texas this weekend.  The media immediately blamed the carnage on the gun – an AR-15. What most media reports are not telling you is that the murderer is an illegal alien who has been deported FIVE TIMES before.  But thanks to Biden’s open borders policies, five residents of Cleveland, Texas, are now dead.

There’s something bizarre going on in the fevered minds of progressives and leftists these days.  I know that doesn’t surprise you.  But consider this:  Today’s left is demonizing parents who want to protect their children from inappropriate material, while simultaneously trying to prevent young adults from learning the things they should know. In his announcement video this week, Joe Biden said that parents protecting their children from explicit, graphic sexual material in public schools are “banning books.”  That kind of rhetoric recalls images of Nazis burning books by Jewish… Read More

Sudan is in the middle of a brutal civil war.  One militant faction just seized Sudan’s National Public Health Laboratory.  A World Health Organization representative in the country said this development (the seizure of the lab) was “extremely dangerous.” There are some very bad disease “isolates” in the lab, including cholera, representing a potential public health danger.  But it gets worse. An investigative report by Natalie Winters for the War Room discovered that over the years, the Sudanese lab has received financial assistance from the CDC, the Department of Defense, and Dr.… Read More

House Republicans are scheduled to vote today on legislation raising the debt limit.  But contrary to the demands from the Biden White House, Speaker Kevin McCarthy is attempting to force a little fiscal discipline into the debate. The national debt is a metastasizing cancer.  We cannot ignore it any longer as higher interest rates are causing debt payments to balloon.  Last year, a record $475 billion was paid just to cover the interest payments on the national debt.

Joe Biden announced his reelection campaign by releasing a video on social media this morning around 6:00 AM.  That tells you what his strategy is going to be.  He’s going to campaign out of the White House basement while the left’s hit squad invents a new controversy every day about whoever the GOP nominates.  This slash and burn strategy has worked for the left in the past.  It worked in Georgia.  It worked in Pennsylvania when the Democrat candidate couldn’t articulate a complete sentence.  It worked in Arizona against a Republican nominee who was intelligent and media savvy. 

Joe Biden is reportedly ready to announce his campaign for reelection.  Biden will release a video tomorrow, exactly four years to the day that he announced his 2020 campaign. The release of a video announcement is telling.  It’s an indication that Democrats hope to rerun their 2020 “basement strategy,” this time with a sitting president.  They want to limit and control Biden’s exposure to the press and the public. 

Almost every morning when I wake up, I am reminded of the six Christians who were gunned down at a Christian school in Nashville.  That story certainly disappeared quickly, didn’t it? Fortunately, the shooter was taken down by brave police officers.  Once again, good guys with guns stopped the bad “guy” with a gun.  But we really don’t know much about her, except that she was a woman “transitioning” to be a fake man and taking male hormones.

The Biden White House raised plenty of eyebrows yesterday when it announced that it had invited the “Tennessee Three” – state Representatives Justin Jones, Justin Pearson and Gloria Johnson – to the White House next week to celebrate their efforts to stop the business of the state legislature in the wake of a mass shooting at a Nashville Christian school.

It was a very busy day in Washington yesterday with several important hearings taking place on Capitol Hill.  Let’s start with communist China’s culpability for the COVID-19 pandemic. The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic heard testimony from former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe.  Now let’s just pause there for a moment. 

For several days last week and into the weekend, the streets of Chicago were taken over by young thugs.  More than 30 people were shot and eight were killed.  But the left-wing media doesn’t want to talk about that atrocity. No, the controversy wasn’t that the streets of Chicago were hijacked, that people were beaten, that stores were looted.  The controversy was how we are allowed to talk about it. Multiple politicians lectured us about what we could say.  Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson, declared, “It is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities… Read More
