When you’re so outta touch with your voting base, this happens…

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump has listened to us average voters and is singing our tune. Whether he’s sincere, and possibly as frustrated as Washington, DC as the rest of us, remains to be seen. In the meantime, the RNC and GOP Establishment continue to stand around scratching their heads wondering how they’ve lost control. It’s really not ...

Dumbing down the next generation spells death to the Republic!

Psychology Today reported on this in 2014, but unfortunately, it bears repeating, as it doesn’t look like we’ve made any strides toward improvement in the last 18 months, and the current state of presidential politics only seems to further highlight the issue! People are literally coming out of the woodwork and flaunting their ignorance for all the world to see ...

Mitt Romney: The GOP’s Fall Guy…

What is Mitt Romney doing in the news cycle? And since when did he become a relevant topic to the 2016 presidential race? This election cycle just keeps getting weirder by the minute! When I started hearing the reports of Mitt’s opinion on Donald Trump a couple of days ago, I ignored it. Who cares what he thinks about Trump (or ...

You can trust us, we’re the government!

At this point, it’s nothing but distractions. Trump is immoral, Rubio sold his home to a lobbyist, and Cruz is not a citizen. They’ve got us chasing our tails like a cat chases a red laser dot on the wall! Our government keeps telling us they have our best interests at heart, can do what’s best for us, and can ...

Hey Christians: A little late to the party!

Hey! Yo! Christians… it’s a little late to start complaining about Donald Trump. I’m watching all the garbage on social media from conservative Christian Republicans asking Christians all over to get on their knees and pray Trump doesn’t win!  HELLO!?! First, does God work that way? Are you really supposed to pray for a human being not to achieve their ...

Lying, Cheating, and Stealing… an American way of Life?

I’ve been speaking with a lot of my not-so-political friends on the other side of the isle. These are people that are usually very sensible. We find ourselves very close on issues, though we may take a different approach to get to the same conclusion, but sensible none the less. Over the last few months several of them have expressed ...

GOP establishment piles on Trump! Surprised?

First let me say I’m NOT a Trump supporter. I don’t really want to have to vote for him, but if you leave me choices like the self-absorbed, all-important, liar and cheat, her highness, “I can be bought” Hillary or “Feel the Bern” like a bad rash, let me give you everything that belongs to everyone else, Socialist Sanders, well ...

Hail to the Chief?

Unfortunately, I couldn’t listen to the State of the Union speech live because my national radio show (self-plug there) started when he did. I did, however, go back and listen several times (I couldn’t believe what I was hearing) and found very little truth or fact in his speech. At times, it even sounded like he was running for office ...

No need to fear the refugees?

Over Christmas and New Year’s, Germany had a rash of rapes and assaults. The numbers were shocking as they have never seen this kind of crime spree against woman. Over 100 “filed complaints” of rape and assault over the new year and police believe there are over 1000 male refugees involved. Rapes were conducted by “rape gangs” and women were ...

Engage: How to Talk Politics with Complete Strangers (Yes, you CAN do it!)

(TRS Lead writer – Gwendolyn Sims) In these chaotic, contradictory, and downright confusing times, I’m often asked how to talk politics with strangers. As conservatives, we are by nature, well, conservative, but that shouldn’t stop us from talking about what we stand for and what we believe. In fact, that unwillingness to articulate what and who we are, often works ...

Merry Christmas to all who still celebrate!

Happy Holidays to those who really don’t know what to celebrate or why they celebrate! Happy Run-Up-Your -Debt Day! Or Happy Festivus! Happy Happy! Whatever floats your boat as they say. Unless you want to go back to pre-Catholic church days, it’s simply Christmas. Yes, for those of you scholars who think you’re going to school me, save your brain ...

Stone Prophet Gore?

I would like to know how many times one has to get predictions wrong before you kick them to the curb? In the Old Testament when a prophet said he had a word from God and it didn’t happen they stoned him! Seven years ago today, Al Gore predicted in front of a German audience that the “North Polar Ice ...

USWCC endorses Hillary based on anatomy

There was a time when the name “Chamber of Commerce” held a level of clout and credibility as an organization who advocated for businesses, especially small businesses. This week I received a press release from the US Women’s Chamber of Commerce (USWCC) announcing their endorsement for Hillary Clinton. My initial reaction was “Oh great. Women endorsing a woman just because ...

PC Police: 14 and Counting!

Last week we had what some are calling the second worst terror attack on American soil since 9/11. I say some because, at the time of this writing, I am still waiting for most of mainstream, left-leaning media to call it what it is… an attack by extreme religious Muslim terrorists. Period! What are they waiting for? They had no ...
