Bold & Blunt: Public schools teach kids subversion techniques

It's not just about teaching that capitalism is evil. It's about filling the minds of the youngest and most vulnerable that America itself is evil -- and must be changed. This is why the public schools might have finally reached the stage of unfixable. Published August 17, 2023

Bold & Blunt: Joe Biden and his climate foolishness

It's bad enough America has a White House leader that's weak. But it's even worse when the policies that this president is able to advance are all the anti-American ones. Witness: climate change. Published August 15, 2023

Police raid on Kansas newspaper latest sign of America’s downfall

These aren't the best of times. These are the worst of times. A simple allegation can oh-so-quickly turn into a cause to toss out the Constitution. This is what happens when a nation formed on a model of God first, government subservient, abandons that premise and flips the structure of power. Published August 15, 2023

Former President Donald Trump speaks at a fundraiser event for the Alabama GOP, Friday, Aug. 4, 2023, in Montgomery, Ala. Just one month after Donald Trump’s January 2021 phone call to suggest Georgia’s secretary of state could overturn his election loss, District Attorney Fani Willis announced she was looking into possibly illegal “attempts to influence” the results.

Trump’s indictments all the more reason to vote for him

Another day, another Donald Trump indictment. The takeaway is this: The more indictments fly Trump's way, the more voters should dig down and decide he's the guy to elect in 2024. At this point, voters should choose Trump because of the indictments, not in spite of them. Published August 14, 2023

Bold & Blunt: Perils from across the pond

Digital currency is coming. And that means individual freedom is going.

Published August 11, 2023

Fear in the church: Too many of God’s people afraid to fight

Sixty-nine percent of Protestant pastors in a Lifeway Research survey said they see a "growing sense of fear" among their congregants, and another 63%, that their pews are also filled with people who feel "dread" about the "future of Christianity" in America and around the world. That explains a lot. Published August 11, 2023

FBI’s alarming targeting of Catholics as ‘potential terrorists’ grows more alarming

FBI Director Christopher A. Wray may have testified under oath to Congress that a memo calling out Catholics as "potential terrorists" was a "single product by a single field office." But turns out the good director lied. Or, in deep state lingo, that he erroneously stated facts in a manner that was unintentionally false. Published August 10, 2023

Tipping toward fatigue: Consumers exploited by entitlement workforce

It's bad enough America raised a generation to expect trophies simply for the so-called achievement of participating -- in so doing, fueling an entitlement culture. Now we've got to add to this entitlement mindset by tipping service workers simply for the achievement of doing what they're paid to do, anyway? Published August 10, 2023

In this Aug. 30, 2021, file photo provided by the U.S. Air Force, soldiers, assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division, prepare to board a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III aircraft at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. A State Department report says the department failed to do enough contingency planning before the collapse of the U.S.-backed government in Afghanistan. The review repeatedly blames the administration of former President Donald Trump for not doing enough planning or processing of visas after beginning the withdrawal.

Gold Star families deserve better than Biden

Thirteen American service members were killed during the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan -- a botching that was overseen by President Biden. But Biden understands how the family members of these military heroes feel because his son, Beau, died of cancer. How clueless. How self-absorbed. Published August 9, 2023

Democrats hitting brick wall with younger voters

The midterms may have seen a surprising surge of young voters for Democrats, and the youthful Gen-Zers may have helped push Joe Biden's presidential tally in 2020, but that was then, this is now. Democrats are losing the youth and quite possibly, the youth vote. They brought it on themselves. Published August 8, 2023

The Louisiana state Capitol stands prominently, April 4, 2023, in Baton Rouge, La. A slew of new Louisiana laws, recently passed by the Republican-dominated Legislature and signed by Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards, went into effect Tuesday, Aug. 1. Among the new laws are ones that increase punishments for fentanyl-related crimes, a requirement that every public school classroom display the phrase “In God We Trust,” and an addition to the state’s age verification law to access pornography websites.

‘In God We Trust’ makes a comeback

Louisiana just signed into law a requirement that all public school administrators make sure the motto "In God We Trust" is displayed in every classroom, in every building, in every district. It's a law that's been passed in several other states of late as well. Praise the Lord. God is making a comeback in America. Published August 7, 2023

Bold & Blunt: When police harm, not help

Big Pharma’s outrageous, despicable multibillion-dollar tax dodge

Americans who earn well may have to pay as much as 37% of income in taxes each year. But not so the pharmaceuticals. For 2022, eight Big Pharma companies scooped a combined $110 billion in profits, but they only paid a combined $2 billion in U.S. taxes. That's about 2%. They exploit the free market. Published August 4, 2023

Republican presidential candidate, former President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally, Saturday, July 29, 2023, in Erie, Pa.

But statements about that effort form the backbone of his reelection campaign. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki, File)

Democrats and their futile targeting of Trump and patriotic America

Jack Smith is a man who enjoys pointing fingers and thunderously proclaiming wrongs and self-righteously swooping to attack. He doesn't prosecute so much as persecute. That makes him the man of the hour for Democrats. But Americans have awakened to the awareness Dems serve dark lords. Published August 4, 2023

President Joe Biden arrives on Air Force One at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, on July 28, 2023. The indictment of Donald Trump for attempting to overturn his election defeat is a new front in what Joe Biden has described as the battle for American democracy. It's the issue that Biden has described as the most consequential struggle of his presidency. The criminal charges are a reminder of the stakes of next year's campaign, when Trump is hoping for a rematch with Biden. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)

Biden, Democrats have a hate affair with the First Amendment

White House officials during the coronavirus years pressed Facebook-slash-Meta censors to strip away memes that poked fun of COVID-19 shots, according to the platform's internal documents. This White House hates the First Amendment. Published August 3, 2023

Contestants compete for the Miss Trans Northeast 22 beauty pageant in Guwahati, India, Nov. 30, 2022. When India's Supreme Court handed down its landmark 2014 ruling recognizing transgender Indians as a third gender separate from males and females, the judges were in a sense affirming ideas about gender that had circulated in India for thousands of years. But public attitudes toward transgender people have been slow to change, still hewing to European ideas about sexuality introduced by 19th-century British colonial rulers.

Bold & Blunt: Society’s dangerous downgrade of men

Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, retired, said America's facing a problem of masculinity -- that is to say, a failure to raise and respect godly men -- and that all of society is suffering from this mass wussification of the male. Too true. Published August 2, 2023
