    He's on-the-air, and on-fire. Chris Plante from WMAL in DC, is rated 8th of America's Top Talk Radio Show Hosts. His show is the "prep work" for many other shows. And, unlike the others, he pulls no punches, tells it like it is and doesn't take any BS from liberal, demonKKKrat, leftist, commie, socialist, fascist and anarchist callers. He's the guy we'd all like to sit down with and have a dbl-cheeseburger and a cold one, while talking about the state of America, and the crazies who are pulling the strings, behind-the-scenes.

    It is critical that the Republicans retake the House and keep the Senate and of course the White House. I have an idea the will: 1) show the American people whose side Republicans are on 2) show the American people whose side the Democrats are on because it will be impossible for them to oppose but they will 3) not cost very much because it is already happening

    The thirst among Republican voters isn't even for policy. It's for seeing the politicians they elected join the fray. I¬íve been hammering away at conservatives and Republicans for failing to defend the symbols of national pride the woke leftist mob has been tearing at in recent weeks. Yesterday on the ‚ÄúBrian Kilmeade Show,‚ÄĚ I admitted to letting my anger get the best of me a bit. Brian said I was speaking not as a publisher but as an American ¬ó and that¬ís fair. But part of my frustration is that this is such an obvious challenge that anti-American leftists and...

    After months of panic porn and fraudulent projections and statistics about the China coronavirus and horrible unconstitutional mandates from corrupt politicians, it’s long past time to look at the data and manage according to the facts. This is what successful business people and leaders do in the real world. Since the world was first introduced to the China coronavirus the situation became political. However, some people could see right through it.We first reported on March 17, 2020, on the controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and his irresponsible and criminal fear...

    Rep. Andy Barr on Tuesday won the Republican primary in Kentuckyís 6th Congressional District, about one week after his wifeís sudden death. Barr, who will be looking to secure a fifth term in the House of Representatives in November, won with 94 percent of the vote with 25 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press. The congressmanís wife, Carol Barr, died suddenly on June 16 in her Lexington home at the age of 39. The coroner later said Carol was in her home office and the cause of death appeared to be a heart condition called mitral valve...

    American Thinker ^ | June 21, 2020 | Rober Weissberg
    The contemporary political landscape is mired in a tsunami of bad ideas. Who would have ever anticipated that defunding police departments, emptying out prisons, eliminating cash bail, free health care, free college, looting as a legitimate form of social protest politics, among other screwball ideas would go mainstream? Socialism? How did views resting on blatant falsehoods jump from the academyís ideological wet markets to the New York Times? A full explanation must wait until passions cool, but in the meantime let me offer a personal account based on decades of university teaching where this nonsense initially metastasized from a few...
  • Dexamethasone vs. Hydroxychloroquine: The Race for a Coronavirus Cure Shows Why Politics and Science Don't Mix

    The National Interest ^ | 06/20/2020 | Jeffrey Singer
    Earlier this week researchers in the U.K reported that the inexpensive and commonly‚Äź‚Äčused steroid dexamethasone reduced the fatality rate of COVID-19 patients on ventilators by 30 percent. This wonderful news makes a lot of sense to health care practitioners. As we learn more about the workings of the novel coronavirus we now understand that many of the most critical cases result from an over‚Äź‚Äčreaction of the patient¬ís immune system (called a ¬ďcytokine storm¬Ē) causing inflammation and destruction of tissues and organs that can ultimately lead to death. Steroids have long been employed to counteract acute and chronic immune and hyperimmune...

    Before the coverage of the Trump campaign rally, CSPAN treated its viewers to a lecture on racism and reparations from some unknown academic from Oklahoma University's African Studies Department. Oh, yes, the site of the rally is controversial too because there was a violent race riot in Tulsa 99 years ago which is Trump's fault.

    It is increasingly sad that the state of affairs in the country today. I am a creative artist-a composer of serious music. I have to keep so totally silent as to how I feel about the totalitarian nonsense that is championed by my ďfriendsĒ on Facebook and Instagram. I can say nothing about having a problem with the Stalinist thuggery promoted by people who should know better. Let alone my support for DJT. So in order to get my music listened to and not get banned, I keep silent. No one of those folks will ever come here so I...
  • GOP Members Say Pelosi Cut Republicans Out Of Policing Bill, Preventing Bipartisan Reform

    The Federalist ^ | June 10, 2020 | Jonah Gottschalk
    After kneeling for close to nine minutes before the cameras Monday morning, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced the Justice in Policing Bill of 2020. Following bipartisan support for reforms, some including Black Caucus Chair Rep. Bass (D-Calif.), hoped for a cooperative tackling of the issue. First steps by Pelosi, however, suggest that this attempt is falling into the same partisan trap previous attempts at reform have. Rumors began swirling the morning of Pelosi¬ís announcement that Republicans had been blocked from contributing to the immense bill. Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) confirmed that was the case. ¬ďAs a Member of...

    Rep. Pelosi and Sen. Schumer lead Democrats in 8 minutes, 46 seconds of silence. Showing their solidarity with Americans protesting the police killing of George Floyd and other black men, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and many of their fellow Democrats knelt in silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds at the U.S. Capitol on Monday. That's how long a Minneapolis policeman kept his knee on George Floyd's neck, until he lost consciousness and died. The horrifying moments, as Floyd lay handcuffed on the ground, happened as three other officers stood by and did...
