Media – “The media is no longer an arm of the Democrat Party; the Democrat Party is now an arm of the media.” Rush Limbaugh.
Politics – Politics today are driven by the attempt, from the Left but increasingly from the Right, to force everyone to live precisely the same way with precisely the same values.
Politics – Republicans do not know how to behave like a political majority, especially when faced by Democrats in Congress who operate in lock step uniformity.
Politics – The only ones calling for more Russia election probes are the paranoid delusional tin-foil hatted conspiracy nuts – What part of “no evidence found” do they not understand?
Politics – If sanctuary cities can selectively enforce immigration laws, what prevents states or cities from selectively enforcing abortion, civil rights, marriage, religion, or sexuality laws?

Media – The liberal media narrative is: When Republicans fail to pass a bill, they’re doomed; and when they succeed, they are also doomed with every compromise as a catastrophe!
Media – Trump is using the Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” rule # 5 “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” against Elizabeth Warren, calling her “Faux-cahontas” or “Lie-awatha.”
Media – “Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” George Orwell.

Healthcare – The GOP Health Plan is neither an ObamaCare repeal nor replace, but actually a jury-rigged bailout of a crippled system for the appearance of a political victory.
Healthcare – The point of ObamaCare has always been to destroy the insurance risk pool and market state by state until there was no choice to implement government single-payer.
Judiciary – The Supreme Court must restore judicial legitimacy by reigning in out-of-control judges who interpret the Constitution to create “fake laws” to suit a social justice agenda.
Judiciary – The next step for President Trump is to fill the 120 openings on the lower federal courts with strong and principled jurists who protect the liberty of all Americans.

Education – Soon higher education selection will include criteria on faculty orientation and curriculum indoctrination, and eventually this will adversely impact college enrollment.
Education – When will the adults retake American campuses back from the hyper-sensitive, PC “snowflakes” and banish them from this bastion of free speech and intellectual diversity?
