The Best We Can Do: Freedom and Independence For America

Tim Gerrity: We may not always get what we want. We may not always get what we need. Just so’s we don’t get what we deserve! –True Colors, 1991 Do you ever get the feeling we’re getting exactly what we deserve? As the Crisis deepens, 13ers will feel little stake in the old order, little sense that their names and signatures are on the social contract. They will have reached full adult maturity without ever having believed in either the American Dream or American exceptionalism. Read more →

Loretta Lynch Mob UPDATE

“I think it’s important that as we again talk about the importance of free speech we make it clear that actions predicated on violent talk are not America,” said Lynch. “They are not who we are, they are not what we do, and they will be prosecuted.” (source: Daily Wire) Take a slide on the slippery slope.

I am so embarrassed. I didn’t even know that Fred Sauer, Gretchen Logue, and Anne Gassel were suing Missouri over Common Core. Did you know that? (I probably knew it and forgot. Sorry.)

Michelle Obama’s Dictates Force Eureka High PTO To Beg

When did first ladies become dictators? Seriously. The president’s family has no more authority than anyone else. The reason people show contempt for activist spouses of presidents is the same reason history hates Marie Antoinette. I know, the all-Democrat Congress passed the school nutrition law in 2010, but Michelle Obama wrote it.
