Assessing the modern left and the Democratic Party during this campaign season shows they hate the South; they think the Southern white male represents everything that is wrong with this country. As a proud son of the South, it makes it difficult for me to support the Democrats, despite loathing Donald Trump, because they hate our community, our families, our culture, our way of life, and our beliefs.

There is a particular strand of feminism, mostly predominant on college campuses and within the online echo chambers of the social justice warriors, that is philosophically problematic at all levels.

Liberals have a desperate need to remove any reference to Islam when describing the threat; they prefer Marxist, anti-imperialist, and other reductionist arguments, claiming that it is economic exploitation, a history of colonization, or patriarchy that leads to such attacks. Conservatives, instead, generally prefer a shallow critique of Islam by anachronistically...Read More
Conservatives have had several setbacks in the last few weeks. But it is time to stop licking our wounds and prepare for the next battle.

Here is the best battle plan to strike fast and hard against the enemy forces....Read More
