Where are the real Democrats?

The current political situation requires a review America’s political history.

Air of desperation permeates actions by Dems

There’s an air of desperation wafting from the alt-left and their Democratic co-dependents. It’s transparent in their tactics and the stench permeates their strategy.

No such thing as liberal tea party

A new liberal tea party? Really? Donald Trump’s presidency began with violent protests erupting on Inauguration Day, followed immediately by the Nasty Women’s March Against Everything.

Political hypocrisy evident on left – and right
