Constitution – "We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." Abraham Lincoln. 

Politics – After 675 days of investigation, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 warrants, and 500 interviews with the release of the Mueller Report, we finally know there never was any collusion between President Trump or his campaign and the Russian government, nothing but false charges, innuendo, slander, and a smear campaign by sore losers and megaphone media.

Politics – Trump was known for his TV catchphrase, “You’re fired!” so why are people surprised that he continues to replace Cabinet appointees who do not deliver results?

Politics – The vast majority of people who are against socialism and communism either lived under or remember the abysmal conditions under socialism and communism.

Politics – In the Democrat Party failure qualifies you for higher office as first Beto” O’Rourke loses his Senatorial bid and now Mayor de Blasio proves as he moves New York City closer to bankruptcy, he joins the gaggle of failed politicians yearning to run for President.

Politics – The “bad news” is the 2020 Democrat primary field offers many intersectionality permutations for voters to choose from, but they are all are trying to appear more leftist.

Politics – The “good news” is the 2020 Democrat primary field is huge and will waste a lot of money disparaging each other to gain the nomination prior to the general election.

Politics – Reparations are naked redistribution of wealth to close financial gap between African-Americans and other Americans, and nothing about redemption or reconciliation.

Politics – Trump’s reelection chances continue to rise as Democrat presidential candidates “out left” each other with ill-conceived, unaffordable and unworkable campaign proposals.

Media – After propping up Obama’s approval for eight years, the mainstream media has been mostly negative to Trump but his approval rating is higher at the same time in office.

Media – Republican should match actions to words, boycotting all appearances and interviews with “fake” mainstream media: ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, MSNBC, CNN, NYT, WaP.

Truth - “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” Abraham Lincoln. 

Economy – The Trump tax and deregulation reform, which Speaker Pelosi called “the worst disaster in history, maintains a full employment, noninflationary economy with rising family purchasing power and a growing workforce.

Internet – Documents confirm Google maintains a “XPA news blacklist, implementing their "misrepresentation policy" and the "good neighbor policy" that targets conservative outlets.

Environment – The last three warming periods, the Minoan (Bronze Age), Roman (Iron Age) and Medieval (High Middle Ages), corresponded with large advances in global culture, science and technology, and were all much warmer than our current temperatures.

Education – There are 24 states and the District of Columbia that require public schools to teach Sex Education – who approved the content of this indoctrination?

Sexuality – The medical term "transsexual" was introduced in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 1980; the 1994 DSM introduced the term ‘gender identity disorder’; then 2013 DSM stopped transgenderism being an identity disorder, but merely a “dysphoria” or an unpleasant feeling completing its transformation to “normality”.

Crime – Criminal aliens make up nearly 20% of the population in U.S. federal prisons, with the vast majority of criminal aliens being Mexican nationals.

Crime – The “hate crime surge” is a false narrative because the number of hate crime hoaxes actually exceeds the number of convictions with the majority never happened.
