Facing facts is hard, so progressives obfuscate on mass shooters, suicides, drugs, loneliness, lack...

Read this short passage from a Tucker Carlson/Neil Patel column this morning about the recent mass shootings in the US: "The AMERICAN TRAGEDY Our Leaders Don't Want To Talk About"  ...Author James Howard Kunstler, one of...

More infuriating — and dangerous? — than the Jessica Yasiv case, if that’s even...

Texas killer’s “manifesto” predicts idiotic political blame game

The Washington Examiner has an excellent analysis of the Texas mass murderer's "manifesto," which apparently nobody in the media has actually read, or if they did, they went into it with the world's biggest...

Leftists should check their idiot at the door

Gillette shaves off BILLIONS in profits after “toxic masculinity” and “transgender” ads idiocy
