Only Conservatives Are Condemned: The Case of Hank Eliot
Knowing how to navigate through politically turbulent times is an essential survival tool for the savvy career politician.  But should those same calculating strategies be employed by religious organizations such as the Catholic Church?

Religious leaders have come to realize that the leftists in the U.S. have cornered the market regarding the use and control of media propaganda and that they can strike first with their false narratives. “The early bird catches the worm” so to speak. Reputations are made and broken by the powerful and unrelenting leftist media machine that takes no prisoners and uses the carrot and stick method of persuasion.


Can America Survive The Latest Plague?

Can America Survive The Latest Plague?
A mob of foreigners is planning to march across the United States border knowing in advance that numerous sanctuary cities will break federal law and welcome them in.  Unidentified individuals being allowed to vote in U.S. elections, riots at universities with the intention of preventing any discussion that does not agree with theirs. These realities are all happening now, and are all symptoms of a political plague that has been visited upon America and most of Europe.

In 430 B.C. Greece was hit by smallpox. In 1347, Europe contended with the “Black Death.”  And today America and much of western civilization are facing leftism.  Not the traditional pathogen seen in earlier plagues,  nevertheless all contagious and deadly.

Forget Russia - Lobbyists Are The Real Influencers of U.S. Elections

There is plenty of real collusion in Washington, but it has very little to do with Russia.  It’s the unholy alliance between lobbyists and politicians that have caused the most damage to America’s democracy.  Lobbyists and special interest groups openly try to influence our elections for their own gain to the detriment of the country and yet there has never been an investigation.

The Swamp Defeats Trump

With the passing of the 1.3 trillion dollar budget bill, one thing has become crystal clear, insane liberals and the corrupt Washington elite always win the day no matter what the election results may say. 

Even with the House, Senate, and Presidency in the hands of Republicans, liberal Democrats and the rest of the swamp came away with one giant victory after another.


Why Conservatives Must Not Compromise On Gun Control

Why Conservatives Must Not Compromise On Gun Control
The Stoneman Douglas High School shooting followed the Las Vegas shooting, which followed the Southerland Springs Church shooting which followed the Orlando Nightclub shooting.

Once again the topic of gun control has taken center stage after the recent horrific events in Florida.  And there is a good reason why there has been no settlement on the issue.

There will never be a solution to the mass shootings in this country until there is an understanding by both sides regarding the fears both sides of the aisle have in their attempts to look for an answer.


A Frightening Truth America Needs To Face

A Frightening Truth America Needs To Face
When President Trump made the campaign promise that he was going to drain the swamp, he disturbed a bees nest that hadn’t been rattled with that much force since President John Kennedy said he was going to disband the CIA.

Unknown to the American people at the time candidates Clinton and Trump campaigned for the top job in the country, rogue senior members inside the United States Justice Department, the F.B.I., as well as the nation’s liberal media, worked in tandem to all but assure a Hillary Clinton Presidential victory.  It was far more nefarious than merely giving Clinton favorable media coverage. In one example, although there was clear and substantial evidence that Hillary broke several laws by using an unauthorized, unsecured, private server for all of her email communications, and then destroyed evidence during the F.B.I.‘s investigation, F.B.I. Head, James Comey saw no reason to recommend to The Department of Justice charging Clinton with a crime.  As flagrant as Comey’s disregard for the law was, things were about to get much worse.


The United States Constitution vs. Leftists

The United States Constitution vs. Leftists
When leftists don’t get their way, much like a 5-year-old child, they usually throw a tantrum and resort to extreme measures without regard to the consequences. A recent example of this kind of childish behavior is on display where California now wants to secede from the United States because Donald Trump won the Presidential election.  They are calling the movement “Calexit” named closely after “Brexit” where the U.K. passed a referendum to leave the European Union. The California strategy, which is picking up momentum, is planning for California to secede from the U.S. by 2020. But just as an emotional outburst doesn’t lend itself to clear logical reasoning, many questions remain unanswered regarding how California will handle its infrastructure needs, military obligations, and currency, etc. as a separate country.


How The Memo Exposes A Disregard For Law

How The Memo Exposes A Disregard For Law
Regardless of what the Democratic leadership is now telling the American people, the Memo is not a small thing.  It is the most revealing example of how the left broke the law in order to change an election.

The Democrats vigorously protested releasing the Memo not because of national security concerns but because its release uncovers the unsavory underbelly of the left’s goal to undermine the American election process.  The American people were treated like infants by Democrats and the leftist propaganda network, AKA the mainstream media who continually insisted that releasing the memo would compromise national security, yet the very moment the memo was made public those same entities did a 180-degree turn and said it was a ‘Nothing Burger’  having no consequence whatsoever. The American people were also told that the Memo spelled doom to the F.B.I.‘s ability to gather future information on the bad guys. But that turned out to be false as well because not a single secret surveillance method was exposed,  nor were any names of field agents published who were involved in ongoing investigations.


Democrats, Republicans, and Trump

Sep 13, 2017 — Rick Hayes

Implementing new strategies affecting the economy, changing international trade agreements and taking on the complexities of immigration reform are only a few of the challenges facing President Trump and American society.  The President not only must find solutions to many formidable problems but he must navigate through unfriendly political waters in Washington.  Add to the mix that hundreds of thousands of students across this nation have received years of unchallenged liberal indoctrination, and that kind of brainwashing produces real consequences especially when a percentage believe that physical violence is a legitimate means to an end. So whatever path the President decides to take he does so within his political party that has a severe identity crisis, the opposition political party and media that desperately want him impeached and a country that is divided in a way never before seen since the Civil War.


The Birth of Antifa and The Lefts Roadmap To A New America

Aug 26, 2017 — Rick Hayes

There are many Americans that refuse to believe and perhaps are on some level of denial of the fact that the left seeks to upend American culture and rewrite history.  It seems unimaginable that America has within its borders people who not only reject the very foundation and principles upon which this country came into existence but are actively seeking to alter American society toward a more historically failed socialist system. 

The term “the left,” can mean many things to different people but mainly the term is referring to individuals sympathetic to or members of the Democratic party whose political and cultural makeup and motives are inconsistent with traditional American values.


Back To The Corrupt Future

May 12, 2017 — Rick Hayes

Back in the day when the three networks ruled the airways, people escaped the rigors of everyday life and gathered with their family to enjoy watching a television program.  And although everyone knew that in real life, justice doesn’t always prevail, for those few hours at least, families could be confident that before the credits rolled across their television sets, somehow good would triumph over evil.

Imagine how those same families of the past would have reacted if one of the three networks created a program series based on the future scandals of the Obama Administration. It would be a kind of “Back to the Corrupt Future” television series, where episodes would cover the numerous national disgraces. For sure, there would be a mountain of illegal material to work with; a virtual treasure trove of unlawful and unconstitutional activity.

For sure, there would be a mountain of illicit material to work with; a virtual treasure trove of illegal and unconstitutional activity.


The Swamp Is Bigger Than Expected

Apr 4, 2017 — Rick Hayes

The interesting thing about a swamp is that you don’t know what’s in it until you start to drain it.

Spying on citizens, undermining political rivals using government agencies with impunity and ignoring the rule of law destroy the stability of a nation. They make up the vapors emanating from the Washington swamp that President Trump declared he would drain but they are only the bubbling byproducts of the massive network of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, politically appointed ideological judges and lawless law enforcement officials.

Entrenched power entangled with opposing yet co-dependent desires that run counter to the interests of the American people is the sum total of the motivating forces within the swamp that Trump is facing.
