Lunatic LGBTQ Agendas on College Campuses

Think twice before sending your kids to college in America -- that's the sad and sorry takeaway of today's show. Why? Because the LGBTQ agenda is in full steam ahead mode on most places of higher learning in this country, and the fact is, students are being caught up in the crazy. Professors are being punished for refusing to call students by their chosen pronouns. Clubs are being created to advance an idea that transgenderism is normal, not abnormal. And those kids who disagree with the...


America Has Turned Into An Oligarchy

Once upon a time, politicians in America truly cared about representing the people who voted them into office, if only because they were sensitive to the need to at least appear to uphold the Constitution. But times have changed. And so has America's government. And nowadays more politicians from both parties (sadly) seem to represent the far left views of a handful of far left globalist-minded Big Tech types more than the taxpayers, more than the voters, more even than the Constitution....


America's Growing Cold War With China

America is falling, China is rising and relations between the two nations are in a cold standoff: Agree or disagree? And before deciding, realize the many, many ways China's communists are stepping toward global dominance, versus the many, many ways America, under feckless leadership and far leftist political influence, are stepping away from that role on the world stage. China's building up its military; America's not. China's making many of America's own products, like pharmaceuticals;...


America Needs a Great Awakening

America is facing a time where individual liberties are being stolen daily by a government filled with people who certainly don't fear, or even respect, the citizens who pay their salaries. The role of government has been flipped to the point where elected politicians -- or even unelected bureaucrats -- have become the bosses of the taxpaying citizens. Founding Fathers never intended America to be a place where government officials ruled, but rather a country where individuals took their...


America In Decline, Bible Prophecy On the March

Most Bible scholars agree there is no mention of America in Revelation or during end times. So this prompts the question: Where does America go? The nation is certainly in a state of decline -- much as many hate to admit. But in order to fight effectively, one must see the battlefield for what it is. In other words, you can't fight what you don't recognize as an enemy. But many wicked agendas are being advanced through the culture and the government by enemies of individualism who are...


Saving America From Socialism Before It’s Too Late

America has a socialism problem, and it’s only growing worse. Are you seeing the signs? They’re everywhere. The latest is Joe Biden’s call to grab gun rights from law-abiding American citizens, making it seem as if only that dastardly Second Amendment were gone, or massively watered, then school shootings would come to an immediate end, children would be safe, and lives would be saved. Take away the guns, though, and what holds government at bay? Founders knew government is force, and that...


Alice Cooper the Christian, and Other Interesting Discussions About God

God works through nations and individuals, and God works in mysterious ways: Those are a couple of biblical truths that can't be forgotten or downplayed, particularly during these perilous and dark times. What's interesting is when you start to understand how God works through those many in the church would scoff -- that's when you begin to realize how the greatness of the cross and the mercy of Christ can really become a force for good. It's the DNA of our great nation; it's the spirit of...


Joe Biden Rattles Waffle Cones, Not Sabers

America's enemies on the foreign stage aren't exactly fearful of President Joe Biden. In fact, they're mocking -- mocking, laughing, scorning, deriding and biding their time. For what? They're biding their time to take advantage of a feckless and weak president who can't even string together a coherent sentence, never mind put together a tough-on-terrorism, tough-on-socialism, tough-on-enemies-of-America foreign policy. North Korea rattles sabers. Joe Biden rattles waffle cones. China...


Democrats Target Youth To Advance Communist Interests

Democrats are to progressives are to socialists are to communists -- are to America's biggest political and cultural threats to youth. The differences in these parties' platforms are slim; the dangers to today's American youth are huge. Barack Obama was great at pitting youth against their parents and drumming up fake outrage about perceived insults, offenses, disparities and discriminations. But his way of pushing an anti-America narrative into the minds of the younger generations is simply...


Joe Biden Is No Donald Trump In War On Terror

Democrats by and large poll far behind Republicans when it comes to asking Americans to pick which party better protects against terrorism and would-be terrorists. But when it comes to comparing Joe Biden with Donald Trump, it's an apples to cupcake comparison. That is to say: there is no comparing. Americans believe Trump had their backs and that Biden -- well, that Biden's got an ice cream cone to lick. And those are the numbers from 2021, before America even had a full year of feckless...


Democrats Are Driving Away Women

Democrats, in case you haven't noticed, have a little bit of a woman problem this election year. The party has spent the last couple years regulating away all the political capital its members have forged with women through the years, and now, going into the midterms, polls are showing this key voting block is fleeing both Joe Biden and his party colleagues. Look at what the Dems have done in recent times: They've told women to keep their kids home from school. They've told moms the...


Barack Obama, Democrats Destroying Free Speech

It's no coincidence that just shortly after Barack Obama delivered a speech at Stanford University calling for more controls on disinformation -- that is to say, government crackdowns on free speech -- that Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security rushed into overdrive to announce a new Ministry of Truth, err, make that Board of Disinformation. The Democrats attack the Constitution every chance they get. And free speech is one of their largest points of attack. Why? Simply put, Democrats...


Democrats Gone Off Deep End On Roe v. Wade

Democrats are certainly showing their lunatic side, what with all the protests in the streets about Roe v. Wade, and the verbal assaults on the Supreme Court justices, and the storming to justices' homes in Maryland and Virginia, and the storming into Catholic churches in certain spots of the United States, and all. But why are they so lunatic? The leaked draft ruling doesn't do anything to Roe v. Wade but hand it to the states to decide. And in many states, legislators are busily working...


Joe Biden's Strangled Truths Are Same As School Teachings

President Joe Biden just called the Make America Great Again, or MAGA, crowd the most extremist political organization in all of American history. No wonder America's youth are graduating school with outright hatred of and hostility to this country: this is the same deceptive rhetoric they're being fed by public school teachers. Fact is, Biden's ridiculous claim ignores the Weather Underground, a radical political group that the FBI said bombed 25 government buildings. His claim also ignores...


God, Not Government, Heals and Helps the Abused

National statistics show that millions of children are abused by the ones they love each year -- sexually, mentally, physically, emotionally, psychologically. So what of these poor victims? The Democrats would have it believed the government is their only solution; the government is their only savior. But the truth is: Government keeps these poor souls in bondage, by not only telling them they're victims (which is true) but also by telling them their victim status means they can never amount...


Lies and Fear: The Left's Go-To Political Tools

When it comes to advancing an agenda, leftists know they have no principles, no platform and no real ideas that will resonate with American citizens, so they have to rely on lies and fear to advance their cause. Just think about it: If Democrats were honest about their socialist-slash-communist-slash-collectivist designs, how many voters would really vote for their candidates? Right; few. Only the illegals they let in the border; only the most radical of radicals who fund their party --...


Conservatism Needs Quick Injection of 'God-Given'

In America, individual rights come from God, and government is put in place only to secure and protect those rights, not grant them. But far too many times today's government stretches its boundaries and exerts its influences in ways that aren't constitutional, that aren't in line with Founding Father intents and that aren't even particularly moral in nature. If more Americans focused on the war over "God-given rights" instead of running from battle to battle, believing that the next...


Democrats Are Destroying the Military With Social Justice

Democrats destroy everything they touch -- but seriously, do they have to go after the military, too? The U.S. military is the finest in the world, the best trained, best funded, best equipped. But beginning under Barack Obama, and continuing under Joe Biden, is a determined push to turn America's fierce fighters into social justice experiments. Troops, airmen, Marines -- they're all being subjected to tens of thousands of hours of forced social justice training, including critical race...


Cultural Marxism Hits Hard At America

A new poll shows that a majority of likely American voters believe President Joe Biden is compromised or conflicted when it comes to dealing with China because of his family's long-running business partnerships with the communist country. What's more, it's not just Republicans who believe this; a large percentage of independents and even Democrats think he's conflicted on China. Add to that an undercover investigation conducted by Accuracy in Media that finds schools in America that have...


Christians In America Are Losing Free Speech

Christians in America certainly don't face the same intensity level of persecution felt by those of the faith in other countries; American evangelicals, for instance, aren't getting their heads cut off and aren't being thrown in jail for the simple act of worshipping God and reading the Bible at home. But remember: Churches were just shut down by government order due to the coronavirus clampdowns. And meanwhile, in schools across America, it's becoming harder and harder for youthful...
