No Sera’ Infringido

With the backing of the UN and the approval of the Biden administration, Mexico has filed a court case that could impose the UN small arms treaty, clearing the way for foreign nations to sue and dictate firearms policy in our Constitutional Republic.

National Insecurity, Courtesy of Joe Biden

As for the President of the United States of America, I believe that the most important title and role is that of Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces. The national insecurity insanity of the Biden administration is putting our safety and security at risk, and for what?

Don’t Obstruct the Leftist Implosion

The Democrats are in a box; they know it, and the last thing Republicans should do is break out a pencil and create an opening for them to escape. When your enemy, political opposition, has led themselves into a U-shaped ambush, you simply close the door of escape.

There Are No Adult Leftists

Yeah, da ol' Colonel had to bite his lip, but then I realized what the real issue is...there are no adult leftists. Much the same as Peter Pan, they are stuck in a permanent childish, immature, irrational, and imbecile state of mental existence.

A Spring Semester Final Exam for Democrats

All across these United States of America, college and university students are preparing for Spring semester final exams. Well, maybe not so much on the campus of Columbia University, where they are busy chanting intifada and revolution—serious calls to violence. I want to honor this special time, which is a rite of passage for college students, and still, to this day, a cause of nightmares for me when I have dreams I am still in college and have not studied. I have created a Spring semester final exam for Democrats.
