Liberalism Created the WDBJ Killer

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke9/1/15
Barack Obama won’t be saying, “If I had a psycho son, he’d look like Vester Lee.” But he might as well. Because Vester Lee Flanagan II, the bigoted maniac who murdered the WDBJ reporter and cameraman Wednesday on live TV, was a philosophical offspring of the Left. More » • (18 views)

TV Series Review: Narcos

Narcosby David Norris8/29/15
This superbly produced Netflix series is part crime drama, part history lesson, and is definitely worth watching. I didn’t have a lot of background about the Columbian drug cartels going into this, but much of the ‘headlines’ from the 1980’s came popping back into my head as the story unfolded.

The Wrong Headedness of Multiculturalism

MultiCultiThumbby FJ Rocca8/28/15
The misconception that America is multicultural is being touted by the Left and too easily bought by many as a magnanimous gesture to people who came from different cultures to the great Melting Pot of America, not to live in separate enclaves More » • (52 views)

Immigration: The Refugee Scam

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke8/27/15
Jeb Bush has called illegal migration “an act of love.” And all over the West we see nations being loved to death, with endless human waves from Third World countries washing ashore.

TheCrossby Patricia L. Dickson8/23/15
