So You’re Voting Your Conscience…

25, Jul

By Katie Kieffer

Vote

Many people conflate “voting your conscience” with writing-in a third party candidate—a mistake caused by thinking you are personally responsible for the actions of your politicians.

Last week, Sen. Ted Cruz confused evangelical voters who hold his opinion in high regard. In his speech at the GOP National Convention in Ohio, he subtly advised them not to vote for the GOP nominee, Donald Trump. Despite being invited by the Trump campaign to command a prime speaking slot, Cruz did not use the slot to unify the party and defeat Hillary Clinton. Instead, he preached vague marching orders: Continue reading

Be Yourself, Trump: Go Big Or Go Home

17, Jul

By Katie Kieffer

Donald Trump

When 125,000 balloons drop on Donald Trump this week as he becomes the Republican presidential nominee at the national convention in Ohio, he better go big—or go home.

How? Not by turning the GOP “big tent” into a bigger circus. By refusing to back down from political incorrectness and bold ideas. Continue reading

Clock Boy Messes With Texas

11, Jul

By Katie Kieffer

Texas cowboy

Don’t mess with Texas, Clock Boy. If you’re too young to remember the Alamo, Google it. Then decide if you still want to ‘come and take it.’

Two weeks ago, the notorious Clock Boy, Ahmed Mohamed, returned to Texas after spending nine months in Qatar where he says he finally felt free to learn about Islam. Continue reading

Baiting Millennials to Bankroll Obamacare

27, Jun

By Katie Kieffer

Millennials

Giving Millennials discounts on Lyft rides is the newest attempt to bait them into subsidizing a substandard healthcare system.

Last Tuesday, federal health officials pronounced a sneaky plan to scrutinize the tax records of young people ages 18-34 and compile a list of those who paid the penalty rather than signing up for Obamacare. Continue reading

Can We Give Glenn Beck A Way Out of His Never-Trump Vow?

20, Jun

By Katie Kieffer

Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck is one of America’s most influential commentators, and we need to help him save face while abandoning his “Never Trump” vow.

“My children,” is the primary motivator Beck lists for refusing to endorse Donald Trump now that his favored candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, is out of the race. “Trump is the face of the GOP. Well, that makes us… pretty racist. It makes us big government guys. …I’m none of those things. …and I refuse to have my children think that I tolerated that.” Continue reading

A Vote Against Hillary

13, Jun

By Katie Kieffer


Trump never promised me anything. Indeed, he refused to promise not to run third party. Yet those who proposed political marriage—or unity—to Trump are now filing for divorce, even though it means losing our country to Hillary.

If you’re a regular reader, you have likely intuited that my top choices for president were Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Ted Cruz. But I refuse to join the “Never Trump” crowd and feel drawn to explain why—so that you too may decide. Continue reading

When Refugees Get An Olympic Team

06, Jun

By Katie Kieffer

Olympics

Allowing refugees to compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil won’t solve the global refugee crisis—but it will benefit political opportunists.

Last week, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that it had selected 10 athletes—four females and six males—to compete in Rio. The refugees will carry the IOC flag, since they have no common national flag. Continue reading

By Katie Kieffer

WWII veterans

Whether chilling on a beach or grilling out on a patio, Memorial Day is a perfect time to remember the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers with their stories of bravery. Today, I’ll share some war stories with you that will hopefully encourage you to in turn share your own family’s stories.

War stories can inspire the next generation of young Americans to grow up with respect for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their freedom. If these stories are not shared, they will die. Pull up a chair to the bonfire, gather your family around—and tell a story that will impact young hearts and minds forever Continue reading

They’re Coming For Your Home

23, May

By Katie Kieffer

First Time Home Buyers

They’re coming for your home. Right now. I suggest you save it. I can guide you, but you must do exactly as I say.

Except, this isn’t The Matrix. You’re no actor, like Keanu Reeves, playing a distraught programmer-hacker named “Neo.” Nor am I an actor, like Laurence Fishburne, playing your guide “Morpheus.” This is real life, baby.

Your home or apartment—and the neighborhood in which you live—is under siege. “Agents”—sans black glasses and black business suits—who work for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have written a new regulation called “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” (AFFH) that rejects your Fourth Amendment private property rights under the guise of fighting “discrimination.” Continue reading

When Batman Dies

09, May

By Katie Kieffer

Batman

Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV was a real-life Batman—a self-made superhero. On behalf of our troops and veterans, it is important to properly honor this 31-year-old Millennial—who gave the ultimate sacrifice at the hands of ISIL thugs in Iraq last Tuesday—but was painted as the progeny of a pilferer.

The Bronze Star Medal with Combat “V” recipient courageously took on some 125 ISIS fighters and 20 assault vehicles to rescue a handful of U.S. military advisors. All of the advisors escaped—but their rescuer, Keating IV, was fatally hit. For this sacrifice, outlets like CNN honored Keating IV by telling the world he was the grandson of a man who “served time for fraud, racketeering and conspiracy.” Continue reading
