Bern Slap: Verizon CEO Blasts Bernie

18, Apr

By Katie Kieffer

Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam

Bernie Sanders was hit hard last week when the CEO of Verizon called him out on his hypocritical support of employment practices that will make it harder for Bernie’s voter base—Millennials—to earn a living wage.

“Feeling the Bern of reality yet, Bernie?” Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam asked after the socialist senator accused Verizon of planning to “outsource decent paying jobs” due to “corporate greed”—and then hugged union supporters on the Verizon picket line in Brooklyn, New York. Continue reading

Affirmative Action for Thugs

11, Apr

By Katie Kieffer


“Between capitalists and communists or socialists… for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works!” President Obama told a room full of Millennials in Argentina last month.

It’s hard to take Obama seriously after watching him jet to Cuba in March and pose before a mural—dedicated to militant Marxist Che Guevara—and do “The Wave” at a baseball game with current Cuban dictator Raúl Castro. Continue reading

The Millennial Case for Ted Cruz

29, Feb

By Katie Kieffer

Sen. Ted Cruz

Given a choice between Trump, Cruz or Rubio—for whom will Millennials vote? The answer to this question is key to making the best strategic decision on Super Tuesday. Because Millennials determined the past two presidential elections.

Sen. Ted Cruz stands out for his ability to steal independent young swing voters away from Hillary Clinton and win the White House. Let me explain. Continue reading

Middle Class Is Ready For Third Party

25, Jan

By Katie Kieffer


A blizzard worse than Blizzard 2016—an icy storm of furious American voters—is descending upon Washington as voters prepare a revenge mutiny.

“Revenge mutiny” is my term for throwing overboard traitors who threw you overboard first. It’s happening within both the Republican and Democratic parties. We’ve knocked on doors. We spent weekends in drab phone banks making calls for candidates who promised the opposite of what they delivered. We’re done. Continue reading

Strikeout! RNC Won’t Play Ball

18, Jan

By Katie Kieffer


To win the White House, you must make all four bases in the game of political baseball. The Republican National Committee is trying to win by skipping the bases altogether—a recipe for striking out. Continue reading

After washing down your depression with a shot of whiskey, pull yourself together. I’ll help you get your job back—from Mexico.

It’s natural to be depressed when you lose your job through no fault of your own. Millions of Americans like you are unemployed or underemployed. Specifically, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that around 94 million Americans are out of the workforce. Continue reading

GOP Elites, Stop Biting Our Hands That Feed You

If the GOP establishment wants to win in 2016, they should stop biting our hands as we spoon food into its mouth—or prepare to starve.

Last week’s budget deal, which raises our debt ceiling by $1 trillion and increases federal spending by nearly $80 billion over two years, was quietly passed by the Republican-controlled Congress. Also last week, the Republican National Committee (RNC) endorsed one of America’s biggest spending architects to replace John Boehner as House Speaker: Rep. Paul Ryan. Continue reading

GOP Elite’s Secret Plan to Expel Donald Trump and Ben Carson

19, Oct

By Katie Kieffer

GOP elites are drawing on fine cigars while drawing up a secret plan to crush top-polling candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson.

Today I’ll let you in on a quiet movement within the upper echelons of the GOP to take down politically incorrect presidential candidates, especially Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson. Unless Common Core Crusader Jeb Bush is your guy—and I hope he’s not—you and I must expose this movement before it ends our vision for a people’s advocate in the White House in 2016.

God “saw all the things that he had made and they were very good” yet EPA policies imply God’s creation, especially CO2-exhaling humans, is very bad. Who’s right?

Today, I’ll use science to prove God right and the EPA wrong in its war on men—and the energy, safety and jobs men extract from refining natural resources like coal and oil. Continue reading

Never Accept Their Premise: Only Obama Will Shut Down Government

21, Sep

By Katie Kieffer

Washington, D.C.

Government shutdowns are not cancer and today I’ll show why we must stop taking the bait. Indeed, I’ll show why we will lose elections if we are unwilling to shut down the government in order to protect human life and reform immigration policy.

CNN’s Dana Bash did not speak much during last week’s presidential debate—but, when she did, she succeeded in corralling GOP candidates into a corner. The corner of accepting her wobbly tri-fold premise: Continue reading
