From Helpless to Hopeless: Bernie’s Students

15, Feb

By Katie Kieffer

Young Bernie Sanders supporters

Bernie Sanders relies on Millennials’ youth to sell his promise to make college “free.” Here’s what every American—young and mature—needs to know about college debt before voting in November.

“This is 2016! In many ways, a college degree is equivalent to a high school degree… We should have free tuition at public colleges and universities. That should be a right of all Americans regardless of the income of their families!” Sanders declared during last week’s Democratic debate. Continue reading

14-year-old “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed has nothing on 5-year-old “Dandelion Boy” Drew Johnson. Hands down, Johnson is the real victim of our politically correct culture.

Clock Boy has achieved global notoriety on par with Cecil the lion whereas few Americans have heard the story of Dandelion Boy: Indiana kindergartner Drew Johnson of Cumberland Elementary School. Today I’ll utilize Dandelion Boy’s story to explain a trend in American public schools and playgrounds that threatens your child’s long-term psychological development. Continue reading

Girl Gone Wild: Hillary’s $350 Billion “Free” College Plan

26, Oct

By Katie Kieffer

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton didn’t become Washington, D.C.’s #1 Girl Gone Wild by winning wet T-shirt contests but by offering the most seductive plan on college affordability. Here’s how we can beat her at her own wild game…

Hillary knows Obama won the youth vote in two consecutive presidential elections by promising to erase the burden of college loans. She also knows the average college student graduates with $33,000 in debt. Finally, she knows independents and Republicans are offering young voters little by way of a counter offer.

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

19, Oct

By Katie Kieffer

20948559109_82157d2d71_z

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.

How Universal Pre-K Scams Your Child

01, Jun

By Katie Kieffer

17165622077_8351d66f9f_z

If you love your child, and I know you do, it’s time to say “bye bye” to the social pacifier that is free universal preschool.

I understand. It’s tempting. Whether you’re a destitute single mother or an affluent married father, you’re a parent. And parents often feel wiped out. Especially in this economy. Sure, Michelle Obama has christened this the era of a “huge recovery,” but she’s not in the trenches like you—juggling the stress of being a provider and a caregiver for a 4-year-old.

I Hope Hillary Fails, McCain Creaks and America Thrives

28, Apr

By Katie Kieffer


Chelsea Clinton is pregnant. Which means the odds of Hillary Clinton running for president have dropped down to 99%. Why bother with baby showers when you can be chilling with a hip grandfather like John McCain?

Bill Clinton told ABC News last September that his wife is more interested in being a “grandmother” than President of the United States. Apparently, Slick Willie was wrong. Instead of fretting over colors for the baby’s room, Hillary is flitting around the country to promote her brand and getting chummy with McNasty (McCain’s actual high school nickname).

Bill De Blasio Is Full Of Blarney

17, Mar

By Katie Kieffer


I wish my Irish eyes could be smilin’ on St. Patty’s Day. But New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has stoked my Irish temper. And that’s no blarney.

As an Irish lassie, I should be at the bar drinking green beer. Instead, I must be more austere. For Billy Boy is threatening to close New York’s charter schools by denying them the ability to “co-locate” or share real estate with public schools. Continue reading

Obama Offers Students $30,000+ to Snoop for NSA

18, Nov

By Katie Kieffer

NSA_SNOOP_SCHOOL

Obama is offering high school seniors $30,000 a year for college tuition, PLUS a job, housing, transportation and a galore of other benefits. Apparently, Obama is having a hard time finding youths willing to spy on their friends, so he’s upping the ante.

NSA.Gov currently has a “job” posted for young people who are desperate for a job, thanks to Obama’s lackluster recovery. Under “Careers” and “Opportunities for You,” the NSA has this posting with a bold red alert notice at the top: “Notice: Stokes Scholarship Application Deadline extended until 30 November 2013.” Continue reading

Why Homeschooling is Hipster

28, Jan

By Katie Kieffer

Homeschool family's day at the beach

Who knew? My parents are cool. Homeschooling is becoming hipster. Celebrity parents like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie proudly discuss their homeschooling lifestyle. But pioneers like my parents set the trend of educational freedom.

The plan was to send me to public school. My mother enjoyed her job as an R.N. and was not bored. She was simply a creative rebel. And my father encouraged her to pioneer—because he believed in freedom. Continue reading
