Phantom of the Election

31, Oct

Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s worldwide hit musical, is often heard at Donald Trump’s rallies—an omen of the surprise that American voters are quietly planning for Hillary Clinton.

Halloween is a fitting day to discuss haunts—so today I will explain why, even if you won’t vote for Trump, you should never vote for Clinton. She is an antihero who employs similar tactics to Webber’s villain in Phantom of the Opera. Clinton is a less sympathetic villain than the Phantom—but the analogy still holds. (Alert: mild spoilers will follow.) Continue reading

True Crimes vs. Gossip

17, Oct

By Katie Kieffer

Hillary Clinton

WikiLeaks released a cache of hard evidence of Hillary Clinton’s criminal mindset and public deception—yet all we hear is baseless gossip about “Trump’s women.” Let’s be real: WikiLeaks findings and the story of Kathy Shelton impugn Hillary’s ability to serve as president.

“Trump is a groping octopus!” is the message you’ve heard from media networks. Nearly every day, a new woman claims Trump managed the impossible feat of groping her like an “octopus” in a public place—like a New York night club while she was sitting with friends, or on an airplane where she was surrounded by stewardesses and passengers.

New Thugs on the Block

08, Aug

By Katie Kieffer

New Kids on the Block was an American boy band that rocked the charts in the late 80s and early 90s with songs like “Step by Step.” Today, local politicians are stepping—quickly and quietly—to power and affluence as you and I focus on the Trump-Clinton presidential race, and forget the politics on our own block.

Most Americans mistakenly ignore local politics despite the fact that we as voters have far more influence on our own block than on Pennsylvania Avenue. Today, I’ll share several shocking stories of “New Thugs on the Block”—local politicians taking advantage of their constituents. 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

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

3 Big “Republicans” Helping Hillary

13, Mar

By Katie Kieffer

Hillary_Clinton

Three prominent Republican men are using their influence to help Hillary win in 2016, and they deserve our shaming. Far more traitors than these three foxes are hiding behind the wall of anonymity. But these three are particularly powerful and set the tone for others.

“Listen, there are Republicans in Washington who are privately saying that [they would vote for Hillary]. Maybe some don’t publicly say it,” Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier told TheWrap last week. Continue reading

Cisco Kid-Pancho (Cruz-Rubio)

07, Mar

By Katie Kieffer


Choose adventure! Choose romance! Choose the Robin Hood of Washington: “Cisco Kid” Ted Cruz and his ideal sidekick “Pancho” Marco Rubio! My parents grew up watching two heroic Hispanic partners – The Cisco Kid and Pancho – fight crime in the hit Western, The Cisco Kid. My generation should encourage Rubio to join Cruz so this dynamic duo can beat Donald Trump – and then Hillary Clinton – and finally… win the White House!

Today I’ll make the case for Rubio to join Cruz. For Rubio supporters, this is Rubio’s best opportunity to influence this election. For those who want a non-Trump candidate to beat Hillary—without alienating Trump voters—a Cruz-Rubio ticket is also your best bet. Continue reading

Carson: Now He’s A Politician

08, Feb

By Katie Kieffer

Dr. Ben Carson

Politics is a full-contact sport, but it’s not OK to hit below the belt. Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio spent last week blaming frontrunner Sen. Ted Cruz for a problem that originated from Team Carson’s own disorganization—even after media records and Iowa exit poll data cleared Cruz. Before you vote in your primary, you deserve the truth.

“You don’t have to be a politician to tell the truth,” Carson quipped in a recent debate. No, you don’t. So let’s start telling the truth. Unless you’re now a politician. Continue reading

Strikeout! RNC Won’t Play Ball

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

If U.S. drone policy weren’t so treacherous, it would be a comedy on par with the hit movie Dumb and Dumber. Instead, U.S. drone policy is just plain dumb.

Today, I’ll walk through the most inane aspects of our drone policy so you can take action before you’re awakened from sunbathing on your patio by the buzzing of a drone snapping your picture overhead. Continue reading
