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

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

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

Check Your Privilege, Obama

Check your privilege, President Obama. Specifically, your executive privilege.

If we time-traveled to the days of our first presidents—George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson—we would discover that they all used executive privilege. Here’s the catch: on average, these presidents invoked executive privilege less than once per year (0.79 times/year). Continue reading

How Hillary’s Embarrassing Emails Raise Your Taxes

14, Sep

By Katie Kieffer

3404390810_4490e8d8c3_z

You need to know how Hillary’s email scandal is taxing your bank account and your family’s security. On the surface, Hillary appears to have a political black eye. In reality, it’s we who are bearing her costs at the FBI; the State Department and in Congress. Let me explain…

“When voters were asked, ‘What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Hillary Clinton?’ words like ‘liar,’ ‘dishonest,’ and ‘untrustworthy,’ were at the top of the list,” ABC’s David Muir chided Clinton last week. Besides losing her media allies, Clinton’s poll numbers are tanking. Yet it’s hard to feel “even a smidgen” (to use President Obama’s metric system) of sympathy for Clinton when you and I are faring far worse than she. Continue reading

17 Grades for 17 Candidates: Anchor Babies

24, Aug

By Katie Kieffer


Only five GOP presidential candidates understand our Constitution and are serious about reforming our immigration system in a fair and equitable manner: Donald Trump; Sen. Ted Cruz; Sen. Rand Paul; Gov. Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum.

Last month it was the Confederate flag. This month, all the cool kids who never had a problem with the term “anchor baby” are feigning shock and disgust. Why? Because they worship at the shrine Hillarathena, goddess of political correctness. Continue reading

You Can Trust Planned Parenthood

20, Jul

By Katie Kieffer

I have a list of reasons why you can trust Planned Parenthood.

By now, you’ve probably seen the viral video starring Planned Parenthood executive Dr. Deborah Nucatola. In the undercover clip, made by the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Nucatola gushes about performing abortions in such a way so as to carefully and fatally “crush” fetuses while preserving specific body parts like “fetal livers” which are popular on Planned Parenthood’s secretive “menu” of harvesting options.
