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

War Stories for Memorial Day Week

30, May

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

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

Millennials Know: Benghazi She Wrote

04, Apr

By Katie Kieffer

Hillary Clinton

Clickety-click-click, went Hillary Clinton’s keyboard on the evening of Sept. 11, 2012 as she wrote to her daughter Chelsea:

“Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group: The Ambassador, whom I handpicked and a young communications officer on temporary duty w [sic] a wife and two young children. Very hard day and I fear more of the same tomorrow.

Millennials are turning away from Clinton as her email-Benghazi scandal unfolds. Here’s why. Continue reading

Apple Is On Your Side

22, Feb

By Katie Kieffer

Steve Jobs

Obama’s order for Apple to let him hack your iPhone is not about fighting terror—it’s about iPhone dominion. You deserve to know how an attack on Apple’s encryption technology threatens your safety. 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

China & Friends Are Watching

04, Jan

By Katie Kieffer


This ain’t George Orwell fiction. It’s real life, baby. You’re being watched and your identity is in peril. Beware of Chinese spies.

When my grandmother was 29 years old, an author named George Orwell published the Hunger Games of 1949. In his dystopian novel titled 1984 Orwell imagines a futuristic society ruled by a dictatorship. In order to maintain a tight grip on power, the ruling elites engage in total surveillance of the citizenry. The mantra repeated throughout the novel is: “Big Brother is Watching You.” Continue reading

Don’t Let Hillary Draft Your Daughter

For over 40 years, Hillary Clinton has been pushing to put women in combat and now she’s close to succeeding—whether women like it or not.

Your daughter or granddaughter could soon be compelled to register with the Selective Service at the age of 18 alongside all American males. Today, I’ll share what you need to know to confront Hillary and Obama’s unconstitutional and unscientific approach to fighting the phony War on Women and the real War on ISIS. 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

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
