Soldiers Betraying Soldiers

By Katie Kieffer


Secret stories of soldiers stabbing their fellow soldiers in the back read like crime thrillers. Our bravest soldiers and veterans are increasingly the victims of abuse by other soldiers with more political clout.

President Obama boasts of his ability to “evolve” on gay marriage. He has also evolved on other issues, such as his level of respect for the military. That is, if regression is a form of evolution. Continue reading

Women 0-For-4 with Democrats

By Katie Kieffer


Ladies, Democrats fail you in four major ways. You’re 0-for-4 with DFL policies, so vote for politicians who will safeguard your health and freedom. Continue reading

5 Political Halloween Costumes

By Katie Kieffer


Halloween is four days before the midterms. Get out the vote with a costume that expresses your inner politico. Here are five fun political costume ideas that will spark a debate at your Halloween party—and remind your friends to vote for freedom.
1.) Naughty Czar

The CDC’s lack of transparency and competency in managing Ebola makes the classic “naughty nurse” costume off-limits. It seems thoughtless to dramatize the health care professions while an American nurse and doctor exert every effort to heal from Ebola. It is far more tactful—and provocative—to be a naughty czar. Continue reading

Troops Fight Obama’s Politically Correct War On Ebola

By Katie Kieffer


Two lawyers fight Ebola in the U.S. while our troops are forced to combat Ebola in West Africa. Americans may contract Ebola but rest assured: no one will sue the federal government.

Your president, a former constitutional law professor, is violating our brave troops’ natural rights in the name of political correctness. Bypassing Congress, Obama has ordered up to 4,000 troops to fight Ebola in West Africa and has named lawyer Ron Klain “Ebola Czar.” Continue reading

Janet Yellen Loves Greenbacks and Ham

By Katie Kieffer


Janet Yellen is no masseuse. Nor is she a pecuniary zeus. Her economic policies sting like grapefruit juice and sound as silly as Dr. Seuss.

My name is Uncle Sam. Uncle-Sam-I-am. I do not like quantitative easing. I call it greenbacks and ham. Continue reading

Jerry Brown To Women: “A Nod Means Undress Me”

By Katie Kieffer


California Governor Jerry Brown cares about college women. Which is why he is patronizing them.

It is vital that college women—who now face an epidemic of sexual assault on American universities—have access to defensive tools. Millennial women like Dartmouth College student Taylor Woolrich are specifically asking for concealed firearms to deter violent stalkers. But evidently it is more important for male politicians to boost their fragile egos by talking down to women than to humble themselves by listening to women. Continue reading

Get Thee To A Nunnery, Biden

By Katie Kieffer


To a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell, Joe Biden.

Our Democratic Vice President is a self-proclaimed Catholic. Yet unlike former President John F. Kennedy, also a Catholic Democrat, Joseph R. Biden consistently exploits his political power to control his church. JFK respected the separation of church and state. JRB embraces blurred lines. Continue reading

USPS: Where The Customer Is Always Last

By Katie Kieffer


Bang! Lee looked up from addressing a package while she waited in line for service at the post office. Despite a lobby packed with customers—without notice—a postal worker slammed down the service window gate and went to lunch, leaving Lee and the other patrons to fend for themselves.

The U.S. Postal Service excels at treating customers poorly. My friend Lee’s story is but one of many nightmares of churlish postal workers and deficient USPS customer service. Many government workers get away with behavior that would get them fired if they worked at a private company like McDonald’s or Apple. Continue reading

Why Farmers Need Keystone XL

By Katie Kieffer


It’s harvest time! But oil shipments out of the Bakken are causing dangerous and costly rail delays for farmers.

The oil boom in the Northern Plains is a boon to the U.S. economy, creating thousands of jobs and increasing our supply of American energy. With nearly 3 million Americans out of work, the Bakken is like a pool of cool water in an arid desert. Continue reading

Laugh On 9/11 With Joan Rivers

By Katie Kieffer


Joan Rivers crushed 9/11 terrorists by laughing. So should you.

If the doyenne of dark comedy were still alive, the Republican Party would win the 2016 presidential election by nominating Joan Rivers. First, because the GOP would be running an octogenarian grandmother against a slightly younger grandmother (Hillary Clinton) and Democrats could not accuse Republicans of attacking Clinton’s age, sex or grandmotherhood. Second, because Rivers had a self-depreciating sense of humor whereas Hillary has a mean streak (think Clinton’s dismissal of cookie-baking housewives or her “What difference does is make?!” screech). Third, Rivers would have been more adept at handling the fusillade of terrorism threatening America.

Sadly, Rivers passed away last week at the feisty and energetic age of 81. However, as we approach the anniversary of the 9/11/01 and 9/11/12 (Benghazi) attacks, let’s take a cue from Rivers’ healthy but unconventional approach to tragedy. Continue reading
