Apple Is On Your Side

22, Feb

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

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

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

Abortion: Separates Men From Boys, Cruz from Trump

01, Feb

By Katie Kieffer

Father and son.

Inconsistency on healthcare and abortion helped Mitt Romney lose in 2012, especially among young voters. Here’s what you need to know to elect a winner.

Contrary to popular opinion (among GOP elites)—but in-line with all the major research on Millennials—to win the White House in 2016, we must nominate a candidate who is strong and steady. Transparency and consistency are extremely important to Millennial voters, the majority of whom 2012 CNN exit polls show favored Mr. Consistent, Ron Paul, over all Republican candidates. 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

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

Obama’s Sights Set On Millennials

11, Jan

By Katie Kieffer


Cry me a river on cable TV, Mr. President. But do not set your sights on my generation’s natural right to self-defense.

Every generation of human beings has a natural right to self-defense. Reason tells us that we have a right to protect our private property and our first piece of private property is our body. Yet even more than my parents and grandparents—who certainly faced their own challenges—my Millennial peers face a historic threat to their right to self-defense. 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

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

21, Dec

By Katie Kieffer

Star Wars offers five priceless political lessons that the newest movie, The Force Awakens, reminds us to exercise. Grab your lightsaber and fear not: I’ll steer clear of spoilers as I explain how we can take back our American Dreams.

In Star Wars, as in politics, there is a “Force”—or power—that can be wielded for good or for evil. Jedis trained to use the Force for noble purposes, whereas the Sith exploited the Force for evil. Here’s how we can train ourselves—and our politicians—to use political power for good. Continue reading
