The Woke Chokehold

04, Aug

By Katie Kieffer


We can ban police chokeholds in all 50 states—but the pervasive chokehold in America today is the “woke chokehold.” A majority of Americans feel frozen by fear—and are metaphorically choking—overwhelmed by a sense of powerlessness. 62 percent of Americans are afraid to speak their minds, according to a new CATO poll.

America’s largest police departments—Los Angeles in 1982, New York in 1993, Chicago in 2012, and Minneapolis in 2020— have banned the use of chokeholds by officers. Crime, however, is soaring in these cities. For example, even as the radical Minneapolis City Council works to eliminate police, robberies are up 37%. Continue reading

Courage to Hope

08, Jul

By Katie Kieffer


“A light from the shadows shall spring,” J. R. R. Tolkien wrote in The Fellowship of the Ring. Hope is a dominant theme in Tolkien’s famous fantasy. Despair threatens to grip each of us in these turbulent times. Thankfully, there are many reasons to avert despair—and run into the arms of Hope: Continue reading

Open (Save) America Now

22, Apr

By Katie Kieffer

"Open" sign

Our best chance at saving America is to open America. Now.

Certainly, states like New York and New Jersey must open at a slower pace than Minnesota and Iowa. But we must ground all decisions in reason and science—or politicians inebriated by power will gain more dominance by peddling fear. Continue reading

Wake Up-Mitch and Paul!

21, Aug

By Katie Kieffer

Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan

Waiter! Bring ice water! We need to wake up our lethargic congressional leaders, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Paul Ryan. Because when they snooze, America loses.

How do these two knuckleheads keep getting elected? It might be better if we had elected two La-Z-Boy armchairs to office. Neutrality is better than betrayal. Continue reading

End the Income Tax

24, Apr

By Katie Kieffer

taxes

Tell President Trump to ask Congress to end the federal income tax so that you and I can reach our full potential for wealth.

This weekend, President Trump tweeted that a: “Big TAX REFORM AND TAX REDUCTION will be announced [on] Wednesday.” This is great news. However, as we go through the process of improving the tax code, we must encourage our politicians to do two things: Continue reading

Welfare or Prosperity? Your Choice

27, Mar

By Katie Kieffer


Do you want to be wealthy? Do you also want to end poverty, hunger, and suffering among your neighbors? Abandon your mental roadblocks to wealth.

“I don’t want the help to stop,” 28-year-old single mother of four Tiffane Garza says as tears stream down her cheeks. She feels she would be lost without the $54 million in federal and local aid injected to her San Antonio East Side neighborhood over the past five years via an “anti-poverty” welfare program.

Data, however, paints a different picture: $54 million in government aid may actually have set the tiny, 3.5-square-mile neighborhood back. Continue reading

Trump is Right on Sweden

06, Mar

By Katie Kieffer


Sweden is drafting women into the military and endorsing “sex breaks” but, President Trump is right: Sweden has an immigration crisis and it is too late for even extreme measures.

Political correctness is crippling. We must begin telling the truth about why Sweden is struggling to replace its population; to maintain its culture; to create jobs; and to decrease violence. Continue reading

Obama’s Fake Legacy: Progress in the Black Community

16, Jan

By Katie Kieffer


“Snake-oil salesman” is the stinging label Princeton’s African-American studies chair, Eddie S. Glaude Jr.—who happens to be black—gives President Obama as he leaves the White House. Because Obama betrayed blacks.

Millions of white men and women voted for Barack Obama, a biracial president, in hopes that he would unite our country. Millions of black men and women voted for Obama hoping he would help them forsake disparate levels of poverty; teen pregnancy; single motherhood; absent fatherhood; and violent crime. Whites’ and blacks’ hopes were historic. Continue reading

#MyPresident  

14, Nov

By Katie Kieffer

Donald Trump

Donald Trump is my president—and street protesters shouting “Not My President!” do not represent how most young Americans feel about our 45th President.

Democrats counted on young swing voters—Millennials—to get out the vote for Hillary Clinton. Big mistake. At the same time, many Republican Party leaders are resting on their laurels—talking presumptively about Trump’s “eight year” term. Big mistake. Continue reading

A Young Millennial Woman For Trump

10, Oct

By Katie Kieffer

Female voters

As a young woman, I will vote for Donald J. Trump for president because he and his wife Melania have proven themselves presidential in ways Hillary and Bill Clinton failed.

First things first: a vote for Donald Trump is a vote against Hillary. You need not personally admire Trump in order to consider him the best option for president in 2016, and thus to vote your conscience. Continue reading
