LOVE

Women are angry at Brett Kavanaugh. To them, I ask: do you know why you’re angry?

Suicide is on the rise in America, especially among our country’s girls. According to CDC data, suicide among teenage girls rose 70% in the past decade. This is a 40-year high. Across all genders and ages, suicide has increased 28% since 1999. Continue reading

The Rational Vote: Trump

27, Sep

By Katie Kieffer

Melania and Donald Trump

You and I know people who admit to being Democrats. I don’t know a single Democrat who will admit to believing in Democratic policies. No Democrat will ever say that they support: “unlimited power for politicians; murdering babies; declaring a man guilty of a crime without evidence; and stealing from the poor to aid criminals.”

May we conclude, then, that to be a Democrat in 2018 is to live in a fantasy world?

“I can’t believe the Democrats have gone so bad. And I used to be a Democrat,” my 87-year-old grandmother recently said. She sees a party that once stood for farmers and now stands for “democratic socialism”—a nice name for communism. Continue reading

Whose Life Is Yours?

31, Jan

By Katie Kieffer


On Saturday, I joined over 5,000 Texans who took to the streets of downtown Austin for the Texas Right to Life March. Marching feet remind us of battle, but for what are we really fighting when we say: “Right to Life?”

“Words matter,” a writing mentor of mine—who happened to be a pro-life attorney—once advised me. A core lesson that I gleaned from attending the 2018 Texas Right to Life March is that words—especially the words we use repeatedly; those words that roll off our tongue without thought—truly do matter. Continue reading

A Transgender Military

01, Aug

By Katie Kieffer


American law and military tradition do not discriminate against transgenders—and transgenders hurt themselves by believing otherwise.

How is this possible, one could ask, when our President is preventing transgenders from openly serving in the military? Continue reading

Death of a White Woman

26, Jul

By Katie Kieffer

Graveyard cross

“I can hear someone out back and I, I’m not sure if she’s having sex or being raped,” Justine Damond told a Minneapolis, MN police dispatcher at 11:27 p.m. on July 15. Eight minutes passed. No squad car. She re-dialed 911.

Minutes earlier, Damond had been awakened from sleep by a female’s chilling scream. The sound was particularly startling in a neighborhood known for low crime and peaceful streets. After calling the police, Damond called her fiancé and said the sound seemed to be coming from a neighbor’s garage. Continue reading

Pro-Choice: Tunnel Vision

Young women, new research finds, increasingly desire children—yet the pro-abortion movement still shrieks for subsidies. Ladies, strap on your stilettos: life is a cause worthy of digging in your heels.

The National Center for Health Statistics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that since 2002, 4% more women ages 15 to 44 say they anticipate bearing a child in their lifetime. A 4% increase is very significant considering that modern American women are inundated with pressures to “prevent” or “end” pregnancy. Rarely do women hear pregnancy described more as a blessing than a disease. But despite such propaganda—often subsidized by our federal and state governments—more women want to someday become mothers. Continue reading

Will Texas Cave like North Carolina?

Let’s talk toilets—specifically, transgender-designated toilets in Texas.

Democrats are messing with Texas, pushing hard against SB 6, the Texas Privacy Act, which makes an individual’s biological sex the determining factor for accessing bathrooms, locker rooms and shower rooms in the Lone Star State. Continue reading

Why Isn’t Hillary Clinton in Jail?

03, Apr

By Katie Kieffer


She feels safe enough to “come out of the woods,” exactly the time for a Trump administration special prosecutor to launch a broadside.

Mentally strong people don’t need five months to overcome setbacks. Thomas Edison famously said: “I have not failed 10,000 times. … I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work.” Instead of dwelling on setbacks, true leaders are resilient and persistent. Their passion for their mission—or goal—is independent of external circumstances. Continue reading

Phantom of the Election

31, Oct

Phantom Hillary. Artwork copyright Amie Kieffer 2016. All rights reserved.

Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s worldwide hit musical, is often heard at Donald Trump’s rallies—an omen of the surprise that American voters are quietly planning for Hillary Clinton.

Halloween is a fitting day to discuss haunts—so today I will explain why, even if you won’t vote for Trump, you should never vote for Clinton. She is an antihero who employs similar tactics to Webber’s villain in Phantom of the Opera. Clinton is a less sympathetic villain than the Phantom—but the analogy still holds. (Alert: mild spoilers will follow.) Continue reading

True Crimes vs. Gossip

17, Oct

By Katie Kieffer

Hillary Clinton

WikiLeaks released a cache of hard evidence of Hillary Clinton’s criminal mindset and public deception—yet all we hear is baseless gossip about “Trump’s women.” Let’s be real: WikiLeaks findings and the story of Kathy Shelton impugn Hillary’s ability to serve as president.

“Trump is a groping octopus!” is the message you’ve heard from media networks. Nearly every day, a new woman claims Trump managed the impossible feat of groping her like an “octopus” in a public place—like a New York night club while she was sitting with friends, or on an airplane where she was surrounded by stewardesses and passengers.
