Check Your Privilege, Obama

09, Nov

By Katie Kieffer


Check your privilege, President Obama. Specifically, your executive privilege.

If we time-traveled to the days of our first presidents—George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson—we would discover that they all used executive privilege. Here’s the catch: on average, these presidents invoked executive privilege less than once per year (0.79 times/year). Continue reading

GOP Elite’s Secret Plan to Expel Donald Trump and Ben Carson

19, Oct

By Katie Kieffer


GOP elites are drawing on fine cigars while drawing up a secret plan to crush top-polling candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson.

Today I’ll let you in on a quiet movement within the upper echelons of the GOP to take down politically incorrect presidential candidates, especially Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson. Unless Common Core Crusader Jeb Bush is your guy—and I hope he’s not—you and I must expose this movement before it ends our vision for a people’s advocate in the White House in 2016.

How Hillary’s Embarrassing Emails Raise Your Taxes

14, Sep

By Katie Kieffer


You need to know how Hillary’s email scandal is taxing your bank account and your family’s security. On the surface, Hillary appears to have a political black eye. In reality, it’s we who are bearing her costs at the FBI; the State Department and in Congress. Let me explain…

“When voters were asked, ‘What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Hillary Clinton?’ words like ‘liar,’ ‘dishonest,’ and ‘untrustworthy,’ were at the top of the list,” ABC’s David Muir chided Clinton last week. Besides losing her media allies, Clinton’s poll numbers are tanking. Yet it’s hard to feel “even a smidgen” (to use President Obama’s metric system) of sympathy for Clinton when you and I are faring far worse than she. Continue reading

17 Grades for 17 Candidates: Anchor Babies

24, Aug

By Katie Kieffer


Only five GOP presidential candidates understand our Constitution and are serious about reforming our immigration system in a fair and equitable manner: Donald Trump; Sen. Ted Cruz; Sen. Rand Paul; Gov. Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum.

Last month it was the Confederate flag. This month, all the cool kids who never had a problem with the term “anchor baby” are feigning shock and disgust. Why? Because they worship at the shrine Hillarathena, goddess of political correctness. Continue reading

Brady Docked 4 Games? Bench Hillary 4 Years in Benghazi

03, Aug

By Katie Kieffer


The NFL upheld the 4-game suspension for Tom Brady; certainly we can bar Hillary Clinton from running for office for the next four years—four Americans died in Benghazi.

Better yet, perhaps she should be benched in Benghazi. After all, she sat in the comfort of her leather chair in the United States while Americans—working for her—choked and died amid fumes of smoke. Continue reading

Cuomo Gives “Consent” PowerPoint to Rapists

22, Jun

By Katie Kieffer


You need a girl’s consent, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tells rapists. If she says “yes,” it’s not rape—it’s “affirmative consent.”

“Affirmative consent” is pivotal to Cuomo’s new plan to stop college rape. His plan consists of giving a legislative PowerPoint to rapists that defines rape in crystal clear terms. Cuomo maintains that once rapists understand what rape is—ta da!—they will never rape again. Continue reading

Boys Want Father Figures, SEALs Deliver

19, Apr

By Katie Kieffer


Not every boy wants a pony, a truck or a puppy; but every boy wants and needs a father figure in his life. When a young boy loses his father during military service, the loss can be crushing. Had his father not volunteered to be one of the 1% of Americans who serve in uniform, he could have grown up with a male role model by his side to set an example of courage and to celebrate his achievements.

Let me tell you the story of Operation 300, a non-profit organization that helps children cope with the loss of a father and continues the legacy of the late SEAL Team 6 member and father of two, Aaron C. Vaughn. Continue reading

True Stories of Soldiers Left Behind

09, Mar

By Katie Kieffer


“No Man Left Behind” is an American adage of chivalry and solidarity that we do not always practice. Young men and women in military service risk their health and careers for the majority of us who never lift a finger in battle—unless it’s to control simulated snipers wielding digitized NA-45s in a computer game like Call of Duty.

Go stand before a mirror. Take a look at your hands; your feet; and your head. If you’re like me, you’re fortunate to have all ten digits and a brain that has never been riddled with trauma. Your body is free from shrapnel. We are very fortunate, while some of our brothers and sisters are not—and they need our help. Continue reading

No Room for Vets in the Inn

22, Dec

By Katie Kieffer


Homeless American veterans shiver in the bitter cold while illegal immigrants receive subsidized four-year degrees.

At midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold, Christ was born in a stable after his parents were turned away by every innkeeper. Joseph and Mary did not respond with entitlement: “If you don’t shelter us, then you’re racist.” Rather, they used their ingenuity to find an alternative birthplace for their son among friends—farm animals, shepherds, kings, and angels—beneath the light of an extraordinary star. Continue reading

Laugh On 9/11 With Joan Rivers

08, Sep

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
