Democrats' Quest for Complete Control

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

One of the most disconcerting things to observe in present-day politics is Democrats' glee at the control they currently have over the branches of American government, and their giddy determination to use any means available by virtue of that control to obtain absolute power at both the federal and state levels.

President (King) Joe ...Read more

Is This What You Voted For?

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

I've noticed that the Joe Biden voters I know personally -- as well as those I have followed on social media for some time -- have grown remarkably quiet since Biden entered the White House. I'm not talking about professionally clueless Hollywood celebrities, Democratic Party operatives or the media (same thing), who lie daily as they provide ...Read more

Judeo-Christian Morality and Societal Health

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

Growing up, I rarely -- if ever -- heard anyone in authority discuss the relationship between Judeo-Christian concepts of morality and health. Instead, morals were cast as somewhat arbitrary rules that had to be followed to avoid being cast into Hell.

I can't speak to what may happen in the afterlife. But in my almost six decades on the planet,...Read more

Innovation Saves Lives

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

There was a testy Twitter exchange last week between Bernie Sanders, the socialist Democratic U.S. senator from Vermont, and eccentric billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

Sanders started by tweeting that Musk and Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos have more wealth than "the bottom 40% of people in this country," a fact Sanders chalked up to "...Read more

Sex, Lies and the Destruction of America

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

The political class, the big players in the entertainment industry and the media are all engaged in a massive, collaborative effort to destroy America. And they're doing it with sex and lies.

First, the sex.

Last September, I wrote a critique of those in the media defending "Cuties," an award-winning film on Netflix that featured prepubescent ...Read more

Royal Posturing

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

Oprah Winfrey's interview with Queen Elizabeth II's grandson Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and his American wife, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was a real insight into the couple, and what was revealed was unflattering to both. These two healthy, handsome and incredibly wealthy people, who enjoy a lavish lifestyle unknown to all but a tiny ...Read more

Form Over Substance

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

Listening to former President Donald Trump's speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference last weekend was a stark reminder of the differences between him and President Joe Biden. It was also a reminder of the differences between their respective supporters' priorities.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, the word most commonly ...Read more

Who Is Looking Out for America?

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

There was -- presumably -- a time in the history of this country when both major political parties could honestly state that the policies they advocated for and taxpayer dollars they spent were legitimately for the benefit of America and Americans.

No longer.

Congress' spending diarrhea and President Joe Biden's executive mandates make clear ...Read more

Time for GOP to Court Immigrant Voters

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

This is not going to be a popular opinion, but it is time for Republicans to stop demonizing illegal immigrants and begin recruiting them as voters.

President Joe Biden is determined to give amnesty to the immigrants here illegally now, and whether by executive order (at last count, Biden has signed 55 executive orders, proclamations and ...Read more

The 'Big Tent'? Republicans Didn't Build That

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio, complained in a recent interview with The Hill that she feels like a minority in her own party. Kaptur shared data showing that 19 of the 20 wealthiest congressional districts in the country are now represented by Democrats, and she quoted unnamed Democratic colleagues whose callous comments reflected a complete lack ...Read more

The American public has a right to information from sources other than "traditional" media

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

The American public deserves the truth -- from its politicians and from any and all media. This should be a noncontroversial statement. But it is controversial, apparently. Not only are we not being told the truth; we are being prevented from hearing the truth told to us by anyone who has it -- or is actively seeking it. We are...Read more

America grows sick on a diet of propaganda and political theater

From the Right / Laura Hollis /

There is a scene in Peter Jackson's film "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" when Bilbo Baggins and his dwarf companions stand at the entrance to Mirkwood Forest, through which they must travel to reach their destination. Once lush, green and verdant, Mirkwood has become infested with evil. Bilbo hesitates to enter, saying, "This forest feels ...Read more
