Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has chalked up some of the Republicans’ problems in Senate races to mediocre candidates. But is there something more going on?

Instead, the Pennsylvania Senate race, for example, has turned into a fight over crudité , despite Democrat nominee John Fetterman’s radical positions and questions about his post-stroke fitness , not […]
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today.

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
