Biden Meets the “Press”

Like a lot of Americans, I subscribe to Mike Huckabee’s newsletter.

The AR-15 Rifle: Myth & Reality

“Digital book burning” and Repression in the United Socialist States of America

Welcome to the United Socialist States of America where “digital book burning” and book banning are suddenly acceptable, where Dr. Seuss has been canceled, and where books that question “transgenderism,” the legitimacy of “critical race theory,” “cancel culture,” or the bogus 1619 project are censored and banned.
