Democrat wins in Nevada, Illinois threaten gun rights

By Natalia Castro The National Rifle Association gave notably less to candidates in the 2018 midterm elections than any other election in the last three years; still, NRA backed candidates won 106 races and lost just 33 .

Official time transparency should be made mandatory by Congress after Trump administration voluntary disclosures

By Natalia Castro Union employees are often also federal employees, but instead of working for the government, they use taxpayer funded time to fuel their union agenda, often making in excess of $100,000 a year . This agenda is often partisan and does more to hurt federal employees than protect them. President Trump took significant […]

Some people need to see socialism to believe it is bad

By Natalia Castro Seeing is believing. People around the country were baffled when exit polls showed Robert or Beto O’Rourke won more votes from native Texans than incumbent Senator Ted Cruz in the midterm elections. But this should not be a surprise, it should be a lesson […]


Midterms prove the left’s #MeToo was more about partisanship than protecting women

By Natalia Castro One of the real losers in this week’s midterms was not the right or the left — it was the #MeToo movement. This week’s midterms proved two things — that the Democrats only care about women when it is Republicans on the chopping block […]


No wall, no House, no surprise

By Natalia Castro Republicans would have loved to win the House last night, but unfortunately, they did not deserve it, as they lost at least 26 seats and more like 30 or so. After failing to solve our countries immigration problem time and time again, it should […]

‘Build the wall’ remains Republicans’ rallying call

By Natalia Castro Immigration debates dominated the 2016 election and two years later, the issue is equally as pertinent in Americans’ minds.

Is sexual violence in Minnesota okay when it’s a Democrat?

By Natalia Castro Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith are running to maintain their seats this November. While both are leading in the polls, their race has not been without controversy.

Trump must hold firm, let the legal immigration and asylum system work—and send the migrant caravan back

By Natalia Castro With just two weeks until Election Day, over 7,000 migrants from Central American countries are marching through North America to enter the U.S. illegally. What has been deemed the “migrant caravan” has been used by the left to place pressure on President Donald Trump to recede from […]


Treasury ‘resistance’ proves need for MERIT Act to fire the swamp

By Natalia Castro Employees at the Treasury Department are not just subverting the Trump Administration, they are actively building a media narrative against the President to further their own political ends. The indictment of Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards is further evidence of the “resistance” thriving within the […]


Races in Florida, Georgia portend future of Electoral College
