White Democratic Senator smears Coney Barrett with the ‘R’ word

By Tom Quiner | October 27, 2020

By Tom Quiner Amy Coney Barrett believes in originalism when it comes to deciding cases before the Supreme Court. In other words, she decides cases based on what the law says and what the words meant when the law was written. Democratic Senator Ed Markey, suggests her entire approach is racist, which means he thinks she is a racist. Here is what Markey said: “Originalism is racist. Originalism is sexist. Originalism is homophobic. Originalism is just a fancy word for discrimination.” Republican Senator Mike Lee fired back: “Of all the irresponsible and inflammatory statements I’ve heard over the last few…

The Coney vote reveals a gash in our history

By Tom Quiner | October 27, 2020

By Iowans For LIFE Something happened halfway between Herbert Hoover’s presidency and Donald Trump’s that scarred our nation. To this day, it is the elephant in the voting booth. The wound manifests itself in a variety of ways, most recently on display in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. It was again on display during the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings and vote.  Ms. Barrett’s Catholicism led adversarial Senators to grill her aggressively in her last confirmation hearing. Like Barrett, Joe Biden identifies as a Roman Catholic. He even acknowledges his Church’s position on life: “I’m prepared to accept that at…

Get over your love affair with affordable energy if Biden is elected

By Tom Quiner | October 23, 2020

By Tom Quiner “I never said I opposed fracking,” asserted Joe Biden in last night’s presidential debate. President Trump simply responded, “you said it on tape.” Indeed he has, repeatedly. Watch the video clip above. The clip reminds us that Joe Biden believes in nothing, having made whiplash-inducing flips and flops on a dizzying array of issues. If elected, there is no doubt that team Biden wants to degrade the fracking industry, whether it is an outright ban or death by regulation (see the coal industry). This matters to working class families, who enjoy affordable energy thanks to the oil…

The Trump success no one acknowledges

By Tom Quiner | October 21, 2020

By Tom Quiner What issue worries you the most? In 2015, the heart of Barack Obama’s final term, the third biggest issue that worried American voters was the possibility of future terrorist attacks on the U.S. According to a Gallup Poll, 51% of Americans feared Islamic terrorism. As of last month, in a different Gallup Poll, but one per cent of Americans considered terrorism our most pressing problem. Cause & Effect Let’s review the cause and effect of this remarkable development. In President Obama’s second term, Islamic terrorists launched 180 terrorist attacks around the world, including 8 on U.S. soil,…

Ten reasons I may vote Trump/Republican this November

By quinersdiner | September 25, 2020

By Thomas J. Maly 1. I have wonderful neighbors.  They are welcome in my home almost anytime.  However, I have this quaint notion that they should knock and not just come in without permission.  Seems to me our country should expect no less.  A precondition for meaningful immigration reform is a secure border for our country.  I may vote Trump/Republican. 2.  I like the idea that “sheepdogs, i.e. police, will respond when the “wolves” in the world attack we sheep. I may vote Trump/Republican. 3. It causes me great anguish as I see reports of so many being  killed by gunfire…

The myth of the single issue pro-life voter

By quinersdiner | September 17, 2020

“How can you vote for that man and that party?”

the daughter sobbed hysterically to her shellshocked parents.

“You’re nothing but a single issue pro-life voter. I can’t even talk with you right now!”

In a conversation between a group of pro-lifers, the scenario above was reported not once, not twice, but three times. Has anything like this happened to you?
