~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Whether we realize it or not, we have all been part of a grand experiment. Never before have we had a national lockdown and mass quarantines of healthy people in response to a pandemic. Not during…Continue
On May 25th, one of the 10,000,000 arrests that US police officers make every year in the United States went horribly wrong. An unarmed man being arrested for the crime of trying to pass a…Continue
The coronavirus lockdown is seemingly down and out, as many Democrats in charge of big cities -- including several who once insisted on strict quarantine measures -- line up to champion the…Continue
