by Bishop E.W. Jackson America is in the midst of an ideological civil war. The division is deep and wide and the refugee problem is the latest iteration of the chasm.

Guest editorial: Thanks a bunch, Barack Obama

by Tim Griffith At last, January 20, 2017 has come and gone and so has “President” Obama. I can’t believe how good it feels. I hope you’re smiling as much reading this as I am writing it. The “occupier” of the Oval Office spent his last weeks pardoning hardened drug offenders, spies, traitors, molesters. What other […]

Guest editorial: Tom Garrett, the better choice for Congress

by: Lawrence Gaughan When I challenged him in 2014, our retiring congressional representative, Robert Hurt, often said, “The Fifth District seat belongs to no one individual, it is the people’s seat.” I always admired Mr. Hurt for his sentiment. As her predecessor in an effort to win the 5th District seat, I initially offered my […]

Guest editorial: The Democrat party has destroyed the black community

by EW Jackson America is in crisis. For the urban poor, the crisis is a national emergency. Last month I attended the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Guest editorial: Martha Boneta sues PEC over fraudulent claim

by Kevin Mooney No historical evidence locates Confederate Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson on what is now Liberty Farm in Fauquier County, Virginia, on the evening of July 18, 1861, three days before the First Battle of Bull Run.
