By Calibre Press

20 years ago we witnessed a level of terror and murderous brutality never before seen on U.S. soil. We also witnessed an awe-inspiring level of courage, compassion, and selfless dedication to helping others. Neither will be forgotten. Not two decades later. Not 100 years from now. On this poignant anniversary we again honor and thank the police officers, firefighters, emergency medical personnel and other first responders, both living and d... Full Article »

By Scott Buhrmaster

If You Think So, You’re Out of Your Mind. A Christmas concert outside a Manhattan church this week ended in an encore of gunfire when a gunman with a lengthy criminal record, brandishing two semi-autos—one in each hand—and carrying a backpack with a can of gasoline, rope, wire, tape, knives and a Bible inside, began firing rounds, sending terrified concertgoers scrambling to get out of range or find some kind of cover.

Our murder suspect was a Middle Eastern immigrant.  He had... Full Article »

The president is in a bunker. National monuments are defaced. Dozens upon dozens of Secret Service personnel are wounded and injured. Cops have been shot all around the country. Some are dead. Citizens watch as their life’s work—their hearts and souls—are burned to the ground. People are being beaten by the hordes. Communities are in fear. Who is committing all of this violence, all this destruction, and spreading the f... Full Article »
