By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio “I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country.” - Ilhan Oman's words in a February 2018 interview with Al-Jazeera Politicians words many times do come back to haunt and rightfully so, but it's how the media twists those words that more times than not comes into question. If a politician is a Republ...

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio Hating both America and the American flag seems to be the “in thing” to do in today's heated political climate. And that hate seems to cross not only the racial barrier but the cultural, age, and political barrier as well, although Democrats far outnumber Republicans in that critical political area. And while a small subsection of white America truly does hate this country for not being so far to the right t...

By: Diane Sori / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio “If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.” - President Trump's recent words regarding “the Squad” Let me start by saying that Reps. Alexandria Ocassio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley...commonly referred to as “the Squad”...in my opinion....

So let me get this straight. It's bad if a company can decide what to include in its health care plan, but it is good if a government bureaucrat decides. What if that government bureaucrat is pro life? Are government mandates only good when they support your values? Maybe to be fair to people of all values we should let businesses decide for themselves which health plans work best for them and their employees. Oh, wait a minute...

When I was ten years old a friend and I wanted to hike through a local forest and up to the top of a hill. It seemed like a simple enough idea, but my friend’s mother was always a little over protective, so when he asked permission we crossed our fingers and held our breath. After listening to our pitch, and seeing the excitement in our eyes his mother finally relented. “Okay, you can go,” she said. “But if you come across an animal or get into poison oak I won’t be there to help.” “YES!” I...

By: Diane Sori and Craig Andresen / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio Fifty years ago the timeline was impossible, the task nearly beyond comprehension, and the men who made history were extraordinary. In a way, I feel sorry for anyone who is 50 years of age or younger. Sure, they can read about it or talk to folks who are even just slightly older than that about it, but they didn’t experience it. And it was an experience those of us who were young at the time, barely old eno...

David Epstein’s recently published book, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World (New York: Riverhead Books, 2019), provides an important corrective to Malcolm Gladwell’s 2008 book, Outliers: The Story of Success. Outliers argued that the road to great success begins with early commitment to a specialization and 10,000 hours of practice in it. While author Epstein does not come out altogether against specialization, he gives numerous examples from sports, business, science, and the...

Most of the world’s population doesn’t realize that the work of Danish climate scientist Henrik Svensmark and his collaborators has inaugurated a revolution in climate science that is as consequential and history-making as the plate tectonics revolution in geology. The reason most people don’t know that this revolution has taken place is that it contradicts global elites’ preferred but spurious theory that human-caused CO2 is the principal driver of climate change and global warming. https...

There’s a debate underway in Washington as to whether the Trump administration is provoking a new Cold War with China and whether this is a good idea. One hundred China experts, many closely associated with the Democratic Party, think that the administration is indeed doing so and that this is a bad idea. But President Trump didn't provoke this new Cold War -- China did, and its present leadership is pursuing a drive for imperial-totalitarian conquest that dates back to the 3rd century B.C. Qin ...

By: Diane Sori and Craig Andresen / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” - the all-important Second Amendment to the United States Constitution Recently, so-called “private militias”* have become a hot-button issue of contention for those who simply do not understand the true nature of militias and why they are desperately needed in t...

Defenders of the right to bear arms vigorously observe that the Second Amendment is the constitutional provision that ensures the ongoing viability of those freedoms guaranteed by the First deemed by many to be of a more noble or loftier character. Those with their vision clouded with aspirations of how they would like the world to be rather than how it actually is often snidely respond that a level of moral awareness has been reached where the use of force or even the insinuation of an appeal t...

You either want the humanitarian aid, the $4.6 billion to go and help, or you want the photo-op." - White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway on AOC's recent visit to the southern border As the political battle at our southern border continues to heat up, drama queen extraordinaire, Rep.
