For Democrats the solution to every.single.problem is simple: Infrastructure needs updating? Raise the gas tax. Some don’t have health insurance? Use someone else’s money to give it them. And why should women have to pay for birth control? Toss some taxpayer money at them too! The list goes on… Most recently, Democrats…

Much of the war against Israel is fought in the media and through deceptive “Non-Governmental Organizations” which issue endless distorted reports against Israel.
