  • Greenwald: What ‘Deep State’ Is Doing To Trump Is ‘A Prescription For Destroying Democracy’

    Townhall ^ | February 21, 2017 | By Matt Vespa
    The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald is no conservative, but he’s also not someone to give fellow liberals and progressives a pass over their actions that he feels threatens democracy and transparency in government. For starters, he found it interesting that liberals all of a sudden think that leaks are awesome since they’re making it harder for the Trump White House to govern. Cortney wrote about this hypocrisy, where Greenwald said on CNN’s Reliable Sources how the Obama administration declared war on the press first, that more leakers were prosecuted under the 1917 Espionage Act under Obama than all previous administrations combined,...

    The State Senate of Tennessee has laid the legislative groundwork for something that hasn't been done in the United States of America since the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia. With a vote of 27-3, the Tennessee Senate has voted to call a "convention of the states" in order to draft and pass an amendment to the Constitution that would require balanced budgets to be passed every year. For those who are little fuzzy on their high school U.S. history knowledge, the Tennessean explains that the U.S. Constitution can be amended in two ways. The first would require a two-thirds...

    Hollywood stars wanting to remove their ages from IMDb will have to wait until the website resolves its legal battle with the state of California after a federal judge on Wednesday granted an injunction staying enforcement of a new law that would force the site to take down that information upon request. The law is meant to prevent age discrimination in a youth-obsessed industry, but it has been widely criticized as a restraint on free speech. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria unequivocally shared that concern in an opinion filed Wednesday. "[I]t's difficult to imagine how AB 1687 could not violate...

    According to the government’s thinking, not only will it give Muslim migrants work, the hope is that automotive companies like Volvo will use the camels in their advertisements in Sweden. Marketing genius, eh? The government thinks that tourists might come to Sweden to “pet the camels” and that there “will be fashion shows.” “Camel products will be sold.” I kid you not. And selling of camel milk which “is said to help autism,” which is completely untrue. Camel milk does not cure autism.

    A Dutch security official meant to protect a far-right politician has been arrested on suspicion of leaking his location to a Moroccan criminal gang. Dutch populist Geert Wilders-who called some Moroccans "Scum" last week-told Prime Minister Mark Rutte that the alleged breach was "unacceptable". Police said the man was of Moroccan descent but not a bodyguard. Opinion polls suggest Mr. Wilders Freedom Party will emerge as the most popular in next month's election.....

    Jesse Hughes doesn't have nightmares anymore. He sleeps peacefully through the night, curled up in his bed. It's the waking hours that are hard, as memories of Paris return with a jolt from a random smell or image on the street, taking him back to that night of violence and fear. More than a year has passed since heavily armed terrorists aligned with the Islamic State walked into the Paris theater Le Bataclan and shattered the lives of those gathered for an evening of seething rock & roll from Hughes and his band, Eagles of Death Metal. The band narrowly...

The New York Times and The Washington Post claim Rinkeby, the site of the riot, is economically depressed, but the entire situation is a blip on the radar. The Swedish media…well it depends on the outlet.Two other major Swedish outlets seem more interested in the fact the American press went nuts over the riots.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security unveiled plans on Tuesday to consider almost all illegal immigrants subject to deportation, and will seek to send many of them to Mexico if they entered the United States from there, regardless of nationality.

    Connecticut Post ^ | Wednesday, February 22, 2017 | Amanda Cuda
    The mosquito-borne Zika virus doesn’t only lead to birth defects, it could also lead to fertility problems in males. Well, in male mice, at least. A Yale University study found the virus reduced the size of testes — a condition known as testicular atrophy — in infected mice for up to 21 days. This can allow for sexual transmission of the virus and may impair male fertility. This builds on information that’s already known about how Zika affects sperm, said Ryuta Uraki, the study’s first author and a postdoctoral associate at the Yale School of Medicine. The team of researchers...

    Obama pulled out his veto pen 12 times during his presidency. Congress only overrode him once… In late 2016, Obama vetoed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA). The bill would allow 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in US courts. With only months left in office, Obama wasn’t worried about the political price of opposing the bill. It was worth protecting Saudi Arabia and the petrodollar system, which underpins the US dollar’s role as the world’s premier currency. Congress didn’t see it that way though. Those up for reelection couldn’t afford to side with Saudi Arabia over US...

    Here’s a fact for the media to chew on: The “deep state” is here. As outlined in Foreign Policy, the concept of the deep state is nothing new. But the Trump presidency may serve as the galvanizing force that links some of the formal established Democratic opposition forces, including MoveOn.org, government unions and Black Lives Matter with the informal deep-state cadre of disgruntled liberal bureaucrats, the hostile mainstream media and the usual suspects on the left. It’s a troubling phenomenon, with anti-Trump organizations and Democratic-aligned civil servants conspiring to actively work against the incumbent government. There might not be any...

It’s almost too progressive, it’s almost paralyzing,” she added on its “Going Underground” show. “I’m going to actually start campaigning for men who have been victims of being accused of rape when they haven’t actually done anything.”

In 2016, Sweden was still ranked as the world’s “ goodest “ country.[1]Unfortunately, being “good” in the Western world today seems to mean being suicidal.In just two generations, Sweden has become an increasingly dysfunctional and crime-ridden country. The main cause of this negative transformation is non-European mass immigration.I have been chronicling...

More than 500 people filled the seats at the Mariposa Fairgrounds in Mariposa. Those in attendance included McClintock's supporters and opponents. Many came carrying signs about the Affordable Care Act and planned to actively oppose McClintock's support of President Donald Trump, but supporters of McClintock were also loud. The room roared when McClintock was asked about Trump potentially withholding federal funds from California. "As far as sanctuary cities, I don't believe any jurisdiction should receive federal...

This shouldn’t be shocking — if you’re a pragmatist, not a polemicist. Point one: Trump has been hinting at amnestizing DREAMers for months. Usually that takes the form of gooey pronouncements about having a big heart and how “great people that are here that have done a good job … should be far less worried” about deportation than criminals. Lately, though, the White House has showed its hand more clearly...

He said that immigration must be subject to reasonable controls, which would “take into account not only the well-being of the afflicted, but we also necessarily protect the population of the host countries.” Archbishop Stanislaw Zvolensky of Bratislava added a special concern about the...

    RNS) The vitriol of the president’s supporters at a Trump rally has moved a Florida pastor to write a much-shared Facebook post about the mockery of religion he believed he witnessed. “I have been in places and experiences before where demonic activity was palpable,” wrote the Rev. Joel Tooley, lead pastor of Melbourne First Church of the Nazarene. The pastor said he felt the “power of the Holy Spirit of God” protecting him and his daughter as he sought to shield protesters from angry Trump fans. Tooley had brought his 11-year-old to the rally Saturday (Feb. 18) in Melbourne, he...

They offer comfortable messages and a false sense of peace, or they encourage very odd behavior. Many mislead with rules and regulations as found in 1 Timothy 4:2-3—“speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their...
