    Happy Australia Day to our readers Down Under. The future shows up so fast in Oz that it's already Post-Australia Day in Australia, but the national holiday takes longer to work its way around to my neck of the woods, and the great merit of our tardy overseas jubilations is that they don't seem to be afflicted by the paroxysms of self-loathing, virtue-signaling and guilt-tripping with which the Aussie media now observe the occasion (which may be why my old chum Julie Bishop is celebrating the day from the safe distance of Earl's Court). Anyway, this is the first Australia...

    Kobe is dead? Who? Oh yeah, he was really good at bouncing a ball & putting it in a hoop, right? I must have the right guy, who else but a celebrity of such monumental importance would get such press. Well, we can be sure it’s not a homeless vet. Who one day, just a normal kid, is driving to work trying to make a buck. Dreaming of a future desired and next Friday night that never happen. The girl with the bluest eyes he’ll never see again. Then thrown into the jungle half way across the world where the...

    CNN reporter Joe Lockhart "broke a story" he at first claimed to be based on a conversation he said he overheard between two GOP senators. He alleged that the senators were dazzled by the "irrefutable arguments" of House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif) that supposedly "left the entire Republican Party in deep s**t." Later Lockhart admitted he made up the story, but still vouched for its "veracity, because we all know what the GOP scum are thinking." CNN president Jeff Zucker defended Lockharts's methods saying, "when the target isn't forthcoming about what he's really thinking we expect our news...

    Muslim sex grooming gangs, like drugs or prostitution, are too widespread to be enforced out of existence because, like college students and pot, the culture doesn’t accept that they are wrong. The police did nothing because these were not isolated crimes by criminals, but clashes of morals and values between two communities, one of which does not believe that child rape is wrong because its sacred texts tell it that Mohammed married Aisha and consummated his marriage when she was 9. There are nearly 2 million child marriages in Pakistan. The notion that a woman’s consent to sexual relations matters...

    Restrictions that allow a significant number of people to move about, either with official approval or unsanctioned “black market” activity, cannot stop the spread of contagious diseases. Like everyone else, I’ve been reading the mainstream media reports on the Coronavirus epidemic. I haven’t found any information about the practicalities that immediately occur to me, such as: 1. When public transportation is halted and commerce grinds to a halt as people avoid public places and gatherings, thousands of employees no longer go to work. Who pays their wages while the city is locked down? The employers? Then who compensates the employers,...

    Clips tagged #Swamp WHAT? Cindy McCain on Jeffrey Epstein: 'We all knew what he was doing' Appearing earlier in January at an event on human trafficking, Cindy McCain, widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said that everyone was aware of deceased pedophile Jeffrey’s Epstein’s alleged sex crimes, and she criticized law enforcement for waiting so long to arrest him.

    It is a propensity of human nature to be much more interested in the bad news than the good. Hence news media seemed to almost delight in the shock of Australia 'burning'. There were many phenomenal pictures, hysterical headlines and apocalyptic analyses.In recent days, though, there has been some welcome good news and yet, to a large extent, this is buried away in mid-page columns, if reported at all. I guess 'Australia being blessed by rain', is not as dramatic as 'Australia burning in hell'. Many fires are still ongoing but there have been some remarkable stories and pictures of...

    The Virginia Department of Health is investigating three possible cases of the novel coronavirus. The three patients, two in central Virginia and one in Northern Virginia, meet the clinical and epidemiologic criteria for the virus that's prompted China to put millions under quarantine, the Virginia Department of Health said Sunday. The health department has not released more specific information about where the patients live, work or have traveled.

    It may be difficult to believe in this enlightened age but there was a time not so long ago when the National Review was the intellectual heart of America's conservative movement. Its writers were sharp, gifted and irreverent. Their appearances on Fox News and other TV outlets made them rock stars. All that ended on January 22, 2016, when the magazine posted online its "Against Trump" issue. Once again, the editors proudly chose to stand athwart history rather than make it. They chose to lose with what they consider honor rather than win. 22 writers signed on, each penning...

    Democrats are really gonna do this, huh?I’m imagining Barack Obama looking at these new polling numbers and contemplating his legacy: A wipeout of Democrats in federal and state races by 2016, the election of a Republican president whom O himself allegedly describes as a “fascist,” and the increasing likelihood that his own party will choose an out-and-out socialist as its next nominee. In time, the Obama/Romney contest of 2012 may come to be seen as the last non-“European” election America had for many years. The well-respected NYT/Siena poll finds that everything’s coming up Bernie in Iowa:Elizabeth Warren’s loss is...

    "I pray that . . . you may know . . . what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints" (Eph. 1:18). How you perceive your spiritual resources dictates how you live. Throughout Ephesians 1 Paul is clearly struck with the magnificence of our inheritance in Christ. Here he prays that we will know the riches of its glory. Some commentators see "His inheritance" as a reference to believers, who are God's inheritance or special possession (v. 14). That view stresses the value God places on us as believers, as demonstrated in Christ's death, the...

    West Jordan • Three-term Republican state legislator Kim Coleman officially announced Saturday morning that she’s running for the 4th Congressional District, hoping to unseat Ben McAdams — who is currently the only Utah Democrat in Congress. In announcing her campaign, Coleman came out critical of McAdams’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump and aligned herself as someone who is a full-fledged Trump supporter. Those who came to her West Jordan campaign headquarters on Saturday morning were greeted with a full-size cardboard cutout of Trump posing with two thumbs up, donning a cap that read “Kim cares.” *** Coleman accused Democrats...
  • Radical San Francisco DA Drops Charges Against Man Who Attacked Cops

    Newly-installed San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin has dropped charges against a man whom police officers shot several times last month after he allegedly struck one of them with a glass vodka bottle, ran away, then attacked again. Rank-and-file officers are reportedly furious, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Boudin, as Breitbart News and others have reported, is the son of two activists in the Weather Underground, which the FBI calls a domestic terrorist organization, who were getaway drivers in a 1981 armored car heist that led to the deaths of two police officers and a guard, the UK Guardian...
  • Rep. Ratcliffe Explains Why One Transcript Is Missing From the Impeachment Trial [Schiff withheld exculpatory evidence]

    While presenting the Democrats' case for impeachment on the Senate floor, lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) kept referencing 17 witnesses who testified during the House impeachment inquiry. But there were 18 of them. Schiff and the Democrats are refusing to release the testimony of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, and according to Republicans who were present during Atkinson's closed-door testimony, the reason the transcript hasn't been released is because it proves both the whistleblower and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff did not tell the truth about their contact with each other. Fox News' Maria Bartiromo interviewed Rep. John...
  • AOC Campaigns In Iowa For Sanders, Doesn’t Mention His Name

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sure has an odd way of campaigning for Bernie Sanders. She doesn’t mention his name. Last October, Bernie scored the coveted AOC endorsement. What could be better than a young socialist with a huge following to endorse an old socialist who captured the imagination of the socialist wing of the Democrat Party in 2016? AOC, after all, volunteered for the Sanders campaign back then. She has a history with him. Last November he announced that she will fill-in for him on the campaign trail while he is doing his day job in the Senate during the impeachment...
