    A recent poll discovered that 44 percent of the population in this country no longer take pride in being Americans. 44 percent of the people living in the nation with more opportunity, more security, the land of overnight millionaires, the place where even the biggest dreams can come true, have decided that America is not still the greatest nation the world has ever known, but a place to be ashamed of, guilty of nation building, fighting ignoble wars and suppressing minorities. What has led us to this sorry state of affairs? How can people who have been blessed just to...

    Fred Hellerman, a singer, guitarist and songwriter and the last surviving member of the Weavers, the quartet that in the 1950s helped usher in the folk music revival, died on Thursday at his home in Weston, Conn. He was 89... With songs like “If I Had a Hammer,” “Goodnight Irene” and “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine,” the Weavers brought folk music to a mass audience, paving the way for singers like Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary, who galvanized a young, politically conscious audience in the 1960s. Mr. Hellerman’s mellow baritone, rock-steady guitar and songwriting talent made him...

    "World War III is well and truly underway," said Bill McKibben, founder of the climate activist group 350.org. "And we are losing." "We're used to war as metaphor: the war on poverty, the war on drugs, the war on cancer," he said in an op-ed published in this week's New Republic magazine. "But this is no metaphor. By most of the ways we measure wars, climate change is the real deal: Carbon and methane are seizing physical territory, sowing havoc and panic, racking up casualties and even destabilizing governments." […] McKibben also has been piling increased pressure on Republicans in...

    BY NOW it is clear that Merrick Garland, President Obama’s nomination to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Antonin Scalia’s death, is not going anywhere. But if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, Senate Republicans may make a desperate about-face during the lame-duck session to lock in the moderate Garland before the arrival of Clinton and a possibly more left-leaning candidate. By then, however, it will be too late. Sorry, Judge Garland, but what Clinton should do if she wins is make clear that her choice will be none other than Barack Obama, a former professor of constitutional law,...

    With the Democratic National Convention and an attendant influx of protesters a week away, the city is suggesting businesses bring in loose planters, take down flags, and secure commercial dumpsters "to avoid misappropriation by demonstrators." The city expects 35,000 to 50,000 protesters daily during the July 25-28 convention. Anticipated gathering spots include FDR Park, Marconi Plaza, Independence Mall, City Hall, and the Municipal Services Building. Marches are planned down Broad Street and Market Street. Simultaneously, Philadelphia is rolling out a literal multicolored carpet for visitors and delegates and hosting four days of live music along Broad Street. The Mural Arts...
  • RNC Protests Rage, but Anti-Trump Organizers Ask: Where Is Everyone? (Low turnout, very few arrests)

    Activists marched illegally down streets, fought with one another and defied a downtown tennis ball ban Tuesday during the second day of the Republican National Convention. But as the excitement unfolded, some activist leaders wondered where the crowds were. Cleveland has seen far smaller protests than those at other recent conventions, despite the nomination of Donald Trump eliciting a rage from progressives that rivals or exceeds their hatred of former President George W. Bush. In a further distinction, it has also seen very few activism-related arrests. “Look, I’ll say this: It’s not a good thing people aren’t here in a...

He believed so strongly in the idea of redistributing wealth from rich to poor. Yet even when it was clear his policies weren’t working and Venezuela was rapidly sliding into economic chaos, Chavez’s only solution was to double down and redistribute even MORE wealth....

    Seven years into Barack Obama’s presidency, the scales may slowly be falling from the eyes of The New York Times. Could the truth about America’s red diaper baby President be starting to emerge? In a story about papers of his reported father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., the Times said that President Obama has shown no interest in “the newly discovered documents, which included nearly two dozen of his father’s letters, his transcripts from the University of Hawaii and Harvard University, and references from professors, advisers and supporters.” The paper added, “Nearly three years later, as Mr. Obama celebrates his last...

Obama also called Senator Bernie Sanders, Earnest confirmed. “The President thanked Senator Sanders for energizing millions of Americans with his commitment to issues like fighting economic inequality and special interests’ influence on our politics,” he said. Earnest said that Obama will meet with Sanders...

I taught history and I never knew half of our nation’s past until I began to re-educate myself by learning from original source materials, rather than modern textbooks written by progressive Democrats with an agenda. Interestingly, Democrats have long ago erased these historic figures from our textbooks, only to offer deceitful propaganda and economic enticements in an effort to convince people, especially black Americans, that it’s the Democrats rather than Republicans who are the true saviors of civil liberties.

    Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders rails against the “billionaire class” and has called income inequality “the greatest moral issue of our time,” but the senator from Vermont is “not exactly a man of modest means,” according to an article written by Kerri Anne Renzulli for the TIME magazine website. However, “nothing about Bernie’s net worth devalues his progressive beliefs,” stated Peter Daou, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton who responded on the Blue Nation Review website to reports that Sanders and his wife, Jane, could retire with an “effective retirement nest egg” valued at “nearly $2 million.”

    Bernie Sanders got his start in political movement due to his older brother, Larry Sanders, who headed the Young Democrats at Brooklyn College. If you thought Bernie was a crazy radical, then you haven't met Larry, who moved on to the UK where he runs for parliament as a member of the Green Party. The Green Party is about as terrible as a political party can possibly get. Its only virtue is that unlike its German counterpart, it didn't come out for legalizing pedophilia. (It left that to Labourites like Harriet Harman.)

The president has relied on his executive powers to establish new trade and travel links with...

But a relative few were given a glimpse of another side of Ms. Lee: that of a witty, impish and loyal pen pal. The cartoonist Berkeley Breathed was one person who shared a correspondence with Ms. Lee. After her death on Friday at the age of 89, Mr. Breathed wrote on Facebook of the letters they had exchanged through the years. Later, he shared with The New York Times four letters he had received from Ms. Lee over 14 years, with...

It was the content I found to be not just troubling, but frightening. I've never in my life heard such unapologetic, full-throated socialism in American politics. Sanders is the real deal. He's so left-wing he practically makes Obama look like the chairman of the Republican National Committee. At least Obama felt compelled to lie about the true extent of his leftism.

The US move came as senior British government officials told The Telegraph of growing fears that “a new cold war” was now unfolding in Europe, with Russian meddling taking on a breadth, range and depth far greater than previously thought. “It really is a new Cold War out there,” the source said, “Right across the EU we are seeing alarming evidence of Russian...

    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. It's agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S. If allowed to continue, that agitation could devolve into anarchy and civil war. The BLM crowd appears to be spoiling for just such an outcome. Nevertheless, BLM appears to be exercising considerable leverage over the Democratic Party, in part by...

    The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on October 17, 1979. Our children’s education has depreciated considerably as evidenced by test scores and the quality of mis-educated youth in our country who can...

    For months, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has been promising a speech that would explain and make palatable what he calls "democratic socialism." The problem for Sanders is that during his entire political career, he has run for office as a "socialist" - never mind the addition of "democratic." Not that it makes a difference. A new poll out today shows Hillary Clinton ahead of Sanders by 25 points nationally. Sanders could call himself a reformed Druid and he'd still be buried. But Sanders is determined to make socialism mainstream. To that end, he traveled to Georgetown University to give a...

Devin Foley, the thoughtful President of Intellectual Takeout and Better Ed, explains Sanders is growing in popularity among young people because he gives voice to those who can’t find jobs, who see unfair disparities and who suffer from massive debt. Besides that, Foley says conservatives refuse to reach out to youth in ways that resonate or make sense of the fallen world to them, a world that once promised going to college...

    “The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was created in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties.” And “The work of the committee continued to decline in importance throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s until the committee itself was renamed the House Internal Security Committee in 1969, prefiguring its eventual abolition in 1975.” We all know of what many believed as overreach and showmanship by Joe McCarthy during the life of this committee. McCarthyism is the term born from that era, and a...

    Thom Hartmann, a paid agent of the Russian government’s main propaganda channel, Russia Today (RT) television, is strongly supporting career politician and socialist Bernie Sanders for U.S. president. “Bernie Sanders could be the next FDR,” he says. But it might be more accurate to say that Sanders could be another Alger Hiss, the Russian agent who served FDR as his top aide and helped create the United Nations. Before examining the curious history of “Bolshevik Bernie,” as analyst Trevor Loudon calls him, Hartmann’s service to the Kremlin is worth a look. Hartmann praises Sanders for trying “to get money out...

    Labor Secretary Thomas Perez is moving ahead with issuing a final regulatory proposal for financial advisers despite growing concerns from moderate Democrats and Republicans that it would hurt low-income Americans. Perez responded to Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) in a letter earlier this week after she and other lawmakers called on Department of Labor (DOL) officials and the administration to re-propose the controversial so-called "fiduciary standards," which would increase disclosure requirements for financial advisers. The business community is vehemently lobbying against the proposal, which failed in 2010, arguing it would raise consumer costs for Americans who need financial advice the most....

    After Senator Marco Rubio of Florida insisted at the Republican presidential debate that rape and incest victims should carry pregnancies to term, aides to Hillary Rodham Clinton could barely contain their delight at his unyielding stance, rushing to tell reporters at her headquarters that those remarks would hurt Mr. Rubio with female voters. When Donald J. Trump chose on Friday to stand by his slights against women during the debate, saying the Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly “behaved very badly” as a moderator — and then promoting a Twitter message calling her a “bimbo” — feminists were not the only...

    So how much do Democrats value basic transparency, accountability, and honesty in their presidential candidates? Not bloody much, if you go by the handy polls over at RealClearPolitics. The six national polls taken this January and February, before the email scandal first broke, averaged out to a whopping 43 percentage-point lead for Hillary Clinton. How about the next six, in March and April? Plus 50. The 11 polls in May and June, when Berniementum first started sweeping the country, came in at +48, and the most recent five in July stand at +41.

    Dan Rather is coming to your local movie theater. At least the story behind why he’s no longer at CBS is. In “Truth,” Robert Redford plays Rather. Cate Blanchett plays his CBS producer Mary Mapes.

    The worst thing about this class envy is that those who do the most to promote it are often those with the most money. But, apparently, so long as you condemn wealth disparity, it grants dispensation to the likes of the Clintons, the Obamas, Warren Buffet, George Clooney, Glyneth Paltrow, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner and all the other hypocrites who show up at Obama’s $35,000-a-plate fundraisers. As you may have noticed, they’re the same crowd who go around pretending that black voters, who actually vote at a higher rate than white people, are being disenfranchised in America, and who insist...

    Ben & Jerry’s newest flavor makes a mouthful of a statement about one of the biggest political agendas under the Obama administration – climate change. “Save Our Swirled” is a raspberry-based ice cream with marshmallow and fruity swirls, flecked with miniature dark-and-white-fudge ice cream cone bits. The blog Take Part reported the product hit store shelves on Wednesday, in conjunction with a company campaign against climate change.

    A Kansas furniture store owner is closing up shop and leaving town, but not before he tells other residents what he thinks about them. Bob Fyfe, the owner of Payless Furniture in Lawrence, has polarized the community by posting signs on a large truck in his store parking lot that attack the town. The main sign reads; 'Lawrence: Commie and Candy Ass Capitol [sic] of Kansas. Goodbye Obamaville.'

    Noting that he’s “perhaps the most progressive member of the United States Senate,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) described today how, as president, he would do socialism in America. “When we talk about Democratic socialism, I think it is important to realize that there are countries around the world, like Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, who have had social democratic governments on and off for many, many years. And we can learn a whole lot from some of those countries,” the 2016 Democratic presidential contender said on CBS this morning. “For example, the United States is the only major country on earth...
