    Partisan political division and the resulting incivility has reached a low in America, with 67% believing that the nation is nearing civil war, according to a new national survey. “The majority of Americans believe that we are two-thirds of the way to being on the edge of civil war. That to me is a very pessimistic place,” said Mo Elleithee, the executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service. And worse, he said in announcing the results of the Institute’s Battleground Poll civility survey, the political division is likely to make the upcoming 2020 presidential race the...

    Acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, who provided key testimony to the Democrats’ controversial impeachment inquiry yesterday, has evidenced a close relationship with the Atlantic Council think tank, even writing Ukraine policy pieces with the organization’s director and analysis articles published by the Council. The Atlantic Council is funded by and works in partnership with Burisma, the natural gas company at the center of allegations regarding Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. In addition to a direct relationship with the Atlantic Council, Taylor for the last nine years also served as a senior adviser to the U.S.-Ukraine Business...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn't know how the First Amendment works. In a congressional hearing on Wednesday, the New York representative berated Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg about his company's refusal to silence her political opponents and his company's ties to white supremacists. Zuckerberg was there to answer questions about Facebook's proposed cryptocurrency, but Ocasio-Cortez was much more concerned about Republicans being allowed to run political ads on his platform. Facebook recently defended its decision not to remove an ad from the Trump campaign simply because it stated facts the Biden campaign didn't want people knowing about. The Democrats have decided not to...

    “Time to accept failure”: Republicans aren’t just losing. They’re not even playing the game. OCT 23, 2019 5:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER A few weeks ago I spoke up in New Hampshire at the invitation of the Sullivan County Republican Party, and the whole incident showed in microcosm how the far-Left has gained control of the media, the educational system, and the culture in general, without any significant pushback from those who are supposedly committed to the freedom of speech and a free society. My appearance led to what has now become the usual firestorm that ensues whenever someone who...

    The social media giant is out of control. Facebook has unpublished the “Bikers for America” page, citing alleged scam concerns as an excuse to remove the popular patriotic page from their social media platform. The group made the announcement in a Twitter post on Sunday: pic.twitter.com/LUZP9GzClj — Bikers for America (@Bikeramerica) October 20, 2019 They are considering legal action as well as planning a rally in favor of free speech against Big Tech monopoly platforms at war with the 1st Amendment. We can organize a rally but it doesn’t necessarily have to be all bikers! Patriots for free speech! And...

    GOP House member Matt Gaetz is condemning Democrats for concealing their impeachment proceedings from Republicans. In a fiery speech Wednesday, Gaetz was joined by a number of his Republican colleagues who attempted storm into a facility where Democrats were looking into classified materials as part of their inquiry. Gaetz said if Democrats plan to pursue their inquiry, Americans have a right to a transparent investigation. He added, that investigation has been anything but straight forward so far. His comments comes as Senator Lindsey Graham finalizes a resolution to formally condemn the House impeachment inquiry.

    A Dallas, Texas jury on Tuesday awarded custody of a seven-year-old child to his mother, who has the boy dress as a girl while in her care because she believes he is transgender. The child’s father, Jeffrey Younger, has been fighting the child’s mother, Anne Georgulas, in court to prevent her from ultimately chemically and possibly physically castrating the child, which is now the politically correct way to treat gender dysphoria.Younger says young James is comfortable as a boy while in his care, choosing boy clothes, preferring his male given name to his mother’s transgender moniker “Luna,” and describing...

    The House will vote today on the SHIELD Act, a Democrat-led and misguided effort to deter foreign interference in American elections. While both parties agree that foreign interference, especially online, was a serious issue in the 2016 election, in fact, the GOP has its own bill, this Democratic effort fails in two major ways. First, it threatens First Amendment protections on free political speech, and second, it fails to address the major issue in 2016 interference. Free Speech Limitations One of the major problems with the SHEILD Act regarding free speech is a provision that allows the federal government to...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — President Donald Trump is making his 14th trip to Pennsylvania tomorrow. Wednesday’s visit to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center is for the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s conference. His return appearance at the conference in Pittsburgh is an official event, but it is reminiscent of his campaign stop here three years ago. “They tell me that a Republican can’t carry the state of Pennsylvania. Wait until they see what happens here,” said candidate Trump back then. “Wait’ll you see. I think we’re going to have a big, big victory right here.” As a political prognosticator, President Trump was...

    Representative Elise Stefanik (R-New York) gives a good general perspective from a centrist, non ideological, politician. As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Stefanik is at the center of the impeachment efforts undertaken by HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff. Ms. Stefanik has had enough of the schemes and games and is publicly calling out Chairman Schiff for his manipulation of the impeachment process. This type of push-back is good, because Pelosi and Schiff’s crew are comfortable with the customary GOP push-back from McCarthy, Jordan, Meadows, Gaetz, Collins, Nunes etc. However, the Lawfare crowd is not prepared...

    House Democrats are grilling a stream of disgruntled career diplomats in a basement hearing room of the Capitol. The hearings are supposed to be secret, but Democrats leak snippets of the testimony daily. They are hoping it will add up to a case for impeaching President Trump. So far, all the testimony actually proves is these State Department diplomats think they, not Trump, ought to be running foreign policy. Never mind impeachment. The most pressing constitutional issue is who decides the nation’s foreign policy, the president or the permanent bureaucracy. House Democrats are accusing Trump of offering Ukrainian President Volodymyr...

    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he has no control over how long the Senate would take to conclude a trial if the House votes to impeach President Trump. “I have no idea how long this will go on,” said the Kentucky Republican. McConnell’s words appear to contradict a suggestion he made last month when he said that while the Senate would have to take up impeachment, “how long you are on it is a different matter.” If the House passes articles of impeachment, the Senate would have to follow existing rules for conducting the trial unless 100 senators agreed...

    Republicans have allegedly been barred from even viewing transcripts taken during impeachment hearings. This includes the transcripts of Executive Branch employees who, it has been reported, have provided largely exculpatory testimony. Testimony, that because of Pelosi’s rules, we’ll never see. Neither will House Republicans or President Trump’s attorneys. Schiff/Pelosi-led Democrats will craft the narrative and the limited ‘factual’ evidence that becomes public in a carefully managed scheme to shape public opinion. Does this sound familiar? It should: “The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state.” This...

    U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Firearms Policy Coalition has issued the following statement in the wake of another killing of an armed and innocent person by police: On October 12, in Fort Worth, Texas, Atatiana Koquice Jefferson’s neighbor called the police because he saw the door of her home left ajar. A Fort Worth police officer took the call. About 2:20 a.m., without announcing his presence, he began moving around outside Ms. Jefferson’s home, checking windows and making noise. Hearing alarming sounds from outside her home, Ms. Jefferson did what many responsible Americans would do: she went to investigate the sounds, prepared for...

    Who the Hell Do They Think They Are? With William McRaven’s call to oust President Trump—maybe through impeachment, maybe through a coup—the military officer class joins the establishment in claiming a right to rule, regardless of the outcome of elections. Angelo Codevilla - October 19th, 2019 Retired Admiral William McRaven devoted the bulk of a New York Times op-ed to appropriating for himself the moral and hence political authority of generations of soldiers and sailors (pointedly, especially the female ones) who have sacrificed for America, for “the good and the right.” Then he gratuitously stated—citing no specifics, as if everyone...
