  • Maxine Waters: The Left’s Best Against Donald Trump?

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.) said there is something “tragically wrong” with President Donald Trump. His advisers and friends are “a bunch of scumbags.” He is creating “chaos and division.” But “we can’t wait” for the next election since “He will have destroyed the country by then.” So he must be impeached. Now. Of course Rep. Waters believes something is wrong with President Trump. He’s a Republican. Actually, what she said about him is tame compared to what she said about then-House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: “These are demons” who are “destroying this country.” Of course,...

    FORT MADISON, IOWA -- Only ghosts and shadows haunt the empty halls of Sheaffer Pens, the onetime giant pen manufacturer on H Street. Its locked doors and worn brick stand like weary sentinels along the banks of the Mississippi in this struggling southeast Iowa river-and-railroad town. Rust weeps through the paint on the window frames; the once magnificent illuminated-letters sign with the trademark white dot that faced Illinois is gone, no longer serving as a gatekeeper for its fortress of employees. At its peak, it employed more than 2,500 people in a town of 14,000; nearly everyone here had someone...
  • No, Trump Didn't Cause Obamacare to Fail

    It's finally official. The Affordable Care Act is a public-policy flop of epic proportions. That's the only possible conclusion from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City announcement last week that it will drop out of many markets in Kansas and Missouri. The firm lost $100 million under the Obamacare insurance exchanges from 2014 to 2016. This is another body blow to the government-insurance system Barack Obama created in 2010. Blue Cross is one of the biggest health insurers in the nation, and now 25 more counties in these states will have no insurer left. Nearly every news...

    Washington Post reporter Cleve Wootson was recently given the responsibility of reporting on a lawsuit in which I am involved. The story he was assigned to write is actually quite simple. A California university unconstitutionally denied a student group’s request for funding to host a conservative speaker (me) on their campus. The decision to deny funding was a blatant case of viewpoint discrimination that is supported by a mountain of evidence. Thus, Wootson had an easy story to write if he simply stuck to the facts. Instead, his article wound up being a masterpiece of bad journalism.Wootson begins his article...

    University of San Francisco, a Jesuit school, no less, is presenting a lecture event on June 2, that will feature Aarab Barghouti as the guest speaker. Marwan, his father, is currently serving five life sentences in prison in Israel for specific murders, but bears responsibility for the murders of over 100 men, women and children in terrorist attacks in the Jewish state, some of them U.S. citizens. “Only Israeli propaganda presents him as a terrorist," Aarab, the terrorist murderer's youngest son, is quoted as saying. "Nelson Mandela was also portrayed as a terrorist. He spent 27 years in prison. And...
  • ARE HIGH-LEVEL DEMOCRATS BEING BLACKMAILED BY MUSLIMS?

    THE BLACK SPHERE ^ | MAY 26, 2017 | TIFFANY LAYNE
    Muslim IT scammers took hundreds of thousands of dollars from key Democrats. Democrats being blackmailed proof was undeniable. Yet, they remain free! Months ago we broke the story of a group of brothers who ripped off Congress. Between scams involving a car dealership and overpaid IT jobs they managed to secure for themselves and their wives, they walked away with a boatload of cash. The Abeds wanted the good life, and they were willing to do anything to secure it, including hacking emails and selling political secrets. .. It appears the Anwans stole enough data to put high-level Democrats in...

    In a passionate speech on Feb. 28, 2017, Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, encouraged members of South Africa’s Parliament to stand for radical change and take back their land from the whites. Malema encouraged the people to vote in favor of amending the constitution in order to allow the land to be expropriated without compensation. Whites originally took the land during colonialism and still own a majority of it. Malema incited Black people to fight against the white dominance and take back the land that is theirs. This Atlanta Black Star video highlights the EFF’s determined efforts...

    When people you know well, admire, and who share your values do something you strongly oppose, you have two options: 1) Cease admiring them or 2) try to understand them and change their minds. In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason -- beside the fact that I simply like many of them -- is what I refer to as "moral bank accounts." Every time we do good, we make a deposit into our moral bank account. And every time we do something bad, we make...

    Fairfield Sun Times ^ | March 28 2017 | Frank Miele
    The New York Times, in a front-page story, said that the president “wanted to splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.” Whether that quote is accurate or not we don’t know, but it makes sense that after the agency damaged the president’s reputation so badly, he would react with such anger. If you are a student of history, you already know that the president who swore a vendetta against the Central Intelligence Agency wasn’t Donald Trump, but John F. Kennedy, and that although he did not abolish the agency before his assassination, he did...
  • Op-ed: Replacing Chaffetz requires following our Constitution

    Deseret News ^ | May 29, 2017 | Ernest Istook
    Utahns are consulting the U.S. Constitution more than usual because of Congressman Jason Chaffetz’s resignation. A vacancy in the House of Representatives is unique among all federal offices because it must be filled by an election. No appointments are permitted for membership in what is often called “The People’s House.” Federal judges are chosen by the president, with Senate confirmation of the appointment. The same is true for Cabinet officers. Governors may make appointments to fill Senate vacancies. Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich infamously tried to auction the Senate seat vacated when Barack Obama was elected president; that’s why Blagojevich...

    When an Islamic migrant blew himself up at a concert venue in Manchester, England, killing over twenty people, I didn’t hold my breath like the American media did. I knew immediately what had caused it—and who.An unspoken rulebook is developing for these kinds of tragedies. First, we must make certain that Islam is not named as a cause of the act, even when it clearly is. Second, we must speak of prayers (presumably the Christian variety) and solidarity. And, finally, as the American media intones over and over, we must not politicize the tragedy. Of course they succeed magnificently in...

    Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidential election, just can’t quite seem to get it through her head — that she lost the presidential election. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, she told the writer she should’ve won — she would’ve won — had it not been for those dang, pesky Russians. Her words: “I would have won had I not been subjected to the unprecedented attacks by [former FBI chief James] Comey and the Russians, aided and abetted by the suppression of the vote, particularly in Wisconsin,” where I didn’t bother to campaign. Oops — that last was...

    Two developments in the past few weeks suggest that America’s China policy is on a cusp.The more publicly discussed event involves the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS Dewey, which conducted a freedom of navigation operation near Mischief Reef in the Spratlys island group.This is the first freedom of navigation action conducted by the Trump administration. It is the first true freedom of navigation conducted since at least 2012.By contrast, the Obama administration had undertaken a handful of “innocent passage” activities in the South China Sea, which failed to demonstrate the critical issues at stake.The actions carried out in the previous administration...

    Memorial Day is a time for remembrance. Many think of the ones who have died in combat, but a forgotten group is the Missing In Action. On this solemn day Americans should think about those who never came home, with their families left in limbo. Thankfully, there is one group whose sole purpose is to account for the ones who fought for this country, but never returned home. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency’s mission is to find many of the missing from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC) told American Thinker of...

    Are you are still wondering whether to Exit Paris? Overseas and US officials, environmentalists and bureaucrats urge you to Remain. But you promised voters you would Exit. Please keep your promises. Exit Paris isnÂ’t about the environment. ItÂ’s about letting us utilize our fossil fuel energy to create jobs, rebuild our economy, and Make America Great Again. ItÂ’s about avoiding immense transfer payments from the USA to foreign governments, bureaucrats and parties unaccountable to Trump-voting taxpayers. Worse, even if the USA Remains, and the repulsive payments flow, Paris offers no help in removing real air pollutants. Carbon dioxide isnÂ’t one...

    This Memorial Day is a day worth particular remembrance.Unlike the Obama Administration, President Donald Trump’s administration does not run from honoring the service, present and past, of our military. We really cannot appreciate their efforts on behalf of this great country. They have fought, they have stood their ground, they have taken on the enemy. Instead of wasting time and energy on the press, Trump greeted Army troops all with an enthusiastic roll of “USA! USA!”The deeds of our armed men and women must never be forgotten. There is no worse fate for great deeds than “L’oubli,” a French...

    From the moment Donald Trump took office, the key word from Democrats in Washington has been “Resist.” They’ve enlisted the support of the willing “Destroy Trump” media to keep ridiculous fake news assaults alive. Yes, there is evidence of Russia attempting to influence the election, but there’s no evidence that it impacted even one vote. What is seldom reported by the media is that there is absolutely no evidence of any crime by Trump or his administration in participating in any form of conspiracy or collusion. Newt Gingrich observes that the liberal “attack media” seems to have one controlling mantra—“Trump...

    I know it’s theoretically wrong for a Republican candidate to smack around an annoying liberal journalist, but that still doesn’t mean that I care. Our ability to care is a finite resource, and, in the vast scheme of things, millions of us have chosen to devote exactly none of it toward caring enough to engage in fussy self-flagellation because of what happened to Slappy La Brokenshades.Sorry, not sorry.And that’s not a good thing, not by any measure, but it is a real thing. Liberals have chosen to coarsen our culture. Their validation and encouragement of raw hate, their flouting of...

    And so it begins. Again. In the wake of every Islamic attack, instead of the Muslim world reflecting on why so many Muslims are waging jihad and wreaking havoc across the world, charges of “islamophobia” “bigotry” and “racism” (even though Islam is not a race) are being leveled — again. Here comes the fake hate narrative, while the real hate is coming from the jihadists. If Muslims in the West condemn these attacks by jihadists, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?

 Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in mosques...

    The lessons of the Conquered.

And they are disarming their children, leading the sheep to slaughter. There may “always be an England?”Chaos and civil war. There may always be an England, but it will be a sharia state.
