  • Double Standards On Biden Corruption Versus Spygate Prove Big Media Is Public Enemy No. 1

    Corporate media obscured the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, involving the Obama-Biden administration spying on a political enemy. They’re doing the same to Biden corruption. Big media’s divergent handling of the Steele dossier and the Hunter Biden email stories proves that the corrupt press is not just the enemy of the people, but the enemy of truth, freedom, and our constitutional republic. For nearly four years, big media peddled Russia collusion as reality-based and the Christopher Steele “dossier” it rested upon as “mostly verified” or “fake but accurate.” Relying on unnamed sources, inuendo, and illegal leaks, the press played...
  • Amy Coney Barrett Will Be Confirmed Because Kavanaugh Battle Taught GOP To Stop Getting Played By Democrat Dirty Tricks

    It took a few decades of the left playing the exact same games with most confirmation battles, but finally the right figured out how to render those attacks worthless. Amy Coney Barrett has not yet been confirmed as an associate justice of the Supreme Court by the U.S. Senate, but there is no question that her confirmation battle has gone much better than the one endured by Brett Kavanaugh and his supporters. The undervalued reason why is that Republicans and their voters are not wasting any time on dirty tricks from their opponents in the Senate and in the media....
  • The Curtain Falls - the Last Presidential Debate and What We Should Expect

    10/22/2020 9:02:29 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | October 22, 2020 | Rick Gates
    Although most viewers will not be on the edge of their seats for the final presidential debate tonight, it will be nothing short of a spectacle of frenzied accusations, heated tempers, and vague and incomplete policy descriptions. Debates rarely sway support for either candidate. However, since the first encounter between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden was widely labeled anything but a debate, and the second planned meeting between the two was hastily cancelled, the final debate will give voters one last opportunity to measure each candidate as they spar on the same stage. And it will no doubt provide...
  • Senate Republicans Move to Protect the Supreme Court With Constitutional Amendment

    Every now and then, a man, a mission, and a moment all come together. Such is now the case with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who this week introduced, with several cosponsors, S.J.Res. 76, a constitutional amendment to hold the number of justices on the Supreme Court at nine. It’s an axiom of conservatism that “If it is not necessary to change, then it is necessary not to change.” In other words, in more modern language, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But what if it is broke? Or, worse still, what if you know that something working fine...
  • Two Weeks to Go

    Washington -- Two weeks from today, we shall know who is to be our next president. Or perhaps we will not know who is to be our next president two weeks from today. It might take three or four weeks. It might take the laborious workings of the courts all the way up to the Supreme Court. Actually, we may never know who won the 2020 election. We might have a runoff in 2021. You think not? Well, look how screwed up the 2016 election became. The Democrats were holding out for Hillary for months. Some were holding out for...

    A project for President Trump -- and for whomever plans to follow him in leadership. Last week Cuba and the People’s Republic of China, both longstanding Communist dictatorships, gained election to the United Nations Human Rights Council. The move should come as no surprise because the UN tilted to Communist states from the start. In the waning days of World War II, Stalin’s foreign minister Andrei Gromyko suggested U.S. State Department official Alger Hiss as the first UN Secretary General, the first and only time a Soviet leader recommended an American for an international post. Hiss was duly appointed acting...

    After watching Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings, Americans should be outraged. The Democrats used it as a political commercial, questioned her integrity, pushed a narrative that she is threatening and radical, attacked her Catholic faith, and even asked her if she ever was arrested for harassment. But even more disturbing is how conservative women, not only Judge Barrett, but many in other professions, have been threatened because of their views. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) recently wrote a book, The Mind of a Conservative Woman. She told American Thinker, “Too many liberals, everyone is merely an economic unit, and every principle...

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. The Biden family is notorious for being the crookedest clan not only in Delaware, but in D.C. Delaware is a pretty small place, but D.C. is even smaller, yet the scope for corruption, unethical behavior, conflicts of interest, and even brazen thievery are far greater in Washington D.C. And yet the Biden family stood out even there. To be born a Biden in the era after Joe switched his party affiliation, plagiarized his speeches, and...
  • Reports: Biden’s tax plan would increase taxes across the board, estimates vary by how much

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s proposed tax increases of nearly $4 trillion over the next 10 years, if passed, “would be the highest in American history – indeed, in world history,” an analysis of his plan determined. A separate analysis by the nonprofit, nonpartisan, Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation found that Biden’s tax plan would reduce the economy’s size by 1.47 percent in the long run. It would also shrink capital stock by just over 2.5 percent and reduce the overall wage rate by a little over 1 percent, resulting in a loss of 518,000 full-time jobs. His plan would raise...

    One would expect that a deceptive narrative about colonial America, rebuked by a couple of dozen distinguished historians of that era, would promptly be pulled from the shelves and kicked to the curb. Not so for the 1619 Project, the New York Times Magazine magnum opus that uses slavery as the force majeure to pass an idea off as factual history. The 1619 Project has now been integrated into the curricula of at least 4500 elementary and high schools in California, Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York. The illiberal embrace of this fictional work in scholastics is emblematic of a...

    Justice may well be the very first inkling of moral law that blossoms in the human soul. Siblings at a very young age are quick to note discrepancies in parental approbation, quick to recognize any inconsistencies in rewards and punishments, quick to imagine any injustice. As I write this I’m remembering my youngest granddaughter at a mere 18 months of age, tearfully objecting to her sister enjoying a lollypop -- “Julia lolly!” Her sister had saved hers from the night before; Violet had wolfed hers down, so she had no case to prosecute, but she certainly thought she did; her...

    It was recently reported that Patrissa Cullors, a founding woman of Black Lives Matter, was signed by Warner Brothers to a multiyear deal across all of its programming platforms that “encompasses scripted and unscripted series, longform series, animated and kids programming, as well as digital content.” In a statement released by Cullors after the signing, she mentioned that a reason for celebration is that “Black voices, especially Black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling.” Historically, yes. Contemporarily, no. (This begs the question: Why are most examples of oppression from the past?) Log onto...

    Francis’s new encyclical reads like a UN mission statement. To celebrate the memory of Saint Francis of Assisi, to whom his pontificate is consecrated, Pope Francis has honored us with a long encyclical entitled Fratelli Tutti, or “All Brothers.” I doubt that this text will become a bestseller among the faithful, though all Catholics are urged to pay heed to such pronouncements. For those who, like me, are not Catholic, these texts are still worth analyzing as reflections of the spirit of the times and the intellectual atmosphere at the Vatican. Fratelli Tutti, unsurprisingly, confirms the pope’s solid positioning on...

    It seems as if Republicans can't stop talking about Joe Biden's obviously diminished mental state. At his rallies, President Trump regularly refers to Biden as "Sleepy Joe" and says things like, "He doesn't even know what state he's in." Cable news hosts like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity run Biden gaffe videos, where Biden will say things like, "I'm Joe Biden, and I'm running to be your next senator!" or he'll turn to an assistant after making a short speech and ask, "Where do I go now? Tell me what to do." At 78, he'd be the oldest president ever,...

    On the path to voting Donald Trump out of office, the Left’s media machine would like to suppress revelations about the Biden Crime Family. As early as 2001, Senator Joe Biden set up his son, Hunter, with a lucrative ‘consulting’ agreement with a large bank. The agreement called for Hunter to receive $100,000 per year, concurrent with Joe, ‘the big guy,’ helping the credit card industry to attain passage of a bill to hamper consumers’ ability to file for bankruptcy.  Reports also are emerging that Biden had been sugarcoating huge payments to family members long before that, added to the...

    The headlines grow more disgusting -- and, frankly, more unbelievable -- with each passing day. Jeffrey Toobin, a columnist for The New Yorker, was suspended earlier this week (and placed on leave from his gig as chief legal analyst for CNN) after he was allegedly observed masturbating during a Zoom call with some of his colleagues from the magazine and from WYNC radio. Unsurprisingly, Toobin has become an object of derision and the butt of countless jokes. (Other parts of his unseemly backstory are getting more publicity. This is not, as they say, his first rodeo.) Not everyone has piled...

    Rapper/actor Ice Cube is on the brink of understanding the left-wing con! He appears on the verge of understanding the fake product that the Democrats and the media have been peddling: that America remains guilty of "systemic racism." In a video Cube posted on social media, he wondered what Blacks are getting in return for their virtually unquestioned loyalty to the Democratic Party. In explaining why he recently met with Democrats and Republicans, Cube tweeted: "Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They're all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all...

    To hear leftists on cable news tell it, there’s a Russian behind every bush and tree. They hear everything you say, and see more of you than New Yorker magazine staff members saw of Jeffrey Toobin. In fact, the Russian disinformation plotters are more omniscient than Santa Claus. You’d be insane to deny them their will, they’re that good…or so liberals believe. Democrats have tried a lot of campaign strategies this election season – you’re a racist, now vote for me; the country sucks, let us run it; you don’t know how bad you have it; etc., etc. – but...
  • Will Changes to American Life Become Permanent?

    The coronavirus, widespread quarantines, an unprecedented self-induced recession, and unchecked rioting, looting, and protesting -- all in a presidential election year -- are radically disrupting American habits and behavior. Rents, home prices, and office occupancy rates in major cities, especially on the two coasts, are dropping fast. Techies and young professionals have discovered that they can work from home without paying sky-high housing costs in order to be close to the office. Those more fortunate wonder why they should get bogged down with commutes and urban traffic -- or navigate city sidewalks amid homelessness, crime, racial tensions, and urban unrest...

    Ahoy, you skeevy traitors. How do you think your endgame goes? You turncoat weasels already have plenty to worry about. You know you’re just one Zoom away from Toobinnig yourselves all over Twitter but you really ought to worry about November 4th. For some reason, you think good times are dead ahead, like the figurative iceberg you rammed your garbage magazines and blogs into. That’s wrong. There is no good outcome for Team Treachery. Everyone hates you. SPOILER: It’s because you suck. Now, you're always talking about how you’ll be at the vanguard of the insiders who will rebuild the...
