  • Milo Yiannopoulos got punished despite having done nothing wrong!

    Milo didn't do what he's accused of doing -- but he's being punished nevertheless. That's just wrong . . . and so ickily Leftist. Sometimes the Lefties in this country get lucky. They have a truly dangerous adversary like Milo Yiannopoulos, someone who bravely and wades into the fight, and does so in such a way that he exposes to the maximum number of people how monstrous the ideological enemy really is -- and then self-righteous "conservatives" take him down without the Left having to lift a finger. This is just so wrong. You'd think that people, especially those on...
  • It's Time to Scrap Property Taxes

    American Thinker ^ | February 22, 2017 | Justin Haskins
    Since the dawn of human civilization, governments have relied on property taxes to pay for public services. In ancient Egypt, the pharaoh’s tax collectors levied taxes on individuals’ grain, oil, livestock, and land. When Alexander the Great conquered the world more than 2,300 years ago, he established administrators to assess local property taxes in the communities he ruled over, with some of the more troublesome nations paying more as a penalty for their disobedience. European monarchs would later assess their own property taxes, which, on occasion, led to full-scale wars between wealthy land-owning rivals. The British property tax system would...

    The hateful Left whose most effective weapon is character assassination has created a gotcha culture for conservatives, and conservatives can be counted on to fold every time. Barney Frank had a prostitution ring operating out of his house and masturbated into the president's locker in the Capitol gym. But that didn't prevent him from architecting the incredibly destructive Dodd-Frank bill and the subprime mortgage crisis because Democrats never broke ranks and protected him. Milo [Yiannopoulos] is indisputably the most effective conservative on campus battling the anti-American identity-obsessed, racist Left. He is a victim of sexual abuse himself, which entails...

    Well, I knew I shouldn't have said anything. A few days ago I bragged in this space about having overcome my years-long addiction to the New York Times. Then, in the wake of President Trump's remark on Saturday in Melbourne, Florida, about “last night in Sweden,” I noticed on Facebook that the Times had run a “news story” by one Sewell Chan headlined “‘Last Night in Sweden’? Trump’s Remark Baffles a Nation.” I couldn't resist.   As it turned out, of course, Trump hadn't baffled the entire Swedish nation. What had really happened was that a great many members of...

    It was Nobel laureate economist Milton Friedman who made famous the adage, "There's no such thing as a free lunch." Professor Friedman could have added that there is a difference between something's being free and something's having a zero price. For example, people say that there's free public education and there are free libraries, but public education and libraries cost money. Proof that they have costs is the fact that somebody has to have less of something by giving up tax money so that schools and libraries can be produced and operated. A much more accurate statement is that we...

    President Donald Trump has vowed to renegotiate NAFTA, which he calls “a disaster.” But before he tears up the trade deal and walls America off from the world with a manmade mountain of tariffs, let’s take a moment to take stock of why NAFTA was created, what it has achieved, and what the U.S., North America, and the world might look like after NAFTA is gone. President Ronald Reagan sketched the outlines of NAFTA in 1979. The idea of a free-trade zone stretching from the Yukon to the Yucatan was so important to Reagan that he made it a central...

    Former Fort Worth, Texas, police officer Brian Franklin is finally free. But he is still fighting to clear his name. "I've been vindicated," he told me in an interview last week, "but not yet exonerated." Franklin served 21 years in prison -- a harrowing 7,700 days -- of a life sentence after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in 1995. But he steadfastly maintained his innocence, studied law in the prison library and won a reversal of his conviction last spring. In December, a jury acquitted him after a second criminal trial. "It's been a roller coaster...

    October 25, 1976. This morning, we boarded a chartered bus to take us to the airport in Addis Ababa and thence to home. Along the way, we picked up a police escort. That seemed odd until we reached the gate of the airport. Awaiting us was a vast sea of refugees extending to the horizon left and right. This ocean of humanity was desperate to find a way out of the newly communist Ethiopia and the bloodbath that had already started a couple of days before. The police motorcycles pushed slowly through the crowd like the prow of a ramshackle...
  • SUDDEN SHIFT IN MAJOR MEDIA'S WAR ON TRUMP

    What a difference a few days makes. If the bulk of the major media had been experiencing grief over the election of President Trump, it appears as though the White House press corps has reached the stage of acceptance. Acceptance that Trump is the president, Sean Spicer is the White House press secretary, and that’s the way it will be. A truce, of sorts. And a largely amiable one at that. It was just last Wednesday that the establishment press appeared to be in an all-out war with the White House. When President Trump used a press conference to attack...

    If you get most of your news from the mainstream media, you might come to the conclusion that the first month of Donald Trump’s administration is unique in the annals of presidential chaos and incompetence. Rather than the “well-oiled machine” touted by Trump, the press portrays his presidency as a jalopy full of circus clowns. But is that true? Are Donald Trump’s stumbles really unique? Have previous presidents been paragons of proficiency and professionalism who’ve gotten off to a smooth start during their first 100 days? For an answer, let’s go to the presidential videotape.

    Those who have made a career of trying to drive all vestiges of religion from the public square, from manger scenes at Christmas to mentioning God in the Pledge of Allegiance, were not happy when First Lady Melania Trump recited the Lord’s Prayer at her husband’s rally in Florida. The tolerant left mocked the accent of a woman and an immigrant who speaks five languages. They moaned that it was an affront to those who are not Christian. And they brought out that old canard about the separation of church and state. We have not seen such outrage since former...
  • Trump Is Beating the Media at Its Own Game

    For years journalists opined self-servingly under the guise of objectivity and got away it because Republicans were too afraid to shatter that illusion of objectivity. They permitted the media to serve as the arbiter of what qualifies as “mainstream,” “extremist,” “racist,” and so forth, and made sure to stay within the media-determined parameters of any discussion. Donald Trump has blown up that absurd arrangement and is beating the media at its own game. He labels reporters in the same way that they label him. He upends their dishonest framing of debates by treating them as what they are, liberal partisans....

    Socialism: Want to lose weight fast? Don't worry about the latest fad diet. Just move to Venezuela. There, the new Socialist Diet has caused the population to lose millions of pounds in 12 months. Unwillingly, of course. A new study of Venezuela's stunning decline under Hugo Chavez's socialist model, still followed faithfully by his lap dog successor, Nicolas Maduro, reports that the average Venezuelan lost 19 pounds in the last year. Today, the 2016 Living Conditions Survey finds, 32.5% of Venezuelans eat only once or twice a day, up from 11.3% just one year ago. And 93.3% of all people...

This is huge news that has big implications about economic growth. The latest business leaders' survey from JPMorgan Chase finds a dramatic increase in optimism among the 1,400 middle-market executives polled. It found that 80% of these executives are optimistic about the economy, which is nearly double the share expressing optimism just one year ago. And it's the highest level since this...
  • New York City’s broken windows policing helps Trump deport immigrants, pol says

    The city should stop making arrests for minor offenses like fare beating to avoid setting more people up for deportation, a city lawmaker and legal aid groups said Tuesday. Under President Trump’s new hardline immigration policies, an undocumented immigrant becomes a priority for deportation if charged with any criminal offense. And people who get arrested have their fingerprints sent to the feds. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents have even been waiting outside Manhattan misdemeanor arraignment courts in recent days to nab people after their court appearances, according to New York County Defender Services

    Many people are noticing a rather familiar, albeit oddly timed, leftist “anti-Semitism” narrative being pushed into the media broadcasts over the past 36 hours. Yes, it seems to have come out of no-where. Why? No-one is really understanding what’s going on. Understandably, the right-side of the political continuum are referencing the media push from the position of their own camp; that makes them defensive. However, the actual motive of the professional corporate media to push this meme has nothing to do with President Trump or republicans – it’s an internal maneuver and transparently Clintonian. {..snip..}

    Melania Trump has too many negatives to win the affections of envy-prone Americans. She is rich, tall, intelligent, well traveled, elegant, professionally accomplished, slim, stylish and photogenic in—or out of-- designer togs. She is devoted to family, lives in spectacular homes and travels by private jet. Worst of all, she won the heart of the most powerful man on the planet. At a recent Trump rally in Florida, she had the gall to pray. She read the Lord’s Prayer, into a microphone, no less. Heaven help us.

    If you halved Donald Trump’s age, changed his sexual orientation, gave him a British accent and fussed with his hair only a little, you’d end up with a creature much like Milo Yiannopoulos. He could be Trump’s lost gay child. In fact, Yiannopoulos, 33, has a habit of referring to Trump, 70, as “Daddy.” Trump the father and Yiannopoulos the son are both provocateurs who realize that in this day and age especially, the currency of celebrity isn’t demeaned by the outrageousness and offensiveness through which a person achieves it. Both are con men, wrapping themselves in higher causes, though...

Something far less dramatic but perhaps as disturbing as Hollywood fiction played out this February...

Concerning the latter, Trump said no such thing, nor did he "suggest" it. Concerning the former, if Sweden's not in crisis, it had a funny way of showing it Monday night, as there were riots in Stockholm.

    Last summer, at the first meeting of the Trump Leadership Council -- an advisory group consisting of top CEOs from major companies -- Donald Trump asked business leaders what their biggest problems were. I expected the answer to be America's anti-growth tax system. Almost all the CEOs did list the federal tax code as an albatross, but not the heaviest one. Instead, I was surprised to learn, most found the biggest restraint on growth to be federal red tape and regulation. Across all industries -- manufacturers, energy firms, financial services, agriculture interests -- federal rules were seen as mindless, inefficient,...

McMaster will be the new national security adviser: General McMaster is a former commander of the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment, my old unit. I served in Iraq with a host of guys who’d served under McMaster in the Battle of Tal Afar in 2005, and almost to a man they loved him. I never served under him (I came along for the next deployment), but many of the people I respect the most were with him during one...

    The fake news that the Trump administration was “considering” using 100,000 National Guardsmen to round up illegal aliens has been thoroughly debunked by now, except in the minds of those who screech, “But, but, there was a memo!” Well, the memo, as the Independent Journal Review reported, was a DHS draft memo that was never put forward for serious consideration. Nor did it mention the figure 100,000, The hyperventilating Associated Press put the fake news out that it was an actual plan one smidgeon short of an imminent executive order. President Trump said the report was false. The Pentagon said...

    I received this slick campaign video in my email, titled "How To Resist The Trump Agenda," and thought it was a joke. After realizing that the video was for real, I thought, "What the...?!" Folks, I've been a black Tea Party guy from its beginning. I penned, recorded, and performed "The American Tea Party Anthem" at over 500 Tea Party rallies on 14 national bus tours. Thus, I witnessed that the movement was filled with white duped Obama voters who had realized he was driving us to a place we did not want to go: down the road to socialism....

    Sometimes a seemingly innocuous speech can potentially set the direction of the US presidency long before the Oval Office incumbent even declares they are running for office. Thus it is with the current White House administration – and Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s chief strategist. In July 2014, Bannon gave a 49-minute speech and Q&A to a conference hosted by the Human Dignity Institute as part of its coverage of the rise of Europe’s religious right. Advertisment Beamed live from Los Angeles – via Skype – into a small conference room tucked away inside the Vatican, Bannon declared that “the Judeo-Christian...

    RUSH: I want to thank F. Chuck Todd of NBC for opening my eyes to this. For the longest time I’ve been genuinely curious why it is that media people think that they cannot be criticized. And they really do. They really think they can go out and research people and they can dig up dirt from anybody they want, their pasts, and they can broadcast it all over. And if somebody’s life, somebody’s marriage, somebody’s relationship, somebody’s kid gets destroyed or ruined, fine and dandy. They can do all of that they want, but you turn it around and...

    West Virginia UniversityÂ’s student government has approved funding for a leftist student group whose leader was recorded physically attacking members of a conservative group three weeks ago.The Left Alliance had also told the Turning Point USA chapter to leave its Jan. 25 meeting, a possible violation of the code for registered student organizations.Though the universityÂ’s Office of Student Conduct investigated Kelley DenhamÂ’s recorded aggression toward the conservative students and interviewed the parties, nothing public has come of it, leaving the Left AllianceÂ’s campus status intact.The group proceeded to apply for a $1,000 grant from the Student Government Association, which would...

    RUSH: I appeared on Fox News Sunday yesterday with Chris Wallace. It was a 12- to 13-minute segment, and I have always suggested to the Fox people, “You know what you really ought to do is have my segment and have it go as it goes and then near the end of the program in your roundtable bring me back for the roundtable to analyze what I said. That has never been done.” And of course they’ve never taken me up on it.You know what I thought I’d do, I thought I’d do it today right here on this program....

    With the recent resignation of General Mike Flynn, President Trump has begun to look for a new National Security Advisor. Media reports have surfaced that two contenders wanted complete hiring control over staff, including those who are already in place and performing admirably. Fortunately, according to the Wall Street Journal, that was a deal breaker for President Trump. Deputy National Security Advisor KT McFarland has done an excellent job of doing the nitty-gritty work and organizing the day-to-day running of the NSC staff. We can learn a lot by looking back at the qualities President Eisenhower sought in a National...

    President Trump is getting quite a bit of blow back for saying the fake news media is the enemy of the American people. And most of the blow back is coming from the fake news media."The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" he tweeted. As you might imagine, the folks with blemish-free skin and perfectly coiffed hair accused the president of being some sort of tin pot dictator -- trying to silence and intimidate the press.Former Washington Post reporter described the president's tweet using words like "authoritarian" and "dangerous" and...
