  • WATCH: Beto O’Rourke Defends His Repeated Trump-Hitler Comparisons On CNN

    Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) defended his oft-used analogies comparing President Donald Trump and his administration to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany amid widespread criticism. “It is the comparison of last resort and that is where we are,” O’Rourke replied when CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer questioned if he understood the backlash coming from Democrats and Republicans alike. “I don’t mean the last resort politically or last resort in terms of defeating the president in November,” he explained. “[I mean] the last resort for this country that is descending into open racism and intolerance and violence led by the president.” “Now, whether...

A smokescreen for allowing certain groups to wrap themselves in the latest cloak of politically correct piety while seeking to crush less favored groups...You see, wokesters are all about power,... Still, today, we can’t kid ourselves about the challenge ahead: We’re in an epic contest with China,... In the meantime, as we gather our strength, patriotic and freedom-loving Americans need to make sure that top athletes, big sports leagues, and giant corporations are on our side. As of now, there’s no reason to think that they are.

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Tuesday he plans to introduce legislation that would make threats and attacks against news organizations a federal crime. “What we have to address is the continuing threat of physical violence, whether by guns or other means, against the press that may intimidate them in their vital newsgathering operation,” Blumenthal said at a press conference. “It is a priority for me to protect newsgathering operations no matter what their form and the act that we’re proposing would in fact establish a federal crime when someone threatens or attacks anyone doing f act-gathering or news operations. That...

    Whatever you do, don't call Austrian Green Party politician Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek a "corrupt oaf" or "lousy traitor of the people" on Facebook. If you do, the European Union (E.U.) has ruled that Facebook can be forced to take your comments down, regardless of where you are in the world. In all likelihood, you have no idea who Glawischnig-Piesczek even is, but you should definitely worry about today's ruling and how it impacts your ability to express your opinions about politicians online. I blogged about this case back in June when the E.U. was first considering it. Glawischnig-Piesczek is a retired...

    Whether we admire & support this President is irrelevant, the sheer contempt for our sensibilities and American ideals by Democrat operatives is appalling. I’m hardly a drama queen, however, this is actually disturbing me. I can honestly say, that before the election of our 45th President, Donald J Trump, I was disgusted with both our Democrat and Republican leaders. I had invested several decades into vexing the convoluted swamp of Washington politics, in a feeble attempt to make sense of it all. I’d concluded that both parties were venerating the same master, making it appear that we actually had a...

    The National Rifle Association sued San Francisco on Monday over the city's recent declaration that the gun-rights lobby is a "domestic terrorist organization." The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby's free speech rights for political reasons and says the city is seeking to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA. It asks the court to step in "to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree."

    The United Nations Security Council wants a global "framework" for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to "counter" what its apparatchiks call "online propaganda," "hateful ideologies," and "digital terrorism." To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN "Counter-Terrorism Committee" — yes, that is a real bureaucracy — to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online — all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus...

    Mankind’s subservience to the commands of nature provides the connecting thread between Nazism and modern day environmentalism and represents a radical rejection of the Enlightenment’s belief in progress. It is what separates the New Left and the modern Left’s softer variants from their predecessors and leaves supporters of capitalism and markets as the last redoubt of belief in the potential of mankind’s unfettered material progress.

    British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan in a recent interview with Turning Point UK published on Monday said that he believes “liberals have become unbearable,” and he said this speaking “as a liberal” himself. “Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a liberal, OK?” said the “Good Morning Britain” co-anchor. “In my core, I’m probably more liberal than not, although fundamentally, I see myself as a journalist,” he continued, “and I’d like to see both sides of things, and I can argue both, but liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it’s a massive...

    The Pentagon is slamming the brakes on its mega-competition to award a $10 billion cloud computing contract after President Donald Trump suggested the Defense Department might have rigged the contest in favor of Amazon, a frequent target of his criticism. Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who assumed his post July 23, is now reviewing accusations of unfairness in the fiercely fought competition, the Pentagon announced Thursday, marking the president's latest incursion into the arcane world of Defense Department contracting. Oracle has reportedly waged an aggressive lobbying campaign to push back on the competition, now pitting Amazon against Microsoft, including talking with...

    Within hours of Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt began summoning the heads of American industry to Washington. Roosevelt knew the country would need an unprecedented buildup of planes, ships, and other war materiel. Without hesitation, American companies responded. Ford, Packard, Chrysler, 3M, Hormel, General Mills, Pillsbury, Cargill, Boeing, and many other major U.S. companies gave their all to the war effort. At Roosevelt's request, the president of General Motors even left his company to oversee the war production effort as a lieutenant general in the U.S. Army. Roosevelt's initial request for 50,000 new airplanes per year was openly mocked by...

    When a dozen of conservatism’s best minds take on Socialism and expose it for the utopian fraud it is, attention must be paid. In a brief foreword to a special issue of National Review, Editor-in-Chief Richard Lowry admitted that many conservatives thought socialism in America had been “vanquished” after the collapse of Soviet Communism 30 years ago. But as T. S. Eliot insisted, “There is no such thing as a Lost Cause because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause.” The experts examine socialism in its many guises, beginning with Charles Cooke’s blunt assessment that socialism is not...

    Google has a knife that it holds over the jugular vein of all internet publications that depend on advertising revenue.  It holds a dominant position in the digital advertising market and could, by denying ad revenue to any digital publication it targets, drive that voice out of business. Now, according to information from Project Veritas, a very large number of Google employees are demanding that Google drive Breitbart.com out of business.  Alana Mastrangelo reports at Breitbart: An internal Google petition "to end Google's business with Breitbart" was recently leaked to Project Veritas. The petition — which over 1,000 Google employees have signed...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) warned that “the US is headed toward becoming a fascist country. On the one hand, we see continued attempts to prevent foreigners from entering the United States just because it is illegal. Then when the Border Patrol fails to prevent entry they’re holding these people in concentration camps. In what way is this significantly different from what Hitler did?” “Then, just this past week we saw antifascists forced to go out into the streets of Portland and beat up enemies of progressive policies,” the Congresswoman said. “Even though they had the backing of Portland Mayor Ted...

    Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she thinks the United States is headed to becoming a fascist country after touring facilities where migrants are being kept in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Ocasio-Cortez, along with other Democrats in the House of Representatives, toured border stations in El Paso and Clint, Texas on Monday, many of them posting thoughts about what they experienced on social media afterward. The self-described Democratic socialist gave an interview to Yahoo News hours after the tour ended, where she referenced fascism. "Are we headed to fascism? Yes. I don't think there's a question.

    How do you know if you're living in a free society? Here's a quick test: Are you allowed to say obviously true things in public? Or are you forced to lie? As George Orwell put it in "1984": "Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows." But what if that freedom isn't granted? What if you're required to repeat things that you know aren't true? What if everyone who hears you knows perfectly well that you're lying, but they can't say so out loud? What if everyone is...

    Back in 2005, Russian President Vladimir Putin ensured that the remains of the Russian philosopher Ivan Ilyin were transported from Switzerland and reburied in Russia, on the territory of the prestigious Donskoi Monastery cemetery in Moscow. The gravestone was installed with Putin’s personal money. A year later, the philosopher’s archive was purchased from the University of Michigan for 40 thousand dollars and relocated to Russia. Since the beginning of the 21st century, Putin has constantly been using Ilyin’s philosophical ideas in his speeches. But why is Putin paying so much attention to this philosopher who is otherwise unknown to the...
