    Washington Times ^ | Jan 17, 2019 | Aldridge’s Richardson
    Three days before the 2019 Women’s March, organizers announced they had moved to a smaller venue as the third annual march confronts bad weather, a government shutdown and a dramatic drop of support on the left. The Women’s March said Wednesday it had changed its starting point to Freedom Plaza at the corner of 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue — instead of the National Mall — with plans to march “past the Trump Hotel.” The Women’s March said it had been required to relocate by the National Park Service due to snow and accused the agency of pressuring the group...

    Americans for Truth about Homosexuality ^ | December 19, 2018 | Peter LaBarbera
    We applaud Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) for putting a hold in the Senate on leftist lesbian legal activist Chai Feldblum, whom President Donald Trump foolishly reappointed to the federal EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) last December. AFTAH has followed Feldblum (an atheist) for many years and fought her back in 2009 when she was first appointed to the EEOC by Obama. By the way, she petulantly blocks me on Twitter, indicating her lack of impartiality and strong activist bias. Feldblum argues that the battle between “gay rights” and religious liberties is a “zero-sum game” and that LGBTQ legal activists should...

    William Blum, who raged against United States foreign policy in relative obscurity for decades until one of his published anti-imperialist broadsides received a surge in sales thanks to a surprise public tribute from Osama bin Laden, died on Sunday in Arlington, Va. He was 85. His son, Alexander, said the cause was kidney failure. Mr. Blum had been hospitalized after being injured in a fall in his apartment in October. Mr. Blum (pronounced “bloom”) was a computer programmer for the State Department who aspired to become a career Foreign Service officer and “take part in the great anti-Communist crusade,” he...
  • Jennifer Rubin: Trump to Resign 10 Minutes Before Term Is up, Let Pence Pardon Him

    Washington Post writer and frequent MSNBC commentator Jennifer Rubin predicted Sunday that President Trump would resign from office with 10 minutes left in his presidency and accept a pardon from his successor, Mike Pence. “I also don’t think that Trump can pardon himself. And if he tries that, and that’s his only mechanism, he risks being prosecuted after he leaves office,” Jennifer Rubin said. She continued, “For that very reason, I would predict, here on MSNBC, that when Trump leaves office, he will resign the presidency 10 minutes before Mike Pence leaves office, allowing Pence to pardon him, if there...

    When I told my husband I was interviewing a writer who thinks men should give their wives a ‘cheat pass’ this Christmas, he understandably had some questions. “How would the wife find someone suitable for the occasion?” he wondered. (We were talking in the abstract, of course, and I deemed it safer to treat this as rhetorical.) I assured him that yes, it was all very unfeasible, and concluded he’ll more likely gift me jewellery.
  • CNN's Gloria Borger: Source close to Cohen says he has 'the goods'

    CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger on Thursday said a source close to Michael Cohen told her that Cohen has "the goods" on his former boss, President Trump. "'Michael has the goods,'" Borger said on CNN, reading her source's quote. "'He has extremely valuable information.'" Cohen, Trump's longtime fixer and attorney, pleaded guilty Thursday for misstatements he made to Congress while testifying about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign. Cohen appeared in a federal court in Manhattan after reaching a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating ties between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia....

    Republican Sen. Rand Paul blocking codification of Obama-era military deal with Israel. Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is blocking U.S. military aid to Israel. Paul, who has previously called to cut defense assistance to Israel, recently put a hold on the U.S.-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, which codifies into law the $38 billion defense aid package for Israel over 10 years that was negotiated in the final days of the Obama administration. A hold is a parliamentary procedure that allows senators to prevent a motion from reaching a floor vote. The Senate passed the act in early...

    I have long been a fan of Ben Shapiro's work. He's an excellent debater, a terrific columnist, and great on the radio. It has been fantastic seeing his career take off in the last few years. As a little show of gratitude for all the excellent work he's done, here are the 20 best Ben Shapiro quotes. 20. "There are times when people are not so cordial and not so nice. My obligation, in debate, is to destroy them in front of as many people as possible." 19. "Life isn't about feeling comfortable. Life is about bettering yourself." 18. "Freedom...

    Hungary has banned gender studies from universities due to low enrollment, which causes waste of tax payer money, and because there are no more than two sexes. From Fox News: Left-wing critics say it’s academically problematic, politically unheard of in a democratic society, and argue gender studies degrees do lead to jobs. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has been called the Donald Trump of Europe, signed the decree, which went into effect Saturday, removing gender studies from a list of approved master’s programs, though students already enrolled will be grandfathered in. “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that...

    A New York man has been charged with building a 200-pound bomb he allegedly planned to detonate on Washington's National Mall on Election Day. Paul Rosenfeld, 56, appeared in federal court on Wednesday after law enforcement agents found an explosive device in his basement on Tuesday, according to a news release from the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. Rosenfeld was pulled over while driving, and in an interview with law enforcement agents, he admitted to purchasing black powder online, transporting it to his house in New York from New Jersey and constructing an explosive device...

  • Democratic fundraiser says America is racist and sexist, 'bleep the bible voters'

    Democrats are hoping to make gains in Republican-leaning congressional districts by running moderates with biographies that appeal to center-right voters including veterans, gun owners, and football players, and in doing so have distanced themselves from the far-left of the Democratic Party. Yet despite packaging themselves as reasonable centrists, Democrats running in Texas and Kentucky are teaming up with a motivational speaker who has a history of hostile rhetoric and negative views of middle America. Retired Lt. Col. Amy McGrath and former Tennessee Titans linebacker Colin Allred are running in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District and Texas’ 32nd District, respectively. Both candidates...

    Real estate experts say J.B. Pritzker, Democrat candidate for Illinois governor, may have some serious legal problems stemming from a leaked report outlining how he allegedly manipulated Cook County’s tax system to lower his property tax bill. The leaked report from Cook County’s top watchdog revisits how the Chicago billionaire got tax breaks totaling more than $300,000 by ripping out the toilets and altering other parts of one of his Gold Coast mansions shortly before having it deemed uninhabitable by a private appraiser.

    Harvard Law professor and popular criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz is the latest high-profile figure accused of engaging in sexual assault some years ago. “In a filing in Florida federal court last week, former federal judge Paul Cassell and Florida plaintiffs attorney Bradley Edwards said that their client was forced as a minor by financier Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with several people, including Dershowitz and Britain’s Prince Andrew,” Reuters reported. But quite unlike how comedian Bill Cosby has handled the accusations against him, Dershowitz came out swinging. In a sworn affidavit filed on Monday, Dershowitz called the charges...

    As political leaders from both sides of the aisle rushed to applaud the Bush administration’s Jan. 11 nomination of attorney Michael Chertoff as the new head of the Department of Homeland Security, one powerful Democrat was missing from the cheering squad: Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.While New York’s senior Senator, Charles Schumer, took just seven minutes to issue a giddy paean to Mr. Chertoff, Mrs. Clinton waited until midday to issue a decidedly cool, neutral statement. And though she avoided the kind of prickly language that would suggest she still carried a grudge against Mr. Chertoff—who played a leading role in...
