  • Democrats introduce bill to ban pastors from ministering to homosexuals

    Despite the way it's being reported . . . This story is a good example of how politicians use phrasing to disguise what they’re really doing, and the media play along because they support the obfuscation agenda. In some cases it’s because the media really are that dumb and gullible, but the gullibility usually stems from their natural trust of Democrats - so it all comes back to the fact that they share the same agenda. You’ve heard about something called “gay conversion therapy,” which sounds like some nonsense procedure in which a “therapist” of questionable credibility tries to work...
  • Portland Anarchists Shut Down Parade After Bragging the Police Can't Control Them (Antifa)

    The annual Avenue of Roses Parade in Portland, Oregon, has been called off after the organizers received specific threats of violence from anarchist groups. An anonymous email included threats that, if the Multnomah County Republican Party was allowed to participate, their members would be forcibly removed by their large band of thugs. The email bragged: "You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely." This is a reference to the riots in Portland in November in which citizens were terrorized and millions of...

    Perhaps the most famous line from George Orwell’s classic satire on socialism, “Animal Farm,” is that which declares, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” If the following report on what House Republicans are doing with their Obamacare replacement bill holds true, then they have just turned Orwell’s words into action by granting themselves a privilege not extended to everyone else. However, while the left-leaning Vox seemed to imply that this is some sort of new and nefarious development by uncaring Republicans granting themselves special privileges, The American Spectator pointed out that Congress has long...

    Because sometimes the gig just doesn't work out. Remember when it appeared that, contra a certain U.S. president and his “JV team” talk, ISIS was going to overrun the entire Middle East with virtually no resistance? Remember the harrowing stories of Iraqis gathering on a mountaintop waiting for someone to come and rescue them before ISIS showed up and set them on fire or committed some other murderous atrocity? We all saw that horrific videos of ISIS beheading, burning and drowning people. These evil sadistic monsters clearly observed no lines of decency and respected only sheer, brute force. Anyone who...
  • President Trump’s First 100 Days in Office

    Epoch Times ^ | April 27, 2017 | Stephen Gregory
    President Donald Trump recently tweeted that evaluating a president after the first 100 days in office was a “ridiculous standard.” In fact, there is widespread agreement that looking back at the accomplishments of a president from the vantage point of the first 100 days is arbitrary. But there are reasons for the nation to want to take stock of this new administration early and often. Trump’s election was a response to a silent crisis in our country—silent because our political and media establishments failed to address it.
  • Seattle Gives City Workers Time Off to Attend Anti-Trump Protests

    Reason Magazine's Hit & Run Blog ^ | April 27, 2017 | Christian Britschgi, assistant editor
    The Seattle City Council passed a unanimous resolution this week which declares May 1 a "day of action" on which city employees are encouraged to attend planned anti-Trump protests instead of going to work. The resolution—drafted by Councilmember Kshama Sawant, a member of the Socialist Alternative party—instructs supervisors of city government departments to remind their workers that they are entitled to take two days of unpaid leave for "days of faith and conscience," and that attending Monday's protests is a legitimate use of this leave. Sawant's resolution goes on to stress to Seattleites that through strikes and civil disobedience they...

    The investigation into Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner has expanded into an investigation into the entire Abedin family. This is good news, as they are Islamic jihadists who have been working undercover along side Hillary Clinton for a very long time. Now they are being investigated. Huma is writing a tell-all book about her relationship with Hillary Clinton and her time on the Presidential campaign trail. She is seeking $2 million for post-campaign book, and she is meeting with literary agents at this time. Now, on to the Federal investigation of the Abedin family: U.S. Justice Department has been actively...

    A judge just declared taxpayers must give money to a city that refuses to enforce federal immigration law while at the same time refusing to give any redress for the family of dead Kate Steinle due to that same sanctuary city policy. Judge William Orrick, a legacy of the liberal gentry whose grandfather founded one of the big corporate law firms in San Francisco, whose father also sat on the federal bench (and the left complains of “nepotism”?), and who, according to Public Citizen, bundled nearly a quarter of a million for Obama’s campaigns, blocked Trump’s executive order defunding sanctuary...

    There are still budget battles and (probably) blockades from the 9th Circuit to come, but sooner or later the President is going to get some work started on the border wall. But if and when he does, California is laying some landmines in advance for any private contractors who dare to bid on the job and pour a single yard of concrete. In a move being dubbed, “Build it and be banned,” California legislators are proposing to impose a permanent ban for government contracts on any company who takes part in the project. And no… this is not an article...
  • Here's the rest of Trump's tax plan: Fewer brackets, lower rates, no more estate tax . . .

    And more! We told you yesterday about the Trump plan to reduce the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent, and to make a similar move on the repatriated profits tax. Later in the day, more detailed emerged about Trump’s larger tax proposal. Via CNBC, here are the high points: Trump’s plan will cut the number of income tax brackets from seven to three, with a top rate of 35 percent and lower rates of 25 percent and 10 percent. It is not clear what income ranges will fall under those brackets. It would also double the standard...

    'Trusted names in news are not trusted anymore' A couple of months ago, TMZ founder Harvey Levin met with Donald Trump at the White House. If you heard about it, you probably caught a whiff of the left-wing outrage it engendered. If the Trump-hating ideologues are to be believed, everyone who deals with Trump is a turncoat to the cause, the American people, and the human race.

    American Rattlesnake ^ | April 27, 2017 | Gerard Perry
    To the surprise of no one, an Obama bundler sitting on the 9th Circuit has enjoined Section 9(a) of President Trump’s executive order targeting sanctuary cities. Just like the federal judges who blocked previous, eminently Constitutional executive orders tackling this problem, this one used the non-textual statements of the President as justification for his actions. For those of you who would like a more detailed explanation of why using speeches, statements, and other non-statutory words by lawmakers and the executive branch to make law is such a bad idea, I’d recommend reading the late Justice Scalia’s A Matter Of Interpretation...

    The damage has been done, minds and opinions have been poisoned but the United Nations cannot continue to lend its name to this Study in its current form The United Nations Study titled “The Origins and Evolution of the Palestine Problem: 1917-1988” (“Study”) has coughed up yet another piece of false information following that exposed in my last article - which indicates increasingly that the United Nations has been complicit in disseminating false information on the Arab-Jewish conflict for almost the last forty years.

    ...some of our minds do reel at the measureless might of the so-called Elite. We marvel at their vaulting ambition, their utter ruthlessness, their influence, their war machines, and their godlike abilities with more money than some national governments. It’s been estimated that the Rothschilds, alone—said to be one of this vaunted International Elite—may control up to ten Trillion dollars worth of assets. And, by a further educative example, “With their current net worth, the Rockefeller family [of reputed Bilderberg fame] is considered as the 22nd richest family in the world in 2015.” Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly worth around...

    One of the key sticking points during negotiations to avoid a government shutdown on Friday was funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall — funding the Democrats refused even to consider. Trump had requested $1.4 billion to begin construction of the wall this year, but Democrats refused to let those funds be included in the budget request, even though it was a minuscule fraction of the federal budget, CNS reported. On the other hand, The Daily Caller reported that the Energy Transitions Commission, a group that includes former Vice President Al Gore, insisted that the world needed to invest $15...
  • The Enormous Contradictions Behind the Mass-Immigration Debate or How to Win Any Argument With Style

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    We have all heard the arguments and the figures relating to the benefits of mass-immigration from poorer countries to richer countries. The advocates have shown us “irrefutable figures” that detail the economic benefits; they have berated us for our lack of morality. And the sad truth is, the argument can never be won by throwing statistics and numbers back at them. Because numbers, as they know all too well, can be interpreted almost any way you wish. The only way to win is to show up their arguments for what they really are: weak veils for an agenda that is...

    Will the Left hold it hostage? The Trump administration unveiled an ambitious overhaul of federal tax laws yesterday that it is touting as the “largest tax cut for individuals and businesses in U.S. history. Republicans on Capitol Hill seem cautiously optimistic about the plan even though it was immediately attacked by the hateful class-warfare-mongering Left.

    Terrorist attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo? This horrific outcome seems to be the direction the United States is headed when Communist terrorists are able to dictate to universities what they can or cannot do in a “free society.” SAN JOSE, CA, — Ann Coulter will not deliver her speech at the “University” of California at Berkeley today. Just the threat of violent attacks upon the scheduled Coulter speech at UC Berkeley was enough to inhibit the First Amendment rights of Coulter and the student group that had arranged the event. Not an actual attack, but just the threat, obliterated...

President Donald Trump today signed an executive order to review national monument designations made under the Antiquities Act by former President Barack Obama.

The Washington Post has uncovered a transmittal letter dated February 2, 2017 from the UN Office of High Commissioner of Human Rights, forwarding to the then acting U.S. Secretary of State, Thomas Shannon, Jr., a complaint from one of the UN’s Special Rapporteurs about plans to repeal and replace...
