    If hypocrisy had monetary value we could easily pay off the national debt with the righteous indignation being expressed by Democrats over the so-called revelation that then candidate Donald Trump paid off a couple of women to not tell the world they allegedly had affairs with him 12 years ago. Unfortunately, hypocrisy has no value beyond exposing the people who engage in it, so we’re stuck with $21-plus trillion in debt and a political party desperately trying to lose an argument they’ve already won. I was in college during the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, but remember it like it...

    The French government on Sunday (Dec 9) urged Mr Donald Trump not to interfere in French politics after the US president posted tweets about the protests rocking the country and attacked the Paris climate agreement. "We do not take domestic American politics into account and we want that to be reciprocated," Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told LCI television. "I say this to Donald Trump and the French president says it too: leave our nation be.

    Jackie Chan might be the most famous Chinese person alive, playing the righteous action hero fighting villains in countless films that have put Hong Kong on the world map. But the actor’s changing political stances and his failure to stand up for the interests of the city that brought him fame and fortune make him a hypocrite in the eyes of many Hongkongers. Worst of all is Chan’s decision to feed children he doesn’t know, through his donations to Unicef, instead of providing for his estranged daughter Etta Ng Chok-lam. He has forced her to inherit the abandonment and trauma...

    TRENTON — A top official in the administration of Gov. Philip D. Murphy described in wrenching testimony on Tuesday the lack of urgency among aides to the governor after she accused a member of Mr. Murphy’s campaign of sexual assault. The emotional narrative marked the first day of legislative hearings into how Mr. Murphy’s administration has handled a case that threatens to thwart his ambitious agenda and cast a stain over his progressive image. The official, Katie Brennan, spoke slowly and sternly as she detailed her allegations against Albert J. Alvarez, whom she accused of sexually assaulting her after a...

    Fake News: Since the passing of former President George H. W. Bush, the so-called “mainstream media” has come out in praise of the man and his leadership, but it wasn’t always that way. In fact, in the 1980s and early 1990s, when Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bush were in office, the Leftist mainstream media was vicious, accusatory, and lacking in any praise whatsoever — just like they are today when it comes to POTUS Donald Trump. The reason? Republican presidents don’t get a pass like Democrat presidents do. And talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh called them out for their “phony”...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — The mayor of Mexico’s quaint colonial city of Guanajuato has taken a drubbing after he criticized low-spending tourists, saying, “We want the type of visitor who spends more.” Mayor Alejandro Navarro said this week that tourists from nearby Mexican cities often arrive in cheap bus tour packages, bringing their own food. He blamed them for creating trash and traffic problems. Social media users quickly mocked Navarro, posting fake road signs reading “Welcome to Guanajuato, no food or beverage allowed.” By Wednesday, Navarro was forced to post a taped apology on his Twitter account, saying, “Everyone is...

    The Florida Democratic Party made a post-election bid to "cure" defective ballots in the hope that a court would order these ballots to be counted in contradiction to state law. Chair of the Party, Terrie Rizzo explained that "it's only after all the legally compliant votes have been counted that we know how close the election was and whether it's worth the effort to try to get non-compliant ballots counted. With Republicans holding slim leads it was our assessment that bending the rules in the hope that a friendly judge would reward our effort seemed warranted." Meanwhile, defeated Sen. Bill...
  • Charitable Giving by Nations

    Macron's comments about nationalism: “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying our interests first ... we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace, and what is essential: its moral values." Macron's premise seems to be that loving one's nation and putting its interests first is somehow synonymous with selfishly turning ones back on the rest of the world. Arguably, charitable giving is a valuable index of how much a nation and its people care about the rest of the world. The link is to a...

    The woman who claimed to write an anonymous letter accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of raping her in his car has admitted that she lied. Judy Munro-Leighton turned out to be a left-wing activist who admitted that she did it because she was angry. She has never met Justice Kavanaugh. That’s a pretty clear contradiction to the liberal chorus that women never lie about sexual assault. "Women don’t want to call attention to themselves that way,” they say. “That means they should always be believed,” is their refrain. Munro-Leighton admitted that she did it for the attention. It’s no wonder that...

    he fake news media has made it official. Criticizing George Soros, an anti-Semite and alleged Nazi collaborator, is anti-Semitic. The Washington Post alone ran two dishonest screeds, “Conspiracy Theories about Soros Aren't Just False, They're Anti-Semitic” and “A Conspiracy Theory about George Soros and a Migrant Caravan Inspired Horror.” The former comes from Talia Lavin, a former New Yorker fact checker who had to resign after falsely claiming that a wheelchair bound ICE agent’s Afghanistan platoon tattoo was Nazi insignia. Seeing her potential for smearing people, Media Matters hired her as a “researcher” on “far-right extremism”. What wasn’t good enough...

    State lawmakers launching an investigation into how Gov. Phil Murphy's team handled a rape allegation against a former senior official must not use survivors as "spectacles for public consumption," according to a letter signed by 60 of the governor's female supporters who are questioning the motives behind the inquiry. The letter was sent to the 120 members of the state Legislature Monday before they were expected to vote to form a committee examining the response by law enforcement and Murphy senior staffers to the rape allegation against Albert J. Alvarez, a senior campaign staffer later hired as the Schools Development...

    This is not a defense of Megyn Kelly. This is a defense of sanity. If you’ve not watched the six-minute or so segment that’s the heart and soul of what’s being used to show Kelly as a racist, stop reading, go back and watch — because the headlines and stories and criticisms that have come like pelting hail upon her head have little to do with truth and everything to do with misinformation. Here’s a sample: “Megyn Kelly Doesn’t Think Blackface Halloween Costumes Are A Big Deal,” blasted one headliner to the “Breakfast Club’s Donkey of the Day” YouTube clip....

    In his youth, Herschel Walker’s freakish athleticism allowed him to channel a quiet rage that allowed him to excel in football, bobsledding, sprinting and mixed martial arts. Walker, now 56, isn’t quite the athletic marvel that he was when he was in his 20s, but that doesn’t mean that fire in his belly is gone. Unfortunately for Don Lemon, Walker is directing every last bit of his fire toward the CNN host after a controversial segment Tuesday on Kanye West’s visit to the White House. Lemon, along with political commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer, sparked outrage with comments about...

    And so our fiery national nightmare is over. For now. But only a Pollyanna would think peace is about to break out across the bloody political and cultural battlefields. We are a long way from fixing what was shattered and retrieving what has been lost. There were many causes and events on the long road that brought us to this low place, but a telling moment took place almost exactly two years ago. It was the final debate of the presidential campaign, held on Oct. 19, 2016. Here is how The New York Times began its slanted coverage: “In a...

    The Washington Post’s continued labeling of blogger Jennifer Rubin as a “conservative” in the years since she has repeatedly rejected conservative ideas and principles is an example of why the American people are unable to trust the media, more than three dozen top conservative leaders say.“In truth, it is nearly impossible to discern any conservatism in Rubin’s contemporary writing,” the leaders said in an October 3 letter to the Washington Post editorial board. Citing the rejection of her previous positions on climate change, gun control, Middle East foreign policy, tax cuts, immigration, and abortion, the group said the notion that...

    In 1968, on the eve of the presidential election, Lyndon Johnson found out that Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger were actively working to stop his administration from concluding a peace deal with the North Vietnamese. Nixon didn’t want that kind of October surprise to shift the election to Johnson’s vice president, Hubert Humphrey. Unfortunately for LBJ, he couldn’t reveal that kind of political hanky-panky because he found out about it by illegally wiretapping the Nixon campaign. In 1980, rumors were rampant that the Reagan campaign had actively worked to ensure that Iran wouldn’t give back the American hostages right before...

    At 1 p.m. on Monday, supporters of the women who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault walked out of their homes and workplaces. The national walkout was promoted partially in response to the backlash these and other women face when going public with stories of sexual assault and rape. The anti-sexual-harassment organization Times Up tweeted on Sunday that “WOMEN MUST BE HEARD” in a “MOMENT OF SOLIDARITY” with Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. It urged people to wear black and leave wherever they are in protest, using the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors on social media. In...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the college professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her at a drunken party in somebody's house near a park sometime in the early 1980s when both were high school students, has been resisting Republican requests for her to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) insists that "the Republican demand that it is the accuser's responsibility to tell her story to them is an attempt to silence her. Christine has already done her part to put the ball in play with her accusation. It is now Kavanaugh's job to...
