    For the past two years we have seen the emergence of a coherent Trump doctrine in both words and deeds. (Weekend Long Read) There is a remarkable consistency throughout all of President Trump’s speeches, formal documents (such as the National Security Strategy) and actions of the administration To understand the Trump doctrine, we must begin with candidate Trump’s first major speech on foreign policy on April 27, 2016 (thus even before the Indiana primary) to the Center for the National Interest at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. All the elements of the Trump doctrine are revealed in this maiden...
  • ‘We’ll kill their children & women’: Fury over black S. African politician’s call to kill whites

    South Africans are outraged after a recent speech by a local revolutionary socialist politician who called upon his followers to kill white people, including women, children, and even pets owned by whites. Andile Mngxitama, the leader and founder of pan-Africanist political party Black First Land First (BLF), has been repeatedly heard using harsh language to criticize white people. But this time his comments seem to have gone way overboard. Speaking at a rally in the city of Potchefstroom over the weekend he promised that “for every one black person we will kill five white people.” The politician was apparently referring...

    I thought I heard Rush say that the American Media (National Enquirer) payment to buy Karen McDougal's story and bury it occurred in 2014, before President Trump was even a candidate. If this is so, it would prove that the crimes Cohen pled to are not crimes. (And Mueller knows it.) Did anyone else hear this, adn can anyone provide a link?

    Washington, DC, has a serious rat problem on its hands, and it has little to do with the shady goings-on at some of the highest levels of government. No, we’re talking real, honest to god rat kings who are wreaking havoc on the nation’s capital. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the DC region is facing a serious problem with Rattus Norvegicus, or the brown rat, an infestation that’s being exacerbated by both a population spike as well as mild winters. With their numbers on the rise, DC now trails New York and Los Angeles for its rat population, the...

    Thousands have signed a petition calling for the judge in an ex-Baylor frat president’s rape case to resign or be removed from office after he accepted a plea deal that involved no jail time. On Monday, Judge Ralph Strother accepted the plea agreement for Jacob W. Anderson, a former Baylor student who was accused of raping a woman referred to as Donna Doe in 2016. As part of the deal, Anderson agreed to plea to a lesser charge of unlawful restraint and will not have to register as a sex offender. Strother and Assistant District Attorney Hilary LaBorde, who prosecuted...

    Have you ever hired a militant vegetarian chef to cook you a steak? Would you hire a pacifist as Commander-in-Chief during wartime? Or a 600 lb personal trainer to supervise your weight loss program? This is nothing against vegetarians, pacifists, or weight-challenged folks, by the way; it’s just a means of making a point: To get a job done, the person charged with implementing it MUST believe in it. It can't possibly go well if he doesn't, because the original outline will need details fleshed out. If the implementer doesn’t believe in it, he or she has practically no chance...

    Arrested three months before the defeat of Hitler’s Germany, his first reaction was like that of the millions he would later write about: “Me? What for?” A decorated captain of an artillery battery that had fought its way deep into East Prussia, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was at the time a committed Marxist-Leninist. He even fantasized he was being whisked to a meeting with Stalin. In fact, military censors had read his letter exchanges with a boyhood friend, also in the army, in which they criticized Stalin (“the mustachioed one”) for having deviated from the path laid down by Lenin. It was...

    Ballot harvesting: “We’re offering this service, but only for people who are supporting the Democratic Party” The activity in the video below is called “ballot harvesting,” and it’s 100% legal in California, where this was filmed.The state sends ballots to every registered voter. When people engage in “ballot harvesting,” they go to voters’ houses, offer to “help” them fill in their ballot, and then offer to mail their ballot for them.At 0:43 in this video, the woman who is doing the “ballot harvesting” says:“We’re offering this service, but only for people who are supporting the Democratic Party”I don’t know if that...

    Ousted FBI Director James Comey’s ties to the Clinton Foundation and the conflicts of interest that lie there are too close to not raise red flags. James Comey worked several years in the public and private sector. Comey served as general counsel at Lockheed Martin until 2010 when he departed with over $6 million to show for it. That same year Lockheed Martin became a member of the Clinton Global Initiative and “won 17 contracts from the U.S. State Department, which was led by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,” Big League Politics reports.

    Reflections on the anniversary of the first ratification convention’s conclusion… On December 7, 1787, at Elizabeth Battel's Golden Fleece Tavern in Dover, Delaware, the state of Delaware became the first state to ratify the new Constitution of the United States, and did so by a unanimous vote of thirty to zero. With such an auspicious beginning, we might think that national ratification would be a foregone conclusion, but ... no such luck. As easy a decision as it was for some states, it was a very difficult one for others. We think there are huge differences between the states today...

Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a “very, very large brain” idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.

    Amidst the lavish praise for the late president, George H.W. Bush, allow me to offer a contrarian view. As we learned from the funeral of the non-president, John McCain, the leftist media has rarely met an ineffective Republican politician they didn’t want to celebrate when he passed, no matter what they’d said about him during his time here on Earth. In the interests of “bipartisanship,” “comity,” and “civility,” the years the dearly departed moved among us are seen retrospectively as a kind of Golden Age, when Republicans lost graciously to the designated Democrat, whether as a first-time candidate or (even...

    In California, bottle recycling is mandatory, except when it’s illegal California requires people to recycle their empty bottles.However, this recent news article from the Merced Sun-Star says that three people have been charged with “recycling fraud” in California, because the bottles they recycled were “smuggled” into California from Arizona. The bottles from both states are physically identical to each other, but the price paid for the bottles is higher in California than in Arizona.In the private sector, this kind of behavior is completely legal, and it’s called “arbitrage.” This is what wikipedia says about it:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ArbitrageArbitrageIn economics and finance, arbitrage is the...

Civil war is not impossible. Despite the fact that we’re emulsified, red and blue living side by side (but not in harmony), civil war is not impossible. It’s just not the civil war we’ve read about in history books, the stories of the grey and the blue and neat armies on the field....

    I think the election is finally over—or are Democrats still finding “lost” votes underneath couch cushions in Florida and California??—and while most of us are looking ahead now to the holiday season, liberals and the media are looking forward to the celebration of their secular Lord and Savior and Messiah, Saint Robert Mueller. While the chimney stocking named “Collusion” looks to end up with a lump of coal, Dancer and Prancer (Jerrold Nadler and Maxine Waters) are are gearing up for the 12 days of Mueller.
