    Antifa had been attacking us all night. They were arrested for beating and robbing a reporter. Antifa ambushed Proud Boys on their way home and threw a glass bottle of urine at them (they had been throwing them all night). Max and Geoff happily took them up on their offer and ran up to them. Max pulled off their masks while Geoff punched them. At first, antifa were winning. They kicked Proud Boys on the ground. Then John showed up and bowled them over. Proud Boys won the fight and stopped immediately. The police asked antifa if they wanted to...

    n 2019, it should not be a controversial opinion to say that a seven-year-old boy shouldn’t be forced into transitioning into a girl. It shouldn’t be, yet we all find ourselves right here (see Transgenders ‘Detransitioning’ on the Rise. And the LGBTQ Community Isn’t Helping. and Father Shares Heartbreaking Story of Son Who’s ‘Transitioning.’ And He’s Powerless to Stop It.). A jury just ruled against a father trying to stop his son’s mother from turning the boy into “Luna.” Oh, so this is happening in the United Kingdom? No. Oh so this is happening in Canada, Justin Trudeau’s land of...

    The author of an anonymous column in the New York Times in 2018, who was identified as a senior Trump administration official acting as part of the “resistance” inside the government, has written a tell-all book to be published next month. The book, titled “A Warning,” is being promoted as “an unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency” that expands upon the Times column, which ricocheted around the world and stoked the president’s rage because of its devastating portrayal of Trump in office. The column described Trump’s leadership style as “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective,” and noted that “his impulsiveness...

    Last week’s viral photograph of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointing her finger at President Trump and reading him the riot act reflected a larger reality: If Trump won’t responsibly lead the nation, Pelosi will. The president has pretty much ceased being president. Trump never really seemed to enjoy the job, except for ceremonial tasks like handing out medals. I’d be surprised if he could name every member of his Cabinet, and I’d be shocked if he had the foggiest idea of what, say, Secretary Elaine Chao has been up to over at the Department of Transportation. Does anyone imagine that...

    Several Democrats – including a handful of 2020 candidates – lambasted President Trump for describing the Democrat-led impeachment effort as a political “lynching,” calling the president’s words “despicable and disgusting,” and accusing him of being a “white supremacist.” Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to slam the Democrat-led impeachment effort, calling on Republicans to “remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching.” “So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember...
