    Previously, when people scoffed at the idea of language as being an important building block of civilized social structure I would simply roll my eyes. These days… not so much. We’ve covered more than a few stories here about special snowflakes on college campuses or writers at Alt-Left publications demanding this or that change to the English (or more properly “American”) language to accommodate “transgender” sensitivities. As has happened all too often across the span of history, it’s easy enough to simply mock these trends and wait for them to die off like the fad of swallowing live goldfish or...

    In an article I wrote posted on Feb. 25, I detailed how there’s been an unprecedented number of sex trafficking arrests since President Donald Trump was sworn into office. Yet the mainstream media has completely ignored this major story. The initial wave of arrests did not involve high-profile persons or government officials. However, that’s changed. Recently, there have been high-profile people arrested for sex trafficking including authority figures. And now, in a bombshell interview Dr. Phil did with a sex trafficking victim – who was sold into an elite international pedophile ring – she claimed that members of the FBI...

    Trump Wasn't Shown Up by the Health Care Rejection; The simpletons who are gloating that the rejection of the Health Care Repeal and Replace legislation shows that Trump is no longer a master at the Art of the Deal seem to overlook one simple fact. Every deal with a chance of closing has to have two parties with open minds who WANT a deal. Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton got things done because they had negotiating partners. The Democrats until the end refused to even consider a deal on the Trump-Ryan health care repeal and replace bill, which required the...

    On a Saturday morning in Dallas, Texas, my daughter and I decided to eat breakfast out. My grandson mentioned pancakes, so my daughter decided on a Denny's that was reasonably close, at 4567 Frankford Road. It took about five minutes to load up a one year old and a two year old into the car, in the proper car seats, and another five minutes to drive to the restaurant. On the way in, I noticed the 30.07 sign that banned open carry in the restaurant. The 30.07 sign is required by Texas law, if a private property owner decides...

    For decades, U.S. companies have been chasing cheap labor offshore and then importing products to sell in the U.S. market. Now, Trumponomics, a broader focus on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO quantifies all relevant costs, risks and strategic factors) and advanced manufacturing together have the potential to end the manufacturing stagnation of the past 30 years and create millions of manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Over the past 20 years, the boom in offshoring drove our goods trade deficit up by about $640 billion a year, costing us three to four million manufacturing jobs....

    The Nebraska Democratic Party has no problem with refugees being settled in their state. In fact, they’re so excited about refugees coming to the Cornhusker State that they’re giving each refugee their own “welcoming basket.” According to the Conservative Review, the welcome baskets include essential items like diapers, kitchen utensils, toilet paper, dishes, towels, blankets, small appliances — oh, and a voter registration form. In a video posted earlier this month, Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb explained that her party decided to put the baskets together after President Donald Trump issued his “racist travel ban” in late January.

Zheng Huiwang has been imprisoned at Baoding prison in Hebei Province since 2008 for merely practicing a form of traditional Chinese meditation, Falun Gong.

    Years of Democratic leadership abetted by a sycophantic media have done enormous damage to New Orleans When you read about the worst cities in the United States you’ll find that they all share a common characteristic: each has been under Democratic leadership for decades. Most of you have read horror stories about some of these cities; Detroit, Cleveland, Birmingham, St. Louis, and New Orleans. In many ways, the deterioration of these cities is a microcosm of what’s gone wrong with our nation. As the 1970s drew to a close, I decided to move to New Orleans. Media at that time...

    Her whole life is a break Earlier this week, you probably saw a story about Chelsea Clinton receiving a lifetime achievement award. The Hill ran it with some dubious language, and many people missed the fact that it was an award from “Lifetime” the television network. Failing to capitalize the “L” led to a firestorm about privilege, and how a woman who has achieved virtually nothing could be granted and award for her non-existent achievements. Carefull reading spared some of us who are inclined to agree with that sentiment.

One night in 1946, four or five men with leather coats and caps barged into their house and grabbed the whole family. The family was planning to escape to Palestine the very next day. “They put my brother’s shoes on me,” Trien remembered. He was four years older. “They were so big.”...

A team of researchers developed the drug after discovering a key signalling process in DNA repair and cell ageing. During trials on mice, the team found that the drug directly repaired DNA damage caused by radiation exposure or old age. 'The cells of the old mice were indistinguishable from the young mice after just one week of treatment,' said lead author Professor...

    <p>In August 2015 viewers of the first Republican primary debate could be forgiven for thinking that Donald Trump was finished. “You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” the moderator, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, said to him. “You once told a ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?” Trump didn’t act contrite, or statesmanlike, as conventional candidates might have done. Instead, he interrupted Kelly with another nasty dig, about Rosie O’Donnell, and volunteered that he’d probably insulted others, too. Many pundits proclaimed that the response cemented Trump’s unelectability.</p>

    Men ruin everything. And liberals ruin everything. So, if you do the math, you'll see that liberal men ruin everything like twicely or something. (Math was never really my subject. Or Grammar.) But it seems now that liberals and men are hell bent on destroying women's sports. Just a few decades after the liberal agenda gave us Title IX which demanded that educational institutions offer just as many scholarships for women's sport as they do men's sports, now liberals are demanding that men can call themselves women and that will effectively eradicate women's sports. You see, the first thing took...

    It is the media’s responsibility to hold Trump accountable for keeping his promises to the American people, instead of working to undermine his policies President Donald Trump fared much better in the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Monday than the left-wing, establishment media would have you believe. The American Spectator’s George Neumayr captured the essence of the findings: “…the core claim underlying Trump’s tweets is true: people acting on the authority of Obama opened an investigation into Trump’s campaign, then criminally leaked mention of it to friendly news outlets in an attempt to derail his election. When is Obama going...

    Throughout history, intellectuals have been frequent targets of tyrannical regimes to suppress political dissent. But Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong himself boasted about taking it a step further. After the Chinese Communist Party took power in 1949, Mao had instilled a climate a fear and terror. In the late 1940s to early 1950s, he mobilized Chinese peasants to kill off the landlord class, resulting in estimates of hundreds of thousands to several million deaths. In some areas, public trials became the norm and Mao’s politicized peasants became judge, jury, and executioner of the landlord class in China. Amid the repressive...
  • Some Artists Are Actually Focusing on Beauty Again

    There’s a group of artists who most of the general public has yet to know exist. These are highly skilled painters, sculptors, and draftsmen trained in ateliers or academies who are not embarrassed to utter the word “beautiful” at a time when that word is generally scorned by the contemporary art establishment. You’ll hardly ever see their works in major museums or at major galleries for longer than a short stint. Most of their works are whisked away by private collectors or are sitting in their studios, waiting to be discovered. These artists value quality over quantity, sincerity over cynicism,...

    It's not quite what Trump's tweet seemed to suggest, unless . . . Here’s a pattern you’ve probably noticed about the way the media deals with President Trump. When his literal words might be off target but his meaning can be justified, his literal words are all that matters. But when his literal words turn out to be accurate . . . well, that’s not what he meant! Did the Obama Administration wiretap Trump Tower? Or were there some other form of FISA surveillance that Trump clumsily described as a wiretap in a very specific building? We’ve already dealt with...

    Make it your legacy, President Trump. There’s no better one that guarantees the security of Western Society David Rockefeller left Mother Earth to meet his Master on Monday, but his legacy for a United Nations-led One World Order lives on. It was an $8.5 million Rockefeller gift that paid for New York City UN headquarters, built on the site of a former animal abattoir, and like some who claim their houses are haunted, there are those who swear you can still hear the woeful sounds of frightened animals being led to slaughter coming from Turtle Bay.
  • How Mao Radicalized Peasants to Kill Landlords

    The word for today is “classicide,” which means “extermination of a class” rather than ethnicity, race, or religion. The term is aptly applied to an unknown, under-reported period in Chinese history that started in the late 1940s and ended in the early 1950s. Right before Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong took power, a Mao associate in 1948 proclaimed the Communist Party’s intent: “30,000,000 landlords and rich peasants will have to be destroyed.” Mao, unlike the Soviets—who used NKVB/KGB forces to carry out political persecutions—mobilized the Chinese peasantry itself to kill landlords and other perceived privileged classes. It came in...

    There has been a proliferation of safe spaces for identity politics groups, based on race or illegal alien status, that claim to be oppressed. Much of this oppression involves microaggressions. But there isn’t much interest in macroaggression, according to the College Fix. Of the 12 students interviewed by the Manitou Messenger, several have been violently threatened because of their political beliefs, and almost all of them feel as though they can’t speak up about politics on campus – in class, online or with their friends. …

    No. Rob brought you some first-rate Dianne Feinstein insanity yesterday, but you realize the week is young, right? I sometimes get frustrated with conservatives who treat Supreme Court nominations as if they are nothing more than a means to stop abortions - not that this isn’t important, but you’d think the federal courts do nothing that matters aside from deciding whether Roe v. Wade will stand or fall. But let’s be fair here: Democrats are every bit as obsessed with this if not more so. Even if they’re only doing it to check a box with their most ardent pro-abortion...
