    The latest election of some of the world's worst human rights abusing countries to serve on the Council does not hold out any hope of real reform The United Nations General Assembly on Monday elected 15 member states to the UN Human Rights Council for the 2018-2020 term, including such notorious human rights abusers as Qatar, Angola, Pakistan, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Member states considered eligible for membership on the Human Rights Council are theoretically supposed to be able to demonstrate their commitment to the highest standards of human rights and their full cooperation with all...

    According to a poll conducted by Politico and Morning Consult, nearly half of American voters distrust the media’s reporting on President Trump and his administration. Not only that, but they believe journalists deliberately fabricate stories about Trump. More surprising, it’s not just Republicans or Trump supporters who believe this.

    Handmade, bootleg 1911 pistols are all the rage in the Philippines. Illegal gunsmith families crank out these pistols in secrecy. This video shows us how bootleg 1911 pistols are made and distributed in the black market in the Philippines.. In a video by Underworld Inc., we learn what a real ghost gun is. In the Philippines, whole families are employed to illegally manufacture Colt Model 1911 pistol clones. They work in hidden workshops with crude tools to turn out descent pistols for paying customers. Their work is surprisingly good, and they do this to feed their families. Buyers line up...

    CBS’ and Fox’s projected earnings will suffer a hit, according to two separate reports by Credit Suisse, and falling NFL ratings will continue to impact network earnings so long as they are on a downward trend. Why are earnings suffering? CBS’ crashing NFL ratings will directly impact company earnings, Omar Sheikh, Credit Suisse analyst, said. Special: 3 foods to avoid in 2017 “We expect third-quarter network advertising to decline 3 percent (previously +1 percent), driven by soft ratings for both the summer schedule and for the start of the NFL season,” Sheikh said, according to CNBC. “With only one of...

    Sir Winston Churchill: “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” French physicist Blaise Pascal once wrote, “This letter is long because I hadn’t the time to make it short.” Even though Pascal’s comment seems contradictory, it isn’t, as demonstrated in great short stories that have withstood the test of time by delivering essential elements — time, place, setting, plot, and characters — in a minimum of words.

    State of our great State, its present discourteous political discourse and this precedent set by the Democrats in 2017’s legislative session, it would be only fair and appropriate that their cries of anguish about bias and fairness go unanswered Elected Republicans represent nearly a third of California’s legislators, but are only getting 18 percent of their bills passed, for eventual consideration by Gov. Jerry Brown. This is despite the fact that they represent nearly 40 percent of the voters who cast ballots in the last election. And even worse, Brown so far has only approved about 16.5 percent of Republican...

    My brother Jerry is a deacon in his all-black church. Jerry called to tell me he confronted his pastor, telling him it is unchristian to include a hateful rant against Trump in every sermon. His pastor firmly believes Trump is a rabid racist. I asked Jerry, "What was your pastor's response?" Jerry said his pastor gave him the same blank stare he always receives from fellow blacks when he states commonsense views that are contrary to Democrat lies believed by that most blacks. Condescendingly, Jerry's pastor said he understood his concerns. Meanwhile, his attacks on Trump from the pulpit continue....

    A Slide Fire bump stock in action. (Photo: Slide Fire/Facebook) The association representing current and former ATF employees has pushed back against critics blaming the agency for approving bump stocks. The ATF Association said the agency “does not have the legal authority to regulate” bump stocks, which allow semi-auto rifles to mimic full-auto fire. “The bump slide, and several other similar after-market accessories that increase the rate at which a shooter can pull the trigger, are engineered to avoid regulation under Federal law,” said Michael Bouchard, ATFA president, in an open letter last week. “The notion that ATF chose not...

    British journalist Andy Marr went there. The BBC presenter on Sunday hammered Hillary Clinton in a way that most American reporters wouldn’t dare. After asking her about the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Marr didn’t let this bit of hypocrisy go unchecked from the presidential candidate: “We recognize that this kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics.” After Clinton suggested that women need to “stand” against abuse from men, Marr shot back: “This depends on women coming forward and having the courage to come forward. And yet in your book, the three women brought onto stage by...

    U.S. adults disregard potential negative impact of Amazon's presence Time is running out for cities to submit their bids to become Amazon.com Inc.’s second home. The tech giant announced plans last month to open up a second headquarters — and its hunt for a host city. Bids from metropolitan areas are due Thursday. There are plenty of willing contestants: Mayors across the country have launched viral-worthy campaigns enticing Amazon to choose their cities, with the winner set to be announced sometime in 2018. A Sept. 29-Oct. 1 Morning Consult survey found that 72 percent of a national sample of 2,201...

    What Progressives Really Want- They Are All Grubers Newt Gingrich in his excellent book Understanding Trump has used Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s formulation of IYI (Intelligent Yet Idiot) to describe the class of Elitists, intellectuals and “experts” who typify the heavily credentialed but mostly incompetent policy charlatans, intellectual shamans and academic planners against whom the Tea Party, Brexit, and Trump/Make America Great Again movements have reacted. This is a very useful observation and a good starting point if you want to really understand who Progressives are and what they want. In the most general sense, they want to rule us and...

    President Donald Trump said Monday his administration will start to consider reforming the welfare system in the United States, saying that some people are "taking advantage of the system." The comment comes as the Trump administration struggles to get any sweeping legislation through Congress, despite Republicans controlling both the House and Senate. Trump failed to pass health care reform earlier this year and is currently working -- without much success so far -- to pass tax reform. "People are taking advantage of the system and then other people aren't receiving what they really need to live and we think it...

    After taking a week to slam alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, NBC’s Saturday Night Live poured great detail into a skit that mocked White House adviser and first female campaign manager to win a presidential election, Kellyanne Conway as a loon and for her makeup. In a skit resembling the hit movie remake of Stephen King’s “IT,” comedian Alex Moffat played CNN’s Anderson Cooper who was being lured into the sewer by his co-star Kate McKinnon, who played Kellyanne Conway. After Moffat chased a piece of paper floating down the street and into a storm drain, McKinnon, done up to...
