    The teen suspects who were wanted for three murders in Canada confessed to their crimes and said they planned to kill more people in a video recorded not long before the two died by suicide, police said. Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, showed "no remorse for their actions" and expressed "their intentions to potentially kill others" in the video, which was found on a digital camera, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner Kevin Hackett said at a press conference Friday. The bodies of McLeod and Schmegelsky were found Aug. 7 in the province of Manitoba. They were the...

    A Chinese government panel recently invited gun control activists from the United States, along with diplomats and human rights activists for a hearing in Beijing on gun violence in the U.S. In an article that appeared Wednesday on China’s state-run Global Times, China’s Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) conducted a hearing to determine whether the U.S. is safe enough for Chinese students and companies to continue their respective studies and business transactions within the U.S. The article describes how Chinese human rights groups are also considering various efforts against the U.S. for what they have identified as...

    People in the US are now the world’s wealthiest citizens, just ahead of the Swiss, a new global report shows. The average net financial assets of people living in the US total €184,411 (around 202,900 Swiss francs) per capita against €173,838 for Switzerland, according to the latest Global Wealth Report published by German insurer Allianz. The rise of the US to the top of the rankings is thanks in no small part to the strength of the US dollar, the report states. While the US took top spot in the report, Switzerland continues to boast the highest gross financial assets...

    Team USA saw its 58-game winning streak in international tournaments featuring NBA players end Wednesday with an 89-79 loss to France in the quarterfinals of the FIBA World Cup in Dongguan, China, ensuring USA Basketball cannot medal. Team USA’s last loss with NBA players on its roster came against Greece in the semifinals of the 2006 world championships. The Americans rebounded to win gold at the Beijing Olympics two years later and also won the two Olympic tournaments that followed. They already had qualified for next year’s Summer Games in Tokyo. The composition of Team USA’s roster at those Olympics...

    The Tenth Amendment Center ^ | January 8, 2016 | Mike Maharrey
    The American Founding generation fought a long, bloody war to free themselves from a tyrannical government, only to see the people eventually embrace the very system they struggled to throw off.That may seem like a stinging indictment, but careful examination of U.S. governance today reveals that it rests on essentially the same philosophical foundation as the 18th century British system Americans rejected.The founding generation developed a brand new conception of government, resting it on the consent of the governed and the idea that governing institutions must operate within constitutional constraints. Today, we still see the vestiges of those founding ideals...

    Pope Francis Says It’s an ‘Honor’ to be Criticized by Americans His throwaway remark, made in connection with a new book that claims influential American Catholics want him to step down, generated surprise aboard the papal flight today to Mozambique. ON THE PAPAL PLANE — A quip by Pope Francis aboard the papal plane this morning raised a few eyebrows of those traveling with him — and sent his press handlers scrambling. After takeoff on his way to the Mozambique capital of Maputo, the Pope customarily greeted journalists on the papal plane. Among those he met was Nicolas Seneze, Rome correspondent...

    Journal of the American Revolution ^ | August 29, 2019 | Nancy Bradeen Spannaus
    Put yourself, in your mind’s eye, back in June 1776, specifically, the period between June 7 and July 1. It is precisely at that time that one of the most crucial political battles in the history of the American republic was fought—the battle over whether the American colonists would, as thirteen united colonies, declare independence to the world. Without that bold step—which put every outspoken leader, national or local, at risk of prison or death—the United States of America would never have been born.Yet the chief leaders of the American Revolution had a serious problem. Despite the broad support for...
  • The Treasury Department Is Wrong. China Didn’t Just Devalue Its Currency.

    The Daily Signal ^ | August 13, 2019 | Riley Walters
    The U.S. Treasury Department has incorrectly labeled China a manipulator of its currency. An important distinction exists between devaluing a currency and currency depreciation. Devaluing implies the People’s Bank of China actively manipulated the value of the Chinese renminbi to gain unfair advantage for its exports. Depreciation simply means the renminbi has lost purchasing power relative to the U.S. dollar, based on market forces. There’s no indication that China is actively devaluing its currency. However, according to the Treasury Department, China met a broad definition of manipulation laid out in the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988, which says...

    Earlier this month, the Washington Post featured an op-ed entitled “I am an uppity immigrant. Don’t expect me to be ‘grateful,’” by New York University professor Suketu Mehta, an author who recently published a book arguing that “immigration is a form of reparations” for past American crimes. In the article, Mehta accuses America of stealing “the futures of the people who are now arriving at its borders,” of causing many immigrants “to move in the first place,” and of “despoil[ing] their homelands and mak[ing] them unsafe and unlivable.” He censures the West for “despoil[ing] country after country through colonialism,...

    The Daily Signal ^ | August 9, 2019 | Derek Hosford and Tori Whiting
    The United States is not doing enough to promote free trade and the elimination of trade barriers around the world. In fact, it’s doing just the opposite and imposing barriers on billions of dollars’ worth of imports. As a result, new trade restrictions implemented by World Trade Organization member countries have reached historic highs. Over the last two review periods, new trade restrictions totaled $588.3 billion and $339.5 billion, respectively. For the previous two periods, new trade restrictions totaled roughly $100 billion or less. The latest figures present a worrisome and unpredictable climate that is harming the overall health of...

    What's the point at which rhetoric forces action? When do words become incitement? At what point do political attacks get so reckless and unhinged that you can no longer heal the divide they create with politics? It's hard to know exactly, but the left is getting very close. Take, for example, this exchange on MSNBC, in which frequent guest Malcolm Nance accuses the president of the United States of sending secret messages to neo-Nazis: "These people feel that they are the foot soldiers and executors of the disenfranchisement that the white race is feeling, and Donald Trump is giving them...

    The American flag has become a symbol of resistance against China in the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, prominently waved throughout the city this past weekend as police fired tear gas and rubber bullets into the peaceful crowds.Millions of Hong Kong residents have participated in rallies since early June against a bill proposed in the city’s legislature that would have allowed China to extradite anyone present in Hong Kong by accusing him or her of breaking Chinese law. Under the “One Country, Two Systems” policy China agreed to when the U.K. handed Hong Kong over in 1997, Hong Kong must...

    In the face of Iran’s continued development of long-range missiles, Israel and the United States completed a series of tests of the long-range Arrow 3 ballistic missile defense system at the Pacific Spaceport Complex-Alaska (PSCA) in Kodiak, Alaska, which included the successful interception of an “enemy” target. The series of tests over the course of 10 days saw three successful interceptions. It was the first time that such a test took place outside of Israel. The successful test was attended by Israel’s ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer. The system was tested against targets similar in behavior to advanced ballistic...

    The foundational rupture in the tectonic plates of Western civilization is the breakage along the fault line of truth. The very concept of truth as we have known and inherited it is a Judeo-Christian concept. Germany became a post-Christian nation after its seminaries and universities rejected the Scriptures as God’s perfect, revealed truth. The United States has become a post-Christian nation after its best seminaries and universities—founded as teaching centers for the Word of God—rejected Scripture as God’s perfect, revealed truth. As American culture drifts further and further from anything Christian, the pressure to abandon the authority of the Bible...

    America and its Judeo/ Christian heritage have been used mightily by Almighty God in the promotion of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. No nation to the present has been such a vehicle in the hands of Almighty God in reaching countless millions for Christ. The United States has been the chief restrainer of evil and aggression in this oppressive, tyrannical world for the last 100 years, and the last bastion of freedom also to the oppressed. The USA stands in the way of Satan’s global ambitions of a unified “base” humanity that will worship him and...

    President Trump made a surprise appearance at a wedding reception Saturday night that took place at his New Jersey golf club, prompting the bride, groom and attendees to break into chants of “USA! USA!” Video circulating on social media Sunday showed Trump walk out to the reception and the bride and groom rush over to join him. The crowd then erupted in the patriotic chant. Groom P.J. Mongelli later told CNN that Trump showing up at the wedding “was a complete and utter surprise.” He said that he and his then-fiancée Nicole Marie Mongelli sent Trump multiple invitations to...

    It’s a good thing Nike was not around during the American Revolution. If the ciphers who run the shoe company were in charge back then we’d all be bowing to Queen Elizabeth and carrying Prince William’s luggage around, which includes Meghan Markle, the Duchesse of Essex, Sussex, Middlesex, Wessex and Whatever. Blimey, these blokes are so bad that they can’t even stand up for the American flag, let alone to the fuzzy- brained Colin Kaepernick, who is doing for Nike what he did for the San Francisco 49ers: help them lose.
