  • Anti-Democratic Body Slam May Save Democracy in USA

    Finally motivates “liberals” to slam and eliminate – or at least cut back – early voting Body slamming a reporter is a reprehensible anti-democratic act, but it may save democracy in the United States if it finally motivates “liberals” to slam and eliminate – or at least cut back – early voting. There is a sense that the people who voted prior to the election in Montana made the difference in electing the candidate in Montana who body-slammed a reporter. As a result, enough people in America may finally be motivated to eliminate or cut back early voting, even if...
  • Trump Declared May 1 “Loyalty Day,” But You Shouldn’t Freak Out About It

    Trump Declared May 1 “Loyalty Day,” But You Shouldn’t Freak Out About It By Morgan Brinlee 19 hours ago President Donald Trump asked Americans to reaffirm their allegiance to the United States' founding principals in a proclamation that caused a number of people on social media to flip out. In his proclamation, Trump called on Americans to "observe this day with appropriate ceremonies," including reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked government officials to display the American flag on all government buildings and grounds. But while Trump's request may sound a bit Orwellian, the truth is there's no reason to...
  • REPORT: Democrat Darling in Georgia House Special Election Runs Company That Funds Human Smuggling

    Democrat Congressional Candidate and Georgia darling, Jon Ossoff paid human smugglers operating across Europe approximately $2,000. Everyday we learn more and more about this young Democrat who was foisted onto Georgians by outside money. We also just reported that Ossoff didn’t vote in the 2012 election. He claims he couldn’t vote because he was abroad. Yeah ok, makes sense! Someone who was involved in human smuggling shouldn’t be able to run for office, but since he’s a Democrat, this will probably get swept under the rug.

    Terrorists inside America plotting attacks 'each and every single day'! Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike "each and every single day." The FBI has "open terrorist investigations in all 50 states," according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 "ISIS-linked plots to attack our country" since 2013, a number that...

    LONDON, England, April 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A UK judge has ruled it is in a child's best interest to “die with dignity” rather than to allow his parents to seek additional medical treatment. Connie Yates and Chris Gard want to take eight-month-old son Charlie to the United States for treatment of a rare disease. A GoFundMe account has given them enough money to do so. But Charlie needs to remain on life support to make the trip and Justice Francis determined it is in the "best interests of the child" to withdraw his feeding tube and breathing machine. Charlie...
  • Where Will You Go When North Korean Agents Release Biological Weapons In Major U.S. Cities?

    Most Americans have no idea that biological weapons could potentially bring our nation to a complete and utter standstill within a matter of days. In recent articles I have been trying to get people to understand why it would be so exceedingly dangerous for the United States to attack North Korea. If the North Koreans used weapons of mass destruction, we could easily be facing a situation in which millions of North Korean and Japanese citizens end up dead. But since it would happen on the other side of the planet, such a scenario doesn’t seem to emotionally move a...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) today released April’s Terror Threat Snapshot, a monthly assessment of the Committee’s continuing effort to highlight the growing threat America, the West, and the world face from ISIS and other Islamist terrorists. Chairman Michael McCaul: “One year after the heinous attack in Brussels, ISIS continues to leverage the power of lone-wolfs targeting the West—most recently at the heart of the British government. We must remain clear-eyed about the threats we face. Islamist terror has been franchised to followers not only in strongholds like Iraq and Syria, but in all...

    House report tracks 204 homegrown jihadist cases in America since 9/11. The threat of homegrown Islamist extremism in the United States is on the rise, according to a new House Homeland Security Committee report. Nearly 20 percent of the 204 homegrown jihadist incidents in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks have occurred over the past year, the committee found in its monthly Terror Threat Snapshot, citing data from the Majority Staff of the Homeland Security Committee. Two Americans with suspected ties to the Islamic State were indicted last month on terrorism charges. Texas resident Said Azzam...

  • Why the Purchase of Alaska Was Far From “Folly”

    Though mocked by some at the time, the March 30, 1867, purchase of Alaska from Russia for just $7.2 million is now regarded as a masterful deal, thanks to its architect, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward. The treaty enlarged the United States by 586,000 square miles, an area more than twice the size of Texas, all for the bargain price of around two cents an acre. Yet because some politicians and journalists considered Alaska a barren wasteland— and inherently opposed anything supported by President Andrew Johnson—it became popularly known as “Seward’s Folly” ....

    The stars of American baseball have finally earned their World Baseball Classic stripes. The United States got a brilliant pitching performance from starter and WBC 2017 MVP Marcus Stroman and enough offense from its All-Star-packed lineup of Major League luminaries to beat Puerto Rico, 8-0, in the championship game of the 2017 Classic on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. After three World Baseball Classics dating back to the inaugural tournament in 2006 in which Team USA never made it past the semifinals, the Americans won their first title in decisive style in front of a raucous, bipartisan crowd of 51,565...

    Throughout their first three World Baseball Classics, the United States' burly batting order had some of the most prodigious sluggers in the Major Leagues, but that never got the Americans to the tournament's final game. So naturally that changed in a dramatic 2-1 semifinal victory over two-time Classic winner Japan on a wet, chilly Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, courtesy of a regular old ground ball. With the score tied at 1 in the top of the eighth, Adam Jones' fielder's-choice RBI grounder was bobbled by Japan third baseman Nobuhiro Matsuda long enough to allow Brandon Crawford to score from...

According to Fox News, Kid Rock released a statement coinciding with the introduction of the grills, saying, “I’m not gonna lie. It is more expensive to make things in America. But it’s important to me. I love America, and I want to do all I can to create manufacturing jobs at home.”

    Mariners left-hander Drew Smyly started the United States' 4-2 victory against Venezuela on Wednesday night, and he was dominant. The 27-year-old struck out eight and walked none in 4 2/3 innings in the Pool F opener of the World Baseball Classic. The last six outs Smyly recorded were strikeouts before he gave way to Rangers closer Sam Dyson. Smyly's final pitch, a fastball to strike out Carlos Gonzalez, was clocked at 94.4 mph. Smyly had never thrown a pitch that exceeded 93.96 mph (on April 24, 2015) in the Statcast™ era. Smyly gave up one run, but it was unearned....

    Throw out all the tiebreaker scenarios. Team USA is moving on. The Americans' mission was clear after the Dominican Republic outlasted Colombia, 9-3, in extra innings: Win and get in to Round 2 of the World Baseball Classic. A focused Team USA squad did just that by defeating Team Canada, 8-0, on Sunday at Marlins Park in Miami to punch its ticket to the second round in San Diego. The victory left the Americans with a 2-1 record in Pool C, good enough to claim a Pool F matchup against the Pool D runner-up Wednesday at 9 pm. ET (6...

    The Dominican Republic got one step closer to punching its ticket to the second round of the World Baseball Classic on Saturday, besting the United States in a clash of two Pool C titans. With back-to-back home runs from Nelson Cruz and Starling Marte in the eighth inning, the Dominican Republic stormed back from a five-run deficit and improved to 2-0 in the tournament with a 7-5 win in Miami. The game was played before a raucous, sold-out crowd of 37,446, establishing a new record for Marlins Park. The ballpark's previous high was 37,116 on Opening Day in 2014. The...
