    Democrat Rep. Debra Haaland (NM) proclaimed on Sunday that far-left extremist group Antifa consists of "peaceful protesters" who are just trying to protect Portland from "domestic terrorism." ... "It's not surprising that Trump would side away from the folks who are the peaceful protesters working to safeguard their city from domestic terrorism," Haaland continued. "Just not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists. That's been his mode of operation since before he was elected president." Haaland seemed unaware of the fact that a self-described member of Antifa carried out a domestic terror attack against an ICE...

    “Donald Trump is a racist, white supremacist, white nationalist. So are his supporters.” Some version of that refrain is heard almost hourly somewhere in mainstream media. Democratic politicians seem to proclaim it more often than that. Listening only to the Left, you’d conclude that more than half a century after passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and more than a decade after the election of the first black president, the number of racists and white supremacists in America seems to be reaching levels not seen in a hundred years. (In reality, in 1930, when the nation’s population was approximately...

    Sen. Cory Booker wants Democrats to go bolder on guns — and says they’re playing into the hands of the National Rifle Association and the corporate gun lobby by rejecting bolder ideas. “For Democrats to play into the hands of the corporate gun lobby, and just letting them define what the realm of possible is, it’s so defeatist to me,” the New Jersey senator told me during an interview this week. “At a time with the levels of carnage in our country, we don’t need people who are defeatist in their thinking about what’s possible.” Booker, who is running for...

    You’ve got to admire Israel. When people who want to destroy their country try to enter their borders, they turn them back. Rather than do the same, the political left in this country celebrate those people. No matter where they are in the world, progressives have one objective: destroy. People don’t volunteer to have something they love to be “fundamentally transformed,” and fundamental transformation of the country and the world is exactly what progressives ultimately want. And they’re willing to do anything to get there. When it was announced that Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were going to travel to...

    Because the race-baiting sycophants in the Left-wing “mainstream” media don’t believe they have divided America enough, the ‘woke’ editorial staff at The New York Times is embarking on a project to push our country closer to the abyss. Under the auspices of something called “The 1619 Project,” the Times seeks to rebrand history and make the issue of slavery central to America’s founding. The title of the initiative makes reference to the 400th anniversary of the arrival of black slaves to lands later to be collectively known as the United States. And the Times is clear about its objective: “It...

    Listen up, Trumpophobes. It’s not so hard to understand the president’s appeal. Try going to one of his rallies and, instead of turning up your nose at the Walmart people, listen and learn. The abuse of President Trump and his supporters that passes for analysis from his opponents is a strategic error. The more abuse, the more Trump’s base is energized to turn out on Election Day. At his Thursday-night rally to launch his 2020 New Hampshire campaign, he broke Elton John’s all-time attendance record with a crowd of 11,500 inside the Southern New Hampshire University Arena. It wasn’t just...
  • Sanders' Criminal Justice Plan Aims To Cut Prison Population

    Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is proposing a criminal justice overhaul that aims to cut the nation's prison population in half, end mandatory minimum sentencing, ban private prisons and legalize marijuana. He says the current system does not fairly treat people of color, addicts or the mentally ill. "We have a system that imprisons and destroys the lives of millions of people," Sanders told The Associated Press before the planned released of his proposal Sunday. "It's racist in disproportionately affecting the African American and Latino communities, and it's a system that needs fundamental change." Sanders was promoting the plan during...

    So, here’s a question for Democrats: Is this really your ideological image of the current President of the United States of America? Variously described as the primary fabricator and disseminator of Nazi ideology, the party’s chief racial theorist, and author of the seminal work of party ideology, The Myth of the Twentieth Century (1930), in 1934 Alfred Ernst Rosenberg was appointed cultural and educational leader of the Third Reich by the German Chancellor who called Rosenberg “the church father of national socialism.” Condemned to death at the Nuremberg trials, he was hanged on 16 October 1946. Today’s Democrat Presidential candidates...

    According to social media rules, the first person in an argument to bring up Hitler or Nazis loses. Well, here goes. Hitler may be overused as shorthand for evil, and name-calling is stupid, but this unbending rule would mean we can never impart lessons learned from the rise of Nazi Germany. That would be a terrible mistake, and it’s how the left would like it. They want us to forget what National Socialism, Fascism and Communism — not to mention Antifa — have in common. They all spring from the poisoned root of Marxism. Today, we ignore extreme rhetoric and...

    Two more conservative commentators at CNN appear to have joined the growing club of suppressed conservative pundits, according to a report in Friday's Hollywood Reporter.  The ones who were muzzled, this time by sidelining, are Steve Cortes and Ben Ferguson. And the reason for the sidelining appears to have been due to pressure from the left. Liberals can't stand a serious opposing view. They can only stomach never-Trump Republicans that sound like Democrats, like Max Boot. See Stephen Colbert complaining to Anderson Cooper about Ken Cuccinelli's spots on CNN. "There are a few panelists that I've got to skip over," he...

    During Saturday morning's "State of the Union" on CNN, host Jake Tapper asked 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg about President Donald Trump's so-called "racism.""Do you think it's a racist act to cast a vote for President Trump in 2020?" Tapper asked."At best it means looking the other way on racism," Buttigieg replied. "You look at what he said in that rally. You got no choice but to vote for him. And if you look at the numbers, basically what he's saying is, 'Alright. I want you to look the other way on the race issue, tolerate the negativity, accept the...

    An MSNBC guest questioned the intelligence of Trump voters on Friday, asking if anyone who attended President Trump's rally in Manchester, N.H., can "point out Greenland on a map?" On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump has asked his advisers whether the U.S. can acquire Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, during "meetings, dinners, and passing conversations" because of Greenland's "abundant resources and geopolitical importance." However, "The Beat" managing editor Tiffany Cross expressed concern when she heard that "the descendants of colonizers" are flimsily considering "taking land from indigenous people." "This is something, you know his supporters are like...

    When former Coast Guardsman Amanda Wolfe went to the emergency room because her appendix was about to burst in September 2016, she figured her insurance would cover the cost. She had two kinds of insurance — a private plan she paid for and her Veterans Affairs benefits. The emergency appendectomy went well and Wolfe made a speedy recovery. Her private insurance covered most of the more than $20,000 bill for her hospital stay. But six months later, the VA denied her claim for the roughly $2,500 that remained, putting her in an unexpected financial bind. She has been appealing ever...

    "Because my party's been so allergic to religious language, we've forgotten that people need to be made aware of their choice," Buttigieg told CNN. "I've got to speak up, if only to point out the hypocrisies of those now in power," he added. "Time will tell whether that's smart politically or not." Thus far, it seems to be working. Progressives, particularly LGBT Christians, have cheerfully circulated his critiques of the religious right and lauded the gay Christian's candidacy as a watershed moment for a community long shunted to the margins of church life. *** The son of a former Jesuit,...

    The Democratic presidential candidates on stage Tuesday and Wednesday night are trying hard to woo primary voters so that, if they prevail, they can then make their case to the general population as the party’s nominee. But the ultimate deciders come 2020 might not be the ones who cast ballots in neighborhood polling stations. There is a very good chance that the Electoral College will split evenly on Election Day, throwing the race into the House of Representatives. And just as with the popular vote, the majority does not choose the winner. Though Democrats control the House and are likely...
