  • Trump’s Independence Day Speech Was Not ‘Dark’ Or ‘Divisive,’ It Was American

    This cacophony comes from a sliver of society, with their voices amplified by a media selling an election year controversy to cripple President Trump. Donald Trump did not launch the latest culture war: The left-leaning press, political foes, Marxist-believing activists, and corporate and educational institutions did. When President Trump stood before a patriotic crowd on Friday night, under the watchful eyes of our country’s greatest presidents, his pronouncement that the silent majority will not retreat or surrender our founding principles was not divisive. It was American. On the eve of Independence Day, our 45th president proclaimed the truths on which...

    “Trust in Trump’s America is gone.” The coronavirus crisis has caused a dramatic deterioration in the European public perception of the US and left many believing the EU had become “irrelevant”, new polling finds. The new survey by the European Council for Foreign Relations (ECFR) says the pandemic has traumatized Europeans and left them “feeling alone and vulnerable”. The survey studied the views of Europeans towards the EU and notably its response to the coronavirus crisis and the results did not make for positive reading. “There is a powerful sense among citizens of almost all surveyed member states that their...
  • Trump tries to drag America backward on a very different July 4th

    On a very different Fourth of July, when many Americans are wrestling with the racist misdeeds of the country's heroes and confronting an unrelenting pandemic with surging cases, their commander-in-chief is attempting to drag America backward -- stirring fear of cultural change while flouting the most basic scientific evidence about disease transmission. In a jaw-dropping speech that amounted to a culture war bonfire, President Trump used the backdrop of Mount Rushmore to frame protesters as a nefarious left-wing mob that intends to "end America." Those opponents, he argued, are engaged in a "merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame...

    Opinion| The Secretary General of The United Nations, Antonio Guterres, finally said what we all knew what he was going to say and called for the implementation a single one world government.I would sure bet that Guterres is going to suggest that the United Nations, which he is the head of, would be that singular authority with virtually unlimited and unchecked power.  Imagine my shock that a global bureaucrat would be looking to put the entire world under his thumb.“We need a networked multilateralism, bringing together the U.N. system, regional organizations, international financial institutions and others. And we need an...
  • Make No Mistake, 'Black Lives Matter' Wants To ‘Burn Down’ Western Civilization And Replace It With A Communist/Socialist Hellscape

    Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of Western civilization? Based on recent events, it would be hard to argue otherwise. As the mindless mob tears its way through what remains of a once-great culture, the twisted ideology it is imposing along the way - the belief (or at least pretend belief) of which is mandatory on pain of one’s livelihood and societal good-standing - is one that is the polar opposite of observable reality. Racist police officers running rampant, just looking for black men to murder; a racist country full of racists looking to hate and keep people...

    How long can this nation survive when its main cultural and educational institutions preach a relentless, unchallenged stream of anti-Americanism to young people (and others) who lack the background to resist this toxicity? Along with others, I have long argued that the American left has a major problem with America as founded. Yet Democrats are outraged by the suggestion, and too many Republicans seem insufficiently concerned about it. They better wake up. If current events aren't enough to turn your head, please consider the following data presented by Eric Kaufmann, professor of politics at the University of London Birkbeck College....

    America was founded upon genocide, slavery, and theft, said Hollywood director and actor Spike Lee in a recent interview with Joe Madison on his radio show. “The foundation of the United States of America is immoral, from the get-go. The foundation has been shaky from day one. This country was based upon the stealing of the land from native people and genocide against native people, coupled with slavery.” Spike Lee said. “Whenever this day comes, when we go back to supposed normalcy. What they called normal was abnormal.” We’ve been patriotic for this country from day one,” said Lee of...

    The bronze statue of Theodore Roosevelt, on horseback and flanked by a Native American man and an African man, which has presided over the entrance to the American Museum of Natural History in New York since 1940, is coming down. The decision, proposed by the museum and agreed to by New York City, which owns the building and property, came after years of objections from activists and at a time when the killing of George Floyd has initiated an urgent nationwide conversation about racism. For many, the “Equestrian” statue at the museum’s Central Park West entrance had come to symbolize...

    The European Parliament voted Friday to declare that "Black Lives Matter" and to denounce racism and white supremacism in all its forms. The resolution has no legal consequences but sends a signal of support to anti-racism protesters, and it follows a UN call for a probe into police brutality and "systemic racism." And, one day before President Donald Trump is to hold a rally in Tulsa, a city that saw one of the worst racist massacres in US history, the lawmakers condemned American police brutality. Point number one of the text of the resolution takes up the slogan US campaigners...

    Howard Zinn’s radical revisionist ‘history’ book, 'A People’s History' of The United States, is the new normal in the American education system. A young high school history teacher, named Annie, posted a TikTok video raving about Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States,” which she explains will be her new classroom textbook. @historyrulezIf you want to better ‘understand our country, it’s true history, and it’s hope for the future’ read this book!!♬ original sound – historyrulez Howard Zinn’s 1980 left-wing revisionist history book, “A People’s History of the United States,” is a Marxist’s take on American history.

    The imagery couldn’t be more direct. Across the nation, rioting and unrest that has killed black Americans and destroyed black neighborhoods has included the defacement of historic monuments, including those to abolitionists.The last wave of monument destruction, in 2017, largely focused on Confederates and slave holders, erasing all the accomplishments of figures such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson with a scarlet S, for slave-holder. This time, the ignorance has descended even further.The rioters are now tearing down and defacing memorials wantonly, apparently assuming that if someone is being celebrated that person is “probably a racist,” as the image...

    Brooke Williams, the niece of George Floyd, asked “when has America ever been great?” as she paid tribute to her uncle at his funeral in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday afternoon. “As long as I’m breathing, justice will be served for Perry,” Williams pledged. “That officer showed no remorse while watching my uncle’s soul leave his body. He begged and pleaded many times just for you to get up, but you just pushed harder. Why must the system be corrupt and broken?” “Someone said, ‘Make America Great Again,’ but when has America ever been great?” she then asked, alluding to President...

    Rep. Pelosi and Sen. Schumer lead Democrats in 8 minutes, 46 seconds of silence. Showing their solidarity with Americans protesting the police killing of George Floyd and other black men, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and many of their fellow Democrats knelt in silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds at the U.S. Capitol on Monday. That's how long a Minneapolis policeman kept his knee on George Floyd's neck, until he lost consciousness and died. The horrifying moments, as Floyd lay handcuffed on the ground, happened as three other officers stood by and did...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – In a letter to congressional colleagues, Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash (MI-3) said he'll be introducing a bill to do away with the law that protects police officers from being sued while doing their jobs. Sparked by the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer, Amash said it was time for congress to open-up individual officers to legal punishments who use brutal tactics on suspects. “This pattern continues because police are legally, politically, and culturally insulated from consequences -- that must change so that these incidents of brutality stop happening" the Congressman wrote. “He's going...

    Behind the anti-American hate seen in the current rioting, arson, and looting is the long term undermining of America carried out systematically in our universities. Various social movements—the counter-culture movement of the 1960s, the feminist movement from the 1960s, the revival of Marxism in the 1970s, the race activists from the Black Panthers to Black Lives Matter, the gay liberation movement, the Palestinian anti-Israel movement—have been adopted and absorbed in universities in their most extreme and maximalist forms. Professors have ceased to see themselves as scholars striving for impartial and objective knowledge, choosing instead to be advocates of preferred groups...
