  • Putin taunts the West by taking a flight in Russia’s Tu-160M strategic nuclear bomber as Kremlin threatens nuclear war

    Vladimir Putin taunted the West by taking a joyride in a modernised supersonic Tu-160M strategic nuclear bomber today - as the Kremlin threatened nuclear war. The despot's stunt - which lasted around 40 minutes - appeared to be intended to enhance his macho ratings as he stands for re-election next month -snip- Putin was seen taking off in Kazan a day after he visited a factory in the city where the Tupolev bombers are manufactured.

    There’s little debate that modern-day American universities, public education, mainstream media, Hollywood, and political advocacy groups are dominated by leftists. This is no accident, but part of a deliberate strategy to pave the way for communist revolution developed more than eight decades ago by an Italian political theorist named Antonio Gramsci. Described as one of the world’s most important and influential Marxist theorists since Marx himself, if you are not familiar with Gramsci, you should be. Gramsci wrote in the 1930s of a “war of position” for socialists and communists to subvert Western culture from the inside. facebook sharing button...
  • New York to hand out $10,000 cards to illegals, no I.D. required, what could go wrong?

    You can almost hear the fraudsters plotting to steal cards with this bad idea. For a mayor who claims that the migrant influx is going bankrupt his city, he sure has a funny way of responding to it. According to Nicole Gelinas at the New York Post: Earlier this month, The Post broke the story that Mayor Eric Adams is giving out pre-paid cash cards to migrants. Unusually for the mayor, Adams didn’t publicize this story himself, and his administration for nearly a month has failed to correct several public misperceptions about it. One misperception is that the program allows...

    The quickest way to defang any totalitarian regime is to paint it with the emasculating brush of contemptuous ridicule. Every once in a while, Big Government globalists inadvertently tell the truth. It’s usually not because they’re dumb, but because they’re so entombed inside their own dystopian cocoons that they forget how crazy they might sound to reasonable, well adjusted people. The World Economic Forum is filled with giddy zealots who have no idea how insane their plans for global domination sound to the wider population because the WEF’s psychopathic members are universally eager to depopulate the planet; cage the survivors;...

    I believe progressives and radical Democrats are a peculiar lot and a mixture of many personality types simultaneously. They are aggressive, mean-spirited, have little regard for ethical restraint, are didactic, insecure, yet, comfortable in their cocoon of always being right, if they say it, it becomes so. I believe they awake each morning disgruntled that the world is imperfect and only they have the answer how to change it into a better one. They profess to mean well and to have their fellow "man" always in mind. Take President Johnson who had the "chutzpah" to believe he could end poverty....

    New York is Migrant Central — the No. 1 destination in the country for illegal border crossers — and it’s no accident. New York’s Democratic politicians benefit from the deluge. The more migrants come here, the more congressional seats and clout in the electoral college New York is able to maintain. Elon Musk spelled it out on X on Feb. 3: “Most people in America don’t know that the census is based on a simple headcount of people (including illegals) not just citizens. This shifts political power and money to states and Congressional districts with the highest number of illegals.”...

    Proverbs 17:9 (King James Version) He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends. Every member of the Democrat Party who is not outraged by the level of corruption the judges are going to stop President Trump from running is just as guilty as he is. For someone to agree with convict someone of a fake crime like they do in the Soviet Union you have to have a hatred which goes to your very bone marrow. The same people who are outraged by the killing of the Russian Presidential candidate are cheering...

    Trump-supporting truck drivers are reportedly boycotting New York City after a Manhattan judge ordered former President Donald Trump to pay $355 million because of his business practices. Friday’s decision follows a New York jury’s decision last month to award left-wing writer E. Jean Carroll $83.3 million in damages in her defamation suit against Trump. The two decisions have outraged conservatives, including many truckers. Chicago Ray, a trucker with over 244,000 followers on X, said on Friday that he was hearing that truckers were planning to boycott deliveries to the Big Apple starting on Monday. “I don’t know how far across...

    Josef Stalin set the example for the world as the most ruthless practitioner of the art of using a thoroughly corrupt and subservient “justice system” to eliminate all political opposition. Many, many others have since followed Stalin’s lead. Current notable examples include the recent murder of Alexei Navalny in prison in Russia; Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who fled that country in late 2023 after his arrest was threatened by the Maduro regime; and Pakistan’s former Prime Minister and current opposition leader Imran Khan, convicted in January 2024 of “disclosing a state secret” and sentenced to 10 years in jail....

    Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh says the PA is still seeking unity with Hamas terror group and may hold talks with the group in Moscow on February 26. “Russia has invited all Palestinian factions who will be meeting on the 26 of this month in Moscow. We will see if Hamas is ready to come to the ground with us,” he says at the Munich Security Conference. “We are ready to engage. If Hamas is not then that’s a different story. We need Palestinian unity,” he says. He adds that Hamas needs to meet certain prerequisites. Asked about making...

    For too long, serious churches have ceded ground to the left on cultural issues that the left integrated into politics, and they’re running out of time to act. I was fortunate enough to see an early screening of a brand-new film based on Eric Metaxas’ best-selling book, Letter to the American Church. The hour-long film, which shares the book’s name, vividly lays out the case that it is high time Christians in this country got seriously involved in the cultural and political arena. The author’s narration is accompanied by rapid-fire images that help convey the urgency of the days in...

    There have been murmurs for at least the last ten years about the potential for civil war in the United States. Polls have shown that roughly half the country believes that future conflict is likely. The intrusion of unchecked government power into every crevice of our private lives has transformed politics into a high-stakes cage match in which furious citizens fight to survive. Because government exerts so much control over citizens, winning control of government has become an existential imperative. Such zero-sum thinking has fractured society and pitted Americans against one another. However, something fundamental has been shifting beneath our...

    On the one hand, Donald Trump, the former and perhaps future president of the United States, seems uniquely hapless. He lost an election unlike any other before—one in which insecure mail-in balloting proliferated, many states made constitutionally dubious changes to their voting procedures, and Big Tech put a decisive and perhaps outcome-altering thumb on the scale. Even worse, Trump last year became the first former president to be criminally indicted—four separate times. Tough luck, for sure. But on the other hand, there is one thing that should provide no small amount of solace to Trump and his many supporters. As...

    I actually agree with the media and other Democrats on something: let’s give credit where credit is due. We keep hearing from the media, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and other Democrats that the only reason Biden has poor ratings is because the public just doesn’t understand how great his policies really are. They think he and Harris deserve more credit, and tout what they call, “achievements.” That way, we the little people might be able to grasp how competent the administration is. I know that the media, Biden, and other Democrats want to be completely transparent with things Biden has...

    Woke farming? The ESG and DEI diseases are now afflicting agriculture. Having spent the first two of my eight decades on our family’s small dairy farm in Wisconsin, it was ingrained early and often that hard work and common sense were keys to survival in the agriculture realm. My follow-on decades were all embedded in higher education -- student first, then faculty and administrator -- and, there, hard work is significantly less tangible and common sense is non-existent. Nonetheless, I remained confident that American agriculture had stayed true to its roots -- hard work and common sense. Can you imagine...

In Brazil, the people swarmed into government buildings after a fraudulent election. In America, the people swarmed into Congress after a fraudulent election. In Sri Lanka, the people swarmed into Temple Trees—the Prime Minister’s residence—over a mismanaged economy. In Holland, farmers revolted over the government’s plan to destroy agriculture. In Germany, the farmers revolted when the government targeted them. In France, farmers sprayed manure onto government buildings. In France, the offices of Blackrock were breached and trashed.

    World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recently complained about the citizens who are skeptical to cede national sovereignties and individual rights to his global agency, under the pending expansion of WHO powers through a revised Pandemic Treaty, and accused them of spreading disinformation. This rings hollow because such valid legal concern should be a top concern for all of humanity following the botched WHO response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet an even greater hollowness echoes behind such claims—the shocking sexual predation of vulnerable women under Mr. Ghebreyesus’s authority in Congo during the Ebola crisis, for which there has been...

    I first reported in April 2023 about a new California state law that would require utility companies to come up with a fixed-rate plan as a way to help stabilize rates and make billing more "equitable." Hence, the state’s soon-to-be-implemented "equitable" policy will base residential electricity bills on income rather than usage, even as public and political opposition to the idea builds in the Democratic coalition.I titled my 2023 article "Marxism, California Style? New State Law Will Lead Energy Companies to Bill Customers Based on Income" because of a phrase popularized by Karl Marx as part of a larger communist...

    Remembering Fidel Castro as a social justice warrior or human rights advocate might be an easy way to get a black eye in Miami. Nevertheless, the fools are out there. This is what we are talking about: The students were told that Castro was “a figure whose impact on Cuba and the world is undeniable.” While that’s true, it’s not for positive contributions. The script conveniently omits that Castro’s reign was marked by human rights abuses, mass murders, and political suppression. Instead, he was applauded because he “challenged imperialistic influences.” “As the leader of the Cuban Revolution in 1959, Castro...

    Because leftists cannot win in the war of ideas, they will inevitably choose violence over reasoned debate. In 2004, when I got curious about what blogs were, I started investigating blogs on both the left and the right. I quickly realized that leftists dealt with obscenity, invective, and America hatred, and that I preferred the polite, reasoned debate on the right. One of my favorite sites was Power Line, started by a cadre of four Minneapolis-based attorneys. I still check in with Power Line on a regular basis, which is how I learned that leftists firebombed the offices of the...
