  • Ilhan Omar: Progressives Ready to Fill Biden’s Cabinet, Force Him to “Act Accordingly”

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, in an interview with Axios, said that progressives are waiting to fill Joe Biden’s cabinet and will push him to “act accordingly” on several policies including banning fracking. Omar’s comments are another in a long string from members of the ‘Squad’ – a more radical faction in the Democrat party – that they intend to push Biden to do their bidding should he win the election. The Minnesota Democrat believes “all of the cabinet positions should be filled by progressive Democrats.” She then ticked off a litany of policies that other Democrat presidential candidates supported but were...

    If the 2020 presidential election proves to be close, the radical Left has whipped themselves into a frenzy believing that President Trump will engineer a coup – an illegal seizure of power to contort our Democratic and election processes. Hmmm. Aren’t they the ones who’ve been attempting this for the last four years? Just recently, the Left published a 38-page guidebook, Stopping the Coup: The 2020 Guide. The guidebook states that, “If the Right is prepared to steal the election, then we must be prepared to disrupt the status quo and resist. As they have already amply proclaimed and exhibited,...

    Every good thing comes to an end. Since our founding -- based on ideas and principles rather than race or nationality -- America grew to become the world's most dominant power by the end of World War II. By the 1990s, once we won the Cold War, there was nobody else even close. Now we are completely falling apart. Our situation is so bad that it could be time to start debating whether we have, in fact, peaked as a country and as a world power. I sure hope not. Some aspects of our decline can be measured in numbers....

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:Section 1.  Purpose.  The first duty of government is to ensure domestic tranquility and defend the life, property, and rights of its citizens.  Over the last 5 weeks, there has been a sustained assault on the life and property of civilians, law enforcement officers, government property, and revered American monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial.  Many of the rioters, arsonists, and left-wing extremists who have carried out and supported these acts have explicitly identified themselves...

    British police say it was an “error of judgment” to include environmental protest group Extinction Rebellion in an official document that listed extremist organizations. The counterterrorism police unit for southeast England included the climate change protesters alongside Islamic extremists and banned neo-Nazi group National Action in a guide to “safeguarding young people and adults from ideological extremism,” The Guardian newspaper reported. The guide said that “while concern about climate change is not in itself extreme, activists may encourage vulnerable people to perform acts of violence.” …

    Several weeks ago, progressive writer John Pavlovitz wrote an article objecting to the idea that he is part of the “radical left.” He doesn’t think he’s radical at all. In fact, he prefers to see himself as part of what he calls the “human middle.” He writes, “I’m pretty sure that most people reside here in this place alongside me: the desire for compassion and diversity and equality and justice; that these things aren’t fringe ideologies or extremist positions — but simply the best way to be human."

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently announced that the social media platform will no longer run political advertisements of any kind. Twitter is a private company and is free to adopt whatever policies it wants, but this decision is not the win for civil discourse and our “democratic infrastructure” that Dorsey claims it is. Defending his decision, Dorsey drew a Manichean dichotomy between meritoriously “earned” media and misleading paid content. That dichotomy is shallow and misleading. While he is right that, absent paid political advertising, “a political message earns reach when people decide to follow an account or retweet,” Dorsey does...

    FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday said that violent, racially-motivated extremists in the U.S. are connecting with foreign extremists, with some traveling abroad to train. Appearing before the House Homeland Security Committee, Wray was pressed to discuss how the FBI handles domestic terrorism suspects and how it is different than foreign terrorism suspects. "We are starting to see racially-motivated violent extremists connecting with likeminded individuals overseas online, certainly, and in some instances we have seen some folks travel overseas to train," Wray said after Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) expressed concern about domestic terrorists traveling to Ukraine for training. A U.S....

    In case you missed it this week, 20 Democrats hopeful to take back the White House in 2020 participated in their first election debates. Candidates were split on two stages between two nights, with each hour proving Democrats have officially abandoned any moderate position with a full embrace of the most radical leftist positions. Whether it's destroying the private health insurance system, raising taxes on the middle class, providing "free" healthcare to illegal aliens or supporting abortion up until nine months, candidates made their positions clear. But according to a new Rasmussen poll, the majority of voters believe the...

    Can former Vice President Joe Biden thrive in a Democratic Party that treats predictions of climate change catastrophe as religious doctrine? Not if Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have it their way. Reuters reported Friday that Biden – currently the early front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in terms of voter support and fundraising – is crafting a “middle ground” climate change policy that his team believes will appeal to enough voters to put him in the White House. **SNIP** Biden’s “middle ground” policy comes just as Ocasio-Cortez – with help from Hollywood, the left-wing...

    The number of murders by extremist individuals has dropped significantly under POTUS Donald Trump compared to the final two years Barack Obama was president, according to a new study by the Anti-Defamation League. “In 2018, domestic extremists killed at least 50 people in the U.S., a sharp increase from the 37 extremist-related murders documented in 2017, though still lower than the totals for 2015 (70) and 2016 (72),” the ADL’s Center on Extremism reported. That said, the 50 deaths recorded last year did mark the fourth-deadliest on record for acts of domestic extremism, the center noted. Two major incidents in...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...

    Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will travel to Kansas together next week to campaign for a pair of candidates in the state, according to The Washington Post. The pair will start off in Wichita, Kansas on July 20 to campaign for James Thompson in the state’s 4th district. From there they’ll head to outside Kansas City to support former Sanders delegate Brent Welder, who is running for the Democratic nomination in the 3rd congressional district. Sanders told The Post that he and Ocasio-Cortez, a self-identified democratic socialist, organized the trip after realizing they both wanted...

    EPA administrator Scott Pruitt has faced an "unprecedented" number of death threats, according to an agency spokesman. His statement follows reports Pruitt has spent millions on security despite no proof his life was in danger. “According to EPA’s Assistant Inspector General, Scott Pruitt has faced an unprecedented amount of death threats against him and his family,” agency spokesman Jahan Wilcox said late Friday. “Americans should all agree that members of the president’s Cabinet should be kept safe from these violent threats.” The statement was obtained Saturday by Fox News and included a list of several published reports about such incidents....

    OHANNESBURG — The U.S. military’s Africa command says its forces conducted an airstrike against Islamic extremists in Somalia last week, approximately 30 miles northwest of Kismayo, killing eight militants and destroying one vehicle. In its statement released Monday, the U.S. Africa Command said that it assess no civilians were killed in the strike. The statement said U.S. forces will continue to use “all authorized and appropriate measures” to protect U.S. citizens and to disable extremist threats. This includes partnering with the multinational African force in Somalia and the Somali National Security Forces to attack the extremist rebels of al-Shabab, their...

    Google has insisted that its robots are now superior to humans at identifying and blocking extremist videos, saying that they flag three in four offensive videos from YouTube before they are reported by users. [Google] more than doubled the number of illegal videos deleted from its platform last month after it adopted artificial intelligence moderators to help police content. "With over 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube every minute, finding and taking action on violent extremist content poses a significant challenge. But over the past month, our initial use of machine learning has more than doubled both the number...

    If it seems like people’s politics are diametrically opposed based on where they fall on the spectrum, it is because of messaging, not because of aims or beliefs. Should we just consider the rank and file voters (not the agenda driven extremists who all too often seem to end up in positions of power and influence), it is possible to see that our desired results are actually very similar; it is our methods of achievement that create division. Looking in-depth at results as opposed to ideologies often shows that a common ground exists (imperfect but similar), but that it is...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, like Snopes, is one of those ridiculously sloppy institutions, that makes claims without bothering to prove them, while skating by on name recognition The Middlebury College attackers who shut down Charles Murray’s talk and assaulted a professor accompanying him drew their argument in part from a familiar source. They cited the Southern Poverty Law Center’s labeling of Murray as a racist. This isn’t the first time that the SPLC’s efforts of supposedly labeling “extremists” has led to violence against its targets. The worst such incident remains the attack on the Family Research Council headquarters by...
