    In a striking indication of the American right’s increasingly skeptical view of costly foreign interventionism, the Heritage Foundation took an aggressive stance against the $40 billion aid package approved by Congress earlier this month. In a May 10 statement ahead of the House vote, Heritage executive director Jessica Anderson said, “This proposed Ukraine aid package takes money away from the priorities of the American people and recklessly sends our taxpayer dollars to a foreign nation without any accountability. America is struggling with record-setting inflation, debt, a porous border, crime and energy depletion yet progressives in Washington are prioritizing a $40...

    Monuments to Christopher Columbus are regularly vandalized throughout the Americas, but Spain remains faithful to his memory. Last week, I visited Seville Cathedral, where his supposed remains are carried shoulder-high by massive statues representing the kings of Castille, Leon, Navarre, and Aragon.... ...The anniversary of his reaching the New World, Oct. 12, is Spain’s national day. The only concession to modern sensibilities is that it is now known as the Día de la Hispanidad rather than the Día de la Raza. Seville’s Plaza de España is connected to the Plaza de America by streets named after Hernan Cortes and Francisco...

    In Australia's socialist left governed police state of Victoria, a man can be arrested for lobbying a female politician for World War Two memorial tree plantings. A man can be hauled before a family violence court if a woman does not like the way he looks at her. The police can throw a religious man in jail for conducting a mass. (Cardinal George Pell) The price of liberty IS eternal vigilance against the dangers of leftist crap. Remembering and honoring the heroes of WW2 is one way to oppose modern PC political stupidity.

  • England Rugby Team Drops ‘Saxons’ Nickname to Reflect ‘Diversity in Society’

    The Rugby Football Union (RFU) has dropped the nickname “Saxons” for one of the top England teams following a Black Lives Matter-inspired diversity review into the sport. England’s second team, which has been referred to as the “Saxons” since 2006, will have its name changed back to the old “England A” team when they face off against Scotland A in Leicester in June, in order “to reflect the diversity in society”. Announcing their decision to scrap the “inappropriate” nickname, an RFU spokesman told The Times: “We have chosen to revert to the traditional name of ‘England A’ for this fixture...

    Heritage Action executive director Jessica Anderson, who has continually highlighted the left’s lies on Georgia’s election integrity law, slammed Major League Baseball after it announced it would pull the All-Star game and Draft from Atlanta over the law. “It’s a shame the MLB has taken an American pastime and weaponized it against a majority of Americans who support common sense voting reforms. Maybe they should move to Beijing,” she remarked: Democrats claim the law suppresses minority votes, but this, again, is false. Heritage Action explained the Georgia law “was silent on Sunday early voting days prior to SB 202, and...

Holzer previously pleaded guilty to federal hate crime and explosives charges for plotting to blow up the Temple Emanuel Synagogue in Pueblo, Colorado, conduct that constituted acts of domestic terrorism. Holzer told undercover FBI agents that he wanted the bombing to send a message to Jewish people that they must leave his town, “otherwise people will die.”Holzer...

    At the just-wrapped Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, headlining speaker Donald Trump made an inflammatory speech from a strange, zig-zagging stage. The speech, of course, drew attention, but it featured largely the kind of content we have grown to expect from the former president. The stage itself, however, drew anger for its shape — identical to that of the Odal or Othala rune, historically used as a Nazi insignia.

    Now it is already International Human Rights Day (December 10) in the police state of Victoria in Southeast Australia and I have posted this little micro-movie to stress how important maintenance of traditions is to maintaining human rights. (NB In Australian slang a “mug” can be both a drinking cup and a dupe or person who is easily fooled and taken advantage of.) After World War Two, the world got together and established the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so that fascism could not rise again. Totalitarian group think has risen again to directly threaten the very fabric of western...

    Thanksgiving Day, November 26th this year, is an annual holiday in which we thank God for our blessings. It’s a source of nostalgic family memories of past Thanksgiving dinners, as well as remembering those who have passed away. This year, 2020, is the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival to Plymouth Rock. Remember the song, “The year 1620 the Pilgrims came over …”? Well, 1620 was 400 years ago. Who were the Pilgrims?

    Question: Why are so many of America’s young people apparently beguiled into despising America’s founding and heritage? I have had scores of Americans ask me that question in the last few months. My inquisitors have been baffled and perplexed as to why so many of our twenty and thirty- something citizens seem to so readily jettison what my questioners cherish as rich, meaningful, and critically important — an American heritage that has fostered and promoted individual human dignity (“All men are created equal”) with divinely imparted inherent rights (“and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” including “life, liberty...

    The volleys started when Carlson, in a nearly 14-minute segment, included Duckworth’s answer on CNN over the weekend when she was asked whether she also supported removing monuments honoring historical figures in U.S. history who were slave owners, such as George Washington. In her response, which went on to criticize President Donald Trump’s recent appearance at Mount Rushmore, Duckworth said there should be a national dialogue on the issue at some point. When pressed, Duckworth said, “I think we should listen to everybody.” On his show Monday night, Carlson noted that Duckworth is among the contenders to be Democrat Joe...

    The Big Con. What Senator Josh Hawley called the fraud of “the conservative bargain” is taking on an entirely new light thanks to the work of The National Pulse in what should be a game-changing expose’ on just who is funding, or should we say ‘controlling’, key aspects of expressed U.S. conservatism. President Trump, in a tenuous alignment with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has previously said the list of judicial nominees presented, considered, nominated and confirmed, were assembled and vetted by two specific groups: The Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation; both of whom claim to hold conservative outlooks....

    On Thursday, the Heritage Foundation's National Coronavirus Recovery Commission met for the first time. At the meeting, seventeen experts hammered out a general five-phase plan to "save lives and livelihoods" by defeating the coronavirus and jumpstarting the economy. Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged the commission's work. In order to slow the spread of the virus, President Donald Trump has urged Americans to stay home, practice social distancing, and avoid going into the office if their work is not "essential." State and local leaders have issued various orders, and businesses have moved to remote work or laying off employees. Unemployment has...

    My friend, Venerable Phuoc Tan, was a refugee from communist oppression in Vietnam and is a Buddhist Abbot. He has established a magnificent temple on a clifftop above the Maribyrnong River near Melbourne. VPT is a custodian of conservative, traditional values which nations like Australia desperately need, but are tragically destroying in a process that I describe as insane, suicidal self-destruction (cf Pat Buchanan “Suicide of a Superpower”) How have Vietnamese refugees contributed to American life? If you look at the little video clip here ( you can see an Australian World War Two Veteran, Trooper Al Godfrey, chatting with...
