    There Is No Peaceful Solution I hate to break it to you, but...As most of us are surely aware by now, the fermenting demographic troubles in Ireland finally boiled over last week in a flurry of rioting. The proximate cause was an Algerian immigrant who went on a stabbing spree against a woman and several children (only the latest in a series of this type of thing by Ireland’s growing foreign-born population). The deeper cause, of course, is the systematic set of policies enacted by globalist, transnational, mostly foreign “elites” who have ruled Ireland for over a decade to the...

    Daily Caller ^ | November 21, 2023 7:37 PM ET | HAILEY GOMEZ, GENERAL ASSIGNMENT REPORTER
    Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson stated at a conference that 2024 is going to be “like nothing we’ve ever seen,” referring to the upcoming presidential election and other factors. Carlson spoke at the Risk On 360! Global Success Conference in Las Vegas and discussed his views on the issues within America both politically and culturally. Carlson began his speech by highlighting how the majority of Americans he knows are “angry and paranoid.” “I flew out here across the country this morning and spent five hours texting people … and I gotta tell you, every single person I texted, with the...
  • Poll: 61 Percent of American Voters Want to Avoid Talking Politics on Thanksgiving

    Robust political discussions may not be on the menu for many Americans preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving. A Quinnipiac University poll released Monday found that about 6 out of 10 voters, or 61 percent, said they hope to avoid talking about politics during the holiday celebrations. However, the poll also said 29 percent of voters said they are eager to talk about politics. “A healthy dose of ‘zip it’ will be on the menu as voters acknowledge that if they plan on ‘talking turkey’ over the big meal, it will be about the food and not about politics,” Quinnipiac University Polling...
  • Parents' Personality Disorders Driving Surge in Trans Kids: Psychiatrists

    Epoch Times ^ | // | Darlene McCormick Sanchez
    Playing a role in the sudden rise of transgender children may be "transhausen by proxy," a term coined for narcissistic parents who push so-called "gender transitioning" on their children, some experts say. Celebrities are increasingly in the limelight with announcements about their children who come out as transgender or nonbinary. Nonbinary individuals identify as neither male nor female. "Transhausen by proxy" isn't an officially recognized psychological condition. It's a play on an official condition known as Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP). MSBP is a mental illness that's also sometimes called medical child abuse or factitious disorder imposed on others. It's...

    City Journal ^ | Autumn, 2023 | Heather Mac Donald
    Public safety has been destroyed in many American cities because of an idea. That idea holds that any law-enforcement activity that has a disparate impact on black criminals is racist. Disparate impact is why many police departments have dismantled gang databases and antigun task forces, why they have given up on public-order enforcement, and why they have all but eliminated car stops. It is why “progressive” district attorneys have stopped prosecuting trespassing, shoplifting, fare evasion, and resisting arrest, why bail is being eliminated, and why judges let repeat offenders back on the street. Disparate impact is the reason that chain...

    A series of questions on the war in Ukraine drew heated comments from multiple candidates onstage at Wednesday's Republican presidential primary debate and led to a tense exchange between Vivek Ramaswamy and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. Ramaswamy, pressed on if he supported additional funding for Ukraine as requested by President Joe Biden, said he was "absolutely unpersuaded" by pleas for aid from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. "Ukraine is not a paragon of democracy," he responded. "This is a country that has banned 11 opposition parties. It has consolidated all media into one state TV media...

    Vice President Kamala Harris’ stepdaughter — Ella Emhoff, a 24-year old woman of Jewish ancestry — has racked up over $8 million in aid for the Palestinians of Gaza. Experts caution that the aid is likely to end up in the hands of the terrorist group and governing party of the territory – Hamas. The New York Post reported on the VP family’s efforts to send aid to the people of Gaza in the aftermath of a war launched on October 7, when Hamas mercilessly killed Jewish civilians at a music festival.

    Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell bluntly warned Republican senators in a private meeting not to sign on to a bill from Sen. Josh Hawley aimed at limiting corporate money bankrolling high-powered outside groups, telling them that many of them won their seats thanks to the powerful super PAC the Kentucky Republican has long controlled. According to multiple sources familiar with the Tuesday lunch meeting, McConnell warned GOP senators that they could face “incoming” from the “center-right” if they signed onto Hawley’s bill. He also read off a list of senators who won their races amid heavy financial support from the...

    Headline USA ^ | November 2, 2023 | Luis Cornelio
    Embattled Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., found himself in the center of a political storm as documents recently surfaced, revealing that he has maintained a residence in Maryland for more than a decade while representing California’s 21st district. Mortgage records and financial disclosures obtained by CNN indicated that Schiff claimed a 3,420-square-foot property in Maryland as his primary residence, alongside a smaller 650-square-foot condo in Burbank, California. The documents, however, also uncovered his alleged utilization of the California address to mitigate a substantial $7,000 tax bill. The timing of this bombshell comes as Schiff seeks the vacant U.S. Senate seat in...

    The home of a top fundraiser to New York City Mayor Eric Adams was raided by the feds Thursday morning — as Hizzoner bailed on his slate of Washington, DC, meetings. The FBI raided the Brooklyn home of Brianna Suggs, who has served as a close consultant to the mayor, The Post has confirmed. The mayor canceled his meetings just minutes before he was supposed to sit down with White House officials for a long-sought face-to-face over the migrant crisis in NYC. Adams even flew down for the meetings, but turned around as soon as he landed to head back...

    The attorneys for John Gomes, who is challenging the results of Bridgeport’s recent Democratic mayoral primary, called two key witnesses to the stand on Friday in court, but both declined to answer questions, exerting their Fifth Amendment right against potential self-incrimination. William Bloss, Gomes’ lawyer in the high-profile election lawsuit, spent 37 minutes questioning Wanda Geter-Pataky, who sat mostly silent on the witness stand as she watched video clips that apparently feature herself placing absentee ballots into a drop box. [snip] The only questions Geter-Pataky did answer involved her job at City Hall. She was recently placed on paid administrative...

    The cultural conflict is no longer simply political. The economic value of socialism or capitalism is no longer the debate separating citizens. It is, rather, what our children are learning, whether in non-Christian state schools or even in some Christian schools, about their sexuality, their family life and the theological issues that determine ultimate meaning. The Sixties was a key moment for Western culture. It might be hard to imagine, but when I was growing up as a lad in working-class Liverpool, England, and even when I became a young man in the Fifties, I had never even heard the...

"Given (Democratic President) Joe Biden's unpopularity, Republicans can still have a successful cycle, but it's clear they won't be able to rely on the Michigan Republican Party." Karamo and a Michigan Republican Party spokesman didn't respond to requests for comment for this story.

    Talk about being too close for comfort. The 2024 presidential race is all tied up, according to the latest NBC News poll. This survey (unlike some polls), is no outlier. The race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump has been effectively tied for months. Looks like we’re in for another nail-biter. On one hand, this stalemate makes perfect sense. As Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter reminds us, Trump won the 2016 Electoral College by about 79,000 votes in three states, Biden won in 2020 by less than 45,000 in three states, and Republicans won the House by a very narrow...

    Article I, section 5 of the United States Constitution provides that "Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member." Since 1789 the Senate has expelled only 15 members. Of that number, 14 were expelled during the Civil War for supporting the Confederacy. In several other cases, the Senate considered expulsion but either dropped those proceedings or failed to act before the member left office. In those cases, corruption was the primary cause of complaint. .... 15. The Committee on Ethics recommended that...

    Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has announced plans to grant work permits and protection orders to hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals who have illegally crossed the border into the United States. Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced late Wednesday that over 700,000 illegal aliens already living in cities across America will qualify for the new protections. The program will allow 242,700 illegal aliens from Venezuela to qualify for an existing temporary protection designation, DHS said. An additional 472,000 Venezuelans are expected to qualify for the new designation to receive work permits and stay in the U.S. without fear...

    Pressed on abortion in a recent interview, Trump blasted his rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, for signing a law banning abortions after the baby has a detectable heartbeat. Trump declared, “I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake.” Trump is being honest. There is no reason to doubt that he said what he really believes: that restricting abortion to any meaningful extent is a terrible mistake and that he has no will to fight to protect human life in the womb. Before denouncing DeSantis (and, implicitly, every other Republican governor and state legislator who has...

    There's no climate emergency. And the alarmist messaging pushed by global elites is purely political. That's what 1,609 scientists and informed professionals stated when they signed the Global Climate Intelligence Group's "World Climate Declaration.""Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific," the declaration begins. "Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures."The group is an independent "climate watchdog" founded in 2019 by emeritus professor of geophysics Guus Berkhout and Marcel Crok, a...
