    Fox News political analyst Juan Williams told his co-hosts on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Five” that people on the right “put out lies” that “cities burned last summer” during the Black Lives Matter demonstrations. Williams said, “I think the far left of the Democratic Party and all their woke language really alienates a lot of moderate voters not only in the Democratic Party but people who are on the right and you might have been discontented with President Trump, and they hear all this stuff, and they think this is a little too far for their taste.” He continued, “I...
  • Education Disaster

    The 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress report, also known as The Nation's Report Card, shows that U.S. educational achievement, to put it nicely, leaves much to be desired. When it comes to reading and math skills, just 34 percent and 33 percent, respectively, of U.S. eighth-grade students tested proficient or above -- that is, performed at grade level or above. Recent test scores show poor achievement levels in other academic areas. Only 18 percent of eighth-graders are proficient in U.S. history. It's 27 percent in geography and 23 percent in civics. The story is not much better when it...

    Major Williams, a conservative Republican running for California governor, wants to eliminate state taxes, make the Golden State pro-Second Amendment, and implement public-private partnerships to efficiently solve common issues that Californians face. "So my team, we've created this umbrella called the Restore California Plan," Williams told the John Solomon Reports podcast." "Within a Restore California Plan, we're looking at the budget. Once we get in there, we want to do a forensic audit. "Once we do the forensic audit, we have an opportunity to look at the wasteful spending, which California has a lot of, and reallocate those funds to...

    Many of the young people rioting today are not committed Marxist revolutionaries. (There are large, powerful, dark forces behind the riots; the actual rioters are just political fodder.) Many are rioting largely because it's considered by their peers and their influencers to be the cool, popular thing to do. In that, they are the most recent iteration of the popular American "counterculture" that began in the mid-20th century and has traveled hand in hand with left-wing politics (and has, alarmingly, gained the upper hand in the popular culture). That counterculture has a lineage that goes back to the Beat Poets,...

    “It is what it is.” Well, Mr. President, the wife of the late David Nagy thinks you are wrong. She is furious at you about the death of her 79-year-old husband. “Family members believe David’s death was needless,” Stacey Nagy wrote in her husband’s newspaper obituary. “They blame his death ... on Trump, [Texas Gov. Greg] Abbott and all the politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives.” Mrs. Nagy’s anger at Trump fits with the political message in another obituary in North Carolina: “In lieu of flowers, think...

    CNS News ^ | January 28, 2020 | Walter E. Williams
    During President Donald J. Trump's impeachment trial, we'll hear a lot of talk about our rules for governing. One frequent claim is that our nation is a democracy. If we've become a democracy, it would represent a deep betrayal of our founders, who saw democracy as another form of tyranny. In fact, the word democracy appears nowhere in our nation's two most fundamental documents, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. The founders laid the ground rules for a republic as written in the Constitution's Article IV, Section 4, which guarantees "to every State in this Union a Republican...

    Jennifer Williams, a foreign service officer and aide to Vice President Pence who testified in the House impeachment inquiry, has asked to leave her post early. Politico reported Thursday that Williams, who is on detail from the State Department, plans to leave her position in Pence’s office early in order to join Central Command. Pence’s chief of staff Marc Short subsequently told The Hill in a statement that Williams had requested an early departure from her role, set to end in March, and that the office is “evaluating her request.” “Jennifer Williams, a State Department employee detailed to the Vice...

    It is time to name the year’s top member of Congress. For 2019, the winner is a woman who also stars in the political picture of the year. Take a look at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a sea of men, literally standing up to President Trump at the White House. On that day, she pointedly reminded him that a majority of House Republicans joined her Democratic caucus in voting to condemn him for pulling troops out of Syria. The picture was so powerful that the White House released it and in act of pure spin described it as proof...

    Celebrated Christian evangelist Franklin Graham has taken issue with the Democrats’ extreme push of the LGBTQ agenda, saying he will stand with biblical morality. “I will not bow down at the altar of the LGBTQ agenda nor worship their rainbow pride flag,” Rev. Graham said in reaction to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip churches of their tax-exempt status if they do not recognize homosexual marriage. “I’m going to stand with the Word of God, the Holy Bible, which is truth from cover to cover,” Graham added in a three-part tweet Friday evening. Rev. Graham, the son of “America’s Pastor,” Billy...

    PARIS (AP) — This was one mistake too far for Serena Williams. Sure, the bad backhand put her behind only 15-30 at the outset of the second set of her opening match at Roland Garros on Monday. What made the miscue so bothersome? She’d already dropped the first set against 83rd-ranked Vitalia Diatchenko — and Williams’ unforced error total already was at 15 on a windy evening. So she reacted by throwing her head back and letting out a scream. Then she stepped to the baseline to serve and stomped her right foot.
