"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” —Thomas Jefferson

“It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error.
It is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.”
—Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson
“Immigrants soon find their place in urban life, they soon adopt, externally, town manners and opinions, but for a long time they remain foreign to civic thought. One cannot make a social philosophy one’s own as easily as a new costume. . . More menacing than barbarians storming the walls from without are the seeming citizens within – those who are citizens in gesture, but not in thought.”
—Ludwig von Mises, Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, p. 38 (1922)
“Just because you do not take an interest in politics
doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.”
—Pericles, Greek statesman, 495–429 BC

“I am certain that nothing has done so much to destroy the juridical safeguards of
individual freedom as the striving after this mirage of social justice.”
F. A. Hayek, Economic Freedom and Representative Government (1973)

Truth is always stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense. — Mark Twain

The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. — H. L. Mencken

"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, of infinite importance.
The one thing it cannot be is moderately important." — C.S. Lewis

To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil,
and in some small way to become evil oneself. —Theodore Dalrymple 


"Economic power is exercised by means of a positive, by offering men a reward,
an incentive, a payment, a value; political power is exercised by means of a negative,
by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction.
The businessman's tool is values; the bureaucrat's tool is fear."
—Novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand

Democrats Made the Supreme Court Too Important.
Now They're Panicking and Paying the Price.

Bryan Preston
The Democrats and their base are panicking as if their world is about to end because one justice out of nine died at the age of 87. Their situation, and their panic, are entirely their fault. For decades, the Democrats used the courts including the Supreme Court as a super-legislature. They have systematically misused our courts to impose policy the voters wisely would not give them.

Trump Supporters Are Having All the Fun
Don Surber
Biden supporters aren't having fun because they don't exist. If they existed, he would have won in Iowa and New Hampshire instead of finishing fourth. Oh, there will be people who vote for Biden. Millions of them. But they are voting against President Donald John Trump, not for anyone. They have no candidate, and that is not fun because they have no team really.

Faith and Family: A Look at Judge Amy Coney Barrett
Amy Coney Barrett received a shocking introduction to Washington politics when she faced off with Democratic senators in 2017 at her confirmation hearing to sit on the 7th circuit U-S Court of Appeals. At issue was her religious beliefs. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told her bluntly, "The dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern." Barrett's response was measured but on point:  "If you're asking whether I take my Catholic faith seriously, I do, though I would stress that my personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge."
GOP Fights Back Against Attacks on
Amy Coney Barrett’s Adopted Children

So much for keeping kids out of politics. Liberals on social media are questioning whether two children adopted by President Trump’s expected Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, were adopted legitimately -- as Senate Republicans leaped to defend her. “Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell,” wrote a Democratic activist and former Capitol Hill staffer, Dana Houle,
Fewer Than 1 Percent of Students, Teachers
Contracted COVID-19 Since Reopening – Brown Univ. Study

Researchers found that only 0.23 percent of students and 0.51 percent of teachers had confirmed or suspected cases of the virus. For confirmed cases specifically, the rate fell even lower with only 0.076 percent of students infected and 0.15 percent of educators. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, said this early data has indicated that school reopenings haven't been as risky as previously thought.
Senate Details Hunter Biden's Foreign Business Dealings –
Obama Officials' Efforts to Ignore Them –
John Kerry's Lies About Knowledge

While concerns over Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine didn't prompt any decisive action from the administration, they did reach the desk of Secretary of State John Kerry, contradicting his later claim that he was never aware that Hunter served on the Burisma board.
Senate Report Says Joe Biden Allowed Family to
Enrich Themselves Abroad While He Was VP

Oh, look who's Rusia-Russia-Russia? It's not President Trump. Obama knew, Biden knew, John Kerry knew, and no doubt a host of other knew. Now we'll patiently wait for the usual nothing to happen.
Biden Was Briefed About Son's Involvement,
According to Hunter Biden Burisma Report

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has "not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son's involvement in Burisma" or the problem it caused for the Obama administration, Fox News contributor Molly Hemingway said Wednesday night. Reacting to the mainstream media and Democrats downplaying the report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden's overseas dealings while his father was vice president, the Federalist senior editor said there is "truly breaking news" in the report.
DOJ Investigating How FBI Handled Allegations of
Clinton Foundation Corruption, Report Says

U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was assigned to lead the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, "has sought documents and interviews about how federal law enforcement officials handled an investigation around the same time into allegations of political corruption at the Clinton Foundation, according to people familiar with the matter," the Times reported.
Durham Looked Into Clinton Foundation
Aspects of U.S. Attorney John Huber's investigation into the Clinton Foundation have been assumed by U.S. Attorney John Durham as part of his review into the origins of the Russia probe, Fox News has learned. A source familiar with Durham's investigation told Fox News on Thursday that parts of what Huber was investigating in 2017 – involving the Clinton Foundation – have been incorporated in Durham's investigation.
The New York Times
Just Gave Definitive Proof the '1619 Project' is a Fraud

Last year, the New York Times launched its "1619 Project" with much fanfare. The project aimed to flip American history on its head, arguing that the "true founding" did not come with the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, but with the arrival of the first slaves to Virginia on August 20, 1619. Slightly more than a year after the project launched, however, the New York Times threw the 1619 Project's central claim down the memory hole. The Times stealth-edited the 1619 Project's website, removing claims about the founding.
Ballots in Pennsylvania Were Found in the Trash.
They Were All Votes for Trump.

Katie Pavlich
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has found a number of mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania discarded in the trash. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded.  Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump."
Election Watchdog Finds 350,000 Dead Registrants on
Voter Rolls In 42 States

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based election integrity group, conducted a nationwide study to identify the hundreds of thousands of deceased individuals on voter rolls. During its analysis, the group also found that nearly 40,000 likely duplicate registrants "appear to have cast second votes in 2018 from the same address." Just five states – New York, Texas, Michigan, Florida, and California – accounted for 51 percent of the total number of deceased individuals on voter rolls, according to the group.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Announces
134 Felony Fraud Charges In Connection With 2018 Dem Primary

"It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud," Paxton said in a statement. "Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level." The allegations include election fraud, tampering with a governmental record, mail-in ballot fraud and more.
Atlanta Activist Spent $200G in Black Lives Matter Donations
On House, Personal Expenses

The FBI has arrested the founder of a Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta on fraud and money laundering charges. Sir Maejor Page, 32, was accused Friday of misappropriating $200,000 in donations he solicited through Facebook on behalf of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, Fox 5 Atlanta reported Friday. Page was released on bond after appearing before a judge via video.
Kamala Harris Praises BLM,
Says Ongoing Protests Are 'essential' for Change in U.S.

"Nothing that we have achieved that has been about progress, in particular around civil rights, has come without a fight, and so I always am going to interpret these protests as an essential component of evolution in our country -- as an essential component or mark of a real democracy," the vice presidential nominee said during the NAACP's national convention.
Wind Turbines Generate Mountains of Waste
Blade Waste Alone Proves Wind is No More Green Than Solar

Duggan Flanakin
Environmentalists and wind energy opportunists (entrepreneurs who take advantage of overly generous tax credits and multiple other subsidies) want you to believe wind energy is as pure “green” as newly driven snow is white, and as cheap as Taco Bell. They never tell you about the costs -- or the environmental destruction -- that they have hidden from you for decades.
Biden Said He Was a Student at Delaware State University;
School Says Otherwise

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden alleged on the campaign trail last year that he had jumpstarted his academic career at Delaware State University. However, according to a new report in The Washington Times, the historically Black college refutes Biden's claims. The director of news service for Delaware State, Carlos Holmes, said that the former vice president was never a student, though he has made appearances on campus twice before for commencement speeches at the university in Dover.
GOP Senators Enter Bill to Protect Girls' Sports from Transgenders –
Sex Based on Biology at Birth

 Five Republican senators, led by Kelly Loeffler (Ga.), have introduced legislation to protect women and girls in sports from biological males who claim to be transgender "females" and seek to participate in women's sports. The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act would "make it a violation of Title IX for a school that receives federal education funds to permit a biological male to participate in a sports program designated for women and girls"...
Man Accused of Derailing NYC Subway
Was Freed Without Bail for Similar Incident

The man accused of derailing a Manhattan subway train by tossing metal construction debris on to the tracks on Sunday was released without bail on a prior case, outraging one victim's husband.

Ted Cruz Explains Perfectly Why
RBG's Seat Must Be Filled Before the Election

Matt Margolis
Republican Senator Ted Cruz says President Donald Trump needs to nominate a successor Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg next week, and that the Senate should confirm that choice or the country risks a constitutional crisis. "Democrats and Joe Biden have made clear they intend to challenge this election. They intend to fight the legitimacy of the election. 
Why the Country Needs a filled Supreme Court for the 2020 Election
Michael Goodwin
Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have precedents on their side in that history is sprinkled with election-year high-court nominations and confirmations when the White House and Senate are controlled by the same party. Dem Presidents FDR and Woodrow Wilson did it, with Wilson having two nominations confirmed in 1916 as he sought re-election.
3 Reasons Mitch McConnell Is Not a Hypocrite for
Considering Trump's Potential RBG Replacement

Tyler O'Neil
Ginsburg was an impressive woman, and we should mourn her passing, but Election Day is fast approaching and one of the major reasons Americans elected Trump in 2016 was the Supreme Court. on Friday night after Ginsburg's death, McConnell announced the Senate would consider any nominee President Donald Trump put forward. A chorus of voices on the Left condemned McConnell as a hypocrite.
History Is on the Side of Republicans
Filling a Supreme Court Vacancy in 2020

Dan McLaughlin – August 7, 2020 prior to RBG's passing
If a Supreme Court vacancy opens up between now and the end of the year, Republicans should fill it. Given the vital importance of the Court to rank-and-file Republican voters and grassroots activists, particularly in the five-decade-long quest to overturn Roe v. Wade, it would be political suicide for Republicans to refrain from filling a vacancy unless some law or important traditional norm was against them. There is no such law and no such norm; those are all on their side.
Trump, Nominate RBG Replacement Now –
Here's Why It's So Important

Rep. Andy Biggs
A Republican senator said she would not support a pre-election nominee because, "fair is fair." The implication is that following the Constitution and Senate rules is unfair. The rulebook here is the U.S. Constitution, which is silent on the timing of appointments to the Supreme Court. What would really be unfair is to effectively shorten the term of President Trump by failing to consider his SCOTUS nominee because of the upcoming election. Waiting would undermine the will of the people who elected him in 2016 for a full four-year term, and not for a term of office that has constraints put on his constitutional authority by selfish senators.
The Magnetic Genius Behind the Branding of the Abraham Accords
Bryan Preston
On Tuesday in a White House ceremony, President Donald Trump made history. The United States, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates signed the Abraham Accords. Bahrain has also joined the Accords. Seeing the flags of Arab countries projected alongside the Israeli flag on the walls of the Old City in Jerusalem to mark a new peace agreement was all but unthinkable a month ago. It's history in the making, whether the so-called mainstream media acknowledges it or not.
The Abraham Accords Peace Deal How Trump Made It Happen
Jeff Dunetz
Last week when the President announced that Bahrain would join the UAE today in signing the accords, the mainstream media barely covered the historic achievement by President Trump. But, even those in the media who covered this President Trump's peace achievement didn't cover (or understand) how Trump made it happen.
That New 'Whistle-Blower' Complaint Presented by Adam Schiff
Just Blew up; DHS Has Emails

With so much going on, this story has sort of flown under the radar, though RedState did offer thorough coverage of the details when it first broke. Rep. Adam Schiff has yet another "whistle-blower" making wild claims from an obviously partisan, anti-Trump perch.
Biden Says We Need a President Who Tells the Truth?
Then Here Are 8 Big Whoppers That Disqualify Him

Stacey Lennox
This list is by no means comprehensive. Biden suddenly says he will bolster manufacturing in America while telling Jake Tapper we want China to grow. Yes, he actually said we want our biggest ideological and economic foe to grow. The primary vehicle for China's growth is American investment.
Catholic Cardinal: 'It's Better to Vote for a Good Protestant
Than a Bad Catholic'

Michael W. Chapman
When asked about the group "Catholics for Biden" and whether a Catholic can vote for someone who is pro-abortion and anti-family, Cardinal Gerhard Muller, the former doctrinal chief at the Vatican, said Catholics must have "the right understanding of life" and human rights and that it is "better to vote for a good Protestant than a bad Catholic."
A Bug in Joe Biden's Campaign App
Gave Anyone Access to Millions of Voter Files

Zack Whittaker
The App Analyst, a mobile expert who detailed his findings on his eponymous blog, found that he could trick the app into pulling in anyone's information by creating a contact on his phone with the voter's name. Worse, he told TechCrunch, the app pulls in a lot more data than it actually displays. By intercepting the data that flows in and out of the device, he saw far more detailed and private information...
Oh, the Irony of Tyrannical Leftists Decrying 'Fascism'
David Limbaugh
The fascist left regularly typifies the very qualities it professes to abhor. The only thing more pronounced than its totalitarianism is its stunning lack of self-awareness. It's ironic that leftists think of themselves as liberals, as the term "liberal" is historically and etymologically connected to the concept of liberty.
It's Official: Trump Unleashed a Middle-Class Boom That
Benefited Women, Minorities Most

I & I Editorial Board
Not that you'd ever know it from the media blackout, but households have seen the biggest jump in real median income in at least 52 years. The poverty rate is lower than it's been since at least 1959, the annual Census report on income and poverty shows. These are incredible achievements that would be leading every newspaper and TV news program if they had happened under a Democratic president.
'Climate arson' and Other Wildfire Nonsense
Paul Driessen
The raging fires in our long mismanaged forests are not natural. They are not what used to burn with regularity through America’s forests. A century of fire suppression and fuel accumulation means they turn into superheated infernos. Manage them properly first. Then let nature work again.
Deputies Investigating 'suspicious fires' in Linn County, Oregon
Beginning around 2:41 a.m., Deputies and firefighters responded to eight small fires. All the fires occurred within a two-hour period and were discovered in the areas of Scott Mountain Road and Whiskey Butte Drive near Sweet Home, as well as Washburn Heights Drive near Brownsville. The sheriff's office declined to expand on why the fires were considered suspicious, or whether or not they appeared man-made.
Evidence of Criminal Human Activity Causing Wildfires,
Not Climate Change

Chris Farrell
As wildfires rip through the Pacific states, environmentalists and liberal politicians are blaming man-caused global warming. But the particular severity of this year's fires may be traced to a different cause: arson. There's evidence of criminal human activity causing forest fires. Over a dozen people have been charged recently with setting western wildfires.
Joe Biden Spent Decades Warning of Voter Fraud –
 Now Called a Myth by Dems

The Democratic Party line treats voter fraud as little more than a GOP fever dream – yet the party’s presidential candidate Joe Biden spent decades of his career sounding the alarm about it. Biden, the Democratic standard bearer, consistently shared GOP concerns about voter fraud during his 36 years as a United States senator from Delaware.
Joe Biden Votes In Person, Wrecks the Democrats'
'We Need Mail-In Voting' Narrative

Stacey Lennox
Democrats probably should have clued in Joe Biden's handlers. Democrat leaders in Congress have been pushing for wholesale change to our election procedures due to the pandemic. They have held up COVID relief legislation to force mail-in voting and other changes, such as ballot harvesting nationwide and all kinds of money for their friends in the postal workers union. Unfortunately for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, their nominee just blew their case.
Hunter Biden Offered D.C. Access to Chinese Company in

Hunter Biden touted his family's political clout to solicit a $5 million investment from China for his U.S.-based financial advisory firm, according to a court filing by a white-collar convict who claims he had an inside view into Biden's murky foreign business dealings.
Excuse Me? Pennsylvania Will Accept Mail-in Ballots
Whose Signatures Don't Match

Matt Vespa
Remember the Democratic firm that said Donald Trump could have a huge lead on election night that will end with Joe Biden beating him due to mail-in ballots? Well, Pennsylvania just made that scheme easier by trashing the voter signature provision. Counties in the Keystone State were told they can't reject a ballot over an election official's objections regarding signatures.
Republicans Demand Answers On Mueller Team Wiping Phones,
Suggest 'anticipatory obstruction of justice'

Congressional Republicans demanded answers on Friday as to whether there "was a widespread intentional effort" to wipe the mobile devices of multiple people on former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team during the Russia probe, and suggested this could amount to "anticipatory obstruction of justice." [Sen.] Grassley wrote that "based on this new information, the number of times and the stated reasons for the deletions calls into question whether or not it was a widespread intentional effort."
Sidney Powell On Wiped Mueller Team Phones: 'Obstruction of Justice and Destruction of Evidence of the Worst Sort'
Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell, believes that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigatory team may just be guilty of one of the very crimes they'd tried to pin on the president, obstruction of justice. Speaking Thursday on Fox Business Network's "The Evening Edit," she responded to breaking news that 27 of the phones used by Mueller's team had been wiped clean before the Department of Justice's inspector general could scrutinize them.
Solar Panels Generate Mountains of Waste
Duggan Flanakin
The problem of solar panel waste is now becoming evident. “Solar presents a particular problem. There is growing evidence that broken panels release toxic pollutants … [and] increasing concern regarding what happens with these materials when they are no longer viable, especially since they are difficult to recycle.” Harnessing sunshine (and wind) to serve humanity is not free – or clean, green, renewable or sustainable.
FBI Director Wray: 'Antifa is a real thing,'
FBI Has Cases Against People Identifying With Movement

FBI Director Chris Wray made clear that Antifa is not a made-up, right-wing conspiracy theory and that the FBI has cases involving those connected to it. Appearing at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing Thursday, Wray explained that while Antifa is not an organization in the traditional sense, it is a movement and there have been suspects who claimed to be a part of it.
Straight Outta Marxism: BLM Protesters Take Over Grocery Store to
Protest Lack of 'Access' to Grocery Stores

Bryan Preston
Black Lives Matter activists occupied a Trader Joe's in Seattle this week, claiming to be protesting "lack of access to grocery stores" and explaining to patrons "how capitalism exploits the working class." That "capitalism" line is straight from Marxism. BLM founders do admit to being "trained Marxists."

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder
Describes Herself as 'trained Marxist'

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are "trained Marxists" – making clear their movement's ideological foundation, according to a report. Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview...
CDC Walks Back COVID-19 Guidelines, Now Urges Tests for
Asymptomatic – Attn Joe Biden: 'science' is Unsettled

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday walked back a previous revision it made to its COVID-19 testing recommendations. The body now says that anyone exposed to someone with the virus should be tested, even if they have no symptoms. This includes people who have spent at least 15 minutes within 6 feet of someone confirmed to have the virus.
The Surprising Gullibility of the Washington Post
Becket Adams
I can see why the Washington Post’s coverage of the Russia investigation was so spotty. Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman are parasitical right-wing hoaxers. They use overly dramatic and embarrassingly incompetent publicity stunts to peddle lurid conspiracy theories and disinformation to a gullible few. This is what they do. On Monday, the loathsome twosome apparently even staged a fake FBI raid on Burkman’s residence in Arlington, Virginia. Amazingly, the Washington Post fell for the scam.
Instead of Raising Penalties for ALL Child Predators,
CA Gov Newsom Softens Penalties for Gay Pedophiles

Author of SB 145, Senator Scott Wiener, says the bill allows gays to have sex with kids if there's a ten years or less age disparity between the predator and the child. Wiener says this is just evening up the score between gays and straights. Heterosexuals engaging in sex, for example a 24-year-old man having sex with a 15-year-old, doesn't necessarily have to sign up to be on a sex registry. A group called Equality California said in a news release that the new law evened the scored between gay and straight sex with children.
Is the CDC Downplaying the
Efficacy of Hydroxychloroquine to 'Resist' Trump?

Matt Margolis
There are currently about a hundred studies on the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 (61 of them peer-reviewed) that overwhelmingly show positive results, particularly when administered early. Yet, according to the CDC, "the potential benefits of [hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine] do not outweigh their risks." Yeah, okay.

AG Barr Rips National Media as a
'Collection of Liars' Over Riot Coverage

Katie Pavlich
"They're basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media. They're a collection of liars and they know exactly what they're doing. A perfect example of that were the riots. Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals and they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise...
Has the Second American Civil War Already Started?
Tyler O'Neil
Is America about to face its second civil war? The Portland antifa ally suspected of shooting a Trump supporter said a civil war was "right around the corner." Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta war-gamed the 2020 election and suggested that Joe Biden may cry foul if he loses, starting off a chain reaction resulting in secession and a civil war.
Chinese Virologist Claims She Has Proof
COVID-19 Was Made In Wuhan Lab

A Chinese virologist who has reportedly been in hiding for fear of her safety has stepped out into the public eye again to make the explosive claim that she has the scientific evidence to prove COVID-19 was man-made in a lab in China. Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a scientist who says she did some of the earliest research into COVID-19 last year, made the comments Friday during an interview on British talk show "Loose Women."
People Trust the Media Less Than Trump on COVID. Here's Why
Stephen L. Miller
The national media is now less trusted than President Trump to provide accurate information and analysis about COVID-19, according to a CBS poll of registered voters. Think about the sheer hubris and raw effort that must have taken! All those months of politicizing public health, downplaying the spread of the virus through protests and riots, doubting coronavirus treatments, and trying to get Anthony Fauci to bad-mouth the President, have finally paid off.
The Smear Continues
Gary Bauer
Predictably, the fake news media did their best to make the disgusting smear by The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg the dominant three-day news story over the Labor Day weekend. At least a dozen individuals who were with the president in France have all publicly rejected Goldberg's claims. The allegation is that these offensive remarks were said during a particular meeting. Everyone, with the exception of Gen. John Kelly, who was in that meeting has publicly denied it.
Trump Thanks John Kelly Aide
Who Denied Hearing President Call Fallen Marines Losers

Former White House deputy chief of staff Zach Fuentes earned President Trump's gratitude after he denied a recent report in The Atlantic that claimed the president disparaged American veterans and fallen soldiers. Fuentes – who worked under then-chief of staff John Kelly – also claimed to Breitbart that his former boss would not have tolerated such disdain for the armed forces, even from the president. "Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?" he told the publication.
Dozens of Cell Phones Used by Mueller Team Were
'Accidentally Wiped' Before DOJ Could Review

Numerous cell phones from special counsel Robert Mueller's team were "accidentally wiped" before the Department of Justice inspector general was able to review the devices, according to newly released government records. "The records show at least several dozen phones were wiped of information because of forgotten passcodes, irreparable screen damage, loss of the device, intentional deletion or other reasons – and came before the DOJ's Office of Inspector General could review the devices."
McEnany Calls Out White House Press Corps for
Lack of Interest In Mueller Team Wiping Phones

"They don't care," McEnany told host Sean Hannity. "How many times have I been asked questions about very legitimate things like Michael Flynn, the injustice done to him? McEnany's comments came after the DOJ released records showing that the phones of multiple individuals involved in the Russia investigation were wiped of information for various reasons.
Is Critical Race Training Illegal?
John Hinderaker
It may well be, if inflicted on a company's or government agency's employees. In July, the City of Seattle required employees to attend training on "Internalized Racial Superiority for White People." Last week, U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow wrote a letter to Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan. Kirsanow questioned the legality of the City's "training" program under federal civil rights law:

Trump Is Unloading Both Barrels on Critical Race Theory Just in Time
Stephen Kruiser
Critical race theory is the rocket fuel that makes BLM violent. None of it is about George Floyd, despite the constant media reassurances that that's what is motivating them. The BLM/Antifa violence is obviously playing into Trump's hands. The riots may guarantee his re-election. It speaks well of his leadership instincts – that his detractors say he doesn't have – that he'd rather expose them and shut them down even if it might work out better for him if they continued to rage on.
The Democrats' Mental Problem
Joan Swirsky
It's not a recent observation on my part; it goes back decades, so I've had a long time to figure out the meaning of this peculiar phenomenon. Specifically, it's that Conservatives like me seem to enjoy the lion's share of being in a good mood, feeling optimistic, trusting that the many forms of rugged individualism can solve most problems, smiling easily and often, and generally seeing both the present and future as glasses half full. Not one of these things can be said of leftists...
Norwegian Official Nominates Trump for Nobel Peace Prize,
Takes Shot at Obama

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, has nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after the administration helped facilitate a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," said Tybring-Gjedde. "The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing."
Bahrain Follows Emirates In Normalizing Ties With Israel
"This is truly a historic day," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, saying he believed other countries would follow suit. "Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region," the United States, Bahrain and Israel said in a joint statement.
Three Ways Trump's Israel-UAE Peace Breakthrough
Transformed the Middle East This Week

Bryan Preston
President Trump's Israel-United Arab Emirates diplomatic breakthrough continues rippling out across the world. The most significant outcome from the Israel-UAE deal to date is what the Arab League did, or rather did not do, this week. The Palestinians, whose leaders have denounced the rapprochement between Israel and the UAE, attempted to get the Arab League to condemn the deal.

Netflix Faces Boycott After Their "Movie" Sexualizing Little Girls is
Released and Scenes Goes Viral

On Thursday, #CancelNetflix trended on Twitter amid a new wave of calls to boycott the streaming service after a scene from the movie Cuties went viral. The movie, about a group of eleven-year-old girls who form a twerking dance group, previously sparked controversy due to the sexualized poster used by Netflix to promote the movie. Now, following its Netflix release, a scene from Cuties showing the girls dancing in a sexualized manner for an audience of adults has led to new calls for a boycott.

Members of Congress Demand Netflix is Investigated by DOJ for 'distributing child porn' After Outrage Over 'Cuties' Which Viewers Claim 'sexualizes young girls and could encourage pedophilia'
Members of congress from across the political spectrum are demanding action be taken, including a possible investigation by the Department of Justice into the Netflix streaming platform after the release of a controversial new film, Cuties. The film depicts young girls in a dance group, all dressed in risque outfits and performing sexually suggestive choreography.

The Depraved Sexual Exploitation of Children in Netflix's 'Cuties'
Is Coming to a School Near You -- if It Hasn't Already

Stacey Lennox
There is an online freak-out today about the Netflix movie Cuties. To drive home the point about how far down the slippery slope we have gone, we have compiled some pretty shocking threads on social media. A Twitter user by the name of Ghost Jim put together a thread that shows the level of child exploitation in this film. He also noted the people who have praised the film and how it is relevant to several topics in our current political environment. One example is the recently passed legislation in California, which lowers penalties for adults who have sexual relations with minors.
Secret Service Admits to Destroying Records in
Alleged Biden Breast-Grabbing Incident

Tyler Durden
"We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President's house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend's asses," said the former agent, adding "He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible." The agent also claimed Biden would walk around naked in the VP residence.
Recalling EPA’s Gold King Mine disaster – Part 1
Duggan Flanakin
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen described the incident this way: A contractor under EPA supervision used a backhoe to dig away tons of rock and debris that were blocking the entrance portal of the Gold King Mine, which had been mostly abandoned since 1923. Because of steady seepage, the EPA should have known that the water was highly acidic (pH 4.0-4.5) and laced with heavy metals. It could and should certainly have checked. Eventually, the greatly weakened portal burst open, unleashing at least 3 million gallons of toxic water...

The notorious, devastating accident turned Cement Creek and the Animas, San Juan and Colorado Rivers yellow all the way from Colorado through New Mexico and Utah and into Lake Powell. Indeed, the Obama Administration made it very clear early on that neither the EPA nor the Federal Emergency Management Agency would provide just compensation for the damages caused by the incident.

Oil Spill Ravages Venezuelan Shores

An oil spill has unleashed a wave of devastation onto the shores of Venezuela's Morrocoy National Park and its mangroves, gravely endangering its fragile ecosystem. The lack of official information and accountability from the socialist regime gets in the way of assessing the extent of the damage, leaving Venezuelan citizens, and the world, with more questions than answers. Experts claim that the area could take up to fifty years to recover.
Climate Change: Most Brazen Scientific Hoax in Human History
John Eidson
Based on years of terrifying reports about the climate, I was a firm believer in man-made global warming theory as recently as 11 years ago. My position abruptly changed in 2009, when a climate research cheating scandal rocked the scientific world to the core. Hacked emails among highly influential scientists at the center of worldwide hysteria over climate change revealed routine data tampering and other instances of flagrant scientific misconduct.
California Is Now a Third-World Country

FLASHBACK: Kamala Harris Praised California Energy Policy
That's Causing Rolling Blackouts

Stacey Lennox
If her comments from 2017 are any indication, she expected that by this year California would get 50% of its energy from renewable sources... This issue matters because it is clear that Joe Biden leading on anything is not going to happen. As vice president, it would be Harris and the cabinet determining policy until Biden steps down. Polling shows a majority of Americans believe Biden will not complete his first term, and indeed, his low-key campaign, with few extemporaneous appearances, supports this thesis.
'Riding the Dragon' Documentary Alleges
Biden Family Self-Enrichment from China

The documentary is broken into six chapters, each dissecting a different deal that the Bidens made with the Chinese government – including one deal in which China planned to invest more than $1 billion in the Hunter Biden-co-owned investment fund Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). Hunter Biden alone pocketed millions of dollars while his father served as Barack Obama's vice president and "point man" on China policy.
Biden Sold Out America to China While Working for Hollywood
Daniel Greenfield – Flashback: Fri May 8, 2020
Outside the JW Marriot in Los Angeles, Rev. Eddie Perez Romero was being handcuffed by the LAPD. Rev. Romero was holding up a "Free China" sign outside a Chinese Ministry of Commerce conference. Inside was the LAPD's boss Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, along with Governor Jerry Brown, and Vice President Joe Biden, who were palling around with China's future dictator, Xi Jinping.
Biden's Press Secretary Flips Out When Asked if
Biden Uses a Teleprompter During Interviews

For months now, it's been clear that Joe Biden has been using a teleprompter for supposedly off-the-cuff campaign interviews and conversations. In April, when Bernie endorsed Joe Biden, they had a live stream conversation on Periscope where it was clear Biden was reading off a script. Since then there's been a lot more evidence of Biden reading off a teleprompter, and rather poorly, even during interviews with the media.
I'll take that as a "yes," then.
Chinese Funding Corrupting the College Board
National Association of Scholars
In exchange for generous Chinese government funding, the College Board has given China strategic access to American K-12 education. Since at least 2003, the College Board has sponsored Confucius Institutes at K-12 schools, served as a recruiter for Chinese government programs, and helped the Chinese Communist Party design and gain control over American teacher training programs.

The Left and NeverTrumpers Justify Murder for

Dennis Saffran
America has a history of assassinations and attempted assassinations of political leaders. Saturday night we crossed the line into the assassination of ordinary partisans, shot down on the streets for their political beliefs. And the side of the now-hot culture war that led us over that line is the very one that typically lectures the rest of us about gun violence.
The Deeply Pessimistic Intellectual Roots of Black Lives Matter,
the '1619 Project' and Much Else in Woke America

John Murawski, RealClearInvestigations
If much of the dire rhetoric behind America's moment of racial reckoning seems from an oppressive world of a half-century ago, that's because it comes from "critical race theory," a decades-old philosophy deeply skeptical about the possibility of racial progress. The New York Times' historically revisionist 1619 Project, published last year and distributed to more than 3,500 K-12 classrooms, similarly instructs that "anti-black racism runs in the very DNA of this country."
Trump Didn't Cancel Visit to American Military Cemetery in France
Over Disdain for Slain Veterans, Sources Say

John Roberts, Tyler Olson
President Trump canceled a planned 2018 trip to a cemetery for American war dead in France because of the weather and not because of disdain for the slain soldiers who are buried there or concern about how the weather would affect his hair, sources told Fox News, despite a report from The Atlantic making that claim. Two sources who were on the trip in question with Trump refuted the main thesis of The Atlantic's reporting – that Trump canceled a trip to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, which is at the site of Belleau Wood, an important World War I battle, because he believed the dead soldiers to be "losers" and "suckers."
The Atlantic Barfs Up 2020's Worst Trump Hit Piece Yet

Pelosi's Salon-Gate: The Blow-Dry Heard 'Round the World
Bryan Preston
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has represented Congress from California for a very long time. Too long, frankly, for a healthy republic. Gov. Newsom is her nephew. Gov. Newsom is still keeping businesses, including hair salons, closed across the state... Earlier this week, Pelosi needed to go on TV and take softball questions from our broken media. She needed to fix her hair before going on TV.  So she texted her favorite hair salon, despite the fact that it has been closed for months thanks to her nephew's tyrannical ways, as she surely knew, both because she knows him and because she knows politics.

Scientific Rebuttal of Kamala Harris's Unscientific Climate Tweet

Honestly, sometimes I marvel at things like this. It's like shooting fish in a barrel. Outrageous statements such as these [Kamala's] are gifts that keep on giving.

Most people seem to believe that wind and solar panels produce no waste and have no negative environmental impacts. Unfortunately, these people are wrong... Not only are solar panels not required to be recycled, their disposal can lead to potential environmental problems. If broken panels in landfills can leach lead or other heavy metals, it stands to reason that other broken panels at solar arrays could potentially result in similar contamination.

Gates didn't just dream this up on his own accord. He is actually resurrecting legislation a bill introduced in 2008 by then Senator Barack Obama. It was called the Global Poverty Act.

White George Washington Univ. History Professor Admits
She Lied About Being Black

A George Washington University professor admitted in a Thursday blog post that she has for years been falsely claiming to be Black, when she is in fact White and Jewish. Jessica A.

The companies Kennedy is invested in could benefit from a less forceful approach to China's economy.

Despite our long history of electoral politics, the Democrats’ latest political play is a fabricated conspiracy theory that Republicans are using the U.S. Postal Service’s operational changes to disenfranchise the American people. Not only is this narrative not based in fact, but it is also a threat to the security of our elections. The fact is that any changes to the USPS have nothing to do with universal mail-in voting. These changes began before President Trump even took office.

The facts about the Blake case do not show a group of white officers taking advantage of a crisis situation so they could shoot another black man. Reports indicate a starkly different story – the policemen were there to protect a woman, a black woman, we’re assuming, based on what we’ve learned, from Blake.
