Now in our 21st year
"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

Trump Didn’t Sell Out the Kurds by Pulling Out of Syria
Kenneth R. Timmerman
The national media blasted President Trump’s withdrawal of 50 US military advisors from the Syrian border with Turkey as a “sellout,” a “betrayal” and a “huge strategic blunder.” Let’s be clear: None of them truly care about the Kurds. Otherwise, they would have been sending correspondents and camera crews to Rojava, as the Kurds call northern Syria, on a regular basis.

How Erdogan Planned This Ethnic Cleansing All Along
Malcolm Lowe
As the Voice of America itself reported on January 23, Erdogan's plan was to resettle three million or more refugees from other parts of Syria in this "security zone" extending twenty miles deep into Syria. Twenty miles may not sound much, but - the VOA omitted to mention – almost all the Kurdish towns of northeastern Syria lie within that area.

AG Barr Expands Mysterious Review
Into Origin of Russia Investigation

The prosecutor conducting the review, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expressed his intent to interview a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russia’s effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, Brennan told NBC News.
Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham Shreds Pelosi
Over Antics in Meeting with Trump

"I'll tell you what. I was in that meeting," Grisham said. "The president walked in. He greeted everybody, as he does, and Speaker Pelosi started out the meeting – it was actually quite bizarre. She had no intentions of sitting there. We had military people. We had people there to brief them. And she was not going to listen." "She got up. She stormed out. Her focus was getting to the cameras," Grisham continued. "It was funny to watch Schumer chase after her.
Pelosi and Impeachment – There Have Already Been 3 Votes.
Here's Why There May Not Be a Fourth

Jason Chaffetz
Speaker Pelosi isn't refusing to hold a vote on impeachment. She is refusing to hold a fourth vote on impeachment. There have already been three votes.  They all failed. Miserably. In other words, Congress has explicitly voted NOT to pursue impeachment. In December 2017, January 2018, and against in July 2019 under Pelosi's leadership, the House held votes on whether to open an impeachment inquiry. The results weren't even close.
The Democrats' Debate Was Unconstitutional
I & I Editorial Board
Tuesday night's CNN/New York Times debate of the Democratic presidential candidates was filled with propositions to radicalize American society, from confiscation of law-abiding citizens' guns to adopting Canada's single-payer health system ... But, astonishingly, it also showcased casual discussion of the federal government adopting policies that would stab the Constitution of the United States in the heart – in particular those of Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Trump Campaign To Sue CNN Over Pro-Impeachment Bias,
Demands 'substantial payment'

Paul Bedard

In a four-page letter to CNN, Zucker, and Executive Vice President David Vigilante, Trump attorney Charles J. Harder cited years of anti-Trump bias at the network and claimed the cable giant has broken its promise of "excellence in journalism." He added, "Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called 'mainstream' news, as the current situation."
Study: Latino-Owned Businesses Growing at
Record Pace in Trump Economy

Latino-owned businesses are experiencing significant growth thanks to a strong economy, a Biz2Credit study found. Rohit Arora, Biz2Credit’s CEO, said Latino business owners are enjoying a 46 percent jump in revenue this year, which will bolster the nation’s thriving economy.
Terror Attacks in France: A Culture of Denial
Alain Destexhe
Beyond the political sphere, there is also a culture a denial of the Islamist threat in the French media. Journalists, academics and politicians, with a few exceptions, have consistently played down not only the risk of terrorist attacks but also the threat of growing Salafist radicalization in the country.
NYT: Venezuela's Water System is Collapsing
The brick shack on the outskirts of Venezuela's capital is crowded with tubs, jugs and buckets. The water they hold must last the family of eight for a week – but it's not enough for frequent washing or flushing, so the kitchen is filled with greasy pots and the house smells of stale urine. And none of the water is treated, making diarrhea and vomit a regular occurrence.
ICE Identifies Hundreds of Migrants Allegedly Lying
About Their Family Status

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in the El Paso area have identified 238 fraudulent families, 50 adults falsely claiming to be minors, and have seized hundreds of documents attempting to support these migrants’ claims, according to an ICE statement released Thursday.
California Governor Signs Bill Letting
Murderers and Violent Criminals Serve on Juries

Law Enforcement Today
Now, in another sign that the inmates are running the prison, the governor of California has approved "The Right to a Jury of Your Peers". It's a move that will allow people with a prior felony conviction to serve on juries in California for the first time. Prior to this, there was a law in California that excluded felons from jury service.
Explosive Text Messages Reveal Boeing Knew of
MCAS Aggression in 2016 and Misled FAA

The two lead technical pilots on the Boeing 737 Max program exchanged bantering texts in 2016 revealing that the plane's flight control system, which two years later went haywire on the two crash flights in Indonesia and Ethiopia, was behaving aggressively and strangely in their simulator sessions. Boeing has known about these messages for many months.
Subsidized Diners Demand We Pay Mandatory Tips
Michael Shannon
I may have discovered the real reason people living in blue states don't contribute as much to charity as those living in red states. It's not that they are hypocrites whose compassion doesn't extend to their own wallets. It's because all their discretionary giving is going to restaurant tips. Getting woke is getting expensive.
Verizon Scrambles to Unload HuffPost Amidst
Huge Layoffs and Turmoil – Fake News Sites Are Crumbling.

AOL bought HuffPost back in 2011 for $315 million, and then Verizon gained control over the leftist news site after they acquired AOL in 2015 for a stunning $4.4 billion. They are now looking to dump it as the public grows weary of fake news, particularly the site’s biased and deceptive coverage against President Donald Trump.
Flashback: Biden Previously Defended Another Instance Where
His Son Benefited from His Political Career

It turns out this isn't the first time Hunter has benefited from his father's connections. Back in 2008, Tom Brokaw grilled Joe Biden about Hunter being hired by MBNA, a credit card company based in Delaware, right out of law school. Biden had received campaign contributions from the company before and was even working on a bill MBNA backed.
Elizabeth Warren:
Transgender Border Crossers ‘Must’ Be Released into U.S.

Warren, with Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) where she demands that transgender border crossers and illegal aliens be released into the U.S. rather than being held in Mexico under President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

‘I, I, I Don’t Know’: Anderson Cooper
Stumps Kamala Harris with a Single, Simple Question

CNN’s Anderson Cooper stumped Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris on Friday night when he asked her what specific laws President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has broken. Harris spoke to Cooper on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” and the host asked Harris for her reaction to reports that Giuliani tried to override the Ukrainian embassy and State Department in an effort to get a visa for Viktor Shokin, a former Ukrainian prosecutor.

Justin Trudeau Faces Protestors Wearing Blackface

Photos of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing blackface surfaced back in September. The original picture showed Trudeau with a painted brown face at an “Arabian Nights” party held by the West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver in 2001. He was teaching at the private school. Trudeau thought the scandal was behind him but it turns out Canadian voters haven't forgotten.
Transgender Lobby Forces Sanitary Towel-Maker Always to
Ditch Venus Logo - Feminists Cry Foul

The maker of Always sanitary pads has given in to claims of discrimination by transgender men and removed the ‘Venus’ symbol of the female sex from the wrapping. Outraged women are now boycotting the leading brand after the decision by makers Procter & Gamble (P&G) to kowtow to trans activists who were born female and still use sanitary products.
Obama Staffer Slams Mulvaney for Admitting ‘Quid Pro Quo’ –
Then Concedes it Happens All the Time

Former White House communications director Jen Psaki criticized White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney for admitting to a “quid pro quo” – and then almost immediately conceded that such arrangements were common practice. Psaki joined Sunday’s panel discussion on CNN’s “State of the Union” discussing Mulvaney’s Friday press conference.

Our Fireman is a Salty Sailor
Tammy Keener
Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done. Appreciating what the man is doing doesn't mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor. It doesn't even mean God admires the salty sailor. Maybe He just knows he's necessary for such a time as this.
Madness of Leftist Zealots
Michael Goodwin
The blame game is part of any standoff and this one is no exception. Half the country blames Trump for our national discord, and they are partially right, though not for the reasons they believe... Yet singling out Trump for the turmoil engulfing the country is possible only if you disregard the No. 1 contributor: the refusal of Democrats and most of the media to accept the results of the 2016 election.
Ukraine President: We're Ready to Investigate
Ukraine's Alleged Meddling in 2016 U.S. Election

During a "press marathon" on Thursday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the topic of his famous July 25 phone call with President Trump, including one of the "favors" Trump mentioned: to look into "the whole situation" of Ukraine's role in the 2016 U.S. election.

Mueller Was Pursuing FBI Director Job When He
Met with Trump in 2017 – Rod Rosenstein Hid the Info

Multiple administration officials tell Fox News that when Robert Mueller met with President Trump in May of 2017, Mueller was indeed pursuing the open post as the director of the FBI – something the former Russia probe special counsel denied under oath during congressional testimony this summer. These officials also told Fox News government documents showed Mueller was pursuing the job as a candidate himself.
Ex-CIA Head Brennan on Trump Attacks:
“I may have relied on ‘bad information’”

Former head of the CIA John Brennan admitted on Monday that he may have relied on "bad information" for his relentless attacks on President Trump. Brennan – who once warned that "our Nation's future is at stake" – told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he may have been misled on the extent of Trump's connections to Russia.
Brennan seems to be feeling the heat of a criminal indictment!
Did Former DNI James Clapper
Implicate Barack Obama in Trump Spying Scandal?

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who served under Barack Obama, was interviewed on CNN Monday morning. During this interview, Clapper defended the actions of the intelligence community during the 2016 election, and let a very crucial detail slip... "It's kind of disconcerting now to be investigated for, you know, having done our duty and done what we were told to do by the president," Clapper added.
Intel Community IG Stonewalling Congress on
Backdated Whistleblower Rule Changes

Sean Davis
As The Federalist reported and the ICIG confirmed, the spy watchdog secretly changed its whistleblower forms and internal rules in September to eliminate a requirement that whistleblowers provide first-hand evidence to support any allegations of wrongdoing. In a press release last week, the ICIG confessed that it changed its rules in response to an anti-Trump complaint filed on August 12.
Did Jim Comey Spy on Loretta Lynch?
Post Editorial Board
Was then-FBI chief Jim Comey spying on his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch? He apparently had a "highly placed informant" in her office reporting on her doings as of May 2016, which is pretty darn close to "spying" in most books. We know: Comey famously considers it an "investigation," not "spying," when it's official FBI business – but it's hard to see how secretly monitoring the AG's office could be official work for the Bureau.
Indictment of DIA Analyst Shows How
'Journalists' Sleep with Sources for Juicy Leaks

Henry Kyle Frese, a 30-year-old employee at the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), has been arrested after being charged with leaking classified data to the media. Authorities claim that one journalist was apparently sleeping with Frese for the leaks, showing the seedy, sex-driven nature of the fake news industry. This is not the first time that sex has been used as a weapon by a fake news presstitute in order to gain access to classified intel.
Hunter Biden Leaves China Board as Trump Attacks Hit Home
Hunter Biden is walking away from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company as part of a public pledge to disavow all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, gains the presidency in 2020. The 49-year-old doesn’t state whether he will be divesting from BHR (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company. The company was set up in 2013 to invest Chinese capital outside of China.

This One is About Her Previous Career as a Teacher.

Warren caught in another lieSenator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has repeatedly said she was a special needs school teacher but she was fired because she was "visibly pregnant." It's become part of her typical stomping speech, a part of her so-called "resume." It turns out Warrens' narrative was nothing but a lie.
Elizabeth Warren's Pregnancy Discrimination Fib Uncovered by Bernie-supporting Socialist, Not "right wing" as Warren Claims
William A. Jacobson
An important narrative in Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign is that she lost a teaching job early in her career because she was pregnant. Yet that narrative has been largely-debunked by Warren's own words in a 2007 interview, and through records obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and others. This story of Warren changing her tune started with a Bernie-backing Socialist who writes for a Socialist magazine.
Germany Warns of Repeat of 2015 Migrant Influx Into EU

Germany warned on Tuesday of a repeat of the chaotic influx of migrants that caught the European Union unprepared in 2015, with Greece and Cyprus sounding alarms over a fresh surge of arrivals from neighboring Turkey. EU ministers were meeting to discuss migration as Greece has again become the main gateway to Europe for people fleeing wars and poverty in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, with U.N. data showing nearly 45,600 arrivals by sea so far this year.

For the last three decades, San Francisco has conducted a real-life experiment in what happens when a society stops enforcing bourgeois norms of behavior.

Unprecedented Power Outages Begin In California As
Winds Bring Critical Fire Danger

The first power cutoffs, expected to affect 513,000 customers, began shortly after midnight [Tuesday 10/8]. The blackouts will impact 34 counties in Central and Northern California. It would be the biggest power shutdown so far as utilities across the state attempt to reduce wildfire risk due to heavy wind.
Oxygen-Dependent Man Dies
12 Minutes After PG&E Cuts Power to His Home

A Northern California man dependent on oxygen supply died Wednesday just after power cuts from Pacific Gas and Electric Co. affected his home, fire officials said Friday. Robert Mardis, 67, died roughly 12 minutes after PG&E cut power to his home and the surrounding area. An autopsy report concluded the man died of severe coronary artery atherosclerosis, according to the Sacramento Bee.
Californians Learning That Solar Panels Don't Work in Blackouts
Californians have embraced rooftop solar panels more than anyone in the U.S., but many are learning the hard way the systems won't keep the lights on during blackouts. That's because most panels are designed to supply power to the grid – not directly to houses. During the heat of the day, solar systems can crank out more juice than a home can handle. Conversely, they don't produce power at all at night.

Newly Released Judicial Watch Docs Paint Rosenstein as

Judicial Watch on Wednesday released 145 pages of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's communications which include a one-line email from Rosenstein to Robert Mueller stating "The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions." That email came just five days before Rosenstein appointed Mueller to take over the FBI's Russia investigation as special counsel, roiling Trump's presidency.

Lawmakers Erupt After Report Reveals Schiff Knew of
Whistleblower Complaint Before Filing: 'This Explains a Lot'

Republican congressional leaders accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Democrats of rigging the impeachment scheme after news broke that Schiff was in contact with the whistleblower before the complaint against President Donald Trump was filed. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) shared the report and wrote in a statement: "Chairman Adam Schiff just got caught orchestrating with the whistleblower before the complaint was ever filed. Democrats have rigged this process from the start."

An Actual Crime:
Adam Schiff Has Been Lying About the Whistleblower the Whole Time

JD Rucker
Representative Adam Schiff should be in serious trouble. He won't be because he's a Democrat and therefore a victim in the eyes of the press, but his actions surrounding the Ukraine-call whistleblower are the real "high crime and misdemeanor" that is taking place with the Ukraine hoax.
Pelosi Tries to Rescue Schiff After He Made Up Trump Call:
‘He Did Not Make It Up’

Schiff undeniably fabricated quotes as he led off a hearing with acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire last week. ABC News’ anchor George Stephanopoulus even confronted Schiff over the incident, playing the clip of the disgraceful display and stating, “That was you making up dialogue, putting it in the president’s mouth.”

Nancy Pelosi on Schiff's Made Up Trump Phone Call:
'He Did Not Make It Up'

"I want the American people to know what that phone call was about. I want them to hear, it. So yeah it's fair," she said. "It's sad, but it's using the president's own words." Either she doesn't know what a parody is or she's simply willing to lie to get Schiff off the hook. Either option is eminently possible. Stephanopoulus, to his credit, called her out saying, "Those weren't the president's words, it was an interpretation of the president's words. They're saying he made this up."
Adam Schiff-Ukraine Connection Comes Under Scrutiny
Adam Schiff, who has played a leading role in investigating the Trump-Ukraine scandal, is facing questions about his own connection to a Soviet-born businessman who has raised money for his campaign and whose company has received lucrative defense contracts from Ukraine's government.

Amazing Coincidence That Nancy Pelosi’s Son Also

Impeachment Comments Democrats Would Rather You Forget
Issues & Insights Editorial
More than 20 years ago, when President Bill Clinton was being impeached for lying to a grand jury – then as now a documented fact that no one can credibly dispute – some Democrats who today want to impeach and have the Senate remove President Donald Trump from office ASAP, were whistling a very different tune.
How the Obama White House Engaged Ukraine to
Give Russia Collusion Narrative An Early Boost

John Solomon
As Donald Trump began his meteoric rise to the presidency, the Obama White House summoned Ukrainian authorities to Washington to coordinate ongoing anti-corruption efforts inside Russia’s most critical neighbor. The agenda suggested the purpose was training and coordination. But Ukrainian participants said it didn’t take long – during the meetings and afterward – to realize the Americans’ objectives included two politically hot investigations: one that touched Vice President Joe Biden’s family and one that involved a lobbying firm linked closely to then-candidate Trump.
Joe Biden Snaps at Another Reporter Over Question
About His Family's 'Conflicts of Interest' in the Ukraine

Joe Biden has lashed out at a reporter in response to a question about his family's potential conflicts of interest in the Ukraine, insisting that press should focus on allegations against President Donald Trump. At a Service Employees International Union forum in Los Angeles on Friday, Biden was asked about his work overseeing foreign policy for Ukraine as vice president while his son Hunter served on the board of a major Ukrainian company.

France's anti-terrorism prosecutor said on Saturday an investigation had detected signs of "latent radicalization" in an attacker who knifed four co-workers to death at police headquarters in Paris this week. The assailant, an IT worker at the headquarters, went on a rampage on Thursday, killing three police officers and an administrative worker, and wounding at least one other, before being shot dead by police.
FBI: More People Killed with Hammers, Clubs than Rifles
According to FBI figures, 443 people were killed with hammers, clubs, or other “blunt objects” while 297 people were killed with rifles of every kind.

In fact, more than twice as many people were beaten to death with fists and feet than were shot to death with rifles.
Oregon Taco Bell Customer Who Slashed Man's Throat
Sentenced to 7 Years in Prison

A knife-wielding Maryland woman who slashed a man’s throat at a Taco Bell in Oregon this past July – after he told her to “zip it” for berating the staff – was sentenced Thursday to 7 years in prison, according to a report. Caley Mason, 22, pleaded guilty in Clackamas County in September to second-degree assault in the knife attack that gave 48-year-old Jason Luczkow an 8-inch gash across his face and throat and required 100 stitches.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has promoted at least four racially charged hoaxes or debunked stories on Twitter in 2019 and failed to issue statements retracting or correcting her comments. The most recent example: the case of Amari Allen, a black 12-year-old girl in Virginia who claimed three white boys in her class pinned her down and cut off her dreadlocks. Allen has since recanted the story, but Tlaib has not issued a correction or deleted her tweet praising Allen as "courageous & strong" and having a "power that threatens their core."

If the Case for Trump’s Impeachment is So Strong,
Why Are Liberals Lying About It?

Derek Hunter
Lying takes a lot of effort, telling the truth is easy. When you start lying you have to remember which lie you told which person, and as the truth begins to creep out, as it always does, you find yourself scrambling to twist it to fit back into your lie. Democrats, both in Congress and the media, are finding this out the hard way this week with their latest “Trump is corrupt and must be impeached” lie.
Climate Worship Is Nothing More Than Rebranded Paganism
 Sumantra Maitra
If nothing else, the last few days should be enough to prove that Western civilization, a product of more than 1,500 years of Judeo-Christian values, is facing its most significant and sustained challenge in centuries from tribalistic paganism, a force that seeks not only to turn back time but essentially to destroy the entire current edifice.
Schiff Says Agreement Reached with Whistleblower to
Testify Before House Committee

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said Sunday that House lawmakers have reached an agreement with the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trump’s July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to testify before a congressional committee. Speaking on ABC's "This Week," Schiff said that the agreement with the whistleblower and his or her lawyers has been settled and that there are precautions being taken to protect the identity of the person amid the criticism from Trump and his allies.
Trump Ukraine Controversy: Democrats Have Been
Slicing and Dicing the Memo to Fit Their Narrative

James S. Robbins
Democrats are pinning their latest impeachment hopes on the theory that President Donald Trump tried to enlist Ukraine to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden to sway the 2020 election. But as the White House phone record release Wednesday shows, the issue is really about the dirty tricks that were being played in 2016.
Intel Community Secretly Gutted Requirement of
First-Hand Whistleblower Knowledge

Between May 2018 and August 2019, the intelligence community secretly eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings. This raises questions about the intelligence community’s behavior regarding the August submission of a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump.
Hmm,
new rules just for 45!
Flashback: Obama Admin Asked Ukraine to
Investigate Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort

Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy noted that then-President Barack Obama’s administration asked Ukraine to investigate Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, in 2016. McCarthy notes the double standard – that Democrats want to impeach Trump for doing what Obama did – and which they have been telling the world for years was necessary to do to protect American national security.
The Trump-Ukraine Whistleblower Complaint
Looks Just Like 'Steele Dossier 2.0'

Sean Davis
An old adage holds that while history doesn't repeat itself, it rhymes. Not so in the case of the latest manufactured anti-Trump "scandal." The anonymous whistleblower's allegations of corruption involving President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, appear to be a note-for-note reproduction of the discredited "dossier" of 2016.
Fooled us once, shame on you. Fooling us twice, not this time!
Common Funding Themes Link 'Whistleblower' Complaint and CrowdStrike Firm Certifying DNC Russia 'Hack'
One of several themes is financing tied to Google, whose Google Capital led a $100 million funding drive that financed Crowdstrike. Google Capital, which now goes by the name of CapitalG, is an arm of Alphabet Inc. CrowdStrike was mentioned by Trump in his call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Perkins Coie, the law firm that represented the DNC and Hillary Clinton's campaign, reportedly helped draft CrowdStrike to aid with the DNC's allegedly hacked server.
The Real Foreign Collusion Occurred Between
Pro-Clinton Ukrainians and the DNC

At a 2017 briefing, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "If you're looking for an example of a campaign coordinating with a foreign country or a foreign source, look no further than the DNC, who actually coordinated opposition research with the Ukrainian Embassy."
Media Corruption on Perfect Display in
One Washington Post Paragraph

Mollie Hemingway
ABC News' White House correspondent Karen Travers approvingly tweeted out a paragraph of a front-page Washington Post rant written by Philip Rucker, Robert Costa, and Rachel Bade. The paragraph comes from their cri de coeur headlined "Trump's Ukraine Call Reveals A President Convinced Of His Own Invincibility." While the article matches the headline in its extreme bias and shrill outpouring of opinion it is presented as if it's news, a common problem with our current media culture.
McCabe Memo Indicates Rosenstein Was Serious
About Wearing White House Wire

A newly released two-page memo written by then-Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe outlined how former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proposed wearing a wire in the White House "to collect additional evidence on the president's true intentions," and thought the scheme was plausible because "he was not searched when he entered the White House."
Wherever Joe Biden Went, Son Hunter Cashed In
David Harsanyi
In a now notorious July 25 conversation, President Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to "look into" Ukraine's role in efforts to interfere in the 2016 election as well as the dealings of Joe Biden and his son Hunter with the notoriously corrupt country. In 2016, acting as the Obama administration's point man in Ukraine, the vice president – unlike Trump – openly threatened to withhold $1 billion in American loan guarantees if the embattled nation didn't fire the country's top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin.
Former Ukrainian PM:
We Have to Investigate These Hunter Biden Allegations

Matt Vespa
So, while House Democrats are planning President Trump's impeachment over some shoddy allegations over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, let's once again reiterate how this circus came to town. Well, actually this production was three years in the making, with the Left plotting to impeach Trump since day one of his presidency.
500 Scientists Address the UN Convention on Climate Change
There Is No Climate Emergency

The general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is at present founded are unfit for their purpose. Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models. Current climate policies pointlessly, grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, continuous electrical power.
Sorry, Greta, Even Your Fellow Swedes
Aren't Buying the Climate Change Claptrap Anymore

Monica Showalter
Greta Thunberg, the Swedish child activist who doesn't know much but is very certain of what she's saying, is having her heyday in the U.S., fiercely putting on her "I won't eat those peas" face for the cameras, telling the U.S. Congress they're not trying hard enough, leading a giant global protest today, and getting hailed as the child savior of the Earth. Just one glitch here. Her home nation of Sweden – yes, you read right: Sweden – isn't buying the global warming claptrap anymore.
Countdown to Doom: Deconstructing Climate Hysteria – Part 1
Tim Donner
How dare you? We will long remember those words from a Swedish teenager who has now been elevated to a position of moral authority atop the Armageddon faction of the left’s climate justice movement. In fact, she has become the public face of the climate branch of the broader social justice movement.
A Message for Children About Climate Change
Scott Adams
Dear Children, I'm sorry adults have frightened you about climate change and how it might affect your future. You might be less afraid if you knew some facts that adults intentionally do not explain to you. I'll tell you here.
Climate Hysteria is Harming Our Kids
Jon Gabriel
The latest round of ecological doomsaying hit the United Nations Monday in the form of Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish climate activist. The media made this child a celebrity after her speech to the World Economic Forum in Davos... What Thunberg's parents are doing to her borders on child abuse. Hyping increasingly apocalyptic claims is spreading that abuse to every other young person.
The Left's War on Natural Gas
Andrew Moran
America's natural gas revolution is firing on all cylinders, creating jobs, lowering energy bills, making the U.S. energy independent, and decreasing CO2 emissions. This is a win-win-win for everybody, but don't tell that to the disciples of former Vice President Al Gore. According to the Book of Greta Thunberg, the only acceptable forms of energy are wind, solar, and running in circles – anything else is heresy to global warming orthodoxy.
Rep. Ann Wagner Says Pelosi is Holding Rape Kit Grants Hostage
While House Democrats Push Impeachment

Republican Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner said Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was holding important bipartisan legislation hostage while she and other House Democrats forged ahead on impeachment. "There is something called the Debbie Smith Act, and Nancy Pelosi held this up yesterday while she demanded the president release the whistleblower report, which he's already doing," Wagner explained.

Children As Young As Six Are to Be Given Compulsory
Self-Touching Lessons That Critics Say Are Sexualizing Youngsters

Children as young as six are being taught about touching or 'stimulating' their own genitals as part of classes that will become compulsory in hundreds of primary schools. Some parents believe the lessons – part of a controversial new sex and relationships teaching program called All About Me – are 'sexualizing' their young children.
New York City’s Brazen Assault on the First Amendment
The ironically-named Commission on Human Rights, which is charged with enforcing NYC’s Human Rights Law, recently announced the implementation of a new ordinance that would punish those who engage in certain types of speech against illegal immigrants. According to the organization’s press release, the “use of the term ‘illegal alien,’ among others, when used with intent to demean, humiliate, or harass a person, is illegal under the law.”

Altering Ballots in 2018 Midterms

Sherikia Hawkins was charged Monday with six felony counts for allegedly altering absentee ballots during the November 2018 election in her capacity as city clerk for the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Mich. Hawkins, a 38-year-old registered Democrat, stands accused of altering 193 absentee ballots. She was arraigned Monday in Southfield on charges including falsifying returns or records, forgery of a public record, misconduct in office, and multiple counts of using a computer to commit a crime.

Hate Crimes Panel with CAIR Leader Cancelled
After Counter-Islamist Activism

CAIR refers to itself as a Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, but in reality it functions as the vanguard of Islamism in the United States, with a long history of ties to terrorism and extremist movements that ultimately seek to replace constitutional government with theocracy. If anyone should be able to see through this deception, it is the FBI.

Iran Ready to "Wipe the Zionist Regime off the Map"
Majid Rafizadeh
Among other lawlessness, Iran, since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, has continued non-stop to threaten the existence of Israel in contravention of Chapter 1 the United Nations Charter – without any reproof or rebuke from the international community. Amazingly, Israel has been bullied and criticized by the same international community for merely taking precautionary measures to defend its citizens and territorial integrity, as any country would.
Why Knowing Roman History Is Key to Preserving America's Future
Steele Brand
The United States didn't simply poof into existence, fully formed, from the brains of the Founders. History guided them as they crafted the American system of governance. This included the European traditions they were partially rejecting, but also elements from an older generation of republics that they wished to copy, especially the Roman Republic. And while our problems today feel distinctly modern, Rome still has lessons that can guide our republic.
Donald Trump:
'Real and Only Story' is Joe Biden's Ukraine Scandal

Trump shared a campaign video on Twitter, highlighting the story in which Biden threatened to pull aid from Ukraine if it did not fire a prosecutor who was currently investigating an energy company where his son, Hunter Biden, was serving on the board. The video points out that despite Biden's insistence that "not one single credible outlet" gave credence to the story, several media outlets reported on the case, including the New York Times and ABC News.
Peter Schweizer Says Hunter Biden Worked in Ukraine
Despite Lacking Credentials: 'What is he being paid for?'

"The underlying story here involves Hunter Biden going around the world really collecting large payments from foreign governments and foreign oligarchs in the case of Ukraine," Schweizer, the author of "Secret Empires," said on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle."
Missing Piece to the Ukraine Puzzle:
State Department's Overture to Rudy Giuliani

John Solomon
There is a missing part of the story that the American public needs in order to assess what really happened: Giuliani's contact with Zelensky adviser and attorney Andrei Yermak this summer was encouraged and facilitated by the U.S. State Department. Giuliani didn't initiate it. A senior U.S. diplomat contacted him in July and asked for permission to connect Yermak with him.
Trump Taps Clinton, Obama Precedent on
Whistleblower Executive Privilege

A top House Democrat accused the administration Thursday of stonewalling a probe into a national security whistleblower's complaint against President Trump by raising executive privilege, but Presidents Clinton and Obama also insisted on the right to privilege in such cases. Rep. Adam B. Schiff said the Justice Department is shielding the White House by barring disclosure of details about the whistleblower's complaint.
Without Accountability, There Can Never Be Trust in Our Government
Brian Cates
For a year and a half, IG Michael Horowitz and many of the 450 people working in the Office of the Inspector General have been digging deeply into just how the fake Trump-Russia collusion information was used by top federal officials to start law enforcement investigations and intelligence operations against the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Now proof of the harm caused by infrasound is no longer in doubt and
comes from an unlikely source – the Chinese Military!

Chinese Scientists Develop Handheld Sonic Weapon for Crowd Control
The rifle-shaped instrument, which was jointly developed with military and law enforcement, is designed to disperse crowds using focused waves of low frequency sound, the academy's Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry website said on Wednesday. The device's "biological effect" would cause extreme discomfort, with vibrations in the eardrums, eyeballs, stomach, liver, and brain, scientists said.

Do Wind Turbines Cause Health Problems?
Does Their Infrasound Cause Health Problems?

The rapidly spinning blades of huge wind turbines have an effect on their surroundings, and it goes beyond aesthetics. The rapidly spinning blades can produce a weak but distinctive noise, as well as disruptions in air pressure. The noise is generated by the movement of the blades through the air, as well as from the from the turbine machinery.

Are Wind Farms a Health Risk?
US Scientist Identifies 'wind turbine syndrome'

Living too close to wind turbines can cause heart disease, tinnitus, vertigo, panic attacks, migraines and sleep deprivation, according to groundbreaking research to be published later this year by an American doctor. Dr Nina Pierpont, a leading New York pediatrician, has been studying the symptoms displayed by people living near wind turbines in the US, the UK, Italy, Ireland and Canada for more than five years.
Wind power is only pseudo-renewable. The wind may be free. But nothing of what's required to harness breezes to power civilization is free, renewable, climate-friendly, eco-friendly or sustainable.

Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices – right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital – which tops the list. Its so-called ‘Energiewende’ has turned into high farce: power prices are rising; hundreds of thousands of Germans can no longer afford power; the grid is on the brink of collapse; and its primary object (slashing carbon dioxide gas emissions) is an abject failure.
New Regulations Will Ban Large Scale Wind Farms in
Sedgwick County, Kansas  

Large scale commercial wind farms will be banned in Sedgwick County under new standards that have been adopted by the county commission. The standards were developed this year in response to a controversial wind farm proposal in Reno County, and a moratorium was placed on consideration of new wind and solar projects in Sedgwick County until the standards and requirements could be worked out.

Climate Models Predict Disaster but Not Real World Evidence

Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris
The so-called emergency is based on nothing but the over-active imaginations of activists who put too much faith in computer model forecasts, while ignoring historic records and observational data that tell us nothing extraordinary or unprecedented is happening – and demonstrate that the models are wrong.

Doomsdays That Didn't Happen:
Think Tank Compiles Decades' Worth of Dire Climate Predictions

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently suggested Miami would disappear in "a few years" due to climate change. The United Nations is convening a "Climate Action Summit" next week. And climate activist Greta Thunberg is on Capitol Hill this week telling lawmakers they must act soon. But while data from NASA and other top research agencies confirms global temperatures are indeed rising, a newly compiled retrospective indicates the doomsday rhetoric is perhaps more overheated.

We all know that the New York Times is part of the Democratic Party Media Complex, but seldom has their coordination been this blatant.

"The real bombshell": CBS News Hits NYT Over Kavanaugh Story to
Focus On Witness Tampering

Who would have expected the harshest media rebuke of the New York Times to come from the CBS Evening News? It starts off like a rehash of the NYT's hit job on Brett Kavanaugh, but as correspondent Jan Crawford noted on Twitter, it takes a sharply critical turn at the end. Not only does Crawford note that every one of Christine Blasey Ford's cited witnesses say the alleged high-school party with Kavanaugh never happened, Crawford uses the cutting-room floor clippings from the NYT's story to focus on Leland Keyser's claim of witness tampering.

Abortionist Ulrich Klopfer Kept Thousands of Dead Babies
But Inspires Little Curiosity

David Mastio
There's something sick in America's abortion industry. What else would account for a doctor who collected thousands of dead babies in some kind of twisted hobby that he hid from his allegedly unsuspecting wife? How does a story this sensational – that happens to have partly taken place in presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg's hometown, where he's the mayor – not get more than cursory attention from the national news media?

In July, District Court Judge Roseann Ketchmark in the Eastern District of Missouri rejected part of the SPLC's motion to dismiss a defamation lawsuit, allowing the case to enter the discovery process. Yet this huge news has received almost no media attention, presumably because there is no big law firm behind this lawsuit.
