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

Why War with Iran and Why Now?
Rick Moran
So why go to war now? The pressure on Iran is intense. Their economy is failing and the people are tired of the regime's promises that things will get better. Unemployment, inflation, falling revenue, and food shortages have brought Iran to the brink. The country is about ready to explode. There may never be a better opportunity to rid the world of a major threat.

Covering Up Our Culture to 'Avoid Giving Offense'
Giulio Meotti
By refusing to confront the speech police, or to support freedom of expression ... we have started down the road of submission to sharia law and to tyranny. We all have been covering up our supposedly "blasphemous" culture with burqas to avoid offending people who do not seem to mind offending us.

Ben Rhodes, CNN and Others Purposely Fuel Pro-Iranian "False Flag" Conspiracy Theories After Tanker Attacks
Red State by Bonchie
One of the things we've seen in response to what happened is liberals pushing "false flag" conspiracy theories, i.e. the suggestion that the U.S. and/or Saudi Arabia set this attack up to falsely blame the innocent Mullahs in Iran. You know, because famously isolationist Donald Trump wants to go to war with Iran or something. Makes sense, right
Trump's Citizenship Question is Racist? What About Clinton's?
Democrats were for the question before they were against it.

Deroy Murdock
The debate over the Trump Administration's proposed citizenship question  on the 2020 Census is heating up again. The Right seems tongue-tied on this issue amid the Left's predictable and vile claims that this question is fueled by – what else? – racism. The fastest way to humiliate the Left into silence on this matter is to display the images of the 2000 Census, in which Bill Clinton asked the very same question. "Is this person a citizen of the United States?"

President Trump Calls Out Predatory Corporate Lobbyists,
the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Do not overlook the importance of President Donald Trump publicly calling out the largest DC lobbyist group, and epicenter of Big Club corruption earlier today. During a widely discussed CNBC interview today President Trump landed two torpedoes directly below the waterline on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Just How Deep and Entrenched is the Deep State?
Dennis Jamison
A genuine irony exists today despite widespread mainstream media silence, in that a broader spectrum of Americans are beginning to realize that a Deep State of political elitists and a real Criminal Cabal exists at the core of the United States government. This entity, no matter how it is identified is only slowly coming out of the shadows and into the light.
Lindsey Graham: ‘President Trump is Right.
Talking to People is Not a Crime’

Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham defended President Donald Trump’s contention that merely talking with people, even foreign governments, is perfectly legal. Graham’s comments came after Jeanine Pirro’s opening statement Saturday night during which the Fox News host defended the president for telling ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he would listen if a foreign source offered opposition research. She also played a statement she made on her show back in 2017:
Unlike House, U.S. Senate Unanimously Condemns Anti-Semitism
Melissa Langsam Braunstein
When you write about anti-Semitism, there's typically not much good news to report; the world's oldest hatred has been making a comeback not only overseas, but also here in the US of A. So, it's both good and important to pause and celebrate the U.S. Senate unanimously passing a resolution that unequivocally condemns anti-Semitism. Where the House of Representatives fumbled, the Senate succeeded. And thank G-d for that.

"Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia," Trump tweeted. "This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country." Trump claimed in a separate tweet that the story was "NOT TRUE!"

Five years after a Judicial Watch investigation uncovered evidence of Islamic terrorists infiltrating the United States through Mexico, a captured ISIS fighter is providing details of a plot in which jihadists enter the country through the southern border to carry out an attack. The terrorists begin their journey in Central America and exploit vulnerabilities in the Mexican border to reach the U.S., according to Abu Henricki, an ISIS soldier captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces in Rojava, Syria.
Oberlin College to Pay Bakery the
Now-Massive Sum of $44M Over Racism Dispute

A jury has awarded $33.2 million in punitive damages to Gibson's Bakery, whose owners claimed Ohio's Oberlin College and an administrator hurt their business and libeled them during a dispute over a shoplifting episode that triggered protests and allegations of racism. The Chronicle-Telegram reported the same jury awarded Gibson's business and family members more than $11 million in actual or compensatory damages, bringing the total award to more than $44 million.

Accountability for Oberlin
John Hayward
Oberlin College in Ohio may be one of the most egregious politically correct campuses in the nation.

Denver Council Member Wins with Promise to
Impose Communism 'By Any Means Necessary'

Candi CdeBaca won a runoff race last week against former Denver city council president Albus Brooks, and she did it by promising to implement communist policies "by any means necessary." CdeBaca was among three candidates that unseated incumbents in the Tuesday runoff, preliminary results show, and she's already drawing comparisons to Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old who unseated 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in New York's 14th congressional district in 2018.
Ilhan Omar Refuses to Comment on
Terrorist Recruitment in Her District

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) declined to address a report that found the highest level of terrorist group recruitment has taken place in her congressional district. According to a Fox News report from February, "More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country."
What is Ilhan Omar Hiding About Her Marriages?
Tiana Lowe
People don't like to discuss their personal lives in public, much less when multiple divorces and children are involved. Even in public life, there ought to remain a reasonable amount of privacy when it comes to a purely intimate matter. But red flags about the two or three marriages of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., have now produced evidence of lawbreaking. It's time to start asking questions.
Reality Bites Joe Biden’s “Clean Energy Revolution”
Paul Driessen
Presidential candidate Joe Biden recently announced his “Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice.” While it might be viewed as a Green New Deal Lite, the plan would inflict enormous economic, environmental and societal pain on most of the nation, for no climate benefits. First, as I’ve noted here and elsewhere, Mr. Biden’s “climate emergency” exists in computer models and alarmist reports, but not in the Real World. Warming, cooling, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, melting ice, rising seas are no more frequent or severe than Earth has experienced many times before.
Bernie Sanders' 'Economic Bill of Rights' Taken

On Wednesday, 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders delivered a major speech about Democratic Socialism. Sanders understands that many Americans view the term "socialist" as a "slur" and sought the opportunity to clear up some of the myths and allow us to see how great socialism really can be. Finally, Sanders introduces the centerpiece of his platform, which he calls "a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights."
PM Justin Trudeau's Obama-approved
"Drink Box Water Bottles Sort of Thing"

Judi McLeod
As he stumbles and fumbles his way to an October federal election, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has created another laughable classic.

"We have recently switched to drinking water bottles out of … water out of, when we have water bottles, out of a plastic, sorry, away from plastic towards paper, like drink box water bottles, sort of thing …"
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Signed a Campus Free Speech Bill
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a free speech bill Sunday that eliminates free speech zones, among other new policies, aimed at creating more freedom of expression on campuses. In a Twitter video, the governor said that "some colleges are banning free speech on college campuses, well no more, because I'm about to sign a law that protects free speech on college campuses in Texas." Abbot commented on the bill, saying that he "shouldn't have to do it, First Amendment guarantees it, now its law in Texas."
Ben Carson Takes Aim at Red Tape Blamed for Soaring Housing Costs
State and local governments are driving up the cost of housing through a web of regulations, industry groups and federal officials say – a situation that's prompted Housing Secretary Ben Carson to call for new incentives to eliminate the red tape. "Too many families can't afford a home mortgage, and too many Americans face high rent prices … We must do more to increase supply and bring down housing costs by reducing state and local regulations and zoning restrictions."
Vietnam Says That China is Mislabeling Products as
Vietnamese to Avoid U.S. Tariffs

Vietnamese officials say China is intentionally mislabeling its products as "made in Vietnam" to avoid American tariffs, and have ordered offices to more aggressively examine products' certificates of origin. Chinese firms first export products to Vietnam, then change the labeling on packages before exporting the goods to the United States, Japan or Europe, they said.
New Zealanders Just Say No to Gun Ban
Leesa K. Donner
New Zealand politicians who rushed to enact nationwide gun confiscation following the Christchurch mosque massacres are befuddled by the lack of enthusiasm from citizens who have yet to comply with the new law. The so-called "gun reform" was expected to rid the vast New Zealand countryside of most semi-automatic firearms, magazines over a specified limit, and shotguns. Only 530 guns have thus far been turned in to the authorities.
Argentina and Uruguay Left Without Power in Massive Outage
Edusur, a major provider to the two nations, confirmed the outage in a tweet on Sunday morning and engineers had been working to restore power throughout the day. Argentine website Infobae said Edusar confirmed "the blackout is at a country level and also affects Uruguay" and said nothing like this had ever happened.
Embassies Display Pride Flags, Media Get it Wrong
Kim Hirsch
In case you missed it, it's Gay Pride Month. Because it's Pride Month, four U.S. embassies around the world requested permission to fly the rainbow pride flag on flagpoles. The Trump administration put the kibosh on that, although embassies are permitted to display the flag on embassy grounds, such as the inside of the building or on exterior walls. But once again the media distort what really happened.

Climate Change: What Can't It Do?
John Hinderaker
Unexpected weather events, like rainfall and a lack of rainfall. First the "undoubted" effect of global warming on the Great Lakes was drought, now it is too much snow and rain. Whatever. The nice thing about "climate change" as a dogma is that the weather is guaranteed to change, so whatever happens is consistent with the theory that continues to bring in the big bucks.
The Fly in the Communist's Pie
Charles Wills
People are tired of the "get Trump conspiracy" and wondering if it will ever end. The Democrats' dirty war on the President and America should have ended with the phony Mueller investigation, but it didn't. That's because the conspiracy against President Trump is part of a larger conspiracy that has been around for several centuries.
Trump Deal with Mexico Likely Ends Catch-and-Release,
Defunds Cartels

President Donald Trump has announced an immigration reform deal with the Mexican government which likely will allow border officials to end the catch-and-release of Central American migrants. Ending catch-and-release is a huge win for Americans and Trump because it means border officials now have a legal alternative to the catch-and-release rules which allow migrants to legally enter the United States if they bring children and claim asylum.
Trump Raises Specter of Imposing 'very profitable'
New Tariffs on Mexico Despite Deal Breakthrough

Even as he again hailed his administration's last-minute, much-heralded deal on Friday with Mexico as a "successful agreement" to address illegal immigration at the southern border, President Trump on Sunday bluntly suggested he might again seek to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico if its cooperation falls short in the future. The president and other key administration officials also sharply disputed a New York Times report claiming the Friday deal "largely" had been negotiated months ago, and hinted that not all major details of the new arrangement have yet been made public.
Mexican Government Admits 80% of Its Populated Territory is
Run by Cartels, Including Key Border Areas

Daniel Horowitz
As of last year, the Taliban controlled or contested 46 percent of the districts in Afghanistan's civil war. That was enough justification for us to keep our military perpetually engaged there in combat. What if you were told that 80 percent of Mexico's territory is controlled by dangerous cartels, including all of the key smuggling routes at our border, and that the cartels are orchestrating all of the illegal immigration into our territory and bringing their members back and forth across our own border?
More Than 55,000 Children Caught at Border in May
The government set another grim record in May with more than 55,000 children nabbed by Border Patrol agents along the southwest border. They were part of more than 130,000 unauthorized migrants Border Patrol agents and officers at the ports of entry encountered last month, up from about 109,000 in April and far higher than the 51,000 or so nabbed in May 2018. But even record overall numbers shield the true expanse of the crisis, officials said.

Back in March, President Donald Trump signed a presidential permit to initiate the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline with a facility in Montana, the building of which has been delayed by a federal court order and an injunction. Now, in a decision that may shock many here, a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel nullified a key barrier to the construction of the project, arguing that it no longer applies after the Trump administration replaced a permit earlier this year.

Yes, Democrats Have Removed 'So Help Me God' from
House Committee Oaths

The Democrats have continued their mission to root God out of the public square in the name of secularism by removing "so help me God" from the U.S. House of Representatives oath witnesses must take when testifying before several of the congressional committees, all of which are currently under Democratic control. Last month, The New York Times reported that Democrats have made "so help me God" a forgotten and buried tradition in the U.S. House, with Rep. Steve Cohen telling the outlet he finds the phrase inappropriate for Congress.
POTUS Lawyer John Dowd: 'The entire Mueller report is a FRAUD'
President Donald Trump's former lawyer did not mince words in describing former special counsel Robert Mueller's final report on alleged "collusion" and 'obstruction of justice' committed during the 2016 presidential campaign and beyond. "I'm so glad that [U.S. District] Judge [Emmett] Sullivan ordered the [entire] transcript" of the report, Dowd said, "because we now know the truth," adding, "We're gonna find more of these things."

Mueller's Entire Report is a Fabrication As Lie After Lie Unearthed:
Key 'Russian' Figure Actually a State Department Intel Source

Jon Dougherty
In a bombshell report Thursday, ace investigative reporter John Solomon wrote in The Hill that a key figure Mueller mentioned in his report as having ties to Russia and, by default, to the 2016 Trump campaign, was actually an intelligence source for the State Department. Let's say that again: He was a deep state source for the U.S. government, not an ally of Comrade Putin and the Kremlin.

"Within 60 days of them opening the investigation, prior to [Robert] Mueller coming on, the FBI and the [Department of Justice] knew that Christopher Steele was not credible, the dossier was not true, George Papadopoulos was innocent," Meadows said on Fox News's "Hannity." "When you look at that foundation, it's all built on a foundation of sand. That's going to start to show up soon," the Republican said.
Rand Paul: Deep State Protected John Brennan's Security Clearance
Sen. Rand Paul suspects someone revoked President Trump's order to have former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance revoked. The president announced in August that Brennan's security clearance was being stripped due to "erratic behavior" that disqualified him from having access to sensitive information. But the White House never followed through with the complicated bureaucratic process of revocation, a source told the New York Times in a report published last month.

"Unmasked," by Bozell and Tim Graham of the Media Research Center, hits stores on June 4. The conservative duo pored over "tens of thousands" of hours of news coverage from the Trump era and noticed a widespread problem rampant in the journalism industry. They put their findings in an easily digestible book for conservatives and journalism purists alike - and Bozell says readers will be shocked by the detailed account of the "utterly radicalized" liberal media.

Persecution of Christians, March 2019 Report

Raymond Ibrahim
When it comes to violence between Muslims and non-Muslims, March news was dominated by the Christchurch massacres in New Zealand, where, on March 15, an Australian man killed 51 Muslims in two mosques. A statistical report that did some number-crunching, however, found that "a Christian living in a majority Muslim country is 143 times more likely to be killed by a Muslim for being a Christian than a Muslim is likely to be killed by a non-Muslim in a Western country for being what he is."

A federal judge on Monday rejected an attempt by the Democrat-led House to bar President Donald Trump from spending $6.1 billion in unappropriated funds to build a border wall.

In Allentown Case, State Supreme Court Says Police
Can't Search Suspects Just Because They're Armed

In a decision throwing out an Allentown man's conviction, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Friday overturned a longstanding legal doctrine allowing police to stop and search a suspect solely for carrying a concealed weapon. The court ruled a police officer's knowledge that a person is carrying a gun no longer constitutes reasonable suspicion to detain and investigate whether they're licensed to do so.
Everytown for Gun Safety Lobbyist Arrested for Assault,

That's what happened when Robert Blaisdell was arrested for a host of charges relating to a domestic violence incident police say happened at his residence. Did this story make the wire services?

Socialism: With Venezuela in Collapse,
Towns Slip Into Primitive Isolation, Basic Utilities Scarce

At the once-busy beach resort of Patanemo, tourism has evaporated over the last two years as Venezuela’s economic crisis has deepened and deteriorating cellphone service left visitors too afraid of robbery to brave the isolated roads. With bank notes made useless by hyperinflation, and no easy access to the debit card terminals widely used to conduct transactions in urban areas, residents of Patanemo rely mainly on barter.
U.S. Embassies Still Hoisting Rainbow Flags,

The flap over the flags started when the State Department did not send out an official cable this year with guidelines for marking Pride Month, as it has in years past.

John Durham Needs to Investigate Why the Info Generating the
Mueller Probe is All Linked to Hillary Clinton

H. A. Goodman
One would think that incriminating evidence derived from the FBI, NSA, or CIA could have linked Donald Trump to Russian hackers or Kremlin operatives, if that evidence existed. Instead, almost all the major findings used to justify investigations into Trump's campaign are linked to Hillary Clinton or the Democratic Party. When Durham finds out exactly why Comey and others ignored blatant conflicts of interest to use faulty and suspect intelligence, Americans will learn the truth about the origins of the Mueller probe.
Trump Has Become the Democrats' Great White Whale
Victor Davis Hanson
One way of envisioning the Democratic obsessions with Donald Trump is as an addiction. We have seen the initial impeachment efforts; the attempt to get him under the emoluments clause, the Logan Act, and the 25th Amendment; the Russian collusion hoax; the Mueller investigation; the demand for his tax returns; and the psychodramas involving Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen, and Stormy Daniels.
Rare Color Footage Brings D-Day Memories Alive, 75 Years On
Seventy-five years ago, Hollywood director George Stevens stood on the deck of the HMS Belfast to film the start of the D-Day invasion. The resulting black-and-white films – following Allied troops through Normandy, the liberation of Paris, Battle of the Bulge, the horror of the Dachau concentration camp – form the basis of Americans' historical memory of World War II, and were even used as evidence in Nazi war crimes trials. But the director was also shooting 16-millimeter color film for himself of the same events, creating a kind of personal video journal of his experiences.
William Barr: Trump's critics, Not Trump,
Are 'shredding our norms and our institutions'

Attorney General William Barr blamed President Trump's political rivals for "shredding our institutions," dismissing critics who argue the commander in chief is to blame for a lack of normalcy. Soon after gaining new powers to declassify documents in his review of the origins of the Russia investigation, Barr told CBS that Trump's naysayers clamoring for the takedown of a democratically elected president are the true disrupters.
Nunes Blasts Politicized Mueller Team for 'FRAUD' After Discrepancies Found Between 'source information' on Former POTUS Lawyer
Jon Dougherty
Anyone who still believes that former special counsel Robert Mueller is a stand-up, honest guy who truly wanted justice to prevail in his BS "investigation" of POTUS Donald Trump and "Russian collusion" will have to explain why we keep finding stellar examples of his rank anti-Trump partisanship. Like, for instance, the fact that he and his team of Democrat-donating prosecutors led by that hack, Andrew Weissman, have altered source information used in the probe to make the president and his team appear guilty.
Transcript in Mueller Report was

The Mueller report quotes a transcript of a Nov. 22, 2017, voicemail message from the president’s attorney, John Dowd, to the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn. A full version of that transcript released on May 31 in the court proceeding in Flynn’s case shows that Mueller’s team selectively edited the transcript for the Mueller report.

Multiple witnesses have told Congress that, a week before Trump's inauguration in January 2017, Britain's top national security official sent a private communique to the incoming administration, addressing his country's participation in the counterintelligence probe into the now-debunked Trump-Russia election collusion... One witness confirmed to Congress that he was interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller about the memo.
Shame on Robert Mueller for Exceeding His Role
No 'plausible reason' 'except to help Democrats in Congress'

Alan Dershowitz
The statement by special counsel Robert Mueller in a Wednesday press conference that "if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that" is worse than the statement made by then-FBI Director James Comey regarding Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Enough Games – They Want to Destroy Us
Karl Notturno
The past few days of news coverage have confirmed that the corporate leftist media and the Democrats are hellbent on uncritically warping every fact and statement to support their effort to forcibly remove a democratically elected president and to demonize anyone who may stand in their way. Reality be damned. In a civil society, citizens may be entitled to their opinions but not to their own facts. But the past few years are evidence enough that we are no longer living in an actual civilized society.
Donald Trump Makes Good on a Promise But Dems Cry 'coverup'
Michael Goodwin
Timing is everything, and timing explains President Trump's decision to finally pull the ripcord and open the Obama administration's bag of dirty tricks. With his memo giving Attorney General Bill Barr the authority to declassify any documents related to the investigation of the 2016 campaign, Trump made good on a longstanding promise. Most important, his decision signaled that the War of Washington is entering a crucial new phase.
A Disturbing Glimpse into the Manufacturing of Fake News
Ken Blackwell
President Trump's enemies are providing yet another disturbing glimpse of the veritable fake news factory into which the mainstream media has morphed. Late last week, Ian Bremmer, one of the most well-known foreign policy experts in America, tweeted a made-up quote from President Trump without offering any indication that the statement was fictitious. The outrage continued to percolate across social media until Bremmer posted an "update" admitting that he had invented the "completely ludicrous" remark for the purposes of an apparent experiment.
Chicago Prosecutors Asked Cops to
Stop Investigating Jussie Smollett

Chicago prosecutors were so eager to protect Jussie Smollett, they took the ethically-questionable step of telling cops to stop investigating him – and they even let the actor's lawyers dictate what to say in court in dropping the charges, according to bombshell new documents. Prosecutors bent over backwards to keep Smollett's lawyers happy, texts released by the state's attorney's office Friday night show.
Team Obama Tells Iran: Don't Escalate, Don't Take Trump's Bait;
Sparks Calls for Ex-Obamaites to be Charged Under Logan Act

"Former Obama administration officials gave wrong-headed advice to the regime in Iran that U.S. sanctions couldn't work without European support and that the regime should just wait out the Trump administration," said Mark Dubowitz, the CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a think tank in Washington that has advised the administration on Iran policy.
Elizabeth Warren Called 'the original Rachel Dolezal' in
Awkward Interview Over Ancestry Claims

A radio interview with Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren turned awkward Friday after the host pressed the candidate over her past claims of Native American ancestry and told her, "You're kind of like the original Rachel Dolezal."
Funny How No One Wants to Look Into
That Report That Omar Married Her Brother

Monica Showalter
You'd think they'd be all over this like tabloid papparazzi. Wild and prurient news always sells papers and draws viewer eyeballs, and the scattered reports about how America's first Muslim congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, reportedly married her own brother in a bid to bring him into the country ahead of the others trying to get in, is quite a doozy.

Revoke Ilhan Omar's Marriage Fraud Immunity Card
Michelle Malkin
You wouldn't know it from the radio silence of Democratic leaders regarding radioactive Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's long-festering and bizarre bigamy scheme (which she still refuses to address), but marriage fraud is a federal felony. As the Department of Homeland Security makes clear, it is a serious crime – not a victimless, harmless infraction – that "weakens our nation's security and makes us less safe."
Buttigieg Brother-In-Law Accuses 2020 Candidate of
Lying About His Family for Political Gain

Pete Buttigieg's brother-in-law is accusing the gay Democratic presidential hopeful of hijacking his family's history for political advantage by crafting a bogus backstory of poverty, homelessness, and homophobia.

Genocide of Christians Reaches "Alarming Stage"
Raymond Ibrahim
According to the BBC report, one in three people around the world suffer from religious persecution, with Christians being "the most persecuted religious group". "Religion 'is at risk of disappearing' in some parts of the world," it noted, and "In some regions, the level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN."
ISIS Supporter Admits Beheading
Scandinavian Hiker in Morocco: 'I regret it'

An ISIS supporter suspected of leading a jihadist cell has told a court he regrets beheading one of two Scandinavian backpackers found murdered in their tent in Morocco. Abdessamad Ejjoud, 25, made the admission Thursday in Morocco where he is on trial for the murders of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, of Denmark, and Maren Ueland, 28, of Norway. "I beheaded one of them…I regret it," he was quoted as saying.
N.J. Public School District to Students:
"May Allah Continue to Shower You Love and Wisdom"

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) sent a "cease and desist" letter moments ago to West New York School District's superintendent, demanding that two district-sponsored Ramadan posters in Memorial High School be taken down. One poster offers "Warm greetings from Memorial High school" and wishes students to "Have a blessed Ramadan." The poster then beseeches that "MAY ALLAH CONTINUE TO SHOWER YOU LOVE AND WISDOM."
Police: Suspect Allegedly Beat Up,
Shoved Man Onto Tracks 'Because He Was White'

Police say they have charged a man accused of beating up and shoving another man onto the tracks at the Wood Street T Station "because he was white." Willie Hayes is facing a number of charges in the alleged incident, including ethnic intimidation, attempted homicide and aggravated assault. The criminal complaint says the victim told investigators from the hospital that he remembered the suspect saying "he was assaulting him because he was white."

Moving Closer to Mob Rule: No Choice, No Voice
Ray DiLorenzo
The Electoral system makes it difficult for any candidate to appeal only to their state's or local interests. They must have wide appeal. They cannot campaign in twelve or thirteen of the largest states and expect to win. Now the Democrat states have gotten together and said 'enough.' They plan on never losing another presidential election. They are determined to move in a radical direction never before seen in our history.
Costly Wind Power Menaces Man and Nature
Tom Harris & Jay Lehr
Wind energy can never replace fossil fuels, despite claims of environmentalists and advocates of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal (GND). It's not environment-friendly either. Indeed, wind power is hampered by many limitations... Perhaps the biggest drawback to relying on wind power is the immense amount of land required. Industrial wind turbines must be placed far apart so they don't interfere with each turbine's "wind capture area."
Report: Obama's Spying on the Press was Far More Extensive
Than Previously Thought

The full extent of Obama's actions against the press are only now coming to light. The Columbia Journalism Review reports on a newly released government document showing that the Obama Justice Department engaged in a far more sweeping effort to spy on the Associated Press than previously believed... When not harassing reporters, Obama officials refused to cooperate with them, racking up the worse record for fulfilling FOIA of any previous administration.
Judge Who Ruled on Trump's Finances is an Obama Donor
"Sure is interesting how the media has thus far missed this factoid"

Ian Miles Cheong
Amit Mehta, a U.S. federal judge, thrust himself into the public spotlight with an opinion earlier this month calling for President Trump's accounting firm to turn over the president's financial records. Coincidentally, Mehta also appears to be an Obama-Biden donor – a detail conveniently missed by most of the establishment media, if not all the fluff pieces covering his history as a lawmaker.
Illegal Alien Arrested for Trying to Drag 14 Year Old Girl Into
His Truck in Seattle Had Been Deported Multiple Times

King County prosecutors Monday charged a 51-year-old Burien man with luring and second-degree assault for allegedly trying to drag a Federal Way girl into his truck last week. Esequiel Medina-Vasquez was arrested Thursday night and remains jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail, jail and court records show.
Republican Google Engineer Writes Open Letter About Company's 'Outrage Mobs' and 'Witch Hunts'
The open letter, published Tuesday morning on Medium, was written by software engineer Mike Wacker, who was reported himself multiple times via the company's anonymous reporting tools. "If left unchecked," Wacker wrote, "these outrage mobs will hunt down any conservative, any Christian, and any independent free thinker at Google who does not bow down to their agenda."
New York Times Op-Ed
Calls Out 'unlivable' Conditions in Democratic-led Cities

A New York Times opinion piece is calling attention to the "unlivable" conditions in many American cities, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's hometown of San Francisco. In the op-ed, titled "America's Cities Are Unlivable. Blame Wealthy Liberals," author Farhad Manjoo wrote of the "developing-world nightmare" unfolding in his home state.
WaPo Uses Fake IRS Document to Bash President Trump
It is marked "DRAFT", never mentions the name Donald Trump, is not signed and was never forwarded to the Treasury Department, all of which would have been done if the memo were real and not the Deep State wish list.
Chicago Judge Orders Smollett Criminal Case – Unsealed!!
A Chicago judge just rocked the justice landscape by ordering the file in the Jussie Smollett criminal case unsealed. The reason for this change falls on how Smollett forfeited his rights to keep the case sealed to protect his privacy by talking to the media before and after charges were dismissed.
U.S. Special Envoy Schools UN Security Council on
True Causes of Palestinians' Plight

Joseph A. Klein
Jason Greenblatt, President Trump's special envoy for international negotiations, schooled the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday regarding the obvious cause of Palestinian suffering in Gaza. He said that the Security Council needs "to admit that Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are the primary barrier to the dreams of those residents of Gaza who want to live in peace, raise their families and find meaningful work."
President Trump Suggests John Kerry Violated Logan Act with Unprecedented Private Meetings with Iranian Regime
President Trump called out former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry for a likely violation of the Logan Act for his working with Iran against the United States. Trump tweeted his criticism of Kerry as he commented on new harsh sanctions against Iran targeting the state sponsor of terrorism's for oil exports by the elimination of waivers for importers.

State Dept. Denys it Arranged the Meeting

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) had dinner with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, Politico reported Thursday. Feinstein's office said her dinner was "arranged in consultation with the State Department." The State Department said it had not asked the senior senator from California to attend the dinner.
Loretta Lynch Deals Another Blow to FBI's Cover-Up Story
The implausible justification for why James Comey's FBI opened an investigation into the Trump campaign – a drunken encounter between a low-level campaign aide and an Australian diplomat in the spring of 2016, we've been told – is falling apart quickly. And the newly-released testimony of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch just gave Comey's cover-up story another blow.
Trump Signs Order Cracking Down on
Welfare-Dependent Legal Immigration

The order signed by Trump will enforce existing 1996 laws known as the "Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act" and "Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act" which were signed by then-President Bill Clinton. The order ensures that federal agencies will enforce the existing 1996 laws which seek to save American taxpayers by having their public welfare funding benefits reimbursed when they are used by a legal immigrant.
POTUS Trump to Use Executive Power to LOWER Healthcare Costs While Dems Dither and 'investigate'
In another effort to contrast himself with "do-nothing Democrats" in Congress, POTUS Donald Trump is planning to use executive actions to substantially lower healthcare costs for all Americans. As reported by The Wall Street Journal, the president is preparing to issue an executive order forcing healthcare providers – hospitals, internists, specialists, etc. – to reveal the discounted and negotiated rates for various procedures that they negotiate with insurance companies.
Pelosi Preys on President Trump but Claims She "Prays" for Him
Judi McLeod
At the rate that contrived gut-deep hatred of President Donald Trump is going, someday soon when looking up the word 'deranged', in the dictionary there'll be a picture of Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi beside it. The Democrats, in a frenzied rage since election night 2016 and egged on daily by their running dog media, are getting out-of-control crazier by day.
Pure Evil – Illegal Alien Stabs Elderly Grandmother to Death as
She Begs for Her Life

The man accused of stabbing an elderly woman to death in her Sharpstown home detailed the gruesome killing to police investigators, saying that he spent at least 40 minutes with her as she begged for her life, according to prosecutors.

8-10 Somali Teens Armed with Hammers Attack Bystanders at
East Bank Rail Station in MN; Media Oddly Quiet

Elizabeth Vaughn
Alpha News MN has reported that a group of 8-10 Somali teens attacked travelers at the East Bank Light Rail Station in Minneapolis on Friday night. There were several injuries reported. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this incident is how little media attention it received. The second most remarkable thing is that none of the article titles about this story indicate that these teenagers were Somali.

Obama Clinton Coup Attempt:
Decimating the "peaceful transition of power"

L.J. Keith
The attempted coup staged by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump has completely destroyed the notion of the "peaceful transition of power" in America. Never before in the history of the Republic has an outgoing President attempted to sabotage and undermine his successor. Until Barack Obama. The very fabric of the United States demands that the integrity of our elections be respected. No two-term President has ever sought to destroy the Presidency of his successor by maliciously undermining them both before and after he was elected.
Spygate Origins: Ten Questions
Jasper Fakkert
News that Attorney General William Barr had appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to examine the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion investigations has sent shockwaves across Washington. Here are ten key questions that remain to be answered in the scandal that has become known as Spygate:
Trey Gowdy:
FBI Withheld 'game changer' Transcript Material from FISA Court

Republican lawmakers who have seen the relevant documents believe exculpatory evidence related to Papadopoulos was not included in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications targeting former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Dagen McDowell: Obama-era FBI, DOJ Officials 'worried'
What Barr's Review Into Russia Probe Could Find

Are Obama-era intelligence officials worried about what Attorney General William Barr's investigation Ito the origins of the Russia probe will find? Fox Business' Dagen McDowell believes they are, and said that is why some Democrats are questioning Barr's motives.

U.S. Attorney John Durham
Has Been Reviewing Origins of Russia Probe 'for weeks'

The U.S. attorney appointed to examine the origins of the Russia investigation has been working on his review "for weeks," a person familiar with the process told Fox News on Tuesday.

Joe diGenova: 'John Brennan is the
Mastermind' of 'Conspiracy to Frame Donald Trump'

DiGenova said, "It's very important for people to realize this was not some little idea that popped into Brennan's head. There was a brazen plot that started before the election, and the plot was to illegally exonerate Hillary Clinton so that she could become president, and then if she lost, there was an insurance policy to frame Donald Trump so he could be prevented from taking office or removed from office after inauguration."
The Blue-Collar Jobs Boom Nobody Seems to Notice
(Because It's Happening Under Trump)

John Merline
Joe Biden, who is currently leading in the polls against the horde of other Democratic presidential hopefuls, believes he can win back the working-class voters who defected to Donald Trump last election and thereby win the presidency. "The stock market is roaring. But you don't feel it," he said at a rally. "There are – $2 trillion tax cut last year. Did you feel it? Did you get anything from it? Of course not. Of course not." Actually, they did get something out of it. A lot, as it turns out.
Christian Student Forced to Write Islamic Conversion Creed
Appeals Case to Supreme Court

During the 2014-2015 school year, a Christian teenage girl was forced to recite the Islamic conversion creed – the Shahada – in writing for her 11th-grade class. She was also taught that "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian." The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) sued the school responsible, and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled with the school. TMLC appealed to the Supreme Court, filing a Writ of Certiorari on Monday.
SCOTUS Asked to Determine How Far Public Schools
Can Go in Promoting Islam While Disparaging Christianity

Leo Hohmann
Since about 2009 when U.S. public-schools started introducing Islamic-related lesson plans into their curricula, there has been no corresponding instruction on Christianity, its major religious tenets or the positive impact it has had on Western civilization. Historic figures such as explorer Christopher Columbus and President George Washington have taken on increasingly negative profiles in many schools, where "white privilege" is taught as the biggest sin handed down from our forefathers.
Clean Energy Kaput 'Clean' Energy Kaput: Germany's 'Inevitable' Wind & Solar 'Transition'
an Inevitable & Total Failure

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.
California May Go Dark This Summer, and Most Aren't Ready
A plan by California's biggest utility to cut power on high-wind days during the onrushing wildfire season could plunge millions of residents into darkness. And most people aren't ready. "I'm worried," Gov. Newsom said Thursday during a budget briefing in Sacramento. "We're all worried about it for the elderly. We're worried about it because we could see people's power shut off not for a day or two but potentially a week."

CNN's Jim Acosta
Misrepresents Trump Speech on Asylum Seekers

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta misrepresented remarks President Donald Trump made during a Rose Garden speech selling a White House immigration plan. Acosta tweeted during the Thursday speech that Trump had "[painted] asylum seekers with a broad brush," saying of them "these are frivolous claims." But Trump did almost the opposite, stressing the importance of legitimate asylum seekers and distinguishing them from illegitimate asylum seekers.
Resurfaced Video Shows Joe Biden Pushing Border Fence,
Calling for Employers Who Hired 'illegals' to Be Punished

Former Vice President Joe Biden, while a senator in 2006, advocated for a southern border wall and punishment for employers who hired illegal immigrants.

Joe Biden Promises to Take Us Back to the Obama Years –
Why Would We Want to Do That?

Cal Thomas
Joe Biden, the leading Democrat in the overcrowded presidential sweepstakes (there are more of them running than horses in the recent Kentucky Derby), appears to want to take America back to the days of the Obama administration, which he was a part of for eight years. What would that look like?
What Joe Biden Should Remember When He Evokes Jim Crow
Deroy Murdock
Thanks to Republicans, he told voters, "You've got Jim Crow sneaking back in." This comment paired nastily with Biden's comments before black voters in Virginia in August 2012. He said that if that year's GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, and Republicans won the election, "They're gonna put y'all back in chains." Biden absurdly suggested that Republicans long to restore slavery. Biden must have forgotten his U.S. history. Here is a badly needed booster shot.
Yes, Google Censors Conservatives –
Even Liberal Journalists Now Admit It

Dan Gainor
Journalists have repeatedly questioned whether conservatives are being discriminated against by Big Tech companies like Google or Twitter. They are – just ask the liberal Columbia Journalism Review.

Will Political Correctness Kill Classic Movies?
Christian Toto
What about James Bond's early adventures, in which 007 treated female characters in a sexist fashion? Even a comedy classic such as 1959's "Some Like It Hot," featuring two men dressed in drag, could be insensitive given modern mores. Could problematic films eventually be pulled from home video and streaming services? Sound hysterical? ... In fact, it's already been done.
Petition to Remove Rashida Tlaib for Fake Address Lie
Surpasses 300,000 Signatures

Democrat Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is facing nationwide calls for her resignation or removal from office after Big League Politics exposed that Tlaib lied about her address in order to illegally register to vote, run for office, and represent a state House district that she did not live in – violating federal and state laws in the process.
