    Center for Immigration Studies Sues Southern Poverty Law Center Over False “Hate Group” Designation

    Kudos to Mark Krikorian and the Center for Immigration Studies for doing this. I wish them all success. If I can ever find a lawyer willing to do it, which has proven so far to be harder than I thought it would be, I will sue the SPLC myself. Their “hate group” designation for me and Jihad Watch is as defamatory as it is for the CIS, and has resulted in donations to Jihad Watch not being accepted by MasterCard and Visa, and in my being dropped from Patreon and GoFundMe. It has also resulted in my being shadowbanned on Twitter and Facebook, and routinely vilified in the establishment media. READ MORE...

  • Democrats Again Show Their Antisemitism with Placement of Terror-Tied Ilhan Omar On Foreign Affairs Committee

    Democrats Again Show Their Antisemitism with Placement of Terror-Tied Ilhan Omar On Foreign Affairs Committee

    The Washington Examiner reported Thursday that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), whose open hatred of Jews should have rendered her unelectable to Congress, has instead been rewarded with a plum appointment to the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

    This shows the extent to which open anti-Semitism has become mainstream and normalized on the Left today. In fact, it is likely that Omar’s paranoid hatred of Israel, rooted in Islamic anti-Semitism, made her a good candidate for this position in the eyes of Democrat leaders, who have been following a consistent anti-Israel line for years.

    The US Strikes Back Against Russia’s European Gas Empire

    KYIV, Ukraine—With the Kremlin tightening its grip on the
    European energy market, the U.S. has hardened its opposition to a controversial Russian gas pipeline, which is currently under construction through the Baltic Sea to Germany.

    For months, U.S. officials have said Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline is part of a broader Kremlin gambit to bypass Ukrainian transit pipelines, which have delivered the lion’s share of Russian natural gas exports to Europe for decades.

    Yet, despite U.S. protests, construction hasn’t stopped, and the 750-mile-long pipeline is about one-third complete as of this article’s publication. The U.S., for its part, escalated its resistance to the project this month, when U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell sent letters to construction contractors working on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, warning of “a significant risk of sanctions” unless they abandoned the project.

    Eisenhower: Enemies Of God ‘Know No God But Force’

    The 33rd President Harry S. Truman stated in his inaugural, Jan. 20, 1949: “In performing the duties of my office, I need the help and the prayers of every one of you. … The American people stand firm in the faith which has inspired this Nation from the beginning. … We believe that all men are created equal because they are created in the image of God. From this faith we will not be moved.

  • The President's Border Standoff With Democrats

    The President’s Border Standoff With Democrats

    Editor’s note: The Daily Signal’s audience tends to be passionate about standing behind the president in his showdown with congressional Democrats over securing the southern border. We begin this week’s mailbag with that  topic. Remember to write us at [email protected]Ken McIntyre

    Dear Daily Signal: Perhaps the left should back down on the partial government shutdown fight over the border wall? They’re dead wrong and too stubborn to admit it (“From Oval Office, Trump Says Border Wall Would Make Nation ‘Safer Than Ever Before’”). READ MORE...

    Hardball: Trump Bans ALL Congressional Travel On Government Aircraft

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews could learn a lesson on how to play hardball from President Donald Trump.  After canceling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plane trip to Europe and the Middle East, Trump had acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russ Vought send memo to all heads of executive departments and agencies that members of Congress were not allowed to travel on government aircraft without express permission from the White House during the government shutdown.

    “In light of the current partial government shutdown, the President has asked me to direct the heads of all executive departments and agencies of the Administration on new policies in support of Legislative Branch travel,” Vought wrote. READ MORE...

  • Seattle Couple Fears $16 Minimum Wage Could Doom Subway Franchise

    Seattle Couple Fears $16 Minimum Wage Could Doom Subway Franchise

    When Heidi Mann and her husband Karam took a leap of faith 15 years ago and purchased a Subway franchise in Seattle, they had no idea that one day their dreams could be shattered by the city’s required increases in the minimum wage.

    Nine years later, the Manns bought a second Subway sandwich shop in Kirkland, Washington, a suburb east of Seattle.

    But now their businesses are struggling as a direct result of the steady rise of the minimum wage in Seattle, now up to $16 an hour.

    The couple predict they will be forced to close their Seattle location by March 2020. READ MORE...

  • The Women’s March Is Melting Down, and It Makes Perfect Sense

    The Women’s March Is Melting Down, and It Makes Perfect Sense

    Two years into the movement, the Women’s March is melting down.

    Much of the media will blame its decay on the leaders’ unwillingness to denounce anti-Semitism, but that will only be part of the story. The other reason it will ultimately demise is because it was a fraud from the very start.

    Despite its clever branding efforts, the Women’s March never represented women as a unified force. Instead, it represented radically liberal women who were upset with the results of the 2016 presidential election. READ MORE...
