    Despite What You’ve Heard, Trump Didn’t Say Immigrants Are ‘Animals’

    In a Wednesday meeting with Californians who oppose the state’s sanctuary city laws, President Trump spoke about MS-13 gang members, who have repeatedly re-entered the United States illegally and commited horrific crimes.

    Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims told Trump that she cannot report an MS-13 member to federal authorities unless he met a “certain threshold,” which she felt made her city unsafe. In response, Trump said: “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.” READ MORE...

    Nikki Haley Slams UN, Walks Out On Palestinian Representative

    ‘Those who suggest the violence has anything to do with the U.S. location of the embassy are sorely mistaken.’

    U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley slammed the United Nations on Tuesday for pushing an investigation into the measures Israel took to secure its border during violent clashes with Hamas-backed insurgents earlier this week. After she concluded her speech, she walked out of the chamber when a Palestinian representative began to speak.

    For months, Palestinians have been protesting along the Gaza-Israeli border in objection to Israel’s 70 years in existence. Protestors have been reportedly burning tires in order to create a thick black cloud of smoke that obfuscates them and enables them to carry out acts of violence. Israel Defense Forces (IDF) say Hamas insurgents used the U.S.’s embassy relocation to Jerusalem as an excuse to storm the border and plant explosives. At least 58 Palestinians were killed yesterday, spurring the U.N. to propose investigating the IDF to determine if their actions violated international law — a proposal Haley slammed as preposterous.

    Amazon Boots Christian Nonprofit From Donations Program Because Of SPLC’s ‘Hate List’

    A non-profit, public interest law firm which focuses on religious freedom issues has been booted from AmazonSmile, after the Southern Poverty Law Center deemed the law firm a “hate group.”

    In a statement released Thursday, Alliance for Defending Freedom President Michael Farris said the law firm has been excluded from the retail giant’s program, which donates a small portion of purchases to the nonprofit of the customer’s choice. Farris said the firm’s exclusion is the result of Amazon’s reliance upon SPLC, an organization that has long been regarded as a glorified direct-mail scam that profits from hate-mongering.

    5 Ways The Left Has Already Brought ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ To Life

    “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a TV show based on a Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, has returned to Hulu for a second season. The Emmy award-winning show’s return resurfaces its comparisons of Republicans and pro-life policies to the dystopian nightmare that Elizabeth Moss’s character, Offred, finds herself in the theocratic regime of Gilead.

    The show has become something akin to a rallying cry for pro-abortionists and liberals everywhere who spend their weekends #Resisting. Protestors dressed in crimson robes and white hats abound along protest routes and state capitol buildings to express their ire against President Trump or to oppose bills that would regulate abortion. They say, to regulate abortion or implement a travel ban that mirrors one  the Obama administration set up is just like the cruel regime depicted in the TV show that strips citizens of all natural rights.

    How Progressives Changed Our View Of Rights And The Constitution

    In the eighth lecture of Hillsdale College’s free online Constitution 101 course (which you can take along with me here) Ronald J. Pestritto, dean of the college’s Graduate School of Statesmanship, explains how Progressives sought to expand the role of government and get rid of many constraints the Founding Fathers put in place.

    Teddy Roosevelt Altered U.S. Government Forever

    Theodore Roosevelt was frequently irritated at the judiciary branch of government for thwarting Progressive aims to expand the role of government and its efforts to, in his mind, make life better for working-class Americans. In a speech delivered in 1912, Roosevelt said courts often obstruct the will of the people in an unproductive manner.
