    Thousands Cheer As Argentina’s Senate Votes Against Legalizing Abortion

    Argentina’s Senate voted against legalizing abortion on Thursday in a 38-31 vote, prompting riots and cheers in Buenos Aires from assembled pro-life and pro-abortion demonstrators.

    Demonstrators in favor of the bill, which would have legalized abortion up to 14 weeks of pregnancy, reportedly threw bottles at police and started fires outside of government buildings when it was voted down in the Senate.

  • Jim Acosta Is Okay With Bullying A Woman If She's Sarah Sanders

    Jim Acosta Is Okay With Bullying A Woman If She’s Sarah Sanders

    At Thursday’s White House press briefing, CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to bully Sarah Huckabee Sanders into parroting a line after him as if she were a six-year-old child. When she refused, he stormed out of the room and angrily tweeted about it.

    In case you missed the past 48 hours of wall-to-wall media coverage, Acosta was heckled by Trump supporters at a rally the president spoke at in Tampa, Florida. While the White House correspondent was trying to do a standup report from the scene, rally-goers yelled “CNN SUCKS!” and other rude things at Acosta. For two days he was salty about it and tweeted that “the press is not the enemy,” a line  later repeated in the form of a question to Ivanka Trump at an event. READ MORE...

    We Knew About Her Racism, We Don’t Care

    In a statement released Thursday, The New York Times defended its most recent hire, Sarah Jeong, saying the newspaper of record knew about her history of racist tweets and hired her anyway.

    As The Federalist reported this morning, Jeong has repeatedly said disparaging things about white people, such as that they are “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins,” among other things, but this did not stop The New York Times from hiring her as the lead technology writer for its editorial board.

  • Watch Ocasio-Cortez Totally Fail At Explaining How To Pay For Socialism

    Watch Ocasio-Cortez Totally Fail At Explaining How To Pay For Socialism

    In an interview with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Thursday night, candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to explain how the United States would pay for all of the entitlements the self-described democratic socialist has campaigned on — including fully taxpayer-sponsored Medicare, college tuition, and housing.

    “If people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra wealthy, for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he pays as much as his secretary paid, a 15 percent tax rate, if corporations paid, if we reverse the tax bill, raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent– which is not even as high as it was before — if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there,” she said. “That’s $2 trillion in ten years.” READ MORE...

  • Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right

    Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right

    The ultra-liberal and frequently overturned U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit just ruled that the Second Amendment protects one’s right to carry a gun openly outside of the home.

    “We do not take lightly the problem of gun violence,” the majority opinion in Young v. Hawaii reads. Here’s more, emphasis added.

    For better or for worse, the Second Amendment does protect a right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense. We would thus flout the Constitution if we were to hold that, ‘in regulating the manner of bearing arms, the authority of [the State] has no other limit than its own discretion.’ Reid, 1 Ala. at 616. While many respectable scholars and activists might find virtue in a firearms-carry regime that restricts the right to a privileged few, ‘the enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table.’ READ MORE...

  • How The Peloponnesian War Brought Athens' Golden Age To An End

    How The Peloponnesian War Brought Athens’ Golden Age To An End

    In the seventh lecture of Hillsdale College’s course on the histories of Athens and Sparta, which you can follow along with me here, Victor Davis Hanson, a history fellow at Hillsdale College, explains how the Peloponnesian War brought Athens’ golden age to an end.

    To understand why the Greek city states fought amongst one another to the brink of imploding, one must turn to Thucydides’s account of the war to understand the causes and the context of the conflict. Thucydides, a Greek historian who lived through and chronicled the Peloponnesian War as an Athenian general, developed the idea of the 27-year-long period of intermittent conflicts and battles between the two city-states as being a singular war.

    Democrat Super Lobbyist Gets Immunity To Testify Against Manafort

    Fox News’s Tucker Carlson reported exclusively on Thursday night that Robert Mueller has offered Tony Podesta, the brother of a longtime friend to Hillary Clinton, immunity to testify against his business partner, Paul Manafort.

    FBI special counsel Mueller, who has been tasked with the ongoing investigation into whether Trump’s campaign associates colluded with Russian officials to steal the election from Hillary Clinton,  filed a 32-count indictment against Manafort earlier this year, charging him with tax evasion, bank fraud, and failing to register as a foreign agent, among other things. Manafort, who has pled not guilty, is in jail awaiting trial.
