• The Left Is Doubling Down on Schemes to Pack the Supreme Court

    The Left Is Doubling Down on Schemes to Pack the Supreme Court

    Anything the left can’t control, it aims to destroy.

    From campaigns to abolish the Senate to the growing movement to upend the Electoral College after Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election, progressives have few qualms about getting rid of long-standing constitutional institutions.

    Now they’re doubling down on their efforts to wage war on the Supreme Court.

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that Democrats should consider court-packing during an appearance at Yale, noting that he would try to add two seats if he were president. READ MORE...

    Media Ignores Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Comments

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, stirred controversy again with an anti-Semitic tirade last week, declaring to a packed audience, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country [Israel].”

    According to the Media Research Center, “CBS This Morning” devoted 30 seconds of air time to Omar’s comments Monday—while the other two broadcast networks didn’t cover it at all.

    Many in the media have downplayed this incident. ABC News even called it a, quote, “family feud.” READ MORE...

  • The Left Wants to Transform Our Election System. It’s a Recipe for 1-Party Rule.

    The Left Wants to Transform Our Election System. It’s a Recipe for 1-Party Rule.

    Democrats intend to save “democracy” by putting themselves in charge of elections.

    As absurd as that sounds, it really is a part of the inappropriately named “For the People Act of 2019,” or H.R. 1, moving through the House of Representatives.

    The Heritage Foundation created a list of the law’s provisions, which you can read here. The Conservative Action Project also provided this quick rundown of the bill:

    • Forces states to implement mandatory voter registration, removing civic participation as a voluntary choice, and increasing chances for error. READ MORE...

    Most Americans Can’t Pass a Basic Citizenship Test. Here’s Why We Should Be Worried.


    Can a nation survive ignorant of its past? We are testing that very question right now.

    According to a recent survey by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, most Americans would fail a basic citizenship test.

    Axios published a roundup of how participants performed. The results weren’t good.

    People did relatively well on the most basic questions. Seven out of 10 knew that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and that Franklin Roosevelt was president during World War II. READ MORE...

  • How Abortion Became a 'Positive Good' to Proponents

    How Abortion Became a ‘Positive Good’ to Proponents

    “The Right Side of History” is a podcast dedicated to exploring current events through a historical lens and busting left-wing myths about figures and events of America’s past.

    On this week’s episode, hosts Jarrett Stepman and Fred Lucas interview Kyle Sammin, a lawyer and writer from Pennsylvania, who recently compared the shifting philosophy of pro-abortion proponents to those who defended slavery in the early 19th century.

    Sammin explains how a social situation, slavery, once treated as an unfortunate evil, was turned into a “positive good” by John C. Calhoun, a prominent Southern statesman, and why that matters to the abortion debate today. READ MORE...

  • Former NYT Editor Called Out for Plagiarism in Book ‘Merchants of Truth’

    Former NYT Editor Called Out for Plagiarism in Book ‘Merchants of Truth’

    Jill Abramson, former editor of The New York Times, is being called out for plagiarizing in her new book “Merchants of Truth.”

    While Abramson has made some interesting comments about left-wing bias at the Times, which we’ve pointed out previously on this show, it’s clear that some of her journalistic practices haven’t exactly been on the level.

    Vice News correspondent Michael C. Moynihan pointed out that many passages in her book appeared to be lifted directly from the work of other journalists. READ MORE...

  • There's Nothing New About the Green New Deal

    There’s Nothing New About the Green New Deal


    Democrats unveiled their latest version of the Green New Deal on Thursday, but despite some concessions to reality, this version is still little more than socialism masked as environmental policy.

    It’s a modern rehash of the original New Deal of the 1930s, which, despite its success in increasing the size of government and distending the Constitution, had its excesses contained by the Supreme Court.

    President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal also failed to turn the economy around.

    The Green New Deal, introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., is a little less aggressive in its calls to abolish the carbon economy than previous proposals. However, their nonbinding resolution still demands “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions” by 2030, among many other measures that ultimately would lead to a complete government takeover of the energy sector.

  • In Rejecting the Pledge of Allegiance, the Left Is Rejecting Nationhood

    In Rejecting the Pledge of Allegiance, the Left Is Rejecting Nationhood

    Devotion to and love of flag and country is now considered hateful.

    At least that was the message given by Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees President Robert Miller when, according to a report by Campus Reform, he sent an email calling the Pledge of Allegiance “steeped in expressions of nativism and white nationalism” after the board announced it would stop saying it before meetings.

    While a seemingly small matter at a small school in California, it is emblematic of a larger debate that rages in America today. READ MORE...

  • Double Standard Revealed in Media Attack on Karen Pence's Christianity

    Double Standard Revealed in Media Attack on Karen Pence’s Christianity

    The media have complained for months that the president is unfair to them. They have even referred to him as the “divider in chief.” But what about the media’s divisive behavior to those Americans who identify as Christians?

    The media sunk to a new low when they attacked second lady Karen Pence this week for her decision to teach art at a Christian school in Virginia.

    CNN’s chief national correspondent John King even questioned whether or not Pence should receive taxpayer-funded security protection or government housing because she is working for a Christian school. READ MORE...

  • Ads About ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Won’t Get Men to Buy Your Blades, or Be Better Men

    Ads About ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Won’t Get Men to Buy Your Blades, or Be Better Men

    For some reason, one of the world’s largest razor companies decided to air a commercial chastising “toxic masculinity.”

    Gillette’s commercial, which debuted on Sunday, begins with the flimsy premise that traditional masculine culture promotes unrestrained violence and sexual urges, while other men condone it by shrugging and saying, “Boys will be boys.”

    The commercial’s solution is to quote journalists and celebrities scolding men to fix themselves—somewhat ironic, given the fact that the most egregious #MeToo stories have come from journalists and celebrities. READ MORE...
