    What Lincoln Foresaw Would Occur Under Maxine Waters’ Mob Justice

    In 1836, at the Young Men’s Lyceum in Springfield, Illinois, a 28-year-old lawyer named Abraham Lincoln delivered one of his finest addresses.

    Lincoln condemned the sharp increase of mobs in America, which had exploded in number as the debate over slavery and regional animosity intensified.

    “Accounts of outrages committed by mobs, form the every-day news of the times,” Lincoln said.

    Many of these mobs had turned violent and subverted the law. They were undermining free government.

    Calls for civility are sometimes vapid excuses to shut down political dissent. But what’s occurring now in America is not just heated debate at political rallies, it’s a surge in mob activity directed at political opponents in everyday life. READ MORE...

  • The False Premise of the Equal Rights Amendment

    The False Premise of the Equal Rights Amendment

    The idea that the Constitution doesn’t protect equal rights for women, or that the Founders didn’t include women in their views about individual rights, is completely wrong.

    Unfortunately, some self-described members of the “Me Too” movement have embraced the so-called Equal Rights Amendment to “fix” the Constitution, including actress Alyssa Milano, who spoke at rallies to generate support in New York City and Washington, D.C.

    Illinois recently became the 37th state to ratify this proposed constitutional amendment, which says, in part: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” READ MORE...

  • How Harvard Secretly Discriminates Against Americans of Asian Descent

    How Harvard Secretly Discriminates Against Americans of Asian Descent

    In April, a group launched a lawsuit against the school, insisting that Harvard University release hidden information regarding its admissions.

    The organization leading the lawsuit is Students for Fair Admissions, which is comprised of Asian-American students who applied to get into Harvard and were rejected. The group says it believes the school is guilty of racial discrimination, specifically against students of Asian descent.

    “The public has a right to know exactly what is going on at Harvard,” said William S. Consovoy, a lawyer for Students for Fair Admissions, according to The New York Times. “Even if this were a commercial issue—as Harvard would like to portray it—the public would have a right to know if the product is defective or if a fraud is being perpetrated.” READ MORE...

  • Blame California’s Crazy Left-Wing Politics for Water Rationing

    Blame California’s Crazy Left-Wing Politics for Water Rationing

    California suffers from droughts, but the state’s government is an endless well of bad ideas.

    The latest absurd legislation, which Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed into law, places onerous restrictions on water usage.

    California citizens will be limited to using 55 gallons of water a day now and just 50 per day by 2030.

    According to the San Jose  Mercury News, the new laws will “require cities, water districts and large agricultural water districts to set strict annual water budgets, face fines of $1,000 per day if they don’t meet them, and $10,000 a day during drought emergencies.” READ MORE...

  • Debunking 3 Myths About Trump’s Moves to Make Bureaucrats More Accountable

    In an under-the-radar move before Memorial Day weekend, President Donald Trump signed a series of important executive orders that could speed up “draining the swamp” in Washington.

    The executive orders adjust rules pertaining to federal workers so that it now will be easier to get rid of bad employees in a shorter amount of time.

    The orders also limit the time federal employees may devote to union organizing during work hours. And they set up a shorter time for negotiating contracts in the collective bargaining process. READ MORE...

    These California Rebels Are Working With Trump, Not Against Him

    The resistance is growing in California.

    The Golden State has set itself up as the stridently progressive thorn in the side of the Trump administration. California has not just become a sanctuary state in an attempt to undermine federal immigration enforcement, but has gone a step further.

    Recently, California lawmakers proposed giving health care to illegal immigrants, which would make it the first state to do so. The plan would cost state taxpayers billions of dollars.

    However, as the state, which is under nearly one-party rule, doubles down on its left-wing drift, there is bubbling discontent among residents who are outraged by California’s increasing lawlessness and wild spending. READ MORE...

  • The Left’s War Against Prosperity in Seattle

    The Left’s War Against Prosperity in Seattle

    The left is sleepless in Seattle, working overtime to squander years of economic success.

    Seattle is, by many measures, one of the fastest-growing cities in America if not the fast-growing city.

    A few big tech companies, including Amazon and Microsoft, plus other large, successful businesses such as Boeing and Starbucks, have fueled this explosive rise.

    But prosperity hasn’t necessarily bred contentment, as the traditionally left-wing city turned on the elements that made it rich.

    In the latest move to soak the productive part of the city’s economy, the Seattle City Council voted 9-0 to approve a new “head tax” imposing a $250-per-worker charge on companies making over $20 million a year. READ MORE...
