• Illegal Border Crossings Hit 10-Year High

    Illegal Border Crossings Hit 10-Year High

    The U.S. border with Mexico is at a “breaking point,” Trump administration officials say, with arrests of illegal immigrants surging to record levels.

    In February, border agents arrested more than 66,400 people for entering the country illegally, the highest number recorded since 2008.

    “This situation is not sustainable,” Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in a press conference Monday. “The system is well beyond capacity and remains at the breaking point.”

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen outlined the latest numbers in an appearance Wednesday before the House Homeland Security Committee, now controlled by Democrats.

    “This is a crisis — pure and simple — and we need to respond accordingly,” Nielsen said in her prepared statement.… Read More...

  • After Nearly Going to Jail for Shoplifting, This Football Player Now Advocates Criminal Justice Reform

    After Nearly Going to Jail for Shoplifting, This Football Player Now Advocates Criminal Justice Reform

    Growing up in a small town outside of Jackson, Mississippi, NFL linebacker Demario Davis had never seen a two-parent household that put faith first. His mother had him when she was 16 years old and his father served in the Army. As a child, he was surrounded by drugs, crimes, and gangs.

    His football career landed him a scholarship to Arkansas State University, where as a freshman, Davis got caught shoplifting at Walmart. His bond was set at $10,000—a sum he could never afford. Without paying it, he’d go to jail.

    Davis’ football coach bailed him out.

    “Because I was an athlete, I was able to not go to jail,” Davis told the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.… 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.

    Man or woman, the march embodied a certain segment of the population that despised President Donald Trump.

  • How He's Beating Homelessness Without Government Help

    How He’s Beating Homelessness Without Government Help

    George Opudo used to drive for Uber. Picking up and dropping off customers at Union Station in Washington, just steps away from the U.S. Capitol, he’d look at homeless people and think: “That’d never be me.”

    But in September 2017, Opudo lost his car, his job, and all of his worldly possessions. With no place to go and no food to eat, Opudo was homeless.

    “I was so hungry, I didn’t know what to do,” Opudo told The Daily Signal.

    Walking around Union Station, he asked a woman where he could find some food.

    “She said, ‘Go down to the mission,’” Opudo recalled.

    Twitter CEO Celebrates His Birthday In Country Engaged in Genocide

    At 42, some people might celebrate their birthday at a backyard barbecue with friends, others might enjoy a night out on the town. A lucky few get to travel, squeezing the sand between their toes or getting bitten by frost in the French Alps.

    But if you’re Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, these sorts of celebrations are old news. So instead, you plan a 10-day meditation vacation to Myanmar, where the U.N. has accused the government-backed military of pursuing a campaign of “genocide” against its Muslim minority since August 2017.

    When you return from said vacation, you don’t use your public platform as CEO of one of the world’s largest social media platforms to spread awareness about the ethnic-cleansing campaign happening in your new favorite getaway retreat.

  • Professor Says Banning These Words Would Fix Free Speech on Campus

    Professor Says Banning These Words Would Fix Free Speech on Campus

    University of Pennsylvania law professor Amy Wax is accustomed to political wrongthink.

    Wax has a bachelor’s degree from Yale College, a medical degree from Harvard, and a law degree from Columbia. But none of those was enough to exempt her from being on the receiving end of a full-fledged campaign to get her fired. Nor was arguing 15 cases before the Supreme Court on behalf of the Justice Department, but that’s beside the point.

    Wax doesn’t fear being called racist, sexist, or xenophobic, probably because she’s been called many of those names before. Instead of retreating to the safety of her tenure when things get tough, she doubles down—demanding debate, evidence, and accountability.

    NYC Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Amazon, but Bans Walmart

    As New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio rolls out the red carpet for half of Amazon’s new “HQ2” in Long Island City, he’s doubling down on his efforts to block another big company from getting a bite of the Big Apple: Walmart.

    “Walmart does not belong in New York City,” de Blasio declared on a Friday radio segment while defending the city’s generous tax breaks for HQ2.

    “I was actively involved in the effort to keep Walmart out of New York City, [and] I would, this very day, re-engage that effort if Walmart made any effort to come back in.

  • Proof That ‘See Something, Say Something’ Can Stop a School Shooting

    Proof That ‘See Something, Say Something’ Can Stop a School Shooting

    What could have been a news cycle about yet another mass school shooting in America instead focused on a different type of terrorism this week—suspicious packages sent to high-profile public figures, all of them critics of President Donald Trump.

    Thankfully, none of the apparent mail bombs actually detonated, and everyone is safe. Law enforcement authorities successfully arrested the man they believe is responsible.

    As talking heads fill the airwaves yelling at one another about who’s to blame (answer: the man who sent the suspicious packages), few realize how lucky we are not to be discussing more children who left to go to school one day and never returned home.

  • The Alarming Findings of a New Study on Transgender Teens and Suicide

    The Alarming Findings of a New Study on Transgender Teens and Suicide

    One in every two transgender adolescents who are born female but identify as male has attempted suicide in the past year, according to a new study.

    The study, “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior,” was published in Pediatrics, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    It raises serious questions about how families, schools, doctors, government, and the media should grapple with the increasing number of children and teens who self-identify as transgender.

    In addition to the alarmingly high rate of suicide attempts among transgender boys, the study reported an attempted-suicide rate of over 40 percent for adolescents who identify as gender nonconforming (neither exclusively male or female) and nearly 30 percent for transgender girls (children and teens who were born male but identify as female).

    What Tax Reform ‘Crumbs’ Meant for These Blue Collar Workers

    HAGERSTOWN, Maryland—Tom Condon has seen Jamison Doors through many of the company’s ups and downs. A factory worker for 28 years, Condon has survived multiple rounds of layoffs, diligently scribing metal and performing other tasks to help piece together the cold storage doors the company has been making for more than 100 years.

    Now he’s enjoying the good times of the company, with bonuses given because of tax reform enabling him to take his family, including his two adult children with cerebral palsy, on a nicer vacation than the family could usually afford.

    The Santa Fe School Shooting Survivors the Media Ignored

    SANTA FE, Texas—Oh May 18, Grace John woke up late as usual.

    “Everybody talks about senioritis, but it’s real,” she told The Daily Signal.

    Grace, a senior at Santa Fe High School, located an hour outside of Houston, was looking forward to cruising through her last few days of high school. That day, she walked into the band room, and told a friend she was going to take a nap because she was sore from playing in the powder puff game the night before.

    She woke up to commotion in the hallway, and walked into the hallway to see what was going on.

  • Why His Female Law Clerks Are Among Kavanaugh’s Biggest Advocates

    Why His Female Law Clerks Are Among Kavanaugh’s Biggest Advocates

    After several women’s rights organizations suggested President Donald Trump’s pick for the next Supreme Court justice doesn’t have the support of women, a group of former female clerks came out to defend their former boss, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

    “More than 50 percent of his law clerks have been women,” said Jennifer Mascott, a law clerk for Kavanaugh in 2006-2007 who is now assistant professor of law at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.

    “There was at least one term where I believe all four of his law clerks were women. He has support from all corners and all walks of life,” Mascott said in an interview with The Daily Signal.

  • It’s Wrong To Harass A Woman, Unless She Is A Republican

    It’s Wrong To Harass A Woman, Unless She Is A Republican

    If that woman is named Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen, it’s not only acceptable to drive her out of a restaurant — it’s to be applauded.

    Jessica Valenti revealed a new standard for liberal feminists on Tuesday: Driving women out of restaurants is wrong, unless they’re a Republican. If that woman is named Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen, the behavior is not only acceptable — it’s to be applauded.

    The situation began when the head of the D.C. branch of Democratic Socialists of America tweeted the restaurant name and exact address where Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen sat down for dinner. The dinner came after a very public day for Nielsen, who defended the Trump administration’s decision to fully enforce U.S.

    Is President Donald Trump the most pro-life president in history? We discuss some of his most recent steps to protect life in this week’s edition of “Problematic Women,” along with Ed Sheeran’s outrage about pro-lifers playing his song “Small Bump” to oppose repealing Ireland’s abortion ban.

    We’re also joined by special guest Larry O’Connor of “The Larry O’Connor Show” on Washington, D.C., radio station WMAL, who called D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser “somewhat selfish” for adopting a baby as a single, full-time working mom, and take on a New York Times op-ed accusing conservative women of “appropriating” feminism.

    Finally, we discuss a woman throwing water on Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren at a restaurant in Minneapolis.

    SJW Accuses Conservative Women of ‘Appropriating’ Feminism

    Fake news, move over—there’s a new con (wo)man in town. It’s called fake feminism, and according to a woman on the left, conservative women are the culprits.

    Liberal feminist writer Jessica Valenti, author of books such as “Sex Object: A Memoir,” and “Why Have Kids?”, took to The New York Times Sunday to argue Republicans are “appropriating” feminist rhetoric in their use of the term. How dare they not ask for permission?

    In her article, “The Myth of Conservative Feminism,” Valenti writes:

    Conservatives appropriating feminist rhetoric despite their abysmal record on women’s rights is, in part, a product of the president’s notorious sexism.
