    The Next Migrant Crisis May Come Out of This Syrian Region

    The civil war in Syria has killed over 100,000 civilians, displaced millions more, and produced a historic migrant crisis that affects Europe to this day. But the situation could get even worse if things go wrong in Idlib, a city in eastern Syria. We discuss with Luke Coffey of The Heritage Foundation. Plus: One Democratic senator suggests all men should “shut up,” in reference to the accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    • President Donald Trump says Kavanaugh is “such an outstanding man, it’s very hard for me to imagine anything happened.”
    • Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley tweeted, “We’re going to continue to try to hear from Dr. [Christine] Ford in any format she’s comfortable [with—] open session/closed session/private staff interviews/public staff interviews [—because] her information is very important.”

  • Trump Tightens Grip on EPA Amid Resisting Bureaucracy

    Trump Tightens Grip on EPA Amid Resisting Bureaucracy

    A political appointee will become the No. 2 lawyer at the Environmental Protection Agency, in a change announced Thursday aimed at ensuring that someone committed to President Donald Trump’s agenda is in charge.

    The move comes as news reports indicate parts of the federal bureaucracy—including some who had key jobs during the previous administration—have rebelled against the elected president.

    The change in who serves as EPA’s deputy general counsel also comes as the agency seeks more uniformity in legal interpretations from its regional offices across the country, The Daily Signal has learned. READ MORE...

  • The Reckless Coverage of Kavanaugh Allegations Is Why Americans Don’t Trust the Media

    The Reckless Coverage of Kavanaugh Allegations Is Why Americans Don’t Trust the Media

    The last few weeks of coverage of the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have been a perfect example of why the American people don’t trust the media.

    The sheer breadth of wild and reckless reporting on the situation has been extraordinary, even by the media’s increasingly low standards.

    There have been a staggering number of backtracks and incidences of simply false reporting.

    NBC published a social media post by one of Kavanaugh’s classmates, Christina King Miranda, saying: This incident did happen. Many of us heard a buzz about it indirectly with few specific details. However Christine’s vivid recollection should be more than enough for us to truly, deeply know that the accusation is true.” READ MORE...

  • Woman Who Was High School Friend of Kavanaugh’s Calls Claim of Sexual Assault ‘Absolutely Fishy’

    Woman Who Was High School Friend of Kavanaugh’s Calls Claim of Sexual Assault ‘Absolutely Fishy’

    A friend who graduated high school the same year as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says she could not picture him in the situation described by the woman who accuses him of sexually assaulting her when they were teens.

    The allegation is “absolutely fishy,” Lisa Molina Heaps told The Daily Signal.

    “It’s interesting, even in those small social circles in Washington, D.C., private boys and girls schools, there were certain people who had reputations and people that had crazy reputations, people that had reputations for being partiers, things like that. He did not,”  Heaps, 53, said Wednesday of Kavanaugh in a phone interview. READ MORE...

    Legal Jihad: Islamic Terrorist Uses American Courts To Enforce Sharia Law

    America remembers the terror attacks on September 11, 2001: Over 3,000 Americans died, and thousands injured, due to Jihadis’ attacks using airlines to destroy buildings as metaphors of western dominance: Jihadis destroyed the World Trade Center’s towers; and damaged the Pentagon; but failed to attack a target speculated to be the White House.

  • I Stand With Brett Kavanaugh

    I Stand With Brett Kavanaugh

    When I read Christine Blasey Ford’s account of being assaulted when she was a teenager, I felt sick to my stomach.

    How could you not after reading how she was trapped in a room and pinned down as a boy groped her and tried to rip her clothes off? This is a serious allegation.

    Ford should be treated with respect, and she deserves an opportunity to share her story.

    She is not, however, entitled to blind faith that everything she says is true. Judge Brett Kavanaugh also deserves to be heard and should be treated with the same level of respect. READ MORE...

  • Destroying America: US National Debt Will Hit 99 Trillion Dollars By 2048

    Destroying America: US National Debt Will Hit 99 Trillion Dollars By 2048

    Temporary prosperity that is created by exploding levels of debt is not actually prosperity at all.  At this moment, the U.S. government is 21.4 trillion dollars in debt, and we have been adding an average of more than a trillion dollars a year to that debt since 2009.  And if we stay on the path that we are currently on, the trajectory of our debt will soon accelerate dramatically.  In fact, as you will see below, the Congressional Budget Office is now projecting that the U.S. national debt will reach 99 trillion dollars by 2048 if nothing changes.  Congressional Budget Office projections always tend to be overly optimistic, and so the reality will probably be much worse than that.  Of course, we will never actually see the day when our national debt reaches 99 trillion dollars.  Our government (and our entire society along with it) will collapse long before we ever get to that point.  In our endless greed, we are literally destroying America, and emergency action must be taken immediately if we are to survive.
