    I Tried Telemedicine and Was Amazed. Here’s Why It Can Be a Huge Aid This Flu Season.

    Flu season is the worst it has been since health officials began keeping records in 2004, and by some measures, it’s still getting worse.

    According to a recent weekly flu report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been 53 flu-related deaths this season. The disease is currently active in 48 states and Puerto Rico, CNN reported.

    While hospitals and urgent care clinics are filled up with patients waiting for treatment, there are other innovative options available that can deliver treatment to patients faster and with more cost effectiveness. READ MORE...

  • To Stop Mass School Shootings, Fight Fire With Fire By Arming Teachers

    To Stop Mass School Shootings, Fight Fire With Fire By Arming Teachers

    In the wake of the recent Parkland Florida school shooting in which an evil and disturbed young man opened fire on innocent, unarmed students and teachers, it shocks me to see people suggest that the best way to prevent these attacks is by disarming even more innocent people.

    The reality is true. The solution to preventing these types of mass shooting attacks is to increase the likelihood that a deranged killer will be neutralized by a lawfully armed citizen before he can wreak havoc. With 17 of our own dead, now is not the time to punish law-abiding citizens by taking away even more of their rights and making them more defenseless. Now is the time to fight back, to protect our communities, and to make sure no evil coward will ever again be able to walk into a school believing that nobody will be able to shoot back at him.

  • 13 Russian Nationals Charged With Election Meddling, Americans Cleared

    13 Russian Nationals Charged With Election Meddling, Americans Cleared

    A federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals and a Russian agency for attempting to meddle in the 2016 election, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Friday. Americans involved with the entities were deemed “unwitting” participants.

    The Russians allegedly posed as U.S. citizens, created false personas, and operated on social media in an attempt to grow and influence U.S. audiences. They were charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States.

    The jury was called by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating Russia’s election meddling and whether the Trump campaign might have colluded with the country’s government to win the presidency. The Russian nationals and the Internet Research Agency are accused of building a misleading online presence and staging rallies with the “strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system.” Some of them communicated with unwitting political activists and associates of the Trump campaign.

  • We Can't Have A Debate About Guns If Liberals Keep Lying About Them

    We Can’t Have A Debate About Guns If Liberals Keep Lying About Them

    There’s always a lot of emotion after a horrific school shooting, and that’s completely understandable. There is also an immediate push for vague “do-something” gun-control legislation often wholly untethered from the incidents it is purporting to stop, which is less understandable. Worse, most of these efforts are bolstered by falsehoods and half-truths that make it virtually impossible to have a genuine discussion about the problem.

    It’s an endless task, but let’s just take Joe Scarborough’s Washington Post column on the Parkland shooting as an example, since he uses a couple of the most fraudulent talking points about modern gun ownership. READ MORE...

  • 5 Takeaways From the 2018 Index of Economic Freedom

    5 Takeaways From the 2018 Index of Economic Freedom

    The Heritage Foundation’s 2018 Index of Economic Freedom—an annual global study that compares countries’ entrepreneurial environments—was released earlier this month.

    Since 1995, the index has measured a nation’s commitment to limited government and free enterprise on a scale of 0 to 100 by evaluating four critical policy pillars, including rule of law and regulatory efficiency.

    These commitments are powerful forces that help societies grow in economic freedom. Countries that achieve higher levels of economic freedom consistently outperform others in economic growth, long-term prosperity, and social progress. Those with lower economic freedom, on the other hand, risk economic stagnation, high unemployment, and deteriorating social conditions. READ MORE...

  • New York Times Struggles Over If Any Conservatives Are Fit To Print

    New York Times Struggles Over If Any Conservatives Are Fit To Print

    This week, New York Times op-ed editor Bari Weiss tweeted out congratulations to U.S. Olympic figure skater Mirai Nagasu. The six-word tweet read, “Immigrants: They get the job done,” a reference to the line “Immigrants, we get the job done,” from the musical “Hamilton.” Within minutes, abuse started streaming in in response. The problem? Nagasu was born in California to immigrant parents, so is not herself an immigrant.

    Weiss was berated as a racist on Twitter for what was either an honest mistake, or as she says, the use of poetic license to celebrate the contributions of immigrants to the United Sates. Never mind that Weiss, who is viewed as one the Times’ more conservative writers, was arguing in favor of immigration. By mislabeling Nagasu she engaged in racism, or a micro-aggression, or something. READ MORE...

  • Trump Should Kick the Protectionism Can Down the Road

    Trump Should Kick the Protectionism Can Down the Road

    President Donald Trump has certainly ramped up the protectionist rhetoric in recent weeks.

    Last month in Montreal, Trump’s trade adviser, Ambassador Robert Lighthizer, renewed the president’s threat that the United States could withdraw from NAFTA because in its current form, it is “really not a good agreement for the United States.”

    A U.S. pull-out from NAFTA would seriously damage the American economy. For example, as AutoNews.com reported, “Texas would be one of the hardest-hit states if the U.S. withdraws from NAFTA, with 970,000 jobs at risk and nearly half of its exports ($112 billion) destined to the NAFTA market, according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.” READ MORE...
