    Reporting the News Undermined in ‘Era’ of Trump, Black Journalists Argue

    Speakers on a panel of journalists at the annual meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in Washington said journalism is suffering in the era of President Donald Trump.

    “One of the things that has just been boiling my blood is the lack of respect for the press coming from the orange man,” Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., said Friday, opening a panel discussion called “Black Journalists: Reporting Our Experiences in the Era of Trump.”

    The event was part of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington. Dubbed “the leading policy conference on issues impacting African-Americans and the global black community,” the conference opened Wednesday and ends Sunday. READ MORE...

    New Batch of Strzok-Page Emails Suggests FBI Use of Unsecure Devices

    Email messages between two FBI officials suggest widespread use of unsecure communications by the bureau, according to records obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

    Judicial Watch, a Washington-based nonpartisan government watchdog organization, announced Thursday that it received 47 pages of records from the Justice Department that show FBI officials used “unsecure devices” while discussing a matter involving the European Union.

    The records include emails between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, two FBI officials who were close to investigations of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Neither remains with the bureau. READ MORE...

    NATO Chief Credits Trump for Allies’ Boosting Defense Spending

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg says allies are stepping up in their commitments to defense spending, and gives some of the credit to President Donald Trump.

    Stoltenberg also told an audience at The Heritage Foundation in Washington on Friday that the international defense alliance likely would not name its headquarters after Sen. John McCain, the veteran Arizona Republican and prominent defense hawk who died Aug. 25.

    “President Trump has been outspoken on this issue, and I have thanked him for his leadership on defense spending,” Stoltenberg said at the leading conservative think tank’s Capitol Hill headquarters. “Since President Trump took office, NATO allies across Europe and Canada have spent an additional $41 billion extra in U.S. dollars on defense.” READ MORE...

  • Conservatives Non-Challenging Attitude Toward Change

    Conservatives Non-Challenging Attitude Toward Change

    America truly has lost her way. Founded as a nation where the individual citizen was sovereign and the maintaining of liberty was a responsibility understood by all, we have transgressed into a country where we sit on the edges of our seats waiting for the government to save us from ourselves. Government has become the central focus of our lives as conservatives wait for Trump to “make America great again” and liberals wait for the Democrats to create utopia. This was not the original intent of government when our nation was created. Government was recognized by the founders as a necessary evil and worked to give us a nation where the powers of government were few and limited in their scope. Our bill of rights explicitly states in the tenth amendment that all powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the states or the people. America was founded as a nation where the people had the freedom to govern their own lives and the government had no power to tell them how to live. Yet, here we are after more than a century of progressivism and government controlled education waiting for the government to fix all of our problems. READ MORE...

  • Obama Reminds Us Why Trump Is President

    Obama Reminds Us Why Trump Is President

    “How hard can that be? Saying that Nazis are bad,” former President Barack Obama asked a crowd in Illinois last week.

    Well, probably no harder than saying the words “radical Islam,” I imagine. Or maybe it’s slightly less difficult than not sending billions of dollars to Holocaust-denying terror regimes that have both the means and intent to murder Jews—in 2018, not 1942. And it’s definitely a lot easier than not meeting, posing, and then smiling for a picture with Louis Farrakhan. But thanks for the lecture. READ MORE...

  • The Lesson Israel Can Teach Us About Sexual Abuse and #MeToo

    The Lesson Israel Can Teach Us About Sexual Abuse and #MeToo

    All over the news in the U.S. these days are lurid tales of powerful, famous men and, increasingly, women caught up in sexual harassment scandals.

    The phenomenon has become so rampant it has gone viral, with the “Me Too” movement coming to represent a nationwide backlash against sexual abuse. This rash of abuse claims seems incongruous with an age of growing societal tolerance of diverse sexual mores and expanding consciousness around women’s and gay rights.

    Why is a so-called liberal society still so tolerant of sexual abuse? Could it be that harassment is itself a consequence of liberalism? READ MORE...

  • Obama Was Wrong on Oil. We Did ‘Drill Our Way Out of the Problem.’

    Obama Was Wrong on Oil. We Did ‘Drill Our Way Out of the Problem.’

    When gas prices topped $4 per gallon in May 2011, President Barack Obama said, “We can’t just drill our way out of the problem.”

    Throughout his presidency, Obama stated some version of that sentiment every time he wanted to push to subsidize alternative energy sources.

    More than seven years later, human ingenuity, technological innovation, and the power of the free market have proven him wrong. To the benefit of American families across the country, the United States is now the largest global producer of crude oil. READ MORE...
