• The Left's Legacy of Lying Comes to the Border Wall

    The Left’s Legacy of Lying Comes to the Border Wall

    Democrats and others on the left offer three reasons for their opposition to building a wall on America’s southern border.

    1. A wall is ineffective.
    2. A wall is too expensive.
    3. A wall is immoral.

    Each one is false, so false as to constitute lies. So, the only question is: Do Democrats and others on the left believe these lies?

    This question has plagued me all my life. Leftism is built on lies—and has been since Lenin. That’s why he named the Communist Party’s lying newspaper “Pravda” (“truth”).

    Did my left-wing professors at Columbia University really believe the United States and the Soviet Union were equally responsible for the Cold War? Did they really believe one of the most genocidal regimes in history—which butchered tens of millions its own people, starved as many as 4 million Ukrainians, enslaved seven Eastern European countries under totalitarian rule, and created the monstrous North Korean communist regime—was no more responsible for the Cold War than the United States, the freest country in human history?

  • History Lesson Explains Shifting Political Stances on Illegal Immigration

    History Lesson Explains Shifting Political Stances on Illegal Immigration

    Here are a couple of easy immigration questions—answerable with a simple “yes” or “no”—we might ask any American of any political stripe: Does everyone in the world have a right to live in the U.S.? Do the American people have a right, through their elected representatives, to decide who has the right to immigrate to their country and under what conditions?

    I believe that most Americans, even today’s open-borders people, would answer “no” to the first question and “yes” to the second. READ MORE...

  • Another Plea For Mike Lee

    Another Plea For Mike Lee

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had another health scare recently. After surgery and treatment, she has apparently been given a clean bill of health.

    However, this latest scare has once again prompted many to speculate just when Ginsburg will decide to hang it up, or that her failing health might decide.

    This will mean that Trump will get a third bite at the supreme Court apple.

    Many thought that the Kavanaugh confirmation would flip the court from progressive to constitutionalist, but that may not end up being the case. This one, however, could put the final nail in the coffin of leftist court activism. READ MORE...

  • Majority of Americans Say Abortion Should Be Restricted, New Poll Finds

    Majority of Americans Say Abortion Should Be Restricted, New Poll Finds

    A poll released Tuesday just ahead of the 46th March for Life demonstration in Washington, D.C, shows the majority of Americans support tighter restrictions on abortion, and would even like to see the landmark Roe v. Wade decision “reinterpreted” to allow more restrictions.

    The annual survey conducted by Marist in partnership with the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization, reveals that three-quarters of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion abroad, even though 55 percent of Americans polled identify as pro-choice. READ MORE...

  • Rocket Failure Dooms Iran Satellite Launch

    Rocket Failure Dooms Iran Satellite Launch

    (AP) — TEHRAN, Iran — Iran on Tuesday conducted one of at least two satellite launches it plans despite criticism from the United States, but the satellite failed to reach orbit, an official said.

    The rocket carrying the Payam satellite failed to reach the “necessary speed” in the third stage of its launch, Telecommunications Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi told Iranian state television.

    Jahromi said the rocket had successfully passed its first and second stages before developing problems in the third. He did not elaborate on what caused the rocket failure, but promised that Iranian scientists would continue their work. READ MORE...

  • Forget Islamic Jihad, Democrats Ready Hearings On "Rightwing Extremism"

    Forget Islamic Jihad, Democrats Ready Hearings On “Rightwing Extremism”

    Yes, forget Islamic jihadist, ANTIFA fascists and the other Socialist and Communist factions in our society who attack the foundations and laws of our republic.  Now that Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives, “rightwing extremism” is going to be at the forefront of hearings this year.

    Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) is now in charge of the House Homeland Security Committee and as such, he plans to act, but his target is “rightwing extremists.”

    While some of the hearings will feature white supremacist groups, keep in mind how this corrupt government has targeted a plethora of people on the so-called “right” as extremists and a threat to the country.  I’ll remind you of that in a moment. READ MORE...

  • IRS Recalling 46,000 Workers To Handle Tax Returns

    IRS Recalling 46,000 Workers To Handle Tax Returns

    (AP) — WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is recalling about 46,000 of its employees furloughed by the government shutdown — nearly 60 percent of its workforce — to handle tax returns and pay out refunds. The employees won’t be paid during the shutdown.

    With the official start of the tax filing season coming Jan. 28, the Trump administration has promised that taxpayers owed refunds will be paid on time, despite the disruption in government services caused by the partial shutdown now in its fourth week. READ MORE...

    The Shutdown Shows How Unnecessary Much of Government Is

    This government shutdown is now longer than any in history.
    The media keep using the word “crisis.”

    “Shutdown sows chaos, confusion and anxiety!” says The Washington Post. “Pain spreads widely.”

     The New York Times headlined, it’s all “just too much!”

    But wait. Looking around America, I see people going about their business—families eating in restaurants, employees going to work, children playing in playgrounds, etc. I have to ask: Where’s the crisis?

    Pundits talk as if government is the most important part of America, but it isn’t. READ MORE...

    Pelosi Tries To Shut Down Trump, Delay State Of Union

    Likely mindful of the optics of President Trump criticizing Democrats for refusing to fund border security, while said Democrats are sitting before him in a staged Stage of the Union event, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday “took the extraordinary step” of urging him to delay his speech until a later date.

    Or just print up the speech and send it over to Congress.

    It was Fox that noted the demand from Pelosi was “extraordinary,” as Trump already is scheduled to deliver his annual address to a joint session of Congress on Jan. 29. READ MORE...

  • The Mud on Gillette’s Face

    The Mud on Gillette’s Face

    Gillette, the 118-year-old shaving company, has some mud on its face. (Or maybe that’s shaving cream.) The company just released a controversial commercial as part of a new campaign urging customers to aspire to more than just “the best (shave) a man can get.” Now, they’re supposed to become “The Best a Man Can Be.” What that means, of course, is that men should embrace the spirit of #MeToo, and learn how to support women and girls.

    On a level of corporate strategy, this might just be an effort to compensate for the fact that Gillette still advertises on Fox News, even as many other companies have abandoned the right-wing network. They may have overshot though, because the new ad provoked so much anger that some have called for a boycott of Gillette products. READ MORE...
