• Unmoved by Terror Attack, Congress Is Doing Nothing to Scrap the Diversity Visa Lottery

    Unmoved by Terror Attack, Congress Is Doing Nothing to Scrap the Diversity Visa Lottery

    Capitol Hill’s national security priorities are screwier than a Six Flags roller coaster.

    Instead of immediately shutting down one of America’s stupidest visa programs, which helped bring us yet another murder-minded jihadist this week, bipartisan Beltway politicians are pushing to preserve and expand the illegal immigration pipeline.

    Republicans and Democrats in Congress want a “fix” for the Obama administration’s executive amnesty covering nearly 700,000 illegal immigrants—and they want it pronto. READ MORE...

  • Attempted New York Bombing Calls for Renewed Vigilance Against Homegrown Terrorism

    Attempted New York Bombing Calls for Renewed Vigilance Against Homegrown Terrorism

    The attempted suicide bombing by Akayed Ullah in New York on Monday is the 101st Islamist plot or attack against the U.S. homeland since 9/11.

    While the device did not succeed in causing the destruction that Ullah wished, the U.S. must redouble its commitment to stopping terrorists before they strike.

    Ullah came to the U.S. from Bangladesh in 2011 on a family-based green card. According to authorities, he began radicalizing in 2014 and began researching bomb-making in the past year. Ullah watched various pro-Islamic State materials during this time. READ MORE...

    Making Mistakes Doesn’t Earn Back Trust

    ‘The press does not understand that there is a credibility crisis on two sides here — for the president and for us.’

    Federalist senior writer Mary Katharine Ham slammed members of the media for repeatedly reporting false information about the ongoing investigation into whether Trump or his associates colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

    “The press does not understand that there is a credibility crisis on two sides here — for the president and for us,” Ham said Monday during a segment on CNN’s “The Lead With Jake Tapper.” READ MORE...

    In Cold War Flashback, Russia Designates VOA, Radio Free Europe as Foreign Agents

    The Russian Duma is engaging in tit-for-tat with the U.S. government by designating American government-funded broadcasters Voice of America, Radio Free Europe, and Radio Liberty as foreign agents.

    In late November, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into law a measure rushed through the Duma to push back against the United States. As a result, reporters working for VOA and RFE/RL may be restricted from attending Duma deliberations and other official functions.

    Now in Russia, anyone who defies the Kremlin may find themselves branded a foreign agent.  But it’s no coincidence that the Duma’s decision on VOA and RFE/RL comes soon after the U.S. Justice Department in September demanded that the Russian cable-television entity RT (formerly known as Russia Television) register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

  • Trump Drags Herring Past Democrats, Leads Them Off Alabama Race

    Trump Drags Herring Past Democrats, Leads Them Off Alabama Race

    President Trump doesn’t have the best track record with women. His opponents, especially in the media, don’t have the best track record covering the president and his statements in a level-headed or particularly fair manner. The president knows both of these things, which made his Tuesday tweet on the morning of the Alabama special election particularly brilliant.

    Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED! READ MORE...

  • How the Left Became So Intolerant

    How the Left Became So Intolerant

    When most people think of intolerance, they imagine a racist taunting a black person. Or they think of the white supremacist who killed a demonstrator in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    It seldom occurs to them that intolerance comes in all political shapes and sizes.

    A protester storming a stage and refusing to let someone speak is intolerant. So, too, are campus speech codes that restrict freedom of expression. A city official threatening to fine a pastor for declining to marry a gay couple is every bit as intolerant as a right-winger wanting to punish gays with sodomy laws. READ MORE...
