    Was Bomb Mailer Cesar Sayoc A Leftist Operative?

    Projection – the act of accusing an adversary of engaging in untoward behavior in which one is actually engaging themselves – has been rampant in recent months on the part of leftist operatives. While these have engaged in incivility, purveyed incendiary rhetoric, displayed fascistic tendencies and called for violence against their political opponents, they have repeatedly accused President Donald Trump, his surrogates and supporters of the very same actions.

    Projection has been a go-to tactic of leftists for decades, but its use has increased exponentially in recent months, probably due to the left’s almost palpable desperation. READ MORE...

  • Here’s Why Trump’s Constant Criticism of the Media Resonates With Americans

    Here’s Why Trump’s Constant Criticism of the Media Resonates With Americans

    Americans aren’t fans of their media.

    A recent poll shows that while many Americans find President Donald Trump divisive, even more find the media to be divisive.

    A Politico/Morning Consult poll showed that 56 percent of Americans think Trump has done more to divide the country, while 64 percent of Americans think the media has done more.

    Only 17 percent of respondents said that they thought the national media has done more to unite the country.

    There were sharp partisan divisions over whether Trump has worked to unite or divide the country, but Americans across the political spectrum gave the media low marks. READ MORE...

  • What The Framers Really Said About The Purpose Of Amendments To Our Constitution

    What The Framers Really Said About The Purpose Of Amendments To Our Constitution

    One of the silliest of the many unsupported claims made by those lobbying for an Article V convention is that our Framers said that when the federal government violates the Constitution, the remedy is to amend the Constitution.1

    It shouldn’t be necessary to point out that their claim makes as much sense as saying that since people violate the Ten Commandments, God should amend the Ten Commandments.2

    And since none of our Framers said such a silly thing, the convention lobby can’t produce a quote where it was said. READ MORE...

    If The Synagogue Shooter Were Muslim, The Media Would Be Defending Him

    Two types of people plot attacks against Jewish synagogues and community centers: Nazis and Muslims.

    In 1999, Buford O. Furrow, a white supremacist, opened fire at a Jewish Community Center in the Los Angeles area. He wounded three little boys, their teenage female counselor and an elderly female receptionist. He told the FBI that he wanted this to be “a wake-up call to America to kill Jews.”

    While Furrow was carrying out his attack, President William Jefferson Clinton was in the White House. READ MORE...

    Here Are the 3 Times in Past Century That President’s Party Gained Seats in Midterms

    Government watchdog Judicial Watch is suing the State Department to find out why Hillary Clinton was allowed to keep her security clearance after the FBI determined she had mishandled classified information.

    The lawsuit also demands records related to the security clearances of Clinton associates Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan and Phillipe Reines.

    Judicial Watch initially asked for the information under the Freedom of Information Act in August, just days before the government announced Clinton’s clearance had been revoked. READ MORE...

    Here Are the 3 Times in Past Century That President’s Party Gained Seats in Midterms

    History is not on any president’s side in a midterm election. But there are three occasions since 1934 when a president’s party actually gained seats.

    Since 1862, the president’s party on average loses 32 House seats and more than two Senate seats in a midterm election. And in the 47 midterms since 1826, the president’s party lost seats in 41 of them, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    Here’s a look at the three notable exceptions.

    1. FDR’s Party in 1934

    President Herbert Hoover, a Republican, presided over the Great Depression spurred by the 1929 stock market crash. In 1932, Franklin D. Roosevelt defeated Hoover in a landslide and went on to push his New Deal legislation. READ MORE...

  • Fake News Threatens Our Nation

    Fake News Threatens Our Nation

    President Donald Trump was right to tweet out: “There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true enemy of the people, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news honestly and fairly. That will do much to put out the flame…”

    He’s right.

    I open to the opinion section of The Washington Post and find the following headlines:

    “Trump has stoked the fears of the Bowerses (the Pittsburgh synagogue murderer) among us.” READ MORE...
