    Climate isn’t the same as weather — unless, of course, weather happens to be politically useful. In that case, weather portends climate apocalypse. READ MORE...

  • Impeach Trump or Go Home, Liberals

    When House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler and Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the United States had been plunged into a “constitutional crisis,” a large swath of the media took to plying this fantasy for them. READ MORE...

  • Liberals Were Very Wrong About Tax Cuts. Again.

    For those of you who survived the Great GOP Tax Cut Massacre, things are finally looking up. The unemployment rate fell to 3.6% last month, the lowest level since 1969. We’ve now experienced over a full year of unemployment at 4% or lower. The economy beat projections, adding another 263,000 jobs in April. Wages are rising. READ MORE...

  • The Real Reason Democrats Hate William Barr

    The Real Reason Democrats Hate William Barr

    On the day of Attorney General William Barr’s testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, there was, as always, a selective leak dropped into the fray. With bated breath, we learned special counsel Robert Mueller had sent the attorney general a sternly worded letter grousing that Barr’s four-page March 24 explanation of the core conclusions of the Mueller report “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the Mueller’s “work and conclusions.” READ MORE...

    After the horrific mass murder of 50 Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, New Zealand, there was widespread coverage and a torrent of mainstream news networks contemplating the threat of white supremacy. READ MORE...

    Liberals Are Using Rep. Ilhan Omar as an Excuse to Chill Speech

    Democrats have spent the past two-plus years accusing the president of the United States and his allies of seditiously conspiring with our enemies to destroy “democracy.” READ MORE...

    Zuckerberg’s Plan for the Internet Would Be a Disaster for Free Expression

    In a recent op-ed, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg implored
    the state to get more involved in governing the internet. “Every day, we
    make decisions about what speech is harmful, what constitutes political
    advertising, and how to prevent sophisticated cyberattacks,” he said.
    “These are important for keeping our community safe. But if we were
    starting from scratch, we wouldn’t ask companies to make these judgments
    alone.” READ MORE...

    The Media Have Done Tremendous Damage to the Country and Themselves

    For the past two years, a large swath of the media engaged in a mass act of self-deception and partisan group think. Perhaps it was Watergate envy, or bitterness over Donald Trump’s victory, or antagonism toward Republicans in general—or, most likely, a little bit of all the above. READ MORE...

  • Pelosi's Shameful Decision to Place Rep. Omar on Foreign Affairs Committee

    Pelosi’s Shameful Decision to Place Rep. Omar on Foreign Affairs Committee

    Rep. Ilhan Omar argues that American “democracy is built on debate,” tweeting, “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.” I’m sure no decent person disagrees with her comment. Also, every sane person understands this is merely a deflection from Omar’s many anti-Semitic comments.

    No one asked her—or anyone else—to pledge allegiance to a foreign nation. It’s her belief that supporting the Jewish state, a longtime ideological and geopolitical ally of the United States, is an act of dual loyalty—either by Jews or by others who, as Omar might say, have been “hypnotized” to do “evil.”

  • GOP Pounces by Allowing Democrats to Vote on Their Own Idea

    GOP Pounces by Allowing Democrats to Vote on Their Own Idea

    “The Green New Deal is the only way to save the earth from utter extinction. If you keep standing in the way, troglodytes, we are doomed.”

    “OK, Democrats, let’s vote on your nonbinding resolution.”

    “Why are you sabotaging our legislation?!”

    If you think this is an exaggeration of the illogical position of Democrats and their Green New Deal, I give you Sen. Ed Markey. D-Mass.

    As soon as next week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will seize on actual liberal positions to paint Democrats as radicals. He’s going to put the Green New Deal up for a vote. Or, here’s how The Associated Press put it: “McConnell wields Green New Deal as bludgeon against Dems.”

  • Why Liberals Can't Talk Honestly About Abortion

    Why Liberals Can’t Talk Honestly About Abortion

    Democrats will protect American children from the evils of trans fats and gay conversion therapy, but not from doctors who will kill them through negligent homicide in the first few hours of their lives.

    This is the ugly reality of the contemporary abortion debate. It’s why most advocates will do about anything to avoid describing the unpleasant realities and consequences of their increasingly radical position.

    This week, Senate Democrats blocked Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse’s effort for unanimous consent on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

    It must be stressed that this bill isn’t technically about abortion; rather, it’s about protecting babies who survive the procedure.

  • First on Nancy Pelosi's Agenda: Attacking Free Expression

    First on Nancy Pelosi’s Agenda: Attacking Free Expression

    I have zero interest in financially supporting any politician, much less ones I find morally unpalatable. Yet Democrats want to force me—and every other American taxpayer—to contribute, as a matter of public policy, to the campaigns of candidates we disagree with.

    Believe it or not, this might be an even more dangerous assault on free expression than unpleasant tweets directed at CNN anchors.

    One of Nancy Pelosi’s first projects as the new speaker of the House will be passing a government overhaul of campaign finance and ethics rules that would, among other things, “expand voting rights.” One of the new bills—specifics are still cloudy—reportedly would allocate a pool of taxpayer money to match small-dollar donations 6-to-1, as a way of encouraging “grassroots campaigning,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

  • There Is No 'Surge' in Right-Wing Violence

    There Is No ‘Surge’ in Right-Wing Violence

    A Washington Post “analysis” of domestic terrorism argues that attacks from white supremacists and other “far-right attackers” have been on the rise since Barack Obama’s presidency and “surged since President Trump took office.”

    It’s a familiar storyline meant to assure liberals that yes, Trump-motivated right-wing terrorists are running wild. There are, however, a few problems with this proposition.

    For one thing, even if we accept the numbers the Post offers, the use of the word “surge”—meaning a sudden, powerful forward or upward movement—strains credibility. There’s no evidence of a “surge,” either in historical context or as a matter of ideological preference.

  • She Opposes Israel at Every Turn. Now, She's Going to Congress.

    She Opposes Israel at Every Turn. Now, She’s Going to Congress.

    Ilhan Omar, one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, is a new kind of politician. She’s telegenic, ideologically progressive, widely celebrated by a media that’s obsessed with identity politics.

    She’s the kind of politician who can openly side with Hamas against Israel or spread “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”-style conspiracies on Twitter, claiming that Jews possess the supernatural ability to hypnotize the world as they unfurl their “evil.”

    It’s not surprising, then, that Omar also supports the “boycott, divestment, and sanctions” movement. In a statement to the website Muslim Girl, someone on Omar’s staff explained that yes, “Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people’s right to support it isn’t criminalized.
