  • Why Suburban Women Deserve The Truth Even If The Left Denies Them The Access

    This past week I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time finding myself in discussions about “suburban women” and 2020.My bride, a broadcaster I consult, angry feminists on Twitter, journalists from three separate but significant publications, and contributors to my show all somehow snagged me into giving opinions about the specific demographic.That surprised me somewhat.Surprised me on two levels. That it’s such an “urgent” discussion now.That I hadn’t looked at the data better before now. So I’ve done a lot more of the latter. Turns out it’s a somewhat fascinating demographic.Suburban women aren’t really considered suburban. Oh many of them are,...

    A recent business trip to the liberal-run capital city of Texas left me impressed with the food, music, and overall quirky “weirdness” that is Austin, but it also left me generally disenchanted at the difficulty its working citizens must have in enjoying ANY of it. Why? Just take a walk, anywhere, and you can’t miss them - sleeping in the streets, sitting on sidewalks and benches or wandering aimlessly about. Stop for a second and, like clockwork, one will probably approach you, begging for some “spare change” or “a couple bucks” to “get home” or “buy something to eat.” If...
  • Joe Biden’s Bet That 2016 Didn’t Change Everything

    PHILADELPHIA—If the new rules of politics post-2016 were to hold up, the official launch rally Joe Biden held here on Saturday would mean that he is in trouble: The crowd wasn’t huge, was largely white and older, and, for the most part, only really got into it when he mentioned Barack Obama or Donald Trump. Yet Biden’s high-and-getting-higher poll numbers, the early fundraising success that has surprised even his own aides, and the enthusiastic responses I heard from supporters who came out on a hot afternoon to see him don’t show a candidate in much trouble at all. Biden’s campaign...

    On the first day, God created the dog and said: "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?" And God said that it was good. On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey...

    President Trump says Joe Biden should be investigated over allegations that his son Hunter Biden pocketed millions from the Chinese government in a shady business deal. “One-hundred percent. It’s a disgrace. And then he says China’s not a competitor of ours. China is a massive competitor of ours. They want to take over the world,” the president told Steve Hilton of Fox News Channel’s “The Next Revolution.”

    The latest tactic for the elite to shaft Normal Americans is the obnoxious “adversity score” that the academifascists who run the SATs plan to introduce as a way to give a fig leaf of objectivity and fairness to their screwing over of your kids in favor of the kids of people they prefer. Do you think there is any chance, and chance at all, that these secret numbers based upon secret factors and kept secret from you will make it more likely for your children to get into one of the elite schools?Yeah, right.If only someone had predicted this kind of social...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Hundreds of demonstrators marched to the Alabama Capitol on Sunday to protest the state's newly approved abortion ban, chanting "my body, my choice!" and "vote them out!" The demonstration came days after Gov. Kay Ivey signed the most stringent abortion law in the nation— making performing an abortion a felony in nearly all cases unless necessary for the mother's health. The law provides no exception for rape and incest. "Banning abortion does not stop abortion. It stops safe abortion," said Staci Fox, CEO and president of Planned Parenthood Southeast, addressing the cheering crowd outside the Alabama Capitol....

    The typical characterization of Niccolo’ Machiavelli (1469 – 1527) today is that of a cold advocate of raw force from which his devious students, petty princes in small kingdoms, kept themselves in power through treachery and fear. These are not the positive lessons that carried over from the Renaissance and down through The Enlightenment to the American Revolution. If anything, The Prince illustrated the consequences of lost liberty, the final corruption of a people too ignorant or frightened to preserve themselves. Alternatively, in Discourses on Livy, Machiavelli studied the long-lived Roman Republic and how the people kept their freedom for...

    Adva Biton, the mother of Hilda Adelle, who was murdered in a stone-throwing attack in Samaria, gave birth Sunday to a seventh child. Following the birth, Biton wrote, "By the grace of God, thanks to Rabbi Meir Baal Haness, I gave birth to our seventh daughter on the same date of her sister, Adele, of blessed memory! A mixture of emotions! Only happy occasions!" Adelle was the family's fourth child. After her injury, Adva Biton gave birth to the family's first boy in 2014, and to another son in 2016. The new baby is Adelle's first younger sister. In 2013,...

    Riyad Malki, the Palestinian Authority (PA) “foreign minister”, on Wednesday submitted a request to The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) for legal action against the US over the relocation of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Ramallah claims the US relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem was “in clear violation of international law”, reported the Turkish Anadolu news agency. “One year after the Trump administration carried out its provocative and illegal action, the State of Palestine continues to seek justice and accountability through the tools and mechanisms available to law-abiding and respecting states within the international system,”...

    Sunday on ABC's "This Week" roundtable, former N.J. Gov. Chris Christie rejoiced when he saw Democratic panelists Yvette Simpson and Heidi Heitkamp squabbling, leaning back from the table and quipping: "This is what Donald Trump – I’m telling you, if he’s watching this, what he’s doing, leaning back like I am and laughing." "Let me tell you, let’s have the next 12 months be Heidi and Yvette arguing with each other. Because this is what they want for the Democratic Party," he said.

    Fox News Dagen McDowell blew up on fellow network contributor Juan Williams this Friday after Williams tried to dismiss Attorney General Bill Barr’s otherwise valid and arguably necessary investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion investigation. The fiery outburst occurred during a discussion on FNC’s “The Five” about Barr’s claim that the Democrats are purposefully trying to discredit him and his investigation because they fear what the investigation might ultimately uncover about the Obama administration. “What’s going on is an investigation of the investigators as punishment coming from an administration that is overwhelmingly political,” Williams said in defense of...
