    In exchange for free mails, would you let your postman open your letters, read them, and insert ads related to their contents? This is a common analogy for Gmail’s model. The privacy implications of using Gmail actually go much farther than that, because Gmail is not only your postman (with Gmail), it also owns your car ( your web browser), your address book (with Search), your TV (with YouTube), it’s a great land owner (with AdSense)… And there are many reasons not to trust Google, especially with your privacy. Migrating away from any email service, like changing addresses in...
  • UNs refusal to back U.S. condemnation of Hamas terrorism is another reason why we should get out

    U.S. taxpayers pick up nearly a quarter of the United Nations budget each year but the world body is so anti-American despite our global leadership role critics have long wondered why we remain a member. Case in point: On Thursday UN members rejected a U.S. proposal to condemn Iran proxy Hamas for its serial acts of terrorism, mostly against Israel. If a majority of the UNs members hate anyone more than the U.S., its Israel. The resolution was about as straightforward as it gets. It would have condemned Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby...
  • The Only Good Republican Is A Dead Republican

    The death of President George H. W. Bush provided liberals and their Fredocon houseboys yet another opportunity to lament the fact that all Republicans arent dead. Their feigned amnesia about what libs were saying while Bush 41 was still in the arena, and their latest hack attempt to tsk tsk tsk tsk about how the Bad Orange Man isnt like [Insert Name of Dead Republican Here] serves to justify the prophylactic cynicism that we Normals should strive to cultivate. President Bush was an imperfect man and a frustration to hardcore conservatives like me, but he was also a WW II...

    GATEWAY PUNDIT ^ | 12/2/2018 | Jim Hoft
    The Fed has done all they can to derail Republican Presidents for the past half century. President George H. W. Bush blamed the Fed for his loss in 1992. George H. W. Bush believed balancing the budget was his top priority, but his efforts to do so were constantly hindered by his no new taxes pledge. He held conservative views on government spending and believed that issues like homelessness and crime were important, but that the government should not use more tax money to fix such issues. Bush agreed to a budget agreement in 1990 which looked to the long-run...

    The snow is falling lightly. My thoughts are racing darkly. Im feeling something foreign, something Ive never felt before. It takes me a moment to identify it. Im feeling sorry for the Clintons. In the 27 years Ive covered Bill and Hillary, Ive experienced a range of emotions. Theyve dazzled me and theyve disgusted me. But now theyre mystifying me. Im looking around Scotiabank Arena, the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and its a depressing sight. Its two-for-the-price-of-one in half the arena. The hockey rink is half curtained off, but even with that, organizers are scrambling at the last...

    If youre tempted to turn away from the torrent of squalid news that continues to flow out of Hollywood, resist the temptation. The more of these revolting exposes you read, the more clearly you will see the underlying monstrosity in Hollywood, as clearly as the hero of John Carpenters They Live sees aliens disguised as everyday people when he puts on the sunglasses. Former CBS chief Les Moonvess career had already ended in disgrace for repeated instances of alleged sexual harassment and assault uncovered last summer by The New Yorker. Yet until this week the board that fired him for...

    "Where's the outrage?" asked Bob Dole back during his hopeless presidential campaign against Bill Clinton. But few enough folks were outraged by Slick Willie's friskiness with both women and the truth that Clinton was easily re-elected. Back in the days when "everybody lied about sex" and Democrats were extolling the virtues of hypocrisy, nobody had much time for outrage; the old moral order was changing and iconoclasm ruled the world. Dole may as well have been spitting into the wind: Appearing at downtown performing arts center, where he stood before a giant mural depicting the glory days of the Lone...

    11:45 a.m. on Nov. 30, 2018 We understand theres considerable damage being reported at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Alaska, due to a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit this morning.

We are pausing arrivals and departures in and out of Anchorage during this time.

    Big League Politics ^ | Nov. 26, 2018 | Patrick Howley
    Special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller is accused of framing a man on gun charges a case that is officially under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). Writer Jerome Corsi, who rejected Muellers plea deal in the Russia collusion case but is still under Muellers microscope, actually knew about the case in question years ago, before the criminal investigation opened in Tennessee. Mueller as FBI director was accused of working with a blogger who wears a hammer and sickle Communist hat to build the law enforcement presence that led to the mans arrest on gun...

    Barbwire ^ | November 26, 2018 | Dr. Jerry Newcombe
    Glenn Beck has recently raved about a book on the faith of George Washington, helping to propel the book to #1 on Amazon for six days in a row. MediaMatters, which is funded by George Soros, accuses this book of being revisionist history. But just who is rewriting history? The book in question is near and dear to my heart, because I co-wrote it. The chief author of George Washingtons Sacred Fire is Dr. Peter Lillback, president of Westminster Theological Seminary, who researched the subject for some 20 years before we met. We began to collaborate in late 2004, and...

    It should tell us something about her home country that a mother is willing to travel 2,000 miles with her 4-month old son to come here. Should tell us something about our country that we only respond to this desperate need once she is at our border. So far, in this administration, that response has included taking kids from their parents, locking them up in cages, and now tear gassing them at the border. People are leaving violent countries where they fear for their lives. Without money, they are subsisting on hope for their kids, for themselves, that they can...
  • Costs of the Post-9/11 Wars Through FY2019: $5.9 Trillion Spent and Obligated

    Watson Institute, Brown University ^ | November 14, 2018 | Neta C. Crawford
    The United States has appropriated and is obligated to spend an estimated $5.9 trillion (in current dollars) on the war on terror through Fiscal Year 2019, including direct war and war-related spending and obligations for future spending on post- 9/11 war veterans.This number differs substantially from the Pentagons estimates of the costs of the post-9/11 wars because it includes not only war appropriations made to the Department of Defense spending in the war zones of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and in other places the government designates as sites of overseas contingency operations, but also includes spending across the...

    The United States has just endured the most expensive midterm elections in history. Most of us are tired of campaign commercials and are glad that they no longer run on television. But we fool ourselves if we think the commercials are really over or that the campaigning is limited to the two months leading up to election day. The commercials continue, if only in different forms. Political commercials have, somehow, taken over nearly every facet of our lives and every activity we experience. This infestation has happened so gradually that we barely notice how thorough the campaigning has become. We...

    If you want to gauge how rabidly secular the left has become, look no further than The Rachel Maddow Show Wednesday evening. MSNBCs flagship prime-time hour was guest-hosted by Joy Reid, who joined other hosts of color in housekeeping duties Thanksgiving week, filling in for their white host betters, most of whom were on vacation giving thanks, no doubt, that the help would do a serviceable job keeping their audiences enthused about the show trials beginning in the House of Representatives in January. And Joy Reid, at least, did not disappoint. She even managed to end the Thanksgiving Eve broadcast...

    Having served some time in non-elected office purgatory, Willard Mitt Romney, Republican of Michigan Massachusetts New Hampshire California Utah, the man who blew the 2012 presidential election against a very beatable Barack Hussein Obama, is back in action: made little secret that he intends to use his outsize profile as senator. Prior to the election, he backed an array of Republican candidates in races up and down the ballot. The question is which GOP candidates Romney's PAC will back -- besides Mitt. Although Trump flirted with Romney when he was shopping for a secretary of state, there is little love...

    In yet another shocking failure in a long line of interfaith outreach by Western governments since 9/11, The Daily Telegraph reports today that the American-born Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been recently promoting a program associated with the notorious Al-Manaar mosque not far from Kensington Palace. The mosque has produced as many as nineteen terrorists -- including "Jihadi John" and his Islamic State "Beatles" who tortured and beheaded Western captives in Syria. The duchess has helped raise more than $250,000 for the Hubb Community Kitchen operated out of the mosque by promoting a cookbook that royal press agents have...

    Donald Trump saved us from Hillary Clinton and the Leftist cabal in 2016. But they have a lot in store for us still. Like so many past victories won by the GOP and its supporters, a won battle is believed to be a won war. Its not. I saw the same thing happen in 1980 when Ronald Reagan wiped out the Democrats and again in 1984. It was an electoral landslide like no other. Lets also remember that Reagan was Governor of California and California voted for him in 1980 and 1984. Look at California today. If its one thing...
