    “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” These are the words of Rahm Emanuel, advisor and fixer in both the Clinton and Obama administrations, as well as the current Mayor of Chicago. His words are also an important part of the playbook of the left, which takes every advantage of natural or man-made catastrophes to advance their agenda. All extreme weather events are said to be evidence of global warming or climate change, and the only way to prevent...

  • The SPLC's Scandalous History on Race

    Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a civil rights watchdog that has devolved into a far-left smear factory, fired its co-founder, Morris Dees, and announced a workplace culture investigation. This drastic action highlighted the organization's scandalous history on race. Despite its fervent battle for civil rights, the SPLC has long been criticized for not elevating black employees into leadership, and complaints about this issue loomed large in the Dees firing. Glen Allen, a Baltimore lawyer who sued the SPLC last year for defaming him and destroying his career, predicted that the workplace investigation "will find what many of...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Democratic Congress members reintroduced the Ammunition Background Check Act on Wednesday, legislation that would require people to undergo an instant, universal background check through the federal NICS databaseeverytime they purchase gun ammunition. The lead sponsors of the bill are Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.). The proposal is known as 'Jaime's Law," in honor of Jaime Guttenberg, one of the 17 victims of the shooting at the Marjory Stonemen Douglas High School in February 2018. "Ammunition sales should be subject to the same legal requirements that should govern firearm sales: universal background checks," said...
  • This is CNN? Primetime shows filled with liberal opinion, not straight news as network claims

    CNN touts its primetime lineup as being straight, just-the-facts news, but anyone tuning in to the network’s evening programming can expect a heavy dose of liberal opinion, as “Anderson Cooper 360,” “CNN Tonight” and “Cuomo Prime Time” don't always align with founder Ted Turner's bare bones, objective approach to journalism. "Anderson Cooper is a mix of news and opinion, but Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo are obviously heavy on opinion and use the news as a launching pad for those opinions," Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson told Fox News. "There's nothing inherently wrong with that, so long as they...

    When NPR interviewed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in February about her Green New Deal, she said that her goal was bigger than just passing some new laws. "What I hope we're able to do is rediscover the power of public imagination," she said. Well, we're unleashing our imagination and exploring a dream, a possible future in which we're bringing global warming to a halt. It's a world in which greenhouse emissions have ended. So — what does this world look like? Mass Electrification (Batteries Hold The Power) (Editor's note: Each story has two sections, the first reflecting the present and the...

    David Horowitz has always been a writer whose work I've appreciated since his compelling political biography, Radical Son, which related the author's break from his communist upbringing after Black Panther associates murdered his bookkeeper friend Betty Van Patter. But brevity and crisp linkage of multiple intellectual threads were never characteristic of Horowitz's brilliant, often voluminous, exposés of leftist thought and practice. By contrast, Dark Agenda is a concise, chilling book brimming with evidence that links numerous cultural depredations to one overriding theme: The left's attack on Christian America's founding in the name of "cultural Marxism." "Christian America" is the novel...

    As widely reported in the press and widely discussed on social media venues, a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey indicated that nearly two-thirds of registered voters believe that the Democratic Party supports socialism; further, that a whopping 56 percent of those aged 18-24 and 48 percent of those aged 25-34 favor a “mostly socialist” system. Now, for those who may be exclaiming that it’s time to put a fork in America “because we’re done,” the latter two stats are admittedly pretty worrisome, even if one factors in the unreliability of some polls due to selective sampling and subjective interpretation.

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) likened House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) efforts to investigate President Donald Trump and his 2016 campaign to that of former Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-WI), who sought out communist sympathizers in the federal government during his tenure in the U.S. Senate. Kevin McCarthy questioned Schiff’s motives, which go back before the investigation. “Well, remember what else we know about Adam Schiff. Before this investigation even began, he said he had proof and evidence,” McCarthy said. “Now, I’m not related to Joe McCarthy but Adam Schiff is...

    A group of conservative street artists hijacked a billboard in Hollywood on Friday morning and took aim at CNN, which so happened to be across the street. Known as The Faction, their latest project slammed CNN and its president Jeff Zucker for its coverage of this week’s summit in Hanoi, Vietnam between President Donald Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. The billboard, which referred to CNN as “Communist News Network,” dawned the phrase “Keep Korea divided” with an asterisk that read “because OrangeManBad.” It also featured an image of Jeff Zucker, whose title was “CEO, CNNPC,” a reference...

    According to a recently published investigative report, leftist interest groups are secretly playing a major role at many American Universities, often funded in part by mandatory student fees. According to a report by the Capital Research Center, “public interest research groups” are playing a silent yet major role at many major American universities. The report makes the case that these interest groups use universities and their students to advance a progressive partisan agenda. Public interest research groups often raise funds via dishonest or deceitful methods. For example, many groups are funded by mandatory student fees. According to the report, the...

    “I think it’s (Trump’s proposed border wall) a moral abomination…I think it’s like the Berlin Wall. I think it’s like any other wall designed to separate human beings and block out people who are running away from the humanitarian disasters. I just think it’s wrong.” (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Feb, 20.) Could the ironies be any richer? Could AOC’s “powers of reasoning” be showcased any more starkly? To wit: The Berlin Wall (which even die-hard leftists like AOC seem to recognize as a “moral abomination”) was designed to keep desperate suffering people from escaping en masse from what Ocasio-Coretz and Bernie Sanders...

    Following NBC’s hostile coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union address and fawning over a “strong” Democratic response from Stacey Abrams Tuesday night, the network decided to get reaction from the far left as it invited on socialist New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a softball chat about her radical views. The leftist lawmaker was treated to a gushing introduction from NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt: “Alexandria Oasio-Cortez was elected to the House from New York last November, just weeks after her 29th birthday. She’s a progressive Democrat, a favorite target of conservatives, and already so well known...

    The group and its origins sound innocuous enough. But the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) — a right-wing group founded 36 years ago — has deepened connections between America’s religious right and Russians even as the latter have been sanctioned by the United States, according to a ThinkProgress investigation. By networking with Russians, the HSLDA — now America’s largest right-wing homeschooling association — has provided the Kremlin with a new avenue of influence over some of the most conservative organizations in the United States. And while investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, intelligence organizations, and congressional committees have focused...

    The Horrible Things North Korean Soldiers Have To Go Through Life in North Korea is no walk in the park, but it’s an even more difficult situation when you’re in the military. Serving in the military is something that the majority of North Korean citizens have to do when they reach adulthood—regardless of their gender or occupation. Spending a decade of your life doing something that you don't want to do doesn’t sound good to begin with. North Koreans also have to deal with all of the terrible conditions that soldiers are forced to live through. They have to steal...

    Remember Hollywood’s old obsession with the “blacklisting” of alleged communists? Movie after movie captured that dark chapter in American history, each film wagging a cinematic finger at industry insiders who punished Communist sympathizers — or just folks suspected of harboring such thoughts. Think “The Front,” “The Majestic,” “Trumbo,” “Guilty by Suspicion” and “Good Night, and Good Luck.” That was then. Today, people who hold what the Hollywood elite consider untenable views — such as those who believe in protecting the U.S. border — are targeted, shamed and made to fear for their careers. It’s happening both inside Tinsel Town and...

    Rasputin, described as “The Holy Devil,” moved to St. Petersburg in 1906 and began to gain access to the royal family of Tsar Nicholas II. Posing as a mystic, Rasputin was known for strange prophecies, claims of superstitious healing powers, and sexual excesses. As the Tsar and his family came under Rasputin’s spell, the monarch’s credibility suffered, his authority was undermined, and public distrust spread. At this time, Tsar Nicholas escalated his father’s policy of restricting Jews and implementing a full anti-Jewish “pogrom” of cruel persecution. More then 2 millions Jews fled, many to the United States. It was a...

    Our young people are not the first Americans to admire tyrants and cutthroats. W.E.B. Du Bois, writing in the National Guardian in 1953, said, "Stalin was a great man; few other men of the 20th century approach his stature." Walter Duranty called Stalin "the greatest living statesman" and "a quiet, unobtrusive man." There was even leftist admiration for Hitler and fellow fascist Benito Mussolini. When Hitler came to power in January 1933, George Bernard Shaw described him as "a very remarkable man, a very able man." President Franklin Roosevelt called Mussolini "admirable," and he was "deeply impressed by what he...
