    Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during President Obama's tenure, went on the Kelly File last night to talk about the possible manipulation of ISIS intelligence. He said the investigation should "start at the top. Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House." "[M]any of them have been deployed for many years in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere... so I think that the focus of really this investigation, they'll find whoever they're going to find and some of the tactical issues at central command, but the focus of this investigation ought to...

    Church ^ | 11/18/2015 | Michael Hichborn
    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    If people fail to understand the concept of Big Brother Government and the Welfare State, forgetting patriotism, cultural heritage, and history, all freedoms will vanish. The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on...

    One day after the Islamic State group killed or injured about 500 people in a series of attacks in Paris, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., linked climate change to the spread of terrorist groups overseas. At the second Democratic presidential debate, held Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, Sanders was asked whether he stood by his previous claims that climate change was the No. 1 threat to national security. He said he did."Climate change is directly related to the rise of global terrorism," Sanders said, adding that it would cause nations to start "struggling over limited amounts of water, limited amounts...

Some of the claims in the debate Saturday night and how they compare with the facts: CLINTON: "Since we last debated in Las Vegas, nearly 3,000 people have been killed by guns. Two hundred children have been killed. This is an emergency." She said that in the same period there have been 21 mass shootings, "including one last weekend in Des Moines where three were murdered."

    Global warming advocates are calling for the prosecution of groups who disagree with them, and New York State has taken it a step further by investigating Exxon Mobil for refusing to play ball with the popular scientific theory. But 68% of Likely U.S. Voters oppose the government investigating and prosecuting scientists and others including major corporations who question global warming. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 17% favor such prosecutions. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Just over one-in-four Democrats (27%), however, favor prosecuting those who don’t agree with global warming....

    It all goes downhill after 30 — at least when it comes to happiness. “Adults over 30 are less happy than their predecessors,” concludes a study published online Thursday in the journal Social Psychology and Personality Science, which examined happiness data from more than 50,000 adults, gleaned from the General Social Survey, carried out by NORC at the University of Chicago, a nonpartisan, independent research organization, which has collected information about American adults since 1972. From 2010 to 2014, adults over 30 had an average happiness score of just 2.18, compared with 2.24 a decade ago. That’s significant considering happiness...

    Senator Ted Cruz spoke out Wednesday against horrific forced abortions in China via its "totalitarian" one-child policy. In a speech on the Senate floor, he proposed "shaming" the one-party communist state by renaming the street on which the Chinese embassy is located after an imprisoned political dissident and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. During his remarks, Cruz called out Senator Dianne Feinsteins's objection to the passage of a resolution towards this end.Cruz began with China's one-child policy and forced abortions. He recalled the story of Feng Jianmei, who was abducted from her apartment in June of 2012 after her husband...
  • Why all the Confiscation talk from the Democratic National Socialist Party?

    In days of yore the Lie was 'No one is talking about Confiscation', but something has changed as of late. Such talk is now common amongst the national Socialist elite despite the lack of a shooting being prevalent in the media. It is axiomatic that one does not call for confiscation until its foundational steps are in place: Intergalactic Background Checks and Registration. The reason should be clear to everyone, people need to be fooled into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won't lead to confiscation. This was the case in the UK for example, were the...

    It's no secret that many U.S. environmental groups have become more strident and ideological during the Obama residency. But you may be surprised just how extreme they have become. In early October, a national network of environmental groups - called Stop the Frack Attack (STFA) - held a summit in Colorado to discuss their campaign strategies. The STFA alliance is led by Earthworks and includes other well-known national activist groups, such as the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council and Food & Water Watch.

    The fallacy that President Obama is a Muslim has tripped up many a politician, said NPRs Jessica Taylor hopefully on Friday, and on Thursday night, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump was its latest victim. Trumps presumed faux pas was his failure to correct a questioner who asserted that Barack Obama was a Muslim. Taylors real error as a reporter, like that of all her mainstream colleagues, was to dismiss the questioners assertion as a fallacy without providing any evidence to the contrary. Strange but true, reporters pride themselves on knowing nothing about Obamas roots. Last month, for instance, Catherine Thompson...

He does not need a consultant to tell him to be more genuine. 2) He is telling many Democrats what they want to hear. Forgive me for saying it, but this is not your dad's or grandpa's Democratic Party. Hard to think that JFK, Humphrey, or Scoop Jackson would be cheering at a Sanders rally.

    Megan Barry has been elected mayor in Nashvilles runoff election. Barry called the night historic. This one is going down in the history books, she said. This one is all about the fact that today, you went to the polls and you elected the first woman mayor. As Barrys victory speech went on, the crowd began chanting her name. Tomorrow our real work begins, she said.

    Sunday at the Hilton in Rosemont, IL, Nation of Islams Louis Farrakhan blamed the United States for ISIS and al Qaeda, calling them illegitimate children of U.S. foreign policy. Farrakhan said, Some of you are afraid of the Sharia. And the enemy is looking for a moderate MuslimNo. You either are a Muslim or youre not. There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. He continued, ISIS and al Qaeda are the illegitimate children of U.S. foreign policy. Osama bin Laden is a good man. When Russia moved into Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden and the mujaheddin went to fight...

    While not mentioning President Obama by name, the official newspaper of the Workers World Party squarely blamed the U.S.-led intervention in Libya and what it calls subversion in Syria for the illegal immigrant crisis currently facing Europe. What drove this crisis to unprecedented heights was NATOs bombing, invasion and subversion of Libya and Syria, starting in 2011, stated the Workers World Weekly newspaper in an editorial. The Workers World Party is a Marxist-Leninist communist party in the United States.The rhetoric on the immigration issue in Europe is a departure from the standard leftist claim that so-called global warming is the...

    Powerful and well funded, 1199 SEIU has unprecedented reach into city and state government. ... Medicaid is one of the primary sources of funding for the hospitals employing workers from 1199 SEIU, the powerful hospital and nursing-home employees union. ... The unions clout can be assessed by several measures: the sheer size of its membership, its spending on campaigns and lobbying, and the depth and breadth of its connections with New Yorks ruling elite. With well over 300,000 members in Massachusetts, Maryland, Florida, Washington, D.C., and New York (where over half of that total resides), 1199SEIU is the largest union...

    Alan Colmes Talks to John Bachtell: Alan talks to National Chair of Communist Party USA John Bachtell about American politics: In 1919, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was created in Chicago as a 5th Column by the U.S.S.R. in order to form fighting organizations for seizing control of the state, for the overthrow of government and the establishment of the workers dictatorship. With the eventual collapse of Communist Russia the CPUSA needed to form new alliances with groups also hell bent on destroying the United States from within. Luckily for them, they found the Democratic Party. During an interview with...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (D) has said that socialist policies characteristic of countries like Sweden should be implemented in the U.S. As a Swede, I would strongly advise against this. The worldwide socialist movement praises the Scandinavian countries for their high living standards and welfare. Easy to do for someone who has never lived in Sweden or read a book on Swedish history. First off: The success of Sweden predates the welfare state. In reality, the economy began to fall behind in the 1960s when the state rapidly expanded. Moreover, Sweden enjoyed the highest growth in the industrialized world between...
