  • Social justice warriors demand ‘Muslim refugee for president’ after attending annual event

    The George Washington University art school recently co-hosted a three-day gathering to discuss how art can influence “social justice,” culminating with pleas for a “Muslim refugee” to serve as president. . . “Democracy is a beloved concept across the globe and in the United States, it is sacred. So much so that it generally goes unexamined as a practice,” a description for the workshop states. “It is a fundamentally exclusive process and therefore easily corruptible,” the summary then declares, asking, “How can artists, political leaders, community activists, and citizens respond with more inclusive models for decision making?”

    Sixteen states may be using balloting equipment from a company tied to the leftist billionaire.Concern is growing over revelations that voting machines in a significant number of states could be linked to a company tied directly to billionaire leftist George Soros and his personal quest to create a nationless, borderless global state. The U.K.-based Smartmatic company posted a flow-chart on its website that it had provided voting machines for 16 states, including important battleground states like Florida and Arizona. Smartmatic Chairman Mark Malloch-Brown is a former U.N. official and sits on the board of Soros’ Open Society Foundations. Since the...

One of the fighters, his face hidden behind a mask, looks at the camera and says "America, we will defeat you in Iraq, with Allah's help. You will leave again, defeated and humiliated, with your tail between your legs." Iraqi and Kurdish soldiers, with the backing of the US, are advancing on Mosul to take the city back from ISIS. The US has refrained from sending its own soldiers to battle ISIS on the ground....

    But there’s another reason Ryan is likely concerned about November.

It would be a crucial check on a Donald Trump administration. Ryan has every reason to believe that if elected, Trump will require significant reining in by the legislative branch. For one, he could revert back to the liberal positions he held before calling himself a Republican. More realistically, he could govern as a centrist, abandoning some of...

    Criminal laws and regulations in the United States have increased to absurd proportions in the past few decades, posing a growing threat to our constitutional liberties. There are nearly 5,000 criminal laws and an estimated 300,000 or more criminal regulations at the federal level alone. In fact, there are so many possible criminal offenses that Harvey Silverglate, a civil liberties attorney, contends the average American probably commits at least three felonies a day, most without knowing it. In April, the perils of overcriminalization were on full display when Brian Everidge traveled to Michigan with more than 10,000 bottles and cans,...

The CO-OP Consumer Protection Act (H.R.954), which passed last week on a 258-165 vote, would “amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to exempt from the individual mandate certain individuals who had coverage under a terminated qualified health plan funded by the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP) program.” Some of the failed non-profit CO-OPs - which American Action Forum president Douglas Holtz-Eakin called...

The theft raises the embarrassing prospect that for the second time in three years, an insider has managed to steal highly damaging secret information from the N.S.A. In 2013, Edward J. Snowden, who was also a contractor for the agency, took a vast trove of documents that were later passed to journalists, exposing N.S.A. surveillance programs...

The condemnation apparently refers to recently approved plans for 98 units to resettle evacuees from the soon-to-be-razed outpost of Amona, near Ofra...

    Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's poll numbers dropped dramatically in the Democratic stronghold of Washington, D.C., according to a Google Consumer Surveys poll published Thursday. Clinton still led Republican nominee Donald Trump by 6 points, at 38 to 32 percent, but her lead fell dramatically in a poll released in the first Thursday of September, where Clinton led by 25 points, earning 48 percent compared to 22 percent for Trump. The District of Columbia is ranked "safe Democrat" by the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, and statistics site 538, but recent poll numbers could change that determination. In every election...

    Hillary Clinton just can’t get her facts straight! The presidential candidate is in the crosshairs again, can reveal, because a new story that she’s shared on the campaign trail just isn’t adding up. Clinton went viral this week in a touching Humans of New York post about sexist bullying she allegedly experienced as a young would-be attorney. Fans quickly reposted the vision of a kinder, gentler candidate. But Radar can reveal that several aspects of her story don’t quite pass a basic fact check. First, Clinton said, “one of [the men] even said: ‘If you take my spot, I’ll...

    Vile racist hate group Black Lives Matter is at it again. After attacking everything from cafes where white people eat (aka "white spaces") to the Thanksgiving Day parade, the radical anti-American group was bound to target 9/11. And they did not disappoint. The media is frantically spinning this as a "commemoration" by Black Lives Matter. No sorry, media apologists, it's a protest. BLM borrowed the Muslim anti-Israel campus handbook of anti-Semitic hate groups like the Muslim Students' Association and Students for Justice in Palestine to set up "checkpoints" in D.C. protesting the supposed "harassment" faced by Muslim settlers and migrants...

    "Fifteen years ago, America suffered the worst terrorist attack in its history. Thousands of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and innocent American children were murdered by radical Islamic terrorists. Today, we mourn for all the lives lost. We mourn for all the children who had to grow up without a mom or dad, and for all the parents who've had to struggle on without their children. We will never forget. In that darkest hour, the entire world bore witness to the strength and courage of our mighty nation. Firefighters, police officers and port authority workers rushed into danger, into smoke, into fire...
