    “It is surely unfair on women who have to compete against people who, biologically, are still men,” tennis legend Martina Navratilova recently proclaimed. “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.” Activists blasted Navratilova as “transphobic” and years after she identified as a lesbian the tennis star was booted from the board of a LBGT nonprofit.  Long before any of that happened, women who were biologically still men were competing against other women.  The Union...
  • Criminalizing Free Speech

    Political correctness regarding free speech has gone too far. At first it took the form of just criticism. Feminists and diversity proponents lectured everyone on how they should speak. It was prevalent at universities, and spread next to corporations and K-12 education. Then it turned into civil infractions. Businesses that refused to accommodate same-sex marriage, based on their sincerely held religious beliefs, were held to have violated the law. After that, big tech took to censoring offenders. Twitter, Facebook and YouTube in particular banned those whose speech it disliked. Now, it’s becoming a crime in civilized countries to say politically...

    As of the penning of this editorial President Donald J. Trump has scored his most significant victory while in office.His claim that neither he nor his campaign had any illicit conspiracy to sway the election by colluding with foreign agents from the Russian government and cheat their way into office in 2016 has been fully substantiated.We can know this using deductive reasoning from the initial statements asserted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller upon his transmission of his final findings to the Department of Justice. He affirmed that no further criminal indictments would be filed by his office in the matter. In...

    After nearly two years of questions, breathless media reports, and seemingly endless investigations, the primary findings of the Special Counsel’s report have finally been released, and the result couldn’t be worse for Democrats: The Trump campaign did not collude with foreign agents in the 2016 election.According to a four-page letter issued by Attorney General William Barr, “The report … explains that a primary consideration for the Special Counsel’s investigation was whether any Americans – including individuals associated with the Trump campaign – joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election, which would be a federal crime. The Special Counsel’s investigation...

    In a Washington Examiner column titled “Race should matter when it comes to crime and punishment, even for conservatives,” R Street Institute’s Emily Mooney and Arthur Rizer take issue with my March 11 Townhall column on race, crime, and punishment that, to them, “seemingly mocked attempts to make racial equality under the law an important part of discussions about criminal justice policy.”“According to Morefield, liberal charges that Paul Manafort’s recent sentence was comparatively easier than those given to individuals of different racial backgrounds is proof that liberals only care about race, not equal justice,” wrote Mooney and Rizer.To be clear, the concept...

    The Mueller report dropped and the liberal elite experienced the kind of intense, agonizing disappointment usually reserved for a Fredocon’s bride on her wedding night.It’s important to remember exactly what nonsense the elite liars were trying to stuff down our throats, because in the aftermath of their humiliation they are busy trying to hide it via their goalpost-shifting three card monte act. Behold their original assertion:Donald Trump was a willing agent of Vladimir Putin actively acting in concert with Russia to betray the United States and steal the election!Wow. Those of us who are neither shameless liars nor blithering idiots...

    City First Lady Chirlane ­McCray will appear before the City Council Tuesday to ­explain what exactly her mental-health project, ThriveNYC, has achieved before giving her $250 million a year for the next four years. New Yorkers can be forgiven for failing to notice positive results, what with the ever-growing ranks of homeless mentally ill in our streets and subways (and prisons). As these pages have repeatedly argued, ThriveNYC hasn’t been focused on helping the most seriously mentally ill. Here, then, are 10 questions council members should ask the first lady to get to the root of that problem. **SNIP** Two:...

    A bipartisan deal to bring millions of immigrants out of the shadows, and pay for a secure border. Americans are frustrated by the inaction of their federal government on comprehensive immigration reform and border security. So are we. We both represent districts on Long Island, and we have both worked on immigration-related issues for over 25 years — one of us, Representative Suozzi, from the perspective of immigrant’s rights as a mayor, as a county executive and now as a member of Congress; the other, Representative King, from the perspective of border security as a former county comptroller, and now...
  • She's not naive: Ilhan Omar is on the road, raising money for extreme Islamist groups

    It won’t be “all about the Benjamins baby” for protesters outside the Woodland Hills Hilton tomorrow. That's where the Council on American Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles chapter will be holding its fourth annual “Valley banquet” fundraiser hosting controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Omar has generated attention and condemnation with her series of anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks. But activists in L.A. are more concerned by her decision to raise money for various Islamist groups, some of which have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and others labeled designated as terrorist-linked by some foreign governments. CAIR-LA's executive director, Hussam Ayloush, is...

    Trump administration officials reacted with jubilation Sunday after Attorney General William Barr released the "principal conclusions" of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations that members of Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russian officials. According to Barr, the special counsel's investigation "did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government" or Russia-linked organizations in either "disinformation and social media operations" or "computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the [2016] election." In his letter, Barr added that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had concluded...

    While we don’t know yet what’s in the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, many news organizations have reported on what’s not in the report – any recommendation by Mueller for further indictments. This is very good news for President Trump and people in the Trump orbit. Not a single one of the nearly three dozen criminal indictments Mueller has obtained in his nearly two years of investigation deal with collusion between the Trump campaign or Trump himself and Russia to win the presidential race against Hillary Clinton. ~snip~ Keep in...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler confirmed Sunday that Congress will continue to investigate President Donald Trump regardless of the conclusions reached by special counsel Robert Mueller. “We know there was collusion,” Nadler insisted several times during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” with guest host Dana Bash. “Why there’s been no indictments, we don’t know.”

    In a Chicago courtroom last week, Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty to 16 felony counts of lying to authorities. His defense strategy is not yet known, but perhaps his lawyers will say Smollett picked the wrong stage. To succeed, a hate crime hoax needs a place where people expect outbursts of bigotry. An upscale Chicago neighborhood at 2 a.m. is all wrong. Late-night workers in the nearby NBC Tower aren’t out roaming in MAGA hats, bleach bottles and hemp nooses at the ready. To sell that story, you need a plausible setting—say, a woke college campus.Colleges provide the ideal venue...

    Neal Katyal, who helped draft the special counsel rules as a Justice Department lawyer in the late 1990s, said Friday that Attorney General William Barr can and should release special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report. Katyal, in an op-ed in The Washington Post, wrote that there are no regulations preventing Barr from publicizing Mueller’s findings, which were delivered to Barr late Friday afternoon. “The public has every right to see Robert S. Mueller III’s conclusions. Absolutely nothing in the law or the regulations prevents the report from becoming public. Indeed, the relevant sources of law give Attorney General P. William...

    While an array or recent controversies have developed from members of Congress around the US’ support of Israel, the fact is America is and was always pro-Israel. This is built on the foundation of early American leaders who understood the significance of Israel based on common Judeo-Christian values and solid biblical imperative. Of course, when the American founding fathers supported Israel, it was not based on the existence of a modern state. They understood that Israel, ie: Jewish people, and the Land of Israel, were inseparably linked. Long before there was ever an Israel-Arab conflict, and when Moslem Ottomans controlled...

Here, she shares with Marie Claire some of the most formative experiences on her path to success. Marie Claire: You lived in Iran until you were five. How did that shape your worldview?

    “What if there were five justices selected by Democrats,” presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke explored at a recent Iowa campaign stop, “five justices selected by Republicans, and those ten then pick five more justices independent of those who picked the first ten?”Beto, meet FDR.President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried something similar with the Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937, which would have added six new justices to the nine-justice U.S. Supreme Court. Dubbed “court-packing” at the time, it failed in the Senate, even though FDR’s Democratic Party controlled that chamber.The gambit may have been the most unpopular action of FDR’s whopping three-plus terms...

    You might realize you have a problem when your defense from the highest elected official in your party is that pathetically lame statement. There were so many bad parts of this episode – which is not nearly over -- that they need to be illuminated now that we have a smidgeon of separation. First, let’s start with an indisputable fact: the Congresswoman from Minnesota has been and is an anti-Semite. I can’t tell you specifically why or how she became such, but she is. Anyone who says she is not is delusional. That sad defense by Speaker Pelosi was just...

    The days of New York City’s Tammany Hall and the Windy City’s “Chicago Machine” may be technically over, but that doesn’t mean Democrats have given up trying to rig and steal elections in a neverending power grab that would make Mayor Daley blush. Not by a long shot. In fact, you can bet the farm that virtually any cockamamie proposal put out there by anyone with a D beside their name is specifically designed to do one thing and one thing alone - get votes. Oh, I know they like to pretend they’re all about “virtue” and “values” and helping the...
