  • Leftists Decry Straight Black Men as 'The White People of Black People'

    The Declaration ^ | September 21, 2017 | By Pardes Seleh
    Left-wing writers are taking the victim narrative to a new level this week, decrying “straight black men” as the “white people of black people.” In a column for The Root's “Very Smart Brothas,” writer Damon Young accused straight black men of having the “type of privilege created for and protected by whiteness.” Black men, while victims of the white man's oppressiveness, are the oppressors of the nonheterosexual/male black person.

    RUSH: Samantha Power has been unmasking Americans in the last year of the Obama Regime at the rate of one American every working day. Two-hundred-and-sixty different Americans unmasked by someone not even in the intelligence community. She was a U.N. ambassador. It would be the equivalent of Nikki Haley today unmasking a bunch of people that she thought not — Now, I don’t know that too many people know much about Samantha Power. Do you remember my in-depth explanation of the Washington establishment yesterday? She is it. She is a superiorist. She is a supremacist. She is a DNA socialist....

    RUSH: Meanwhile, while all this is going on, Donald Trump is kicking ass. I’m sorry. Kicking butt. While all of this is going on, Donald Trump is triumphing. The Wall Street Journal has — we touched on an aspect of the poll yesterday. There are more internals in the poll out today. But, you know, there’s a bunch of favorable views now on what Trump did with Chuck and Nancy and DACA, based on what happened to Pelosi. Remember when Trump did the Chuck and Nancy deal and agreed to kick the debt limit issue down the road three months...

    During the campaign, Donald J. Trump made lots of promises -- he'd be the greatest jobs president God ever created, he'd cut taxes, he'd balance the budget, he'd give all Americans fantastic health care, he'd renegotiate NAFTA, he'd scotch the Iran deal and so on. But there was one central promise without which he wouldn't have been elected: He said he'd build a wall.

    Washington Post ^ | September 21, 2017 | by Ed Rogers
    I thought I would avoid having anything to say about Hillary Clinton’s latest book. I thought the book, “What Happened,” was meant to be some sort of cathartic Hillary Clinton 3.0 end of the story. I thought it would be accompanied by a graceful farewell tour. I forgot: The Clintons don’t do graceful, and they certainly don’t do farewells. Instead, Clinton is thrashing around in front of the faithful, having pity parties and making news that has caught the attention of Republicans everywhere. Incredibly, Clinton herself declares that she is anything but done. She isn’t on a farewell tour or...

    With little need for intelligence reports to do her job, former Obama United Nations ambassador Samantha Power had an abnormally ravenous appetite for spying, especially when it came to Americans. According to Fox News: Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News. Two sources, who were not...

    NEW YORK — The worst aspect of President Trump’s speech at the United Nations on Tuesday was not his immature taunting of a dangerous foreign leader when the stakes far outweigh those of a schoolyard fight. Calling North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man” may make Trump happy by reminding him of the glory days of “Little Marco,” “Lyin’ Ted” and “Crooked Hillary.” But it does nothing to win over the allies we need. And his pledge “to totally destroy North Korea” is what you’d expect to hear in a bar conversation from a well-lubricated armchair general, not from...

    If you have no idea what happened at the second meeting of President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in New Hampshire on Sept. 12, I’m not surprised. Though a horde of reporters attended the meeting, almost all of the media stories that emerged from it simply repeated the progressive left’s mantra that the commission is a “sham.” Almost no one covered the substantive and very concerning testimony of 10 expert witnesses on the problems that exist in our voter registration and election system. The witnesses included academics, election lawyers, state election officials, data analysts, software experts, and computer...

    Donald Trump took a lot of heat when he announced his candidacy for President, stating that he would build a border fence from San Diego to Brownsville and make Mexico pay for it, all to keep Mexico’s “unwanted” and “undesirables” from flooding the United States. In August 2015, on the campaign trail, he shed light on a flawed interpretation of the U.S. Constitution that has caused much of the problem of illegal immigration. That misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, written to guarantee the citizenship rights of freed slaves after the Civil War, has morphed the amendment into a guarantee of...
  • 3 Priorities to Guide Tax Reform

    Townhall.com ^ | September 21, 2017 | Veronique de Rugy
    Congress is finally tackling the tax code, which is good news because reform is badly needed. Our outdated code is complicated by thousands of credits, deductions, and exemptions to individual and corporate interests -- and it imposes high rates that inhibit economic growth. However, as we've seen with the failed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, getting a consensus among Republican members is easier said than done. It should boil down to three priorities. First, though overhauling the whole tax code would be great, if the goal is economic growth, reforming the corporate side is the most pressing priority. Everyone...

    In a remarkable speech marked by fearlessness and clarity, the leader of the free world told other world leaders this week that all of them -- himself included -- need to focus on their own people. In his first address to the United Nations, President Donald Trump offered a mixture of views that provided both paradox and clarity. He focused on sovereignty but was not isolationist. He was respectful of other forms of government but pushed world leaders to focus more on people than on government. Trump reaffirmed his belief in the slogan that helped win him the nation's...

    While campaigning for the presidency, Donald Trump more than once referred to the United Nations as a "useless" organization and "not a friend of democracy." In his speech Tuesday to the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, he apparently has discovered the often dysfunctional body can be useful if it adopts the reforms he is proposing and accepts an agenda that includes uniting to stop North Korea from obtaining nuclear weapons and missiles to strike at the U.S. and other targets. This may have been Trump's finest speech as president. Written by Stephen Miller, Trump's senior policy...

    I grew up in suburbia, and have spent various parts of my life in small towns, a Southern city and in rural Indiana. Moving may be a hassle, but new experiences in new locations provide wonderful opportunities to learn and explore. That's certainly true as I adjust to life in New York City, a vastly different environment than anything I've tried before. Living in the city, my wife and I have encountered government as never before. We rely on the subway to get around, enjoy strolls through Central Park, routinely see police officers and traffic cops and have heard about...

    It's happening all over America. Liberal CEOs appear to be purposely committing brand suicide. Their cardinal sin is arrogance and ignorance. Remarkably, they don't even understand their own customers’ base. ESPN and Vegas casino giant MGM Resorts International should serve as Exhibit A. Vegas and ESPN have much in common. ESPN has committed suicide with its obsession with liberal, progressive, politically correct beliefs. The fact is Vegas’s core audience is exactly the same as ESPN’s. Vegas’s audience has three key demographics: A) Middle America. Overwhelmingly this group voted for Donald Trump. B) Conventioneers. This group is composed of business owners,...

    ... Climate change is both too near and too far for us to be able to internalise: too near because we make it worse with every minute act of our daily lives; too far because until now it has been something that affects foreign people in foreign countries, or future versions of ourselves that we can only conceive of ephemerally. It’s not surprising, then, that some years ago climate activists switched to a message of optimism. They listened to studies that showed optimism was more galvanising than despair, and they began to talk about hope, empowerment, and success stories. They...

    Warning: Graphic LanguageThe pejorative "Uncle Tom" causes more damage than does the word "n-----." The "N-word," when used by a white person as an epithet against a black person, is an insult, designed to convey to the recipient that he or she is a second-class citizen. It is designed to make one feel inferior. But it hasn't worked. My parents, as did the parents of my friends, said no one can make you feel inferior without your permission. Lesson learned. For decades, tests measuring self-esteem show that teenage black boys and girls test higher than do white boys and white...

    Planned Parenthood of Northern New England along with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit Wednesday challenging a provision of a Maine law that says abortions can only be performed by physicians.The ACLU claims that the law “significantly restricts patient access to abortion services in Maine, and prevents some Maine women from receiving an abortion from their regular primary and gynecological care provider,” and “blocks qualified nurse practitioners and nurse-midwives (also known as advanced practice registered nurses, or APRNs) from doing so, despite their rigorous post-graduate training and extensive clinical experience.”“Today, while medication abortion is available via telemedicine...

    On her current book tour, Hillary Clinton is still blaming the Russians (among others) for her unexpected defeat in last year's presidential election. She remains sold on a conspiracy theory that Donald Trump successfully colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin to rig the election in Trump's favor. But allegations that a president won an election due to foreign collusion have been lodged by losers of elections throughout history. Some of the charges may have had a kernel of truth, but it has never been proven that foreign tampering changed the outcome of an election. In 2012, then-President Barack Obama...
