  • Is President Trump Caving on Gun Control ?

    President Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that the Congress should basically create a national gun registry, as he proposed something along the lines of ďcomprehensive background checksĒ, whatever that means. Hereís the tweet: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/966662241977360384 The thing is, this tweet can be interpreted in 2 ways. If youíre a leftist, you may argue that President Trump finally caved on gun control, and in the aftermath of the Florida high-school shooting heís asking Congress to create a national gun registry and universal background check legislation, a measure pushed and lauded by the anti 2nd amendment left for years. Itís interesting that not...

    The stronger economy weíre enjoying now is no accident. Lower taxes, more jobs and fewer regulations are creating a much-needed boost. So why do we still have one foot on the brake? Iím referring to trade. Protectionist measures act as a drag on our progress. Indeed, they threaten to undo much of it. Consider the tariffs and quotas that the Trump administration recently slapped on imports of solar cells and modules, large residential washers, and washer parts. The price? As researcher Tori Whiting notes in a Daily Signal article, we get fewer jobs (roughly 23,000 American jobs this year, according...

    They arenít calling him ďLyiní TedĒ anymore. Sen. Ted Cruzís stock is rising among members of President Trumpís base who feel double-crossed after the president offered amnesty to illegals in the immigration debate. Some who opposed Mr. Cruz in his 2016 run for the White House are even clamoring for the Texas Republican to mount a primary challenge to Mr. Trump in 2020. The newfound esteem for Mr. Cruz, whom Mr. Trump dubbed ďLyiní TedĒ when they battled for the 2016 Republican nomination, is coming from people who were die-hard supporters of the president. ďTed Cruz has kept his word...

    Can we trust the judgement of think-tanks who have labeled Twitter users as part of a ‚ÄėRussian influence campaign‚Äô as sound when those same entities provide little evidence, and their high-level members include former Clinton supporters?At the beginning of 2017, an initiative was launched by a non-partisan think-tank called the German Marshall Fund US (GMFUS) under the name ‚ÄúThe Alliance For Securing Democracy‚ÄĚ (ASD).During the Summer, ASD started working on a project they called the ‚ÄúHamilton 68 Dashboard‚Äú, an effort that was presented to the public as a means of monitoring Russian disinformation efforts on Twitter, apparently boosted by...
  • How white nationalists fooled the media about Florida shooter

    ABC, AP and others ran with false information on shooterís ties to extremist groups. Following misrepresentations by a white nationalist leader and coordinated efforts by internet trolls, numerous researchers and media outlets spread a seemingly false claim that the man charged with killing more than a dozen people at a Florida high school belonged to an extremist group. Law enforcement agencies say they have no evidence so far to support this claim, and the rumor appears to have been perpetrated by white nationalist trolls themselves.

    If one needed proof that Muellerís investigation was an utter farce, they were in for a treat this morning when the Deputy Attorney General announced the indictment of thirteen ďRussian trolls,Ē for allegedly interfering in the 2016 Presidential election by posting on social media accounts. Laying Muellerís disregard of the First Amendment aside, the indictment is blatantly hypocritical in light of active social media intervention by pro-Clinton David Brock and his multi-million dollar efforts to ĎCorrect The Record.í

    James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence said he believes there could be "other shoes to drop" in the Russia probe, which took a dramatic turn on Friday after new charges against multiple Russian nationals and entities were announced. "I think there are other shoes to drop here ó notably finances," Clapper said during a CNN interview Friday night. "I think that's going to be another profound thing that's going to come out about this." "What were the financial relationships between the Trump Organization before the election and the Trump campaign," Clapper said. He clarified that he isn't personally...

    There are few things in Washington that everyone agrees on Ė ask a Democrat and a Republican what the weather is like and youíre likely to get complete different answers. But there is one thing they all agree on: the current immigration system is messed up. I donít use the popular word ďbrokenĒ because something isnít really broken when so many people simply ignore it. Thatís the biggest problem with the immigration system, cities and states (and for decades the federal government) have ignored the law and are implementing their will instead. A major part of the appeal of Donald...

    Synopsis: This is certainly one of THE most important stories I've ever done. Within the last hour we received what appears to be an official British TOP SECRET signals intelligence document dated Nov. 17, 2016, showing that President Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice were the ones who first requested electronic spying on the candidate Donald Trump, just 7 days after Trump won the Republican nomination in late August, 2016. The secret document, which has no redactions, was sent by Robert Hannigan, the Director of GCHQ, to Boris Johnson, the British Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth...

    The Week ^ | February 11, 2018 | Damon Linker
    The free speech wars are getting worse, but it seems that none of the warring factions quite grasp the character of the dispute ó or precisely what's at stake. At the figurative center of the clash is the norm of near-absolute freedom of speech and expression, which its defenders like to treat as the American default. A number of ideological challenges have arisen in recent years to overturn this norm. On many college campuses, groups of left-leaning students insist that free speech should be conditional on speakers adhering to explicit standards of diversity and avoiding the infliction of emotional harm...

    During his campaign, Trump revved his crowds by having them chant, ďBuild the wall.Ē Then he would slap on the false campaign promise of the century by stating ĎMexico would pay for the wall.í Perhaps the president was just ďplaying chessĒ with his loyal supporters? Perhaps the reality TV star turned president should have created the chant, ďBuild the fence,Ē because thatís what a new proposal is reportedly declaring. According to Breitbart, a senior official claims the White House was scheduled to request $3 billion in funding for President Donald Trumpís long-promised wall on the Southern border. However, the requested...

    Even Elon Musk thinks his space-cruising midnight-cherry Tesla Roadster looks weird. "It looks so ridiculous and impossible," the SpaceX CEO told reporters after the Falcon Heavy megarocket launched the car into space yesterday (Feb. 6). "You can tell it's real because it looks so fake, honestly." ... Think of it this way: Light can travel through different mediums ó including air, water and the vacuum of space ó each of which has a different refractive index, he said. That is, these mediums bend light differently, which explains why colored light doesn't look the same in one medium as it does...

    I was one of the many people moved to tears by President Trump's State of the Union address. We all had our own insights and reasons for the depth of our response. I wonder how many of us felt as though his words began to repair some of the stealthy damage done to our national identity by the DeepState/MSM and the left. Listening to the best SOTU I have ever heard, I can say I wept quiet tears of gratitude, empathy and relief. And there were other tears that were hard to describe. Those tears reminded me of a church...

    Research shows a link, but it isnít retirement itself that leads to a longer life, but what you do in retirement. You may not need another reason to retire early, but Iíll give you one anyway: It could lengthen your life. Thatís the thrust from various research in recent years, and also from a 2017 study in the journal Health Economics. In that study, Hans Bloemen, Stefan Hochguertel and Jochem Zweerink ó all economists from the Netherlands ó looked at what happened when, in 2005, some Dutch civil servants could temporarily qualify for early retirement. Only those at least 55...

    They seek to sweep away borders and establish a stateless society. Their female fighters struggle and die beside male comrades. Their leftist, anti-Islamist image has attracted American and European volunteers. The Kurdish fighters who are battling the Islamic State jihadists in Syria are regarded by the United States as its most reliable partners there. But to Turkey, a NATO ally of the United States, these Kurds are terrorists. The Kurdish group, known as the Peopleís Protection Units, or Y.P.G., is now facing an escalating battle with Turkish forces in northwestern Syria, complicating American policy.

    WASHINGTON ó President Trump ordered the firing last June of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive. The West Wing confrontation marks the first time Mr. Trump is known to have tried to fire the special counsel. Mr. Mueller learned about the episode in recent months as his investigators interviewed current and former senior White House officials in his inquiry into whether the president obstructed justice. Amid the first wave...
