    Donald Trump has come under fire for his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his ties to the country--and he suggested Sunday that he might recognize Russia's control of Crimea. "You know, the people of Crimea, from what I've heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were," he said on ABC's "This Week." "And you have to look at that, also. Now, that was under -- just so you understand, that was done under Obama's administration. ... Crimea has been taken. Don't blame Donald Trump for that." Trump made those comments just after saying Putin is "not...

    As the result of the international arbitration over the South China Sea dispute approaches, China is undertaking a military drill from July 5 to 11 in the waters around the Xisha Islands. In Western media reports, this exercise is happening "at a sensitive time," because the arbitral result will be announced on July 12. Beijing has announced its position of neither participation in nor recognition of the arbitration. The South China Sea dispute has been greatly complicated after heavy US intervention. Now an international tribunal has also been included, posing more threat to the integrity of China's maritime and territorial...

    Democratic lawmakers shut down the U.S. House Wednesday by staging a sit-in on the House floor to demand a vote on gun control legislation. Roughly 40 House lawmakers sat on the floor and refused to allow Republicans to take back control. They took turns talking about gun violence, said they wouldn't leave until House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., allowed a vote on measures to curb it, and chanted over and over "No bill, no break!" The House is scheduled to adjourn on Friday and be out of session until July 5.

Sometimes he uses that time to mock the conflict-obsessed media. Or he will comment on how gingerly the police treat protesters, unlike in the good old days. Or he will mention how this country has become racially divided under President Obama. Or he will tell the story of how Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders once lost his microphone to two female Black Lives Matter protesters, sometimes even acting out how Sanders wandered around the...

Yet, the Democratic National Committee decided to schedule the second Democratic presidential debate for tonight in Iowa. Because of the stunning tragedy in Paris, the debate discussion has been modified to focus largely on foreign policy and national security. The RNC, unsurprisingly, believes the Democrats' decision to host a debate on the weekend is an obvious attempt to shield Hillary Clinton from any kind of challenge on her path to the primary. Here's Communications Director Sean Spicer's take on it: If a tree falls in the middle...

    There have been two times in our history in which Americans have been firsthand witnesses to the destruction of a republican government and its replacement with a fascist system. The first of these was in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s; the second we are seeing here and now. As you read Hitlerland, by journalist Andrew Nagorski, the parallels between the two sets of events can appear to be quite uncanny. Indeed, today's American Left, the progressives and the social justice warriors and the rest, bear an eerie resemblance to the Nazis who came to power out of the decaying...

At least that used to be the case. However, this civil consensus, which has been eroding for at least a decade, has pretty much broken down completely, much of it within the last few weeks. And...

    Recently, a very disturbing video emerged that contains the metaphorical smoking gun concerning President Obamaís many lies about Obamacare. This should remove any lingering doubt that weíre dealing with a fascist-type administration. Of course, there should be no need for a smoking gun, because it is now undeniable that Obama lied on his major selling points about the Affordable Care Act. Unlike many Democrats in falsely accusing President George W. Bush of lying about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, I donít use the term ďlieĒ lightly. I donít mean that Obama made good-faith statements about his bill that he honestly...

    By Tuesday night about 90 million Americans will have cast ballots in an election thatís almost certain to create greater partisan divisions, increase gridlock and render governance of our complex nation even more difficult. Ninety million sounds like a lot, but that means that less than 40 percent of the electorate will bother to vote... The main impact of the midterm election in the modern era has been to weaken the president, the only government official (other than the powerless vice president) elected by the entire nation. Since the end of World War II, the presidentís party has on average...

    The U.S. Department of Education will introduce stricter regulations next year in its latest attempt to improve the job prospects of those graduating from for-profit colleges and universities. Under new regulations unveiled on Thursday and effective July 1, for-profit colleges will be at risk of losing federal aid should a typical graduate's annual loan repayments exceed 20 percent of discretionary income or 8 percent of total earnings.

    What country is this anymore? On the one hand, we have a Governor threatening and following through on vetoing funding for an out-of-control DAís office and being indicted for it and on the other, we have the most lawless federal administration the country has ever seen being actively ENCOURAGED by members of the same outraged left to continue to be as lawless as they want to be. And so the fascists marchÖ

    An atheist group wants to censor what priests, pastors, rabbis and other clergy say in their sermons by threatening an IRS challenge of their tax-exempt status.Generally, the leaders of houses of worship in America have the constitutional right to preach and promote anything short of an outright endorsement of a political candidate. But now, that freedom is being challenged.In 2012, the†Freedom From Religion Foundation, a nonprofit atheist organization that advocates strict separation of church and state, sued the Internal Revenue Service seeking to force the agency to question the tax-exempt status of churches and other houses of worship if they...
  • Socialists (at Portland State) shut down meeting rather than have the discussion recorded

    These are the sorts of folks Iím talking about when I say that the ďhipster fascistsĒ are the enemy of an open sourced society. Of course it is probably fair to say that not one person in this meeting room would identify themselves as a ďfascist.Ē In fact as this was a gathering of American socialists they would likely jump up and down swearing that they werenít fascists and that in fact they fought fascism and everything fascism stands for. ó Well clearly, just watch their open minds at work in the video. It has been my experience that many...
  • Approach to soda, to be patterned after tobacco

    Upon a declaration of a ďwarĒ against the product, advocates against the consumption of soda state that it should also include in its labels the risks for developing diseases such as obesity and diabetes. By doing so, they will be using an approach quite similar to the tobaccoís.

    What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.

    The chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology charged Thursday that reports from the United Nations and the White House on the threat of global climate change ďappear to be designed to spread fear and alarmĒ in an effort to provide the Obama administration with ďan excuse to control more of the lives of the American people.Ē

    Meet the well-funded advocacy network of liberal groups that orchestrated the successful ouster of the Benham Brothers from HGTV. Until last week, David and Jason Benham were set to host a new home-renovation show on the Home and Garden Television network, called ďFlip It Forward.Ē But all that changed after an obscure website called Right Wing Watch drew negative attention to the Benhamís conservative views on abortion and gay marriage. The website vilified the hosts with the headline, ďHGTV Picks Anti-Gay, Anti-Choice Extremist For New Reality TV Show.Ē The story shed light on how the hostsí father, Flip Benham, is...
