  • President Trump’s First 100 Days

    Everyone observing politics seems to agree on two things about a president’s first 100 days in office: 1. 100 days is a meaningless, arbitrary marker for a president’s performance that is likely to be more misleading than useful. and… 2. Let’s treat it like it is important! Reeeeeeee! The thing that fascinates me the most about this situation is that the so-called “pro-science” people are giving Trump low grades for his first 100 days. Allow me to connect some dots. In science, you don’t have much of an experiment unless you have a control case for comparison. For example, you...
  • Female Genital Mutilation- the illegal immigrant that needs to be deported immediately

    This is the face of evil. It is the face of a wretched and barbaric practice- female genital mutilation. It is sometimes sugared over with the term female circumcision but make no mistake- it is mutilation. FGM refers to all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for cultural or other non-medical reasons. The woman in the picture above is Dr. Jumana Nagarwala. Her medical credentials are not in question: She graduated the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1998, according to an online bio (see cached...
  • TSA Sexual Assault Redux

    World News Bureau ^ | April 25, 2017 | Gina Miller
    Back in February, I wrote a report on being heavily groped between my legs by a woman with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. I labeled what she did to me sexual assault, to which some people took offense in the comment sections where the column was posted. However, what she did fits the definition of sexual assault as provided by the United States Department of Justice. You can nit-pick definition and intent all you like and can call it what you will, but I will call a spade a spade, and just...

    Meet Jon Ossoff: The Latest Dem Savior He’s got “Kennedy-ish” features. April 25, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam P> The Democrats are in trouble. And the list of party saviors is as broad as it is laughable. There’s Bernie Sanders, who denies that he’s a Democrat, Elizabeth Warren, who might not even survive reelection in her own state, Keith Ellison, an Islamist who keeps lying about his past with Farrakhan, Howard Dean, currently denying the existence of the First Amendment, and Maxine Waters....
  • President Trump Appeases Government To Prevent A Shutdown, As Nuclear Power Sub Approaches N. Korea

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    I was worried about a government shutdown at a very critical time in which we could go to war with North Korea. We have to put first things first, and I would say the situation with North Korea has to be a priority right now. Government spending and a wall can wait until we have a stable footing on the war front. A U.S. guided-missile submarine arrived in South Korea on Tuesday and envoys from the U.S., Japan and South Korea met in Tokyo, as North Korea marked the anniversary of the founding of its military. The people of North...
  • Border rancher: Illegal crossings down 90% since Trump became president

    The American Mirror ^ | 04/25/2017 | Kyle Olson
    Arizona ranchers John Ladd and Fred Davis invited House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see the southern border from their property, but she never responded. But they responded this morning to Pelosi’s recent claim that the border wall is “immoral, expensive, unwise.” Appearing on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, Ladd said border crossings by illegal aliens have decreased 90% to 95% since Donald Trump took office. Perhaps more shockingly, Ladd has determined through Border Patrol data that some 500,000 illegal aliens have crossed his property in the 30 years he’s owned it. {..snip..}

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Dan Calabrese
    Trickery On first glance, this looks bad: According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, only 37 percent of Americans want ObamaCare repealed and replaced, as opposed to 61 percent who prefer that we “keep and improve” it. How could this happen? How could a law that has never been popular, has never worked well and has resulted in soaring premiums and collapsing insurance markets suddenly be popular? Like I said, it appears that way on first glance, but if you think about the choices offered in the poll, you’ll notice something:

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Robert Laurie
    Barack Obama learned it from watching you, Hillary! Democrats, as we all know, loathe the so-called “one percent.” We all know their ranks are clogged with over payed movie-stars, “woke” CEO’s, and career politicians who, like Harry Reid, inexplicably manage to make millions in the public service arena, but that’s not the point. Those one-percenters are OK because they toe the left-wing line. Being wealthy is only a problem if you try to stand up to their agenda. Occasionally, that plays out in interesting ways. During the 2016 election, the Bernie-loving socialists were thrilled when Sanders attacked Hillary Clinton’s outrageous...

    Chris Hayes goes all in on Black Nationalism with "A Colony in a Nation" Black Nationalism is hot. Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, in which publishing’s answer to Kanye West contended that the white firefighters of 9/11 were “not human,” won a National Book Award. Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning, which indicted a post-racial society as racist, won the next one. But the dirty little secret is that the target audience for these Black Nationalist tracts is as lily white as the MSNBC lineup.

    The media, and Democrats, lost in November for any number of reasons, including their own incompetence and misunderstanding of the American people—not Comey’s actions or a Russian influence operation The New York Times recently published a lengthy postmortem on the effects that the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and the bureau’s investigation into Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia had on the 2016 election. The paper casts blame because FBI Director James Comey went public with the Clinton investigation, but didn’t expose the Trump inquiry during the election. “For all the attention on Mrs. Clinton’s emails, history is likely...

    Retired Marine Major Gen. Randolph Alles, the current U.S. Customs and Border deputy, is expected to be tapped to lead the Secret Service, according to a former law enforcement official familiar with the selection process. Alles has served as the acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection since Trump’s inauguration. He previously served stints as the CBP’s acting executive assistant commissioner of enterprise services and leading the department’s Air and Marine Operations. Prior to serving in the federal government, Alles served for 35 years in the Marine Corps, retiring in 2011 with the rank of Major General. Alles...

    Those who are responsible for feeding our world and keeping up with the forever changing challenges facing the food and agriculture industry have come together to work with those who have defended our nation. Michigan State University Institute of Agricultural Technology accompanied by extension agencies and some of the food and agriculture industry's leaders, work with partners like the Veterans' Services Division of the Michigan Workforce Development Agency and the VA Hospital System to train veterans and ultimately help them obtain a job within the field as part of a program called Vets to Ag.

    According to information released by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), South African demand for US EB-5 visas has more than doubled since 2014. The EB-5 investor visa allows visa holders to obtain a green card for themselves and their immediate family members by investing $500,000 into U.S. businesses provided they create a required number of jobs. “For the first time, our industry now has access to the actual number of investors who applied, as apposed to just the number of EB-5 visas approved,” said Rogelio Caceres, co-founder of LCR Capital, a private equity investment firm that assists...
  • Mr. President: Do not release your tax returns. Ever. Here's why:

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/25/17 | Dan Calabrese
    Line in the sand The latest Democrat threat is that they will somehow stop all tax reform until President Trump releases his tax returns. This follows constant media carping during the election demanding that very same thing, only to have the demand rejected by Trump and, by extension, by the electorate. But wait, you say! Polls consistently show the public wants Trump to release his returns. Sure they do, and it’s a classic example of what’s called push polling. When a pollster asks a person if he thinks something would be a good idea, that doesn’t necessarily mean the person...

    Barack Obama is "NOT MY PRESIDENT" but only "yesterday's man" America, you’ve got a problem: Organizing for Action (OFA)—the organization and community organizing project that advocates for the agenda of “FORMER” President Barack Obama—founded after Obama’s re-election, sent out an email blast this morning from “PRESIDENT Barack Obama, April 24, 2017.” A poisonous play on words put into use by the group that seeks to mobilize supporters in favor of Obama’s legislative priorities; a lie getting around the world before the truth can put its pants on. And because OFA is “a nonprofit 501(c) organization and organizing project that advocates...
  • From Now On, the Left Will Only Be Using “Clean Skins”

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Elections are now too dangerous to be left to chance and to the whims of voters, the Left has decided. Any candidate they put forth could potentially lose, and it will be “factors” that lead to a loss. “Factors” could include: past voting records, past affiliations, the surfacing of compromising emails, photos, acquaintances, past political stance and any range of things that a politician may have done over the years. But what could they achieve if they had a candidate with zero “factors” and no history? They could make of him (or her) whatever they wished. Within the Security Services,...
  • Is It “UnChristian” to Execute 8 Murderers?

    Rapture Forums ^ | 4/24/17 | Bryan Fischer
    The Bible clearly supports the death penalty for those who commit cold-blooded murder. At one point, Arkansas was scheduled to put eight murderers to death in 11 days, before its lethal injection drug reaches its expiration date. Is this, as many are arguing, an unChristian thing to do? A piece in Christian Today includes this incendiary headline, “Christian campaigners horrified by Arkansas execution.” This headline is written as if that is the only acceptable “Christian” position to take. The article makes reference to “the state’s rush to the death chamber,” apparently mindless of the plain legal fact that these men...

A day for looking back at what has happened and a day for looking away from what will happen. Millions of dollars have been spent building memorials to the victims of the Holocaust, even as Iran is spending its millions on building another kind of memorial to the Holocaust, in the form of nuclear technology that will be used to finish that piece of history that the Islamic terror state claims never took place. Millions more are spent, by some of...

    Defense bonds or War Bonds as they have become known after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor -- These bonds, or debt securities were used for the purpose of financing military operations during war time, the bonds yielded a mere 2.9 percent return after a 10-year maturity -- These bonds are not going to fund a retirement, but they will help fund operations current and future engagements. I think this is a great way for President Trump to continue to use the media to get the message out, perfect opportunities would be Memorial Day rally's, 4th of July, and Veterans...
