    Editor's note: The following column is excerpted from D'Souza's book, "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party" (Regnery Publishing, July 18, 2016). Contrary to what we learn from progressives in education and media, the history of the Democratic Party well into the twentieth century is virtually uninterrupted history of thievery, corruption and bigotry.  American history is the story of Democratic malefactors and Republican heroes.  Yes, it’s true.I begin with Andrew Jackson. He, not Thomas Jefferson or FDR,is the true founder of the modern Democratic Party.  Progressives today are divided about Jackson.  Some, like historian Sean Wilentz, admire him,...

    It seems as if the alternative media has rallied around the flag, which in Hillary’s case was probably purchased by benefactors like Goldman Sachs and the Gulf Arab slave state of Qatar. After all, who can resist GIRL POWER, even if it’s marshaled on behalf of someone who’s spent much of her career destroying the reputations of Bill Clinton’s comfort women? To get a sense of the cognitive dissonance at work, it’s worth reading this week’s Village Voice, which all but admits its preferred candidate is an inveterate liar, albeit one who can answer that 3 A.M. call!

Obama also reiterated what he said in a news conference on Friday: that he doesn't think the dark picture of America that Trump painted in his nomination speech is true, even in the wake of an attack on a Munich mall later that day that killed at least nine people.

    President Obama said in an interview with CBS airing Sunday that honesty was “absolutely necessary” for a president in order to build trust with the American people. Obama has endorsed his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to succeed him in the White House. In the wake of her private email scandal and the FBI’s revelation that she was “extremely careless” with classified material, Clinton’s honesty numbers with the public are dismal. The FBI also refuted Clinton’s constant claim that she never sent or received classified material on her server, which she has dismissed as a mere “mistake.” “FDR and...

The problem is “gun control” sounds so fascist and Americans are kind of attached to their rights so a liberal think tank led by Gabby Giffords’ anti-gun group has come up with ways that democrats like Hillary Clinton can bullshit voters into thinking their unconstitutional efforts are something other than what they are.

But when asked about Anders Behring Breivik, the right-wing Norwegian terrorist who killed 77 people exactly five years earlier, Chief Andrä answered that “this connection is obvious.”

Based on history rather than polls or demographics, he insists Donald Trump will win the presidential race—and win easily. History is an argument not often heard in presidential elections except in one case: the likelihood that after one party holds the White House for eight years, that party probably won't win four more years. The one exception in the past half-century was the election of George H.W. Bush...

Obama said, "The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is...

The chemicals are a potent source of greenhouse gas emissions that many scientists blame for contributing to global warming.

    Officials have urged residents in a small Colorado town not to consume their water after several wells tested positive for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. So far no illnesses have been linked to the water in Hugo -- a town of around 700 people located roughly 100 miles southeast of Denver -- according to officials. The announcement comes after a local company was testing its own water and got a positive result. Local law enforcement was then notified and further testing in other locations took place, which revealed additional positive results, reports ABC Denver affiliate, KMGH. "At this point...

    SIERRA VISTA — A representative from the Army Corps of Engineers revealed the findings Wednesday of a four-year munitions study of more than 1,500 acres in the San Pedro Riparian Conservation Area (SPRNCA), southeast of the San Pedro House. The study was looking for live munitions or other environmental factors from World War II Army use that would impact the acreage. Two live explosives and fragments of explosives in the dense, thorny acreage were discovered. A third live explosive was carried out by a hiker and turned over to local authorities. “It is not a hospitable site,” said 1st Lt....

    As chances continue to improve that Hillary Clinton will name Virginia Democrat Senator Tim Kaine (shown) as her vice-presidential running mate later this afternoon, a closer look at the affable, non-controversial socialist reveals a man not likely to interfere with the Clinton presidency if she wins in November. He has all the credentials of a socialist and all the charm that is sorely lacking in his would-be running mate. He also hails from Virginia, which has 13 Electoral College votes that could become critical in the November election.

    Open carry in Cleveland Ohio at the Republican National Convention has been hyped by those that want to disarm the population.  A scam petition was created to open carry inside the convention floor.  It was run by a “progressive” to create problems for Second Amendment supporters.  It did not last for long or fool many. The Quicken Loans location is a private concern.Then the head of the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association published a hysterical rant about how the Constitution need not apply.  He wanted the citizenry disarmed. From cnn.com:“We are sending a letter to Gov. Kasich requesting assistance from...

    After his address at the Republican national convention in Cleveland on Monday, it would be inaccurate to declare that a star is born, because it's been clear for some time that Tom Cotton's performance has been stellar all along. Whether he was at Harvard, with the military, or in the U.S. Senate, he's taken stands no one else might dare -- and backed them up with a courage that springs from conviction. This boy from Dardanelle, Ark., in Yell County -- Mattie Ross country -- has grown into a man his family, his state and now his country can be...
  • Guest opinion: PERA’s low returns call for a change ( Colorado )

    The leaders of Colorado’s Public Employee Retirement Association (PERA) assure us that if we have patience, long-term investment returns of 7.5 percent will fully fund the program’s promises to retirees over the next 40 years or so. But what if those returns fail to materialize? Moving PERA from the current defined benefit plan to a defined contribution or cash balance-style plan would remove much of the burden of returns falling short from taxpayers, while helping along the long-term financial health of PERA. Coloradans got a taste of that this past year, when PERA achieved a paltry 1.5 percent return on...

    When communication about the unspeakable stupidity of the recent U.S. 231 rock-throwing incidents first popped into my email inbox a couple months back, the subject line made me gasp. "Rock throwing arrests," read the line heralding arrival of an email from Owen County Prosecutor Don VanDerMoere, a likable former deputy prosecutor for Putnam County who still keeps in contact. Before I could even click to open it, my heart was pounding and my mind went to thoughts like, "Oh, my god they finally caught those guys." However, it was a leap of faith to a wrong conclusion. Instead we have...
