    A Riverside gun store owner has harsh words for Sacha Baron Cohen after he says he caught the actor showing up to his business in disguise and under false pretense, and it was all caught on surveillance video. The video was provided exclusively to FOX 11.
  • More Ocasio-Cortez: Low Unemployment Rate Is Because More People Have Two Jobs, You Know

    Jazz earlier described Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a gift to the GOP, but perhaps more accurately, she’s a gift that keeps on giving. So too for that matter is her appearance with Margaret Hoover on PBS’ Firing Line this weekend. Not only did she fumble an answer on the “Palestinian occupation,” Ocasio-Cortez managed to err completely on a basic economic question — despite her supposed expertise in the subject:

    RUSH: Mark in Fort Worth, Texas, is next, and it’s your turn. Hello. CALLER: Hello, Rush. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to make the host look good this afternoon. I wanted to take events of the last 72 hours and dovetail them with what you’ve been preaching to us for about the last two years, and that is that the media’s number one priority is separating Trump voters from Trump. In the last 72 hours, the cacophony from the left and the media has been so outrageous in part because I think the Kavanaugh decision, along...

    Man Arrested After Threatening To Kill GOP Rep. Zeldin Campaign Worker. “A man was arrested in Suffolk County, New York on Friday for making “terroristic threats” against a campaign worker for GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin. . . . According to the release, Astrof threatened to kill supporters of Congressman Lee Zeldin and President Donald Trump at Zeldin’s campaign headquarters in New York.” Here’s the police report. HISTORY’S BAD IDEAS ARE AN INSPIRATION FOR PROGRESSIVES, Victor Davis Hanson writes: Yet 19th-century nullification is the font of the current “sanctuary city” law adopted by nearly 500 American cities that declare federal immigration...
  • The left’s personal destruction machine turns its focus on Jim Jordan

    American Thinker ^ | 07/07/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    Jim Jordan has been one of the most effective investigators in pursuing the cabal that weaponized the FBI and intelligence agencies to fight the candidacy and then the presidency of Donald Trump.  Rather than answer him with facts and documents, the left is out to destroy him, which tells anyone paying attention that he is on to something. This campaign began to tar him with scandal, no matter how far-fetched.  George Rasley explains at Conservative HQ: NBC News published an article on Tuesday, quoting Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts, two former Ohio State University wrestlers, claiming that when Jim Jordan worked as assistant...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/29/18 | Logan Hall
    When Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., gave a speech at a rally against government immigration policy, her message was clear: If you see anyone who’s recognizably affiliated with the Trump administration conducting their private affairs in public, they must be exiled and excised from public life. This display of hatred, paired with other recent demonstrations by the radical Left, shows a big problem for Democrats: They are alienating portions of their base, pushing many center-left voters to the right. The Democratic shift towards extremism is well-documented. Unsurprisingly, the Left’s growing radicalism has taken over the Democratic Party. The malicious parts of...

    Ohio Since President Trump’s election, journalists, political scientists and others from across the United States and around the world have visited our little southern Ohio town, population 6,600, to study the natives. Naturally, patronizing local eateries at breakfast or lunchtime is usually part of their itinerary. We contrast this, of course, with the recent episodes involving Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, both of whom were essentially evicted from restaurants — Nielsen heckled away by customers, Sanders asked by the restaurant owner to leave — for the crime of Trump association, similar to...

    The Left is having the worst flu season ever. Almost all of them have been infected by Trump Derangement Syndrome to such a degree that they can't see or think straight. It's a plague year -- make that two years -- and we're living it. Oh, how we're living it! Self-destructive, nincompoop behavior is rampant with members of the so-called Resistance (what a desecration of the real Resistance that is!) now showing up at restaurants to harass members of the administration while they eat. Do these clowns have any idea how that plays in Middle America? Do these people think...

    Dear America, the societal left has declared war on you. While you’ve been busy enjoying your new jobs, improved wages, lower taxes, and less government interference in your life the left has decided that all of those things are immoral. They must be undone. And those who enjoy them must be made to understand that they are not good American citizens, but some sort of participant to hurt others. They would love to say it makes you a racist, except that African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the best economy they’ve ever known in American history. They would love to...

    President and his family, as well as members of his administration, are truly in danger as the Post Trump Stress Disorder epidemic intensifies and spreads across the country, with no signs of stopping any time soon Each day, it gets worse across the world, but especially in our country. The epidemic of PTSD (Post Trump Stress Disorder) is spreading quickly across the American leftist population. It is easily apparent in a media that is 95% anti-Trump and includes liberal reporters who masquerade as objective journalists. Among the stricken are so-called analysts and who shout offensive questions at the White House...

    In this deeply liberal California city, frustration over crises around housing and homelessness is bringing some on the left a little further right. At an upscale sushi restaurant, a few dozen members of the San Francisco Republican Party gathered on Tuesday night to watch the election results. Most did not want to talk about state or national politics, they wanted to keep it local.

    Only on the left would we see the presidential pardon of a non-violent drug offender, a cause that up until now has been a Sorosian shibboleth, greeted with grumbles. Why? Because President Trump took the initiative to get it done, hearing of the 63 year-old grandmother's plight from big-name celebrity Kim Kardashian. The left loathes Trump more than they value that woman and the cause she represents, so a good deed suddenly becomes a bad deed. Here's how the left and its media minions took it, starting with the Guardian: On Wednesday, Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson,...

    Hollywood’s left-leaning politics has made the industry a bęte noire among conservatives for decades. But Netflix has made some recent moves that have especially rankled Republicans. In March, the streamer named Susan Rice — former national security adviser to President Obama, and a conservative target in the Bengazi scandal — to its board of directors. Last month, Netflix officially announced an exclusive multiyear deal with the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions for original programming. And last week, it premiered “The Break with Michelle Wolf” — a late-night-style show from the comedian who delivered a blistering takedown of the Trump administration and...

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    When you are a writer who learns a beloved author has a dark side, you experience waves of disillusionment. When you teach that author’s work, you feel an additional stab of concern: What about my syllabus? A professor’s syllabus, often set months in advance to facilitate book orders, is a carefully constructed course plan. We have favorite exercises or close readings that are revelatory for students, and joyful for us. As intellectual property goes, a great syllabus is a gold mine. Or perhaps a better metaphor would be a Jenga Game. Take away too many supporting pieces and the whole...

"We don't want to become a public bathroom, but we're going to make the right decision 100 percent of the time and give people the key," Schultz said at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C. "Because we don't want anyone at Starbucks to feel as if we are not giving access to you to the bathroom because you are 'less than.' We want you to be 'more than.' "
