    What a terrible price there is to pay for a judge who naively questions whether unelected bureaucrats should have the final say on what the law means to the rights and livelihoods of their subjects. Mother Jones recently sounded the alarm that Brett Kavanaugh threatens the power of unelected “agencies to implement rules and regulations, even when the statutes—often vague—do not obviously call for them, or when judges would have personally interpreted the law differently.” You see, these agencies have “expertise on the complex issues they regulate, are better positioned” than judges or lawmakers to “create workable rules.”

    New York Slimes ^ | September 17, 2018 | David Leonhardt
    And the Democratic Party has not actually become a band of radical leftists Conventional wisdom says that the middle is disappearing from American politics: The Republicans have moved far to the right, the Democrats far to the left, and woe to any moderate voters looking for politicians to represent their views. Well, the conventional wisdom is wrong. The Democrats have not actually become radical leftists, or anything close to it. You keep hearing this story partly because Republicans have an obvious interest in promoting it and partly because large parts of the news media find it irresistible. It’s a “both...

    The socialist insurgency against establishment Democrats in New York emerged triumphant as no less than 6 far left candidates defeated establishment Democrats in races for the state senate. New York Times: Years of anger at a group of Democratic state senators who had collaborated with Republicans boiled over on Thursday, as primary voters ousted nearly all of them in favor of challengers who had called them traitors and sham progressives. The losses were not only a resounding upset for the members of the Independent Democratic Conference, who outspent their challengers several times over, but also a sign that the...

    How progressives saw poetic justice in planes plunging into U.S. buildings packed with innocents. I will never forget how, seventeen years ago on this day, many of the leftists around me in my neighborhood and community had very little trouble expressing their glee about Al Qaeda' strike on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. I had known some of these leftists for years, and after the fall of the Soviet empire in 1989–91 many of them bitterly lamented to me that the “alternative to capitalism” was now gone. A significant number of them retreated into a silent and sullen shell....
  • The End of Rahm Emanuel's Rule Means That the Center May No Longer Hold in Chicago

    The Chicago Reader ^ | September 5, 2018 | Ryan Smith
    Rahm Emanuel ducked out of City Hall alone on Tuesday, his usual security detail walking slightly ahead of him. Across the street at Daley Plaza, 150 activists had gathered to celebrate his vanquishing at an event called "Celebrate the End of Rahm Emanuel’s Reign of Terror". . . The calm, matter-of-fact way that Rahm's rule is coming to an ending is shocking—particularly so if you compare it to the mood of eight years ago. In 2010, Obama's former chief of staff returned to Chicago from the White House poised as a conquering hero ready to assume his rightful place on...

  • Left knocks Schumer over deal on judges ahead of Supreme Court battle

    The Hill ^ | August 29, 2019 | Alexander Bolton
    Liberal advocacy groups are criticizing Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) for cutting a deal on judges with Republicans days before confirmation hearings are set to kick off for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer agreed with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to speed up votes on 15 of President Trump’s judicial nominees, which will give vulnerable Senate Democrats more time to campaign at home this week. A senior Democratic aide pointed out that most of the judges have received Democratic support and were going to get confirmed anyway since the minority party does not have the power to...

    One of the most important books of the 20th century -- it remains a best-seller 59 years after it was first published -- is "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. Marx saw man's primary drive as economic, and Freud saw it as sex. But Frankl believed -- correctly, in my opinion -- that the greatest drive of man is meaning. One can be poor and chaste and still be happy. But one cannot be bereft of meaning and be happy -- no matter how rich or how sexually fulfilled one may be. The greatest provider of meaning for the...

    Editor's Note: This piece is adapted from D'Souza's new book Death of a Nation.We hear a lot today from progressives about how neo-Nazis support President Trump.  In reality this is questionable; no one has actually surveyed or queried neo-Nazis to find out if this is actually true.  Moreover, several leading neo-Nazis like Andrew Anglin, co-editor of the Daily Stormer, have leftist backgrounds.Even so, gullible people go along with the progressive allegation, because they have been taught that fascism and Nazism are “on the right.”    But are they?  We can throw light on this question by examining the mutual admiration society...

    The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, did Americans a favor last week. He provided that which is most indispensable to understanding anything: clarity. "America ... was never that great," he announced. In one sentence, the governor revealed the left's true view of America. This is rare -- because leftists are masters at hiding what they really believe. For example, the left's low regard for nonwhites is well-hidden under a mountain of "anti-racist" rhetoric. But people who consistently advocate lowering standards for blacks obviously do not think highly of blacks, and people who believe in separate black dorms and separate...

    I have been looking on a website that lists legit work from home jobs for extra income (or any income, for that matter). Today's list included a site that lists work for non-profits. It is alarming how many of these are jobs for people to organize and campaign for various leftist causes, including general anti-Trump and anti-Republican activities. I assume that the funding for these "jobs" come from sources like Soros, Heyer, and a host of rich celebrities and deep state types. To me, this is frightening. How do conservatives combat this organized effort to destroy our Republic?

    Well, Unite The Right had their rally in D.C. over the weekend. It truly was a gathering of total losers. Around 30 showed up; proof positive that these fools represent a slice of a slice of the most extreme fringe of American politics. They’re not conservative. They’re not a big part of the GOP or Trump coalitions. The group to confront them, however, dwarfed their numbers easily. With no rumble with these alt-right folks possible, the thugs on the Left, Antifa (anti-fascist), decided to attack police and the press...

    he Left is abusing American high school education in its struggle to gain and retain political power. We only found out about this incident by accident. How many more? Shortly after President Trump’s inauguration, a group of public school history teachers in the posh Boston suburb of Newton pledged to reject the “call for objectivity” in the classroom, bully conservative students for their beliefs, and serve as “liberal propagandist[s]” for the cause of social justice. This informal pact was made in an exchange of emails among history teachers at Newton North High School, part of a very rich but academically...

August 10, 2018 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.

It was photoshopped onto his hat after he went to a Trump rally. It was all over the internet. There were other comments by other student body supporting this and encouraging this.

    On August 12, 2017, a free speech rally arrived in Charlottesville to stop the removal of the statue commemorating Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Then a group of Neo-Nazis, white knights, alt-right trolls, white nationalists, and other white supremacists showed up. They wanted to protect the statue, albeit for different reasons. Then to counter-protest the white (not “Right”) supremacists, the violent left-wing Antifa hordes with their Black Bloc goons crashed the protest, and all hell broke loose. With protesters fighting to pulverize or protect the statue of a general who had headed one side of the American Civil War, another civil...

    Two years ago, I walked downstairs and saw one of my teenage sons watching a strange YouTube video on the television. “What is that?” I asked. He turned to me earnestly and explained, “It’s a psychology professor at the University of Toronto talking about Canadian law.” “Huh?” I said, but he had already turned back to the screen. I figured he had finally gotten to the end of the internet, and this was the very last thing on it. That night, my son tried to explain the thing to me, but it was a buzzing in my ear, and I...

In Six Months’ Worth of PC, Diversity and Leftist Destruction in the US Military, Part I, we discussed several events and policies that occurred or were implemented from June to August 2018. Part II continues with a myriad of examples concerning the leftist social engineering that marches on; without anyone, including Mad Dog Mattis, lifting a finger to stop it. What follows should alarm any American....
