    SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. — Diane Harkey, the Republican candidate for California’s 49th Congressional District, recognizes that President Trump “doesn’t make women real comfortable.It may be the year of the woman in midterm campaigns across the country, but Ms. Harkey is not embracing it here in one of the nation’s most hotly contested congressional elections. The passion is far more evident 30 miles south of here, in the offices of a new group called Flip the 49th, whose weekly protests following Mr. Trump’s inauguration drove the Republican incumbent, Darrell Issa, from his seat. Now, it is working feverishly to elect...

    It’s the supermarket showdown that we’ve all been waiting for: grocery shoppers versus pets in shopping carts.... Publix Supermarkets Inc. appeared to set up this battle royale when over the weekend various news outlets reported the venerable chain was finally laying down the law with regard to service animals in their stores. Publix has posted new warnings signs at store entrances and exits telling customers which service animals are permitted in the store and where they can be. “For food safety reasons, only service animals that are specifically trained to aid a person with disabilities are permitted within the store....

    Newly obtained evidence, including satellite photos taken in recent weeks, indicates that work is underway on at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled ICBMs at a large research facility in Sanumdong, on the outskirts of Pyongyang, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe classified intelligence. The findings are the latest to show ongoing activity inside North Korea’s nuclear and missile facilities at a time when the country’s leaders are engaged in arms talks with the United States. The new intelligence does not suggest an expansion of North Korea’s capabilities but shows that work on...

    A Fox News headline read: “Black leaders express ‘profound indignation’ over Dem leaders’ failure to ‘protect’ Maxine Waters.” (Gregg Re, July 5, 2018) I submit that using “leader” to describe these people is an unmitigated perversion. Leaders wouldn’t support nor sit stoically silent while the progressive’s black-baby killing industry is responsible for the murder of over 17.3 million black children. Put another way, so-called “crayon-color” leaders don’t sit silent while black mothers, at the behest and monetary enrichment of Planned Parenthood, have murdered 45 percent of the entire black demographic. Maxine Waters is not only a disgrace to the position...

    For Democrats and their flunkies, history is all bunk unless it is self-serving. The reason history is bunk to the Democrats is because history is a ledger of their perennial infatuation with monsters of the left – Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Fidel – including Putin, until it serves their interest to turn on a dime, as opportunists do, against those whom they were peddling a moment ago as friends and allies. Take Putin, for instance, when Obama and Hillary were signaling "reset" with Moscow, and Obama whispering to then-Russian president Dmitri Medvedev in 2012 while the mic was hot to...

    The Fed said that it now planned to keep short-term interest rates near zero until late 2014, continuing the transformation of a policy that began as shock therapy in the winter of 2008 into a six-year campaign to increase spending by rewarding borrowers and punishing savers. The economy expanded “moderately” in recent weeks, the Fed said in a statement released after a two-day meeting of its policy-making committee, but jobs were still scarce, the housing sector remained deeply depressed and Europe’s flirtation with crisis could undermine the nascent domestic recovery. The Fed forecast growth of up to 2.7 percent this...

    Leftist ideologues live in an alternate universe, a product of their hallucinations of an America that does not exist except in their own demented thinking. The latest manifestation of this delusional perception is Eugene Robinson's opinion piece in the Washington Post on July 5. Here is some of what he said: Racism is a feature of the Trump administration, not a bug[.] ... We have not seen such overt racism from a president since Woodrow Wilson imposed Jim Crow segregation in Washington and approvingly showed "The Birth of a Nation," director D.W.

    On July 6, Gabby Giffords’ gun control group retweeted NPR criticism of the “good guy with a gun” scenario and described claims of armed citizens defending themselves as a “myth.” Giffords’ group minced no words: Giffords ✔ @GiffordsCourage The “good guy with a gun” narrative is a myth meant to scare people into buying guns for self-defense. The truth? People rarely use guns for self-defense. Read more: https://www.npr.org/2018/04/13/602143823/how-often-do-people-use-guns-in-self-defense …

    Because of the ever-descending moral and intellectual state of the mainstream news media, there has been no outcry against the leftists who call President Donald Trump and all Americans who support him Nazis. Indeed, members of the media now regularly do so. Without that outcry, this labeling will only increase; and this steadily increasing drumbeat of hysteria is likely to lead to one result: violence against conservatives. It is not plausible to foresee any other outcome of left-wing normalization of the terms “Nazi” and “white supremacist.” The American left has put itself in a moral quandary: Either it doesn’t mean...

    THE CRIMINALIZATION OF political speech and activism against Israel has become one of the gravest threats to free speech in the West. In France, activists have been arrested and prosecuted for wearing T-shirts advocating a boycott of Israel. The U.K. has enacted a series of measures designed to outlaw such activism. In the U.S., governors compete with one another over who can implement the most extreme regulations to bar businesses from participating in any boycotts aimed even at Israeli settlements, which the world regards as illegal. On U.S. campuses, punishment of pro-Palestinian students for expressing criticisms of Israel is so...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 06/30/18 | Dean Weingarten
    In the early reporting of the Capital Gazette mass murder, Conor Berry, a reporter for a Massachusetts newspaper, The Republican, tweeted that the shooter had dropped his MAGA hat on the newsroom floor before opening fire. It was a stupid remark, not to mention one for which Berry had no supporting facts, which he has since acknowledged. What makes such tweets particularly toxic is that they color early perceptions of these events, and tend to become urban legends and the stuff of conspiracy theories. BerryÂ’s tweet was similar to earlier instances such as cable talking heads speculating that other shooters...

    Thursday evening, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) compared U.S. Customs and Border Protection confiscating items from detained immigrants crossing the border to images from Auschwitz. The pictures in the story Speier cited were from an artist’s exhibit using items confiscated from 2007 to 2014, mostly under the Obama administration. “CBP takes away rosaries, shoes, wallets and toothbrushes from detained immigrants; what they call “non-essential” personal property,” Speier tweeted. “The images in these photos shockingly resemble the shoes collected from Auschwitz – and it’s revolting and chilling.”

    Crocodile tears are flowing from Democrats and their allies in the Democrat Media Industrial Complex (DMIC) over the Trump administration’s enforcement of immigration laws signed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1997, followed by then-President Barack Obama’s decisions and policies. Immigration laws are a function of every country on the planet. Otherwise, why have borders? Which is something Democrats would apparently prefer not to have — or enforce. Because they want a recurring wave of new underclass voters, dependent upon the state for all their needs. Illegal aliens fit that description perfectly. The latest salvo in the immigration imbroglio stems from...

    The blatant use of science for political gain is not new, but it's clearly getting worse. All kinds of "science" is being used to justify policies that fit a particular political agenda. Case in point: Some Harvard scientists have examined the environmental policies of the Trump administration and concluded that up to 80,000 people a decade will die as a result of political decisions that they disagree with. It used to be that such pronouncements were dismissed as "unscientific." Today, it's front page news.

    Public works projects surrounding the proposed Obama Presidential Center will cost taxpayers nearly $200 million, according to a report published Saturday. The state of Illinois approved a $224 million budget, allotting $174 million for road work around the presidential center and an additional $50 million to renovate an above-ground railway station two miles away from the center, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.

    An honest teacher-pay debate requires careful attention to the facts. This spring’s teacher walkouts have spurred renewed attention to the question of teacher pay. The topic is a serious one, warranting the extensive reportage it’s received. At times, however, the media’s progressive sympathies, the allure of hard-luck tales, and concerted PR by teachers’ unions have yielded some questionable coverage. A recent case has been the spate of stories suggesting that teachers routinely reach into their own pockets to spend extraordinary sums on classroom materials. “There is no other job I know of where the workers subsidize what should be a...
