  • Don’t Make Me Choose Between You and Trump, Mr. Letterman

    The last few days have seen a spike in celebrities who just can’t hold their tongues or mask their hatred for President Trump. The tendency for those of us who voted for Trump is to eye-roll, shrug, dismiss, or insult the partisan stars in question. But every-so-often, I feel compelled to explore their behavior and express my disappointment in them anyway. There’s only one reason I’d read Newsweek, and it’s to read the work of a contributing writer who’s also a broadcasting colleague I admire greatly. His name is Lee Habeeb, host of Salem Media Group’s “Our American Stories.” He...
  • How can you tell it’s a pro-abortion protest? Nudity and middle fingers

    May 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The coffee meet-and-greet on Saturday, May 18 was supposed to be low-key. MPP Sam Oosterhoff was scheduled to show up at the Grimsby branch of the Canadian legion at 9 A.M., where constituents could show up with questions or concerns or just to say hello. A group of abortion activists, however, had other plans, none of which involved actually asking questions or expressing concerns in polite or civilized manner. Enraged by Oosterhoff’s recent speech at the Toronto March for Life, they decided to show their displeasure. A few dozen men and women descended on the...
  • Neil Gorsuch Sides With Liberals — Again

    On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Native American man who was convicted of hunting off-season in Bighorn National Forest. Neil Gorsuch joined the four liberal justices in Herrera v. Wyoming, holding that an 1868 treaty between the U.S. and the Native American Crow Tribe granted the tribe the right to hunt in "unoccupied lands," and that the treaty did not expire when Wyoming became a state in 1890. Crow Tribe member Clayvin Herrera was charged with off-season hunting in 2014, but he argued that the 151-year-old treaty protected his ability to hunt at that time....
  • In coal we trust: Australia's voters back PM Morrison's faith in fossil fuel [barf]

    Australia’s re-elected Prime Minister Scott Morrison once brandished a lump of coal in parliament, crying, “This is coal — don’t be afraid!” His surprise win in what some dubbed the “climate election” may have stunned the country, but voters should know what comes next in energy policy — big coal. Battered by extended droughts, damaging floods, and more bush fires, Australian voters had been expected to hand a mandate to the Labor Party to pursue its ambitious targets for renewable energy and carbon emissions cuts. Instead, Saturday’s election left them on course to re-elect the Liberal-led center-right coalition headed by...

    Melbourne, Australia - Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has declared victory in the country's federal elections after his Liberal-National coalition defied opinion polls and secured a surprise win over the opposition Labor Party. Morrison, who had campaigned on providing tax cuts and the strength of Australia's economy, claimed the win shortly after Labor leader Bill Shorten conceded defeat on Saturday. "I have always believed in miracles ... and tonight we've been delivered another one," Morrison told a jubilant crowd of supporters in Sydney. "Tonight is not about me or it's not about even the Liberal party. Tonight is about every...

    LINCOLN, Neb. — Self-identified liberal voters are less forgiving to Democratic politicians who cross party lines on certain issues than conservative voters are to Republican lawmakers doing the same thing, a recent study shows. Researchers at the University of Nebraska used MRI technology to examine the brains of 58 people when they face incongruent positions by politicians. The researchers wanted to see which parts of the brain lit up when people evaluated fictional politicians’ stances on key conservative and liberal issues.

    As an increasing number of residents are looking to leave high-tax Opens a New Window. states, such as California and New York, some of these state and local governments Opens a New Window. are not making the process easy. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act introduced a number of reforms, including a $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions, which have caused Americans to look into establishing legal primary residences in states where they can limit their liabilities. But some states give taxpayers a hard time when they are trying to change their domicile – thereby establishing their permanent...

    When Tiger Woods won The Masters this year it shocked the world. His glory days were long since gone; injuries had relegated him to forever live in past accomplishments – his career was pretty much over, he just hadn’t retired yet. Then he did it, he came back and won. Nearly everyone was not only shocked, they were excited. Americans love a great comeback story.In the midst of that celebration, something happened to turn a lot of people away from that happiness – the president of the United States joined in.First came a tweet congratulating Woods. Leftists responded the way...

    Progressives are taking shots at Joe Biden, seeking to blunt the former vice president’s rise in polls by arguing he is too conservative to be the party's presidential nominee. The criticism has come from rivals to Biden on the campaign trail as well as liberal groups seeking to put a dent into his poll numbers. They are casting Biden as an establishment figure out of touch with the grass roots of his party, highlighting his work on a Clinton-era crime bill and the Iraq War, among other issues. The criticism suggests some angst on the part of progressives, who fear...

    The New York Times editorial board urged Congress to give President Trump the administration’s requested $4.5 billion in emergency funding for the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. “President Trump is right: There is a crisis at the southern border,” the editorial board wrote Sunday in a piece titled, “Congress, Give Trump his Border Money.” “There is no pressing national security threat — no invasion of murderers, drug cartels or terrorists. No matter how often Mr. Trump delivers such warnings, they bear little resemblance to the truth,” it said.

    Next week is National Small Business Week, but owners aren’t likely to spend it celebrating — they’ll be too busy trying to hire workers or keep the ones they have from defecting to bigger firms. With a 3.6 percent unemployment rate, the lowest since December 1969, the labor market continues to thrive. “This is a worker’s job market,” said Moody’s Analytics Chief Economist Mark Zandi. But Zandi adds that this is less-than-good news for the small companies that comprise the vast majority of U.S. businesses. “The risk or the concern would be at some point that businesses start to come...
  • George Washington mural 'traumatizes' San Fran students; high school may remove art

    A San Francisco school district may remove an 83-year-old mural of President George Washington from, ironically, George Washington High School because it “traumatizes students and community members.” The work of artist Victor Arnautoff, a communist, may no longer be progressive enough for “Fog City.” His 13 panels for the high school, created in 1936, have been deemed problematic by the San Francisco Unified School District. Officials say some the artist’s historical depictions are offensive to Native Americans and blacks. Laura Dudnick, a spokeswoman for the district, told educational watchdog the College Fix via email Thursday that Mr. Arnautoff’s work was...

    We’re probably going to be heading down a bit of a rabbit hole here but bear with me. As regular readers may know, I’ve been doing a fair bit of digging into Elizabeth Warren’s proposal dealing with student loan forgiveness and free tuition, along with the very different responses we’re seeing to these plans. One of the issues that comes up repeatedly is the question of whether such a scheme would really be “fair” to the people who have already put in the work and paid their debts if others who didn’t (or couldn’t) pay those bills just had them...

    President Trump says the Deep State tried and failed to remove him from office in a coup. Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the attempted coup on Trump was a global conspiracy. Shipp explains, “Yes, this is a coup. This is the most shocking violation of the Constitution and criminal activity in the history, not just of America, but of a western government. Much of this rises to the level of treason. People need to understand how shocking this is. It was a clear conspiracy. There will be arrests and indictments without question. . . . This was...

    That famous formulation by Bill Clinton describing the Normal Americans that Democrats used to at least pretend to care about now describes the Americans that the Democrats openly hate – you and me. We’re America. We work hard. We play by the rules. But everything bad is our fault, and the solution to every real or imaginary problem is to take more of our money and more of our freedom and hand them over to the liberal elite to redistribute among their minions.How about “No?” It’s time to get militant, Normals.Here’s a fun test, a little mental exercise for those of you...
  • LAFD Report: Politicians’ Requests During Woolsey Fire Complicated Firefighting Efforts

    “A significant number of requests by political figures to check on specific addresses of homes to ensure their protection distracted from department leadership to accomplish priority objectives.” The fire started Nov. 8 and destroyed more than 1,600 structures in Westlake Village, Oak Park, and Malibu and killed at least four people, making it the most destructive fire in Los Angeles County’s modern history. Ernst did mention that “…living in the city of L.A. or the county of L.A., we have to understand we probably have some of the wealthiest communities in America, and with that comes a certain amount of...

    There’s an odious Supreme Court case from 1971, Palmer v. Thompson, that most people don’t remember and that most who do remember wish they could forget. It’s a relic of a bygone era—one of the last pieces of the Jim Crow system that the Supreme Court ever sustained. On our current Supreme Court, Palmer v. Thompson looks to be having a moment. Its reasoning stealthily drove last year’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii, in which the court’s five-justice conservative majority upheld the travel restrictions that the president had planned during the campaign to be a “Muslim ban.” And this week’s...

    New School Textbook Says President Donald Trump Is “Racist” and Worse…High School Students in Liberal States could soon be assigned a Left Biased History Book. The textbook is put out by Pearson Education and is titled, “By the People: A History of the United States.” The Book slanders Trump and anyone that followed Trump. If that were not enough it pits police officers against black folks. The textbook is meant for AP students meaning the writer intends to go after the more knowledgeable students with his propaganda. “The final section of the book, titled, “The Angry Election of 2016” is...

    In the same article, the Post also reports on a backlash against this amazing generosity. A leader of the Yellow Vest movement says that if donors can give so much money to rebuild Notre Dame, “they should stop telling us there is no money to help deal with the social emergency.” But the donations to Notre Dame are coming from private donors. No one denies they have money. It’s the French government that’s running out. Some in the Yellow Vest movement probably favor the government taking yet more money from the wealthy “to help deal with the social emergency.” That’s...
