  • The attempted assassination of Steve Scalise means it's no longer fun and games.

    Have you seen the video shot by a man walking his dog near Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, of Wednesday morning’s ugly events? It’s soul-crushing. The video captured only about two and a half minutes of the fusillade unleashed by a former Bernie Sanders campaign operative named James Hodgkinson, an out-of-work home inspector from Belleville, Illinois and a committed member of The Resistance. Hodgkinson’s shooting spree actually went on for some 10 minutes, according to eyewitnesses, before two agents of the Capitol Police — Krystal Griner and David Bailey — attached to House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s security...

    I just wanted to share something I have noticed in the wake of the Steve Scalise shooting. If you look at many leaders of the Democrat Party, you notice they have something in common. Think about the behavior of Democrat leaders in the present and recent past like Pelosi, Hillary, Alan Grayson, Barney Frank and Al Franken to name a few. The common thing that connects them is that they all appear to be functionally mentally ill. The same thing can be probably be said about Scalise's shooter, James Hodgkinson. The reason I bring this up is for the sake...

    President Trump is preparing to accept hundreds of refugees from Iran and other terrorist-connected countries, taking them from camps being maintained by Australia under a deal his predecessor struck, without putting them through the long vetting that usually takes place, according to a new report being released Monday. Some of the refugees have tried to cleanse their social media presence to try to delete red flags that could cost them their chance to come to the U.S., the Center for Immigration Studies report concludes. A staggering 88 percent of the refugees have some level of mental illness or disorder, according...

  • Bret Weinstein on Evergreen: ‘it is very cult-like’

    Professor Bret Weinstein, who has been at the center of the chaos unfolding at Evergreen State College, gave an interview to Joe Rogan Friday in which he describes what has been going on at the college both before and after this story became national news. It’s a long interview but a compelling one. I’ve transcribed some of the most interesting bits for those who don’t have time to listen to all two and a half hours of it. Many of the points Weinstein makes here have been made by conservatives many times, but the fact that he is a progressive...

    More than 36 percent of teenage girls in America are depressed or have suffered a recent major depressive episode, according to a study published in Translational Psychiatry. For boys, the rate is 13.6 percent. What are we doing to the kids? It isn't just one study. Research throughout the last several decades has shown a consistent pattern of rising anxiety, depression, suicide and suicide attempts among American adolescents. A 2001 paper published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis found that the suicide rate tripled between 1950 and 1990. The rise in depression and other psychological suffering cannot be written off...

    After entering the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama went on his famous “apology” tour. Now, Hillary Clinton, having failed to win the White House in 2016, is currently on an “I’m owed an apology” tour. In an interview for an article by New York Magazine published Friday, Clinton has apparently moved past “gracious Hillary” and “relaxed in the woods Hillary” and has now moved into “angry Hillary” mode. “I would have won had I not been subjected to the unprecedented attacks by [former FBI Director James] Comey and the Russians, aided and abetted by the suppression of...

    Would you be friends with a transgender person? A full 27 percent of American adults on a recent YouGov survey said no. Even fewer—less than 20 percent—said they would be open to dating a transgender person. The disappointing but unsurprising results reveal a sad truth about the transgender rights movement: Cultural acceptance has tended to lag behind formal recognition.

    Vicky noticed a change in her husband's demeanor when they talked on the phone after the show. "When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different. When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him," she continued. "What happened is inexplicable and I am hopeful that further medical reports will provide additional details. I know that he loved our children and he would not hurt them by intentionally taking his own life." An attorney for the Cornell family, Kirk...

    Dan Heyman, a veteran health reporter for the Public News Service, was arrested on Tuesday night for repeatedly asking a question to two Donald Trump aides on healthcare that he believed hadn’t been answered. The incident unfolded at the state Capitol building in Charleston, West Virginia, where Dan Heyman simply wanted to ask White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price whether or not domestic violence would count as a preexisting condition under the new health care bill that the Republicans want to replace Obamacare. But after asking the above duo the question, Dan Heyman...
