    The Board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), voted to change the name of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children's Literature Legacy Award because they found her “Little House” series (written in the 1930s through the 1940s) to  “reflect dated cultural attitudes toward indigenous people and people of color that contradict modern acceptance, celebration and understanding of diverse communities.”Not everyone agrees. “When the American Library Association renamed an award formerly bearing Laura Ingalls Wilder’s name, calling her works “dated” and racially offensive, the reaction was swift and...

    VENTURA, Calif. - At least one person wasn't willing to honk a car horn in support of Trump Protesters in Ventura on Wednesday evening. The passenger of a compact car driving by leaned out the window and flipped the bird with both hands. The rude gesture didn't stop protestors from rallying for democracy. They lined Victoria Ave. near the Ventura County Government center and waved a variety of signs. One sign held up behind a Trump impersonator said "TRE45ON."

    If President Trump was colluding with or compromised by Russian President Vladimir Putin, how would his behavior be any different? So it has been asked countless times, phrased in various ways, since Helsinki. Trump deserves the lumps he has taken for his supine press conference performance and weak subsequent clarification, but he is not the only one whose conduct raises questions. If recent former heads of the FBI and CIA were partisan opponents of Trump abetting or even inciting a "deep state" revolt against the president of the United States, how would they behave any differently? Fired former FBI Director...

    The founder of Papa John's said he made “a mistake” when he agreed to step down as chairman of the company’s board last week amid “mischaracterized” reports about his use of a racial slur earlier this year. In a letter addressed to members of the company's board, pizza chain founder John Schnatter said board members pressured him to resign without "any investigation" and based its decision on “rumor and innuendo.” “The board asked me to step down as chairman without apparently doing any investigation. I agreed, though today I believe it was a mistake to do so,” Schnatter said, according...

    In a late night vote, Israel's Parliament passed the 'nation-state' bill also called the Nationality Law by a 62-55 vote. The bill allows the state of Israel to encourage the establishment of Jewish only communities. It was hailed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said after the passage: "This is a defining moment, long live the stat of Israel!". The former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson spoke from the back benches of the House of Commons in what was dubbed his farewell speech today. Johnson said Prime Minister Theresa May was "dithering" about Brexit, but it is "not too late...

    Last week, over 800 of our supporters gathered in San Francisco for Giffords Law Center’s 25th Anniversary Dinner. It was simply an incredible evening—one that renewed our spirit and resolve and reminded us why we fight each day for a safer America, no matter what we’re up against. We looked back at our organization’s history, paid tribute to the lives lost in the 101 California shooting, and looked forward to the promise of the next generation.

    Now, let me say a few things about the current hysteria in the MSM surrounding the Trump-Putin summit. The question that was asked to the POTUS was inappropriate. He is standing there, with Putin, the leader of the world’s second military super-power, and the media is playing games constantly, to put him on the spot. Did Russia interfere with the election? Do you believe our intel-agencies or do you believe Putin? Now, we’ve been told day in and day out that our intelligence agencies cannot be trusted; that they lied to get us into the war with Iraq. Right? Goes...

    Three judges of the UK's High Court heard the appeal of Tommy Robinson's lawyers in London today. They said they will rule by the end of the month. Robinson was arrested in Leeds, England May 25th and sent to jail within hours for contempt of court. He was livestreaming a video outside of a child sex abuse trial involving Muslim defendants. There have been a rash of such cases reported in the UK with authorities accused of trying to hide the cases from the public, limit punishment in cases discovered and even ignoring situations involving sex abuse of children by...

    I'm just starting to hear the first inklings of the concern that Russians are going to "interfere" in the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Republicans. They've accused those of us in the #WalkAway movement of being Russian bots. They've accused the NRA of being Russian agents. They're accusing the President of being a traitor. The former FBI Director and many others is urging all patriots to put aside "policies" and vote Democrat. We are rapidly approaching a point where the Deep State/Media/Democrat Party/etc. are defining Trump and the entire Republican Party as traitors. The logical extension of their position...

    It’s time to put parties aside Americans and start looking at the content of character that is destroying and dividing parties. Men and women who have shown that the people aren’t their prime objective, but self gain by any means possible. What have Americans seen thus far that began with voting? More lies, deceit and corruption that they can believe and Trump as barely “Drained the Swamp” After the move on Putin the game has changed, and what the deep state didn’t take the time to think about, is Putin has documents on Hillary Clinton and the Uranium One deal....
  • Donald Trump has been far tougher on Russia than obama, who is the real traitor

    The liberal media outrage over the last 24 hours is impressive. Predictable and stupid, but impressive. Donald Trump has been far tougher on Russia than obama ever was. Obama was a push over for Russia: Barack Obama sold out our Eastern European allies on missile defense. He slow-walked aid to Ukraine and did little more than shrug when Crimea was annexed. He said “never mind” on his own “red line” in Syria and turned a blind eye to Putin’s intervention there, in large part because of his obsessions with getting the Iran deal. The Russian meddling in our elections started...
  • Why Democrats lose at least eleven Senate elections: Menendez

    vanity | July 18, 2018 | By Kevin Collins
    In earlier posts I have made the flat assertion the Republicans, however undeserving they are, will win 11 Democrat Senate seats from the crashing Democrats. I stand by that prediction. One of the races that will be seen as an upset by a lot of people, will be the Democrats' loss of Bob Menendez's seat in New Jersey. That loss will bring the Democrats' loss total to eleven. He will lose to Republican challenger Bob Hugin. Those who only read yesterday’s headlines probably laughed at this confident prediction and probably didn’t even “bother” to read the reasoning behind it. That...
  • Remember When John Brennan Used The CIA To Spy On Congress?

    Remember when Communist John Brennan used the CIA to spy on congress? Sorry, but THAT is treason!The CIA didn’t just spy on the Senate, they specifically spied on Senators who sat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, the group tasked with oversight of the CIA. Basically they were trying to gain control of the committee by digging up dirt on them, so that their oversight capability was hobbled through blackmail. Senator Mark Udall, Democrat of Colorado and another member of the Intelligence Committee, demanded Mr. Brennan’s resignation:"The C.I.A. unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into the Senate Intelligence Committee computers,” he...

    Let us cut to the chase in what Obama was saying in his ‘surprise-paid’ South African speech Message for Citizen Obama, who is still fighting to bring America down with anti-American speeches made on foreign shores: “We love America’s 45th and plan to keep him!” It was Obama who once infamously lied during the failed imposition of ObamaCare: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him.”

    "Because Without America, There Is No Free World!" And that fact, more than any other, is why the very real devil so much wants us destroyed Many things bear repeating nowadays - everything worthwhile, anyway. Anyone, especially writers/commentators who are sharing their thinking, broadcast, quickly learn that at least two thirds of the audience they last had either weren’t listening or will have forgotten some of what was said by their next appearance. And at their next appearance, two thirds of the crowd will be brand-new. Such is certainly the case on the cyberstreets of the Internet. And that being...

    President Donald Trump's “Blame America First policy” has embarrassed America, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed on Tuesday. After Pres. Trump clarified remarks he made on Monday, in which he appeared to deny Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 elections, Pelosi issued a statement condemning Trump for “his Blame America First policy” — and for, allegedly, cowering in front of Russian President Vladimir Putin during their summit on Monday. […] “The President’s walk-back creates more questions than answers, and the American people deserve to know whether the President really stands with the American people and our democracy.”...

    Do we just let her shoot off her mouth all the way to the House or do we help expose her and her ideas more? Stealing from the tip jar is a major character flaw but the left forgives that crap(Kennedys/Clintons). Now we have a looker that will get lots of free press just like Trump. I say call her out and challenge her to debates where the media will have to cover it. Larry King format. No auditoriums where she'll decline. Who sits across the table? I say one of our own young lookers already in office as the...

    After a 7 day trip President Trump misspoke and said “would” when he meant “wouldn’t.” Nancy Pelosi regularly loses her train of thought completely, Hillary Clinton routinely loses her shoe, Barack Hussein Obama speaks of “my Muslim religion” and not a peep. But President Trump misspeaks one word and that makes him treasonous, un-American…deplorable! Worse than Hitler!But he corrected himself, so everyone can calm down now, right? Wrong. They still want his head. And  somebody in Portland seems willing to accommodate.I would just like to say that if VSGPDT is Putin’s puppet then this must be Putin’s plan for America:...
