  • Dems Assail Trump Immigration Compromise [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 24 June 2018 | John Semmens
    After a week of hounding President Trump for continuing former President Obama's occasional practice of separating the children of illegal immigrants from their parents, they now are howling over his executive order allowing these children to stay with their parents in detention centers. Aspiring 2020 presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif) called Trump's effort to keep immigrant children with their parents "inhumane. When we demanded that children and parents not be separated it was our hope that both would be released. ICE could give the parents instructions to return for a court hearing on whether they can stay and release...
  • Free Trade, Fair Trade, and the Question of the Year

    Illinois Review ^ | June 22, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    International trade has always been in the news. Business reporters talk about a trade deficit, politicians wail about jobs being exported overseas, and every so often, the government signs a new free trade agreement or trade promotion agreement (they are different things) with one or two or a hundred faraway countries. But despite all this, international trade policy has not been at the forefront of the news cycle in a generation; not since the US-Canada Free Trade Agreement was voided 25 years ago, to be replaced by NAFTA, a three-party FTA between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Thanks to...

    New York Senator Chuck Schumer evidently had an “aha” moment following Hillary Clinton’s unexpected defeat by President Trump. He is certain that it was a message directly sent from “God.” It is evident, from his thought process, that Schumer believes the message translates to a push for a further fight against Trump.
  • Drama queens screaming “NAZI!” may propel Trump into 2nd term

    I held my nose when I voted for the Donald Trump in 2016, but at the rate things are going now, I will not only happily vote for him in 2020, I will personally do everything I can to get everyone I know to do the same. He is a buffoon when it comes to social media, his personal history is abysmal, and his political naivete is often maddening. But when it comes right down to it, there are very few current issues where I disagree with the direction or the goals of his administration. Execution of that agenda is...
  • Mexican Presidential Candidate Calls for Mass Exodus to El Norte!

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    Andrés Manuel López Obrador is probably the next president of Mexico, and during a speech on Tuesday he called for nothing less than a mass exodus/mass immigration to the US. According to this guy’s twisted (as in globalist, which is internationalist communism rebranded) world-view, free movement of people, wherever one so desires, whether it’s legal or illegal, is a human right. I don’t know what Andrés Manuel López Obrador is smoking, but it must be something awesome. Here’s the quote: “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the...

    Trump Conservative ^ | 6/22/2018 | Rufus Shinra
    Throughout the entire mainstream media manufactured crisis of illegal immigrant children separated from their mothers at the border there has been a constant search for that one photo of a crying child who would be the face of the media’s feigned outrage. TIME Magazine thought they had found that photo, when they published their latest issue and included a photo of a crying Hispanic child looking at President Trump with the caption “Welcome to America”. It turns out, however, the crying 2-year-old was never separated from her mother, as the girl’s father revealed yesterday that “they’re together and safe”. In...
  • ROBERT E. LEE: OUR GREATEST GENERAL?

    06/22/2018 11:46:12 AM PDT · by DIRTYSECRET · 373 replies
    That was according to my 8th grade history teacher-retired military. The only one who came close was MacArthur. That brings up the politics of the left. If it is true that Lee was a great General isn't it at least worth acknowledging? This tearing down of statues should stop. Educated persons should acknowledge the truth. It's the left that's the intelligent ones as they would have us believe. I see no conservatives standing up for this truth. The Senate GOP candidate in Virginia should start an 'intellectual' conversation on Lee and let the left react. Don't wait for a baiting...

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    The rise of populism and overall political unrest has many people concerned about future of the Western world. About three years ago, it became clear to me that we were headed down a dangerous and chaotic path. This inspired me to relentlessly pursue a greater understanding of history, specifically what history may be indicating about our future. This article is about the most important “scientific history” theory I have come across: Thucydides Trap. Thucydides was an Athenian historian and general who lived from 460 BC to 400 BC. During the Peloponnesian War (431 – 404 BC) between the Athenians and...

    Okay, this one’s a doozy. Over the last few weeks, here’s what has happened: A photograph went viral, spawning a great left-wing outcry over the fact that children were being put in cages (see the photo here). The Left’s immediate response was to: Blame Donald Trump — This was wrong, since the practices at the border are in response to law, not merely “policy.” The law in question began with the Clinton administration (its history is explained here). Ask how Trump could let something like that which was pictured actually happen — This was wrong, because the photo was from...

    Gary Gindler Chronicles ^ | June 22, 2018 | Gary Gindler
    I refuse political self-censorship. I'm not going to exchange information with other people in politically correct newspeak. War is a war, not a "kinetic action," and not an "overseas contingency operation." Moreover, "climate change" of the 2010s (which replaced the "global warming" of 1990s, which in turn, replaced the "global cooling" of 1970s) is as much nonsense as "time change." I refuse to consider the political processes in America from the standpoint of confrontation between the "red" and the "blue" forces. The red color was not chosen by conservatives. The Leftists assigned it to conservatives because this color traditionally denotes...

    Who need Kevin Spacey’s “House of Cards” when you’ve got the US government live in action better than it ever could be written. It isn’t Hollywood, but way better! Watching who stands with honor and who is scrambling in shame in Washington D. C. is a bestseller. Finally the citizens of America are going to know who has stood behind them, and who sold their souls and sold them out for a piece of the missing trillions from past administrations. As Trump’s investigations continue, Americans are learning just how corrupt it has really been in the world of American politics....

    Patrick Dussault took to Twitter and directed his threats to Chloe, Donald Trump Jr.’s four-year-old daughter. Conventional wisdom dictates anything a Canadian can do an American can do better. Not always the case. After Peter Fonda posted a tweet saying 12-year-old Barron Trump should be ripped from his mother’s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation comedy writer did the 78-year-old over-the-hill actor one better. If Fonda thought it was cool to threaten a 12-year-old, Patrick Dussault took to Twitter and directed his threats to Chloe, Donald Trump Jr.’s four-year-old daughter.

    Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders - land developers, an Indian reservation, and America's first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny - where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst...

    Beyond the moral and human rights calamity that is President Trump's de facto family separation policy, it is also a logistical disaster that is placing back-breaking strain on a system near the breaking point. One consequence of this is that the facilities for unaccompanied minors - like the one in Brownsville, Texas, that sparked a national furor - are overloaded because they're now being sent additional children who are "unaccompanied" because they were torn away from their parents. The Trump administration's response to this was to construct so-called "tent cities" in Tornillo, Texas, outside El Paso. Children will be kept...

    The outsider party of Swedish politics, the Sweden Democrats, got some good news this week. A "You Gov" poll showed them at 28.5 percent support, that's 6.5 percent more than the Social Democrats who currently lead a coalition government after picking up 31 percent of the vote in the 2014 election. If this trend continues into the election, the Sweden Democrats will emerge as the largest single party with around 100-105 seats in the 349 seat Parliament. Voters in Sweden will go to the polls on September 9th to elect the new makeup of their Parliament (the Riksdag). The Sweden...
