    American Greatness ^ | 6-23-2019 | Victor Davis Hanson
    P rogressives do not see the United States as an exceptional uniter of factions and tribes into a cohesive whole—each citizen subordinating his tribal, ethnic, and religious affinities to a shared Americanism, emblemized by our national motto e pluribus Unum. Instead, they prefer e uno plures: out of one nation arise many innately different and separate peoples. Progressivism’s signature brand is now tribalism: all of us in different ways are victims of a white male Christian heterosexual patriarchy—or a current 20 percent hierarchy that past and present has supposedly oppressed anyone not like themselves. In contrast, our differences define who...
  • The Red Decade, Redux

    City Journal ^ | Spring 2019 | Harry Stein
    It may be that the best book that will ever be written about today’s progressive mind-set was published in 1941. That in The Red Decade author Eugene Lyons was, in fact, describing the Communist-dominated American Left of the Depression-wracked 1930s and 1940s makes his observations even more meaningful, for it is sobering to be confronted with how little has been gained by hard experience. The celebration of feelings over reason? The certainty of moral virtue? The disdain for tradition and the revising of history for ideological ends? The embrace of the latest definition of correct thought? Lyons was one of...

    GATEWAY PUNDIT ^ | 6/20/2019 | Christina Laila
    A 28-year-old Arkansas woman is claiming that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden is the father of her 10-month-old child — and she’s suing to prove it. Lunden Alexis Roberts claims Hunter Biden fathered her child while he was in a relationship with his own late brother’s wife (former sister-in-law), Hallie Biden. You read that right. Hunter Biden began dating his brother’s widow in 2017 and they just split up a couple months ago. Page Six reported: Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed a petition for paternity and child support against Joe Biden’s lawyer son, saying she gave birth to his kid,...

    Full Title >> ‘CRIME BOSS’: Closing Arguments in NXIVM Trial - Satanism, Mexico Child Trafficking, Hillary, Schumer and Gillibrand Ties Closing arguments began Monday at Brooklyn federal court in the sex trafficking trial of NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere, who stands accused of violating young illegal immigrant girls from Mexico and imprisoning them on threat of deportation by the cult. Human experiments and Satanism-inspired rituals took place at the cult, according to the mountains of evidence exposed by this historic trial of the new century. “The defendant tapped into a never-ending flow of women and money,” the prosecution said of...

    A candidate’s policy, Bernhardt at Interior and astrophysicists on your ranch Presidential candidate U.S. Senator and candidate for president Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), sometimes referred to as Pocahontas because of a false claim of Native American heritage, has released her proposed federal lands policy. This is interesting to observe as it gives us a peek at the wish list of progressives and their environmentalist kin. Warren tells us “it is wrong to prioritize corporate profits over the health and safety of our local communities.” Therefore, she says, “on my first day as president, I will sign an executive order that...

    The Federalist Papers ^ | 6/14/2019 | Omar G. Encarnación
    Other countries are taking steps to atone for their shameful past treatment of L.G.B.T. people. The United States should too. The New York Police Department apologized last week to the gay community for the 1969 raid of the Stonewall Inn, the fallout of which is widely credited with spurring the contemporary gay rights movement at home and abroad. Timed to coincide with Stonewall’s 50th anniversary, the statement by Commissioner James P. O’Neill said in part: “The actions taken by the N.Y.P.D. were wrong — plain and simple” and “the actions and the laws were discriminatory and oppressive, and for that,...
  • THE NEW BARBARIANS: how the left erasing America's history, culture, institutions and blessings

    “Socialism or barbarism!” That’s the classic Marxist theme, the title of many far-left books, and the stark existential choice posed by socialists of all stripes: Either adopt our enlightened way – or sink into barbarism. However, as with most everything else on the left, this is pure projection since history proves that, intentionally or not, barbarism is precisely the end result of socialism. Really? you ask. I know socialism ignores all the laws of economics and always seems to fail, but BARBARISM? Yes, barbarism. And we’re not talking just about the unprecedentedly barbaric death toll of over 100 million during...

    “Everything old is new again,” the saying goes. Styles, attitudes, novelties, etc., they all come back into fashion, at least for a while. The same goes for desperate political talking points, it turns out, as “progressives” dust off a tired, old trope in an attempt to scare their voters to the polls – that President Donald Trump won’t leave office if he loses.Former comedian Bill Maher told an incurious Chris Cuomo the other day, “One of those things, to take up your point, that I've been talking about for years now - almost three years – that a lot of...

    Recently Sohrab Ahmari, op-ed editor of The New York Post, saw something online that left him shaken. “This is demonic,” he tweeted. “To hell with liberal order.” His moral indignation led him to write a much discussed essay in the religious journal First Things. Castigating conservatives who see a possibility of coexistence with the left, he called for a religious Reconquista of American politics. The right, he argued, should “fight the culture war with the aim of defeating the enemy and enjoying the spoils in the form of a public square reordered to the common good and ultimately the Highest...

    While speaking at a meeting of Japanese business leaders in Tokyo, Trump said the stock market would be anywhere between 7,000 to 10,000 points higher if the U.S. central bank had chosen to keep interest rates steady. He also suggested that the growth rate in the U.S. would have exceeded 3 percent. "But they wanted to raise interest rates," he said. "You’ll explain that to me." Trump, despite hand-picking Chairman Jerome Powell more than a year ago, has been a frequent critic of the Fed, often urging policymakers to cut interest rates from the current target range of 2.25 percent...

    IQ rates are dropping in many developed countries and that doesn't bode well for humanity An intelligence crisis could undermine our problem-solving capacities and dim the prospects of the global economy. People are getting dumber. That's not a judgment; it's a global fact. In a host of leading nations, IQ scores have started to decline. SNIP If we want to prevent America from suffering this fate, we’d better figure out why IQs are dropping elsewhere. But it’s uncharted territory. Until recently, IQ scores only moved in one direction: up. And if you're thinking, "Isn't the test set up so that...
  • San Francisco’s Quality-of-Life Toll: The high cost of low-level crime in the City by the Bay.

    San Francisco is the nation’s leader in property crime. Burglary, larceny, shoplifting, and vandalism are included under this ugly umbrella. The rate of car break-ins is particularly striking: in 2017 over 30,000 reports were filed, and the current average is 51 per day. Other low-level offenses, including drug dealing, street harassment, encampments, indecent exposure, public intoxication, simple assault, and disorderly conduct are also rampant. Many in law enforcement blame the crime wave on Proposition 47, which in 2014 downgraded possession of illegal narcotics for personal use and theft of anything under $950 in value from felonies to misdemeanors. Anti-incarceration advocates...

    This past week I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time finding myself in discussions about “suburban women” and 2020.My bride, a broadcaster I consult, angry feminists on Twitter, journalists from three separate but significant publications, and contributors to my show all somehow snagged me into giving opinions about the specific demographic.That surprised me somewhat.Surprised me on two levels. That it’s such an “urgent” discussion now.That I hadn’t looked at the data better before now. So I’ve done a lot more of the latter. Turns out it’s a somewhat fascinating demographic.Suburban women aren’t really considered suburban. Oh many of them are,...

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.

    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...

    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...

She was arrested in December after she was accused of shoplifting and drug possession. During that arrest, officers discovered that she had a warrant for failing to appear on a separate charge in another city.

    Democrat Marie Newman, after spending several months exploring a rematch against Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Ill., on Tuesday made it official and said she would run again for the seat, setting up the biggest Chicago-area congressional 2020 primary. The 3rd Congressional District race comes in what may well be a different political climate, with Newman’s progressive wing of the party gaining strength. At the same time, the House political operation, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, led by Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., is committed to supporting incumbents, a policy some activist freshmen Democrats oppose. […]

Pop icon Cher has suddenly had a dramatic change of heart on mass immigration after President Trump threatened to dump illegals in the “sanctuary city” where she lives. Imagine my shock. On Friday, Trump said his administration was considering the idea of releasing immigrants into sanctuary cities, partly in retaliation to Democrats’ support for open borders. Previously, Cher had demanded, “Anyone who can must take a dreamer in2 their home & protect them!! I’m ready 2 do this & others in my business will do the same!! Sanctuary.” View image on Twitter...
