    Australia has one of the strictest firearms regulatory schemes in Western Civilization. It has not appreciably changed their overall murder or suicide or accidental death rates, which were already low and falling when the scheme was implemented. As Australia is an continent considerably separated from the rest of the industrialized world, it is a near ideal test case for the efficacy of gun control schemes. A figure from an Australian government report on sources of illegal guns shows that when guns are tightly regulated, criminals find ways around the regulation.

    US President Donald Trump will host a meeting of world leaders at the United Nations this month to push for reform of the global body that he once dismissed as a "club" for people "to have a good time." World leaders at the September 18 event will be asked to support a 10-point political declaration that backs UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "in making concrete changes to the United Nations," according to the document obtained by AFP on Friday. Attending his first UN gathering of world leaders, Trump is scheduled to address the General Assembly on September 19, on the first...

    Conservatives generally believe that the accumulation and maintenance of wealth is a good thing. We like money, we admire success, and we don’t view those who’ve achieved a significant fortune with contempt. We’re aware that well-funded bank accounts provide employment, stimulate the economy, and keep the country humming along. The left disagrees. If you’re rich, you aren’t paying your fair share. Heck, even if you’re not rich you should be taxed more. To them, the wealthy are like dragons - sleeping on a mountain of ill-gotten gold - lording over the peasants with filthy, probably-stolen, lucre that they couldn’t spend...

    I wrote and published this article on December 27, 2011. Providing historical perspectives on the constitutional ramifications of the war, it has had more than 46,000 views. Perhaps it may provide useful perspectives now, as we seem to be heading toward another potentially more deadly and divisive civil war.Only we can prevent another civil war. Will we?Formerly great universities, once bastions of constitutionally protected free speech, are now trying -- often successfully -- to kill it. Fake news abounds increasingly in our "mainstream" media, which neglect or minimize legitimate news. Our history, good and bad, are being relegated to the...

    I guess this is what we can look forward to for the foreseeable future. When the president of the United States decides to show up somewhere and say words, left-wingers will riot. And why not? The Washington Post is already building the narrative that conservatives who dare to say words are instigating the inevitable violence. The mayor of Phoenix, who is a Democrat, asked Trump to cancel the Tuesday night rally - mainly out of partisan motivation but also because he knew this would probably happen. When a left-wing mob threatens to wreak havoc and assault your police, give them...

    Despite attempts to shame Confederate history and symbols, sales of Confederate flags are booming, AL.com reports. Alabama Flag & Banner in Huntsville, Alabama is doing its best to meet the demand. It’s receiving up to 100 orders a day. Other manufacturers stopped producing the flag after the church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina and the subsequent decision by then-governor Nikki Haley to remove the Confederate flag from the state capitol building. Orders came streaming into the Flag & Banner store. After violence in Charlottesville and talks about removing historic monuments that are tied to the Confederacy, there was another increased...

    The mayor of Venice declared that if anyone shouts ‘Allahu Akbar,’ authorities will “send them straight to Allah” in light of the Barcelona terror attacks. Mayor Luigi Brugnaro made the remark at a conference where he also stated that Venice’s more aggressive approach to thwarting terrorists made the city far more secure than Barcelona, according to The Times. Other Italian leaders, such as Mayor Andrea Gnassi of Rimini, expressed disdain for Brugnaro’s blunt warning to Islamic terrorists, but Brugnaro said Venice’s success in routing out terrorists speaks for itself. “In contrast with Barcelona, where they had not set up protection,...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | August 12, 2017 | Jim Hoft
    It’s been a little over 200 days since Donald Trump was sworn in as president. The president has been under a constant media assault since he first stepped into the Oval Office. The media attacks have been constant, brutal and often fictitious. But it now looks like he has lost Matt Drudge. The Drudge Report headline on Saturday reads: “Make America Hate Again”. Obviously, Drudge is pushing responsibility for Saturday’s race riots and deadly assault on President Trump. It took six months for President Trump to lose his most influential supporter. This is a very sad development.

    I want to share with you the tragic story of the Gregory family from Santa Barbara California. Alexander Gregory, like myself was a blogger and businessman with a family who lived in Santa Barbara. His family originally came from Long Island New York. They were also Christians and they home schooled their children, Russell, Jeffrey, Ashley and they had a baby boy named Chastin. That is where they got into trouble...

    Communism and fascism or national socialism as it is known thrive among its adherents mainly on foundations of ignorance, vain glory, greed and deception. It is deception that the communist platform is built firmly and fixed upon most of all. Islam is also based on principals of communism and Nazism. In their religion it is okay to lie for Allah. This is known as Taquyat. More on that on a later article. In the previous century, Before the internet, before freedom of the press and publishing in other countries and before information became more widely circulated, the communists and...

    Periodically, when public discourse becomes so uncivil, I feel the need to produce another segment of “George Washington’s Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour." As my previous columns have explained, Washington's rules are written in language that's hard to apply to the modern world. Therefore, I try to rephrase his rules to make them more applicable today. This time I will go over rules 70 through 79. Rule no. 70: “Reprehend not the imperfections of others, for that belongs to parents, masters, and superiors.” George has left out one obvious person who is authorized to reprehend the imperfections of others....

    Muslim activist Linda Sarsour called for Jihad on the White House and made a plea for Muslims to refuse to assimilate into America during her keynote speech at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Chicago last weekend. Sarsour, an Islamic supremacist and anti-Semite, is an outspoken activist within the Muslim community with ties to the terrorist organization Hamas. She was called on to help organize the Women’s March on Washington, D.C. in January and is a strong opponent of President Trump. “We are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad, but here in...

    Thorner & Ingold: What about those Trump tapes? Much ado about nothing By Nancy Thorner & Ed Ingold - Did President Trump record his meetings with Director Comey, or did he not? That is the question burning in the minds of Democrats. More important, it had a profound effect on Comey’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary committee. Comey’s testimony was honest, if not perfectly forthright. He confirmed that he had told Trump, on three separate occasions, that the President was not under investigation. This is in direct conflict with statements leaked to the New York Times, possibly by Comey or...

    A few years ago I did an article about net neutrality and government attempts to ban the internet or make it obsolete through over regulations and limited choices. This is something all the Democrats support doing in every facet of our lives. They want to make it a crime to even pee without permission by some expensive overpaid bureaucrat. The internet is the last great vestige of freedom of thought. The one place where we can read play and watch whatever we want when we want to. But liberals and big government supporters and the big bolshevik supporting corporations that...
  • The curious rise of the ‘white left’ as a Chinese internet insult

    If you look at any thread about Trump, Islam or immigration on a Chinese social media platform these days, it’s impossible to avoid encountering the term baizuo (白左), or literally, the ‘white left’. It first emerged about two years ago, and yet has quickly become one of the most popular derogatory descriptions for Chinese netizens to discredit their opponents in online debates. *snip* Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are...
