    Conservatives should "fight back" against the alt-right and white nationalists, and do a better job reclaiming classic terms to stamp out identity politics, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Thursday. “We have to go back and fight for our ground and re-win these ideas and marginalize these guys the best we can to the corners,” Ryan said. “Do everything you can to defeat it.”

    New York Times ^ | 01/25/2012 | Binyamiin Applebaum
    The Fed said that it now planned to keep short-term interest rates near zero until late 2014, continuing the transformation of a policy that began as shock therapy in the winter of 2008 into a six-year campaign to increase spending by rewarding borrowers and punishing savers. The economy expanded “moderately” in recent weeks, the Fed said in a statement released after a two-day meeting of its policy-making committee, but jobs were still scarce, the housing sector remained deeply depressed and Europe’s flirtation with crisis could undermine the nascent domestic recovery. The Fed forecast growth of up to 2.7 percent this...

    A Michigan judge ruled last week that children do not have a fundamental right to learn how to read and write. The ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by Public Counsel, the nation's largest public interest law firm, on behalf of Detroit students that sought to hold state authorities, including Gov. Rick Snyder (R), accountable for what plaintiffs alleged were systemic failures depriving children of their right to literacy, according to the Detroit Free Press. "I'm shocked," said Ivy Bailey, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers, the newspaper reported. "The message that it sends is that education...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/29/18 | Logan Hall
    When Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., gave a speech at a rally against government immigration policy, her message was clear: If you see anyone who’s recognizably affiliated with the Trump administration conducting their private affairs in public, they must be exiled and excised from public life. This display of hatred, paired with other recent demonstrations by the radical Left, shows a big problem for Democrats: They are alienating portions of their base, pushing many center-left voters to the right. The Democratic shift towards extremism is well-documented. Unsurprisingly, the Left’s growing radicalism has taken over the Democratic Party. The malicious parts of...

    The House sent “right to try” legislation on experimental drugs to President Trump’s desk Tuesday — a measure Trump, Vice President Pence and groups backed by mega-donors Charles and David Koch have repeatedly urged Congress to pass. The House passed the bill largely along party lines by a 250-169 [actually 267-149] vote.

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety has...

It seems like information about what Top members of the FBI have done is being released Drip by drip. What do you think Trump intends to do ultimately, and when. What are your predictions of what will happen?

    Peace Now’s latest ad features Yigal Amir and Yona Avrushmi, who assassinated other Jews on political grounds, and several other Jews who attacked Arabs over the years. The Left’s claim is that the violence always comes from the Right, while its people don’t use violence - certainly not that which is extreme and murderous. The simple response to this claim is: Correct! Why should the Left use violence? After all, the war here is between Muslim Arabs and Jews. All that the Left has to do in order for Jews to be harmed is to weaken Jewish defenses. To give...

    The Democratic Party has learned to stop worrying and love “big government” liberalism. The party’s top presidential prospects are advertising their ardor for socialized medicine, free public college, universal child care and paid family leave. Even the party’s moderate senators are now pushing for the same kind of public health insurance option that their centrist predecessors killed in the early Obama years. And the party’s 2018 platform — the consensus agenda that ostensibly unites all Democrats, from Joe Manchin of West Virginia to Bernie Sanders — calls for vigorous antitrust enforcement to prevent mega-corporations from rigging the economy against working...

    PARIS -- After visiting France as a guest of honor at the Bastille Day parade earlier this year, U.S. President Donald Trump said of French President Emmanuel Macron, "He's a great guy -- smart, strong, loves holding my hand." A couple of months later, at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Macron repaid the compliment during a press conference with Trump: "I have to say just for the American people, that our people in France were very proud to have you and your wife, Melania, in Paris ... for Bastille Day." Macron's compliment was bold in light of...

AP reported that police provided protection for “an LGBT pride event” in a country “noted for its macho culture.” Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported that an event organizer “says LGBT right activists want harsher penalties for antigay attacks that he says currently are treated as ‘ordinary fistfights.’”Activists around the world marked Celebrate Bisexuality Day (Bi Visibility Day) on...

    The Alt-Right has been a term that has triggered the Left in America. There are many misconceptions about who is involved in this new and polarizing movement. But it is growing in mentions in the media because it is growing in prominence. However, there are many different sections of the Alt-Right and it is very different from an even newer movement called the New Right. Ali A. Akbar in Medium wrote an enlightening piece recently differentiating the two and detailing who they really are. The New Right is a populist and nationalist coalition of disgruntled Republicans, put off Democrats, contrarians,...

    The mainstream media was in an uproar over President Trump’s statement, claiming that he was creating a false equivalence between right-wing extremists and those counter-protesting. However, Trump’s statement is consistent with local police reports. “We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides. They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them,” said a Virginia police spokesperson, according to The Independent Journal Review.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UshUxz7Lt0w

    What President Trump said at the press conference yesterday was what had to be said. There are extreme groups on both the left and the right. Americans have to face that reality. Also face the reality that these groups will use violence against anyone or anything that will get into their way. Time to wake up and smell the coffee America.

    Bible Study In this crazy political season I decided a little religion might be appropriate so here is a short Bible study. Remember what Jesus said: 'Goats on the left, sheep on the right' (Matthew 25:33). Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat. They did and filled the boat with fish. John 21:6 (NIV) ... He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large...

    Airbnb is cancelling accounts of far-right activists who appear to have booked reservations in the US state of Virginia before a rally that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are expected to attend. The march, which is set to take place in Charlottesville on Saturday, has been dubbed "Unite the Right" by organisers and was called to support a local statue of Robert E Lee, the Confederacy's foremost military leader during the US Civil War. Among those slated to speak are far-right figures such as Jason Kessler - who claims to be an organiser of the march - and Richard Spencer, a...

    When it comes to domestic terrorism in America, the numbers don’t lie: Far-right extremists are behind far more plots and attacks than Islamist extremists. There were almost twice as many terrorist incidents by right-wing extremists as by Islamist extremists in the U.S. from 2008 to 2016, according to a new report from The Nation Institute’s Investigative Fund and The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal. Looking at both plots and attacks carried out, the group tracked 201 terrorist incidents on U.S. soil from January 2008 to the end of 2016. The database shows 115 cases by right-wing extremists ― from white...

    (AP) Washington: The Trump White House announced today that embattled Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, has accepted a new position within the administration. Mr. Spicer will become the deputy assistant to US Ambassador to the U.N., Niki Haley. Spicer said he looks forward to the transition and is confident working with various leaders from all over the world will be much less stressful than holding the daily press conferences he has been subjected to in the first 100 days of the Trump Presidency. The White House also announced Spicer's replacement for White House Press Secretary. Bill O'Reilly has accepted the position...
