  • Chelsea Clinton: Legalized Abortion Has Added $3.5 Trillion to the Economy

    PJ Media ^ | August 15, 2018 | John Ellis
    No one can accuse the Clintons of failing to prioritize profit over ethics. Giving a gross demonstration of this familial trait, Chelsea Clinton applauded abortion by claiming that the Roe v. Wade decision has added three and a half trillion dollars to the economy. Pro-life people have been aware of this for a long time, but it's nice, I guess, to see the other side admit, from their perspective, that there is a price point that justifies killing babies. In a speech given at "Rise Up for Roe," an event aimed at expressing feminist displeasure with the nomination of Brett...

    Xu Yimiao writes that China is running out of retaliatory tariffs against the US and has watched other major parties like the EU and Japan close ranks against it. Before the trade war gets more severe, Beijing’s leaders should seek direct talks with Trump, and may have to swallow their pride Some serious discussions are going on in China as the country faces an escalating trade war with the United States, slowing domestic growth and increasing investment restrictions in the US and Europe. There seems to be recognition that the previous playbook drafted by hardliners has not worked and Beijing...

    Controversial Infowars star Alex Jones' removal from Facebook, YouTube, Apple and Spotify over the past 24 hours, prompting even some of the bomb thrower's staunch critics to voice censorship concerns. Apple removed Jones’ podcasts on Sunday and then YouTube and Facebook both declared on Monday that he was violating their terms and policies with his rhetoric. Spotify also removed all episodes of “The Alex Jones Show” from its service. Jones quickly became one of the top trends across social media with critics celebrating that he was pulled from the tech giants and others coming to his defense -- sort of....

    Payroll growth turned sluggish in July after two robust months, though the unemployment rate edged lower and the overall jobs picture continued to look solid, according to Labor Department numbers released Friday. Total nonfarm payrolls increased by 157,000 for the month, below the 190,000 expected in a survey of Reuters economists and the lowest gain since March. The unemployment rate fell one-tenth of a percentage point to 3.9 percent, as expected, and is around its lowest level in nearly 50 years. In the key wages category, average hourly earnings also met expectations, increasing 2.7 percent over the same period a...

    Has anyone ever called the Chinese 'stupid'? Not those guys. So now they're reading President Trump, and unlike the childish Eurotrash of western Europe, they see a shrewd, wily, chess-playing, Sun Tzu-grade genius, who could easily checkmate them, and they've got a lot of reasons for thinking so. That's the report from a European policy-domo, who actually went to Beijing and asked the local leaders what they were seeing. The report that European Council of Foreign Relations President Mark Leonard gives, in the Financial Times, is well worth the subscription or trial subscription to read it. Some of his thoughts...

    Thousands turned out in Warsaw, Poland and 20 other Polish cities to protest judicial reform brought by the ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS). The demonstrators see the changes as a threat to the rule of law. The EU has backed this view of the reforms in the conservative country. However, the government says communist influence was never fully removed from the court system after the end of the Soviet Union, and Polish independence. The measures give the government the ability to force retirement for Supreme Court judges. Another facet allows nominations of judges by the legislature, as in the...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin responded to criticism in the Western media about President Trump’s seemingly benign performance during the news conference after the summit between the two leaders in Helsinki. The Russian leader gave the comments during a news conference in Johannesburg, South Africa after the BRICS conference, focusing on developing economies. Putin also invited Trump to Moscow when the conditions permit. “I think he is an experienced person, a businessman with a lot of experience, and he understands that if there is a need to establish cooperation relations with someone, then one must treat the current or potential partner...

  • Why Thank You, Samantha Bee: You Just Gave The Trump Campaign A Huge In-Kind Contribution

    I have to say something to Samantha Bee: thank you. Thank you for giving the Trump campaign a rather large in-kind contribution. I would say CNN and other news networks because they gave $2 billion in free media to Trump in 2015-2016, but they probably know better: they helped get the man elected whether they like it or not with their non-stop exposure, confident his antics would usher his defeat. That didn’t happen. Now, we’ve kicked it up a notch with Samantha Bee’s vulgar and disgusting attack on Ivanka Trump, who is more than just a member of the First...

    US First Lady Melania Trump has been caught up in another plagiarism row, following the launch of her new online safety for children campaign on Monday. A booklet put out by Mrs Trump bore a striking resemblance to one published under the Obama administration. The text and graphics of the "Be Best" booklet were nearly identical to those in the previous edition. In 2016 Mrs Trump was accused of plagiarising parts of a speech from a 2008 address by Michelle Obama.

    The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee has decided to be clown itself further by suing Wikileaks, Russia, and the Trump campaign for collusion during the 2016 election. For a party thatÂ’s tired of the media talking about Hillary and 2016, this is a way to keep both issues front and center. ItÂ’s going to re-open the wounds between the left and far left of the Democratic Party, erecting another obstacle for unity as the party heads into the 2016 election. Is the DNC's Trump-Russia conspiracy lawsuit a "political stunt?"Now, if youÂ’re a Democrat, it keeps Russia in the news, as the...

    According to the Department of Justice Inspector General, fired FBI Director James Comey is under investigation after leaking classified information to a friend last year, who then passed it along to a reporter. The information was contained in a series of memos written by Comey after meetings and phone calls with President Donald Trump. But despite what the law says about disseminating classified information, Comey may not face conseqences. According to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Comey may have saved himself thanks to the exoneration of Hillary Clinton. "Not by the standard he set in the summer of 2016....
