    A Tennessee man is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment after witnesses told police he pulled a gun on a man who was wearing Make America Great Again hat inside Sam’s Club. The hat is associated with President Donald Trump’s campaign for office. James Phillips, 57, of Cottontown, Tenn., is accused of pulling a gun on the man inside the store Saturday after making an obscene gesture with his finger, according to his arrest citation. Phillips, who was wearing a veterans cap, told police he made the gesture at the man and a woman with him because of the MAGA hats...

    Protests planned across US on Presidents Day in response to Trump's national emergency for border wall By Aris Folley - 02/16/19 06:33 PM EST Protesters have planned demonstrations across the U.S. for Presidents Day in response to President Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency for border wall funding. USA Today reports a wave of protests have been planned from New York to California and Texas to oppose the president’s national emergency declaration. A number of demonstrations are being planned by the liberal advocacy group, MoveOn.org, and others have been listed on Rally List. “Donald Trump has declared a #FakeNationalEmergency—an...

    Nine Democrat presidential hopefuls took to Twitter to express opposition to securing the southern U.S. border with Mexico through the declaration of a national emergency, ranging from claiming climate change is a greater threat than illegal immigration to saying President Trump is the real problem. After signing the so-called compromise border funding bill, Trump announced he would declare a national emergency to use funding from several federal resources to pay for the wall construction.

    Washington Post ^ | February 14, 2019 | Marc A. Thiessen
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s now infamous talking points on the Green New Deal are the most unintentionally honest explanation of the neo-socialism now gripping the Democratic Party. Too honest, apparently. After her office sent the “FAQ” to NPR, The Post and other news organizations, and posted a similar version on her congressional website, they were met with withering criticism — prompting Ocasio-Cortez to furiously backtrack, seeking to disown and discredit documents her office had produced, posted and distributed. Sorry, you don’t get to do that. Ocasio-Cortez told us what is really behind her Green New Deal. Now she, and the Democrats...

    If you have been walking quietly through the week, keeping this thought to yourself because you dare not express it to your clients, patients, customers, kids in northeast liberal-arts colleges’ social-sciences programs, or your coworkers, here is your validation: Yes, indeed — the whole lot of them are absolutely bat crazy. Smile at them as Nick Sandmann of Covington Catholic wisely did. But know quietly that you are correct in your political assessment, which — go figure! — makes you politically correct! They all are crazy.

    'The Young Turks' commentator Hasan Piker explains why 'billionaire' is a dirty word and warned that a more equitable redistribution of wealth is coming, "by policy or by pitchforks." HASAN PIKER, THE YOUNG TURKS: Technological advances have rendered globalism an unstoppable force so we have to adapt to it. One immediate way of doing that is through drastic wealth redistribution and that starts with banning billionaires. Part of the point of having a society, of having government is to "promote the general welfare." Welfare -- it's literally right there in the preamble in the Constitution. Yet for some reason, we've...

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway in an interview released Friday described for the first time being grabbed and shaken by a woman at a Maryland restaurant last year while out with her teenage daughter. Conway told CNN that she was with her daughter and her daughter’s friends at Uncle Julio’s, a Mexican restaurant in the D.C. suburb of Bethesda, in October when someone grabbed her. "Somebody was grabbing me from behind, grabbing my arms, and was shaking me to the point where I felt maybe somebody was hugging me," Conway said. Conway, one of Trump’s most visible surrogates, described the...

    I’m not going to pretend to be “better than that” because I am loving this Virginia clusterfest of liberal hypocrisy and I hope it never, ever ends. Wreck-It (“It” being the VA Democrat Party) Ralph Northam may well resign by the time this column posts, and his allegedly Weinsteiny lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax may be just-inaugurated and just-tossed out not long after. This is so great. It couldn’t happen to a couple of nicer hypocrites. Guess that Ed Gillespie Deathracist 2000 ad is looking pretty awkward right now, huh guys? It’s called “Alinsky Rule No. 4,” pals. “Make the enemy...

I just want to let you know I took one for the team last night and turned it to CNN immediately following the speech before the polls came out. What was priceless is watching CNN have to report that 76% of the country approved of his speech. But before that, the very first thing they started talking about, they got Van Jones saying that this was an incoherent rambling of cookies and dog...

    The Left’s Growing Record of Insanity To say the Left in America has gone off the rails is like saying the Super Bowl is a fairly popular football game.It’s hard to keep up with the tsunami of cultural and economic insanity thundering through a thousand outlets every day, but here’s a try.  You thought Vermont’s Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders was radical?  Current Democratic leaders start with his views and go further left. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mocks the idea of securing America’s southern border as something only a bigot like President Trump would want.  Hence, she and her party oppose...

    For decades, conservatives have not been welcomed in the Democratic Party. Today, neither moderates nor mainstream liberals have a home in the party. It has been captured by an extreme band of far-left activists who espouse very progressive as well as dangerous socialist policies. This sprint to the left has intensified in recent months on a range of issues of critical importance to the American people. In Congress, the main spokespeople for the Democratic Party are progressive superstars like 29-year-old U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who espouses a “Green New Deal” and a 70% income tax rate. Not to be...

    On Thursday, members of Grand Canyon University's Young Americans for Freedom chapter were told that they would not be able to host conservative pundit Ben Shapiro on campus. The GCU administrators told the students that Shapiro was just too “cut throat” and divisive, according to YAF. Additionally, they reasoned that a Shapiro appearance would not be good for the school long-term, hoping to maintain its culture of unity, love, and respect.YAF scoffed in response.“By caving to an unseen mob and ignoring the popularity of Shapiro among its student body, Grand Canyon University just played itself and deserves whatever negative response...

    NewsGuard, the news-filtering browser extension recently partnered with Microsoft and run by neoconservatives, Obama-Clinton alumni, and other assorted Trump haters, has advised advertisers to withdraw their business from websites on its blacklist of “unreliable” news websites — a list that includes Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail. NewsGuard’s tactic is similar the one used by far-left smear peddlers Sleeping Giants, whose mission is to spread baseless accusations of racism and white supremacy to the advertisers of pro-Trump media outlets in order to put them out of business and silence their voice. Two of the sites on NewsGuard’s...

    This is a civil war. There aren’t any soldiers marching on Charleston… or Myrtle Beach. Nobody’s getting shot in the streets. Except in Chicago… and Baltimore, Detroit and Washington D.C. But that’s not a civil war. It’s just what happens when Democrats run a city into the ground. And then they dig a hole in the ground so they can bury it even deeper. If you look deep enough into that great big Democrat hole, you might even see where Jimmy Hoffa is buried. But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics. Guns are how a civil...

    It has been more than two months since two United States Marines said they were assaulted in Philadelphia by a “mob” just blocks from the controversial We the People Rally, and now a third man has been charged in the attack. The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office has charged 37-year-old Washington, D.C., resident Joseph Alcoff with aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, and conspiracy — all felonies — among other charges. He has pleaded not guilty and is currently out on bail. Alcoff joins codefendants Tom Keenan and Thomas Massey in the case. Both Keenan and Massey were arrested at the end of...

An affidavit filed in the case reveals that The Daily Caller News Foundation’s reporting on Alcoff’s connection to violent Antifa groups was an integral factor leading to his arrest.

  • The Left’s War Against Christianity Enters Final Stages

    01/29/2019 1:23:27 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 20 replies
    The disturbing, coordinated attack on the Covington Catholic School kids, and the school itself, is yet another salvo in the ongoing war against Christians. It pours the footers for what is coming next — an all out attack to cripple Christian schools. That, in turn, will lay the cultural and legal foundation for breaking the organized church. The direction is now clear. In the days before the Covington Catholic attacks, there were attacks on Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, for choosing to return to teaching at a Christian school. Both led by the media and followed...
