    We began the month of May with a necessary interview with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, about a sexual-assault allegation. The questioning, of course, came after an introduction that included the unholy litany of accusations against the current president of the United States. The Biden interview came a few days after a midnight tweet from the president ridiculing a number of media personalities in cruel ways, including the journalist interviewing Biden. And before that tweet was another from the president, announcing that he would be virtually attending Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral the next morning. During the Mass,...
  • 'American Pie' singer Don McLean says music no longer exists because of 'nihilistic society'

    Don McLean, the 74-year-old singer best known for his 1971 hit “American Pie,” says he is not impressed with the music of today. The singer-songwriter believes times have certainly changed since his early days in the music industry, and he’s claiming there is no longer music of substance when he turns on the radio. The folk-rock singer sat down with Tom Cridland for his YouTube series “The Greatest Music of All Time” to reflect on his musical career highlights. During the candid conversation, McLean partially discusses his political views, claiming that politics no longer “really mean anything,” and he likened...
  • John Krasinski fires back at critics who claim his military, government characters promote conservative politics

    John Krasinski is pushing back on criticism that his selection of specific military and government characters is somehow his way of playing “red state heroes” -- as some have speculated, according to Esquire -- without dipping his toes in anything political. The former “Office” star, who has played a former Navy SEAL-turned-private military contractor working in Benghazi in Michael Bay’s 2016 film “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” opened up to the outlet about his decision to act in projects that celebrate the military and said his connection to these types of roles is genuine and not a ploy...

    A man was telling his buddy : "You won't believe what happened last night. My daughter walked into the living room and said: Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, forget my college tuition loan, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out the window, take my TV and my laptop. Please take any of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then sell my car, take my front door key away, and throw me out of the house. Then disown me and never talk to me again. And don't forget to write me out of your will and...
  • Pelosi Throws Tantrum Over SOTU Speech [semi-satire]

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) characterized President Trump's State-of-the-Union speech as "a manifesto of lies and misrepresentations" and tore it to shreds as most of the audience loudly applauded his remarks. Her first complaint alleged that "he refused to shake my hand. That's how demeaning he is to those he disagrees with." As it so happens, Trump didn't shake hands with Vice-President Mike Pence either before he stood at the podium to speak. Pelosi also found fault with Trump's invited guests. "Who is he to presume to honor the last surviving Tuskegee airman?" she demanded to know. "The Tuskegee airmen...

    America’s elite - that is, the 30% of adults with at least a college degree - enjoy one very particular privilege that enhances their life and nearly guarantees their success. And too many of them refuse to share it. The privilege isn’t a college education. That merely correlates with what really matters. And the greatest privilege isn’t material wealth. That sure makes life easier, but wealth mostly correlates with the real privilege I'm referring to. America’s elite have a secret weapon that steers them and their children away from drugs, early death, violence, dropping out of high school, dropping out...

    The Daily Signal ^ | December 15, 2019 | Kim Holmes
    At first glance, the new nationalism of conservatives will seem benign and even uncontroversial. In his book “The Case for Nationalism,” Rich Lowry defines nationalism as flowing from a people’s “natural devotion to their home and to their country.” Yoram Hazony, in his book “The Virtue of Nationalism,” also has a rather anodyne definition of nationalism. It means “that the world is governed best when nations agree to cultivate their own traditions, free from interference by other nations.” There is nothing particularly controversial at all about these statements. Defined in these terms, it sounds like little more than simply defending...

    LITTLE VILLAGE — A 7-year-old girl and 31-year-old man were shot while trick-or-treating on the busy 26th Street corridor Thursday night in Little Village, police said. At 5:30 p.m., the girl and the man were walking east in the 3700 block of West 26th Street as three men stood on the south side of the street. One of those men fired shots at the girl and 31-year-old man, police said. The girl was shot in her lower neck and taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said. She was wearing a bumblebee or ladybug costume, according to the Tribune.

    Strange days, indeed, when America’s free press opposes free speech. “Free speech is killing us,” headlined a New York Times op-ed. Its author, New Yorker staff writer Andrew Marantz, argued that “hate speech” leads to violence. Worse, he claims it can cause totalitarianism and even genocide. To avoid this fate, Marantz says we must rethink the First Amendment, which would include government and private companies striving to limit “hate speech.” He agrees with a former American Civil Liberties Union official that one day in the not-so-distant future, legal “protection of hate speech” will “seem ridiculous in retrospect.” Some governments have...

    Oversight committee underboss, a Pelosi favorite, lays bare Democrat buffoonery. Her right pectoral region is pixilated but as the photo makes clear, this is no wardrobe malfunction. Rep. Katie Hill, 32, sits naked in a comfy chair bushing the hair of a fully clothed woman, whose face is also pixilated. She plays with her phone as the California Democrat, Vice Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, brushes out at a snarl, and the photo’s back story is indeed tangled. Red State released the photo, and others, with an expose by Jennifer Van Laar explaining, “Rep. Hill was...

    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,...

    American colleges and universities may be liberal strongholds for the most part, but there are some outstanding institutions of higher learning that still cater to conservative values. Some are religious, some secular, but all of the schools on this list have demonstrated a commitment to conservatism, either through their original mission statements, their curriculums, volunteer and work opportunities, or on-campus activities available to students. To help young people find a top-notch education at an institution that resonates with their principles, Newsmax — with the help of TheBestSchools.org, the Young America's Foundation, and other resources — has compiled a list of...

    American Thinker ^ | 1 Dec, 2018 | Anthony J. DeBlasi
    It’s a truism that things are not always what they appear to be, often making it difficult to acquire needed information and knowledge. Why then do many who could help us – such as academics, intellectuals, even artists – frequently encumber their messages with nonsense? Wonderland may have been a mind-expanding experience for Alice but when she returned from her adventures she didn’t start calling a spade a club. Analysts, journalists, artists and other professionals, who don’t look at things as they are but pursue a “message” that isn’t there, are apt to invent curious substitutes for reality and engage...
  • Sen. Ted Cruz: Will Texas prevent us from recognizing the heroes of the Alamo?

    Fox News ^ | September 11, 2018 | Sen. Ted Cruz
    Generations of Texans have rightly drawn inspiration and strength from the heroes of the Alamo – the brave men who fought to the death to defend the battle-scarred mission in San Antonio in 1836 in the fight for Texas’ independence from Mexico. These freedom fighters are a symbol of valor for all Americans. It is bizarre, then, that an advisory group recommended to the Texas Board of Education that it remove the words “all the heroic defenders” from the state’s social studies curriculum describing the men who gave their lives at the Alamo. The Board of Education was holding a...

    NICKELSVILLE, Va. -- Somewhere between Nickelsville and Bear Wallow Hollow along Virginia state Route 71, the remains of a redbrick home smolder on the hillside overlooking the single-lane road. Several volunteer firemen sit drinking water nearby. It's over 90 degrees out. The sun and heat are punishing, exaggerating the heaviness of their efforts. None of these men will get a paycheck for risking their health, and possibly their lives. But that's OK; that's not why they do it. An elderly gentleman stands outside of his vehicle along Route 11 West, the Virginia-Tennessee byway made infamous in the 1958 movie "Thunder...

    Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said President Donald Trump’s values didn’t ”line up with most Americans.” Gillibrand said, “I think what happens in November is going to decide what our country looks like. I think this election is a referendum on President Trump. On the fact that he doesn’t represent most Americans. That his values don’t line up with most Americans. And so being heard in this election sets the stage for everything in the future.”

    A former Hillary Clinton spokesman issued a savage response to James B. Comey on Twitter Wednesday after the fired FBI director called on Americans to “vote for Democrats” this November. “Democrats don’t want your endorsement, but thanks,” Brian Fallon, a CNN commentator who served as Mrs. Clinton’s national press secretary during her 2016 presidential campaign, tweeted to his 155,000 followers on Wednesday. Mr. Fallon was responding to a tweet late Tuesday by Mr. Comey, a former Republican, that called on people to vote Democratic in order to preserve America’s values....

    I won't make any assumptions about how many readers noticed I took a three-month break from column writing. Nevertheless, I want to explain why. I needed the time to finish the first volume of the biggest project of my life as a writer, a commentary on the first five books of the Bible, or what are called the Torah in Hebrew. The commentary is addressed to people of every faith and, especially, to people of no faith. I have believed all my life that the primary crisis in America and the West is the abandonment of Judeo-Christian values, or, one...
