    In my opinion, the fact that Maxine Waters supporters stole an American flag is far more significant than the fact that they burned it This article from the Washington Times includes the following photograph of Maxine Waters supporters burning an American flag: As a libertarian who believes in free speech and property rights, I think it should be legal to burn the American flag as long as both of the following conditions are met:1) The flag being burned is the property of the person (or people) who is (or are) burning it, i.e., the flag is not stolen.and2) The flag is...

    The US-North Korean negotiation process is up and running, despite media claims to the contrary, Tom McGregor, a Beijing-based CCTV editor and commentator told Sputnik, explaining why the final deal between Washington and Pyongyang cannot be concluded overnight. The recent talks held by President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have apparently stolen the show, almost eclipsing the US-North Korea denuclearization negotiations. It has prompted some media outlets to claim that "as Trump engages Putin, his deal with Kim Jong-un collapses." According to Tom McGregor, a Beijing-based political analyst, an Asia-Pacific commentator and senior editor for China's national...

    On July 10, Kanye West shared a photo on Twitter portraying a Chicago Bulls jersey signed by Dennis Rodman. In the tweet, West proclaimed that Rodman is “one of my biggest inspirations…always breaking barriers with independent thought.” The NBA star expressed his gratitude to ‘Ye in a recent interview with US Weekly and also told the publication that he plans to invite the rapper to North Korea. “Kanye, he’s doing amazing work around the world so I respect him too,” he told Us Weekly. “So hopefully one day we’ll get together and collaborate on certain things. Guess what, I’ll take...

    American Greatness ^ | July 17, 2018 | Angelo Codevilla
    The high professional quality of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin’s performance at their Monday press conference in Helsinki contrasts sharply with the obloquy by which the bipartisan U.S. ruling class showcases its willful incompetence. Though I voted for Trump, I’ve never been a fan of his and I am not one now. But, having taught diplomacy for many years, I would choose the Trump-Putin press conference as an exemplar of how these things should be done. Both spoke with the frankness and specificity of serious business. This performance rates an A+. Both presidents started with the basic truth. Putin: The...

    On Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton saying, “We want very much to have a strong Russia.” “Will the Dems and Fake News ever learn? This is classic!,” Trump commented in his tweet, in apparent response to Democrat and liberal news media criticism of his comments about, and dealings with, Russia. In the video, Ms. Clinton states: “We want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, competent, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world.” Clinton made the remark in an answer to a question by Vladimir...

    Today's hearing for sentencing of Todd Engel after his conviction last year in a rigged trial, the first Bunkerville Standoff trial, resulted in a jail sentence. In the end Engel was given a 14-year sentence by US District Judge Gloria Navarro, even though his trial involved the rigged process of evidence proving his innocence being kept from judge and jury during his first trial. The courtroom was filled with government law enforcement and supporters of Todd Engel with federal law enforcement reported to be playing the role of "victims" of the 2014 Bunkerville Standoff.

    Hysterical coward – Whoopi Goldberg – threw Judge Jeanine Pirro off “The View” today because she could not handle someone telling the truth! Goldberg ended the segment abruptly after Judge Jeanine destroyed her on illegals being in the United States. Goldberg had given an extensive diatribe against Trump leading into a question, saying she was “tired people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.'” Judge Jeanine responded . . . .
  • Melania Trump Posed As The First Female President For An Ad In The ‘90s: Which Trump did it best?

    Bar some controversial choices, Melania Trump quickly and easily asserted herself as one of the most fashionable first ladies in America's history. Thanks to an unearthed video, we've discovered that's because 2016 wasn't the first time Melania was sworn into the White House. Back when she was Melanija Knavs, the future FLOTUS posed as the first female president of the US in a Slovenian fashion ad. In the low-budget shoot—with tragically '90s music—Melania disembarks 'Air Force One' and talks with reporters on the tarmac before being escorted by the Secret Service to be sworn in as president.

    The conveniently timed indictments of 12 more Russians by Deputy AG (or should we just face reality and ditch the word “deputy”) Rosenstein who will never see the inside of an American court room probably includes the Russian who “hacked” into John Podesta’s email account secured with the password “password”. Rosenstein was pleased with himself no doubt to announce that 12 Russian spies were caught – er- spying, on President Obama’s watch, by the way, but neglected to include one small detail in his announcement – namely that DNC Chair Donna Brazile and most of the Obama hierarchy let them...

    1) Just one more thing on ObamaCare Repeal: Since only 11 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will an additional 13 million people be randomly shot? 2) Just one more thing on Donald Trump: If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent? 3) Just one more thing on equal pay: If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire...
  • Did the Russians Hack the DNC to Help the Leftists Take Over the Democrats?

    Sultan Knish ^ | 07/18/2018 | Daniel Greenfield
    The Russia conspiracy theory hinges on the single creaky claim that the Democratic National Committee hacks were a Russian plot to elect Trump. The theory and all its illegitimate stepchildren, including Robert Mueller and his infinitely expanding corps of prosecutors, lives or dies by the DNC hacks. Trying to elect Trump by releasing damaging insider information from the DNC never made any sense. The DNC was already a dysfunctional organization that was being run by the Clinton campaign. Undermining its leadership had little impact on the election, but a great deal on control of the DNC. There has never been...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 7/19/2018 | A Kincaid
    BY FAR THE greatest critique of the K98k is its rate of fire. As with any other bolt-action, soldiers could only fire as quickly as they could operate the bolt. Critics of the German’s bolt-action-armed infantry blame Hitler for losing WWII because he refused to arm his infantry with faster, semiautomatic rifles. When WWII began, the German infantry was not unlike other armies – armed with a mix of bolt-action rifles and some form of machine gun. Germany's strategy for implementing these weapons differed. They emphasized the machine gun, usually an MG-34 or an MG-42 (Maschinengewehr 34/42) as their primary...

    Yesterday’s House vote on a nonbinding resolution to support ICE was an unmitigated disaster for the Democrat Party. Just 18 voted to support ICE an insignificant handful voted NO and 130 completely disgraced themselves by voting “present.” This resolution was a rare show of backbone by a usually supine Republican House leadership that has pushed the Democrats over a cliff in many districts. Remember the recent Harvard Harris poll finding that found support for ICE at a 69/31 level. Many registered Democrats support ICE. Speaker Paul Ryan set up a perfect “Heads Republicans win; tails Democrats lose” trap that the...
