    In the midst of a deluge, protesters in disposable ponchos stood outside McDonald’s gleaming new headquarters in the West Loop Monday morning and booed. “I put in leg work day in and day out so that they can sit in this building … so that they can send their children to the best schools, so they never have to worry at night!” shouted Mary Hood, a protester and manager at a McDonald’s restaurant in the city. Protests outside McDonald’s by the “Fight for $15” movement in favor of a higher minimum wage have been going on for years. But this...

    Washington - The Democratic National Committee is eyeing eight American cities for its 2020 Democratic National Convention, a party official tells CNN. The DNC sent requests for proposals to a host of cities and received responses from eight: Atlanta; Birmingham, Alabama; Denver; Houston; Miami Beach; Milwaukee; New York; and San Francisco. "The DNC sent the original letters of interest to a broad list of cities that have traditionally been able to meet the preliminary requirements for serving as a host," the official said. "We expect the entire selection process to play out over the next year."

  • Russia’s ‘keep it in the ground’ ploy to stifle American oil

    ... But a threat is hanging over oil. What is most ominous is the spread of the destructive idea that, because of climate change, all fossil fuels, including oil, must be kept in the ground. Russia bears some of the blame for that underhanded campaign, using social media to twist American public opinion against oil production to achieve its own devious goal: push up world oil prices. With Russia’s help, the keep-it-in-the-ground movement threatens to impede the production of oil offshore and stifle hydraulic fracturing in shale formations. At the same time, Russia is spearheading opposition to the construction of...

    Cardinal Joseph Zen (Getty) has accused the Vatican of 'selling out the Church in China'When Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected supreme pontiff in March of 2013, the world seemed to expect a softening of Pope Benedict XVI’s crystalline, intellectual style. At first, the new Pope Francis’ many gaffes and faux pas seemed part of this more relaxed approach to the papacy. I and many others pigeonholed Francis as a theological and mental featherweight, an affable simpleton whose papacy would be much more about embracing children and washing the feet of the faithful, and much less about issuing encyclicals and wading...
  • NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll: Pushing Impeachment Would Backfire On Democrats In 2018

    Pledging to impeach President Trump would backfire on Democrats hoping to take back the House of Representatives this fall, according to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll. The survey finds that 47 percent of registered voters would definitely vote against a candidate who wanted to remove Trump from office, while 42 percent would definitely vote for a candidate who would make such a promise. Forty-seven percent of independent voters - whose opinions could be decisive - also say they would vote against candidates favoring impeachment. Unsurprisingly, impeachment is a non-starter with 84 percent of GOP voters. And Lee Miringoff, the director...
  • Now N.J. Democrats want to go after the NRA and gun-friendly states

    Democratic lawmakers want to take the state's tight gun control laws and expand them outside of New Jersey's borders. There's new legislation that would ban state-sponsored travel to any states that don't require their residents to obtain a permits before they purchase a firearm. The goal is to send a message to the National Rifle Association, said State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, the bill's sponsor. "Fighting the NRA on the basis logic and rational thinking has not worked," Weinberg, D-Bergen, said. "So I think the thing that might work is fighting them with their pocketbook."

    People stood on chairs with their phones outstretched and fell into a familiar, excited chant. “Bernie! Bernie!” they said together as Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vt.-I, came into the room. Unlike the memorable, mega-events from his presidential campaign, with throngs of mostly young voters, a year and half later this room was made up of 450 fresh-faced, Democratic candidates seeking public office themselves, many for the first time. The training offered targeted lessons from seasoned campaign managers and consultants about the nuts and bolts of managing a campaign. Screenwriters and Hollywood producers in a nearby room gave the candidates suggestions for...

    We don’t always delve down to the level of state and local politics, but this rather curious story caught my attention this week. A Democratic state representative in New Hampshire, Katherine Rogers, has stepped over the line and dared to tread where most Granite State residents would never set foot. She’s not just pushing for tougher gun control laws, but suggesting that recent talk about repealing the Second Amendment is “a discussion we should have.” (New Hampshire Journal)

He he was part of yet another Dream Team pairing with David Cole as co-counsel of the “LA 8″ that resulted in the release of illegal Arab nationals.

Everybody was crying."  (Steven Spielberg, March 27.)“My dinner with Fidel Castro were the eight most important hours of my life!” (Steven Spielberg rhapsodizing about his visit to Cuba and meeting with the Stalinist, gun-outlawing, mass-murderer Fidel Castro in 2002.)Emma Gonzalez, in case you hadn’t heard, is the daughter of a refugee who graciously found refuge in Second Amendment-blessed America from gun-outlawing Cuba. “Better” still the propaganda ministry of the totalitarian, terror-sponsoring Castro regime has adopted Emma Gonzalez as a cause célèbre,...

    When are the leaders of unsuspecting nations going to realize that if Obama would take down his own country, with no apology or shame that he will try the same thing on theirs? Like the typical Marxist that he truly is under the skin, former President Barack Obama is already diving in to fill the vacuum left behind by Facebook and other social media. Even with all of the advantages stacked on their side, latter day social media is failing at a rate that the masses are noticing. The first thing that Communists, Socialists and Marxists do when companies and...

"When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history," he wrote. "You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but will not destroy America... America will triumph over you."</p>

    It sounds like the kind of legislation that should easily breeze through a statehouse, even in these politically divided times: a resolution denouncing white nationalists and neo-Nazis. It didn't even make it out of committee. The resolution was written by Democratic state Rep. John Ray Clemmons. It doesn't name any particular group. It calls on law enforcement to go after white nationalists and Neo-Nazi groups with the same "fervor" as other forms of terrorism.

    Breaking news from 100 years ago: Russia wants to meddle in our affairs. After a century of Soviet efforts to infiltrate our government agencies, our nuclear and technology programs and institutions in our country from cultural to political, Robert Mueller’s assertion that Russian operatives posted Facebook ads to taint the 2016 elections is pretty pathetic. Mueller alleges, "The nationals had a strategic goal to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election." Well, the entire Russian hierarchy has been thus engaged since its inception. It’s ironic that the Democrats have finally latched onto something they can demonize...

    Italian Elections: Pope Francis and the Leftwing Parties Crushed The Italian Partito Democratico (PD), the former Communist Party, whose government was in charge since March 2013, suffered a crushing defeat in yesterday’s general elections, receiving less than 20% of the votes. This party was in charge of the most anti-Catholic government in the history of the Italian republic. The PD government promoted mass-immigration and introduced gay pseudo-marriage and euthanasia, nevertheless it had the unfailing support of Pope Francis. When two million Catholics gathered in Rome in January 2016 to oppose the government which was about to introduce gay pseudo-marriage, Bergoglio...
