    The failed former secretary of state remains a hashledemaine. Yes, I made the word up. Because nothing really describes the mixture of chaos, lunacy, illogic, and absent dignity that characterizes Madeleine Albright, who once ran U.S. foreign policy back when Bill Clinton was president, famously chasing Yasser Arafat around a parking lot in Paris and most recently declared "a special place in hell" for U.S. women who somehow failed to cast a vote for Hillary Clinton. Now she's gotten even battier as she grows less relevant. The former secretary of state, who's shilling a book called Fascism: A Warning, is...
  • 'Cancel Culture' Candidates Don't Make the Cut in Democratic Primary

    WASHINGTON -- Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro announced Thursday that he was bowing out of the 2020 Democratic primary. The only reason to notice or care is that Castro was one of the more shrill candidates, so it's good that he never found purchase in the crowded field and hence had to "suspend" his campaign. Like Kamala Harris, the California Democratic senator who dropped out in December, Castro has been part of the left's "cancel culture" that seeks to silence those with differing views rather than to debate in the marketplace of ideas. Harris tried to stand...
  • Newly-Elected Democrats Let Their Masks Slip, Revealing The Fascists Beneath

    Since the 2018 elections, we have seen a lot of stupid people electing Democrats in state and local elections, and since the garbage Democrats have the garbage Midas touch – everything they come in contact with turns to a Scat Francisco sidewalk – these dumb voters are now suffering the consequences of their misguided trust in these aspiring authoritarians. Democrats win when rich donors pump money into races behind candidates who pretend not to be the gimps of the hard-left cabal that actually runs the party. And the radicals who got elected pretending to be not-insane are getting into office...

    Vatican Bishop: China Trusts Pope Francis ROME A top Vatican bishop has confirmed Pope Francis wish to visit Beijing and establish formal diplomatic ties with the country, as reported Monday in Chinas state-run Global Times. Pope Francis has love and confidence in China and China trusts Pope Francis, said Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, speaking at an organ donation and transplantation conference this weekend in Kunming, Southwest China.In this dynamic, the next step is to reach [an agreement on establishing] diplomatic relations, said Sanchez, while also underscoring the popes wish to visit...
  • Schiffs Snooping Standard: He says he can gather and release private metadata because only the far right objects.

    Kudos to Margaret Brennan of CBS for asking Adam Schiff on Sunday about his release of phone logs of his political opponents. Mr. Schiff dismissed any criticism, and his reason is revealing about the balance of power in Washington. The blowback has only come from the far right, Mr. Schiff said. But look, every investigator seeks phone records to corroborate, sometimes to contradict, a witnesss testimony. Yes, but executive-branch investigators who want to get data from private telecom companies typically must obtain some kind of judicial order. Mr. Schiff did it himself. Prosecutors are also supposed to limit the release...

    Former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry (D-Mass.) is launching a new bipartisan coalition of world leaders and celebrities to push for an active strategy against climate change on Sunday. Dubbed "World War Zero," the activist group's goal is to unite "unlikely allies with one common mission: making the world respond to the climate crisis the same way we mobilized to win World War II," according to its website. Headlining the group are former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, former governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Kasich, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sting and Ashton Kutcher, the New York Times reports.

    Supreme Court briefs are not known for their colorful writing. Readers are far more likely to encounter austere Latin legalisms than gripping personal narratives. Yet March for Our Lives chose to upend this norm in its amicus briefa legal filing written by an interested outside partyin the upcoming Supreme Court case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York. Its brief presents the voices and stories of young people from Parkland, Florida, to South Central Los Angeles who have been affected directly and indirectly by gun violence. The Supreme Court confirmed earlier this month that...
  • Stand Strong on Flavor Ban to Protect Americas Youth

    Recently, the Trump administration took the laudable step of announcing a proposed ban on all flavored e-cigarettes in the United States. Recognizing that we are in the midst of a youth vaping epidemic, as well as the sudden explosion of vaping-related lung illnesses and deaths, the president rightly sprung into action. Flavors are a gateway to vaping, addiction, illness and even death, and by removing them from the market, we can take a serious bite out of this tragic crisis.Predictably, vaping giant Juul, who is more than one-third owned by tobacco giant Altria, is quietly trying to chip away at...

    The peso is falling and so, it seems, is the sky. Inflation and poverty rates are soaring. National reserves are shrinking fast. In short, Argentina in a terrible deja vu of crises past is hurtling once again toward the economic abyss. But on the bar stools and wooden chairs of Santa Evita, a grill house dedicated to Eva Evita Pern, the political heroine who died a Broadway-worthy death in 1952, the customers are retranqui, Argentine slang for cool and calm. Because the presidential election is coming. And the Peronistas the heirs to the complex populist political...

    Former Rep. Beto ORourke (D-TX) defended his oft-used analogies comparing President Donald Trump and his administration to Adolf Hitlers Nazi Germany amid widespread criticism. It is the comparison of last resort and that is where we are, ORourke replied when CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer questioned if he understood the backlash coming from Democrats and Republicans alike. I dont mean the last resort politically or last resort in terms of defeating the president in November, he explained. [I mean] the last resort for this country that is descending into open racism and intolerance and violence led by the president. Now, whether...

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Tuesday he plans to introduce legislation that would make threats and attacks against news organizations a federal crime. What we have to address is the continuing threat of physical violence, whether by guns or other means, against the press that may intimidate them in their vital newsgathering operation, Blumenthal said at a press conference. It is a priority for me to protect newsgathering operations no matter what their form and the act that were proposing would in fact establish a federal crime when someone threatens or attacks anyone doing f act-gathering or news operations. That...

    Whatever you do, don't call Austrian Green Party politician Eva Glawischnig-Piesczek a "corrupt oaf" or "lousy traitor of the people" on Facebook. If you do, the European Union (E.U.) has ruled that Facebook can be forced to take your comments down, regardless of where you are in the world. In all likelihood, you have no idea who Glawischnig-Piesczek even is, but you should definitely worry about today's ruling and how it impacts your ability to express your opinions about politicians online. I blogged about this case back in June when the E.U. was first considering it. Glawischnig-Piesczek is a retired...

    Whether we admire & support this President is irrelevant, the sheer contempt for our sensibilities and American ideals by Democrat operatives is appalling. Im hardly a drama queen, however, this is actually disturbing me. I can honestly say, that before the election of our 45th President, Donald J Trump, I was disgusted with both our Democrat and Republican leaders. I had invested several decades into vexing the convoluted swamp of Washington politics, in a feeble attempt to make sense of it all. Id concluded that both parties were venerating the same master, making it appear that we actually had a...

    The National Rifle Association sued San Francisco on Monday over the city's recent declaration that the gun-rights lobby is a "domestic terrorist organization." The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby's free speech rights for political reasons and says the city is seeking to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA. It asks the court to step in "to instruct elected officials that freedom of speech means you cannot silence or punish those with whom you disagree."

    The United Nations Security Council wants a global "framework" for censoring the Internet, as well as for using government propaganda to "counter" what its apparatchiks call "online propaganda," "hateful ideologies," and "digital terrorism." To that end, the UN Security Council this week ordered the UN "Counter-Terrorism Committee" yes, that is a real bureaucracy to draw up a plan by next year. From the Obama administration to the brutal Communist Chinese regime, everybody agreed that it was time for a UN-led crackdown on freedom of speech and thought online all under the guise of fighting the transparently bogus...

    Mankinds subservience to the commands of nature provides the connecting thread between Nazism and modern day environmentalism and represents a radical rejection of the Enlightenments belief in progress. It is what separates the New Left and the modern Lefts softer variants from their predecessors and leaves supporters of capitalism and markets as the last redoubt of belief in the potential of mankinds unfettered material progress.
