    Seattle Is Dying. It's a harsh title. Someone on social media even called it a "hopeless" title. I'll admit to you that I wrestled with the name for some time. Too dramatic, I wondered? Too dark? In the end I went with it because I believe it to be true. I believe that Seattle is dying. Rotting from within.
  • Howard Schultz tears into Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal: ‘Let’s propose things that are true’

    If Democrats thought that turning on Leftist Starbucks founder and former CEO Howard Schultz was going to dissuade him from taking part in the 2020 electoral process or, to their horror, even running as an Independent for president, they were wrong. Not only has Schultz not slinked off into the dark battered and silenced, but he is also continuing to take the Democratic Party’s extreme Left to task, especially its newest rising star, Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). While Schultz certainly veers way Left when it comes to so-called ‘human-caused climate change,’ amnesty for illegal aliens, banning ‘assault weapons,’...

    Why Democrats are Ramping Up Abortion Efforts By Philip Cottraux In the ancient city of Karnak is the Ashkelon Wall, an Egyptian record of the military victories of Ramses II. The wall is divided into sections but the largest primarily focuses on a treaty with the Hittite empire. On either side are epic depictions of Ramses’ armies victorious in battle; the siege of Ashkelon is most intriguing. As the Egyptians surrounded the city, its citizens committed the ultimate act of desperation, throwing their own children over the defensive wall in a massive act of child-sacrifice. This misguided practice seems to...

    Assume for a moment that America fully embraces free trade, and it works exactly as planned: we offshore all our low-margin production to developing countries, and this indeed frees-up our population to work in lucrative industries like product design, finance, management etc. While this may make America richer (in the short term), it will not necessarily make Americans richer. Why? Not everyone can be an engineer, investment banker, or lawyer—most people just aren’t smart enough, and many more don’t have the personality for it. It’s harsh, but true. Charles Murray explains in his seminal book The Bell Curve that human...

    Senator Rand Paul has announced that, despite supporting improvements in border security, he will vote against President Trump’s emergency declaration on the grounds that it’s an abuse of executive power — and he’s absolutely right. “Every single Republican I know decried President Obama’s use of executive power to legislate,” Paul wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. “We were right then.”

    What are "humanized mice" any sane person might ask? Remember the big flap when the undercover video from Project Veritas showed the leaders of Planned Parenthood callously talking about selling parts of aborted children? This was exposed several times. One federal judge even ruled that the videos were authentic and not deceptively edited. Altogether Project Veritas released a dozen videos exposing this monstrous evil.

    On January 22, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law a measure permitting abortion up to the gestational age of 24 weeks for any reason, and after that point, if “necessary to protect the patient’s life or health,” that is, broadening its prior “life of the mother” law to one based on the broad Doe v. Bolton definition as overall well-being. On February 21, the Vermont House passed a measure that “would legalize abortion at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason,” as described by Alexandra DeSanctis at National Review. The House sent it to the state’s Senate....

    The NYPD is warning police officers about a possible threat from the MS-13 gang, particularly when they are off-duty. CBS2’s Dick Brennan reports that in a bulletin the NYPD put out this alert: “Members of MS-13 are looking to ‘hit’ NYPD police officers, specifically in the Brentwood/Central Islip area as well as possibly Patchogue.” The bulletin says that the gang members would carry out the attacks on off-duty officers “in order to gain street credibility.” While the threat has not been substantiated, law enforcement experts say this cannot be taken lightly. “Whenever a law enforcement officer is being threatened, especially...
  • We Talked to Former Planned Parenthood Workers. Their Stories Are Chilling.

    Planned Parenthood employees and educators “celebrate” abortion and do not protect young women, former employees told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a series of interviews revealing graphic details about their tenures with the organization. Myra Kincaid worked as a surgical assistant at a Planned Parenthood in Baltimore, Maryland, from February 2013 to February 2014, she said. Planned Parenthood called Kincaid shortly before she graduated college to recruit her, Kincaid told The Daily Caller News Foundation. She previously worked as a pharmacy technician and was in school to become a medical assistant. Kincaid said Planned Parenthood didn’t emphasize abortion at...

    MILWAUKEE, Wis., February 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Archbishop Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee condemned Catholics in government who approve radical abortion policies but also blamed Catholic voters who vote for “anti-life” politicians. Archbishop Listecki noted that New York approved a law that allows the abortion of babies right up to the moment of birth and after. “As some have explained,” he wrote, “even if the attempted abortion is botched and the baby born alive, there would be a right under the law to ‘euthanize’ the baby. Is this the witness to Christianity and its teaching that our forefathers envisioned for our...

    The Trump administration posted a final rule Friday that would require family planning clinics to be housed in separate buildings from abortion clinics, a move that would cut off Planned Parenthood from some federal funding. The rule applies to a grant, known as Title X, that pays for birth control, testing of sexually transmitted diseases, and cancer screenings. It requires the "physical and financial" separation of family planning services and abortion. Federal funds are not permitted to go toward abortions except in the cases of rape, incest, or if a woman's pregnancy threatens her life. Abortion foes, however, have long...

    MONTPELIER, February 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Vermont’s Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted Thursday to pass a bill many pro-lifers are calling the most extreme of its kind, as it leaves elective abortion virtually unregulated through all nine months of pregnancy. Last month, more than 90 House members cosponsored legislation to codify a “fundamental right” to “have an abortion,” like several other states moving to ensure abortion remains legal regardless of a future Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. “No State or local law enforcement shall prosecute any individual for inducing, performing, or attempting to induce or perform the individual’s...

    “At that time, [marching] from Tirtza, Menachem subdued Tiphsah and all who were in it, and its territory; and because it did not surrender, he massacred [its people] and ripped open all its pregnant women.” II Kings 15:16 President Trump held a conference call with 4,500 participants on Thursday in which he reportedly referred to late-term abortions as “execution.” During the invitation-only conference call, the president discussed recent attempts by Democratic lawmakers to advance a pro-abortion agenda. In particular, the president discussed a bill recently signed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo which allows abortions after 24 weeks if the...

    Report from Young America’s Foundation, The leading conservative youth organization, looked at some 50 top colleges and found 250 examples of courses that question conservatism and Trump. Beyond the inane, identity- and intersectionality-obsessed topics, these classes advance a liberal agenda, malign conservatives and their values, and shut out ideological diversity,” said YAF spokesman Spencer Brown, author of the 25th annual Comedy and Tragedy Report. The reports on the courses, he said in a release, “peel back the shiny veneer colleges and universities place on themselves in the name of ‘higher’ education to reveal a stark reality: campuses devoid of intellectual...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) earned praise from “drug justice” advocates after criticizing a growing marijuana legalization and business model that is paving the way for white male investors to reap major profits after minorities spent decades in prisons for selling pot. She made her comments during a House Financial Services subcommittee hearing this week on banking services for the burgeoning cannabis industry as more states legalize the sale and use of marijuana. She suggested the growing industry was “compounding the racial wealth gap” by allowing wealthy white-dominated companies to gain a quick advantage in the industry. She complained that communities...

    If you’re a 2020 GOP primary voter who’s been holding out for a pro-abortion, pro-amnesty liberal who endorsed Barack Obama, praised Hillary Clinton and compared Donald Trump to the Nazis — Bill Weld’s your man! And if you’re Donald Trump, concerned that a primary challenge could cripple your re-election bid the same way it did for George H. W. Bush or Jimmy Carter, former Governor Weld really is your man. He’s the ideal candidate for Trump to run against. Weld, the Libertarian Party nominee for vice president in 2016, will be speaking at the Politics and Eggs breakfast in Bedford,...

    A Salisbury University student has been charged with illegal wiretapping after prosecutors said he streamed a meeting with a congressional staffer for Maryland Rep. Andy Harris via Facebook Live without permission. Jake Burdett, 20, was charged last week with two felony counts of making an illegal recording and distributing the video filmed during a Maryland Marijuana Justice rally at Harris’s Salisbury office in October, the state prosecutor’s office announced Thursday. Marijuana legalization protesters have long tangled with Harris, who in 2014 worked to block full legalization of the drug in the District of Columbia. A protest outside the Republican’s Capitol...
