Now in our eighteenth year!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” —Thomas Jefferson

“It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error.
It is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.”
—Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson
“Immigrants soon find their place in urban life, they soon adopt, externally, town manners and opinions, but for a long time they remain foreign to civic thought. One cannot make a social philosophy one’s own as easily as a new costume. . . More menacing than barbarians storming the walls from without are the seeming citizens within – those who are citizens in gesture, but not in thought.”
—Ludwig von Mises, Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, p. 38 (1922)
“Just because you do not take an interest in politics
doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.”
—Pericles, Greek statesman, 495–429 BC

“I am certain that nothing has done so much to destroy the juridical safeguards of
individual freedom as the striving after this mirage of social justice.”
F. A. Hayek, Economic Freedom and Representative Government (1973)

Truth is always stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense. — Mark Twain

The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. — H. L. Mencken

To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil,
and in some small way to become evil oneself. --Theodore Dalrymple 


"Economic power is exercised by means of a positive, by offering men a reward,
an incentive, a payment, a value; political power is exercised by means of a negative,
by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction.
The businessman's tool is values; the bureaucrat's tool is fear."
— Novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand

Democrats Remain Stuck On Stupid
Jeff Crouere
In the aftermath of another devastating electoral loss, Democrats have not learned their lessons very well. In the U.S. Senate, Democrats elected 66-year old Chuck Schumer of New York as their Minority Leader, replacing the outgoing Harry Reid of Nevada. Schumer will offer more East Coast liberal leadership to a party that desperately needs to move ideologically to the center and geographically to the country's heartland.

Comey’s FBI Needs to Investigate Violent Democratic Tantrums
Austin Bay
It’s time for the FBI to conduct a detailed investigation into the violence and political thuggery that continue to mar the presidential election’s aftermath. A thorough probe of the protests – to include possible ties to organizations demanding vote recounts – will give the Bureau’s integrity-challenged director, James Comey, a chance to sandblast his sullied badge.

Why Trump is Courting Romney for the State Department
Thomas Lifson
All the brouhaha over the alleged rifts within the Trump transition over Mitt Romney misses the point. I think it is theatre, a distraction by the same man who was able to direct media attention where he wanted it all throughout the campaign. Donald Trump has a plan that eludes his critics, who can’t help thinking about politics the way it has always been played and still do not grasp his thinking nor the range of new tools he brings to the presidency.
Obama Administration Bows to Protesters,
Blocks Dakota Access Pipeline

The Obama administration bowed Sunday to protesters by pulling its previously issued permit for the Dakota Access pipeline, leaving the company building the project in limbo for now and pushing the headache to the Trump administration. The decision announced by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe calls for Energy Transfer Partners to reroute the 1,172-mile, four-state pipeline, which is about 90 percent complete, on the final 1,100-foot stretch in North Dakota.
Mexican Official on Carrier Deal:
‘Trump is telling the truth' about saving U.S. jobs’

A Mexican official from the city that just lost out on 1,000 jobs it expected to take from an Indiana Carrier plant says that Donald Trump is "telling the truth" when he rails against U.S. job losses. Jaime Garcia Astorga, secretary of economic development of Santa Catarina in the state of Nuevo Leon, told CNBC on Friday that "nobody" believed the president-elect was serious when he "made a lot of declarations" to voters about keeping U.S. jobs in the United States.
Pennsylvania GOP:
Governor Tom Wolf Released Electors’ Personal Information

The State of Pennsylvania released the personal information of GOP electors, leading to a wave of emails and phone calls which at least one elector described as “total harassment.” So far none of the electors have reported anyone actually showing up at their home but the state GOP has contacted the FBI and encouraged electors to contact local police just in case. Even if the overwhelming majority of the messages are polite, the fact remains that the sheer volume of messages (100 phone calls!) is harassment.
Green Party Drops Bid for Statewide Pennsylvania Recount
The decision came two days before a court hearing was scheduled in the case. Saturday's court filing to withdraw the case said the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case "are regular citizens of ordinary means" and cannot afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by 5 p.m. Monday.
Democrats Want to Require Trump Nominees to Provide Tax Returns
Senate Democrats are pushing to require President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees to release their tax returns, which Trump refused to do during his campaign. Currently the only Senate committees that can require such information are Finance, Budget, and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. But Democrats want to expand that authority to other committees that hold confirmation hearings, and plan to propose changing the rules when committees convene for the next Congress in January.
Haim Saban says Keith Ellison’s DNC Win Would Bring ‘disaster’ to Relationship Between Jews and Dems
The scathing broadside delivered Friday by the Israeli-American entertainment mogul, from the floor of the annual Saban Forum, an event he funds bringing together U.S. and Israeli leaders and influencers, underscores the degree to which Ellison’s campaign for DNC chief could erode relations between establishment Jewish groups and the party.
Trump Administration Will Pressure Foreign States to
Probe Clinton Foundation

Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein
Foreign governments will be encouraged to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s finances, as many are already turning off money spigots to the scandal-scarred group, The Post has learned. A source close to President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team told The Post that the new administration plans to pressure the U.S. ambassadors it will name to bring up the foundation with foreign governments – and suggest they probe its – financial dealings.
Obama Claims Immunity from Lawsuit Under
'the King Can Do No Wrong' Legal Maxim

William Perry Pendley
Just when you thought the lawlessness of the most lawless administration in history couldn't get worse, the Department of Justice files another legal brief. In response to a class action lawsuit by as many as 3,500 ready-to-hire air traffic controller applicants whose names were "purged" so the Federal Aviation Administration could hire based on race, federal lawyers asserted that the administration is immune from liability for denying constitutional equal protection because of sovereign immunity.
The end of this administration cannot come soon enough.
Oklahoma Senator Releases Federal Fumbles
Government Waste Report

Sen. James Lankford today released his second annual government waste and solutions report called, Federal Fumbles: 100 ways the government dropped the ball. The report represents $247 billion in wasteful and inefficient federal spending and regulations, but also includes solutions to each of the examples of government waste.

Liberal Pop-Culture Has Officially Outlived Its Usefulness in Politics
Glenn Reynolds – Jonny Coleman
“During the campaign, the vote-shaming social media blitzes and testimonials we were bombarded with by Hillary’s celebrifriends seemed grating and tacky. Now their smugness is tangible evidence of a larger problem within the Democratic Party: Its image is controlled and marketed by a very narrow group of corporate interests, tech libertarians and affluent celebrities. A few years ago we’d have called them the 1 percent.
Court Ordered Doc Release on NY AG Eric Schneiderman Trying to Get ‘Climate Change Deniers’ May End His Career
A state judge ruled in favor of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a think tank whose FOIA request the AG had denied. That gave Schneiderman 30 days to cough up documents concerning his agreements with other states’ AGs, and with a group of green activists, about their joint persecution of ExxonMobile and other entities for supposed “climate fraud.” The think tank’s lawyers believe the documents could show improper conduct by the AGs. If they do, Schneiderman faces serious trouble.
4 Resign from VA Facility After Veteran with Maggots in Wound Dies
Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs executive director Myles Deering said the maggots were discovered while the patient was alive at the facility in Talihina, about 130 miles southeast of Tulsa. Deering said the maggots were not the cause of his death. Deering said the veteran came to the center with an infection and died of sepsis, the Tulsa World reported.
Texas Moves a Step Closer to Making the Right to Bear Arms
More Affordable with Free License to Carry Fee

Wednesday afternoon, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick announced the pre-filing of a Texas Senate Bill that, if passed, would eliminate fees associated with obtaining a license to carry (LTC) permit in the Lone Star State. Currently, the cost to obtain a permit is $140 and to renew is $70.
‘Fixer Upper’ Hosts’ Pastor Responds to Buzzfeed’s Public Shaming
It's not exactly clear why Buzzfeed chose to publicly shame Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines. Nor do we know why the online publication attacked the Christian couple's church. Maybe author Kate Aurthur got a speeding ticket while driving through Waco, Texas? Or maybe she dislikes shiplap? Or perhaps Buzzfeed simply employs virulent, anti-Christian bigots?
Indoctrinating the Young in Hate Factories
Ray DiLorenzo
If you want to learn to hate America, your nearest public school or college is waiting for you. If it is a university you want to attend, don't worry about the cost, the government (taxpayers) will pick up the tab as student loans are about to be forgiven to the tune of $108 billion and will probably go much higher. Our schools across the country have created and nurtured millions of godless, America-hating, angry, statist, whiny, cry babies and we will all be paying dearly for it, now and in the future.
Oops! Too Late: Nobel Secretary Regrets Obama Peace Prize
Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama. Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award. Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised.
Castro’s Millions: Fidel’s Family Expected to Secure
Estimated $900 Million Estate

While fellow communists and assorted global leftist elites are using the occasion of his death to praise Fidel Castro as a hero of the poor, reports from both defectors within Castro’s world and journalists using publicly available information have estimated the Castro family fortune to be in the millions.
Italian PM Matteo Renzi to Resign In Wake of Referendum Defeat
Mr Renzi had staked his future on a "Yes" vote, vowing to quit if voters rejected his plans to reduce the role of the country's Senate and take back powers from regional authorities. The result plunges the country into political turmoil, with the effects likely to be felt on the markets and across the rest of Europe.
Bank of England to Change Currency to Make Vegans Happy
The Bank of England said its supplier of currency, Innovia, is working toward removing the use of animal fat in the production of its new plastic five pound note after objection raised by thousands of vegetarians. The bank said it did not know about traces of tallow, which contains animal fats, in the production of the currency when it signed the contract with Innovia.
This Forgotten WWI Antiseptic Could Be the Key to Fighting Antibiotic Resistance and the Common Cold
An antiseptic used in WWI hospitals has been revived after seven decades, and is showing great promise in preventing the common cold, and could be the key to fighting antibiotic resistance – one of the biggest ever threats to global health. The simple antiseptic, made from coal tar, was replaced by penicillin after the war, and fights both viral and bacterial infections in an entirely different way – one that could prevent pathogens from mutating to outsmart our medications.

Media Falsely Spins Trump’s NYT Climate Comments –
Trump Cited Climategate, Restated Skepticism of ‘global warming’

Marc Morano
Heartland Institute President Joe Bast had this to say about the full transcript of Trump’s meeting: “This is reassuring. The Left wants to drive wedges between Trump and his base by spinning anything he says as “retreating from campaign promises.” But expressing nuance and avoiding confrontation with determined foes who buy ink by the barrel is not retreating.”
9/11 Mastermind: Al Qaeda Favors 'immigration' to Defeat USA
Paul Bedard
The jailed architect of 9/11 revealed that al Qaeda's plan to kill the United States was not through military attacks but immigration and "outbreeding nonmuslims" who would use the legal system to install Sharia law, according to a blockbuster new book. In Enhanced Interrogation, CIA contractor James Mitchell tells for the first time about his role interrogating al Qaeda principles, many like KSM still jailed at Guantanamo Bay.

2016 election map by county
There’s no clear evidence that the voting method used in a county – by machine or by paper – had an effect on the vote. Anyone making allegations of a possible massive electoral hack should provide proof, and we can’t find any. But it’s not even clear the group of computer scientists and election lawyers are making these claims.
Report: Consumer Confidence Soars 8.4 Points
According to the latest report, in some cases, Americans are the most hopeful they have been in more than a decade. For the first time since 2006, 37 percent of households said they expect their personal finances to improve in 2017. Also hitting decade highs: real income expectations, as wage growth continues to gain strength in a broadening swath of the economy.

Trump Win Gives Holiday Shoppers Green Light to Spend
Forget a white Christmas. Consumers across America are seeing green after holiday dreams have been sweetened by bigger budgets and boosted confidence levels. Optimism about the end of a tumultuous election year and record highs on Wall Street – a run-up that's been dubbed the "Trump rally" – have helped prime Main Street America's pocketbooks for more robust levels of holiday spending.
The Facts About the Dakota Access Pipeline
That Protesters Don't Want You to Know

Rep. Kevin Cramer
For more than three months, thousands of protesters, most of them from out of state, have illegally camped on federal land in Morton County, North Dakota, to oppose the construction of a legally permitted oil pipeline project that is 85 percent complete. The celebrities, political activists, and anti-oil extremists who are blocking the pipeline's progress are doing so based on highly charged emotions rather than actual facts on the ground.
Press is Largely Ignoring Recent Awesome Fossil Fuel-Related News;
EPA Found to be Source of Contaminated Ground Water

Since Donald Trump's election, environmental zealots have mostly had a very rough two weeks... First, in Wyoming, just two days after the election, their "fracking is bad" Exhibit A in Pavillion, Wyoming was completely discredited. Second, in Texas this week, a huge oil discovery was reported – so big and unprecedented that the only commenter wrote: "This ... should be front-page news given its economic and geopolitical impact" – but of course it's not.

Solar’s Darkening Sky
Jack Dini
Dozens of solar focused companies around the globe have disappeared through bankruptcy, insolvency, or just shutting their doors since 2009 when prices of solar panels plunged as competition from China increased. In addition, other solar installations have not delivered their promised capacity or have experienced a variety of mishaps... Despite incentives, solar energy technology continues to remain a high-cost energy operation making up just 1% of U.S. and global energy generation.
Researchers Have Found a Troubling New Cause of Death for
Middle-Aged White Americans – Chinese Trade

White Americans without a college degree are becoming more likely to die in middle age, reversing decades of progress toward better health... In 2000, Clinton and Congress made lower tariffs permanent… Researchers Pierce and Schott suggest that as competition with Chinese manufacturing forced U.S. factories to close, many of the Americans who were laid off never got their lives back together. Instead, they fell into depression or addiction.

The Real Sickness at the Heart of American Culture
John Hawkins
People don't like to talk about America's culture for the same reason that a man who just had a heart attack doesn't want to discuss the double bacon cheeseburger he's eating. He knows what he's doing is killing him, but it's easier not to deal with it. We're in the same boat.
Obama Attempts to Distort His Legacy
Roger Aronoff
Pass this junker to Trump
“As I told my staff, we should be very proud that their work has already ensured that when we turn over the keys, the car’s in pretty good shape,” Obama told the press on November 14. He then pointed to the jobs market, poverty levels, health insurance, and curbing carbon emissions. “…[M]y goal is on January 21, America’s in the strongest position possible and hopefully there’s an opportunity for the next president to build on that,” he said.
Obama's Incomprehensible Vision
James Raider
America resoundingly rejected the Obama agenda, handing the Republican Party the strongest presence and power in government across America it has had since the Depression, and yet Obama travels the world in denial. Denial and blame. Denial, blame, and a bewildered vision.
‘Sanctuary City’ Philly Released Dominican Accused of Child Rape
An accused child rapist and Dominican national was released out of custody by Philadelphia police, ignoring federal immigration officials' request to hand over the man. "After confirming his identity using biometric data, an ICE detainer was lodged against Perez Pilarte while he was detained at the Philadelphia Curran Fromhold Correctional Facility in July 2015," ICE stated in the release."

Cut-off of Federal Funds to Sanctuary Cities is Possible Immediately Upon Inauguration of President Trump
Thomas Lifson
Thanks to a little noticed action of Texas congressman John Culberson taken last July, President-Elect Trump will able to cut off federal law enforcement funding to nine sanctuary cities, plus the entire state of California, immediately upon taking the oath of office... Because of the foresight of a Texas Congressman, President Trump will be able to end certain funding to the largest sanctuary cities plus the entire state of California on his first day as President.

Kansas Killing, Abduction Suspect Living in U.S. Illegally
A Texas woman accused of killing a mother and taking her baby was in the U.S. illegally when she was released from a Kansas jail this summer before immigration officials had a chance to request she be held, law enforcement authorities said. The agency would have asked that Yesenia Sesmas, a Mexican national, be detained if she had still been in jail, ICE spokesman Rusnok said.

195 Per Day – Feds Release 6,051 Illegal Immigrant Kids

The first month of this fiscal year, October, saw 6,051 unaccompanied minors – or an average of about 195 a day – released to sponsors living in the U.S., according to figures released this week by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). Most sponsors are family members and in the country illegally themselves.
Illegal Immigrants Pose as Families,
Tell Tales of Woe to Gain Entry to U.S.

Illegal immigrants are trying a bold new strategy to sneak into the U.S. – pairing up with unrelated children and pretending to be families, fabricating tales of heart-rending woes back home to try to convince border agents to admit them into the country, according to internal Homeland Security documents reviewed by The Washington Times. That is one of the tactics feeding the surge of illegal immigrants in recent months, which the Border Patrol's intelligence unit says was part of a pre-election rush to try to get into the country.

Experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change. But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early 1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result of global warming.

He began by sharing his distaste for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, saying: 'Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all of that type of stuff.'
Obama Team In Despair Over Flynn Pick
Marc A. Thiessen
So why are Obama aides so upset about Flynn? Simple. Because he warned them about the danger of Barack Obama's Iraq withdrawal and predicted the rise of the Islamic State militant group. And then, after leaving his post as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), he called out Obama for failing to heed that advice… Everything Flynn's DIA predicted came true, and he was pushed out because people in the White House didn't want to hear it.
Dems' Smear Campaign Against Sessions Likely to Backfire
Paul Mirengoff
The electorate has some sympathy both for illegal immigrants and affirmative action. But it has little sympathy for branding as racist public figures who take a hard line on these matters. Moreover, allegations of racism against this particular public figure – Sen. Sessions – cannot be sustained. Now comes a powerful character witness to take on the racism slander.
Meet Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Pick for Education Secretary
President-elect Donald Trump has selected billionaire philanthropist Betsy DeVos, a relatively unknown figure on the national scene, to head the U.S. Department of Education.

This Lawsuit Could Shatter ALL Federal Gun Control Laws
Bob Owens
The federal trial of a Kansas man for manufacturing and selling firearms and silencers without a federal license could very well turn out to be the pivotal case that not only challenges the constitutionality of the National Firearms Act of 1934, but also every federal firearms law ever passed in a battle that will determine whether it is the states or the federal government that has the constitutional right to pass gun laws.

Chesimard, convicted in 1977 of killing State Police officer Werner Foerster four years earlier, escaped to Cuba in 1979, where she remains in Cuba’s protective custody. Several officials – including New Jersey State Police leaders – criticized President Barack Obama in late 2014 for beginning efforts to normalize relations with Cuba without securing Chesmiard’s extradition.
LGBT Rally Members Ask LGBT Cop to Leave Because
She Was Wearing Police Uniform

Safe spaces have gotten so safe that even members of the groups they’re hoping to keep safe can be excluded for fear of triggering others. This was what happened earlier this month to San Diego Police Officer Christine Garcia. Garcia was asked to leave a Transgender Day of Remembrance event even though she is transgendered. Why was she asked to leave? Because she showed up to the event wearing her police uniform.

The Exhausted Epithets of the Left
George Neumayr
Barack Obama’s signature phrase, “the audacity of hope,” came from a black nationalist, Jeremiah Wright. Obama stocked his administration with black nationalists, delivered speeches to openly separatist black colleges and associations, rolled out the red carpet for Al Sharpton, encouraged the reverse racism of “Black Lives Matter,” and rationalized the behavior of athletes who protested the American flag.
7 Things Sessions Can Do Immediately to
Restore the Rule of Law at Justice

Daniel Horowitz
There is no part of the federal government that is more vital to our system of government, yet more damaged by the Obama years, than the Department of Justice. While some systemic reforms will have to come from Congress, there are some immediate steps that Sessions can take on day one to implement triage on the rule of law.
The Electoral College is Vital to Freedom and Peace
Tom Mullen
Retiring U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) filed legislation proposing an amendment to the Constitution abolishing the electoral college. She and many across the United States believe the president should be chosen by direct popular vote. This would be a huge mistake. The electoral college is vital to freedom in a republic the size of the United States.

Why the 2016 Election Proves America Needs the Electoral College
Jarrett Stepman
Progressives are taking aim at the Electoral College and want to replace it with a national popular vote. This would both remove the indirect mediation of the electors' votes, and more damagingly, eliminate the power of states in choosing a president. The 2016 presidential election is a perfect illustration of why America needs to keep this institution in place, regardless of whether one supported the winner or the loser in 2016.
Foundation Calls on DOJ to Prosecute Anti-Trump Attackers;
Chance to Change Perception That it Only Protects Certain Americans

An election integrity group is asking the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division to investigate and prosecute those involved in a violent mob attack in Chicago after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. One day after the presidential election, David Wilcox was thrown to the ground and viciously attacked after he exited his vehicle to get insurance information from a driver who scraped his car.
The West is Finally Fighting Back Against Militant Islam
Rev. Peter Mullen
General Michael Flynn has been offered the post of national security adviser in Donald Trump’s administration. Flynn is a senior intelligence officer and during the election campaign he was vociferous in his denunciation of Hillary Clinton, even leading the chants for her to be locked up. He is also a long-standing critic of Obama’s military policies – or what he regards as the lack of them.
Bolton Warns Obama On Israel Action at UN
Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton said during an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis that there is "a lot of speculation over in Turtle Bay at U.N. headquarters about resolutions that recognize a Palestinian state or that try and set a boundary for Israel based on the 1967 ceasefire lines." "I think that’d be very inadvisable for the president to do that," he said.
Rule Change Pushed by Harry Reid Could
Allow Trump to Get All of His Appointments Confirmed

A senate rule change championed by outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid could leave Democrats powerless to stop any of President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet appointments. In 2013, Sen. Reid and other Democrats pushed forward with a rule change dubbed the “nuclear option” to eliminate filibusters for all presidential nominations except Supreme Court justices.

Violating Federal Law and Her Actions May Be Void

Hans von Spakovsky   
Vanita Gupta, the acting head of the U.S. Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, apparently has been working in violation of federal law for more than a year and a half. That may render all of the official actions she has taken during that period – lawsuits, demand letters, hires, you name it – "void" and of no effect. This defies the Senate, the Constitution ,and federal law.
No, Trump Didn't Request Top Secret Clearance for His Kids
Despite reports suggesting the contrary, a transition team official says Donald Trump did not request or begin paperwork to have his children gain top-level security clearance, according to a pool report.

What the Dakota Pipeline Protesters Aren't Telling You
Shawn McCoy
With the help of celebrities and professional activists, protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota attracted international attention. The shouting and violence have drawn sympathy from people who are hearing only one side of the story – the one told by activists. Were the full story to be heard, much, if not all, of that sympathy would vanish. The contrast between the protesters' claims and the facts on record is stunning.

From Enron to Bernie Madoff, at the end of every great American financial scandal, the totality of the perpetrators' greed seems to be matched only by the public's incredulity at how such a thing could be allowed to happen. And thanks to Elon Musk, there's a good chance we may all be asking this question again soon.
Classless Dems: Idaho Trump Electors Report 'Barrage' of
Harassing Messages Urging Them to Change Votes

Idaho's four presidential electors say they have been getting harassing phone calls, emails and Facebook messages urging them to become "faithless electors" and not cast their votes for Donald Trump in the electoral college. "A lot of 'em use bad, rough language," said Layne Bangerter, one of the four electors. "Nothing I feel intimidated over. But we're watching it very closely. They've got our home phone numbers, our cell numbers, our emails, our Facebook. We're just getting an orchestrated barrage from the left."

Communists and Socialists Going Bonkers Over Trump

If you’re in the mood for a little levity this weekend, take a gander at the websites of Communist Party USA, People’s World, and the Democratic Socialists of America (among other leftists-in-arms), where they are going absolutely bonkers over Donald Trump’s big win.

Koskinen's IRS at it Again:
Tea Party Groups Denied Tax-exempt Status After Nearly 7 Years

The Albuquerque Tea Party has received a decision on their request for tax-exempt status. It came just a little later than expected. How much later? Almost seven years after applying the tea party group got denied tax-exempt status. Even now that decision came with the IRS dragging it's heels. The IRS had to be forced to deal with three Tea Party groups that were very much delayed under orders of a federal judge.
Labor Department's Persuader Rule Dealt Deathblow
A Texas judge permanently blocked one of the Obama administration's most controversial labor policies, which critics say would have hampered the First Amendment rights of employers. The new rule would have forced employers to disclose any legal advice they receive regarding unionization campaigns, even if those lawyers and consultants did not interact with workers or publicly advocate in the workplace – the previous disclosure standard.

It all began a little more than 10 years ago in a basement in Westwood: a small army of young employees in T-shirts and shorts huddled over their laptops, determined to launch a news site that would shake up the world of conservative media. No one’s laughing anymore. As Donald Trump prepares to take office as president, the Breitbart News Network stands poised to become one of the most influential conservative media companies in the country.
The Ellison Challenge

The Democratic Party's move toward antisemitism, a move made apparent through Ellison's rise, is one movement the Jews mustn't lead. The Democratic Party stands at a crossroads today. And so do the Jewish Democrats. Out of power in the White House and both houses of Congress, the Democrats must decide what sort of party they will be in the post-Obama world.

Foes Pile on Ellison in DNC Chair Fight
Daniel Strauss
Keith Ellison, an early favorite to become the next Democratic National Committee chairman, has hit his first roadblock. The Minnesota congressman and Bernie Sanders ally is facing growing resistance to the idea of electing another party chairman who is a sitting member of Congress.

Louis Farrakhan's First Congressman
Why was the press so incurious about the past of Keith Ellison?

Scott W. Johnson
Ellison's Muslim faith has generated no controversy in the campaign. On the contrary, it has served to insulate aspects of his public record from close scrutiny in a city whose dominant news organ, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, is a paragon of political correctness. With the exception of columnist Katherine Kersten, the Star Tribune has scrupulously avoided examining Ellison's long train of troubling associations, foremost among them his ties to the Nation of Islam.

NOAA Temperature Fraud – Claimed Record Heat in
Numerous Locations in Africa and the Middle East

This is a remarkable feat, given that they don't have any actual thermometers in those regions. In fact, NOAA doesn't have any thermometers on about half of the land surface. Satellite temperatures showed that September was close to normal in those regions which NOAA declared to be record hot. Not only is the land data fake, but much of the ocean data is fake too.
Hundreds Support Christian Florist
Fined For Refusing To Work Gay Wedding

Hundreds of supporters cheered on the Washington Christian grandmother and florist who was fined for declining to make floral arrangements for a same-sex wedding as she appeared before the state's Supreme Court on Tuesday for oral arguments in her appeal of an unfavorable lower court ruling.
The Obama Legacy – Republicans Now Control
Record Number of State Legislative Chambers

Republicans added to their historic 2014 gains in the nation's state legislatures with the addition of five state House chambers and two state Senate chambers in last week's election, while Democratic control was reduced to levels not seen since the Civil War.
Republican Voters Fight Election Backlash by Telling Starbucks Baristas Their Name is 'Trump' So They Have to Shout the Name When Their Cup of Joe is Ready
Supporters of President-elect Donald Trump who feel there has been a backlash against Republicans since his election are taking their protest to the percolators. Republicans are ordering their coffee and stating their name is 'Trump' so baristas will have to shout the last name of the president-elect when their drink is ready.

Tech Distractions Blamed for Rise in Traffic Fatalities – Well, Duh!
After steady declines over the last four decades, highway fatalities last year recorded the largest annual percentage increase in 50 years. And the numbers so far this year are even worse. In the first six months of 2016, highway deaths jumped 10.4 percent, to 17,775, from the comparable period of 2015, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Dear Progressives,
Thank You for Reminding Us of the Real Reasons We Fight You

Jeffrey T. Brown
As if they see the world in only one or two dimensions, so-called “progressives” seem incapable of processing their overwhelming emotions outside a narrow framework of self-pity and raging narcissism. Because they appear to think about the world around them in ways guided entirely by emotion, unlike their foes who see emotion as a dangerous foundation for permanent change, they react to disappointment or loss as self-righteous victims, or antisocial thugs, rather than mentally sound individuals.
Why Trump Won
Victor Davis Hanson
In the end, the #NeverTrump movement fizzled, and most of the party rightly saw, after putting aside the matter of his character, that Trump’s agenda was conservative in almost every area – immigration, energy, gun rights, taxes and regulation, abortion, health care, and military spending. In areas of doubt – foreign policy and entitlements – voters reasoned that sober and judicious Republican advisors would surround and enlighten Trump.

Obama’s Main Legacy: The Collapse of the Democratic Party
Rich Lowry
Obama is a once-in-a-generation political athlete who will always be remembered as the nation’s first African-American president. But a goodly portion of what he has labored for over two terms could now wash out with the political tide. His party has been devastated beneath him... The Democrats are now, judging by the scorecard of major offices, the nation’s minority party.
Why We Use Electoral College, Not Popular Vote
Jarrett Stepman   
The Electoral College remains in place over two centuries after the framers of the Constitution empowered it to select presidents. Though occasionally maligned, this system of electing a chief executive has been incredibly successful for the American people. Many modern voters might be surprised to learn that when they step into a ballot box to select their candidate for president, they actually are casting a vote for fellow Americans called electors.

Destroying the Electoral College:
The Anti-Federalist National Popular Vote Scheme

Hans A. von Spakovsky
The National Popular Vote (NPV) plan is the latest in a long line of schemes designed to replace the Electoral College. Imbued with the ideals of this nation’s Founders, the Electoral College has proved itself to be both effective in providing orderly elections for President and resilient in allowing a stable transfer of power of the leadership of the world’s greatest democracy. Therefore, while it would be a mistake to replace the Electoral College, replacing this system with the NPV would be a disaster.
Trump Names Reince Priebus Chief of Staff,
Steve Bannon Senior Counselor

Trump said that Priebus and Bannon will work as “equal partners" – as they did in the campaign – to make the federal government “much more efficient, effective and productive.” “Steve and Reince are highly qualified leaders who worked well together on our campaign and led us to a historic victory,” Trump said.
Defeat Likely Spells the End of Clinton Dynasty
“Over,” a party insider said of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who between them have held public office for nearly 30 years. “No one wants to see anyone named Clinton ever again.” With Hillary defeated, Bill plagued by recurrent “bimbo eruptions,” and Chelsea reportedly devastated by the toll that failure in public life has taken on her parents, it’s game over for the Clinton Dynasty, sources said.
Limbaugh: The Time to Unify is After Democrats Surrender
Like the Japanese in World War II

... nobody saw this, folks – because everybody was so focused on two people, Hillary and Donald Trump. We should have known it because we've been chronicling it. I'm talking about the demise of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party since 2010, the midterm elections in 2010, they lost 900 seats in that election in the House, in the Senate, go to governorships, mayors, town council, if you go all over the country, they got a shellacking...
When Does the Postmortem for the Media Begin?
Jazz Shaw
This wasn’t just a question of the pollsters getting their likely voter models massively wrong. That’s just number crunching. It was the media spokesmodels who took it upon themselves to tell Trump supporters not only that they had no chance, but then went on in great detail to tell them why their cause was hopeless. They were terrible people, probably fully deserving of the title, basket of deporables.
New York Times Vows Honest Reporting
Now That IS News! (Don't hold your breath)

The publisher of The New York Times penned a letter to readers Friday promising that the paper would "reflect" on its coverage of this year's election while rededicating itself to reporting on "America and the world" honestly. Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., the paper's embattled publisher, appealed to Times readers for their continued support.
How the Leftmedia Really Blew It
They didn't misread opinion; they tried to dictate it.

Allyne Caan
While the big story is, of course, the election outcome, the story behind the story is media malpractice. It's not that the media and pollsters misread the opinions of the American electorate; it's that they were trying to dictate opinion to the American electorate – pollaganda – using polling as propaganda to influence public opinion rather than gauge it.
The Anti-Trump Protests are Being Orchestrated by
Communists, Socialists and Marxists

John Perazzo
Contrary to media misrepresentations, many of the supposedly spontaneous, organic, anti-Trump protests we have witnessed in cities from coast to coast were in fact carefully planned and orchestrated, in advance, by a pro-Communist organization called the ANSWER Coalition, which draws its name from the acronym for “Act Now to Stop War and End Racism.” ANSWER was established in 2001 by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, a group staffed in large part by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party.

Anti-Trump Protests Funded By Left-Wing ‘Charity’
A left-wing charity organization with unknown sources of money is providing the funding for protests around the country – some of which have turned into violent riots – that have threatened a divided nation’s ability to unify after a contentious presidential election. The Progress Unity Fund is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization – the same classification as the Red Cross. The group’s mission is to “provide a progressive alternative to mainstream charities,” according to its IRS filings.

Seething Liberals Vow Revolution In Democratic Party
Jonathan Easley
The Republican civil war was supposed start this week. Instead, a ferocious struggle has erupted on the left over the smoldering remains of the Democratic Party. Liberals are seething over the election and talking about launching a Tea Party-style revolt. They say its the only way to keep Washington Democrats connected to the grassroots and to avoid a repeat of the 2016 electoral disaster, which blindsided party elites.
When the Trump Team Comes Looking for the
Secrets of Obama's Iran File

Claudia Rosett
The Obama administration's Iran file has been a realm of murk, crammed with dangerous concessions and secret side deals for terror-sponsoring Tehran – to a degree that has left some critics wondering if Obama's real aim was to empower Iran as the hegemon of the Middle East (equipped with ballistic missiles to complement its "exclusively peaceful" nuclear program).
Time to Criminalize Tyranny
Tom Trinko
Some people are calling for "reconciliation" after Trump's election. Some even say that Hillary shouldn't be prosecuted. The reality is that if we allow liberals to constantly misuse government power and break the law with no consequences, they will never stop. Like little children, they need a spanking to keep them in line.
Obama Admin to Push Climate Pact Before Trump Takes Over
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday the Obama administration would do everything it could to implement a global agreement to combat climate change before President-elect Donald Trump takes office. Kerry made the comments during a visit to New Zealand just before setting off to Marrakesh, Morocco to take part in climate talks between 200 nations.
EPA Rushing Through Regulations After Trump Election
The head of the EPA is telling staff to quickly finish up the last round of regulations before President-elect Donald Trump enters the Oval Office next year. "As I've mentioned to you before, we're running – not walking – through the finish line of President Obama's presidency," EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said in a staff memo obtained by the Washington Examiner after Trump was declared the winner of Tuesday's election.

Obama’s Self-Serving Plan to Close Gitmo a Threat to National Security
With just 2 months remaining in his term, President Obama has arrived at what many intelligence officials believe is an “irreducible minimum” number of Guantanamo Bay prisoners who can’t be transferred because they’re considered too dangerous, or their home countries like Yemen are too unstable to repatriate them.

Canada PM Says Ready to Renegotiate NAFTA with Trump
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday he is willing to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which US President-elect Donald Trump has said he wants to change or scrap. “If the Americans want to talk about NAFTA, I’m more than happy to talk about it,” he said, adding that it was important to periodically reassess trade deals to ensure that they continue to be of benefit to Canadians.

In a position paper published on his website Friday afternoon, Trump called for the elimination of gun and magazine bans, labeling them a "total failure." "Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own," Trump wrote.

Sen. Joe Manchin Slams Harry Reid’s Takedown of Trump
At least one Senate Democrat is not rallying behind Minority Leader Harry Reid's sharp criticism of President-elect Trump. "Senator Harry Reid's statement today attacking President-elect Trump is wrong! It is an absolute embarrassment to the Senate as an institution, our Democratic party, and the nation. I want to be very clear, he does not speak for me," Manchin said in a statement on Friday.
Now Comes the Hard, Fun and Vital Part – "Making America Great Again" Requires Deep-Sixing Punitive Energy and Environmental Rules

With the elections over, the truly difficult tasks lie before us. Filling Supreme Court vacancies with jurists who believe in our Constitution, repealing and replacing ObamaCare, reforming the politicized IRS, DOJ, and FBI, immigration issues, and fixing the VA and incomprehensible tax code are all high on every list. However, abundant, reliable, affordable energy remains the foundation of modern civilization, jobs, health, and prosperity.
Who We Are As a People – The Syrian Refugee Question
Imprimus – Edward J. Erler
Note that these leaders show no such enthusiasm for admitting Christian refugees from Middle Eastern violence, or even Yazidis, who have suffered horribly from the ravages of Islamic terror. These refugees, of course, represent no danger to America. Only by admitting those who do represent a danger can we display to the world "who we are as a people" – a people willing to sacrifice ourselves to vouchsafe our commitment to tolerance.
British 'Sharia Courts' Under Scrutiny Over Undermining Women Rights
For more than 30 years, sharia courts enforcing Islamic law have been operating quietly across Britain. But two official inquiries have put them in the spotlight amid accusations that they discriminate against women. Very little is known about them, even their number, which one study by the University of Reading puts at 30, while the British think tank Civitas estimates there are 85.
Australia Rejects Same-Sex Marriage Bill
Australia's parliament late Monday rejected the government's proposal for a national vote on whether to legalize same-sex marriage. The upper house Senate voted 33-29 against the coalition government's bid to hold a plebiscite on the issue.

The Worst Thing About Criminal Hillary is

There’s so much that’s shudder-worthy in Hillary’s illegal behavior and disastrous decisions around the world that her deep ties to her mentor, shady lawless billionaire mega-player Soros are being overlooked.

Obama DOJ: Handmaiden of Clinton Corruption
Joseph Klein
The Obama Department of Justice has been corruptly aiding and abetting the Democratic Party's presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, to escape legal accountability for her actions. From Attorney General Loretta Lynch on down through the Justice Department's political ranks, the Department has blocked the FBI from searching for the truth and following the evidence of potential criminality to its logical conclusion.

Huma Abedin Told FBI She Notified Obama WH
Every Time Clinton Changed Emails

Catherine Herridge told Brit Hume that the bureau is "going through Weiner's computer to see if there are classified records on [it]." If agents find classified information on it, Abedin may face legal trouble because she signed a "separation agreement" to return all such data to the State Department when she left it in 2013. President Obama may also have a "vested interest in the outcome" of the race, she said.
Clinton Directed Her Maid to Print Out Classified Materials;
The FBI Never Interviewed Maid or Checked Devices

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents – including ones containing classified information – from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material. In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate – if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.
Giuliani, Sessions, Keating, et al:

We are concerned about the egregious damage that has been inflicted on two revered government agencies: the Department of Justice and Department of State.

The Clintons – At the End of All Things
For the Clintons, Power is a Narcotic

Victor Davis Hanson
Epic greed, power, and pride: Where’s the bottom? With Bill and Hillary, there’s no telling. For a few criminals, remorse comes with old age; but for the Clintons, near-70 was to be the capstone, the last chance to trump all their prior shenanigans. They were artists of amorality, and the election of 2016 was to be their magnum opus.
The Clintons suffer from greed, as defined by Aristotle: endless acquisition solely for the benefit of self.

WikiLeaks Reveals How Billionaire ‘Progressives’
Run the Democratic Party

IBD Editorial
Among the curiosities spewed from John Podesta's email by WikiLeaks is an intriguing memo to a group of billionaires that outlines the real goals of the Democratic Party's progressive wing. Turns out they don't want to rig an election, they want to rig the whole system – demographics, politics, the media, everything. The idea that the Democratic Party is the party of the "little man," as the old term would have it, is one of the great fallacies of our time, as this memo clearly shows.

Hillary's server being hacked is old news. The story you're not hearing about is the media's willful blindness. The next president of the United States could be an individual – Hillary Clinton – who allowed classified information to fall into the hands of not one, not two, but as many as five foreign intelligence agencies due to her negligence and illegal use of an unsecured private email server. And the mainstream media's malfeasance is helping her get elected commander in chief.
Obamacare Victims Revolt: ‘We Don’t have that Kind of Money’

We are still days away from finally knowing the winner of one of the ugliest elections in modern history, but we already have the biggest loser: the media.

Clinton’s State Department: A RICO Enterprise
Andrew McCarthy
To this point, the Justice Department and FBI have found creative ways not to charge Hillary Clinton for them. Whether this will remain the case has yet to be seen. As we go to press, the stunning news has broken that the FBI’s investigation is being reopened. Mrs. Clinton appears to have converted the office of secretary of state into a racketeering enterprise. This would be a violation of the RICO law – the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1971.

The Trump Contract with the American Voter might be the most serious proposal to end Washington corruption ever made by a candidate for president. It also includes seven actions to protect American workers, five actions to restore our security and our rule of law, and ten legislative proposals to be introduced in Congress on his first day in office. Just as important as the proposals themselves is that with his contract, Donald Trump is asking the voters to hold him accountable.

Whether you're a fan of Julian Assange or not (I most certainly am not), it's impossible to deny that the WikiLeaks hack has provided Americans with a secret keyhole view into the dingy and sordid backrooms where Hillary Clinton does her business. WikiLeaks has released an enormous amount of information and some of it definitively shows that Hillary Clinton isn't fit to be President.
Flashback: Bill Clinton Cheered 11th Hour Indictment
That Doomed Bush Re-Election

Paul Bedard
Whispers of "payback" are being directed at Hillary Clinton after she decried as "unprecedented" the surprise FBI revival of its probe of her email scandal. That's because 24 years ago, as former President George H.W. Bush was surging back against challenger Bill Clinton, a special prosecutor raised new charges against Bush in the Iran-Contra probe, prompting Clinton to claim he was running against a "culture of corruption."
Obama Administration Helps Muslims, not Christians
As the Muslim persecution of Christians continues to reach critical proportions around the world, the average American shows much more concern than the current administration... A poll found that more than three-quarters of American respondents agreed with the statement: “It is important to me that the next U.S. President be committed to addressing the persecution that some Christians face around the world (e.g.: imprisonment, beheadings, rape, loss of home and assets).”

‘Scandal’ Plagued Clinton Foundation

"Yes," the career journalist flatly responded. "It's corrupt. It's a scandal."

Confirmed: Wikileaks Documents Prove Hillary
Used Fake Polls to Suppress the Bernie Vote

Jim Hoft
This past weekend a leaked Wikileaks document revealed the Clinton campaign uses bogus polls to discourage the opposition from turning out on election day. This is how the Clinton machine operates – Release bogus weighted polls that show Hillary ahead and hope her opponents will stay home.

Jesus's Tomb Opened for First Time in Centuries
For the first time in centuries, scientists have exposed the original surface of what is traditionally considered the tomb of Jesus Christ.

Resurrection of Christ’s Tomb Transcends Election News
Judi McLeod
In a world where God is being driven from the Public Square, the most sacred of shrines has been resurrected in Jerusalem, a 4,800-year-old city the United Nations is trying to reclaim for Palestine. Though billions of people of faith are finding it increasingly difficult to find their Creator anywhere in the Public Square of their day, Christians will be able to see with their own eyes, inside the tomb both history and tradition identify as the one where Christ’s crucified body was laid.

Sanctuary City Illegal Immigrant
Sparks $61M Fire In Sequoia National Forest

Angel Gilberto Garcia-Avalos had been deported five times in just the past four years, yet each time he has managed to sneak from Mexico back into the U.S., where he ended up in more mischief: driving without a license, attempted burglary and felony weapons charges. In August, he graduated to full-fledged mayhem, sparking a fire in the Sequoia National Forest that has already cost the government $61 million and left some of the country's most beautiful landscape scarred for years to come.
Americans Say 'No' to Rifle Ban
Thomas Gallatin
Gallup just released a poll showing Americans' support for a ban on so-called “assault rifles” at an all-time low of only 36%.

No Consequences from Media Peers for
Reporters Caught Colluding with Hillary

Evan Gahr
Decades before social media and email, a remarkable but unsung Bronx housewife named Ruth Goldstock told her grandson, "Never put anything in writing that you wouldn't want on the front page of The New York Times."

FBI Agents say Comey ‘stood in the way’ of Email Investigation;
Reveal Comey was NEVER an Agent or Investigator at the FBI

Kerry Picket
FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey’s decision to not suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information... “This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have been convened, but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
Note this was written prior to Comey reopening the investigation
The ‘overpromise’ Presidency Enters Its Last 100 Days
Daniel Allott
Barack Obama ascended to the presidency with sky-high public approval ratings, control of both houses of Congress and a great deal of unearned goodwill around the world. His goal was ambitious: To expand government in order to "fundamentally transform" the country. But when Obama leaves office in 100 days, he will leave behind a legacy that can only be seen as a failure to those who treasure limited government and constitutional democracy.

Trump Closing Argument is Battle Cry Against Clinton Corruption
Presents a 100-day ‘contract with the American people’

Trailing in most polls with 17 days until the Nov. 8 election, the Republican nominee offered himself as a “once in a lifetime” agent of change to revive the economy and stamp out Washington corruption. He drew a stark contrast between his plan and the more-of-the-same government that he said Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would run to benefit herself and her cronies.
Text of Trump’s Gettysburg speech
Trump Lays Out Policies for First 100 Days in White House
“Change has to come from outside our very broken system,” said Trump, who lags behind Hillary Clinton in most national polls, and ended another bruising week, in which he shocked debate viewers by refusing to say he’d accept the results of the presidential election. Pledging to “drain the swamp” of Washington DC, Trump said he would fight for a constitutional amendment to limit congressional terms and to trim the fat from the federal bureaucracy.
“I Was Paid $3,500 to Protest Trump’s Rally”
Stories of been circulating for months that the Hillary Clinton campaign, or supporters like George Soros, have been paying people to protest at Donald Trump’s political rallies. Needless to say neither the Clinton campaign nor Soros have any comment on the stories. It turns out that now we’ve got proof that Trump protesters are being paid, and we got lots of proof. Guess what, the “mainstream media” is ignoring the story.

I've been there, and that's why I
smell a rat with these Trump allegations

Herman Cain
This all feels so familiar. I've gotten over it, but I'll never forget it. It was November 2011, and I was leading the polls in the Republican nomination race. My 9-9-9 tax play was attracting national attention and interest in my candidacy was as its height. Then came the women.

There are Way Too Many Coincidences in Assaults On Trump
Andrew Malcolm
You're being manipulated into voting for Hillary Clinton. It's a very sophisticated campaign of manipulation. I've seen it before. Don't let them fool you. This is about Americans being politically manipulated quite cleverly, something people do not appreciate, if they're allowed to be aware of it. Recent events could be a movie called "Wag the Dog - Again."
Caught On Tape: UN bans skeptical journalists from climate summit for holding views not ‘particularly helpful’
The United Nations has rejected the media credentials of three journalists from a conservative news outlet in Canada to the upcoming UN climate summit in Morocco in November. Nick Nuttall, a UN official, admitted in an October 18 CBC interview that The Rebel news outlet is being banned from attending the UN summit because of its skeptical reporting of the UN’s climate claims. Nuttall tried to justify the UN media ban by noting that The Rebel TV host Ezra Levant has called UN promoted climate change fears a “crock.” But much to the shock of the UN official, the warmist Canadian Broadcasting Corp’s (CBC) Carol Off was having none of it. The CBC’s Off openly challenged the UN’s censorship of the media outlet.

Australia Admits Gun Buyback FAILURE, Announces Amnesty

Hillary's Enemies List: Julie Golob
It's beyond appalling that Hillary Clinton made the claim that the 5 million members of the NRA make her public enemy list. This presidential candidate – one most known for lies, deceit and lack of care with the security of our nation – dares to designate us as such? This goes beyond an attempt to garner the head nods and hallelujahs of the fearful ignorant.

That's Who Hillary Clinton Really is

Judi McLeod
Millions got to see it with their very own eyes during last night's last presidential debate: Hillary Clinton laughing at the prospect of ISIS hurling gays to their deaths off of high buildings. As sure as the written work of her late mentor Saul Alinsky was dedicated to Lucifer, as certain as the sun setting over a not so long ago noble America, it happened.
Philippines ‘Separation’ from U.S. Jilts Hillary Clinton, Too;
Another Blemish on Clinton's Stint at State Department

When the Philippines appeared to jilt its old ally the United States in favor of China this week, it repudiated not only President Obama and his “pivot” to Asia, but also Hillary Clinton, who made reaching out to the region her signature project as his secretary of state... If anything, a rift would be even more personal for Mrs. Clinton than for Mr. Obama. As secretary of state, she laid the groundwork for the president’s focus on Asia...

Bre Payton
"I have never seen in my lifetime or in modern political history any presidential candidate trying to discredit the election process before votes have even taken place," Obama said.

Helped Facilitate Missile Attacks On Navy Ship

Planned Parenthood

Pro-life groups are taking action against what they call the Obama administration's "parting gift" to Planned Parenthood. "This is a political judgment, a parting gift," Chuck Donovan, president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, said of the new rule that could make it more difficult for states to defund Planned Parenthood clinics. "It's part of the devotion to big abortion."
Margaret Sanger Would Be Proud of
What Planned Parenthood Has Become

“Unborn Lives Matter” Considered Bigotry and Censored on Campus
Kimberly Ross
Increasingly, college campuses across the U.S. are becoming havens for everything but conservative thought. At these institutions of “higher learning”, safe spaces protect tender twenty-somethings from the scary concept called diversity of thought. DePaul University, a private, (loosely) Catholic university in Chicago, is just the latest example. In the era of Black Lives Matter, you may think all lives matter. Silly you. Such an idea is offensive.
