Now in our 19th 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)

The Russian Collusion Story: The Acme of Fake News
Clarice Feldman
Richard Fernandez is one of the most brilliant authors on the Internet. This week he wrote: Conventional wisdom posits the chief challenges facing the post-Cold War World are Global Warming and the decline of international institutions. But maybe that assurance is a species of Fake News.

Media’s Assault on Christian Activist Organizations Is
Beyond ‘Fake News’

Bill Donohue
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) does some of the best legal work in the United States defending religious liberty. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke at one of its meetings on July 11, and some in the media treated it as if he spoke before the Klan.

Democrats Intentionally Used Disinformation from Russia to
Attack Trump, Campaign Aides

While the mainstream news media hunts for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the public record shows that Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump and attack his administration. The disinformation came in the form of a Russian-fed dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It contains a series of unverified criminal charges against Mr. Trump's campaign aides, such as coordinating Moscow's hacking of Democratic Party computers.
The Russia collusion narrative all began with them
Obama DOJ Let Russian Lawyer Into U.S. Before
She Met with Trump Team

This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa. Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding Donald Trump Jr.
Check Out All the Democrats Connected to
'Russian Lawyer' Trump, Jr. Met With

Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. The former congressman is one of several high-profile Democratic partisans who was on Veselnitskaya's payroll, working to defeat a law that is the hated object of a personal vendetta waged by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
How ABC is Cleverly Citing Bogus 'experts' to Make
Jeff Sessions's Defense of Christianity Sound Like 'hate'

Dan Calabrese
Here's the impression ABC News wants you to get: Attorney General Jeff Sessions, hater of gay people, went and gave a secret hateful speech to an even bigger group of haters, only to be called out by a civl rights watchdog. Here's what actually happened:

Religious Freedom Advocates Fire Back
After 'Hate Group' Smear Over Jeff Sessions Speech

"Alliance Defending Freedom is one of the most respected and successful Supreme Court advocates in the legal profession, having won seven cases at the High Court in the last seven years," Kerri Kupec, communications director for Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF, said in the prepared statement.
Research Team Slams Global Warming Data In New Report:
"Totally Inconsistent with Credible Temperature Data"

As world leaders, namely in the European Union, attack President Trump for pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement which would have saddled Americans with billions upon billions of dollars in debt and economic losses, a new bombshell report that analyzed Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data produced by NASA, the NOAA and HADLEY proves the President was right on target with his refusal to be a part of the new initiative.
Peer reviewed report says data is completely bunk
Insanity and Hypocrisy Down Under
Paul Driessen
Australia has had a series of massive power outages and blackouts – and its green, climate-centric politicians are setting the stage for many more. The Wall Street Journal suggests that excessive Aussie natural gas exports may be to blame, offering lessons for the U.S. There certainly are lessons to be learned, but not that. The key lessons are don't lock up your energy resources, and don't try to get 30, 50 or 100 percent of your electricity from expensive, unreliable, grid-fouling wind and solar sources.
Key Republicans Call for Probe to See If
Russia Funded Anti-Fracking Groups

Two key House Republicans have called on the Trump administration to investigate whether Russia is trying to undermine the U.S. energy industry by funding environmental activism as part of a "propaganda war against fossil fuels." "If you connect the dots, it is clear that Russia is funding U.S. environmental groups in an effort to suppress our domestic oil and gas industry, specifically hydraulic fracking," said Mr. Smith, Texas Republican, in a Friday statement.

Lawmakers Cite Evidence Russia 'Colludes' with
U.S. Green Groups to Block Fracking

Forget about allegations of Russian interference in U.S. presidential elections for a moment, or even "collusion" between Russian officials and Trump campaign operatives. The real action is in the European and U.S. energy markets, according to a letter from two Texas congressmen to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that details what they call "a covert anti-fracking campaign" with "little or no paper trail."
Turkey to Pull Out from Paris Accord –
Without U.S. Tax Dollar Largess the Cost of Compliance Is Too Great

The U.S. decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement means Turkey is less inclined to ratify the deal because the U.S. move jeopardizes compensation promised to developing countries, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday. Erdogan said that when Turkey signed the accord France had promised that Turkey would be eligible for compensation for some of the financial costs of compliance.
Iowa Bans Use of Eminent Domain for
Wind-Energy Transmission Lines

In a setback for the renewable-energy industry, Iowa now has a law barring the use of eminent domain for high-voltage transmission lines carrying wind energy across the state into Illinois. The battle over right of way for transmission lines transporting wind energy has been raging in Iowa and neighboring Illinois for more than six years.

Why Trump is Right About Wind Power and His Detractors are Wrong
Frederick D. Palmer, Isaac Orr
While promoting his "America First" energy plan, Trump stated, "I don't want to just hope the wind blows to light up your homes and your factories … as the birds fall to the ground." Coal is the primary means of generating electricity in the Hawkeye State because the average wind turbine in Iowa produces electricity only approximately 34 percent of the time. Whether Iowa gets large amounts of electricity from wind power is immaterial; the turbines sit idle 66 percent of the time, and when they are idle, coal shoulders the load.

Global Warming Blown Out… Record Low Temps Recorded
Martin Lioll
We keep on hearing about how global warming is making our planet hotter than ever. If you live in a third-floor beachfront condo, the left says, you'd better get ready to deal with seals swimming right outside your window – because that's how fast the ice in the Arctic is melting. There have been plenty of nails in the coffin of this sort of alarmism, but a new record in Greenland seems to be the latest piece of evidence the media is desperately trying to ignore.

Angela Merkel at G-20: "I deplore" U.S. leaving Paris Climate Accord
German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday spoke out against the Trump administration's intentions to drop out of the Paris Agreement on climate change. "You are familiar with the American position.

Ratbags! There goes all the money!
The Left's Revealing Freakout Over Trump's Defense of the West
Mike Gonzalez
Western values, Judeo-Christian at base but also to some degree influenced by Greco-Roman views on philosophy and politics, are under threat from within by a nihilist "Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Western Civ has got to go" mentality. President Donald Trump told Poles fighting a version of that mindset that he was with them – and the American left had a freakout.
Federal Prosecutors Step Up Probe of Land Deal
Pushed by Wife of Bernie Sanders

A federal investigation of a land deal led by Jane Sanders, the wife and political adviser of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), has accelerated in recent months – with prosecutors hauling off more than a dozen boxes of records from the Vermont college she once ran and calling a state official to provide evidence for a grand jury, according to interviews and documents.
Jihad Means More Than “A Peaceful Self-Struggle”!
Maher Gabra
The jihad against oneself and Satan is the struggle to be a good Muslim and follow Allah. However, jihad against infidels and hypocrites is more than a self-struggle. It is an effort to change the situation on the ground. Such jihad could be executed through four different means: by oneself (fighting in the way of Allah), by money (funding those who fight), by one's words (speaking up against oppressors or infidels), or by one's heart (that is, by hating the evil and feeling that it is wrong).
Muslim Husband Chops Off Wife's Fingers Because
She Won't Drop Out of College

Tom Knighton
A woman is recovering after having her fingers chopped off by her husband in Bangladesh, a majority Muslim nation. One of the husband's relatives then threw her fingers in the trash so they couldn't be reattached by surgeons. Obviously, this sounds extremely harsh. But multiculturalism teaches that all cultures should be celebrated, right?
The Islamic View of "Feminism"
Nonie Darwish
What the West needs to know is that in the Muslim world, jihad is considered more important than women, family happiness and life itself. If we are told, as Linda Sarsour said, that Islam stands for peace and justice, what we are not told is that "peace" in Islam will come only after the whole world has converted to Islam, and that "justice" means law under Sharia: whatever is inside Sharia is "justice;" whatever is not in Sharia is not "justice."
San Francisco International Near Miss Might Have Triggered
'Greatest Aviation Disaster in History'

An Air Canada pilot on narrowly avoided a tragic mistake: landing on the San Francisco International Airport taxiway instead of the runway. Sitting on Taxiway C shortly before midnight were four airplanes full of passengers and fuel awaiting permission to take off, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, which is investigating the "rare" incident.

Over the $10.5M Khadr Settlement

Sean Bruyea
When pressed about the issue on the Senate floor Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he understood Canadians' "concerns" about the $10.5 million payout to Omar Khadr. "In fact," he added, "I share those concerns about the money; that's why we settled." But to the thousands of men and women who have served in Canada's military, their concerns go far beyond the simple dollar amount.
WW II Pilot's Remains Found in Tree, Return for Burial 72 Years Later
For more than 70 years a tree protected the remains of a World War II fighter pilot from Washington state whose plane crashed in Germany in 1945. The remains of Army Air Forces 1st Lt. William Gray of Kirkland were returned to his family Friday for a burial at Tahoma National Cemetery with full military honors.
Surprise! Women's Marchers Hired Armed Guards for Their
Protest Against the NRA

Katie Pavlich
Organizers of the "Women's March" and Michael Bloomberg's gun control lobbying group Everytown are participating in an anti-National Rifle Association rally today. They are currently walking from Fairfax, Virginia to Washington D.C. as part of the resistance movement. But what's a leftist rally without a massive dose of hypocrisy? Turns out a number of Women's March leaders are walking with armed security and protective vehicles.
Chelsea Clinton Claims Mom Would Not ‘Literally Sell Her Own Daughter,’ No Comment on Hillary Having a Soul
Samantha Chang
Birds of a grifter-feather flock together. Just ask Chelsea Clinton, who defended her mom Hillary Clinton after Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe called the two-time failed presidential candidate a “soulless person” who would “sell her daughter to be president.” In response, Chelsea tweeted a meek defense: “No, she wouldn’t. I’ve never doubted and always known I was the most important part of her life.
Seattle Councilman: Cleaning Poop Off Sidewalks is Racist
The crime and smell of urine and excrement have gotten so bad outside a King County courthouse that two judges are scrambling to find ways to fix the situation, reports the Seattle Times. King County council member Larry Gossett isn't a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.
You just can't make poop like this up!

How Do We Rediscover Our American Heritage?
Start with the Declaration

D. Hawthorne
It’s sobering to consider the degree to which we have lost our knowledge of and connection to our American heritage. As a result, William B. Allen notes that we have been transitioning increasingly from a society of “independent yeomen” to a society of “wards of the state.” The challenge before us is to determine whether we can rediscover our heritage, and relearn the requirements for becoming good and free citizens while also reclaiming the sovereignty we have ceded to the state.
We Want God, They Want Anarchy
Judi McLeod
Humanity has a thirst that Coca Cola and Pepsi can never quench; a hunger no fast food outlet can satisfy because it’s a ravenous hunger of the heart. No politician, no propagandizing media has ever been able to stop mankind’s age-old stampede to the Holy Face of God. Just as iron filings are drawn to the magnet, humans, wired from birth by a supernatural force, continue to seek out their Creator.
Trump Has Putin Over a Barrel
Lawrence Kudlow
Through crafty media relations and his own bravado, a deluded Putin struggles to maintain the illusion that Russia is a strong economic power. But it ain't so. Not even close... Now, Russia still has a lot of oil and gas reserves. And it uses this to bully Eastern and Western Europe. But enter President Donald Trump. In his brilliant speech in Warsaw, Poland, earlier this week, he called Putin's energy bluff.
Trump Warsaw Speech Shows Why They Hate Us
Don Surber
His answer began with his first words: "Thank you very much. That's so nice. The United States has many great diplomats, but there is truly no better ambassador for our country than our beautiful first lady, Melania." Our adversaries are jealous of her. They have no one who can match her grace and beauty. They attacked her from the beginning because they have no woman who is as good a role model. She dons the headscarf only to respect her religion, not theirs.

Manufacturing Pickup Signals Boost to U.S. Economic Growth

American factories powered up in June at the fastest pace in nearly three years, with robust advances in production, orders and employment that indicate a firming in the economy, data from the Institute for Supply Management showed Monday. Faster growth in orders and production in the final month of the quarter indicates solid demand that, together with rising exports, shows manufacturing is on solid footing.
U.S. Job Growth: 222,000 in June vs 179,000 Expected;
April and May Numbers Revised Upward as Well

The U.S. job market roared back to life in June, with a better-than-expected 222,000 new positions created in June while the unemployment rate held at 4.4 percent, according to a government report Friday. Economists surveyed by Reuters had been expecting nonfarm payrolls growth of 179,000 and the unemployment rate to be 4.3 percent.
While de Blasio Whined in Germany, Trump Was Our Defender
Michael Goodwin
NY Post de Blasio cover
It is a tale of two New Yorkers. Donald Trump goes to Germany to defend Western civilization and promote economic growth. Bill de Blasio goes to Germany to throw verbal Molotov cocktails and promote socialism. One is the leader of the free world, the other is a great pretender.
Marking Natural Law with Mark Levin
Paul Kengor
Levin writes that "natural law provides a moral compass or order – justice, virtue, truth, prudence, etc. – a fundamental, universal, everlasting harmony of mores that transcend human law. Through natural law discovered by right reason, man knows right from wrong and good from bad." Natural law is right law. And unfortunately, as Levin notes, "that which is naturally just may not be legally just."
Study Finds Temperature Adjustments Account for
'Nearly All of the Warming' in Climate Data;

Study's Authors Claim the Science Underpinning the
EPA Authority to Regulate Greenhouse Gases "is invalidated"

The new study doesn't question the adjustments themselves but notes nearly all of them increase the warming trend... "You would think that when you make adjustments you'd sometimes get warming and sometimes get cooling. That's almost never happened," said D'Aleo, who co-authored the study with statistician James Wallace and Cato Institute climate scientist Craig Idso. Their study found measurements "nearly always exhibited a steeper warming linear trend over its entire history," which was "nearly always accomplished by systematically removing the previously existing cyclical temperature pattern."

Priebus Suggests Dems Set Up Trump Team Meeting with
Russian Lawyer : ‘May Spin Out of Control for DNC’

This weekend the New York Times published a pretty big story about a previously undisclosed meeting between members of Donald Trump’s campaign and a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin. The meeting took place shortly after Trump had clinched the Republican presidential nomination and Jared Kushner and Donald Trump Jr. were in attendance, along with then-campaign chief Paul Manafort.
Media Errors Give Trump Fresh Ammunition;
Breitbart News Has Success as Fact-Checker

The relationship between Trump and the news media regularly hits new lows, with insults flying between the two camps and reporters warning that the president is inciting violence against journalists. But Trump's allies on the right believe the president's claims that the mainstream media is "fake news" have been bolstered by recent missteps.
NYT Admits Facts Behind Bogus Russia Claim it
Pushed for 9 Months are ‘Simple’

Trump put the paper of record in a tough spot Thursday when he drew attention to the fact that the press has confessed to pushing a false claim that "17 intelligence agencies agree" on Russian interference in the presidential election. The New York Times and Associated Press both acknowledged the Clinton talking point is false this week, and conceded that in fact only three agencies working under the aegis of the Director of National Intelligence weighed in on the election meddling.
The New York Times Is In Trouble
John Hinderaker
We have noted here and elsewhere Sarah Palin's libel case against the New York Times. Ms. Palin can make a strong argument that the Times editorialists knew that their smear was a lie, based on reporting done by the Times itself. But at a minimum, it seems that the Times editorial was published with reckless disregard for whether it was true or not. It was a product of sheer hatred toward Palin.
Claire McCaskill’s Russia Hypocrisy Prompts
‘Comrade Claire’ Taunts from GOP

Democrat senator Claire McCaskill's (Mo.) quickly disproved claim earlier this year that she had never met with Russia's ambassador has prompted her local opponents to brand her "Comrade Claire." McCaskill opened the door for the criticism in March when she claimed she never had a call or meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, even though she had previously announced she had both a call and a meeting with Kislyak.

With One Tweet, CNN's Chris Cillizza Exposes the Media as

For some reason I cannot fathom, Chris Cillizza of CNN is regarded as respectable political journalist. In fact, he’s widely regarded by people in political journalism as one of the influential players in the industry. They believe he speaks with credibility and authority, and many of them follow his lead. Actually I think I can fathom the reason. It’s because journalists don’t do what you think they’re supposed to do. They don’t make well-considered judgments about what constitutes worthwhile news...

Repeat offender Alexander Bonds pulled the trigger that killed NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia, but he didn’t get there alone. Throughout his life, Bonds was abetted by judges and other people in government who did everything in their power to keep him out of prison, no matter what he did to deserve being in prison. They also gave him unknown quantities of tax dollars to subsidize his criminal lifestyle, pried from hard-working citizens and their families. That’s a story nobody ever tells.

As if this political climate weren’t crazy enough, last week’s “Impeach Trump March” in Chicago saw dozens of “antifa” protesters applauding the very words of … Adolf Hitler?? That’s right, a Trump supporter named Shad pretending to be a protester grabbed a bullhorn and addressed the crowd with the very words of the Führer, only slightly altered to fit today’s current events.
Government Hostility to Religion Spiked Under Obama

It's hard to believe American teenagers could be arrested for delivering a prayer, but that's the kind of nation we live in – a nation that was fundamentally transformed by the previous presidential administration. In 2011, the class president at Hampton High School in Tennessee wanted to deliver a pray at graduation. The principal issued an edict that any child who attempted to pray would be stopped, escorted from the building by police and arrested.
Rubio Pushes Back On Media for Calling Bible Verses ‘Republican’

Oregon lawmakers passed legislation co-sponsored by Sen. Brian Boquist (R-Dallas) that allows a judge to issue an ex parte ruling for the confiscation of an individual’s firearms. The bill is SB 719, and it has now passed Oregon’s House and Senate. It creates an Extreme Risk Protection Order, which forces the subject of the order to hand over all firearms, as well as his concealed carry permit if he possesses one.

The Media Will Do Anything to Bash Trump –
and Now They're Hurting

Michael Goodwin
In the sixth month of Donald Trump's presidency, we are witnessing an unprecedented meltdown of much of the media. Standards have been tossed overboard in a frenzy to bring down the president. Trump, like all presidents, deserves coverage that is skeptical and tough, but also fair. That's not what he's getting. What started as bias against him has become a cancer that is consuming the best and brightest.
Nearly Doomed by Too Little CO2
Dennis Avery
The Ice Age's combined horrors – intense cold, permanent drought, and CO2 starvation – killed most of the plants on earth. Only a few trees survived, in the mildest climates. Much of the planet's grass turned to tundra, which is much less nourishing to the herbivores we depended on for food and fur. Cambridge University's recent studies say that, worldwide, only about 100,00 humans were left alive when the current Interglacial warming mercifully began.

While most Americans are gathering with family and community this weekend to celebrate the most exceptional country in the history of the world, Mr. Hope and Change is halfway around the world talking doom and gloom – and criticizing his successor. Barack Obama visited Indonesia this weekend, and in a series of appearances, attacked love of country and the policies of Donald Trump.
Jay Sekulow: 'Why Don't We Have a Special Counsel

Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for President Donald Trump, was back at Fox News Wednesday to rail against what he calls "the so-called Russian probe."

Audit: ObamaPhone Program "riddled with fraud"
One of former President Barack Obama's pet programs, the so-called "ObamaPhone" subsidy that gave the poor a free cell phone and service, was just audited by President Donald Trump's administration. The reported amount of fraud and waste the auditors found is staggering. "The report, requested by Sen. Claire McCaskill, Missouri Democrat, also says the program has stashed some $9 BILLION in assets in private bank accounts rather than with the federal treasury, further increasing risks and depriving taxpayers of the full benefit of that money."

FAKE NEWS: NY Times Finally Retracts the Claim
That ‘17 Intel Agencies’ Said Russia was Behind Hacking

How long have they been spreading it? And it was actually called out by James Clapper during testimony. But media kept repeating the fiction. They included the retraction in an article today, basically as small as they could where people are likely not to see it.

AP “Clarifies” Fake Reports on Trump-Russia
The AP is setting the record straight and correcting their previous error in which they claimed that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump. Now they are saying it was only the FBI, CIA, and NSA who made that assessment.

Fake News: AP Engulfed in CNN-Level Scandal as
It Covers Up Invention of Imaginary Pruitt Meeting

The AP is at it again, pushing more fake news. Sadly, the once-great news wire service is trying to cover up its mistake – nearly the exact mistake that cost three editorial staffers at CNN their jobs in a scandal that first exploded a week ago today. The AP invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris, and then alleged that some kind of impropriety happened as a result.

CNN Journalists Resign:
Latest Example of Media Recklessness on the Russia Threat

Glenn Greenwald
Three prominent CNN journalists resigned Monday night after the network was forced to retract and apologize for a story linking Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment fund under congressional investigation. That article – like so much Russia reporting from the U.S. media – was based on a single anonymous source, and now, the network cannot vouch for the accuracy of its central claims.
CNN Producer Caught On Tape Saying Russia Story ‘Mostly Bulls**t’ –
A Witch Hunt Directed by CEO Jeff Zucker

Robert Laurie
As far as left-leaning cable news outlets are concerned, John Bonifield has just committed the ultimate sin. He's admitted what we all know is true. The Trump/Russia collusion story is a big fat pile of nothing – an evidence-free "witch hunt" designed to neuter a presidency and generate ratings.
The Media's Unhealthy Trump-Russia Obsession ... by the Numbers
Investor's Business Daily
Say what you want about President Trump's insulting tweets about MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, they've at least given the press something anti-Trump to obsess about other than Russia. But it isn't likely to last. CNN has been taking its share of hits for its relentless coverage of the "nothingburger" Trump-Russia story. But it's not the only media outlet suffering from Trump-Russia OCD.

CNN Uses Sesame Street's Elmo to Attack Trump's Travel Ban

John Nolte
Proving once again that there is no place you will find a happier leftist than in that influential sweet spot between parent and child, proving once again that during a month of extraordinary lows, CNN will always find a new barrel bottom, in the wake of President Trump's 9-0 Supreme Court triumph, the leftwing cable news network decided to use popular Sesame Street puppet Elmo as a propaganda tool against President Trump's temporary travel ban.
Undercover Video Reveals CNN’s Van Jones Calling
Russia Story ‘Nothing Burger’

CNN commentator Van Jones called the Russia story a "nothing burger" in the second CNN-related undercover video released by Project Veritas this week.

Edits, Hates Trump and Thinks Voters are Stupid

Project Veritas
Project Veritas' newest video from the American Pravda: CNN series exposes Jimmy Carr, the Associate Producer for CNN's New Day attacking President Donald Trump and admitting that CNN has a left-leaning bias. When asked by an undercover journalist if CNN is impartial, Carr plainly responded, "In theory." He then continued to talk about CNN's views on President Trump:

“Hate Crime” Narrative on Killing of Muslim Girl Crumbles as
New Details Emerge of Alleged Killer

The storyline began to collapse when The Daily Caller and other outlets reported that the alleged killer, Darwin Martinez Torres, was not a white supremacist bigot, as some alleged, but rather a 22-year-old illegal immigrant from El Salvador... had history of violence against women... assumed to be MS-13 member.
Houston Federal Judge Revokes Sex Offender's Naturalized Citizenship
A federal judge this week approved an order revoking the naturalized citizenship of a Harris County man convicted of a sex offense more than 20 years earlier, one of a growing number of immigrants stripped of citizenship in a push that began in the final years of the Obama administration. Jose Arizmendi, a native of Mexico, failed to disclose his 1996 conviction when he applied for citizenship, according to federal prosecutors.
McMaster Points to Obama's 'Premature Disengagement' for
Current Afghan Mess

National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster cast blame for the dire current situation in Afghanistan on the previous administration's handling of the war effort, while speaking at a Center for New American Security conference Wednesday. The national security advisor's comments came during an answer to a question as to how increasing the number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan can change the tide of the war. McMaster pointed to former President Barack Obama's "precipitous withdrawal" from Iraq and subsequent development of the Islamic State as an example of what the Trump administration intended not to do in Afghanistan.

A new Pew Research analysis has found that more babies will be born to Muslim mothers than mothers of any other religious group, including Christianity, by the year 2035. Pew Research Center demographic estimates based off of input data from more than 2,500 censuses, surveys and population registers since 2009 find that even though more babies have been born to Christian mothers than mothers of any other religion in recent years, that will likely not be the case in less than 20 years.

Alan Korwin
In a "more guns" bill that alarmed even pro-gun-rights activists, representative Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) has proposed arming federal legislators to the exclusion of regular citizens.

It is hard to read Islamic law books without concluding that Islamic values are essentially "a rebellion against the Ten Commandments".

In an article published in June 16, 2008, “The Marxist Roots of the Global Warming Scare,” Wes Vernon quoted Natalie Grant Wraga: “Protection of the environment has become the principal tool for attack against the West and all it stands for. Protection of the environment may be used as a pretext to adopt a series of measures designed to undermine the industrial base of developed nations. It may also serve to introduce malaise by lowering their standard of living and implanting communist values.”

Five Things Everyone is Ignoring About the Russia-DNC Story
Justin Caruso
The Democratic Party and mainstream media have become increasingly consumed with the narrative that Donald Trump’s election win is largely influenced by Russian hacking. The narrative is centered around two hacks–the hack of a DNC server that led to the release of embarrassing emails during the Democratic National Convention, and the hack of John Podesta’s email which led to several embarrassing moments for the Clinton campaign in October 2016. Both are supposedly the result of the Russians.
Schiff: Lynch’s Comments to Comey on Clinton Investigation
Also Give Me ‘Queasy Feeling’

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said Sunday that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's urging of former FBI Director James Comey to call the Hillary Clinton email investigation a "matter" also gave him a "queasy feeling." Schiff responded to the situation after being asked by CNN host Dana Bash if Lynch should come to Capitol Hill to testify.
We Need a Robert Mueller Resignation or a Second Special Counsel
Glenn Harlan Reynolds
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has a problem: He has a disqualifying conflict of interest regarding a large part of his work. It involves a choice between investigating or relying on former FBI director James Comey, a longtime close friend of Mueller's. Ideally, he'll recognize that and resign. But if he doesn't resign, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should appoint another special counsel to take over the obstruction-of-justice part of the investigation, where Mueller is disqualified.
The Antithesis of Obstruction
Andrew C. McCarthy
The “collusion” narrative was a fraud, plain and simple. We know that now. Hopefully, it won’t take another six months to grasp a second plain and simple truth: Collusion’s successor, the “obstruction” narrative, is a perversion. The Left loves narrative. The ever-expanding story manipulates time, space, and detail to fit a thematic framework.
Democrats Block Witnesses from Testifying in House Intel Probe
Congressional officials said one of the key witnesses, former informal adviser to the Trump campaign Carter Page, was scheduled to testify at a closed hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

"He's the guy that many Democrats have been pointing to as the supposed mastermind and you would think they were interested hearing his story," said one Capitol Hill official.

Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism "absolutely grotesque" and warned it would take decades to recover.
Real Scandals the Trump-Obsessed Media Are Ignoring
Investor’s Business Daily
As news outlets dissect every new crumb in the alleged Trump-Russia-collusion scandal, they’re largely ignoring other, very troubling scandals that happen to involve the previous administration. So far, and no doubt to the disappointment of many Trump haters, the Russia scandal has been going nowhere fast.
Will Mueller & Comey Use a False Case of
Obstruction to Trigger Impeachment?

Gregg Jarrett
... the special counsel statute requires Mueller to step down if he has a “personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the investigation or prosecution.” It then defines personal relationship as a “friendship... normally viewed as likely to induce partiality”. The Mueller-Comey friendship is well-documented and indisputable. They have long been friends, allies and partners.
Mattis Irks Leftist Media with Deadly Competency:
‘We’re going to kill them all’

The Washington Post in particular yesterday was upset that Mattis is annihilating the terrorists so effectively.  “A military policy run solely by the Pentagon creates confusion,” writes the Post.

Intelligence Database Worker Illegally Looked Up
Edward Snowden, Others – 636 Privacy Violations

A senior security database program officer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence had at least 14 freelance jobs, performed hundreds of illegal searches and admitted to spending approximately "all day" on Facebook. The findings are contained in a heavily redacted 32-page report compiled in late 2014 by the Office of the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community and made public Wednesday by Buzzfeed journalist Jason Leopold.
Obama’s Liberalism Paved the Way for Donald Trump
Michael Goodwin
It was Obamaism, more than Clintonism or Pelosism, that elected Donald Trump and gave the GOP both houses of congress. The former president’s coercive liberalism at home and appeasement abroad led to the greatest upset in American politics. His two biggest achievements, ObamaCare and the Iran nuclear deal, were sold on the backs of lies. President Trump is Obama’s legacy.
Study Supports Trump:
5.7 Million Noncitizens May Have Cast Illegal Votes

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.
How the Asbestos Hysteria Led to the Grenfell Tragedy
Michael Fumento
According to The Telegraph, fire safety experts warned as much as 18 years ago that the cladding used on buildings such as Grenfell Tower – used to improve both energy efficiency and aesthetics – posed a deadly threat because it essentially turns a high-rise into a chimney, funneling the heat upwards. Why? Partly it's "breathing space" between cladding panels allowing oxygen to enter and partly because the cladding was made of aluminum and . . . polyethylene.
Eight Failures That Left People of Grenfell Tower at the
Mercy of the Inferno

Alitany of failings in building regulation and safety rules have left residents in tower blocks vulnerable for decades. Despite constant warnings from fire experts, nothing was done to improve fire-proofing standards, or even review the current situation.

The New 'Consensus' On Global Warming –
A Shocking Admission by "Team Climate"

Michael Bastasch and Dr. Ryan Maue
A scientific consensus has emerged among top mainstream climate scientists that "skeptics" or "lukewarmers" were not long ago derided for suggesting – there was a nearly two-decade long "hiatus" in global warming that climate models failed to accurately predict or replicate. More importantly, the [research] paper discusses the failure of climate models to predict or replicate the "slowdown" in early 21st century global temperatures, which was another oft-derided skeptic observation.

Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner.

Kevin D. Williamson
A great deal of spittle has been deployed in the debate over whether or to what extent the Left's recent indulgence of its penchant for violent rhetoric can be linked to the shooting of Representative Steve Scalise and other members of a Republican congressional baseball team by an angry Democratic activist and Bernie Sanders partisan.

This is pure hogwash, to use a family-friendly term.

"PRESIDENT TRUMP'S resolution to delegate decisions on troop levels in Afghanistan to the Pentagon is a worthy corrective to the approach of President Barack Obama, who micromanaged U.S. military forces in a way that badly undercut their ability to achieve their goals. By politicizing force levels in Iraq and Afghanistan and setting timetables for withdrawal unlinked to conditions on the ground, Mr. Obama helped to ensure failure on his watch in both countries." –Washington Post

That’s according to California Rep.

The FBI was investigating Hodgkinson's postings on social media, and federal agents on Wednesday morning swarmed Hodgkinson's two-story home on the outskirts of Belleville.

Fake News: No "Assault" Rifle or AK-style Semi-automatic;
Congress Baseball Shooter Used SKS and 9mm Handgun

SKS is not an AK-47
The SKS is a semi-automatic rifle which pre-dates the AK-47 by about four years... SKS firearms imported into the United States are predominantly Yugoslavian manufactured, and while Russian and Chinese models are available they remain rare and sought after by collectors. That makes CNN's statement about the SKS ("a Chinese-made variant of the popular AK rifle") almost entirely incorrect. And as for the other news outlets like CBS which "confirmed" the weapon was an AR-15 that's just fake news.

Green Weenie of the Century: The Global Climate Treaties

As I have mentioned before, the most satisfying thing about Trump withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord is not that he did it, but that he did it in a way that maximized the outrage from the climatistas and their media toadies. It was a dial-it-to-eleven reprise of the outrage of when President George W. Bush took us out of the Kyoto Protocol, which was the previous treaty that would have saved the world if we hadn't bailed on it.
London's Grenfell Tower Covered with
Flammable Foam Panels to Satisfy "Green energy" Goal

"The cladding looks lovely, it's cheap, complies with regulations and gives the building a high environmental rating. But it's a silent killer. When this block was built, it complied with the old fire regulations. Had it been left alone it would never have burned like this." Fire fighters ineffective as water bounces off metal outer shell. Experts say the cladding now covers thousands of homes and offices across Britain.

ACM is essentially a sandwich of two aluminum sheets with materials for insulation inside. ACM panels often have a polyethylene core, which can be highly flammable.

When Losing An Election Makes You Lose Your Mind

Why Won't Abbas Accept "Two States for Two Peoples"?

For years, the Palestinian Authority- first under the leadership of Yasser Arafat and now under the 82-year-old Abbas – has perpetuated a vile policy of making payments to terrorists and their families. According to the official PA budget, in 2016 the Palestinian Authority directed $174 million of its total budget in payments to families of so-called "martyrs," and an additional $128 million for security prisoners – terrorists in Israeli prisons. Abbas claims to be a man of peace yet in reality he incentivizes, rewards and incites terrorism.

USS Fitzgerald Collision with ACX Crystal;
Missing U.S. Sailors Found Dead – Crystal's U-turn Questioned

The ACX Crystal was traveling between the Japanese cities of Nagoya and Tokyo. Marine traffic records suggest the ACX Crystal made a sudden U-turn roughly 25 minutes before the collision with the USS Fitzgerald. It is not clear why it changed course.

Safety Lapses Undermine Nuclear Warhead Work at Los Alamos

Trump Orders Government to Stop Work on Y2K Bug, 17 Years Later
The Trump administration announced Thursday that it would eliminate dozens of paperwork requirements for federal agencies, including an obscure rule that requires them to continue providing updates on their preparedness for a bug that afflicted some computers at the turn of the century. As another example, the Pentagon will be freed from a requirement that it file a report every time a small business vendor is paid, a task that consumed some 1,200 man-hours every year.
Fresh Out of Safe-Space, ‘Harvard lib’ Gets First Job,
Until ‘white male’ Boss Dares to Ask Why She’s 2 Hrs Late

A new parody video on social media is a wake-up call for millennials with a safe space mentality. It hilariously projects how it looks when young liberals face their first jobs. The video, from “The Conservative Millennial” Allie Stuckey lampoons the first day at a new job by a left wing, safe-spacer fresh from the cocoon of college.
Retired Pennsylvania Democrat, 75, Found Guilty of Groping His Disabled 103-Year-Old Mother-In-Law's Breasts
A long-serving Pennsylvania politician has been found guilty of touching his 103-year-old mother-in-law's breast during visits to her nursing home.

The Impeach-Trump Conspiracy
Patrick J. Buchanan
Pressed by Megyn Kelly on his ties to President Trump, an exasperated Vladimir Putin blurted out, "We had no relationship at all. ... I never met him. ... Have you all lost your senses over there?" Yes, Vlad, we have. Consider the questions that have convulsed this city since the Trump triumph, and raised talk of impeachment.
DICED is UN’s Environmental Constitution for the World and
Our Own Constitution Will be Diced

Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh
The fourth version of the [DICED] Covenant, issued on September 22, 2010, was written to control all development tied to the environment, “the highest form of law for all human activity.” The Covenant’s 79 articles, described in great detail in 242 pages, take Sustainable Development principles described in Agenda 21 and transform them into global law, which supersedes all constitutions including the U.S. Constitution. All signatory nations, including the U.S., would become centrally planned, socialist countries in which all decisions would be made within the framework of Sustainable Development.
NYT Scrambles to Fix ‘Almost Entirely Wrong’ Russia Scoop
After Comey Testimony

The paper of record reported Feb. 14 that U.S. intelligence officials had intercepted repeated communications between the Trump campaign and senior Russian intelligence officials in the year leading up to the election. The news firmly planted the as yet totally unsubstantiated narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to sway the election in his favor. But Comey characterized the report as almost entirely false Thursday, and the New York Times is now reviewing the report in light of his statements.
Marco Rubio: The Only Thing That was Never Leaked is the
Fact that the President was Not Under Investigation

He then reminded Comey that the Russia investigation "is full of leaks left and right," arguing that "we've learned more from the newspapers sometimes than we do from our open hearings, for sure." Rubio then dropped the hammer: "You ever wonder why of all the things in this investigation, the only thing that has never been leaked is the fact that the president is not personally under investigation?"
Former Official: Obama Admin ‘Systematically Disbanded’ Units Investigating Iran’s Terrorism Financing Networks
The United States squandered the chance "at a very low financial cost" to take apart Hezbollah's finances, its global organization, and the Iran proxy's ability to "readily terrorize us, victimize us, and run a criminal network through our shores, inside our banking systems – and in partnership with the world's foremost drug cartels – target our state and society," said David Asher.
U.S. Paid $1 Billion to Paris Agreement Green Fund –
All Other Nations Combined $0

The Paris Treaty was/is always about distribution of economic wealth; and the convenient use of "climate phrases" as branding instruments used to create political policy favorable to multinational corporate interests who control the shifting of economic wealth... The primary concern for every affiliated entity surrounds economics, not climate. "Climate" issues are the Trojan horse, the false ruse, the talking point, the scheme to get economic systems in place.

Share the Wealth: Developing Nations in Paris Accord
Threaten to Keep Polluting Unless They're Paid

When President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate accord last week, his critics – including former President Barack Obama – said he was turning his back on the future and joining only Syria and Nicaragua in refusing to take part. But for many that remain in the accord, the demands for cash are fueling the argument that the Paris agreement, at its core, is as much about redistributing international wealth as it is about saving the planet from climate change.
Protect the Eagles:
End U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 30-Year 'Take' Permits

Lisa Linowes
Everyone knows wind turbines slaughter birds despite the wind industry's best efforts to keep the public in the dark. Federal statutes that protect migratory birds and eagles are on the books but rarely enforced. For more than a decade, the wind industry, its boosters in the environmental movement, and officials – not biologists – at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) have worked systematically to weaken guidelines meant to protect eagles, migratory birds, and wildlife from the spinning blades.
Dems Fire at Trump But Shoot Comey Instead;
Comey Attachment to Clintons Goes Back to Little Rock

Judi McLeod
Comey’s long attachment to the Clintons goes all the way back to the Clinton White Water scandal when he was Special Agent in charge in Little Rock, Arkansas... Millions needed gag reflex protection to watch the coming out of Comey who admitted he followed the orders of then Attorney General Loretta Lynch in not identifying Clinton’s email scandal as an investigation... They did it for Hillary, of course, and when she lost the election to keep the lie of the Russians stealing the election alive and trending.

Rep. Nunes on Unmasking Subpoenas:
'Oh, This is Only the Beginning'

Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) of the House Select Intelligence Committee confirmed that all three subpoenas his committee sent to senior Obama administration officials seek details about the unmaskings of American citizens. He also said that it was "very unusual" for an ambassador like Samantha Power to unmask names of American citizens "under any circumstances."
NSA Leaker Hopes Being ‘White and Cute’
Will Help Get Her Off the Hook

Reality Leigh Winner, the 25-year-old government contractor who recently stole classified documents from the National Security Agency, has revealed her strategy for avoiding jail time: play the "pretty, white and cute" card. The plan, which Winner reportedly discussed with her sister from the Georgia detention center where she resides, is somewhat hypocritical since she has said on social media that "being white is terrorism."
Business Bright Spot – Trump Economy
The economy is emerging as a bright spot for President Trump as he struggles to move his congressional agenda amid a series of controversies. The S&P 500 is up more than 12 percent since Election Day, unemployment has reached a 16-year low and economic growth in the coming year is expected to reach 2.3 percent, more robust growth than the 1.6 percent it grew in 2016.

While No One was Looking,
Congress Took a Huge Step Toward Fixing the Economy

Investor´s Business Daily
Former FBI director James Comey´s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was the fixation of Washington on Thursday. But the big story was on the House side of Congress, which passed a bill to repeal the ruinous Dodd-Frank banking law. The Financial Choice Act, approved in the House by a 233-to-186 vote, has generated almost zero attention. But it has the potential to be the most economically beneficial legislation Congress will consider this year.

Canvassers for Democrat-Tied Group Charged in
Voter Registration Fraud Scheme

Twelve employees of an Indiana group tied to former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and former President Bill Clinton were charged Friday for allegedly submitting fake or fraudulent voter registration applications before the 2016 presidential election. The Indiana Voter Registration Project, an Indiana-based group focused on mobilizing and registering black voters, allegedly submitted an unknown number of falsified applications, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Where are all the reports of GOP led voter fraud cases? Ever wonder?
'Hoosier Hustle' was Questioned Just Prior to Nov. Election
Vote Fraud Detailed in Secret Search Warrant

In Danville, Indiana, west of Indianapolis, Hendricks County Clerk Debbie Hoskins reported to the state police on August 23 that her office has received several forged voter registration forms. It was the beginning of an investigation that resulted in a search warrant, just unsealed and seen Monday [November 7] for the first time. "This is going to take a long time to investigate. It's going to take several weeks and will likely take us past the election." (When it will be too late, of course!)

Our Crude News Network
Victor Davis Hanson
Progressive media bias is now a given. The present generation of journalists and reporters tends to believe that just conveying the news no longer offers ample venue for their unappreciated talents, celebrity status, and deserved political influence. As a result, they often massage coverage to find relevance as makers, not mere deliverers, of news.
Town Stands Up to Atheist Bullies, Refuses to Remove Cross
Todd Starnes
It was way back in 1930 when the good people of Neosho, Missouri installed a giant, lighted cross in the Big Spring Park. The cross, about 60-feet long, was the centerpiece of the town's annual Easter sunrise services. And while the sunrise services ended many years ago, the cross remained. For the past 87 years, not a single person in the community complained about the emblem – until last May.
After London: Let's Start Talking About Islam
Brendan O'Neill
'Watch out for an Islamophobic backlash', aloof observers say, their minds always more agitated by the thought of stupid white people saying something rude about Islam than by acts of Islamist mass murder. 'Don't say anything bad about this wonderful religion or its adherents', they tell us. This is a really bad response, because it is becoming increasingly clear that one of the major problems we face today is not that our society is too mean about Islam, but that it flatters Islam too much.
Poland:
Refusing to Import Muslims is Only Proven Counter-Terror Method

"When it comes to reducing the chances of Poland being hit by [Islamist] terror attacks, the only proven method is to not allow in Muslim migrants," Ryszard Czarnecki told local radio after an attack in London on Saturday killed seven and injured at least 48 others.
A Virginia Imam Said
Female Genital Mutilation Prevents 'hypersexuality'

A Virginia mosque has publicly condemned the words of its leading imam, highlighting lingering divisions among Muslim leaders over the controversial and widely rejected practice of female genital mutilation. The Board of Directors at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church said Monday that Imam Shaker Elsayed's seeming endorsement of the outlawed practice as "the honorable thing to do if needed" ran afoul of both U.S. and Islamic law.
Idaho: Muslim Refugees Who Sexually Assaulted 5-Year-Old Girl
Get Probation, Judge Silences Victims

It's as if it never happened. A judge sentenced three Muslim refugee boys in the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Idaho, but nobody knows the length or terms of the sentence because the judge has barred everyone in the courtroom, including the victim's own parents, from speaking about the case.
Israeli PM Calls for Dismantling of U.N. Palestinian Refugee Agency
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Sunday for the dismantling of the U.N. agency that aids millions of Palestinian refugees, accusing it of anti-Israeli incitement and saying he had conveyed his message to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. In public remarks to his cabinet at its weekly meeting, Netanyahu said UNRWA perpetuated, rather than solved, the Palestinian refugee problem and that anti-Israeli incitement was rife in its institutions, which includes schools.

London Police Commish Touts ‘Diversity’ of the Terror Victims

Carmine Sabia
This is what happens to a nation when political correctness usurps common sense. And if the left has its way, it could come to America. Commissioner of the London Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, spoke on Saturday about the victims of the June 3 London terror attacks, and her comments infuriated many on social media.

U.S. Navy Looking at Bringing Retired Carrier
USS Kitty Hawk Out of Mothballs

USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63)
As the US Navy struggles to figure out how it can reach its new goal of a 355 ship fleet – up from 275 ships today – as quickly as possible, it has been looking towards extending the life of the ships it already has in service. Now the service is also examining the possibility of selectively pulling ships out of mothballs, refurbishing them, and sending them back to the fleet.
Armed Protesters at Hermann Park Defend Sam Houston Statue
Hundreds of protesters, some of them armed, gathered at Hermann Park Saturday in an attempt to defend the honor of Sam Houston. Carrying Texas and Confederate flags, participants seemed concerned the park's Sam Houston statue might be removed since the historical figure owned slaves. "Erasing history for the sake of political correctness or to make somebody feel better, it's not just stupid – it's dangerous," said David Amad, an organizer of the demonstration.
Joe Biden’s Niece Dodges Jail After $100K Credit Card Scam
The wild-child niece of former Veep Joe Biden stole more than $100,000 in a credit card scam – and quietly cut a plea deal in Manhattan court that spares her any jail time... As part of a plea deal before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Kevin McGrath, Biden, 29, pleaded guilty to one charge of grand larceny and another of petit larceny and agreed to make restitution of $110,810.04.

Exiting the Mad Hatter’s Climate Tea Party
Paul Driessen
From suggestions that Earth's climate was balmy and stable until the modern industrial era, to assertions that humans can prevent climate change and extreme weather events by controlling atmospheric carbon dioxide levels – to claims that withdrawing from Paris would "imperil our planet's very survival" – the entire process has been driven by computer models and hysteria that have no basis in empirical science.
Reunification Only Way to Defuse Korea Crisis
John R. Bolton
Barack Obama's foreign-policy failures, and those of his predecessors, regarding North Korea, are coming back to bedevil Donald Trump's new presidency. Trump administration spokesmen have rightly said that Obama's policy of "strategic patience," a synonym for doing nothing, is over. But they have not yet articulated a replacement strategy.

U.S. Paid $1B to Green Climate Fund, Top Polluters Paid $0
The United States contributed $1 billion to the global Green Climate Fund, but the world's top polluters contributed nothing, David Asman reported. Asman said on "Forbes on Fox" that China, Russia and India contributed no money to the Green Climate Fund, yet that international community pressured the U.S. to join the Paris Climate Accord.
Congress Pushes to Counter Obama Labor Reforms
Congressional Republicans are attempting to guarantee workers the right to a secret ballot in union elections and allow members to more easily opt out of paying for union political activity after seeing the Obama administration and Democrats block previous efforts. "The rights of American workers were under attack during the Obama presidency, and it is time to restore those rights and work to foster a pro-growth, pro-employee environment," Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn) said in a statement.
The Truth About Your Health Care, ObamaCare and the CBO Numbers
Dr. Marc Siegel
It's easy to use numbers to define health realities, but life is far different in the doctor's office. What patients really want is access to basic health care, delivered by a doctor they can trust at an affordable price. Patients want choices, not narrow networks of providers and services and deductibles so high they never reach them.
Islam on Track to Overtake Christianity as World's No. 1 Religion
Muslims will double their share of the population in the United States by 2050 and surpass Christianity as the world's dominant religion by the end of the century, according to a Pew Research Center report released last week. The Pew study comes the same week that saw two acts of mass murder perpetrated by Muslim extremists.

What is the Washington Post Hiding About Its Jared Kushner Story?
The Washington Post editors refuse to publicly release the smoking gun "anonymous letter" that serves as the foundation of their sensational charge that White House advisor Jared Kushner sought a secret, back-channel to Russian officials. WaPo also claimed American intelligence agencies discovered the ploy through an intercepted open phone call by Kislyak to Moscow. Observers have noted that Kislyak, a seasoned spy, made the phone call on an "open line," and therefore knew it was likely to be intercepted.
Why CNN Dropped Kathy Griffin:
Her Trump 'joke' Repulsed the Country

Howard Kurtz
It turns out that somewhere in the entertainment world, there is a line. A line that Kathy Griffin crossed in such grotesque fashion that she wound up getting bounced by CNN. Perhaps the more interesting question is why on earth Griffin thought it was acceptable – even worse, funny – to pose with the image of a severed head, when the bloody mask represented Donald Trump.
She never apologized to Pres. Trump or Barron
CNN Caught Staging Fake News – Trots Out
Anti-ISIS Muslims to Express Outrage After London Attacks

As one of the more inept tentacles of the deep state, CNN was just caught staging Fake News in the aftermath of the ISIS claimed London attacks which claimed 7 lives and injured 48. While ISIS supporters are celebrating the attacks, MSM propagandists are hard at work pushing the "religion of peace" narrative – trotting out hijabbed women and a child to hold signs expressing Muslim outrage at the terrorist attacks. This wasn't an 'organic' protest against terrorism.
CNN's W. Kamau Bell: Islam Part of America's Founding
Joel B. Pollak
CNN's W. Kamau Bell devoted a recent episode of his series United Shades of America to exploring Muslim and Arab communities. Aside from some interesting vignettes, the program is left-wing, anti-Trump propaganda that firmly establishes the network's political bias. Bell also serves up some historical distortions of the sort spoonfed to undergraduates on politically-correct campuses, such as the claim that Islam has always been present in the U.S.
