The Left’s Revealing Freakout Over Trump’s Defense of the West

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. Said freakout is, to be honest, well deserved. If Trump carries through with a campaign to defeat the multicultural assault on Western civilization, he would be finally responding to what has been a sustained and, so far, singularly successful leftist attempt to fundamentally transform America and her European allies. Only time will tell if Trump has the intestinal fortitude needed to see through such a mission. Undoubtedly the left will fight back with … Read entire article »

Jobs Report Stronger Than Expected, but More Must Be Done to Boost the Economy

Despite the low rumble of an economic slowdown on the horizon from various experts predicting the worst is to come, the Trump administration will no doubt be happy to say the experts were wrong with the July jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday. It reports the economy added 222,000 jobs, which represents a significant increase over expert predictions of 158,000 jobs. The June unemployment rate was virtually unchanged at 4.4 percent, and the labor force participation rate crept up to 62.8 percent after four months of decline. In addition to this, the Bureau of Labor Statistics revised upward its April payroll numbers by 33,000 jobs, from 174,000 to 207,000. Also, the May numbers were revised up 14,000 jobs from 138,000 to 152,000. This increases the average number of … Read entire article »

Meet the Colorado Woman Training Teachers to Use Guns to Stop School Violence

This fall, some Colorado teachers will return to school armed with knowledge—and guns. Laura Carno, author of “Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants,” is bringing advanced firearms training to school teachers. “Can government stop school shooting[s]? The answer is no … How do we as a community keep our kids safer if we say government is not the right place to fix that problem?” Carno told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Her answer is a training program called the Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response, or FASTER. Carno’s nonprofit Second Amendment advocacy group, Coloradans for Civil Liberties, planned to bring the program to Colorado teachers this summer. The Program FASTER trains school workers “not to replace police and EMT, but to allow teachers, administrators, and … Read entire article »

Cruz, Lee Push Amendment to GOP Health Care Bill to Give Insurers More Options

Two conservative senators are proposing an amendment to the GOP’s health care bill that would give consumers more leeway to purchase the health insurance of their choice. Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Mike Lee, R-Utah, announced an amendment called the Consumer Freedom Option that would allow insurance companies to sell any health coverage plan they wish as long as they provide one plan that satisfies the mandates of Obamacare, Townhall reported. Sen. Ted Cruz handed these out today in Senate lunch. How he can get to yes. pic.twitter.com/WYeQYxbcLe — Lauren Fox (@FoxReports) June 22, 2017 “A key piece, I think, to getting [the GOP health care bill] passed is an amendment I’ve introduced that I hope will be in the final bill,” Cruz said Wednesday during an interview with Texas radio host Mark Davis.

Trump Defends the West

There is something about a crisis and a foreign venue that brings out the best in an American president. In June 1963, when the Berlin Wall seemed permanent and the Iron Curtain impenetrable, President John F. Kennedy traveled to West Berlin to reassure the captive peoples of Eastern and Central Europe they had not been forgotten. In perhaps the most eloquent speech of his presidency, Kennedy proclaimed: “All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin and therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words ‘Ich bin ein Berliner.’” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Kennedy’s inspiring words heartened the millions living under communism behind the Iron Curtain and stiffened the resolve of the free world to challenge Soviet aggression. In June 1987, in the 42nd year of the Cold War, … Read entire article »

NY Times’ David Brooks describes ordeal of lunching with a rube

**Written by Doug Powers Michelle wrote years ago that NYT columnist David Brooks will “never let an opportunity pass to remind you that he is an intellectual and you are a grimy member of the unwashed masses.” Brooks’ Tuesday column proves that nothing’s changed: I was braced by Reeves’s book, but after speaking with him a few times about it, I’ve come to think the structural barriers he emphasizes are less important than the informal social barriers that segregate the lower 80 percent. Recently I took a friend with only a high school degree to lunch. Insensitively, I led her into a gourmet sandwich shop. Suddenly I saw her face freeze up as she was confronted with sandwiches named “Padrino” and “Pomodoro” and ingredients like soppressata, capicollo and a striata baguette. I quickly … Read entire article »

The proceeds go to Planned Parenthood, which in turn goes to Democrats, who in turn complain that PP doesn’t have enough money and needs continued taxpayer funding.

Science! More proof that climate change alarmists have ALL the bases covered

**Written by Doug Powers Popular Science, yesterday: Popular Science, March of last year: It certainly looks like they’ve got all the “climate change” bases covered there. Climate “science” sure can turn on a dime! All we can really be sure of is no matter what happens this coming winter — record warmth or historic cold — it’ll be because Trump ripped up the Paris Agreement. What say you, Al Gore? Thought so.
