‘I Wouldn’t Pick on America’: The War on ISIS Gets Personal for the US Navy

USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH, Mediterranean Sea—The sound of aircraft launching off the flight deck rumble deep within the bowels of the aircraft carrier. Conversations in the officers’ mess room, where I’m having chicken cacciatore for lunch, dutifully pause while the jet engines above decks run up to full afterburner. Then, the walls and floor shudder when the steam-powered catapults launch the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet strike fighters and the EA-18G Growler electronic warfare jets off the flight deck at an acceleration of zero to 184 miles per hour in just two seconds. Just by the sound of it, there’s no way of knowing if each successive launch is for combat or for training. But there’s a good chance the jet you hear is headed to war. Each day about 16 to 24 … Read entire article »

Ben Shapiro, Adam Carolla Call on Colleges to Teach Students Civil Disagreement

Instead of disinviting controversial speakers, college administrators should model civil disagreement for students, say Ben Shapiro and Adam Carolla. Shapiro, editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, and Carolla, a comedian and radio host, testified Thursday before a joint subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on campus challenges to free speech. “You can’t put students in a bubble and expect them to come out stronger,” said Carolla of administrators who disinvite or obstruct speakers in response to student protests. Shapiro had a similar take, saying, “a healthy nation requires a population ready to engage in open debate at any time.” The hearing, the second in a series of subcommittee panels highlighting First Amendment issues, occurred amid increasing tensions on campuses over free speech. Shapiro, who has encountered multiple speech obstructions at college … Read entire article »

New Report Exposes Thousands of Illegal Votes in 2016 Election

A new bombshell study released by the Government Accountability Institute shows why President Donald Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity has such an important job ahead of it. The institute concluded in its report that thousands of votes in the 2016 election were illegal duplicate votes from people who registered and voted in more than one state. The Government Accountability Institute, founded by Peter Schweizer, author of “Clinton Cash,” seeks to “investigate and expose crony capitalism, misuse of taxpayer monies, and other governmental corruption or malfeasance.” Over the last few months, the institute sought to obtain “public voter information” from every state in order to search for duplicate votes. This is the same type of information the president’s Election Integrity Commission has requested. With this report, we may have a clue as to why … Read entire article »

3 Republicans Join Democrats to Defeat Obamacare Repeal

Republican Sens. John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins joined Democrats to keep Obamacare, at least for now. The “skinny repeal” bill managed to get only 49 votes, with every Democrat and the three Republicans voting against the scaled-down version of the repeal and replace bill.  Just before 2 a.m. Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., noted that for seven years, Republicans have promised to repeal and replace Obamacare. “We told our constituents we would vote that way and when the moment came, most of us did,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “Our friends on the other side decided early on they didn’t want to engage with us in a serious way to help those suffering under Obamacare.” “I’m proud of the vote I cast tonight, consistent with what we told the … Read entire article »

What Jeff Sessions Thinks About Trump’s Attacks

Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he’s hurt by President Donald Trump’s recent criticism, but he’s confident he made the right decision recusing himself from the Russia investigation. In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that aired Thursday night, Sessions vowed to continue his work as the nation’s top law enforcement officer. “I’m confident I made the right decision, a decision that’s consistent for the rule of law,” Sessions said. “An attorney general who doesn’t follow the law isn’t very effective in leading the Department of Justice.” In recent days, Trump has faced mounting criticism from Republicans and conservatives for attacking Sessions, one of his most loyal supporters and a staunch ally on a range of policy goals. The post What Jeff Sessions Thinks About Trump’s Attacks appeared first on The Daily Signal. … Read entire article »

In Video, Planned Parenthood Medical Chief Tells How to Get Around Ban on Partial-Birth Abortion

A new undercover video shows a top physician at a Planned Parenthood affiliate discussing how her organization routinely circumvents federal law regulating certain late-term abortions. In the latest hidden-camera video from the Center for Medical Progress, Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, vice president of medical affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, talks about using a “checkbox” to get around the 2003 law banning partial-birth abortion. In the video, released Thursday as the Senate again debates defunding the nation’s largest abortion provider, Prabhakaran speaks with investigators from the pro-life group posing as buyers of fetal tissue from a biotech company. Prabhakaran is seen explaining that to circumvent federal law against partial-birth abortions—in which the unborn baby is extracted partway and then killed—Planned Parenthood doctors document their intent either to perform a dismemberment abortion … Read entire article »

‘Dunkirk’ Shows Why Nationhood Really Matters

They were practically kids, and they were sitting ducks. In the summer of 1940, roughly 400,000 British troops stood stranded on a beach in Dunkirk, France, besieged by an advancing German army and targeted by a swarming German air force. They had been Western Europe’s best hope for liberation. Now, pushed to the edge of the continent, they stood awaiting their fate: a miraculous rescue, or death. Few Americans are likely to have heard of Dunkirk in the year 2017. This early episode of World War II history had fallen into relative obscurity, overshadowed by the more celebrated Allied feats at Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, the liberation of Paris, etc. But film director Christopher Nolan has now brought it roaring back to life in a vivid recreation on screen. His film “Dunkirk” … Read entire article »

Republicans Promise to Make Your Taxes ‘Simpler, Fairer, and Lower’

Republicans Promise to Make Your Taxes ‘Simpler, Fairer, and Lower’

Republicans are working to find a way to raise enough revenue to offset their plans for steep tax cuts after tax writers and the Trump administration announced Thursday that the border adjustment tax is officially off the table. The border adjustment tax—a key revenue raiser in the House GOP’s “A Better Way” tax reform proposal—was strongly supported by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, who argued that it was the best … Read entire article »

4 House Republicans Seek Answers on FBI Probe of Clinton Emails

As President Donald Trump calls for the Justice Department to probe the actions of his vanquished opponent, Hillary Clinton, four Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee want another look at the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton email scandal. The four Republican lawmakers—Florida’s Matt Gaetz, Arizona’s Andy Biggs, Ohio’s Jim Jordan, and Louisiana’s Mike Johnson—filed an amendment Wednesday directing an investigation into how then-FBI Director James Comey’s managed the case. The lawmakers’ interest comes after Comey, ousted May 9 by Trump, told a Senate panel in June that, during the Obama administration, Attorney General Loretta Lynch had directed Comey to call the FBI’s probe of Clinton’s private email server a “matter” instead of an “investigation.” Comey also told the Senate Judiciary Committee in May that Lynch’s meeting with Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, … Read entire article »

How Britain’s Surrender to the UN Led to Charlie Gard’s Fate

The heartbreaking story of British infant Charlie Gard has transfixed me. Five years ago, my wife almost lost her life during pregnancy complications. Our first son was born early, weighing just 2 pounds. We went through many scary times during the six weeks he was in the NICU. God was merciful to us. Today, Dominic is a healthy, happy boy. During the entire time, there was never any doubt that my wife and I were making the decisions on how to care for and protect our son. This is why Charlie and his parents’ ordeal has hit me so hard. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be told that a faceless bureaucrat would decide if our son lived or died. But that is what happened in England to Charlie’s parents. How … Read entire article »

Michael Moore tells fractured nation to choose between him, or Trump

**Written by Doug Powers With the Russia collusion case falling apart before it could even be constructed, the Democrats continue to look for anything they can find to add to the articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. For now they’re down to “We have to or Michael Moore will leave the country.” Far-left political activist and film-maker Michael Moore is about to debut on Broadway, in a show called “The Terms of My Surrender.” On Wednesday night, Moore discussed the show with Stephen Colbert, who asked him – “What are the terms of Michael Moore’s surrender?” “You have to come see the show,” Moore said. “I will tell you this. I will say this. I will say this. I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is president, and I’m not leaving. … Read entire article »
