Obama Holdovers Still in Key National Security Council Jobs

Several Obama holdovers who led initiatives at odds with President Donald Trump’s foreign policy remain on the staff of national security adviser H.R. McMaster, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. About 40 of the National Security Council’s 250 officials—nearly 1 in 6—are Obama administration holdovers, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s analysis. The holdovers include council directors for Korea, China, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, Eastern Europe, Israel-Palestine, South America, North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa. Holdovers also advise on weapons of mass destruction, counterterrorism, nonproliferation, arms control, defense policy, immigration, and homeland preparedness. It’s been common practice in previous administrations to retain holdovers from an outgoing administration, and nearly all are on loan from other federal agencies. But current and former administration officials say they are concerned that so many Obama-era … Read entire article »

How Trump Can Avoid Getting Bogged Down While Draining the Swamp

Military veterans, trying to get medical care or other services, face a maze of subagencies in the Department of Veterans Affairs. And that’s just one of many reasons for making the federal government more efficient, policy experts say. “The VA has 42 different offices, including 14 specifically related to health,” said Rachel Greszler, research fellow in economics, budget, and entitlements with The Heritage Foundation. “These things just create a bureaucratic nightmare for veterans who are seeking integrated services, one stop to go to for all of their needs as opposed to 42 different offices, [and the veteran] responsible for taking documentation from one to another,” Greszler added Tuesday during a panel discussion at the think tank’s Capitol Hill headquarters. Also on the panel were an official from the first administration of President Ronald … Read entire article »

Al Gore’s Carbon Footprint Hypocrisy

Al Gore’s carbon footprint is the size of Godzilla’s, but to hear the liberal New Republic magazine’s Emily Atkin tell it, it really “doesn’t matter.” But it doesn’t really matter only if “do as I say, not as I do” has become the credo of Gore and his fellow climate change alarmists. The size of Gore’s carbon footprint has become an issue with the Aug. 4 theatrical release of “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” the follow-up to “An Inconvenient Truth,” his 2006 global warming horror film. Inconveniently for Gore, the sequel is bombing at the box office after receiving mixed reviews from film critics and moviegoers alike. The new film has grossed a meager $2.3 million domestically as of Aug. 13, according to Boxofficemojo.com. As the foremost Chicken Little of the movement warning … Read entire article »

Down Syndrome in Iceland Is ‘Disappearing’ Because of Abortion

The headline is shocking: Down syndrome is virtually disappearing in Iceland. More accurately, people with Down syndrome are being eliminated in Iceland through abortion. As prenatal testing becomes more and more widespread across the world, the number of babies born with Down syndrome and other conditions has decreased because when parents opt for screening that reveals an abnormality, many opt to end the pregnancy. Down syndrome happens when a person has an extra chromosome, which alters development, physical traits, and increases the risk for medical conditions like heart defects and hearing problems. Life expectancy for a person with Down syndrome was only 25 years old in 1983. But now, just a few decades later, life expectancy has dramatically increased to 60 years old. The National Down Syndrome Society points out that people with Down syndrome … Read entire article »

The 3-Step Argument the Left Makes to Justify Violence Against Conservative Speakers

Ben Shapiro delivered the remarks below during a hearing July 27 on the issue of free speech on college campuses.  Free speech is under assault because of a three-step argument made by the advocates and justifiers of violence. The first step is they say that the validity or invalidity of an argument can be judged solely by the ethnic, sexual, racial, or cultural identity of the person making the argument. The second step is that they claim those who say otherwise are engaging in what they call “verbal violence,” and the final step is they conclude that physical violence is sometimes justified in order to stop such verbal violence. So let’s examine each of these three steps in turn. First, the philosophy of intersectionality. This philosophy now dominates college campuses as well as a … Read entire article »

Mob Rule Prevails in Toppling of Confederate Statue

Following the ugly incident that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend, an unruly mob took out its anger on a century-old statue in North Carolina. It is a perfect example of how tribal and identity politics are raging out of control in America, and how radicals will continue to ratchet up their tactics to match one another. While the media spent its time connecting riots to the political right, the hard left continued to step up its tactics to promote social discord, as it has been doing for years. On Monday afternoon, a crowd of people in an “Emergency Durham Protest” marched down Durham’s Main Street, then made its way to the Durham County Courthouse. The Herald Sun reported that organizations like the “Triangle People’s Assembly, Workers World Party, Industrial Workers of the … Read entire article »

Lib journos storm beaches of idiocy

Lib journos storm beaches of idiocy

**Written by Doug Powers Just seven months into the Trump presidency and the liberal media have already reached the summit of Mt. Lunacy: Journalists and major liberal news outlets have compared violent American flag-burning protesters to soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy — all while downplaying the leftists’ violence. The protesters, known as antifa (short for anti-fascist), often advocate for communism and have been deemed a domestic terrorist movement by New Jersey. Persons associated with the movement … Read entire article »
