We Should Be Talking About Tax Reform, Not Instagram Posts

Once again, we’re not living in boring times. This time the Twitterverse and the media are up in arms over an Instagram post and comment from Scottish actress Louise Linton, who is married to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Posting on Instagram, a social media site that allows you to share photos online (and encourages glamorous shots by providing an array of filters and editing tools to help you polish your photos), Linton shared a photo of herself getting off a government plane, captioning it, according to screenshots circulating the internet, “Great #daytrip to #Kentucky!” and then mentioning some of the designer brands she was wearing, including Tom Ford, Valentino, and Hermes. Linton was on the trip with her husband and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who represents the Bluegrass State. But one woman, identified … Read entire article »

Disagreement Isn’t Hate, Despite What the Left Says

Last week, I made a short video about how the media and the Southern Poverty Law Center were getting “hate” wrong, slandering good groups such as the Family Research Council and Alliance Defending Freedom by calling them hate groups. Liberal activists disagree with conservatives on marriage & gender identity.But it’s wrong to think every disagreement is the result of hate pic.twitter.com/IKxeAqjrbp — Ryan T. Anderson (@RyanTAnd) August 21, 2017 Liberal activist groups do this because they disagree with conservatives on marriage and gender identity. But it’s wrong to think every disagreement is the result of hate. Anti-gay bigotry exists. It’s wrong. And we should condemn it. But support for marriage as the union of husband and wife isn’t anti-gay. Believing the truth about marriage—that it unites a man and woman as husband and wife in … Read entire article »

Harvard Professor Calls Out Antifa for Trying to ‘Tear Down America’

Harvard Professor Calls Out Antifa for Trying to ‘Tear Down America’

Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday that liberals should not treat Antifa members as heroes for tearing down Confederate monuments because they are trying to “tear down America.” “Do not glorify the violent people who are now tearing down the statues. Many of these people, not all of them, many of these people are trying to tear down America. Antifa is a radical, anti-America, anti-free market, communist, socialist, hard-left sensorial organization that tries to stop speakers … Read entire article »

Big Labor Donates to SPLC Following Charlottesville

Big Labor Donates to SPLC Following Charlottesville

ACLU Goes Soft on First Amendment Rights of Gun Carriers

On the heels of deadly protests and counterprotests in Charlottesville, Virginia, the American Civil Liberties Union has stated it will no longer defend the First Amendment rights of “hate groups” seeking to lawfully exercise their right to openly carry firearms. This announcement followed a highly circulated article published by Slate, which accused open carry militias of stifling speech through threats of violence and accused those exercising open carry of bringing firearms with the intent to “hurt people they want to see extinguished.” It called for a re-evaluation of Second Amendment jurisprudence and decried the idea that “guns won” against the First Amendment in Charlottesville. Apparently, the guns won without firing a single bullet or causing a single injury. Despite Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s claim that 80 percent of protesters came armed with semi-automatic … Read entire article »

Trump Lays Out a Winning Strategy for Afghanistan

After months of speculation and delay, President Donald Trump has sided with the expert advice of his military and national security team on the way forward to the U.S. mission in Afghanistan. In what was by far his best and most statesmanlike speech since taking office, Trump outlined a new approach Monday night to the ongoing war in Afghanistan: a laser-like focus on counterterrorism, jettisoning the quixotic nation-building rhetoric of the past, helping the Afghans defeat the Taliban insurgency (not doing it for them), lifting onerous restrictions placed by the Obama administration on the way the military conducts warfighting, and pressuring Pakistan and its support for certain elements of the Taliban. Crucially, Trump made clear that under his watch, progress in Afghanistan will be measured by conditions on the ground and not … Read entire article »

What Still Unites Us? By Patrick J. Buchanan

Decades ago, a debate over what kind of nation America is roiled the conservative movement. Neocons claimed America was an “ideological nation” a “creedal nation,” dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal.” … Read entire article »

ACLU laments promoting white supremacy by showing little kid with US flag

**Written by Doug Powers The ACLU, which has been under fire recently for defending free speech for everybody, temporarily spotted a future they wanted for America: This is the future that ACLU members want. pic.twitter.com/bAIwuheEco — ACLU National (@ACLU) August 23, 2017 What could possibly go wrong?

Anti-Trump movement enters acrostic phase of Resistance

**Written by Doug Powers “UC Berkeley professor” and “Trump administration” were never destined to be love connections, but one triggered State Dept. science envoy added a flair of cryptic Resistance to his break-up letter: A University of California-Berkeley energy professor resigned Wednesday from his position as a State Department science envoy, blasting President Donald Trump for recent comments on white supremacist violence in Charlottesville. The professor, Daniel Kammen, included a less-than-subtle assessment of Trump in his resignation letter by spelling out the word “impeach” with the first letters of each paragraph. Trump’s response to Charlottesville has hastened the eco-apocalypse, or something: Mr. President, I am resigning as Science Envoy. Your response to Charlottesville enables racism, sexism, & harms our country and planet. pic.twitter.com/eWzDc5Yw6t — Daniel M Kammen (@dan_kammen) August 23, 2017 I’d be shocked if there’s … Read entire article »
