H.R. McMaster’s Former Think Tank to Trump: Stop the ‘Adversarial Atmosphere’ With Iran

H.R. McMaster’s Former Think Tank to Trump: Stop the ‘Adversarial Atmosphere’ With Iran

NEW YORK — A UK-based, George Soros-funded think tank where White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster served for eleven years argued the Iran nuclear deal is “working” and that “policing Iran at gunpoint” – in other words, anytime, anywhere inspections of Iran’s nuclear sites – is a dangerous path. … Read entire article »

Salman Rushdie On Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings: Speak Severely To People Who Want To Propagate This

On the online-only Overtime portion of Bill Maher’s HBO program, Salman Rushdie is asked what is the antidote to political correctness on college campuses. “The antidote is to ignore it and to speak severely to people who want to propagate it,” Rushdie said. “I have to say in my experience in the American academy which is now going on for 20 years I have never had a student say to me that he wanted a ‘trigger warning’ or she wanted a ‘safe space.’ I hear that it happens around the country. I have no personal experience with it so I don’t know how much of it there is.” “I think what is missing is leadership,” panelist Bret Stephens said. “I think too much of too many campus administrators are basically cowed by … Read entire article »

Rubio: Never Sensed Trump Was “Gung Ho” About Deporting DREAMers; “Quite The Opposite”

Thursday on CNN’s ‘New Day,’ Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio stated the case that President Donald Trump hard stance on the Obama-era DACA immigration program was more about perception than reality. “Border security is a fundamental responsibility of federal government, and a wall is a part of that,” Rubio said. “But it is not the only part.” “A significant number of people in this country illegally didn’t cross the border. They come in on a visa. So you’ve got to deal with that.” (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); “I think a broken legal immigration system contributes to it as well,” he added. “As far as DACA is concerned, I don’t think the president has ever said he wanted to round up and deport young people educated in this country brought here as children.

Schatz-Care? Because the ACA’s working GREAT, Senate progs push single-payer proposal

**Written by Doug Powers Many Senate Democrats, joined by a certain anti-capitalist greed socialist with three homes, have begun pushing for the inevitable next step in what Obamacare was ultimately designed to become: Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Jeff Merkley of Oregon are the latest Democratic 2020 presidential prospects to announce their support for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ single-payer health care proposal. Sanders is set to introduce his legislation, which Democrats are calling “Medicare for all,” on Wednesday. It would replace private health insurance markets and have the federal government foot all medical bills. Already, two Democrats seen as potential presidential contenders, California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, have said they’ll co-sponsor the bill — as have Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz and Massachusetts Sen.

The Southern Poverty Law Center Almost Got Me Killed. Why Does the Media Still Propagate Its ‘Hate Map’?

When the elevator door opened in the lobby, my colleagues and I saw a man sitting, bleeding, surrounded by police. We stared in silence as police yelled at us to get back upstairs. The elevator door quietly closed, and we returned to our fifth-floor office. Up there, we hadn’t heard Floyd Corkins’ gunshot that hit our security guard, Leo Johnson—just the sudden rush and wail of police cars and ambulances filling our D.C. street. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Even after the scene in the lobby, it didn’t occur to us that the bleeding man was Leo, or that something had happened inside our own building. We just assumed that someone had been injured on the street outside and was receiving medical attention in the lobby of the Family Research Council building, where our D.C. … Read entire article »

This Ukrainian Regiment Began With Civilian Volunteers. Now It’s Going Pro.

URZUF, Ukraine—At the Azov Regiment’s base in this beach resort town on the Sea of Azov coast, you can sometimes hear the sounds of shelling from the front lines, which are about 42 miles east of here, toward the Russian border. Yet, on this blustery summer day in late August, tourists are out swimming on the public beach down below the military base—even though it’s a little cold out and there’s a war 45 minutes away by car. Even in war, after all, life goes on. Those intrepid tourists are enjoying the last few days of summer before students go back to school on Sept. 1. As summer fades to a close before the new school year, the war was also supposed to end on Sept. 1 as part of a “back … Read entire article »

Trump’s Justice Department Still Defending Obama Contraception Mandate

Advocates for religious liberty are dismayed that little has changed with respect to the Obamacare contraceptive mandate, even after President Donald Trump signed a religious freedom executive order earlier this year. “I believe the president is committed to religious freedom and that Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions is a good man. But their goals simply haven’t played out,” Douglas Wilson, CEO of the Catholic Benefits Association, told The Daily Signal. The Supreme Court punted on the Little Sisters of the Poor’s religious liberty case against the Obama Department of Health and Human Services, though broadly gave the Catholic charity a victory in vacating lower court rulings and asking that parties submit proposals to settle the situation.

The Rise of Gingrich in the Reagan Revolution

The Rise of Gingrich in the Reagan Revolution

The Republican House was divided against itself: President Ronald Reagan, his Crazies, and much of the muscular New Right on one side—the GOP establishment, moderate Vice President George H.W. Bush, and Minority Leader Bob Michel on the other. The Crazies—Reps. Newt Gingrich and Robert Smith Walker—sent a scathing letter to their GOP colleagues, calling for support for an Ethics Committee investigation of no less than 17 Democratic members. They said the House was experiencing a “crisis … Read entire article »

As Surplus Military Equipment Is Used in Houston, White House Changes Policy Enacted After Ferguson

Flat bottom boats were part of the Texas rescue efforts after the weekend flooding, after Hurricane Harvey, noted Ron Hosko, president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund. The same is true of rescue helicopters formerly used by the military and high axle vehicles that can drive through water, Hosko added. All are examples of surplus military equipment that police previous obtained through a Defense Department program, which was restricted by an executive order from President Barack Obama in 2015—an executive order President Donald Trump plans to reverse. “We’ve seen time and again that police departments can’t afford to buy this equipment that saves lives, protecting law enforcement and protecting citizens,” Hosko, whose organization defends police officers in court, told The Daily Signal.

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.

Hollywood Wants to Force This Profanity-Filtering Service Out of Business, and May Succeed

The ideological and philosophical divide between Republicans and Democrats has seldom, if ever, been broader and deeper, and the divide between partisans in the degree of their aversion to swearing in feature films is just the latest manifestation of that. A new Harris poll—commissioned by the makers of a forthcoming faith-based film, “Generational Sins,” that itself reportedly contains 32 profanities—found that Republicans are offended by swearing more than Democrats are, by a margin of nearly 2-to-1. Nearly half (45 percent) of Republicans surveyed, compared with just 1 in 4 (25 percent) Democrats, find the “F-bomb” objectionable, for example, the poll found.

Trump Justice Department Ends Operation Choke Point

Republican House members announced Friday that the Justice Department has ended the controversial Obama-era program targeting payday lenders, gun shops, and other legal businesses, in response to several House Republicans who requested Operation Choke Point be shut down. “This is no way for law enforcement to operate,” House Republicans say. “We share your view that law-abiding businesses should not be targeted simply for operating in an industry that a particular administration might disfavor,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote the GOP lawmakers in a letter dated Aug. 16. The letter continued, saying the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation “subsequently rescinded its list of purportedly ‘high risk’ merchants. The Department of Justice (Department) strongly agrees with that withdrawal. All of the Department’s bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Choke Point are now over, the … Read entire article »

2 Former Wasserman Schultz IT Aides Indicted for Conspiracy Against US

A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology aides of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.—Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alv—on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend to return to the U.S., according to the FBI.

Far-Left Antifa Agitators on the Rise in the Age of Trump

When self-described anti-fascists showed up in force Saturday to oppose a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, some of them turned violent, according to media reports and eyewitness accounts.
