CNN Documentary Gets Reagan’s Legacy Wrong

Is it possible to devote 90 minutes of prime TV time to Ronald Reagan as an actor who changed the presidency through his use of the mass media and still miss why he was a great communicator? CNN did it with its all too predictable documentary, “The Reagan Show.” The producers presented all the liberal clichés: Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale, declaring that Reagan was “out of touch, never in charge;” liberal arms controller Paul Warnke, dismissing SDI (the Strategic Defense Initiative) as “Star Wars;” ABC reporter Sam Donaldson, saying that Reagan lived in a “Norman Rockwell world;” TV anchors intoning in the wake of the Iran-Contra affair that Reagan “had a last chance to save his presidency.” What the producers did not provide was even a minimum of context for the soundbites. … Read entire article »

Communistic Venezuela, Where Barack Obama and the Deep State Are Still Moving America!

Communistic Venezuela, Where Barack Obama and the Deep State Are Still Moving America!

Socialism in America Barack Obama and his Socialistic agenda are still active even after the defeat of Hillary Clinton. He has used the Socialistic arm of the American media in outlets like MSNBC and CNN to bring about change. The Obama administration spied on America citizens and unmasked American citizens just like any other Socialistic / Communistic leader would do. I never understood as the Obama administration would enact laws or executive orders that never made sense. This … Read entire article »

Few Think Government Has Consent of the Governed

The Declaration of Independence says that governments derive their authority from the consent of the governed, but only one-in-four voters think the American government today has that consent. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 23% of Likely U.S. Voters think the federal government today has the consent of the governed. Fifty-seven percent (57%) do not, but 20% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.) (Want a free daily e-mail update? If it’s in the news, it’s in our polls). Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook. The survey of 1,000 Likely U.S. Voters was conducted by Rasmussen Reports on July 16-17, 2017. The margin of sampling error for the survey is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen … Read entire article »

France Is Once Again a Battleground for the Soul of Europe

President Donald Trump followed up a successful week in Europe with a visit to France for Bastille Day and the 100-year commemoration of America’s entrance into World War I. He also held a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron to talk about the Syrian civil war, the Middle East, terrorism, and other topics concerning both countries. While the two leaders have had a fairly rocky relationship so far, this is an important gesture for two countries that share so much history—whether they like it or not. In a sense, Trump is following up on his Poland speech, in which he appealed to the Polish people’s greatest national mores while calling for the country to embrace its role in Western civilization against forces that mean to destroy it. Despite serious differences in policy … Read entire article »

Trump Says West Must ‘Fight Like the Poles.’ Meet the Polish Soldier Who Fought for Our Freedom.

“Together, let us all fight like the Poles—for family, for freedom, for country, and for God.” Those were the words of President Donald Trump as he delivered a speech at Warsaw’s Krasinski Square in central Poland. Trump highlighted both the longstanding connection between the United States and Poland, as well as the enduring need for the West to stand strong in the face of tyranny. In a clear reference to the menace of Islamist terrorism, Trump said: “Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield—it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls.” Poland knows what it means to encounter a threat. It faced the twin evils of Nazism and communism during the 20th century, starting when Germany and the USSR invaded in 1939 and ending with the … Read entire article »

How One Man Helped Propel the American Revolution

That the brilliant wordsmith Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence is indisputable, but a lesser-known fact is that the man who played the indispensable role in its adoption by the Continental Congress in July 1776 was John Adams of Massachusetts, our second president. Jefferson later confirmed Adams’ role as the tireless “floor manager” of the declaration: No man better merited than Mr. John Adams to hold a most conspicuous place in the design. He was the pillar of its support on the floor of Congress, its ablest advocate and defender against the multifarious assaults encountered. As historian David McCullough has written, tension in the congressional debate was heightened by the sighting of a hundred British ships off New York, the first arrivals of a fleet that would number … Read entire article »

Is America Still a Nation? By Patrick J. Buchanan

In the first line of the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson speaks of “one people.” The Constitution, agreed upon by the Founding Fathers in Philadelphia in 1789, begins, “We the people…” And who were these “people”? … Read entire article »

The Left Is Trying to Rewrite American History. We Must Stop Them.

George Orwell said, “The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” In the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, censorship, rewriting of history, and eliminating undesirable people became part of Soviets’ effort to ensure that the correct ideological and political spin was put on their history. Deviation from official propaganda was punished by confinement in labor camps and execution. Today there are efforts to rewrite history in the U.S., albeit the punishment is not so draconian as that in the Soviet Union. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu had a Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee monument removed last month. Former Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton wanted the statue of Confederate Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, as well as the graves of Forrest and his wife, removed … Read entire article »

We Hear You: ‘Elitist Media Believe Themselves Superior’

Editor’s note: The pretensions of the “mainstream media” remain on the minds of our audience. Today’s collection of mail kicks off with those concerns. Got an urge to write us? See how below.—Ken McIntyre Dear Daily Signal: The Washington Post’s attack on The Daily Signal’s participation in the White House press pool is an egregious confrontation that highlights the difference between elite and citizen journalism (“The Daily Signal Won’t Be Bullied by the Establishment Media“). The reason the elitist press wish to deny access to a non-elitist press: They fear they will lose their influence and power. This power struggle between the two is nothing new or unusual, and we are hearing about it now because of President Trump’s battle with elite news sources, more often referred to as the “mainstream media.”  This … Read entire article »

Remembering George Washington’s New Year’s Victory Over the British at Princeton

PRINCETON, N.J.—What began as a retreat from battle-hardened, bayonet-wielding British soldiers 240 years ago, Gen. George Washington reorganized into a counterattack after arriving with well-armed reinforcements in a place known as Maxwell’s Field. This battleground in Princeton, New Jersey, is where the U.S. War of Independence reached a critical turning point. “Parade with us, my brave fellows!” Washington is said to have called out to his troops, “and we will have them directly.” A tall and imposing figure even by today’s standards, Washington was “an easy mark for any British soldier” while mounted on his white horse, historian David Hackett Fischer recounts in his book “Washington’s Crossing.” An 1848 painting by American artist William T. Ranney is titled “Washington Rallying the Americans at the Battle of Princeton.” (Photo: Princeton University Art Museum/Princeton Battlefield Society) But … Read entire article »

Despite Conservative Victories in 2016, Assisted Suicide Has Gained Ground

While the nation’s attention has been squarely on President-elect Donald Trump’s win in recent weeks, election night also saw several significant losses for conservatives. Among these is Colorado’s Proposition 106, known as the End of Life Options Act, which passed by an astounding two-thirds percentage and effectively legalized suicide in that state. Proposition 106 signals a stark shift in the cultural and legal landscape in one of the nation’s most purple states. Colorado became one of the first two states to legalize marijuana in 2012, and over the past four years, it has been one of the top two states in receiving an influx of young professionals under 40. Even though local mainstream media and editorial opinions that are not typically conservative came out strongly against the measure, it still passed at the … Read entire article »

Getting Rid of Electoral College Would Mean a Tyrannical Rule of the Majority

It is alleged that Hillary Clinton won a popular vote majority. Therefore, if the nation were not burdened with the antiquated Electoral College, anguished and freaked-out Americans whine, she, instead of Donald Trump, would be the next president of the United States. You say, “Hold it. Before you go further, Williams, what do you mean it is alleged that Clinton received most of the popular vote? It’s a fact.” I say “alleged” because, according to Gregg Phillips of True the Vote, an estimated 3 million noncitizens voted. Presumably, those votes went to Clinton. In 2000, Al Gore won the popular vote just as Clinton allegedly did. Such outcomes have led to calls to abandon the Constitution’s Article 2 provision for the state electors to select presidents. Despite the fact that the system has served … Read entire article »

If At First You Don’t Secede: Another wacky comedy is being produced in California

**Written by Doug Powers The desperation to escape Trump is ratcheting up in California: “Should California become a free, sovereign, and independent country?” The question could appear on a statewide ballot in 2018 if a group of secessionists has its way. Yes California has been pushing for the state to break away from the United States and become its own country for several years. Marcus Evans, the vice president of Yes California, filed a proposed ballot measure with the Attorney General’s Office on Monday that would appear on the November 2018 gubernatorial ballot. “We always thought that if we just connected with the people who thought about this, but didn’t tell their friends and family because they would be seen as kooky and weird, that the quiet population would become vocal,” Evans said. “If you don’t … Read entire article »

The Continuing Relevance of the Constitution

Public policy is often exciting and urgent. When a war begins or ends, when votes are counted in an election, or when a major bill is passed, everyone senses the magnitude of the event. Some struggles end and new struggles begin. Consequences carry far into the future. Compared to this, and especially given the way we think today, the Constitution seems like a boring subject. But how do we know whether the public policies we adopt are good? How do we know whether the results of the election will be happy? How even do we know if the war we have fought was worth it? Those questions cannot be answered except by reference to things that are outside the immediate excitement and even our immediate needs. These larger and more enduring things cannot be … Read entire article »

Thanksgiving Through the Years

George Washington was first in war, first in peace, and in November 1789, the first president to proclaim a national day of thanksgiving, openly acknowledging God as the source of all “the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.” Among the “favors” were a Declaration of Independence that inspires us to the present day, a remarkable military victory over the most powerful nation in the world, and an ingenious Constitution of checks and balances that places “we the people” at the center of our government. For the next fourscore and seven years, most states honored a November date as a day of prayer and fasting, but there was no national celebration. Of the early presidents, only James Madison, in 1814 and 1815, issued proclamations. Then in November … Read entire article »

Thomas Jefferson Now Politically Incorrect at the University He Founded

A group of students and professors at the University of Virginia want to give the founder of their school the shaft. In a letter to the university’s president, Teresa Sullivan, they asked her to remove Thomas Jefferson quotes from messages to students, according to the Washington Examiner. “For many of us, the inclusion of Jefferson quotations in these emails undermines the message of unity, equality, and civility that you are attempting to convey,” the group wrote. Sullivan said in a response that she would not backpedal from quoting Jefferson, according to another report from the Examiner. The Sage of Monticello—as the author of the Declaration of Independence has often been called in tribute to his home in Charlottesville, Virginia—had such high hopes for the school that he wrote of the students toward … Read entire article »
