Rachel Maddow is intentionally distorting what Steven Menashi’s law review article said about Israel and ethnonationalism because she shares the Left’s anti-Semitism and because she can’t countenance the idea of a well-qualified Jewish member of the Trump White House Counsel’s staff sitting on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Obama Administration took unprecedented steps to preemptively block the issuance of Section 404 permits—the Clean Water Act permits required to begin most mining and infrastructure projects—before they were even reviewed. Conservatives applaud the recent action by the Trump Administration’s EPA to undo the preemptive veto of the Pebble Mine in Southwest Alaska.

Joaquin Castro likely did Texas based Bill Miller Bar-B-Q a favor (in the business sense) by publishing the name of its owner as a Trump backer. Texas conservatives’ response has been overwhelming -- but what does it say about our culture and society when it’s okay to potentially ruin someone’s existence over a political view? Think about it.

Given the constant pressure from the elite to disarm everyone except themselves, deplorables should be very skeptical that The Hunt is social satire and not a snapshot of the dystopian gun-free future that awaits us in a country run by President Kamala Harris or one of the other Far Left candidates running in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primary.

Elected officials who scored 90% or better in a given calendar year and also had lifetime scores of 90% or better are recognized as Defenders of Economic Freedom by the Club for Growth. Only two elected officials received a perfect rating of 100% in 2019, Del. Nick Freitas of Virginia and Rep. James Grant of Florida.

With Joe Biden looking increasingly tired, careworn and unable to get his thoughts straight, Democrats have a heck of a problem. Like a football team with no one backing up an aging and failing quarterback, the party is desperately searching for another option -- and time is running out.

The story that accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s (MCC) Special Housing Unit stretches the bounds of credibility. Because what they are claiming is that Epstein, one of the highest profile, if not the highest profile, prisoner in the MCC died through sheer incompetence.

Google whistleblower Zachary Vorhies started collecting internal documents from the company because he saw something dark and nefarious going on with Google and he realized that they were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States.

Conservatives won’t realize cultural success until there’s a determined effort among those with a say to engage with liberals on their own turf and refuse to bow to political correctness wherever it’s found. Retreating before the battle is joined is the last thing we should do if we’re truly to Make America Great Again.

There are only two people who can assure that this two-tiered system of justice does not become a permanent feature of American society: President Trump and Attorney General William Barr. We urge both of those good men to act with firmness and alacrity to ferret out, punish and purge from the government all of those implicated in the soft coup against President Trump.

One of the truly weird features of the modern Left, especially its major political candidates and media figures, is the propensity to utter physical threats against President Trump, his supporters and others on the Right. The strangest recent example of this testosterone-fueled Leftism was an altercation between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and a person who approached him and referred to him as “Fredo” Cuomo.

Nearly as predictable as the tides, Joe Biden will keep making speeches and he’ll continue saying things that cause decent people to shake their heads. Democrats must decide whether they want a presidential nominee who seems to be slipping more and more as the days go on. What will they do?

    It has long since become commonplace for the Democrats and the media to misrepresent any and all policies proposed by the Trump administration, but the blizzard of balderdash that greeted the so-called “green card rule” has been over the top even by left-wing standards. From the moment acting Citizenship and Immigration Services director Ken Cuccinelli announced it on Monday, the public charge regulation — which merely implements two bipartisan statutes passed in the 1990s — has been mischaracterized as a reversal of the nation’s historical immigration philosophy, a racist conspiracy, and a plot to favor rich immigrants over their poor counterparts.

    In an attempt to reach Generation Z — those in their teens and 20s — a new organization is starting this month to combat socialism’s appeal. It’s called Young Americans Against Socialism (yaas.org), according to its site, a nonpartisan nonprofit “dedicated to exposing socialism’s failures to young Americans by creating viral educational videos for social media.” Its founder, Morgan Zegers, worries that “more than half of young people believe socialism should be implemented in America.” The reason, she says, is because many of them know little about it. Her campaign will be largely on social media where she notes young people spend hours every day.

    A common language is important. Currently, America seems to be coming apart: the Left is doing its best to drive a wedge between regular Americans and the immigrant (and illegal immigrant) communities. The Left promotes open borders (if they’re open, are they really borders?), amnesty for illegals, and even voting by illegals. That’s a recipe for unrest—unrest that will redefine the country. Masses of non-English speaking people (many of them shadow dwellers) are unlikely to know, understand, appreciate, and internalize our customs—the Anglophone customs and rules for civilization that have built the best and freest society the earth has ever known—rules that didn’t just fall from the sky.

  • Christopher C. Hull, The Epoch Times

    Trump needs someone like Hoekstra or Fleitz, who could remind the nation of a century of Russian interference, including Russia’s offer in 1968 to finance the campaign of Democrat Hubert Humphrey against Richard Nixon; Teddy Kennedy’s plea to Moscow to intervene in the 1984 elections against Ronald Reagan; and especially Hillary Clinton in 2016 paying a former foreign spy to dig up agitprop directly from Russian intelligence and then weaponize it inside the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community. This is the president’s chance to get it right on the intelligence community in this first term. Either Fleitz or Hoekstra would do just that.

    Putin being a canny strongman, the point was to sow discord and make life difficult for what he fully expected would be the new Clinton administration. There are good reasons to doubt the sincerity of assurances by Kremlin-tied operatives that Putin wanted Trump to win. Russia’s modus operandi in the West is to agitate minority factions it believes are going to lose — whether it would prefer to see them to win or not. That is how Moscow promotes strife and makes it more difficult for the incumbent government to pursue its interests. But even if we accept at face value Russian assertions that Putin wanted Trump to win, there is no reason to think Putin believed Trump would win.

    If the world wants more dollars, the Fed must supply them. When commodities rise back to the level they were at a year ago, the Fed can stop cutting rates. We are more than a little troubled by some Fed members' declarations that real growth of 2 percent in America is not possible without higher rates of inflation. This is "secular stagnation" nonsense. We find it amazing that our businessman-president has more monetary street smarts than the combined wisdom of the several hundred economists at the Fed, many of whom boast Ivy League Ph.D.s. Yes, the Fed should remain politically independent, but when the president is right, the Fed should listen to him.

    Bad as it is, the Epstein affair is far from the worst malfeasance of the FBI/DOJ in recent years. That honor belongs to the Russia probe. Epstein, horrible as it is, is largely about the private lives of a certain number of despicable individuals. The Russia madness affected all of us, dominating the public attention since Trump was elected and weakening America before the world for absolutely no reason but to reverse the results of an otherwise legal election. It was a treasonous farce with FBI and the DOJ up to their necks in all of it, as well as numerous other government agencies and officials, but let's restrict ourselves to these two culprits.

  • Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

    Mr. Trump has been the one steady, reasonable voice in the midst of this "The Hunt" madness. In his statement after the El Paso and Dayton shootings, he condemned racism and bigotry, but also dared to address the multitude of issues we face, “We must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented acts. … We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. … It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. …” High-profile liberals say Trump is the problem: Perhaps they need to look in the mirror.

    The Times brigade was especially appalled by conservative media stars' using the term "invasion" to describe the influx at the southern border. Limbaugh explained that "invasion" describes the left's strategy to import new voters who don't share any particular affection for America's founding principles. "Invasion" is the correct word. It didn't matter to The Times. This is the kind of "news" story that the left has been uncorking for decades. The liberal media are becoming increasingly more comfortable with impugning every reporter and commentator in conservative media as a poisonous instigator of violence. But don't you dare call Chris Cuomo "Fredo."

  • R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

    Donald Trump’s occasional over-the-top counterattacks are always provoked by an over-the-top attack. The Democrats always attack first. Moreover, it is the Democrats who have coarsened debate in this country. They have been campaigning on slurs and scurrilous language. In the present furor over white supremacists, Donald Trump did not begin hurling insults. It was the Hon. Veronica Escobar, a Democrat, who, hours after the attack in El Paso, stood on stage with Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, and said the shootings were “fueled by hate, and it’s fueled by racism and bigotry and division.” You know whom she was alluding to.

  • Emile A. Doak, The American Conservative

    Conservatism is not an ideology. It’s a disposition. A conservative disposition is “the most natural political tendency, rooted in man’s taste for the familiar, for family, for faith in God.” It’s no wonder that Russell Kirk, a principal architect of American conservative politics, spoke so often of the permanent things. Those permanent things—faith, family, culture, country; the “elements in the human condition that give us our nature”—are the principles that must guide a conservative politics. Policy should seek to promote them, not vice versa. To the extent that Donald Trump can reorient our policy to serve those ends, he is the truly principled conservative.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    Here is the real collusion scheme: In 2016, the incumbent Democratic administration of President Barack Obama put the awesome powers of the United States government’s law-enforcement and intelligence apparatus in the service of the Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential campaign, the Democratic party, and the progressive Beltway establishment. This scheme had two parts: Plan A, the objective; and Plan B, a fail-safe strategy in case Plan A imploded — which all the smartest people were supremely confident would never, ever happen . . . which is why you could bet the ranch that it would. There was just one problem — that problem was Mrs. Clinton.

    If you’re into smearing at the Rhodes Scholar level like Mayor Pete, you just leave out the good parts of what Trump said and show only the parts of the quote that make your point. Buttigieg knows, or can fairly be charged with knowing, what Trump actually said about Charlottesville—but of course, Rhodes Scholar Buttigieg has no interest in truth. The smear’s the thing. Democrats having nothing else to run on except identity politics—the politics of hate and division, precisely the politics they so assiduously ascribe to Donald Trump. The press can and will continue to smear, and at the Rhodes Scholar level. Will democracy see us through?

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    There has never been a moment in American history in which so many of the top contenders (Sanders, Biden, Trump and Warren) for the presidency have been so old. There has never even been a time when two candidates over 70 ran against each other in a general election. The age issue in 2020 is about more than just gaffes. It is a substantial question for the nation's voters. Any of the top contenders might well experience age-related problems in office, and voters need to consider that before electing them. The race is in its early stages. It will inevitably become more passionate next year. When that time comes, age will be an issue.

    For three years, the U.S. establishment has not ceased to howl about Russia’s theft of emails of the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign. Yet the greatest cybercrime of the century was Beijing’s theft in 2014 of the personnel files of 22 million applicants and employees of the U.S. government, many of them holding top-secret clearances. Undeniably, Russia is a rival. But Putin’s economy is the size of Italy’s while China’s economy challenges our own. And China’s population is 10 times that of Russia, and four times that of the USA. Manifestly, China is the greater menace. This issue is likely to decide the destiny of our relations and the future of Asia, if not the world.
