Organizational Hubris at the FBI
By James Davidson, Former FBI Agent & President of ProtectTheFBI.org

Several journalists recently made the case that an FBI culture characterized by hubris precipitated the FBI's improperly predicated investigation into the Trump campaign. They also argued that this hubris extends well beyond the 7th floor of the J. Edgar Hoover building and permeates the entire organization. We prefer to wait for the Inspector General's soon-to-be-released report before concluding whether the investigation was properly predicated. Protect the FBI also believes journalists often exaggerate the nature and extent of the FBI's cultural hubris. [more...]


Hollywood's Human Rights Duplicity
By James Hirsen

After a law was passed in Georgia to save the lives of pre-born babies with detectable heartbeats, many in Hollywood grabbed their leftist playbooks and began clamoring for a boycott of the state. Netflix, Disney, and a smattering of Left Coast companies threatened to pull production away from Georgia if the implementation of the law began to take effect. Despite the high degree of virtue signaling that has taken place regarding the issue, Hollywood continues to conduct business with foreign governments that hold abysmal human rights records. [more...]


Facebook Value Goes Crypto
By Lowell Ponte

18 months ago, social network giant Facebook announced that it was banning all ads for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as "frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices." But this week, Facebook will issue formal notice of its own cryptocurrency called Libra, to be launched early next year. Facebook has more than a dozen partners in this new money, including Visa and MasterCard, two companies Libra could undercut with lower prices for transactions. Libra is a "stablecoin," not a speculative gamble whose value shoots up and down like Bitcoin. Its value will be "pegged" to a "basket of currencies," to conservative stocks, and perhaps even to a fraction of gold. Mark Zuckerberg is already distrusted for violating the privacy of customers, and for censoring conservatives for their views. How will we like Zuckerberg when he also becomes head of one of the world's largest central banks - which, with 2.4 billion Facebook customers, is what the Libra consortium will be? It could become a threat to the future of the U.S. Dollar. [more...]


Tyranny Masquerading as Tolerance
By David Horowitz

Through a perverse but also inevitable twist to Identity Politics, the most aggressively bigoted and hate-filled censors seeking to suppress and marginalize individuals whom they regard as “other” are the very movements organized as advocates for “victim” minorities. The haters include white supremacist fringe movements who think that through attacks on Jews and Blacks they are actually defending whites (who are indeed targeted by so-called social justice warriors. But the most prominent and far more numerous hate groups are the social justice warriors themselves - Black Lives Matter, the misnamed Human Rights Campaign and the equally misnamed Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, an organization that is well-practiced in the art of defamation against what it refers to as “oppressor” groups. [more...]


What is George Will Rooting For?
By Karen Kataline

Yesterday, Washington Post columnist George Will predicted the eventual presidential nominee of the Democratic Party would beat President Trump in 2020. George Will detests the President so much that in his recent op-ed, “To beat Trump, Dems must practice a politics of modesty,” he refers to him as “today’s incumbent.” One wonders if he referred to President Trump’s predecessor the same way. Will tells Democrats they can beat “today’s incumbent” by employing the “politics of “modesty.” Here’s a question for George: How is it modest to disguise one’s immense hubris as humility just so you can win? [more...]


Never-Trumpers Killed CNN

Brent Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center, outlines a very specific message in his new book, Unmasked: Big Media’s War Against Trump: The media’s anti-Trump mindset is putting them out of business. “Can they regain their credibility? I think the answer’s no,” Bozell explained. “You’ve got to have other voices.” Can CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the legacy media ever gain back the public’s trust? [more...]

Cop Watch Database Endangers Police
By Dawn Perlmutter

Welcome to The Plain View Project - an anti-police information operation

The Plain View Project (PVP), a cop watch group disguised as a reputable research organization, analyzed the Facebook accounts of thousands of police officers across eight U.S. cities, including Philadelphia, Dallas, St. Louis, Phoenix, York, PA, Twin Falls, ID, Dennison, TX and Lake County, FL. On June 1, 2019 the Plain View Project study was published online as a database. This resulted in immediate internal affairs investigations, officers placed on desk duty and mandatory sensitivity training. The media enthusiastically reported that thousands of officers endorsed violence against Muslims, women, and criminal defendants. The ACLU is outraged, CAIR is making demands and an assortment of social justice protesters started marching. Everyone is calling for police to be fired. At first glance, the results of the so-called systemic look at officers on social media seems indefensible. However, a closer look reveals an extreme left-wing biased, major flaws in the research and a calculated manipulation of data to skew the results. [more...]


Inflation Undershoots Again in May - Tariff Effect Nowhere to Be Seen
By Jeff Ferry

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) published the May consumer price index, and once again inflation has undershot Wall Street expectations. Headline inflation came in at 1.8% for May 2019 (compared to May 2018). The core rate of inflation (i.e., removing volatile food and energy prices) was slightly higher, at 2.0 percent, but still undershot what analysts were expecting. One team of bank economists reacted to yesterday morning’s undershoot with a published note saying: “Feeding the frenzy - Softer U.S. consumer price inflation data will only fuel the market clamor for interest rate cuts.” The note went on to speculate that Fed chairman Jerome Powell might signal a bias toward easing interest rates as soon as next week. [more...]

Leftist Comedy is Literally Hitler
By Daniel Greenfield

Leftists have never been as humorless, unfunny and touchy as they are now. And they've never poured as much time and money into late night comedy, Netflix comedy specials and assorted people angrily shouting things about Trump and their confused sexual identities into a microphone, as they are now. Comedy, as supported by billion-dollar media corporations based in blue states that would legalize killing babies and heroin before they would permit gun ownership, has returned to its roots in Greek political life. Except the ancient Greeks thought that people insulting each other's politics was funny and the modern Proggies think that the insults should be one-sided and delivered in an echo chamber.

Target Stock vs. Walmart Stock - Which is the Better Buy?
By Crista Huff

May was a poor month for U.S. stocks. While most retail stocks suffered greatly, Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) exhibited bullish price charts. I’m not adding either Target stock or Walmart stock to my Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor portfolio just yet, because their fundamentals are not strong enough. However, these are the go-to stocks for institutional investors who want to assess the discount store landscape in search of potential portfolio stocks.

The 'Central Park 5' Were Murderous Thugs

Despite the Left’s attempt to make them martyrs
By John Perazzo

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s new Netflix series, When They See Us, is being billed as an important exposé of the American criminal justice system's racist underbelly. As a review explains, it is the “riveting” story of how that system coerced and intimidated five innocent “teenage boys of color” into confessing to the highly publicized “rape and vicious assault of Trisha Meili, a white investment banker,” in New York's Central Park on April 19, 1989.

We are told that the boys - Kharey Wise, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson, and Raymond Santana - tragically had “their youth snatched from them” by the false convictions and the subsequent prison sentences that they served. In a similar vein, another review lauds DuVernay for her success in “humanizing” these same “innocent young black and brown” victims of institutionalized “abuse, mistreatment and manipulation.” A New York Times headline depicts DuVernay's series as “The True Story of How a City in Fear Brutalized the Central Park Five.”

It's a story we've all heard many times before. And it is a damnable, disgusting lie.

Ava DuVernay’s racist propaganda film targeting whites, characterizes them as “disgusting” expressions of anti-black racism. DuVernay's interpretation of Trump's words, along with her whitewashing of the Central Park Five’s horrific crimes, demonstrate just how morally sick the modern Left has become.

John Perazzo is the managing editor of DiscoverTheNetworks.org and the author of Betrayal: The Democratic Party's Destruction of America's Cities.

Why They Hate Trump
By Karen Kataline

Among the political classes, the opposition to Trump began well before his inauguration by “trumping up” hatred for him regardless of any facts.  They have actually been willing to frame and defame him with the ultimate goal of removing him from office by any means necessary, including fraud. Are we to believe that all of this is because their delicate sensibilities have been offended by Trump’s style, civility, or the lack thereof? They don’t hate Trump.  They hate what he stands for. It’s hard to get your brain around but if that’s true, it’s the biggest crisis of all. [more...]


Why Economic Forecasts of the Effects of Trade Action Are Consistently Wrong
By Jeff Ferry

For more than a quarter century, every major action the U.S. government has taken on trade policy has been accompanied by economic forecasts of their impact on the U.S. economy. And in every case, that forecast has been wrong. Sometimes the actual result has been in the opposite direction from that predicted in the forecast.  These forecasts, based on economic models, are influential. Indeed, U.S. trade law requires that an economic forecast be carried out by the International Trade Commission (ITC) for every free trade agreement the executive branch proposes to Congress. There are good reasons these forecasts are habitually wrong and they go deeper than a simple bias towards free trade on the part of the economists or civil servants. [more...]


Will 'Turncoat' Joe Biden Save His Soul
By Lowell Ponte

Last week Joe Biden declared his firm support for the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of taxpayer money to pay for abortions. The next day Biden flip-flopped, saying he would join other left-liberal presidential candidates in promising to ban the Hyde Amendment. Yes, he has shown himself to be a modern Democrat - a politician defined not by his principles, but by his willingness to instantly do whatever the leftist mob demands. Biden has a strong pro-abortion record in politics. He even voted to let your 14-year-old pregnant daughter get a secret abortion without notifying you or getting your approval. But Joe Biden might save his soul - if he uses this opportunity to tell voters not to support the Democratic Party until the leftist demons who have hijacked it are exorcised. [more...]


The Clintons Partner Up with Hollywood
By James Hirsen

Hillary may have finally found the hobby that she had been looking for: Shaking down Hollywood execs in order to finance female-centric projects. Because Hollywood decision makers abandoned business principles a long time ago, she is likely to be able to obtain financing for some agenda-laden products that few, if any, will want to see. As an added benefit from all of this, we are able to get a sneak preview of what Joe Biden will be able to do with himself after he loses. [more...]

Treasury Overlooks the True Culprit Behind U.S. Dollar Strength
By Michael Stumo

After a long delay, the Treasury Department just released its latest semi-annual report on global currency exchange policies. The congressionally mandated report provides an assessment of whether foreign countries are undervaluing their currencies to gain a trade advantage. The major takeaway from the report is that Treasury has expanded the list of countries it is monitoring for exchange rate abuses. However, the department repeated its longstanding practice - and once again found no currency “manipulation” by America’s trade competitors. In other words, Treasury believes that foreign central banks are not acting to push the U.S. dollar’s value up to noncompetitive levels. [more...]


Why Trump's Style is Not the Problem
By David Horowitz

Right from the start, President Trump has had to fight off a seditious political party and media, while attempting to secure our borders, stop the fleecing of American taxpayers through unfair trade policies, defend Israel in a way that no previous president Republican or Democrat has been willing to do. I do wish Trump would forgo some of his decisions to get down and dirty with his political opponents who are distorting almost everything he says and does, beginning with his border policies which are neither anti-immigrant nor racist nor anti-Muslim. But amazed as I am that he has been able to withstand these attacks and steer our country in a positive direction, I am loathe to criticize him harshly when he attempts to defend himself. I sympathize wholly with Americans' concerns, I just don’t see an easy way out while the Democrats are pursuing impeachment of the president for obstruction of justice in the case of a crime (collusion) that never took place. [more...]


Are Left-Loving Millennials the Generation that Will Extinguish Our Freedom?
By Lowell Ponte

Millennials do not want to become responsible parents because THEY want to remain pampered children who need never grow up. They favor socialism because it would let them live as infantile, selfish children with government replacing their parents as the suppliers of food, shelter, and clothing so the kids need never work. Millennials apparently like dependency on government. Meanwhile, the younger generation's I.Q. has measurably fallen here and in Europe by 3-6 points, and their sperm count has plunged by 60 percent. Millennials may love the Left because they "are incapable of mature love and have lost the human will to live." [more...]


Woke Disney is Risky Business
By James Hirsen

Entertainment behemoth Walt Disney Company, which as a business startup had a focus on child-oriented product, now has a CEO who has taken an anti-child stance on a significant societal issue. In a Reuters interview that took place prior to the dedication of Disneyland’s newest land, “Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge,” Disney head Bob Iger was asked whether or not the company would continue to use the state of Georgia as a location for the filming of its projects. The reason the question was posed to Iger is because Georgia recently passed a state law that bans abortion procedures after a fetal heartbeat can be detected (approximately six weeks of gestation). Iger was letting the world know which side Disney is on in the culture war that continues to surround abortion. [more...]


Terror Attacks on Saudi Oil Reveal Moralism Folly
By Joseph P. Duggan

Tanker ships and the strategic pipeline of Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, suffered terrorist attacks recently. Aramco has the monopoly on all Saudi Arabian oil production and is wholly owned by the Saudi government, the United States’ most powerful ally in the Middle East. The attacks at sea and in the heart of Saudi Arabia coincide with the upcoming public release of President Trump’s Arab-Israeli peace plan, for which Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates already are signaling support. Iran or its allies are suspected of responsibility for the attacks. As the crisis intensifies, the U.S. Senate’s Dynamic Duo of bellicosity, Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), are calling for harsh new economic sanctions. Are they to be imposed against Iran? No, it would seem that the U.S. already has maxed out on sanctions against Iran. [more...]

3 Investment Strategies for the Next Market Sell-Off
By Crista Huff

Last week an investor asked me, “If there is a stock market sell-off and money is withdrawn from the market by an exodus from ETFs/mutual funds, how does one protect him/herself as fundamentals will not matter?” My answer to that question can probably help many investors clarify their investment strategies and find productive ways to deal with stock market volatility. The vast majority of stock investors are going to experience big drops in portfolio values during bear markets or market corrections, and there isn’t too much that we can do about it. So, the key question becomes, “Are you brave enough to let your stocks recover in the coming months?” [more...]


Obama's Spygate
By Lowell Ponte

Obama is about to publish his memoirs but is apparently so worried about his wife’s success as an author that last week he said Michelle “had a ghost writer.” Ironically, Barack’s own first two books were apparently ghostwritten by Bill Ayres, a New Left Weatherman terrorist but skillful writer in whose apartment Barack launched his own first political campaign. In Dreams of my Father, Barack described seeking out “Marxist professors” in college. His administration welcomed fellow 'red diaper babies,' from David Axelrod to Valerie Jarrett. Obama appears to have been deeply involved in weaponizing government agencies to wiretap and spy on Donald Trump in a “Trumpgate” attempted coup d’etat. He met in the Oval Office with his FBI Director James Comey, accomplice in the scheme Vice President Joe Biden, and others the day before Comey was to set Trump up by telling him a lurid tale in what is now known as the Trump dossier. [more...]


Kanye West Stands Up for Trump Supporters
By James Hirsen

When it comes to Kanye West, Democrats have a lot to fear. Bucking the trend in the entertainment industry, Kanye has shown support for President Trump on a number of occasions, including one in which he made a visit to Trump Tower shortly after President Trump’s 2016 election victory. The popular rapper, who also happens to be the husband of Kim Kardashian, appeared last year on “Saturday Night Live” and gave a speech to the audience immediately after the broadcast. Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media breathed a collective sigh of relief when Kanye made a late autumn announcement via Twitter back in 2018 that he was “distancing” himself from politics. However, at the start of 2019, he was back on the Trump train again. [more...]


Eight Non-Jewish UCLA Student Council Members Pass Resolution Absolving SJP of Anti-Semitism
By David Horowitz

The UCLA Undergraduate Students Association passed a resolution last week asserting that the campus group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is not anti-Semitic and condemning the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s newest report, “An Epidemic of Jew Hatred on Campus: the Top Ten Neo-Nazi Incidents,” which was distributed in newspaper form on the UCLA campus on April 30. USAC passed the resolution with a vote of 8-1. All 8 members of the student council who voted for the resolution are not Jewish. [more...]


How Bill Gates Destroyed the SAT
By Daniel Greenfield

Bill Gates has wielded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as a tool for wrecking education with Common Core and has hijacked the College Board, which began as a conclave of elite college leaders, into pursuing his radical social and political agendas. The downfall of the College Board began when it picked David Coleman, a Gates alumnus who had played a significant role in writing Common Core standards, as its new president. Coleman, a Rhodes Scholar, the son of a Bennington College president and New School dean, had degrees from Yale, Cambridge and Oxford. By the age of 25, he was working at McKinsey as an educational consultant. The rest of the story was an escalator ride through the consulting industry that destroyed education. [more...]

Across-the-Board China Tariff Would Boost U.S. Economy, Create Thousands of Jobs
By Michael Stumo

We have released a groundbreaking study on the impact of a potential 25 percent across-the-board tariff on all imports from China. Our research found that such a move would deliver significant, sustained benefits for the U.S. economy, including the creation of 771 million additional jobs and an additional $125 billion to GDP over five years. “China’s rise has come at the expense of U.S. jobs and manufacturing,” said CPA Chairman Dan DiMicco. “This new research demonstrates just how much the United States stands to gain from reclaiming our manufacturing base. Blind adherence to free trade clearly hasn’t worked; and boosting domestic production should now be our top priority.” [more...]


Report on "The Top Ten Neo-Nazi Incidents" on American Campuses Exposes Scourge of Leftist Jew Hatred 
By David Horowitz

Horrifying instances of anti-Semitism on prestigious American campuses including UCLA, Columbia University, the University of Minnesota, Tufts University, and the University of Michigan are among those cited by the David Horowitz Freedom Center in a new report on "An Epidemic of Jew Hatred on Campus: the Top Ten Neo-Nazi Incidents." The report explains that Jew Hatred - a prejudice often attributed by the media to conservatives - is rapidly becoming part of mainstream Leftist dogma. This is nowhere more true than on our nation’s college campuses, where neo-Nazi incidents have only grown in their violence and magnitude. [more...]


What is Mitt Romney Doing in the Senate?
By Daniel Greenfield

On Sunday, Willard Mitt Romney visited CNN to praise Rep. Justin Amash’s call for President Trump’s impeachment as “courageous.” He also claimed that it’s “way too early” to support Trump. The Senator from Utah then claimed that, "the president has distanced himself from some of the best qualities of the human character.” It’s never “way too early” for Mitt Romney to rise to the heights of moral condescension based on stunning accomplishments of character such as stabbing conservatives in the back. Romney is a 71-year-old freshman senator. Before this year, the last time Romney held elected office was in 2007. Twelve years ago. Since then he lost two elections, one to McCain and one to Obama, burning through half-a-billion dollars, before heading to Utah and outspending his opponent 5-1 on a Senate race he couldn’t lose. In reality, Mitt has done little more than take cheap shots at Trump. [more...]


"Ramadan Rage" Leaves 364 Dead and 404 Injured in Two Weeks

“Islamic terrorists have carried out an estimated 76 attacks in nearly 15 countries since the beginning of Ramadan this month, killing at least 364 people and injuring 404 others in the first two weeks of the holiest month for Muslims.” The lives of these victims are worth no less than the lives taken in the errant Christchurch massacre in New Zealand but the silence over “Ramadan rage” murders is deafening.
