On the Brink of Peace
By James Hirsen

Many of the previous foreign policy makers of our country have turned a blind eye to the evil that has emanated from Iran over the years. A glance back helps to explain where we are now, how we got here, and what we need to do moving forward. President Trump has been remarkably consistent. He has shown a great deal of restraint in his use of limited targeted action, while still displaying strength and resolve. It is clear from Iran’s failed missile attack against U.S. forces in Iraq that the regime has a healthy fear of the Trump administration. And so it should. In the aftermath of the Soleimani saga, a healthy fear is precisely what is needed to keep our country and the world solidly on the brink of peace. [more...]

Today's Democrats are Equal Opportunity Betrayers
By Lowell Ponte

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now feels entitled to control the Senate's impeachment processes, and to be Commandeer-in-Chief, telling President Trump how he must fight terrorism. Pelosi and her fellow leftist lawmakers now insist that President Trump was wrong not to get their permission before assassinating Iran's American-killing terrorist mastermind. Trump tried previously to secure such permission, only to have Democrats who are increasingly anti-Semitic leak his plans to the media - thereby letting this Islamist terrorist escape. To these new leftist Democrats, past friends are now enemies, and past enemies of the U.S. are their friends. These hijackers of the once-great Democratic Party have become "equal opportunity betrayers." [more...]

Buy American Made and Get Fit
By Don Buckner, Founder & CEO of MadeinAmerica.com

Buy American Made and get fit in 2020. That’s the goal for all of us. Every year, many of us promise ourselves to get fit and take better care of our bodies. Now while the majority of getting fit is contributed to eating healthy foods and being conscientious about what we’re putting in our systems, exercising is the best way to get optimal results and have a long, healthy life. We found a company that provides equipment to everyone from the military to apartment complexes with 100% American Made hardware. [more...]

U.S. Trade Deficit Shrinks to Smallest in Three Years
By Jeff Ferry, Chief Economist

The U.S. scored the smallest trade deficit since October 2016 as tariffs slowed the flow of imports into the country. With imports down while U.S. consumption continues to rise, American workers grabbed a larger share of domestic demand. The U.S. trade deficit in goods and services for November 2019 was $43.1 billion, down 8.2 percent on the previous month and down 19.6 percent on the year-earlier figure. The November decline is due to a $3.9 billion decrease in the goods deficit to $63.9 billion and a slight decrease in the services surplus of $0.1 billion to $20.8 billion. [more...]

People are Dying in Racial Violence So That Democrats Can Win Elections
By Daniel Greenfield

After a black nationalist attack on a Jewish supermarket in Jersey City, a member of the Jersey City Board of Education defended the murder of two Jewish people and a Latino employee. "Drugs and guns are planted in the Black community,” Joan Terrell Paige ranted on Facebook. The two Black Hebrew Israelite killers, the former community organizer wrote, “went directly to the kosher supermarket. I believe they knew they would come out in body bags. What is the message they were sending? Are we brave enough to explore the answer to their message? Are we brave enough to stop the assault on the Black communities of America?" While some Democrats called on Joan Terrell Paige to resign, others defended her hatred of Jews. [more...]

Trump's 'Immodesty' Unnerves those with Fake Humility
By Karen Kataline

From the moment he entered politics, Donald Trump has never deviated from being exactly who he is. After almost four years, some have gotten more used to his "this-is-who-I-am-warts-and-all" style. Some, like myself, have found it downright refreshing compared to the steady diet of air-brushed politicians who have spent thousands on media training so they could appear genuine. What’s more, by any fair, objective standard, Trump has been wildly successful first at winning the Presidency against all odds, and then doing exactly what he set out to do in office. One could argue that his opponents have also been successful - at not doing exactly what they have not wanted to do: secure America’s borders, decrease our dependence on foreign oil, lower the unemployment rate, protect American citizens and American sovereignty, etc. The difference is that now we know that they never wanted to do those things in the first place.

Tariffs are Working, to the Consternation of the Economics Profession
By Jeff Ferry, Chief Economist

The New Year dawns on an America where many manufacturing sectors are in a state of aggressive growth. The evidence from the American heartland is clear. The Trump administration tariffs are working. These companies are examples of a broader trend. As we’ve reported before, U.S. steel companies are investing some $13 billion in new steelmaking or mills across the US. Around a dozen solar panel and solar cell manufacturers are following First Solar’s example and launching U.S.-based production. Frustrated by the flow of good economic news, the economics profession looks for other means to wage their religious war against tariffs. [more...]

Is There a Truth-Telling Trend on the Horizon?
By Karen Kataline

Ricky Gervais is currently the toast of flyover country for his scathing rebuke of Hollywood hypocrisy at The Golden Globe Awards. Many of us had stopped watching those self-congratulatory lecture-fests a long time ago, but the video of his opening monologue is everywhere. In a country that has stood as a beacon to the rights and traditions of free expression, it has been heartbreaking to see how much courage is required by an individual these days, simply to tell the truth as he or she sees it. Of course, that’s only if it doesn’t comport with Leftist orthodoxy.  America has become the land of the freely offended and the home of the brave new world where the same "creatives" who formerly prided themselves on thinking "outside the box" are now the first ones to try put you in that box. The Left has cheered our enemies and trashed our country one too many times and it looks like everyday Americans are ready for the fight. Is this the beginning of a trend? Let’s congratulate Gervais and start telling our own truth louder and more often than ever. [more...]

The Trump Doctrine in Real Time
By James Hirsen

The mainstream news and entertainment media are once again in a frenzy trying to figure out what just happened on the world stage and how they can make the latest Trump victory look like a loss. The president does not expect to receive accolades for his successes from those who have hated him from the start. No credit given for the safe return of hostages, no singing his praises for facilitating the meet-up between North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in, no congrats for making changes in trade policy that resulted in better deals for average working folks, and on and on. [more...]

The Outlaw Left and the Roaring 2020s
By Lowell Ponte

Historians called the 1920s the "Roaring Twenties" because this decade's Prohibition was intended to end the evils of alcoholism. Instead, it led to big-city mobsters supplying illicit alcohol, and to a widespread breakdown of obedience and respect for law. As the 2020s dawn, the left intends to make this new decade one that could end respect for the law - and perhaps end law and order as we know it. [more...]

How a Small Group of American Citizens Exposed Terror and Antisemitism in Boston

Ilya I. Feoktistov's new book, TERROR in the Cradle of Liberty: How Boston Became a Center for Islamic Extremism tells a harrowing story of uncovering Muslim terror organizations in Boston. What's even scarier is how the media and community organizations wanted to look the other way.  [more...]

How the Left Uses Its Old Lies to Justify Its New Ones

By Robert Spencer

Late in November I wrote at FrontPage about how Raymond Buckley, Chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, called me a "white supremacist" in the run-up to my speaking event in his cold little state, and repeatedly refused to retract when asked to do so. Now Buckley’s lawyer, William E. Christie, has finally responded to a letter from my attorney. In doing so, Christie reveals a common but little-known tactic of the Left: build new lies upon old ones, to create a tower of mendacity as costly to counter as it is dishonest.

Of course, what happened to me is minor, but it is a microcosm of what is happening on a much larger scale. The impeachment proceedings in search of a crime against President Trump, however, show that this practice of building lies upon lies is a favored Leftist tactic. Raymond Buckley’s colleagues in the national Democratic Party are clearly willing to destroy our very system of government in their quest for partisan dominance and tell any lie in order to do so. My nasty experience with the Democrats in New Hampshire shows that this impulse didn’t spring out of nowhere. [more...]

Horowitz: Dems Fuel Hate, Not Trump

By David Horowitz

The anti-God, anti-religious left calling out President Trump for the spate of anti-Semitic attacks should be pointing the finger at themselves and the liberal colleges that fund Jewish hatred. Donald Trump is the greatest friend Jews have ever had in the White House. He did what three presidents, [Bill] Clinton, [George W.] Bush, [Barack] Obama, promised to do but didn't have the balls to do, which was to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, which is the capital. [more...]

David Horowitz, who is Jewish, is author of "Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America," which calls out liberal agendas that diminish religion and threaten the fabric of American society.

Democrats Bluffin'
By Karen Kataline

Pelosi continues to "threaten" to hold back the filing of two junk Articles of Impeachment the House rushed to pass before Christmas on the phony premise that Donald Trump is a threat to life as we know it. Actually, he continues to be a threat to life as they know it. Pelosi pretends that the Republican-controlled Senate actually wants what she and the Democrats have been selling. Given her previous remarks not so long ago, we can do more than speculate that she didn’t want impeachment either. [more...]

Soros's War Against the Jews
By Daniel Greenfield

As one of the wealthiest men around, George Soros was a man hiding from god by playing god. His shameful secret lay in the God and His people whom he had sinned against. The family’s Jewish origins were Soros’ secret shame. Schwartz, a Jewish family, were dead. They had been replaced by the Soros clan. George, who had once had a Bar Mitzvah, had been reborn a Nazi collaborator. And then, after the excitement of the war, he washed up as just another refugee in the UK. It wasn’t the Holocaust that had traumatized Soros, but the aftermath of being a nobody. [more...]

Disney Rules Over a Declining Box Office
By James Hirsen

Despite some blockbuster hits, Hollywood’s box office continues on its downward trend as 2019 comes to a close. Domestic revenues are expected to fall nearly 4 percent by year’s end; this according to The Hollywood Reporter. The box-office total of this past fall not only constitutes the sharpest decline in five years, it is also the fifth downturn this decade. Executives in Hollywood are assuming that the decline is mostly due to new home entertainment technology and the rise of streaming services, including Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+. [more...]

Separating Stock Market Facts from "Malarkey"
By Crista Huff

It is a ridiculous idea to stare at the bond market and guess whether a recession is coming when there are a few basic, readily available economic statistics that clearly tell investors how the economy is doing. I’m extremely familiar with the malarkey that people hear and believe about the stock market, and I’m sick of it all. So, today’s rant is about truth vs. malarkey, and how to tell the difference between stock market facts and stock market fiction. Here are some random, popular media topics that are consistently wrong... [more...]

Failure to Debate Spending in Congress

Progressivism's 'Godless' Religion
By Lowell Ponte

Even the Pope now agrees that Christianity is fading in Europe and much of the West. But as the Wall Street Journal notes, Pope Francis has traded traditional Christianity for what nowadays is called the "social gospel" of politics - economic equality, immigrant rights and global warming - as if government held the key to human spiritual needs. This is now the "religion" of the Progressive Left; and, make no mistake, Marxism and fascism and other philosophies metastasized from Progressivism are not mere ideologies but pseudo-religions, cults bent on destroying and replacing rival religions such as Judaism and Christianity.

'Christianity Today' Becomes a Tool of the Left
By James Hirsen

Although a lot of people link “Christianity Today” with evangelical Christian ideology, the magazine’s editor, Mark Galli, recently nixed that idea with a click of his keyboard. Galli penned a column that appeared to be written with the goal in mind of putting grins on the faces of leftists and garnering gobs of attention from the Trump-hating faction of the media. Whether the above stated goal was mapped out or not, the end result was the same. The magazine’s image took a hit, the president was unfairly maligned, and the liberal media ate it all up.

My Best Stock Picks from 2019
By Crista Huff

As we approach a new year, it’s time to reflect on what we accomplished in 2019, what’s left to do, and our hopes and dreams and goals for 2020. Those thoughts will differ, whether you’re focused on your family, your job or your golf handicap. For me, those thoughts focus heavily on stock picking, because December is the busiest month of the year for me. There’s a lot of forecasting involved. What will the major stock and economic trends be in 2020 and how can I position my stock portfolio to best capitalize on those opportunities? [more...]

Pelosi's Impeachment Games
By Lowell Ponte

You might have thought that the impeachment games that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat comrades have been playing during the holidays were designed to declare President  Trump "impeached," but, by refusing to transmit the House indictment to the Senate, they could deny President Trump any chance to be found "not guilty" by the Senate. Days ago, one of the main "impeachers," Adam Schiff, also "declared war" (according to the London Daily Mail) on Vice President Pence regarding a phone call Pence had with Ukrainian President Zelensky. This makes the impeachment game much, much bigger. How much? On September 2, 2018, my column here was titled "Are You Ready for 'President' Nancy Pelosi?" [more...]

Too Many Republicans Playing Defense
By Karen Kataline

Republican activists are debating among themselves about what the Senate’s next move should be if the Democrat majority in the House sends them two articles of impeachment. Should they take the ball and run with it by holding a full Senate or decline to hold a hearing at all and expect to score points by throwing the ball away? This could be one of the greatest opportunities for political theater and civics education in our lifetimes, but I fear that too many Republicans will remain comfortable playing defense, even when they finally get the ball. [more...]

Court Ruling Leaves Problem Plagued ObamaCare's Future Unknown
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

ObamaCare's much-hated requirement that every American carry health insurance or pay a penalty was ruled unconstitutional in a 2-1 decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. That’s the right decision on a badly flawed law, but it won't change anything for months or more likely years as the case continues to slowly wind its way through the courts. The big question facing the courts – which will be decided eventually by the U.S. Supreme Court – is whether the rest of ObamaCare can survive without what’s known as the individual mandate that everyone get health insurance.

How to Steal an Airplane
By Jeff Ferry, Chief Economist

In April 2018, a Chinese intelligence agent named Xu Yanjun got off a plane in Brussels, Belgium for a meeting with one of his assets, a U.S.-based General Electric engineer. The plan was to discuss what confidential aerospace design information the engineer could steal from GE to turn over to Xu. The meeting was a sting operation. Instead of a friendly drink, Xu was greeted by a team of Belgian police and FBI agents from the U.S. They clapped him in handcuffs and escorted him to a Belgian jail, He was kept there, incommunicado so he could not converse with his superiors in Nanjing, for six months. In October 2018 he was extradited by Belgium to stand trial in the U.S. on four counts of industrial espionage including theft of trade secrets, paying a GE engineer to pass trade secrets to Chinese officials, and attempting to steal trade secrets by fraud, artifice, and deception. This investigation exposed an unusually wide-ranging industrial spying conspiracy by China, targeting at least 13 different U.S. and international companies. In this case, China broke down an important industrial project, the C919 passenger jet plane, into all its major components and subsystems, and systematically targeted the western companies producing each one. [more...]

U.S. Leftists Ignore UK Elections
By James Hirsen

The recent landslide election triumph of Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson may prove to be an accurate predictor of what is likely to happen in U.S. elections come 2020. The same hatred that has held Democrats in its bitter grip since President Trump first took to the political stage is the same rage that is likely to blind them to the lesson that is there in the UK election results. Much like their denial after President Trump’s watershed victory, the left in America cannot accept the results of the UK election either. Leftists are already following the same pattern of rationalization, falsification and resistance that was exhibited in 2016 and thereafter. [more...] NOTE: Listen to James Hirsen's beautiful rendition of the great classic 'O Holy Night.'

Most of What Congress Does Every Day is an 'Abuse of Power'
By Lowell Ponte

Democrats are trying to impeach President Trump without finding any crime of the type Alexander Hamilton said should be needed. Without such a high and well-defined crime, impeachment is merely a political ouster, a coup d'etat that one party can use to destroy a president of a different party. For Democrats to try charging Mr. Trump with "abuse of power" and "obstruction of congress," as they are now doing, is absurd. The Constitution's "Enumerated Powers" clause (Article I, Section 8) specifies the only things the federal government is permitted to do. But today probably 80 percent of what the government does is outside these limited powers - and hence is an "abuse of power." [more...]

Obama Signals a Possible Run for Michelle
By Karen Kataline

Under the headline, "Time for Women to Run the World," the New York Daily News reported on a speech delivered by Barack Obama at a "private event in Singapore." Since the Kamala Harris campaign recently crashed and burned, the Left has been without their preferred candidate who checks the correct boxes for which they’ve been preparing for years: black and female. If you work backwards to that conclusion, you can see how they’ve been priming that pump. They have been building up their "women are oppressed... Me Too" movement and "Trump is a Mysogynist," etc. for years now. Thus, Obama may be signaling a presidential run for Michelle. That may have been the plan all along. [more...]

The Term "Palestinian" Has Been Invented

The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process demonstrates conclusively that the term "Palestinian" has been invented. This meticulously documented and comprehensive book is a treasure for anyone wishing to learn the truth of the Palestinian and Israeli conflict. Robert Spencer methodically demonstrates time after time that the Jews conclusively, not only have the right to live in their ancestral homeland, but the term “Palestinian” has been invented. It may sound disturbing to some who have not taken the time to study historical facts. However, Spencer has carefully tied various historical origins with current events that provide facts and understanding about what is happening in our present time. [more...]
