The 'Trump-Russia' Investigation Prosecuted by Criminals
By Karen Kataline

Robert Mueller and his crack team of Democrat-connected lawyers have spent two years charging a long list of people with crimes that have nothing to do Trump or Russia or collusion, though Trump has obviously been their target all along.  It has all been used strategically to create screaming headlines and to make the President appear to be guilty… of something. At precisely the same time, the Special Counsel has ignored fact after fact made public of massive corruption in the Clinton Campaign and the DNC for, you guessed it, collusion with Russia - and a whole lot more.  That would include money-laundering, pay to play schemes while Hillary was Secretary of State, like selling 20% of American Uranium to Russia (yes, Russia!) in exchange for massive donations into Clinton campaign coffers; maintaining a private e-mail server to cover all her illegal doings which in itself is a felony, and then destroying the evidence after it had been subpoenaed, another honking felony.

Republicans Can Win in 2020 if They Step Up Their Game
By James Hirsen

After loads of liberal media gloom and doom regarding the fate of the GOP, it may be a surprise for some to hear that, despite the midterm election results, Republicans are in a good position to take the White House again, retake the House of Representatives, and maintain the Senate... that is, if they are able to focus on three key elements: voter data, party unity, and strategically significant issues. According to the hyperventilating panelists who appear on the left-leaning media news shows, President Trump and the Republican Party are in trouble. The recent court filings made by Special Counsel Robert Mueller concerning Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen have the talking heads sneering with delight at the prospect of more GOP misfortune. The lopsided media, though, is not presenting an accurate picture of the political playing field. [more...]


Would Dems Wreck America to Win in 2020?
By Lowell Ponte

“[The] way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So, please, bring on the recession,” says leftist HBO comic Bill Maher. “Sorry if that hurts people ... [but] a recession is a survivable event; what Trump is doing to this country is not.” Actually, the country is better than it has been for decades. But Maher rightly understands that if Trump continues to succeed, the Democratic Party and its socialist boot on the necks of Americans will be finished. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for,” Hillary Clinton says, declaring that “civility can only return” when her Democratic Party again controls the government. Until voters restore leftist politicians to their entitled dominion as our superiors, the Democrats will turn politics into war, resistance, and unwavering hatred, because their unwanted collectivist party is fighting dirty for its survival. [more...]


Dems Inch Toward Government-Run Health Care
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

At the state level, Democrats are trying to resurrect one of Obamacare's least popular features, the individual mandate. Americans hated the mandate in part because it forced them to buy expensive plans on Obamacare's exchanges or pay a fine of the greater of $695 or 2.5 percent of income. From 2013 to 2017, average premiums doubled, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Last year, Congress effectively repealed the mandate by zeroing out the fine for non-compliance. But as soon as the ink was dry, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., created their own state-level mandates. [more...]


Soros and the Media's Censorship Plot
By Daniel Greenfield

George Soros and his ilk want to regulate Facebook because they fear the power of populism. They see the media as a politically reliable entity pushing the public leftward while restraining blowback. The media wants to regulate Facebook because it offers too much scope for uncensored political dissent, but also because regulating its key distributor will lock in a business model that can assure its future. Facebook became the dog and the media the tail. The media dog wants Facebook to be its tail. [more...]


Ghosts of President's Past
By John LeBoutillier

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we examine the three recent federal court filings. What have we learned about President Trump's role in two felonies committed during the 2016 campaign? What clues have the filings' redactions given us about where the Mueller probe is headed? And, is Fox gradually beginning to peel away from their loyalty to President Trump? [more...]

Caravan Supporters Insult Legal Immigrants
By Brigitte Gabriel

Another liberal college campus is making its voice heard in the ongoing and controversial immigration debate. Breitbart is reporting that the University of California Berkeley “student government voted to financially fund the migrant caravan in a resolution passed by the student senate” last week. The $1,500 in funds for the student organization Central Americans For Empowerment will help with migrants’ “legal fees and health services.” Besides disrespecting the rule of law and the protection of borders, these students and other migrant caravan supporters like them are disgracing and insulting every legal immigrant who became a citizen of the United States through a lawful process. A member of America’s legal immigrant family is New York Times best-selling author Brigitte Gabriel, who in her latest book, RISE: In Defense of Judeo-Christian Values and Freedom,” writes extensively about how immigration policies are fundamentally changing the nation.


Tariffs are Working
By Jeff Ferry

Since January, the Trump administration has implemented five major tariff policies, on the solar panel, washing machine, steel, and aluminum industries, as well as the so-called Section 301 tariffs affecting $250 billion worth of Chinese imports, chiefly in intermediate manufactured goods. And so far, the evidence is that the tariffs are working. Economic growth is up, inflation is under control, many of the tariffed industries are enjoying strong recoveries in output, profits, and employment. And as optimism spreads across manufacturing, other manufacturing sectors are also enjoying better growth than they’ve seen in years. There is such a constant onslaught of criticism of tariffs, and “warnings” about how they will damage the U.S. and world economy that I can’t blame anybody for believing tariffs are bad. But the truth is that if you look at the evidence, tariffs are contributing to the growth of our economy this year. [more...]


President Trump is Fighting the War on Waste
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

Just a few weeks ago, we ran a two-page ad in the Wall Street Journal and USA Today urging the President to wage a war on waste. We asked him to do three things: 1. Post all White House expenditures online; 2. Cut agency waste by 5%; and 3. Report progress to the public. President Trump is listening to our demands. Just 28 days after our open letter published, the president ordered his agency heads to cut the fat and put an end to the fraud, waste, and abuse. This is a massive victory in our war on waste.

Alaska and America's Fragile Foothold
By Lowell Ponte

The great earthquake on Friday struck just north of Anchorage at 8:30 a.m., with dawn more than an hour away. Its magnitude 7.2 tremor lasted only 30 seconds but triggered more than 190 aftershocks as large as magnitude 5.8 over the next 24 hours. The quake swarm damaged buildings, cut off electricity to thousands, and tore roads apart; but according to early reports it miraculously neither killed nor severely injured anyone. A large earthquake is an awe-inspiring experience; it shows you how the material things we trade years of our lives for, such as a home, can be shaken to pieces in an instant. It teaches you how to survive in a land where the very earth you stand upon is not reliably stable. [more...]


Michelle Obama is NOT Running for President
By Karen Kataline

The former First Lady made headlines recently when she declared once again that she’s not running for president. She explained it this way: “My path has never been politics,” she said. “I just happened to marry somebody whose passion was politics. Just because he likes it doesn’t mean that I like it!” I found that curious since she has also said, “any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.” Like many of today’s socialist elites, Mrs. Obama reserves certain rights for herself that she can’t imagine allowing for others.

Christmas Past, Present and Future
By James Hirsen

For centuries Christmastime in America was widely recognized as a special season of joy, filled with festive celebrations, heartfelt gift-giving, and, of course, transcendent music that conveyed the faith of so many of our nation’s people. Unfortunately, what has transpired over the last few decades is a rise of suppression of Christian expression, which has become most evident during the time leading up to this brightest of holidays.

Michelle Obama - 'I'm Independent, You're Not'
By Karen Kataline

Michelle Obama has been on a celebrated book tour.  Unlike Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are speaking to houses that are 83% empty, Mrs. Obama has been speaking to sellout crowds. Orchestra seats for Mrs. Obama’s “Becoming” tour are going for $3000.00 a pop. The former First Lady made headlines recently when she declared once again that she’s not running for president. She explained it this way: “My path has never been politics,” she said. “I just happened to marry somebody whose passion was politics.

Muslim Migrants Terrorize a Sleepy German College Town
By Daniel Greenfield

29. That’s how many crimes one single Syrian migrant had allegedly committed since entering Germany four years ago. He had already been wanted for drug trafficking and had been investigated for a rape last year. And then he struck again, this time in a case that has once again torn apart a sleepy college town. Freiburg is a German city of 226,000 people. Foreigners make up 36,800 or 16% of the population. Of the foreigners in Freiburg, whose name means fortified city of free people, 18,750 or 8.5% are men. Even though foreigners are only a small percentage of the population, they commit 42% of the crimes. [more...]


GM Suffers Massive Layoffs
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

General Motors announced Monday that it will close five factories, lay off nearly 15,000 or 15 percent of its salaried workers, and shut down five plants in North America. These cuts break down to around 8,000 white-collar workers, and 5,000 factory workers. GM is the leading enterprise in car manufacturing along with other productions. This news comes after the fear of tariffs and dealing with unknown market changes have seen the auto industry's raw-material costs for steel and aluminum skyrocket, costing the company over $1 billion this year alone. [more...]

James Hirsen: My Personal Tribute to Christmas Past, Present and Future


You know James Hirsen as an expert political and legal analyst, but did you know he is also a talented bluesman, singer/songwriter and the former keyboard player for The Temptations?  A true Renaissance man!  Now James has released his own Christmas EP to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas.  Remember the wonderful Christmas carols Americans have enjoyed every holiday season for time immemorial? James's new renditions are passionate interpretations that reflect his great and forever growing faith in Christ. [more…]


You can buy the record here… and a portion of the proceeds will go to Samaritan's Purse International Relief.  Also available on Amazon, Google Play and iTunes.

Unfortunately, the traditional songs Americans have always enjoyed during the holiday season have come under attack by the Left as well as their criticism and literal removal of Christianity and its symbols. Read James Hirsen's commentary here: Christmas Past, Present and Future.

James Hirsen, J.D., M.A. in Media Psychology, is a New York Times best-selling author, international attorney, cultural commentator, and social media scholar.

It Takes a Good Guy with a Gun to Stop a Bad Guy with a Gun
By Karen Kataline

When Democrats gain control of the house in January, they will be fighting harder than ever to convince us that law-abiding citizens shouldn’t be trusted to have guns to defend themselves. Not long ago, they balked bitterly at the accusation that their real goal was to repeal the Second Amendment. Now, many have finally started to admit that this is precisely what they had in mind all along. Good for them. Better for us. They are easier to beat when they tell the truth. Unfortunately, that’s never very often. Conservatives have an excellent argument in favor of the Second Amendment by proclaiming that “it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.” Unfortunately, it makes no sense to Leftists and it’s instructive to examine why.

Celebrate the International Day of Tolerance with Intolerance to the UN
By Daniel Greenfield

International Tolerance Day was celebrated at the World Tolerance Summit at the Armani Hotel in Dubai. A photo of the event shows three Arab Muslim men in burnooses sitting under the Summit's subtitle, "Prospering from Pluralism: Embracing Diversity through Innovation and Collaboration." The UAE is an Arab Muslim entity. Good luck obtaining citizenship if you aren’t an Arab Muslim. Leaving Islam is forbidden, but the government has a special site encouraging infidels to convert to Islam. Diversity is great… as long as it’s limited to Muslim men. Pluralism is fantastic. But you’re not allowed to leave Islam. And tolerance is applied equally to Muslim men and other Muslim men on Tolerance Day. [more...]


Steel Tariffs Creating Jobs, Boosting GDP
By Jeff Ferry

Despite pessimistic predictions from many economists, the administration's steel tariffs are creating U.S. jobs and stimulating growth. Steel tariffs, in combination with other economic policies, will drive growth of 2.1 million additional jobs in 2018 over the baseline forecast. An additional 1.2 million jobs are expected to be created annually in the years 2019 through 2021. The performance of the U.S. economy since the steel tariff was implemented in March has been outstanding, with over a million more jobs in the U.S. economy today than in March, and GDP growth roughly half a point higher than economists had predicted. [more...]


Lessons from 1,400 Years of Jihad
By Robert Spencer

The History of Jihad is the first book that chronicles the entirety of the phenomenon of jihad for 1,400 years - not just the jihad against Europe, although that’s very much a part of the book, but also the jihad against India and the jihad elsewhere, also tying in the fact that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is itself a jihad, and, of course, the people who struck us on 9/11 were motivated by the exact same ideology that has motivated the jihad conquests of the distant past and is still with us very much today. If you do not learn from your mistakes, you keep making the same mistakes again and again and again. That’s U.S. foreign policy today, because of, in large part, a lack of awareness and understanding of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat and of a complete lack of knowledge of the history of jihad. Here are three lessons from history that could have a very great impact on foreign policy today in the United States, were there to be sanity in the State Department, which, of course, I know is at a premium.

Federal Spending Jumps as Agencies 'Use it or Lose it'
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

At the end of every fiscal year, a spending spree of billions of federal tax dollars occurs in a matter of days. But not all of that money goes to essential items. We found examples of federal purchases for wine, snowboards, pianos, guitars and fancy gym equipment. We dug through thousands of federal contracts for September, the last month of the fiscal year. In just one month, the U.S. government spent more than $6.2 million dollars on gym equipment. One out of every nine dollars spent by the federal government occurs in just the last seven days of the fiscal year. When the bureaucrats cannot even spend all the money that Congress is sending them, there's a problem. [more...]


Starbucks to Lay Off 5% of Corporate Workforce
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

Starbucks has announced plans to lay off around 5% of its corporate workforce following organizational and leadership changes within the company. CEO Kevin Johnson revealed that approximately 350 employees would be affected. Starbucks, known for its addicting coffee and juggernaut reputation around the world, is one of many companies who are planning to revamp their strategies, redistribute their assets and clean house. Companies facing sales declines are looking for new ways to stay relevant.  [more...]


Critics Can't Reconcile Trump's Lawful Border Defenses
By James Hirsen

Since the Trump administration authorized the military to use force along the U.S.-Mexico border, many are raising legal challenges to the president's border policy by invoking a 19th century law, the Posse Comitatus Act, which generally prohibits the federal government from using the military for domestic law enforcement functions -unless specifically authorized by the Constitution or Congress. According to U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis, over 5,000 active duty troops are now engaged in supporting missions along the border in Texas, Arizona, and California. [more...]


Should You Take a Home DNA Test?
By Lowell Ponte

“Know thyself,” advised the ancient Greek oracle at Delphi, whose Delphic prophecies sometimes misled those seeking guidance and destroyed them. Today, self-knowledge comes in a box from companies such as Ancestry.com or 23andMe. Send them a bit of saliva from swabbing the inside of your cheek and they will discern from your DNA, your genetic blueprint, your ancestral past and – coming soon – your health future. I received such a test kit as an early holiday gift, but thus far I have not decided whether to bare my personal DNA to this modern oracle. Peter J. Pitts, president of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest, recently offered five reasons not to let curiosity lure us into taking such tests… [more...]


'Medicare for All' Lost BIG Time in the Midterms
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Medicare for All - the rallying cry for much of the far left - lost big time in the midterm elections earlier this month. Voters outside liberal enclaves rejected candidates who touted their support for socialized medicine. That was wise. Medicare for All would saddle Americans with trillions in new taxes and diminish the quality of health care available in this country. Before the election, Medicare for All looked like a political winner. According to one Reuters/Ipsos poll, 70% of the public - including most Republicans - supported the idea. [more...]

Trump’s China Tariffs Are Working and Their Impact Should Not Be Blunted by Potential Loopholes

By Michael Stumo

In response to Beijing’s longstanding commercial espionage practices, President Donald Trump embarked on a series of tariffs against China earlier this year. Free-trade economists and media pundits offered dire warnings when the tariffs were announced. But as recent data have made clear, the tariffs are working. U.S. manufacturing employment has grown by 296,000 jobs over the past year, including 32,000 factory jobs added in October alone.

With the tariffs making progress, it would be unfortunate to see their impact blunted by potential loopholes. But that may be exactly what’s happening, thanks to a recent decision by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to exempt many Chinese products from tariffs. [more...]
