Lighthizer Confronts “The Swamp”

We have never seen this before. The U.S. Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer, is being brutally direct with free trade zombies in Congress and the multinational import lobby - “the swamp” - in charting a new pro-American direction on trade. Voters sought a change in trade policy when electing President Trump, but Congress has not changed. Neither have the special interests. Lighthizer faced a conundrum: he had to choose. The unspoken rule in the Washington swamp is that anybody talking about trade must say phrases like “grow export opportunities,” “increase two-way trade,” and “lower tariff barriers.” This shows that you are part of the club. Everybody nods and agrees. It is the conventional wisdom - these things must simply be true and good because everybody says them. The swamp aggressively enforces its dogma; heretics who refuse to follow their data-free theology are dismissed, attacked, ignored, or heckled. [more...]

Hooray for Hollywood - Celebrating Sexual Deviants for Decades

I was thinking on how over the last few weeks, the Hollywood’s true colors are showing. Then I quickly slapped myself back into reality. Hollywood’s colors have been showing for years, but the progressive, self-righteous Hollywoodites would have you believe it’s just a few disgruntled wannabees who are whining. NOT! As the weeks have gone on, it’s dawned on many of us that the Socialist Progressive Democrats run Hollywood. The Hollywood elites are always having $50 thousand per plate dinners while lecturing us about how much they care for the poor and downtrodden. [more...]

The Secret Methods of Progressive Politics

Most people do not know that Barack Obama had a kind of "Office of Thought Control" and team of mind manipulation experts in his White House.  And most know nothing of the sinister techniques Mr. Obama and his Progressive comrades used, and continue to use, to sway us. This is how Progressive politics now works, and it has shocking similarities to Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel of a "benign" but brain-drugged totalitarian future, Brave New World. [more...]

The Fake News Genocide Falls Apart

The Mayor of San Juan recently took a break from her tour of every cable news network on the planet to text an accusation of genocide aimed at President Trump. "WE WILL NOT BE LEFT TO DIE,” Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz texted. “I ask the United Nations, UNICEF and the world to stand with the people of Puerto Rico and stop the genocide.” The death toll in Puerto Rico currently stands at 48. Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20. As we approach October 20, the death toll from the hurricane is a lot less than the death toll from the deadliest month in Chicago. [more...]

From Teddy to Trump

Who is this “President TR? Who are we talking about here? Is it President Trump? Or President T. R. – Teddy Roosevelt? Because the two biographies loosely track each other – except for the underlying facts of character and personality – let’s examine the stark differences between these two New York POTUSes: [more...]

More Questions than Answers in the Las Vegas Shooting

So far, the FBI and Clark County Sheriff’s office have offered three or more timelines, none of which makes sense. There are many questions being asked and little information that has been provided in response to them. The security guard who was shot during the attack now supposedly has a gag order and missed several television interviews. Another anomaly: around 2015, the story goes, Stephen Paddock won $5 million gambling. For anyone who’s ever been to a casino, unless you’re betting tens of thousands per hand, or hit a mega jackpot, this is virtually impossible. Paddock was a middling gambler, betting $100 per video poker hand. He was quick and could do 200 hands per hour. While he was good at math, in the long haul all he could succeed in doing was losing money (about $200 per hour). It’s quite clear this income had to have come from a source other than video poker payouts. But where? [more...]

Mandalay Bay a “Gun-Free” Zone?

MGM CEO Jim Murren was appointed by Barack Obama to the Homeland Security Council. From that perch, Murren had insider access to the detailed threats aimed at Vegas. What did he do to prepare and adequately safeguard his guests? Several MGM security guards and ex-security guards have called my radio show in recent days. They described MGM’s security as “woefully undertrained and understaffed.” One ex-MGM security guard called to say Murren’s first act in taking over Luxor and Mandalay Bay was to disarm most of the guards and declare MGM hotels “gun-free” zones. Maybe that’s why the shooter chose Mandalay Bay. [more...]

Harvey Weinstein’s Growing Legal Quagmire

The disgraced movie mogul is facing a mounting pile of legal troubles swarming at him from every conceivable direction. More than 20 women have voiced allegations against Weinstein - claims of which include harassment, groping, forced sexual relations, and even rape. The alleged incidents took place over many decades in numerous locales. Most of the alleged victims would not be in a position to sue Weinstein in a civil court, due to the relatively short statutes of limitations governing the former mogul’s alleged torts. However, Weinstein’s legal problems in the civil arena are just the beginning of an expanding legal vortex. He now finds his alleged actions are the subject of investigations by the FBI as well as the New York and London police, while Los Angeles law enforcement is looking into launching a probe of its own. [more...]

The New Trump-McConnell Friendship

A new Trump-McConnell friendship was highlighted in the Rose Garden on Monday. It was a surprise few expected. Clearly, Trump made a big impact on McConnell and energized him. Trump’s tweets and jawboning got to McConnell. The swamp is literally getting a case of vertigo from the swift pace of Trump’s recent actions to overturn the dismal legacy of Obama. The actions on subsidies for health insurance companies and the right for small businesses to create cost-cutting associations to bring down healthcare premiums were part of it.  Trump’s action on the disastrous Iran nuclear deal to not certify Iranian compliance and to push the ball back into Congress for a sanction decision within 60 days added further to the momentum and pressure on McConnell. [more...]

Kobe Steel Scandal

Japan’s Kobe Steel has admitted to falsifying quality data for some of its products for up to a decade. It is said that the corruption has affected up to 500 firms worldwide. Kobe, which is Japan’s third largest steel producer, is now facing considerable financial trouble as the number of potentially affected clients increases. Firms that have had direct and indirect dealings with Kobe Steel are now looking at the products they manufacture to see if they will have to pull back anything they produce. This includes major car manufactures like Toyota, GM, Mozda, and Honda as well as Boeing, the world’s largest manufacturer of passenger jets. [more...]

FBI Says Black Identity Extremists Murder Cops

Black identity extremists are killing law enforcement officers and, according to a new report by the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, there is a high likelihood they will continue to do so. And no one in the black community, liberal establishment, or media is condemning the violence against police. Where’s the outrage? We all condemn illegal use of force against blacks and we should all condemn any violence against police officers regardless of the race of the perpetrator. A new FBI report is based on an analysis of incidents by black extremists against police from 2014-2016 and include: [more...]

American Seapower Still in Decline

Has the U.S. Navy reached its breaking point? In Seablindness: How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower and What to Do About It, Fmr. Deputy Undersecretary of the U.S. Navy Seth Cropsey exposes how years of underfunding has left our nation’s most strategic arm of defense - American naval power - smaller today than any point since before World War I.

The demands for American seapower have increased since the Cold War’s end and yet the U.S. has continued to cut its seapower.  Shrinking defense budgets have left the Navy and Marines scrambling to meet the nation’s combatant commanders’ requirements for naval and amphibious forces.  Faced with a growing demand for forces and a diminishing ability to pay for them America’s sea services have looked for ways to save money: keep ships at sea longer, increase sailors’ and Marines’ workload, cut orders for ships, cancel the purchase of ships that would modernize the fleet, and postpone maintenance of critical shore facilities (the Government Accountability Office reported in September that delayed maintenance and restoration for shipyards that service the Navy’s nuclear-powered fleet have increased by 41 percent in the past five years and will cost an additional $4.8 billion dollars over the next two decades). This slide did not take place overnight. [more...]

Dems Laundering Weinstein’s Money

Harvey Weinstein is a movie producer, but in Hollywood-on-the-Potomac, he has long been a major star funder of the Democratic Party.  Since 2000, he has donated almost $900,000 in cash to its left-liberal candidates, and he has bundled more than another $1.4 million from others for what liberal Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank calls this "socialist" party. The Democratic National Committee and many of its comrades are profoundly embarrassed, vowing to give at least a portion of Weinstein's now tainted money to others. Typical of these promised new recipients is EMILY's List. Emily in this case is not a woman's name, but an acronym for "Early Money Is Like Yeast."  It boosts the campaigns of leftist feminists with injections of early money. But is the Democratic Party truly expiating its sins? [more...]

Gun Control - Another Progressive Power Grab

We all know the worn-out ideas that the progressives predictably trot out after every massacre. And we know they are fallacious. More guns do not lead to more gun murder. Between 1993 and 2013, private gun ownership increased 56%, and gun homicides declined 49%. No, the point is not that more guns account for the declines - a straw-man correlation the media burns down to discredit this fact. The point is, the left’s call for more gun control after every mass shooting implies that fewer guns or more regulations would decrease murder rates. Not only is that idea false, the opposite is true: higher murder rates invariably follow more gun control. [more...]

Hillary, Michelle Obama and Planned Parenthood’s Wonderful Friend

Everyone knew Harvey Weinstein was a bad guy. The bloated, greasy movie mogul slimed his way through countless ballrooms, suites and restaurants trailing lies, threats and promises. But he had the right politics. At the 100th anniversary of Planned Parenthood, honoring the recently defeated candidate Hillary Clinton, drinks named “Toxic Masculinity” were being served. Also on the scene was Harvey Weinstein. And Harvey had his thick wallet open to the tune of $100K for the abortion organization. Harvey was sitting with Hillary... not to mention Meryl Streep and Shonda Rimes. [more...]

Has the President Come Undone?

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... We look at the deterioration in President Trump - according to his very best friends, allies, appointees and staffers. From Rex Tillerson calling the POTUS a “moron," to his long-time friend, Tom Barrack, saying, "He is better than this," and Steve Bannon saying Trump has only a 30% chance of making it through his term, it is clear: Trump is coming undone.

Did Someone Make a Fortune on the Vegas Attack?

I’ve argued since the first moments of the Vegas mass murder event that the killer had help... that someone funded, coordinated and planned the attack... and that it had all the hallmarks of a ISIS attack. That doesn’t mean it was. It just means it looks and smelled like one to me. Soon after, ISIS took credit not once, not twice, but three times. ISIS claimed the killer Stephen Paddock converted to Islam... and they even gave him an Islamic name. But here is the most compelling piece of information yet. It appears someone or some group made a fortune betting in advance on the Vegas mass murder. [more...]

Harvey Weinstein - Hollywood’s Open Secret

With the prospect of more sordid details yet to come, the Hollywood left and its favorite political party are feeling the heat. For his part, Weinstein appears to be of the mindset that he can resurrect his image by simply demonstrating his unwavering adherence to the tenets of liberalism. Despite his stature as a movie executive, bought-and-paid-for connections with numerous politicians, and sizable crisis management machine, Weinstein’s effort to be granted the same latitude as Woody Allen or Roman Polanski does not appear to be working. The tactical failure may be occurring, in part, because Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuse has a number of high-profile celebrity victims. [more...]

The Democrat Tax Plan - Dishonest Secret Taxes

According to the media, the Republican tax plan would cut taxes for the wealthy and businesses. But, oddly, the media have not honestly told you about the Democrat tax plan, which supposedly is to increase taxes on the rich and companies until they are paying their “fair share,” a term that neither Democrats nor the media ever define.

Iran Deal Sen. Corker Accuses Trump of WWIII

Yes, the politician who helped make the Iran deal happen really cares about America. And Corker's rhetoric sounds exactly like the stuff coming from the ‘Iran Firsters.’ We mustn't be rash... or there will be WWIII. Which the Iran nuke sellout is doing such a bang-up job of preventing. [more...]

Now Amazon Wants to Deal Drugs

Analysts have been speculating recently that Amazon’s next big move would be pharmaceuticals. A report from Leerink, a boutique investment firm specializing in the health care business, said that Amazon will certainly enter the prescription drug distribution sector in the coming years. Following the report, stock prices for Walgreens and CVS, the major market shareholders in prescription drug dispensing, fell by nearly 5%. The drop continued into Monday as both fell an additional 3%. If Amazon did choose to enter this sector, it would prove to be a considerable threat to its competitors. This has been seen before, most recently with Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods. Amazon has made great strides so far in the short time since it entered the grocery business and this could be the same for pharmaceuticals. [more...]

Trump vs. the Establishment - Who’s Ahead?

In the ongoing battle between Trump and the establishment, if you missed the tweet storm between President Trump and soon-to-retire Senator Bob Corker from Tennessee, you missed one of the opening battles of the 2018 Congressional elections.

Trump Puts Another Nail in the MSM’s Coffin with NFL’s Help

There’s no disputing that the dying mainstream media is Trump’s sworn enemy. Therefore, it seems reasonable that Trump will go to any extent necessary to vanquish this foe. Tweeting at daybreak, when most reporters are starting to come to grips with the day’s hangover, or trolling them with deliberate minor factual misstatements, which throws them into a frenzy, he never lets up. Trump is this war’s aggressor and he’s totally gotten into their decision loop. Fast forward to sports now being an accepted avenue of social protest/justice. A perfect venue for the nation’s CEO to insert himself and to watch the ensuing carnage spew forth. [more...]

Don’t Glorify the Shooter, Pray for the Victims

The media chooses to dramatize events, like the Las Vegas shootings, showing the shooters face, giving this monster’s 24/7 coverage, and making the body count the lead story. All of these actions by news teams fuel the fire and can end up making the shooter a hero, in their sick mind, which can lead to more mass shootings.  Expert psychoanalysts who study these kinds of behaviors and tragic events have warned the media how to handle the news coverage following an event like this, but of course the media does not listen. Reporters should not glorify that this is the largest mass shooting ever, nor should they provide such details as to give criminals any inside information that they may use in future tragic situations.  Unfortunately, following an event like this, law enforcement expects copycats to respond with more mass shootings, and dramatized media coverage can amplify the reaction of other lone gunmen who want to make a name for themselves by causing terror and destruction. [more...]

Taxing Our Patience - Business Taxes are Hidden Taxes on You

Gary Cohn, the director of President Donald Trump’s White House Economic Council says that he “can’t guarantee” that taxes will not go up for many in the middle class. The lowest marginal tax rate is to rise from 10 to 12 percent... but at what income amount this rate leaps to 25 and 35 percent has not been announced. The New York Times, The Atlantic and other liberal media are already quoting a study by “the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center” that claims the Republican plan would give huge tax breaks to the rich, increase the deficit by $2.4 trillion or more over 10 years, provide only crumbs to the working class, and over time greatly increase taxes on the middle and upper-middle classes. [more...]

Democrat Collusion

The Robert Mueller investigation persists, seemingly in search of some kind of crime that could possibly support the notion that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to deprive Hillary of her presidential destiny. Reportedly, the probe has focused on the social media, particularly the possibility that Facebook advertising sales to Russian entities may lead investigators to uncover some heretofore hidden illegalities. The possibility that founder Mark Zuckerberg and/or other Facebook executives knew about ad purchases from Russian entities and failed to report potential illegal activities to federal authorities has placed the Facebook management directly in the crosshairs of the investigation. The intriguing twist in this story is that the Russians that Mueller has been chasing actually used Facebook ads in late 2015 and early 2016 to promote the group Black Lives Matter, according to CNN. [more...]

Dems Won’t Stand for the Anthem or Moment of Silence

The NFL’s millionaire racists are taking a knee to protest America. But why protest a moment of silence for the victims of the worst mass shooting in this country’s history even if you, like some leftists, think they’re a bunch of “country-music listening, Trump-voting Republicans” who don’t deserve any sympathy? If you can’t stand for the anthem, can’t you at least stand for the innocent victims of a monstrous killer? [more...]

Trump’s Brilliant NFL Strategy

I think you will see Trump’s political instincts are superb and his response to the NFL protests were actually a brilliant political strategy that will pay off with handsome dividends in 2018 and in 2020. The president’s political strategy has had three major impacts on the political dynamics of America in the fall of 2017: first, this political strategy solidifies Trump’s base; second, it is bringing more people from the old Democrat Party alliance into Trump’s orbit of support; and third, this political strategy is further isolating the left and Democrat Party from main street American voters. [more...]

America’s Dumbest Congresswoman Kneels in Congress to Support NFL Racists

Sheila Jackson Lee seems to think that NFL players are disrespecting the anthem because Trump called them sons of bitches. Rather than the other way around. The saddest part is that this is a pre-written speech she's reading from a piece of paper. Then she accuses President Trump of abridging speech with tweets. And how better to stand with America, the flag and our soldiers than by disrespecting the anthem. But there are excellent odds that Sheila Jackson Lee has no idea what the protests are about. This is the woman who thought that we won the Vietnam War. And that the Constitution is 400 years old. [more...]

I Stand for the Flag

It’s been a few days since the NFL decided to protest the American flag. Before Sunday, it was a few pro football’s players’ choice to kneel in protest while the national anthem was being sung before kickoff, but that escalated when entire teams knelt and stood locked in arms in protest of our country. Although I am strongly against their actions, I do believe that they have a constitutional right to protest. However, I also believe that there is a time and a place for everything. In this case, kneeling in protest before an NFL game was not the right time nor the right place. Although they were on a football field, the players were still in a professional environment. Their actions would be equivalent to any one of us protesting at our place of work. Their actions were not just unpatriotic, but also unprofessional. [more...]

Is it Time for Racial Equality in Pro Sports?

African-American males are only about six percent of America's population, yet they are so talented that they are approximately 70 percent of NFL and 74.4 percent of NBA players. Perhaps the NFL and NBA, to fix this racial equality, should be required to hire and fire players by race until by, say, 2020, each team fits the mix of America itself. In the most recent Census, the USA was 12.6 percent African-American, 16.3 percent Hispanic or Latino, 4.8 percent Asian-American, and 72.4 percent white. NFL and NBA players should reflect that same racial proportion. If our sports are to be politicized, then it is time we make merit and talent secondary and impose racial quotas first and foremost. Sports should reflect America's proportion of races. [more...]

Trump Should Reject Fatally Flawed International Institutions

Trump’s recent comments about renegotiating the Paris agreement and reforming the UN imply an acceptance of the assumptions on which both are built: that multilateral cooperation is better able to serve the interests and security of the United States. If this is so, then Trump is buying into the flaws of those assumptions that need to be utterly discredited in order to enact meaningful change. [more...]

Chuck Schumer and Democrat Allies Use Jimmy Kimmel as a Political Pawn

After late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used the opportunity of his show to launch a series of attacks on the latest Senate version of the GOP’s health care legislation, many folks were wondering how it was that Kimmel had become such an authority on health care in general, and on the Graham-Cassidy bill in particular. It turns out that the co-writer of Kimmel’s health care remarks was none other than Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. [more...]

The Ideological Hijacking of the University

The corruption of American higher education has been in the news a lot in the last few years. “Snowflakes” and “safe spaces,” crowds of thugs shutting down conservative speakers, craven administrators caving in to demands of activist students and faculty have become increasingly common since the rise of Donald Trump sparked a “resistance” movement. Even progressives who have run afoul of campus terrorists are writing books about free speech now that their revolutionary children have started devouring their own. The ideological hijacking of the university and the betrayal of its traditional mission has finally grabbed the national spotlight. [more...]

Looming Obamagate will Make Watergate Look like a Misdemeanor

We are in the beginning phase of Obamagate. This is our generation’s Watergate... except far worse. The media and liberal critics went ballistic when Donald Trump tweeted in March that Barack Obama spied on him. CNN tweeted, “Trump’s baseless wiretap claim” and, “Trump just flat-out lied about wiretapping.” Well guess who was right? Trump - again. According to multiple media reports out last week, officials in the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. They wiretapped Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort both before and after the election. It appears other top Trump aides were also wiretapped, as was Trump Tower. [more...]

Germany’s Merkel Still Standing

In Sunday’s national elections, Chancellor Angela Merkel won a fourth term in office, but with less than 33% of the vote for her Christian Union bloc - its worst showing since the end of World War II. Mistaken polls projected she would win 37-38%, down from 41% in 2013. Merkel had ruled in coalition with the soft socialist Social Democrats, who won only 20.7%, also their lowest vote since World War II. Her partner in parliamentary power now says that their marriage of strange political bedfellows is over. Merkel, the head of Europe’s most powerful country, had become the anti-Donald Trump, the world leader who stood for globalist policies, an end of nationalism, and the collectivism of the European Union. Indeed, Germany created the European Union, and the Euro to replace national currencies. This was its third attempt in the 20th Century, as Craig R. Smith and I explain in our latest book Money, Morality & The Machine, to conquer and control the whole of Europe. [more...]

‘Rocket Man’ Grandstanding

“Rocket Man” is a grandstanding showman who has succeeded in getting international attention far out of proportion to his or his country’s importance. True, the North Koreans have missiles and nuclear weapons, but there is no evidence that they possess the ability to fire an ICBM with the expectation that it would survive re-entry through the earth’s atmosphere after entering space and crossing the Pacific. So, their principal threat - at least for now - is to neighboring states with which the U.S. has treaty obligations, and would stand by them. In short, Kim Jong-Un gets tremendous attention for threats which if he carried out would result in the end of his and his family’s rule in North Korea.

Through the Perilous Fight

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... We discuss why Donald Trump attacked NFL players. Is there a "hidden motive" here? A distraction from some other story? What about the Friday report from Homeland Security that 21 states were hacked during last year's election? And that Facebook was used by the Russians to promote Trump's campaign? What about Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, using a "private e-mail account" for government business... [more...]

Three Reasons Why a New NAFTA Should Not Last Forever

Crony capitalists and globalists want a flawed trade agreement immune from updates, sensible revisions

Back in 1993, there was a major debate about the first big, modern trade agreement called the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Promises were made about job creation, economic growth, a win-win agreement. NAFTA passed.

The next year, Mexico crashed. Presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio was assassinated on videotape. Maya Indian rebels marched out of the forest declaring NAFTA a death sentence for Mexico's Indians, setting off the most serious guerrilla uprising in a generation. Subcomandante Marcos wrote a love letter to newly elected president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León stating, "Welcome to the nightmare." Mexico devalued the peso, causing an economic crisis. Mexico has never recovered.

The Trump administration is reportedly considering a proposal that any new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) be temporary, rather than permanent. Crony capitalists and globalists are ramping up their opposition, claiming the need for "business certainty" as they continue offshoring our economy and jobs. [more...]

U.S. Navy Ongoing Investigations

Relieving the commander of Combined Task Force 70 and the commodore of Destroyer Squadron 15 is consistent with the Navy’s tradition of holding officers responsible for events that occur under their command and over which they have control.  But while relieving officers strengthens accountability, it does not, it cannot, address the root of the problem which is that American seapower is over-stretched. At the end of the Cold War, the U.S. combat fleet numbered approximately 600 ships. Today we have 276. The requirements that the Navy is asked to fill have been increasing steadily since a few years after the Cold War ended. Yet, our elected representatives in both the legislative and executive branches of government have acted in recent administrations as though the U.S. military has not been affected by underfunding, reduced budgets and legislative caps that effectively prevent corrective action.  The problem today is not only the size and modernization of the fleet, but the political will to restore American seapower so that it can meet the multiplying requirements expected of it.

America Needs a Tax Reformation

In today’s struggle between globalist collectivism and nationalist individualism, we need more than tax reform. We need a Tax Reformation that again puts the individual taxpayer above the government and reasserts the ancient Roman Cicero’s motto that the good of the people is the highest law. Government is supposed to serve us, not overtax our achievers to serve the greed of selfish politicians and the state. The United States, which began as a free enterprise nation, now imposes a 35 percent tax rate on businesses, the highest among advanced countries. [more...]

CA Dems Protect Child Rapists and Fight Trump

California legislators compulsively generate bills that are immune to math, laws, precedent or legality. And that can only produce a complete and utter disaster if they are implemented. And they wouldn’t have it any other way. In addition to the multiple gratuitous legislative attacks on President Trump, which are as bizarre as they are unprecedented, there was a bill, introduced by Senator Scott Wiener of San Francisco, to remove sex offenders from the sex offender registry. Wiener claimed that the sex offender registry was homophobic. The bill, which passed, will allow child rapists to be removed after 20 years, and gives child pornography distributors a pass after 10 years. [more...]

UC Berkeley to Shut Down Campus for Free Speech Week

A faculty letter addressed to the UC Berkeley campus and the Berkeley community at large is calling for a complete boycott of classes and campus activities during the upcoming “Free Speech Week," which will feature conservative speakers whose very names inspire college students to seek safe spaces and therapy. The Berkeley paper, The Daily Californian, reports that the letter was co-written by seven faculty members, including Michael Cohen, a campus associate teaching professor of African American studies. The letter urges fellow faculty members to take three steps: cancel classes and tell students to stay home; close buildings and departments and allow staff to stay home; and not penalize students who are afraid of coming to campus. The letter was signed by 132 campus faculty members from various departments, and by 56 individuals who aren’t part of the UC Berkeley faculty. [more...]

While out promoting her new movie, “Mother,” Jennifer Lawrence suggested that the devastation in Texas and Florida, which was caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, was “Mother Nature’s revenge and wrath” due to the sizable portion of the American people that had voted for President Trump and had failed to embrace the theory of man-caused global warming. Lawrence had already alienated many would-be filmgoers with her avid support of Planned Parenthood and participation in a video this year against any de-funding for the abortion provider. [more...]

Trump ‘Winging it’ with the Democrats

President Trump’s sudden and unexpected moves over the last two weeks to side with Congressional Democrats - Charles Schumer and the much-reviled-on-the-right Nancy Pelosi - on raising the debt limit ceiling and the general thrust of immigration reform was yet another example of a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants decision-making process that has so far resulted after more than seven months with virtually no legislative accomplishments.

U.S. Navy Compromised... May Not Be Prepared for NK Attack

The distinguished author of the new bestselling book, Seablindness: How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower and What to Do About ItFmr. Deputy Undersecretary of the U.S. Navy Seth Cropsey, speaks out about the situation in North Korea.  In his new book, he exposes how years of underfunding has left our nation’s most strategic arm of defense - American naval power - smaller today than any point since before World War I.

Cropsey says, “We had two collisions this summer between U.S. Navy ballistic missile defense-equipped destroyers and merchant ships.  Replacements for those two ships are necessary.  Replacing is far more difficult with the smaller fleet that seablindness has produced.  Also, if hostilities were to occur, the U.S. would be very hard-pressed to conduct sustained combat operations against North Korea without pulling ships from other hotspots around the world.  And other potential adversaries could well see an opportunity if we were removing ships from, for example, the Arabian Gulf or the East Mediterranean to answer the demand off the coast of N. Korea.  If this happened, Iran and ISIS would be delighted.”

Overhaul NAFTA or Walk Away

We sent a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Friday, urging him to reject calls to merely “tweak” or “modernize” the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The letter states: “we support administration efforts to overhaul NAFTA or walk away. Voters did not choose a presidential candidate to merely ‘tweak’ or ‘modernize’ NAFTA. They want a fundamentally new direction in trade deals.” Our letter outlines how a new NAFTA can make American strong rather than weak and includes 12 specific recommendations with a focus upon trade imbalances and currency misalignment. [more...]

As Irma Abates, Mueller Awaits

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... We discuss the hyper-speed with which Special Counsel Robert Mueller is moving and the Russia investigation is unfolding: his request to interview six top-level White House aides; the daily revelations that Facebook was cleverly used by Russian agents to influence the 2016 election; the increased pressure on Paul Manafort to flip against Trump; the Steve Bannon claim that there was "absolutely nothing" to the Russian story - while an elected member of the Russian Parliament said on TV, "U.S. intelligence missed the fact that Russian intelligence stole the American President."

Will Trump Run in 2020 as a Republican?

If you thought the 2016 presidential election was an historic race with some unexpected twists and turns, just wait until the 2020 presidential election when the Trump run for reelection might completely shock you. It looks increasingly like the 2020 presidential election will be even more tumultuous than even the surprising 2016 election. Why? There are many dynamics at play; and critical battles are shaping up as we move toward the mid-term 2018 Congressional elections. [more...]

9/11 - We Forgot

In the weeks following 9/11, American flags flew on every corner. Athletes and fans couldn’t manage to hold back tears as they stood proudly for the national anthem before game time. Volunteers nationwide gave a helping hand to our courageous first responders, still searching for survivors, and clearing the still smoking rubble from the blood-soaked streets. You couldn’t go anywhere without seeing someone wearing a FDNY or NYPD hat out of respect for our heroes. We were fearful and we were sorrowful, but mostly, we were united, by our American identity. We made a vow to those we lost that we would “Never Forget.” Flash forward 16 years and it’s as if we’ve entered the Twilight Zone. Not only have we forgotten that which we promised we would not, but the national pride which once unified us has been replaced by an endless stream of anti-American propaganda. [more...]
