High Court Overrules Leftist Judicial Insanity
By Joseph Klein
The Supreme Court has restored a measure of sanity to the judiciary. On Monday, it overruled significant portions of the decisions of two of the country's most liberal federal appeals courts, enjoining the implementation of President Trump's 90-day suspension of travel from six terrorist prone countries and 120-day suspension on the entry of all refugees. The Supreme Court handed the president a partial victory, but a victory nonetheless. His second executive order temporarily suspending travel from Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Sudan, Libya and Syria, pending an executive department review of current vetting procedures, has now been cleared to go into effect immediately, except as to visitors with "a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States."

Monumental Costs in New Orleans
Last month the iconic statue of confederate General Robert E. Lee was removed. This was the last of four confederate era statues to be removed as they were collectively declared a public nuisance. The controversy over the removal of these monuments reflect the true polarized nature of the New Orleanian population. While much of New Orleans takes fierce pride in their Southern traditions and history, others see the confederate monuments as a means of romanticizing men who fought for the preservation slavery, as well as men who committed treason and sedition against the United States. The total cost for the project was a staggering $2.1 million. [more...]
Johnny Depp May Have Broken the Law
By James Hirsen
While out promoting his latest film at the Glastonbury arts festival in the U.K., actor Johnny Depp let loose with a not-so-veiled threat on the life of the President of the United States. Depp’s statement begs the question of whether or not the actor committed an illegal act. The United States Code in Title 18, Section 871 makes the threatening of the President of the United States a felony. Anyone who “knowingly and willfully” makes “any threat to take the life of...” the president can be sentenced for up to five years and/or fined. Depp’s case would be investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, and law enforcement professionals there would have to determine whether the statements made could be considered a genuine threat.

Tesla, North Korea, NAFTA and Rethinking America’s Growth Strategy?
President Trump declared that China’s efforts with North Korea have failed. Tesla, despite Elon Musk’s prior commitment to USA-made electric cars, announced that it is in talks to build a plant in Shanghai. It may be time to shift America’s China strategy away from diplomacy towards actions we can take without negotiations. After campaigning aggressively against China’s nationalistic and economic aggressiveness, the Trump Administration decided to try more standard diplomacy. North Korean missile testing was a very important backstory. In April, China agreed to help prevent Kim Jong Un from conducting more nuclear missile testing. The Trump administration did not declare China a currency manipulator in April. [more...]
Will America Die of Puerto Rican Plague?
By Lowell Ponte
According to the Constitution, no U.S. state or territory such as Puerto Rico can escape a $74 billion debt – run up by liberal-spending, vote-buying local politicians – by declaring bankruptcy. But the U.S. Congress opened the door last year via PROMESA legislation to something like Puerto Rican bankruptcy, thereby setting a precedent for states such as Illinois – whose irresponsible politicians have put them into an economic “death spiral” – to renege on their debts as well.

Trump Needs to Fight Back Against Vicious Liberals
Here’s a simple four-step plan that guarantees victories for Trump and the GOP in 2018 and 2020. Mr. President, please understand your opposition is vicious. They want to destroy you. They don’t care what they have to do to achieve their goals - and that clearly includes encouraging and inspiring violence and even assassination. You humiliated liberals. You shocked them with your November victory. You’ve literally driven them mad with rage. The typical liberal needs a straitjacket, a rubber room and his mommy. But this is no laughing matter. They want to stop you at all costs. Even after the D.C. shooting, Bernie Sanders went on TV and recommended liberal radicals “act in unprecedented ways... fight back in every way you can.” [more...]
