How Today's Dems are Seizing Power
By Lowell Ponte

2018 will go down as the year Democrats left democracy dying in the dust. Republican wins were not close, so Democrats in both Arizona and Florida seem to have invented many tens of thousands of votes in an arrogant criminal attempt to steal high government offices. Democrats now assume they can get away with unlimited Grand Theft Government because they control the unelected branches of government that were supposed to prevent such crimes. They own most of the judges. They own most of the “journalists” who were supposed to be watchdogs against government corruption, but who are now Democratic lapdogs ready to broadcast any lie that serves their leftist masters. The election thieves will not be caught, because those charged with stopping them are now Democrat comrades. How do they concoct votes? [more...]


How Did #MeToo Score in the Mid-terms?
By Karen Kataline

For almost a year, I’ve been writing about the Democrats’ attempt to turn women into the next big victim-group-turned-voting-bloc just in time for the mid-terms. Consequently, they also attempted to turn straight men into blocs of their perpetrators. (Toxic masculinity anyone?)  I believe this has been one of the prime motivators for the blatant politicization of the #MeToo movement. You may remember that the “community organizing of women” came the day after Trump’s inauguration when Democrats were forced to turn hoards of women who were prepared to celebrate a Hillary win into a hoard of women protesting Donald Trump. [more...]


SNL Apology is the Real Deal
By James Hirsen

This past weekend “Saturday Night Live” showed how an apology is done. Producer Lorne Michaels, cast member Pete Davidson, and writers of the show expressed their sincere contrition for the wrong committed during the previous week’s show. In an interesting sidebar to “SNL”’s faux pas and subsequent public apology, it looks as though a new GOP figure has emerged with a future as bright as the stars. Dan Crenshaw, a veteran of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, ran for Congress in the recent mid-term elections in a district in Houston, Texas. The former Navy SEAL wears an eye patch, because his right eye was lost as a result of an I.E.D. explosion that took place in Afghanistan while he was serving the nation. Crenshaw was the object of vicious “SNL” ridicule, when, during the “Weekend Update” segment of the show, Davidson, displayed a picture of him with his eye patch intact and said, “You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie.” [more...]


Kimmel Lets Borat Sexualize the First Lady
By Christian Toto

Jimmy Kimmel invited Sacha Baron Cohen onto his show last week. The British comic introduced an election-themed video featuring his Borat character. He’s the clueless, sexist, Jew-hating reporter from Kazakhstan. The bit found Borat trotting out the usual anti-Trump bromides – he called the President “Premier Trump” to play up the faux Russian collusion angle. Late in the routine Borat interviews a Republican voter, bringing up the First Lady in awkward fashion. [more...]


At the VA, Bureaucrats - not the Doctors - Hold the Scalpel
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Staff at nine Veterans Affairs hospitals recently canceled more than 250,000 orders for diagnostic tests. They thought the orders were duplicative or unnecessary. In many cases, they were mistaken. As a result, veterans went without needed CT scans, ultrasounds, and other potentially lifesaving tests, according to a USA Today investigation. This is just the latest failure in the VA's long history of denying care for veterans. Rolling out government-run health care nationwide, in the form of "Medicare for All," would be an unmitigated disaster for patients. [more...]


Midnight in Paris for an Uneasy President
By John LeBoutillier

On the latest edition of REVOLUTION_The Podcast... we analyze the “depressed” and seemingly angry mood of Donald Trump since the Midterm elections. What has happened to cause this anger and reported “sour” state since last Tuesday? Why the shunning of many allies in Paris and remaining in his hotel room? [more...]

Experts Say China Telecom Diverted U.S. Internet Traffic Through China

By Jeff Ferry

Three Internet security experts have accused state-owned telecom giant China Telecom of diverting internal U.S. Internet traffic through China. The purpose, apparently, was corporate espionage.

According to Doug Madory, an expert on Internet traffic at Silicon Valley software maker Oracle, China Telecom’s network sent out false signals that diverted Internet traffic supposedly bound for the Verizon network onto the China Telecom network. The traffic passed through Hangzhou and other Chinese cities, and this went on undetected for an incredible 30 months, from late 2015 through 2017, according to Madory.

“China Telecom… has misdirected Internet traffic (including out of the United States) in recent years. I know because I expended a great deal of effort to stop it in 2017,” Madory wrote in his Nov. 5th blog post on Oracle’s website, entitled “China Telecom’s Internet Traffic Misdirection.” [more...]

The Kavanaugh Election
By Daniel Greenfield

The Democrats raised $950 million to take the House and another $513 million to take the Senate. They boosted their spending by 44% while Republican spending only rose by 21% since the last midterms. With that much at stake, just as in the Kavanaugh nomination, the Democrats used every dirty trick. Republicans were harassed, threatened, assaulted and even shot. The media accused them of racism, sexism and treason. No smear was too low. No accusation too improbable. And some of them worked. Before the election, these tactics exploded in the Kavanaugh hearings... and so did the backlash. [more...]


Strong Jobs Growth in October Powers U.S. Economy Forward
By Michael Stumo

The latest monthly jobs report shows that the U.S. economy continues to grow strongly and create jobs. However, a September trade deficit running 21 percent worse than a year ago means urgent action is required on the trade front. The monthly jobs summary reported 250,000 new jobs in October, including 32,000 new manufacturing jobs. So far this year, U.S. manufacturing has added 296,000 jobs, the best record since 1995. Unemployment remains at a historically low level of 3.7 percent, while 3.1 percent growth in average hourly earnings has finally broken through the 3 percent threshold. [more...]


Hollywood's Closing Argument - 'We're All Going to Die!'
By Christian Toto

Some of Hollywood's biggest stars spent the weekend begging us to give the House back to the Dems.  How? 'We’re all gonna die if the GOP retains control of Congress,' they cried. Or, even worse, 'Nazism will rise again, turning the Land of the Free into the Home of the Concentration Camp.' Sound like hyperbole? It’s the precise message being sent by some celebrity elite.  [more...]


Congressional Transparency Scorecard
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of “Operation Drain the Swamp”

You can't make America great again unless you hold America accountable again. It's time for a Transparency Revolution. More transparency means more accountability. We developed a Congressional Transparency Scorecard, assigning a grade for each member of the U.S. House of Representatives based on voting records and legislation sponsorship. We awarded passing grades to members who help open the books and keep government transparent. Unfortunately, 205 representatives received a "D" or an "F." How is your district's representative performing on transparency? Check our full report for their transparency score here. [more...]


Democrats Bet Their Midterm Fortunes on Failed Health Care Policy
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Health care has been the most-mentioned issue in Democratic advertisements in the run-up to this month's midterm elections. Many Democrats are making Medicare for All the centerpiece of their pitch to voters. Clearly, Democrats didn't learn their lesson in 2010, when their previous effort at government micromanagement of the health care sector - ObamaCare - cost them their House majority. By supporting single-payer, Democrats are doubling down. Apparently, the problem with ObamaCare wasn't that it rendered health insurance unaffordable for millions. It's that it didn't inject enough government into the health care marketplace. Only a full-scale federal takeover of one-fifth of the economy will do. [more...]


Lowe's is Closing 51 Stores in the U.S. and Canada
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

Lowe's is planning to close around 51 of its home improvement stores, including 30 in Canada due to underperforming results from those locations. As part of a restructuring initiative, Lowe’s CEO Marvin Ellison plans to close stores whose sales are not reaching expected results. Lowe's main competition is Home Depot whose sales far exceed the sales of Lowes. [more...]


Sharia, Corruption and Jew-hatred Come to the House
By Robert Spencer

As expected, two Muslim women, Rashida Tlaib in Michigan and Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, have been overwhelmingly elected to Congress. The establishment media will celebrate these victories as triumphs of America’s “diversity.” Unfortunately, in reality, neither one is worth celebrating. Tlaib is a vociferous foe of Israel. With the Democrats now regaining control of the House, Tlaib is likely to be an energetic proponent of the new majority’s vendetta against the Middle East’s only democracy. The House is likely to do all it can to roll back President Trump’s pro-Israel polices, with Tlaib as well as Omar as becoming the public faces of the effort. [more...]

Will We Vote to Destroy Ourselves?
By Lowell Ponte

Elections have consequences, said Barack Obama. He was right. Among the unexpected consequences of voting for him were eight years of economic stagnation, an almost-destroyed American Dream, and a 50-year setback in race relations caused by his relentless divide-and-conquer politics of polarization. These problems reversed in 2016 with the election of Donald Trump, who in less than two years has restored our economy to 4.2 percent growth, reduced unemployment for all groups to the lowest levels ever measured, and in the single month of October alone created an average salary increase of 3.1 percent.

Such an amazing achievement should win overwhelming reelection for Mr. Trump’s party this November. But polls show the leftist media and other Democratic comrades have waged such a one-sided campaign of hate against him that Republicans might lose one, or even both, Houses of Congress. If this happens, the Trump economic miracle could be stymied and destroyed. Millennials whipped into irrational frenzy against the President will be tricked into voting to ruin their own future prosperity. Democrats eager to reverse America’s economic success will become the Grinch-o-crats who steal Christmas. [more...]


Dems' Policies of the Past Match Trump of the Present
By James Hirsen

When it comes to the issue of immigration, a lot of Democrats are singing a different tune than the one the Party sang in the past. The current crop of Democrat leaders are advocating for open borders, throwing their support behind so-called sanctuary cities and states, seeking to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, and believe it or not, actively engaging in voter registration of non-citizens. Some leaders are even pushing to completely abolish ICE, the very agency responsible for enforcing border security. As a result of some of the policies that the Trump administration has implemented, especially the policies that attempt to enforce the rule of law, a sizable segment of the Hollywood community thinks, most likely erroneously, that they have found a safe opening through which they can enter the political arena. The safe opening to which I refer is what left-wing activists have labeled the “separation of families.” [more...]


Justice for Kavanaugh?
By Karen Kataline

The woman who claimed to write an anonymous letter accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of raping her in his car has admitted that she lied. Judy Munro-Leighton turned out to be a left-wing activist who admitted that she did it because she was angry. She has never met Justice Kavanaugh. That’s a pretty clear contradiction to the liberal chorus that women never lie about sexual assault. "Women don’t want to call attention to themselves that way,” they say. “That means they should always be believed,” is their refrain. Munro-Leighton admitted that she did it for the attention. Now it's in the hands of the Department of Justice to investigate her for potentially making 'materially false statements' and for 'obstruction'. [more...]


Media Hid Baldwin's Hate
By Christian Toto

It’s becoming clear that Alec Baldwin has been treating people, women in particular, very badly for some time. The news finally leaked this week after Baldwin, 60, got arrested after allegedly punching someone over a parking spot dispute. His arrest let several reporters add their own Alec Baldwin stories to the news cycle.  We already knew Baldwin used a gay slur in the past. His combative nature against photographers and journalists alike is crystal clear. The airline incident where his rage got him kicked off a plane rocked a news cycle or two. That’s on top of the terrible voicemail leak where he called his young daughter a “rude, thoughtless pig.” [more...]


U.S. Manufacturing Resurgence is Broad-Based
By Jeff Ferry

Manufacturing employment in the U.S. has now shown year-on-year growth of more than 250,000 employees for six consecutive months, the largest and most sustained manufacturing job growth we’ve seen since 1998. Manufacturing employment may finally be on the path to a real recovery from the severe downturn that began in 2001, when we lost 1.47 million manufacturing jobs in a single year. As of October, the U.S. added 296,000 manufacturing jobs compared with the previous October. That’s equivalent to a 2.4% increase in manufacturing jobs over the year, with total manufacturing employment standing at 12.785 million in October, per Bureau of Labor Statistics data. [more...]


"Dummycrats" Director Tells of Firsthand Look at the Border

Kyle Olson, of The American Mirror and writer and director of “Dummycrats” featuring Diamond and Silk, is available to discuss making the movie with the social media stars, and the impact that the film has had. Kyle appears in the film when the ladies dispatch him to the border to better understand the problem with illegal immigration and the need for a border wall. Watch a portion of that scene here. He can give behind-the-scenes insights into filming in the districts of Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters. The film, which debuted in nearly 800 theaters across the country in mid-October, is available via streaming and DVD at DummycratsTheMovie.com. It’s a movie every undecided voter should see before the midterm elections.

Pence's Little-Noticed Speech Marked a New U.S. Realism Toward China
By Michael Stumo

A seismic shot across the bow, Vice President Mike Pence’s Oct. 4 on speech U.S.-China policy garnered surprisingly little coverage. But historians may well mark it as a significant turning point in great power relations. Pence’s address to the Hudson Institute heralded a dramatic shift in America’s approach to Beijing. He clearly and starkly announced that America is initiating a dramatic decoupling from a growing rival. There’s a strong economic basis for the shift. China’s rise has been funded in large part by excessive reliance on America’s consumers. The U.S. racks up trade deficits with China that amount to hundreds of billions annually. And this massive trade debt has already cost the U.S. 3.4 million jobs since 2001. [more...]


Hollywood's Biggest Stars are Back, Begging You to Support the 'Blue Wave'… But is Anyone Watching Them?
By Christian Toto

We’re days before another major election, so you know what that means - Hollywood stars shooting celebrity PSAs to boost the proverbial “Blue Wave” - only, the results this time around are far from vital. The star-studded "Save the Day" video, dropped weeks before the 2016 presidential election, drew massive views. Today, the number stands at more than 8 million, a figure likely amassed during that year’s campaign. In the last few weeks we’ve seen a flurry of celebrity PSAs hoping to smite President Trump’s agenda; only, the YouTube views on the clips haven’t exactly matched “Save the Day.” [more...]


Jew-Haters Support a Massacre of Jews
By Daniel Greenfield

The fake news media has made it official. Criticizing George Soros, an anti-Semite and alleged Nazi collaborator, is anti-Semitic. The Washington Post alone ran two dishonest screeds, “Conspiracy Theories about Soros Aren't Just False, They're Anti-Semitic” and “A Conspiracy Theory about George Soros and a Migrant Caravan Inspired Horror.” The former comes from Talia Lavin, a former New Yorker fact checker who had to resign after falsely claiming that a wheelchair bound ICE agent’s Afghanistan platoon tattoo was Nazi insignia. Seeing her potential for smearing people, Media Matters hired her as a “researcher” on “far-right extremism." What wasn’t good enough for the New Yorker was good enough for the Washington Post, which brought in a disgraced employee of Media Matters, an organization funded by George Soros, to accuse Soros critics of anti-Semitism. The Post did not see fit to inform readers of the fact that its pro-Soros screed was funded by a Soros group, only describing Lavin as “a writer and researcher based in Brooklyn.” [more...]


When a Vote for Trump Provides a License to Destroy a Man’s Character and Credibility by Any Means Necessary
By David Horowitz

Since the election of Donald Trump, it has often seemed as if half the country has gone blind or, more likely, lost the ability to see beyond their noses. The divisions that have resulted are so deep they have split us effectively into two nations, damaging and destroying individual relationships at every level. The political left and its media blame Trump for this fracturing of the nation’s fabric, but Trump was first the target of accusations that he was a traitor, colluding with the Russians, a racist and white nationalist betraying the country’s founding principles. And it was the Democrats who launched a “resistance” to his presidency, boycotting his inauguration and demanding his overthrow from day one of his presidency. [more...]


The Pittsburgh Shootings Highlight National Challenges
By Rabbi D.B. Ganz

The synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh highlights two deadly-serious national challenges. The first is specific and the second is general. The first difficulty is just staggering. If the Pittsburgh shootings and others like it in the recent past can happen, every public place in America is a potential target. Posting armed guards all over would turn the country into an armed camp. And it still wouldn't provide absolute safety, for every place people go cannot be guarded at all times. So, what should be done? The second more general problem is even more troubling. [more...]

The Pittsburgh Shootings Highlight National Challenges

By Rabbi D.B. Ganz

The synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh highlights two deadly-serious national challenges. The first is specific and the second is general. The first difficulty is just staggering. If the Pittsburgh shootings and others like it in the recent past can happen, every public place in America is a potential target. Posting armed guards all over would turn the country into an armed camp. And it still wouldn't provide absolute safety, for every place people go cannot be guarded at all times. So, what should be done? The second more general problem is even more troubling.

When I grew up in the 1950s, I don't recall that there was ever even one mass shooting. But not only didn't it occur, no one would have imagined that anything like that could ever happen in the USA. Similarly, no one would have dreamt that airplane passengers would have to first pass through metal detectors, that big city public schools would need armed police guards at all times to keep things safe, that edibles sold in bottles would require a seal under the cap to prevent people from inserting poisons - and so on. How did our society become so dangerous? Is Western Civilization beating a path toward savagery?

If we can fix the second problem, it will mostly resolve the first one as well. But if the second one endures, there is probably scant hope for solving the first one.

Brave. Brilliant. Blexit.
By Karen Kataline

There has been a profound need to tell the truth to the black community about how they’ve been used and exploited for votes. In return, they got slums, ghettos, crime and poverty. It’s tough to find a way to tell someone they’ve been duped. But we’ve also seen how easy it is for people to change on a dime when there’s a powerful cultural phenomenon. I have more than a hunch that Blexit could be that phenomenon. It won’t be easy. The demonization has already begun.  The left thinks of their victim groups as mascots and they don’t like it when their pets escape. Maybe after Blexit, we can finally have a Jexit (Jews’ exit from liberalism.) Look for the Left to once again lose their minds. This ought to be fun. [more...]


The Ugly Truth About The Simpsons' Controversial Indian Character's Exit
By Christian Toto

Earlier this year Groening appeared defiant in the face of a documentary slamming Apu, the show’s Indian character, as a hurtful stereotype. His iconic series addressed the matter in an episode where Marge and Lisa discussed a similar subject. That was in April, a lifetime ago in social justice time. Now, it appears Apu is heading for the exit, stage far left. Seeing a show like the “The Simpsons” buckle to the PC Police, do they privately think the controversy is overblown? Are they sad to see Hank Azaria, the voice of Apu, out of a gig? Have they considered the chilling effect on free speech ApuGate delivers? [more...]


Megyn Kelly's Legal Battle Ensnares NBC News Chair Andy Lack
By James Hirsen

It looks like Megyn Kelly is playing hardball with the Peacock network. Her television show “Megyn Kelly Today” was summarily canceled a short two days after a controversial episode of the show aired on NBC. The episode in question contained an anecdote told by Kelly, which many found offensive and consequently set the social media ablaze. Possibly believing that she could make things right, at the opening of the subsequent show Kelly offered an emotional apology and received a standing ovation from the in-studio audience. In addition to the public apology, she sent a contrite letter to her colleagues. The apology and letter were essentially ignored by NBC News brass. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack slammed Kelly’s on-air comments during a town hall event that he held for news division staff. [more...]


The Antidote for October Surprises
By Lowell Ponte

One of the highest art forms in our democratic politics has been the “October Surprise,” a news bomb designed to explode so close to Election Day that an opponent – having too little time to answer it – is destroyed by this last-minute surprise attack. with only days to go before the November election, an honest voter should assume that any new “October Surprise” is false. If such an attack were valid, then why was it sprung at the last minute, too late to be evaluated or scrutinized? Second, if the other side uses such a sneak attack to win, what does this tell us about their integrity – and their contempt for our intelligence and sense of fairness? Before Election Day, we may see several October Surprises used to smear Republican candidates - or to motivate Democratic, intimidate GOP, or alienate independent voters. Consider three recent surprises… [more...]


Tolerance for Anti-Semitism Must End
By Brigitte Gabriel

Too often, hatred against Jews is disregarded as an almost archaic form of racism. The horrific massacre shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue is a tragic reminder that anti-Semitism is alive and well in the United States. The same hatred which led Hitler to commit unthinkable genocide against innocent Jews still persists throughout the world and, tragically, here in the United States. Remarkably, despite being most of the hate crimes, anti-Semitism seems to be one of the only forms of hatred and bigotry that is still tolerated by the mainstream media. It’s almost as if this hatred is seen as an ancient myth and in the most egregious circumstances, the mainstream press is actually propagating it. The civilized world must band together in solidarity to ensure that people of all faiths can live in peace and harmony and that Jews are never persecuted and victimized by barbaric, murderous ideologies ever again. To allow anti-Semitism to continue to exist unchecked in the 21st century destroys a piece of everyone’s humanity. There is simply no room for such hatred in the world. [more...]


94,000 Public Employees & Retirees Cost Taxpayers $12B
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of “Operation Drain the Swamp”

Let us introduce you to the Illinois $100,000 Club that cost taxpayers $12 billion. It's comprised of 93,798 public employees and retirees who earned a new “minimum wage” of $100,000 or more. While Illinois is broke, and it continues to flirt with junk bond status, the public employee class is living the good life. Our auditors found three doctors at the University of Illinois at Chicago with incomes between $1 million and $1.6 million; 633 educators out-earned every governor of the 50 states ($190,000 to $407,000); and 130 small town or government administrators made between $190,000 and $324,000.

Tolerance for Anti-Semitism Must End



Too often, hatred against Jews is disregarded as an almost archaic form of racism. The horrific massacre shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue is a tragic reminder that anti-Semitism is alive and well in the United States. 

As someone whose life was touched by the nation of Israel, the Tree of Life shooting, which cut eleven innocent lives short, tears at my heart. As a little girl growing up in Southern Lebanon, I was often taught that we would only have peace in the Middle East when all the Jews were killed and driven into the sea. I’ll never forget what I learned when I visited an Israeli hospital as a young girl, worried sick over injuries sustained by my mother when a mortar shell launched by Islamic terrorists hit our bomb shelter. As I looked around the hospital, I witnessed Jewish doctors actually treating terrorists that probably would’ve cut their throats had they not needed their help. The Israeli physicians and nurses treated everyone according to their injuries, not their religion. Had my mother been a Jew in an Arab hospital, she would’ve been thrown out to die, rather than saved. It was in this moment that I realized how appalling anti-Semitism can be. Right then and there, I realized that to hate anyone for their religious beliefs or their origin of birth is truly barbaric.

The same hatred which led Hitler to commit unthinkable genocide against innocent Jews still persists throughout the world and, tragically, here in the United States. Remarkably, despite being responsible for the most hate crimes, anti-Semitism seems to be one of the only forms of hatred and bigotry that is still tolerated by the mainstream media. It’s almost as if this hatred is seen as an ancient myth and in the most egregious circumstances, the mainstream press is actually propagating it.

Whether it’s CNN pundits repeating Hamas talking points when covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, or Nation of Islam’s favorite politician Keith Ellison getting a free pass on his anti-Semitism, or even anti-Semites like Linda Sarsour being held up as a virtuous symbol of diversity, the mainstream media simply does not view Jews as victims the way they do other groups.

Not surprisingly, soon after the deadliest anti-Semitic shooting in American history, the media blames, you guessed it, President Trump - arguably the most pro-Israel President in American history, who moved the U.S Embassy to Jerusalem despite media backlash, who also happens to have Jewish grandchildren born to a Jewish son-in-law working in his administration. Just when you think the media can’t go any lower both morally and intellectually, they manage to top themselves.

Not only is President Trump the most pro-Israel President in history, but the evil shooter who committed the massacre was vehemently anti-trump. In fact, the shooter once tweeted, “There is no #MAGA, as long as there is a k*** infestation.” An anti-Semitic shooter would only harbor such hatred toward President Trump because in addition to his heroic embassy move, President Trump cut off aid to terrorists of the Palestinian Authority, and has fought to dismantle the Obama administration’s Israeli death sentence - the disastrous Iran deal. Unlike our former "apologist-in-Chief," President Trump never hosted Islamic front groups at his doorstep, or referred to anti-Semitic attacks as “random” like Obama did.

President Trump never appeared onstage with Louis Farrakhan like Bill Clinton recently did, nor did he have an anti-Semite with terrorist ties like Linda Sarsour introduce him at a rally like Senator Kirsten Gillibrand recently did. Why? Because this President doesn’t aid and abet anti-Semitism the way the Democrat party does. Anti-Semitism shouldn’t have to be a right or left issue; it should be a human issue. 

Unfortunately, even things such as this have become politicized. The civilized world must band together in solidarity to ensure that people of all faiths can live in peace and harmony and that Jews are never persecuted and victimized by barbaric, murderous ideologies ever again. To allow anti-semitism to continue to exist unchecked in the 21st century destroys a piece of everyone’s humanity. There is simply no room for such hatred in the world.

Former NYPD Available for Interviews on Bomb Suspect Arrest

Federal authorities made an arrest on Friday in connection with the nationwide bombing campaign against outspoken critics of President Trump, a significant breakthrough in a case that has gripped the country in the days leading up to the midterm elections. A law enforcement official identified the suspect as Cesar Sayoc, Jr., 56, of Aventura, Fla, just north of Miami.

As a former Detective with the NYPD, Thomas Ruskin is available to discuss the arrest of Cesar Sayoc today for the recent bomb terrorist attack. He can discuss the investigation, the evidence and how the NYPD, JTTF and the FBI found him.

Thomas Ruskin is a highly decorated former New York City Police Detective Investigator. He was responsible for Crisis Management for the Mayor, Police Commissioner and Deputy Commissioners of Operations and Crime Control Strategies for New York City. He has been involved in cases that have received worldwide attention, including the 1993 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, the NYC subway system bombing, airline crashes, police shootings, hostage situations and major organized crime and narcotic cases.

The Real Roots of Campus Leftism
By Professor Warren Treadgold

The kind of leftism that began on campuses has now spread to the whole country, mostly through Democratic Party politics. This leftist doctrine, among other things, maintains that unsubstantiated or even obviously false charges are justified as long as they serve the interests of the supposedly oppressed and fight the supposed oppressors. I described it two years ago in my cover article, "The Roots of Campus Leftism," for The Weekly Standard. I think they need help from legislators and donors outside campuses, and I suggest in my book, The University We Need, the sort of legislation that might help, along with what I think would help most, the founding of a new university that rejects this leftist dogma and shows what a university should be.

Caravan Jihad?
By Robert Spencer

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, told reporters on Monday afternoon that Trump ‘absolutely’ had evidence to indicate there are Middle Easterners in the caravan. CNN informed the Leftist marks who still take it seriously that Trump is, as expected, all wrong and going off half-cocked yet again: “The President did not support his claim with any evidence." The evidence is actually abundantly clear; CNN just doesn’t want you to know it exists. The Daily Caller reported Monday that Univision correspondent Francisco Santa Anna stated: “Yesterday when we were traveling through Guatemala, we noticed people from El Salvador and even people from Bangladesh. Can you imagine what they had to do to get here? They infiltrated themselves in this caravan and tried to cross with the crowd. That would have benefited them greatly.” [more...]


Khashoggimania and Our Islamist Colluding Media
By Daniel Greenfield

While Jamal Khashoggi has often been misidentified as a Washington Post journalist, all he did for the radical leftist paper owned by Amazon’s CEO is write editorials promoting the Muslim Brotherhood agenda. The Muslim Brotherhood leader and former Bin Laden pal was never a journalist. The closest he came to it was acting as a terrorist propagandist in Afghanistan, glamorizing Osama bin Laden, on behalf of a man listed by the Treasury Department as one of “the world’s foremost terrorist financiers.” [more...]


Antifa Targets Horowitz Speech at Dartmouth

A student socialist group reached out to a local Antifa chapter indicating that they planned to target David Horowitz's event at Dartmouth College last night.  Horowitz’s talk, “Identity Politics and the Totalitarian Threat from the Left,” drew protests inside and outside the event along with several police and campus security officers. From the start of the event, which was organized by the College Republicans, student protesters expressed their displeasure with Horowitz. Some worked on their laptops with headphones, symbolically blocking out his words. Shortly into the talk, students sporadically stood up and displayed signs featuring messages opposing Horowitz’s views, such as “Trans Rights are Human Rights,” “ICE is the Gestapo,” “Black Lives Matter” and “From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go.” After the event, protesters hung signs outside the room including one that read, “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford” and another that quoted Martin Luther King Jr., saying, “A threat to justice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”


Trump Should Tackle Our Overvalued Dollar
By Michael Stumo

President Trump's decision to impose tariffs on subsidized imports from China has generated plenty of criticism from pundits and academics alike. But the tariffs, which are intended to boost U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, are already leading to increased production and job growth in the heartland. There's a looming trouble spot, however, because the U.S. dollar is significantly overvalued - and rising - in global markets. And that could end up negating some of the tariffs’ effectiveness. Here’s the problem: each day, global investors purchase massive amounts of U.S. securities and financial assets. This incoming capital benefits the financial industry but creates few jobs for everyday Americans. Worse, it has the unfortunate side effect of driving up the dollar’s value in global markets.

The Real Roots of Campus Leftism



In a recent FoxNews op-ed, Charlie Kirk says American universities are now 'mob' assembly lines. Kirk is absolutely right that the kind of leftism that began on campuses has now spread to the whole country, mostly through Democratic Party politics.  This leftist doctrine, among other things, maintains that unsubstantiated or even obviously false charges are justified as long as they serve the interests of the supposedly oppressed and fight the supposed oppressors.  I described it two years ago in my cover article, "The Roots of Campus Leftism," for The Weekly Standard.

But Kirk, in his article (and, as far as I can tell from the book he wrote with Donald Trump, Jr.) seems to have only one strategy for combating campus leftism, and that is to encourage isolated and marginalized conservative and moderate students to be more vocal.  This may make them feel a little better, but they aren't at all likely to be able to outshout the leftists, and they should be prepared to be vilified by their fellow students and professors, given poor grades, and possibly even disciplined by their administrators. 

That's why I think they need help from legislators and donors outside campuses, and I suggest in my book, The University We Need, the sort of legislation that might help, along with what I think would help most, the founding of a new university that rejects this leftist dogma and shows what a university should be.

Pelosi Goes Low for High Political Gain
By James Hirsen

Nancy Pelosi recently delivered the following message to a group of like-minded people in New York City: “I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it…” Whether she intended to provide such a window into her political soul is unknown. However, it was a profoundly significant revelation from the woman who is desperately seeking to be Speaker of the House once again. What Pelosi did in her unwitting confession is to telegraph just how low the Democrats were willing to stoop in their craven quest for power, so low that people who merely disagree with their socialist agenda may, as her characterization indicated, become expendable.

Feminists' Selective Outrage - Petty vs. Profound
By Karen Kataline

What can you say about pampered celebrities and liberals who take themselves and their political correctness so seriously? Compare their stories to Nadia Murad, a Yazidi human rights activist from Iraq and the author of the book “The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State” who was awarded the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize. At just 21 years old, Murad was kidnapped alongside an estimated 3,000 other Yazidi women and girls, traded as sex slaves from one ISIS fighter to another. She was forced to pray, dress up, and apply makeup in preparation for her rape, which was often committed by gangs. While Hollywood liberals lament their selective outrage, they are frighteningly silent about real-life atrocities that have been courageously survived by young women like Nadia Murad. [more...]

President Trump's War on Waste
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of “Operation Drain the Swamp”

"We're going to cut spending, absolutely. It's not as tough as you think, there's a lot of fat in there," says President Trump. Last week, at the White House, the president pledged to cut spending and asked his agency heads to cut five percent of their budgets. Trump's action comes just 24 days after we published an open letter to the president in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today. In the letter, we urged President Trump to wage a war on waste using a three-pronged attack: 1. Post all White House expenditures online; 2. Cut agency waste (five percent of their budgets); 3. Report progress to the public. It looks like the president is following our plan. [more...]


The Framers Feared the Mob
By Lowell Ponte

Today’s uncivil Democrats show why the Framers of our Constitution feared the mob. As individuals, most of us are fair and practical; but in emotional groups, people can sometimes easily become a terrorist mob. We have a herd inside our heads, a mass mind evident in the socialist rallies of 1930s Germany or today’s Democrat socialist street gangs. Unchecked, democracy can quickly turn to French Revolutionary violence. This is why our Framers created institutions to protect our republic from “mobocracy.” Delusional zealot Hillary Clinton still says she should be president because she “won the popular vote” in 2016 – which is like saying she scored more “runs” even though she and winner Donald Trump had agreed that they were playing football, where scoring is via touchdowns and field goals, not “runs.” But even here, Democrats and other leftists are plotting to circumvent the Constitution and steal future elections.

Midterm Election Predictions
By John LeBoutillier

With two weeks to go before the midterm elections, here are some predictions. It seems likely that the Democrats will win back control of the House - probably by 25 to 35 seats. Despite what the pundits are saying, the Senate is not out of reach, either. The post-Kavanaugh GOP sugar high is wearing off, which is why Trump has pivoted to trying to scare his base with comments about the “caravan” of migrants making its way to the southern U.S. border. It still might come down to Arizona and Nevada. If the Democrats win both, along with Tennessee, they conceivably could take over the Senate. [more...]
