Why the Schumer Shutdown?
By Lowell Ponte
We all know why Democrats were eager to use a government shutdown to force a path to citizenship for Latino aliens called “Dreamers.” Now up to 36 years of age and numbering up to 3.6 million, these potential voters are inclined to vote two-to-one in favor of Democrats who have thus far refused to negotiate whether Dreamers, if made legal immigrants, can sponsor their parents and other relatives as legal residents and, soon thereafter, voting U.S. citizens... moving them ahead of other applicants.

We Must Teach Students the Importance of Free Speech
By Tudor Dixon, CEO of Lumen Student News providing unbiased news to America’s middle and high school students
Every week we hear more calls to silence speakers, essentially moving to kill one of the freedoms our founding fathers fought to secure. Americans need to understand that undermining the First Amendment is a slippery slope. Too often, university administrators are caving to - or creating - a “heckler’s veto” - a tactic by opponents of free speech to drown out the voices of others who have differing opinions.

Text messages between two FBI employees (who were also romantically involved) - Peter Strzok and Lisa Page - during the 2016 presidential election, were revealed Monday by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. There were 50,000 text messages between the two FBI employees. Plus, apparently another batch of messages were missing during a 5-month period from December 14, 2016 to May 17, 2017. These text messages, rather than clearing up issues, raise additional issues about the potential involvement of the FBI and the Obama administration in reacting to the election of Trump. What new issues do these FBI text messages raise? [more...]

Among the few givens in the unfolding drama of alleged Russia-Trump collusion is that former MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele wrote the Donald Trump-Russia dossier, alternately known as the "Steele Dossier." This is the notorious document that purports to detail "Republican candidate Donald Trump's activities in Russia and compromising relationship with the Kremlin." The above quote is from the subhead of the document, titled "Company Intelligence Report 2016/080," yet the same subhead hints at a disturbing pattern evident throughout the document: it appears to be written by someone whose native language is something other than English.
