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...]
