Corsi Vindicated with the Release of the Mueller Report



I feel vindicated since I rejected Robert Mueller’s plea deal because I felt it was fraudulent. The one count Mueller wanted me to plea to was my first day testimony when I had not yet downloaded my 2016 e-mails. I wanted to give his prosecutors my computers voluntarily in the condo where they were located since the last day I used them. My "crime?"  I had forgotten key e-mails. 

Mueller’s prosecutors allowed me to go home for 10 days to load and review the 2016 e-mails. I returned and amended my testimony. The charge Mueller wanted me to plea was the first day’s testimony, when I made memory mistakes. I never knowingly gave Mueller testimony I knew to be false on a material matter because I intended to deceive them. I gave 40 hours of voluntary testimony always intending to tell the truth, admitting my memory of e-mails and conversations from 2016 was not good. 

Mueller’s prosecutors blew up my testimony because they couldn’t believe that in July, 2016 I figured out Assange had Podesta e-mails he planned to make public in October 2016. 

That Mueller did not indict me proves they wanted me to plead guilty to someone Mueller could not prove was a “lie.”  I never had any contact with Assange directly or indirectly. Mueller’s prosecutors were convinced I was the link between Roger Stone and Assange.  That never happened and the prosecutors couldn’t prove otherwise. 

I wrote Silent No More: How I Became a Political Prisoner of Mueller's "Witch Hunt" to give a firsthand account of what I consider to have been abusive questioning, especially in the last 20 hours when I was honestly trying to see if there might have been anyone who could have connected me to Assange. The FBI visited or otherwise questioned virtually everyone I contacted in 2016 and 2017. In the end, I knew I could not stand before a federal judge and swear under oath that I committed a crime I know I did not commit. 

My wife woke up one morning while I was struggling over the plea deal and told me she would rather visit me in prison the rest of my life than have me be a different person than the man she married. I would not lie if that was what it took to keep me out of prison. That was a critical moment in my decision to resist Mueller. 

Silent No More documents the abuse I suffered and is the background for the federal civil suit I filed in U.S. District Court in D.C. I wrote the book because I wanted people to understand the Kafka-like torture Mueller has put me and my family through for the past seven months. This book details the psychological torment I underwent because of the attempts by the prosecutors to break me.

This is not justice in America. Nobody in this country should ever again be forced to experience what I went through - prosecutorial abuse of power I believe was criminal in nature. I did nothing wrong and the prosecutors made it clear they hated me for my books, going back to co-authoring UNFIT FOR COMMAND in 2004. [more...] Watch Dr. Corsi on FNC.

The Case for Jexodus

By Daniel Greenfield

Zionism has always appealed to two kinds of Jews: those who are running to it and those who are running away from something. Jexodus, meaning a Jewish exit from under the shadow of the donkey, also has those who are running away from something, usually anti-Semitism, and those who are running toward something, a better vision for the country, for their community and for their families. The negative Jexodus will be the aftermath of a radicalization that splits the Democrats, as it did Labour in the UK along dividing lines of militant socialism, Islamism, and anti-Semitism. These three ‘isms’ will split Jewish Democrats alone those same lines leaving the radicals on the inside and moderates outside. Those Jews who remain will be required to prove their loyalty by denouncing Jews and Israel. These demands will be put forward in the stridently anti-Semitic tones commonplace on the fringes of the Left. [more...]

The New Zealand Morality Play
By David Horowitz

My new book, Dark Agenda is a concise, chilling book brimming with evidence that links numerous cultural depredations to one overriding theme: The left's attack on Christian America. If the horrific massacre of 49 Muslims at prayer in two New Zealand mosques shows us anything, it is how askew the moral universe has become since the attacks of 9/11. Since that date, Muslim fanatics have carried out more than 34,000 deadly terror attacks against “infidels” (i.e., people who do not share their faith), murdering – often by the most barbaric methods – hundreds of thousands of Christian men, women and children merely because they are Christians. Yet the world of progressive moralizing seems not to notice these casualties or to reflect on the consequences of the war that Muslims have initiated and continue to prosecute. Virtually the same day as the New Zealand bloodbath, Muslim militants entered a church in the Philippines and mowed down 20 Christians. That same week Muslims in Nigeria slaughtered 85 evangelical Christians – for being Christians – an atrocity that received little attention in the West. [more...]


College Admission Scandals Imitate TV Scripts
By James Hirsen

The admissions scandal that recently hit some of the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities has resulted in the largest prosecution of an alleged scheme to influence higher education admission decisions made at top tier institutions. The ongoing investigation is named “Operation Varsity Blues,” a title that was also used for a 1999 cult movie. “Varsity Blues” is best known for a scene in which the quarterback son shouts to his football obsessed father the following words: “I don’t want your life!” When prosecutors and investigators used the title of a movie as a name for their investigation, they may not have fully realized the bizarre “life imitates art” connections, which the facts presented with respect to the two most famous defendants involved in the case, actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin. [more...]


How to Invest When Politics Goes Schizophrenic
By Lowell Ponte

For most of America’s history, we have been governed by two political parties of one mind. Both Republicans and Democrats were mostly practical, centrist and pro-capitalist. Even liberals eager to tax business were careful not to kill the goose that laid the golden eggs of jobs and prosperity. With the 2018 election, this secure political environment for investors has changed. In our newly schizoid politics and economics, one of America’s two parties is now largely controlled by self-described socialists who hate the free market and want to destroy it. History is again up for grabs in class warfare, and every future election will be Russian roulette, with the fate of American free enterprise hanging on whether capitalist or anti-capitalist politicians win. How long can our nation, divided against itself, continue to stand? [more...] Get the report: Protecting Your Wealth in Today's America


Leftists See Bigotry Everywhere... Except Where it Actually is
By Karen Kataline

It is the rare Republican today who hasn’t been called a racist or a bigot, particularly if he or she is running for office. From candidates for city council to presidential hopefuls, Republicans across the nation are perpetually put on the defensive, as if they have to prove that they're not racists. This has been the real goal of Democrats, and it has worked like a charm. But in reality, the left is guilty of precisely the same sins they falsely accuse Republicans of perpetrating. The left has worked so hard at its agenda of identity politics, and has stereotyped everyone according to various groupings, that when it’s time to admonish one person in a specific case, the leftists fear the very behavior that they themselves planted – that everyone belonging to that group will revolt as the “victims” they’ve been taught to be. [more...]


Americans Like 'Medicare for All'... Until They Realize What's in It
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Fifty-six percent of Americans want to establish 'Medicare for All,' according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll. A Reuters survey last August found even stronger support, with 70 percent of Americans backing single-payer. With favorability numbers like those, it's no surprise that Democrats angling for the presidency in 2020 are campaigning on single-payer. So, is America just a presidential election away from single-payer health care - a progressive goal since the Truman administration? Not quite. Polling shows that Americans don't understand what 'Medicare for All' entails. Only 13 percent say they've heard a lot about the plan, according to a study from NORC at the University of Chicago.

Rampant, Flagrant Vote Manipulation to Tilt the Nation Leftward
By Lowell Ponte

“It’s a power grab for the American people,” said Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, a progressive Caucus member who last week helped ram through House passage of H.R. 1, the Democratic Party’s nearly 700-page “voter reform” act. “What kind of government would cancel the vote of its own citizens,” asked Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), “and replace it with non-citizens?” One of 29 Republican amendments Democrats slapped aside would have condemned voting by illegal aliens. H.R. 1 instead encourages illegal aliens to vote wherever permitted in state and local elections, such as in sanctuary city San Francisco. Local elections are where future members of Congress develop their name identification, contributors and political skills. [more...]


Superficial, Pretentious Hollywood Hypocrites
By Karen Kataline

The unfolding college admission scandal has ensnared a few Hollywood celebrities. It shouldn’t much of a surprise that celebrities are so concerned about their kids appearing to be accomplished that they don’t care whether they actually are. Some have made the point that these parents didn’t do their kids any favors... but that assumes that it was ever about their kids. The need to maintain the appearance of perfection and superiority is about themselves; their kids are merely an extension of them. The only surprise in this story is that these celebrities have been exposed and are being held accountable. It probably won’t be long before Hollywood hypocrites start blaming Donald Trump for it all. In this case, they might be partially be right: the era of Trump continues to expose the “phony” in some of our most pretentious people and institutions. [more...]


Why the Democrats Won't Take on Anti-Semitism
By Daniel Greenfield

Every few weeks, some political or national figure demands a national conversation about race. What does a conversation about race mean? Invariably, an indictment of the fundamental unfairness of our country, the historical roots of racism in white supremacy, and the national guilt of white people. We don’t have national conversations about anti-Semitism because the problem can’t be narrowed down to an easily blamed demographic. The Democrats invariably try to blame anti-Semitism on the usual suspects - white male Republicans living more than two hundred miles from a Starbucks; but the largest toll of violent anti-Semitic attacks tend to fall on New York City’s black neighborhoods. [more...]


Medicare Expansion Would Make Socialized Health Insurance Inevitable
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Several lawmakers want to pull more people into Medicare. This would hurt anyone with private insurance, and it would inevitably lead to single-payer, government funded healthcare, which would deprive people of any choice over their healthcare. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., recently introduced S.470, a bill that would let any citizen or permanent resident between the ages of 50 and 64 buy into Medicare. It received broad support from her Democratic colleagues. [more...]


Bad Manners Equals Bad Politics
By Kerry Lutz

The Oxford dictionary defines manners as, “Polite or well-bred social behavior.” America should be mourning the death of manners and common courtesy. Once upon a time, manners were taught and ingrained in schools and at home. Discipline would often be imposed for serious transgressions. Unfortunately, successive generations have downgraded the importance and the need for them. Why are manners/common courtesies so important? The answer lies in what should be our collective desire for the attainment of a civil society. [more...]

David Horowitz Exposes the Left's 'Dark Agenda'

Dark Agenda is a concise, chilling book brimming with evidence that links numerous cultural depredations to one overriding theme: The left's attack on Christian America's founding in the name of "cultural Marxism." In his new book, David Horowitz writes about the spiteful governmental coercion that's been employed to force The Little Sisters of the Poor, among others, to violate their consciences thanks to Obamacare abortion provisions. And the Supreme Court being the giant secular lever employed by leftists to fundamentally transform "Christian America" - these politically-motivated "lawyers," as Horowitz contemptuously labels the high court, began their anti-Christian, anti-Constitutional mission with the expulsion of prayer from public schools in 1962. He writes, "A nation divided by such fundamental ideas - individual freedom on one side and group identity on the other - cannot long endure, any more than could a nation that was half slave and half free. The urgency that drew the religious right into politics fifty years ago is now an urgency of the nation itself." [more...]


Democrats Creep from Collusion to Obstruction
By James Hirsen

In a cart-before-the-horse scenario, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stated with certainty that he believes President Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice. Nadler declared this as his committee initiated an investigation to ostensibly determine whether or not the president obstructed justice. Nadler’s panel sent out 81 document requests and subpoenas as part of an unprecedented partisan probe launched at a time it is widely believed that Special Counsel Mueller is wrapping up his investigation and issuing a report. Nadler, who has evidently come to a conclusion prior to his committee’s investigatory work, has also moved past the Mueller report, apparently amid concerns that it will contain no evidence of the supposed Russian collusion, which the Democrat Party and its allies in the left-leaning media have been obsessing over for more than two years.

Red Flag Laws - Crazy Until Proven Sane
By Karen Kataline

The “Red Flag” bill is among a bevy of egregious bills being hoisted on the citizens of Colorado and being pushed nationally. Proponents claim that this is a necessary measure to take guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. With lavish funding from Michael Bloomberg, it is really a deceitful scheme to circumvent our constitutionally protected rights and desensitize citizens to gun confiscation without due process. Were anti-gun advocates required to stay within the boundaries of criminal justice, the accused would at least have rights. [more...]


Opioid Maker Purdue Bankruptcy
By Michelle Seiler-Tucker

Purdue Pharma LP, the maker of the pain narcotic OxyContin, is currently evaluating bankruptcy filing options. This follows a potential two-thousand lawsuits against the company due to their contribution in the opioid crisis extending across the United States. Purdue Pharma is owned and operated by the Sackler family, and this potential move shows the sheer amount of pressure they are currently enduring. Mounting litigation is accusing Purdue of misleading doctors, patients, and staff about the potential hazards and risks associated with prolonged use of prescription opioids. [more...]

U.S. Goods Trade Deficit Hits Major New Record in 2018

U.S. Goods Trade Deficit Hits Major New Record in 2018
By Michael Stumo

Overvalued dollar drives record U.S. deficits with China, rest of world

Annual data released yesterday by the Commerce Department shows that America’s overall trade balance continued to worsen in 2018. Not only did the United States record its highest-ever global trade deficit in goods - at $891.3 billion - but the annual goods deficit with China soared to a stunning new record of $419.2 billion. The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) attributes the rising trade debt to an increasingly noncompetitive dollar, a fast-growing U.S. economy, and a surge in imports intended to beat last year’s tariffs. And all of it comes even as President Trump’s trade measures begin to impact overall U.S. trade flows. [more...]


U.S. Trade Deficit Hits $621B in 2018; Goods Deficit & China Deficit Hit New Records
By Jeff Ferry, CPA Chief Economist

Data published yesterday by the Department of Commerce show that U.S. trade figures continued to worsen in 2018, in response to the strengthening dollar, a fast-growing U.S. economy, and a surge in imports to front-run last year’s tariffs, while President Trump’s trade measures are taking time to have an impact on the trade data. The trade deficit in December leapt 18.8 percent to reach $59.8 billion. That meant that 2018 ended up with a full-year deficit of $621 billion, up 12.5 percent on the previous year and our worst trade deficit in a decade. Those figures are bad, but even more worrying is the goods balance. Our trade deficit in goods for 2018 came in at $891.3 billion, up 10.4 percent from 2017 and the worst goods deficit in U.S. and world history. Our goods deficit is now larger than the entire GDP of 163 nations in the UN. [more...]

Rep. Ilhan Omar's are Not Just Like Any Other Racial Slurs



The latest anti-Semitic remarks of Rep. Ilhan Omar are not just like any other racial slurs. To say that is to deny history. In my new book, The Secret Life: A Book of Wisdom, I write that Maimonides taught that the lessons of history, and the truths we learn from it, must always be kept at the forefront of our minds, and guide our present course. Truth must be accepted from whatever source it comes, and when history has taught us such a precise lesson - such as about what lies about Jewish control and disloyalty can lead to - we must be most vigilant.

There is a long, brutal past to anti-Semitism, which has seen Jews tortured, raped, mass-exterminated, and their bodies burnt in ovens, all accompanied by such lies and stereotypes. About 80 years ago, Nazi Germany spread propaganda about Jews, using stereotypes with themes that included those of Rep. Omar’s, to paint Jews as disloyal and supposedly in control of society through their money, fomenting hatred. Jews were sent by the millions into gas chambers and exterminated, fueled by the propaganda of the Nazi death machine.

Not dealing with anti-Semitism in light of its unique history would be like ignoring the history of slavery in our country when dealing with racism and prejudice against African-Americans. Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. This may be why many of these same people, seemingly unconcerned about rising anti-Semitism, are also promoting Socialism here. They may be unaware of history’s lessons and of the devastation that Socialism has wreaked on societies in the past century, turning many from rich to poor, from democracy to dictatorship. To those unconcerned about rising anti-Semitism, or, for that matter, those who would lead America into a future of socialist poverty - are they not aware of history?

John Wayne Becomes Social Media's Latest Target
By James Hirsen

Social media trolls recently honed in on a new target of attack. The same agitators that consistently seek to tear down statues, ban books, and silence dissidents have now dug up an interview with legendary actor John Wayne, which appeared in a May 1971 issue of Playboy Magazine. Even though Wayne is no longer with us and thus unable to defend himself, the transforming America crowd who are attempting to destroy Wayne’s reputation will not be satisfied until the movie icon’s legacy has been completely redacted from Hollywood history. [more...]


We Finally Have a President Willing to Put Everything on the Line
By Karen Kataline

Whether or not we like to admit it, we are in a full-blown culture war. Every tradition we hold dear is under attack. Suddenly, we are expected to adapt unquestioningly to bizarre cultural changes like the celebration of "gender fluidity," abortion, infanticide, and 11-year-old drag queens. It is assumed as a given that we must force girls to use “non-gender specific” bathrooms, to reward victimhood, and to demonize "toxic masculinity" and law-abiding citizens. And intense pressure is on for us to embrace the destruction of our borders - and to forfeit our right of self-defense. Although it is to our benefit that the Left's destructive agenda is finally out in the open, we haven’t had a Republican president who has been equipped to defeat this festering threat in more than three decades. That is, until now. [more...]


Will Desperate Democrats Destroy Democracy?
By Lowell Ponte

Why do Democrats seem so desperate, so frantic to win by any means - fair or foul? The likely reason is they have seen polls the liberal media have scarcely reported suggesting President Trump could be headed for a huge win in the 2020 elections. Last week, we noted historian Victor Davis Hanson’s analysis of polls showing that President Trump could win 20 percent or more of the African-American vote. Democrats depend on getting 90 to 95 percent of captive black voters. Hillary Clinton lost the presidency in 2016 because she carried only 88 percent of African-American votes. If Mr. Trump wins 20 percent of black voters – as now appears likely – then the Democratic Party is doomed. [more...]


Why Have President Trump's Regulatory Agencies Stockpiled So Much Firepower?
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

Why does the IRS need five million rounds of ammunition? Why did Health and Human Services purchase four million rounds over the last eight years and stockpile five submachine guns? And what about the 800,000 rounds purchased by the Social Security Administration? These questions we’ve raised before have newfound urgency in light of recent events. In December, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) published a report to congress quantifying purchases of $1.5 billion in firearms, ammunition, and tactical equipment by federal agencies outside of the Pentagon.

The New York Health Act Just Became Even More Expensive
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

New York's progressive lawmakers are getting more ambitious with their plans for socialized medicine. Assemblyman Richard Gottfried and Senator Ricardo Rivera, the chief sponsors of the New York Health Act, just expanded their proposal for installing the state government as the sole payer for health care in New York and outlaw private coverage. The new version of their bill would cover long-term care and home-support services - in addition to hospital stays and procedures, drugs, doctors' appointments, and virtually every other medical service short of cosmetic surgery. But the problem with the bill was never a dearth of benefits. It's that the plan would impose crippling new taxes on New Yorkers to pay for it while reducing the quality of health care statewide.

Contradictions Abound in Cohen Hearing as Corrupt Inquisitors "Seek Truth"

By Karen Kataline

While Donald Trump was in North Vietnam doing the job that former U.S. Presidents refused to do, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee were doing children’s theater in Washington, D.C. They trashed Trump like there was no tomorrow just as he was meeting face to face with Kim Jong Un to do all he could to prevent a nuclear war to make sure there is a tomorrow. The contrast of the petty vs. the profound was dumbfounding. The Michael Cohen hearing was like a bad car wreck; I couldn’t look away. In a real trial, just about every one of these questioners would have had to recuse themselves. As the hearing wore on, the contradictions were laughable. Then, they became entertaining.

Cohen made sure to thank Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.  His closing statement sounded like a political speech written not surprisingly by Lannie Davis. This is where he chose to mention that he disagrees with Trump’s immigration policies and that’s one of the reasons no one should support him. That is Trump’s real crime: he doesn’t kowtow to the corruption in Washington, D.C. but continues to expose it. [more highlights...]

President Trump Should Stay Strong on China
By Michael Stumo

We urge President Trump to continue his strategy of strength and leverage in the U.S. trade and geopolitical relationship with China. We know from the mistakes of past presidents that previous promises by Beijing were not kept. The President’s tariffs are working to rebuild the U.S. economy, achieve leverage, and dampen China’s ability to erode America’s economic, military, and geopolitical strength. Fundamental change is needed. China must stop the dozens of acts and practices it uses to steal and otherwise wrongly acquire critical technology from our government and private companies. Our bilateral trade relationship must be rebalanced across a broad array of industries beyond commodities and semiconductors. China must quickly and convincingly shift from excessive reliance on the U.S. consumer market for its growth to greater reliance on domestic consumption. Enforcement mechanisms must be clear, strong, and quick. China must agree not to retaliate if enforcement of any agreement occurs. [more...]


Trouble Follows Oscars
By James Hirsen

This year’s Oscars should have been a win for Hollywood, but trouble still follows Hollywood’s once prestigious annual event. According to preliminary figures, ratings for the 91st Academy Awards were up slightly. Unfortunately, it is not enough to assuage anxiety over the awards show’s downward trend. The second host-less Academy Awards ended up having the second-smallest audience in Oscar history. Audience size for this year was 28 million, according to the calculations of The Hollywood Reporter. This figure is up about 6 percent over the disastrous Kimmel-hosted show’s preliminary ratings of the previous year. Viewer-ship size was based on a 20.1 rating/33 share in metered-market households. [more...]


Hollywood is Oblivious
By Karen Kataline

There’s a reason they call it “La La Land.” There, in the world of dreamland, there is a “community” of actors and show biz types who live in a world of fantasy - and it’s not just when the cameras are rolling. But why? Could it be for the same reasons that so many are addicted to drugs, have failed marriages and commit suicide? Eventually, they can’t handle the cognitive dissonance of living a life of rage and anger while they enjoy a level of wealth, fame and privilege few of us could ever imagine.  We’re not jealous of them, but some seem to be jealous of us for being “normal.” In some cases, that jealousy turns into contempt, as we are reminders of their own hypocrisy. I guess that’s why they believe they must continuously lecture us about the immorality of walls and the forced redistribution of our meager assets as compared to themselves, while they extol the virtues of “income inequality.” [more...]


Democrats Propose Trillions in Reparations for Blacks
By Lowell Ponte

President Obama refused to endorse the controversial idea of giving African-Americans trillions of dollars to atone for the evils of slavery. So did Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and most of today’s dozens of Democratic presidential aspirants. But days ago, three Democratic candidates – Sen. Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts, Sen. Kamala Harris from California and former Obama cabinet member Julian Castro of Texas – embraced giving blacks a stratospheric fortune in reparations. Others soon may follow. For Warren and Harris, this latest “ginormous” giveaway was their way to blast past rivals in the Democrats’ mad race to win the radical left’s checkered black-and-red flag of victory. For Castro, it was his chance as an almost-unknown Latino to buy the attention and votes of African-Americans. [more...]


Job Creation from a Competitive Dollar Up to 6.7 Million
By Jeff Ferry

We used a standard econometric model to, for the first time, quantify the amount of dollar adjustment needed to end the U.S. trade deficit over a reasonable period of time as well as the job creation and economic growth results. The paper explains the capital flow dynamics that cause the dollar to be persistently overvalued and how it contributes to global imbalances that are a risk to international growth. The authors then present how different magnitudes of dollar adjustment impact exports and imports before determining an optimal adjustment to balance trade in six years. The impact on the domestic economy is significant job creation, up to 6.7 million additional jobs over baseline expectations from 2020 to 2024. [more...]

Competitive U.S. Dollar Could Produce Over Six Million New Jobs
By Jeff Ferry

A new study of the U.S. economy shows that the U.S. dollar is overvalued by 27 percent. Adjusting the dollar to a competitive level would yield large benefits to the economy, including an estimated $1 trillion in additional GDP and up to an additional 6.7 million new jobs over six years. The study, entitled Quantifying Economic Growth and Job Creation from a Competitive Dollar, uses the REMI economic model of the U.S. economy to capture the impact of exchange rates on imports, exports, and the domestic economy. When the dollar moves down by 27 percent over six years, export volumes rise, which enables domestic industries - including manufacturing, mining, and agriculture - to grow at higher rates. The United States is the only major world economy that has suffered from an overvalued currency and persistent trade deficits for more than 40 years. [more...]


Washington is Missing a Chance to Cut the Federal Workforce
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

Both parties have adopted a mantra of protecting federal employees during the recent government shutdown and ongoing showdown over immigration. Last month, all House Democrats and 29 Republicans voted to increase federal pay by 2.6 percent. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said the effort was about “treating federal employees with the respect they deserve and compensating them for the financial stress the Trump-McConnell shutdown has inflicted on them.” But the reality is federal employees are hardly victims. While it’s true that many are hard-working patriots who could earn significantly more in the private sector, many are not. Still, politicians reflexively defend the status quo out of fear of a political backlash. Their goal is not to protect federal employees or taxpayers, but themselves. [more...]


Dem 2020 Hopefuls - All Roads Lead to Single-Payer
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

The Democratic Party's presidential hopefuls are diverse in all ways but one - their stance on healthcare reform. The front-runners want to eliminate private insurance and put everyone on a government-run plan. But that's not something they've been enthusiastic about revealing to voters. Their legislative records tell a different story. The question is not whether Democrats favor eliminating private insurance - it's how fast they'll do it. [more...]

The Answer to Our Ballooning Federal Deficit
By Jeffrey Katz

In my new book, The Secret Life: A Book of Wisdom, I write that the highest level of charity is to teach a person to fish, not to hand out fish: the common-sense principle of making people self-sufficient. So, why, in America, with an economy now producing millions of new jobs, do we not have a strong bipartisan federal policy promoting a massive federal jobs retraining program? The answer to our ballooning federal deficit is increased productivity, by getting people off government assistance and into productive, good jobs. So, why is this not happening? Sadly, it is because there is no coalition or consensus in our country for a national policy of putting our citizens back to work through retraining. [more...]


President Trump's Emergency Declaration Will Survive Lawsuits
By James Hirsen

According to Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, President Donald Trump possesses the lawful authority to use emergency powers to fund and build a barrier at the border. In response to an interview question about the legality of the president’s recent emergency declaration, Smith told the host of ABC’s “This Week” George Stephanopoulos, “Unfortunately, the short answer is yes. There is a provision in law that says the president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times...” The congressman added that the president would be the recipient of a court challenge. [more...]


Why are False Accusers So Often Leftists?
By Karen Kataline

The story of Jussie Smollett is just the latest high-profile example of a flurry of manufactured hate crimes since the election of a president which the Left has still refused to accept. This case ought to be the tipping point; however, to make it crystal clear that the Left’s broken record that America is full of racists, bigots and homophobes, is complete bunk. If their accusations are so true, why do they have to keep fabricating the evidence? We have watched repeatedly as “agents provocateurs” concoct crimes of racial injustice and bigotry. In reality, they are the perpetrator of lies and propaganda that are used to viciously frame and defame innocent people. [more...]


The 2020 Election - A Choice, Not an Echo
By Lowell Ponte

Today, we have a choice, not an echo, thanks both to President Trump and to the Saul Alinskyite radical leftwing transformation of the Democratic Party, which has sharply polarized voter choices. Consider just a few of the hundreds of today’s right-left polarizations. The voter choice in 2020: Trump’s border wall, or Democrats in effect promising no border at all. Democrats openly aim to transform America by erasing its past, present, future, Constitutional rights and laws, borders, entrepreneurs, private property and free enterprise. [more...]


Why Jussie Smollett Lied
By Jamie Glazov

To gain power, totalitarian movements always portray themselves as victims. And while they are in the process of abusing, they cry in front of the world posing as the abused. They stage “hate-crime” attacks against themselves because hate crimes are their political and cultural capital. When those hate-crimes don’t exist, they must be invented. We are witnessing precisely this phenomenon at this very moment in regard to the myriad of hoax “hate-crimes” that anti-Trump forces are manufacturing out of thin air and blaming on Trump supporters. The media are bolstering the entire hallucination process, with CNN leading the way. [more...]
