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.

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...]
