Leftism is Destructive to Mental Health
By Karen Kataline

Laws which disarm victims in an ever more dangerous environment, seem to be exactly what Democrats are after. Republicans have shown themselves willing to roll over to avoid the political heat of the moment. Consequently, everyday citizens are again blamed and punished for the criminal behavior of a few. That collectivist ideology has been pushed by the Left for a long time. How I wish I could tell President Trump to put on the brakes in supporting policies in the heat of grief and emotion. It remains to be seen whether his recent speech will yield fundamental policy changes but I for one, hope not. Not only do sweeping, federal laws do little to address the complex issues in this growing problem but the only people who stand to lose are law-abiding citizens. [more...]

Baltimore's 30,000 Public Employees Cost Taxpayers $2 Billion But Can't Save Their Own City
By Adam Andrzejewski, Author of Operation Drain the Swamp

Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com investigated just how much taxpayer money flows into the Baltimore bureaucracy at every level: federal, state, and local. We found the city drowning in taxpayer dollars. Our audit shows that $1.1 billion in grants and direct payments (subsidies and assistance) flowed into Baltimore city agencies and other city-based entities including non-profit organizations, corporations, and colleges during the last four years (FY2015-FY2018). That’s the equivalent of nearly $7,000 in federal aid per family of four living in Baltimore during this period. [more...]

Judge Delivers a Big Victory for Affordable Health Care
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Just over two weeks ago, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon upheld a Trump administration rule that expands access to short-term, limited duration health plans. The ruling represents a major victory for those in need of affordable health coverage. But the plaintiffs are appealing the ruling. And many states have already implemented rules restricting, if not banning outright, short-term plans. They're more interested in protecting Obamacare than in ensuring that consumers have access to affordable health coverage. [more...]

Mass Shootings are Not a "White Man's" Problem
By Daniel Greenfield

Around the same time that the media was focused on the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, 60 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend. 24 of those people were shot in four hours. Baltimore reached its 200th murder victim of the year during its “Ceasefire Weekend." 4 people were killed in 4 days in Kansas City. 6 men were shot in Philly during the filming of a rap video. This tide of violence has received less media coverage because it challenges the false claim that, as a CNN op-ed once put it, mass shootings are a “white man’s problem.” "I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country," Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed on Al Jazeera. "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men," Don Lemon had previously claimed on CNN. [more...]

Shooting Stars
By Lowell Ponte

A madman pens a manifesto, travels to El Paso, with a rifle murders at least 20 and wounds many others at a shopping mall, then surrenders, apparently intending to become a famous martyr, a shooting star. Will we let this madman – and the politicians eager to exploit what he did – kill America’s future as a free nation? History sometimes turns on singular events. We need a careful, prayerful national perspective on which events should change history. [more...]

The Agenda-Laden Reboot of "Party of Five"
By James Hirsen

That Hollywood would be walking hand-in-hand with the Democratic Party in an effort to shape the mindset of the culture-at-large is nothing new. However, the idea that entertainment products would have morphed into super-sized mallets that would then be used to hammer left-wing agendas into folks’ heads is. The routine insertion into entertainment content by Hollywood of “woke” themes and characters is clearly illustrated in a highly altered supposed reboot of a previous 1990’s television show, “Party of Five.” [more...]
