Hey Comey: "Democrats Don't Want Your Endorsement" -- Ex-Clinton Spokesman

By Rick Pearcey • July 18, 2018, 12:17 PM

Diana Stancy Correll reports at the Washington Examiner:

Brian Fallon, the press secretary for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, flatly rejected former FBI Director James Comey to support Democrats in the 2018 midterm election.

In a terse tweet early Wednesday morning, Fallon said Democrats want nothing to do with him.

"Democrats don't want your endorsement, but thanks," Fallon, now executive director of Demand Justice, tweeted.

7 Times America Kept Talking to Russia After Severe Provocations

By Rick Pearcey • July 17, 2018, 07:49 AM

John Hayward writes at Breitbart:

President Donald Trump has been roundly criticized for holding a diplomatic summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin after Russia's ostensibly unforgivable "attack on democracy" by "hacking" the 2016 election.

Leaving aside that critics hysterically overestimated Russia's influence on the election and very little actual "hacking" was involved, the simple fact is that American presidents of both parties have conducted diplomacy with Russia after far worse and more obvious provocations.

Soros Group Connected to Massive "Stop Kavanaugh" Effort

By Rick Pearcey • July 16, 2018, 09:26 AM

Kevin Daley and Andrew Kerr report at the Daily Caller:

A new political advocacy group that vowed to put $5 million behind an effort to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court has significant ties to the liberal financier George Soros.

A Daily Caller News Foundation review has found that the group's primary financial supporter is a nonprofit to whom Soros has given millions.

The group, Demand Justice (DJ), is organized and financed by a 501(c)(4) called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which collected some $2.2 million in contributions from the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), one of Soros' primary donation vehicles, between 2012 and 2016.

Trump Frees Europe From Angry Socialist Babies

By Rick Pearcey • July 13, 2018, 10:22 AM

From Daniel Greenfield, writing at Frontpagemag.com:

People power has largely died out in Europe. It has come to mean lefty toffs pretending to be working class while protesting for higher fees on the middle class to fund bigger subsidies for themselves. It's luvvies pushing fake social media campaigns for more diversity on the BBC. It's Jeremy Corbyn dazedly stumbling between terrorist rallies and student radical meetings. But that's not people power. Trump is. It's not powerful lefties screaming marketing slogans. It's people taking on their power. And that is what terrifies European elites.

The EU is beleaguered by a tide of populists rising against the perfect storm of mass migration and Eurocratic rule. Some of these populists are phonies, frauds and hacks. But others are real. In times past, it was fashionable to dismiss them as irrelevant cranks. But now one is the leader of the free world. As Trump continues his odyssey, his presence gives hope to the oppressed citizens of Europe.

"Trump haters in the UK and America aren't protesting a man, but an idea," Greenfield continues. "The Beast, the massive presidential limo, rolling through the streets has a new master. And the right side of history no longer points its compass needle to multinational organizations and useless university degrees.

"As Marine One flies over Britain while red-faced reds scream futile insults at the sky, carve obscene crop circles, and beat pots and pans in the street, they know that an unstoppable wave of change is breaking over Britain."

Greenfield concludes: "The angry babies will follow Trump across Britain. They will miss as much work as it takes. Leaping up and down, they will howl as Air Force One takes off leaving the angry socialist babies behind."

DOJ Reopens Probe of Black Teen Emmett Till's Slaying in 1955

By Rick Pearcey • July 12, 2018, 10:38 AM

AP reports:

The federal government has reopened its investigation into the slaying of Emmett Till, the black teenager whose brutal killing in Mississippi shocked the world and helped inspire the civil rights movement more than 60 years ago.

The Justice Department told Congress in a report in March it is reinvestigating Till's slaying in Money, Mississippi, in 1955 after receiving "new information." The case was closed in 2007 with authorities saying the suspects were dead; a state grand jury didn't file any new charges.

Deborah Watts, a cousin of Till, said she was unaware the case had been reopened until contacted by The Associated Press on Wednesday.

"The federal report, sent annually to lawmakers under a law that bears Till's name, does not indicate what the new information might be," the AP news story continues.

"But it was issued in late March following the publication last year of 'The Blood of Emmett Till,' a book that says a key figure in the case acknowledged lying about events preceding the slaying of the 14-year-old youth from Chicago," according to AP.

GOP Candidate Fitzgerald Doubles Down: Calls Planned Parenthood Death Camps

By Rick Pearcey • July 11, 2018, 11:33 AM

Calvin Freiburger reports at LifeSiteNews.com:

A Republican state senator running for Congress is holding his ground despite denunciations for comparing Planned Parenthood's abortion business to the Nazis' mass slaughter of Jews during World War II.

Kansas state Sen. Steve Fitzgerald is currently running to replace the retiring Rep. Lynn Jenkins in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the pro-life candidate has come under fire for condemning abortion with forceful historical comparisons.

According to LifeSiteNews, "last month, critics revisited a 2017 incident in which he sent a letter to Planned Parenthood Great Plains expressing displeasure that someone had donated to the organization in his name."

"This is as bad -- or worse -- as having one's name associated with Dachau," Fitzgerald replied, according to LifeSiteNews. "Dachau was one of the Holocaust's most notorious concentration camps, which housed more than 188,000 and claimed at least 28,000 victims," LifeSiteNews reports.

Medinsanity: Doctor Fired in U.K. for Suggesting Gender Is Biological

By Rick Pearcey • July 10, 2018, 10:55 AM

Thomas D. Williams reports at Breitbart:

A medical doctor with 26 years of experience working at the National Health Service (NHS) has been deemed "unfit to work" after insisting on identifying patients by their biological sex.

Dr. David Mackereth, 55, began training in May to become a health and disability assessor for the government but ran into trouble when his Christian and scientific convictions ran afoul of department protocols.

In his new job, Dr. Mackereth was to compile independent reports about the health of persons who were claiming disability benefits. His instructor told him that regardless of a patient or client's biological sex, he must only refer to them by their self-identified gender.

"I said that I had a problem with this," Mackereth is quoted as saying. "I believe that gender is defined by biology and genetics and that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female."

"I could have kept my mouth shut but it was the right time to raise it," the doctor said, according to Breitbart.

Instead of remaining silent, Mackereth criticizes this government attack on the human rights to free speech, freedom of thought, and freedom of religion.

"Firstly, we are not allowed to say what we believe. Secondly, as my case shows, we are not allowed to think what we believe. Finally, we are not allowed to defend what we believe," Mackereth said, according to Breitbart.

"I don't think I should be compelled to use a specific pronoun," the doctor said, Breitbart reports.

"I am not setting out to upset anyone. But if upsetting someone can lead to doctors being sacked then, as a society, we have to examine where we are going."

Party of Science? More Democrats Believe in UFOs Than in America

By Rick Pearcey • July 9, 2018, 10:28 AM

Daniel Greenfield writes at Frontpagemag.com:

58% of Democrats believe in UFOs, but only 32% are proud to be American. Only 37% of Republicans believe in flying saucers, but a full 80% are proud of their country.

Almost twice as many Democrats are willing to believe in being abducted by space aliens than in their country. Hillary Clinton had promised that if elected, she would find out the truth about the little green men and suggested that the planet had already been visited by aliens.

"Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51," she suggested.

The chair of Hillary Clinton's campaign, John Podesta, an obsessive UFO buff, appeared on an episode of Ancient Aliens which claimed that Hillary Clinton was defeated to suppress the truth about space aliens.

A larger point:

All this helps explain why the Democrats were so quick to retreat into conspiracy theories after losing the 2016 election. Just as they did after the JFK assassination and the 2000 election. It's natural for them to believe the worst of a country they already distrust.

The left's core beliefs are a series of conspiracy theories about class, race and gender. These conspiracy theories explain everything from crime rates to poverty to social problems. Most leftist programs are geared toward fighting a conspiracy by white people, by men, by the wealthy and the middle class that doesn't exist except in the minds of the left. . . .

Thus, we gain insight into the reactionary regressivism of so-called progressives:

They haven't replaced G-d with reason, but with flying saucers, storefront psychics, black cats, bad luck ladders and umbrellas, the wrath of Mother Earth, safe spaces, and the magical powers of dolphins. . . .

Democrats inhabit a demon-haunted world of superstitions and conspiracies. Instead of being enlightened, they were robbed of the confidence in the Creator and America that resounds from every patriotic Fourth of July anthem and song. They sold their birthright for the pottage of fear and hate.

They cower in safe spaces, fear the other and live their lives in the shadow of irrational terrors.

Buchanan: The Never-Trumpers Are Never Coming Back

By Rick Pearcey • July 6, 2018, 12:01 PM

Pat Buchanan writes:

With never-Trump conservatives bailing on the GOP and crying out for the Party of Pelosi to save us, some painful truths need to be restated.

The Republican Party of Bush I and II, of Bob Dole and John McCain, is history. It's not coming back. Unlike the Bourbons after the Revolution and the Terror, after Napoleon and the Empire, no restoration is in the cards.

It is over. The GOP's policies of recent decades -- the New World Order of George H.W. Bush, the crusades for democracy of Bush II -- failed, and are seen as having failed. With Trump's capture of the party they were repudiated.

There will be no turning back.

What were the historic blunders?

Mark Levin: If "Stare Decisis" Is Paramount, Put Monkeys on Supreme Court

By Rick Pearcey • July 5, 2018, 10:42 AM

Ed Straker writes at American Thinker:

Talk show host and constitutional scholar Mark Levin has been talking a lot this week about the philosophical arguments that are being made about Supreme Court nominees. Levin made the point that liberals are insisting that a nominee promise to slavishly follow stare decisis, or to obediently obey past cases that they like, such as Roe v. Wade.

But Levin made the point that if Supreme Court justices only need to blindly follow past decisions, we could easily put monkeys on the court instead of people.

Levin points out that some Supreme Court precedents are not ones to be blindly followed:

1) Korematsu v. United States, which upheld the internment of Japanese Americans en masse.

2) Plessy v. Ferguson, which upheld "separate but equal" segregation for blacks. Levin points out that Plessy was "settled law" for longer than Roe has been.

3) The Dred Scott case, where a slave who was in a free state was returned to his master.

"Levin says that Justices are human and can make mistakes," Straker continues. "That's why picking a justice who will blindly follow precedent is not the way to go."

"Instead, Levin says the President should select a nominee who will vow to follow the Constitution," Straker writes. "An originalist who follows the Constitution will then uphold precedent which was decided properly, and overrule precedents which weren't."

Rep. Gohmert: Abolishing ICE "Means Anarchy . . . It's the Way Countries End and a New Dictatorship Begins"

By Rick Pearcey • July 4, 2018, 11:18 AM

Craig Bannister reports at CNSNews.com:

The Democrats' new rallying cry calling for the abolition of U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) "is a call for anarchy," Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) warned Tuesday.

"It's the way countries end and a new dictatorship begins," Gohmert explained in an interview on Fox Business Channel.

Bannister quotes Gohmert:

It's a call for anarchy. And, it's amazing that it has caught on and has been spreading even among what were thought to be mainstream Democrats. I mean, it's insane. If you don't have borders, you don't have a country.

And, when you're a welfare state, like the U.S. has become, it is just a giant sucking sound from all over the world.

You can't control it, and it means anarchy. It means might makes right and then that, ultimately, leads to a totalitarian dictator coming in and rounding up the military, taking over.

It's the way countries end and a new dictatorship begins. You call for anarchy, and then you get a dictator.

"It's unbelievable that people that are so ignorant, they'll be such foolish servants of those who want a dictator, want a totalitarian government," Gohmert said, according to CNSNews.

"And that's the only way you can have socialism," Gohmert cautioned, CNSNews reports.

"You have to force people -- to take from those according to their ability and give to those according to their need -- it takes a totalitarian government to make that work."

Nancy Pearcey: SCOTUS on Pregnancy Centers -- Gov't May Not Compel Speech

By Rick Pearcey • July 2, 2018, 03:14 PM

The Pearcey Report Editor at Large Nancy Pearcey writes at CNSNews:

Can the government force an organization to advertise for its competitors?

The Supreme Court says no.

The case, NIFLA v. Becerra, involved a California law that forced licensed pregnancy centers to advertise for state-funded abortion clinics. The law specified how large the sign had to be, and even dictated the words to be used. It required the sign to be placed inside the center, on its website, and in all advertising. It even required centers to provide the telephone number of state agencies that could connect women to abortion providers.

The effect of the law was essentially to crowd out the center's own message.

The Court struck down the law as a violation of the First Amendment. In the majority opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas said, "California cannot co-opt the licensed facilities [pregnancy centers] to deliver its message for it."

Here is Nancy's conclusion: "The NIFLA ruling is a big win against compelled speech. It affirms that the government may not coerce individuals to promote a message with which they disagree.

"Whether you oppose abortion or favor it, whether you are conservative or liberal, we should all be glad that the Supreme Court has taken a stand for freedom of speech."

Fake News: Socialist Ocasio-Cortez Spreads Hoax Stats on U.S. Mass Shootings

By Rick Pearcey • June 29, 2018, 04:14 PM

A.W.R. Hawkins writes at Breitbart:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Candidate for U.S. Congress (D-NY), reacted to the lives lost in Annapolis by claiming the attack marked the 195th mass shooting this year.

She shocked the nation with a primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY-14) on June 26, and is now spreading stats on mass shootings that are exponentially higher than actual shooting figures support.

"Horrifying," Ocasio-Cortez tweets: "This is our nation's 195th mass shooting -- this year."

"So Ocasio-Cortez is claiming 195 mass shooting in the first six months of this year, and if the same kind of math applies to the next six months, that will mean a claim of 390 mass shootings for the year," Hawkins observes.

"The left made similar claims in 2015, suggesting 355 mass shootings for the year," Hawkins writes.

That figure is "so far removed from reality that Mother Jones editor Mark Follman stepped in to correct the record. . . ."

NY Socialist Darling DENIES Celebrating, Campaigning With Anti-Semite and Racist

By Rick Pearcey • June 28, 2018, 09:24 AM

Benny Johnson reports at the Daily Caller:

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned the political world and rank-in-file Democrats by defeating incumbent Joe Crowley in Tuesday's New York primary.

The Ocasio-Cortez win signaled the growing swing leftward for national Democrats, a party undergoing a power struggle and identity crisis after Trump's election victory in 2016.

The platform Ocasio-Cortez ran on was deeply progressive, calling on the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, nationalized health care, universal jobs guarantee and getting America to 100 percent green energy.

"However, footage reveals that Ocasio-Cortez also has associates with regressive views," Johnson continues.

"One of Ocasio-Cortez's most enthusiastic campaigners and a man who stood behind her at her victory party, Thomas Lopez-Pierre, is a known anti-Semite and racist," according to the DC.

"Lopez-Pierre has regularly used slurs against Jewish and black New Yorkers in public forums and while running for office himself," the DC reports.

However, in an update to the DC report, Ocasio-Cortez states via Twitter

No idea who this guy is, hundreds of folks walked into the hall open to the public last night. I absolutely denounce any such bigoted and reprehensible statements.

The Ocasio-Cortez tweet seems plausible -- except that the lead photo accompanying the DC story shows the reported bigot just one person away from the socialist, behind her, as she is speaking during her victory party.

That circumstance seems far different from his simply being one among many others, positioned farther away in the crowd of supporters. It is possible that the lead photo seeming to document the event is photoshopped. We await further developments on this story.

Supreme Court: "Congress ... Delegated to the President Authority to Suspend or Restrict the Entry of Aliens"

By Rick Pearcey • June 27, 2018, 12:49 PM

From CNSNews.com:

A 5-4 majority of the U.S. Supreme Court ruled [June 26] that President Donald Trump acted within his legal authority when he issued a proclamation in September 2017 restricting entry into the United States of citizens from eight countries who could not be properly vetted as potential terrorist threats.

The majority opinion in Trump v. Hawaii -- written by Chief Justice John Roberts and joined by Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch and Anthony Kennedy -- held that Trump's proclamation was well within the plain meaning of the power granted expressly to the president in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

"'By its plain language, §1182(f) grants the president broad discretion to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States,' Roberts wrote in the opinion of the court," CNSNews reports.

Judicial Watch filed Monday an ethics complaint against Rep. Maxine Waters for “inciting violence and assaults on the Trump Cabinet," according to Tom Fitton, president of the watchdog organization.

The group sent a hand-delivered letter to the chairman and co-chairman of the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether the California Democrat violated House ethics rules by encouraging violence against Trump Cabinet members.

Establishment & Social Media Giants Fail to "Fact Check" Time Mag's Refugee Hoax Cover

By Rick Pearcey • June 25, 2018, 11:49 AM

Allum Bokhari writes at Breitbart:

There are many examples of bias at Facebook, Twitter, Google and the purportedly impartial "fact-checking" organizations they now rely on, but one of the best ways to reveal the naked partisanship hiding under their masks is to look at what they don’t fact-check.

Last week, Time ran a now-infamous cover featuring President Trump looming over a crying immigrant child. The picture of the crying child had already been shared hundreds of thousands of times on social media amid left-wing outrage over what the media has called a "family separation policy" at the border.

"The cover, the Time story that accompanied it, and the original image that spread on social media, were misleading in every way," Bokhari continues.

"As Time now admits, the child wasn't 'carried away screaming' by border patrol agents. They were kept together. The child wasn't crying because she was separated from her mother -- she was, in her mother's own words, simply “'ired and thirsty.' Moreover, the child's father says her mother was seeking a job in America, and not 'fleeing violence' in Honduras as some claimed," Bokhari writes.

Rasmussen: Voters Blame Parents Illegally Crossing Border for Separations

Theodore Bunker reports at Newsmax:

Most voters, when asked who is to blame for separating the families found illegally crossing the border, blamed the parents and not the government, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll.

Rasmussen asked voters: "When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, who is more to blame -- the parents for breaking the law or the federal government for enforcing the law?"

According to Newsmax, Rasmussen found that 54% blame parents, 35% blame government, and 11% are unsure.

Student Sues University for $3.6 Million After It Targeted Her for Showing Jordan Peterson TV Clip on Using Pronouns

By Rick Pearcey • June 21, 2018, 10:49 AM

James Risdon reports at LifeSiteNews.com:

It's quiet at the Rainbow Centre at Wilfrid Laurier University.

Closed for the summer, no one answers the phones. Toby Finlay, the former administrator for that LGBTQ "safe space" on campus, is no longer there. He has graduated and moved on. Or so claims a representative of the Rainbow Centre in a Facebook message.

The stir sparked by that LGBTQ association at Wilfrid Laurier University last year, though, is still here.

And it's now grown into a $3.6-million lawsuit against the university and some of its staff by former teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd.

"She is taking on the university, associate professors of communication studies Drs. Herbert Pimlott and Nathan Rambukkana, and also Adria Joel, then the university's acting director of Diversity and Equity Prevention," LifeSiteNews continues.  

"In a statement of claim filed in Ontario's Superior Court last week, Shepherd alleges she has suffered attacks which have left her 'unemployable in academia' and have forced her to abandon her doctoral studies or even teach at a university as a master's graduate," LifeSiteNews reports.

"Shepherd has suffered nervous shock as a result of the conduct of the defendants which was the foreseeable and intended result. In the alternative, it was the reasonably foreseeable outcome of their conduct and the defendants were negligent in their treatment of her," the statement of claim asserts, according to LifeSite.

"It all started with a complaint filed by university's Rainbow Centre staff in November last year after Shepherd showed a clip of a TV Ontario show featuring a discussion about pronoun usage in Canada. Shepherd's class was then studying pronouns," LifeSiteNews reports.

Mary Zolkowski, 21, was sentenced to 45 days in jail after pleading guilty to fabricating a story about being sexually assaulted in a parking lot at Delta College in Bay County, MLive.com reported.

Truth claims -- propositions concerning reality -- need to be rationally assessed and evidentially tested, whether they concern accusations of rape or racism, or whether they concern assertions regarding the existence of God or of black holes or of that car that may hit you if you close your eyes and cross the street.

MALE "Transgen" Teens Beat GIRLS Top Track Competition, Prompting Parent Petitions

By Rick Pearcey • June 19, 2018, 01:55 PM

Craig Bannister reports at CNSNews.com:

Parents have launched two rule change petitions after two transgender high school students swept the Connecticut girls’ state track and field competitions.

As local station WTNH News 8 reports, sophomores Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood --  both of whom were born males, but now identify as females -- outcompeted genetic female athletes, which some female athletes and their parents say is unfair.

Memo to all concerned: Boys will be boys, and girls with be girls -- no matter how much sex-ed/transgen ideology authoritarian schools pour into students and parents skulls, and no matter how many drugs are prescribed and how many slice and dice surgeons make millions trying to "fix" the given, biological, factual, scientific natural order -- which just happens to relish male-female sexual diversity.

No "Immigrants" Were Killed in High Speed Chase With Border Patrol

By Rick Pearcey • June 18, 2018, 08:59 AM

Ed Straker writes at American Thinker:

The media, including, incredibly, Drudge, were reporting that "immigrants" had been killed in a high speed chase with the border patrol.

I investigated the news reports, and can assure you that there is no evidence that a single immigrant was harmed.

This is a classic example of fake news.

The border patrol gave chase to three suspicious vehicles in south Texas. One of the vehicles, filled with 14 people, fled at 100 miles per hour and flipped over, ejecting a number of occupants.

At least five people were killed and several others injured when an SUV believed to be carrying [so-called] undocumented immigrants crashed in southern Texas after being chased by Border Control agents. [Brackets added]

The occupants, however, were not immigrants of any kind.

Immigrants don't squeeze 14 people into an SUV and run away from the border patrol.

That's what illegal aliens do.

Kevin Hart Camp Responds to Kathy Griffin Smear

By Rick Pearcey • June 15, 2018, 12:50 PM

Ben Kew reports at Breitbart:

Sources close to comedian Kevin Hart rebuked Kathy Griffin after the controversial comedian attacked him for failing to go after President Donald Trump in his stand-up shows.

"Kathy is the last person on Kevin’s mind, believe me," sources close to the 38-year-old actor told Fox News.

"Everyone has something to say about Donald Trump, and that's the reason Kevin isn't speaking on him. Kevin honestly feels the Trump bits are overused and knows that people are tired of the political banter from comedians."

"Going after people isn't Kevin's style, and he isn't into telling people what they should or shouldn't think about the President," the source continued.

"Kevin would much rather stick to what he already does well, and that's telling jokes that resonate with people on a personal level."

"The response comes hours after Griffin criticized Hart for not mentioning Trump in his comedy routines, describing it as a [p---y move] because he is black," Breitbart reports.

Cops Livid: School Reading List "Almost an Indoctrination of Distrust"

By Rick Pearcey • June 14, 2018, 11:15 AM

Douglas Ernst reports at the Washington Times:

Police in the South Carolina town of Mount Pleasant are furious over a school's summer reading list they view as anti-cop indoctrination.

Fraternal Order of Police Tri-County Lodge #3 President John Blackmon told a local NBC affiliate this week that livid parents contacted him regarding Wando High School's summer reading list. He says two of four books offered to incoming freshmen for an English I class sow distrust of law enforcement in their fertile minds.

"Freshmen, they're at the age where their interactions with law enforcement have been very minimal," told the Charleston station on Monday. "They're not driving yet, they haven't been stopped for speeding, they don't have these type of interactions. This is putting in their minds. It's almost an indoctrination of distrust of police and we've got to put a stop to that.”

"Wando Principal Dr. Sherry Eppelsheimer released a statement saying a Request for Reconsideration of Instructional Materials has been received," the WTimes reports.

"I understand two of the selections/choices for this summer's reading list for English 1 College Prep classes are considered controversial by some members of our community. I appreciate their concern and input regarding this matter," Eppelsheimer wrote, according to the WTimes.

US President Donald Trump has lashed out at Hollywood actor Robert De Niro after the star denounced him with an expletive-laden speech at an awards ceremony.

De Niro, who has previously said he would like to punch the president, received a standing ovation for his verbal attack at the Tony Awards.

But in a tweet, Mr Trump described the actor as "a very Low IQ individual."

"I watched him . . . and truly believe he may be 'punch-drunk'," he said.

On Twitter, Trump also said:

I guess he doesn't realise the economy is the best it's ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!

Read: Text of Trump-Kim Joint Statement

By Rick Pearcey • June 12, 2018, 04:44 PM

What follows is the full text of the joint statement signed by U.S. President Donald J. Trump and North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un at the Singapore Summit -- issued June 12, 2018:

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and sincere exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula. President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:

  1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.–DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
  2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
  3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
  4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Having acknowledged that the U.S.–DPRK summit -- the first in history -- was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un commit to implement the stipulations in this joint statement fully and expeditiously.

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new U.S.–DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.

Weak: Twitter CEO Caves to Lib Backlash, Says Was Wrong to Eat at Chick-Fil-A

By Rick Pearcey • June 11, 2018, 10:08 AM

Peter Hasson reports at the Daily Caller:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday expressed regret over eating at Chick-fil-A, because of the chicken company’s CEO's personal views on gay marriage.

Dorsey tweeted a screenshot from his phone that showed a purchase he had made at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. After a liberal backlash, however, Dorsey apologized for eating at the popular fast food restaurant.

At issue was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's 2012 support for defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which he described as "the biblical definition of a family."

Reactionary liberals aren't just in your bedrooms and bathrooms, but they're in your salad bowls and chicken sandwiches.

These fake lovers of tolerance are ready to hate and pounce upon any violation of their masters' code of ethics.

Slaves -- which apparently includes Twitter's CEO -- know how high to jump when the extremist whip is cracked.

But humans question and intelligence revolts.

56 Lawmakers Sign Letter Calling for Probe of Planned Parenthood Sex-Abuse Cover-Up

By Rick Pearcey • June 8, 2018, 04:05 PM

Virginia Kruta reports at the Daily Caller:

Fifty-six lawmakers have signed off on a letter, addressed to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II, calling for an investigation into Planned Parenthood over allegations that the abortion-provider has covered up evidence of child sex abuse.

According to the DC, the June 7 lawmakers' letter (following a report by Live Action) includes the following:

The [Live Action] report's findings suggest that abusers feel comfortable taking their victims to Planned Parenthood.

We are therefore requesting an investigation into Title X recipients, particularly Planned Parenthood, to determine how widespread this failure is and if there are other instances where Planned Parenthood failed in its duty to report suspected child abuse to local authorities and to HHS.

The DC concludes: "Live Action's report, along with a series of videos, allege[s] Planned Parenthood has been complicit in covering up such crimes by allowing abortions to be performed on girls as young as 12 without notifying authorities. Since 12 is below the age of consent in all 50 states, failure to report such an abortion is considered the failure to report a crime under Title X."

Sickey Mouse: Disney Hired Convicted Child Molester to Work on 2006 Kids Show

By Rick Pearcey • June 7, 2018, 12:31 PM

Doug Mainwaring reports at LifeSiteNews:

Disney is facing backlash after news resurfaced of it hiring in 2006 a man to work on a children's series who was convicted of sexual crimes against children two years previously. 

Brian Peck was found guilty in 2004 of lewd acts against a child as well as oral copulation with a child. The child was reportedly a Nickelodeon star.

While Peck pleaded "no contest" to these two charges, his original charges also included sodomy and attempted sodomy with a child, using a child for sex acts, and sexual penetration by foreign object with a child. . . .

"While the Disney brand is ostensibly built on child and family-oriented programming, parents and pro-family organizations have expressed outrage over the brand's promotion of the LGBT agenda as well as other politically correct viewpoints," LifeSite reports.

I'm Black and Conservative -- Democrats Don't Own Me

By Rick Pearcey • June 6, 2018, 01:00 PM

Clemson University's Stone Washington writes at College Fix:

As a conservative black college student, I've had my fair share of arguments, accusation and insults. But I refuse to back down. Here's why.

I've learned from my father, Professor Ellis Washington, that we are free to choose our own path, one that can and should diverge from the Democrat Party -- the perceived norm for Black people.

My father taught me how the Left has a dark history of despising the combination of "Black" and "conservative," which shatters their warped paradigm of how all Blacks owe allegiance to the Democrat Party, envisioning themselves as the party that freed Blacks from slavery and condemned racism (they didn't, it was the Republicans).

"In a sense," Washington continues, "I have freed my mind from the invisible chains of servitude to a party I owe nothing to, yet a party that demands my allegiance."

What Changed? Guns Then, America Now

By Rick Pearcey • June 5, 2018, 01:45 PM

Walter Williams writes at Frontpagemag.com:

I am part of a group of about 50 million Americans who are 65 years of age or older. Those who are 90 or older were in school during the 1930s. My age cohort was in school during the 1940s. Baby boomers approaching their 70s were in school during the 1950s and early '60s.

Try this question to any one of those 50 million Americans who are 65 or older: Do you recall any discussions about the need to hire armed guards to protect students and teachers against school shootings?

Do you remember school policemen patrolling the hallways? How many students were shot to death during the time you were in school? For me and those other Americans 65 or older, when we were in school, a conversation about hiring armed guards and having police patrol hallways would have been seen as lunacy. There was no reason.

What's the difference between yesteryear and today? The logic of the argument for those calling for stricter gun control laws, in the wake of recent school shootings, is that something has happened to guns. Guns have behaved more poorly and become evil. Guns themselves are the problem. The job for those of us who are 65 or older is to relay the fact that guns were more available and less controlled in years past, when there was far less mayhem.

Something else is the problem.

Supreme Court Sides With Baker Who Refused to Make Homosex Wedding Cake

By Rick Pearcey • June 4, 2018, 12:17 PM

Over at Hannity.com, the staff posts:

The United States Supreme Court released a highly anticipated decision Monday morning, siding with a Colorado baker who refused to make a same-sex wedding cake.

In a surprise 7-2 decision, the court discounted an earlier ruling against the baker in a Colorado court, but refused to go so far as to decide the broader issue of whether American businesses have the basic right to refuse service to same-sex couples over religious beliefs.

"The Commission's hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment's guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion," wrote Justice Kennedy.

The decision went on to say the "broader issue must await further elaboration"

"The reason and motive for the baker's refusal were based on his sincere religious beliefs and convictions. The Court's precedents make clear that the baker, in his capacity as the owner of a business serving the public, might have his right to the free exercise of religion limited by generally applicable laws," wrote Kennedy, according to Hannity.com.

NFL Teams Sent Scantily Clad "Alternate Cheerleaders" to Mingle With Male Fans

By Rick Pearcey • June 1, 2018, 02:34 PM

Ryan Gaydos reports at Fox News:

NFL teams reportedly use "alternate cheerleaders" to mingle with fans in the seats or in luxury boxes while the actual performers are on the field during game days.

The Washington Redskins, Houston Texans, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens are among the teams who use a separate cheerleading roster to serve as "scantily clad ambassadors" whose jobs are to mingle with male fans, the New York Times reported Thursday.

The Redskins, in particular, have come under fire over the last month for the way team officials have used the cheerleading squad in the past. Several Redskins cheerleaders told the Times in May that they felt they were being used as escorts during a photo shoot in Costa Rica.

Memo to NFL teams: If this report is accurate, you need to clean this up. Just like you need clean up those simple-minded (even if sincere by some) protests during the national anthem.

In both cases the NFL should be slime-free, showing respect for women and for the empowering, liberating, and humane ideals upon which the American body politic and ethos are founded.

Media-Celebrity Axis Targets Ivanka, Ignores Obama-Era Child Trafficking

By Rick Pearcey • May 31, 2018, 01:09 PM

Lloyd Billingsley writes at Frontpagemag.com:

"Even if the immigration law is executed with perfection, there will be parents separated from their children."

Could that be Steven Wagner, Acting Assistant Secretary Administration for Children and Families with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services? Or maybe it was hard-line ICE boss Thomas Homan? Or perhaps President of the United States Donald Trump at his Nashville rally?  

Actually, the speaker was Cecilia Muñoz, formerly of the National Council of La Raza and President Obama's pick for White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. Muñoz was interviewed in 2011 for the PBS "Frontline" film Lost in Detention, which contends that "more than one million immigrants have been deported since President Obama took office. Under his administration, deportations and detentions have reached record levels. The get-tough policy has brought complaints of abuse and harsh treatment, including charges that families have been unfairly separated after being caught in the nationwide dragnet."

1st Female to Join British Infantry Quits After 2 Weeks -- Training Too Hard

By Rick Pearcey • May 30, 2018, 01:24 PM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

The first woman to join a British infantry regiment has quit, and after only two weeks of training, according to the Daily Mail.

The woman could not keep up with the male soldiers and she herself admitted that she had underestimated the physical rigors of the military training. 

The RAF infantry course was 18 weeks long and started in May. The regiment is comprised of 2,000 soldiers and is designed to protect British bases and airfields around the world.

"The ban on women in British combat units was lifted in 2016 after then-Prime Minister David Cameron, head of the Conservative Party, said 'it was essential that the make-up of the Armed Forces reflected society and he lifted the ban on women serving in combat units'," the Daily Mail reports, according to CNSNews.

MLK's Niece to Starbucks: Stop Supporting Planned Parenthood

By Rick Pearcey • May 29, 2018, 01:20 PM

Melanie Arter reports at CNSNews.com:

A coalition of pro-life leaders has reached out to Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson calling on him to stop donating to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider, pointing out that it was founded by "an outspoken racist" and is responsible for "the slaughter of minority children" through abortion.

A letter signed by Alveda King, the director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, ForAmerica President L. Brent Bozell, Richard Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, and many other pro-life leaders was sent to Starbucks on Monday -- the same day that Starbucks closes its stores for racial bias training.

What follows is a portion of the letter to Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson:

Dear Mr. Johnson:

Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said, "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population."

In your April statement responding to the arrest of two African-American men sitting in one of your stores, you declared that Starbucks' "founding values are based on humanity and inclusion."

As men and women who fight for the value and dignity of every human life, we ask:

Where is the “humanity” and “inclusion” when your company matches employees’ donations to Planned Parenthood, whose founder Margaret Sanger was an outspoken racist with genocidal intentions?

This week, Starbucks is holding "racial-bias education" training for nearly 175,000 employees nationwide.

If you think this public relations fix means Starbucks is no longer complicit in racism, it's time to wake up and smell your own coffee. . . .

Soros-Linked Group: Trump Is "Racist" for Calling Vicious MS-13 Gang "Animals"

By Rick Pearcey • May 25, 2018, 02:57 PM

John Binder reports at Breitbart:

The left wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) -- linked to globalist billionaire George Soros -- says President Trump is "racist" and "dehumanizing" MS-13 gang members when he describes them as "animals."

In a tweet, for example, the SPLC states: "It is unacceptable for such racist, dehumanizing language to now be repeated 10 times on the White House website in a document that speaks for America."

This attack is pathetic and revealing, folks. And if you insist, I'll explain why.

In certain contexts, the word "animals" is one way, among other acceptable ways, to describe humans who -- as if animals -- tear other humans to shreds (the way animals do to other animals -- "nature, red in tooth and claw" comes to mind).

Among humans, to "tear to shreds" can mean to emotionally and physically rip asunder. Or in the poetry of the street, to fulfill the vicious MS-13 gang motto -- which translates: "Kill, Rape, Control." 

So wild man Trump is accurate in his civilized use of "animals." And poor old SPLC is either very stupid, very fanatical, or extremely dishonest. I suppose these three options need not be mutually exclusive.

Even more, poor ol' SPLC is out of touch. Not just out of touch with the English language, but also out of touch with the American people -- as is indicated in the news today by this: "Harvard/Harris Poll: Majority Agree MS-13 Are Animals."

You could say SPLC, in its effort to unfairly and unjustly tear Trump to shreds, is itself animalistic. At this point, SPLC could embrace its animal identity and affirm going full hyena at the moon.

Or repent. Repent of the false charge of racism, of the phony accusation of "dehumanizing," and of your own devil-awful misuse of the English language to, as it were, "Kill, Rape, Control."

"Wear Tech": Feds to Spend Millions on Jewelry, Clothes That Monitor How Much You Drink

By Rick Pearcey • May 24, 2018, 01:36 PM

Elizabeth Harrington reports at the Free Beacon:

The National Institutes of Health is preparing to spend millions on research studies to develop jewelry and clothes that can monitor the alcohol intake of Americans.

The agency recently submitted two grant opportunities, asking for submissions from applicants to receive federal funding to develop "wearable alcohol biosensors."

"Rapid advances are being made in wearable technology, including clothing, jewelry and other devices with broadly diverse functions that meet medical or consumer needs," according to the funding opportunity. . . .

"It is envisioned that wearable alcohol monitors will serve useful purposes in research, clinical, and treatment settings, will play a role in public safety, and will be of interest to individuals interested in keeping track of personal health parameters," the agency states, according to Harrington. 

"Designs may emphasize any of these potential market subsets or may seek to be broadly marketable."

Ah, yes: "Broadly Marketable." No doubt the secret police from authoritarian regimes around the world are already standing in line. For if wearable technology exists to monitor drink, you can also expect to see "wear tech" able to monitor in real time a host of other behaviors.

If you're going to run a safe and secure plantation, education camp, or "forward-looking" regime, it's crucial to know how often and how much workers, slaves, underbosses, rebels, rejects, and rivals are drinking, sleeping, talking, and laboring -- not to mention planning escapes, coups, or Declarations of Independence.

Big Tranny Gov't: Students Should Report Peers Who Call "Trans" Pupils by Factual, Biological Sex

By Rick Pearcey • May 23, 2018, 02:39 PM

Claire Chretien reports at LifeSiteNews:

It's "illegal" for children to call "transgender" classmates by their actual biological sex, according to one UK elementary school that asks its students to report peers who do so.

The school offers extensive guidelines on "being a trans-friendly school" and minimizing distinctions between boys and girls.

Students at Arbury Primary School are between the ages of four and 11, according to its website. It bills itself as having "a commitment to equality in respect of disability, ethnicity, culture, national origin, national status, gender, gender identity, religion, faith background or sexual identity. . ."

It is unfortunate that Arbury Primary School does not have a commitment to the facts of life, including the biological facts of male-female diversity.

This grooming of kids in avoiding reality and in reporting classmates who rightfully rebel -- as human beings -- against the tyranny of ideological passions alienated from space-time reality seems a great way to manufacture compliant humano-droids who will trust and obey whatever Big Education, Big Government, or even Big Islam (more here, here, and here), has in mind for them.

Don't think, just obey.

Do as you're told by extremist authorities who -- as if heading up a spiritualist cult -- really don't want biological science to distract you from their plans for your life. 

There's no way this grooming, this "education," could be a breeding ground for, let's say, fascism. Right?

But there's a bright side. Do your lessons well and one day you could be in charge of the Secret Police. The kingdoms of this world could be all yours.

Major Donor Pulls Funds From UMinn for Discriminating Against Ben Shapiro

By Rick Pearcey • May 22, 2018, 11:30 AM

Hank Berrien writes at Daily Wire:

After the shabby treatment the University of Minnesota doled out to Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro in February, relegating him to speaking off campus rather than on the main campus despite the fact that they had easily found space on campus for arch-leftist Senator Elizabeth Warren and home state leftist Senator Al Franken, a major donor to the university has pulled their funding and shifted to partnering with Young Americans for Freedom -- the chapter affiliate of Young America’s Foundation, which had sponsored Shapiro’s speech.

No college or university should be an education camp of one-sided indoctrination (or of any kind of teaching that is fearful of open inquiry) -- lest schools become seedbeds of inhumanity and fanaticism, as so many campuses are today.

Free minds and an honest education are essential to free living and free countries.

James Woods Faults Democrats for School Insecurity

By Rick Pearcey • May 21, 2018, 04:41 PM

Cheryl Chumley writes at the Washington Times:

James Woods, one of the few conservatives in Hollywood, sent out a scathing tweet about Democrats and their blocking of common-sense measures that could secure our nation’s public schools from shooting attackers.

And he's dead-on in his assessment. Democrats, sadly -- horrifically, really -- seem to use the tragedies of dead children to further illogical gun control. Like how?

Like pressing for gun-free zones, for example.

It's not as if criminals will listen to law and lay down their weapons, right?

According to Chumley, "Woods puts it this way on Twitter: 'When fanatic Muslims started hijacking airplanes, we instituted rigid TSA restrictions. Result? No more hijackings in America. It's simple enough to institute security protocols that work for schools. Why won't #Democrats support it?'"

Chumley acknowledges that not "all on the left are purposely using child shootings for political gain. Some are truly and genuinely attempting to stop the madness, stop the killings."

However, she continues, "others are political operatives who care more about curbing Second Amendment rights than putting an end to school-based violence."

Chumley reminds all concerned: "Stripping gun rights from law-abiding citizens does nothing to end violence. It only emboldens the criminals -- only puts guns into the hands of those with evil intents in their hearts, and takes away a sure defense from their would-be victims."

Here's the real-world trajectory of gun control: It ends up weaponizing the bad guys and making the rest of us sitting ducks. No child in any school on earth ought to be a sitting duck.

"It's time to start looking at more common-sense solutions," Chumley recommends, as she notes challenges that attend the "prescription medicine field," "fatherless homes," "broken homes," and the "removal of God from all-things-public."

Regarding Chumley's fourth area of concern, it's crucial to realize that the Creator-endowed pre-political, pre-governmental right to life (see the Declaration) entails the unalienable human right to self-defense.

Protecting life -- including self-defense -- truly is foundational to who we are -- to who all human beings are.

Every human being ("red and yellow, black and white") is "created equal" and "endowed" by a verifiable and knowable Creator -- and is empowered by publicly actionable information (we're talking about space-time data and principles, not privatized so-called "religion") concerning "certain unalienable rights" -- so as to make it a violation on the highest order when any individual, group, or government infringes upon who we are by suppressing our intrinsic human right to protect ourselves, our families, our friends, and our communities.

Human dignity demands human self-defense. No student "endowed by their Creator" should ever be a sitting duck.

Our greatest defense is remembering who we are.

Our greatest liberation is acting upon that information.

And our greatest schools ought to be making that wisdom as clear as day for all to see.

Pelosi Echoes Dishonest "News" That Trump Called Illegal Immigrants "Animals"

By Rick Pearcey • May 17, 2018, 02:51 PM

Andrew Kugle reports at FreeBeacon:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday denounced Donald Trump for calling illegal immigrants "animals," without clarifying that the president was only referring to members of the transnational drug gang MS-13. [emphasis added]

"When the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, 'These aren't people; these are animals,' you have to wonder: does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?" Pelosi said at her weekly press conference.

Trump's remark came in response to a comment from Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims about MS-13.

He said the following: "We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in. We're stopping a lot of them, but we're taking people out of the country. You wouldn't believe how bad these people are. These aren't people. These are animals, and we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before."

"Numerous media outlets falsely reported that Trump was referring to all migrants coming into the United States," Kugle writes.

"The New York Times characterized Trump's remarks as him having 'lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting,' tweeting out the text of his remarks without the previous MS-13 statement for context," Kugle reports.

Here is video of the give and take between Sheriff Mims and President Trump.

Speaking of animals, it may be that our pet cats and dogs can do a more honest job of reporting than some of the animals that soil the formerly mainstream media.

Ratings Crisis: CNN Suffers Viewership Collapse of Nearly 30%

By Rick Pearcey • May 16, 2018, 12:35 PM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart:

With week two of May 2018 now in the books, we find that CNN's ratings have collapsed even further, close to -30 percent in total viewers and an astonishing -35 percent in demo viewers. . . .

Compared to this same week last year, Fox News increased its total viewers in primetime and total day by +6 and +3 percent, respectively. While MSNBC did see a ratings drop, it was able to keep that drop in the single digits: -9 percent in total day and in primetime.

CNN's viewership drop, however, is jaw-dropping, especially when you recall just how big the news was last week.

Michael Avenatti, the Deep State Tool

By Rick Pearcey • May 15, 2018, 11:50 AM

Mathew Vadum writes at Frontpagemag.com:

Trump antagonist and left-wing character assassin Michael Avenatti, whom Tucker Carlson has taken to calling "that creepy porn lawyer," is threating to sue journalists for a conservative-leaning media outlet for defamation for daring to report on the attorney's highly questionable ethics and business dealings.

Avenatti's uncharacteristic loss of self-control could indicate that the attorney is beginning to realize his vexatious lawsuit against President Trump to free plastic surgery-addicted X-rated film star Stormy Daniels to talk about the alleged affair she had with Trump -- that she has already talked about at length over and over and over -- is about to collapse.

"The media-savvy attorney who has become a household name across America has to know he has close to zero chance of succeeding in his own defamation lawsuit because he is now a hugely famous public figure who no longer enjoys the same civil law protections he enjoyed when he was relatively unknownm," Vadum continues.

"Or all of this could be an act, a kind of political theater aimed at an ulterior objective such as continuing to generate adverse publicity for President Trump to distract from his many impressive policy achievements," Vadum writes.

However that may be, according to Vadum, "The evidence continues to accumulate that Avenatti's relentless assault on President Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen is part of the Barack Obama-led anti-democratic insurgency to oust the duly elected 45th president of the United States from the White House."

Deceptive Florida School District Shuts Down Information After Stoneman Douglas Shooting

By Rick Pearcey • May 14, 2018, 11:38 AM

David Fleshler reports at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

The Broward school district's repeated, emphatic -- and it turns out, false -- statements that Nikolas Cruz had not been in a controversial disciplinary program fit a pattern of an institution on the defensive and under siege.

Facing significant legal and political exposure over the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the district has tried to keep information from the public and put out untrue and misleading statements, frustrating parents who say this is the time for maximum transparency. [italics added]

The district is fighting in court against the release of school surveillance video. It flatly refused to issue any records regarding the shooting to the news media, in a possible violation of the state's open-records law.

"Superintendent Robert Runcie has blocked critics, including parents, from his Twitter account," Fleshler continues.

"More than two months after the shooting, a Broward Sheriff's detective told a state commission on school safety that he was still waiting for the district to provide all of Cruz's disciplinary records."

Venezuela's Dictator Proclaims 1.5 Million Bolivars "Mother's Day" Bonus!

By Rick Pearcey • May 11, 2018, 12:54 PM

Which amounts to $2.15 U.S. Frances Martel reports at Breitbart:

Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro announced on Wednesday that Venezuelan mothers will receive a 1.5 million bolívar deposit in their bank accounts, a "bonus" to celebrate Mother's Day in the socialist Latin American country.

According to currency exchange rates monitored by the website DolarToday -- which values the bolívar based on real market value, not government estimates -- the bonus will put $2.15 in the pockets of Venezuelan mothers.

"We will give Venezuelan mothers a 1.5 million bolívar bonus as a gift for all the mothers and grandmothers of Venezuela, that is why we will win," Maduro announced during a campaign rally on Wednesday for a presidential election he scheduled for May 20 in which he is competing against two socialists; non-socialist contenders were banned from the ballot.

Obama Legacy Deserves to Be Destroyed

By Rick Pearcey • May 10, 2018, 01:18 PM

David Harsanyi writes at the Federalist:

It's strange that a president who had such a transformative effect on our national discourse will leave such a negligible policy legacy. But Barack Obama, whose imperial term changed the way Americans interact and in some ways paved the way for the Trump presidency, is now watching his much-celebrated and mythologized two-term legacy be systematically demolished. This, in many ways, tells us that American governance still works.

When Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Iran deal, he could do so without much difficulty because the agreement hinged on presidential fiat rather than national consensus. But Obama's appeasement of Iran was only one in a string of unilateral norm-busting projects that deserve to be dismantled.

Border Deployment Leads to Arrest of 1,600 More Illegals

By Rick Pearcey • May 9, 2018, 12:57 PM

Anna Giaritelli reports at the Washington Examiner:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection [CPB] officers have apprehended an additional 1,600 people attempting to illegally enter the country from Mexico since April 15 as a result of the deployment of National Guard troops to the southwest border, CBP and defense officials said Wednesday.

National Guard officials overseeing the border state deployments said troops helping monitor the international boundary have freed up more border agents to physically guard the border. The result has led to a surge in the amount of criminal activity agents have stopped. . . .

"As of Wednesday, 775 troops have been deployed and are on the ground providing 'direct support on the ground' in seven sectors assisting law enforcement officers," Giaritelli continues.

"Troops are providing support from the air, surveillance back-up, and assistance with infrastructure projects like vegetation clearing and road maintenance, not including to the border wall construction," Giaritelli reports.

"Another task is to specifically free up agents to leave their desks and get back out to the field," according to Giaritelli.

"The troops monitoring remote video surveillance systems have then been able to report sightings to a greater field of agents and thus, the number of apprehensions has increased, officials said," according to Giaritelli.

Nancy Pelosi Calls Ad Saying She'll Raise Taxes "Accurate" -- Video

Gun-Free Britain: 4 Shootings in 48 Hours in Sadiq Khan's London

By Rick Pearcey • May 7, 2018, 08:59 AM

Jack Montgomery writes at Breitbart:

Four people have been shot over a 48-hour period in Sadiq Khan's London, leaving a teenager dead and a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old with head injuries. . . .

The shootings came as establishment politicians and commentators were working themselves into a lather over comments by U.S. President Donald Trump concerning the level of violence in London, delivered at a conference of the National Rifle Association (NRA), which defends and promotes Americans' constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Surgeons at a London hospital which President Trump compared to a "war zone" admitted he was right about knife crime in the British capital, but argued that guns were "no solution" to the problem, and that gunshot wounds were more difficult to repair than knife wounds.

"The doctors appeared not to understand that President Trump was not advocating for criminals using knives to be given guns instead, but for law-abiding citizens to be allowed to own arms for self-defence," Montgomery observes.

"In any event," Montgomery concludes, "the wave of shootings over the past weekend, viewed alongside statistics showing gun crime in London rose by an astonishing 42 per cent from 2015/16 to 2016/17, would appear to suggest that limiting legal access to firearms for ordinary citizens does not deter criminals from using them.

Extremist Liberals Will Use Your Kids' Schools to Eliminate the 2nd Amendment

By Rick Pearcey • May 2, 2018, 03:23 PM

Warner Todd Huston writes at Constitution.com:

If you love the U.S. Constitution, your politics are center right. But you WILL be the last generation to live under the law of the land because you are sitting idly by and allowing people who hate America to teach your children that the Constitution needs to be destroyed.

This is no hyperbole.

Three separate incidents have occurred this week that more or less proves that our schools have now thrown away any pretense to being "teachers" of our children and have become little else but liberal indoctrinators.

"On the tail of two months of teachers and school administrators all across the country and in every state sponsoring student walkouts to attack our Second Amendment," Huston continues, "we also see these same people working to put an end to the First Amendment. Kids are learning how to hate the U.S.A. and you are paying for this with your taxes, folks."

Sanctuary Cities Protect Crooked Employers and Human Traffickers

By Rick Pearcey • May 1, 2018, 11:32 AM

Michael Cutler writes at Frontpagemag.com:

We have all heard the bogus claim that "Sanctuary Cities" and "Sanctuary States" protect the "immigrants" from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents and that the mayors of sanctuary cities are being compassionate.

There is no compassion to be found in exploitation.

In reality, politicians who create and support sanctuary policies are every bit as disgusting and exploitative of illegal aliens as are human traffickers and unscrupulous employers who intentionally hire illegal aliens and benefit by sanctuary policies and, indeed those human traffickers and employers of illegal aliens are being provided with "sanctuary" and are being shielded from detection by ICE.

Mayors and governors of "sanctuary" jurisdictions are actually "partners in crime" with human traffickers and exploitive employers.

5 Habits That Can Add More Than a Decade to Your Life

By Rick Pearcey • April 30, 2018, 03:18 PM

Ian Sample reports at the Guardian:

People who stick to five healthy habits in adulthood can add more than a decade to their lives, according to a major study into the impact behaviour has on lifespan.

Researchers at Harvard University used lifestyle questionnaires and medical records from 123,000 volunteers to understand how much longer people lived if they followed a healthy diet, controlled their weight, took regular exercise, drank in moderation and did not smoke.

When the scientists calculated average life expectancy, they noticed a dramatic effect from the healthy habits. Compared with people who adopted none of them, men and women who adhered to all five saw their life expectancy at 50 rise from 26 to 38 years and 29 to 43 years respectively, or an extra 12 years for men and 14 for women.

"When we embarked on this study, I thought, of course, that people who adopted these habits would live longer. But the surprising thing was how huge the effect was," says study co-author Meir Stampfer of Harvard, according to the Guardian.

Bill Cosby: From "America's Dad" to Disgraced Comic

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2018, 11:31 AM

BBC.com reports:

Bill Cosby was once known to millions as "America's Dad," but the comedian now faces several jail terms after being convicted of sexual assault.

His role as the benevolent, jumper-wearing Dr Cliff Huxtable in 1980s hit sitcom The Cosby Show made him a national treasure in the U.S.

But more than a dozen women accused Cosby of misconduct, and one case made it to court.

The jury failed to reach a verdict in June 2017, but a retrial led to his conviction less than a year later.

How did this man, a household name for so long in America, rise and fall so far?

Alfie Update: Tom Evans Blasts Doctors: "Third Day -- Not One Problem With Alfie"

By Rick Pearcey • April 26, 2018, 11:28 AM

Harvey Gavin reports at the U.K. Express:

Speaking outside Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, Tom Evans said Alfie no longer requires intensive care [and that he, Mr. Evans,] struggles to believe the toddler is suffering from a neurogenerative disease.

Doctors say the 23-month-old is suffering from an incurable degenerative brain disorder and continued treatment is hopeless.

But Alfie's dad told reporters this morning: "For the third day there's been not one single problem with him. The nurses came in and said: 'Wow!' . . ."

"Alfie doesn't need intensive care anymore. Alfie is lying on the bed with one litre of oxygen going into his lungs and the rest is him," Evans said, according to the Express. "Some people say this is a miracle. It's not a miracle, it's a misdiagnosis."

Doctor for Whom Asperger Syndrome Named Helped Nazis Kill Children

By Rick Pearcey • April 23, 2018, 11:46 AM

Tamar Lapin reports at the NYPost:

The Austrian doctor for whom Asperger syndrome is named helped the Nazis kill disabled children during World War II, according to a study published Thursday.

Hans Asperger, a pediatrician who first identified the syndrome in 1944, made good with the Nazis by referring children to one of their notorious euthanasia clinics, Medical University of Vienna medical historian Herwig Czech revealed in the journal Molecular Autism.

Nearly 800 children who didn't fit into the Third Reich's criteria of "worthy to live" -- meaning they lacked "racial purity" and "hereditary worthiness" -- died at the Am Spiegelgrund clinic in Vienna between 1940 and 1945. . . .

"The children, who had physical or psychological 'defects,' were deemed undesirable and were killed through starvation and lethal injection -- though their cause of death was reported as pneumonia," Lapin continues.

"While Asperger touted himself as having shielded his patients from the Nazi regime, he was a cog in its killing machine and was rewarded for his loyalty with career opportunities, Czech found," according to Lapin.

Asperger "was responsible for depriving of their liberty many children whom he deemed incapable of existing outside institutions," Lapin reports.

Rev. Graham to Trump: Please Help Army Chaplain Being Persecuted by LGBT Enforcers

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2018, 09:33 AM

Michael Chapman writes at CNSNews.com:

Evangelical Christian Rev. Franklin Graham called upon President Donald Trump "to do something about" an Army chaplain, who is a Baptist, and who faces "serious punishment" because he refused to allow a lesbian couple to participate in one of his marriage retreats. 

"Mr. President, I hope you will be able to do something about this," said Rev. Graham in an April 18 post on Facebook. "You are the commander in chief of the U.S. Armed Forces."

"Army Chaplain Scott Squires is being punished for doing his job," said Graham. "He's facing serious punishment for explaining to a soldier that he couldn't conduct a marriage retreat that would include same-sex couples -- because of his belief in the biblical definition of marriage. . . ."

"When Chaplain Squires realized that a same-sex couple wanted to participate in his marriage retreat, he explained they could not but he also sought to arrange a retreat for the couple with a chaplain who would allow their participation," Chapman writes. "However, this apparently was not acceptable to the lesbians and the pro-LGBT enforcers in the Army."

The Enemy in Our Schools: Should Anti-American Marxist Set History Curriculum for American Schools?

By Rick Pearcey • April 19, 2018, 11:34 AM

Lloyd Billingsley answers at Frontpagemag.com:

"If you’ve read Marx, there’s really no reason to read Howard Zinn," notes author Daniel Flynn, but many have read Zinn's million-selling A People’s History of the United States.

As Rutgers history professor David Greenberg notes in a 2013 New Republic article headlined "Agit-Prof," Zinn's famous book is "a pretty lousy piece of work."

Even so, it gets great reviews within a circle of Marxist academics such as Eric Foner, leftist rockers such as Rage Against the Machine, and actors such as Matt Damon, who in Good Will Hunting tells his psychiatrist that A People’s History will "knock you on your a--."

For Howard Zinn, America was evil and capitalism bad -- except for his lucrative publishing deal, and prestigious professorship at Boston University. Zinn was pretty quiet about the Soviet Union and what he might have done during the Stalin-Hitler Pact, but Mao Tse-Tung's China was the closest thing to a "people's government."

Wells Fargo Stems the Tide: Not a Bank's Job to Set U.S. Gun Policy

By Rick Pearcey • April 16, 2018, 08:57 AM

A.W.R. Hawkins reports at Breitbart:

Wells Fargo stemmed the tide of the push for new financial restrictions on gun makers and sellers by stressing that it is not a bank's job to set U.S. gun policy.

Wells Fargo believes firearm policy is a debate for Congress instead.

According to Reuters, Wells Fargo CEO John Shrewsberry said, "The best way to make progress on these issues is through the political and legislative process. In the meantime, Wells Fargo is engaging our customers that legally manufacture firearms and other stakeholders on what we can do together to promote better gun safety in our communities."

"Wells Fargo's refusal to place new regulations or stipulations on legal firearm manufacturers represents a break with Citigroup and Bank of America," Hawkins writes.

Biggest Black Lives Matter Facebook Page Is Fake -- Report

By Rick Pearcey • April 10, 2018, 10:49 AM

Simon Kent reports at Breitbart:

An Australian trade union organizer has been suspended amid claims he ran a fake Black Lives Matter Facebook page that siphoned off hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations.

The page garnered almost 700,000 followers -- dwarfing the Black Lives Matter movement's official page -- before it was suspended by Facebook. 

It is alleged some of the bank accounts where the money was transferred were in Australia and it was unclear how much was provided to genuine causes -- if at all.

The scam site is claimed to have collected money through online fundraisers and solicited more than $US100,000 in donations, according to a CNN report..

"Ian MacKay, the official in question, worked at the hard left National Union of Workers and has dozens of websites related to black rights registered under his name, including blackpowerfist.com," according to Breitbart.

"Mr. Mackay did not respond to questions from CNN but said, 'My domain name buying and selling is a personal hobby'," Kent reports.

Hungarians Defy Soros, Give Crushing Win to Pro-Christian Viktor Orban

By Rick Pearcey • April 9, 2018, 03:59 PM

Michael Brown writes at LifeSiteNews.com:

If the Huffington Post is to be believed, a bigoted Prime Minister in Hungary is leading the nation in a dangerous, ultra-right direction, to the consternation of the populace.

If the election results are to be believed, a courageous Hungarian leader is standing against a sea of political correctness, with the support of the populace.

I'd say in this case, the Hungarian people have a better sense of reality than does the Huffington Post.

"Sunday's elections resulted in a decisive win for Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his Fidesz party. (This will mark Orban's third consecutive term)," Brown continues.

"It was also a victory against Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, who actively supported the opposition liberal (and globalist) candidates. That's why," Brown writes, "a Breitbart headline proclaimed, "Bloody Nose for Brussels: Landslide Triumph as Anti-Globalist, Anti-Soros Orban Wins Third Term in Hungary."

Media's Deafening Silence on the YouTube Shooter

By Rick Pearcey • April 5, 2018, 12:50 PM

Why the silence? Because a "vegan animal rights activist doesn't fit the agenda," states the kicker at Frontpagemag.com.

Lloyd Billingsley writes:

For the first time in its history, gunshots rang out at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, on Tuesday. Three people had been hit and the shooter was dead, but the motive for the attack remained mysterious. Even so, gun-control barker Sen. Dianne Feinstein was quick to weigh in.

"Only in America is a shooter unleashing gunfire in an office building a common occurrence," the California Democrat said in a statement. "Only in America are people evacuating the scene of a shooting with their hands on their heads is a familiar sight."

Like fellow Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Jackie Speier, Feinstein mentioned nothing about the shooter. The old-line establishment media were expecting a Republican male, an NRA member with a MAGA hat out to take down Hillary voters.

"As it turned out, the shooter was a woman and not a right-wing conservative type at all. In fact," Billingsley notes, "it wasn't even close."

Shapiro: Fake Media Go Nuts After Sinclair Anchors Read Anti-Fake News Message

By Rick Pearcey • April 2, 2018, 01:04 PM

Ben Shapiro writes at DailyWire:

Over the weekend, mass panic broke out among media types over Sinclair Broadcasting's use of local anchors across the country to push out a message about the prevalence of unvetted stories on social media.

After providing video of the Sinclair message -- and a transcript -- Shapiro offers this analysis:

Now, here's the thing: the actual text of this universally-issued missive has nothing to do with Trump. Go ahead. Check it. There's nothing about Trump there.

And complaints about one-sided news and "sharing of false and biased" news on social media have been absolutely common on the Left. If this same message were read by Brian Stelter on CNN, word for word, nobody would have any problem with it.

The media are simply assuming that the message is pro-Trump because Sinclair's owners are pro-Trump. But the ads aren't for Trump: they're a plea for viewers to keep watching rather than turning off the TV and using Facebook for news consumption -- the exact same plea made every day in the pages of The New York Times, at MSNBC, and in the halls of Congress by Democrats who claim that social media won Trump the election.

"The leftist media's universal rush to condemn Sinclair for the message is actually more lockstep political than Sinclair's message, which is lockstep but not political," Shapiro continues.

"Kimmel's tweet is actually more telling than it looks: all the statements about Sinclair being 'dangerous for our democracy' are just as collectivized and unanimous, and far more political, than Sinclair's top-down edict to read an apolitical message on air," Shapiro concludes.

By the way, a "majority of Americans -- 77 percent -- said traditional news outlets are 'fake news,' according to a Monmouth University poll published Monday," the Washington Times reports today.

The need for honest, objective reporting -- that is, real journalism -- is greater than ever.

NYTimes Bans "Killing the Deep State" From Bestseller List

By Rick Pearcey • March 30, 2018, 01:29 PM

Newsmax reports:

Jerome Corsi's red-hot new book "Killing the Deep State: The Fight to Save President Trump" is a runaway bestseller -- but you'd never know that from reading The New York Times.

"Killing the Deep State" debuted last week at No. 10 on the non-fiction hardcover list compiled by Nielsen BookScan, the book industry's only nationally recognized sales tracking list.

And yet, the influential New York Times Book Review inexplicably has not listed "Deep State" on its hardcover bestseller list, despite the fact it outsold many of the books that did make its list.

"For example," Newsmax continues, "going by sales reported by Nielsen, 'Killing the Deep State' should have landed at No. 4 on the Times' April 1 list of its Top 15 print hardcover bestsellers, right after Tara Westover's 'Educated' (Random House).

"But instead, the Times' No. 4 spot is held by 'I'll Be Gone in the Dark,' by Michelle McNamara, (Harper) even though it sold hundreds of copies less than 'Deep State,' did."

According to Newsmax, "'Killing the Deep State' also sold substantially more copies than the 11 other books on the list, including such titles as 'Obama' by Pete Souza, 'Leonardo Da Vinci' by Walter Isaacson, and 'Born a Crime' by Trevor Noah."

Submissive Sharia Canada: Police Investigating After Ex-Muslim Rips Qur'an

By Rick Pearcey • March 28, 2018, 10:56 AM

Robert Spencer writes at Frontpagemag.com:

Global News reported Sunday that "Peel Regional Police say they are investigating an incident as 'hate-motivated' after a woman can be seen on video at a Mississauga Islamic centre appearing to tear the pages of a Qur'an and putting the pages on cars while calling the religious text 'Satanic.'" So apparently now it's a crime in Canada to rip the Qur'an, and even to think ill of it.

This is not the most effective way to call attention to the exhortations to violence and hatred that are within the Qur'an. It allows the Muslims at the Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre, where this incident took place, to play the role of the victim, which they are doing to the hilt in the wake of this incident, and which we have seen that Muslim spokesmen are all too eager to play -- victimhood, after all, is currency in today's society. . . .

Is tearing up a book a crime? Is leaving paper on someone's car a crime? The only crime here is that the woman who did this, an ex-Muslim named Sandra Solomon, is protesting against a protected victim group that is eager to seize upon anything that it can portray as a "hate crime," so as to buttress its claims to be victims of widespread "Islamophobia," persecution and harassment, and thus in need of special consideration and accommodation.

"So -- Sandra Solomon was rude and obnoxious," Spencer continues. "She called the Qur'an a 'Satanic, evil book.' She said other Islamic books were 'garbage.'

"This is all reported in this article as if it is evidence of a crime," Spencer notes. "But is thinking negatively about the Qur'an and Islam really a crime in Canada? It may be: after the passage of the 'anti-Islamophobia' motion M-103, there is no certainty that Canada guarantees the freedom of speech."

O Khanada: "But disliking the Qur'an and Islam, and tearing the Qur'an, are actually only crimes under Islamic law," Spencer writes. "Is Canada now adopting Sharia blasphemy laws? We shall see, in the way Canadian authorities treat this case."

Tennessee Passes Bill: "In God We Trust" in Every Public School

By Rick Pearcey • March 26, 2018, 01:22 PM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews:

The Tennessee legislature has passed a bill that would require all public schools in the state to display the words "In God We Trust" in a prominent location. The governor, Republican Bill Haslam is expected to sign the legislation into law very soon.

The bill, HB 2368, was sponsored by state Rep. Susan Lynn (R). According to the website of the Tennessee General Assembly, the "National Motto in the Classroom Act" would require "each local education agency to display the national motto, 'In God We Trust,' in a prominent location in each school."

"Our national motto is on our money," said Rep. Lynn. "It's on our license plates. It's part of our national anthem. Our national motto and founding documents are the cornerstone of freedom and we should teach our children about these things."

"Placing the motto on American currency was established by Congress in 1864," Chapman reports. "

"The first coins with 'In God We Trust' inscribed on them were the one- and two-cent coins in 1864, "Chapman continues. "Since 1938, all U.S. coins bear the motto, according to the Treasury Department. Congress declared 'In God We Trust' as the nation's motto in 1956."

Evil Rules: Trump Just Kept One of Hillary Clinton's Darkest Campaign Promises

By Rick Pearcey • March 23, 2018, 05:49 PM

Peter Hasson reports at the Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans broke their promise to conservative voters by giving Planned Parenthood approximately $500 million in taxpayer funding in the omnibus spending bill that Trump signed into law on Friday.

Trump, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and other Republican leaders promised their voters for years that they would defund Planned Parenthood if given the chance to govern. . .

Fulfills Hillary Clinton's Promise: "The spending bill breaks Trump's campaign promise to his voters, but it does fulfill a promise that his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, made on the campaign trail in 2016," Hasson writes.

"Clinton promised to continue funding Planned Parenthood’s funding if elected president, while Trump assured his voters that he would defund the abortion giant if he won," Hasson reports.

According to CNSNews, "The latest annual report of Planned Parenthood, for 2016-17, shows that it performed 321,384 abortions in its fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2016."

Conditt was killed near the motel he was traced to by authorities using surveillance footage from a Federal Express drop-off store and cell phone triangulation technology, according to The Austin American-Statesman.

He died after fleeing the motel in a car, with police hot on his tail. He drove into a ditch, sparking the fatal confrontation . . .

Abortionist: I Cut the Vocal Cord So the Baby Can't Scream

By Rick Pearcey • March 20, 2018, 09:06 AM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

Dr. Leah Torres, an OB/GYN in Salt Lake City, Utah, said that when she performs certain abortions she cuts the vocal cord of the baby so "there's really no opportunity" for the child to scream. She also described herself as a "uterus ripper outer" because she performs hysterectomies.

Torres made her disturbing comments on Twitter on March 11, in response to a question.  

As the tweets show, @ZarbaNotZorba asked Torres about the aborted babies: "Do you hear their heartbeats when you lay down at night? Do you hear their screams?"

Torres replied, "No. You know fetuses can't scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there's really no opportunity, if they're even far enough along to have a larynx."

"I won't apologize for performing medicine," Torres says, according to CNSNews.

Perhaps lost on the good "doctor" is that killing patients or innocents is not medicine, it's an inhumane and monstrous barbarism that contradicts humanness and love.

Real physicians are aware, of course, that hysterectomies are performed to save women, not to kill them.

First, Torres rips apart the language, then she rips apart the human being. I ask you, O Executioner, how long have you been a member of the Mengele Society?

74% of Americans: Deep State Exists

By Rick Pearcey • March 19, 2018, 02:28 PM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart:

With the news that 74 percent of Americans believe a Deep State exists, a Monmouth University poll reveals just how little influence the disgraced national media have over public opinion and perception.

The Deep State, which is correctly defined in the polling question as "a group of unelected or appointed government officials who have too much influence in determining federal policy," has been a national issue since the rise of President Donald Trump. Ever since this conversation started, though, the media have been slashing away at the discussion as a fevered conspiracy ginned up by conservatives.

The media pushback has obviously failed because there is no notable partisan distinction in the poll. Monmouth reports, "This is a worrisome finding. The strength of our government relies on public faith in protecting our freedoms, which is not particularly robust. And it's not a Democratic or Republican issue. These concerns span the political spectrum."

Moreover, only 21 percent think the Deep State does not exist.

Just as concerning is this, from Monmouth: "Fully 8-in-10 believe that the U.S. government currently monitors or spies on the activities of American citizens."

Something's Wrong: Ohio Student Suspended for Staying in Class During National Walkout Day

By Rick Pearcey • March 16, 2018, 05:49 PM

Caleb Parke reports at Fox News:

An Ohio high school student said he tried to stay apolitical during the National Walkout Day over gun violence but was suspended for his choice to remain in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, going to study hall.

Jacob Shoemaker, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, said he didn't want to take sides in the gun-control debate consuming the country. If he went outside for the walkout, he said, he would be supporting gun control. If he stayed in the common area of the school, he said, he would be seen as supporting gun violence and disrespecting the 17 lives lost in the Parkland, Fla. High school shooting the month before.

Jacob had met with the school's principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the "students to express themselves."

"This left Jacob wondering if it was a memorial for the lives lost or a show of support for gun control," Fox News continues.

The senior student "decided, instead, to stay in class for about 20 minutes doing homework after his teacher and fellow classmates left and locked the door," Fox reports. But "when they returned, he was slapped with a suspension."

Trump Sanctions Russian Nationals for Meddling in 2016 Presidential Election

By Rick Pearcey • March 15, 2018, 12:53 PM

Saagar Enjeti reports at the Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump’s administration will sanction 19 Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 presidential election, multiple senior national security officials told reporters Thursday morning.

The sanctions will also target Russian nationals and entities for cyber attacks on the U.S. energy grid along with other U.S. based companies and persons.

"The sanctions include new authorities granted to the U.S. government under the Countering America's Adversaries Act, passed by Congress over the summer," the DC continues.

"Officials stressed that the announced sanctions are not the only actions the U.S. government will take in response to Russian activity," Enjeti reports. "The sanctions come as the U.S. joined the heads of European security agencies in calling out Russia for a nerve agent attack in the U.K."

Hillary Failing: Democrats Lose Patience After Clinton Comments Trashing White Married Women

By Rick Pearcey • March 14, 2018, 03:02 PM

Brooke Singman reports at Fox News:

Democrats who typically fall into the Clinton camp are trashing the two-time failed presidential candidate for singling out white female Trump voters, blaming their ballots cast in 2016 on "pressure" from male figures in their lives.

From Democratic senators to even her former campaign manager, there is a seeming consensus across the board that even "sugarcoating" her comments this week [doesn't] make them any easier to swallow.

"During former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's appearance in India over the weekend, she claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn't stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump," Singman writes.

"We do not do well with white men and we don't do well with married, white women," Clinton said," according to Singman. "And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should."

Disney Bigots Strip "Wrinkle in Time" of Christianity and It Bombs

By Rick Pearcey • March 12, 2018, 05:12 PM

John Nolte begins at Breitbart:

The trailer for director Ana Duvernay's A Wrinkle In Time looks awful -- empty and bloated. According to Rotten Tomatoes, most mainstream reviewers of the Disney flick, those predisposed to give a black, female director like DuVernay every benefit of the doubt, found the movie to be a diet of empty calories.

Thanks to alternative media, the reason for this might come from Disney's decision to strip Wrinkle of its central theme -- Christianity.

Nolte's concluding words:

Normal Americans do not care about skin color. We are over it and see no reason to celebrate something as middle-aged as "diverse casting." Christianity, however, is timeless.

Moreover, to remove Christianity from the movie, most especially when it is so integral to the original story, is not an act of inclusiveness, but rather another bigoted and hostile act from an increasingly provincial and small-minded entertainment industry.

Nancy Pearcey Speaking at Heritage Foundation

By Rick Pearcey • March 9, 2018, 01:37 PM

Nancy will be speaking on her new book Love Thy Body next week March 13 at the Heritage Foundation. The event will be live streamed.

From the announcement at the Heritage website:

Many people absorb pre-packaged media mantras on watershed moral issues without being aware of their hurtful real-world implications.

In Love Thy Body, best-selling author Nancy Pearcey goes beyond politically correct talking points to examine the dehumanizing secularist ethos that shapes critical moral and socio-political issues of our day.

Formerly an agnostic, she argues that secularism denigrates the body and destroys the basis for human rights.

In Love Thy Body, Pearcey sets forth a holistic and humane alternative available to all -- one that offers reality-oriented solutions that embrace the dignity of the human body and provide a sustainable basis for inalienable human rights.

The event is hosted by Becky Norton Dunlop, the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

SS University: Campus Fascism on the March

By Rick Pearcey • March 7, 2018, 05:42 PM

At the NYPost:

Another day, another campus fascist assault, this time aimed at squelching the speech of center-right Christina Hoff Sommers.

Sommers, an American Enterprise Institute scholar, argues that much of modern feminism betrays the movement's founding ideals. The lefty kids think that's violence.

She was invited to speak Monday about trigger warnings and safe spaces at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Ore. But the space didn't prove safe for her.

Read more about this ugliness and apparently pathetic "law" "school" here and then consider: "It's time for Congress to start withholding federal funds from colleges that don't adopt clear rules to protect free speech -- and punish those who disrupt it."

Campuses have become seedbed of fanaticism. If you don't want secularist-religious-political fanatics running our country -- and turning it into more of an intellectual, social, and ethical hellhole than certain parts of it already is -- then it really is time for people of good will and sound principles to step up and end the utter stupidity and inhumanity that passes for learning and education at far too many campuses across America today.

Lions 700, Christians 0: What Marx Got Right -- and What the "Religious" Get Wrong

By Rick Pearcey • March 6, 2018, 12:26 PM

I committed strategic analysis on my Facebook page yesterday. Here's proof:

Why do some people (who call themselves Christians, and I suppose at some time understood they're still human) insist on living inside a "spiritual" closet the Biblical information knows nothing about?

The knowable and publicly actionable Creator gives us fields, bodies, minds. He creates a world, not a closet.

No rock, plant, dog or human is supposed to live in there.

Marx said, "The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it." This emphasis is partly why the cultural Marxists are winning.

Despite having an inhumane philosophy, Marxists etc. nevertheless are out there changing the world. Their "change" encompasses people AND structures.

In contrast, many Christians are stuck inside their spiritual closets. There is much activity in there. And some of it is very good. But by and large too many are neglecting the still-operative Creator-endowed human-calling to change the world.

So instead of changing the world, they're changing the closet.

They're making "disciples" and then sticking those folks inside the closet to be spiritual until they die.

Perhaps a variety of religious opiates comforts them. Because it is painful for humans to try live inside a tiny, inhumane closet instead of running outside to incarnate the wholistic and liberating information given in the Biblical data.

Meanwhile, if I'm a secularist, I try to keep this strategic arrangement unnoticed and in play until the cows come home.

After about one quarter of this football game, the score's 700 to 0 -- it's a little bit easier to win when you're the only team on the field. It's not that difficult to defeat a team that stays in the dressing room. Even if it's deeply engaged in spiritual activities in there, with lots of goosebumps.

Yes, the secularists have their setbacks. The natives get restless, as it were.

But strategically -- culturally, politically, educationally, and across the society -- by and large, for Marxists and other secularists, it's the smell of victory in the morning.

"Stop Blaming White People" Sign Causes Stir at N.J. Post Office

By Rick Pearcey • March 5, 2018, 02:24 PM

Well, for one thing, the sign was way too uppity. As Taylor Tiamoyo Harris reports at nj.com:

USPS Postal Inspector Greg Kliemisch said Friday afternoon the sign, which read "March is national stop blaming white people month! Accept responsibility for your own bad choices. Hug a white person!," was put up sometime Thursday. It was taken down in the afternoon by employees, he said.

That message was way too uppity.

So what can we do?

Try this: "We could stop racism, evil, and whitey if we just outlawed and removed all pigmentative words from the human language. The UN could do it -- It really could!"

I posted the above on Twitter some 2 hours ago, and the UN has yet to act.  

I'll say this once and only once: I will not go back to the UN until they a) take up my Twitter recommendation for stopping racism and b) pass news laws to show they're serious about racism.

Think of it as word control. It goes without saying that letting a compassionate planetary government control our speech is worth it if just one person can be saved from ugly racism.

Don't make me go on CNN.

Gun Seller Calls Out Dick's Sporting Goods on AR-15s

By Rick Pearcey • March 2, 2018, 02:47 PM

Scott Morefield reports at the Daily Caller:

One gun seller isn't happy with Dick's Sporting Goods decision to agree to the demands of gun control advocates.

Palmetto State Armory, a Columbia, South Carolina-based firearms company, went on record in support of the Second Amendment on Thursday, issuing a statement calling out Dick's for referring to the AR platform as an "assault rifle" instead of the correct term — Armalite Rifle — and for caving to the demands of gun control proponents.

The Palmetto State Armory statement was a strong rejection of the propensity to blame the "tool" instead of the perpetrator, and included a call to "approach this negativity with humanity" with the hope that both sides can "have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing country better."

What follows is the Palmetto State Armory statement, as published at WCBD -- TV Channel 2 in Mount Pleasant, S.C.:

Palmetto State Armory [PSA] would like to go on record stating that we support the Second Amendment. While this may seem like an obvious statement, we as a company felt it necessary to make our opinion known to the general public. Palmetto State Armory also strongly supports the First Amendment which enables individuals to voice their opinions, even those in contrast with our own. We believe that a primary purpose of the Second Amendment is actually to protect the First Amendment.

In regards to the actions taken today by the CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods to no longer sell the AR-15 platform, while we do not agree with this decision, we recognize the fact that capitalism gives him the right to make this call. PSA however, does have an issue when misinformation is spread in the very next sentence by referring to the platform as an "assault rifle." AR stands for Armalite Rifle which pays homage to the company that originally created the platform.

To blame the rifle or a high capacity magazine for the actions of an evil man is illogical and is only applied when referring to firearms. Senseless acts of violence are a terrible plague on society that we all recognize we need to try and prevent as a community, but to blame a tool such as a firearm is at very best missing the point of the problem.

When a vehicle is used to commit an act of violence we as a society do not blame the car, we do not blame the speed, or the steering wheel, but rather the driver. It is our hopes that we can approach this negativity with humanity and both sides of the argument can come together and have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing county better.

"We are all in this together, and we all want the same thing," the Palmetto statement concludes. "Safety, happiness, and the 'American Dream'."

UTexas Students Launching "No Whites Allowed" Magazine

By Rick Pearcey • March 1, 2018, 01:51 PM

"A group of students at the University of Texas, San Antonio, plans to start publishing a No Whites Allowed (NWA) magazine," Mitchell Gunter reports at Campus Reform.

"White people are welcome to attend the launch party Thursday night, but while their support is 'appreciated,' the founders insist that 'it's a zine for QPOC and by QPOC [queer persons of color]'," according to Campus Reform.

Well, bless their little racist hearts. That's mighty "white" of them magazine starters, welcoming students who fail the QPOC color test and all. Will them white peeples hav to go out back to drink some water?

So what we have is a two-fer: Good old Racism (whites not allowed) and updated but still plain old-fashioned deviancy (queer persons).

Have you noticed how you can narrative this jive and cover a whole lotta sins by calling perversity diversity? Even more trans-rational magic drops when you hit a few licks about how this stuff boils down to "social constructs."

Smack in some "liberation" crack and, man, you've got yourself a cult that can go on forever and ever. Well, until you step outside and gravity hits. Confirming what all cultists know: "Facts are evil."

So if you want to embrace new and regressive forms of inhumane extremism beyond the KKK, the BBB (BlackBlackBlack) and the QQQ (QueerQueerQueer), certain students at the University of Texas at San Antonio may be just the folks for you.

Now there's no reason to get upset about this. It's just a little bit of cancer, and doctors are always saying that a little bit of cancer is no big deal.

16 Stupidest Comments About the Parkland Shooting Massacre (So Far)

By Rick Pearcey • February 28, 2018, 10:44 AM

John Nolte writes at Breitbart:

In the wake of the Parkland school shooting massacre, and in order to deflect away from the only answer to this contagion of school shootings (which of course is hardening school security), our media and the left in general have to manufacture one stupid hour after another in order to keep the focus on gun-grabbing.

The results of this cynical and desperate crusade have not only exposed these provincial elites as completely opposed to keeping our children safe, but as liars, and morons.

The Left's Strategic Objective in Their War on the NRA

By Rick Pearcey • February 26, 2018, 09:47 AM

Steven McCann writes at American Thinker:

The litany of major American companies severing their ties to the NRA continues to expand.

They are succumbing to the drumbeat of false accusations and hysteria ginned up by the left and its political arm, the Democratic Party, as well as the left's cohorts in the media.  

The NRA has been in leftists' crosshairs for the past two decades.  

However, the actual purpose of this targeting is far deeper than what the left proclaims to be its objective: the passage of "commonsense" gun laws and restrictions on gun ownership as an antidote to gun violence.
