Democrat Filibuster of Judge Gorsuch

By Matthew Vadum

Desperate to placate their increasingly rabid far left-wing base, ethically-flexible Senate Democrats are planning to launch a filibuster against a Supreme Court nominee for the first time in a half-century and only the second time in American history.

In 2012, Blue Line News Week reproduced an article describing the sad state of backlogs in Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC). Sun Media reported: “A spokesman for the national police agency told QMI Agency there were 430,000 criminal records waiting to be filed into the Canadian Police Information Centre database, with more piling in every day. The backlog accounts for about 10% of the RCMP’s complete criminal record file of 4.3 million records.”

When Ted Koppel Was a Serious Thinker

By Cliff Kincaid

As someone who goes back decades with Accuracy in Media, I remember the days when Ted Koppel, then with ABC News and host of “Nightline,” would cover serious matters and treat his conservative critics with respect. So Koppel’s attack on Sean Hannity of Fox News was a shocker. Something has happened to journalism, and the problem is not with Hannity, it’s with Koppel.

RINOcare: Can’t anybody here play this game?

By BombThrowers -- David Hogberg

I couldn’t agree more with my one-time colleague Andrew Malcolm:

It’s worse than embarrassing. After seven long years of Obamacare opposition, Republicans couldn’t agree on what to repeal and what to substitute. Seriously?

How dare Nunes inform Trump and the people!

By Guest Column -- John Brogger

You legislators and the “news” media say “how dare Nunes inform Trump!”.  The answer to that comment is: “Trump is the person whom WE The People put in as the chief executive of this nation and whose job it is to help us to flush that filthy toilet called Washington DC which Trump politely calls the “swamp”.

Trump to sign order Tuesday reversing Obama climate policies

By Dan Calabrese

The good news, if you want to look at it that way, is that the left has suddenly decided there are limits on the executive authority of the president. Not the silly ones in the constitution, mind you. They have no use for those and never did, which is why they had no problem with any abuse of power by the lightbringer Obama.

Boo-Hoo to the in decline, whining Progressives!

By Joan Swirsky

It’s easy to deride the aberrant behavior of the leftists we’ve been unhappily witness to, both over the course of the presidential campaign and particularly since Donald J. Trump ascended to the presidency on November 8th, 2016. After all, they’ve never recovered from the Bush v Gore race of 2000!

Donald J. Trump: Punk Rock President

By Jim ONeill

[John Lydon—Johnny Rotten, “Sex Pistols”] said the unconventional outsider President Trump was a type of punk rock politician who was being unfairly attacked by the media establishment.

The tolerant Left assaults Trump supporters again

By Matthew Vadum

The tolerant Left assaulted Trump supporters again, this time in Huntington Beach, Calif.

Around 2,000 Trump supporters gathered for a march to show their support for the president.

NIMBYs, including Chris Wallace, Want Obama But not Ivanka in ‘Hood

By Judi McLeod

There’s more than one messy little detail that the New York Post doesn’t mention about the loud Ivanka Trump complaints from NIMBY neighbour Marietta Robinson and elitist Fox News talking head Chris Wallace.

Astute Canada Free Press readers report that Robinson is a registered Democrat;  was appointed by Barack Obama to a consumer protection agency;  is filthy rich; was awarded big money from a 2.2.  billion buck lawsuit related to a contraceptive device and did some UN work.

Liberals GIGO ‘Trudeau, the Licking Post’

By Judi McLeod

The image having sealed a message that was indelible,  Canadian Liberals called back their cardboard cutouts of ‘ain’t-he-handsome’ Justin Trudeau from being used for hundreds of “diplomatic events”.

No, the House Freedom Caucus isn’t a bunch of purists

The conservative House Freedom Caucus opposed the proposed “American Health Care Act” —a.k.a. RINOcare — because it was a lousy bill. It was a lousy bill because Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has a political tin-ear. Unfortunately, some pundits are going for the easier explanation that RINOcare failed because the House Freedom Caucus is ideologically rigid.

A Purgatory of a Transition

The period of transition of power from one leadership to another rarely limits to a few days following the elections and can be legally and morally limbo-like for the country.

Alabama congressman files two-page, one-sentence, ObamaCare repeal bill. Pass it, GOP cowards.

Sometimes, we wish you could see more of what goes on behind the scenes of Herman Cain HQ.  We have a lot of laughs, a lot of interesting discussions, and a fair amount of non-PC fun. You’d enjoy it. Then, there are other times when we’re glad you’re not around.  That’s usually when we’re bickering about legislation, and the concept of constitutionalism vs. “conservatism.” 

What A Westinghouse Bankruptcy Could Mean For U.S. Utilities

International news services now report that Japan’s Toshiba Corporation (9502.T) is preparing to make a chapter 11 bankruptcy filing for its Westinghouse Electric subsidiary as soon as this Monday, March 27. For most of our readers this news evokes little surprise. This is merely another chapter of a slow moving financial and accounting train wreck involving nuclear design and construction firm Westinghouse and its troubled Japanese parent, Toshiba. But like an old, leaky garbage scow there is much to clean up in its wake.

Sessions: Shield Illegals, Lose $4 Billion

The Trump administration is moving forward with cutting off federal law enforcement grants to local governments that shield illegal aliens, especially violent felons, from federal immigration authorities, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said yesterday.

Trumping the State Department

President Trump’s budgetary assault on the Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is long overdue.  He is forcing a rethinking that will benefit America and the world.

Here’s the one surveillance crime we know someone committed

It’s not the one you’re hearing about. All the media attention is on the notion that Russians “hacked the election” or something. Or they’re telling us again that there’s “no evidence” Trump Tower was wiretapped, even though the investigation isn’t over yet and we can’t possibly know that.

Socialist Health Care Disguised as Tax

It appears that Obamacare is here to stay. Those doctors who grew up with the conditioning notion of utopian “social justice” love it. Those doctors who hate the government intrusion and regulation into their medical practice hate it. The American public is split as well along those lines.

That’s it? They’re just giving up?

After seven years of telling us they would repeal and replace ObamaCare at the first opportunity, the Republican House worked on it all of 63 days before apparently deciding it could not do so - despite a Republican majority in the Senate (however small) and a Republican president prepared to sign the bill.

Are Your Eyes Mismatched?

Leo Durocher, the fiery win-at-all-costs baseball player, and later manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, once remarked, “I never question the integrity of umpires. Their eyesight? Yes!” Durocher would have questioned their eyesight more if he had known they were suffering from aniseikonia. So, should anyone care about this condition? And why do so many suffer this visual problem when it can be corrected?

Trump Showed Himself to Be More Responsible Than the Politicians on Both Sides of the Aisle

The simpletons who are gloating that the rejection of the Health Care Repeal and Replace legislation shows that Trump is no longer a master at the Art of the Deal seem to overlook one simple fact. Every deal with a chance of closing has to have two parties with open minds who WANT a deal. Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton got things done because they had negotiating partners.

Remaking Syria: A Military Update, the Diplomatic Situation, and the Israeli Angle

After more than six blood-soaked years, some half a million dead (mostly civilians), and millions of displaced people and refugees, there are signs that the military stage in the Syrian civil war is approaching an end. The war, which began as a civilian uprising, evolved into a war among jihadist organizations and then into a war among entities vying for regional dominance, bolstered by respective regional and international powers.

A Week of Diversity and Terror

On Saturday, Ziyed Ben Belgacem pays a visit to Orly Airport in Paris. He grabs a female soldier from behind and grapples for her rifle while holding a pellet gun to her head. He warns the other soldiers to drop their rifles and raise their hands.
