Michigan takes female genital mutilators to court

On July 19, U.S. District Court Judge Bernard Friedman denied bail for Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, a physician, as the Detroit Free Press reported, “accused of cutting the genitals of two Minnesota girls as part of a religious procedure.”  According to the court, Nagarwala may have subjected as many as 100 girls to the procedure over the last 12 years.

Prosecutors also accuse co-defendant Dr. Fakhruddin Attar of letting Nagarwala use his clinic for the genital mutilation, with his wife Farida Attar “holding the girls’ hands during the procedures.”

Alberta’s Child Advocate Plays the Tattered Residential School Card

The Government of Alberta’s Child Advocate, Del Graff, is all over the news again. Del and his 65 underlings at the Office of Child and Youth Advocate (OCYA) recently reported on three Aboriginal children who died shortly after being returned to their parents following time in government care.

Del’s main beef is that the Government isn’t heeding recommendations spelled out in his 2016 report: Voices of Change: Aboriginal Child Welfare in Alberta.

The report is read-worthy. After a brief intro it launches into a denunciation of the long since discontinued residential school system; to wit:

Mazen Malik: Oregon state official has terrorist-supporting background

Most Oregonians know Mazen Malik, a senior economist at the Oregon State Legislature, from his occasional appearances touting the alleged tax revenue bonanza that marijuana sales have brought to Oregon. But many likely do not realize that in the 1980s, Mazen Malik was an active supporter of Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), an anti-Israel organization whose horrific terrorist acts have resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent people.

It is important to understand that communists worked with radical Islamic organizations just as they do today. This unholy alliance has been described as the Red Green Axis and is discussed in the film, the Enemies Within.

Schumer announces Democrat strategy for Healthcare - as promised, single-payer is ‘on the table’

Last week I shared a video of Bob Casey suggesting that a single-payer bill could appear in “the next couple weeks.” As I said then, this was always the plan. A single-payer system - not unlike the one that just handed Charlie Gard a death sentence - is the ultimate goal of every anti-constitutional leftist.  It’s the glorious panacea through which they can implement all their social programs, limit your options, tremendously expand taxation, and punish you for exercising your rights.

It’s the socialist Holy Grail.

Sen. David Perdue: Trump is doing exactly what he told the American people he would do

So far, President Trump is doing exactly what he told the American people he was going to do. Job one is to get the economy going again. Georgians and Americans elected him as President of the United States because he is an outsider to the Washington system. As an outsider, he can break the gridlock in Washington and begin to get real results. His goal was clear: Make America Great Again, and the results we have seen so far are nothing short of encouraging.

After eight years of failed policies and weak leadership abroad, there is still much work to do to reengage with the rest of the world. Looking back over the last six months, it’s easy to see our economy is in the early stages of a potential turnaround.

Resist all you want, liberals: We’re focused on results, results, results

The first six months of accomplishments by the Trump administration are impressive, but you would not know it listening to the liberal media and the Democrats.

As the liberal media are obsessing over the resignation of Sean Spicer, they are missing the big point. As he said in his interview on Sean Hannity’s show on Friday, his resignation opens the way for a fresh start with the media. As Dan pointed out, his departure is not going to impact one iota of what the president is trying to do, which is a lot.

Turns out police find a way to charge those awful kids who mocked the drowning man after all

You can’t watch this and not feel rage and indignation at what you’re seeing and hearing. It’s horrible beyond words:

And it was only natural once people saw the video that they wanted the teens arrested and charged with . . . something. They certainly deserve it. The problem, though, was that it wasn’t clear they actually broke any laws. There’s no law against being a jerk, and there’s also no law requiring you to try to rescue someone when they’re in trouble (except perhaps in Latham, Massachusetts). You’re not even required to call 911. It’s the right thing to do, obviously, but it’s not against the law not to.

Message to Republicans: In War there is No Substitute for Victory

Who would have ever thought that the United States could face a coup attempt against its duly elected President?  But for all intents and purposes that’s what’s going down.  It’s a derivative of an old-fashioned, third world banana republic mob-style coup that is brewing against Donald Trump.

It matters not that there is a lack of substance to the charges of Russian collusion.  That a charge of treason has been bandied about by Democrat Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine

to justify impeachment of Trump shows both madness and utter ignorance of the Constitutional definition of treason. It also begs the commonsense question of how a leader of the opposition party who lost thinks he can resurrect credibility by applying the extreme charge of treason to a man whose “America First” patriotism is so incontestable that even cynics don’t doubt it.

The Truth is a Battle of Perception

“In the Name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…” 

Blessing myself, with these words and signs in Christian prayer, I began my speech at a Tea Party Rally in Jackson, New Jersey in the summer of 2009. On an interesting note, not knowing whether or not I was Preacher up on that stage, nearly half of the 3,000 or so patriots in that open field, blessed themselves along with me.

I went on in prayer saying, “Dearly Beloved! We are gathered here today to remember the United Sta…tes…Oh Wait! What is this I’m reading? We seem to be having technical difficulties with my teleprompter…excuse me…Ah! Ah!...”

GM considers pulling the plug on the Chevy Volt

The Chevy Volt was unveiled in 2010 to great fanfare. Politicians hailed it. The media gushed over it. The first electric car manufactured domestically, it was instantly a cause celebre, and it was hailed as part of the resurrection of General Motors.

There was one problem, though. The public was never excited about the Volt. With a price tag of more than $40,000, even government rebates of $7,500 weren’t enough tto convince many people to buy a Volt. It drives well enough and it’s true that you don’t have to put much gas in it (although you do need some in reserve just in case), but that type of price tag isn’t within reach for most people, and GM seems to have forgotten that electricity isn’t free either.

Rooting out vote fraud

Judging by the unhinged reaction this past week to the first public meeting of President Trump’s blue-ribbon voter fraud panel, progressives are terrified.

They’re fearful that these election experts are actually going to do the job they’ve been given — uncovering the extent to which the nation’s voter rolls are vulnerable to fraudulent activity. How else to explain the panic and shots fired before the commission even met?—More…

Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.—More…

WORDS OF WISDOM TO PENNY

I am writing these words today as if I almost know you, yet I have only had the privilege of meeting you once.  Although we may be a few generations apart and many miles away,  we do share a very unique thread which intertwines between us.

You are now standing where I once stood some 50 years ago.  Much has changed since then but the simple words of truth and wisdom never will.

You are still so very young and yet you have achieved so much in such a relatively short time. This is all quite exciting and satisfying however with this meteoric rise in the public eye comes with an inconvenient cost. I have a sense that despite your brilliant successes you do not wish to be arbitrarily placed on a pedestal.  This was not, I’m sure,  part of your plan.  I can totally relate to this unease at being forced into the limelight especially at your age.

State Dept. to Turkey: ‘Strong Concerns’ over Release of U.S. Troop Locations in Syria

A U.S. Department of State spokesperson said on Friday that it has raised “strong concerns” to Turkey over its state-run news agency’s release of data showing the location of U.S. troops leading military efforts against Islamic State terrorists in Syria.

“We’ve raised our strong concerns with publication of this information with senior Turkish government officials, as we do any time we have concerns about risks to US military or civilian personnel,” the spokesperson told Breitbart News when asked about the Anadolu news agency’s published list of U.S. military bases and outposts.—More…

Tomorrow marks 100th anniversary of introduction of the federal income tax

OTTAWA, ON: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) noted that the proposal for a ‘temporary’ War Tax Upon Incomes (which later became the Income Tax Act) was first introduced in the House of Commons by Conservative Finance Minister Sir William Thomas White on July 25, 1917, exactly 100 years ago tomorrow.

“Sir White brought in the income tax to pay for the cost of World War I but unfortunately Canadians have been stuck with it ever since,” said CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick. “His original 11-page law with a four per cent tax rate has ballooned into today’s 3,100-page behemoth.”
