Kick North Korea Out of the U.N.

Wall Street Journal

Calls by the United Nations Security Council to isolate North Korea haven’t stopped Kim Jong Un from launching missiles over Japan or threatening America and its allies. This week President Trump told the General Assembly that the United States is prepared “to totally destroy North Korea” in the event of an attack. If the international community is serious about isolating the Kim regime, there’s a less drastic option not yet tried: expel North Korea from the U.N.

Since the U.N.’s founding in 1945, no member state has ever been expelled. The U.N. charter does, however, provide for eviction: “A Member of the United Nations which has persistently violated the Principles in the present Charter may be expelled from the Organization by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.”

Graham-Cassidy is far from a full ObamaCare repeal, but everything in it is good

There’s no question we’ve fallen a long way from the heady days of, er, January 2017, when we thought we were going to get a quick repeal of ObamaCare. Republican Congresses never fail to fail, and it should not be forgotten that the latest failure to repeal ObamaCare was very much the work of Lindsey Graham’s best buddy.

But here’s what I believe about legislation: You don’t vote for something just because it can pass, but you don’t oppose something just because it isn’t everything you’ve ever wanted. If the country would be better off with a bill’s passage - even if only a little better - then you vote for the bill. If you’ve left problems unsolved, then it’s your job to come back later and solve the other problems too. But opposing the solution of Problem A just because Problems B through Z are not being solve simultaneously makes no sense. Solving Problem A is better than not solving Problem A, so solve Problem A.

Build the Wall Build the Wall Build the Wall

President Trump’s speech before the UN was interesting in many ways.

He put the multinational globalists on official notice that he has their number and as far as he’s concerned their number is up. He let the UN bureaucrats know that their red tape parades have got to be reined in. He called socialism what it is, a failure. He held up capitalism as the means for raising people out of poverty and ignorance. He made the case for sovereignty both national, personal, and individual freedom. He pointed out that the US carries a disproportionate load for the support of the UN and that this has got to change or they might be looking for spare change if America cuts its funding for what has become an anti-American debating society. In other words, he let the world know that as far as his administration is concerned from now on it’s going to be America First.

Police report: Multiple women accused jailed IT staffer, Imran Awan, of battery, abuse, wiretapping

We’re learning more about Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s favorite IT staffer, Imran Awan, and none of what we’re hearing is good.

You’ll recall that Wasserman Schultz refused to fire Awan, even though she knew he was at the center of a a criminal investigation by the FBI and U.S. Capitol Police. According to the former DNC Chairwoman, he needed protection because he was the target of a racist, bigoted, right-wing witch-hunt. Finally, after he was arrested while trying to flee to Pakistan, she reluctantly sent him packing.

Revisiting Orwell to Understand our Times

Just two or three generations ago, most Americans understood that George Orwell’s classics Animal Farm and 1984 were written to explain how freedom is lost to totalitarianism and the intolerance that accompanies it. Big Brother, a term that many people still casually use to describe an all-knowing governing authority, comes right out of 1984. In the society that Orwell describes, all citizens are continually reminded that “Big Brother is watching you,” by way of a constant surveillance through the pervasive use of “telescreens” by the ruling class.

Orwell’s warnings about totalitarianism written in novel form in Animal Farm and 1984 came shortly after Freidrich Hayek’s Road to Serfdom was published at the end of World War II. But it took the shocking revelations from books on Nazism and Soviet Communism, by scholars like William Shirer and Robert Conquest in the 1960s to really make Orwell relevant to the masses educated in American public schools.  And it was not just an academic exercise, insofar as Stalin was at that time brutally crushing all resistance, enforcing the Soviet model of totalitarian control on East European countries that became satellite states of Moscow.

Russian Election Collusion Confirmed

Proof of “Russian Collusion” in American elections generally ignored by the mainstream media up to the present day comes in the words of Vladimir Putin to RT Russia TV in 2012.

That’s when Putin said Obama was “an honest person who really wants to change much for the better.” (Reuters, Sept. 6, 2012)

Another prominent Russian was also on the public record for urging Americans to vote Obama back in the presidential race of 2012.

It’s looking like Obama and Comey wire-tapped Trump Tower after all, and that’s just the start

Here’s a question to ponder about the “Russia interfered” story that has thus far produced nothing of substance to justify its own existence: Was the whole thing contrived in order to justify a Democratic administration wiretapping a Republican campaign?

When the FBI wants to wiretap someone, it has to go to a judge under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and present reasonable cause to believe that someone is acting as an agent of a foreign government. Paul Manafort, who briefly served as chairman of the Trump campaign in 2016, has had lots of business dealings with Russia over the years, so if you wanted to catch him talking to Russians, it wouldn’t be hard to do so.

Major League Baseball…extend the protective netting so this doesn’t happen to another child

If you read this column regularly you know that I am a big baseball fan. I go to a lot of games. This year alone I’ve attended 30 Detroit Tigers games in addition to another eight minor league games. In my lifetime I’ve gone to hundreds of ballgames.

And I’m going to confess something to you: I don’t like to sit close to home plate, especially not in the area right behind the dugout. Why? Because I’m terrified of the sort of rocket line-drive foul ball that last night struck a two-year-old in Yankee Stadium. It sounds like she is going to be OK in the long run, although everyone is being somewhat cryptic with the information they’re releasing.

Pelosi: illegal immigrants ‘did a great thing for our country’ by bringing their DACA kids here

They broke our laws, entered the country illegally, in most cases use falsified documents or stolen social security numbers to obtain housing and employment, and created an immigration crisis that’s currently dividing the nation.  But ignore all that.  According to Nancy Pelosi, they’ve done us a huge favor!

You see, illegal immigrants brought their kids here - you’ll know them better as “dreamers” - and they’re just wonderful. If it wasn’t for their illegal-immigrant parents, DACA recipients wouldn’t be here, so Pelosi is grateful to illegal parents.

As she puts it, they “did a great thing for our country” by violating U.S. borders:

Nancy Pelosi meets her base

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was confronted by an angry mob of protesters at a town hall-type event on Monday. Along with Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), she organized the public meeting to promote the DREAM Act, the long-stalled proposed legislation grants generous benefits to illegal aliens. They were suddenly confronted with dozens of loud, well-organized protesters apparently angry that she had dared to negotiate with President Trump about the future of Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, the DREAM Act, and border security issues.


SEXUAL REVOLUTIONARIES AND CULTURAL MARXISTS INFILTRATING OUR SCHOOLS

“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”—G.K. Chesterson

Concerned parents of school-aged children know that sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists are destroying our public schools and universities. But Charter schools were thought to be safe from these dark ideological radicals.

Sexual revolutionaries and cultural Marxists believe that there are no differences between men and women, and that “male” and “female” are merely social constructs.

WINNING!: The “Dreamers” Become the Democratic Party’s Nightmare

During the past week, I pressed through the upset over the purported reports that Donald Trump was bending, weaving, contorting, caving (whatever) on amnesty. Was he going to strike a deal with the Democrats to get border security, then grant legal status to illegals fleeing the shadows of Obama’s DACA? Based on Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s latest headache—angry DREAMers hijacking her press conference on immigration—I am convinced that Trump played the Democrats like a mariachi band from hell—again.

Hillary says she’s like ‘Paula Revere’ - sounding the alarm about how Russia cost her the election

Last night Hillary Clinton brought her desperate, delusional, blame game to the Stephen Colbert show so that ‘non-deplorables’ could give it the praise she feels it deserves.  The interview was a saccharine, fawning, adulatory affair that should make any sane person feel embarrassed for the show’s host. While there, she once again dragged out her list of reasons that she was denied her rightful ascension. Misogyny, voter suppression, and James Comey all got shout-outs before she lowered the boom on her favorite target: The Russian Boogeyman.

“I believe so strongly they believe they succeeded in messing with our democracy and I just can’t abide that.”

Trump: socialism is for losers

President Trump said so many good things in his speech to the United Nations.

Left-wingers’ heads must have exploded when he spoke this bit of truth to power:

The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.

Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for action. All people deserve a government that cares for their safety, their interests and their well-being, including their prosperity.
