Just how powerful is Pres. Trump’s North Korean ‘Armada’?

By Chris Carter

“We are sending an armada.”

Pres. Donald J. Trump’s declaration during a television interview on the Fox Business Channel signaled the deployment of Carrier Strike Group One to the Korean Peninsula in response to North Korea’s bellicose rhetoric and upcoming missile test. The Navy canceled a series of port calls for the strike group earlier this month and diverted the ships to the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against the hermit kingdom.

Trudeau, Trump deliver Earth Day present

By Tom Harris

During a week of contentious trade issues between Canada and the United States, it was gratifying to see that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump actually did agree on one point—climate change was not even worth mentioning in their official Earth Day statements.

Canada’s Bill C-16: Transgenderism and the Loss of Common Sense

By Martin Tampier

Bill C-16 is intended to add the terms “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the Canadian Human Rights Act. The Bill also “amends the Criminal Code to extend the protection against hate propaganda set out in that Act to any section of the public that is distinguished by gender identity or expression,” leading many to believe it will lead to a severe restriction of open public discourse on this topic once the bill is passed.

Dear Postmaster General

By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

Dear Postmaster General,

Please, have pity on me—I just can’t get the old terms out of my mind. Canada Post is now controlled by a president, CEO, and other highly-paid functionaries that certainly deserve the full support of the citizenry. Not to forget, the daily “health-exercises” of trekking to the community mailboxes to retrieve our dose of donation-seeking “Dear Friend/Supporter” letters and the like.

Wordplay: Where Are We . . . and Where Are We Going?

By Bob Christie

An essay in the opinion section of the NY Times dated 4/28/17 and titled “America, From Exceptionalism to Nihilism”, set me thinking and suggested the title I assigned to my essay in response, the one you are now reading.

DC swamp fights back: Jim DeMint reportedly out at Heritage

By Matthew Vadum

The great Jim DeMint is being given the bum’s rush at the Heritage Foundation for being a conservative in thought and deed, according to Politico. DeMint, formerly a Republican senator representing South Carolina, took over as Heritage president in April 2013.

Excellent: Trump reverses Obama order limiting oil drilling in Atlantic, Arctic oceans

By Dan Calabrese

It seems like months ago now - wait, it was months ago - that the one-foot-out-the-door Barack Obama was pushing through as many executive orders as he could in an attempt to lock in liberal policies after he left office. One of the worst, which we reported at the time, put severe limits on offshore drilling in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans - and there was some question as to whether President Trump would have the authority to reverse the orders once he took office.

Did Sean Hannity Unwittingly Tweet Out His Own Pink Slip?

By Judi McLeod

It’s not Fox News co-president Bill Shine fans should be the most worried about, but the ‘Fair and Balanced to President Donald Trump’ Sean Hannity.

In coming to the defense of Shine On Twitter today, Hannity warned that Shine’s dismissal dismissal would be the “End of FNC as we know it”.

ISLAMOPHOBIA: EMBRACE IT AND PASS IT ON!

By Dave Merrick

Some fears are good. Today we live in a world of tv-zombified simpletons who don’t recognize the wisdom that grew from the analogy of a youngster touching a hot stove. The punch line that flowered from that tiny proverb, of course, is that the child learned the hard lesson of not touching whatever experience warned him not to touch. Simple enough.

We’ve Reached the Bottom of the Effing Barrel, Baby!

By Judi McLeod

We’ve finally arrived to the very bottom of that desolate hell hole where saturation propaganda rules the chattering classes; nowhere to go but down in that fearful place where just to be safe from physical harm, everyone MUST demonstrate an all-consuming hatred for President Donald J. Trump.

Obama’s OFA Army presenting him as Current President

By Judi McLeod

America, you’ve got a problem: Organizing for Action (OFA)—the organization and community organizing project that advocates for the agenda of “FORMER” President Barack Obama—founded after Obama’s re-election, sent out an email blast this morning from “PRESIDENT Barack Obama, April 24, 2017.”  A poisonous play on words put into use by the group that seeks to mobilize supporters in favor of Obama’s legislative priorities; a lie getting around the world before the truth can put its pants on.

Barack Che Guevara Obama Back to Kick Off the Revolution

By Judi McLeod

The curse of Marxist Revolution is upon us with the return to the pubic spotlight of Private Citizen FORMER President Barack Obama at the University of Chicago where he will fill the ranks of the Revolution by luring university students into lifelong Community Organizer duty.

Trump’s America: 100 Days Later

Here we are folks, 100 days into Trump’s presidency. My NeverTrump friends are still itching for Trump to betray us so they can say, “I told you so.” Well, if Trump betrays us tomorrow, we are still winners; light years down the road to making America great again than where we would be had another Republican won.

SAF, OTHER GROUPS FILE FEDERAL LAWSUIT v. CAL. MAGAZINE BAN

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation, joined by several other groups and individuals, today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in California, challenging that state’s law prohibiting the possession, use or acquisition of so-called “large capacity magazines,” calling the ban “hopelessly vague and ambiguous.”

Netanyahu’s bold move against Europe

By Caroline Glick -- World

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu adopted a new strategy for managing Israel’s diplomatic relations with the West. Long in the making and increasingly urgent, Israel’s new strategy is very simple. Foreign governments can either treat Israel in accordance with international diplomatic norms of behavior, or they can continue to discriminate against Israel.

If they act in accordance with international diplomatic norms, Israel will respond in a like fashion. If they choose instead to discriminate against Israel and treat it in a manner no other democratic state is treated, Israel will abandon diplomatic convention and treat foreign governments as domestic critics.

Green Corporate Welfare is Growing

Here’s a warning for taxpayers already frustrated with corporate welfare directed to the aerospace and automotive sectors: selected energy companies are also increasingly in receipt of taxpayer cash, and the reasons offered up are often environmental in nature.

There we go: Bernie joins the Obama speaking-fee pile on

I’m not sure why this took so long.  Maybe the young, fresh, face of the Democrat Party, Bernie Sanders, is getting slow in his old age.  Whatever the reason, the old socialist coot of the Senate dawdled while Elizabeth Warren was letting everyone know how ‘troubled’ she was.  She was vexed, obviously, by former President Barack Obama’s decision to accept a whopping $400,000.00 for one Wall Street speech.

Dismantling the 9th Circuit

In Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution the text states that Congress has the authority to “constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court.”

In Article III of the U.S. Constitution, when referring to the inferior federal courts, it states that it is Congress who may from “time to time ordain and establish.”

The Left-Wing Takeover of Fox News

When Bill O’Reilly left Fox News he declared, “I am very confident the truth will come out and when it does I don’t know if you are going to be surprised, but I think you are going to be shaken as I am.” Some observers think he was referring not to the sexual harassment allegations against him, but to behind-the-scenes maneuvers by one of Rupert Murdoch’s sons, James, and his very liberal wife, Kathryn.

Obama scores another $400K speaking fee, and multi-millionaire Elizabeth Warren is ‘troubled’

Earlier this week, I pointed out the Barack Obama is a filthy one-percenter.  That’s nothing new, of course.  He’s been getting rich - by selling class warfare rhetoric and claiming the “rich don’t pay their fair share” - for years.  Still, considering what a big issue Hillary’s speaking fees were in the last election, I wondered when we’d hear from Bernie Sanders.

Democrats introduce bill to ban pastors from ministering to homosexuals

This story is a good example of how politicians use phrasing to disguise what they’re really doing, and the media play along because they support the obfuscation agenda. In some cases it’s because the media really are that dumb and gullible, but the gullibility usually stems from their natural trust of Democrats - so it all comes back to the fact that they share the same agenda.

TRUMP’S BIG TAX REFORM PLAN

The Trump administration unveiled an ambitious overhaul of federal tax laws yesterday that it is touting as the “largest tax cut for individuals and businesses in U.S. history.

Republicans on Capitol Hill seem cautiously optimistic about the plan even though it was immediately attacked by the hateful class-warfare-mongering Left.
