Trump announces Venezuela’s socialist thugs have released American Josh Holt after two years in captivity
I hope we didn’t have to back off on the sanctions these lowlifes richly deserve, but we can deal with whatever price we paid when we learn what it is.

NFL OWNERS FINALLY LISTEN TO THE FANS

NFL OWNERS FINALLY LISTEN TO THE FANS
After a year of intense controversy concerning player protests during the National Anthem, the NFL finally decided to act. At the spring NFL owners meeting this week, a decision was made to require players to “stand and show respect” during the National Anthem if they are on the playing field. Otherwise, players will be given the option to remain in the locker room. If players or club personnel on the field show disrespect during the National Anthem by not standing, their team will be fined by the NFL.

Cellphone Misadventure – They Track You Anyway

Cellphone Misadventure – They Track You Anyway
I go to the “slug” line, a little busier than usual. I fumble for my iPhone and drop it carelessly in my pocket as a white non-descript SUV pulls up. The driver indicates that I sit behind her, a move against safety protocol. It is a very crowded back bench with a child’s seat and assorted junk stacked high, obviously a rushed attempt at cleaning this morning.  I listen to my usual podcast with my head-set on.

Let’s restore Constitutional protections on U.S. college campuses!

Let’s restore Constitutional protections on U.S. college campuses!
OAKLAND, California — For the radicals inhabiting the bureaucracy of American higher education, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is a threat. 

For years, these ‘educrats’ have built echo-chambers where speech codes, “safe spaces,” and inquisitions have replaced free speech and academic freedom.

The Biggest Threat To America’s Future is the Media

The Biggest Threat To America's Future is the Media
The United States of America is by far the most powerful nation on planet earth spending about as much on defense as the entire rest of the world. According to a report on globalization from Credit Suisse, the US has maintained its position as the world’s strongest military.  As an example,  although Russia has the most substantial number of tanks approx. 15,000 with the US coming in at around 8,000, the US tops the list in military aircraft with approx. 14,000, submarines at 72, and 11 aircraft carriers.

The Rousing of America: A Memorial Day Tribute

The Rousing of America: A Memorial Day Tribute
Memorial Day is a time for remembering those that died while serving our country. And so we shall. But this year, let’s also remember the multitude of Americans that have and are dedicating themselves to the restoration of this great nation…the people that have placed themselves on the front lines of a battle for our very existence from those that would destroy our country as founded - the Conservative writers, speakers, radio and TV news analysts, parents that monitor school curriculum, citizens that attend town hall meetings, veterans, and all the dependable voters who refuse to buy into liberal, anti-American theology.

Seat of the Antichrist Both Weak and Strong—How Does this Speak of Europe?

Seat of the Antichrist Both Weak and Strong--How Does this Speak of Europe?
Modern versions of eschatological thought concerning the appearance of the antichrist are more varied today than at any other time in the last century. The idea that modern Europe is the seat of the antichrist remains the most acceptable viewpoint among students and scholars of prophecy.

The idea of a revived Roman empire comes largely from Revelation 17, but the true identity of the antichrist’s kingdom is found in Revelation 17: 9.

Radical Dems Rising

Radical Dems Rising
Radical in-your-face left-wing candidates are gaining new electoral momentum in the already radical Democratic Party.

As Townhall’s Matt Vespa opines, far-left candidates have been making “a meal of the establishment, knocking off the more centrist candidates in primaries across the country.”

Hillary endorses Cuomo over Cynthia Nixon – is she headed for a ‘special place in hell?’
Let’s get one thing straight.  Hillary Clinton doesn’t give a damn about supporting women. In fact, she doesn’t really care about anything.  To the Clintons, every single issue is a talking point – an exploitable moment – and nothing more.

So, after a 2016 campaign that focused Hillary’s white-hot glare upon the idea that women absolutely must support female candidates, is anyone really surprised that she’s chosen not to do so herself? Of course not.
