THE FILM THE LEFT TRIED TO ABORT

THE FILM THE LEFT TRIED TO ABORT
After a mighty struggle, the film, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, finally opened in movie theaters nationwide on Oct. 12.

Like the effort to prosecute a real-life monster, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the effort to make the movie was hindered at every turn because the Left studiously avoids doing anything that might call into question abortion on demand, its holiest of sacraments. Indeed, support for unrestricted access to abortion unites the entire Left, from labor unions to Alinskyite community organizations to environmentalist groups to race-baiting legal defense funds. Come down against it, and you’re an outcast with no future, as former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), once an ardent pro-lifer, painfully discovered before he switched sides.

Trump Blasts Kavanaugh Impeachment Effort
President Trump blasted the burgeoning effort among left-wing activists and Democrat lawmakers to impeach newly sworn in Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh and declared that the fake sexual allegations and smears made against him were “brought about by people that are evil.”

Under siege by howling leftist mobs, Vice President Mike Pence, who was presiding over the Senate, declared the nomination of Kavanaugh approved Saturday by a vote of 50 to 48.


TRUMP’S FIGHTING SPIRIT GETS KAVANAUGH CONFIRMED

TRUMP’S FIGHTING SPIRIT GETS KAVANAUGH CONFIRMED
After the dirtiest, nastiest Supreme Court confirmation battle in American history, President Trump’s pick, Brett Kavanaugh, was finally confirmed to the high court and sworn in as its ninth justice on the weekend, cementing for years what could be an ideologically conservative majority on the court.

This means that in under two years in power President Trump has succeeded in putting two apparently originalist justices on the Supreme Court, a font of outrageous big-government activism where unelected black robed-politicians have for decades imposed unconstitutional left-wing monstrosities like Obamacare and so-called affirmative action on the American people, policies that voters have rejected at the polls.


“A VERY SCARY TIME FOR YOUNG MEN”

A VERY SCARY TIME FOR YOUNG MEN
President Trump lashed out at left-wingers this week, declaring that the out-of-control leftist-manufactured controversies raging around Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court prove it is a “very scary time for young men.”

It has been true for a while that men accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment on college campuses are tried by kangaroo courts. In fact, railroading students accused of such things was official policy in President Obama’s Department of Education. But now the same mob mentality has taken over the nation’s capital.


Jeff Flake’s Confirmation Circus

Jeff Flake's Confirmation Circus
The Senate Judiciary Committee may have approved the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh on a straight party-line vote Friday, but the confirmation process will not wrap up until the end of the week at the earliest.

And Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court remains in doubt. If Kavanaugh fails to be confirmed, the proximate cause will be the treachery of Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.).


Avenatti’s Freak Show

Avenatti’s Freak Show

On the eve of a historic Supreme Court confirmation hearing, two more women have materialized out of thin air to accuse President Trump’s high court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual improprieties – bringing the total number of accusers to four.

Even more eleventh-hour character-assassination attempts may be coming given the enraged Left’s determination to prevent the judge’s ascent to the Supreme Court at all costs. Whether the claims are true is irrelevant to these people. Only the seriousness and luridness of the charges matter as they get aired over and over again in the 24-hour news cycle. They don’t care about the victims they create. Only the headlines.


Keith Ellison Accuser Claims He’s Running A Smear Campaign Against Her

Keith Ellison Accuser Claims He’s Running A Smear Campaign Against Her

The former girlfriend of Congressman Keith Ellison is accusing her fellow Democrats of isolating her and attempting to silence her for speaking out about the domestic violence she claims to have suffered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend.

Democrats say they believe women when they come forward with claims of abuse inflicted on them by powerful men. But this claimed belief in women isn’t unconditional. When a woman accuses a powerful Democrat, all bets are off.


THE LEFT’S SHOW TRIAL FOR KAVANAUGH

THE LEFT’S SHOW TRIAL FOR KAVANAUGH
Two more women accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of dubious improprieties materialized out of thin air late Sunday, throwing Senate Republicans’ hope of finally confirming the Supreme Court nominee this week even more into doubt.

The new allegations came yesterday amid reports that Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tentatively scheduled a hearing for this Thursday to take testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, 51, who claims Kavanaugh, 53, sexually assaulted her decades ago when he was a high school student. Suspiciously, Ford can’t –or won’t— say when or where the alleged incident happened and can provide few details.


KAVANAUGH BATTLE BREWS

KAVANAUGH BATTLE BREWS
The Left’s continuing success in delaying a confirmation vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court reveals its malicious agenda to block the nominee from sitting on the high court when its new term begins Monday, October 1.

Democrats had Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s never-credible accusations of sexual abuse—including possible attempted rape—in hand way back in the summer. They deliberately refused to bring up the allegations, as weak and ridiculous as they are, at Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearings because they didn’t want to have a rational discussion.


REDACTION RESISTANCE: ALIVE AND WELL

REDACTION RESISTANCE: ALIVE AND WELL
Washington bureaucrats are already reportedly resisting President Trump’s sweeping good-government transparency order this week directing intelligence agencies to declassify certain documents from the long-running investigation related to the Left’s unproven electoral collusion conspiracy theory involving Trump and Russia.

EXPOSING THE DEEP STATE PLOTTERS
President Trump’s sweeping order this week directing intelligence agencies to declassify documents from the more than 18-month-old investigation related to the Left’s electoral collusion conspiracy theory involving Trump and Russia may shed light on what really happened in the 2016 election.

In an interview with Hill.TV yesterday, the president said he ordered the mass declassification to show the public that the FBI investigation of the conspiracy theory began as a “hoax.” Exposing it could be one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency, he said.


FEDS INDICT NEW MEXICO TERRORIST TRAINERS

FEDS INDICT NEW MEXICO TERRORIST TRAINERS
The five accused Muslim terrorists arrested in rural New Mexico near the Colorado state line this summer after an alleged school-shooter terrorist training facility was raided Aug. 3 were indicted last week on weapons and conspiracy charges by a federal grand jury.

This is the case in which five adults, including Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, were arrested after authorities found 11 hungry, filthy children living in squalid conditions in a terrorist training compound in Amalia, Taos County, a remote part of New Mexico. The children were reportedly being trained to commit school shootings. The remains of a three-year-old disabled boy, since identified as Wahhaj’s son, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, were discovered on the property which was filled with weapons. The five individuals faced state-level child abuse charges but those were thrown out after local prosecutors failed to conduct preliminary hearings within state-imposed deadlines. The local district attorney said the charges will soon be refiled.


GOP GIVES UP ON REPEALING OBAMACARE

GOP GIVES UP ON REPEALING OBAMACARE
Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress.

Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins, but make no mistake: these creatures of Washington want to keep it in place. This is the Republicans’ dirty secret.


SERENA WILLIAMS, A PATHETIC MELTDOWN AND VICTIMHOOD

SERENA WILLIAMS, A PATHETIC MELTDOWN AND VICTIMHOOD
Left-wingers say no criticism of tennis player Serena Williams should be allowed for her high-profile meltdown Saturday at the 2018 women’s U.S. Open final because she is a double-minority—female and black—and should therefore be immune to criticism.

National Organization for Women (NOW) President Toni Van Pelt launched into a fact-free rant.


TRUMP VS. SLEEPER CELL OP-ED

Sep 7, 2018 — Matthew Vadum

Trumo, NY Times
President Trump is absolutely right to be furious about the treacherous New York Times op-ed by a fifth-columnist in his administration trashing his leadership and portraying him as a feebleminded would-be dictator.

The essay titled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” is vicious Trump-hating propaganda by a cowardly member of a sleeper cell in the White House. Nothing less. Nothing more.


TRUMP BLASTS NIKE FOR KAEPERNICK CAMPAIGN

TRUMP BLASTS NIKE FOR KAEPERNICK CAMPAIGN
President Trump slammed sports shoe maker Nike for sending a “terrible message” by spotlighting the failed, America-hating football player, Colin Kaepernick, in its 30th anniversary “Just Do It” advertising campaign.

A new Nike ad features a close-up photograph of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s face alongside text reading, “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.” Kaepernick may not have the marketing power of say, Che Guevara, but he does appeal to younger members of the angry Left, which is what Nike is gambling on.


Trump Moves to Freeze Federal Employee Pay

Trump Moves to Freeze Federal Employee Pay
President Trump used the Labor Day holiday to remind Americans that over-privileged, overpaid federal government employees don’t need a pay hike, while he in effect made the case why we need to abolish government unions in the United States.

The president also used the holiday to fight back against attacks by Richard Trumka, the radical left-wing head of the massive labor federation AFL-CIO, which represents hundreds of thousands of federal employees.


Conservative Revolt at—Facebook?

CONSERVATIVE REVOLT AT – FACEBOOK?
Conservative Facebook employees fed up at the social media behemoth’s oppressive, intolerant corporate culture have created an internal group to fight back.

It’s no secret that social media platforms have been suppressing and marginalizing ideas they don’t like—and the ideas they don’t like are overwhelmingly of the conservative and patriotic variety.

But this new revolt is significant because internal dissent is almost unheard of at Facebook. When Google engineer James Damore wrote an internal memo arguing that forced diversity at the company wasn’t a positive thing and that so-called underrepresentation of women in the technology field probably wasn’t related to sexism, Google fired him.


Smoking Gun Memo Laid Out Left’s Assault On Conservatives

Smoking Gun Memo Laid Out Left's Assault On Conservatives
[To learn more about the Freedom Center’s recent victory over the Left’s censorship attempt, and its call for a coalition across party and ideological lines to defend free speech, click here.]

A strategy memo compiled by George Soros-funded activist groups as President Trump was being inaugurated last year foretold and seemed to lay the groundwork for many of the political difficulties Trump now faces and the politics-related strife now roiling the nation.

The memo takes on a heightened importance as the politically-driven censorship of conservatives by the gigantic, unregulated social media corporations controlled by the Left is moving into high gear while the crucial midterm congressional elections of Nov. 6 approach.


STALKER OF TURNING POINT USA ARRESTED

Aug 27, 2018 — Matthew Vadum

Creepy leftist Alexander Micah Cohen enters not guilty plea
A Chicago-area leftist has entered a plea of not guilty to threatening to “shoot” and “blow up” a Turning Point USA-sponsored conference of conservative high school students that took place a month ago in the nation’s capital.

The charge came after foul-mouthed Antifa demonstrators assaulted Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk and his communications director Candace Owens while they were trying to enjoy breakfast August 6 at a Philadelphia restaurant.
