Liberalism must be destroyed

By Derek Hunter

If you thought conservatives could “make nice” with liberals, that “both sides have the country’s best interest at heart,” you were wrong. This week more of the con-jobs and character assassinations the political left is attempting have been exposed, and if it doesn’t make you realize the Liberal Industrial Complex will stop at nothing to protect itself and destroy the Trump administration, nothing will. The economic news was all good this week, though you’d barely know it if you watched cable news.

The tenured enemy in our midst

By Mike Adams:

In 2007, I sat down for a brief interview with an FBI agent. While we sat in a coffee shop in Wilmington, North Carolina, I outlined the case against Professor Julio Pino of Kent State University. My accusations were serious but irrefutable: Julio Pino was an Islamic jihadist who was actively conspiring with other terrorists seeking to murder American troops and innocent civilians. The FBI eventually got Pino. Unfortunately, it took them eleven years during which Ohio taxpayers were forced to pay the salary of a man who was openly planning to wage war on his own country.

 

When Pino finally entered a guilty plea in federal court last month, the charge was one count of making false statements to the FBI during an investigation dating back to 2016. The investigation concerned social media correspondences with a Facebook friend who identified himself as J.E.

Why Democrats are terrified of Kanye

By balScott Morefield

Turns out, when you’re a famous musician with 28 million Twitter followers people are going to sit up and pay attention to what you tweet, regardless of the topic. So when rapper Kanye West, a man who got over 41,000 likes for tweeting the word “decentralize,” lit the social media world on fire last week with a series of tweets seeming to support President Trump, the world was quick to take notice. Is one of the most successful recording artists of our generation actually ‘waking up’ to the folly of liberalism?

Has Kanye actually been red-pilled? On the one hand, conservatives understandably but a little hypocritically took an altogether different approach with Kanye than the “shut up and sing” imploration they typically would take were such a celebrity spouting off the usual liberal nonsense.

The vulgar goes mainstream

By Cal Thomas:

To be vulgar once earned societal disapproval, ostracism from polite company and -- in my grandmother’s era -- put a young person in danger of having his mouth washed out with soap. Today, vulgarities are now mainstream. People speaking in a way that “would make a sailor blush” are now on primetime television and words once frowned upon in polite society are now a part of what was once known as cordial conversation.

Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good

By Sammy J. Franklin

My thanks to a faithful reader who sent me the following column, which was titled “Life isn’t fair”!

It is reportedly written by 90-year-old Regina Brett of the Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio.

The writer stated, “to celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I’ve ever written.”

A look at the political spin cycle

By  Terry Paulson:

 

The new drama “Chappaquiddick” captures the agonizing series of choices that resulted in Senator Kennedy’s biggest scandal. Kennedy’s tragic accident on Chappaquiddick Island in the summer of 1969 resulted in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.

The drama’s focus is less on the accident and more on the Senator’s actions after leaving the scene of the crash and failing to report the accident for 10 hours. Yes, Senator Kennedy was a Democrat, but the movie is less about any one party. It’s more about the absence of character and poor judgment. It shows how protecting one’s reputation and minimizing political damage can cloud the importance of doing what’s right.

Don’t politicize sports, entertainments

By  Brent Bozell

 

Editor’s note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. One thing that defines liberals is their incessant desire to push political messages into every time and space. Their “compassion” and “inclusion” is perpetually shoved in our faces. That problem has metastasized under President Trump.

The urgency of their “resistance” is knocking down all the barriers. Don’t they know that most Americans don’t want politics invading every sphere? Can’t they see that audiences of sporting events and awards shows are suffering? They would plead that TV ratings for everything are down because fewer people are buying cable or satellite TV. But now we have evidence that this endless politicization is causing a backlash.

Trump isn’t betraying our farmers

By  Dennis Avery

 

Democrats in farm states are busily warning their rural neighbors that President Trump betrayed them with his tariff pressures, which may especially impact U.S. farm exports to China. China has imposed a 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans, wheat, beef, pork and some other food products. Will this ruin .

American farm prices? Be of good cheer. The world prices for soybeans and beef are set by global supply and demand. Soybeans and beef are essentially commodities, not unlike oil. It doesn’t really matter whether China buys American soybeans or Brazilian beans because both those countries are willing sellers. If one sells to China, the other will sell to the other countries that also import to meet their sizeable food import needs

Yes, they are coming for your guns

By Bruce Bialosky:

 

The anti-gun movement has held out the falsehood that they are not coming after people’s guns as a central core of their effort to hide their existential goal. The lid was blown off that charade when a 97-year-old man who previously occupied a position at the top level of our country (retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens) advocated for the abolition of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the paper of record – The New York Times. Before anyone jumps off a cliff about this proposition,

let me state who I am on this issue. I am not a gun owner. I am not a member of the National Rifle Association nor any other group that supports gun rights. I was fairly ignorant about essential elements of guns and gun owners until I did a series of columns on the subject and became knowledgeable about the subject of guns through extensive research and interviews.
