Two incidents, occurring almost eight decades and thousands of miles apart, provide us with an important lesson about the challenging times in which we live. In the early morning hours of March 17, 1938, bespectacled Soviet economist Nikolai Kondratiev, 46, was marched in front of a firing squad near Moscow and shot. The unimposing Kondratiev […]
She endorsed him, and he paid respects at her funeral, but it appears that President Donald Trump hasn’t read Phyllis Schlafly’s book, The Supremacists: The Tyranny of Judges and How to Stop It.

The controversy occurred when Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump, said on-air that people should buy Ivanka Trump’s merchandise. The suggestion came after Nordstrom said it would drop Ivanka Trump’s merchandise from their stores, but it could violate ethics laws as government officials should not endorse buying merchandise.
In an interview with Yahoo, Syria’s leader Bashar Assad said that American troops are welcome in Syria if the American government agrees to fight “terrorists.” It begs the question, is this remark mocking President Obama’s failed ‘red-line’ on Syria’s civil war?
A good take by Dan McLaughlin at National Review on why the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Trump administration.
Illegal immigration is out of control, isn’t it? Los Angeles has the second-most number of illegal immigrants living in the area and is behind New York City (1,150,000). The thing is, this analysis comes from the Los Angeles Times; hardly a neutral or right-wing outlet.
From Heat Street: The study was carried out with data from Germany, and published in the German tabloid BILD – so results may vary compared to other Western activists. Nonetheless – the findings ring true: 84% are male 72% are aged 18-29 90% are single 34% are unemployed
From Townhall: EMTs in Connecticut were forced to do a procedure on a “critically ill” patient in an ambulance after anti-Trump protestors blocked part of the highway and clogged up traffic. Between 100 and 200 people blocked the Interstate-95 Northbound Exit 47 Ramp (RT34 Westbound) in New Haven on Saturday afternoon. They were protesting President Trump’s executive […]
From Guy Benson at Townhall on the bad numbers related to Obamacare: When President Trump and Congressional Republicans make the case that Obamacare must be uprooted and replaced, they often note that the law is already falling apart and harming people. They’re right. Despite some recent polling reflecting less than half the country’s ‘status quo bias’ against […]
From The Federalist: Even sharing the burden of refugee resettlement makes some sense when you consider that many Near Eastern refugees cannot get themselves to the United States and are packed into teeming camps in nearby Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Those countries are poorer than ours and lack the capacity to house millions of newly […]

The media have also continued a double standard in their coverage of presidential executive power.
Former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather has launched a new Facebook page to ferret out real news from what he considers to be the fake news that has proliferated since the election: Please join me on an exciting new endeavor. I love news. I always have and can confidently say I always will. Journalism, […]
The mainstream media continue their misleading reporting about President Donald Trump’s executive order, which calls for temporarily limiting immigration into the United States from seven countries, and a review of refugee policy.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough assailed the proliferation of fake news and said that journalists need to do their job if they are serious about putting a stop to it. Scarborough cited an article in The Federalist listing 16 fake news stories that the media have published or broadcast since Trump won the election: “We’ve […]
From Townhall on Trump’s recent remarks to CENTCOM: The bulk of Trump’s remarks focused on efforts to defeat radical Islamic terror, in addition to reiteration of his stance that NATO allies must allocate proper funds for their defense. “We face a vicious enemy that has no respect for human life…No enemy stands a chance against […]
From The Federalist: In a subsequent Facebook post, Steele called out black intolerance of black non-conformists, especially on political and social issues, and correctly noted that the prevalence of racism among black people is something the Left gives black people a free pass for, instead of calling them out on it the same way they would […]
