Newly-elected DNC chairman Tom Perez and Deputy chairman U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison

Written by Michael F. Haverluck

After falling only one vote short on the first ballot, Tom Perez was able to secure his victory in the second round of voting and expressed his optimism for the Democratic Party shortly after the news broke.

“We are at a turning point for our party and for all Americans,” Perez announced, according to Townhall. “By getting back to basics, we can turn the Democratic Party around, take the fight to [President] Donald Trump, and win elections from school board to the Senate.”

He then took to Twitter to announce that his former rival would become his right-hand-man – an avowed Muslim and defender of Islam and communism.… Continue Reading

False Charges of Anti-Semitism

Written by Michael Medved

The bitter divisions in American life currently stem from politics as much as from differences in race, religion or economic status. Even tightly connected subgroups endure internal conflicts over President Donald Trump and his policies.

Jewish Americans, for instance, represent less than 2 percent of the national population but that community includes some of Trump’s harshest critics, as well as members of his staff and family, and some of his strongest supporters. Any serious effort to unify the country must proceed one group at a time, and a good place to start would be rejection of absurd charges that the President himself is any sort of Jew hater.

As Israel’s visiting Prime Minister accurately observed, Mr. Trump has a long, unmistakable history of support for the Jewish people.… Continue Reading

4 Recent Examples Show Why No One Trusts Media ‘Fact Checks’

4 Recent Examples Show Why No One Trusts Media ‘Fact Checks’

Written by Mollie Ziegler Hemingway

A few weeks ago, Donald Trump responded to Meryl Streep’s insults by calling her overrated. Some fact checks came out saying that Streep, in fact, had won many awards. The Associated Press’ “Meryl Streep overrated? Donald Trump picks a decorated star,” was one such example. Four of the seven paragraphs to the story listed awards and honors she’d received.

As Victor Morton noted, “‘She has won a bunch of awards’ isn’t even a prima-facie rebuttal of the claim ‘she is overrated’.” He added, “If anything, ‘She won a bunch of awards’ is a necessary precondition for being ‘overrated,’ i.e. rated highly in first place.”

Exactly. If journalists involved with the “fact” “check” enterprise are capable of self-reflection, they should begin understanding why so many people find it a waste of time at best.… Continue Reading

Information on the ‘Transgender’ Bathroom/Locker Room Debate

Here is the latest national news regarding the bathroom/locker room issue as reported by LifeSiteNews.

President Trump is dropping his predecessor’s unpopular “transgender” federal order pressuring schools to let gender-confused boys use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms, and vice versa, according to the White House spokesman.

. . .

Ryan Sorba, chairman of Young Conservatives of America, commended Trump for “keeping his word to the American people” by rescinding Obama’s transgender-school edict, which touched off lawsuits by aggrieved states and a cascade of criticism nationwide.

“It’s preposterous that in the name of public policy and student ‘safety’ we would force states and local schools to adopt a policy of letting boys into girls locker rooms,” Sorba told LifeSiteNews. “This is ridiculous, if not completely insane.”

. . .

Pro-natural marriage advocate Ryan Anderson said students, parents and teachers should work out “win-win” solutions at the local level, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported, like building single-occupancy restrooms, or giving “transgender” students access to the faculty lounge.

“I want to disabuse the Jews today of the false claim that you are the chosen of God — that Israel or Palestine belongs to you,” Farrakhan said, to loud cheers.

“I want to disabuse you of that. I want to make it so clear and I’m going to tell you about your future. You that think you have power to frighten and dominate the peoples of the world. I’m here to announce the end of your time.”

Here are nine things you need to know about Farrakhan.

Don’t Overlook School Board Elections

‘Transgender’ Use of School Locker Rooms
Policy on the April 4th Ballot

Written by John Biver

Early voting begins today for the April 4th Consolidated Election. On the ballot will be candidates for municipal, township, park district, school board and other local governing bodies.

Too many voters think these races are not important, so turnout is typically very low. When turnout is lower – every vote carries much more weight. We have the chance to make a greater impact if we vote and encourage like-minded family, friends and neighbors to also vote.

Illinois Family Action is calling for your participation on several levels. Please learn about the candidates — a simple Google search can be useful even for these more localized races. Many candidates have either a website or a Facebook page with contact information you can use to reach out and ask questions.… Continue Reading

Democrats: Doomed by Internal Contradictions

Written by Michael Medved

To understand why they lost the election to Donald Trump and the Republicans, stunned Democrats must come to terms with the internal contradictions in their party’s policies and personalities.

On a policy level, Democrats tell the voters that the government is corrupt, and slanted toward the rich and powerful, even while they seek to grow that government. If corrupt government is using its power to help the privileged, you can’t correct the problem by handing government even more power.

Second, while Democrats pretend to represent the powerless rather than the privileged, they always pick elite candidates to head the ticket. Of the last 8 Democrats nominated for president, every one of them—8 for 8—had a degree from either Yale or Harvard.

Hillary Clinton could hardly appeal to outsiders who feel cheated by the system: with her Ivy League background and personal wealth, she’s been part of the political power elite her whole adult life.… Continue Reading

Rating the Presidents—and Obama

POTUSx8

Written by Dr. Paul G. Kengor

I’ve been getting emails from bewildered colleagues asking about a survey of presidential scholars that determined that Barack Obama is the 12th best president in the history of the United States, putting him near the top quartile of our presidents.

How can this be? I, too, was mystified, especially given that I participated in the survey.

The survey was conducted by the impeccably fair C-SPAN. Few sources do their job like C-SPAN does. If you want truly unfiltered news, C-SPAN is unrivaled for its ability to simply place a camera in a room and let reality speak for itself.

When it comes to surveys of presidents, C-SPAN likewise has no peer. I remember the nauseating presidential surveys in the 1980s and 1990s. They were mere measurements of the liberalism of the academy — that is, liberal historians and liberal political scientists expressing their liberalism by their liberal rankings of presidents.… Continue Reading

Democrats’ Real Global Warming Fraud Revealed

Paris-for-the-planet

Written by Dennis Avery

The Democrats are devastated by their recent lost elections.  They will be even more devastated as we learn the details of their massive global warming fraud.

Dr. John Bates, a former high level NOAA scientist, set off a furor by revealing that a recent NOAA paper, which claimed global warming hadn’t “paused” during the past 20 years, was fraudulent. The paper was timed to undergird President Barack Obama’s signing of the hugely expensive Paris climate agreement.

This is only a tiny fraction of the climate fraud.

Fortunately, high-tech research has finally sorted out the “mystery factor” in our recent climate changes—and it’s mostly not CO2.  Even redoubling carbon dioxide, by itself, would raise earth’s temperature only 1.1 degree.  That’s significant, but not dangerous.

CERN, the world’s top particle physics laboratory, just found that our big, abrupt climate changes are produced by variations in the sun’s activity. … Continue Reading
