Drafting Women Into the Army and More People Into Big Government

Written by Robert Knight

Don’t look now, but powerful forces are maneuvering to subject our daughters to the draft.  It’s part of the ongoing exploitation of the current crisis.  More about this below. Right now, our home-grown socialists are delighted that Uncle Sugar will be handing out checks to everybody under the sun as part of the $2 trillion stimulus package.And why shouldn’t they be? The socialist goal is to make everyone dependent on government, except for them.… Continue Reading

The Worst Time for Congressional Partisanship

Written by David Limbaugh

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s attempted partisan sabotage of the coronavirus relief bill might mark a new low for her. That the bill finally passed doesn’t excuse her reckless gamesmanship.

Republican and Democratic U.S. Senate leaders were close to an agreement when Pelosi parked her partisan broomstick and poured poison into the congressional punchbowl.

“Talking to some Senate GOP sources,” Townhall political editor Guy Benson tweeted. “They seem stunned and angry.… Continue Reading

U.S. Senator Durbin Wants Some Preemies to Live and Others to Die

Written by Laurie Higgins

Dead-baby supporters U.S. Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth, along with 42 collaborators helped defeat Senator Ben Sasse’s attempt to prohibit infanticide. Durbin took to the Senate floor to lie about Sasse’s bill by referring to it as an abortion bill despite the fact that he knows it has nothing to do with restricting access to abortion. Sasse’s bill, the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, would have required doctors to treat babies who survive abortions just as they would treat any other babies who are born alive.Continue Reading

Non-Citizens May Not Have “The Vision Thing”

Written by Jane Ryan Carrell

Chicago Tribune writer Eric Zorn has offered a new paradigm for U.S. elections. Zorn says, “Let’s give Green Card holders (non-citizens who have legal status to reside permanently and work in the U.S.) voting rights. After all, they pay taxes!” His January 23rd column is titled, “Jesse White’s blunder makes me want to ask, what’s so terrible about allowing non-citizens to vote?

The column was precipitated by the news that Illinois’ automatic voter registration system, which is in effect at driver’s license facilities and other state agencies, had mistakenly registered 545 non-citizens who had interacted with a state agency.… Continue Reading

Adam Schiff’s Avalanche of Accolades

Written by Brent Bozell III

Our media elites arrogantly lecture about our democracy being undermined by robotic propaganda, but do they ever listen to themselves talk about the Democrats? Somehow, they think their robotic propaganda is just the “truth.” The press came to witness the Senate impeachment trial, and U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) had them at hello.

No member of Congress has been more dramatically partisan in this war on the Trump presidency than Schiff. … Continue Reading

The Constitution and Rule of Law – When It Suits Them

Written by Robert Knight

Upon delivering two articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared that Mr. Trump was guilty of “an assault on the Constitution of the United States.”

Wow. That was some phone call he made to Ukraine’s president. Who knew that, if unaddressed, it would unravel the nation’s founding document?

In any case, Mrs. Pelosi’s newfound, if selective, respect for the U.S. Constitution is refreshing.

In 2010, when asked what part of the U.S.… Continue Reading

Foreign influence? How Trump Can Shut Down the Birth Tourism Scam

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Over the next few weeks the news cycle will be paralyzed by an impeachment trial that is essentially about foreign interference in our politics. However, the Trump administration has an opportunity to act on one of the most sinister foreign influences in our country, namely, birth tourism, being used by — you guessed it — Russia and China. If foreign influence is of such great concern to Democrats, shouldn’t we all agree to stop the practice of awarding those who lie to get into the country or who infiltrate our border with the ultimate prize of American citizenship?… Continue Reading

Pelosi’s Democrats Threaten Democracy in the Name of Protecting It

Written by David Limbaugh

Did you notice how presidential President Donald Trump appeared at his press conference on Iran? It was a fitting symbol for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s colossal failure in withholding the impeachment articles from the U.S. Senate.

Whatever Pelosi’s loony strategy — her unorthodox decision to withhold is only about strategy and not principle — she has ensured that the hyperpartisan impeachment will be viewed for exactly what it was. For all the Democrats’ manufactured impeachment drama, people seem to care less and less about the their shameless effort to affix a scarlet letter to Trump’s presidential record.… Continue Reading

How the 2020 Census Will Change the U.S. House

Written by Matt Palumbo

The conclusions of a recent Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) paper were misinterpreted and misreported by some as claiming that Republicans would lose twenty-four seats in states that voted for Donald Trump as a result of the 2020 census. What the study actually said was that because we count legal non-citizens and illegal aliens in the Census for population (which determines how representation is apportioned), the cumulative effects of that are that Democrats have twenty-four more seats than they otherwise would’ve had we never counted non-citizens and illegals in the first place.… Continue Reading

The Democrats’ Impeachment of Trump Will Live in Infamy

Written by Jonathan Clay de Hale

A date that will live in infamy.” ~President Franklin D. Roosevelt,
addressing the nation on December 8, 1941, the day after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor

Those words apply equally to the partisan vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18, 2019 to impeach President Donald J. Trump. Not everyone will see the deed as infamous, but at least half of American voters will. Historians 50 years from now will agree that the attempt to impeach this president was politically motivated, did great damage to our system of government, and was an unprecedented abuse of power.… Continue Reading
