Russian Collusion in Democrat Inner Circle?

Written by Karin McQuillan

There has been enthusiastic collusion by the leadership of the Democratic Party with the Russian disinformation campaign to destroy President Donald Trump.  (See “A Brief History of ‘Fake News'” on AmericanThinker.com.)  The Democrat willingness to collude with Russia to overturn our democratically elected president is unprecedented.  There is the infamous case of Ted Kennedy approaching the Kremlin to help Democrats defeat Reagan, but never before has collusion with our enemies by a non-communist party been sustained and widespread.… Continue Reading

Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Pakistani IT Scammers

Written by Andrew C.  McCarthy

In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz‘s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud.

Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash.… Continue Reading

Why is Socialism Being Promoted by Conservative Christian Outlets?

Written by Joe Carter

“Socialism,” said Richard John Neuhaus, “is the religion people get when they lose their religion.” While that might have been true in Neuhaus’s day, many young Christians are now attempting to have their faith and socialism too.

I never got the opportunity to meet Fr. Neuhaus. He died in January 2009, two months before I started working as the web editor at the magazine he founded, First Things. I suspect, though, that the staunch advocate of democratic capitalism would be surprised and dismayed to find his publication now has editors who identify as socialist and columnists who claim capitalism is inimical to Christianity.… Continue Reading

John McCain Joins Pro-Abortion Republicans to Defeat U.S. Senate Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood

Written by Steven Ertelt

Christmas is months away but U.S. Senator John McCain is already on the naughty list for pro-life Americans.

U.S. Senator McCain joined two probation Republicans to defeat the Senate bill that would defund Planned Parenthood. Called the skinny Bill to repeal portions of Obamacare, pro-life organizations and Senate Republican leaders hoped the bill would get enough votes to be able to land a repeal and defund measure on President Donald Trump’s desk.… Continue Reading

Levin: Rep. Luis Gutierrez is a ‘Marxist-Leninst’ and a ‘lunatic’

Written by Jordan Schachtel

Tuesday on his radio show, Conservative Review Editor-in-chief Mark Levin exposed far-left Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., breaking down his radical past.

Levin first responded to Gutierrez discussing the supposed evils of America, in which the Chicago politician called for the mass importation of illegal immigrants into America.

“Why are they here … If people are here working in the most horrendous conditions imaginable, why do they come here?” Levin asked.

He then played a clip of Rep.… Continue Reading

The ACLU’s Transparent Attack on the Election Integrity Panel

Written by Robert Knight

If you don’t think the Left is terrified by the prospect of clean voter rolls, you might not have heard about the latest ploy by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The ACLU has sued President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, charging them with violating federal “transparency” laws.

The suit is a bald attempt to halt the panel’s mission, which is to examine the prevalence of vote fraud in America and to recommend ways to secure the election process.… Continue Reading

20 Ideas to Crush Obamacare and Cure America’s Health Care Crisis

Written by Daniel Horowitz

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is famous for declaring health care a right. He is actually correct if we were to tweak his statement to read, “free market health care is a natural right.” Yes, we the people have a right to finally create a free market health care system that will do to the medical field what Uber, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Walmart, FedEx, and UPS have all done to their respective industries.… Continue Reading

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA

Written by William G. Parrot

Our Founding Fathers thoughtfully and succinctly defined human nature, thus crafting a Constitution confronting man’s decided vulnerability to the elixir of power and its addictive influence.  Across decades of the American landscape their genius sustained this nation’s promise rewarding hard work and diligence in a free society.  Limitless opportunity unfettered by overbearing government emboldened our citizens.  Selfless patriots and honest risk-takers became the lifeblood of this great land despite the freeloaders and parasites content with an entitlement mindset.… Continue Reading

President Trump Can Correct 70 Years of Judicial Abuse

Written by Bryan Fischer

Rumors are circulating widely in Washington, D.C. that Justice Anthony Kennedy may step down from the Supreme Court this summer. He’s 81 and has been on the bench for 30 years.

While those on the left consider him a conservative, he has been an absolute disaster on issues constitutional conservatives care about. For instance, he has been on the wrong side of every single court case that deals with sexual abnormality, beginning with the Romer v.Continue Reading

Charity Should Begin at Home — And Not in Washington

Written by Terry Schilling

In a recent Liberty Minute, “Charity Begins at Home,” Helen Krieble condemned the attitude of excessive reliance on the government for welfare:

Have you ever heard the old saying that charity begins at home? Now we seem to believe charity begins with the government. Whenever there is a tragedy of any kind, people look to government to rebuild homes, bail out failing businesses, and replace people’s lost possessions.

But when we look through the lens of liberty, we realize government can only provide for some people by taking from others.
