Buying the False Promises of Unexamined Socialism

Written by Robert Knight

Since the 1960s, the media, Hollywood and the education system have presented a warped view of America along with a sugarcoated version of socialism. So, we should not be surprised when we see so many young people fooled by the false promises of redistributive economics.

The millennials are the main force behind Vermont’s Democratic Socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, and they are pushing the Democratic Party even further to the left.… Continue Reading

Denying Trump’s Accomplishments Is Increasingly Irrational

Written by David Limbaugh

Some people still can’t stomach the idea of a Donald Trump presidency and so remain in denial about his mounting policy successes, but their resistance is looking increasingly proud and petty.

It’s risky to predict future trends, especially the political fortunes of government leaders and the results they might achieve, because there are so many moving parts. We’ve seen so much volatility and fluidity, and we have a plethora of unknowns. So I admit that it would be foolish to take for granted that President Trump will continue to rack up remarkable, substantive policy achievements, but it would be just as foolish to deny the significance of his accomplishments already, on a variety of fronts — or to pretend that it wouldn’t have mattered much if Hillary Clinton had won the election.… Continue Reading

U.S. House Committee Passes Dangerous Jailbreak Bill

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Nowhere is the hard turn to the left within our body politic so evident as in Republicans signing on to the “Willie Horton soft on crime” agenda. Despite the president’s insistence that we get tougher, not weaker, on crime and drug trafficking, Jared Kushner and the Koch-funded phony right-leaning organizations won’t stop pushing that agenda. And it appears that even the conservatives who haven’t gotten roped into this extreme and dangerous agenda are ill-quipped to push back against it.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Protecting the Homeland, Protecting Our Kids

Written by John Biver

Monte Larrick recently interviewed Philip Haney at the National Religious Broadcasters convention. Philip is a former Department of Homeland Security officer and congressional whistle-blower. They discuss what he exposed, the Parkland school attack, including government negligence, and how to prevent similar attacks.

Monte opened with the question, “what did you expose?” Here is Haney in his own words:

“During the Obama Administration I was on active duty [and] put information into the law enforcement database — we call it derogatory information — connecting the dots on two major groups: the Muslim Brotherhood, which a lot of us have heard about, and another group, Tablighi Jamaat…on terrorism and counter terrorism.” “The bottom line is that the [Obama] administration deleted the information out of the system.”

Haney says he has proof that the information that was deleted could plausibly prevented the Boston bombing, the San Bernardino shootings and the Orlando shooting.… Continue Reading

10 Ways to Reclaim Stolen Power From the Courts

Written by Daniel Horowitz

“Freedom is the right to question, and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuing revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions. It is the right to put forth an idea, scoffed at by the experts, and watch it catch fire among the people. It is the right to stick—to dream—to follow your dream, or stick to your conscience, even if you’re the only one in a sea of doubters.” ~President Ronald Reagan

It’s high time for us to finally address the most pressing constitutional crisis of our time.… Continue Reading

The Appalling Silence of Congress On Our Border Crisis

Written by Daniel Horowitz

With the recent surge at the border, our national security is in grave danger. Because of judicial amnesty and catch-and-release, there is nothing to deter gang members, Middle Eastern terrorists, and drug runners from crossing the border, asserting a credible fear of persecution, and then disappearing indefinitely into our population as they “await” an asylum hearing. This was an egregious act of stolen sovereignty by the Obama administration, and despite the rhetoric to the contrary, Trump’s DHS has not fundamentally changed course.… Continue Reading

The Stupidity of the GOP

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Republicans have already given away the farm.

Imagine a teenager goes on a shopping spree with his dad’s credit card one month and unalterably charges the card with hundreds of thousands in expenditures. Then, the next day at the supper table, he passes his dad a note saying he is willing to help balance the family’s budget. You are as foolish as that dad if you are taken in by the GOP’s vote this week on a balanced budget amendment.… Continue Reading

How Trump Can Protect the Border Without Congress

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Can a group of foreign nationals rush our borders, claim to be unaccompanied minors or have a credible fear of persecution, and get in – while there is nothing an American president can do to protect America’s sovereignty, security, culture, schools, and social programs from the invasion? Does the president need permission from the courts or even a new act of Congress to just say no?

The political class would have you believe that, but it is simply not true.… Continue Reading

It Depends on What the Meaning of Facts Is

Written by David Limbaugh

Former President Barack Obama (I love the adjective preceding his title) made some comments at the recent Global Opinion Leaders Summit in Japan that I can’t let slide, so please forgive me.

“It used to be that the two political parties in the United States would disagree but there was a common base line of facts and a set of norms in terms of political behavior that were followed. … You could have a disagreement, but basic things got done.… Continue Reading

Reasserting the Purpose of the U.S. Military

Written by Micah Clark

President Donald Trump may have disappointed many who wish the Republican Party would remember it’s smaller government principles with his signing of the Omnibus-spending bill.  At least he hasn’t’ forgotten the basic principles of our U.S. Military.

Late last week the President issued a directive to the U.S. Military prohibiting people who have a gender identity disorder (gender dysphoria) from serving in the military.  The so called “transgender ban” is based upon advice from his military advisors in response to the many problems the disorder can cause in military readiness, medical costs, troop morale and effectiveness.… Continue Reading
