The Theory of Political Relative Relativity

Written by Michelle Malkin

It’s quite simple: Some political relatives are more equal than others.

Agenda-driven journalists love to exploit familial dysfunction when a prominent politician is conservative and his or her kinfolk espouse liberal views. When a vengeful offspring, sibling, cousin or distant relation wants to wreak havoc, instant fame and adoration are just a tweet or call away. The media schadenfreude over such bloody bloodline battles is thicker than California wildfire smoke.

By contrast, relatives who openly challenge powerful Democrats are dismissed as gadflies and publicity hounds.… Continue Reading

Trump is More Popular Than Obama and it’s Driving the Fake Newsers Nuts

Written by Autumn Price Johnson

President Trump’s popularity is soaring among voters in spite of round-the-clock attacks from CNN’s Jim Acosta and others in the Fake News industry.

“When they see the anger from the media – the seething rage against this president, it drives people to the president’s corner,” Republican National Committee spokesperson Kaley McEnany said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

McEnany cited a new Rasmussen poll showing President Trump has a current approval rating of 48%, while former President Barack Obama had an approval rating of 46% at the same point in his presidency.… Continue Reading

What The Rise Of Kamala Harris Tells Us About The Democratic Party

Written by Perry Bacon Jr.

In the days after Hillary Clinton’s defeat, the two people who seemed like the Democratic Party’s most obvious 2020 candidates, then-Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, hinted that Clinton had gone too far in talking about issues of identity. “It is not good enough for somebody to say, ‘I’m a woman; vote for me,’” Sanders said.

Other liberals lamented that the party had lost white voters in such states as Ohio and Iowa who had supported Barack Obama, and they said Democrats needed to dial back the identity talk to win them back.… Continue Reading

Who Are the Future Fascists of America?

Written by Laurie Higgins

After reading a book review in the Chicago Tribune, I’ve got a little sumpin’ sumpin’ to say about renowned former New York Times book critic Michiko Kakutani who retired in 2017 and has written the book The Death of Truth, but first a clarification: This is not a defense of President Donald Trump, whose behavior I continue to find problematic but who I am really glad trumped Hillary.

In Kakutani’s newly released book, she says, “If a novelist had concocted a villain like Trump–a larger-than-life, over-the-top avatar of narcissism, mendacity, ignorance, prejudice, boorishness, demagoguery, and tyrannical impulses, she or he would likely be accused of extreme contrivance and implausibilty.”

With the exception of “larger-than-life” and boorishness, this seems an apt description of Barack Obama.

Shifting the Roe Burden Back to Schumer

Written by William J. Watkins, Jr.

Much like King Nebuchadnezzar’s instructions to the three Hebrew boys, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has telegraphed to Judge Brett Kavanaugh a way out of the fiery furnace of confirmation.  Kavanaugh need not bow down to a golden image, but he must give obeisance to Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark abortion case.  “The onus is on the nominee,” Schumer has declared, “to show where he or she might stand” on Roe.  … Continue Reading

The Democratic Party’s Christian Problem

Written by David Limbaugh

People on the left are outraged when you question their patriotism, their dedication to the nation as founded and their respect for the U.S. Constitution as originally written, but they continually vindicate our concerns.

The most recent example is the left’s unhinged mania at Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s inclusion on President Trump’s list of potential U.S. Supreme Court appointees. In times of perceived crisis — and this is certainly one of those times for leftists — they show their colors, and you can color them militantly opposed to Barrett, in large part because of her Catholicism.… Continue Reading

Patriotism in America

Written by Kristin Keller

This week, many Americans are donning flag apparel and singing “God Bless the USA” as they watch fireworks to celebrate America’s heritage. In earlier times, a Fourth of July Celebration was an act of unity, as our nation’s unique blend of people came together to show respect for our country’s icons and traditions and to celebrate its continued success.

Just this week, a Gallup poll asking U.S. adults how proud they are to be Americans showed that for the first time in the poll’s history, only 47 percent responded that they are “extremely proud.” Even combined with the 25 percent who said they are “very proud,” only 72 percent of our country are self-proclaimed proud Americans, the lowest result in Gallup’s history.… Continue Reading

The U.S. Justice Department’s IG’s Report: ‘Do You Believe in the Tooth Fairy?’

Written by John Biver

A couple of weeks ago, the U.S. Justice Department’s Inspector General’s office released its much-anticipated report about the Hillary Clinton email scandal under this title: “A Review of Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election.”

Last week, the U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee held a hearing and questioned both the Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the current FBI Director Christopher Wray about the report.… Continue Reading

The Big Lie: Leftists Care about Children

Written by Tom Trinko

Leftists have a long history of exploiting children to advance the left’s political agenda.  The most recent case is the left’s screeching about the fact that when illegals are arrested for trying to sneak into the country, their children are separated from them.

We know that leftists don’t really care about this because it happened under Barack Obama, and they said nothing.  It even happened under George W. Bush, and they didn’t complain about it then, either, even though they hated Bush.… Continue Reading

Weasel of the Week: Educrat Arne Duncan

Written by Michelle Malkin

Educrat (ED-yoo-krat) noun, usually pejorative. A government school official or administrator whose primary function is to spend tax dollars telling other parents what to do with their children.

Beltway education bureaucrats abhor families who choose to keep their kids out of public schools — unless it’s to grandstand over gun control.

Behold Arne Duncan, longtime pal of Barack Obama and former U.S. Department of Education secretary, who called last weekend for parents nationwide to withdraw students from classes “until gun laws [are] changed to keep them safe.”

Emotions are still raw after a teen shot 10 classmates and teachers to death in Texas last week.… Continue Reading
