    The government felt good about the pictures coming from the media in Paris where the yellow vests were much less numerous this week. 168 arrests were made in Paris. It had been suggested that protesting in Paris "was a trap" before December 8th's massive police operation there against protesters. While today's protest brought some to Paris with the estimate of some 1-thousand, others protested in other locations like Bordeaux where 4,500 protesters gathered and 27 were arrested and 22 injured. At Saint-Etienne 1,500 protesters with 52 arrests reported. In Nantes, 1,200 protesters were reported. 16 arrests there with six injuries....

    The Washington Post, which every day acts more and more like an integral part of the democrat party, generated an article that is as offensive as it was misleading. Got that? The Border Patrol killed her, right? The Border Patrol refused her water for days, right? Except that's not what happened. The Washington Post’s article led with concerns that the child’s death, which occurred a week prior to publication, would lead to scrutiny of conditions at detention centers for families crossing the border into the United States. It read: The child’s death is likely to intensify scrutiny of detention conditions at Border Patrol stations and CBP...

    President Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday to honor America’s fallen as thousands across the country laid wreaths on veterans’ graves. Trump paid his respects as volunteers for ‘Wreaths Across America‘ waited in long lines to place a Christmas wreath on the tombs of America’s greatest heroes. The event, which is held every December, aims to “remember, honor, and teach” about those who served, and perished, fighting for America’s freedom. In addition to Arlington National Cemetery, Wreaths Across America Day is observed at more than 1,400 cemeteries in all 50 states, as well as...

    China is the leading emitter of CO2 among the nations of the world. Its CO2 emissions are more than double those of the United States. Yet, the Paris Accord negotiated by former President Obama exempts China from contributing to pollution emission reductions. On top of that, the Accord obligates signers from developed nations to pay less developed nations $100 billion per year in climate related aid starting in 2020. Xie Zhenhua, China’s lead envoy at the United Nations conference on global warming in Poland, castigated the developed countries for “neglecting to compensate us for the environmental damage they have done...

     The case is Texas, et al., v. United States of America, et al., Defendants, California, et al. Intervenors-Defendants.  Case 4:18-cv-00167-O Here is the actual decision where Judge O'Conner, of the Northern District Court of Texas, has ruled that Obamacare is unconstitutional because the Supreme Court ruled it was only Constitutional because the individual mandate was a tax. That tax was removed by Congress during the first year of the Trump administration. From The United States healthcare system touches millions of lives in a daily and deeply personal way. Health-insurance policy is therefore a politically charged affair—inflaming emotions and...

    For the past two years we have seen the emergence of a coherent Trump doctrine in both words and deeds. (Weekend Long Read) There is a remarkable consistency throughout all of President Trump’s speeches, formal documents (such as the National Security Strategy) and actions of the administration To understand the Trump doctrine, we must begin with candidate Trump’s first major speech on foreign policy on April 27, 2016 (thus even before the Indiana primary) to the Center for the National Interest at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. All the elements of the Trump doctrine are revealed in this maiden...

    This week, Lawrence Doyle and John Moynihan of DM Income Advisors told the House subcommittee on government operations that they forwarded thousands of documents to the IRS showing that Bill and Hillary Clinton may have neglected to pay taxes on $400 million to $2.5 billion in money they cycled through the Clinton Foundation's so-called charity. Clinton Foundation CEO Kevin Thurm dismissed the allegations as "just another ploy by the vast right-wing conspiracy that has been harassing Bill and Hillary for decades. No one in government has ever seen fit to pursue any indictments for anything that they have done in...

    In an interview with Fox News, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy slammed James Comey as an “an amnesiac with incredible hubris” who is only out to protect himself. Gowdy spoke with host Martha MacCallum to discuss the former FBI Director who recently testified in a closed-door interview with congressional lawmakers. Comey was questioned about a series of controversies, including his department’s handling of the Hillary Clinton private email server investigation and the subsequent Russian collusion probe. “Comey just thinks he’s always right, and … it doesn’t matter if everyone else concludes he did wrong,” Gowdy said. “He knows better. So,...

    The reality is that until all Congress sexual harassers and Capitol Hill flashers are outed by name, the public can suspect all elected officials of dirty deeds The Canada Free Press (CFP) graphic of a man standing with his back to the camera flashing the White House says it all: Public officials, exposing their genitals and grabbing private parts—right on the House floor get away with it—their identities safeguarded by their own peers. Some of the peers protecting the identities of sexual predators in Congress are female—even with the #MeToo Movement up and running.

    It is reassuring to know that millions of Americans and at least some of our country’s entertainers refuse to be intimidated by the PC police In this holiday season, the leftists who constantly promote politically correct (PC) causes have been working overtime. Instead of just enjoying this special time of the year with their families and friends, liberal activists have been on a search and destroy mission, targeting American cultural classics. Their first victim was the innocent television special that airs on ABC, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. This cartoon has been broadcast for 45 years with no controversy; however, in...

    First lady Melania Trump attacked the media for mentioning her son, Barron, in its coverage of the Trump family, in a two-part interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. "It does make me angry, because children should be off limits," said the first lady. Asked if her 12-year-old son should be shielded from the media's spotlight, Trump said: "I protect him, and I want to give him as normal a life as possible. This is not a normal life, but I like to protect him and give him the childhood he deserves." The first lady said that despite the media...

    Fired FBI Director James Comey followed up his amnesiac performance in his testimony before House Judiciary and Oversight committees with a bit of self-congratulatory boasting about his cleverness. "While I couldn't remember the answers to most of the questions the dim-witted Republicans were asking me, I do recall some of the high points of my covert efforts to save the nation from the misrule of Donald Trump," Comey said. "Publicly exonerating Secretary Clinton in July 2016 was probably the hardest punch I threw. By clearing her of all charges I neutralized a lot of the criticisms Trump and the Republicans...

    THE BORDER WALL: What it's REALLY ABOUT! As anyone with a brain saw during the “Kavanaugh Klusterhump”, the Marxist/Socialist Democrats on the Left (but I repeat myself, thrice) will do ANYTHING to seize and retain P.O.W.E.R. Senator Graham got it exactly right during that would-be lynching. In addition to their having philosophically captured HUGE slugs of the academic, judicial, administrative and, yes, ecclesiastical sectors beginning back in the Wilson and Roosevelt eras, their Marxist Socialist Utopia was not developing quickly enough for them. Comes then the so-called “Feminist Revolution” of the 70s during which the Left convinced millions of American...
