    Trump's global trade war with China is one that aims to achieve something no other president has attempted: the protection of American technology against pirating by China The world’s second-largest economy has responded to President Donald Trump’s controversial trade tariffs, according to this morning’s blaring news headlines. “China’s commerce ministry proposed a list of 128 U.S. products as potential retaliation targets, according to a statement on its website posted Friday morning.” (CNBC, March 22, 2018) Notice the words used to describe China: “The world’s second-largest economy”.

    You owe it to your country, Sir, to pick them up, dust them off, and ready them for the coming new battle. Unfortunately, Round 2 has already slipped away from ‘Making America Great Again’ to ‘Saving America Again’ It was, as a caller told Rush Limbaugh today, a snake bite in the butt, President Trump. Your suddenly changing course and signing the outrageous Omnibus Bill, that is. Up to now, you’ve done a good job remaining loyal to the things you promised some 63 million people who voted for you. Now many of them will say you are a politician...

    The spending bill is an ugly attack on our freedoms. The Republican House and Republican Senate have stabbed us in the back. The Republicans in the Senate have gleefully joined the House in trampling our rights to freedom. Our only hope for keeping our freedom now is a VETO from President Trump. To override his VETO each Chamber of Congress would have to vote 2/3s in the affirmative. This is a tall order and we can make even harder. The Senate surprised many of us. It didn't blink. It passed the monstrosity but with a 65/35 vote. That's one short...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Man, another slow news day – having a hard time finding anything to write about. Lessee here… Down goes McMaster! Down goes McMaster! Down goes McMaster! – General H.R. McMaster, who has run the leaky valve we call the National Security Council (NSC) for the past 13 months, was finally, at long last given his walking papers on Thursday. The move comes after the latest in a long series of major, embarrassing leaks that most likely came from either the General or his staff earlier this week. That leak came when the...

    A free America demands an open Internet, a secure Internet, an Internet free of political censorship How did we get along before the Internet? Young people today cannot imagine living in a world without electronic devices - a time before fast-paced computers, laptops, and smart phones provided instant connectivity. Their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents cannot imagine living in a world without automobiles, airplanes, and television - a time of slow-paced letter writing, waiting, and sailing boats. People live in the cultural, physical, and political historical context of their lives. Russian-American philosopher and writer Ayn Rand (1905-1982) sailed the month-long journey...
  • Putin's aggressive policies cost Russia 180,000 new births in 2017 alone

    Window on Eurasia ^ | Mar 2018 | Andrey Illarionov
    Russia has had to pay a demographic price for Vladimir Putin’s aggression in Ukraine and Syria amounting to 180,000 children who would have been born save for Kremlin policies. According to Rosstat, Russian mothers gave birth to 203,000 babies fewer in 2017 than they had the year before, a decline of 10.7 percent. This year, they are on pace to give birth to 360,000 fewer than in 2017, a decline that matches those in the first post-Soviet years. Given that marriages did not decline in number but in fact rose last year, one has to ask: What has happened with...

    Gun Watch ^ | 23 March, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    Jeanne Ives and Governor Bruce Rauner It isn't often that you see political courage shown in Illinois. Illinois is a deep blue state that has very restrictive gun control laws. Chicago politicians are all to eager to curry favor with the national media and to go-along to get-along with the anti-Second Amendment agenda. Illinois politics is dominated by Chicago. Governor Bruce Rauner went against the flow and the enormous power wielded by the network media. He vetoed an expensive and ineffective bill, SB 1657, designed to make gun sales more difficult in Illinois, at least for small dealers.  From...

The sound of Facebook claiming instant victimhood in the aftermath of the cooked-up, hysterical Cambridge Analytical ‘scandal’. Facebook, which throws a lifeline keeping all Progressives comfortably afloat, is now claiming victimhood for itself. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally came out of hiding to address reports that his company had allowed Cambridge Analytica access to data on millions of Facebook users without their knowledge or consent:

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Remember, whenever a Clinton accuses someone else of wrongdoing, it means they’re guilty of that behavior themselves. – The Pantsuit Princess, in an interview on Dutch television, claimed that President Donald Trump has “undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family. Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” This, of course, is yet another episode of Clintonian “projection,” an attempt to deflect attention from her own influence scam while serving as Secretary of State. Seems the Grasping Grifter must have gotten wind that the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations into the Clinton...

    I'm in an open marriage. Well, to be simultaneously more and less specific: I'm in a nonmonogamous marriage. An "open" marriage, in the nontraditional world, means that the couple may be having sex with other people but with no emotion involved. In contrast, in a "polyamorous" relationship, it means the couple is having sex with others and may also be having full-fledged relationships with others.

    There have been numerous reports of students being bullied, pushed to participate in anti-Second Amendment protests they did not believe in, and of being punished for speaking out.  The Second Amendment Foundation today announced a project to help students who have been harassed, intimidated or bullied for resisting peer pressure to join the wave of protests against guns and the right to keep and bear arms. "A student's First Amendment rights should not be violated because they support the Second Amendment," said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. "There have been several reports over the past...

    The Gellar Report ^ | 3/21/18 | Pamela Gellar
    Jihad scammers rightfully tossed out of court. You remember “Clockmed,” aka Ahmed Mohamed. Mohamed took apart an LCD digital clock and stuck it in a box. What he put together resembled a homemade bomb. Even though he admitted it looked “suspicious,” Ahmed brought it to school. When teachers and school administration officials became concerned for the safety of the students, they walked into Clockmed’s trap. Ahmed played the Islamofauxbia victim to the hilt. Lauded by President Obama, the Pope, 97 world leaders, the UN, hailed by NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio, who declared “Ahmed Day,” he became an enemedia icon and...

He was found guilty of aiding and abetting ISIS. Once again, the family covers and sanctions jihad and blames islamophobia (in other words, the victims). His mother told the Observer in 2016 that her son was “patriotic,” and was facing trumped-up charges because he is a converted Muslim. Hendricks had contacted Al-Ghazi over social media to recruit him months earlier. Al-Ghazi said Hendricks tested his religious knowledge...

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel welcomed an offer to have Florida state police help guard the entrances and exits to the school after one of his deputies was found asleep on the job Tuesday. (Photo: BCSO)A deputy assigned to secure Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has been suspended after he was spotted taking a nap in his car. The school, site of a shooting that left 17 dead last month, has upped its security as students and staff return to campus and the deputy believed to be asleep, Moises Carotti, was part of that effort. A Broward...

    Protocol is allowed by the media for Saint Obama but not for the devil they make Donald Trump out to be Why is it that when the Washington Post is caught with its houndstooth pants down, the Mainstream and Social Media are always found looking pointedly the other way? The WaPo’s “LEAD” story going viral today makes it seem that Donald Trump was the first—and only—president to ever congratulate Vladimir Putin on an election victory when, in point of fact, former president Barack Obama did the same thing, only in a much more gushing way:

    By now, everyone has heard there is a new Trump accuser trying to get her 15 minutes of face time on camera, a former Playboy Bunny, along with Stormy Daniels, a 'professional stripper', and another whom I can't remember her name, nor care to. What amazes me is the fact that I have never seen so many women willing to go on the record, and even national television, to exclaim, "LOOK AT ME! I'M A WHORE!". "I'M EVEN TRYING TO GET THE COURTS TO ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU HOW BIG A WHORE I AM!" The Media MSM is falling...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Don’t expect CNN to spend any real time covering this one. – A good guy with a gun stopped a school shooting on Tuesday, and the fake news media barely noticed. A “resource officer” at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland responded within 60 seconds to reports of a shooter on campus and traded shots with the attacker in an act that likely prevented more killings from taking place. The shooter ultimately committed suicide, and witnesses called the officer, Deputy Blaine Gaskill, a hero. It is worth noting that, had the...
