On August 4, 2020, Breitbart News reported Biden tweeted, “As president, I’ll take on the powerful gun lobby to pass universal background checks, ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and close loopholes to keep guns out of dangerous hands. We can and will end our gun violence epidemic.” On August 5, 2020, Biden tweeted, “Weapons of […]
Wednesday, on her new podcast former first lady Michelle Obama, said she is “dealing with some form of low-grade depression,” because of the quarantine, racial strife, and “seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out.” Obama said, “I’m waking up in the middle of the night, cause I’m worrying about something, […]
Whether consciously or by reacting to his own political incentives, Trump has become a stouter defender of our original governing document than his critics. Donald Trump’s tweet last week that the possibility of mail-in voter fraud might justify postponing the November elections renewed claims that his presidency is a threat to the Constitution. Conservative commentator
If schools don’t open their doors and refuse online learning, it would be not only silly but outright unjust to send checks to shuttered doors over struggling families. In case you didn’t experience it last semester, online learning was a failure. Across the country, fewer than half of students showed up, and those who did […]
Thousands gathered in Berlin on Saturday to protest coronavirus restrictions as authorities raise concerns about a rise in new infections. The demonstration, called “The end of the pandemic – freedom day,” drew people from various parts of Germany after weeks of planning.

Sports, movies, and schools go woke. And broke?   Cultural suicide used to be a popular diagnosis of why things suddenly just quit. Historians such as Oswald Spengler and Arnold Toynbee cited social cannibalism to explain why once-successful states, institutions, and cultures simply died off. Their common explanation was that the arrogance of success ensures […]
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Friday condemned the decision to delay legislative elections in Hong Kong, one day after President Trump asked if the U.S. should postpone its own November election. “We condemn the Hong Kong government’s decision to postpone for one year its legislative council elections and to disqualify opposition candidates,”
Monopolies are bad. Regardless of your political views, that statement probably elicited nothing stronger than a yawn. Why? Because even some of the most ardent free market crusaders recognize the dangers of monopolistic power. Competition is the great driving force behind our economy, producing innovation, rewarding efficiency and good management, and reducing prices.
For four years, Democrats have been trying to cement in voters’ foreheads the idea that Trump is unfit for office. Perhaps that’s because Democrats’ policies never have been as unfit for the office as they are now. In 2016, the news-minding public endured an endless chant branding Donald Trump’s character and personality as “unfit” for […]
The year 2020 will be recorded in California history books as the year a pandemic arrived in America’s most populous state, but the impact of a California Supreme Court ruling likely will have a more lasting impact on state and local budgets and the economy. Later this year, the court is expected to address recent […]
The Ohio Board of Pharmacy has reversed a rule that prohibited the sale and dispensing of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine in the state after Gov. Mike DeWine (R) asked for the reversal. “I agree with the statement from Dr. Steven Hahn, Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, that the decision about prescribing hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 […]
California officials are suing President Trump’s administration to ensure they can continue to inflate their power in Washington, D.C. by counting illegal aliens in congressional apportionment — giving the state more congressional seats and electoral college votes than it would otherwise have. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, along with other California
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will launch a rocket on Thursday morning to Mars on a mission that will include deploying a rover, a helicopter, and collecting samples that scientists hope may show signs of life on the red planet. “I’m exceptionally excited about what we’re about to do because we’re going to […]
An epidemiology professor at the Yale School of Public Health said hydroxychloroquine could save 100,000 lives from the coronavirus but added that the controversial anti-malaria drug has instead been used in a “propaganda war.” Watch the latest video at “I think 75,000 to 100,000 lives will be saved,” Dr. Harvey Risch said in an […]
The Black Lives Matter movement mourned the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro in a statement Sunday, saying they were similarly on a “revolution” to create a world of “freedom” and “peace.” The statement hailed the authoritarian dictator and staunch U.S. adversary who ruled Cuba for almost 50 years as an ideal revolutionary leader […]
President Donald Trump defended Tuesday a group of doctors who spoke about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine on Monday at a press conference. Trump said he was aware that Facebook, Twitter, and Google had removed videos of the group America’s Frontline Doctors at their Capitol Hill press conference on Monday.

The continuing unrest in Portland, Oregon, which has now lasted some 55 nights, exemplifies the breakdown of law and order that has become a daily occurrence in many cities with progressive mayors.

The UK has a critical role to play in countering aggression. Chinese leaders love to use the phrase ‘win-win’, but they actually hope to win twice and leave other nations in positions of relative disadvantage. The Chinese Communist party’s behavior during the COVID-19 crisis is a case in point. In the midst of the global […]
American history shows that federalism initially went too far in its protection of states. Slavery made plain the most obvious flaw in the Constitution’s original design – it failed to provide a minimum protection for individual rights against states as well as the federal government.  Slavery deprived a specific race, brought to the United States […]
America is going through an identity crisis. Many no longer look back at our history with a reverent eye, but with a critical one, questioning our history, principles, and values. Others feel a sense of constant confusion. Coming from Somalia, a country steeped in its own disorder and unrest, I am alarmed to see this […]
