One of the greatest threats to our freedom and democracy is the undermining of our economic vitality. The Chinese Communist Party and its business partners continue to steal technology and information from the U.S. at a staggering rate. They then use this technology to undermine our economy and achieve global economic dominance. Investigative journalist Lara […]
Kids: Chasing Paradise Exposes the Hate Factories Dooming the Next Generation.

Metropolitan Police Department states that the Antifa movement is “by far the most violent we have dealt with over the years.” It also states: “As you all are aware during the Inauguration of President Trump this was the group that destroyed property, assaulted any Trump supporter they ran […]
Along with the president, conservatives de-platformed in a coordinated operation. It will probably go down as the Friday Night massacre. Only it didn’t end Friday night and it won’t end for quite a while. On Friday night, Twitter permanently banned President Trump’s account. The move was soon followed by Facebook and Instagram. Over the weekend, […]
Understanding the violence so we can fix its source. Violence itself is a form of extremism. What we saw at the Capitol Wednesday – a building that has not been breached since 1814 – was certainly extremism, but it is important to understand it and distinguish it from other forms of extremism. There are two […]
Our extremism forecast. Look our for these three things. Americans are still in shell shock from 2020, a year that projected the public onto the frontlines of extremism. Few people exited 2020 without a crash course on the complex reality of what extremist behavior and extremist ideologies look like. And while most are heaving a […]
The hypocrisy of the EU’s new terror content law & free speech stateside. A recent agreement drafted for the European Union (EU) mandates that social media companies must take down terrorist content within an hour of it being flagged or risk paying enormous fines. On the face of it, we may automatically agree that this is a […]

Recruiters from all extremist groups play on men’s insecurities. They know that few things are more attractive to an insecure young man than power, and they offer it along with a weapon and a supremacist doctrine. In our latest short, What Makes a Real Man, from our Former Extremists Talk series, we ask why so many young men […]
Resources for parents or homeschooling groups. Two days before the election, then-Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris took to Twitter to share a video she narrated that critics say amounted to support for communism. There’s a big difference between equality and equity. pic.twitter.com/n3XfQyjLNe — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) November 1, 2020 Harris’s video aimed to identify […]
Muslim voters more than doubled their support for Trump from 2016. We explore why. Islamists have been successful in the U.S. of laying claim to the “Muslim voice,” garnering attention in the media and government in an effort to push through their agenda. It is with this backdrop that we look at an interesting finding […]
Global outrage over Macron shows exactly what Islamism looks like If there is one silver lining that comes out of the horror show that has been 2020, it should be that moving forward there is no further question or confusion about whether political Islam, i.e. Islamism, exists or what it looks like. As yet another Islamist attack unfolds […]
