Polls: Trump Popularity Soars to Highest Level, Trust In Media Tanks To Lowest

The events in the above headline are not unrelated. Once the literally “no news” two-year news cycle of Trump-Russia collusion ended with the thump of the Mueller report finding no collusion and not recommending any obstruction of justice charges, it turns out Americans are OK with President Trump. More than OK. The Zogby Poll has Trump’s […]

Florida’s Honors College Moves to “Cognitive Diversity”

Florida’s honors college for the state system may have twisted itself into a verbal knot because it does what apparently is common practice among colleges — adding a layer of review to applying students who had reported mental issues. This makes eminent sense for college campuses who have been dealing with some tragic violence issues, […]

Cyber Jihadists Are Getting Christians Banned On Facebook

It’s not just high-profile anti-leftist political commentators such as Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer who are being banned from Facebook and de-platformed elsewhere. Facebook has forced a well-known Christian apologist off their platform for things he posted years earlier — such as death and rape threats he received and even a famous […]

Biden Will Run On A Central Lie About Donald Trump

Joe Biden announced today and he is running on one of the core lies about President Trump. And it is a lie that is at once pervasive and really easy to reveal. It’s the lie about what Trump said after Charlottesville and represents everything wrong with the Democrat/media establishment. Trump painfully clearly and obviously was […]

Historians Will Know This As ‘The Era Of The Witch Hunt’

There really is nothing new under the sun. The infamous Salem Witch Trials started with a group of young girls claiming they were doing bad things because they were possessed. They then said that it was witches who caused them to be possessed, naming them without providing any evidence. The “witches” were then summarily executed. […]

Florida Is Ground Zero In Fight Against Sanctuary Cities

Banning sanctuary cities has a very real chance of passing in Florida this year — and that’s creating an emotion-driven battle with Democrats and the open-borders lobby. The sanctuary bill sponsored by Sarasota Republican Sen. Joe Gruters — who is also Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida — has become the most contentious issue […]

The Cultural Failure Of Free College

Economist Ludwig von Mises observed the reality that virtually every government action creates unintended consequences that cause problems greater than the ones that were meant to be solved. But the Democratic Party that is now apparently fully on board with free college for everyone is clearly unaware of this truism. That’s not too surprising as […]

Parents Cannot Opt Out Of California’s New Transgender Cram Down

California may not be able to build basic 19th century technology like a railroad, but boy they know how to cram down indoctrination in a fashion that would make gulag guards proud. The California Department of Education is working on new “health guidelines” — which are neither healthy nor mere guidelines — in a proposed Health […]

Planned Parenthood’s Political Juggernaut Is Meeting Its Match

By Peter B. Gemma Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider and a powerful multi-million-dollar political machine. Hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding go for its non-profit “family planning services.” In truth, however, that facilitates Planned Parenthood’s political activities, underwritten by private donations, in support of politicians who keep the federal funding […]

Muslims Are Safer In The United States Than In Muslim Countries

The brutal, hate-filled slaughter of 50 Muslims in mosques in New Zealand garnered worldwide news coverage for days as the outrage was real and visceral. But the reaction belies a broader issue that is generally buried for ill-fitting the narrative: Muslims are not only extraordinarily safe in the United States, they are thriving. First, it’s […]
