On One Senator Calling Another a Slut


Is Sen. Elizabeth Warren running against President Trump as the Democrats’ version of Trump? The only other explanation for a tweet of hers Tuesday, the one where she called Sen.

Senator Gillibrand, Washington Post Peddle More Fake News

Sex Vigilantes Trash Due Process


New York’s Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is spearheading a McCarthyite purge of sexual harassers from Congress, throwing the nation’s capital into turmoil. What counts as sexual harassment?

National Security Starts at Home


Korea, Russia, Jerusalem, Iran — what about national security right here at home? The Trump administration should abolish the arguably unconstitutional TSA, itself immune from security. Recent scandals included staff linked to terrorism. Indeed, a Somali warlord passed a TSA background check to work at a DC airport while TSA battles the scourge of breast […]

American Test Scores Decline… Gee, Wonder Why?


In 2013 Michael Cohen of Achieve, Inc. (an organization integral to developing and marketing the Common Core national standards) testified in New York that Common Core is a long-term education experiment on our children: “The full effects… won’t be seen until an entire cohort of students, from kindergarten through high school graduation, has been effectively […]

When Government Calls the Shots


“China Celebrates Xi Jinping With Fervor Not Seen Since Mao.” — Wall Street Journal, Dec. 10, 2017  And oh, what zeal!: Street-side banners and billboards; a Communist Party publicity tour to celebrate “General Secretary Xi’s words”; official choral performances and song-and-dance routines. “As performers,” says the dance troupe director, “it’s our duty to educate the […]
