Repeal and Replace Our Universities

By Lawrence Sellin

The political left has made a complete pig's breakfast of our educational system.

Safe Snowflake Schools for Socialism.

Political intolerance is now the official policy at colleges and universities across the United States with violence or the threat thereof as the means of enforcing extreme leftist orthodoxy.

The 10 Ugliest Cars of All Times

The following list was carefully curated by summer intern Biff Spackle, who says "it is definitive and may not be questioned".

Geo Tracker
The reliability of a Ford Pinto combined with the styling beauty of a Jeep's miscarriage. The Tracker was guaranteed to last well over 20,000 miles of wear-and-tear, at least according to the salesguy.

QOTD: "To press flunkies, Susan Rice casts her espionage as high-minded, national-security-based vigilance. But on her Twitter account she doesn’t bother to keep up that charade. That she would re-tweet the partisan hackery of E.J. Dionne indicates the depth of partisanship behind her espionage...

..The Democrats are at once proud of the spying and hesitant to know its details. Schiff, normally so talkative, has turned taciturn after seeing them, relying on his legal training to avoid difficult questions. That is easy enough to pull off since the media, composed almost entirely of Democrats, is reluctant to put him on the spot. They just nod, Andrea Mitchell-style, at his parsing and move on." --George Neumayr

Sen. Robert Menendez's (D-NJ) No-Good, Awful, Very Bad Day

By Scott Mailer

The walls are closing in on Senator Robert Menendez. With Dr. Salomon Melgen’s conviction today, it’s clear Menendez isn’t long for the Senate. It’s time for Senator Schumer to see that too.

Menendez's political career was handed a massive setback today. One of his key partners -- Dr. Salomon Melgen -- was convicted on all 67 counts of Medicare fraud. It's now apparent that Menendez’s days in the Senate are numbered... possibly in the single digits.

IRAN IN SYRIA: A Gathering Storm

By P. David Hornik

The Iranian regime, as it has made clear in countless threats, rallies, and missile displays, wants to destroy Israel, the “Little Satan.” 

Given Israel’s military might and, according to foreign reports, nuclear arsenal, Iran’s goal is probably unattainable. But the nearer Iran gets—or perceives itself to get—to that goal, the more warfare and instability is likely to ensue.

At present, thanks to Syria’s collapse into civil war and the Obama administration’s—at best—inept policy there, Iran is within reach of establishing a permanent military presence to Israel’s north—a surefire recipe for ongoing struggle and menace.

"THE POLICE CANNOT STOP US": Threats by Pro-Fascist (#ProFa) Thugs Lead to Cancellation of Portland Rose Parade

By Thomas Phippen

The organizers of a popular Portland, Ore., parade have canceled this year’s festivities after an anonymous email threatened violence against a Republican group participating in the event.

Activists targeted the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade, scheduled for Saturday, because the Multnomah County Republicans were allowed to participate.

Sweden Has Turned the Corner

By Bishop Latimer

Compared to many (perhaps most) visitors and contributors to this site, my own awakening to the dangers of political Islam came late — around 2010. Despite the mountain of evidence — and bodies — piling up, I did not see the problem. The steady drumbeat of political correctness that was the soundtrack to my life from university onwards had all but closed my mind to anything outside the narrow confines of The Narrative. I have to thank the cartoonists at Jyllands-Posten, the heroic Lars Vilks and the late Christopher Hitchens for throwing a bucket of ice-cold water in my face.

Trump's Tax Cuts For All Americans Portrayed by Media as, Get This, Tax Cuts for the Rich

By William Teach

Liberals are pretty much one-trick ponies. Like The New York Lyin' Times:

White House Proposes Slashing Tax Rates, Significantly Aiding Wealthy

President Trump on Wednesday proposed sharp reductions in individual and business income tax rates and a radical reordering of the tax code that would significantly benefit the wealthy, but he offered no explanation of how the plan would be financed as he rushed to show progress before the 100-day mark of his presidency.

Here’s the question: so what?

Benedict Arnold Obama

By Joseph Klein

Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson certified that Iran was compliant with its commitments under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, known more formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). However, this is only because of all the concessions that the Obama administration had made, which lowered the bar for Iran’s technical compliance to an absurdly low level. Indeed, Barack Obama’s concessions to the Iran regime, which he offered in order to secure Iran’s agreement on the terms of the disastrous JCPOA, seem to have no bounds.  The result is that Iran is marching ahead with perfecting key elements of a full nuclear weapons program, while already receiving many of the benefits of sanctions relief afforded by the JCPOA.  And now evidence has surfaced that the Obama administration not only paid a ransom for the release of American citizens imprisoned unlawfully by the Iranian regime as the JCPOA was being implemented. According to an April 24th investigatory report by Politico, the Obama administration also agreed, as part of a prison swap, to release seven Iranian-born prisoners from U.S. custody, at least some of whom could well go back to helping the Iranian regime procure components for its nuclear weapons program. 

SMART POWER: Hillary Aides Threatened Prime Minister's Son With IRS Audit

By Richard Pollock

Hillary Clinton’s Department of State aides allegedly threatened a South Asian prime minister’s son with an IRS audit in an attempt to stop a Bangladesh government investigation of a close friend and donor of Clinton’s, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group learned.

A Bangladesh government commission was investigating multiple charges of financial mismanagement at Grameen Bank, beginning in May 2012. Muhammad Yunus, a major Clinton Foundation donor, served as managing director of the bank.

EXCELLENT, SMITHERS: ATF Reverses Draconian, Obama-Era Policy on Stabilizing Braces

By Institute for Legislative Action

News broke this week that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has reconsidered and “clarified” its Jan. 6, 2015 Open Letter on the use of stabilizing braces as shoulder stocks.

As we explained at the time, the ATF took the position in that letter that merely affixing the stabilizing brace to a pistol did not constitute the “making” of an NFA firearm. Firing the braced pistol from the shoulder, however, was held to constitute a “redesign” of the firearm that brought it under the jurisdiction of the National Firearms Act (NFA), with all the additional regulations that classification entails.

RYAN, McCONNELL TO TRUMP: "You f***ed up, you trusted us"

By Dan Riehl

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) covered several topics with Breitbart News Radio SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday, including the possibility of a government shutdown, the border wall, and how Trump has done in his first 100 days.

Regarding the later, said Gohmert, “It goes back to the Animal House line, “Well, you messed up. You trusted us,” referring to Trump trusting in Congress.

QOTD: "...even though Hillary Clinton lost two elections, the Clinton machine—the one the family has been building ever since Bill left office in 2001—is still very much in place. Walter Russell Mead described it like this during the 2016 primaries: “The machine gathers the cash that provides perches and incomes to Clinton loyalists; the loyalists keep the publicity machine pumping, keep the networks of contacts and patronage refreshed throughout the vast Clinton network, and staff what amounts to a permanent campaign. This is what party machines used to do: provide incomes for the army of operatives who would jump into action to make sure the machine stayed in office.”

The loyalists who make up this apparatus want—or even need—for the gears to keep spinning. And for that, the machine needs to offer the promise of future influence. Otherwise, donations to the Clinton Foundation would dry up; speaking engagements would become less lucrative; Clinton-backed spin organizations would wither; and dozens of jobs would disappear. All this is to say that the strange persistence of Chelsea boosterism does not come out of nowhere; it is the product of a supremely well-organized political organization revving its engines. And it will not be shut down voluntarily." --The American Interest

GERMANY: Iran Plotting Terror on Jewish and Israeli Targets

By IPT News

Iran is responsible for a significant amount of espionage activity in Germany over the past decade, and is responsible for planning terrorist attacks on Israeli and Jewish targets, the Jerusalem Post reports.

In a letter sent to a Left Party deputy from German's interior ministry, the federal government launched 22 criminal investigations concerning Iran's illegal espionage activity – more than China and Turkey who were suspected in 15 spy cases each. Only Russia, with 27 cases, is involved in more suspected espionage activity than Iran.

The police fund (funded at 25.4 percent) and the firefighter's fund (funded at 21.7 percent) will not be far behind.

Weird Fat Kid Threatens to Destroy USS Carl Vinson With Intercounty Ballistic Jarts, Clackers and Skydancers

Remember when the Clinton administration proclaimed success in keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of North Korea's inbred criminal family?

Yeah, those were good times. Good times.

Anyhow, the 21st century's most flatulent world leader is pounding his pots and pans, trying to get attention and scare anyone within listening distance.

Given its track record of missile launch failures, NoKo may have to resort to intercounty ballistic Jarts and Atomic Wrist Rockets.

THE DEPARTMENT OF OBVIOUS: Bernie "Venezuela" Sanders Says "The Democratic Party is Failing"

The socialist from Vermont and former Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sandersappeared on today CBS News' Deface the Nation (hat tip: Mark Levin).

As anyone could have predicted, he was not asked about the tragic and violent meltdown of Venezuelan society, another victim of socialism's perfect track record.

He was asked about the current fractures in a party best known for cobbling together various groups of grievance-mongers, government dependents, illegal aliens, the mathematically challenged and the ultra-wealthy.

Stunningly, this political Tower of Babel hasn't led to widespread electoral success.

Let's let Sanders tell it:

QOTD: "During Russia’s hacking campaign against the United States, intelligence agencies could peer, at times, into Russian networks and see what had been taken. Early last year, F.B.I. agents received a batch of hacked documents, and one caught their attention.

The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document…

If Ms. Lynch announced that the case was closed, and Russia leaked the document, Mr. Comey believed it would raise doubts about the independence of the investigation." --The New York Times

SOCIALIST UTOPIA VENEZUELA: On the Verge of Complete Revolution

By James Holbrooks

Venezuela, a country with only $10 billion left in reserves to run on, is in trouble. The people are starving. The government has gone full-on authoritarian, and now desperate human beings are dying in the streets.

From an Associated Press report on Friday:

“Authorities in Venezuela say 12 people were killed overnight following looting and violence in the South American nation’s capital amid a spiraling political crisis.”

Continuing, the report further highlighted the gravity of the situation:

The 7 Most Heinous Crimes of the Obama DOJ

Writing at National Review, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy outlines the machinations of the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) against alleged insider trading. Led by the controversial Preet Bharara -- since fired by President Trump -- the office has been pilloried in the media for its tactics.

As McCarthy notes, there is general concern that "improper and abusive behavior by prosecutors has reached 'epidemic proportions'."

However, that's not the worst of it.

McCarthy lists seven high crimes and misdeameanors of the Obama DOJ that are worth remembering.

EXPOSED: The Left-Wing Media's Plot to Take Down the Trump Administration

By Roger Aronoff

The progressive media, and their left-wing allies, have been on an endless binge of Trump-bashing that began even before Donald Trump took office as president. This Trump derangement syndrome results from the fact that during the campaign, and later when he was elected, Trump took firm hold of the national debate and reshaped it in his image. But progressives have their own dueling national narrative, one which they are trying to reassert through the use of allegations of Russian collusion and through a war on "fake news."

BOMBSHELL: Obama CIA Head John Brennan Conspired With Foreign Spies to Interfere with 2016 Election

By Matthew Vadum

Although Russians may have aspired to influence the November election, the real election meddlers were Democrats in the Obama administration who conspired with foreign intelligence agencies against Donald Trump’s campaign, new media reports suggest.

The key player, we are learning, is the already infamous John O. Brennan but FBI Director James Comey also played a role. From January 2009 to March 2013, Brennan was Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and then Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from March 2013 until Obama’s last day as president.

George Neumayr explains at the American Spectator how pro-Islam, pro-Communist Brennan appears to have masterminded the operation.
