In comments that can only be described as “bizarre,” a white, American clergyman who spoke at a Democratic National Convention event last week expressed weariness at the idea that his “Muslim friends” should feel the need to apologize for acts of terror, and said that it is actually white Christian men who should be apologizing for such acts. Rev. Ron Stief, who is the executive director of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, made his remarks while speaking as part of a panel discussion. Said Stief, “I’m tired of my Muslim friends having to be the ones having to stand... Read more →


In case you had any lingering doubts about the indecency of hardened Democrats when it comes to the matter of protecting life… At the Democratic National Convention this past week, featured speakers included Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, one of the leading pro-abortion groups in the United States. By the way, before we proceed, it’s worth noting that NARAL Pro-Choice America used to be known simply as NARAL, which stands for “National Abortion Rights Action League.” However, in the interest of trying to further hide the word “abortion” while simultaneously being a pro-abortion outfit, NARAL figured it...

The rate of homeownership in the U.S. has fallen to a low that, up until a relative handful of years ago, would have seemed unimaginable. According to U.S. Census data, the rate is now just 62.9 percent, the same level at which it sat back in 1965. The rate of homeownership in America was nearly 70 percent before the bottom fell out of the real estate market as a result of the 2008 crash. CNBC real estate reporter Diana Olick, in an article entitled, “Millennials cause homeownership rate to drop to lowest level since 1965,” informs us, as the title... Read more →


French President Francois Hollande has put out the call, seeking all able-bodied countrymen to enlist in a new, civilian-oriented National Guard designed specifically to help the besieged nation in its fight against terrorism within its borders. The response has already been substantial, with Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirming that “2,500 French people have said they are interested and we are getting constant new inquiries.” As a matter of fact, even Marion Le Pen, the niece of Marine Le Pen, head of the National Front, France’s leading right-wing political party, tweeted, “Faced with the threat that weighs on France, I decided...

As Bernie Sanders supporters bailed on their Democrat brethren at the convention this week, one Sanders delegate is claiming that the DNC was filling the gaps with paid seat-fillers in an effort to present a unified front for the Democratic Party as the gathering wound to a close. The obviously intelligent and articulate delegate described what he saw, and what his suspicions were, in a video piece that is making the rounds on social media, most notably at InfoWars, the home of well-known conservative libertarian and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. According to the delegate, the first thing that made him... Read more →


An article by Charles Hurt appearing over at The Washington Times does a great job illustrating an important truth about Bernie Sanders, one that, even now, escapes loads of obsequious followers: Bernie Sanders lost the nomination because losing is what Bernie Sanders has done all along. It is, admittedly, a much less-than-charitable view of the longtime public servant, but the plain fact is, as Hurt clearly explains, Bernie is a professional also-ran, even as he has managed to win several elections in kooky Vermont. Yes, the tables were turned against Bernie this year at the highest levels of the Democratic... Read more →


John Hinckley, Jr., the man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan back in 1981, will soon be released from a mental hospital in Washington, DC. On Wednesday, federal judge Paul Friedman granted Hinckley a “full-time convalescent leave,” which means he will shortly be a free man, save for a few mild restrictions. In 2003, Judge Friedman began allowing Hinckley to make short, daytime visits to his parents’ home in Williamsburg, Virginia, and has steadily increased the permitted duration of Hinckley’s visits away from St. Elizabeth’s hospital over the years. The judge’s decision granting Hinckley the full-time leave, to begin... Read more →


The civilized world may be at war with ISIS, but you would never know that from the lineup of speakers at the Democratic National Convention so far this week. The DNC was hammered hard on Tuesday, following the opening day and night of the gathering on Monday, when, out of 61 speakers to address the assembled, not one mentioned ISIS, or even the terror threat, more generally. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and VP ticket-mate Mike Pence were each quick to criticize the absence of any mentions of the terror threat on the first day of the Democratic Convention. Speaking... Read more →


France is under siege. Is there really any other way to look at it? Terror attacks in France by radical Islamists are now so frequent that they seem to occur on a daily basis, and while that may not (yet) be the literal truth, the fact that every French citizen must be constantly on guard for the next brutal attack means that the country is in, indeed, in a state of war. The latest vicious act of terror in that beautiful country was perpetrated on Tuesday morning in the town of Saint Etienne du Rouvray, when two radical Islamists invaded... Read more →


According to Breitbart News, Speaker Paul Ryan, long entrenched in the camp of establishment Republicans who are embarrassingly weak on the subject of illegal immigration, was apparently in a form rare even for him when he and his security staff literally fled from his home on Saturday as a group of mothers tried to show the speaker photos of their children murdered by illegals. The mothers held a press conference at Ryan’s estate…or, more precisely, in front of it, because, ironically enough, there is a wall surrounding the residence to keep everyone out…in part to announce their intention to support...

The mother of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador to Libya who was killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, has asked that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and other Republican leaders cease invoking her son’s name on behalf of the Republican Party’s effort to win the White House in November. In a letter-to-the-editor that was published Saturday in The New York Times, Steven’s mother, Mary Commanday, wrote, “As Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens’s mother, I am writing to object to any mention of his name and death in Benghazi, Libya, by Donald Trump’s campaign and the... Read more →


When news broke of the Democratic National Committee’s underhanded effort…documented through a variety of released emails, with more surely to come…to see to it that Bernie Sanders would never become the party’s standard-bearer, his initial response seemed very weak. When DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said she was stepping down, he praised her for doing so, and even said she should be thanked for her years of service. Mind you, this is the same Bernie Sanders whose entire campaign was built on the idea that “the system” is basically corrupt and benefits only the elites. Sanders doubled down on his... Read more →

An American cardinal, a prelate based in Rome, has gone on the record with his opinion that Islam is fundamentally different from other religions, in that it is “a form of government” that “wants to govern the world.” Cardinal Raymond Burke made his remarks to the Religion News Service in the course of promoting his new book, Hope for the World: To Unite All Things in Christ. Burke was critical of Catholic leaders for assuming the posture that Islam is a religion like any other, saying, “That is simply not the case.” “When they [Muslims) become a majority in any...
