November 30, 2018 by

2

By Star Parker ~ The headlines about the incoming 116th Congress scream that our representation has never been so “young,” so “blue,” so “diverse.” If diversity is about how people look, this Congress is very diverse.

2

By Andrew Bolt ~ Janet Albrechtsen on the new racism:  When does embracing race as a point of distinction become retrograde to our common humanity?

By Andrew Bolt ~ Here in Australia, the former High Court judge Dyson Heydon is right: the persecution of Christians is coming in this new age of savagery and intolerance.

By Frank Salvato ~ The title is a quote from a Facebook post in reaction to the senseless and fatal attack that took place at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday.

June 29, 2017 by

January 15, 2017 by

0

By Brent Bozell and Tim Graham ~ Critics of the Hollywood Left chuckled when Hillary Clinton lost the election. Those dramatic videos full of celebrity ardor for the Clintons flopped.

By Tom McLaughlin ~ Racist, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, misogynist – all these epithets now aimed at Donald Trump and his supporters used to be directed my way. Why?
