Liberals whine about conservative philanthropists like the Koch brothers or the Mercer family all the time. These individuals generally work to keep markets free, protect civil liberties, and essentially keep America from going off the rails. Liberal and progressive billionaires like George Soros, however, attempt to undermine the democratic process and undo the decisions of free people. Why? Because they think they know better.
That’s why Hungary just enacted a strengthened version of the “Stop Soros” legislation it previously announced. Soros has been working through non-governmental organizations to attack Hungary’s strict anti-immigration policies.
Victor Orban, the Hungarian president, is done with Soros and his meddling. The Hungarian people elected Orban, they knew what his policies were, and they want immigration to be restricted. Soros needs to stop trying to subvert the will of the people there. (Read More…)
We’ve all heard about the tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Nikolas Cruz, a former student at the school, was a clearly disturbed young man who had a propensity for violence. His social media accounts were filled with narcissistic photos of him wielding various firearms and knives and hints at him committing animal cruelty.
Cruz had planned his attack in advance and had an idea of what he wanted to do. When he walked into the school with his firearm in a duffle bag, he pulled the fire alarm and dropped smoke grenades to force the students to bottleneck into the hallways.
It was then that he went on his shooting spree before eventually dropping his weaponry in a hallway and escaping amongst the fleeing students. Cruz’s behavior was that of a monster. We need to find some way to identify people like him before they strike. (Read More…)
A few weeks ago Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) announced that he will not run for another term in the House. Conservatives, including yours truly, were upset to hear this news. Gowdy has served honorably, earning a reputation as a tenacious watchdog against corruption and a clear-headed investigator into wrongdoing. But his exit left many wondering why he was leaving.
Now we know. It’s not that he just misses being a practicing attorney, it’s that he misses being in a profession where facts and reality matter. And, generally speaking, the law is a realm in which facts are often determinative of the outcome. In Congress, on the other hand, facts play second fiddle to politics. Gowdy is right as usual, but it’s still sad to see him go. (Read More…)
On Wednesday, Melania Trump went to visit sick children at the Children’s Inn at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. She spent her day with the children making Valentines Day cards, cookies, and taking time out to connect with the children.
Melania did all this while looking like her usual, stunning self. She has a great heart and the fashion instincts to match. Wednesday was a horrible day but Melania was at least able to brighten it for some sick children, and that’s worth recognizing. (Read More…)
The FBI has been bruised and battered in recent months. The Florida shooting gave it yet another body blow. Apparently, the FBI was warned about the shooter well in advance of this week’s terrible attack.
Ben Bennight, a YouTube personality, tipped off the FBI after noticing that the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, commented that he “wanted to be a professional school shooter” on one of his videos. Bennight quickly sent a tip to the FBI, but they never properly followed up. And now 17 people are dead and many are wounded. (Read More…)
President Trump has taken a very strong stance on immigration. From his campaign until now, he’s been consistent: America needs a wall, it needs to enforce its immigration laws, and it needs to know who is coming in and out of its borders. For conservatives this is obvious, but it seems to drive liberals up the wall.
Trump, thankfully, is staying strong on his promises. At a White House meeting with the National Sheriff’s Association, he told sheriffs from around the country that he and Americans “want securing the border and a wall, ending chain migration, and canceling the visa lottery.” Hopefully, Trump is able to deliver on his promise, and Amerca can have a functioning immigration system once more.
