The story is all too familiar: America is facing a historic crime wave, and guns are to blame. With shootings and school violence near all-time highs, it’s time to have a serious talk about the Second Amendment and gun ownership in the modern world.
Did that opening get your attention? It should, but mainly because it’s blatantly false.
You wouldn’t know it by listening to the mainstream media, however. That false appraisal of crime in the U.S. is often spread by voices on the left, but the actual facts paint a very different picture. Continue reading →
Ben Szemkus details an experience he had at a 2007 NXIVM party in Hamden, Connecticut. Szemkus, an independent citizen, testifies that he saw porn star Stormy Daniels, and Clinton adviser Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner.

As the old adage goes, where there is smoke, there is fire. This week, a man attending a rally for President Trump in Minnesota held up a sign with a photo of Trump, and one of his close friends from the past, convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein—and Trump’s reaction is incredibly notable.
The image, which included the caption “Where is Jeffrey Epstein?” was apparently too offensive for Trump who told security to “Get him outta here. Go home to your mom darling, go home. Get him outta here. Out!” Continue reading →
Adding to the mountain of evidence that “oil trains are a disaster for our health, our safety, and our climate”—an argument environmentalists have been making for years—a 31-car freight train derailed in Iowa and started leaking crude oil into floodwaters on Friday morning, forcing evacuations of nearby homes and raising concerns about drinking water contamination.
The Sioux County Sheriff posted a video depicting the aftermath of the derailment near Doon on Facebook: Continue reading →
The violent threats against President Trump and his family are really ratcheting up this week. U.S. Marshals are now searching for a central Pennsylvania man accused of threatening President Trump and other officials. He’s at large and considered armed and dangerous. This came out last night and the president is ordering that all means possible be used to apprehend this guy. The suspect is 26-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania. Continue reading →
On the day Donald Trump was elected his supporters asked him to pardon the founder and frontman of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. They flooded social media demanding Assange be allowed to leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London without arrest and extradition to the United States.
For a long time I have observed the rancor in modern American political discourse, and I have become concerned about where all of this anger and frustration is taking us. In order for any society to function, there must be some form of government. And in order for government to function, a certain percentage of the population has to be willing to submit to the authority of that government. For example, there will always be a few tax protesters out there that refuse to pay their taxes, but if every single American suddenly decided to stop paying taxes our system of taxation would collapse overnight. Sure, the government could prosecute thousands of us, but if that crackdown still didn’t motivate people to start paying their taxes there is not much that could be done. The only reason any form of government works is because enough people buy into the narrative that the government is legitimate and should be respected. Here in the United States, fewer and fewer people are buying into that narrative. Continue reading →
We live in a state of perpetual war, and we never feel it. While you get your gelato at the hip place where they put those cute little mint leaves on the side, someone is being bombed in your name. While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names. Continue reading →
“The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.”
Trump made this statement on Monday. But it’s becoming rapidly apparent that the US government is, in fact, planning to build a series of massive tent cities that could potentially house thousands of migrants for months at a time.Continue reading →
On Friday, the millionaire and political activist tweeted a bizarre claim to explain why he had recently gone dark on Twitter. “I apologize for my three-day absence but I was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina and just woke up,” he wrote. “My enemies [managed] to spike something that I ingested. However, I am more difficult to kill than anyone can possibly imagine. I am back. Continue reading →
