If you’re having trouble sleeping at night over what’s happening to our country, this won’t help. Arrests were recently made in Los Angeles, New York City, and Philadelphia involving eight individuals from Tajikistan, which is situated along the borders of Afghanistan, Pakistan, communist China, and other “stan” nations of the former Soviet Union. The population is estimated to be at least 95% Muslim, making the country a hotbed of radical Islamic terrorism. One of the suspected terrorists reportedly used the Biden administration’s app to get into the United States. Supposedly, the… Read More

Hunter Biden was found guilty today on three felony gun charges. It would have been an egregious example of what is called “jury nullification” if the jurors deliberately ignored the facts of the case and refused to convict. It was crystal clear that Hunter lied about not being on drugs when he filled out a federal form in order to illegally purchase a gun. But don’t lose sight of the bigger story. The most scandalous things Hunter did have nothing to do with this.

Over the weekend, to the great joy of Israelis, four hostages kidnapped on October 7th were rescued by the Israeli Defense Forces. The hostages were being held in the home of a “civilian,” Abdallah Aljamal, a spokesman for Hamas and journalist for Al Jazeera and the Palestinian Chronicle. The latter media outlet holds 501(c)3 non-profit status here in the United States. Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., there was a previously planned but outrageous demonstration of Hamas supporters. They surrounded the White House and yelled their support for jihad and martyrdom. They also defaced… Read More

First, the bad news. In a number of states now, particularly the Rust Belt states, it appears that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s independent candidacy is hurting Donald Trump more than Joe Biden. In head-to-head matchups, Trump leads or ties Biden in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. But with Kennedy in the race, Biden leads all three.  The good news is that Fox News, which has historically underestimated Trump’s vote, just released new polling results in four states that are really encouraging. They show Trump winning Florida by a slightly larger margin than he won in 2020. But the… Read More

Many Americans are increasingly concerned about Joe Biden’s age (81) and his mental acuity. Our oldest president wants four more years, but voters don’t believe he’s up to the task. Biden shills insist he’s totally fine and hasn’t lost a step. Now comes a detailed Wall Street Journal report warning that Biden is showing “signs of slipping” behind closed doors. This blockbuster story did not come from the Journal’s right-leaning editorial board, but from its left-leaning news division. Three reporters interviewed more than 45 people, including Democrat and Republican members of Congress… Read More

It’s still early, but there is some measurable evidence that Alvin Bragg’s kangaroo court may have succeeded in its ultimate purpose. Two polls that previously showed Donald Trump tied or leading Joe Biden now have him narrowly trailing, suggesting that the Manhattan conviction may hurt Trump’s standing with committed voters. That said, other polls find Trump is still leading Biden. In addition, a new Fox News survey finds Trump dominating Biden on major issues like the economy, crime, immigration, foreign policy, and fitness for office.

​​​​​​​Former President Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Fox News and reacted to his Manhattan trial. When asked about his faith and how he is holding up against so much adversity, Trump expressed how grateful he was that so many Americans are praying for him, and he spoke about the importance of religion in society. Here’s an excerpt of his remarks: “It’s such a beautiful thing, you know. . .  When you look at all of this bad stuff going on, they have nothing to look up to. They have no God; they have no anything. They kill people, they beat people, they push people into… Read More

The neo-Marxist left has just pushed America to the edge of an abyss. Can we keep the constitutional Republic that our Founding Fathers gave us? Or will we become just another banana republic? The fate of our nation is in your hands. You may be sick of hearing, “This is the most important election in my lifetime.” Well, that’s not an exaggeration anymore. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION IN OUR LIFETIME! The left is so desperate to maintain power that it has perverted the rule of law in order to rule.

As I write this, things in Judge Juan Merchan’s courtroom do not look good. His instructions to the jury were clearly biased in favor of the prosecution. Donald Trump said yesterday that Mother Teresa could not survive this rigged process. It’s a good point, and the left hated Mother Teresa, too. Many legal analysts seem to believe that the jury’s questions suggest they are buying into the prosecution’s case. My good friend Mark Levin doesn’t seem very optimistic. He said Trump’s lawyers should be ready to immediately appeal to the Supreme Court. Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz… Read More

The Biden White House has insisted that Donald Trump’s prosecutions are not political in any way and that this is just the legal system at work, proving that no one is above the law. But what did they do yesterday? The Biden campaign sent a wrecking crew, led by left-wing actor Robert DeNiro, to hold a big press conference outside the Manhattan courthouse as closing arguments in Trump’s bogus bookkeeping trial were underway. What a revealing spectacle that was. DeNiro may be a good actor, but he’s a terrible legal and political analyst.

It’s rare for European nations to adopt a stronger foreign policy position than the United States. So, it is worth taking note when it happens, and it is happening right now. There are disturbing reports that the Biden administration is pressuring our European allies, especially Britain and France, to back down when it comes to Iran’s nuclear program. To say that Tehran’s pursuit of weapons of mass destruction has continued unabated during the Biden presidency is a severe understatement. Joe Biden has enabled Iran’s pursuit of weapons of mass destruction by repeatedly lifting sanctions… Read More

Democrats have not been shy about their desire to “fundamentally transform” the courts. They have repeatedly called for packing the Supreme Court with additional left-wing activists in order to end the court’s conservative majority. While they haven’t managed to do that yet, they are having success transforming the lower federal courts. So far, the Senate has confirmed 200 Biden judicial nominees, and they are all left-wing ideologues. They are the kinds of judges who are responsible for the insane headlines you often read that defy common sense and the Constitution. Let me give you… Read More

There was an extraordinarily disturbing development yesterday that barely got any notice. Newly released court documents show that the FBI was authorized to use deadly force during the unprecedented raid at Mar-a-Lago. The Biden Justice Department insists this is just standard operating procedure when the FBI conducts a raid. Well, this was not a standard FBI raid of a dangerous criminal. It was the home of the former president of the United States, who even then was the leading opponent of the current president of the United States in the upcoming election.

Yesterday, we reported on the outrage triggered by the decision of the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) chief prosecutor to seek arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli defense minister. I was also struck by the absurdity of the ICC citing Bibi Netanyahu as a war criminal while the entire world – including the Biden State Department – offered condolences on the death of the president of Iran, who was nicknamed “The Butcher of Tehran.” Would we have sent condolences to Germany if Hitler had died?

Joe Biden doesn’t seem to like America all that much. The man who claimed he wanted to unite the country just gave a speech that did nothing but trash the country and inflame racial tensions. Biden gave the commencement speech yesterday at Morehouse College, a historically black college located in Atlanta, Georgia. It has a long list of distinguished alumni that includes congressmen and cabinet secretaries, as well as notable figures like Herman Cain, Samuel L. Jackson, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Biden could have delivered an inspirational address that pointed to the success of any… Read More

“Open Borders” Biden may have a big problem on his hands. But it remains to be seen if the American people will ever know about it. Did you know that over the last few years, there have been repeated attempts by Chinese nationals to gain access to American military bases? This isn’t just a couple of random incidents. It’s happened more than 100 times. Did you know that? Congress just held a hearing about this issue, trying to figure out what the heck is going on. You’d think that would be big news.

There are reports that Joe Biden is about to issue an executive order to close the southern border when illegal crossings are exceeding 4,000 a day. Biden’s handlers obviously understand how badly the immigration issue is hurting him, and they’re desperate to show some “action.” But this plan is total baloney. For starters, 4,000 crossings a day is still 1,460,000 illegal aliens entering our country a year. So, Biden thinks we’re supposed to tolerate nearly 1.5 million illegal aliens crossing our border. That’s not a “closed border.”

It is impossible to exaggerate the extent to which the left is willing to go to indoctrinate our children with the LGBTQ agenda. For example, Joe Biden is using the federal government to force every school in the country to allow boys into our daughters’ bathrooms and locker rooms. It is also impossible to exaggerate the great lengths they will go to in order to hide what they are doing. The latest example comes from La Costa Heights Elementary School in Carlsbad, where a fifth-grade class was required to read the book My Shadow Is Pink.

We got a report this morning on the latest measure of inflation, and it was bad news for Joe Biden. The producer price index, which measures the cost of goods and services being produced, went up much higher than expected. Economists had predicted an increase of 0.3% for April, or 3.6% on an annualized basis. But the producer price index came in at 0.5% for the month, or 6% on an annualized basis. That’s a very high number considering that the Federal Reserve’s stated goal is a 2% inflation rate. Usually, there is a strong relationship between producer and consumer prices. As one… Read More

Donald Trump held an unbelievable rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, Saturday. Some Trump enthusiasts said as many as 100,000 people turned out. Seems high.   An official for the city of Wildwood estimated the group was at least 80,000 strong. Some New Jersey papers said the crowd was 12,000 people. No way! Let’s just say it was around 50,000 people. That’s still huge! Last year, Trump held an event in South Carolina that reportedly drew 50,000. But that was ruby red South Carolina, not deep blue New Jersey!

There is an old adage in Washington: “Personnel is policy.” The meaning is obvious enough: The people appointed to top positions make policy through their daily actions, and those actions and policies are often influenced by their own agendas, biases, and ideologies. The Biden administration’s shocking betrayal of Israel is raising serious concerns about Maher Bitar, the White House Coordinator for Intelligence and Defense Policy.

I saw this disturbing photo this morning. It looks like a typical anti-Israel protest in Tehran or Damascus. But when I checked the caption to find out in which Islamic hellhole this picture was taken, I was surprised to learn that it was Chicago.   Further west, the sanctuary city of Denver has welcomed illegal aliens and provides them with food and rental assistance for six months. Not surprisingly, many illegal aliens are heading to Denver.   Giving handouts to illegal aliens is a bad idea. It’s just a magnet for more illegal immigration. But at least you’d think they would have some… Read More

The Biden White House continues to send mixed messages about its support for our ally Israel as it fights the Islamic supremacists of Hamas. Joe Biden has made it clear that he does not want Israel to crush the last Hamas stronghold in Rafah. He is even blocking weapons shipments to Israel as it moves to finish the job. National Security spokesman John Kirby was asked whether the Biden administration supported Israel’s efforts to destroy Hamas. In one breath, Kirby affirmed Israel’s right to defend itself, but then added, “I’ve said many times here, you’re not going to eliminate an… Read More

In previous reports, we have exposed the left-wing donors, radical Islamist groups, and extremist forces that are funding and coordinating the anti-Israel protests on our college campuses. For those still under the impression that this is all about Israel’s foreign policy or America’s foreign policy, let me just clarify for you what we know is motivating this movement and what is really behind these protests. I’m not talking about every single individual involved, but the inspiration and worldview of the movement and its radical leaders.

This is what the statue of George Washington at George Washington University in our nation’s capital currently looks like. Washington is the epitome of an American hero. He was famously eulogized as, “First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”   But he is trash to the trash occupying George Washington University. This desecration is beyond disgusting. It’s very telling that the first impulse of these anti-Israel protesters is to attack symbols of America.   Some well-meaning students may be involved in these campus occupations. But at its core, this is an anti-… Read More

President Biden issued a proclamation Wednesday recognizing the National Day of Prayer. I know the National Day of Prayer organizers were very happy he did that. And he actually mentioned God twice. That’s a big improvement over other proclamations he has issued. (Here and here.) But when I heard the news, I quickly left Washington because I was worried lightning might smite the city. In my view, there’s nothing good about Biden issuing his proclamation in the wake of his constant promoting of abortion on demand and forcing our daughters to share bathrooms with boys.

The latest Economist poll asked a very interesting question: “Do you feel that things in this country these days are under control or out of control?” Nearly 70% of Americans said our country is “out of control.” They’re right. Everywhere we look, things are out of control. Boys claiming to be girls are invading our daughters’ locker rooms and bathrooms. Millions of people from all over the world are invading our country across our wide-open borders. Crime in our major cities is forcing many businesses to close. The economy is so bad that many young Americans can’t afford to… Read More

Watching the disgusting outbursts of anti-Semitism on our college campuses lately has been deeply disturbing. Even worse has been the cowardice of too many university presidents and the silence from the president of the United States. Yet as the sun rose this morning, there were signs of bravery and courage reasserting themselves. (Here and here.) But the biggest sign of American renewal was at UCLA, where Jewish students have been verbally accosted and physically assaulted. When Passover ended last night, Jewish students and volunteers from the surrounding community decided to take… Read More

Another deadline for campus protesters at Columbia University to disperse expired yesterday afternoon. When the university warned that the remaining students at the “Gaza Solidary Encampment” faced suspension, the student radicals took note and moved. They forcibly occupied Hamilton Hall, which is a historic building. It is named after Alexander Hamilton. It has Tiffany stained-glass windows of the Roman poet Virgil and the Greek playwright Sophocles. Hamilton Hall was also the site of a famous student takeover in 1968 by actual anti-war students. Today’s occupiers of Hamilton Hall… Read More

I have been reading recently how radical Islamists set out to capture American universities over the past few decades. (Here and here.) They saw “higher education” as a way to influence debate and policy and a way they could “win” over the long term. Billions of dollars poured into American institutions to fund new departments and programs focused on the Middle East and Islamic Studies. Of course, the great majority of these professors espouse anti-Israel views. Communist China has had a decades old program to take over American universities. Beijing put Confucius Institutes on more… Read More
