Crazy People Are Dangerous

  Protesters in St. Louis are angry because . . . Well, does it really matter why they’re angry? They’re protesters. Being angry is sort of a prerequisite for being a protester. “Defund the police” is their demand, because the protesters are Democrats and Democrats hate police.

The New York Times Smears French Author Who Predicted Our Current Crisis

Twenty-five years ago, when a friend sent me a copy of Jean Raspail’s The Camp of the Saints, it was a book so taboo that you were considered racist merely for knowing of its existence.

Despite their devotion to #BlackLivesMatter, CNN will never mention this crime: DOUGLASVILLE, GA — A Douglasville man who authorities say murdered his mother and niece is in the Douglas County Jail as of Thursday afternoon. Derrick Lashun Hobbs, […]

Democrats Celebrate Their Heritage
