    The RNC Goes Unconventional
    July 24, 2020

    Nothing about 2020 is normal -- including, it turns out, the Republican National Convention. After weeks of trying to make the event work, the president surprised people on Thursday with the announcement that he was canceling the Jacksonville celebration. Worried about the spike in coronavirus cases, especially in Florida, President Trump decided "to have a big convention is not the right time. I have to protect the American people."

    Lost and Founders: America's Answers in the Past
    July 24, 2020

    Today's Americans aren't the first ones to wonder if our country has lost its way. Abraham Lincoln used to worry, when the generation of the founders had died out, that we'd lost the living memory we'd need to carry on their legacy. "I think we're back there again," Katharine Gorka says. And if this nation is going to survive, we need to take a trip down memory lane, she insists, and remind ourselves what made America what it is. (continue reading...)

    The Oregon Trail to Anarchy
    July 23, 2020

    When Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) decided to throw on a mask and join the protestors Wednesday night, he found out pretty quickly that it wasn't just Donald Trump they despised. "It didn't go well for Wheeler," one reporter kindly put it. Booed, chased with leaf blowers, taunted, and shouted down, the mayor looked bewildered when he said, "Some of these people hate my guts." For the mayor, whose spent the last 56 days defending his city's criminals, it was one way to learn: protecting the mobs won't appease them. (continue reading...)

    Planned Parenthood Ditches Sanger, Keeps Philosophy
    July 23, 2020

    Two weeks ago, while statues were being roped down and schools were racing to change their "offensive" namesakes, Alexandria Desanctis wondered, "How long will Margaret Sanger last?" Surely, in the rush to erase the racists, the founder of Planned Parenthood was at the top of someone's list. "She was, after all, a foremost proponent of the eugenics movement -- motivated by her particular animus toward poor non-whites." Now, after more than 100 years of defending that legacy, at least one New York location has had enough. (continue reading...)

    China ups Its Spy Game
    July 22, 2020

    The Chinese Consulate in Houston was instructed to close by U.S. officials on Tuesday, and its employees have 72 hours to leave. While the details remain unknown, State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said China "has engaged for years in massive illegal spying and influence operations throughout the United States against U.S. government officials and American citizens." As if to prove their guilt, Chinese consulate workers appeared to burn documents in the courtyard of the compound later that evening, prompting nearby residents to call the fire department.

    Portland's Failblazers
    July 22, 2020

    They aren't your typical weapons -- pool noodles, hockey sticks, umbrellas, and cigarette lighters -- but thanks to some gutless local officials, they're all the Portland rioters need to paralyze the whole city. For 55 consecutive nights, a collection of pathetic politicians has watched the throngs burn, loot, and smash their way through the town. And what is the media's biggest story? That President Trump, the only person who seems to care if the city becomes a pile of flaming rubble, is supposedly creating a "constitutional crisis" by being the one adult in the room willing to address it.

    Trump Vows to Fight Fires with Fire
    July 22, 2020

    "Will they stop at burning an empty church?" It was a sobering question, but Ellen Fantani, who's been tracking the spike in anti-Christian attacks across Europe, can't help but wonder. "How much worse will it get?" she said, repeating the reporter's question. "Certainly, the climate today," on her continent and ours, "does not leave me optimistic." (continue reading...)
