Trump Foreign Policy Wins Just Keep on Coming

THIS IS HUGE!!!

Thanks to the courage of the UAE, it appears more Arab nations on coming on board!

from the American Thinker:

Trump’s triumph with UAE-Israel accord has unleashed a ‘preference cascade’ of Middle East peace developments

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC, May 15, 2017.

A dam has broken and our media are desperate to avert our eyes from it.  I am stunned at the succession of positive developments that has followed the announcement almost a month ago that the United Arab Emirates is normalizing relations with Israel. Momentum is accelerating toward the long dreamed-of goal of peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors. read more

Leftists Ruin Everything they Touch – Ayn Rand Institute is no Exception

from the American Thinker:

The Ayn Rand Institute Does Not Speak for Ayn Rand

The Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) was founded in 1985, three years after Ayn Rand’s death, by Ed Snider and Leonard Peikoff, Rand’s legal heir.  The stated purpose of the Institute was “to introduce young people to Ayn Rand’s novels, to support scholarship and research based on her ideas, and to promote the principles of reason, rational self-interest, individual rights and laissez-faire capitalism to the widest possible audience.”

The current website states: “ARI also engages in research and advocacy efforts, applying Rand’s ideas to current issues and seeking to promote her philosophical principles of reason, rational self-interest and laissez-faire.” read more

The Chicago Tribune Punishes Top Columnist for Being Even-Handed

from the American Thinker:

Cancel culture attacks John Kass, the Chicago Tribune’s top columnist

Since 1980, John Kass has been a fixture at the Chicago Tribune, where he writes columns about political topics. The Tribune has labeled him their “lead columnist.” Kass hews conservative but works to be even-handed.

That even-handedness wasn’t enough to save Kass, though, when he asserted, correctly, that prosecutors who got massive election funding from George Soros groups are a big part of the problem with the growing lawlessness in America’s Democrat-run cities. The same leftists who loath Israel sprang to Soros’s defense: Kass, they said, was anti-Semitic, and had to be punished. read more

The Left must get rid of Kayleigh McEnany by any means

from American Thinker:

Kayleigh McEnany is so effective that the MSM is now lying by deceptively editing her comments

Yesterday saw a new low in irresponsible media reporting on a briefing by a presidential press secretary.  Many media outlets outright lied about what Kayleigh McEnany said by cutting her off in mid-sentence in a comment on school reopening, thereby creating an impression that was opposite of the truth. read more

Turns Out Gorsuch is Just Another Black-Robed Legislator

from the American Thinker:

Et tu, Gorsuch?

Et tu, Gorsuch?  A little over three years into a lifetime appointment, and he’s already speaking for Justice Ginsburg when it comes to matters of transsexualism and forgotten all about Justice Scalia’s textualism.

No matter how hard we try, our “conservative” judges belly-flop into “strict constructionist” poseurs and weak-kneed judicial activists faster than Chief Justice Roberts can rewrite Obamacare into a tax.  I mean, you try to keep these “originalist” jurists on a philosophically sound path.  You teach them “right” from “wrong.”  You instill in them a respect for the law and the importance of always telling the truth.  You can’t be with them all the time, though.  You know they’re being tempted by strange leftists to rule by emotion and always let the “ends justify the means,” but you tell yourself, “we can count on a judge described by many as Justice Scalia’s natural successor, right?”  Right? read more

Is Coronavirus becoming another Settled Science?

from the American Thinker:

Why the Left is Weaponizing Science

According to some “experts,” science can sometimes be settled, meaning that in certain areas of study, the evidence has been deemed so overwhelming and indisputable that further debate is not only unnecessary, it is forbidden. Only one interpretation of this evidence is possible. However, science is really nothing more than a tool, developed by humans for the purposes of studying our universe and the world on which we live. And scientists are human beings, which means they are prone to making mistakes. It would be just as silly to genuflect as a show of reverence to science as it would be for a carpenter to worship his hammer. It is helpful to remember that even the person who graduates from medical school at the very bottom of the class has still earned the right to be called “doctor.” read more

Green Activists Never Take a Break

Not even during a pandemic, do the enviro-weenies take a break. Nothing will stand in the way of seeing their dream of 100% emission free energy. And after they’ve achieved that, they can purchase the bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale.

from the American Thinker:

Clean Energy Via Legislative Diktat

For those enamored by the clean electric-car, smoke-and-mirrors “emission elsewhere scheme” comes the recently enacted “Virginia Clean Economy Act”, which includes one of the largest energy storage targets in the country at 2.4 GW by 2035, and prompts state regulators to craft a carbon dioxide cap and trade program that meets the objectives of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). read more

Salon Owner is Face of the New Civil Rights Movement

from the American Thinker:

Shelley Luther is America’s New Rosa Parks

Dallas, Texas salon owner Shelley Luther has become the face of the movement to free the nation from the oppressive lockdowns imposed by despotic governors and mayors.

She is a modern-day Rosa Parks, but more on that in a moment.

An inspiration in these dark times to patriotic Americans who yearn to have their most basic constitutional rights respected, Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail on May 5 for daring to open her salon despite emergency decrees mandating the continued forced closure of businesses like hers that have arbitrarily been deemed non-essential.

But Luther was liberated May 7 after the Supreme Court of Texas ordered her released “pending final disposition of this case.”  On May 8, Texas will allow hair salons to reopen with conditions. read more

We Didn’t Need Such Draconian Virus Control Measures

from the American Thinker:

We made a terrible mistake

We’re told that social distancing is working because we’re flattening the curve.  How do we know that those two things are related?  There isn’t that all-important-for-good-science control group.  For all we know, the result would have been similar if we hadn’t put such draconian measures in place. read more

Not Covid Related – A New Muslim Wave Coming to Europe

Why is Turkey still a member of NATO? Of course one could also ask why we’re a member anymore, but that’s another discussion. Turkey, and more specifically its president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is no friend of Europe or America. And now Erdoğan has promised to unleashed vast amounts of Muslim refugees on its European “allies.” All by sending them through Greece. What a guy.

from American Thinker: 

While the media are riveted by coronavirus, the Greece-Turkey border is exploding

Even as Americans are obsessed with whether Trump is controlling the Wuhan Virus or whether Costco will have more toilet paper, unnerving things are happening on the Greece-Turkey border.  Turkey has unleashed tens of thousands of Muslim refugees who are headed to Europe, an invasion that, if successful, could destroy Europe’s economy and will advance the demographic change started in 2015. read more
