This story is a perfect example of why everyone hates Congress.

The senate tried to pass a bill funding research and prevention of the Zika Virus. Democrats blocked it and fully intend to blame the GOP for any spread of the virus.

Western feminists are happy to talk about the ever growing threat of the patriarchy and trivial issues like mansplaining, but are often curiously silent about the plight of women in Muslim countries.

Author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali has noticed this silence and has a few questions for feminists.

Bernie voting for Hillary

After a long and bitter primary battle, Bernie Sanders is finally saying he’ll vote for Hillary Clinton, an admission that’s got to sting his most ardent supporters.

Like Elizabeth Warren, Sanders will now throw his support behind the official candidate of Wall Street and big banks. Unlike Warren, he’s not endorsing Hillary...

What do Democrats do when a Muslim terrorist commits mass murder? Push for gun control, of course.

Bill Whittle Guns Islam Orlando

Bill Whittle’s new Firewall video is pretty intense. In four minutes of commentary, he offers the straight dope to Obama and other Democrats who refuse to recognize the threat of radical Islam while trying to blame guns.

Whittle’s message is largely a response to the terror attack in Orlando and he addresses...

The Democratic Party is apparently taking cues from progressive campus protesters now. In a move reminiscent of a safe space at Mizzou, congressional proponents of gun control staged a sit-in on the House floor yesterday.

The irony is that these aging, 1960’s obsessed hipsters disguised as elected officials were actually protesting civil...

It should come as a surprise to no one that under Obama, the nation’s top law enforcement officer sounds more like a high school guidance counselor than a prosecutor.

The victims of a terror attack certainly deserve love and compassion but for an attorney general to say this is the best response...
