The More Young Men Are Bathed in Femininity, the More ‘Toxic Masculinity’ You Will See

One of the most ironic things about the constant “toxic masculinity” complaints that we hear these days is that we live in an overly feminized culture where most of the “toxic” males seem to have either been raised without fathers or claim to be adherents of feminism. The statistics on men raised without fathers are grim almost beyond belief. × 101 Things All Young Adults Should Know by Sir John Hawkins John Hawkins’s book 101 Things All Young Adults Should Know is filled with lessons that newly minted adults need in order to get the most out of life.

Children Separated at the Border?

Let’s start with the fact that Democrats are desperate. Republican economic policies, pursued by the Trump administration and enacted by the Republican Congress, have our economy humming along at a historic rate. Overseas, the Trump administration has moved to advance America’s trade interests and to neutralize some of the principal threats against us, including that from North Korea. What is a loyal Democrat to do? Change the subject. Hence the obsession, which has blown up over the past few days, with the alleged separation of parents from their children at the country’s Southern border. Some questions seem to be rarely asked. What families are we talking about? Why are they at the Southern border in the first place? How long does the alleged separation last, and what is the reason for it? What were the policies of past administrations? Instead, we have seen an over-the-top attack on the Trump administration, and Republicans in general. Although, as far as I can tell, the photos of children in cages date from the Obama era. Still, it’s a complicated situation. A reporter called me on Friday asking for a quote on the issue. I told her that I have been too busy to investigate it beyond the headline level, and, being unable to offer any intelligent comment, I preferred to stay silent. She thought this a remarkable instance of self-restraint. I still...

No, the House-passed FIRST STEP Act won’t release criminal aliens from prison

There is much concern from those against the House-passed FIRST STEP Act that it will cause a plethora of chaos and more gang-riddled communities due to its attempt to reduce recidivism. The bill is using methods which have worked quite well in Texas, Georgia, and other Republican-led states in not only reducing crime but also averting expected corrections costs. Yet, opponents are preying on the fears of those who do not understand why tossing someone in a hole then throwing away the key may not be the best way to rid the country of crime. They claim FIRST STEP...

Obama Was the Reason Hillary Wasn’t Prosecuted

RUSH: I am gonna pat myself on the back for this, because it has been for years that it has been my opinion — and I’ve shared it with you — that the real reason Hillary Clinton wasn’t prosecuted — and, of course, there are many — one, they didn’t want to harm her; two, they wanted to help her. All that’s true. But above that, they could not prosecute her, because that would have made it official that Barack Obama had lied, and it’s all about her illegal server. Do you know what we learned in this IG...

Fireworks expected as DOJ watchdog Horowitz, FBI boss Wray face Senate Judiciary for hearing

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, left, and FBI Director Christopher Wray  (AP) FBI Director Christopher Wray and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz are expected to be the centers of attention Monday when they testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Horowitz’s bombshell report on the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s personal email server. Horowitz’s report, released Thursday, singled out then-FBI Director James Comey for harsh criticism and referred five other bureau employees for potential disciplinary action. Most notably, Horowitz found that anti-Trump text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page “potentially indicated or created...

Guard Who Ignored Parkland Shooter Was Caught Sexually Harassing Victim Year Before—Never Fired

As we reported extensively in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting in February, law enforcement failed on multiple levels that day, fumbling numerous opportunities to intervene in the attack. Now, months later it has been revealed that the first line of defense in the shooting, a guard for the school named Andrew Medina, was unfit for his position and should not have been trusted with the lives of children. Medina has been criticized for not taking proper action during the attack, and many critics say that if he did take action, he could have saved many lives. This...

UC Berkeley Trades Free Speech Fight For Global Warming Hoax

Sometimes, it’s hard to tell where America ends and California begins.  What is certain, however, is that the city of Berkeley may be the capital of liberal lunacy. Berkeley, and specifically the campus of the University of California that exists there, have been at the forefront of the delusional democratic narrative in recent years, fomenting a radicalization the likes of which we have never seen in our modern era.  This was, of course, in response to the election of Donald Trump as President…an event that the liberal left was “triggered” by to the extent that they formed a “resistance”....

Kellyanne Conway’s husband wants AG to look at alleged Trump campaign finance violations

George T. Conway (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) George Conway, husband of loyal White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has been at odds with President Trump since shortly after his election. He is now saying publicly that the campaign finance violations involving the Trump Foundation charity, recently alleged in a lawsuit, should be investigated by the feds. “These are very serious allegations, and they should be referred to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.” Conway Tweeted Sunday. These are obviously very serious allegations, and they should be referred to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. https://t.co/0jEBkI10Es — George Conway (@gtconway3d) June 17, 2018 Barbara D. Underwood, New York Attorney General filed a lawsuit on Thursday that stated monies from the Trump Foundation were used to pay off legal debts, promote Trump hotels, and fund the president’s campaign. According to The Hill. Trump is very vocal on things of this nature, he tweeted this about the lawsuit on Thursday: The sleazy New York Democrats, and their now disgraced (and run out of town) A.G. Eric Schneiderman, are doing everything they can to sue me on a foundation that took in $18,800,000 and gave out to charity more money than it took in, $19,200,000. I won’t settle this case!… — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2018 Kellyanne spoke up for the...

ABC Panics as Congressional Leaders Call for Mueller Probe to be Wrapped Up

It appears as though, with the long-awaited release of the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report exposing anti-Trump bias by senior FBI investigators, Republican Congressional leadership was finally ready to call for an end to the Special Counsel’s investigation. After House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) spoke out, ABC’s Good Morning America was fearful for the future of the investigation on Sunday morning. “There’s news this morning in the Russia investigation. New pressure on the Special Counsel Robert Mueller with two top Republicans calling for Mueller to wrap it up,” announced co-anchor,...

Former NSA/CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden compares U.S. border policy to Nazi extermination camps

The Resistance has lost its mind. Have you noticed that in the last few days the issue of children separated from parents arrested while illegally crossing the Mexican border has become the latest anti-Trump fury and obsession. This is not a new issue, but is now dominating the media and social media landscape as so many other issues have filled a slow news cycle void. The problem of separating children is a problem caused entirely by people crossing the border illegally with their children, which puts U.S. border enforcement in a terrible dilemma of either not enforcing immigration laws...

5 Women Who Lied About Being Raped

“Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch. Things women don’t lie about: rape.” – Lena Dunham The sentiment expressed in the quote above by Lena Dunham has become all too typical on the Left. If that had no consequences, it would be just one more thing liberals say as we roll our eyes and go on. However, there are real men paying a terrible price for this lie. Colleges have set up guilty-until-proven-innocent kangaroo courts where men have had their lives turned upside down after being falsely convicted of raping women. The #metoo movement has featured lots of accusations...

How to read a book

The cultural left exerts a tyrannical force policing our speech. To take just one small example, witness the case of novelist Lionel Shriver. The cases can be multiplied endlessly. You don’t need my help on this score. The cause of free speech threatens to become the exclusive property of conservatives, it has not already become so. Wherever the left holds sway, free speech is a dying if not dead letter. The utopia implicit in leftist thought provides for thought control as well. The left means to stamp out our heterodox thoughts as well as our nonconforming speech. Guilty thought gives rise to guilty speech! Traditional liberal thought arrived late in human history. With the fate of Socrates in mind, writers who took up political subjects from Plato forward nevertheless found the means to express their thought. They did so through the use of irony, concealing their true thought below the surface of their writings. This is the subject of Arthur Melzer’s superb 2014 book, Philosophy Between the Lines. I’ve been rereading it over the last month. Melzer is an incredible teacher. Just about every page of the book provides a model of, and a lesson in, humane learning. Damon Linker’s admiring review for The Week offers a particularly good summary. Melzer uses the terms “politic irony” and “pedagogic irony” to express the motives of those who wrote about politics...

FEC dismisses complaint against Trump campaign filed by one of David Brock’s groups

In 2016, the American Democracy Legal Fund (ADLF) filed a complaint with the FEC alleging that the Trump campaign was self-enriching by mentioning some of his businesses on the campaign trail. Friday, the FEC dismissed that claim. From Politico: The complaint from American Democracy Legal Fund alleged that represented a use of campaign funds to further Trump’s business and personal interests in violation of campaign finance law… But the FEC dismissed the complaints on a 3-1 vote, with Democratic commissioner Ellen Weintraub dissenting, after the agency’s general counsel recommended against moving forward. “The available information indicates that most of Trump’s...

The President’s Impromptu White House Lawn Interviews

RUSH: I mentioned the impromptu gaggle that happened today. Trump was watching TV in the Oval Office, and he sees that his favorite show is set up on the lawn, and that would be Fox & Friends. He sees Steve Doocy out there. So Trump sends out a tweet, “I think I’ll go out there and surprise my buddies at the most highly rated morning show, Fox & Friends.” So he walks out there. Secret Service in tow. The Drive-Bys mobbed him — I mean, literally mobbed him — as he’s on his way to where Doocy is set...

Hillary Clinton tells grads of pricey San Francisco school about her troubled youth

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks in New York City, April 6, 2017.  (Associated Press) Blame it on the bullies? In a surprise appearance Friday, Hillary Clinton delivered a commencement address to graduates of San Francisco’s exclusive Hamlin School. Media reports said Secret Service personnel whisked the former Democratic presidential nominee and U.S. secretary of state into the all-girls private school — where tuition is $34,500 per year. “Tuition includes lunch and snack,” the school’s website says. Once inside, Clinton spoke about her own experiences being bullied while growing up in suburban Chicago, as well as the...

Obama’s Presidential Library Is Going To Cost Taxpayers At Least $200 Million!

A report put out over the weekend claims that the presidential library of the usurper-in-chief, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, will cost the taxpayers of Illinois at least $200 million. The $200 million is not even the total cost of the library.  According to the Washington Examiner, the total will be $224 million. The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago’s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature’s budget on...

Adulterous, Anti-Trump FBI Referred to “President Hillary” During Election

Evan El-Amin / Shutterstock.com One of the most egregious lessons that we’ve learned from the arduous election of 2016 is, there is no way of telling just how deep into the D.C. swamp the corruption of Hillary Clinton runs. At this point, our guess is “all the way”. You see, the election of 2016 was supposed to be a coronation for Clinton, who many saw as a third term for President Obama…a man who purchased a home in the Washington D.C. suburbs for his post-presidential life, and even hired a team of about a dozen politicos to keep a...

Tim Allen’s sitcom son says there are more conservatives in Hollywood than you would expect … pendulum is swinging

A former Hollywood child star revealed that there are actually more conservatives in Tinseltown than expected but they keep a low profile. Zachery Ty Bryan admitted it’s been fun to watch as liberal Hollywood celebrities have had to cope with the election of President Trump, and not done it very well. The actor played the son of Tim “The Toolman” Taylor along side one of the most beloved Hollywood conservatives, Tim Allen, in the hit 1990s sitcom “Home Improvement.” Hollywood is in an “echo chamber” similar to the Washington establishment, Bryan, said Saturday on “Fox & Friends.” Trump caught Hollywood off guard,...

The Liberal Media’s Cult of Trump Derangement Syndrome

It would be hard to make this up. On two very different subjects, the liberal media has emerged from the last couple of weeks with not just egg on its face. In fact, it seems like they took an entire carton of Grade A Large and smashed them one by one over themselves. Can you say “cult”? Tellingly, there were two very different subjects involved in the media cult’s last few days: North Korea and prison reform. Let’s start with North Korea. Remember headlines like these: “Trump promises North Korea ‘fire and fury’ over nuke threat.”  This gem of...

Reporters Must Ask Clooney One Key Question About the SPLC

The Clooney’s gave $1 million to a group that is actively hostile to conservative organizations George Clooney makes some reporters swoon, and it has little to do with his handsome mug. The Oscar winner is one of the industry’s more thoughtful stars, sharing his progressive views in a way his peers can’t often match. He’s hobnobbed with President Barack Obama, testified before Congress and traveled the globe to research causes near and dear to his heart. Disagree with him all you want, but he’s not likely to curse out a sitting president at an awards gala. Nor do you have...

Does Trump have “dictator envy”?

Philip Rucker of the Washington Post claims that President Trump is “open[ly] embrac[ing] totalitarian leaders around the world.” Rucker also tries to persuade us that Trump’s “embrace” is rooted in a desire to be a dictator himself. Rucker is one of the most persistent and intellectually dishonest Trump-hater among the Post’s squadron of “resisters.” However, I don’t deny that Trump went overboard in praising the odious Kim Jong Un. Thus, we should consider Rucker’s assertions. In my view they are over-the-top. First, Trump isn’t embracing totalitarian rulers around the world. To the extent he’s praising such rulers, his praise is directed to rulers he’s seeking something from and who are in a position to inflict great harm on the U.S. All three of the leaders Rucker cites — Kim, Xi Jinping, and Vladimir Putin — fit this description. Second, Trump hasn’t “embraced” Xi or Putin. We’re moving into a trade war with China. And Trump has taken a series of hostile actions against Russia. Third, Rucker presents no persuasive evidence that Trump is praising Kim because he envies his dictatorial power. The best he can do is to collect quotations to this effect from folks who hate Trump. It’s possible that Trump is motivated by dictator envy, but the more plausible explanation for his praise is that he wants to induce Kim to denuclearize North Korea or, at a...

Hmmm… what if Canada wants nuclear weapons?

Did you happen to catch this tweet from the editors at the Ottawa Citizen, the largest daily newspaper in Ottawa, Canada? How quickly could Canada build an atomic bomb? https://t.co/Ms1qkqKGpr pic.twitter.com/TnL6UoG7J0 — Ottawa Citizen (@OttawaCitizen) June 15, 2018 That certainly caught the attention of a number of people. Was it satire? Some hint regarding a change in official Canadian policy toward nuclear arms? Reading the full editorial it sounds like neither, but they’re raising a provocative question. What if Canada, having become so distressed by the election of President Trump, fired up their own nuclear weapons program? They certainly...

FBI Texts Hold the Gold: Trump Voters Are “Uneducated, Lazy POS”

RUSH: As I’ve gone through the IG report, there are a couple noteworthy things. But you know what I really think, folks? I think that the text messages between Strzok and Lisa Page and now Agent 1 and Agent 5… If you really want to know what was going on, read those texts. They’re unfiltered. They’re unedited. They do not have attached explanations or analysis. They’re just raw, they’re just there, and they give the greatest indication of who these people were in the FBI and what they were doing. And one of them, ladies and gentlemen, that has...
