“Hewitt: The Pivot to Racism Fools No One”


After the testimony of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller effectively imploded its key takeaway that there was no collusion between the president, his campaign or family and Russia during Russia’s 2016 attack on the election, then the mainstream media faced a quandary. What to do next?—to both vent Trump hatred and boost ratings.

In the aftermath of the terrible carnage in El Paso and Dayton, Democrats and their supporters in media hit on a solution: pivot from Trump and Russia and instead talk endlessly about Trump and racism.

Indeed, some of the kookier Democratic candidates for president took to calling the president a white supremacist.

This pivot fools no one and enrages many, for in fact it has the consequence of branding not just the president but all of his supporters as racists and white supremacists.

There’s not a hint of truth to that accusation. Playing the race card will be bad for ratings and there’s no doubt the effort from Democrats is bad for the nation.

Michael Medved: Inconvenient Truths on Tlaib’s Family and the Israeli “Occupation”

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib previously embarrassed herself by falsifying the history of the Middle East—suggesting Palestinians provided a “welcoming haven” for Jewish refugees during the Holocaust.

But every historian acknowledges that local Arab leaders responded to Jewish refugees with murderous attacks, ferocious hatred and unwavering opposition. Now, Tlaib is at it again—with distorted portrayals of her own family history as well the general history of her people.

Israel had nothing to do with her father and grandfather leaving the Middle East: her grandfather fled for Brazil in the 1930s, before Israel was even established. Her late father immigrated to Nicaragua in the early ’60s, when the West Bank and East Jerusalem were still ruled by Arab Jordan, not Israel.

While Tlaib emphasizes the suffering of her family under the so-called “occupation,” it’s worth noting that two generations had already found homes in America before that alleged occupation even began.

Jerry Bowyer: Getting Serious About the Economy

Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat candidate for president, recently warned that the U.S. economy might collapse in the near term.

I’ve recently completed extensive research identifying the conditions that tend to lead to financial collapses—what I call catastrophic losses. It turns out the kinds of environments which tend to lead to them are sudden shifts of policy in an anti-business direction and a weakening of property rights. Excessive taxation and excessive spending are also part of a toxic mix. In other words: Exactly the kind of hard-left turns which are associated with much of the Democratic field.

High taxes, big spending, expansion of government all severely raise the risk of collapse. The U.S. economy is resilient, but it’s not immune to collapse.

We should get serious about spending control and growth promotion because it can happen to us.
