New York Times’ Latest Exploit of Kavanaugh is Profoundly ”Yellow Journalism”

And we thought the smear campaign against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh was over. On Sunday, the New York Times had to walk back on some outrageous, malicious and downright false claims of sexual assault by Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his college days. The article by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, alleged there was corroboration of an incident in which Kavanaugh, as a college student at Yale, exposed himself to a female classmate at a party. Upon hearing about this, numerous 2020 Democratic candidates made calls to “impeach” ...

Leftist Gun Grabbers are Bullying Pro-Gun Politicians to Get What They Want

Leftist politicians are doing what they do best: bullying and threatening Republicans to give them what they want.

We Need Reform on CAFE Standards, Not Gun Control

Gun violence makes headlines and causes outrage. Gun violence is an issue; however, where’s the visible outrage over the unreasonably strict Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards that have been responsible for more deaths than gun violence? CAFE standards on automobiles began in 1975—after the 1973–74 Arab Oil Embargo—and were strengthened further by politicians like former President Barack Obama.

Red Flag Laws are a Direct Violation of Our American Rights

Members are back on the Hill and Democrats are taking advantage of the tragic shootings to draft and attempt to pass legislation that would erode the Second Amendment. One of those bills will call for federal red flag laws, which would allow the government to confiscate firearms from citizens who haven’t been charged with a felony or been involuntarily committed to a mental facility. Depending on the state, family members, teachers, co-workers and/or law enforcement can petition to the court that a gun owner is unfit to be a gun owner. As former Senator Jim DeMint puts ...
