Hong Kong is a Reminder of Why Our Own Rights Matter

The First Amendment and the Second Amendment: why do they matter so much? Sometimes, we take for granted the rights we grew up with; the rights that make America a haven for liberty. In Hong Kong, protesters are fighting for democratic reform and for complete separation from China, a nation that prides itself as an oppressive state. Thousands have been gathering in the streets of Hong Kong to protest, and the Chinese Army responds with a promotional video showing Hong Kong troops how to “de-escalate” protests, including depicted snipers aiming their rifles at protest...

Government Bureaucracy Financially Ruins Baltimore City

Abuse of power and government waste is no joke, especially when a failing city like Baltimore is claiming it’s a “fantastic” place.

Forbes reports: Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com investigated just how much taxpayer money flows into the Baltimore bureaucracy at every level: federal, state, and local. We found the city drowning in taxpayer dollars. Our audit shows that $1.1 billion in grants and direct payments ...

Bernie Sanders’ Criminal Justice Reform Plan is Just Socialism in Disguise

Bernie Sanders must have officially lost his mind. Sanders’ campaign released his Criminal Justice Reform plan, but the measures are just a delivery system for socialism. Packed neatly into the very end of the proposal on Sanders’ own website are several policy proposals that have nothing to do with crime and everything to do with increasing the size and scope of government. Our own Jenny Beth Martin already debunked some of the proposals, but let’s get into the others… From Bernie Sanders’ own website: As president, Bernie will: -Enact a federal ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: The Tea Party Isn’t Going Anywhere

Last month, Sen. Rand Paul declared on the Senate floor, “Today is the final nail in the coffin. The Tea Party is no more. … Adoption of this deal marks the death of the Tea Party movement in America.” In his defense, he was angry over the caucus’ cavalier approval of a massive two-year spending bill. Though angry at his caucus, he is horribly mistaken; the Tea Party is alive and well. It’s not going anywhere. The Daily Signal has Jenny Beth’s commentary: For 10 years now, Tea Party Patriots and its affiliated Super PAC and foundation have worked to ...

We Must Start Using the Biometric System at the Border

As demanded by 8 U.S. Code 1365b, a Biometric entry and exit data system must be implemented at our borders to easily track and coordinate immigrants wishing to enter the country. Such biometric tools would stop repeat offenders from entering the country before they make it in. It would also help identify kidnapped or trafficked children traveling with adults who are not with their parents. This system not only makes America safer, but it also makes immigrants safer. Nolan Rappaport has the story in The Hill: Biometrics are physical or behavioral characteristics of a ...

China is Responsible for America’s Opioid Crisis

Besides malicious currency manipulation and trade practices, China harms America in another way: drugs. Deadly opioids flood American streets and communities, causing the opioid epidemic we now find ourselves in. Fentanyl is the drug causing most of the overdoses in America, since the fatal limit of fentanyl is only 2 milligrams. China traffics this drug through our southern border, and other illicit shipping routes that lead directly into our mainland. The Heritage Foundation breaks it down: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has identified China as the primary ...
