YORK: As Trump's Lead Widens, Biden Prosecutors Take Self-Described 'Extraordinary' Measures

Two Things are True: One, former President Trump's polling – nationally, in key swing states, and in the first-voting state of Iowa– has never been better. And two, Jack Smith, the special counsel appointed by the Biden Justice Dept. to prosecute Trump, is taking self-described "extraordinary" measures to put Trump on trial before The Election. The two things are related – and nothing more effectively illustrates the contrast between Trump's rising political fortunes, and the Biden Admin's effort to imprison him before the election.

MOORE: Why Does Washington, D.C. Want to Destroy America's 'Magnificent Seven'?

Nothing exemplifies America's tech industry dominance in the global economy more than the meteoric rise of what's called the "Magnificent 7" – the stocks of Amazon, Apple, Google, Meta, Microsoft, Nvidia & Tesla. These companies single-handedly account for nearly all the gains in the stock market this year... which is to say, American shareholders who own them have a net worth of nearly $10 trillion. Apparently some in Congress would rather have us all buy our cellphones and search engines and robots from China or India.

SCHLICTER: Are Democrats Right to Be Scared of Trump’s 'Vengeance'?

I don’t understand why the supporters of the party of Hamas & Socialism are giving Donald Trump an in-kind campaign contribution in the form of their girlish, fussy cries of “He’s an authoritarian!” Democrats should be grateful if Trump wins the nomination and the election. Trump's an older guy who grew up in a different era, and still has that sliver of respect for our nation's institutions. But since when are we Americans against punishing wrongdoers? Trump may not be an angel, but he can still understand justice.

Are Rape & Sexual Assault Horrific? Where Have All the Feminists Gone in Israel vs. Hamas?

Israeli Survivors & 1st Responders described the horror of rape as a weapon of war: "He didn't pick up his pants. He shot her while inside her." Another Israeli Medic witnessed "a naked woman with a sharp object stuck in the intimate area of her body." A morgue worker said, "We saw women with bloody underwear, with broken legs & broken pelvises." So where is the outrage from NOW, the National Organization of Women, or from Emily's List, or even Planned Parenthood? Where is the March by America's Liberal Women's Movement?

Green Groups Are No Longer Promoting a Cleaner Environment

Green groups are supposed to be about keeping our rivers, lakes and streams clean. They are supposed to be about fighting litter and keeping toxic chemicals out of the air. Their job is to maintain the beauty of our national parks and save elephants and tigers. Not anymore. The New York Times recently reported in a disturbing headline: "Environmental Groups Cut Programs as Funding Shifts to Climate Change."

ARMSTRONG: Keep Prescription Drug Coverage Affordable, and Government Out of Health Care

Thankfully, many Texas employers offer Health Care Coverage options like discounted prescriptions at certain more-affordable pharmacies. Patients like having those choices: in fact, a recent poll shows that more than 70% of Texas voters would rather go to a specific pharmacy if it meant having access to more affordable prescription drugs. Meanwhile, big drug companies continue to raise prescription drug prices – without any accountability.

HANSON: October 7th Should Have Been an Open & Shut Case of Moral Condemnation Toward Hamas

The "rules of war" are violated by Hamas daily. International protocols require combatants to not to blend in with civilians, not to use them as shields, not to murder non-combatants, not to rape them, not to mutilate them, not to execute civilians without trial, and to wear uniforms. Why, then, would millions ally themselves with this odious reincarnation of the SS? Are they ignorant of the history of the Middle East? Are they arrogant – since few challenge their hate and threats?

McCAUGHEY: New York's Crisis Is a Lesson for Cities Everywhere

With New Yorkers complaining about Mayor Eric Adams's announced cuts to Police Protection and Sanitation, he's saying, "Don't yell at me – yell at D.C." He's trying to shift the blame to Joe Biden and the Democrats' open-borders policies. But don't fall for it. The surge of Illegal Immigrants inundating New York accounts for less than half (42%) of the city's looming fiscal crisis, and Adams is proposing to shrink New York City Police Force to its lowest level since the 1990s.

CONG. GONZALES: Recent COPS Grant 'Backs the Blue' in San Antonio

Congressional District 23, which I represent, spans more than 800 miles of the U.S.-Mexico Border – stretching from San Antonio to El Paso. Crime and violence are unfortunate common denominators that I hear about time and time again, and whether in urban areas, rural towns, or along the border, there's a sense that crime is on the rise and that Law Enforcement is stretched too thin. That's why I’ve been laser-focused on working with Local, State & Federal Officials to "Back the Blue" in San Antonio.

HUNTER: They’ve Failed thus Far, but Democrats Are Trying to Kill the American Dream

I’ll put this out there right off: the American Dream is not dead! What is dead, however, is most people’s idea of what that phrase means. The Wall Street Journals just wrote, “The American Dream — the proposition that anyone who works hard can get ahead regardless of their background — has slipped out of reach in the minds of many Americans.” So, we need an intervention... someone who embodies that dream to virtually smack us across the face with a dead fish to wake us up, because the Dream is not guaranteed.

CONG. EZELL: Here's How Biden's Border Crisis Affects Nation’s Law Enforcement – and 1st Responders

The Biden-Mayorkas strategy isn’t working. Customs & Border Protection continues to encounter alien criminals who've been previously convicted of crimes like sexual assault, theft, and murder. Just a few days ago Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens said his agents have been arresting an average of 47 aliens with “serious criminal histories” per day this year. Local Law Enforcement is seeing the same, too. And the costs of every one of these crimes and arrests, falls on taxpayers.

HANSON: When Has War Ever Been 'Proportional?'

Proportionality in war is a synonym for lethal stalemate – if not defeat. When two sides go at it with roughly equal forces, weapons, and strategies, the result is often a horrific deadlock – like the four years of toxic trench warfare on the Western Front of World War I that resulted in 12 million fatalities. The purpose of war is to defeat the enemy as quickly as possible – with the least number of causalities, thereby achieving political ends.

SLAGER: Biden, Democrats Face Hispanic Crisis as Univision Appears Primed to Support Trump

When the massive Univision Hispanic TV Network recently announced it would be doing an extensive interview with Donald Trump, the Biden Campaign moved to run political ads during the broadcast – but the network refused. One Democrat National Committee member revealed the palpable panic: “The new ownership is essentially co-opting and kidnapping the soul & mission of what Univision has been,” they said. That "Soul & Mission" was – apparently – full dedication to Democrats alone. The reality is shaking Democrats.

SHAPIRO: Barbarians Are Inside the Gates

This weekend marked Armistice Day in Great Britain and Veterans Day in the U.S. Both are somber days typically marked by honor and respect for symbols of the country – and the men and women who sacrificed so much for them. Yet in both London & New York City, terrorist supporters marched en masse proclaiming "their" sovereignty. One pro-Hamas flyer recently distributed at the University of Chicago even read, "Ending White Privilege Starts With Ending Jewish Privilege."

STOSSEL: Canceling Cancel Culture – 'One Squeaky Wheel Scares the Life Out of Everyone Else'

"I was not genuine in my own beliefs," says 23-year-old Rikki Schlott in my new video. "I self-censored. I was afraid to have Thomas Sowell & Jordan Peterson books on my bookshelf." If her classmates at NYU saw that, she says, she might have been "verbally attacked on social media, maligned as whatever 'ist' or 'ism' people might attack me with." So Schlott kept her mouth shut, eventually dropping out of NYU. ​​​​​​​"One squeaky wheel scares the life out of everyone else. Then we self-censor."

GOP Beware: The Third-Party Option Might Have Some Legs This Year

Bill Clinton was elected in 1992 because of Perot and Bush. Bush gave his word – “Read my lips, no new taxes” – then broke it unambiguously. The economy was also in rough shape. But in a normal two-party year, Bush likely would’ve been reelected because the public hadn’t really taken to Clinton (he was reelected with less than 50 percent of the vote in 1996, too).

HANSON: If We're Not Careful about Israel Today, What Supposedly Could Never Happen Again in the Future, Will

The founding idea of modern Israel was to offer a sanctuary for Jews in their biblical home in the Middle East in the aftermath of Nazi Germany's mass murder of 6 million Jews. Yet currently – 78 years after the Holocaust – anti-Israel protestors throughout the Middle East, the great cities of the Western world, and iconic American universities chant death threats and "Palestine will be free, from the river to the sea."

Democrats Hate Israel, Because Israel Loves America

There is no gray area here. President LOLEightyOneMillion can pretend to be a staunch ally of Israel all he wants, but the line between right and wrong was drawn by Hamas on Oct. 7th. Joe and the Democrats can to try to straddle the line, but if the United States of America is seen as wavering in support of its strongest ally – once the worst of humanity thinks it has carte blanche because America is weak – this planet is toast.

SCHLICTER: Think the GOP Has Problems – Meet The Democrats! ​​​​​​​Advantage, Republicans

Democrat Party "leader" Joe Biden has a couple problems. The 1st Problem is, he can barely walk across the sidewalk. The 2nd Problem is, he’s got to balance his Pala-simpian lover friends who've never met a terrorist they didn’t like or Jew they didn’t want murdered, and the rest of the Democrats who're pretty leftist themselves already. It’s very hard to have a "coalition" that includes factions that want to murder other factions of your party.

PARKER: Why the Left Hates Israel – and America

This week my organization, the Center for Urban Renewal & Education, held an event in Michigan's 12th Congressional District, the home of Rep. Rashida Tlaib. Forty pastors – white, Black, Hispanic – attended to speak out in support of Israel. We brought these Christian spokespersons into the backyard of one of the most aggressive voices in the U.S. Congress speaking out against Israel.
