Why We Should Celebrate Washington’s Birthday, Not Presidents Day.

Key Takeaways What we today call “Presidents Day” is in fact Washington’s birthday.

In the movie, The Post, Meryl Streep’s character shares a sobering thought, “Newspapers are the first draft of history.” Their mission is critical to our republic; newspapers are to serve the public, not those who govern.

Here’s How Much The US Would Save If Trump Cut Aid To Every Country That Voted ‘Nay’ On Jerusalem Move.

There was global outcry after President Trump announced his intention to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, but that might actually turn out to be a good thing for America’s economy if the White House makes good on the threat made to the countries opposing the move.

Time to Defund the United Nations.

There Is No ‘United Nations.’ So Let’s Stop Paying For It.

U.S. Will Direct Humanitarian Programs in the Middle East; No More U.N. Funding

Funding that vile international body (driven largely by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation) is as good as funding jihad, Jew-hatred, creed apartheid, gender apartheid and sharia worldwide. The OIC is made up of 56 Muslim countries and the terrorist Palestinian Authority. The OIC, Bat Ye’or explains, is nothing less than a “would-be, universal caliphate.” It […]

[…]

The Blindness of the United Nations.

British Queen Elizabeth I had a motto, semper eaden (always the same). Four centuries later, the United Nations and its various bodies are funny that way in repeating the obvious, and need someone to watch over them. They might be reminded that their main mission is to discuss ways to maintain international peace and security. […]

The List of Countries on the UN’s 2017 Human Rights Council Is Unreal

Death sentences for apostasy, arbitrary detentions, extrajudicial killings, and systematic suppression of free speech are just some of the qualifications the countries elected by the United Nations to serve on its 2017 Human Rights Council have. The Human Rights Council, mind you, is supposed to “uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of […]

Trump’s Take On The UN Is Hilariously Correct

President Donald Trump, no stranger to partying himself, know a good party when he sees one, and also knows when partying isn’t the order of the day.

The 7 Worst Things The UN Has Ever Done
