In defense of the New York Times’ new climate skeptic

Open borders means more gang violence

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been busy fulfilling his office's commitment to removing criminal aliens.

Report card on Trump’s first 100 days

It seems like decades since Barack Obama handed the keys to the country over to the House of Trump, but that was only at the end of January, barely 3 months ago.

United passenger wasn’t roughed up in vain

The saga of former United Airlines customer Dr. David Dao is getting more and more expensive for the airline. According to the Daily Mail, he didn't get home with all his teeth or his baggage. It seems that although United's O'Hare Airport staff had time to order Dao beaten, which caused the loss of two teeth, they didn't have time to take his luggage off the plane before it departed.
