Insult directed against every generation since founding
ALAN KEYES — I can’t say that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tells the truth. But I will say that now and then “the truth will out,” even from someone whose factional blinders prevent them from applying the name of truth to anything that does not serve their ideological dictatorship…. (more)

NEWSMAX — The firing of FBI agent Peter Strzok earlier this month was long overdue, according to James Kallstrom, a former FBI assistant director who worked for the agency for 27 years. Speaking to John Catsimatidis on his “The Cats Roundtable” Sunday radio show on AM 970 in New York, Kallstrom said that Strzok’s “actions were just so outrageous. I think he has tremendous exposure criminally.”… (more)

Joseph Farah ID’s the 1 entity on earth that can battle internet monopolies
JOSEPH FARAH — As many of you know, I’ve been concerned about Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Amazon and Apple for a long time. I nicknamed them the “Internet Cartel” and the “Digital Cartel” because they all think alike, act alike, talk alike, walk alike and rake in billions a lot like monopolies – – which, let’s face it, they are….

‘The U.S. Constitution requires government to be neutral toward religion, not hostile’
WORLDNETDAILY — Officials in Washington state have set up a program that pays part of the wages of college students who work for various employers to advance their experience in the job world as they prepare to graduate. But the work-study program forbids “sectarian” organizations from participating. Those would be organizations like churches and Christian schools, and now a new lawsuit charges that that action is unacceptable bigotry on the part of the state…. (more)

Majority of Democrats now favor it as progressive leaders rise
GREG COROMBOS — A new Gallup poll shows a majority of Democrats are favorable towards socialism and their opinion of capitalism is quickly souring, a trend that one respected expert chalks up to the political rise of Sen.

POLITICO — In the fall of 1989, during the Cold War’s wan and washed-out final months, the Berlin Wall was crumbling – -and so was San Francisco. The powerful Loma Prieta earthquake, the most destructive to hit the region in more than 80 years, felled entire apartment buildings. Freeway overpasses shuddered and collapsed, swallowing cars like a sandpit. Sixty-three people were killed and thousands injured. And local Soviet spies, just like many other denizens of the Bay Area, applied for their share of the nearly $3.5 billion in relief funds allocated by President George H.W. Bush…. (more)

LOS ANGELES TIMES — Of all the places to discover a lost city, this pleasing little community seems an unlikely candidate. There are no vine-covered temples or impenetrable jungles here – – just an old-fashioned downtown, a drug store that serves up root beer floats and rambling houses along shady brick lanes. Yet there’s always been something – – something just below the surface. Locals have long scoured fields and river banks for arrowheads and bits of pottery, amassing huge collections. Then there were those murky tales of a sprawling city on the Great Plains and a chief who drank from a goblet of gold…. (more)

Vengeful, monopolistic technocracy is at war with President Trump and those who dare speak up for him
DOUG WEAD — Now that others are venturing timidly from their foxholes, I can take to print without becoming the sole target of a vengeful, monopolistic technocracy.

WASHINGTON TIMES — Sen. Richard Burr, who leads the Senate Selective Committee on Intelligence, issued a sharp rebuke of former CIA Director John Brennan, saying that if he has evidence of Russian collusion he should have presented it to his panel.

Brennan calls decision ‘dangerous’
POLITICO — President Donald Trump on Wednesday revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, who has become a harsh critic of the president, and appeared to be targeting others who have disagreed with the administration. “Mr. Brennan’s lying and recent conduct characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary is wholly inconsistent with access to the nation’s most closely held secrets and facilities, the very aim of our adversaries which is to sow division and chaos,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, reading a statement from Trump while briefing reporters on Wednesday….

Joseph Farah calls on Congress to hold Internet Cartel accountable
JOSEPH FARAH — Americans are just beginning to wake up to Google’s unlawful practice of applying its own political and religious biases to the most powerful search engine in the world. Everyone knows Google is an ultra-left tech giant that showers the Democratic Party in cash, promotes the fake-news anti-Trump hysterics of the alt-left Huffington Post and Daily Beast to the exclusion of real independent news and robs all of its “customers” of their privacy rights in ways that would make the National Security Agency blush….

WASHINGTON TIMES — One priest raped a girl who bore him a child. Another made his victim get an abortion in violation of church doctrine. And others preyed upon women and girls in their parishes for years with impunity.
