America Has Built

Civilization in the World

I was talking to two friends in their twenties recently, about our travel experiences in foreign parts, and we circled around like an airplane looking for a landing place before we all agreed that foreign parts are all very well, but they’re not… comfortable. Now, sometimes it’s worth it to endure some discomfort in the name of travel — of seeing new places and broadening your horizons. I put up with an awful lot of it when I was a kid, traveling by train across Europe. It was worth it because I had stuff to see and places to go. But… In

First lady Melania Trump gave a shout-out to her new hometown Friday, as she participated in a 100-year-old tradition by donating a gown to the Smithsonian. ´The president, Barron and I love living here and we are so honored to represent this country,´ the first lady told a crowd gathered in Flag Hall at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, the museum where her inaugural ball gown will now live. In her speech, which lasted under four minutes, the first lady admitted procuring a ball gown had slipped her mind, so she made ´poor Hervé,´ designer Hervé Pierre, work

An appeals court has blocked a teenage illegal immigrant from demanding abortion services from the federal government while being held in custody. The Friday ruling does allow the girl, a 17-year-old being held in Texas, to seek a private sponsor who could help her obtain the procedure without the government´s assistance. The government has until October 31 to approve such a sponsor, the 2-1 ruling from the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The teen, who is from Central America and is 15 weeks pregnant, entered the country unaccompanied in September and was immediately detained by

Natasha De Alencar was sitting at home after a trip to Walmart in April when a phone rang. It was President Donald Trump, and he wanted to talk about her husband. Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar had just been brought back to the U.S. in a flag-draped casket from Afghanistan days earlier. The member of the 7th Special Forces group was killed on April 8 — the first American killed in combat in Afghanistan this year, according to a tally kept by iCasualties.

Afghan troops go AWOL in
U.S.; IG says wastes taxpayer

More than 150 Afghan troops brought to the U.S. for military training have gone AWOL since 2005, with 13 of them still unaccounted for and perhaps living as here illegal immigrants now, an inspector general said in a new report Friday. Part of the problem is that the U.S. never puts the trainees through an in-person interview and exempts them from registering as aliens when they arrive — both steps that other visitors would normally have to go through. In-person interviews and requiring the troops to register beforehand would help the government gauge whether someone is likely to go absent without leave,

The Left has gun-toting militias of its own,
Charlottesville lawsuit reveals

With a name like Redneck Revolt, one “paramilitary” group named in a lawsuit filed in the wake of the deadly Charlottesville protests sounds like the classic alt-right, gun-toting militia many blame for the August incident that sparked a national debate on race and guns. But Redneck Revolt is a sometimes-armed militia that left-wing protesters have apparently started calling on for security, and critics say it represents a growing group of heat-packing, far-left social justice warriors who are “willing to take on personal risk to defend those in our community,” according to the group’s website. The lawsuit, brought by The Georgetown Law Institute

The Nets invited a Brooklyn native to sing the national anthem at their home opener and she took the opportunity to make a statement. Justin Skye, from Fort Greene, took a knee at the end of the anthem at the Barclays Center on Friday night before the Nets and Magic took the court. The crowd reacted to her actions with mostly boos, according to the Associated Press. Specifically, Skye got down on one knee while singing the final line “and the home of the brave,” according to Metro News. Nets players locked arms while she sang. Skye is a recording

Benjamin Wittes, a friend of former FBI Director James Comey, said that he´s unable to say how far President Trump is willing to push the legal bounds of the presidency because it would involve "looking into his soul" — and he´s not quite sure Trump has one. Asked by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on his podcast "Stay Tuned with Preet" how far he thinks Trump is willing to stretch the constitutional constraints of his office, Wittes said he would need to look into Trump´s soul to answer that question. "I´m hesitant to answer that question because it involves looking into his

There’s something unfortunately familiar in the pattern of explosive controversies and headlines-that-go-nowhere… The DC UniParty always defends itself. The latest scandal du jour seems to surround the criminal enterprise known as “Uranium One”. There is indeed a scandal within the entire construct of a payoff to the Clinton’s via a corporation connected to Russians and bribes, kick-backs, and ultimately a payoff; and there are some newly outlined details from within the FBI investigating the companies and entities associated with the deal. However, all of these “BOOM” headlines are not new. (Snip)Now consider this from The Daily Caller (April 2015 –

Hillary Clinton admits she “really tried to get out of going” to President Trump’s inauguration. The former first lady and failed Democratic presidential nominee said on BBC One’s “The Graham Norton Show” that she asked the remaining former presidents if they were going to the Jan. 20 inauguration in an effort to justify not showing up herself. “I really tried to get out of going,” Mrs. Clinton said. “We thought ‘OK, maybe others aren’t going.’” She explained that it’s tradition for former presidents and first ladies to attend a presidential inauguration, regardless of party, to show “support” and “continuity of

Melania Trump is embracing a more active and public schedule as first lady – but she still runs one of the leanest East Wing operations in recent history. According to a Fox News analysis of White House personnel reports, Melania Trump has significantly reduced the number of aides on the first lady´s office payroll in comparison to her predecessor, Michelle Obama. During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year. This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries totaled $486,700.

Amid controversy surrounding NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, President Donald Trump launched a petition which provides supporters the opportunity to declare they stand for the national anthem. “The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem,” the petition reads on the president´s website. “Add your name below to show your patriotism and support.” The president´s petition came just days after statements from the NFL, which never indicated it told its players to stand during the national anthem at games. In a statement on Wednesday, the NFL and NFL Players Association claimed that

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday stood by chief of staff John Kelly calling Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson (Fla.) an "empty barrel," adding her own description for the congresswoman. Kelly castigated Wilson during Thursday´s White House press briefing for revealing details of a phone conversation that President Donald Trump had with the widow of a soldier this week. (Snip)"As General Kelly pointed out, if you´re able to make a sacred act like honoring American heroes all about yourself, you´re an empty barrel," Sanders added.

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., again raised the issue of race as she slammed the White House en masse, after a video was released that confirmed White House chief of staff John Kelly had inaccurately portrayed her remarks at a dedication of an FBI building. "The White House itself is full of white supremacists," she told the New York Times on Friday. Video footage of the event, published by the Sun Sentinel on Friday, shows Wilson discussing her role sponsoring legislation to name the building after fallen FBI agents who were killed in a shootout with bank robbers in 1986.

When it comes to jobs growth, legal protections for organized labor may be something of a curse particularly when there is a union election. That’s bad news for any company with a union that also wants an influx of cash to help grow. Here’s how it plays out. “We find that union election victories are associated with increased bankruptcy costs, which lead to declines in bond values,” according to a research report published earlier this month by the National Bureau of Economic Research. “Unions further depress bondholders´ recovery values as they are assigned seats on unsecured creditors´ committees,” the paper continues. In other words, the

New York — An upcoming memoir from Sen. John McCain has taken on new meaning since he first decided to write it. “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations” is scheduled to come out in April, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Friday. The publisher quietly signed up the book in February, without any formal announcement. In July, McCain disclosed he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and last month he said the prognosis was “very poor.” McCain, 81, was re-elected to a sixth term in the Senate in 2016. “This memoir will be about what matters most to him,

President Donald Trump called three Republican senators this week and expressed support for their 2018 re-election bids, aligning with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the senator´s intra-party feud with Steve Bannon. Trump dialed GOP Sens. John Barrasso of Wyoming, Deb Fischer of Nebraska and Roger Wicker of Mississippi, according to five people familiar with the calls. He promised to help the three senators against any insurgent challengers, one of these people said, and said he hoped they would be reelected. The calls are expected to eventually be followed by formal endorsements, GOP senators said. Wicker, Barrasso and Fischer declined

While visiting Hillsdale College this week, I was unexpectedly bequeathed a gift. When I arrived at the house where I am staying I discovered on the buffet table in the kitchen a small collection of books on military history, grand strategy, and World War II. Among them was the bound galley of Victor Davis Hanson´s The Second World Wars, published Tuesday by Basic Books. Having heard advance praise for the book, I picked up the hefty galley. I have not put it down since. Most surveys of the global conflagration between September 1939 and September 1945 are chronological. They begin

Virtually every chance House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has had to dispel her reputation as a delusional, establishment hack completely out-of-touch with reality, she always finds some way to reveal that she really is a delusional, establishment hack completely out-of-touch with reality. Her latest guffaw occurred during her appearance on Friday´s The View where she denied America is in a culture war and that Democrats have division in their ranks. First topic of conversation was the despicable non-controversy cooked up by Congresswoman Frederica Wilson alleging that Trump treated a Gold Star widow disrespectfully over the phone; Pelosi called Wilson a

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team running the Russia collusion probe are being accused by fellow attorneys of employing aggressive and questionable tactics in past cases, potentially putting a dent in his straight-shooter image. As the investigation heats up and key players like former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and press secretary Sean Spicer are interviewed by investigators, several attorneys with experience in federal cases spoke out with their concerns this week. Harvey Silverglate, a criminal defense attorney in Massachusetts, wrote an opinion piece accusing Mueller of once trying to entrap him when Mueller was acting U.S.

On the same day, October 4, that the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed three employees of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS to testify in the Trump dossier investigation, the committee also subpoenaed TD Bank for Fusion´s bank records. Now, according to a source familiar with the situation, Fusion has asked a U.S. District Court in Washington DC judge to prevent the bank from complying with the subpoena. The move comes just days after two of those three Fusion employees asserted their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination rather than answer questions about the dossier.
