There’s a reason everybody wants to come to America. You certainly know why, so there’s no need to go down the list. However, the next generation of leaders doesn’t understand why America is great. In fact, most of them in this clip below name another country as better than the U.S. It’s pretty sad. From The Blaze:

The majority of students conceded that Sweden, Norway, Canada, and Iceland were the best countries in the world.

Barack Obama’s legacy will continue to haunt the nation for a good while to come.

This will be the case until Obamacare is repealed and replaced, and until former Obama administration aides are no longer saying silly things in defense of quite arguably the worst president America has ever seen.

Check out how a former Obama admin appointee who became a college president feels about free speech on campus…

From The Blaze:

David R. Harris — president of Union College in New York and an appointee in the administration of former President Barack Obama — stated in an Inside Higher Ed essay last week, “I oppose free speech on college campuses.”

From the essay, Harris writes:

Free speech, in its purest form, is an exercise in what is achieved when a person yells a view and then leaves, after which someone with an opposing perspective does the same. The speakers do not grow as a result of the experience, and the audience has no opportunity to probe the opposing points of view. Such an exercise is guaranteed by the Constitution, and I wholeheartedly support the exercise of free speech in public spaces.

On campuses, however, we must strive for something more than free speech. Our mission requires that we seek what I refer to as constructive engagement. It is not enough for individuals to speak freely. We must also find myriad ways to put a range of views into conversation with one another. It is what we do in classrooms every day. It is what we do on debate teams. It is what happens across every campus, far more than critics appreciate. It is what happens in the lives of college students much more frequently than in the lives of most adults, in part because college campuses and social networks tend to be more diverse than “real world” neighborhoods and social clubs.

This sounds like exactly what someone from the Obama administration would say.

Dozens Of Cops Quit The Force As Seattle Council ‘Defunds Police’

Published

The Seattle City Council voted on Monday to cut the Seattle Police Department’s budget, as many cops leave the force as a result of all the hostilities pointed at them from local leadership. The city council held a vote to defund the police, which was passed 8-1. This measure will slash the budget by 18 percent. Granted, radical activists wanted to see the budget cut by 50 percent, but this is still a devastating number. via Daily Wire: Such a move will leave many vacant jobs on the force unfilled and require 911 dispatchers and parking enforcement to be moved outside of SPD jurisdiction. As of Oct. 31, 134 officers have left the force, according to the mayor’s office. In October alone, 23 have thrown in the towel. Democratic Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan expressed her support for the budget, saying in a statement, “I applaud the City Council for taking a more deliberate and measured approach to the 2021 Seattle Police Department budget than occurred this summer which led to the resignation of former SPD Chief Carmen Best.” Nikkita Oliver, a radical Black Lives Matter activist who played a leadership role in city’s short-lived Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (or CHAZ) last summer, said during a virtual meeting after the vote: These are all really exciting things that have been won after many, many years of mobilizing and partnering together. They’ve been won because of the uprising and defense of Black lives, and the many people who put their feet to the ground, who have made calls, sent emails, and organized their communities. The president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Mike Solan, wasn’t quite as excited about the vote, referring to the council as “naive” and warned that the response to calls coming in to 911 would take longer to…

New Poll Says Trump Will Retain Power Over Republican Party

Published

on

According to a brand new poll, President Donald Trump is going to keep a lot of power and influence over the Republican Party and, should he not get a second term, will be the heavy favorite to become the 2024 GOP nominee. The poll was conducted by Morning Consult/Politico, and says Trump is already at the top of a list of 14 potential presidential candidates, with 68 percent of GOP voters saying they consider Trump to be the most in touch with the party’s rank and file members. via Newsmax: The poll, conducted from Nov. 21-23 among 669 Republicans and 1,990 voters overall, comes as Trump and many in the party are challenging the election. Newsmax has not called the election. The poll also showed: 71% of Republican voters say Trump is effective and committed to the country’s best interests, but just 17% say the same of congressional Republicans. 56% say Trump is predominantly looking out for the party’s best interests. 54% said they’d back Trump in a primary contest. 12% said they’d back Vice President Mike Pence. 8% would back Donald Trump Jr. against his father. 4% of Republicans each said they would support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Other members of the GOP, such as Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Rick Scott of Florida, and Josh Hawley of Missouri, got even less support for a potential 2024 presidential bid. President Trump has made it clear already that he wants to continue being influential in the Republican Party. He’s kept Ronna McDaniel as the chair to the Republican National Committee and has already built a political action committee. What this means is that if the left succeeds in stealing this election, they might be ousting Trump from the White House, but they are…
