Defining the Principles of Conservatism in 1019. Defining the Principles of Conservatism in 1019.

(Akiit.com) At The Heritage Foundation, we’re always thinking about ways to talk to new and non-traditional audiences about how conservative principles can create the greatest freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society for the American people.

Will 2020 be a Repeat of 2004 for thy Democrats? Will 2020 be a Repeat of 2004 for thy Democrats?

(Akiit.com) Democrats by 2004 had become obsessed with defeating incumbent President George W. Bush. Four years earlier, in the 2000 election, Bush had won the Electoral College but lost the popular vote. Democrats were still furious that Bush supposedly had been “selected” by the Supreme Court over the contested vote tally in Florida rather than “elected” by the majority of... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump Threatens Anti-fascists With Being Classified As “Terrorists”? Donald Trump Threatens Anti-fascists With Being Classified As “Terrorists”?

(Akiit.com) It should not surprise us that a person who would claim that there were “good people” among the fascist demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia would now move to classify an anti-fascist network as alleged “terrorists.” But that is precisely what “Agent Orange,” i.e., Donald Trump, has been intimating. Unfortunately, this is not comedic; it is deadly serious. The network... [Read more of this review]


Film Review; Brian Banks. Film Review; Brian Banks.

(Akiit.com) In this MeToo age, a biofilm about a wrongfully convicted high school football player, who was accused, tried and imprisoned for rape, is timely. The real Brian Banks, the subject of this movie, lived through an ordeal that was tragic, inspiring and often profound. However, something is lost in this one-dimensional retelling of his life experiences. Something turns his extraordinary... [Read more of this review]


The Democrats Offer Salvation…With Strings Attached. The Democrats Offer Salvation…With Strings Attached.

(Akiit.com) Democrats are running an interesting campaign so far. They’re promising “freebies” to everyone, which is normal for leftists, but they’re also offering salvation. “Vote against Trump’s racism or you’re a racist,” they say. When it comes to what that racism is exactly, they’re less clear. But these self-appointed Popes of politics stand ready to forgive your past sin of... [Read more of this review]


The Democrats, in Showing Their Extremism, Do Nation a Favor. The Democrats, in Showing Their Extremism, Do Nation a Favor.

(Akiit.com) In Wednesday evening’s Democratic presidential debate circus, the left’s favorite darlings turned on one another with a selfish vengeance, which was a positive development for the country and mildly entertaining. The glorious infighting continued among progressive commentators. This acrimony, coupled with the public exposure of the left’s crazy ideas, surely diminished... [Read more of this review]


Uncle Joe Biden Steps Up Gun Targeting Ahead of Debate. Uncle Joe Biden Steps Up Gun Targeting Ahead of Debate.

(Akiit.com) Joe Biden’s been in Washington D.C. for nearly 50 years and he’s finally got a plan. Too bad, it’s not much of one. Former Vice President Joe Biden released his Criminal Justice campaign platform just in time for the second Democratic presidential candidate debate to be held in Detroit. He’s up to his old tricks. Denunciate. Conflate. Obfuscate. Biden’s plan to fight crime squarely... [Read more of this review]


Unintended Consequences of Donald Trump’s Trade Wars. Unintended Consequences of Donald Trump’s Trade Wars.

(Akiit.com) “Vietnam has benefited from a surge in exports and foreign investment as businesses look to scale back their China operations or relocate to avoid higher U.S. tariffs. But it’s also fighting claims that Chinese exporters are routing their goods via Vietnam and slapping fake labels on their products to bypass the tariffs.” President Trump’s ongoing trade wars are resulting in numerous... [Read more of this review]


Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Turns Its Back On Fair Lending Enforcement And Reporting. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Turns Its Back On Fair Lending Enforcement And Reporting.

(Akiit.com) More than 50 years ago, this nation enacted legal guarantees that fair housing would be available to all Americans. Despite this federal assurance, however, a disturbing and ongoing stream of reports and lawsuits remind us that we are still on an aspirational journey.  Aggressive enforcement of fair housing and other anti-discriminatory laws are supposed to bring punishments for violators,... [Read more of this review]


Donald Trump Chooses Air Force Over Liberal Cronyism. Donald Trump Chooses Air Force Over Liberal Cronyism.

(Akiit.com) Once again, the House Democrats are at odds with the solid recommendations of our top military leaders. After prodding from House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith (D-WA), the House passed the National Defense Authority Act (NDAA) 220-197 on July 12. The legislation passed without the support of any Republican members and with eight Democratic members voting against the bill. It was a... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) “And I think that if Donald Trump is re-elected, and in the second term, maybe a reporter ends up in jail, maybe one of those investigators being investigated for the third time now ends up in jail,” said Nicolle Wallace, who plays a journalist on MSNBC. The beauty of reporting for a network like MSNBC – or just about every other network for that matter – is that you address an... [Read more of this review]


Robert Mueller Hearing Is a Disaster For the Ages. Robert Mueller Hearing Is a Disaster For the Ages.

(Akiit.com) Here’s the investigation we need now: a blue-ribbon panel revealing who in the world thought Robert Mueller’s testimony would be a good idea. Was it Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff, the chairs of the two committees that dragged this poor man through this needless hell? Was it Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a last-ditch effort to gin up a narrative for impeachment? It surely was championed by... [Read more of this review]


The Liberals Campaigning Hard To Re-Elect President Trump. The Liberals Campaigning Hard To Re-Elect President Trump.

(Akiit.com) The 2020 election is already in full spin as Donald Trump’s leftist enemies are working hard to see that he wins another four years of glory and success in the White House. Much of what they say and do should be designated as in-kind contributions to his campaign, and we should cheer them on. The 2020 election will be a choice between them or Trump, so the stupider and crazier they are,... [Read more of this review]


No, Kamala Harris, Your Gun Policies Wouldn’t Have Stopped Aurora. No, Kamala Harris, Your Gun Policies Wouldn’t Have Stopped Aurora.

(Akiit.com) Another day, another push for more gun control. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-Ca) used the seventh anniversary of “the mass shooting at the Aurora movie theater in Colorado” to lament that “Congress hasn’t done enough” on gun control. Harris is right, but not for the reasons that she thinks. Neither Congress nor Colorado is passing any bills... [Read more of this review]


Attacks on Conservative Speech Take Many Forms Now. Attacks on Conservative Speech Take Many Forms Now.

(Akiit.com) Looking over the frenzied political landscape in America today, one marred by constant clashes between right and left, a single issue rises above the rest. In many areas of public life, conservatives – their words, their views and values – are under assault. Conservative speech is under direct attack by ultra-left, radical activists who are methodically expunging conservative speech... [Read more of this review]
