Positive Populism: Revolutionary Ideas to Rebuild Economic Security, Family, and Community in America (Amazon)

The elites still can’t believe Donald Trump won or that Britain voted for Brexit. But what’s next for the populist revolution and for the people who believe in it?

Fox News host and former government insider Steve Hilton shows how populism can be a positive force for improving lives, with revolutionary ideas to restore the economic security that working Americans once took for granted, and rebuild the ties of family, community and nation that have been ripped apart by decades of policies that favored big government, big business, and the powerful.

As D.C.-area schools grapple with overcrowding, parents wonder why enrollment projections are so off (The Washington Post) 

In Montgomery County, a Washington suburb with sought-after public schools, Bethesda Elementary School opened an eight-classroom expansion three years ago to relieve pressure on the overcrowded campus.

A year later, the school spilled over again into a portable classroom. When this school year started Tuesday , it had four portables… [Read More]

Serena Williams Got What She Deserved (The Weekly Standard)

While Serena Williams was melting down during the U.S. Open women’s final against Naomi Osaka on Saturday night, I was at a minor league baseball playoff game. The home team was losing, 4-3. It was late in the game, but they had rallied. The bases were loaded and then the visiting pitcher balked. It was a pretty obvious balk, the kind that even casual fans notice. But the umpire didn’t call it.

The home team dugout went crazy. The players started shouting, the pitching coach screamed at the ump. And to all of this, the umpire responded by yelling across the field, “I’m not going to walk in a run for that.” [Read More]

Trump to put International Criminal Court on notice over war crimes probe (Washington Examiner)

The Trump administration is expected to announce Monday that it opposes the International Criminal Court’s planned investigation into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

President Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton will announce the administration’s opposition to the investigation during remarks to the Federalist Society on Monday afternoon, according to Reuters. Bolton will reportedly label the ICC an “illegitimate court” and threaten sanctions against the entity if it proceeds with the probe.

“We will not cooperate with the ICC. For all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us,” the former George W. Bush administration official will say, according to prepared remarks. [Read More]

Michael Moore Swipes Microphone From David Hogg After He Asks Canadians To Vote In U.S. Elections (RCP)

Gun control activist David Hogg joined activist Michael Moore in Canada for the premiere of his anti-Trump film “Fahrenheit 11/9.”
“I have a question for you guys: Who’s ready to save America? Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper and make it the actual country that it wants to be?,” Hogg asked the Canadian crowd. “I think the most important thing to realize, however, is the problems we face as a country, whether it be water in Flint, Michigan or the amount of mass incarceration of people of color that can’t vote.”
“In Florida, the number of African-Americans who can’t vote because of a previous conviction is 21%. In Kentucky, it is 26%. In Alabama, it is 15-16%. These are people of color who have been historically discriminated against and still are to this day.” [Read More]

Mr. Rosenstein, What Is the Crime? (National Review)

For precisely what federal crimes is the president of the United States under investigation by a special counsel appointed by the Justice Department?

It is intolerable that, after more than two years of digging — the 16-month Mueller probe having been preceded by the blatantly suspect labors of the Obama Justice Department and FBI — we still do not have an answer to that simple question.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein owes us an answer. [Read More]

Woke Miss America Delivers All-Time Ratings Low (Breitbart)

ABC’s broadcast of Sunday night’s Miss America pageant capped a ceremony rife with politicization, leading to an all-time low in TV ratings.

The Wrap reports that Sunday night’s Miss America pageant was “down 36 percent in the key demo and off 19 percent among overall audience members” compared to last year.

The abysmal broadcast ratings come as Sunday night’s competition featured no swimsuit competition as it did for decades. However, the competition did feature several political messages. [Read More]
