Families will argue this Thanksgiving.Such arguments have a long tradition.The Pilgrims had clashing ideas about how to organize their settlement in the New World. The resolution of that debate made the first Thanksgiving possible.The Pilgrims were religious, united by faith and a powerful desire to start anew, away from religious persecution in the Old World. Each member of the community professed a desire to labor together, on behalf of the whole settlement.In other words: socialism.But when they tried that, the Pilgrims almost starved.

This story needs to be told often, the schools won't do it. It is human nature for some folks to shirk work and live off of others hard labor because the world owes them a living.

The late Paul Harvey told this surprising story during one of his pre Thanksgiving Rest of the Story segments. They did indeed almost starve simply because there were freeloaders and deadbeats even back then. So after a year of communal pooling all the goodies, they went back to the way God intended, everybody works for themselves, and they could share or sell whatever they wished to. But the freeloader crowd had to provide for themselves. No more free ride.

A record-breaking veteran climber fell 600-feet to his death off a steep Mexico mountain after failing to tie a knot in his rappel rope.

Gobright and Jacobson met each other for the first time on the day of the climb. The night before, the veteran climber had posted to Instagram asking whether anyone wanted to join him.

Carter Page accused the Justice Department of "Orwellian overreach" in his lawsuit related to the forthcoming release of a watchdog report on alleged government surveillance abuses.

In a court filing on Friday, Page argued in favor of rejecting the Justice Department's motion for a time extension to respond,

President Trump slammed Newsweek over its story on his Thanksgiving plans, which it said included “tweeting, golfing and more,” though he ended up making a surprise visit to US troops in Afghanistan. “I thought Newsweek was out of business?” the president wrote along with a retweet of his son Donald Trump Jr.’s photo of the commander-in-chief serving Thanksgiving dinner to the service members. Attached to the image was a screenshot of Newsweek’s story, with the headline: “How is Trump spending Thanksgiving? Tweeting, golfing and more.” The writer began the story by writing, “As with any other day of the year,

Fox News host Tucker Carlson acknowledged several lies told by President Donald Trump over the years, but he contended that what the left truly hates is when the president tells key truths that threaten their power. Calling the president a “salesman, a talker, a boaster, a compulsive self-promoter,” and even a “full blown BS artist at times” during the Wednesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment, Carlson referred to the Washington Post’s count of over 13,000 alleged Trumpian tall tales before honing in on the president’s “untrue” claim about his inauguration crowd size. “If Trump hadn’t gotten rich in real estate, he could have made a fortune selling cars,”

It’s been three years since I and many other Christians voted for Donald Trump, and I for one am done defending that decision. At long last, I’m finished explaining my values to people who are hell-bent on misconstruing them.Among those people are the left’s media foot-soldiers, who insist Trump-voting Christians have a “branding problem.” They conclude that because we could elect a man like Trump and because the number of Christians in America is shrinking, the two must be inextricable, and the culture wars we now fight are decidedly “post-Christian.”Ezra Klein says as much in his latest column at Vox, “The post-Christian culture wars.”

Although it's far from a lead-pipe cinch, a plausible case is to be made that the former first lady Michelle Obama may enter the Democratic primary race. There are three reasons for believing this. First and most obvious is the current field of contenders for the Democrat nomination. As has often been said, they resemble occupants in a clown car that tumble out together for their periodic debates. The emotion that they instill in the general public is not one of enthusiasm but fear. The most seemingly stable among the Democrat field is former Vice President Joe Biden. But Slow Joe is

There is no evidence that the Federal Bureau of Investigation tried to plant a spy inside President Trump’s campaign in the run-up to the 2016 election, an upcoming Department of Justice report will claim. The conclusion was reached by DOJ’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, who is leading an internal review of the origins of the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, according to The New York Times. The Times quoted a source who has seen a draft copy of Horowitz’s report, which is scheduled to be released on December 9.

A friend informs me of a young lady from his hometown and home church. Valedictorian of her classical Christian high school, she was a solid evangelical raised in an evangelical home, an evangelical church, and by evangelical parents. “Guess what she did for break?,” my friend asks me. “She headed to Iowa to volunteer for Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign.” Why anyone would think that Pete Buttigieg is qualified to be president is a mystery. An even greater mystery would be why a conservative evangelical girl would spend her college break knocking on doors for a cultural radical to be president of the United States. Actually, it’s no mystery.

After all, there have been many times when Bloomberg proved himself to be an extremely arrogant member of the Know-It-All elite. Case in point? Just watch this video in which Bloomberg basically explains that it's a great idea to tax the poor because higher taxes mean they have less money to hurt themselves. Or something. "[Some] say, well, 'taxes are regressive.' But in this case, yes they are, that's the good thing about them," Bloomberg said
