“This view that there is no truth, but only power has emanated through and infected...our whole cultural and institutional life,” says Dr. Stephen Blackwood, President of Ralston College. “We are facing civic alienation, inner-city violence, the devastation of our inherited intellectual and spiritual culture” are evidence of the sickness ailing Wes…

“We can't just keep funding people who are playing in make-believe-land, cranking out information to inform public policy that's completely divorced from reality.

During recent high-level talks in Alaska, China’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi spotlighted “deep-seated” human rights issues in the U.S., propped up “Chinese-style democracy” and criticized the U.S. for “interference in China’s internal affairs.” It’s a carefully laid trap, says Miles Yu, a senior China policy advisor to former Secretary of State Mike …
 
“Our sovereignty, our solvency, our national security are all on the line,” says. Rep.

"People to them are a commodity.” Tonight, Jones breaks down the…
