    Tuesday was the night North Carolina’s ninth congressional district would finally decide who would represent them in the House. A consultant for the 2018 GOP candidate marked incomplete absentee ballots for his candidate, causing the results to be thrown out. Despite a new GOPer running, the CBS Evening News took that bad actor and used him to smear all Republicans and suggested the true question the election would answer was whether the GOP could win without cheating. After failing news anchor Norah O’Donnell pitched the race as a “possible preview for 2020,” correspondent Dean Reynolds began the report by declaring:...

    Many years ago, the then chief of a very major US business shared his thoughts with me in respect of the British Establishment. He said that a major problem with the UK is that it is still controlled by holders of assets, in particular land, at inflated prices and that the economy was run accordingly. As a consequence, the incentives to be enterprising and to work hard were diminished. He was particularly struck by how successful the British Establishment had been at keeping a grip on their privilege. A week after I resigned as head of the British Chambers of...

Closed permanently on September 11, 2001 It seems impossible but it has been 18 years since 9/11. The children who were in school that day are now all young adults. You would think that the cataclysmic events that unfolded during and after the worst terrorist attack on American soil would have been the formative experience that shaped the worldview of this cohort. But that is not the case. While many children...

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) will step down as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus on Oct. 1 and will be replaced by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), who was officially elected as the new chairman on Tuesday. Meadows, one of President Trump's close allies, was a heavy influence on House legislation as leader of the conservative group during Trump's first term, and he is expected to remain on its board moving forward... Meadows, one of the founding members of the caucus, was previously elected to serve a second term in January.
  • Young Americans Prefer Socialism Because They Are Ignorant of the Past: Camille Paglia

    (snip) As the firebrand cultural critic Camille Paglia puts it in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal's Tunku Varadarajan, Americans take our unprecedented freedom of choice and wealth of consumer goods for granted. They are desperately in need of a richer, deeper context for the very era they are denouncing. "Everything is so easy now," Ms. Paglia continues. "The stores are so plentifully supplied. You just go in and buy fruits and vegetables from all over the world." Undergrads, who've studied neither economics nor history, "have a sense that this is the way life has always been. Because...

    Hunting wild boar has a proud tradition in Europe, but in the U.S., where they’ve been introduced or escaped from farms, Sus scrofa is non grata due to damage they cause. Here’s how to pursue them. Hunting the wild hog is a tradition as old as man himself. In Europe the wild boar was considered a worthy opponent for heroic warriors who faced him with sword and spear. Throughout the centuries, many men were killed, as the European wild boar is a brave and savage animal that can fight unflinchingly to the death. Often he will disdain to squeal or...

    A Senate subcommittee on Tuesday easily advanced the $694.9 billion defense spending bill for fiscal 2020 despite Democratic concerns that it does not constrain the administration’s ability to dip into Pentagon coffers to build a border wall. The top Democrat on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.), predicted more pushback when the full committee takes up the bill later this week, however... House Democrats in their version of the defense spending bill would limit how much money the Pentagon would be allowed to move between accounts...

    In a short video clip promoting their new book, “The Book of Gusty Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience,” Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Rodham Clinton explained what they believed defined a “gusty” woman. While the tweet was liked more than 33,000 times, there are a number of comments criticizing their message, including one from Juanita Broaddrick. “Give me a damn break, Hilly,” she tweeted in response. “You wouldn’t know gutsy if it kicked you in the A$$. You’ve been shielded and protected all your life. Be assured, I will never give up telling the world about you and your...

The reason this story will now be downplayed and quickly dropped, of course, is that Republicans won both by comfortable margins. That was expected to be the case in congressional district 3, which is a very safe GOP district and where the Republican candidate...
  • Should Rahm Emanuel run for president and save Democrats from Joe Biden and his bloody eye?

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 9/11/2019 | John Kass
    Should former Democratic Chicago mayor turned TV talking head Rahm Emanuel just drop the punditry nonsense and get into the presidential race himself? It’s worth a thought. Emanuel is a multimillionaire — there are obvious benefits to public service — though he’s not as rich as enviro-billionaire Tom Steyer, who has qualified for the Democratic presidential candidate debate in October. But Rahm knows politics, and he displays his knowledge of these dark arts weekly on that ABC Sunday morning talk show, the one I don’t watch that is hosted by Clinton Donor Zero. If he were a presidential candidate, Rahm...

    Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. told Hill.TV on Tuesday that he has begun sharing information with the FBI in what he alleged was a criminal conspiracy against him by former board members at the school. Falwell said in an exclusive interview that in the coming days the FBI will review university documents at the Lynchburg, Va., campus. He accused former colleagues of stealing school property in the form of emails and then sharing them with reporters in an effort to damage his reputation. The FBI did not immediately respond to a request for comment. “Our attorneys have determined that...
  • Tent courts set to open on border for US asylum seekers

    09/11/2019 3:26:08 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 7 replies
    The Trump administration is ready to open a tent court on the border to help handle tens of thousands of cases of asylum seekers forced to wait in Mexico, with hearings held entirely by videoconference. The court, or "soft-sided" facility as U.S. officials call it, is scheduled to begin operations Monday in Laredo, Texas. Another is expected to open soon in Brownsville in the Rio Grande Valley, the busiest corridor for illegal crossings. The administration introduced its "Remain in Mexico" policy in San Diego in January and later expanded it to El Paso, but hearings there are conducted inside large...

    NYPOST ^ | 9/9/19 | Gerren Keith Gaynor,
    A Swedish scientist speaking at Stockholm summit last week offered an unusual possible tactic in combating global climate change: eating human flesh. Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to “awaken the idea.” Soderlund’s argument for human cannibalism was front and center during a panel talk called “Can You Imagine Eating Human Flesh?” at the Gastro Summit, reports the Epoch Times. “Conservative” taboos against cannibalism, he said, can change over time if...
