  • So How Many Times Did Obama Refer To Himself In Speech About Hillary? You Won't Believe It.

    Pesident Obama went all in for Hillary Clinton Wednesday, throwing down his presidential legacy and all his political and racial credentials to try to convince the disenfranchised, bitter "Berners" and rightly unenthused black voters to elect the most establishment and corrupt politician ever to run for the highest office. But as we've come to expect, in an Obama speech about, well, anything, it ended up being a whole lot more about himself than the subject at hand. And, frankly, with Clinton as the subject, it was probably a good move. In a mesmerizing video, Grabien highlights all the times Obama...

    The fiery crash on a warm Florida evening on July 4, 2012 left an unconscious man trapped in his burning car. Seemingly out of nowhere, a figure plunged out of the darkness through a sheet of flames to rip open the door and carry the driver to safety just moments before the car exploded. Like a scene from a movie, the Independence Day hero retreated to the shadows of obscurity, but it wouldn’t be the last time he would help someone in danger. A modest man, Sabin Barto, 39, doesn’t talk much about his 10+ years in the U.S. Navy....

    President Barack Obama has allowed some 400,000 unskilled Central American migrants to pour into the nation’s schools, job-markets, welfare offices, hospitals and jails since 2012, according to government data. By the end of June, he had cleared the path for 214,982 “unaccompanied” youths plus 181,456 women and children to come in to the country since October 2012. That adds up to 396,428 migrants — with three months to go before the end of the 2016 fiscal year in October. The inflow is so large that it is greater than the number of African-American men who will turn 18 this year....

  • The Biggest Threat To Oil Prices Is The Dollar, Not A Supply Glut

    07/28/2016 9:14:52 AM PDT · by bananaman22 · 5 replies
    The glut of gasoline and other refined products has taken center stage for the oil markets, threatening to initiate a new bear market and push oil prices down below $40 per barrel for the first time in months. But while a surplus of refined products is weighing on crude prices, there could be another culprit that does not get as much publicity. Goldman Sachs says that a strong dollar deserves more blame for an oil price downturn, and further strengthening of the greenback looms as a much larger threat to prices than the gasoline glut. The U.S. Federal Reserve could...

    Islamic supremacy is arriving in medical settings using stealth means, or what is often referred to as creeping sharia. Common themes include Muslim health care workers refusing to uphold infection control protocols, Muslim medical students refusing to study topics they deem forbidden according to Islamic law, Muslim visitors in hospitals ignoring hygiene guidelines to protect patients, and hospitals bending over backwards (or is it forwards?) to accommodate Muslim demands above and beyond anything done for members of any other religious or demographic group. Also covered are outright acts of violence perpetrated by Muslim men who attack hospital personnel. Islamic supremacy...

    Vice President Joe Biden declared that Donald Trump has "no clue, period" in a Democratic National Convention speech tailored toward the working-class white men who have gravitated toward the GOP nominee. Biden began his pitch for Hillary Clinton by lauding his boss, President Obama, as "the embodiment of honor, resolve and character" and "one of the finest presidents we have ever had." (snip) Biden argued that "if you live in the neighborhoods like the one Jill and I grew up in, if you worry about your job and getting a decent pay, if you worry about your children's education, if...

    Why was there not a single mention of ISIS during the first 2 nights of the Democrat Convention that will name Tim Kaine, a Senator from Virginia, as their Vice Presidential candidate? Consider who Kaine is and you will understand this glaring omission. Just weeks after the September 11, 2001 sneak attack by Muslim terrorists that killed 3000 Americans, Kaine stood on a stage with Jamal Barzinji, a man named by Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch as a “founding father of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.” Between 2003 and 2005 Barzinji’s organization directly donated $43,050 to Kaines campaign for governor of Virginia....

    AShooting Journal ^ | 7/28/2016 | J Hines
    In the early 1900's French gangsters used a weapon called an Apache Revolver that functioned as a revolver, a knife and brass knuckles. The Apache operates on the principle of a pepperbox revolver using a pinfire cartridge and incorporates a fold-over knuckle duster forming the grip and also a rudimentary foldout, dual-edged knife. Due to the lack of a barrel, the revolver’s effective range is very limited, but since all of its component parts can be folded inward towards the cylinder, it was easily concealable inside a pocket. It was common to leave an empty chamber with no cartridge under...

    Conservative Review ^ | 7/28/16 | Ben Weingarten
    Four years ago, the Democratic rank-and-file showed its true stripes in booing references to G-d, and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, both of which had been omitted from the party’s original platform but were rammed through over a failed voice vote by former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Would it come as any surprise then that in 2016 the younger, angrier, true-believing progressives outside the Democratic National Convention would literally burn that wretched sign of “Zionist imperialism” that is the Israeli flag? In fact, such anti-Semitism masquerading as anti-Zionism represents the quintessential act of a progressive movement dedicated to...

At least temporarily, it united them (and the media, same thing) in a spasm of indignation against him, smoothing over their divisions and directing all ire against him. Even if it is a distraction from her coronation, it has put him on the defensive and given people who are still undecided (not us here, but out in the non-political world) one more reason...

    Beginning on Aug. 15, a new tobacco-free policy at Michigan State University will make drivers subject to a $150 fine for choosing to smoke or chew tobacco while traveling on public roads that cross the school’s East Lansing campus. “There’s no directive to our police that this needs to be strictly enforced,” MSU spokesman Jason Cody said. “We are looking at it through an educational lens.” Cody said he didn’t envision a police officer pulling over a motorist for smoking and giving a ticket. He did say he could see an officer on a bike telling a motorist who was...

The Center describes its purpose in part as, “broadening the debate on issues that has for many years been dominated by the belief that government intervention should be the standard solution.” In light of this, we’ve decided to extend that debate to include the issue of criminal justice reform. Although it has not been a major focus, Mackinac Center analysts have studied and written on issues in this area for many years. We published our first civil asset forfeiture study nearly...

In view of the oh-so-close decision by Scotland in 2014 to remain in the United Kingdom (UK), and last month’s decision by England to exit the European Union, a constitutional reform movement in England hopes to head off possible dissolution of the UK! The Constitution Reform Group (CRG) is a committee initiated by academics and politicians whose immediate purpose is to blunt continuing efforts by the Scottish National Party (SNP) to exit the UK, and to ultimately pass a new “settlement” that preserves the union.

A former citizen of communist East Germany, she was a shining example of a new, united Germany who was admired both at home and abroad. Those days are long gone… Merkel, the queen of unlimited, undocumented Muslim immigration; the woman who allowed over a million Muslim refugees into Germany in 2015, is going down in history as the chancellor who destroyed Germany and indeed Western Europe. Make no mistake about it; Europe is on its deathbed and Angela Merkel is...

An empty chair, obviously, represents a vacuum of power despite the very real and...

    In President Obama’s recent speech in response to the Orlando shooting, he admitted that he’s chosen not to use the term “radical Islam” when discussing terrorist attacks. He said that the term would neither accomplish nor change anything. And then he asked us, “Is there a military strategy that is served by this?” To which I would reply a resounding YES. Any able leader, whether in the military, government, or business, understands the fundamental concept of a “target.” It’s the thing that gets defined and identified so the organization knows what it is that they’re trying to do.

But, if we talk talk about the costs to have either a low end or tricked out piece of hardware, I guess the discussions can go on almost forever with the die hard AR’s and Mini-14 folks. Or, better yet which one is most accurate? Here's what some are saying from Reddit and AR15Forum:Poison_Tequila: the truth is a little different. An AR can be picky or reliable, a mini is probably more accurate...

    Bump Don’t get too excited. It’s just one poll. It reflects a convention bump that could - but won’t necessarily - be wiped out by a potential bump for Hillary at the end of this week. It’s a tracking poll, which means it’s reflects a rolling average of several days rather than a snapshot in time. And it’s July. Nothing is being decided now. But if you want the Trump-Pence ticket to win in November, there are plenty of reasons to find the following encouraging:

    “What difference at this point does it make?” When Hillary uttered those words, she knew something the rest of us didn’t. If populists behind Donald Trump have any hope of reclaiming America, it is absolutely crucial that they find out why When Hillary Rodham Clinton turned stomachs with the statement “What difference at this point does it make?” at the January 23, 2013 Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing into the Benghazi scandal, she was, in effect, declaring her 2016 presidency. Wearing the role of “Butcher of Benghazi” as proudly as she was to later wear her $12G Armani jacket...

    In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama used a White House press release to announce a massive public-private-nonprofit campaign with “an ambitious national goal of solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation so that children born today will reach adulthood at a healthy weight.” It took on childhood nutrition, exercise and much more. The resulting initiative is often known by its “Let’s Move” website name. Last week, the Pokémon Go mobile game launched. It encourages users to venture out into the real world to find and collect imaginary cartoon monsters at specific geographic points. Gamers then send their pets...

    The Sierra Club environmental organization opposes the three sources of energy responsible for 91 percent of the electricity generated in Michigan. It has been outspoken in its stance against the use of natural gas, coal and nuclear power to generate electricity for Michigan households and businesses. Michigan generates 32 percent of its electricity by burning coal and another 32 percent comes from nuclear power plants. Natural gas accounts for another 27 percent of electricity generation. Wind and solar account for less than 7 percent of net electricity generation in this state. “The Sierra Club opposes, or is pushing to phase...

    The conventional wisdom has been that Putin is behind it. But no one gives a reason he would want to tip the election from Hillary to Trump. Granted Russia has the capability to hack the emails, but so do dozens of other nations as well as malefactors in the US, both governmental and private.... What would be the motive for Putin to drop this stink bomb on Hillary’s coronation? Certainly Putin has not been treated harshly by this Democrat administration. This administration gave up the missile defense site in Poland in exchange for nothing. It cut American nuclear warheads beyond...

    image from newsok.com After the Dallas police massacre, the Oklahoma City police union asked that officers be allowed to carry their personal rifles with them at work. From newsok.com: Citing the deaths of five officers in Dallas last week, the Fraternal Order of Police has asked that Oklahoma City officers be allowed to carry their personal rifles and ammunition and be issued additional body armor. A century ago, it was common for law officers to provide their own firearms. In many small departments, personal firearms are still the norm.  But the trend toward uniformity and liability lawsuits have pushed...

    Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows with a somewhat surreal satellite appearance before the Democratic National Convention that drew parallels to Apple’s famous "1984" ad. Clinton appeared on a giant screen toward the end of artist Alicia Keys' appearance to thank delegates for formally selecting her as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. When she appeared, the screen showed glass breaking to reveal Clinton, a nod to her status as the first female major-party presidential nominee.

    One of the frontlines in the jihadi campaign to destroy America is on our college campuses, where jihadi front groups find a congenial home protected by left-wing academics, and with a vulnerable population of young Jews to attack. Antisemitic incidents on campus doubled in 2015 – including 56 violent assaults - and doubled again in 2016.
