  • Should Ted Cruz endorse Paul Nehlen against Paul Ryan? [vanity]

  • Candidate Says Coal Remarks "Taken out of Context" [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 8 May 2016 | John Semmens
    Seeking to dissuade West Virginia voters from holding her promise "to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business" against her, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton maintains that "those remarks have been distorted by being taken out of context." The specific context, according to the candidate "was the need to get the votes of environmentally conscious individuals in states that have no coal industry. For my opponents and the media to inject that statement into the West Virginia primary distorts the nuanced messages I am trying to express to the varied constituencies around the nation. It...

    EVA SHOCKEY HAS BECOME the face of women in the hunting movement, and that is a big deal. There have been exactly two women to grace the cover of Field & Stream magazine in the last 100 years: the first lady was Queen Elizabeth; the second Eva Shockey. The National Shooting Sports Foundation reported that the increase in hunting participation from 2008 to 2012 among males was only 1.9 percent; among women it was 10. In those four short years, the number of female hunters jumped from 3.04 million to 3.35 million. Did Eva have anything to do with that?...
  • A Balanced Budget Amendment Path to Free Government

    05/06/2016 11:45:52 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 16 replies
    Free Government is that happy condition wherein government respects and protects the unalienable, Natural Rights of the nation, and makes no law without its consent. Under this simple guidance, government is twice limited: by its end, which any of us would have a right to pursue were there no government at all, and by its means, which require our consent. Yes, the presidential campaign season is entertaining. But if the practical extent of our God-given freedom depends on the election of either Bernie, The Beast or Donald Trump, it follows that actual free government is as real and enduring as...

    Former Navy SEAL Dom Raso recently recorded a video in which he blasted Hillary Clinton, calling her an “ignorant liar” who once tried to “use the heroism of our nation’s armed forces to promote herself as the next commander in chief.” The video is now going viral. According to Conservative Tribune, Raso was referring to the time Hillary claimed she dodged sniper fire in Bosnia in 1996. She later admitted this wasn’t true, blaming her lie on simply misspeaking. Raso and countless other veterans, however, were furious. “(W)hat makes this truly disgusting to me is that when she was called...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 5/1/2016 | Tom Gantert
    For years, Ecorse Public Schools was a poster child for claims of ineffective oversight of school finances by the Michigan Department of Education. Despite laws that require school districts to balance their annual budget, and rules that require offenders to eliminate deficits within two years, Ecorse spent more on operations than it collected in revenue for 10 consecutive years. Only one other school district has managed to stay out of balance for as long (New Haven Community Schools in Macomb County). But by June 2015, the district had eliminated its $661,000 deficit and projected a positive balance — $343,000 —...

What are the potential dangers of mixing politics and Christianity? If by mixing politics and Christianity one means establishing a theocracy, then of course that would be a danger. But that is not what Christianity is. If you fear theocracy, then you should fear Islam, which advocates an unaccountable civil power imposing Sharia without the consent of the governed. Christianity, on the...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 5/2/2016 | Ben DeGrow
    More than half of Detroit’s students have opted out of attending schools controlled by Detroit Public Schools and have enrolled instead in neighboring districts or nearby public charter schools. But thousands of students remain stuck in schools that are poorly run, fiscally mismanaged and, as nearly everyone agrees, in dire need of reform. DPS faces a fiscal breaking point. Lansing has provided additional state funds to keep the district open for the rest of the school year, but additional resources still are needed to pay off its debt. The Michigan Legislature may lend a hand with that debt, but if...

    It's hard to imagine contemporary society without Oedipus complexes, defence mechanisms, Freudian slips, and the psychiatrist's couch. But Catholic, Dutch psychologist Gerard van den Aardweg is not cracking the champagne on Sigmund Freud's 150th birthday. [This is Freud's 160th.] MercatorNet interviews Dr. Van den Aardweg on the impact of Freudian theories on modern psychology and views on sexuality. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis, was born on May 6, 1856, 150 years ago. In New York, it was Sigmund Freud Day; in Austria, it was Sigmund Freud Year. For his supporters, the 20th century was the Sigmund Freud Century....

    In an article appearing in this Sunday's New York Times Magazine, White House speechwriter Ben Rhodes (@rhodes44) admits what Israel supporters claimed all along: He lied to Congress in order to sell the nuclear sellout to Iran. Rhodes’s innovative campaign to sell the Iran deal is likely to be a model for how future administrations explain foreign policy to Congress and the public. The way in which most Americans have heard the story of the Iran deal presented — that the Obama administration began seriously engaging with Iranian officials in 2013 in order to take advantage of a new...

    This biathlon rifle was designed for target competition, not to kill people. A common slogan of disarmists is "Guns are designed to kill people".  There are several variations; the only purpose of guns is to kill people; guns are designed for one thing: to kill; assault weapons are designed for one purpose: to Kill as many people as quickly as possible.   All are false.  It is easy to demonstrate that this is true. First, what are guns designed to do?  Guns are designed to project force at a distance.  They do this by propelling a projectile out of the...
  • State Employees' Average Cost Up to $117,000

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 5/2/2016 | James Hohman
    The average state employee now costs taxpayers $117,000 per year, according to data from the state Department of Civil Service. This includes both salaries and benefits. The total cost of benefits has exploded, even though there are fewer state employees. Annual retirement costs increased from $431.8 million in 2001 to $1.6 billion in 2015. Three factors are driving the increase in employee compensation: a jump in the pension system’s unfunded liabilities, an attempt to pre-fund retiree health care benefits and an increase in the cost of medical insurance. Between 2001 and 2015, the gap between how much has been set...

    Any fair reading of State Department and general federal government laws regarding the use of classified information by federal employees makes it is clear that Hillary Clinton violated the law—both by improperly setting up her own private server, and then by sending information through it that was classified. And it is evident that Clinton went to such extraordinary lengths in order to mask her communications and shield them from the sort of Freedom of Information Act suits that now are plaguing her—and that she arbitrarily decided which of her private server emails were public and which private, and then simply...

Earlier in the evening, Hannity went after Ryan in a string of tweets, saying it was “pathetic” to not get behind the presumptive nominee.

The SSA, which will propose the rule in Thursday's edition of the Federal Register, says it plans to notify disability beneficiaries who might be reported and establish a process for them to appeal their placement in the FBI’s background check system. The proposal is just the latest attempt...

I therefore offer the following explanations for future reference: I call the Democrat Party the Party of Jim Crow because to this day, it stands for division on racial and class lines. it is elitist and holds that the majority cannot be trusted to run their own lives and need the "benevolent" management of those who are smarter, know more -- and are of better character. That is the essence of Progressivism, which itself is a socio-ideological carry-over from the Plantation owners'...

    OK2A-Action ^ | Thursday, May 05, 2016 | Tim Gillespie
    House Republicans are trying to kill HJR1009, OK2A's proposed amendment to the state constitution that would strengthen the right to keep and bear arms at the state level. This right has been weakened to the point that the state courts would uphold almost any restriction on the right. It is critical that Oklahomans have a second layer of defense (through the state courts) because the federal courts are unlikely to overturn restrictions such as magazine capacity limit laws, etc. If passed, HJR1009 would go to a vote of the people on the November 2016 General Election ballot. These Republicans are...

    Last week the full titanium model of Captain America’s shield stood up to the test against 8 rounds .45 ACP caliber. This week we get to find out if it can be successfully used as an offensive weapon to go for the kill. The titanium model that Jerry Miculek is using is a 12-pound shield that matches exactly that of Captain America. Take a look at the video as Miculek tries his hand at throwing the shield as a weapon at a ballistics dummy to see what the damage may look like. See the result here.

    The media's role as government watchdog doesn't exempt it from accountability for its own excesses and abuses Freedom of the press protects the right to obtain and publish information or opinions without government censorship or fear of punishment, whether or not government finds the material offensive, or disagrees with it. Free speech enables people to obtain information from a diversity of sources, make decisions, and communicate those decisions to the government. Recently I wrote about having my press credential renewal denied by the Capitol Correspondents Association of California, appointed as an arm of the California Legislature’s Joint Rules Committee, which...

    The Big Short: As The Big Short is short on reality, Big Government is short on accountability If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it.—Ronald Reagan Enter Dodd Frank: legislation named after Democrats’ Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank, which enacted 2,300 pages of banking regulations. What could have possibly gone wrong with 2,300 pages of new government regulations on banks? This:

    Because as long as they're not held responsible, the nation's demise is apparently just fine As far as the #NeverTrump crowd is concerned, Hillary’s election is apparently a done deal. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy if ever there was one, but they just know Donald Trump can’t possibly beat her, and they wouldn’t help him do it in any event because Trump is so icky to them. Ask them about this, and they will offer elaborate justifications for why Hillary’s election is not their fault! Here’s Brandon Craig at the Reformed Layman going to quite the lengths to explain why a...

    Simply because we conservatives can't bear the thought of four more years of something that looks even much worse than what we have endured for the past eight I am an American writer, and I am proud of my association with Canada Free Press. It is the Canadian paper that behaves in a more traditionally American spirit than do many publications based in the United States. I think if Benjamin Franklin were alive today, and looking to resurrect his Pennsylvania Gazette, he would soon be in league with CFP whose motto/battle cry is, “Because without America, there is no free...

      Q.  Which came first, the chicken or the egg?                         A.  Does it really matter if you believe believe in gay marriage? The outpost of left wing totalitarianism raised it’s [trigger warning] ugly little head again in NYC. Mayor de Blasio joined Councilman Danny Dromm from Queens in calling for a boycott of Chick-fil-A restaurants in the city. As a rationale Domm issued the following statement: “Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT.” This group imparts a strong anti-LGBT message by forcing their employees and volunteers to adhere to a policy that prohibits same-sex love,” he said. “It is outrageous that Chick-fil-A is quietly...

    Hillary Clinton is a reflexive liar. Lying has gotten her where she is, but lying will also be her downfall. She will quickly learn she will not be able to lie her way out of attacks merely because she a woman and the Democrats’ candidate. “That’s how it always is,” is now “That’s how it was.” In what might be called “The Trump Effect,” Clinton is now facing a new kind of voter. Donald Trump’s “tell the truth and speak like the guys on the loading dock not on the stage” approach to winning elections has awakened a new spirit...
