    The Daily Caller ^ | July 28, 2015 | Emmakristina Sveen
    Rabbi Ari Hier — the Campus Outreach Coordinator at a Holocaust research human rights organization — had the perfect response to the New York University (NYU) professor who has claimed that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is a contemporary Adolf Hitler. Arthur Caplan, a left-leaning Bioethics professor at NYU, co-authored an article on Poynter (as well as tweets incessantly) about the “dangerous” and “proto-Hitlerite” Donald Trump — jumping on the bandwagon of tax-payer funded educators who equate Republican presidential candidates to Germany’s radical mass-murderer and dictator. Caplan, also NYU’s Director of Medical Ethics, predicted that while it’s easy to say...

This wonder mineral is the backbone of our everyday lives, popping up in everything from the glass in our windows to our mountains of electronics. And while investors have long appreciated the steady rise in demand for this preferred mineral, the number of new applications continues to multiply. Smart phones,...

    In a recent interview, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) called open borders a “right-wing proposal” and vocalized his opposition to an open borders policy. On July 16, Sanders sat down with Vox’s Ezra Klein for an interview. During the interview, Klein asked Sanders about his identification as a socialist and its implications for his policy positions. […] At one point during the conversation, Klein began to ask Sanders, “You said being a democratic socialist means a more international view.

New morals, values, laws and rights are established at the benefit of a few to the detriment of the majority.

The group is the non-profit with the sole goal of supporting President Obama's policies and points of view. The only question left at this point is whether the President thinks Planned Parenthood is getting a good deal on their baby part sales.

    There are few things to understand if you are forced to kill someone or in if someone is trying to kill you. Most of the people are unaware of them but it is important to understand them. As I said many times before, most people simply did not face real violence before. I mean killing or fighting for life. That’s good because we live in society where those things are not needed. On the other side, from the point of survival if you did not went through serious violence before you lack that experience, you do not really know what...

The Houston facility has also conducted clinical trials in the area as part of research on contraception, HIV testing and the human papillomavirus vaccine. Soon after the first undercover video was released, state leaders ordered investigations into Planned Parenthood. That investigation has included visits to the Houston clinic by representatives of the Department of State Health Services and the attorney general’s office, Planned Parenthood officials...

    In addition to harassing conservative activist groups it also was discovered that the IRS has been using these groups’ donor lists to select which taxpayers will be subjected to audits. President Obama blamed the Republican Congress for this outcome, saying that “if they weren’t so stingy with the agency’s budget this might not have had to happen. Ideally, the IRS should audit everybody’s tax returns, but this would require more employees and a bigger budget. Faced with the necessity to limit the number of returns it audits, the IRS made a reasonable decision to narrow the scope of its efforts.”...

After all, Michigan has more coastline, more fresh water and more craft breweries per capita than the Golden State. Michiganders aren’t alone in noticing and capitalizing upon the rise of craft brew. According to the Brewer’s Association, a group that promotes the interests of craft brewers, only the District of Columbia and Oklahoma...

    It’s sometimes said that you can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep. That makes sense. Friendships are generally based on complementary personalities, shared values, and a variety of intangibles that cause people to bond. Money in politics is a similar barometer. The vast majority of Americans never donate any money to politicians or get involved in politics at all. For all of the kvetching about money in politics, there’s really not that much there. In 2012 a total of $6 billion was spent on politics. That includes spending by campaigns, outside groups, and independent organizations....

This is not the first time our President has characterized opposition to his policies in extreme terms. Obama abandons all principles and then blames his detractors in...

    At the National Education Association annual convention, the nationwide teachers union passed an action item warning its members about right-to-work laws that “undermine high-quality education for every child.” But critics of the NEA say what right-to-work laws really undermine is the union's ability to promote a far-left ideology that violates the values of conservative members the union boasts of representing. In Michigan, teachers pay $183 a year to the NEA as part of membership in the Michigan Education Association. The NEA's Michigan affiliate also tries to make it hard for members of any political persuasion to leave, notwithstanding Michigan's right-to-work...

Jeb Bush smells like money.  The scent emanates from him like a perfume, and it attracts the rich, establishment types from both parties in the same way Reagan attracted blue-collar workers to his cause.  This is all the more ironic and remarkable since...

    Both the Michigan House and Senate have passed their own road funding plans after the colossal failure of Proposal 1. Both plans show that lawmakers have learned from that debacle. The House proposal contains only a small tax hike on diesel, plus modest new assessments on electric, hybrid or “alternative” fuel vehicles (whose owners pay little or no gas tax). The rest of its new revenue for roads comes from earmarking a portion of future income tax revenue to road funding. The Senate likewise earmarks some income tax revenue for roads, but also hikes the gas tax from 19 cents...

Both friend and foe have touted this deal as “historic” and promised (or moaned) that its provisions will stay in place for the long term. But in practice, this is not a ten-year agreement or a fifteen-year agreement or an eternal agreement. Paragraph 36 tells us the truth: Any...

    Like many on this thread, there is no way in hell I can make myself vote for Jeb. Hopefully he will fade and my hypothetical question will never be an issue. But here it is. If Jeb wins the nomination [which he still could - hell he has the wall street dems giving him cash right now...], would you welcome a 3rd party candidate or would you vote for jeb or would you stay home?

The guy is gayer than a picnic basket but won’t admit it. That makes him a target for blackmail. Next.Jeb Bush? He’s the Rachel Dolezal of Mexicans. He wants to be Mexican so bad he mows his lawn 3 times a day. When he passes gas it sounds like La Cucaracha. I agree, he should be president… of Mexico. Next.Hillary Clinton? Is she finished with her menopause yet? I...

    Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was a part of a larger, more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)A US property tycoon has proposed what he calls a "radical solution" to the world's crisis of refugees who have nowhere to call home: simply create a new country for them to live in. Jason Buzi, a millionaire Israeli businessman living in San Francisco, believes that a new island could be created to house all of the world's millions of refugees. His 'Refugee Nation' project suggests creating a brand new country "which any refugee, from anywhere in the world, can call home" - perhaps by taking over an existing country without many people or building a new island in the...

      Barack Obama is a liar of biblical proportions. That's not new, but every now and then he spouts something that makes you want to scream "Are you effing kidding me?" And he's done it again. His Weekly Address yesterday was a beauty. He starts by patting himself on the back as usual: Hi, everybody. It’s been seven years since the worst financial crisis in generations spread from Wall Street to Main Street – a crisis that cost millions of Americans their jobs, their homes, their life savings. It was a crisis that cost all of us. It was a reminder that...

    It looks like the Occupy Democrats Facebook page has a problem with making intelligent memes. (like this one)I'm NO FAN of John McCain, but you can count me as one of those who didn't like what Trump had said about him. I also wasn't a fan of the other comment, but there are 4 reasons this meme needs to XYZ, because it's stupid is showing: None of what Trump said is motivated race, people were outraged because he was disparaging the service of a POW, dubious as some think it might be. Leave it to liberals to elevate illegal immigration to what...

    Young conservative CJ Pearson, who became famous for attacking President Obama on YouTube, tweeted his endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for president Monday. This is a turnaround from the 12-year-old's April endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Cruz responded on Twitter saying, "Grateful for your support. Let's #MakeDCListen and break the #WashingtonCartel!" The switch came after Cruz took to the Senate floor on Friday to accuse Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying. According to Cruz, McConnell promised 54 Republican senators that "there was no deal" with senators trying to revive the Export-Import Bank. But Friday, McConnell began procedures...
