  • FL: Man Shoots Large Gator near Horses; Gator Attacks, Shooter Charged

    Photo from Sumter County Sheriff's Office About 6:30 p.m. on June 21, 2016, a 8.5-9 foot, 300 lb alligator was discovered near some agitated horses that belonged to Reginald Blanton, 74 years old. Blanton shot the reptile with a 9mm handgun, reportedly hitting it two or three times.  Where he hit it is not clear, but the shots would likely have been  mortal, because the alligator was still there, lying in the grass, when the authorities "euthanized it". While the story is two months old, there are important lessons to learn. After the shots, Blanton's stepson, Jack Hildreth, 58,...

    “Never divide your forces in the face of a superior enemy.” This famous dictum has been a truism of war for 5,000 years. Heedless, our brothers and sisters in the Establishment, and in #NeverTrump, believe they can summon victory from the ashes of a conflagration of their own making. Worse, they continue to pursue their divisive actions despite their inability to define the victory they are pursuing.

    Peter Hart, a Democrat and one of the country’s most respected pollsters, admitted on Friday that Donald Trump can win the White House if he has “one sane month” on the campaign trail. After conducting a focus group of Wisconsin voters last night for the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center, Hart appeared on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” and said voters “don’t trust Clinton to give them an honest answer and they don’t trust Trump to be a safe leader.” When host Chuck Todd asked Hart which candidate had the best chance of winning the election and undecided voters after...

    The latest 14,900 emails recovered by the FBI came from the 33,000 that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton deleted on the grounds that they were personal rather than work-related. Oddly, one of the topics discussed in many of them was Benghazi, which would seem to be "work-related" and as such legally required to be preserved and archived. Hillary for President campaign manager Robbie Mook urged that "we not jump to hasty conclusions. If you will recall, Secretary Clinton admitted she authored many emails dealing with planning her daughter's wedding. While we all know about the attack on Ambassador Stevens that...

    Dana Perino, a Fox News pundit on ‘The Five’, recently looked into the camera and with a pained expression across her face stated that the polls were solidly favoring Hillary Clinton, and that they were right. She went on to explain that during the 2012 election, everyone, including her, thought the polls were wrong and too heavily skewered toward the Democrats. This belief, based on historic polling, was well founded. When Ronald Reagan ran against Jimmy Carter, the polls, right up to the day of the election, suggested a landslide for Carter. The opposite was true, and the landslide was...

    UnDark ^ | August 25, 2016 | Nick Leiber
    Humans are eating more fish than ever. And since 2014, most of what we eat has come not from the wild, but from fish farms operated by the fast-growing aquaculture industry. But what do these farmed fish eat? The answer is just as unappetizing as it sounds — and just as worrisome to advocates of sustainable seafood. The typical fish-farm diet (“aquafeed,” in industry parlance) contains fish — specifically fish meal and fish oil, made largely from wild-caught “forage” fish. And because stocks of wild fish are declining, that poses a serious long-term problem for the world food supply. Wild...

    Black Lives Matter protesters campaigning for "justice" over the death of a man under police restraint occupied a Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) office demanding action. Campaigners raising awareness about the case of Kingsley Burrell, who died in 2011 following contact with police, staged a noisy but non-violent demonstration in the Colmore Gate offices in Birmingham after an earlier rally in the city. The protest dispersed when a senior manager from the West Midlands CPS agreed to take a letter from the campaign group raising 10 key points in Mr Burrell's case, and pass it to the director of public prosecutions...

    Hillary Clinton claims that some of Donald Trump’s appeal is “xenophobic, racist, misogynistic.” On Thursday she asked, “If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?” But who actually cares more about blacks, in particular poor blacks? On everything from education to jobs to crime, Trump’s policies offer a lifeline to people who have been losing ground for decades. Hillary’s policies will just exacerbate them. And no amount of speeches will change that. On education, Trump strongly supports school choice. This would give inner-city blacks a way out of horribly performing public schools. Clinton attacks charters and...

    Revenue sharing payments from the state of Michigan to the city of Jackson were $219,300 lower in 2015 than in 2010. But Jackson’s overall annual tax revenues grew by $4.3 million over the same period, including $2.3 million more from its city income tax. The decline of $220,000 in state revenue sharing funds, though, was the subject of a recent public meeting in Jackson hosted by a statewide local government lobbying organization called the Michigan Municipal League. The MML is trying to make an issue out of state revenue sharing payments as part of a pitch for municipalities to get...

    Ever since Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony was delayed by a fall and a concussion, the state of her health has been questioned by her critics and treated by here defenders as a medical subset of the vast right-wing conspiracy. She attempted to make light of new questions being raised, in part from simple observation of her recent behavior by opening a jar of pickles on Jimmy Kimmel’s show Monday night and having him feel her pulse. Team Clinton would have everyone believe this is just another far-right conspiracy theory but incidents indicating she might be in a real pickle over...

    In Traverse City, a couple could lose thousands of dollars in cash as well as their home because of the state’s loose civil forfeiture laws. Their case shows the perspective of both sides of this issue, but the solution is fairly simple – governments should not be able to take ownership of people’s assets unless they are convicted of a crime. The Traverse City Record-Eagle does a great job laying out the situation. The Traverse Narcotics Team believes Kenneth and Mary Murray profited from what it calls “ill-gotten gains.” The law enforcement agency accuses the couple of violating the state’s...

In fact her approval rating from this group has sagged from a high of 47% in July 2015 to just 31% last month. This sharp drop among a group she MUST fool in order to win has probably forced her to recently propose free college for everybody; but the plan is so weak and shot through with obvious flaws that even her strongest supporters on the Left are panning it.

    A resident of a township in southeastern Michigan thinks she was wrongly denied a request for township documents related to a proposed landfill expansion. Salem Township denied the Freedom of Information Act request, saying the information the requester asked for did not exist. But records subsequently acquired from Washtenaw County show that the relevant documents do exist, and were in the township’s possession when the request was submitted. Tracey Birkenhauer of Northville sent a FOIA request to Salem Township on March 25, 2016, requesting all documentation submitted to the township since 2010 regarding the expansion of the Arbor Hills landfill....

    In late June 2016, the state released the long-awaited Michigan Education Finance Study, better known as an “adequacy study.” Twice delayed from its original March 31, 2016, deadline due to errors by different parties, the report purchased by December 2014 state legislation has been greeted with an underwhelming reaction. Colorado-based Augenblick, Palaich, and Associates (APA) secured a $399,000 taxpayer-funded contract to produce the report. Every one of the company’s 13 earlier studies of different states’ school finance systems concluded with the same call: Spend more money. As even the adequacy study shows, a massive increase in spending absent any changes...

    As I recall from Gibbon, the Western Roman Empire went out with more of a whimper than a bang. By the time of Alaric and his Visigoths in 410 AD, Rome was so corrupt and weak there was little to stand in his way. In broad strokes it is fair to say that Roman society declined simultaneously with government. Long before the fall, Roman republican citizenship was a precious possession, a jewel of unsurpassed value. As such it was held closely and kept in short supply, for among other privileges, the Roman citizen wasn’t taxed. He was exempt from the...

Maybe we should start thinking about not only who is undervalued but who is overvalued in our society.”(continued)

    In schools across America, "student newspapers" are common activities for middle and high school students who are interested in journalism, media, or technology. However, these "student newspapers" often are little more than mouthpieces for the liberal public school elites. A perfect example of this can be found in Alexandria, Virginia. The West Potomac Wire, a "student-run" publication associated with West Potomac High School, claims to be the "student voice of West Potomac High School." But if their news content is to be believed, that voice is overwhelmingly liberal, and fully content with stretching facts, exaggerating, and forthrightly lying. I challenge...

Yet, she had no problem taking millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation, from Islamic countries: • Algeria donated $250,000 to $500,000 •...

    Former leader of the UK Independent Party Nigel Farage, credited for Brexit, addressed the audience at a Trump campaign rally in Jackson, Mississippi on Wednesday night. Farage left the UKIP after the United Kingdom voted to 'leave' the European Union. "You can beat the pollsters, you can beat the commentators, you can beat Washington," Farage said to cheers. "If you want change, you better get your walking boots on." "Anything is possible if enough decent people want to fight the establishment," Farage said. Farage also took a shot at President Barack Obama for campaigning against Brexit....

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 8/24/2016 | Derek Draplin
    The Ann Arbor City Council last week voted for an ordinance that will ban the sale of tobacco products to people under 21, making it the first city in Michigan to raise the legal purchasing age from 18. The Council voted 9-2 on Aug. 4 for an ordinance sponsored by Council Member Julie Grand, a Democrat representing the city’s 3rd Ward. Ann Arbor officials were explicit about their lack of concern with whether the ordinance conflicts with state law, and that they hope the rest of the state follows the city’s lead. "The tobacco lobby has inflicted enough misery on...
  • The Lack of EpiPen Competitors is the FDA's Fault

    08/25/2016 11:26:30 AM PDT · by amorphous · 25 replies
    There’s a new bout of outrage over an expensive medicine or medical treatment. While the good in question changes each time, the blame always seems to fall on greedy corporations who just aren’t regulated enough. Free markets and capitalism are the scapegoat, even when nothing remotely resembling unhampered markets in health care is in place in the United States. This time, it’s the EpiPen, a device that easily and safely injects epinephrine to quickly open up airways for people undergoing severe anaphylaxis because of an extreme allergy. It has saved the lives of countless people who are allergic to bee...
  • The Voting System is Rigged—Part Three

    Election Fraud and Voter fraud is real The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.—Karl Marx Democrats insist that fraud during elections is a myth. They claim voter fraud is “virtually non-existent,” buying votes is too difficult and too “legally risky to pull off,” tampering with voting machines is a misnomer because they are often backed up by paper ballots or other means of auditing (except for the 2000 election between George Bush and Al Gore, which Democrats still insist was stolen from Gore).
  • Paul Begala is shocked, SHOCKED, that the press holds the Clintons to such lofty ethical standards

    It's just so, so, SO, unfair Technically, Paul Begala’s job title is “Senior adviser for Priorities USA Action and Democratic strategist, Paul Begala.” In reality, it should read “lifelong Clinton suck-up and media shill, Paul Begala.” He’s been wandering from network to network, defending the Clintons in one capacity or another, for decades. ...And that’s fine. It’s his bread and butter. It’s “what he does.” Special: Something Happened in Europe That Just Lowered Your Mortgage However, it looks like he’s finally had enough. Paul Begala is outraged. He’s fed up. He’s mad as hell and he’s not going to take...

    Is God Really Good? Posted by Granville Sewell Chapter 6, “Is God Really Good?” of my new Wipf and Stock book Christianity for Doubters is almost the same as the “Epilogue” of my 2015 Discovery Institute Press book In the Beginning and Other Essays on Intelligent Design. What does the problem of pain have to do with intelligent design? A lot, I think, because after 40 years of promoting intelligent design, it is obvious to me that many of the strongest opponents of design, for all their talk about defending science, are completely immune to scientific arguments, they will never...

    Like many people, when I read about a new app called ZIP, I was curious. The owner/inventor said that based on the daily 100,000 sample size his invention attracts, the app provides a fairly reliable snapshot of public sentiment on a variety of issues including politics. In fact he says based on what he sees, Donald Trump is on his way to victory. Of course since the left doesn’t like the answers ZIP questions are producing, the inventor is being attacked. Welcome to our world. Here are some ZIP app answers to questions that will be surprising and infuriating to...

    Besides having in common big government bureaucracies, all of these various left wing ideologies end up with an elite "ruling class" of one sort or another lording it over "we the people" Trump opposes globalism. Hillary thrives on it. Globalism is far more than “geographical” or “eliminating national borders and boundaries.” It is spiritual and demonic at its core. Few—very few—understand this. ...Trump understands that it is 11:59 p.m. on the “cultural clock.” America is near the end—morally, economically, militarily and, sadly, spiritually.—Dr. Jim Garlow “If You’re On the Fence About Your Vote, This Pastor Clarifies How the Very Future...
