  • Prager: A Response to My Conservative #NeverTrump Friends

    05/24/2016 7:37:22 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 25 replies ^ | 5-24-2016 | Dennis Prager
    Nine reasons why a conservative should prefer a Trump presidency to a Democrat presidency. When you differ from people you admire, you have to question yourself. After all, what is the purpose of admiring people if they aren't capable of influencing you? So, I have had to challenge my position -- stated since the outset of the Republican presidential debates -- that if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, I will vote for him over Hillary Clinton, or any Democrat for that matter. I devoted many hours of radio and many columns to criticizing Trump. His virtually assured nomination has...

    Clinton White House advisor and longtime friend Vince Foster, Jr. reportedly committed suicide in 1993. His passing was the highest ranking government official’s death since President John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. Hillary Clinton waited 30 hours before telling her own husband about the suicide note left behind by Foster!Donald Trump suggested Foster’s death was “absolutely murder.”The Washington Post reported: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is reviving some of the ugliest political chapters of the 1990s with escalating personal attacks on Bill Clinton’s character — centered on past accusations of sexual assault — amid...

    On May 3 Georgia Governor Nathan Deal (R) took the action Everytown for Gun Safety had urged by vetoing campus carry legislation that had been on his desk for over a month. The legislation–HB 859–was passed by the Georgia House on February 22. On February 26, Deal took front and center in defending the bill, even suggesting that those who opposed it were using old arguments that had proven vacuous after other concealed carry expansions.

    The rules of bigotry, according to the left, represent a constantly shifting kaleidoscope of nonsense. This week, we learned that if you don't want your small daughter sharing a restroom with a man who thinks he is a woman, you are a bigot; if you are a woman who is uncomfortable with a man who thinks he is a woman whipping out his male genitalia to urinate in front of you, you are a bigot; if you are a religious person who doesn't want to participate in an activity you consider sinful, you are a bigot. Conversely, if you are...

    Former WWE superstar Joanie Laurer, also known as Chyna, has died at the age of 45, her manager said in a statement on Twitter early Thursday. The immediate cause of death was unknown. Laurer’s manager told Pro Wrestling Sheet that she was found dead in her Redondo Beach, Calif. home Wednesday and that she had been taking medication for anxiety and sleep deprivation. It’s unclear if her medications played a part in her death, but TMZ reported that authorities are investigating her death as a possible overdose. “She will live forever in the memories of her millions of fans and...

    A professor of the sciences at a western U.S. college wrote an op-ed in The Chronicle of Higher Education about struggling over whether or not to write a former student's requested letter of recommendation -- because the student is a gun enthusiast. "Myrtle Lynn Payne" (the professor wrote under a pseudonym) described her former student in this way: "Sarah" was a very nice young woman who turned up in one of my classes a year or so ago. Her academic abilities were not strong but she had great energy and was a class leader. Definitely a process, and not a...

    Full title - "VIDEO: BLACK COP Shocked by ‘Evil’ Behavior of Trump Protesters; Praises Restraint of Trump, Tucson Supporters" Tucson police officer Brandon Tatum attended Saturday’s Donald Trump rally in Tucson on Saturday as a curious civilian. What he witnessed shocked his conscience so much he recorded a video to describe his experience as a Black man at a Trump rally. Tatum described violent protesters tackling Trump supporters, getting in Trump supporter’s faces, loudly yelling ‘Black lives matter!’ and swearing such that parents had to shield their children from the protesters. He also said the Trump supporters were not racist...

It's a piece in Commentary magazine, and it's a very lengthy piece, and I'm just synthesizing it down to its bare essence as he attempts to explain the Trump phenomenon. I mean, many people that are not for Trump are puzzled beyond their ability to express it, why people support Trump. Some people are getting mad. Some people are taking the rejection of themselves and their ideas personally. Some people say it just doesn't make any sense no matter how they look...

    The FBI has been investigating Clinton for months--but an even more secretive Federal agency has its own important beef with her. For a year now, Hillary Clinton's misuse of email during her tenure as Secretary of State has hung like a dark cloud over her presidential campaign. As I told you months ago, EmailGate isn't going away, despite the best efforts of Team Clinton to make it disappear. Instead, the scandal has gotten worse, with never-ending revelations of apparent misconduct by Ms. Clinton and her staff. At this point, EmailGate may be the only thing standing between Hillary and the...

    An unintentionally revealing interview with House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) shows exactly why he's being touted as an establishment replacement for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, and also why Trump is the shocking frontrunner for the 2016 nomination. Like some modern Marie Antoinette, Ryan seems to be utterly clueless about the state of the nation, and utterly condescending towards the voters he needs to keep his job, according to his answers in the interview with CNBC interviewer John Harwood. But first, with some throat-clearing modesty, Ryan wants to distance himself from establishment calls that he should take...

    Perturbed by their failure to truncate the Trump campaign, National Review is now doubling down in a coming issue with a truly toxic article (behind a pay wall) by roving editor, Kevin D. Williamson. Williamson apparently thinks blue-collar workers whose lives get turned upside down when their jobs disappear due to economic downturns or their manufacturing jobs getting shipped offshore or their mines closing due to new more restrictive government regulation, are all a bunch of worthless bums and crybabies who should just load up the pickup and become the new Okies.

Shapiro, a Harvard lawyer and member of the State Bar of California, apparently violated virtually every clause in his employment contract during an appearance on The Kelly File last Thursday evening.

    Forcing military women into dangerous combat roles traditionally assigned to men is so potentially disastrous that the next president should waste no time reversing this wrong-headed Obama administration edict, a military advocate recently told Congress. Of course, parachuting women into combat roles is what happens when fevered left-wing utopianism takes over the Pentagon. Radicals on the Left are animated by a morbid obsession with equality, not by results or even by helping people. To them rigid adherence to politically correct fantasies trumps all other concerns. If soldiers die as a result of nutty policies, left-wingers rationalize that --damn the torpedoes!--...

Obama will then have 17 days to nominate a far left justice to the Supreme Court.11 of 12 previous recess appointments were approved by the senate. This came up in discussion after news broke that conservative Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead today. This would be his last 'eff-you' to the American people before he leaves office.

    Prager University ^ | 2-8-2016 | Bjorn Lomborg Do electric cars really help the environment? President Obama thinks so. So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don't burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating "zero emissions." But do they really? Let's take a closer look. First, there's the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an...

    The left's greatest intellectual error is its conviction that the world can be divided into a binary power struggle in which both sides agree on the nature of the struggle, but disagree on the outcome. For leftists of a certain generation, it was class. Marx began the Communist Manifesto by laying out a primal class struggle throughout human history. For Marxists, everything in the world could be broken down to a class struggle with the wealthy oppressors on one side and the oppressed on the other. It didn't matter that this model didn't fit a reality in which Communists leaders...

    On January 22, the era of social justice ascendancy on the web came to a battered, exhausted halt. Gregory Alan Elliott, a Toronto artist who was dragged through the Canadian criminal justice system for the “crime” of disagreeing with feminists on Twitter, was declared innocent. His acquittal marked the climax of nearly two years of setbacks for social justice warriors on the web, whose ability to quash dissent and ruin their opponents once seemed unchallengeable. Twitter, once dominated by the activists of the regressive left, rang out in celebration at the victory for free speech. Elliott’s trial stretched from the...

Pushed by Police Superintendent William Taylor and passed by the City Council, they require applicants for unrestricted handgun licenses to state in writing why they should receive such a license. Taylor, who was unavailable for comment on Monday, has sole discretion for approving or denying the applications. "It is...

    The USS Fort Worth, a Navy littoral combat ship, has suffered extensive gear damage while docked at a port in Singapore. The Navy is blaming the incident on a crew error.

Debris also found its way into the lubrication system, which also contributed to failure, Defense News reports. The crew did not follow standard operating procedures. Immediately following the incident, ship repair experts arrived on the scene to assess the damage. Until the investigation wraps up, the ship will remain at...

    According to Islamic clerics, a woman who fails to wear a headscarf is asking to be raped. Consequently, in the eyes of Muslim men, Western women are seen as "promiscuous, loose, and willing," and since no one in the Islamic community refutes this, they engage in the violence and abuse of power that rape represents. In Australia, Lebanese gangs threaten policemen's wives and girlfriends with rape. ****** According to Abigail R.

    The Washington state legislature has convened for a 60 day session, and the anti gunners are wasting no time introducing bills that supposedly address “gun violence”, in which they sort of admit that their “universal background check” ballot initiative has failed to prevent such “gun violence.” Rep. Jim Moeller’s HB 2354 would ban so-called “assault weapons”, in which nearly every modern firearm is defined as an “assault weapon”. Parts of Section 1 of the bill read:(27) “Assault weapon” means: (a) A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has one or more of the following:...

In the 1960s 50 percent of children lived in that family environment, declining to 26 percent in 1980 and continuing to decline until the 1990s when Pew reports the level began to remain more steady.

    The United States of America that we grew up in, and in some cases fought for - no longer exists. I would like to write something stirring in defense of our Constitution, but it isn't under attack. It is simply ignored. -snip- I am tired of being told by Barack Obama on the one hand, and Bill O'Reilly on the other, what my American values are or ought to be. I can work those out for myself. I am tired of living in the dumping ground for whatever group of hostile immigrants the social engineers in Washington import to ease...

    Melissa Klein, the owner of the bakery that refused to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding ceremony, has revealed that the state of Oregon seized all of her bank accounts weeks before she planned to pay the settlement from the suit brought against her by the couple. According to Fox News, Klein and her husband were hit with a penalty of over $135,000 in July payable to the lesbian couple who cited "emotional suffering" for the mom-and-pop bakers holding to their Christian beliefs. The state, ignoring the couple's religious liberty, agreed and said the small business, Sweet Cakes by...

    Chick-fil-A made an exception and opened its doors on Sunday to allow volunteers to work to help victims of the deadly tornadoes in Texas. Some of the locations in northeast Texas opened in order to help those who were victims of the tornadoes and those who were helping them. The stores were not open to the public. Founder Truett Cathy opened his first restaurant in 1946. Chick-fil-A is based in Atlanta and has been closed on Sundays since its creation. The company policy is designed to allow employees to rest and be with family, and attend a house of worship...

    A Minneapolis city councilwoman published the addresses, phone numbers and other personal contact information of people who took her to task for taking part in a Black Lives Matter protest that shut down the Mall of America on Wednesday. Not only that, but Alondra Cano had the audacity to complain on social media that she was the one being targeted for abuse. Cano, who was elected to office in 2013 on the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party ticket, published screenshots of the critical messages she received through the city's website. The shots included the names, home addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers of...

  • Trump Doubles Down On ‘Schlong,’ Veteran Journalists Back Him Up

    Under fire from Democrats and the media for saying Hillary Clinton "got schlonged" in 2008 by Barack Obama, Republican hopeful Donald Trump doubled down. Claiming a candidate getting "schlonged" is "a commonly used word in politics," Trump refused to back down. Once again, #MSM is dishonest. "Schlonged" is not vulgar. When I said Hillary got "schlonged" that meant beaten badly. - Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 23, 2015 He even cited NPR using the term in a political context. NPR's @NealConan said "schlonged" to WaPo re: 1984 Mondale/Ferraro campaign: "That ticket went on to get schlonged at the polls." #Hypocrisy...
  • If You Care About Trump’s ‘Schlonged’ Comment, You’re a Dumb Schmuck

    Here's what Trump said. "Everything that's been involved in Hillary has been losses," Trump averred. "Even her race to Obama, she was going to beat Obama. I don't know who'd be worse. I don't know. How does it get worse? She was favored to win and she got schlonged." Schlong, of course, is Yiddish for penis. So she got reamed. Or screwed. Or any other plethora of English-language equivalents. But no, Trump's vulgarity is suddenly the talk of the town. Not Hillary's lies about Trump appearing ISIS promotional videos. The fact that Hillary Clinton must face down that awful sexist...

    He ought to be ecstatic when his numbers reach zero! Jeb Bush peaked in the polls back in July at 18%. Today he is down to 3-4% support. Jeb Bush told Face the Nation he hated being the frontrunner and likes where he's at in the polls. "I hated that. I feel much better being back here." course, Donald Trump couldn't let Jeb's comment go unnoticed. .@JebBush today said he didn't want to be the front-runner, he would rather be where he is now, 2%. That is the talk of a loser, can't win! - Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)...
