    Donald Trump arrived in Laredo at the US border with Mexico today. Trump met with reporters before his tour of the border. He told reporters the Border Patrol invited him and then backed off because they didnt want to get involved. Donald Trump: The reason they invited me was because of the tremendous problem and tremendous crime. And all of the things youre talking about. So they invited me and then at the last moment, I mean we were virtually in the air, and they said, we cant get involved. And I heard they got those orders from Washington. Reporter:...

    As if we need more proof of how tone deaf and self-destructive GOP elites can be towards their most reliable voters, the New York Times reports that at a weekend meeting of the Republican Governors Association there was an attempt by some “donors and operatives” to come up with a plan to bar current Republican frontrunner Donald Trump from the presidential debates.**************** The Republican Party has lost the popular vote in 4 of the last 5 presidential elections. The only election won was the re-election of a sitting president (Bush in ’04) during a time of war. Not only are...
  • Appliance industry warns federal dishwasher regs would lead to dirty dishes

    The home appliance industry has a problem with the Obama administration's new dishwasher regulations: They're a wash, so to speak. The recent proposal from the Department of Energy is meant to boost dishwasher efficiency by setting stricter limits on the amount of water each dishwasher can use, among other changes. Under the plan, washers could use only 3.1 gallons of water for a single load. But an appliance industry group says the new measures would be counterproductive -- as they'd force users to run their dishwashers more, and hand-wash, just to get the same results, in turn using more water....

    Donald Trump escalated his feud with Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain Saturday in a way that probably wasn’t the most politically astute.Appearing at the 2015 Family Leadership Summit in Iowa, Trump decided to make the case that McCain is not a war hero. Asked by moderator Frank Luntz why he would call a war hero like McCain a “loser,” Trump replied, “He’s not a war hero.”“He’s a war hero because he was captured,” Trump said sarcastically. “I like people who weren’t captured, I hate to tell you.”McCain spent five and a half years in a North Vietnamese prison where he...

    As Donald Trump continues to rise in Republican presidential primary polls, The Huffington Post announced today that it will suddenly cease coverage of Trumps campaign as part of its politics coverage.

    The Atlanta chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has proposed that the sculpture of Confederacy President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, and General "Stonewall" Jackson be sand blasted off the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia. Chapter leader Richard Rose is telling local news outlets, "Those guys need to go." They can be sand-blasted off, or somebody could carefully remove a slab of that and auction it off to the highest bidder. All of this recognition of Confederate generals is upholding the white supremacy on which the Confederacy was founded and the war was...

The last time a feeble leader of a fading nation came bearing Peace in our time, a pugnacious controversial right-winger retorted, You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war. That right-winger went on to lead the United Kingdom against Hitler. The latest worthless agreement with a murderous dictatorship is being brandished by John Kerry, a man who instinctively seeks out dishonor the way a pig roots for truffles.

    The Marine officer who made female recruits better shots at boot camp has been relieved of her command, igniting controversy. Military Times reports that Lt. Col. Kate Germano served only a year as the head of the 4th Recruit Training Battalion on Parris Island, S.C., before her dismissal. She got bounced June 30 after a command investigation accused her of toxic leadership by berating and showing contempt for subordinates in public. The 300-page report found her to be hostile, unprofessional and abusive and told recruits that sexual assault was preventable, and that those who drank put themselves in a...

    We changed our mind and started opposing gay marriage when we realized we didnt matter to gays and lesbians. And the fact that we counted for so little in the eyes of the community asking for total power over people like us was not only emotionally hurtful, but also, and perhaps more importantly, politically terrifying. A funny thing happened on the way to equality. It started with tales of lesbians stuck in the hospital after car accidents, unable to receive their own lovers as visitors. Who could oppose legal protections to prevent such tragedies from happening? I bought into these...

    Two years into his reign, Pope Francis has emerged as an extreme socialist obsessed with the usual phony leftist problems such as manmade global warming, American institutional racism, and income inequality. Muslims are indiscriminately slaughtering Christians around the world while Christianity itself seems on the verge of being eclipsed globally by Islam, but these things barely register with this pope. This pseudo-intellectual pope keeps on spouting the same misanthropic Marxist platitudes as he hitches his papacy to global warming, the new international totalitarian cause. Sounding like Mao Zedong, Francis said a bold cultural revolution was needed to save the planet....

    Obama has famously (infamously?) long been enamored of the idea of fundamentally transforming America, and one of the foundational aspects of American culture that he has in his sights is the Second Amendment and Americans’ firmly held belief in their right to keep and bear arms.His former attorney general, Eric Holder, went so far as to proclaim—back in the 1990’s—that “we really need to brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”At least he understood that it’s the American people who resist infringement of this right. The administration has tried to pass gun control legislation, most notably...

The information included tax returns and other tax information on file with the IRS. The IRS said the thieves accessed a system called "Get Transcript." In order to access the information, the thieves cleared a security screen that required knowledge about the taxpayer, including Social Security number, date of birth, tax filing status and street address.

    It's been a troubling semester, but not because many of my students passively and/or actively resist the knowledge that I try to pass on to them. It's been frustrating not merely because government regulations and mandates have made me into a secretary filling out a myriad of online forms. It's been disheartening not only because leftist propaganda surrounds me and I am but one small voice in the academic desert trying to teach true American core values. No, it's been a sad and sometimes heartbreaking semester because many college students' assorted troubles are related to the fact that they are...

    A recent letter to the editor written by Professor Bruce McKinney shows why we cannot trust most college professors and administrators to defend free speech. In just four short paragraphs, McKinney misrepresents key facts, misapplies relevant law, and attempts to project his own hypocrisy upon those who are committed to defending the free exchange of ideas. His letter is presented in full with my commentary interspersed between each paragraph:A recent letter cited "UNCW's administration attempt to stop freedom of speech" in which very large graphic images of aborted fetuses were shown on campus.If Professor McKinney’s letter stopped here, he would...

    Apparently ABC News standards have dropped since Geraldo Rivera used to work for them. Unlike George Stephanopolous -- who is currently still employed even after his $75,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation -- Rivera was axed when he made a mere $200 political contribution back in 1985. Appearing on Fridays edition of FNCs Fox and Friends, Rivera told the cast I was fired by ABC News in 1985...the official reason given for my being fired in 1985 was a $200 donation I made to a non-partisan mayoral campaign. Rivera did add that he was in a very contentious relationship with...

    It sure was a productive Tuesday for Ed Schultz at his federal trial where he’s being sued for breach of partnership. He managed to make a huge liar out of both himself and MSNBC President Phil Griffin.Schultz’s bid to convince jurors that he got his MSNBC show without any help from NBC sound engineer and producer Michael Queen proved rather deceitful thanks to his own electronic footprints.Worse yet, the behemoth broadcaster’s ongoing attempt to turn the courtroom into his own little TV studio may have faltered when he walked into plaintiff attorney Catfish Abbott’s trap.More evidence also emerged about just...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) The Vatican officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty finalized Wednesday, immediately sparking Israeli ire and accusations that the move hurt peace prospects. The treaty, which concerns the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestinian territory, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine. The Vatican had welcomed the decision by the U.N. General Assembly in 2012 to recognize a Palestinian state. But the treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state and...

WESH reported: The shooting involving Zimmerman and another man happened on Lake Mary Boulevard about 12:45 p.m., police said. According to Bracknell, officers at the scene reported Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound.

    RUSH: There are rolling themes on this program. There are umbrella items under which fall a number of, oh, stories and sub-ideas, sub-topics, if you will. One of the themes of this program for its duration since we started, and actually predating this program going back to when I was in Sacramento, has been that the American left and the Democrat Party are engaged in an escalating -- and it has been escalating year after year after year -- attack on the institutions and traditions that have defined and made American greatness. Not just political institutions, but social institutions and...

    Freddie Gray family lawyer William Murphy CNN reports that attorneys for the six Baltimore police officers charged by Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby in the death of Freddie Gray have filed a lengthy motion in Baltimore City District Court to have Mosby removed from the case–either by her recusal or by court order.The motion–which I have not yet seen, but hope to soon–purportedly sets out at least five conflicts of interest as the basis for recusal, including: Both Mosby and her husband, a Baltimore City Council member, are positioned for personal financial and political gain from the case.Mosby has existing personal relationships...
