    Stop the insanity! Days after Donald Trump stunned the world by winning the presidency, liberal America remains in the throes of a massive mental and emotional meltdown. Anti-Trump protests have spread to more cities and continue to turn violent. In Portland Thursday night, rioters stoned police and vandalized businesses and cars. Anyone expressing support for Trump has become the target of unrestrained venom: There are calls to boycott New Balance — its sneakers have been publicly burned — because an official said Trump would be better on trade issues. Meanwhile, the CEO of Grubhub, the online food-delivery service, demanded that...

    For the fourth straight night, anti-Trump protesters took to the streets of downtown Portland, and for the second straight night the protest turned into a melee. The protest began as a peaceful rally at City Hall at 5 p.m. before protesters split into what appeared to be three groups at around 7 p.m. There were at least 1,000 protesters and police said there were reports of vandalism and assault. Several people have been arrested. One group, organized by Portland's Resistance, stayed at the rally in City Hall. Despite pleas from police earlier in the day, some protesters began marching on...

Transcript, via MSNBC: (snip) MADDOW: "..... People are very, very upset. And I keep hearing, you can't move to Canada, you can't go into your shell, you can't be despondent, you have to fight.

    Its not so easy being a member of the 1 percent if you live at Trump Tower. Residents of the sleek Fifth Avenue skyscraper where Trump lives in the penthouse, based his TV show The Apprentice and launched his candidacy are having a hard time getting in and out of the building thanks to crowds of supporters, protesters and security. They cant get into their own homes without being stopped and frisked and having to show ID, said a top broker who is already fielding calls from residents planning to move out.

    Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump abruptly canceled his scheduled speech at CPAC Saturday morning as his campaign announced an appearance in Wichita, Kansas the day of that states caucus. Likely factoring into Trumps decision was a planned protest walkout during his speech at CPAC and the need to have a campaign presence in Kansas. The organizer of the walkout, William Temple, who parades around CPAC in colonial garb, told BizPacReview he expected one thousand CPAC attendees to participate in the Trump walkout. Temple organized a similar walkout last year during Jeb Bushs speech at CPAC that drew around 300...

    Property magnate Donald Trump shared a strange Twitter image on Thursday in order to mock his top primary rival, Sen. Ted Cruz....Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, retweeted someone who had altered the cover of Cruz's book, "A Time for Truth," so that the Texas senator looked as if he were balding. The altered book's title: "A Time To Lie."Text beneath the title echoed a number of Trump's recent campaign-trail attacks against Cruz: "I am an untrustworthy person, I took loans from Wall Street and lied about it.

Looks like @tedcruz is getting ready to attack. I am leading by so much he must. I hope so, he will fall like all others.

A summary of the article is provided by IMRA (Independent Media Review & Analysis): Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today [January 26] that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections. One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including...

    Rivlin is in New York to address the official Holocaust commemorations of the United Nations. His schedule includes meetings with African-American leaders and others. According to unsourced Israeli media reports, the White House invited Rivlin to a summit meeting with Obama in Washington. Israeli media outlets, including Channel 10 and the Ynet news site, have suggested the White House invitation was meant to embarrass Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was not invited to meet with Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry during his stay in Washington to address both houses of Congress in early March. Netanyahu was invited to...

Issa's allegations about what the White House knew about the IRS targeting conservatives rattled Democrats into sending out a barrage of counter claims. Former senior Obama aide David Plouffe ripped Issa in a Twitter message, referring to allegations from as far back as 1972 when Issa was still a teenager. "Strong words from Mr Grand Theft Auto and suspected arsonist/insurance swindler. And loose ethically today," Plouffe tweeted. Plouffe's...

Politico reports on the exchange: House Speaker John Boehner couldnt hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday. It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a dictatorship in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal. Go f yourself, Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present. Reid, a bit startled,...

    If one child complains that he didn't get as much food as his brother because his frankfurter was cut into four pieces, while his brother's hot dog was cut into five pieces, we laugh. What we often don't realize is that the definitions of "fairness" that adults use are often every bit as arbitrary as those of children. This is why politicians are so in love with the word "fairness." Using that word justifies their attempt to swoop in, ignore merit, overrule the market, and take something from one group of people to give it to another group of people...

It probably didnt surprise the Pew staff to learn that a partisan knowledge gap existed between Democrats and Republicans. But it surely horrified them to realize that the gap favored Republicans. On fully ten of twelve News IQ Quiz questions asked, Republicans demonstrated deeper basic knowledge than Democrats, with respondents tied on one question and Democrats leading on only one of the twelve. In other words, the hard survey data confirms what anyone familiar with socio-economic issues...

Activists on have urged every Democratic blogger to post identical entries after the movie airs, all featuring the film's title, so that any Internet search for the movie will turn up a liberal blog highlighting what they say are multiple inaccuracies in the film. If the plan works, bloggers say they'll be prepared to utilize the technique "at every turn" between now and November.

    So, Bill Clinton got it wrong as usual, by making a smarmy plea for a truce of civility from his Little Rock library redoubt. The Iraq debate does not need to become less rude or less intense. It needs to become much more bitter and much more polarized. As I never tire of saying, heat is not the antithesis of light but rather the source of it. No, the problem with the Iraq confrontation, as fought "at home," is not its level of anger but its level of argument. After almost three years of combat, the standard of debate ought...

    We've all done it. You've just gotten home, logged on to FR, and are scrolling down the "Latest Posts" page, deciding which thread will get your attention this evening, when THAT SCREENNAME jumps out at you in a "to" or "from" position. You are powerless to resist; if THAT GUY's there, it's gonna be a good thread... All of us have our own "favorites" among the many colorful souls who congregate at this fine website. They could be someone you disagree totally with, agree completely with, or somewhere in between. They might be a fount of useful information, links, and...

    In the absence of intellectual arguments, liberals in the media and in politics have increasingly reverted to name calling. When I was a boy, school children would inevitably begin calling each other names when frustrated or angry. "You're stupid," one would shout. "You're dumb," came the reply. "Well, well, you're so ugly your mother doesn't even love you." "She does tooand you don't even have a mother." As tempers flared, the kids searched for even more hurtful names, eventually stumbling into the aura of World War II which had engulfed the globe. "You're Hitler," was the "baddest" insult one could...
  • Liberals and Other Juvenile Delinquents - (study of libs by noted criminalogist!)

    As a Criminology Professor, I take every opportunity to attempt to attach one theory of crime causation or another to current events. There are numerous, and often repetitive, theoretical models intended to help us understand and explain criminality. Some of these focus on personality and upbringing. Others look at social conditions and neighbourhood deterioration. Still, others attempt to link criminality to the evils of capitalism (the dinosaurs may be extinct but theres a whole breed of belly-dragging Criminologist that refuses to make its way to the tar pits). Thats what living in your moms basement till youre thirty-five will do...

    Liberal college students have once again illustrated their never-ending quest for tolerance and their vast ability to think critically about ideas in opposition to their own. Yes, Im talking about yet another pie-throwing incident involving a conservative speaker on a college campus. The latest chapter in this pathetic story took place at Butler University on Wednesday, April 6. Conservative activist and President of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture David Horowitz was early in his lecture at Butler when he was struck with a pie. Theres a wave of violence on college campuses, committed by what Id call...

    TROUBLE SPEAK Ward Churchill copied 'original' art piece Takes a swing at TV reporter who confronted him -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: February 26, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern 2005 Professor Ward Churchill Adding to a growing list of allegations, controversial University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill appears to have violated copyright law by claiming a reknowned artist's work as his own. Churchill, whose integrity has been challenged since news broke earlier last month of his paper blaming victims of 9-11 for the attacks, made an Indian-theme serigraph in 1981 called "Winter Attack" and printed 150 copies. But one of the buyers,...
