  • America needs morality of the 'Mockingjay'

    Rocking the box office this weekend is a film likely to be one of the year’s biggest hits, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” the third in a four-part series of movies based on the popular “Hunger Games” novels by Suzanne Collins. And tucked inside this more dramatic and human sequel in the movie series is a lesson on morality that America needs to learn if it’s to successfully confront the crises of immigration, violent jihad, race riots and more.

    Obama’s Immigration Amnesty: Joy for Some and Sadness for Many By Julio Severo Obama announced yesterday, November 20, 2014, a major amnesty benefiting millions of illegal immigrants. Obama is not doing it for kindness. It is similar to “bolsa-família,” a populist family-fund program from the Brazilian government that provides cash to millions of Brazilians. In fact, the government of President Barack Obama thinks that this Brazilian program is very important. Many of those benefited by Obama’s amnesty are also Brazilians, who are fleeing from the leftist hell in Brazil, but by being aided by Obama, they are also aiding...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The fate of a little-noticed ballot measure in strongly Democratic Oregon serves as a warning to President Barack Obama and his party about the political perils of immigration policy. Even as Oregon voters were legalizing recreational marijuana and expanding Democratic majorities in state government, they decided by a margin of 66-34 to cancel a new state law that would have provided driver's licenses to people who are in the United States illegally. Obama is considering acting on his own, as early as this week, to possibly shield from deportation up to 5 million immigrants now living...

    A devastating blow has been dealt to Democrats’ plans to capitalize on the growing Hispanic population of the United States, playing on immigration concerns to create a solid voting bloc even larger than that of African-Americans. From an altitude of 30,000 feet, ethnic politics seem so simple and basic, but on the ground, in places like New Mexico’s Second Congressional District along the southern border, things get a bit more complicated.

    What happens when you combine establishment credentials with a true believer. The next week will involve a lot of talking about the “wide open” contest for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, about the strong field, about whether the strong field is irretrievably damaged, about how there isn’t a clear frontrunner. This isn’t true. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz — the true outsider, the tribune of the grassroots, the ruthless lawyer — is the clear frontrunner for the Republican nomination. This is not trolling. This is serious. Conservatives vote in Republican primaries. And Cruz is really good at talking to conservatives. Even...

The Survation poll for the Unite trade union gave Ukip candidate Mark Reckless a 15-point lead over his former party. The lead has widened by six points since an identical poll last month, and suggests that a huge Tory effort to hold the seat is failing to gain traction. The poll puts support for Ukip on 48 per cent, with the Conservatives on 33, Labour, who came second in 2010, on 16 per cent, the Greens on two percent...

    Whenever one looks at the demographics of the population of America, and how it is changing, it always looks very daunting for conservatives. I agree. But I'd like to suggest a strategic solution that is very viable. The Hispanic demographic is ripe for a conservative takeover. The Hispanic population is a largely-Christian and very religious demographic. They are hard-working, very family-oriented, and tend to be moral. There are, of course, exceptions that disprove this rule, but I am speaking of the big-picture Hispanic population. They tend to have fled from countries that embrace socialism and police-state tactics on the part...

    Every national poll by every recognized polling organization shows that conservatives dramatically outnumber liberals in America. For a covertly leftist establishment media, complete with organs of subtle propaganda and selective misinformation, the best strategy for handling the uncomfortable fact of a conservative majority in America is to hide or at least contort it. Treating conservatives like a despised minority is the very heart of leftist demonology. The left purports to represent America and claims vast powers because it is the champion of ordinary people. Terms like “radical right wing” and “extreme conservative” are the essence of leftist rhetoric. It is...

    For the past several weeks, a group calling itself the "NRSC" has been inundating my inbox, warning that Obama was about to "grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants." I could combat this by donating money to ensure the Republicans win control of the Senate. Apparently, this "NRSC" is the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a pillar of the same GOP establishment that previously spent that past year and a half trying to pass amnesty under the guise of "comprehensive immigration reform." I must have a new email filter that turns even Republicans in Washington into conservatives. In the months following...

    “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak never pictured himself as a game show host — and neither he nor the show’s creator, Merv Griffin, thought the show would last very long — but Griffin took a chance when he hired the little-known local weatherman to replace Chuck Woolery as host in 1981, and America responded by taking to “The Wheel” like few other game shows in history. When he hasn’t been manning a big, multicolored wheel and awarding contestants millions of dollars in cash and prizes, Sajak has spent the last three decades giving other things a spin. He hosted...

    In an interview with ABC News, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, predicted his party would reclaim the Democratic-controlled Senate in November, but he declined to endorse current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as the party leader should there be a transfer of power in the upper chamber of Congress.. . . . .But when asked if he would endorse McConnell — currently embroiled in a tight race for his Kentucky Senate seat — as Senate majority leader, the Texas Republican said that is a decision that would be made “when the time is right.”“Well, that will be a decision for...

    The IRS's internal auditor distorted the facts surrounding the IRS tea party targeting scandal, leaving Americans with the impression that the tax agency went after conservative groups without also targeting liberal groups, the Senate's top investigative panel said Friday. Investigators said the IRS did mishandle applications for tax exempt status, including subjecting groups to years-long delays and "poorly coordinated reviews." But the report, written by Democrats who control the chamber, concluded that the IRS's "mismanagement" affected both liberal and conservative groups, clearing the agency of accusations of politically motivated behavior. "The subcommittee found no evidence that political bias influences the...

    There are many liberals who view conservatives as bad selfish stupid people and many conservatives who have a similar view of liberals Bad motivations can come into play but since there are also good people on both sides of the political spectrum I will start by addressing the differing assumptions that leads good people to differ. There are two opposing ways to approach making the world a better place. One way is to focus on promoting freedom and individual rights. The other is to promote benevolent control for the benefit of the group. Although there are exceptions to the rule,...

    There is a new form of cyberbullying out there and it is scary, because it could derail the professional career of any conservative - even those working in apolitical jobs. Slimy folks like “Busta Troll” are hijacking Facebook pages of conservatives, replacing the content with goats and anti-conservative messages. Some believe a goat is used because it is a Satanic symbol; many of the conservatives are targeted because of their Christian or Jewish views. The conservative Citizens’ Post page on Facebook was hijacked by the “Goatz Alliance,” which also goes by the name “Busta Troll,” by pretending to be from...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, told a crowd of 3,000 at a conservative summit in Dallas that Americans fighting with Islamic State militants should be exiled from the country saying, “we need to not let into this country any American who is fighting with ISIS.” But some conservative politicians say that banishing American jihadists doesn’t go far enough, and that those who leave the country to fight for militant groups like the Islamic State, Hamas, or al Qaeda should be stripped of their citizenship. On Friday, former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who is running for a U.S. Senate seat in...

    In 1948, the argument for the creation of Israel was a moral argument; the argument against the creation of Israel was based on an assessment of America’s national interest. Almost seventy years later Israel is an economic and military powerhouse, with a rapidly growing population, while her traditional enemies are weaker than ever. At the present time, most of those who argue against the continued existence of Israel attempt to base their arguments on moral grounds. Still, a small and noisy group of conservatives contend that our support for Israel undermines our standing in the region, and threatens our national...
