  • Why Hispanics Shouldn’t Vote for Hillary

    American Thinker ^ | October 22, 2016 | Michael Bargo, Jr.
    While polls show that more Hispanics prefer Hillary over Trump to occupy the White House those Hispanics need to take a close look at what Hillary’s party has done for -- and more importantly, to -- Hispanics in the U.S. The Hispanic population has grown so rapidly that it is difficult to believe that the 1970 Census questionnaire did not include a racial or ethnic category called “Hispanic.” But this was not because Hispanics did not live in the U.S. in significant numbers. The musical West Side Story from the 1950s featured several Puerto Rican main characters, and cities like...
  • Obama Blames ‘Far-Right Media’ for ‘Pumping Out All Kinds of Crazy Toxic Stuff’

    President Barack Obama is again complaining about conservative media, accusing it of creating candidate Donald Trump. “Trump didn’t come out of nowhere now,” Obama said during a campaign speech in Miami. “For years, Republican politicians and far-right media outlets had just been pumping out all kinds of toxic, crazy stuff.” Obama employed a straw man attack against conservative media, accusing them of starting “the whole birther thing” and calling climate change a “Chinese hoax.” “According to them, I’m powerful enough to cause these hurricanes, and I’m about to steal everybody’s guns in the middle of the night and declare martial...

    Many of you know that for more than 4 years, I have been one of the leaders of the team representing religious organizations, mostly Catholic (including Bishop David Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburgh’s Catholic Diocese) in his case which was consolidated in the U.S. Supreme Court with the case brought by The Little Sisters of the Poor and cases brought by others, against the government over Obamacare’s “contraception mandate.” A great number of religious groups of all denominations filed “friend of the Court” briefs supporting our position that while contraception is and could be available to all who choose to use...

    The Trump campaign has announced that the candidate will deliver a major speech in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, October 22. He will present his closing arguments for American voters, outlining the steps he will take in his first 100 days to make America great again. I hope it’s his best speech yet. For all his gaffes and misstatements, the fact is this: The race is not over until it’s over. (Even when he means it’s over.) So, as Trump heads into his Gettysburg address, I want to emphasize what he should replay from last week’s debate, and what...

    “Strengthening families” is big in Hillary Clinton’s immigration platform—not American families, but families of undocumented Democrats. To that end—and “within her first 100 days in office”—Hillary has vowed to “introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship.” These newly minted Democrats will be speedily naturalized (likely in time for Hillary’s second term). “All families” will be granted “affordable health care,” a privilege very many Americans are without. Yet another political grant of privilege Americans don’t have, unless pigmentally endowed, is affirmative action. The throngs of immigrants and refugees—whose entry into the US Mrs. Clinton will accelerate,...

In last night's game, Rizzo apologized to home plate umpire Angel Hernandez when he came up to bat in the seventh inning. Rizzo had disagreed with him on a prior call.

    In the early 70’s there was no internet. In those days a reporter had no cell phone. Typing on a computer was decades away. If somehow the letter E got in front of the word Mail it was simply a typo. The tools of the trade for an Investigative Journalist were pencils and paper, a typewriter, a little bribe money and sources inside the Halls of Power. When these tools were mixed with aggressive follow up, perseverance and old fashioned sweat of the brow it often led to the disclosures about war, spying, corruption and the men and women who...

    This past summer, Hillary Clinton made this stunning and chilling statement in an interview on CNN: "deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs have to be changed." She did not specify in that interview which faith's religious beliefs had "to be changed." But now, thanks to WikiLeaks-released emails from the John Podesta's server, we have the context and intent of this statement. Mrs. Clinton was specifically referring to the religious beliefs of the Catholic Church.  The Democratic Party is on record via Podesta exchanges that it would like to and is already working to sabotage the Catholic Church from within to...

    Robert Creamer, founder and partner of Democracy Partners, the group behind the organized violence at Trump rallies, as shown in the video by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, is no ordinary agitator. Creamer, a convicted felon, is arguably the spiritual godfather of ObamaCare and much of the current progressive left agenda. Creamer, along with his wife, Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky is no stranger to agitation, violence, and expanding the progressive agenda.

    The headline on the October 20 edition of the Washington Post blared, "Trump won't vow to honor results," referring to the election that the Post devoutly hopes will go to his opponent, the corrupt and criminal Hillary Clinton. The Post's exaggerated headline is only symptomatic of the hyperventilating on both sides of the aisle over Trump's refusal to commit to personally accepting a negative election result. The fact is, Trump's position is both quite logical and constitutionally inconsequential. Most obviously, Trump believes, with some good reason, that the election process as a whole is "rigged" against him (and by extension...

    An Iraqi refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool has had his conviction overturned because a court didn't prove he realised the boy was saying no. The rapist, identified as Amir A, 20, violently sexually assaulted the boy in the changing room of Theresienbad pool in Austria claiming it was a 'sexual emergency' because he had not had sex for four months. But an appeal court in the country accepted the defence lawyer's claim that the lower court had not done enough to prove he knew the schoolboy was saying no and overturned the conviction.

    For more than a year, two former Long Beach police officers have made it their mission to honor each and every law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in the Unites States by outfitting each member of the officers’ departments with personalized black “mourning bands” to be worn over their badges as a sign of respect to their departed colleagues. In a sight that’s become all too common in recent months, whenever a law enforcement officer falls in the line of duty, fellow officers traditionally don black mourning bands over their badges in tribute.

    Wisconsinite Christina Ferguson was arrested this week for accidentally smearing peanut butter on the windshields of 30 cars parked outside a meeting of a local environmental group. She thought the cars belonged to Donald Trump supporters. Ferguson first made her presence known by walking into the meeting and yelling about Trump while holding a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif,” according to the police report. After she was booted from the building, Ferguson went to the parking lot to do her damage. The police were called, and Ferguson denied everything, but she was eventually outed by the peanut butter...

It has become common for "fact-checking" groups to arbitrate what is true and what is false. But the "fact-checkers" themselves are often biased and do not always present the truth.  Such is the case with some "fact-checking" outlets Thursday claiming that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lied Wednesday night when he said Democratic rival Hillary Clinton supports unrestricted abortion throughout pregnancy. News outlet "attn:," in a report entitled...

    Some Facebook employees have argued that Donald Trump’s posts on the social network should be designated as hate speech and removed, according to a new report. The Wall Street Journal said today that Trump posts calling for a ban on Muslim immigration to the United States had triggered an emotional debate inside Facebook over enforcement of the company’s community standards. CEO Mark Zuckerberg ultimately ruled against deleting the posts, which he argued would amount to censorship of a political candidate, according to the Journal. The internal arguments started after Trump began discussing Muslim immigration last December, the report said. Zuckerberg’s...

    Now that the final debate is more fully in the rearview mirror, let's revisit the scandal Mrs. Clinton barely discussed in Las Vegas.  She'll hide behind the "does not recall" obfuscations she offered to Judicial Watch under oath, but let's consider the context and the source: This is just another lie from a compulsive liar, lying about her national security-endangering email scandal for which nobody has been held accountable -- to the reported chagrin of the career FBI agents and DOJ lawyers who worked the case.  Via the Washington Examiner, here we go again: Responding to a set of questions under oath last week,...
