    My sister shared a video link with me. My reply to her grew into another of my goofy rants! J, I saw that O'Reilly segment when it aired! Powerful and essentially correct. I've commented numerous times that the left is NOT going to go quietly. They MAY go with the bang of a second civil war that will make the 700,000+ dead of the first one look tame! But they have a problem: WE HAVE DAMN NEAR ALL THE GUNS AND KNOW HOW TO USE THEM. If it does go down, it will NOT go well for them. Thank God...

    94-year-old WWII veteran beaten during SW Side robbery; suspect crashed stolen SUV By Evelyn Holmes Thursday, December 08, 2016 CHICAGO (WLS) -- Police are looking for a man who allegedly beat a 94-year-old woman, stole her purse and took off in a stolen vehicle before crashing it in Chicago's Garfield Ridge neighborhood. The victim's daughter, Judy Dusk, said her mother, Josephine Regnier, is a World War II Navy veteran. Dusk said she was waiting for one of her daughters outside her building in the 5100-block of South Long Avenue to pick her up to go to the dentist when she...

    Has Ronald Reagan passed the Republican Party baton to Donald Trump? I suggested as much a few days ago, critics objected that I was blaspheming the Gipper. They said his ideas of limited government, individual freedom, lower taxes and peace through strength will live on forever. Amen to that. Yes, Reagan's ideals should always be the guiding light of the GOP. Radio talk show host Mark Levin, reminded his listeners that Reagan won two landslide elections, while Trump so far has won one narrow victory. Levin says that Reagan was a real conservative, and Trump isnÂ’t, "Shame on you, Stephen...

    Many times we accuse our political opponents of crimes of which we ourselves are equally guilty. Neither the left nor the right has a monopoly on dishonesty, hypocrisy, or hyperbole. But there is at least one unpleasant trait that seems to reside almost exclusively in the hearts of leftists: a puling hysterical weakness in the face of setbacks and defeat. I think President Barack Obama is the worst president of my lifetime: an incompetent ideologue who made the world and the country worse. The economy is not as bad as it was directly after the crash, but it is much,...

And they will not drown out the voice of the American people when I’m president of the United States,” Obama told a crowd...... in 2008.

    Washington Post ^ | December 7, 2016 | David Bernstein
    The presidential election was so close that many factors were “but-for” causes of Donald Trump’s victory. One that’s been mostly overlooked is Trump’s surprising success with religious voters. According to exit polls, Trump received 81 percent of the white evangelical Christian vote, and Hillary Clinton only 16 percent. Trump did significantly better than the overtly religious Mitt Romney and the overtly evangelical George W. Bush. He likely over-performed among other theologically conservative voters, such as traditionalist Catholics, as well. Not bad for a thrice-married adulterer of no discernible faith.

Stein–who is attempting to launch election recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin to contest Donald Trump’s victory–first explained the indicators that people looked for when a machine is suspected of being tampered with or having an error. “So the indicators that they look for if they want to see a machine error or a foul play or tampering, you look for a couple of indicators,” she said. “So one is close...

Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said at a Wednesday press conference in Washington. “We want you to use that same pardon power for hundreds of thousands of young people who came forward because you asked them to come forward.

    Following President-elect Trump's surprise phone call on Friday with the Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, the response has been predictable if not disheartening. Academics in D.C. this morning are claiming that, “Trump…doesn’t have clue.” An expert at the University of California added that the call was “impulsive.” Regrettably, my Democratic Party pushed back too. By its measure, Trump demonstrated his “incompetence” and threatened our national security. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) went so far as to say that Trump’s actions might push the nation into war with China. What academics and my party don’t understand is that he’s not interested in starting...

That was simply the latest manifestation of the “prayerful” and “peaceful” protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The gangs keep shooting, the survivors mourn, police morale is down, anti-police sentiment is up and the mayor says some cops have gone fetal. And the politicians do nothing in the bloody city. Street gang violence in Chicago is as bad, if not worse, than the record-setting death years of the 1990s. But there is no penalty for Democratic politicians who sit back in the Democratic city and do nothing...

Driven to apoplexy by Donald Trump’s victory despite Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote, some Democrats want to split the United States up. At a forum yesterday, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) bemoaned the existence of the accursed Electoral College, that brilliant constitutional device that prevents angry mobs in densely populated states from picking the president of the United States on their own. But the way things are set up, there is no way to get the Constitution amended to abolish the Electoral College, she sighed.

    The approximately 65 million Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton should pledge that in the future if a Republican wins the presidency with fewer votes than a Democrat for the third time in our era, we won’t pay taxes to the federal government. No taxation without representation! Twice in the past 16 years, a Republican candidate who finished second in the popular vote has won the presidency. This year, Donald Trump won the electoral vote with about 46% of the popular vote, while Hillary Clinton received about 48%. If the parties stay this evenly divided, another electoral mishap is more...

Trump and shun the presumptive next President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Given the polling, predicting a Clinton victory was not ridiculous. If one trusting nothing but the polling data, a Clinton electoral college win seemed like a pretty safe bet. But Americans defied expectations at the polls, and Trump won several “blue” states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Overall, Trump carried 3084 counties and Clinton won just...

    With the dust now settled from the election, Democrats are looking to rebuild the political “blue wall” of traditionally Democratic upper Midwest and Great Lakes states that Republican Donald Trump captured with an appeal to white, working-class voters. Hillary Clinton’s failure to hold key blocs of these voters helped seal Trump’s stunning electoral victory and leaves Democrats with a gaping, perhaps long-term, hole in the party’s national battle front. Trump boasted of his accomplishment at a post-election rally in Ohio. The president-elect crowed: “We didn’t break it; we shattered that sucker. We shattered it, man. That poor wall is busted...

    I have a friend who is very intelligent and talented. However when it comes to politics he is a diehard Democrat who IMO doesn't seem to look at the whole picture. He likes to refer to Republicans as "Reds". Well judge for yourself as here is something he wrote today.   "Reds are upside down on every question. Affordable healthcare is bad, Russia is good, our allies not so much. Cutting taxes and over spending on unnecessary military equipment is a good idea. Civil rights are bad. Reducing the population by 10 percent is a good idea. Launching multiple Trade...

    What Are California Democrats So Afraid Of? Calling for enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws struck a nerve with certain California politicians. In response to my column, “Mayors of Sanctuary Cities Who Flaunt Federal Law Should Be Arrested,” the former press secretary for recently termed-out California Senate President Darrell Steinberg, sent an email to the publisher of the Flash Report website, expressing his disdain that I called for upholding federal immigration law, and arresting those Mayors who flaunt their Sanctuary Cities in the face of the law:

    The following are a few basic historical facts that every American should know. Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed in 1865 with 100% Republican support but only 23% Democrat support in congress. Why is this indisputable fact so rarely mentioned? PBS documentaries about slavery and the Civil War barely mention it, for example. One can certainly argue that the parties have changed in 150 years (more about that below), but that does not...

    WND Exclusive Only 4 states can stop vote fraud 'No systematic oversight of the system' exists The raging debate about voter fraud has been hijacked by the left, says a leading expert on the issue, and the left is driving the narrative in a false direction using slick deception. The question is: What will President-elect Donald Trump do about it? When people think about “voter fraud,” they tend to think about the dead voting, people voting in multiple precincts or party machines paying homeless people to cast ballots. While those are all legitimate concerns, the mass fraud happens long before...

    Democrats are no longer the party of the working class, but the party of radical progressives, illegal aliens and special interests. In the aftermath of another devastating electoral loss, Democrats have not learned their lessons very well. In the U.S. Senate, Democrats elected 66-year old Chuck Schumer of New York as their Minority Leader, replacing the outgoing Harry Reid of Nevada. Schumer will offer more East Coast liberal leadership to a party that desperately needs to move ideologically to the center and geographically to the country’s heartland. In an even worse move, House Democrats re-elected super liberal Nancy Pelosi of...

    New Yorkers don't want Melania Trump in the city. Almost 100,000 people signed a petition requesting that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio refuse to pay close to $1 million per day to protect President-elect Donald Trump's wife, The Independent reported. "The New York taxpayers refuse to pay over $1 million a day so she can stay," they said. "If this decision has been made, between the two of them they should be the ones to pay for it. Not New York taxpayer dollars that could be used on roads, schools, transit, sanitation, new jobs and...

    When asked by two CNN shills who she thought should be the next Chair of the DNC, democrat statagist, and former Bernie Sanders spokeswoman, Symone Sanders said 'we don't need white people leading the democrats now.' Instead, she felt someone of a darker persuasion should lead them, in order to best represent 'diversity.' Apparently, diversity doesn't include all races -- just the ones that aren't white -- according to Symone. [Video of statement in Article] If you recall, Symone mocked the Trump supporter that was viciously beaten by thugs -- saying 'oh my god poor white people,' when asked about...

    During a shouting matching Thursday night between top aides of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the President-elect’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway summed up a key reason for why my Democratic Party lost – and will likely continue to lose. “There’s a difference for voters between what offends you and what affects you.” To understand what she meant, look to the recent developments in Indiana. Millions of voters in the Rust Belt are in awe as 1,100 of their fellow blue-collar workers at Carrier narrowly missed being laid off. Instead of training Mexican replacements, these Hoosiers are celebrating an American paycheck....

    The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced new workplace regulations requiring employers to accommodate the languages spoken by prospective hires and current employees or “face sanctions including fines and/or revocation of permission to operate.” Oddly, the EEOC cited “the growing diversity of the nation’s workforce as the justification for the new rule.” Under the new regulations requiring employees to speak or understand English is now deemed unlawful discrimination. “Employees have the right to communicate in a language of their own choosing,” EEOC Chairperson Jenny Yang argued. “It is the employer’s responsibility to learn the language of his employees or hire...
