  • UKs Labour secretly suspended 50 for anti-Semitic, racist comments

    The Times of Israel ^ | 5/2/16 | staff
    Britains Labour party has secretly suspended 50 of its members for anti-Semitic and racist comments, a UK paper said Monday. The report came as Labour chairman Jeremy Corbyn conceded for the first time Monday that the party does have a problem with anti-Jewish sentiment, but insisted that it is not a huge problem. A string of Labour politicians have been publicly suspended recently for making anti-Semitic remarks, among them former London mayor and close Corbyn ally Ken Livingstone, who said Thursday that Hitler supported Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing 6 million Jews. Livingstone, who has refused...

    As a 5th generation Republican and Lifelong Conservative the political events of recent years have been frustrating. None are more frustrating than this election cycle. We prayed and hoped for a real Conservative to counter the leftward pull of Obama. We wanted someone to pull the country to the right so we could possibly be, at least, center America, where we typically like to land in national politics. We have had several Conservative candidates this cycle, but many who have called themselves "Conservative" have coalesced behind a man who is the farthest thing from Conservative as is imaginable and why?...

    A shocking new survey has found that support for capitalism is dying in America. In fact, more than half of all adults in the United States under the age of 30 say that they do not support capitalism at this point. You might be tempted to dismiss them as “foolish young people”, but the truth is that they are the future of America. As older generations die off, they will eventually become the leaders of this country. And of course our nation has not resembled anything close to a capitalist society for quite some time now. In a recent article,...

April 27, 2016 Apparently, John Kasich and Ted Cruz are at their most appealing when no one is paying attention to them, which, conveniently, is most of the time.

But two seconds after people said, "OK, let's give this guy a try," he cratered. You might say a little of Ted Cruz goes a long way. Voters can't stand Cruz any more than his Senate...

    Suggesting that Bernie Sanders has been treated unfairly by the Democratic Party, Donald Trump on Tuesday said that the Vermont senator should abandon his run for the Democratic nomination and instead seek an independent path to the White House. "Bernie Sanders has been treated terribly by the Democrats both with delegates & otherwise," Trump tweeted. "He should show them, and run as an Independent!" Sanders and his campaign have indicated that the senator, who was still listed as an independent on his Senate website as early as this month, will continue to be a Democrat in future elections.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday that he will impose mandates on the commercial real estate sector to achieve dramatic greenhouse gas emissions among the city's building stock by far the city's biggest contributor to global warming. In an announcement tied to Earth Day, the mayor's office said the requirements, along with city programs and incentives, would help kickstart the mayor's goal of cutting building emissions dramatically over the next 35 years. The mandates are a significant development for the city's real estate world. When de Blasio announced a plan two years ago to cut building emissions, he threatened...

    Of his many outrageous campaign statements, perhaps Donald J. Trump's most important ones concern his hoped-for role as president of the United States. When told that uniformed personnel would disobey his unlawful order as president to torture prisoners and kill civilians, Trump menacingly replied "They won't refuse. They're not going to refuse, believe me." Responding to criticism by the speaker of the House, Trump spoke like a Mafia don: "Paul Ryan, I don't know him well, but I'm sure I'm going to get along great with him. And if I don't? He's gonna have to pay a big price." ......

Should The Donald fall short of the delegates needed to win on the first ballot, 1,237, there is growing certitude that he will be stopped.

    As president, Donald Trump would sell off $16 trillion worth of U.S. government assets in order to fulfill his pledge to eliminate the national debt in eight years, senior adviser with the campaign Barry Bennett said. "The United States government owns more real estate than anybody else, more land than anybody else, more energy than anybody else," Bennett told Chris Jansing Sunday on MSNBC. "We can get rid of government buildings we're not using, we can extract the energy from government lands, we can do all kinds of things to extract value from the assets that we hold." In a...

    Fox News.com ^ | March 29, 2016 | William La Jeunesse
    States are moving to once again require able-bodied adults to put in work hours in exchange for food stamps, after the requirements largely were suspended by the Obama administration. The slow-moving reversal follows the administration pulling back on Clinton-era changes that required recipients to work for government welfare benefits. Signing the reform bill in 1996 alongside then-Speaker Newt Gingrich, then-President Bill Clinton said the goal was to make welfare a second chance, not a way of life. But during the last recession, President Obama allowed states to suspend a requirement that able-bodied adults without children work at least 20 hours...

    Donald Trumps success in the primaries and his rhetoric have sparked troubled meditations about an awakening of fascist impulses among his supporters. Bret Stephens has drawn an analogy with the Thirties, the last dark age of Western politics, and compared Trump to Benito Mussolini. On the left, Dana Milbank, in a column titled Trump Flirts with Fascism, wrote about a campaign rally at which Trump was leading supporters in what looked very much like a fascist salute, a scene New York Times house-conservative David Brooks linked to the Nuremberg party rallies.

The Rhode Island senator then asked Lynch why the Obama administration has done nothing to civilly pursue energy companies in court. This matter has been discussed.

Much of the current conversation about Sanders's "democratic socialism" is predicated on whether Americans can look past this supposedly toxic label. But millennials love Sanders not despite his socialism, but because of it. "Socialism" has never been a dirty word for the current cohort of youth, who either didn't live through...

It also explains what is (and isn't) fascism, how they hobble their own economies, and the social warpage they create. Peter Drucker updated "The End of Economic Man" in the 1960s, seeing horrifying parallels between the 1960s activism and the 1930s.

    Islam is a religion, and like any other faith, it is internally diverse. Islamism, by contrast, is the desire to impose a single version of Islam on an entire society. Islamism is not Islam, but it is an offshoot of Islam. It is Muslim theocracy. In much the same way, jihad is a traditional Muslim idea connoting struggle—sometimes a personal spiritual struggle, sometimes a struggle against an external enemy. Jihadism, however, is something else entirely: It is the doctrine of using force to spread Islamism. President Barack Obama and many liberal-minded commentators have been hesitant to call this Islamist ideology...

    It's one thing to dump on Trump, as author Rick Perlstein did on today's With All Due Respect, calling The Donald a modern-day George Wallace, and floating "fascism" about him. But Perlstein took things a nasty step further, denigrating Trump supporters in the ugliest terms. Per Perlstein, Trump has unleashed forces in his supporters "that are more animalistic than human." Perlstein added that spectacle of the US losing to ISIS has filled Trump fans with "childlike, impotent rage." View the video here.
  • Should we profile Muslims?

    Whose religion commands its followers to kill infidels? Whose religion commands its followers to invade, conquer and dominate the earth? Whose religion commands its followers to terrorize its neighbors? Whose religion has a 1400 year history of invading, conquering and terrorizing neighboring countries? Whose religion is currently in the process of actually infiltrating, invading, terrorizing and conquering peaceful nations? If one readily identifiable group of barbaric aliens is dead set on infiltrating, invading, terrorizing, conquering and dominating your country, why the hell would you not profile them?

    CNN host Jake Tapper grilled Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich and asked him if he thought his attack web video against GOP rival Donald Trump seemed "desperate." Tapper asked Kasich about his recent video against Trump and that the video could be compared to a poem about the Nazis. "The Nazis killed 12 million people," Tapper said. "It seems a little extreme and perhaps even a lot desperate to compare Donald Trump to the Nazis."(continued)

    In the old Soviet Union, there was a class of citizen known as the Refusenik. In Russian, the word was отказник, pronounced 'otkaznik'. There were two definitions for this label: One, people who were not allowed to emigrate -- especially Russian Jews -- and two, people who willfully disobeyed laws as a form of protest. As America careens into a fascist state most reminiscent of the former Soviet Union, it will be necessary and useful to adopt the techniques of the oppressed citizenry of that empire. As free speech is squelched via 'hate speech' laws, we will need to adopt...

    Filmmaker Spike Lee sees parallels between GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. “He wants to close down the mosques now,” Lee said Monday in an interview with The Daily Beast, referring to Trump. “That’s like the Nazis,” Lee continued. "That’s Hitler, [Italian fascist leader Benito] Mussolini, the Axis powers. “You can’t do that,” he added. Trump is pushing for closer scrutiny of America’s Islamic communities following last month’s terrorist attacks in Paris. About 130 people died and more than 300 others were wounded during coordinated violence across the French capital on Nov. 13. Trump has responded...

    The American university is imploding in its self-refuting duplicity. Safe zones are anything but safe. People are bullied by those decrying bullying. Rather than celebrate liberty, liberals now demand conformity. Campuses have become bastions for speech codes rather than free speech. Students are more interested in “trigger warnings” than they are in research and learning. Disagreement is now synonymous with hate. Personal inclinations now equal personal identity. Progressives think they are right in telling conservatives they are wrong for thinking they’re right. If you dare to challenge the party line or the politically correct, you will be excluded in the...

    "The dirty little secret is that there has been a bipartisan project of corporatism, the economic underpinning of fascism, for almost a century." Five years ago, antiwar liberals calling the Bush administration fascist were labeled as kooks, marginalized by their own party leadership, accused by conservatives of treasonous thoughts worthy of federal punishment, even deportation. A few years pass, the policies hardly change, and the political dynamic turns upside down: tea-party conservatives accusing the Obama regime of fascist impulses are compared to terrorists, accused of being racists, told that their hyperbole is a real threat to the country's security. The...

    A student has been driven out of lectures and bars with shouts of ‘rapist’ after he dared to question the effectiveness of ‘consent workshops’. Second-year George Lawlor, 19, fears for his future at Warwick University after being ostracised and bullied for challenging a student union drive to hold rape awareness sessions. Writing in a blog, he argued that the overwhelming majority of people ‘don’t have to be taught to not be a rapist’ – and that men inclined to commit the crime would be unlikely to attend such a workshop.

    In what appears to be a first for a serious presidential contender, Hillary Clinton’s campaign is going after five comedians who made fun of the former Secretary of State in standup skits at a popular Hollywood comedy club. A video of the short performance, which is less than three minutes, is posted on the website of the renowned club, Laugh Factory, and the Clinton campaign has tried to censor it. Besides demanding that the video be taken down, the Clinton campaign has demanded the personal contact information of the performers that appear in the recording. This is no laughing matter...
