    Federal Reserve vice chair Stanley Fischer is resigning from his post at the central bank effective in mid-October, the Fed announced Wednesday. Fischer cited “personal reasons” in his resignation letter to President Donald Trump. Fischer’s term as vice chair was slated to end on June 12, 2018. “It has been a great privilege to serve on the Federal Reserve Board and, most especially, to work alongside Chair [Janet] Yellen as well as many other dedicated and talented men and women throughout the Federal Reserve System,” Fischer wrote.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) are pushing for an amendment to the Constitution to place term limits on lawmakers, arguing the move will help overhaul Washington. "The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people," Cruz said in a statement on Tuesday. "It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.” Under an amendment the two GOP lawmakers filed on Tuesday, House members would be allowed...

    IRAN is facing an "international conspiracy" to over throw the Khomeinist re gime with a "velvet revolution," the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) claimed yesterday. The latest mascot of the plotters is supposed to be Roxana Saberi, a former Miss North Dakota now charged with espionage in Tehran. A US citizen with an Iranian father and a Japanese mother, the 31-year-old Roxana has worked in Iran on and off for years as a freelance reporter. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for Saberi's immediate release and safe return to the US. IRNA claims that the plot was first...
  • Racist Texas Dem Calls Republicans “Gringos Y Otros Pendejos”(Not Translatable in Polite Company)

    The racist Texas State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer said “GOP” stands for “gringos y otros pendejos” or “white and other *holes” at the State Democratic Convention in Dallas this weekend. This delightful man doubled down on the comments, saying he would tell the Republican Gubernatorial nominee directly what he said to the Democratic audience. “I stand by my words. I did not know Greg Abbott was at the convention to hear me, and if I had known that I would told him directly to his face.” Abbott’s wife is Mexican American, by the way. So what would happen if a...

    Joy Pullman entitles her excellent column on The Federalist this way: "Discrimination Is Healthy And Normal – Sex Confusion Is Not." She begins her piece by pointing out how the left has hijacked a perfectly good word and twisted its meaning: "Discrimination sounds so terrible. Shouldn't people with power stop it in every form? That sounds plausible, but like the other arguments offered by LGBTQ activists (when they offer arguments instead of appeals to emotion), it's wrong and hurtful." She goes on to point out that "non-discrimination" ordinances, which sound so constructive at first blush, are actually "anti-science, anti-reason, and...
  • Homosexuals were persecuted in Nazi Germany - by other homosexuals

    Winger-left blowhard Ed Schultz got a mention on Drudge today, for sending out a Tweet that said, "Gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler's Germany." While 10,000-15,000 homosexuals were likely to have died at Hitler's hands (which is 10,000-15,000 too many), Schultz blithely and blindly ignores the plain historical fact that that number pales in comparison to the six million Jews who were gassed or shot by Hitler's goons. What Schultz overlooks, perhaps out of sheer historical ignorance, is that the persecution of homosexuals in Hitler's Germany was carried out by other homosexuals. Hitler was seeking to...

    A new campaign-trail pledge to vote against any immigration increases took center stage in the Nebraska GOP Senate primary race on Friday, when candidate Shane Osborne slammed his rival for not signing the pledge and also charged him with deception. “Nebraskans are learning that Ben Sasse isn’t the candidate he’s pretending to be [and] on the most important issues of the day, from Immigration to ObamaCare, Sasse is no conservative,” said a statement from the campaign, only four days before voting begins on Tuesday.

    Renew America ^ | 24Aug13 | Bryan Fischer
    Russia, as the world is now aware, recently passed a law that prohibits homosexual propaganda that is targeted at teens. Russia does not want teenagers persuaded that manifestly unnatural and unhealthy behavior is perfectly normal. Good on them. And while sodomy has been legal in Russia since 1993, the new law makes it illegal among teens. Good on them. There are legal sanctions for violating this law, which has raised the hackles of Olympic athletes who want to be out, proud and in your face everywhere, including during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. What should we make of this...

    One News Now ^ | 5Sept13 | Bryan Fischer
    For moral, ethical and biblical reasons, the United States should not drop bombs on Syria. To cross Syria’s boundary, a country which has not attacked us, is to show a profound lack of respect for its national sovereignty. Had Syria attacked us, we would of course have the moral right to use whatever military force is necessary to neutralize the threat to our own sovereignty. But absent the moral justification of self-defense, we have no right to be there. The Scriptures are clear that the boundaries of the world’s nations are established by God (Acts 17:26), and those boundaries should...

    America's daughters should not be sent into combat. Period. Part of the reason is philosophical: we want to live in a nation where we expect men to use their strength to protect the women in their world, not the other way round. But there are immensely practical reasons as well. God simply did not design women to have the same size, upper body strength, or stamina as men. It's just plain stupid to ignore this biological fact of nature. The Washington Post, for instance, recently ran a story on the "throwing gap" between men and women, which has stubbornly persisted...

    In the past few days, questions have been swirling on Bob Kerrey's (Dem NE Senate Candidate) claims that he's only 3 pts behind his opponent, State Senator Deb Fischer (Rep). His pollster, Pharos has been cited for numerous "red flags". ================================================= (snip) Pharos claims to have conducted five polls this month alone, all of them showing the race increasingly tight. While Republican Deb Fischer’s U.S. Senate campaign has disputed this, Pharos’ results were close to that of the Omaha World-Herald’s recent poll calling it a 3-point race. The Daily Kos saw red flags, such as Pharos reporting results to the...

    LINCOLN, NE - Bob Kerrey sure has a lot to say about grazing land these days, but history (and the New York Times) tells us Mr. Kerrey is far more interested in cattle. During his previous term in the US Senate, Bob Kerrey continued to buy and sell cattle futures contracts for six months after taking a seat on the Senate Agriculture Committee. Some called this a clear conflict of interest. Some called his behavior ethically questionable. Others called it a case of Kerrey "playing fast and loose" with the rules. Today, we call it insider trading. And if character...

    Deb Fischer continues to hold a commanding lead in the race for U.S. Senate. Our Tuesday through Thursday track showed Fischer ahead of Bob Kerrey by a 16-point margin (55% Fischer–39% Kerrey). She also has a solid edge among committed voters. 46% of likely voters say they are definitely voting for Fischer compared to 32% definitely voting for Kerrey.

    Ranchers and farmers in Nebraska aren't responding too kindly to Democrat Bob Kerrey's lastest smear tactics against Republican Deb Fischer. With the campaign in the final stretch, Fischer still enjoys a double-digit lead while Kerrey throws mud with the hope that something sticks. The Nebraska Farm Bureau reports on Kerrey's latest smear and that of local ranchers and farmers coming to Fischer's defense.
