  • If No Democrat Senate Candidate, I'll Vote for Roberts

    Lawrence Journal world ^ | September 23, 2014 | Reasonmclucus
    I had been looking forward to the opportunity to vote for an Independent candidate for U.S. Senate. I often vote for "third party" candidates because the two 19th Century major parties are out of touch with reality. For example, I voted for Ross Perot in 1992 and Ralph Nader in 2000. Chad Taylor's withdrawal as the Democrat's Senate candidate provides strong evidence that Sen. Pat Roberts is probably correct when he says Greg Orman is really just a Democrat masquerading as an Independent. Chad Taylor apparently filed for the Senate nomination to keep serious Democrats from running for the office....

    Tragic tale of frontier nation's abandonment of firearms and freedom ___ SYDNEY, Australia -- In the country that has some of the most restrictive firearms legislation in the world, law-abiding citizens must obtain police permission before purchasing a gun and subject themselves to public ridicule, surprise searches without warrants, arbitrary confiscation and burdensome government regulations. It's a fate that could befall America, some warn, if citizens willingly surrender their firearms -- and with those guns, an entire nation's hard-won freedom.

    Some refer to them as “shadow government” — the pseudo-government associations and authorities that run in conjunction with traditional forms of government. The U.S. Census Bureau defines them as “Special District Governments” and reports that they are growing at a fast rate. From 2002 to 2012, special district governments in Michigan have jumped 33 percent from 332 to 443. Some special district governments are well publicized. For years, the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority — whose board members are appointed by the city council —has sparred with the City of Ann Arbor over how to spend millions in parking revenue....

    In his appearances this weekend on BBC and on CNN's State of the Union, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair stressed the need to deploy ground troops in the West's military campaign to drive ISIS (or ISIL if you prefer) from Iraq and/or Syria. Blair was adamant that air strikes alone could not defeat the ISIS insurgents, "You certainly need to fight groups like ISIS on the ground." These words will not be received well by those of the political left, who have adopted a drive-by mentality to war over the past few decades, deluding themselves into believing airstrikes alone...

It’s starting to look like a movie about what the future will be under Islamist law; but the problem is “the future” is already here for the Brits. Over a period of 16 YEARS, British authorities–including the toothless police–stood by and did nothing about a “grooming and raping” ring preying on young White British girls and boys who simply disappeared.

    Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rep. Mike Michaud (Maine) says he is opposed to the idea of curtailing the eligibility for welfare payments to illegal immigrants. “These people have undertaken a long, arduous, and often dangerous journey to get here,” Michaud said. “That took courage and determination. Welfare payments are a meager reward for enduring these treks. It would be niggardly of us to deny them after they’ve crossed the finish line.” Under Maine law, illegal immigrants are not eligible for state funded welfare payments. Nonetheless, several cities have defied the law and paid out public funds to them. Portland disburses over...

    If Obama will lie in the face of the Ukrainian President at a White House meeting, why should we believe he is committed to the survival of Israel? The “Reagan Doctrine” was supporting freedom fighters around the world and rolling back the Soviet empire. The “Obama Doctrine” is pretending to fight foreign threats while sounding or looking tough, but actually doing nothing of substance to turn back aggression. Even the liberal Washington Post sees the dangers ahead. “For the sake of the cameras, President Obama assured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a White House meeting Thursday that ‘not only do...

He'd been out there for about 10 minutes when Roy's doorbell rang. She opened it to find her son —and a woman she didn't know. As Roy wrote on her blog HaikuMama last week, the mystery woman asked: "Is this your son?" I nodded, still trying to figure out what was happening. "He said this was his house. I brought him home."

They are no more moderates than a dog’s tail is a leg regardless of what they are called in Washington. People on the ground, those who are not constrained by cowardice, have a different view of the FSA. The “Friends...

It made the commitment because it wanted to be part of a partnership with the United States that would also provide security in its own backyard. These days Poland won’t be sending 2,500 men to Iraq. It needs its soldiers back home now that Putin is on the rampage and Obama has shown that he can’t and won’t stop him. The same goes for...

    Mullah Obama, Secretary of State Hanoi Kerry and defense stooge Hegel have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to ISIL. Insisting that they will not allow boots on the ground is not only pure political posturing on the part of America’s fearless triumvirate, it’s just plain stupid. They are hoping that cowardly Iraqi security forces and the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels will be America’s proxy army in the fight against fellow Muslims. Obama ordered the CIA train and arm these so-called moderate Muslims and thus was born ISIS. What in the world are these over-educated political...

    (snip) “…America isn’t the party we belong to — we’re not born Democrats or Republicans. America is the values we share: hard work and responsibility, and sacrifice, and looking out for one another.” He called one brand of politics “mean and nasty and polarizing” and another sense of the word “having a common vision for the future.” Obama asked the Democrats to “choose hope,” because “hope is what gave soldiers courage to storm a beach.” The president also touched on foreign policy, stressing that with all of the challenges “America remains the one indispensable nation in the world.” “Even the...

    The U.S. is planning to train veterans to become solar panel installers in the next six years, the White House said Thursday. The jobs training program is among a host of initiatives the White House says will cut carbon dioxide emissions by more than 300 million tons through 2030, plus save billions of dollars on energy bills for homeowners and businesses. It will launch this fall at one or more military bases and train a total of at least 50,000, including veterans....

  • Rand Paul Pandering on Voter ID Laws Counterproductive

    Throughout his career, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) has built upon his reputation as an independent maverick who is willing to buck party leadership or dogma to advance his goals for America. For conservatives dubious of the feckless GOP beltway bunch, this has been a refreshing change and helped the Kentucky Senator establish himself as a true contender for the 2016 Presidential nomination. While this trait is without doubt a positive one, Rand Paul's criticism of Republican's efforts to establish voter ID laws in various states is the wrong issue to tackle and counterproductive to the overall goals of increasing genuine...
  • ObamaCare architect Ezekiel Emanuel has anounced the ‘optimal age of death’ - you won’t like it

    Old people are such a burden. Democrats seem to love death. Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage. They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel. Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm. Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death...

    As we reflect on the historic vote in Scotland this week (all votes seem to be “historic” these days, don’t they? Might have more to do with news network ratings than actual history), we Americans find ourselves rather conflicted. On the one hand, we cheer for the idea of independence, a race memory of sorts that dates back to our own War for Independence over 230 years ago. We feel a special affinity for all members of the British Empire; we speak the same language, share the same customs, even enjoy many of the same television shows. Their heroes are...

    Before the referendum on Scottish independence and in order to keep the United Kingdom from disintegrating, the leaders of the three main British parties - David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband - made generous promises in return for the Scottish people to vote No to breaking away from the Union. They promised more powers and money for Scotland. Some say that these promises have come dangerously close to Maximum devolution (Devo Max for short), which means that, except in defence and foreign affairs, the Scottish Parliament gets power over everything. A source of concern is that these promises...
