    The Baltimore County Board of Education on Tuesday voted 6-5 against closing schools for two Muslim holidays when they fall on school days. According to the Baltimore Sun, the Muslim community had advocated for more than a decade to close Baltimore schools on the Islamic holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. The vote followed a heated discussion among school board members as dozens of Muslims waited in the audience. The results of the vote prompted shouts of “Injustice!” by some in attendance, and the board had to call a five-minute recess before continuing. …

    The nation is a proverbial derriere hair away from the deluded, twisted, hell on earth world of a Hillary Clinton Presidency. Make no mistake about it. Hillary Clinton isn’t just another Democrat, a political rival of Republicans. She is a lying criminal who exhibits sociopathic traits. Hillary Clinton is a dangerous, reckless narcissist who believes the world owes her the Presidency and who bows to globalist policies and operatives like the demonic, George Soros. Let us hope that the nightmare scenario below never develops: Donald Trump rallies in the polls the last 75 days of the election. He and Hillary...

    Hillary feigns outrage, but everything about this has Democrat fingerprints on it Just like earlier this year with Martin Shkreli and Daraprim, the Internet is full of outrage the past few days over the action of Mylan CEO Heather Fausch to raise the price of the live-saving drug EpiPen to $500 per unit. And as always happens, politicians are getting into the act, particularly Hillary Clinton, who raged that Mylan must reduce the price immediately - as if pharmaceutical companies check with candidates for political office in setting their pricing. But if Hillary really wants to manifest her rage -...

It amounts to a loud “how dare you!” based on the assumption that the Clinton Foundation actually does good things. “What the Clinton Foundation does, it takes money from rich people and gives it to poor people,” Politico reported the Ragin’ Cajun saying on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show.

Nothing about the Olympics really interests me, including this. But it does interest me when people who merely tell the truth about things find themselves taking heat for doing so - and that is now happening to NBC’s Al Roker because he went so far as to express his indignation over Lochte’s false story of what happened to him in Brazil. According to a report out today, Today Show staffers are beside themselves,...

A blockbuster of disgrace and dishonor. Is Ms. Schultz currently working for the Clinton campaign? Did she get that job promised by Hillary? Is Hillary Clinton ashamed and embarrassed for continuing to associate with this level of historic public corruption? So where...

"If you want change, you better get your walking boots on." "Anything is possible if enough decent people want to fight the establishment," Farage said. Farage also took a shot at President Barack Obama for campaigning against Brexit....

    The Ann Arbor City Council last week voted for an ordinance that will ban the sale of tobacco products to people under 21, making it the first city in Michigan to raise the legal purchasing age from 18. The Council voted 9-2 on Aug. 4 for an ordinance sponsored by Council Member Julie Grand, a Democrat representing the city’s 3rd Ward. Ann Arbor officials were explicit about their lack of concern with whether the ordinance conflicts with state law, and that they hope the rest of the state follows the city’s lead.

They claim voter fraud is “virtually non-existent,” buying votes is too difficult and too “legally risky to pull off,” tampering with voting machines is a misnomer because they are often backed up by paper ballots or other means of auditing (except for the 2000 election between George Bush and Al Gore, which Democrats still insist was stolen from Gore).

    For at least two decades, nuclear engineers have been talking about new reactor designs, but few have progressed to become important components of the industry. Naturally, as with any new technology, there are always boosters and their enthusiasm should be treated with caution, but there is definitely potential for advances that could mean a surge in nuclear power. One aspect that needs greater attention is the benefit of smaller reactors, which greatly reduce risk on the part of investors. Some new designs are more incrementally advanced, such as the European Pressurized Reactor (EPR) developed by Areva and EDF in France,...

Paradoxically, the survey also shows that those who are convinced that there is no solid evidence of global warming is at its lowest level (15%) in the nine-year history of the poll.

When someone is said to be taking a “hardline” position, people are constantly after them to “soften” said position, which sounds so much nicer and more reasonable. So we keep hearing that Donald Trump is taking a “hardline” position on immigration, that being the determination to deport all 11 million (or 12 million, or whatever it is) illegal immigrations who are...

    The Mackinac Center’s mission is premised on the notion that free markets and free people make for a more prosperous and flourishing society. So it’s no surprise that we find Michigan’s alcohol control regime problematic, because it is designed to unjustly enrich a few beer and wine wholesalers at the expense of consumers everywhere. Indeed, parts of the state liquor code read as if it were written specifically for the benefit of wholesaler business interests. Along with laws laid down by the Legislature, rules from the Michigan Liquor Control Commission protect insiders, resulting in crony capitalism at its worst. This...

    A Wayne State University professor who blamed the Flint water crisis on “structural racism” and a decline in state revenue sharing based his assertions in part on an incorrect estimate from an outdated revenue projection. Audited financial reports from the state of Michigan and city of Flint showing actual revenue collections contradict the professor’s source. Law professor Peter Hammer released a report claiming that state revenue sharing payments to Flint declined from $20 million in 2006 to $7.9 million in 2012. But both city and state financial statements indicate this statement was inaccurate and that Hammer’s overall report understated Flint’s...

    It is time to recognize that devious bureaucrats and out of control federal agencies are the real enemies of economic mobility (In a bold move, HUD partnered with the Departments of Transportation and Education to create a massive alteration in the way children experience school. The program is designed to help low-income families grow financially. Instead, it accomplishes something much different.) HUD is the ‘gold’ standard of dangerously unchecked bureaucracies. Dangerous because the agency’s zealous moves already threaten property owners’ choices and undermine the authority of local public officials.

    Strong evidence of Hillary and Huma's pay-to-play conspiracy emerges in new email dump Embattled Hillary Clinton enforcer Huma Abedin gave foreign leaders and activists special access to Clinton when she was secretary of state after they donated to the congenitally corrupt Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, according to newly released emails. It is yet more evidence that in the event Hillary becomes president her administration will be at least as venal and crooked as her husband Bill’s was. Bill sold nights in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House while he was president but Hillary has been selling her...

    In a federal filing last Thursday, Obama’s Justice Department said that defendants can't be held in jail simply because they cannot afford bail. The Department argued that the practice was a violation of the 14th Amendment. Author and attorney Publius Huldah disagrees. "How Bail works in our Criminal Justice System and why it’s Important" By Publius Huldah “Holding defendants in jail because they can't afford to make bail is unconstitutional, the Justice Department said in a court filing late Thursday…” “It's the latest step by the Obama administration in encouraging state courts to move away from imposing fixed cash bail...
  • God-given Rights, Man-made Anti-rights, and why “Safety Nets” are Immoral

    It is the dogma of our time that proponents of government “safety net” programs hold the so-called moral high ground. Accordingly, progressives preen over their own “compassion;” and many who pretend to be conservatives chime in that they too “believe in safety net programs.” But safety net programs are unconstitutional and immoral. They are unconstitutional because “charity” is not one of the enumerated powers of the federal government.1 They are immoral because they are based on a fabricated system of man-made anti-rights which negate the Natural Rights God gave us. I. The Origin of Rights and the Purpose of Civil...

    Writing for Wonkette, Rebecca Schoenkopf expressed her opinion that Bill Clinton probably did rape Juanita Broaddrick back in 1978, but that this doesn't necessarily make him an "evil person." "Let's look at the facts of that particular case," Schoenkopf argued. "First, Bill showed he cared by advising Juanita to put some ice on her lip that he bit. Second, he called her later to apologize. This is a level of concern that most rapists don't show. Third, while there has been a string of alleged improprieties involving indecent exposure, molestation, and sexual indiscretions since then there haven't been anymore rapes."...

    Gov. Rick Snyder has issued an executive order that some economic experts fear repeats a mistake made by the previous administration — trying to plan the state’s long-term economic future. While the executive order aims for long-term goals, they caution that officials have been unable to foresee much more immediate events about which they had a good deal of information. The executive order was filed in June with the Secretary of State and calls for a commission to recommend a “comprehensive economic vision” for Michigan for the next 20 years. The order asks for “long-term economic development tools” and strategies...

    Corrupt Hillary Clinton--who would do anything to be able to call herself ‘president‘ even as Obama’s 3rd term-- already is America’s 45h president without a single vote ever having been cast for her (Editor’s Note: The truth can be depressing) Brace yourself, America. Brace yourself Free West. Coming down the pike at you is President Barack Obama for a third straight term under the guise of the ‘Pantsuit President’.

  • Is traditional polling going the way of the corner bowling alley?

    Many of us can remember when small towns and even big city neighborhoods almost always included a bowling alley a dry cleaner a drive-in movie and more recently a travel agency. Finding these establishments today is a tall order. The latest evidence regarding traditional political “horse race” polls suggests that this phenomenon might be degrading them as well. Last October, in a burst of honesty, the Gallup Company which is granddaddy of polling firms decided it had had enough. It could no longer overcome the duel barriers of widespread cell phone use and resistance to answering pollsters’ questions. Consequently, Gallup...

    How America's Polygamy Ban Blocked Muslim Immigration A hundred years ago, Muslims were furious over an immigration bill whose origins lay with advocacy by a headstrong and loudmouthed Republican in the White House. The anti-immigration bill offended the Ottoman Empire, the rotting Caliphate of Islam soon to be defeated at the hands of America and the West, by banning the entry of “all polygamists, or persons who admit their belief in the practice of polygamy.” This, as was pointed out at the time, would prohibit the entry of the “entire Mohammedan world” into the United States. And indeed it would....

    Tucker Carlson, host and journalist for FOX News said, “If Trump loses, it’s going to be a new America.” No truer statement could be said about America’s fate in the 21st century. If Hillary Clinton wins, she promises to bring in 100,000 more Syrian Muslim refugees if not more during her four-year term. She promises total amnesty for 20 to 30 million illegal aliens. She stands with Muslims like Khizr Khan who openly advocates for Sharia Law being implemented into America to supplant U.S. Constitutional law. Hillary Clinton works for open borders to create an even greater flow of all...

    The FBI uncovered nearly 15,000 more emails and materials sent to or from Hillary Clinton as part of the agency's investigation into her use of private email at the State Department. The documents were not among the 30,000 work-related emails turned over to the State Department by her attorneys in December 2014. The State Department confirmed it has received "tens of thousands" of personal and work-related email materials — including the 14,900 emails found by the FBI — that it will review. The number of emails provided by the FBI to the State Department for review is much higher than...
