  • Ivy League colleges are turning into ruthless PC prisons

    NY Post ^ | 12/5/16 | Kyle Smith
    At both Harvard and Columbia this fall we’ve seen how students who dare to privately act out against PC standards are inspiring crazed nuclear strikes from campus administrators. This disproportionate punishment is, in turn, bound to create both more rebels flouting norms and more wusses and tattletales passive-aggressively seizing power by parading their phony wounds.

    A year ago, the House of the 131st Ohio General Assembly voted to pass HB 48.  It passed the House 68 to 29. It has been languishing there ever since.   House Bill 48 is the prominent gun law reform bill pending in Ohio.  It is a modest bill that makes only a few reforms.  It removes silly prohibitions on permit holders from carrying concealed guns in day care centers, in the unsecured areas of airports, and other "gun free zones".   It passed the House by over 2-1 (68-29) on 17 November,  and has 42 cosponsors in the...

    The Spectrum ^ | December 5, 2016 | Maddy Fowler
    My experience protesting the election result at Trump Tower in New York City When I finally gathered enough emotional strength to watch Hillary Clinton’s concession speech, I sobbed the whole way through. One line in particular resonated with me: “Please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.” I wrote that sentence in my journal over and over again and hung the page above my desk. Even though the unimaginable had happened, I refused to accept defeat. I refused to let Clinton down. In that moment, I promised myself that no matter how hopeless things may seem...

    Sunday, December 04, 2016 5 Lessons for Republicans from Trump's Win Posted by Daniel Greenfield What can Republicans learn from Trump’s victory? The biggest lesson is that the old way of politics is dead. McCain and Romney showed that twice. Now Trump has shown how Republicans can actually win. 1. Find Your Natural Base The GOP is ashamed of its base. It doesn’t like being associated with the very voters who made 2016 happen. Its autopsy last time around searched for ways to leave the white working class behind. There’s a party that did that. Their symbol is a jackass....

  • Green Party Sad They Have To Pay For a Recount Pennsylvania

    12/05/2016 9:34:11 AM PST · by tekrat · 34 replies
    Whats going on in Pennsylvania is that there is a certain margin of votes that have to be reached before a recount is triggered. Pennsylvania has not hit that level. So for there to be a recount the Green Party would have to put up a $1,000,000 dollars bond for the labor in the event the election results do not change for the winning candidate. The Green Party does not want to put up the money. So they're filing a federal lawsuit to try to force a recount for free.  Even though it cost them to file the suit. In...

    Four years of pain. As I’ve pointed out before, the Democrats didn’t just lose an election in November. Their defeat wasn’t as simple as one presidential race. As I wrote on Election Day, this one was for all the marbles. Generations of liberal progressive ideology - both past and future - were on the 2016 ballot. Had Democrats won, they would have owned the Supreme Court and the concept of the United States as a constitutionally-limited republic would have been decimated. Instead, the left was roundly rejected.

The Wisconsin recount is not exactly yielding the results the Hillary campaign was hoping for when they hid in the corner and sent errand girl Jill Stein to go complain to the lunch room monitor.

DOJ deputy press secretary David Jacobs cast the issue as “not yet ripe enough.” “From what we have heard these electors have been called names and warned they could be harmed if they don’t switch their vote to Secretary Clinton,” Jacobs recounted. “Name calling is protected freedom of speech.

    Things work differently now.

So here comes the new president, not following convention because he has little use for it. The political class, which despises this man and refuses to accept that there could possibly be anything wrong with the way they’ve always done things, reacts to the new president’s every eschewing of convention by proclaiming: He’s so stupid!

    Under the presidency of Barack Obama, border patrol agents have been diverted from their duty of securing the borders from border violators, gangs, and cartels that traffic in drugs and even human beings. U.S. border patrol agents have, instead, become uniformed baby sitters. That’s according to Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan who came to U.S. Customs and Border Protection after a 30-year miltary career that included FBI operations in Iraq and leading the agency’s global command for anti-terrorism and border security operations. In a testimony to the Senate Homeland Security Committee he gave lawmakers the disturbing details on what’s going...

When Dad learned that several thousand fellow Americans had been killed in Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, he knew what he had to do. Leaving behind a wife and baby son (me), he joined the Navy. Two men would play key roles in those years during which my father served. One was Isoroku Yamamoto, Admiral of the Japanese fleet that pounced on the unaware and unprepared Americans at Pearl Harbor.

    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...

As usual this is a matter of expediency, desperation to get their own way given the results of the election, and the usual public deception for how our system actually works. There certainly isn’t a shred of principle involved. So let’s investigate this a bit. We are a Republic, thank God, not a Democracy, so the popular vote is irrelevant to presidential elections.

    Elections have consequences. The presidential election of Donald Trump has been occupying most of the news space. The gun culture did very well in state and local elections.  In Missouri, a Republican, Eric Greitens, replaces former Governor Nixon.  Governor Nixon was decidedly anti-Second Amendment.  An omnibus gun law reform bill was passed over his veto in Missouri last year. That bill included permitless or "Consititutional" carry. Originally the bill contained a watered down provision for the exercise of Second Amendment rights at public institutions of higher learning. Current Missouri law allows campus administrations to ban weapons on campus.  All...

    The Marine Corps is considering suppressing all small arms. Military organizations have historically been slow to adopt new technologies. They have been slow to adopt optical sights, which were overwhelmingly adopted by sportsmen long before they become common for ordinary soldiers. In the U.S. that was during the first Gulf War. Suppressors have been commonly used by sportsmen around the world for decades long before widespread adoption by any military. The United States is the exception, due to irrational regulation. The Marine Corp is in the process of equipping an entire battalion with suppressed small arms. From ameriforce.net: In...

    December 3, 2016 Petraeus for Secretary of State Is a Bad Call By Rob Caskey In the parade of prospective cabinet picks making their way to the penthouse of Trump Tower to meet with the president-elect, few have come with more pedigree or more (figurative) baggage than General David Petraeus. Tipped for the position of secretary of state, the retired four-star general is considered to bring with him a wealth of experience garnered from nearly 15 years in the higher echelons of the U.S. Army, including time spent at the helm of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as...

    Two questions. One: Who initiated the call? And two: Did he understand the significance of what he was doing when it happened? Not sure about the answer to the first question. I’ve got a guess about the second. Donald Trump risks opening up a major diplomatic dispute with China before he has even been inaugurated after speaking on the phone on Friday with Tsai Ying-wen, the president of Taiwan. Trump’s spokesman also confirmed that the call happened. The U.S. maintains unofficial relations with Taiwan but hasn’t conducted official diplomacy since the end of Carter’s administration, as a concession to maintaining...

    Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) has joined with Sen. John McCain (R-Az) to modify the recently passed Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act (JASTA). This law allows victims of terrorist attacks to sue the governments that provide funding and sanctuary to terrorists. Graham is concerned that "the existing law can come back to bite us. When Congress overrode President Obama's veto they were thinking 'let's make these Muslim governments pay for the damages done by the groups they harbor.' What was overlooked was the possibility that our own government would be made liable for damage done by terrorists armed by the...

    Reports of your heated exchange with President-Elect Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway at the Harvard post-election forum have been rampaging through the mainstream and alternate media like a five alarm fire for the last 24 hours. Apparently, during the forum, you accused Mr. Trump and Ms. Conway of ‘providing a platform for white supremacists’ during the election. I seriously doubt that the 62.6 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump were all white supremacists. But, that’s how liberals operate. Anyone that doesn’t agree with your warped, Eurocrap vision for America is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe or...

    The incoming Trump administration is being advised to train 100,000 hackers. The new president should also make an effort to develop international norms for hacking, essentially drawing red lines to avoid cyber warfare or even armed conflict. President Obama's special Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity released its long-awaited report Friday night. In it, the panel outlines a challenging to-do list that makes clear cybersecurity is a top national priority. Computer hacking is now commonplace and more dangerous than ever....

    I shall continue to cherish, relish, enjoy, celebrate the death and passing of worthless brute, Fidel Castro It was about 1:00 a.m., Saturday night, when my wife woke me up to tell me of the passing of Fidel Castro. As I was still half-sleep, and in lieu of the fact that, in our wishful ways, we, the Cuban-Americans in exile, had killed Castro many times over in the past, the “Cry Wolf” syndrome kicked-in as a ‘defense mechanism’ to spare me the emotional roller coaster, which had made us, time and time again, go from exhilarating highs to lugubrious downs...

    President-elect Trump continues to drag out the process of selecting someone to nominate for Secretary of State. Whether it’s all part of an effort to humiliate Mitt Romney for his insubordination during the primary or just a difficult decision to make is anyone’s guess. Ambassador John Bolton is considered by many to be the best choice to head up and reform the State Department.Fox News’ Bret Baier reported that Ambassador Bolton met with Vice President-elect Mike Pence yesterday in Washington to discuss the Secretary of State job and will meet with Trump tomorrow at Trump Tower in New York.
