  • That's a 'Renewable Energy' Job? If You Say So

    Capitol Confidential ^ | 8/26/2015 | Tom Gantert
    The statewide news site MLive recently published a column by the owner of a solar panel installation company claiming the state’s renewable energy sector has produced an estimated 82,600 jobs. Dean Berden, owner of DB Solar in Snover, wrote: “In recent years, Michigan's renewable sector has already seen tremendous growth, with more than an estimated 82,600 jobs in renewable power industries, energy efficiency and other conservation services.” The column links to a report called, “Powering Up Michigan," and attributes the 82,600 jobs number to a 2010 Bureau of Labor and Statistics report. ForTheRecord says: That particular Bureau of Labor Statistics...

    Semis and school buses. What could go wrong? I don’t even really know what to say about this. Is it insane? Yes. Is it further evidence that this country isn’t really interested in dealing with the threat of homegrown radical Islam? Yes. Is it a painfully obvious recipe for disaster? You bet. However, according to FOX 9 Minneapolis, it’s also the truth. A man whose name appears on the no-fly list thanks to his efforts to radicalize young people has been given a Class-A commercial driver’s license. That allows him to drive large semi-trucks that he can fill with whatever...

    A tale of two countries, one spurred to greatness by manifest destiny, the other crumbling under the weight of liberal anarchism The Kurds are surging in Iraq again. Kurdish fighters are successfully attacking both the Islamic state and other terrorist factions in Syria and Iraq; as we saw with the Kurdish capture of many Iraqi villages two days ago. The recent Kurdish push in Iraq occurs in spite of Turkey’s President Erdogan and his counterproductive air campaign against Kurdish fighters. To make matters worse Kurdish hopes for autonomy rights in Iranian held areas will more or less cease to be...

    Immigration is THE issue for 2016 Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern California—whose membership is in the tens of thousands—is illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...

    Have Republicans Grown Tired of Supporting the Rule of Law? by MONA CHAREN August 28, 2015 Among a very long list of harms inflicted upon the United States by Barack Obama and his party, perhaps the worst was Caesarism. Obama relished the worship of millions in 2008. From his star turn at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, he was treated not as a political candidate but as a savior. Progressives fell into a swoon, typified by Newsweek editor Evan Thomas’s 2008 comment that “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above — above the world, he’s sort...

    Mandates have consequences, bro The argument has been ever-present, where ObamaCare is concerned, that mandating generous benefits while forbidding insurers from considering factors like pre-existing conditions, could only result in one thing: Sky-high, jacked up premiums for everyone. It’s simple economics. You can’t artificially heighten demand by forcing everyone to buy, while also mandating a gold standard in coverage, and not see prices soar. But Barack Obama thinks the regulatory state can do what the stone-cold laws of the market cannot. So when insurers earlier this year began submitting their rate increase requests to state regulators - and the numbers...

Whatever that means in Clinton-speak. Hillary claimed previously that she was taking responsibility for the Benghazi fiasco in 2012 that left four Americans dead. Nothing happened to her. We still don’t even have an official cause of death for Ambassador Chris Stevens who was initially reported to have been ritualistically...

    We now know that Vester Flanagan was a sort of mirror image of Dylann Roof: black instead of white, gay instead of straight, but like Roof a nut with a cause. Like Roof, Flanagan’s cause was race. Flanagan was race-obsessed and, like Roof, wanted to incite a race war. I agree with Hugh Hewitt that it is a mistake to pay attention to “manifestos” left behind by insane killers. It only encourages them. But if we are going to take seriously the ideology of lunatics, it must be a two-way street. Dylann Roof’s racist ideology was taken very seriously,...

Her request was a response to videos by a pro-life organization using undercover style reporting revealing Planned Parenthood officials discussing selling the body parts of aborted babies on the black market. She intended that the audit of California’s Planned Parenthood locations would ensure the organization is not illegally profiting from the donation of aborted baby tissue.

As liberals complain that people are going hungry and the first lady transforms the school lunch fare to “healthy” offerings nobody seems to like, the federal government is spending plenty on “domestic food assistance to provide food for the hungry and other vulnerable populations in this country.” According to the Congressional Research Service, there are many agencies that offer food assistance to the needy in this country, citizens, non-citizens,...

    Anchor Babies, Common Law, The Constitution, Eliminate birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants Once again, Donald Trump has managed to open up a robust national discussion about an issue that up to this point had been largely ignored by the political class. This time, the discussion is about so-called “birthright citizenship,” the idea that whenever a foreign national (regardless of legal status and with a very few exceptions) has a child on American soil, this child automatically becomes an American citizen from birth. This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to...

That’s the implication, and it’s hardly new. They dropped...

More civilian gun ownership in a given area, more dead police. Study authors David Sewedler and David Hemenway would later admit that perhaps this homicide rate was actually driven by criminals. The “criminal offender theory” draws the not-so-remarkable conclusion that police who have frequent encounters with violent criminals are more likely to be injured or killed. Not all that surprising a proposition, is it? Of course, gun hating members of the media...

Boston just reinstated its “Your Piece for Peace” gun buyback program this past Wednesday, despite the fact that the tally this year has amounted to—wait for it—one single firearm. That’s a massive undercut from 2014’s intake of 410 guns. “There’s no question why the total number is down: The gun buyback’s numbers clearly aren’t on the same level as the guns taken a year ago,” police spokesman Officer James Kenneally said. According to him, though, the program's lack of success isn’t enough to shut it down: “As...

    An Alabama cop put in the hospital by a black felon admits he choked because he didn't want to be called racist A white police officer in the South who was recently beaten bloody and unconscious by a black suspect now admits he failed to defend himself properly because he was afraid if he used force he would have been accused of racism. This is poignant testimony to the tremendous damage that the racist Black Lives Matter movement has inflicted on the American psyche. Nowadays police all over the country are increasingly reluctant, or in some cases outright unwilling, to...
  • Ted Cruz is just another smarmy politician

    I've always liked Ted Cruz, he is the Republican who I agree with most on the issues.  He's free market, pro-life and for a measured foreign policy (less aggressive than Marco Rubio but more aggressive than Rand Paul).  Most importantly, he would stick to his ideals despite pressure from the establishment.  He may have made some tactical errors because of that but I couldn't help but admire him for his idealism.  He has been the candidate that I would have voted for if I didn't care at all about electability.  Unfortunately, his interview last night with Megyn Kelly unmasked him...

    The astounding female injury rates that are being hidden from the public -- and women in the military Last week, 1st Lt. Shaye Haver, 25, and Capt. Kristen Griest, 26, became the first women to earn their Ranger Tabs, graduating from the U.S. Army’s Ranger School at Fort Benning, GA. Maj. Gen. Scott Miller, the guest speaker at the graduation ceremony, emphasized that both women were held to the same standards as their male counterparts, insisting “a 5-mile run is still a 5-mile run. Standards do not change. A 12-mile march is still a 12-mile march.” True enough. But as...

    Don’t any of the presidential primary candidates go picking on Kelly because it’s bad for your presidency Thin-skinned journalists of the latter day are getting to be just like Democrat politicians, insult them and they’ll soon demand an apology. “On Tuesday, Fox News chief Roger Ailes said in a statement Donald Trump should apologize for a tirade of tweets aimed at Fox News host Megyn Kelly. (Fox News, Aug. 25, 2015) “Donald Trump’s surprise and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing. Megyn Kelly represents the very best of American...

    In the past couple of weeks, ever since the Fox News GOP debates (yes, plural, there was the "kiddie table" debate with Perry, Fiorina, and Jindal, among others), there is one name on the GOP side who has dominated not only the airwaves, but most of the time and efforts of the punditocracy. Donald Trump. He arouses wild excitement, and withering contempt; he is an object both of fear and of hope; and his support, like his opposition, comes from all demographic groups, many different political backgrounds, and is not limited to any one state or geographic region. He is,...
  • Reparations? How about ~7 trillion?

    Housing, education and job training, and other anti-poverty programs have cost some $22 trillion since Lyndon Johnson proclaimed the War on Poverty (WoP) some 50 years ago. Blacks made up some 40% of those living in poverty at the start of the program and now make up some 30% – though that figure may be misleading due to the increasing number of Hispanics living in poverty. In public housing alone, blacks constitute nearly 50% of the occupants. Forty-eight percent of public housing households are black compared to only 19 percent of all renter households.6 Taking income into account does not...

    "Tell the lab it's coming! So they don't open the box and go, 'Oh God!'" This one doesn’t have quite the smoking gun as some of the others. There isn’t even anyone from Planned Parenthood in the video. But what we do see in this interview with StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer is an unmistakable attitude, and if you have a heart at all it should trouble you. Watch the whole nine-minute video. You’ll hear about how StemExpress is looking for another 50 livers a week, which means someone needs to start aborting more fetuses, dammit. You’ll also hear that Planned...

    Not a smidgen. To date, we’ve been aware of two email accounts used by disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner. The first was her official government account and the second was a personal home account. Both have produced materials salient to the ongoing investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups….And they’re about to be joined by yet another address. HTML5 video is not supported! According to IRS attorney Geoffrey J, Klimas, Lerner a third email account has been uncovered from which Lerner was conducting official IRS business. As the Washington Times reports:

    The Congressional and historic record make clear that the legal concept of birthright citizenship, used by countless aliens to gain U.S. citizenship through anchor babies, is both wrong and unconstitutional. “The United States have not recognized a double allegiance. By our law a citizen is bound to be ‘true and faithful’ alone to our government.” – House Report No. 784, June 22, 1874 With the 2016 election heating up, many Americans are finding the opportunity to express anger over the nation’s illegal immigration problems. Donald Trump, a long-shot as a presidential candidate (having never held public office), shot to the...

    Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing may be an attempt to create balanced living patterns. Rather than remove discrimination, AFFH leverages it to codify oppression Local rule died in America on July 8, 2015. With it passes the rights of rural and suburban communities to decide their own futures. The trigger was the final 377-page ruling from HUD called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing[ia] that attempts to remove discrimination and achieve balanced and integrated living patterns. As one blogger beams, “What could possibly be wrong with helping low-income families to move into better neighborhoods?” In this case, everything. AFFH is reminiscent of the...
