  • When It Comes to Islam, Western Leaders Are Liars or Idiots

    When it comes to the connection between Islam and violence against non-Muslims, one fact must be embraced: the majority of those in positions of leadership and authority in the West are either liars or fools, or both. No other alternative exists. The reason for this uncharitable assertion is simple: If Islam was once a faraway, exotic religion, today we hear calls for, and see acts of, violence committed in its name—or the name of its deity “Allahu Akbar!”—practically every day. And many of us still have “ears that hear and eyes that see.” It’s no secret: Muslims from all around...

    During her July 25 speech at the Democrat National Convention, Michelle Obama talked about moving into the White House and watching “big men with guns” take their daughters to school. She said this by describing life after taking up residence in the White House. She recalled her daughters “setting off for their first day at their new school,” adding, “I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls–just seven and ten years old–pile into those black SUVs with all those big men with guns.” The audience responded with a warm applause as Mrs. Obama talked about seeing...

    The first day of the Democratic National Convention saw travelers by car, train, and bus delayed. Officials at transportation agencies said it was likely that traffic jams, bus detours, and unexpected disruptions would continue to be part of getting around Philadelphia until the donkeys leave town. The first troubles came on I-95 during the morning commute. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation had initially planned to keep all lanes open to passenger vehicles, but over the weekend found that truckers were not aware of a ban on vehicles weighing five tons or more and were still using the highway, said Eugene...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders will back Hillary Clinton in exchange for speaking opportunities at fall campaign rallies, a fully-funded campaign aircraft and a share of the credit for her hoped-for election, according to a negotiating memo obtained by BuzzFeed News and dated two days before the June 7 California primary. “Request a plane and staff for a series of fall rallies in battleground states … plane would be paid for by the DNC,” according the the Sanders memo, titled “End Game 2016” and addressed to “Bernie 2016.” The memo’s authenticity has not been confirmed by Breitbart News, but it has not...

    On July 19, the American people won the Republican Nomination to be president for Mr. Donald Trump over the objections of the Republican Party big shots, the ultra bias news media, and the never Trump crowd, as it has turned out being led by Ted Cruz. Now, following his rousing America First acceptance speech, the battle goes on to secure the presidency for Donald Trump and the people. The two sides in this continuing battle remain the same, Donald Trump and the people on one side against the same Trump haters and doubters, including Hillary Clinton and her Socialist followers...

    The DNC aided and abetted two illegal aliens on Monday night during the nationally televised DNC Convention 2016 in Philadelphia. Thus, according to the law, the DNC twice violated Section 8 U.S. Code 1324. At 8:04pm local time, the DNC invited an illegal alien to accompany her daughter to tout Hillary Clinton for president. During her speech, which was televised on national TV, the daughter explicitly said her mother is in the United States illegally. Minutes before the mother and daughter team took to the stage, the DNC played a video showing the daughter communicating with Hillary Clinton during one...

As documented earlier, Bernie Sanders supporters disrupted the first day of the Democratic convention, repeatedly chanting and booing mentions of Hillary Clinton's name as the party's hopes...

    Mississippi's state flag didn't last long on Broad Street in South Philadelphia. City workers on Monday removed the red, white, and blue banner - which has the Confederate flag in the top left corner - from a lighting standard near Passyunk Avenue after dozens of protesters and some local residents asked for it to be taken down, city officials said. It had been put up about two weeks ago among a collection of state flags on South Broad. It won't be put up again, said Brian Abernathy, a deputy managing director for the city, who said, "The Confederate flag raises...

    President Obama is standing by his decision to ramp up the admission of Syrian refugees to the United States even after three refugees from Islamic countries attacked people in Germany over the last week. The 10,000 Syrian refugees the president wants to admit by October are subjected to more thorough screening and vetting than anyone trying to enter the United States, White House spokesman Josh Earnest stressed Monday. "That's why the president has confidence ramping up the number of refugees admitted to the United States," Earnest told reporters during his daily briefing.

On Monday, the agency confirmed that it is investigating the release of thousands of e-mails that explicitly show tactics used to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the Democratic nomination. And once again, one of Clinton's counter-parts has suddenly resigned as a result of a tumultuous scandal. "The FBI is investigating a cyber intrusion involving the DNC and are working to determine the nature and scope of the matter," the agency said in a statement.

    This is REALLY interesting! The Hitlery camp is blaming Vladimir Putin of leaking the DNC emails which sent Debbie Wasserman Schultz into her current crash and burn. Hitlery Campaign Manager, Robby Mook, is claiming that Putin is leaking the emails in an effort to help Donald Trump win the election. Is that any worse than the DNC conspiring to screw Bernie Sanders out of the nomination? I think not, pardon my digression. Of course, Putin denies it, and the Trump campaign, in the person of Paul Manafort, labels the charge "absurd." But is it? There is no question that Putin...

Tim Kaine (D-Va.), as a devout, “Pope Francis Catholic,” whose faith is “central” to his work, Bishop Thomas J. Tobin said Kaine’s pro-choice position on abortion and support for gay marriage and women priests are views “clearly contrary to well-established Catholic teachings.” Bishop Tobin, head of the diocese of Providence, R.I., added that Kaine’s positions on those issues are also “opposed by Pope Francis.”

    To be clear, not every Sanders supporter feels that way. In fact, the vast majority of them tell pollsters they plan to vote for Clinton this fall. But there is without doubt a vocal group here in Philadelphia unwilling to roll over and play nice with the presumptive nominee — no matter what Sanders says they should do. That is an issue for Clinton — and for Sanders. A vocal minority in the context of, say, Sanders's speech to the convention tonight could be a major problem for party strategists doing everything they can to present a united front. Anything...

On the eve of the four-day convention to nominate the county’s first female presidential candidate, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned in disgrace over the hack of emails that showed DNC staffers favoring Clinton over her then rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile, throngs of Sanders supporters marched and pounded on drums, chanting “Hell no, DNC — we won’t vote for Hillary” in the...

    A week ago I felt good about America but no more. Coyotes are running freely in the streets of our big cities, the stock market is teetering on the verge of collapse, the monetary system will soon go belly-up, China and North Korea and Iran have a knife to our throats, our schools are in chaos, politicians corrupt, the media stupefied by political correctness, and everywhere you look you hear foreign accents. We are on the edge of the abyss. At my house, we've begun fortifying the basement walls with sandbags and laying in barrels of fresh water and K-rations....

    A Washington Post blog site joins the conga line of the busted. The reporter for the Washington Post’s blog, The Plum Line, is described by the news outlet thusly: “Greg Sargent writes The Plum Line blog, a reported opinion blog with a liberal slant – what you might call ‘opinionated reporting’ from the left. He joined the Post in early 2009, after stints at Talking Points Memo, New York Magazine and the New York Observer.” Wikileaks revealed, within the 74 emails where Sargent’s name in mentioned in Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails, that the substance of Sargent’s “opinionated” columns comes...

    It has always been taken for granted that presidents appoint wealthy donors to commissions, ambassadorships, and other honors. But we have never before seen evidence of the way the transactions are carried out. However, thanks to Wikileaks, we have an actual spreadsheet listing donors and possible purchases of office being circulated among DNC officials. Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller has the story. The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political...

    On Monday morning DNC interim Convention Chair Donna Brazile spoke to reporters about the Wikileaks scandal. Brazile claims the hacked emails were “tampered with.” The truth is at the Democratic Party we have a very open process… On behalf of the party I want to apologize for the salacious and sensitive, very mean-spirited emails that were referenced to in Wikileaks. Now look, we all know the party’s emails were hacked. We know that they are being selectively leaked. We also know that they have been tampered with. And, so I do believe that as a party we have to make...

    ...the dangers are mainly for 534,000 Massachusetts residents who draw their water from private wells, the report found. Unlike public water systems, wells are not subject to state and federal testing and treatment requirements... Environmental advocates said they worry whether the department is up to the job of regulating the water supply....“The DEP really needs to beef up its ground water monitoring.”

    Donald Trump, the GOP nominee for president, vaulted to a four point lead over Hillary Clinton just prior to the Democratic National Convention this week in Philadelphia, according to a Morning Consult poll of 2,502 registered voters. Trump now leads Clinton 44 percent to 40 percent, says the poll, which was conducted from July 22 through July 24. It has an error margin of 2 percent. The New York City developer’s lead is a sizable swing from the past week, when Clinton was clinging to a 2-point lead, wrote Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult’s executive director of polling, and Cameron Easley,...

    I have said repeatedly, over and over, ad nauseum that I do not believe Donald Trump will win the Presidency. Yes, it has always been possible, but it has been very, very improbable that this would happen. I have also said repeatedly that events can change things. And events are now changing things rapidly. Those rapidly changing events are a staggering intervention into the political process by aggressive Trump supporters I never anticipated and only in the last few months realize they were there. They have mobilized, are unwavering in their support, and will say and do anything to get...

    Are you tired of stories speculating about when the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates? Maybe it’s time to stop reacting to them, because they can damage your investment portfolio. If you had panicked last year, fearing a change in central-bank policy would drag down prices of bonds and stocks with high dividend yields, you would have missed out on plenty of income and price gains. (The Fed eventually raised rates, in December, but stocks and bonds today are still near record highs.) “The market can make you do things at precisely the wrong time. Staying the course during times...
