  • Hillary Is About as Qualified To Be President as Paris Hilton

    The downside of being governed by idiots is that people start to think that any idiot can be president. Speaking of idiots, what exactly qualifies Hillary Clinton to be president? Is it that she’s a woman? Guess what, Paris Hilton is a woman, too! Is it that Hillary was a senator for five minutes and then became Secretary of State? Guess what, Paris Hilton has exactly as many significant accomplishments as a senator and Secretary of State as Hillary, which is zero. Is it that Hillary slept with Bill? Well, she has Paris beat there….probably. Who really knows at this...

  • Trump dominates Sunday talk shows

    Trump also promised to cut spending and waste in government, a promise met with skepticism from both hosts. Yet it has been pointed out that just eliminating zero-based budgeting alone, which automatically increases government spending by 6 percent a year, would stop the growth of government spending and the debt trajectory. Trump implied that there would be cuts in whole departments and business efficiencies brought to procurement and spending. As he put it in previous interviews, Its called management. *snip* It was clear Trump had the American economy on his mind, first and foremost. He was detailed and less bombastic...

    The Washington Post's Volokh Conspiracy ^ | October 4, 2015 | Professor Ilya Somin, George Mason University
    In this recent USA Today op ed, I explain how the unexpected success of Donald Trumps presidential campaign is in large part the result of widespread political ignorance: Despite some recent stumbles in his campaign, the most dramatic development of the 2016 presidential race has been the meteoric ascent of Donald Trump to the status of front-runner for the Republican nomination. Trumps rise is a particularly blatant example of a much deeper problem at the heart of modern democracy: widespread voter ignorance. Trumps success so far is in large part the result of an almost perfect storm of political ignorance....

    Judging by the recent actions of the Clinton campaign: Americans dont need access to Hillary Clinton. Thats the underlying message Hillary for America volunteers received when her campaign had a scheduled stop at a black church in Florissant Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. Clinton was in town to speak to one of her core constituencies; the so-called black community (so-called because lumping all 48 million black Americans into one monolithic hive mind is silliness.)

She said his campaign has been a gift from God and explained to an amazed Meyers how Trump is not just crushing his opponents in the polls, but doing so by a mile and keeping serious candidates out of the race. Meyers found the bright side: no one will be able to take him down with comments he made on a hot mic or something because the...

Hillary's Twitter launch on April 12 was received with words like "sleek," "savvy," "trending," "electrifying," and "approachable" She was packaged by the press exactly as she wanted it: a humble "champion of everyday Americans." Compare that to the Ted Cruz launch on March 23. These words framed the introduction: "scary," "dangerous," "slimy," "firebrand,"...

When a Republican is gaining strength, the press sharpens its bayonets. Based on his response to trap-door questions in the past few days, we've been instructed that Walker a) is a crypto young Earther (or, just as bad, a panderer to same); b) that he ought to have answered...

The orphanage took care of babies given up by unwed mothers from 1925 to 1961, but in articles on June 3 and June 8, the AP said evidence pointed to a number of potential atrocities.

She's also an archetype for our liberal feminist media.

Yet, it's been 123 days, 17 and a half weeks, since the show's hosts have focused on ObamaCare and the problems with the law's implementation. Harris educated his audience: "In the iconic rap song, Baby Got Back, Sir-Mix-A-Lot professes his love for women with large rear ends."

Should there be any foul play or skirting of the rules, theres an official or referee there to cry foul. Its simple and, to borrow a word from President Obama, fair. Politics, on the other hand, is quite different. Truth used to be the most potent weapon in the game of politics. It was the best tool with which to garner the most votes, and whoever got...

    Patriot Update ^ | January 4, 2014 | David Risselada
    There was a great article at the Save America Foundation recently. The author does a great job detailing the collusion of big government and the media as they attempt to give the impression that Obamacare is a colossal success. While it can be argued that many people are awakening to the totalitarian nature of the ACA, it can also be said that the fight for restoring liberty is about to take an ugly turn. In this article, David Mckalip points to the facts that a refusal to enroll in Obamacare is now being portrayed as unpatriotic, selfish and a failure...

    RealNews24 ^ | 12//18/13? | Mike Adams,
    MSNBC host says newborn infants dont count as alive unless parents decide they do; infanticide is the new abortion Today Natural News denounces Melissa Harris-Perry, the latest talking head death worshipper to publicly imply that she supports the murder of living, breathing newborn children. According to Harris-Perry, life begins when the parents feel like life begins. And together with some twisted new ethics arguments from the radical left, this can include months or years after a child is born. Thats why I need to premise this article with a disclaimer: This article is not about abortion. Its about the murder...

Correspondent Lara Logan and her producer Max McClellan are on a leave of absence, following the results of an internal report on their discredited story. Logan was notably absent from Sundays 60 Minutes open...
  • Obama's Picture-Perfect Propaganda

    It might seem like another day in Tea Party Land when a conservative columnist accuses President Barack Obama's White House of "airbrushing history" like the Stalin-era Soviet Union. But the columnist isn't a conservative. It's Dana Milbank of the liberal Washington Post complaining about what's happened to White House news photographers. He's not alone. A New York Times photographer has publicly compared Team Obama to the Soviet Tass news agency. What is going on? As the wheels come off the Barack Obama Hope-and-Change Bus, the White House is now restricting access to the very media that have done little but...
  • We Live in a World of Lies

    Remember the terrible murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyo. in 1998 -- tortured, beaten and left hanging on a fence to die -- because he was gay? The American people were led from the outset to believe that Shepard was the victim of a hate crime, murdered because he was gay. And that is how virtually every American still views the story. In the words of Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), "Matthew Shepard is to gay rights what Emmett Till was to the civil rights movement." A play based on Shepard's killing, "The Laramie Project" became, according to the...
  • Seven Phony Hate Crimes Trumpeted By The Media

    11/30/2013 4:38:00 AM PST · by Kaslin · 40 replies ^ | November 30, 2013 | John Hawkins
    One of the oldest rules in psychology and economics is that if you reward a behavior, you can expect to see it more often. In America, we reward victimhood. That makes us feel good about ourselves and in some cases, it helps improve the lives of the people who've been victimized, but there's a dark side to it as well. It creates perverse incentives for people, it helps legitimize a victimhood mentality, and it also encourages people to fake hate crimes. Under normal circumstances, that would seldom happen. However, in a society where we celebrate victimhood and savagely attack people...

    Hunting show hostess Melissa Bachman recently shot a lion in Africa, posted the triumphant picture on Facebook and now ABC (among many other enlightened parties) are all over her. An ABC World News segment shows New York-based Lana Zak petting a tame and cuddly cub on location in a South African zoo, while purring that: lions like these are beloved in Africa. Maybe by some of Zaks yuppie counterparts in places like Capetown and Nairobi. But not by Africans who live among wild ones. Lions are certainly beloved in Hollywood, the Upper East Side, Georgetown, etc. Its a different story...
  • Some Conservative Advice For Chris Christie

    Whether we like it or not and we dont theres a significant chance that Chris Christie will be the 2016 Republican nominee. Perhaps he can use a few helpful hints from the GOPs Tea Party/Constitutional Conservative/Actual Conservative wing. Lets start by establishing a baseline: We dont like you and we dont trust you. Now, thats not a deal breaker. You feel the same way about us. There is nothing that says we conservatives cant grow to like and/or trust you. Maybe we just got off on the wrong foot. So, in that spirit, lets share our feelings. We...
