    American Thinker ^ | September 22, 2016 | Bruce Walker
    The principal distinction between the right and the left is that the former is rich and the latter is poor. The principal distinction is that the right is filled with people who work in real jobs that produce valuable goods and services while the left is infested with people who do not work or do useless work, like lawyers, professors, and community organizers. Consider the occupations of the last few nominees of the two parties. The Republicans nominated men who had been war heroes (Dole and McCain and George H. Bush) or businessmen (George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, and Trump),...

    This buffoonish in-your-face leftist lesbian said itís a good thing if conservatives feel unable to express their views for fear of facing hostility from their peers or professors. I seem to recall that it was Rush Limbaugh who coined the term ďfeminaziĒ to describe the most militant of feminists. It was from about two decades ago when feminists, who were especially aggressive on university campuses, openly embraced totalitarianism. Intellectuals Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon embraced a fascistic form of feminism that sought to dictate how Americans thought and behaved. MacKinnon, amazingly enough a law professor, injected a virulent poison into...

    For more than four decades, Stanley Sheinbaum regularly gathered moguls, presidents, celebrities and activists in his Brentwood living room to sip wine and debate the issues of the day. King Hussein and Queen Noor of Jordan, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Norman Lear, Barbra Streisand and Warren Beatty were among the many famous faces who participated in the vibrant salons Sheinbaum and his wife, Betty, held at their art-filled home on exclusive Rockingham Avenue. But more than a high-powered host, Sheinbaum often was a change agent, whose fingerprints can be found on a remarkable array of notable events.

    (CNN)-Donald Trump is postponing a major immigration speech he was set to deliver Thursday in Colorado as his campaign continues to fine-tune his immigration policy. The decision came after Trump, whose hardline immigration policies appealed to many GOP primary voters, met Saturday with his Hispanic advisory council and said in an interview Monday morning that he wants to "come up with a really fair, but firm" immigration policy. Trump denied in an interview Monday morning on Fox News that he was "flip-flopping" on the issue of illegal immigration. A Trump campaign source said the campaign decided to push back Trump's...

This is only natural, since anti-immigrant, anti-elite, and nationalist sentiments played major roles in both shocking phenomena. Of course, many of these analogies are too facile. The US faces no comparable controversy over regulations from a transnational economic bureaucracy. The US electorate is much more diverse than Britain¬ís.

John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, has come out and condemned the actions of left-wing agitators.

However, not everyone all voices are calling for cooler heads to prevail. Emmett Rensin, an editor at left-wing Vox.com, is one such voice.

The same media refuses to acknowledge that almost all of the violence at these rallies are at the hands of their fellow leftist buddies intent on shutting down anyone they disagree with.

    We know that liberals desperately pursue those things that cause them to hate themselves. Who knows why?

    New York‚Äôs Daily News used to play it pretty straight‚Äďa flashy tabloid, to be sure, but one that kept its opinions on the editorial page. Yesterday‚Äôs taunting cover, aimed at blaming the Republicans in the wake of the San Bernardino massacre, shows how far it‚Äôs moved left.

    According to a local Los Angeles news report, a neighbor of San Bernardino massacre suspects Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik didn't report suspicious activity at their apartment for fear of being accused of racism. This is the same politically correct culture that lead to the Ft. Hood shooting when Nidal Hassan, who had been spouting violent Islamic propaganda to neighbors on post and reaching out to Al Qaeda, was ignored for fear of "Islamaphobia" accusations. The warning signs were all there: the justification of homicide bombings; the spewing of anti-American hatred; the efforts to reach Al Qaeda ... But...

    Over the last 48 hours, the unserious parade of clown leftists in politics and the media have jumped on every narrative rake in sight. They desperately wanted the shooting in San Bernardino to be a right-winger with an NRA tramp stamp gone mad. Instead, it turned out to be two Muslims who dropped their six-month-old baby off in order to pursue killing.

    The Right Scoop ^ | Nov 30, 2015
    The media is reporting today that Ted Cruz has called the Planned Parenthood shooter a ‚Äėtransgender leftist‚Äô, but that‚Äôs not what he said at all. He was simply pointing to the fact that we don‚Äôt have enough information about the shooter to make a decision, and referenced our report that the shooter had been registered as a female on his voting record after the news reporter said it was reported that the shooter said ‚Äėno more baby parts‚Äô. He wasn‚Äôt calling the shooter a transgender leftist, just saying there are reports suggesting it.Watch:Ted Cruz's Remark (Video)

    Charles, a reader I'll identify as "PJM" emailed me about the Washington Post's treatment of that quote. Here's the email with some light edits: Please tell me that you or someone at NR is going to take on this hatchet job at the Washington Post. The article is headlined, Ted Cruz cites reports that Planned Parenthood shooter could be ‚Äėtransgendered leftist activist.' What? The article reports that, "on one side," a representative of Planned Parenthood blamed the shooting on hateful rhetoric from the right, and then cites Cruz's statement, "on the other." But if you read far enough down you...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says widespread race protests at American colleges and universities are being carried out by "leftist, coddled kids" with "trust funds.""We're seeing universities all across this country with leftist, coddled kids - usually with trust funds - protesting against horrible aggression, because the micro-aggression [of] 'I heard a word that scared me,' " Cruz said at the Presidential Family Forum in Iowa on Friday, according to the Des Moines Register. "What's wrong with our universities?" Cruz, who is running for president, criticized political correctness for discouraging the pursuit of truth. "The best answer to political correctness is...

    For famed science educator, comedian, and author Bill Nye (the science guy) watching a NASCAR race with his family is bittersweet. The super-fast cars zipping around the track is "exciting," Nye explains in his latest book, "Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World." But the technology is "depressing," Nye writes because

    Oslo's new leftist city council said on Monday that it wanted to ban private cars from the downtown area by 2019 as part of a plan to slash greenhouse gas emissions by half. The plan was laid out by the Labour Party and its allies the Socialist Left and the Green Party, who won the September 14 municipal elections in the Norwegian capital. The programme envisages a ban on private vehicles in the city centre which, according to the Verdans Gang newspaper, is home to only about 1,000 people but where some 90,000 work. Although the city council did not...
