  • The Electoral College Was Meant to Stop Men Like Trump From Being President

    The Atlantic ^ | November 21, 2016 | Peter Beinhart
    Americans talk about democracy like it’s sacred. In public discourse, the more democratic American government is, the better. The people are supposed to rule. But that’s not the premise that underlies America’s political system. Most of the men who founded the United States feared unfettered majority rule. James Madison wrote in Federalist 10 that systems of government based upon “pure democracy … have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property.” John Adams wrote in 1814 that, “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself.”

    As for many of you, last Tuesday was a very bad day for me.... Is our next president a demagogue or democrat? ...I have been involved in politics for more than 50 years, and this is certainly not the first time I've been on the losing end. It always hurts. And this one maybe hurts more than the rest — partly because we didn't really lose. Our side got more popular votes, while Trump received fewer votes than Mitt Romney or John McCain. ...The Founding Fathers provided tools to combat the demagogues they knew might come along.

    Where's the birth certificate? In bizarre ‘birther’ twist, claims Trump is Pakistani Report says president-elect was born as Dawood Ibrahim Khan in Waziristan before being adopted by American family By Times of Israel staff November 13, 2016, After years leading the false charge that President Barack Obama was born outside of the United States, President-elect Donald Trump is facing his own minor “birtherism” moment, with a Pakistani television network claiming the New Yorker was born in Pakistan. “Believe it or not, presidential candidate Donald Trump was born in Pakistan and not in America,” the Urdu-language Neo News reported last month...

    Without mind bending drugs, leftist logic is a little unclear. I guess that’s why universities these days dedicate so much course work to it and Hollywood makes so many movies showing us how leftism really is a good thing (achievable with special effects). In realville, where practical application of any thesis is required, there isn’t much apparent logic in leftism at all. Rather, a plethora of conflicting thoughts and feelings trample one another for dominance. The two forces that keep the various leftist special interests from implosion and mutual self destruction are their ignorance of their ignorance and their hatred...
  • My Wife’s Killer Was Not an ‘Illegal Immigrant’

    On Nov. 1, 2006, I found my wife, Adrienne Shelly, dead in her West Village office. Adrienne, an actor and filmmaker, had been brutally murdered by a 19-year-old undocumented Ecuadorean construction worker; he later said they were having an argument and, fearing she would report him and have him deported, he killed her and staged her death so it would appear to be a suicide. Our daughter was just 2 years old at the time. Given the anger and grief I still feel, I could easily be seduced by Donald J. Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric that is the cornerstone of his...

Democrat Kathleen Kane who was convicted of using her public office to terrorize and persecute her political enemies. Only an idiot would still call Democrats “liberals” after seeing what they do in office. Words matter. One of the things I see Republicans do all the time that helps Democrats a lot is when a writer on the Right uses the word “liberal” to describe any Democrat. To me, that is like cutting a check for $100 and sending it to the DNC for every...

So it wasn’t just something we did one day a year, but it became a regular part of our lives,” she asked in a Florida rally on the topic of national service Friday. The former secretary of state argued that her volunteer plan would help combat growing self-segregation in America, where people surround themselves with people who think, talk, look and read the same news as them....

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.

    This buffoonish in-your-face leftist lesbian said it’s 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 “feminazi” 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...

    (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...

    In the wake of the UK’s vote Thursday to leave the EU, comparisons of Brexit's  success to the rise of Donald Trump have been flying far and wide. 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’s. Trump himself has massive weaknesses in personality, popularity, and campaign mechanics that an issue-oriented campaign doesn’t. And where "Leave" and "Remain" were essentially...

Everywhere Leftist protesters occupy the streets, those whose opinions are deemed insufficiently progressive are abused, mocked, ridiculed, brutalized and physically menaced. This lawlessness is rapidly becoming the norm; the Obama administration, as well as leading media and cultural figures, need to decry that normalization and act strongly against these thugs now – before the American public square is transformed beyond recognition, and ceases to be an arena for free discourse.
  • Don't blame Trump's words, blame Leftist anarchists

    IMHO, blaming Trump for inciting just another Chicago riot is a little lame. Leftist anarchists have been protesting for years, sometimes with little to protest about. Lefties have it in their blood to protest. They always have a "cause" to yell hey hey, ho ho - whatever! Lefties will protest any conservative politician who threatens their government check, or promotes capitalism. Despite the downfall of socialist countries like Venezuela, the Lefties adore socialism. Hard to figure. The height of Leftism (a word?) is promoted on the college campus where only one voice is taught and "skulls full of mush" get...

    Donald Trump's Failed Business Ventures Are Back in the Spotlight BY CORKY SIEMASZKO (snip) Trump has had numerous business successes, like Trump Tower, 40 Wall Street and "The Apprentice." But not every Trump venture turned to gold — and the businesses Romney cited were notorious misfires. Trump University was an online college launched in 2005 that offered to teach the mogul's real estate and entrepreneurship strategies, and charged fees ranging from $1,500 to $35,000. But it was never accredited. In 2013, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sued, claiming the university was a scam operation that defrauded around 600 students...

  • ABC/WaPo national poll: Trump’s lead declines, Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich all gain

    We’re 12 hours away from knowing whether the “Trump fade” hinted at by last week’s results is real or not, but if you’re looking for poll data to support the thesis in the meantime, you can’t do better than this. I can’t think of a poll taken this year, state or national, that’s looked worse for him. He’s still ahead but Cruz is now within single digits and every important trendline is steering in the wrong direction for him.I’ve never believed that he has a hard ceiling, for the simple reason that the subtraction of candidates from the field...
  • Trump Hits a Wall Within the GOP; His Critics Back a Convention Fight (POLL)

    ABC News ^ | Gary Langer
    Donald Trump’s facing a wall within his party, with Republicans who don’t currently support him far more apt to prefer Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio in a two-way race -- or even to favor a contested convention to block Trump’s nomination. Trump continues to lead in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, with 34 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents who are registered to vote saying they’d like to see him win the nomination. But he trails both Cruz and Rubio one-on-one. And preferences for Cruz, Rubio and John Kasich have grown as others have left the race, while Trump’s...

    Fatima Perspectives ^ | March 7, 2016 | Christopher A. Ferrara
    If only it were possible to avoid what has become an almost continuous commentary on the sayings and doings of Pope Francis. But one does not ignore the public statements of a Pope, especially from this Fatima perspective. And at this point in the Bergoglian pontificate, the landscape of the Church is cratered by the bombshells Francis has been dropping almost weekly in off-the-cuff homilies, meditations, press conferences and other settings outside the four corners of an encyclical or other formal papal pronouncement. Here is one bombshell from February, on Ash Wednesday. It was dropped in a sermon given to...

    David Duke, a white nationalist and former Klu Klux Klan grand wizard, told his audience Wednesday that voting for anyone besides Donald Trump “is really treason to your heritage.” “Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point, is really treason to your heritage,” Duke said on the David Duke Radio Program. BuzzFeed News first reported the comments. Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/02/david-duke-trump-219777#ixzz41bXJPthx

    What may be the most appealing thing about being a leftist is that you can never be wrong - ever. As we learned from our last post, leftist ideas never fail because their only objective is to make leftists feel good about themselves.If their ideas appear to fail, it is always someone else's fault - greedy businesses, obstinate Republicans, racist Americans, etc. It never even enters the thought process that when a leftist idea fails it's becasue their ideas might not have been good to begin with. As The Bookworm puts it,"Conservatives deal with facts and reach conclusions; liberals have...
