  • Why Donald Trump was a Democrat

    PowerLine ^ | July 24, 2015 | Paul Mirengoff
    Donald Trump was asked today to explain why, as he has said, he has identified more with Democrats than with Republicans. The answer, he claimed, is that the economy crashed in 2008 because of mistakes made by President Bush. This may be a good answer (or the best one available) from a political perspective. Trump is appealing primarily to disaffected Republicans who believe the GOP hasn’t stood up for them sufficiently on issues relating to the economy (immigration is the best example). Attributing his pro-Democrat leanings to Bush’s handling of the economy makes political sense. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make historical...

    Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley apologized on Saturday for saying "All lives matter" while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators. Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, "Black lives matter!" a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O'Malley responded: "Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter." The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by...

    Hip-hop mogul and animal-rights advocate Russell Simmons is comparing New York's horse-drawn carriages to slavery and the Holocaust, saying proponents of the industry are of antiquated a mindset as "people who put people in ovens" at Adolf Hitler's death camps. "There were people for slavery, remember? Slavery was fine," Simmons said at an event Thursday organized by horse carriage opponents, according to The Wall Street Journal. There were people who put people in ovens. There are all kinds of ethnic cleansing, people for it. Simmons urged Mayor de Blasio to follow through on his campaign promise to ban the horse...

    A stretch of paradise in Malibu, California known as the 'Billionaire's Beach' is now open to the public. The sandy Carbon Beach West which opened this month was the subject of a fight between property owner Lisette Ackerberg and the California Coastal Commission that went on for about three decades. Even though the beach was technically public, pathways to the destination were blocked by wealthy property owners who fought to keep the beach private. The LA Times reports that celebrities such as former Dodgers owner Jamie McCourt and former chief executive of Oracle Corp. have houses along the beach.

    TAMPA Most of the 21 homicides and more than two dozen shootings Tampa police have investigated this year have several factors in common. The violence primarily is a result of neighborhood feuds among groups of mostly young black men, police say. All of the shootings took place in East and West Tampa. And investigators are struggling to get information from witnesses and victims about who committed the crimes. Another pattern has emerged that has Tampa police and federal authorities working together to put a stop to it: Most of the bullets are being fired from stolen guns. We believe...

"Yes, clearly, they're disrespectful," Pataki told Business Insider of Trump's comments in a brief interview before the annual New York Republican Party's gala. Trump characterized Mexican immigrants in his campaign launch speech as "rapists" and drug runners when talking about how he'd focus as president on reducing illegal immigration. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best; they're not sending you," Trump said in his announcement speech....

    For Kiev, winning the public relations war against Vladimir Putin would seem to be a no-brainer. For a year now, the Kremlin has conducted a thinly-disguised war of aggression in eastern Ukraine resulting in the deaths of thousands. Yet Kiev seems intent on squandering any international public support it might have had amidst a bizarre crackdown on free speech and censorship of controversial historical debates. Through its crackdown, Ukraine has actually played into Putin's propaganda war and facilitated Russia's PR efforts. At issue is Ukraine's contentious World War II past, some of which isn't particularly flattering. With the support of...

Despite the obstacles that have been placed in the pathway of progressives, Friedman is correct beyond dispute. Think back to a decade ago. Same-sex marriage was considered an abomination in large parts of the country. Christian fundamentalists were flexing their muscles as never before. Rush Limbaugh and Fox dominated the American media landscape. The Bush administration had launched a war on climate science. Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was gay-bashing his way to national prominence. Today, marriage equality is the...

Only 34 percent approve. Among those who dont attend religious services, approval of Obama stood at 58 percent to 38 percent. There are really two Jewish votes; the religious Jewish vote and the secular Jewish vote. ... When we...

    Since ancient Athens free speech has been at the heart of political freedom. “Free men have free tongues,” as Sophocles said, for freedom depended on citizens empowered to speak freely in the public deliberations about policy and the laws through which they governed. That’s why the Founders wrote the First Amendment, to prevent force from trumping law by silencing dissent. That’s also why the enemies of political freedom always try to destroy free speech.Violence or force has been the usual instrument for controlling speech, whether by murder, torture, incarceration, burning books, or shutting down presses and Internet sites.

America's moral decline began with Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt [FDR].

Food is political. Sports, entertainment, your inner motives and outer appearance, all have political salience for liberal fascists. While Liberal fascism differs from classical fascism, what unites them are their emotional or instinctual impulses, such as the quest for community, a faith in the perfect ability of man, the authority of experts, and an obsession with the cult of action, and the need for an all-powerful state, notes...

    Perla Alvarez, the Associated Students of the University of Oregons (ASUO) Multicultural Advocate, believes that eating a burrito on Cinco de Mayo, as well as other things such as eating guacamole, is cultural appropriation of Mexican culture. She begins her letter to Oregons student newspaper by writing, Its Cinco de Mayo! Yay for some of you who want to party! However, it sucks for those of us who do not celebrate this day and have to witness you appropriating our culture. Despite the fact that most colleges in the United States push for more diversity and understanding of cultures, Ms....

    Louder With Crowder ^ | 12/21/09 | Steven Crowder
    I'm pretty sure this was posted a couple of years ago, but with Baltimore and Ferguson recently in the news (and in flames), it is worth another look. Steven Crowder's "Detroit in Ruins" is (IMO) a well done piece on Detroit's fall from grace under liberal influence, put in power by the UAW.

    According to Professor Cody Pogue, the riots occurring in Baltimore are, in part, due to white privilege. Pogue teaches at Houston Community College and San Jacinto College. Today Pogue wrote an article titled, The Baltimore riots within the context of White Privilege. His article begins, I do not approve of the riots in Baltimore. At the same time, I do not understand what else we expect them to do. Numerous studies have proven that, in America today, white people are more privileged than black people. Pogue then writes about white privilege, saying that, White people nearly always get the benefit...

    The left is winning, but for the left winning is indistinguishable from dying. The West didnt defeat Communism; it held it at bay long enough for it to defeat itself. The Soviet Union and the Peoples Republic of China crushed Communism more decisively than Goldwater could have ever dreamed of.

    Sunday, we found out that U.S. Senator Joe Manchin removed himself from the running for Governor of West Virginia, but during the same announcement, he endorsed Hillary Clinton as his favorite presidential candidate. When Senator Manchin endorsed Hillary Clinton and her presidential campaign on Sunday, he described Clinton as warm, compassionate, engaging, and tough. In 2008, Manchin waited until the Democratic candidate was already decided before endorsing Barack Obama.
  • How Rand Paul is turning off Republicans by stretching the truth

    Rand Paul has cast himself as a Diogenes for the modern era, a truth-seeker who can't seem to find an honest man or woman no matter where he shines his lamp in Washington. That's why his willingness to say almost anything about himself and other Republicans, regardless of whether it's true, poses an existential threat to his brand. It's only a matter of time before the offended start punching back publicly, and that will surely start with fellow Republicans. Many of them had a right to be aggrieved after Paul's speech this weekend at the First in the...
  • Sweden's Ceaseless Far-Left Bent a Result of Guilt from Shameful (Covert) Nazi Collaboration?

    Just like with Germany-in-general (and Gunter Grass in particular) Sweden's obsessive liberalism -especially regarding minorities/immigration- could be understood as enduring societal guilt for their forefathers' close collaboration with the Nazis while cowardly claiming to be 'neutral'... Sweden's role as Nazi Germany's key iron ore supplier has been dismissed -as Swiss banking often was- as mere 'commercial' transactions, but it's hard to explain-awaynew informationin a just-released book detailing how the Swedish government assisted the Wehrmacht's invasion of neighboring Norway by offering Sweden's national railways to ferry troops and equipment north, which were then used to defeat the British at Narvik (leading...

    <p>At this time of year, the last thing anyone wants to think about is paying more taxes. But there's one tax I'm in favor of - and you should be, too, if you care about your health and the health of the planet: a sin tax on meat, cheese and other animal-based foods.</p>

    New Republic ^ | April 15, 2015 | Brian Beutler
    Because Hillary Clinton is white and no longer young, a strain of political thought holds that she might lack Barack Obamas inherent appeal to new and minority voters and thus that she wont be able to ride the Democratic partys demographic advantages to easy victory in 2016. Writing for the Washington Examiner, Philip Klein ably sketches the nightmare scenario for liberals. If Hillary's performance among black voters retreats to more typical Democratic levels, he writes, it will hinder her efforts in swing states such as Ohio and Florida, where Democrats need to rack up huge margins in urban areas to...

    Israel Matzav ^ | 4/14/15 | Carl in Jerusalem
    Bret Stephens reports that Barack Hussein Obama learned how to lie from the Clintons, and that if Hillary Clinton is - God Forbid - elected President, she will continue the lying tradition. Sometime in the 1990s I began to understand the Clinton way of lying, and why it was so successful. To you and me, the Clinton lies were statements demonstrably at variance with the truth, and therefore wrong and shameful. But to the initiated they were an invitation to an intoxicating secret knowledge.What was this knowledge? That the lying was for the greater good, usually to fend off...
