  • Democrats Aren’t Rushing To Defend Hillary Clinton

    National Journal ^ | 3/4/2015 | RACHEL ROUBEIN AND LAUREN FOX
    Everyone in Washington is talking about Hillary Clinton's use of a personal e-mail account during her four years as secretary of State and her homebrew computer server. Everyone, that is, except for many Senate Democrats. As operatives, strategists and opposition research groups rush to her defense, some Washington Senate Democrats are remaining silent for the moment, saying they've been too busy with the week's packed schedule to be fully briefed on the crisis du jour. Democrats have a difficult line to walk. They don't want to be seen hitting their strongest contender to keep the White House, but that does...
  • Scott Walker as Sen. Joe McCarthy

    Shepherd Express - Milwaukee ^ | March 4, 2015 | Joel McNally
    It’s time to consider whether Gov. Scott Walker is intentionally employing the brazenly dishonest tactics of Sen. Joe McCarthy, who previously held the title as the most dangerous national politician to come out of Wisconsin. Since the 1950s, right-wing Sen. McCarthy has been the worst stain on both Wisconsin politics and the Republican Party nationally. McCarthy achieved that distinction by getting an entire, shameful era in U.S. politics—the McCarthy Era—named after him. McCarthyism turned the ’50s into a reckless, anti-Communist witch hunt as Wisconsin’s Republican senator made wildly irresponsible, untruthful accusations about Communists subverting our government (the moderate Eisenhower administration!),...

    In spite of the overwhelming success of American Sniper, it received only one Oscar out of the six categories for which it was nominated. It was a consolation prize most likely—one that allowed the Academy to maintain their façade of integrity, while not causing Hollywood liberals' heads to explode. But this isn’t about the public sensation the film has become. It’s about another phenomenon: the predictable reactions that came from the left. There’s no need to detail or recap the antagonism. But now that the furor of angry and confused criticism is beginning to subside to non-toxic levels, I think...

    In late 2014, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule that would further ratchet down national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ground level ozone from the current level of 75 parts per billion (ppb) to a range of 65 to 70 ppb. Notably, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) declared the proposal to be the most expensive regulation ever imposed on the country. A study recently conducted by NERA Economic Consulting and commissioned by NAM confirms NAM’s earlier statement. Specifically, the study reveals that reducing the current ozone standard to 65 ppb would reduce U.S. gross...

    Buyer’s remorse is already setting in for Google and other ‘net neutrality’ proponents. When Google’s Eric Schmidt called White House officials a few weeks ago to oppose President Obama ’s demand that the Internet be regulated as a utility, they told him to buzz off. The chairman of the company that led lobbying for “net neutrality” learned the Obama plan made in its name instead micromanages the Internet. Mr. Schmidt is not the only liberal mugged by the reality of Obamanet... as details leak out, liberals have joined the opposition to ending the Internet as we know it. The Progressive...

    And if you don’t believe in Obama, you’re a racist enemy of all that’s good and progressive who is going to liberal hell. Or as they call it, Portland. If you want to infuriate a liberal, question his patriotism. He’ll sneer, mock and ridicule the question. And then when he is up against the wall, he will mumble that the real patriots don’t need to wear flag pins because they covertly perform their patriotism in the dead of night when no one is looking.

Pearson, a 12-year-old conservative from Georgia who posted a viral video supporting Rudy Giuliani, discovered that his personal Facebook page was locked. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com on Saturday, Pearson said he received a message from someone about 6 a.m. Friday.

    Warren, who is closely aligned with progressive union groups, ripped Walker in a tweet Saturday for what some saw as a comparison between union members and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria: "If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it's time we take a closer look at his friends.” In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, Walker said, “If I can take on 100,000 protestors, I can do the same across the world.” Walker, a possible 2016 presidential candidate for the GOP, tried to walk back his comments after his...

    Not all good principles are easily accessible to all. It took the economics profession a hundred years to understand value as marginal utility, and a while longer to understand it wasn’t measurable. Philosophers and scientists had been thinking about the physical world for millennia, but it wasn’t until Newton that the greatest strides were made to some first principles — only to have his perspective on matter and force transformed by Einstein a few centuries later. And I know that many ideas go in and out of my head, too. I bet even geniuses have to struggle to learn well...

    The first time the Affordable Care Act came before the Supreme Court, its constitutional foundation under attack, John G. Roberts Jr. was its unlikely savior. In a spectacular display of spot-welding, the chief justice joined fellow conservatives on some points and brought liberals on board for others. Roberts was the only member of the court to endorse the entire jerry-rigged thing, and even he made sure to distance himself from the substance of the law. (“It is,” he wrote, “not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”) Still, his efforts rescued President Obama’s signature...

    The good thing about a book like Ghettoside: A True Story of Murder in America is that it's real reportage about murder in the African American ghetto; it's not just narrative from the usual social justice warriors. Author Leovy's angle is that routine murder in African American ghettos is invisible, in the sense that individual murders don't get a write-up in the paper. So she decided to do something about it, The Homicide Report, a blog that documents each and every murder in LA. Each murder, routine as it is, devastates a family, but the cops only arrest a suspect...

    Great news for consumers in Florida: Governor Rick Scott has proposed $470 million in communications services tax relief. Governor Scott’s proposed budget would reduce the communications services tax for mobile, cable services and non-residential landlines by 39 percent. Furthermore, his proposed budget would also reduce the communications services tax for satellite services by 27 percent. Under the governor’s budget proposal, a family spending an average of $100 a month on cell phone, cable and satellite television services could save about $43 a year. Currently, Florida’s state and local communications services tax is one of the highest in the nation, with...

So let's do something that's worthy of emancipation,” said Biden, according to...

    Unnecessary occupational licensing laws limit free market competition and discourage employment by preventing people from entering the workforce. In recent years, hair braiding has been a focus of licensing battles within state courts and legislatures. Late last week, Arkansas and Iowa both took initial steps to expand opportunities for hair braiding businesses. In Arkansas, a bill that would exempt hair braiding from state cosmetology regulations, HB 1177, passed through The House of Representatives and now sits in the Senate Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee. This bill would provide certification to professional hair braiders following a certain period of practice....

    Liberals are very fond of trying to conflate the teachings of the Bible with those of the Quran. It is an attempt to destroy the foundations of our liberty by indicting Christianity with the atrocities of Islam. For liberals, violence is only religious if it impunes Christians. The Bible is a threat to liberal, leftist dogma because it is truth that diametrically opposes the humanist statism that is the utopia of the American left. Atrocities committed by Islamists are met with only nervous smiles or with blathering inanities about jobs for ISIS because Islam is not an American institution to...

    Yesterday, Walmart announced that, beginning in April of this year, the company will raise the pay of all its employees to at least $9 an hour. In 2016, the company’s minimum pay rate will again jump to $10. This move will affect approximately 500,000 Walmart employees and, along with several other changes such as increased training and scheduling options, is estimated to cost the company $1 billion. Walmart’s pay increase follows a number of businesses, including Aetna, Ikea and Gap Inc., that have announced an internal company minimum wage higher than the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour.

    Today's liberals are not racists, but they often behave that way. They would benefit immensely from considering some of the arguments in award-winning scholar Dr. Shelby Steele's forthcoming book, "Shame: How America's Past Sins Have Polarized Our Country." Steele, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, explains that in matters of race, there is an ideological vision that completely ignores truth -- a vision he calls "poetic truth." In literature, poetic license takes liberties with grammatical rules, as well as realities, in order to create a more beautiful or powerful effect than would be otherwise possible. Liberals have a poetic...

Also happy with low gas prices are state governments, but mainly for different reasons: politicians in certain states see low gas prices as an opportunity to raise the gas tax. Here’s a map of the states currently considering an increase in gas tax:

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 2/5/2015 | Jim Hoft
    Gallup CEO and Chairman Jim Clifton doubled-down on his comments earlier in the week on the misleading Obama unemployment rate. Obama says the unemployment rate is 5.6% which is very misleading. Clifton went on America’s Newsroom today to explain the misleading government numbers. “The number of full-time jobs, and that’s what everybody wants, as a percent of the total population, is the lowest it’s ever been… The other thing that is very misleading about that number is the more people that drop out, the better the number gets. In the recession we lost 13 million jobs. Only 3 million have...
  • Why is the Left denying the Islamic in ISIS the same way they deny Socialists were Socialists?

    Has anyone noticed that the nation’s leftist socialists are using the very same tactic with Islamic Terrorists [ISIS] as they incessantly use with the Nazis and other Socialists? Talk to any of the Leftists on the national socialist scene and they will go incandescent if you accurately attribute that the Nazi were socialists. It’s part of their freaking name for Pete’s sake: German Nationalsozialistische [deutsche Arbeiter-Partei] (National SOCIALIST [German Workers' Party])But that doesn’t deter leftists from denying reality. They will also deny that the USSR was Socialist… Even though THAT is also in their very name: Union of Soviet SOCIALIST...

    This is a story about two perfectly engineered inmates of the Democrats’ plantation. In many areas of the big cities run by Democrats it is dangerous for an honest person live or visit. One’s safety is not necessarily defined by skin color as a beautiful and industrious 18 year old African American woman named Marguerite La Joy Washington was to find out. On October 1, 2012, the college freshman was murdered as she sat in a New Orleans apartment. The gunmen who ended her life had come to kill her boyfriend but shot both of them during their attack. Two...

    The 2nd Amendment. While it was designed to be the last line of defense against a tyrannical government, it inadvertently is also a deterrent for radical Progressives who wish to fundamentally change our Constitutional Republic. Case in point. In 1988 Progressive author, Bob Zimmerman, ran for a Hawaiian Congressional seat and was soundly defeated. In 2015 Mr. Zimmerman has written a free “book” titled Common Sense. He modeled it after the historic pamphlet written by Thomas Paine which shared the same title. But instead of embracing individual Liberty, Mr. Zimmerman uses the words of the Founders to push a centralized,...

    RUSH: One of the things that happened last week, folks. As I mentioned at the top of the program, because of the death of our partner here, last week was a fog. It really was. I mean, even the issues in the news, even the things happening in the country that we discussed here... I'm just gonna speak for myself. It was just... I don't know. Everything was in a fog. I don't know how else to describe it. It was more than going through the motions, but still there were mental distractions. There was one story that happened last...

    On Saturday, the police say, parolee Michael Morris dragged his ex-girlfriend halfway across the county – twice putting a gun to her head and threatening to execute her – before he crashed a birthday her family was holding and shot a half a dozen people, wounding some of them severely. This was in Syracuse, New York, at an Irish bar in the old Irish neighborhood known as Tipperary Hill. Twenty-two years old, out of prison in December after doing five years for a crime at 17 he committed while toting a stolen handgun. On the plus side, the bar was...

    Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson said the Obama administration has been producing its own video content to promote “unfiltered” messages with taxpayer-funded staff, including hairstylists, makeup artists and wardrobe consultants. By cutting out the news media, Attkisson said the White House has figured out how to avoid questions and accountability. She also revealed that the Department of Agriculture has more than 1,200 “media relations employees” nationwide. “White House officials have exploited non-news media to spoon-feed unfiltered messaging, at times pure propaganda, into the public’s mouth. The Google-sponsored chat I mentioned – that came with a pre-selected audience and questions...

    BuzzFeed posted a video about the death of chickens called, "Foodies Kill Their Food For The First Time." In it, several "foodies," or people who like high-quality foods, kill their own chickens for the first time. BuzzFeed posted the video in order to bring attention to where food comes from and wonders aloud if people would be okay with eating meat if they knew where it was coming from. The video begins with the all caps text, "MORE THAN 23 MILLION CHICKENS ARE SLAUGHTERED IN THE UNITED STATES... EVERY DAY." The video then shows people crying over the idea of...

    Thursday criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his upcoming speech before the US Congress that was arranged without the knowledge of US President Barack Obama. Speaking at a memorial ceremony for former prime minister Ariel Sharon in the Negev, Peres said, "Bibi [Netanyahu] can make speeches at any place or date, but when the President of the United States asks him not to come before elections, he must respect that request." Peres also addressed the tension between Israel and Hezbollah after an attack that killed two IDF soldiers on Wednesday, saying that "both sides understand that there is no choice...

    Remember those Thanksgiving dinners when your slightly unhinged uncle would have one too many glasses of wine and start loudly declaring that the Democratic Party was the tool of the communists, until even the dyed-in-the-wool Republicans were walking out of the dining room? Well, as it turns out, your uncle wasn’t all that far off. At least not according to the chairman of the Communist Party USA, who claims that the Democratic Party is just another tool for the struggle of the proletariat and their Macbook-clad supporters. Che! In an article titled, “A radical third party? I agree!” CPUSA chairman...

    Progressives will always claim that no matter how badly their plans go wrong, at least their terrible policies were well-intentioned.The regimes that shot orphans, starved entire cities into submission and committed genocide were “caring” in comparison to the heartless Dickensian capitalists who did nothing for the poor except create cheap products and jobs. They might have killed millions, but their red hearts were in the right place. They didn’t just spend all their time gobbling caviar and diving into swimming pools full of all money like the millionaires of the West. Instead they gave speeches about Marxism-Leninism, killed anyone who...
