  • SEATTLE'S MINIMUM WAGE CRASH: $15 to ZERO! Profit's Take A Nosedive!

    Seattle, Washington, one of the strongest remaining bastions of liberal philosophy left in the country, passed a phased-in $15 minimum wage law earlier this year. The highest minimum wage in the country. The vote was unanimous and the throng outside cheered, but for many this is a loss from which they will never recover. It is a blow to the profitability of business that they just can't take.

    With rape allegations against Bill Cosby mounting, supermodel Janice Dickinson tells ET in a new interview that the comedian sexually assaulted her in 1982. Dickinson, now 59, recalls first meeting Cosby, now 77, when her agent set up a meeting with him to hire her for a role on The Cosby Show. After they had dinner, she says their next conversation was when he called her out of the blue while she was in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Following her stay in rehab, Dickinson says Cosby reached out to her during a trip to Bali and had her travel...

    A few years back I worked with a guy who was probably a genius. In fact, he often struggled in life interacting with people because his brain simply performed at a higher level than the average person. I remember asking him what his biggest belief was in making life decisions and he always, without fail, told me “think of the bigger picture.” And while I’ve always tried to be a big picture thinker, knowing him when I did helped me understand it a little better. He always told me the biggest issue he faced when dealing with people was that...

    A couple weeks ago, The Daily Caller completed its alphabetical tour de force showing that racism has seeped into every nook and cranny of American life including superhero movies, the weather and the very air we breathe. It was hard, arduous work. Now, some 19 articles later — and still feeling grimy and contaminated from multiple visits to obscure sites like Salon deep in the bowels of the Internet — it’s time to celebrate. It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the greatest hits of all the things someone, somewhere has deemed racist. A is for academic freedom, which...

    Students and professors at DePauw University in Indiana met last week to voice their concerns about a lack of "diversity" and large amounts of racist "microaggression" on campus. A professor at DePauw wasted no time blaming people like himself for the problems the campus is facing. Professor of Sociology David Newman stated, “I’m a white man. I’m a white middle-class man. I’m a white middle-class heterosexual man. I’m on the right side of the equation. This is my fault. I didn’t do anything directly, but this is my fault. My silence makes this my fault.” Senior Jonathan Reyes, a member...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The fate of a little-noticed ballot measure in strongly Democratic Oregon serves as a warning to President Barack Obama and his party about the political perils of immigration policy. Even as Oregon voters were legalizing recreational marijuana and expanding Democratic majorities in state government, they decided by a margin of 66-34 to cancel a new state law that would have provided driver's licenses to people who are in the United States illegally. Obama is considering acting on his own, as early as this week, to possibly shield from deportation up to 5 million immigrants now living...

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Friday unveiled data showing that many Americans with health insurance bought under the Affordable Care Act could face substantial price increases next year — in some cases as much as 20 percent — unless they switch plans. The data became available just hours before the health insurance marketplace was to open to buyers seeking insurance for 2015. An analysis of the data by The New York Times suggests that although consumers will often be able to find new health plans with prices comparable to those they now pay, the situation varies greatly from state...

    Seven years ago I was talking to a longtime Democratic operative on Capitol Hill about a politician who was in trouble. The pol was likely finished, he said. I was surprised. Can’t he change things and dig himself out? No. “People do what they know how to do.” Politicians don’t have a vast repertoire. When they get in a jam they just do what they’ve always done, even if it’s not working anymore. This came to mind when contemplating President Obama. After a devastating election, he is presenting himself as if he won. The people were not saying no to...

    A Republican congressman known as a pit bull in Washington said Thursday that he doesn't support the idea of impeachment proceedings against President Obama because winning that fight would elevate the vice president to the Oval Office. 'Have you met Joe Biden?' South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy asked during a Fox News Channel interview. Impeachment talk has swirled around Washington since the president announced that an executive order overhauling America's immigration system is imminent. But some in the GOP see Biden as Obama's hedge against removal from office, since much of his public exposure has come in conjunction with a...

    Liberals love blacks but they love them like a fantasy football team, not like human beings. Black poverty is the crux of the leftist argument. The ethos goes: if you’re a Democrat, you want to help the impoverished African-Americans. If you’re a Republican, you want them to be attacked by German shepherds. As far as actual black culture goes, liberals are disappointed that they aren’t all wearing corduroy blazers with elbow patches and listening to NPR. They believe black culture has been hit with “systemic” (gawd, they love that word) problems, including a lack of education when it comes to...

The U.S. Marshals Service program, which became fully functional around 2007, operates Cessna aircraft from at least five metropolitan-area airports, with a flying range covering most of the U.S. population, according to people familiar with the program.

PETA's director of marketing innovation, Joel Bartlett, explained, "Priority number one is that no animals can be harmed in PETA's Minecraft." PETA said that they decided to create a PETA server and headquarters in Minecraft because many...

Hundreds of flags mark the vacant land where veterans want to build a permanent memorial. It started with a few flags two weeks ago and now there are many. The land is owned by the Greendale School District across the street and it doesn't want a permanent memorial on the site. That has one loyal Marine veteran very concerned.

    To Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), "white cracker" isn't derogatory -- it's a "term of endearment." The longtime congressman ruffled some feathers last year when he told the Daily Beast that members of the tea party were the same group of "white crackers" who tried to fight desegregation in the South during the Civil Rights movement. In a Monday interview with HuffPost Live, Rangel expressed surprise that those comments received backlash. "I thought that was a term of endearment, you know," Rangel said. "[The tea party is] so proud of their heritage and all the things they believe in."

Perry is a social conservative. According to the Dartmouth, the student newspaper, Perry was there to discuss the midterms, border security, energy initiatives and foreign policy. There was a Q&A session–and that’s when things devolved. Both presidents of the College Democrats and Republicans condemned the actions of...

Gruber, the MIT professor who served as a technical consultant to the Obama administration during Obamacare’s design, also made clear during a panel quietly captured on video that the individual mandate, which was only upheld by the Supreme Court because it was a tax, was not actually a tax. “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not...

Business Insider was provided a data set of federal campaign contributions dating all the way back to 1980, making the sample size considerable. The data set confirms that media, academia, and the entertainment industry are some of the most liberal professions in America. The findings were provided by CROWDPAC, a non-partisan analytics firm based out of California. “In compiling all this...

In every conceivable arena, any non-conformist theories against progressive shibboleths—such as the current war over global warming—receive the most disrespectful and wholesale trashing. The emotional tenor is sheer disgust and fury, while those in intellectual opposition are held in the same esteem as a brain-dead fetal piglet.

    When you suffer a defeat, sometimes the only thing you can do is crawl into your dark place and stay there until you’re ready to come back out and get on with your life. Understandably, many Democrats seem to be going through that process after Tuesday’s midterm elections resulted in massive gains for Congressional Republicans. The GOP retained power over the House, took control of the Senate and further diminished President Obama‘s relevancy. That’s a lot to take in. Here are five ways Democrats are consoling themselves: 1. Denying the election’s impact, as CNN’s Sally Kohn and MSNBC’s Joy Reid...

No.” The piece says that, with an overwhelming victory, Republicans will say the election was “an endorsement from...

    It’s fair to say discussion got off track about an ordinance proposed by Stuckart that said, “no Spokane City officer or employee shall inquire into the immigration status of any person, or engage in activities designed to ascertain the immigration status of any person.” The new law affirms policies already in place in the Spokane Police Department. According to the department’s manual, “the immigration status of individuals alone is not a matter for police action. … Confidence in this commitment will increase the effectiveness of the Department in protecting and serving the community.” The city ordinance passed by a 5-2...

    <p>Facts now pale in comparison with the higher truths of progressivism.</p> <p>Do bothersome facts matter anymore?</p> <p>Not really. This is an age when Americans were assured that the Affordable Care Act lowered our premiums. It cut deductibles. Obamacare allowed us to keep our doctors and health plans, and lowered the deficit. Those fantasies were both demonstrably untrue and did not matter, given the supposedly noble aims of health care reform.</p>

    Here's an interesting article thanks to Jed Kolko, Chief Economist at Trulia Trends via Washington Post Wonkblog: The most expensive housing markets in the U.S. are also the most liberal. The relationship between housing affordability and politics in the US is startlingly strong as these charts by Jed Kolko shows. Median asking price in dollars per square foot is on the vertical axis. Margin for Obama over Romney in the 2012 election is on the horizontal axis. With the exception of Orange County California, all of the high priced counties voted for Obama. The Washington Post notes .... Nine of...

    Hear the story of George Norris, a 67-year old hobbyist, was convicted and sent to prison for failure to comply with obscure laws involving his small business – selling orchids from his backyard. George Norris, a 67-year old hobbyist, developed a small business selling imported orchids out of his backyard greenhouse. Norris did his best to make sure he was in compliance with laws and regulations regarding his hobby. That’s why he was surprised to come home one day to find his house being raided by armed federal agents. After spending his life savings and borrowing what he could to...
  • USA Today’s Susan Page: Obama administration most ‘dangerous’ to media in history

    The Washington Post ^ | 10/27/2014 | Erik Wemple
    At some point, a compendium of condemnations against the Obama administration’s record of media transparency (actually, opacity) must be assembled. Notable quotations in this vein come from former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said, “It is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering”; New York Times reporter James Risen, who said, “I think Obama hates the press”; and CBS News’s Bob Schieffer, who said, “This administration exercises more control than George W. Bush’s did, and his before that.” USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page has added a sharper edge to...
  • Common Core is reason enough NOT to vote for Democrats

    Common Core could be called ObamaEd. It's as much a signature issue as ObamaCare. Indeed, it has the same goals: more government power, more control of individual citizens, more jobs and money under White House control. In short, Common Core is Obama's baby. A Democrat who opposed Common Core would be accused of stabbing the President in the back. As a practical political matter, Democrats cannot be against Common Core. And that alone is ample justification for keeping them out of office. Common Core is a nightmare that everyone should be against.If you don't know how bad it is, check...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 10/27/2014 | Matt K. Lewis
    Things appear to be tightening in Maryland, where a poll leaked to The Daily Caller shows the gubernatorial race is “extremely close – only 2 points, 46 to 44, separate Democratic Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown and Republican small businessman Larry Hogan.” One should always be cognizant of outliers — and it’s worth noting that this survey was commissioned by the Maryland Republican Party. It’s also true that polls conducted by Gonzales this cycle have tended to show the race tighter than others — but as the Washington Post noted, Gonzales “does not have a partisan track record.” With those caveats...

    The ACLU has filed a lawsuit that asks for a permanent injunction against a Miami-Dade ordinance that states that sex offenders are not allowed to live within approximately half a mile, or 2,500 feet, of a school. The suit was filed this week. The suit, Doe, et al. v. Miami-Dade County, et al., argues that the ordinance puts undue pressure on sex offenders and pedophiles, forcing them to likely become homeless because of the law. The lawsuit alleges that "The law prohibits former offenders from living 2,500 feet (almost half a mile) from any building the county labels a "school,"...

    The Political Insider ^ | 20/23/2014 | Editor
    Any student of American politics is familiar with just how corrupt politics are in Chicago, Illinois. It is widely believed, for example, that without the mafia’s influence in the area, John F. Kennedy would have never been elected President. But today, voter fraud has to be done on a high-tech, digital level. Because computers can be reprogrammed, learning about a machine that REQUIRES you to vote for Democrats is chilling. Below is Republican State House candidate Jim Moynihan’s description of what it was like trying to vote for himself in early elections… Only to see the final vote be placed...

    A Silicon Valley tech company that reportedly made $200 million last quarter was importing foreign workers from India and paying them $1.21 an hour. According to the Labor Department, "about eight employees of Fremont-based Electronics For Imaging [EFI] were flown in from India and worked 120-hour weeks to help with the installation of computers at the company's headquarters." NBC Bay Area noted that "the employees were paid their regular hourly wage in Indian rupees, which translated to $1.21." EFI claimed it "unintentionally overlooked laws that require even foreign employees to be paid based on local US standards." The company reportedly...
  • Dems on FEC move to regulate internet campaigns, blogs, Drudge

    In a surprise move late Friday, a key Democrat on the Federal Election Commission called for burdensome new rules on internet-based campaigning, prompting the Republican chairman to warn that the left wants to regulate conservative political sites and even news outlets like the Drudge Report. Democratic FEC Vice Chair Ann M. Ravel announced plans to begin the process to win regulations on internet-based campaigns and videos, currently free from most of the FEC’s rules. “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long over due,” she said. The powerplay followed a deadlocked 3-3 vote...

    WATCH: SEN. MARK UDALL BOTCHES MLK QUOTE: 'WE JUDGE PEOPLE BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR COLOR' Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) flubbed a Martin Luther King Jr. quote on Thursday, during an event. "In 2008 and 2012, we showed that Dr. Martin Luther King had it right," Udall began, "which is that in America, at our best, we judge people by the content of their color…" he began, before acknowledging that he had messed up, and correcting it.
