  • Hillary Clinton’s million little lies

    The New York Post ^ | 11/28/2015 | Michael Walsh
    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary, the conqueror of Mount Everest — even though she was already 6 years old when he made his famous ascent. On a visit to war-torn Bosnia in 1996, she claimed she and her entourage landed under sniper fire and had to run “with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base” — although videos of her arrival show her waltzing serenely across the tarmac, waving to the crowd. She blamed the 2012 attack on American diplomatic and intelligence-gathering installations in Benghazi on...
  • Fate of ObamaCare co-ops uncertain after half collapse

    The fate of a network of alternative “co-op” health plans started under ObamaCare remains uncertain going into 2016, after half of them collapsed amid deep financial problems. The co-ops are government-backed, nonprofit health insurers propped up with over $2 billion in taxpayer loans. Twelve of the 23 co-ops established under the Affordable Care Act, though, have gone or are expected to go under by the end of the year, leaving customers who used them scrambling for coverage and taxpayer money at risk. But, as lawmakers on Capitol Hill demand answers on what’s being done, the Obama administration is offering few...

"All we hear of ISIS is puritanical & punitive; is there nothing celebratory & joyous? Or is query naive?"

    So, how do you win an argument against someone who thinks you're evil? Who thinks you're greedy, selfish, wrong, racist, and, like I said, evil? Don't ask me, I'm evil (but sexy). But last week, I was walking with a friend of mine, a real-estate guy named Joe -- and he asked me what I thought of Andrew Cuomo. I said that I thought he was weak, and waffling way too much on fracking (which is partly responsible for a welcome move toward energy independence). I believe we should be fracking, and helping out the rest of New York State,...

    Looking back at the unrest that followed Freddie Gray's death, Baltimore voters see events differently than do voters statewide, a new poll shows.City voters are less likely to sympathize with police, and they are more likely to see joblessness and racism as a cause of April's unrest, according to a poll of likely voters conducted for The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore.Those living outside the city are more likely to blame "a lack of personal responsibility among residents" for the city's ills.The divided opinions were most pronounced when respondents were asked for their opinions of how Baltimore State's...

    Note: This "Thanksgiving classic" first appeared in 2013 but is well worth a review. American tradition sets aside every fourth Thursday in November as a time for people to thank God for their blessings, eat too much, and toss the football around. Liberals have started a new tradition in recent years that I don’t like nearly as much—pushing their political agenda at the dinner table. In days gone by, civility dictated that politics was not on the menu. But no longer! Liberals now consider Thanksgiving the perfect opportunity to get preachy with their loved ones.

    This is news from Louisiana on Sunday. Seventeen people were shot but survived when gunfire erupted on on a playground where a block party was going in New Orleans. If you did not hear about it, do not be surprised. It was barely news. It is amazing to think that there was not a huge media blitz, that there were not the standard outrageous, grandstanding tweets, or the ridiculous parade of pseudo-experts on CNN and MSNBC to spend hours talking about gun control. The endless blog posts, the overwrought editorials. None of those. And why is that? Here is a...

    We're in a world today increasingly defined by chaos. At home it's on our college campuses. Abroad it's spreading across the Middle East and spilling over into Europe. Who do we have to thank for it all? Liberals and moral relativists in power in our country and Europe. Liberals have led the way to destroy all sense of moral clarity in our nation, all objective sense of right and wrong and all sense of authority. What's the common ground of these distant and seemingly totally disconnected worlds -- American college campuses and a chaotic Islamic Middle East? In both places,...

    (Conservative Post ) U.S. military pilots who have returned from the fight against the Islamic state in Iraq are confirming that they were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordnance on terror targets because they could not get clearance to launch a strike, according to a leading member of Congress. Strikes against the Islamic state (also known as ISIS or ISIL) targets are often blocked due to an Obama administration policy to prevent civilian deaths and collateral damage, according to Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The policy is being blamed for allowing...

    Where does Bobby Jindal go to get his reputation back? The Louisiana governor and former presidential candidate took some heat following last January's Charlie Hebdo attack when he spoke about Muslim no-go zones in Europe. No-go zones are Muslim enclaves, completely separate from civil law and authority, run according to street justice and Muslim tradition. Jindal was quickly rebuked by political commentators and even the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who insisted that "no-go zones" are fictional. "Jindal condemns imaginary no-go zones" wrote Steve Benen on Rachel Maddow's MaddowBlog. A Washington Post headline mused, "Bobby Jindal Won’t Back Down on...

    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    UnitedHealth Group, the country’s largest health insurer, announced on Thursday that it was expecting to lose $600 million on Obamacare policies in 2016 from the health insurance exchange websites, and may terminate its Obamacare business by 2017. This was a sudden turnabout for the company. It was just a month ago that the company had said in an earnings call that they expected to expand their Obamacare coverage in 2017. According to Dave Wichmann, president and CFO, on October 15: The annual care ratio is being modestly affected by the performance of our new [Obamacare] public exchange benefit programs which...

    The terrorists were telling the world all we need to know about the threat we face.

But they are counting on the American people being stupid when it comes to world affairs. And there's very little to suggest they won't be successful in that endeavor. Be it the president saying ISIS is "contained" hours before the group unleashed evil on the streets of Paris, or the secretary of state saying the Paris attacks were crazy, unlike the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, where there was "legitimacy" and a "rationale" to them, nothing they say can...

    **SNIP** Mocking Republicans over this-as liberals spent much of yesterday doing on my Twitter stream-seems absurdly out of touch to a lot of people. Not just wingnut tea partiers, either, but plenty of ordinary centrists too. It makes them wonder if Democrats seriously see no problem here. Do they care at all about national security? Are they really that detached from reality? The liberal response to this should be far more measured. We should support tight screening. Never mind that screening is already pretty tight. We should highlight the fact that we're accepting a pretty modest number of refugees. In...

    Before there were the Paris terror attacks that changed everything and the second Democratic presidential debate that changed nothing, much of America had been transfixed by the scene playing out on college campuses across the country: black students and their allies demanding an insulation from racial hostility, full inclusion and administrative responsiveness. There was a part of the debate around those protests that I have not been able to release other than by writing here, one step off the news, but hopefully in step with the history of this moment. Last week I heard artist Ebony G. Patterson talking about...

Charming as ever, Bill O'Reilly's bloodhound Jesse Watters went to the University of Missouri to hector students about race, gender and sexuality. Watters' stuck to his shtick, using "common sense" interpretations of phrases with specific meanings to prove that college campuses are no place for men-of-the-people. For example, he asked one woman if he was in her "safe space," and when she said he wasn't, he took a step closer to her and asked, "what about now?" Deliberately confusing the concept...

Dan Kimmel, a software developer and self-described "business process expert" from Burnsville, Minn., posted a tweet Saturday night that said "ISIS isn't necessarily evil. It is made up of people doing what they think is best for their community. Violence is not the answer, though." His tweet came a day after attacks in Paris left 128 dead and at least 350 injured. The Islamic State claimed responsibility. Kimmel has since deleted the statement and...

Since 2009, Obama has admitted more than 250,000 Muslims each year, via family reunification sought by new Muslim citizens and government invites to Muslims fleeing wars in the chaotic Islamic heartland of the Middle East. In 2013, for example, Obama’s government admitted 280,276 people from Muslim-majority countries where the notion of jihad against non-Muslims is a conventional belief. But many migrants have brought their belief in jihad into the...

    It all goes downhill after 30 — at least when it comes to happiness. “Adults over 30 are less happy than their predecessors,” concludes a study published online Thursday in the journal Social Psychology and Personality Science, which examined happiness data from more than 50,000 adults, gleaned from the General Social Survey, carried out by NORC at the University of Chicago, a nonpartisan, independent research organization, which has collected information about American adults since 1972. From 2010 to 2014, adults over 30 had an average happiness score of just 2.18, compared with 2.24 a decade ago. That’s significant considering happiness...

    Washington (AFP) - The Internet was supposed to facilitate better exchange between the public and news media. But vile and hateful comments changed all that. In the face of rising vitriol -- attacks, bigotry and general nastiness -- news organizations are increasingly throwing in the towel on online comments. Last month, Vice Media's Motherboard news site turned off reader comments, saying "the scorched earth nature of comments sections just stifles real conversation." It instead began taking "letters to the editor" to be screened by staff. Vox Media's online news site The Verge said in July it was "turning off comments...

    When I arrived in New York City 28 years ago to begin my national radio program, my objective was to have the most-listened-to show in the country. At that time, the national broadcast media included three television networks and CNN. That was it. There were 125 radio stations doing talk radio, and I started on 56 of them. No one had ever succeeded in syndicating a national daytime radio show, and I was predicted to fail, too. But I didn’t. What was different about my show was that I was the only conservative voice in national broadcast media. I was...
  • Reevely: Tolls are coming to Ontario's HOV lanes

    More tolls are coming to Ontario roads, Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca said Monday, with details on the province’s plans due in the next couple of months.Del Duca was talking about a report by a group of environmentally minded policy types calling themselves “the Ecofiscal Commission” that says road tolls are the only way to handle worsening congestion. Particularly, the report calls for adding tolls that would allow vehicles that would not otherwise qualify to use existing high-occupancy vehicle lanes.“Road use has traditionally been freely available to anyone with a driver’s licence, and the open-access nature of roads makes them...
  • Debt ceiling lifted, and the same day, debt jumps $339B

    The U.S. national debt jumped $339 billion on Monday, the same day President Obama signed into law legislation suspending the debt ceiling. That legislation allowed the government to borrow as much as it wants above the $18.1 trillion debt ceiling that had been in place. The website that reports the exact tally of the debt said the U.S. government owed $18.153 trillion last Friday, and said that number surged to $18.492 on Monday. The increase reflects an increasingly common pattern that can be seen in the total U.S. debt level when the debt ceiling is reached.

    What matters, rather, is the strength of the longing. Modern liberalism is best understood as a movement of would-be believers in search of true faith. For much of the 20th century it was faith in History, especially in its Marxist interpretation. Now it’s faith in the environment. Each is a comprehensive belief system, an instruction sheet on how to live, eat and reproduce, a story of how man fell and how he might be redeemed, a tale of impending crisis that’s also a moral crucible. In short, a religion without God. I sometimes wonder whether the journalists now writing about...

    Rachel Dolezal has finally admitted that she’s white. The disgraced former president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP acknowledged her racial background during an intense interview on Fox’s “The Real” on Monday. “I acknowledge that I was biologically born white to white parents, but I identify as black,” Dolezal said at the conclusion of an intense round of questioning from the show’s all-minority, all-female panel. The 37-year-old civil rights activist made national headlines in June when it was revealed that she had falsely claimed to be black for years. Dolezal’s white parents, who live in Montana, told reporters at...
  • Did Premier Kathleen Wynne pay off the police?

    Ever since Caledonia in 2006 when natives took over a sub development, it has been no secret that the Ontario Provincial Police gladly do the bidding of the provincial Liberal government. But certain facts revealed recently lead to the question of whether or not the Wynne government made any payments to the OPP or more precisely the police union, the Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA). Recently, the day after the federal election where Kathleen’s boy Justin Trudeau was awarded with a majority government, the Globe and Mail revealed the provincial Liberals made a $1million payout to a teachers’ union to...
  • Why Liberals Identify with Criminals

    American Thinker ^ | 31 Oct 2015 | Tom Trinko
    Liberals hate cops, honest citizens with guns, and hard sentencing laws because liberals identify with criminals. When visiting a Federal prison Obama summarized the view of liberals when he said: “These are young people who made mistakes that aren’t that different than the mistakes I made and the mistakes that a lot of you guys made." While the people in the prison he was talking about were really drug dealers and violent felons, Obama, was repeating the liberal lie that the prisons are full of folks who just smoked a joint and got caught. Liberals are five times more likely...

    Chicago has a high school with just 13 ninth graders. That’s the entire freshman class: 13. This isn’t a specialty school, or a school for expelled students, or an alternative school. It’s a regular Chicago public high school. Just 13 freshmen signed up this year to attend Austin Business and Entrepreneurship Academy High School on the city’s predominantly black West Side. And Austin Business is not alone. Two other high schools located inside the same building have enrolled just 20 and 24 freshmen each. Three separate principals oversee the three schools. Then there’s Hirsch Metropolitan High School on 79th and...
