  • Mika 'Disturbed' by Video of Purse Snatcher Getting Bus-ted

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    You've probably seen the video. In Chile, a man boards a bus and twice tries to rip a purse away from a woman. When he fails, he tries to flee, only to get his arm stuck in the door. Whereupon the driver subdues him with a few swings from his handy bat. When the bus finally stops, the police are there to greet the miscreant and lead him away. When Jimmy Kimmel played the clip on his show, the audience reacted with cheers. But when Morning Joe aired it today, Mika declared herself "disturbed." When Mika asked why the clip...
  • Politico's Poll and Conservative Strength: Conservatives Still Vastly Outnumber Liberals in America

    American Thinker ^ | 10/23/2014 | Bruce Walker
    Every national poll by every recognized polling organization shows that conservatives dramatically outnumber liberals in America. For a covertly leftist establishment media, complete with organs of subtle propaganda and selective misinformation, the best strategy for handling the uncomfortable fact of a conservative majority in America is to hide or at least contort it. Treating conservatives like a despised minority is the very heart of leftist demonology. The left purports to represent America and claims vast powers because it is the champion of ordinary people. Terms like “radical right wing” and “extreme conservative” are the essence of leftist rhetoric. It is...

    American Legislator ^ | 12-21-14 | Ben Wilterdink
    Recently, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Klein ruled that the city of Stockton, California could reduce the amount it was obligated to pay in pension costs and could even leave the state’s retirement system (CalPERS). The significance of this decision is difficult to overstate. Pensions were long thought to be absolutely sacrosanct and unable to be cut, even in bankruptcy, especially since pension obligations are specifically protected under state law. Judge Klein’s ruling has highlighted the fact that political promises must bend to the reality of numbers. The impetus for this ruling was another creditor of the city of Stockton that,...

    ...The Seattle Socialist Party is offering Web Developers employment at $13 an hour, despite pushing for a $20 minimum wage. Now, in a follow up interview, the party insists that it should not be held to its own standards. “We’re practicing what we’re preaching in terms of continuing to fight for the minimum wage,” Doug Barnes, the Freedom Socialist Party’s national secretary, told the Huffington Post. “But we can’t pay a lot more than $13." Apparently completely unaware of his own hypocrisy, Barnes added that he personally supports a $22 an hour minimum wage.

    There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much wished it could be. The former were called the Trads, and the latter, the Progs. It was the Progs who held dominion over this great land, and so it was they who wrote, or re-wrote, her history. Now, in this kingdom we must remember that Christianity, or “Christianism” as it would later be...

    WASHINGTON—Vice President Joe Biden ’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter. Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended. Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43...

    We’ve known liberals are cheap, miserly (dare I say niggardly?) in their approach to charity which actually requires giving one’s own money away instead of passing laws to force the rest of us to fund charitable causes. Those who followed politics during the embarrassment of the Clinton brothel years remember that Bill Clinton donated his used underwear to charity in order to gain a tax credit. This fits right in with new data on who gives and who does not give. We now have proof that liberals are cheap and conservatives are generous. A recent report from The Chronicle of...
  • Maryland Seeks Power to Double Tax Income

    American Legislator ^ | 10-13-14 | Ted Lafferty
    While it may seem unfair to pay income taxes twice, Maryland residents have been doing so for years. That’s because unlike most other states, Maryland’s tax code does not provide a full tax credit for taxes paid to other states. This means anyone in Maryland who earns money in another state will pay that state’s income taxes, only to have Maryland levee county-level income taxes, without credit or deduction, on the same income. The result is that Maryland residents are unfairly double-taxed on income they earn out-of-state. Fortunately, one couple in Maryland has had enough. The Wynnes, part owners of...

The unidentified vandal scrawled the word “asesino,” the Spanish word for “murderer,” in black ink atop the shoulder of the Argentine Marxist-Leninist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Greco said a police report has been filed and City Hall security personnel are reviewing surveillance camera footage. The exhibit, which went up Sept. 22 to honor Hispanic History Month, includes approximately 40 posters depicting Latino historical...

    Rather than participate in the national discussion involving the market place of ideas, some on the “progressive” side of the debate want to silence — or in one extreme case imprison — those who disagree with them. Consider the tactics and goals progressives have said they are using to win their arguments: Environmental activist Robert Kennedy Jr. actually said in an interview that he wished there was a law to imprison those who don’t believe in global warming. “So, if RFK Jr. wants to jail everyone who disagrees with him — that the sustainability and livability of the earth is...

He was trumpeted as a transformational leader who remade American politics by creating a new electoral map and a diverse voter coalition to shape the Democratic Party for the 21st century. But for now he has been reduced to something else: an isolated political figure who is viewed as a liability to Democrats in the very states where voters by the thousands had once stood to cheer him.

Last week, Jenkins helped those people move from the Dallas apartment where patient Thomas Duncan was staying. He said he did so to show the community that the disease could not be contracted through contact with people who are not showing symptoms of the disease. Jenkins said he has confronted fear of Ebola from parents at his daughter's elementary school who were concerned their children might contract the disease from his daughter because of Jenkins' contact...

Instead he suggested Obama has given up. Panetta said, "He [Obama] approaches things like a law professor in presenting a logic of his position. There is nothing wrong with that. We want to have a president who thinks through the issues. My experience in Washington is that logic alone doesn't work. Once you lay out a position, you are going to roll up...

    According to former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, the Democrats have a linguistics “Jedi” named George Lakoff (rhymes with back off), a Professor of Linguistics at U.C. Berkeley. He advises Democrats on how to win in the political arena by controlling the language.

The way liberals frame issues in narratives undermines conservative’s positions in a subtle way that lets Democrats easily defend their disastrous policies.Here are ten examples: 10) ObamaCare – At one point, the president embraced the word...

It is a formal movement to reshape America from 50 States with limited power to 2 States, each with full power. Of course it will be up to Americans to take the...

    It's not uncommon for many of us on the Right to refer, metaphorically of course, to liberals using epidemiological terms. Liberalism is infecting our land. Socialism is a disease that harms the body politic. Some have even likened progressives to viruses. Yet, unseemly as such language might appear to some, it's usually been considered hyperbole, exaggerated rhetoric designed to grab attention and perhaps even to arouse an emotional response. But who knew that there would come a day when such talk could be meant literally? Yet, that day has, unfortunately, came to America. As I write this, the Ebola scare...

New ideas? “We don’t need no stinking new ideas!” Nevertheless, when there aren’t enough greedy parasites in a particular area the Democrats feel compelled to make...

The new ad, embedded below, features Pete Tutmark, a former patrol sergeant and sheriff’s deputy. Tutmark criticizes what he calls a “broken” system that diverts resources from important crime-solving to drug arrests and urges his fellow Oregonians to vote yes on measure 91 this fall, which would legalize and regulate recreational marijuana use. “Last year in Oregon, there were 13,000 citations and arrests for marijuana,” he says in the ad. “That takes time, time better spent solving murders, rape cases, finding missing children....

Therefore, I might have to lock them up or kill them to ensure that Progress prevails. Until recently, the totalitarian impulse has been blessedly absent from American politics. Now, however, the American left has caught the totalitarian bug that infected Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Castro, and so many others. A case in point:...

A Liberal government led by Junior and sympathetic to terrorists would be dangerous On June 19, 2014, Bill C-24 received Royal Assent and was passed into law. Referred to as the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, the provisions are coming into force on staggered dates. Some of the amendments to the Citizenship Act took place immediately, some on Aug. 1, and others will come in on dates set by the Governor-in-Council.
  • The Illusion of Neutrality: The secular state cannot be neutral in matters of religion

    We have all heard what has come to be a liberal dictum, that the State must remain neutral as regards religion or irreligion. One can show fairly easily that the men who wrote our constitution had no such neutrality in mind, given the laws that they and their fellows subsequently passed, their habits of public prayer at meetings, and their common understanding that freedom without virtue, and virtue without piety, were chimeras. To show that that understanding persisted, all one need do is open every textbook for school children published for almost two hundred years; or recall that Catholic immigrants...

    So what can we expect from our detached-from-reality ignorance mongers? If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the second Great War needed to be fought, four conflicts aren’t exactly a scientific sample, and some could contend that these men were, to some extent, victims of timing and circumstance. It also should be said that with modernity’s characteristic flaw of relativism causing ever...

    Young girls (some as young as 11) kept in bondage to a sexual-slave ring run out of Rotherham, UK “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”—Ronald Reagan (1911-2004), 40th POTUS They were the ones turning a blind eye to the rape. And why were they turning a blind eye? Because of the ethnicity of the rapists. ...The girls were abandoned only partly because so many made a cowardly choice to let a crime go unreported when they could not think of a “non-racist” way to describe it. They...

    When talking about energy and environmental policy, it is a bit troublesome to watch just how recklessly big-government environmentalists unfairly and erroneously accuse individuals and organizations of the pro-free market persuasion of being “climate deniers.” Instead of engaging in thoughtful, substantive discussion, many of these environmental activists oftentimes resort to this tactic of public shaming in order to eliminate debate and to bully individuals and groups into supporting an ever-expansive federal regulatory scheme. There is a key distinction between climate change denial and having major concerns with a proposed EPA regulation that would place a significant financial burden on the...

    <p>The Democratic Party and the mainstream media joined to run interference for Barack Obama when he became a national figure. Obama was painted as a charismatic, competent, new kind of politician. The passage of time destroyed this image. Now, the public increasingly sees Obama as incompetent, untrustworthy and unmotivated.</p>

    Blue states have a problem. Although there are some recently notable exceptions, most vehemently oppose cutting taxes, favoring instead a tax-and-spend or top-down redistribution approach. They require high taxes to finance the pet projects they believe the market is too short-sighted to support, like Solyndra. At the same time, however, these big government states try to pursue goals of economic growth, even if they believe the best way to achieve growth is through central economic planning rather than free markets. Overwhelming economic evidence demonstrates that the best way to achieve robust economic growth is when citizens are able to save,...
  • Journalists in Screech Advocacy Mode

    It is amazing the degree to which the media can politicize -- always from a leftist perspective -- just about anything in the news. No matter what the issue, there's the spin, always the spin, especially in the "analysis" reports where "journalists" go in screech advocacy mode while projecting a sober, dispassionate evaluation. Burger King announced that it could no longer abide by our corporate tax rate, the highest in the industrial world, and was moving to Canada, so ABC's Diane Sawyer decided this was a betrayal of the company's civic responsibility, stating that Burger King now stands "accused of...

I gave her the Money back… same scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64. They Walk Among Us and Many Work Retail! I walked into a...

    They are impoverished in industry and suffer from severe poverties of honesty, decency and shame. Their fake poverty is as fake as their concern for the poor No group has been hit harder by the Obama economy than American liberals. From Marin County, where bundlers have had to struggle to scrape together a few ten grand bills to attend Obama fundraisers, to Washington D.C. whose bedroom communities now have seven of the ten highest household incomes in the country, poverty is hitting poor rich little liberals really hard. In 2006, Alaska had the highest household income. But voters chose Obama...
