  • Do Black Lives Really Matter to Liberals?

    American Thinker ^ | 12/19/2014 | Tom Trinko
    If black lives matter, and we all know they do, we need to work to end the unnecessary and early deaths of black people.  It’s not enough to look at one minor source of black mortality – shootings by law enforcement officers – and ignore the reasons for the vast majority of black deaths. While hard numbers are not readily available, the best estimates available put the total number of people killed by the police across the country in any given year at significantly less than 1,000.  For example, the best estimate for 2011 shows that the police killed...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 12-17-14 | Rachel Stoltzfoos
    Fourteen states cut taxes in 2014, including six traditionally blue states, according to a new report by the American Legislative Exchange Council. To make the groups list, a state must substantially lower taxes at the state level in a broad and neutral manner that does not pick winners and losers, and is not offset by other tax increases. 2014 includes the blue states of New York, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Maryland. The types of tax changes that were passed in 2014 suggest that many states are setting the stage for broader and more fundamental tax changes in the...

    Activist turned terrorist Bill Ayers spoke with Iranian news agency Fars News last week, and called the United States a terrorist nation. Ayers is probably best known for his own terrorist activities with the Weather Underground during the 1960s and 1970s. When speaking about what constitutes terrorism and a terrorist state, Ayers said: U.S. is indeed a terrorist nation. Then he added: Its also the greatest purveyor of violence on earth over the past half century, and the foremost threat to world peace today.

    Winston Churchill apocryphally said if you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain. Of course, he didnt say it. But if you choose to believe that anyway, youd have a lot of support from young liberals. Theres something wrong with liberalsan immaturity of thought and a wonton ignorance of sometimes-hard truths. The reason that quote is so popular is simple: youth is full of exuberance and impulsiveness, but lacking in wisdom. World peace, Kumbaya, and Star Trek are banging around in young peoples...

Over the past few hours, though, its turned into a civil war among Democrats, especially between progressives in Congress and the White House.

As noted in an update in the earlier post, Obama sent his...

    Who is a hero? In todays America, it is someone who chooses a military career, puts on a uniform, and prepares for war. Placing soldiers and veterans on this kind of pedestal is a relatively new phenomenon. Past generations of Americans saw soldiers as ordinary human beings. They were like the rest of us: big and small, smart and dumb, capable of good and bad choices. Now we pretend they are demi-gods. One reason Americans have come to view soldiers as our only protectors is that we have accepted the idea that our country is under permanent threat from fanatics...

    Following his on-duty shooting of robbery suspect Michael Brown in August, Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson was targeted by protesters who automatically assumed the white officer was motivated by racism instead of a legitimate threat on his life. When a grand jury privy to the details of this incident determined the veteran officer should not be charged in the shooting, threats against his life only increased as rioters looted and destroyed businesses in the St. Louis suburb. Amid the civil unrest, New York Times reporter Julie Bosman stoked tensions by releasing the name of the street on which Wilson...

    Obama went to pains to note that his executive order, giving five million illegal immigrants amnesty, would not qualify them for federal benefits. But new reports are casting doubt on Obama's claims. Despite claims to the contrary, Obama's amnesty will likely give millions of illegals access to Medicare, Social Security, and other benefits programs, several sources say. According to The Washington Post, Obama's amnesty order will give millions of illegals the status of being "lawfully present" in the USA. This status will require them to pay taxes, but as White House spokesman Shawn Turner notes, "If they pay in, they...

At the time I didn't like it, but, judging from today's politics, it may have been a good move. The Democrats are acting like the typical blue-bloods of history.

And yes, 63 percent of Latinos and 66 percent of Asian- Americans voted for Democratic candidates for Congress in the midterms. The executive order could solidify and expand that support for years to come. But Latinos and Asian-Americans made up only 11 percent of the electorate. Even if immigration were the only...

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. Cant he change things and dig himself out? No. People do what they know how to do. Politicians dont have a vast repertoire. When they get in a jam they just do what theyve always done, even if its 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...
  • 10 Black Things Liberals Just Don't Understand

    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 youre a Democrat, you want to help the impoverished African-Americans. If youre a Republican, you want them to be attacked by German shepherds. As far as actual black culture goes, liberals are disappointed that they arent 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...

    Elizabeth Warren gets rock-star reception at liberal donors confab By KENNETH P. VOGEL Elizabeth Warren insists she has no interest in running for president in 2016, but the rich liberals to whom she spoke Thursday afternoon seemed unwilling to take no for an answer. The Massachusetts senator got a rock stars welcome during a closed-door speech to major donors, one of whom interrupted her by yelling Run, Liz, Run! Warren drew multiple standing ovations during her talk, held in a banquet room at Washingtons Mandarin Oriental hotel during the annual winter meeting of the Democracy Alliance, a club of major...

    WASHINGTONThe Justice Department is scooping up data from thousands of cellphones through fake communications towers deployed on airplanes, a high-tech hunt for criminal suspects that is snagging a large number of innocent Americans, according to people familiar with the operations. 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. Planes are equipped with devicessome known as dirtboxes to law-enforcement officials because of the initials of the Boeing Co. unit that produces themwhich...

    PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has created a headquarters, gardens, and abandoned circuses and slaughterhouses. And this isn't in real life; they've done this in the massively popular Minecraft. And just as you might expect from PETA, people are not allowed to harm digital chickens or pigs on their game server. How could pretend animals being hurt possibly matter? 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...

    GREENDALE -- A battle over where to build a veterans memorial in Greendale is growing. On Monday a Marine veteran took matters into his own hands to honor our veterans. 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. "I've had people honking at me, waiving at me, shaking my...

    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."
