    IMEE PICCHI. December 2, 2016. As Breitbart Wages "War" On Kellogg’s, Advertisers Flee Breitbart News, an ultraconservative website that has served as a platform for the white nationalist “alt-right” movement, is touting its growing readership and “main street American values” as a reason advertisers should stick with it. Some marketers, however, are heading for the exits, directing their advertising dollars away from Breitbart amid the publication’s call for a boycott against Kellogg’s (K), which has pulled its ads from the site. That prompted Breitbart to declare “war” on Kellogg’s: Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow said on the site that “to blacklist Breitbart...

    The Daily Mail ^ | January 12, 2016 | Blake Neff
    A newly-released video shows a professor at the University of California, Merced (UC-Merced) teaching his students that 90 percent of terrorist attacks in America are conducted by white men who are "religiously motivated and politically conservative." WATCHThe video, recorded in October, was released by The College Fix. It shows professor Ross Avila lecturing his "Introduction to Psychology" class on the topic of heuristics, mental shortcuts people use when trying to assess information or solve problems. To illustrate his point, Avila said that most Americans assume Muslims are the country's largest terror threat because they haven't thought about the matter systematically....

    The senator claims on the campaign trail that he was the reason the Fort Hood soldiers shot in a 2009 attack were awarded Purple Hearts. Why that’s stretching the truth just a tad. Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential stump speech electrifies conservative crowds with a cocktail of growls, whispers, warnings of impending doom, and at least one claim of personal accomplishment so powerful, it often brings many in the audience to their feet.

    The issue for me regarding the Brian Williams controversy is whether he made a mistake or intentionally misled people by making a claim he knew was false, i.e., lied. To conclude that a mistake is actually a lie requires a lot of proof. Otherwise, if there is a possible explanation of an honest memory mistake, I give the person the benefit of the doubt. Williams said that in 2003, he was in a helicopter forced down by enemy fire — a mistaken recollection, as he told Stars and Stripes on Feb. 4. He said that the mistake was a result...

    MIT economist Jonathan Gruber “was paid almost $400,000 by this administration.”– Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), on Fox News’s “On the Record,” Nov. 12, 2014Republicans are demanding hearings into videos that have emerged in recent days of MIT professor Jonathan Gruber making impolitic remarks about the Affordable Care Act. Why should Gruber’s comments matter? Because Gruber is well-known in health-care circles as one of the intellectual godfathers of Obamacare and the very similar law in Massachusetts (sometimes called Romneycare), though people involved in ACA deny he was “an architect” of the ACA. (House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) even claimed she...

Dickinson, who apparently is not actually running for Congress, said he has a problem with her network as a whole. “Well, but no, what about me?

Of course, President Obama has to lead; it’s his superpower now, his armies to move, his stage. But the prior president gave every world leader, every member of Congress a reason to keep the dogs of war on a leash. The voice that stands out most by his silence, the one that grates with its public coyness, is Bush himself. He has refused to take a side in the Syrian conflict. The president, he said,...

Forget the comparisons to Watergate or even to classic TV sitcom’s “I know nothing; I see nothing” Hans Schultz. Oh so yesterday. The triage of scandals, which initially stunned Democrats and Obama apologists into uncharacteristic silence, has since been re-branded to be something quite different than it actually is. For this, they owe Groucho Marx a debt of gratitude. Lying and cover-ups regarding Benghazi; stomping on the First Amendment; the IRS criminally targeting American citizens? Time to roll out the “Groucho Defense:” Who are you going to...

    During an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said expanded background checks are "not enough," and private gun sales cannot continue because they allow terrorists to buy guns in the United States. "Can a terrorist currently buy a gun in this country? Yes. Can a felon? Yes. You go to a gun show and virtually no questions are asked," Feinstein claimed. Joe Scarborough chimed in later in the segment to echo Feinstein's claim, asserting, "So now we have al Qaeda terrorists saying, 'Kill Americans, it's easy, just go to gun shows, get an assault weapon.'"

President Obama used it last Wednesday, claiming: “as many as 40 percent of guns are purchased without a background check.” Vice President Biden and everyone from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal to USA Today repeatedly use it. That “fact” provided the principal support for his first announced gun-control proposal, “universal background checks.” But unless you include family inheritances and gifts as “purchases,” it is simply false.The Brady Act background checks currently prevent someone who buys from a federally licensed dealer from buying a gun...

    The Daily Mail ^ | 9 January 2013
    The United States has far more violent deaths than any other wealthy nation in part because there are so many residents who own guns and store them in unlocked places in their homes. The lax gun rules are a major contributor to the low life expectancy rate that Americans have compared to their global counterparts. That claim comes just weeks after the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and as politicians make calls for stricter gun controls. The United States has about six violent deaths per 100,000 residents and none of the 16 other countries included in the review...

The private sector did even better, adding 453,000 jobs versus previous estimates. ...

    Via BuzzFeed, five minutes of fun at the start of tonight’s debate. I agree with William Jacobson: In some ways, this is a tough subject for Brown to broach. To make the case effectively he's got to get into details about the debunked genealogy, her dubious explanations for identifying as Native American, and her insistence on doing so professionally at Harvard even though she didn’t meet the professional guidelines for it. That's hard or impossible to do in a 60-second opening statement; as it is, his argument that she's lying amounts to "c'mon, she obviously doesn't look Native American," which...

And that it would be harmful if — the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries, and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrest them all. I mean that was the legislation that Jim Sensenbrenner advanced a couple of years ago. She does know that it is a crime to be an illegal alien, right? Normally something that has the word “illegal” right there in its name is a big clue that it might not be legal. What’s next? Will mean old Republicans want to make car theft (undocumented vehicle procurement) or shoplifting (uncompensated one-way commerce) crimes too?</p>
  • The real reason liberals smear conservatives as racists

    There can be only one reason liberals instinctively call conservatives racists. Like Pavlov's dogs, they have been conditioned to do so by their masters in the Democrat-media complex. Ivan Petrovich Pavlov was a Russian scientist who won the Nobel Prize in 1904 for his studies of the digestive system. While studying the impact of saliva on digestion, he noticed that his test subjects - dogs - salivated even when there was no food present. Eventually, he realized the dogs were responding to the lab coats worn by his assistants. He expanded his experiments to determine the reason. ... His findings...

    Traditionally, Democrat candidates for President start slightly radical, then try to reassure Conservative America, get in a tangle and look like idiots. But this time may be different, because Barack Obama has stuck by his friend the militant preacher, refusing to disown him, and Hillary Clinton has gone mental. Her response to being caught lying to a military audience, when she invented a story about being under sniper fire in Bosnia, was to say it wasn't surprising she got some things wrong, seeing how she spoke millions of words every day. What a magnificent idea, that if you say lots...

  • Kos Traffic Numbers Inflated by 60% [ "Phony" Stats Report! ]

    Yesterday, I had the good “fortune” of being frontpaged on Daily Kos. The post sat atop the site for two hours. According to Google Analytics, the link produced 1,164 visitors yesterday. For the traffic behemoth Kos is portrayed as, that seems low, especially since he linked to two posts of mine. I went and looked at other notable traffic spikes this year, and this one isn’t really even close to some other blockbuster links. For instance, A Marc Ambinder link (linked to by Andrew Sullivan) to my 2008 Wire videowall produced 2,205 visits on June 5th. A link from the...

    I was just told by a Liberal fellow worker that just about every Republican member of the Senate or Congress is either under investigation or indictment. As for Democrats, well, squeaky clean of course. I asked for his source, and it's Newsweek (Liberal rag). Does anyone have the info on who is under investigation or indictment - Democrat and Republican?

    Try some honestyWe get the idea that politics is a blood sport. That things are often said both inside and outside Parliament that might not stand up to scrutiny in the cold light of day. That doesn't mean we like the idea, though. We'd prefer to hear our politicians put forward their programs and policies and explain to the Canadian public why their party's platform is worthy of support. We could do without the cheap shots and the innuendo that have become such a part of politics in Canada today. So anxious, though, are our politicians to score points that...

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2006-07-23 | (editorial page)
    A startling admission recently by Canada's former Liberal environment minister regarding the Kyoto accord hasn't received anywhere near the attention it deserves. That was a candid acknowledgment by federal Liberal leadership contender Stephane Dion -- literally the "Mr. Environment" of the federal Liberal party -- that Canada cannot meet the targets to lower greenhouse gas emissions the Liberals committed us to when they signed the Kyoto treaty. The story appeared on July 1 in the National Post, one reason it largely slipped under the public's radar, since everyone was out celebrating Canada's 139th birthday at the time. Dion conceded even...

    Thanks to documents recovered in Abu Musab 'al-Zarqawi's bombed out Headquarters, 104 terrorists have been killed and hundreds more taken prisoner. Dozens of weapons caches have been captured. But of almost equal importance is the insight we gained into 'al-Qaeda's state in Iraq. The 21st century's Ho Chi Minh despaired of the state of his terror organization. He was writing that America was winning the war and he wasn't replacing his combat losses. Do you remember how Liberal "Geniuses" went on and on about how we were "creating more terrorists"? Yeah right. Zarqawi complained about how he wasn't getting any...

    Liberals in America have been staging a new strategy on winning public policy debates. Simply provide spokespeople that no one is allowed to respond to. Ann Coulter had the gall to challenge that and let loose with some direct observations in her newest best-seller "GODLESS" and true to form liberals have been fomenting in response. The reason they do is not because it breaks some sacred respect that one should have for a grieving mother, wife, or relative. Rather the reason they are so outraged by this is because it simply stabs through the heart the strategy of hiding behind...

    NEW ORLEANS - The federal government's medical response to Hurricane Katrina was bungled by a lack of supplies and poor communication, according to a congressional report released Friday. The report, based in part on interviews with doctors who responded to the hurricane, says the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was unable to effectively set up field hospitals and handle the medical emergencies in the Louisiana Superdome, where thousands of evacuees were stuck for days after New Orleans flooded. "The entire system is broken and we need to fix it before the next major disaster strikes, whether it's another hurricane or...

    If you are a conservative at Smith, it is more than likely that you have been told at least once to "educate yourself." In an effort to be P.C. even in their criticisms of conservatives, the most common liberal dismissal of conservative beliefs is ignorance. According to liberals, all conflicting beliefs could be solved through education, which is really a nice way of saying "increased exposure to liberal brainwashing." However, it has long been a fact that when people are given the option to educate themselves, conservative beliefs consistently win out. Conservatives have long dominated the sale of political books,...
