    understanding the threat ^ | February 26, 2017
    The new National Security Advisor Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond McMaster and the Counter-Terrorism advisor to the President of the United States Sebastian Gorka both unequivocally state the terrorist threat America faces has nothing to do with true Islam. Both men are catastrophically wrong and, therefore, are leading America down a disastrous road towards defeat. The New York Times, Guardian, and CNN all report Lt General McMaster told members of the National Security Council Thursday he felt radical Islamic terrorism was an unhelpful way to describe terrorism because becoming a terrorist is actually un-Islamic in the first...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 2/27/2017 | Staff
    Meia Bias: President George W. Bush has issued a full-throated defense of the media's role in modern society. He's being way too generous. "I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. Power can be very addictive," Bush said in remarks on NBC's "Today." "We need an independent media to hold people like me to account," he said. Yes, we agree wholeheartedly. But he seemed to imply today's media were fulfilling that role. They aren't. And there's no better example than Bush's own two terms in office. While we deeply admire the former president for not holding a grudge,...

    1.Democrats are confused by the fact that they were bested by a political figure they see as an empty suit with a pedigree famous for little more than tweeting. If you cant beat em, join em. Its been hard to avoid the contrived, media-driven campaign to fabricate Chelsea Clinton into a figure of political and cultural relevance. Take for example the New York Times book review, which dug into Clintons literary preferences. Bet you didnt know that the scion of the Clinton family first read Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451 in the seventh grade and it still makes me uncomfortable, even...

    George Lakoff vividly recalls where he was and what he was doing the night Donald Trump was elected president. We were having some tacos, said Lakoff, a professor of linguistics at UC Berkeley. I felt pretty bad afterward. And it wasnt just the tacos. A lot of people had heartburn that night, unable to understand how such a uniquely unqualified candidate could be elected to the highest office in the free world. Lakoff understood exactly what had occurred. Why was it that all the polls were wrong? asked Lakoff, speaking to a packed auditorium Thursday night at San Franciscos Commonwealth...

    Actor Bradley Whitford did not hold back in his response to Ivanka Trump's call for "religious tolerance." The actor, best known for his "West Wing" role, slammed President Donald Trump, calling him a "racist" while also tweeting that Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner enable hatred. "Your father is a racist birther. Steve Bannon an anti-Semitic opportunist," Whitford tweeted. "You and your husband are enabling hatred." He also added, "F--k your shoes," referring to Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessories lines.

The decision was foolishly meant to curb criticism, but unfortunately the decision only gave the left more ammunition to prove that Trump is not a good leader, either he makes bad choices in hiring or weak in that he listened to bad advice. Either way, he has opened the floodgates of wrath. Bad advice to oust Flynn...he should have given all his critics the middle finger and told the press that...

All that is left between Sessions and being Attorney General is the final vote in the Senate for final confirmation. Once Sessions gets in, the fur is going to fly! The democrats know this, and they have done everything possible to bar Sessions from confirmation. They used an obscure rule to delay Sessions vote, which was supposed to happen Tuesday. Democrats on the committee gave lengthy speeches opposing him, triggering a rule that doesnt allow the panel to be in session for two hours past the state...

A more realistic adage related to food says that if there is ever any sort of a question about food, toss it; no meal is worth major stomach grief. In the case of Steve Mnuchin, the take I'm getting is that there are too many question marks in the picture and at least a couple of them are too big; in my view, the guy's nomination should...

A downbeat-looking Sasha and Malia departed Air Force One for what is likely the last time when they touched down at the Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Monday. Malia was wrapped up in a red coat and lace-up ankle boots, while Sasha kept warm in a fleece-lined denim jacket and knee-high boots. Following close behind them were Obama and Michelle, both of whom coordinated in black and gray ensembles that matched the East...

    Over the course of the 2016 presidential campaign, liberal pundits loved to hand-wring about “norms,” namely with regard to how Trump had allegedly violated so many cherished ones. Trump infamously declined to preemptively endorse the veracity of the election results, and this was taken as a big, historic affront, warranting several days’ worth of continuous news coverage. In fairness, it’s probably true that Trump in some sense did defy longstanding “norms” by casting a degree of doubt over whether the election results could be trusted. But that’s history now. Let’s take a look at a new norm violation underway — and this...

He continued, People thought blacks and whites shouldn't marry. People thought blacks shouldn't be equal. That doesn't mean you accept it as fact as a leader.

    Proposal: Award any child ( regardless of age) an official high school diploma from his local high school if they score above a certain level on the SAT, ACT, or GED exams. Why? 1) If the purpose of compulsory education laws is to produce literate and numerate citizens then scoring above a certain level on the SAT, ACT, or GED is proof of that. 2) Fewer students in school will reduce the number of teachers needed. This means fewer salaries, pensions, and benefits that must be paid by the taxpayers. It may even mean closing down and selling some schools...
