  • Trump No Longer Even Pretends To Be a Republican

    Scott Walker’s budget reforms in Wisconsin are one of modern conservatism’s greatest success stories. So why would Donald Trump attack them? Because 1) he is not a Republican, and 2) he is not a conservative. Trump went after Walker yesterday: “Wisconsin is in turmoil,” Trump told a boisterous crowd at a rally in Iowa. He pointed to the state’s roads, schools and hospitals, which he said were all “a disaster.” This is the kind of smear the Democrats perpetrate against Walker, but why would any Republican join them? This, too, is straight out of the left-wing playbook: “A guy like...

    Davenport— Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is wrapping up his first week as a presidential candidate in a three-day swing across Iowa, driving from the eastern bluffs above the Mississippi River to the western ones above the Missouri. The GOP governor will make at least 10 stops in this all-essential early state in the presidential nomination process, which will be key to his candidacy. Without a win or at least a very strong finish in this neighboring state where he spent part of his childhood, Walker is unlikely to sustain for long the campaign that he began Monday in Waukesha. To...

    It looks like no Fox pilots from this past season will make it to series after all. Back in May, then-Fox chairman Kevin Reilly didn’t pick up any of the five produced comedy pilots to series, instead upping the order of previously ordered Mulaney from 6 to 16 episodes. At the time, Reilly entered talks with Universal TV for a six-episode order to Matt Hubbard’s Cabot College, executive produced by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, considered the front-runner of the bunch.

    <p>The leading power of the age is in relative decline, beset by political crisis at home and by steadily eroding economic prowess. Rising powers are jostling for position in the four corners of the world, some seeking a new place for themselves within the current global order, others questioning its very legitimacy. Democracy and despotism are locked in uneasy competition. A world economy is interconnected as never before by flows of money, trade, and people, and by the unprecedented spread of new, distance-destroying technologies. A global society, perhaps even a global moral consciousness, is emerging as a result. Small-town America rails at the excessive power of Wall Street. Asia is rising once again. And, yes, there's trouble in the Middle East.</p>

    January 8, 2012 When a gunman opened fire on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and others at a shopping center near Tucson exactly a year ago — killing six people and injuring Giffords and many others — some people were quick to blame the episode on the overheated political climate. At the time of the attack, there was a high tide of political rhetoric across America and a low ebb of social civility. The New York Times reported that the shootings "raised questions about potential political motives" and that the Pima County, Ariz., sheriff was blaming the tragedies on "the toxic...

    Obama To Propose $1.5 Trillion In Tax Increases Tomorrow Zeke Miller Sep. 18, 2011 President Barack Obama will ask the Super Committee to double its mandate and cut $3 trillion from the federal deficit, according to White House officials, with half of the savings coming from tax increases on corporations the wealthy. Republicans have already rejected a central component of the plan — the so-called "Buffett Rule," which would set a minimum tax rate for those with incomes over $1 million. This tax increase goes well above and beyond the approximately $800 billion agreed to by Speaker of the House...

    The CNN blog just ran a lengthy interview with Tricia Erickson, who makes a variety of arguments that no believing Mormon should ever be elected President. (Link here; note that in her interview she cites language from the endowment ceremony). Erickson’s arguments...repeats the old evangelical anti-Mormon reasoning that Mormons are all basically automatons, and suggests that any Mormon politician would have a secret church-promoting agenda. It’s an argument straight out of The Manchurian Candidate (and reminiscent of the anti-Catholic arguments raised against JFK)...But what are the implications of the article’s prominent publication today — what does it say about the...

    A Mormon teenager will stand trial for allegedly helping her lover to kill his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend, a judge has ruled. Toni Fratto, 19, and Kody Patten, 18, are accused of hitting Micaela Costanzo over the head with a shovel, cutting her throat and then burying her body in a shallow grave just outside West Wendover, Nevada. Prosecutors claim the couple, who were planning to get married, murdered Micaela because she had been texting Patten asking to get back together with him. After the killing the pair drove to a nearby swimming pool to 'clean up' - and then went to...

    WEARE, New Hampshire (ABC 4 News) - In a bizarre and tragic twist, the woman who led to the political downfall last year of one of the most powerful men in Utah state government, is now dead. Cheryl Mader was murdered in a small New Hampshire town about 30 miles northwest of Manchester. The man broke into Cheryl Maher's home in Weare, New Hampshire early Sunday morning. He shot and killed her before turned the gun on himself and committing suicide. Maher was not the killer's only target. Earlier that same morning, the same man broke into another home about...

    ROGERS, Ark. -- For more than 150 years, an important piece of Arkansas and American history has been relegated to obscurity. In early 1857, a wagon train left Northwest Arkansas and headed west, bound for California. The Francher-Baker train was made up of 14 large Arkansas families, about 800 cattle and around 30 wagons. "They were en route to California for a better life and little did they know that Brigham Young had declared war on the United States two weeks before they entered the Salt Lake Valley," said Phil Bolinger, with the Mountain Meadows Monument Foundation. So without knowing...

    NBC's Tina Fey guest-hosted "Saturday Night Live" last evening, and viewers could hardly be surprised her network took the opportunity to once again use her to bash former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. In a mock Republican presidential candidates debate, before depicting Palin as an idiot that doesn't fully understand English, Fey did manage to take a humorous swipe at the soon to be exiting CBS "Evening News" host saying, "I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world's great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric" (video follows...

    Paul Farhi of the Washington Post reports on Tina Fey’s acceptance speech for the “Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.” In her acceptance speech, Fey touched on her best-known bit — her Palin imitation –and offered some mock hands-across-the-political-divide commentary. The rise of conservative women in politics, she said pointedly, is good for all women, “unless you don’t want to pay for your own rape kit . . . unless you’re a lesbian who wants to get married to your partner of 20 years . . . [or] unless you believe in evolution.” The lines played first to nervous laughter...

    Tomorrow's Restoring Honor rally at the Lincoln Memorial has the Democrats in a panic. They're afraid of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin exercising their right to free speech and their freedom of assembly. At the National Press Club, Walter Fauntroy falsely accused the Tea Party of having ties to the Ku Klux Klan. In the many years Fauntroy was Delegate for the District of Columbia, he was a member of Congressional Black Caucus, an organization that excludes people on the basis of race. Blind to his hypocrisy, he has falsely accused a political movement open to all races, the Tea...

    By Steve Cooper The Conservative Glenn Beck had over 3.7 million viewers back in Jan 2010 and since then he has lost almost 2 million viewers and I believe this is due to him undermining the Obama eligibility movement. The people see through the attacks Glenn and we sense that you are aiding Obama and John McCain hide their alleged cover up of Obama's ineligibility.

    The supposed vision surprised locals who have come in their hundreds to pray and light candles in the grounds of Holy Mary Parish church. While some believe the willow should be preserved and covered in glass, others think the believers are just barking up the wrong tree. Noel White, Rathkeale Community Council Graveyard Committee chairman, said workmen sprucing up the church land saw the image when they cut the tree. "One of the lads said look, our Blessed Lady in the tree," Mr White said. "One of the other lads looked over and actually knelt down and blessed himself, he...
