    Big Government (Breitbart) ^ | March 3, 2015 | Charlie Spiering
    A new advocacy group wants to see President Andrew Jackson ride off into the sunset. It aims to replace his face on the $20 bill with the portrait of a woman. Among the 15 choices offered by the group: Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. The campaign was started by Barbara Ortiz Howard, who, according to the website, wants to “literally raise the profile of a woman in a male-dominated field.” Below is the full list of proposed candidates.

    World Net Daily ^ | Feb. 24, 2015 | Aaron Klein
    David Axelrod, President Obama’s former longtime senior strategist, has been caught minimizing his father’s participation with the Communist Party USA. Further, there is evidence Axelrod himself was mentored early on by communist activists. In his book “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics,” released two weeks ago, Axelrod makes light of the communist affiliation of his father, Ukrainian immigrant Joseph Axelrod.

    Roll Call ^ | Alexis Levinson
    In one of the party’s best pickup opportunities this cycle, Democrats have zeroed in on second-time candidate Monica Vernon to win Iowa’s 1st District. Freshman Rep. Rod Blum, a Republican, holds the seat. But the district’s composition is competitive, if not left-leaning: In 2012, President Barack Obama won it with 56 percent. (SNIP) On the other side, there’s concern in the state Blum might not get much help from Washington, D.C. after voting against John A. Boehner for speaker on his first day in office. Iowa Republicans noted Blum didn’t make the National Republican Congressional Committee’s initial list for the...

    In the previous installment of this series, I discussed the constitutional principle of the separation of powers as a check on the accumulation of government force into the hands of any one man or group of men. Now, I would like to discuss the other intended division of power – the principle of federalism that was engineered into our constitutional system. This principle should be – and would be, if we would use it effectively – an even more powerful deterrent to federal government overreach than even the separation of powers between the three branches of government at the federal...

    Random thoughts on the passing scene: When President Obama keeps talking about "violent extremists" in the abstract, you might wonder whether Presbyterians are running amok. The mainstream media seem desperate to try to find something to undermine Republican governor Scott Walker's rise in the polls. The worst they have come up with is that he didn't finish college.

The House on Tuesday voted 257-167 for the measure that Obama is expected to sign. Without action, funding for the department would have expired Friday at midnight.

    Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. What I will be discussing in my talk today is the crucial role that the ideas of Ayn Rand and Murray Rothbard have played in the defense of liberty and Western civilization. All Americans, well read in political affairs, know of these famous thinkers. They were two of the most powerful and revolutionary intellectuals in the 20th century, contributing many valuable insights to our knowledge of philosophy, politics, and economics. As with most intellectual rebels, their major ideas about freedom and government were highly controversial. What I will do in this talk is explain what...

Why is it oppressive and racist? Because the dictionary was written by a white supremacist, heteropatriarchal system:

But that is exactly what nefarious politicos and racialists have demanded, and in the face of a massively quantifiable unsuccessful movement, it is precisely what those referenced are demanding continue. An ever-growing laundry list of color-coded complaints are bequeathed from generation to generation and used as the path to election by politicians and a path to riches for those such as Al Sharpton and the NAACP.

The terms and conditions for governing that once held the same meaning under our Constitution in the past no longer applies to the present as both political parties are unwilling to respect or even defend the Constitution. The President of the United States faces no opposition from either elected party in Congress as he imposes his vision of transforming our Republic. By...

    Before the New DealThe essay Federalism: Yesterday and Today covers Federalism from the Founding period to the modern era, with some attention paid to the Progressive Movement. The Progressives thought that the solutions to America’s problems, which they believed originated with Big Business, would only be found in Big Government as a counterbalance. They believed that Big Government should nudge, or even coerce, Americans to “live properly” – which meant to live as this university-educated elite saw fit. The earlier essay laid out their political and social agendas. The Constitution was an impediment to this agenda, and the Progressives needed...

But there was one big addition: hundreds attended the conference's first-ever Activism Boot Camp, which trained attendees in the best practices of do-it-yourself campaigning. The boot camp, powered by American Majority, a nonprofit conservative organizing group, was split into two tracks: the "Candidate, Campaign Manager & Campaign Operative" track and the "Activist" track. It featured lessons on social media, fundraising, organizing and data and technology. Ned Ryun, American Majority...

Before the decision, individuals were limited to a combined total of $46,200 in contributions to all...

    The "Third Way" ideology is much more than just 'another way' of doing things. Rather, it is the specific ideology of the political elite and their multinational industrial paymasters. And, if you study this ideology closely, you may soon learn the real reason behind all those very oppressive laws, rules and regulations coming out of Washington these past few years. Simply put, the intent of the "Third Way" ideologues is to design a classed society -- made up of us worker serfs and our elite controllers. To do that, it is necessary that the elite have general control over money,...

Early in my career as a geologist for an oil company, we were told not to prospect in water deeper than 2,000 feet. Most offshore oil is found in sand layers sandwiched between thick layers of mud and clay, and our management believed no sand could get that far offshore, and drilling costs were too high. However, in 2001 the BAHA 2 well was...

    Even groups whose purported mission is to defend Jews against attack do not always acknowledge the extent of campus anti-Semitism and SJP’s role in perpetrating it. Tina Malka, the associate regional director of the San Diego chapter of the Anti-Defamation League was quoted as stating that SDSU’s inclusion on the Top Ten list was “unfair to the school.” [SNIP] Yet, the ADL is determined to keep its head in the sand and dismiss the many documented incidents at SDSU with the claim that they do not indicate an “anti-Semitic environment.” It is time for the ADL and other mainstream Jewish...

    Barack Obama aroused controversy over his affinity with Islam yet again in February 2015, when a photo surfaced from the U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in August 2014, showing Obama passing by a group of African delegates with his right index finger raised in a gesture strongly reminiscent of the Islamic State’s now notorious one-finger salute. For the Islamic State and other Muslims, this gesture signifies allegiance to Islam’s absolute monotheism. Whatever Obama may have meant by it, the revelation that he had made the gesture — coming so soon after his renewed refusal at his “Countering Violent Extremism” summit to identify...

    Minnesota state Rep. Tony Cornish says the al-Shabaab threat against the Mall of America should be enough to motivate mall owners to drop their “no guns” policy so citizens can protect themselves. Mr. Cornish, a Republican who also chairs the House Public Safety Committee, said the Mall of America has interpreted state concealed carry laws incorrectly, and he’s intent on challenging them for it, a local CBS affiliate reported. “This is completely ridiculous. The complete opposite of what they should be doing,” he said. “If we’re threatened with an attack, the last thing you want to do is disarm...

    (CNSNews.com) – The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is advancing federal regulations that require federally funded organizations caring for illegal alien minors who are in the United States without their parents (Unaccompanied Children or UC) and who may have been sexually abused access to “emergency contraception” services. “Emergency contraception” includes abortion-inducing drugs. These care providers currently include Catholic and other faith-based organizations that oppose abortion, according to the Center for Family and Human Rights or C-FAM, a Catholic advocacy group. The Interim Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 24,...

    Brainwashed! Life in a world of illusion and deceit By Helen Doogue Vere Many of us feel we are clear about what we believe and why. Perhaps you think you have a cohesive, logical and well-thought-through worldview. But what if you are more the product of your culture, your society and your peers, than you realise? Secular psychologist Philip Zimbardo certainly thinks that we can be easily influenced to think or behave in certain ways. In 1971, he ran the Stanford Prison Experiment, whereby he took healthy and apparently well-disposed male American college students, and randomly assigned them roles of...

    Guns can be dangerous in the wrong hands. But so are articles about guns written by people who don’t understand anything about them. There’s sadly no excuse to be ignorant about firearms. They’ve been around for hundreds of years. They’re owned and operated safely by tens of millions of Americans each year. Our Constitution guarantees our individual right to possess guns so that we might be able to defend ourselves from those who would violently take away our freedom. Many gun controllers, however — some of whom have bylines for major media organizations — don’t actually know the first thing...
