    Judge Richard A. Posner, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981 and serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago, has published an op-ed at Slate declaring that the U.S. Constitution is a waste of time. Posner writes: And on another note about academia and practical law, I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, day, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation (across the centuries—well, just a little more than two centuries, and of course...

    The Daily Signal ^ | June 24, 2016 | Melissa Quinn
    Maine Gov. Paul LePage may have considered a proposal to prohibit food stamp recipients from using their benefits to buy candy and sodas to be a sweet one, but the Obama administration disagrees. The friction between the Republican governor and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has reignited a debate after the Obama administration denied LePage’s request to put restrictions on what can be purchased with food stamps. In a letter to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, LePage said: “It’s time for the federal government to wake up and smell the energy drinks.” In an interview with The Daily Signal, LePage’s health...

Democrats are making it clear they don't care how corrupt their leaders are. In fact, the more corrupt their leaders are --...

    Are Western women responsible for provoking Muslim men into raping them? Some Europeans certainly seem to think so. Recently, after a 20-year-old Austrian woman waiting at a bus stop in Vienna was attacked, beat, and robbed by four Muslim men from Afghanistan—including one who “started [by] putting his hands through my hair and made it clear that in his cultural background there were hardly any blonde women”—police responded by telling the victim to dye her hair: At first I was scared, but now I'm more angry than anything. After the attack they told me that women shouldn't be alone on...

After the opening of the award ceremony featured Beyoncé and her back-up dancers marching into the auditorium to a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech, actor and producer Terence J went on to say, “Your vote is your voice,” and reminded everyone to register and “vote smart” as he introduced the show hosts, ABC’s Blackish stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross.

    The US national security industry is planning for the impact of an unprecedented global food crisis lasting as long as a decade, according to reports by a government contractor. The studies published by CNA Corporation in December 2015, unreported until now, describe a detailed simulation of a protracted global food crisis from 2020 to 2030. The simulation, titled ‘Food Chain Reaction’, was a desktop gaming exercise involving the participation of 65 officials from the US, Europe, Africa, India, Brazil, and key multilateral and intergovernmental institutions.

    It is necessary to state at the outset that I despise Neo-Nazis. But that does not mean that I approve of violent attacks on them as they peacefully exercise their rights to free speech. And that seems to have been what happened in Sacramento yesterday, despite media reports that report “violence erupts” and other such passive voice euphemisms that obscure the difference between perpetrator and victim. An important caveat is that I was not there and am relying on both reading between the lines of media reports and on local Sacramento talk radio.

A press release from the Democratic Party on Saturday proudly announced, “The platform goes further than previous Democratic platforms on women’s reproductive rights. It champions Planned Parenthood health centers and commits to push back on all Republican efforts to defund it.” "The platform also vows to oppose, and seek to overturn, all federal and state laws that impede a...

Will said, “I left it for the same reason I joined it in 1964 when I voted for Barry Goldwater, because I was a conservative. I leave for the same reason, I’m a conservative. To give you a time line, shortly after Trump became the presumptive nominee he had a summit meeting with Paul Ryan where they stressed their vast shared ground, which is more important than their differences. I thought that was puzzling...

After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the “One Million Moms for Gun Control” Facebook page. It later became “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.” We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a...

    Many oil companies succumb to the pressure from environmental activists and the media and join the fight against ‘climate change,’ or at least make motions to appear to do so. Not Exxon Mobil. In a previous column, I applauded CEO Rex Tillerson for refusing to climb on the climate change band wagon and for focusing on producing energy from fossil fuels—on which all of us depend—instead. Tillerson and Exxon have not lost their integrity: they are steadfastly holding on to the principles they know their existence and successful value creation depend on, such as the right to liberty, and more...

The sneering Amanpour repeatedly derided it as an example of “xenophobia” and “white identity” politics. Early in the evening, with the result still in doubt, Amanpour told Anderson Cooper: “A lot of the Leave movements are led by the hard-right, very, very xenophobic, anti-immigrant, very populist, nationalist, white identity politics.” Later, as reality set in, the journalist referenced the current issue of The Economist and raged, “This marks a victory...

    Madison— Faced with delays and inflation over the past five years, four major state highway projects — including a Madison artery — have accumulated overruns in excess of $700 million. While some of these increases come from faulty cost estimates or unavoidable inflation, the new figures underline the obvious: Delays can be costly for Wisconsin taxpayers. When projects are paused because of financial challenges in the state's road fund, the price of materials, labor and real estate can rise. The numbers compiled by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel underline the urgency of a divisive issue for Wisconsin's Republican leaders: finding a...

Activists have been arguing for months that leaving the EU would allow “climate deniers” to gain more power and undo environmental protections. From an environmental perspective this is catastrophic.

    The president just stated with unqualified certainty that the rejection of his executive amnesty was a result of the Senate failing to confirm Merrick Garland. In doing so, he just absolved the Senate of any blame for refusing his nominee. Democrats have been pressing for now for a *hearing.* But what would such a hearing consist of? Is not the most basic purpose of a hearing to ascertain whether the nominee can fairly, impartially and intelligently consider the merits of the cases brought before him? To even ask him whether he would be impartial would be to suborn perjury.

    The consequences of climate change on Boston are expected to be far more calamitous than previous studies have suggested, a new report commissioned by the city says. In the worst-case scenario, sea levels could rise more than 10 feet by the end of the century — nearly twice what was previously predicted — plunging about 30 percent of Boston under water. Temperatures in 2070 could exceed 90 degrees for 90 days a year, compared with an average of 11 days now. And changes in precipitation could mean a 50 percent decline in annual snowfall, punctuated by more frequent heavy storms...

We kind of did. Nancy is your character. She's brave. She's a medical student. So, we know she's resourceful.

    If you think that Donald Trump already has the Republican nomination locked up, then you don’t understand what is going on behind the scenes.  It has long been my contention that the elite will move heaven and earth in order to keep Trump from ever setting foot in the Oval Office.  One way that they could try to do this is by attempting to deny him the nomination at the Republican convention next month.  Over the past couple of days, the Washington Post, CNN and a whole host of other mainstream news outlets have been reporting on a new “last-ditch...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | June 19, 2016 | Malcolm A. Kline
    One way to measure the left-wing bias in academia is by looking at the degree to which those who don't subscribe to that point of view go to camouflage their outlook on life. "Approximately a third of the conservatives we interviewed, for example, concealed their politics prior to tenure by 'passing' as liberals," Jon A. Shields and Joshua M. Dunn, Sr., write in their book, Passing On the Right: Conservative Professors In the Progressive University. Shields teaches at Claremont McKenna College. Dunn is an associate professor at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. They traveled extensively in order to...

    The Senate plans to take four procedural votes Monday on amendments that would improve or expand background checks and make it harder for suspected terrorists to purchase guns. None is expected to get the 60 votes required for further action. Democrats were expected to block two Republican amendments, arguing that they fall short in controlling the sales of guns. Republicans were expected to block two Democratic amendments, contending that they threaten the constitutional rights of gun owners.
  • Horowitz: How the Democrats are Disarming Us

    Truthrevolt.org ^ | 6-20-2016 | David Horowitz
    According to a Gallup poll taken in the week after the atrocity in Orlando, only 29% of Democrats thought this was an Islamic terror attack. Fully 60% of all Democrats attributed the attack to "domestic gun violence." Moreover 42% of independents felt the same way. Only 44% attributed it to the Islamic holy war that has been declared on America and the West.[1]How is this possible? During the massacre, the terrorist himself took pains to post messages declaring that his acts were acts of Islamic terror against America. "Now taste the Islamic state vengeance," one message said. Another warned, "in...

    It must be pretty sweet to be a white swing voter. Political campaigns blow millions of dollars catering to your every whim. Politicians ask what you think before they step out on a major policy program, despite the fact that your views aren’t representative of the majority of Americans. The changing demographics of this country mean it’s well past time to stop obsessing over a shrinking population that’s out of sync with the right direction for this country. Continuing to cater to those voters can have dire consequences, in politics and more importantly in policies that deeply impact people’s lives....

    This article covered assault weapons specifically, but I still believe wholeheartedly that the much broader problem with gun violence requires us to heavily fund mental healthcare in this country, and with deep pockets. A majority of all gun deaths are still suicides, or murder-suicides. While we must do something to prevent the string of massacres we’ve seen with assault rifles over the past few years, we’d be sorely mistaken not to address the grave mental health problem in our country. This is a separate issue from domestic terrorism, but is definitely where this discussion needs to go.

    President Barack Obama used his visit to Yosemite National Park on Saturday to tout his administration’s environmental record and to warn Americans about the dangers of climate change — albeit with false information. “Fires are raging across the west right now … all while it’s still really early in the season,” he said in a speech at the park, according to the Los Angeles Times. Obama joins California Governor Jerry Brown in making a spurious connection between wildfires and climate change that scientists have long since rejected.

    Article V Blog ^ | June 17, 2016 | Rodney Dodsworth
    From the 1776 Maryland Declaration of Rights and the 1783 New Hampshire Bill of Rights we are reminded of the proper American attitude toward a government hostile to freedom: The doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind. In a recent post to her Eagle Forum website, the highly respected and admired Phyllis Schlafly unfortunately resorted to a lot of snark and little reason in her decades’ old opposition to an Article V convention of the states to reclaim free government. Beginning with her title, “Failed Republicans Want...

    Responding to a comment from a gay caller from the Log Cabin Republicans who suggested that conservatives were not being “compassionate” enough to the gay community in the wake of the Orlando shootings, Milo argued that it was the duty of conservatives to provide solutions, not emotional gestures. “This is the worst thing about being gay in America” said Milo. “Ungrateful other gay people, these whiny people who expect everybody to pander to their feelings all the time.” Milo went on to defend the record of Conservatism in looking out for gay people. “It is conservatives who have been standing...

    Following the mass shooting in Orlando, guns have again become a hot-button issue. Nevada gun laws, along with open carry laws, allow people to carry a firearm almost anywhere they like. That might include the Las Vegas Strip, clubs and bars. It’s not just handguns. The law protects rifles and the like as well. “It covers everything. I’ve never seen a reason to carry a rifle down the road, but if it became a prudent thing to do, I would do it,” said David Stilwell, owner of Las Vegas’ Gun Butler. Openly carrying firearms doesn’t require a permit, and signs...
