    The real story of our times: Same media who sat idly by for almost eight years while the Obama administration ruined their own country, are now smearing Donald Trump and his supporters working to rescue America We don’t know how many Washington Post reporters it takes to screw in a light bulb but we do know it takes more than 24 of them to try to screw Donald J. Trump in a rushed-to-launch book. “More than “two dozen” Washington Post reporters contributed to a book published Tuesday that attacks Donald Trump.” (Daily Caller) That should tell us what WaPo reporters...

    Yesterday Donald Trump again called Hillary a crooked liar (and a bigot).With the help of her over-worked voice coach Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a racist – in uncharacteristically well modulated diction. Clinton started the day by releasing a video that featured Ku Klux Klan members and white supremacists touting Trump’s candidacy — then gave an afternoon speech condemning Trump’s racially inflammatory remarks and support within the “alt-right,” which she described as an “emerging racist ideology.” – WaPo The only thing – you can’t really believe anything a crooked liar says.

    As I recall from Gibbon, the Western Roman Empire went out with more of a whimper than a bang. By the time of Alaric and his Visigoths in 410 AD, Rome was so corrupt and weak there was little to stand in his way. In broad strokes it is fair to say that Roman society declined simultaneously with government. Long before the fall, Roman republican citizenship was a precious possession, a jewel of unsurpassed value. As such it was held closely and kept in short supply, for among other privileges, the Roman citizen wasn’t taxed. He was exempt from the...

    The nation is a proverbial derriere hair away from the deluded, twisted, hell on earth world of a Hillary Clinton Presidency. Make no mistake about it. Hillary Clinton isn’t just another Democrat, a political rival of Republicans. She is a lying criminal who exhibits sociopathic traits. Hillary Clinton is a dangerous, reckless narcissist who believes the world owes her the Presidency and who bows to globalist policies and operatives like the demonic, George Soros. Let us hope that the nightmare scenario below never develops: Donald Trump rallies in the polls the last 75 days of the election. He and Hillary...

And as always happens, politicians are getting into the act, particularly Hillary Clinton, who raged that Mylan must reduce the price immediately - as if pharmaceutical companies check with candidates for political office in setting their pricing. But if Hillary really wants to manifest her rage -...

Maybe we should start thinking about not only who is undervalued but who is overvalued in our society.”(continued)

Free markets and capitalism are the scapegoat, even when nothing remotely resembling unhampered markets in health care is in place in the United States. This time, it’s the EpiPen, a device that easily and safely injects epinephrine to quickly open up airways for people undergoing severe anaphylaxis because of an extreme allergy.

    Election Fraud and Voter fraud is real The oppressed are allowed once every few years to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them.—Karl Marx Democrats insist that fraud during elections is a myth. They claim voter fraud is “virtually non-existent,” buying votes is too difficult and too “legally risky to pull off,” tampering with voting machines is a misnomer because they are often backed up by paper ballots or other means of auditing (except for the 2000 election between George Bush and Al Gore, which Democrats still insist was stolen from Gore).

I don’t know what Hillary will be saying tomorrow but one thing I’m pretty certain of is that attacking the alt-right isn’t going to...

Finding these establishments today is a tall order. The latest evidence regarding traditional political “horse race” polls suggests that this phenomenon might be degrading them as well. Last October, in a burst of honesty, the Gallup Company-which is granddaddy of polling firms-decided it had had enough. It could no longer overcome the duel barriers of widespread cell phone use and resistance to answering pollsters’ questions. Consequently, Gallup announced it...

When someone is said to be taking a “hardline” position, people are constantly after them to “soften” said position, which sounds so much nicer and more reasonable. So we keep hearing that Donald Trump is taking a “hardline” position on immigration, that being the determination to deport all 11 million (or 12 million, or whatever it is) illegal immigrations who are...

    Watch the first minute of this clip to see Hillary Clinton use the “liar’s dodge” to avoid Jimmy Kimmel’s direct question “Are you in good health?” When you ask an honest, healthy person if they are in good health, they say, “Yes.” They might also ask why you are inquiring. They might add some details. But they usually answer the question. Clinton never answered the question about her health. All she did was mock the Trump supporters who keep bringing it up. Clinton intentionally avoided the question while skillfully making you think she addressed it. This is similar to Donald...

    It was the battle of the bobbleheads. Five hundred plastic, blue-pantsuit-wearing Hillary Clintons stood on tables across from 500 “Make America Great Again” red hat-wearing Donald Trumps -- a stare down, but with plastered smiles on their bobblehead faces. Tuesday night marked the third Bobble Election at Haymarket Park, held in honor of the upcoming presidential election. Saltdogs’ fans cast their votes by choosing a free bobblehead before settling down for a game. Whichever of the 500 bobbleheads ran out first was the winner. Charlie Meyer, president and general manager of the Lincoln Saltdogs, said the poll wasn’t about politically...

    When it comes to common sense, it might be safe to say that CNN political commentator Sally Kohn missed a memo or two. Now some people are gathering signatures for a petition telling Kohn to put her life where her agenda is. There's a Change.org petition encouraging Kohn to travel to a place that enforces Sharia law. This petition came after Kohn tweeted at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying progressive Muslims believe in Sharia:

    The leader of the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has had enough of her country being under attack by Muslim migrants that have been allowed to invade her country by Angela Merkel’s insane policies. Following violent attacks, some specifically sexual in nature, Frauke Petry backed the arming of the German people against the Muslims. Yahoo News reports:

    Whether or not President Obama wants to publicly admit that he is harming the security of the United States, the proof is in the pudding. Fox News reported last Saturday that a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner released by Obama was arrested recently after being identified as a top recruiter for ISIS. According to Fox News:

    "You are old, Mrs. Clinton," the young voter said, "And have to pretend to be strong; And yet you incessantly sit on a stool -- Do you think, you'll keep up, the act long?" "In my youth," Mrs. Clinton replied to the pup, "I was always afraid of a fall; But, it's more than a stool, for the Press holds me up, (and my Poll numbers, too!) through it all." “'You are old,' ” said the youth, “as that old poem went, "And have grown most uncommonly fat; Yet you still wear those pants suits that look like a tent...

    This will be my first and LAST vanity. I love this board and am so grateful to Jim for having created it. Although I do enjoy the conversations very much, i am here because I am a conservative, at least what conservative is supposed to mean, I think. I wrote the following 19 years ago. What’s scary is that most of it is still relevant today. I was ecstatic as i sat on the train and found that the NY Post had posted my editorial comment. I even yelled it out, which received strange glances!! I’d like to share it...

    Politico ^ | Aug. 23, 2016 | Gabriel Debenedetti |
    Subtitle: Republicans urged to join ‘Together for America Finance Council’ to defeat the GOP nominee. Hillary Clinton’s team is on the market for more millionaires. This time, Mitt Romney’s millionaires. After successfully encouraging disaffected, high-profile Republicans to publicly disavow their party’s nominee, Clinton’s campaign in the last two weeks has launched a coordinated effort to convince conservatives to give money to the only woman standing in Donald Trump’s way, and to get their friends to do the same.

    Even if you did not miss the news last week, you might have missed the fact that Donald Trump had a spectacular week on the campaign trail, touched off by a couple of major policy speeches and then a visit to flood-plagued Louisiana that for all intents and purposes has reset the campaign and even now show Trump ahead in one prominent national poll. Trump got a major bounce out of those speeches, particularly his Aug. 16 speech in response to the Milwaukee riots on law and order in West Bend, Wis. In that speech Trump unveiled a major appeal...
