    Of America’s founding architects, Thomas Jefferson is arguably one of the greatest minds and ardent defenders of liberty and the fundamental rights of man. Yet he was wise enough to recognize that he was not immune from the corrupting effects of governing power. Jefferson said, “If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, judges and governors shall all become wolves … Cherish therefore the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them.” From textbooks to...

    The Federalist ^ | 2015-10-05 | Ben Weingarten
    So why is Yale University, whose crest written in Hebrew and Latin translates to “Light and truth,” giving a platform to an ideology that blots out light and conceals or obfuscates truth as part of its greater mission for world domination? If all ideologies are equal in value, and if our own heritage is to be defined primarily in the Obama/Zinn milieu of The Crusades, Western imperialism, and slavery, then perhaps Yale’s decision is not only justified but represents a healthy dollop of redistributive justice. Even so, Yale is endorsing an ideology under which Yale itself could not exist, just...
  • “Black liberal kills nine white people”. That should have been the original headline

      "Black liberal kills nine white people". That's the proper headline for the Oregon shooting. Via political correctness, bias, and malpractice, the media has turned this story into a total clusterf**k. A lot of bloggers, too eager to be first, screwed things up. Social media outlets have scrubbed accounts of the Oregon shooter to wash their hands of what they were not displeased to own prior to the tragedy. The Oregon shooter was a Brit, born in the UK. The Oregon shooter is referred to as "mixed race" or white but was as black as is Barack Obama. CNN turned him into a...

    Among his supporters one constant reaction to Donald Trump’s campaign is “He says what I’m thinking.” The things Trump’s supporters think are the same things he says in overwhelming proportions. They know they would say the same things if given a platform, because they already do when they speak to friends, family and co-workers. When Trump is attacked by the Republican establishment and the media, his supporters take the attacks personally. Knowing what to say in a political campaign is not a mystery; and listening to Trump say what needs saying has millions of people emotionally attached to his campaign....

    Warning: This post will generate massive cognitive dissonance in some readers. If you think you can learn from that, please read on. If that prospect makes you uncomfortable, please don’t read it. — If you compare Donald Trump to whoever you have in mind as your ideal president, Trump probably comes up short. There are plenty of qualities one might want in a president that Trump doesn’t have. So I understand why people think he can’t get elected. But Trump will not be running against anyone’s imaginary standard for president. He will run against real people. That’s where things get...

    Conservative predictions come true In a move that virtually every conservative on Earth saw coming a mile away, House Democrats have introduced a bill that would extend ObamaCare coverage to America’s illegal alien population. Sponsored by radical Dem Representatives Luis Gutierrez and Judy Chu (the usual suspects of illegal support) the “Exchange Inclusion for a Healthy America Act of 2015” seeks to grant illegals ACA enrollment via the healthcare exchanges. Here’s Luis Gutierrez, outlining the ways in which his admiration for the Pope and his belief in the golden rule were responsible for this piece of legislation. Keep in mind,...

    ...And they're probably right We’re going to ignore the unseemly, obviously biased, glee with which they deliver this news. We’re also going to gloss over the fact that, if the phrase ‘death watch’ had been applied to Hillary, liberals would spin it into wishful thinking on the part of evil conservatives who want her to literally die. Since we’re not progressives, we’ll just look at the facts and say this: When CNN claims that Rand Paul’s campaign is “officially on death watch,” they’re probably right. Barring a miraculous turnaround, Rand Paul’s campaign is nearing the end of the road. From...

    "Stop saying it's complicated!" The liberal playbook in the aftermath of any mass shooting works like this: The left, usually taking it cue from President Obama, declares that we once again have all the proof we need that we need to ban guns (except that they phrase it as “common-sense gun safety laws”), and that any argument to the contrary is self-evidently a refusal to solve the problem of gun violence, which is obviously the result of politicians’ fear of the NRA or some sort of cultish devotion to the Second Amendment. What is supposed to happen is that the...

    Routine One of the biggest wastes of time imaginable is to read news stories about what’s expected in upcoming economic reports. Late last week, we were regaled with stories about how economists were expecting news of robust job growth, and how this would be followed by serious consideration on the part of the Federal Reserve Board to finally raise interest rates—which have been kept artificially low for years in the hope of spurring job growth. But as is so often the case, the reality didn’t meet the expectations. Job growth stumbled again, with only 142,000 nonfarm jobs added to payrolls...

    Unbeknownst to most of us, homes are now fitted with smart water meters, smart gas meters, and smart appliances that communicate with each other and with the “mother ship.” Under the guise of climate change advocacy which pretends to save the planet from a non-existent anthropogenic global warming, people across the globe have been forced by utilities and their governments to accept smart meters as readers of their electricity consumption. I called these smart meters in my book, “U.N. Agenda 21: Environmental Piracy,” drones attached to our homes. Smart meters are being deployed without debate and without the informed consent...

    Challenging the liberal principle of social egalitarianism, which idealizes "equal results" instead of "equal rights." Donald Trump has shaken up today’s craven political establishment like Tom Paine shook up the Tories of colonial America. He has irreverently proposed genuine solutions to the invasion of “illegals.” He has attacked the poltroons of Washington and the talking heads of the media. He speaks rudely and boldly. The question now is, has he also been daring enough to put forth a bold tax reform plan? The answer is yes and no. Trump’s tax plan has numerous great features, but it also has one...

Hackers linked to Vladimir Putin’s Russia tried to gain access to Hillary Clinton’s insecure private email account at least five times while the Democrat presidential candidate served as U.S. secretary of state. The disturbing revelation comes months after retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen.

In an interview with National Public Radio (NPR) Mabus criticized a nine month study revealing that women sustain injuries at a higher rate than their male counterparts and shoot with less accuracy under combat-simulated conditions. “(The study) started out with a fairly large component of the men thinking this is not a good idea and women will never be able to do this,” Mabus told NPR’s David Greene. “When you start out with that mindset you’re almost presupposing the...

    Once again the corporatocracy wins as the so-called "Trojan horse" Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has been finalized. As WSJ reports, the U.S., Japan and 10 countries around the Pacific reached a historic accord Monday to lower trade barriers to goods and services and set commercial rules of the road for two-fifths of the global economy, officials said. For the U.S., the TPP (reportedly) opens agricultural markets in Japan and Canada, tightens intellectual property rules to benefit drug and technology companies, and establishes a tightknit economic bloc to challenge China’s influence in the region (likely forcing their hand into separate...

    The TPP Trade Deal is looming closer to becoming a finalized reality. Current negotiations center around Auto Manufacturing, and Japanese negotiators have constructed an outline that would devastate what remains of the U.S. Auto industry. Unfortunately the K-Street lobbyists, funded by Wall Street through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, have already greased the legislative skids to all but guarantee the elimination of thousands of jobs. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue gave Senators $18 million in bribe money to insure passage. The TPP deal encompasses approximately 40% of total global manufacturing. Trillions of dollars are at stake.

    Mr. President, there is something you can do to get gun legislation: debate NRA chief Wayne LaPierre. Millions would watch, and you’d change many minds. On Thursday, in the wake of yet another school shooting, President Obama went into the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room—named for the victim of a would-be assassin’s bullet in 1981—and left reporters in stunned silence with the vehemence of his remarks. “I’d ask the American people to think about how they can get our government to change these laws, and to save these lives and let these people grow up.” Since the president is...

He created a fictitious candidate to rally the same delusional crowd. Carson declared that the Muslim faith could disqualify a person from being a US president. Within days, Carson crowded Trump to the top of the Republican ticket by bashing the imaginary Muslim candidate. Even though there was none, Carson made the “Muslim candidate” the hottest...

Yet it has been pointed out that just eliminating zero-based budgeting alone, which automatically increases government spending by 6 percent a year, would stop the growth of government spending and the debt trajectory. Trump implied that there would be cuts in whole departments and business efficiencies brought to procurement and spending. As he put it in previous interviews, “It’s called management.” *snip* It was clear Trump had the American economy on his mind, first and foremost. He was detailed and less bombastic...

Originally, the restraining order was temporary.  There was a hearing to determine if the restraining order should be permanent.  Records show that Fryberg was served notice of the hearing, but he never...

    From warfare to lawfare The words used to describe Obama in countries in the Middle East plus Ukraine include “unreliable”, “skittish”, “weak in negotiations” and “feeble in foreign policy.” Best evidence that these words have real meaning can be seen in the “words not action” policy of the Obama Administration when it comes to Syria. On August 20, 2012, Obama said, “We have been very clear to the Assad regime but also to other players that a red line for us is seeing a whole lot of chemical weapons being moved around or utilized. That would change my calculus.”

    I’ve outsourced my post today to Neo-Neocon and Rudyard Kipling, both of whom, in their own way, have written about black holes: Nature abhors a vacuumFirst, Neo: she wrote an excellent article discussing the enigma that is our magic negro president. Nature abhors a vacuumIt continues the ongoing debate of whether Barry is a fool or a knave (spoiler alert: they are not mutually exclusive). And she includes interesting insights from various other authors: In my recent post exploring the life and work of the remarkable Brit F. L. Lucas, I came across a quotation that’s particularly apt: “One may question...

    Shaun King, a Daily Kos columnist and a prominent voice in the Black Lives Matter movement, has been hired by the New York Daily News, the paper announced on Friday. Executive Editor Jim Rich said in a staff memo Friday that King will join the tabloid as senior justice writer, a newly created role. The hiring of King along with several others comes at a turbulent time for the paper in which its newsroom endured widespread layoffs of veteran reporters and editors. "Shaun's writing on social inequality, police brutality and race relations in America has been some of the best...

    Conservative Review ^ | 3 October, 2015 | Robert Eno
    The week that was supposed to see multiple candidates drop out of the race for the Republican nomination saw none drop as all 15 candidates qualified for the South Carolina ballot by the September 30, 2015 deadline. For the first time in a long time, the media isn’t talking about a candidate that has dropped out. Donald Trump appeared on “60 Minutes” in a wide-ranging interview. During that interview Trump came out with new policy positions, many of which raised eyebrows. Will Lindsey Graham be the only U.S. Senator not on the stage at the CNBC debate at the end...

    Talking Point Memo's Editor's Blog ^ | October 2, 2015 | Josh Marshall, editor and publisher
    Over the course of the day we've had a handful of readers write in to ask or demand that we not report the name of the shooter, Chris Harper Mercer, in the Oregon school massacre. As the massacres continue, an increasing number of people think that we should expunge the names of the offenders both to obliterate their memory and deny them whatever infamy or perverted glory they hoped to gain by their crimes. I respect this viewpoint. I simply do not agree with it as something a news organization can or should do. There are various specifics of the...
  • Trump’s wall can be our wall by individual sponsorship

    Coach is Right ^ | 10/3/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Donald Trump is an out of the box thinker. Here is an out of the box idea for him: personal, individual sponsorship of a section of the wall to be built on our southern border. Trump has called for a wall to be built along the entire roughly 2,000 miles of our border with Mexico. There are some 2 million feet in the 370 mile border between Mexico and Arizona; and most observers agree sealing this “hole” needs immediate attention. Using a wall to slow and eventually stop illegal aliens from invading our country is the most obvious response to...
  • Obama’s Syria Problem

    Coach is Right ^ | October 3, 2015 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    It’s been over 1,500 days since Barack Obama tried to extend the failed Arab Spring into Syria. He called for the removal of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in order to hand over the country to the Muslim Brotherhood. But to Obama’s chagrin, Bashar al-Assad is still there. Russian President Vladimir Putin, well aware of Obama’s weakness, took advantage of the opportunity to directly intervene in the Syrian Civil war. The Administration naïvely believed that Russia would assist the cobbled together alliance of western allies in their fight against the Islamic state. Unfortunately, Obama and Kerry don’t understand or don’t care...

  • Greenfield: Media narrative: Half-Black Oregon Killer is a White Supremacist

    Media Narrative: Half-Black Oregon Killer is a "White Supremacist" Was he a Half-White Supremacist? October 2, 2015 Daniel Greenfield      According to the LA Times, Chris Harper Mercer, the Oregon killer, was a "White Supremacist". One slight problem. Mercer identified as multi-racial. His mother was black. He doesn't seem to have even known his father. He identified with black TV killer Vester Lee Flanagan. This doesn't seem to have stopped the media with George Zimmerman who was labeled a white Hispanic, so maybe Chris Harper Mercer was a white Black? Was he a Half-White Supremacist? I'm not an expert...
