    Some people are of the unfortunate opinion that the John Birch Society is militantly patriotic and a supporter of this nation's military. That is not the case, especially not now. The JBS always was a front group for the European right wing and our own domestic Jew-haters. It was the "blue lodge" for recruiting decent conservatives and, by exposing them a little bit at a time to the classic anti-Jewish line, to eventually recruit them into the anti-Semitic movement proper. But at least when I was a member some thirty years ago the Society's publications didn't openly take potshots at...

    I can't imagine what it must be like to sincerely believe you are a woman trapped in a man's body. It must feel like hell, but that doesn't mean it's true. Of course, it could just mean I'm not all that evolved either...Too many people have become so maniacal about sex they have convinced themselves that sexuality IS their identity. That's why "progressives" refuse to even entertain the premise that a biological man who believes he is a woman is mentally ill. We don't do this with any other mental disorder. Look at anorexics, for instance. They literally become skeletons...

I don't believe that for one second. She should have known. It was her job to know. We are left with two choices- either Hillary is bumbling incompetent moron or she is a galactic scale liar.

However, to market anything as organic the operation must be certified by the government. So, of course I must spend hours filling out and filling out and filling out forms. Of course there are fees, filing fees, inspection fees and certification fees. Then there is the time spent with the inspector...

    Oilprice.com ^ | 03-09-2015 | Willem van Oranje
    The P5+1 agreement with Iran on Iran’s nuclear program has generated (sometimes fevered) anticipation of an Iranian oil bonanza at the end of the nuclear agreement rainbow, both in terms of the increase in Iranian crude output and the business opportunities for foreign firms in driving the increase. The anticipation comes from several sources. Iran’s crude potential is one. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Iran’s proven crude reserves, 158 billion barrels, are the world’s fourth largest (and among the cheapest to produce at $8-to-$17/barrel, depending on the source,). Iranian public statements expressing determination to increase crude output...

Congress has been flooded with petitions - ostensibly neither Democrat nor Republican - urging Congressmen to cast their votes by crossing political party lines. 340 Rabbis in their appeal to Congress dated 17 August—have made the following assertions:

    When provisions were added to the Immigration and Nationality Act in 1986 that forbid the hiring (or referring for a fee) of an alien unauthorized to work in the United States, people thought it would be a game-changer. The prohibitions were accompanied by civil fines and even criminal penalties for repeat offenders.The "employer sanctions" laws, as they are usually described, also included prohibitions on "use of labor through contract", reflecting legislators' awareness that without them, employers would try to skirt the law forbidding hiring of illegal aliens by claiming they were contract employees, or by conveniently using subcontractors to do...

    Over a year’s time, from October 1934 to the following October, the Chinese Red Army undertook “The Long March”—a grueling 6,000 mile circling retreat from the Nationalist forces of Chiang Kai-shek. During that year, the Red Army suffered nearly 90 percent losses, crossing 18 mountain ranges and 24 rivers to arrive at its new base at Shaanxi, in northwest China. The GOP has many lessons to learn from the Chinese Communists. When the Long March began, Zhu De and Zhou Enlai led the Chinese Communist Party.  By the end, Mao Zedong was in complete control.  Prior to 1934, Mao’s guerilla...

A concerned citizen asks a question, which is answered by an expert, "Dr. Science." Not surprisingly, the questions are never answered correctly, and are often little more than a launching point for a non sequitur monologue from Dr. Science. The show's motto is "He knows...

Years ago, a Bavarian friend remarked that the most destructive German export of all time was Karl Marx; far more catastrophic in effect than that perennial rival for ideological malpractice, Adolf Hitler. There’s something to this. Marx’s disciples like Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, and the Kim family have between them killed many more people than perished at the hands of Adolf. Yet after each catastrophe, the intellectuals would go...

This sleight of hand was orchestrated so that congressmen, including all members of the Republican Party, could say in public to their constituents that they are vehemently opposed to the deal while simultaneously making sure the deal...

    The incorporationist doctrine should be rejected. The simple fact of its long use lends it no credibility – a bad idea is still bad, even if it has the weight of long usage behind it. When he authored the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, Thomas Jefferson based his arguments for nullification, in part, upon the compact theory of the relationship between the states and the Federal Government. According to this original understanding of the State-Federal relationship, the Constitution under which the Republic was to operate was the creation of the several states, and thus the Federal government was also the creation...

First up, Trump dings Bush on his one of his more idiotic pro-illegal...

    And? CNN said Tuesday it is amending the criteria for candidates to qualify for its Republican presidential debate later this month, possibly clearing the way for contender Carly Fiorina to be part of the main-stage debate. Fiorina has battled for weeks to be included in the Sept. 16 main event, arguing that CNN was relying too heavily on old polling to determine which candidates would make the top-10 cut. Frankly, I don't get it. What does Fiorina bring to the party? She was a disaster at HP; not only did she get fired by the board the company lost half...

    BUSH VS. TRUMP: A REVEALING CLUE Can someone be trusted to lead if allows himself to be bullied? Thomas Sowell. Even those of us who are not supporters of either Donald Trump or Jeb Bush can learn something by comparing how each of these men handled people who tried to disrupt their question-and-answer period after a speech. After Bush’s speech, hecklers from a group called “Black Lives Matter” caused Bush to simply leave the scene. When Trump opened his question-and-answer period by pointing to someone in the audience who had a question, a Hispanic immigration activist who had not been...

      A revelation coming out of Hillary Clinton's emails was her keen interest in the Presidential ambitions of one General David Petraeus: "Clemons had dinner this week with Petraeus, who freely talked about running for president," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "Will he write about Petraeus?" Clinton wrote back five minutes later. Moments later, Blumenthal sent Clinton Clemons' post mentioning the off-the-record dinner and discussing the relative political merits of Petraeus, Vice President Joe Biden and Clinton herself. "Clemons... told me more detail about [Petraeus'] attitude and interest," Blumenthal said, adding a couple of nuggets. Within four months someone decided to...
  • Trump Has Succeeded in Convincing Conservatives to Discard their Principles Overnight

    Trump Has Succeeded in Convincing Conservatives to Discard their Principles Overnight by CHARLES C. W. COOKE. September 1, 2015. Since he jumped self-confidently into the political limelight, Donald Trump has been quite the upside-down man. Customarily, primary seasons permit each party’s voters to indulge in a rational process of elimination: First, they discover which candidate most closely agrees with them on policy, and then they ask themselves whether that person is capable of representing their ideas in public. This time around, however, this process has been disastrously inverted, a solid portion of the Republican party’s balloters having decided first who...
  • Here’s the thing about “campus rape culture”…everyone is missing the point.

    Mona Charen wrote a fantastic piece at The Federalist about the growing culture of campus rape. It would be, and has been, easy for liberals to thoughtlessly write it off as the continuation of a culture of "patriarchy" (here's a fun game of "get-yourself-called-sexist," ask them to actually define that term). Their solution to this has been to turn sex into almost literally a legal agreement at every base that gets rounded, thus giving some intrepid law student somewhere the idea to trail-blaze a whole new field of legal representation. ("Please back away from my client, those genitals are already under contract...
