    Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Computer, was arguably more intelligent and capable than 99.9% of the population. In a 1980 interview Jobs gave his vision for education: 'I am a very big believer in equal opportunity, as opposed to equal outcome….Equal opportunity to me more than anything means a great education….Maybe even more important than a great family life…It pains me because we do know how to provide a great education. We really do. If we got our act together, we could make sure that every young child in this country got a great education. But we fall far short...

    Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during President Obama's tenure, went on the Kelly File last night to talk about the possible manipulation of ISIS intelligence. He said the investigation should "start at the top. Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House."

    Progressives, who have always claimed to be the authoritative source of progressive attitudes on race, have actually become one of the centers of racist thinking in America over the last quarter century, a period of time in which postwar liberalism/progressivism itself was being reconfigured by the radical Sixties worldview. Progressive racism began in the last years of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life, when organizations such as the Black Panther Party and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) radicalized the issue of color in America by focusing on legitimate “black rage” and the “institutional racism” they claimed was embedded in the...

A powerful school employee union that militantly defends the exceptional pay, benefits and job security it has won for its members. Other government employee unions that do the same for their members. A tax system that aggressively redistributes income from businesses and the wealthy to the poor and to government bureaucracies.

    The progressive quote and its implications set the parameters for the next presidential election. Folks who want to define themselves as being further to the left than orthodox liberals now use the term progressive. If this were Denmark, they would be calling themselves socialist. But only Bernie has the courage and integrity to do that, so they refer to themselves as progressives. Progressives and Hillary specifically very much aim to carry forward the ethos and legacy of President Obama. His aims are theirs. The only difference of any consequence, as Hillary said in the debate, is that the...

    The Progressive Movement: A Synopsis All productive discourse must begin on a point of agreement in order to have meaningful results. Conservatives are not in agreement regarding the Progressive Movement. The Progressive Movement arose around the beginning of the 20th century. Socialist support gave the movement a bad name and they began to call themselves Liberals. However, as of late, bolstered by the open Socialist support they have returned to calling themselves Progressives. The socialist support makes it nearly impossible to distinguish between Democrats, Socialist, and Socialist Democrat. I will share my opinion about the origin and agenda of the...

Nowadays Americans are being killed and maimed explicitly because of their race. Execution-style cop killings are becoming distressingly common. Killings and vicious assaults based on the skin color of the civilian victim are also becoming common. That any of this is happening shouldnt surprise anyone who follows public events.

Trump said during a Wednesday interview on Bloombergs With All Due Respect that he would like to change the tax code. I would change it. I would simplify it, Trump told hosts Mark Halperin and John Heilemann from the lobby of Trump Tower on New Yorks 5th Ave. Specifically, Trump targeted hedge fund profits, which are currently taxed at a lower rate than regular income.

    Social justice warriors believe in an extreme left-wing ideology that combines feminism, progressivism, and political correctness into a totalitarian system that attempts to censor speech and promote fringe lifestyles while actively discriminating against men, particularly white men. They are the internet activist arm of Western progressivism that acts as a vigilante group to ensure compliance and homogeny of far left thought. The true definition of SJW is up for debate, but most generally it has become a catch-all term that describes feminists and liberals who actively try to solve the perceived social injustices of modern society by organizing in online...

    I found this online, and to use whiny social justice speak, it triggered something in me. Notice the regression? Not only in age, but scientifically as well. We understand more about life than at any point in human history, by far. That understanding is on a molecular level, and yet liberals want to pretend that a fetus is just a clump of cells (when they're not ignoring the organs they sell) and that it doesn't constitute life. It's willful ignorance for the sake of political expediency, at best, and the last thing you can ascribe to such thinking is "progress."

After several moments of confusion and confrontation, an event organizer took the microphone and said the protesters would be allowed to speak before Sanders.

Chief Justice Roger Taney, appointed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson, wrote that slaves were so far inferior that the Negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for their own benefit. After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment was adopted Dec. 6, 1865, abolishing slavery in America. Once Southern Democrats were forced to free their slaves, they attempted to effectively re-enslave them by passing Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws which...

By which Greeley meant that, were Berrigan and his radical friends to achieve power, their aggressive sense of moral superiority would lead them to put Greeley and his liberal friends in jail. It was classic Greeley hyperbole,...

Despite the obstacles that have been placed in the pathway of progressives, Friedman is correct beyond dispute. Think back to a decade ago. Same-sex marriage was considered an abomination in large parts of the country. Christian fundamentalists were flexing their muscles as never before. Rush Limbaugh and Fox dominated the American media landscape. The Bush administration had launched a war on climate science. Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was gay-bashing his way to national prominence. Today, marriage equality is the...

    A recent Gallup poll, "Moral Acceptability: Changes Over Time," shows Americans made a startling move to the left over the past 15 years. A blanket blaming of the church is the easy answer, but today, where black and white has faded into varying shades of gray, we are better served going back to where it began because we didn't get where we are today overnight. America's moral decline began with Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt [FDR].

    Back in the Sixties, there was a popular bumper sticker slogan that read question authority. In that dubious era of phony psychedelic bohemians and inane pseudo-revolutionaries, it was one of the few pieces of advice I took seriously. Even today it remains good advice, and perhaps even more so. Questioning authority lies at the foundation of how and why this country was formed. The War of Independence was the ultimate challenge to an authority that hadnt only become questionable, but beyond toleration as well. The framework of the Constitution was designed in part to allow both its citizens and its...

    Because Hillary Clinton is white and no longer young, a strain of political thought holds that she might lack Barack Obamas inherent appeal to new and minority voters and thus that she wont be able to ride the Democratic partys demographic advantages to easy victory in 2016. Writing for the Washington Examiner, Philip Klein ably sketches the nightmare scenario for liberals. If Hillary's performance among black voters retreats to more typical Democratic levels, he writes, it will hinder her efforts in swing states such as Ohio and Florida, where Democrats need to rack up huge margins in urban areas to...

    [Summary: Progressive education tends to celebrate creativity at the expense of knowledge and the traditional curriculum.] Creativity has been a big theme in progressive education for more than 75 years: We are constantly lectured that kids need music, art, theater, etc. This theme is now metastasizing into an oppressive dogma. But why? Ken Robinson, the guru of creativity, is famous for saying We are educating people out of their creative capacities. The premise seems to be: if kids do arty things, they will end up being artists. Empirically untrue. Conversely, Robinson says that if children do something rigorous and academic,...

    The truth Democrat/liberals/progressives HATE the middle class! Think a moment their alleged beloved middle class, especially the blue collar whites and independent small business are where most of the GOP vote resides these days. (I wish the RINOs would learn this). Obama's economic policies overwhelmingly favor the 1% (Fed prints money, sends it to Wall Street stock market soaring, middle class pooring)! Observe ('cept the hated Koch Brothers) nearly ALL the richest 1% (Hollywood, BIG media, Gates, Buffet, Steyer) are loyal Democrats and Obamas golf pals (having purchased their Obamacare exemptions)! Obamacare, with its fines, and the growing regulatory state...

    A recent Wall Street Journal op-ed does the dual service of outlining the history of the federal budget-making process over the last century, while showing, in its perilous and wrongheaded scheme for reform, just why this yawn-inducing topic is so importantand how the mess Washington has made of the enterprise subverts the key principle of our Constitutions vision of democratic government.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5IqH7oJ9h4TRANSCRIPT In 2008, American Jews voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. Even though Obama had spent large segments of his prior life hobnobbing with vicious anti-Semites like Jeremiah Wright and Rashid Khalidi, even though he had staffed his campaign with anti-Semites ranging from Zbigniew Brzezinski to Robert Malley, Jews turned out in droves for him. Sarah Silverman harangued young Jews into telling their grandparents that they were racist if they didnt vote for him; Jeffrey Goldberg, Obamas designated court Jew a role he has never relinquished -- informed Jews that they were racist if they feared Senator Obamas positions on...

    PROGRESSIVE ATHEIST KILLS 3 MUSLIM STUDENTS, MEDIA IGNORES By DEREK HUNTER, Feb 11, 2015 Three Muslim students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill were tragically murdered by a crazed progressive atheist, and the mainstream media is ignoring that fact. The victims, Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, his wife, Yusor Mohammad, 21, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, were shot and killed by Craig Stephen Hicks, 46. The New York Times reported on the murders and mentioned Hicks atheism, but not his politics. CNN did the same, as did The Washington Post. Yet even a passive look...

    Gov. Tom Wolf stood with a small group of lawmakers Wednesday morning to rally new efforts behind bills that would extend basic anti-discrimination protections statewide on the basis of sexual orientation. For Pennsylvania, a state where in most municipalities a person can still be fired from his job or denied housing because of his or her sexual orientation, Wolf said the extended anti-discrimination bills fit the state's heritage perfectly. "Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn on the basis of tolerance. On the basis of religious freedom," Wolf noted. U.S. District Judge John Jones gave the LGBT movement a push with...

    Progressives will always claim that no matter how badly their plans go wrong, at least their terrible policies were well-intentioned.The regimes that shot orphans, starved entire cities into submission and committed genocide were “caring” in comparison to the heartless Dickensian capitalists who did nothing for the poor except create cheap products and jobs. They might have killed millions, but their red hearts were in the right place. They didn’t just spend all their time gobbling caviar and diving into swimming pools full of all money like the millionaires of the West. Instead they gave speeches about Marxism-Leninism, killed anyone who...

    For years the Progressive left has made the case that the United States should be more like Europe. From the way we consume oil, to our healthcare system, the Progressives are convinced that Europe does it better. But I wonder what the American left would say about a recent article on the National Post, which reports that some on the European left are saying that a video, targeting children, consisting of dancing genitalia, isnt quite Progressive enough: STOCKHOLM In socially liberal Sweden, an educational video for children featuring dancing genitals has become an online hit and even drawn criticism...

    The USA has, by far, the highest per capita gun ownership in the world. Progressives will tell you that this is what makes America the Murder Capitol of Planet Earth. But we're not, and in this devastatingly effective Firewall, Bill Whittle shows why the center of Gun Nut Nation is in fact one of the safest places in the world.
