    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbsIdQt3E0A The best clips of the 1980 Debate between Reagan and loser president Jimmah Cartah! I think this illustrates the differences between capitalism and socialism and shows that Reagan is not to blame for the problems of the 80s but inherited the problems from the left. I wish there were more documentaries on how terrible things were in this country before Reagan took office. Sick of know nothing millennials and Generation X'ers and commie baby boomers who know nothing of how bad things really were and nothing about how things work posting lies on Youtube and elsewhere!

    I was talking to an electronics supplier on the phone this morning and had to state the model number to the Sales Rep. As we all do, in order to clarify, we spell it out. When I came to a "D", I actually said, "D as in Donald". It came out so innocently that I stopped in mid-sentence and snickered. The Rep laughed too, when I said I must be watching too much election coverage. Amazingly, he responded, "We're getting a lot of that particular spelling for "D" lately, he's great isn't he?" What a surprise! Donald is becoming a...

    The black nationalist terrorists of Black Lives Matter are about to get a huge injection of left-wing cash to help them kill more cops and burn more businesses to the ground. (My takedown of BLM appeared a few months ago in American Thinker.) Underwriting this mayhem are the Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy which are creating something they call the Black-Led Movement Fund (BLMF), a six-year pooled donor campaign that seeks to generate $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition.

    I'm not delusional enough to think that the Big East realigned because I suggested it. I didn't even suggest adding Creighton and Butler. But in case somewhere out there IS reading: Here's a proposal for the next great realignment. First an explanation: The NCAA has rescinded the corrupt and stupid rule that a conference needs to have 12 teams in order to have a highly profitable football conference championship game. Also, the AAC is the big loser in the new playoff system; whereas most football conferences will make a LOT more money, the ACC will lose almost half of their...

    Lead researcher James Paton said G-PN would help to increase immune responses to pneumococcus because it kept the antigenic structure of protein surfaces on the bacterium. "Pneumococcus is a big deal in terms of disease and it is the biggest bacterial killer on the planet," he said. "There are currently similar wholesale vaccines being developed, which have used chemical killing but that is nowhere near as good. The fact that gamma radiation is being used to inactivate it makes it a better vaccine.

Given the subjugation of women in that part of the Islamic world which adheres to Shariah law, its putting to death of homosexuals and other practices (compared to the trendy approval of homosexual “marriage” in the leftist world in America) and other practices of Islam, such as enslavement, to many this alliance makes little sense.

    Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. That was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him. It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America . Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul...

    Coming off of the Woodrow Wilson years, the Democrat Party was the de-facto Progressive Party in the United States. Theodore Roosevelt's efforts had failed, and the GOP remained as having some constitutional elements in it. With the rise of Calvin Coolidge and the roaring 20's coupled with a reduction in government that makes most of us jealous, progressivism was looking like it was permanently eliminated. Technically, it was. In order to ensure its own survival, progressivism had to lie and say it was something else. That chosen title was "liberalism". Most of the time, when you and I think about...

    After his retirement, Coolidge gave several reasons for his decision, but one stands out. Coolidge suggested that it would be difficult to stay in office for too long without drinking too much of the Kool-Aid (to use a modern phrase)! “It is difficult for men in high office to avoid the malady of self-delusion,” he observed. “They are always surrounded by worshipers. They are constantly, and for the most part sincerely, assured of their greatness. They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation and exaltation which sooner or later impairs their judgment.

    With the F-22 Raptor, the Air Force acquired un equaled power to project air dominance. Lockheed Martin’s single-seat, twin-engined, all-weather fighter blended stealth, supercruise, great agility, and all-sensing avionics. Those features, plus high reliability and low maintenance, marked a huge leap in capability over USAF’s own F-15 Eagle, long the class of air combat. Indeed, the F-22 could not be matched by any known or projected fighter.

The first 112 years of America : 25 Presidents. The first 25 Presidents : 1262 executive orders. Theodore Roosevelt : 1081 executive orders. Keep in mind, Roosevelt didn't even serve two full terms, he was in for 7.5 years. And yes, many of these executive orders were explicitly to do an end-run around congressional authority, just like Obama does. Just like Obama. In which...

Remote court reporting, which allows a stenographer to record court proceedings from a remote location, has been in use at the Bisbee courthouse since May, Superior Court Administrator Eric Silverberg said Tuesday. The new process solves a continuing “demand and supply” problem, Silverberg said, which has limited the number of stenographers available to cover court proceedings. On May 9, the county launched a pilot program to test its remote recording system in Judge Terry Bannon’s courtroom....

The battle took place shortly after the surrender of Charleston and the massacre at the Battle of the Waxhaws. Those two battles had been demoralizing for the Patriot cause. The British were beginning to think that they’d squashed resistance in South Carolina. Perhaps worse, many Americans feared that they were right.
