    AmericaÂ’s upper classes are now and have always been insecure. Lacking a hereditary nobility, social strivers have had to work hard to distinguish themselves from the masses when the only distinguishing feature, really, is cash. In the 19th Century, worried rich people formed "the Four Hundred" to distinguish the social "in-crowd" from the hoi polloi. America's nervous upper class, distinguished now, as it was then, by money, not heredity, is still trying desperately to distinguish itself from those gun and God lovin' American masses upon whom Obama heaped such scorn.Our social "betters" go to Ivy League schools where earnest (and...

    Gun Watch ^ | 10 September, 2014 | Dean Weingarten
    On April 5th, 1996, Charles Krauthammer gave his reasons for supporting the 1994 Clinton Assault Weapon Ban.   The column was called "Disarm the Citizenry.  But Not Yet." in the Washington Post.   Ultimately, a civilized society must disarm its citizenry if it is to have a modicum of domestic tranquillity of the kind enjoyed in sister democracies like Canada and Britain. Given the frontier history and individualist ideology of the United States, however, this will not come easily. It certainly cannot be done radically. It will probably take one, maybe two generations. It might be 50 years before the United...

    There is a long standing argument about which state is the most corrupt. Is it New Jersey or New York? Is it Louisiana or Illinois? Maybe any one of these Democrat controlled states could take the crown, but it would be hard to overlook little Rhode Island. To use a boxing phrase, “pound for pound” Rhode Island might be the most corrupt of all. Last January 1st marked the seventy ninth anniversary of what is known as “Rhode Island’s Bloodless Revolution.” In this totally lawless power grab, carried out on January 1st 1935, the Democrats decided that they could not...

    The Bryan Ellis Investing Letter ^ | September 11, 2014 | Carole VanSickle Ellis
    We’ve all heard that millenials are the key to the housing recovery and that home prices are set to skyrocket just as soon as all the people renting or living in family homes (read: basements) get out, get married, get employed, and settle down in their new homes. However, for some reason, the estimates for when all this will happen just keep moving farther and farther out. In an effort to determine just what is delaying renters from becoming homeowners, the New York Federal Reserve conducted a Survey of Consumer Expectations to address the issue. The study found that while...

Porno film actor Alan Benyak had the lead role of “Mr. Cannibal,” in a horrific film which describes how four friends are kidnapped by a man only to realize they are part of his BREEDING FARM! “These women are milked, bred, and sold for a psycho’s pleasure,” says the promo on the front of the porno vid....

    There has been much talk about how "progressives" do not believe in individual responsibility.  There is the stereotype that liberals attribute volitional powers to firearms, that firearms cause violence.   In anticipation of the veto override  of SB656 in Missouri, Mayor Sly James gave a speech in Kansas City, MO. The transcript from fox4kc.com shows: Violence, the mayor says is committed by guns. I listened to the video of the speech.  That sentence is not recorded from Mayor James, but is reported as being said by Kerri Stowell of Fox4news.  As I heard it , she said that Mayor James...

    In the 1990s, when I lived in New York, a friend I’ll call Adam and I drove out to his house in Montauk, Long Island. A few miles into town, we noticed a police cruiser behind us. Adam, a stockbroker in his 30s, began to panic. “Crap, crap, crap!” Apparently, his car tag had expired — maybe his driver’s license and insurance, too. The cruiser turned on its lights and siren, and Adam pulled over. “Listen,” he said, “I may need you to bail me out.” I sat there, stunned and scared. The officer sauntered up to Adam’s window. “License...

    It was not hard for me to make the connection between the tragedy in Ferguson, Missouri, and the catalyst for my work to stop the climate crisis. It was all over the news in August: images of police pointing military-grade weapons at unarmed black people with their hands in the air. These scenes made my heart race in an all-too-familiar way. I was devastated for Michael Brown, his family and the people of Ferguson. Almost immediately, I closed my eyes and felt the fear I have for my own family. In the wake of the climate disaster that was Hurricane...

    How many people who are deliberately shot survive, compared to those who are shot and killed?  Some early work on this subject was done decades ago.    In 1985, Cook found that about 15% of assault linked gunshot victims that were known to police, died.  That would be a ratio of 5.67 to one. A recent study by the Urban Institute(pdf) helps to shed some light on this ratio.  It gives fairly precise figures for firearm assault injuries that are reported by hospitals, for Black males 15-34. By finding the ACS numbers for the population of 15-34 year old...

    Coach is Right ^ | 9/13/14 | Doug Book
    In 1996, Washington Post reporter and FOX News’ faux-conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer wrote “…the [Clinton Administration’s] assault weapons ban will have no significant effect either on the crime rate or on personal security. Nonetheless, it is a good idea . . . . Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.” Of course, Krauthammer soon learned that the American people cannot be “desensitized” to the left’s arrogant enterprises of would-be gun theft. On the contrary, recent in-your-face efforts by gun control zealots to...

    I have read thousands of stories of citizens fighting criminals, and usually winning, especially if they are armed.   In very rare cases, the criminal takes a weapon from an armed citizen.   It seems to be a bit more common for a citizen to take a weapon from the criminal.   It makes sense when you consider that the citizen has a lot more to lose than the criminal.  Criminals, by their actions, have shown that they have no concern for the rights of others, so a victim has reason to fear for their life.   Most citizens...

    Coach is Right ^ | 9/11/14 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Avoiding another Murrieta is the driving reason behind the Obama Administration secretly inserting thousands of illegal children (UACs) into school districts nationwide as a new school year begins. The fact that many districts are hard pressed to handle their own children is of no particular concern to the Regime. Four states– TX, CA, FL, and VA show up on a Numbers USA code map as having received the brunt of the 37,477 UACs so far this year.

    As the 2014 midterm races heat up Democrats across the nation are faced with the reality that they have lost the confidence of nearly every demographic group who will cast their votes in November. Recent polling indicates that women voters, a long-held Democratic Party constituency now prefer the Republican Party, leaving black Americans as the only group the Democratic Party has not lost the support of. As President Obama has suffered through historically low public support heading into his final election of consequence, he still maintains 89 percent approval ratings among African-Americans, compared to only 38 percent of all likely...

    Remember how Hillary Clinton was the inevitable next president? Remember how she would likely be fighting Andrew Cuomo the Democrat governor of New York for the 2016 Democrat nomination? If you don’t remember these “facts” you’re not alone. Tuesday’s Democrat primary in New York State brought a crashing end to talk of presidential dreams for “Prince Andrew of Albany.” While he won the primary with just over 60%, Cuomo lost about 40% of what should be his natural base. In deep Blue New York State the Democrat governor couldn’t win a resounding victory among the most devoted voters of his...

It was a question that many in power had been asking for some time. What was different this time was to whom the question was posed: the newly free black people themselves. It was a visit born of a massacre about a month before, and it launched a debate that continues to this day. The issue of where these people should go had dogged...

    We should be concerned when reading Y. Kerry Sara’s essay of being raised as a young black girl under hard Leftist -- and black American Muslim -- ideology. Our President’s mother worked hard to raise him with similar ideas and we must wonder how much of the hatred for everything that America stands for that his mentors held has touched his soul -- and affected his policies as well as how he regards the body of the American people. The Left -- and particularly the Party of Jim Crow -- has a lot to answer for in their inter-generational pursuit...

    Preface A wise man named Francis Bacon once said that knowledge is power. Certainly this is true when dealing with foreign, and often hostile, ideologies that confront our Western civilization and way of life. One of these ideologies is Islam. Americans, and Westerners in general, whether Christian or not, are all too often still dangerously ill-informed about Islam. Many people in the West hear and believe the propaganda promoted by various Muslim groups, but fail to search out the facts about the history, theology, and psychology of the Islamic phenomenon. While knowledge may be power, ignorance can render a person,...

In a C-SPAN interview Sherman made the “profound” point that “If you destroy one power in the Middle East, you empower the other side, and the four groups that are fighting ISIS now are in many ways nearly as evil as ISIS itself, and in fact, those who are fighting against ISIS today on the ground have killed far more Americans than ISIS has.” Saying that a...

    See, kids, this is why you don’t do drugs. And this is why you will always eventually regret voting for somebody who boasted of all the coke and dope he did while smoldering about his absentee father. President Choom Gang has demilitarized our military. He sends the Department of Health and Human Services to the Mexican border to welcome and take care of tens of thousands of illegal children streaming across. And now he wants to deploy American troops into West Africa to combat the Ebola virus. Boy, is this confusing. Mr. President, with all due respect: Are you still...

    According to a new web piece, President Obama is using “code speak” to send a message to his Muslim leaning contacts, assuring them that he does not recognize the State of Israel. “In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, [Obama] will use the term ISIL,” instead of Islamic State of Iraq, or the current designation of Islamic State. (1) In an article entitled “Decoding Obama’s Speech Reveals Some Startling Revelations,” we are directed to analysis of the geographical term “Levant,” a land bridge between Turkey in the North and Egypt in the South....

    By associating with extremist mosques and Hamas supporters, the kid who brags of teaching Canadian values is more than willing to throw these values away Sun News is reporting the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada made another visit to a mosque with controversial ties to terrorism. The Sun chain is the only mainstream media in Canada to report anything negative about the left’s golden boy, Justin Trudeau. According to the report, Trudeau visited the Islamic Community Centre of South Shore, just south of Montreal on Friday. The centre is known for having given thousands of dollars to the...

    Has the West lost its soul or be able to overcome the deplorable liberal cancer that lobotomizes intelligent people, creates endless line of apologists, capitulators, seditionists Brother Rachid, the son of a Moroccan imam, has posted a video called “A Message to President Obama From a Former Muslim” in which he attempts to give the President a crash course in Islamic studies. He begins by telling the president that he is wrong when he said that ISIL speaks for no religion. The former Muslim-turned-Christian further explains that terrorism begins in the schools and Mosques and must be cut off at...

    Child sexual trafficking on a massive scale were revealed to have taken place in Rotherham, England between 1997 and 2013 Absolutely, utterly, unquestionably, lamppost-hanging-worthily despicable. This is the only way to describe the news that greeted a jaded, yet somehow still horrified, world last month when revelations of child sexual trafficking on a massive scale were revealed to have taken place in Rotherham, England between 1997 and 2013. The victims were over 1400 white, working class girls who were systematically “groomed” to be sex slaves by Pakistani immigrants, being unspeakably abused by these filthy Islamic dogs so that they could...

    Back in 2011, before giving the traditional Christmas blessing to the City of Rome and the world ("urbi et orbi"), Pope Benedict XVI reflected on the Child of Bethlehem as Savior. His Holiness said (in part): "He was sent by God the Father to save us above all from the evil deeply rooted in man and in history: the evil of separation from God, the prideful presumption of being self-sufficient, of trying to compete with God and to take his place, to decide what is good and evil, to be the master of life and death.." The Holy Father said...

    Secretary of State John Kerry has an interesting worldview if he believes that addressing “Muslim-majority” nations with the concept that climate change is the prevalent challenge for this generation. He probably wouldn’t get much agreement among the very people he thinks we should be protecting. Frankly, if Muslims were more worried about climate change perhaps there wouldn’t be such a surge in jihad, that is, if they believed that the so-called perpetrators of every evil, the West, weren’t the main reason for “global warming.” Trouble is, infidels are infidels as far as Islam is concerned and it would make no...

    On Aug. 27, I appeared on the Fox News program "The O'Reilly Factor" to discuss President Obama's legacy. Another guest, conservative author Jane Hammond Cook, began by claiming that Obama would be ranked among the bottom 15 or 20 of presidents. In response, I made the following points: You cannot judge a president's legacy during his term because evaluations change drastically over time. Harry Truman's approval ratings sank to 22 percent during his last year in office — about half of Obama's current ratings. Truman was reviled in his time, but scholars toady generally regard him as a near-great president....
  • Why The Sudden Outrage Over Ray Rice?

    Ray Rice has been fired from the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Why? That’s the million dollar question at this point. It seems to be more about political correctness and caving to political lobby’s than anything else. We’ve known for months that Rice beat up his then fiancee and knocked her unconscious. This fact resulted in a minor criminal case and a two game suspension from the NFL. Earlier this week gossip site TMZ got hold of the closed circuit video of the attack and now ESPN’s hoard of commentators is completely outraged, Rice has been fired...
