  • Iowa Supreme Court Bans Life Imprisonment for Teen Killers [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 29 May 2016 | John Semmens
    In a 4-3 ruling, the Iowa Supreme Court banned lower courts from imposing life sentences for murders committed by teen-aged offenders. The ruling came in the case of Isaiah Richard Sweet, who was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder for fatally shooting his grandparents. Justice Brent Appel wrote that "a life sentence for a crime such as this is disproportionate. The victims were old and fairly close to a natural death. For their grandson to be sentenced to a life term that could easily amount to multiple decades is a punishment that I believe the victims themselves would have...

    Excerpt from first post So now that the primaries are essentially over, it's a great time to make bold predictions and hot takes about how the general election will turn out. EC results, vice presidential picks, indictments, whatever predictions you have go here. If you're good, you can achieve everlasting 2p2 glory much like Dvaut and his incredible Trump prediction. Or like that time goofball beat Nate Silver. You can make your own map at http://www.270towin.com/.

Remembering the brave men and women who gave their “last full measure of devotion” for our freedoms, requires us to take a moment on this Memorial Day to focus on the individuals behind the numbers and remember they are not just names on a wall. One of those individuals who gave everything he had for us was Marine Captain John J. McKenna IV who was killed on August 16, 2006 during an operation in Fallujah, Iraq. The story of John McKenna’s life and death is the story of...

    I’ll put my cards on the table. I am an unreconstructed woman who grieves at the passing of the "wolf whistle" era. I shout out loud if a man stands up or rushes to open the door for me. I literally pine for compliments from men. To be told that I looked beautiful or that my outfit was sexy would keep me on a high for weeks. But feminism has seen off these simple joys, dragging us into its dreary and oppressive world - for both sexes - where terrorised men are too afraid to compliment a woman on how...

    A national transgender advocacy organization is criticizing the Clinton campaign for promising - and then backtracking - to fill out its political questionnaire on issues of importance to the transgender community. In a news release, Trans United Fund (TUF) noted that it had informed presidential campaigns from both parties of the organization's questionnaire upon its release on April 11. Within 30 minutes, both Democratic presidential campaigns happily agreed to fill out the questionnaire. The campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders completed the questionnaire and returned it on time. But two weeks after agreeing to complete the questionnaire, the Clinton campaign...

    Treating women like sexual objects has been a lifelong M. O. for Bill Clinton. Degrading women and using them like disposable paper towels for nothing more than his sexual gratification has been what Clinton has lived for all of his life. The list of the women he has victimized goes back to his days dodging the draft while at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar in the 1960s. Clinton’s first known victim was Eileen Wellstone, 19-year-old English woman who accused Clinton of raping her after they met at pub near the campus in 1969. Clinton slithered away when she refused to...

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, the value of a moving image is incalculable. That’s why the impact of a website like Youtube should never be underestimated. Although often marginalized as an endless repository for cat videos and dwindling supply of unlicensed songs and films, the truth is that Youtube, especially since its takeover by the Internet hydra known as Google, exercises a profound influence upon how we view the world. It’s why the people behind that website devote enormous resources to sponsor presidential debates, interview the President, and generally influence the tenor of political debate within this...

My host, an upper echelon officer of the state’s Department of Corrections, drove me to the big gate at the multi-facility prison grounds. Along the way were a half-dozen subsequent checkpoints with mirrored, bulletproof windows that housed the vaguely-silhouetted guards who monitored dozens of cameras.

It was made by a Palestinian Muslim girl, Leanne Mohamad, dressed cutely in her British school uniform, giving a one-sided diatribe for a “free Palestine.” Like much of the Palestinian narrative it is full of emotional imagery with shallow false statements often employed to cover the harsh reality of Palestinian hatred and the anti-Semitism of rejecting Jewish heritage and a Jewish self-determination that has been decreed under international law

    Economist have a hard time understanding the causes of growth and wealth creation. For instance, economic theory, as much as it has tried, has yet to explain the industrial revolution. The weighty tomes of economists talk of “animal spirits,” or “the invisible hand” as if all that activity happens with no rhyme or reason. In the end they can’t explain or seem to understand the really important. This recent op ed in the WSJ gets it.

    One of the most interesting social media platforms-and aside from Facebook itself, the most popular one in the English language-is Twitter. The evangelists of this global means of communication would claim it’s responsible for catalyzing a host of revolutions within otherwise repressed dictatorships, while its critics might describe it as a meaningless echo chamber which others use to exploit journalistic credulity. Even as its user base declines and it struggles to find a viable revenue model, it can’t be denied that Twitter exerts an outsized influence, if only upon the narratives crafted by the mainstream news media. A perfect example...

In the course of discussing the event afterward, though, Williams threw some shade in the direction of the U.S. military and then-President Harry Truman by complaining that “we’re the only nation to have used them in anger” against the horrifying Axis Powers member.

It helped keep the rat population down and increased hunting and...

Joe told CNN News that, "if you look at every single major issue of the campaign, the American public agree with [the White House] position." But if the vice president’s laugh-line-du-jour were actually true, why would his fellow liberals want to do away with the midterm election before Obama supporters had the opportunity to show just how loyal they really were?

And now, in an equal opportunity bashing from the other side of the political dividing line, The Federalist senior editor David Harsanyi has offered yet another look at one idea that apparently unites America’s elitist class: millions of average Americans are irredeemably, hopelessly and unrelentingly stupid. Gruber led the elitist charge, revealing the Obama administration’s behind-the-scenes efforts to get the Affordable Healthcare Act passed....

    A Muslim family therapist in Saudi Arabia, Khaled Al-Saqaby, posted a video in which he gives advice on “wife beating,” explains that the “necessary Islamic conditions for beating must be met,” and shows that husbands must not use a long wooden rod to beat their wife but instead use a tooth-cleaning twig or handkerchief. In the video from February, which was translated into English and re-posted by the Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby begins, “Assalaam Alaykum. Allah’s blessing upon you. Welcome to our show, which will deal with wife beating. I am aware that...

    Good writer. Intelligent, succinct and readable by all. Like most things I post, good ammo and/or learning material to counter the social revolution and ruin of our Country.He also has several articles on Personal Liberty "There are very few legitimate cultural divisions in the world. Most of them are arbitrarily created, not only by political and financial elites, but also by the useful idiots and mindless acolytes infesting the sullied halls of academia. It is perhaps no mistake that cultural Marxists in the form of "social justice warriors", PC busybodies and feminists tend to create artificial divisions between people and...
  • Oh-so-respectable citizens throw rocks, injure police because Donald Trump showed up to say words

    If these are the people who don't want Trump, maybe we should have Trump. If you don’t think the comparison is fair, you’re certainly welcome to say so, but here’s the thought I just had: As you know, I believe Hillary Clinton is a horrendously awful monster of a human being, thoroughly saturated with corruption and self-interested in every way. A liar. A poseur. A rotten blotch on the landscape who seeks the presidency for her own indulgent gratification, not because she is able to do it well or because she offers any plausible reason she should be chosen for...

It’s all you will ever need to know about how a D.C. administration run by a community organizer works. “Police in riot gear and mounted patrol units faced off against a violent crowd of protesters outside a Donald Trump campaign event in Albuquerque Tuesday night.

    The Coach's Team ^ | 5/25/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The corruption of our great institutions has often been brought about by their location and nearness to the worst influences in our society. Georgetown University’s location in Washington DC, the heart of America’s political cesspool, raises an interesting question about which institution corrupted which. Did Washington corrupt the Jesuit school or was it the school and its disgusting history that helped corrupt the workings of our government? Recently uncovered historical records have revealed that during a financial crisis in its earliest days, Georgetown was forced to sell off one of the Jesuit Order’s most valuable assets to stay afloat. In...

    However much you may not like the choices, silencing your own voice is by far the worst thing you can do. As disgruntled Republican voters and disappointed Democrat voters languish over a choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, some of them are saying it’s voting for the lesser of two evils, or, they’re not voting at all. And that’s a problem. For those determined to avoid evils, they’re missing something huge.

    Whistling past the graveyard. I really don’t even know why the Democratic Party spends a dime on communication staff. Why not just hand out copies of the New York Times to everyone? It would accomplish the same purpose, and most of the time they’re all on social media posting links to the Times anyway. No matter what happens, the Times is there and ready to spin it to put the story in the best - or least bad - light for the Democrats. Those polls you’ve heard about in recent weeks that show Trump either pulling into the lead or...

    Their delicate sensitivities have been offended. Yesterday, Donald Trump released a new web ad targeting the myriad Clinton sex scandals. The spot uses the voices of Bill’s accusers who, if we heed Hillary’s advice, should always be believed. Of course, progressives are going crazy. They’re screaming about how these are “old” allegations and argue that Trump is nothing but a big meanie for bringing them up. Bill, they say, is not even running.
  • AZ: Governor Ducey Signs SB 1266, Enforcement of Firearms Preemption, into Law

    SB 1266 allows for enforcement of the state preemption statutes.  Some local governments have been ignoring the preemption law because there were no penalties provided.  SB 1266 provides for penalties so that the preemption statute can be enforced.  The penalties are not insignificant, and has a provision for terminating employment of a person who ignores the preemption law.  Here is the change in the statute. From cqstatetrack.com: H. Any ordinance, regulation, tax or rule that is enacted by a political subdivision in violation of this section is invalid and subject to a permanent injunction against the political subdivision from...
  • New York City Lets You Choose From 31 Different Gender Identities

    The Daily Caller ^ | May 24, 2016 | Peter Hasson
    Individuals living in New York City can choose from a minimum of 31 different gender identities, many of which allow them to fluctuate between some version or combination of male or female identities. Businesses that don’t respect and accommodate an individual’s chosen gender identity risk incurring six-figure fines under rules implemented by the city’s Commission on Human Rights. The list of protected gender identities is available online and includes options such as “gender bender,” “two spirit,” “third sex,” “androgynous,” “gender gifted,” and “pangender.” A city official speaking on background confirmed to The Daily Caller that all of the listed identities...
