  • Robert Spencer: Grover Must Go

    Atlas Shrugs ^ | November 26, 2012 | Robert Spencer
    Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) has become the latest Republican politician to see the writing on the wall and break with anti-tax guru Grover Norquist. America has voted for socialism, and socialism is what it is going to get, and the statesmanlike Saxby is not going to be the one who stands athwart history and shouts, “Stop!” And yet, as craven as Chambliss’s capitulation to the forces of unrestrained government power is – and it is craven indeed – there is one thing the august Georgia solon has right: it’s time to break with Grover Norquist. “I care more about this...

    Doesn’t the Left love to tell us we can’t smoke, drink too much soda, use coconut oil in our popcorn, to avoid being overweight and on and on? Don’t they demand that children be allowed to have condoms in school but not aspirins? Now based on the findings of a new large sample study conducted by The New Family Structures organization and reported on by the University of Texas, the Left should add same sex parenting, especially lesbian parenting, to the ever growing list of prohibitions it dictates to us; but of course it won’t. The study is a “pull...

    Planned Parenthood has taken social media’s check-in technology to a whole new level. The ability to “check in” to establishments like restaurants, gyms, clubs, virtually anywhere, using Yelp, Foursquare, and other applications has now been applied to condoms. Before getting down and dirty, you can scan the QR code on these specially designed Planned Parenthood condoms to send information to wheredidyouwearit.com. Your “story” will then be shared on a nationwide map that pinpoints the approximate location of your safe sex, your age, relationship status, and of course, how good the experience was. ... In a campaign that started this past...

      The following was written by Gina Miller. Her opinions don’t necessarily reflect those of ScottFactor.com, but because they're here, they probably do.   Throughout most of the twentieth century, the Pravda newspaper was roughly the Russian equivalent of our leftist, state-controlled “mainstream” media, publishing only regime-approved, Communist party line content. Since undergoing a change in ownership in the early 1990s, it now offers warnings against the communism that infected the former Soviet Union and caused the deaths of millions of Russian citizens. Despite the warnings of history and those who have lived under its iron fist, communism has come...

    Benito rarely emerges from the sushi bar where he works preparing fish and meat, and making deliveries on a small white motorbike, before the middle of the night. He considers ten, eleven or even twelve hours of work to be a successful evening, yielding good money to send back to his parents and his three-year-old daughter in Mexico. “The more we work the more they pay us,” Benito said. “Most of it goes back to Mexico so that my family can eat.” But Benito, who asked us not use his last name, has a problem. He crossed the border illegally...

    Why Barack H. Obama will be the last President of the “United” States By John Gonzales Consider the current rifts in our American society. After four years of this administration’s divisive rhetoric and policies, we have been divided - then subdivided - into a disparate consortium of “voting” blocks. We are a society that identifies its members by political party, race, income brackets, social and religious affiliations, then again: pro-life, pro-choice, the 47%, the dependant class, the wealthy, millionaires (defined by this administration as anyone making more than $250,000 annually), social conservatives clinging to their guns and bibles, liberals, Christians,...

    It’s been 20 years since I sat across a conference table from the attorney representing Robert Alton Harris, a double-murderer who had spent 13 years on California’s Death Row. The attorney hoped to make the case that, despite his crimes, Harris should be spared his scheduled date with the executioner. He related that the convicted murderer was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. That he was neglected as a child. That he was abused as an adolescent. I’m sorry, I told the attorney. Your client killed two boys. He deserves to pay the forfeit for taking innocent lives. And not long...
  • A Real Threat To America

    11/26/2012 12:14:38 PM PST · by JerseySal · 13 replies
    There is a large group of radicals in the Middle East who have hijacked a religious community and are threatening the future of their people. Suicide bombers don’t care about the effects of their actions on others. They believe that their awful actions will be rewarded afterwards by their almighty ruler, Allah. They believe they will be taken to paradise. They are taught from a very young age that Americans are the real evil in the world, and that to kill them is a noble and Godly act. In the United States, we have suicide voters. These radical progressives and...

    The Texas legislature will soon consider HB 149, the Texas Liberty Preservation Act which would subject anyone in the state attempting to enforce Barack Obama’s infamous National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine. Written by Texas representative Lyle Larson, the Texas Act says that “…Texas shall not provide material support or participate in any way with the implementation of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 within the legal boundaries of the state of Texas.” (1) Incorporated into the NDAA at the demand of Barack Obama,...

    What A Future American Right Party Can Do To Win November 23, 2012 by heartiste Dissolve the Republicans. They are worse than useless; their “me-too”ism knee-jerk quickness to dance to the Left’s funeral dirge composed on their behalf is leading them right into a hole in the ground. A future party of the right is going to have to fight a different fight — one that cuts out the beating heart of leftoidism itself and squeezes it to a mash: the propagandizers. Commenter Porter at Mangans’s explains how to defund (and defang) the Left’s army of indoctrinators: Dissolve their barbell...

    Here’s a bit of good news: California’s economy is improving! Of course it is not true and this pronouncement comes from a liberal think tank, but hey it sounds so good doesn’t it? What’s laughable is that The Rockefeller Foundation and Yale professor Jacob Hacker claim this “improvement” is proven by the fact that the percentage of California’s families reporting a major economic loss last year dropped by 1.4% which is a whole .10% better than the national average. The fact that California is so economically distressed and has been for so long that there are few families left to...

    Sultan Knish ^ | Nov 25, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield
    In one of the curious ironies of history, the Democratic Party, in its present form, is animated solely by opposition to majority rule; an obsession that it attempts to disguise with insincere attempts at class warfare. There is nothing that the Democratic Party fears so much as democracy, which is why it is far more comfortable ruling through judicial rulings and the unrestricted powers of an unelected bureaucracy. Obama's two victories have given it a taste of a post-majority and post-American country ruled by a coalition of minorities, but its glee at that may be premature. The Democratic Party has...

    Brett David has been selling Lamborghinis in Miami since he was 14 years old. But never before has he sold so many super-cars to so many overseas buyers. “I haven’t sold a Lamborghini to somebody who spoke English as their primary language in months and months, ” said David, the CEO of Lamborghini Miami, founded by his father. “It’s been months and months.” The flood of overseas wealth pouring into the United States is remaking many corners of the economy, from the Manhattan condo market to the market for Abstract Expressionist paintings to wine, jewelry and fashion. But nowhere is...

    Immediately after Barack Obama’s reelection his union masters beat their chests and growled their demand for “Card Check” the decidedly anti-American dream of Big labor to use physical intimidation to force all of America to be unionized. Under this demented scheme union goons would be allowed to threaten and intimidate workers to scare them into voting to unionize thereby allowing union bosses to steal a portion of their paychecks each week in return for keeping their jobs. Democrats love this because as the crooks and lowlifes they are they look forward to union kickbacks of this extorted money which they...

    In the aftermath of President Obama's unexpected re-election, and the even more unexpected further erosion of GOP power in both the House and Senate, the usual GOP firing squad has swung into action. Some have blamed the loss on Romney's incompetent GOTV tool, Orca; others on various flavors of conservativism, from the religious right to those who favor restrictions on immigration; still others blame the problem on the infamous "47% remark" and Obama's pandering to the single mom demographic. And of course, one of the siren calls from the usual group of DC-consultant-whores and Democrat moles and turncoats, is that...

    Many of us hold assumptions about things for which we don’t have all the facts. I hear something from a trusted source, and I assume it is fact. That seems to be true about our local immigrant community. I decided to check into some beliefs about immigrants that get bantered about, and borrowed an information sheet I received from Centro Latino, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to respond to critical needs of Latinos and to bridge the cultural gap between Spanish-speaking and non-Spanish-speaking members of our community I addressed issues with more current data I found online.

    About eight years ago, I wrote a book called “What if George Bush were a Black Man?” The book was designed to analyze the vast impact that skin color has on our outcomes in a historically racist society. The summarized conclusion of the project was that disparities in the educational, economic and criminal justice systems give black men a much smaller margin of error than the one they would receive if they were white. A white kid in college caught using dope in a frat house gets a slap on the wrist. A black kid in the projects doing the...

    Back in 2001, right after September 11th, I heard a twenty-something goofball disk jockey on a Hard Rock station talking about the attacks. He said to his co-host, “I can’t believe I was ever a Democrat.” Now today, the Republican Party has been so out-maneuvered on the PR front that Mitt Romney can’t beat Barack Obama in the middle of an economic depression, among voters just like that disk jockey. Voters like that disk jockey have tended to return to the Democratic fold. Why?Lots of people are blaming this reversal in attitudes on demographics, or the weather, or the media....
