    I’m so disgusted with the Republicans that I’m actually expecting nothing from the coming election. Nevertheless, there are a few nettlesome facts that kind of stand in the way of those who are ready to throw themselves over a cliff worrying about a Democrat comeback. In Iowa, for example, Joni Ernst is up 6 points in a race that is supposed to be “thisclose.” In Colorado, Cory Gardiner is up 8 points and Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper is down by 10. The actually embattled Mary Landrieu is down 13 points (51/38) to Bill Cassidy in Louisiana and Scott Brown is...

Meanwhile, here in America this week our own law enforcement nabbed an accused ISIS supporter from Yemen, living in Rochester, New York, who is charged with actively recruiting for ISIS and providing weapons and material support for said recruits to attack U.S. military personnel. Now the bad news: There are still countless numbers of jihadists (Muslims) here among us, and ISIS operatives have repeatedly Tweeted their plans and commands...

    When a person suffers severe trauma, minutes become precious.  Prompt medical treatment means the difference between losing a limb or keeping it, between full brain function and life confined to a wheel chair, between life and death.  I recently wrote about the percentage of people who are shot who survive.   One of the most important factors in survival is whether a person shot arrives at a medical treatment facility with a pulse and blood pressure.  If they do, chances of survival jump to about 95%.  In this example of a shooting of an intruder in Prairie Township, Ohio,  the...

    Throughout his career, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) has built upon his reputation as an independent maverick who is willing to buck party leadership or dogma to advance his goals for America. For conservatives dubious of the feckless GOP beltway bunch, this has been a refreshing change and helped the Kentucky Senator establish himself as a true contender for the 2016 Presidential nomination. While this trait is without doubt a positive one, Rand Paul's criticism of Republican's efforts to establish voter ID laws in various states is the wrong issue to tackle and counterproductive to the overall goals of increasing genuine...

    Before the referendum on Scottish independence and in order to keep the United Kingdom from disintegrating, the leaders of the three main British parties - David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband - made generous promises in return for the Scottish people to vote No to breaking away from the Union. They promised more powers and money for Scotland. Some say that these promises have come dangerously close to Maximum devolution (Devo Max for short), which means that, except in defence and foreign affairs, the Scottish Parliament gets power over everything. A source of concern is that these promises...

    The stink of nervous sweat must be filling the air in the rooms where House Democrats meet. It must be palpable.

Survival and maintaining power are the only things that matter. Never one to be concerned about looking anti-American, the extremely self-absorbed Maxine Waters had a thought cross her malevolent mind: “Let’s suck up to the Islamists who are here to kill Americans!” Her latest attacks on America came at a recent meeting of the Council...

It reflects his deepest beliefs that lies, chaos and distraction are transformation strategies that an emerging ‘star dictator’ needs. The game goes like this: Always lie to the masses, insert cheat cards throughout the deck without the players knowing and redefine what is really going on right in front of your ‘stupid’ opponent’s eyes. When the few who don’t accept or believe your trick, rise up in the first round of the game…you know nothing, deny everything, then throw your...

    In Metolius, Oregon, a 72-year-old man used a .38 caliber revolver to defend himself and his wife from a drunken attacker who broke down their bedroom door.   The attacker was their 45 year old son.    One of the prime weapons in the propaganda campaign to disarm Americans is a theory of homicide in the United States.   I call it the "progressive elite" theory.   It runs like this:  The majority of people, except for the exceptional elite, are just moments away from committing a criminal homicide.  They have poor impulse control and fly into rages which escalate into homicidal rages...

Suddenly the NFL suspended Rice indefinitely and ESPN has decided to have a “national conversation” about how we need to...

    Let the media and the politicians tell these business owners, who lost everything, that the police were too "militarized." The so-called “militarization” of police is a theme that has been repeated ad nauseam by the media. Politicians have jumped on the bandwagon, and they quickly held a September 8th hearing through the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to examine this alleged problem. What they got was testimony—mostly ignored by the media—about how military-style equipment in the hands of the police can actually save lives. At issue is the Congressionally-authorized 1033 program, which provides surplus equipment from the...

    A classical definition of “public health” describes it as the art and science of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting physical and mental health, sanitation, personal hygiene, control of infection, and organization of health services. The practice of public health derives from dim antiquity, at least with respect to sanitation and personal hygiene, which was often done for religious purposes. The Greeks—including Hippocrates—in the 4th and 5th centuries BC, are considered the first to have applied logic and right reason to the causation of disease. The Middle Ages would see various plagues, and an organized response to control further outbreaks....

    09/16/2014 11:20:16 PM PDT · by Ray76 · 5 replies
    The U.S. Constitution, as its framers understood it, was a means to an end. It was crafted and adopted for the sake of achieving the natural-law principles referred to in the Declaration of Independence. The progressives understood this very clearly as well. The robust regulatory and redistributive aims of the progressive policy agenda were inevitably at odds with the natural-law theory of the founding. This basic fact makes understandable Woodrow Wilson’s admonition (in an address ostensibly honoring Thomas Jefferson) that, “if you want to understand the real Declaration of Independence, do not repeat the preface.” Do not, in other words,...

Oddly enough it is not to be found in the Constitution at all – it is in “The Declaration of Independence.” I am talking about the preamble to the Declaration – specifically the first sentence.

For law enforcement officers throughout the nation were eagerly learning and practicing the fine art of “policing for profit,” that is, the barely legal method of confiscating money and assets...

    No one can be certain if the amnesty fever that gripped the Republican establishment has passed, or if the conspirators are just laying low and waiting for their next chance to stab us in the back. What is clear is that during the height of their self-induced mental paralysis over amnesty, Republicans in the Senate lined up to kiss the ring of Hispanics when they confirmed Julian Castro as the new Housing and Urban Development Secretary (HUD). They struck us last July 9th and now America has another vicious enemy in Barack Obama’s Cabinet. Castro has jumped from being the...

    Today's genre books are full of future dystopias, which only have one weakness: teenagers. And everybody knows that most dystopias are kind of contrived. But here are 10 lessons from real-life rebellions against repressive regimes, that we wish the creators of fictional dystopias would pay attention to. 10. The Enemy of Your Enemy Is Not Your Friend Politics makes strange bedfellows. It even makes some unacknowledged bedfellows. Any repressive government — any government at all, for that matter — will prohibit something. It could be hard drugs, or it could be booze, or it could be untaxed salt, or it...

    Lincoln Motors marketing manager Thompson hopes the campaign with the Black Greeks will boost sales, help communities.To continue in its efforts to give back to local communities, the Lincoln Motor Company has teamed with the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated (NPHC), a group of nine African-American Greek-letter organizations. The program, “The Divine Nine Driven to Give Program,” is an extension of Lincoln’s national Driven To Give program that kicked off in August. “Being able to engage with influencers on initiatives that matter most to them is key in our efforts to introduce some of our newest products, like the first-ever Lincoln...

    The NRA is reporting that an important gun law reform will be coming up for a vote this week.  From the nraila.org: Next week, the Pennsylvania Legislature returns from its summer break, and the NRA has learned that the state House of Representatives may be considering a vote on House Bill 2011 as early as next Monday.  This critical firearms preemption legislation is needed to strengthen and provide consistency in Pennsylvania’s firearm and ammunition laws throughout the state.  To date, nearly fifty municipalities have enacted illegal local gun control ordinances including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Lancaster, Reading and the state capital...
  • PBS is running a Ken Burns documentary on “The Roosevelts.” Here’s what he won’t show

    Ken Burns is at it again. The Left’s favorite propagandist has put together a 7 part series on the two Roosevelt presidents. Leaving aside what he is likely to show about Teddy Roosevelt, without seeing a minute of this presentation I’ll go out on a short strong limb and guess what will not be shown about Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Even a very superficial study of FDR shows he was a consummate phony. He preached “There is nothing to fear but fear itself,” but everything he did was presented as a fearful crisis that could only be handled by giving him...

    Irish Central reports: "Pope Francis continues to amaze. He married 20 couples on Sunday in Rome several of them “living in sin” having had children outside marriage. 'The people getting married on Sunday are couples like many others,' the diocese of Rome said in a statement. 'Some already live together, some already have children.' The Pope said marriage was 'real life, not some TV show.' In marrying them he he kicked away one of the bulwark beliefs of the sex-obsessed hierarchy in the old church, the belief that sex outside marriage was a heinous and immoral act. All of us...

    Recently we reported there are 92 million Americans out of work who didn’t look for employment last month – while there were 9 million out of work who were still looking. And you must understand, since the 92 million aren’t looking, they’re not counted as “unemployed” therefore giving the impression that American unemployment is only 6.1 percent. Well, we haven’t looked at the growth of the welfare nanny-state for sometime. As we are winding down the baseball season — which is the last season for Yankee stalwart Derek Jeter — I figured we could pay tribute to the Yankees as...

    It’s about generations of young men and women growing up in a society where a father is not an integral part of the family and the price our society pays for that My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early September. “If you count a generation as spanning 20 years,” wrote Terence P. Jeffery, an editor of CNSnews.com, “then approximately 36...
