    What in the name of John Blutarsky is happening on our university campuses?A new survey from the Pew Research Center reveals that a shocking number of Millennials support curbing free speech.According to their findings, 40 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 believe the government should be able to ban any speech that is offensive to minority groups.We have apparently raised a generation of snowflakes so fragile that their psyches can’t handle offensive words or photographs or images.It seems the only free speech this perpetually offended generation supports is speech they agree with.

    Wearing full military gear and wielding high-powered rifles, Delaware state police broke into a home Friday, shooting and killing a dog who was running from them in fear. The entry was captured on Mark Reedy’s security camera, who says police were looking for guns, but the shooting takes place off-frame. The video shows the dog running up to the door as they are trying to break in, yelling “state police … search warrant.” The dog is barking and it’s tail is wagging but as soon as it sees a giant shield enter the home with a gun pointing from behind...

    How could America have twice elected a president who not only can't stand America but also won't perform his constitutional duty of defending it? Even some former administration officials and rank-and-file Democrats are finally recognizing that there is something strange about a commander in chief who declines to listen to his advisers on terrorism, won't read their daily briefings and is uninterested in their threat assessments. It's sad that so many refused to take Obama seriously when he promised to fundamentally transform America. It's inexcusable that the media and so many naive voters believed that his radical past and his...

    [..]This ignores the fact of how stupid terrorist watch lists are because they don't do the job the government claims they're supposed to. The Intercept (which isn't exactly a conservative or libertarian publication) got hold of the National Counterterrorism Center guidelines for putting people on watch lists last year. Some of these guidelines includes social media and what 'walk-ins' say, even if government employees are told not to use hunches.So, yes, you might be on a terrorist watch list if you tweet, Facebook, or use other social media sites to post an article someone doesn't like. The rules are so...

    Contender for the Democratic presidential nomination Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) made an effort to define democratic socialism in a speech to Georgetown University students this week. "Unlike the socialism imposed by Lenin or Mao, democratic socialism allows voters to select who will rule over them," Sanders said. "With the backing of the electorate, these rulers will redress the inequities stemming from inequalities that are no fault of the individual." Sanders asserted "the notion that a person's hard work might entitle him to a disproportionate share of the world's wealth is just plain wrong. A person's ability to work hard is...

    Last month the Obama administration's Labor Department issued Interpretive Bulletin 2015-01, which tells pension funds what factors to use when choosing investments, including climate change. Only a few tax lawyers noticed, but with U.S. pensions at $9 trillion, this is a gross power grab that will hurt the retirees it claims to protect. This government is essentially saying: Don't you dare invest in anything that causes or is hurt by climate change, or you'll be sued for failing your fiduciary responsibilities. Energy, utilities and industrials are 20% of the market. How can pension funds now own any of them? Pushing...

That trade pact can no longer be amended. The up-or-down votes in the House and Senate will take place as early as January 2016. So what’s in the TPP?

    Despite France's draconian gun laws, terrorists have once again proven that only good people obey bad laws, and they do so to their own detriment. It is important to realize that the best security practices, people, and technology governments have to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, institutions, and technologies thwart the next attack. [..] Thankfully, the reality of these attacks is that they can be deterred, disrupted, and even defeated by properly trained and well-armed civilian populous.

    While acknowledging that the law requiring medical practitioners to conduct abortions may violate the moral objections of some individuals, a Swedish court ruled that "a citizen's legal obligation to obey the law takes precedence over a private right of conscience." The case arose when nurse Ellinor Grimmark sought to be excused from assisting in abortion procedures. "I did not seek to impose my will upon the patients seeking these procedures," Grimmark said. "I only sought to avoid complicity in this crime against the human rights of the little children." Judge Lief Niflheim was not entirely unsympathetic to Grimmark's position, but...

Curiously, nine of the 106 people indicted last week were not among the 177 people arrested six months ago, according to The Associated Press. AP reported that none of nine has been arrested. McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna has said the grand jury will return to consider charges against the other 80 bikers arrested six months ago, possibly as soon as Wednesday.

Brenda Smith-Lezama, vice president of the Missouri Students Association, took pride in the rising groundswell of support for censorship saying "it's about time the youth of this nation take a stand against the verbal pollution that hides behind the First Amendment.

An additional 1,000 are planned in China, India, Japan, Indonesia and other countries. The latest projections are that 40% of the added power generation in Southeast Asia by 2040 will be coal-fired.

The Daily Beast theoretically agreed that “confiscation on a massive scale” may be “the only way to solve American gun violence,” but they pointed out that it was not realistic and suggested Hillary risks causing irreparable divisions by talking about confiscation then mocking gun owners as conspiracy theorists waiting for “black helicopters” to come take their guns away....

Like Lerner, Clinton likely will be deemed above the law.

    The American justice system is not without its flaws as we’ve seen all too many times. A grievous crime is committed and the perpetrator is never discovered. Sometimes there is a suspect who seems to be the perfect candidate but a grand jury doesn’t find sufficient evidence for the prosecutors to move forward. And in other cases, even if you get them to trial a jury doesn’t see things the same way as the public. (O.J anyone?) In very rare cases a pardon can be issued and the system seems to have been short sheeted. (Democrats will always cite...

    The Florida senator said he does not always agree with the GOP front-runner, but calls for him to be removed as host are excessive. Its a free country, Rubio said on Fox News Your World with Neil Cavuto on Wednesday. I dont agree with everything that Donald Trump says, I dont agree with everything the other side says, either. But if you dont like it, dont watch the show. Its on at 11:35 on Saturday nights and there are plenty of other things you can watch, or you can just go to bed early, he added. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.)...

    President Obamas dismissal of security concerns about former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons unsecured personal email has rankled the FBI. For the President to flatly say that these unsecured emails posed no security problem is a judgment rendered in the absence of facts, complained an FBI official requesting anonymity. Clearly, the matter merits an investigation as to whether any damage might have been done. Irked that an agency under the Executive branch would contradict him, Obama reminded everyone that I am the nations chief enforcer of the law. If I dont think there is anything to prosecute on an issue...

    LAS VEGAS - Private land overlooking the secret base at Area 51 has officially been taken from the owners and transferred to the United States Air Force. Last month, the U.S. Air Force condemned the Groom Mine property when the family who owns it rejected a government buyout they felt was unjust. The I-Team broke the story of the family's fight with the government. The Sheahan family, which until now owned the mine, knew they faced an uphill fight. They also expected the government would probably take the land through eminent domain even though the Sheahan's owned it since Abe...

    This week the US Department of Justice announced the formation of a new enforcement unit to combat domestic terrorism. According to Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, the focus of this new agency will be the eradication of anti-government views, racism, bigotry and anarchy, and other despicable beliefs. While the media has been sensationalizing the so-called threat from Islamic terrorists, it is the Administrations view that domestic right-wing political groups pose a much more insidious danger, Carlin contended. With the publics attention diverted to distant shores, home-grown opponents of our government have been free to work on their evil plans undisturbed....

    Conservatives, Christian and non-Christian alike, share concerns about civil and religious liberty, abortion and the sanctity of human life, human trafficking and pornography and how they damage families, fiscal responsibility in government, and poverty. What many dont know is that there are links between climate alarmism and every one of these issues. Let me take them in reverse order. First, climate alarmism undermines fiscal responsibility in government. Not only do governments around the world spend nearly $1 billion per day just on research into climate change, but also policies meant to reduce global warming would...

    Just two weeks after it announced a plan to globalize local police departments through the Strong Cities Network, the Obama administration has added a new tool in its fight against violent extremism.

The person who heads this new effort will target extremists who plan mass shootings, hold racist, bigoted or anti-government views or see themselves as sovereign citizens. The new position at the Justice Department, dubbed the domestic terrorism counsel, will serve as the main point of contact...

    The Strident Conservative ^ | October 14, 2015 | Nelson Hultberg
    In the early days of mans history, tyranny was ideologically crude and built upon openly seizing power and suppression of the people. Not a lot of fancy theories were trotted out to justify it. Men like Akhenaten, Attila, Genghis Khan, Henry VIII, and Cesare Borgia ruled because they were brazen enough to want to rule, strong enough to recruit the needed henchmen, and smart enough to know that most people would let them be dictatorial. But with the coming of modernity (circa 1800 A.D.), tyranny has had to take on a more subtle and sophisticated approach. It now needs to...
