  • Editorial: Racist attack on Cameron beyond the pale

    Bowling Green Daily News ^ | August 15, 2018 | Editorial Board
    Kentucky attorney general candidate Daniel Cameron is a personable and intelligent man who has come a long way in 33 years of life. ... In a recent interview with the Courier Journal, Dawn Elliott, a Louisville political talk radio host and attorney who is also black, slammed Cameron for his support for President Donald Trump and told Cameron to “stop eating the ‘Coon Flakes’ the White House is serving.” This is disgusting, racist language to use against a good man who happens to be a black Republican. It’s really sad that in today’s world, if black men or women are...
  • Leftist Shareholder Activism Is Financial Terror

    A political guerrilla warfare tactic used by the Left doesn’t get the media coverage it should.  While the complicit media sleeps, the anti-gun industry liberal shareholder activists are engaging in a form of domestic terror that has banks and credit card companies altering their policies about who to do business with.  Recall the code name Operation Choke Point.  This was described as “a plot by President Obama’s Department of Justice, the Federal Deposit Insurance Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and other government agencies to cut off banking and financial services for small businesses and industries that they deemed to...

    Rush ^ | August 19, 2019 | Rush Limbaugh
    RUSH: I mentioned this piece earlier. Paul Waldman at The American Prospect, a left-wing publication. “There Will Be no Justice for Trump’s Enablers.” Now, that headline’s a little confusing. This is actually a story of hatred, and it is written in the form of anti-Trump elitism. Now, this guy Paul Waldman is a hate-filled leftist guy, but he is having to come to grips with the facts, and the facts are that the Never Trumpers have failed. The Never Trumpers haven’t succeeded. They haven’t moved their ball an inch! The Never Trumpers haven’t even been a sore spot with Trump,...

    RUSH: All right. Just right here is why I am necessary. This is why I’m needed. I mean, I’ve talked to everybody. “Slow news weekend, Rush, nothing happening out there. The biggest news I found was Jeffrey Epstein was delivered a couple of women’s panties, size 5.” You didn’t hear that? When he was in the Palm Beach County jail he requested some women’s size 5 panties and they delivered ‘em to him. You didn’t hear about that? Some people think that’s the biggest news of the weekend. Or maybe Trump wanting to buy Greenland. Those may be funny stories....
  • Jay-Z partnership is perfect cover for NFL’s ‘social justice’ pandering

    New York Post ^ | Phil Mushnick
    This week, the NFL, with its $42 million-per man at the wheel, committed another act of putting up while shutting up. It named Jay-Z and his entertainment/rep company Roc Nation to “enhance the NFL’s live game experiences and to amplify the league’s social justice efforts.” Jay-Z also will contribute to and supervise Super Bowl halftime acts. Of course, having named the fabulously wealthy and popular rapper its “social justice” monitor, no one from the NFL — certainly not Goodell — would dare read the lyrics of the scores of numbers that have brought Jay-Z his fame, fortune and, now, NFL-assigned...
  • Socialism Isn't the Solution to Unfair Drug Prices

    08/19/2019 10:38:14 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 33 replies ^ | August 19, 2019 | Stacy Washington
    President Trump recently promised that "America will never be a socialist country" -- at least not while he's in office. But some members of his administration didn't get the memo. The Department of Health and Human Services still plans to impose socialist, European-style price controls on advanced drugs administered through Medicare. The proposal would tie Medicare's drug reimbursement rates to the average prices paid by governments that impose price controls on medicines. HHS officials hope their scheme will reduce pharmaceutical spending here in America -- and force other developed nations to foot more of the bill for drug research and...

    Last year, I spoke on the issue of abortion at Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, California. During the Q&A, a young woman asked a question about rape and abortion. In the process of explaining my opposition to a rape exception to an abortion ban, I said that I believe we live in a world of trade-offs, rather than a world of problems and solutions. Upon seeing the exchange in a video posted on YouTube, Bob submitted the following question:“We live in a world of trade-offs.” Indeed we do. So answer me this. There’s a science lab that’s burning down, and...
  • Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Partnered with Vicious Anti-Semites to Plan Their Trip to Israel

    This should be a national scandal. To the extent that I care at all about Israel blocking entry to two U.S. congresswomen who partner with anti-Semites who seek its destruction, I agree with critics who argue that Bibi Netanyahu should not appear to bow to Donald TrumpÂ’s tweeted demands and that blocking Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting Israel handed them a short-term propaganda victory. But thatÂ’s not the most important part of the story. The most important element of the story is the fact that two American congresswomen shunned a bipartisan congressional delegation to Israel to go on...

    Should a country ban people who oppose its policies from entering? The vehemently anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have been banned from entering Israel, and Leftists are furious. Surely Israel, and its ally in the Oval Office, have made a major blunder, no? Not necessarily. Rep. Justin Amash fumed: “Israel should stand up to President Trump and allow our colleagues to visit. Nobody has to agree with their opinions, but it will inevitably harm U.S.-Israel relations if members of Congress are banned from the country. We must find ways to come together; there’s enough division.” Sure,...
  • TLAIB AND OMAR WEREN’T BANNED FOR DISAGREEING WITH ISRAEL-jihad advocacy is far worse than that

    FrontPage Magazine ^ | August 19, 2019 | Robert Spencer
    Their jihad advocacy is far worse than that. It is unlikely to come as a surprise to anyone except the most blinkered Leftist ideologue that Ilhan Omar’s response to being banned from entering Israel, along with her fellow antisemitic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, was outstandingly disingenuous. But she knows, when she retails her outrageous falsehoods, that the establishment media will never call her on them or reveal the true depths of her alliance with jihadis and agitation against Israel. “The irony of the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East making such a decision,” said Omar, “is that it is both an...

    Why the “enlightened” Left so ferociously hates both Trump and Israel. Golda Meir is credited with saying, “Israel is the Jew among nations.” In the speeches of global leaders and the pronouncements of the UN–– the so-called global “community” that strains out the besieged, liberal-democratic Israel gnat while swallowing whole herds of murderous tyrannical camels–– this international form of anti-Semitism is blatantly obvious behind the thread-bare veil of “anti-Zionism.” The frenzy of progressive commentary blaming Donald Trump for the recent mass shootings is just the latest hysterical outburst of hatred, one suggesting that for the left the president has become...
  • Halperin’s accusers not thrilled with book deal

    This weekend we learned that former MSNBC regular and accused serial sexual harasser Mark Halperin has landed himself a new book deal. Regan Arts will be releasing a new book by Halperin in November, providing advice on “How to Beat Trump” next year. The author remains something of a sore spot in the #MeToo movement and this news left some of his former friends and allies shaking their heads. But that was nothing compared to the reactions of some of his accusers, who feel that he’s being given a pass without doing the required walk of shame first. (Daily Beast)...

    American ^ | August 19, 2019 | T.R. Clancy
    In a textbook case of burying the lede, the Detroit News on Saturday reported that Representative Rashida Tlaib was “surrounded… Friday evening during Shabbat” by Jewish supporters “in the wake of her refusal to visit Israel under restrictions imposed by that country's government.” It took 14 paragraphs for the News to mention that Tlaib’s supporters, JVP Action (Jewish Voice for Peace), “openly supports BDS, which is fairly marginal in the Jewish institutional world, and is widely seen as anti-Israel in that world.” In other words, BDS supporters show their support for another BDS supporter. Nothing to see here. Nor is...
  • The Authorities Should Assume that Epstein was Murdered

    American ^ | August 19, 2019 | Jonathan F. Keiler
    Given the choice of choosing between human genius or human stupidity for someone being caused harm, you are almost always better off selecting stupidity. That’s a truism, and it underlies the argument that, as a result of an unfortunate string of irresponsible and negligent actions by the MCC federal jail in New York City, accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was able to kill himself in custody. However, “almost always” is not the same as “always”, and in this case logic, both legal and practical appears to point otherwise. At the very least, in investigating Epstein’s death, federal authorities should pursue the...
  • The Epstein Incident Another Blow to Government and Media Credibility

    American ^ | August 19, 2019 | John Dietrich
    A very small number of people know exactly what happened to Jeffrey Epstein on the morning of August 10. The rest of us only know what the government and media tell us. These two are sources of increasingly dubious credibility. When their accounts don't agree, or don't make sense, "conspiracy" theories flourish. "Conspiracy theorists" are routinely dismissed as being on the fringes of society. However, in this case it will be difficult to dismiss the large number of well-respected individuals on the left and right who find the official account unbelievable. Everything the government did with Epstein from his arrested...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been rising in the Democratic primary polls as progressives drift away from Bernie Sanders as old news and Joe Biden as, well, just old, resembling more the two cranky Muppet gentlemen in the balcony than the political wave of the future. Warren’s more subdued demeanor seems to have positioned her as the new adult in the room in contrast to those who, for example, think live streaming their teeth cleaning is the road to the White House To further distinguish her from Spartacus, Willie Brown’s girlfriend and the other Lilliputians in the field, and well aware...

    President Trump is accused on a minute-by-minute basis of being a tyrant, but his accusers remain free. Nothing has been taken from them, not their property nor their personal liberty. Their rights remain intact in every respect. They can speak without fear of retribution. They can assemble without fear of arrest. They can say and do the most vile and corrupt things, knowing that because the president is not a tyrant, nothing will be done to them for their crusade to erode and destroy our current social and political systems. While the president correctly identifies the propagandists in the leftist...

    When Bill Clinton successfully unseated sitting President George H.W. Bush in 1992, Clinton’s campaign manager James Carville coined the phrase, “It's the economy, stupid” as a campaign theme. Despite a 90 percent job approval rating just a year earlier after a successful ground war in Kuwait, Bush squandered his political capital by reneging on his own campaign promise from the previous election: “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Bush signed on to a Democrat tax bill, raised taxes, watched his job approval drop faster than Bill Clinton’s pants, and lost reelection in 1992. In the Trump era, it’s still the...
  • Hypocritical, Contradictory Antifa Becomes More Violent at Latest Event in Portland

    A couple of men on the far-right held an “End Domestic Terrorism” rally in Portland, Oregon on Saturday. As expected, the violent left-wing group Antifa showed up to counter protest. Ironically, the protest was about stopping their violent counter protests. Dressed in black, some wearing masks, Antifa struck at the windows of buses carrying people on the right, sprayed pepper spray at them and tried to drag them out of the bus using a hammer. They broke a window on one of the buses. At one point, they chased a man and a young girl dressed in flag clothing who had become...

    All Americans should take some comfort from the revelations of the scheme by top officials across the Obama administration to subvert the 2016 election. It has a very important silver lining. Donald Trump’s improbable election turned a klieg light on the termite-infested foundation of our Republic. Some of those vermin are mighty big.The exposure of the Clinton Campaign/Fusion GPS/John Brennan/James Comey/DOJ/FBI/State Department cabal to undermine the will of the American people in the 2016 election exposed the vast corruption at the highest levels of our kleptocratic establishmentarian government. In fact, I think a conservative case could be made that the most...
