  • California ... law aims to ban yet another thing liberals don't like

    In the latest episode of “Banished!” by the People’s Republic of California, Governor Jerry Brown is likely to sign a bill that prohibits restaurants from offering anything other than milk or water with their kids’ meals, under the pretense of preventing obesity. Effectively they’re telling parents they’re not capable of being trusted with their children’s health. It’s Big Brother Knows Best vs. mom and dad. They want to control what little Johnny and Susie drink with their kids’ meal. If restaurants don’t play along they could be fined up to $500. So now California isn’t just the nanny state, it’s...
  • What Is John Brennan Hiding?

    President Trump was correct in pulling back the security clearance held by former CIA Director John Brennan. It should have happened under Barack Obama. Former CIA Director John Brennan has weaponized national security status and has uncharacteristically been on a mission trashing the Trump administration while defending the Obama administration and its meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign that included trying to place a spy inside the Trump campaign. I say uncharacteristically because most of his predecessors who left the position faded into anonymity rarely to be heard from again. In fact I had to go back and look up...

    "Let's go surfing now, everybody's learning how," the Beach Boys have been telling us in song since 1962. And if you haven't started listening by now — and you live in California — perhaps it's time you did.On Monday surfing became the official sport of California.So grab a board, catch a wave and again as the Beach Boys like to say, find yourself, "sittin' on top of the world.""I am stoked that surfing is now California's official sport," declared Al Muratsuchi, state assemblyman and a dedicated surfer dude himself, after Gov. Jerry Brown put his signature to the new law...

  • Brennan's claim that he only heard about the 'Russia dossier' in the news doesn't wash

    Actual headline: Brennan caught in another LIE? Claim he heard about Russia ‘dossier’ via ‘news reports’ doesn’t WASH Deep State: On Monday, disgraced Obama CIA Director John Brennan, who recently had his security clearance revoked by POTUS Donald Trump, said he never heard anything about the infamous “Russia dossier” until he saw it in news reports. That’s the same excuse his boss, Obama, used to give when he claimed to have no additional knowledge about the plethora of scandals that occurred on his watch. But is Brennan’s claim true? Doesn’t seem like it.

    Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a break from her House campaign to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District but made up for lost time this weekend on Twitter by apologizing for banning the press from recent events while defending her move because supporters may need a “sanctuary space” away from the media. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @Ocasio2018 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Retweeted Matthew Yglesias Catching up on how this became a thing while I was gone. Biggest critique is it should‘ve been labeled “private,” even though we’d said prior it was closed to press. Genuine Q?: how should we label a free campaign event,...

    Emails show lobbyist communicating with top Cuomo officials NY Times obtained nearly 350 pages of emailsA cache of emails shows a lobbyist whose cooperation helped convict two former aides to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on corruption charges had access to top officials in the governor's administration as he sought help for clients. The New York Times obtained nearly 350 pages of emails as part of a Freedom of Information request showing aide-turned-lobbyist Todd Howe had access to top Cuomo officials for years. Howe was a key figure in federal corruption trials this year involving former Cuomo adviser Joseph Percoco and the...

    Townhall.com ^ | August 21, 2018 | Dennis Prager
    The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, did Americans a favor last week. He provided that which is most indispensable to understanding anything: clarity. "America ... was never that great," he announced. In one sentence, the governor revealed the left's true view of America. This is rare -- because leftists are masters at hiding what they really believe. For example, the left's low regard for nonwhites is well-hidden under a mountain of "anti-racist" rhetoric. But people who consistently advocate lowering standards for blacks obviously do not think highly of blacks, and people who believe in separate black dorms and separate...

    Election day for the mid-term primary is a week away. There are four contested state-wide offices: US Senate, Governor, Attorney General, and Commissioner of Agriculture. There is a lot of negative advertising out there and while some of the players are well known, others are not. So this is my attempt at bringing together any discussion on choosing the candidates to go up against their RAT opponents in the November General Election.

    Anthony Salvanto was imprisoned in a windowless office on Nov. 8, 2016. His phone was confiscated; guards escorted him to the bathroom. And all he had to look at were numbers, numbers and more numbers. It wasn’t some sadistic punishment. It was Election Day, and Salvanto, head pollster for CBS News, was one of the few experts allowed see the exit-poll data as it rolled in. Hillary Clinton held a lead all day, as most polls had predicted. But Salvanto saw a radical shift brewing. Clinton’s advantage was narrow, and many of the voters who hadn’t yet cast ballots were...

    VIENNA: The UN's nuclear watchdog said it had not seen any indication that nuclear activities in North Korea have stopped despite its pledges to denuclearise. "The continuation and further development of the DPRK's nuclear programme and related statements by the DPRK are a cause for grave concern," said a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), referring to North Korea's official name. The report, published late Monday (Aug 20), by the director general of Yukiya Amano is to be submitted to an IAEA board meeting in September. In 2009 Pyongyang expelled IAEA inspectors from its Yongbyon nuclear site and...

    Mexican authorities are investigating why a team of at least 10 cartel gunmen murdered U.S. and Canadian businessmen at a popular shopping center in Jalisco. The attack took place in the main financial district of Guadalajara, Jalisco, outside of the Punta Sao Paulo shopping center when a team of 10 gunmen riding in three SUVs pulled up and opened fire. Roughly 142 shots were fired at victims before the attackers left the scene unchallenged, information released by the Jalisco government revealed last week. The Canadian businessman, Bugge Giuseppe Benny, died at the scene. U.S. citizen Alfredo Mayorga Gudińo was rushed...

    I have a question. If you’re a young person of good will who is concerned about racial division in this nation, longs to understand how race has played a role in American history, and seeks racial reconciliation — which is to say, one of millions of politically and culturally-engaged young people in America — how many thoughtful conservative voices will you encounter compared to thoughtful progressive voices? Yes, I know that there are conservatives who’ve written outstanding and compelling works on race and culture (Thomas Sowell is indispensable, of course), but if all you’ve got is curiosity and Google, conservative...
