  • Study: Americans Really, Really Hate Political Correctness

    10/11/2018 10:10:57 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 29 replies
    In one of the most encouraging studies in recent times, a group of leftist scholars out of England has found that the political correctness minefield driven by the left is wildly unpopular with Americans across virtually every category. The British study group came to these results, without aiming for them, when it took a deep-dive look at political polarization in America. An unexpected unity arose among the vast majority of Americans across race, gender and income lines in really hating today’s politically correct atmosphere — and possibly those pushing it — which could have long-term, detrimental political ramifications for the...
  • Senate Judiciary Committee clears eight of Trump's judicial nominees

    The Judiciary Committee cleared eight more judicial nominees Thursday, giving GOP leaders a total of 49 judges ready to be confirmed by the whole Senate. The votes — the first since the committee’s nasty fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh — cleared seven district court nominees and one circuit court pick. That nominee, Jonathan A. Kobes for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was approved on a party-line vote. Democrats said Mr. Kobes, who works as a lawyer for Sen. Mike Rounds, South Dakota Republican, wasn’t ready to be a judge, citing the American Bar Association’s rating...

    The United States military announced that they are grounding their entire fleet of F-35 stealth fighter jets. The drastic decision comes just two weeks after one of the jets crashed during a training mission in South Carolina. The Pentagon said that all 280 F-35's currently in service will be checked for faulty fuel tubes before they will be able to fly again. Currently, only half of those aircraft are capable of flying. "The U.S. services and international partners have temporarily suspended F-35 flight operations while the enterprise conducts a fleet-wide inspection of a fuel tube within the engine on all...

    Don’t get too excited about the 5G network being rolled out. There are many questions about this latest technological developments’ safety and its true intentions. The global rollout of 5G is now well underway and small cell towers are coming to a a street near you in the months to come. American cities will start to see 5G networks on their smart devices by the end of this year. However, the safety of this new technology is a looming question. There is actually a fight going on to stop the implementation of 5G. In Mill Valley, north of San Francisco,...

    So apparently this had liberals talking in the Twitterverse: Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court was the most contentious nomination process in decades, and it provoked fierce, lengthy debates across the United States. However, there was one group of people expected to keep quiet about it, and that would be the justices already sitting on the bench. For the most part, they did keep their opinions to themselves, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg's face during Kavanaugh's swearing-in ceremony did leave many onlookers attempting to decode what, exactly, she was thinking. Sitting between other members of the Supreme Court, Ginsburg appeared to slightly glower during...
  • Arkansas sheriff putting inmates in Nike shirts for mug shots, activists say

    EL DORADO, AR (KARK) -- According to a prominent civil rights activist, the Union County Sheriff’s Office is putting Nike shirts on its inmates for mug shots in protest of the company's deal with Colin Kaepernick. Shaun King posted an image Wednesday of 12 inmates wearing various Nike shirts. He included the caption, “putting Nike t-shirts on people they arrest and making them wear them during mugshots. Source says it is to mock Nike and Colin Kaepernick. Disgusting.” KTVE reached out to Union County Sheriff Ricky Roberts for comment and is awaiting a reply. Since the accusation became public, the...
  • The Legacy Media Has a Moral Decision to Make

    Townhall.com ^ | October 11, 2018 | John Dempsey
    The country is more divided over politics than any other time in modern American history, and the media is to blame. The legacy media has a moral decision to make. They can report both sides of the news, allowing viewers to form their own opinions and begin to soothe animosity, or they can continue on their course to destroy the country for their own political biases. For decades, the mainstream media had a stranglehold on information released to the public through only three major news networks until 1988 when The Rush Limbaugh show came into existence. The “shock jock” host...
  • Sen. Cotton: "The Schumer Political Operation" Was Behind Release Of Dr. Ford's Letter (t)

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told nationally-syndicated radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and his "political operation" was behind the leaking of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford "from the very beginning." @@ SEN. TOM COTTON (R-ARKANSAS): Hugh, I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning. We learned last week that a woman named Monica McLean was Ms. Ford’s roommate, and she was one of the so-called beach friends who encouraged Ms. Ford to go to Dianne Feinstein and the partisan Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. Well, it just turns...

    Great Read!! ...take the 10 minutes, you'll be glad. "".....If you're a conned-servative who gets sand thrown in your eyes and your kneecaps kicked off and slashed with a broken bottle and then still fights the next time by Queensberry rules, this article isn't for you.

    How Stuff Works ^ | 10/10/2018 | John Donovan
    The whole idea of birthright citizenship, in which any person born on U.S. soil is automatically a citizen, is different here than in many other countries, where citizenship is based on lineage. The idea of "birth tourism" — it's also known as "maternity tourism," and defined as travel to the U.S. for the purpose of having a child on American soil — is, to the growling anti-immigration crowd, utterly enraging. It's a back-door entry into U.S. citizenship, they say. It's happening too much. It's ruining the country. But what really irks the tight-borders bunch, and has for years, is...

    Once it becomes clear the two-state solution is finally dead, Jordan should again be asked to exercise control over suitably delineated portions of the West Bank and have the monarchy's religious role for holy sites like the Temple Mount reaffirmed President Trump’s National Security Adviser - John Bolton - has exposed the fiction that there is a legally-constituted “State of Palestine”—shredding United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and United Nations (UN) resolutions misleadingly recognising such a state when none - in fact—exists. Bolton was unequivocal in his statement:

    No more important or cathartic action to end double standards and restore equality before the law and restore faith in U.S. Government institutions than the prosecution of “high crime and misdemeanor lawbreakers” whomever they are Was Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Judge Brett Kavanaugh a total con job? It had all the earmarks of an 11th hour ambush, facilitated by the irrelevance of the lack of corroborating evidence, a predictable presumption of guilt ginned up by a media that feeds sensationalism and mob rule, and the calculated protection of the impenetrable shield of the MeToo movement. It almost worked....

    The throngs prove at each and every Trump rally that the best coverage of all is not the networks—but BEING THERE! It’s the middle of the Midterm Election Campaign and President Donald Trump is drawing tens of thousands of patriots to his rallies. That’s hundreds of thousands if you add them all up. People line up for hours to get into the rally venues and stand outside. sometimes in the chill and rain for hours as they did in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Tuesday night. Indeed, they’re even lining up the night before.

    Syrian rebel fighters have pulled the last of their heavy weapons from front-line positions in Idlib Province, meeting the deadline for a truce negotiated by Russia and Turkey — and possibly sparing the civilian population from a bloody government offensive. It was a rare act of unity for the ordinarily fractious rebel forces, who on Monday drove trucks carrying a tank, artillery and missile batteries out of their base in this small town, as a small group of international journalists looked on. “We are now standing in the demilitarized zone,” said Saif al-Raad, a spokesman for the National Liberation Front,...

    I didn’t expect it to feel so much like Christmas, but Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court Saturday really was like finding everything you wanted under the tree. It was a combination of winning and who lost that made it so sweet. The Constitution won, and the party of the whiny, screaming, hate-filled, violent mob was roundly defeated. In that sense, the country won. On an individual basis, there were many more winners and losers.The Winners:Brett Kavanaugh. He’s on the Supreme Court. While his name was smeared by shameless Democrats, he held strong and stood up for himself and...

    The Cook Political Report ^ | October 9, 2018 | Charles E. Cook
    There are a lot of great political stories out there right now, so it’s easy to miss that the biggest one might be happening below the federal level. Nationally, what appears to be the blue Democratic tidal wave is arguably really a pink wave, with women voters, donors, and candidates driving much of the movement in favor of Democrats. We are seeing eye-popping gender gaps, with the Republican edge among men dwarfed by the Democratic advantage among women. In the mid-September NBC News/Wall Street Journal national poll, men narrowly favored Republicans in preference for control of the House, 47 to...

    There’s a race to the bottom and then there’s a mutually agreed upon race to the sludge that settles at the bottom of a slough that actually can hurt people. Barack Obama’s former attorney general, Eric Holder, — who if you recall was actually found in contempt of Congress before exiting with the administration — fully disavowed former First Lady Michelle Obama’s famous phrase, “When they go low, we go high” on Tuesday and, instead advocated violence. “Michelle [Obama] always says, “When they go low, we go high,” Holder said. “No. When they go low, we kick them. Between Holder...
