  • Democrat hits new low; demands GOP double amputee war hero opponent “stand behind your own ads.”

    The Coach's Team ^ | 9/26/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Randy Perkins is a typical Democrat. He will say anything, insult anyone and mock anyone, even a double amputee war hero if he thinks it will get him elected. Brian Mast is his Republican opponent in the race to fill the 18th CD seat in Florida being vacated by another Democrat who is running for higher office. Like all Democrats in politics, Perkins doesn’t do patriotism well. Reverence for America and the heroes that keep our nation safe is just not in their DNA. Perkins’ insult and lower than low remark came during a candidate’s debate that the Democrat apparently...

    Oh dear Way back in the summer of 2015 - shortly after Donald Trump announced his candidacy - I was asked if he could actually win. My answer was an emphatic yes. While the media was obsessing over his style, I was arguing that people felt the country was dangerously of course. They wanted a candidate who would drop the namby-pamby political schtick and throw some real punches. If Trump could stop getting in his own way, I argued, Hillary’s glass jaw would emerge and her campaign would collapse - just as it did in 2008. My liberal friends laughed....

    The first presidential debate is tonight at Hofstra University. Hillary Clinton’s debate team is likely spending most of their time and effort trying to manufacture moments where she causes Donald Trump to become ‘unhinged.’ Clinton must prove that Trump is unqualified and lacks the temperament to be president. Trump only needs to prove he is capable of handling the pressure in order to win the debate. Some infer this means Trump will be ‘graded on the curve.’ He will be. This is completely fair given that he has just 18 months of political experience compared to Clinton's nearly 40 years....

    The legislation will require steep reductions in a variety of pollutants, including methane; HFC gases used in aerosols and air conditioning refrigerants; and soot, known as black carbon. It’s tied to $90 million in funding for the dairy industry and garbage collectors. “This bill curbs these dangerous pollutants and thereby protects public health and slows climate change,” Brown said in a statement. Dairy farmers can expect more state bureaucrats show up at their farms to do some sniffing around: The legislation also allows the Air Resources Board to regulate cow flatulence if there’s viable technology to reduce it.

Rafia Farook argues in the filing she's owed the $275,000 because she is an, "innocent third party beneficiary," of the policies, and had no role in the attack last December that killed 14 and injured 22. . . Farook has also asked the judge to order the government to pay her attorney fees.

Yet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has only good things to say about “the United States of America, the most powerful and the most generous nation on earth.” Under the guise of “investing in our people” our President went on and on, blaming “soulless” capitalism for the...

    They'll strenuously deny it, I'm sure -- and it does seem a bit far-fetched that a deeply-funded campaign would abandon 18 precious electoral votes in a state in which their candidate is within the margin of error. Then again, Trump has led in five of the last six statewide polls in Buckeyeland -- and actions speak louder than words. National Democrats are pulling up stakes in Ohio's Senate race, and now CNN notes that the state has been conspicuously absent on Hillary's travel schedule lately. "So long Ohio?" Hmmm: “It’s been 20 days since Hillary Clinton stepped foot into this...

Because Clevenger had made a couple of posts on social media criticizing Black Lives Matter, President Obama and the Charlotte rioters, Nightengale went on the warpath, demanding that the Mariners release Clevenger. The posts were harshly worded, but they weren’t inaccurate and they certainly weren’t racist. Didn’t matter. Nightengale simply labeled them as such and that’s apparently all that needs to...

    It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, mainly because it’s pretty obvious what has happened: Trump has regained momentum (if, indeed, he really ever lost it at all), aided by Cankles abrupt “fainting” spell on 9/11 and her “deplorables” comment. More important than those, however, I think Trump’s series of policy speeches with a teleprompter, in which he laid out solid, logical, and achievable programs reassured millions of Americans that, in fact, he can and should be taken seriously. These speeches nuked any notions that he “didn’t have specifics,” but also (in tried-and-true political fashion) spoke to...

    New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced a couple of days after U.S. citizen and Afghani immigrant Ahmad Khan Rahami’s terrorist attack had injured 29 in his city that this was the time to bring in more Muslim immigrants. The timing of the Mayor’s immigration comment, which had a forced, agenda-driven quality was odd. Many New Yorkers certainly wished for a brief period of reflection, at least, before plunging willy-nilly back into the quixotic pursuit of the multicultural dream. The Mayor had just met with his London political and ideological counterpart, Sadiq Khan, who’d stated that terrorism was part...

    Abort, Euthanize, or Get Out of Medicine Bioethics discourse aims to change the practice of medicine and the thrust of public policy — usually not for the better. As I have been noting, the field is increasingly targeting the right of doctors to refuse to perform an abortion, euthanize patients, and perform other procedures or issue prescriptions that violate their religious beliefs.A bit ago, I discussed a “consensus statement” on this issue in Practical Ethics, published by Oxford. Now, two internationally influential bioethicists — Jualian Savulescu and Udo Schuklenk — join forces to advocate that society legally coerce doctors to kill. First, they deconstruct medical...

The war crimes accusations centred on the widespread use of bunker-busting and incendiary bombs on the 275,000 civilians living in the rebel-held east of the city, weapons that Moscow’s accusers say were dropped by Russian aircraft.

In a video taken by an ABC News reporter, Clinton emerges from the building, holding onto the door frame while two aides hold the door open — one above her, one below her. She then takes a sideways step towards the metal railing and slowly makes her way down the stairs with an apparent Secret Service agent behind her.

    Saturday's dedication of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture brought together the president who signed into law the funding for the museum and the president who was in office during its completion. But the gathering of the 43rd and 44th first couples also saw the reuniting of two unlikely friends. Over the past eight years, former President George W. Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen becoming increasingly chummy. At public events, the two can often be found sitting next to each other, sharing a laugh or lending a hand to hold. Saturday's ceremony was...

Here are the players who protested in Week 3: Philadelphia Eagles: Safety Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback Ron Brooks each raised an arm above their heads during the national anthem prior to Sunday’s home game against the Steelers. Jenkins and Brooks made the same gesture prior to Monday’s game against the Bears. On that night, they...

    How the FDA Manipulates the Media The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been arm-twisting journalists into relinquishing their reportorial independence, our investigation reveals. Other institutions are following suit By Charles Seife | Scientific American October 2016 Issue The deal was this: NPR, along with a select group of media outlets, would get a briefing about an upcoming announcement by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a day before anyone else. But in exchange for the scoop, NPR would have to abandon its reportorial independence. The FDA would dictate whom NPR's reporter could and couldn't interview. “My editors are uncomfortable...

    Ah, there's nothing like a referendum or two to set the emotions swirling and stir up political havoc. Add a nasty election to the mix, and you have a savoury stew of rancid, small-state nationalism along Europe's southern flank. Let's start with the referendum vote in Republika Srpska, which took place on Sunday. This entity has a violent and sordid history. Officially it is part of Bosnia, and once it was part of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia cracked apart into warring pieces in 1991. On Jan. 9, 1992 the self-declared Republika Srpska, made up almost entirely of Bosnian Serbs, asserted its "independence"...
