    The great Norman Podhoretz, in his masterful book, “Why Are Jews Liberals,” from whence this article is drawn, seems to conclude...that the Jews have only managed to exist through their adoption of “universalist” ideas—what I would call, Statist ideas—which supremely exist and shed their spoors mostly on the Left side of a leftist-stained table cloth. We are talking civilly at table here, okay? No conspiracies of “Jew Lizard Masters From Space,” or the Rothschild Illuminati, or anything crazy, okay? We are just—for the moment—talking here. Okay; here’s THE problem: even though pro-Jew and pro-Israel forces have moved to the right,...

    Based on current delegate counts and poll numbers Ted Cruz will be mathematically unable to reach the delegate count required for him to win the Republican Presidential nomination.  By the end April it will be clear that Ted Cruz has no chance of reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination.Actually in only 3 weeks, on April 26th, it will be clear that Ted Cruz cannot win. (chart from Google) Currently Cruz has only 463 delegates. Even if Cruz wins Wisconsin, which is a state whose delegates are winner take most (WTM), he still will not have enough delegates to...

    'Taco Liberty Bell' (1996): Taco Bell Corp placed a full-page ad in seven major newspapers announcing it had 'bought the Liberty Bell' and was renaming it the 'Taco Liberty Bell' in-order to help pay-down the national debt. Predictably, angry (+ slightly naive and/or lacking a calendar) citizens melted the phones at the offices of the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell is kept. Taco Bell executives let them stew for a few hours before revealing it was all an April Fools gag at noon.  President Clinton's quick-on-his-feet White House press secretary Mike McCurry responded when asked about the...

    CONCORD HYMN ("Hymn: Sung at the Completion of the Concord Monument, April 19, 1836") ~Ralph Waldo Emerson By the rude bridge that arched the flood, Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood And fired the shot heard round the world. The foe long since in silence slept; Alike the conqueror silent sleeps; And Time the ruined bridge has swept Down the dark stream which seaward creeps. On this green bank, by this soft stream, We set today a votive stone; That memory may their deed redeem, When, like our sires, our sons are gone....

    Although White House Chief Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler claims to have learned about the IRS audit scandal only last month, she had three unprecedented one-on-one meetings last year with the Treasury Department’s chief lawyer, who has known about the inspector general’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative nonprofits since at least June 2012. The Treasury lawyer in turn has a long history of extreme left-wing agitation. Christopher J. Meade, Treasury Chief Counsel, met with Ruemmler on September 27th, December 11th, and December 13th, 2012, according to White House Visitor Records requests. The two had never met one-on-one prior...
  • NPR: Hitler's Birthday Might Have Motivated Right to Bomb Boston Marathon

    What a beautiful racket the left has going. Those of us who dare not be liberal are literally paying, through our tax dollars, for NPR to smear us like this: Partial transcript: "The thinking, as we have been reporting, is that this is a domestic, extremist attack and officials are leaning that way largely because of the timing of the attack. April is a big month for anti-government and right-wing individuals. There's the Columbine anniversary, there's Hitler's birthday, there's the Oklahoma City bombing, the assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco."

    Google’s decision to mark Easter Sunday with a doodle of leftist icon Cesar Chavez atop its search engine angered some users in what they see as a snub of Jesus on the day Christians mark his resurrection. However, Google executives offered quick apologies for the snub, issuing this statement: "We at Google honor Easter and are mortified that our Doodle of Chavez in any way upstaged this Holy Christian Holiday. We are reviewing the way Google Doodles are chosen on a go-forward basis." The statement appeared to appease some high-profile Christian figures. "I'm not much of a fan of Google,"...

    The White House announced Tuesday it would not release its budget request until early April, and unloaded on the GOP’s 10-year budget plan, which was designed by House budget chief Rep. Paul Ryan. Ryan’s budget would punish middle-class Americans by cutting taxes on the wealthy by a third, claimed White House press secretary Jay Carney. “The burden is doubled or even tripled on everyone else,” he claimed. Ryan’s “voucherization” reform of federal health-care programs “does not nothing to deal with the fundamental problem, which is rising health-care costs, but actually exacerbates that problem,” Carney claimed, as he repeatedly reminded reporters...

    The Obama administration will release its 2014 budget more than two months late on April 8, according to congressional sources. Pentagon officials have informed the House Armed Services Committee that the budget is coming on April 8, said Claude Chafin, a committee spokesman. A Democratic congressional source confirmed that is the planned release date. The April release means President Obama´s budget will be nine weeks late, as it was due by law on Feb. 4, the first Monday in February. Republicans have slammed Obama for delaying the budget since the first missed deadline.

    This Friday, May 4 2012 may be one of the most important days for economic data so far this year. The unemployment data for the month of April 2012 will be released and it will set the tone for the rest of the summer. The Bureau of Labor Statistics will unveil the latest unemployment figures at 8:30 ET and based on the initial jobless claims numbers for the month of April, we believe it’s possible the lower range of 100,000 to 120,000 is more likely than some of the mid-range economic data predictions we’ve seen at 200,000 or more.
