  • Florida Student Activists Want to 'Dismantle' NRA; Trump Is 'Disgusting'; FBI Gets a Pass

    (CNSNews.com) - The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."
  • Why Liberals Need to Look Down on Conservatives

    A common theme among progressives is that conservatives aren't just wrong; they're dumb. Reagan was dumb. G.W. Bush was dumb. Trump is dumb. "Knuckle-dragger," "mouth-breather," "stupid," and "uncultured" are typical pejoratives hurled at conservatives, who apparently tend to live in trailer parks, require dental care, handle snakes, and marry first cousins. Why, I had a liberal actor (excuse the redundancy) tell me once that I wasn't necessarily bad, just not as "evolved" as he was. (I had a great retort at the ready, but I decided just to lash him with my tail instead.) The reason for this arrogance isn't...

    Wednesday during a segment on HLN’s “SE Cupp Unfiltered” critical of former Trump chief strategist and Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon, Mediaite managing editor Colby Hall took on the “constituents of Alabama.” During the panel’s criticism of Bannon, Hall said it was time to “sort of look down our nose” at Bannon’s receptive audience at a rally he spoke at on Tuesday in Fairhope, AL. “I think it’s time to sort of look down our nose at the constituents of Alabama who apparently think a pro wrestling-mantra like Steve Bannon – like, he was literally channeling Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage...

    In his book "The Principles of Sociology", Edward Alsworth Ross wrote the following: (page 267) In the management of common affairs there is much to be said for the general as against the local political body. Too often local control sacrifices general and permanent interests to individual and immediate interests. Local control of education leaves its fate on the whole to men of less caliber and vision than those who determine it under state control. Local care of highways means less outlay on the roads of the commonwealth than sound economy demands. Local administration of forests or care of public...

    Hillary Clinton blamed her 2016 presidential election loss on a variety of sources — including Russian hackers, the Democratic Party, former FBI Director James Comey, the media, social media and misogyny — in a lengthy interview Wednesday. Clinton struck a far more defiant tone in the appearance at Recode's Code Conference than she had during her previous post-election accounts. While Clinton briefly apologized for using a private email server for official emails while she was secretary of State, much of the interview saw Clinton listing the external factors she felt led to her loss. "I was the victim of a...

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama, the instigator of rules that led to massive trashing of school lunches across America, expressed her dismay at the Trump Administration's decision to allow local school authorities to select their own menus. "What is wrong with these people?" she wanted to know. "The menus crafted under my guidance were carefully balanced for the right combinations of nutritious food." Trump Administration Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue defended the move, saying that "requiring schools to set out food that students won't eat accomplishes nothing. Rather than force everyone to conform to a standard that leads to waste...

    Microsoft won a patent for augmented reality glasses that would provide a guiding voice at mealtime – whispering for you to consider grabbing a salad for lunch, rather than a greasy burger. The patent claims a device with image data would use a sensor to detect foods – and then provide feedback information to the user on the food's nutritional information. “A see-through, head mounted display and sensing devices cooperating to provide feedback on food items detected in the device field of view,” the patent abstract reads. “Feedback can include warnings based on personal wearer needs, general nutrition information, food...

    SEOUL: North Korea accused the United States on Tuesday of pushing the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war after a pair of strategic U.S. bombers flew training drills with the South Korean and Japanese air forces in another show of strength. The two supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers were deployed amid rising tensions over North Korea's dogged pursuit of its nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of United Nations sactions and pressure from the United States. The flights of the two bombers on Monday came as U.S. President Donald Trump said he was open to meeting North Korean leader...

    FULL TITLE: United Airlines' stock price falls 2.46% in trading on Wall Street wiping $550MILLION off the company's value after violent eviction of passenger Investors on Wall Street appear to be ready to jump ship from United Airlines in the wake of the public relations debacle triggered by the forced removal of a passenger on Sunday. Shares of United Continental Holdings Inc. fell over 3 per cent in early trading on Wall Street, wiping $800million off the company's value. Just after noon local New York time, the stock recovered somewhat but was still hovering at a loss of 2.46 per...

    (Skip) I work at Stanford University but live on a farm between Fresno and Visalia. What one place values does not necessarily mean much in the other. Writing an essay no more impresses my rural neighbors than knowing how to drive a tractor or use a chainsaw is of interest to my Palo Alto colleagues. Rural people who mine, log, farm and build hold a tragic view that they are always but a day away from nature’s revenge — drought, flood or storm — and that the human experience is always a war of sorts. In part, the rural backlash...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A total of 18 people were fired from one business after joining the nation-wide protest "A Day Without Immigrants." Thousands of people participated in the movement across the country, including people in Middle Tennessee. In Nolensville, nearly 20 employees at Bradley Coatings, Incorporated told their supervisors on Wednesday they'd be taking part as well. Then, on Thursday they were told they no longer had jobs. "We are the team leaders directly under the supervisors and they informed us last night that we could not go back to work and the boss said we were fired," one employee...

    With One Tweet, Chuck Todd Reveals The Truth About the Mainstream Media It’s always the people inside a bubble who think they’re the ones with an outsider’s perspective on things. The mainstream media fits this profile perfectly. The big name press continue to deny there is anything wrong with the way they do things, or the things they choose to do. NBC’s Chuck Todd, for example, is happy to blame Donald Trump for his profession’s problems and abdicate any responsibility. They all are.Todd sent out this tweet when President Trump was going after the media during his press conference...

    Mark Zuckerberg gave new insights about how he sees Facebook’s role in informing the world today during a Live video one-on-one year-end chat with COO Sheryl Sandberg. Facebook’s CEO also lent support to employees trying to fight fake news today, though reports indicated some employees were dissatisfied by his initially tepid response to the issue. “Facebook is a new kind of platform. It’s not a traditional technology company,” he said today, mirroring his exact words from last week when Facebook launched product updates and partnerships with outside fact-checkers to fight fake news. But then he went a step further,...

    ....Clinton is so far ahead of Donald Trump in the race for the presidency that she no longer even feels the need to pay attention to the Republican nominee. Buoyed by a double digit lead in some national polls, Mrs Clinton has said she is now looking past Mr Trump entirely, and will no longer counter allegations made by her rival. "I don’t even think about responding to him anymore,” Mrs Clinton said when asked about Mr Trump’s charge that American media outlets are in cahoots with her presidential campaign.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign ignored pleas from staff members for the candidate to boost her efforts in Michigan and Wisconsin, two unexpected battleground states, The Huffington Post reported Wednesday. The two states, considered safely Democratic by virtually all pollsters ahead of the election, swung for Donald Trump on Election Day, securing the Republican his shocking victory. One senior operative told The Huffington Post that in Michigan, which Clinton is on track to lose by about 12,000 votes, her campaign's canvassing operation was one-tenth the size of Democratic candidate John Kerry's in 2004. In Wisconsin, local campaign officials were forced to raise...

    CNN's Chris Cuomo lectured his viewers on Sunday that he and other journalists have the right to possess the stolen WikiLeaks emails, but you regular folks can't. Of course, he's wrong. There's something called the First Amendment. WikiLeaks called out the anchor's untrue assertion on Twitter. CNN falsely states that it unlawful for the public--but not for CNN--to search WikiLeaks #PodestaEmails pic.twitter.com/sZMoM9iT2i— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) October 16, 2016 Social media users are rightfully annoyed by Cuomo's assertion, suspecting he's trying to ensure Americans listen to CNN's interpretation of the hacked emails instead of letting them read the messages for themselves.On Sunday, WikiLeaks released the ninth batch...

    Throughout this questioning by Ted Cruz, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson maintains that how the enemy is identified is unimportant, and that he and other intelligence and law enforcement top dogs know full well who the enemy is, and are busy foiling his plots. Cruz, in response, shreds Johnson, pointing to numerous ways in which the Obama administration’s politically correct willful ignorance led to danger signs being disregarded numerous times — danger signs that, if they had been heeded, might have prevented the Fort Hood, Boston, and Orlando jihad massacres. Johnson’s irritable arrogance here, and refusal to address the facts Cruz...

    I got a phone call from my old friend “Jane” this week. Jane and I went to high school together. We’ve kept in touch over the years as our lives took radically different directions. She became a city mouse: got married, moved to Seattle and became very involved in the sustainable movement. I became a country mouse: got married, moved to a small farm in Idaho and helped start a woodcraft business. Jane’s burning ambition is to get me to live as sustainable a life as she does. She can’t understand why I don’t embrace her vastly superior green lifestyle.

With his second term winding down, Obama has now protected more than 265 million acres of land and water, more than any other administration. A year ago, Obama designated much of the Angeles National Forest as the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. The designations, which do not include funding, were supported by groups including the nonprofit National Parks Conservation Assn., the Sierra Club, Defenders...
