  • Dunham, Duggar, Hastert: A Tale of the Left's Twisted Morality

    sgberman.com ^ | 5/30/15 | Steve Berman
    Aesop couldn’t have told this fable better.  Three sex scandals, and three different responses.  The Left celebrates admitted sexual abuse for their own, ravages those who honestly approach the subject, and withholds judgment for those who cover it up. The profane, progressive and feminist actress Lena Dunham molested her one-year-old sister when she was seven.  Dunham admitted, even praised this act, calling it “sexual exploration.”  When they were older, she also paid her sister with candles for “prolonged kisses on the lips” and masturbated in bed next to her when Dunham was 17 and her sister was just 11 years old....

    NRA-ILA ^ | May 29, 2015
    The latest dispatch from the United Kingdom’s ongoing campaign to eliminate all forms of armed self-defense seems too incredible to be true. Unfortunately, after tracking down the origin of a publicly distributed statement regarding self-defense products on the country’s “Ask the Police” website, we can confirm that British subjects continue to live at the mercy of their potential attackers. Even to the point of baffling absurdity. The statement appears in the Frequently Asked Questions section of www.askthe.police.uk – a site that is operated by the Police National Legal Database. Information provided by the PNLD and its site are used by...

    The Baltimore Post-Examiner ^ | May 30, 2015 | Doug Poppas
    On April 23 of this year Michael Brown’s family filed a lawsuit against the City of Ferguson for the wrongful death of their son, Michael Brown Jr. This civil case may not be just another frivolous attempt to gain media attention as is the case with many civil actions these days. I believe this case has a solid foundation and may bring to light some very serious questions concerning the death of Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson. Was implicit bias a factor in Brown’s death? Implicit bias can affect people’s decisions and their behavior...

    The Supreme Court has been doing a very peculiar dance around an appeal from the Ninth Circuit.   The appeal is about a preliminary injunction in the case Jackson v.  San Francisco, on two regulations.   One requires that  (1) "the handgun is stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock that has been approved by the California Department of Justice," or (2) "[t]he handgun is carried on the person of an individual over the age of 18. The second regulation bans the sale of expanding ammunition.  As Heller explicitly noted, as explained in the opinion: In Heller,...

But no one can argue over whether pro-crime policies work. 108 people were shot in New York, Baltimore and Chicago over the weekend. Many of the casualties were saved from that terrible “school-to-prison pipeline” that bedevils promising young crack dealers and instead went straight to the morgue. 56 people were shot in Chicago including...

This includes more than 41% of Blacks, more than 36% of Hispanics, more than 17% of Asians and more than 13% of whites. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell called it "a good start on the President's transformative agenda. Ideally, all output would be put into a common pot and doled out to individuals and families based on need. The notion that a person should be self-supporting is archaic. In another generation it will be completely replaced by an appreciation for the...

This is what feminism is really about: The promotion of completely irrational (but politically useful) fear. My advice to “white boys” is: Always travel in large groups and be aggressively loud, because it makes feminists freak out....

    J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. has begun layoffs that are expected to total more than 5,000 by next year, people familiar with the matter said. This latest phase of cuts started earlier this year and would eliminate at least 2% of the bank’s JPM, workforce over the next year. The moves come as the nation’s largest bank overhauls its 5,570 branches to rely more on technology and less on human tellers. Chairman and Chief Executive James Dimon said Wednesday that the average J.P. Morgan Chase branch would lose one employee over the next two years, mostly through attrition....

    Langermann’s of Baltimore LLC has filed for bankruptcy after the recent unrest in Baltimore knocked the restaurant’s finances too far out of balance. The Canton restaurant, which opened in the Can Company building in 2009, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 20 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland. The restaurant is open and the owner says he has no plans to close it. Dave McGill, a partner in Langermann’s, said the restaurant had struggled with cash flow problems, but the protests, riots and curfew following the death of Freddie Gray exacerbated those issues. The restaurant owes...

    The Republican Party doesn’t have a lunatic fringe. It has a lunatic center: a core bloc of white voters and officeholders whose extreme conservatism leads them to indulge again and again in outlandish conspiracy theories and, more seriously, proposed and enacted legislation of disgraceful callousness. The past few weeks have offered two striking examples of how dependent the Party’s base and elected officials have become on spouting and trying to enact as legislation their own worst impulses. One involves the American military’s three-month-long Jade Helm 15 combat-training exercises that will get underway in July and spread over various sparsely populated...

    My father had a Colt officers model .38 for many years.  I first remember it being in the house about 1960 or so, but he likely had it well before that.  I recall shooting it as a child, and thinking that it was powerful, and loud.  My brother was given the pistol; I did not feel slighted, as there were plenty of guns to go around.  One of the interactions that I had with the old Colt was when it was impounded when my brother got into some legal difficulties. The Colt was sent to the Crime Lab in...

    Daily Galaxy ^ | May 29, 2015 | Staff
    Astrophysicists have developed a new method for calculating the effect of Rayleigh scattering on photons, potentially allowing researchers to better understand the formation of the Universe. The CMB is the oldest light in the universe, which originated when electrons combined with protons to form the first atoms. These primordial atoms were also the first to Rayleigh scatter light. UBC theoretical cosmology graduate student Elham Alipour, UBC physicist Kris Sigurdson and Ohio State University astrophysicist Christopher Hirata probed the effect of Rayleigh scattering -- the process that makes the sky appear blue when the Sun's photons are scattered by molecules...

    Who hasn't looked up at the star-studded night sky and wondered, "Where did everything come from?" There are many ways to address this question. It was Edwin Hubble whose telescopic observations of galaxies in 1929 led to the major discovery that the universe is expanding, and that the rate of expansion is proportional to how far the galaxies are from one another. The farther apart they are, they faster they are going. This result implies there was a time about 13.75 billion years ago when the universe began in an event we now call the Big Bang. The evidence suggests...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 5/27/2015 | Michael LaFaive
    For two decades the Mackinac Center for Public Policy has recommended repealing the state’s prevailing wage law. It is an expensive mandate that artificially raises the cost of state-funded construction projects. Bills to make prevailing wage an artifact of history have been adopted by the state Senate. Mackinac Center research suggests repeal will eventually free up money for more road, school and other government construction projects. It's an example of how not all reforms that impact the budget are actually "cuts." State prevailing wage laws mandate that construction projects funded by the state pay fabricated union scale wages.

From the time the effort was initiated in 1975, progress was made, then setbacks had to be dealt with.

    Michigan law is tilted so much in favor of traditional auto dealers that the staff of the Federal Trade Commission considers it anti-competitive, and has now said so in writing. Earlier this year, Sen. Darwin Booher, R-Evart, introduced Senate Bill 268, which would slightly dent a state-imposed prohibition against direct-to-consumer sales of motor vehicles by allowing autocycle manufacturers to sell new vehicles directly to consumers. Seeking input on the measure, Booher contacted the FTC and asked for comment. In response, the staff of the FTC’s Office of Policy Planning, Bureau of Competition, and Bureau of Economics, said that Senate Bill...

Those revelations came to light in an August 2013 conversation between Mrs. Snow and her childhood friend Karen Grissom.

The political element of it is overwhelmingly a totalitarian political doctrine. And we shouldn’t, just because it has a few religious elements to it, lose sight of the bigger picture.

What’s more, vastly conflicting descriptions of its benefits and side effects are all over the Web, along with troubling reports of adulterated versions of the substance being sold online. Not surprisingly, eager beaver regulators have jumped into the fray. But what, exactly, is Kratom?

    An agency beset by corruption, incompetence and arrogance: An arrogant leader overseeing an agency with a vast level of power over millions of vulnerable taxpaying Americans is a toxic mix Apparently the arrogance of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen knows no bounds. Facing questions about the ease by which hackers accessed the tax returns of more than 100,000 Americans from February to mid-May, he remained unapologetic. “These are actually organized crime syndicates that not only we but everybody in the financial industry are dealing with,” he declared—before boasting about the agency’s ability to stop approximately half the attacks. Koskinen also offered...

    America's first digital dictator In October of 2008 Obama and the Dems threw the Fundamental Transformation of America up in garish, jaw-dropping neon lights and the world thereafter was never to be the same. The communications world now digital gave an about to be jettisoned America its first digital dictator. Back then David Axelrod astroturfing portrayed Obama’s promised Brave New World as an empty screen, one on which Obama could be projected in whatever image folk wanted him to be, history’s first free phone and easy food stamp president. Down at core, the new messiah of Hope & Change was...

    The House Republicans recently released a proposal that would dedicate an extra $1 billion annually to roads by 2019. A chunk of the extra money comes from redirecting money from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to the state’s transportation infrastructure. The MEDC is the state’s corporate welfare arm, which hands out select subsidies to corporations and oversees the film incentive program and the Pure Michigan advertising campaign. Specifically, the House GOP plan would redirect $185 million of spending on “economic development” programs to road construction and maintenance. The MEDC does not want its funding cut and responded with what is...

    The majority-minority denizens of the urban hellhole I call Baltimogadishu are getting exactly what they demanded (and deserve) for electing a 100% Afro-Marxist cabal; a cabal which viciously joins the Obama administration and media in demonizing local cops, while excusing and even sanctifying mobs of unfettered black terrorist thugs roaming and ruling the streets. Rates of mayhem and murder in Baltimore are skyrocketing through the roof, with police often surrounded and attacked by seething crowds of terrorists when they respond to calls. Given impossible work conditions, and a vacuum of official leadership or support, rank-and-file cops in Baltimore are apparently...

    A super PAC backing Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is pulling no punches with the first attack ad of the 2016 GOP presidential primary, complete with fire-breathing bald eagles and slams of Sens. Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham for their stances on government surveillance. Mimicking the aggressive style of a wrestling event promo, the one-minute spot teases the Senate debate Sunday ("Sunday! Sunday!") over expiring portions of the Patriot Act as the “greatest brawl for liberty of the century." The ad, released by America's Liberty PAC, pits a photoshopped picture of Paul’s face on a bodybuilder against President Obama, “the head...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) sought to distance himself Thursday from an essay he wrote in the 1970s that discusses rape fantasies. Michael Briggs, a spokesman for the 2016 White House contender’s campaign, called the essay a "dumb attempt at dark satire in an alternative publication,” according to CNN. Briggs added that the writing "in no way reflects his views or record on women,” saying it “was intended to attack gender stereotypes of the '70s.” The essay, published by the Vermont Freeman in 1972, discussed violent sexual fantasies. In it, Sanders wrote that a man’s “typical fantasy” is “a woman tied...
