  • Why Trump Resonates & Why the left doesn’t get it in one image

    Here is the exchange that those headlines refer to: KARL: Would President Trump authorize waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques, even torture? TRUMP: I would be inclined to be very strong. When people are chopping off other people’s heads and then we’re worried about waterboarding and we can’t, because I have no doubt that that works. I have absolutely no doubt. KARL: You’d bring back waterboarding? TRUMP: …you mention waterboarding, which was such a big subject. I haven’t heard that term in a year now, because when you see the other side chopping off heads, waterboarding doesn’t sound very severe....

    Turns out he really does have a funny name. My wife and I can't say it in front of her without her bursting into uncontrollable laughter. The little PC cop in my brain wonders if disclosing this is some kind of racist "dog whistle" the left likes to crow about. Of course it isn't. My daughter doesn't really get the concept of race, much less actually express it. Yet, liberals will find racism in a turkey sandwich if you give them enough time to find the right "trigger" for it. The truth is I don't even think my daughter realizes it's the...

I can also recall that Eisenhower was so disgusted with these callused and unconcerned people that he made them face their denial by marching them all past the dead and decaying piles of corpses of the slaughtered Jews within these electrified wire compounds.

    John Perkins and His Confessions of an Economic Hit Man By Julio Severo Economist John Perkins said, “Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign ‘aid’ organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet’s natural resources. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that...

    MRC TV ^ | August 3, 2015 4:08pm ET | Jeff Dunetz
    People who pay union dues may be donating to Planned Parenthood whether they like it or not. The Free Beacon reported on Monday that three of the biggest unions in America donated a total of $435,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2014. The three unions were the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU). AFSCME and SEIU both represent public sector employees.​ But the ties between Planned Parenthood and some of America’s biggest unions go far beyond donations. Almost all of the 2014 union-donated money was spent...

The pictures of the smooth, brown, egg-sized rock are part of a new book that also contains photos of the first printer’s manuscript of the Book of Mormon. Officials with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unveiled the photos at a news conference in Salt Lake City.

The California drought is over because last weekend a special group in California made it rain.” Stewart is referring to the Koch brother’s donor conference in Dana Point, California. The event gathered 450 top Republican party donors and included five GOP presidential candidates—former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina....

    An Iranian official recently stated that no International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) personnel will be permitted to enter military or missile sites. Another stated that "no country is permitted to know the details of future inspections conducted by the IAEA." Their statements are probably consistent. There may well be other secret deals we don't know about and perhaps never will. Meanwhile, Iran is preparing to test long range ballistic missiles "to prove that the missile ban was invalid."

    In many ways, Mr. Trump is the wild card in American politics From the perspective of all of us “average Joes,” I think it is fair comment that virtually anyone running for U.S. president these days is, by definition, a shameless self-promoter—with something of a God-complex—or a loose screw. With the multitude of problems in the world, who would want the pressures that come to bear or that fish bowl existence? Although likely to flame out as shooting stars are wont to do, Mr. Trump is channeling the very real “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take this...

    Establishing more authority to government and himself. It is, as usual, all about ego. Having written on this president’s impervious stance against carbon dioxide, the most necessary component in producing oxygen and keeping the earth green, it’s redundant to say much more. However, as Obama, on Monday, installed yet another regulation to cut CO2 by 32% only one conclusion can be reached…the president is attempting to gut more than the economy, he’s bent on killing life on earth. Obama had already proven his lack of respect for human life while an Illinois state senator, cowardly voting “present” on a bill...

Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president.” Huffington Post goes on to explain that the decisions were rendered by “five Republican judges on the U.S. Supreme Court.” According to liberal left commentators, experts, political...

    Nobody wants to feel like a criminal. In fact, most people want to respect the law, but the bigger government gets, the more laws it writes, and the harder it becomes to not break the law. The Wall Street Journal reports that 1 in 3 Americans is in the FBI’s criminal database, which makes it likely that someone you know could be defined as a criminal. You may not feel they are a threat, but the government does. Perhaps your government even considers you to be a criminal. In Michigan, a lot of things will get you into trouble with...

    In the painfully slow release of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s official emails, House investigators have discovered a two-month gap. This is nearly 5,000 times the size of the famous “18 minute gap” on White House tapes during the Watergate scandal. Partly because of that 18 minute gap President Nixon ultimately resigned in 1974 to avoid being impeached. All of Clinton’s Department of State email correspondence for May and June 2012 is missing. As chance would have it, this period coincides with a time of rising tensions in Libya during which others contend that they passed warnings up the...

    The state will no longer offer new film productions taxpayer money to shoot movies in Michigan. This is an incredible development considering that film incentives passed with only one dissenting vote just seven years ago. Now that policymakers have acknowledged some limits on profligacy in the name of economic development, there are other programs that ought to be reviewed as well. A few contenders immediately come to mind. The 21st Century Jobs Fund programs have constantly changed strategies since its creation in 2005. The programs have made early-stage company grants, battery plant subsidies, matching fund grants, incubator assistance, mezzanine financing...

    In May of 2015, Minnesota enacted an omnibus firearm reform law.  The law went into effect yesterday, 1 August, 2015. One of the reforms was a change in the wording for Minnesota to recognize permits from other states.  The previous wording required that the other State's law be "substantially similar" to Minnesota's permit law.  The Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety is required to publish a list, and if the State that a person has a permit for is not on the list, then the permit is considered valid.  Here is the old law, that ceased effect on...

    "There will be blood. There will be repercussions." Such is the common threat made against those who dare take on the union juggernaut. Michigan’s State Rep. Shenelle Jackson (D-Detroit) made the threat clear in 2012 during the passage of that state’s law on worker freedom. "What you're doing today will only serve to empower [Democrats]. We will win back this chamber, possibly take the Senate back and certainly win the governorship.” Unfortunately for Rep. Jackson and her allies, the exact opposite happened. Not a single state representative or senator who voted for right-to-work lost in the general election and the...

    Michigan's Earned Income Tax Credit is a welfare-like program that transfers income from taxpayers to low-income wage earners who have little or no state tax liability. The costs vs. benefits of the program are hotly debated, but no one disputes that it does provide a real if modest benefit to working poor families. In contrast, there are heated disputes about the value of the even larger amounts this state spends on corporate welfare programs administered by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation — and there are good reasons to believe they are a waste of money. Lawmakers should keep this contrast...

Those costs are not just financial. Rep.

As unthinkable is it may be, after Lieutenant Commander Timothy White shot and killed Muslim Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, keeping Mohammad from murdering more unarmed military men, he is now being punished. I guess Lieutenant Commander White didn't get the Obama memo that killing mass-murdering Muslims is taboo in the military of which he is commander in chief. This is according to Allen West, a former congressman and retired U.S. Army...

  • MILITARY NEWS: Story of a real man and a hero to all: Captain Ed Freeman "is coming in for you"

    You're a 19 year old kid. You are critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam . It's November 11, 1967. LZ (landin...g zone) X-ray. Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense from 100 yards away, that your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in. You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out. Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has stated that he doesn’t believe in the science behind global warming. In a forum hosted by Freedom Partners on Sunday evening, a key cog in the political network of the Koch Brothers, the Texas senator stated that “the data and facts don’t support” that global warming is occurring. The moderator of the forum described Cruz’s stance as “full out denial”. The Texas senator did not disagree with that characterisation. Cruz has previously compared those who believe in global warming to “flat-Earthers.” Cruz also criticised the new regulations, set to be unveiled by the Obama...

    “The purpose of propaganda is not the personal instruction of the individual, but rather to attract public attention to certain things, the importance of which can be brought home to the masses only by this means. Here the art of propaganda consists in putting a matter so clearly and forcibly before the minds of the people as to create a general conviction regarding the reality of a certain fact…it must appeal to the feelings of the public rather than to their reasoning power”, wrote Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf. Hitler continued, “The aim of propaganda is not to try to...

    I recently read about an ESPN commentator on CNN, stating that Obama had lied to the American People, but that it was not a problem because all Presidents lie. And besides, Bush was worse. This ESPN, politico wanna-be just couldn’t understand why the American people no longer trust Barack. Apparently it is perfectly acceptable to this individual that a dope smoking, foreign aid student like Obama should be placed in THE position of Obama with grandparents Obama with grandparents responsibility to the entire world. After all, other Presidents have lied. Of course with Obama it has been elevated to an...

Marilyn Mosby doesn’t want to allow a commission to analyze the root cause of the Baltimore homicide rate; why, because -at the core- it’s her earlier activist, anti-cop, decisions that are creating the hostile city culture.Through her efforts, and those of the predominantly black city leadership, they have created a petri-dish of empowered lawlessness while simultaneously undermining the lawful authority of the police officers who are charged with controlling the chaos. Progressives of every stripe always...

    The BSA decided that it profited the organization to lose its soul so it could gain the world. Its punishment will be, I suspect, that it will end up without either. There has been much written about the Boy Scouts of America’s recent acceptance of openly homosexual scout masters. The organization has been raked over the coals by the right and accused of offering only a half-measure by the left. But few appreciate what the BSA has actually done — and the BSA has no idea what it has done to itself. Scouting has never been just about tying knots...
