    I’m so disgusted with the Republicans that I’m actually expecting nothing from the coming election. Nevertheless, there are a few nettlesome facts that kind of stand in the way of those who are ready to throw themselves over a cliff worrying about a Democrat comeback. In Iowa, for example, Joni Ernst is up 6 points in a race that is supposed to be “thisclose.” In Colorado, Cory Gardiner is up 8 points and Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper is down by 10. The actually embattled Mary Landrieu is down 13 points (51/38) to Bill Cassidy in Louisiana and Scott Brown is...

    Mullah Obama, Secretary of State Hanoi Kerry and defense stooge Hegel have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to ISIL. Insisting that they will not allow boots on the ground is not only pure political posturing on the part of America’s fearless triumvirate, it’s just plain stupid. They are hoping that cowardly Iraqi security forces and the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels will be America’s proxy army in the fight against fellow Muslims. Obama ordered the CIA train and arm these so-called moderate Muslims and thus was born ISIS. What in the world are these over-educated political...

It will launch this fall at one or more military bases and train a total of at least 50,000, including veterans....

The former Governor and former Vice Presidential candidate resigned from office back in 2009 and suffered one of the most crushing losses in a national election when she and Senator John McCain took on Barack Obama back in 2008, six years ago. Yet, with no public office, no real platform, no official position with the Party and no real legacy nationally or in Alaska, she still...

In so many words, that is now the increasingly potent counter to years of liberal charges that America’s problems in the world can be traced to the Bush-Cheney foreign policy — specifically the invasion of 2003. The question has now taken root, with “Iraq” serving as shorthand for everything from Iraq itself to ISIS, the Syrian mess, Benghazi, and more. Graphically illustrated by the beheadings of two American journalists, a British aid worker, ISIS armies causing chaos in the once-stabilized...

    Many FReepers, unfortunately, are not grasping the underlying reasons why the NFL is suddenly in the news over recent incidents of domestic violence and subsequent calls for Goodell to resign. They are swallowing the leftist media narrative and seeing the issue through their microcosm rather than putting everything into context. I've been flamed on various NFL threads for merely pointing what Rush Limbaugh predicted several years ago, and I actually began to realize it when the demands for ex-players' compensation for concussions and other football-related injuries began to surface. This should have been obvious to even newbies here. Please note:...

    Throughout his career, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) has built upon his reputation as an independent maverick who is willing to buck party leadership or dogma to advance his goals for America. For conservatives dubious of the feckless GOP beltway bunch, this has been a refreshing change and helped the Kentucky Senator establish himself as a true contender for the 2016 Presidential nomination. While this trait is without doubt a positive one, Rand Paul's criticism of Republican's efforts to establish voter ID laws in various states is the wrong issue to tackle and counterproductive to the overall goals of increasing genuine...

Barack could not have been happy that his own wife blew his cover, but I guess that's what he gets for marrying a...

    Old people are such a burden. Democrats seem to love death. Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage. They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel. Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm. Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death...

    As we reflect on the historic vote in Scotland this week (all votes seem to be “historic” these days, don’t they?

On the one hand, we cheer for the idea of independence, a race memory of sorts that dates back to our own War for Independence over 230 years ago. We feel a special affinity for all members of the British Empire; we speak the same language, share the same customs, even enjoy many of the same television shows. Their heroes are...

    Before the referendum on Scottish independence and in order to keep the United Kingdom from disintegrating, the leaders of the three main British parties - David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband - made generous promises in return for the Scottish people to vote No to breaking away from the Union. They promised more powers and money for Scotland. Some say that these promises have come dangerously close to Maximum devolution (Devo Max for short), which means that, except in defence and foreign affairs, the Scottish Parliament gets power over everything. A source of concern is that these promises...

    On this day in 1896, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of a Louisiana law mandating “equal but separate accommodations for the white and colored races” on railroad trains. The ruling upheld racial segregation on the federal level for the first time. In its 7-1 decision, the high tribunal struck a major blow against racial integration. Known as Plessy v. Ferguson, the ruling stood until 1954. Justice John Marshall Harlan wrote a scathing dissent: “Our Constitution is colorblind and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. In respect of civil rights, all citizens are equal before the law.” In...

    Ann Arbor Public Schools three months ago negotiated a tentative agreement with its teachers union to provide “merit pay” of just $150 annually to educators who receive a “highly effective” rating. Under a law passed in 2011, however, merit pay is considered a “prohibited subject” for collective bargaining purposes. Yet Liz Margolis, spokeswoman for Ann Arbor Public Schools, claims that the district didn’t violate the law because choosing whether to negotiate over the issue remained under the “sole authority” of the school board. Margolis said parties can discuss prohibited subjects, but the union can’t require bargaining on it. But according...

According to Brandeis, "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women's rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world," said the university's statement. "That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University's core values." [Emphasis added.] According to the Fox News article linked above, Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making...

    The question “Who started the Democrat Party?” is not an easy one to answer. We know Democrats say Thomas Jefferson because he was a member of the Democratic-Republican Party. Aside from the chronological problems with this claim – Jefferson was long out of active politics before the first actual Democrat president Andrew Jackson was elected- Jefferson stood for things that are exactly opposite of what Democrats have ever stood for. He disliked omnipotent central government and loathed an overly powerful judiciary. Clearly, the Democrat Party’s claims to have its roots in the legacy of the great Thomas Jefferson are preposterous....

    TheBlaze TV The 100-Year-Old Agreement You Need to Know About to Understand What’s Driving the Islamic State Sep. 18, 2014 8:45pm Erica Ritz Glenn Beck broke down the history of the Middle East on his television program Thursday, focusing on a nearly 100-year-old agreement that he says is integral to understanding the motivations of the Islamic State: the Sykes-Picot Agreement. If you do not understand the Sykes-Picot Agreement, Beck said, you cannot fully understand the Islamic State, or why the Israelis and the Palestinians will never reach a two-state solution. Though many go back to 1948 and the creation of...

    In Metolius, Oregon, a 72-year-old man used a .38 caliber revolver to defend himself and his wife from a drunken attacker who broke down their bedroom door.   The attacker was their 45 year old son.    One of the prime weapons in the propaganda campaign to disarm Americans is a theory of homicide in the United States.   I call it the "progressive elite" theory.   It runs like this:  The majority of people, except for the exceptional elite, are just moments away from committing a criminal homicide.  They have poor impulse control and fly into rages which escalate into homicidal rages...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/15/2014 | Anne Schieber
    The new $40 million bus line in Grand Rapids has been promoted in the media as a quicker alternative to travel, but timed trips by Capitol Confidential questioned that. Compared to travel by a car, the bus took twice as long. “We never claimed it would be faster than a car,” said Rapid Spokesperson Jennifer Kalczuk. The Rapid is the authority that runs the $40 million Silver Line BRT. She said the Silver Line saves time over a conventional bus taking the same route. Capital Confidential found a two-second difference between the two lines. Kalczuk says more riders will be...
  • Cowardly Congress Authorizes Obama to Pay Others to Fight

    Yesterday, the Senate approved a bill  to arm and train Syrian rebels, who fight against Bashar Assad, so they can eliminate ISIS, which possesses hundreds of millions of dollars, and no shortage of fighters willing to die for them.  I fail to see the wisdom in this action, or what good can come of this.  It appears cowardly, and even immoral to pay others to fight for you. The New York Times penned almost 1,800 words describing and analyzing this vote, and even got the tally wrong in the original version. Correction: September 18, 2014 An earlier version of this article...

    Judah walked among his brothers and fellow rebels and spoke to them of the thing for which they fought; “Oh my fellow soldiers, no other time remains more opportune than the present for courage and contempt of dangers; for if you now fight manfully, you may recover your liberty, which, as it is a thing of itself agreeable to all men, so it proves to be to us much more desirable, by its affording us the liberty of worshiping G-d. “Since therefore you are in such circumstances at present, you must either recover that liberty, and so regain a happy...

    Health professionals who treat burn victims are acutely aware of the necessity to treat burn injuries, particularly severe ones, as rapidly as possible. As one journal article explains it, “In severe burn injuries where both the epidermal and dermal layers of skin are destroyed, prompt wound closure is critical for favourable [sic] patient outcomes and reduced mortality rates.” A team of biomedical and mechanical engineering graduate students at the University of Toronto have developed what may at the least be considered a preliminary–but certainly extremely technologically advanced–solution to the problem of critical, temporal health intervention for burn patients. For their...
