  • An interviewer TRIED to get MMA fighter Ronda Rousey ANGRY about the “wage gap” and FAILED

    Ronda Rousey didn’t seem to want to take the bait from this female interviewer who was trying to get her be outraged that a male boxer would make wayyy more money than she does as a woman MMA fighter.Instead, she gave a very rational answer:(video at link)Wow. She almost sounds like a reasonable person instead of the irrational hysterical feminist the interviewer wants her to be. There’s all sorts of reasons why Mayweather would make a lot more than Ronda does, and in fact, it turns out to be a very good analogy for the wage gap because so much...
  • What is Our Alternative to Government Solutions?

    The ONLY real, valid alternative in life is freedom. Freedom is at the heart of most issues these days even if many don’t realize it. Your run-of-the-mill politician and most candidates for 2016 election see no political future in freedom. Of course that makes sense since political freedom is the absence of government and government coercion. Individual freedom or liberty is tremendously valuable and easily lost and is being drowned out by the deafening drum beats and bull horns of the Leftist MSM, government schools, government press corps, and politicians grasping for fame, fortune (your money) and power (at the...

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has, for the first time, approved a drug that uses 3D printing technology, paving the way for potential customization of drugs to suit patients' needs. The drug, made by privately held Aprecia Pharmaceuticals Co, was approved for oral use as a prescription adjunctive therapy in the treatment of epilepsy, the company said on Monday. Spritam uses Aprecia's "ZipDose" technology, a delivery system that creates premeasured doses which disintegrate in the mouth with a sip of liquid. 3D printing could help companies make products "to the specifications of an individual patient rather than (take a)...

    The Constitution can be SUCH a pain. If you’re looking for someone who will admit what the left thinks, but usually doesn’t say, John Kerry might be your new best friend. Last week, we saw him testify that his nuclear deal with Iran would most likely lead to the deaths of American citizens. It was a disgusting, and probably treasonous, moment. It was also just the beginning of Kerry’s revelations. According to everyone’s favorite Secretary of State, the Iran deal isn’t being presented as a treaty because the administration is well aware that no sane person would ratify it. As...

    Remember Ted Cruz? Way back last spring, it seemed the Texas senator could be the front-runner for the most extreme, anti-reason candidate in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. That was, of course, before Donald “All Mexicans Are Rapists” Trump captured the attention of the American populace, turning what was your standard 47-candidate presidential primary into a giant, media-fueled train wreck that the nation’s Democrats are slowly driving by with equal parts horror and delight.

    Here is legislation that should be supported by every freedom-loving American. A Texas Republican congressman, Rep. Brian Babin, last Wednesday introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act, H.R. 3314, which would immediately suspend Obama’s disastrous and dangerous refugee resettlement program, pending a complete review of its federal, state and local costs. Those costs are not just financial. Rep. Babin explained: “It is extremely unsettling that the Obama administration would continue to expand the U.S. resettlement program at such an irresponsible pace in light of our economic and national security challenges.

    Have you ever heard the phrase, "No good deed goes unpunished?" Well, leave it up to Obama's Navy to prosecute the hero of Chattanooga, rather than give him a medal. 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...

    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 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...

Arendt hypothesized that people who carry out such barbarous crimes may not be inherently...

Not for the cause itself, which is merely the latest trend in left-wing economic illiteracy, but I too once ran a business in which I thought I could do amazing things by paying people way more than their experience levels or qualifications would earn them anywhere else. It didn’t work for two reasons. First, a business can’t survive when employees can’t generate...

Even if Trump can pull in enough Low Information Votes to become president, the conservatives still lose.

The first thing I learned is that Scott Walker is eager to talk about foreign policy.

Scott Walker — and he even leads (or comes close to leading) in surveys conducted in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire.On the other hand, he is Donald Trump. I put the question of...

    A Muslim woman in Pakistan, named Nadia, left Islam and converted to Christianity. She ended up marrying up a Christian man named Aleem Masih. Her family was so enraged that they captured them, and shot Aleem to death; they shot Nadia as well, she survived but is in very critical condition, and according to the doctors she will most likely not survive. According to one Pakistani report: Nadia’s father kidnapped the couple, and he let the rickshaw driver leave while the couple remain seated in the rickshaw on gun point and then he brought the rickshaw in the farms and...

    Invading the North American mainland can be safely left in the realm of bad Hollywood films. And that's even today, with larger ships, jet cargo aircraft, and more people. While it makes for a great strategy, in the end, it's just a nonstarter. Why? The Germans had no forward base in the New World. If they had seized Iceland, any of the French protectorates in the Caribbean, or northern South America, then an invasion, while still a stretch, could have been conceivable. Without forward bases to deploy to and from, an invasion isn't going to happen.

    Sunday, August 02, 2015 A Tour of Our Decadent Civilization Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Civilizations normally go through three stages; Barbaric, Vigorous and Decadent. It's easy to find examples of barbaric and decadent civilizations. We can find all the barbaric civilizations to suit an entire faculty's worth of anthropologists in the Middle East. And then back home we can see the decadent civilization that employs their kind to bemoan the West. Vigorous is what America used to be when it was moving west, producing at record rates and becoming a world power. Decadent is what...

    On Monday, two felony charges will be unsealed against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, and the liberal media will feast on his humiliation and booking in another episode of Big Game Hunting: Lawfare Edition. After the indictments are unsealed, Paxton can surrender to be photographed, fingerprinted and booked at any of the state's 254 county jails. Kent Schaffer, one of the special prosecutors, has previously told News 8 they planned to present a third-degree charge of failing to register with the state securities board, as the law requires. They also said they planned to present a first-degree felony charge against Paxton, accusing him of securities...

    If selling babies is what we have come to be as a nation and as a people, then may God have mercy on us Just in case you may have missed it, one of the most gruesome and poignantly repulsive stories as of lately has to be Planned Parenthood’s federally subsidized marketing of aborted fetuses—our tax dollars being used at their best, right? What is America coming to? As reported by LifeNews, the first in a series of undercover video footage, shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells...

    The shadowy shyster Obama January 20, 2009, was the date; the infamous date when the destroyer of the country called the United States of America began his crusade to kill off as many citizens as possible, and as many symbols and patriotic sayings as he possibly could annihilate. If some took actual lives with his deadly thrusts, the happier he was and the more he enjoyed being the “Messiah” of doom. O1/20/09 was also the date when nearly half of the country abandoned their citizenship and bowed down to this fakir who could not even produce a legitimate birth certificate....

    Here is what I predicted a week ago: I can see the calls for commendations rising.  They are already in the comments section.  It will not be long before a political candidate will recognize that the desire to recognize the bravery of these men will resonate with the electorate.  It will not be President Obama who firsts suggests it.  My bet is that it will be Donald Trump.From the gatewaypundit.com:  A petiton was posted at the ‘We the People’ site at the White House this week asking President Barack Obama to honor Navy officer Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White and...
