    Just what is it about leftists and their fellow liberal travellers that compels them to proselytize for Socialism? In their holier-than-thou condescending style, leftists and liberals love to dictate to people about what is and isn’t moral as if their ideology is the perfect truth which all should follow. Their default position is Socialist and liberal beliefs are more enlightened and therefore, they are automatically morally superior to everyone else. Socialists and Liberals will be shocked and offended should anyone dare to question their perfect truth and will become outraged, angry and even violent should dissenters refuse to be brow-beaten...

    The western world is going to have to change the way it measures history. We had Before Christ (BC) and anno Domini (AD)...and now we have After Sanity (AS). I don't know when we should mark it's beginning, 2008? 2012? If we're not going to base it on Obama's election then at a minimum we're in the year 1 AS.

  • Anatomy of the Iran Nuclear Deal and Why Americans Hate Establishment Politicians

    The online article below appeared on NPR News today. The duplicity of our elected officials is breathtaking. Listen to the NPR story or read the article. http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/09/02/436647276/minority-rules-capitol-hill-vote-tactics-displayed-in-iran-deal The NPR piece describes quite well the mechanics or process concocted by both political parties whereby the Iran nuclear deal was deliberately transformed by congress from a treaty, which it really is, into an executive agreement. This sleight of hand was orchestrated so that congressmen, including all members of the Republican Party, could say in public to their constituents that they are vehemently opposed to the deal while simultaneously making sure the deal...

    Tuesday, September 01, 2015 The Truth About Congressional Pro-Israel Theater Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Here is how the pro-Israel theater works. Every other country has its American embassy in its capital. Except Israel. Every few years, Congress would bring up a bill or a resolution calling or even mandating that the embassy be moved to Jerusalem. Even politicians not known for their great love of the Jewish State would vote for it. Some like Biden or Kerry would even sponsor them. The bill would have a loophole allowing a president to waive it in the...

    The incorporationist doctrine should be rejected. The simple fact of its long use lends it no credibility – a bad idea is still bad, even if it has the weight of long usage behind it. When he authored the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, Thomas Jefferson based his arguments for nullification, in part, upon the compact theory of the relationship between the states and the Federal Government. According to this original understanding of the State-Federal relationship, the Constitution under which the Republic was to operate was the creation of the several states, and thus the Federal government was also the creation...

    Grand Rapids’ public bus system, The Rapid (or Interurban Transit Partnership), and its union are negotiating over a plan to freeze and close its employee retirement system. Union president Larry Hanley is adamant that the plan remain open. "This is not contract negotiation; this is a political attack on working people with no good financial reason. It's not that the agency's in trouble," Hanley told the Grand Rapids Press. "The system's not in any state of crisis. The benefits have been established for many years." It is discouraging when union officials that are supposed to be protecting their members ignore...

    Well, that didn't take long. If there are two guys in the GOP field who really don’t seem to care for each other, it’s Jeb Bush and Donald Trump. Trump labelled Bush a “low energy” person who “doesn’t really want to be doing what he’s doing” and Bush has referred to Trump as a “clown,” a “buffoon,” and an “@$$hole.” Given the animosity between them, it’s probably not surprising that the last 24 hours has seen the launch of two attack ads - one from each side. First up, Trump dings Bush on his one of his more idiotic pro-illegal...

    Oil prices have posted their strongest rally in years, jumping an astounding 27 percent in the last three trading days of August. While much of the recent price movement defies reason and is enormously magnified by speculative movements by traders to take and cover their bets on oil, still, there were a series of rumors, events, and fresh data that helped contribute to the spike. For example, on August 31, the oil markets woke up to the news that Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet his counterpart from Venezuela to discuss “possible mutual steps” to stabilize oil prices. The meeting...

    Donald Trump has taken many positions that annoy conservatives and some that infuriate conservatives; but on the issues that matter most: securing the border, making America respected and feared and stabilizing our economy, his positions are quite appealing. Therefore, with nothing left to throw at him, the GOPe’s personal choice for president, Jeb Bush, has decided that voters can be swayed away from Trump and toward him by showing us film clips of statements Trump made up to several years ago. Making believe (at least I hope so) that they don’t understand why Trump the Businessman would say things that...

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned voters against falling for GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz’s “siren song of feel-good, but politically unviable policy prescriptions.” Boehner’s remarks came at a Colorado fund-raising event. “Securing the border, defunding Planned Parenthood, killing the deal with Iran may sound good to unsophisticated ears, but they aren’t going to go anywhere,” Boehner told wealthy donors. “President Obama is going to block all of these notions. If we follow Cruz we get nothing. If we go along with the President we stand a chance of getting a piece of the action.” The “piece of the...

    The National Instant Check System (NICS)  performs a check when people buy firearms from federally licensed dealers in the United States.  It is also used to perform background checks on people applying for firearm carry permits in those states where such permits are required or offered by law.  As there are now over 15 million carry permits in the United States, and firearm sales numbers are in the 10 to 20 million range per year, you can see that the number of NICS checks is not a perfect fit for the number of firearms sold. One of the reasons...

"Will he write about Petraeus?" Clinton wrote back five minutes later. Moments later, Blumenthal sent Clinton Clemons' post mentioning the off-the-record dinner and discussing the relative political merits of Petraeus, Vice President Joe Biden and Clinton herself. "Clemons... told me more detail about [Petraeus'] attitude and interest," Blumenthal said, adding a couple of nuggets. Within four months someone decided to...

Since he jumped self-confidently into the political limelight, Donald Trump has been quite the upside-down man. Customarily, primary seasons permit each party’s voters to indulge in a rational process of elimination: First, they discover which candidate most closely agrees with them on policy, and then they ask themselves whether that person is capable of representing their ideas in public. This time around, however, this process has been disastrously inverted, a solid portion of the Republican party’s balloters having decided first who...

It would be, and has been, easy for liberals to thoughtlessly write it off as the continuation of a culture of "patriarchy" (here's a fun game of "get-yourself-called-sexist," ask them to actually define that term). Their solution to this has been to turn sex into almost literally a legal agreement at every base that gets rounded, thus giving some intrepid law student somewhere the idea to trail-blaze a whole new field of legal representation.

These 43 black homicide victims' (all murdered by other black people, with none involving a police officer as a suspect) - as well as the Indian immigrant gunned down by the black suspect - lives represent exactly why these neighborhoods are "impoverished." The life each of them led directly correlates to the blight, ruin,...

Was it just something Abedin as a Muslim found personally reprehensible, that she felt her confidant ought to be made aware of? Actions like Koran-burning presumably would have been important to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, given her stated support...

    An administrator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has suggested that police stop making arrests for shoplifting at “large” stores. They have insurance, lots of money, so let’s think “safety first” and let the thieves do their thing!!! The gentleman responsible for this remarkable flash of genius is UW-Madison Director of Community Relations, Everett Mitchell. “I don’t think [with] Target or all them other places, them big box stores that have insurance, they should be using justification, the fact that people steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police practices, right?” Uh, yes. What he said. Unwilling to...

    Perhaps the greatest nightmare for investors in a commodity stock is that the commodity in question goes the way of coal. After more than a century of dominance in the U.S. and abroad, coal appears to have entered into a structural decline. The EIA and others see coal export volumes declining, domestic U.S. demand remaining questionable, and intense competition from natural gas continuing. A funny thing happened on the way to the graveyard for coal companies though – one of the industries greatest detractors, George Soros, appears to be stepping in as a supporter. Soros, whose $24 billion fortune is...

    Jet-powered, RC 1/15th scale Airbus A380! I wonder how much he spent on this thing...  This radio-controlled Airbus A380-800 super-jumbo replica -built by German enthusiasts- has got to be the coolest RC model I've ever seen. I remember when I was a kid, being wowed by my uncle's impressive RC collection, including multi-engine stuff and 'copters... but JETS? News to me! And this one looks, sounds, and even moves at a pace that comes across as 'the real thing' easily on video... the jet roar is more than a little bit cool! The plane is marked in Singapore Airlines...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla) waded into the Planned Parenthood controversy and insisted that carving up the unborn for spare parts is both “humane and life-saving.” “First of all, what could be more humane than putting these unwanted creatures out of their misery?” the Congresswoman wondered. Saying that “I doubt that fetuses could feel pain, but even if they could the momentary pain of a medical instrument slicing the spinal cord has got to be far less painful than a lifetime of poverty and abuse as an unwanted child.” “Second, given that the law grants a woman the unrestricted right to...

    Thank You, Donald Trump, for forcing the in-your-face Obamas into the back seat of the mainstream media-led Public Relations vehicle It’s September 2015, in the newly unfurled AD era, AD meaning ‘After Donald’. Some are now noticing that when Donald Trump kicked off his campaign as a new kind of 2016 GOP presidential hopeful, he kicked President Barack Obama off the front page. Obama’s real campaign slogan was ‘Changing America by Fundamentally Transforming It’. The Donald’s: ‘Make America Great Again!’. There’s no competition in whose slogan has more crowd appeal. Up until Trump got out on the campaign trail talking...
