    It’s pretty hard to succeed as a constitutional conservative when both wings of the Uniparty are gunning for you.

    Very true. But it always takes courage to represent constitutional conservatism in the vast ideological wasteland that is now Washington, DC. Unless there are compelling personal reasons for Bachmann to step down, consider her departure a disappointing loss for the cause.

    She always underperformed in her seat.

    Could that be at least in part because she was "targeted" to extremes by the 'Rats?

    I’m sure we haven’t heard the last from her. Too bad her district forced her to retire.

    Her district did not force Bachmann to retire. She did not lose an election. She announced she wasn't going to run for re-election many months ago.

    Would anyone have any idea as to the real reason(s) Bachmann stepped down?

    It's not the first time Bachmann has made controversial comments about Islam. In 2012, she said that Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin had ties to the extremist Muslim Brotherhood.

    If that's a controversial comment by Bachmann, the author of this piece must be on some other planet! Abedin's immediate family members, including parents, are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood or Muslim Sisterhood. And, BTW, the relationship between Abedin and HRC has been reputed to be more than merely "aide."

  • De Blasio Worked for Sandinistas, Honeymooned in Cuba

    Bill de Blasio (born Warren Wilhelm, Jr.;[1] May 8, 1961)

    Yes, I knew that from the time of his mayoral candidacy in 2013. The presumption here is that he changed his name for purely political reasons - much better to run in NYC with an Italian name than with a German name - since he had planned a career in leftist NYC electoral politics from a very young age.

    Also knew about his trip to Nicaragua in support of the Sandanistas during the Reagan years. But the honeymoon in Cuba is news to me. Color his biography RED.

    BTW, the posted article is from sometime last year, because DeB is referenced as a "mayoral candidate."

    Yes, I caught it. Saw the brief talk with Mike Huckabee about her. Says he feels sorry for Douglas and he doesn't hate anyone. That must be the preacher in Huckabee doing the talking.

    Also, as I had hinted, the "senior Republican on the U of M Regents" issued a statement condemning the article. (Suppose a statement from the Board as a whole won't be forthcoming because the 'Rats have the majority.)

    I see where Bobby Shostak, chair of the Michigan state GOP, denounced the "hate the Republicans" article and called for Prof. Douglas' resignation from her position as Communications chair. Congratulations to him.

    It would be appropriate for the governor, who happens to be a Republican and who happens to be a U of M alum with three degrees from the school, to come out with a similar statement. Dittos for the Republicans on the U of M Regents.

    Was wondering since this story came out which publication would stoop so low as to print it. Now I see it's "In These Times." Never heard of it, but a background check on its editor and publisher might be very revealing for ultraleft connections.

    Jeff Siegel, writer of the posted article, is way off the wall himself in ripping into Sen. Marco Rubio in this vicious manner. What Siegel never mentions in his piece is the suffering and oppression that Rubio's own family experienced in Cuba at the hands of the Castro regime, a predicament which caused his parents and many other decent Cuban people to escape Cuba by coming to the US under dire circumstances. Rubio's hatred of the Castro regime is well-founded: it's in his DNA, as is his sharp opposition to Obama's new moves vis-à-vis Cuba. Yet Siegel callously neglects this history as if it didn't happen.

    But you just try to get the ‘cats’ in line behind one candidate, then watch as they each act like someone just stepped on their tail.

    Yes, what you are saying is a political axiom: people advocating for less government, who comprise the majority of the "Tea Party" type grassroots Republicans, tend to be more difficult to "herd" into a massive single advocacy group, simply because they tend to be individualists. But the urgency of the moment hopefully will overcome that predilection.

    Speaking of the Tea Party, we are overdue for some massive rallies against amnesty for illegals and against Obamacare, for starters.

    Michelle Malkin hits the bullseye here and, judging from their shows yesterday, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin agree strongly with her misgivings about the Jeb Bush candidacy.

    Of course, the GOP has nominated establishment types in the last two presidential election cycles and both nominees have gone down to Obama in the general elections (if you believe that the reported vote totals were anywhere near truthful, especially in the 2012 race). Seems as if the one of the problems for the grassroots conservative wing of the Party in 2012 in the primary season was that there were several attractive candidates who split that vote vs. the one viable establishment candidate (Romney). That split among the conservative candidates, combined with the unfortunate "winner take all" rules for apportioning delegates in many state primaries, combined also with allowing 'Rats to cast ballots in some states, gave Romney a large advantage.

    The rules for the 2016 primary season will undoubtedly favor the establishment again. But the key for the grassroots "Tea Party" wing in the 2016 primaries will be to get behind a single candidate. That's the only way to beat the biased system and nominate an unabashed conservative not afraid to fight against amnesty for illegals and to fight tooth and nail for repeal of Obamacare, lock, stock, and barrel. Such a candidate would beat the 'Rats decisively in the general election.

    Jeb Bush isn't that candidate!

    The Irish are a wonderful people who have given much to humanity and I’m shocked that something like this could be going on in Ireland.

    Yes, some Irish are wonderful people, but remember that the Irish government never officially entered WWII against the Nazis, mostly because of their (justifiable) historical animus against the Brits. But there was also a pro-Nazi faction in Ireland at the time.

    Perhaps someone can tell us how many Arab Muslims have immigrated to Ireland. That might be the influence that is sparking this new wave of anti-Semitism. It may not be many, but remember that Ireland has a small population, with a sizable proportion having immigrated out in recent decades. So it wouldn't take too many Arab newcomers to give them political clout and thereby get the government to wink at their vile crimes, as has been the case in quite a number of other western European countries, especially France.

    The author of this posted article is right on target to highlight the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiments in Western Europe, but he is remiss in not even mentioning the Arab Moslem immigration to Europe, which is a very significant factor in the big picture.

    I don’t recognize “hate crimes”. That’s a neologism that the left made up in order to undermine the concept of equal protection of the laws.

    I understand where you are coming from there. Ideally, there should be no such phrase as "hate crime" in the law books. If a crime happens to be motivated by hate, it should be considered as an exacerbating factor at sentencing after conviction.

    But in the real world, in the New York criminal code, "hate crime" is a legitimate term, and that's what I was referring to. Unfortunately, unless this dead perp had friends who aided him in this, we will never see a legal proceeding in this case where the motivation will be made public.

    No hate crime here! /S

    Obviously, it was a hate crime (although the Sharptons and Jacksons and others in their crowd can't conceive of black racism and anti-Semitism). But it could also be considered a terror attack. We possibly will never know, but the perp could have been influenced by the Palestinian terror attack in a Jerusalem synagogue a few weeks ago ("copy cat" crime?).

    In all probability, an honest error on the part of the Israeli reporter writing the posted story. More likely, the perp was shot, then taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries and was pronounced dead there.

    Why was he shot by police as he was being treated for his injuries? Seems kinda cruel?

    Yes, I noticed that as well. I think it was an error by the Israeli writer. From what I heard in a radio report, the perp was shot by police in or near the Chabad facility. My guess is that he was then taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, where he was pronounced dead.

    I wouldn't like to think of the riots that would be touched off if he were shot by police in the hospital. It would probably be a repeat of Crown Heights c. 1991.

    To the Jewish people who vote democrat this is what happens.

    The victim, from what I gather, was a Hasidic (ultra-religious) Jew. This group has voted predominantly Republican is presidential elections over the last several decades. Of course, I couldn't tell you how the particular individual who was injured votes, and it's not relevant to the incident. His attacker wasn't interested.

    What is relevant, though, is that black Americans are statistically more likely to be anti-Semitic than any other racial/ethnic/nationality group in the country, other than Arabs. The dead perp is an extreme example of this reality.

    Of course Gallup, as with all lefty news and polling organizations, doesn't quite tell the truth in their headline. As they almost always do, they claim to be surveying "Americans." But in checking out their site regarding their methodology, the polling was merely done be random telephone numbers, so they undoubtedly reached some alien respondents. There was apparently no screening for American citizenship, yet the question of party identification should be a question for citizens only.

    As usual with the left, they don't give a darn about American citizenship regarding participation in the American political and public opinion process. Allowing aliens into their poll and claiming them as "Americans" is dishonest on the part of Gallup. We know their purpose: to negate the meaning of American citizenship so as to ultimately allow aliens to wreck the integrity of our electoral system by participating in it unlawfully. But until and unless we bring their tactics to public scrutiny, they will continue with their deceptions.

    BTW, their poll result shows the GOP leading the 'Rats in party ID by a mere one point, which is probably slightly higher when aliens are weeded out as they should have been.

    If a third of black voters start defecting, [the Democrats] are finished.

    Won't take anywhere near that percentage. If only 10% of black voters went from 'Rat to GOP, putting the black GOP vote around 20% - and the fraud machine was stymied somewhat - the 'Rats would lose so many statewide races that their chances of electing presidents and controlling either house of Congress would be slim to none. (Getting tough on illegal immigration would be an issue that would resonate in the black community, but it probably won't happen with the current RINO bunch in Washington.)

    DeBlasio:

    You cannot look at the incident in Missouri; another incident in Cleveland, Ohio; and another incident in New York City all happening in the space of weeks and act like there's not a problem."

    Among numerous other flaws, DeBlasio seems have a lack of fundamental understanding of probability and statistics.

    With over three hundred million people in the country, millions of black youths and hundreds of thousands of police officers, three fatal shootings of black youths by police officers in a matter of weeks (which I presume is what he's referring to here) may just be an unusual chronological clustering of such events, and those events may have received an unusual degree of national publicity. The more important statistic is the total number of such incidents over a longer period of time nationally. (Not trying to imply that the circumstances are alike in each case.) I saw a figure of 100+ deaths of black people (of all ages) killed by law enforcement nationally over an entire year, whereas at the same time 300+ whites were killed under these circumstances.

    So although blacks were killed at a rate somewhat higher than whites by law enforcement - when considering the percentage of each in the general population - one can't logically deduce from these numbers that black youths are specifically targeted, as DeBlasio seems to have done, in concluding "there is a problem." Rather, DeBlasio is trying to take advantage of the recent well-publicized cases to gain browning points (no pun intended) with the NYC black community. He sees himself as the white Al Sharpton.

    From the posted article:

    Democrats have been worried about the African-American vote in Louisiana for months. But what really doomed Sen. Mary Landrieu's reelection bid was the near-monolithic white vote against her.

    This is the kind of spin that is soooo typical with pro-'Rat writers and commentators on electoral politics.

    First, Democrats don't worry about the black vote in terms of percentage of votes for each candidate. They take for granted that 90+% of it will go to them. What they do worry about is the number of black voters who will cast ballots. That's why their fraud machine is geared to manufacturing votes that wouldn't otherwise exist in predominantly African-American precincts.

    Second, this writer has some gall to refer to white vote as "near-monolithic" against Landrieu. Her getting 18% of the white vote hardly qualifies for that description. If in some hypothetical election, the GOP candidate were to get 18% of the African-American vote, these same lefty MSM pundits would never call it "near-monolithic." They'd be too busy crying in their beer, because they know that in state wide elections, it would generally spell doom for their candidate.

    Former Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, a Fox News host, said the comments are “irrational.”

    “I can’t think of a presidential candidate who would have said those kinds of things,” he said. “Think about December 7, 1941 and then FDR going to the Congress of the United States the next day saying, ‘We need to have more empathy for Japan.’”

    We need to maintain a video of that speech for use in the 2016 presidential campaign against Her Royal Thighness. There are many more such inappropriate and/or off-the-wall remarks she has made down through the years where the same applies. Not too far behind Joe Biden in that category.

    Jennifer Rubin’s WaPo article somehow only covers HRC’s anti-Israel record during her tenure as Obama’s SOS. But let’s not forget her earlier inclinations in the same direction. There’s the infamous kiss of Mrs. Arafat, the personal (lesbian?) relationship with Huma Abedin (who has strong family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood/Sisterhood), and her activity going all the way back to her Arkansas days with a group of leftists supporting Palestinian causes. Just as with Obama, you can predict her future by observing who she has been friendly with from way back in her past.

    The applicant it cites is a first-generation Asian-American who ranked No. 1 in a high-school class of 460, attended a high school ranked in the top 5 percent of US high schools, had perfect 800 scores for his SAT II history and math, was an AP Scholar, National Scholar and the like and captained his varsity tennis team — in addition to other volunteer and extracurricular activities that included helping Chinese students learn English. But he was rejected.

    I really can't think of any reason that Harvard would reject this kid, unless he hinted on an essay or in an interview that he was a conservative politically. Then all bets would be off.

    Rush Limbaugh:

    In other words, it is power that defines the truth. The truth does not define itself. Facts do not define themselves. That power. And this immediately -- I don't know why, but that made a connection with me. All things are relative, and it is people with power who interpret events as they choose them to be -- in this case, reported. I think this is a great way to understand modern American media. The truth is what they say it is. They've got the power to define it. They have the power to implement it. They have the power to destroy the truth. They have the power to define it whatever they want it to be.

    And I think when you watch the media, and one of the great sources of frustrations I feel and I'm guessing a lot of you do, too, is that the truth seems to have no power whatsoever. The truth seems to have no impact whatsoever with an entire political party in this country and everybody who buys into that political party. And then we're left with, "Okay, well, what do we do when the truth doesn't matter?"

    Heard Rush today when he said that and he is right on target.

    But what he's talking about didn't start in the US as recently as 2002 or 2003. Truth lost out to power consistently in the Clinton years, epitomized by the Democrats and media covering up the rubout of Vincent Foster as a "suicide."

    Of course, things like that were going on in Arkansas during WJC's governorship there as one can infer by the introduction of the term "Arkancide."

    On a less deadly level, for at least 100 years, leftists in power have been perpetrating lies to sell their otherwise unpopular government programs to a skeptical public. One of the most infamous of these instances was the New Deal's characterization of Social Security as "old age insurance."

    I'm far from convinced at the present time that this was a suicide. Dumpsters are usually not the kind of places for it. On the contrary, they are common places for murderers to dump their victims who are already dead.

    This could well be a phony "suicide." It has, at least at this early juncture, some of the same strangeness as the death of Vince Foster.

    If it proves out to be a real suicide, since the victim was a football player, you can bet that it will be thought of by the MSM as a being caused by multiple concussions that went unrecognized by the football staff and athletic department. Don't be surprised if the MSM plays up the "concussion" line even as it obfuscates the true cause of death.

    If anyone ought to be fired, it's the incompetent bozo head coach at Iowa.

    Some things that go on with college football coaches are real strange. I don't know all the details, but Iowa lost in OT to Nebraska the other day. Yet it's the guy whose team won in a big comeback who gets fired two days later and the guy who lost who, it seems, has a safe job.

    Your guy Ferenz was considered about the best young head coach in the country not that long ago, so keep things in perspective. At least his teams are competitive and you're going to a bowl, which is lot more than you could say about Iowa for a long time back in the 60s and 70s.

    Who's next? Hoke?

    Probably. Hoke's Michigan winning percentage is significantly worse than Pellini's at Nebraska (about 61% vs. 72%), and what makes it worse for Michigan fans is that Michigan's decline (a putrid 5-7 this year and no bowl game) is coming at the same time arch-rivals OSU and MSU are dominant.

    But Hoke scores better than Pellini in intangibles: personality, media relations, high graduation rates of players, low off-the-field problems with players.

    From this Jewish perspective, that cartoon can be taken as more anti-Obama (for reaching out to the Iranian mullahs) than anti-Semitic. That’s probably the real reason why Abe Foxman and the ADL are so offended. (Sorry, can’t resist the temptation to take a dig at Foxman.)

    HHS “Started” Individual Obamacare Applications Prior To Deadline; Obtained Personal Info From States

    In the closing days of the open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) , the US Dept of Health and Human Services (HHS) was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that the govt agency had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf.

    The HHS letter stated that the information they used to begin the application for individual Healthcare was obtained by the state agency in charge of implementing Obamacare.

    This sounds even more ominous than what Gruber was doing in Wisconsin. It's kind of forcing people to sign up for some Obamacare plan they didn't voluntarily want in the first place.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the HHS didn't get the info from "the state agency in charge of implementing Obamacare," at least in some states, most likely those that refused to start Obamacare "exchanges." The personal info might instead have been obtained from the IRS or some other federal agency.

    As far as I know, there is a federal Privacy Act which prevents federal agencies from "sharing" personal information on individuals, with few definitive exceptions. What occurred here might have been a violation of the Privacy Act, if the "sharing" occurred as it may have. But if such were the case, it would be very consistent with the lawlessness that has become a hallmark of the Obama administration.

    These were not riots. These were planned, staged, predicted, counted on incidents of civil disobedience.

    Have to disagree with Rush on the semantics. By definition of "riot," what happened in Ferguson was a riot. There were the same kind of criminal activities going on - although to lesser extent in terms of quantity - as went on, for example, during the riots of the 1960s in predominantly black areas of cities like Los Angeles, Detroit, Newark, Washington, etc.: burning, looting, throwing bricks and bottles, overturning cars, vandalism, and the like. (Fortunately, no deaths were reported in Ferguson to the best of our knowledge, but then again it is a small town compared to the riot cities of the 1960s.)

    To use "civil disobedience" to describe Ferguson is unfortunate. "Civil disobedience" was a term used in the 1950s and 1960s civil rights movement to define peaceful, admittedly illegal actions under the Jim Crow laws of the place and time, such as sit-ins at segregated lunch counters and refusing to go to the back of segregated buses. The people who planned and engaged in the "civil disobedience" back then were not only non-violent, but principled and knew they would likely pay a price in the form of arrest and jail time. Obviously, this is not the case with Ferguson.

    Planned or not, Ferguson WAS a riot, and WAS NOT civil disobedience.

    Never heard of Don Paul, though I consider myself a quite knowledgeable sports historian. I did know, though, that the Rams were good in the early 1950s.

    Presume he's no relation to Ron Paul or Rand Paul.

    Now, without researching it (which is dangerous), I’m pretty confident in saying there were not many Jewish slave/plantation owners in the South. Whatever number there was was miniscule at best. I’d say most were of English/Irish/Scottish descent. I call BS on that theory.

    You are absolutely right. There were some Jews in the pre-Civil War South, but not very many, and most were in cities like Charleston, SC and New Orleans, and had urban-connected professions and occupations. Only a very few were large landowners.

    The estimated price for their services appear to be high but the training, education, and monetary layout to treat the cat price wise should be commensurate with the same amount other professions get for their services. Unfortunately, veterinarians are the lowest paid professionals on average within the medical community and yet have the most extensive and competitive education. If I had the money that I had donated in services and bad debts I could retire comfortably.

    I can understand where you are coming from, vetvetdoug, but when you compare veterinary doctors to human doctors, you have to admit you are better off in one way: you don't have to deal with Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, nor (for the most part) with insurance companies.
