  • If You Want To Stop Liberal Bullying, Start By Telling Them To Buzz Off

    04/25/2018 9:17:41 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | April 26, 2018 | Kurt Schlichter
    Well, not buzz. But you get the point. We are experiencing an epidemic of liberals trying to push us around. And, since life is really just high school, except with older and stupider people, schoolyard rules apply. So when someone tries to bully, you smack him. Hard. Right in the Pelosi. That's what we need to do the liberals when they form their creepy little social media lynch mobs. This nonsense about cowering and apologizing and begging for forgiveness from these petty tyrants needs to stop. Besides being undignified and shameful, submission just encourages them. Take whoever Shania Twain...

    RUSH: So Im just watching CNN. The Drive-By Media is going bonkers today over the nomination of Ronny Jackson to head up the VA. Now, for those of you who dont know, Ronny Jacksons a White House physician, and hes the guy that gave Donald Trump his last physical and raved and raved and raved about Donald Trumps health. And the Drive-Bys and the Democrats immediately began to attack his fairness and integrity, veritably accusing him of lying about Trumps health, accusing him of making it up, accusing him of being partisan. ow his nomination to be head of the...

    RUSH: There was a special election in Arizona yesterday, and the Democrats, they had already put it in the hopper as a win. They were gonna win and it was just the beginning, the next phase of this gigantic blue wave thats gonna happen in November. Except it didnt happen. The vote count as of this morning wasnt final, but Republican Debbie Lesko is ahead of the Democrat Hiral Tipirneni by a five-point margin. It wasnt supposed to happen. So here we have a CNN story, heres the headline: Why the Win for Republicans in Arizona 8 is Still Good...

    RUSH: This entire resistance movement, what does it all mean, what does it really mean in terms of our countrys future? What does it mean that the Democrat Party you and I grew up with doesnt exist anymore? What does it mean that the Democrat Party has been taken over by the radical left, which is literally resisting everything, and they are refusing to acknowledge and tolerate and deal with the fact that they lose elections now and then. Were getting to the point that they will not accept losing. They will not tolerate others winning and are not going...
  • Macron Speech to Congress Goes Off the Rails

    RUSH: Yeah, the little guy was just cruising right along. It was as good a speech as Nicholas Sarkozy gave. I dont think people remember this, but Sarkozy, when he was the president of France, came to Washington, had a big state dinner and had a joint speech, had a speech before joint session of Congress. And he dazzled and he wowed everybody. And the guy came off as much more of a patriotic conservative American than any Democrat in the House of Representatives. And today, the new French president, Macron, was off on the same riff and he was...

    American Thinker ^ | April 25, 2018 | Brian C. Joondeph
    As America approaches her 250th birthday, her instruction manual, the U.S. Constitution, is under assault as never before. The First Amendment is under attack by campus speech police and social media, censoring and deciding which political statements are welcomed and which are verboten. The Second Amendment is threatened by leftist elitists happy to ban guns for the law-abiding as long as they can have armed guards protecting themselves and their families from the criminals who don't give a whit about whatever gun laws the left proposes. It's not only the Bill of Rights under assault, but also Article Two of...
  • Is 'Can't Prove Untrue' The New Standard In Trump Probe?

    04/25/2018 7:03:15 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | April 15, 2018 | Byron York
    When a political figure is accused of wrongdoing, a conversation begins among journalists, commentators and public officials. Are the charges true? Can the accusers prove it? That's the way it normally works. But now, in the case of the Trump dossier -- the allegations compiled by a former British spy hired by the Clinton campaign to gather dirt on presidential candidate Donald Trump -- the generally accepted standard of justice has been turned on its head. Now, the question is: Can the accused prove the charges false? Increasingly, the president's critics argue that the dossier is legitimate because it has...
  • Educational Fraud Continues

    Earlier this month, the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress, aka The Nation's Report Card, was released. It's not a pretty story. Only 37 percent of 12th-graders tested proficient or better in reading, and only 25 percent did so in math. Among black students, only 17 percent tested proficient or better in reading, and just 7 percent reached at least a proficient level in math. The atrocious NAEP performance is only a fraction of the bad news. Nationally, our high school graduation rate is over 80 percent. That means high school diplomas, which attest that these students can read and...
  • Teachers With Guns

    What should be done about school shootings? After the horrible shooting in Parkland, Florida, President Trump suggested that some teachers carry guns. "We need to let people know, you come in to our schools -- you're gonna be dead." Anti-gun activists were horrified. But they probably didn't know that many teachers have brought guns to work with them for years. Some teachers at the Keene Independent School District in Texas carry concealed weapons at school. "We know our staff and our teachers are gonna go" defend students, Texas' Keene Independent School District superintendent Ricky Stephens told me for this week's...

    When British hospital officials tried to pull the plug on 23-month-old toddler Alfie Evans on Monday night in arrogant defiance of his parents' wishes, many Americans took to Twitter to count their blessings that they live in a country that would not allow such tyranny. "Stories like Alfie Evans make me realize how grateful I am to live in America where freedom still exists," one young social media user wrote. "Folks, is this what we want for America? Parents rendered helpless before the gods of socialized medicine?" retired Army Lt. Col. Allen West asked. Alfie's plight comes less than a...
  • Schools Are Teaching Kids to Use Their Body, Not Their Mind, To Affect Politics

    04/25/2018 5:21:32 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | April 25, 2018 | Marina Medvin
    Teachers and school administrators have been supporting and encouraging student walkouts in protest of “gun violence.” I: “What are you protesting?”Kid: “Gun violence.”I: “Ok. No one disagrees with you. ‘Gun violence,’ an ambiguous term by which you mean gun crimes, is already prohibited by every state of these United States as either murder or brandishing or other type of criminal assault. Go back to class.” What they are actually attempting to protest is the ability of anyone to possess a gun. Former Supreme Court Justice Stevens laid out a logical explanation for what the politics behind these school walkouts are...
  • Who Controls Your Kids' Lives?

    Former Republican Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas was fond of telling a story about his time stumping for educational change. "My educational policies are based on the fact that I care more about my children than you do," Gramm once said to a woman. "No, you don't," she replied. "OK," said Gramm. "What are their names?" Gramm's fundamental premise is inalterably correct: Parents care more about their children than do the members of the bureaucracy. But parents are being gradually curbed in their authority by precisely those bureaucrats across the West. On Tuesday, a British court condemned a not-yet-2-year-old child...
  • Our PC Culture Just Got Even More Ridiculous

    Every now and then a news item pops up that is so ridiculous that you figure it's just got to be fake news, somebody's idea of a joke. You check the calendar to make sure it's not April Fools' Day. And when you realize it isn't, you come to understand that in our hypersensitive culture, a news story can be factual, accurate and preposterous all at the same time. Which brings us to the TV play-by-play man for the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team in the National Basketball Association. The announcer, Brian Davis, was calling a game in which the...

    Abortionist Willie Parker has a difficult time deciding what gives human beings value. He claims that his judgments are grounded in facts. But he justifies performing second trimester abortions by citing the medical truth that Before twenty two weeks, a fetus is not in any way equal to a baby or a child. It cannot survive outside the uterus because it cannot breathe not even on a respirator. It cannot form anything like thoughts. That statement may be grounded in medical truth. But it is also grounded in bad philosophy. For most people, the first impulse upon reading such...

    In my last column -- "The New York Times Best-Seller List: Another Reason Americans Don't Trust the Media" -- I used my recently published book as evidence that The New York Times best-seller list is not a best-seller list. I pointed out that the book, "The Rational Bible: Exodus," the first volume of my commentary on the first five books of the Bible (the Torah), did not appear on The New York Times best-seller list even though it was: --No. 2 on the Wall Street Journal nonfiction best-seller list. --No. 2 on the Publishers Weekly nonfiction best-seller list. --No. 2...
  • The Right To Bear Arms Is The Right to Gender Equality

    04/24/2018 6:10:37 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | April 24, 2018 | Marina Medvin
    In boxing, a fighter’s weight is measured and reported to the audience. Size matters in a fight. I’m a 5’3” female and I weigh in at a whopping 104 lbs. (Tiny person, mighty spirit.) But presumably I wouldn’t do well fending off a physical attack. So when liberals started talking about female empowerment and fighting rapists, I got excited. Turns out, we had some disconnect on what empowerment really means. My internal conversation with liberals went something like this: Libs: “We need to empower women. We need to fight against rape and bad men. Gender equality!”Me: “Alright! Let’s teach women self defense,...
  • 'The Nation' Angered that 'Racist' Trump to Pardon Late African-American Boxing Champ

    The Nation's sports editor Dave Zirin is livid that the man who occupies the White House, courtesy of the slave-holders who devised the electoral college, is getting the credit for pardoning Jack Johnson. The African-American Johnson was an early 20th century boxing champion who also served prison time for a criminal charge. Johnson (shown in photograph) was the first African-American world heavyweight boxing champion, from 1908-1915, the era of Jim Crow. He had dated and married white women, and in 1912, he was arrested for violating the Mann Act forbidding a person from transporting a woman across state lines for...
  • Politico Reporter: With DNC Lawsuit, Democrats Worry Their Party

    04/23/2018 7:37:27 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies ^ | April 23, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee has decided to be clown itself further by suing Wikileaks, Russia, and the Trump campaign for collusion during the 2016 election. For a party that’s tired of the media talking about Hillary and 2016, this is a way to keep both issues front and center. It’s going to re-open the wounds between the left and far left of the Democratic Party, erecting another obstacle for unity as the party heads into the 2016 election. Is the DNC's Trump-Russia conspiracy lawsuit a "political stunt?"Now, if you’re a Democrat, it keeps Russia in the news, as the...

At any rate, theyre having dinner tonight at Mount Vernon. Trump is hosting Macaroni at Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington. Folks, if you havent been to Mount Vernon, they have rebuilt...

    RUSH: I think it was lets see this is April, March. It was about 14 and a half, maybe 15 months ago, and I was appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. And he asked me a question about something, and my answer was, Before I get into that, Chris, I just want to tell you, this whole idea that the Russians had anything to do with the outcome of the presidential election is absurd. The idea that they colluded or tampered or worked with Donald Trump to do it is doubly absurd. There is nothing to...
