  • Vote Fraud Oughta Be a Crime (Yessssssssssssss)

    Joseph Stalin is credited with observing that, "It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes." Over the last two decades the Left has been changing both the rules of our election process and Americaís demographics to suit their political agenda. A perfect example is Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffeís brazen attempt to get more than 200,000 convicted felons onto the stateís voter rolls in time for the last election. Undaunted after his slapdown by the state supreme court, the governor recently vetoed six common-sense election integrity bills sent to his desk. One of the...
  • The Shameful Suspension of Chief Justice Roy Moore

    A good man has been suspended. Again. Ultimately he¬ís a victim of judicial activism---of judges making things up from the bench and saying it¬ís what our Constitution requires. The so-called ¬ďTen Commandments judge,¬Ē Roy Moore won election as the chief justice of Alabama for the second time in 2012. Here¬ís a timeline of his suspension: November 7, 2006. 81 percent of Alabama voters vote on a state constitutional amendment that marriage in that state is one man, one woman. January 11, 2013. Roy S. Moore is sworn in again as Chief Justice. February 3, 2015. Chief Justice Moore wrote a...
  • Berkeley Silences Free Speech With a Kick in the Teeth

    There is a clear and present danger to conservative students at the University of California Berkeley. The birthplace of the so-called free speech movement is now the epicenter of a nefarious movement to silence freedom-loving young people. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter had been scheduled to speak today, but she canceled. Leftwing groups had threatened to silence Ms. Coulter by any means necessary. But the university refused to guarantee the safety of Ms. Coulter or the students who invited her to speak Ė the Young Americaís Foundation. I know these students. I know this organization. They are good people Ė patriots...
  • Is It Time to Repeal FATCA?

    04/27/2017 8:16:16 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | April 27, 2017 | Veronique de Rugy
    I've previously argued that the Trump administration should stop funding the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development because of its advocacy of higher taxes and tax harmonization. At the time, I was told that my position could be perceived as hypocritical because our government is responsible for the adoption and enforcement of the hideous Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. Let me address this omission. FATCA, which was passed in 2010 by a Democratic Congress and enacted by President Barack Obama, requires law-abiding Americans with legitimate bank accounts outside the country and foreigners working in the United States to turn over...
  • A Meaningful Life

    This month has included the passing of my friend Julie who, at 41 years of age, was almost a decade younger than I. Julie had been diagnosed with cancer 38 days before she died. Her funeral, while filled with shock and sorrow, was also filled with joy and peace. A committed Christian, she brightened the lives of those she touched and left a legacy that resonated among the mourners: go and brighten others' lives as she brightened yours. The fact that she had found solace, purpose and strength in God, faith in Christ and belief in an afterlife made her...
  • Lessons In Democracy

    Like most Americans, I groaned when the mail included a summons to jury duty. Having been there before, I envisioned three days of wasted time in a bland room with lousy internet service. Instead, I served on a jury and came away with a renewed confidence in America's tradition of self-governance. My service as Juror Number 2 took place in Freehold, New Jersey near a Battle of Monmouth monument. At first, I inwardly chuckled when the judge cited the history of the place to convince us of the importance of the jury system. Being a history buff, I knew the...
  • The FBI and Hillary, Again

    04/27/2017 7:07:22 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 29 replies ^ | April 27, 2017 | Judge Andrew Napolitano
    Last weekend, The New York Times published a long piece about the effect the FBI had on the outcome of the 2016 presidential campaign. As we all know, Donald Trump won a comfortable victory in the Electoral College while falling about 3 million votes behind Hillary Clinton in the popular vote. I believe that Clinton was a deeply flawed candidate who failed to energize the Democratic Party base and who failed to deliver to the electorate a principled reason to vote for her. Yet when the Times reporters asked her why she believes she lost the race, she gave several...
  • Trump's Biggest Achievement in His 1st 100 Days? Stopping the Left

    04/27/2017 6:20:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | April 27, 2017 | Larry Elder
    President Donald Trump's biggest achievement in his first 100 days? Easy. He stopped the left. Measure Trump's first 100 days not just by looking at what he has or has not accomplished. Look at what America would have experienced under the alternative: Hillary Clinton. Under Clinton, the debate would not be on how to replace Obamacare, but how quickly can the left realize its ultimate ambition, a Canadian-style, single-payer system. Under Clinton, the issue would not be how steep the tax cuts, but how many "rich" people, also known as job creators, would experience yet another growth-restricting tax hike....

    Wealthy investor Doug Derwin is spending a lot of his own money in an attempt to convince billionaire Elon Musk to step down from President Donald Trumpís business advisory council. Why? He doesnít like Trump and doesnít think business leaders should embrace the president because, well, he opposes him politically. Whatever the reason, it doesnít matter; heís opened the bank vault and is spending liberally to pressure Musk, who may or may not eventually capitulate.†Whatever eventually comes of the pressure, President Trump should not wait to see if Musk will cave and remove him now. Nothing against Elon Musk, heís...
  • Will 2020 be Another 1972 for Democrats?

    Forty-nine years ago, Vice President Hubert Humphrey was the Democratic candidate for president. The year 1968 was a tumultuous one that saw the assassinations of rival candidate Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. Lyndon Johnson's unpopular lame-duck Democratic administration imploded due to massive protests against the Vietnam War. Yet Humphrey almost defeated Republican nominee Richard Nixon, losing the election by just over 500,000 votes (43.4 percent to 42.7 percent). Infighting Democrats could have defeated the unpopular Nixon if not for a few unforeseen developments. Their convention in Chicago turned into a creepy carnival of...
  • The View Excitedly Asks Caitlyn Jenner To Run As First 'Woman President' (Bwahahaha)

    Former Olympian and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner was on The View Wednesday to talk about their new book and how they felt about Donald Trump. While criticizing Trump‚Äôs record on transgender issues, Jenner said they still identified as a conservative for issues like national security. Jenner‚Äôs answer prompted one host to excitedly ask Jenner to run for political office. The interview began with host Whoopi Goldberg asking about Jenner‚Äôs relationship with Trump: WHOOPI: What can you say to him that says, ‚ÄėListen. You need to remember. We're all Americans here.‚Äô How can you help us? Jenner responded that Trump‚Äôs ruling...

    RUSH: The amount of money coming into Washington is not a factor when the Democrats start spending it. Witness Obama. National debt doubled in eight years. It didnít matter what the tax revenue was. Didnít matter. He was gonna spend the money anyway. The Democrats are about punishing achievement and punishing success and saying itís unjustified, itís unfair, and it may involve cheating and scandal. They stigmatize success because their voters are people who cannot achieve those things. The Democrats have made sure they donít even want to try. BREAK TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Folks, it works the other way too. If...

And this is now the third or fourth Trump executive order which has been stayed by Obama ‚ÄĒ well, one was a Bush 43 appointed judge.

    Itís human nature: when Person A finally takes the action or adopts the position favored by Person B, the inclination is for Person B to continue to be dissatisfied with Person A and not give them any credit for their move. Person B will very often change the basis on which the original issue was based in an attempt to preserve a legitimate reason to reject Person Aís action. To Person B, being able to reject Person A and disagree with him is more important than the actual issue itself. Such is definitely the case with Democratic politicians, activists and...

    When Donald Trump stood in the lobby of Trump Tower on June 16, 2015 and announced he was running for president, he told all who listened to "mark" his words. "I would do various things very quickly," Trump said. "I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare," he said. "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border," he said. "And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. "Mark my words," he said. Fifteen months later -- after he won the Republican nomination and less than two months before his general election showdown -- Trump released...

    JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- Mark Critz was on top of the world. Seven years ago this May, Critz, the longtime district director for the powerful Western Pennsylvania Democratic congressman Jack Murtha, won his late boss's seat in a hard-fought special election. He held the seat for Democrats, handing then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a symbolic victory that she could point to as proof that Democrats were well on their way to expanding their majority that November. Seven months later, Democrats lost 63 seats in the House -- their worst electoral defeat in decades -- as disaffected centrist Democrats, conservative-leaning independents and Republicans...

    In D.C. Comicís fictional ďBizarro World,Ē all things are done opposite of here on Earth. According to the ďBizarro Code,Ē inhabitants of the cube-shaped planet ďhate beauty,Ē ďlove uglinessĒ and consider it illegal to ďmake anything perfect.Ē Ironically, here on planet Earth, many liberals Ė and a disturbing number of judges Ė subscribe to a similar Bizarro Code when considering matters involving the Second Amendment. To these Earth-bound Bizarro Code adherents, it should be -- and in some cases is -- illegal to legally exercise the fundamental, constitutionally-guaranteed right to possess a firearm. While the Supreme Court, and a number...
  • Lessons Unlearned From the '92 LA Riots

    This weekend marks 100 days of the Trump administration. This milestone also coincides with a very important anniversary. Twenty-five years ago, April 29, 1992, riots exploded in Los Angeles after four policemen were acquitted after being charged with the violent beating of Rodney King, caught on video for the entire nation to see. According to The Los Angeles Times, 63 lives were lost in the riots, with the estimated total economic cost pegged at $1 billion, with $735 million in property damage and 1,550 buildings destroyed or damaged. But this is more than a fact of national history for me....
  • Immigration the Common Thread Between French, American Elections

    In case you've been confused by the last few days of punditry, let me say outright that France is not America. For example, we recently concluded a presidential election in the United States in which many argued that it was imperative to smash the "final glass ceiling" by electing a female president. One doesn't hear that kind of talk in France about Marine Le Pen, who just came in second in the first round of presidential elections. If she wins the runoff against Emmanuel Macron on May 7, she would be France's first female president. Why is there no "ready...
  • Trump's 100 Days of Media Hostility

    The time has come for the media to pull out the artificial measuring stick of 100 days to evaluate President Trump. If they're kind, he'll get an I for "incomplete." But it's more likely they'll use other I words like "inability," "incompetence" or "incoherence." Whatever they say, it won't be kind. But eight years ago? Time magazine's Joe Klein graded President Obama with an S for "spectacular" and "stupendous," saying, "The legislative achievements have been stupendous -- the $789 billion stimulus bill, the budget plan that is still being hammered out (and may, ultimately, include the next landmark safety-net...
