    Commissioner Bill Bratton acknowledged that de Blasio has lost support of some police.

    "We're not anti-police, we're anti-police brutality," a member of the Justice League told the crowd, to cheers. "Every cop isn't bad…Every black man isn't a criminal."

    Typical leftist babble (banalities, platitudes). Do they realize that they support the mindless killing of people whose job is to enforce the law? My guess is that there are reams of paper listing the records of those who break the law.

    Supporting cop killers because cops were doing their job is anarchy. Facts do not matter. What kind of chaotic society do these people want, one where they are the judge and jury based on the "feelings" of those with an "axe to grind" or "turf to protect" instead of facts? We are no longer a nation guided by those with respect for the law.

    Hanna Rosin provides the likely answer: Erdely hoped her wildly implausible 9,000-word, agenda-driven excuse for journalism would emphasize “the larger theme of a university culture and social scene indifferent even to the most brutalized victims of rape.”

    It looks like the feminist premise that men and women are equal and interchangeable works only selectively, as evidenced by same sex marriage and equal pay for equal work.

    On the other hand just the accusation of untoward behavior to women results in a LaCross team being destroyed or harmed for life, fraternities being closed, and many women jumping on the bandwagon against someone with money who allegedly did something 40 years ago.

    When are the feminists going to admit that their premise is WRONG? That men and women are NOT equal? That men and women are NOT interchangeable?

    On one hand they want women on submarines and in combat; on the other hand they want women to have more protection and "daddy" government intervention.

    Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani “fundamentally misunderstands the reality,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said today on “This Week” in response to Giuliani’s recent comments focusing on violence within African-American communities, rather than questions over police interactions with minorities that have sparked nationwide protests.

  • Cultural shift on sexual assault: Why Bill Cosby allegations coming out now?

    The Bill Cosby allegations reflect an evolving American understanding of the crime of sexual assault, and increased empathy toward those claiming to be victims, say victim advocates.

    One one hand women want to be assigned to submarines, participate in hand to hand combat, be a firefighter, etc., demand equal pay for "equal" work, and are so macho that they demand to be totally interchangeable with men to the extent of same sex marriage.

    On the other hand they want men to be put so far back in jail that they have to pump in air so they can breathe, if women accuse them of rape, molestation, or "talking dirty."

    There is so much on macho women in the news, it makes me wonder why such old allegations are given so much press?

    I am getting tired of seeing women coming out of the woodwork to complain that something happened to them because they are powerless. (Do they smell the money?) And then go on and demand that they are to be treated equal to men. The word "selective" has to go in that sentence somewhere.

    “Like other holidays, including Christmas and Columbus Day, Thanksgiving is not based on historical accuracy, but rather on the importance and prevalence of maintaining a consumer culture”, Pewewardy, who is a member of both the Comanche and Kiowa tribes, said on Tuesday.

    Saying that Thanksgiving is based on the importance and prevalence of maintaining a consumer culture, is a big, unsupported assertion. It appears to be his heavily biased opinion.

    In 1621 colonists in New England gave communal thanks and praise to God for his abundant mercies and blessings. They were aware that they could not have survived their first year without the help of God. Help came through the Indians.

    This communal thanks became a tradition. In 1863 Thanksgiving Day was proclaimed a legal holiday. We ask that each person’s gratitude to God may bear fruit in loving service to neighbors.

    That is what Thanksgiving is about Pewewardy, thanks to our ancestors, yours and mine, and an inspiration to continue loving service to our neighbors.

    Polls had shown Warner, a popular former governor who'd been endorsed by his Republican predecessor, ex-Sen. John Warner, with a hefty lead. But Gillespie led Warner for much of the night as returns trickled in Tuesday -- and ultimately ended up trailing by less than one percentage point.

    Warner has already done a lot of damage to Virginia voters with his lock step support of Obama, but maybe the Republican majority in the Senate will neutralize Mark Warner.

    Mark certainly took advantage of the turncoat liberal ex-Sen. John Warner. I was glad to see him retire. Still surprised that so many Virginians would vote for Mark Warner, another corrupt disciple of President Obama and Harry Reid.

  • Has the Tea Party been tamed?

    Establishment Republicans are crowing that their resounding wins Tuesday night repudiated the Tea Party’s insistence that ideological purity is key to electoral success.

    These words are coming out of the mouths of the "Establishment" Republicans, not the "Tea Party" members. The resounding wins were largely attributable to the common sense views of Tea Party voters.

    Hopefully the misguided Establishment Republicans will repent and mend their ways, because there is no future for them without common sense views and votes that reflect the wishes of the electorate.

  • Will Elizabeth Warren Emerge from the Democrat Ashes of 2014?

    Elizabeth Warren is representative of the place the Dems are today. Hillary! is a dinosaur.

    I think that Elizabeth Warren is a perfect replacement for Hillary. She and Hillary share the same (Nancy Pelosi) competence in science, economic theory, and finance. They are both adept at blaming others whether it be banking or the pharmaceutical industry, or free enterprise. They each know how to use their feminine credentials and ancestry to move forward, or to crush their enemies.

    We welcome Elizabeth Warren to join us in the pool; the water is warm.

  • MSNBC's Welker to GOP: Pass Immigration Bill So Obama Doesn't 'Have' To Issue Exec Order

    On MSNBC's Daily Rundown today, Kristen Welker repeatedly blocked GOP Senator Ron Johnson's attempts to talk about President Obama's threat to issue an executive order granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.

    When do you suppose MSNBC will start to hire people who can conduct a rational, intelligent interview? ...instead of childish, predictable (and boring) blather?

    Do people block others from speaking because they are intellectually bankrupt?

  • Voters put climate change policy in the hands of climate change denier

    People who voted for the GOP in the congressional elections this week may be surprised to learn they chose a militant climate change denier to oversee federal efforts to deal with climate change.

    Many people who voted for the GOP in the congressional elections this week may be pleased to learn they chose a leader who understands and appreciates sound science, to oversee federal efforts to deal with climate change.

    There is no such thing as a "climate change denier," because the climate has been changing continuously since the beginning of time.

    We are looking forward to sound science in terms of clearly stated, in plain English, the data, methodology, and assumptions associated with any study relating to climate change. What we have today is a cacophony of unsupported assertions, papers, and claims that man kind itself is causing global warming. Is there global warming? It is natural or man made? Is there global cooling? Just because EPA says carbon dioxide is going to kill us all, are they correct?

    What we need is a systems analysis of global climate change, not thousands of papers blaming you.

  • Boehner: Time For Gop-led Congress To Deal With Immigration

    Referring to immigration, Boehner also said that "it is time for the Congress of the United States to deal with a very difficult issue in our society." He noted that immigration has become a "political football" over the last ten years and said it is his personal belief that "it's just time to deal with this."

    Yes, it is time to deal with this. Close/secure the borders and then take the time necessary to deal with the illegal immigrants already here, in a way that is fair to those who waited in line and followed the rules.

    Congress has ZERO credibility in passing amnesty with the PROMISE of closing the border. Somehow that part does not happen. If a law is passed, it is somehow defunded. CLOSE the borders and take the time necessary AFTER the borders are secure to deal with those here.

    Return convicted criminals to their country of origin, especially the rapists and murderers. Getting them out of our jails will reduce our costs by 50% or more.

  • The First Polar Vortex Of The Season Is Coming Next Week

    The polar vortex is a large pocket of very cold air, typically the coldest air in the Northern Hemisphere, which sits over the polar region.

    Since when has a cold snap been called a "polar vortex?"

    Is this new terminology invented to scare people, or is it uncommon terminology brought out recently to better explain cold snaps?

    Old man McConnell must be napping.

    Is there any chance that McConnell could be replaced by some other Republican? He is ineffective as a Senate leader; many do not look forward to working with him.

    Get some other Republican like Cruz or Lee or ...?

  • "The Tea Party has completely...ruined the Republican Party": Jon Huntsman Sr.

    "The Tea Party has completely captivated and ruined the Republican Party today and they'll show this in 2016," says Hunstman, author of Barefoot to Billionaire. "Unless a Jeb Bush comes in or John Huntsman Jr., the Republicans don't have a prayer."

    Huntsman is out of touch with the voters. The Tea Party stands for religious freedom, science, fiscal responsibility, borders, language, and culture. Which of these does Huntsman not understand?

    Men and women are not interchangeable; life begins at conception; the "science" of man-caused global warming is seriously flawed, and more...
