    He was wounded in a foxhole in the Philippines in 1944. "There were four guys in there, and two guys got killed," he told the station. "And then the other guy, he got his leg... Oh, hell. I guess he lost his leg. It was slit in four places where a grenade hit between us and I got one in my leg." Limpert said he waited until now to apply for benefits because he is down to nothing. ****** His application included plenty of documentation, including discharge papers, the names of his foxhole pals and the X-ray of his wounded...
  • Are Electric Cars Really Green? (Video)

    Prager University ^ | 2-8-2016 | Bjorn Lomborg Do electric cars really help the environment? President Obama thinks so. So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don't burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating "zero emissions." But do they really? Let's take a closer look. First, there's the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an...

    The left's greatest intellectual error is its conviction that the world can be divided into a binary power struggle in which both sides agree on the nature of the struggle, but disagree on the outcome. For leftists of a certain generation, it was class. Marx began the Communist Manifesto by laying out a primal class struggle throughout human history. For Marxists, everything in the world could be broken down to a class struggle with the wealthy oppressors on one side and the oppressed on the other. It didn't matter that this model didn't fit a reality in which Communists leaders...

    On January 22, the era of social justice ascendancy on the web came to a battered, exhausted halt. Gregory Alan Elliott, a Toronto artist who was dragged through the Canadian criminal justice system for the “crime” of disagreeing with feminists on Twitter, was declared innocent. His acquittal marked the climax of nearly two years of setbacks for social justice warriors on the web, whose ability to quash dissent and ruin their opponents once seemed unchallengeable. Twitter, once dominated by the activists of the regressive left, rang out in celebration at the victory for free speech. Elliott’s trial stretched from the...

    Critics are blasting a Massachusetts city's new law that they claim requires residents applying for a license to carry handguns to write "an essay" and pay upwards of $1,100 for training. The new laws take effect this week in Lowell, a city of 110,000 that lies 35 miles north of Boston. Pushed by Police Superintendent William Taylor and passed by the City Council, they require applicants for unrestricted handgun licenses to state in writing why they should receive such a license. Taylor, who was unavailable for comment on Monday, has sole discretion for approving or denying the applications. "It is...

    The USS Fort Worth, a Navy littoral combat ship, has suffered extensive gear damage while docked at a port in Singapore. The Navy is blaming the incident on a crew error. According to reports, the crew failed to use sufficient lube oil, leading to excessively high temperatures on the gears. Debris also found its way into the lubrication system, which also contributed to failure, Defense News reports. The crew did not follow standard operating procedures. Immediately following the incident, ship repair experts arrived on the scene to assess the damage. Until the investigation wraps up, the ship will remain at...

    According to Islamic clerics, a woman who fails to wear a headscarf is asking to be raped. Consequently, in the eyes of Muslim men, Western women are seen as "promiscuous, loose, and willing," and since no one in the Islamic community refutes this, they engage in the violence and abuse of power that rape represents. In Australia, Lebanese gangs threaten policemen's wives and girlfriends with rape. ****** According to Abigail R. Esman, since 2006 the Dutch have described how second-generation Moroccan youths grope Dutch women and call them sluts. Jamie Glazov describes the horrible scar that myriad women now bear....

    The Washington state legislature has convened for a 60 day session, and the anti gunners are wasting no time introducing bills that supposedly address “gun violence”, in which they sort of admit that their “universal background check” ballot initiative has failed to prevent such “gun violence.” Rep. Jim Moeller’s HB 2354 would ban so-called “assault weapons”, in which nearly every modern firearm is defined as an “assault weapon”. Parts of Section 1 of the bill read:(27) “Assault weapon” means: (a) A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has one or more of the following:...

So, here's my question: Did this rougher and meaner world better prepare me to be a well-adjusted, happy adult? I say yes.

    Full title: Obama's Executive Gun Control: No Minimum Threshold Before Private Gun Sales Require Background Checks On January 4, the White House released a fact sheet which previews the executive gun control Obama will announce Tuesday, and it reveals there is no numerical threshold of sales that a private seller has to cross before being considered "engaged in the business of dealing in firearms."In other words, previous hints that there would be a "trigger"--a certain number of guns that a private seller had to sell before being considered "engaged in the business"--are now out the window. Figures like those reported...

    Former Vice President Al Gore made a prediction for the earth's point of no return 10 years ago and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh held him to it since that day in 2006. The countdown clock on Limbaugh's site has been running for nearly 10 years since Gore's apocalyptic prediction about the earth as a result of greenhouse emissions. Less than a month remains in the countdown. Gore predicted, when his film "An Inconvenient Truth" was first released at the Sundance Film Festival, that the earth would be in "a true planetary emergency" within the next ten years unless drastic...

    In 2014, just 14 percent of children under the age of 18 were living with parents in their first marriage with a father who worked and a stay-at-home mother. In the 1960s 50 percent of children lived in that family environment, declining to 26 percent in 1980 and continuing to decline until the 1990s when Pew reports the level began to remain more steady.

And when the debate went to a long commercial break Clinton lost out to Lis Smith, the caffeine-guzzling deputy campaign manager for former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, who beat her to the restroom. Smith declined to comment for the story.

    Author's Note: Universities are supposed to prepare people to be productive citizens. They are failing miserably because they are failing to reward hard work and initiative. In fact, it is worse than that. They have actually started rewarding dependency in our government schools.

This latest message, which I have written to my students and will send to them early next month when classes begin, is illustrative. If you are tired of our public schools and universities producing helpless, dependent children...

    The Islamic State has reportedly issued a fatwa ordering the elimination of children with Down syndrome and other congenital disabilities, reminiscent of Hitler’s infamous “Aktion T4” program, which administered forced “euthanasia” on an estimated 300,000 disabled persons. According to the Iraqi activist blog Mosul Eye, sharia judges have ruled that ISIS followers are authorized to kill infants with Down Syndrome or congenital deformities. Already since the religious decree (fatwa) was issued, militants have killed at least 38 children between one week and three months old by lethal injection or suffocation.

  • 'Spinning up as we speak': Email shows Pentagon was ready to roll as Benghazi attack occurred

    As the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was unfolding, a high-ranking Pentagon official urgently messaged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top deputies to offer military help, according to an email obtained by Judicial Watch. The revelation appears to contradict testimony Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave lawmakers in 2013, when he said there was no time to get forces to the scene in Libya, where four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. “I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton],” reads...

  • CALLING OUT ISLAM TERRORISM TRUTHERS (Blame everything but Islam.)

    Each and every act of Muslim terrorism is followed by a wave of denial. The politicians who have done the most to cause the latest disaster are the eagerest to blame it on something, anything else. The San Bernardino Muslim massacre was blamed on postpartum depression at CNN. Bill Nye blamed the latest Paris attacks on Global Warming. According to Hillary Clinton, Benghazi was a movie review with artillery. Islamic terrorism was blamed by the State Department on a lack of jobs, but Syed Farook had a good government job and his wife was the daughter of a wealthy family....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Denville, New Jersey. It's Alan. Great to have you, sir. Hi. CALLER: Hi. Good afternoon, Rush. How are you? RUSH: Good. Good. CALLER: Okay. So just quick to the point. You mentioned before when you were discussing how President Obama had started using the term "ISIL" and staying away from "ISIS" and I think the reason behind that, and I also will back it up from what I recall hearing him say last night in a speech, was that ISIS, of course, Islamic State in Syria. Now, Syria is something that happened way after President Bush left...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday called for a moratorium on allowing Muslims to enter the United States. Here's the press release from his campaign: (New York, NY) December 7th, 2015, - Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing "25% of those polled agreed that violence...

    Within a year, maybe in just a few months, a young soldier with a horrific injury from a bomb blast in Afghanistan will have an operation that has never been performed in the United States: a p-nis transplant. The organ will come from a deceased donor, and the surgeons, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, say they expect it to start working in a matter of months, developing urinary function, sensation and, eventually, the ability to have sex. From 2001 to 2013, 1,367 men in military service suffered wounds to the genitals in Iraq or Afghanistan, according...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Now, in further analyzing the president's speech last night, I want to remind you of a very important point that I made last week last week. Barack Obama is the United States government at the moment. The official position of the United States government is that Islam is a religion of peace and is as anti-terrorism as you and I are, and therefore cannot inspire people like the San Bernardino Two. It is not Islam. There's no such thing as radical Islam! It is ISIS and Al-Qaeda and all the others who are using Islam, but they...
  • Milano cookie battle: Pepperidge Farm sues Trader Joe’s over copyright infringement

    Pepperidge Farm is suing Trader Joe's for infringing on the trademark of its popular Milano cookie. According to a complaint filed on Wednesday in New Haven, Connecticut federal court, the grocery chain's version of a sandwich cookie, called Trader Joe's Crispy Cookies, look too similar to the Milano cookie and the products' sale is "damaging its goodwill and confusing shoppers," reports Reuters. Milano cookies, which were first introduced to the market in 1956, are crispy oval-shaped vanilla cookies with a chocolate crème filling. Over the years, variations have been introduced, including mint chocolate, orange chocolate and even pumpkin spice. The...
