  • The Media will use Charlottesville to justify BLM and the antifa Fascists (truncated)

    The Democratic Party and its media fifth column are using Charlottesville to legitimize Black Lives Matters and the "AntiFa," and suppress any criticism of these dangerous revolutionaries. If they succeed – and they well could – criticism of these monsters will be denounced as support for fascism.        I said it before, but it bears repeating, the White Nationalists/Supremacists/Neo-Nazis are evil – just as ugly, crazy and violent as the BLM/AntiFa.        But here's the difference: There is no White Supremacist threat to America. Their numbers are insignificant. They have no popular support and no resources. At what was called...

           Claude Rains' character in the iconic film "Casablanca" has just been told by Maj. Strasser to find a reason to close Humphrey Bogart's nightclub. Rains to Bogart: "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on here!" The croupier hands him money. "Your winnings, sir." "Oh, thank you very much."        This election has been filled with stunning revelations and Ripley's-Believe-It-or-Not moments:        I'm shocked, shocked to find that the liberal media are an adjunct of the Clinton campaign.        According to a Gallup Poll released in mid-September, public confidence in the media has fallen to an all-time...

             Toward the end of his presidency, Calvin Coolidge said of his presumptive successor, Herbert Hoover (who he regularly derided as “Wonder Boy”), “That man has offered me unsolicited advice every day for six years, all of it bad.”          In the aftermath of the 2012 election, the conservative movement is swamped with unsolicited advice, much of it ranging from the bad to the bizarre, to the atrocious.          It comes from consultants whose reputation is built on running losing campaigns, domesticated conservative commentators for the mainstream media, pragmatists who are willing to jettison the principals they’ve never really believed...

      Some on the right are now recommending Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” as a handbook for us. The recommendation usually begins with, “I know Alinsky was thoroughly evil… but there’s a lot we can learn from him.”          Obama is reelected with 9 million fewer votes than in 2008, against a pathetically weak opponent (whose most memorable line from the debates was “I agree with the president on that”), and suddenly the Marxist Machiavelli is the political equivalent of Sun Tzu. Here’s a guide for conservative victories based on conservative values:1.   Understand that the left intends to destroy you....
  • Fact-Checking Snopes: Website's Political 'Fact-Checker' is just a failed Liberal Blogger

    The Daily Caller ^ | June 17, 2016 | Peter Hasson
    Popular myth-busting website Snopes originally gained recognition for being the go-to site for disproving outlandish urban legends -such as the presence of UFOs in Haiti or the existence of human-animal hybrids in the Amazon jungle. Recently, however, the site has tried to pose as a political fact-checker. But Snopes’ “fact-checking” looks more like playing defense for prominent Democrats like Hillary Clinton and it’s political “fact-checker” describes herself as a liberal and has called Republicans “regressive” and afraid of “female agency.” Snopes’ main political fact-checker is a writer named Kim Lacapria. Before writing for Snopes, Lacapria wrote for Inquisitr, a blog...

    A century before American soldiers fought Muslim terrorism in the Middle East, they fought it in the Philippines. Their attackers were Moro Muslims whose savage fanaticism appeared inexplicable. A formerly friendly Muslim might suddenly attack American soldiers, local Muslim rulers promised friendship while secretly aiding the terrorists and the yellow left-wing press at home seized on every report of an atrocity to denounce American soldiers as murderers whose honor was forever soiled. Much of what went on in that conflict, including the sacrifices of our soldiers, has been forgotten. The erasure has been so thorough that the media casually claims...

    Conservative H! ^ | Feburary 18, 2016 | George Rasley
    A lot has been written about how Donald Trump’s asset churning and bombastic attacks on partners and takeover targets in Atlantic City may have profited him personally, but ultimately led to the demise of his Atlantic City casino empire, costing small investors, contractors and suppliers millions of dollars and throwing thousands of employees out of work. But as our friend, and former Justice Department lawyer J. Christian Adams has documented, Atlantic City isn’t Trump’s only failed enterprise, nor is it the only example of how Donald Trump has made money by duping Donald Trumpand bullying the little guys he now...

    Jonathan Greenblatt, a White House aide, has been selected to replace Abe Foxman as national director of the ADL. The Anti-Defamation League has announced that Jonathan Greenblatt, a special assistant to President Obama, will succeed Abraham Foxman who is stepping down as the ADL’s national director this coming July. “The unanimous choice of the 16-member succession committee is Jonathan A. Greenblatt, a social entrepreneur, government official and corporate executive with extensive experience in building socially conscious businesses and creating innovative public-private partnerships,” noted the ADL’s press release, issued on Thursday, Nov. 6. Greenblatt, 43, has been the director of the...

    In the past, I've advised against trying to impeach the reprobate-in-chief. It seemed futile and self-defeating. I've changed my mind. Whether or not it succeeds, it's the only way for Republicans to show that they're serious about stopping a president who's like a car without brakes barreling down a mountainside – smashing the Constitution and running over representative government. Congressional Republicans, led by the Indomitable John Boehner and Stalwart Mitch McConnell, are said to be considering such drastic measures as – have mercy! – suing Obama. Other suggested remedies include denying funding to programs which would oversee the amnesty and...
  • Rand Paul's Obscene Pandering on Ferguson Should Sink his Chances for 2016

    Just as Hillary's "What difference at this point does it make" remark about Benghazi during a Congressional hearing will come back to haunt her, Rand Paul's politically correct spasm over Ferguson (his August 14 essay in Time Magazine) should preclude the possibility of Son of Ron getting anywhere near the GOP nomination in 2016. When the left starts swooning over a Republican, it's a dead-giveaway. A posting on the Washington Post's politics blog gushes, "Rand Paul's (Time) op-ed on Ferguson shows why he is the most interesting voice in the GOP right now." In this context, translate "interesting voice" as...
  • Bishop: Catholic Mom Murdered by Gay Man 'Died a Martyr for her faith'

    A Catholic mother who was brutally murdered by a gay man because she challenged him about his homosexual lifestyle “died as a martyr for her faith,” according to Bishop Thomas Paprocki, head of the Catholic diocese in Springfield, Ill., who also said the woman’s “murder was widely ignored by the media,” apparently for political reasons. The woman, Mary Stachowicz, a 51-year-old mother of four children and devout Catholic, was beaten, stabbed, raped, and strangled to death by then-19-year-old Nicholas Gutierrez on Nov. 13, 2002. He then wrapped her body in plastic and stuffed it under the floorboards of his apartment....
  • Mitt Romney: How to Lose the Most Important Election of our Time by not Really Trying

    Mitt Romney is losing the most important election of our lifetime. Don’t be deceived by the polls that show him “within the margin of error.” Don’t put your faith in last minute media-buys from the campaign’s gargantuan war chest. Don’t expect the debates to turn things around. The president may not be an electrifying speaker, but he knows how to demagogue. His message will be: I love the middle class; Mitt Romney wants tax cuts for millionaires and eats children. And, don’t count on the fact that public opinion is against Obama on almost every significant issue. (At no time...

    UPDATE: Hours after publishing this critique, the BBC published a separate followup reflecting Maariv’s apology, while the Daily Telegraph removed the story from its website. We wait for AFP and YNet News to correct the record as well. * * * A truly bizarre story appeared in the Israeli press in the past few weeks. According to YNet News: A Jerusalem rabbinical court recently sentenced a wandering dog to death by stoning. The cruel sentence stemmed from the suspicion that the hound was the reincarnation of a famous secular lawyer, who insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago. The story...

    The night they drove old Hosni down — and all the neo-cons were singing. Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol was the kapellmeister. Prior to the exit of Beast Mubarak, Kristol (in yet another of his Olympian pronouncements), thundered: “The United States must support the Egyptian awakening, and has a paramount moral and strategic interest in real democracy in Egypt and freedom for the Egyptian people. The question is how the U.S. government can do its best to help the awakening turn out well.”How do we know neo-cons aren’t really conservatives? Conservatives are realists. They confront reality without ideological blinders. They...

    In January of 2009, huge numbers of eager liberals made the trip down to Washington D.C. to celebrate the inauguration of Hope and Change. The mood of the day was optimism. The big change had finally come. Nearly two years later, they returned to Washington D.C. on buses for Jon Stewart’s clownfest, but the mood had changed. Contempt had replaced optimism. The left wing of the Democratic party had reverted to its Bush era sneers and jibes. The mocking costumes and signs had been staples of Anti-War rallies and Anti-Bush rallies from 2001 to 2008. But this was not a...

    I believe in equality for all. I support civil rights, women’s rights, gay rights, universal health care, feeding the poor, social justice, separation of church and state, access to education, diversity, the arts, animal rights (I have not eaten meat or poultry in 33 years), and more. I marched against the war in Vietnam, protested the bombing in Cambodia, and advocated for affirmative action. In terms of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I met with the Palestinian leadership, including Yasir Arafat, as part of my peace activism. I believed, up to a point, in Oslo, and maintain that while a failure, it...

    [The following, by Tom Mountain, here in full, appears in this week's Jewish Advocate] The rabbis could barely contain their glee at meeting their president for the first time. Ignoring protocol, they crowded around him, hands outstretched, in a sincere, even loving attempt, to express their adulation. One rabbi grasped the president's hand, looked him in the eye, and said, "Mr. President, I believe that had history placed you in your special position during World War II, there would not have been a Holocaust." The president, visibly moved, was uncharacteristically speechless. Another rabbi, so overcome with emotion at standing in...

    I went dumpster diving out back behind the “Lizard Lounge” over at 1.0 and found this apparent rough draft of a post Charles might be planning. Looks like he’s discovered yet more dangerous right wing extremists who are planning a revolution. (By the way, folks, this is satire.) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Following up on my post from yesterday that outed Jim Thompson, the founder of the right wing website Free Republic, for calling for a revolution to overturn the results of last November’s election, it seems the kook right wing fringe blogosphere’s case of Obama Derangement Syndrome is getting even worse. Obviously...
