  • A Revision on the Bill of Rights, Part III (a new constitutional argument to seize guns alert)

    The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights. In addition, one's mental capacity is a major factor in deciding whether a man or woman has the right to have a firearm.
  • Republican party now more hated in US than it's been in 24 YEARS and Donald Trump may be to blame

    (UK) Daily Mail ^ | April 29, 2016 | James Wilkinson
    The Republican Party is now more hated than it's been in 24 years, new research shows - and it might be the fault of Donald Trump. In October, 37 percent of people polled had a favorable view of the Republican Party and 58 percent viewed it negatively. Now those numbers are 33 percent in favor and 62 percent against, according to data released by the Pew Research Center Thursday. That puts the party at its lowest point since 1992 - the latest point in a drop that has coincided with the rise of Trump.
  • Insiders: Clinton would crush Trump in November

    Politico ^ | April 29, 2016 | Katie Glueck
    In the swing states that matter most in the presidential race, Donald Trump doesn’t have a prayer against Hillary Clinton in the general election. That's according to top operatives, strategists and activists in 10 battleground states who participated in this week's POLITICO Caucus. Nearly 90 percent of them said Clinton would defeat Trump in their home states in a November match-up. Republicans are only slightly more bullish on Trump’s prospects than Democrats: More than three-quarters of GOP insiders expect Clinton to best the Republican front-runner in a general-election contest in their respective states. Among Democrats, the belief is nearly universal:...

    Caitlyn Jenner has taken Donald Trump up on his offer to use the restroom of her choosing while visiting one of his Trump Towers - and recorded the landmark moment for posterity. "A trans woman in New York, I gotta take a pee," Jenner says in a Facebook video filmed outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower near Central Park. "Last week Donald Trump said I could take a pee anywhere in a Trump facility," she continues. "I am gonna go take a pee in the ladies' room." After returning from her brief bathroom trip, Jenner thanks Trump for the...

    Hillary Clinton's closest aide Huma Abedin is so devoted to her boss that she almost sobbed upon learning Clinton had to carry her own bag, a Newsweek profile revealed Thursday. "Abedin took her duties so seriously, the source recalled, that when she learned that Clinton had once carried her own bag up a flight of stairs in her aide's absence, Abedin nearly burst into tears," Newsweek reported. The same source said that Clinton once snapped her fingers and said "Gum" to Abedin. "A lot of times, Hillary would snap her fingers and go, 'Gum.' And Huma would fetch it," the...

Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. ICE also said that the group were convicted of 8,234 violent crimes. [Snip] Meanwhile, ICE said that it has also slashed the number of...

    Democratic strategist Dave "Mudcat" Saunders believes Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton like a "baby seal," and that working class whites who haven't already left the Democratic Party for cultural reasons will due so now for economic ones. "I know a ton of Democrats - male, female, black and white - here [in southern Virginia] who are going to vote for Trump. It's all because of economic reasons. It's because of his populist message," Mudcat told The Daily Caller Wednesday. [Snip] "Hillary hasn’t been shot at yet. I hear on TV people taking about Bernie Sanders being negative, he ain’t...

    Over the past several months, the Clinton campaign and its celebrity supporters have worked hard to convince the American public that "Hillary" is synonymous with feminism. On the campaign trail, Lena Dunham stated, "Our first female president would send a message that we are here. We are ready to lead. In fact, she has been leading all along." In a pro-Hillary video posted on YouTube, Jamie Lee Curtis said, "I want my President to make decisions on my behalf based on her experience, her command, her intelligence and from her big, warm, embracing feminine heart."

    CBS News ^ | April 21, 2016 | Larry Light
    The fabulously rich candidate becomes the hero of working-class people by identifying with their economic distress. That formula worked for Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s. Today, Donald Trump's campaign benefits from a similar populist appeal to beleaguered, white, blue-collar voters -- his key constituency. Trump's thumping victory in Tuesday's New York primary renews his momentum as he struggles to overcome the GOP establishment's efforts to block him from seizing the party's presidential nomination. If he continues to win as big as he did in his home state, he may have the delegates needed to prevail in the party convention...

    An outbreak of highly drug-resistant "super-gonorrhoea" is sweeping across Britain and could become untreatable, medics fear. A national alert was triggered by Public Health England last September after the rare strain of the sexually transmitted superbug was detected in 15 people. The number of confirmed cases has now risen to 34 and, according to reports, there is "huge concern" among doctors that it is spreading across the UK. And experts said it is at risk of becoming untreatable if the only fully effective antibiotic remaining fails.

    DePaul University students, don't fear! There will be no more political "chalking" at your school. Apparently, someone wrote - with chalk - on a campus sidewalk last week: "Make DePaul Great Again." The message sent students and staff into a tailspin. The xenophobia! The bigotry! The racism! "While these chalk messages are part of national agendas in a heated political battle, they appeared on campus at a time of significant racial tension in our country and on college campuses. DePaul is no exception," DePaul's vice president for student affairs Eugene Zdziarski wrote in a campus-wide email obtained by Campus Reform....

    After a Tulane University fraternity built a wall with the Donald Trump slogan "Make America Great Again" written across it as satire, now a group of whining college students are petitioning the university, saying the wall is "overtly threatening" to Muslim and Hispanic students. The Hayride reported late yesterday how the Kappa Alpha fraternity erected their annual wall with a Donald Trump slogan to be satirical. But apparently a group of football players didn’t get the satire, prompting them to physically tear down the wall, which was on private property. Check out the video of that incident HERE. Now, a...

    In an interview with two Philadelphia newspapers Monday, Hillary Clinton again refused to release the transcripts to her pricy Wall Street speeches but insisted that she was the most transparent candidate for president. "Well, I can only say this: let's make sure everybody is already as transparent as I," Clinton said when asked whether her refusal to release the transcripts signaled that she had "something to hide." Clinton avoided discussing the transcripts and instead focused on the "30 years" worth of tax returns that she had released. Seeing as rival Bernie Sanders has yet to release his tax returns, Clinton...

    After several years of incarceration in his native Romania, Marcel Lazar Lehel, aka Guccifer, has finally arrived this week in Alexandria, Virginia, to face nine charges of computer hacking. Guccifer, it will be recalled, is the one who revealed the presence of Hillary Clinton's private server through his hacking of Sidney Blumenthal's email account. Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne of Fox point out the interesting timing of his extradition: Romanian media have reported the [FBI] request came on or about Dec. 29, 2015. That would have been shortly after the intelligence community's identification of emails beyond "top secret" on...

    A decade after the arrest of polygamous prophet Warren Jeffs, insiders say his church has literally become a place of feast or famine, of haves and have-nots. Prison has done little to loosen Jeffs' hold on many of his followers, even if he is now a convicted child-sex offender serving a life sentence. They still await his revelations and follow his directives, both difficult and bizarre. But some members are leaving the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - and disobeying their prophet's longstanding orders to avoid law enforcement and "answer them nothing."

    Former law enforcement and intelligence officials contacted by TheDCNF agree if there is wrongdoing, it is likely prosecutors will focus on the classified documents. The most serious charges are felonies cited in Title 18 of the U.S. Code of the Espionage Act in sections 793, 798 and 1001. Experts contacted by TheDCNF say these could serve as the foundation for any criminal prosecution of Clinton or her aides.

    Steven Shepard of Politico wrote an important article last week about Donald Trump's "rock bottom" ratings with women. And his low standing with women has certainly become a much-discussed topic among pundits analyzing the Donald Trump candidacy. An overlooked story, however, is that Hillary Clinton, who might become the first female president in the history of the United States, isn't far behind in her unfavorability ratings among women. Our just-released poll shows that Donald Trump has a 68 percent unfavorable rating among women. But 58 percent of women say they view Hillary Clinton unfavorably. In fact, Hillary's unfavorable rating was...

Pressed on whether the FBI probe could interfere with her path to the nomination, Clinton said she was not "concerned" about it.

    It's very difficult, keeping up with the ever-changing PC permutations of the language. We all understand that what was once global cooling and then global warming is now just plain climate change. And that when Democrats pander to the "working class," they really mean the "non-working class." With these people, every day is 1984 and they're the Ministry of Truth. Obamacare is the Affordable Care Act - and it's unaffordable. And when your income-tax return is docked because you couldn't afford affordable care, it's not a fine, it's a "shared responsibility tax." How about the word "settled"? Settled science is...

    The National Enquirer's name in journalism is synonymous with factually unsupported drivel of the lowest kind. It is a sacred truth that no responsible journalist would reference the kind of garbage found in this tabloid. But somehow it's perfectly appropriate for the same responsible journalists to report the sleaze over and over, emphasizing, of course, that the source is the awful National Enquirer. This is what the networks have done to Sen. Ted Cruz, who the Enquirer recently claimed had affairs with five secret mistresses, including Trump's spokeswoman Katrina Pierson.

    New York's Democratic governor banned state travel to North Carolina this week, citing its residents' supposed lack of equal protection under the law, weeks after he announced efforts to facilitate travel from New York to Cuba, which is ruled by a repressive communist dictatorship that routinely imprisons political dissenters. "In New York, we believe that all people—regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation—deserve the same rights and protections under the law," said Gov. Andrew Cuomo in announcing a ban on "non-essential" state travel to North Carolina. The move came in response to a new North Carolina law that restricts...

    It is widely known that in the past 6 months there has been a loud debate about helicopter money, i.e., giving out ordinary people (bypassing the banks) money directly printed by the Fed. What is less known is that when it comes to the most despicable underbelly of American society, cash to the tune of $1000 per month is already being "helicoptered" to some of the most brazen criminals living in the US today with one simple condition: "don't kill people." * * * Take the case of Lonnie Holmes, 21, who lives in Richmond, a working-class suburb north of...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | March 28, 2016 | William A. Jacobson
    Proving her worthiness for the throne if Hillary taken down by legal troubles. Elizabeth Warren is on the, er, attack against Donald Trump, who slashed back by mocking Warren's false appropriation of Indian identity to try to advance her career. The back and forth begs the real question, which is why did Warren decide to launch a tirade now against Trump? Trump has been being Trump at least since last summer. If Warren wanted to go ballistic on him, there were plenty of earlier opportunities. Senator Elizabeth Warren's harsh Twitter criticism of Donald Trump My theory of Warren is that...

    Why is it that today even a woman as impressive as Hillary Clinton is judged not by her merits and extensive resume alone, but held to a pernicious double standard? Twenty-two years ago, I had the honor of introducing Hillary Clinton at a Humanitarian Award dinner, given by The Elie Wiesel Foundation. I said of her then and it holds true today, "There is no one in this country who would deny the competence, intellect, stamina, warmth and courage of Hillary Rodham Clinton... But the criticism of Hillary Clinton has again demonstrated that the strong, competent woman is still a...

    A new report says 147 FBI agents are involved in the investigation surrounding Hillary Clinton's private email server and handling of classified material. The Washington Post reports that the large number of agents have been deployed to run down leads in the investigation, citing a lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James Comey. The Post reported that the FBI has accelerated its investigation because officials want to avoid potentially announcing any action close to the November election. Comey has signaled that he is personally close to the probe into Clinton's personal email account used during her time as secretary of State.

    End of the American Dream ^ | March 22, 2016 | Michael Snyder
    I realize that the headline of this article sounds like it must be false, but it is actually completely true. The Temple of Baal (also known as the Temple of Bel) was a world famous landmark that was located in Palmyra, Syria. In August 2015, this temple was destroyed by ISIS, and most of the world recoiled in terror at the loss of a "cultural heritage site". In an attempt to "preserve history", two exact replicas of the 50 foot arch that stood at the entrance to the temple will be erected in April 2016 in Times Square in...

    As New York moves to decriminalize low-level offenses, arguing enforcement is "rigged against communities of color," other large cities are coming under pressure from the Justice Department to do the same thing. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has issued a warning to municipal and state judges across the country that their courts could lose federal funding if they don't ease up on fines and arrest warrants for minor crimes involving poor offenders, indigent minorities in particular. In lieu of fines and jail time, Lynch urges the nation's 6,500 municipal courts to provide an avenue for offenders to perform "community service" or...

    In this strangest of primary seasons, women exist primarily in terms of their relationships to the men they marry or question or critique. They can either be beauties or beasts or "the love of my life." They can be "crazy" or "losers," "fat pigs" or "dogs." They can be mothers and daughters. They can be the currency with which you buy voters' belief in your machismo and alpha-maleness, or they can be the sand you kick in the face of a "New York bully." In every case, whether they are assets or liabilities, they are objects. In no case are...

    The Lid ^ | March 25, 2016 | Jeff Dunetz
    PDFs of the National Enquirer article about Ted Cruz having five affairs were sent to me by a friend on Wednesday evening. When he sent it, my buddy reminded me that the National Enquirer has been right about this kind of stuff before, like in the case of former Senator Edwards. I read the article about the Cruz affairs, but for many reasons including the fact that Roger Stone, Trump friend and "hit man" was quoted in the story paid it no heed (although it did make me wonder if Stone is the one who planted the story). My...

    The National Basketball Association has, in recent years, been a league that's been ahead of the curve when it comes to responding to discrimination. When former Clippers owner Donald Sterling was taped uttering racist remarks, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned him from the league for life. It was the first of the four major professional sports leagues to have an openly gay player on one of its teams when Jason Collins played for the Brooklyn Nets in 2013. It also became the first league to have a full-time female coach when the San Antonio Spurs named Becky Hammon one of...

    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren blasted Donald Trump for his “hate-filled attacks” on her Native American heritage, disparaged his business record and labeled him “a threat” to America, previewing what one expert predicts will be her upcoming role as a peacekeeper between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. [Snip] She added: “I think that Donald Trump poses a real threat to this country, and that’s why I think it’s time to fight back against that threat.” Trump and Warren this week waged a war of words, with him dismissing her as “the Indian” after she repeatedly assailed him on Twitter for what...
