  • Democrats redefine center as theirs collapses

    The Hill ^ | February 16, 2020 | J. T. Young
    With their centerís collapse, Democratsí only hope of reconstituting it is by redefining the center. As the Democratic primary race moves leftward, the definitions of their candidates are moving right. It resembles a play in which we are expected to accept that the same actors have become different characters simply because of a costume change. When the 2020 Democratic field was taking shape a year ago, its spread was straightforward. Former Vice President Joe Biden was the establishment anchor, in a center-left, front-runner position. A couple of candidates were to his right Ė Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Rep....
  • As hurdles mount for Obama Presidential Center, worry and anxiety grow on South Side

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 10/24/18 | Lolly Bowean, Jeff Coen
    **SNIP** But recently, as development of the Obama center has faced obstacles and groundbreaking has been pushed back, Winston and some of her neighbors have begun to worry about the projectís fate. It faces a legal challenge in federal court over the use of park space for the center, and its chief local backer, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, recently announced he will not be seeking a third term as mayor. The result is anxiousness that has swept over some residents and communities on the South Side as they brace for a possible long wait, a bitter fight or even another grand...

    Townhall ^ | 04/18/2018 | Laura Hollis
    For months, the American press, aghast at Donald Trump's presidency, has been predicting a ďblue waveĒ -- voters sweeping Republicans out office and instead electing a massive number of Democrats. Thereís no question that Democrats and progressives despise Trump and are motivated to vote. But the left-wing media engages in what I call ďprogpagandaĒ -- the promotion of things they want to be true, endeavoring to shape events, and not merely report on them. This is the same group predicting with ď99 percent certaintyĒ that Hillary Clinton was going to win the White House. American voters appear to have gotten...
  • Should Democrats Embrace the Center or Abandon It?

    03/22/2018 5:15:39 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 27 replies
    Over the next six months, Democratic voters will be asked again and again whether their partyís candidates should hew to the center or move to the left. How voters answer that question will help shape the strategic plans of the dozen or more Democrats jockeying to beat President Trump in 2020. The intraparty tension has been simmering for months. Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, goaded party centrists last May when he declared abortion a Democratic litmus test: ďEvery Democrat, like every American, should support a womanís right to make her own choices about her body and her...

    SIERRA VISTA Ė A Hispanic-owned construction company from Sierra Vista won one of four contracts awarded this week to build prototypes of President Donald Trumpís proposed border wall with Mexico, the second round of awards in as many weeks. KWR Construction Inc. was chosen by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to build a demonstration section of wall near San Diego using materials other than concrete. The award comes a week after CBP awarded four contracts for wall prototypes made of concrete, one of which was won by Fisher Industries of Tempe. Construction on all the prototypes should begin this fall...

    The Center for Security Policy on Monday called¬†for the firing of National Security Adviser H.R.

    **SNIP** Reviews of Thursdayís op-ed werenít much better, with Slate calling it ďasinine,Ē for example. A noted a HuffPost headline read, ďItís 2017. Democrats Should Really Just Stop Taking Mark Pennís Advice.Ē Dan Pfeiffer, a former top Obama aide, told me, ďThere can and should be a robust debate in the party about where we go in the post-Obama era.

    Houston,TX- Surrounded by a phalanx of attorneys and a crush of news reporters and cameramen, David Daleiden turned himself in to the Houston courts on Thursday in response to the indictments handed down last week by a Harris County grand jury. Those indictments, one felony and one misdemeanor, were related to his undercover journalism work that exposed Planned Parenthood's illegal profit -taking from sale of aborted baby organs. Operation Rescue's Cheryl Sullenger and the Christian's Defense Coalition's Rev. Patrick Mahoney were in court in support of Daleiden, head of the Center for Medical Progress, as he reported to two different...

    Footage from security cameras in the supermarket in Beit Horon, outside of which a stabbing attack took place Monday night, shows how an intrepid shopper managed to keep the two knife-wielding Arab terrorists at bay with a shopping cart. Video You Tube link is misdirected to something unrelated. The two had stabbed a woman aged 23, critically wounding her, and also stabbed and moderately wounded a woman aged 58, adjacent to the shop before trying to enter and inflict more casualties. Fortunately one civilian on hand showed great ingenuity in pushing the terrorists with a cart at the door of...

    SIERRA VISTA ‚ÄĒ The near-empty shell of the former Sierra Vista Regional Health Center is slowly giving way to demolition work as crews prepare the decades-old facility for its new life as Cochise College‚Äôs Downtown Center, set to open next year. When the facility was officially gifted to the college by the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona earlier this year, it effectively expanded the square-footage of the college‚Äôs Sierra Vista Campus by 50 percent, with just over 90,000 square feet of additional space to house the college‚Äôs nursing and allied health programs, culinary arts program and more. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôve basically gutted...

    Awkward. Members of the House Intelligence Committee were not briefed on the plans the White House announced today for a new cyber integration center modeled on the National Counterterrorism Center, a source with knowledge of the discussions told POLITICO. And theyíre not happy about it. The Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center, projected to have a staff of 50 when it is fully operational next year, is funded by a $35 million line item in the ďblack budgetĒ request for intelligence funding. Representatives from the Office of the Director for National Intelligence briefed committee members on the budget last week,

    La Salette Journey ^ | December 3, 2014 | Paul Melanson
    Cary Bogue, owner of the Facebook page entitled "Catholics and Protestants United Against Christian Discrimination, has said, "We all know Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is an avowed atheist, pro-abortion and a strong advocate for the LGBT." See here. Apparently so. Back in 2012, on the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, an exercise in judicial fabrication, I posted a photograph of an aborted [murdered] baby on Facebook. The photograph was immediately removed by Facebook and I received this notice: "One of Your Photos Was Removed. One of your photos was recently removed because it was found to violate Facebook policies....

    La Salette Journey ^ | December 2, 2014 | Paul Melanson
    In the past I have warned about demonic activity and doctrinal dissent at Saint Joseph's Parish in Cleghorn; things ranging from a priest viewing child pornography to a parish secretary who is photographed in a state of undress and sporting devil's horns to a Deacon who promotes the writings of an admitted sexual predator to a priest who would omit the Creed. This same parish has been intimately connected with the Cleghorn Neighborhood Center in Fitchburg. See here. The problem? As the Lepanto Institute reports: For Fiscal Year 2014-2015, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development provided a $35,000 grant to...

    Pope Francis has thanked those who seek to,"..recover man[kind], restoring him to the centre of reflection and the centre of life. 'He is the king of the universe'! he exclaimed. 'And this is not theology, it is philosophy and human reality.'" (See here). Does Pope Francis really mean to convey that theology has nothing to do with "human reality." As I have said so many times before, the retreat from truth is necessary before the reign of Antichrist. See here for example. There is a preparation. Many are "intellectualizing" themselves into dissent and apostasy from the true Faith. The battlefield...
  • A Shortage of STEM Workers?

    Alex Nowrasteh at the Cato Institute and Philip Wolgin at the Center for American Progress (CAP) each comment on, but don't really try to refute, a new report that I co-authored on the lack of a shortage of STEM workers. The American Immigration Lawyers Association's Paul McDaniel also comments on the report at the association's American Immigration Council website. Like Nowrasteh and Wolgin, McDaniel doesn't really try to refute the report. He cites Cato and CAP and also repeat a number of the points from our report. Let me address Cato's blog first because both Wolgin and McDaniel partly rely...

    New York has knocked London from its position as the worldís leading global financial center after seven years, according to the Global Financial Centers Index compiled by London-based consultancy Z/Yen. London slipped from the top of the global rankings, scoring 784 against 786 for New York, because a series of own goals had tarnished its reputation, the report said. [Ö] Hong Kong and Singapore took third and fourth spots respectively, the same as a year ago, the survey showed. But the gap between the ďBig FourĒ and the chasing pack, led by ZŁrich, Tokyo and Seoul, was narrowing, it said....
