  • Note to NeverTrumps: Trump's Character Is Admirable

    As more and more people who hate Trump are forced to admit his achievements as president, they are doubling down on character assassination. Even Trump voters often preface their satisfaction with Trump's actions by criticizing his tweets or his personality. Here's an alternate take on things: Trump's character is responsible for his outstanding performance in his first year as president. If you want to know who someone is, you look at what he does. What we have: a booming economy, growing jobs, more lawful governance, fewer regulations, more global security. What character traits this took: hard work, focus, commitment, courage,...
  • Handguns and Russian collusion

    Handguns. Liberals tell us how evil they are. Liberals tell us how evil they believe Trump to be. They claim the Russians somehow meddled in our elections. What about the use of Russian handguns in murders in the United States? Almost never. Rarely are Tokarevs or Makarovs used in murders in the U.S. to kill someone. You would think the Russians would be more active in having their weapons used to kill U.S. citizens. Fact is, even though U.S. handguns are available in much higher numbers, that is not the issue statistically. THE truth is that Americans who buy Russian...
  • What Are Our Representatives Supposed to Do?

    Townhall.com ^ | November 15, 2017 | Ben Shapiro
    Warning Graphic LanguageDuring America's founding era, a significant debate took place about the nature of representation in a democratically elected government. Were representatives supposed to act as simple proxies for their constituents? Or were they supposed to exercise independent judgment? Edmund Burke was a forceful advocate for the latter position: A representative, he said, was supposed to exercise his "mature judgment, his enlightened conscience. And "he ought not to sacrifice to you, to any man, or to any set of men living." John Stuart Mill, too, believed that representatives ought to act independently; he said: "A person whose desires and...

    I knew the late Justice Antonin Scalia a little, and like millions of others, I was an avid fan of his jurisprudence, the great bulk of which he produced after I was no longer a law student, so much the worse for me. What do I have to do with it? Nothing, except that reading opinions as a law student was often like trying to swallow great bowls of sawdust -- without milk. Very few judges can write well. On the rare occasions when I came across a decision by Learned Hand, I would practically weep with gratitude for his...

    The New York Daily News ^ | 11-4-16 | Lisa Schiffren
    By now, Hillary Clinton is as polished as politicians come. At 69, her hair is perfectly coiffed and colored, her makeup is subtle and her clothes are expensive. A trained debater, educated at Wellesley and Yale Law School, with decades of public life, she speaks well. In an election that she has framed around temperamental fitness for the presidency, her deliberate comments and careful parsing of words suggest that she possesses the steadiness and judgment required. That is the image we saw when she stood on a debate stage with the far less controlled, more hot-tempered Donald Trump. Clinton’s public...

    You will not soon forget that Hillary laughed about the fact she got Taylor off for raping the 12-year-old child Recently I wrote an article about Hillary Clinton and one of her many scandals: Travelgate. Today, we are revisiting another scandal regarding Hillary regarding her defense of a rapist in 1975. According to a 2008 Newsday story, by Glenn Thrush, Hillary talks about her ‘35 years of experience making change and recounted her work in the 70s on behalf of battered and neglected children and impoverished legal aid clients.’ But, what she did not talk about in her campaign speech...

    Gary Byrne’s "Crisis of Character" contains shocking new details about the Clinton administration. Working as a member of the White House Secret Service, Byrne witnessed a severe deficit of character in the administration, from Bill Clinton’s many sordid affairs to Hillary Clinton’s explosive temper at the smallest of infractions.What he witnessed convinced him that the Clintons should never regain the White House. Here are five of his most shocking accounts. 1.       Hillary was verbally and physically abusive to security officers, even throwing a Bible at a Secret Service agent.When not in public, Hillary was unfailingly rude to her security detail. She held...

    Dad taught me to work hard and long and watch out for details, something I have treasured during my life Character must be sought, taught, and caught but often it is fought! Whatever character I have, I got it from my father who died at age 66. My dad was a highly principled and successful man with a sixth grade education! At this time of year, it is appropriate that I consider how much I owe him. Much of what I am and what I have accomplished is because of him. Dad dropped out of school in the sixth grade...

    The Qualified Opinion ^ | April 4, 2016
    Three days. Five categorically different statements about abortion. Donald Trump officially has more flip-flops than Old Navy, and yet his supporters stand by him because they feel the economy is more important. More important to trust a man who has bankrupted several of his businesses because he borrowed too much money at too high of rates because bankers didn’t have enough faith in his business plans to give him normal lending rates. More important to trust a man who “stands” against illegal immigration despite being fined for hiring illegal immigrants to work on his projects and having hired illegal immigrants...

    Back in January, I asked: “Why the Sudden Love Among Establishment Republicans for Donald Trump?” “It has," I wrote, “been quite an experience -- half amusing, half alarming -- to behold the sudden transformation of Donald Trump from pariah to desperate hope of the Republican Party.”In the weeks that have followed, more and more GOP-friendly pundits, functionaries, factota, courtiers, lackeys, lobbyists, consultants, and eminences grises have boarded the Trump Express. They explain, if pressed, that: a) Trump is inevitable and one has to get with the program; and/or b) the only alternative is Hillary Clinton, and you wouldn’t want that,...

    1) Trump has favorability ratings that make him unelectable: The American public is very familiar with Donald Trump and people hate his guts. Trump's current favorable/unfavorable rating is 34/58. Just as a point of comparison, the two biggest landslides in history were against Jimmy Carter (33/58) and Walter Mondale (34/40). Trump is so unpopular with the general electorate that we might as well be running Jared Fogle or Bill Cosby.2) Trump consistently loses to Hillary Clinton in head-to-head polls: Given that so many people know Trump and already dislike him, it's hard to understand why anyone thinks he'll win in...

    Today was a big beautiful day. Today was the day I started phone calling for Ted Cruz at home. In the comfort of my cozy abode, I called about 95 residences in the Texas area likely to come out and vote for Ted Cruz. Many were not home, or did not answer. I contacted around 55 total people, a few in the same household. Did I take perfect notes? No. These numbers are based on crude tally-marking on a sheet of note paper. It was actually kind of fun; most of all, I felt like I was making a difference....

    The American Thinker ^ | February 4, 2016 | Ed Straker
    One of the things that has troubled me the most about Donald Trump is his lack of emotional maturity. Unlike with a reality TV show host, it is vital that the president of the United States be grown up and mature. But Trump, time and time again, acts like a child, name-calling, holding grudges, and crying when things don't go his way. Case in point: the Iowa caucuses. On election night Trump grudgingly congratulated Ted Cruz. But now he's saying that Cruz "stole" the Iowa caucuses by repeating a news report that Ben Carson was about to leave the presidential...

    AMES, Iowa - Rep. Steve King , an Iowa Republican and Ted Cruz supporter, says Donald Trump bought his endorsements. Trump recently received high profile endorsements from Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. King reiterated his statement about the endorsements to the Daily Caller on Saturday during a Cruz rally at the Gateway Hotel and stressed that he "knows things." "He has, from a regular person's perspective, unlimited resources and he's willing to use whatever access he has in order to get the endorsements that he wants," King...

    Of all the many things said about Donald Trump, what was said by Roger Ailes, head of the Fox News Channel, said it all in just two words: "Grow up!" It is amazing how many people have been oblivious to this middle-aged man's spoiled brat behavior, his childish boastfulness about things he says he is going to do, and his petulant response to every criticism with ad hominem replies. He has boasted that his followers would stick by him even if he committed murder. But is that something to boast about? Is it not an insult to his followers, if...

    CV cannot remain on the sidelines any longer. As Iowans prepare to cast the first votes in the 2016 nomination process, we owe you our thoughts. While we are not officially endorsing a candidate at this time, we believe it is important to share some critical thoughts on the race, or at least on one candidate in particular. As Catholics, we are called to participate in the democratic process. The Church does not endorse candidates for public office. That job rests with us, the laity. No candidate is perfect, and no simple checklist is sufficient. Prudence is a necessity. Some...
  • Pamela Geller named Woman of the Year (by WND)

    12/31/2015 3:19:42 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 5 replies
    Backing down is not in Pamela Geller's lexicon. In May 2015, Geller hosted an art exhibit and drawing contest featuring images of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Her aim was to stand up for free speech by showing that Muslims could not intimidate non-Muslim Americans into following Shariah blasphemy laws, which prohibit any depictions of Muhammad. Two gunmen showed up at the Garland, Texas, event and started shooting, injuring a security officer before being killed by police. Frightened into silence? Not Geller. A month later, she launched a new billboard-ad campaign featuring the winning drawing from the Muhammad art contest. The...

    "......Trump's twofer-attacking Carson's faith and character-reveals his glaring blind spots. No candidate should ever, ever attack an evangelical for his faith in Iowa, of all places. Iowa is home to a hugely influential evangelical community that won't particularly warm to a candidate who implies Seventh Day Adventists are members of some wacko cult. Carson has great appeal to the evangelical community. Although the percentage of Iowans who are evangelical Christians is about one in four,...they represent nearly 60 percent of the Republican caucus turnout.........It is ironic that Trump, who is a long-time member of the Presbyterian Church USA, would indirectly...
