  • More reason to love Mike Rowe

    11/25/2014 2:39:58 AM PST · by Cincinatus' Wife · 5 replies
    American Thinker ^ | November 24, 2014 | Thomas Lifson
    Mike Rowe is a hero of mine, a tireless advocate of practical skills and knowledge who urges Americans to acquire a trade, rather than mindlessly go to college and acquire debt and a possibly useless degree. The host of former cable TV hit Dirty Jobs and current CNN hit Somebody’s Got to Do It, Rowe celebrates those who work hard and perfect their art at manual trades. He’s also a conservative (maybe you guessed that?), and one sharp dude. So when a troll went onto Rowe’s Facebook page and started posting inflammatory garbage about Republicans, Rowe spotted it while in...

    In just two years, Americans will be voting for our next president. Many, many potential Republican contenders are already positioning themselves to run. On the other hand, it appears that Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee for the Democrats. If you really try to understand how the Democrat Party works, this won’t be the case. Democrats Don’t Like To Play Next In LineRepublicans for many election cycles have used this method in selecting their non-incumbent candidate, and it has always been someone who was a heavy weight and usually came in second in the previous primary or election.

    The White House must have thought Republicans in Congress would fall in line behind Speaker John Boehner and let President Barack Obama do what he’s “gotta do” on executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Politico reports that as Republicans have instead organized behind incoming Senate Budget Committee chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to oppose the President, the Democrats and White House—including Obama himself—are showing signs of weakness. Obama showed his frustration during a press conference in Myanmar on Friday, Politico’s Seung Min Kim and Carrie Budoff Brown wrote late Friday night. “They [Republicans] have the ability to fix the...

    The American Con sevative ^ | Oct. 21, 2014 | BRUCE BARTLETT
    According to exit polls in 2008, Obama ended up with 20 percent of the conservative vote. Even in 2012, after four years of relentless conservative attacks, he still got 17 percent of the conservative vote, with 11 percent of Tea Party supporters saying they cast their ballots for Obama. They were not wrong. In my opinion, Obama has governed as a moderate conservative—essentially as what used to be called a liberal Republican before all such people disappeared from the GOP. He has been conservative to exactly the same degree that Richard Nixon basically governed as a moderate liberal, something no...

Some of the incoming freshmen will likely join the ranks of conservatives who frequently oppose leadership initiatives.Among the new freshmen, for instance, is one congressman-elect who has called Hillary Clinton the "anti-Christ," another who has suggested Muslims don't deserve First Amendment rights, and yet another who has declared himself open to the idea of the United States invading...

Since leaving Congress in 2013, West has been a commentator on Fox News, a blogger and a fundraiser for conservative veteran and minority...

They did an intense search of his phone, laptop and belongings. No, no. LaBarbera is not an Islamic terrorist.

    The way a person's brain responds to a single disgusting image is enough to reliably predict whether he or she identifies politically as liberal or conservative.

P. Read Montague of Virginia Tech says he was initially inspired by evidence showing that an individual's political affiliation is almost as heritable as height.

    Conservatism is supposed to mean less government, especially in terms of spending. In Texas, nearly every Republican candidate takes a hard turn to the right to prove just how conservative they have been. This marketing strategy has proved quite successful, considering that Republicans are expected to again dominate our state executive and legislative branches. How has the record matched with the rhetoric over the years? Last year, a massive debate swirled about how much the state was increasing its budget. The Wall Street Journal and conservative/libertarian groups like the Texas Public Policy Foundation claimed the 2014-15 budget was increasing by...

I believe "We the People" can accomplish anything when liberty, hard work and accountability are non-negotiable. We can reform healthcare, without denying individual liberty and caving in to highly inept and wasteful socialized medicine. We can honor legal immigration, the promise that is America, without abandoning our borders and sovereignty. We can reward hard work and private enterprise, the innovative spirit of industry, instead...

    If a woman's ability to choose is truly paramount to liberals, why do they attack those who choose to stay at home and raise a family in a world that is brimming with immorality, promiscuity and absentee parents? Furthermore, if feminists truly care about women, shouldn't they support their rights as individuals, equals, regardless of their political or religious affiliation? The real war on women has nothing to do with opposing abortion, protecting a child's life, or free birth control; it's a perilous product of the radical left's undying hatred of those independent voices who don't share their sexist views...

    The most conservative and liberal names in America are Doyle and Natasha. Crowdpac, a nonpartisan group, focuses on how money and policy work in politics. The group scores all donors who have made two or more campaign contributions since 1980. Using that algorithm — and a cut-off of names with at least 1,000 donations made to avoid unusual names and outliers — Crowdpac built a tool to show how conservative or liberal first names are.

Business Success. He became one of the richest men in America through successful business ventures across numerous industries. His businesses gave jobs to tens of thousands of Americans while advancing the economy. Political Success. He served as Secretary of the Treasury from 1921 to 1932 under three presidents: Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. Working with President Coolidge, Mellon was instrumental in reviving the country from the depression of 1920-21. Unlike the later...

    Jeff Bell was a reform conservative before it was cool. He’s spent his career arguing with a risk-averse Republican establishment. He pushed Ronald Reagan to embrace the supply-side doctrine of tax cuts before deficit reduction. He spent the 1990s warning the GOP that its tax policy favored investment capital over human capital, corporate interests over working families. He designed a family-friendly flat tax that reduced payroll taxes, increased the child tax credit, taxed capital gains and regular income at the same rate, and ended business expensing. Payroll tax relief and a generous child tax credit are elements of today’s reform...

    On Friday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recorded a video for her new website to talk about her brief encounters with slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

Palin called Ventura a “jackass” and questioned how a former Navy SEAL like himself would go after a widow and the legacy of an “American hero.” ‘”You turn around and sue, expecting $2 million from a military widow and her fatherless children?

    Because the Kenyan squatter is in town, Tim Conway show was discussing fundraisers. Callers, who have attended fundraisers, were phoning in and telling what happens at the events. Here is the best anecdote. A young cadet from Cal State Fullerton was there with other cadets as part of the Honor Guard. When Reagan greeted them, he asked the cadet his name and was open to a question from him. The cadet said, "Can I ask anything?" The President said he could. So the cadet said (paraphrasing) - Cadet - Mr. President, do you remember when you were doing a sound...

    Weeks after an apparent case of politically motivated Internet censorship at a Connecticut high school, officials are still blaming the incident on technical malfunctions — even though evidence suggests human culpability. On May 27, shortly before his graduation, Andrew Lampart, an 18-year-old senior at Nonnewaug High School in Woodbury, Conn., set out to research gun control on a school computer in order to fulfill an assignment for a basic law course. He found that the website for the National Rifle Association was blocked, while websites supporting gun control remained accessible. Over the next five days, Lampart spent more time on...
