    Lyle Denniston, the National Constitution Center’s constitutional literacy adviser, tackles a weighty issue: the FDA’s constitutional ability to mandate calorie counts on restaurant menus nationwide. “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today finalized…rules requiring that calorie information be listed on menus and menu boards in chain restaurants [and] similar retail food establishments….The menu labeling final rule applies to restaurants and similar retail food establishments if they are part of a chain of 20 or more locations, doing business under the same name and offering for sale substantially the same menu items.

    Just because there’s no evidence that “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” ever happened, and plenty of evidence to the contrary, that doesn’t mean you should change your opinion. Why let the facts get in the way of a good story? The Smoking Gun: Included in the grand jury material released tonight after the announcement that no charges would be filed in the Michael Brown killing is a handwritten witness account stating that the teenager charged at Officer Darren Wilson “like a football player. Head down.” The unidentified witness wrote that the 18-year-old Brown “has his arms out with attitude,” while “The...

According to her, the whole thing “doesn’t add up.” “When people say, it does not add up, I will tell you what doesn’t add up, these photos,” Grace said, holding up copies pictures of Wilson’s face after the shooting. “I’ve looked at a them, I’ve studied them, and I was expecting to see his face mangled.” She added, “He doesn’t...

    Two realities are sinking into the psyche of the Democrat Party: They have no valuable ideas and the few ideas they were able to turn into law don’t work. Reasonable people would be embarrassed. They would stand up and walk away from the “table,” after reaching these conclusions; but the Democrats are not reasonable people. It is impossible to embarrass them. They have always been about getting and holding power and nothing else. Last week top Democrat New York Senator Chuck Schumer admitted that he and his Party made a mistake by passing Obamacare when they did. Of course he...

    Now that Barack Obama has granted millions of illegal aliens’ amnesty and stretched our social systems to the point of collapse the question becomes: How do we respond? First we need to determine who “we” are. We know Obama’s allies in the Republican Establishment (GOPe) are not on America’s side and although this complicates our task, it does not make it impossible. There are some things we could do, such as; mass deportations; withholding funds for Obama’s actions and/or blocking them with a government shutdown or even bringing impeachment proceedings against him. Each of these steps has merit, but each...

    Illinois Review ^ | November 25, 2014 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Ever since the Depression-era enlargement of the Leviathan, successfully marketed as the "New Deal," conservatives have argued against proposed government programs by shouting “They’re Unconstitutional!” and “They Don’t Work!” Such complaints often fall on deaf ears, because the Constitution is barely taught or respected nowadays, and the question of whether they work or not so often appears to be subjective. Perhaps it’s time for a new approach. I would submit that it’s time to stop saying that "Big Government Programs Don't Work".... because the fact is, they usually do. It usually isn't that they don't work, it's that they work...

If Darren Wilson is not indicted in this case for the killing of Mike Brown, that says that the quality and the value of black...

    Can it be true that Vladimir Lenin, the alleged “leader of the world Proletariat,” whose monuments adorned central squares in every Soviet town and who inspired generations of Soviet citizens, had been a mere agent provocateur working for the German government? In The World Crisis, Volume 5, Winston Churchill writes this about war-time Germany in 1917: “They turned upon Russia the most grisly of all weapons. They transported Lenin in a sealed truck like a plague bacillus from Switzerland into Russia.” The rest is history: Lenin staged a coup and withdrew Russia from World War One, conceding large swaths of...

    One of the laments of the Democrat has been that evil capitalists have been against “working families” (read: union labor) for the sake of profits; one example being the loss of jobs in manufacturing, or the destruction of the textile industry by shipping of jobs to lower-cost sites in Asia. The rejoinder of the right has been two-fold; first, that the union laborers priced themselves out of the market, and that many more jobs have been lost to mechanization and automation than to offshoring, and that the new knowledge jobs of the future depend on mathematics (e.g. designing and programming...

    Obama's Executive Immigration Order was a brilliant move on his part. Politically, that is. Obama needed to cater to the radical anti-border crowd, but he also needed to limit the legal challenges that would have mounted from all directions with a blanket amnesty. So what did he do? Nothing. No seriously, Obama didn't really do much of anything on the action front. He basically proclaimed that our government (his government these days) will no longer deport illegal immigrants. Obama made it sound like he was doing a lot. He made it sound like he was giving the radical amnesty groups...

The man with no credentials who was elected by the greedy to steal power and wealth from American citizens has finally made good on his promise to “fundamentally change America.” His illegal and unconstitutional royal edict granting amnesty to criminals he knows will vote Democrat, constitutes the most sweeping pardon of criminals in our history and probably out does Jimmy Carter’s pardon of Viet Nam draft dodgers.

Tonight in Las Vegas, he will announce an unconstitutional executive decree providing amnesty for millions upon millions of illegal aliens, mainly from Mexico. Why today?

    If there wasn't a known path to legal immigration, citizenship, then I could understand the need for mass reform. However, there is a well documented process, there has been for over a century, so why do we need to pardon and grant amnesty to "illegal" immigrants who chose to forgo those laws and not respect our sovereignty? Can I claim ignorance or racism if I'm arrested in Mexico, Venezuela, or El Salvador for doing the exact same thing? Will their governments pardon me and magically grant me the same rights as their natural born populace? No? Well how about 20...

    Believe it or not, I'm not offended by Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber calling the American people stupid for foolishly believing government healthcare was anything but a corrupt and radical ruse designed to control our lives. I'm simply disgusted so many voters, beneath the bankrupt generalities of "hope" and "change", were so easily manipulated by the lapdog media and a President who was never been held accountable for anything: most notably his radical past, beliefs and associates. Considering the size and scope of this cover-up - regardless of how many sounded the alarm - what else did we expect to happen?...

    Scarlet & Black, The Grinnell College Newspaper ^ | November 14, 2014 | Jon Sundby
    Chris Parker, a political science professor at the University of Washington, Seattle, spoke at Grinnell on Tuesday, Nov. 11, about his recent book “Change They Can’t Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in America.” Parker’s talk revolved around the rise and identity of the Tea Party within the American political system, with a particular emphasis on the psychology behind the movement. Besides the unique and relevant nature of his book, Parker was invited to speak at Grinnell given his connections with the College. Fourteen years ago, Parker received a fellowship through the Consortium for Faculty Diversity in Liberal...

    The Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights ^ | November 13, 2014 | Devin Burghart, vice-president
    Despite the valiant efforts of unions, immigrant rights and progressive groups, nativists successfully led an effort to repeal hard-fought legislation to provide driver cards to undocumented immigrants in Oregon. IREHR examines the behind-the-scenes political committees, uncovers the network of anti-immigrant and Tea Party groups in the state, and follows the money to find out how nativists were victorious in Oregon. We also look at what the nativist victory portends for national immigration reform in 2015 and beyond.Dissecting the Nativist Victory in Oregon In last Tuesday’s general election, Oregon voters rejected a bi-partisan law that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to...

    Thug As Richard Sherman pointed out after receiving criticism about his post Super Bowl interview, “It seems like [thug] is the acceptable way of calling someone the n word nowadays. Substituting the word thug doesn’t disguise the negative association with Black people.” Urban/Inner City The Black community is often referred to as urban or inner city when people are uncomfortable talking about Black people or where they live. State’s Rights During the Civil Rights Movement, politicians used racially coded appeals and words such as “state’s rights” to try and capitalize on the racial anxiety during that time. Welfare and Food...

    After years of being mesmerized by Obama's considerable  lying skills, Americans now blame the White House  for both lack of jobs and cooking-the-books Like James Carville once said, 'It's the economy, stupid'... presidential candidate Barack Obama was surely well-aware of this factoid when running in 2008, too. And JC was right, you know- exit polls in our recent midterm election confirmed it yet again. But this is what really makes one despise the Obama regime: instead of undertaking a good-faith effort to provide voters with what they obviously want (and were promised a long time ago) -jobs and prosperity- the neo-Bolshevik Obama crew knew well that their plans...
  • Court Warns Against Opening the Door to Polygamy and Beyond

    The ruling on Thursday by the 6th United States Circuit Court of Appeals warns of changing the biological definition of marriage and thus opening the door to polygamy. The Denver Post reported, Breaking ranks with other federal courts around the country, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that states have the right to set rules for marriage and that changing a definition that dates to "the earliest days of human history" is better done through the political process, not the courts. "Surely the people should receive some deference in deciding when the time is ripe to move...

    The D Brief [ at Defense One ] ^ | November 11, 2014 | Gordon Lubold and Marcus Weisgerber
    The U.S. military sent a giant C-17 cargo plane to an air show in China this week as a way to strengthen its relationship with the People’s Liberation Army there, despite fears among security and policy experts that doing so puts American technology secrets in jeopardy and also risks angering an important Asia ally. The decision to send a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III to the China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition at the Zhuhai Jinwan airport starting Tuesday is fraught for a number of reasons, defense and security officials told Defense One, noting that President Barack Obama’s arrival in the...

    While on one hand the Obama Administration has announced a plan to hand over supervision of Internet domains to the international community, they are actively looking at plans to control how we purchase and access the internet. In conjunction with it's grand launch, Vox Editor In Chief Ezra Klein debuted an exclusive interview with former Special Assistant to President Obama on Science, Technology and Innovative Policy (what a title) Susan Crawford to stress why "the internet is too important to be left to the private market." The interview came off with as much as much spontaneity as a paid commercial...

So I think that this is the tip of the iceberg. CHRIS MATTHEWS, HARDBALL: Does he ask her about all the things [Obama]'s done in the past, or is it better to hit her hard with what he thinks he says he's going to do, go to the future, go to the million person, the seven million person, we don't know how many people...

    The University of Pennsylvania which had originally posted this has now pulled down the video from their site. But this is an attempt on the part of Jonathan Gruber and company to pull their pants up after they got caught. I think it's comical that these people still believe they can say whatever they want in public, but then flip out if anyone quotes them. It also appears that the Snopes.com mafia has been called in to cast doubt upon the incident as conservatives have reported it. They call this claim a Mixture of true and false. Here's their lame...
