    The Washington Post ^ | September 24, 2016 | David Weigel
    Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson has pushed back on a rumor that his running mate will quit to prevent a Republican victory in November, telling an audience in Texas that it was best described by an unprintable word. "Occasionally you get a question that is just so out of left field that I answered it with: Bull----," Johnson said at the annual Texas Tribune Festival. Friends of William Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts whose ticket has given boosts in fundraising and gravitas, have said for days that Donald Trump's recovery in the polls had given him second thoughts about...

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 22, 2016 | Rachel Bovard
    After voting to proceed to a bill that didn’t exist earlier this week, the Senate has finally produced text of the continuing resolution, a short-term government spending bill. The bill, written behind closed doors by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was brought to the floor late Thursday afternoon, and for the majority of Senate Republicans, represented their first opportunity to see the text. According to McConnell, senators will have four days (two of them on a weekend) to review the bill before having to cast their votes next week. As far as conservative priorities go, the bill is a failure....

    An Army National Guard brigadier general assigned to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a major general in charge of a Kansas-based infantry division have been recently relieved of their duties, according to a report in USA Today and an Army statement released Friday. Brig. Gen. Michael Bobeck is accused of having an extramarital affair — a violation of military law if proven true — and is being investigated, according to the USA Today report. Bobeck has been reassigned from his post on the Joint Chiefs pending the results of the investigation. The report also indicated that Bobeck had a...

    The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted on Friday in a case involving removal of names from voter registration rolls. The case was based on a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio and other entities arguing that Husted was too aggressive in purging voter rolls. Husted's office has removed 465,000 deceased voters and 1.3 million duplicate registrations from Ohio's voter rolls in recent years. His office also has a program to cancel the registrations of those who do not update their registrations or vote over six years, including three...

About his “sterling assets,” his “idealism,” his “moral clarity,” his “calm intellect,” his “personal and polyphonous” address to the United Nations General Assembly, his “valedictory” speech in defense of the “liberal international order at a time when it’s under severe stress around the world.”For a stress-induced headache you take an aspirin. What’s happening in the world today requires something much stronger. A farcical ceasefire in Syria has Americans blowing up Assad loyalists...

    <p>The shock for Democrats if Clinton loses will likely be more severe than for Republicans if Trump loses. Two decades ago, self-described moderates, and even conservatives, voted in Democratic primaries. Not so these days. The slump in Democratic primary and caucus turnout, from 38 million in 2008 to 31 million in 2016, was due to a sharp decline in turnout by self-described moderates.</p>

The ongoing protests in Charlotte over the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott has some outraged observers wondering if “white lives matter.” Influential finance blogger Zero Hedge, among others, have drawn attention to a video posted on social media that appears to show Charlotte protestors “beating, dragging, stripping, and laughing at an innocent white man.” Many were also outraged by witness reports that Charlotte protesters had tried to throw a photographer into a burning fire. Other videos emerged on social media showing protesters attacking white bystanders. Users tweeted them out using the hashtag #WhiteLivesMatter.

    Black men who try to avoid an encounter with Boston police by fleeing may have a legitimate reason to do so — and should not be deemed suspicious — according to a ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Warren was arrested on Dec. 18, 2011, by police who were investigating a break-in in Roxbury. Police had been given a description of the suspects as three black men — one wearing a “red hoodie,” one wearing a “black hoodie” and the other wearing “dark clothing.” An officer later spotted Warren and another man (both wearing dark clothing) walking near a...

At a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing about the proposed internet giveaway at the end of the month, Sen.

The only question now is whether the FBI "missed" this evidence because of gross...

The Democratic nominee's remarks came as she explained she has a plan to combat both terrorism as well as the broader issue of gun violence in the U.S. Clinton was prompted by the question: "What would you do to address terrorism?"

There is no text. There is no agreement between Democrats and Republicans on what the bill will fund—Planned Parenthood, the Export-Import Bank, control of the internet—all of it remains a mystery. Yet the Senate voted 89-7 to proceed to this nonexistent bill. The Senate operates under complex parliamentary rules that require a series of votes in order to “proceed to” or “get onto” a bill.

During a House Homeland Security Committee hearing titled "Stopping the next attack: How to keep our city streets from becoming the battleground," Rep. Brian Higgins said American streets already are a battleground where people are 3,000 times more likely to be killed by an American with a gun than by a terrorist. "You can't with any credibility hold a hearing with the topic 'stopping the next attack, how to keep our cities from becoming battlegrounds,' without fundamentally addressing...

    President Barack Obama affirmed this week that the Declaration of Independence recognizes that “individual human beings” have “God-given rights.” Yet, he insisted this was a “radical idea” at the time of the founding. […] “So I recognize a traditional society may value unity and cohesion more than a diverse country like my own,” he said, “which was founded upon what, at the time, was a radical idea — the idea of the liberty of individual human beings endowed with certain God-given rights.” What would Alexander Hamilton say to that? Or Thomas Jefferson? Or Cicero? Writing in February 1775, a young...

    AND NOW... amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke... it is time for... that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-The-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him — do NOT doubt him — with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio...

    The neighbors gathered in Hurricane Sandy’s drizzly aftermath, surveying the damage: tree limbs crushing the roof of a car, telephone poles snapped in half, power lines strewn across the street. It was, for all the unpleasant circumstances, a nice communal moment. It made me think, oddly enough, about what it is that bothers me about early voting.More precisely, it reminded me about what I like about Election Day — the neighborly lines at the local elementary school, the sense of common purpose, the we’re-all-in-this-together ritual of the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. I like wearing my corny...

    California is a Democratic bastion in the United States, but the party's presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has some voters up in arms over her push to tighten gun control. [Snip] A Pew Research study found that 40 percent of gun owners across the United States are Republican, twice the number of Democrats. But in California, the share of gun-toting Democrats is larger. "We believe there's an immense number of Democrats among California gun owners," said Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, noting there were no official statistics on that. As for Clinton, he warned that "people are...

    Blaze owner Glenn Beck has driven his media company ‘into the ground due to his own erratic behavior, excessive spending, and mismanagement,’ his former top executive alleges. The abrupt end of a beautiful friendship—nearly two decades of mutual admiration between struggling media entrepreneur Glenn Beck and his fired top executive, Christopher Balfe—has become a legal battle of ugly accusations that only promise to get uglier. “Beck has driven [Mercury Radio Arts, Beck’s wholly owned private umbrella company] into the ground due to his own erratic behavior, excessive spending, and mismanagement,” Balfe alleges in a countersuit filed Monday afternoon in Dallas...

    "Look, I fought his son very hard. It was a very tough battle — Jeb, and Jeb lost. He was expected to win," Trump told Time Warner News prior to a rally in North Carolina Wednesday. "He was expected to be the nominee and he lost." "We're leading all over, and we seem to be doing very well. But I fought him and it was a very nasty contest. It was very nasty and I can understand that," Trump said. "Frankly, if I were him, maybe I'd go that direction too. Look, Jeb Bush signed a pledge. He didn't honor...

    In a recent editorial (“NRA’s wailing doesn’t drown out facts on background checks,” Sept. 4-10 edition), The Sunday claims the Question 1 gun-control ballot initiative is an “attempt at reasonable gun control” and portrays opponents as “fear-mongering.” But in the same breath, The Sunday acknowledges expanded background checks would will not solve gun violence and adds, “it is a step in the right direction.” That means that if the state were to adopt Question 1, which would criminalize virtually all private firearms transfers, gun-control supporters would immediately be calling for even more gun-control laws. That is exactly how it has...

    WASHINGTON -- The Senate minority whip told reporters on Capitol Hill today that the Minnesota mall stabbings and the New York/New Jersey bombings were "sad reminders that this Congress has done nothing -- nothing to prevent dangerous people from acquiring guns and explosives to carry out future attacks on Americans." Outside of a closed policy luncheon, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Republicans "have seen multiple opportunities come and go to bring forward and pass bipartisan legislation to prevent terrorists from buying firearms and explosives, closing the so-called terror gap loophole." "All of which have been defeated by the Republican majority....

    (NOTE: This is an relatively old clip, but is still used in schools across America to train teachers in the art of school indoctrination. Please click the link to see the video. ) In this video, from a movie used to train teachers to be "sensitive to LGBT issues", teachers are instructed to "educate" students to support the LGBT agenda. It's only 45 seconds. Please watch this video to see an astonishing level of elitism and disregard for parents among the individuals to whom many readers entrust their children during most weekdays.
