    THOMSON REUTERS FOUNDATION News ^ | 1/15/2019 | Nick Brown and Jonathan Stempel
    NEW YORK, Jan 15 (Reuters) - A federal judge on Tuesday invalidated the Trump administration's addition of a U.S. citizenship question to the 2020 census, the first ruling in a handful of lawsuits that claim the query will hurt immigrants. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan said Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross concealed his true motives in adding the question last March. Ross had said the question - which has not appeared on the decennial census since 1950 - was necessary to enforce federal laws protecting eligible voters. Furman's decision will almost certainly be appealed, and could wind up before...
  • The New Kakistocracy

    American Spectator ^ | January 4, 2019 | Scott McKay
    Kakistocracy is a badly underused word which needs to make a major comeback this year, as it is perfectly descriptive of the cabal of loons, clowns, demagogues, crooks and halfwits who are now in charge of the House of Representatives. The literal definition of the word is a system of government which is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens. It’s been around for a few hundred years, but overtaken by others perhaps more colorful to describe slimeball government. Kleptocracy, for example, has a real ring to it. But in surveying the crowd now in charge, who...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 12-02-18 | John Velisek
    Is there morality in government? It is expected that our politicians be moral and of good character and integrity. But given the power unlawfully and unconstitutionally usurped by our elected officials, can it be said that any member of Congress fits within a recognized set of moral parameters? After all, it is the moral nature of our legislators which must affect the life, dreams, and hopes of not only this generation but the generations to come. The amount of power which a lazy and cowardly American public has permitted our politicians to take for themselves is staggering. But what else...
  • Study: Evening Newscasts Ignored Use of Tear Gas at Border During Obama Administration

    Monday and Tuesday's ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts had zero mentions of border agents' use of tear gas during the Obama administration, according to the Media Research Center. Federal agents used tear gas on the U.S.-Mexico border dozens of times during the Obama administration, data from the Department of Homeland Security shows, despite outrage at the Trump administration from Democrats for using the substance against migrant caravan members over the weekend. According to DHS data, during the Obama administration, tear gas was used on the border 26 times in 2012, 27 times in 2013, 15 times in 2014, eight...

    Foundation for Economic Education ^ | Wednesday, April 11, 2018 | Richard M. Ebeling
    Fifty years separate us today from 1968 and the two momentous legacies of the then failed presidency of Lyndon Johnson: The declaring of war on America's supposed domestic ills in the form of the "Great Society" programs, and the aggressive military intervention in a real war in Vietnam. Both of these "wars" reflected the arrogance and hubris of the social engineer who believes that he has the power and ability to remake and direct society in his own preferred image.... A part of the Vietnam War tragedy was due to the fact that it was managed by "the best and...
  • Schumer got $50K in donations from Facebook — and his daughter got a job

    What does it take to friend a U.S. senator? If you’re Facebook, all you need is about $50,000 in donations – and a cushy job for the politician’s daughter. Facebook employees, including some at the top of its corporate pyramid, have helped fill Schumer’s campaign coffers – and he’s returned the favor by carrying water for the social media giant in Congress, according to a recent report. And Alison Schumer, the senator’s youngest of two daughters, works as a Facebook product marketing manager – which pays an average of $160,000, according to Glassdoor.com. “It sure looks hinky,” political strategist Susan...

    As if having your team lose to the lowly Buffalo Bills isn't enough, one New York Jets fan's day got even worse on Sunday after he rear-ended a car, failed a sobriety test and had an open bottle of whiskey and suspected marijuana in his car, police said. His reason for his brush with the law was simple. "I drank too much because the Jets suck," Christopher Greyshock, 57, of West Milford, told police during his sobriety test, according to a release from the Wayne Police. Officers there were called to the corner of Alps Road and Route 23 at...

    My sister and I are nurses who are disabled by life-shortening diseases. As a result, we know from first-hand experience about both the limits of modern medicine at life's end and the challenges of living with disabling medical conditions. I'm 61 and have suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for 30 years. It has invaded my lung tissue and requires me to wear an oxygen tank most of the day to breathe. I've had 18 surgeries. I plan to fight my illness for as long as I can. I enjoy life. But at the end stage of my disease, I do not want...

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez faces growing pressure from within his Socialist Party to call an early election, before scandals besetting his four-month-old minority government undermine a surge in voter support. Riding high in the polls, Sánchez aims to serve a full term to mid-2020 as he focuses on approving next year’s budget and countering renewed independence moves in the Catalonia region. But last week, his science minister was forced to deny media reports he cheated on his taxes, days after a recording emerged of the justice minister using a homophobic slur. Two other ministers have already been pushed out,...

    ROME, September 29, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis today invited Catholics worldwide to pray the Rosary every day during the month of October, “asking the Holy Mother of God and St. Michael the Archangel” to protect the Church from attacks of the devil — the “Great Accuser” — and to make her members more aware “of the sins, errors, and abuses committed in the present and in the past.” A Vatican statement issued today — on the liturgical feast of St. Michael the Archangel — seemed to be an indirect response to accusations by former U.S. Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria...

    Republican Senators Lee, Graham and Hatch were doxxed on Wikipedia on Thursday. There is nothing too low for the left. Many Republicans on the Senate Judiciary had their home addresses and phone numbers published on their Wikipedia pages Thursday. Shortly after Lindsey Graham went off on Senate Democrats for destroying Kavanaugh’s life in order to derail his confirmation, Republicans were doxxed. The victims included Republican Senators Mike Lee, Orrin Hatch of Utah and Lindsey Graham, reported the Washington Times. According to Caleb Hull, editor of the Independent Journal Review, the wife of Mr. Hatch “has been receiving calls nonstop ON...

    WASHINGTON — Over the years, Sen. Dianne Feinstein has come to view herself as a China hand. And now, amid mounting tensions between China and Taiwan, the California Democrat is increasingly asserting herself behind the scenes as a would-be peacemaker. In the process, Feinstein is playing on a rare set of personal relationships that she has nurtured with the three men now at the center of the standoff: the presidents of China, Taiwan and the United States. To each, Feinstein has been dispensing strong and unequivocal advice. "I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese," Feinstein...

    A battle royal is about to erupt, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel told Sputnik, commenting on The Daily Caller's report that ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private server was hacked. According to Ortel, the Clinton email case deserves further scrutiny despite the FBI's denial of the alleged intrusion. The FBI has rebuked Donald Trump's tweet saying that Hillary Clinton's unsecured email servers were reportedly accessed by Chinese hackers; however, the agency has not yet clarified the point whether or not it had been informed by the Intelligence Community Inspector General about foreign intrusion of Clinton's private server back in 2015....

    Kofi Annan, a soft-spoken and patrician diplomat from Ghana, who became the seventh secretary general of the United Nations, projecting himself and his organization as the world’s conscience and moral arbiter despite bloody debacles that left indelible stains on his record as a peacekeeper, died on Saturday. He was 80. His death, after a short illness, was confirmed by his family in a statement from the Kofi Annan Foundation, which is based in Switzerland. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001, he was the first black African to head the United Nations, and led the organization for two successive five-year...

    Former President George W. Bush says he’s “disturbed” by the immigration debate occurring under President Trump, where after decades, Americans are speaking out against mass immigration to the United States. During a panel discussion alongside former President Bill Clinton, Bush said the current immigration debate “doesn’t recognize” the “valuable contributions” of foreign nationals. “I’m disturbed by the debate that’s taking place because I think it undermines the goodness of America,” Bush said. “I think it doesn’t recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society. And it obscures the fact — the rhetoric does — that the system is...

    However bad you thought it was, it really is so much worse. However rotten and ungovernable you thought the federal swamp was, it really is so much worse. Indeed, it will take a hundred Donald Trumps to carve out all the cancer riddling this federal government. Behold, Rod Rosenstein, the very face of the swamp Leviathan. Geeky and bespectacled, he is the cancer that even America’s Founders could not imagine when they crafted a set of checks and balances designed to temper even the most monstrous of human nature.
