  • Crosscurrents on a Democratic Election Day

    11/23/2018 10:01:53 AM PST · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | November 23, 2018 | Michael Barone
    Some random observations on the 2018 offyear elections, for Thanksgiving weekend pondering: 1. We hear constantly, and in some respects accurately, that Americans are deeply divided politically. Another way to look at it: The differences between north and south, visible for two or three centuries, are vanishing. As Real Clear Politics analyst Sean Trende tweeted, "Southern suburbs are starting to vote like northern suburbs, northern rurals/small towns starting to vote like Southern rurals/small towns." Republicans, who lost suburban House seats on the coasts and in the Midwest in the 1990s, lost them this year in metro Houston, Dallas and Atlanta....
  • Gershon's 'Medicare for All' Plan Steals More Than Just Your Pocketbook

    At least a mugger only demands your money or your life. Perry Gershon wants to take both.In his bid to win New York's 1st Congressional District this November, Gershon has made a big deal out of healthcare reform, calling for Uncle Sam to take control of all medical care in our country. “We need Medicare for All,” the big-government Democrat Gershon tweeted in June. “Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Single payer healthcare is the only true and cost-effective universal coverage. Let’s fix the ACA and then implement Medicare for All.”But how would Gershon’s fanciful plan work out in reality? Healthcare, after...
  • Explaining the Left, Part IV: Leftist Contempt for Middle-Class Values

    When I was in graduate school, I learned a lot about the left. One lesson was that while most liberals and conservatives abide by society's rules of order and decency, most leftists do not feel bound to live by these same rules. I watched the way leftist Vietnam War protesters treated fellow students and professors. I watched left-wing students make "nonnegotiable demands" of college administrations. I saw the Black Panthers engage in violence including torture and murder and be financially rewarded by leftists. Today, we watch leftist mobs scream profanities at professors and deans, and shut down conservative...

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for United States president.Hoge called the NRA "a fear-mongering, bully organization" in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine."They are the worst things about America: a rich organization, led by...

    FRANKFORT, KY (SPECTRUM NEWS) After an hours long closed meeting Tuesday, the Kentucky Board of Elections announced how they would move on after a senior staffer made seriously allegations of harassment and misuse of power by Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. Monday, the Executive Director of the State Board of Elections, Jared Dearing, sent a letter to board members, making several complaints about Grimes. In the letter, Dearing wrote Grimes was weakening the system of checks and balances. He sad Grimes accessed the voter registration database to check backgrounds of potential hires and for other reasons. Grimes admits...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) announced Wednesday that she has cancelled a planned meeting with President Trumps Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in light of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohens guilty plea and testimony.In a scathing statement during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing and in a tweet Wednesday morning, Sen. Hirono called President Trump an unindicted co-conspirator.This president who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal matter does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee, purposefully selected to protect, as we say in Hawaii, the Presidents okole, she said, employing a crass, colloquial Hawaiian term.These are not...

    One wonders if Sen. Dick Durbin ever objected to the phrase "chain of custody" in judicial proceedings as evidence of racism in a justice system said to be unfair to blacks. Or maybe he thought "chain smoking" is a phrase coined by Klansmen watching slaves harvest tobacco. Has he ever participated in a chain letter? The phrase "chain migration" is what Durbin and his fellow liberals like to call a racist "dog whistle," but this dog won't hunt. Democrats like Durbin like to view everything through race-colored glasses, and the phrase "chain migration" is no exception, with Durbin claiming President...

    Speaking live on the Fox News Channel Tuesday night after Roy Moore was declared the loser in the special U.S. Senate election in Alabama, Richard Fowler said this: Roy Moore is guilty of saying things like LGBT people should be put to death.' The programs host, Shannon Bream, seemed taken aback by the assertion, which was clearly a lie classic fake news, or in this case, fake commentary. Fox News @ Night Tuesday December 12 2017 (Video) Fowler, an up and coming leftist talking head, is a paid contributor to Fox News and he appears frequently on a variety...

    So we have a candidate for a position in Washington D.C. accused of stalking and harassing young women. You’re probably thinking we’re off on yet another story about Roy Moore, right? Not this time. The latest politician to earn such a reputation is from considerably further out west. In New Mexico, David Alcon is running for Congress, hoping to represent the Second District. His campaign hit a bit of a snag recently, however, when he was arrested for stalking a woman and engaging in threatening, sexually aggressive behavior. Oh, and just in case you were wondering… he’s a Democrat. (Free...

    The man responsible for attacking Sen. Rand Paul Friday afternoon was an avowed liberal who frequently fought with his neighbors about politics, according to a report Sunday from The Washington Post. [Snip] [Rene] Boucher is a divorced socialist who is "pretty much the opposite of Rand Paul in every way," Jim Bullington, a former member of the city commission who knows both men well, told reporters Sunday. A Facebook account Boucher maintained before the attack contains numerous anti-Republican postings. Boucher wrote "May Robert Mueller fry Trump's gonads" in a May post referencing the former FBI directors investigation into possible collusion...

    After every mass shooting, the left always invites us to join them in their insanity to participate in yet another circular argument about gun control.Its not because they care.If they really cared, they would think before they speak after tragedies.Shortly after the Las Vegas shooting, now-fired CBS top legal executive, Hayley Geftman-Gold said, Im actually not even sympathetic bc [sp] country music fans often are Republican gun toters.Atheist Richard Dawkins tweeted his sentiments, obviously mocking southerners: Durn tootin, great shootin.

    If there's one person Rep. Maxine Waters shouldn't bring up so as to avoid unfavorable comparisons, it's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, who is also one of the nation's most distinguished neurosurgeons. Well, she has. Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) went after Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson at a town hall on Saturday. At the town hall in Gardena, Calif., Waters said that Carson should go back to his former profession of being a surgeon, the Los Angeles Times reports. Waters also told the crowd that the next time Carson went before the...

    It's been just 48 hours since Republican lawmakers and their staff members were gunned down on a field in Alexandria by a Bernie Sanders volunteer while practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game. Republican Whip Steve Scalise is still in critical condition at the hospital and has undergone a number of surgeries after being shot in the pelvis. In reaction to the attack, Nebraska Democrat Chelsey Gentry-Tipton said it was funny to watch Republicans who were on the field get emotional when recalling what happened during media interviews. After calls for a new civility, unity and her resignation, Gentry-Tipton is doubling...

    The Democrats seem to not want to relent on the desire to see President Trumps tax returns. They will tell you it is all about good government or that it is tradition. We need open government. They think Mr. Trump is hiding something. I am advising him now he should just come out and say he isnt turning them over deal with it. Let me explain why. The biggest reason is that his tax returns are so complex that very few people could ever understand them. They are most likely littered with hundreds of entities that flow through to...

We do not have time for typical politics because this is the time to paint Floridas future in sharp lines and bold colors, Graham said, making her announcement in a Miami Gardens park next to Miami Carol City Senior High School.

    Expensed $13,476 in petty cash, hotels, travel after electoral defeatThe campaign committee of former Rep. Corrine Brown (D., Fla.), who is currently on trial for corruption charges, spent thousands on hotels and small travel expenses after Brown was defeated in the Democratic primary last year.Brown, who lost to former Florida State Sen. Al Lawson in the August 2016 primary, spent $11,278 on "lodging" at a Marriot Hotel in Bethesda, Maryland in late September 2016, nearly one month after the election.In addition to the hotel expenditures, the campaign disclosed three "petty cash" transactions totaling more than $2,000 during the two-week span...

    In the fallout of President Donald J. Trumps historic victory, the Democratic Party is in a state of panic. They suffered record-breaking defeats across the country, and are still trying to clean up the mess caused by Hillary Clinton, a candidate who explored uncharted depths of political corruption. One of the Democrats biggest problems is how their grassroots base was ignored by elites who used a complicated process of Superdelegates to steal the primary election from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Now, theres new leadership at the Democratic National Committee. Chairman Tom Perez on a Unity Tour has committed himself to...
  • Chuck Schumer's Attacks on Neil Gorsuch Are Un-American

    If Democrats want to filibuster President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, they're entitled to do it. In fact, Democrats are free to try and stop federal appeals court Judge Neil Gorsuch's confirmation for any reason they desire, whether ideological or personal, or even no particular reason at all. There is nothing in the Constitution that compels senators to vote on judicial nominees the president forwards. Make no mistake, though: Sen. Chuck Schumer now opposes a potential SCOTUS justice because he promises to be impartial when upholding the Constitution. Since Gorsuch's confirmation hearing starts Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary...

    When Pope Francis visited America in 2015, one topic that seemed mandatory to address was the old scandal over priests found guilty of sexually abusing children. Despite more than a decade of reforms and a more liberal-pleasing pontiff, some activists never stopped bashing the Catholic hierarchy. The group Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, disparaged Francis' meeting with victims as an empty public relations gesture, a dodge. On CNN, SNAP spokesman Manny Vega exclaimed: "If he really ... wants to put an end to this, he has to be completely transparent, allow the names to go unredacted,...
  • Narratives Over Facts

    Much of the media and Democratic Party obsess about narratives. It is not enough for reporters to report facts, data, and events. They must all be shaped into story-telling elements to tell a larger story or narrative. This approach has become common among both the press and politicians. The Obama Administration, in particular, has become obsessed with narratives at the expense of our national security. Saadiq Long is one data point in the quest for narratives. In 2013, liberal journalists wove the facts of Saadiq Long into the greater narrative that the United States was still an oppressive regime under...
