    The proof of the war being waged by the Democratic Party on people of faith or, as President Obama once put it, “less than loving Christians”, is found in the latest batch of emails released by Wikileaks. The party that rails against Islamophobia and preaches tolerance toward Muslims is revealed to have an unremitting hostility towards and disdain for Catholics, evangelicals, and any who worship a God other than government: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri and Center for American Progress fellow John Halpin mocked conservative Catholicism as an "amazing bastardization of the faith" in new...

It will likely happen again in some other urban area, perhaps after a black man is killed by a police officer, whether the shooting is justified or unjustified. Was the victim a known criminal pointing a gun at a cop? Or not? These are reasons, but reasons really don't matter now, do they? The fire is the thing. The anger is the thing. And all we're doing now is waiting for the next one. Our...

    It was not pleasant in Philadelphia. It was damn hot in a nasty, humid East Coast kind of way. Unlike the GOP convention in Cleveland, where the ACLU sued to shrink the security perimeter so protesters’ voices “could be heard,” there were no such concern in Philly about protests being heard because they were kept far away. Apparently women had been standing outside the city limits yearning for a cheesesteak but unable to get a real one because they feared there was a urinal-use requirement to enter the city because of its slogan. The Democratic National Convention was exactly that...

Snopes found plenty of Democrats wearing red, white, and blue at the convention, though the photo below doesn't convey as much. Nevertheless, such patriotic swag was present and the post has been updated to reflect the changes. Now, that's not to say that Democrats didn't foul-up last night by not mentioning ISIS. Cortney noted that the rise of the Islamic State, or any mention of the threats we face from radical Islam, was omitted. Not good, Democrats...not good. [Photo Credit: Daily Caller/Kerry Picket]Now, in terms...

The questioner brought up some statements he found distasteful by Trump. After the Congressman answered the question and we wrapped up the program, I approached the Congressman and asked if he thought any of his colleagues who are Democrats were being queried on their support for Hillary Clinton. The answer is no, because Democrats have no shame. George Will has decided to abandon the party of which he was a member...

    Political platforms are not meant to be taken as anything other than aspirational documents. They make a brief appearance at party conventions and then sit on a shelf and collect dust for four years until the next presidential election comes along. One of the few things platforms do accomplish is they put on display the party’s collective id, laying bare the base instincts of its members. Essentially, for party supporters, the political platform acts as the road map on the way to immanentizing the eschaton: “Barring opposition, following this document will get us to heaven on Earth.” On June 25,...

    Not since the 1960s’ anti-war protests has a “sit-in” been so publicly used as a tactic by protesters. And back then it was usually reserved for the administration offices on college campuses that spoiled students would take over from time to time to whine about the R.O.T.C. program, or some other policy enacted by college administrators that they wanted changed. But if one thought that the political discourse in this country couldn’t get any worse, all one has to do is look at the recent ‘sit in’ on the floor of the United States House of Representatives conducted by the...

    After finally getting the endorsement of House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Donald Trump frittered the goodwill away. Trump called a judge born in Indiana a "Mexican." Rather than apologize, Trump, at first, doubled and tripled down, until finally saying that he didn't mean that the judge's ethnicity equaled bias. That Trump fired his campaign manager shows that he's not oblivious to criticism. Reportedly, his children came to him and told him that now ex-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski must go. Trump's critics had called him immune to change, and Lewandowski's dismissal shows that they...

    Hillary Clinton's campaign is taking the reins of the Democratic National Committee, installing a new top official on Thursday to oversee the party's day-to-day operations through the general election. Brandon Davis, national political director for the Service Employees International Union, will become the general election chief of staff for the Democratic Party. His selection formalizes the coordination of the Clinton campaign and the committee, a stark contrast to Donald Trump who is currently at odds with his party. Robby Mook, the Clinton campaign manager, arrived Thursday morning at Democratic headquarters on Capitol Hill to introduce Davis to the party's staff.

    This was the year when Republicans had everything going for them, politically-speaking, in the 2016 presidential election. On every level, economically, fiscally, socially, America is in a lot worse shape under Barack Obama's debt-ridden, inept presidency. And his party's frontrunner is offering us four more years of the same. Poverty is up. Violent crime is up. The middle class is shrinking. Businesses, especially factories and retail, are in trouble. The economy is barely growing. People are hurting. The Gallup Poll this week found that only 36 percent of U.S. adults say the economy is "getting better," while 60 percent say...

Hillary Clinton will take S.C. over Bernie Sanders. In a completely predictable move, Rep. Jim Clyburn, U.S. House Minority Whip, pledged to support Clinton. He played coy for a short while, undoubtedly to work a deal before committing, but his support was inevitable. If Jim Webb had stayed long enough in the race, I would have liked to have seen him meet with S.C. Democrats and offer a reasonable alternative to...

But there's no statute of limitations on rank hypocrisy. "The Senate's constitutional duty to give a fair and timely hearing and a floor vote to the president's Supreme Court nominees has remained inviolable." That was Sen. Harry Reid in a Washington Post op-ed this week condemning any effort by the GOP to block President Obama from naming a successor to conservative stalwart Scalia. He went on to write that "the consequences of blocking...

    Hillary Clinton's asterisk-heavy victory in Iowa might have been the narrowest of wins for her, but it was arguably the worst of all possible outcomes for the Democratic Party. As of this writing, the result was a statistical tie, 49.9 percent for Clinton and 49.6 percent for Bernie Sanders. The margin of victory in the delegate count was decided by six coin tosses that "flip truthers" will forever remember as mysteriously biased toward Clinton. Clinton raced to the podium to declare victory, but the news media will continue to describe it as a tie, probably forever. Sanders' supporters won't even...

To use an old adage, "let's not throw the baby out with the bath-water". While Republicans have every right to be angry at the Republican-controlled Congress and Senate's failure to live up to the promises that put them in control of both houses of government in 2014, the alternative of Democrat control of either house of the legislature would have been much worse.

Yet, Democrats never moved beyond this fundraising ploy, which saw it backfire on them in the 2014 midterms. Now, we have a former Clinton spokesperson saying there isn't a Republican war on women, though he also reminded conservatives that there isn't a war on religion or the military; I'll let you debate the latter amongst yourselves (via Inside Sources): "I do not believe that there's any sort of Republican war on women,"...

You cannot have a peaceful society without justice an unjust society teeters on the edge of chaos, held in place only by the force deployed by the elite at its head. But thanks to the mindless quest for power by liberals, who heedlessly sacrifice justice for short term advantage, we are fundamentally transforming from a just society into something very different and very dangerous.A just society is one in which outcomes tend toward those commonly understood to...

Out with the Christianity that spawned American higher education, in with a ferocious new faith — a social-justice progressivism unrestrained by humility and consumed with righteous zeal.

They're growing. So he's now in the crosshairs. The "news" networks have spent several days manufacturing outrage over Carson, saying that if he were in a mass-shooting situation, he would want to fight back.

Specifically, the study found that supporters of GOP candidates made more grammatical errors than supporters of Democrats, who also displayed a richer vocabulary.

    07/27/2015 1:51:16 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 45 replies ^ | July 27, 2015 | Kurt Schlichter
    Republicans fear a repeat of 1992, with a squishy Bush at the head of the ticket watching helplessly as some populist businessman/novelty act hands the election to a Clinton. But Democrats should fear the far more likely repeat of 1968. Ah, the 1968 convention … just thinking of it brings a smile to the face of every normal American. Let’s start with hordes of Chicago cops kicking the psychedelia out of dirty hippies. Footage of all-American flatfoots clocking VC-flag waving pinkos with nightsticks is more erotic than a hundred “Fifty Shades” books. Just thinking about it makes me want to...
  • A Tale Of Two Deaths: How Democrats Treat Victims Differently Based On Race

    All the Democratic Party presidential candidates have come under fire from the #BlackLivesMatter crowd for not addressing the rare occurrence of black people dying at the hands of police. They appear to have learned their lesson and are in full political cover mode when it comes to the death of Sandra Bland. Bland, who was black, hanged herself, according to all the evidence, after an arrest following a traffic stop in which she became combative with police. But she has become the latest cause for the progressive left, particularly the #BlackLivesMatter movement. In spite of a coronerÂ’s report to the...
  • Cowbells, Dog Whistles and the Grand Old Party

    The Republicans are desperately trying to get hip. Pursuing the latest new thing is not in the Republican DNA, but it's necessary to win elections. They have to tap into the popular culture of social media to woo the younger generation of voters, and that requires a digital strategy. Social media technology comes more or less naturally to the Democrats. Starting with Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, the Democrats demonstrated a winning use of Facebook (back then the new rage), and it was far superior to the opposition's operation. But that's so yesterday, as Marco Rubio likes to say. Republicans...
  • Can Hillary Clinton Really Get Away With Skipping Netroots?

    National Journal ^ | 7/17/15 | S.V. DÁTE
    The Democratic front-runner was booed at this liberal gathering in 2007. And this year, a no-show has the base equally unimpressed. The annual Netroots Nation conference has attracted thousands of liberal activists, the core of the Democratic Party's base, to the 100-degree-plus desert heat. It attracted its latest hero, Elizabeth Warren. It has attracted two Democratic presidential candidates. But someone it could not attract was Hillary Clinton, the person most likely to need its attendees' help at the top of next November's ballot. "Major unforced error. Showing up is important," said Adam Green, cofounder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee,...
  • Democrats Threw Everything They Had At Scott Walker—And Still Lost

    Right to work. The elimination of wage control laws. Voter ID laws. Defunding Planned Parenthood. Expanding school choice. These are some of the No. 1 priorities for Republican legislators around the country. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has hit every item on this list, and he did so in a deep blue state; Wisconsin hasn’t gone red in a presidential election in more than 30 years, and its labor union culture may be second only to that of the automotive capital in neighboring Michigan. Walker’s uncompromising conservative governance made him Democrats' No. 1 target at both the state and national level,...
  • 'Feel The Bern': Is This Sanders Surge Really Happening?

    06/26/2015 3:37:40 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | June 26, 2015 | Matt Vespa
    Almost everyone reported on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tossing his hat into the 2016 ring given that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) decided to steer a course clear of the White House, but many wrote him off. He’s unable to clinch the nomination; Clinton has the money, the organization, the endorsements, and the momentum that is unstoppable. Yet, there seems to be a Bernie surge happening–and it’s in a way that has the Clinton camp a bit anxious. We’re not saying that Sanders will win the nomination, but he may be able to mount an effective challenge, even though–at least by self-identification–there aren’t enough...

    RUSH: I've got people sending me e-mails: "Hey, Rush, look at this, look at this." You know what it is? It's little campaign buttons and stickers and stuff with Hillary Clinton posing with the Confederate flag, and Bill Clinton posing with the Confederate flag, smiling and happy, all from the 1990s. It isn't gonna matter a hill of beans. Until you see all that at Yahoo News, ABC, CBS, NBC, it isn't gonna matter. And even then it wouldn't matter because the Clintons are Democrats and get the benefit of the doubt on caring about people and having good intentions....
  • Why Are These (Any) Dems Running?

    I have nothing against vetting prospective Republican candidates running for President in 2016. Still, I find myself agreeing more with the sentiments of those commentators who say: “The more the merrier.” Nor do I believe that the Republican Party presidential prospectus has not turned into a clown car. Granted, I have publicly endorsed Scott Walker, already a compelling front runner without announcing his candidacy. He can ride a hog and tie up the pork in Wisconsin without blinking, who defeated public sector unions, expanded school choice, cut taxes, enacted Voter ID, passed right-to-work, and is boning up on foreign policy. Yet,...
  • Will the Real Democratic Challengers Please Stand Up?

    06/05/2015 5:30:29 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | June 5, 2015 | S.E Cupp
    As Hillary Clinton's poll numbers fall -- most strikingly among Democrats -- one has to wonder where the serious Democratic challengers are. Because the truth is, anyone telling you that Lincoln Chafee, Bernie Sanders or Martin O'Malley is real "competition" for Hillary is trying to sell you something. And that something is the idea that Clinton's campaign is not a fait accompli. To buy this, you must ignore the recent news that a Democratic National Committee finance chairman violated his own party rules requiring neutrality in presidential primaries to fundraise for Hillary. Also ignore that at the DNC's winter...
  • FCC Has Shocker for GOP That Could Guarantee Big Democrat Win in '16

    It's not a major news story...yet. But trust me, the Democrats and the Federal Communications Commission that they control are ready to guarantee a defeat for Republicans in close U.S. Senate races in 2016 and in the battle for the White House. This is not columnist hype. It's the real thing, and it's moving like a freight train. We all know that people hate getting those automated phone calls from politicians, creditors and vacation time-share hucksters. And rightly so. The FCC, headed by Tom Wheeler, has known that for years. But it seems they waited until now to act. After...
