  • Top 30 Reasons To Vote For Hillary

    As we anxiously await the opening of the nominating convention of the Party of Theft, Treason and Racial Identity Politics, let us count the reasons to support its presumptive nominee: 1. Vote for Hillary so newly enfranchised ex-felons will have a president they can relate to – especially those who did time for grand theft. 2. Vote for Hillary if you'd like to see how high the national debt can go in the next 4 to 8 years. Obama will have managed to almost double it to an estimated $20 trillion by the time his fiscal reign of terror ends....
  • Blacklisting Conservatives Who Support Trump Smacks Of The Left's Thought Police

    In a year of truly abysmal ideas this is easily the worst. Some on the right want to compile a blacklist to punish conservatives who support Donald Trump. They would prove their loyalty to conservative principles by acting like leftist thought police. "It's time to make a list of so-called conservatives and Republicans endorsing Donald Trump," fumes Amanda Carpenter, formerly a senior speechwriter and communications consultant for both Sen. Jim DeMint and Ted Cruz. "Anyone who will defend a man condoning random acts of violence at his rallies has lost his morals; he will defend anything at all," Amanda intones....

    CNS News ^ | December 4, 2015 | Mairead McArdle
    Long-time conservative columnist and author Don Feder remarked Friday that perhaps what the United States needs is not more gun control, but "Muslim control." "Instead of targeting gun owners, try to imagine [President] Obama saying that San Bernardino shows the need for 'bi-partisan support for Muslim control'," said Feder. "After it stopped foaming at the mouth, the Committee on American Islamic Relations would have called it racist and paranoid, and not at all nice," he continued. "The suggestion would have been condemned by every Democratic presidential candidate. And the Norwegian Nobel Committee would have taken back Obama's Peace Prize." Feder...
  • Another Week In Obama's War On America

    Obama isn't at war with ISIS, the Taliban or the Muslim Brotherhood. He's at war with the Constitution, the middle class, and, ultimately, with America. For our president, the 2014 election was liberating. There's no longer a need to pretend, for the sake of his party, that he feels anything but contempt for the nation he was elected to govern. Last week was typical. On Monday, after a grand jury refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson for acting in self-defense, a mob once again rampaged in Ferguson, Missouri. After mouthing a regulation-issue call for calm, the president used the mayhem...

    In the past 80 years, only two presidents have been this successful – FDR and Ronald Reagan. And still him-so-dumb thinking dominates the right. Okay, Obama isn't a bloody genius. Neither was Stalin, Hitler, Al Capone or Meyer Lansky. But like his ideological soul-mates, Obama is cold, calculating, ruthless, and diabolically clever at advancing his agenda. He also keeps a low profile. To quote Al Pacino as the Prince of Darkness in "The Devil's Advocate" – "They never see me coming." Last December, after five years of that old Obama magic and three-quarters of a trillion in economic stimulus, the...

    A Russian lawmaker known for her outspoken support for traditional marriage and the unborn is among the officials listed in new U.S. sanctions against individuals for their alleged contribution to Russia’s unlawful grab of Ukrainian territory. Weeks ago, President Obama announced sanctions aimed at several individuals for their alleged roles in facilitating Russia’s actions. But Yelena Mizulina’s seems out of place on the list. Mizulina is chairwoman of the Russian Duma’s Committee on Family, Women and Children’s Affairs. She was also the lead sponsor of legislation banning Americans from adopting Russian orphans, fearing the children could suffer harm if adopted...

    The good news for right-to-lifers, Second Amendment supporters and defenders of marriage is that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (Andrew I) isn't planning to expel them from his realm – even though they have no place among decent New Yorkers. After a firestorm of criticism for remarks that reverberated with the sound of marching jackboots, Cuomo claimed his comments were "distorted" (that's original), that he was not referring to ordinary New Yorkers who happen to hold these vile views, but to "extreme" candidates. Clearly, that's not what he said (not that it would have been much better), but to be...

    Conservative iconoclast M. Stanton Evans once aptly remarked that in America: "We have two parties... and only two. One is the evil party, and the other is the stupid party." The evil party gave us ObamaCare, an imperial judiciary and the public morality of a Babylonian brothel. The stupid party gave us Karl Rove. On January 15, The Wall Street Journal ran a Rove commentary, the title of which proclaimed, "Independents Will Decide the 2014 Elections: Debunking the myth that turning out the base alone is enough to win."

    Like the Golden Calf the Children of Israel made while Moses was receiving the law at Sinai, Obama is making a new God for the masses to worship – big government, the Golden Calf state. "Praise Washington from whence all blessings flow. Praise it all peons here below." The president's policies are designed to maximize dependency – government as the source of all blessings. Under Obama, the food-stamp rolls increased by 33% (to 44.7 million – a record one in seven Americans). The number now receiving Social Security disability payments reached 11 million.

    Obama isn’t the president of the American people, but of his people. Never has a president had more contempt for the majority of those he governs. He's the president of aggrieved minorities (and white proponents of "racial justice"), not of Americans who think in terms of justice, not race. He's the president of feminists, not Catholics or women who marry, raise children and keep humanity going. He's the president of public-employee unions, not the taxpayers they feed on. He's the president of the global-warming, carbon-foot-print, green-jobs crowd, not motorists who are bleeding at the pump and those concerned about our...

In the meantime, Jews are being murdered, tortured, attacked, plotted against and vilified in the name of Islam. How can anyone without ideological blinders fail to see it?

Two decades later, his inflammatory rhetoric fueled a race riot that led to the murder of a rabbinical student and brought two days of terror on a religious community.

    I was born just after World War II – a conflict that claimed the lives of one out of every three Jews on earth. Growing up, I considered myself among the most fortunate of Jews. Revelations of the Holocaust’s horrors had ended anti-Semitism as a political force forever, I thought. Other than a lingering social anti-Semitism (which stereotyped Jews as clannish, crass and avaricious), and the occasional cemetery desecration and graffiti, Jew-hatred was a relic of humanity’s brutish past. What a fool I was.

    Since the Bolshevik Revolution, the clenched fist has been the left’s most visible symbol. In the ‘60s, it adorned posters and buttons and was adopted as a symbol of revolution by SDS, the black power movement, feminists and other Trotsky wannabes here and abroad. Now, it’s been resurrected by some in Occupy Wall Street. The symbolism couldn’t be more fitting. Fists are for smashing (institutions and traditions), bashing (heads) and pounding (square pegs into round holes).

But Mitt Romney isn’t taking any chances. Should he secure the nomination, his primary campaign will ensure his defeat in November – 9% unemployment, a national debt hurtling toward the abyss, socialism and surrender notwithstanding.

This year, Obama did issue a NDP proclamation only because he’s required to do so by Congress.

The hilariously misnamed Center for American Progress recently published “Fear, Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America.” The 138-page report alleges that Islamophobes - funded by “a flood of cash” (the charge is ironic, coming as it does from a Soros operation) - have manufactured conspiracy theories to spread fear and hatred of, and incite violence against, American Muslims. If the allegations are true, Islamophobes are about as successful as an Obama jobs programs. According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime...

    This is the fourth installment in a series on liberal language-manipulation – the ways in which the left’s terminology comes loaded with hidden assumptions. If you even tacitly accept these catch phrases, you’ve lost the debate before it starts. For instance, the expression “same-sex marriage” is based on the preposterous notion that “marriage” (as shaped by biology and theology) is even remotely possible between two people of the same gender. Accept the assumption, and you are reduced to fighting on the fringes. (Example: Is it good for children?) Since the left controls most of society’s idea-generators – the mass media,...

    While abortion, contraception, divorce, unmarried couples living together, children born out-of-wedlock, the culturally instilled desire for small families and the relentless drive to normalize homosexuality all have an impact, in some cases a pronounced impact, on declining birthrates, they are results not causes. However, they are connected. In the United States, the deconstruction of Judeo-Christian civilization has preceded in stages - from the introduction of oral contraceptives in 1960, to taking prayer out of our public schools in 1963, to the legalization of abortion in 1973, to no-fault divorce in the early 1970s, to the rise of cohabitation, illegitimacy and...

Citizens should be marching on Washington with pitchforks and flaming brands in hand (also a metaphor). Every city should see demonstrations to make the most raucous Tea Party rally look like Sunday night in Pierre, S.D. Instead, it’s a mental fog as usual. Hey, the unemployment rate is now (barely) below 9%! Wasn’t that a cold winter? Gee, I wonder what zany, drug-induced thing Charlie Sheen will do next?

    While making an ass of himself, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates performed an invaluable public service by creating the circumstances in which the president of the United States again exposed himself as an elitist snob who can relate to the common man only as a caricature. When Obama said the Cambridge police “acted stupidly” in arresting Gates – and lectured us on the epidemic of racial profiling – the mask of moderation slipped to reveal the arrogant, sneering elitist lurking behind it.

    Patriotism isn’t a seasonal occupation – something to be packed away with the flags and bunting until next year – not if you care about your country. Defending America is a year-round, 24/7 cause that requires knowledge, stamina and commitment. Especially in our hour of peril, with a doctrinaire leftist in the White House, who is, at the very least, indifferent to his country’s fate (that’s America’s, not Kenya’s) – think Michael Moore on Slim Fast, think George Soros without the creepy, Transylvanian accent – now more than ever before, we need to raise up a new generation of patriots....

    Last week, at age 50, Michael Jackson transferred to another dimension. He will be missed. The celebrity/side-show-attraction was the perfect metaphor for what America has become – the U.S. of Freak. ...... This is not to cast aspersions. America has become a freak show – where 15-year-olds have body-piercing, newly elected officials are assigned a personal parole officer, and celebrity is a synonym for nauseating. ......We have celebrity freaks, political freaks, freaky athletes who torture pit bulls and freaks with a short shelf-life (like the women who kill their children so they can party). ...... Toleration is hardly enough. We...

    Director Mike Judge’s new animated television series “The Goode Family” is a send-up of a clan of environmentalists who live by the words “What would Al Gore do?” Gerald and Helen Goode want nothing more than to minimize their carbon footprint. They feed their dog, Che, only veggies (much to the pet’s dismay) and Mr. Goode dutifully separates sheets of toilet paper when his wife accidentally buys two-ply. And, of course, the family drives a hybrid. On Wednesday at 9 p.m., “The Goode Family” will have its premiere on ABC and become the first animated series on the network’s prime-time...

    If the modern conservative movement has a patron saint, it’s Oscar Mayer. I recently attended a conference to address media bias. Present were representatives of several DC-based conservative groups. Some were hesitant about a counterattack on the mainstream media. Why bite the hand that bashes you? How can we expect them to work with us, if we begin by assailing them, they plaintively inquired? For a minute, I thought I’d wandered into the recovery room for male pups who’ve been clear-cut. Conservatives working with the liberal media? Swell idea! It would be like the Chief Rabbi of Berlin working with...

    On March 11, I joined a growing fraternity – conservatives who’ve been prevented from speaking on college campuses. Student storm troopers have become the final arbiters of who may speak and what views may be expressed in academia – once dedicated to free inquiry and open discussion, now as intellectually open as a Stalinist gulag. The academic archipelago? I was invited by the University of Massachusetts at Amherst Republicans and Young America’s Foundation to speak on hate crimes laws as a threat to free speech and religious freedom. That there is a national epidemic of hate crimes incited by hate...

    UMass Protests Free Speech by: Bethany Stotts, March 19, 2009 “You know I feel like I’m in a time machine...I’m back at Boston University in 1969,” said Don Feder, editor of Accuracy In Media’s Boycott the New York Times, at a recent speaking engagement. “As I said, that’s it,” he said and left the microphone. Feder’s comments were quickly followed with cheers and cat-calls by students and protestors at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. According to the Socialist Worker, approximately 150 UMass Amherst students and community members celebrated their ability to frustrate a paid guest speaker whom they argued was guilty...

    Campus Snapshots by: Malcolm A. Kline, March 19, 2009 From desecration of Christian icons to shouting down dissident viewpoints to penny ante smackdowns of candidates in student elections, America’s college campuses have become, if not fascistic, then at least places where fascism can happen. Cooper Union Crucifies Catholics When reports surface about the Koran being desecrated in a federal detention center, public outrage understandably follows. Yet most major media outlets do not deem it a story when Christian icons are violated. Similarly, few academics and cause groups deem it worth of collective indignation. The Catholic League for Religious and Civil...

    Among those with useful insights on the New York Times’s refusal to cover the Chas Freeman controversy, Don Feder was blistering: “In a sane world,” he wrote, “Freeman wouldn’t even be allowed to read National Intelligence Estimates, let alone be responsible for generating them. The Times’s efforts to low-key this disastrous appointment is typical of its attempts to run interference for the administration.” The Grey Lady is a specialty for Feder, a longtime syndicated columnist and commentator. He edits a website called Boycott the New York Times, a project of Accuracy in Media. In the wake of the Freeman controversy,...

    Yesterday’s New York Times story on Charles W. Freeman’s decision to withdraw his name from consideration for a top intelligence post was yet another instance of the paper trying to distance Obama from what could have been a disastrous personnel decision. Freeman, who was tapped to head the National Intelligence Council (which produces the National Intelligence Estimates that are vital to policy making), is not only rabidly anti-Israel, but has ties to hostile foreign powers that go way beyond questionable. The Times claimed, “When Dennis C. Blair, the director of national intelligence, announced that he would install Charles W. Freeman,...

    Both sides wanted controversy, and both sides got it. In the Cape Cod Lounge Wednesday night, conservative pundit Don Feder took the podium after University of Massachusetts Republican Club president Greg Collins introduced him to a swarm of boos. The event devolved from there. Shortly before the speech began, a large group of protesters carrying “anti-hate” signs assembled and filed into the room, where they were met at the door by UMass police. From the start, the protesters made their voices heard. “There’s absolutely no room for hate speech on this campus,” said winter 2008 graduate Natalia Tylim. Her friend,...
