    President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence met with National Rifle Association officials Thursday night at the White House -- the second time in less than a week that he's had such a meeting. "Good (Great) meeting in the Oval Office tonight with the NRA!" the president tweeted. Following the meeting, NRA executive director Chris Cox tweeted, "I had a great meeting tonight with @realDonaldTrump & @VP. We all want safe schools, mental health reform and to keep guns away from dangerous people. POTUS & VPOTUS support the Second Amendment, support strong due process and don’t want gun control....

    The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, IA) ^ | Oct 23, 2016 | Editorial Staff
    We sympathize with those voters who feel locked out of a political system that seems closed-off, self interested and remote. We hear every week from readers who feel Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is their best chance to demolish a crony system that isn’t even interested in their concerns, much less committed to addressing them. These are two, distinct issues to consider, even though in the heat of the moment they might seem of a piece. First, yes: Many of us are so removed from the workings of the federal government that we don’t even know where to begin to...

    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...

    Press Trust of India ^ | May 23, 2011 | Staff Reporter
    It was the leadership skills of the rulers and not the bondage of slavery that motivated the labourers to toil hard in building the ancient Egyptian pyramids, claims a top leadership guru. Indonesia-based Arthur Carmazzi will soon come out with a book arguing how the leadership skills of the rulers of Egypt were responsible for building the giant structures regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. "Various researches have already shown that the labourers were not slaves. It was more about getting work done through leadership skills, rather than by slavery and exploitation. Even today we look...
  • Eight "New Normal" Charts That Are Insanely Abnormal--and Dangerous

    Of Two Minds ^ | 03 May 2016 | Charles Hugh Smith
    Anyone questioning the sustainability and rightness of The New Normal is immediately attacked by the mainstream-media defenders of the crumbling status quo. Not only is everything that broke in 2008 fixed, everything's going great globally, and anyone who dares question this narrative in a tin-foil hat conspiracy nut or simply an annoyingly doom-and-gloomer who recalcitrantly refuses to accept the positive glories of official statistics: low unemployment, rising valuations of stock market Unicorns, etc. But the New Normal is anything but normal; all the readings of artificial life-support and manipulation are off the charts. If the New Normal were indeed a...

    President Obama is “absolutely” the most transparent president in history, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Sunday after the White House received a letter from signed by a dozen top journalists’ groups complaining about the administration’s policies toward the media. “There are a number of steps that we've taken to give people greater insight into what's happening at the White House,” Earnest said in an interview with CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” The letter, signed by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Poynter Institute, among others, accuses the White House of "politically driven suppression of news and information about federal...

CALLER:  Yes, I had a question Rush.  On your Friday show you took a call and you said that if the GOP passes the immigration law, it's the end of the GOP, they'd be dead.  On yesterday's show you took a call from somebody and you said that Marco Rubio is a true conservative, basically we should still support him. So my question to you is, how can we support somebody who is sponsoring a bill that will kill the GOP?...

    Rush Limbaugh dings Newt Gingrich, Day Two Comments (5) By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 1/11/12 5:12 PM EST Rush Limbaugh spent a second day lacing into Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry over their hits on Mitt Romney about Bain Capital, providing extremely useful cover for the front-runner — a candidate whose praises he has not often sung during the primary: This is not conservatism. It's the polar opposite of conservatism. It's the language used to take away economic freedom. Vulture capitalism, bleeding companies dry? This is not what happens. Don't mistake me. I'm all for going after Romney or any other...

    SNIPPET: "In the last few days, Arunachalam Chrishanthakumar, a leading member of the Tamil community in Britain was convicted of supplying bomb-making parts to the Tamil Tigers – a designated terrorist organization, banned both by Britain and the EU. According to the Guardian, the police had become aware of Chrishanthakumar’s activities five years ago, but had merely warned him to “stop buying electrical components.” This is perhaps all the more remarkable when one considers that in 2002 the Tamil Tigers – although nationalist rather than Islamist – leant support to Harakat-al Mujahideen, a Pakistani militant group affiliated with al-Qaeda.

    The Washington Times ^ | 3-18-09 | Roger Chapin
    Unwittingly, our president is taking a hugely unwarranted risk by offering to negotiate with the Iranians while having publicly proclaimed that we cannot allow them to have nuclear weapons. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will necessarily have to assume that once it becomes fully apparent Iran won't voluntarily abandon its nuclear quest, the United States will launch a pre-emptive strike. And if not, Israel certainly will. We in turn would be foolhardy not to assume Iran would seek to clandestinely obtain nuclear warheads from Russia or North Korea in order to launch its own pre-emptive attacks. And given that the Russians...

    Newsweek ^ | 03/07/09 | Robert J. Samuelson
    Barack Obama is a great pretender. He constantly says he's doing things that he isn't, and he relies on his powerful rhetoric to obscure the difference. He has made "responsibility" a personal theme, and the budget's cover line is "A New Era of Responsibility." He claims that the budget begins "making the tough choices necessary to restore fiscal discipline." It doesn't. If Obama were "responsible," he would be leading a candid conversation about government's size and role. Who deserves support and why? How big can government grow before higher taxes and deficits harm long-term economic growth? Although Obama claims to...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday evening, U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) issued a warning on the Senate Floor about the dangers of Democrats’ latest attempt to stifle Free Speech through their efforts to promote diversity in communication media ownership and promote Broadcast Localism.  Though the Senate last week passed legislation (S.Amdt.573) that prohibits the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from reinstituting the fairness doctrine, it also approved an amendment by Senator Dick Durbin (R-Ill.), “encouraging and promoting diversity in communication media ownership,” which is really just a new means of censorship on the airways and will give the FCC unfettered authority to...

    02/14/08 by Antenna Wilde On Feb. 13th Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he would try to advance a revision bill (S.2248) that would prohibit the CIA from using interrogation techniques not authorized by the U.S.Army Field Manual. "Agreeing on one standard of interrogation will help restore our moral leadership in the world, and certainly that is needed," said Reid. "In the long run, torture does not help the United States. The information isn't reliable, puts our troops at risk and undermines our counterinsurgency efforts." This echoed the long held opinion of Sen.John McCain, R-Az., who was expected to be...

    Politico ^ | 11/12/07 | David P. Kuhn
    Hillary Rodham Clinton was asked this summer if she would describe herself as a “liberal.” The Democratic front-runner shied away, saying the “word” — noticeably not using the word — has taken on a connotation that “describes big government. “I prefer the word ‘progressive,’” she said. It has a “real American meaning.” Then she expanded the term to “modern progressive,” and, finally, clarified that she was a “modern American progressive.” These are heady days for Democrats. The party is favored by almost all measures in the coming presidential contest. But while Democrats are emboldened, they remain wary of the term...
