    The New York Times ^ | October 27, 2016 | S. E. Cupp
    As has become typical in an election marked by its often unpleasant surprises, I awoke to a storm of outrage on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Newt Gingrich had told Fox’s Megyn Kelly that she was “fascinated with sex” and didn’t “care about public policy.” Mr. Gingrich unleashed this boorish attack after Ms. Kelly tried to pin him down on whether the many accusations of sexual assault against Donald J. Trump, and his own words on the matter, should disqualify him from the presidency. That Mr. Gingrich (with whom I once hosted a television show) thought the best way to deflect...

How do you think it's looking for so far on that measure," Jared? MAX: We're talking so much every week about numbers down to the NFL. You know, several years ago people said, "America's pastime? No, the NFL rules the league." Well, NFL ratings are down...

    Exposed by WikiLeaks! Motive for War with Russia! Conspirators giving talking points to Hillary ~~We may not know all the reasons the globalists want to go to war with Russia. But it is reasonable to assume there are several reasons the globalist want World War Three. One of the obvious reasons is the fact they have run out of tricks to play to keep the financial system going. They want to use war to revitalize the economies with an infusion of money. They can justify making the nations borrow more money if there is a great threat of war. Once...

    Two weeks left to go in the election and the electorate feels like a battered NFL fan. The game gets increasingly old and tiring to watch, and playing it can inflict permanent brain damage. Democrats can be counted upon to call the Republican opponent racist, whether the opponent is the priestly Mitt Romney or the Supreme Court justice who wrote the Dred Scott decision. Donald Trump, you see, is "racist" because, among other reasons, at a campaign stop he pointed to a black man and called him "my African-American." Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is not anti-Semitic, even though...

    Under normal circumstances I’m not much of an “I told you so” kind of guy. Oh, I think it, for sure. I just resist the urge to say it. But these aren’t normal circumstances. This is politics. I, and nearly every conservative, warned Obamacare would be a disaster. Now that it clearly has become a disaster, I say let it – and the Democrats responsible – rot. The Affordable Care Act, Obamacare’s ironic official name, has been a disaster right from its conception. Democrats locked Republicans out of the process completely, ignoring GOP ideas and objections. In the sale...

Democrat Hillary Clinton personally authorized illegal dirty tricks operations against Republican Donald Trump’s campaign, according to top Democrats appearing in undercover video. In the third Hillary-related video released by ACORN slayer James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas Action Fund this past Sunday (Oct. 23), Clinton is directly implicated in a scheme to use Donald Duck to mock Trump and troll his supporters at Trump campaign rallies. Among Disney cartoon characters Donald Duck was a natural choice. After all,...

    California State Route 99 is the north-south highway that cuts through the great Central Valley. And it has changed little since the mid-1960s. A half-century ago, when the state population was about 18 million -- not nearly 40 million as it is today -- the 99 used to be a high-speed, four-lane marvel. It was a crown jewel in California's cutting-edge freeway system. Not now. The 99 was recently ranked by ValuePenguin (a private consumer research organization) as the deadliest major highway in the nation. Locals who live along its 400-plus miles often go to bed after seeing lurid...

    One of the damaging aspects of our American culture has been and continues to be the introduction of the infamous little plastic trinket known as the “participation trophy.” At some point in time perhaps too many parents had been reading books from Dr. Spock, and decided the best way to enhance the self-esteem of young kids was to give them something for just being there. So all of a sudden, it was decided that at certain sporting events for our kids that no scores would be kept, that tryouts were unfair, and everyone would get a trophy. We all remember...

    Donald Trump is going to win on November 8th and the moment when this election turned from seeming defeat to certain victory will be the least expected and one of the most derisively attacked moments of his campaign. During the third debate when Trump said on being asked if he would accept the election results, "I will look at it at the time" the election was his. The uproar on both sides of the political spectrum has been an avalanche of criticism; this was Trump at his worst, the dooming moment of a quixotic and egomaniacal campaign. Or was it?...

    A few months ago, God laid it upon my heart to launch a Blue Lives Matter Celebration tour to dispel the evil myth that America's cops murder blacks. This insidious lie is spread by the Left (Hillary, the Obama administration, Democrats, Hollywood and mainstream media). In essence, they have painted a bright red target on the backs of our brave men and women in blue who lay their lives on the line for us every day. Stats confirm that blacks pose the largest threat to black lives, killing each other in consistently-growing epidemic record-breaking numbers. Ironically, stats prove that cops...

That’s why I should be excited and rooting right along with Cubs Nation as they set their sights on their first World Series title since 1908. But I just can’t get into it. Why?

    The Texas legislature will face a major “mental health” decision when they meet this January. The question will be whether to pass a replacement law for the psychologists’ licensing statute. Their major problem will be passing something -- if they pass anything at all -- that is constitutional under the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech. The issue is that the freedom of speech includes the freedom to talk and listen to whomever you’d like about psychological matters -- thoughts, feelings, behavior, perceptions -- including as a paid service. According to the old Texas law, you needed a license...

As reported by Agence France Presse, during a recent speech in Pittsburgh he postulated: “We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to. “There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don’t have any...

    In Shakespeare's play, The Tempest, the "damned witch" Sycorax is never seen and presumed dead, but her elemental force works upon the mind of Prospero throughout, suggesting a powerful but unknowable and inarticulate evil that threatens the spell-woven order of the magical island. Although absent from the stage, the witch nevertheless represents a demonizing, subversive and thought-ending influence, the same human influence that every well-conceived constitutional order of government must meet and overcome if it is to endure. But Sycorax, as it turns out, is not dead after all, for she has chosen this moment to enter into the liberal...

    America is a two-party system and after party conventions select the nominees, we have two choices and only two choices. Both nominees have demonstrated serious character flaws.

Those morally pure conservatives who believe they cannot in good conscience vote for Mr. Trump but don’t like Mrs. Clinton need to define what outcome they are seeking by voting third party or not at all.

When Britain, allied to France, declared war on Germany, Sept. 3, 1939, we stayed out until Hitler declared war on us, Dec. 11, 1941.

    Students of the Watergate era (or those old enough to have lived through it) will recall the "dirty tricks" played by Richard Nixon's henchmen, most notably Donald Segretti. Segretti, who was hired by Nixon's deputy assistant, Dwight Chapin, was tasked with smearing Democrats, including senator and 1972 presidential candidate, Edmund Muskie of Maine. Among several "tricks," Segretti composed a fake letter on Muskie's letterhead falsely alleging that Sen. Henry "Scoop" Jackson (D-WA) had fathered a child with a 17-year-old girl. In 1974, Segretti pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of distributing illegal, even forged, campaign literature and served four months...

    The United States is ranked 41st in a 2016 global index produced earlier this year by Reporters Without Borders. “The Index ranks 180 countries according to the level of freedom available to journalists,” the report stated. “It is a snapshot of the media freedom situation based on an evaluation of pluralism, independence of the media, quality of legislative framework and safety of journalists in each country. “It does not rank public policies even if governments obviously have a major impact on their country’s ranking,” the report stated. “Nor is it an indicator of the quality of journalism in each country....
  • Immigration Controversies

    Despite controversies that rage over immigration, it is hard to see how anyone could be either for or against immigrants in general. First of all, there are no immigrants in general. Both in the present and in the past, some immigrant groups have made great contributions to American society, and others have contributed mainly to the welfare rolls and the prisons. Nor is this situation unique to the United States. The same has been true of Sweden and of other countries in Europe and elsewhere. Sweden was, for a long time, one of the most ethnically homogeneous countries in...

    According to President Obama racism is “part of the DNA” of America, transmitted through the generations from its origins right to the present. This statement is perhaps the most malicious libel ever uttered by an American president against his own country. It is true that racism became one of the rationales for slavery, an institution America inherited from the British Empire before abolishing it. But slavery existed in Africa for a thousand years before a white person ever set foot there, and for 3,000 years in all societies. It is what peoples of all races and ethnicities imposed on their...

    1 class="title" id="page-title">Where Clinton and Trump Stand – on Every Major Issue Spelling out the huge policy differences between the two candidates. In poll after poll, a majority of American voters have reported that they hold an “unfavorable” opinion of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Nevertheless, there are enormous differences in the policy positions which these two candidates embrace. Following is a comprehensive overview of exactly what their positions and agendas are, with regard to the major issues confronting the United States. In some instances, background information is provided in italicized print, so as to place the candidates’ positions...
  • Turnout Time

    10/25/2016 4:39:18 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 21 replies ^ | October 25, 2016 | Thomas Sowell
    Some of us this election year don't even want to say the words "Clinton" or "Trump" -- and with good reason. However, there is one word that we should keep in mind: "Turnout." If we sit home in disgust on election day, we forfeit the right -- and the duty -- to elect a Congress that can keep either of these dangerous people from doing permanent damage to this country and to the future of this generation -- and generations yet unborn. Control of Congress has probably never mattered more than in this election, simply because of two out-of-control...

    According to the Clinton campaign website: Hillary is committed to restoring basic fairness in our tax code and ensuring that the wealthiest Americans and large corporations pay their fair share, while providing tax relief to working families… This propaganda… er Clinton campaign statement, reminded me of a talk from years ago, 1992 to be exact. A very close friend, Subodh, a naturalized American citizen born in India, was speaking with family friends at a party. The men he was talking with were professionals, doctors, engineers, accountants, and the had one thing in common. They were strong Clinton supporters. Bill Clinton...

    Donald Trump gets Valdimir Putin in a way that neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton does. Syria is Assad's, and it will remain Assad's so long as Putin (and his successors) will it to be Assad's. Putin will allow neither ISIS nor the “Syrian rebels”' (whoever and whatever they/that may be) to take Syria from Assad/Russia and Putin/Russia will never leave Syria or the Middle-East again. It is inconceivable that all the powers in the world would attempt to or succeed in militarily expelling Russia from its new position in the region, and diplomatic endeavors to do the same would...

    Donald Trump’s supporters are angry“, or “uneducated”, or “unenlightened”, or (Fill_In_The_Blank). So goes the latest round of media talking points as the election draws near. Meanwhile, don’t pay attention to that 25% increase in ObamaCare premiums you just received… look away,… look away… The corporate media narrative controllers are fully engaged. The gaslighting is extreme as the same entities utilize their microphones in a brutal attempt to create a self fulfilling prophecy. In essence, what they are really trying to save is themselves. However, the reality disconnect only solidifies their irrelevance. At this point, anyone still trying to convince us...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I have never in my life, and I really have struggled to remember, I wasn't old enough in 1964 to be aware of such things. I knew who Goldwater was. I even went to a Goldwater whistle-stop. My dad put us in the car, took us over to Southern Illinois where Goldwater was going through. I knew it was a landslide. I didn't know why. I didn't know anything about the conservative movement, knew nothing of any of that. But that aside, I have never in the rest of my life from 1964 forward, I don't think...

    Donald Trump has been urging African-Americans to vote for him for President by asking them, "What have you got to lose?" Things are so bad for blacks in many of our hollowed-out inner cities like Detroit and Chicago, it is a fair question. In fact, I have been asking myself the same question, "What have I got to lose?" Every time a typical Republican or Democrat gets elected, the economy gets worse, the country goes deeper in debt, and my individual freedoms diminish. I’m not so sure how successful Trump has been with African-Americans. Many blacks have swallowed the falsehood...

    Associated Press ^ | Oct 24, 2016 5:47 PM EDT | Steve Peoples and Jonathan Lemire
    A defiant Donald Trump blamed his campaign struggles on “phony polls” from the “disgusting” media on Monday, fighting to energize his most loyal supporters as his path to the presidency shrinks. With just 14 days until the election, the Republican nominee campaigned in battleground Florida as his team conceded publicly as well as privately that crucial Pennsylvania may be slipping away to Democrat Hillary Clinton. That would leave him only a razor-thin pathway to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House on Nov. 8. Despite continued difficulties with women and minorities, Trump refuses to soften his message...
