    During a presented Don Lemon discussion panel Monday night, the severity of ridicule against Dr. Ben Carson was jaw-dropping and unprofessional in the extreme. Removing all pretense of substantive discussion, Don Lemon, Marc Lamont Hill and Peter Beinart began openly mocking the nomination of Dr. Carson for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

    According to Compassion International, approximately half of the population of the entire planet currently lives on $2.50 a day or less. Meanwhile, those hoarding wealth at the very top of the global pyramid are rapidly becoming a lot wealthier.

    Donald Trump is not happy Mike Pence wasn't welcomed with open arms by Broadway on Friday night. Trump demanded that the cast of Hamilton apologize to the Vice president-elect after they stopped the show to address him directly about their fears. The president-elect, who took to Twitter on Saturday morning to complain, claimed the cast had 'harassed' Pence. 'Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing,' Trump wrote. 'This should not happen!' 'The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very...

    Clintonís campaign strategy, especially when it came to appealing to white women, indicates that she and her staffers didnít quite grasp these dynamics.

His Beltway Bubble safe space is about to be punctured by those he spent over a year sneering at and his latest column reflects his rage. You would think someone with such a poor prediction track record would absorb just a bit of humility and keep his anger in check. However, Dionne never seems to learn from experience.

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBCís Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trumpís victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

    ST. LOUIS The people who spend two bucks for chili at the Courtesy Diner at Laclede Station Road canít fathom why anyone would pay Hillary Clinton $225,000 to make a speech. Nor can they understand why the U.S. Senate is taking a 17-day break for Easter after spending much of their time last week fuming over the Supreme Court vacancy. Somehow, people all over America are saying loudly and clearly this election year, Washington and its enablers Ė the media, the political pros and Wall Street Ė donít understand us. Thatís why, all over this slice of middle America, exasperated...

    While movement conservatives would like to blame the Republican establishment for the rise of Donald Trump and the attendant political problems he has created for the national Republican Party, as our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, pointed out in a recent article for Breitbart, those whom we call ďestablishment conservativesĒ bear just as much responsibility for Trumpís rise.† And there†is no†better example of how DCís snide elitist ďconservativesĒ have helped create Trump than†a recent†cover†article†in†National Review†by one Kevin†D.†Williamson.†† Mr. Williamson, who has apparently never done anything in conservative politics except pontificate for various elite journals, took to...

    Professional politician Bernie Sanders talks about a revolution. Well Trump is the revolution I heartily accept the motto, ‚ÄúThat government is best which governs least;‚ÄĚ and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which I also believe, ‚ÄúThat government is best which governs not at all;‚ÄĚ and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have.‚ÄĒHenry Thoreau (1817-1862) ‚ÄúCivil Disobedience‚ÄĚ To hear some conservative elitists tell it you would think that to be considered a true conservative you need...

    We the people have responded--to the disbelief and chagrin of the elites: "We love America, we think it is great, and you can take your global utopia and shove it where the sun don't shine!" God bless America! Trump‚Äôs no conservative an‚Äô I don‚Äôt care. Doo-da, doo-da. Trump‚Äôs no conservative an‚Äô I don‚Äôt care. Oh de doo-dah day. Gonna run all night; gonna run all day. Trump‚Äôs no conservative an‚Äô I don‚Äôt care. Votin‚Äô Trump anyway. To the tune of ‚ÄúCamptown Races/Ladies,‚ÄĚ Stephen Foster (1826-1864) (Note: also works with ‚ÄúTrump‚Äôs not a liberal‚Ķ.‚ÄĚ) Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist...

    A lot of us complain that our elite betters are ignoring our concerns, but nothing could be further from the truth. They have heard us all right. They have gotten together to come up with a solution to the many problems we have brought to their attention. And that solution is for us to shut up and keep sucking up whatever abuse they choose to heap upon us. It's all about empowering the elite to feel smug. And about sticking us normal with the check. Upset about establishment virtue signaling that requires us to take limitless numbers of Third World...

    There is a distinct ‚ÄúLet them eat cake‚ÄĚ aspect to the COP 21 climate conference to which President Obama jets off today. In the name of reducing carbon emissions, Air Force One and various support aircraft have made and will make multiple journeys across the Atlantic. Lifestyle compromises are for the little people, you see, who are expected to pay more for electricity, downsize their vehicles (if they can keep a carat all), shiver in the winter and sweat in the summer. And the agreements the world leaders are expected to reach: they are startlingly and increasingly unpopular with the...
  • Obama: Keystone would make planet ‚Äėuninhabitable‚Äô

    President Obama said Monday that the Keystone pipeline and other such fossil-fuel development projects would make Earth "uninhabitable." "We've got to lead by example, because ultimately, if we're going to prevent large parts of the Earth from becoming not only inhospitable but uninhabitable, then we're going to have to keep some fossil fuels in the ground rather than burn them," Mr. Obama told cheering grassroots supporters at a gathering in Washington.

    Not to be outdone by his partner Charlie Munger (who offended many with his comments that "gold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if you're a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939,"), Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffett - having already taken on Europe, comparing Greece to a "dog peeing on the carpet" of Europe, suggesting Germany stop "rewarding behavior you want to get rid of" - takes aim at the military. Speaking on Bloomberg TV, the octagenerian oracle of offense just unfriended every American veteran... "You want everybody educated to their potential. You want people to reach their...

    For many years now grassroots conservatives have grumbled that the Republican establishment in Washington views them with contempt. Rarely has that contempt been displayed as brazenly as it was on this weekís episode of Fox News Sunday. During the showís panel discussion, columnist George Will and Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute in particular showed how GOP bigwigs view their base. Will started the banter by suggesting that the popularity of insurgent GOP candidates was tantamount to ďprimal screamĒ psychotherapy where voters are venting their frustrations by backing political newcomers over their more traditional rivals. Brooks seconded Willís thesis...
