  • Stop The Year End Amnesty Rush

    On Dec. 22, there is a strong possibility that the federal government will shut down. Why? Because of overt threats from Democrats and pro-amnesty Republicans who want to hold the government hostage to enact an unconditional amnesty for millions of illegal aliens (not just DACA recipients). In other words, if the government shuts down, it will be because one side was willing to sacrifice the interests of the American people in order to reward millions of lawbreakers.
  • JFK the junkie: The Crown's unflattering portrayal of the 35th president as a jealous, [tr]

    He is perhaps the most portrayed president in American history. But fans of The Crown can expect to see a different side of John F. Kennedy when he appears in the show's second season. On the surface, Micheal C. Hall's Kennedy may seem ever the charming and inspiring leader, underneath the facade is a jealous, controlling husband and a high functioning drug addict. The Netflix drama, which focuses on the lives of the British royals, pulls no punches as it portrays JFK as a scheming conniver who is prone to sudden outbursts when he away from the public's gaze.

    The 18-year-old man killed Wednesday when a thrill ride broke apart at the Ohio State Fair had joined the Marines less than a week before the tragedy. The Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the lone person who was killed Thursday as Tyler Jarrell of Columbus. Seven others, who ranged in age from 14 to 42 years old, were injured when the Fire Ball ride malfunctioned and sent riders flying into the air. The Marine Corps said in a statement that Jarrell, 18, enlisted on July 21 and wanted to be in the infantry or serve as a combat engineer. He...

    The conventional wisdom is that Donald Trump only became a conservative the day he announced his candidacy for the presidency. But like all conventional wisdom about Trump, it’s wrong. In “Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again,” which came out in December 2011, Trump presented a detailed economic critique that any fiscal conservative would applaud. The reason “this country is an economic disaster right now,” he wrote, “is because Barack Obama doesn’t understand how wealth is created — and how the federal government can destroy it.” The private Donald Trump, on the other hand, is “the dearest, most thoughtful,...

    There was no dramatic monologue or carefully written statement needed. Trump Supporters have known all along that Sean Hannity would support Trump when Trump became GOP nominee. This was confirmed with a simple tweet “Yes, I do.” Thank you, Sean, for always being fair and for endorsing Donald J. Trump for President.

    The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) has launched a six-figure TV advertising campaign in South Carolina, in advance of the state's upcoming presidential primary. The anti-illegal immigration group's TV ad argues that the cliché call to "bring illegal immigrants out of the shadows" should be applied to Americans who have been hurt by illegal immigrants. "For years, Americans have been told that we need to bring illegal aliens out of the shadows. Here's a better idea. Bring Americans victimized by immigration out of the shadows," Dan Stein, the president of FAIR, says in the ad. The television commercial was...

    Well, this kinda turns the "liberals demand equal results" meme on its head... So, if the fat kid at the lunch table decides he needs a piece of the other kids lunches...he gets to have it? That's how "fair" is being defined here isn't it? Or maybe it's the other way around, the fat kid's lunch gets redistributed among the skinnier kids who need the fat kid's calories more than the fat kid does...But isn't that "fat shaming" the poor little thing? Is that a need now too? What a fantastic way to destroy the difference between "need" and "want"...

    In the debate over whether or not people should be forced to pay money to unions as a condition of employment, opponents of right-to-work laws often claim that workers who exercise their rights under the law are “freeloaders.” That is, that they are taking advantage of benefits from union bargaining while not paying their “fair share.” The Michigan Education Association, like most unions, supports collectively representing workers whether they are in the association or not because of the leverage it gives them at the bargaining table. Still, no private organization should have to provide benefits to people who aren’t paying...

    In September, Travis Childers, Mississippi's Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, completed a survey about immigration. Childers' stance has consistently been anti-immigration, so his opposing amnesty for "dreamers," young people whose parents brought them into this country without authorization when they were too young to object, is no surprise. #What angers Democrats is the questionnaire's source: The Federation for American Immigration Reform, known as FAIR. The questions are: 1. Will you oppose or support legislation that would grant any form of work authorization to illegal aliens? 2. Will you oppose or support legislation that would increase the overall number of...

    Published reports indicate that the state fairgrounds — once home to an iconic Michigan State Fair — may finally be sold to an investment team that includes former NBA star and Michigan native Magic Johnson. The state, however, should have sold it to the highest bidder immediately when it had a chance. In 1996, the Mackinac Center for Public Policy began recommending that the state should get out of the state fair business in its entirety. We argued in our first state budget study that fairs were nice, but "not a proper function of government in a civil society." In...

    The Missouri State Fair will force rodeo clowns to complete sensitivity training after a clown mocked President Obama in a stunt one spectator likened to a Ku Klux Klan rally. The fair’s commission also approved a lifetime ban on the offending clown. **SNIP** The fair commission has called the stunt “unacceptable” and approved a measure that would force the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association to crack down on everyone responsible. The association would also have to prove all officials and subcontractors — such as the clowns — had successfully completed sensitivity training before working future rodeos.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike. The rodeo clown won't be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday's event. The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside....
