  • How many little people jobs are being affected by the NFL's social stunt?

    Lost in all this talk about the league losing 10% viewership is the effect on the hot dog vendor and his ability to earn a living because a bunch of overpaid social justice warriors need to make a point about a lie and complete fabrication of statistics by mere innuendo. So, doing a quick back of napkin calculation of what a loss of $200 million means, in terms of economics of hourly employees to revenue, I concluded 500 people would necessarily need to have their hours drastically reduced or would be laid off. That is a staggering amount of people...
  • Paul Ryan Advised Republicans To Run From Trump Prior To Election Day, Says Gohmert

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan advised Republicans to run away from candidate Donald Trump before the election in order to save themselves and hold a future-President Hillary Clinton accountable, Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas revealed in an exclusive video interview with The Daily Caller New Foundation. “Are you crazy? We haven’t held anyone accountable. You haven’t even let us hold the IRS commissioner accountable [for using government power to harm President Obama’s political adversaries],” an astonished Gohmert said to the speaker on a call. Gohmert told TheDCNF he speaks so courageously because he wants the party to succeed...

    Just saw Madison Gesiotto on Neil Cavuto discussing a day without imigrant. She was opposed by a another woman, who had synthetic and contrived sound bites regarding citizen, those waiting for years on their papers and conflating illegal immigration with legal citizens, who pay their taxes, come to America to improve the lives of their families. Of course she used obfuscation to describe immigration, refusing to acknowledge the difference between Lawful and Legal Immigration. Stupidly, she told Madison "Your family were immigrants" As Madison pointed out, her family came here as legal immigrants and worked hard to become citizens, who...
  • Morgan criticizes Kobach for working with Nugent on Texas bill to kill feral pigs from helicopters

    Republican secretary of state candidate Scott Morgan on Thursday took aim at incumbent Kris Kobach for helping rocker and gun rights activist Ted Nugent and Texas officials pass a law making it easier to hunt feral pigs from helicopters. "The self-appointed Guardian of State Sovereignty needs to stop shooting pigs from helicopters in Texas with Ted Nugent and start focusing on his job in Kansas," said Morgan, of Lawrence, who will face Kobach in the Aug. 5 Republican Party primary. Morgan and other critics of Kobach say he spends too much time advocating around the country for anti-illegal immigration laws...

    Daily Mail ^ | 6/12/11 | Staff
    Michelle Obama cannot seem to make her mind up if she likes expensive designers or cheap chains. Also known for wearing H&M and Target, the First Lady boarded a helicopter on Friday sporting a 'Impressionist Print Draped Dress' from Gap, retailing at $29.99. Her choice of cheaper chain clothing during times of recession makes endears her to a cash-strapped public. Not one to stick to a genre, she is also often spotted in very expensive attire from designers such as Alexander McQueen and Tracy Feith. Leaving the White House bound for presidential retreat Camp David, the style-queen wore the

    Fiscal Policy: Anyone who believes high tax rates bring prosperity need only look at New York. Soak-the-rich rates there contribute to a wealth and talent drain the state can't afford. To help their state weather the recession, New York lawmakers in 2009 adopted a surcharge on personal income taxes for those making more than $200,000. Called a "millionaire's tax" even though 76% of those who pay it are not millionaires, the levy lifted the top rate by 31%. It was intended to be temporary. But according to a report by the Partnership for New York City, a group of 200...

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (right) alongside Oil and Energy Minister ... Venezuela's legislature has voted to nationalize 11 oil rigs owned by the US firm Helmerich & Payne. The rigs, located in Monagas, Anzoategui and Zulia states, will be taken over by state oil giant Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), the official news agency AVN said. PDVSA had asked the legislature controlled by supporters of leftist President Hugo Chavez to take over the rigs after the US firm declined to negotiate a new service contract, unlike 32 other foreign firms.

    The American Thinker ^ | Thursday, September 23, 2009, 7:30 PM | Jack Cashill
    In his new book, "Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage," Best-selling celebrity journalist, Christopher Andersen, has blown a huge hole in the Obama genius myth without intending to do so. Relying on inside sources, quite possibly Michelle Obama herself, Andersen describes how Dreams came to be published -- just as I had envisioned it in my articles on the authorship of Dreams.  With the deadline pressing, Michelle recommended that Barack seek advice from "his friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers." To flesh out his family history, Obama had taped interviews with various family members. Andersen writes, "These...

    Call it the third green wave. It is a much smaller migration than its predecessors - the historic westward flow that gave Boston its Irish identity, and then, in recent years, the return home of thousands of Irish emigrants seeking to ride the Celtic Tiger, the roaring Irish economy. But now, with Ireland deep in recession, far deeper even than ours, thousands of its residents are again heading abroad; nearly twice as many people left Ireland in 2008 as four years earlier. And some of them are heading to the United States for the second time

    Given my line of work, from time to time, I get angry e-mails from people affiliated with hate and/or terror-related groups – groups that I have worked hard to expose and hopefully, one day, help to shut down. Recently, I was sent a handful of e-mails from the President of the campus chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS on Campus) at John Jay College in New York City. The specifics contained within them were a valuable confirmation of things previously suspected to be true. In April of 2003, I received a series of e-mails from an individual identifying himself...

    We encourage our readers to circulate the following in its entirety. Instead of speaking for (or about) the Obamas, we will let them and their church speak for themselves. Earlier in my college career, there was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the Black community I was somehow obligated to this community and would use all of my present and future resources to benefit this community first and foremost. My experiences at Princeton have made me more aware of my “Blackness” than ever before. Michelle LaVaughn Robinson [Obama], “Princeton Educated Blacks and the Black Community,” page...

    Obama's Black Identity Politics is Consistent With Jeremiah Wright’s Hate SpeechIf anyone believes that Barack Obama “just found out” about Jeremiah Wright’s vicious anti-American hate speech, we have a bridge in Brooklyn we would like to sell them. As shown by Obama’s own book Dreams From My Father, Obama’s deep involvement in Black identity politics–replace that with “White identity politics” to envision sheets, hoods, and burning crosses–is entirely consistent with his widespread involvement and association with racists, anti-Semites, and Catholic-haters. The bottom line is that Obama is not one of us and, by “us,” we mean mainstream America. To begin...

    Go, Hillary! That’s my battle cry. Hillary Clinton needs to hit our Texas primary hard on March 4 — or kiss her campaign for the presidency goodbye. Barack Obama has taken the delegate lead, with some big states still ahead for forthcoming primaries. At this point, the polling experts — who are starting to look like polling amateurs — expect Hillary to take Texas. If so, she will follow other women who have gained crucial political momentum in Texas, such as Ann Richards in recent times and Miriam “Ma” Ferguson in the 1920s. And on the GOP side, the state...

This time I flew from Singapore to Kuwait, where I toured military facilities critical to maintaining war-fighting equipment, then to Qatar to continue exploration of the same, and finally back to Kuwait to enter Iraq. I plan to spend the entirety of 2007 with our troops at war, until sickness, wounds or worse send me home, or the military tires of my presence and catapults me over the wire. Having spent most of 2005 in Iraq, I...

    MANY AMERICANS have been wondering why so many Iraqis are willing to fight for militias and terrorist groups but not for the American-backed government. Look at it from their perspective. Would you stake your life on a regime whose existence depends on Washington's continuing support? Given our long, shameful record of leaving allies in the lurch, that has never seemed to be a smart bet. We have been betraying friends since our first overseas conflict, against the Barbary pirates who captured ships off the African coast and enslaved their crews... Something similar could have been said about U.S. conduct after...
