    In addition to protesting the National Anthem, the National Football League is now funding left-wing advocacy groups, including Dream Corps, a George Soros organization, led by a former Obama advisor, Van Jones. Jones states that he is a communist and two of the goals of Dream Corps is to advocate for the “Clean Power Plan” and open borders. The NFL recently agreed to pay $73 million over seven years to various groups that the NFL Players Coalition supports. The coalition was created in 2016 as a way to “respond to perceived institutional bias among law enforcement agencies.” Its members are...
  • Conservatives: Worried about losing the internet? I have an idea; record an audiobook

    It is almost certain that with giving the internet to "the world", that people with voices who say certain things run the risk of being silenced. One possible solution: You should record an audiobook. Here's why. As an example, one audiobook that I recorded was The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution, which highlights the black patriots that fought side by side against the British for American Independence and liberty. I completed that entire book on Valentines Day of this year, the day believed by some to be Frederick Douglass' birthday. Why is this book important? Have you ever run...

  • U.S. To Scale Back Its Role In Internet Governance

    Even though the Internet has long been an international community, the United States has always been at its center. However, that all may be about to change as the U.S. Department of Commerce scales back its role in Internet governance. The transition is a gradual one, but by the end of the year, the DOC is expected to give up its oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to the international community. The concept of “Internet governance” may seem like a bizarre one since it often seems like the Wild West out there. The most tangible...
  • Obama: Letting People Keep Their Own Money Is a "Giveaway" from the Government

    On Wednesday, President Obama argued that not raising taxes on certain households amounts to a "giveaway" from the government. On Thursday, White House spokesman Jay Carney repeated and defended the term "giveaway." Chalk it up as another example of a "You didn't build that" worldview. During the Thursday press briefing, ABC News senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper asked Carney why the White House uses the term "giveaway": Jake Tapper: You used the word "giveaway", and President Obama, in his statement yesterday, used the word "giveaway," referring to the extension of the lower Bush tax cut rates for I guess...

    Military chiefs are planning to give armoured vehicles worth an estimated £1billion to Afghan forces when it withdraws from Afghanistan in two years time. Officials believe that more than half of the UK’s protected vehicles in the country will be left behind with the Afghan National Army and security forces rather than transported back to Britain. Senior military sources have revealed that an initial review has identified that more than 1,200 protected trucks and personnel carriers are likely to be passed over to the Afghans in 2014.

    Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) told the The New York Times that he would "respond to 100% of the territorial demands of the Palestinians" if elected Prime Minister. “I intend to replace Netanyahu,” Mr. Mofaz, 63, said. “I will not join his government.” Mofaz said that he believed Israel should keep the main settlement blocs, but that he would give the Palestinian Authority as much land from sovereign Israeli ground as he kept from Judea and Samaria. He added that he believes it is possible to reach an agreement on the borders and security within one year. When asked about...

    IBD Editorials ^ | JUly 14, 2011 | PETER FERRERA
    Our nation's entitlement programs, from Social Security to Medicare to ObamaCare to dozens of welfare programs such as Medicaid, are all based on simple, late-19th century tax and redistribution ideas. Politically, we will never be able to solve the entitlement crisis by simply trying to cut people's benefits. As I discuss in my new book, "America's Ticking Bankruptcy Bomb," the only politically viable solution is fundamental, structural reform that would modernize the systems to rely instead on capital, labor and insurance markets, with transformed incentives that would lead them to contribute to economic growth rather than suppress it. Through such...

    Bob Barker and Rod Roddy couldn't have planned it better themselves. In the wake of Armando Galarraga's(notes) perfect-game-that-wasn't, Chevrolet and the Detroit Tigers rightly decided that the jilted pitcher deserved a grand gift anyway. So a new Corvette was driven behind home plate prior to Thursday's game with the Cleveland Indians and presented to the man who has been nothing but class in the face of Wednesday's disappointing and unjust finish.

    COPENHAGEN -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday proposed that major economies including the U.S. come up with $100 billion a year over the next decade for developing nations to fight climate change, an eleventh hour effort to break an impasse here on climate-change talks. Mrs. Clinton also emphasized that the US would not commit to the plan if all major economies don't commit to various provisions, including carbon-emission reductions that are verifiable and transparent... The U.S. proposal received a cautious greeting from other players at the summit. It was seen as an encouraging sign by the U.K....

    The Philadelphia Women’s Center gave away free abortions today in honor of Dr. George Tiller, the abortionist who was murdered last week by an anti-abortion extremist. A worker at the clinic said that an unspecified number of abortions had been performed during the day, but that they had stopped giving them away by late afternoon. She also said that there had not been free abortion giveaways in the past, and that there were no plans to give any away in the future. Under normal circumstances, abortions would not be au gratis at the clinic. But they were today, in honor...

    Anybody want some top-secret seagoing vessels? The Navy has a pair it doesn't need anymore. It has been trying to give them away since 2006, and they're headed for the scrap yard if somebody doesn't speak up soon. One is called Sea Shadow. It's big, black and looks like a cross between a Stealth fighter and a Batmobile. It was made to escape detection on the open sea. The other is known as the Hughes (as in Howard Hughes) Mining Barge. It looks like a floating field house, with an arching roof and a door that is 76 feet wide...

    WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama, commencing face to face consultations with congressional leaders Monday, is embracing an unexpectedly large tax cut of up to $300 billion. Obama said the country faces an "extraordinary economic challenge." Besides $500 tax cuts for most workers and $1,000 for couples, the Obama proposal includes more than $100 billion for businesses, an Obama transition official said. The total value of the tax cuts would be significantly higher than had been signaled earlier.

    With the U.S. economy in crisis, George W. Bush’s already slumping popularity levels have sagged even deeper. This summer, his own political party kept him away from its national convention in St. Paul. The President himself has been reduced to wistful hopes that history will somehow justify him. At this low point, some counterbalance: 1) Even as you read this, Indian commandos are waging a deadly urban battle against Islamic terrorists. Those soldiers have almost certainly trained with U.S. Rangers or Marines — part of an intensifying U.S.-India security partnership that has been one of the most signal foreign policy...
  • U.S. Agrees to Citigroup Bailout (Guarantees $300 billion in toxic assets)

    The federal government agreed Sunday to take unprecedented steps to stabilize Citigroup Inc. by moving to guarantee close to $300 billion in troubled assets weighing on the bank's books, according to people familiar with details of the plan. Treasury has agreed to inject an additional $20 billion in capital into Citigroup under terms of the deal hashed out between the bank, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Treasury officials will charge a higher interest rate for the capital injection -- 8% for the first few years -- than it has charged to dozens of...

    Four major banks, including one that collapsed, two that received federal bailout money and one that filed for bankruptcy this past September, paid former President Clinton $2.1 million for 13 speeches he delivered on their behalf between 2004-2007, according to Senate financial disclosure statements filed by Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.). Citigroup paid Bill Clinton $700,000; Goldman Sachs paid $550,000; Lehman Brothers paid $300,000 and Merrill Lynch paid $175,000 to the former president for speeches during that time period. Sen. Clinton’s 2008 financial disclosure reports are not yet available. Though some of the investment banks were able to entertain the former...

    Washington Post ^ | 11/10/2008 | Amit R. Paley
    The financial world was fixated on Capitol Hill as Congress battled over the Bush administration's request for a $700 billion bailout of the banking industry. In the midst of this late-September drama, the Treasury Department issued a five-sentence notice that attracted almost no public attention. But corporate tax lawyers quickly realized the enormous implications of the document: Administration officials had just given American banks a windfall of as much as $140 billion. The sweeping change to two decades of tax policy escaped the notice of lawmakers for several days, as they remained consumed with the controversial bailout bill. When they...
