    On the morning after a financial collapse things will look almost exactly as when you went to sleep. The elm tree and mailbox will stand where they were, the scene will appear unchanged all the way to the horizon. On the Day After the outward world is unchanged. What will have altered beyond all recognition are the invisible claims on that physical world. The homely mailbox, for example, may no longer be yours, nor the land on which the elm tree is growing. It could have reassigned while you were sleeping. If one can imagine the world in terms of...

    Creepy: These are the people who - if you dare to criticize their barbaric, stone-age, existence - will snicker as their liberal American sympathizers label you a racist. Back in February, you may have heard the story of three British girls who tricked their families, headed for the airport, and hopped a plane to Turkey. From there they headed to Syria and straight into the waiting arms of ISIS. When we say “waiting arms” it’s not just a figure of speech either. We now know that two of the young girls are married to fine, upstanding, Islamic radicals. As the...

Patty has a bright future ahead of her no matter what she intends to do Patty, who for obvious reasons does not want her full name used, operates the Facebook page, Young, Black and Conservative.

    LANCASTER, Pa. -- America just marked its 239th Independence Day, the birth of what many consider the greatest nation on earth. But after all these years of celebrating, Americans may soon be mourning its downfall. That's the conclusion of researcher George Barna and historian David Barton in their book U-Turn: Restoring America to the Strength of Its Roots. ***** Faith is losing its foothold in the land. "The proportion of unchurched people has risen from 28 percent to 48 percent in six years," Barna shared. "The fastest growing faith group in America is atheists and agnostics."

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/4/2015 | Anna Pfaff
    The Michigan Senate is considering a bill that would prevent taxpayer-funded union “release time” in most settings. There is a real-world cost to this practice, which allows union stewards to spend time working for a private entity when they are supposed to be working for the public. Senate Bill 280, introduced by Sen. Marty Knollenberg, R-Troy, would prevent collective bargaining agreements from offering paid release time used by teachers or other school district employees to conduct union business. While still allowing employees to spend time working on union negotiations, this would be paid for by the union rather than taxpayers....

    What is wrong with the above picture?  Everything.  First, it gives the impression that small children gaining access to firearms is a big problem in this country.  It isn't.  The number of children under ten that fatally shoot themselves or others in firearm accidents each year is in the single digits.  Most of those are shot by an adult.  In a country of 313 million people and 347 million firearms, that is a remarkable safety record. So why the picture of a 4 year old with a revolver?  Simple.  Shock propaganda value aimed at the non-gun owner, and an...

    The first Republican presidential debate is one month away, making the next 30 days a critical period for the more than half-dozen candidates who are in danger of being left off the stage. The Fox News debate in Cleveland on Aug. 6 will only include the top 10 candidates, as determined by national polling averages. If the debate were held today, the governor of a critical battleground state would miss the cut, as would the winner of the 2012 Iowa caucuses. Businessman Donald Trump, meanwhile, appears on track to take the stage. Fox News has said it will determine the...

In an interview on ABC Eyeball-News-7, "the man accused of shooting and killing a young woman at San Francisco's Pier 14 admitted to the crime and talked about where he got the gun." His name is Francisco Sanchez. The Eyeball News reporter asked, "'Did you shoot Kate Steinle, the lady who was down at Pier 14.' Sanchez: 'Yes.' [Reporter]: 'You did shoot her?' Sanchez: 'Mmm hmm,' he said with a nod." That means the guy is going to get off scot-free. Do you know in our modern culture, confession is the equivalent...

    Treating the Confederate Flag as a hated enemy because some low life racists have misused it conflicts with Dr. Martin Luther King’s teaching that we should love our enemies. Instead of trying to ban the flag, black leaders should be embracing it so they can turn it into a symbol of racial harmony. Turning the Confederate Flag into a symbol of racial harmony would rob racists of an opportunity to misuse a popular southern symbol to further their goals

Like you, I did not choose to be attracted to women. Like you, I married a woman that I love deeply and care about with my heart and soul. Unlike you, this has made me a target for hatred, vitriol, and state-sanctioned discrimination.

    Freedom, both the incandescent whisper of revolution and the reduced triviality of commercialism, is the seed from which the most opulent columns of civilization have sprung and the hammer from which the most prolific empires have fallen. If history has taught us anything, other than man’s propensity for the most transcendent achievements and the most grotesque atrocities, it’s that you cannot fight or defeat an idea, even long after its armies are vanquished. It endures as long as man endures and believes in its undying premise. What is liberty’s most quintessential definition? Is it merely a politician’s word, wrapped around...

    An imprisoned hip hop artist currently serving a 10-year sentence in a California state penitentiary released a track decrying the prevalence of state violence against black communities. The song, 28 Hours, by Richie Reseda, was co-released by Black Lives Matter and Los Angeles-based art collective G.R.E.E.D.Y. City last month. With lyrics that reference the deaths of Renisha McBride, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and others, the song represents a passionate, politically charged condemnation of police violence and mass incarceration. “Suicide, genocide at the same time,” sings Reseda. “No one’s on my side so I throw up gang signs.

The experts say the most likely explanation for certain features of the 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet, such as its organic-rich black crust, is the presence of living organisms beneath an icy surface. Rosetta, the European spacecraft orbiting the comet, is also said to have picked up strange "clusters" of organic material that resemble viral particles.

So it all comes down to a lack of imagination on...

    Under a law that dates back to 1931 ticket scalping is banned in Michigan. But that could soon change. The House has passed legislation (House Bill 4015) to repeal the 84-year-old statute that makes it a crime to sell a ticket to sporting events, concerts, plays and other attractions for more than its face value. The bill is currently awaiting action in the Senate Commerce Committee. Supporters of the measure argue that once a ticket has been purchased it becomes the property of the purchaser and government has no business interfering with an individual’s right to sell his or her...

Insurers are seeking rate hikes of 20 to 40 percent for next year because they think they already have enough economic and political clout to get them. ...

Now you might be able to offer this defense of the president: He can do his job from anywhere. He has communication capabilities wherever he goes, and he has the freedom to use them any time he wants. And, yes, that’s true. And on the night of September 11, 2012, he did make use of his communication tools to talk with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton...

    So much for your $2500.00 savings. There have been plenty of stories about the ways in which ObamaCare is driving up healthcare costs. All across the country, we’ve seen double digit insurance rate hikes and soaring premiums. It’s nothing new, and conservatives have been warning that this would be the case since long before the unpopular law was rammed down America’s throat. However, acknowledgement of ObamaCare’s failure usually comes from either right-leaning news sources, or insurance industry watchdogs. We don’t often get it from the far-left paper of record, The New York Times: Health insurance companies around the country are...

Why is it OK for our elected leaders to NOT enforce our immigration laws and to allow millions of medically and criminally unvetted trespassers to cross our border? Why is perfectly acceptable for the White House to encourage and even orchestrate illegal immigration, transport undocumented foreigners to unsuspecting cities all across America, and grant illegal aliens free welfare, healthcare, and...

    Things aren’t looking good for individual privacy – at least for those who wish to participate in public policy debates. Despite the First Amendment’s strong defense of free expression, speech is increasingly regulated – especially political and policy dialogue. For an increasing number of nonprofit organizations, disclosing contributors’ identities is the price paid to be allowed to advocate in the public square. Some fight back against these regulations, arguing in the name of free speech and individual privacy that promoting public policy should not be regulated in the same way as funding a political candidate. A timely example is playing...

    It’s easy to point out which tactics won’t work to get American conservatives engaged in the fight against climate change. Recently I’ve critiqued arguments that climate hawks should extend a welcoming hand to right-wingers and that Pope Francis’s climate change encyclical will move any Republicans to embrace the issue. But merely knocking down others’ arguments is insufficient when they are trying to solve a real problem. And this problem is quite real: In order to pass comprehensive climate change legislation federally — and to get the right policies also working in tandem at the state and local levels — some...

The investigation into the anomaly that caused New Horizons to enter “safe mode” on July 4 has concluded that no hardware or software fault occurred on the spacecraft. The underlying cause of the incident was a hard-to-detect timing flaw in the spacecraft command sequence that occurred during an operation to prepare for the close flyby. No similar operations are planned for the remainder of the Pluto encounter. “I’m pleased that our mission team quickly...

According to the President, “times have changed and our laws need to change with them. The effort to try to isolate Cuba is a relic of the Cold War that is, in my judgment, no longer pertinent or necessary. Rather than go through the...

    It begins… Leftists want the Minnesota flag taken down because it shows white men working on a farm and an Indian with a spear. Seriously? The Star Tribune reported: “The Minnesota state flag depicts a white man as a hardworking, rugged individualist, and an Indian riding a horse and holding a spear. The current interest in the removal of the Confederate battle flag from public displays and store shelves provides an excellent opportunity to examine what the Minnesota state flag represents. The images on the flag are interpreted by state documents as innocuous symbols of the state’s history. A critical...

    In a video uploaded several days ago by YouTube user Rafael Rivero, an unnamed Hispanic construction worker tells celebrity plutocrat Donald Trump to get bent in response to Trump’s comments calling Mexican immigrants rapists and murderers. “Donald Trump? That son of a gun who says we’re all thieves?” the worker said in response to an unidentified interviewer’s question. He then took a sledgehammer and begins work on a house frame. “Look, [expletive], how we rape…these stakes! How we work ourselves to death just to eat. I make $1,100/week and the government takes $350 to feed your lazy, unemployed drug addicts....

    Napoleon sometimes claimed to be a Muslim. Obama often claims to be a Christian. Napoleon sought, and Obama seeks, power and glory through pretense. Napoleon BonaparteNapoleon's life and history are summarized at Wikipedia. He supported the French Revolution and was appointed General of the Army of Italy at the age of twenty-five. Three years later, he commanded an expedition against Egypt. This post compares his and Obama's religious and political efforts to gain the confidence of Muslims. The lengthy quotations provided in this section of the post are from Worlds at War - the 2,500 year struggle between East and West, 2008, by Anthony Pagden. While en route to...

    Everybody has an opinion about whether the Confederate flag is good or bad. They’re all dug in. Some are certain it’s racist and the very signature of evil. Others say it’s purely an expression of Southern pride and reverence for ancestors who fought and died a long time ago. Some of them have devoted careers and personal reputations to these propositions. A newspaper column is not going to change any minds. The Civil War is a big bagful of ironies and paradoxes, and not a recommended study for folks who like to keep things simple. It would be a particular...
  • Wasn’t a Republican Congress supposed to END Obama’s abuse of power?

    Congress got pumped and America’s citizens got dumped with the passage of the dangerous Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation that looks to send even more of our jobs overseas. “This is what all trade treaties guarantee,” says analyst Jon Rappoport. “The overwhelming leakage of jobs from industrial countries to under developed countries,” is Globalism’s meat and potatoes engine driving our huge job transfer out of the USA.” (1) The plunder of our economic and personal wealth was just bought and paid for in our own Congress with obscene amounts of special interest money “buying” out our Republican leaders. Let’s look...

    An unnamed senior Gulf official told The Telegraph “There is simply no strategic approach, ”that western powers have “a lack of coordination in selecting targets, and there is no overall plan for defeating ISIL.” America’s Middle East allies are getting frustrated that Western leaders, Obama and David Cameron, aren’t showing leadership in the fight against ISIS. Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Gulf states are upset that they are being blocked by the US–aka State Department–from attacking legitimate military targets. The coalition members believe that team Obama does not have clear purpose for conducting a war against ISIS. The Arab countries...

    Mission accomplished: Obama's state-driven, command-and-control economy Ronald Reagan used to counter liberal conventional wisdom by saying he measured compassion, not by how many people the government helps, but by how many people don’t need the help. And he succeeded in that vision by presiding over an economy that grew massively – with net job creation of more than 16 million during his presidency. Reagan gave us an enormous and highly productive work force, and that’s why there was so much prosperity during his time in office. Barack Obama has a very different idea about what life should be like in...

    From dwarves to Dems: There should be no big mystery as to why Alwaleed bin Talal, the Saudi prince Bill Gates talked into giving away all his money to charity, is dumping his riches. No one’s given away all of his money since the last saint more than 2000 years ago. Charity is no longer as conventional as it once was. In the case of the notorious Clinton Foundation, charity eloped with power and has never been the same. Is Prince bin Talal, whose $32 billion fortune makes it possible, about to buy immortality for the Democrats? Now that Barack...
