    In a country based on the rule of law, a country founded on the principle all citizens are equal under the law, a country who fought to gain its independence from Dear Old England; a monarchy with royalty, upper class, middle class, and lower class all living under different sets of rules and laws; can the rule of law in America survive a Clinton win?

    The press is a willfully ignorant advocacy group Charlie Rose, Norah O’Donnell, and Gayle King are all very wise people who know what they’re talking about. Frankly, it’s tough to overestimate their brilliance. They’re smarter than you, smarter than me, and their analysis should always be considered sacrosanct. For years, they wisely ignored the warnings of conservatives who argued that ObamaCare would destroy the American healthcare system. They scoffed at concerns about rate hikes, evaporating choices in terms of plans and doctors, diminished or rationed care, and stuck to the company line about “saving the average family” money.

    #NeverTrumpers cannot deny the existential threat posed by the “greater evil” of a President Hillary “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” While it is folly to seek “salvation” thru politics, it is equally foolish to elect treasonous criminals to public office. Either Trump or Hillary WILL be elected. No third party has a prayer. One admittedly imperfect man stands not only in defense of our religious liberty, but for all of the rights...

    Millions of Americans need to continue taking out short-term loans in order to make ends meet for their families. This month, liberal bureaucrats have continued to prove that they are out of touch with the reality that average Americans are forced to face each day. Those who lean left believe that the purpose of government is to shelter the citizenry from self-inflicted harm. The problem is that, more times than not, their assessments are dead wrong. Case in point: the left’s recent assault on the short-term lending industry.

    A package of bills that would establish statewide, uniform regulations and an open market for transportation companies has been introduced in the Michigan Legislature. Importantly, it would also restrict local governments’ ability to manipulate this market. More than a year ago, the Michigan House passed a bill package related to ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft. These companies are operating in some areas in Michigan, but they have been restricted by municipal regulators. The bills would explicitly make it legal for them to operate anywhere in the state, meaning that no matter where you live, you could start earning extra...

    Trump should do things just like everyone else--play the game--just like the establishment “Hey, lie just like Hillary Clinton and the rest of the establishment” is the message. After Donald Trump said he’d only accept the results of the November 8 contest if they were fair, pundits and politicians disgorged a new narrative: Trump has demeaned our “democracy” and, as coward-con John Podhoretz put it, “has earned his place in the history of American ignominy.” Stick a fork in Trump—he’s done. Of course, it seems as if we heard that epitaph about every two weeks during the primaries. And even...

    They can't vote, but they can tell you who to vote for. Back in 2012, Obama granted legal status to 3/4 of a million illegals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Their legal status is supposed to be temporary, but anyone who watches Democrat politics knows that’s not the case. The plan, of course, is to keep them here forever, and Hillary has promised to do just that if she’s elected. So, they’re doing their best to help make it happen. They may not be allowed to vote but, as the Washington Post reports, many of Obama’s...

Michael Wolff is a longtime USA Today columnist and frequent media critic - and he’s no fan of Donald Trump, to put it mildly. He clearly sees it happening, not only in the usual media bias sense, but also at the unprecedented level we’re seeing this year. What’s more, Wolff freely acknowledges that standard media bias is liberal, although he argues that their interest in a competitive race usually blunts their bias. I’ve been hearing that one from media types for...

There is no question that the U.S. economy is in terrible shape and that the policy decisions made in the last ten years have negatively affected everyone who trades, invests, and use the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency.

    After a slowdown in the past few years, crony capitalism — whereby politicians give special favors to politically connected businesses — is on the move in Michigan. The state racked up nearly $10 billion in liabilities during the tenure of former Gov. Jennifer Granholm, with the backing of Republican legislators. The state will be paying the cost of these favors for decades. It already consumes more than $1 billion of the current state budget. But Gov. Rick Snyder came into office and worked to wean the state off the practice of giving out tax credits (though not many other subsidies)....

    During Michigan’s economic “Lost Decade” of the 2000s, state government seemed to have just one response for crushing income and employment declines that cost some 800,000 residents their jobs between 2000 and 2010: more corporate welfare. If there was any evidence this approach works to turn around an ailing economy — there is not — it still could not have overcome the massive drag imposed on the Michigan economy by business and income tax increases enacted in 2007, and smaller exactions like a 2004 property tax hike. Starting in 2011 a new governor steered a different course. Gov. Rick Snyder...

They own the Millennial vote and they’ll continue to own it for as long as Millennials are around. Maybe. But there’s a reason people tend to become more conservative as they get older, and it usually has to do with the fact that they have to go out and tackle real responsibility.

However, the news isn’t making anybody happy. Beneficiaries will receive a measly 0.3% increase to their benefits, which translates to about $5 a month. Not only does the tiny increase do nothing to help beneficiaries keep pace with price increases, but it’s coming in tandem with a major spike in Medicare premiums set to happen early next year.

Of course the story was everywhere because Bill’s indiscretion opened a previously sealed file before the whole world - and so everybody could then talk about it.

    Health insurance premium hikes and dwindling service alternatives under the Affordable Care Act were described by President Obama as "a transition phase of the program." "Right now a lot of people are whining about having to pay more or having no choice of doctors or plans where they live," Obama remarked. "All of these complaints originate from a selfish individual perspective. Sure, some isolated individuals may have to pay more and get less, but in the more crucial issue of our progress toward collective social justice we are on track." Before Obamacare, annual family premiums for employer-provided coverage cost an...

    I understand Pamela Geller is trying to sue Facebook. Count me in Employees at Facebook want to remove Trump posts under the rubric of hate speech, yet Jew hatred is permitted. These are the people who decide for all of us on Facebook what is and is not acceptable speech. I fear for the next generation. Raised on social media these people have given power to one man, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame, who has power over all speech all over the world. We are guilty of allowing this. We are guilty because we did not make room for competition....

    I guarantee you Hillary Clinton will continue Obama's legacy All rights come from God. We are born with them. They are unalienable, which means no power on Earth can take them away. They stay with us for life. All rights are individual, and they are absolute within the context of the right. If rights are not absolute, then they aren’t a right at all. If one aspect of a right can be shed, then so can the whole right. If a right can be “interpreted,” then it can be interpreted out of existence. One right that is universal and a...

    Will you vote for the Iron Matrix of lies, subjugation, serfdom, your own enslavement, and maybe your own death by nuclear war? In 66 AD, Gamala was an ancient city-fortress built on the slopes of a ragged, dragon-tooth mountain. The city itself spread upward along the very steep gradient and clung there like a stone carpet. Gamala was walled and considered invulnerable. Gamala was the last bastion of freedom in Judea. It was the last outpost of truth, justice, and the way of humanity. The invading power, however, sought to conquer and subjugate all Humankind to their suppressive rule, their...

    Her loudest battle cry for election is that the Russians are doing us in—never knowing that we know that Hillary and the Progressives are doing us in—for Russia We already know the outcome of Election 2016: Donald J. Trump will win in a landslide—but the globalist-controlled ‘progressives’ will claim victory. How do we know that? Because that’s what they’ve been doing all along, claiming that Election 2016 was Hillary’s to win from the get-go; sending out a daily message that Hillary, lies, scandals and corruption notwithstanding, is leading all polls. The Democrats, most of them Marxist too the core and...

    Matthew Apperson has been convicted of attempted murder of George Zimmerman, firing a gun into a vehicle, and aggravated assault. The trial occurred in the same courtroom where Zimmerman was found not guilty by reason of self defense, in the killing of Trayvon Martin.  The sentence was handed down yesterday, on October 17th.  It is for a minimum of 20 years in prison. Apperson claimed self defense.  He said that as he was driving, Zimmerman accelerated, and that as he approached Zimmerman's vehicle from behind and to the right, he accessed his firearm, because he feared Zimmerman.  Then, as...

    As governments attempt to make more guns and gun ownership illegal, they succeed in doing so.  It does not mean that fewer criminals are armed.  Overall crime does not drop when controls are implemented.  One of the reasons is that guns are fairly easy to make, and the materials to make them are virtually impossible for an industrial society to control. An unintended consequence is that submachine guns or machine pistols may be substituted for ordinary pistols.  They are easier to make, because they are a simpler mechanism. The above machine pistol/ submachine gun, based on the MAC design...

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016 Obama's Iranian Lies Posted by Daniel Greenfield Senator Obama opposed naming Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps a terror group even while it was closely involved in organizing attacks against American soldiers in Iraq. Then, as part of his dirty deal with Iran, he secretly sent a fortune in foreign cash on airplanes linked to the IRGC. And, as another part of the secret ransom deal with Iran, he lifted UN sanctions on Bank Sepah. The United States has gone after plenty of banks for aiding terror finance, but Bank Sepah is somewhat unique in that it is...
