  • Leftist Conundrums

    Vanity | 27 Oct 2016 | wgflyer
    Without mind bending drugs, leftist logic is a little unclear. I guess that’s why universities these days dedicate so much course work to it and Hollywood makes so many movies showing us how leftism really is a good thing (achievable with special effects). In realville, where practical application of any thesis is required, there isn’t much apparent logic in leftism at all. Rather, a plethora of conflicting thoughts and feelings trample one another for dominance. The two forces that keep the various leftist special interests from implosion and mutual self destruction are their ignorance of their ignorance and their hatred...

  • Unions' $15 Minimum Wage About-Face

    Forbes ^ | Apr 25, 2016 | Rex Sinquefield
    Recent discussions within Los Angeles labor groups reveal inherent hypocrisy within the “Fight for $15” campaign. Unions paid plenty of lip service toward this effort, which would raise the minimum wage to $15. The Los Angeles City Council is considering a measure that would raise the city’s minimum wage to $15 by 2020, and this month California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 by 2022. It seems that unions should be celebrating this supposed win for workers – yet union leaders are currently seeking an exemption to the $15-an-hour minimum wage for union...
  • On Feingold’s honor: Former senator still silent on honoraria call

    Wisconsin watchdog ^ | 8-20-15 | M. D. Kittle
    MADISON, Wis. — Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, one of the louder critics of speaking fees for government officials, still hasn’t answered his critics’ calls to release the full amount of honoraria the Democrat has pocketed. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel piece this week revealed Feingold took in more than $100,000 in speaking fees between February 2012 and June 2013, much of that money for discussions on the corrupting influence of money in politics. The Wisconsin GOP, however, believes Feingold, the godfather of campaign finance reform, has yet to reveal all of his earnings from speaking engagements before that period. “To...

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | May 26, 2015 | Tony Lee
    by TONY LEE 26 May 2014  POST A COMMENT Even the beltway-centric National Journal concedes that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is right about the double standard in the mainstream media's coverage of women. That double standard is put on steroids when it comes to conservative women who are outsiders like Palin, who is neither beholden to nor cares about the elite opinion makers and whisperers in the permanent political class. After Palin blistered and mocked liberals and the mainstream press for coddling Hillary Clinton last week, Emma Roller noted in National Journal, "nearly every reporter covering the 2008 campaign bought into" the narrative...

    No place on the planet is as beautiful and as naturally rich as California. And few places have become as absurd. Currently, three California state senators are either under felony indictment or already have been convicted. State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) made a political career out of demanding harsher state gun-control laws. Now he is facing several felony charges for attempting to facilitate gun-running. One count alleges that Lee sought to provide banned heavy automatic weapons to Philippines-based Islamic terrorist groups. State Sen. Ron Calderon (D-Montebello), who had succeeded one brother, Thomas, in the state Assembly and was succeeded...

The trio dined at Restaurant Nora in Washington’s Dupont Circle neighborhood. “The menu changes daily, offering a la carte items and a four-course chef’s tasting menu,” the restaurant’s website says. “The wine list presents over 100 exceptional wines from small producers, many of them using organically grown grapes and sustainable practices.” Founded in 1979,...

    One of the problems that Barack Obama has in mounting an attack against the Assad regime is that the gambit violates every argument Barack Obama used against the Bush administration to establish his own anti-war candidacy. The hypocrisy is so stunning that it infuriates his critics and stuns his supporters. Deriding the Iraq war was Obama’s signature selling point. He used it to great effect against both Hillary Clinton (who voted for the war) in the Democratic primaries and John McCain in the general election. For the last five years, disparagement of “Iraq” and “Bush” has seemed to intrude into...

    In an explosive exchange outside the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington, D.C., security guards for billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg accosted senior Talk Radio Network investigative reporter Jason Mattera when he asked the mayor about his strong support for gun control. In the video, Bloomberg is seen surrounded by security. Mattera approaches Bloomberg and asks, “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?” Bloomberg’s reply: “Uh, you, we’ll get right back to you.” “Why can you defend yourself but not the majority of Americans?” Mattera asks as the mayor walks away....

    2nd 'potatoe' moment this week for campaign in Ohio If Barack Obama carries the key swing state of Ohio in November, it won’t be because he and his supporters know how to spell. Today, at a Republican rally in Powell, Ohio, an airplane pulling a banner attempted to capitalize on Mitt Romney’s “joke” yesterday in Michigan about not needing to show his birth certificate. The Democrats have responded by accusing Romney of having joined the “birthers,” and the airplane banner continued that theme. Unfortunately, the supporters who sponsored the banner – MoveOn.org, as reported by a Los Angeles Times reporter...

    Obama and his democrat thugs are making every effort to hamstring Republican fund raising efforts. The tools they are using for this purpose only add gasoline to the brightly burning fire of democrat hypocrisy. Obama has signaled that he once again will try to bypass Congress and out of thin air fabricate self-serving government rules to limit Republican fund raising. The Obama administration is considering a number of measures to compel disclosure of the kind of anonymous campaign contributions that helped finance millions of dollars of attack ads against Democrats during the 2010 elections. The White House last week...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina's newest Representative Renee Ellmers said the deadly shooting rampage in Arizona has made her concerned for her own safety. Ellmers said she has a concealed carry permit and plans to carry a handgun at public events. However, even in light of the shootings she said she will not support restrictions on certain ammunition. "I think it was an isolated incident and has more to do with the individual who committed the crime than the actual ammo he was using," said Ellmers. North Carolina Congressman Health Shuler has also said in recent weeks he will carry...

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computers, says his company will not be a party to the pornography industry and hopes that the iPad and iPhone revolution will help lead to a porn-free world. Jobs reiterated his position in a heated e-mail exchange with Ryan Tate, a writer for Gawker.com, which follows news and gossip in Silicon Valley and elsewhere.

  • Has Al Gore given up on global warming? (UPDATED)

    Al Gore’s purchase of a near nine million dollar Montecito mansion with an almost comical carbon footprint (nine bathrooms!) probably means that he has given up on the global warming movement and decided to become a Hollywood producer (not that he ever made much of a distinction between two). Montecito is where the creme of the Hollywood creme go when Beverly Hills gets too crowded and nouveau riche. Among others, Michael Douglas, Kevin Costner, Christopher Lloyd, Dennis Franz and Oprah have homes there – and they don’t even have Nobel Prizes. (Douglas and Costner do have Oscars though.) No word...

    Al recently cashed in some carbon credits ... and went on a Mediterranean diet, gobbling up a $9 billion Montecito-area property. Rumor has it he may help offset the economic crisis in Greece, too ... by purchasing all of ancient Athens. Here's what reducing your carbon footprint could look like, if you were funded by Marxist revolutionaries and bought an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, six fireplaces, five bedrooms, and nine bathrooms. Conspicuously absent from the swimming pool are Al's pet polar bears.

    Arrayed around a long mahogany table in the White House state dining room last week, the CEOs of the most powerful financial institutions in the world offered several explanations for paying high salaries to their employees — and, by extension, to themselves. * * * But President Barack Obama wasn’t in a mood to hear them out. He stopped the conversation and offered a blunt reminder of the public’s reaction to such explanations. “Be careful how you make those statements, gentlemen. The public isn’t buying that.” “My administration,” the president added, “is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.”...

    So now Howard Dean and Markos, at the Daily Kos, want to kill Obamacare. [As does, Keith Olbergirlyman.] It seems that, without a public option, they no longer are concerned with helping all those poor folks dying because of a lack of insurance. I never believed they gave a damn about those people, but I’m glad they could confirm it for me. For the far left, it was never about reform and improving access. Instead, it was all about bigger government and more control over people’s lives

    During the 108th Congress, the democrats were screaming ugly about the procedural abuses of the Republican-led Congress. They issued a report entitled "Broken Promises: The Death of Deliberative Democracy - A Congressional Report on the Unprecedented Erosion of the Democratic Process in the 108th Congress." Significant portions of the Executive Summary are below. The report includes precise allegations on an action-by-action basis. Not quite humorously, we are watching as the dems are guilty of precisely their claims again the pubs just a few years ago.
