    Donald J. Trump has been working to mend fences with many of his detractors, but among literary luminaries it is looking like it will be a tough sell. A group of more than 400 writers, including big names such as Stephen King, David Eggers, Amy Tan, Junot DŪaz and Cheryl Strayed, released an online petition on Tuesday to express their opposition to Mr. Trumpís candidacy on the grounds that he is appealing to the darkest elements in American society. ďThe rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression...
  • Dylann Roof case: Feds to seek death penalty

    Federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Dylann Roof, who is accused of killing nine people at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, in July 2015. Roof, who is white, is charged with 33 federal offenses, including hate crime charges for allegedly targeting his victims on the basis of their race and religion. A judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf in July 2015. "The nature of the alleged crime and the resulting harm compelled this decision," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said.

    So I just saw little article about leftist 60s guy Neil Young who said Donald Trump couldn't use one of his songs...same thing with Aerosmith.... So, it just kind of struck me: Artist "Y" created something and THEN Trump purchases the CD/Music File/Record, whatever the material is upon which the recording is made...and then uses it for his OWN pleasure. Artist Y hates Trump and says that even though the record can be bought and purchased, Trump cannot play it publicly. And that wish is respected. Baker "J" creates cakes.

    This was the year when Republicans had everything going for them, politically-speaking, in the 2016 presidential election. On every level, economically, fiscally, socially, America is in a lot worse shape under Barack Obama's debt-ridden, inept presidency. And his party's frontrunner is offering us four more years of the same. Poverty is up. Violent crime is up. The middle class is shrinking. Businesses, especially factories and retail, are in trouble. The economy is barely growing. People are hurting. The Gallup Poll this week found that only 36 percent of U.S. adults say the economy is "getting better," while 60 percent say...

    The FBI is reportedly coordinating with Hillary Clintonís campaign schedule in order to find a time to interview the presidential candidate about her private email server, CNN reports. Investigators have already interviewed several of Clintonís top State Department aides, including Huma Abedin, the network reported on Thursday. Some of those aides have been interviewed several times. The next step in the investigation ó which is looking into whether any classified information was mishandled on Clintonís server ó will be to interview Clinton herself. But that poses a problem because she is in the heat of a presidential campaign. And with...

While campaigning in Wisconsin before next week's presidential primary, Clinton said that as president she would have a litmus test for any Supreme Court nominee. "I would not appoint someone who didn't think Roe v. Wade is settled law," she declared. Her nominee(s) would also have to show that they support overturning the Citizens United decision that established free speech rights for interest groups. She added that while...

Holding apparent print outs of internet comments, Clinton escalated his attacks on his wife's opponent in Milford, New Hampshire Sunday night. Bill Clinton Takes Aim at Bernie Sanders "For her, this is not about grand revolution. This is about whether can improve peoples lives," Clinton said with a frail voice. "Vicious trolling," he dubbed apparent comments made towards female Clinton supporters, "that are literally too profane often - not to mention sexist - to...

    Canada's Trudeau to DiCaprio: Your climate remarks don't help By Reuters Published: 17:04 EST, 22 January 2016 | Updated: 17:04 EST, 22 January 2016 DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Leonardo DiCaprio to tone down his "inflammatory rhetoric" on climate change saying it was not helping those who have lost their oil-industry jobs. The movie star had told the World Economic Forum in the Swiss mountain town of Davos on Wednesday that corporate greed was causing climate change and "enough is enough." At a dinner later in the day, Trudeau, elected in October as...

    While Cruz is running for president in 2016 as the consummate outsider, he launched his political career as a Bush administration insider, and his relationship with the GOP establishment is far deeper and more complex than he lets on. On the trail today, Cruz bashes the "Washington cartel," jokes of being so hated in the U.S. Capitol that he needs a "food-taster," and says at nearly every stop, "If you see a candidate Washington embraces, run and hide." But 16 years ago, as a young domestic policy adviser for Bush's 2000 campaign, Cruz himself had sought Washington's embrace. He uprooted...

    In his new book, Thank You, President Bush: Reflections on the War on Terror, Defense of the Family, and Revival of the Economy, author Rod D. Martin argues that Bush has not only made America safer and stronger, but that he will go down in history as one of our greatest presidents. At the same time Robert Bryce, author of Cronies: Oil, the Bushes, and the Rise of Texas, America's Superstate, looks at President Bush as an integral part of the Texas oil machine out to enrich both him and his "cronies." The book gathers together the leading lights of...
  • Trump‚Äôs Deportation Proposal Isn‚Äôt Nazism, It‚Äôs A Senate Proposal Called ‚ÄėTouchback‚Äô

    Donald Trump is being accused, along with the entire Republican Party, of being a NAZI who wants to round people up and send them back to their native countries in box cars when all he is doing is promoting a proposal seriously considered by the Senate in 2007. Hillary Clinton equated Republicans with NAZIs Friday. Presidential candidate Clinton, who is facing a possible indictment for violating the Espionage Act, thinks if you want borders and have concerns about illegal immigration then you are a NAZI putting people in box cars. No candidate has proposed putting immigrants in box cars. Trump’s...
  • David Brooks's Hypocritical Attack on Ted Cruz Reveals an Important Truth

    Because Cruz kept a repeat offender in prison, Brooks says he's not a good Christian. David Brooks does not like Ted Cruz. In an escalating series of attacks, Brooks has gone from saying that Cruz doesn't "live within the confines of reality" and is "nakedly ambitious" - a "selfish Machiavellian" - to now saying that Cruz's rhetoric is "Satanic" or perhaps "Mephistophelian." But Brooks really tears into Cruz in his latest column, arguing that his speeches are "marked by what you might call pagan brutalism." He claims that Cruz's "career and public presentation" are devoid of "the Christian virtues: humility,...

    Proper liberal credentials trump all the usual forms of identity politics. In the 21st century, doctrinaire liberalism is synonymous with hypocrisy. Or maybe it is better seen as career insurance, providing exemption from all the many paradoxes of a leftist worldview. The rich supporter of affirmative action still uses, without apology, the old-boy network to pull privileged strings to get his own son admitted to the proper college. Al Gore flies on a carbon-spewing private jet, saving the planet by getting to conferences more quickly and enjoyably. High-tax proponent John Kerry docks his yacht where he can avoid taxes; how...

    Western elites and Third World critics both enjoy Western largesse. Professing dislike of the West and its culture and legacy is an industry on campus. The subtext of ‚Äúwhite privilege‚ÄĚ is that it consists of unearned status accorded those of European background. To listen to the anti-Westerners, you would think that the inventors of electrical generation, indoor plumbing, and vaccinations were enemies of the planet. Multiculturalism, the orthodoxy of popular culture, and the current bite of the media and the arts are all predicated on the idea that Western civilization is more toxic than admirable. Citing the evils of the...
  • Libs Demand Trump‚Äôs Name Be Stripped From State Park HE DONATED!

    Liberals are flailing about doing everything they can to attack Donald Trump. The latest effort seems to be removing Trump's name from a $100 million park he donated to New York State - called "Donald J. Trump State Park." Despite the massive donation, Democratic lawmakers are trying to strip his name from the park and replace it with a folk singer, or Revolutionary War hero or something. Fox News is reporting two liberal lawmakers plan to introduce the "Anything But Trump Act," (yes, it's that transparent), which would remove the name - and the signs - from a closed 440-acre...

    Donald J. Trump is still coming under fire from Hillary Clinton's campaign and the media, including National Public Radio (NPR), for using the term "schlonged" to describe her defeat in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary.
