    The big winner was Cruz, and the big loser was Bush. See below. Just to get started on the right foot, let's state at the outset that "the moderators" could not be the winners of a national debate. They can certainly be the losers, however, if they impede, if they are biased, or if they are infantile. That describes the CNBC moderators and the first Fox News moderators, Kelly/Wallace/Baier. They were losers. But for moderators to 'win' means we have relegated the issues and the candidates to some kind of back row. Who were the real winners last night? I...
  • America's States fail integrity test: Only 3 receive grade higher than D+ in Public Integrity

    American Thinker ^ | 11/10/2015 | Rick Moran
    The Center for Public Integrity has issued a report that shows tht only three states recieved a grade of better than "D+."  The investigation "found that in state after state, open records laws are laced with exemptions and part-time legislators and agency officials engage in glaring conflicts of interests and cozy relationships with lobbyists. Meanwhile, feckless, understaffed watchdogs struggle to enforce laws as porous as honeycombs." That's pulling no punches. After describing disturbing practices in several states, the report says: These are among the practices illuminated by the State Integrity Investigation, which measured hundreds of variables to compile transparency and...

    We're taking Larry deer hunting this weekend. After 35 years in the woods with Larry, sadly, this will be our last together. After 40 years at the same job, he finally had enough and retired this past spring. He's a mere 62 years old. He left his job on a Friday and started his new job the next Monday. Working at a local golf course. Cutting grass, doing maintenance, free lunch everyday and free golf on Mondays. He was in heaven. About three months ago, his eyesight was suddenly failing him. The eye doctor said that there was something affecting...

    I expect to hear it from socialist college professors and Che Guevara t-shirt wearing coffee house loiterers. But to hear it from conservatives with actual jobs is a painful reminder of the ease with which the media have convinced Americans to shut off their minds and allow pundits to do the thinking for them. “I’m worried that Ted Cruz is too extreme.”During the night, someone did a job on the word “extreme.” It ain’t what it used to be. We learned this week that the official position of Obama’s Department of Education is that men should be able to infiltrate...

    Supporting psychological needs So, when significant numbers of teachers tell us they are considering leaving the profession, we ought to consider it a motivational concern. And one of our reactions should be to carefully consider the extent to which we offer them a working environment that respects their needs as human beings. We simply arent doing this. In fact, there is every reason to believe that current educational policy is systematically stifling peoples psychological needs. As an example, one study clearly demonstrated how a system narrowly focused upon pupil achievement and standardised testing had invaded teachers working lives so much...

General Assembly "sold himself and the global institution he led" by allegedly pocketing more than $1 million in bribes to finance a luxury spending spree, according to a federal prosecutor.

    Contrary to the assertions of many, voter fraud is not a myth. It is a stark reality that exists nationwide, from the rural counties of Georgia to the urban centers of New York. The Heritage Foundation has documented nearly 250 cases where nefarious citizens, officials, candidates and campaign operatives conspired to commit vote fraud, compromising the integrity of our elections to achieve their ideological goals. That list is just a tiny sampling of voter fraud, and it keeps growing. In May, the Heritage Foundation highlighted several recent cases. Here are some of the egregious new additions to the voter fraud...

    Eight years ago Barack Obama bound his own party to what proved to be a successful class warfare platformfor him, at least. Unfortunately, and largely due to him, that binding turned out to be more of a hamstringing: there isnt much of the party he brought along with him left in Washington. Obamas constant narrative of division by wealth, sex, race and geography (urban vs. suburban/rural, coasts vs. heartland), is wholly dependent upon grooming and molding enough elected talent within the party to keep it growing. And yet all thats left of the vibrant, rising, seemingly invincible party that Obama...

    Barbarians at the gate usually don't bring down once-successful civilizations. Nor does climate change. Even mass epidemics like the plague that decimated sixth-century Byzantium do not necessarily destroy a culture. Far more dangerous are institutionalized corruption, a lack of transparency and creeping neglect of existing laws. All the German euros in the world will not save Greece if Greeks continue to dodge taxes, featherbed government and see corruption as a business model. Even obeying so-called minor laws counts. It is no coincidence that a country where drivers routinely flout traffic laws and throw trash out the window is also a...

Unfortunately Mrs Lynch, through the course of the entire hearing, refused to acknowledge a single limit on the presidents authority under the Constitution, Cruz said. When I asked her in what ways she would differ from Eric Holder, she said no ways whatsoever. When the junior Texas senator was asked if Lynch would be worse than Eric Holder, Cruz answered Yes I think she would be materially worse.

The assembly says that handling of the pandemic by the World Health Organization, EU health agencies and national governments resulted in a waste of large sums of money and led to unjustified fears about health risks to the public. The assembly is calling for a public fund to support independent research, trials and expert advice, possibly financed by an obligatory contribution from the pharmaceutical industry.

    The United States has a long history of voter fraud that has been documented by historians and journalists. Such fraud can make the difference in a close election, and we have many elections particularly at the local and state level that are decided by a very small number of votes. Every American citizen who is eligible should be able to vote, but it is equally important that every citizens vote not be diluted or stolen through fraud, especially fraud that could change the outcome of an election. Election integrity is fundamental to securing free and fair elections, which...

    Some time ago, a lesbian living in Canada viewed a few of my YouTube videos on the subject of homosexuality, and a lengthy debate ensued. We went back and forth discussing all of the oft-repeated and ridiculous homosexual talking points. Our conversations also included an examination of the New Testaments teachings about homosexuality. I shared the traditional and obvious scriptural prohibitions against all types of same-sex behavior. My lesbian debate opponent, on the other hand, provided the typical contortionist interpretations of biblical sexuality. And no matter how comprehensive or meticulous my explanations, she was completely convinced (deceived) that the New...

    The screeching polarization of American political and cultural life in recent years is exacting a toll. Debate has been debased. Contempt and hatred for those with opposing views is now the norm. While some on the right have criticized their own side -- think of Rick Perry and Jeb Bush challenging immigration opponents, or conservative columnists taking on some talk radio hosts -- liberals have been shamefully silent about the excesses committed by Democrats. That's why it gives me particular pleasure to report that two liberal columnists have recently defied this trend. One is my old friend and sparring partner...

As a fighter pilot, he was undefeated and earned the nickname 40-Second Boyd for his ability to win any dogfight in under a minute. Unmatched in the cockpit, his mind was also without rival. He was not simply a warrior of combat, but a warrior-engineer and warrior-philosopher.

    A performer who pays for good reviews from critics usually isn't any good, and that would seem to be the case for Obamacare, too.

Secretary of State Matt Schultz says the voter fraud cases resulting in arrests so far are only the beginning. Three more cases involving a Bosnian citizen living in Clive and two Canadians who were living in Shenandoah were announced on Wednesday. They are charged with election fraud for registering and voting in Iowa without U.S. citizenship. Two Canadian citizens and a citizen of Mexico and two convicted felons who allegedly registered to vote also have been charged. Schultz says it's likely more arrests will come as the Iowa Criminal Investigation Division works through a list of more than 1,200 people he believes registered to vote without citizenship.</p>

Among the points I made was that the criminal case is probably a loser anyway: The lesson here of far more political...

When a Republican wins a close race, uncounted ballots are "found" in the backseat of a Democrat poll worker's car. American elections are getting...

    Here's an update to yesterday's piece on "doing the right thing"........ which was a big thank you kiss to Tom Blumer, editor of the leading business blog, Bizzy Blog, and a PJM contributor. The foreign contribution story I broke in July 2008 took months to pull together. It is irritating to listen to people justify what amounts to an intellectual theft. It is wrong. Not only did we go through thousands of pages of FEC douments, but I followed up with David Keene (yes, Grover's boy) in 2008 as well. He was the President of the ACU, and I implored...

    In the bathroom of their home, Tim and Nicole have a sign which reads, Gratitude Always remember to count your blessings. Due to the slow economy, Tim, like many Americans, was laid off in July of 2009. So, whats to be grateful about in that? Well, Nicole still had her job full time, as media specialist for Akin Road Elementary School in Farmington, MN, a short distance from Faribault. And Tim had the unemployment compensation benefits (though they are scheduled to run out the end of this month). Then one morning, Tim got a phone call from his...

    Primum nil nocere. First, do no harm. This bedrock principle in medicine is a foreign language to most politicians and, sadly, to some Wisconsin doctors, who have violated their oath and the public trust as they have defrauded Wisconsin taxpayers. Several University of Wisconsin family physicians donned their sacred white coats and were caught distributing fraudulent sick notes free for the asking quite literally by the boxful - I wonder who paid for that printing - to teachers and others who skipped work to engage in political protest at the state Capitol in Madison. Whatever the merits of the teachers...

Skillfully weaving his own narrative with direct quotes from Lincoln and poignant excerpts from other Lincoln biographers, Wheeler brings a refreshingly friendly rendition of Lincoln's life, faith, and courage.

    email | unknown | Paul Bear Bryant
    At a Touchdown Club meeting many years ago, Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant told the following story: I had just been named the new head coach at Alabama and was off in my old car down in South Alabama recruiting a prospect who was supposed to have been a pretty good player, and I was having trouble finding the place. Getting hungry, I spied an old cinderblock building with a small sign out front that simply said "Restaurant." I pull up, go in, and every head in the place turns to stare at me. Seems I'm the only white fella in...

    Republicans introduce bill to eliminate presidential 'czars' By Michael O'Brien - 01/06/11 04:15 PM ET A group of House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to rein in the various "czars" in the Obama administration. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and 28 other House Republicans introduced legislation to do away with the informal, paid advisers President Obama has employed over the past two years. The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration. The bill defines a czar as...

    Coach is Right ^ | 12/22/10 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Complacent conservatives not only have allowed our primary and secondary school systems to descend into the pits of liberal philosophies, but we have kept silent while our American colleges and universities wallow in mediocrity. They [students] are not being given meaningful instruction, regarding the responsibilities of citizens, and they are certainly not being taught the benefits of moral restraint, (p. 213) says author Jim Nelson Black in his outstanding book, Freefall of the American University; How Our Colleges Are Corrupting the Minds and Morals of the Next Generation. As parents and grandparents struggle to get enough tuition dollars together, we...
