  • Finally: a clear explanation of why the Left loves the death tax

    It’s undoubtedly too soon to begin getting your hopes up yet, but there are signs that the new GOP controlled Congress may finally be getting down to some of the regular business we were promised during the election. Plenty of fire and brimstone has been flying around both chambers over matters of foreign policy and big ticket items, but some mundane issues of importance to conservatives are still waiting on the back burner. Today, one of these should be moving forward. We’re going to have yet another vote on repealing the death tax and it’s got both teams pretty...
  • A Modest Proposal: Barack Obama Should Be Hillary Clinton's Running Mate (aka Desperation of Libs)

    New Republic ^ | April 15, 2015 | Brian Beutler
    Because Hillary Clinton is white and no longer young, a strain of political thought holds that she might lack Barack Obamas inherent appeal to new and minority voters and thus that she wont be able to ride the Democratic partys demographic advantages to easy victory in 2016. Writing for the Washington Examiner, Philip Klein ably sketches the nightmare scenario for liberals. If Hillary's performance among black voters retreats to more typical Democratic levels, he writes, it will hinder her efforts in swing states such as Ohio and Florida, where Democrats need to rack up huge margins in urban areas to...

    Now that Hillary Rodham Clinton has announced her second attempt at becoming Our President, we should consider the implications of her support -- and the lack of accountability that she has come to expect. And we should definitely consider the consequences of her becoming Chief Executive. At least one person associated with her has died under questionable circumstances. She has gleefully and repeatedly participated in attacking the much-younger women who dared to open their mouths about her husband using his position of authority to manipulate them into servicing him sexually. She has used insider trading to enrich herself while at...

    American Spectator ^ | 04/11/2015 | Matt Purple
    Its often said theres an Eleventh Commandment in conservative politics: Thou shalt not speak ill of any Republican. This edict is usually attributed to Ronald Reagan, though it was actually coined by then-California Republican Party chairman Gaylord B. Parkinson in 1965. Since then many conservatives have treated it as constitutional law, deriving from it interpretive statutes about how the right should behave. Today those conservatives must feel like Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles when he steps unsuspectingly out of the bathroom only to find food flying in all directions. The modern right is wrought with divisions. Weve got Tea Partiers...

    Accusations of dual loyalty against Jews used to be something one expected to hear, if at all in this country, from the extreme right. But modern conservatives generally strongly support Israel and rarely display anti-Semitic tendencies. On the other hand, the far left has been anti-Israel for decades, and hostility to the Jewish state -- often occulted by philo-Israel bromides -- is increasingly becoming a mainstream sentiment within the Democratic Party. Some leftist Jews have raised the issue before, but now many more have recklessly raised the canard as a means to support President Obamas opposition to Israeli Prime Minister...

The good Oxford don did not live to see the times we now live in, times in which progressive extremists can state a straight face that actually there are no sexual perversions times in which even the long-held taboos against pedophilia and incest are falling like dominoes. The evidence that in the name of absolute sexual freedom, traditional taboos are no longer to be honored is everywhere. While sexual perversion has always existed, it has never been as widely tolerated and...

    Three consecutive events, initiated by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, make it clear that hidden within the campaign propaganda are genuine threats to Israels security and standing. The assumption that the killing on the Golan Heights of the senior Hezbollah figures and the Iranian general, which has been attributed to Israel, was necessary is not convincing. Israel has already suffered lethal retaliation, in which two soldiers were killed. It would have been possible to accept the claim, by senior officers and by cabinet ministers, according to which no political considerations were behind the operation, had it had coincided with the growing...

To believe in Global Warming while stamping the snow off your boots is not a matter of science. It is a matter of faith.

    Some new media critics really need to make up their minds. It’s either a Do Nothing Congress or a Do Something Awful Congress. If you ask the folks at Talking Points Memo, we’ll be leaning toward the latter because the House was getting busy taking care of business before half of the new members had located the bathrooms. A minor rules change was put in place which modifies the way tax revenues are occasionally shuffled between the Social Security trust fund and the Social Security disability program. There’s a reason for this, as we’ll get to below, but to...

But the leader of Frances National Front says she has been left out. Wednesdays shooting, in which 12 people were killed, including some of Frances most celebrated cartoonists, triggered poignant and spontaneous demonstrations across France, where many held aloft pens to voice support for freedom of expression. The outpouring of grief and solidarity underscored Frances attachment to a cherished tradition of satirical cartoons that goes back to the French Revolution.

    I actually watched the initial statement and question-and-answer session with the press from beginning to end -- and what is actually "bizarre" is HuffPo writer Alana Horowitz' distorted caricature of an editorial being posited as a news account. Prosecutor McCulloch first explained the investigation/deliberation process and noted that evidence was the basis of the ultimate decision that the Grand Jury took. It was necessary, IMO for him to address the agendized speculation from those who were not there and a media that was hungry for a story. McCulloch then summarized the evidence in detail, comparing the physical evidence with the...

    The unemployment rate has fallen by nearly three percentage points and the U.S. economy has added 4.6 million jobs since President Obama won re-election in November 2012, but voters in the midterm elections gave him no credit for the improvement. Analysis of exit polls from Tuesdays elections shows that voters who say their finances are getting worse voted 2 to 1 for Republican candidates, and that 6 out of 10 voters were dissatisfied with the Obama administrations management. Obama pointed out Wednesday in his post-election press conference that although many economic indicators are improving, "there are still a lot of...

In this case, the gentleman in the video was a Democrat because (1) he is black and therefore liberal party alliance is automatic, and (2) he had a long-held belief that the Democratic Party was the party for everyday people. But then, several years ago, he had a...

But one thing is for certain: A very large and prosperous group close by wont sacrifice a cent the mostly white citizens of neighboring Oakland County. The reaction of one Oakland County official was that Reich,...

    Everywhere Hillary Clinton goes, a thousand cameras follow. Then she opens her mouth, and nothing happens. Clinton made a much-ballyhooed appearance in Iowa over the weekend, giving a speech widely noted for its substancelessness. She had no explicit message of her own, Politico noted, while The Economist pronounced it underwhelming. MSNBCs Joe Scarborough was so frustrated by Clintons lack of verve that he went on an extended rant about it, proclaiming, I know her and like her, but she puts on that political hat and shes a robot! The coverage of Clintons speech seemed to contain more meditation about how...

    SARASOTA, Fla. The uproar over Common Core has created misinformation and serious concerns as to its efficacy. To clear up the confusion, once and for all, we must look at the birth of Common Core to see the vision guiding its mission. However noble Common Core may sound, it is but a host carrier for a radical disease that must be exposed. commoncoreappleCommon Cores roots date to 2007 when David Coleman and Jason Zimba wrote: Math and Science Standards That Are Fewer, Clearer, Higher to Raise Achievement at All Levels. The paper outlined a proposal to solve the math...

    Truett Cathy, Chick-fil-A founder, died Monday at age 93. With hard work, discipline, and dedication, he turned a single Atlanta diner into a popular restaurant chain and household name. He rose from poverty to riches. Cathy opened his first restaurant in 1946, just after returning from serving his country in World War II. Today, Chick-fil-A has nearly 2,000 outlets in 39 states. All along, the man was faithful to his business, his family, and his God. You would think that his lifes story would elicit nothing but praise. But if you think that, then you dont live in modern America...
  • Two Generations of Leftist and American Muslim Ideology Bears Rotten Fruit

    We should be concerned when reading Y. Kerry Saras essay of being raised as a young black girl under hard Leftist -- and black American Muslim -- ideology. Our Presidents mother worked hard to raise him with similar ideas and we must wonder how much of the hatred for everything that America stands for that his mentors held has touched his soul -- and affected his policies as well as how he regards the body of the American people. The Left -- and particularly the Party of Jim Crow -- has a lot to answer for in their inter-generational pursuit...

    Although Phil Robertson appeared on Tuesday's Good Morning America to promote his new book, reporter Ryan Owens couldn't resist portraying the reality show personality as an anti-gay bigot. Owens reminded viewers of the Duck Dynasty star's interview with GQ where he called homosexuality a sin. Owens pressed, "Would you consider yourself a homophobe?" [See video below. MP3 audio here.] Robertson retorted, "I'm as much of a homophobe as Jesus was. People who are participating in homosexual behavior, they need to know that I love them." ABC has not been consistent in pressing liberal celebrities about their controversial views. GMA hosts...

    Does the Left Hate America I dont think the Left hates America. I think the left hates our founders vision of America as established in our founding documents. Before going further, let me explain my position regarding Americas government. I favor the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land. The Constitution guarantees to every state a Republican form of government. A Republican form of government means governance by the rule of law thereby avoiding a Democracy wherein a majority can ignore laws they no longer favor. In a Republican form of government, the majority makes law but a majority...
  • Egalitarianism Is Not What Leftist Politicians Make You Think

    "Egalitarianism" sounds so good, progressive, enlightened and compassionate. And above all, of course, caring. But in reality the opposite of all those adjectives is closer to the truth of egalitarianism. For the only way to make all the individuals of a society equal is to reduce everyone to the lowest common denominator. Recently it was the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Three years later, in 1917, the Russian Revolution took place. This should remind us that in the past almost 100 years during which attempts at equalisation were repeatedly made, everybody - except...

    The Daily Callers Official Rundown Of Americas Worst, Most Leftist Professors American colleges and universities provide a cushy salary for countless academic hacks, so they can spew progressive ideologies at undergrads. These professors, though, are the cream of the egregious crop. Harvard professor Naomi Oreskes co-penned a book about global warming and how the earth will one day be a wasteland unless drastic, draconian action is taken. However, the hypocritical Ivy League professor doesnt heed her own advice because she frequently tours across the world in pollution-emitting jumbo jets.

    The task before me is explaining with appropriate distinctions and qualifications What is right and what is left? For those who wish to avoid the harangue of an activist, let me assure them that I do not equate conservative with Republican or with the viewing habits of FOX News devotees. Being a Republican and dutifully reciting party talking points is for me no sign of being on the right; nor is a disinclination to do either indicative of being on the left. A classical or essentialist Right is hard to find in the contemporary Western world, where journalists and other...
