    Letting actual FACTS determine what the true story actually is would be a "huge mistake." That, in a nutshell, is the mindset of the modern Leftist. The Left and the Right are vastly and irremediably irreconcilable. This much ought to be obvious to just about anyone with two functioning neurons in their head. The worldview that drives the Left, “progressives” and the rest, is so starkly different from the way normal people think that it’s no wonder we’re seeing the sort of strife we are today. This is hardly made plainer than in the attitude and treatment of each side—the...

    Deputy Minister Tzipi Hotovely spoke with Arutz Sheva Wednesday evening about her efforts to forge a united right-wing bloc to run in next March's general elections - and said the Israeli electorate should be focusing on the policies of candidates, not their personalities. "The time has come to stop dealing all the time with the personal side but rather with the (policy) direction." "We saw how a leader got here, from Yesh Atid, who sold hollow slogans to the public," she said of Yair Lapid, who was fired yesterday by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu prior to the PM's announcement of...

    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 Tuesday’s 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 administration’s management. Obama pointed out Wednesday in his post-election press conference that although many economic indicators are improving, "there are still a lot of...

    This is a fantastic 5-minute video of a black man at a Republican campaign office talking about his journey from being a Democrat to becoming a conservative. Having gone on the same journey seven years ago, I’m ever-intrigued by what causes this shift. And more importantly, how to nurture it in others. 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...

In her Brooklyn Magazine piece, Iverson argues that “it’s no coincidence that Roberts is presented in the video as being explicitly not responsible for the attacks on her because she’s not wearing ‘provocative’ clothes and she doesn’t respond to any of the verbal assaults thrown at her.” At first blush, one would have imagined this to be a positive thing.

The filmmaker was looking to capture a “gotcha” moment in the wake of not one but two bloody jihad attacks in as many days in Canada last week — but he was the one who got gotcha’ed.

African-Americans who, more than any other group, were promised “hope and change” in 2008 have seen plenty of reasons to lose hope, because the changes seen during Barack Obama’s first six years have done them serious harm.Democrats have gotten used to counting on well over 90 percent of blacks voting in their favor.

    This week has featured a potential tipping point in the debate about due process and campus sexual assault. The first event came in publication of an extraordinary column by Ezra Klein, defending California’s “affirmative consent” law. In one respect, it wasn’t surprising to see Klein defend the proposal; too many liberal commentators (not to mention, of course, the entire Democratic contingent in the California legislature, plus Governor Jerry Brown) have backed the law. But Klein’s argument was astonishing—he conceded that the law was flawed, even badly flawed, but celebrated the flaws as a virtue. The law will mean that “too...

Israel is a great country that has its problems, as do all countries and organizations, and sometimes, in the words of President Barack Obama, does “do stupid things.” Israel’s political culture has been shaped by many factors, especially its Zionist ideology, the resilience it has developed in fighting four wars, and the impact of incessant terrorist attacks that have caused disruptions in the life of the country. Why then is a considerable part of those who consider themselves on the left,...

She “had no explicit message of her own,” Politico noted, while The Economist pronounced it “underwhelming.” MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was so frustrated by Clinton’s 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 she’s a robot!” The coverage of Clinton’s speech seemed to contain more meditation about how...

    "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...

Dinesh D’Souza recalled that the left’s strategy with his first political documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” was to ignore it. “You would almost not know ’2016′ existed if you just followed the leftist press and their Internet blogs,” D’Souza told WND in an exclusive phone interview. “It was only when the pied piper Obama came out yelling that everybody else on...

    I imagine the horrified shrieks that rose from the streets outside the Supreme Court on Monday as the decision in the Hobby Lobby case began to filter out into the crowd of liberal observers was reminiscent of those poor souls who watched helplessly as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed the lives of 146 young, female garment workers. In fact, the similarities are eerie. It seems that liberal commentators have convinced themselves that, just as was the case in 1911, the courts and the country have deemed women to be of lesser value than their male counterparts.

    One of the current liberal cliches tells us “whites” are privileged. The color of their skin evidently bestows benefits others do not receive. They are therefore supposed to be grateful and defer to those who are less fortunate. But in what does this “privilege” consist? Yes, whites have not been discriminated against the way African-Americans have. They have not been denied jobs or forced to drink from separate fountains because of the pigmentation of their epidermis. This is surely an advantage — but how big an advantage? Charges of white privilege make it sound as if every Caucasian is automatically...

    Republican secretary of state candidate Scott Morgan on Thursday took aim at incumbent Kris Kobach for helping rocker and gun rights activist Ted Nugent and Texas officials pass a law making it easier to hunt feral pigs from helicopters. "The self-appointed Guardian of State Sovereignty needs to stop shooting pigs from helicopters in Texas with Ted Nugent and start focusing on his job in Kansas," said Morgan, of Lawrence, who will face Kobach in the Aug. 5 Republican Party primary. Morgan and other critics of Kobach say he spends too much time advocating around the country for anti-illegal immigration laws...

    You can see the video of this speech by clicking on the "Enza Ferreri Blog" link above. Here is the transcript. Vote for Liberty GB in the European Elections on the 22nd of May because Liberty GB is the only credible party that can change what's wrong, since it's the only party which has clear ideas about what caused it. Today's major symptoms of the disease that affects Britain – mass immigration, Islamisation, multiculturalism – have been caused by the Left's cultural dominance in Britain – as all over the West – over the past 50-60 years. Uncontrolled immigration –...

    Most conservatives, and just about all independents, have a huge misperception of the left. They think that the gulf between conservatism and leftism is primarily about means, not goals. This perception is wrong. It is their goals that are irreconcilable. And until conservatives, independents and the Republican Party understand this, it will not be possible to defeat the left. Take economic indicators. Most conservatives talk and act as if bad economic news disturbs the left as much as it disturbs them. It doesn't. Almost everywhere the left is in control -- in California, for example -- the economic news is...

    The Left adores its "racism" narrative. It is practically the only narrative they have left, and they have used it repeatedly like a cheap prostitute at a party for sex addicts. One of the cheapest political whores on the national scene is Dirty Harry "Cleanface" Reid, the ignoble, utterly corrupt U.S. Senate Majority "Leader." Harry has now added his wormy voice to the cacaphony of leftist sluts calling Cliven Bundy "racist." Let's get our facts straight. The Left is able to promote this narrative for two main reasons: 1. they lie. 2. the media repeats the lie. So let's dissect...

    The entire article is published here. I would appreciate if you can click the link to my blog (which opens in a new tab) to allow me to measure interest. I run no ads, and I make no money on this. Political correctness is increasingly morphing into a more hideous monster hiding just beneath the surface.  Fully abandoning the decades-old dream of a classless society, the Left is embracing its opposite:  a caste system, complete with pedigrees, credentials, and the benefits of membership in the ruling caste.  Of course, this caste system places the progressive elite at the top, as...

    In his column last week, Charles Krauthammer crossed a line. He declared the American left totalitarian. He is correct. Totalitarianism is written into the left's DNA. Krauthammer wrote about a left-wing petition "bearing more than 110,000 signatures delivered to the [Washington] Post demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming." He concluded: "I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation -- no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper...

    Patriot Update ^ | Tuesday, April 1, 2014 | J. Matt Barber
    A preferred ploy of left-wing change agents is to ridicule critics when they point out the undeniable parallels between the goals of today’s “progressive” movement, to include the Democratic Party in general, and the goals of the early, and very much still alive, communist movement.If, for instance, one mentions the historical fact that nearly every adult who, at any time, was in any position of influence over a young, soon-to-be-radicalized Barry Soetoro was an avowed communist, to include his own parents, then one is immediately mocked and dismissed as a neo-McCarthyite hack pining for the bygone days of the Red...

    Chuck Morse Speaks ^ | April 6, 2014 | Chuck Morse
    So says Chuck Morse, the author of Was Hitler a Leftist?. Morse predicts things will get uglier and crazier as the mid-term election approaches. Obama’s coalition of public employees, welfare recipients, old leftists and crony capitalists will fear a major setback as Republicans will be poised to take the Senate majority and increase their margin in the House. They have gone to the well too many times with the nasty and utterly bogus charges against their opponents of war on women racism and homophobia asserts Morse. Even many liberals, Morse speculates, who were once fooled by the cynical identity politics...

    Sinclair Lewis was wrong—when fascism came to America, it was actually wrapped in a rainbow flag and wearing an ascot. How else can one describe the ongoing left-wing commitment to the stamping out of free speech, whenever that speech contradicts the gay agenda, as well as other parts of the “progressive” platform? With the resignation of newly minted Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, the “progressive” Left, especially its social wing, has once again shown itself to be the enforcers a political correctness in speech and thought that ought to be chilling to any person who actually cares about individual liberty. It’s...

    Remember Julie Boonstra? She’s the single mother fighting leukemia who appeared in an anti-Obamacare television ad running in Michigan: (see video at link) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid assailed Ms. Boonstra, and others like her, in a breathtakingly mean-spirited floor speech — going so far as to say that “all” of their negative experiences were “untrue” and “lies.” Reid now claims he doesn’t remember saying any such thing, but there’s video tape: (see Reid video at link) In his effort to discredit Boonstra, Reid relied on a Washington Post “fact check,” which effectively ruled her story half true. In fact,...
