    America seems to be in big trouble. Not only are there demonstrations that at times turn violent and destructive, differences are impacting families and friendships that previously have weathered many divisive elections. It may not yet be a red vs blue civil war, but anger is real. Disagreement has given way to distance and heated dissension. Daniel J. Boorstin, the University of Chicago American historian, wrote: “Disagreement produces debate but dissent produces dissension. Dissent (which come from the Latin, ‘dis’ and ‘sentire’) means originally to ‘feel apart from others.’ People who disagree have an argument, but people who dissent have...

    For years, left-wingers would contest my use of the term "open borders lobby" because, they sternly rebuked me, nooooobody in America seriously believes in open borders. Whelp. This weekend, thousands of anti-Trump liberals took to the streets, airports and college campuses chanting "all are welcome" and shrieking "let them in" to protest White House executive orders enforcing our borders. In case their position wasn't clear enough, the mobs bellowed: "No borders, no nations, f--- deportations!" "No walls, no borders, f--- executive orders!" Militant mayors in Seattle, Denver and New York City re-declared themselves open-borders sanctuaries -- or as I call...
  • Electoral College members from Pa. issued state police protection: Report

    Members of the Electoral College from Pennsylvania say they are receiving thousands of phone calls and emails from around the world ahead of Monday's vote in Harrisburg, according to a report from Philly.com. One elector told the website that each elector has been assigned a plain clothes state police trooper for protection. "Such has been the life of Pennsylvania's 20 electors for President-elect Donald Trump since the Nov. 8 election," according to the report. The state's electors will convene inside the state House chamber at the Capitol at 12 p.m. to cast their votes.

    ‘What Trump Calls PC,’ We Call ‘Being a Good Person’ Rabbis are planning an unprecedented walkout during 2016 GOP frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump’s speech before American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington D.C. on Monday evening — and now the rabbi leading the protest is explaining why he’s doing it. “Rock and roll” Rabbi David Paskin — the planned protest’s leader — explained why he is organizing this effort in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. “This is about denouncing hatred in all forms,” Paskin said late Sunday. “Everyone here at AIPAC denounces hatred. What is far more...

    What if McCain/Palin won, then McCain died -- and a terror attack followed. Apocalyptic fiction from a nightmare It is obvious in retrospect that only an external attack like that on 7/22 could have saved the Palin presidency. Without it, would any of what followed have happened? I doubt it. The Democrats would have recaptured both the White House and Senate that fall. The culture wars would have simmered on, but the evangelical movement’s momentum on the path toward political power would have been lost. I would be installed in my corner office downtown, practicing law. I would probably have...

    The House on Friday morning rejected a Democratic resolution citing House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) for running a biased investigation against Attorney General Eric Holder, and for conducting a "witch-hunt" against Holder. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) brought up the resolution saying Issa's investigation "discredits the integrity of the House," after which Republicans quickly made a motion to table the resolution. That GOP motion was approved on a 259-161 vote. More than 20 Democrats voted with Republicans.

    Black caucus to stage walkout during Holder contempt vote in HouseBy Jordy Yager - 06/27/12 06:57 PM ET Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) plan to stage a walkout during Thursday’s vote on whether to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. The CBC is scheduled to meet at 10 a.m. on Thursday to discuss the details of the walkout and is planning to circulate a letter to House Democrats requesting that they join them on the Capitol steps for a press conference during the contempt vote. The move comes less than 24 hours before the House...

    One of the biggest pet peeves of your humble correspondent is so-called journalists who continue to absurdly claim that there is no evidence that one of the purposes for gunwalking in Operation Fast and Furious was to advance a gun control agenda. Last week the culprit was Jillian Rayfield of Rolling Stone and now Steve Kornacki of Salon and MSNBC is the latest liberal to display his reality challenged assertion on this subject: The question is why the NRA has decided to emphasize the Holder vote. The group’s official explanation, believe it or not, involves conspiracy theory – the idea...

    Bill Maher said Friday, "Republicans don't care about dead Mexicans." This came moments after he admitted on HBO's Real Time he didn't know anything about the controversial White House mission known as Fast and Furious "until this week" (video follows with transcript and commentary): Bill Maher: 'Republicans Don't Care About Dead Mexicans' BILL MAHER: I mentioned the Fast and Furious in the monologue and I really didn't explain it to people who don't know. And by the way, I was one of those people until this week who didn't know. Why doesn’t it surprise me a dunce like Bill Maher...

    U.S. Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi lobs yet another preposterous attack upon Republican House leaders, claiming that the House Committee Contempt Vote against Attorney General Eric Holder was manufactured by the leadership as a political payback for the Obama administration’s attempt to circumvent state laws which require display of state IDs when voting. In fact congressional Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C. has labeled this fanciful notion as, “Hogwash.” His fellow South Carolinian republican congressional representative Trey Gowdy went a few steps further and labeled Pelosi’s delusional allegations, "mind-numbingly stupid," according to Fox News. It is abundantly clear that democrat leaders like...

    Pelosi: Republicans are attacking Holder to help states purge voter rollsBy Mike Lillis - 06/21/12 01:40 PM ET Republicans are attacking Attorney General Eric Holder to help states purge their voting rolls ahead of November's elections, the top House Democrat charged Thursday. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday's committee vote to hold Holder in contempt of Congress — and next week's scheduled floor vote on the same resolution — represent a thinly veiled Republican scheme to distract the attorney general from his fight against state laws that have erected new hurdles to voting and registration, hurdles that would...

    A Twitter user asked the drummer last night, “you don’t think indirectly calling a guest on your show a ‘bitch’ might blow up in your face? & maybe it should? (I’m a democrat)”. Here was the response. Fallon himself tweeted a few hours ago that the drummer is “grounded” but we’ll have to wait ’til tonight’s show to find out if that means anything more than “please stop yelling at me about Bachmann.”

    Know what doesn't go over well with advertisers? Making fun of disabled children. On April 18, political blog Wonkette published a post titled "Greatest Living American: A Children's Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday" (none of which we will quote here). Trig, for those who don't remember, is Sarah Palin's youngest son, who has Down Syndrome. The initial response to this "celebration" of Trig's birthday was limited to comments getting in on the action, contributing the sort of jokes that would make Gilbert Gottfried proud. But then, according to Slate's David Weigel, conservative bloggers stumbled across it and the...

    <snip>2.4 Diagnosis #4: The Attraction of Magnificent Academic Trusels. A "trusel" is an idea or a finding that is widely perceived to be true, but which is largely useless (or even of negative value). (The idea that a truth may lack value may be disturbing, but it is true, although it is not a trusel and probably will not be thought to be magnificent.) A "Magnificent Academic Trusel" (MAT) is a trusel that has been widely acknowledged for its intellectual content (explicitly or implicitly), but without a corresponding amount of attention being given to its utility or even to its...

    05/15/2007 Petition Impossible? By: Steven J. Ferrari Outside, despite the drizzling rain and cloudy skies, a few dozen people gathered at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on The Commons in Ithaca to vocalize a common goal: the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. The weather on this Saturday in late April did nothing to dissuade the spirits of those in attendance. They listened intently to speakers and cheered along to songs calling for the ousting of the duo. The rally on the afternoon of April 28 wasn't the only one held in the United States...

    As a Supreme Court justice, Sandra Day O'Connor exasperated critics by balancing on a reed-thin beam without planting her feet firmly on either side. But in retirement, she doesn't equivocate in defense of judicial independence. She has crossed the country warning that "spurious" attacks on the judiciary -- by politicians and other talking heads -- threaten judges' doing their jobs without fear or favor. When federal appellate Judge Danny Boggs said at a Friday legal conference at Las Colinas that physical assaults aimed at judges have come mainly from "the deranged," O'Connor underscored the safety concerns. "Every member of the...
