  • Donald Trump Hires Pro-Life Advocate as Top Domestic Policy Director

    Likely Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is winning praise from pro-life advocates for hiring a top pro-life advocate as a key domestic policy advisory. The presumptive GOP nominee hired long-time conservative congressional aide John Mashburn as his policy director. Mashburn is pro-life and has worked for pro-life lawmakers including the late Sen. Jesse Helms, former Senate Republican leader Trent Lott and current North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis. As the Washington Examiner reports, pro-life groups see the move as Trump making serious overtures to pro-life voters and hail it as Trump indicating he will govern in a pro-life manner if elected...

  • From Nixon to Clinton

    05/05/2016 1:16:46 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 10 replies
    I’ve been saying for months that Donald Trump is the George McGovern of the GOP, the fractious leader who so alienated the elders of his party that they deserted him in droves, handing the election to his opponent. We’re already seeing the signs. Clinton has begun casting her candidacy in recent days as a cry to unify a divided country. After a series of victories last week, which all but ensured she will capture her party’s nomination, Clinton called on Democrats, independents and what she called “thoughtful Republicans” to back her bid.

  • Jerry Brown raises California smoking age to 21, tightens vaping rules

    05/05/2016 11:11:45 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 25 replies
    Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday enacted California’s most significant new tobacco regulations in decades, signing laws that will place tight restrictions on use of the increasingly popular e-cigarette and make California the second state to raise its smoking age to 21. Brown signed five closely watched bills, which will also expand smoking restrictions in the workplace and on school properties. California now joins jurisdictions like Hawaii, New York City and San Francisco that have bumped the tobacco-buying age to 21 in an effort to block young people’s route to obtaining tobacco. But Brown vetoed one measure that would have allowed...

    Democrat pollster Doug Schoen told America’s Newsroom that Hillary Clinton blew $4 million to study how to defeat Donald Trump. She still has no clue on how to handle Trump and is terrified. Doug Schoen: Bill, you reported before that she spent $4 million on research. That’s what I do for a living. I don’t have a sense that she’s figured out with all that money spent how to approach and how to handle Donald Trump. And I think Trump is right, low road, high road Trump can win… If you spent four million dollars to try to figure out...

Discussing the race for president, Reid said he was confident that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton would win the party's nomination and then the general election. He stressed her intelligence and ability to grasp the issues on a wide variety of subjects. Reid harshly criticized Republican front-runner Donald Trump, saying that he "can't imagine how the establishment Republicans feel about somebody who’s about as far from anything that anyone believes in as Donald Trump.

    Ibrahim Barda'aya had turned 54 and he was still single so he decided to go out and kill some Jews. But Ibrahim wasn't just a violent anti-Semitic racist. He was also lonely. According to his Imam, he wanted to die and get his 72 virgins in the afterlife. And he had stayed single to avoid the temptations of earthly women so that he could enjoy the 72 virgins who are 90 feet tall and so "white" that you can see the "marrow of their bones," who never urinate or menstruate, get pregnant or complain. In Pakistan, an arrested suicide bomber...

    TOWNSEND, Mass. —A 225-pound pig that attacked and seriously injured a man less than two hours after attacking a woman at a Massachusetts farm will be put down. Townsend Police Chief Robert M. Eaton Jr. said his department was investigating "two very unfortunate farm incidents" in the town about 50 miles northwest of Boston. Police and emergency responders were called to the farm Tuesday evening for a report of an injured woman. "I need an ambulance. My husband is not home and my pig just literally attacked me," Shannon Hernandez told a 911 dispatcher. "Your what?" the dispatcher asked. "My...

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has received more than $7,000 worth of gifts since he took office in January 2015, mostly modest trinkets and items from well-wishers after the governor made his cancer diagnosis public. The gifts range from a $1 Livestrong bracelet to a $500 membership at Baltimore’s posh members-only Center Club, according to a filing with the State Ethics Commission. Hogan even reported two rosaries blessed at the Vatican, given to him and his wife by Pope Francis in Washington. The disclosure also shows the outpouring of support for the governor after he announced in June that he...

    U.S. companies added jobs at the slowest pace in three years in April, a private survey found, a sign that slower growth and volatile financial markets could weigh on hiring. Payroll processor ADP said Wednesday that businesses added 156,000 jobs in April, down from 194,000 in March. Manufacturers shed 11,000 jobs, after losing 3,000 the previous month. Services firms added 166,000, down from 189,000. The slowdown was also driven by weaker hiring at medium and larger companies. Small businesses added jobs at the same pace as previous months. …

    Newt Gingrich went on with Sean Hannity tonight after the Donald Trump’s Indiana blowout and after Ted Cruz suspended his campaign. Newt argued that Donald Trump could be the “the most effective anti-left leader in our lifetime.” Newt added that anyone who does not support Trump is supporting Hillary. First of all, Donald Trump may turn out to be the most effective anti-left leader in our lifetime. He is against political correctness. He is against bureaucracy. He places American nationalism first which I think we desperately need. I’m tired of being told we have to phony agreements and phony efforts...

    With yet another push from President Obama to revive initiatives to develop “smart gun” technology, it looks like it’s time to revisit the issue once again. The most common question I got in response to my previous piece on the many problems with smart guns is, “even if you’re correct that smart guns are a bad idea, why is the NRA so opposed to letting the market even try to get it right?” The NRA’s official position is that they don’t care one way or the other about smart gun tech, and that the market should decide, but we all...

    Ted Cruz -- attempting to hold on to the narrowing possibility that he can wrest the GOP nomination away from front-runner Donald Trump -- faces a crucial Indiana primary on Tuesday. Meanwhile, and perhaps ominously for Cruz, he has run into headwinds among Republicans at the national level. His image has essentially nosedived over the past week or two, while Trump's image has become more positive. Republicans' views of Cruz are now the worst in Gallup's history of tracking the Texas senator. His image among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents is at 39% favorable and 45% unfavorable, based on April 24-30...

NPR reported [1] Thursday that Foxx, who was raised by his grandparents in Charlotte, N.C. and became the city’s mayor before President Barack Obama appointed him to Transportation secretary, said highways were designed to deliberately hurt certain residents. “I didn’t realize it as a kid,” Foxx said of the interstate highways snaking through that state. “I didn’t think about it as economic barriers, psychological barriers...

    The mid-late 1950s… Could there be a more optimistic time in United States history? I feel there’s no better rifle to illustrate the industry, innovation, and unbridled optimism of that time than the Armalite AR-10 7.62x51mm select-fire military rifle. Made of aerospace materials, using an advanced operating mechanism, and weighing in at an inadvisably light 7 pounds and change, unloaded, the AR-10 was an exercise in logic of the type best said “we have defeated Germany and Japan, and split the atom, why shouldn’t we do this?”

  • Barbara Boxer: Carly Fiorina Pick Shows Ted Cruz ‘Has No Judgment Whatsoever’

    Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) criticized Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for selecting former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina as his running mate, arguing the pick shows the Texas senator has “no judgment whatsoever.” Fiorina challenged Boxer for her Senate seat in 2010, and lost the election by 10 points. Boxer effectively used Fiorina’s HP tenure against her, criticizing the former CEO for laying off thousands at the California-based company and moving many jobs overseas. The failed Senate campaign loomed large over Fiorina’s foray into the 2016 presidential race, which ended shortly after underwhelming performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire...

    Imagine your seventeen-year-old daughter fighting for her life in hand-to-hand combat with battle-hardened enemy soldiers. How long would she survive? Two minutes? One minute? There is a resurgent movement to push female military personnel into ever more intimate contact with hostile forces. The few arguments mustered in support of doing this focus narrowly on manpower issues or misplaced feminist vanity. In all the literature on this subject that I have collected over several years, not once have I found a proponent of women in combat who would speak honestly about the consequences of thrusting our daughters into man-against-woman festivals of...

Here's where their work together began, two decades ago. For what it's worth, Cruz downplayed their relationship Thursday in his comments responding to Boehner. "I've met John Boehner two or three times in my life," he assured. As we show below, that's not entirely accurate.

    It seems GQ wanted to play fast and loose with the truth about GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s wife, Melania. GQ did a story where it mentioned it talked to members of Melania’s past including family members and without permission wrote about a brother she claims to have never known about. Trump asked the publisher to respect her father’s wishes for privacy but that didn’t happen. The journalist also wrote Melania’s father being investigated for tax evasion which Melania denied. I think that set her off forcing her to address this on Facebook to many of her fans who support her...

    Donald Wolfe said he would walk there from his apartment on West 50th Street in Manhattan — 38 steps to the elevator, 54 steps through the lobby, 75 steps down the block to the corner and 37 steps across Eighth Avenue. First he put the jug with the water on his wheelchair. His oxygen tank was already in place, on the back. Off he went, pushing the wheelchair, a transport device for the garden supplies if not, at the moment, the gardener. He was not shuffling. Not shambling. But not speedwalking, either. “We’re so dry right now,” said Mr. Wolfe,...
  • A Brother’s Mental Illness Influenced John Kasich’s Views

    PITTSBURGH — Gov. John Kasich often speaks about mental health in his campaign for president. He has defended his decision to expand Medicaid in Ohio by highlighting its benefits for mentally ill residents. He is probably the only Republican candidate this year to ask a crowd, “Do you know what it’s like for somebody to live with depression?” The question, posed at a rally in upstate New York recently, threw a hush over a room of 1,000 people. Mr. Kasich went on: “There are people here who know exactly what I’m talking about.” Mr. Kasich is one who knows. His...

    So much for the “evolving” Donald Trump – the real thing was back on display last evening at Trump Tower. “I wanna thank the media,” he said. “The media has covered me very fairly – the last two hours!” After last night, you can now refer to Lyin’ Ted Cruz as Dyin’ Ted. If AMC made a series about him, it would be called “The Walking Ted.” The Texas senator’s motto is TrusTed, but last night Cruz was dominaTed in Pennsylvania, humiliaTed in Rhode Island, toasTed in Connecticut, decimaTed in Delaware and just plain defeaTed in Maryland. Overall, the pride...

    A family and employees inside a Foley towing business got the shock of their lives when a twin-engine plane went down in flames just outside their office Tuesday afternoon. The sole person inside escaped with just minor injuries. Foley Municipal Airport officials confirm the twin-engine Cessna was taking off when it immediately went down near Sunset Circle and Hickory Street. The plane was on fire, but the pilot got out through the back and jumped almost 10 feet to the ground to get away. Police and airport officials said the pilot walked away with only a few burns and cuts...
  • Who Was Ty Cobb: The History We Know That's Wrong

    Ty Cobb was one of the greatest baseball players of all time and king of the so-called Deadball Era. He played in the major leagues—mostly for the Detroit Tigers but a bit for the Philadelphia Athletics—from 1905 to 1928, and was the first player ever voted into the Hall of Fame. His lifetime batting average of .366 is amazing, and has never been equaled. But for all that, most Americans think of him first as an awful person—a racist and a low-down cheat who thought nothing of injuring his fellow players just to gain another base or score a run....
  • U.N.'s secret plan for 10 times more Syrian 'refugees' [Psalms 2]

    President Obama and Congress have agreed to fund the permanent resettlement of 10,000 Syrian refugees, but the number of Syrians entering the U.S. over the next three years will end up being much larger. Possibly up to 10 times larger, says one analyst who follows the global refugee movement. And it's all about to be done under the radar of Congress with nearly zero media coverage. Fresh evidence to that effect has come from the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees Filippo Grande and a statement by the U.S. State Department. Together, those statements indicate the U.N. has many more...

    Muslims will soon outnumber Christians in Europe, a Belgian minister has claimed. Speaking at a hearing into the Brussels attacks, Koen Geens said the European Community may not realise it "but this is the reality". His comments were followed by Belgian deputy prime minister Jan Jambon warning against Europeans "making an enemy of Islam" describing it as "the worst thing we can do". Speaking at the EU Parliament, Mr Geens said: 'In Europe, very shortly we're soon going to have more practising Muslims than practising Christians' "That is not because there are too many Muslims, it is because Christian are...

    Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film. An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception. Scientists had seen the phenomenon occur in other animals but it is the first time is has been also shown to happen in humans.
  • How the state of the economy is literally killing people

    Middle-aged people laid off and unable to find work are taking another way out. They’re killing themselves. Suicide rates are soaring, according to federal data released last week. Especially in economically depressed states and job-starved upstate New York. People in need of work are twice as likely to take their own lives as employed people, and people fired in their 40s and 50s find it hardest to get hired again. That makes boosting economic growth a life-or-death issue for many. But you wouldn’t know it listening to President Obama and Hillary Clinton. President Obama whitewashes reality, claiming the “American economy...

    Dozens of Methodist leaders are objecting to Mississippi’s new religious objections law, saying it violates their religious principles. More than 30 ministers from around the state and nation published an open letter Monday saying the so-called “religious freedom” law goes against Christian teachings to love and respect all people. The group joins major businesses, human rights groups and legal experts in opposing the incoming law, which they say discriminates against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. […] Pastor Bruce Case of Madison, Mississippi, was among those who signed the letter opposing the law. He said the law creates a...
