  • Russell Simmons Endorses Hillary Because We Have To Eat Plants Or We All Will Die

    The Federalist Papers ^ | 3/ | Robert Gehl
    Russell Simmons is a “hip-hop media mogul” (maybe that’s on his business card) and I guess his endorsement carries some weight because CNN reported it like it was breaking news. But that’s where any semblance of normalcy or reality ends because Russell Simmons is crazy. In the CNN interview, he announced he is endorsing his “longtime friend” Hillary Clinton. Why? Well … Let’s let Mr. Simmons explain: “I have just decided to endorse my longtime friend Sen. Clinton,” Simmons said. “I think that Sen. Sanders is overpromising; he’s insensitive to the plight of black people.” Bernie Sanders is insensitive to...

    ... the Bundy militia members occupying a federal wildlife preserve in Burns, Oregon are motivated by the very same mix of resentments and hobby horses that are driving the Donald Trump movement. Both Trump's supporters and the Bundy agitators are moved by an unsubtly racialized sense of entitlement, a belief that federal benefits and giveaways are great when going to conservative white people but illegitimate if they go to anyone else, especially people of color. As David Roberts at Vox recently pointed out, Trump supporters aren't motivated by some ideological opposition to the concept of government benefits. They are perfectly...
  • 38 Ways College Students Enjoy ‘Left-Wing Privilege’ on Campus

    Among the great ironies surrounding the state of academia is the continued insistence on hearing more and more “marginalized voices” and increasing “diversity” on campus, as if there is some kind of archaic conservative establishment making that difficult to do. One would likely be hard-pressed to find a more left-leaning group than college professors and admissions officers, who prioritize pulling marginalized groups out of their marginalization and adding people of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds to campus conversations. Yet in their efforts to achieve a more egalitarian conversation, left-wing academics and their students completely ignore (at best) and marginalize (at...

    A national evangelical Christian leader has written that his fellow believers should vote for Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, because she will radically reduce the abortion rate. Hillary, in whose campaign abortion industry lobbyists play a conspicuous role, favors abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy. Yet Tony Campolo believes a second Clinton presidency will halve the number of abortions nationwide. “Hillary Clinton is one of the few candidates on the political stage who has a plan for cutting the abortion rate in America by at least 50 percent,” Campolo, a sociology professor emeritus at Eastern University, wrote in a debate on Religion News...

    I want to preface this by saying that Berkeley is not for everyone. You have to have a high tolerance for eccentricities of all types. You have to love a little chaos. And you have to accept that things will always be a bit messy. But, if you're the type of person who doesn't mind insanity, Berkeley is a wonderland. Berkeley has a well-earned reputation for its over-the-top liberalism which can sometimes mask its finest quality: diversity. From its various neighborhoods to its endless ethnic cuisine, Berkeley is as interesting and weird as its inhabitants. Dirty and scruffy on the...

    Stevenson College is apologizing to its students for serving Mexican food during "Intergalactic" night. In a letter sent out to students, the college apologized for having "a Mexican food buffet," while also featuring spaceships and aliens. The college received complaints saying the combination was racist because of the association between Mexicans and illegal immigrants. "We would never want to make a connection between individuals of Latino heritage or undocumented students and "aliens" and I am so sorry that our College Night appeared to do exactly that," wrote Carolyn Golz, who had taken this picture of the activities before the complaints:...

Angeletti, who teaches at Metropolitan State University of Denver, has students learn an anti-American spoof of the Pledge of Allegiance that denounces the U.S. as a Republican-controlled bastion of injustice, all while spewing his own far-left brand of politics, according to current and former students.

    Michael Chapman at our sister site CNSNews.com reported that Hollywood director Rob Reiner unleashed another anti-Tea Party rant in an interview with Larry King. He compared the Tea Party to the terrorist group Hamas, because apparently both groups are extreme and cannot be negotiated with, and the only solution is to make them go away or “eliminate” them. In Israel, “[Y]ou can’t negotiate with that, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two-state solution,” said Reiner.

    Gwyneth Paltrow is causing controversy again with a statement on her lifestyle website Goop about her belief that water might have feelings. The 41-year-old actress, who recently split from her husband Chris Martin, endorsed the work of Japanese doctor Masuru Emoto, who has published several books on the theory that human consciousness can change the structure of water. "I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water," Paltrow wrote on her blog. "How the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."

Citing declassified CIA documents and interviews with former officials, the magazine reviewed the US record as Washington weighs military action against Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons near Damascus last week. The magazine said the US knew in 1983 that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein would not hesitate to resort to shelling Iranian forces with sarin or mustard gas. "As Iraqi attacks continue and intensify...

Lawmakers have passed a series of bills since 2007 to root out gender bias from Washington statutes, though a 1983 state mandate required that all laws be written in gender-neutral terms unless a specification of gender was intended. "This was a much larger effort than I had envisioned. Mankind means man and woman," said Democratic state Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles of Seattle. The new gender-neutral references, for...

    House Democrats took to the floor on Wednesday, characterizing a provision for disaster-relief in the GOP's short-term spending measure as “stingy” and a “disgrace.” Democrats oppose the provision for $3.7 billion in disaster relief because Republicans have offset the funds by cutting from a fuel-efficiency program, the Department of Energy’s Advanced Vehicle Manufacturing Loan Program. Democrats say they won't support the bill because the cuts will hurt job creation. In a floor speech, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) deemed the Republican’s FEMA bill “frugal and cheap.” Criticizing the bill for its offsets from the DOE program, Ellison said the bill “is...

The billboards feature such slogans as "The 13th Amendment Freed us. Abortion Enslaved Us" and "Abortion makes three-fifths human seem overly generous." The billboards popped up across metro Atlanta on Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. The billboards are part of a campaign targeted at persuading black women from...

Ron Paul, R-Texas, whose outspoken libertarian views and folksy style made him a cult hero during two previous presidential campaigns, will announce on Tuesday that he's going to try a third time. Sources close to Paul, who is in his 12th term in the House, said he will unveil an exploratory presidential committee, a key step in gearing up for a White House race. He will also unveil the campaign’s leadership team in Iowa, where the first votes of the presidential election will be cast in caucuses next year.

    Great animated video from XtraNormal that shows the utter hypocrisy of liberals, concerning the Obama eligibility issue. It also explains the foundational issues involved, but with real humor. Another great video from these guys.
  • Did DailyKos destroy evidence?

    Can someone enlighten me whether the DailyKos owner can be arrested for destroying evidence in the Giffords shooting case if it turns out that BoyBlue is indeed the shooter? It is clear now that the shooter loved the Communist Manifeso and is an ardent leftist. Also, Giffords is Jewish and we know the anti-Semitism that pervades liberals. Remember Helen Thomas? So all this clearly proves that liberalism is the reason for the shooting. If BoyBlue is indeed the shooter, then DailyKos is clearly guilty of abetting a crime by destroying evidence about the person's true motives.

    “As a public university, Wayne State encourages free speech and open dialogue, and respects diverse viewpoints,” the statement said. “However, the university strongly condemns the anti-Semitic remarks made by Helen Thomas during a conference yesterday.”

    After I reported last night that the Sharron Angle campaign had had a banner day fundraising, which the campaign attributed to the fact that The View co-host Joy Behar said of Angle on national television, “She’s going to hell, this bitch!” This morning, the Angle campaign tells me they sent flowers and a thank you note to Behar: Joy, Raised 150K online yesterday– thanks for your help. Sincerely, Sharron Angle.

    Opponents of the Tea Party movement tried responding to the conservative grassroots movement nicely -- by creating the inclusive, deliberative Coffee Party. But now they're ready to get mean. A new progressive group called the Agenda Project has launched the "F*ck Tea" campaign. "Progress is the real American party," reads the campaign website's tag line. "Set aside your good manners, your tolerance, your measured understanding of policy differences, and your earnest do-gooder ideas for a just a moment to join me in telling the Tea Party what you really think of them," Agenda Project founder Erica Payne said in a...

    <p>It's possible that Sarah Palin's best quality is that she has none at all. She exists for both her friends and enemies as a fantasy figure. For the left, she is a harbinger of the hard-right government takeover they fear is coming. And for the right, she is the leader - all instinct and no sophistication - that they knew would someday lead America out of its current Socialist wilderness. The pity for them both is that in reality, not to mention the polls, she sorely disappoints.</p>
