  • The Left's Dirty Secret - They Hate You. Yes, YOU.

    Flopping Aces ^ | 02-09-16 | Brother Bob
    One of the more maddening elements of our political debate is how both sides view the individual, and how they treat them. Conservative ideals are based on individual responsibility, and in turn the state showing respect for that individual. On the flip side, as we saw in our last chapter, the Radical Left despises the individual, and will always put the state ahead of individual rights1. What's maddening is how despite their contempt for the individual, the Radical Left does an outstanding job of exploiting personal stories to push their agenda, while the side that puts respect for the...

    As the battle for the Republican nomination for president shifts to South Carolina, all wings of the GOP, establishment and tea party conservative, are wrestling with the existential problem of how to stop Donald Trump. Trump, who won a convincing victory in New Hampshire, threatens to run the table by racking up enough wins to quickly amass enough delegates to lock down the nomination. The Club for Growth, an economic conservative group, has launched one of the first shots with an ad that attacks Trump’s conservatism and his character.

    The only chivalrous actions today are the ones which involve verbal shivs that the unvalorous contending candidates keep digging into their opponent's ribs. As a kid growing up, I got a political education from my father who was a small town newspaper editor in Pennsylvania. I thought I knew all about the processes, twists and turns of the political jungle. How wrong I was! The world’s wars in the years from the early ‘40s up through ‘70s caused me to leave them, and when those and my military service were completed, I found myself in New England. Now quite a...

    Bernie Sanders placed second in the Iowa caucus, edged out by .6% and a half dozen suspicious coin flips by the Hillary camp. He then crushed Hillary in New Hampshire. Though I believe electing either would be a mistake, Bernie Sanders is of the greatest concern to me. Bernie Sanders is a Communist who admits to being a Democratic Socialist, a term that has little if any meaning to most people. Socialism as a pure definition means the control of all production by a central government. It has been a massively destructive failure everywhere it has been tried. Democratic Socialists...

    Part of the Donald Trump appeal is that he is a great businessman, and he certainly has taken his dad's business and grown it to big heights. But Trump is less of a business manager, and more of a marketing genius-a PT Barnum. He knows what to say and do to promote. It's why he is leading in the polls, and why he gets all the free airtime from the media. His record as a COO/Manager, etc. is uneven. He has built businesses and he has destroyed them, as witnessed by his four bankruptcies. The Donald will correctly say he...

    The coal mining industry is in trouble and the Supreme Court holds the industries fate in its hands. Coal has been suffering for years under the dual attack of environmentalists and low natural gas prices. Environmentalists have been pushing utility companies to stop using coal, while low natural gas prices have led many utilities to switch to that cleaner burning and now cheaper fuel as a power source. In an effort to please environmentalist supporters after his election to a second term, the Obama Administration put in place what might be a death sentence for coal mining east of the...

So far, nothing’s materialized but, thanks to a “splintered” Democrat base, the rumors never really died down. In fact, they’ve grown even louder on the heels of Hillary’s New Hampshire defeat. The thinking on the left is that, if she can’t beat the socialist crypt-keeper, she has no chance against an energetic GOP. That may or may not be true, but it’s causing the former New York City Mayor to rattle the third-party saber - and the DNC...

    Contrary to what some bloggers (many of whom support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign) and the Internet rumor mill have been saying, Sen.

Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...

As the international coalition in Iraq may be tightening their grip over ISIS, another very dangerous phenomenon spiraling out of control are the Iran-backed Shiite militias roaming freely on killing sprees across Mesopotamia. This is a dire menace called Islamic extremism that can threaten the very fabric of this once iconic cradle of humanity. True is the undeniable fact that ISIS...

    There's a clean question on the table regarding dual citizenship for persons born in Canada prior to 1977 (when they changed their law to officially recognize dual nationality.) Prior to that date, with few exceptions, you could not hold dual nationality with Canada. In other words the very act of "renouncing" Canadian Citizenship means that Cruz never held US citizenship at birth because his parents had to declare his nationality at the time he was born. There may be exceptions that were available at the time but the law now is immaterial. The only material fact is what the law...

    Politicians tailor their messages to different audiences. Facing New Hampshire's primary, Ted Cruz talked more about "free-market principles" and a "commitment to the Constitution" and said "no one personality can right the wrongs done by Washington." Politico ran the headline "Ted Cruz, born-again libertarian." I'm skeptical. Campaigning in Iowa, Cruz had emphasized religion and social conservatism. But politicians no longer just target voters state-by-state -- they target by person. Last election, President Obama beat Mitt Romney partly by doing just that. Obama had 50 people working in data analytics. Romney had four....

    An OPEC production cut is unlikely until U.S. production declines by about another million barrels per day (mmbpd). OPEC won’t cut because it would accomplish nothing beyond a short-term increase in price. Carefully placed comments by OPEC and Russian oil ministers about the possibility of production cuts achieve almost the same price increase as an actual cut.

    Ouch Yesterday, a half hour before her defeat in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a three-page memo. It was designed to reassure the Hillary-faithful that, despite her impending loss, she was still a viable candidate. It had the opposite effect on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: “Hillary Clinton had the Democratic Party establishment. She still has their endorsements, but he has out-raised her in January. He now will have a ton of money on those online contributions in February, and the Clinton team anticipated this with this three-page memo.”

    'Special places' being brought online Ladies, you were warned. Last week, Madeline Albright told you that there was a “special place in hell” for women who don’t support Hillary. She did her best to make sure you knew about the horrific spiritual dangers that stem from voting for Bernie Sanders, and we did our best to get the message out. Yet, for whatever reason, you decided to ignore the eternal damnation of your mortal soul. Last night, women chose - in massive numbers - to turn their backs on Hillary Clinton. According to anonymous torment-industry sources Hell is gearing up...

    Obama's favorite JV team has chemical weapon and a new home in which to grow, courtesy of Hillary Clinton. In testimony before the Armed Serves Committee DNI James Clapper confirmed that ISIS has produced and used chemical weapons.

The confirmation of mustard gas use came during Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he spoke to...

    Donald Trump won the New Hampshire Primary and he made sure to savor his victory to the full. The bleeding that resulted from his loss in Iowa and his subsequent unseemly reaction to it has been staunched, at least for the time being.

    As the Republican primary process heads south, with the next stop in South Carolina, an important factor will be lurking just below the surface: The Democrat voters’ thirst for free stuff now, free stuff tomorrow and free stuff forever. The support for Comrade Bernie Sanders among young people, who by definition have always been pampered and paid for, shows a lop-sided tilt toward the lure of something for nothing. A final pre-New Hampshire survey among 18 to 30 year olds showed nearly 90% backed Sanders, a man who has promised everything with little mention of how these “goodies” would be...

    All hail the winners! The Donald wants to make America great again,And The Bern, bless his little heart, wants to make it fair.He’s the one you’ve been waiting 74 years for?The Bern thinks our country was founded on “fairness.” No wonder he doesn’t believe in individual liberty. So he’s fomenting a Communist revolution in order to make America fair again and apparently the best way to do that is to take stuff away from some people and give it to some other people. In his gracious acceptance speech he specified things he thinks should be free in order to make...

    February 10, 2016 New Hampshire Consequences and The GOPe Road Map Moving Forwardby sundance Last night was a Donald Trump win, period. A YUGE win. For context: Donald Trump beat second place, John Kasich, by more votes (currently 51,000) than Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton (currently 50,000).A resounding victory for the vulgarian rebel alliance. Today, rejoice, dance well, be of good cheer and enjoy.However, come sunrise we meet at the old mill, and ride south.What does last night mean for the GOPe road map? That’s where it gets interesting.Forget John Kasich; he is irrelevant as an individual candidate. Kasich has...

    When socialists dance Let’s start with the Democrats. That’s more fun. The doddering, wild-eyed socialist was expected to beat the entitled liar, but this was quite the beating: Bernie 60 percent; Hillary 38 percent. Now yeah, it was expected that Bernie would win New Hampshire considering he’s from next-door Vermont and the two states are like one of those yin yangs liberals like, without the dot in the middle, and without the roundness, and without . . . OK, never mind the yin yang. But did anyone expect Hillary to lose by 22 points? Remember, she actually beat Obama here...
