    A Palestinian anti-Semitic blood libel about Israel and water A double crime was committed when Mahmoud Abbas, the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, an interim self-governing body that undemocratically controls the Arabs in sections of Judea & Samaria, spoke before the European Parliament on June 23. In his speech he spouted a Jew-hating blood libel as medieval in its words as those that led to the massacre and isolation of European Jews centuries ago. Having begun his speech by condemning incitement to violence, he inexplicably said;

    Pay attention, folks because the EU--someday soon to be followed by their UN cousins--are about to show you a bad case of The Uglies Bwaaaaaaaaa! The screech of outrage coming from the pinpricked pompous European Union suffering its first setback in the more than 40 years of its lavish existence. Who would ever have thought that one sunny day real life would come along and let the air out of the EU’s balloon; that the sheep would finally abandon the oppressive shepherd en masse? The naked woman riding the bull at EU Brussels headquarters has fallen into the dust.

    Judical Watch is set to depose Huma today. She can take the fifth or fall on her sword for Hillary. I doubt the latter will ocurr as things are going well for Hillary. Will Hillary be forced to testify? Will she prolong this another year or will she refuse? We know how she is dying to cooperate. The FBI/DOJ is doing nothing. Why are they waiting for Judical Watch if they know knowing will happen? Buying more time. Hillary will go down in flames if she has to testify. She knows this is the end of the road. She can...

    For all intent and purposes, these protesters asking Barack Obama for rights for "illegal" immigrants can be deported as well as the ones breaking the law, and I said it. I am against breaking families up too, send them all back, that will take care of everything. Where do these rioters and agitators get off stopping people from entering buildings and shutting down highways as a form of protesting these days? This is not a peaceable assembly as protected by the 1st Amendment. All should be arrested, thrown in jail and have to pay for all the lost time by...

    The suffragettes of the early 20th century demanded a woman’s right to vote.The Smufragettes, the 21st century heirs of that proud legacy, demand a woman’s right to have an abortion  anywhere, anytime and now apparently by anyone.I wish the Supreme Court would be half as vigilant with respect to our Second Amendment Rights – which are specifically spelled out in the Constitution - as they are abortion rights – which are derived from an “interesting,”  and unprecedented “privacy” interpretation of the 14th amendment’s equal protection clause that guarantees your right to not have your house searched without a warrant.

    Rachael Larimore, a Senior Editor at Slate, has written a unusual piece for the publication.  It is titled Bullet Points.  You can be forgiven for expecting this will be another uninformed diatribe against those evil conservatives, who if they would only stop licking the boots of their NRA masters, would allow common sense legislation to pass that would prevent crime by outlawing evil guns.  The expected would, in this case, be wrong. Ms Larimore, who has been at Slate since 2002, was, as of 2008, the only Republican at the publication.  That makes her remarkable.  She actually knows how...

    This squib began as a review of Professor Randy Barnett’s latest work, Our Republican Constitution. However, once I got into his explication of the two contradictory visions of the Constitution and what it means for Western Civilization, I decided to linger on the high points. If the Leftist avalanche of executive branch lawmaking, group rights, collegiate snowflakes, moral relativism, and horrid supreme court decisions under a Constitution designed to secure unalienable rights leaves you puzzled, then Professor Barnett’s latest book will help clarify the insanity that is modern progressivism. For those familiar with his previous works going back to The...

But I will vote for Trump in November, because as intrigued as I was early on by the NeverTrump movement, it’s clear these folks (who stand on soap boxes of personal integrity) are putting self before country. David Horowitz and Daniel Greenfield of Front Page Magazine are two conservatives among many who have been covering the urgent need to get behind Trump. Writing in forceful and eloquent ways, they are sounding the alarm, pointing out critical differences between Trump and Clinton....

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has alleged that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton received funds from Indian political leaders and institutions in return for supporting the India-US civil nuclear deal. The Trump campaign has published these allegations in a 35-page booklet, but none of them are new and they have been in the public domain for several years now. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has refuted these allegations several times in the past. In a statement, the Trump's campaign said the information provided in the booklet is an in-depth summary of the top 50 facts about Clinton's record that...

    A few additional notes regarding George Hawley’s fascinating look at dissent within the right: Notwithstanding the Trump Ascendancy, his belief that moderate libertarianism-or conservatarianism, as some have dubbed it-will exert the greatest influence over mainstream conservatism in the years ahead holds some merit. The disdain the modern conservative movement has for genuinely libertarian ideas is reflected in the figure of Jonah Goldberg, someone whom every group described in Professor Hawley’s book would view with contempt, at best. The fact that his publication has gone out of its way to publish writers who present a watered-down, libertarian lite perspective merely demonstrates...

    Millions of men in the prime of their lives are missing from the labor force. Could a big U.S. housing construction project bring them back? Something is rotten in the U.S. economy. Poor men without a college degree are disappearing from the labor force. The share of prime-age men (ages 25-54) who are neither working nor looking for work has doubled since the 1970s. The U.S.’s labor participation rate for this group of men is lower than every country in the OECD except for Israel (an outlier, because of the high number of non-working Orthodox Jewish men) and Italy (an...

    Fracking is once again becoming a hot topic in the oil and gas world., with Germany moving Tuesday to impose an indefinite ban on the unconventional drilling technique. But in the U.S. this week the story was the opposite. Oil and gas drillers won a critical legal victory over the future of fracking in America’s shale plays. That came in Wyoming, where a District Judge struck down a set of tougher rules on fracking that had been implemented by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) early last year. Last March, the BLM came down hard on the U.S. shale...

    Concerned that some of the nation's resources may be out of their reach, Sens.

"As President Obama said when he was nominated for his second term, government is the only entity we all belong to," Franken recalled. "It is every business' and every individual's duty to do the utmost to ensure the survival of this single unifying entity. At a minimum, this means making all of their financial resources known to the government so they may be appropriated if the need...

If you don’t believe me, you can check the statistics on the Internet that don’t exist. At least I couldn’t find any that looked credible. But we do know that race and poverty are correlated. And we know that poverty and crime are correlated. And we know that race and political affiliation are correlated. Therefore, my team (Clinton) is more likely to use guns to shoot innocent people, whereas the...

    The left is a little touchy about the rejection of its world-changing ideas I think it basically comes down to this: Once the left establishes an institution and populates that institution with its kind, the institution can never be diminished in the slightest - let alone dismantled - because that represents a setback for the left’s march toward the power to engineer the entire social and economic order. That will not do. Think about the way they look at public schools, which are heavily staffed by unionized teachers who always toe the Democrat line: If anyone chooses to pull their...

While farm owners surrender their land development rights to governments, federal agencies relocate affordable housing next to million dollar homes, and declare entire neighborhoods discriminatory.

    Just hope that the current interglacial period will last for a few more decades to come. Anything else would spell disaster for much of mankind! Lyuba, of course, is the name bestowed upon the baby mammoth that was found a few years ago in the western Siberian tundra. The baby woolly mammoth is thought to be around 40,000 years old (by now) and is thought to have died by drowning at the age of two months. What’s so remarkable is Lyuba’s state of preservation, almost life-like, with skin and (sparse) hair fully intact. That kind of find is most uncommon.

    "He's a baby Christian." If you’re a Christian who’s been reluctant to vote for Donald Trump because of his past - shall we say - moral shortcomings, a secondhand report of his possible salvation is certainly not a reason all by itself to change that position. And as we’ve discussed in the past, it’s entirely possible God could be using Trump regardless of his faith or lack thereof. But one thing any Christian should recognize is that a person’s past is cleansed once they come to Christ, so if Dr. James Dobson is accurately reporting what he says happened recently,...

    That's not democracy.

Only a couple of days after the UK voted to free itself from the shackles of it overlords in Brussels, Fox News reported that 2 million Remainers ostensibly signed an online petition calling for another vote—and left-wing Labour party MP David Lammy said Parliament should overturn the result. This is the true face of progressive ideology: voting and democracy only count when the “right” result is reached. “Rejection of elitist enlightenment...

    It’s difficult to keep track of developments on the Brexit front, as news seems to be breaking nearly every minute. However, I’d like to provide you with some of the more useful observations about what has occurred in the UK and across the globe since Thursday. One of the most important questions, of course, is what happens next. As others have pointed out, this was a non-binding referendum and there is theoretically nothing preventing a Europhile political class from simply ignoring the will of the people. In fact, that is precisely the course some Labour MPs are suggesting Westminster take....

His purpose, he said, was to demonstrate how simple it was and to explore Illinois’ gun laws concerning assault weapons. When he bought the gun, Steinberg planned to sell it back to the store. However, his purchase was stopped by the gun store, which canceled the transaction during Illinois’ required 24-hour waiting period after discovering he had lied on his background check about his history of alcohol abuse and domestic violence.

What we do have is a political system in which childish tactics are used to play childish games with adult consequences. As described by Dr. Berne in Games People Play, "games" are dysfunctional strategies that can be used by adults to elicit childish or parental responses. Childish strategies shift responsibility to the "parent" while still claiming power. An adult who acts like a child gets to control what happens without being responsible for it.

    “Did you see how dark it was? It’s likely that more people would have been killed.” This was Bill Clinton’s response to a suggestion that law abiding people with firearms of their own might have been able to save lives by stopping Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen at the Orlando nightclub Pulse. Of course, Bill was comfortably surrounded by armed security during his Bloomberg television interview, as was Barack during his speech in Orlando a few days later. But Obama offered an even more pointed dissent from those who believe the little people should be permitted the means of preserving their...

    His only qualification was giving lots of money to the Clinton Foundation A few weeks ago, ABC broke the story of Raj Fernando, a big-money donor to the Clinton Foundation - as well as past campaigns of both Obama and Hillary - and how he managed to land a spot on the prestigious International Security Advisory Board. That’s a board generally populated by former generals, governors and top diplomats, who advise the Secretary of State on international security matters. Lots of eyebrows were raised when a securities trader with no background in any of this was introduced as a new...

    The dissatisfaction in the United Kingdom seems somewhat similar to the rise of the American middle and working class and the ever building support for Donald Trump If you found yourself asking “why” the United Kingdom voted to remove itself from its family within the European Union yesterday, then you are not alone. Many across the globe are trying to understand, predict outcomes and second guess the people of the United Kingdom. To understand this divide, we must start with the most powerful and prominent leader of the European Union, Angela Merkel. Who is she, and what has she done...

    Obama, who hates America even more than ISIS does It was too late by only one month for Independence Day, 2015 but just in time for this one: a rousing military medley that tells the story of America today. How many have long thought that the perfect prison for President Barack Obama would include 24-7 patriotic military music piped in, a fitting reminder for someone who hates America even more than ISIS does?

    Fox News Chris Wallace interviewed Hillary Clinton's baby campaign manager Robby Mook during his Sunday morning talk show. Wallace asked Mook about Clinton's low numbers in the trustworthy department and what did Mook do? Well, first of all, Trump’s speech earlier this week was just riddled with outright lies, inaccuracies,” Mook said. “It’s been fact-checked probably more than any other speech. Wallace quickly interrupted Mook to say he pointed that out to Trump supporter Newt Gingrich earlier on Fox News Sunday. I find it very ironic that Donald Trump bought his Turnberry golf course, you know, from an Arab country...

    Amidst all the chaos, Mr. Trump’s ability to stir controversies in the public opinion arena, comes as a shining beam of hope at the end of the tunnel Over the past few weeks I have had many close friends gently ask me when was I going to do a write-up on my outlook of the forthcoming presidential elections. Who was I endorsing or supporting as our next presidential candidate, many keep asking me. As I probed myself on my friends’ entreaty, it dawned on me that, regardless of who I supported or not, what really mattered, instead, was the fact...

    China made their citizens turn their guns. Made them all register. The next day they rounded up everyone on the lists. They executed 300,000 men and their sons. So if I understand this, the powers to be in Hawaii ( Democrats) put gun owners that purchased the guns legally on the FBI list but not the criminals who do not have a permit that bought their guns underground or stole them that do not have not permit. Just another example of stupid Democrat / Socialist government punishing people for doing the things legally instead of going after the bad guys....

    Another business discovers the advantages of welcoming the gun culture and supporting the Constitution.  In Minnesota, a gas station has found a way to disuade robbers by welcoming people with guns. From kstp.com: After getting robbed twice over the last three months, the owner of a Shell gas station in Sauk Rapids wanted to get more customers during the evening, hoping it would improve safety. Last week, station owner Frank Schwagel offered a 10-cent-per-gallon discount for law enforcement or people with proof of permit to carry after 7 p.m. each day. Much research has shown, over and over again,...

    Who took the “news” out of newspaper, news report and news coverage?Let’s look no further than just last Friday as demonstration of this sad state of affairs. Early Friday morning when Christiane Amonpour finally processed the results of the Brexit vote to “LEAVE”  she released a  venomous attack and condemnation of those who led and voted for Brexit. Not only did she blur the line between reporting and commentary, she veered into the advocacy lane and steered right into proselytizing. CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR: So, this is a moment of destiny that many, many people, the overwhelming, the overwhelming preponderance of experts...

    Supporters listen as U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks to voters at a rally at the The Myrtle Beach Sports Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, February 19, 2016. REUTERS/Randall Hill Although a few political analysts have been focusing on the white working class for years, it is only in response to the rise of Donald Trump that this large group of Americans has begun to receive the attention it deserves. Now, thanks to a comprehensive survey that the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) undertook in collaboration with the Brookings Institution, we can speak with some precision about the...
