    Ronda Rousey didn’t seem to want to take the bait from this female interviewer who was trying to get her be outraged that a male boxer would make wayyy more money than she does as a woman MMA fighter.Instead, she gave a very rational answer:(video at link)Wow. She almost sounds like a reasonable person instead of the irrational hysterical feminist the interviewer wants her to be. There’s all sorts of reasons why Mayweather would make a lot more than Ronda does, and in fact, it turns out to be a very good analogy for the wage gap because so much...

    “The purpose of propaganda is not the personal instruction of the individual, but rather to attract public attention to certain things, the importance of which can be brought home to the masses only by this means. Here the art of propaganda consists in putting a matter so clearly and forcibly before the minds of the people as to create a general conviction regarding the reality of a certain fact…it must appeal to the feelings of the public rather than to their reasoning power”, wrote Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf. Hitler continued, “The aim of propaganda is not to try to...

    The Constitution can be SUCH a pain. If you’re looking for someone who will admit what the left thinks, but usually doesn’t say, John Kerry might be your new best friend. Last week, we saw him testify that his nuclear deal with Iran would most likely lead to the deaths of American citizens. It was a disgusting, and probably treasonous, moment. It was also just the beginning of Kerry’s revelations. According to everyone’s favorite Secretary of State, the Iran deal isn’t being presented as a treaty because the administration is well aware that no sane person would ratify it. As...

    Remember Ted Cruz? Way back last spring, it seemed the Texas senator could be the front-runner for the most extreme, anti-reason candidate in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. That was, of course, before Donald “All Mexicans Are Rapists” Trump captured the attention of the American populace, turning what was your standard 47-candidate presidential primary into a giant, media-fueled train wreck that the nation’s Democrats are slowly driving by with equal parts horror and delight. Unfortunately for all candidates who are not Donald “Pass the Hairspray” Trump, you’ve basically got to believe in phrenology, bloodletting, and finding Jesus in...

Wilson revealed that since the shooting, he has struggled to find work and has been denied employment in several police departments in the St. Louis area. After working for a shoe store for two weeks, he quit when reporters began calling. His wife, who is also a police officer, also quit her job for her own safety.

    Have you ever heard the phrase, "No good deed goes unpunished?" Well, leave it up to Obama's Navy to prosecute the hero of Chattanooga, rather than give him a medal. As unthinkable is it may be, after Lieutenant Commander Timothy White shot and killed Muslim Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, keeping Mohammad from murdering more unarmed military men, he is now being punished. I guess Lieutenant Commander White didn't get the Obama memo that killing mass-murdering Muslims is taboo in the military of which he is commander in chief. This is according to Allen West, a former congressman and retired U.S. Army...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has stated that he doesn’t believe in the science behind global warming. In a forum hosted by Freedom Partners on Sunday evening, a key cog in the political network of the Koch Brothers, the Texas senator stated that “the data and facts don’t support” that global warming is occurring. The moderator of the forum described Cruz’s stance as “full out denial”. The Texas senator did not disagree with that characterisation. Cruz has previously compared those who believe in global warming to “flat-Earthers.” Cruz also criticised the new regulations, set to be unveiled by the Obama...

    The BSA decided that it profited the organization to lose its soul so it could gain the world. Its punishment will be, I suspect, that it will end up without either. There has been much written about the Boy Scouts of America’s recent acceptance of openly homosexual scout masters. The organization has been raked over the coals by the right and accused of offering only a half-measure by the left. But few appreciate what the BSA has actually done — and the BSA has no idea what it has done to itself. Scouting has never been just about tying knots...

    Here’s hoping the CMP videos initiate a paradigm shift in the nation’s thinking. We’ve got nothing to lose but our self-imposed cultural degradation The “banality of evil” became part of the cultural lexicon following the publication of German-born author Hannah Arendt’s 1963 book “Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil.” The book recounted the trial of Nazi Adolph Eichmann, who was chief of operations for the Gestapo-run Department for Jewish Affairs, and responsible for the deportation of three million Jews to extermination camps. Arendt hypothesized that people who carry out such barbarous crimes may not be inherently...

Not for the cause itself, which is merely the latest trend in left-wing economic illiteracy, but I too once ran a business in which I thought I could do amazing things by paying people way more than their experience levels or qualifications would earn them anywhere else. It didn’t work for two reasons. First, a business can’t survive when employees can’t generate...

Beforehand, I didn’t know him personally and so didn’t know what to expect. Well, here is what I found: Walker has the potential to be a great foreign-policy president. Here’s why. The first thing I learned is that Scott Walker is eager to talk about foreign policy. He relishes discussing the ins and outs of an issue and shows a curiosity that frankly I wish many of our senators had. He engages precisely at the level a president should, asking tough...

This MSNBC caricature of the GOP incarnate is getting heaps of praise from frustrated conservative base voters and unfortunately too much airtime from conservative political pundits because he evidently “tells it like it is.” Except that he doesn’t.

    The California Legislature is debating a bill that has passed through committee that would phase out hierarchy within a company. The bill is considered a landmark bill by many to eliminate what has been referred to as “wholesale oppression” of employees of a company. Speaker of the Assembly Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) sponsored the bill and hailed it as the next step in equal rights for all Americans. In the State Senate, President Pro Tem Kevin De León cheered the efforts of Speaker Atkins and stated he and his caucus were fully on board. De León (D-Los Angeles) said,...

    Tuesday, July 28, 2015 The Useless Jewish Organization Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog After the Iran deal, American Jews turned to the “Establishment” of liberal Jewish organizations to whom they had written out so many checks over the years expecting them to do something about it. And the organizations did what they do best. They expressed concern. The ADL was “deeply concerned” about the Iran nuclear deal two years ago. It announced that it now has “cause for concern”. It’s unknown whether the next ADL boss, Obama crony Jonathan A. Greenblatt, it also concerned, but it...

    As a conservative I gave up long ago on balanced television news coverage. But even this jaded viewer has been disappointed by what I consider unfair and inadequate news coverage of Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. When Cruz first entered the race for a Texas senate seat he instantly became a favorite of tea party crowds. That’s not because Cruz was some fringe lunatic or right wing radical. Its because he instantly displayed world class communication skills that he used masterfully to articulate conservatism. Though it may sound like heresy to some, I would posit that Cruz is better at communicating...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned GOP voters against making Donald Trump the Party’s nominee for the 2016 election. “The man is too doggone mean to be president,” Graham complained. “It isn’t just the fact that he’s egregiously insulted me—a sitting senator. He’s insulting everyone. He’s insulted immigrant rapists and murderers while completely overlooking the crimes committed by native-born rapists and murderers. He’s insulted the Chinese, implying that their trade policies are unfair. This is no way to build bridges.” “Perhaps the worst offense is Trump’s lack of respect for President Obama,” the Senator continued. “The President is a...

    So…the science isn’t settled after all? Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, explains why “climate change,” far from being a recent human-caused disaster, is, for a myriad of complex reasons, a fact of life on Planet Earth. Of course religion is based on faith, not fact. And since Climate Change is the only religion many Warmers have you can expect them to stick to their guns and cling to their religion.Which is odd, since Marxists are generally opposed to religion. Butt when religion becomes this useful, they simply can’t help themselves. It’s like manna from heaven.So let me be perfectly clear:...

    In his continuing quest to sell Congress on what House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) labeled a "diplomatic masterpiece," Secretary of State John Kerry tried to reassure the House Foreign Affairs Committee that Iran's vow to take down the United States is "mere rhetoric for domestic consumption." "Surely, members of Congress are aware that from time to time it is necessary to espouse policies that we have no real intention of implementing," Kerry said. "I've lost count of the number of times that various spokesmen for the GOP have pledged to repeal Obamacare or to build a border fence. Yet,...
