  • Our Noble Declaration of Independence

    04/24/2016 1:36:19 AM PDT · by Jacquerie · 13 replies
    Among the reasons I enjoy Independence Day is that it makes Leftists squirm. They despise the American Revolution. If they could, their scotus judges would gut the Declaration as thoroughly as they have the Constitution. To them, our Noble Declaration, this expression of God-given reason is subversive of social justice; they are right. Since the Declaration is indeed hostile to their moral relativism, the Left has long attempted to minimize our founding to a fuzzy faith in the people. The ďderiving their just powers from the consent of the governed,Ē and ďall men are created equal,Ē translates in their Marxist...

    Why all of a sudden has the Transgender issue in the bathroom become the latest craze of the lib-left? Why is it that there are few, if any, Transgender Bathrooms in the White House, the House of Commons, at Brussels EU headquarters, the UN or in the hallowed halls of any other nationís ivory towers? Many of the occupants of these edifices, who spent taxpayersí billions in renovation projects, didnít see the march of the transgenders coming? Itís because like taxes, bylaws, decrees, ordinances and rules sent down the pike from authorities the world over, the forced use of transgender...

    Some liberal celebrities are threatening to leave the country if Donald Trump becomes president. Samuel L.

    Even the Founders, a grouping singular in the history of men concerning the brilliance of their intellects and the purity of their motives knew they couldn't trust themselves to form or maintain a government of fallible men to rule over fallible men In America today a debate rages concerning the legitimate role of government.

    I followed the career of Gabby Giffords prior to her unfortunate shooting, because I wanted to understand her as a libertarian pro-choicer. I found it mysterious how someone who had respect for private property and human freedom, could lack such respect for the most fundamental property privacy, the ownership of one's very self, or the most basic freedom, the most extreme "without which not"--the ultimate sine qua non--the right to claim the use of a life which God has given us and to develop the potential which He has ordained for us.

There is "no police brutality in America," but there is "a truth problem," said Sheriff Clarke in a recent commentary in The Hill.

    Bernie Sanders, greedy for power to punish people he considers greedy, has occasioned 2016's best joke (reported in Bloomberg Businessweek): "In the Bernie Sanders drinking game, every time he mentions a free government program, you drink someone else's beer." But neither Sanders' nor Hillary Clinton/s hostility to the First Amendment is amusing. Both have voted to do something never done before - make the Bill of Rights less protective. They favor amending the First Amendment to permit government regulation of political campaign speech. Hence, they embrace "progressivism's" logic, as it has been explained separately and disapprovingly, by two eminent economists,...

    When a big corporation is charged with antitrust or regulatory violations, and fined billions of dollars, have you ever wondered where that money goes? You might assume that it is deposited in the United States Treasury, for general purposes, or that it goes to victims of the companies’ misconduct. In some cases, you’d be right, but it turns out an awful lot of that money is being funneled straight into progressive non-profits, at the express direction of the Department of Justice. According to an exposé in the Wall Street Journal, the DOJ often mandates as part of settlements that the...

But as soon as the story broke Wednesday afternoon, and while it was still going on, there were accusations and bitter words flung all over the Internet. The weirdest argument came almost immediately. A person named Chris Murphy, who is a U.S. senator representing Connecticut, sent out what struck me as the most manipulative message of recent political history. The background is that Republican presidential contestants responded online to the...

    The Black Lives Matter movement has frequently been criticized by conservatives, and for good reason. The organization is undeniably radical and practices race-based intimidation. For instance, slightly less than two weeks ago, activists attacked white students studying in a library at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Their "sin," apparently, was their skin -- the white students were born racists and criminals per the eyes of Black Lives Matter. The innocent students were slammed against the walls, cursed at, and berated for their supposed racial privilege. Having said that, even a broken clock is right twice a day. In subject...

    On the 100th anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson's inauguration in 2013 I wrote an op-ed published in the Richmond Post-Dispatch reminding its readers of the retrograde racial views of our 28th president that few Americans were aware of (except for historians of the Wilson presidency who have mentioned it in their works). Later, professor Randy Barnett of the Georgetown University Law Center quoted extensively from my article to call for the removal of Wilson's name from all public buildings in the country. The issue of Wilson's racial views and policies then virtually disappeared from the public discourse until students at...

They demanded that officials acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson - who was president of Princeton before becoming president of the United States and expunge his name from anything named after him. They further demanded "cultural competency training" for anyone teaching at Princeton, courses on the "history of marginalized people," and a designated public space for...

In 2013, a student in Palatine Township High School (Illinois) complained about sexual discrimination to the federal Department of Education‚Äôs Office for Civil Rights (OCR).

Levy, author of Love and Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships, focuses on the brain, the software side, and the algorithms of humanoid robots. Cheok researches the hardware side from an engineering view, looking at multi-modal interfaces including communication by touch, taste, and smell.

This could be some kind of cross-promotional hullabaloo for the movie The Martian, which came out this week, or it could mean thereís life on Mars. If itís the latter, it behooves us to provide a welcome letter for Martians to get acquainted with our planet. Greetings, Welcome to America. We are members of a cultural group called ďThe WestĒ and itís generally understood the West is the best. America is known as the best of the best. Weíre the...

    Editor's Note: The following column is satire.To the limited extent they actually do, have you ever wondered how so-called ¬ďprogressives¬Ē think? The progressive mind ¬Ė let¬ís call it, ¬ďProgressy¬Ē ¬Ė collectively hovers, like the Hindenburg, in that fantastical realm, that manmade utopia in waiting, that ¬ďfundamentally transformed¬Ē world that might only be, if ‚Ķ Hitler got it mostly wrong, Stalin, somewhat right, and Mao, with his ¬ďGreat Leap Forward,¬Ē warmer still. Marx and Engels were red-hot-close, but, they, too, missed the mark, if only by an inch. Today¬ís hipper, gentler, more progressivish progressives are confident that, if we¬íd only give...

    Nothing says ďelection seasonĒ quite like politicians dumping their long-held policy stances overboard in a desperate gambit to gain votes, but you have to hand it to Hillary Clinton. With her recently-announced opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, sheís making one of the more brazen flip-flops in recent political memory. Whatís so amazing about Clintonís newfound opposition to the highly controversial deal is the jaw-dropping transparency of the move. Itís such an open ploy to counter both the rise of staunch TPP critic Bernie Sanders and the possible entry of TPP supporter Joe Biden that itís almost refreshing in...

    Activists are hoping to draw 10,000 people from a variety of organizations and causes for a march on the same day as the Republican presidential debate at the University of Colorado this month. The Oct. 28 demonstration, called "Our Future, Our Choice: March for Civic Engagement," begins at the Glen Huntington Bandshell in Boulder's Central Park and ends at the Coors Events Center, where Republican candidates will be sparring with each other during a live television broadcast. The activists are planning to use CU's Business Field, which is across Regent Drive from the arena, for post-march activities and displays. Gary...

    This is not the America I know. Our culture that has always been a shining beacon for the world has been toppled, broken, crushed. It started long ago with a loss of pride in our country and a loss of individual responsibility. Those in our country with a lack of moral clarity bordering on the criminal have been allowed to overtake our institutions from academia to politics. The economic and moral support given to the charlatans has been given by an underclass whose sole purpose is to take from others and those of us who are going about our day...

    Because it doesn't fit the narrative If Thursdayís victims had been singled out because they were black, every left-wing talking head on the planet would be using the Umpqua Community College shootings as evidence of Americaís deep-seated racism. If Thursdayís victims had been singled out because they were Muslims, theyíd be blaming Bush, American xenophobia, and anti-Islamic paranoia. If theyíd been targeted because they were Women, Democrat pundits would be screaming about the war on women and the misogyny inherent to our Neanderthal culture.

    <p>Progressives will tell you that food stamp fraud is basically a problem that doesnít exist. At best theyíll admit that, perhaps, there are a few instances where a store sells something to a customer that shouldnít be covered by the SNAP program - but theyíll claim those minor transgressions are extremely isolated cases. Theyíll regale you with tales of the hard-working poor who hold down two jobs and receive welfare just to make ends meet.</p>

    One of my favorite political stories comes from my friend Michelle Steel, an Orange County Supervisor and formerly a member of the State Board of Equalization in California (BOE). When on the BOE, which oversees much of the tax structure in California including sales tax, she served with Judy Chu who is now a Congresswoman (D-CA). In the eight years that Steel served on the BOE, she could only remember Chu voting in favor of the taxpayer once. But every time she went out somewhere with Chu, she would tell a story about her support for the taxpayers and tell...

    When it comes to considering the arguments of newly resurgent Christian progressives, we hold these truths to be self-evident: Jesus was not a socialist, the Bible is not an economics textbook, and while scripture commands believers to help the poor, it also commands the poor to help themselves. As Pope Francis gains rock-star status on the economic left, Christians would do well to remember not just scripture, but the economic reality of recent world experience. This morning, the pope addressed Congress with relative restraint. Rather than decrying the perceived excesses of global capitalism ó calling it, as he once...

    "STUNNING ADMISSION: Hyper-Progressive Cardinal Danneels Admits Being in Mafia Dedicated to Unseat PBXVI" Pride goeth before the fall. The modernists are apparently feeling very powerful and secure, because they are starting to open their mouths and crow about both their opposition to Pope Benedict XVI, dropping hints they played a role in his abdication, as well as quite possibly illicitly organizing to elect Pope Francis. Further serious concerns are being raised about Cardinal Godfried Danneels, one of the papal delegates chosen to attend the upcoming Ordinary Synod on the Family, after the archbishop emeritus of Brussels confessed this week to...

    Today, Salon gave a platform to a self-confessed pedophile to explain his urges in sympathetic terms. ďIím a Pedophile, But Not A MonsterĒ reads the headline. Itís a long, self-pitying screed that ends with a call to be ďunderstanding and supportiveĒ of adults who crave sexual intimacy with children. Forgive me if Iím not first to start the standing ovation. In fact Iím pretty sure most people will find the existence on Salonís website of this post both shocking and distasteful. The timing of Nickersonís post, barely a week after multiple high-profile progressives rallied around progressive activist Sarah Nyberg, couldnít...

    Maybe we shouldnít expect anything much from a president who gave Queen Elizabeth an iPod filled with his own speeches, and who gave former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown a set of American movies on DVDs that didnít work in the U.K. But the way this White House is choosing to ďwelcomeĒ Pope Francis is appalling. When Francis arrives at the White House on Wednesday for a welcome reception, his greeters will include ďEpiscopal Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Anglican bishop whoís now a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a think-tank with ties to the...
