    By AIMEE PICCHI December 12, 2014 Why Middle-Class Wealth Is Withering If the middle class is truly the backbone of America, the country's spine may be close to breaking. Middle America came out of the Great Recession in a precarious position, sinking into "dissavings" -- when spending is greater than income -- thanks to a nasty combination of stagnant wages and a hit to real estate and investment values, according to a new working paper from New York University economics professor Edward N. Wolff. That's led to a grim outcome, with virtually no change in the country's median wealth between...

    Yahoo News ^ | 2/1/2014 | Daily Caller
    In a speech in Wisconsin on Thursday, President Barack Obama insulted perhaps the most fervent members of his political base: art history majors. The politically clumsy moment occurred during the president’s remarks at General Electric’s Waukesha Gas Engines facility. After extolling his own economic policies at some length, Obama observed that “manufacturing jobs typically pay well” in the United States. “We want to encourage more of them,” he said. Then, he began to speak — apparently extemporaneously — about the benefits of working in America’s ever-diminishing manufacturing sector.

    First Lady Michelle Obama took a jab at rural Americans during a speech she delivered to Democrats at the posh Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, according to a White House transcript of her remarks.Her comments came as she was imploring the high-dollars donors to dig deep and “max out” their checking accounts. “Leave San Francisco,” she told the laughing audience. “Leave this bastion. Go out in the wilderness. And roll up your sleeves because we know that those person-to-person contacts, those calls and doors knocked on, all of that can also mean the difference between victory and defeat.” The wilderness?...

    By extrapolating quotes and just plain old lying, the elite media are using a GQ interview with "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson as an excuse to go on an anti-Christian rampage that they hope will further their longstanding goal of toxifying Biblical beliefs as bigoted and anti-gay. If you read the full GQ interview, though, it is glaringly obvious that Robertson is anti-sin, not anti-gay, and that he believes we should all love one another. To begin with, the Duck Commander did not single out homosexual behavior; he listed over a half-dozen sins, including adultery, greed, bestiality, drunkenness, idolatry, etc....

Leo Ryan, before committing mass suicide in Guyana in 1978. “For those who’ve forgotten, a Democratic member of Congress was murdered in Jonestown and a current one, Rep. Jackie Speier, was shot five times during the same incident,” Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement to reporters. “If this is the attitude of the new White House, it’s hard to see how the president gets...

    CBS calls our ads "inflammatory"? That's half right. The ad is not inflammatory. But the quote is. It has inspired mass murder for centuries. But CBS didn't mean that. The CBS headline says that the ad is "inflammatory." Inflammatory? Because it violates the sharia (do not criticize Islam)? Because it might inflame devout Muslims to riot, kill and burn embassies as they did over a cartoon or youtube video? Our ads are accurate. September 11th was inflammatory. The calls for jihad in the quran are inflammatory. Ethnic cleansing in the cause of Islam is inflammatory. The jihad in Sudan is...

The quote reads: "Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest." - Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446. This historical quote was apparently too much for Facebook's censors to bear. They suspended our account and gave us a "final warning" that one more violation of their so-called "community guidelines" would result in our account being permanently deactivated.

    Back in May, 2011, this column had the great honor of being excoriated in a blog published by the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. A superb Claire Wolfe quote cited in the author's Twitter profile drew some of the criticism, but the cause for most of CSGV's anguished bleating was this article, particularly the following passage: If gun owners are indeed a minority in the U.S., so what? Does being in the minority make one's rights less worthy of defending? Such a situation would hardly be consistent with the values that are supposed to be an essential part of what...

    Author Bob Woodward's sixteenth book is about to drop this coming Monday, and the excerpts that have been released are already causing an uproar. The Obama Administration had given Woodward exceedingly open access to documents and personnel, as well as the Commander in Chief, in hopes that Woodward would paint a sympathetic picture of our 44th President. It seems that they were wrong. The New York Times was able to obtain quotes from the book, and they are damning. The NYT suggests that the war in Afghanistan "divided" the Obama Administration and lead to arguments amongst the higher-ups. In the...
