  • What if #MeToo victims had Mike Pence rule?

    There is a uniform and pernicious hypocrisy that cannot be overstated when it comes to liberals and specifically when it comes to cultural Marxists. And tragically for them, their intellectual dishonesty, which is the viscous substance they employ to lubricate the machinations they use to dictate what are acceptable social mores, almost always culminate in exposing them as decadent social subversives. One example would be the criticism that Vice President Pence received in March 2017, because of an interview he did with “The Hill” in 2002. During the interview he stated, that he doesn’t dine alone with a woman, nor...
  • How is it that progressives confuse "society" and "government"?

    09/02/2017 7:06:31 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 30 replies
    Society is society. Government is government. They are two entirely distinct, and completely separate things. Not in the land of Progressivism, however. For progressives, society is government and government is society. They are equally the same and there is no possible distinction. You can routinely see the rotting husk of this when someone proceeds to inform you that "they believe society should do x or y" but when talking of x or y they are instead referring to government action. "I believe that we as a society should take care of the poor, and that's why I support {insert name...
  • Top 10 Ways to Trim Health Care Spending by a Trillion

    American Spectator ^ | August 10, 2017 | Hunt Lawrence & Daniel J. Flynn
    Ancient Egyptians, employing an arduous system of hieroglyphics to represent numbers in their ignorance of zero, displayed a man holding his hands over his head for 1,000,000 in seeming astonishment that numbers ran so high. Americans presented with our national health care bill increasing resemble that hieroglyphic. We average more than $10,000 per person this year in health care expenses. This collectively amounts to more than $3 trillion, a figure approximating nearly a fifth of our gross domestic product. Few nations pay even half that portion, and similar nations do not expend anything close to such an exorbitantly high percentage...
  • Liberals Must Take Responsibility For Their Obsessive Violent Rhetoric Against Republicans

    It is hard to believe that no civility exists in American politics, or that the hateful and violent rhetoric of the left has led to blood shed in our Country. We have grown so weary of nonstop lies and stalking of President Trump by Liberals, who lost the 2016 Election. In truth, they have become outlaws in our government, who are trying to overthrow a Presidency elected by We The People. Is this not called treason? 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving...

    Damn that accurate information people found out about! Did someone ever tell you they were going to do something, but then they didn’t? Someone once told me, “I saw a Tigers shirt and I was going to buy it for you!” But they didn’t. Hey! Thanks for telling me about the shirt you didn’t buy me! Not that I can’t get plenty of my own, but what good does it do me that you were “going to buy” the shirt? You didn’t.

    America will always have a safety net for the genuinely needy--unless we bankrupt the nation catering to those who embrace personal irresponsibility Nothing about America’s ever-expanding welfare state has been more egregious than its unflinching cultivation of personal irresponsibility. From able-bodied people getting welfare or disability payments, to single women having illegitimate children, much of what we used to consider unacceptable or immoral behavior has been de-stigmatized. Our shame-free society must be kept in mind during the GOP’s effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare. That’s because the Left’s greatest weapon—one also embraced by several weak-kneed Republicans—is the idea that if...

    Darien, Connecticut is a quaint little town that you could easily drive past on I-95 without noticing. And while it seems like a quiet place where nothing notable happens … every siren that goes off in the middle of the night disturbing the peaceful, tree-lined streets tells a different story. Every first responder in the town’s three fire departments and emergency medical services is a volunteer. All medical emergencies, from a fiery motor vehicle rollover on I-95 to a woman going into labor at home, brings the Post 53 ambulances wailing down the streets. And the EMTs who will treat...

    Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, the terrorist responsible for last Thursday’s massive terror attack in Nice, France, was “one of the soldiers of ISIS”, Islamic State sources claimed on Saturday. The attack, carried out during Bastille Day celebrations in the southern French city, left 84 dead – excluding the terrorist, who was shot dead by police – and more than 200 wounded. A Tunisian-born French citizen, Bouhlel had a history of serious mental and emotional problems and was well-known to local police. Bernard Cazeneuve, France’s Interior Minister, said Bouhlel “appears to have become radicalized very quickly”, noting that he began attending the...

    Abortion is unique because pregnancy is. The fact that an unborn baby resides entirely inside the body of another human being with rights of her own makes mincemeat of our whole approach to justice, which is based on individual rights, balanced against the rights of others and the claims of the common good. Yes, the baby has the right to life, but the mother has the right to control her body, too, so how can we disentangle the claims of two people who literally inhabit the same space, eat the same food, and are intimately related? To what else...

    The head of the agency that oversees President Barack Obama’s health-care legislation suggested it should not be held responsible for the 12 Obamacare health insurance co-ops that closed their doors to customers last year, according to prepared testimony he is scheduled to deliver today before the Senate Finance Committee. Andy Slavitt, acting administrator for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), was not apologetic in his testimony and accepted no personal responsibility for the co-op failures in 15 states, according to an advance copy of his testimony obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The closures sent millions of Americans...

    If The Big Short, Adam McKay’s adaptation of Michael Lewis’s book about the 2008 financial crisis and the subject of last month’s Vulture cover story, got you all worked up over the holidays, you’re probably wondering what Michael Burry, the economic soothsayer portrayed by Christian Bale who’s always just a few steps ahead of everyone else, is up to these days. In an email, which readers of the book will recognize as his preferred method of communication, the real-life head of Scion Asset Management answered some of our panicked questions about the state of the financial system, his ominous-sounding water...
  • Republicans deserve some blame for the Planned Parenthood shooting

    "....The current effort to demonize Planned Parenthood feels different. This is, literally, a manufactured issue, cobbled together from doctored videotapes and overheated accusations. The organization's activities have been so mischaracterized, and the practice of providing fetal tissue so overblown and so manipulated by lawmakers and politicians, that blame for the ensuing violence falls more heavily on them. This argument, I concede, rests on a potentially slippery and subjective slope. Holding advocates responsible for such unintended consequences risks dampening speech. Second, conservatives have blamed Black Lives Matter protesters for inspiring the killing of police officers; what makes my critique fair and...

    Looking back at the unrest that followed Freddie Gray's death, Baltimore voters see events differently than do voters statewide, a new poll shows.City voters are less likely to sympathize with police, and they are more likely to see joblessness and racism as a cause of April's unrest, according to a poll of likely voters conducted for The Baltimore Sun and the University of Baltimore.Those living outside the city are more likely to blame "a lack of personal responsibility among residents" for the city's ills.The divided opinions were most pronounced when respondents were asked for their opinions of how Baltimore State's...

    Following ISIS's November 13, 2015 terror attack in Paris, the executive editor of the Iraqi daily Al-Mada, 'Adnan Hussein, published a harsh article titled "This Is Our Terror, We Are Responsible," in which he stated that all Muslims, Sunnis and Shi'ite, bear direct responsibility for the terror that is sweeping the world. He said that the curricula, the media and the mosques in the Muslim world constitute a platform for inculcating a barbaric kind of Islam that condones beheadings and bloodshed, whereas the voice of the other kind of Islam, which preaches peace and compassion, is barely heard. This religious...

    The Obama administration's policy toward Syria and its more than four-year civil war is rapidly becoming a black mark on the president's legacy. And a scathing new report by Peter Baker of The New York Times details the mind-boggling decision by the White House to refuse to accept any responsibility. The blame for the failed US effort to train Syrian rebels to fight ISIS "should be pointed not at Mr. Obama but at those who pressed him to attempt training Syrian rebels in the first place," administration officials told Baker. There are only "four or five" US-trained rebels left fighting...

    The Hill ^ | September 2, 2015 | Robert Leonard,
    "The difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Republicans believe people are fundamentally bad, while Democrats see people as fundamentally good." With that philosophical premise, former Oklahoma Rep. J.C. Watts (R) isolated the differences between members of the two political parties in the clearest manner I've ever heard, and the implications of his statement are considerable, as it explains many Republican policies for at least a generation. Watts made the remarks in Pella, Iowa, while stumping for Sen. Rand Paul's (R-Ky.) presidential bid prior to the Iowa caucuses. Watts drew the nation's attention first as the quarterback who led the...

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy said her agency is "accepting full responsibility" for a contractor that accidentally spilled millions of gallons of polluted water last week into western Colorado's Animas River, where cleanup efforts are ongoing as federal officials seek to maintain contamination. The Aug. 5 spill occurred when an agency contractor operating heavy machinery punctured a barrier holding back water containing mining tailings at the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colo. Three million gallons of water polluted with heavy metals poured into the river and turned it orange, and the tainted water spread into New Mexico and Utah....

Individual responsibility is something for cowboys from Oklahoma For all intents and purposes the Savopoulos family were good, civic–minded residents of Washington, DC. Savvas, and his wife Amy, were active in charitable causes and contributed $51,800 to both Republican and Democrat candidates since 2006. The Daily Mail reports that even though Savopoulos was very wealthy he didn’t surround himself with bodyguards or other security and the family didn’t hesitate to open the door when someone knocked.

    When a society abandons these virtues, the people become corrupt, and unwilling to abide by the rule of law. A viciousness blankets the people, which leads to violence and lawlessness Benjamin Franklin emphasized that without virtue, free societies could not properly function. He said, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” With freedom comes responsibility. The responsible society is one that is virtuous. A man with virtue is a man that possesses “sacred honor.” It is for the sake of a free society that men must deny...
