  • The Rise of the Chinese-American Right: They Hate Affirmative Action and Support Trump

    National Review ^ | 07/17/2019 | By RONG XIAOQING
    New generations of Chinese immigrants hate affirmative action — and some are beginning to love Trump. On June 13, during a nasty storm, a group of Chinese New Yorkers gathered in front of the gates of Gracie Mansion, the New York mayor’s residence on the Upper East Side, to protest. Inside, Mayor Bill de Blasio was meeting with two dozen or so representatives of the Asian-American community to discuss his controversial plan to reform the meritocratic admissions process for the city’s specialized high schools — the first such meeting since he announced the plan out of the blue a year...

The ban includes the British National Party and Nick Griffin, the English Defence League and the National Front. The list also includes Britain First, which was already banned, but this latest action will prohibit support for it on any of the US firm's services. It said it had taken the action because those involved had proclaimed a "violent or hateful mission". "Individuals and organisations...

  • Contrasting Abortion Decisions in Two States [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 11 Nov 2018 | John Semmens
    In this election abortion ballot measures appeared in two states. In West Virginia, voters approved a constitutional amendment with the following wording: “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.” In Oregon, voters defeated a measure that banned taxpayers funding of elective abortions. Oregon is one of 17 states that forces taxpayers to fund elective abortions. Because the state has no abortion restrictions, tax dollars pay for unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to the moment before birth. In 2017, Gov. Kate Brown (D) signed a bill expanding...

    Strong rhetoric and violence on both sides of the political spectrum are reaching a fever pitchIs the United States on the brink of a new civil war? According to Newsweek magazine’s polling, a third of all Americans think such a conflict could break out within the next five years, with 10% thinking it “very likely to happen.” Plenty of experts agree. Back in March, State Department official Keith Mines told Foreign Policy magazine: “It is like 1859, everyone is mad about something and everyone has a gun.” He rated the odds of a second American Civil War breaking out within...
  • Black Voters Beginning to Turn Right as Midterms Near

    The Epoch Times ^ | 10/04/18 | MATTHEW VADUM
    Support for President Donald Trump is growing among black Americans, but it’s unclear whether that will translate into enough votes for Republicans to retain control of Congress in the midterm elections in one month’s time. This apparent reversal of fortunes stands in stark contrast to Republicans’ inability in recent decades to attract much support from black voters. Part of the growth could be due to defections from the Democratic side. Former Democrat Brandon Straka’s #WalkAway movement has been encouraging Americans to share their personal stories of disillusionment with the Democratic Party and abandon, or “walk away,” from the party. The...

    The centre-right Coalition Avenir Quebec is on track to win power for the first time in Canada's Quebec province, turning the page on nearly 15 years of liberal rule and allowing the party to make good on its promises to curb immigration. The business-friendly CAQ is expected to win a majority of seats in Canada's second most populous province, according to early results from Elections Quebec and network projections. "My team and I are very eager to get to work for you," Legault said Monday night on Twitter. The CAQ win would follow a shift to the right in Ontario,...

    Good news: the state of California can now seize and search your cellphone without a warrant. The new regime will only affect people who have already been arrested, so it’s not as if police officers will be able to search your cellphone at routine traffic stops. But still: yeah, it’s sorta lame. In 2011, even more of your rights will be chipped away. The California court that ruled in favor of this new way of being referred to an earlier U.S. Supreme Court ruling that basically says anytime you’ve been arrested you automatically forfeit any right to privacy to “anything...

    “A government which will turn its tanks upon its people, for any reason, is a government with a taste of blood and a thirst for power and must either be smartly rebuked, or blindly obeyed in deadly fear.”—John Salter Police in a small Georgia town tasered a 5-foot-2, 87-year-old woman who was using a kitchen knife to cut dandelions for use in a recipe. Police claim they had no choice but to taser the old woman, who does not speak English but was smiling at police to indicate she was friendly, because she failed to comply with orders to put...

    Conservatives should "fight back" against the alt-right and white nationalists, and do a better job reclaiming classic terms to stamp out identity politics, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Thursday. “We have to go back and fight for our ground and re-win these ideas and marginalize these guys the best we can to the corners,” Ryan said. “Do everything you can to defeat it.”

    New York Times ^ | 01/25/2012 | Binyamiin Applebaum
    The Fed said that it now planned to keep short-term interest rates near zero until late 2014, continuing the transformation of a policy that began as shock therapy in the winter of 2008 into a six-year campaign to increase spending by rewarding borrowers and punishing savers. The economy expanded “moderately” in recent weeks, the Fed said in a statement released after a two-day meeting of its policy-making committee, but jobs were still scarce, the housing sector remained deeply depressed and Europe’s flirtation with crisis could undermine the nascent domestic recovery. The Fed forecast growth of up to 2.7 percent this...

    A Michigan judge ruled last week that children do not have a fundamental right to learn how to read and write. The ruling came in response to a lawsuit filed by Public Counsel, the nation's largest public interest law firm, on behalf of Detroit students that sought to hold state authorities, including Gov. Rick Snyder (R), accountable for what plaintiffs alleged were systemic failures depriving children of their right to literacy, according to the Detroit Free Press. "I'm shocked," said Ivy Bailey, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers, the newspaper reported. "The message that it sends is that education...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/29/18 | Logan Hall
    When Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., gave a speech at a rally against government immigration policy, her message was clear: If you see anyone who’s recognizably affiliated with the Trump administration conducting their private affairs in public, they must be exiled and excised from public life. This display of hatred, paired with other recent demonstrations by the radical Left, shows a big problem for Democrats: They are alienating portions of their base, pushing many center-left voters to the right. The Democratic shift towards extremism is well-documented. Unsurprisingly, the Left’s growing radicalism has taken over the Democratic Party. The malicious parts of...

    The House sent “right to try” legislation on experimental drugs to President Trump’s desk Tuesday — a measure Trump, Vice President Pence and groups backed by mega-donors Charles and David Koch have repeatedly urged Congress to pass. The House passed the bill largely along party lines by a 250-169 [actually 267-149] vote.

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. They ask if I don't think his tweets are "beneath the dignity of the office." Here's my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized "collegiality" as John McCain? We tried propriety has...

It seems like information about what Top members of the FBI have done is being released Drip by drip. What do you think Trump intends to do ultimately, and when. What are your predictions of what will happen?

    Peace Now’s latest ad features Yigal Amir and Yona Avrushmi, who assassinated other Jews on political grounds, and several other Jews who attacked Arabs over the years. The Left’s claim is that the violence always comes from the Right, while its people don’t use violence - certainly not that which is extreme and murderous. The simple response to this claim is: Correct! Why should the Left use violence? After all, the war here is between Muslim Arabs and Jews. All that the Left has to do in order for Jews to be harmed is to weaken Jewish defenses. To give...

    The Democratic Party has learned to stop worrying and love “big government” liberalism. The party’s top presidential prospects are advertising their ardor for socialized medicine, free public college, universal child care and paid family leave. Even the party’s moderate senators are now pushing for the same kind of public health insurance option that their centrist predecessors killed in the early Obama years. And the party’s 2018 platform — the consensus agenda that ostensibly unites all Democrats, from Joe Manchin of West Virginia to Bernie Sanders — calls for vigorous antitrust enforcement to prevent mega-corporations from rigging the economy against working...
