  • Robert Reich: Does Hillary Get It? – OpEd

    Does Hillary Clinton understand that the biggest divide in American politics is no longer between the right and the left, but between the anti-establishment and the establishment? I worry she doesn’t – at least not yet. A Democratic operative I’ve known since the Bill Clinton administration told me “now that she’s won the nomination, Hillary is moving to the middle. She’s going after moderate swing voters.” Presumably that’s why she tapped Tim Kaine to be her vice president. Kaine is as vanilla middle as you can get. In fairness, Hillary is only doing what she knows best. Moving to the...

A referendum on these reforms is needed, and we will be considering a campaign to put some of these reforms on the ballot in an upcoming referendum. By clicking this link,...
  • SAF Slams Media Cover For Clinton’s Campaign Against Second Amendment

    07/24/2016 10:27:30 AM PDT · by Mr. Mojo · 1 replies
    BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today condemned attempts by the agenda-driven media, led by CBS, to provide cover for Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton’s war on gun rights by trying to debunk Republican Donald Trump’s statement Thursday night that Clinton “wants to essentially abolish the Second Amendment.” “CBS News and others argue that Trump’s allegation is not true, and that ‘Clinton has spoken up for Second Amendment rights on several occasions,’” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “They are being disingenuous at best, and they know it. “More than a year ago,” he recalled, “Clinton...

    “BLM is a gay group. It was started by two lesbians and its most prominent spokesman is a gay man.” Of course Ann Coulter’s revelation of the homosexual/lesbian/queer/bi-sexual/transsexual bent of #BlackLivesMatter Founders and VIPs may not apply to Charles Wade, BLM activist and Co-Founder of Operation Help or Hush, the organization which attempted to posthumously transform Ferguson thug Michael Brown into an abused Teddy Bear. Wade was arrested in College Park, Maryland this past April for sex trafficking—that is, pimping—a 17 year old girl in the motel where he was staying. No doubt Wade was raising funds for the cause....

    One more experiment comes to an end, leaving behind anarchy and ruin. The EU-SSR elite has destroyed prosperous countries just in a few decades – ironically, they’ve achieved even more than the geriatric Soviet elite. After the Brexit and recent attacks against migrants in Britain I can’t get rid of deja vu feeling. As if I’ve already watched this movie a quarter of a century ago. I know its end and it’s not a happy one. In the summer of 1989, the Lithuanian Sejm decided to withdraw from the Soviet Union and establish Lithuanian laws in the country. It was...

    Massachusetts has a very weak "castle doctrine" law.  It provides for a defense that can be hard to prove.  It may provide little protection for the homeowner in this case. Three young males, at least two of which had been drinking, approach a dwelling and pound on the door.  The door is locked. The resident "tried to communicate".  At least one continues to pound on the door.  The resident calls 911 to report an attempted break in. Someone (presumably the person pounding on the door)  breaks out some glass.  The resident, fearing a home invasion, fires through the door,...

    In the first chapter to his superb new book, Our Republican Constitution, Professor Randy Barnett opens with the events and intellectual background that led to our Declaration of Independence. Of primary importance is the concept and place of natural law and natural rights. Thousands of men risked their necks in order to assume “the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature” entitled them. Whatever structures of government were to follow, their designs would recognize self-evident truths, that all men are in possession of God-given, natural, unalienable rights. While the literature of the time emphasized rights to life,...

Bernie Bros want Bernie to withdraw his endorsement based on the WikiLeaks exposing the DNC rigged the game. A class action suit has been filed against DWS as well. Sanders supporters opposed to bad trade deals and the status quo are supporting Trump. We need more of this. Either Sanders shows respect for his voters and volunteers and fights the rigged game (goes rogue), or he's actually been part of the rigged game from day 1.

    Despite claims of racism, Freddie Gray hoax was fought in a mostly black city between black officials. Even half the police officers charged in the case were black. The Freddie Gray case came down not to black or white, but to telling the truth Judge Barry G. Williams once again handed the Freddie Gray lynch mob a decisive defeat, shredding the prosecution’s case against Lt. Brian Rice, the highest ranking police officer targeted by the mob. Judge Williams stated firmly that, the court “cannot be swayed by sympathy, prejudice or public opinion.” Instead he insisted that it had to follow...

    California's dear leader is killing the golden state: Californians, gird your loins in anticipation of the tax onslaught “California is definitely back,” Governor Jerry Brown boasted in 2014. Brown then proclaimed the state a “job creation engine,” proving he was still living in the 1960s. However, Brown has shown little stomach for sensible tax and regulatory cuts, and instead pays lip service to the media about how fiscally prudent he is…. everything he touches turns Brown.

    He can win this. Last night, while watching Donald Trump’s speech, I realized two things. The first was that the so-called “conservative pundit class” would hate his address. The second is that this election is now Trump’s to lose. On the first point, I was proven right before the speech even ended. A quick glance at Twitter confirmed that the usual cadre of east coast, RNC faithful, talking heads were trashing Trump. His speech was “too dark,” or it was “negative,” or it was “fear mongering.” Folks like Red State’s Erick Erickson spent the night comparing Trump to Hitler, while...

    The implosion of the NeverTrump movement that came with Ted Cruz’s public political suicide will have a very beneficial effect on Donald Trump’s campaign to win the Presidency. Hillary Clinton was once leading Trump by as much as 12 points. That has fizzled down to a virtual tie in poll after poll and there are clear reasons why. When Hillary was courting Bernie Sanders for his backing she was in the news; and that led to a 7 point Rasmussen lead for Trump because of the “Morris rule.” The “Dick Morris rule” says Hillary’s numbers go up when she is...

And when it finally happens, the belated rescue operation might end up...

Lately they have taught us, again, that the only provocation required to inflame them is our existence—which means some people have a lot to apologize for after the latest assault on Western values, along the seaside in Nice. Let’s start with Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau who, barely 15 months ago, suggested that the satirists at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo were complicit in their own assassinations. “Charlie Hebdo, which always maintained it was attacking Islamic fanatics, not the general population,...

Or only the crime stories in which it appears that a police officer might have done something wrong - even though no one has the police side of the story yet and there’s no way to know for sure?

    A comparison between the speakers at the Republican Convention and the Democrat Convention shows the difference between the two Parties. Thanks to the pressure put on both the RNC and the DNC by Donald Trump, this year’s conventions will finally hold both Parties up to the light and show America what their choices are in this Presidential Election. Absent Trump, the Republicans would have put on another “me too” show designed to show that they are actually just another wing of the prevailing Uniparty. That’s finished now. Consider this “Powerhouse” Democrat line up: First Lady Michelle Obama who thinks she...

    And a weird sop to the racial-grievance industry CLEVELAND—Ted Cruz did the Republican Party no favors last night when he pointedly refused to endorse GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, breaking a promise he and other rival candidates made at the outset of the primary campaign last year. Cruz also made what appeared to be some kind of overture to race baiters by mentioning aspiring cop-killer Alton Sterling who was recently shot dead by Baton Rouge police during an altercation. It seemed very odd, but maybe in retrospect it shouldn’t. After all, Cruz went along with leftists and a few other...

    An extraordinary shot from a Colorado gunfight is being described as a "one in a billion" shot.  The shot is extraordinary, but the odds are much better than a billion to one.  It is fairly common for people in a gun fight to get hit in the gun arm or gun hand, or for their firearm to be hit.  The gun is usually out front, facing the person who they are firing at and or who is fireing at them.  People tend to equate the gun with the threat, so they focus on the gun hand.  Where the eyes...

    The repeated exoneration of allegedly racist cops by minority jurors and judges — from Ferguson and Staten Island to Cleveland and now Baltimore — seriously undermines the anti-cop movement started by Black Lives Matter and fueled by President Obama. With half the Baltimore cops now acquitted in the death of Freddie Gray, a pattern has emerged where highly publicized cases against cops for racially motivated murder of black suspects have crumbled under the weight of court evidence.

    Two speeches at the opening night of the GOP Convention stood in stark contrast in both their content and their treatment by the lamestream media.

They have largely ignored Patricia Smith, mother of Benghazi casualty Sean Smith, and her documentation of Hillary’s lies to the parents of the Benghazi dead in front of their son’s caskets. Melania may have paraphrased too close to the edge, but borrowing clichés about hard work and family does not plagiarism make and, even so, plagiarism is...

    Last week, the Rasmussen poll-which the media says has a 3.1% bias in favor of Republicans-found Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton by 7 points. And someone has forgotten to send instructions to the LA Times because their poll shows Trump leading by 3 points. Three MSM polls have Donald Trump trailing Hillary Clinton by between 3 and 7 points. Looking at the few internal numbers these polls provide makes one wonder how CNN reports Clinton up 49/42; NBC/ASJ Clinton up 46/41 and ABC/WaPo Clinton up 47/43. These offerings beg the question: How did they arrive at these numbers? The answer...

    Today, the Justice Department petitioned the Court “for re-hearing of this case before a full nine-Member Court.” Success is unlikely here. If five Justices wanted to hold the case until there was a ninth Justice, rather than deciding the case by a 4-4 margin, they could have simply held it over, like they did with Citizens United. That didn’t happen, which tells me that they could not broker a compromise internally. Instead, they made the somewhat striking decision to affirm by an equally divided margin. Nudging from OSG is unlikely to change the equation. The immediate effect of this petition...

My sons still own theirs. It was introduced to the United States in 1998. Nintendo was quick to capitalize on its popularity. The video game soon spawned a celebrated trading card game, books, movies and a television series.

That is really not all that unusual, despite what the race-obsessed media and political class would have you think. What’s beautiful is that they do it so audaciously and clearly understand they’re busting the media narrative of White Cops vs. Black Citizens. That narrative is Bolshevik and the public needs to understand that. Credit to WGN for showing this, and in its own way, cutting against the grain of its own industry, which wants a race...

    Before someone says President Obama did no such thing and that Baton Rouge, like Dallas, cannot be laid at his doorstep, let us consider his own statement that “words have consequences”. From Ferguson to Baltimore and beyond President Obama’s words have been the equivalent of yelling “fire” in a crowded theatre. He has encouraged a false narrative of racist cops and racist police departments whose officers are guilty until proven innocent, or buried, whichever comes first. If there is a Pearl Harbor in this war on cops, it was Ferguson, Missouri, where President Obama’s Justice Department sent 40 FBI agents...

    Our federal government was not assumed by royalty or nobility, but was created by the sovereign states. The creature and the limited delegated authority entrusted to it at creation cannot be superior in power to their creator. The federal government may be larger in size, but not necessarily greater in authority. Understanding this foundational principle and enforcing proper governmental boundaries are essential to protecting the people from the tyranny of a large, centralized government. America’s application of this principle is unique in that local elected officials are not considered lesser in terms of authority, but greater. For example, county sheriffs...

    Let’s make Paul Ryan the new Eric Cantor. Please donate to his challenger Paul Nehlen at http://www.paulnehlen.com/. Ryan’s lies are catching up to him. He is locked in a primary fight that, with your help, he can easily lose. A new poll in his district shows his challenger Paul Nehlen has closed up 30 points in the last six weeks and has Ryan down to 43% support. Nehlen is just 11 points down at 32%. With a huge 25% “undecided” it is very easy to envision the normal 70% of undecided voters who go to a challenger, going to Nehlen...

    ...Churchill returned to Britain and penned a two-volume work, “The (Nile) River War,” in which he wrote: “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! … The fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog. … Insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. … A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. …” Churchill continued: “The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a...

    Do we really need that wall and do you still plan on locking your doors tonight? Do you lock your doors at night? If you answered yes to this question, then tell me why? Do you lock them in order to keep out those you don’t know or those who might intend you harm? Do you lock them so strangers cannot enter your house at anytime of day or night? Do locked doors give you a feeling of security? Do you feel locking your doors will keep you and your family safe? Donald Trump promised to build a wall to...

    "I am sick and tired of the defamation of Donald Trump by the media and the Clinton campaign. This is a good man." One of the highlights here is when Rudy says he’s breaking a promise to Trump to reveal how Trump helped New York police officers in need and insisted on doing so anonymously. I should say, that’s one of the substantive highlights. I suppose the overall highlight is the rousing nature of the speech and the way it was received on the floor. I never understood why his own campaign in 2008 failed to take off. I’m sure...

    Ah, I remember my own days in the military fondly, but one of the biggest adjustments we had to make was learning that there was a set of instructions for doing everything from operating heavy machinery to washing your socks. Hey… that’s just military life for you. There’s always a manual to be referred to and if you get confused, there’s a manual listing all of the manuals. Take for example the rules about getting a sex change operation. You’ll want to make sure that you’ve checked in with the correct sources and… Wait a minute. What was that again?...
  • Help! Family of Heroin Addicts and what?

    Looking for some comments and any advice. I lost my only son to this horrible addiction to heroin just a few months ago. 4/2/16 Now I've been contacted by a nephew (in-law) who shares the same problems. I want to help him if I can. The thought I had was in addition to gathering his papers from another location, driving him with those papers to the Secretary of State office and paying for the new ID, that he needs to get a (for sure) new job. I would also give him a five dollar bill. And tell him he is...

    Not in the literal sense. Charles Manson wanted to incite a race war because he thought that after a race war that saw blacks kill all non blacks (Manson and his “family” would survive however…) that he would return to rule them. You can be pretty sure that the Black Lives Matter guys aren’t seeking to start a race war so they can be ruled by a white guy… But they certainly seem to want a race war.Just as Charles Manson was not connected with reality, the ideas behind the Black Lives Matter movement are equally disconnected to reality. Remember...
