    When it comes to common sense, it might be safe to say that CNN political commentator Sally Kohn missed a memo or two. Now some people are gathering signatures for a petition telling Kohn to put her life where her agenda is. There's a Change.org petition encouraging Kohn to travel to a place that enforces Sharia law. This petition came after Kohn tweeted at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying progressive Muslims believe in Sharia:

    The leader of the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has had enough of her country being under attack by Muslim migrants that have been allowed to invade her country by Angela Merkel’s insane policies. Following violent attacks, some specifically sexual in nature, Frauke Petry backed the arming of the German people against the Muslims. Yahoo News reports:

    Whether or not President Obama wants to publicly admit that he is harming the security of the United States, the proof is in the pudding. Fox News reported last Saturday that a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner released by Obama was arrested recently after being identified as a top recruiter for ISIS. According to Fox News:

    Subtitle: Republicans urged to join ‘Together for America Finance Council’ to defeat the GOP nominee. Hillary Clinton’s team is on the market for more millionaires. This time, Mitt Romney’s millionaires. After successfully encouraging disaffected, high-profile Republicans to publicly disavow their party’s nominee, Clinton’s campaign in the last two weeks has launched a coordinated effort to convince conservatives to give money to the only woman standing in Donald Trump’s way, and to get their friends to do the same.

    It's a sad day for socialists everywhere You may recall that the Bernie Sanders - the wealthy, multi-homed, socialist that he is - has a “thing” for breadlines. As he famously said: “It’s funny; sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing. In other countries, people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.” Bernie’s also had a lifelong affinity for the glorious socialist uprisings throughout South America and in Cuba. You and I might laugh at this,...

    It's about the abuse of the tax code to undermine federalism and the constitutional separation of powers You probably saw yesterday - and maybe you celebrated - the news that a federal judge has ordered a nationwide halt to the Obama policy of requiring states, cities and school districts to accommodate “transgender” bathroom usage or face the loss of federal funds. It’s certainly good news that the transgender nonsense has suffered a defeat. But if you think that’s all this is about, you’re missing a much larger point. Obama and the Democrats don’t even really care all that much about...

    We are scholars and informed citizens deeply concerned by the edict of the Supreme Court of the United States in Obergefell v. Hodges wherein the Court decreed, by the narrowest of margins, that every state in the country must redefine marriage to include same-sex relationships.   The Court’s majority opinion eschewed reliance on the text, logic, structure, or original understanding of the Constitution, as well as the Court’s own interpretative doctrines and precedents, and supplied no compelling reasoning to show why it is unjustified for the laws of the states to sustain marriage as it has been understood for millennia as the...

Judicial Watch continues to do the work the media don’t want to do in revealing the fundamental corruption of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. It sums up perfectly the pay-for-play corruption that characterized everything Hillary did as Secretary of State, and demonstrates in stunning details just how the Clinton Foundation was used to collect cash from suitors in exchange for favors. And at the center of it all was Mrs. Carlos Danger herself:

    It is time to recognize that devious bureaucrats and out of control federal agencies are the real enemies of economic mobility (In a bold move, HUD partnered with the Departments of Transportation and Education to create a massive alteration in the way children experience school. The program is designed to help low-income families grow financially. Instead, it accomplishes something much different.) HUD is the ‘gold’ standard of dangerously unchecked bureaucracies. Dangerous because the agency’s zealous moves already threaten property owners’ choices and undermine the authority of local public officials.

    It is the dogma of our time that proponents of government “safety net” programs hold the so-called moral high ground. Accordingly, progressives preen over their own “compassion;” and many who pretend to be conservatives chime in that they too “believe in safety net programs.” But safety net programs are unconstitutional and immoral. They are unconstitutional because “charity” is not one of the enumerated powers of the federal government.1 They are immoral because they are based on a fabricated system of man-made anti-rights which negate the Natural Rights God gave us.

    Many of us can remember when small towns and even big city neighborhoods almost always included a bowling alley a dry cleaner a drive-in movie and more recently a travel agency. Finding these establishments today is a tall order. The latest evidence regarding traditional political “horse race” polls suggests that this phenomenon might be degrading them as well. Last October, in a burst of honesty, the Gallup Company which is granddaddy of polling firms decided it had had enough. It could no longer overcome the duel barriers of widespread cell phone use and resistance to answering pollsters’ questions. Consequently, Gallup...

He claims this primitive way of hunting is the most ethical as it pits you against your game at close range with one throw to get your game. This type of hunting is for the elite hunter This allows game to have a better chance against a hunter than it would against a long distance rifle shooter or even a modern archery armed hunter.

    The western United States is chronically short of water and the situation can only get worse, barring some sort of major reversal of climate. I don't believe this is caused by climate change, but rather is an inevitable function of increasing population demands on a limited resource. With few exceptions, Lake Mead, designed to be a major supplier of water for southern California and Las Vegas, has been steadily dropping to the point where it may fail to produce any water in dry times of the cycle. Other reservoirs have been observed to dry up or lose over three quarters...

    The UN's protection of the alleged perpetrator Machar, added to the UN peacekeepers' failure to adequately protect civilians when they had the chance, adds up to a botched UN mission in South Sudan South Sudan, the youngest member state of the United Nations, began its life as an independent country with expressions of hope for a bright future. At the independence ceremony of South Sudan, held in its capital Juba on July 9, 2011, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon proclaimed that, after years of violence, “we open a new chapter: a day when the people of South Sudan claim the...

    Who knows the real motivation for his inattention to Louisiana, but at least we do know some good news, Obama leaves office in five months The Great Flood of 2016 has devastated 40,000 homes across the state of Louisiana. Sadly, 13 people have lost their lives in this historic storm, which produced up to 31 inches of rainfall in some areas over the course of four days. This is more rainfall than the City of Los Angeles experiences in four years. It was a storm that was so intense that it only happens once every one thousand years. Emergency officials...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's bid for Black votes was labeled "flawed" by his critics. In a speech in Wisconsin this week Trump maintained that Democratic policies have worsened the plight of minorities. This view was assailed by Democrats and their media supporters. "Trump's contention that minorities are the foremost victims of the breakdown in law and order doesn't excuse his failure to reach out to the Black Lives Matter group," contended CNN talking head Carol Costello. "By refusing to bring BLM inside the tent he leaves them no option but to burn down neighborhoods, beat white folks, and agitate...

    A Jihadi with a machete attacked two policewomen at the checkpoint outside of Belgian police headquarters in the city of Charleroi, on Saturday afternoon, 6 August, 2016.  One woman was seriously injured, another suffered minor wounds, and the third shot the attacker with the machete before he could inflict more damage. From the articles that I have read, it appears she was armed with a pistol. From the BBC.com: A man shot by police after he attacked two officers with a machete in the Belgian city of Charleroi has died. The women officers' injuries are not life-threatening. The assailant...

    The DCLeaks document dump exposes the pro-Islamist Left's sinister attempt to slime truth-tellers about Jihad. Radical left-wing billionaire George Soros developed a strategy five years ago to publicly disparage, delegitimize, and marginalize conservatives like David Horowitz who go to great pains to warn Americans about the threat posed by political Islam and the ongoing Islamization of the U.S. It is part of the Left’s push to create an alternate reality in which world temperatures claimed to be rising at an imperceptibly slow rate pose more of a threat to mankind than militants flying commercial jetliners into skyscrapers. Soros is a...
  • It’s about time: Trump makes first swing state ad buys - here’s the initial spot

    Will it work? Update: initial reports suggested Trump had already spent $60 million on ads. That’s not the case. Today’s buy total just $4 million, but more is to come. The eventual total has not been announced. The piece has been altered to reflect this. Here in Michigan, we don’t see too many Presidential campaign ads. That’s because, at least in terms of the top of the ticket, Democrats have dominated the state since 1988. Those of you who live in battleground states? I feel your pain.

    When Democratic Convention delegate Gwen Snyder went to this year’s convention in Philadelphia she never expected to by sexually accosted by anyone, let alone a fellow delegate. When she was sexually molested by the male delegate Snyder expected to be treated with respect and have her complaint taken seriously by Democrat District Attorney Seth Williams’ office. That is exactly what did not happen. The determined Snyder called the Special Victims Unit in the belief that since she was the victim of a crime she had only to follow instructions to get justice. She was taken to the august sounding Philadelphia...

    There have been numerous articles about the crime of the century that’s only 16 years old. In one, it’s claimed that a crowd of screaming Brazilians, eager to taste American blood surrounded the car he was in, banging on it, apparently on the verge of being a murderous mob, so much so that the harried by the lies of Lochte Rio police had to save him out of a total dedication to law enforcement principles. But oddly, nowhere in the article that contains dozens of photos do we see a murderous mob. Only a mob of reporters surrounding the car...
