  • Note To 'Experts': Obama Is Not a Top 10 President

    When "presidential politics experts" ranked all presidents, past and current, the headlines typically focused on Trump’s position at the bottom of the list. After one year—a year with a booming economy, increased business and consumer confidence, and significant gains on the foreign policy front—they have concluded that Trump is the worst president of all time. There’s no chance of any partisan bias there, right?Trump's record is certainly up for debate, but even famed liberal pollster Nate Silver wrote off the rankings as partisan garbage in a tweet. "It speaks poorly to the field of presidential scholarship that political scientists have Trump...

    Are you allowed guns in Russia? Found this information. Individuals are not allowed to carry guns acquired for self-defense; a license only serves as a carrying permit for hunting and sport firearms when these guns need to be transported. Russian citizens may not own guns that shoot in bursts or have magazines with more than a ten-cartridge capacity.
  • Illegals commit crimes at double the rate of native-born: Study.....

    The report, from the Crime Prevention Research Center, used a previously untapped set of data from Arizona that detailed criminal convictions and found that illegal immigrants between 15 and 35 are less than 3 percent of the state’s population, but nearly 8 percent of its prison population. And the crimes they were convicted of were, on the whole, more serious, said John R. Lott Jr., the report’s author and president of the research center. His findings also challenge the general narrative that immigrants commit fewer crimes. Those past studies usually don’t look at legal versus illegal populations, .... Mr. Lott...

    California likes to boast that its booming economy is the sixth largest in the world – as calculated by its own state government. In contrast, rust belt states like Michigan and Ohio are seen as pathetic economic has-beens by the self-congratulating liberal elite. Not so fast, says Carson Bruno in Real Clear Markets. Adjust for cost of living, which is 36% higher than the national average, and California comes out behind Mexico:

    It is not “whitey” who is committing 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders, 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties throughout the United States. Despite comprising only about 15 percent of the population in those counties. 91 percent of blacks are murdered by other blacks. Blacks comprise 10 percent of the population, but commit 42 percent of the robberies and 34 percent of felonies. In a report from the Department of Justice, over a 30-year period between 1980 and 2008, blacks committed half of all homicides in the United States despite comprising only 13 percent of...

    (In July President Trump promoted American made products from all 50 states in the White House including a Stetson cowboy hat from Texas. This was just one of his campaign promises – to buy American goods and to hire American employees.) To date President Trump is true to his campaign promises. Here is a list of President Trump’s Accomplishments with comparisons to Congress and Obama. President Trump started off as aggressive as any President ever in working for the American people as he promised. In President Trump’s first six months since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock...

    Between 1960 and 2014, healthcare spending in the United States increased: from an average of $146/person per year to $9,532 (by 65 times). from an inflation-adjusted average of $1,172/person per year to $9,544 (by 8 times). from 5.0% of the nation’s economy (gross domestic product) to 17.5% (by 3.5 times).[1] * In 1942, the price for a maternity room at Christ Hospital in Jersey City, NJ was $7.00 per day.[3] Adjusting for inflation, this amounts to $97.29 in 2011 dollars.[4] In 2011, the price for a maternity room at the same hospital was $1,360 per day.[5] * In 1980, the...

    FBI crime report figures show that Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming–three states that abolished their concealed requirement years ago–have since witnessed a decreased in handgun murders. This runs completely counter to the left’s doom and gloom predictions whereby they claim doing away with a government-issued carry permit will mean more bad guys carrying guns, more shootings and violence, etc. FBI figures published by the NRA show that Alaska’s handgun murder rate “declined after the state enacted permitless carry in 2003.” Moreover, in the years since Alaska’s permit requirement was abolished “handgun murders have declined as a percentage of the total number...

    Hillary Clinton Lost the Election Because Millions of Democrats Did Not Vote and Jonathan Webber, a pundit, couldn’t figure out why this happened. I was curious about the extra 10 million votes for Obama. Why did that totally vanish this year? According to the media and black rioters and their leftist white terrorists in the streets, Hillary won. But why didn’t all this phantom voters show up at the polls this year? This was supposed to be a contentious, hard election that rallied the troops…yet 10 million of the DNC voters didn’t show up at the polls at all this...

    There is much talk about “the talk.” “Sean O’Reilly was 16 when his mother gave him the talk that most black parents give their teenage sons,” Denisa R. Superville of the Hackensack (NJ) Record tells us. Meanwhile, down in Atlanta: “Her sons were 12 and 8 when Marlyn Tillman realized it was time for her to have the talk,” Gracie Bonds Staples writes in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Leonard Greene talks about the talk in the New York Post. Someone bylined as KJ Dell’Antonia talks about the talk in The New York Times. Darryl Owens talks about the talk in...

    Mediaite ^ | 11/30/2015 | Josh Feldman
    Ted Cruz pushed back against the media coverage of the Planned Parenthood shooting today and made a pretty strong assertion about which party most violent criminals belong to. Radio host Hugh Hewitt told Cruz that, given how some in the media have attempted to connect pro-life rhetoric to the shooting, he has never encountered a pro-life individual who would condone violence. Cruz agreed and said whenever tragedy strikes, the media's "salivating" and "hoping desperately that the murderer happens to be a Republican." And then he said, "Here's the simple and undeniable fact: the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats....
  • The Big Gay Lie: Few people understand how harmful the promiscuous gay lifestyle is

    While gays are our siblings in Christ, the gay lifestyle is nothing like the straight lifestyle. That’s why we have to condemn the gay lifestyle because we love gays as people, just as we condemn smoking out of love for smokers. One of the key reasons that gay “marriage” has won as much public support as it has is that few people understand how harmful the massively promiscuous gay lifestyle is.  The Big Gay Lie (BGL) is that the gay lifestyle is the same as the straight lifestyle. The BGL has a number of facets including: Lots of people are...

    Don’t expect @JessicaValenti or any other feminist to mention the names Qumaire Rainey, Edward London and Casey Franks: One of several victims of a Jan. 19 home invasion and robbery was sexually assaulted four times by three of the assailants, according to Metro’s arrest report. Three teens arrested in the attacks were in court Friday morning. The judge set no bail for 18-year-old Qumaire Rainey, 18, Edward London, 17, and Casey Franks, 16. . . . The attacks and robbery began about 7:30 p.m. when four male teens kicked in the door of the home in the southwest Las Vegas...

    If evangelical Christianity is famous for anything in contemporary American politics, it is for its complete opposition to gay marriage. Now, slowly yet undeniably, evangelicals are changing their minds.Every day, evangelical communities across the country are arriving at new crossroads over marriage. My magazine story for TIME this week, “A Change of Heart,” is a deep dive into the changing allegiances and divides in evangelical churches and communities over homosexuality. In public, so many churches and pastors are afraid to talk about the generational and societal shifts happening. But behind the scenes, it’s a whole different game. Support for gay...

    1) P_resident Obama's own Department of Justice completed a six-year study on college rape, and it turns out that instead of 1-in-5 college coeds being raped, the figure is 0.03-in-5. Less than 1 percent of college students are the victim of a sexual assault -- 0.6 percent to be exact -- not to be confused with the 20 percent, or "one in five," claimed by feminists and President Obama. -- Ann Coulter2) In Â’92, the general sense was that New York was rotting from the inside.

    Much has been written, often with considerable glee, about the worsening divide in the Republican Party between its corporate and Tea Party wings. Yet Democrats may soon face their own schism as a result of the growing power in the party of high-tech business interests. Gaining the support of tech moguls is a huge win for the Democrats — at least initially. They are not only a huge source of money, they also can provide critical expertise that the Republicans have been far slower to employ. There have always been affluent individuals who backed liberal or Democratic causes, either out...
