  • More Ocasio-Cortez: Low Unemployment Rate Is Because More People Have Two Jobs, You Know

    Hot Air ^ | July 17, 2018 | Ed Morrissey
    Jazz earlier described Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a gift to the GOP, but perhaps more accurately, she’s a gift that keeps on giving. So too for that matter is her appearance with Margaret Hoover on PBS’ Firing Line this weekend. Not only did she fumble an answer on the “Palestinian occupation,” Ocasio-Cortez managed to err completely on a basic economic question — despite her supposed expertise in the subject:

    I believe it was only yesterday when Ed Morrissey described New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as “the gift that keeps on giving.” Well, the giving continues today and it’s only getting better. (Editor’s note: The phrase “better” may only apply if you are a conservative.) She gave an interview to Democracy Now! this week where she set forth some of her agenda for her swelling army of socialist supporters on the Democratic left flank. Rather than focusing on new progressive policy initiatives or getting out the vote, Ocasio-Cortez called on the unwashed masses to take to the streets in...

    Two people were injured when bottle rockets were thrown at them during a demonstration in Carroll County, Westminster police said. Police were called around 1:30 p.m. Saturday to an assault on Main Street. Two women were participating in the Westminster Patriots Resist Rally across the street from the Westminster branch of the Carroll County Public Library System around 1 p.m. when a vehicle drove by and they heard a loud bang, police said. ...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that he wouldn't be "intimidated" by protesters who have confronted him in public several times this year. "I'm not sure what about my career has led them to believe that I am easily intimidated. ... This is all about intimidation. It's not about persuasion but about intimidation. And I assure you I will not be intimidated by these groups of socialists who apparently prefer open borders," McConnell told reporters in Kentucky. McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were confronted as they left an event near Washington last month by protesters over...

    RUSH: Mark in Fort Worth, Texas, is next, and it’s your turn. Hello. CALLER: Hello, Rush. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to make the host look good this afternoon. I wanted to take events of the last 72 hours and dovetail them with what you’ve been preaching to us for about the last two years, and that is that the media’s number one priority is separating Trump voters from Trump. In the last 72 hours, the cacophony from the left and the media has been so outrageous in part because I think the Kavanaugh decision, along...

    We should expect more of this dangerous behavior from the unhinged mob on the left Many years ago, Democrats were known for their staunch support of peaceful protests and our First Amendment rights guaranteeing free speech. Today, party activists have become intolerant, hateful and, in too many cases, violent. It seems that almost every week a Trump administration official or supporter is being badgered by leftist protesters. It happened to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a restaurant and at her home. Both Senior White House Policy Advisor Stephen Miller and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt were recently harassed at...

    Town Hall ^ | 7/8/2018 | Matt Vespa
    The first meltdown over the Supreme Court was epic. Justice Anthony Kennedy let the Trump White House know shortly after the official end of the 2017 term that he’s out by the end of July. He’s heading into retirement and creating a vacancy that gives conservatives the opportunity to have a solid majority on the Court. Of course, the Left went into full meltdown mode. From liberal journalists to former Clinton officials and strategists, it was a mix of flipping off Justice Kennedy and warning red state Democrats not to cave on whoever President Trump pick unless they’re fine getting...

    A few months back, I experienced what a friend of mine and many libertarians and conservative parents say they have experienced: My teenagers started spouting leftist platitudes. Being combative and sarcastic by nature (since all Cubans are born with a sharp tongue), we all ended up angry and frustrated. Upon subsequent calm reflection, I realized I had accomplished nothing. And so I tried another approach. To my complete surprise, there was a 180-degree turnaround in the teens’ views. I would now like to share the tactics I used and give the following advice to those who are at wit’s end.

    American Thinker ^ | July 7, 2018 | Christopher Knight
    Yield Mary Shelley a kind eye. The first science-fiction novelist had no precedent in avoiding engineering errors. Such was never the point. Shelley's motive was to probe the persona rather than postulate the possibilities. If Shelley's tale contains any glaring technical gaffe, it must be that young Victor Frankenstein possessed knowledge of sinew and collagen that even modern scientists lack. His cadaverous creation might be infused with vigors and nostrums to imbue metabolism, but that would not be enough. In reality, the pathetic being would have torn itself apart attempting to get off the table, leaving nothing on the slab...

    Man Arrested After Threatening To Kill GOP Rep. Zeldin Campaign Worker. “A man was arrested in Suffolk County, New York on Friday for making “terroristic threats” against a campaign worker for GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin. . . . According to the release, Astrof threatened to kill supporters of Congressman Lee Zeldin and President Donald Trump at Zeldin’s campaign headquarters in New York.” Here’s the police report. HISTORY’S BAD IDEAS ARE AN INSPIRATION FOR PROGRESSIVES, Victor Davis Hanson writes: Yet 19th-century nullification is the font of the current “sanctuary city” law adopted by nearly 500 American cities that declare federal immigration...
  • Did Philly police just bike-doze Mayor Kenney's relationship with progressives?

    Mayor Kenney faced a backlash from progressives after police officers on Thursday bike-dozed a modest encampment of protesters trying to shut down access to a local office for the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The mayor, who has held plenty of high-profile news conferences in City Hall to decry President Trump’s zero tolerance on immigration, was nowhere to be found as police officers used bikes to push down beach umbrellas and other encampment equipment. Kenney spokeswoman Deana Gamble said the mayor shared activists’ frustration with ICE. However, she said, protesters cannot obstruct access to the ICE building at Eighth and...

    A rabid anti-Trump West Goshen resident is accused of killing his neighbor and prominent GOP committeeman in the latest chapter of an ongoing feud that came to a boil late Monday night. Police allege 51-year-old Clayton Carter III and GOP committeeman Brooks Jennings got into a dispute about video recording and cursing in the back yard around 8 p.m. Monday. PennLive reports Carter pulled a gun on Jennings during the argument but officers resolved the conflict.

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 3, 2018 | Dennis Prager
    Because of the ever-descending moral and intellectual state of the mainstream news media, there has been no outcry against the leftists who call President Donald Trump and all Americans who support him Nazis. Indeed, members of the media now regularly do so. Without that outcry, this labeling will only increase; and this steadily increasing drumbeat of hysteria is likely to lead to one result: violence against conservatives. It is not plausible to foresee any other outcome of left-wing normalization of the terms “Nazi” and “white supremacist.” The American left has put itself in a moral quandary: Either it doesn’t mean...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Liberals just keep coming out of the anti-America closet, Part 6,582.: Some guy named Dylan Matthews, writing at the far-leftwing fake news site, ran a piece on July 4 titled “3 Reasons the American Revolution was a Mistake.” The piece includes the usual complaints about America’s horrible treatment of native Americans, which are mostly true, but then moves to unsupported claims that slavery would have somehow ended sooner without the Revolution and – hilariously – that the British parliamentary form of government is somehow far superior to the American Republic. Obviously,...

I find it disturbing that some take modern opinion & obliterate the past. Isn’t progress @ learning from our mistakes?🤔
