  • Why The Left Is Intellectually Bereft

    11/11/2018 7:22:04 AM PST · by Kaslin · 34 replies ^ | November 11, 2018 | Bruce Bialosky
    If you don’t like the Left, you can probably come up with many reasons you believe they don’t measure up in their intellectual capabilities, some of those may be questionable. Over the years, the reason I have found most egregious and irrefutable rests with my involvement with this publication. Recently, I was working on background for a panel discussion on California propositions prior to the election. I found the director of the Public Policy Institute of California's Water Policy Center. PPIC is clearly a left-of-center think tank. I was researching information for a proposition to commit another $8.89 BILLION in...
  • Tucker Carlson Antifa Riot Hints Cuba’s Campaign to Export Mob Attacks Is Succeeding

    The mob attack on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home this week by radical Marxists – leaving his home with a broken door and vandalized with leftist slogans – has triggered widespread shock on the part of most decent Americans. For those aware of the way “Antifa” elements operate internationally, however, the incident was nothing new. Pro-democracy and right-leaning political activists, journalists, and artists 90 miles from our shores, fighting for their rights in communist Cuba, have faced similar mob attacks on their homes for years. Unlike the Carlson incident, in Cuba, the government actively organizes the mobs. The riots...

    “America’s Got Talent” alum Benton Blount abruptly lost his opening-act gig on ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons' concert tour after his pro-Trump Facebook post got him temporarily banned from the social media website. Blount was four shows into the seven-show slot when he learned he was kicked off the tour, South Carolina’s Greenville News reported. The post showed Blount wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and an “I Voted” sticker on Election Day while holding a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and drink. The photo carried the caption, "Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done!...

    mrcNEWSBUSTERS ^ | November 8, 2018 | Kyle Drennen
    In a string of disturbing tweets Thursday afternoon, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias actually justified a mob of left-wing Antifa activists surrounding the home of Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and terrorizing his family. Even as other journalists and pundits across the political spectrum condemned the incident, Yglesisas insisted that he “cannot empathize” with Carlson or his family. In response to liberal Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty denouncing the actions of the Antifa thugs via Twitter, Yglesias launched his offensive tweetstorm by proclaiming: “I think the idea behind terrorizing his family, like it or not as a strategy,...

    The group is threatening Carlson and demanding that he leave town, saying that "tonight, we remind you that you are not safe either." BREAKING. Activists ring doorbell, hold protest at the Washington DC area home of @TuckerCarlson, racist, sexist, bigoted FOX News personality. So far no one has opened the door. "Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!"#KnockKnockTucker — Smash Racism DC (@SmashRacismDC) November 7, 2018 It is unclear if Carlson's wife or four children are currently at home. It is unlikely that the host was home, as the harassment began less than an...
  • Maxine Waters: Violent Protests ‘Make America Better’, Republicans Should ‘Feel Uncomfortable’

    Over the weekend, California Representative Maxine Waters once again defended her public statements encouraging her supporters to harass and assault their political opponents in mobs. During a Saturday appearance on the “Roland Martin Unfiltered” web show, Waters insisted that such protests “make America better” because protestors are fighting for “justice and equality for everybody.” Rather than deny that she has been encouraging violent behavior against Republicans, Waters justified such tactics by claiming that the very nature of protests is to make their targets “feel uncomfortable”: “I told someone the other day who is trying to say that we are violent...

(Center Street Books/ Hachette Book Group ) A new book by shooting survivor Rep. Steve Scalise is hitting bookstores in mid-November. In “Back in the Game: One Gunman, Countless Heroes, and the Fight for My Life,” the Louisiana Republican — who was gravely wounded by a lone gunman during a baseball practice last year — talks about his journey to recovery.

    "Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin joined Sean Hannity to deliver a passionate case against Democrats, the liberal media, celebrities and more, with less than a week to go before the crucial midterm elections. "We're actually fighting the media, we're fighting the Democrats, we're fighting academia, we're fighting Hollywood and all the rest," Levin said. He said people who support President Trump and an "America First" agenda are all too often accused of being racists, sexists or white supremacists, and "it's time to push back."

  • When Laws Are Not Enforced, Anarchy Follows

    11/01/2018 4:02:21 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | November 1, 2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    What makes citizens obey the law is not always their sterling character. Instead, fear of punishment -- the shame of arrest, fines or imprisonment -- more often makes us comply with laws. Law enforcement is not just a way to deal with individual violators but also a way to remind society at large that there can be no civilization without legality. Or, as 17th-century British statesman George Savile famously put it: "Men are not hanged for stealing horses, but that horses may not be stolen." In the modern world, we call such prompt, uniform and guaranteed law enforcement "deterrence," from...

    Law enforcement is investigating after someone threatened to blow up the Grand Traverse County Republican Headquarters. Deputies say it happened around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday at the GOP headquarters in Cherryland Mall. Employees say the suspect had a sign that said "Trump is Satan" and started going off on a rant about Republicans. When he was asked to leave, employees say he made a statement about blowing the place up and took off. Investigators brought in a bomb sniffing dog as a precautionary measure and deemed the place safe just before 5:00 p.m.
  • Democrats Blaming Normal Americans for Nuts Will Blow Up In Their Faces at the Ballot Box

    10/28/2018 10:11:23 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | October29, 2018 | Kurt Schlichter
    You know, there's nothing that Normal Americans can identify with more than a guy living in a Ford panel van covered with Trump memes and soccer manifestoes who sends bombs that don't work to Democrats who support policies that don't work. Likewise, Normal people totally identify with – let me get the liberal narrative du jour right here – a Trump-hating freak who shoots up a synagogue. And I think it’s a terrific midterm strategy for our Democrat friends is to keep making that idiotic case. (extreme sarcasm for the benefit of the willfully obtuse) The Official Media is in...

    Townhall ^ | Oct. 30, 2018 | Stephen Moore
    Here is Moore's rule of modern-day politics: The better the economy performs under President Donald Trump and the more successes he racks up, the more unhinged the left becomes. It's a near linear relationship. And it goes for media as well. That's why the monthly jobs announcements and the quarterly GDP reports, like the one released Oct. 26, are the unhappiest days of the year for the Trump haters. News of 3.5 to 4 percent growth and 7 million surplus jobs are the bane of the resistance movement's existence. So with the economy flying high, the pundits who predicted Trump...

    At least four shots were fired into a Republican campaign satellite office in Volusia County, Fla. on Sunday, police announced after a campaign volunteer reported the shooting Monday morning. No one was injured in the shooting, which broke the front windows and displaced drywall inside the office, South Daytona police captain Mark Cheatham told the Orlando Sentinel. There were no eyewitnesses, but police are seeking surveillance footage to try and determine who is responsible.

    It was ironic to see many of the same liberals, who recently fought to prop up the world’s most powerful Jew-hating terror state, lecturing us on the importance of combating anti-Semitism. But there they were yesterday. [snip] For those who confuse progressivism with Judaism — which is to say many — it might be difficult to understand that undermining the Democratic Party isn’t an act of anti-Semitism. The Trump administration, in fact, has been the most pro-Jewish in memory. Every Jew who’s ever prayed understands the importance of Jerusalem in our faith, culture, and history. It was President Trump, not...

    Donald Trump is inside Obama's head, and Barack just can't handle it. At one time in our nation’s history, there was an unwritten tenet that former presidents should remain quiet during their successor’s term. It was considered discourteous, even boorish, to criticize the man who took your place. But the political equivalent of, “I’ve had my turn. Now it’s yours,” is something Barack Obama cannot abide. On the campaign trail this week, he exhibited behavior not in keeping with a former president or an erudite Harvard man – but a crude vulgarian. Couple this with his other gift of segregating...

    MSNBC Host Katy Tur got a little testy with conservative commentator Erick Erickson, who dared to bring up that the Left has become unspooled since Donald Trump's upset win over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Over the past few days, 13 devices that look like bombs have been mailed to prominent Democrats, including former presidents, and celebrities. We just had an arrest in Florida, but we don't know what their political leanings are, if any, or a motive. We don’t know. Yet, the liberal news media know exactly who it is: Donald Trump…and his supporters. We’re to blame for the Left becoming...
