  • George Will Is Wrong about Masterpiece Cakeshop: The Right NOT to Promote a Message is Protected

    National Review ^ | 12/05/2017 | David French
    It’s astounding how many defenses of the state’s position in Masterpiece Cakeshop depend on misrepresentation and misconceptions. Last week I wrote about the most common misrepresentation — that Jack Phillips discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation when he refused to design a custom cake for a same-sex-wedding celebration. After all, he served all customers — regardless of race, sex, or sexual orientation. He just consistently refused to design cakes that advanced messages he disagreed with. No person of any identity has the legal authority to compel an artist to use his talents to advance a cause the artist...

    Jerry Lewis certainly got in the last laugh when it came to his strained relationship with his children. According to his Last Will and Testament, provided to PEOPLE by The Blast, the funnyman emphatically cut out all six children he had with his first wife Patti Palmer — meaning they will [inherit] nothing.

    President Trump's speech in Warsaw was a remarkable statement from a western leader in the 21st century - which is why the enforcers of our public discourse have gone bananas over it and denounced it as "blood and soil" "nativism" (The New Republic), "racial and religious paranoia" (The Atlantic), and "tinpot dictator sh*t" (some comedian having a meltdown on Twitter). Much of the speech was just the usual boosterish boilerplate that one foreign leader sloughs off while visiting the capital of another. But that wasn't what caused the mass pearl-clutching. This was the offending passage: There is nothing like our...

    The Secret Service has reportedly said it will open an investigation into Madonna after the singer told the Women's March on Washington that she had thought about 'blowing up the White House'. Donning a black p***yhat, the music icon caused controversy by dropping the F-bomb four times, sparking a slew of apologies from broadcasters airing the protest live. She went on to speak of her rage at the election result, telling the crowd she had thought a lot about 'blowing up the White House' but knew that it 'wouldn't change anything'. According to the Gateway Pundit, a spokesman for the...
  • Obama: I Will Criticize Trump if ‘Necessary or Helpful’

    In a Sunday press conference in Lima, Peru, President Barack Obama said he may not follow former President George W. Bush’s lead to not publicly criticize his successor. Instead, Obama left the opportunity to speak out on President-elect Donald Trump if he deems it “necessary or helpful.” “I want to be respectful of the office and give the president-elect an opportunity to put forward his platform and his arguments without somebody popping off in every instance,” Obama said. “As an American citizen who cares deeply about our country, if there are issues that have less to do with the specifics...

    IBD ^ | 7/26/2016 | George Will
    En route to fight one of his many duels, French politician Georges Clemenceau bought a one-way train ticket. Was he pessimistic? "Not at all. I always use my opponent's return ticket for the trip back." Some Hillary Clinton advisors, although not that serene, think her victory is probable and can be assured. Her challenge is analogous to Ronald Reagan's in 1980, when voters were even more intensely dissatisfied than they now are. There were hostages in Iran and stagflation's "misery index" (the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates) was 21.98. By August 1979, 84% of Americans said the country...
  • The Cubs Have A Smaller Chance Of Winning Than Trump Does

    Five Thirty Eight ^ | Oct 30, 2016 at 7:53 AM | Rob Arthur
    It will be hard for the Cubs to come back from this 3-1 deficit. As the Cavaliers taught us earlier this year, a 3-1 lead isn’t insurmountable, but Elo rates the Cubs’ the total chance of winning the Series at a measly 15 percent. (That’s a smaller chance than FiveThirtyEight’s election forecast model currently gives Donald Trump to win the White House.) But if Chicago is going to have any chance of a Series win, they’ll have to awaken their bats in Sunday’s game.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We've got George Will. I cannot tell you how this disappoints me. George Will -- way back, long ago when I was still spinning records as a disc jockey -- was an idol of mine. I remember I met George Will in Dallas in 1992, Republican convention. I was there, having been sent there by a radio station in Kansas City that wanted to get me out of town. So they sent me down to Dallas and said, "Go down there and prepare commentaries and then send 'em back. We might air them and we might not."...

    George Will, a Pulitzer Prize–winning conservative journalist who ripped up his Republican card this year after Donald Trump's nomination, says a narrow GOP defeat would be "the worst conceivable outcome" for the party. FBI Director James Comey's announcement of the discovery of possibly new Hillary Clinton emails last Friday appears to have shaken up national polls, narrowing the gap between the two candidates. But Will said a narrow defeat would fuel "the old stab-in-the-back theory," with party members blaming Trump dissenters like House Speaker Paul Ryan and Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse for dividing Republicans.

    Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election. Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters. “Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon. Will said he changed...

    Hillary Clinton (pending the conclusion of the criminal investigations about her emails and the Clinton Foundation which linger on) may well be the Democratic nominee. As it is perfectly clear that Trump will win the Republican nomination the #NeverTrump bleats are beginning to fade. Many have realized that their arguments are ridiculous, and are more related to the diminution of their power to affect opinion than they are to substance. This week, as well, the administration gets its failures in foreign and domestic policy off the front pages as the loony press attempts to justify his public school unisex bathroom...

But you keep holding your own, and we have our campaign plan. I mean, everybody has to do it the way they want to...

    Saturday following GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s victory in the South Carolina Republican primary, political consultant Roger Stone explained to Fox News Channel’s Hannity that Trump’s path to victory was to unite the so-called “anti-establishment vote.” “You just described the path victory for Donald Trump,” Stone said. “The anti-establishment vote, which is repudiating the foreign policy, immigration policy, trade policy, fiscal policies of the Bush wing of the Republican party is in a majority, which is why Trump will ultimately be the nominee. When they say oh, well Bush getting out, that’ll strengthenSen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% , yes, but Ben Carson’s...

    Islam teaches that God's will is supreme. But Islam ignores that God is also infinitely rational. And Islam misunderstands what God's will fundamentally is. Will and Intellect are the two main attributes of spiritual beings, among Whom are three varieties, God, angels and humans. Islam over-emphasizes God's omnipotence, so that Islam deprecates God's infinite rationality. God is portrayed in Islam as asking the angels what the animals are named, to which they reply, in effect, "We don't know their names because You did not tell us". The Islamic attitude toward God's rationality seems to be that He doesn't have to...

    A hundred years from now, when future historians are rooting around the monumental life and times of Ronald Reagan, they will begin with his two auto biographies, Where’s The Rest of Me? and An American Life. They will then move on to Lou Cannon’s five excellent books covering various aspects of Ronald Reagan’s life. Then, they will turn to the books edited by Marty and Annelise Anderson and Kiron Skinner, A Life In Letters and In His Own Hand, two wonderfully long books of chosen letters of the Gipper. They also wrote a book of Reagan’s radio broadcasts, also important....
