  • What do Leftists think about the 2018 election?

    American Thinker ^ | November 17, 2018 | Gary Gindler
    ... However, apart from ideology, all the leftist parties of the United States are united by the amazing ability to transform election day into election week, and then into election month. Moreover, if you gave free rein to the Trotskyists, then their slogan, "permanent revolution" would be replaced by the slogan, "permanent elections." Differences in the assessment of the current events by the American leftist parties are not something extraordinary. Traditionally, the leftists criticize all those who appear to be to the right of themselves. Therefore, for example, the Trotskyists are always criticized only on the right, and no one...
  • Zhores Medvedev, 93, Dissident Scientist Who Felt Moscow’s Boot, Is Dead

    Zhores A. Medvedev, the Soviet biologist, writer and dissident who was declared insane, confined to a mental institution and stripped of his citizenship in the 1970s after attacking a Stalinist pseudoscience, died on Thursday at his home in London, where he had lived for decades. He had turned 93 the day before. Dr. Medvedev’s twin brother, the historian Roy Medvedev, told the Russian news media that the cause was a heart attack. He said his family had celebrated Dr. Medvedev’s birthday on Wednesday. “He had never complained about his heart,” he told RBC, a Russian news agency. “Three ambulances came,...
  • The new Title IX rules, while imperfect, are an improvement

    A draft of the new Title IX rules from the Department of Education was circulated a couple of months ago and they predictably had progressive groups setting their hair on fire. The final version has now been rolled out and, while there were some minor (but troubling) changes made, those same groups aren’t going to be any happier. The days of kangaroo courts hearing questions of criminal law at schools where cases of sexual assault or harassment are concerned won’t be ending entirely, but they will be decidedly more fair to all parties concerned. (Reason) This guidance will replace an...
  • ‘You should have died in the Holocaust’: Neo-Nazi harassment is not free speech, judge rules

    One emailer wrote: ““You are a disgusting, vile Jew … This is OUR country: you’re merely living here (for now).” A caller said: “You should have died in the Holocaust with the rest of your people.” But the calls that most disturbed Tanya Gersh consisted only of the sound of gunshots being fired. The terror campaign — known as a “troll storm” — was the result of Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin’s December 2016 directive, urging hundreds of thousands of readers to harass the Jewish woman and her family, according to court filings. Gersh sued the known neo-Nazi. On Wednesday,...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a measure allowing utilities to bill their customers to pay for future legal settlements stemming from devastating 2017 wildfires. Brown announced Friday he'd signed the bill, which is aimed at preventing bankruptcy for Pacific Gas & Electric Co. The massive utility faces billions of dollars in liability if investigators determine its equipment caused the Tubbs Fire that destroyed thousands of homes and killed 22 people in Santa Rosa last year. The measure is the most hotly contested part of a wide-ranging plan to reduce the growing threat of wildfires.

    FULL TITLE: Mother who was encouraged to abort her unborn baby because medics thought he had Downs Syndrome warns others to get a second opinion after he was born perfectly healthy The adamant Mum and her partner, Johnathan, 30, who had already suffered the devastation of a miscarriage, were both infuriated by the doctors response and refused the termination, but were left in complete shock when their son Jay was born healthy. Jordan, a stay-at-home mum, said: 'When we attended my 12-week-scan, I knew straight away something was wrong because the midwife seemed to be concerned. 'She asked if we...

    President Donald Trump said Saturday that the New York Times should retract a story claiming he was questioning Vice President Mike Pence’s loyalty. “Mike Pence is 100 percent,” Trump said. “Not even a doubt about it in my mind. He’s been a trooper. … I could not be happier, and I don’t question his loyalty at all,” Trump added about the story as he left the White House for a trip to visit the wildfire devastation in California. Trump ridiculed the reporters of the article for not asking him for a comment. “How do you do a story like that?”...

    During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on CNN's lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” The panel rushed to Acosta’s defense, in addition to spouting the usual talking points about how Sarah Sanders is a liar. The liberal co-hosts on The View ultimately concluded that President Trump “does not like to be asked tough questions he doesn’t want to answer.” After explaining to President Trump that “that’s their job” to ask tough questions, co-host Whoopi Goldberg advised President Trump: “if you can’t handle it, get out of the kitchen,...

    Nothing in New York law gives state and local law enforcement agencies the authority to detain inmates for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on immigration charges, a state appeals court said in a ruling aimed at a policy initiated by Suffolk County officials. The unanimous ruling by the Appellate Division, Second Department rejected the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department’s policy of keeping inmates who are the subjects of ICE detention or deportation orders for up to 48 hours after the time that they normally would have been released and immediately notifying immigration authorities. While inmates are under the 48-hour immigration hold,...
  • Walking the Atlantic City Boardwalk in 1928

    11/17/2018 2:14:59 PM PST · by SamAdams76 · 9 replies
    Well this is a window into a different world. A six minutes video of walking through the Atlantic City Boulevard 90 years ago. Everybody, and I mean everybody in either full suits or dresses. Even the children. Almost everybody in a hat. Instead of Uber, you had pushcarts (called rolling chairs). Hundreds of pushcarts that are especially prevalent towards the end of the video. All pushed by men in suits. Even today, the push carts persist on the Atlantic City boardwalk. I might be mistaken but I believe that the wooden planks you see in the video are pretty much...

    In a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The tactic is one of many ways companies are trying to attract workers amid a nationwide labor shortage. Some employees who were offered jobs after one phone call wondered if it was a red flag or a scam. Up against a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. This strategy is being seen mainly for seasonal jobs at retail companies such as Macy's and Bath & Body...

  • PELOSI FOR SPEAKER-With GOP Votes

    11/17/2018 1:48:36 PM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 23 replies
    The black congresswoman as alternative? Like Abrams in Ga. blacks are their most loyal supporters so they must give them a higher profile. Just look at Booker/Kamala. No need for us to help. Gillum got a lot of them to vote in Fla. Otherwise it would have been easier. I say 10 Republicans in congress should vote for her-non news. The more-of-the-same element. No need for anything 'refreshing'. Then there's the radical element. Would black leadership that's more radical take them over the cliff in 2020? You tell me.

    Summary--we are letting in one to two million legal and illegal immigrants per year. 2/3 of them that vote, will vote democrat (so will their children when they grow up). Soon (ten years or less) the democrats will have a virtual monopoly on power in every federal institution. Details Illegal and legal immigration last year amounted to 1.75 million people. the year before that it was a 1.5 million people. The native population is not growing. All our population growth is from Illegal and legal immigrants and their children. 2/3 of immigrants vote democrat so we are taking in millions...
