    Recently, non-government organization Truth in Accounting published a reportabout the financial condition of the 75 largest cities of America. As it turns out, 63 out of 75 cities in America were not able to pay bills at the end of the fiscal year of 2017. The final result of this study was the calculation of the burden borne by taxpayers in these American cities. The formula is simple: the financial balance of the city (positive or negative) is divided by the number of inhabitants. The result is a good assessment of how effectively the city authorities work, depending on the...

    The unlikely presidential run of Andrew Yang, who is proposing a $1,000-a-month “freedom dividend” to every adult in America, rolled Friday into San Francisco, where some 3,000 supporters listened to the New York tech entrepreneur warn about how artificial intelligence and robotics are taking jobs. The 44-year-old son of Taiwanese immigrants who met each other at UC Berkeley has already surpassed expectations — virtually nonexistent when he got into the race — by inspiring enough donations to qualify for the Democratic primary debate in June.

    Red Alert Politics/Washington Examiner ^ | March 15th, 2019 | John Patrick
    Charlotte Riley, who teaches history at the University of Southampton, penned an interesting op-ed in the New Statesmen last month where she literally suggested standing in the way of busy males on their morning commute to help resist perceived patriarchy in society. According to Riley, such tactics are necessary because males have naturally been raised to believe they have a “right to occupy space.” “The point is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to...

Speaker Pelosi told KPIX 5 she’s going call for an override vote on March 26, even if they don’t have the supermajority needed to overturn the veto.

    "I want to thank Minister Farrakhan for offering up a number of precepts that we ought to adhere to,” Rep. James Clyburn said, at an event featuring the anti-Semitic hate group leader. Eight years later, to the month, Clyburn, now the House Majority Whip, defended Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitism. “There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her," he argued, dismissing the concerns of Jewish legislators. Rep. Clyburn is one of the most powerful figures in the House. He’s also one of Farrakhan’s allies in the House who had...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) voiced her support on Thursday for lowering the federal voting age to 16, telling reporters during a press conference that doing so would be a boon to voter engagement in the U.S. Pelosi said Thursday that lowering the voting age would drive interest in politics among younger Americans who are learning about the subject in high school. The Speaker said that changing the voting age to 16 would help drive a higher level of voter awareness and turnout. "I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16," Pelosi said. "I think it's...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t name a single congressional accomplishment for former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) during her weekly press conference on Thursday. A reporter asked Pelosi what she believed O’Rourke’s signature accomplishment was when he served as a member of the House. “Beto brought a bit of vitality to Congress,” Pelosi said. “When he came, he came as a real champion of the environment, he got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district. He won in a primary on that subject.” “Also he’s a member of the Armed Service Committee, a strong member of...

    IN THESE TIMES (Warning -Extremely radical socialist) ^ | 3/14/19 | Rashida Baconlover Tlaib
    Now is the time for impeachment. People in D.C. ask: What would it mean for our 2020 strategy? But I ask what it means for the people I grew up with, the residents of my district, and what it means for all of us, as Americans, to have Donald Trump remain our president. Trump’s years in office are years we cannot get back. But more dangerous than the loss of time is allowing Trump’s precedents to take root. In 2017, Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, an Arizona sheriff who was ordered by a federal court to stop racially profiling and was...

    Peddlers of the Green New Deal know that the only way for their radical agenda to become reality is if Americans buy into the wildest claims of climate extremists. It’s clear that some of the most enthusiastic supporters of this radical agenda are young people. This was on full display in the now viral video of a meeting between Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and a group of children from the Sunrise Movement.

    Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Twitter bio declares her the “Unbossed Congresswoman” for Michigan’s 13th District. While the moniker has roots in Shirley Chisholm’s successful campaign to become the first black congresswoman, nowadays it also could be seen as a blunt message to Democratic leadership: Nobody is bossing around the class of 2019. And that’s a problem for party bosses. On everything from the Green New Deal to impeachment to criticism of Israel, a squad of first-year congresswomen are flexing their muscle and posing an implicit challenge to Democratic honchos like Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Their stridently liberal agenda – and power...

    You might think there isn’t any news here: “I’m not for impeachment.”But you aren’t allowed to reach that conclusion on your own, leave that determination to your betters. “This is news,” she added. “I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this, impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it.”  MCN The important point here is not that Pelosi is calling...

    “It’s not rape in Islam”: ISIS Muslima says jihadis’ rape of non-Muslim women is “allowed in the Quran” The Daily Mail, the worst paper in the Western world, undertakes here to defend Islam and the Qur’an from charges that they condone the sexual enslavement of Infidel women, citing Qur’an 24:33, “Force not your slave-girls to whoredom.” However, this refers to forcing slave girls to become prostitutes. The Qur’an is quite clear that slave girls, “the captives of the right hand,” can be used sexually: “Prohibited to you are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father’s sisters, your mother’s sisters,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/11/19 | Daniel Chaitin
    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., rushed to the defense of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday, saying only "graphic evidence" would warrant an impeachment gamble against President Trump. "In the absence of very graphic evidence, it would be difficult to get the support in the Senate needed to make an impeachment successful. Again, my feeling is let's see what Bob Mueller produces. But the evidence would have to be pretty overwhelming," Schiff told CNN. Across the caucus, Democrats have been asked to comment about Pelosi, D-Calif., abruptly shutting the door on impeachment in an interview published Monday.

    Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., told Fox News on Monday that it was "silly" to compare President Trump with former President Barack Obama, adding: "One is human. The other is really not." Omar's comments came after she told Politico in an interview published last Friday that the Obama administration was responsible for the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world."

    Sarah Sanders sparred with CNN’s Jim Acosta during the first White House press briefing in 42 days on Monday. The exchange was prompted after NBC’s Hallie Jackson initially asked Sanders if Trump truly believes that “Democrats hate Jews,” following Trump's declaration last week that Democrats are "anti-Israel" and "anti-Jewish." The White House press secretary declined to answer directly, noting that the president has laid out his position on the matter in the past. “Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that,” Sanders said, referring to the ongoing controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan...

    U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just got a humbling lesson in the power of anti-Semitism: It can’t be bribed away with a plum subcommittee appointment or threatened out with a primary challenge. Watching the utter disaster that unfolded when congressional leaders suggested making a simple, full-throated condemnation of anti-Semitism, I tried to think of something less surprising. I couldn’t. This began bad for the Jews; it ended bad for the Jews; and in the middle was a whole heaping pile of bad for the Jews. Last week, after freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., had made the latest in a series...
  • The BIG LIST Of Ideas That Is Trump’s Reelection Path

    If President Trump hibernated for the next 20 months he’d likely win reelection in a landslide. Of course it is not in his nature to do anything remotely like that, but that is how radical the Democratic Party has become in really just the past year. Yes, it has been trending this direction for a long time. But Bill Clinton was nominated and elected in 1992 based on his promise to take the Democratic Party back to the center. Since that time, however, it has moved much further to the left. In the past year, however, it has jumped to...

    ...In 2010, Lt. Col. (retired) Oliver North visited the ranch where Ashurst lives. He was working on documentaries called “War Stories.” He was accompanied by Chuck Holton, a freelance war correspondent and former U.S. Army Ranger who has worked with North on his films and books. When the caravans of illegal immigrants began forming last year in southern Mexico, Holton was sent there to report on them. Ashurst shared some of the information he received from Holton. The migrants are not being paid to join the caravans, but they are being supported and encouraged to join by opposition political elements...

    Once, the cannabis industry was poised to become a multibillion-dollar industry in California. Now, it could be heading for what its advocates call an “extinction event.” An estimated 10,000 marijuana growers could lose their licenses in the coming months if California lawmakers fail to pass a bill designed to grant them an extension, according to Sen. Mike McGuire, D-Healdsburg, who has sponsored Senate Bill 67.
