Why Right-Wing Pundits Assail
the Righteous Anger of Patriots
American Thinker, by Deborah C. Tyler    Original Article

Throughout his writings, Reverend Martin Luther King explained that white moderates who claimed friendship to the negro cause but rejected social disorder and cautioned patience and calm were more of a stumbling block to freedom than the frank racists of the KKK. That stumbling block to change seems to be recreated in the psychology of many prominent conservatives writing about the current presidential election. The permeating subtext across the writing of elite conservatives ranges from concern to contempt to fear of the righteous anger of patriotic Americans. Anger is the fuel of political freedom. The misconstruction of right-wing anger by conservative

In the United States of 2016 the occupant of the White House is someone steeped in and aggressively implementing statist ideology. And one of the two major political parties has as its only candidates for the presidency a dedicated lifelong socialist in Bernie Sanders and a newly declared socialist in Hillary Clinton. In recent polls nearly 59% of Democrats say they would vote for a socialist candidate as well as nearly 50% of independents and even more frightening nearly 70% of those between the ages of 18 and 29 in the country claim they would vote for a socialist. This phenomenon

What Rubio and Cruz

Sheesh, cousins, you had me worried there. The prospect of Donald Trump leading Ronald Reagan´s party was almost too dreadful for words. Quite apart from the implications for that party´s credibility, it would have made me look like a complete idiot. For 15 years, I have been campaigning for the introduction of U.S.-style primaries in Britain. Just as I was starting to get somewhere, opponents began to come back with a devastating three-word putdown: "Yeah. Right. Trump." Well, thanks Iowa. And thanks, in particular, to Nebraska Sen.

According to the United States Geological Survey, nearly half the land in the Western United States is owned by the federal government. This includes 84.9 percent of land in Nevada (hiding UFOs requires lots of space), 64.9 percent of Utah, 61.6 percent of Idaho, 61.2 percent of Alaska, 52.9 percent of Oregon, 48.1 percent of Wyoming, and 45.8 percent in California. Meanwhile, the federal government owns only about 5 percent of the land in states east of the Mississippi River. Altogether, Uncle Sam owns roughly 640 million acres of land. In March 2012, Utah Gov.

Why Liberals Should Support
a Trump Republican Nomination
New York Magazine, by Jonathan Chait    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 2/8/2016 4:57:32 AM     Post Reply
The initial stupefaction and dismay with which liberals greeted Donald Trump’s candidacy have slowly given way to feelings of Schadenfreude— reveling in the suffering of others, in this case the apoplectic members of the Republican Establishment. Are such feelings morally wrong? Or can liberals enjoy the spectacle unleavened by guilt? As Republican voters start actually voting, is it okay to be sad — alarmed, even — by the prospect that the Trump hostile takeover of the GOP may fail? There are three reasons, in descending order of obviousness, for a liberal to earnestly and patriotically support a Trump Republican nomination. The

Inside a modest home in Ontario, California, the sun is setting on what seems to be—at first glance—a typical picture of domesticity. A woman sweeps up the floor while a dog nips at her heels. Her daughter sits at the kitchen table, mulling word problems. Somewhere, a man is away driving his 18-wheeler, on the road between California and Idaho. A scene of this nature is unremarkable for many truck driving families, who have grown accustomed to being apart for weeks or months on end. This story, though, is markedly different. Up until six weeks ago, Jennifer, the woman in the scene, was

Can Obama let go of his wished-for legacy?

“The tide of war is receding,” Barack Obama tirelessly insisted four years ago as he campaigned for reelection. Even then, the slogan seemed untethered from reality. Not only was fighting in Afghanistan intensifying, with no end in sight, but Syria, Iraq and Libya were all sliding toward civil war. That Obama stayed with the phrase reflected not just his electoral strategy but an enduring feature of his foreign policy. Having arrived in office with a handful of ideologically driven goals, the president has stubbornly stuck to them regardless of contradictory facts on the ground. “Ending the wars” in Iraq and Afghanistan



The disappearing governors

The Iowa caucuses may have only muddied the waters in the presidential race, but they almost definitively decided one thing: the next president will not be a governor. That’s an amazing revelation because just one year ago all the smart money was betting that the next president would be a Republican governor. And why not? The governors were supposed to be the GOP’s talent pool. If the nominee wasn’t going to be Jeb Bush, the former two term Florida CEO with a sterling job performance, voters would surely look to Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, the conservative warrior for financial sanity and labor reform,

Willie Sutton, the famous bank robber of a bygone age, and Hillary Clinton are two of a kind. Someone, probably a psychology major working on a term paper, once asked Willie why he robbed banks. He answered simply, “because that’s where the money is.” Last week a CNN interlocutor at a town hall in New Hampshire asked Hillary why she took $675,000 for three speeches to the powerful Wall Street investment house Goldman Sachs. She gave the interlocutor the kind of look that Willie Sutton gave his questioner, and replied: “Well, I dunno, that’s what they offered. You know, every secretary

Obamacare, Cruz, and the Trump Crack-Up
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

Most of us who have followed the GOP nomination contest expected Donald Trump to show his posterior pursuant to his loss to Senator Ted Cruz in the Iowa caucuses, but it’s unlikely that many expected him to crack up after only one defeat. Nonetheless, that seems to be what’s happening. Even when he reverted to his trademark antics only one day after an uncharacteristically rational concession speech, few students of the Donald’s weird campaign could have been surprised. It’s difficult, however, to escape the conclusion that Trump is losing it when he claims that Cruz foisted Obamacare upon the nation. The

In their first live interview together President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had one major complaint about their tenure in the White House: The WiFi is terrible. While speaking to CBS´s Gayle King on Sunday, the Obamas also discussed their Super Bowl plans and life post-presidency. King asked the couple if they had any advice for the incoming first family, asking if ´the water pressure good? Is there WiFi? Does the toilet run in the Lincoln bedroom?´ ´You know that whole tech thing, we´ve been trying to get that straight for the next group of folks,´ Obama answered.



Obama’s Lofty Plans on Gun
Violence Amount to Little Action
New York Times, by Eric Lightblau & Michael D. Shear    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The centerpiece of a plan for stemming gun violence that President Obama announced last month largely amounts to this: an updated web page and 10,000 pamphlets that federal agents will give out at gun shows. In a tearful display of anger and sadness in the East Room of the White House, Mr. Obama ordered steps intended to limit gun violence and vowed to clamp down on what he called widespread evasion of a federal law requiring gun dealers to obtain licenses. But few concrete actions have been put in motion by law enforcement agencies to aggressively carry out the gun

Tricky Dick is back. Sure, the ghost of President Richard Nixon has been with us in some ways all along — we label every scandal with -gate, the mere hint of presidential secrecy earns the “Nixonian” badge — but now he’s everywhere. Here’s the twist: This time, the comparisons — to President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz — are making Nixon look good. Nixon’s typically thought to have set some kind of gold standard of presidential perfidy. The truth is, Obama and Clinton make Nixon look like a Boy Scout. Start with the targeting of conservative and pro-Israel tax-exempt groups by the

In few cases in its long history has the Supreme Court had occasion to interpret Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, which provides that the president “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed." This year it may have another. We´ll know by the end of the Court´s term in June, just as the presidential race is heating up. United States v. Texas is the case to watch.

Yesterday, in New Hampshire, Madeline K. Albright told a rally—with Hillary standing there, laughing—there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help women. I say there’s a special place in hell for voters in a free country who insist on being stupid. For months, certain pundits have hooted over RNC nightmares of Trump or Cruz as the party standard bearer. Imagine, on the other hand, the terror amongst DNC insiders should Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton led them over a cliff. For a party that produced the likes of FDR, Truman, and JFK, this is, indeed, a dark moment, as

A Texas newspaper announced its plans Saturday to publish the names and addresses of every San Antonio police officer following a deadly officer-involved shooting last week. Stephanie Zarriello, publisher of the weekly tabloid San Antonio Observer, said Antronie Scott had been “unjustly murdered,” Fox San Antonio reported. She described Scott as being in “a position of surrender” when he was shot and killed on Feb. 4 by Officer John Lee, a 10-year veteran of the police force.

At an event in Milford, New Hampshire, Bill Clinton hardened his rhetoric against Bernie Sanders on several fronts, including an accusation of sexism leveled at supporters of Bernie Sanders for their attacks on Hillary Clinton. The Nation´s Joan Walsh, Bill Clinton said, has been using a pseudonym online to defend Hillary Clinton because "she and other people who have gone online to defend Hillary, to explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often -- not to mention sexist -- to repeat." Bill Clinton was referring to the "Berniebros" -- mobs of

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- With his prolific passing and complete control of the game at the line of scrimmage, Peyton Manning helped usher in the NFL´s wide-open era of high-scoring offenses and pass-happy game plans. Manning´s possible farewell game in Super Bowl 50 was a throwback to the 1970s when his father Archie was running away from dominant defenses such as the Steel Curtain and Doomsday. Von Miller forced fumbles that set up both of Denver´s touchdowns, led a defense that harassed MVP Cam Newton and helped carry Manning to his second Super Bowl title with a 24-10 victory over

CONCORD, N.H. — Marco Rubio’s robotic debate performance Saturday night sparked an all-out offensive on the campaign trail here Sunday over his authenticity and experience, momentarily halting the momentum of the senator from Florida and further muddling the presidential nomination battle. Just two days before the New Hampshire primary, Rubio drew mockery for repeating a rehearsed line four times during the Republican candidates’ debate, even after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had ridiculed him for being a talking-point machine. Rubio received scathing reviews on the Sunday talk shows and was needled by some of his opponents. On Twitter, he earned the moniker

The only high-rise building to have collapsed in the Taiwanese city of Tainan following a major earthquake on Saturday seems to have had serious constructions flaws. The collapse has exposed cooking-oil cans embedded inside the building’s concrete walls. Witnesses at the scene have told Reuters that they saw large rectangular, commercial cans of cooking-oil packed inside the wall cavities of the 17-story Wei Guan Golden Dragon Building, apparently having been used as building material. A BBC correspondent reported from the scene that the collapse has exposed blue-and-white cooking oil cans that “appear to have been used as filler inside some

MANCHESTER, N.H. – An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary. The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place. The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate.

MANCHESTER, N.H. Hillary Clinton, who faces mounting pressure to release transcripts of her paid speeches, routinely demanded that a stenographer be present at her events so she could maintain a record of what she said. At least four of Clinton’s contracts include a clause stating a transcript would be produced for Clinton and that the former secretary of state would own them and control their release, according to contracts obtained by McClatchy. “The sponsor will transcribe Speaker’s remarks as they are being delivered, which should be solely for the Speaker’s records,” according to her contract with the University of Buffalo, which paid her

Jay-Z’s streaming music service Tidal will donate $1.5 million raised at a charity concert last year to Black Lives Matter and other social justice organizations.

Among the organizations that will receive donations are Hands Up United, the Opportunity Agenda, the Baltimore Justice Fund, New York’s Million Hoodies and NY Justice League, and Illinois’
