Sadly, someone I care deeply about was recently diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer — one that is difficult to survive. The problem with this cancer is that it is rarely found until it reaches what oncologists call Stage III or Stage IV, meaning that treatment options are limited and the prognosis is guarded at best — with even “guarded” representing sometimes unjustifiable optimism. (Snip)The rise of Barack Obama to the presidency of the United States suggested a slightly sick country: A completely unaccomplished man elected to the highest political office on the planet on promises of “hope and change”

Trashing the republic to save his
party with immigration ‘reform’

Forget the smarmy political desperation of it. Forget the Third World despotic nature of it. Forget even the cynical, Machiavellian deceitfulness of it. Let’s just consider how President Obama threatens to slash to ribbons the very fabric of the world’s greatest free republic by unilaterally thwarting Congress to grant amnesty to untold numbers of illegal aliens who illegally crossed our borders and are presently residing here now. Illegally. Will it be a million? Four million? Will Fuehrer Obama grant amnesty to 7 million illegals?

The Republican nomination for the presidency in 2016 may be Scott Walker’s to lose. If your response, as it might be, is “Scott Who?” then you’re not paying attention yet.I just spent a week among people who are: 550 conservative and Republican voters who traveled on National Review magazine’s semi-annual cruise. The cruisers are consumed with politics. And overwhelmingly — and I mean no one else was even close — their favorite for 2016 is the governor of Wisconsin. These NR readers don’t precisely match the GOP electorate, but they’re a pretty significant leading indicator. They are, to a person, conservative, and

Priorities – Mike Brown Body Lays In
Unmarked Grave As Parents Jet Set

Perhaps Mike Brown’s mom, Lesley McSpadden, is too busy coordinating the next T-Shirt promotion. Or perhaps Mike Brown Senior is too busy scheduling the next private jet trip to Europe while meeting with celebrities to grift more money from his death. Regardless of reasoning, Mike Brown’s body remains in unmarked grave three months after his death. A CNN writer visited the cemetery and takes note: [...] I follow the footprints to a small bouquet of plastic flowers, red and purple, planted in the ground. There is not yet a headstone at Brown’s grave. I stand where Brown’s parents wailed as

On Tuesday, the 15th woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault came forward. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, former supermodel Janice Dickinson said that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982. She recounted a dinner they had in Lake Tahoe, where she said Cosby gave her a "pill, which she asked for because she was menstruating and had stomach pains." "Before I woke up in the morning," she told ET, "the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain." This follows on an

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is reportedly moving ahead with his potential presidential campaign, meeting with potential donors and lining up support on Wall Street. According to a Daily News report published Wednesday night, Bush visited an unnamed downtown Manhattan bank earlier in the week to secure financial backing for a potential White House bid. It wasn´t his first such trip, either. "He´s been having these secret visits with guys who can write six and seven-figure checks," a finance industry official told the paper.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, who came to prominence as an imposing figure in a track suit, shouting indignantly at the powerful, stood quietly on a stage last month at the Four Seasons restaurant, his now slender frame wrapped in a finely tailored suit, as men in power lined up to exclaim their admiration for him. Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo hailed him as a civil rights icon. President Obama sent an aide to read a message commending Mr. Sharpton’s “dedication to the righteous cause of perfecting our union.” Major corporations sponsored the lavish affair. It was billed as

Tell a woman to keep her legs closed, and you get a Slut Walk marching through your town. Tell a man to keep his legs closed, and you´re now a feminist hero in New York. Yesterday, TIME Magazine published an article bemoaning some men´s tendency to sit in subway cars with their legs spread out. "It´s like they have an imaginary sumo wrestlers sitting on the floor in front of them," Brian Moylan complains. "The problem with leg spreaders is that they are breaking the social contract that we need to abide by to survive in New York City." When a liberal

Demonstrations are planned in dozens of cities across the U.S. as a Missouri grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager. New York civil-rights activist Al Sharpton said his organization will hold vigils at federal courthouses in 25 U.S. cities. Internet sites are listing details of other gatherings to occur when there’s an announcement about whether Darren Wilson faces charges in the Aug. 9 killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson. The grand jury may reach a decision Nov. 21 and it may be disclosed two days later, CNN reported, citing law-enforcement

The Internal Revenue Service, which claims to be so understaffed that it can’t bother to collect unpaid taxes or search backup tapes for Lois Lerner’s “missing” e-mails, apparently has plenty of time to read the comment threads on conservative blogs that have been critical of the agency (Hi there, IRS agents!). William Jacobson, one of the best-informed and most effective critics of the agency, writes on Legal Insurrection: Hey, remember the Reader Poll we did about whether it was okay to follow and try to interview Lois Lerner in her neighborhood? (snip) Someone noticed the comments to the blog post.

Appropriations panel: Defunding

It would be “impossible" to defund President Obama’s executive actions on immigration through a government spending bill, the House Appropriations Committee said Thursday. In a statement released by House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers´s (R-Ky.) office hours before Obama´s scheduled national address, the committee said the primary agency responsible for implementing Obama´s actions is funded entirely by user fees. As a result, the committee said the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) agency would be able to continue to collect fees and carry out its operations even if the government shut down. “This agency is entirely self-funded through the fees it collects on

President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration hasn’t even been issued yet, and already congressional Republicans are desperately trying to come up with reasons why they’re powerless to do anything about it.Here’s what the House Appropriations Committee spokesman told The Hill earlier today:It would be “impossible to defund President Obama’s executive order through a government spending bill, House Appropriations Committee spokeswoman Jennifer Hing said Thursday.Congress doesn’t provide funding to U.S. Citizenship and Immgiration Services (CIS), the agency responsible for issuing work permits and green cards. Instead, the agency is funded through fees.“We cannot, literally cannot, defund that agency in an
