Free Speech or Not?
(12/31/2016) Nearing exit, Obama seeks to tie Trump's hands. Massive regulations, stabbing Israel in the back, last minute confrontation with Russia. What is next?
(12/30/2016) Leftists Team Up to Paint Trump Education Pick Betsy DeVos as Religious Extremist. According to the Left, the typical evangelical is an extremist.
(12/29/2016) SURPRISE! Obama Is Leaving America MORE DIVIDED Than George W. Bush. This is based on what might be called political division. But we are more divided in other ways as well. Would anyone argue that race relations are better now than eight years ago?
(12/28/2016) NBC’s Jansing: Unlike Trump, Obama Decision Making ‘Very Professorial, Thoughtful, In-Depth.’ If the very professorial Obama is so thoughtful and in-depth, how did he get so many things so wrong? Good question. It leads to another interesting question. Is the MSM racist because they refuse to apply the same standards to a black president that they would to a white one? Or are they merely not applying the same standards to a progressive president that they would to a conservative one? A little (lot) bit of both, perhaps?
(12/28/2016) White House Avoids Following Another Law - Lawmakers Demand Answers. Yet the Obama administration and many in the MSM have been assuring us that this is the most scandal-free and transparent administration in history.
(12/24/2016) Soros-Funded Group Does Hit Piece on Ben Carson. Not that there is anything surprising about this.
(12/22/2016) Trump's Victory Is a Pivotal Turning Point in Human History. We shall have to wait and see, but one can always hope.
(12/20/2016) The Animal Cunning and Instinct of Donald Trump. This is a Victor Davis Hanson column and is definitely worth reading. Shall we just say that the old paradigm for political expertise has been shown to be wanting.
(12/20/2016) Obama Agonistes. I would like to look at Obama as a tragic figure, but I can't. Tragic figures, at least in the Shakespearean sense, tend to be great men who are undone by a tragic flaw. For the life of me, I see no greatness in any form in Obama. Flaws, yes. Greatness, no.
(12/19/2016) This Is Insane. Pennsylvania Electors Getting Police Protection For Monday’s Vote. Yet the MSM still thinks this is no big deal. Well, today Trump will become official, so the next step on the part of the Left will be to work on impeachment. More here. And then there is this: GOP Elector Says He Was Threatened, Followed on the Freeway by People with Cameras.
(12/19/2016) Reports: Electoral College voters getting threats, losing business. The MSM apparently thinks this is no big deal.
(12/19/2016) The Birth of a Narrative - 'Fake news' didn't become a problem until Nov. 11. And it still would not be a problem had Hillary won.
(12/19/2016) Black Father-Daughter Trump Electors Receive Death Threats, Called Bigots for Supporting Trump. No one ever said that the progressive narrative actually had to make sense.
(12/16/2016) 65 Million Hillary Voters Urged to Refuse Paying Taxes. 'We look forward to Trump's tweet response to this seemingly treasonous sore-losership.' Somehow, I doubt many will follow this recommendation.
(12/15/2016) School’s ‘Social Justice League’ goes bonkers over MAGA post. Most of our colleges, their students, faculty and administrators, are an embarrassment.
(12/15/2016) Anchorwoman Fired for Pro-Trump Post Goes Nuclear on Station. While there are definitely bias and double standards in the media, and nothing would surprise me, there is probably more to this story than what is covered in the article.
(12/14/2016) Massive voter fraud allegedly discovered in Nevada. This is a couple weeks old, and nothing is going to come of it. But it is yet more evidence that we need to clean up our voting and that begins with cleaning up our voter registration rolls.
(12/13/2016) What Voter Fraud? Michigan Recount Uncovers Too Many Votes in 37% of Detroit Precincts. Our problem is not our ability to count votes, but the fact that we have fraudulent votes, whether by unregistered or non-citizen voters, by running ballots through machines multiple times, or whatnot. All voting should be done via paper ballots so proper recounts can be done. Voter ID, no same day and motor voter registration should also be the norm. Trump should use the Left's "concern" about the integrity of our elections to implement these common-sense reforms.
(12/12/2016) Remember When the Russians Hacked the White House's Computers? Most people don't because this came out right before the 2014 elections and it made the Democrats look bad; the MSM ignored it.
(12/12/2016) Yes, the Democrats actually are trying to overturn the election. As an ex-liberal, I can state with some certainty that liberals are generally happy to get their way - by any means and in any manner. Rules, laws, public opinion, votes: these are all just obstacles to be gotten around, if possible.
(12/08/2016) Assessing the Obama Legacy -- Against his own Mileposts. This is a Victor Davis Hanson column and VDH columns are always great!
(12/08/2016) Liberal Heads Explode as Trump Plans to Nominate EPA Critic Scott Pruitt to Head the EPA. For those of us who think the EPA is totally unnecessary and does more harm than good, this is great news.
(12/08/2016) Liberal environmentalist compares Trump to Hitler, complains about “toxic rhetoric.” The sub-headline for this article is priceless: Another liberal lacking self-awareness sacrificed on Tucker Carlson’s altar.
(12/08/2016) Dem Rep: Ending Obamacare’s Individual Mandate Would be Un-American. I think that many on the Left have truly forgotten what it really means to be an American. They have re-defined "American" to mean "in favor of the progressive agenda." It appears that the country is not entirely on board with this.
(12/06/2016) The Return of Assassination Fascination. I thought the Left was promoting "Love Trumps Hate." I guess not.
(12/05/2016) Carson for HUD. Here is some background.
(12/03/2016) 5 Reasons Barack Obama Will Be Viewed As One Of The Worst Presidents of All Time. All time? Possibly.
(12/02/2016) 'Panic in Progressive Park' -- What If Trump Is Actually Good? Under Obama we have been hearing such things as 'running the country is too big a job for one man' and 'the days of 3% economic growth are gone forever.' This sort of talk only is permitted for a Democrat president. Bush, after all, was responsible for everything. Today, many progressives are very, very afraid. What if Trump succeeds? What if America returns to robust growth? Progressives will not look very good, will they? So every effort must be made to prevent Trump from succeeding.
(12/02/2016) “We don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party.” Yet the media focuses on the narrative that the only reason that Trump won because of "white supremacists." Where exactly did all these "white supremacists" come from? For the handful that do exist, they probably are a direct result of Democrat identity politics. More of what this article represents is not likely to improve matters.
(11/28/2016) Vote Fraud Group Supports Trump’s Claim on Illegal Voters. How many illegal votes were cast? Who knows? But there is plenty of evidence - both pre- and post-election - that indicates that the number is significant. The press refuses to cover stories about fraud and then uses their lack of coverage to claim that it is not a big problem. Here is hoping that the Trump administration addresses the problem.
(11/26/2016) Clinton Campaign Lawyer: Hillary Will Join Stein in Recount Efforts to Overthrow Trump. Hardly surprising. Richard Nixon, who really did have the 1960 election stolen from him by dead voters in Chicago, had the decency not to challenge "for the good of the country." Hillary should have done the same, but did anyone seriously expect her to?
(11/26/2016) Compare and Contrast: Donald Trump vs Obama on Tyrant Fidel Castro’s Death. Castro was a brutal dictator and there is no reason to avoid saying so.
(11/25/2016) California Should Try to Secede. This is a very interesting column. It is more about the importance of our individual states than California secession - something that the author is not in favor of.
(11/25/2016) Teachers Union Leaders Devastated that So Many Members Voted Trump. I guess they thought plowing so many union resources into the Hillary campaign should have been more effective.
(11/25/2016) Lib Hack Amanpour Compares Trump to Erdogan and Ayatollahs – Calls on Media to Destroy Him. Well, based on the evidence here, she really is a lib hack. How can she even pretend to be a journalist?
(11/25/2016) Trump's Appointments Continue to Impress. Some of the commenters do not, however. For example, a cabinet secretary does not have the power to shut down their department. And Ben Carson as HUD would be in a wonderful position to start to change the inner-city culture. Surgeon General, which really has not power at all, would be patronizing in the extreme.
(11/21/2016) Dear liberals: Start practicing the empathy you preach. Good article, except that writer says liberals think people that voted for Trump are stupid. That is what conservatives think liberals are. Clinton voters think Trump voters are evil and deplorable.
(11/20/2016) Election Over, Associated Press Still Campaigns fot the Left. The bias in this "news" article is extreme. And folks like the AP actually want to determine for us rubes what news is "real" and what is "fake." Read the article. The bias in the AP story is probably even worse than you can imagine.
(11/20/2016) Trump Transition Team Releases Readout of Saturday’s Meetings With Industry, Defense, Education Leaders. Already the Trump "administration" is being more transparent than President Obama's has ever been.
(11/20/2016) Why ‘moral outrage’ over the Electoral College outrages me. The point is that the presidential campaign was run under the actual rules: whoever wins the most electoral votes wins the election. It the rule were different, then the campaigns would have been different as well. We simply don't know who would have won. Playing by the given rules and winning is fair. But read the article.
(11/19/2016) Are All Liberals Rude and Arrogant? You may have heard about VP-elect Pence's reception at the Broadway play Hamilton. This is the fairest presentation of it that I have seen. Here is more: Vice President-elect Pence Booed By Audience, Lectured To By Cast of Hamilton.
(11/18/2016) San Francisco Teachers Union Creates Anti-Trump Lesson Plan. I am definitely reaching the point where I am in favor of 1) Banning public sector unions, and 2) replacing "public education" with a voucher system. Actually, I've been in favor of both of these for years, but this is just all the more reason to do so. Here is more: San Francisco Teachers’ Union Provides Anti-Trump Curriculum: ‘Do Not Tell Them That We Have Lost’
(11/16/2016) Freakout at the UC System. Many colleges and corporations are upset over the election results and have hastened to assure their people that their commitment to "diversity" is still strong. Yet none of these places support the only diversity that really matters - diversity of opinion. And their recent spate of letters and tweets only reinforces this fact.
(11/16/2016) Speaking of "freakouts." the media is going bonkers over Trump's selection of Steve Bannon for a top WH position, alleging anti-Semitism and racism on his part. Yet they are strangely silent about the likely selection of Keith Ellison to head the DNC. Ellison is a former member of the Nation of Islam, and fact that the media has studiously ignored since he decided to run for Congress. For more: The Ellison Angle.
(11/16/2016) Pro-Trump Violence Claims "Fabricated," - while riots protesting president-elect expected to continue. Maybe I am not looking hard enough, but I have yet to see a Democrat politician condemning the riots and violence perpetrated by the anti-Trump "protesters." And I have yet to see in instance of pro-Trump violence that has been confirmed.
(11/16/2016) A Blow to the Non-Elite Elite. This is a Victor Davis Hanson column. All his columns are worth reading.
(11/15/2016) Did Trump Make a “Secret Deal NOT To Prosecute Hillary” In Exchange for Her Concession? It used to be that this kind of thing was unimaginable. It is still unbelievable, but no longer unimaginable.
(11/14/2016) IRS denies tea party groups after long wait for decision on tax-exempt status. Expect a lot of things to happen beofre Trump is sworn in - things that conservatives will not care for. Fortunately, many / most can be undone, including this. Update: I was right in my prediction - EPA Speeds Up Rule-making Process Ahead of Trump. I should point out that "rules" that have been made can also be unmade. There is a process, of course, but if the rules were made in violation of that process, they can simply be revoked.
(11/14/2016) Liberals Call for End to Democracy After Trump Win. To be fair, it is only "some" and the probably qualify more as Leftists rather than Liberals. According to post-election surveys, the vast majority of Americans accept the election results.
(11/12/2016) 7 Things Liberals Should Learn From This Election But Won't. While I believe that conservatives sometimes need to learn some things but won't, I believe that liberals are far more prone to this malady. Perhaps it is their commitment to the progressive narrative, a narrative that is push by most of the people they have contact with: the media, academics, entertainers, etc.
(11/11/2016) Rev. Graham: God Intervened Nov. 8 to Stop 'Atheistic, Progressive Agenda' in America. I prayed for it, along with many others. But we will just have to wait and see - and keep praying. Trump is not the Savior, Jesus is. And America still needs revival - to turn back to God in a major way. So all you prayer warriors, the job isn't done. We need to keep on praying - for our nation, for our new president to be, for all our leaders and for both our political allies and out political enemies.
(11/11/2016) If you are the type that likes to dig into election details, here are a couple of interesting articles. Don't be concerned over the sources. From the Washington Post: How Donald Trump did it, in 5 images. From the NY Times: Election 2016: Exit Polls.
(11/08/2016) A Final Plea to Never-Trumpers. Dennis Prager makes the case.
(11/08/2016) Lloyd Marcus's final thoughts: Election Day 2016. You definitely want to keep this all in mind, no matter the outcome of the election.
(11/06/2016) Elementary School Cancels Mock Election After Kids Chant ‘Trump.’ I would venture to say that the kids were given a very poor lesson in civics and democracy by this action. Perhaps I should say "good" civics and democracy, since it is perhaps a very good lesson concerning the attitudes of our academics, media and others concerning civics and democracy.
(11/05/2016) Clinton Judge Orders Restraining Order Against Trump ‘Poll Watchers’ in Ohio. Other than their existence, I don't see that there is any evidence that these folks were "intimidating" voters. I've heard many claims of voter intimidation, yet the only one that has held up to scrutiny is the Black Panthers in Philly.
(11/04/2016) Potentially the Worst VP in American History. A look at Tim Kaine's track record and agendas. It seems appropriate given the presidential pick for his party. I haven't really heard much about Kaine this election cycle, other than the fact that he is another one of those "devout Catholics" who is a strong proponent of abortion.
(11/04/2016) Apparently a Lot of People Regret Voting Early for Hillary Clinton. I am a strong opponent of early voting for the very reason that a lot of new information always seems to be revealed towards the end of the election cycle. I also dislike mail-in voting and non-paper voting, since fraud is easier and harder to trace. Mailing out ballots isn't so bad if you still have to bring them in personally and verify that you are the one who signed the ballot. I might extend voting from a single day to perhaps 3 days, but it is critical to restore confidence in our election system, and baby steps are not going to do it.
(11/03/2016) FBI Leaks: Clinton Foundation Probe a 'Very High Priority,' Will Likely Lead to an Indictment. This whole business exposed by WikiLeaks and other leaks is worse than Watergate. In Watergate, the initial crime - burglarizing the Democrat headquarters at the Watergate - was done on the initiative of "low level staffers" (really), and was totally bungled and unsuccessful. The disaster was the cover-up. Here we have crimes and corruption and cover-up right up to the top of our government and including our potential next president. Many of us suspected that Washington was a cesspool of corruption and criminality, but only the most cynical thought it was this bad. Now the evidence just keeps on building. And our media, for the most part, is complicit.
(11/03/2016) Obama DOJ: Handmaiden of Clinton Corruption. And not just Clinton corruption. And just who, exactly, is going to deal with criminality and corruption in the DOJ? I suspect that the DOJ will helpfully clear themselves of all charges and accusations.
(11/02/2016) Top Dem Donor Compares Black Republicans to Nazi Collaborators (and worse). The Democrats, the party of the little guy, hold an awful lot of little guys in utter contempt. That probably includes you, so ....
(10/31/2016) Democrats Don’t Care About The Health Of Democracy, They Care About Hillary. When a Republican politician is accused of something bad, you will find plenty of Republicans who will throw up their hands in horror. The MSM demands that Republicans "disavow" that politician, and plenty will. Not so with the Democrats - and the media. The MSM will make no demands to "disavow" and the Democrats will be in lockstep defending their man or woman, as the case may be.
(10/31/2016) Guess Who Talked About a ‘Rigged Election’ in 2008? On a serious note, voter fraud is a serious issue and would be pretty easy to minimize - voter ID and paper ballots with a paper trail. And please, quit allowing voting as early as a month in advance (except for genuine absentee). Also, get rid of same day registration. - very open to abuse.
(10/30/2016) The Church, The Nation, Donald Trump and the Future of Freedom. Through an interview with Dr. Michael Brown, evangelist James Robison delivers a word for America during her hour of decision. Read before you vote.
(10/30/2016) Dr. Wayne Grudem: 'Why I Must Vote Trump, Not Third-Party.' The "moral" thing to do is to vote for the admittedly immoral candidate who you think will be best for (or least bad for) the United States of America. See comment below on the Obamacare article. Voting in a manner to feel good about yourself may indeed feel good, but unless you see no difference between the candidates and their parties, do the right thing, make your choice and vote.
(10/30/2016) Small-Ball Conservatism or National Greatness? I'm a national greatness guy myself. We still live in the greatest country on God's green earth, but seem to be doing our best to become just another European welfare state. This is a fairly long article, but well worth reading.
(10/30/2016) The Single Issue on Which You Should Cast Your Vote - Obamacare. Actually, depending on the individual, there are many single issues that one could cast their vote based on. Abortion? Supreme Court? Freedom of speech and religion? Second amendment? The list is long. Look long and hard at the candidates, their position on issues, their parties and platforms, and vote for the one you think is best for the future of the United States of America.
(10/29/2016) The 5 Biggest Revelations About Hillary Clinton From WikiLeaks. If you are having a hard time keeping up with the WikiLeaks revelations, or if you know very little because the MSM is failing to do its job, this is a good summary of the highlights.
(10/29/2016) To Those Christians (and others) Who Can’t Vote for Trump or Clinton. Actually, maybe you can. This is excellent food for thought.
(10/27/2016) EPA Spends $10.8 Million for Teacher Training on ‘Environmental Education.’ Lots of taxpayer dollars go to promoting progressive causes (cloaked in feel-good language), little to promoting conservative ones. And it isn't just the direct promotion that is a problem, it is the fact that much of the money is going directly to activists, allowing them to be professional activists. The GOP controls both houses of Congress, yet they allow this to continue year after year. I realize that Obama would veto any bills defunding various progressive organizations, but the fact that the GOP doesn't even try is one reason we have Trump as the nominee.
(10/26/2016) Rigged or User Error? Early voting machines allegedly changing Trump votes to Clinton in … Texas. Officials are going with "user error," but would anyone expect them to say anything else? In the past I would have been quite skeptical of such claims, but sadly, not anymore.
(10/26/2016) Democrat Corruption is Much Worse Than Trump. What we see from WikiLeaks is a huge amount of blatant corruption at the highest levels of government. We have a Democrat administration and we have evidence of corruption and collusion in government, media and elected officials and candidates. That corruption goes deep and a massive housecleaning is in order.
(10/26/2016) Tech blogger finds proof DNC chief's emails weren't 'doctored' despite claims. The Democrats have been hinting that some of the WikiLeaks email content is not "authentic," yet they have yet to cite a single example. It is clear they wish to leave us with the notion that everything reveals is suspect. The facts appear to be that everything is authentic and the Clinton campaign and many in the media are wallowing in a cesspool of corruption - much of the coordination revealed is (supposedly) illegal, though obviously the DOJ will do nothing about it.
(10/25/2016) Remember Who Lied to You About Lowering Your Premiums. More generally, everything that has gone wrong with Obamacare (and that is pretty much everything about Obamacare) was predicted by opponents. And yet here in Colorado, we have on the ballot single-payer - far more extreme than Obamacare. It is down in the polls, but who knows?
(10/25/2016) “She Was In Full Meltdown”: Hillary Unleashed On Donna Brazile For Unapproved Debate Question. Well, we have always known that the media is biased. What we didn't realize was how little of the media is actually "independent." A goodly portion of the media is actively working with the Democrat party, and in so doing are rarely even criticized by their fellow "journalists" for doing so.
(10/24/2016) The Lesser of Two Evils. Remember Solomon and choose wisely.
(10/23/2016) This Is the Percentage of Millennials Who Believe George W. Bush Killed More People Than Stalin. Spoiler: it is 32%. If you want to get an idea of just how terrible a job our schools are doing, read this article. As Mark Twain might say, it isn't just what they don't know, it's what they know that ain't so.
(10/23/2016) If the Election Were about Trump's Gettysburg Policies, He Would Win in a Landslide. Maybe. Sadly, I wasn't able to find out much about Trump's policy proposals from the MSM - they want to misdirect you away from the issues (while complaining that Americans don't care about the issues). But you can find a fair amount about those policy proposals from this article. Update: More details here - 28 Things Donald Trump Promises to do as President.
(10/21/2016) Dangerous Collusion. The lead paragraph: I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but I don't know how reasonable people can fail to recognize the overt collusion of the Obama administration, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Party and the liberal media to shield Hillary Clinton from accountability for her many misdeeds and abundant corruption.
(10/21/2016) Busted (again)! Megyn Kelly is NOT letting Donna Brazile off the hook. The evidence is clear - many in the MSM are working with the Clinton campaign in order to elect Hillary. Most in the media are covering up this fact.
(10/20/2016) A Frightening Preview of Hillary's America. Dark and unaccountable. Well, it certainly seems to have been getting darker recently.
(10/20/2016) Ted Cruz Calls for Investigation of ‘Voter Fraud’ Operative Who Visited White House. The election may not be "rigged" in the sense that the powers that be are ensuring a particular result. But there is plenty of fraud and that fraud heavily favors the Democrats - who strongly resist effort to reduce said fraud. And I have never seen the MSM so totally in the tank for a presidential candidate. They've certainly been biased, historically, but ....
(10/20/2016) Eric Holder named to lead effort to destroy GOP after Hillary wins the presidency. The headline is a bit hyperbolic and there is certainly nothing surprising about this. The real question has to do with whether Eric Holder is the right guy to head it up.
(10/20/2016) Biblical argument says hold your nose and vote. Please do. Both.
(10/19/2016) Reminder: Washington Hates America. In a nutshell. government bureaucrats hold in contempt the very people they supposedly serve. No one should be surprised, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be doing something about it.
(10/19/2016) 2016’s Terrors Come From Trusting Presidents More Than We Trust God. Good read.
(10/18/2016) Corruption and Collusion. We're talking MSM and Democrats here, so if you rely on the MSM for your news, you are unlikely to be exposed to any of this.
(10/18/2016) In Defense of Pro-Trump Christians. Dennis Prager makes the case. For those that complain that we have two bad choices (we actually have at least five bad choices) and refuse to vote for either, I simply have this to say: Hillary Clinton of Donald Trump is going to be our next president. Unless you truly believe that they are equally bad, you still need to vote for the candidate that you believe will do the least damage to our nation.
(10/18/2016) Politico Co-Founder: Trump Could Lose Texas, Race Not ‘Remotely Close.’ That is the current narrative. The polls are reasonably close, yet I keep reading that Hillary has it in the bag. Politico long since abandoned any pretense to objectivity. Have you read about Politco's Glenn Thrush having the Hillary campaign approve an article he wrote?
(10/18/2016) Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cash. Far fewer making contributions to Donald Trump, analysis shows. Is anyone surprised by this? And yet a well-known journalist recently tweeted that "journalists don't take sides." What a joke!
(10/17/2016) Shameful: 2008 Video Surfaces of Obama Flaunting an Erection on Campaign Plane as Reporters Gawk and Giggle. I'm a little embarrassed to even post this, but take note. Obama did this to reporters during the presidential campaign and it was captured on video. And yet none of the reporters reported it. They all covered it up. Why? Because as Instapundit always says, reporters are just Democrat operatives with bylines.
(10/16/2016) Southern Baptists' Russell Moore: Evangelicals Don't Trust Hillary or Trump. It isn't that I disagree with him, it is just that I am uncomfortable when someone claims to speak on behalf of "evangelicals." Since the quotes in the article preface evangelicals with "many," it is probably a headline writer making a more dramatic headline. Not a good idea since I almost skipped the article because of it.
(10/16/2016) Democrat Leader CAUGHT Explaining How Democrats Use Voter Fraud in New York City! But remember, voter fraud is NOT a problem. Look deeply into my eyes: voter fraud is not a problem, voter fraud is not a problem, ....
(10/15/2016) A Path for Catholics to Dump the Democratic Party. Actually, this article doesn't describe a path at all; it just provides pretty good reasons for Catholics to dump the Democrats. Given that a majority of Catholics vote Democrat, if a fair number stopped it would surely change the political landscape significantly. The WikiLeaks disclosures show the absolute contempt that the Hillary campaign has for the Christian faith and not just Catholics (they think evangelicals are worse).
(10/15/2016) SHOCKER! Check out this ‘Trump vs. WikiLeaks’ network news coverage comparison. Of course, the point is that it is no shocker at all. The WikiLeaks revelations not only make Hillary, Obama and the Democrats in general all look bad, they also make the MSM look bad. We can't have that!
(10/15/2016) Conservatives to Democrats: “Shut up, you hypocrites!” Definitely worth the read. There is a lot of food for thought in this post.
(10/13/2016) FBI, DOJ in Disarray Over Comey and Lynch Giving Hillary a Pass. That may be, but until we have mass resignations and a major housecleaning overhaul, "disarray" is going to do nothing to restore any integrity and will probably make things worse.
(10/12/2016) Astroturf ‘Outrage Machine’ of Paid Trolls Floods Social Media to Counteract Negative News About Hillary Clinton. One supporter being paid to create multiple anonymous accounts does not constitute genuine support for Hillary Clinton. I have noticed that when certain subjects come up in articles at conservative sites (typically LGBT issues, but atheists also seem to be out in force for most Christian themed topics), there are a flood of progressives posting comments almost immediately and those comments are immediately getting a lot of likes. I don't know if people are actually getting paid to post under multiple identities, whether they have a network to notify a crowd that they need to post here or there, or it is just chance. But there certainly seems to be some organization. I don't believe in posting and liking under multiple identities but we Christians and conservatives could sure use some better organizing.
(10/12/2016) Wikileaks Bombshell: Hillary Advisors Admit She “hates everyday Americans.” The problem is that almost everyone already knows this. We also know that the MSM will ignore it, unlike Romney's 47%.
(10/11/2016) Some are upset that Trump talked about putting Hillary Clinton in jail. Their claim is that Trump wants to put his political opponents in jail. The fact that Clinton is actually a criminal seems to have escaped them. Many on the Left actually advocate putting "climate change deniers" in jail. Note also the 16 Times Democrats Tried To Prosecute Their Opponents.
(10/10/2016) Massive Voter Fraud Uncovered in Virginia…Guess How the Media’s Responded? Suffice it to say that the media is biased in favor of progressives, Muslims and Democrats, and against conservatives, Christians and Republicans. Another case in point being the Trump vulgar language tapes. NBC had these tapes for years. Why were they not released during the primaries? Why did they only come out when Hillary Clinton's campaign desperately needed a shot in the arm?
(10/09/2016) Another egregious example of liberal press bias. Bias shows itself in how the press chooses to cover a story - the points they choose to emphasize and the sources they choose to quote. They don't even have to lie, though they sometimes do that as well. But perhaps the biggest bias is simply in what stories they choose to cover and which they choose not to cover. Aside from the presidential campaign, perhaps the biggest bias is in the coverage of Islamic terrorism. For our own good (so the MSM believes) the Islamic connection must be minimized because otherwise we deplorables might go off our rockers and start slaughtering Muslims in the street. And that is the kindly rationale for their bias. Other rationale is less kindly.
(10/08/2016) Progressive "Evangelicals" Show their Bias in Anti-Trump Letter. The author's main concern about this letter is two-fold. First, the letter writers claim the mantle of "evangelicals" yet are uniformly progressives. According to the most typical definitions of evangelicals (here), these folk are evangelicals only by self-proclamation. Second, they could have just as easily written an equivalent anti-Clinton letter, but did not. Hypocrisy, anyone?
(10/08/2016) 5 Reasons Liberals Aren’t Patriotic. As a former liberal, I can vouch for the veracity of these reasons.
(10/07/2016) This week's Thoughts From Ammo Line are particularly good and relevant. For those who are not pleased with the choices for president and are planning to not vote for any of them, consider: life is full of situations where we have a choice between several options, none of which are appetizing, but the choice must still be made. We don't get to simply avoid unpleasant decisions - and if we do, we typically find our situation worse than if we had made the difficult decision from the get-go rather than put it off. So it is with this election.
(10/07/2016) Federal appeals court orders Election Day voter registration in Chicago. May I be blunt? Judges need to be reined in. Rules for voter registration and the like should be up to the legislatures in the various states, not judges. The SSM ruling by the SCOTUS was nothing more than judges creating law from nothing based on their personal opinions. Such power should not be in the hands of anyone, much less a handful of unelected, appointed for life judges. Where are the check and balances? Who can check the courts?
(10/06/2016) FBI Interview with Hillary Clinton About Vince Foster’s Death Vanish from National Archives. Information damaging to the Clintons has a way of disappearing. The late Sandy Berger knows all about it.
(10/05/2016) Please Tell Me These FBI/DOJ ‘Side Deals’ with Clinton E-Mail Suspects Didn’t Happen. But they did. The "Justice" Department looks to be just an arm of the Democrat party. Notice that another case that might make Hillary look bad has been dropped: Department Of Justice Intervenes To Cover Up Hillary Clinton’s Libyan Gunrunning.
(10/04/2016) Yes Virginia, Aliens Are Registered or Voting… and in Pennsylvania, by the Thousands. Voter fraud is a real problem. As I keep repeating, it benefits the Democrat party, so they continue to fight any and all efforts to curb fraud. In fact, they go so far as to promote more registration rules to make fraud easier and easier. Here is more: Voter Fraud Rising; Illegal interference in the battleground states.
(10/03/2016) Appeals court: Ohio voter purge illegal. Various courts seem to have the attitude that nothing can be done to reduce voter fraud if it could possibly make it more difficult for any legitimate voter to vote. This in spite of same day registration available in most states. They never consider that a single illegal vote offsets a legitimate vote.
(10/01/2016) The election is being stolen right before our eyes. The administration is refusing to provide states with citizenship information in order to verify an individual's eligibility to vote. The big story that the MSM refuses to cover is this: an estimated 80% of illegal votes go to Democrats. That, and only that, is why Democrats fight tooth and nail any efforts to reduce voter fraud. Meanwhile, Gov. Jerry Brown in California has just granted all prisoners in county jails the right to vote. The California constitution says prisoners cannot vote, so the governor simply decrees that people in "jail" rather than "prisons" are not prisoners. One guess as to which party most of these people will vote for. Now the real reason for doing this cannot be admitted to, so the party line is that this is being done to "help ease their transition back into society." Friends, the rule of law in America is rapidly being destroyed. Update: Here is another example: Young Virginia Democrat Registers 19 Dead People to Vote for Hillary.
