Frankly, there really is no question if the president has the authority to restrict immigration for national security. The applicable federal law is crystal clear. The “judge”who blocked this order is placing his opinions and feelings above his duty as a judge.
Feminism, we are told, is about empowering women. Empowering women to make their own choices, control their own bodies, run their own lives. In short then, feminists will tell you that women NEED feminism because of sexism and inequality. That is the message and rhetoric of Feminists, but the truth is quite different. In truth, feminism is about pushing leftism, and embittering, and thus controlling women, thus empowering feminists, and, again, furthering leftist ideology.
Again, if you might be thinking I am way off base here, consider how Feminists walk the walk on “empowering women” to make any choice they wish. Much like the self-appointed civil rights leadership seeks to keep Blacks from thinking for themselves, and leaving the Plantation of Liberal Ideology, feminist leaders seek to keep women “in their place” which, of course is bitter angry, and indoctrinated into the Left’s definition of feminism.
If a woman is pro-abortion, she is empowered. If she dares be pro-life, however, she cannot really be a woman.
If a women speaks “truth to power” on equality, and shrieks constantly about the evil Patriarchy, and sees every male glance or flirt as sexism, she is a member in good standing with feminists. Let a woman speak out and say she likes being attractive to men, or that she sees nothing evil about being flirted with, or complimented by a man, and she is a disgrace.
If a woman rails against traditional gender roles, and marriage (which any good feminist will tell you is rape), and stay at home moms, she is a warrior for social justice. But a woman who defends typical gender roles, and marriage, and raising her kids by actually raising them, then she is called a fool and a traitor to feminism.
If a woman uses her voice to bash the NRA, and gun owners, then she is a valued voice to the Left. But a woman who defends gun ownership, concealed carry, and actually trains with and carries a gun herself, she is bashed. Never mind that such a woman IS the true definition of what feminism ought to be. Such a woman is thinking for herself, and speaking out, and is actually walking the walk. But to feminists, she is a cancer, and must be ostracized and belittled.
In short, being a good feminist means being a woman who toes the lines correctly, and only makes life choices that the Left finds valuable. Consider a few more examples.
A woman should be free to control her own body, unless she wishes to control her own medical insurance and care. Or unless she chooses to pose for pictures men will enjoy, of course. Then she is serving the Patriarchy and betraying women somehow.
A woman must NEVER enjoy being attractive, and any men must never ever look at a woman, or direct any compliment towards a woman’s looks. Somehow noticing that an actress, or news anchor is attractive demeans her intellect somehow. Funny, I never knew that only unattractive people can be smart. This of course, goes against nature. Men are, by definition attracted to women, and vice-versa. Trying to change that dynamic is as likely to succeed as trying to pet a wolverine is.
Women must use their voices to help further certain causes, unless those causes are against leftism of course. This is why women like Michelle Malkin, and Stacy Dash and S.E. Cupp, or Katie Pavlich are so savaged by the Left. They do not “know their place”. Odd isn’t it? There is likely no greater form of sexism than feminism. Especially towards very attractive women. And yes, I find the four women I named very attractive, I also find them intelligent and fascinating and admirable. See, you CAN indeed appreciate a woman’s mind, ideals, and looks. Well, unless you are a feminist that is. After all, that whole equality thing is only for women who follow the feminist rules.
Ooouuuch. My sides are still aching after last week’s comical announcement by GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush that he had snagged the coveted endorsement of notorious electoral reject Eric Cantor, the former House majority leader kicked to the curb by disgusted voters in Virginia’s 2014 primary election.
Newsflash to GOP elites: Getting Cantor’s support is not like landing a prized marlin. It’s like hooking one of those hideous bottom-feeding blobfish named the world’s ugliest creature.
Inside the Beltway, The Washington Post reported, “Cantor remains well-liked and respected in the Virginia business community and among the Republican donor class in the commonwealth.”
But outside the Beltway, the failed Republican revolutionary-turned-Wall Street influence-peddler is a snortle-inducing spectacle on both sides of the political aisle.
In Cantor’s endorsement statement Thursday, he praised Bush as a “true conservative leader” who “can re-energize our nation and recapture our greatness.” That’s empty babble coming from the epitome of an out-of-touch, self-aggrandizing, revolving-door ruling class.
BushCantor share the same smug condescension toward Americans who believe in strict immigration enforcement and putting American workers first. Cantor fecklessly lied to voters during the campaign season about his position(s). He showered his district with anti-illegal immigration flyers that fraudulently portrayed him as standing up to President Obama on amnesty. But on Capitol Hill, he championed the DREAM Act for illegal alien students, huge H-1B visa increases to quench Big Tech’s appetite for cheap foreign tech workers, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce/AFL-CIO’s collaboration on massive immigration expansions.
While Cantor lip-synced to the limited-government tea party message, he boogied in backrooms with his pork-barrel pals. He assailed Obama’s bloated stimulus and then celebrated the high-speed rail boondoggles in his state funded by it. As a celebrated “young gun” on the right, Cantor preached fiscal responsibility, while blowing nearly $170,000 on fancy steakhouse dinners across the country in his last year in office.
Like Bush (and Gang of Eight cheerleader Sen. Marco Rubio), Cantor was the beneficiary of – and water carrier for – generous Silicon Valley and Big Business contributors. Cantor’s biggest donors included New York financial conglomerates the Blackstone Group ($65,500) and Goldman Sachs ($26,000), and California tech company Oracle ($25,000).
By contrast, the biggest donors to Cantor’s successful challenger, libertarian economics professor Dave Brat, were Virginia couple Gerry and Karen Baugh of Baugh Auto Body ($5,400), Michigan writer and artist Louis McAlpin ($5,200), and retired Virginia couple Martha and Kenneth Schwenzer ($5,200).
One outside group, the American Chemistry Council, spent a whopping $300,000 on soft-money ads to protect Cantor – an amount that exceeded Brat’s entire campaign funding.
Likewise, while Bush fashions himself a champion of the American worker, he pompously pushes the Gang of Eight amnesty as the only “adult” plan in the room. While he poses as a champion of American parents, students and “school choice,” he trashes activist moms and zealously crusades for failed Fed Ed rackets and data-mining schemes masquerading as “higher standards.” And while he stumps for the ordinary American’s “right to rise” through conservative principles, he has parlayed his political career into a multimillion-dollar collection basket from liberal special interests and corporate cronies who fund his Common Core advocacy – including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the GE Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Intel and Pearson Education.
BushCantor seem to think everyone else will suffer from Sudden Election Amnesia Syndrome and grant big-spending, open-borders Republicans blanket amnesty for their betrayals. But what Brat told voters in Virginia about Cantor goes for voters nationwide as Bush flounders. “Eric Cantor doesn’t represent you,” Brat bluntly warned. “He represents large corporations seeking a never-ending supply of cheap foreign labor. He doesn’t care about how this will affect your livelihood, your schools, your tax bills or your kids’ chances of finding a job.”
The disgraced seven-term representative from Virginia’s affluent 7th district, who turned his back on grassroots constituents in favor of cashing in on power, now promises to work closely with Bush “as they chart a course to the White House.”
Here’s to Cantor’s success in helping Jeb navigate his same path to loserdom. Bon voyage!
I have had enough of smug liberal elites wrapped in their “Celebrate Diversity” banners tearing down minority conservatives.
Look in the mirror, media and academia bigots. Your own reflexive racism and divisive rhetoric are poisoning public discourse. There’s nothing “progressive” about attacking the children and grandchildren of immigrants who proudly embrace an American identity.
We are not “self-hating.” You just hate what we believe.
The most recent grenade tossed by the jack-booted Enforcers of Ethnic Authenticity came from The Washington Post this week. The Beltway fish-wrapper hyped a 2,100-word investigation of GOP Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal with a condescending quote from Professor G. Pearson Cross, who sneered: “There’s not much Indian left in Bobby Jindal.”
Has pallid Professor Cross invented an ambient diagnostic test to measure sufficiently acceptable levels of ethnicity?
The Post quoted a grand total of one disgruntled Democratic donor who railed against Jindal for “forgetting” his “heritage” and his “roots.” But that was more than enough for the apartheid-lite adherents to heed the dog whistle immediately. The Post’s splashy attack on Jindal’s assimilationist ethic spawned a vile Twitter hashtag game: #BobbyJindalIsSoWhite.
Left-wing racists mocked his skin color, his kids and his decision to change his name from “Piyush” to “Bobby.” A New York Times digital editor, Shreeya Sinha, gleefully linked to a BBC compilation of “The best of #BobbyJindalisSoWhite.” NBC News gloated over tweets from liberal Indian-Americans who mocked the accomplished governor, Rhodes scholar and father of three as a “Jindian.”
Great piece, go read it all. Michelle lays bare the bigotry, and hatred of the Left
This is my list of the 25 most important blogs to follow right now, right now meaning in these times. These blogs are leading the charge against Obamacare, runaway government power grabs, entrenched politicians who care nothing about the Constitution, those who would take our guns, those who would impoverish us all in the name of fighting climate change, radical race baiters, and radical Feminists, and yes, the Islamization movement that would have us bow to Sharia Law. In short these are the 25 best blogs to read if you love America, our Constitution, and liberty!
No, I did not include this blog, although I think it is right up there with those I did list.

Actually, Jones has always been nuts, and there are likely no meds that can help this deranged loon. Here Donald Douglas smacks Jones for his nasty attacks on Alyssa Milano. Yes, as Douglas points out Milano is a Lib, but she is also a nice lady, and she does not deserve the vile attack Jones launched. What an ass clown!
“War whore”? Alex Jones is a despicable conspiracy theorist who spent years pushing 9/11 Truther nonsense. At the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Alex Jones spotted Michelle Malkin at a protest and he started shouting “neocon” and a bunch of other stuff, which incited some protesters to start chanting, “Kill Michelle Malkin.”
If it hadn’t been for Charlie Martin and Jim Hoft being there to defend her, who knows what might have happened?
I’ve hated that dangerous kookball ever since, and the fact that Alex Jones is now smearing a liberal like Alyssa Milano (while, characteristically, ranting about the “New World Order”) goes to show just how little Alex Jones’s paranoid anger has to do with actual politics.
Alex Jones is worse than those idiot liberals who were raging because Alyssa Milano appeared on Fox and Friends this week.
If anybody needs rational arguments against the Syria intervention, I’ll be happy to provide them, but you’re not going to get any rational arguments from Alex Jones about anything.
I also love this tweet that sums up Alex Jones quite well
Dylan Bleir is, as Stacy McCain notes, a typical lying Democrat
Oberlin College student Dylan Bleier identified himself as an “atheist/ pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist,” which is to say he is a typical lying Democrat criminal:
One of the two students removed from Oberlin College earlier this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
Dylan Bleier, one of the two students, organized a voter registration drive on behalf of Obama before the 2008 election. That voter drive is still listed on the website for Organizing for Action, the non-profit group whose mission is to advance Obama’s agenda.
The Oberlin Police Department identified Bleier and his partner in the spree, Matt Alden, as two of the principal architects of a month-long spate of racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus.
Oh the Left LOVES stories like these, and the media? They cannot get enough, as it fits their “America is RAAAAACIST” mantra. But, what would the media, and the Left do if these “hate crimes” were fake, as many such incidents prove to be?
This would have been a hate crime if it had been true and it is twice as wrong because it was a damnable lie which, as Oberlin alumna Michelle Malkin makes clear, the administration was willing to accept as a pretext for more of their endless “diversity” indoctrinations. The usual suspects were part of the dishonest cover-up:
School officials and local police knew the identity of the culprits, who were responsible for most if not all of such incidents on campus, yet remained silent as the campus reacted as if the incidents were real. . . .
The New York Times, among dozens of newspapers, covered the story, publishing photos of the protests. . . .
Melissa Harris-Perry was all over it, along with Ta-Nehisi Coates, using the Oberlin experience to draw larger points about racism .
Babbling, race-obsessed idiots!
Oh, and the person in the “Klan robe” was actually just a woman in a blanket, but, MHP does not care about that.
Oh you just KNEW that Melissa Harris Perry, and her tampon earrings would be all over this. And if you are waiting for her to retract any statements she made, do not hold your breath. People like Perry are great at fanning divisive flames, but admitting they were wrong? Eh, not so much. In fact I would not be stunned at all if Leftist agitators like Perry continue to reference “Olberlin College” in the future. Leftists not only lie, but they repeat those lies, even after they have been proven false. Darleen Click explains “fake, but accurate”
The college’s administration knew early on this was a hoax and chose to remain silent. They deliberately fed into the Leftist narrative that America is more racist than ever.
Will there be any consequences for Oberlin’s despicable behavior?
Probably not, as “fake but accurate” is a guiding Leftist principle.
Just as morality is subjective among Leftists, so is the definition of truth. If it fits their agenda, it is true, even if it is completely fabricated!
Just one more example that when the Left says “by any means” they mean it!
First Michelle destroys a Leftist gun control zealot.
I do wish Michelle had told this nitwit that it is ALREADY illegal for anyone under 21 to buy a handgun. But, it is hard when he would not shut his mouth for fear of facts being brought up. My question is this guy that stupid, or is he just preaching what has been programmed into his brain?
Next Michelle points out the racist motive of the Oklahoma murder, and the typical Leftist double standard
Maybe not Crazy Legs, maybe not. But, you are a shameless, clueless political hack who has to pry your lips off Obama’s rear to speak.
“But they first of all referred to him, not as the ‘President of the United States’ but as a ‘liberal leader.’ They refer to the health care act of 2010 as ‘a bill.’ They refer to him as ‘Obama.’ They don’t say the ‘the president.’ They don’t say the ‘a law.’ They don’t even speak the language we normally speak in civilized political debate. They’ve changed it so much that he’s actually not really supposed to be there, and I’m not paranoid.”
THIS is why I call MSNBS, I watch so you do not have to, the Tree of Low Hanging Blogging Fruit. Matthews says the most inane things, and his guests, who are just as big a morons as Matthews go along with him. The video at the link is a classic example of how far out in left field Matthews and his followers are. First, they play a clip of Donald Trump and use HIS words to bash Conservatives. Let us set this straight folks once and for all. Trump is NOT a Conservative. He is a carnival barker, a publicity whore, a Televangelist with worse hair, and a used car salesman in a better suit. Trump is a loathsome SOB, who apparently knows what to say to get on TV. Fox seems to love them some Donald for some reason. The first time I saw Trump, my BS Detector pegged! If you are getting the impression I would not piss on Trump if he was on fire, you are getting the right impression.
Sorry for the rant, really, but I have never been able to stomach Trump. If you want to hear a REAL, GENUINE, no BS Conservative, come down to Texas, and listen to our governor. Listen to Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Michelle Malkin, Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, or many of the bloggers like Ed and I, and those on our blogroll. Most of us are not after money, or fame, we do what we do on our time. On days off, after work, before work, and we do it because we CARE about America. But does Fox call us up? Do any big time radio talkers, who by the way talk about many things bloggers talked about a week before call us up? Hell, some of them do not even give credit for the blog they get the story from! Bet your ass Trump would do or say just about anything if there were $$$ attached, but for free? Yeah right! Maybe that is what riles me most. Folks who do it for publicity, fame, wealth, get the spotlight, usually saying the same damn things over and again while the bloggers like us, who are likely more insightful, and who bust our asses because we love America get squat!
Again, sorry for the rant. Hell I forgot what this post was supposed to be about now
Conservative firebrand Michelle Malkin went off on Al Sharpton on Wednesday’s “Hannity,” dismissing him as a “race charlatan” and “demagogue” who is known only for spreading “racial divisiveness and hate.”
“Al Sharpton has blood on his hands,” Malkin began. “He’s ruined lives. He’s been one of the worst purveyors of racial divisiveness and hate in my lifetime. How can you expect an ounce of honor from a man who doesn’t have it?”
She went on to call Sharpton a “shakedown artist” who hates “cops,” “whites,” “Jews” and “who has stoked his rent-a-mob to murder Yankel Rosenbaum, to destroy the life of Steven Pagones when he lied about Tawana Brawley.”
Malkin also warned conservatives not to get into the “snake pit” and attempt to have an honest discussion about race with people like Sharpton. She said conservatives have been far too “nice” thus far.
“You can’t with somebody who is a demagogue and is evil,” she added.
Later in the program, host Sean Hannity played a compilation of Sharpton’s most vitriolic and hateful moments, which Malkin described as “chilling.”
“In an era where we are supposed to take Martin Luther King’s words to heart about judging people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, all this man has done is enrich himself by fomenting more racial division,” Malkin reacted.
She added that it’s amazing Sharpton, a “race charlatan,” thinks he “can lose weight, put pancake makeup on, and all of a sudden he’s respectable.”
Which reminds me I need to do my most admired Conservatives list, I will work on that, you watch one of my heroes
1) This is President Obama’s number one political agenda item because he knows we will never again have a Republican president, ever, if amnesty goes into effect. We will perpetually have a progressive, liberal president, probably a Democrat, and we will probably see the House of Representatives go into Democrat hands and the Senate will stay in Democrat hands. – Michele Bachmann
2) The bill is worse than universal healthcare. Listen to me, it is worse than universal healthcare, and in the coming days as we get closer, we will explain why it’s worse than universal healthcare. It is the death knell of the country, there is no recovery from this one. None. No recovery. – Glenn Beck
3) If Republicans are opposed to what mass immigration is doing to the country demographically, ethnically, socially and politically, there are, as Reagan used to say, “simple answers, just no easy answers.”
Those answers: No amnesty, secure the border, enforce laws against businesses that hire illegals, and impose a moratorium on new immigration so wages can rise and immigrants enter the middle class and start voting as did the children and grandchildren of the immigrants of 1890-1920 by 1972.
So what are the Republicans doing?
Going back on their word, dishonoring their platform, and enraging their loyal supporters, who gave Mitt 90 percent of his votes, to pander to a segment of the electorate that gave Mitt less than 5 percent of his total votes.
Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. – Pat Buchanan
4) The nation’s plutocrats are lined up with the Democratic Party in a short-term bid to get themselves cheap labor (subsidized by the rest of us), which will give the Democratic Party a permanent majority. If Rubio’s amnesty goes through, the Republican Party is finished. It will be the “Nancy Pelosi Democratic Party” versus the “Chuck Schumer Republican Party.” – Ann Coulter
5) Instead of cracking down on the Administration’s abuse of power, S. 744 places unprecedented new restrictions on interior enforcement – making the current situation much worse and much more hazardous. It is as if S. 744 were explicitly written to handcuff law enforcement officials – binding their hands while giving virtually unchecked authority to executive branch officials to prevent future removals, including removals of criminal aliens. – ICE Council president Chris Crane
6) It doesn’t stop illegal immigration. If anything it makes the problem worse by not securing the border and by incentivizing future illegal immigration. – Ted Cruz
7) Creating more than 30 million new immigrants, including 11 million former illegals, and supplanting their numbers with another 20-odd million guest workers is from a sociological and demographic point of view quite radical: 30 million is roughly a tenth of the current population of the United States. How we handle immigration is of fundamental importance to questions ranging from national security to economic growth to the character of our nation itself. That we cannot get a couple of small-time performance benchmarks written into the bill suggests that this issue is not being treated with the intelligence and the prudence it deserves. – The Editors at National Review
8) This is the administration that has refused to enforce the law… they have created new law out of nothing. They’ve violated the law in a number of ways. And our guys are counting on the administration to all of a sudden actually keep their word on something like securing the border when they’ve never done it before and they believe it’s in their political interest to continue not to secure the border even if there’s a deal? I mean that’s crazy to think they’re going to start securing the border and until we secure the border everything else is completely meaningless. – Louie Gohmert
9) Should this be grounds to primary challenge every Republican who voted for this bill, and I mean every single one? I don’t care if they just got re-elected. Next time they’re up for re-election. Ann Coulter’s right. This is a single issue – this is a single-issue primary challenge. You know why? Because this is it. As Bill Kristol said on this show, as he said on this show, once you give this pathway to citizenship all these benefits, all this discretion to [Janet] Napolitano, it’s over. It’s too late to complain about it. It’s over. – Laura Ingraham
10) The federal judge in Crane v. Napolitano has ruled that the ICE agents are likely to prevail in their argument that the Obama administration is ordering them to violate federal law. Think about that: This administration is ordering career law enforcement personnel to break the law. Now, the administration is pushing for an amnesty bill that contains almost nothing to improve immigration enforcement. All that the American citizens will get in return for the amnesty is the promise from the Obama administration that they will try harder to enforce the law. The administration has already shattered that promise, doing exactly the opposite. This is a stark warning to Congress. I sincerely hope that they hear it. – Kris Kobach
11) Almost every requirement in this bill can be waived by Janet Napolitano: for instance, the time limits on when people can be legalized, the requirements on criminal activity or even the enforcement triggers. Those basically don’t mean anything if any of them is held up in court, still. …The litigation over the 1986 bill didn’t end until just a few years ago. The ACLU has been quite clear that it intends to sue to stop mandatory e-verify and probably sue to stop a bunch of other things. If, for instance, mandatory use of electronic verification is still in the courts 10 years after the bill passes, it’s entirely possible the Secretary of Homeland Security can just give everybody Green Cards on her own – and there are hundreds of other examples of that kind of discretion. It’s not too much of an exaggeration to say that this 1,000 page bill after all of the amendments could be boiled down to, “We trust you, Obama; just do the right thing.” – Mark Krikorian
12) The ‘Gang of Eight’ bill is not immigration reform. It is big government dysfunction. It is an immigration Obamacare. All advocates of true immigration reform – on the left and the right – should oppose it. – Mike Lee
13) Okay. So what does that mean, the republic is at stake? This is the ball game. I remember people saying that about Obamacare. Now they’re saying it about immigration reform. And they’re both right. In the case of immigration reform, it effectively wipes out the Republican Party. – Rush Limbaugh
14) Will they listen? Suicidal Republicans have supported illegal alien amnesties dating back to the Reagan era. They have paid a steep, lasting price. As bankrupt, multiculti-wracked California goes, so goes the nation. The progs’ plan has always been to exploit the massive population of illegal aliens to redraw the political map and secure a permanent ruling majority.
Now, in the wake of nonstop D.C. corruption eruptions, SchMcGRubio and Company want us to trust them with a thousand new pages of phony triggers, left-wing slush-fund spending and make-believe assimilation gestures. Trust them? Hell, no. There’s only one course for citizens who believe in upholding the Constitution and protecting the American dream: Stop them. – Michelle Malkin
15) On every major front, this legislation fails to deliver on its core promises. It delivers only for the special interest groups who helped write it. Should it pass, it would represent the ultimate triumph of the Washington elite over the everyday citizen to whom Congress properly owes its loyalty. – Jeff Sessions
More opinion articles:
Excerpt – Every time I go on his show, my radio pal Hugh Hewitt asks me why congressional Republicans aren’t doing more to insist that the GOP suicide note known as “the immigration deal” include a requirement for a border fence. I don’t like to tell Hugh that, if they ever get around to building the fence, it won’t be to keep the foreigners out but to keep you guys in.
I jest, but only very slightly and only because the government doesn’t build much of anything these days – except for that vast complex five times the size of the Capitol the NSA is throwing up in Utah to house everybody’s data on everything everyone’s ever done with anyone ever.
Excerpt – One might expect Keith Alexander to advocate on behalf of the two programs at the center of our national debate about terrorism and surveillance. He is, after all, the head of the National Security Agency, which runs them. “It’s dozens of terrorist events that these have helped prevent—both here and abroad-in disrupting or contributing to the disruption of terrorist attacks,” Alexander testified last week.
And it’s not entirely surprising that the four leading members of Congress on intelligence matters would argue on behalf of these programs, known as “215” and “702,” for the sections of the laws that authorize them.
Excerpt – One of the most common arguments for allowing more immigration is that there is a “need” for foreign workers to do “jobs that Americans won’t do,” especially in agriculture.
One of my most vivid memories of the late Armen Alchian, an internationally renowned economist at UCLA, involved a lunch at which one of the younger members of the economics department got up to go get some more coffee. Being a considerate sort, the young man asked, “Does anyone else need more coffee?”
“Need?” Alchian said loudly, in a cutting tone that clearly conveyed his dismay and disgust at hearing an economist using such a word.
Excerpt – We all know now what the vengeful Obama IRS has been doing to conservative nonprofits the past four years: strangling them in the crib. But do you know how much pampering and largesse far-left welfare-state charities have received while limited-government groups suffered? You don’t know the half of it.
Before President Obama took office, I warned that Democrats planned to steer untold amounts of taxpayer dollars to his shady community-organizing pals. The Dems’ 2008 party platform proposed the creation of a “Social Investment Fund Network” to subsidize “social entrepreneurs and leading nonprofit organizations (that) are assisting schools, lifting families out of poverty, filling health care gaps and inspiring others to lead change in their own communities.”
Excerpt – Grutter v. Bollinger was the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that upheld the University of Michigan Law School’s racial admissions policy. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, writing for the majority, said the U.S. Constitution “does not prohibit the Law School’s narrowly tailored use of race in admissions decisions to further a compelling interest in obtaining the educational benefits that flow from a diverse student body.” But what are the educational benefits of a diverse student body?
Intellectuals argue that diversity is necessary for academic excellence, but what’s the evidence? For example, Japan is a nation bereft of diversity in any activity. Close to 99 percent of its population is of one race. Whose students do you think have higher academic achievement – theirs or ours?
Excerpt – “Why are there no libertarian countries?”
In a much-discussed essay for Salon, Michael Lind asks: “If libertarians are correct in claiming that they understand how best to organize a modern society, how is it that not a single country in the world in the early twenty-first century is organized along libertarian lines?”
Such is the philosophical poverty of liberalism today that this stands as a profound question.
Definitions vary, but broadly speaking, libertarianism is the idea that people should be as free as possible from state coercion so long as they don’t harm anyone.

According to Michelle Malkin at Twitchy and Sooper Mexican the spiteful and malicious left just can’t contain their glee that Rick Warren’s youngest son Matthew committed suicide. Rick Warren’s crime? He doesn’t affirm the gay lifestyle, so these compassionate and kindly leftists take to twitter in droves celebrating the grief that the Warren family must be feeling. Their fondest fantasy seems to be that hopefully Matthew Warren is gay and therefore his death can be blamed directly on his ‘homophobic’ father. There is no evidence that the younger Warren was homosexual, but why let that get in the way of a triumphant daydream?
More loathsome hatred here
And gets owned by The Blogging Role Model
Trump has a rather long history of hostility toward conservatives like Malkin, a New York Times bestselling author and New Media entrepreneur who created the popular Hot Air political blog as well as the innovative Twitter aggregation site Twitchy, as well as her own highly trafficked site, MichelleMalkin.com. It is highly unlikely that she will back down in her battle with Trump.
Trump is a bully who is used to pushing people around and, unfortunately, some Republicans have been willing to enable his bullying. Quite frankly, he’s one of those celebrity characters — like Geraldo “El Spitto” Rivera — whom Fox News executives tolerate because they’re good for ratings. Also (and I think I’m not the only one who sees this) there’s a kind of old-boys attitude with Bill O’Reilly in particular: Geraldo and Trump are “one of the guys,” and so the brass at Fox are apt to indulge their hateful attitudes toward Malkin. But don’t for a minute think that Malkin is going to put up with Trump’s bullying.
He is upset because Michelle calls him for being the phony he is.
