Capitalism Destroys Poverty; It Is Righteous, not Sinful

Pope Francis 1 Capitalism destroys poverty but people who fight against capitalism destroy the poor. Pope Francis has made it clear that he will use his office to promote Leftist weather scams and prefers input from pagan pantheists to skeptical climate scientists. It is quite obvious this Christian leader hates cultures of freedom, trade, entrepreneurship, and private charity. He prefers societies dominated by corrupt and totalitarian governments. He is an ambassador for turning the few islands of prosperity Read more [...] Continue reading →

No Promise from Obama to Put His Boot on the Throat of EPA

epa logo When BP spilled oil in the Gulf, Obama officials promised to keep his “boot on the throat” of the oil company. But the EPA is exempt. In case you don’t remember, here is the NPR headline from May 2010: "BP Will Feel Either 'Boot On Throat' Or 'Feet To Fire'" The Obama Administration clearly wants to send the signal that it's keeping the pressure on BP to do everything humanly possible to stop the uncontrolled flow of oil in the Gulf of Mexico and to get the company to pick up the cost for Read more [...] Continue reading →

Republican Leaders Are not Leading Much with Trump Around

dead-gop-elephant Donald Trump did not damage the GOP but represents the damage done by Republican leaders. Every time the first symptom of a man's folly appears, he strongly condemns it as a miscreant who came in uninvited and as an alien to everything he stands for. In other words, stop telling me how Donald Trump is damaging the Republican Party. The fever is not the cause of the infection. At the Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes pretty much tells Republican leaders they have no one to blame but themselves: “The Read more [...] Continue reading →

We Have Not Yet Begun to Fight Planned Parenthood

joker lion pp To fight Planned Parenthood requires a long-term commitment. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but while I am posting about the loss of stature of Planned Parenthood, I also need to report that we have a long way to go. Here’s Mollie Hemmingway in The Federalist: “Thanks To Media Blackout, Most Americans Are In The Dark About Planned Parenthood Videos.” That seems incredible to me, but there are still a great many people who don’t watch Fox and don’t pay attention to the conservative Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Obamacare Exchanges are Complete Failures

ObamacareAmbulance So if the Obamacare exchanges don’t work, why does anyone trust the government to deliver healthcare? This blog reported on the failure of the Obamacare exchanges back in May. The situation is only getting worse. Now, the Associated Press has even admitted to it: “State Obamacare Exchanges Struggling With High Costs and Disappointing Enrollment.” State-run health insurance markets that offer coverage under President Barack Obama's health law are struggling with high costs and disappointing Read more [...] Continue reading →

Hillary Clinton Has Power to Make New York Times Change Its Story

Hillary-Clinton Can you imagine what would happen if anyone else tried to make the New York Times change its story? The scandal of Hillary Clinton’s private email server has just reached a new point, since it looks like proof has been discovered that she used it to send classified information. But even with this revelation we see how Hillary Clinton gets special treatment. At Politico.com we learn that the media bows in deference to her even when they catch her. The New York Times made small but significant Read more [...] Continue reading →

Police Are Still Hiding the Evidence in the Twin Peaks Shooting

twin peaks It seems more and more that, if this was really a gang fight, that the police would not be hiding the evidence. When I first heard about the Twin Peaks shootings and the arrests, it was because some of the conservative blogs found the Waco Police Department’s story did not make sense. Then NPR joined in and pointed out some more reason to believe that innocent people were being prosecuted. Now Conor Friedersdorf is writing about it in the Atlantic: “Waco Is Suppressing Evidence That Could Read more [...] Continue reading →

Chicago Investigator Fired After Claiming Police Shootings Not Justified

cop drives by The Chicago investigator refused to change his findings when his superiors ordered him to do so. WBEZ 91.5 has published a local story about a Chicago investigator that is well worth your time and attention: “City fires investigator who found cops at fault in shootings.” A Chicago investigator who determined that several civilian shootings by police officers were unjustified was fired after resisting orders to reverse those findings, according to internal records of his agency obtained by Read more [...] Continue reading →

Medicare Is Rotting into a Rationing System

Medicare Cuts With medical expenses going up, how could it possibly become anything else but a rationing system? Reading the Washington Examiner story, “Medicare's midlife crisis: Catastrophic finances pit doctors against patients,” I was reminded of all the promises that have been made about Medicare. These promises could not possibly be sustained. George W. Bush made promises in 2003 when he expanded Medicare. CNN reported, High on the list of things not covered in the bill is a mechanism to stem rising Read more [...] Continue reading →

Former Dem Presidential Candidate Calls for Prison Camps for the "Radicalized"

prison Bill Clinton’s former general wants prison camps throughout Europe and the U.S. Here is Wesley Clark: He is quoted at Breitbart.com: Well, we’ve got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. We’ve got to cut this off at the beginning. There are always a certain number of young people who are alienated. They don’t get a job. They lost a girlfriend. Their family doesn’t feel happy here. And we can watch the signs of that and there are members of the community Read more [...] Continue reading →

Ending Equality for Women: Transgender Sports

end of girlsports The New York State Public High School Athletic Association is about to vote on the “most inclusive” transgender sports guidelines ever. Since we already have a hunk of transgender womanhood hospitalizing females in the MMA, and the Armed Forces is about to open the floodgates, of course it is time to institute transgender sports. Victor Skinner at EAGnews.com writes, “New York mulls ‘most inclusive’ transgender student athlete rules in nation.” Officials with the New York State Public Read more [...] Continue reading →

Confirmed: War against Ridesharing is War against Poor

uber_logo Ridesharing is half as expensive and twice as fast. So politicians want to steal it from us. The study was paid for by Uber, so there will be plenty of denials. But the test looks valid to me: The design could hardly have been simpler; we sent pairs of riders to call for taxi service or use an app to summon UberX for travel along pre-planned routes. The riders recorded how long it took – starting from the moment of picking up the phone or opening the app – before they were actually in a car Read more [...] Continue reading →
