Trump: ‘Complete Shutdown’ of Muslims Into U.S.

Donald Trump raised the rhetoric bar again as he called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” That our current Administration has no idea what it’s doing was made obvious by the San Bernardino terrorist killings of 14 people, if it wasn’t apparent before. No matter how many times President Obama or the White House assert that ISIS is under control or “on the run,” it doesn’t change the Read more […]

Huffington Post Doesn’t Get It: Politics IS Entertainment

The Huffington Post has moved reports on Trump to the Entertainment page. But they are all Entertainment! By now you have probably seen the announcement of the Huffington Post about Donald Trump: After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s Read more […]

Voters Voted for Gridlock and Liberals Know It

There should be no doubt that Americans voted for gridlock by voting for Republicans. On November 4, while Americans were voting in overwhelming numbers for Republicans, The Huffington Post ran a piece by Jeff Schweitzer: “The Price of Failure and Rise of Extremism: How Democrats Blew It.” Mitch McConnell, with a straight face and no apparent appreciation for irony, said that voters should install a Republican majority in the Senate because his party would “be able to bring the current Read more […]

Donald Sterling Gets Purgists Started; Christians Next

By “purgists” I mean people who want to purge others out of public life or the economy. Perhaps a better word would be “puritans.” They wanted to “purify” society (the church was a large part of society in their day) and so do these neo-puritans—only they come from a vastly different morality. Thus, Craig Crawford wrote in the Huffington Post yesterday: “What About NBA’s Homophobe Owner?” By “homophobe” Crawford means someone who donated to organizations that lobby for Read more […]

Liberals: If We Can’t Make Hobby Lobby Support Birth Control, How Can We Force Photographers To Attend Same Sex Weddings?

Just so you know how freedom has become meaningless to the cultural left, they are in a twist that if Hobby Lobby wins the right to not cover “birth control” on religious grounds, then it might not be possible for homosexual couples to force photographers to affirm same sex “marriage.” From the Huffington Post: Arizona’s attempt to let businesses refuse to serve LGBT people on religious grounds sparked significantly more bipartisan outrage than Republicans’ similar efforts to allow companies Read more […]

A Plea For Corporate Welfare Posed As Concern For Poor

It never occurs to Liberals (or many Republicans) that rather than forcing money into the hands of consumers, the market is supposed to force prices lower for them. So, instead of being happy as prices fall, they are always wringing their hands when businesses that can’t compete begin to suffer. Thus, Huffington Post (from Quartz) on Family Dollar, which is reporting lower than expected profits. As poor Americans come under more and more pressure, more and more of Family Dollar’s revenue Read more […]

Global Warming Fundamentalists Will Not Let Freezing Evidence Shake Their Faith

Chris Mooney is working hard at Slate and HuffPo to convince readers that no mere winter storm polar vertex thing should shake their faith in Global Warming, nor any other instance of climate change scientists behaving like idiots.. Like most believers caught in a lie, he basically doubles down on arrogance and sneering. This works because he has chosen Donald Trump as his target (mentioning a few others after him), and most people assume that it is OK to feel intellectually superior to Trump. Read more […]

Ron Johnson, Republican Senator Traitor On Obamacare?

Now that Obamacare is super failing, and we have a majority who want it rolled back and repealed, the pressure is on the Republicans who were playing along with the conservatives to suddenly pull back and try to save another big government usurpation of the American economy and the people. There really can be no other explanation. If people were willing to vote for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and were willing to vote in favor of the government shut down, then why would the possibly change Read more […]

Yellen Condemns Congress For Not Trusting Economically Stimulating Space Aliens

The Huffington Post loves it, of course: “Janet Yellen Shames Congress For Austerity, Being Terrible.” Right. We have a seventeen-plus-trillion-dollar debt because of austerity. It looks like Janet Yellen will have no problem tackling one of Ben Bernanke’s most important jobs: shaming Congress for ruining the economy. Yellen reminded lawmakers of their sheer terribleness during a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Thursday about her nomination to replace Bernanke as chair of the Federal Reserve Read more […]

Economic Idiocy Among Republicans Doesn’t Mean John Boehner Should Support A Minimum Wage Hike

Usually, when the government refuses to do the overwhelming will of voters, it means they are going to ravage the public to bail out billionaires (TARP), or bomb some country to support terrorists (Libya), or raise taxes. However, in this case John Boehner is heroically (no, I’m not accustomed to using that word with him) holding against the tide. Naturally, the staff at Huffington Post can’t understand this. If Gallup reports that 59 percent of Republicans want a nine dollar minimum wage Read more […]

Red State Fascism: Local News Is Conduit For Police State Propaganda

From the Rolla Daily News in Missouri: Rolla’s SWAT team, trained as well as any metro team, deals with emergencies as dire as those in any big city, Police Chief Mark Kearse told the Rolla City Council Monday night. “We deal with everything that everybody else does here in little Rolla,” Kearse said in a presentation about SWAT that he noted the council had requested through City Administrator John Butz. Hostages, barricades, drug labs, serving of high-risk warrants—all of those potentially Read more […]

Obamacare Is Failing Even Where The Website Works And Rates Are Lower

I honestly don’t know how to account for this. Back on September 30, we were told to expect great things in New York State: “If the volume of callers at the call center is any indication, I know there’s a lot of demand out there,” said Elisabeth Benjamin, vice president of Health Initiatives of the Community Service Society of New York. About 44% of CSS’ clients are uninsured, she said. Because New York was among the first states to establish its exchange, health care advocates say the system Read more […]
