VOTER FRAUD: There's an obvious reason Dems deny it and a community organizer would know that better than anyone, no?

SAMANTHA PRICE AND US POLICY: the linchpin of a failed policy

THE GREAT DIVIDE:Why Trump won by VDH and the responses create an interesting story.

BEEN GOING ON FOREVER:Dirty tricks, etc are political tactics.

A POLITICIZED REPORT ON CRIME: And what would you expect from the Obama crowd.

THE PELOPONESIAN WAR:Its probably happened but will it go on?


The degree to which Obama has wielded executive power in favor of America’s enemies and against his own political opponents and scapegoats is breathtaking. The treasonous Manning gets an 80 percent shave off his sentence. Now we learn Oscar Lopez-Rivera, an unrepentant FALN terrorist convicted of waging war against the United States, has also had his sentence commuted. Taliban commanders are released, replenishing our jihadist enemies even as they continue prosecuting a terrorist war against our troops and allies, in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, a deserter who may, at least indirectly, have caused the deaths of American soldiers. Iran is enriched and empowered with tens of billions of dollars – including ransom cash – and a mammoth nuclear energy program (with the certainty that it will yield a nuclear weapons stockpile) even as it remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism calling for “death to America.”
But if you are Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative Obama critic, the Justice Department inflates an administrative violation into multiple felonies and aggressively advocates (thankfully, without success) for a stiff prison sentence. If you are a tea party group gearing up to fight Obama’s re-election, here comes the IRS. If you are “anti-Muslim video producer” Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and Obama needs a scapegoat for his derelictions in Benghazi, you end up in the slammer. If you are a deep-pocketed financial institution that Obama wants to make the culprit for the government-driven financial meltdown, or to raid so the radical left’s legion of “community organizers” can be funded, prepare to pony up a 9- or 10-figure “settlement.” If you are a police department, be ready to be scandalized as a practitioner of racially malicious enforcement. If you are Israel, brace for the “international outlaw” smear.

O'SPATHETIC LEGACY: This piece supports the argument Obama is an Islamist.The removal of the Churchill bust from the Oval Office suggest this as well.  It was Churchill who famously dissected the Mohmmadens in one of his books as a faith that disses women, has accomplished nothing and is a scourge.  He probably didn't like that assessment too much.

WHY WE HAVE HUGE DEBT PROBLEMS: It's so easy to spend other people's money.And then justify it with logic only a socialist could understand and appreciate.

HIS LAST COLUMN: A remarkable man who led a remarkable life.

ROUSSEAU BIOGRAPHY: This could be a good read after Burke.

MORE FROM HEATHER MACDONALD:When does this reach the tipping point

THIS STORY WAS BURIED FOR 8 YEARS DURING THE CORRUPT O REGIME:  It's time to resurrect it that it would not be repeated under any administration.

THAT FIRING WAS AN EARLY SIGN OF THE GANGSTER GOVERNMENT TO COME:  Gerald Walpin, inspector general fired by Obama, dies.

Gerald Walpin, the inspector general who was at the center of controversy in 2009 when he was fired by the White House amid an investigation of an Obama friend, died today. He was 84.
Walpin’s son-in-law, Allan Tananbaum, said Walpin was struck by a car while crossing a street in Manhattan.
Walpin was fired in June 2009 for his investigation of the misuse of money in AmeriCorps, the service organization that was part of the Corporation for National and Community Service, where Walpin served as inspector general. The investigation focused on Kevin Johnson, the former NBA star who became mayor of Sacramento, Calif., and was a prominent Obama supporter.
Johnson founded a school called St. Hope, which received about $850,000 in AmeriCorps grants.Walpin discovered that Johnson and St. Hope had failed to use the federal dollars they received for the purposes specified in the grant and had also, as Walpin told me in an interview at the time, used federally funded AmeriCorps staff for, among other things, “driving [Johnson] to personal appointments, washing his car and running personal errands.”
Walpin recommended that Johnson and St. Hope be barred from receiving future federal funds.
It turned out to be an enormously controversial recommendation. As Walpin finished his probe, Johnson was elected mayor of Sacramento. If Johnson had been barred from receiving federal grant money, the city might not have been able to receive a share of the billions of dollars in federal stimulus money being handed out by the Obama administration.
There was enormous pressure on Walpin to back off. He didn’t. On June 10, Walpin received a call from a White House lawyer. “He said, ‘Mr. Walpin, the president wants me to tell you that he really appreciates your service, but it’s time to move on,'” Walpin recalled to me later. “[He] said, ‘You can either resign, or I’ll tell you that we’ll have to terminate you.'”
Walpin declined to resign and was fired on the spot. His firing was a violation of rules regarding the dismissal of inspectors general.
And it’s been stuff like this ever since, with barely a peep from the usual political-ethics watchdogs.

SOMETHING TO READ FROM THE NYT: Sugar free month experiment.

COMMENTS ARE PRICELESS: Especially those by "Jonathan Swift" who has done his homework.

10 LAWS OF ECONOMICS: From the Mises site

LESSON IN BANKING: The movie's a morality show. Also describes problem with government interference in the economy via FM,et al.

COMMENTS ON VON MISES: Author of a Mises reader publication newly available.

LIBS AT WORK: Doing what they do best

INTERESTING FAMILY:It doesn't take much in the absence of debt.

MAY OBAMA ADMIN'S MOST DESTRUCTIVE POLICY: This is truly shameful.For some reason blacks will not own up to the obvious fact the black family is dysfunctional because there is no black family to speak of any more.  Moynihan described this in the '60's and it has only gotten wore.  He was shamed for bringing this out and there has been no attempt to address the problem since.

SUMMARY OF OBAMA YEARS IN OFFICE:  Good as this summary is it overlooked O's major contribution to racial healing as the first black president.  I suspect he'll be the last for the foreseeable future.

EXCELLENT SUMMARY OF EIGHT WASTED YEARS: So much to do to make up for last time. Is Trump up to it?

TO THE POINT RE GOVERNMENT:He's exactly right about civil society taking over once again from the make-work busybodies.

REMINISCENT OF DR NOSEWORTHY: Presentation at JI in 2016 re senescent cells.

THE LIBERAL TAKE ON BLACKS:It's all about feeling superior.

WHAT IS THE MODERN MUSEUM?: Entertainment or art appreciation.

DIDN'T EVERYONE KNOW? I mean, Ponzi scheme on steroids.Politicians and unions are a toxic mix and somebody will pay for this business through the nose.  Somebody?  The taxpayer, of course.

THERE'S ONLY ONE ANSWER: No more Muslims until their theocratic system is reformed.And until their religion conforms to Christianity, i.e., is a religion of peace and love.  forget those who claim it is already.  It is a religion funded by a violent tribesman who was a pedophile by current day standards.  It is a religion that has embedded into it the seeds of violent extremism and until that religion has its equivalent of the Nicene Creed and agrees to excommunicate and expel all those who do not accept the Creed, they must be shunned and avoided at all costs.

THE DEBT BOMB:Armageddon? or just another naysayer???????

SHADES OF JIM WHELPLEY: impressive prediction.


THE ANTI PC MOVEMENT:Significant pushback going on at the University of Toronto  What happens to this professor will be indicative of where this PC totalitarian movement goes in the future.  He's a voice of clarity and reason.  Students are being brainwashed badly by our so-called institutions of higher learning.

IT'S ALL-OUT THE COST OF LABOR:Not sure Trump gives a rat's ass about anything long term.This is what conservative ere worried about.  He's a wheeler-dealer but not a conservative.  But, he's ten time better than the alternative of Hillary, so I'll take him.

SEAN PENN AND THE IDIOCY OF HOLLYWOOD:This clown thinks he's brilliant and articulate. He follows Noam Chomsky, and that tells one everything.  Trouble with liberals is they know a lot but it's all wrong.  Ahat's more, they always seem to draw the wrong conclusions from life.  Penn makes 20 million per film and is opposed to the system that allows this.  He does not, however, stop making the films that make him rich and among the 1/10th of 1 percent of the population.  It's easy to be a hypocrite knowing there are no consequences to ones hypocrisy.

WHY IS SOROS ANTI AMERICAN?: The man is not all that American even if he's a citizen.

SABATO'S ANALYSIS:SABATO' unusually reasonable analysis.

BRILLIANT ANALYSIS OF O'S LEGACY: Conrad Black outdoes himself with this one.  Take a bit of exception with presenting O as a genial sort with the best interests of the US at heart.  He was/is and American hater who fundamentally wanted to change the direction and cutture of the country.  In addition as an idiotic "community organizer" he surrounded himself with mindless children who were there because they worshipped his palaver and coolness.  They provided no counterbalance to his worst instincts and judgment, which were most of his instincts and judgments.  Ben Rhodes, anyone!! Valerie Jarrett, anyone??? And look at the heads of all the ministries with the exception of FBI and even that one was possibly tainted.  This was a man with no real world experience and was in charge of the world's largest and most important democracy.  What kind of abject foolishness is that?  Please!  Thomas Sowell, like others of us, saw immediately that this man was a fraud and that only Democrat Party was capable of electing such as he.  This was truly an unfortunate election and a waste of eight years, time needed to get the country back on track from the lackluster Bush years, preceded by the lackluster Bush-Clinton years.  About the only growth experienced in the US economy for the last 25 years has been government bureaucracies, regulations and social discourse.

Election Day.  Looks like Hillary.  Batten down the hatches.

THESE STATS ARE TROUBLING:More people working for the government than work in manufacturing???

OUT-OF-STEP WEIRDO PROFESSOR; CConservative professor at Yale?

RESULTS IN. TRUMP WINSMark Steyn was right going back before Trump was even nominated. This, is a very astute political observer. An amazing story.  Steyn has a touch that few others do regarding American politics.  Maybe its because he's a native born Canadian, now an American naturalized citizens, who simply see things more clearly.  He's always ben perceptive but these predicttion going back before the primaries are positively eerie.  Eerily right.  Wow.  I'm impressed!

WELL PUT: Don't know this author but h's right on many levels.

IF TRUE DITCH THE POLLSTERS:Maybe they just didn't poll the right people.

SHELBY STEELE IS RIGHT: This should be required reading by liberals everyday until they go mad, or agree

GREAT EXPLANATION OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE:It's all about a boxing match scoring analogy AND HERE'S ANOTHER PRO EC COLUMN: If toy don't respect federalism you're for popular vote determinant.

COULD'NT AGREE MORE: Bolton speaks knowledgeably and directly. Think Kerry's opposite.

WHAT TRUMP HAS AHEAD OF HIM:The spending machine is out of control.

THE PROGRESSIVES HAVE THE SCHOOLS:When you have the youth you will have the revolution. The sad truth is the youth have been coopted by the educates and professoriate and are now in the vanguard of the progressive takeover, Trump notwithstanding.

A MODERN MARX: Pinkerty is a french socialist.
