OUR LEADERS HAVE FAILED US:It's all about misguided Political Correctness and Progressive politics.Andrew McCarthy as the former (successful) prosecutor of the Blind Sheik is the authority on Jihadism as it impacts our safety  as Americans.  His recounting of the  history of our liberal democracy's treatment of radical jihadists over the let 40 years, the many attempts of the Progressives to be open to dissent and to welcome aliens into our political life with all its protections of free speech and thought, is all here in this article.  There is really only one of two ways to proceed from our vulnerabilities to this threat today.  Either we crack down and eliminate all radical imams and their Mosques that are alive and well among us, just about everywhere in the country, or we reject future immigrants who follow the religion called Islam and heighten our surveillance of those who are currently among us. In either event the first step is to unwind all the restrictions imposed on the FBI with respect to investigating radicals.  Agents now are instructed more in protecting the rights of the radicals than they are in discovering who they are  and where they are. The result is the  Mateen person who just murdered 50 innocents in Orlando.  He was, despite his background and history of support for jihadists, treated with kid gloves and allowed to move freey among us without reasonable scrutiny.  Political Correctness killed everyone of those innocents in Orlando and those in charge of our government for many years but especially for the last decade are directly responsible for this atrocity.  Failure to come to grips with this malevolent curse of jihadism and Islamism will result in more of these attacks and eventually to another one like 9/11.

AMBASSADOR BOLTON WEIGHS IN: And this is the non-liberal view of Brexit that many of subscribe to.

WE'LL SEE: Libs everywhere are gnashing teeth and crying about the sky falling.Actually it takes the cake here to compare  Brexit to the dissolution of the USSR but that is what this overwrought lady does.  I guess she doesn't  agree there was anything inherent evil about Sovie Russia.  She should have spent a few years in a gulag, or at least talked with Solzhenitsyn.

INTERESTING STATISTICS HERE: Useful if the center doesn't hold.

THE LOSER IS: The elites and special interests.

THE BREXIT VOTE IS IN: And the winner is: FREEDOM. Love the Brits.

WHAT'S RIGHT ABOUT BREXIT: It's all about history and self government.

CLINTON CORRUPTION:Trump may be the only one politician capable of bringing this corruption to light because he does not play by the Marquess de Queensberry rules of engagement.

MORE CLINTON CORRUPTION: REFORM of the charitable organizations desperately needed.We cannot have billionaires controlling the electoral process through charitable organizations.  Especially not binaries who are foreign or who are in collusion with foreign forces.  Cpaitalism needs to reign in these characters before they corrupt the entire system, which it is apparent they are trying to do.

RECOVERING THE SENSE OF PATRIOTISM: It's all about the school system for many, many children.

INDIVIDUAL MARKET CHOICES, THE ONLY CHOICES:Anathema to liberals, all liberals.

LIVELY DISCUSSSION OF OBAMA AND ISLAM:And the loser is….the gullible American voters.

THE FUTURE FOR SENIORS HEALTHCARE IS HERE:Rule by additional rule the squeeze is on.

WHERE DOES BREXIT LEA?: And how Breit mirrors the politics of the US in this election cycle. Jonah Goldberg has identified similarities between the leadership of the EU, the leadership of the US, and the reactions going on in politics today.  A lot of the distrust between the governed and the governors has to do with the remoteness, or put another way, th unaccountability of the leadership to the governed.  This likely has to do with the centralization of power in a remote bureaucracy such as we see in Washington and Brussels.  Getting government closer to the people results in better overview of the governors.  Remoteness breeds unaccountability.

HAYEK EXPLAINS TRUMP AND HILLORY: Their appeal is covered i "Road to Serfdom", the quasi political tract that explains a lot.

A FRACTURED WORLD INDEED: The incessant meddling and intervention by the political class has led to a world of weird and unrealizable ecpetations based on many false premises.  It is all coming unglued because the multicultural value free world is build on shifting sands.  Humpty Dumpty has fallen apart.  It will take a lot better political leadership than we have and have had now for quite some time to put Humpty-Dumpty together again.

THIS WRITTEN IN THE '60'S!: And the debt today is…..Well many multiples of then in inflation adjusted $.  Keynsian economics means spending to the exclusion of savings and if consumers don't cooperate and spend enough the government will do it for them.  As simple as that.

HOW THE PC MOVEMENT STARTED:All by some juvenile college kids who probably didn't wan to fight the Vietcong. In many ways it's hard to fault them for this ridiculous outcome, sense the war was poorly justified and poorly executed by the Johnson Administration.  Leave it to liberals!  What's confusing is how current liberals forget history and hold Democrats blameless in matters of warfare.

FRIGHTENING STATE ORTHODOXY: Naturally California's leading this outrage. Long live Jerry Brown, who was in charge when we moved to Craziifornia 45 years ago, and is still in charge.

WANT TO KNOW WHAT BEING AN AMERICAN MEANS?It means Ayaan Hirsi Ali, that's all.

WORTHY DISCUSSION OF ISLAM:But somehow incomplete without the context of Islam's historic aggressiveness.  Sorta like discussing communism without observing that the engine of this worldwide disease was the Communist Party cadre that drove its policies and evil intents.  McWhorter misses this point entirely.

SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT:Hard to argue with Codevilla on this story in Claremont.

MORE INTEREST HOKUM FROM THE FED:According Austrians this is pure BS.

WHY ASIANS AND JEWS VOTE DEM:Mayb they're more given to following their leaders??

MORE ON KEYNESIAN FALLACY: That fellow Keynse sure riled folks up.

BREXIT, YEA AND NAY. There are arguments on both sides of this vote.  The argument to LEAVE is well-presented in this piece by Simons and the other argument here by the NYTimes piece misses the point made in the Simon piece by hardly acknowledging it.  That point would be that open borders policy as promoted by the EU has allowed Muslims unlimited access to the Continent and to England without consideration for the very obvious connection to terrorism. It is difficult to imagine why the author of the Times article virtually ignores this threat in the aftermath of Paris, among many recent examples of the risk of allowing virtually open access by immigrants from Muslim countries. If these people are peaceably assimilating into their adopted states, there is scant evidence to support that case.

DOES CORRUPTION MATTER TO DEMOCRATS: The obvious answer on a resounding , NO!

THIS SHOULD BE THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN:Obama MUST answer for this. This PC stuff has gone on far, far too long.  It's getting innocent people killed.

EXERCISE ROUTINE:For over 4o crowd.

IS HE A MUSLIM? Looks suspiciously like it.

COMPELLING LIFE STORY:Very convincing reason based on a real life story for 2nd amendment rights.

SOMEDAY WE'LL HAVE THE ANSWER TO THIS:Why Obama does not or is unwilling to use the phrase "radical Islamists".

LIBS HATE HAMILTON: What do you expect, he was a patriot.

OBAMA: THE RATIONALIST PERSPECTIVE ON HISTORY: It's the old dream world vision thing liberals have always done.

THE IGNORANCE IS MIND BOGGLING: Look for more of this in the coming years absent a revival of free market capitalism.

WHEN THE INMATES ARE IN CHARGE: Think French Revolution. The liberal education is dying before an attack of radical black students, no less. And the will to resist is weak, which may result in the chaos that followed the French Revolution.

THIS COULD BE GOOD:Hayward is amusing and educational:

HIL AND BILL, THE CORRUPTION TWINS, AT WORK: Given cover by the Clinton mainstream media division.  This guy appears legitimate.This one is a most unusual example of the nexus between the Foundation and Hil's job as SecState.  Sounds like 55 mil in support from State to Laureate University which in turn appoints Bill to the position of Honorary Chancellor at a 16 mil over four years.  This is so blatant it's simply hard to believe it can be going on right under our noses and NO media discovery???? Makes Trump's little scam look like chump change…he doesn't even rip off taxpayers in his scam,  Big question:  Why is State funding for-profit schools.  Why, why, why??!!

TRUMP HAS A POINT:We are a dumping ground for undesirables from Mexico, Cuba, and others. Why not encourage bad guys to leave: it means less law enforcement, less trouble.

WHERE'S THE MSM ON THIS FRAUE?The Clintons make Trump look like a piker on this particular fraudulent scam.

MULTICULTURALISM VS. MULTIRACIALISM: If US goes down this multiculturalism route too long and too far, the result could be ugly.  It's starting to be thus.Oh my, look where we are headed.

THE EVOLUTION OF MEDIA:What was up is now down. BuzzFeed?

TIME TO GET SERIOUS WITH THE MLM CROWD OF REVOLUTIONARIES: Like how about throwing them out of schools where at age 20 they think they know everything anyway.

IT IS A GIVEN THAT OBAMA IS AT A MINIMUM A SOCIALIST: The market is no longer in control.  This clown can't disappear from sight soon enough.

A BIT GLOOMY FOR CURRENT YOUNGER GEN: Why does it always seem to happen?

CONSPIRICIST THEORIES AUTHOR JACK CASHILL :He goes where others fear to tread. In addition here he is on TWA 800


HE'S RIGHT, OF COURSE:Not sure these complainants should be at schools like this. It's all tiresome and unnecessary distraction from the purpose of being in a school like this.  There are schools more appropriate for these children and they should be encouraged to attend them rather than trying to accommodate their insatiable need for attention.  I.E., they are not capable of doing the work.

A COURSE OF STUDY FOR EVERYONE: This should be required study for everyone of any age.

HE CAN'T HELP HIMSELF:Trump is clearly unfit to be POTUS and should be stopped. It's as though he wants to destroy the Republican Party by trolling himself. Given that their are issues surrounding La Raza and the "hispanic/Mexican" self identifying that is prevalent, Trump has brutally mishandle his objection to this judge by injecting racism into his complaint.  In other words he has a point but is not being helpful by making it in the manner he is.

LISTENING TO JAZZ: How to appreciate this art form.

ADMINISTRATIVE JUSTICE: Too mush regulation and too many regulators, and too much union influence, Gibson guitars proves it!!!

ADMINISTRATIVE TYRANNY: Regulatory agency running amok. This must be stopped.

CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS: Bernard Lewis is now 100 and going strong.

VIETNAMSES HAVE DISCOVERED CAPITALISM: Although they are far from ultimate freedom, they are better off than under Ho.

SILVERGATE FOR PRESIDENT: And Heather MacDonald for VP, or either way.

BILL WHITTLE IS AN INTERESTING COMMUNICATOR:Here's the proof.

SACRIFICIAL LAMBS: The SWJ movement is firmly and deeply rooted in Universities all over the country. AND THEN READ THIS It will probably take a highly destructive depression or such to remove this Marxist cancer from our disintegrating society.  It comes down to a lack of understanding of human nature and how the modern economy works.  In the first case the failing is in the demise of religion in the advanced societies and in the second case it's the lack of knowledge about how a modern economy works.

HE'S PROBABLY RIGHT: But still Trump is not an attractive nor desirable candidate and will be a poor choice as POTUS. However, he would be acceptable in lieu of anyone the deems put up who are all socialists.

WRITTEN 23 YEARS AGO:This makes Michael Creighton a savant since it's mostly come or coming true.  The only feature saving mTV edia at tho point is panel discussions with an intelligent moderator who keeps his biases to a minimum.  Otherwise hit all depends on how the material is edited and typically its edited according to the biases of the editors.  Holds true for print media as well.

HYPOCRISY IS HIS BYWORD:Amazing the lowlifes attracted to politics. It's now all about interest groups and how to get their votes.  It's not about the best interests of the country or nation.

LIBERAL MEDIA CAN NEVER BE TRUSTED:Curic is now firmly in the Cronkite/ league of liberal frauds posing as reporters.

VON MISES TO THE RESCUE: It helps to have actually lived the problem. Most economists are Keynesians and talk is abstract trims about solutions to problems like Venezuela's or don't talk about them in the first place.

A PARTIAL ANSWER TO WHAT'S HAPPENING:Of all the excuses offered for this behavior the one that sticks is they cannot do the work.  And the there's THIS.  And for the full story there's this book.

I'M ON BOARD: Cooking steak is an art form. Ribeye is the best.

ENDOWMENTS UNDER THE GUN: Inevitable since taxes go where the money is.

INTERESTING ANIT-TRUMP ARGUMENT: But in the end Hillary is a worse bet than Trump because of her 100% commitment to social justice and social engineering.Also when making an anti-Trump case for the presidency, the last person I would quote to support my case would be David Brook.  You will remember this faux conservative thought Obama would make a great president.  He also noted approvingly the crease in Obama's trousers.  Since Obama had no experience in the commercial whorl, had never "worked" for a living, had only the experience of a community organizer, an adjunct professor and a politician. Hardly great qualifications, in fact no qualifications.

THIS IS THE ONLY REASON TO SUPPORT TRUMP: It's a case of fighting fire with fire, which country club Repubs are never willing to do.

COMMON SENSE: Why is this so difficult to understand and act upon?

THE CLINTONS AND "ACCIDENTS": It all seems so implausible and yet its the Clintons,  nothing's implausible.

THIS POST AND THE COMMENTS THAT FOLLOW TELL IT LIKE IT IS: Fernndez has articulated and defined the issues surrounding present day politics and how it came to pass that the world seems to be coming apart at the seams.

THIS IS WHY WE'RE IN SUCH TROUBLE:
NEW OBAMA/HOLDER DECEPTIONS EXPOSED: Turns out the Department of Justice under former Attorney General Eric Holder used the power of government to force settlements on Bank of America, Citicorps and other financial industry titans that required them to make millions of dollars in contributions to “community groups,” including many that are political favorites of President Obama and advocates for more government regulation.
Richard Pollock of the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group reports on a briefing Friday by the Cause of Action Institute and Rep. Sean Duffy, the Wisconsin Republican who is chairman of the House Financial Services subcommittee on oversight and investigations. It’s bad enough that these big banks routinely collude with the government on regulation; here they are found submitting themselves and their abundant resources to serve the liberal political agenda.
“Among the political activist groups favored favored by the settlements is La Raza, the nation’s largest Hispanic activist organization that routinely supports Democratic candidates and causes. Cecilia Munoz, a La Raza senior vice president, was appointed by Obama in 2012 to head the White House Domestic Policy Council.
“La Raza is flush with money, reporting in 2013 to the IRS assets of $55 million. Janet Murguia, the group’s president and CEO was paid $417,000 that year, according to the group’s IRS tax return. Even so, La Raza is slated to receive at least $1 million from the Bank of America settlement and $500,000 from the Citigroup settlement,” according to Pollock.
There is more here to this story, much, much more, and all of it is worth reading. Just be careful to keep some nitro pills handy in case you have a weak heart because this stuff will make your blood boil. This is a story of liberal politicians using the power of government to divert millions of dollars slated for folks suffering in 2008′s housing meltdown to political groups, all to advance their personal and political agendas.

WHY GOP'S IN TROUBLE: And why both parties are failing.

HEAVY AND A BIT SCARY: Hints of neo-Nazi stuff.

A ONE MAN FREE ENTERPRISE WRECKING CREW: This guy has done enough damage considering his contribution to the housing collapse.

PERSPECTIVE ON FDR: Much more harm than good.

THE LEFT AT WORK: This is getting worse and worse.BLM movement is a Marxist attempt to take over the education establishment. They don't have to try very hard, the blacks in the '60's pretty much accomplished that, is why there are so many useless course of study in schools around the country.

WHAT IS TRANSGENDER ALL ABOUT: This is at least a coherent explanation of what's going on with the bathroom edicts of Obama. Come to think of it when's the last time anyone heard Obama or any other liberal discuss the concept of freedom of the individual to live his life as he wants to.  I cannot ever remember a liberal discussion freedom in this context.

WISDOM OF THE AGES: Free trade is timeless wisdom many do not comprehend.

SUPER PIECE BY THE INCOMPARABLE VDH: Glad this guy's on my side. VDH is a practical intellectual whose feet are firmly planted in reality.

HE'S STILL BETTER THAN THE ALTERNATIVE: So revealing. A natural born bully. Gonna be interesting!

INTERESTING TAKE ON CRONY CAPITALISM FROM A CRONY CAPITALIST: This will be a story to watch.

KEN BURNS REDUX:.Qualifies as an artist with a liberal perspective.

WHY TRUMP CAN/WILL WIN: The main reason is democrats are all in for political correctness, victimology, and gender identity politics. Demorats will get us all killed sooner or later.

SPEAKING FOR CONSERVATIVES: This truly is eye-opening. A vivid example of progressive rot.

KIDDIE CORPS:Obama surrounded himself with little Obamas. And what you get is a bunch of college juniors making policies that affect the rest of the whorl.  This was apparent from the beginning of this administration and is the reason why thinking people saw through Obama's candidacy from day one.

THE DANGEROUS LEFT: How WWII began and why.

FEDERAL RESERVES ROLE:  Where's Milton Freidman's computer?Freidman fmously remarked (in jest?) that the FRS should be replaced with a programmed growth percent in a computer.  What's wrong with that idea?

PIKETTY HAS FACTS WRONG: At least according to Robert Murphy

THERE'S A LOT HERE THAT MEETS THE EYE: Michael Walsh has more right than wrong here.
I cannot say I agree with all the points Walsh makes here (description of Libertarians is off, for example, and Iraq/Afghanistan wars were excusable, under the circumstances) but in the main he gets a lot right.  The Legislature must assert itself and take back its prerogatives.  Far too much power has been delegated by it to the other branches of the government.  Reign both other branches in, should be the new mantra.  HOWEVER, to accomplish this we need major reforms in the legislature itself.  The concept of the "professional" lawmaker has got to go.  Since when did it become a good idea for politics to become a profession and a career.  Very strict term limits are needed, plus putting a stop to the revolving door for politicians to seamlessly move from lawmaker to lobbyist and back.  Next let's find a way to limit the number of lawyers in the body politic, for God's sake.  Let's have more businessmen, more practical sorts, more variety to represent all factions of the general population.  Demagogues should be shunned from the public square.  All this has to start with how we get our news and the sources that provide it.  Corporate news providers for profit like Fox, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, need to be held strictly accountable for their management of this vital public service.  Given the First Amendment, this is a touchy subject, but one that needs thought because these organizations are subtly, and dangerously skewing the news in ways that are not in the public interest.  One example:  The "protection" of Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama over the serial lies about the cause of the Benghazi raid and death of four Americans.  Democrat Party supporting news agencies from CBS to the NYTimes failed to get at the truth of what happened there and in fact enabled the Democrats to obfuscate the facts to the point Barak Obama won a second term when in fact he should have been held accountable.  This is outrageous and demonstrates the uselessness of these corporate news agencies as responsible reporters of the facts and circumstances of events that affect lives.  There's more, much more that needs to be done to protect the interests of all the people and turning the reigns of government over to corrupt political parties will not get it done.

THE CONSERVATIVE CREED: Sign me up for all these reforms and return to sanity.

THE MAKING OF OBAMA'S FOREIGN POLICY: And why it has failed so miserably.

DEFAULT SOVEREIGN DEBT?He can't be serious, can he?

HOW BLACKS WERE BETRAYED BY DEMOCRATS: It's now a vicious circle of dependency, voting for democrats, more dependency, etc, etc.

AN INSIGHT.There's truth here.

A BOOK TO READ:  Sounds very interesting.
