Ferguson: Not Even An O.J. Jury Would Convict Officer Wilson
  21 Aug 2014     12:04 am

Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson is neither Mark Fuhrman nor Barney Fife. Based on what has been presented so far in the media, not even an O.J. Simpson juror would find Wilson guilty of murder.

Many simply have chosen to believe that teenager Michael Brown was “executed” or “shot several times in the back” — the evidence can wait. Witnesses who definitively assert that officer Wilson “shot him in the back” have been contradicted by the Brown family’s own medical expert, respected pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who conceded the wounds …

Obama: The Iraq ‘Bug Out’ Was Not My Idea
  14 Aug 2014     12:04 am

After our ill-advised complete withdraw from Iraq in 2011, President Barack Obama now sends hundreds of “advisors” and orders airstrikes.
Let’s re-visit.

When, in 2002, then-Illinois State Sen. Obama gave his famous anti-Iraq War speech, he argued that America had no business in this “dumb” war. Period.
Obama considered Iraq a blunder of epic proportions, a misadventure totally devoid of any national security interest. Obama never doubted the assumption given to then-President George W. Bush by all 16 of our intelligence agencies: that Saddam Hussein possessed stockpiles of WMD, specifically chemical and biological …

Democrat Support for Amnesty Threatens Their Most Loyal Voters
  7 Aug 2014     12:04 am

In 1964, Malcolm X chastised black people for their blind allegiance to the Democratic Party.
He said: “You put them first, and they put you last — ’cause you’re a chump. A political chump! … Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that Party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that Party — you’re not only a chump but you’re a traitor to …

Father of Obamacare Makes a “Speak-O”
  31 Jul 2014     12:04 am

Last week, by 2-1 vote, a Washington, D.C., appellate panel ruled that the Obama administration unlawfully changed Obamacare. Meanwhile, on the same day, on the same question, a panel from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the other way. This issue is headed for the Supreme Court.

Michael Cannon, director of health policy studies at the Cato Institute, is — according to CNBC — the “intellectual godfather” of what is perhaps Obamacare’s most serious court challenge. Cannon says when Congress drafted Obamacare, they made it clear: Tax credits, grants and …

Why There Can Never be ‘Peace in the Middle East’
  24 Jul 2014     12:04 am

Secretary of State John Kerry is the latest to think the power of his personal diplomacy can bring “peace to the Middle East.” But, once again, when one side publicly calls for the destruction of the other, what is there to discuss?

Hamas, designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S., has governed the Palestinian territory of Gaza since they defeated rival Fatah, the group that governs the West Bank. Hamas, along with Hezbollah, Palestine Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, Iraqi militant Shiite groups and …

Will Eric Holder Ever Run Out of Race Cards?
  17 Jul 2014     12:04 am

Attorney General Eric Holder, in a recent interview, reiterates the theme heard from the very beginning of President Barack Obama’s administration: opposition to Obama’s agenda equals racism. “There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me (and) directed at the president.”

What is Holder’s proof — to the extent that any is required?
After all, following his election, Obama’s favorable ratings reached nearly 80 percent, higher than any president-elect since John F. Kennedy. Obama, in 2008, received a greater percentage of the “white vote” than did John …

DOW At 17,000 — But You’re Not Invited
  10 Jul 2014     12:04 am

The stock market reached a record high last week, closing over 17,000 for the first time. Good news, of course. As President John F. Kennedy famously said, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” But it sure helps if you own a boat.

In this case, the “boat” would be the dynamic American stock market. But investors in the stock market disproportionately come from the top 1 percent, and they hold about 35 percent of all stocks and mutual funds. The next-richest 9 percent control about 45 percent. The remaining 90 percent …

Obama’s Supporters Said ‘Go Gangsta’ — Too Bad He Listened
  3 Jul 2014     12:04 am

Obama’s poll numbers dropped below those of former President George W. Bush. By the end of Bush’s term, focus groups were telling pollsters they despised the very four-letter word B-U-S-H. When John McCain faced Obama in 2008, Democrats gleefully slammed McCain’s quest as the “third Bush term.”

Given Obama’s light resume and see-no-flaws cheerleading by an adoring media, Obama’s fall was inevitable. If absolute power corrupts absolutely, absolute adoration comes close.
In practically anointing Obama, our “watchdog” media ignored a thin resume full of red flags. So in four years, Obama shoots …

10 Reasons Why Iraq’s Bloodbath Is Not W’s Fault
  26 Jun 2014     12:04 am

1) In 2011, President Barack Obama pronounced Iraq “self-reliant and democratic,” and “a country in which people from different religious sects and ethnicities can resolve their differences peacefully through the democratic process.” In 2010, Vice President Joe Biden called Iraq “one of the great achievements of this administration.” Obama ignored pleas by top generals who advised against pulling out without leaving a residual force.

2) Nearly everybody assumed Saddam Hussein possessed stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. Of the newspaper editorials that opposed the war, not one challenged the assumption that …

Slaughter In Iraq — Bush’s Fault?
  19 Jun 2014     12:04 am

President Barack Obama, on Dec. 12, 2011, called Iraq “self-reliant and democratic.” He praised that country, calling it a “new Iraq that’s determining its own destiny — a country in which people from different religious sects and ethnicities can resolve their differences peacefully through the democratic process.” Obama said, “I have no doubt that Iraq can succeed.”

He campaigned to end the war in Iraq. He did — at least he ended America’s military involvement in the war. He pulled out all the troops, without leaving a residual force behind as …

Obamacare And The CBO — No Longer ‘Giddy’
  12 Jun 2014     12:12 am

How critical to the passage of Obamacare was the 2010 “score” given the legislation by the Congressional Budget Office?
Recall the President’s signature legislation barely passed, and squeaked by along party lines — without a single Republican vote. Before the vote, congressional Democrats waited for the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office to “score” the legislation. How much, per the CBO, will Obamacare cost? Will Obamacare, as President Barack Obama promised, truly (SET ITAL) reduce (END ITAL) the deficit, the gap between what the government takes in and what it spends?

After all, in …

The Bergdahl Deal — Five Terrorists For a ‘Deserter’?
  5 Jun 2014     12:04 am

The Washington Times reports that the Pentagon pretty much knew the whereabouts of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in recent years. So why didn’t they rescue him?
Quoting a former intelligence official, the Times said: “Military commanders were loath to risk their people to save this guy. They were loath to pick him up and, because of that hesitancy, we wind up trading five Taliban guys for him. The mentality was, ‘We’re not going to lose more of our own guys on this.’”

The Times also quoted an anonymous “high-level congressional aide”: “Joint Special …

Isla Vista Murders: What New Laws, What New Lessons?
  29 May 2014     12:04 am

Elliot Rodger’s story is not one of an untreated, mentally ill, white mass-killer who illegally acquired fully automatic “assault weapons.” This mixed white and Asian 22-year-old bought his firearms legally, did not use a long-arm or “high-capacity” weapon and had been in therapy since the age of 8. Half his murder victims were killed by knife. Several of the injured were run over by Rodger’s car.

None of the mental health professionals apparently felt that Rodger was a danger to himself or others. The police had recently conducted a welfare check …

White People Be Playing the Race Card
  22 May 2014     12:04 am

I’m old enough to remember when only black people called black people “Uncle Tom.” Democrats, however, long expanded the category of who can play the race card and on whom. Call them equal opportunity race-card players.

As with black race-card hustlers — say the Revs. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or any given host on MSNB-Hee-Haw — white race-card players label others “racist” for the crime of disagreement. As with black race-card hustlers, white race-card hustlers need not name names when accusing someone of “racism.” And, as with black race-card hustlers, the …

Hollywood’s Beverly Hills Hotel Boycott: Sharia or Islam?
  15 May 2014     12:04 am

The Beverly Hills Hotel, owned by the sultan of Brunei, is a ghost town.
The sultan recently imposed Sharia on the citizens of this small country in Southeast Asia with a population of less than 500,000. The law includes the punishment of death for any who engages in the “crime” of homosexuality or adultery. Jay Leno, one of the celebrities attending a rally in front of the hotel, said: “It’s people being stoned to death. Hello!”

Meanwhile, Bill Maher, another member of the almost-all-Hollywood left, discussed the kidnapping of mostly Christian Nigerian …

UCLA Professor Blows Whistle on Illegal Admissions Practices at University
  8 May 2014     12:04 am

In 1996 California voters passed Proposition 209, which prohibited discrimination or preferential treatment based on race, ethnicity or sex in admissions to public college and universities. But the moment 209 passed, UCLA, according to a new book, set about figuring ways around it.

“Cheating: An Insider’s Report on the Use of Race in Admissions at UCLA,” by Professor Tim Groseclose, describes what the author insists are illegal admissions practices that he witnessed at UCLA.
Groseclose’s story begins in 2008 when, as a member of a faculty oversight committee for admissions, he asked …

Sterling, Media and the Race Card — a Confederacy of Dunces
  1 May 2014     12:04 am

A secretly taped conversation between long-time L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his then-girlfriend was released. The NBA has now banned Sterling from the league. The commissioner recommends that Sterling sell his team.
Goodness, what happened?

 
The old guy had a quarrel with his girlfriend, which she apparently — surreptitiously — recorded. The most eye-raising parts have to do with Sterling, 80, telling his less-than-half-his-age girlfriend that he doesn’t want her attending games with black people, specifically with Magic Johnson. She can “f–k” anybody, he said, just don’t bring “them” to the …

Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter, R.I.P: Triple Murderer Who Fooled Hollywood
  24 Apr 2014     12:04 am

Rubin “Hurricane” Carter has died. Sympathetic obituaries say things like “wrongfully convicted” or “exonerated.” But the black middleweight-title-contending boxer was neither.

Carter, in 1966, murdered three people. But Hollywood later made a movie, “Hurricane,” in which Denzel Washington brilliantly portrayed Carter as a wrongfully convicted near-saint, hounded mercilessly by a determined, racist detective. Excellent moviemaking, but it adds more sludge to the widely held notion of the “racist criminal justice system” that supposedly “warehouses” black males for no reason other than wrong place, wrong time, wrong skin.
So, what really happened that …

Snitchgate — Sharpton Is Still Lying
  17 Apr 2014     12:04 am

If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished.

The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him — The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI “informant.” Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes “snitching.” No, he says he “volunteered” to “cooperate” with the FBI — and for the most honorable of motives.
Why would the government-hating “civil rights” leader cooperate with the feds? …

Why Kerry Let the Palestinians Make a Fool Out of Him
  10 Apr 2014     12:04 am

For reasons perhaps only psychiatrists understand, Democratic presidents seek, at last, finally and forever, to “solve” the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Maybe it’s something akin to discovering that ultimate, clean-burning, renewable source of energy. Then when the talks collapse, an inevitability as long as one side refuses to accept Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, Israel gets blamed.
Secretary of State John Kerry, weeks ago, boldly announced his trip to the Middle East where he would shuttle between the parties, applying his decades of foreign policy experience and skill to at last …
