    Please ignore the advertising slogan “What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas.” It’s not true. Las Vegas is the crossroads of America. What happens here is a sure sign of what's happening everywhere. So, I’ve uncovered the biggest liberal scam in America, going on right here in Las Vegas.It revolves around my home community in the suburbs of Las Vegas. I live in exclusive Anthem Country Club. There are about 1500 beautiful homes behind the gates of Anthem. These homes are together worth around $1 billion dollars, behind the gates of just one country club, in just one...

    Face it: Hillary Clinton will never be Playmate of the Year. We know this because apparently only a former Playmate of the Year can finally be the one to take down Donald Trump and The Smartest Woman Ever™ was demonstrably unable to make that happen. This latest deus ex mockable solution to the problem of America electing a guy the elite disapproves of, convincing America to somehow turn on its President because a decade ago he engaged in in real life what hordes of creepy shut-ins engaged in in their own minds, is simply hilarious.Trump hooked up with a Playboy Playmate!...
  • DEFAMATION: The Starbucks Manager Accused Of Racism Is Probably About To Be A MILLIONAIRE

    04/22/2018 9:38:46 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 37 replies
    The former Starbucks manager who called the police on two non-paying black customers earlier this month may have a good case for bringing a defamation suit against the coffee company. In numerous public statements, Starbucks and its CEO Kevin Johnson have gone out of their way to imply that the the female manager, identified in media reports as Holly Hylton, was acting on subconscious racial motivations when she told the loitering customers to either buy a beverage or get out of her store. Crucially, Starbucks has also strongly implied that, as a factual matter, the manager violated company policy.

    Editor's note: This column was authored by Jake Grant. We can all remember that dreaded moment in school––you just finished a test and just knew you didn’t do well. The teacher tells you that they’ll be passing back the test, and you dread that moment all day. Congress likely had that feeling leading up to the CBO’s semi-annual report, “An Update to the Budget and Economic Outlook.” The update includes two important factors, which likely give members that sinking feeling of failing a test: the tax cut passed in December and the massive spending deal approved in February. The outlook was...

    All the "smart people" told us it wouldn’t. They are expecting something else. Something big. Something about a big blue wave.Yet 2018 cannot be measured between the parties of Democrat vs Republican, Conservative vs. Liberal, or any other traditional political construct of left vs right.Never-Trump right of center pundits and lobbyists have aligned themselves with Trump-hating leftists. Traditionally moderate blue-collar Democrats find themselves benefitting from the policies—and even tariffs—from a Republican White House. The economic boom has been unleashed, our enemies have sudden new-found respect for our word, and we may have a President who might actually qualify for...

    Call it the “feel good” political drama of the Spring. Just when you thought the rule of law was sliding down the slippery slope of governmental expediency into the abyss of modish public apathy, there comes a man to save the day . . . armed with nothing but backbone. Oh, and a well-worn copy of the Constitution of the State of Washington. Tim Eyman is the Evergreen State’s best-known ballot initiative practitioner. On Friday, he won an important court case — even though it wrecked an impressive compromise between state legislators, police, and proponents of Initiative 940, a ballot...

    My Facebook friend Lynn Chu, commenting on the remaindering of iconographies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as well as the nonstop and self-defeating promotion of James Comey's book: It's ironic that the more Comey talks the more everyone realizes what a political sleazeball animal he was and how much he tipped the scales whenever he felt his own personal self-interest rising. The Discreet Charm of the First Amendment. Smarmy unwarranted book deals with zero writerly integrity can backfire, you know. Let's just hope the publisher doesn't take a bath that will then have to be taken out of all...

    The giggles from the press gaggle were audible the other day when one reporter apologetically asked Jim Comey for his reaction to the criminal referral drafted by eleven House Republicans. Of course there were no serious follow-up questions. None needed. The DC press corps considers this a joke. They know who the good guys are. Jim Comey was one of them. They know that the noise by this handful of right-wing troublemakers would quickly fade away. It will be swallowed and quickly digested by the DC swamp. End of story. So they could pivot and return their focus to the...

    When the news broke on Tuesday night that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, I was not surprised. Pompeo had long ago established his importance to this administration and his understanding of geopolitics. Pompeo’s skills are precisely why the president nominated him to be the next Secretary of State—and why it’s so absurd that Democrats are reluctant to confirm him.Considering the increasing gridlock in the Senate over President Donald Trump’s nominees, this is a good time to remind our Democratic friends of Pompeo’s many qualifications—qualifications that have only increased since he earned Democratic support to become CIA...
  • California Running Ponzi Scheme with Unclaimed Property Program

    Bernie Madoff became an infamous individual a decade ago for running what appears to be the largest Ponzi scheme in United States (and possibly world) history. At some point his investment program stopped operating as a normal investment vehicle and just took the funds from new investors and paid returns to the old investors. It all ended when the market crashed in 2008 and no new suckers were drawn into his web of deceit. California (and most likely your home state) is running its own Ponzi scheme with their Unclaimed Property program. The question is when will their merry-go-round stop...

    Perhaps the most puzzling thing about autism and ADD is that more than a decade into this public health crisis, our best, smartest government scientists and public health officials still say they have no idea what's causing it. Scary stuff, when parents having a child today realize there's at least an estimated 1 in 150 chance their child will have an autism disorder (1 in 90 if it's a boy). While the government has been utterly unable to stop it, or even tell us what is causing it, they say they do know one thing: it's not vaccines. But today,...

    Imagine, if you will, a cabal of government employees expecting one person to easily win the presidential election, and then the other candidate, the one they couldn’t fathom leading the country, actually wins. Now imagine those government employees aren’t slogging away in the mailrooms of various departments, but they are the upper-echelon of the nation’s intelligence agencies and they resolve to cripple the newly-elected president anyway they can. You don’t have to imagine it, it happened. And we appear to be living in the aftermath of that effort. This is all “fiction,” of course, because none of what follows can...

    A recent story highlights the dangers of a government being entrusted with personal care of individuals. A 911 dispatcher intentionally hung up on thousands of callers in need of emergency help. She remained employed without anyone noticing. For a year and a half this went on, and no one noticed. Homicides, robberies, medical emergencies, etc. All ignored. But the individuals harmed by her cannot bring personal actions against their government. Because the government has something called governmental immunity. This law is troubling for advocates of limited government. Basically, irrespective of whether you pay taxes and abide by the law, you...
  • Trump has the constitutional authority to fire Mueller -- Here's why

    Fox News ^ | April 21, 2018 | Hans A. von Spakovsky
    It would be unconstitutional for Congress to prevent President Trump from firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. I’m not saying that firing Mueller would be a wise move politically, nor am I urging the president to do so. That’s another issue. But under the Constitution, it is beyond the power of Congress to limit or impose conditions on any president’s authority to remove a political appointee within the Justice Department or any other department in the executive branch. Whether you think Donald Trump is an absolutely wonderful president or an absolutely...

    Sometimes a simple news item captures a problem so completely it makes your mouth go dry. Consider the following headline from Deadline.com: "As Molly Ringwald Turns On The Breakfast Club, Dare We Laugh At Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty? The op-ed is from the site’s executive editor, mind you, not a casual contributor. The column wonders if we’re allowed to laugh at the comedienne’s new film. The official description for “I Feel Pretty,” opening April 20, sent Social Justice Warriors and select reporters into a frenzy. Judge for yourself: In I FEEL PRETTY a woman who struggles with feelings of...

    It happened again this week, another university professor was exposed as an unhinged liberal, filled with uncontrollable rage. In the aftermath of the death of former First Lady Barbara Bush, tributes flowed in from around the world, except not from Randa Jarrar, a Fresno State University English professor. Jarrar tweeted that Mrs. Bush was a “racist” and that she was glad the “the witch is dead.” In response to the outpouring of support for the Bush family, Jarrar tweeted, “F… outta here with your nice words.” She also expressed extreme hatred for the relatives of Barbara Bush, tweeting “Can’t wait...

    For years now, the Pentagon has been in the market for new heavy-lift launch vehicles – rockets that can lift between 44,000 to 110,000 pounds. Currently, the only market options available are either too costly or too reliant on Russian-made parts.To that end, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced that he will begin devoting most of his company’s efforts on developing the “BFR” – short for Big F-ing Rocket – which will allegedly be so huge and powerful that it will make the company’s previous rocket lines outdated in just a few short years. Musk stated at the South by Southwest...

    The Iran lobby is digging deep in an effort to drum up support from anyone and anywhere to preserve the Iran nuclear deal including circulating a letter from members of the French, British and German parliaments addressed to the U.S. Congress.The letter is rife with the same common misperceptions that the Iran lobby has worked hard to foist on an unsuspecting world. None have done as much spadework in engineering this plethora of fake news than the National Iranian American Council.Among the common misperceptions in the letter are:“The only reason we were able to achieve this breakthrough is that we stood...

    Castro's (unregistered) agents-of-influence are frantically busy this week thanks to their (unregistered) accomplices in the Fake News Media. All claim an earth-shaking "transition" is underway in Cuba! Needless to add, according to these (unregistered) foreign agents, President Trump should promptly avail himself of this golden opportunity to embrace those harmless, innocent, free- health-care providers that U.S. policy has unjustly and vicariously “bullied” for ‘lo so many years. Could anything be more transparently facetious and idiotic? To quote the late Joan Rivers: “Can we talk?” In fact, what’s happening as Cuban “President” (dictator) Raul Castro “steps down” in favor of Cuban...

    Trial lawyers hoping to take a big bite out of food producer Monsanto’s bottom line with a lawsuit over its most popular weed-killer have run into a problem – the judge who they need to convince their arguments are valid is not buying it.In 2015, the International Agency for Research and Cancer, based in Lyon, France, declared glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, the world’s most popular weed-killer, a “probably human carcinogen.”No other scientific body has reached that conclusion. Indeed, the Environmental Protection Agency says glyphosate is safe for humans when used in accordance with label directions, the National Institute...
