  • Ear-piercing Screams to Mark ‘The Rise of the Woman’ in Weekend’ Women’s March

    And until the progressive-left can figure out the way to blame Donald Trump for Saturday’s nuclear button push in Hawaii, the screams of women world-wide will remain the loudest Trump smear of the moment. Harvey Weinstein-like producers of BIG FICTION are releasing a Blockbuster Movie on the 1st Anniversary of the Women’s March. This time Linda Sarsour, Ashley Judd et all will take a back seat to millions of screeching-for-social-justice bit players schooled by the progressive left over the past year. Their amplified message is that the angry white men who run the system have gone from suppressing women to...

    Congressional investigators probing the origins of the Steele dossier have set their sights on a brand new target — The Obama State Department. Were Obama State Department officials responsible for spreading discredited tidbits compiled in the dossier through the media? Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes may soon find out. Byron York of the Washington Examiner reports the Obama State Department is now being probed as to whether or not they had a hand in the dossier. York notes Steele was viewed inside the Obama State Department as a valuable source for intelligence on all things Russia. Obama State officials made a...

    If we are to believe the transcript of Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, released unexpectedly by Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., the search for a smoking gun in the dossier scandal may lead us to a dead body, at least according to Simpson’s lawyer: During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in August 2017, Glenn Simpson was questioned about whether he tried to “assess the credibility” of sources behind information uncovered by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who compiled the dossier. “Yes, but I’m not going to get into sourcing information,” Simpson...

    The wave of corporations announcing employee bonuses in the wake of the recently passed Tax Cuts & Jobs Act was denigrated by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) as “pathetic crumbs. These corporations are getting billions in tax cuts, but are only giving out a few thousand to employees.” While the “few thousand” is a per employee figure, the total being paid out in bonuses is in the billions. So far, over two million employees are set to receive a bonus averaging up to $3,000 per worker. On top of these bonuses there will also be individual tax cuts. H...

    The Pentagon’s top enlisted officer issued a threat Tuesday to the jihadis of the Islamic State that unless they surrender, they'll be beaten to death with Army shovels. The threat comes following a statement on January 1 from The ‎Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve, in which they claimed that the Islamic State has lost 98 percent of its territory in Iraq and Syria.Army Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell, who is the senior enlisted adviser to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, took to Facebook and posted his threat. Using the hashtags #ISIS_SurrenderOrDie, #SEAC3, #DefeatDaesh, Troxell wrote, "ISIS needs...

    Some nice antiques on the table Image from bristolpost.co.uk  England promoted a national firearms amnesty/turn-in during 2017. In Bristol, 313 "guns" were turned in, along with a whopping 120 rounds of ammunition! That is one round of ammo for every 2.6 "guns". I put "guns" in quotes, because only 186 of the 313 items were actual firearms. Most of those had no ammunition for them.  Here is the breakdown.

    This week, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) illegally released classified testimony given by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson to the Senate Judiciary Committee. At first, she blamed “a bad head cold” for this lapse in judgment. Later, she alleged “I just got pressured.” Now she disavows her earlier lame excuses, asserting that “I never said I was pressured” and speculates that a reporter “misunderstood my complaint about the severe sinus pressure I was experiencing with the cold.” The reporter in question, BuzzFeed’s Emma Loop, says she has heard a recording of the Senator alluding to getting pressured and wanted to know...

    Donald Trump has taken a beating from the left wing media for his remarks about Haiti. He touched the third rail of politics- he told the truth. What you may have not taken note of is that while the media pounds Trump for what he said, not one of them has tried to disprove his comments. We need not argue this with words. Videos will tell the tale https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rgwoL1f9fQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dadt4IWoTcIAnd this one, which for some reason I cannot get to embed, in which a young woman teaches a lesson about Haiti. In this video, she talks about kidnapping. And in particular,...
  • Will universal daycare come to Ontario?

    Universal daycare may become one of the more costly side effects of the government’s large increase in the minimum wage. As always, it will be the taxpayers who get it in the end Economics is not an exact science. This is why President Harry Truman asked for a one-armed economist because he was tired of being told “on the one hand…, but on the other hand…” But it is basic Economics 101 that if a business’s costs increase, that business will end up raising its prices. On Jan. 1, 2018, Ontario’s minimum wage increased from $11.60 an hour to $14...

    California's Economic Forecast is Dismal Despite so-called “progressives” promising their policies will create a Soviet-style worker’s paradise, California’s leftist Democrats have turned the once Golden State into a sh*thole through decades of leftist policies penalizing and demonizing employers, businesses, property owners, innovators, entrepreneurs—and really, anyone who wants to work hard and get ahead. These hard working people are responding by fleeing liberal California for conservative red states. The perception across America is that California is the state people are leaving. And that perception is accurate.

    Big news that California is the poverty leader? Huh. I make $32/hr, I'm insured, I can hardly get into my mailbox for the scads of junk mail from the California branch of Obamacare. I've told them on the phone, "I'm working, I have private health insurance, I don't want it." They have kept up calling and sending me mail, for years. I throw their junk mail into the same commode-hole as the feke from AARP. AARP, an insurance black hole masquerading as a support group for elderly people--I'm 62--sends me, like all of you, scads of junk mail, complete with...

    Unsealed documents confirm that the shooting in Las Vegas that took place on October 1, 2017 may have involved much more than just the "lone wolf" shooter we were told about, as many of us suspected. In fact, one of the prime suspects is the very woman that the FBI and police deemed to be "cleared" just hours after the shooting though she was alleged to have been out of the country.  By the way, we know that Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, Mari Lou Danley, regularly helped Paddock load magazines.  Hr “fingerprints” may also be on some of the ammunition and shell casings...

    I will attempt to interpret Dr. King’s legendary speech. I am not an Ivy League scholar. I am not an African Studies laureate. I am not a famous historian. I am just a black conservative who just may see things a bit differently than liberals would allow if they could stop me. There are certain phrases in the “I Have A Dream” speech that could make the argument that Dr. King was conservative. So I won't be accused of taking something out of context, I examined the entire speech….

    The 60 Plus Association released a new ad this week as part of their seven-figure ad campaign to blast the dreaded Health Insurance Tax (HIT), a $21 billion tax that is expected to increase premium costs. The tax went into effect Jan. 1. Although Republicans were able to repeal the Obamacare individual mandate in the latest tax reform package, there are still vestiges of the big government healthcare legislation that remain. Republicans still have a big job ahead of them in the healthcare fight. Among the top priorities are the tax issues such as the medical device tax and health...
  • Unsealed Search Warrant Application Shows Stephen Paddock May Have Been An Arms Dealer

    01/15/2018 4:45:29 AM PST · by gaggs · 29 replies
    People have been asking since day 1 how on earth Stephen Paddock made his money. The "Professional Gambling" explanation obviously makes no sense. Guess we know the real answer now? Page 7, in the Search Warrant, seems like the smoking gun. Why hasn't the FBI or Las Vegas Police Department mentioned this? It describes an email exchange that could be read as Paddock selling arms to someone. It could also be read as him telling a buddy that there's a lot of firing ranges in Las Vegas with automatic weapons and/or bump stocks to try. The FBI seems to think...

    There is no reason to shirk from confronting the Marxists who infest our institutions and culture. On the contrary, since they despise the foundations of our Declaration and Constitution, they are typically ignorant of them. Few people study what they regard as loathsome. A year before the “shot heard ‘round the world,” Josiah Quincy Jr. bequeathed certain books to his son: When he shall arrive to the age of fifteen years, I give to my son, Algernon Sidney’s works, - John Locke’s works, - Lord Bacon’s works, - Gordon’s Tacitus, - and Cato’s Letters. May the spirit of liberty rest...
