  • Trump calls Tillerson “Dumb as a Rock”

    Absence does not make the heart grow fonder when it comes to President Trump and his first secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. Nine months after Trump summarily dismissed his top diplomat by tweet, he followed it up with another tweet in which he branded Tillerson “dumb as a rock” and “lazy as hell.” The biting words came after Tillerson, in an appearance at a charity event in Houston, said their relationship soured over Trump’s repeated demands that Tillerson do things that were illegal. “So often, the president would say, ‘Here’s what I want you to do, and here’s how I...

    A Southwest Side David vs. Goliath story. The David is David Krupa, 19, a freshman at DePaul University who drives a forklift. He’s not a political powerhouse. He’s just a conservative Southwest Side teenager studying political science and economics who got it in his head to run for alderman in a race that pits him against the most powerful ward organization in Chicago. The Goliath is the 13th Ward Democratic Organization run by House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, aka Boss Madigan, the most powerful politician in the state. Boss Madigan has long hand-picked his aldermen. He likes them loyal and...

    In the human heart, the Baby in the Crèche who is the forever wondrous King of Kings, remains eternal True life is not only often stranger than fiction, it’s once in awhile, also more beautiful than anything turned out in fiction. The following is a true story about how a friend in Decatur, Illinois, without even being aware of it, brought back to me the life and times of the late great Daniel T. Zanoza, originator of the now 11-year-old Springfield Nativity Scene—once the only such display to ever stand in any state capitol building in any state across the...

    Fox News ^ | 11-28-2018 | Louis Casiano
    Brenda Snipes, the elections supervisor for Broward County, Fla., who resigned after coming under scrutiny for the way her office handled vote counting during the Nov. 6 election, will receive nearly $130,000 in annual pensions once she leaves office in January, according to reports. Snipes, 75, already receives a pension of more than $58,000 from her time as an educator and is poised to collect another $71,000 for 15 years as an elected official, the Sun-Sentinel reported. "Although I have enjoyed this work tremendously over these many election cycles, both large and small, I am ready to pass the torch,"...

    American Thinker.com ^ | November 25, 2018 | David Lanza
    The United States has just endured the most expensive midterm elections in history. Most of us are tired of campaign commercials and are glad that they no longer run on television. But we fool ourselves if we think the commercials are really over or that the campaigning is limited to the two months leading up to election day. The commercials continue, if only in different forms. Political commercials have, somehow, taken over nearly every facet of our lives and every activity we experience. This infestation has happened so gradually that we barely notice how thorough the campaigning has become. We...
  • Did 1968 win the cultural war?

    Jewish World Review ^ | 22 Nov. 2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Did 1968 win the cultural war? Fifty years ago this year, the '60s revolution sought to overturn U.S. customs, traditions, ideology and politics. The '60s radicals eventually grew older, cut their hair and joined the establishment. Most thought their revolution had fizzled out in the early 1970s without much effect, as Americans returned to "normal." But maybe the '60s, not the silent majority, won out after all. The world a half-century later looks a lot more like 1968 and what followed than what preceded it. Most of the political and cultural agenda from that turbulent period -- both the advances...

    Meanwhile, Merz described himself as “upper middle class” yet he earns 1 million euros a year and has two private jets – not one. The rumor is Goldman Sachs is in its Crash & Burn mode for paying bribes and Blackrock will replace it as the most powerful financial institution in the world.
  • Trump’s Decision on Saudi Arabia and the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi

    The Olive Branch Report ^ | 11/21/2018 | S. Noble
    President Trump is not going to severely punish Saudi Arabia as he promised he would if the CIA decided he was responsible for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi. The CIA does believe he is responsible. While it is sad that Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered and no one deserves such a terrible death, is it our affair? The media says it is. They think they run the government. The media does run the Democrat Party. Khashoggi was an occasional op-ed writer for The Washington Post but, other than that, he was a Saudi and a Muslim Brotherhood activist. The Saudis...

    I realize the Democrats took over the House, which is not new news. But I'm tired of hearing Nancy Pelosi and other liberals in Congress say that now we need to start working together. Now we need bipartisanship. Really? Where have they been for the last umpteen years? Since at least 2016, I haven't noticed the Democrats clamoring for compromise and cooperation in Washington or on CNN. Suddenly Nancy Pelosi wants to practice bipartisanship? Yeah, right. I agree with President Trump. Now that Democrats are in charge of the House and looking under every bed for excuses to impeach Donald...

    Bloody Shovel ^ | 14 November, 2018 | Spandrell
    Of course liberal politics kept being a mess. No cohesion in a ruling class which has no good incentive to stick to each other. But of course the incentive is still out there. A cohesive ruling class can monopolize power and extract rents from the whole society forever. The ghost of Lenin is always there. And so the arrow of history kept bending in Lenin’s direction. The West started to build up a Leninist power structure. Not overtly, not as a conscious plan. It just worked that way because the incentives were out there for everyone to see, and so...

    PRLOG ^ | November 13, 2018 | William C. Stewart
    Teleios Research recently surveyed adolescents and millennials regarding opinions about the Israel-Palestine conflict. The survey was promoted on the Christian Instagram accounts, Instapray and Godsholyscriptures as well as a secular site, Mindsetofgreatness. Of the 146 participants the majority were: male (52%), <35 years old (74%), from the United States (34%), and evangelical (58%). Politically, evangelical Christians believe Israel is a democracy and all groups are treated fairly (28%); whereas non-evangelicals perceive Palestinians living in Israel are repressed (28%; P=0.002). Evangelicals generally support Israel regarding political and human rights issues (74%) compared to non-evangelicals (46%); while non-evangelicals support the Palestinian Authority...
