2 old feminist hags (for lack of a better term) bashed women who wouldn't vote for hillary.


Gloria steinem accused young women of voting for bernie "just for the boys" and madeleine albright said that there's a special place in hell for women who don't support hillary. Spoken by peaceful, loving, tolerant liberals.

Not only that, but hillary defended their comments! You know what those 3 are? There's a certain c-word that describes them.... chumps. :O)


So you have liberals who call black republicans "uncle toms" and "house n-words" but i guess they do the same to republican women. Then again, intimidation and guilt-tripping people into voting for them is the left's game.

If you live long enough, every fact you stored about the world will become wrong. A most relevant case in point is the facts about the "democratic socialist" wonder-states of Scandenavia.

Who here has seen the 2015 Forbes list of most business-friendly countries?

The days of Hong Kong and Singapore on top are sadly gone, and today Denmark tops the list. Good old New Zealand holds its traditional spot among the top tier, but then Norway is third, Sweden at five, Finland (a fairly gun-friendly place, by-the-way) at six, and the Netherlands at nine.

I don't know the Forbes methodology, and I can guess their definition of "business-friendly" might not completely mesh with a good conception of free-market capitalism, but it is easy to find plenty of anecdotes about northern Europe roaring back toward capitalism, and as the famous economist said, the plural of anecdote is data.

This is important stuff. The stated ideal of the American progressive movement is the system that they believe is working in the Scandenavian countries. They are right that these countries are working and thriving, but the facts they know about the region's economic system are now decades out of date. I am happy to report that Sweden even refused a bailout of Saab at a time when America established a social safety net for corporations.

I do hope our world facts soon become up-to-date. I'd love to hear a different kind of talk about embracing the Swedish model.

So Obama wanted to bypass Congress (imagine that) in order to make it harder to acquire guns.


Basically, gun dealers need a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and must conduct background checks on potential buyers. These FFLs take several months to process. What obama's trying to do is make the definition of a gun dealer more broad and vague (though the interpretation should be the court's job, not obama's) to where that means even selling one or two firearms every now and then means you'll be classified as a firearms dealer (and must get a FFL and conduct a background check). Not following those rules can get them prosecuted.


Just another abuse of executive power by the President.... regardless of party, this kind of sidestepping around congress is not ok.

On New Year's Eve, in a cologne train station and outside the iconic cologne cathedral, 1000 "arab and north african men" (according to the city's police chief) robbed, sexually assaulted and/or raped 90 different women in one night, one of those being right next to the cathedral. There were additional attacks in the st. Pauli area of hamburg as well as stuttgart. Almost all of them in cologne were young men who spoke no english or german.


I'm afraid this is only the beginning of the consequences of letting 1.2 million of these refugees into europe last year alone.

1. Why aren't these refugees (mostly muslim) going to other muslim middle eastern countries?

2. Why is it that when some of those middle eastern countries closed their borders to them no one batted an eye, but when poland, hungary and croatia did the same everyone lost their minds?


Then again, those questions pretty much answer themselves.

I originally posted the following in another community in response who believes that American Democracy merely exists on paper. I really like what came out of me in this post, and I have decided to post it here.

People seem to think that in an ideal democratic society, everyone just sits around all day and sucks in the nectar of liberty. This is not so. Democracy is, and always has been a debate -- sometimes a violent debate.
In the United States, sometimes big business has had all the power, for instance in the Gilded age that lasted between 1865-1920's, and that age's more modern version characterized by things like the Supreme Court's <i>Citizens United</i> decision.  Sometimes a more populist form of government took charge in the Progressive era, started by Theodore Roosevelt, or in the era of the New Deal, Initiated by his cousin Franklin. Other democratic reforms (in the sense of those citizens other than the rich), occurred under Lyndon Johnson, in the form the the Great Society. Under Johnson, the Civil Rights laws were passed, and Jim Crow was outlawed.
There have been people who assisted democracy in finding it's way. People like Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and at a later date, people like Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln. The Emancipation Proclamation was more than "just on paper", was it not?
No doubt, in your post, you are referring to the modern status of US politics. Right now, the rich are ruling things. But there are movements afoot that are re-asserting the rights of the 99%, for instance Occupy Wall Street,  the populism of the Tea Party and of the supporters of people like Bernie Sanders. Although I have many, many objections to the Tea Party and to the followers of Donald Trump, I am also aware that they are a response to the elitism that has taken control of the US. However, I am sure that eventually, the primitive form of populism that exists in the US will iron itself out, and will manifest in rational changes to our society.
One final point. I live in Brooklyn, NY. In my neighborhood there is a great deal of cultural diversity. We have Hassidic Jews, Middle Easterners, people from the former Soviet Union, Carribeans, and those of us of Western European descent. Despite the ravings of Trump and his followers, in my neighborhood, all of these cultural types get along just find. We respect each others customs, and believe that each culture has a right to see the world as it does. That is democracy in the US. It is why people from all over the world want to come here: they know that ultimately they will be given a fair shake -- at least they will receive fairer treatment than they would almost anywhere else in the world. And that is proof that democracy does not exist only on paper.

Well, guys, we Americans pressured out one speaker, and now I'm seeing rumbles about Speaker Ryan, who, I remind everyone, stated in public that he didn't want the job in the first place.

I've read little beyone headlines about the bill that Drudge claims is basically a Democrat bill, but if it is so bad, than, it once again makes sense to search the world for a better House Speaker, and I can't help but notice that, since my last post on Australia's Tony Abbott, that Stephen Harper is no longer leading our northern neighbors. Oh, he's still an MP, but no longer PM, so we do have a promotion to offer him, if our own grassroots were interested.

Like Abbott, he did govern over a nation more economically free than our own, and, again like Abbott, governed more conservatively than we American are used to. So, he could be our man.

I'm disenchanted with our domestic options enough that I'd like to draft both of them.

Tip of the hat to melvin_udall and justgoto for finding this.

Anyway, why is that the title and who am i referring to? Loretta Lynch said that this shooting is a "wonderful opportunity" to make drastic changes. Sound familiar to rahm emanuel's "never let a good crisis go to waste"? The left are using these tragedies to demonize the NRA and anyone they disagree with, every... single... time.


Here is the quote:

We’re at the point where these issues have come together really like never before in law enforcement thought and in our nation’s history and it gives us a wonderful opportunity and a wonderful moment to really make significant change,” said Lynch.


Oh yeah, then there's this:

After touting the numbers of "investigations into acts of anti-Muslim hatred" and "bigoted actions" against Muslims launched by her DOJ, Lynch suggested the Constitution does not protect "actions predicated on violent talk" and pledged to prosecute those responsible for such actions. 



Will this "violent talk" includes the BLM movement, oh wait, they largely disobey the law so i guess not. Liberal Privilege allows liberals and minorities to say what they want without consequence. When's the last time they lost their job over something they said?



So obama wants to let in all these refugees without checking who they are first, wants to arrest anyone who says anything bad about islam (you know that's going to happen given that obama and lynch stand with muslims), refuses to do anything about "sanctuary cities", refuses to call islamic terrorism terrorism, and WE are the problem, not the muslim bigots who largely refuse to assimilate and hate non-muslims? We've really gone to hell in a handbasket!

What happened near Estade de Paris tonight should make our blood boil (apart from the mob mentality in Missouri).

Islamic terrorists killed and took hostages and the death toll's rising.

Perhaps Europe needs to close their borders and send the thousands and thousands of "refugees" back ASAP but one thing's for sure, this was an Islamic attack.


Tonight we are all French. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.


Update: Imagine that, leftists like Bill Maher are already blaming the victims for "provoking" the attack. They would defend Islam to the bitter end. Now you know who's selling out Europe for the sake of "diversity"...at the expense of those already living there.

As conservatives, we always say less government.


The real question we must ask each other is what needs to be regulated and what doesn't? Just taking one of the main conservative and libertarian viewpoints a step further.

..... then why do they only show up when a white cop does it (and they usually kill thugs with rather long criminal records who are no angels, such as trayvon and michael brown but don't let facts get in the way of the emotion-driven left)? Granted, cops aren't perfect as nobody is, but would you rather have them around or thugs?

If black lives mattered to BLM, why do they ignore the high number of black-on-black crimes in their cities like new york, chicago, st. Louis, memphis, oakland, and baltimore among others?

If BLM is soooo peaceful, why were they chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" and "what do we want, dead cops! When? Now!"

The answer is simple: obama, sharpton,jackson, holder, de blasio et al are anti-cop. Once again obama proved this by defending the BLM while always criticizing police almost right from the start.


Yes, BLM promotes violence, like member Joseph thomas Johnson-shanks who killed kentucky state trooper Joseph cameron ponder after getting caught driving with an expired license.


Yes, i believe all lives matter.... but the BLM movement doesn't believe so.


BLM was all started by the lie of hands up, don't shoot and it'll take years to undo the damage.

So, last week, the Liberal Party- the center-right coalition in Australia- voted to sack their prime minister, who at the time was probably the most conservative head-of-state in the Anglosphere.

I'm not an Australian, and didn't follow Australian politics especially closely, but Mr Abbott seems to be the sort American conservatives can appreciate. His words and deeds on immigration would make UKIP proud. He was a lion against the carbon tax and cap-and-trade. He is a proud conservative Catholic in a country not terribly religious. He saught to liberalize the economy in a country that already has the USA licked in the 'economic freedom' rankings.

If it wasn't for firearms, I'd say he was perfect for a leadership position in American politics. But even with that blemish, I've got to wonder if American conservatives would perfer him to their current House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader. Neither position, I understand, requires American citizenship, nor election to the house or senate.

I've looked beyond American shores ever since I heard Mark Levin rally for Governor Scott Walker to take the house speakership. I thought, if we could look beyond the house, we could also look beyond America for that special talent. We could get a capable former head-of-state. Lee Kuan Yew and Margaret Thatcher are dead. Stephen Harper will lead Canada for some time still. What about Abbott?

So what did you all make of it? I know, nothing much comes of these debates at this point in time, but it's still good to discuss tonight's debate.

Any candidates stand out to you? Anything they said? If the primary was today, who would you vote for? It's ok if you don't know the answers to those questions, but it gets you thinking a little bit.

So multiple times i've heard socialists say jesus was a socialist. As you may have heard, kasich (i know, he's a republican candidate) recently quoted matthew 25 "for i was hungry and you fed me, for i was sick and in prison and you took care of me", etc.)

What he doesn't understand is that there's a difference between charity and socialism. Last time i checked, the salvation army doesn't put a gun to your face in order for you to put that change in the bucket and socialists and communists don't say, "oh, you can give most of your things to us if you want to, whenever you have a chance".


So to those that say jesus was a socialist, charity is voluntary and socialism is forced redistribution. The socialists' doublethink here is saying jesus was one of them while the majority of them are atheists. Basically, they're saying a God they don't even believe in in the first place is one of them.

I figured i'd let you all know there's a new group i started called against_pc.

I'm pretty lax on the rules there for now but IT DOES NOT MEAN WE STOP POSTING ON THIS GROUP. I figured you guys would like the against_pc group since it's all about ranting about political correctness and how it's gone mad. Even some liberals have seen the light about pc but not enough unfortunately.

Anyway, i was just letting you guys know about the group if any of you are interested. :)

First of all, my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the church shooting in south carolina.

Anyway, the left is already calling it a hate crime (it's only been hours) assuming a white man did it. However, some think the suspect may not be white. They're trying to pull a trayvon here (like when they called zimmerman white when he was biracial).

https://www.yahoo.com/news/police-release-images-gunman-black-south-carolina-church-101910656.html


Anytime there's a white-on-black crime, the races are in the headline. Is it when it's the other way around or any other race? No. Am i saying one's worse than the other? No!


Point is, the left are dangerously obsessed with race, especially since obama became president. They have divided this country in a way not seen since the civil war. Now cops' lives are destroyed for doing their job (and a few are even killed), the rioters are being bailed out of prison so they can loot again, and this administration has shown nothing but disdain for our law enforcement officers and cherry-pick which laws to follow. They have made racism a one-way street and this is their idea of "progress".



If you remember in 2009, eric holder wanted new hate crime legislation that would NOT protect whites or christian ministers based on "historical oppression".


Source:

http://patriotupdate.com/articles/hate-crimes-legislation-racial-identity-politics-institutional-racism-left/

In other words, another ploy to make whites and christians feel guilty over things they shouldn't feel guilty over as they had nothing to do with it (like slavery).



The way the democrats divided this great nation makes my blood boil. I hope al sharpton et al goes to jail for the rest of his worthless life.


When will this madness end?

So we already know Hillary is a pathological liar and has repeatedly covered up things like Benghazi, her horrible foreign policy, secret emails and charities (just to name a few). Of course, the mainstream media will obsess with her and cover for her 24/7, with her even going as far as not talking to reporters (except the hand-picked ones that would literally kiss her behind if she told them to).

It's quite something when hillary rarely has press conferences (no doubt as to why) and now she's starting to boot some of them from them.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/06/16/reporters-covering-hillary-clinton-have-some-sharp-words-for-her-campaign-after-unacceptable-move/



What else is she hiding? Is her campaign one tough question away from falling apart? What will dead broke Hillary do next? This is one of the main reasons why the accomplished former secretary of state (sarcasm by the way) should never be president. One AA President was bad enough. A second one aka Hillary? God help us all. I hope the Republicans field a candidate that has the guts to stand up to her!

Snagged from melvin_udall

$585,719 study to combat violent extremism

    The Department of Justice is concentrating on “far-right” groups in a new study of social media usage aimed at combatting violent extremism.

    The Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) awarded Michigan State University $585,719 for the study, which was praised by Eric Holder, the former attorney general, earlier this year.

    “There is currently limited knowledge of the role of technology and computer mediated communications (CMCs), such as Facebook and Twitter, in the dissemination of messages that promote extremist agendas and radicalize individuals to violence,” according to the NIJ grant. “The proposed study will address this gap through a series of qualitative and quantitative analyses of posts from various forms of CMC used by members of both the far-right and Islamic extremist movements.”

    The study draws more upon right-wing forums than upon the corners of the web inhabited by Islamist extremists.

    “We will collect posts made in four active forums used by members of the far-right and three from the Islamic Extremist community, as well as posts made in Facebook, LiveJournal, Twitter, YouTube, and Pastebin accounts used by members of each movement,” the grant said.


I have seen people on LJ calling for the death of US citizens, but they were always democrats. What will they come up with next?

While we conservatives know not to buy anything from obvious liberal establishments like starbucks and chrysler, what about pac-sun and a tattoo parlor in oklahoma? Here's why:

Pac-sun sold shirts with upside-down flags on them over memorial day weekend. Obviously it wasn't because they were in distress. At least they removed them.


Norman Tattoo decided to not serve cops because they, like most liberals, have a chip on their shoulder. The owner claimed bring violence and intimidation wherever they go. Seriously? So after complaining about gays not being served, they do the same to the police? The left's hypocrisy knows no bounds!


Anyway, here are the links to both stories:

Hurray! It is election season! The time of year where political ads spam our televisions, phone lines, and mail boxes. At least this cycle it is only Congressional races we have to worry about. Oh, I forgot, Hillary Clinton started her 2016 campaign last month.

On that note, let's talk about a very specific election race in Louisiana. The race for Mary Landrieu's Senate seat. As you can infer from my title, it is my contention that Mary Landrieu will retain her Senate seat after the 2014 midterm elections. Before I give you my analysis on why, we need to look at some background points..

1. The Scheme

The first point deals with the Republican Party's scheme. According to Bloomberg News last month, in order to gain control of both branches of Congress the Republican party must win 6 Senate seats. As a result, there are a list of 6 targeted seats currently held by Democrats. Mary Landrieu's seat is at the forefront of this list because she is the only Democratic Senator from the Deep South (Texas to South Carolina and Florida to Tennessee). The Republican Party wants to evict Senator Landrieu from her seat to not only gain one step closer to a majority but also to monopolize the Deep South.

2. The Players

Now let's look at the candidates in this Senate race. First of all, there is Mary Landrieu, who is the incumbent. According to TV ads run by Republican super PAC's (Political Action Committees), she has voted in accordance with President Obama 97% of the time. Secondly, there is Bill Cassidy the challenger. He is officially endorsed by the Republican party both symbolically and economically. He is recently coming off of a term in the House of Representatives. But these are not the only two candidates, Robert Maness is the Dark Horse (not to be confused with Katy Perry's hit single), or otherwise known as the spoiler candidate. He is a retired Air Force colonel, according to New Orleans' newspaper the Times-Picayune. Additionally, he is endorsed by the Tea Party, the well-known branch of the Republican ideology. His presence complicates the dynamic of this election.

3. The Polls

The Huffington Post conducted polls two weeks ago and found that Cassidy had 46% of the vote, Landrieu 43%, and Maness 11%. What this means is that none of the candidates have a majority of the votes, which is needed for an outright victory. But if Cassidy is leading why will Landrieu win. There is one reason.

VOTE SPLITTING

This is when two candidates split their party's votes causing the opposing candidate to win. Learn MoreCollapse )

There are couple of reasons this will happen.

1. Louisiana's Political Dynamic

Although not everyone in Louisiana is a gun-toting redneck the political dynamic is geared towards ultra-conservativism (with the exception of New Orleans). Rob Maness appeals to this demographic because he is a Tea Partier. As a result, votes will be drawn away from Bill Cassidy.

2. Unified Democratic Ticket

Former Louisiana Governor Edwards (D) was planning on contesting for the seat but he backed out and threw his support behind Landrieu. This means that all Democratic voters will most likely vote for Landrieu giving here the unanimous Democratic backing.

3. Negative Campaigning

If you live in Louisiana then you are aware of all the ads run by Landrieu and Cassidy against each other. They have thrown every conceivable punch in a 30 second segment. But Rob Maness has not been attacked in any way only supported by his own commercials. This means Republian voters are left with an untainted view of Maness and a convoluted view of Cassidy. This will only increase the effects of vote splitting.

As we can see Landrieu has all of the variables in place for her victory. The only solution to the Republican's vote splitting problem is if (1) Maness drops out, which is highly unlikely or (2) a run-off occurs between Cassidy and Landrieu. In that run-off, Tea Party voters would most definitely favor Cassidy giving him the victory. However, Landrieu has enormous resources and is primed for her 4th senate term.

It is almost impossible to predict political outcomes, so in this case I hope I am wrong.

How about investigating all these riots or Al Sharpton's tax evasion? Oh, that's right, the liberals gave them the ok to loot and riot because holder believes hate crimes are a one-way street, the black community's problems are because of "whitey", and the gentle giants who died had their hands up and were running away. Lies lies and damned lies. Not only that, but whenever the media reports these things, they always say "WHITE cop shoots BLACK kid/man" but never when it's the other way around. The left has blood on their hands for enabling thugs to kill several cops. Blue lives matter too. The point is, i don't care about race even if you're purple, but those that live like thugs die like thugs. Harsh but true.



I know, what i said is common knowledge among conservatives but when you're a conservative who lives in ultra blue union land, lives and goes to school with almost all liberals and barely knows any fellow conservatives, and when you debate these liberals they constantly blabber over you to where they won't let you talk, it's about time i can voice my opinion after years of not being able to!


What's been happening since ferguson is proof that this administration single-handedly set race relations back 50 years.

Today is marx's birthday. With this i want to take the time to acknowledge the many sucesses of communism like:



Hold up.... what? It never worked? Millions were killed and they mostly got away with it, they have no freedom whatsoever, and they're equally in poverty and misery? You mean to tell me the leaders never miss a meal while the populace starves? Wait...most of hollywood embraces it while making millions because of the same system they bash?


Well there you have folks, that's communism for you!



On one last note: if jesus really was a socialist, then why do most socialists reject him?

Hi,

In my tradition of submitting a candidate for drafting efforts, I'd like to break my hiatus from posting on political matters to both submit a "Dark Horse" for office of President of the United States.

In a period where we're already seeing Dr Ben Carson and, perhaps seriously this time, Donald Trump, we're already seeing folks with only private sector experience rallying support. Dr Carson and especially Carly Fiorina are interesting people, but I can think of some people with more relevent experience than these.

My nominee is an admittingly very controversal figure. Already, without even entering politics, he's condemned in some circles as a war criminal and mercenary. He has international business deals with highly suspect countries, his loyalty has been questioned, and he currently doesn't even live in the United States.

And yet he has more successful experience in foreign affairs, military conflicts, and business than practically anyone on the planet. He graduated from Hillsdale College and the US Naval Acedemy. He served as a Navy SEAL before forming a firm called Blackwater to provide proper training grounds to America's combat shooters. As years passed, this firm evolved into a private military company out of necessity.

Blackwater made mistakes along the way, but also solved problems no one else in the multi-nation coalition could solve. Not only was the company founder skilled at solving issues confronted on battlefields, he also showed skill defending his own reputation in interviews.

So I am submitting for your consideration Erik Prince for President.
