THE REAL 2016 ELECTION: The Bipartisan Political-Media Establishment vs. the American People

By Lawrence Sellin

The 2016 election is not a contest between the Democrat and Republican ideologies, nor is it a choice among various approaches to address the nation's problems, but something far more fundamental.

It is a battle between the entrenched power of the bipartisan political-media establishment versus the rights and liberties of the American people.

University of Chicago Surrenders to Jihad

By Karl Denninger

And yet again UofC shows why you should shred any resume you get from any of their grads.

The University of Chicago announced Sunday that all classes and other activities planned for Monday on its Hyde Park campus will be canceled after FBI counterterrorism officials informed the university of a gun violence threat to the campus.

University President Robert Zimmer sent an email to students and staff warning them of a threat posted online by an unknown individual, which specifically mentioned "the campus quad" at 10 a.m. Monday.

President Zimmer is a coward.

Powerful NY Democrat Gets Gold Watch Plus 130 Years in Prison, But Mostly 130 Years in Prison

By Rusty Weiss

Following a month-long criminal trial, and 10 months after his arrest on multiple corruption charges, former Assembly Speaker and one of the famed ‘three men in a room’ controlling New York politics, Sheldon Silver, has been found guilty on all seven counts involving corruption schemes that netted him $4 million in legal fees.

Prior to his arrest, Silver was widely considered the most powerful Democrat in the State Legislature.

QOTD: "[Former Rep. Pete] Hoekstra argued that the U.S. has lost Libya and northern Africa, which has fueled the crisis in Syria and Iraq... “We’ve dug a hole deeper rather than making progress,” he said.

Hoekstra criticized President Obama for believing the “power of his personality” would bring peace to the Middle East.

“This president, as he did in Egypt, as he’s done in Iran, as he’s done in Syria, has decided that in America’s best interest he believes he can manage, work with, but most importantly he believed that because of the power of his personality the radical jihadist movement would fundamentally change their view of America and change their behavior,” he said [citing] a quote from Obama in November 2007 during his first run for president.

“I truly believe that the day I’m inaugurated, not only the country looks at itself differently, but the world looks at America differently,” Obama said at the time. “If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian, but I also understand their point of view.”" --Nicholas Ballasy

INTERESTING: A Carly Fiorina Story from the Harvard Business Review

Happened to be perusing an article in HBR on how companies engage employees (you can probably guess the punchline: there is no single formula for success) and I spotted this interesting tale regarding GOP establishment favorite Carly Fiorina:

It takes years to build a strong purpose- and values-driven high commitment, high performance culture. It cannot be done with a simple training program. Every policy and practice has to be evaluated in the context of espoused purpose and values. Culture is, however, very fragile. A few decisions and behaviors by top management or leaders of key businesses or operating units can undermine decades of culture building.

Consider what happened to HP...

Waco Biker Injustice

By Candy Chand

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." --Martin Luther King

It's been almost six months, and the Waco indictments are just rolling in. So much for swift justice. Or the freedom to assemble.

But do American's really care about the 1st and 6th Amendments, when those fought-and-died-for rights pertain to bikers?

On May 17, 2015, numerous motorcycle groups met in Waco, Texas for a Confederation of Club's joint meeting. Scheduled at a Twin Peaks restaurant, they set out to discuss laws, mutual rules, and common ground. It would be hard to anticipate that lunch with fellow bikers (which included a mix of 1 percenter outlaw, U.S. Veteran and Christian groups) would turn into bloody mayhem.

Only the Free Market, not Forced Wealth Redistribution, Eradicates Poverty and Builds Wealth

By Richard Larsen

America was was intended to be a “shining city on a hill” of freedom, individual liberty, and unlimited opportunity. She was never intended to be a socialist state. Socialistic egalitarianism is strikingly antithetical to the American paradigm.

Founded in individual liberty, America has always been the one nation under heaven where equality of opportunity has taken precedence over equality of outcome. The whole concept of the “American Dream” is based on the individual freedom to become, to achieve, to build, sell, and succeed. This requires individual freedom (which is diminished proportionate to expanded governmental power), and a free market economy (not centralized planning, or government control over the means of production). Consequently, socialism in any of its iterations (communism, national socialism, fascism, and democratic-socialism) is philosophically, morally, and pragmatically, contrary to the principles upon which the republic was founded. Consequently, it is deductively anti-American.

THOUGHTFUL: Saudi King Gives Obama Replica of Mecca Clock Tower Built by the Bin Laden Group

The Saudis have some thoughts on what to get that hard-to-shop for world leader.

How about a "48-inch gold-plated brass replica of the Makkah Clock Tower on marble base”. With falling oil prices, the Saudis were too cheap to make it solid gold.

QOTD: "When asked a few years ago to pick which department in Washington most deserved to be eliminated, I chose the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

And HUD unquestionably is a cesspool of waste, so it certainly should be shuttered.

But the more I read about the bizarre handouts and subsidies showered on big agribusiness producers by the Department of Agriculture, the more I think there’s a very compelling argument that it should be at top of my list.

Indeed, these giveaways are so disgusting and corrupt that not only should the department be abolished, but the headquarters should be razed and then the ground should be covered by a foot of salt to make sure nothing ever springs back to life." --Dan Mitchell

OH, MY: Former Ambassador says Obama brought "radical Muslim values into the White House"

UPDATE: Everyone involved is now denying Oren's statements. Unexpectedly.

The article, brought to our attention by the indefatigable Dan from New York, has already been "deleted", but I grabbed a copy before it disappeared permanently into the bit-bucket. My guess is that someone in the halls of power asked that it be, eh, squelched.

Former Israeli Ambassador to the US MK Michael Oren (Kulanu), a member of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, released a particularly strong accusation against US President Barack Obama on Saturday.

BLOCKED: Facebook Censors Pages Critical of Bernie Sanders

By Renee Nal

Author and speaker Trevor Loudon revealed Sanders’ radical ties in a short film he released Wednesday in anticipation of his upcoming political documentary The Enemies Within which seeks to expose the anti-American radicals in the federal government.

After several prominent Facebook pages posted the article, the link was blocked at numerous pages (See here and here for just two examples) and Facebook “likes” on the actual article became “stuck” at 572.

It is pure speculation at this point as to why Facebook blocked the article. At the time of this writing, Facebook has not replied to requests for clarification.

Return of the .22 Ammo Drought?

By Dean Weingarten

About two months ago, for two weeks in early October, the local WalMart near to my daughter’s place in North Dallas had .22 Federal Champion ammunition available for less than five cents per round. It was in 50-round boxes, at $2.47 per box, with a limit of three boxes per customer. I checked again, on November 24th . . .

The shelves were once again empty of inexpensive .22 rimfire. There were a few boxes of CCI .22 LR shotshells at $7.87 per box. That is about 39.2 cents per round. You can easily find it for that price on the Internet. Some places are carrying it as low as 28.5 cents per round, in the 20 round box. The price for CCI .22 LR shotshells is the same in that WalMart as it was in early October.

QOTD: "I sometimes sit in utter astonishment, just thunderstruck that I am living through the administration of the worst President in American history. James Buchanan will be ranked above Obama in 20 years, if the nation survives him.

Obama doesn’t side with law enforcement, he sides with criminals like Travon Martin and Mike Brown and #BlackLivesMatter. Obama doesn’t side with Israel, he sides with Iran. Obama doesn’t support our veterans, he allows the VA to neglect them, and is perfectly OK with giant bonuses being paid to the administrators and bureaucrats overseeing that neglect. His IRS attacks conservatives, his Justice Department engages in illegal gunrunning, his EPA causes catastrophic environmental disasters, and no one ever gets fired, or even demoted. Obama attacks and disparages Christians and conservatives and law-abiding gun owners as a matter of course.

Obama spews nonsense about global warming being the greatest threat we face, and then moves to allow thousands of unvetted Muslim refugees into our country, when ISIS has stated publicly that their strategy to get terrorists into Western nations is to blend in with refugees. He views his fellow citizens as his enemies, moreso than savages shooting up cafe’s in Paris and chopping off peoples’ heads." --Taxicab Depressions

COURAGE IN A BOTTLE: The Jihadist's Drug

By Michaela Witton

Dubbed the “jihadist’s drug,” Captagon is rapidly flooding the Middle East and is said to be fueling the bloody conflict in Syria. French media recently reported that the Paris attackers may have taken the drug.

Last weekend, Turkish anti-narcotics police seized 11 million Captagon pills in a haul that weighed almost two tonnes. It was set to ship to Gulf countries. Widely banned since the mid-eighties, the pills provide a cheap and long-lasting high and are highly addictive. They also have the potential to cause psychosis and brain damage.

The production of the drug, which keeps fighters awake over long periods of time, is said to be providing income for all factions involved in the Syrian war.

LIKE THE PILGRIMS, IF THE PILGRIMS HAD SUICIDE BELTS: Obama Threatens States Refusing to Take ISIS-Supporting Syrians

By Daniel Greenfield

Obama recently decided to effectively suspend enforcement of immigration law and unilaterally legalize huge numbers of illegal aliens. But one of his minions is sending around letters threatening states who refuse to accept his army of Syrian migrants, at least 13% of which poll as supporting ISIS. That means out of his first 10,000 Syrians, over a thousand would be ISIS supporters.


By Richard Larsen

It’s hard to think of any other way to characterize the off-year elections results across the nation, than that the rejection of liberalism and progressivism continues unabated. Races across the country, and even some key social-issue elections, don’t portend well for those on the left of the political spectrum.

Giving Thanks for the Republican Establishment

Today I give thanks for my family, my friends, my colleagues and our great country, especially those who serve in our military, intelligence, law enforcement and first responder communities to protect us. I give thanks that I was fortunate enough to be born in this wonderful nation, the most magnificent society on the face of the Earth.

Today I also give thanks to the Republican Party, its leaders, and its media. I give thanks to the party's agenda -- in the wake of the Mississippi Senate primary and numerous derogatory remarks -- as it made clear it sought to wage war against us. It is a fact that the Republican establishment seeks to expel conservatives from the party.

Did you drop your Republican registration to express your disgust? Awesome -- you did exactly what the establishment wanted, so you couldn't vote for an insurgent candidate like Donald Trump in your state primary.

DOCUMENT LEAK: Virginia GOP Establishment’s "Loyalty Oath" Scheme to Suppress Insurgents Trump and Cruz

The Last Refuge blog (also known as The Conservative Treehouse) has done yeoman's work exposing the GOP establishment's plot to jam Jeb Bush down the collective throats of the electorate.

Despite Bush's single-digit poll numbers, the GOPe remains fixated on a Bush candidacy (and, by extension, a Hillary presidency, since Bush has zero chance of winning a general election).

Most recently, Virginia's old guard has proffered a laughably obvious ploy to deter independent, Tea Party, Reagan Democrat, and Constitutional Conservatives who have abandoned the Republican establishment from voting in the GOP primary.

LOSING THE PRIMARY TO WIN THE GENERAL? Why ¡Jeb’s failed campaign hasn’t called it quits

By Jen Kuznicki

It was a puzzling statement for sure when Jeb Bush said early on in his run for president that Republicans need to stop trying to win the argument, and that he would rather lose the primary in order to win the general.

Many, including me, asked just how it is possible to lose the primary but go on to win in the general, a race determined by who wins the Republican primary.

But now that Jeb has thoroughly botched the debates, and fallen far short of getting enough momentum before Iowa to be considered in contention for winning the primary, shouldn’t we ask whether he is simply following through with his stated goal?

MITCH McRUBIO: Florida Senator Won’t Use Congressional Power of the Purse to Stop the ISIS Invasion

By Julia Hahn

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) tells Sean Hannity that he’d “hate to use” Congress’ power of the purse to block Obama’s refugee resettlement program. He’d prefer to opt for Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s plan, which would allow the President to resettle 85,000 or more refugees this year from countries including Somalia, the Congo and Syria.

Hannity pressed Rubio on how Republicans could stop the importation of Syrian refugees into the United States.

"The country has reached its Lexington and Concord moment"

By Lawrence Sellin

It is now clear that the US Government, for the most part is unable and, in some cases, refuses to protect Americans from external and internal threats to our security, whether that be through unregulated immigration, an impotent ISIS policy or the disarming of law-abiding citizens.

Under the Obama Administration's leadership, elements of the radical left such as Black Lives Matter have joined forces with the Islamist-supporting groups the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and funded by Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety,  George Soros' Center for American Progress and the Joyce Foundation, a group that funds gun control efforts.

While the Islamist groups want to render us defenseless against jihad in America, the political left wants to make us vulnerable to government tyranny.

QOTD: ""Let's be clear," [Hillary] Clinton lectured. "Muslims have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

If by "nothing," she means everything, she is correct.

Within hours of her delusional statement, another Muslim terror group, Boko Haram, killed 27 at the Radisson hotel in Mali's capital city, while forcing guests to recite verses from the Quran.

Yet this was not Islam, either, we are told. We heard the same politically correct claptrap after Muslims bombed two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998 and after 19 more Muslims attacked Washington and New York on Sept. 11, 2001, slaughtering almost 3,000. And again after Muslims attacked Madrid, Bali and London. And when Muslim snipers shot up Washington. And when a Muslim massacred soldiers at Fort Hood. And when Muslims slaughtered more than 60, including two dozen children and three pregnant women, at a shopping mall in Kenya. And again after Muslims bombed the Boston marathon. And this year, after a Muslim gunned down five soldiers in Chattanooga.

Though the latest denials are demonstrably false, at least apologists have dropped the risible "Religion of Peace" mantra." --Investors Business Daily

MUGSHOTS: The 15 Dumbest Crooks

For sheer entertainment value alone, nothing beats perusing the Darwin Award applicants who have violated U.S. criminal code and -- more importantly -- any semblance of common sense.

FAILURE FUNNIES: Or "How to Burn $200 Million on a Complete Zero of a Candidate"

Once again, our summer intern @BiffSpackle nails it, the subtext of which remains the timeless question about the ill-fated campaign of Jeb Bush: "What, Jon Huntsman wasn't available?"

Which explains why losers like ¡Yeb! and ¡RubINO! are attacking outsiders like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

CRUZ BLITZES EPA EMISSIONS PLAN: "Our founders would have recognized [this] as tyranny"

By Jon Cassidy

Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton denounced a new federal emissions regulation as illegal, expensive and pointless Thursday during an energy conference organized by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s new regulation, known as the Clean Power Plan, was finalized last month and immediately challenged in court by 26 states and an array of companies and associations in the energy industry.

“The regulation is neither clean nor does it have anything to do with power, other than the Obama Administration’s power to harm our energy production,” Cruz, a Republican, said in a taped message.

CHART: Only 4 Left in the GOP Presidential Primary

A new Iowa poll shows Donald Trump and Ted Cruz locked in a virtual tie:

Support for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has surged among Iowa Republicans, a new poll shows, suggesting his effort to sew up support among influential evangelical Christians in the first-in-the-nation caucus state has borne fruit.

A new Quinnipiac University poll of likely Republican caucus goers showed Mr. Cruz with 23%, behind only New York real estate developer Donald Trump, with 25%. That is more than double Mr. Cruz’s showing of 10% in the university’s October poll. Mr. Trump gained five points from October.

QOTD: "[A] lawless, corrupt government run by an elite oligarchy that plunders our treasury, bankrupts cities and even States, taxes the productive and redistributes wealth in order to curry the favor and votes of the unproductive, flouts the law as a matter of course, permits (and subsidizes) an organization like Planned Parenthood to massacre millions of infants and sell their organs, weaponizes the tax system to punish it’s critics, surveils the citizenry, and routinely violates the protections of the Constitution can not go on, either.

What can not go on, will NOT go on." --Taxicab Depressions
