Some African Countries Are Excrement Holes, So Is Haiti

For the past several days, those sane ones among us have had to endure the infantile blathering about something President Trump may or may not have said in describing countries composed mostly of people of color. So what if he said whatever he said if it’s true? I would wager that most Americans, myself included, do not care what color the people are in those “excrement holes” (I’d like to describe them the way the President is alleged to have described them, but my text would be censored). Our primary concern as American patriots is that whatever their color, they are not allowed in our country if they do not bring something of value with them. Something that ...

Medical Marijuana Isn’t a Miracle Drug

Medical Marijuana Isn’t a Miracle Drug For some, cannabis can cause the very symptoms it’s trying to prevent Bias is, essentially, a human thing. We look at evidence from our own point of view. We choose results that suit our personal perspective, because we all want our opinions to be right. We can’t help it. So when I say that cannabis is great, and that I am fully behind legalization of it as a public good, you might wonder why I’m writing an article about how it’s not a very useful medicine. I’d love cannabis to cure everything from headaches to seizures, but the evidence is not on my side. As much as I wish it were. Miracle Cures Medicinal cannabis is ...

Justice Scalia Spoke Favorably of Trump’s Presidential Run, Author Bryan Garner Says
Post Date: 2018-01-15 11:08:45 by IbJensen

WASHINGTON—Shortly before his death in February 2016, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia spoke favorably of Donald Trump’s presidential run. “Justice Scalia thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank,” said the late jurist’s literary collaborator, Bryan Garner, a legal dictionary editor who spent two weeks in 2016 traveling with Justice Scalia through several Asian countries. The justice thought well of Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor whose campaign for the Republican nomination stalled, said Mr. Garner, whose memoir of a decadelong friendship, “Nino and Me,” comes out Tuesday. “But ...

Planned Parenthood: Evil, Baby Murdering Business Must Be Defunded!

Heroism is usefully defined as an act of selflessness — sacrificing oneself for the life of another. Medal of Honor recipients perform acts of true heroism, often giving their life to save their brothers in arms. But what is the opposite of heroism? What would you call an organization and its leader who brag about killing the most innocent among us and killing in a barbaric, painful manner for selfish reasons? Planned Parenthood and its leader, Cecile Richards, are responsible for the murder of hundreds of thousands of babies annually and brag about just that. Found within the Planned Parenthood Annual Report, a quote by President Cecile Richards: We are here today to thank ...

‘The Post’ Review (Finally, someone has the guts to stick up for the media)

Finally. I can't believe it's taken this long. After all these years of denigration and disrespect, after all this time when no one would ever dare praise the press, our one bulwark of freedom against the totalitarian horror of representative democracy. It's about time the mainstream media had its own propaganda film. Don't get me wrong: I quite liked The Post. Or, perhaps it's better to say that I quite admired it. It's a very admirable piece of filmmaking, from a very admirable director. If you've ever had any doubt that Steven Spielberg is one of the great filmmakers of all time, all you need to do is watch him turn a story about issuing stock and publishing a ...

More Than a Libertarian

You’re likely aware that I’m a libertarian. But I’m actually more than a libertarian. I don’t believe in the right of the State to exist. The reason is that anything that has a monopoly of force is extremely dangerous. As Mao Tse-tung, lately one of the world’s leading experts on government, said: “The power of the state comes out of a barrel of a gun.” There are two possible ways for people to relate to each other, either voluntarily or coercively. And the State is pure institutionalized coercion. It’s not just unnecessary, but antithetical, for a civilized society. And that’s increasingly true as technology advances. It was never moral, but at ...

“Jesus is too much for us. The church’s later treatment of the gospels is one long effort to rescue Jesus from ‘extremism.’”—author Gary Wills, What Jesus Meant The Christmas narrative of a baby born in a manger is a familiar one. The Roman Empire, a police state in its own right, had ordered that a census be conducted. Joseph and his pregnant wife Mary traveled to the little town of Bethlehem so that they could be counted. There being no room for the couple at any of the inns, they stayed in a stable, where Mary gave birth to a baby boy, Jesus. Unfortunately, Jesus was born into a police state not unlike the growing menace of the American police state. When ...

“What the hell is going on in Chicago?” Donald Trump asked a group of law enforcement officers at the FBI Academy on Friday. “What the hell’s happening there?” Glad you asked, Mr. President. What’s happening here is that murders skyrocketed in big cities in the United States in 2016 and Chicago is a big city in the United States. A 59 percent jump over the year before. Quite a lot, though other cities were worse — San Antonio jumped 61 percent. Which means what? You can’t judge anything with a statistic as narrow as one year’s increase over another. On that scale, Orlando would be the Murder Capital of America, with 169 percent increase in 2016 ...

Williams I'm approaching my 82nd birthday, and my daughter will occasionally suggest that modernity is perplexing to me because I'm from prehistoric times. As such, it points to one of the unavoidable problems of youth -- namely, the temptation to think that today's behavioral standards have always been. Let's look at a few of the differences between yesteryear and today. One of those differences is the treatment of women. There are awesome physical strength differences between men and women. To create and maintain civil relationships between the sexes is to drum into boys, starting ...

“We will never accept Russia’s occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea,” declaimed Rex Tillerson last week in Vienna. “Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns full control of the peninsula to Ukraine.” Tillerson’s principled rejection of the seizure of land by military force–“never accept”–came just one day after President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and pledged to move our embassy there. How did Israel gain title to East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Golan Heights? Invasion, occupation, colonization, annexation. Those lands are the spoils of victory from Israel’s 1967 Six-Day ...

Diversity Must Not Be Questioned

On Friday, Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King, Congress’ foremost immigration hawk, tweeted out, “Diversity is not our strength. Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, ‘Mixing cultures will not lead to a higher quality of life but a lower one.'” The Iowa congressman followed up that tweet with this opinion, “Assimilation has become a dirty word to the multiculturalist Left. Assimilation, not diversity, is our American strength.” King’s tweets soon became a lightning rod for outraged liberals and respectable conservatives. Some critics argued diversity was good and King was clearly inbred white trash. The problem with a lack of diversity, Congressman, ...

Legalizing Opioids Would Dramatically Reduce Overdoses
Post Date: 2017-12-01 17:46:25 by hondo68

Many users substitute harder street drugs when access to less potent opioids is cut off. In his Liberty Forum essay, Robert VerBruggen argues that the dramatic increase in opioid deaths in the United States over the past two decades has resulted mainly from over-selling by pharmaceutical companies and over-prescribing by physicians and other healthcare providers. As such, he concludes that policy should further restrict access to prescription opioids, while expanding access to Medication Assisted Therapies (MATs) such as methadone and buprenorphine. Legalization would dramatically reduce overdoses. I argue here that opioid overdoses occur mainly when policies are in place that restrict or ...

As has become the pattern with the Left when they are being eviscerated politically, they trot out the vilest of accusations against whomever fits their latest challenge. Judge Roy Moore, who recently won the Alabama state primary against a more establishment Republican candidate, is their new challenge, and like clockwork they have found a “victim” to throw at the judge’s feet. Judge Moore, like President Trump, is one to be feared. He is a fierce fighter for conservative and Christian causes, and that alone renders him a severe threat to the Republican establishment and the ungodly Left. I sincerely hope he is ready to take on this latest attempt to keep him out of the ...

Coulter ripped the diversity visa lottery, which was the method used by the terror suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, to get into the country and questioned the merits of the policy that was heralded for “diversity.” “Every place there is diversity there is civil war, countries are breaking up,” Coulter told host Jesse Watters. “It’s never been a good thing.” She added, “Look at just Ireland. They’re all Irish and the Catholics and Protestants can’t get ...

Attention, all troops peeved with your platoon sergeant, bored with your field rations, or who just want a little private time: It’s okay to desert your post in a combat zone. It’s fine for you to trigger the deaths and grave woundings of better men than you. A military judge just set a precedent: Deserters in wartime walk free. You’ll probably get a book deal, too, and be portrayed as a hero in a big-budget film. The US Army colonel and judge who decided Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s fate has some explaining to do. How is it that a confessed deserter, whose actions brought our Afghan campaign to a halt and led to the acknowledged wounding and alleged deaths of his ...

I'm convinces Kushner was actually running this thing behind the scenes. 4) Jared Kushner was the real campaign manager so Trump put a LIGHTENING ROD out front to catch all the heat. 5) And this was true even AFTER Manafort left the campaign after 3 months & @KellyannePolls took over the job of front person. 6) Kelly Anne did a FANTASTIC job of handling the media & PR, ...

For every military veteran appearing in a Colorado public meeting to advocate for the right to use marijuana to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, mental health professionals throughout Colorado estimate they've worked with thousands whose pot use made their PTSD - and their lives in general - much worse. "I have seen marijuana use create so many more problems than it solves," said Brian Lanier, a licensed clinical social worker and Army reservist in Colorado Springs who has worked more than 15 years with veterans and active-duty service members. "If nothing else, these people are just numbing themselves, which is definitely not appropriate treatment for PTSD. Telling ...

Why doesn’t Hillary’s ‘dossier’ trick count as treason?

What’s the difference between the infamous Russian dossier on Donald Trump and that random fake-news story you saw on Facebook last year? The latter was never used by America’s intelligence community to bolster its case for spying on American citizens nor was it the foundation for a year’s worth of media coverage. Then again, you get what you pay for. We now know Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid as much as $9 million for the discredited dossier on Trump. According to The Washington Post, a lawyer named Marc Elias, who represented both the 2016 Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, had hired Fusion GPS, a DC firm working on behalf ...

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on September 18, 2017, in Washington, D.C., at Hillsdale College’s Eighth Annual Constitution Day Celebration. Last year, for the first time in our nation’s history, the American people elected as president someone with no high government experience—not a senator, not a congressman, not a governor, not a cabinet secretary, not a general. They did this, I believe, because they’ve lost faith in both the competence and the intentions of our governing class—of both parties! Government now takes nearly half of every dollar we earn and bosses us around in every aspect of life, yet can’t deliver basic services well. ...

Corey FeldmanOne of the big lessons from the Harvey Weinstein scandal is the number of victims who weren’t believed. Model Zoë Brock said Weinstein chased her around a hotel room naked, begging for a massage. It was 1997, and “no one believed my story,” Brock said. Angie Everhart said no one believed her when she recounted Weinstein barging into her guest room on a yacht, blocking her door and masturbating to completion. For quite some time, no one believed Rose McGowan’s tweets that heavily implied Weinstein raped her. So: If “Believe the victim” is, in fact, the lesson here, why won’t anyone believe Corey Feldman? For years, Feldman has been adamant ...

It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks. Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval. The New York Times confirmed and followed up on Schweizer’s reporting — all of it denounced by Hillary as a partisan hit job. But now The Hill ...
