Why Libs Love Dead Commies
American Spectator, by Greg Gutfeld

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 4/11/2014 7:43:46 AM

The quickest way for a commie a**hole to gain weepy fans is to die. This is something I’m willing to accept, as long as it happens regularly. But it’s no surprise that when someone truly awful dies, the cool break out in reverence. Which is what happened when Hugo Chávez croaked. On that day in March 2013, we saw a parade of misty-eyed celebrities and solemn left-wing hacks paying tribute to a dead guy. Out of the woodwork came a parade of Hugoslavians, tyrant-lovers who could overlook the heathen’s badness for the sake of coolness. See, someone can be truly evil.

GOP’s post-Obama problem: Why they’re
lost without him — and with the electorate

With the 2014 congressional primary season almost behind us, the conventional wisdom has hardened: The Republican establishment has vanquished its Tea Party tormentors. The progressive response to that narrative — that the establishment only “won” by capitulating to the Tea Party — is hardening, too. I want to challenge that a little. When North Carolina State Sen. Thom Tillis won the GOP Senate nomination in early May, it seemed ridiculous to claim the Tea Party had been defeated, though he technically had a Tea Party rival: Tillis was as extreme as his opponent, supporting personhood legislation and tax cuts for

Poll: Only Mike Huckabee is more
conservative than Ted Cruz

He´s been a senator for only 16 months, but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has created such a sensation among conservatives, Tea Party members and strict Constitutionalists that he is now poised to be among the top of 2016 GOP presidential candidates, according to a new poll. The engaging senator “could have an edge in the primaries as he is seen as one of the most conservative GOP politicians around,” said the Economist/YouGov.com poll. He is also viewed as honest and outspoken. And in a sign of his growing popularity among conservatives, 36 percent of Republicans want him to run for president.

The European ruling class might have gotten their first glimpse at pitchforks and torches over the weekend when anti-EU parties made gains across the continent. That doesn’t mean the European Parliament is being quickly ushered to the guillotine; but the anti-EU victories can’t possibly be a comforting sight to the bureaucrats who have run Europe’s economy for the last decade. From Scotland to Greece, citizens seem to be growing increasingly weary of the European experiment. A Margaret Thatcher renaissance seems to have swept Europe over the weekend. Breitbart London began their report on the political earthquake by quoting Charles de Gaulle.

The Perplexing Durability of
Keynesian Economics
Townhall, by Daniel J. Mitchel    Original Article

Keynesian economics is a failure. It didn’t work for Hoover and Roosevelt in the 1930s. It didn’t work for Japan in the 1990s. And it didn’t work for Bush or Obama in recent years. No matter where’s it’s been tried, it’s been a flop. So why, whenever there’s a downturn, do politicians resuscitate the idea that bigger government will “stimulate” the economy? I’ve tried to answer that question. Keynesian economics is the perpetual motion machine of the left. You build a model that assumes government spending is good for the economy and you assume that there are zero costs when the government diverts money from

Banks are breathing a sigh of relief after established GOP incumbents bested a handful of Tea Party challengers at the polls recently. Industry sources said the establishment wins improve Republican odds of retaking the Senate, which would in turn lead to a friendlier climate for the long-beleaguered sector. But some note that the Tea Party has left a mark on the Republican Party, presenting a challenging landscape for the industry. The Tea Party movement can trace its roots back to fury about bailouts and banks, but the force that pulled the Republican Party right in recent years is finding less success at

How to Save the Republic:

Reason’s irascible Nick Gillespie has summed up what’s wrong with our political system in one chart: Apparently everyone hates Congress, but no one hates their congressperson. I’m here to tell you that, contrary to what you may believe, your Congresscritter sucks too! Congress just watered down a bill that would start to begin the process of maybe thinking about re-establishing our Fourth Amendment rights. Guess we don’t need those after all. But aside from our eroding civil liberties, the economic situation is even more dire. There’s a reason only 28 percent of Americans think the country is moving in the right

Republicans shouldn´t fear being ideological

Talk about Republican Party differences between the “establishment” and the Tea Party is taking attention from where it really needs to be focused: on the real issues facing the nation. (SNIP) The Republican “establishment” is complicit in the problem because none of today’s biggest problems are new. They have been growing and obvious for many years, and Republicans who have held power in Washington, both in the White House and in the Congress, have ignored it all.

Nate Silver Is Half Right About

The resounding victory that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell scored over "tea party" businessman Matt Bevin this past week has thrown the media into a tizzy. Is the "tea party" dead? Did the GOP establishment kill it? Or did the GOP subsume the tea party, taking its candidates, its issues, and its ideology for the GOP? Nate Silver writes that recent "tea party vs. establishment GOP" stories are inadequate: The term “tea party” is applied very loosely by the political media. Was Missouri Rep. Todd Akin a member of the tea party, for instance? Weigel says no: Most groups associated

I think we have all had this encounter: a kind of condescending jab, suggesting a non-chic, misguided, non-intellectual train of thought possessed by a non-progressive-thinking person. “You’re a conservative, aren’t you?” The talk show host Dennis Miller has suggested a way to deal with such encounters, and there is some merit in his tack. Do not argue; do not get agitated. Merely smile, drop your jaw, nod. Allow your eyes to glaze over. Play along. Possum-like, rope-a-dope non-confrontational. Enjoy your day, and don’t let this bother you. You are not going to change the mind of the person to whom

The Tea Party: Tamed, Torpedoed, or Top Dog?
American Spectator, by Ross Kaminsky    Original Article

According to media reports from liberal and conservative outlets alike, the Tea Party is somewhere between “tamed” and dead — the mainstream right helpfully suggesting the former while the left (which is to say most of the media) gleefully proclaim the latter. At the same time, the liberal message machine has issued new — and completely contradictory — talking points urging desperate Democrats to pronounce authoritatively that the Tea Party has “taken over” the GOP. They’re all a little bit right, a little bit wrong, and completely missing the point. With a few important exceptions, notably Ben Sasse’s victory in the Republican

Given what we know now about the Veterans Administration and it´s disgraceful care for our soldiers, these thoughts from liberal columnists Paul Krugman and Ezra Klein would be comical if the situation wasn´t so serious. Washington Examiner: In 2011, Krugman wrote a column blasting Mitt Romney after the Republican presidential candidate called for partially privatizing the system. “What Mr. Romney and everyone else should know is that the V.H.A. is a huge policy success story, which offers important lessons for future health reform,” he wrote. The lessons, he said, were that the incentives created by its integrated care model led to less waste

Tea Party Continues Winning

Yes, you heard that right. The tea party is (still) winning, even during and after this year’s 2014 Republican primary season. The tea party is not a political party. It never has been. The tea party never set as its goal defeating every single incumbent Republican officeholder. The fact that the tea party has taken the scalps of about 50 House Democrats in the 2010 election and several giants in the Republican establishment during 2010 and 2012 is a bonus. That is far in excess of what the tea party movement ever expected to accomplish. The tea party movement was born in

If we were living in normal times, the following scandals and failures — without going into foreign policy — would have ruined a presidency to the point of reducing it to Nixon, Bush, or Truman poll ratings. Think of the following: the Fast and Furious scandal, the VA mess, the tapping of the communications of the Associated Press reporters, the NSA monitoring, Benghazi in all of its manifestations, the serial lies about Obamacare, the failed stimuli, the chronic zero interest/print money policies, the serial high unemployment, the borrowing of $7 trillion to no stimulatory effect, the spiraling national debt, the customary

Government Agency Scraps Employee
Ratings To Avoid ‘Discrimination’

One government agency has decided that the results of employee ratings are too discriminatory, and eliminated the process entirely. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced on Monday that it will now award all employees the highest rating regardless of performance reviews. The CFPB, which oversees transactions in the financial sector for the federal government, decided to no longer conduct employee reviews because there were just too many apparent “significant disparities” between the races, ages, and locations of its employees. According to American Banker, this new policy is set to cost over $5 million

First Lady Michelle Obama is moving to quell the revolt against the school meal nutrition standards that she helped set in place. House Republicans are supporting a measure that would allow some school districts to opt out of the standards—if they can prove that it is affecting their school budgets. In response, Michelle Obama is scheduled to meet with school leaders and experts on nutrition Tuesday to discuss the importance of federal regulation of school meals. The strict rules, passed in 2010, limit the amount of fat, calories, sugar, and sodium served during school meals and requires more whole grains. “Mrs. Obama will stress

The White House has launched an internal probe after its press office inadvertently outed the top CIA official in Afghanistan -- a national security blunder that could put that individual at risk. A spokeswoman with the National Security Council confirmed to Fox News that the White House chief of staff asked White House Counsel Neil Eggleston to “look into what happened” and make recommendations on “how the administration can improve processes and make sure something like this does not happen again.” The brief statement from the National Security Council was the first on-the-record comment made by the administration since the

Great lives, fully lived, cast long shadows. Fifty years after his death, it’s not unusual to hear people rank Douglas MacArthur among America’s worst generals—alongside Benedict Arnold and William Westmoreland. His critics say he was insubordinate and arrogant, callous in dealing with dissent, his Korean War command studded with mistakes. “MacArthur could never see another sun, or even a moon for that matter, in the heavens, as long as he was the sun,” once said President Eisenhower, who had served under MacArthur in the Pacific. Some of what the critics say is undoubtedly true, but much of what they say

Friday´s shooting rampage in California that left three people dead from gunfire and another three stabbed to death is again raising calls for Congress to revisit various shades of gun control legislation. But if other, more deadly recent high-profile shootings weren´t enough of a catalyst to spur change, election-year politics is sure to stop short any serious renewed efforts in the near-term. The Republican-led House has let the Democratic-led Senate wrestle over dealing with gun control since the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The Senate did manage to bring up a bipartisan bill to

Give Barack Obama credit. He never claimed he had the executive experience many Americans feel is essential for a president. Go back to October 2006. There was much buzz that Sen. Obama, newly arrived in Washington, would run for the White House. "You´ve been a United States senator less than two years, you don´t have any executive experience. Are you ready to be president?" the late Tim Russert asked Obama on NBC."Well, I´m not sure anybody is ready to be president before they´re president," Obama responded. "You know, ultimately, I trust the judgment of the American people." That didn´t exactly

Maya Angelou, a renowned poet, novelist and actress whose work defied description under a simple label, has died, her literary agent, Helen Brann, said Wednesday. She died at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Brann said. A professor, singer and dancer, Angelou´s work spans several professions. In 2011, President Barack Obama awarded her with the Medal of Freedom, the country´s highest civilian honor. She spent her early years studying dance and drama in San Francisco, but dropped out at age 14, instead becoming the city´s first African-American female cable car conductor.

Students only found out about Robertson’s role in commencement from faculty members, who also found out about the award the day before the ceremony.Only a few months ago, Robertson came under fire for anti-LGBT comments in his interview with

Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year.” Billoo also retweeted radical comments from CAIR official Dawud Walid from Michigan and radical Islamist poet Remi Kanazi. The Clarion Project reported: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group labeled by the Justice Department as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial, disingenuously claims that it is a moderate organization. Yet, on May 23, Zahra Billoo, the radical executive-director of CAIR’s San Francisco Bay Area chapter, tweeted that she “struggles with Memorial Day each year” about whether

Real estate mogul Donald Trump says he has no regrets about demanding President Obama’s records. ‘Not even a little bit,“ Trump said Tuesday at the National Press Club when asked if he regretted questioning Obama’s citizenship. “I don’t regret it. Why would I regret it?” Tuesday, Trump alluded to a promotional booklet revealed by Breitbart in May 2012 and produced in 1991 by Acton & Dystel that asserted Obama was born in Kenya. Miriam Goderich, who was an agency assistant at the time told Yahoo News that month that the claim amounted to a fact-checking error on her part. In

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day in honor of our American servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives defending us both at home and abroad. Many of our troops enlist in the military upon adulthood and have served in wars before their classmates have even graduated from college. These men and women are true American heroes and we must protect them just as well as they protect us. Unfortunately, despite President Obama’s Memorial Day proclamation that we shall “never forget” the sacrifices of our soldiers, he and Secretary of State John Kerry have forgotten about a living American hero in
