The Democrat Party´s
Century of Tax Hikes

Townhall, by Micahel Schaus

The worst amendment to the Constitution is also one of the vaguest. The right to keep and bear arms might be simplistic, but at least it is direct. Our first amendment is mildly long winded and grotesquely misunderstood. However, the 16th amendment, ratified in 1913, stands as one of the most viscous deteriorations of the American Experiment. Stating simply “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration” the amendment grants to the Federal government powers typically reserved for

Limbaugh: Hillary Didn´t Declare
Boko Haram a Terrorist Group
´Because They´re Black
Breitbart TV, by Jeff Poor    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 5/12/2014 2:38:20 PM     Post Reply
On his Monday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh presented his theory as to why then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t declare Boko Haram a terrorist group back in President Barack Obama’s first term, which he declared to be based on race. “How many people do you think know that this terror group, Boko Haram, has been attacking Christians since 2009?” he said. “The jihad aspect of Boko Haram is almost completely ignored by the White House and the media. And I can tell you why – I just saw why. There’s video that has been released of about half of

Democrats are thinking about using Internet balloting in 2016 to expand their voter base and select a president -- prompting Republicans to consider such a strategy to keep from losing ground. Iowa Democrats proposed the idea and several others during a recent Democratic National Committee meeting, saying Internet balloting could expand access to their unique caucus process to overseas military personnel, absentee voters and others. They have already conducted some interviews and are now embarked on a “listening tour” to get input from party activists, caucus experts and others, says Iowa Democratic Party spokeswoman Christina Freundlich. “We’re looking at different options,” she told

Romney urges GOP to back

WASHINGTON – Mitt Romney on Friday urged the Republican Party to drop its opposition to raising the minimum wage, putting himself back in the middle of a vigorous debate over the direction of the party he led in 2012. “I part company with many of the conservatives in my party on the issue of the minimum wage. I think we ought to raise it,” Romney said Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “Because frankly, our party is all about more jobs and better pay. And I think communicating that is important.” “I also believe the key to our party is being able

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney on Thursday morning said he supports an increase in the minimum wage, breaking with many Republicans who have stood against it. “I, for instance, as you know, part company with many of the conservatives in my party on the issue of the minimum wage. I think we ought to raise it,” the 2012 Republican presidential nominee said. “Because frankly, our party is all about more jobs and better pay.” Romney’s comments come after Senate Republicans rejected a vote on a Senate bill that would have increased the minimum wage to $10.10. Recently, though, former Minnesota Gov. Tim

I’ve been waiting three hours since I saw this tweet for the NYT to publish a transcript or story about what he said, but no dice as I’m writing this. If it happens tonight, I’ll update with a link. The quote’s almost certainly not out of context, though: Remember, Paul told David Axelrod a few weeks ago that he thinks the GOP might be overemphasizing the issue. What’s newsy about this is the tone. Sounds like he’s gone from “maybe this isn’t a great idea” to “let’s drop it, quickly.”Meeting with black pastors and breaking with the party orthodoxy on

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Friday called for an increase in the federal minimum wage, splitting with party leaders and some top business groups on what´s expected to a major issue in this year´s midterm elections. "I ... part company with many of the conservatives of my party on the issue of the minimum wage," he said in an interview on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe." "I think we ought to raise it because, frankly, our party is all about more jobs and better pay, and I think communicating that is important to us," he said.

A good rule of thumb with Hillary Clinton is this: If it comes out of her mouth, it’s insincere. You will never lose money taking that bet 100 times out of 100. And a good corollary to that rule is this: When she tells you what something is supposed to mean, that’s not what it means at all. Especially when she’s talking about the Bible. Pay attention: When a liberal who “rarely mentions his or her faith” suddenly shows up in a church quoting Scripture to you, it’s a pretty good bet that liberal is trying to pervert the Scripture in

On Sunday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin reminded former Florida Governor Jeb Bush that no matter how much of an "act of love" he thinks illegal immigration is, it is still illegal. "I think that anybody who breaks a law in America as their first action putting their first foot on our homeland illegally, it may be an act of love from the heart, but it´s illegal," Palin told NBC News after attending a rally for Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst. They are "called illegal immigrants for a reason," she added. Bush, a potential 2016 presidential contender, has come under fire after

Sen. Mike Lee said Monday that most House Republicans do in fact want some form of immigration reform passed — just not the all-encompassing legislation approved by the Senate last year. “I think most members of [House Speaker John A. Boehner‘s] Republican conference would be willing and eager to pass some form of immigration reform, but it needs to be broken up, and it needs to be taken step-by-step, one step at a time,” Mr. Lee, Utah Republican, saidMonday on “Fox and Friends.” Mr. Lee was responding to a question about Mr. Boehner’s lampooning the attitude of some of his colleagues on

Sarah Palin would like all terrorists to know that if she were in charge, waterboarding is how the United States would baptize them. At least that´s what the former Alaskan governor and ex-vice presidential nominee told thousands of attendees this weekend at the National Rifle Association´s annual convention in Indianapolis. "If I were in charge," Palin said Saturday during a Stand And Fight rally at Lucas Oil Stadium, "[our enemies] would know that waterboarding is how we´d baptize terrorists." Palin mocked what she called the Obama administration´s coddling of suspected terrorists. "Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who´d obviously have information on plots,

A 13-year-old girl hoping to take a picture with President Barack Obama in South Korea Saturday was in for a major disappointment. Mika Taylor and a group of her friends from the U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan in Seoul was waiting for the president’s arrival with a large orange sign that read: ´MR. PRESIDENT MAY A [sic] HAVE A SELFIE WITH YOU?´ As the commander-in-chief made his way down two cordoned-off lines of spectators, he bypassed Taylor, telling her that if he agreed to take a selfie with the girl, he would have to do it for everyone else as well.

Reconnaissance photos captured by Cold War-era spy satellites have tripled the number of known archaeological sites across the Middle East, revealing thousands of ancient cities, roads, canals, and other ruins. The archaeologists behind the new CORONA Atlas of the Middle East report that a survey of satellite images has revealed thousands of previously undiscovered sites in Iraq, Turkey and Syria – including long-lost cities that could be among the earliest in human history. ‘Some of these sites are gigantic, and they were completely unknown,’ said University of Arkansas archaeologist Jesse Casana at the launch of the atlas during the Society

Karl Rove created a stir with his recent suggestion that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may have suffered traumatic brain injury in December 2012. Speaking at a conference in California, he noted, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Let’s ignore the media hyperventilating and look at what Rove actually suggested. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, traumatic brain injury, or TBI, “occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.” Secretary Clinton reportedly

President Obama declared his outrage at allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals at a Wednesday press conference after an Oval Office meeting with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. "I will not stand for it — not as commander in chief, but also not as an American,” he told reporters as furor grows over allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at the health care facilities. The VA Inspector General’s office said late Tuesday that 26 facilities are being investigated nationwide — up from 10 just last week — including a Phoenix hospital where 40 veterans allegedly died while waiting for treatment and

A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats

Republicans’ hopes of winning back the Senate received a big boost in primary elections Tuesday, with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) easily winning and other candidates favored by the party establishment beating back tea party challengers. After years of intraparty turmoil that cost Republicans key races, voters this year are coalescing around the GOP’s strongest candidates ahead of November’s general election, when control of the Senate during President Obama’s final two years in office will be up for grabs. On Tuesday, the most consequential day of voting so far this year, Democrats were left disappointed. GOP Senate candidates prone to

Time after time, President Obama has reportedly learned of a number of big administration scandals in the media, from the IRS to Fast & Furious and now the VA scandal over wait times and veterans dying before receiving proper treatment (Jay Carney said today the president learned about this scandal through media reports). All this apparent unawareness before the fact led Charles Krauthammer to argue on Special Report today that Obama acts like he “stumbled upon the presidency” only to be shocked by how much wrong there really is. He lightly mocked the idea that Obama is “madder than hell”

With the latest Benghazi! ™ extravaganza about to begin, the Democrats are faced with a dilemma. Should they boycott the silly hearings, thus leaving the Republicans to put on their pageant unimpeded, or should they join in with a full panel and add legitimacy to the process? The problem seems to be that whether they like it or not, these hearings are going to be covered. And if the press reaction so far tells us anything, they are looking for a show. This is why they should follow the advice of Ari Rabin-Havt in the American Prospect who says that

Appearing on an ABC Sunday morning show, Brown asserted that "We here in California are on the front lines." Brown reasserted that rising sea levels may precipitate the relocation of Los Angeles International airport (LAX). "We´ve got to deal with it. We´ve already appropriated $600 million.
