Appeal of their message to their base: Making America great again, Stopping the gravy train
Donald Trump: The new Rob Ford

 By Arthur Weinreb Full Story

Ever since Donald Trump began surging in polls in the race for the Republican nominee for president, the Toronto media has compared his rise to that of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford. The comparison is allowing the Ford haters, of which are many in the media, to say that Trump's appeal is the same as Ford's. While some of them "get it," many have no idea what attracts ordinary people to Ford and Trump and using Trump as an excuse to take another shot at Ford who is no longer mayor.

Killing the planet is Obama's #1 goal
 By A. Dru Kristenev Full Story

Having written on this president's impervious stance against carbon dioxide, the most necessary component in producing oxygen and keeping the earth green, it's redundant to say much more. However, as Obama, on Monday, installed yet another regulation to cut CO2 by 32% only one conclusion can be reached...the president is attempting to gut more than the economy, he's bent on killing life on earth.

Deconstructing the Trump phenomenon
 By David L. Hunter Full Story

From the perspective of all of us “average Joes,” I think it is fair comment that virtually anyone running for U.S. president these days is, by definition, a shameless self-promoter—with something of a God-complex—or a loose screw. With the multitude of problems in the world, who would want the pressures that come to bear or that fish bowl existence?

The “Stop Iran Now” Rally in Times Square Sent a Powerful Message
 By Roger Aronoff Full Story

President Barack Obama’s disastrous deal with Iran paves the way for this totalitarian regime to attain nuclear weapons, ones which Iran’s dictators could then aim squarely at the United States, Israel, and our allies. But the complicit media repeatedly join the administration in championing the deal, which both falsely claim is the only viable alternative to war.

Planned Parenthood, unequal justice and dark forces
 By Doug Hagmann Full Story

As an investigator and in particular, when I was working as an operational asset for the FBI in the 1990s, I was particularly good at securing covert video like that captured by the Center for Medical Progress of Planned Parenthood. In fact, I was used because I could convincingly present myself to the subjects of investigation as someone I was not, and secure the needed evidence that served as the basis for immediate raids, arrests and sometimes later, as courtroom exhibits for a jury to see.

Dawa at Chautauqua
 By Tabitha Korol Full Story

The Chautauqua Institution, deemed an adult education center, is less education than it is indoctrination to the world of The Left. In the month of July, in an idyllic setting, the Institution invited Islamists who speak of “Love and Justice in a World of Suffering,” hiding the truths about the suffering caused by Islam—both the harsh Sharia law already in effect for its adherents and to establish it in Dar Al-Harb (House of War), the countries not yet under Sharia—until the entire world will writhe under Islamic oppression.

Obama's Energy Power Grab
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full Story

The expansion of the federal government, and more specifically the expansion of the executive branch, has been the daunting storyline of the Barack Obama administration, be it taking control of the auto industry; inserting heavy federal regulations on the banking and credit industries; hijacking the health care industry with Obamacare (and modifying the law through executive orders when legislative authorities belongs to Congress); gun control measures; seizing control of the internet through an expansive reach of the FCC; declaring its own definition of marriage through a Supreme Court judicial ruling; calling a treaty with Iran an "agreement" to avoid the constitutional mandate of Senatorial ratification; disregarding immigration law and then using executive fiat to create new amnesty-style laws; providing waivers so that the friends of the Democrats can be exempt from various laws; rewriting the Service Contract Act of 1965; or unilateral military decisions after accusing Bush of not having the constitutional authority to do so. Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) has argued that the worst is yet to come. "These are not lawful actions. These are the power-hungry actions of a president who refuses to work with Congress."

The Banality of Evil
 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

The “banality of evil” became part of the cultural lexicon following the publication of German-born author Hannah Arendt’s 1963 book “Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil.” The book recounted the trial of Nazi Adolph Eichmann, who was chief of operations for the Gestapo-run Department for Jewish Affairs, and responsible for the deportation of three million Jews to extermination camps. Arendt hypothesized that people who carry out such barbarous crimes may not be inherently evil, but instead fairly ordinary individuals who simply accept the premises under which they operate.

On Courts and Constitutionality in the Kentucky Resolution of 1798
 By Tim Dunkin Full Story

One of the most common complaints of constitutionalists against the conduct of our federal government is that the judiciary at all levels routinely oversteps its boundaries, intruding into those areas that are beyond its constitutional reach.  Though this is largely accepted by most Americans because of its long practice, this does not mean that what we see in Washington with respect to the judicial branch should be be tolerated or allowed to continue.  As with unconstitutional actions by the other branches of government, our Founders provided a way for violations of our founding compact to be rectified by the states when the federal government refuses to use the system of checks and balances that was built into our constitutional system.

Liberal Seattle CEO who instituted minimum salary of $70,000 finds that doesn't work so well
 By Dan Calabrese Full Story

In a way, I have to admit, I have some sympathy for Dan Price and his quixotic quest to battle "income inequality" by instituting a minimum salary of $70,000 for all employees of his company. Not for the cause itself, which is merely the latest trend in left-wing economic illiteracy, but I too once ran a business in which I thought I could do amazing things by paying people way more than their experience levels or qualifications would earn them anywhere else.

Surrender Like a Boy Scout
 By Selwyn Duke Full Story

There has been much written about the Boy Scouts of America’s recent acceptance of openly homosexual scout masters. The organization has been raked over the coals by the right and accused of offering only a half-measure by the left. But few appreciate what the BSA has actually done — and the BSA has no idea what it has done to itself.

God, protect our babies from both president and pope
 By Judi McLeod Full Story

Unless his intention is to radically change or convert President Barack Obama, when Pope Francis descends on America next month, he will in essence be paying open homage to the world’s top champion of partial birth abortion.

John Kerry admits: Iran deal isn’t in treaty form because it would never be ratified by Congress

If you’re looking for someone who will admit what the left thinks, but usually doesn’t say, John Kerry might be your new best friend. Last week, we saw him testify that his nuclear deal with Iran would most likely lead to the deaths of American citizens. It was a disgusting, and probably treasonous, moment. It was also just the beginning of Kerry’s revelations.

Hillary’s energy plan is like Obama’s Clean Power Plan on steroids
 By Marita Noon   --Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The Clinton campaign’s newly announced “ambitious renewable energy plans” move far beyond Obama’s highly criticized efforts that have increased costs and jeopardized reliability—but they appease environmental activists and wealthy donors. Obama’s policies push a goal of producing 20 percent of the nation’s electricity from renewables by 2030; hers is 33 percent by 2027. We are at 7 percent today.

The June 2015 Locker Commission report is primarily a collection of recommendations pertaining to the defense budget, yet while each recommendation is worthy of careful consideration, it is difficult to accept them as a package. The commission’s recommendations are formulated as directives, and some lack the data and analysis necessary for weighing their relative merit.

Was There a Quid Pro Quo?
 By Chuck Lehmann   --American Politics

The definition of of “Quid Pro Quo” is:  “a favor or advantage granted or expected in return for something of value”.  Do any prominent people in our political system seem to be engaged in the practice of a “quid pro quo”?  Does the name Clinton come to mind?

Well, if not, maybe it should.  It seems that every time the Clintons got paid for a speech or a donation to the Clinton Foundation, something good happened to the donor (mostly financial).  That smelled something like a “quid pro quo”, don’t you think?
