Florida Students March to False Gun Message

Florida Students March to False Gun Message
The shooting at a high school in Florida that left 17 dead has left students in America emotionally drained.  They have witnessed the horror of gun violence, and they’ve been told by the public school system, media, and other sources that the only way to end such situations is through more gun control; and ultimately, the full confiscation of every gun in the country.

After the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in an attempt to show solidarity with their fellow students nearby, Florida students from a neighboring school walked out of class to participate in their own protest against gun violence.

The Big Bot Conspiracy

The Big Bot Conspiracy
Bots. Is there anything they can’t do?

The Internet Research Agency indictment accuses a troll bot farm of trying to influence the election in what the media claims is the worst attack on America since Pearl Harbor. 9/11 need not apply.

Watch Vice President Mike Pence's CPAC 2018 speech here

Mike Pence just delivered his address to CPAC 2018 and, by all accounts, he knocked it out of the park.

The speech is one part outline of the administration’s successful first year, one part attack on the media, one part desire to unite populists and party-loyalists, and about ten parts warm-up for President Trump’s speech tomorrow.

All in all, it’s a solid, entertaining, twenty minutes.

You can watch it below.

600-page White House report: Why yes, Obama’s policies did cause all that puny economic growth

600-page White House report: Why yes, Obama's policies did cause all that puny economic growth
I’m not sure we needed a 600-page report to tell us that. We’ve dealt with it often here, simply because we’re paying attention. But if you want the data and the policy correlations to back it up, the White House economic team has done the work for you.

The Wall Street Journal’s news pages seem to think it’s untoward that Trump’s team is blaming Obama:

Is anyone willing to consider that public schools are inherently unsafe places?

Is anyone willing to consider that public schools are inherently unsafe places?
One of the tropes you often hear in the aftermath of a school shooting is that the incident is particularly egregious because a school should be an especially safe place. Most would nod their heads at the sentiment. Yes, we should all feel confident that when we send our children to school, they’re in about as safe a place as they could ever be.

But when you think about what it’s like in a school, there is every reason to realize that makes no sense whatsoever. Schools are tinder boxes for violent explosions and disastrous tragedies, especially high schools.

My Genuine Bipartisan Compromise Offer

My Genuine Bipartisan Compromise Offer
The nation just witnessed what the OpMedia and the Commentariat like to call “bipartisan legislation.” The occasion was the two–year spending–palooza that Curator of the Senate Mitch McConnell and The Boy Ryan passed.

It was bipartisan in the sense that country club conservatives let Democrats waste $150 million on social programs, so they could waste an equal amount at the Pentagon Mall. It wasn’t a genuine compromise any more than two addicts agreeing to split stolen money between heroin and crack is a compromise.

The “New” Conservatives: Pro-Gay, Pro-Pot, Pro-Russia

The New Conservatives: Pro-Gay, Pro-Pot, Pro-Russia
Ronald Reagan would be rolling over in his grave if he knew what the leadership of the American Conservative Union (ACU) was doing to the conservative movement. The ACU, which sponsors the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), has destroyed one leg of Reagan’s “three-legged stool” approach to conservatism, and has greatly undermined another.

Reagan’s approach emphasized the fiscal/economic, social/moral, and national security aspects of conservatism. Under this approach, the secret of success is maintaining all three legs of the stool. But the stool is broken at CPAC 2018.  The Swamp has taken over.

I’m quoted in the Daily Caller today in a piece by fellow investigative reporter Richard Pollock titled, “George Soros Makes Massive Financial Investments On Fossil Fuels.”

Soros is an amoral pig* so of course he howls about global warming but at the same time invests in the very industries that his co-religionists blame for global warming.

President Trump and the Darkest Hour

President Trump and the Darkest Hour
Never give in, never give in—never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.  Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) “Never Give In Speech” Harrow School, 1941



Never, ever, give up!  …Demand the best from yourself and be totally unafraid to challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures.  …Relish the opportunity to be an outsider.  Embrace that label.  Being an outsider is fine, embrace the label, because it’s the outsiders who change the world and who make a real and lasting difference.

BROOKLYN, NY - The star witness in a federal lawsuit filed by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman admitted in court that she created a fake Facebook page, pretending she was a pro-life Christian, to gather information on and entrap pro-life sidewalk counselors and preachers who appeared in front of the Choices Women’s Medical Center in Jamaica, New York.

Schneiderman seeks to punish pro-life sidewalk counselors who peacefully share the good news on public sidewalks. Liberty Counsel represents one of the 13 defendants, Scott Fitchett, Jr.

Olympics Corrupted to Further Anti-God Agenda

Olympics Corrupted to Further Anti-God Agenda
Watching the Olympics was a big deal when I was a kid, a pleasurable family affair. I tuned in the 2018 Olympics expecting to enjoy extraordinary performances. Instead, the announcer began introducing the next performer as a hero for the LGBT community. I immediately turned the channel. Folks, I am so sick of Leftists corrupting everything; usurping every opportunity to promote its anti-God and anti-America agendas. When will We the People just say, “No!”?

A U.S. Olympic team homosexual skater, in essence, gave Vice President Pence his middle finger; refusing to meet Pence. Leftists hate Pence for blocking attacks on religious liberty; stopping Christian businesses from being forced to service homosexual weddings against their faith.

Billy Graham’s Legacy Echoes Through Eternity

 Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

MONTREAT, N.C.—Evangelist Billy Graham passed away this morning at 7:46 a.m. at his home in Montreat. He was 99.

Throughout his life, Billy Graham preached the gospel of Jesus Christ to approximately 215 million people who attended one of his more than 400 crusades, simulcasts and evangelistic rallies in more than 185 countries and territories. He also reached millions more through TV, video, film, the internet and 34 books. Graham provided spiritual counsel to presidents, and his evangelistic crusades and gospel preaching brought him into contact with many world leaders and influencers, including multiple American presidents, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Queen Elizabeth II. In 2001, he comforted the world when he spoke at the National Cathedral in Washington, following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. At three global conferences held in Amsterdam (1983, 1986, 2000), Graham gathered some 23,000 evangelists from 208 countries and territories to train them to carry the message of Jesus Christ around the world.

Nancy Pelosi’s vision for border security: Let’s mow the grass along the border!

Nancy Pelosi's vision for border security: Let's mow the grass along the border!
Nancy Pelosi really doesn’t want to see that wall built.  She’s got an army of very angry illegals following her around, and if she doesn’t pander to them in just the right way, they start yelling. Nancy finds yelling upsetting, even if she can yell louder than anyone. So, to appease her base, she’s decided to offer an alternative to building a wall.

That alternative is…mowing the grass along the border.

Nancy Pelosi receives a blast of instant karma as her class warfare rhetoric blows up in her face

Nancy Pelosi receives a blast of instant karma as her class warfare rhetoric blows up in her face
Whenever Pelosi appears in public, you can count on two things.  She’ll pander to illegals, and she’ll play the “1% card.” She’s practically built a political empire by exploiting the jealousy of her left-wing base. Pelosi’s basic argument is the same as all liberals: If someone has more than you, they’ve gotten it by keeping you down.

There’s just one problem with that. If you’re like 99.9% of the American people, Nancy Pelosi has more than you.

Trump proposes expanding access to cheaper health insurance plans that leave out some ObamaCare requ

Trump proposes expanding access to cheaper health insurance plans that leave out some ObamaCare requirements
We’ve talked many times here about the fundamental flaws in the ObamaCare economic model. Chief among them is the fact that it denied people the choice not only of whether to buy health insurance (although that’s now been rectified), but also of how much health insurance to buy.

If you don’t think it’s worth it to pay a higher premium for coverage of all kinds of things you are unlikely to ever use, some left-wing know-it-alls might sit there and call you a fool. But it’s your choice, not theirs. At least it should be. You might calculate that you’re better off spending less on premiums to focus your coverage on care that is actually relevant to you. That’s your call, not the call of some “expert” and certainly not of the government.

Sustainable Development: Code for Reorganizing Human Society

Sustainable Development: Code for Reorganizing Human Society
It’s in every community in the nation. We hear it talked about in county commission meetings and state legislatures. It’s even used in advertising as a positive practice for food processing and auto sales. It’s used as the model for building materials, power sources and transportation policy. It’s sold as the bold visionary plan for the future. The nation is being transformed under the banner of “Sustainable Development.”

We are assured by elected officials that Sustainable Development is simply a tool or a guideline to help direct the carefully-planned growth of our cities and rural areas while protecting our natural resources for future generations. “We must guard against a chaotic, unregulated growth in our cities,” say its earnest proponents as they sell the concept through familiar, non-threatening words and beautiful pictures.

Mueller Comes Up Short—Again

Mueller Comes Up Short--Again
A Dutch lawyer unconnected to the unproven claim the Trump campaign somehow colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election has pled guilty to lying to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators.

This failure – yet again – to indict a Trump campaign official in connection with the campaign’s allegedly collusive behavior appears to constitute another tacit admission by Mueller that the Left’s electoral collusion conspiracy theory that he was commissioned to investigate is utter nonsense. Charging all these people with lying, instead of with anything related to collusion, is likely a prosecutorial tactic to pressure somebody somewhere into doing something. Mueller’s real target seems to be former Trump campaign manager Paul J. Manafort Jr.

One of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas is Lakeside, on the lower level of the Wynn Hotel. Everything on the menu is great! Fresh fish, other seafood, beef and salads, you name it! I’ve tried them all!

Lisa is one of the bartenders. I usually have my meal at the bar if I’m dinning in a hurry. She is an admitted liberal thinker, and we usually have some spirited debates about the political issues of the day. I would usually avoid such debates when I’m on a relaxation trip, but she is a “savable” liberal.
