Ace of Spades: ‘Never Trumpers’ Morally Responsible for Hillary Clinton Presidency

Sorry, I was on Twitter. I felt it was necessary to dispel the widely-held myth, adored by #NeverTrumpers, that somehow attacking Trump relentlessly does not aid Hillary Clinton, and that they are not choosing Hillary Clinton by choosing to be NeverTrump.

All choices have consequences. By supporting Trump, I am responsible for the consequences of a Trump victory — and those consequences could indeed be dire. MORE…

Trump Promises American Greatness

CLEVELAND—Republican presidential candidate Donald John Trump gave a masterful acceptance speech last night as he savaged Hillary Clinton for her seemingly congenital corruption, assailed Barack Obama’s failed policies and the civil unrest he has fomented, and optimistically laid out an ambitious roadmap to the future.

Trump did an admirable job staying on-message.

Science or advocacy?

For almost thirty years, I have taught climate science at three different universities. What I have observed is that students are increasingly being fed climate change advocacy as a surrogate for becoming climate science literate. This makes them easy targets for the climate alarmism that pervades America today.

Earth’s climate probably is the most complicated non-living system one can study, because it naturally integrates astronomy, chemistry, physics, biology, geology, hydrology, oceanography and cryology, and also includes human behavior by both responding to and affecting human activities. Current concerns over climate change have further pushed climate science to the forefront of scientific inquiry.

Full Trump speech: Strong, conservative and impossible not to like

This is what you call a firebrand speech.

Trump’s theme is that America has become weaker, more dangerous and less prosperous under the policies of Obama and Clinton - and he hammers home the point again and again. He cites crime statistics. Economic statistics. Incidents abroad.

Trump Speech One for the Ages

America is a nation of believers, dreamers, and strivers that is being led by a group of censors, critics, and cynics.

Remember: all of the people telling you that you can’t have the country you want, are the same people telling you that I wouldn’t be standing here tonight.  No longer can we rely on those elites in media, and politics, who will say anything to keep a rigged system in place.Donald J. Trump, Republican nominee for president 7/21/16

The speech that Donald J. Trump gave last night was one of the most powerful and important speeches given in American history…in world history.

While the RNC played out, the donkeys took over the Fox house

While most attention was on the captivating histrionics of the 2016 Republican National Convention,  the progressives were taking over Fox News.

‘Ailes is out as Fox News head, Murdoch named acting chief’ (AP, July 21, 2016)

It all went down on July 21, 2016.  What a coincidence!

Good News for Trump: The conservative pundit class hated his speech

Last night, while watching Donald Trump’s speech, I realized two things. The first was that the so-called “conservative pundit class” would hate his address. The second is that this election is now Trump’s to lose.

On the first point, I was proven right before the speech even ended.  A quick glance at Twitter confirmed that the usual cadre of east coast, RNC faithful, talking heads were trashing Trump.  His speech was “too dark,” or it was “negative,” or it was “fear mongering.” Folks like Red State’s Erick Erickson spent the night comparing Trump to Hitler, while others mocked the candidate’s appearance mercilessly.

Notice:There’s a separation between Mosque and State

For those who many not be aware, there is in Canada a separation between mosque and state. Our public school system is secular. As in non-religious affiliated. Except on Ontario where we have a Catholic system that dates back to the BNA Act of 1867. The beauty of Canada is that all religions are treated equally. No one religious group getting better treated than another. We are home to all kinds of houses of worship-Zoroastrian, Baha’i, Catholic, Protestant, Hindi, Sikh, Buddhist, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh Day Adventist, Mennonites, and Jewish. Someone please refresh my memory but have any of these groups ever make demands of Canada to accommodate their needs, their religious belief systems, their food at public institutions?

And if our Charter of rights is being abused to turn our schools into places of worship then we Canadians must fight back. Christians have watched as Christmas plays have been stopped, the Lord’s Prayer removed, reading the Bible prohibited despite the fact that the ethic that underpins Canada comes from the Bible. No religion must be in public school; particularly when it is for one particular religion whose ethic contravenes our ethic.

It’s DNC time and they’re coming to get Hillary

Senator Ted Cruz, booed right off the stage at last night’s Republican National Convention, did not stick the knife in Donald Trump’s back as charged.  Whether he realizes it or not, whether it was intentional or not, the Texas senator firmly stuck the shiv in America’s back.

By letting his ego lead him to Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena he wrote the script for Hillary Clinton’s Big Night at the Democratic National Convention.  Clinton will seize the Cruz RNC moment to advance her trajectory as Obama’s 3rd term in the White House.  We can hear her now: ‘The Republicans are, in essence, a house divided’, ‘they knife each other in the back’, ‘boo their own approved speakers off the stage’, ‘eat their own young’, yada, yada, yada, and bark, bark, bark, screech, screech, screech just for good measure.

Should the Postal Service Handle Your Loans as Well as Your Mail? Elizabeth Warren Thinks So.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is inching closer to eliminating private payday lending with restrictive new rules and, some advocates hope, paving the way for the U.S. Postal Service to take over these banking services.

The agency’s liberal supporters, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., long have wanted to replace the payday lending industry with a government-run alternative. Now, they are pushing to include language in the Democratic Party platform to add banking to the line of services provided by the U.S. Postal Service. —MORE…

30% of Workers Need ‘the Government’s Permission to Work

With nearly one in three American workers needing to acquire an occupational license in order to work, two Republican senators are stepping in with an attempt to alleviate the overreach.

Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ben Sasse, R-Neb., introduced the the ALLOW Act earlier this month. This bill would specifically affect military members, District of Columbia workers, and tour guide services in “national military parks, national battlefields, national battlefield parks … and the National Mall and memorial parks.”—MORE…

Federal judge blocks Michigan ban on straight party voting ... because it’s racist

Recently, Michigan lawmakers passed a measure that would have eliminated the option to vote a straight ticket.  The law would have brought the mitten in line with 39 other states that already eliminated straight-party voting. Basically, under the new system, you’d have to vote for someone, instead of just checking the “R” or “D.”

Well, we have news for you people who live in those 39 other, ugly, vile, states. You’re a bunch of racists!  Fortunately for Michigan, a judge understands how hateful you are, and has blocked the state’s effort to join your foul ranks.

Non-PC Types (Don’t You Love them?) Can Also Be Hypocrites

In a recent article carried in Canada Free Press, I labeled my essay “PC= BS”. According to comments, readers agreed that political correctness, particularly as practiced by pols, has exceeded its shelf life and should be relegated to the rusty dumpster out back.

The controversy surrounding Ted Cruz’ speech at the Republican National Convention prods me to revisit PC and pair it with the adage “there are always two sides (at least) to every story”. Without a dog in the fight . . . I can’t vote because I’m a Canadian citizen with legal permanent residency status in the US (legal meaning I didn’t swim across a body of water to get freebies, including a sneaky vote) . . . I can be objective with this piece, even though I pay my taxes in the US.

UN chief should protest Turkey’s arrest of journalist who addressed UN

GENEVA, UN chief Ban Ki-moon and human rights commissioner Zeid should urgently protest Turkey’s arrest today of journalist and human rights defender Orhan Kemal Cengiz, a possible act of reprisal for his human rights advocacy including his recent visit to the UN Human Rights Council to testify about human rights violations by the Turkish government, said UN Watch, a Geneva based non-governmental human rights group.

As reported in the media, Cengiz and his wife Sibel Hurtas, also a journalist, were detained today at Istanbul’s Atatruk airport, while about to board a flight to London to attend a conference. Hurtas has since been released.

Ted Cruz arrogance - bitterness and judgment just ended his political aspirations

It is official this week.  Donald Trump is the GOP Presidential nominee.  Though we have seen mud slinging for months by the establishment, Senator Ted Cruz and other groups were horrified that Trump has climbed to where he now is.  Trump is in and I and many Americans believe he will take on Hillary and win.

We have seen so far during the GOP convention great support and endorsements for Donald Trump from many national leaders and even former contenders for President.  We have seen strong support and endorsements from the likes of Ben Carson,  Marco Rubio,  Scott Walker,  Chris Christie,  Rudy Giuliani and many more; all major GOP big boys except for Ted Cruz who the GOP, most in attendance and mass media expected and hoped would drop the hatchet and endorse Donald Trump.  It is now vividly known that he did not.

GOP Platform Promotes Life and Free Speech for Kids, Parents and Counselors

CLEVELAND - The Republican National Convention’s platform promotes the right of parents to have their children counseled on topics of sex, identity and homosexuality in unity with their religion. The platform also has a strong call for taxpayers to be freed from funding abortion providers directly and indirectly through healthcare plans that pay for abortions (pg. 37). These two aspects of the GOP platform are a clear opportunity to return to the heart of America, that of free speech, freedom of religion and the right to pursue life and happiness.

Liberty Counsel has been leading the fight to preserve the freedom for minors and their parents to pursue the counseling of their choice in regards to sexuality and unwanted same-sex desires. In New Jersey and California, this organization has litigated for the rights of minors and their parents to continue this type of successful counseling with licensed professionals.
