VW Jetta gets new motivation for 2016

Volkswagen’s Jetta was a terrific car before the 2016 model year, but the addition of a brand new engine creates an even more powerful reason to give the car a look if you’re shopping in this market niche.

How Bernie Sanders Sold His Soul to the Left

Win or lose, the Sanders campaign has its story. Bernie Sanders is the authentic candidate; the unapologetic progressive who pushes the left’s agenda without worrying about offending anyone.

Bernie doesn’t pander. Just look at him glaring into the camera, angrily delivering the same “smash capitalism” stump speech and then waiting for the local college students to take selfies with him. You may disagree with him. But he’s authentic, a curmudgeon who says whatever he really thinks.

Hillary says she’ll force employers to ‘review pay fairness’

If Donald Trump said this, he would be in for a barrage of criticism (and rightly so) for spewing nonsense about things he would do as president that have nothing to do with the actual powers of the presidency. But let Hillary say it? I guess this just falls under the category of Clintons-always-lie-so-who-cares, but dang:

Why Do Wasps Attack?

Why do wasps become more aggressive after you kill one of the hive members? The answer is the same reason why you should be wary of bees that smell like bananas.

Planned Parenthood Caught Telling Mothers Aborted Babies Used to Treat, Find Cure for Cancer

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is under fire again for the organization’s controversial fetal harvesting consent form given to women considering abortion that falsely claims aborted babies’ tissue has been used to “treat and find a cure” for diseases such as AIDS, cancer and diabetes.

The controversial form was reviewed during a hearing of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives held on March 2 to examine the bioethics of fetal tissue harvesting and experimentation.

“Research using the blood from pregnant women and tissue that has been aborted has been used to treat and find a cure for such diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and AIDS,” begins the language on a copy of the form.

Bernie and Hillary are both right. Neither is qualified to be President.

It’s rare that Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders can unite Republicans in universal agreement. Usually, we point out the flaws in their beliefs, ridicule their terrible policies, and do our best to expose their incoherence.  Not today.  Today, we applaud their clarity.

First, Hillary accused Bernie of campaigning on issues he doesn’t understand and making promises he can’t keep. She was pressed on whether Bernie is qualified.  She didn’t specifically say that she thought Sanders was unqualified, but she also refused to say that he was. Instead, she argued that the core issue of his entire campaign is based on a fallacy and that he doesn’t understand how to get anything done.  If you translate the dodgy Clinton-speak, that basically means “no, he’s not qualified.”

Nightmare scenario: Bernie Sanders as Hillary’s vice president

If Bernie Sanders—or any other socialist/marxist/communist—had the gall to make a run for president in the Cold War generation, there would have been open revolution on the streets.

Up against Hillary Clinton for Democrat presidential nomination,  reprobate Sanders has zero chance of getting the nod.  But if Hillary is sworn in as U.S. president, with Sanders as her vice president, what can be done to stop her?

Risk of Collapse at Jesus’ Tomb Unites Rival Christians

JERUSALEM — It was a typical day at the shrine around what many believe is the tomb of Jesus in Jerusalem’s Old City. A Greek Orthodox choir sang inside a room facing the baroque structure. But the voices were drowned out when chanting Armenian priests and monks circling the shrine raised theirs.

“Sometimes they punch each other,” Farah Atallah, a church guard wearing a fez, observed with a shrug.

Mr. Atallah is a seasoned witness to the rivalries among the Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox and Roman Catholic communities that jealously share — and sometimes spar over — what they consider Christianity’s holiest site, inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Bernie Gets One Right!

Senator Bernie Sanders, America’s self-proclaimed socialist and leading ABH (Anyone but Hillary!) proponent, frequently uses political language that can accurately be described as mythical, exaggerated, truth-challenged, and terribly biased spin, peppered liberally with outright lies.  His truth-a-phobia is second only to the congenital lying that permeates every cell and molecule of the lying Hillary Rodham Clinton herself.

Migrants Ushered In From Muslim Countries Double Those From Europe

The United States issues twice as many green cards to migrants from Muslim-majority countries than from Europe, adding to a Middle Eastern migrant population in the country that is one of the fastest growing demographics.

From 2009 to 2013, the U.S. issued 680,000 green cards to migrants from Muslim countries, more than twice the approximately 270,000 green cards issued to migrants from European countries. Green cards entitle migrants to legal permanent residency in the country and work authorization, federal benefits, and the chance to apply for citizenship.

The numbers are illustrated in a chart below by the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. If laws are not changed, the U.S. is expected to issue another 680,000 green cards in the following five-year period.

Collapse of commodity prices exposes longstanding underperformance of Ontario and Atlantic Canada

TORONTO—The resilience of the Canadian economy during the global recession and its strong performance post-recession—which was largely rooted in the resource-intensive provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador, and British Columbia—masked weakness in Central and Atlantic Canada, particularly Ontario, finds a new study published today by the Fraser Institute, an independent non-partisan Canadian policy think-tank.

“The fall in commodity prices and the ensuing economic slowdown in Canada’s resource-intensive provinces laid bare the weaknesses of provinces such as Ontario and New Brunswick, prompting a crucial question—which provinces will propel Canada’s economic growth?” said Livio Di Matteo, Fraser Institute senior fellow, professor of economics at Lakehead University, and co-author of Comparing Recent Economic Performance in Canada and the United States: A Provincial and State Level Analysis.
