Federal Regulations Stifle American Energy, Hurt Economic Growth

Every year, the Obama Administration piles more and more regulations on states and American businesses. The 2016 update of the Mercatus Center’s Federal Regulation and State Enterprise (FRASE) index shows the incredible proliferation of federal regulation on the lives of ordinary Americans. Nevertheless, Americans continue to drive an energy revolution with substantial domestic benefits. Energy is the lifeblood of the economy, and government policies should be crafted to allow domestic production to flourish—not restrict it for political reasons.

Where’s the Scrutiny of Hillary Clinton on Abortion?

GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is taking a beating from the press over his flip-flops on abortion. But the leading Democrat candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, has escaped serious scrutiny over her extreme position that would seem to prohibit any restrictions on the procedure.

Trump regularly compares his flip-flops to how Ronald Reagan changed on the issue. Of course, Reagan changed in a much more dramatic and thoughtful way. He actually authored a major essay, 3,600 words in length, which was made into a small book, “Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation.”

10,000 millionaires abandon France over Islam fears

As we’ve argued before; when a country fails to solve its problems, those who are capable of leaving will do so. There’s no reason for a person of reasonable wealth to stay in a nation that’s making his or her life miserable. That’s not rocket science; it’s just simple economics.

So, when you look at a nation like France, you might assume that the ugly trifecta of high taxation, high cost of living, and radical Islam is incentivizing the departure of the financially stable.  ...And you’d be right - if you placed the emphasis on radical Islam.

Another Trump scandal - Women’s rights and abortion

It is nauseatingly predictable in the compromised society in which we now live. Presidential front runner Donald Trump is now demonized and grossly misrepresented regarding his views on abortion.  This week we saw the bait-and-switch entrapment questions from Chris Matthews, sounding like he was being spoon fed from the Hillary and abortion machine.

U.S. Secret Service & World Media Liable; Not Trump & Israeli Shooter of Terrorist

Americans, Israelis, and fair minded people all over the globe should be outraged at the U.S. Secret Service and the mainstream media, not at Donald Trump in America or the Israeli medic who shot the terrorist in Israel.

In America, it has already been established that the Secret Service failed to prevent the reporter Michelle Fields from reaching and even touching the Republican frontrunner for the presidency of the United States. So the Secret Service should be condemned, and Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, should be hailed as a hero for reaching Fields where the Secret Service failed and by effectively preventing her from being in a position to potentially assault the candidate by Corey’s restraint in grabbing and diverting her arm rather than tackling her or using a weapon to stop her.

Guilty Until Proven Innocent

Bona fide Fellow Americans:

Only in the “Canada Free Press” can True Americans get True “Freedom of the Press” while America’s “1%”, “Establishment,” “Racketeers” and “Ruling Class” suppress the Truth and pull the strings of their media puppets.

Arrest George Soros

It is time to hold radical ringleader George Soros to account for the growing civil unrest that he has helped to foment in this presidential election cycle and his efforts to shut down Donald Trump rallies using physical force and intimidation.

Soros, the billionaire speculator, is the preeminent funder of the activist Left in America, which means he is the Number One funder of the domestic terrorism that is part and parcel of the Left.

Google Chromecast helps turn dumb TV’s into smart ones

Smart TV’s are all the rage these days - it seems as if that’s practically all you can buy - but what if you have a more old fashioned TV that doesn’t come with a bunch of apps built in, yet you still want to exploit the capabilities of the online (or merely networked) world?

Toyota’s biggest get updated for 2016

Are Toyota’s two biggest vehicles too big, or just right?  It depends what you’re looking for. One - the Tundra - is a full sized pickup meant to compete head to head with the likes of the Ford F-150 and Nissan Titan. The other - Avalon - is a full sized family sedan that offers a lot of room and a lot of other nice stuff, not including a real fun to drive factor.

Michelle Field’s Agenda

What a concept!  People who actually research before they blame someone!  I salute you. 

It’s refreshing to see journalism that doesn’t have an agenda.  I would point out one thing.  If Michelle Fields didn’t want to be touched, then she shouldn’t have been in that bone crushing crowd.  Also she should have afforded the same courtesy to Mr. Trump by not touching him!

How Putin is out-maneuvering Obama in Syria

In what has become a monthly ritual, the United Nations Security Council received a briefing on March 30th regarding the very dire humanitarian conditions in war-torn Syria. Stephen O’Brien, the Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, delivered the latest assessment. He noted as positive developments a respite in violence in some parts of the country since the cessation of hostilities came into effect one month ago, and some limited progress on access for the delivery of humanitarian aid to besieged and hard-to-reach areas. However, he said that many of the 4.6 million people in need “still remain outside our reach due to insecurity and obstructions by the parties.”

Even in death Rob Ford remains Toronto’s ‘Mayor for Life’

Even death cannot deprive thousands of mournful citizens of the most beloved mayor in Toronto history, Mayor Rob Ford, guaranteed immortality in the Ford Nation movement.

Respected as a ‘Man of the People’ long before ever becoming mayor for his admirable penny-pinching ways as a city councillor, Rob Ford was what every politician should be but isn’t, a vanguard of the public purse.

Pittsburgh anchor fired for ‘racist’ Facebook post . . . but was it really?

A Pittsburgh news anchor named Wendy Bell, a veteran of 18 years at WTAE-TV, is now unemployed. Not because she did a bad job as a news anchor. As far as anyone can see, she didn’t. In fact, it had nothing to do with anything she did on the job.

You know where this is going, right? Bell held forth on her Facebook page about a recent local crime, and was quite unrestrained in expressing her frustration and anguish over what had happened - especially because she felt pretty confident it would follow a pattern she’d seen many times before. This would be a pattern that would relate to young men growing up with no fathers and having so many strikes against them before they even start their lives that something like this was almost inevitable. And oh yes, Bell acknowledged, this is particularly an affliction of the black community.

Western Europe’s “Headache”

The invasion of Europe by young military-age Muslim men from the Middle East and Africa has pushed one Western European “headache” to the back burner – the Romanian gypsies, with their nomadic lifestyle and “criminality,” petty theft, pickpocketing, and begging around train stations and major tourist attractions; these gypsies have irritated the European Union bureaucrats and the selectively multicultural Europeans.

In an effort to combat any ethnic discrimination, the Romanian government passed H.G. 1194 on December 12, 2001 which established the “attributes, components, organization, and functioning of the National Council to Combat Discrimination. The law established heavy penalties for anyone who attacks someone else on the basis of ethnicity. The main focus of the law was to prevent the proliferation of anti-Semitism and anti-gypsy sentiments. Insulting, humiliating, or disadvantaging any ethnic group is strictly forbidden.”

Liberty Counsel Offers to Defend North Carolina Law

ORLANDO, FL—Liberty Counsel sent a letter yesterday to the North Carolina House and Senate offering pro bono services in defense of the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act. The Act recently was signed into law by Governor Pat McCrory. However, Attorney General Cooper has refused to defend it.

The Act was enacted after the city of Charlotte opened women’s public bathrooms to men and now declares that state law overrides all local ordinances concerning wages, employment, and public accommodations. Thus, like the majority of states, the law requires statewide uniformity of nondiscrimination laws.

“Liberty Counsel was encouraged to see the resolve and fortitude of the North Carolina General Assembly and Governor McCrory in enacting this Act. However, the Attorney General’s unjustified refusal is a disturbing commentary on modern legal ethics. He is clearly putting his political ambitions above the law,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.

The Least Transparent Administration in History

For all of President Obama’s assurances that his administration would be the most transparent in history, it has been anything but. Yet the mainstream media fail to cover, again and again, evidence of a corrupt administration hiding regulations from Congress and controlling the press.

President Obama continues to lecture the press on how to do its job properly, criticizing the depth of reporting on the election. “I think the electorate would be better served if we spent less time focused on the he said/she said back-and-forth of our politics,” said President Obama on March 28 at the 2016 Toner Prize ceremony. “If I say that the world is round and someone else says it’s flat, that’s worth reporting, but you might also want to report on a bunch of scientific evidence that seems to support the notion that the world is round,” he continued. “And that shouldn’t be buried in paragraph five or six of the article.”

Surrendering to ISIS is the Only Way to Defeat It

If you’re keeping score, freeing Islamic terrorists from Gitmo does not play into the hands of ISIS. Neither does bringing Syrians, many of whom sympathize with Islamic terrorists, into our country. And aiding the Muslim Brotherhood parent organization of ISIS does not play into the Islamic group’s hands.

However if you use the words “Islamic terrorism” or even milder derivatives such as “radical Islamic terrorism”, you are playing into the hands of ISIS. If you call for closer law enforcement scrutiny of Muslim areas before they turn into Molenbeek style no-go zones or suggest ending the stream of new immigrant recruits to ISIS in San Bernardino, Paris or Brussels, you are also playing into the hands of ISIS.
