Republican candidate targets

minority vote, Democrats in


WASHINGTON – It’s not unusual for Donald Trump to do things Republican presidential candidates of the past haven’t done.

But his appearance in Milwaukee Tuesday night was, well, unprecedented in a different way from what he has said and done in 2016.

Trump made an all-out, coherent bid for the inner-city vote, invading the inner sanctum and holy ground of the Democratic Party for 50 years.

“Tonight, I am going to talk about how to make our communities safe again from crime and lawlessness,” he said, first standing behind police in a city ravaged for days by rioting and violence over a police shooting that, if the facts laid out by law enforcement are true, does not appear to be a violation of policy, let alone the law.

He said the mayhem in Milwaukee is “an assault on the right of all citizens to live in security and peace.”

“Law and order must be restored. It must be restored for the sake of all, but most especially the sake of those living in the affected communities,” he added. “The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods. It is their jobs, their homes, their schools and communities which will suffer as a result. There is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct. Crime and violence is an attack on the poor, and will never be accepted in a Trump administration.”

He called for more police in America’s poorest communities and more effective policing.

“Just like Hillary Clinton is against the miners, she is against the police,” he said. “You know it, and I know it. Those peddling the narrative of cops as a racist force in our society – a narrative supported with a nod by my opponent – share directly in the responsibility for the unrest in Milwaukee, and many other places within our country. They have fostered the dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America.”

The pipeline’s approved. Environmentalists are angry.

The pipeline’s approved.

Environmentalists are angry.


By Marita Noon

Final federal approval for what is being called the “new Keystone” came from the Army Corps of Engineers on July 26 — allowing the pipeline to move forward. The 1,168-mile long Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), also called the Bakken Pipeline, is comparable in length to the Keystone XL. It will cross four states and carry 450,000 barrels of oil a day from North Dakota to a transfer terminal in Illinois where it will connect with other pipelines and be taken to refineries.

The $3.8 billion dollar project has pitted environmentalists against economic interests.

During the Keystone fight, outspoken opponent Jane Kleeb, founder of Bold Nebraska, said: “In America we should be focused on making sure that the oil in North Dakota, Oklahoma, and others, in Montana, that that oil is getting to market.” Now, thanks to DAPL, America’s oil will have a safer way to get “to market” — freeing up as many as 750 train cars a day to transport corn, soybeans, and grain. However, as soon as DAPL came on the scene, they moved the marker, and environmental opposition was mounted. Bold Iowa, a group that shares a website with Kleeb’s Bold Nebraska, says it has members willing to risk arrest in “nonviolent protests.” They are also training monitors to report any environmental violations or hazards.

FBI’s Comey is complicit in Clinton email scandal

FBI’s Comey is complicit in Clinton

email scandal

Should James B. Comey, Jr. continue as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Is he professionally compromised? Does Mr. Comey continue to enjoy the “special trust and confidence” of the American people, the rank-and-file of the FBI, and the thousands of government employees holding security clearances and access to classified information?

On Tuesday, July 5, 2016, Mr. Comey conducted a fifteen-minute press briefing detailing the elements of the crime of mishandling national defense information, specifically Title 18 U.S.C. §793(f) and the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of an outlaw email server.

Comey provided the following detailed examples of how Mrs. Clinton violated the law: “110 e-mails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information.”

House Bill Would Strengthen Welfare Work Requirement

House Bill Would Strengthen

Welfare Work Requirement

Faith Vander Voort / May 27, 2016

Rep. Jim Jordan introduced a bill Thursday that would reform the Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

“Welfare programs are meant to be a temporary safety net, but they have become a permanent way of life for millions of Americans,” Jordan, R-Ohio, said in a statement. “Instead of giving impoverished families and individuals a helping hand, the current system penalizes positive steps toward self-sufficiency.”

According to a press release from Jordan’s office, H.R. 5360, the Welfare Reform and Upward Mobility Act, is based on Maine’s successful reforms and the welfare reforms of 1996.

I guess this is why they call it the Grand Old Party and not the Grown-Up Party.

The reaction of so many leading Republicans to the impending presidential nomination represents the most childish temper tantrum in American political history.

Let’s start with Mitt Romney, the bumbling incompetent who managed to lose what everyone thought was a winnable election against Barack Obama in 2012.

There are reports that Romney has been consorting with closet left-winger Bill Kristol about a third-party candidacy against Trump this fall.

There are only two kinds of people who talk about third-party candidacies: Really stupid people and really smart people.

The really stupid people actually believe the third-party candidate can defeat the major-party candidates in the presidential race.

This has happened exactly never.

Executive Actions on Immigration goes to Supreme Court Today

House GOP Takes Fight Against

Obama’s Executive Actions on

Immigration to Supreme Court


Leah Barkoukis | Apr 18, 2016

House Republicans are finally getting their day in court to make the case against President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration.

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in United States v. Texas on Monday, a case that challenges the constitutionality of Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program.

While lawmakers routinely file amicus briefs in cases before the high court, this is the first instance in which the House authorized taking sides in the case. The House did that on March 17 by passing a resolution in a partly-line 234-186 vote.

Attorney Paul Clement will represent the House pro bono in the case, which originated in Texas. He’ll have 15 minutes to make the House’s arguments. While Clement will represent the House, Democrats aren’t on board and voted against the resolution.

Cruz, Sanders and the road after Wisconsin

Cruz, Sanders and the road after


By Newt Gingrich – – Wednesday, April 6, 2016

Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders both had very big wins on Tuesday in Wisconsin.

Cruz had the bigger victory. He won more delegates and, in a three-way race, by as big a margin as Sanders did in a two-way race.

The campaign season is weakening the frontrunners in both parties at a time when the favorites should be consolidating their support.

A large number of Republicans say they would not vote for Trump.

A large number of Sanders supporters say they would not vote for Clinton.

The Wisconsin victory will help both insurgents, Cruz and Sanders, raise more money.

In Sanders’ case, he is already out-raising Clinton and this victory will translate into even more online donors sending even more money. The internet is allowing non-establishment candidates to gather resources even if the major donors refuse to help them. Without the stream of $27 donations pouring in over the Internet, Sanders could never have sustained his effort to defeat Clinton.

Wisconsin fatally undermined John Kasich as the alternative to Cruz to stop Trump. Kasich did not win a single delegate in an upper-Midwest state which should have been tailormade for the governor of Ohio.

The news media will increasingly ignore Kasich. His donors will dry up. He can stubbornly continue the fight (as I did for a good while in 2012), but he can’t fight his way back into contention.

Cruz and Trump each face big challenges.

America is at a Crossroads Again

America is at a Crossroads Again

Written by Alexandra Mark    

Before an adoring crowd, and in a whimsical but discordant setting resembling an ancient Greek temple, candidate Barack Obama proclaimed: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” The crowd went wild! Obama not only won the election, but his words proved to be prophetic. America is a fundamentally transformed country, and Obama has brought the process of change to a point that actually undermines the foundation upon which this country rests. This is not the America that George Washington envisioned in his first Inaugural Address – to which Mr. Obama would likely add: “Good riddance!”

In those years Obama was the welcome antidote for millions of Americans who hungered for change – mostly from George Bush. Moreover, America was going to elect her first black president; America’s collective guilt would be assuaged and racism would end.

By the power of his oratory alone, Mr. Obama sold the elixir of hope to a thirsty nation: “We are the ones we have been waiting for,” he boasted. “We are at the moment when the rise of the oceans begins to slow and our planet begins to heal.” And the crowd roared its approval. The sheer drama electrified them.

Both Freedom & Fairness Must Be Maintained

Both Freedom & Fairness Must Be

Maintained for a Democratic

Republic to Continue

By  / 

“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.” —Thomas Jefferson

Two Kinds

There are two kinds of government in the world: 1) rule by the few, or an oligarchy (which generally vests power-wielding authority in a dictator) and 2) rule by the people, or a republic (where the people govern).  The alternative to these two fundamental kinds of government would be no government at all, or anarchy.

The Spectrum

The political spectrum extends from 100% total government control to a free-for-all of 100% anarchy.  In terms of power, this would mean going from 100% government to 0% government.  The proper midpoint between tyranny and mobocracy is the republican middle, where there is law, but only law which is made by the people and respects the natural rights of the minority, according to the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
