Anti-Police Rhetoric Leads to Rise In Violent Crime


“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” ~ Newton’s Third Law of Motion


What is it with cops in South Carolina?

They already have one indicted for the murder of a fleeing suspect, and now we are treated to the sight of a resource officer (school cop) flipping a girl out of her desk and wrestling her to the ground. Granted, there are reports of a separate video from another angle showing that the officer was reacting after the girl hit the officer in the face with her fist (and she’s not a small girl), but this type of video is tailor-made to feed into the anti-cop rhetoric being stoked by the likes of Obama and his race-baiting, anti-cop compatriots.

And it may not be equal, but America is seeing there is certainly an opposite reaction to the demonization of law enforcement by the Obama administration and leaders of the major American cities which have been run by liberal Democrats for decades. And that reaction is a deadly one.

Frequently referred to as the “Ferguson effect” in reference to the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting death of a black man, Michael Brown, by a white police officer following a strong-arm robbery, it is the hesitancy of police officers to engage with those possibly engaged in criminal activity, lest they get blame for any resulting violence and face the end of their career, or even prosecution. Police officers are reporting being surrounded by black youths as they get out of their patrol vehicles, recording them even as they taunt them.

Republicans Are Idiots: Benghazi Hearing, Debt Ceiling, and Student Loan Editions

Hillary, Benghazi, and Republican Idiocy

Hillary “won” the Benghazi Committee hearing by (1) not choking on her own tongue and (2) not reprising her “Angry Hillary” persona featured in the past hearing.

Hell, Hillary could’ve walked in, got buck nekkid, had three-way sex with Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin on top of a pile of previously undisclosed classified emails to Ayatollah Khamenei from her homebrew server and Republicans still would’ve lost.

Here’s how a successful hearing would’ve gone:

Secret Memo Reveals Obama’s Effort to Flood Labor Market With Illegals

“The Congress shall have power… To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…throughout the United States;” ~ U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 4

“The biggest problems that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m president of the United States of America.” ~ Presidential candidate Barack Obama, 2008


Barack Obama has always had contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers built into our Constitution, but now that he no longer faces election his utter contempt for any restrictions on his power has been laid bare. He openly subverts the Constitution and smugly dares his feckless Republican opposition to try and stop him, knowing that they rarely will even make the effort, lest they be lectured — again — from the presidential podium.

GOP in Chaos? Have you seen the Democrats lately?

One of the media and their Democratic allies’ favorite narratives is the ubiquitous GOP civil war. Every election, every intra-party disagreement, every primary, it’s all they can talk about.

Republicans are in chaos because there isn’t a consensus House Speaker choice. They’re in chaos because there isn’t a consensus presidential nominee. They’re in chaos because there are significant policy disagreements within the ranks. (So weird that “liberals” expect conformity and unanimity…) You’d think the leftist media’s ideological (and, really, partisan) survival would depend on painting the other side as dysfunctional. There are even entire sections devoted to it at PoliticoSalon, and Huffington Post. But every year of the “GOP civil war”, Republicans control more state legislatures and pickup more House and Senate seats. And have you seen the Democrats lately?

A President Hillary Will Look at Disarming the Citizenry

News broke last week that the Democratic frontrunner, you know her as Hillary, has decided that a program of gun confiscation would be “worth considering on a national level,” specifically one that looks like the Australian manadatory gun confiscation program that President Obama likes to throw out when discussing the nexus of school shootings and the 2nd Amendment.

Federal Attack on Sites Like FanDuel and DraftKings Threatens Tenth Amendment

You may be one of millions who have enjoyed fantasy sports leagues online such as FanDuel and DraftKings. But your right to participate in these sites online might be in danger soon if opposition to them gets their way. There is a growing chorus, in the media and among some politicians close to established gambling interests, for the federal government to regulate, or even put these sites out of business.  Such a move would violate federalism, open the door to more regulation of the Internet and be a glaring example of cronyism.

Major newspapers such as The New York Times and The Boston Globe have been trumpeting the call for federal regulation. The notion that FanDuel and DraftKings are a variation of gambling is echoed by other media outlets as well as some in the brick and mortar gambling industry, who see participation in such fantasy sports leagues online as a threat to their business.

Here’s What Would Be Happening if President Romney Had Bombed a Hospital in Afghanistan


The news out of the Perpetual War on Terror is pretty grim these days. The US military knowingly but “accidentally” bombed a hospital in Afghanistan, killing 22 doctors and patients. Just days later, the president decided not to draw down troops in the country as previously planned, but will instead keep nearly 6,000 of our sons and daughters in the country until at least 2017 when his term ends. At the same time, the inner workings of the president’s drone war, including questionable intel, lax target timeframes, and horrifying collateral damage ratios, have been brought to light by a whistleblower.

But you’d be forgiven for not noticing any of this. While it has been reported in the news media, there has been almost no secondary public reaction. I think that’s entirely because of one factor: Barack Obama won the last election, not Mitt Romney. If Romney had been elected in 2012 and in the year before his reelection campaign had bombed a hospital, decided to keep troops in Afghanistan, and had details of his robot assassin program leaked, things would probably look a little different today.

Profound Ignorance Behind Calls to End 2nd Amendment

The bodies of the Roseburg, Oregon mass shooting victims were not even cold (quite literally) before Obama raced to the cameras demanding more gun control laws, and even suggesting it was time for the U.S. government to confiscate all private firearms. Soon media outlets were flooded talking heads aping Obama’s appeal to ignorance.

Leftist sycophant Linda Valdez, writing in the Arizona Republic, declared it is time to get rid of the 2nd Amendment because it is not working, claiming “It’s killing us. It’s turning grade schools and college campuses into slaughter houses.” She further asserts that “Other rights have reasonable limits that can be discussed and accommodated. The Second Amendment has been turned into the supreme law of the land.”

Liberals condescendingly tell us if we don’t like abortions not to have them, but no such standard applies to gun ownership. They tell us Republicans should stop trying to repeal ObamaCare because is “settled law”, yet they have no such respect for the “settled law” of the 2nd Amendment, enshrined in the Bill of Rights for more than two centuries.

Contrary to the Left’s subtle revisionism, the 2nd Amendment was not included in the Bill of Rights in order to protect the rights of hunters or sports shooters, or even to protect us from the criminal elements of society. It was enshrined in that sacred document to protect us from a far more dangerous entity…our own government.

#DemDebate, or How They Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Being Democratic Socialists


Democrats have been complaining for years that Republicans have moved so far right that they’re not compatible with American democracy anymore. Republicans were fine before, they say, but not anymore! Weak-kneed Republicans who lose primary elections then decide to become media stars by switching to Independents (and eventually Democrats) and claiming “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me”.

[cue thunderous lemming applause]

But no one ever asks how far the Democrats have moved left. In their first primary debate of the 2016 contest Tuesday night, we may finally have gotten the answer. They’re all Democratic Socialists now, and proud of it (with the possible exception of Jim Webb).

A Challenge to the GOP from Bernie Sanders: Put Up or Shut Up on Capitalism

Originally published at International Liberty - Ed.

While his policy ideas are horrifying, Bernie Sanders’ campaign is the source of some amusement.

He claims to represent a different vision, but his voting record according to the National Taxpayers Union is virtually identical to the ratings received by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton when they were in the Senate.

He’s not even a real socialist, at least if we use the technical definition of this poisonous ideology, which is based on government ownership of the means of production. That being said, Democratic operatives such as Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz sound like fools on TV because they don’t even know the difference between genuine socialism and big-government redistributionism.
