‘Equipay’ App Splits Dinner Bills According to Race and Gender

From: breitbart.com,  by Allum Bokhari,  on Feb 24, 2016,  see the article HERE. It’s a huge dilemma for progressives: on the one hand, it’s terribly patriarchal for a man to pay for a woman’s dinner. On the other hand, the gender pay gap of feminist mythology holds that women only make 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man. So isn’t the failure to pay just another contribution to structural sexism? Equipay, a new app for Android and the iPhone has a solution. Developed by San Francisco-based “comedian” Luna Malbroux, the app divides bills between dinner guests according to their race and … Continue reading

Calais France: What Is Really Happening In ‘The Jungle’

From Allen West: Perhaps we can take the spotlight off of Trump for a moment, and think about what’s going on elsewhere. Right now, Calais, a major port city in northern France is overrun with refugees. It is the principal ferry crossing point between England and France,  near the Channel Tunnel, and now they have thousands of migrants living in a camp known as the ‘Jungle.’ While terrorists are still undoubtedly slipping through the cracks due to the impossible task of vetting refugees, Europeans are finding that to be the least of their worries. As is the case with immigration, there’s a … Continue reading

Rick Perry Cleared of Second Felony Charge

From AP:   Texas’ highest criminal court tossed the second and final felony charge against former Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday, likely ending a case the Republican says helped sink his short-lived 2016 presidential bid. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals dismissed the abuse-of-power charge, which was filed after Perry threatened – and then carried out – a veto of state funding for a group of public corruption prosecutors after the Democratic head of the unit refused to resign. A lower appeals court dismissed the other charge, coercion by a public servant, in July. The longest-serving governor in Texas history, … Continue reading

NBC Reporter Goes to Gun Range

This is too funny for words. A clueless MSNBC reporter decides to report from a gun range. Guess what? It’s noisy in there! Whoda thunkit? A gun range – where (gasp) those evil guns could be on a rampage – shooting and stuff! And none of them shot him! And no one shot each other! It’s a MIRACLE! Wouldn’t you have liked to be in the meeting when the show’s producers decided that it was a good idea to report from inside a gun range? That’s ample proof of the “brain power” that resides at MSNBC. At least he was smart … Continue reading

Trump’s Latest Childish Insult of Ted Cruz

From Red State: Well, the Biff Tannen 2016 campaign continued apace today, featuring Donald Trump and his supporters, who all appear to be of the opinion that it’s okay to nominate a bad movie caricature to the office of President of the United States.  I’ve met much tougher people than Ted Cruz, he’s like a little baby compared to some of the people I have to deal with. He’s like a little baby. Soft, weak, little baby by comparison. But for lying, he’s the best I’ve ever seen. Donald Trump has no idea about any of the basic facts of … Continue reading

The ‘Itching Ears’ of Trump Followers

From: townhall.com,  by Cal Thomas,  on Feb 23, 2016,  see the article HERE. Garnet92’s editorial comment: Unless things change dramatically, I’ll be holding my nose AGAIN this year. It looks bleak for my guy (Ted Cruz) and I’m not ready to commit to a “sloppy second” choice yet, I’ll wait awhile longer and see how things shake out. In the meantime, I’m trying my best to understand why so many people have adopted Donald Trump as their new messiah. I’m still soliciting Trump supporters to honestly explain WHY they believe everything he says without question (when they haven’t afforded the … Continue reading

Federal Judge Has Bad News For Hillary

From The Analytical Economist at AllenWest.com: “Emailgate” hasn’t gone as planned for Hillary. After trying to play this off as a “phony” scandal early on, her lies started unraveling quickly. She told us there was no classified information sent through her private server – but we have a few hundred emails to prove that wrong. Even the staunchest Democrat who wants to try to write this off as a Republican attack on Hillary has to ponder why the FBI is investigating the situation. The latest development in the case doesn’t bode well for Hillary. As the Washington Post reports: A federal … Continue reading

Trump’s Exceptionalism Explained

From: politico.com,  by Jack Shafer,  on Feb 19, 2016,  see the article HERE. Donald Trump doesn’t cross the line. He erases it. Time and again Mr. Mouth Almighty has recklessly insulted, defamed, mocked and affronted his fellow citizens. He has instigated stupid feuds and is now quarreling with the pope. He has gaffed repeatedly on policy matters. He has indulged himself in nutty conspiracy theories. And—how to put this delicately?—he has lied like a con artist, and when caught has squirted ink into the water to obfuscate. Two weeks ago, he denied having called John McCain a “loser,” which he … Continue reading

The Night Watchman

This is a must read as it will enlighten you as to the workings of our government. A Fairy Tale?? Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job. Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies. Then Congress said, “How will … Continue reading

Trump Threatens Donor Who Contributed Against Him

From Ben Shapiro at The Daily Wire: Donald Trump would likely be a better president than Hillary Clinton. That isn’t saying much, since a flaming bag of dog excrement would clearly be better than Hillary Clinton. It ain’t close. But Trump would still be a disaster area. He’s a petty tyrant seeking power for personal aggrandizement. He made that clear this morning by threatening the Ricketts family, the owners of the Chicago Cubs, over their support for Our Principles PAC, a super PAC run by former Mitt Romney advisor Katie Packer with the goal of beating Trump. Trump tweeted: Now, … Continue reading

Judge Nap on Apple vs. FBI

From Fox News Insider: Family members of San Bernardino victims are calling on Apple to unlock an iPhone that once belonged to one of the two terrorists who killed 14 people at an office Christmas party in December. Google and Microsoft have agreed that Apple should not create a backdoor to the iPhone, as the FBI has asked. The Justice Department filed a motion Friday to compel Apple to go along with the request. FBI Director James Comey just released a statement on the matter: The San Bernardino litigation isn’t about trying to set a precedent or send any kind of … Continue reading

5 numbers that explain why Trump won South Carolina

From: politico.com,  by Steven Shepard,  on Feb 20, 2016,  see the article HERE. Donald Trump’s South Carolina coalition was comprised of downscale voters who want a candidate who “tells it like it is” to bring change to Washington. That’s according to voters surveyed by exit pollsters as they left precincts throughout the state on Saturday — giving Trump a resounding victory over Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Rubio was boosted by Gov. Nikki Haley, whose final-week endorsement carried the Florida senator into an apparent second-place ahead of Cruz. Cruz, meanwhile, was buoyed by the most conservative voters, but he failed … Continue reading

Rubio: Romney 2.0

From: politico.com,  by Mike Zapler and Anna Palmer,  on Feb 20, 2016,  see the article HERE. The Florida senator and 2012 GOP standard-bearer are largely in sync on policy. But Rubio and his backers believe his life story and storytelling talent make all the difference.  GREENVILLE, S.C. — At every campaign stop, Marco Rubio calls it “the biggest lie in American politics” — the notion that Republicans are the party of the super wealthy, and hopelessly out of touch with the working class and minorities. The party, in other words, that Democrats eviscerated with Mitt Romney at the helm in … Continue reading

Is it Harmless Curiosity or Casing Jewish Synagogues?

From CBS Miami: South Florida’s Jewish community is on edge over the odd behavior of two women. “These two people came into one of the temples in the community. One, if not two, walked inside the temple,” said Yona Lunger of the two Middle Eastern women in question. A police report shows two women pulled up in silver Nissan Altima to Beth Israel at 770 W 40th St. The driver remained silent while the passenger was standing just outside the car. The woman that was standing outside the car asked, “Did you have services already?” The people they engaged replied, … Continue reading

The Dems Are Responsible, but the Republicans Will Be Blamed

By The Analytical Economist at Allen West: It’s been said that if liberals didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all. This couldn’t be better illustrated following the death of Antonin Scalia, where Obama is making an unprecedented move to nominate a new Justice this close to an election. Many have drawn attention to Chuck Schumer and other congressional Democrats, who vehemently opposed George W. Bush from nominating a new Justice in 2007. But the hypocrisy dates even further back than that. As the Daily Caller reports: The Democrat-controlled Senate passed a resolution in 1960 preventing a recess appointment, … Continue reading

A Sunday Feel Good Story – A Toddler and a Cop

In early February, Officer Norris was waiting to testify in a hearing when he saw a very rambunctious two year old waiting with her father (who also had a court case) in the lobby. When it came time for the father’s case to be heard he tried to take his daughter into court with him, but kids aren’t allowed in the courtroom and the father didn’t know what to do. That’s when Officer Norris stepped up. You’ll see from the court surveillance video that the little girl took to Officer Norris as he walked her around, getting drinks of water and treats from … Continue reading

Police Captain’s Viral Threat to Gang Members

From Fox News Insider: A Louisiana police captain’s extremely blunt message to local gang members is quickly going viral. Capt. Clay Higgins directed his warning at the Gremlins gang, explaining that ten suspected members have been arrested, but seven remain at-large. The fugitives are accused of committing murders, thefts and drug-related crimes. In many cases, however, victims declined to cooperate with police. Higgins warned the wanted gang members that they will be brought to justice. “If you raise your weapon to a man like me, we’ll return fire with superior fire. I’ll meet you on solid ground anytime, anywhere, light or … Continue reading

Hillary: ‘I’ve Always Tried’ To Tell the Truth, ‘Don’t Believe’ I’ve Ever Lied Or Ever Will

From: breitbart.com,  by Ian Hanchett,  on Feb 18, 2016,  see the article HERE. Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that she has “always tried to” tell the truth and doesn’t “believe” she’s ever lied or ever will in an interview on Thursday’s “CBS Evening News.” After she was asked about Jimmy Carter’s pledge that he wouldn’t lie to the American people, Hillary said, “Well, I have to tell you, I have tried, in every way, I know how literally, from my years as a young lawyer, all the way through my time as secretary of state to … Continue reading

Trump, Lies, and Bankruptcy

From: nationalreview.com,  by Kevin D. Williamson,  on Feb 16, 2016,  see the article HERE. A pattern emerges. Donald Trump is a habitual liar, and the thing about habitual liars is that they lie habitually. In a testy exchange with former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Trump insisted that he’d never gone bankrupt, and that claims to the contrary are a lie. That’s the Trump magic right there: Lying about your business history is one thing, lying that your critics are lying about it is another. Trump has a peculiar way of speaking about bankruptcy: He has a deep aversion to the … Continue reading
