Under The Far-Left’s Twisted Political Correctness: All Muslims Are To Blame For The Chattanooga Shooting

In the aftermath of the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, in which 21-year-old Dylann Roof is accused of killing nine African-Americans attending a bible study inside the church, many on the far-left were quick to use the tragedy to cast blame on all white people. In an article on Salon.com, writer Chauncey DeVega suggested that all white people must share the blame for the shooting. “White Americans will not have to look in the mirror and ask, ‘what does it feel like to be a problem.’ In the aftermath of recurring mass shooting events, and right-wing domestic terrorism, it is essential that they start to practice such acts of introspection in the interest of the Common Good,” DeVega wrote, after expressing concern that Fox News, an apparent dysfunction in white families, a lack of “sensible and reasonable gun control policies”, a “pathological” violent white culture, and a lack of appropriate role models contributed to the shooting. DeVega continued, “White right-wing domestic terrorism is one of the greatest threats to public safety and security in post 9/11 United… Keep Reading

Uber And Innovation…The Left’s Worst Nightmares

Recently we have been hearing about the evil monstrosity destroying the very  fabric of our society and the welfare of all who inhabit it. This supposed malevolent entity is none other than Uber…a smart phone application that provides private taxi services to its users at competitive prices. Uber has been attacked and threatened by many government jurisdictions worldwide and their government monopoly taxi companies. They claim that Uber is unsafe and dangerous because it is “unregulated” and “unlicensed.” So do these politicians have a point? Is Uber really a danger after all? Of course not – this is all utter nonsense. Uber is far from a threat to our society and the economy. In fact, it is a positive development that has given countless people affordable and efficient transportation options while providing an income to just as many drivers. When the government throws accusations of a new and promising venture being dangerous because it is “unregulated” or “unlicensed,” this is essentially newspeak for “they didn’t pay us our kickback.” Governments across the… Keep Reading

Political Correctness Running Rampant; Boston Museum Cancels “Racist Imperialist” Kimono Attraction

Officials at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston (MFA) canceled a proposed attraction featured a kimono after protesters deemed it a ” latter-day form of racist minstrelsy.” The event, entitled “Kimono Wednesdays”, invited visitors to try-on a museum-owned kimono and pose for a picture in front of Claude Monet’s painting “La Japonaise”, featured the artist’s wife wearing a kimono. One protester held a sign reading, “Try on the kimono, learn what it’s like to be a racist imperialist !!!today!!!” In response to the protests, the MFA proposed a “scaled-back” version of the attraction in which visitors could interact with the kimonos, but not try them on. Apparently, it was not enough to satisfy those who found it offense, as nearly a dozen protesters gathered to hand out flyers and speak to the crowd (at the request of security guards, the protesters did not hand out their flyers). Kimonos were introduced in Japan from a Chinese-style as early as the 5th Century AD. The kimono remained a popular style in Japan until… Keep Reading

The Conservative Case For a Lower Drinking Age

Though it is rarely discussed in conservative or Republican circles, the federal drinking age (a product of the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984) is one of many examples of the federal government’s overreach in the last several decades. As can be expected, given the courts consistent disregard for the constitution, the Supreme Court declared the law constitutional in a 1987 ruling. The act coerced states to raise their drinking ages to the federal minimum through the threat of withholding federal highway funds, among other punitive measures. As a result all 50 states have effectively bended to the will of the central government in acquiescing to their demands. Now the United States stands proudly as having the highest drinking age in the developed world as well as one of the highest levels of binge drinking among teens and young adults. One must only look around to see what a miserable failure this law has been in achieving its supposed goals, especially reducing the level of alcohol consumption among teens… Keep Reading

No Wonder Ted Cruz Hates DC – He’s a Marvel Fan (VIDEO)

Last week I had the chance to interview Senator Ted Cruz backstage after his “Believe Again” event at Drake University in Des Moines. Considering Cruz’s reputation as an avid gamer, I decided to spice things up by challenging him to a chess match during the interview – doing my best to keep the former Princeton debate champ in check, while also hitting him with questions ranging from campaign strategy to comic book wars. It turns out that when he’s not haunting the nightmares of Capitol Hill Democrats, the conservative firebrand enjoys swimming, science fiction, and the irreverent political satire of “Team America: World Police”. Cruz directed harsh criticism at Russian President Vladmir Putin and blamed moderate Republican nominees for the last two presidential losses, pledging to win crossover votes by avoiding the “mushy middle” and reassembling the Reagan coalition. Cruz struck a lighter tone when asked how he planned to rope millennials into his campaign. While he cited his libertarian streak as a draw to younger voters, he also said… Keep Reading

The Debate Bubble

We are a little over one month away from the first Republican Primary debate, and one of the major storylines developing is which candidates will find themselves on the wrong side of the “debate bubble”. The top 10 candidates in an average of five polls will make it into the August 6th Fox News GOP Primary Debate, and right now there are some prominent figures whom it appears will not be on the stage. According to the Real Clear Politics polling average, Rick Perry is the candidate polling in 10th, while Chris Christie and Rick Santorum are on either side of him at 9th and 11th, with Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina being the next two at 8th and 12th. In order of most likely to appear to least, here is the current debate bubble picture: Ted Cruz RCP Polling Average: 8th Place, 4.8% Polls Outside of Top 10: Zero Chance of being left out: 5% Analysis: Cruz has been harmed by the rise of Donald Trump, Ben Carson… Keep Reading

Supposed July 4th Terror Threat Follows Attacks In France, Tunisia And Kuwait

As Americans across the country prepare to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of our nation, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security have issued a bulletin warning of a potential attack on law enforcement officers and the military during the holiday season. “Particularly with the upcoming July 4th holiday, here in the United States the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI continue to communicate with state and local law enforcement about what we know and see,” Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said in a statement. “We are encouraging all law enforcement to be vigilant and prepared. We will also adjust security measures, seen and unseen, as necessary to protect the American people.” The terror alert bulletin comes on the heels of three separate terror attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait In France, police arrested four individuals in connection to a brutal attack in which 35 year-old Yassin Salhi smashed his vehicle through the gate of the Air Products factory outside Lyon, France, hitting several gas canisters which caused an explosion.… Keep Reading
