Victor Davis Hanson: Out-Of-Control Big Government Is Destroying Us

Victor Davis Hanson: Out-Of-Control Big Government Is Destroying Us:

Social observers from Aristotle and Juvenal to James Madison and George Orwell have all warned of the dangers of out-of-control government. Lately, we have seen plenty of proof that they were frighteningly correct. The Environmental Protection Agency spilled 3 million gallons of toxic sludge into a tributary of the Animas River in Colorado. The stinky yellow flume of old mine waste -- rife with cancer-causing mercury and arsenic -- threatens to

Christie on Hillary’s Email Jokes: ‘Her Arrogance is Breathtaking’

Christie on Hillary’s Email Jokes: ‘Her Arrogance is Breathtaking’:



Monday on the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential candidate Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) slammed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton for joking about deleting the emails from her tenure of Secretary of State and wiping her server clean. This weekend, Clinton joked that she likes using Snapchat because the program makes the messages disappear, to which Christie said, “Her arrogance is breathtaking. It’s breathtaking. Mrs. Clinton, this is not about politics. Why don’t you just answer this question? Why’d you have your own private email server? I worked for the federal government for seven years as a US Attorney. It was made clear to all us when we walked in the door, official business is done on your official email account.” He added, “So, this is not about politics. Answer the question. All this other stuff, it’s the typical approach of the Clintons, where when they’re in trouble, they blame

Abortion Is About ‘Women’s Health’ Like The Civil War Is About ‘States’ Rights’

Abortion Isn’t Health Care
So before we go along with this Orwellian attempt to describe dismembering a fetus in the womb as “women’s health care,” let’s get something straight. Abortion is about “women’s health care” the way that the Civil War was said to be about “states’ rights.” It’s a convenient distraction from the moral atrocity that defines the conflict, designed to make those who take the odious position seem justified.
No genuinely objective person thinks it’s accurate or fair to say the recent attempts to deny Planned Parenthood tax dollars is an attack on women’s health.

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC’s Chuck Todd reacted to his trip to the Iowa State Fair by admitting that he “was stunned at how many-how easily it was to find these Democrats willing” to criticize Hillary Clinton over her e-mail scandal among other issues.

This is what happens when the elite step out of their bubble. - which they claim not to have, but it's clear they are not aware of what is really going on in the country. 

Obama's Shameful Neglect of the Persecution of Christians

The below article is an interview given to CNS News by John Sununu. It concerns the inexplicable ignoring of the plight of Middle East Christians by the Obama administration.

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/lauretta-brown/sununu-obama-incapable-acknowledging-reality-ethnic-cleansing-middle
"The U.S. has admitted 727 Christians and 4,205 Muslims from Iraq and 23 Christians and 812 Muslims from Syria since Jan. 1, according to the Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System."
Don't those numbers say it all? How can the United States, which is supposed to be the world's champion when it comes to human rights, close its eyes to the worst humanitarian crime going on in the world today?
There is your answer. We have a president who simply doesn't care. He doesn't care about anti-Semitism, he doesn't care about the Jewish state of Israel, and he doesn't care about the plight of persecuted Christians. Kind of makes you wonder, doesn't it?

WELL, SOMEBODY SHOULD: Pakistani Brit Calls Out Lefty Indulgence of Islamism.

Maajid Nawaz is a sharply dressed, cosmopolitan European campaigner against “theocracy” and patriarchal society, so you’d think that he’d win plaudits from the left. Instead he’s been attacked in the pages of the Guardian—because he’s a Brit of Pakistani descent campaigning against Islamic radicalism. Somewhere in the past few years, the international left’s wires seem to have gotten crossed on the subject of Islam, such that the angriest voices in Islam are treated as the most “authentic” (frequently by privileged white Western lefties), while those in Islam who speak out against such voices, no matter how just their cause or how deep their roots in the community, get little support. . . .

Well, Nawaz himself isn’t backing down. And sometimes the simplest truths take the most courage to say.
Yep.

TRAINWRECK UPDATE: Most Health Insurance Co-ops Are Losing Money, Federal Audit Finds. “Most federal insurance cooperatives created under the Affordable Care Act are losing money and could have difficulty repaying millions of dollars in federal loans, an internal government audit has found, prompting the Obama administration to step up supervision of the carriers.”

CBS News Is A Joke, So Is Hillary’s Defense

CBS News Is A Joke, So Is Hillary’s Defense:

CBS News is covering for Hillary Clinton and her email scandal. They reported that Hillary Clinton is putting up a strong defense, and this is it: Clinton said the Republicans will say the email controversy is about Benghazi, but she said, “It’s not. It’s about politics.” “I won’t get down in the mud with them,” Clinton…

Why We Lose: Top GOP Consultant Rick Wilson Trashes Republican Base

Why We Lose: Top GOP Consultant Rick Wilson Trashes Republican Base - Breitbart:

"The GOP voting base has been repeatedly betrayed, is furious, and has every right to be. The incompetent Establishment is either losing national elections, getting rolled by Democrats, simpering to the media, or serially-stabbing their own voters in the back — and doing so on nothing less than illegal  immigration, an issue the base correctly sees as an existential one that will determine the future of our Party and our country.

The Coddling of the American Mind

The Coddling of the American Mind:

Something strange is happening at America’s colleges and universities. A movement is arising, undirected and driven largely by students, to scrub campuses clean of words, ideas, and subjects that might cause discomfort or give offense. Last December, Jeannie Suk wrote in an online article for The New Yorker about law students asking her fellow professors at Harvard not to teach rape law—or, in one case, even use the word violate (as in “that violates the law”) lest it cause students distress. In February, Laura Kipnis, a professor at Northwestern University, wrote an essay in The Chronicle of Higher Educationdescribing a new campus politics of sexual paranoia—and was then subjected to a long investigation after students who were offended by the article and by a tweet she’d sent filed Title IX complaints against her. In June, a professor protecting himself with a pseudonym wrote an essay for Vox describing how gingerly he now has to teach. “I’m a Liberal Professor, and My Liberal Students Terrify Me,” the headline said. A number of popular comedians, including Chris Rock, have stopped performing on college campuses (see Caitlin Flanagan’s article in this month’s issue). Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Maher have publicly condemned the oversensitivity of college students, saying too many of them can’t take a joke.h/t Marvin

Why Is Barack Obama Mute About “Hate Speech” Spewed by Louis Farrakhan? by John lillpop

Why Is Barack Obama Mute About “Hate Speech” Spewed by Louis Farrakhan? by John lillpop:

Why is Farrakhan allowed to ignite the flames of passion that might cause events in Ferguson, MO to spread out of control?
Why is there no call for calm and reflection from the White House?
The big question: Is Barack Obama honestly committed to domestic tranquility even if that means opposing the likes of Louis Farrakhan?

WHO LOST IRAQ? BARACK OBAMA LOST IRAQ. “At one point Barack Obama and Joe Biden basked in the success of the surge that was authorized by George W. Bush and carried out by Gen. David Petraeus. They proclaimed Iraq one of the Obama administration’s greatest accomplishments, taking credit for a military and diplomatic effort that had nothing to do with them. And then that ideologically-obsessed dummy, Barack Obama, threw it all away.”

Worrying That The Ayatollah Might Stop Trusting America

Worrying That The Ayatollah Might Stop Trusting America:

The Iran Deal: Secretary of State John Kerry provided a sad peek at the heart of the left's "tough diplomacy." It's all about convincing Islamist terrorists to trust the America they consider the Great Satan. Why, in the unlikely event two-thirds of both houses of Congress overrode an Obama veto on the Iran nuclear pact, couldn't the U.S. and Tehran return to the negotiating table for a better deal? "Because," Kerry told MSNBC Thursday, "the
