Unapologetic Millennial Conservative Has a TOUGH Message for Her Generation

Unapologetic Millennial Conservative Has a TOUGH Message for Her Generation

-By Warner Todd Huston

Young journalist Alexis Bloomer has a message for her fellow millennials and it’s one many won’t want to hear. Alexis wants her fellow 20 somethings to “pull their pants up” and start actually contributing to society instead of lazing around and posting social media updates as if that was activism.

Bloomer also has a message to the older generations: “I’m Sorry,” she says. Sorry for the many failings of her arrogant generation.

The journalist said she decided to assess her generation. “As a millennial, I decided to take it upon myself to try to evaluate what’s so wrong with our generation and why they’re so mad at us,” she said on her video posted to Youtube.

But as she looked over her generation she realized that some of the harshest criticism of millennials probably has a lot of validity to it.

“We’re just existing, we’re not really contributing anything to society,” she insisted and then went on to lay out all the accusations against her generation.

“Our generation doesn’t have the basic manners that include no ma’am and yes ma’am,” Bloomer said. “We don’t even hold the door open for ladies much less our elders anymore.”

Chelsea Clinton Spills the Beans on Hillary’s Plans to Confiscate Guns Using the Supreme Court

Chelsea Clinton Spills the Beans on Hillary’s Plans to Confiscate Guns Using the Supreme Court

-By Warner Todd Huston

We here are the Federalist Papers Project have been warning that if Hillary Clinton becomes President she will be a true anti-gun president and will seek to confiscate our guns and put a major crimp in our Second Amendment rights. Now Hilary’s own daughter, Chelsea, is flat out admitting that what we have been saying here is 100 percent correct: Hillary will seek to destroy the Second Amendment.

In an MSNBC broadcast of comments made at a campaign event in Maryland, Chelsea Clinton flat out admitted that her mother would seek to undermine the Second Amendment and take away our rights. Chelsea also specifically noted her mother will stack the Supreme Court with extremist liberals who will follow her policy to destroy the Second Amendment.

“It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control,” Chelsea said this month. “With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control. Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant with the Second Amendment and sometimes the Court struck them down.”

“So if you listen to Moms Demand Action and the Brady Campaign and the major efforts pushing for smart, sensible and enforceable gun control across our country, disclosure, have endorsed my mom, they say they believe the next time the Court rules on gun control, it will make a definitive ruling,” Clinton added. “So it matters to me that my mom is the only person running for president who not only constantly makes that connection but also has a strong record on gun control and standing up to the NRA.”

Hillary Clinton Hints She’ll Back Gun Confiscation as President

-By Warner Todd Huston

At a recent campaign event on so-called “gun violence,” Hillary Clinton said Americans own too many guns and then said she’d do something about this “problem” when she becomes president. What else could this mean but confiscation?

Clinton was speaking at round-table-like forum on guns held at St. Paul’s Baptist Church in Philadelphia, where she insisted we have too many guns.

“When it comes to guns? We have just too many guns,” Hillary said to the applause of those in attendance. “On the streets, in our homes, in our neighborhoods.”

She went on to say America must address the “epidemic” of guns and hinted that if she were to become president she would do something about it all. But what would that “doing something” look like?

Well, it must be remembered that last year Clinton spoke positively about the gun confiscation policy imposed on the people of Australia. Clinton said the Australian policy is one “worth considering” and said it could be imposed using the Obama program “Cash for Clunkers” as a model.

Flashback: Bernie Sanders Kicked Out of Hippie Commune for Shirking Work

-By Warner Todd Huston


In a new book chronicling the history of a 1970s commune, an author claims that self-avowed socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was kicked out of the place for shirking the work required of its residents.

According to author Kate Daloz, in 1971 when he was 30-years-old, Bernie Sanders came to the commune just as he was launching his career in the socialist Liberty Union Party.

But after staying for a period of time, the commune’s staff asked Sanders to leave because he spent all his time sitting around talking about politics and taking other residents away from the work they were required to do to keep the facility running.

In the forthcoming book We Are As Gods, Daloz presents a history of the Myrtle Hill Farm commune situated in picturesque Northeast Vermont.

According to the Freebeacon, the author says that Sanders went to the commune for research purposes. Apparently he was writing an article on natural childbirth for the Liberty Party Union’s magazine, “Movement.”

But according to author’s interviews, Sanders was a disruptive influence among the hippies and yippies living there.

Daloz found one resident named Craig who told her he “resented feeling like he had to pull others out of Bernie’s orbit if any work was going to get accomplished that day.”

Today is the Anniversary of When Republicans Outlawed the Democrat Run KKK Terror Group

Today is the Anniversary of When Republicans Outlawed the Democrat Run KKK Terror Group

-By Warner Todd Huston

It is indisputable that the Republican Party is really the party of civil rights, not the Democrats. And today we have one more example of that truism with the 145th anniversary of the Republican Party’s essential outlawing of the Ku Klux Klan, the Democrat Party’s domestic terror group.

The actions against the Klan stemmed from an outrageous massacre of nearly 300 blacks perpetrated by white, Democrat Klan members in Louisiana in 1868.

On September 28, 1868 — three years after the Confederate south lost the civil war — a mob of marauding whites rampaged through Opelousas, Louisiana and massacred nearly 300 blacks who were Republican voters.

The outrage began when white, Democrat KKK members attacked the white owner of a Republican-leaning newspaper. The newspaper editor, a former school teacher for black students, was defended by several black friends during the attack and this action enraged the mob further sending them on a day-long spree of murder and mayhem.

The attack was so outrageous that the Republican Party acted to essentially ban the KKK. By April 20, 1871, the GOP passed a law banning the oppression perpetrated by the KKK when President Ulysses Grant and Congress passed the Ku Klux Klan Act, also known as the third Enforcement Act. The law established penalties against anyone who tried to deprive any other citizen the benefit of equal protection under the laws of the United States. The law also gave the president the power to use the military to ensure that the rights of blacks were upheld.

This interest in civil rights carried all the way to the 1964 Civil Rights bill that was passed with the overwhelming support of Republicans.

Obama’s Promise to Destroy the Coal Industry Has Been Kept

-By Warner Todd Huston

Back in 2008 Barack Obama was given little notice when he told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that if he became president he’d work to destroy the coal industry, both for miners and power providers. Now, as his presidency comes to an end we see he has kept that promise.

This month, despite that coal is still one of the world’s leading sources of energy, America’s biggest coal company, Peabody Energy, filed for bankruptcy. Peabody joins a growing list of bankruptcies of other American coal concerns including Alpha Natural Resources, Arch Coal, and Patriot Coal.

Granted the industry had problems before Obama came along, but those problems became but a small part of the insurmountable obstacles put in their way by Obama’s policy to “bankrupt” the coal industry.

And before you think we here at Publius Forum are just being hyperbolic, no, “bankrupt” is exactly the term Obama used in his interview in 2008.

Here it is in Obama’s own voice

Let’s Clear Something Up About a ‘Contested’ GOP Convention, Voters DON’T Count and NEVER DID!

-By Warner Todd Huston

There is a lot of valid angst about who will become the nominee for both the Republican and the Democrat Parties this year. We are in a day when the voters are clearly pulling in a multitude of ways and not giving any candidate an overwhelming nod. But there is also a lot of BS about how “the will of the voters” is being thwarted by the party system and much of this is misinformed.

I am not saying that none of this should make you mad. Just get the facts before you get mad. Don’t shy from getting mad, just be informed while you do it!

Let’s just get one fact out of the way at the outset: your vote in a primary is not and never was the only or even the final say on who the party picks for its nominee. The will of the voter does matter in a general election where the nation picks the president, but not as much in a primary when the parties are picking who they will offer up as a candidate for the forthcoming general election. The fact is, primaries are not “the election.”

It is the party that picks the nominee, not the voter. Yes, the votes in the primary are a key guide for the party and yes, if the vote is overwhelming for a particular candidate both parties generally chose that candidate. But, the fact is the parties — any party — can pick who ever the heck they want quite regardless of the vote totals.

After all, that is what a party is for, to control its destiny and policies.

This Sci-Fi Board Proves How the Internet Makes You Stoopid

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Internet can make you stupid and an exchange I had on a science fiction/comic book board is yet more proof of that.

The subject at hand was the effect mutants would have on humanity. I contended that people with mutant powers would end up becoming an oppressive force because their superior abilities would give them unstoppable powers against “normal” people who have no such abilities.

Even if they started out as a minority they’d eventually fight back and their enhanced abilities would not only allow them to win but they would then go on become a major threat to non-powered humans. This, I said, is human nature. Humans with power — even the figurative power of the majority-controlled political establishment that we’ve seen in history — always worked to oppress minorities to some extent and often to the worst extent possible. From royalty, to religious tyrannies, to communism, they all either used the power of the majority, the raw power of might, or a combination of both to oppress the undesirables.

I then used this example to illustrate my point:

Governor Nathan Deal’s Dumbest Claim to Quash Religious Freedom

Governor Nathan Deal’s Dumbest Claim to Quash Religious Freedom

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Monday Georgia Governor Nathan Deal vetoed a religious liberty bill that would stop state authorities from forcing Christians to participate in gay marriages, but one of the “reasons” Deal said prevented him from signing the bill is fraught with a pretzel logic he can’t possibly believe.

In the Governor’s view, HB 757 was “discriminatory.” Instead of protecting religious freedom, Deal claimed it only served to oppress gays. Worse, he said despite clear examples of such coercion in other states, since it’s never happened in Georgia then the law isn’t needed.

Of course, the law was written to head off the sort of state-sponsored coercion and curtailment of religious liberty seen in other states, not necessarily a law meant to correct what has already happened in the Peach State. The fact it has happened in a number of other states was plenty enough reason to try to prevent it from happening at all in Georgia.

In any case, Deal goes on to note how religious liberty is one of the first principles of the founding of the country. The founders, Deal said, “made it clear that those liberties [religious liberties] were given by God and not by man’s government. Therefore, it was unnecessary to enumerate in statute or constitution what those liberties included.”

He then went on to indulge some truly absurd pretzel logic that is so tortured even he can’t possible believe it…

The ‘Bechdel Test’ Proves How Feckless Liberalism and Radical Feminism Really Are

The ‘Bechdel Test’ Proves How Feckless Liberalism and Radical Feminism Really Are

-By Warner Todd Huston

Conservatives like to scoff at the stuff and nonsense that is modern liberalism and its attack on traditional values and the so-called Bechdel Test is a perfect example of this foolishness of the liberal/feminist milieu. The very fact this “test” is even a thing shows how feckless and silly feminism and liberalism are.

For those blissfully unaware, the Bechdel Test is a way to ascertain if a TV show or movie pays enough fealty to feminism. The “test” measures how often two female characters talk to each other about men — whether it be a potential boy friend, a current boy friend, or a husband, or an object of desire or even a father figure. The purported goal of the test is to ascertain whether the characters are indulging the stereotype of women being fixated on pursuing men or otherwise showing they are somehow subservient to the male of the species.

The test may seem simple enough — are women in the film more worried about the men in the film or are they portrayed as more well rounded characters with a richer, deeper development? But in fact, it is meaningless box checking that ignores context and the actual story of the show.

But more significant is the fact that this whole “test” is based on a joke. No, really… an actual joke.

Robert De Niro Forced to Pull Anti-Vaccine Documentary From the Tribeca Film Festival‏

-By Gary Krasner,

(Note: In an Associated Press article published on March 26 in The New York Times, it was reported that due to pressure from pro-vaccine activists famed actor Robert De Niro pulled a film from the Tribeca Film Festival that linked vaccines to autism. This is the story that Gary Krasner, the Director Coalition For Informed Choice, is reacting to below…)

The essence of this story is about defamation of Andrew Wakefield, and how personal defamation has replaced civil debate.

When one party wishes to dodge a debate on the merits of issues (Trump), he will defame his opponent (Cruz) with slanderous lies.

Seeing that progressive politics was a hard sell to the mainstream public, the infamous radical community organizer Saul Alinsky raised it to a high art.

In his “Rules For Radicals” (1971), Alinsky taught that defamation of character is an important tactic to use. Hillary Clinton was an early disciple of his work.

In 1969, Hillary Rodham wrote a 92-page senior thesis for Wellesley College titled “There Is Only the Fight . . . “: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model’.

20 yrs later, Obama taught the rules of this great tactician to Chicago activists when he worked for ACORN. Defamation of his opponents enabled him to win his first 2 local elections.

Today, Alinsky’s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it”, is being used against parents who think vaccination is a contributing cause of ASD.

Happy Easter 2016

As we take the day off to be with our families, we here at Publius Forum wish you and yours a very happy Easter Sunday.

6 “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”

Obama Takes Criticism for Doing Wave at Ballgame, Dancing While Brussels Burns

-By Warner Todd Huston

Even as the world is still reeling from the aftermath of the terror attacks in Brussels, Obama has been seen dancing and taking in baseball games like he doesn’t have a care in the world.

Hours after the attacks that killed over 30 people — including some Americans — President Obama gave the outrageous atack a mere 50 seconds of time in a speech otherwise filled with praise for communist Cuba and condemnation for the U.S.

Only an hour or so later, as Obama enjoyed the day’s event planned by his dictatorial communist hosts, the same President who only had 50 seconds of his time to discuss the attacks in Brussels was seen doing the wave at a Cuban baseball park.

Not long afterward the press were treated to scenes of the President doing the tango with a lovely Cuban woman who was not his wife.

Trump Needs to Take Responsibility For His Rhetoric

-By Warner Todd Huston

There is a big argument being waged between Trumpeters who say he is utterly innocent for the violence constantly occurring at his rallies and those who say it is all his fault because of his bellicose rhetoric. The truth is, Ted Cruz is right. It isn’t an either or, it’s a little of both.

To start out, I don’t want to say that the violence being whipped up by your Move-On, George Soros, Occupy-type leftists are justified. Nor is it dismissible. The protests we are seeing over the last month at Trump rallies are not spontaneous bands of local citizens upset about Donald Trump. They are organized, anti-American agitators who are using Trump to foster anarchy.

These people have been around for decades. They are the same people who peopled the failed Occupy Wall Street “movement,” the same type of people who helped organize the 1968 Chicago convention riots, the same who have organized unrest, destruction, race hatred, and attacks all across the country since the anarchist craze started at the turn of the last century. They are all of a piece, all un-American, all hateful of our system and history.

Further, none of this violence would be happening at Trump rallies if they were not organizing ahead of time and making efforts to invade Trump rallies in order to try and foster violence.

And before I go on I should say that the leftists perpetrating violence at these rallies are not to be excused for what they are doing. They are wrong. Their actions–even if expected–are wrong.

However, there is a reason these people aren’t targeting Cruz or Rubio or Kasich or any of the other candidates before them. It is because Trump has invited them with his own bellicose rhetoric.

Ted Cruz Addresses the Northwest Republican Lincoln Day Dinner

-By Warner Todd Huston

I was in attendance at this year’s Northwest Suburban Republican Lincoln Day Dinner in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. We had a nice visit from Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

We hear little bits from these candidates all the time, including in the debates. But it is rare for people to actually hear a candidate’s entire stump speech. This is a perfect example fof the main points that Cruz gives to audiences.

So, if you’ve never heard a Cruz stumper, this is a great example.

A word about the video. I was too far to Ted’s right (no jokes, please) as he spoke from the dais. So, I focused my iPhone at the video screen which was just next to me. So, that is why the colors are a bit washed out. but I WAS in the room for the speech.

Cruz also spoke before the event and here is my report on that: Ted Cruz Suggests Violence at Donald Trump’s Chicago Rally ‘Starts at the Top’.

Illegal Alien Arrested for Serial Murder Spree

-By Warner Todd Huston

Another one of Obama’s “DREAMERS” has been nabbed after a state-wide manhunt. This week the Missouri State Patrol arrested an illegal migrant who was suspected of going on a murder spree after being “accidentally” released by federal immigration officials.

Police apprehended Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino around midnight on Wednesday as he fled authorities in central Missouri nearly 175 miles away from the scene of the murder of four people in Kansas City.

Witnesses told Kansas City police that Serrano-Vitorino, a Mexican national, was seen running from the scene of the crime carrying an AK-47 rifle.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials (ICE) said Serrano-Vitorino had already been deported from the U.S. 12 years ago but had illegally re-entered the U.S. sometime before his fingerprints were flagged in the system last September when police in Overland Park, Kansas arrested him for a traffic violation.

ICE officials, though, apologized saying they “regret the error” for sending a retainer order to the wrong police agency resulting in Serrano-Vitorino’s release back into the public.

From there, police say that Serrano-Vitorino eventually killed four men in a home in Kansas City. During the manhunt, Missouri police came across a fifth victim shot as Serrano-Vitorino attempted to evade police. This fifth murder is also being attributed to the suspect.

Serrano-Vitorino was taken into custody as he tried to hide in a ditch after abandoning his vehicle.

Police have not yet determined a motive for Serrano-Vitorino’s murder spree but the investigation continues.

Marco Rubio’s Arrogance Would Mean the Sundering of the GOP

-By Warner Todd Huston

Marco Rubio has only one path to the White House and it isn’t through the ballot box. In fact, the only way Marco Rubio could become the GOP nominee for president is through the back room deals of a brokered convention initiated among the very establishment hacks that the voters are working overtime to depose from power.

So, whether or not Marco Rubio is a “full throated conservative” — as Rush Limbaugh called him — he is doing his level best to defeat the voters who might otherwise be disposed to accept him as a conservative in the White House.

Lately Rubio has been running around claiming he is now in this race to stop Donald Trump. But that is clearly a lie. If Rubio’s goal was to stop Trump, he’d have dropped out of the race to back Texas Senator Ted Cruz who is thus far the only candidate who has proven he can beat Trump.

Even if only half of Rubio’s voters went to Ted Cruz it would be enough to stop Trump in many of these contests and with enough examples of Cruz beating Trump more voters would flee Trump and line up behind Cruz.

But Rubio doesn’t really want to “stop Trump.” He wants to win the nomination… at any cost, even the destruction of the very part he wants to lead.

John Kasich and His Big Government Education Disconnect

-By Warner Todd Huston

Ohio Governor John Kasich talked about education at the GOP debate in Detroit, but what he said essentially reveals the disconnect between apparent conservative rhetoric and a less conservative love of big government.

Talking about how the schools in Cleveland, one of the largest cities in his home state of Ohio, have been turning around lately due to new policies, the Governor tried to wrench that into federal policy.

Those local policies may be all well and good, but one sentence he unleashed that night revealed a dichotomy between conservative boilerplate and the usual, big government nonsense we see from establishment and Washington Republicans.

“And, frankly, look, if I were president,” Kashich said, “I’d take 104 federal programs, bundle them into four buckets, and send it to the states, because fixing schools rests at the state and the local level, and particularly at the school board level.”

Notice the disconnect? He began talking about those “buckets” of federal money he’d “send to the states” for education. And why would he send all those buckets loaded with tax dollars? Because “fixing schools rests at the state and the local level, and particularly at the school board level.”

So, what is the disconnect?

I have never written anything about Prager University and I have to say I’ve been remiss. So, with conservative talk show host Dennis Prager appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC2016) it is a good time to correct that slight.

Dennis has been around quite a few years and is one of Salem Radio’s biggest stars, but he also founded a Youtube channel called Prager University where you can go to find some of the best arguments for conservatism ever put to video.

These great videos are concise, well reasoned, and short with great production values. But even more importantly, if you are looking for ways to argue against the left you can’t find better intellectual ammunition that that at Prager U.

If you need help understanding conservative principles or just need help on how to formulate your argument when talking to your liberal friends, Prager University is your ticket to the best source for conservative information.

#FreeStacy A Few Words With Stacy McCain at CPAC 2016

-By Warner Todd Huston

Here at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC 2016) I ran across an old friend whom I’ve known since 2001 when I first started doing all this political writing and activism full time. But, maybe I shouldn’t be advertising this because Stacy McCain is one of the first conservatives to be banned from Twitter for Tweeting While Conservative (TWC).

At CPAC I spoke to Stacy who has been a long-time blogger and journalist at places such as the Washington Times and asked him just why he was banned from Twitter. And after all was said and done he just plain didn’t have a clue why out of all the conservative Twittersphere HE was the first one banned.

And I ca’t agree more. Sure he was straightforwardly conservative but there are far, far worse users of the social media platform on the right (and you know who you are). So, why Stacy?

McCain, who had over 90,000 followers when Twitter lowered the boom on his account, was never given an explanation from Twitter and he has no firm idea why he was canned except for the fact that he is a conservative.

So, why is it a Twitter crime to Tweet While Conservative? I’ll bet YOU can guess.

In any case, if you want to tell Twitter about your disgust with its anti-free speech policies, tweet out the hashtag #FreeStacy and tell them.

Finally, I would be remiss not to say that Stacy has a great blog called The Other McCain that I am sure you’ll love.

Scott Walker CPAC 2016: We Have Had Much Success in the States

-By Warner Todd Huston

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, the most anticipated entrant into the 2016 GOP primary, and it’s first victim, was the opening speaker for Wednesday’s Conservative Action Political Conference convention and reminded the audience that the Republican Party is stronger than ever in state houses across the nation.

Walker, who led a Republican revolution in the generally liberal state of Wisconsin, noted that we have more Republican governors than ever before and more GOP-led state legislatures than ever.

If national politics is a mess for the center right, the states are a hotbed of conservatism.

It should be remembered that Wisconsin was one of the nation’s birthplaces of progressivism (California being another) and when Walker took the governorship there it was a shock to liberals in general and Democrat unionists in particular.

Walker was a prohibitive favorite of conservatives across the country and man eagerly awaited his entrant into the 2016 GOP primary election cycle, but his campaign flagged early, had internal trouble, and Walker himself couldn’t seem to get his message to resonate. He was one of the first high profile candidates to end his race for the White House.

I am here at National Harbor, Maryland for CPAC 2016 and will be occasionally sharing updates about the event.

Actor Jude Law seems to fancy himself some sort of intellectual philanthropist but his trip to the illegal Muslim migrant camp in Calais, France nicknamed “The Jungle” proves once again that actors should be ignored when they are off the screen because they are generally too stupid to be worth anyone’s time.

Actor Law visited “The Jungle” just ahead of its being shut down and demolished. He went there to highlight the “plight” of these illegal migrants and to plead for his own nation of Britain to allow even more of these lawbreaking, rapists and thieves into his country.

Full of faux compassion, Law traipsed around with a coterie of other actors and British celebrities– all of whom were surrounded by a security squad. They filmed some silly special meant to fool Brits into feeling sorry for the migrants but the criminal nature of these people was too much for them to subdue for long because after the cameras stopped rolling these so-called “refugees” turned on Law’s security team and robbed them of their wallets and cell phones.

If it wasn’t so affirming it would be funny — neigh hilarious — that these British do-gooders went to Calais to “help” these illegal migrants only to be attacked and robbed for their troubles.

So, how did Law and his foolish fellows characterize the incident?

Can You Be a Conservative and Also a Trump Voter?

Can You Be a Conservative and Also a Trump Voter?

-By Warner Todd Huston

A few weeks ago I wrote a piece saying you can’t be a conscientious conservative and refuse to vote for Donald Trump if he faces Hillary Clinton in a general election. But can you also be such a conservative and vote for Trump in a primary?

Before I go on, here, I have to note that I am not a Trump supporter. Even though I wrote you have to vote Trump if the choice is between him and Hilary in a general election contest, I’d rather see any general election for Trump avoided from the start.

So, the straight answer to the question posited in the headline above is “no.” No you can’t be a committed conservative and vote for Trump in a primary. If you are voting Trump you are one of three types of voter and none of the three can be a committed conservative.

The Myth of Mass Incarceration

The Myth of Mass Incarceration

I never do this, but I am republishing this whole piece. The stats in it are incredibly important but since WSJ is hidden behind a pay wall, few will get to see this stuff. So, as much for myself as you, the reader, I am reposting this here so that I can reference it later.Just a reminder to anyone coming to this site, this site is not a money maker for me, so I am not making $$ of someone else’s work, here. But this info is just too important to lose behind a pay wall.

The most shocking revelation in Mr. Latzer’s piece is that only 1.2 percent of America’s African American population are incarcerated. This makes the lie that blacks are being “warehoused” in prisons. That makes the lie to the Black Lives Matter movement, too.

Finally, this article makes the lie to the push for “sentencing reform” being pushed by both Barack Obama and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

The Myth of Mass Incarceration
-By Barry Latzer
Wall Street Journal, Feb. 22, 2016

Violent crime, not drugs, has driven imprisonment. And drug offenses usually are for dealing, not using.

It has become a boogeyman in public discourse: “mass incarceration.” Both left and right, from Hillary Clinton to Rand Paul, agree that it must be ended. But a close examination of the data shows that U.S. imprisonment has been driven largely by violent crime—and thus significantly reducing incarceration may be impossible.

Less than one-half of 1% of the U.S. population is incarcerated, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), so “mass” is a bit of hyperbole. The proportion of African-Americans in prison, 1.2%, is high compared with whites (0.25%), but not in absolute terms.

There’s a lot of historical amnesia about the cause of prison expansion, a mistaken sense that it was all about drugs or race and had very little to do with serious crime. This ignores the facts. Between 1960 and 1990, the rate of violent crime in the U.S. surged by over 350%, according to FBI data, the biggest sustained buildup in the country’s history.

One major reason was that as crime rose the criminal-justice system caved. Prison commitments fell, as did time served per conviction. For every 1,000 arrests for serious crimes in 1970, 170 defendants went to prison, compared with 261 defendants five years earlier. Murderers released in 1960 had served a median 4.3 years, which wasn’t long to begin with. By 1970 that figure had dropped to 3.5 years.

New Bill Set to Give Illegals Voting Rights in New York City

New Bill Set to Give Illegals Voting Rights in New York City

-By Warner Todd Huston

Activists are pushing a new a new bill that would give illegal migrants living in New York City the right to vote in city elections starting in 2017.

According to the New York Post, Bertha Lewis, head of the Black Institute, said the bill is meant to allow all people to vote. “We want to expand the right to vote for everybody, not suppress the vote. What a radical idea,” she said.

The bill would give an estimated 1.3 million illegals in the Big Apple the right to vote for mayor, city comptroller, borough president, and city council members.

Saying, “People want to come out of the shadows,” Lewis insisted the new right would be a logical next step after Mayor de Blasio’s new program of issuing municipal I.D. cards to illegals was enacted.

Why Millennials Don’t Understand Economics

Why Millennials Don’t Understand Economics

-By Gary Krasner

THAT is the question. It is not “why do they love Bernie.” Bernie is just another product of the liberal educational system that produces economic ignorance.

So the reason Millennials are for Bernie is the same reason economic ignorance prevailed in 2008 when people voted for Obama.

And some of that begins with GW Bush, who spent government money like a liberal does, and never explained supply side economics, let alone know what the hell it was. Faux conservatives McCain and Romney were no different.

That is why, to this day, Americans blame Republicans for the recession. Democrats came out of the gate with political demagoguery, and Bush and McCain looked like deer caught in the headlights. They own that legacy, which remains dead weight around the neck of every conservative running for office today. We needed moderate, “compassionate” conservatives like we need Pope Francis’ advice on immigration policy.

Here’s what these moderate Republicans should have said then, and what Trump can say today if he were articulate on public policy:

Open Letter to Radio Talk Show Host Mike Gallagher

-By Gary Krasner

Dear Mike,

I was listening to your radio broadcast on February 16, 2016. You devoted the first hour of your show to a discussion of Kentucky Senate Bill 152, which would require women seeking abortions to undergo ultrasound and force them to view the fetus in the womb.

I didn’t hear you mention ultrasound. Instead, you presented the bill as a reasonable measure for women to receive pre-abortion counseling. You correctly mentioned how many women experience depression following their abortions.

The issue of ultrasound vs. counseling is not relevant to the topic I wish to raise, although the public should be aware that prenatal ultrasound is unsafe: see: http://harvoa.org/chs/pr, and http://harvoa.org/chs.

But to my point, I oppose this Kentucky bill that compels women to consult a physician before obtaining an abortion.

Personally, I’m pro life. I’m conservative. I regularly contribute to this website and for 10 years I wrote for AmericanDaily.com. I’m friend and confident to the pro-life activist Debi Vinnedge of COG For Life.

Yet I oppose the bill because when you make something compulsory, YOU are inviting government into the private affairs of OTHER people who are engaging in lawful activities.

Politics, Left And Right, Dumbed Down to ‘Fairness’

Politics, Left And Right, Dumbed Down to ‘Fairness’

-By Warner Todd Huston

As the presidential primaries roll out across America it has become clear that the voters are revolting against the establishment — both on the left and the right. Usually we think of the Republicans and Democrats as being polar opposites, but in today’s climate large numbers of voters on both sides are lining up in opposition to the elites for exactly the same reason. Both the left and right are in revolt over “fairness.”

Large numbers of voters, those voting for Trump on the right side of the aisle and those voting for Sanders on the left, are upset that America is no longer fair for everyone. Certainly the definition of fair and the cure for this lack of fairness takes different forms on the left and right, but it is fairness they are both exercised about, nonetheless.

Many center right Americans are worried that the large youth vote jumping on the bandwagon for self-professed socialist Bernie Sanders is a harbinger for a collapse to come and proof that America’s children have become communists. It is also proof that they have rejected the American ethos and tradition. But, while the end product might be much the same, I’d argue that it isn’t true that these Sanders voters are really voting for actual socialism.

In fact, I’d argue that most of them haven’t a clue what socialism even is. If they did they’d realize what a stupid idea it would be to vote for someone so foolish as to imagine socialism is a good idea. 20 years ago Bernie Sanders would have been thought of as a crackpot and would have been utterly dismissed from presidential politics.

‘Chicago Tribune’ Critic Slams America’s Love of Entertaining Super Bowl Ads

‘Chicago Tribune’ Critic Slams America’s Love of Entertaining Super Bowl Ads

-By Warner Todd Huston

A Chicago Tribune TV critic was aghast that Americans often enjoy the commercials during the Super Bowl. Apparently he was upset about all that capitalism going on and mad that Americans don’t rise up and throw their shoes at their TVs in revolt. Corporations are apparently all venal and wasteful, he alleges, and we shouldn’t stand for it.

In his February 5 critique, Trib’s TV scribe Phil Rosenthal got his dander up several days before the Super Bowl as the nation had already begun talking about the commercials everyone was looking forward to seeing. The prospects of capitalism seemed to have put Rosenthal in a foul mood.

The columnist’s first assumption about why we enjoy many of the commercials was one literally no one believes.

“It’s as if the fact that some marketer spent $5 million per half minute — up about 11 percent from $4.5 million last year — to pitch more than 100 million of us in the Super Bowl 50 audience obliges us to actually pay attention,” he wrote.

No one watches Super Bowl commercials imagining they are obligated to do so because they are so expensive to air. No one.

But from this argument so early in his piece, one can begin to note the anti-corporate and anti-capitalist bent of the rest of the article.
