In Transgender Argument, a Perfect Example of Liberal Hypocrisy

In Transgender Argument, a Perfect Example of Liberal Hypocrisy

-By Warner Todd Huston

An article in The New York Times extolling the virtues of pushing transgenderism on high school teens featured a paragraph that perfectly illustrates the hypocrisy of the liberal argument, not just on this issue, but writ large.

According to The New York Times, some students at Green Mountain Union High School in Chester, Vermont, were incensed that school administrators had implemented a transgender policy to allow a single female student who claims to be a boy to use the boys bathrooms and locker rooms at the school.

The school has broken down into two camps, according to the paper’s article, one side in favor of the so-called transgender student and the other against her right to claim to be a male.

Now, the chief argument that leftists make to legitimize forcing all schools in America to implement pro-transgender policies is that we can’t discriminate against kids who feeeel they should be a different sex than what they were born as simply because they feeeel they are right. We are to take their word for their feeeeeelings because if we don’t we are discriminating against them.

This, they say, is *just like* implementing civil rights for blacks. Because, you see, we can’t penalize kids for being transgender because if we do we are punishing them for *what they are* just like we did when African Americans had their rights quashed. Further, we can’t take away these kids’ “freedom” to decide to be the opposite sex nor can we oppose their right to free speech.

But buried in the Times story was a telling paragraph (my bold):

U.S. Appeals Court Rules Americans Have a Right to Buy and Sell Firearms

U.S. Appeals Court Rules Americans Have a Right to Buy and Sell Firearms

-By Warner Todd Huston

In a new ruling the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit maintained that Americans have a Constitutional right to acquire and sell arms.

The Ninth Circuit Court remanded the case of Teixeira v. County of Alameda back to a lower court informing it the court that the Second Amendment and its history protects the rights of Americans to self-defense including the “right to acquire weapons” as well as own them.

This puts a dent in the city of Alameda’s regulations that practically bans the opening of any gun store in the city.

Hillary’s Opponents Shrink From Attacking Her

-By Gary Krasner

The MSM is clearly blacklisting most of the Clinton scandals. But we can’t let her political opponents off the hook—-Bernie, and even Trump.

Trump has a feast to choose from. Of the two articles I am citing (Is Bill Clinton A Sexual Predator Or Just A Sex Addict? and
Hillary Helps a Bank–and Then It Funnels Millions to the Clintons), I chose the current scandal in which Bill flew to pedophile island where young teens are held prisoner for the purpose of Bill and friend Epstein to rape them.

Democrats have a method when republicans do bad things. They ask OTHER republicans–who are not involved in the bad deed–if they would condemn the accused for his bad deed.

It’s a trap question. If you don’t condemn, then you appear to condone the (alleged) bad behavior. If you condemn, then Dems succeeded in isolating and destroying a republican (the accused).

It matters not whether the allegation is true. It matters not that the accused acted alone. Dems and MSM make every republican responsible for the alleged deed, just by being in the same party.

DUMDUM Trump, the novice apprentice in politics, is unaware of this tactic. It’s obvious, because he has a wealth of opportunities to adopt that tactic against Hillary, to isolate and destroy her.

Study: Immigrants Use 41% More in Welfare Benefits Than U.S. Born Recipients

Study: Immigrants Use 41% More in Welfare Benefits Than U.S. Born Recipients

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new study on the use of welfare benefits by illegal and legal immigrants in the U.S. finds that households headed by immigrants use an average of $6,200 in benefits annually, fully 41 percent higher than the rate used by native born welfare recipients.

This study comes on the heels of another study finding that 51 percent of immigrant households are signed up for at least one welfare program.

“Immigrants are such heavy users of welfare not because they don’t work, but because, on average, they have little education and thus earn low wages,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). “If we continue to permit large numbers of less-educated people to move here from abroad, we have to accept that there will be huge and ongoing costs to taxpayers.”

The study, based on the Census Bureau’s 2012 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), notes that the higher use of welfare benefits because by and large the current wave of immigrants are less educated and have fewer needed job skills and are therefore more apt to apply for welfare benefits.

Few Other Retailers Joining Target With Pro-Transgender Bathroom Policy

-By Warner Todd Huston

Target’s unpopular decision to force its customer base of mothers and children into mixed-sex bathrooms and changing rooms is creating a huge economic opportunity for other firms — but none have announced plans to exploit the opportunity, according to a survey of press aides and marketing experts.

Still, as retail giant Target continues to stand behind its transgender-friendly bathroom policy allowing shoppers and employees who claim to be transgender choose whatever bathroom they want to use at any given time, few other large retailers are standing with Target and announcing their own such policies.

Some few have announced their own transgender bathroom policies if perhaps informally, including Barnes & Noble booksellers, Hudson’s Bay Co. department stores (owner of Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue), and perhaps unsurprisingly the liberal Starbucks coffee company.

As USA Today reported, Starbucks spokeswoman Jaime Riley said the coffee giant is “looking into additional opportunities to have more gender-neutral signage in our restrooms where jurisdictions allow it.”

CA School OKays Hispanic Students Wearing ‘Dump Trump’ Shirts Even as U.S. Flag Shirts Banned

CA School OKays Hispanic Students Wearing ‘Dump Trump’ Shirts Even as U.S. Flag Shirts Banned

-By Warner Todd Huston

A California high school has agreed to allow Hispanic students to wear their “Dump Trump” T-Shirts on campus despite a dress code that seems to prohibit them. The controversy is set against a backdrop of a federal court ruling banning U.S. flag shirts in California schools.

Sean Boulton, the principal of Newport Harbor High School in Newport Beach, a town south of Los Angeles, decided to acquiesce to the request of a group of Hispanic students who wanted to wear their shirts denigrating GOP front runner Donald Trump even as the school’s dress code could be read as prohibiting them.

The school’s dress code for the 2015/16 school year puts a ban on clothing with “inappropriate graphics” and clothing with messages that “denigrates others on account of gender, sexual orientation, race color, religion, ancestry, national origin, handicap or disadvantage.”

Despite those rules, school authorities are now allowing students to wear shirts attacking Trump and his voters.

How Trump Put Himself in a Corner in Coming Fight With Hillary

-By Warner Todd Huston

He may not be smart enough to realize it yet, but Donald Trump has put himself in a tricky position as he prepares for his looming fight with Hillary Clinton in the coming general election campaign. No matter which way he goes — or if he tries a mixture of approaches — he has a problem.

Trump spent his entire primary campaign shooting from the lip, excoriating his opponents in vulgar terms, bald-faced lying about them, and acting the tough guy. Granted it seemed to work for him as his most ardent followers Obama-like didn’t seem much interested in a serious campaign. It was all about how he made them feeeeeel. But whether Trump likes it or not, the upcoming campaign will not be the same type of campaign he’s waged thus far. Unfortunately for him, no matter what he does he is bound to get in major trouble.

If Trump continues using the same substance free, personal attacks he used during the primary, but aims it instead at Hillary, the media will utterly slay him over it. Unlike how the media gave him a pass for his attacks on Republicans, they’ll do no such thing if he trots out this stuff on Hillary. Of course, the media’s excoriation will just be manna from heaven as far as his most solid supporters are concerned. They’ll point to that and cry that they’ve been right to support Trump all along because “they” are all out to get Trump.

So, in the case of a Trump general election campaign configured as am exact clone of his primary campaign, his followers won’t be the problem for him. It’ll be the uncommitted middle that will shy from such a campaign and that will be a problem for his election. If Trump goes on a major name calling binge against Hillary he will lose anyone who already finds politics disgusting and Trump desperately needs these voters to beat an increasingly bifurcated electoral map.

Watch: Dem Chair Gets Cornered On Fox News, Has To Admit Something BIG About Hillary She Didn’t Want To

-By Warner Todd Huston

Recently Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D, FL, was cornered on Fox News about the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s violations of national security and Schultz slipped up big time in her reply giving an admission that Hillary won’t want to hear..

Schultz appeared on “Fox News Sunday” to defend Hillary Clinton but didn’t do a very good job. Other than sounding a bit halting and confused with her delivery, the core of her argument was that with her email use Hillary didn’t do anything differently than other high profile members of government. But Schultz defeated her own claims with one little line.

First off Schultz said it was “ludicrous” for the FBI to investigate Hillary’s breach of national security laws for sending classified information over a private email server housed in her own home and then deleting tens of thousands of them so they could never be seen.

Obama to Make One More Push Against Guns Before He Leaves Office

-By Warner Todd Huston

As he looks to the exit as the last year of his last term winds down, Barack Obama is about to take one more stab at curtailing the Second Amendment with yet another push to force so-called “smart gun” technology on the firearms industry and it’s a plan even police officers stand against.

Obama has failed to limit the Second Amendment like he had hoped to do when he came into office, but that isn’t for lack of trying and as his last term comes to an end he is once again trying to force the nation’s law enforcement community to set aside their proven, usable firearms and instead begin using problematic “smart gun” technology.

With his latest anti-gun policy, the President is urging federal and local policing agencies to purchase so-called “smart guns” quite despite that there is no current technology reliable enough for law enforcement use. And police say they don’t want to be Obama’s guinea pigs.

According to Politico, already sick and tired of how badly the Obama administration has treated them with years of backbiting since the Ferguson, Missouri riots, the nation’s law enforcement community (both federal and local) are not much interested in helping Obama prove the so far unworkable smart gun technology as a viable option.

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.

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

-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

-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.

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

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

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

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

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

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?

CPAC 2016: Dennis Prager and Prager University

CPAC 2016: Dennis Prager and Prager University

-By Warner Todd Huston

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.

Here is one example…

#FreeStacy A Few Words With Stacy McCain at CPAC 2016

#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.
