VIDEO: Fox News’ Shep Smith Laments How America Will ‘Ruin Cuba’

Shep Smith is at it again, this time he was heard on his Fox News show lamenting how America will “ruin” Cuba now that Obama is opening up diplomatic relations with that island nation. No, seriously. That is exactly what he said. This idiot really needs to go work for the commies at MSNBC.

So, we have a nation that has been oppressed for 50 years, a nation where even toothpaste and toilet paper is a luxury that most there can’t afford. We have a nation where any questioning of the government results in torture and murder. But with the possibility of the US initiating closer relations with that beleaguered nation, Shep Smith is now worried that contact with the USA will be bad for the Cuban people? Really, Shep?!

After sonorously noting how he paid $4 for a liter of his favorite Cuban booze last time he visited there, Shep’s cohost noted that there will be an “onrush” of American businesses that will want to get down into the Cuban market… though I don’t know why anyone would assume there even is a Cuban market or that Cubans have money to spend.

Vivek Murthy: Obama’s New Anti-Gun Surgeon General

December 17, 2014 | Filed Under 2nd Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Guns, Health, Liberals, Policy, President, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Monday, the Senate has approved Vivek Murthy to be the next U.S. surgeon general. Murthy is many things, of course, he is a far, far left-wing activist, and a stolid liberal, but one thing he definitely is, is a major anti-gun nut, a man who hates the US Constitution.

Murthy has said that banning guns is part of “medicine” calling guns in America a “public health crisis.” He is the president and co-founder of Doctors for America, a group that pushes hard for massive gun confiscation laws.

Early this year the National Rifle Association warned the nation against allowing this hater of the US Constitution from being made America’s Surgeon General.

Obama Insulting Legal Immigrants By Using Their Money to Give Amnesty to Illegals

December 14, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Budget, Congress, Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Entitlements, Ethics, Government Corruption, Immigration/Immigrants, Law, Liberals, President, Progressives, Regulation, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

President Obama has figured a way to fund his unconstitutional amnesty plans that not only hamstrings Congress to a great degree, but it also delivers a huge insult to anyone foolish enough to try to immigrate to the USA legally.

One of the ways that Obama tried to get around the possibility that Congress might not allocate funds in the budget for his new amnesty for illegals plans is to use the fee-based fund from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Since this money in the USCIS is not amassed from taxes, Obama thinks that Congress won’t be able to remove the funding. In this way he thinks that he can keep funding his unconstitutional plans without threat from Congress. Of course, Congress CAN take away the money for the operations of the USCIS, but that isn’t too likely.

But if it isn’t tax dollars, just who pays these fees? The money in this fund is paid as fees for government services–like filing paper work, etc–by immigrants who have legally come to the USA. That’s right, Obama is insulting legal immigrants by using THEIR money to fund his amnesty for illegals.

Senate Defense Bill Allows Obama to Steal Hundreds of Thousands of Acres of Land From Western States

Instead of concerning itself with our national defense, the new Senate National Defense Authorization Act provides for the federal government to steal millions of acres of land from western states like Montana.

The defense bill was passed on Friday allows for $585 billion in discretionary spending by the Pentagon as well as affording $63.7 billion in overseas contingency operations funding. But it also includes 70 different public land grabs.

The new provisions designate an additional 250,000 acres of land to be property of the federal government. This is the biggest land grab since Obama’s last land grab in 2009.

With Topinka Gone, How Will Illinois Replace its Comptroller?

-By Warner Todd Huston

With the passing of Illinois State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, the state is faced with a bit of a dilemma. How should she be replaced?

After a lifetime of service to the state, Topinka passed away at the age of 70 from the effects of a stroke suffered last week. She was serving her second term as state comptroller to which she was just re-elected this year.

But her passing comes at an inconvenient time for state government as the current governor has only a month to go in his final term and the next governor is from the opposing party.

The New Budget Bill: Still Funds Obamacare, Still Bans Abortion Spending, Still Bans Internet Taxes

-By Warner Todd Huston

The New nine-month budget bill called the CR/Omnibus spending bill is a $1.01 trillion spending bill that is over one thousand pages thick. But it takes care of spending for most of 2015 and one has to wonder why the Republicans pushed a spending bill that will prevent them from affecting spending for most of the entire first year they will be in control?

It is absurd that the GOP didn’t push a continuing resolution that only tides the government over for a few short months because next year the GOP will be in full control of both houses of Congress. Yet, the GOP was not just *sighing* and agreeing with this nine-month spending bill, GOP leadership was pushing it. This is a bill that will cut the GOP out from having any influence on spending for most of their first year they are in control.

Still, many of the hundreds of policy riders–little bits of instruction that affects spending–are good for the conservatives. Of course, some will upset Democrats and some Republicans.

Anyway, here are some of the riders of interest in the new budget bill (in no particular order):

Obamacare Fully Funded

The bill fully funds Obamacare, though it does put a limit to any growth in spending and cuts the budget by $10 million for the “death panel” board called the Independent Payment Advisory Board. It also does not give the IRS any new funding so that the taxing agency can implement the Affordable Care Act.

Clean Water Act

In a victory for farmers, the spending bill will prevent the EPA from taking upon itself the power to regulate farm ponds and ditch water. This is also a victory for Republicans–not to mention the country!

EPA Funding Cut

Speaking of the EPA, its budget was cut by $60 million over last year’s budget. The EPA will get $8.1 billion. This is another decrease. Since 2010 the agency has lost 21 percent of its budget.

No Pot Legalization for Washington DC

The City Council of the District of Columbia will be prohibited from legalizing marijuana and will be forced to hew to the federal ban on pot. On the other hand, federal drug enforcement agencies and law groups will be prevented from interfering in state-based pot industries.

WI Police Chief Demands Citizens Allow Cops to Roam Through Homes Looking for Guns

Hear that pounding at your door? It is the Beloit, Wisconsin, police chief demanding that you allow him and his jackbooted thug officers to roam through your house looking for guns. Seriously. That is what Chief Norm Jacobs wants citizens of his town to allow.

This has to be one of the most un-American ideas imaginable. To allow government thugs to freely roam through your home looking for something that under the Constitution you are allowed to have in the first place is a bad, bad idea.

But not only is Chief Jacobs a promulgator of anti-American policies, he is also a screeching purveyor of hyperbole. In his address to the city, he said guns were *just like* Ebola.

“Gun violence is as serious as the Ebola virus is being represented in the media, and we should fight it using the tools that we’ve learned from our health providers,” the chief said last week.

Hear that, America? Chief Jacobs thinks your Second Amendment rights is like a virus. If that isn’t a perfect example of the way leftists think there is no better example.

Taxpayer Paid Professor Forces Students to Recite Faux ‘Pledge of Allegiance’ That Mocks USA & Republicans

December 8, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Colorado, Communism, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Denver, Education, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Liberals, Progressives, Public School, Socialism, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

A taxpayer paid professor in Denver is forcing students to recite a satirical version of the pledge of allegiance that attacks the United States for targeting blacks and women and says that Republicans are homophobic and against “the poor.”

Dr. Charles Angeletti, is a self-proclaimed atheist and socialist professor of American Civilization at the publicly funded Denver university, CampusReform.com reports. This communist “required students recite the satirical Pledge of Allegiance during the fall 2014 semester.”

The fake pledge is as follows:

“I pledge allegiance to and wrap myself in the flag of the United States
Against Anything Un-American and to the Republicans for which it stands,
two nations, under Jesus, rich against poor, with curtailed liberty and
justice for all except blacks, homosexuals, women who want abortions,
Communists, welfare queens, treehuggers, feminazis, illegal immigrants,
children of illegal immigrants, and you if you don’t watch your step.”

The professor distributed this faux pledge to every student and demanded that they recite it in his classroom.

Steven Farr, an MSU freshman majoring in Meteorology, reports that this “teacher’s” class was wall to wall condemnation of the United States and that the “teacher” offered no other view other than anti-Americanism.

Other students have also noted that this “teacher” coddles liberals but viciously attacks anyone who differs with his opinion of hatred for the country.

Firstly, no one who is an avowed communist should even be allowed to teach American civilization. Communism is antithetical to America in every single way, so having a teacher with a personal ideology that hates everything that is American must–not will, not can, not might, must–burden students with a biased view of that history. It is simply impossible for someone to have an ideology built on hate of his subject to teach that subject without negative bias infusing every aspect of his instruction.

Secondly, a class on any sort of civilization–whether it be European, Roman, Western, Eastern, or what have you–should not be a biased class in any direction. It should be a straight recitation of the history of that society. It must be up to students to decide what value to confer on that group and that group’s history.

This professor is not a teacher. He is a hater attempting to force students to accept his outlandish and hate-filled opinions as fact. He is not “teaching” he is attempting to indoctrinate. He should be fired because he is failing to teach and not through mere incompetence, at that. He has set himself up as an enemy of the United States and is trying to cajole students into developing a similar enmity.

Stormtrooper Austin Police Chief Wants Citizens to Inform On ‘Gun Enthusiasts’

December 6, 2014 | Filed Under 2nd Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Guns, Liberals, Progressives, Texas, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The police Chief of Austin, the most left-wing city in Texas, is demanding that citizens tell police if they have a friend, neighbor or family member who loves guns. You read that right. Just like in Soviet times when the KGB demanded that people inform on each other, this officer of the law is demanding that citizens snitch on anyone that owns a gun so police can create some sort of hit list of gun owners in the city.

In a December 1 press conference, Acevedo said that it was his job to “vet” people who own guns. Apparently, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo thinks it is his job to go door to door to assess whether citizens should be allowed to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

During the presser, the chief said the following:

Ferguson Protests From Coast to Coast, Will They Effect ‘Change’?

December 1, 2014 | Filed Under Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Free Speech, Freedom, Government, Government Corruption, Law, Liberals, Liberty, Occupy Wall Street, President, Progressives, Race, Racism, The Law, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Saturday, Nov. 29, some five days after a grand jury decided not to indict a Ferguson policeman for murder, a group of 100 people gathered to walk from Ferguson, Missouri to the state capital in Jefferson City to protest the grand jury decision. In the last week protests across the nation echoed the discontent seen in Ferguson. But as these protests now seem to be winding down, what did they accomplish?

Early in August when a white police officer shot an unarmed black teenager after the teen had committed a strong-arm robbery of a local convenience store, many activists thought they had the perfect cause for protest. But protests quickly devolved into riots and police responded with force giving protesters even more to gripe about.

Months later a grand jury meeting to decide if that police officer had acted in a criminal manner decided not to indict him sparking further riots and protests in Ferguson.

Ferguson wasn’t the only place that sponsored protests in support of Michael Brown, the teen shot in early August. Protests occurred all across the country from California, Indiana, and Texas, to Illinois, Boston, and New York.

Even NYT Notes That Voter ID Laws DO NOT ‘Suppress’ Minority Voters

November 28, 2014 | Filed Under Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Journalism, Liberals, Media Bias, President, Progressives, The New York Times, Vote Fraud, Voter ID, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The left is all balled up in knots over the false claim that voter ID laws are meant specifically to “suppress” the vote of minorities and to swing elections to the GOP. This is a lie. And even The New York Times essentially agrees that this is a lie.

Firstly, the point of voter ID laws is not to “suppress” anything other than illegal votes. If a white guy is not properly registered and goes to the polling place without a valid ID, he shouldn’t vote any more than an African American or an Hispanic.

Now, the argument the loony left makes to “prove” that voter ID laws affect only minorities is that, according to these loons, liberal minorities are too stupid to figure out how to get an approved ID so that they can vote and will therefore be denied the right to vote.

They claim that they have “studies” that prove that many states have hundreds of thousands of minorities who lack the proper ID and so are being disenfranchised by voter ID laws.

But now even Nate Cohn from The New York Times proves that this claim is bunkum.

Obama Just Gave Employers a $3,000 Incentive to Hire Illegals Over Real Americans

The United States has been suffering through the worst jobs climate in recent memory with millions of Americans unable to find work and just giving up looking. Now, things are going to get worse because with his massive, unconstitutional amnesty, Obama just gave employers a big incentive to hire illegals instead of real Americans.

According to The Washington Times, Obama’s illicit amnesty will hand employers a $3,000 incentive to hire illegals over American citizens.

How did the paper figure this? It’s because of Obamacare, naturally.

You Built This, Mr. President, Ferguson is all That is Wrong With Democrats

-By Warner Todd Huston

The pointless and illicit rioting in Ferguson, Missouri is a perfect example of all that is wrong with the Democrat Party, the unavoidable end game of that party’s actions, and proof of the illegitimacy of everything Democrats do to win elections.

Democrats win elections by lying to blacks and telling them that they are still living in the 1930s where it concerns race relations in America. The Democrat Party lies to blacks telling them Jim Crow is still in force, that blacks have made no progress, that they are oppressed every day and all their personal failures are the fault of others–namely “those white devils.”

Democrats then promise to give blacks freebies to make amends for the purported conditions under which they are supposed to suffer in order to get their vote.

And it works, too. Blacks vote in the 90 percent range for Democrats.

On Ferguson I Was Right No Indictment, Updated With Testimony

November 25, 2014 | Filed Under Constitution, Crime, Missouri, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On August 20 I noted that Officer Wilson was certainly innocent and shouldn’t be indicted for murder. Last night the grand jury in St. Louis County, Missouri validated my two-month-old presumptions. So, here is a re-post of my Aug. 20 points along with the actual grand jury testimony added at the bottom to contrast what I said two months ago.

I held off on writing a whole lot about Ferguson for the reason that I had no idea what happened and for many days there was no way to determine anything. But now it is beginning to look like the cop is innocent of “murder,” that teenager Michael Brown was a thug, and that the protesters are all 100% in the wrong.

New reports are finally making their way out of the morass in Ferguson and revealing that police officer Darren Wilson was attacked through his cruiser window by the hulking, thuggish Michael Brown who may have struggled with the smaller officer for control of his service pistol.

There is also new evidence that the police have upwards to a dozen witnesses who substantiate the officer’s version of events.

Today evidence was reported that officer Wilson suffered a broken eye socket in the incident which substantiates that Brown did attack him.

Dana Perino Wrongly Claims Obama ‘Has The Prosecutorial Discretion’ To Issue His Amnesty

-By Warner Todd Huston

One of the claims that the left is erroneously using to justify Obama’s new amnesty policy is that he has the “prosecutorial discretion” to do what he is doing and on Thursday Fox News’ Dana Perino agreed with the left that Obama does, indeed, have that power.

Perino appeared on the November 20 edition of Fox News’ The Five where she insisted that Obama does have the power to issue his amnesty. But she also noted that it was “strange” that the first major thing that Obama did after the elections was to “poison the well” with his amnesty policy even after he claimed that the midterms meant that voters want Democrats and Republicans to work together.

Perino went on to claim that Obama has neatly boxed in his Republican opponents because they will not be able to quickly settle the constitutional legality of Obama’s order nor will they be able to easily tell five million suddenly legal immigrants that they actually aren’t legal.

A recent encounter that Obama had with ABC so entirely illustrates his arrogance that it can only make you laugh.

Where is Hillary on Obama’s Abuse of Power? The Five Times She Said Presidents Need Limits

November 21, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Budget, Congress, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Foreign Policy, Government, Government Corruption, Hillary Clinton, Immigration/Immigrants, Liberals, Nanny State, President, Progressives, Republicans, Senate, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Hillary Clinton has been pretty silent over Obama’s amnesty. She has not chastised this president for his abuse of power. But this might seem to be inconsistent with her past comments because there have been at least five times when she said that our presidents need to be reigned in and have their powers limited.

Clinton railed against an overly powerful executive at least five times in the recent past. In 2006, and twice each in 2007 and 2008 Hillary warned that the US needs to restore its system of checks and balances, a system lost to an over active Chief Executive.

In 2006, for instance, Hillary attacked George W. Bush claiming that he was making “the most extraordinary claims of executive power that we’ve seen in the nation’s history.” At that time Hillary praised our constitutional democracy and urged the nation to force Bush to back off and work better with Congress.

Only months later in 2007, Clinton was again railing against the President and saying that if she were elected to the White House she would roll back Bush’s use of Executive Orders. “I think you have to restore the checks and balances and the separation of powers, which means reining in the presidency,” Clinton said to The Boston Globe.

Despite Rabble-Rousers Urging Ferguson Citizens to Vote, Few Bothered

-By Warner Todd Huston

After months of rioting, one of the main themes that many left-wing rabble-rousers have been pushing on residents of Ferguson is to register to vote so that they can “change” their local government. But despite all the rhetoric, few Ferguson residents bothered to vote last Tuesday.

A big criticism of Ferguson, Missouri’s government is that there are “too many white people” in it. Activists have maintained that only a slate full of black candidates can properly govern the largely black population of the city. So, to throw out the few whites on the council, activists have urged citizens to register to vote and usher in a utopian black government.

But despite all the caterwauling of activists, it appears that Ferguson residents still weren’t motivated very much to go register and vote.

“At the end of the day for me this is really a social movement,” Duncan said of taxpayer-funded pre-school.

“If you look at social movements, we all celebrate what happened in the 1960’s. The civil rights movement was extraordinarily powerful, life transforming, earth shattering. But the question I have is, why didn’t the civil rights movement happen in the 50’s or the 40’s or 30’s or 20’s?” he said.

Obamacare Voters & Gang of Eight Immigration Senators Saw Big Losses on Tuesday

New Anti-Media Campaign Debuts in North Carolina to Defeat Kay Hagan

-By Warner Todd Huston

An interesting new TV ad campaign that targets the left-wing media instead of just a political party or candidate has begun in North Carolina as Election Day bears down upon the nation.

The TV spot is ostensibly an ad asking voters to defeat Democrat incumbent Senator Kay Hagan, but the main message is anti-Old media as opposed to strictly anti-Kay Hagan.

A similar ad is running in New Mexico and both are sponsored by a PAC named the Conservatism War Chest. The PAC’s spokesman, Mike Flynn, notes that conservatives can’t win until the media is defeated. (Disclosure: I’ve known Mike for years and have worked with him at Bretbart.com. But I’ve never discussed this effort with him.)

“Conservatives can never gain final victory until they confront the problem of news organizations who are the real opposition party in America,” Flynn said. “This content-heavy spot puts before the public case studies that establish these organizations as partisan not journalistic organizations that are dedicated to activism, not the fearless pursuit of the truth.”

Here is how the PAC explains its efforts:

UNPRECEDENTED: Obama Orders Insurance Industry to Withhold New Prices Until AFTER Midterm Elections

November 2, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Budget, Business, Capitalism, Congress, Constitution, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Health, Insurance, Liberals, Obamacare, President, Progressives, Republicans, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Barack Obama is again playing political games with our health insurance industry and has turned in another underhanded move against it by forcing insurance carriers, brokers and agents to withhold their 2015 prices until after the 2014 midterm elections are over all so that the news of higher prices won’t hurt Democrats on Election Day.

This means that customers looking to get new insurance or those wishing to scout new policies to see if they can get a better deal are not able to shop for insurance.

Before we get into that, though, millions of new cancellations will be hitting on January 1, 2015. Much of this news has gone under the radar as Democrats and their lapdog media are keeping this as quiet as possible.

There is also something different with these cancellations, something that has never happened before in the healthcare insurance industry. Past practice has always been that the next year’s new rates are released 60 days before the first day of the next year. But Obama has mandated that companies hold back on that normal practice so that he can shield Democrats at the polls.

Here is how insurance agent C. Steven Tucker explained it this weekend:

This year, for the first time in 20 years I can not even quote a replacement product because Barack Obama has issued a GAG ORDER to the health insurance industry instructing them not to disclose their January 2015 health insurance rates until after the mid-term elections. This is unprecedented. Normally health insurance premiums are released for public viewing 60 days before the January 1st effective date. Where are the reports on these cancellations and the gag order from NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN? The only news organization that I am aware of that has reported on any of this is the Fox News channel. I can guarantee you one thing, not one of my clients who received a cancellation notice is voting Democrat on Tuesday.

This is once again proof that healthcare is not about health for this most corrupt president in American history. It is politics all the way through for this man.

Your health doesn’t matter to Barack Obama. He cares only about what political benefit he can get from taking over our healthcare industry.

It is also proof that the health of Americans does not interest the news media, either. All they care about is how they can help Democrats.

But this is just a small example of what happens when you allow government to take over an industry like this. It stops being about what ever the industry is supposed to be about and becomes a mere political tool.

Finally, let us point out something else that is glaringly obvious. The GOP is in on this game. After all, you haven’t heard a word about this from any GOP candidate have you? They are clearly running interference for Obama on this by staying silent.

Obamacare Funds Being Used to Push Amnesty for Illegals

Obamacare was supposed to be about getting healthcare for those Americans–I emphasize, Americans–who fell through the system and were un-insured. But, like all government programs, it has failed to do what it set out to do. Worse, now we find healthcare dollars being used to push amnesty for illegals.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) recently demanded to know why Obamacare money is going to a campaign to push amnesty. Smith wrote a letter to House Appropriations Chair Harold Rogers (R-KY) and demanded that the program be defunded.

Smith points to a $15 million grant hidden in Obamacare’s Prevention and Public Health Fund given to the California Endowment, a purported healthcare agency in the Golden State.

In Obama’s America all the IRS needs to take all your money, freeze your accounts, and arrest you is their opinion that your assets might be suspicious. No warrants are needed, no proof of any actual crime is required. All the IRS needs is its say so and your life can be turned upside down.

A story in The New York Times reports on how the abusive, overly powerful IRS destroys lives with impunity. One woman who runs a small restaurant had all her assets stolen by the IRS and never returned even though she has never been charged with any violations of the tax code or breaking any laws.

And this woman will not likely get her money back because the forfeitures are not held until the government finally figures out if there is any guilt involved, either. No, that money is immediately doled out to the various law enforcement agencies involved in the theft and is immediately spent.

Houston, TX: City Officials Demand Local Ministers Turn Over Sermons to Screen for ‘Hate Speech’

October 15, 2014 | Filed Under 1st Amendment, Censorship, Christianity, Civil Rights, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Free Speech, Freedom, Government Corruption, Liberals, Liberty, Progressives, Regulation, Religion, Texas, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

In Houston, Texas, liberals are again at the forefront of violating the Constitution to aide their special interest groups by oppressing both freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

City officials of the left-wing city have obtained a subpoena demanding that local ministers and pastors supply their sermons to the city ahead of time so that officials can screen them for “hate speech” against gays and most especially words against the openly gay mayor of Houston, Annise Parker.

The city also says that those ministers who refuse to turn in their sermons for approval by city officials, they will be held in contempt of court.

So much for all those silly Constitutional rights, and stuff, eh?

But the city council is getting push back and rightfully so.

“Political and social commentary is not a crime,” Christina Holcomb, attorney for the pastors, said. “It is protected by the First Amendment.”

USA Falls to 12th Place in World Economic Freedom

In the year 2000 the USA ranked second on the Economic Freedom of the World report. Now, in 2014, the USA has fallen to 12th place.

That’s right, the country founded on capitalism and economic freedom has been steadily losing ground among the most free nations as our system declines into welfare dependency, government sponsored crony capitalism (which isn’t capitalism at all but fascism), and big government, regulatory strangulation.

The CATO Institute puts out its annual report measuring the economic freedom of the nations of the world and this year the leader in global economic freedom is Hong Kong. The rest of the top ten are as follows: Singapore; New Zealand; Switzerland; Mauritius; United Arab Emirates; Canada; Australia; Jordan; and, tied for 10th is Chile and Finland.

And what of the United States?

Historical Ignorance: Anti-Gun TV President Claims Slavery is ‘In The Constitution’

October 10, 2014 | Filed Under ABC, Anti-Americanism, Bill of Rights, Civil Rights Act, Civil War, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Entertainment, Ethics, Founders, Government Corruption, History, Liberals, Media, Progressives, Revolutionary War, Slavery, TV, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The faux President of the United States on the ABC TV show Scandal gave one of those typically left-wing TV speeches that is more like an uninformed screed meant to push a leftist agenda than truthful commentary. In this case the actor pretending to be president scorned the Second Amendment and then said incorrectly that slavery was enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

On the TV show, “President” Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) noted that the Second Amendment was “set in stone” in the Constitution, then as an aside said, “So was slavery, by the way.”

No it wasn’t… by the way. It is a lie the left tells.

In the show the “president’s” son was killed in a mass school shooting sending this “President” into his screed.

Here was the relevant part of the segment.

Mother Upset Over Islam-Promoting School Assignment

October 8, 2014 | Filed Under 1st Amendment, Anti-Americanism, Children, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Islam, Islamofascism, Jihad, Liberals, Michigan, PCism, Progressives, Public School, Religion, Society/Culture, Terrorism, Warner Todd Huston, Western Civilization | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The mother of a Michigan high school student was shocked to learn that her daughter was assigned a class project that was clearly deigned to promote Islam. Worse, it was a project meant to promote Islam to 3rd graders.

The Michigan parent found that her 10th-grade daughter was assigned the task of designing a brochure that could explain the wonders of Islam in terms that a 3rd grader could understand. The woman’s daughter was told that the purpose of the brochure would be to “introduce Islam to 3rd graders.”

This parent jumped to Facebook to tell her friends and family how shocked she was over the assignment. (Not long afterward she deleted her posts at the request of the school’s principal.)

“This assignment upset me because they are presenting Allah as the same God of the Christians and Jews. This paper, in my opinion, is promoting Islam by describing Allah’s names as ‘beautiful’. To me this is not simply factual like it should be,” Mother Jennette Hall said.

Politico Illustrates Story on GOP Racism With Photo of Democrat George Wallace

October 4, 2014 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Civil Rights Act, Civil War, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, History, Slavery, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

To illustrate an article about racism in the Republican Party, Politico dipped into American history and oddly dug up a photo of Democrat segregationist George Wallace.

Claiming that “the seeds of America’s dysfunction were planted 50 years ago,” and going on to say that “the ugly politics of race had everything to do with it,” Doug McAdam and Karen Kloos indulged the decades old liberal claim that the political parties have somehow switched places from 50 years ago. Now the GOP is the racist party and the Democrats are the accepting ones, the authors contend.

Despite that George Wallace was an unreconstructed Democrat segregationist and so were his followers, Politico tars the GOP with the racists and Dixiecrats of the 1960s.

Arkansas Shooting Range Owner Declares Business ‘Muslim-Free Zone’

-By Warner Todd Huston

The owner of an Arkansas gun range has announced that no Muslims are welcome at her shooting range because Islam “demands” that Muslims kill non-believers.

Jan Morgan, the owner of the Hot Springs, Arkansas-based Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range has said in a long post that she sees no reason why she has to open her business to people that want to kill her.
