The All-Inclusive Democrat Package Deal

The other day I heard some one describe modern liberalism or leftist ideology like an all-inclusive resort. At first I merely chuckled at the thought. But despite the humor I found in it, it struck me as being dead-on accurate.

For those unfamiliar, an all-inclusive resort is the best vacation one will ever experience – but only if you can take advantage of the amenities. You pay one price, and that payment includes everything the resort has to offer.

If you can’t take advantage, or wish more of a bare bones or a-la carte experience, an all-inclusive experience is definitely not for you. An all-inclusive vacation is just that. The customer doesn’t have the option of a-la carte. You pay for all or nothing. It’s like ObamaCare. Everything is included, whether you care to partake or not.

And as I stated – this is also the definition of modern leftism and the Democrat Party. If you are a committed liberal, you are expected to collectively support all leftist causes. It’s all-inclusive. read more

Ignorance of the Law is no Excuse – Unless You’re a Refugee

by: the Common Constitutionalist

From Federal, to States and municipalities, there are an almost immeasurable amount of laws. So many that no one could possibly know them all, much less keep track of them.

What we do know is the phrase, ignorantia legis neminem excusat. Okay – maybe we don’t all know Latin – but we have heard the English translation – Ignorance of Law Excuses No One. It’s legalese that means a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its existence. In other words – if a law says some action (or inaction) is a crime and you commit it, you’re guilty. The principle is also one of the first that students learn in law school. It’s pretty simple and pretty straight forward.

It is unless one happens to be a refugee from some far away land. Then this principle, which is strictly enforced on us law-abiding American citizens, may not. read more

The Left Should be Tried for Inciting Violence

Growing up – most of us were taught that sticks and stones will break our bones, but words can never hurt us. Well, not anymore.

Words, we are told, lead to violence, and on college campuses, it seems words are violence itself.

Although I don’t subscribe to this view, I suppose some can think it true in some instances. It certainly happened in the much publicized case of the then teenage girl who convinced her teenage boyfriend to off himself by means of a car (or truck) exhaust.

We on the right say that this is ridiculous. It may have been the girl’s prodding, but it was the boy’s choice and only his, to act on her insistences. No one forced him to listen to her blather. No one forced him to act.

He and he alone is responsible for his actions – not her. But of course we know by now that this is not how it went down. The girl was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, for talking the weak-willed boy into action. Pathetic!

In a real world filled with reasonable people, this case would have never seen the light of day. A judge would have tossed it out telling the plaintiff to grow up. It was no ones fault but his own. read more

The Best of Fake-Hate

by The College Fix:

Hate-crime hoaxes had a banner year

During the 2016-17 school year, campuses across the nation were plagued by numerous hate crime reports — but so many turned out to be fake.

Often, students confessed to fabricating the incident or submitting a baseless report after police found no evidence. Sometimes they refused to even cooperate with police, making an investigation impossible. Other times officers caught the “victims” red-handed in their own web of lies.

Many examples were inspired by students trying to create and push the narrative of a spike in hate crimes after Donald Trump was elected president.

Here are some of the most outrageous examples from campuses and college students over the past school year. read more

Is the Rainbow Flag’s Orange Stripe a Shout Out to Trump

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A couple of days ago, The Blaze reported that the city of Philthadelphia “Office of LGBT affairs” has recently unfurled a new flag – the multi-colored rainbow LGBTQ+ flag. They just keep adding more letters – and now even a symbol. Talk about a run-on acronym.

So Philadelphia, which has a total debt of $14.3 billion, or $27,500 per taxpayer (the third highest per capita in the nation), has enough money to fund an Office of LGBT Affairs for what is claimed to be 3.9 percent of its population. And I doubt the percentage is that high.

Anyway, the Run-On Acronym Society (ROAS) claims the new and improved rainbow flag will “show their support for people of color [POC] who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. We say that we’re inclusive. We celebrate it. Now it’s time to go further.”

The colors they added to show solidarity with the POC are of course brown and black. This may seem inclusive, but to me, this instead shows how racist the ROAS really is, that other-than-hetero POC don’t and can’t identify with the pretty colors that already adorn the flag. read more

WND Exclusive – Our Friends the Saudis Insult the West

Recall the nationwide outrage of American football fans and patriots alike when then San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during a pre-game national anthem.

Every week thereafter he continued his antics, taking a knee, occasionally joined by other know-nothing wealthy black players throughout that season – and for what?

The backlash against Kaepernick was monumental and compounded his collapse as an NFL starting quarterback. So caustic is he that he is literally unable to find employment as even a third-string quarterback. It seems no one wants him.

He was roundly condemned by practically the entire country, save for leftist radicals, anarchists, communists and Black Lives Matter. I supposed that list was a bit redundant, as all are cut from the same red cloth. read more

Students and Faculty Turn on Professor

from Heat Street: 

Snowflakes of Color

The faculty at Evergreen State College sent a letter to students Friday saying they stand behind the protesters who have wreaked havoc on the campus this week and plan to pursue disciplinary action against the target of their demonstrations, Prof. Brett Weinstein.

The Washington college of about 4,000 students erupted in protests last week after Weinstein, a biology professor, told student activists he did not agree with their “Day of Absence” plans. The Day of Absence usually consists of students of color leaving the campus for the day, to bring awareness to their presence and issues. This year, however, student activists wanted all white students and faculty to leave for the day. Weinstein, who supported the Day of Absence tradition in the past, called this year’s plan an act of oppression. read more

Cruz Want’s Trump to Shread the Paris Climate Agreement

from CNN: (Yep – CNN – Go Figure)

OP-Ed from Ted Cruz:

Trump should withdraw from Paris climate pact

Following a successful international tour and the G-7 Summit in Italy, President Trump has an opportunity to relieve our nation of the unfair and economically devastating requirements of the Paris Agreement, the United Nations climate treaty he pledged to rip up during the campaign.

And as soon as possible, President Trump should act on — and keep — his campaign promise.

The agreement, signed by the Obama administration last year, would commit the United States to drastically reducing its carbon emissions while allowing some countries to increase theirs. This, all while doing nothing to meaningfully decrease global temperatures. read more

The Terror Britain Let In

from Katie Hopkins:

At this difficult time, Britain is faced with some hard questions the people charged with protecting us are going to have to answer sooner or later.

The Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi was known to the authorities.

He is believed to have travelled to the Middle East and become radicalised before returning to the UK to cause carnage at a gig in the city where he was born just days later.

As his father and brother were arrested in Libya, security force sources there said the father had links to Al Qaeda and another source claimed the brother ‘was aware of all the details’ of attack plans.

Yet he was allowed to walk back to the UK unchallenged.

Katie Hopkins asks: Who is going to protect our kids from the terror the politicians let in?

What Happened to Trump’s Undying Support of Israel

Why is the Trump administration backing off of the President’s rather definitive campaign declaration to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel-Aviv to its rightful place in Jerusalem?

January 22, 2017

I’m trying my best not to condemn Trump and his people for not doing what he promised (and he did promise), right off of the bat, but I am beginning to wonder and worry on a growing number of campaign promises, just what has changed from campaign to White House.

Now, despite me writing a fair bit about Israel, I don’t have any particular love for, or peculiar fetish regarding the tiny nation. But as most of us are, maybe I’m just a big fan of underdogs.

Every movie ever made about the oppressed, singled-out, or otherwise unnecessarily put-upon underdog, finds those who view, cheering for the little guy.

And it’s always the same story. The underdog is just that. He or she is weaker, slower, smaller, disabled, not as intelligent, etc. – but somehow in the end, finds a way to prevail. It’s the story of David vs. Goliath told over and over again in hundreds of ways.

But not all underdogs are cheered. One in particular evokes the opposite emotional response from many. Of course this is the aforementioned Israel. The only nation hated by more of the Globe than the United States of America. read more
