Half Chicken is Better than None

Real First Lady Ivanka Trump May be a Problem

Okay – this isn’t disturbing at all! The unelected, unaccountable liberal daughter of the president-elect, having the stones to call members of the United States Congress to begin to pressure them into “getting the ball rolling” on yet another unconstitutional and massive government program – her signature cause – freebie child care legislation. I can just see her saying: “If you don’t – I’ll tell my daddy.”

A Unique Look at Woodrow Wilson

Stu Burguiere of the Blaze and side kick of Glenn Beck present a nice little history lesson regarding one of the left’s heroes, progressive icon and 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson.

Enjoy the history lesson: read more

Many Fictional Presidents Better Than Our Choices

from the Blaze:

These 14 presidents from works of fiction are each still more realistic a choice than the 2016 election cycle holds for us. Let’s take a look at these fictional commanders-in-chief.

For each of our “candidates,” I’ve given you a defining quote and a short summary of why they made us truly believe they could be presidents.

LGBT Has Issues With Chick-fil-A

It had been a week of awareness-raising at a Pennsylvania high school — teen suicide, disabilities and other issues were marked by students wearing specifically colored T-shirts each day in recognition of each issue.

On the final day last Friday, Bangor Area High School’s Gay-Straight Alliance — which organized the weeklong project — encouraged students to wear rainbow-colored T-shirts to draw attention to LGBT issues.

But during televised morning announcements at the school, two of the students seen onscreen wore Chick-fil-A shirts instead, senior Erin Snyder told the Morning Call.

And then the backlash began. read more

“Dirty” Harry to Mess With the Constitution

The Senate is scheduled to hold a procedural vote next week on amending the Constitution to let Congress regulate campaign spending.

One was Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission, which said the government cannot impose limits on corporate spending on politics-related communications. The other was McCutcheon vs. FEC, which terminated aggregate limits on what people can contribute as individuals. read more

Cochran Won Because McDaniel Wouldn’t “Play Ball”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So I guess conservative Chris McDaniel should just take his ball and go home. There was no foul play. Thad Cochran won fair and square.

Loser McDaniel complaining about how he lost the election is just sour grapes or according to Jamelle Bouie at Slate.com, “McDaniel is saying, ‘I would have won if it weren’t for those meddling liberals’”. He described McDaniel as a “Scooby Doo villain”.

Bouie quotes McDaniel: “There is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual, about a Republican primary that’s decided by liberal Democrats”, that, “35,000 Democrats crossed over”.

Well Jamelle, what I find a bit odd is all these liberal Democrats, of which you are undoubtedly one, coming to the defense of some old, white, southern Republican politician. To me, that’s more of an anomaly than black Democrats voting for Cochran.

But Bouie isn’t the only one running to Cochran’s aid. He also quotes Mississippi’s other senator: “As Sen. Roger Wicker, the junior senator from the state said to reporters on Wednesday, ‘Broadening the base of the party? Asking more Mississippians to participate in the ballot that’s going to determine the next Senator? No, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that’”.

Oh, so that’s what this sudden “outreach” to liberal black voters was? read more
