Dem platform 2012: How’d donkey party do?

On June 8 and 9, the Democrats had there first in a series of meetings to discuss their 2016 election platform. On their Facebook page, they described it as “the first in a series of regional events designed to engage every voice in the party.”

This two-day gathering could have taken place in Flint, Michigan (water crisis), Ferguson, Missouri (racial unrest) or Charlotte, North Carolina (transgender), but instead, it took place in Washington, D.C., in order to – you know – engage “every” voice in the party, because that’s where the little people whom leadership claim to represent would surely be. It certainly had nothing to do with the concentration of lobbyists, Big Education and labor union thugs and other assorted cronies who just happen to reside in D.C.

Because the process has just begun, there are no details to report as to specific platform agenda items. However, on Friday, the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) did change their official convention banner. It’s quite lovely and tells us of at least one of their major platform issues at the 2016 convention. read more

OUR FOUNDING DOCUMENT: STABLE OR FLUID?

There has been a great debate roiling in America for more than a century: whether or not the Constitution is carved in stone or a “living document.”

Conservatives wish to govern in accordance with the Constitution and the “original intent” of those who crafted the document. I would agree with this, as obviously would the founders.

In 2006 Todd Gaziono of the Heritage Foundation said: “Original intent is the only legitimate means of interpretation under our written Constitution, and all other philosophies are illegitimate.” Mr. Gaziono is, of course, correct.

That same year Elliott Mincberg, the then-vice president of the George Soros ultra lefty group People for the American Way said: “It was the framers’ intent that the Constitution adapt to changing circumstances.” In other words, it’s a living or malleable Constitution. This has been the progressive movement’s mantra from Woodrow Wilson to today. read more

THE DRIVERLESS CAR: JUST SAY NO

It seems driverless cars have gone from something dreamed up by writers of science fiction movies to, in the coming years, a certain reality.

Movies like “Minority Report,” “Demolition Man” and “Total Recall” all had driverless vehicles. Even the original and equally cheesy Batman TV series from the ’60s featured a driverless Batmobile. Of course, plenty of futuristic movies have also featured flying cars, and that hasn’t worked out so well – at least not so far. Weren’t we supposed to have them by now?

Some, including me, think that the driverless car is a bad idea – if for no other reason, that I enjoy driving. I prefer to be behind the wheel and in charge. I don’t want some robot or empty seat chauffeuring me about.

Still, there are more than enough bad drivers on the road who might benefit from a driverless car. I experienced one, almost having a literal run-in, just the other day. You’ve seen them out there. I’m driving down the road and a car is stopped at an intersection hundreds of yards ahead. I see her, and it sure appears she sees me. She waits until I’m almost upon her and pulls out, crossing traffic just feet in front of me. She could have used such a computer to usurp her pitiful processing skill. read more

Keep the Government Away from Facebook

So Facebook is liberal, or at least has a left bias. What a revelation. What high-tech type company isn’t. I mean, really – Google, Apple, Microsoft – they’re all run by libs, and most who work for them also tilt left. These companies all have this in common. How is it a surprise to anyone?

They have another thing in common. They are also private corporations and, as such, should be able to do whatever they wish regarding the content they allow or rank. This is not to say we on the right can’t complain or make a stir when we see bias. read more

Is Newt the right choice for Trump?

The rumor mill is cranking into high gear wondering who Trump is likely to choose as his running mate. So far several names have surfaced.

The L.A. Times wrote, “Trump has benefited from his outsider status, but the billionaire businessman has said his vice-presidential pick will likely have political experience.” And we all know what that means. In case you don’t, this is why having political experience is important to The Donald. He recently told George Stephanopoulos during an interview on “Good Morning America”: “I would like to have somebody who could truly be good with respect to dealing with the Senate and dealing with Congress – getting legislation passed. Working toward something where we’re not signing executive orders every three days like President Obama does.”

Trump Will Just be a Better Dictator than Obama

For years we on the right have called Obama a want-to-be dictator – mainly due to his usurpation of the legislative branch through his reckless and unconstitutional use of executive orders. It seems that practically every month we discover Obama is doing another end around Congress, because, as he says, we just can’t wait for them.

So instead of living with the reality of his office and the limitations the Constitution places on the executive, he writes legislation with the stroke of his pen. It’s outrageous and possibly the No. 1 complaint Republicans have of our current president.

We all know, regardless of intention, this is not the way the founders set things up. This is truly the stuff of dictators. Even the king of England at the time of the American Revolution didn’t have such power over the British Parliament. read more

Is it time for Israel to kick them all out?

 Frankly, if it were up to me, I’d kick them all out. It’s evident none of the Arabs who surround Israel want peace with the Jewish nation, and all at one time or another have refused even to recognize its existence.

Since its founding in 1948, the state of Israel has always wanted peace with its Arab neighbors. It is the Arab nations who have been threatening, provoking or outright warring with them.

To prove this to be so, one need only ask him or herself: If the Arabs all laid down their arms tomorrow, what would Israel do? Of course, nothing. They would live in peace. Now ask yourself if Israel did the same, what the Arabs would do. They would attack the following day, if they waited that long. This is all one needs to know about the dynamics of the region. read more

ELECTRIC CARS: ANOTHER IDIOTIC GOV’T MANDATE

About a month ago, Elon Musk announced Tesla’s release of the Model 3 – an affordable Tesla, the all-electric car that is supposed to revolutionize the electric car market, because it’s an electric that doesn’t look like one.

The “greenies” have been all atwitter over it, as if this zero-emission vehicle will mark the beginning of the end of the polluting gas-powered car.

Whether it will or won’t (and it won’t) is almost immaterial, because governments are already proposing bans on gas- and diesel-powered vehicles. read more

What The Left Doesn’t Get About Deportation

A few days ago I read an article on the lefty website The Nation. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, but it’s good to keep up with what the enemy is thinking from time to time. And believe you me – today’s left is our enemy.

The article was entitled, “How Many Presidents Does It Take to Deport 11 Million People?”

I thought, gee, whatever can this be about? Leftist rag plus illegal aliens – couldn’t have anything to do with the Trump and Cruz proposals to deport all illegals, can it? Well, son of a gun – lucky guess, because, sure enough, the subtitle said it all: “There’s nothing realistic about the deportation fantasies of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. But that doesn’t make them any less terrifying.” read more

John Kasich: Like a Lying, Cheating Husband

Who’s tired of seeing and hearing from Mr. Nice Guy, John Kasich? I think one of the reasons he’s still around is because people think he is at least a good honest “nice guy” who plays it straight and has a proven economic record.

Still, how many more times do we need to hear that he, as chairman of the House Budget Committee in the ’90s, balanced the federal budget? Every stump speech, every debate we hear him say, “I’m the only person on this stage who actually was the chief architect of balancing the federal budget. It’s not a theory for me. … You have to know how to put everything together. And you know, I spent 10 years of my life to get there.”

What he claims is a lie, yet no one ever calls him on it. They should, because he’s a lying cheater – and he knows it – and so, too, should everyone. Maybe if more people did, he’d be gone already.

Allow me to explain it this way. read more
