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

EVEN THE NEW ENGLAND COLONIES HAD ‘GUN LAWS’

Recently, Texas has been at the forefront of relaxing restrictions on guns. It’s joining the ranks of “open-carry” states and more controversially, will soon (in August) be one of only eight states that allow concealed carry weapons on public college campuses. However, seven states have written into their laws exceptions limiting certain areas on campus from their carry laws. Only Utah has a statute specifically naming public colleges and universities as public entities that do not have the authority to ban concealed carry, and thus, all 10 public institutions in Utah allow concealed weapons on their property.

Of course, that’s down south and out west where gun-totin’ is much more common. read more

The Church Militant

The refrain that is heard from the right when they refer to liberal actors is “Shut up and Act.” The same goes for leftist musicians: “Shut up and Sing.” Don’t involve yourselves in matters you know little to nothing about. Leave the politics to politicians, and leave armed conflicts to the military.

Because one is popular, famous and has a large following doesn’t automatically make an actor or musician an authority on matters political or military. Save for a very few, history is not on their side. Not many have gone on to become great political or military leaders. read more

Will ISIS Use Dirty Bomb to Blackmail?

Who doesn’t love the current price of a gallon of gas? I was driving in to my office recently and noticed more than one fuel station posting gas at $1.55 per gallon. When George W. Bush first took office in 2001, the average price of a gallon was $1.55.

Remember back in 2012, during a debate with Mitt Romney Obama said: “When I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse.” So what does it tell us about the present Obama economy that gas prices are now some 30 cents lower than 2009 and in free fall? Sure, it’s great for us consumers – we’re saving a fortune on gas and heating oil – but it’s not great for our nation or the world economy. read more

USA: TODAY’S WEIMAR REPUBLIC?

America is piling up debt like crazy. As of fiscal year 2013, our federal government was borrowing 46 cents of every dollar it spends, with seemingly no end in sight. Our national debt is almost $20 trillion, and unfunded liabilities are approaching a quarter of a quadrillion dollars. Unfortunately, or fortunately, there eventually will be an end. There has to be.

Article I, Section 10, of the Constitution: “No state shall emit bills of credit, make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts, coin money.” The Founding Fathers knew that irresponsible governments would print paper money, backed by nothing, overspend and devalue the currency, causing “inflation” and destroying the economy. But did we listen? Of course not.

In 1971, during the Nixon administration, we officially went off the gold standard and unpinned our paper money from anything of real or intrinsic value. George Santayana is quoted as saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Many question the brilliance of the founders who have warned us of virtually every major mistake our country has made, yet still we don’t heed them. read more

CRUZ: A PROFILE IN COURAGE

I’ve been a Ted Cruz guy from before day one – admiring him, Mike Lee and a few others for standing up to the Washington machine from the minute they showed up in D.C. No one in recent memory has had more of an impact on the Beltway cartel than he – and in such a short period of time.

Cruz told the people of Texas what he would do if elected, and enough of them liked and believed what he said. And unlike virtually every other politician, he has done what he promised – to fight the unconstitutionality of the federal government. This makes Cruz a public servant – not a politician. read more

Let’s Treat Government Like a Sporting Event

Can anyone honestly say that a President Trump would accept not pushing some agenda item he really wanted because it just happened to be unconstitutional?

No, of course not. He would charge his legal team, as Obama does, with finding other historic yet unconstitutional precedents and point to those as justification for his actions. Or like past presidents, just make it up or ignore the document completely. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive – So Obama Isn’t the Smartest Being Ever?

You probably heard former Defense Secretary Robert Gates say last Tuesday that “President Obama thinks he is smarter than his advisers and that he surrounds himself with people who will not question his views.”

As Bruce Willis said in the first “Die Hard” movie: “Welcome to the party, pal!” It’s nice to see others recognizing and admitting what we’ve known for almost a decade.

Yet the left, from day 1, has been propping Obama up as the smartest being alive, possessing talents mere mortals don’t possess. read more
