Obama Is the Biggest Racist Of All

obama_charleston_guns

WASHINGTON — President Obama said the United States has not overcome its history of racism — and he is using the “N-word” to make his case. In an interview, Mr. Obama weighed in on the debate over race and guns that has erupted after the arrest of a white man for the racially motivated shooting deaths of nine black church members in Charleston, South Carolina. “Racism, we are not cured of it,” Mr. Obama said. “And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say n***er in public. That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists ...

Mitt Romney: Confederate flag hateful; take it down

romney_confederate_flag

  The former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Saturday called for the removal of the Confederate flag that flies outside the South Carolina state capitol in Columbia. The flag is at the center of a fierce political debate, in the aftermath of the shooting deaths of nine people at the historic Emanuel AME church in the city on Wednesday. The alleged gunman, 21-year-old Dylann Roof, who is white, was arraigned in court on Friday. All of those who died in the church were black. Using Twitter, Romney said: “Take down the #ConfederateFlag at the SC Capitol. To many, it is ...

John Stossel: Left-Wing Activists Put Politics Before Reality

climategate

This year is the 10th anniversary of a book called “The Republican War on Science.” I could just as easily write a book called “The Democratic War on Science.” The conflict conservatives have with science is mostly caused by religion. Some religious conservatives reject evolution, and some oppose stem cell research. But neither belief has a big impact on our day-to-day lives. Species continue to evolve regardless of what conservatives believe, and if conservatives ban government funding of stem cell research, private investors will continue the work. By contrast, the left’s bad ideas about science do more harm. Many on ...

The Fate of Trans-Pacific Partnership Lies in Republican Hands

obama_trade_TPP

Days after President Obama’s trade agenda was scuttled by members of his own party, the White House and congressional Republicans have found no clear path forward, raising doubts about what was supposed to be one of the administration’s final legislative accomplishments. Republican leaders vowed Monday to press ahead in their rare alliance with the Obama administration against Democratic leaders and organized labor over a trade measure that the White House says is crucial to securing an ambitious 12-nation Pacific Rim pact known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But in a sign of the challenges still ahead, tentative plans to vote again ...

Dear GOP: Hillary Clinton is trolling you on voting rights. Don’t take the bait!

hillary_benghazi

By Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry Hillary Clinton is calling for sweeping changes to America’s voting system, including automatically registering all citizens to vote when they turn 18. The move is begging for a Republican response — and they shouldn’t give her one. To be sure, voting rights has been a live political issue in recent years. Conservatives, alarmed by the prospect of voter fraud, have passed many state-level laws tightening up voting laws. Progressives have argued that this is an effort to depress turnout among demographics more likely to vote Democratic, especially the poor and African-Americans. Now, as a conservative, I have seen ...

Hillary Clinton’s Treatment of Press Shows Contempt for the American Public

Hillary_face

By Jean Card – US News & World Report More and more people think the phrase “is honest and trustworthy” does not apply to Hillary Clinton. I should certainly hope so. The fact that, according to the most recent polling, 42 percent think that phrase still does apply to her seems almost more newsworthy. Who still trusts this person? For argument’s sake, let’s even put aside the email scandal. The Benghazi questions. The Clinton Foundation stink. The Sidney Blumenthal weirdness. Any and all of those rightfully call Clinton’s trustworthiness into question. But even without the litany of impropriety and scandal, how ...

O’Malley Joins Presidential Race

martin_o'malley

By Alexis Simendinger – RealClearPolitics BALTIMORE, Md. – Martin O’Malley had a lot of competition Saturday as he announced his candidacy to become the president who will “rebuild the American dream.” Neighborhoods of the city he once governed as mayor are in enough upheaval over race and violent policing that his boasts of being tough on crime and resolving Baltimore’s urban problems have been undercut. And implicit in his campaign launch was the acknowledgement that Hillary Clinton, the rival he paints as an elitist Democratic dinosaur, is nonetheless outpolling him by 51 points in the RealClearPolitics average. A modest outdoor crowd ...
