Philadelphia Vs. Cleveland: Divided We Stand

Wednesday was the best night of Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Joe Biden, Tim Kaine and Barack Obama testified to her greatness and goodness and readiness to be president. And all saw in the Republican Convention in Cleveland a festival of darkness and dystopia.

Nor is this unusual. For, as the saying goes, Read more >>

The Democrats Go Full Merkel: Platform Says Immigration To Remake America According To “Our [Their] Values”...

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has just described the recent attacks by Muslim “refugees” as “shocking, depressing and terrifying” but is still sticking with her incredible decision to allow their mass influx—over a million last year [ Germany's Merkel stands by refugee policy despite 'terrifying' attacks , By Angela Dewan and Jason Hanna, CNN, July 28, 2016]. Of course the attacks are not “shocking” at all but entirely predictable. Merkel simply doesn’t care; Germany’s welfare is not her priority. Ominously, this is the woman Hillary Clinton wishes to “emulate” [ Hillary Clinton on Running and Governing as a Woman , by Jay Newton Small, Time, January 7, 2016]. Clinton is also planning to unleash an Amnesty/ Immigration Surge if elected—and the 2016 Democratic Platform has now dropped all pretense that that this will benefit America

Last Fall, Merkel famously proclaimed: “Germany is a strong country, we will manage” [ Defiant Merkel vows to stand by refugee policy despite security fears, Reuters, November 25, 2015]. This was significant because of the implicit acknowledgement that the “refugees” were a burden. Even accepting that Germany is strong enough to “manage” refugees, a nation does not need to “manage” peace, prosperity, and freedom. It manages, or at least attempts to manage, recessions, famine, and war.

BLM At The DNC: When Do “The Mothers Of ISIS” Speak?

See, earlier  The Mothers of the Movement–Hillary And The DNC Go All In For Dead Thugs

Whatever questionable choices were made at the Republican National Convention last week, I didn't hear of a single speaker whose sole accomplishment was raising a delinquent who attacked a cop.

Is Europe Burning? Events Propelling Trump Into White House

“Events, dear boy, events,” British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan supposedly said when discussing what political leaders most feared. No politician, however skilled, can predict the future. But they can manage expectations and perceptions. And that’s precisely what Donald Trump did with his masterful speech at the Republican National Convention, creating a confirmation bias through which all future terrorist attacks will be interpreted. Since he spoke, Europe has been providing those events.

  • Even as this is written, reports indicate an 84 year old priest was beheaded in his church in Normandy, France by two attackers claiming allegiance to the Islamic State.

  • The day before that, a Syrian refugee in Germany killed one woman and injured two other people by attacking them with a machete.

  • Also Monday, a “failed asylum seeker” attempted to suicide bomb a German music festival, with the BBC reporting it as “Syrian migrant dies in German blast.” New reports indicate he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State [ Bomber who blew himself up in Germany pledged allegiance to Islamic State , by Angela Waters, USA Today, July 25, 2016].

  • Just a few days before that, we had a “German-Iranian”


Oregonians Have Already Shown Immigration Issue Can Carry State For Trump

Will a majority of Oregon voters support a Republican presidential candidate whose signature issue is immigration patriotism—namely, Donald J. Trump? It could happen.

At first glance, the question seems ludicrous: recent years' voting ranks Oregon as among the bluest of states. Still, the 2014 general election saw an interesting development that could—so long as Trump keeps immigration control at the fore of his campaign—portend good things for him.

And as we'll see, some of that good may come, ironically, from the state's most liberal county.

First: Just how blue has Oregon been in recent years? Let's start with the last few presidential elections.

  • In 2012, Oregon voters supported Barack Obama over Mitt Romney 54.2 percent to 42.2 percent.

  • In 2008 Obama over John McCain 56.7 percent to 40.4 percent.

  • In 2004 John Kerry over George W. Bush 51.6 percent to 47.4 percent.

  • In 2000 Al Gore over Bush 47.0 percent to 46.5 percent;

  • In 1996 Bill Clinton over Bob Dole 47.2 percent to 39.1 percent.

(In each of these years, a smattering of independent and third-party candidates won votes as well.)

The last GOP nominee to win the state was Ronald Reagan in 1984—almost a third of a century ago.

Oregon has not elected a Republican governor since 1982. Its current governor is Democrat Kate Brown, for 17 years one of the state legislature's Read more >>

#DNCLeaks: Will Putin Get a Pulitzer?
