Philadelphia Vs. Cleveland: Divided We StandBy Patrick J. Buchanan on July 28, 2016, 6:10 pm
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”...By Washington Watcher on July 28, 2016, 5:31 pm
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?By Ann Coulter on July 27, 2016, 5:57 pm
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.
But as the country reels from the cold-blooded murder of five policemen in Dallas and three in Baton Rouge, Lezley McSpadden (right) mother of Mike Brown, America's most famous cop-assaulting criminal, appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention.
Welcome to Hillary's convention, celebrating the anti-police group Black Lives Matter!

Is Europe Burning? Events Propelling Trump Into White HouseBy James Kirkpatrick on July 27, 2016, 12:16 am
- 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 TrumpBy Richard LaMountain on July 25, 2016, 10:38 pm

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 >>
