Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

February 11, 2018

Today we introduce you to Cheryl Chumley, the online opinion editor for The Washington Times, who has written about the novel approach Macy’s department stores are taking in an effort to boost sagging sales. The former retail giant has been closing stores around the United States.

Chumley writes, “Macy’s recently launched a clothing line for Muslim women, including a collection of hijabs, the scarf-like head coverings used as a show of modesty around men.”

That action has bizarrely won the approval of the National Organization for Women (NOW), a hard left feminist group — despite the fact that Islam tramples women’s rights and forcefully represses any notions of gender equality.  Read the facts, substantiated with excerpts from the Quran.

Take a minute to read Chumley’s excellent commentary

Why higher Ed produces brainwashed liberals

February 10, 2018

American parents want to ensure a solid future for their kids and a degree from a prestigious college is seen as the key component to prosperity.

But consider what the university setting inspires in a field where a majority of professors identify as liberal. A request to grant extra credit to students who attend an upcoming guest lecture by Fox News commentator Katie Pavlich at Kennesaw State University on the subject of “Fake News” and liberal media bias has drawn the ire of one professor.

In an email exchange with the event’s student organizer, Business Law and Ethics Professor Neil Wilkinson agreed to give his 225 students extra credit if they attend, — in accordance with school policy — but also encouraged them to go after Pavlich like a “mad dog in a meat store.”

The event, slated for March 7, is hosted by Young Americans for Freedom and aims to “celebrate women’s month by hearing from speaker Katie Pavlich as she discusses the ways in which media is being used as leftist propaganda,” This is taboo subject, and one worthy of inciting violence against Pavlich.

This survey is dated by four years. Given increasing campus trend towards liberalism, chances are today’s numbers are even more skewed to the left. In 1990, according to survey data by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA, 42 percent of professors identified as “liberal” or “far-left.” By 2014, that number had jumped to 60 percent.  In colleges across the country, far-left professors now dominate disciplines such as English literature, sociology, and history. Few have anything positive to say about capitalism, the Constitution or the United States in general.

This could explain why college age Americans supported Socialist Bernie Sanders for U.S. President even though he was old enough to be their grandfathers and with whom they had little in common, though the lure of free tuition was irresistible.  It’s impossible tot be motivated to cherish, protect or defend a nation in which its citizens are steeped in moral relativism and  there is an appalling lack of understanding of America’s superior system of liberty and freedom based governance.

In a 2016 poll conducted by Harvard, 51 percent of Americans between 18 and 29 rejected capitalism, and a third said they supported socialism, a system based in Marxism, which older Americans understand is destructive to individual rights.  A Pew poll in 2011 showed that the same age bracket had more positive views of socialism than capitalism. Young people who are taught the USA is a flawed nation and believe, as Barack Obama does, in the failed policies of redistributing wealth will eagerly toss our freedoms to the wind and have no desire to protect the rights contained in our founding documents.

Barry Bluestone, a Northeastern University professor was caught on tape telling his students he “wouldn’t mind seeing President Trump dead.” If he had said that about Obama, he’d be charged with inciting  murder. The double standard is indefensible, but the lack of education in America’s educational institutions is far worse.


Fearing the flu, McCain stays in Cornville

February 9, 2018

We finally have an answer regarding John McCain’s month’s long absence from Washington, D.C.  According to his refined daughter Meghan, it has nothing to do with what his Mayo doctors described as Stage 4 glioblastoma, “a particularly aggressive” form of brain cancer, diagnosed in July. In fact, she tells Stephen Colbert he’s made acrazy, amazing recovery.’

Meghan says it’s the fear of contracting the flu that is keeping the 81-year-old away from his senate office, claiming he continues to stay actively involved in events and sends out numerous tweets from his compound in Cornville, AZ. Recently that location has been described as the more upscale Sedona, though having a ranch in rural, adjoining Cornville is nothing to turn up one’s nose at.  He is also a co-sponsor of yet another of his attempts to grant citizenship to illegals. This time he’s ditched his ‘Gang of Eight’ liberals and Republicrats and is partnering with Delaware Democrat Chris Coons on his signature issue of putting nearly 2 million illegals above American citizens and increasing the Democrat voting base, ultimately rendering Republicans to Whig status.

The reason to oppose this latest amnesty scheme have not varied from this 2013 list put out by FAIR.— the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Lies easily spew from McCain’s mouth. Few will forget this con job when he was in campaign mode. Jeff Flake engaged in the same flagrant deceit when elections rolled around. Dropping his senate reelection due to abysmally low polling numbers, Flake now spends his time auditioning for a job on one of the alphabet networks, who will happily hire a GOP defector.

The fact is, it is the staff of Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) who are acting in his stead, turning to Twitter (like the President he so reviles) to announce the latest machinations to push through what they dishonestly refer to as a “bi-partisan immigration compromise.” The seriously ill McCain is not staying out of D.C. due to fear of the flu.  This is another trickery being peddled by his mostly left leaning ideologues providing themselves cover and paychecks in his auto-pilot office.


New jobs, low unemployment counter market correction

February 8, 2018

Although the media have focused on the recent stock market slump from historic highs, Market Watch ( MW) reports today that the U.S. economy added a healthy 200,000 new jobs in January and unemployment remains at a 17-year low of 4.1%, reflecting the best labor market in almost two decades. Headlining its article Jobless claims drop 9,000 to 221,000, remain near 45-year low, the report provides an overview and analysis.

The U.S. Department of Labor released the Unemployment Weekly Claims Report this morning.

The Motley Fool runs an instructive report titled, 6 Things You Should Know About a Stock Market Correction. Just weeks ago the Dow surged to an unprecedented 26,000.

Absent McCain partners with another Dem on amnesty

February 6, 2018

McASS hits the fence

The staff of Arizona’s Senior Senator (ASS) turn to Twitter (like the President he so reviles) to announce the latest effort to push through what they refer to as a “bi-partisan immigration compromise.”

This is what comes out of an office on auto-pilot, run by mostly left-leaning ideologues:

One of the last times John McCain was seen on the banks of the Potomac was July 28, 2017, for the senate vote to repeal Obamacare, which was delayed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell until ASS could participate. He entered the chamber, and seeking maximum effect, dramatically thrust his thumb down in a manner emulating Roman emperor Caligula, denying life to pleading gladiators in the Coliseum.  What was known as the “skinny repeal” was dealt a devastating blow, and failed with his stunning, decisive vote, in which he joined the unified Democrats and two other traitorous RINOs Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.

The duplicitous McCain campaigned on building “the danged fence,” (video) that he now refuses to include in his last ditch amnesty scheme, that grants U.S. citizenship to nearly 2 million DACA illegals who claim they were brought here as children by their invading parents. There is no means of verifying their declarations and the upper age includes those 36 years of age and younger. As we’ve previously written, those repeatedly described as “kids” could well include “30-something” grandparents.

McCain began his efforts to increase the Democrat voting bloc by partnering with Ted Kennedy. This has remained his signature issue over decades. McCain and Jon Kyl  pushed for amnesty. He and Jeff Flake formed the Gang of 8, another amnesty scheme that undermined our national security. That effort included committed leftists Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin and squish Republicrats. Brietbart News names them all and provides a backdrop to this charade.

 The ultimate effect would be to permanently place liberals in power without securing the border or doing anything of significance to halt illegal immigration. Now the ailing and absent McCain is magically partnering with Delaware Democrat Chris Coons on yet another amnesty scheme, minus funding for the wall he supported as a ‘say-anything-to-win’ candidate.  Trust McCain and his surrogate staffers, now in charge of his senate office, at your own peril.


AZ Republic’s prelude to Sinema endorsement

February 5, 2018

‘Sally McCain’ gets axed by her former chums at the AZ Republic

The hot-to-trot Arizona Republic is already making endorsements in the Aug, 28, primary election. Seven months in advance is an unusual jump start, but the left-wing newspaper wants to leave no stone unturned in its ultimate endorsement of CD-9 U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema for the U.S. Senate. The seat is prudently being vacated by one-termer Jeff Flake whose 18% approval numbers are lower than dirt.  This is extremist Kyrsten Sinema, before she altered her appearance and softened her tone.

Last Oct. Flake acknowledged he would not be able to win the Republican primary admitting, “That’s the bottom line.” Not quick on the uptake, he oddly thought he could increase his popularity by referring to Trump-supporting Republican primary voters as “a subset of a subset.”

The first clue that the Hillary endorsing newspaper was no longer standing with Martha McSally — often referred to on this site as Sally McCain, for obvious reasons — was the column by Linda Valdez’ protégé Elvia Diaz.

Diaz’ piece titled,Will the real candidate Martha McSally stand up? (hard copy headline) slams McSally into a no-win spot, exposed for refusing to endorse presidential candidate Donald Trump as she now engages in “kissing up” to President Trump. Reading the article the bigger picture becomes clear:  Beat up on McSally, then take the hatchet to Dr. Kelli Ward and former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, both of whom Diaz eviscerates. Here’s her dire prediction:

’”I’m not impressed with the new McSally. But I would – in a heartbeat – take the former female fighter pilot over Arpaio or Ward. Arizonans must reject the extreme views of the former Maricopa County sheriff and the former state legislator who promotes isolationism in trade and global politics. That kind of philosophy hurts America; we must wake up before it’s too late.”

The article, filled with arrogant bluster foolishly assumes whatever newspaper readers remain are all compliant Republicrats in lock-step with Diaz’ far leftist views and will vote according to instructions in the primary election.

The predictable tag team columns follow, with E. J. Montini, declaring McSally suddenly McSkittish about criticizing the president. Sap queen Laurie Roberts also weighs in.

In 2016 McSally won this warm newspaper endorsement. How times have changed in Liberal Land. Conservatives are supporting Dr. Kelli Ward, a straight talking, principled two-term state senator and physician. Check out her website, see where she stands on the issues of importance and send her a donation.  This is a critically important election with far-reaching national implications.

Arizonans have a rare opportunity to replace deceitful Jeff the Flake. Señor Juan McAmnesty is seriously ill and has not returned to D.C. in weeks while undergoing treatment for brain cancer. Expect another senate seat to open soon.
