Recount? Careful What You Wish For, Hill | Michael J. Hurd, Ph.D. | Living Resources Center

Like heroin addicts craving their fix, government-addicts from Hillary Clinton on down literally cannot breathe or survive without government power. Without politics, their lives have no meaning. They’re professional busybodies, seeking to rule over others as a substitute for authentic, reality-based self-esteem or achievement. For Hillary Clinton in particular, the presidency was the ultimate goal of everything. Not because it was the office once held by brilliant souls like Washington, Jefferson or Madison; not because she wished to expand on their legacy of liberty, individual rights and a limited federal government; but because of her personal quest for power over others.

The Last Communist City | City Journal

As for the free health care, patients have to bring their own medicine, their own bedsheets, and even their own iodine to the hospital. Most of these items are available only on the illegal black market, moreover, and must be paid for in hard currency—and sometimes they’re not available at all. Cuba has sent so many doctors abroad—especially to Venezuela, in exchange for oil—that the island is now facing a personnel shortage. “I don’t want to say there are no doctors left,” says an American man who married a Cuban woman and has been back dozens of times, “but the island is now almost empty. I saw a banner once, hanging from somebody’s balcony, that said, DO I NEED TO GO TO VENEZUELA FOR MY HEADACHE?”

Shoreline Gentry Are Fake Climate Victims - WSJ

Only in the second half of a 3,099-word opus is the truth not so much revealed as hinted. Halting and piecemeal reform of the federal flood-insurance subsidy program that has so benefited wealthy seaside homeowners is why beach-front housing prices are being reset.

A Sarasota couple found it harder to sell their Florida house when shoppers noticed a $7,000 annual flood insurance bill. “This experience will become more common, economists say, as the federal government shifts away from subsidizing flood insurance rates to get premiums closer to reflecting the true market cost of the risk,” the paper notes in passing.

What those Dakota Access Pipeline protesters don’t tell you - Orlando Sentinel

Pipeline protesters may have a tight grip on media coverage of the pipeline, but they have a demonstrably loose grip on the facts. The truth — as documented not by the company but by the federal court system — is that pipeline approvals were not rushed, permits were not granted illegally, and tribal leaders were not excluded. These are proven facts upheld by two federal courts.

If only this side of the story were getting the same attention as the other side. Perhaps judges should start announcing their rulings by megaphone while standing beside a few media-attracting celebrities.

American journalism is collapsing before our eyes | New York Post



Donald Trump may or may not fix his campaign, and Hillary Clinton may or may not become the first female president.  But something else happening before our eyes is almost as important: the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.

The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and
the Obama White House. They are working hand-in-hand with what was
considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.

The shameful display of naked partisanship by the elite media is unlike anything seen in modern America.

Donald Trump’s Lincolnesque Moment | Frontpage Mag



Trump being Trump offers this constituency that has turned its back
on Republicans for half a century this deal maker: “Look at how much
African-American communities have suffered under Democratic Control. To
those hurting, I say: what do you have to lose by trying something
new?’

In the boldest imaginable way, Donald Trump is doing
what Republicans have been talking about doing for a generation but have
failed miserably to achieve – creating a “big tent” and opening up the
party to new constituencies, in particular to minority constituencies.
The fact that at the moment he is nonetheless distrusted by minorities
is partly the result of his flamboyant carelessness with language during
his extemporaneous riffs, but mainly because of the vicious distortions
of his words and character his unscruplous Democratic enemies and their
media whores. These progressives pretend to care about African
Americans but are content to let generations of inner city minorities
and their children live blighted lives so long as they can be bussed to
the polls every November and cast the votes that keep them in power.


Not to forget the #NeverTrumpers on the Republican side. These
defectors are among the loudest slanderers, smearing Trump as a racist
and a bigot when he is obviously the very opposite of that. In fact,
when you look at what Trump is actually saying and actually doing, Never
Trumpism appears as the newest racism of low expectations. To turn
their backs on Trump conservatives must write off the inner cities and
their suffering populations, regarding them as irredeemable, and
unpersuadable, while leaveing them to their fate. Fortunately there is a
large constituency in the Republican Party that resonates to Trump’s
message of a new Republican Party and a new hope for all Americans -
white and non-white – who have been left behind.

What's wrong with equality? by Roger Kimball - The New Criterion

What he is talking about, he writes, is the simple fact that some people are better than others—smarter, harder working, more learned, more productive, harder to replace. Some ideas are better than others, some values more enduring, some works of art more universal. Some cultures, though we dare not say it, are more accomplished than others and therefore more worthy of study. Every corner of the human race may have something to contribute. That does not mean that all contributions are equal…. It is scarcely the same thing to put a man on the moon as to put a bone in your nose.
