The Danger of President Pence

At The New Yorker by Jane Mayer
On September 14th, the right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, who last year published a book titled “In Trump We Trust,” expressed what a growing number of Americans, including conservatives, have been feeling since the 2016 election. The previous day, President Trump had dined with Democratic leaders at the White House, and had impetuously agreed to a major policy reversal, granting provisional residency to undocumented immigrants who came to America as children.

Republican legislators were blindsided. Within hours, Trump disavowed the deal, then reaffirmed it. Coulter tweeted, “At this point, who doesn’t want Trump impeached?” She soon added, “If we’re not getting a wall, I’d prefer President Pence.”Trump’s swerve did the unthinkable—uniting Coulter and liberal commentators. After Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea, Gail Collins, the Times columnist, praised Vice-President Mike Pence as someone who at least “seems less likely to get the planet blown up.”

The Beginning of the End of Progressive Domination?

At FrontPageMag  by Bruce Thornton

 For over forty years the left has been successfully reshaping American culture. Social mores and government policies about sexuality, marriage, the sexes, race relations, morality, and ethics have changed radically. The collective wisdom of the human race that we call tradition has been marginalized or discarded completely.

The role of religion in public life has been reduced to a private preference. And politics has been increasingly driven by the assumptions of progressivism: internationalism privileged over nationalism, centralization of power over its dispersal in federalism, elitist technocracy over democratic republicanism, “human sciences” over common sense, and dependent clients over autonomous citizens.

But the election of Donald Trump, and the overreach of the left’s response to that victory, suggest that we may be seeing the beginning of the end of the left’s cultural, social, and political dominance.

Candidate’s Challenging Dianne Feinstein Because She’s Too Far Right

At Independent Sentinel  by S.Noble

Just when you think the candidates for the Senate from California can’t possibly get worse, along comes the president of the California Senate, Kevin de León,. The far-left, open borders Progressive will challenge the 84-year old Senator Feinstein.

The Los Angeles Democrat announced via email Sunday that he’s now ready to run on his radical progressive record on climate change, women’s rights, quality [leftist] education [with free college for all], and immigration reform (open borders).

Kevin de León, [née Leon] was one of the movers and shakers behind the new sanctuary state law, laws banning landlords cooperating with ICE, and every open border law. He has stated that half his own family is here illegally. In other words, lawbreakers are now deciding the course of our politics and have more power than citizens, at least they do in California. These laws protect dangerous criminals including MS-13.


PBS Airs Anti-Pruitt Documentary Funded By Environmentalist Group Backer

At Free Beacon  by E. Harrigton

A new PBS Frontline documentary that paints Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt as a tool for the fossil fuel industry received major funding from a group that has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to environmentalist activists like the Sierra Club.

The documentary, "War on the EPA," received major support from the Kendeda Fund, an Atlanta-based nonprofit focused on the environment and sustainability.

The documentary features interviews with numerous Obama administration backers, including Gina McCarthy, the former EPA administrator, and Betsy Southerland, a former EPA director making $250,000 who claimed earlier this year she resigned in protest because of the Trump administration's budget. Southerland was eligible for early retirement and told coworkers she was retiring because of family issues.

Experts Warn of National Security Risks from DACA

At Lifezette byBrendan Kirby

As Congress debates amnesty for the so-called “dreamers” — beneficiaries of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act — some advocates of tighter immigration enforcement urge lawmakers to address an issue that has hardly been considered: national security.

As Congress debates amnesty for the so-called “dreamers” — beneficiaries of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act — some advocates of tighter immigration enforcement urge lawmakers to address an issue that has hardly been considered: national security.

While four out of five people who received protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were born in Mexico, a small number come from countries that could pose security concerns because they are state sponsors of terrorism, or have governments too weak to provide relevant information to U.S. authorities.

Disrupt This!

At Powerline by Tim Johnson

Tim Marshall is the provost of the university known as The New School. A friend forwards Marshall’s email on Curriculum Disruption Week with the assurance that “this is not a parody.” It’s not a parody, but it is almost funny! One might also say the descent to hell is easy.

It turns out that we are in the middle of Curriculum Disruption Week. Provost Marshall announces:
Leading up to the 400th anniversary of the first Africans arriving in Jamestown, Virginia, we are encouraging the New School community to engage in evaluating how this affects us.

From October 12-18, that effort, 400 Years Of Inequality, is propelled by a week of “curriculum disruption” in which classes throughout the university will be encouraged to “take a break from business as usual” and think of how the class’s subject area relates to 400 years of inequality, an effort led by Mindy Fullilove, William Morrish, Robert Sember, and Maya Wiley.

The diversity of perspectives and breath [sic] of the conversation will be transformative for us and we hope will launch a national engagement with this history and its implications.

How Obama holdovers are sowing the seeds for another subprime collapse

At Powerline  by Paul Mirengoff

Paul Sperry,writing in the New York Post, warns that “a pair of top Obama-appointed bank regulators still serving in the Trump administration could spark another mortgage meltdown by lowering credit standards and encouraging risky lending practices.” Sperry is the author of The Great American Bank Robbery: The Unauthorized Report About What Really Caused the Great Recession.

The two Obama officials are Mel Watt, who is serving a special five-year term as head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and Richard Cordray, head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau until the end of 2018. According to Sperry, Watt, a former liberal congressman, is pushing the mortgage-lending giants he regulates — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — to offer home loans to deadbeat borrowers with shaky credit. This practice led to the housing market crash that threw the U.S. into recession less than ten years ago.

Meanwhile, says Sperry, Cordray has launched a crackdown on credit reporting bureaus for alleged errors and bias, leading the industry to strip some negative information from credit reports used by home lenders.

Trump could actually make Americans feel sorry for the media

At NYPost

President Trump has a legitimate beef with the coverage he’s getting from much of the news media. But his latest response to that coverage could make his press critics look like the victims.
The president was furious over an NBC News report that he’d once demanded a ten-fold increase in the US nuclear arsenal. He denied the story, saying it’s “frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write.”

So far, so good. But then he started making what sound like threats: “Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked.”

Of course, TV networks (unlike individual stations) aren’t licensed, so there’s nothing to revoke. And the print press, which he’s also railed against, is protected by the First Amendment.

But it still sounded like a president threatening to use federal power to close down outlets that cross him — which would be tyranny, and a violation of his oath to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution.

Why Are Millennials Wary of Freedom?


Young Americans seem to be losing faith in freedom. Why?
According to the World Values Survey, only about 30 percent of Americans born after 1980 believe it is absolutely essential to live in a democratic country, compared with 72 percent of Americans born before World War II. In 1995, 16 percent of Americans in their late teens and early adulthood thought democracy was a bad idea; in 2011, the number increased to 24 percent.

Full article:

[Shaw: This group of young people have gone through HS and college hearing about how unfair things are in America. They have heard over and over that America is hated in the world. They are constantly hearing on left-state media and left-state late night shows is evil and racist. They have witnessed eight years of Democracy's economy making them poor with no advancement.]

'New York Times' to Its Reporters: Knock Off the Partisan Tweeting

At PJ Media by Micheal Walsh

I've been banging on about this journalistic disgrace on Twitter (@dkahanerules) for months, and finally even the Times has had enough. 
The New York Times announced on Friday an updated and expanded set of guidelines for our journalists’ use of social media.
The new guidelines underscore our newsroom’s appreciation for the important role social media now plays in our journalism, but also call for our journalists to take extra care to avoid expressing partisan opinions or editorializing on issues that The Times is covering.
In the interest of transparency, we’ve included the complete guidelines below, along with an introductory memo sent to the newsroom by Dean Baquet, our executive editor.
There was a time, in the not-too-distant past, when the Times wouldn't even allow its reporters on television, so as not to compromise their professional integrity. But since the beginning of the Trump administration, it has sat by and let its White House correspondents, Maggie Haberman and Glenn "Hack" Thrush, merrily voice their contempt for the president, his staff, and his political party multiples times per day.

McCarthy:Trump Faithfully Executes Obamacare; Media, Democrats Go Nuts

At National Review by Andrew C. McCarthy

In report after sky-is-falling report, the journalism wing of the media-Democrat complex castigates the president over his decision to — as the New York Times put it — “scrap subsidies to health insurance companies that help pay out of pocket costs of low-income people.

” These subsidy payments are “critical” to sustaining the “Affordable Care Act.” Without them, the Grey Lady frets, “President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement” could “unravel.” To add insult to injury, the paper implies that Trump’s “determination to dismantle [Obamacare] on his own” is a malign attack on the rule of law, coming only after Republicans reneged on their vow to repeal it by legislation.

It’s ironic. Notwithstanding the many outrageous, mendacious things the president says and tweets, the press is aghast that his “fake news” tropes against mainstream-media stalwarts resonate with much of the country.
