    Watch Ocasio-Cortez Totally Fail At Explaining How To Pay For Socialism

    In an interview with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Thursday night, candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to explain how the United States would pay for all of the entitlements the self-described democratic socialist has campaigned on — including fully taxpayer-sponsored Medicare, college tuition, and housing.

    “If people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra wealthy, for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he pays as much as his secretary paid, a 15 percent tax rate, if corporations paid, if we reverse the tax bill, raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent– which is not even as high as it was before — if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there,” she said. “That’s $2 trillion in ten years.” READ MORE...

  • Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right

    Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right

    The ultra-liberal and frequently overturned U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit just ruled that the Second Amendment protects one’s right to carry a gun openly outside of the home.

    “We do not take lightly the problem of gun violence,” the majority opinion in Young v. Hawaii reads. Here’s more, emphasis added.

    For better or for worse, the Second Amendment does protect a right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense. We would thus flout the Constitution if we were to hold that, ‘in regulating the manner of bearing arms, the authority of [the State] has no other limit than its own discretion.’ Reid, 1 Ala. at 616. While many respectable scholars and activists might find virtue in a firearms-carry regime that restricts the right to a privileged few, ‘the enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table.’ READ MORE...

  • How The Peloponnesian War Brought Athens' Golden Age To An End

    How The Peloponnesian War Brought Athens’ Golden Age To An End

    In the seventh lecture of Hillsdale College’s course on the histories of Athens and Sparta, which you can follow along with me here, Victor Davis Hanson, a history fellow at Hillsdale College, explains how the Peloponnesian War brought Athens’ golden age to an end.

    To understand why the Greek city states fought amongst one another to the brink of imploding, one must turn to Thucydides’s account of the war to understand the causes and the context of the conflict. Thucydides, a Greek historian who lived through and chronicled the Peloponnesian War as an Athenian general, developed the idea of the 27-year-long period of intermittent conflicts and battles between the two city-states as being a singular war.

    Democrat Super Lobbyist Gets Immunity To Testify Against Manafort

    Watch ‘The View’ Devolve Into Chaos Between Whoopi And Jeanine Pirro

    Whoopi Goldberg and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro got into a screaming match with one another over Donald Trump during a segment of ABC’s “The View” today.

    “You’re suffering from Trump derangement in this room,” Pirro says, pointing at Whoopi.

    “Did you just point at me?” Whoopi asks.

    “Yesssss!” Pirro replies.

    “Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement,” Whoopi says. “Let me tell you what I have. I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’” READ MORE...

  • Wild Conspiracy Theories Only Obscure Trump's Blunder On Russia

    Wild Conspiracy Theories Only Obscure Trump’s Blunder On Russia

    Much of the media coverage of President Trump’s meeting and subsequent press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday has focused on Trump brushing off a question about whether Russian agents meddled in America’s 2016 election.

    Here’s the clip that’s sucked up all the oxygen in the room.

    Instead of pointing out the obvious — that Trump missed a chance to put America first and, rather than speak truth to power, punted in an effort to shore up relations with Putin throughout ongoing negotiations — his opponents are choosing to voice the stupidest criticism ever. Some are calling his press conference high treason, while others insist it is proof that Trump colluded with Russian officials to steal the election from Hilary. READ MORE...

    Rogin and others eager to ding Trump incorrectly criticized him for something he said about NATO.

    Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin tried really hard to burn President Trump on Monday morning, but failed so hard.

    “Trump told the Finnish President Just now he enjoyed spending time with him at the NATO summit,” Rogin tweeted tagging his CNN colleagues Jake Tapper and Christiane Amanpour. “Finland is not part of NATO. #awkward.”
