Supreme Court rules that illegal aliens can be arrested by ICE after they finish their State sentences. This is a win – but it shows you how far back the left pushed us until Trump came along.

Senator Warren (D-High Cheek Bones) did a town hall in which she proposed $100 trillion in new government spending. Not sure this will be the path to victory. It would be the path to bankruptcy, though. (HT: RSM)

Aside: I am wondering how the Democrats’ “white people: you suck” platform will play with blue collar white voters in 2020.

CNN wins an award named after Cronkite for their Parkland townhall…which makes sense as we’re giving them an award for hackery named after one of the premier hacks in American journalistic history. A lot of people keep saying that Trump is attacking our norms by calling the MSM the “enemy of the people”: the truth of the matter is that Trump is asserting the norm. The only function the MSM has is to provide the truth as best they can determine it. They don’t do that – they lie, they hide the truth, they play politics…and by so doing, they negate the reason for having a free press and, so, become an enemy of the people. They can fix this real easy: just report the truth. That’s all they have to do.

They won’t do it.

Newtown, MA public schools have been teaching the kiddies that Christians and Jews modified their religious books in order to contradict Muslim claims. I can only guess that this is a belief held by some Muslims…but in a time when you can’t even say an Our Father in public schools, why in heck are the kids being taught such things? You know why: the left has made the calculation that Islam is the future…this is part of that.

Some science guys think they’ve figured out, via DNA, who Jack the Ripper was. Seems to make sense – but, it won’t stop people from thinking differently (HT: Ace)

    That makes zero sense to me — other than “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” Islam is complete anathema to Progressivism. Muslims throw homosexuals off building and treat women like sh*t. Simply doesn’t compute.

      The most ardent feminists will become the most ardent Muslims. It is a very simple religion which simple people can readily accept. No priests; no dogma outside of belief in Allah and that Mohammed was his prophet. You can pick and choose which flavor you like and if you are rich, you can secretly violate everything and get away with it. It is the perfect religion for our Ruling Class…long forgotten is how many Imperial Brits became Muslim in fact if not in name…and how the British imperial system highly favored Muslims for their obedience.

        Not sure how feminists will deal with the restrictions on women driving, being out without male relatives to accompany them, sharia law regarding stoning of rape victims or “honor killings”. The move from $10,000 boobs on blatant display to the burka or hibab would be a big one, and lesbianism and/or transsexualism seem pretty antithetical to Islamic teachings.

        On the other hand, I wish feminism on Islam—if anything can break it, it would be the incessant harping of the perennial victimhood of feminism wearing down Islam merely by its constant relentless repetition.

        You miss the important part; Amazonia; dead womenwould lose the ability to keep harping. Repetition would stop after the stoning.

    E. Warren is also advocating the overthrow of our Constitution by nullification of the electoral college. I totally disagree with her. Our Founding Father’s gave us the electoral so that people in rural areas of America would have a vote, and exercise their rights as citizens. Well, if they do decide to do away with the electoral college, then might as well not even vote, because conservatives won’t have a voice…it’ll just be hollywood, antifa, and the communist areas, New York, California, Washington, Oregon, Miami, D.C, Chicago, … and then we’ll become like France, who have allowed immigrants to pour in and turn it into a third world country.

    It’s sad what’s happening to our country. Free speech is being silenced everywhere, even on Fox News.

      “The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy,” Donald Trump declared on Nov. 6, 2012.

        I respect people who learn and grow. But kudos to your masters for providing you with a 17-year-old quote. You are an obedient little meat puppet and I hope you get a pat on the head for regurgitating your script.

        Let’s say that Trump “evolved”

        Isn’t that how progressives frame it? But it is the truth. The Electoral College is a disaster for a democracy. We’re not a democracy.

        Actually Trump was technically correct, albeit ignorant of the type of government we have. The Electoral College WOULD be a disaster for a democracy. Fortunately, we’re a constitutional representative republic, a fact that I think Trump now realizes. Meanwhile, many Democrats still don’t understand the difference.

    Not all college students are ignorant, misinformed know-nothings. A question from a college co-ed to Robert Francis O’roarke in a town hall: “when are we going to get real policies from you instead of platitudes and nice stories?”

      I will bet he was a plant from another candidate … the Democrats are going to eat their own this campaign cycle.

    Caught a couple minutes of Donna Brazile on one of the Fox shows last night. A couple minutes was all I could take. I think Fox will regret the decision to hire her, just like they will regret suspending Judge Jeanine for speaking the truth about Islam.

      I think deep down, where their soul should be if they had one, Democrats are silently cheering the opioid crisis. Most of them think there are way too many people on earth anyway.

    ” Disney closes $71B deal for Fox entertainment”

    Well this is a little disheartening. The Disney industry used to be a respected and well guided company. With today’s management, they’ve fallen hard and moved decidedly left – sad. Who knows where this will leave Fox and one very few voices of sanity in todays television media.

    Gary Varvel, the resident cartoonist for the Indianapolis Star, has been on a roll lately with his jabs at the Loonie Tunes Donkeys running for President.

      LOL – that’s a accurate snap shot of how California looks

    So just read this:

    More than a third of all city residents say they can’t afford to live anywhere in the state — much less the Big Apple — and believe economic hardship will send them packing in five years or less

    Progressives govern NY, IL, and CA. Considering the turmoil and hardships evident in each of those States, do we really want them governing the country?

    This doesn’t bode well for the future.

    NEW YORK — Nearly 6 in 10 Americans believe the First Amendment is under threat, according to a new survey, yet a large portion of respondents couldn’t correctly name what the amendment protects.

    Of the 2,000 adults who took part in the poll, half thought that “liberty” is one of the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment, while nearly half (49 percent) believed “the pursuit of happiness” was included. Thankfully, only 3 percent named “life” as one of the protected freedoms.
