Jorge Ramos: The Alleged "Journalist"


By Larry Elder , Aug 31, 2015 

One can be forgiven for thinking that it was a heckler, not a journalist, being ejected at a recent Donald Trump press conference.

Univision's Jorge Ramos, a so-called "journalist," asked Trump a "question" the following way: "You cannot deport 11 million people." 

That was at best a statement, at worst, a rant.

Ramos, called the Hispanic Walter Cronkite, is from Mexico, and came to America in his twenties on a student visa. He became an American citizen in 2008. Did he live in America illegally during that time? Does he vote in both Mexico and America?

Ramos reportedly said, "I finally recognized that I cannot be defined by one country. I am from both countries."

Tell that to President Teddy Roosevelt who said, "Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag."

By that definition, Ramos is neither a journalist nor an American.

Trump's Tax Me Too Shows He's No Limited Government, Free Market Proponent


By Editorial Aug 27, 2015 Investors

Election 2016: Republican front-runner Donald Trump was thrown a fat pitch that he could have hit out of the park by championing capitalism. Instead, he chose class warfare.

It doesn't matter how convoluted or narrow or qualified Trump's comments to Bloomberg Wednesday on "raising taxes on successful people like myself" were. What is important is that he chose to sound like Barack Obama, not Ronald Reagan.

Speaking in the lobby of his Trump Tower on New York's Fifth Avenue, Trump talked about making those successful in hedge funds pay more in taxes "because right now they are paying very little tax, and I think it's outrageous." Instead, he wants middle-class tax cuts.

FLASHBACK: Dupnik Denounces Right-Wing 'Vitriolic Rhetoric' With Left-Wing Vitriolic Rhetoric


By Larry Elder, Jan 13, 2015 Town Hall

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik took time from gathering the facts about the Tucson, Ariz., shooting to denounce the "vitriolic rhetoric" that he claims played a role in the carnage. He insisted, without any evidence, that Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' support for ObamaCare helped trigger the shooter's wrath, resulting in six dead and 13 wounded, including Rep. Giffords, who was shot point-blank in the head.

"I think it's time as a country," said Dupnik, "that we ... do a little soul-searching, because I think it's the vitriolic rhetoric that we hear day in and day out from people in the radio business and some people in the TV business, and what we see on TV and how our youngsters are being raised, that this has not become the nice United States of America that most of us grew up in, and I think it's time that we do the soul-searching."

How Smart People Deal With People They Don't Like


By David K. William, Aug 28, 2015 Life Hack

In a perfect world, each person we interact with would be nice, kind, considerate, mindful, generous, and more. They would get our jokes and we would get their’s. We would all thrive in a convivial atmosphere where no one was ever cross, upset, or maligned.

However, we don’t live in a perfect world. Some people drive us crazy, and we (admittedly) drive a few mad as well. Those we dislike are inconsiderate, rushed, malign our character, question our motives, or just don’t get our jokes at all — but expect us to laugh at all their’s.

You might wonder whether it is possible to be fair to someone who ruffles you all the time, or someone you’d rather avoid eating lunch with. You might wonder if you should learn to like every person you meet.

ICYMI: Larry Elder Is Officially A 'Hollywood Star'


By Twitchy Staff, April 27, 2015 Free Beacon

The Class of 2015 Star Honorees – the 30 people selected to receive a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame – includes TV, movie and music personalities as well as one unique selection: Larry Elder, one of just a handful of celebrities in political talk-radio to get his own star.

Of the more than 2,500 people honored with a star, hundreds are from the radio industry, though few who focus on political talk. Rush Limbaugh, who pioneered conservative talk radio in the 1980s doesn’t have a star, nor do Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck or Michael Savage, all of whom have bigger audiences than Elder.

“My first thought was, ‘I am happy and grateful for the appreciation. My second thought was, ‘I hope they didn’t confuse me with Samuel L. Jackson,'” Elder joked in an email to The Hollywood Reporter. “Maybe my induction might induce the committee to recognize the contributions of others in the field.”

People Keep Stealing This Guy's Hillary For Prison 2016 Signs


By Twitchy Staff, Aug 30, 2015 

The New York Post has a pretty funny story out today on Andy Sabin of Amagansett, NY and how his homemade “Hillary For PRISON 2016” signs keep disappearing from in front of his house:

Sabin thinks it’s Hillary supporters who are stealing his signs because his 2008 John McCain signs were stolen, too.

Signs he put up in 2008 supporting John McCain’s presidential bid were also taken, said Sabin, a Jeb Bush supporter who runs a precious-metals refining business.

“Living in a town with a lot of left-wing wackos, that’s what happens,” Sabin said.

And his Hillary sign now sits behind an electric fence in an attempt to deter thieves:

Self-Driving Cars: Uber Hires The Hackers Who Wirelessly Hijacked A Jeep




By Andy Greenberg, Aug 28, 2015 Wired

IF IT’S POSSIBLE to wirelessly attack an Internet-connected Jeep to hijack its steering and brakes, what could hackers do to a fully self-driving car? A pair of the world’s top automotive security researchers may be about to find out, with none other than Uber footing the bill.

Starting Monday, the ridesharing startup’s Advanced Technology Center will employ Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek, two hackers who have devoted the last three years to developing digital attacks on cars on trucks. Their work culminated last month in a full, over-the-internet takeover of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee, (with me behind the wheel) including the ability to turn off its transmission or engine, and even disable its brakes at low speeds. Their demonstration led Chrysler to recall 1.4 million affected vehicles, the first known automotive recall for a cybersecurity vulnerability.

Larry Elder: Conservative Blacks Long Accused Of Trying To Be White Ignored By 'Ebony Magazine'



By Twitchy Staff, Aug 04, 2015 Twitchy

Like most of Twitter, conservative radio host Larry Elder was amused by the story of Rachel Dolezal, the head of the Spokane NAACP who was “outed” by her parents as a white woman pretending to be black. What struck Elder, though, was the long-standing idea that blacks who are also conservatives aren’t “authentically” black but rather “trying to be white.”

As proof, Elder refers to an open letter he wrote to Ebony magazine in 2013. Each year, he notes, Ebony publishes a list of the 150 “Most Influential Blacks in America” — liberal blacks, that is. Continually overlooked are black conservatives like Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell and Clarence Thomas.

Virginia Shooter: Vester Flanigan's Secret That Media Won't Touch



By Jesse Lee Peterson, June 13, 2015 WND

We know some things about the coward who executed a Virginia TV news reporter and cameraman during a live interview, while capturing the images on his cell phone and then posting them to social media. We know he was black, we know he was “gay,” and we know he was a nightmare employee.

But that just scratches the surface.

Vester Flanagan II, a.k.a. “Bryce Williams,” a disgruntled former employee of WDBJ, a Roanoke, Virginia, CBS affiliate, gunned down Alison Parker and Adam Ward, and wounded another woman during an attack Wednesday.

Flanagan had been warned he’d be fired if he didn’t curb his angry outbursts. Finally, several years ago, the inevitable happened. Jeffrey Marks, general manager of WDBJ, recalled, “Eventually after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him. He did not take that well.”

No One Knows How Big The Federal Government Is--Not Even The Federal Government


By Kerry Jackson, Aug 28, 2015 Investros

When no one knows how big something is — especially when those running it don't know — that something is too big. Could we be talking about the federal government here? Well, of course we are. Is there anything bigger known to man? If the entire federal apparatus were put under one roof, it would be visible from outer space. Aliens would come from galaxies all around just to see what that mysterious bulge on Earth actually is. Once they figured it out, they would know exactly why the affairs of the U.S. are in such disarray.

In the current (2016) fiscal year, Washington will spend almost $4 trillion earned by other people. It's a figure easily found.

But how many agencies are in the federal government? Clyde Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute says that nobody knows.

Are there just 60, as one federal publication says? Or more than five times that many? Could the true number be somewhere in the middle? Or is it much higher than anyone would ever imagine?

Just How DID Carly Fiorina Do As H-P CEO?


By Russ Britt, Aug 27, 2015 Investors

Now that Carly Fiorina has gained some steam in her longshot bid for the Republican presidential nomination, more questions are surfacing about what she did — or failed to do — as CEO of Hewlett-Packard.

Fiorina left the tech giant more than a decade ago, but her controversial five-year-plus tenure leading the tech giant is her biggest claim to fame as voters try to assess her abilities.

The 60-year-old Fiorina has been relatively inactive since she was dismissed by the Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ) board in February 2005, so her time at HP gets scrutiny as a barometer of her leadership capabilities.

Obama's Labor Board Working For The Unions


By Investors, Aug 28, 2015 

Business: A National Labor Relations Board ruling made Thursday is a gift to unions and a boot on the neck of independent businesses. Welcome to another chapter in President Obama's remaking of America.

Three members of the unelected five-person NLRB acted in exactly the way that unions wanted them to. They decided, against decades of history, that Browning-Ferris Industries is a "joint employer" with a temporary staffing agency that provides workers for the Houston-based waste-management company's facility in California.

Over 200 Retired Military Brass Blast #IranDeal


By Investors, Aug 28, 2015 

A British sniper from the elite SAS saved an 8-year-old boy and his father from an Islamic State executioner by shooting the executioner in the head last month.

The SAS sniper team was reportedly tipped off to the execution in the Syrian desert by an Iraqi spy. When they arrived, they found that several Shia Muslims had already been beheaded by their captors. The IS (commonly referred to as ISIS) executioner, flanked on both sides by armed companions, was preparing to kill a young boy and his father next when the SAS team deployed its .50-caliber silenced sniper rifle.

“The ISIS thug who was about to decapitate the father was shot in the head and collapsed,” an unnamed source told the Daily Star. “Everyone just stared in confusion.”

“The sniper then dispatched the two henchmen with single shots–three kills with three bullets.”

The young boy and his father were last spotted heading to the Turkish border as the Syrian town they were evacuating celebrated the killing of the IS fighters.

Taxpayers Bear Weight Of Anchor Babies


By Stephen Gutowski, Aug 28, 2015 Investors

Borders: Hillary Clinton scolded Donald Trump for using the term "anchor babies" to describe birth tourism among Hispanic illegals, arguing that they should just be called "babies." Actually, they should be called "welfare babies."

According to a Center for Immigration Studies report, a whopping 75% of Mexican and Guatemalan legal and illegal immigrants with children are using federal welfare programs. Primarily they are exploiting Medicaid and the food-stamp and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) programs. Only immigrants from the Dominican Republic use welfare at higher rates.

The states where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare-use rates are all states with heavy concentrations of illegal Hispanic immigrants: Arizona, Colorado, California, Texas and New York.

Quentin Tarantino On Obama: "He's He Doesn't Give A S--t Attitude Has Just Been So Cool"


By Lane Brown, Aug 29, 2015 Vulture

We’re five months from the release of The Hateful Eight. How close to finishing are you?

We’ve got a little bit more than an hour finished right now. I just got back from seeing an hour of the movie cut together.

Are you happy with it?

I’m not committing suicide yet. It is what it is. We’re rushing and trying to get to the end. Then you go through it and try to make it even better. But first, you just get to the end.

Every movie I’ve ever done, there has always been some date we were trying to meet, whether it was with Reservoir Dogs, trying to meet the Sundance date, or Pulp Fiction, meeting the Cannes date. But we always pull it off. And this way you don’t have that situation where you finish the movie and then the people who paid to make it get to sit around and pick it to death.

So you don’t get notes from the studio anymore?

Want To Reduce Illegal Immigration? End The Drug War


By Roque Planas, Aug 29 2015 Huffington Post.

Several GOP presidential hopefuls have over the last few weeks offered wildly extreme and generally unrealistic proposals for deterring illegal immigration -- largely spurred by Donald Trump’s grandiose plan to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, then let a few of the “good ones” back in, all while building a giant, possibly self-branded border wall. Other ideas Republican primary candidates have pondered lately include eliminating birthright citizenship, which is guaranteed by the 14th amendment to the Constitution, because some argue that it acts as a magnet for undocumented immigrants.

While these ideas might energize the GOP’s conservative base, they wouldn’t do much to deter illegal immigration, for one simple reason: All of these propositions rest on the false assumption that most undocumented immigrants are crossing into the U.S. primarily to look for a better life and a higher-paying job.

State Laughs Off 195 Retired Brass Opposing Iran Deal




By Barbara Boland, Aug 27, 2015 Washington Examiner

State Department Spokesperson John Kirby on Wednesday laughed off a letter from 195 retired admirals and generals opposing the Iran nuclear agreement, and dodged questions about why letters of support for the deal being touted by the government should be believed when they have far fewer signatures on them than the letters opposing it.

The Obama administration had hyped a letter from three dozen retired admirals and generals in support of the deal, only to be trumped by a letter sent to Congress on Wednesday in which 195 retired admirals and generals rejected the deal. The administration also put out a letter from rabbis in favor of the deal, but opponents of the deal immediately followed suit with more than twice as many signatures against it.

Why Wasn't Carter Fired? How Were Sapp, Ray Lewis Hire? Nasty Truths Of ESPN And NFL



By Phil Mushnick, Aug 04, 2015 NY Post

The NFL treats its problems as if they’re public relations problems. They’re not. They’re reality problems, and the worst kind.

If the NFL actually wants, or even wishes, to lose its reality-based, escalating standing as a felon’s consignment stop — if commissioner Roger Goodell ever wants to be known by the right-headed as more righteous than the custodian of the Nero Fiddles League — perhaps he should apply, say, $10 million of his $40-plus-million-per-year salary to create a full-time, coast-to-coast NFL security department.

Jeb Bush 2016: Top Fundraisers Leave Campaign Amid Troubling Signs


By Alex Isenstadt and Marc Caputo
Aug 29, 2015
Politico

Three top Jeb Bush fundraisers abruptly parted ways with his presidential campaign on Friday, amid internal personality conflicts and questions about the strength of his candidacy, POLITICO has learned.
There are different versions of what transpired. The Florida-based fundraising consultants — Kris Money, Trey McCarley and Debbie Aleksander — have said that they voluntarily quit the campaign and were still working with Bush's super PAC, Right to Rise Super PAC. Others said the three, who worked under the same contract, were let go because they were no longer needed for the current phase of the campaign.

Larry Elder: #BlacksLiveMatter Movement Biggest 'Lack Of Critical Thinking Since The OJ Simpson Verdict' (VIDEO)


 By Fox and Friends Weekend, Aug 10, 2015 Fox News

A Black Lives Matter textbook could be coming to a school near you.

Aimed at white sixth grade through high school students, "Black Lives Matter (Special Reports)" "covers the shootings that touched off passionate protests, the work of activists to bring about a more just legal system and tensions in the U.S. society that these events have brought to light," according to Ardo Publishing.

Authors Duchess Harris and Sue Bradford Edwards say the conversation needs to happen with young students, but critics say it goes too far.

Larry Elder said on "Fox and Friends Weekend" that this book is indoctrinating children to believe that that black people are victims and white people should feel guilty about it. He explained that doesn't get to the root of the problem.

He said if the Black Lives Matter movement is really concerned about saving the lives of African Americans, they should focus on black-on-black crime, which is the number one cause of preventable death among young black males.

Virginia Shooter: Vester Lee Flanagan Thought Words Like 'Field' and 'Swinging' Were Racist


By Matt Vespa , Aug 28, 2015 Town Hall

Vester Lee Flanagan (aka Bryce Williams) had contacted ABC News over the past few weeks about a story, but never gave any details. On August 26, the day he ambushed and murdered WDBJ7’s Alison Parker and Alex Ward, he faxed what appears to be a manifesto/suicide note to the organization, citing, among other things, that the Charleston church shooting sent him “over the top.” It’s the ramblings of an unhinged person. Flanagan’s work history has mostly been dotted with him filing complaints about discrimination at work, of which there is no evidence, and a reputation of being difficult among his co-workers.

If Trump's Campaign Collapses, It'll Be For One Of These 6 Reasons


By John Hawkins , Aug 10, 2015 Twon Hall

I don’t know whom I will end up supporting next year, but I do like Donald Trump.

I like his books. I like his personality. I appreciate all of the things he's done right in this campaign.

If you applied the old "Who would you like to have a beer with?” test that has probably determined far more elections than most Americans want to admit, Trump would beat everyone in the field combined twice over. In a time when the Republican Party has become timid, weak and utterly corrupt, Trump is bold, strong and he has enough money that he can't be bought off. Also, unlike most other Republican politicians, he doesn't turn into a pool of whimpering jello every time someone claims to be offended. His immigration plan? It may be the single best thing a Republican politician has come out with in the last decade. Also, in a time when most of the Republican Party isn't willing to fight anyone except for its own supporters and won't fight for anything except what its wealthy donors want, Trump has shown a willingness to take on the Left and win.

'Open Warfare' On Cops Condemned By Texas Official After Deputy Executed


By Chuck Ross, Aug 10, 2015 Free Beacon

Law enforcement officials in Harris County, Texas strongly condemned the “very dangerous national rhetoric” they believe may have contributed to the ambush and execution of sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth at a gas station Friday night.

“It is time for the silent majority in this country to support law enforcement,” Harris County district attorney Devon Anderson said at a press conference Saturday afternoon.

At around 8:30 p.m. a gunman approached the 47-year-old Goforth from behind as he was pumping gas. The suspect shot the 10-year veteran, who was in full uniform and on duty at the time, in the back of the head and proceeded to shoot him while he was on the ground.

“Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” activists with the St. Paul, Minn. branch of Black Lives Matter chanted while marching behind a group of police officers down a highway just south of the state fair grounds.
