Racism is alive and well in the Democrat Party
Ann Coulter, like Donald Trump, doesn't take any shit from the Left.
When Donald Trump said something not exuberantly enthusiastic about Mexican immigrants, the media's response was to boycott him. One thing they didn't do was produce any facts showing he was wrong.
Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
The first thing a fact-checker would have noticed is: THE GOVERNMENT WON'T TELL US HOW MANY IMMIGRANTS ARE COMMITTING CRIMES IN AMERICA.
Wouldn't that make any person of average intelligence suspicious? Not our media. They're in on the cover-up. ...
But there are clues! Only about a quarter of California inmates are white, according to a major investigative piece in The Atlantic last year -- and that includes criminals convicted in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, when the vast majority of California's population was either black or white. ...
As for the crime of rape specifically, different groups have different criminal proclivities, but no one takes a backseat to Hispanics in terms of sex crimes.
The rate of rape in Mexico is even higher than in India, according to Professor Carlos Javier Echarri Canovas of El Colegio de Mexico. A report from the Inter-American Children's Institute explains that in Latin America, women and children are "seen as objects instead of human beings with rights and freedoms."
All peasant cultures have non-progressive views on women, but Latin America happens to have the peasant culture that's closest to the United States.
The only reason our newspapers aren't chockablock with reports of Latino sexual predators is that they are too busy broadcasting hoax news stories about non-existent gang-rapes by white men: the Duke lacrosse team (Crystal Gail Mangum), University of Virginia fraternity members (Jackie Coakley) and military contractors in Iraq (Jamie Leigh Jones)....
Who is this media cover-up helping? Not the American girls getting raped. But also not the Latina immigrants who came to the U.S., thinking they were escaping the Latin American rape culture. So as not to hurt the feelings of immigrant rapists, the media are willing to put all girls living here at risk.
No wonder the media is sputtering at Trump. He broke the embargo on unpleasant facts about what our immigration policies are doing to the country.
Trump may have an ego almost as big as Barack Hussein Obama's, but he's very good at pricking the Liberal pieties and general-purpose lies and obfuscations spread by the MSM. I like The Donald. He's not going to get the Republican nomination, but he's good for the country.
Remember when Obama promised to bring us all together?
President Barack Obama was warmly welcomed to Wisconsin by Gov. Scott Walker on Thursday, then let loose with another one of his characteristic petty partisan screeds, this one ridiculing his host....One hardly knows where to begin rebutting such hogwash, but it might as well be at the beginning with that crack about the crazy uncle. This comes from the World’s Greatest Orator, who was going to end the era of partisan division and facilitate a serious discussion about the nature’s future. It also comes from the leader of a party that features a crazy and foul-mouthed Uncle Joe and a creepy face-lifted Aunt Nancy and a perverted Cousin Anthony who keeps sending pictures of his underwear-class private parts over his cell phone and a First Mom who insists that everyone eat their vegetables while she wolfs down what the fancy chefs who’ve been flown have created and a cackling evil stepmother Hillary who seems next in line to lead our very dysfunctional national family, and we can’t share the audience’s satisfaction that everything has worked out so well since they’ve been “put in charge of stuff.”

In the end, most people want to be like most people. That's why they tell you the weekend movie grosses on the Monday morning news and put the Top Ten bestsellers at the front of Barnes & Noble - so that you can like what everybody else likes.So I find the idea that tens of millions of American "traditionalist" conservatives are going to lead their own lives immune to the broader culture somewhat unlikely. Were the same-sex marriage decision, for example, merely a judicial ruling, Barack Obama would not have lit up the White House in LGBT rainbow colors. It is after all "the people's house" and half the people aren't entirely on board with this. But he chose to see this not as a mere judge's ruling but as an ideological victory - and to celebrate it as such. And he's thereby telling you that this shift is an official one, backed by the state, and state power, and it won't stop here.Justice Anthony Kennedy, in an actual bit of jurisprudential footnoting in the midst of his Hallmark greeting card on the raptures of gay love, said that organizations would still be free to teach and promote the old form of restrictive straights-only marriage. That's awfully sporting of him, but the Boy Scouts of America provide a clue as to how it's likely to work out. In the late Nineties, the BSA said no to gay scoutmasters. I was on the floor of the Democratic Convention in Los Angeles in 2000 when they had some Eagle scouts as an honor guard - and in my section of the crowd everyone booed. And I remember thinking, "Man, these Dems are nuts. Booing boy scouts?"But the booers won. Over the next decade, gay-friendly churches (Episcopalian, Congregational, and the other post-Christian ones) booted the scouts from church halls where they'd met for decades; Disney cut them off the list of approved charities to which their employees were permitted to donate their "Ears To You" fundraising proceeds; other corporate benefactors from the US soccer league to Lockheed Martin severed their ties ...and the number of new recruits to scouting dwindled remorselessly, and so did their finances. And in the end the boy scouts' leader caved - but too late. In the blink of an eye, the boy scouts had been, as my friend Ezra Levant likes to say, "de-normalized", and banished to the fringe, and nice soccer mommies don't want l'il Jimmy playing on the extremist fringe.
If it's Racism, It's Probably Fake
DRUDGE: OBAMA BLOCKS PLAN TO FIGHT ISIS...

Bud Norman wonders where the nuclear negotiations with the apocalyptic Mullahs of Iran will end. What will Obama give them? keeping in mind that some State Department official said that we don't allow foreign inspections of our military sites, it follows that demanding to see Iran's to check on their nukes - which they say they say they are not developing and if they are they're for peaceful purposes - is obviously bad.
Our guess is that the Iranians are holding out for a deal that will require America to provide them with a sizable nuclear arsenal, along with the needed inter-continental ballistic missiles that can deliver them to Tel Aviv and Riyadh and Paris and any other locales that offend their religious sensibilities, along with the global positioning system coordinates needed to land them there, and that the final sticking point that requires yet another deadline will be whether New York City and Los Angeles and Wichita are also included in the bargain. New York City and Los Angeles are full of reliably Democratic voters, so that would be the sort of sticking point that would require a couple more deadlines to be set, but we expect that some unnamed senior U.S. official or another will find something in America’s sinful past and current policies that makes it unfair to object to the nuclear annihilation of such as reliably Republican town as Wichita.The president’s foreign policy legacy is at stake, after all, and almost any deal that’s cooked up can somehow been portrayed by the obeisant press as some sort of triumph, so surely that’s worth another two or three or four or however many deadlines are required to get there.

A report issued Thursday by the Department of State repeatedly refers to sex reassignment surgery in Iran as “gender-confirmation surgery.”Speaking at the release of the State Department’s annual human rights report, Secretary of State John Kerry said of the designation that “There is nothing sanctimonious in this,” emphasizing the need for “humility” in the face of the U.S.’ own racial inequality. The State Department did not respond to a request for clarification by The Daily Caller News Foundation.Iran has a well-documented record of coercing gay and lesbian people into having the gender reassignment surgery, that is, disrupting rather than “confirming” the gender identity of hundreds per year. Since homosexuality can be punishable by death in Iran, known homosexual men tend to accept the government-subsidized surgery to become women, and vice versa.

Robert Stacy McCain has a long and interesting essay on the culture.

The Roberts Court
One of the most common beliefs about the way that John Roberts has voted on ObamaCare is that he's doing so to preserve the Supreme Court from ferocious attacks by the Liberal elite. Commentators beleive that Roberts caved to political pressure, fearing that opposing Obama and the left would "de-legitimize the Court."
There is no question that the major organs of public opinion would have been hysterical if ObamaCare had been gutted or gay marriage had not put on the same pedestal as abortion on demand.
So Roberts chose to protect the Supreme Court from the wrath of the New York Times and NPR. The Constitution was left to fend for itself.
After conservatives took another gut punch from black-robed Obamacare cheerleader Chief Justice John Roberts, many of us were left wondering just what in the heck is wrong with this guy. After all, these Republican appointees to the Supreme Court are supposed to be on our side, right? They can’t all be David Souter.
It turns out that Ann Coulter sniffed another Souter-esque betrayal in the offing ten years ago:
Read the whole thing.After pretending to consider various women and minorities for the Supreme Court these past few weeks, President Bush decided to disappoint all the groups he had just ginned up and nominate a white male.So all we know about him for sure is that he can't dance and he probably doesn't know who Jay-Z is. Other than that, he is a blank slate. Tabula rasa. Big zippo. Nada. Oh, yeah ... We also know he's argued cases before the Supreme Court. Big deal; so has Larry Flynt's attorney.But unfortunately, other than that that, we don't know much about John Roberts. Stealth nominees have never turned out to be a pleasant surprise for conservatives. Never. Not ever.Since the announcement, court-watchers have been like the old Kremlinologists from Soviet days looking for clues as to what kind of justice Roberts will be.-- Will he let us vote?-- Does he trust democracy? Or will he make all the important decisions for us and call them "constitutional rights"?-- Does he live in a small, rough-hewn cabin in the woods of New Hampshire and avoid "womenfolk"?It means absolutely nothing that NARAL and Planned Parenthood attack him: They also attacked Sandra Day O'Connor, Anthony Kennedy and David Hackett Souter.The only way a Supreme Court nominee could win the approval of NARAL and Planned Parenthood would be to actually perform an abortion during his confirmation hearing, live, on camera, and preferably a partial-birth one.
Ann Coulter is very, very smart ... and fast with a quip which hides the fact that she's wise. We tend to support those who are attacked by Liberals, but as Ann points out, Liberals will attack anyone who has not come out - loudly and strongly - for abortion, gun control and government control of everything. This causes us to fall into the trap of supporting people with personal agendas that have nothing to do with the good of the country and protecting the right of everyone to live the life as they see fit.
On a related note, Roberts came out against the the judicial decree making gay marriage the law of the land. I suspect that this is his attempt to make up with conservatives, giving a throw-away vote to the dissent, knowing his vote was not needed to change the definition of marriage. had his vote been needed one can be sure that he would have switched positions.

No matter how low your opinion of Washington DC, it's nothing compared to Washington DC's low opinion of you.
No matter how low your opinion of Washington DC, it's nothing compared to Washington DC's low opinion of you.
If our Media Elite are wondering from their velvet bubbles why Donald Trump has captured the imagination of Republican voters, that can be summed up in a single word: fight. The Donald is fearless, and he fights like a Leftist, not a milquetoast Republican henpecked by the media into a soft-bellied Walter Mitty who dreams of but will never be president.Trump might not win all of his battles, and he may not always be right, but no one who takes a swing at him walks away unmarked, and that kind of confidence and bravado is the stuff of winners and leaders, not losers who lost the moment they surrendered to the media’s emotional blackmail and lies about “Just compromise on this and we’ll like you.”For his presidential announcement, Donald Trump did what every dim-witted Republican eventually does — earn another news cycle that puts him on defense because some singer somewhere has publicly complained about the unlicensed use of a song. The media love this story, mainly because their primary goal is to disqualify the Republican by making him look weak, ineffectual, and incompetent.The song in Trump’s case was Neil Young’s not-very-good “Rockin’ In the Free World.” It played twice during his presidential announcement rally, and almost immediately resulted in what I knew was coming the moment I heard it:“Donald Trump was not authorized to use ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’ in his presidential candidacy announcement,” a statement from Young’s manager read. “Neil Young, a Canadian citizen, is a supporter of Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America.”At this point in this age-old GOP tale, the Republican rolls over like a whipped dog and waits for the bad news cycle to end as America asks itself how the guy in the fetal position will handle ISIS.Not so with Trump.
This morning Neil Young looks like the whipped, hypocritical, petulant, ungrateful puppy….
.@Neilyoung A few months ago Neil Young came to my office looking for $$ on an audio deal & called me last week to go to his concert. Wow!
In February of 1980, everything changed for presidential-candidate Ronald Reagan when he demanded access to a microphone he paid for. Some of Reagan’s detractors claim he set-up and staged the moment, as though that somehow isn’t even more impressive.
In 1988, George H.W. Bush destroyed the “wimp” narrative hampering his presidential run by dismantling Dan Rather in front of the whole world.
What Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)43%
and Mitt Romney and almost all of the Republican Party apparently fail to understand is that you can disagree with someone and still respect them. Respect wins votes because it inspires confidence. And no one, not even those who agree with him, respects a coward who genuflects to his own enemies, especially those in the mainstream media.
In 1988, I was a Jesse Jackson Democrat (and have the campaign buttons to prove it), but after H.W.’s showdown with Rather, my entire opinion of the man changed. He might be wrong about everything, I thought, but at least he’s got some sand.
Trump has his flaws, but he’s no coward. He stands up for himself, fights back, doesn’t allow the media to live in his head, and by God that belligerence is refreshing.
Trump showed me what he was made of during the birth certificate uproar. For years, Democrats and the media were overjoyed with the lingering, fringe issue surrounding Obama’s legal citizenship. That’s why neither the media nor Obama ever wanted to put the issue to rest — even though it was a fringe issue, it was used to relentlessly club all of the GOP like a baby seal.
Trump had the stones to demand a resolution, and he got it. And as a result, a cynical and powerful weapon used against even we conservatives who were not Birthers vanished.
Trump took hell over that, he still does — simply for demanding full transparency from a politician.
Trump’s crusade was not only righteous, it benefited the GOP and the country in incalculable ways.
Hillary Clinton is neither likable nor honest — but she demands respect. That makes up for her legions of flaws and looks a lot more presidential than watching our guys fecklessly attempt to ingratiate themselves to a media that would rather see them dead than president.
The media elite are sure Trump will be bad for the Republican presidential field as a whole. Maybe so. But only if no one in that field has what it takes to take Trump on. And if this field doesn’t have the fortitude to take on Trump, they have absolutely no chance against the Clinton Machine and its media allies.
Better we learn that now.
Tell Barack Obama that vicious attacks happen in other places too ... oh, and mention this to CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NY Times, Washington Post

Man decapitated as severed head is 'covered in Arabic writing' and hung on a fence next to Islamist flag at factory in France after terrorists storm building and set off 'gas bomb' explosions
A man has been decapitated and dozens more injured at a gas product factory in France by terrorists carrying Islamist banners.The attack took place at the headquarters of the American owned Air Products, in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, near the city of Lyon, in the south east of the country.The murder is believed to have been accompanied by several explosions on the site cause by a terrorist igniting small 'gas bombs' that injured dozens of factory workers. It is believed the explosions may have intended to blow up the entire factory site but failed.The murdered man's head is understood to have been found 30 feet away from his body, hanging on the factory's fence. The dead man's head was covered in Arabic 'inscriptions' before being placed on the fence, according to local journalists at the scene.A 30-year-old man who was known to security services since at least 2008 has already been arrested at the scene, telling police officers that he is a member of the Islamic State terror group. The man is believed not to have a criminal record but was considered to have 'possibly been radicalised'.There remains a great deal of confusion over whether a second terrorist was involved and has now gone on the run, or whether a 'lone wolf' jihadi had actually killed the victim elsewhere and transported his body to site, confusing eyewitnesses.
This will be blamed on White Supremacists; just wait for it.
