Who knew St. Patrick was Jewish? Tuesday, March 17 was a great day for the Irish, a greater day for Israelis; a bad day for the putz in the White House and for the Lying Swine; a very bad day for the mullahs in Tehran.

Zero plans to punish Israel for voting for the guy he doesn't like. "Every single Obama failure... is followed by a Prolonged Snit," says Ace.

That the White House was "doing its damndest to vilify him on the Sunday talk shows" indicates the carpet bombing of Sen. Tom Cotton, R-AR has failed, said William Bigelow of Breitbart News.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Monday the administration's request to lift the injunction issued by District Judge Andrew Hanen barring implementation of Zero's executive orders providing amnesty for illegal aliens. Hanen is peeved about having been lied to; may impose sanctions on the Justice Department.

The EPA wants to regulate backyard barbecues; monitor how long hotel guests spend in the shower. It's "burning the Constitution," said liberal Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe.

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers tried to ambush Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex, Tuesday on "climate change." It did not go as planned.

The Obama administration has shut down walk-in tax preparation centers where the IRS provided, for free, assistance in filling out their income tax forms to the poor and elderly, diverted the money to left wing nonprofits with ties to the administration.

CRUISING THE INSIDER PASSAGE Print E-mail

One of our planet's most enjoyable voyages is sailing through Alaska's Inside Passage on a luxury cruiseship.  Even better, however, would be converting it into an Insider Passage, where in addition to the stupendous scenery and sumptuous onboard living, you gain a financial insider's knowledge on how to best protect your assets from government pickpockets.

This would be my friend Brian Jensen, CPA and president of Legacy Global Financial Group.  Brian is a featured speaker at The Platinum Vegas Rendezvous April 24-26 - and the extreme practical value of his advice on asset protection, advanced estate planning, and wealth transfer (passing your assets on to your family and loved ones) is a persuasive reason for you to be in Vegas with us.

Yet the Rendezvous lasts but a weekend.  An entire week with Brian would be vastly more valuable.  He's the only guy I know who has an optimistic positive attitude towards taxes - that's because he knows all the legal loopholes.  How much would it mean to you if you knew them too?

THE CHINESE MARATHON Print E-mail

Sanya, Hainan Island, South China Sea.  This is China's Florida, where Chinese Snowbirds escape from freezing their tuches off suffering Beijing's winter.  I am at Howard Johnson's Sanya Resort eating a cheeseburger and listening to a local rock band playing Roy Orbison's Pretty Woman, singing the lyrics in English.  

The place is gigantic with 1,000 rooms, and packed with Chinese - I am the only Westerner here.  The band now launches into an enthusiastic Beatles' Obla-dee-obla-dah, which brings back a flood of memories when I first heard it, dancing with my Hawaiian girlfriend Vonnie at a Honolulu night club in 1969.

The Red Guards were rampaging through China back then, egged on by Mao, while millions of Chinese were starving to death.  The scene before me now would have been considered a madman's hallucination in 1969. 

Then Mao finally died in 1976, and his successor, Deng Xiao Ping created a "birdcage economy" as the way for China to grow into an economic superpower yet retain a Communist Party monopoly of power.

The Chinese people were allowed to be songbang, unleashed and free to fly around in the cage to make money - but never allowed to escape from the Party's cage itself.  They accepted the bargain offered them - prosperity in exchange for loyalty - and the result was the most massive increase in national wealth in the shortest time in human history.

Today, the bargain between the Chicoms and the Chinese people - greater economic freedom for little or no political freedom - is breaking down.  The Party needs a new rationale for its monopoly of political power - and has found it in that most lethal of tyrant excuses, jingoistic nationalism and demonization of a foreign devil.

Guess who that is.

CONSERVATIVE PUNDITS FORM CIRCULAR FIRING SQUAD Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 20 March 2015

According to Gallup’s annual poll, 38 percent of Americans are conservative, just 24 percent say they’re liberal. Yet liberals win elections far more often. The teapot tempest that erupted this week over Liz Mair illustrates one of the reasons why.

In the likely event you’ve never heard of Liz, she’s an evidently highly regarded Republican political consultant with expertise in social media.

Ms. Mair is also a woman of strong opinions, whose views on amnesty for illegal aliens, abortion and gay marriage many conservatives find distressing.

Wisconsin Gov. Walker exposed himself as a secret squish by hiring Liz Mair, said, among others, Matt Boyle of Breitbart News and columnist Michelle Malkin.

By accepting her resignation, Gov. Walker indicated he’s easy to push around, said, among others, Jonah Goldberg of National Review, Erick Erickson of Red State, and Michael van der Galien of PJ Media.

A REPUBLICAN WE CAN COTTON TO Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 19 March 2015

Dr. George Logan of Germantown, Pa. took it upon himself to negotiate an end to our undeclared war with France, which peeved President John Adams.

So in January, 1799, Congress passed the Logan Act, which forbids a citizen, "without the authority of the United States," to "engage in correspondence or intercourse" with a foreign government "in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States."

There was one indictment under the Logan Act - in 1803 -- but no prosecutions.

Unhinged Democrats resurrected the Logan Act from the musty pages of history after Sen. Tom Cotton, R-AR, wrote an "open" letter to the mullahs in Tehran (full text in the link) to remind them that if the Senate doesn't ratify it, any deal they make with President Obama will end when his term does.

Sen. Cotton wrote it to shine a light on President Obama's willingness to permit Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, which at least 77 percent of Americans oppose, according to a Gallup poll in February.

Mission accomplished - in large part because of the hysterical, hypocritical overreaction from Democrats.

RULES ARE NOT LAWS: WHAT 2016 SHOULD BE ABOUT Print E-mail
Written by Bruce Walker   
Thursday, 19 March 2015

The power to make laws rests wholly in Congress - at least that is what the Constitution says.  Yet who makes the "laws" in our federal system today? 

Vast amounts of legislative power have been "delegated" to independent federal regulatory agencies like the Federal Communications Commission or to the president or his cabinet secretaries. 

The sheer volume of these rules is mind-numbing.  Consider that in 2014, the year that just ended, 75,000 pages of new regulations were adopted by the Executive Branch, either by the Obama administration directly or through independent regulatory agencies. 

This is in addition to the myriad executive orders the president gives to his various departments regarding how to administrate federal laws.

The imagined need for these rules is that congressional legislation cannot anticipate every situation or change that requires new regulations.  That is true, of course, only if we accept the underlying premise that the federal government ought to be directly involved in almost everything we do. 

Abolishing the completely illegal and unconsitutional scam of legislative delegation to unelected bureaucracies should be a major GOP campaign theme in 2016.

HOW TO GET REGIME CHANGE IN IRAN Print E-mail
Written by Michael Ledeen   
Wednesday, 18 March 2015

There's a profound disgruntlement in the Force over the impending Iran deal, ranging from the Israelis to the Saudis, and from the French to the Gulfies.  It isn't just words, apparently - there are rumors suggesting that some of the disgruntled Arabs are arranging to get their own nukes, just as Netanyahu foresaw (or perhaps even knew), and as Kissinger warned (and perhaps knew).

The powers-that-be have bought into the false option of either making a deal or going to a war footing. It was once known as the Sarkozy Option:  Iran with the bomb, or bomb Iran.

It need not be, and everybody knows it.  Deep in the subtexts, and every now and then in public, we hear about the White House's not-so-secret dream that the Iranian regime will either moderate or fall.  It's worth recalling that Gorbachev managed both.  First he reformed, via glasnost and perestroika, and then he fell.  There was never a fatal choice between a deal and war.

Indeed, regime change is a constant leitmotif of the world today, having reshaped Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia, threatened Syria and Venezuela, aimed at Jordan, and raged across Africa.  It can be done in Iran and here's why.

MORE FOOD FROM LESS LAND Print E-mail
Written by Matt Ridley   
Tuesday, 17 March 2015

If something drops out of the news, it usually means it is going well. 

Mad cow disease killed nobody last year. Mozambique and Angola are growing their economies at a furious lick. There were only two localized famines last year - in South Sudan and the Central African Republic - both caused by conflict, rather than drought or population pressure.

That's because the feeding of the world is going so well it's not news.

New figures from the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization show that the world's cereal harvest, which provides more than half of the calories that humans eat, broke a new record last year at 2.54 billion tons - an astonishing 20 per cent higher than ten years ago.

Thanks to better techniques and seeds, the world's farmers (of which I declare I am one, in a mostly hands-off way) have provided a growing population with more food per head, year after year, largely without cultivating extra land or using extra water or chemicals.

Corn, rice and wheat - the big three cereals - each broke records in 2014. So why do we hear frequent cries that the world soon will be or is already struggling to feed itself?

RONALD REAGAN'S FAVORITE IRISH JOKE Print E-mail

Tuesday, 17 March 2015

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  To celebrate - well, before we all go off to our favorite Irish pub and really celebrate - we at To The Point thought we'd share with you Ronald Reagan's favorite Irish joke.

An Irishman was walking along a beach in County Cork one day and noticed an encrusted bottle washed up on the sand.  Wondering what might be inside he broke it off at the neck and out popped an Irish Genie.

"Oh, me man, I hah been in tha bottle for a hundred years, and you be settin' me free!" he exclaimed.  "For that, I'll be givin' you two wishes!"

"Two wishes?  Anything I want?" the man asked incredulously.

"Anythin' - just name it," the genie replied.

"Well, what I'll be wantin'," said the man, "is...."

George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to Hell.

While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The Devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russia  and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished, the Devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

Next, Queen Elizabeth calls  England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished, the Devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

Finally, George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished, the Devil informs him that the cost is $5.00. When Putin hears this, he goes ballistic and asks the Devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply.
 
The Devil smiles and replies...

HALF-FULL REPORT 03/13/15 Print E-mail

Friday, 13 March 2015

It's Friday the 13th, which is bad luck for somebody. But not for us. Hillary dug the hole she's in deeper this week. Big labor suffered a big blow in Wisconsin. With trust in the broadcast networks at 10, 10, and 8 percent, it isn't only us who think the Lying Swine are Lying Swine.

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, has written a letter, cosigned by 46 Republican senators, to the mullahs in Iran reminding them that if the Senate doesn't approve it, any deal they make with Zero won't survive his presidency.  Democrats have responded with a hysterical, hypocritical, often hilarious hissy fit.

Two police officers in Ferguson, Mo were shot shortly after midnight Thursday morning (3/12) during what the Lying Swine described as "mostly peaceful" protests. The shooting was prompted by what Milwaukee County (Wis) Sheriff David Clarke, a Democrat who is black, called a "witch hunt" by the Justice Department.

Wisconsin became the 25th right to work state Monday, which made National Review very happy, Barack Obama very unhappy. Perhaps most significant is how pathetic were the union/leftist protests this time. Could New Mexico be 26th?

Venezuela is the most recent proof of how right William F. Buckley Jr. was when he said: "If the Communists took over the Sahara desert ...there would be a shortage of sand."

Don't let the leftist canard about a "runaway" convention keep you from supporting a Convention of the States. 

Hillary Clinton held a news conference Tuesday (3/10) to address scandals that erupted 22 days before. Democrats who were nervous before her presser are panicking now, said the Washington Post.

OBAMA'S PLAN FOR A FASCIST AMERICA Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Friday, 13 March 2015

Ha Long Bay, Northern Vietnam.  This place is so spectacularly beautiful there's no wonder why it's a World Heritage Site. 

Americans are welcome now in Vietnam, where so many people speak English because it's required to learn it in school as a second language.  Vietnamese have embraced capitalism with a vengeance, even while they are ruled by the same Commie Party we fought in the 60s, the Hammer & Sickle flies everywhere and Ho Chi Minh is pictured on their currency.

The days of America being Hanoi's enemy are long gone.  China is the enemy today as it has been for over two thousand years of Vietnamese history, against which Hanoi needs America as an ally.  The tides of history ebb and flow.  America's greatest enemy today is not external but within.

A far more mortal danger to our country than Putin Russia, Chicom China, or Reconquista Mexico is a Hate America White House with the clear goal of creating a Fascist America. 

Government control of all of our major institutions and industries is taking place right before our eyes in broad daylight.  If we have any chance of reversing it, we must begin by identifying exactly what is going on.  The first step is to call what is going on by its accurate name:  fascism.

The Left loves to use the term as a pejorative sneer for anything lefties don't like.  But as an economic theory it has a specific meaning. 

Socialism is government ownership of businesses and industries, with everyone in the economy - workers, managers, executives - being an employee of the State.  In Castro's Cuba until recently, even shoeshine boys had to belong to a state cooperative.

Fascism, by contrast and far more dishonestly, is government control of ostensibly private business and industry, the owners and executives of which can do nothing without bureaucratic regulatory approval.  This is the economy Zero is determined to achieve.  He is doing so with astonishing rapidity - and with Chicago gangsterism and corrupt thuggishness, hallmarks of any fascist regime.

So rapid and thuggishly thorough it leaves the Marxist agenda of the Frankfurt School's "march through the institutions" - both economic and cultural - of the 20th century in the dust.  It is a 21st century blitzkrieg of fascism.  Let's itemize it.

The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Foundation accepted huge contributions from foreign governments – including dictatorships hostile to America – while Hillary was secretary of state, the Wall Street Journal reported Feb. 17.

Ms. Clinton conducted all of her official business on a private email server installed in her home in Chappaqua, New York, the New York Times reported March 2.

Ms. Clinton seemed irritated to have to answer any questions about her conduct, cut them off after about 20 minutes. But in those 20 minutes, she dug the hole she was in deeper.

THE POLITICAL ASSAULT ON GLOBAL WARMING SKEPTICS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Richard Lindzen   
Wednesday, 11 March 2015

Research in recent years has encouraged those of us who question the popular alarm over allegedly man-made global warming.

Actually, the move from "global warming" to "climate change" indicated the silliness of this issue. The climate has been changing since the Earth was formed. This normal course is now taken to be evidence of doom.

Individuals and organizations highly vested in disaster scenarios have relentlessly attacked scientists and others who do not share their beliefs. The attacks have taken a threatening turn.

World leaders are embarking on costly policies that have no capacity to replace fossil fuels but enrich crony capitalists at public expense, increasing costs for all, and restricting access to energy to the world's poorest populations that still lack access to electricity's immense benefits.

Billions of dollars have been poured into studies supporting climate alarm, and trillions of dollars have been involved in overthrowing the energy economy. So it is unsurprising that great efforts have been made to ramp up hysteria, even as the case for climate alarm is disintegrating.

Which is why skeptics on climate alarmism are being politically targeted, myself among them.

CALL IT CLIMATE FASCISM Print E-mail
Written by James Delingpole   
Wednesday, 11 March 2015

The latest Warmist campaign is that scientists and journalists who mislead the public about ‘global warming' should be banned from television.

So says the producer of a highly tendentious and misleading new eco-propaganda movie about global warming, apparently blissfully unaware of the irony of his position.

Robert Kenner is the producer of Merchants of Doubt, a documentary which seeks to claim that climate skepticism is nothing but a fossil-fuel-funded conspiracy coordinated by the same kind of cackling evil-doers who tried to persuade you that smoking doesn't cause cancer.

Like the Obama administration, the movie takes for granted the notion that catastrophic man-made climate change is real, that all the scientists promoting the theory are reliable, honest and principled, and that the only possible reason anyone might have for claiming otherwise is that they are "merchants of doubt" - i.e., corrupt disinformers who deliberately and cynically seek to hide the truth about global warming from the public because they have been paid to do so by sinister corporate interests.

Now Kenner has written a public letter to one of his fellow celebrity alarmists, scientist-turned-filmmaker Randy Olson, to help promote his crappy film raise awareness in the media of the very serious issue of Big Oil funded denialism.

The letter says:
