NO SURPRISE THAT OBAMA BELONGS TO THE MULTI-CULTI CULT Print E-mail
Written by Michael Ledeen   
Thursday, 12 February 2015

There was nothing particularly new about President Obama's remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast the other day.  Not that it's unimportant.  It's extremely important. 

But the unfortunate notion that all religions, and indeed all cultures, are morally equivalent has been with us a long time, and it's very fashionable. 

It's now the conventional liberal wisdom, as a matter of fact.  Even Pope Francis is a member of the liberals' Multi-Culti Cult.

I'm not going to dwell on the silly anachronisms and false parallels in the speech - Governor Jindal did it best, I think, when he told the president to relax about medieval Catholicism and focus his concerns on contemporary Islamism - but rather on what we're supposed to do when we encounter religious views that offend us, or seem threatening to us.  

Obama basically said we should just shut up. His remarks weren't made in a theoretical debate.  They come shortly after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, and other barbaric acts in the name of radical Islam.  They are part of the doctrine of multiculturalism or "multi-culti," which started as "culturalism," early in the last century.

EXPOSING WHO CAUSED THE GREAT RECESSION HAS THE PERPS HOPPING MAD Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Wednesday, 11 February 2015

What do you think was the primary cause of the Great Recession -- too little government regulation ,or dictates by the government to banks and other mortgage lenders, requiring them to lend to the unqualified?

Peter J. Wallison, former general counsel of the U.S. Treasury Department and White House counsel to President Reagan, who was also a member of the congressionally authorized Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, has just published a book, "Hidden in Plain Sight," in which he clearly documents what caused the financial crisis and why it is likely to happen again.

For this act of detailed scholarship and truth-telling, he has come under fierce attack by many of those who were, in part, responsible for the crisis.  Mr. Wallison is a problem for the political class, much like the boy who said the emperor had no clothes. He cannot be dismissed as a know-nothing lightweight.

So his character must be impugned since the facts are on his side.  The Great Recession was a crime, and its perps do not like being exposed.

HALF-FULL REPORT 02/06/15 Print E-mail

We begin with an act of political genius, the greatest campaign ad of modern times: 

 
Israel is impossibly lucky to have Bibi leading their country.  That's why Zero hates him, because - in addition to Bibi being everything he is not, a man of integrity, honor, courage and patriotism - Zero hates Israel.

He hates Israel not because he's a Moslem - Zero's no more a Moslem than he is a Christian, his religion is Himself as a pathological narcissist.  He hates Israel because Israel is an ally of America and her enemies are America's...

Zero's Prayer Breakfast speech yesterday was beyond digusting.  Bobby Jindal's response skewered him.

Jindal is saying interesting things these days.  By contrast, Jeb Bush wins the Idiot of the Week award hands down...

We have a true champion of the 10th Amendment as our Hero of the Week -- and he's a judge.

WHY IS OBAMA WAGING WAR ON OUR ALLIES AND NOT OUR ENEMIES? Print E-mail

The Obama Administration's actions towards Israel become more intolerable each day, carrying with their insults deeply damaging national security implications for our country.


Just last week, Americans opened the newspapers to discover that the Obama campaign team has deployed operatives, including 2012 Field Director Jeremy Bird, to Tel Aviv to try to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu through an organization that receives taxpayer grants from the U.S. Department of State.

All of this is even more perilous given the imminent threat posed by Iran's active effort to acquire nuclear weapons capability.

For as things stand now, if the nuclear negotiations continue on the path they are on, they could prove to be the worst negotiations in our nation's history.

YOU LIE ABOUT THE ECONOMY, MR. PRESIDENT Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 06 February 2015

From 1820 through 2000, America's real (inflation adjusted) gross domestic product grew at an average annual rate of 3.6 percent. Last year was the 9th consecutive year in which the economy grew less than 3 percent.

Real GDP has grown 13.6 percent since the recovery officially began in June, 2009. The average rate of growth at this point in the recoveries from the four recessions since 1975 was 21.9 percent.

If it weren't for gains made by the well off, there wouldn't be a "recovery." Five years after it began (by June 2014), the top 1 percent of earners (more than $366,623 a year) had garnered 81 percent of its fruits. The incomes of the top 1 tenth of 1 percent (about $8 million a year) grew 39 percent.

The incomes of the bottom 90 percent of earners declined, according to a study by University of California-Berkeley economist Emmanuel Saez. Real median household income was $54,417 in December, 5.1 percent lower than in January, 2008 ($57,317).

The plain fact is that it is Mr. Obama's rules, regulations, and policies that are stifling our economy and job growth.  That's why, of course, he's lying about it.

WINNING IN A WALKER Print E-mail

Wednesday, 04 February 2015

The battle for the Republican nomination for president effectively began at the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines Jan. 26-27.

Twelve prospective candidates spoke at the Freedom Summit, a testament to the power Iowa wields by being the first to select delegates.

I'm appalled by the wildly disproportionate influence the Iowa caucuses have, since only about 20 percent of those eligible attend them. But I don't mind so much this cycle, because Iowa figures to boost the guy I think is best able to unite the GOP; appeal to swing voters, do the best job as president.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was the most impressive at the Freedom Summit, said pundits left and right. Iowans evidently agree. At 15 percent, he was the top first choice of respondents in a Des Moines Register poll last week, tied with neurosurgeon Ben Carson for top 2nd choice (10 percent). He was a runaway winner in an online poll conducted for the Drudge Report this week.

Most prospective GOP candidates really are running 1) for vice president; 2) to send a message; 3) to boost their lecture fees and/or massage their egos.

Among those running for vice president (whether they know it or not) are...

THE IDIOCY OF ABASEMENT TO THE UMBRAGE POLICE Print E-mail
Written by James Delingpole   
Wednesday, 04 February 2015

The celebrity actor Benedict Cumberbatch has said he is "a complete fool," an "idiot," "thoughtless" and that he is "devastated" for having inadvertently used the term "colored" to describe black people on a US talk show.

It's depressing enough that he felt the obligation to apologize. But what's worse is that he felt the need to do with such groveling self-abasement.

Yes, we all know why he did it. It's Oscar nomination season coming up, Cumberbatch is a possible contender for his portrayal of fashionably autistic, gay code-breaker Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, and Hollywood is notoriously PC and squeamish about issues to do with race.

But if anyone who owes anyone an apology, here, it's not poor put-upon Cumberbatch but the noisome professional offense-takers who by seeking to make political mileage out of such achingly trivial issues are creating a climate of linguistic fear in which good people suffer.

This, though, unfortunately, is how the liberal-left rolls.  For as my friend Alex Wickham tells me, "Liberals are the new Puritans who want to control your life."  We need an End to the New Puritanism movement.

PUTIN'S BRIBES TO ENVIRONMENTALISTS EXPOSED Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Tuesday, 03 February 2015

Which country has the biggest interest in stopping the expansion of the oil and gas industry in Europe and North America? Answer: the Russian Federation is highly dependent -- to the tune of several hundred billion dollars -- on the export of these commodities, particularly to Europe.

It is rational, then, for the Russians to spend upward of a few hundred million dollars to influence politicians to stop gas and oil projects in those countries, with the goal of limiting supply, and thus protecting the Russian revenue stream.

Researchers at the Environmental Policy Alliance, however, have just produced a very solid, well-documented report, which shows how tens of millions of dollars from Russian interests apparently flowed from a dark company in Bermuda through opaque environmental bundlers, such as the Sea Change Foundation, into major environmental lobbying organizations, including the Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the League of Conservation Voters.

There have been a number of press stories during the past week on Russian support of American environmental groups, including a very detailed description of the money flows, by Lachlan Markay of the Washington Free Beacon.  In truth, these reports just scratch the surface of the Kremlin bribery operation paying off not just enviro groups but White House people as well.

CANADA'S ILLEGAL LIBERAL INVASION Print E-mail

Friday, 06 February 2015

As recently reported in The Manitoba Herald:

Winnipeg. The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration. 

Republicans winning the US Senate last November, and now taking office is prompting an exodus among left-leaning citizens who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray, and live according to the Constitution.

Canadian border farmers say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, global warming activists, and "green" energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

"I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn," said Southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota.  "The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry.  He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn't have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay."

Are you ready for Vegas?  Yes - the TTP Vegas Rendezvous is official!  It's at the Platinum Boutique Hotel & Spa, just off the Strip and its most famous intersection of Caesar's, Bellagio, Paris, and the Flamingo.

The dates are Friday April 24th to Sunday April 26.  We haven't been able to hold a Rendezvous since 2011 as I've been traveling so much.  And with so many requests - "Come on, Jack, when's another Rendezvous??" - it was clear we better have one this spring. 

So give Miko a call at 202-656-3008 or email him at This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it to sign up now.  I'll see you in Vegas!...

Well, here's a first.  Never before has the HFR found cause to praise Mrs. Zero, but we're happy to so this week....

Dissolve the intelligence agency that has all the dirt on you, in order to deflect attention away from you for the murder of the investigator exposing you?  Good luck, murderess.  Argentina's Curse of Cristina may with any luck soon be over...

Speaking of murderers.  Yesterday (1/30), Texas proceeded with the execution of Robert Ladd after the Supreme Court rejected ACLU arguments that his IQ was too low at 67. Here's why IQ is irrelevant...

Our HFR Health & Fitness feature this week focuses on news stories like this on CBS on Tuesday (1/27): Common Allergy Meds May Increase Odds of Dementia.  Here's how to avoid that and start thinking sharp and clear at any age...

IT'S GOTTA BE A GUV Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 29 January 2015

Last Saturday (1/24) in Des Moines, 23 of the most prominent conservatives in the country spoke at the Iowa Freedom Summit, organized by Congressman Steve King (R-IA) and Citizens United.

Was the next President of the United States among them?  Let's hope so - albeit the no-shows were Jindal, Paul, Rubio, and Jitt Rombush (or is it Meb Bushney?).  It's vastly too early to predict who that will be, but we can start winnowing the field.

Let's first eliminate those who are ridiculously tiresome old news.  That would be Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Donald Trump.  Go away and goodnight.

Next, there are those for whom the spotlight has moved on... Then there are the long-shot dark horse non-politicians.  We move on to Senators who should stay where they are, and stop believing - as almost all Senators do, Dem or Pub - that they would be God's gift to the presidency.

With all that said, we come to the presidential timber bottom line:  It's gotta be a guv.  A governor who's a proven success at applying conservative principles in his (or her) state.  Who could that be?

THE SNOW JOB OF CLIMATE CHANGE Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 30 January 2015

As I was shoveling great gobs of it from my driveway this week, I remembered that Porter Fox, writing in the New York Times last February, predicted "the end of snow."

Last winter was the coldest on record for much of the country. At least a dozen cities reported more than twice as much snowfall as normal, AccuWeather said.

The record for "major impact" snowstorms in a decade on the East Coast, set in the 1960s, was 10. We've already had 14 such storms in this decade, noted meteorologist Joe D'Aleo.  Note that this decade is only half over.

One of those 14 was last weekend, mere days after EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said "climate change" could put an end to winter sports.  Welcome to Warmism, the greatest snow job in history.

STALIN, MOHAMMED, AND OBAMA Print E-mail

Wednesday, 28 January 2015

Pundits agonize over President Obama's resistance to calling Islamist terror "Islamist terror." How can he not see the obvious? How can he ignore the overwhelming and ever-increasing evidence?

How can he insist that his subordinates continue their buffoonish insistence that Islamist terror has nothing to do with Islam and that they-secularized Christians and non-observant Jews-know Islam's character better than Moslems themselves?

It's easy. President Obama and his commissars fit the longstanding pattern of behavior (insistence, denial, castigation) that the hard left has embraced for generations.  Just as Obama's ideological predecessors could never criticize Stalin, so their successors today can never cricize Mohammed.

A PRESIDENT WHO LIVES IN FANTASY LAND Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015

If you were a librarian, would you put President Obama's recently delivered State of the Union address in the fiction or nonfiction section?

All presidents puff their accomplishments and gloss over their failures, but no previous president has been so blatant in just making up "facts" and numbers that are so disconnected from reality.

The Islamic State (which is also called ISIS or ISIL) is gaining territory, yet the president said we are "stopping ISIL's advance."

He said, "We're upholding the principle that bigger nations can't bully the small, by opposing Russian aggression." In the year since his last State of Union address, Russia has grabbed Crimea, taken control of part of Eastern Ukraine, and continues to take more territory in Ukraine. If this is success, what would failure look like?

The president's description of the economy was also a trip through Fantasy Land.
