On Monday, President Obama spoke about his new strategy to take on the terrorist entity Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In doing so, he explained that the battle against that terrorist group -- a group he had once termed "JV" -- would amount to a "generational struggle." Why would defeating a ragtag army of primitives take generations? Because, Obama explained, "This is not simply a military effort. Ideologies are not defeated by guns. They're defeated with better ideas." To cap off this airsickness bag of gobbledygook, Obama then concluded, "We will never be at war with Islam."
Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once stated, The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. The fallacy of progressive socialists is that they believe such to not be true.
CNN's Don Lemon talks to Republican candidate for president Donald Trump about his controversial remarks regarding illegal immigrants. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said at his presidential announcement in June. "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 with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." Trump tells CNN's Lemon all he's doing is "telling the truth." "Somebody is doing the raping, Don, I mean, you know," Trump said. "Somebody's doing it." "Who is doing the raping?" Trump asked. DONALD TRUMP, GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Well, if you look at the statistics of people, I didn't say Mexicans -- I said the illegal immigrants. If you look at the statistics on rape, on crime, on everything, coming in illegally into this country, they're mind-boggling. If you go to Fusion, you will see a story about 80% of the women coming in, you have to take a look at these stories. And you know who owns Fusion? Univision. It was in The Huffington Post. I said, let me get some of these articles because I've heard some horrible things. I do a lot of talking with people on the border patrol. They're incredible people. They help our country. DON LEMON: But I want some clarification -- TRUMP: No, but Don, all you have to do is go to Fusion and pick up the stories on rape and it is unbelievable when you look at what is going on. So all I am doing is telling the truth. LEMON: I've read The Washington post, I read the Fusion, I read The Huffington Post. And that's about women being raped, it's not about criminals coming across the border entering the country. TRUMP: Somebody is doing the raping, Don, I mean, you know -- I mean, somebody's doing it. You think it's women being raped, well who is doing the raping? Who is doing the raping? I mean how can you say such a thing.

In his latest column hosted at Townhall, author Thomas Sowell railed against the oft-used cliche of "a legacy of slavery" meant to show how America has treated its black citizens throughout history by reminding that it is in fact the liberal policies of the 1960s that have created such social problems in those communities.

A computer programming maxim is “Garbage in - garbage out.” (C)omputers, since they operate by logical processes, will unquestioningly process unintended, even nonsensical, input data ("garbage in") and produce undesired, often nonsensical, output ("garbage out”). No one or nothing produces more garbage than government. And their trash has nowhere to go except all over the private sector - us. The federal government alone spends almost | Read More
District of Columbia residents and tourists weighed in on the controversy surrounding the Confederate flag, some saying the nation should go as far as renaming Washington, D.C.CNN anchor Don Lemon recently floated the idea of re-thinking the Jefferson Memorial, dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, since he was a slave owner.“There may come a day when we want to re-think Jefferson, I don’t know if we should do that, but when we get to that point, I’ll be happy to partake in that particular discussion,” Lemon said.“It should come down,” one D.C. resident told PJ Media, referencing the Jefferson Memorial in Washington.“If we do that, though, George Washington owned slaves. Should we rename Washington, D.C.?” he was asked.“You have to draw the line at some point, I guess, maybe take a poll across the country and see what people think about it and if they want to rename the city, do it,” he said. “I would support changing the American flag as well. America is based on a lot of mass killings and slavery and the history is just – look at the Germans, they own up to the Holocaust, nobody is proud of their history. Americans, at least, you should not be proud of any mass killing. You should not be proud of anything wrong that’s been done in the past or any symbols that represent that and that’s all.”Another man suggested renaming Washington “Black City” or “Mixed City.”“We are all human and we are all the same, no more slavery,” he said. “As a black person, yes, they should rename it… anything that relates to slavery, take it off. It’s only fair.”Some residents disagreed with taking down the Jefferson Memorial or renaming Washington.“That’s not necessary – that’s all a part of history,” one man said.D.C. tourists and residents were also asked if they agreed with a bill recently introduced by Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, which would remove the Confederate flag from license plates across the U.S. if states want their full amount of federal transportation dollars. One tourist told PJ Media the bill was not necessary.“No, I think it’s a part of history. It may not be pretty but it’s a part of history,” she said.Others agreed with the bill.“I feel like it’s a symbol of hate, just like the swastika, and I think that it should probably go. People are so unhappy and offended by it, so let’s just get rid of it,” a resident said.

The act of sex is not illegal. But if two members of the American Law Institute have their way, it will be — unless you follow their rules. Law professors Stephen J. Schulhofer and Erin Murphy are trying to update the criminal code when it comes to sex offenses, believing current definitions of rape and sexual assault are antiquated. The focus of their draft is on what constitutes consent. It adopts the yes means yes, or affirmative consent model that was passed in California last year. The California law applies only to college campuses, however. Schulhofer and Murphy aim to take that definition of consent — which says that before every escalation of a sexual encounter, clear and convincing consent must be given — to the state or federal level. No one actually has sex this way, requesting permission and having it granted perhaps a dozen times in a single encounter.
