The Amnesty Mob Versus America

June 21, 2013 by

1

By Michelle Malkin ~ You can try to put “conservative” lipstick on the lawless amnesty mob. In the end, however, it’s still a lawless mob. The big government/big business alliance to protect illegal immigration got a lot of mileage using foolish Republicans Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan as front men. But the true colors of […]

The Deer Crossing Principle of Social Policy

October 25, 2012 by

0

By Edward Cline ~ Listening to a video recently that featured numerous stills of deer, deer crossing signs, and of cars dented or mangled by close encounters between reckless drivers and bounding deer, I had an epiphany: I finally grasped, for all time and for all mankind, how statist economists and society managers thought. A […]

A Dry Bones Cartoon ~ Here in Israel we’ve got a local chapter of the anarchist, anti-capitalist, “öccupy” movement, complete with violent demonstrations, police baiting, and “Social Justice” posters. According to the Jewish Telegraph Agency: Social protests turn violent in Tel Aviv June 24, 2012 TEL AVIV (JTA) –“Social protests in Tel Aviv turned violent […]

Defeating Obama’s Socialist Propaganda

By Mark Alexander   The Fallacy of the Left’s ‘Fairness’ Doctrine “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If ‘Thou shalt not covet’ and […]

WashPost Columnist: Occupy DC Protesters Just Like Yogi Bear

January 27, 2012 by

1

By Ken Shepherd ~ Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Yogi Bear lived in squalor in an urban park picking fights with the cops, urinating in public, and vexing local coffee shop owners and patrons. But Washington Post Metro columnist Robert McCartney today romanticized the average Occupy DC squatter as reminiscent of […]

Americans Remain Unconcerned by Income Inequality

January 14, 2012 by

0

By Lachlan Markay A new poll shows that, despite attempts by liberal protesters and politicians to inject class resentment into the national debate, Americans, by and large, remain unconcerned by income inequality. Gallup reports that only 2 percent of Americans list the “divide between rich and poor” as the most important economic issue facing the […]

Occupy D.C. Protesters Flee Camps Amid Cold Weather, Rat Sightings

January 6, 2012 by

By Rob Bluey The tents still occupy two parks in Washington, D.C., but there are fewer people living in them as protesters with the Occupy movement flee for warmer quarters. The desertion of the Occupy D.C. is fueling class divisions within the movement among “those who can’t go home again and those who chose not […]

Occupy’s Celebrity One Percent Backers

January 4, 2012 by

1

By Brent Bozell The “Occupy Wall Street” movement has hit several huge road blocks. First it was the cold temperatures that sent many home. Next was the long-overdue decision to evacuate them out of public parks by liberal Democrat mayors. But another huge road block that’s emerging: their enormous hypocrisy on wealth. The “occupiers” have […]

Two Years After Tea Party, Time Calls ‘The Protester’ Their Person of the Year

December 16, 2011 by

2

By Tim Graham Time is so liberal it was obvious they could not consider the Tea Party protests as a Person of the Year entry. But that’s not true with Occupy Wall Street, since Time’s 2011 Person of the Year is suddenly now “The Protester.” Kurt Andersen’s essay announced: “‘Massive and effective street protest’ was […]

Miley Cyrus, Occupier Poster Girl

December 3, 2011 by

0

By Michelle Malkin She’s perfect. Miley Cyrus, Hollywood’s perpetually half-dressed wild child with an insatiable appetite for attention, jumped in front of the Occupy Wall Street bandwagon this week. The young Disney mogul unveiled a YouTube anthem hailing the aimless, anti-capitalist protesters. Smells like opportunistic teen queen spirit. Like so much of the warmed-over, Big […]

The War on Police

November 27, 2011 by

By Cliff Kincaid Rather than being victims of police brutality, a new video shows that Occupiers at UC Davis knew they were going to be pepper sprayed and didn’t mind it. Indeed, the new video evidence indicates that the entire confrontation with the police was staged for the benefit of the media, which took the […]

‘Occupy Wall Street’ Steadily Becoming Just Another Big Labor Protest

November 22, 2011 by

0

By Lachlan Markay News that two major labor unions will co-opt an “Occupy” protest in Washington next month solidifies two facts about the waning protest movement: it is an entirely ordinary function of left-wing activism, and it is wholly unserious about addressing special interests’ influence over the political process. The Washington Post reports that the […]

Occupy Wall Street Focused? Come On

November 17, 2011 by

By Tom McLaughlin Occupy Wall Street (OWS) isn’t “focused” as Nancy Pelosi claims. It’s about as many grievances as there are people in attendance at its multiple sites around the country. I’ve questioned people at two local sites in my futile search for unified themes, but the only constant I found other than discontent was […]

America Started as a Protest

By Alan Caruba So I am watching the police in Portland, Oregon drive the Occupy protesters from some area they choose, tearing down the makeshift living quarters, tossing the signs onto a pile to be carted off. All across America mayors have decided that the pattern of disease, crime, and uncivil behavior has lost its […]

Anti-Semitism, a Growth Industry in Bad Times

November 9, 2011 by

2

By Alan Caruba In bad times, anti-Semitism seems to crawl out of the sewers like a repugnant odor. It is not subject to a rational response. It is pure emotion and a very nasty one at that. Lately we got a whiff of it at some of the Occupy protests. On November 3rd, the Anti-Defamation […]
