Asking questions as Judge Andrew Napolitano did in a recent broadcast on his now cancelled daily show may very well be the reason behind his recent dismissal from Fox. Though specific details are hard to come by because the Judge has yet to give any interviews on the matter, it’s believed that his refusal to bow to commonly manufactured media narratives is among one of several key reasons he his no longer with the network.

Speaking at a Democratic rally in Boston on Friday, former Secretary of State and potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said “Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs, they always say that.”

Clinton then followed with, “Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”

“You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics?” she added. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”

In 2012, President Obama created a firestorm when he said “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Many interpreted Obama’s comments as reflecting a general a flippant attitude toward small business by Democrats.

Clinton made her comments Friday while stumping for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley

Remember when the Obama Administration was meant to serve as the model for how a transparent government is supposed to operate? That promise of “hope’n’change” has produced the most secretive government administrations in the history of this nation.
 
To add insult to injury, the Democrats have continually fought to defend the president’s violations, abuses and secrecy with a hubris not seen in government since the days of King Louis XVI.
On Friday, Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional representative for the District of Columbia, defended the Obama Administration angrily as she declared that Americans have no right to know what goes on in their government.
“You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Norton claimed during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.
Allow me to make this clear: A Democrat representative told the House Oversight Committee that they have no right to scrutinize government. The committee, as the name would suggest, is responsible for overseeing the federal government as a check against abuses of power.
What Norton seems to have confused is that it is the very principle of scrutiny that defines a government that is equipped with a separation of powers. Each branch of government checks the power of the other branches of government.

If you live in the great state of Georgia, then you can’t help but hear about the alleged voter suppression that is currently underway with the New Georgia Project. Inflammatory statements drawing direct comparisons to the Ku Klux Klan have become common-place as Democrats try to turn Georgia into a blue state. Their claim is that the office of Republican Secretary of State is involved in a complex voter suppression plan to keep blacks from voting in the mid-term and other elections by impeding voter registration. The role of Georgia’s Secretary of State to ensure secure, accessible and fair elections. Has Secretary Brian Kemp done this, or has his office intentionally attempted to keep blacks from voting? Let’s take a look at some of the claims and fact checks available from the Secretary’s website

Claim: The New Georgia project “flagged” the 25 fraudulent voter registration forms that have been confirmed as forgeries and delivered them to the Office of the Secretary of State.

Fact: Each and every one of the confirmed forgeries came to the Investigations Division from county elections officials.  The New Georgia Project did not self-report any of the 25 confirmed forged voter registration forms.

Claim: The Office of the Georgia Secretary of State is refusing to process 51,000 voter registration applications.

Fact: The Office of the Secretary of State does not process any voter registration applications.  Applications are processed at the county level.  (OCGA 21-2-226)  Any voter registration application that is received by the Office of the Secretary of State is sent to the local county election office within 24 hours.  Currently, there is absolutely no backlog of applications waiting to be sent to the counties.  Any backlog would need to be addressed by county election officials.  The deadline for voter registration is October 6th in order to participate in the November 4th General Election.

Claim: This issue has been fully investigated and only minor problems were found.

And infantalizes our troops as Democrats always do.

We all know the full story here. Dopey vice president who can’t conceive of ever going to war in Syria rips opponent for seeming to suggest this very thing, only to find himself two years later hoping no one will remember he said that because, boy, whadaya know, here we are bombing Syria!

But wasn’t just Syria, and to me that’s not even the most egregious thing here. Biden also drones on about how horrible it was to oppose a date certain for bringing “our warriors” home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and tell me if you hear the same thing I hear in this comment:

When Democrats talk about members of the Armed Forces – those on active duty but especially veterans – they have a tendency to infantalize them. You pick it up here in his reference to “our warriors.” It drips with implication that the troops are helpless victims to whom we simply owe the favor of bringing them home immediately, regardless of whether the mission has been accomplished. Why, to leave them in the field one day longer, how dare you heartless Republicans!

By George, I think she’s got it — check out this hilarious video of a recovering liberal, now conservative, stating her Top Ten Reasons why she’s no longer a Democrat. One thing is for certain, the younger generation in America is starting to realize that hopey-changey thing ain’t working for them and their future. I guarantee you’ll bust a laugh with this one. Hat tip to @ellysa_maye and her exceptional use of social media to make her point.

And if you need 10 reasons to consider voting Democrat (like that’s going to happen) here are some good ‘uns.

Umm, yeah. These really awkward moments in political history are enough to make anyone facepalm. Incidentally, one of the moments is inaccurate.

Though potential 2016 presidential contenders have shied away from giving a firm “yes” or “no” answer to the question everyone wants to know the answer to – “Are you running?” – one person just took a big step forward.

Author and retired neurosurgeon Benjamin Carson told radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt that “the likelihood is strong” that he will be seen on the debate stage next year. Though the Republican nomination field will probably be large, Carson says that if the people want him to run, he’ll do it.

Giving a “no later than” final decision end date of May 2015, Carson says he is thoughtfully weighing whether he is best suited for the job, and carefully examining whether Americans truly want a country that is “for, of and by the people.”

He was thrust into the national spotlight in 1987, when he became the first surgeon to successfully separate twins conjoined at the head. He returned to the national stage in 2013 after his iconic speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, where he espoused conservative ideas while President Obama sat 5 feet away.

It’s as if CNN was putting new correspondent Jay Carney through an initiation process.

Following the President’s remarks on the situation in Iraq and Syria and his plans to combat the growing threat of the ISIS terrorist organization, CNN host Anderson Cooper had Obama’s former Press Secretary on air to discuss the proposed plans with Senator John McCain.

The veteran GOP Senator came out swinging, and didn’t let up until the very end. Every time Carney insisted that the two should “agree to disagree,” McCain came back with different versions of “facts are pesky things.”

Live TV is a very different game than the orchestrated and (at most times) agreeable setting of the White House press briefing room. Carney was just baptized by fire, courtesy of the Maverick.

This is an amazing, unplanned performance from a well spoken Marine — Staff Sergeant Dean… I’d have him in my corner any day.
