Not Allowed To Disagree

Some researchers at taxpayer-funded universities have decided that groups who disagree with the theory of man-made global warming are on the same level as an organized crime syndicate, and should be investigated by the Obama White House. These twenty climate scientists sent a letter to Obama asking him to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, the RICO Act, to launch an investigation into groups which they claim “have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change.”

Trump's chance is better than estimates

Conventional wisdom is that Donald Trump has very little chance, and his campaign is only serving to discredit more mainstream Republicans.

Statistician Nate Silver of 538 writes:
So, could Trump win? We confront two stubborn facts: first, that nobody remotely like Trump has won a major-party nomination in the modern era.4 And second, as is always a problem in analysis of presidential campaigns, we don’t have all that many data points, so unprecedented events can occur with some regularity. For my money, that adds up to Trump’s chances being higher than 0 but (considerably) less than 20 percent.
I think that this analysis is wrong. The Republicans nominated Mitt Romney in 2012, and Trump is the candidate most like Romney. Both are super-rich businessmen, with no Washington political experience.

Second, there is a widespread belief that our leaders are selling us out like never before. The business, media, and political elites have no loyalty to the nation-state. Barack Obama pushes his leftist policies, even when unpopular and contrary to law. Republicans have taken control of both houses of Congress, but what do they have to show for it?

Breitbart reports:
According to the Reuters survey, 58 percent Americans say they “don’t identify with what America has become.” While Republicans and Independents are the most likely to agree with this statement, even 45 percent of Democrats share this feeling.

More than half of Americans, 53 percent, say they “feel like a stranger” in their own country. A minority of Americans feel “comfortable as myself” in the country.
Trump appeals to those voters because he promises policies to benefit Americans, not the rest of the world.

When the Democrats decide that Trump is a real threat, then we will see the press demonize him. We will see a lot more articles like this one, which consists mainly of calling him a fascist over and over again. It makes more sense to argue that Obama and Clinton are fascists.

Americans Give Public Thanks to God

Today, as we celebrate the great American religious holiday, Thanksgiving, let's recall how this tradition started. In 1789, a week after Congress approved the First Amendment, President George Washington issued the first national Thanksgiving Proclamation. Here are his words: "Whereas both Houses of Congress ... requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. ...

What To Do About Sanctuary Cities

Conservatives know that sanctuary cities are a big problem for America. Not only do they lead to violent criminal offenders being released back onto our streets to prey on innocent American citizens, but they also are a serious violation of federal law. Even the District of Columbia, the very place where the federal government is housed, is among the hundreds of cities that refuse to work with the federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency, called ICE. What’s even more shocking is that many of these municipalities that blatantly refuse to hand over felonious illegals to ICE are given “federal law enforcement assistance funding” every year as payment for the very thing that they are not doing. These facts should have every American wondering what can be done to stop this criminal action from taking place.
