Trump propaganda front Breitbart News has never been shy about who they’ve been rooting for this election cycle.

Rigging the Election – Video III: Creamer Confirms Hillary Clinton Involvement
Project Veritas Action has released the third video in a multi-part series that is sending shockwaves through the DNC and the Clinton campaign. The first video explained the dark secrets and the hidden connections and organizations the Clinton campaign uses to incite violence at Trump rallies. The second video exposed a diabolical step-by-step voter fraud strategy discussed by top Democratic operatives and showed one key operative admitting that the Democrats have been rigging elections for fifty years. This latest video takes this investigation even further.

Election 2016: Losing the Lessons, Along with the Votes
This election cycle is not lacking in unsolicited opinions, yet some of us still find ourselves woefully underrepresented in the media and even in the blogs. Most Americans aren’t hyper partisan political junkies that seize on every process story or whisper of a scandal. Most are just people trying to get through their everyday struggles, with the hope that the choices made by the Government won’t cost them their jobs or make their monthly bills go up.

Millennials Offer Hope for SMOD’s Presidential Ambitions
The Sweet Meteor of Death may not prevail in 2016, but its future prospects look bright

Data mining: Dems leading in new-voter registrations in PA, FL

If Harry Reid wants somebody to be taken out, you know that person is a thorn in the Democrats’ side.

GOP Candidates Change Ads, Run as a Check on Hillary
The strategy worked in 1996.

The following takes place in the year 2016, despite what the color correcting would have you believe. Also the blatant mishandling of political power, which rivals that of Henry VIII.

Rigging the Election – Video IV: $20K Wire Transfer From Belize Returned
In the effort to prove the credibility of the undercover donor featured in the videos and to keep the investigation going, Project Veritas Action made the decision to donate twenty thousand dollars to Robert Creamer’s effort. Project Veritas Action had determined that the benefit of this investigation outweighed the cost. And it did. In an unexpected twist, AUFC president Brad Woodhouse, the recipient of the $20,000, heard that Project Veritas Action was releasing undercover videos exposing AUFC’s activities. He told a journalist that AUFC was going to return the twenty thousand dollars. He said it was because they were concerned that it might have been an illegal foreign donation. Project Veritas Action was pleased but wondered why that hadn’t been a problem for the month that they had the money.

The post-Trump GOP
Unlike Steve, I’m convinced that, unfortunately, Hillary Clinton will win this election. Assuming she does, and that the race isn’t very close, what will happen to Trumpism?

Frank Luntz: Rubio would be up eight points against Clinton right now, Kasich would be up 12
Oh please. Hillary may be deeply corrupt and have all the charm of fungus, but she’s well-funded, well-organized, performs well at debates, runs a ruthless oppo shop, and has the sort of ruling-class resume that many voters admire. She’d also be light years ahead of Rubio and Kasich in name recognition, no small thing in a national election.

New Republican ad for GOP Rep. Bob Dold: He denounced Trump ages ago, you know
Via NRO, this isn’t the first anti-Trump ad to run this year on behalf of a vulnerable House Republican. Mike Coffman of Colorado was way ahead of the curve, distancing himself from Trump in a spot in early August. It is, however, the first anti-Trump ad to be produced by the NRCC, an arm of the House Republican caucus. Why are they bailing on Trump now? Simple: Bob Dold’s district in Illinois is one of the bluest in the country to have a Republican representing it in Congress.

Bayh hammered over corruption, Senate record by … HuffPo and Buzzfeed
Will the Democratic effort to recruit Evan Bayh prove their undoing in the next session of Congress? Earlier I noted that the GOP still has opportunities to hold onto its Senate majority thanks to brighter-than-expected prospects in Nevada and New Hampshire. If they succeed, it might be because Democrats went out of their way to pull Bayh out of retirement.

Voter Fraud In Minnesota
That’s a big topic, as Minnesota’s same-day registration scheme is notoriously subject to–in fact, invites–abuse. But a group called Minnesota Voters Alliance has brought to light another problem: substantial numbers of felons, among others, are illegally being allowed to vote, because Minnesota’s Secretary of State refuses to follow the law.

How a London university pocketed millions by faking global warming studies
This story takes place across the pond but it shines a light on some of the current state of “research” in the climate studies field. The Daily Caller has a fascinating report on the University of London and the expensive process they engaged in when commissioning research papers and scholarly work on global warming. The university’s Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) was tasked by the government with providing such educational material for use by Parliament and they delivered it at a hefty price tag to the taxpayers. The only problem is that a lot of the research in question wasn’t even done by them.

Sex trafficking victims: Planned Parenthood “didn’t ask questions”
There are more people living in slavery today than at any other point in the history of mankind. In the United States alone, 400,000 are enslaved, but the people and organizations with the ability to save these individuals choose not to. Instead, they choose to turn a blind eye so they can collect money for forced abortions.

“Quem Deus Vult Perdere, Prius Dementat”
Boston Latin School, founded in 1635, is the oldest public school in America. For more than three centuries, BLS was “a bastion for educating the sons of the Boston ‘Brahmin’ elite,” and this prestigious all-male school did not admit its first female student until 1972. Feminists are now determined to destroy Boston Latin School.

LGBT special interests are planning ahead for a Clinton administration
The LGBT community is getting ready to swarm the White House in the event of a Clinton victory. As always, the focus isn’t on the individual (i.e., a black economist who happens to be gay) but is, instead, on sexual orientation first (i.e., a gay black man who happens to be an economist). To this end, a leading LGBT activist who had a high position in the Obama administration is leading a coalition of 30 LGBT organizations to gather resumes with which to deluge the Clinton White House.

Study: Google searches favor left-wing content
Many conservatives suspect that Google, along with Facebook and other new media giants, are biased in favor of the left. The suspicion is logical. The class that operates these outlets can be viewed as a younger version of the class that operates the liberal mainstream media. Why expect different from it?

Partially-nude female clown charged with chasing cars

Ancient burials suggest a history of blood feuds, brutality and revenge

News Flash: Feminists Hate Men
Sunday, I took notice of a controversy at Columbia University, where feminists tore down posters announcing a scheduled Nov. 1 speech by Christina Hoff Sommers. In researching this incident, I discovered that Columbia senior Roya Hegdahl had incited hatred against Dr. Sommers by labeling her a “rape culture denier.”

Welcome to 2016: “When the Insane Are Normal, the Normal Are Insane”
In case you haven’t noticed, the world has gone crazy. We now live in some kind of alternative universe dreamed up by a science-fiction writer, and it’s comforting to know we’re not alone in feeling this way.

Has the GOP Screwed Itself for 2018, Too?
Yesterday morning, the Cook Political report explained why it is a very real possibility that the GOP loses the Senate in this election cycle. At this point, it’s not pessimistic to think that the Republican Party’s best case scenario is a 50/50 split with the Democrats (giving the Democrats the Senate because the Vice President is the deciding vote). However, 2018 holds some good possibilities for the GOP, as several weak purple/red state Democrats are up for re-election then.

Stacy McCain gets last laugh at Twitter
In February, Twitter banned conservative blogger Robert Stacy McCain, leaving his 90,000 followers in the lurch. Then gay conservative Milo Yiannopoulos. Then Glenn Reynolds, whom they reinstated and who decided not to use Twitter for anything but free promotion of his blog.

The Clichés of Third-Wave Feminism
Today I was working on a long piece about academic feminism while babysitting my youngest grandson, and during my grandson’s nap, I checked my file over at Medium – an innovative platform, by the way – and noticed a response to something I had written.

The Last Crusade: Spain 1936
WHEN THE HEROICS of the Spanish Civil War come up – Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia, Hemingway’s fictions or the effusions of various poets – there is a very large and usually unremarked elephant in the room: Orwell, who actually fought, and Hemingway who wrote about fighting, were on the wrong side.

Why Are You Willing To Be An Idiot?
Rasmussen is one of the worst pollsters to exist in the United States. That’s not my opinion. That is objective fact given Rasmussen’s polling over the last several years. In 2012, Republicans hung their hat on Rasmussen polling only to watch Mitt Romney lose and Scott Rasmussen get booted from his company. Without Scott there, Rasmussen has descended beneath credibility.

Queer Feminism at Marquette University
Marquette University is allegedly Catholic, and also has one of the worst records for suppressing free speech of any campus in the country. Marquette has a “red light” rating from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), meaning that the university’s policy “clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech” and “unambiguously infringes on what is or should be protected expression.”

“For almost a quarter of a century… the Nobel committee acted as if American literature did not exist – and now an American is acting as if the Nobel committee doesn’t exist.”
“Giving the award to Mr. Dylan was an insult to all the great American novelists and poets who are frequently proposed as candidates for the prize. The all-but-explicit message was that American literature, as traditionally defined, was simply not good enough. This is an absurd notion, but one that the Swedes have embraced: In 2008, the Academy’s permanent secretary, Horace Engdahl, declared that American writers ‘don’t really participate in the big dialogue of literature’ and are limited by that ‘ignorance.'”

Suggestion For What To Do With Hillary
When you’re on active duty in the military, much hay is made about the concept of a “lawful order”. You’re to obey all orders, per General Order Number 6. While you retain the absolute right of self defense, you also had better not violate International Law (e.g. Geneva Conventions), Civil Law, or engage in “conduct unbecoming”. The last is pretty much a blank check to burn anyone.

Feminism and the Cult of the True Self
Once upon a time, psychology was about helping people cope with the difficulties of life, to become “well-adjusted” to adulthood. Within my own lifetime — and I could cite my personal experience — practitioners of psychology sought to locate the “root cause” of behavioral problems in order to help people understand why they had the problems they had. This was the justification for what used to be called the “couch trip” of mid-20th century psychoanalysis. In his memoir New York in the Fifties, Dan Wakefield recounts how it seemed that everyone in his circle of young intellectuals was being treated by an analyst.
