CPAC 2014: Focus On The Big Three Things

With Numbers Like These, No Wonder Harry Reid's Lying

Jane Fonda, Sex Guru for Teenagers?
If a teenager were zipping around Amazon.com looking for "a reliable guide to the turbulent physical and social transitions of adolescence," would that child want to first consult a 76-year-old grandmother who's had three unsuccessful marriages?
Obama's Mistaken Belief That Others See the World as He Sees It
Solipsism. It's a fancy word that means that the self is the only existing reality and that the external world, including other people, are representations of one's own self and can have no independent existence.
Finally, One Obama Radical Bites the Dust
This week, the Senate, by a slim margin assured by opportunist Democrats up for re-election, rejected the nomination of Debo Adegbile, another radical Obama nominee, to head the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department.
Cry Havoc (Racism) and Let Slip the Dogs of War
When seven Democratic senators voted with all of the Republicans to reject Debo Adegbile's nomination to serve as head of the Justice Department's civil rights division, Harry Reid cried racism. It's as if Reid was on autopilot, and the aide who usually touches his elbow to correct him wasn't available. If the aide had been there, he would have whispered, "Um, Senator, you're accusing your own side of racism."
Huffington Post Terrified by “American Dream” Commercial
Yeah, I get it: no-one enjoys the prospect of 40 plus hours per week of the “daily grind”. (For those of you who are liberal, unemployed, or French, the “daily grind” refers to “work”.) But, c’mon… When did we start knocking hard work in this country?
AP Smears Trail Life Boys with Misleading 'Nazi' Photo

A Fiscal Lesson from Germany
Germany isn’t exactly a fiscal role model. Tax rates are too onerous and government spending consumes about 44 percent of economic output. That’s even higher than it is in the United States, where politicians at the federal, state, and local levels divert about 39 percent of GDP into the public sector.
Hillary, Hitler & Cold War II
In assessing the motives and actions of Vladimir Putin, Hillary Clinton compared them to Adolf Hitler's. Almost always a mistake.
Oscars' Fantasy on the Left Coast
The Academy Awards are the left coast's great cultural event of the year, more important to the stars than a Hillary Clinton fundraiser.
Bipartisan: Texas Democrat Wants to Repeal Obamacare and Impeach Obama
Here's a story too funny to not report. In a field of five, no Democrat senatorial candidate received 50% of the votes in yesterday's Texas primary. But one stands no chance of winning the hearts of Democrats...
Where’s the Red Line? Ukraine Will Lose Crimea to Putin
If the Crimeans vote for independence from Ukraine and for association with Russia, will the West extend as much credit to a Crimean referendum as it gave to mob violence in Kyiv? In short, based on the indicators, NightWatch judges that Crimea and the city of Sevastopol will be linked to Russia in some official fashion by the end of March.
Women Leading the Fight Against Islamist Extremism
International Women's Day, celebrated this week for the 106th year, marks continued progress for women across the world, but that progress has been reversed in countries where Islamic fundamentalism has taken hold. And nowhere is women's freedom more under official assault than in Iran.

Support traditional marriage? Believe in the First Amendment and religious liberty? Congrats, you’re a bigoted “fascist” and “homophobe”!
Crimea And Punishment: Who Really Stopped The Russians?
No, Putin was not turned by diplomats or feckless heads of state from the West. He was dissuaded by speculators. Russia was not dissuaded by threats of punishment: Russia was dissuaded by actual punishment, meted out in real time by that most vilified of classes, currency speculators.
Sorry Ben, No Confidence Then and Less Confidence Now
I happen to believe Mark Twain was on to something when he said, "All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure." In fact, it's truer now than ever before. One has to be ignorant about the statistics, the critics, and the overall economy, and go out there and make it happen.
Who Would Care If It Didn't Hurt So Much?
Our Federal Government is out of control. I could end this blog right here and most of the readers would give me a loud Amen. Unfortunately we can't afford to be stoic about the mess in Washington.
Scraping the Rust Off the Iron Curtain
The crisis in the Ukraine will likely end with Russia permanently controlling the Crimea, with the remainder of the country more tightly in its orbit than anticipated a few weeks ago.
Why the Left Obsesses Over ‘Climate Change’
Everyone who hasn’t been living in a cave is aware of the fact that what is now called “climate change” was known, not all that long ago, as “global warming.” That the latter label has largely been displaced by the former is a turn of events that sheds much light into the dark recesses of the leftist’s psyche.
The Bane of Economic Revisions
Most recently the Labor Department reported that our country’s productivity rose a revised 1.8% in the fourth quarter of 2013. That could be good or bad, depending on your perspective, yet it’s down from a previously reported 3.2% and it’s also substantially lower than the 3.5% rise that was declared for the third quarter of 2013.
Gold Scams Revisited
As the financial crisis took hold, a flood of new and inexperienced buyers entered the market, creating an opportunity for unscrupulous metals dealers to swindle their way to massive profits.
It's pointless to pay attention to foreign policy when a Democrat is president, unless you enjoy having your stomach in a knot. As long as a Democrat sits in the White House, America will be repeatedly humiliated, the world will become a much more dangerous place -- and there's absolutely nothing anybody can do about it.
