How can Harry Reid, who claims that a rubber beat him up, try to compare Marco Rubio to that loser John Edwards?
Who is the biggest loser, the pugilist Harry Reid or John Edwards?
One must remember these two are the face of the radical Left Democratic Party.
But liberals are incensed even by the very description of the product:
The Jenner costume comes with a white padded top, matching shorts, a brunette wig, and a sash that says “Call Me Caitlyn,” “so that there will be no mistaking who you are dressed as this Halloween,
You probably won’t break any Twitter records when you wear this outfit like Caitlyn did when she first made her account, but you’ll be sure to get a few laughs out of your friends and the other guests at the get together.
When Vanity Fair used its reputation to produce airbrushed and PhotoShopped propaganda showing an elderly man dressed as a Playboy bunny, we were supposed to take that seriously. But the utter ridiculousness of it is exposed when regular men, who haven’t been airbrushed or PhotoShopped, dress the same way.
I think ridicule is a great tool to be used against liberals. I will be on the lookout for even more costumes this holiday season:
1) An anchor baby costume (complete with anchor)
2) Jeb Bush dressed as a Peruvian street musician
3) A “Planned Barrenhood” fetus with an open cross section with dollar signs written on different body parts
4) An Elizabeth Warren Native American costume
5) A Harry Reid dark glasses/black eye kit and a tie that reads “Courtesy of the mob!”
6) An orange Hillary Clinton jumpsuit with the words “Orange is the new Black” written on it
Can you think of any others?

President Obama’s politicization of the massacre in the gun-free zone that was Umpqua Community College in Rosburg, Oregon shows how selective he is about which shootings he comments on to advance his gun control agenda and ignores the fact that in another Oregon town, Clackamas, an armed citizen cut short a similar mass killing.
In Obama’s Chicago, arguably the most gun-controlled city in America, if not the world, the carnage at Umpua Community College is considered an average weekend. A few days earlier, Lolita Wells of Chicago, mother of six and grandmother of six, was gunned down, along with her pregnant daughter Patricia Chew. Wells’ baby grandson was also wounded but survived. About this President Obama said nothing.
Those searching for motives for the Umpqua killings in which the shooter asked his victims if they were Christians should ponder this connection between one of the Americans who prevented a

A rabid supporter of gun control edited a recent video of conservative talker andHands Off My Gun author Dana Loesch to depict her bloody demise.
Conservative talk radio host and gun-rights advocate Dana Loesch says she has reached out to the FBI after an Internet troll edited a promotional video she recently did for the National Rifle Association to depict her bloody gun death.
Twitter user @TomAdelsbach, who describes himself as a “Graphic Artist, Website Designer, Flash Animator” from Chicago, edited the video to show Ms. Loesch shooting herself in the head. His now-deleted post read, “Dana Loesch’s new promotional video for the #NRA ‘backfires’ on her,” a local Fox affiliate reported.

Sun Tzu’s Art of War admonished more than 2500 years ago, “Hostile armies may face each other for years, striving for the victory which is decided in a single day. This being so, to remain in ignorance of the enemy’s condition simply because one grudges the outlay of a hundred ounces of silver in honors and emoluments, is the height of inhumanity.” In other words, noting that it probably costs our armed forces millions of dollars to kill one enemy (the figure waspurportedly $200,000 during the Vietnam War), six-figure outlays for collaborators and spies are dirt cheap.
Utopia and a World without ISIS
Sir Thomas More’s Utopia described very explicitly how a government can destroy a corruptible enemy organization.
“As soon as they declare war, [the Utopians] take care to have a great many schedules,that are sealed with their common seal, affixed in the most conspicuous places of their enemies’ country. This is carried secretly, and done in many places all at once. In these they promise great rewards to such as shall kill the prince, and lesser in proportion to such as shall kill any other persons who are those on whom, next to the prince himself, they cast the chief balance of the war. And they double the sum to him that, instead of killing the person so marked out, shall take him alive, and put him in their hands. They offer not only indemnity, but rewards, to such of the persons themselves that are so marked, if they will act against their countrymen. By this means those that are named in their schedules become not only distrustful of their fellow-citizens, but are jealous of one another, and are much distracted by fear and danger; for it has often fallen out that many of them, and even the prince himself, have been betrayed, by those in whom they have trusted most; for the rewards that the Utopians offer are so immeasurably great, that there is no sort of crime to which men cannot be drawn by them.”
There is no need to carry the messages secretly today because social media, as used by ISIS itself for recruiting purposes, is even more effective. The basic idea is to foment distrust among enemy personnel, and there are several ways to do this with social media along with the Deep Web.

From American Thinker
Armed with virtually every advantage in terms of empirical evidence, moral integrity, and logic, those fighting progressivism cannot move the needle of societal thought except for brief interludes; and even these are usually triggered by the left themselves through manifestations of their sheer ineptitude which are then soon forgotten, leaving the ball to once again start rolling to the “left.” It is time to break the mold. We can begin by focusing on three simple, but critical, principles of political philosophy.
Principle #1: Public Opinion Is What Matters, Not Politics. David Hume’s most basic, but critical, observation in his First Principles of Government was that, “FORCE is always on the side of the governed, the governors have nothing but opinion to support them. It is therefore on opinion only that government is founded.” He even extended this maxim to the “most despotic” regimes. Political thinkers ranging from Machiavelli to Locke to Rousseau expressed the same idea. It means that Barack Obama’s threat to use his “pen and phone” is not as dangerous as the public’s opinion that this is a good thing, or at least, not a bad thing. Opinions lead laws (and lawlessness), not the other way around. Opinions also lead elections. Political campaigns are merely a manifestation, or intensification, of the underlying influences that have already shaped opinions.
Principle #2: Opinions Are Simple, Emotional Constructs. Public opinions are rarely well thought-out conclusions and few people are willing to expend the energy to develop their views. This is possibly the most difficult notion for deeper thinkers or well-informed people, such as those fighting progressivism, to accept. You can blame it on intellectual laziness, but this is how people organize information throughout their lives. Instead, public opinion is largely formed through repetition, simple slogans and symbols, pivotal events and strong personalities, and personal experiences, biases, and worldviews. The influence of groupthink magnifies all this, in large measure because it is more agreeable to live one’s life conforming to socially correct opinion (Ayn Rand’s ‘consensus reality’). Finally, opinion is more strongly based in emotion than anything else. Scientists studying the formation and strengthening of neuron connections find that emotions always trump intellect and, in fact, are the foundation of intellect.
Why are the radical Muslim theocracies in the Middle East willing to spend millions, perhaps billions of dollars to build mosques in the United States for Muslim refugees, but will not give shelter or charity to their fellow Muslims in their countries?
al-Tabarani, Hasan – “The most beloved of deeds according to Allah the Mighty, the Magnificent, is that you bring happiness to a fellow Muslim, or relieve him of distress, or pay off his debt or stave away hunger from him.”
