Ferguson Again

If one listens only to black “leaders” such as Al Sharpton, it’s easy to believe that minorities that feel affronted have a Constitutional right to riot, burn, and loot other people’s property.

What Motivates Liberal-Progressivism?

The Case Against Liberal Compassion


The writer probes the sentiments driving individual liberal-progessives’ knee-jerk reactions. 

In politics, however, sentiments are less admirable (if we can consider blind adherence to liberal-progressivism admirable at all).  Politicians supporting the welfare state, on both sides of the political aisle, are merely purchasing votes or rewarding financial supporters.  Politicians who support the welfare state for any other reason are either incompetent or engaging in self-delusion.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Is Less Affordable

Now There Can Be No Doubt: Obamacare Has Increased Non-Group Premiums In Nearly All States


The National Bureau of Economic Research, created in the 1930s to churn out statistics supporting New Deal socialism, demonstrates that the administration is yet again misleading the public.

The message is loud and clear: socialism does not cut costs or increase efficiency; it merely steals from producers and uses the proceeds to buy votes.

Constitutional Right To Riot?

Many leaders and citizens in the black community of Ferguson, MO, have called for an end to the riots, looting, property damage, and physical injury that erupted in the wake of the death of a black man shot by the police.

Not included among their number are professional rabble rousers like Al Sharpton or liberal-progressive media such as MSNBC, which have played up the Ferguson story night after night, attacking police “brutality” and supporting black rioters who shot at people, threw stones and bottles at police, while smashing and looting stores in the area.  Support for such overwrought “demonstrations” is a standard liberal-progressive vote-getting tactic intended to identify law-and-order with totalitarian thuggery.


Evidently, under the liberal-progressive, evolving Constitution paradigm, black mobs have special Constitutional rights that immunize them from prosecution.

Democrat/Socialist Party Radicals Oppose Both Hillary And The Party’s “Wall Street” Wing

Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation magazine, in her Washington Post opinion column, lays out the radical, left-wing view point: 
The ‘Democratic wing’ of the Democratic Party wakes up.

Founded in 1865, The Nation is this country’s oldest, still-running far-left, liberal-socialist publication.
