The U.S. economy is a house of cards. Every aspect of it is fraudulent, and the illusion of recovery is created with fraudulent statistics. American capitalism itself is an illusion. All financial markets are rigged. Massive liquidity poured into financial markets by the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing inflates stock and bond prices and drives interest […]
NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is, like many famous people, plenty mad at Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for saying some pretty inflammatory things about black people and the sport he loves. But he’s equally angry at the mainstream media for dive-bombing Sterling’s racist remarks like vultures.
Democrats’ charge that Cliven Bundy is a racist; and by extension, so are all conservatives. But compared to the left, conservatives are practically Rosa Parks. After all, Bundy is a lone Nevada rancher. He’s hardly a spokesman for anyone other than himself; and not even a particularly good one.

Somewhere in an alternate universe law enforcement agents tasked with running checkpoints go out of their way to uphold the Constitution. For April Fool’s Day, Reason shows us what that would be like. H/T: Reason
Another attempt from Congressional Democrats to define the media faces a shaky future. If Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) is right, the so-called media “shield law” bill, which essentially segments application of the 1st Amendment to lock out citizen journalists while favoring members of the media establishment, will never see a floor vote.

The U.S. political system is on a theft binge of consuming the assets of Americans by whatever method it can contrive. It is financial war and the political system is winning, backed by the police power of the State. Any thinking person can clearly see that the U.S. system is collapsing. Better said, it is self destructing in many ways.
Facing massive backlash from the public over its announced plan to place government contractors in the newsrooms of TV stations and print media to “study critical information needs,” the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it would abandon the idea only one day after the plan was made public. The FCC billed its “Multi-Market Study of […]
The brash Exene Cervenka, who used to front legendary punk band X, is selling her stuff and packing out of Orange County, Calif. – her home for more than three decades – to settle down in Austin, Texas. Why? She’s sick of California’s oppressive regulations and laws.
President Obama’s State of the Union pledge to “act with or without Congress” marks a milestone in Presidential usurpation of Congressional authority.
