During Tom Price’s confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Bernie Sanders rebuked his claim that we are a compassionate society.

“No, we are not a compassionate society,” Sanders said. “In terms of our relationship with poor and working people, our record is worse than virtually any other country on earth.”

The Resurgent

This has been repeated over and over in the last decade. Rand Paul’s response to Sanders was a thing of beauty.

“One of the things that’s extraordinary about our country is just two years ago, in 2014, we gave away $400 billion — privately, not the government, individually — to churches and to charities,” Paul said. “We’re an incredibly compassionate society. This was misplaced in sort of the wonky numbers of this number and that number within health care how much we do help each other.”

“Not only do we help each other within our own county, I’d bet you most — half the physicians in my community in Bowling Green have gone on international trips and done international charity work and all that is lost in saying that we’re this heartless, terrible country, and I would just argue the opposite,” Paul continued. “I think the greatness of our country and the greatness in the compassion of our country — we give away more than the gross domestic product of most of these socialized countries around the world.”

There is a huge difference in what Sanders and Paul/Price are saying. Rand Paul’s expectation is that the government is small and that it taxes the people reasonably little. The people then, not the government, can choose to do with their money how they desire. Sanders, on the other hand, expects the government to provide services to the people, and to do so requires large amounts of taxes and government structure.

When Sanders, on Wednesday, makes the claim that we lack compassion for the working people and the poor, he is saying that the government doesn’t do enough for these individuals. When Paul and Price say that we are compassionate, they point to all the individuals and private institutions do and give to society.

If it is your expectation that the government should provide for the people, you would be right to think we don’t care. But then look at the $400 billion given to church’s and charities that goes to help the people you think the government isn’t doing enough for. Maybe, instead of demanding that the government take more money from your fellow citizens, give your own money to these causes and make a difference.

Those darn Russian hackers. We need to increase our security. Or increase our employee’s awareness of security issues such as phishing. One link click opened up the email account of a Hillary election employee.

The email was a fake warning from hackers that appeared to be from Google, telling Podesta to change his password through a link they provided. The “phishing” scam is a popular one that depends on the gullibility of the victim.

Or a typo:

“This is a legitimate email,” Charles Delavan, a Clinton campaign aide, replied to another of Mr. Podesta’s aides, who had noticed the alert. “John needs to change his password immediately.”

Having read the message, Podesta must have thought it was OK to click the link and reset his password — exactly the opposite of what Delavan intended.

Mr. Delavan, in an interview, said that his bad advice was a result of a typo: He knew this was a phishing attack, as the campaign was getting dozens of them. He said he had meant to type that it was an “illegitimate” email, an error that he said has plagued him ever since. And that’s how more than 60,000 emails of Hillary’s top aides fell into the hands of allegedly Russian state-sponsored hackers.

The Blaze

to explain something to someone, typically a man to woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing

Likely the first, and very likely the last, time that the word “mansplaining” will be used here, but it’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this video. Here you go: Van Jones telling a woman that she, as a woman, should have voted for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is a woman.

Showing yet again how inept he is, Tim Kaine said what now?

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said Monday he was saddened by the “senseless act of gun violence” at Ohio State University, even though the attacker used a butcher knife and a car.

Mr. Kaine, who ran on the 2016 Democratic ticket with presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was accused of pushing a gun-control agenda after his Twitter post blaming firearms for the siege.

Washington Post

After years of every terrorist act being used to remind us that we need more gun control, Tim Kaine followed the script earlier this week. However, it wasn’t a gun that the attacker used, but a knife and a car. Let’s require people register their knives and highly restrict access to cars and see if that helps.

Don’t get caught up in manipulative words. Communism doesn’t work nor has it ever and it has been the cause of more deaths in the 20th and 21st Centuries than the Nazis.

From Courtney Kirchoff of Louder with Crowder:

To use Obama’s oft used phrase, “Let me be clear” this is tyrannical. We have the executive telling STATE schools to allow transgender people to use whatever bathroom they deem appropriate for how they’re feeling that day. And not JUST bathrooms, but locker rooms, where boys and girls strip down and get naked. Your president, ladies and gentleman, has just issued a war on women.

Yes, I said it. The left, in an attempt to be all “inclusive” has just said women don’t matter. Our feelings of security and safety do not matter. Our privacy does not matter. Our gender, the left says, is merely a societal construct. This issue right here, transgenders in bathrooms, and transgenders being supported cart blanche, is ultimate proof modern feminism is a farce. It is a failure.

If you consider yourself a feminist and support this kind of lunacy, you no longer have my ear nor my sympathy.

If you are an American and do not see the tyranny of a President putting forth a “guideline” or edict with threat of removing federal funding from schools, you need to get educated on why this nation exists. Laws are created by the legislative branch, not the executive. Funding is controlled by the legislative branch, not the executive. The President is in breach of the Constitution and way out of line.

De Blasio also spoke out about his distaste for the chicken chain during a recent unrelated press conference, urging New Yorkers not to support the restaurant. “What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong. I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them.”

Christian Post

The left is getting really weird lately. I was raised with the phrase “sticks and stones” echoing in my head, but NYC mayor, Bill De Blasio is trying to convince hungry, chicken-loving New Yorkers that they shouldn’t go to Chick-fil-a, not because of any bad treatment of customers or employees, but because of the personal, biblical views of the owners. Great customer service, high ratings with employees, solid business. But bigots.

Yeah.

Trigger warning: sandwiches may cause feelings of holy conviction. Only eat if you aren’t… chicken.

Even though we live in the age of freely accessible information, thanks to you, the Leftist lynch mob, our citizenry is dumber than ever, calling for justice before you know the crime. Demanding a white cop be strung up and killed for daring to be white and on the job, or a hunter to be hunted and killed himself, you never never pause to say “Hey, maybe there’s two sides to this story and we should wait for answers.” No. What matters is merely your hatred, the hashtags and the race to be the dumbest flying turd-nuggets in the wicked brigade of #JusticeWithoutFacts.

Louder With Crowder

Another week, another liberal lynch mob angry about another situation they barely understand, but don’t care to know much about other than the race of those involved. Can we get just one media team to say, “Guys, maybe we can wait until we know more before we light our torches”? This is just ugly, guys.

However, the phrase has taken on a different sentiment as it is often worn by anti-Muslim protesters as a badge of honor during rallies and is seen by some as a provocation.

Mashable

Only Liberals could hail as art and brave a “painting” of Mary made of cow dung and pornagraphic images in one breath and scold those taunting jihadists— that are throwing gays off rooftops and selling young girls as sex slaves in ISIS— for being provocative in the next.

The reality is that this is no more provocative than the Coptics in Egypt tattooing crosses on their wrists or any Christian wearing a cross around their neck. It is a statement to the world that we are not afraid of death because Christ defeated it.

Those that love free speech stand by free speech. Those that you claim this hat tries to provoke are tired of a group of people using death threats— and killings, rapes, and more— to shut up the opposition. They are bravely facing down an enemy that is fearlessly tearing through the Middle East and you pansies are too afraid of offending anyone to speak the truth. It’s why I love George Orwell more and more.

In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

“I have not spoken with [the president] about the reaction to the remarks, but I know that there is a failed presidential candidate and an RNC chairman from the past who have criticized us,” Schultz said. “But I don’t have a response to either of those two people.”

This is what is called an ad hominem argument, Mr. Schultz. You might think you can just blow off the remarks of anyone that disagrees with you or the president, but to do so is pure and utter arrogance.
