Here is a clear example of a decline in economic literacy to start with.
In the early sixties, you had the head of the democrat party saying things like:
“…an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough jobs or enough profits.” — President John F Kennedy
Here in the early 21st Century, we have a former, and probably future democrat candidate for President spouting nonsense like this:
Really, she said that. What’s worse is the moonbats who actually believe this nonsense.
Let’s go to the video.
It’s not just HRC, back in 2010, another democrat was stumped by the question, “How do you create a job?”

You remember Christina “Tita” Ayala, the Connecticut state rep recently arrested on 19 counts of vote fraud. If you don’t, it probably because it didn’t get much news coverage. It didn’t promote the news media agenda on two counts. First, it was an actual case of vote fraud, which they constantly claim doesn’t happen, and she is a democrat.
This wasn’t an “isolated incident” either. Let us review some recent news.
‘Calibration error’ changes GOP votes to Dem in Illinois county. Let’s be honest here, it was perfectly “calibrated” for an election in democrat controlled Illinois. The only error was that someone actually complained about it.
Update: Mr. Reynolds makes the following true statement about democrats, “Remember, you don’t just have to beat them. You have to beat them beyond the margin of fraud.”
A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny
A classic by the late Grandmaster. It is set in the month of October, which each day being a chapter. The story is told by Snuff, a watchdog, who like his companion Jack, is the owner of several Curses. One of Jack’s involves a large knife. Whenever there is a full moon on October 31, a group of people and their animal companions gather together and work toward a ritual on the night of the 31st. They are trying to either open or keep closed, a gateway for the Elder Gods (think Lovecraft). So far, the Closers have always won. Up until the end, it’s hard to tell who is an Opener and who is a closer, or even who is in the game. Others who are in the area with Snuff and Jack include: a vampire called “The Count” and his bat; a mad Russian monk and his snake, Crazy Jill and her black cat, the Great Dective and his sidekick; and Larry Talbot and his furry alter ego. Zelezny had a lot of fun with this book. If you can pick up a copy with the Gahn Wilson illustrations, you are in for a bonus treat.

Joe “Plugs” Biden’s son Hunter was booted out of the Navy for failing a mandatory drug test. In this case, he tested positive for cocaine. Hunter was only the Navy for about month before his illegal drug use was detected. He needed, not one, but two special waivers to enter the Naval Reserve in 2013. One for his age (i.e over 40), and one for his prior drug conviction. Waivers are usually given special skills in short supply, not “public relations”, which was Plugs Jr’s Navy job. It’s pretty clear that the only reason he got those waivers was that his dad is our Dear Leader‘s bullet proof vest. I’m kinda surprised that this story even ran the New York Times. I’m not surprised that they buried the story on page A22 of the print edition. If this had been the son of a senior Republican elected official, this would have been front page, above the fold news. The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.
Speaking of Presidents, AoSHQ shows how a President should behave. Here is a hint, it isn’t spending more time on the golf course than in intelligence briefings.
Back to one of Barry’s many, many scandals. Sharyl Attkinsson is still digging up fresh dirt on the Obama so called “Justice Department” illegally running firearms to Mexican drug cartels.
It’s good to know American still has real heroes. Example: Veteran stands up for 2nd Amendment at Chicago anti-gun forum
In democrat controlled Los Angeles, CA, police have been sending out patrol cars that collect the licence plate number of every car around them. These “Law Enforcement” agencies have refused to release any information about the data they have collected because, wait for it, every single car seen is under investigation. Really.

Larry Coreia makes the book pick again. This time with the second book in his hard-boiled noir series complete with more than a bit of magic thrown in. It’s the 1930’s and magic has been around for about a hundred years. It started with just a few people, but it’s been growing pretty steady, so by the time this story takes place it’s pretty mainstream. Things pick up where the last book left off.
The good guys have managed to defeat what they thought was their greatest enemy, but they were mistaken. Not about killing the bad guy, just about him being their greatest enemy. The hard part is convincing even their allies about the oncoming evil. Before they can face that evil, they have to deal with a plot to register and round up all the magically active people in America. Hitler was put in front of a firing squad early in this reality, but there are still “good progressives” that want to put people in camps and eliminate the trouble makers. Lots of action. new bad guys, plot twists, and did I mention lots of action. Oh, and remember, don’t get on Faye’s bad side.

Let’s start with that staunch supporter of all things democrat, the so called “public service union”, SEIU. One of their organizers has been arrested for possession of crack cocaine and other narcotics.
Let’s be honest, Warren was uniquely unqualified for her current position and was elected on a flood of DNC & far left extremist PAC negative ads and an illegal state paid for mass mailing (of course MA AG Coakley found nothing illegal. “Nothing! I See Nothing” as a old fascist NCO used to say on TV). It should not be a surprise that she will see out the ‘useful idiots’ who voted for her.
Ask any Obama Kool-Aide ™ drinking leftist and they will tell you that there is absolutely no voter fraud.
They will, of course, be lying. Here is yet another example. A Connecticut state representative, a democrat, has been charged with nineteen (19) counts of vote fraud. Christina “Tita” Ayala, a democrat representing Bridgeport, was arrested last Friday. The charges include “voting in local and state elections in districts she did not live” and providing “fabricated evidence to state Election Enforcement Commission investigators that showed she lived at an address in a district where she voted while actually living outside the district”.
Most democrats will parrot the party lie about voter id laws “disenfranchising” poor people. The truth is that democrats are against voter id laws because they make vote fraud so much harder, and they depend on vote fraud to elect their extremist candidates.
Take note of #2 & #4
2. Fact: Voter fraud has altered the outcome of elections. Senator Al Franken (D-Lino Lakes), the Saturday Night Live clown, is in the United States Senate because of voter fraud. Franken won his election because Minnesota has same-day voter registration, where a person can register to vote and cast a ballot simultaneously. Felons were ineligible to vote but did so anyhow — by the thousands (1099 of them to be exact). This means that Franken owes his Senate seats to graduates of Faribault and Lino Lakes. Remember, Franken won by only 312 votes. News media in Minnesota contacted many of the felons and they admitted they were proud of their votes for Franken. Not a one voted for Norm Coleman. But it’s worse. Al Franken was the 60th vote to pass Obamacare over a filibuster. Because of voter fraud, Obamacare passed.
4. Fact: Eric Holder’s Justice Department is facilitating voter fraud. It isn’t hard to find the ways Eric Holder’s radical version of law enforcement is facilitating voter fraud. That’s the central story of Crimes Against the Republic. For starters, multiple individuals have been caught voting more than once in a federal election. This is a federal felony. The response from the Justice Department? Crickets. Take Wendy Rosen (pictured above). She was a Democrat running for Congress. We have reached the Alice in Wonderland moment where a Democrat can pen an editorial admitting she violated federal election law and no federal charges ensue.
Her excuse for committing a federal felony? Because election integrity laws make it hard for the poor and blacks to vote. She actually says this. Maybe Eric Holder isn’t prosecuting Wendy Rosen because 1) Rosen is a Democrat and 2) she is mimicking Holder’s own talking points. Such are the lawless ways of the Obama age — felons get a pass as long as they are allies of the president, sort of like the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia. This is the stuff that makes Americans furious, and the Democrats best beware of the whirlwind they may reap. Many more examples of Holder facilitating voter fraud are in Crimes Against the Republic.
