Arctic Outbreak to Bring Coldest Air of the Season to Northeast, Subzero Cold to Midwest

By Jon Erdman The coldest air of the season is poised to plunge into the Northeast this coming Valentine’s Day weekend. This Arctic blast will not only flirt with some daily records, but will also bring subzero cold to parts of the Midwest and reinforce the cold in the Southeast. A sharp southward nosedive of the polar jet stream will help tap an air mass originating from the Canadian Arctica and send it into the eastern half of the country from Friday through Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Cold Outbreak Setup Let’s first break out the timeline of shivering details, then...

How Donald Trump Could Become President

by Peter Morici Convincing victories by political outsiders in New Hampshire demonstrate without doubt most voters are disgusted with both political parties. The electorate will probably make one of them—more likely Donald Trump—the next Commander in Chief. Since 1976, just one candidate from either party has not won in both  Iowa and New Hampshire (Bill Clinton in 1992) and still won his party’s nomination. While history clearly is not determinative, it can hardly be ignored. On the Republican side, Trump won by a compelling margin in the Granite State over Iowa winner Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)—35 to 12 percent—because he did well among… View Article

Twilight of the Gods: New Hampshire Voters Reject Clinton , Bush Dynasties in Epic Defeats

by Ben Shapiro On Tuesday night, the establishment of both parties got hammered. On the Democratic side of the aisle, the most establishment candidate in American history, Hillary Rodham Clinton, got demolished by a 74-year-old loonbag socialist – she’s currently losing by more than 20 points in the state that saved her campaign in 2008, and a state she led by 56 points one year ago. Hillary lost among voters of every age group up to 65 and over; she got cleaned by an 85 percent to 14 percent margin among young voters. She lost with every income bracket except… View Article

Donald Trump And Ted Cruz Driving GOP ‘Realignment’

by Dan Riehl Bloomberg News reporter Joshua Green joined Breitbart News daily host Stephen K. Bannon today to discuss the 2016 elections and also an item he recently penned for Bloomberg News on so called “realignment elections.” The article is an insightful look into the dynamics that very much appear to be impacting the 2016 Republican presidential primary. It’s easy to view this year’s Republican primary as a cult of personality and no more—the rise and fall of a colorful billionaire who stars in the greatest reality show on television. But what’s happening is much broader than Trump and Cruz…. View Article

Liberty Activists And ISIS Will Soon Be Treated As Identical Threats

By Brandon Smith Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants. It was only a matter of time and timing. My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared. Economic uncertainty...

Careful With Those Anti-Corruption Tweets: Twitter Launches Orwellian “Council” to Curb Dissent

By Claire Bernish Twitter announced it will be joining in the pro-censorship campaigns currently sweeping social media under the familiar guise defenders of liberty and free speech love to hate: terrorism. Twitter’s version of the Thought Police, however, sounds somehow even more Orwellian than the original: The Trust & Safety Council — which will, unsurprisingly, “work to develop policies censoring speech on the site,” as the Washington Examinerdescribed. “To ensure people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter, we must provide more tools and policies,” the social media’s statement paradoxically begins. “With hundreds of millions of...

The fight for the right and the rise of Alberta PACs

Don Braid, Calgary Herald More from Don Braid, Calgary Herald Alberta’s right-wing groups may finally be uniting — against each other. Insults are flying and temperatures rising. This is how conservatives eventually merge, over everybody’s dead body. Both formal parties, Wildrose and Progressive Conservatives, are now telling independent merger advocates to butt out of the looming byelection in Calgary-Greenway, the riding that’s been vacant since the death of PC member Manmeet Bhullar last November. The Alberta Prosperity Fund — a self-identified “SuperPac” — wants the parties to agree on a single candidate, perhaps with some kind of runoff between the two party choices to...

Don’t give a damn about the TPP? You’re going to wish it gave a damn about you

Try this at home. Dress up corporate. Stand on a corner with a clipboard. Hover a drone with a video camera nearby. Ask passersby: 1. Who’s in the Super Bowl? 2. Who should be president next year? 3. What was just signed in New Zealand that, if ratified, will let corporations overturn U.S. laws, speed up the destruction of the environment, outsource jobs, encourage slavery, eliminate food safety standards, make medicine cost even more, censor and restrict the internet, impede reform of Wall Street, and make those 20 people who own as much as half the country even richer at...

Mandatory Mental Illness Screening and the Drive to Confiscate Firearms

Government study says half of all Americans suffer from mental illness On Sunday in his weekly column Ron Paul discussed a recommendation by the United States Preventive Services Task Force. The recommendation calls mental health screening of all Americans. “The task force wants to force health insurance companies to pay for the screening. Basic economics, as well as the Obamacare disaster, should have shown this task force that government health insurance mandates harm Americans,” writes Paul. In addition to the economic aspects of the recommendation, Dr. Paul mentions the draconian effect it will have on the Second Amendment and...
