Ben Shapiro on Roy Moore: “Of course he needs to go”



Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro hit Fox News’ “Outnumbered” this morning and spoke out against Alabama’s controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore. He said the allegations seem credible, but more importantly he believes Moore hasn’t done enough to refute the claims.

“Of course he needs to go. He has not provided any explanation as to why the allegations are false.”

‘Of Course He Needs to Go’: Ben Shapiro Slams Roy Moore Over ‘Highly Credible’ Sex Allegations | Fox News Insider Shapiro said anyone still considering supporting Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore must ask themselves whether they believe someone with child molestation allegations against him should be sitting in the U.S. Senate.

Two women have accused the GOP nominee for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat of sexually assaulting them when they were underage and he was a district attorney in his thirties back in the 1970s. Moore has denied the allegations, but the stories kept coming last week, including one that he had been banned from a mall for trying to pick up teenage girls.

Socialism, ‘socio-economic rights’ and Net Neutrality




Socialism socio-economic rights and Net Neutrality

Given the Socialist-Left’s proclivity for control and deception, it’s is not surprising that they tend to disguise these tendencies behind deceptive labels [e.g. Affordable Care Act]. The term ‘Net Neutrality’ is no exception, with it’s labeling making it sound like a wonderful idea, while in practice it has the opposite effect, as it with most of the Left’s socialist national agenda.

The Socialist-Left also tends to overly complicate issues to muddy the waters, such as when an MSNBC host became angry as a ‘Net Neutrality’ opponent obliterated his Leftist narratives. [Courtesy of The Right Scoop]. There have been many an article explaining the issue here, here, here and here.  As well as FCC chairman Ajit Pai detailed the issue on Fox and Friends the other day:

FCC chairman Ajit Pai provided a perfect rebuttal to the net neutrality hysteria running rampant from the nation’s Left. He detailed the restoration of the ‘Light-Touch’ approach to the internet that has seen it flourish for 20 years. He also explained that the free-market approach is the best way to ensure innovation and cheaper prices for all.

Rather than trying to delve into the technical nuances of ‘Net Neutrality’ let us take a look at another case of government interference in the marketplace. This hails from the socialist ‘paradise’ of Venezuela as detailed in The Caracas Chronicles where the “Bureau for the Defense of Socio-Economic Rights (Sundde)” escorted by rifle toting Guardia, force business owners to sell their goods at prices determined by the Socialist government of Nicolás Maduro.

As in the case of ‘Net Neutrality’ there are those who applaud such efforts without any consideration of property rights of others or the long-term implications to their Liberty and society in general. They gain the short-term advantage of free or cheap goods and services without considering that this heavy-handed government interference will suppress the free market. The businesses affected will either cut back on investment in their businesses or close altogether. This is all part of the pernicious nature of socialism, where there will always be those who somehow think they can get something for nothing based on the flawed logic that the world owes them a living just because they exist. Those who salivate at the prospect of free stuff have a tendency to forget about the long-term consequences of their actions.

In the case of ‘Net Neutrality’ regulation of private business discourages innovation and advantages the bigger players in the field causing higher prices and fewer choices.

The Bane of Shopkeepers | Caracas Chronicles Saturday, December 2, for the fourth year in a row, the Bureau for the Defense of Socio Economic Rights (Sundde) went on an “inspection” of private businesses. They began in Plaza Venezuela, the Sabana Grande boulevard and, by Monday, they were close to Chacaíto. Escorted by the National Guard (GNB) and the National Police (PNB), they forced shopkeepers to sell their entire merchandise at a 50% discount.

People made lines almost immediately outside stores selling shoes, underwear, trousers, shirts, purses and even food. In less than seven hours, shops were emptied out.

It’s a lethal stab to many shopkeepers, since sales already dropped by 40% right in December, a period that usually has an important cash flow. The reason: exorbitant prices. A pair of sports shoes costs Bs. 800,000 ($7.7, at the current black market rate), far more than the average employee can pay, with the current minimum wage plus food stamps at Bs. 456,507 ($4.42).

The GNB officers stood guard in the shops as if products were food for refugees fleeing a war. With rifles close to their chest, they controlled the crowds and diffused the constant clashes among customers.

Shopkeepers in el Centro are expecting Sundde to drop by at any minute on their nearly empty shops, while employees face an ominous prospect for 2018. The operation in Sabana Grande is common practice for the regime now: they regulate prices, destroying production and restricting free market.

As Chris Matthews’ name hits the sexual misconduct list, NBC stands out as a problem



As Chris Matthews name hits the sexual misconduct list NBC stands out as a problem

This time last year, Fox News held the dubious distinction of having the most high-profile sexual misconduct accusations and lawsuits against them. Now, NBC seems to be the big offenders with Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, and Matt Zimmerman all gone. Chris Matthews has now been named as having allegedly paid off a former staffer for sexual harassment in 1999.

NBC has denied the report, saying the staffer was paid less than the reported $40,000 and that it was part of her severance pay, not a payoff due to the accusation against Matthews.

NBC Paid Chris Matthews Harassment Accuser sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company of others.

My Take

As with all sexual misconduct claims, this one should be believed but verified. 18 years is a long time, but NBC claims to have done an investigation into it and found Matthews has been inappropriate but was not propositioning. As much as I dislike Matthews, the age of the account, the denial by his organization that has been forthright in releasing those hit with credible accusations, and the notion that it was inappropriate without being propositional makes me lean towards not calling for his resignation.

Besides, conservatives are better off when Matthews is representing the other side of the playing field.

Rush Limbaugh on Marco Rubio holding out for child tax credits



Rush Limbaugh on Marco Rubio holding out for child tax credits

On Friday, editor-in-chief JD Rucker said Marco Rubio was holding out for child tax credits to build up his resume for a future presidential run. On the same day, Rush Limbaugh said Rubio was just trying to get attention. Seems like Rubio’s push, which got him the changes he needed in order to vote for the bill, didn’t have motives that were as hard to discern as the Florida Senator hoped.

Here’s what Limbaugh had to say about Rubio on his Friday show:

“It’s just an opportunity now to have attention called to himself, particularly caring about poor kids. I’m not being critical. I’m telling you how this works.”

We Wake Up Every Morning and Face a Mountain of Ignorance Bork had a story about watching the Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill hearings at the faculty lounge at Yale. And there was a colleague of his in there, a friend, people think it might have been Irving Kristol, but it doesn’t matter who it was. So Bork is sitting there watching the Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill hearings, and a guy walks up to him, “What do you think you’re looking at, Judge? What are you are witnessing here?”
