Cruz, Rubio, and Clarity in the GOP race

by Scott Rasmussen  at TownHall:

“Despite the oversized field and non-traditional candidates, the battle for the Republican presidential nomination is starting to shape up in familiar ways. There will be a champion of the establishment wing taking on the champion of the party base to determine the nominee.

One interesting possibility is that this year’s finalists could both be young, articulate and Hispanic. There’s a long road ahead, but it is very reasonable to envision Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz as the last candidates standing.

Among establishment candidates, Rubio almost certainly has enough charisma and eloquence to overcome Jeb Bush’s claim of inevitability. And, other than Bush, it’s hard to find a serious contender among the establishment crowd. Some see Ohio Gov. John Kasich as a possibility, but there is little evidence he has any support beyond a small group of reporters.

As for the outsider field, that is currently dominated by three people who have never held office before: Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. It’s been very healthy for these outsiders to shake things up in the Grand Old Party. Without them, the establishment never would have figured out how unpopular the idea of a third Bush in the White House had become…..”

WHY BIG BANKS LOVE DEMOCRATS…..by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

“Since the financial collapse of 2008, the nation’s largest banks have seen their profits boom, as their share of the market has grown. Reuters reports:

Profits have soared since the global financial crisis at the five biggest U.S. banks with market-making dealing operations, New York Federal Reserve economists said in an article released on Wednesday.

From 2009 to 2014, the combined net income of J.P. Morgan, Citigroup, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley annually averaged $41.73 billion, up from annual average of $25.08 billion from 2002 to 2008, they said.

Meanwhile, community banks are suffering. Why? Because the Democrats’ Dodd-Frank law is killing them, even as it boosts their biggest competitors. ValueWalk headlines: “Dodd-Frank Hurting Community Banks: Harvard Study.”

A recent study from the Harvard Kennedy School takes a closer look at the long-term plight of community banks (defined as banks with less than $10 billion in assets) in the U.S. Authors Marshall Lux and Robert Greene examine the issue using FDIC data to analyze the factors behind the decline in community banking — including over-regulation — and suggest policy alternatives that could help the community banking industry get back on its feet. …

Lux and Greene highlight the growing crisis in the community bank sector. The lending market share of community banks has dropped from above 40% in 1994 to around 20% at the end of 2014. Of note, community banks came out of the financial crisis with a 6% decrease in market share, but since the the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, their share of U.S. commercial banking assets has declined at a rate almost double that between the second quarters of 2006 and 2010.

The decline in community banking has hurt small business:

The authors note: “Particularly troubling is community banks’ declining market share in several key lending markets, their decline in small business lending volume, and the disproportionate losses being realized by particularly small community banks.”

The problem, the Harvard authors conclude, is largely due to poor regulation.

That is, it is poor regulation if you care about small businesses and the economy as a whole. But the Democrats have other priorities: they are corporatists, who want to favor a few big firms that the government can then control. Dodd Frank has been a disaster, but not for the nation’s biggest banks, and not for the Democrat Party.”

Ditsy Chick at MSNBC Charges Ben Carson with “Victim Blaming” for Fighting Back Against Gunmen

Ditsy Chick at MSNBC recommends Ben Carson and others  become her ditsy clone when faced with terror…….a nearly universal tenet among the Obama feminist crowd.

The human male animal  is born by Nature to be a killer and a sexual predator.  The human female animal is born ditsy and otherwise intellectually incurious.    Both human animals  need civilized human training and God-fearing  to become civil to  bare  all of the responsibilities within life to form future generations to continue  civility .   American humans have been losing this war for the past generation or more.

As President Ronald Reagan loudly reminded citizens of his day, it should be remembered that in order for civilization to survive, the duty to civilize the human animal must be renewed with every new birth and generation.

Leftist Americans seem to have paid no attention.

Americans have inherited the corrupt leftist Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama sleaze and dishonesty by forgetting  that basic, overwhelming truth with  the collapse of not only the American family,  but its educational and religious institutions as well.

Today the American family unit  is in a state of severe collapse.  Good is becoming overwhelmed by evil;   truth with dishonesty;  understanding with ignorance, primarily due to acceptance of a new religion, Marxism.    We have produced vacuous automatons  like those who preach their brand of Marxism that the human sexes are equals and therefore the same, from the pews at  MSNBC  to those in today’s Obama White House.


……and while viewing wonder if the ditsy chick is at all aware that Ben Carson is not a ditsy sister chick but a human  guy, and was likely born  a human guy, but  has not yet been feminized or otherwise drugged to abandon his natural  instincts to protect good from evil.


How Did The Democrats Become Favorites of the Rich?…..by T.B. Edsall at the New York Times


by Thomas B. Edsall of the New York Times Opinion Page:

“Voters on both the left and the right often claim that there is no difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties, and of course that isn’t true. There’s a big difference between Elena Kagan and Antonin Scalia, for one thing. But there may be more to this argument than you think.

Democrats now depend as much on affluent voters as on low-income voters. Democrats represent a majority of the richest congressional districts, and the party’s elected officials are more responsive to the policy agenda of the well-to-do than to average voters. The party and its candidates have come to rely on the elite 0.01 percent of the voting age population for a quarter of their financial backing and on large donors for another quarter.

The gulf between the two parties on socially fraught issues like abortion, immigration, same-sex marriage and voting rights remains vast. On economic issues, however, the Democratic Party has inched closer to the policy positions of conservatives, stepping back from championing the needs of working men and women, of the unemployed and of the so-called underclass.

In this respect, the Democratic Party and its elected officials have come to resemble their Republican counterparts far more than the public focus on polarization would lead you to expect. The current popularity of Bernie Sanders and his presidential candidacy notwithstanding, the mainstream of the Democratic Party supports centrist positions ranging from expanded free trade to stricter control of the government budget to time limits on welfare for the poor.

“Both Republicans and many Democrats have experienced an ideological shift toward acceptance of a form of free market capitalism which, among other characteristics, offers less support for government provision of transfers, lower marginal tax rates for those with high incomes, and deregulation of a number of industries,” the political scientists Adam Bonica, Nolan McCarty, Keith Poole and Howard Rosenthal write in a 2014 essay titled “Why Hasn’t Democracy Slowed Rising Inequality?”

Enemy New York Times Reviews Donald Trump’s Lead over the Republican Establishment Candidate List

Donald Trump’s Act Seems to Be Wearing Out Its Welcome


Old Age, God, and American Jews

Kaplan is a Jewish name.   America’s  Jews live in cities, the metropolitan kind where  big business is.

They used to own and manage small businesses.   Early last century they used to write beautiful music expressing their affection for the country where,  at last,  they could live in safety.

American Jews are indoor people.   They write.  They talk.  Many males are moguls in Big Business.   Others are moguls at today’s American universities where Marxism and other leftisms are  taught.  Females write articles.   Some are in the feminist business.

Somewhere in the catacombs of these modern, highly vocal Judaist Marxists so absolute of their own perfections, hide the most wonderful Americans I have ever met either personally or in the broader cultural scene.   Needless to write, Dennis Prager is my favorite among them, both as an American, and as a Jew. He believes in God, too. Likewise are many of my small, struggling company’s clients who actually have a feel for beauty over noise and money, many so old-fashioned as Americans, they too are isolated from the vast majority of their ethnic brother and sisterhoods of the modern American socialist city.

I know nothing about the writer of the following article, Karen Kaplan except she has written the following article which caught my eye.

I do know the Los Angeles Times is a standard leftwing Obamaling network hiring and selling leftism to American citizens. Nearly all of metropolitan America’s newspapers are.

Ms. Kaplan is not aged, in her 80s as I am. She is a reporter, a “contact reporter”, hired to write things to help the Los Angeles Times pay its bills and make a profit. She is valued for her writing skills, not her experiences, the usual fete for reporters of any kind.

IS RETIREMENT HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH? by Karen Kaplan (“Contact” reporter at the Los Angeles Times)

“It’s an intriguing question in light of a new study that finds senior citizens who work are in better health than their counterparts who don’t.

Researchers from the University of Miami and their colleagues examined data on more than 83,000 Americans who participated in the National Health Interview Survey between 1997 and 2011. All of them were at least 65 years old when they were interviewed, and 13% of them were still working part time or full time. The majority of these workers — 61% — held white-collar positions.

Compared to people with white-collar jobs, those who were unemployed or retired were 2.75 times more likely to report their health as “poor” or “fair.” (The other options were “good,” “very good” or “excellent.”) People with blue-collar jobs, service-industry jobs or who worked on farms rated their health as about the same as their white-collar peers.

The survey also rated health using a measure called the Health and Activities Limitation Index, or HALex, which includes factors like whether people need help taking care of themselves or have limitations in the kind of work they can do. The 80% of people with the highest HALex scores were considered to be in good shape, compared with the 20% of people who had the lowest scores……”

Be certain to read the entire article below……and while reading, do wonder if Ms. Kaplan might be confined to her community’s catacombs politically and often therefore, religiously and, if discovered, be thrown to the limitless leftist pile of the “should-have-been-unborns”  to rot.

Of course there is that possibility this Ms. Kaplan isn’t Jewish at all, but a beloved husband might be……which might cause an entire other kind of isolation.


People Murder People, not guns! So, What Percentage of Americans Today Are Savages?

I am now  into my last decade of life.   I was in first grade public school when Pearl Harbor was attacked.  Life at home and neighborhood was safe then.  In school knowledge, obedience, and God-fearing was taught as a foundation for forming tolerant, productive American citizens to protect freedoms and advance the quality of life.

Children had real God-fearing  mothers and dads  then,  caring for their up-bringing.

Today, about 75% of the American people age fifty and younger don’t know what Pearl Harbor suggests, much less which century this suggestion belongs to.  A majority doesn’t know what a perennial is or conifer means.  About half believe a tomato is made at the local super market.

It is likely that even in our Twin Cities’s public schools elementary school children don’t know where Canada is…..and high school students know nothing about the good old Soviet Union.  College is where feminism, Marxism,  and atheism are taught.

The young  prefer self esteem, sex and pot….feeling good about themselves collects  compliments for doing so.  Truth, they are assured, is only a matter of opinion.

Schools in the inner city are filled with street savages and their victims.

And then there is the clever evil savage in the White House devoting his energy, advertising, and performing  his mission   to change America forever…..demoting it from a striving  God-fearing, honest, hard-working inventive  and producing  society devoted to civilized  life of liberty in  pursuit of happiness,  to a common third -world sea of human animal  illiterates devoted obediently  to the  Marxist god of policed equality.

This savage in the White House did not cause the collapse of America.   He and the evil he performs and spreads are representative of the moral, religious,  and educational decay  of our population, sculpting  citizens as well as their  illegal immigrants……the millions and millions of them to be  maneuvered  to help  seize their piece of the American pie  to  insure political power forever  for  Marxist equality for its  feminists, atheists, and racists of all sexes, shapes, and sizes.

The Marxist diversion to order citizens to believe savage guns, not savage  people  are murderers is in conversation in the following article:
