"This is how we're going to kill your wife." That's the message Rep. Tom Garrett (R-Va.) said he received in a series of recent threats that targeted him, his family and even, at one point, his dog. And it's the reason, he said, that his town hall here in this sleepy Virginia community on Tuesday night was ringed by law enforcement.   When Garrett took the stage at Eastlake Community Church, the walls in the 300-seat room were lined with security — some uniformed and some in...

The ten year mark is important because it is the far side of the Trump budget effects. And is the period in which it is estimated 7.5 million people who work in retail will lose their jobs to automation.  We are creeping toward dystopia.  “If you’re on food stamps and you’re able-bodied, we need you to go to work.

Outgoing California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton performed the only action left to an impotent, leftist, cadre head in a lawful society. He shouted. He likely would’ve preferred some kind of violent action, but instead he simply advocated for one. Specifically, he invited the listening-impaired translators onto the stage Saturday at the California’s Democratic Party convention in Sacramento to “thank them,” and then, as they were flashing their hands in applause for his service...

Republicans going home to talk to their constituents are facing violence and death threats, with some lawmakers upping security at town hall events — a consequence of a culture of violence being fostered by left-wing activists and their allies in the liberal media. In the lead up to the passage of ObamaCare in 2010, conservatives were vocal at town halls and other forums in their opposition to the law. Yet, despite a great deal of speculation and fearmongering by the media, town hall events...

Latest By:  @s, 5 hours ago

Creating a single-payer health care system in California would cost $400 billion a year — including $200 billion in new tax revenue, according to an analysis of legislation released Monday by the Senate Appropriations Committee.  The projected cost far surpasses the annual state budget of $180 billion, and skeptics of the bill say the price tag is “a nonstarter.”  Half of the $400 billion would come from existing federal, state and local spending on health care. An additional $200...
