Hillary Clinton has laid out her game plan for winning back the White House for herself and her husband next year. Let's hope Republicans were paying attention.
She apparently decided it won't be enough to rely on the 66 million people who voted twice for Barack Obama, many of whom are disillusioned by the failure of "hope and change." Obama promised an end to wars in the Middle East, a more prosperous economy for the average American and more harmonious race relations, but all three problems have only gotten worse.

Seeing as Clinton won't have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his unlikely double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people who didn't vote for Obama. That was the gist of her speech in Houston last week, which her friends at MSNBC called a "far-reaching vision for expanding access to the ballot box."

Who are the new voters to whom Clinton wants to give "access to the ballot box"? They include felons and noncitizens, along with anyone who can't prove identity, citizenship or residence within the voting precinct.

She also plans to harvest millions of new votes by expanding the dangerous practices of same-day registration and early voting, which enable Democrats to badger, berate, bribe or bamboozle reluctant low-information voters to the polls. Democratic Party and union workers can identify reluctant voters and harass them until the party worker verifies that they have actually cast their ballots.

This week, the Supreme Court passed up an opportunity to get the government out of the bedroom. Counterintuitively, the case involved an ordinance adopted by the famously tolerant and progressive city of San Francisco eight years ago.

The puzzle is solved when you learn that the ordinance deals with guns, tools for exercising a constitutional right that is decidedly unfashionable in the City by the Bay. By declining to hear the case, the Supreme Court -- which in 2010 affirmed that the Second Amendment binds states and cities, as well as the federal government -- undermined that principle, suggesting that the right of armed self-defense is constrained by local sensibilities.

San Francisco's ordinance requires that handguns kept at home be "stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock" except when they are being carried. As the six residents challenging the ordinance pointed out in their petition asking the Supreme Court to consider the case, that requirement means "law-abiding individuals must render their handguns inoperable or inaccessible precisely when they are needed most, whenever they are not physically carrying them on their persons -- including when they are asleep in the dark of night."

In District of Columbia v. Heller, the 2008 decision recognizing that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, the court overturned a similar restriction in the nation's capital. Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia said the District's "prohibition against rendering any lawful firearm in the home operable for the purpose of immediate self-defense" violated the Second Amendment.

Court: U.S. passports must say ‘Jerusalem’ not ‘Israel’

The Obama Supreme Court, fresh on the heels of giving a stealth jihad victory to Hamas-CAIR and the hijabi who sued Abercrombie & Fitch, panders yet again to the forces of the genocidal jihad.

“Court: U.S. passports must say ‘Jerusalem’ not ‘Israel,'” by Richard Wolf, USA TODAY, June 8, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court declined Monday to insert itself into the middle of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by second-guessing U.S. policy on Jerusalem.
Ruling just a few months after a feud between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the justices refused to allow Americans born in Jerusalem to have their passports changed to reflect Israel as...

At the G-7 Summit, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moonbat blames ISIS, Boko Haram, and ‘Islamophobia’ as the root causes for ‘violent extremism,’ better known as Islamic terrorism

Bare Naked Islam


Moonbat’s ‘politically correct’ comments have been edited in red for clarity and accuracy: Moonbat: “I am increasingly concerned by the spread of violent extremist Islamic terrorist groups and the malicious and hateful Islamic ideologies that are fueling Muslim violence and terrorism around the world.”


"AND I AM AN IDIOT"“…I AM AN IDIOT”  From the deadly ideologies of ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq & Syria] and Boko Haram, to ‘Islamophobia,’ (the result of  intolerance and hatred inherent in Islam) this wave of intolerance and hatred is a serious threat to peace, development, human rights and humanitarian action.  The two most pressing issues we need to address are the underlying contexts and drivers of violent (Islamic) ideologies and the main threats that have emerged, such as foreign Muslim terrorist fighters.

During the last 15 years, most counter-Islamic terrorism efforts have been reactive, focusing largely on military and security measures.  This approach has often generated negative unintended consequences, further radicalizing disenfranchised Muslim communities.
