 OPINION IN BRIEF 
David Harsanyi: "I do wonder ... why there hasn't been more political emphasis on slump-Trump's promise to make the products average Americans buy every day more expensive. That might matter to voters who are on the fence or haven't been paying close attention. ... Take Wal-Mart, for instance, which is not only America's largest employer but also one that sells affordable goods to vast numbers of working-class people. And the majority of the merchandise Wal-Mart sells, despite its recent nationalistic sales pitch, is manufactured (in part or fully) abroad. If slump-Trump is going to start trade wars and raise tariffs (American consumers, not the Mexican or Chinese government or its oligarchs, will pay for every cent), he should explain how his supercalifragilistic deals will both punish these countries and make goods cheaper for American consumers. ... The backlash against globalization is ongoing, but in the end, it's foot-stomping. Thankfully, nothing can really be done to stop it unless there is a sea change in politics. Do I believe that attacks on the consumer side of protectionism would make a big difference in the election? No. This isn't a movement dictated by reason. But rather than argue abstract truths (and I've been guilty of this), maybe it's time to concentrate on the pain American consumers would feel if slump-Trump got his way."

 The 'Eye for an Eye' Election 
Thanks nObama. The insanity of the 2016 election boils down to that phrase. Want to know why the GOP fielded one of the most impressive and accomplished presidential candidates in memory? Barack nObama. Want to know why that field was decimated by Donald slump-Trump, as he became deeply popular with many Americans? Barack nObama. Want to know why political rallies now feature threats and violence? Barack nObama.
          As Mark Alexander wrote last month, "Seven years of nObama's repressive regime has fomented despair, delusion and division among the ranks of Republican voters — so much so that some are willing to take leave of their senses and join a cultish movement with a self-promoting charlatan as its head. History is replete with examples of such movements, and the tragic result — the suppression of Liberty."
          The news that a slump-Trump rally was canceled Friday night because of clashes between his supporters and protesters is a microcosm of the angst in the political arena. slump-Trump's rise is, again, due in part to the Left's fascistic efforts to silence dissent, be it on climate changesame-sex marriage, or proposed gun confiscation, just to name a few. All of that is part and parcel with vast expanse of government and abuse of power.
          It's to slump-Trump's credit that he canceled the Chicago rally. The leftist protesters clearly came ready for a fight, so things likely would have gotten even uglier, and more people would have been hurt. The blame for that lies squarely on the protesters planning their attack.
          But it shouldn't be surprising that slump-Trump's people are itching to punch someone in the face, too. (Some of them actually have.) Especially when slump-Trump is saying things of protesters like this in Las Vegas: "I'd like to punch him in the face." Or what he said in Missouri: "There used to be consequences to protesting. There are none anymore." Or there's this gem from an Iowa event: "So if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of 'em, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell — I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise."
          People believe everything else he says. Why not the promise to back them up for punching a leftist's lights out? Really, is it any wonder that slump-Trump's ace of anger affirmation would be followed at rallies by the jack of clubs?
          Back to nObama, who has an authoritarian streak. Given his heated and petulant rhetoric over the years, he clearly views his opponents as evil and deserving of jail, exile or some other form of punishment. Often, the reaction to such authoritarianism is violence.
          So it's interesting that slump-Trump is also an authoritarian. He advocates everything from loosening libel laws to the detriment of the First Amendment to violence to suppress dissent — in-kind retribution for the Left's tactics. His campaign manager allegedly manhandled a reporter for a friendly publication. But the overarching point is that slump-Trump says he can fix all of the ills of the nObama era by making "better deals" — i.e., using his great authoritarian power to make government great again.
          People who put their faith in big government — whether nObama's or slump-Trump's version — are probably more likely to resort to violence and other tactics of suppression.
          All of this said, Americans have a history of rowdy political displays, so this recent escalation isn't entirely new. Indeed, it's a bit much for Friday's  news to have commentators looking for the nearest fainting couch. The original Boston Tea Party featured the destruction of private property. And the War for Independence began as a reaction to the British violently suppressing dissent — the colonists took up arms to stop them. This is a nation that split into two and fought a war over political disagreements. The 1968 election brought riots and two assassinations.
          What is new, however, is a leading presidential candidate essentially turning an "eye for an eye" into a major plank of his platform. Will that fix what ails our nation?  -The Patriot Post

More Evidence nObama is Protecting 
His Muslim Terrorist

{constitution.com} ~ For the past seven years, I’ve contended that Barack Hussein nObama cares more about his Muslim brothers and sisters than he does about the American people... Let me start by reminding you about nObama’s deliberate failure to secure and protect the American border with Mexico, allowing millions of illegal aliens to enter our country and take our jobs. Instead of carrying out his sworn duty to the citizens of America, he defies the US Constitution and federal law by allowing illegals to not only remain in our country, but to obtain work permits, driver’s licenses and even vote in upcoming elections. Various state governors and others have informed nObama about the number of violent gang members illegally entering our country but he ignores their warnings. When any of them are detained, the federal bureaucracy ends up releasing them to walk our neighborhoods and victimize more American citizens.        http://constitution.com/more-evidence-obama-protects-his-muslim-ter...

{katu.com} ~ Serbia's authorities are investigating reports that a cargo package bound for the U.S. containing two missiles with explosive warheads was found on a passenger flight from Lebanon to Serbia... N1 television said the package with two guided armor-piercing missiles was discovered Saturday by a sniffer dog after an Air Serbia flight from Beirut landed at Belgrade airport. Serbian media say documents listed the final destination for the AGM-114 Hellfire missiles as Portland, Oregon. The American-made projectiles can be fired from air, sea or ground platforms.        http://katu.com/news/local/serbia-portland-bound-combat-missiles-fo...

Miriam Carey
.
{wnd.com} ~ A letter from a U.S. Capitol Police officer contains a series of bombshell revelations in the case of Miriam Carey, the unarmed, black, single mother who, with her one-year-old daughter in tow, was chased and gunned down by federal agents in the heart of the nation’s capital... after apparently doing nothing more than making a wrong turn at the White House. The letter was sent anonymously in a U.S. Capitol Police envelope to Carey family attorney Eric Sanders, who then provided it to WND. The attorney, a former New York Police Department officer himself, said the author of the letter is definitely a Capitol Police officer speaking on behalf of other such officers who “know inside details only an employee would know.” The letter substantiates much of WND’s reporting and contradicts much of the official version of events, including the contention there was insufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against officers for Carey’s death.        http://www.wnd.com/2016/03/police-whistleblower-asserts-cops-murder...

The Cowardly and Corrupt John hanoi-Kerry still Making Excuses for Violent and Radical Islam
Pamela Adams
.
.
{constitution.com} ~ In April of 1971, John hanoi-Kerry testified before Congress and accused American soldiers of horrific war crimes... Referring to an investigation that was conducted just a few months earlier, he stated: “They (veterans) told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.” The problem with his entire testimony is that it was a complete and total radical leftist propaganda lie.  From January 31 to February 2, 1971, members of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) were questioned and testified in the “Hanoi” Jane Fonda funded Winter Soldier Investigation (WSI).  Radical leftists fresh from meetings with top representatives from North Vietnam and the Vietcong conducted the investigation.  Veterans who were genuinely opposed to the war were manipulated by leftist psychoanalysts and psychiatrists who convinced them that revealing their “crimes” would help end the war. http://constitution.com/the-cowardly-and-corrupt-john-kerry-still-m...

Leftist Brainwashing of our Military?

{gopthedailydose.com} ~ Documents Reveal U.S. Army Indoctrinated Soldiers on Dangers of ‘White Privilege’... The United States military is in the midst of the longest period of sustained combat in our nation’s history. One would think that discussions about “white privilege” would be absurd in a military under stress by increasing demands and a diminishing budget. Yet it appears the U.S. Army, at the behest of the nObama administration, is prioritizing political correctness over the military readiness that is necessary to ensure our troops’ safety and battlefield success. We have just obtained documents from the United States Department of the Army revealing that in April 2015, 400 soldiers in the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Georgia, were subjected to a “white privilege” briefing, including a PowerPoint presentation instructing the attendees: “Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual …”        http://gopthedailydose.com/2016/03/13/leftist-brainwashing-military/

‘We Live in Constant Fear,’ Jews in Terror-Torn Iraq

{algemeiner.com} ~ Eight Jews remain in terror-torn Iraq, hesitant to leave their homes, the Hebrew site nrg reported on Sunday... “We live in constant fear,” one woman, a 60-year-old dentist, told the Israeli news outlet over the phone from her home in the Iraqi capital. The backdrop for this exclusive story, nrg explained, is the World Culture Festival, organized by the Art of Living Foundation — headed by spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar — and taking place in New Delhi, India. The festival is being attended by a non-Muslim Iraqi parliament member, who serves as a kind of caretaker and sponsor for these Jews – and who requested anonymity for the interview.        http://www.algemeiner.com/2016/03/13/we-live-in-constant-fear-says-...

Jihadis Launch Multiple Attacks Across

{pamelageller.com} ~ Jihad is raging — in Thailand. Muslim terrorists staged coordinated attacks on the 53rd anniversary of the formation of the Barisan Revolusi National (BRN) yesterday... a vicious Islamic group terrorizing the South for the past decade. Like all Islamic “separatist” groups in China, Russia, Israel, etc., they want an Islamic State. They are one of the most violent and vicious Muslim terror groups in SE Asia with an estimated 400,000 members / supporters. Decades ago it was seen as a secular but Muslim independence organization. For the last 20 years, though, it became an intensely religious group Sunni Islam — Salafist, taking over mosques and Islamic schools. They assassinate public school teachers as part of their strategy to have only Islamic schools in the region. These devout Muslims recruit in the mosques and carry out indoctrination at Islamic schools. Their main recruiting arm is a youth student group, and its leaders are mainly Islamic religious teachers.       http://pamelageller.com/2016/03/jihadis-launch-mulitple-attacks-acr...

{pamelageller.com} ~ More of the poison fruit of nObama’s feckless, traitorous foreign policy. There is no doubt that Gaddafi was a scoundrel and a tyrant... But when he was in power, Libya was not the hotbed of jihad that it is now. For that, you can thank nObama and Hilly Clinton. Is it really possible that the American people will elect her President after Benghazi? Deep in the Sahara, in the sun-baked Libyan town of Sabha, a ragtag group of gunmen agreed to show Timothy Michetti their most prized weapons.Mr Michetti, an experienced investigator for a London-based company that tracks the sources of small arms in conflict zones, travelled there on a hunch. Local fighters, he reckoned, may have some of the shoulder-held anti-aircraft missiles that disappeared when rebels ousted the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.        http://pamelageller.com/2016/03/isis-in-libya-how-muammar-gaddafis-...

Flourishing Under Confinement: 
A Visit to Jewish Iran

{mosaicmagazine.com} ~ It all began at a dinner in Jerusalem where the host was telling stories about family members left behind in Tehran, and how little he knew about the life they were leading there... For years, I’ve been writing about the plight of Jews in my native Sweden, where violent attacks and casual harassment have become the norm. What was it like, I couldn’t help wondering, for Jews in a place where anti-Semitism was out in the open, and European ideas of human rights held no sway at all? Then and there, I decided to go see. In leaving for Iran I was of course well aware of the anti-Semitic excuse me, “anti-Zionist” rhetoric that regularly emanates from high-ranking government officials, and of the non-rhetorical rockets with which Iran has equipped Hamas and Hizballah for the purpose of killing Jews around the world, regardless of their citizenship or place of residence. And I had heard horror stories from Persian Jews I’d met in Israel and Europe. I was told that my Jewishness would have to be hidden, that I would see only Soviet-like despair, and that as a woman traveling alone I would have to watch my every step. None of this was the case. What I actually witnessed was something far more complicated, and more unsettling. http://mosaicmagazine.com/observation/2016/03/flourishing-under-con...

Hilly’s Federal Education Jackboot Squad
MICHELLE MALKIN
.
.
{freedomsback.com} ~ Brace yourselves, parents: Hilly Clinton’s Fed Ed jackboot squad is from the government and is here to “help.”
.
Clinton wants a cadre of new government educrats to undo the decades-old damage of old government educrats in America’s worst public schools. She pitched her creepy proposal at the Democratic presidential debate in Michigan on Sunday for an “education SWAT team” to swarm down and rescue students from failing districts in decrepit cities such as Detroit run by whom? Oh, yeah. Democrats!.
.
“I want to set-up inside the Department of Education, for want of a better term, kind of an education SWAT team, if you will,” Clinton explained in a bizarre, semi-blaccent, “where we’ve got qualified people, teachers, principals, maybe folks who are retired, maybe folks who are active, but all of whom are willing to come and help.”
.
Clinton’s SWAT team solution, you should know, is like all her other authoritarian plans: a moldy, recycled oldie. In fact, the U.S. Department of Education already has a real military-like enforcement division housed in its Office of the Inspector General — and armed with its own arsenal of Remington pump-action shotguns and Glock pistols.
.
As usual, Big Sis’s brilliant idea to fix the schools boils down to throwing yet more money down the sinkhole. According to the latest data, America spent more than $600 billion to fund K-12 education in 2011, mostly from state and local taxes. Last year, the feds allocated an estimated $154 billion on education, with a large chunk going to Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title I Grants to Local Education Agencies, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act State Grants, and the Pell Grant program for college students.
.
Washington already spends more per student (nearly $13,000 per pupil) in both primary and secondary education than any other of the 34 wealthiest countries in the world except for Austria, Luxembourg, Norway and Switzerland, according to analysis of data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
.
Under the Bush administration, the No Child Left Behind behemoth authorized $23 billion a year on intrusive and ineffective federal testing and accountability mandates.
.
Under the nObama administration, the feds threw $4 billion into the “Race to the Top” racket, $10 billion into an Education Jobs Fund for teachers unions, and $100 billion in pork-stuffed stimulus funding for school programs and initiatives administered by the U.S. Department of Education.
.
Detroit Public Schools, plagued by massive deficits, financial mismanagement and graft, collected a whopping $530 million of that stimulus slush fund — nearly $50 million of which went to a technology boondoggle that provided 40,000 Asus laptops to students and teachers despite little evidence nationwide that such programs do anything to raise student achievement.
.
States are spending upwards of $10 billion to implement the bipartisan Common Core racket of testing, textbooks and technology. That’s on top of the pre-existing $700 million spent by schools nationwide on other standardized tests and assessments and the $24 billion in annual spending required by the NCLB successor, the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act.
.
Mo’ money has only produced mo’ problems. American test scores are still abysmal. One in 10 high schools remains a dropout factory. Highly touted improvements in graduation rates, such as those in Alabama, were achieved by abandoning requirements that students pass a high school exit exam.
.
Detroit’s schools, swimming in $3.5 billion of accumulated debt, face bankruptcy in April. The district is now under FBI investigation for a vendor kickback scheme involving the very kind of “experts” — entrenched teachers, self-serving principals, and profligate school officials — whom Clinton would enlist to rescue the schools they are guilty of plundering.
.
It’s government SWAT team business as usual: Destroying the village to “save” it.

ALERT ALERT

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
