Anonymous Speech IS Free Speech
The decision to publish anonymously was important for two reasons: It let the authors speak with a single voice and, as Madison was already an important voice in shaping the Constitution, allowed the arguments to stand on their own merits. As Federalist “No. 1” explains, “My arguments will be open to all, and may be judged of by all.”
But despite its clear importance to America’s founding and its enshrinement in the First Amendment, the ability of Americans to anonymously advocate ideas they care about is under attack at the state and federal level.
Non-profit organizations such as the NAACP or the National Rifle Association have for decades vigorously partaken in the public policy debate. To keep their doors open, non-profits have generally relied on the support of thousands of members who believe in the organization’s mission. But politicians and bureaucrats in states such Missouri, South Dakota, Washington, and Oregon are risking diminishing that support considerably. Voters in South Dakota and Washington will be asked next week to vote on ballot initiatives requiring supporters’ personal information be reported to the government. Public officials in Missouri and Oregon, meanwhile, are backing legislative measures implementing this free speech-chilling policy. Similar efforts are underway, or will be soon, in other states.
The sad fact is that forced disclosure would open people up to harassment and violent attack. If these laws pass, individuals’ names, home address, contributions, and more will end up in a searchable government website, where anyone could use the information to target their opponents. Ultimately, this could stifle people’s willingness to speak out and support causes they believe in—exactly what TED’s Chris Anderson warned.

7 Days Out Even ABC Has Trump +1 Over Clinton
trong enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton has ebbed since the renewal of the FBI’s email investigation.If you recall the Brexit vote Trump could be leading by even more than that.
While vote preferences have held essentially steady, she’s now a slim point behind Donald Trump -- a first since May -- in the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates.
Forty-six percent of likely voters support Trump in the latest results, with 45 percent for Clinton. Taking it to the decimal for illustrative purposes, a mere .7 of a percentage point divides them. Third-party candidate Gary Johnson has 3 percent, a new low; Jill Stein, 2 percent.
I'll call it a dead heat, last week I thought 8/5 in favor of Clinton.

Jeb Bush and the Gimp Suit
So the snark of the day goes to Kurt Schlichter, but what makes today different form any other day?
What have we learned from this? We can’t answer that unless we get beyond the natural tendency to assume that the problem is that everyone else is wrong: “Gosh, if the voters weren’t so stupid they would have totally fallen in line with our commands and right now we’d be watching Jeb Bush being fitted for a gimp suit by Hillary instead of seeing Trump [checks current polls] uh, cleaning her clock. Wait, what?”Yes indeed the Indians have gone off the reservation that the GOP had so lovingly gave them, fine land they said, plenty of water and trees they said. Game to hunt, good fishing they said.
...In short, did we completely screw up? Nah, it’s clearly everyone else who’s wrong. They’re just too stupid to understand that they need to obediently fall in line. After all, their real interests are actually – and super conveniently – our interests.
Seriously – is that where we are at? Because I’m hearing a lot of such nonsense from people horrified at Trump and, by extension, the GOP voters who nominated him fair and square. Can we really blame them for voting for the one guy who actually paid attention to what they were saying?
Um, yeah. See there is A TREE, it wasn't a total lie lie.

Like Bookends of a Sh*t Sandwich
Here is Barack Obama's very last speech to the DNC as president.
So Barack Obama gave a speech in 2004 that made him president in my opinion, it was that good. This is also a good speech. But that connection only comes through in his campaigns, as President he seldom if ever spoke like that to the people. He never looked that relaxed and confident.
The thing I call him on is this, He said something that America is more liked and respected in the world now than when he took office. That's very debatable. I tend to disagree. It can't be as if every. single. criticism. of the Obama Administration is false now can it.
Also I fear the Democrats may have set themselves up for a big letdown tonight. Hillary will have a tough time following Bill's speech, Biden's speech and Obama's speech without the audience noting she's just not that good.
So expect it to go out with a fizzle there. And balloons of course.
So anyone else thing Obama looked all happy because he knows that now Hillary will be blamed for every singe thing that happened during his tenure, she'll face a long hard campaign, Wiki Leaks, yahda yahda yahda.
Michelle is measuring for new curtains. He walks out scot free.
Update: I'll add the rest of the speeches from last night below the fold. The Biden speech is not half bad. I mean in a strictly speech judging sort of way.
Also Bloomberg can go strait to hell. Yeah the Hillary campaign is gonna help the little guy. Up next Michael Bloomberg gives speech on why the government should raid your house in search of illicit sugar.

Video: Melania Trump's full speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention
Personally given her difficulties and nervousness during the speech, I feel Mrs. Trump passed the test. No major problems, a bit of stumbling over language.
Of course last night was all about evaluating her as a potential First Lady. She will improve, become more comfortable. She'll do.
She was good enough the liberal rags felt the need to attack her for serveral very generic political statements which they feel were "stolen" from Michelle Obama.
Here's one that wasn't stolen from Mooch. "I will never take the freedoms this country offers for granted." Whereas Moochelle hates America. Hates living in a house that slaves built .
So unless Moochelle has copyrighted "Hard Work" and "Dreams" then the left's Muckrakers need to shut it.

Republican Party Scared of Allowing Its Members to Vote
I like how Colorado's Republican party decided "it cost too much" to allow the voters to vote.
Followed closely by Indiana who can't wait ignore the voters and let the party faithful decide what is right for America for the lowly uneducated voters.
So I have an idea, let start calling the Republican Establishment the Republican Politburo.
I mean its pretty much a Communist Front now anyway.
The only ones I see who support such a move are die hard died in the wool Cruz supporters who seem to like overriding the will of the people on a technicality.
Which really seems to only drive home the point, Ted Cruz is a lawyer.
And you know what 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the sea are, don't you?
And I can accept Ted Cruz as President, if that is the will of the voters. The problem is, so far its not the will of the voters and makes the Republican Party look just as crooked as it actually is.
This behavior is exactly why Trump gets to many votes. Because the Republican Party has screwed over the people one too many times. Yet there they go again.

Buchanan: Renegades and Turncoats
The next man on the moon..... won't be Mitt Romney or some sh#t like that.
Trump would launch no new crusades for democracy. He would not oppose Russia bombing ISIS. He would build that wall on the border. He would transfer from U.S. taxpayers to rich allies more of the cost of defending themselves.One thing is for sure, should Trump win the nomination he will have survived the largest sh*t storm in Republicna primary history.
Do not most Americans agree with much of this?
Yet this neocon ultimatum about deserting should the voters nominate Trump testifies eloquently to their loyalty.
With every ex-president and ex-nominee repudiating Trump, and foreign policy elites going rogue, the GOP hierarchy is saying: We will cut Trump dead, just as the Rockefeller-Romney crowd cut Barry Goldwater dead.
This is pure my-way-or-the-highway politics.
But it raises anew the question: Can the establishment stop Trump?

The Worst Thing About The Trump/David Duke Setup
Knowing fill well the history of Trump refusing to run in the Reform Party because of Duke's presence in 2000.
But that Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz never thought twice about joining with the media in the latest political attack. Since the Nevada Caucus the NetRoots on the left have been pushing, building a Trump KKK internet straw man.
Cruz and Rubio had no problem joining the party. Well done, Hlinko well done.
So the only conservative not willing to jump on the Leftaction lies bandwagon was Mike Huckabee.
The problem is everyone see's that every traditional politician is willing to say anything, anything at at all, no matter how dirty to take Trump out.
They'll even ally themselves with the lowest of the low of the left wing guerilla marketing partisans.
I'm not surprised at all by the left....
After all, they've played this card many times. But for the right to pick up this banner and carry it?
Personally I don't care much for Donald Trump as a personality. But he is a qualified candidate. What I'm losing faith in is the Republican Party as a party of principal, of fairness. Of a party better than the Democrats.
That Republican Party is gone. Both alternatives to Trump now squarely siding on a LeftAction talking point lie.
So tell me how I can vote for ANY OF THEM?

Nevada Caucus Results
Voting has begun in the Nevada caucus, my thoughts are there are so few Nevadans and can't they vote earlier in the day. We could wrap this up by 11am Eastern easy.
Update: Sorry I crashed out.
Trump, shocking 45+%.
Trump now up over Cruz 80 to 16. A lead that Cruz could make up in Texas on Tuesday, he'd be momentarily tied with Trump. but then it goes back downhill for Cruz pretty quickly. With Trump leading in Georgia and Tennessee.
Rubio now holds 14 delegates, add in Bush's four and he leads Cruz in the delegate count.

New SPLC Report Trump Greatest Terrorist in America Muslims Mentioned as Victims
If you're shocked that every act of non-Islamic violence were given a motive in the SPLC report yet NONE of the acts of Islamic extremism had a motive mentioned, you don't know SLPC very well.
With is roots in fighting racial segregation in the South the SPLC has been stuck with the leftist narrative every since.
Seeing evil in the Black Hebrews and other "Right Wing" groups while carefully tiptoeing around Islamic Groups.
They do list some Islamic extremists, but never as a group. More in an effort to point out how "rare" Jihadists are.
While it mentions individuals such as Yousef al-Khattab and his association with the Islamic Thinkers Society of NY, that group and others remain missing from the SLPC list of hate groups.
In fact the choice of Islamic Hate Groups is not even listed on their site.
This is not to say that there is no danger from non-Islamic hate groups. But the idea that there are NO Islamic hate groups besides Nation of Islam in America just shows the left leaning direction of SPLC's mission.
While Muslims are the most likely per capita to commit acts of terror in America, SPLC spends a lot of effort to whitewash that with politically correct leftist dogma.
Twitter Manipulates What You See
According to the source, Twitter maintains a ‘whitelist’ of favoured Twitter accounts and a ‘blacklist’ of unfavoured accounts. Accounts on the whitelist are prioritised in search results, even if they’re not the most popular among users. Meanwhile, accounts on the blacklist have their posts hidden from both search results and other users’ timelines.Apparently Twitter dreams if sucking just as bad as Facebook.
Our source was backed up by a senior editor at a major digital publisher, who told Breitbart that Twitter told him it deliberately whitelists and blacklists users. He added that he was afraid of the site’s power, noting that his tweets could disappear from users’ timelines if he got on the wrong side of the company.
Shadowbanning, sometimes known as “Stealth Banning” or “Hell Banning,” is commonly used by online community managers to block content posted by spammers. Instead of banning a user directly (which would alert the spammer to their status, prompting them to create a new account), their content is merely hidden from public view.

Think Bernie Sanders Won The New Hampshire Primary? Think Again
Not if you're a Democrat. When Bernie says the system is corrupt as least as far as the Democratic Party is concerned he's right. Its designed to thwart any interloper.
National Democratic delegate count, Clinton can still afford to be gracious because of the Super Delegate hill in front of Bernie.
Now on the Republican side its much more fair, although losers with a few delegates can give them to whomever they choose. By the end of the process its possible that they might be able to veto a Trump nomination if the margin is close enough and all the losers cast their delegate's votes against Trump. Depends on how far Trump is ahead by the convention and how many delegates the rest of the field can snatch up.

Where's Rusty? Moving to New Hampshire Edition
How pathetic is it when a fat guy at 3 percent in the national polls dismisses you as a loser?Wait it wasn't Shackleford. Whatever.
But this is what the Republican establishment is reduced to in 2016. After all these years of Bushes, Karl Rove, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the collaborators, the RINO brand is kaput. These sellouts can’t buy a thrill — not even Juan Ellis Bush, who’s squandered $50 million so far to go from 12 to 4 percent in the national polls over the last three months.
But the consultants are getting a 15 percent commission on the ad buys.
Fifteen percent of $100 million is … worth it. I’m telling ya, Jeb, you got ’em right where you want ’em now. They’re fading, them other guys.
