    The incredibly resourceful and brilliant unpaid blogger known only as “sundance” at TheConservativeTreehouse.com is doing it again. Just as she (or he) did in the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases, sundance is putting the professional media journalists to shame by methodically analyzing and exposing key details of the recent, still-smoldering Jessica Chambers murder caper in rural Panola County, Mississippi, apparently well before ordinary reporters or even police investigators have even begun to rub the sleep from their eyes. This time, probing deeply into the very disturbing mystery surrounding the gruesome torture and burning death last week of the blonde,...

    Although [Jonathan] Gruber has sought to play down his remarks, the danger to the law from the unclear language is still very real: The section in question mentions exchanges "established by the state," but not the federal government. One former staffer involved in drafting the legislation attributes the vague wording to a rushed process in the Senate: "When there'’s a rapid process, sometimes things aren't worded as precisely as you might like when you have more time. … I see it more as, you didn't find all your cross-references." That explanation, however, makes Michael Carvin laugh out loud. "That’s another...

    The first Horseman of the Apocalypse is known as Pestilence. He is bringer of the Plague. He is associated with a White Horse (change one letter and you get "White House"). From Revelation 6:11 - "And white robes were given unto every one of them [Hazmat suits?]; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season [quarantine period?]"

    On Sundays, our parish sings the Beatitudes, from the Sermon on the Mount. But this time, the words reached through the millennia to highlight the headlines of today: wars, beheadings, and the jihadist genocides of Christians and people of other faiths. Stories I wrote during the past couple of months seemed to attach themselves to a beatitude (https://bible.org/seriespage/beatitudes-matthew-51-12), or blessing: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of their faith, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Later on, I...

    For more than four months Russia, and its leader Vladimir Putin, have watched patiently, and in some cases with humor, as the United States implemented negligible economic sanctions against the Eurasian power in response for their support of rebels involved in the Ukrainian conflict. However, Putin's days of sitting idly by may be over as on Aug. 5 the Russian President ordered a two-pronged attack against the U.S., Ukraine, and any European ally who chooses to become involved by mustering troops and munitions on the Ukrainian border, and issuing economic sanctions of their own that will be much stronger and...

    American Uncensored News Network ^ | April 24, 2014 | Jonathon Moseley
    The GOP needs to adopt one powerful reform: Stop taking “advice” from people who want Republicans to lose. Almost every problem, dynamic, and force within the Republican Party is currently driven (sometimes in obscure ways) by the naïve assumption that the “advice” freely offered by the GOP’s enemies is sound wisdom the GOP should depend upon. Republican insiders fight any nominee or action which the GOP’s enemies criticize. Insiders think that their enemies’ “advice” shows which candidate will have broad appeal. So if liberal organizations, the liberal news media, or Democrats say a candidate is a bad choice or a...

    NBC’s Ryan Nobles recently interviewed Eric Cantor, asking him to respond to charges made by primary opponent Dave Brat that Cantor was engaging in political tactics meant to silence conservatives. Cantor responded with typical talking points, without answering the question, or mentioning Brat by name. That’s how he rolls. Cantor’s history is one of never acknowledging his conservative opponents until forced to do so. Debate with lesser souls? That would require defending his record. Cantor won’t risk opening that up for attack, preferring to run on name ID and consultant driven cliché. Nobles: He’s been pretty critical of you, on...

    via TCOT Report: "Grassroots Volunteers Challenge 180 ‘Missing’ Voters in North Carolina" Friday, representatives from the Voter Integrity Project and Asheville Tea Party announced they filed over 180 challenges to the registrations of so-called ‘inactive voters’ in Buncombe County, NC. The challenges trigger a compulsory investigation into the legitimacy of each voter. Law requires that at the conclusion of the investigation, the Board of Elections members vote to keep or clear that individual from the registered voter rolls. The two groups first teamed up when the Asheville Tea Party hosted a Voter Integrity Boot Camp in October 2013. Several volunteers...

The advantages held by Republicans today will be distant memories next November. Nevertheless, the vicious uncalled-for attacks on conservatives by John Boehner, Peter King, John McCain, and their like will not be forgotten. They will become rallying cries to fight against the Republican Party next year. Those who are tempted to think that since conservatives have nowhere...

    Today the Department of Health and Human Services released premium data on the 36 federal exchanges. The data largely confirms what was found in our recent study, “ObamaCare Exchanges: Just Because You Are Eligible For A Subsidy Doesn’t Mean You Will Qualify.” First, our study found that many “Young Invincibles”—those ages 18-34—will not be receiving a subsidy for their insurance from the exchange despite having incomes below 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL) or $45,960 annually. Second, we found that in most states subsidies will extend up to 400% FPL for those age 52 and older. -SNIP-See detailed analysis...

This explains the purpose of this web site. I believe I can help Romney get elected. I call it the “Nevins Small Business Pledge”. I, as a small business owner, am pledging to create a new...

    A University of Southern Mississippi (USM) professor is demanding the faculty Senate reevaluate the university’s support for "organizations that are anti-gay" including the popular fast-food chain Chick-fil-A."We have a nondiscrimination policy at USM that includes sexual orientation and so if we have that policy, I think to live up to that, then we should not be doing anything to support organizations that are anti-gay," associate political science Professor Kate Greene told local NBC affiliate WDAM Channel 3, regarding the Chick-fil-A controversy.Greene, whose website says she is the “second most senior member” of the political science department, has also requested the...

    Although the ACLU strongly supports same-sex marriage, a senior attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois warned that if Chicago bans Chick-fil-A over the religious views of its management, it will be engaging in "viewpoint discrimination," Fox News reported Thursday. “The government can regulate discrimination in employment or against customers, but what the government cannot do is to punish someone for their words,” said ACLU senior attorney Adam Schwartz. “When an alderman refuses to allow a business to open because its owner has expressed a viewpoint the government disagrees with, the government is practicing viewpoint discrimination,” he added....

    First Amendment: The politically incorrect personal beliefs of a food-chain owner provides politicians nationwide an opportunity to rail against nonexistent discrimination. Want fries with that righteous indignation? Chicago Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno announced this week that he will block Chick-fil-A's effort to build a store in his trendy ward after hearing that Chick-fil-A's president, Dan Cathy, had stated in an interview that he believed in marriage as between one man and one woman. Cathy was quoted July 16 in the Baptist Press saying he was "guilty as charged" for supporting "the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a...

  • Florida Tells Holder to Blow it Out His A _ S

    (Business Insider) — Florida state officials will continue their quest to purge purportedly ineligible people from voter-registration rolls, a representative of Secretary of State Ken Detzner said Saturday, in defiance of objections from the U.S. Justice Department and county officials who say the policy violates two federal voting laws. On Thursday, T. Christian Herren Jr., the head of the Justice Department’s voting section, said the effort to remove voters appears to violate the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which outlaws discriminatory voting practices that disenfranchise minorities. On a list of almost 2,700 voters the state suspects are noncitizens, blacks and Latinos...

    It is terrible that conservatives are out there distorting the records of each candidate. Or worse passing along wrong information without checking facts. All of them have qualifications and disqualifications. But can we get away from what they say they will do and compare what they actually did when they were afforded governing power? I was talking to a nationally published conservative author and speaker today who had absolutely no clue that Newt Gingrich gave the “keynote” rebuttal AGAINST Al Gore on Cap and Trade legislation. This is a travesty not just of conservative media, but those we surround ourselves...
  • How will President Obama respond this year to Chairman Ryan's lower deficits and debt?

    This is the third in a three part post. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s newly released budget poses an identical strategic challenge to the President as last year. I recommend you watch the President carefully this week to see whether and how he responds. Key strategic point: Last year President Obama’s fiscal strategy was to claim to match Republicans on deficit and debt reduction, then point out that he did so in a way that he claimed better fit the priorities of most Americans. The difference, the President wanted to claim, was not in deficits or debt, but in...

    This is the second in a three part post. You will see why I am focusing on displaying proposed results rather than proposed changes. I hope that today’s post drives home my point about the benefits of apples-to-apples comparisons of results without the distraction of the baseline/increase/decrease squabbling. •The Ryan budget proposes a 5% deficit for FY13, lower than the President’s proposed 6.1% deficit for that same year. •Chairman Ryan’s proposed deficits are lower than the President’s proposed deficits in each year of the next ten. The gap widens over time to a maximum of two percentage points in 2021....
