    On Monday, 28 July, a robbery was attempted at a Chesapeake, Virgina Exxon station.      It wasn't the first time.   The reporter stated that it was the second robbery at the station this month.   The robber displayed "a dark colored handgun".   As the robber was leaving the store, the clerk fired several shots. At first, it was not clear if any of the shots had connected.  Then, 35 minutes after the holdup,  19 year old Terry Graves checked into Maryview Hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.   His picture is shown above.  From wavy.com:  Investigators confirmed...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Fusion TV's Jorge Ramos that part of the reason Hamas hides rockets in schools and civilian areas is "Gaza is small." "I'm not a military planner but Hamas puts it's missiles, it's rockets in civilian areas, part of it is Gaza is pretty small and its densely populated," she said as neglecting the question of whether or not Hamas should have rockets in area to begin with.

    The word stunned might best describe how U.S. citizens, particularly blacks, felt after hearing that a six-member jury, following two days of deliberation in a Florida courthouse last July, found George Zimmerman not guilty in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. One year later, with increased cases in which defendants have used the “stand your ground” law to avoid prosecution, civil rights leaders and activists have ramped up efforts to challenge a criminal justice system that often treats blacks and women as second-class citizens. “Blacks seeking justice must continue with protests, pressure and patience,” said Benjamin Crump, the civil...

    Coach is Right ^ | 7/30/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Two published studies coming from locations as diverse as Montana and Duke University have reinforced conservatives’ intuitive understanding that socialists and Democrats–being members of a Party dedicated to socialism–are likely to be cheaters. With its disdain for rules, honesty and ethics, socialism finds a home in the Democrat Party. Many of its most prominent members are regularly elected and re-elected by voter fraud and have been tried and convicted of serious crimes. It is not uncommon for those who have worked in political campaigns at any level of government to experience some form of Democrat cheating. It will start with...

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | July 30, 2014 | Noah Remnick, Intern, Class of '15, Yale University
    A great paradox of Obama’s America is that racism has been so thoroughly condemned that it only rarely receives public /*0attention. To some extent, the election of a black president relaxed what remained of our national focus on race matters, it triggered a prolonged self-congratulation and a deceptive notion that we had reached an ending, a resolution. Obama himself is, of course, a sophisticated, and very particular, thinker about race on a number of levels -- as a child of a mixed marriage, he saw race from the inside out and the outside in; as a local politician, he ran...

Racist violence in order to create even more division has begun. . . by design. Barack Obama is at the center of the blame. He understands that culture is politics, division creates crisis, and during times of crisis the government can do things that the citizens would not normally allow them to do.

He’s the Republican front runner going into the August GOP primary. Should he win he’ll face Pelosi/Obama clone Patrick Murphy in November. “Wages are stagnant, grocery prices too high,” says Domino. “Get rid of Obamacare, build the Keystone Pipeline,” and ease up on all of Obama’s big government regulations. These are initiatives the Jupiter, Florida businessman favors. He told campaign supporters at a fundraiser held recently at a popular Mexican themed restaurant that America is governed by the...

    Salon claims, invoking “science”, that conservatives suffer “mass hysteria” and “permanent paranoia", because conservative brains are wired differently.  I’m not making this stuff up, folks. Conservative fears of nonexistent or overblown boogeymen — Saddam’s WMD, Shariah law, voter fraud, Obama’s radical anti-colonial mind-set, Benghazi, etc. — make it hard not to see conservatism’s prudent risk avoidance as having morphed into a state of near permanent paranoia, especially fueled by recurrent “moral panics,” a sociological phenomenon in which a group of “social entrepreneurs” whips up hysterical fears over a group of relatively powerless “folk devils” who are supposedly threatening the...

    A number of blogs have reported how Obama yelled at Binyamin Netanyahu on the phone on Sunday.  I have to question why Obama is so upset at Israel’s current operation to eliminate terror tunnels, when he usually stays so calm. When he speaks with world leaders like Vladimir Putin, French PM Hollande, and British PM David Cameron, Obama doesn’t yell.  And when those leaders speak with Netanyahu, they don’t presume to yell at him.  Only Barack Hussein Obama yells at Netanyahu, scolding him like a schoolmaster to a student. What possible motivation could Obama have? Back in 2008, candidate then-Senator Obama had lots of...

They target Russia's energy, arms, and finance sectors. – Business Insider Interesting: Barry has targeted the same 3 sectors in America. Since he’s crippled our economy, maybe he thought this would reestablish equilibrium in the world. And if you disagree, you’re probably a racist.Posted from: Michelle Obama’s Mirror 
  • Early Returns On Michigan As a Right-to-Work State: Incomes Rising

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/30/2014 | Tom Gantert
    When Michigan passed right-to-work in December of 2012, critics were quick to predict that workers’ compensation would plummet. Union officials derided it as “right-to-work for less.” Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer, D-East Lansing, said that right-to-work legislation would lower employee wages. But the early returns show that hasn’t happened. Michigan’s per-capita personal income increased from $38,291 in 2012 (before right-to-work became law) to $39,215 in 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis. That increase was the ninth highest in the country. Per-capita personal income includes income from all sources divided by the number of people...

  • Obama’s Support Of Islamic Socialism Seen In Israel

    According to President Obama, Muslims built the “very fabric of our nation.” This is interesting because the very fabric of our nation was built during the colonial period. During this time there wasn’t a single Muslim in America. In fact, there’s no record of a mosque in the United States until 1915 when a group of Albanians built one in Maine. Obama’s rewriting of history is on one hand ridiculous and on the other hand completely understandable. This President favors Islamic socialism in the middle east and he favors socialism at home. He’s in bed with Islam because it suits...

We were reminded of this upon reading the delightful Bud Norman's essay "The end of Language" in which he despairs of the loss of common words like "fop." The disappearance of the word “fop” from the language seems to have coincided with the disappearance of society’s sneering contempt for men who take excessive pride in their physical appearance that it once conveyed, for instance, and as a result American society is inundated with preening pretty boys and empty...

    There were no police at the time the Constitution was written and the Bill of Rights ratified.   Police as we know them did not come into being until a couple of decades later, in the UK, with Sir Robert Peel.   There, giving the police power was resisted as an infringement on local power for a considerable time, and police only gradually spread across the United States. Police forces have taken over many of the functions of local militias, and are for the most part, locally controlled.   The closest modern equivalent of to the militia of the constitutional era are...

    McDonald's is coming under intensifying pressure for labor practices at its U.S. restaurants. The National Labor Relations Board said Tuesday that the world's biggest hamburger chain could be named as a joint employer in several complaints regarding worker rights at franchise-owned restaurants. The decision is pivotal because it could expose McDonald's Corp. to liability for management practices in those locations. It also comes as protests for higher pay have captured national attention, with labor groups calling for pay of $15 an hour and the right to unionize. Organizers had been pushing to get McDonald's named as a joint employer at...

    After the so-called death of the Occupy movement, political activism is making a comeback in Sacramento. In June and July, law enforcement arrested 47 protesters over 12 days at the state Capitol. Those hauled away were members of the newly formed 99Rise movement. They peacefully remained in the building under the rotunda after curfew, in solidarity with their goal of getting big money out of politics. That hasn’t happened yet, of course, but the protesters made headlines by lobbying a few bills—and actually getting two passed. Some of these activists marched nearly 500 miles from Los Angeles to Sacramento, and...

    Analysis: Islamic State advertises war crimes in video By Thomas Joscelyn July 29, 2014 The Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that controls significant territory in both Iraq and Syria, has posted an extremely brutal video. While most Muslims were celebrating the end of Islam's holy month, the Islamic State is celebrating mass executions. Warning: Some of the images below are graphic. The Long War Journal is posting these images because they highlight the depravity of the Islamic State and its followers. The Islamic State likely believes that these images will help intimate its opposition into submission and earn new...

    Despite claims that he switched to the Democratic Party as a result of "GOP racism," Charlie Crist has been unable to secure strong minority support and as a result has lost the lead in his bid to reclaim the Florida Governors mansion against incumbent Governor Republican Rick Scott. In the latest CBS/New York Time/YouGov poll, Scott now leads Crist by five points in a race analysts suggest may be getting away from Crist. Charlie Crist led the race by as many as 15 points in polls taken early this year, but has been unable to muster strong support from minority...

    From the horse's mouth. An interview that CNN surprisingly broadcast on July 24. In the video that you can watch by clicking on the "Enza Ferreri Blog" link above, the son of one of the founders and leaders of Hamas, Mosab Hassan Yousef, enlightens the audience about the true aims of Hamas, which - sorry if this is a spoiler - have nothing to do with the protection of Palestinians, whether children or adults, or the fight to liberate them from Israel's "oppression". Asked why he rejected the political and military objectives of Hamas, for whose leadership he had been...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has just ruled that the federal health care law does not authorize insurance subsidies provided through health care “exchanges” that were set up by the federal government. Only exchanges set up by the states can qualify for these taxpayer subsidies. D.C. Circuit appeal rulings are especially significant because, unlike appeals courts for other districts, they can affect the entire nation, not just one region. Given a contradictory ruling from the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court (which directly affects four states in the Southeast), the issue is likely to be taken up by...

    LTC Allen West (U.S. Army, Ret.) should be, at least, the next U.S. Secretary of State or Defense. Or perhaps our Secretary of Political Incorrectness. The video embedded below deals with many Obama-related subjects, including impeachment, the invasion across our southern border, the "reset" with Russia and the Israeli - Palestinian  conflict. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQtSPVo4jTU] Video linkThe video was posted at Washington Free Beacon with the indented quotations provided below relating to Israel and her Islamist enemies. My comments follow the quotations to which they are pertinent. Former congressman Lt. Col. Allen West says the United States “should allow Israel to crush Hamas.” It should not be up to...

    Amid all the publicity of the city of Detroit’s bankruptcy and bailout, the scramble to find money for road repairs and school superintendents who have spun funding increases as reductions, what may be lost is that the overall state budget is projected to increase by $2 billion in fiscal 2014-15. In fact, the state will spend about $4.7 billion more than it did in 2011-12, according to the Senate Fiscal Agency. An increase in federal money accounts for $2 billion of that $4.7 billion increase over the past three years. The state has appropriated $53.12 billion for 2014-15. The overall...

    All it takes for Obama to protect himself from Impeachment is to accuse Boehner of trying to Impeach him. Always a fool for reverse psychology traps, Boehner dutifully held a Presser today and said: "We have no plans to Impeach the president. We have no future plans. It is all a sham." BINGO! Obama's part-time Day Job is safe, because Boehner is really, Really, REALLY STUPID! Speaker “Blank Check” Boehner has convinced most voters in the Public and US House of Representatives that NOTHING CAN BE DONE to punish B. Hussein Obama for violating the US Constitution unless he is...
