    Yesterday, a man was arrested and charged with hate crimes for "anti-white" attacks in Central Park last week. Suspect Edward Fall, 20, was charged in two incidents in which he and a group of people allegedly shot pellet guns at white joggers in the park. Fall gave up two of his fellow attackers to police, and blamed them for shooting people—and he also claims that they took bets on hitting targets. Fall told police that his buddies 21-year-old Antwan Ross and another friend he called "Hollywood," were responsible for shooting people in Central Park on August 17th and August 18th....
  • Leftist Ideology Deconstructed in 1,000 Words

    The toxic thinking and horrible consequences of Leftist ideology put into practice and, as explained in the video below this piece, Why the Left Hates America by Daniel J Flynn The foundational epistemological position of all ‪#‎Leftist‬ thought is Marxist dialectical materialism. Most of them may not have studied ‪#‎Marx‬, but that is the basis of everything they stand for. It is a form of secular monist philosophy, maintaining that a Heglian World Spirit is guiding history along in an upward progression [hence they call themselves “‪#‎progressives‬.”] Under that paradigm, an existing order continues until its “internal contradictions” come to...

He then contended that there is no such thing as “radical” Islam. “There is no such thing as a radical or moderate form of Islam,” he said. “You know, a woman is either pregnant or not pregnant.

    BI ^ | Kevin Loria
    Kevin LoriaAugust. 26, 2014 Monosodium glutamate, more commonly known as MSG, gets a bad rap. People claim that it's a toxin that causes headaches and sweating, and that it leaves you feeling lethargic and flushed. The thing is, most research shows that that's not true at normal dietary levels. Despite its umami flavor boosting power, rumors have given MSG a reputation so bad that many Chinese restaurants frequently put up "No-MSG" signs to assuage customer's fear. Some customers then put soy sauce on their food, adding the missing MSG in after the fact. Because it's delicious. The folks at the...

Topping the story’s serial coverage, however, was Obama giving a speech regarding the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS on August 20th, while just minutes after the speech,...

    There are many liberals who view conservatives as bad selfish stupid people and many conservatives who have a similar view of liberals Bad motivations can come into play but since there are also good people on both sides of the political spectrum I will start by addressing the differing assumptions that leads good people to differ. There are two opposing ways to approach making the world a better place. One way is to focus on promoting freedom and individual rights. The other is to promote benevolent control for the benefit of the group. Although there are exceptions to the rule,...

    Minnesota has always been known for its thousands of lakes and cold winters; but now it is drawing attention as a recruiting ground for Islamists willing to fight for ISIS. According to recent reports and the examination of dead bodies, about 10 Minnesotans have joined ISIS in its crusade to destroy the world. The good news is that two of these swine have been killed, but the bad news is that there will likely be more of them coming forward to “settle a score” with Western Civilization. This festering situation has been in the works for a long time. The...

    Increasingly evident that Obama does not want to fulfill the role of the Presidency to provide leadership in times of foreign and domestic crisis When we elect someone—anyone—to the office of President, it is only natural that we attribute great political skills, intellect, and judgment to that man. We want to believe we have selected someone with the ability to do what must be done in a dangerous and very complex world. This may explain why Presidents who have presided in times of war are more highly regarded than those that have not. Washington brought the nation into being by...

    Thousands of TFP Student Action supporting university students are right on the money for lamenting to Oklahoma authorities that… “only Jesus gets no respect”. The students call the “Black Mass” permitted to take place on Sept. 21 at the Oklahoma City Civic Center by local authorities, including Mayor Mick Cornett, “sacrilegious” and “obscene”. Even though the apathy-dogged civic level government is the one most ignored by everyday people, more than 70,000 online petitions have been collected calling on the Civic Center to cancel the “Black Mass”, which is an attack on God and a desecration of the true Catholic Mass.

    In the 1940s and 1950s, when unions were at the height of their extortionist power, it seemed like every year the Brooklyn Dodgers would fall short of a championship and, with the lament of “Wait ‘til next year!” would fill the bars on Flatbush Avenue. While “next year” finally did come in 1955, the Dodgers quickly moved to Los Angeles and “next year” never came to Brooklyn again. This Labor Day stirs memories of “wait ‘til next year,” for the remaining extortionist unions still stealing workers’ pay and giving it to the Democrats. The good news for America is that...

    Darren Wilson might eventually be exonerated for the death of Michael Brown and there's a chance he indeed acted appropriately, at least in terms of self-defense, that fateful day. The law protects him, but it also allows the family of Michael Brown to inquire as to how their unarmed son was killed while walking in the street. Shoplifting cigars from a convenience store does not deserve the electric chair and Wilson never knew of the alleged theft. According to The Wall Street Journal, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson "said the officer stopped Mr. Brown because he was walking in the...

    I have long had a love/hate relationship with pop music. Growing up as an aspiring jazz pianist, I wasn’t interested in listening to anything that might appeal to those that I deemed to possess a less than refined palette of musical taste. This willful ignorance continued for some time; it was not until I began making YouTube videos (and subsequently receiving requests for modern pop songs) that I decided to drop my preconceived notions and examine contemporary pop with an open mind. What I found is that, despite my initial aversion to the stuff I was hearing, I was unable...

While working as a “community organizer,” Barack Obama filed lawsuits which forced banks to give mortgages to people with bad credit and low incomes. As a result, many of these people ended up defaulting on their mortgages. As their attorney, Obama collected $23,000 in legal fees for himself.Then in April 2013, during Obama’s second term as President, the Washington Post reported that President...

    It was inevitable. Rookie Michael Sam, heralded as the first openly gay player in the National Football League, was released Saturday by the St. Louis Rams, prompting the liberal blog Mother Jones to run what amounted to a photo of the player, along with a provocative, almost juvenile headline. The post, “Michael Sam, Who Is Better At Football Than You Will Ever Be At Anything, Has Been Cut By the Rams,” offered no perspective whatsoever. In fact, other than the headline, there were no words. When Sam was first drafted, it was clear that if he were to eventually be...

They are forming more and more alliances and becoming more outspoken with rising strengths against China, in addition to increasing anti-China sentiment from people in all other countries.

Police responded to a report that a man had violated his probation and was currently located in a clothing store in downtown Los Angeles. Upon searching the store for the alleged parole violator, they came across Hussle, who committed an undisclosed action that authorities viewed as obstructing an officer which subsequently resulted in his arrest.

Last week we heard Peter say something that brought a hearty commendation from Jesus, who told Peter that he was the rock on which he would build his church. This week Peter says something that brings a harsh rebuke from Jesus, with Jesus basically calling Peter “Satan” and telling him to get behind him. So in just a few verses, Peter goes from commendation to rebuke, from being called a rock to being called Satan. What...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama faced criticism over his foreign policy from both Democratic and Republican lawmakers on Sunday as he wrestled with crises in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Ukraine. Republican lawmakers seized on Obama's comment on Thursday when he said, "We don't have a strategy yet" for confronting the Islamic State militant group, saying it suggested indecisiveness. On Sunday, influential Democrats chimed in with their own critiques of Obama's foreign policy, chiding him for being "too cautious" on Syria, and urging him to do more to help Ukraine resist Russian advances.

    Current administration would rather squeeze U.S. citizens for more revenue Just like the recent rise of business inversions — moving business HQ abroad — the United States has seen an uptick (up 221%) in Americans renouncing their citizenship. The elephant in the room in both these cases is taxes: both high taxes and burdensome tax compliance in foreign jurisdictions. Instead of facing the problems directly, the Obama Administration has resorted to punitive measures. The shame and blame tactic of calling out businesses who wish to relocate as “unpatriotic” was undignified. Perhaps realizing that using the same strategy with individuals would...

    The Border Patrol has had strict policies about the firing of weapons for decades.    In the most famous recent case, Border patrol agent Brian Terry was killed in a firefight in which the Patrolman used less lethal "bean bag" rounds.    Border Patrol agents I have talked to have always said that the mere presence of a weapon is not enough to justify shooting at someone.   This makes sense, because most people in the United States can legally possess weapons, and because the law is clear on what is required to justify the use of deadly force.   The mere...

While interviewing Ben Carson on CSPAN's After Words, which aired on Sunday, Todd said that Americans who don't pay federal income tax go to casinos or buy lottery tickets and are "spending more money funding our schools, whether it's Detroit or other places." Todd said that though "they are not writing a check to the federal government," poorer Americans "are contributing arguably more money to education...

    Residents of Illinois’ 16th congressional district have a message for Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger, stop supporting amnesty and work to secure the border. That was the overwhelming thought behind Saturday’s immigration town hall meeting at the Ottawa American Legion hall. Before the start of the August recess Kinzinger was one of eleven GOP lawmakers to vote against a bill put forth by Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn and Texas Senator Ted Cruz that seeks to block President Obama from expanding his deferred deportation program, known as DACA, or from instituting any additional amnesty via executive order. That bill along with another...

    At noon on Saturday, August 9, Michael Brown, 18, and his friend, Dorian Johnson, crossed paths with Ferguson, Mo. Police Officer, Darren Wilson. By 12:04 p.m., Wilson had fatally shot Brown six times. His body was left out for hours as other officers responded to the scene. The next evening, his family and community gathered at the site of his death for a vigil in his honor. After a while, they decided to march down West Florissant Ave. to a QuikTrip gas station/convenience store. After that, the details of what is happening in Ferguson become murky, depending on the source....

    The Utah municipality of Sandy City has agreed to stop violating state law.   The city had passed ordinances that were  clearly in violation of state law.    Nearly all states control what power is granted to cities.   State power is granted by the Constitution, and constrained by it, as is federal power. Most states have reserved the power to regulate guns to the state level, so that there will be uniform gun laws throughout the state.   Utah is one of the vast majority of states that have a preemption law that does this. The Second Amendment Foundation has been looking...

    Ted Cruz gave a great speech today, hitting four topics he said would be at the forefront between now and the elections in November: Amnesty, Obamacare, National Security, and the Rule of Law. His biggest applause line came when he called for the impeachment of Eric Holder, where he got a big standing ovation. There’s so many good soundbites you might as well watch the whole speech and you can do that below:

    The Internet is a battlefield, the prize is your information, and bugs are the weapons Aaaron Portnoy started his hacking career when he was still in high school, at the Massachusetts Academy of Math & Science in Worcester, which not coincidentally was the institution he hacked. He did it as follows: Portnoy had a friend call one of the dorms, posing as tech support. The students were more than happy to give him their passwords. Hiding behind those borrowed accounts and routing his approach through proxies in various foreign countries, Portnoy wormed his way into the school’s network through a...

    FERGUSON, Missouri — Before Michael Brown’s death, all Taurean Russell wanted was to finish college, teach history and coach high school football. But that changed August 9, when photos of Brown’s lifeless body, shot by a cop and left sprawled in the street, kept appearing on social media. “I saw a dead body on my timeline. It kept appearing hour after hour and somebody said ‘I hope somebody gets up and does something about it,” said Russell, 30. “Then I heard his mother on TV say, ‘Why did they kill my son.’” Those words triggered something in Russell. He rallied...

    “If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be,” as Yogi Berra once said. If you want to understand what this means, go see The Giver. The Giver is in the great dystopian tradition of Animal Farm and 1984, Brave New World, Atlas Shrugged, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, and so many more. (It also evoked for me memories of the Ring cycle and Lord of the Rings.) It takes place in a “perfect” society that has eliminated war, pain, suffering, differences and choice. They have created a society where everyone is equal (except those who are “more equal,” of...

    There will be a gun turn in event in Cleveland, Ohio on Saturday, 6 September,  2014.  While these events are commonly labeled with the propaganda term "buyback" the guns were never owned by the people attempting to buy them. I have not been able to find any definitive information about where the event will be held, how much will be offered for what firearms, or what the starting and ending times are.  It appears that the event will only collect handguns.   From newsnet5.com: At the handgun buyback event, people can exchange guns for gift cards, no questions asked....

    This is an encouraging paper, because it explains the moral and constitutional justifications to stop the Islamization of our country. We face a grave threat – the Muslims are infiltrating our country and taking over. We seem powerless to resist: Our governments won’t acknowledge the threat; we are told Muslims have “constitutional rights” to come here, proselytize everywhere, build mosques, and implement shariah in their communities and in the public square; and our governments are letting them do it. The Muslims seek to replace our Constitution with shariah – their totalitarian political, economic, military, social & legal system – with...
