  • Arrested illegals who were released charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes

    President Barack Obama‘s decision not to deport some arrested illegal immigrants has enabled a crime wave — but no American or immigrant victims have been publicly identified, and GOP politicians have mostly remained mute. Illegal aliens who have been released from custody between 2008 and mid-2011 have been charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.“Rather than protect the American people he was elected to serve, President Obama has imposed a policy that allows thousands of illegal immigrants...

    So we have a new term: BRIXIT. Japan's biggest bank Nomura has issued an 11-page study evaluating the likelihood that the UK will leave the European Union entirely or partly. Events could accelerate as soon as this autumn if eurozone woes force the Government to commit to a firm date for a BRIXIT referendum. "The effect a looser relationship with the EU would have on the UK economy in general and on the financial services sector in the UK in particular is not clear at this time, even though British eurosceptics argue that being freed from EU regulation would...
  • America Most Choose To Serve God Or Obama. God Sets Free. Obama Enslaves.

    Are there enough righteous people in America serving God in love, truth and life, to save her from destruction? Or has the hypnotic cult of Obama turned America to worship Obama in hate, lies and death? Are we in a time of testing as was Sodom and Gomorrah before us? Obama employs hypnotic suggestion to gain power over the masses and enslave America to his will. Obama repeats his lies again and again until he infects his victims with hate so they want to believe the obvious lies Obama pours forth like a rancid river. Obama is always caught spouting...

    NASA has come a long way since 1968, when they were sued by Madalyn Murray O'Hair for the Apollo 8 crew's reading of the first 10 verses of Genesis, as they viewed the Earth from Lunar orbit. Today the great technological achievements of the agency are overshadowed by an increasingly anti-God mindset that pervades the scientific community as a whole. A recent example is the purge of Intelligent Design proponent, David Coppedge from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Talk about being lost in space, it's as if Dr. Smith has been put in charge of the mission. Warning, warning, Will Robinson!...

    I caught a segment on the Phoenix local news about the Grand Opening of Barista Caf, which welcomes its first patrons this upcoming Sunday. I wondered why the opening of yet another coffee shop would generate such buzz. As it turns out, Barista Caf is not the usual coffee shop. Its competition is not Starbucks or Peets or Coffee Beanery. No, its targeting the market served by such franchises as Hooters, Twin Peaks and Tilted Kilt (which also got its start in Arizona). Thats because Barista Caf is a bikini coffee shop, one of the nations first, if not the...

    That evening at the Burlington Mall food court, the first things one noticed were some uniformed Burlington police and also several uniformed mall cops. The mall cops approached anyone they suspected was a reporter and told them they couldn't take photos or videos. (For the flood of people on "Appreciation Day" there were no police that we could see and maybe three mall cops. And lots of people took photos and videos the entire time with no trouble.) Around 7:45 pm about a dozen or so activists suddenly came marching into the food court and gathered in front of Chick-fil-A....
  • Ripping A Lib Blogger Who Rips Mitt on Wind Power

    Fellow blogger Jenny Craig (if that is her real name) asks the question, “Why Do Conservative Wingbags Hate Wind Energy?” Assuming that she is talking about wind power and not harnessing the flatulence of bovine bowel activity, I’m more than willing to help a fellow ranter out by answering her question. God knows SOMEONE needs to school her.She leaps off of Romney’s recent policy position that he wants to do away with wind energy tax incentives. She believes Romney (and by association every member of the GOP) are suddenly disconnected from scientific and economic reality for the following reasons:...

    Tearing a page out of the Occupy Wall Street playbook, concerned Grand Traverse County residents are employing a similar strategy this weekend. The residents initiated Occupy the Boardman at the Brown Bridge Dam on Friday, Aug. 3, in order to raise awareness of the environmental and ecological damage initiated by the drawdown of impounded water between three of the Boardman River dams. In addition, OTB is protesting the proposed removal of the dams, which they assert would release trapped toxic sediments from the impoundments into the Grand Traverse County watershed; further destroy property values of landowners who have owned homes...

    There are lots of ways the media can distort the truth. Remember the Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey of North Carolina voters following Barack Obamas evolution on Gay marriage? A June PPP survey contained glaringly bad news for Obama. While PPPs May survey showed Obama winning Black voters support by the normal 87/11 by June that number had shifted to 76/20 and Obamas approval rating among African Americans had gone from 86% to 77% with Romneys approval among Black North Carolinians doubling to 18% - which makes a 20% Black vote for him in the Tar Heel State quite believable....

McCartney, Jr. -Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) An Open Letter to the Supreme Court Justices Soon, same-sex "marriage" will come before the Court: Consider these nine reasons you should uphold traditional marriage. One: A man is not a woman (and vice versa), a reality denied implicitly by same-sex "marriage" proponents. Since Abraham's time, using a man as a woman has been called sodomy. Why should a court make it the basis for the most important social relationship? Is there a civil right to function as the opposite sex in a relationship?...

    A wealthy left-wing super PAC is targeting Tea Party-backed Congressman Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) for defeat because in the eyes of liberal activists hes racist.Just how racist is he?Incredibly racist, professional left-wing organizer Becky Bond told attendees at the Campaign for Americas Futures recent Take Back the American Dream conference in the nations capital. Bond is president of the well-funded Credo SuperPAC, an outgrowth of Credo Mobile, the wireless reseller that donates part of its profits to leftist groups such as the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America, the ACORN-affiliated Project Vote, Color of Change, and the Sierra Club Foundation.Bonds accusations...

    Union heads of both the ICE and Border Patrol Councils have stated that Barack Hussein Obama has deliberately handed a get out of jail free card to illegal alien criminals. In June, Obama bypassed Congress, issuing an unconstitutional executive order which requires Border Patrol agents to release illegal aliens who CLAIM to have: come to the United States under the age of 16 and are not more than 30; lived in the U.S. for five straight years; are currently in school of have graduated high school; obtained a GED or been honorably discharged from the military; or have not been...

    The Moderate Separatist ^ | August 9, 2012 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan
    It began innocently enough: a little unscientific sociological experiment born out of a coffee chat with a friend. How are Christians viewed in todays modern society? The question was stored in the back of my mind for quite a while, waiting for the right moment to be revealed. Social media presented the opportunity to get the ball rolling, and roll it did. A Twitter re-tweet from an atheist telling a person of faith your God isnt real. The arrogance of the statement was obvious. A mortal human believed she possessed the knowledge to single-handedly discount the possibility of a higher...

    Mitt Romney has been called a "vulture capitalist" and even a "murderer" by Obama sycophants and the press does little to disabuse voters of it. CJ gave us ten reasons for liberals to hate Mitt Romney and I'd like to expand even more on that. There's a lot more to Mitt Romney than the Obama press allows. The Bain Story- the real one Given the political controversy over private equity and Mitt Romneys tenure at Bain Capital, its worth taking time to ask, how did Bain Capital perform for its investors? To get some perspective, its first worth acknowledging that...

    A high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative currently in U.S. custody is making startling allegations that the failed federal gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious isnt what you think it is. It wasnt about tracking guns, it was about supplying them all part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. government and Mexicos powerful Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.

    Set Our Children Free ^ | 8/9/12 | Tony Caruso
    An extremely important election was held in Missouri on Tuesday, August 7th, but it didnt involve any primary candidates for elective office. And if you havent heard about it, its because most of the lame-stream media has blacked out an idea could gain momentum. On the ballot in Missouri was a proposed Amendment 2 to the state constitution that protects residents rights to express religious beliefs in the public square. The most incredible (and therefore newsworthy) thing about this referendum, is that it passed by a 5 to 1 margin! You heard that correctly, 5 to 1, i.e. 83% for...

    Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is someone I really like. I like that he says what he thinks and doesnt mind if it ticks off the left. Apparently he made a nice gesture of providing free food for the Black Caucus. Instead of the Black Caucus being thankful that someone else provided food for them, they were offended. Why? Because what Rep. West sent them were Chick-Fil-A biscuits! Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) said that it was a deliberate attempt to offend the members of the Congressional Black Caucus. We have a rotation in the Congressional Black Caucus where every member provides...

    Joe Lieberman is a curious little man. He professes a love for America and Israel, yet his basic liberalism seems to have blinded him to the danger of Islamic terrorism. Tuesday the Democrat Connecticut Senator displayed his naivety when he told an interviewer, Id like to see us take a side. I dont think its enough for us to say Assad should go, Assads a dictator We have a moral responsibility and a strategic opportunity to do more than what were doing there [ in Syria]. Okay this is standard liberal drivel, but what he says next is...

    Former Governor Charlie Crist has formally announced his support for Democrat Senator Bill Nelson. For Florida voters who were tricked into supporting the so-called Republican Governor who promised not to raise taxes and then did just that, this should come as no surprise. When Crist ran for Governor, he signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to Florida voters, promising to oppose any and all efforts to raise taxes. When he was confronted with the need to make a decision on tax hikes and spending cuts, however, Governor Crist broke his promise to Florida taxpayers and signed a budget that included $2.2...
