  • 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....

    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....

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...

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...

In light of that claim, there is a new report out from the IRS that shows just how much better some non-resident workers are improving their lives, courtesy of the taxpayer ID program and the IRS.

    Using the logic of the Obama campaign accusing Romney of the death by cancer of Joe Soptics wife, we can with much greater certainty say that Obama killed Brian Terry. Joe Soptics wife died of cancer seven years after Romney left Bain Capital, five years after his plant closed, four years after his wife lost her health insurance because she left the job that gave her health insurance, and also five years after he was offered a buy-out. So if this makes Romney responsible for Soptics wifes death, there is a much more direct line to Obama and the death...

  • MARRIAGE REMAINS PROTECTED IN HAWAII

    08/08/2012 5:56:40 PM PDT · by massmike · 23 replies
    HONOLULU A federal court Wednesday upheld Hawaiis definition of marriage as one man and one woman. The court rejected a lawsuit that sought to tear down the states law defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman and Hawaiis constitutional amendment that gives the legislature the power to maintain the timeless definition. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys defended the law and the amendment on behalf of Hawaii Family Forum, which the court allowed to intervene in the case in April. This ruling affirms that protecting and strengthening marriage as the union of one man and one woman...

    14 Questions People Ask About How To Prepare For The Collapse Of The EconomyMichael SnyderAugust 8, 2012 How in the world is someone supposed to actually prepare for an economic collapse? What should you do with your money? How can you make sure that your family is going to be okay? How can you prepare if your resources are extremely limited? These are the kinds of questions people ask me all the time. Once people understand that the economy has been collapsing and will continue to collapse, then the next step for most of them is that they want to...

    Tax Provision The 2010 health care bill includes a requirement that employers report on each of their employees Form W-2s the cost of health insurance they sponsor on behalf of that employee. This requirement was made optional for tax year 2011 (when it officially went into effect), and will be optional for small businesses (those with fewer than 250 W-2s) in tax year 2012. ATRF Analysis The IRS has waived the W-2 reporting requirement for tax years 2011 and 2012 because of confusion surrounding the provision. This is understandable, because employers usually use Form W-2 to report salary and wage...

    Michigan House members are worried about large and substantial "transition costs" when closing the pension fund and offering new members a defined-contribution retirement plan. They should know better than to be waylaid by these "transition costs." The state is already adept at avoiding them. Indeed, its implementing this evasion in the very same fund that theyre working on reforming, the Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System. There are seven state universities that participate in this system. In 1995, the legislature closed them out. All of the universitys current employees would continue on in the pension system, but the university would...

  • Obama, Champion Of Hate Lies And Destruction.

    08/08/2012 11:47:55 AM PDT · by Armaggedon · 2 replies
    Obama serves the unholy trinity of hate, lies and destruction. He is a focus of self centered vile human nature. The way to handle such a one is to turn to the light of love, truth and life. Obama rules from the shadows. His mind is ever churning up lying schemes inspired by his impure and hateful heart. Obama seeks absolute power. As a servant of hatred, Obama's ambitions lead America to destruction. Obana believes he can inspire hatred in people. He assumes that those whom he has instigated to hatred will vote for him. He infects everyone possible with...

    So what do you think has been the inevitable result of all the "hate crimes" reported ever since the Kerri DUnn(ce) "hate crime" of 8 years ago? You would think that the left, including DUmmies and HUffies, would finally learn to curb their outrage until the final results are in. Even a DUmb dog would learn that trick after so much practice but nooooooo the HUffington Post HUffies went straight to extreme gullible OUTRAGE mode the moment they read this STORY, "Joseph Baken, Montana Gay Man, Allegedly Beaten Outside Club On His Birthday." Now watch the outrage UNTIL the...
