    Remember the bakers in Oregon who were driven out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a ceremony that was against their principles? They were fined $135,000 under Oregon law. Now the federal government is going even further, by pushing a bill to erode the First Amendment, which would criminalize opinions deemed as “hate speech.” Indeed, if House Bill 257 is passed into law, you could be jailed for an opinion that defies political orthodoxy with regards to sharia law, or radical Islam. The United States already has strict laws that protect against hate crimes, so one reasonably...
  • ‘It’s a woman!’ Finder of potential Amelia Earhart pics on his discovery

    The retired federal agent who discovered what he believes is the first photographic evidence of Amelia Earhart alive and well after crash-landing in the Pacific Ocean during her attempted round-the-world flight says he didn’t initially capture the significance of the image until years later. The black-and-white photo is of a group of people standing on a dock on Jaluit Atoll in the Marshall Islands, including one who seems to be a slim woman with her back to the camera. A new documentary airing Sunday on the History channel claims the figure is the famed aviator who disappeared 80 years ago...

    How could a suicide victim be found with TWO bullet wounds? As Donald Trump revives the two-decade old Vince Foster case, the charge that the cause of death of the top aide and close friend of the Clintons may not have been suicide has once again been dismissed as the stuff of “right-wing conspiracy theory.” But less than three months ago, WND reported a resignation letter surfaced from the lead investigator in independent counsel Robert Fiske’s investigation of the Foster case, Miguel Rodriguez, outlining evidence of his charge that the case was fixed. Thirteen years ago, WND reported Rodriguez, an...

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott said it is time for the GOP to support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. He said there was no option to sit it out saying, “We have no second chance to get this right.” The governor of the Lone Star State explained that the country is at “a tipping point.” “People have to participate if we are going to put America back on the right track,” Abbott said while appearing on CNBC... “So I think Republicans will unite understanding that we cannot take four or eight more years of the Obama agenda,” the Texas Governor predicted...

    Will release of records about the Skull and Bones Yale fraternity stored at the George W. Bush presidential library reveal important information about the secretive society that counts so many prominent Americans on its roster of members? The National Archives, which supervises the White House records stored at presidential libraries, including the George W. Bush Library, has announced that information located there has been requested under the Freedom of Information Act. It is rumored that Robert Gaylon Ross, author of Who’s Who of the Elite, has made the request. In his book, Ross examined such groups as the Council on...
  • Romanian Hacker ‘Guccifer’ Just Gave Bernie Sanders the Democratic Nomination

    There’s only one Democratic candidate not linked to an ongoing FBI investigation, and his name is Bernie Sanders. Vermont’s Senator will become Democratic nominee for many reasons, but a cyber hacker named “Guccifer” just solidified the fact only one candidate can type an email without scandal. Superdelegates exist so that Republicans like Donald Trump won’t use FBI investigations and foreign hackers against a Democratic nominee. Forget about foreign hackers for a moment, and listen to the words of Defense Secretary Robert Gates. These words are highlighted in a Hill article titled Ex-Pentagon chief: Iran, China or Russia may have gotten...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Thursday said front-runner Donald Trump had defied “common sense” and embraced political correctness by coming out against North Carolina’s law barring people from using public restrooms of the opposite sex. “He said he thought men should be able to go into the girls bathroom if they want,” scoffed Mr. Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas. “Let me ask you, have we going stark raving mad? This is political correctness. This is nonsense.”
  • Ted Cruz Tries, Fails to Explain ‘New York Values’ to Actual New Yorkers

    Cruz's reception in New York was chilly. Back in January, Ted Cruz made the mistake of assuming the rest of America still hates New York. His dismissal of "New York values" didn't endear him to the Empire State — Governor Cuomo demanded an apology from Cruz, and the New York Daily News did what the New York Daily News does best — and as expected, the comment came back to haunt him as he campaigned in the Bronx on Wednesday. Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Long Island, Donald Trump, who's polling ahead of Cruz in New York by a...

    A pro-Trump Super-Pac that is NOT affiliated with the Trump campaign just released this ad. “The ad is being run by the Great America PAC, formed by former Tea Party Express leader Amy Kremer and businessman Bill Doddridge. In the 30-second ad, a mother helping her kids get ready, says: “Sure I get some grief when I say I’m voting for Donald Trump. But you know what, I want to protect my family. Paris, San Bernardino, and now Brussels — I want a president that will keep us safe. We need to control our borders and stop letting in dangerous...

    Trump: Cruz doesn’t ‘even know what state he comes GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Tuesday mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for mistakenly calling Florida his home state. “His home state is not Florida, it is Texas,” he told host Anderson Cooper during a CNN townhall in Milwaukee. “It might be Canada,” Trump quipped, mocking Cruz’s birthplace. “[But] he didn’t even know what state he comes from. Fort Hood is from Texas by the way. I am so surprised, Anderson, that you let him get away with it.” Cruz accidentally called Florida as his home state while discussing a 2009...

    Trump Campaign Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller addressed Friday why immigration and trade are key issues in the Republican frontrunner’s campaign. “Well, there is very little right about our trade deals, there is virtually nothing right about our trade deals. We’ve been getting taken to the cleaners by every country we trade with. We have a trade deficit with almost all of our major trading partners. If you look at, for instance, say Japan, and our car trading deficit, or you look at China, where we have hundreds of billions of dollars in trade deficits, so our entire trade policy...
  • Trump Triumphs At GOP Debate. Rivals And Moderators Can't Lay A Glove On Front-Runner

    It only benefitted the front-runner. Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich did their best to underscore their policy acumen and to highlight Donald Trump’s lack of substance. It backfired. Neither his opponents on stage nor the debate moderators laid a glove on Trump. When Trump repeatedly called Putin a “strong leader” without refusing to place a value judgment on his leadership, neither moderator Jake Tapper nor his opponents on stage pressed him. When Tapper asked Trump about his violence-inciting rhetoric at rallies, none of Trump’s opponents called him out for refusing to disavow it. There is...
  • Trump Turns To S.C. To Propel Unstoppable Campaign

    A day after the New Hampshire primary, Republican presidential hopefuls were set Wednesday to fan out across South Carolina and begin jockeying for the first-in-the-South primary that has a history of picking the eventual nominee. Billionaire businessman and reality TV star Donald Trump has the early edge in polling there and in other key states as the race turns to the South and West over the next six weeks. South Carolina has the potential to launch Mr. Trump into victories in a series of delegate-rich multistate primaries next month and turn his campaign into an unstoppable juggernaut toward the nomination.

    News of yesterday's murders and rampage at Ft. Hood began to surface just as my national radio show was beginning. The first segment of the program was with Senator Marco Rubio --itself a newsmaker-- was wrapping up as first reports of an "active shooter at Ft. Hood" appeared on Twitter. The second segment, about DOD's budget with Robert O'Brien of Arent Fox included two references that a story was developing and O'Brien, a veteran of media firestorms from years at the U.N. and an experienced litigator, was careful to note the number one concern was for the victims and their...

    First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to...

I'm in my 20s and of Hispanic origin. I was born in New York but moved to Florida when I was three years old. I'm what you guys would consider a "socialist". I don't consider myself a socialist, I'm a supporter of the free market economy except I favor strong government regulations. While on...

And that, the family believes, is why child welfare case workers and police officers visited the home in Carneys Point last Friday and asked to see his guns.</p>
