    My fellow Americans, we are being bullied like never before by Leftists who include Obama and the MSM. We are being forced not only to tolerate, but embrace their liberal far-left radical socialist/progressive agenda. Their agenda is particularly hostile towards Christians, the unborn, American traditions and exceptional-ism. Noncompliance or opposing points of view are not tolerated; either total submission or suffer total destruction.
  • Climate McCarthyism Witch Hunt Continues With The Sacking Of Caleb Rossiter

    Junk Science: Without evidence to back up their claims, climate zealots have taken to intimidation. They're blacklisting academics who have the nerve to question the "settled science" of climate change. The latest victim of climate McCarthyism is Caleb Rossiter, who, until his op-ed challenging the "consensus" on climate change was published in the Wall Street Journal, was a Democratic academic who briefly forayed into politics but was content to crusade against U.S. support for dictators and against the use of anti-personnel land mines. In that op-ed, Rossiter called himself an "Africanist." He not only questioned the science behind climate change...

    California Mayor Cameron Hamilton has some blunt advice for those who are being bullied: “Grow a pair.” “I’m against bullying, but I’m getting damn tired of it being used as a mantra for everything and the ills of the world, when most people have to just grow a pair and stick up for them damn selves,” the Porterville mayor said at a city council meeting last week. CNN describes the mayor as “looking and talking like an Old West figure,” and he’s not backing down despite claims that his comments were homophobic.

    After a disabled special education child tried to record how bullies were tormenting him at school, the police in Pennslyvania responded by slapping him with the charge of felony wiretapping. In a related report by The Inquisitr, some parents are angry over one school’s anti-bullying policy, claiming it specifically endorses a homosexual agenda. But when one bus driver was caught on video bullying a crying child the resulting outcry had everyone angry. Back in 2012, the Huffington Post documented the new trend of parents having their disabled children wiretapped based upon abuse from teachers and bullying students alike. Although some...

    Rep. Michele Bachmann spoke out against Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s recent decision to veto a measure that some say would’ve allowed businesses to refuse service to gay people. “The thing that I think is getting a little tiresome is that the gay communities have so bullied the American people and they’ve so intimidated politicians. The politicians fear them, and so they think that they get to dictate the agenda everywhere,” Bachmann said. “Well not with the Constitution you don’t.”

    AP ^ | 2/26/14 | BOB CHRISTIE
    Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday vetoed a Republican bill that set off a national debate over gay rights, religion and discrimination and subjected Arizona to blistering criticism from major corporations and political leaders from both parties. Brewer's decision defused a national furor over gay rights and religious freedom. The bill backed by Republicans in the Legislature was designed to give added protection from lawsuits to people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. But opponents called it an open attack on gays that invited discrimination. The bill thrust Arizona into the national spotlight last week after both...

    An 11-year-old boy is in the hospital after trying to commit suicide—the victim of bullying at school. It’s not a new problem in North Carolina, but this puts a new face on the age-old problem as Michael Morones remains in WakeMed with a tube down his throat and potentially life-long brain damage. Michael tried to kill himself, apparently because he could no longer take the torrent of bullying he was facing at school. “He’s the kid that never walks. He dances everywhere,” said Michael’s mother, Tiffany Morones-Suttle. “He’s so full of energy. He’s always on the move.” …

    (CNN) -- In the last few months, the word rippled through news reports of tragic teen suicides in Connecticut, New York, Nova Scotia and Britain. It's the same word sometimes used to describe the way reality TV stars treat one another on camera, or how unfriendly office mates interact or why grade school pals stop getting along. Every parent, teacher and child knows the word: "bullying." But this month, as schools and communities launch fresh campaigns around National Bullying Prevention Month, some are urging more precise use of the B-word. "Bullying," some researchers say, has been misused and abused in...

    The House Oversight Committee wants to find out why the Park Service behaved so bizarrely. ... Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, a former prosecutor, almost drove National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis into incoherence with his relentless questioning. Gowdy wanted to know why Jarvis had allowed “pot-smoking” Occupy Wall Street protesters to camp overnight illegally in Washington’s McPherson Square park for 100 days, yet put up barricades to keep veterans out of war memorials on the first day of the shutdown. By not issuing a single citation to the Occupy campers, Gowdy argued, the Park Service was treating them...

    His act of bravery earned him brutal beating from a trio of physically imposing bullies, including a fracture under his eye, stitches all over his face — including in his tear duct — and a concussion. But Wen Jones, 43, said he’d do it all over again. The former marine and father of two observed a 14-year-old boy and his 55-year-old father getting harassed and abused by three 20-year-old men at a Florida beach. The boy’s father, LeRoy Wright Jr., told the men to leave, but Jones sensed the bullies were about to attack. “I couldn’t stand there and watch...

    FULL TITLE: Shocking Facebook video of white toddler, 3, being 'racially bullied' by her five-year-old black neighbors A shocking video which appears to show the racially motivated bullying of a three-year-old white girl by her five-year-old black neighbors is not what it appears say the father's of the children involved. Two clips uploaded to Facebook and entitled 'When white people pi** black people off', show a heartbreaking scene - a little Minneapolis girl trying to play with another group of girls who are encouraged to hit, push and verbally abuse the toddler at the encouragement of an older boy off...

    A CBS affiliate in Clark County, Nevada, has uncovered video of a disturbing incident in family court, in which a mother present for a routine proceeding is sexually assaulted and then arrested in full view of the court. An internal investigation has since revealed that both the harassment and its alleged cover-up may be part of a wider problem of abuse within the family court system. The initial events took place in 2011, when Monica Contreras was led from the court into a waiting room for a supposed, though unexplained, drug search. She then says a court marshal named Ron...

Behind the obvious violations of his Constitutional rights is Monsanto. Ingram was researching Roundup’s effects on bees, which he’s raised for 58 years. “They ruined 15 years of my research,” he told Prairie Advocate, by stealing most of hisstock.

    Heritage Foundation: A book event- While the Left likes to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their heart and soul, Ben Shapiro, editor-at-large of Breitbart.com, argues that in reality the Left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the go-to tactic used to quash opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing our nation. Whether playing the race card, the class card, or the sexism card, any and every means is invoked to demonize the opposition. By creating a climate of fear, ordinary Americans are...

As a final question, Hannity asked Ben how do conservatives counter the progressive bullies today. Ben answered, “We can’t be civil with them. We can’t. We’ve reached the end of bipartisanship. We’ve reached the end of civility. It’s like the Geneva Conventions. These people are out of uniform. Once they exit the realm of civility they are now fair game. And it’s enough playing...

    Vice President Joe Biden, who is heading up the President’s task force on gun control proposals, announced Tuesday that he would be meeting this week with the National Rifle Association, among other groups. And his timing is just a bit suspect; the day before meeting with the NRA, Biden will be meeting with gun control organizations and shooting victims. Presumably, his welcome for the NRA will be somewhat less hearty. The NRA, under heavy public pressure thanks to the White House’s bully tactics after the Sandy Hook massacre, said it would visit the White House

    The ACLU insists that educators separate the sexes in school only because they want to teach “outdated gender stereotypes,” based on discredited science, in order to discriminate (against which sex isn’t quite clear, as we’ll see). The Union’s arguments against single-sex schooling deserve rebuttal, but first let’s recall all the reasons it’s preposterous for the ACLU to thump its chest and claim the mantle of Protector of Children. First, the ACLU has for decades been soft on kiddie porn. Usually the Union can bear the idea of making the actual abuse of children a crime, but it will oppose criminal...

    A gay activist group “re-launched” a boycott of the embattled Chick-fil-A restaurant chain, with a protest at the only Chicago store Wednesday afternoon. Protesters gathered at 4:30 p.m. at the 30 E. Chicago store. In a statement, the group Gay Liberation Network is seeking to boycott what they claim is millions of dollars that is used to promote discrimination against gays. The restaurant became a lightning rod for controversy last month when the company’s CEO Dan Cathy said “we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say 'We know better than you...

    A YouTube video uploaded on Monday afternoon apparently shows a schoolteacher from the Rowan-Salisbury school district in North Carolina informing a student that failing to be respectful of President Obama is a criminal offense. The video shows a classroom discussion about the Washington Post hit piece about Mitt Romney bullying a kid some five decades ago. One student says, “Didn’t Obama bully someone though?” The teacher says: “Not to my knowledge.” The student then cites the fact that Obama, in Dreams from My Father, admits to shoving a little girl. “Stop, no, because there is no comparison,” screams the teacher....

    This took place in Kannelmäki, a suburb of Helsinki. The kids doing the bullying are all of immigrant extraction, and are doing what all school bullies have done throughout history, torment others unwilling to fight back. The interesting thing here is that it breaks with the carefully crafted PC meme that only minorities can be the victims. If the roles where reversed, you would hear the politicians and human rights groups decrying the wave of racism that’s raging through the streets and schools of Finland. NOTE: Apparently one of the kids bullying placed it on the net. They pretty much...

Although they may use it out of context, it suits their purpose and explains the way things work in their system. Disregard the reality of the situation and imagine it to be the fault of someone or something else. To the Obama Administration and the Democrats it falls into four standard categorical answers. Each one used separately or in conjunction with the others to explain away their mistakes or blunders. In the case of a huge blunder...

Even worse, so much bullying today has turned to torment. Yesteryear's boyhood brawls have transformed into today's torture. It's a new day in which social networks have created cyber-bullying. Why harass a kid in a school hall with a handful of kids when one can use Facebook and YouTube to bully him or her repeatedly in full view of the whole world? In so doing, the public damage and consequences...

Trig, for those who don't remember, is Sarah Palin's youngest son, who has Down Syndrome. The initial response to this "celebration" of Trig's birthday was limited to comments getting in on the action, contributing the sort of jokes that would make Gilbert Gottfried proud. But then, according to Slate's David Weigel, conservative bloggers stumbled across it and the...

    There is a lot of talk from many people about bullying in school. The problem is that it is all talk. There is no sign that anybody is going to do anything that is likely to reduce bullying. When politicians want to do nothing, and yet look like they are doing something, they appoint a blue ribbon committee or go to the U.N. or assign some Cabinet member to look into the problem and report back to the President — hoping that the issue will be forgotten by the time he reports back. When educators are going to do...

    PRINCETON, N.J. -- It has become the talk among African American students at the prestigious Princeton Theological Seminary -- racially charged fliers and postings. All of it is apparently anti-abortion literature. Among the fliers was one that displayed a noose and another with the words "in the new klan lynching is for amateurs."... "There was a lot of devastation for me, psychological damage, injury, because I saw this as social bullying," student Shirley Thomas said... The fliers originate from various sources, pointing out the number of African American deaths by abortion. Student Katherine Timpte called the fliers "appalling and tragic...

    JACKSON — A video circulating on the Internet shows a Mississippi special needs student being punched in the face, and now the teenager’s family wants stiffer punishment for the attacker and implementation of a stronger bullying policy.

She said the other student was wearing a boxing glove when he hit her nephew in the school gymnasium during a study hall. She said it was a violent and unprovoked attack. Snyder said her nephew functions on a 10-year-old level and...

    WKOW reported yesterday that an investigation is ongoing to determine the veracity of more than 1000 doctor excuses that have been handed in by Madison teachers in an attempt to justify their absence from teaching duties that ultimately resulted in the closing of school for four consecutive days. The results of this inquiry will result in teacher suspension. "A new contract with Madison teachers says fraudulent excuses will result in a letter of suspension but won't require suspended teachers to be off from work." How is that for punishment! I mean really, if this is the ultimate result of any...

    While the Department of Education continues its crackdown on mean-spirited taunting on Facebook, some members of Congress are joining the fight in Washington’s War on Bullying with a new bill aimed directly at kids who target students with disabilities. Rep. Jackie Speier, California Democrat, will introduce a bill that would require schools to report incidents of bullying against children diagnosed with conditions like Down syndrome and Aspergers to the federal government. It would also mandate that any federal dollars that promote anti-bullying programs focus partially on that group.

The female protestor (sic), who had a young child with her, approached the recall table pretending to be interested in signing the petition, then proceeded...

    It's a video that is sweeping the Internet -- an Australian boy fights back against his bully. Yet he was the one suspended from school. The video shows a far bigger boy named Casey Heynes minding his own business when a smaller boy starts harassing him. The bully punches Casey in the face -- which doesn't seem to faze Casey. The boy tries to hit Casey again, but he's able to fend off the punches. Finally, Casey gets fed up and picks up the smaller boy and body slams him to the ground. The smaller boy may have learned his...

    Parents across the metro area, in different school districts, have similar stories to tell when it comes to the way their children were treated after reporting they were bullied. “The other kid jumped in and had the boxcutter up and threatened to stab her over and over again,” Tina Williams said. “And he said, ‘I wouldn't stab a girl, but I'd stab a b**** and I'm looking at one right now,’ when he looked at my daughter.” “At lunch I am kind of afraid that they are going to threaten me again,” said Williams' daughter, Kayla. “She's heard jackass, b****,...

    Monika Shreves, a college senior with a petite frame and long, black hair, remembers the first mean girl she met. The girl lived in Shreves's Northern Virginia neighborhood and had the blondest hair and eyelashes Shreves had ever seen. The two arrived together at Girl Scout camp, and the girl assumed command of the cabin they were to sleep in. "This is the cool cabin," she told the other girls who wandered into the campsite, looking for a place to throw down their stuff. She'd size up each girl. "You can come in," she'd tell one. "You cannot," she'd tell...
