    For decades we've heard Republicans and Democrats tell us that we have to somehow "overturn Roe vs. Wade" in order to stop the abortion holocaust. In the first place, there's nothing to "overturn." Roe was not a law. It was an arbitrary, unconstitutional, lawless court opinion delivered by a handful of oath-breaking, unprincipled, usurping judges -- men who have all already gone on to meet the Supreme Judge of the Universe to explain exactly why they did what they did. Their mere opinion, in one particular case, which opened the door to one of the largest mass murders in human...

    An EgyptAir airliner has been hijacked and forced to divert to Larnaca airport on the south coast of Cyprus. Flight MS181, an Airbus A320 carrying 81 passengers from Alexandria to Cairo, was taken over after a passenger said he was wearing an explosives belt. Negotiations are under way but no demands have been made by those in control of the plane, reports say. A local journalist has told the BBC that some passengers had been seen leaving the plane.

    No one who has not participated in the rules-making process for the national Republican Party is likely to understand all provisions of the current rules, much less how those rules, whether as they now read or how they might be changed, would affect what happens at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Changed or not, The Rules of the Republican Party will have huge effects not expected or predicted by any of the national pundits who make their livings now commenting on the Republican presidential nomination contest.

    COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- The man suspected of shooting Pastor Tim Remington, 30-year-old Kyle Odom, was arrested outside of the White House and in custody Tuesday evening in Washington D.C., police said during a press conference Tuesday evening. Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Lee White said Odom was apprehended outside of the White House by Secret Service. He threw several items over the White House fence, which included some flash drives and other unknown items. Hazmat and bomb teams are working to identify the items.

    BEND – Something didn't seem right about the bullet hole in the top of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum's white Dodge pickup. Investigators from the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office could account for bullet holes in the left front hood, the driver's side mirror and the front grille. They came from the automatic weapon of a state trooper who had fired three times at the truck as Finicum raced at 70 mph toward a police roadblock on Jan. 26. The angle of a fourth bullet hole didn't match the others. An elaborate computer analysis, a review of the FBI aerial video of the...

    In Tuesday’s elections in Massachusetts, liberal GOP Governor Charlie Baker and his political team are conducting an unprecedented large-scale, state-wide campaign to purge all social conservatives from having any significant voice in the State Party. Baker and his people have recruited hand-picked political “moderates,” answerable to Baker, to run against social conservatives in the local Republican State Committee elections across the state. He is funding their election expenses, and his people are coordinating their campaigns. Baker is also helping a number of current RINO State Committee members fend off challenges from grassroots conservatives in their districts.

We'll also find out if they also placed Donald Trump's name there as well. He'll likely be on the Republican ballot line in their closed primary, but the AIP offered his name up as well for their non-binding open primary, in which Independents will be able to vote. California law allows candidates to appear on multiple party ballot lines. Once again, though, the actual nominee of the...

    After years of running up against unconstitutional federal education mandates imposed on states using bribes and bludgeoning from Washington, D.C., a group of parents and grassroots education activists from across America is launching a fresh effort to shut down the U.S. Department of Education once and for all. The mission: "Stop Fed Ed." In the crosshairs is everything from dumbed-down "standards" such as the Obama-backed Common Core nationalization of schooling and associated federal testing regimes, to the deeply controversial federal data gathering and data mining encouraged and financed largely by the feds. The group hopes to pressure Congress into ending...

    RealClearPolitics ^ | Dec. 15, 2015 | Caitlin Huey-Burns
    Donald Trump could hold the threat of an independent presidential bid over the GOP for months. And it could be just that - a threat. Given the extraordinary expense, organizational requirements, and other challenges of getting on the ballot in every state - nearly 600,000 petition signatures are needed in total - the threat seems hollow to some. But Trump has several months to decide. The first state deadline isn't until May 9 in Texas, which requires roughly 80,000 signatures for ballot access. The bulk of states have an August or September deadline, with various signature requirements or filing fines....

    Even if you think Donald Trump is a blind squirrel, remember that even a blind squirrel can often stumble over a nut. Let me be as blunt as I can possibly be: The idea that the Constitution prevents us from barring entry to this country of those who are committed to our subjugation or annihilation is just plain stupid. Those promulgating this view are at best dangerous ignoramuses. If the Constitution was really such a suicide pact it would itself automatically be illegitimate. The God-given, unalienable right to self-protection is the first part of the natural law, which precedes and...

    We Americans are a kind and compassionate mostly-Christian people. History backs up that claim. However, our enemies have perfected the art of using our kindness and compassion against us. At no time has this been demonstrated more vividly than today, when Muslim and Leftist propagandists use the horrible plight of children and women (a plight Leftists and Muslims brought about) to try and tug on our heartstrings so that we will naively admit millions more Islamists into our country, a large majority of whom perfectly fit the profile of those who have committed thousands of vicious terrorist attacks around the...

    The first stated purpose of the U.S. Constitution is "to form a more perfect Union." Allowing immigrants into this country when their religion/political ideology is completely hostile to, and incompatible with, the principles upon which American republican self-government is premised makes that first stated purpose totally impossible of fulfillment. As has been stated, correctly, so many times, the Constitution is not a suicide pact.

    What exactly is a conservative, in the historical American sense of that word? A conservative is someone who understands the self-evident truth that our rights come from God, not from any man. A conservative is someone who understands that, before anything else, legitimate human government exists to equally protect and defend our God-given, unalienable, individual rights, including the rights of those who are as yet unborn. A conservative is someone who understands the simple difference between right and wrong.

    Opinions are sometimes right, and sometimes wrong. But they aren't law. In the early days of our government, Supreme Court opinions were so insignificant that Congress didn't bother preserving them. Opinions were left to individuals to keep track of, and were not congressionally-funded into official records until 1874, almost a century after our independence. Before Congress stepped in, Court records were printed and kept under copyright by private citizens and reporters, who sold them for profit. Opinions of the Court were kept "loosey-goosey" for decades, and not preserved with certified integrity. Actual statute was held officially and carefully, in order...

    On the floor of the U.S. Senate on Sunday evening, something remarkable—a little bit insider-y in Washington, but remarkable nonetheless—happened: The Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), his entire leadership team, and most of the Republicans in the U.S. Senate voice voted through measures to fund Planned Parenthood in its entirety and to help protect President Barack Obama’s nuclear arms deal with Iran. The reason the voice vote is significant is because McConnell, especially, and his Whip Sen. John Cornyn, purposefully launched what appears to be an unprecedented effort to duck accountability for their votes—and the votes of every...

    "Gay marriage" makes it impossible to fulfill a single clause of the stated purposes of the Constitution. You can't possibly "form a more perfect Union" by destroying the most important first bonds that tie together any society, the bonds of holy matrimony, and the bonds of the natural family. You can't "establish Justice" by committing the gross injustice of destroying the first and most important institution of civil society, which is the family. You can't "insure domestic Tranquility" by committing violence against domestic life. You can't "provide for the common defense" by destroying the source of the next generation that...

We'll be barbecuing tomorrow and greatly enjoying the fellowship of family and friends. We'll be lighting off a few celebratory firecrackers, as John Adams suggested we should do. We'll go to the local fireworks display and commemorate our national liberty and independence with our fellow citizens. But, on this particular Independence Day, something important is missing. I can't help but mourn, as traitors, cowards, wicked men, and oath-breakers run amok in American halls of power....

    ...Americans still loyal to the premises of right and justice must emphatically reject this decision. They must refuse to submit to it, just as in colonial times America’s first patriots refused to submit to British taxes imposed without regard for the will of legislatures elected by the people... The Obergefell decision is a more directly treasonous betrayal of constitutional law and justice than any of those previous acts of tyranny. As ratified by the American people, the U.S. Constitution derives its authority from their sovereign will. In the Declaration of Independence they cite the authority of “the laws of nature...

    R.D. Lampe with the Boone, Iowa police department confirms exclusively to Breitbart News that a bomb threat was called in to the Iowa Roast and Ride with a voice recorder. He later added that as that event was ending, a second bomb threat was called to authorities in Polk county. Lampe says that when bomb threats are made, it’s usually difficult to track down the caller. He says a number can be traced, but it’s usually a throw-away phone. The potential security breach prevented candidates getting to their tents and greeting voters for a time on Saturday. At least seven...

    ----- “The latter is especially important since, having been to the closed room to review the secret text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, it is clear it more closely resembles a treaty than a trade deal. “In other words, through fast-track, Congress would be pre-clearing a political and economic union before a word of that arrangement has been made available to a single private citizen.” The letter hones in on the new global governance, as Sessions calls it, that would be created by the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)—which would almost certainly be approved by Congress should the House of Representatives vote...

    Massive US-funded “gay" blitzkrieg as never seen before. Are other countries next? Nationwide vote would have surely failed otherwise. This should be a wake-up call around the world. Last Friday’s 62% vote in Ireland to legalize “gay marriage” has been hailed as a triumph of progressive thinking by the mainstream media and the political establishment. The outcome shocked many in the pro-family movement. But what the mainstream press isn’t reporting is even more shocking. There is no question that the secularization of Ireland, the weakness of the Catholic Church and refusal of the Pope to intervene, the corrupt political class,...

    Remember On this day, remember The men who died And, for their sake, don't ever forget The loved ones they left behind They gave it all For you and me They paid the full and final price To keep us strong and free Despite their worst fears They took the bloody field They faced the awful foe They would not yield Greater love for his friends Can no man show Than to give his life And take the blow Christ set the perfect example Long ago, across the sea Of service, of sacrifice, of suffering To set, and to keep,...

    President Calvin Coolidge warned in a speech given MAY 15, 1926, at the College of William and Mary, in Williamsburg, Virginia: "But there is another...recent development... the greatly disproportionate influence of organized minorities. Artificial propaganda, paid agitators, selfish interests, all impinge upon members of legislative bodies to force them to represent special elements rather than the great body of their constituency. When they are successful, minority rule is established... ...The result is an extravagance on the part of the Government which is ruinous to the people and a multiplicity of regulations and restrictions for the conduct of all kinds of...
