    "As promised… I just walked into a local pub (PUB 25, Newtown, CT) and asked to speak with the Owner/Manager. I asked if I could leave a cold one on the bar for Michael all day . I showed him the “Reserved” sign I made and explained I wanted to leave him sufficient funds to buy a random person a Guinness every hour today, and that when the surprised patron asks him “Who is this from?” he should reply: “It’s from LT Michael P. Murphy.” and point to the reserved sign. The Owner/Manager was so in tune with this small...

    (This is the total article but apparently needs to be excerpted. Also needs account to be accessed. That's how the lamestream media forces you to read their version of the news.) A Freeport man has been slapped with criminal charges after he tried to upgrade his flight at Kennedy Airport by claiming to be in the U.S. Army, prosecutors said Monday. Rock Diaz, 22, of Frankel Avenue was released on his own recognizance after his arraignment Saturday in Queens Criminal Court, the Queens district attorney's office said. The criminal complaint against Diaz said he was wearing a U.S. Army uniform,...

    A new woman has come forward with what she claims are photographs, chats, and emails with Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY). These appear to undermine severely Rep. Weiner’s explanations that he was the victim of a “prank” or a “hack.” The detailed new information suggests that the Brooklyn- and Queens-based representative and the young woman in question were involved in an online, consensual relationship involving the mutual exchange of intimate photographs. and were approached regarding this information more than a week prior to the separate, independent event of Friday, May 27, 2011, when a link to the now-infamous “gray...

    Florida Republican Rep. Cliff Stearns is demanding an investigation into cybersecurity issues raised by #Weinergate, saying it is vital to "ensure our national security." Though New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner remains silent on whether or not he'll be seeking an investigation into his claims that his Twitter and Facebook accounts were hacked, leading to his Twitter account's posting of a picture of a man's erect penis underneath gray boxer-briefs, Stearns told The Daily Caller that the imbroglio raises troubling questions that should be looked into by Congress.

    "The Insolvent Phantom of Tomorrow" From Eisenhower's Farewell Address, January 17 1961 Often quoted as his warning about "the Military-Industrial Complex," Eisenhower's speech also includes other warnings. One concerns "the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite," which is now cited concerning the pervasive fraud surrounding global warming and other "scientific" boondoggles. Another passage concerns something of much more importance to our present moment: "Another factor in maintaining balance involves the element of time. As we peer into society's future, we-you and I, and our government-must avoid the impulse to live...
  • NY Times Plans To Gut The Pentagon (want cuts to Navy, Air Force & Pay)

    04/22/2011 10:00:25 AM PDT · by jdfromny · 23 replies ^ | 4/20/11 | James Hanson
    Obama decided to inform the Defense Department that they needed to make $400 Billion in cuts by announcing this is in a speech without even mentioning it to his Defense Secretary. Therefore it is unsurprising that the NY Times would take this opportunity to anounce their cunning plan to screw the troops and crush our expeditionary fighting capability. I guess this requires at least a partial Fisking. "We in no way minimize the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform." Yeah right. Wait for it...... "But after years of lagging far behind, military pay is now more than...

    Here's a cover from American Legion magazine in 1951. It highlights, "Commies and those who play their game." [emphasis added] How strangely contemporary it seems. It's sixty years later and yet it seems that nothing has changed on ye olde picket line. Has nothing changed in America in sixty years? Whole worlds have shifted in the country to such an extent that it would exhaust libraries to shelve the books written on those changes. But in the colonized minds of the Left it is still, and will always be, someplace between the Finland Station and the Fall of the Berlin...

    A 2-year-old boy watched his mother get shot to death by MS-13 gang members in a wooded section of Central Islip last year before one of them turned the gun on the crying toddler, killing him, according to federal court papers. The mother, Vanessa Argueta, 19, had taken her young son, Diego Torres, with her on what she thought was a dinner date last February because she didn't have a baby-sitter, the court papers said. Among those who took part in the execution-style killings, according to the federal documents, was the mother's former boyfriend. The account of the killings is...

    Want to know why the Democrats in Congress are mumbling "f*** the president"? Want to know why the Cancun mobsters are demanding world power for yesterday's climate fascism? This is Dunkirk, folks. It's the Battles of Midway and Gettysburg rolled into one. This is the watershed moment in history. This is where the Evil Empire gets its comeuppance. The next few years may be the most historic ones in our lives. The left is at the very peak of its power since the Evil Empire fell in 1991, with Obama occupying the White House today, surrounded by his commissars. The...
  • 8 Dems Arrested in Bell, CA 'Corruption on Steroids' - Not a Single Mention of Affiliation From MSM

    Today, eight city council members were arrested in Bell, California for what Los Angeles County District Attorney labeled "corruption on steroids." Thus far, every major news outlet that has reported on the story has omitted the fact that all eight individuals arrested are Democrats. These glaring omissions come only weeks after NewsBusters reported that of the 351 stories on the then-brewing controversy, 350 had omitted party affiliations, and one had mentioned they were Democrats only in apologizing for not doing so sooner. ABC, CBS, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, Bloomberg, USA Today, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and the San...
