    American Freedom Law Center ^ | 6-21-16 | Unknown
    The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today unanimously reversed a trial court’s ruling dismissing a fraud case brought against the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The result of the appellate court’s ruling is that CAIR National, operating out of the District of Columbia, must stand trial and allow a jury to hear all of the evidence of the massive fraud and attempted cover up carried out by CAIR and perpetrated against hundreds of CAIR fraud victims. In January of last year, Judge Paul Friedman, the federal judge presiding over a five-year old lawsuit alleging...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | June 22, 2016 | Esme Cribb
    At the close of her Wednesday rally in North Carolina, Hillary Clinton directly responded to remarks that Donald Trump made hours earlier in a speech focused on attacking her qualifications. "I know Donald hates it when anyone points out how hollow his sales pitch really is," she said. "I guess my speech yesterday must have gotten under his skin, because right away he lashed out on Twitter with outlandish lies and conspiracy theories and he did the same in his speech today. Now, think about it. He's going after me personally because he has no answers on the substance." She...
  • [Video]: Mugger wants valuables, gets shot instead

    This scumbag in the blue shirt made a real bad decision which involved mugging an off-duty-cop. While the cop empties the content of his pockets, he then backs off quickly. The guy picks up the items, then turns around only to be greeted with full on lead! The officer pulls his concealed carry and shoots the guy close range. The guy goes down and the cop proceeds to clear the area, naturally very cautious of any fellow scumbag sidekicks who are lingering in the background. Mugger wants valuables, gets shot instead

    Microwave News ^ | mAY 26, 2016
    The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years. Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at...

    The following is a direct quote from Ann Coulter's 2009 book Guilty. In Whitewater, homes were offered for "sale," the purchase price to be paid in installments. But if a purchaser defaulted on a single monthly payment, there would be no foreclosure proceeding: The purchaser would automatically lose everything invested in the property--the house, the equity, and all prior payments. The small print of the contract said that if a monthly payment was not made within 30 days, all prior "payments made by the purchaser shall be considered as rent for the use of the premises."The Clintons always loudly boasted...

The Uncle Tom Party's long villainous history of enforcing slavery, Jim Crow, segregation and all that goes with it is well documented and well-known. But now, more than ever, the Uncle Tom Party is the engine of opposition to the very concept of liberty for all American citizens. The truth is, Progressive Leftists are opposed to individual...

    BOSTON, MA - In a 15-hour procedure spanning two days and performed by a more than 50-member team, surgeons at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital have completed the first penis transplant in the U.S. Thomas Manning, a 64-year-old bank courier for Halifax, lost his penis to cancer in 2012 and was the recipient of the transplant. The organ came from a deceased donor. In a press conference Monday, MGH surgeons described the intense isolation and loss that comes with losing the penis, as a result of injury or illness. "Ultimately, it's a loss of self-identity," said Dr. Dicken Ko, the team...

    The Whiteness Project is back to revive the ill will engendered by racism in American culture. Documentary filmmaker Whitney Dow released the second installment of the PBS interactive digital series designed to show white people speaking genuinely about racism. This part consists of interviews of 24 white millennials in Dallas over the summer of 2015. His first installment, filmed in October, 2014, features 21 white adults in Buffalo, New York. Dow’s goal is to interview 1,000 white Americans across the country. While the ostensible purpose of the series is to spotlight white people’s views on racism described in their own...

    News with a headline that says “XXXXXX covers Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’” might not win any journalism awards or set the world on fire. The perennial cover band chesnut has been done to death, and has been destroyed by many untalented hands. Still, there’s nothing generic or bad about this news; in fact, let me assure you, you need to listen to this version of the song. The Warning is made up of three sisters from Monterrey: 14 year old guitarist and vocalist Daniela, 12 year old drummer Paulina, and 9 year old bass player Alejandra. They made this video last...

    Although there are several major problems with the reauthorization of the Education Sciences Reform Act (ESRA) now called The Strengthening Research Through Education Act (S 227, SETRA), the most pressing and concerning is the expansion of federal education research to psychologically profile our children beginning in preschool: Section 132 of the bill (page 28, line 16-21) inserts the following: “and which may include research on social and emotional learning, and the acquisition of competencies and skills, including the ability to think critically, solve complex problems, evaluate evidence, and communicate effectively…” (Emphasis added).Here are more of the many concerns: 1) Lack...

    Best sitar/tabla piece ever -- Ravi Shankar & Chatur Lal play Raga Mishra Piloo In Thumri Style If you're wondering why the Google logo has a sitar on it today, it's because today would have been the 96th birthday of renowned sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar (died in 2012), whose association with Beatle George Harrison first introduced the mainstream western world to Indian music and culture. Back when I was a young Beatles fan, I became infatuated with Shankar's music because of George Harrison's musical dalliance with him. I persuaded my parents to buy me a sitar, which I learned well...

    London Mayor Boris Johnson wrote an op-ed piece in The Telegraph concerning President Obama’s future visit to the U.K., where he'll attempt to persuade the British people to stay in the European Union (EU). Needless to say, Johnson’s words were not complimentary. In the lengthy statement, Johnson wrote: Sometime in the next couple of months, we are told that President Obama himself is going to arrive in this country, like some deus ex machina, to pronounce on the matter. Air Force One will touch down; a lectern with the presidential seal will be erected. The British people will be told...

    Östersund, Sweden, is the type of place where you leave your doors unlocked and you walk about the streets at night without a worry. Things are changing in the small town in northern Sweden, and police are now warning residents, especially women, not to walk alone at night. As Gates of Vienna reports, “Everything has changed since the arrival of ‘refugees’ at asylum centers that are popping up like mushrooms all over the Swedish landscape, even in the most rural areas.” Since mid-February, six violent crimes – including rape and attempted rape – have been committed by men of “foreign...

    03/02/2016 10:12:41 AM PST · by Maceman · 50 replies
    I'm listening to Rush, and he just mentioned his "Operation Chaos" in 2008. Rush said that after McCain already had the nomination sewn up, the "Operation Chaos" plan was to have Republicans register as Democrats and vote for Hillary in the remaining Democrat primaries to keep Obama from winning the nomination. My recollection is quite the opposite -- that "Operation Chaos" was about have Republicans vote for Obama in the Democrat primaries because there was no way Obama could win the general election. Am I wrong? Am I mis-remembering, or is Rush re-writing history?

The big, set-piece battle of the Republican primary is very nearly over – but the guerilla war against Donald Trump may have just begun. Trump is poised to seize the Republican nomination today if the Super Tuesday polls prove predictive – but the spirits of the candidates he’s brutalized, ridiculed and (nearly) beaten are likely to haunt and harass him for the next eight months. And Ted Cruz –clinging to hopes that a win in home-state Texas would forestall an Alamo moment...

Video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORrCKtOso3M The end of the video may irritate a lot of Trump supporters, but I think she sees him more realistically than those who support him unconditionally and, if I may be so bold, completely uncritically. I also enjoy this earlier one from a few years ago on Tolerating Intolerance, before she started doing the Daily Sunny series.

This is a subject that is too important to rely on opinion polls, which are skewed by individual bias and political views.

If we just have to suck it up and accept the situation because there is no viable solution, so be it. But is that really the case? Can nothing be done to get rid of these character interlopers?

    OK. So you're a hard-working employee, and naturally your employer withholds your payroll taxes and sends the money to the feds. So then at tax time, you fill out your return and you write in the amount of taxes you owe. If you've overpaid, you get a tax refund. Now if you're overpaying the withholding tax, and due a tax refund, then aren't you in effect making a loan to the federal government for the amount of your tax refund. Now isn't that actually an interest-free loan to the Feds? They get to use your money, which you didn't owe...

But the Duxbury resident said the impromptu experiment led to a meaningful series of conversations about religion, politics, history, and sports. It was an experience that, even in a time of prejudice against Muslims, showed Haydar that "the community is loving." "We just wanted to talk to people and we didn’t see any harm in doing that," said Haydar. "We are just...
