  • Dem Candidate for NM Gov. Endorsed by Weather Underground Member

    New Mexico Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alan Webber has a history of radical views, including ties to the Weather Underground and urging empathy for a child sex offender. Webber has raised the most money of Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Gov. Susana Martinez, and is competing against four other Democrats, including Lawrence Rael, who exaggerated his resume on his campaign website. The primary will be held on June 3. Mark Rudd, a leader and founder of the domestic terrorist group the Weather Underground, which has advocated for the violent overthrow of the United States and committed multiple bombings of public...

    Complaints from the neighbors brought building inspectors and the police to a row of connected town houses in San Gabriel, California – all that noise and all those pregnant women coming and going at all hours of the day and night. When the inspectors entered one kitchen they found a row of bassinets holding several infants who were being attended by a nurse. The cops had uncovered another maternity house that caters to the growing trade in “maternity tourism.” “These were not women living in squalor – it was a well taken care of place and clean, but there were...

    George Zimmerman had been elected and deputized by his racially-diverse community to enforce their collective right to home security and property protection. He was put on trial for the shooting death of a black 17-year-old named Trayvon Martin on the evening of February 26th, 2012. The moment America got the false impression that Zimmerman was “white” and probably a Jew, the very same racial racketeers who had raised full-throated “stand your ground” and “castle doctrine” defenses for John White, a black man who shot to death an unarmed 17-year-old white boy in Miller Place, New York back in 2006, were...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06/27/2013 | Brendan Bordelon
    A secretive data collection program run by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau allows private contractors access to millions of Americans’ personal financial information, according to a government accountability group. The information may also be shared with other federal agencies. Documents obtained by Washington-based Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act illustrate the cost and scope of the program, which business groups and some Republican lawmakers have assailed as invasive and potentially illegal. The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported how the CFPB compelled banks to comply with the program by making successful passage of routine inspections conditional on supplying...

    BBC ^ | 20 March 2013
    French police have searched the Paris apartment of IMF chief Christine Lagarde, as they investigate her role in awarding financial compensation to businessman Bernard Tapie in 2008. As finance minister, she referred his long-running dispute with bank Credit Lyonnais to an arbitration panel, which awarded him 400m euros (£340m) damages. Mr Tapie was a supporter of ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy. Critics say she abused her authority but Ms Lagarde denies any wrongdoing. "This search will help uncover the truth, which will contribute to exonerating my client from any criminal wrongdoing," Ms Lagarde's lawyer, Yves Repiquet, told the Reuters news agency. The...

    After centuries of mischief making, homosexuals would have us believe that they have abandoned their former ways and embraced domesticity. In truth, an influential minority of homosexuals have chosen to momentarily mimic heterosexual restraint for the calculated purpose of mainstreaming homosexuality. A splinter faction of gay radicals want to fix in the minds of normal heterosexuals the false notion that homosexuality is an alternative co-equal of the universal mammalian standard of species-preserving heterosexuality. This notion is nonsense. A normal heterosexual disposition is the consequence of many biological developments progressing normally. In every healthy human culture the normal inborn proclivities of...

    Imagine your seventeen-year-old daughter fighting for her life in hand-to-hand combat with battle-hardened enemy soldiers. How long would she survive? Two minutes? One minute? There is a resurgent movement to push female military personnel into ever more intimate contact with hostile forces. The few arguments mustered in support of doing this focus narrowly on manpower issues or misplaced feminist vanity. In all the literature on this subject that I have collected over several years, not once have I found a proponent of women in combat who would speak honestly about the consequences of thrusting our daughters into man-against-woman festivals of...

    Are girls with eating disorders an oppressed minority? I ask this question because the rexies are demanding some respect. ------------ If all of this is more than you can imagine, then come to terms with these historical facts: this fanciful arc of an upcoming Rise of the Rexies is exactly the pathway to “gay acceptance” that was paved by homosexual activists. This is the history of the Gay Movement. ------------ The media campaign of gay activists is modeled on a battle plan scripted by the queer theorists Marshall Kirk and Erastes Pill.

    The most destructive ideologies of modern times have favored the notion that an essential human nature does not exist or, at most, is faint and extremely elastic. The enemies of civilization must subvert the idea that humans cannot be conditioned to accept any behavior, no matter how grotesque. These practitioners of human desensitization understand that getting humans to accept a repugnant behavior requires a slow and incremental and persistent exposure to behaviors that were previously felt to be disgusting. The enemies of civilization believe that humans as humans share no guiding moral sensibility. “Little by little we were taught all...

    The Monster of Bath Andrew Kehoe was an intelligent man with a prickly disposition. Neighbors recalled how Kehoe had shot a neighbor’s dog to death after it wandered onto his property and annoyed him by barking. Kehoe had beaten one of his horses to death when its performance displeased him. Andrew Kehoe was impatient with anyone who contradicted him. Mr. Kehoe had studied electrical engineering; he had worked as an electrician. In 1919 he and his wife had purchased a farm outside Bath, Michigan, about ten miles northeast of Lansing. Kehoe had a reputation for thriftiness and in 1924 he...

    Before he met Michelle Robinson, Barack Obama had no traction on the streets of Chicago. In a head-to-head contest against Bobby Rush, a charter member of the Black Panther Party, Barack Obama suffered a painful ego deflation. In their competition in the 2000 Democrat primary for Illinois’ first congressional district Bobby Rush had deftly whitewashed Barack as a creature of white culture – of his white mother and his white grandparents, his white girlfriends and his white and Jewish advisors and benefactors far from the gritty South Ward in rich-and-comfortable Hyde Park. “He went to Harvard and became an educated...

    Armed with the intimidating powers of the SEC, the IRS and the Justice Department, which can fine, audit and indict citizens into oblivion, President Obama has taken to singling out the private-citizen donors of his opponents for special abuse. For example: One of Obama’s campaign websites posted a blurb titled “Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” which named eight private citizens, describing all of them as having “less-than-reputable records” and accusing them of being “on the wrong side of the law” and of profiting at “the expense of so many Americans.” The “crimes” that Team Obama refers...

    We are all aware of the slippery slope that the profligate spending of our politicians has put our nation on, and those who are honest enough to admit it know that the mighty United States of America is headed for a fiscal disaster that, if our course is not drastically altered, will shake the very foundations of our stability and reduce the greatest nation the world has ever known to a Greece-like shell complete with social upheaval and worthless currency.

    Late night comics love Joe Biden because he relieves them of having to make fun of Barack Obama. Making jokes about Obama makes them very uncomfortable. So never mind that Mr. Obama told us that there were 57 states or that he doesn’t speak “Austrian.” Never mind that Obama called the Malvinas the Maldives during a visit to South America or that he pronounces the word corpsman “corpse man” or that he lamented the atomic bomb that fell “on Pearl Harbor,” or that he told a shocked audience that 10,000 people had been killed that very day in a Kansas...

    Instead of using federal powers to uphold laws protecting our nation’s borders, the Obama administration has chosen to use the full weight of the federal government to attack the state of Arizona for attempting to legally enforce standing immigration laws. This is consistent with Team Obama’s heavy-handed dictatorial tyranny over the states and the people, which has manifest in several full frontal assaults on both state and individual rights. But there is much more to it than meets the eye for most American citizens. It is all part of a grand plan for leftist political domination… Three Sanctuary States –...

    Have you noticed it’s getting a lot more expensive to drive your car and heat your home? Do you think it’s just a coincidence, or due to the turmoil in the Middle East? That may have something to do with it, but remember, before he became President, Barack Obama stated in no uncertain terms that energy prices needed to skyrocket to force us into using alternative energy sources. He didn’t state at the time that his friends on the left would profit from the alternative energy he’s pushing, but we all know it’s true. The Washington Examiner‘s latest editorial details...

    Once Washington’s most notorious lobbyist, Jack Abramoff is now a repentant campaigner for cleaning up corruption in Washington, and he gives some of the credit for his turnaround to talk radio host Michael Savage. In an interview on “The Savage Nation” last night, Savage noted that Abramoff wrote in his book “Capitol Punishment” of having a revelation during his 43 months in prison in which he came to acknowledge he had lost perspective and did wrong. “Yes, yes, it actually is true, and, frankly, part of the ability to rethink was listening to you every night in jail, as a...

    On March 9, Lyndon LaRouche intervened in the economic crisis to propose a plan that is as simple and direct, as it is potentially effective in its execution: a sales or transaction tax on the turnover of ``financial derivative'' securities or financial instruments. Each time such a security or instrument is traded, he said, it should be taxed at 0.1 percent of its face value, or, as it is called in the derivatives trade, its notional principal amount. ... Talk to most people about ``derivatives'' and you pretty soon discover that they have no idea what they are. Still less...

    The newest trend in American communication isn't another smartphone from Apple or Google but one of the elder statesmen of communication: Ham radio licenses are at an all time high, with over 700,000 licenses in the United States, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Ham radio first took the nation by storm nearly a hundred years ago. Last month the FCC logged 700,314 licenses, with nearly 40,000 new ones in the last five years. Compare that with 2005 when only 662,600 people hammed it up and you'll see why the American Radio Relay League -- the authority on all things...

    Who Is Elena Kagan? There was a brief period in her early 20s when Elena Kagan expressed clear and forceful opinions on matters legal and political. That window of expressiveness abruptly closed and she has been a cipher ever since. She was bright, had stellar grades, garnered glowing teacher recommendations, had boundless self-confidence and a winning personality. She is also a typical creature of the newly-emerged230 meritocratic system that now funnels bright kids onto elite college campuses. Unlike earlier generations of students who were intellectual risk takers willing to challenge authority, Kagan's cohort was more subdued, strategic and calculating. Kagan's...

His death was confirmed today by Bell Labs, in a message from its president, Jeong Kim, to employees. That message reads, in part: Dennis was well loved by his colleagues at Bell Labs, and will be greatly missed. He was truly an inspiration to all of us, not just for...

    Peruvian authorities have charged Joran van der Sloot with murder in the death of a Peruvian woman. Van der Sloot was arrested in June of last year, but was not formally charged until Thursday. Prosecutors are asking for a 30-year prison sentence and a restitution payment of $73,000 to the family of Stephany Flores. They also charged van der Sloot with theft. Charged alongside van der Sloot were three Peruvian drivers who allegedly helped him flee into Chile. Prosecutors want five-year prison sentences for them and fines of about $1,800. Flores was found dead in van der Sloot's Lima hotel...

    President Obama is inciting racial division. He rightly fears that the Democrats will suffer huge losses in November’s midterm congressional elections. Republicans are within reach of retaking control of the House of Representatives. Even the Senate may be in play. His party’s grip on power is threatened - and with it, Mr. Obama’s radical socialist agenda. Fear breeds desperation. Hence, Mr. Obama is resorting to the worst kind of demagoguery: playing the race card. In a video to Democrats, the president embraced identity politics; black, Hispanic and female voters are to be courted at the expense of white middle-class America....

Barack Obama had “finally” produced a facsimile of his birth certificate and the sages on the New York Times editorial staff were expressing their dismay that this commonsense act was somehow beneath Obama’s dignity.

    When Medicare came into existence in 1965, those opposed - including Ronald Reagan - cried of socialism and loss of freedom. President Harry S. Truman is considered the grandfather of universal healthcare, having first proposed it in 1945. "The health of American children, like their education, should be recognized as a definite public responsibility," he said. Twenty years later, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Medicare Act into law, he invited Truman, then 81 years old, to be at his side. Then LBJ enrolled Truman as the first beneficiary of the new program that provided healthcare for the 65-and-older...

Kristina Oliver, who owns Oliver Livestock Co. in Hemet, says the cathedral owes her more than $56,000. For 29 years, her family has been supplying the pageants with live animals – camels, goats, sheep, horses and donkeys – a much-touted feature of the Glory pageants. Oliver sent a letter to...

    Imagine a 3-d printer so large that it can spit out entire buildings made from stone. Sounds science fiction-y, right? But that’s exactly what designer Enrico Dini created with his prototype D-Shape printer. Dini hopes to use the printer to create buildings made of stone and eventually, moon dust. The printing process starts with a thin layer of sand. The printer then sprays the sand with magnesium-based glue from hundreds of nozzles, which binds the sand into rock. That rock is then built up layer by layer, eventually taking shape of whatever object it is destined to become, be it...
