    Coach is Right ^ | 12/17/14 | Michael D. Shaw
    Following the assassination of JFK in November, 1963, the word “conspiracy” would enter common parlance. Defined as “A secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful” [Oxford Dictionaries], the term leaves plenty of room for interpretation. At the very least, who decides what is “unlawful” or “harmful”? How can we be sure that the entity determining this is not itself a conspiracy? As the kids might say, “How meta can you get?” In the health field, most alleged conspiracies involve either a major life-threatening illness that supports lucrative therapies, or a chronic condition in which conventional allopathic...

    Allahu Akbar. Sydney terrorist Sheik Haron Monis called out Barack Obama in 2008. He warned Obama during his campaign to not hide his religion. Canada Free Press reported: Among those who saw Barack Hussein Obama as an “apostate” for denying his religion as an Islamist, when he first ran as president in 2008, was the man who was to become the terrorist who killed two innocent hostages, injuring four others at the Sydney Lindt Cafe on Sunday. Signing his name as “Sheik Haron” and writing “Dear Brother Barack Obama” in the salutation of his letter, Man Haron Monis warned Obama...

    I hate Republicans. I can’t stand the thought of having to spend the next two years watching Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa or any of the legions of other blowhards denying climate change, thwarting immigration reform or championing fetal “personhood.” This loathing is a relatively recent phenomenon. Back
 in the 1970s, I worked for a Republican, Fred Lippitt, the senate minority leader in Rhode Island, and I loved him. He was a brand of Republican now extinct—a “moderate” who was fiscally conservative but progressive about women’s rights, racial justice and environmental preservation. Had he been closer to...

Just as she (or he) did in the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases, sundance is putting the professional media journalists to shame by methodically analyzing and exposing key details of the recent, still-smoldering Jessica Chambers murder caper in rural Panola County, Mississippi, apparently well before ordinary reporters or even police investigators have even begun to rub the sleep from their eyes. This time, probing deeply into the very disturbing mystery surrounding the gruesome torture and burning death last week of the blonde,...

    If you’ve been watching the news lately, you’d think that Berkeley is the national hub for anarchism. You can see photos of ski-masked anarchists all over the place. Masked bandits are breaking windows, starting bonfires, and robbing and looting banks, stores, restaurants, and the like. (1)But there is one problem with this narrative. There aren’t any anarchists in Berkeley. OK, maybe there are a few UC Berkeley professors who call themselves anarchists. But while they talk the talk, they don’t walk the walk. This elite group only gets their hands dirty when they are in their leafy backyards, composting.But after...

    The just passed $1.1 trillion Cromnibus (Continuing Resolution and Omnibus) check float that successfully got through the Republican controlled US House contains language that could gut pension plans, according to analyses by both conservative and leftist web writers. “The pension provision was made public late Tuesday night,” says a web source that blasts efforts to write down public pension allotments. (1) Mike Adams of Health Ranger warns that “all the pension benefits that have been promised government retirees are about to be stolen back from retirees.” (2) Quoting a WaPo article, Adams also points out that “the proposal would torpedo...

    The federal government and the Obama administration are under fire for a variety of unconstitutional programs aimed at both militarizing and controlling local police and law enforcement, including supplying a vast array of sophisticated U.S. Defense Department “weapons of war” to city and county governments. Billions of dollars in military equipment has already been handed to municipal police departments and county sheriffs’ offices nationwide under the rapidly expanding federal schemes, but concerns from across the political spectrum are growing quickly as well. This year alone, over 150 so-called “mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles,” or MRAPs, used by U.S. forces in Iraq, were...

    As the protest over his death has reached London, we can say that what happened to Eric Garner, whatever his faults, is certainly, tragically terrible. If I had been a police officer I probably would have stopped holding him down when I heard "I can’t breathe!", but then I'm not a police officer used to dealing with criminals lying all the time, including Garner himself who - as is shown in a distressing video that includes his altercation with the police before his arrest - had possibly been lying to the police until a few seconds earlier, when he...
  • Rolling Stone UVA RAPE story is identical to Senate testimony held on June 26 2014

    One of the student survivors I worked with, Jenna*, was gang-raped by five fraternity men early in her freshman year. Despite the severity of the assault and injuries she sustained, Jenna still experienced a feeling of personal responsibility. Looking for affirmation, she sought out peers and told her story. Sadly, each and every one of the friends she reached out to responded with varying denials of her experience; these responses worsened her feelings of self-blame – that she must be confused because that fraternity “is full of great guys”; that she must have made them think she was “down for...

    Coach is Right ^ | 12/12/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The early 20th century sociologist Emile Durkheim’s theory about the divide between the greater society and some individuals still holds up. Durkheim called this condition “anomie” and described it as “a condition in which society provides little moral guidance to individuals.” He saw anomie as a, “breakdown of social bonds between an individual and the community…..rejection of self-regulatory values.” As Durkheim saw those who had fallen into anomie, they were “deranged and had an insatiable will.” Were he alive today Durkheim would recognize the mismatch between societal standards and the non-existent standards of the “Ferguson/Occupy/Garner” protestors who are running through...

    Why can't the majority of black people and the rioters accept that the reason blacks are much more likely to get into trouble with the police is because they are much more likely to commit criminal acts, both serious and petty, and the reason they are much more likely to be harmed is because of the way they interact with the police, resisting arrest or even assaulting the officers? The question is rhetorical. They don't accept this because it's always difficult for every human being to recognise one's faults - or, as in this case, the faults of the...

    For nearly ten years economic forecaster Martin Armstrong sat in a federal prison. He had not be charged with any crime. He was never given a trial. They simply arrested him, seized his life’s work, and threw away the key. Why? Because according to many in the global trading community he had devised a computer model that was capable of coalescing and analyzing thousands of years of economic, political and financial data. The system he had built was so “intelligent” that it allowed his firm Princeton Economics to literally predict the rise and fall of entire nations. Some call it...

    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson testified before the House of Representatives on December 2 that he thinks it's a "bad idea" for Congress to consider a short-term funding bill in lieu of full funding for his department, so that it can implement the stunningly broad sweep of "executive actions" on immigration announced by the president during a nationally televised speech on November 20. He may think so, but it's not at all clear why the House should adopt that view given the executive branch usurpation of authorities granted to the legislature under Article I of the Constitution,...

The street demonstrations against the Orban administration which are taking place in these days are useful to the European Union and the United States who aim to carry out a coup d'état. Why?

Cops don’t prowl our streets looking for someone to murder. Eric Garner made a conscious decision to raise his 32nd...

    The death of Eric Garner has stirred the emotions of many, as have previous such instances of conflict with law enforcement. As a result of that, government officials are already talking about reviews of existing procedures and even looking at new laws to regulate certain tactics during arrests. In a way, no matter what you may think of either Garner’s behavior or of the officer’s methods during the encounter, it could be said that the freelance cigarette salesman may wind up being an agent of change in one form or another. Unfortunately, some writers tend toward hyperbole at times, and...

Smearing the Texas Republican as unhinged and paranoid is a favorite of Matthews. This time, the host lashed out against Cruz's opposition to Barack Obama's executive order amnesty. At 7:35, Matthews jeered, "Big surprise there. Joe McCarthy is at it again." Five minutes later, at 7:40, the cable host ranted about "this plan by the new Joe McCarthy which is always to blame the government as lawless." Repeating himself, he wondered of Cruz, "Where is he...

According to a report in The College Fix, University of Missouri students organizing a “die-in” to protest recent events in Ferguson recently won the honor of having a variety of classes effectively cancelled in order to allow maximum participation. There is just one problem – the protests organizers humbly requested that “only people of color” be allowed to join in the demonstrations. “During the demonstration we will...

    This essay does not claim all Blacks are criminals, but does point out that Blacks have been disproportionality attacking police officers. Blacks in America have been at war with our police for at least forty years. This war has ebbed and reignited from time to time but never really ended. The spoils of this war are far too valuable to the Democrats to ever let it end. During the years 2011 and 2012 at least 58 police officers were killed in arrest confrontation situations. The FBI tells us 28% of the cop killers were Black which means that 13.2% of...

It appears the writer only spoke with the alleged victim “Jackie.” Both conservative and liberal media members have questioned the article and its authenticity.

It wasn’t until 1913 that the 17thAmendment was passed, granting American voters the constitutional right of directly electing their senators.While this important amendment may seem innocuous, the reality is that few other changes to our Constitution have had the same detrimental effect on our nation than this single, nearly forgotten alteration.The passage of the 17th Amendment was driven largely by the populist movement of the...

    To anyone who has been paying attention, it should be obvious by now that America is hardly a family-nation of diverse people united by common values. In fact, bitter divisions among the American people are the rule rather than the exception, with racial disharmony among the most divisive. In 2008, many liberal pundits hailed the election of Barack Obama as a positive sign that racial barriers between black and white Americas were finally starting to give way to a spirit of cooperation and healing. Unfortunately, those high hopes from six years ago have been dashed and replaced with even more...

    Almost twenty years ago, American philologists were treated to an amazing statement in the political realm: then-President Bill Clinton answered a question with the words “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” As shocking as that statement was in context, coming from a leading Democrat, it was also something of a Freudian slip, as Bill Clinton gave away quite a secret in that brief moment.

I have no argument with a longtime and loved celebrity striving to keep his image free from such smears, but the accusations are gaining traction.  NBC has...

Miller admits that the George HW Bush administration influenced the outcome of the 1992 election to bring Yitzchak Rabin to power over Yitzchak Shamir, but he claims that's because the US set up the environment...

    It’s not unusual that committees formed in Washington, D.C. should seek to expand the boundaries of their authority and the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) of 2015 has done just that. Created by Congress in 1980, the purpose of the DGAC is to provide guidelines, updated every 5 years, through which the federal government may “help Americans eat healthier so they [might] live longer.” But Committee Chair Barbara Millen has decided to expand DGAC authority from food and diet to the consideration of all things which are health-related. To Millen, this means the Committee should take on the issue of...

    It would be one thing if those demanding Officer Darren Wilson's head on a platter were actually protesting that a good, law-abiding person was martyred by a jack-booted racist cop who "gunned him down" as the media is fond of describing it. Instead, they are a [mostly] black mob calling for a lynching based on race rather than evidence -- and completely missing the absurd irony in this. The media, race-hustlers and agendized politicians are politically and economically invested in sowing racial discord by fraudulently racializing incidents between police [or law-abiding citizens] and criminals. Similar to the leaders of Islamic...

    ...The article alleges a truly horrifying gang rape at a UVA fraternity, and it has understandably shocked the campus and everyone who’s read it. The consequences have been pretty much instantaneous: The fraternity involved has voluntarily suspended its operations (without admitting that the incident happened); UVA’s president is promising an investigation and has since suspended all fraternity charters on campus; the alumni are in an uproar; the governor of Virginia has spoken out; students, particularly female students, are furious, and the concept of “rape culture” is further established. Federal intervention is sure to follow. The only thing is…I’m not sure...

    I never thought I'd be an open carry advocate. However, I'm a firm believer in working within the American political system in order to change the status quo. If the 2nd Amendment is cherished by millions of Americans, then why not use it to further certain liberal ideals? Protecting African-American lives and alleviating tensions between the black community and law enforcement should be a top priority of all Americans and especially Congress, however this is not the case. It speaks volumes that African-Americans vote over 90% Democrat during national elections, yet our future nominee in 2016 still hasn't addressed an...

    All day people gathered, waiting, daring to hope, that maybe this time black lives would matter. Minutes passed. Then hours. And, as darkness descended on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, the now enormous crowd continued to wait patiently -- trying its best to remain optimistic. Perhaps, despite so many decades of history, black people really could find justice in the American legal system. That such a faith still flickered was, itself, remarkable. Everyone standing outside of the Ferguson police station awaiting news on whether the grand jury would indict police officer Darren Wilson well remembered what happened on February 26,...

    Sixty percent of occupants of HUD properties in California, a Democrat bastion of liberal insanity, are living there illegally according to an internet email making the rounds of conservatives. While these illegals are enjoying free housing, gratis US taxpayers, about 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County live in garages. Other illegals reside in the state’s large prison system at various levels of detention, comprising a 35% inmate total on the public dole because of their crimes, arrests, and other various nefarious behaviors. Amazingly, this web report, which is attributed to local Los Angeles media outlets, says OVER 75% of...

    Lyle Denniston, the National Constitution Center’s constitutional literacy adviser, tackles a weighty issue: the FDA’s constitutional ability to mandate calorie counts on restaurant menus nationwide. “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today finalized…rules requiring that calorie information be listed on menus and menu boards in chain restaurants [and] similar retail food establishments….The menu labeling final rule applies to restaurants and similar retail food establishments if they are part of a chain of 20 or more locations, doing business under the same name and offering for sale substantially the same menu items. Covered food establishments will be required to clearly and...

    Just because there’s no evidence that “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” ever happened, and plenty of evidence to the contrary, that doesn’t mean you should change your opinion. Why let the facts get in the way of a good story? The Smoking Gun: Included in the grand jury material released tonight after the announcement that no charges would be filed in the Michael Brown killing is a handwritten witness account stating that the teenager charged at Officer Darren Wilson “like a football player. Head down.” The unidentified witness wrote that the 18-year-old Brown “has his arms out with attitude,” while “The...

    Nancy Grace joined CNN’s Brooke Baldwin to discuss the Ferguson grand jury decision Wednesday afternoon and she had a lot to say about Officer Darren Wilson’s version of the story, which has finally come out through his testimony and interviews. According to her, the whole thing “doesn’t add up.” “When people say, it does not add up, I will tell you what doesn’t add up, these photos,” Grace said, holding up copies pictures of Wilson’s face after the shooting. “I’ve looked at a them, I’ve studied them, and I was expecting to see his face mangled.” She added, “He doesn’t...
