    In May, a fight between two rival motorcycle clubs turned into a bloodbath in Waco, Texas. Nine people were shot dead, and at least 20 were injured. In the end, 177 people were arrested and jailed on charges of engaging in organized crime. But many of them say they had nothing to do with these so-called outlaw motorcycle clubs — and nothing to do with the violence. Among them are Walt and Ester Weaver. Walt says he's stunned by the way authorities handled the situation. "Two months ago if you'd told me this could happen to this many people in...

    Conservative Review ^ | 06/29/15 | Dan Bongino
    Is it Time for Civil Disobedience? “Is this the act of a government worthy of our respect?” When the government rules by illegitimate means, is it legitimate to peacefully stand in defiance and disobey? The answer to this question is a reluctant “yes.” I have thought about this question for a long time and, as a former police officer and federal agent who pledged his life to upholding and enforcing the law, I take this call to action very seriously. In a piece (http://www.bornfreeamericanwoman.com/blog/) out yesterday by Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party, a group victimized by the IRS...

    A Nobel Prize-winning scientist who supported President Barack Obama has said that he does not believe global warming is a problem, and has openly criticized the president for his position on the issue. "I would say that basically global warming is a non-problem," Dr. Ivar Giaever announced during a speech at the 65th Nobel Laureate Conference in Lindau, Germany, last week, according to Climate Depot. Quoting Obama's warning that "no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change," Giaever said it was a "ridiculous statement." "I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you're wrong....

    Independence Day is traditionally a time for celebration, relaxation and gratitude for the liberties declared to be universal rights on July 4, 1776. Maybe it’s time to also remember — and celebrate — that while our liberties and our independence may have been declared in 1776, they were secured for posterity by the blood of patriots, not the pens and inkblots of judges and politicians. As a poet of the ’60s once said, the times they are a-changing. Indeed.

She no longer wanted any part of the plot to have him killed at the hands of a convicted murderer who would soon break out of Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. Lyle Mitchell was a decent and loving husband, she thought, who had never done her any harm. He deserved better. In a matter of hours, inmate Richard W. Matt planned to escape from the...

The Detroit native who is a commuter student pursuing a master's degree at Saginaw Valley State University believes he did not commit a crime, since he pulled over in a Sam's Club parking lot about 1.5 miles up the road from where police activated their lights. The Saginaw County prosecutor's office disagrees, however. Wallace faces one felony count of fleeing and eluding. "I live in Detroit, and I know...

Francisco Sanchez (San Francisco Police Dept.)

Trump issued a lengthy — nearly 900 word — statement invoking the death of a San Francisco woman shot and killed last week by a suspect who had previously been deported to Mexico five times. "This is merely one of thousands of similar incidents throughout the United States," Trump said Monday. "In other words, the worst elements in Mexico are being pushed into the United States by the Mexican government." The 2016 Republican presidential candidate said Mexican...

A 27-year-old man was left bloodied and unconscious after being brutally assaulted by an unruly mob in the streets of Cincinnati on Saturday night. Though the official police incident report referred to the July Fourth attack as “anti-white,” Capt. Mike Neville backed off the claim on Monday and said it’s not yet clear if race was a factor. Neville said the officer who filed the incident report felt the attack was racially motivated because the victim, Christopher McKnight, was beaten by a group of people from...

This is the ideology of sodomism. Sodomism is the ideology of homosexual superiority, in which the homosexuals desire to usher in — through propaganda, violence and state coercion — a utopia in which homosexuality is seen as a supreme ideal, and those who believe in the conjugal union as...

The judge will now comply with a McLennan County, Texas, order that ends on July 8th, the much criticized practice of selecting “pick-a-pal” grand juries. This grand jury will likely decide the fate of some, if not all, of the 177 bikers arrested on May 17th after the Twin Peaks shootout.

It is interesting to compare the statements made by Donald Trump to actual crime facts and statistics in the U.S. His statements have been portrayed as racist and generally unbefitting a presidential candidate.

    One of the great things about America is that a person accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proved guilty. No matter how many witnesses saw Francisco Sanchez gun down 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco, he still has the presumption of innocence. That's why I'm pleased that Mr. Sanchez's side of the story has finally gotten out. And, I believe, in the interest of fairness, we should present it: 1) The sea lions are to blame. Sanchez reportedly first told police he was shooting at sea lions.

Instead of explosive debate on the divisive issue of guns, the page features thousands of mothers who are concerned with mostly one thing: protecting their families. However, the article also cites a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health who claimed there is “no good evidence that having a gun is going to make you any safer.” In fact, citing a study regularly used by anti-gun advocates, he claimed owning a gun makes households more unsafe.

    In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some eight million of them lived in the slaveholding states. The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000 individuals who owned slaves (1). Even if all slaveholders had been white, that would amount to only 1.4 percent of whites in the country (or 4.8 percent of southern whites owning one or more slaves). The rare instances when the ownership of slaves by free Negroes is...

    A federal court has declared that former Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson lied about her personal knowledge of certain facts and misrepresented negotiations between her legal team and lawyers representing her fellow Supreme Court justices. “[T]he Abrahamson affidavit contains some statements that are not based on personal knowledge and that falsely portray the negotiation of the stipulated facts,” wrote Judge James Peterson in a June 10 decision striking portions of Abrahamson’s filing from the court record. Peterson was appointed to the federal bench by President Barack Obama. Since April, when state voters ratified a constitutional amendment changing how...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder said today that a “possibility exists” for the Justice Department to cut a deal with former NSA contractor Edward Snowden that would allow him to return to the United States from Moscow. In an interview with Yahoo News, Holder said “we are in a different place as a result of the Snowden disclosures” and that “his actions spurred a necessary debate” that prompted President Obama and Congress to change policies on the bulk collection of phone records of American citizens.

    Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson declined to say Monday whether cities offering "sanctuary" to dangerous illegal immigrants are posing a safety threat in the United States, just days after a criminal alien who was given sanctuary in San Francisco shot and killed a California woman. Johnson was asked if the death of Kathryn Steinle last Thursday proved that sanctuary cities were part of the problem when it comes to removing dangerous immigrants. But Johnson didn't answer directly, and instead said generally that the federal government is slowly starting to work more effectively with state and local governments on deportation matters....

    San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is the latest to weigh in on the immigration debate centered around Kathryn Steinle’s fatal shooting at Pier 14. In a statement released Monday, Lee described feeling "deeply saddened" by the "tragic and senseless death," adding that his "thoughts and prayers" are with the 32-year-old Pleasanton woman's family. "I have spoken with Kathryn’s family, and they would like everyone to remember their daughter for the wonderful person that she was," he said....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)On Monday’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor,” host Bill O’Reilly took real estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s side in the immigration. O’Reilly said Trump was correct on two calls – the wall on the southern border he had proposed and who was responsible for the death of Kate Steinle, which was the result of murder by an illegal immigrant that had been deported five times. “So Trump is correct in saying that only a massive wall will stop the chaos and even then drugs and people will get through although not to the extent they do now,”...

    As Western Journalism reported last week, pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has vowed to remove the image of the Confederate flag from the classic General Lee car he bought after the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard ceased production. Watson has said he’ll replace the Confederate flag atop the iconic Dodge Charger with an American flag — a move that drew a fair amount of criticism on social media from folks who believe the golfer caved to the PC purge some argue is now in full force. The cable network TV Land has also shown its PC...

    For weeks, dozens of construction workers from Latin America have streamed onto the site of the Old Post Office Pavilion in downtown Washington and taken pride in their work building one of the city’s newest luxury hotels. But that job site is now laden with tension after the man behind the project — billionaire developer Donald Trump — put himself at the center of the nation’s debate over illegal immigration. Trump garnered headlines — and prompted several business associates to sever relations with him — when he launched his bid for the Republican presidential nomination last month with a controversial...

    Cops are hunting a group of men behind an anti-white attack on Staten Island, officials said Saturday. Seven black men called a 28-year-old man “white bread” and other insults as they threatened him on Vanderbilt Ave. and Targee St. in Fox Hills about 3 p.m. on June 19, cops said. The group then chased after the white victim, punching and kicking him. They struck him with a milk crate, a fluorescent light bulb, a bottle and other garbage they picked up, officials said. The victim managed to escape his attackers, suffering only minor wounds. The NYPD’s hate crimes task force...

    The owner of a local landscaping business who was jailed with 176 other bikers after the deadly May 17 Twin Peaks shootout has dismissed his federal civil rights lawsuit against the city of Waco and McLennan County but says he plans to refile it. Matthew Alan Clendennen, 30, of Hewitt, a member of the Scimitars Motorcycle Club, claimed in the lawsuit that he was wrongfully jailed and that his business has suffered since his arrest. Clendennen’s attorney, Clint Broden, said he filed a request to dismiss the suit for procedural reasons only. He said he already has amended the original...

    In the 2016 race, June belonged to two outsiders who could not be more dissimilar. Bernie Sanders is a socialist senator from Vermont and Donald Trump a celebrity capitalist and legendary entrepreneur and builder. What do they have in common? Both have tapped into what the bases of their respective parties believe is wrong with America. Bernie is the Willie Nelson of national politics, a leftist voice of a working class whose jobs and factories have been exported and whose wages have stagnated as banksters and the Davos-Doha crowd amass mammoth fortunes by playing games of three-dimensional Monopoly. The 73-year-old...
