    You won't see the news in the mainstream media. After all, this is not a priest. 44-year-old Stefan Johansson, former President of the RFSL (Riksförbundet för homosexuellas, bisexuellas och transpersoners rättigheter), or the National Association for the Rights of Homosexuals, Bisexuals and Transsexuals, was sentenced on 24 October to five years in prison and ordered to pay 60,000 euros for pain and suffering caused by rape, pimping and paedophilia. Founded in 1950, the the National Association for the Rights of Homosexuals, Bisexuals and Transsexuals is Sweden's largest organization of its kind, with more than 6,000 members. The RFSL was...

    This week the AFL-CIO threw its considerable weight behind Democrat-turned-independent Greg Orman in his bid for U.S. Senate in Kansas. This came on the heels of a debate that was all about defining who Greg Orman really is: ... The AFL-CIO won't run TV ads for Orman, spokesman Jeff Hauser said, but his campaign will now be incorporated into the union's extensive ground game there. The AFL-CIO had previously endorsed Kansas's Democratic Party's gubernatorial nominee, Paul Davis, who is locked into one of the country's most competitive gubernatorial contests with incumbent Republican Gov. Sam Brownback. During Wednesday's debate, incumbent Sen....

    Canada’s largest mental health and addiction treatment and research centre is calling for the legalization of marijuana, with strict controls that would govern who could buy weed, from where, and in what quantity. In a policy statement released Thursday, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto said cannabis should be sold through a government-controlled monopoly and with limited availability and an age limit, possibly through outlets similar to provincially operated liquor stores. “Legalization means that we remove all penalties for cannabis possession and use by adults,” said Jurgen Rehm, director of social and epidemiological research at CAMH. “Canada’s...

McDonald was merely introduced as a “critic,” with no ideological label, and Avila never verbally said the name of his group.

Rick Perry was indicted by a Texas grand jury for vetoing funding for the state’s public integrity unit, unless the lead prosecutor resigned following her drunk driving arrest. Since the news of Perry’s indictment charge broke on Aug. 15, none of the network morning or evening news broadcasts have mentioned the Soros connection, or mentioned Texans for Public Justice at all. Naturally, this piece of information is going completely unreported by the mainstream media. When it comes to funding, liberals...

    PARIS -- Billionaire Hungarian-American oligarch George Soros is an extremely concerned humanitarian who can be counted on to put his considerable bank balance where his concerns are. Lately, those concerns have included Ukraine and other former Soviet satellite states; Syria; immigration rights in America; the U.S. banking system; and the Great Lakes region of Africa, where all the mining opportunities just happen to be. Perhaps he could lay off the generosity long enough for us to recover from it all. Humanitarianism and charity can't always be taken at face value, if only because there is no better front for...

That’s exactly why I support him in Colorado’s June 24 GOP primary election for governor. A fear-mongering ad campaign by the left-wing group “ProgressNow,” which is funded by billionaire George Soros, hyperventilated last week that “Tancredo believes Obamacare is a scam.” Gasp! “Scam” is putting it politely, of course.

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Jed Babbin. It’s not unusual for left-wing billionaire activist George Soros to be opposed or even protested by conservatives. But when Soros is attacked by the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, it’s nothing other than political fratricide. The goal of the BDS movement is to stop investment in Israel and keep countries from importing products from Israel. There is more than a little irony in the announcement last Wednesday that the BDS Movement is supposedly boycotting Soros and his network of funds and foundations because of his investment in SodaStream and...

    A plan, now stealthily making its way through state legislatures with astonishing speed, would junk the Electoral College and award the presidency to the winner of the popular vote. The plan involves an Interstate Compact where states would commit to select electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner regardless of how their own state voted. When enough states pass this law, sufficient to cast 270 votes which is the majority of the Electoral College, it will take effect. So far, nine states and the District of Columbia, casting 136 electoral votes, have joined. This is halfway to...

Just the name of such an idea alone gives just cause for concern since it implies that our nation has a party running this nation behind the shadows! However, it is not such a "Shadow Party," since many people associated with it have direct, or indirect, links back to none other than George Soros. Let us begin by showing just where the...

    Lawmakers line up behind plan that dumps Electoral College without constitutional amendment The National Popular Vote effort, which could see the 14 states with the largest populations decide the presidency, is more than halfway to its goal of legally bypassing the Electoral College established in the Constitution. Last week, the Maine state Senate voted in support of the plan one week after both houses of the New York legislature overwhelmingly supported it. Now the governors of both states will need to decide whether to formally back the National Popular Vote, or NPV. The plan is more than halfway to its...

    Some folks who’ve had enough of Reid’s shenanigans are starting to weigh in, such as American Commitment President Phil Kerpen. His group is sponsoring an Internet-only ad buy – which is the way smart people are starting to do things – attacking the alliance between the Steyers and Reid. The ad uses footage of Reid saying nasty things about conservatives Charles and David Koch, two men whom the Nevada Democrat has alleged more than once have the entire Republican establishment in their hip pocket, but in a way that cleverly hints that such things could just as easily and more...

    The leader of the U.S. Senate repeatedly has attacked two private U.S. citizens for using their money to advance the conservative causes in which they believe. Reid's latest attack on "shadow billionaires" David and Charles Koch came Thursday, at a news conference to push legislation raising the minimum wage.

    The Weekly Standard ^ | April 2, 2014 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid's website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don't pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White...

    Power Line ^ | March 26, 2014 | John Hinderaker
    A major development occurred today in the scandal surrounding the Washington Post’s attempt to advance Democratic Party talking points by falsely linking Koch Industries to the Keystone Pipeline. In the unlikely event that you are not already familiar with the story, you should begin by reading this post and this one, as well as the one from last October where I dismantled the International Forum on Globalization report that was the basis for the Washington Post’s story of March 20. The facts, very briefly, are these: Koch Industries has no interest in the Keystone Pipeline; it has not lobbied in...
  • Ukraine to hike domestic gas prices by 50%

    03/26/2014 1:42:03 PM PDT · by Count of Monte Fisto · 14 replies
    Ukraine is raising the price of gas for domestic consumers by more than 50 per cent from May 1 and will implement further rises under a fixed timetable until 2018, an official of state energy company Naftogaz said on Wednesday. The step, which will be widely unpopular with ordinary Ukrainians who have grown used to subsidized gas prices from the Soviet era, were taken in response to demands by the International Monetary Fund.

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | March 13, 2014 | Joe Newby
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has spent the last several days attacking the Koch brothers in an obvious attempt to demonize the conservative billionaires in true Alinsky fashion. But given that the Koch brothers have been targeted with death threats by Reid’s fellow travelers on the left, and given the frequency and tenor of Reid’s recent attacks, one question needs to be asked: Does Harry Reid want the Koch brothers murdered? We did a search on Twitter to see what the rabid leftists there have said in the last couple of months. Here’s just a sample: Jordan Kratz @gorehound13...
