  • Wikileaks Exposes Obama’s Phony Trade Bill…Only 5 of 29 Chapters About Trade

    Wikileaks has gotten their hands on a copy of Obama’s phony TPP trade bill. It contains 29 chapters but only 5 pertain to trade. Wikileaks will be publishing the entire bill and they have already released the chapter on Investment. It’s very interesting. It is written in a such a way as to give multinational companies a huge advantage on trade. If a public hospital is built close to a private one, the private hospital has the right to sue the country for expected losses. That is outrageous. Here is where you can find the chapter on investment: https://wikileaks.org/tpp-investment/WikiLeaks-TPP-Investment-Chapter/page-2.html The...

    TheDC ^ | 5/27/15 | Blake Neff
    A video has recently surfaced of Marilyn Mosby, the district attorney responsible for charging six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, making an appearance on the popular arbitration court series “Judge Judy” more than a decade ago. The video dates back to the early 2000s, in the show’s fifth season, when Mosby was in college and still going by her maiden name, Marilyn James. Mosby was on the program with a rather bizarre case: She was suing business owner Ryan Johnson for damages to the apartment she lived in while at college.

    A plan that will close nearly 2,000 miles of public roads that have previously been open for use by the people of Mesa County is creating a public backlash against the Grand Junction field office of the federal Bureau of Land Management. The BLM’s resource management plans (RMP) regulate the access and types of traffic allowed on roads on public lands. Road maintenance and seasonal closures are also detailed in such plans. But the most recent RMP in Mesa County indicates the BLM’s intent to limit access to public roads which have traditionally been open to motorized, horse, and foot...

The rally is set for May 30th, at the Capitol building in Salem, and will feature a host of speakers. SB 941 is the “universal background check” bill, meaning that if you want to trade guns with your next door neighbor whom you’ve known for 10 years, you must both submit yourselves to background checks and get permission from the state police before the exchange...

    Property Rights: Few have heard of Agenda 21, the U.N. plan for sustainable development that tosses property rights aside. But Alabama has, and it recently secured a victory as important as that over union power in Wisconsin. After Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's stunning triumph over the excesses and abuses of public-sector unions, the London Telegraph's James Delingpole, an indefatigable opponent of global warming fraud, opined in a piece titled, "How Wisconsin And Alabama Helped Save The World," that we should take note of "an equally important but perhaps less well-publicized victory won in the Alabama House and Senate over the...

    Texas is larger than most countries in the United Nations, some not much bigger than the postage stamps they print for collectors, but each with a vote that can cancel ours out. Texas is about to a vote against the U.N.’s sovereignty-destroying Agenda 21, so named because it claims to be setting a “sustainable growth” agenda for the 21st century. Agenda 21 is in fact a global power grab similar to climate-change treaties like the Kyoto Protocol. It uses the imaginary threat of unsustainable growth which allegedly threatens to plunder the planet’s finite resources, like climate change allegedly threatens planetary...

    It is easy to forget that, in 1991, the U.S. murder rate was well over twice what it is today. In a speech last week at Columbia University, Hillary Clinton demonstrated she doesn’t understand that ending what she called the “era of Mass Incarceration” will endanger lives. These days, it’s popular to sympathize with criminals. We saw this when Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that” and ordered police to “stand down.” We saw it again when she failed to return the governor’s calls, as he repeatedly tried to get her permission to...
  • The Lie That Creates Deep Harm: Same-Sex and Biological Parents Rear Children Equally Well

    The redefiniting of marriage allows for the creation of the social lie: “Any two people who are married can, on average, do just as good a job at rearing children as two, biological parents can.” The State demands that we all blindly believe this lie. To say "This is a lie - many of these children are hurting" is to lose your job or your business. Meanwhile, children raised by same-sex caregivers miss their bioligal parent(s) deeply. But they cannot say this with being abused. They are also more likely to have more difficult lives. Is this just? Is this...

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey's top court weighed the budget repercussions of ruling on a pension dispute between Gov. Chris Christie and public workers' unions on Wednesday while one justice wondered if the state had engaged in a "bait and switch." The state Supreme Court probed whether the state has a contractual obligation to pay what it agreed to in a 2011 pension overhaul law and tried to get lawyers from both sides to explore whether such a finding would represent an overstepping of the courts' role and put it in the middle of the state budget process every...

    Garfield County officials said Monday the Bureau of Land Management is considering even-stricter measures to protect greater sage-grouse than previously contemplated, rather than listening to concerns the county and others have raised. As a cooperating agency, the county got an advance look Friday at the revised proposal the agency is now considering. “It is very dramatic in terms of the changes (from a draft BLM proposal) that are being proposed,” Fred Jarman, the county’s community development director, told county commissioners Monday. Jarman and Garfield Commissioner Tom Jankovsky said the proposed measures are the result of directives coming from Washington, D.C....

President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray. However, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found that the...
  • The Seven Key Ways that Redefining Marriage Brings About the Decline of America

    Many people think that the resistance to redefining marriage stems from a desire to be unfair to homosexuals. It doesn’t. Resistance mainly comes from the knowledge that when the State redefines marriage then this harms the ability of heterosexuals to get married and stay married. And if redefinition harms the ability of heterosexuals to get married and stay married then children suffer. And if children suffer then society finds itself facing more social problems and financial debt. The USA declines.

But as order starts to return to the streets, and the usual political suspects lament the lack of economic prospects for the...

If political correctness wins, we all have to go around pretending - under the force of the law - that all is well and good. Meanwhile society will be slowly collapsing all around us and we, and our children, will have to suffer the increasingly poor outcomes in silence. Help.

    In the wake of the tragic murders of two Michigan children whose mother tortured them before stuffing them into the family’s freezer, lawmakers are calling for more stringent regulation of homeschooling in the state. The proposed legislation from state Rep. Stephanie Chang, a Detroit Democrat, would require homeschooled children to be inspected twice per year by a licensed social worker or law enforcement officer. The bill would also require homeschooling parents to register their children — like dogs or sex offenders — with the superintendent of the school district in which they reside. Michigan is one of eleven states that...

"This winter was cold in parts of our country -- as some folks in Congress like to point out -- but around the world, it was the warmest ever recorded," Obama said. The result, he continued: stronger storms, deeper droughts, and longer wildfire seasons. And with a nod back to his recent statements about how climate change caused his daughter's asthma, Obama warned that the air kids breathe is dangerous.

We have all seen the photo of Hillary Clinton flying on a C-17 to Libya in October 2011 using a hand-held device to presumably check or send emails, perhaps about her trip, the situation in Libya, or maybe, just maybe, communicating with a foreign Clinton Foundation donor. We don't know because, as House Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy noted on CBS' "Face The Nation" last Sunday,...

That's a significant decline since the late...

    Holder Frames Ferguson PD For Racism Using Bogus 'Disparate Impact' Stats 03/05/2015 Racial Politics: Unable to pin racism charges on Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Attorney General Eric Holder is using half-baked data to manufacture a case of racism against his entire police force. Holder's race-baiting civil rights crew combed through several years of Ferguson Police Department data on traffic stops, searches and arrests and "found a pattern of racial disparities in Ferguson's police activities." "African Americans are overrepresented in FPD's vehicular stops" and victims of "racial bias," Holder concludes in his report. He...

    Scandal: The email plot thickens with news that Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff also used a private email account on the Clintons' server to conduct government business. Watchdog group Judicial Watch, which doesn't like being lied to or jerked around any more than the House Benghazi Select Committee does, has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of State seeking all communications, including emails, between Secretary of State Clinton and Huma Abedin with Nagla Mahmoud, wife of ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi between Jan. 21, 2009, and Jan. 21, 2013. The lawsuit — which also seeks...

    Another Sunset Park resident is vindicated after prosecutors dropped charges that video of the incident proved were trumped-up. Prosecutors dismissed charges that 17-year-old Enrique Del Rosario assaulted a police officer on June 8. Cops pinched Del Rosario last summer as he filmed them arresting revelers during Puerto Rican Day festivities on Fifth Avenue in Sunset Park. They beat Del Rosario and then tried to make him look like the aggressor, his lawyer said.

    limate Change: Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA, can't answer basic questions about global temperatures, climate models or numbers of hurricanes. She didn't know being a global warming zealot requires knowledge of math. If the science of climate change was "settled," you'd think one of the generals in the war on global warming would have memorized the numbers that point to our planetary doom from a menace the administration says is a greater threat than terrorism. But McCarthy was asked some pretty simple questions Wednesday at a Senate hearing Wednesday on her request for $8.6 billion to help fight the...

    After claiming not to use email while Secretary of State, it has been discovered that Hillary Clinton in fact had private email addresses. This information was obtained in a shady manner by a hacker who called himself Guccifer. Much of the information was originally hacked from old Clinton hack Sydney Blumenthal. It appears that in addition to various personal greetings and inquiries Blumenthal send Hillary what he described as confidential information about Libya. Hillary’s problems at least start with Guccifer, they continue with 50,000 pages worth of documents she provided to the State Department in relation to the House Benghazi...

    It’s starting. As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

    ISIS militant ‘Jihadi John’ unmasked as middle-class Brit By Yaron Steinbuch February 26, 2015 | 7:16am The infamous masked ISIS madman seen in gruesome videos beheading Western hostages was identified by media outlets Thursday as Mohammed Emwazi — a middle-class Briton with a degree in computer programming. The BBC reported that the Kuwaiti-born Emwazi is in his mid-20s and from West London.
