The background is this: in September, Toni Christina Jenkins, a 19-year-old server at a Red Lobster franchise in Franklin, Tenn., served a $44.53 order to a 20-year-old customer named Devin Barnes and his wife....

    Last night, I told you about the fake political hate crime here in Colorado at the Denver Democrat Party headquarters involving one “Maurice Schwenkler.” This hammer-wielding person has been charged with felony mischief. This person’s accomplice is still on the loose. Eleven windows were smashed, causing $11,000 in damage. Schwenkler is a far Left nutball and transgender activist who guys by “Ariel Attack”. As part of Schwenkler’s work for the SEIU-tied 527 group Colorado Citizens Coalition, he/she canvassed for a state Democratic candidate, Mollie Collum. Schwenkler has a prior criminal history… On the last day of the 2008 Republican National...

    I'm surprised that the Rocky Mountain News didn't challenge the circumstances around the anti-Obama "swastika" sign at the recent downtown rally opposing the stimulus package ("Columnist isn't smiling over swastika in rally photo," Feb. 18). Under later questioning, Kreck admitted that the sign was given to her by a staff member for ProgressNow.org, who also provided a photographer to capture the reaction. Doesn't the event at the recent rally seem a little odd? Since ProgressNow.org seems to have the only photo evidence of the sign, doesn't it seem possible that the sign holder is a plant, or perhaps a rube...

    A black man who pretended to be a white supremacist on the Internet has entered a guilty plea to charges that he issued death threats. U.S. Attorney Jim Letten says 20-year old Dyron Hart pled guilty in federal court to "communicating threats in interstate commerce." "According to court documents, Hart... admitted that he created a fictitious name and used the photograph of a white supremacist to communicated a threat. He then purported to be a person outraged by the election of President Barack Obama," Letten said in a news release. Letten says that Hart sent the threat to an African...

    WASHINGTON – A swastika was found Tuesday painted on a sign outside Rep. David Scott's district office, an act the Georgia Democrat said reflects an increasingly hateful and racist debate over health care and should serve as a reminder for people to tone down their rhetoric. Scott's staff arrived at his Smyrna, Ga., office Tuesday morning to find the Nazi graffiti emblazoned on a sign bearing the lawmaker's name. The vandalism occurred roughly a week after Scott was involved in a contentious argument over health care at a community meeting. Scott, who is black, said he also has received mail...

    No link, just heard on Fox News
    If true it would be exactly the sort of thing the far left would do to make it 'appear' as if ordinary, constitution-defending conservatives are nazi-loving lunatics. Also to support Nancy Pelosi's insane allegations about the town hall protesters. I wouldn't be surprised if his own staffers did it. Bad thing is, a large part of the public will believe it was done by actual conservatives. No link available yet. It was something just reported on Fox News Channel.

  • McCain Volunteer in Fake Attack Story Was A Paulian

    McCain volunteer Ashley Todd who lied to police about attack was a Paulian. She was so nutz they kicked her out of their group. In March, Ms. Todd was asked to leave a grass-roots group of Ron Paul supporters in Brazos County, Texas, group leader Dustan Costine said. He said Ms. Todd posed as a supporter of former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and called the local Republican committee seeking information about its campaign strategies. "She would call the opposing campaign and pretend she was on their campaign to get information," Mr. Costine said last night. "We had...

    Almost from the start, Pittsburgh police were skeptical about a young woman's claim that she had been mugged and a "B" carved into her cheek by an attacker who was provoked by the sight of a John McCain bumper sticker on her car. Yesterday, their doubts were confirmed when 20-year-old Ashley Todd, a McCain volunteer from College Station, Texas, admitted that she made the whole thing up. There was no black man with a knife, no robbery, no physical assault. (snip) In March, Ms. Todd was asked to leave a grass-roots group of Ron Paul supporters in Brazos County, Texas,...
