  • ‘Sister Wives’ stars cite gay ‘marriage’ ruling in bid to legalize polygamy

    LifeSiteNews ^ | 8/28/15 | Dustin Siggins
    DENVER, CO, August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- While gay "marriage" activists claimed that the Supreme Court's marriage decision wouldn't open the door to polygamy, five people from the show "Sister Wives" want the 10th Circuit Court to disagree. "This case is about criminalization of consensual relations and there are 21st century cases rather than 19th century cases," said attorney Jonathan Turley in a filing. "It is clear that states can no longer use criminal codes to coerce or punish those who choose to live in consensual but unpopular unions." In a case that was filed in 2011, "Sister Wives" star...

    In its latest video, posted Thursday, NASA shows us that in addition to the intriguing bright spots in a large crater on Ceres, there are also bright streaks running down the sides of a pyramid-shaped mountain rising higher than Alaska's 20,000-foot (6,100 meter) Mt. McKinley. ... And then there's that conical, almost pyramid-looking mountain that rises 4 miles high and is oddly dark on one side while the other side glows with bright streaks that seem similar in their effect to what's causing the other bright spots. "What does this structure tell us about how this world works?" Rayman says....

    Trump is saying some things that simply have to have been said. He's telling the truth. However, the longer this goes on, one begins to wonder what the real motive is? A lot of this stuff should have been said a long time ago by other conservative politicians and none would do so. So, why now...and by THIS guy with no real record of being a conservative? It is beginning to look like he is trying to divide the conservative electorate. The Democrats are all united behind evil causes and they stick together like glue. We could be under invasion...

    I often call the DC-NYC press that covers politics the circle of jerks. The euphemism implied in it aptly describes the typical coverage we have come to expect out of the press corps covering politics. But I think it is worth noting that, at root, they are whores of Moloch. Moloch was the Middle Eastern idol to whom many pagans sacrificed children. The sacrifices were often propitiatory, that is they were designed to avoid divine retribution for things like population control, global warming, white privilege, etc. We see this in the press’s lack of coverage of Planned Parenthood.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is responding to a written request by a local U.S. Army official to provide an extra measure of security at a US Army reserve facility in the wake of last week’s shooting rampage in Tennessee.

    The summer Trump polling spurt has nonetheless been instructive in exposing a growing problem on the political right. All too many conservatives, including some magazine editors, have been willing to overlook his hucksterism as he’s risen in the polls. They pretend that he deserves respect because he’s giving voice to some deep disquiet or anger in the American electorate. But America has rarely lacked for demagogues willing to exploit public discontents. William Jennings Bryan won three Democratic presidential nominations running against eastern elites. In 1948 Henry Wallace ran as a Soviet sympathizer while Strom Thurmond won 39 electoral votes running...

But it is the kind of question that is being raised in this bizarre society we’re living in. A CNN anchor recently questioned whether the Jefferson Memorial should continue to stand. One of her cohorts responded that it might be time to “rethink Jefferson.” To understand these media types, we must remember that most were born after 1970, so they...

During the March 18 edition of his radio show, Glenn Beck gave King a platform to announce a "huge" anti-health care reform rally that would take place on March 20 on Capitol Hill. King stated: "We can beat them if we fill this capitol city up full of patriotic Americans. If tens of thousands pour into this city again, like they have done numerous times before -- pack this Capitol, jam this Capitol, surround the place, don't let anybody in or anybody out -- they will have to...

    Please read about Breitbart's opening salvo against John Podesta and Media Matters. This is not paranoia. Media Matters, a Soros outfit, is hiring "interns" to come on conservative forums and try to sow division, slow down momentum, forment confusion. And they are better at it than they used to be. They don't curse and swear like liberals on their own forums do.
  • Yesterday, the teen suicide of a classmate *Vanity*

    Yesterday morning a classmate and friend of my 17 year old son--a high school senior, was found hanging in his bedroom, having committed a gruesome suicide. In commiting this senseless, unimaginable act, this handsome, intelligent and witty young man has effectively destroyed not just his own life, but his family's--his mother and father, his younger sister, his older brother's. I've not been able to stop asking "WHY"? I cannot shake the memory of his humor and boyishness when he would stay overnight with my sons--travel with us to the lakehouse--his obvious intellect, his considerate manners and his easy willingness to...

    CTV: The Mohawk Council is sending out eviction notices to non-natives who live in the South Shore community. Band councilors say their laws interdict non-natives from living on their land, and so they are giving several dozen people ten days to leave the reserve. "It's nothing new to anybody," said Grand Chief Mike Delisle. "[Anyone] who's saying, 'well, I never heard of this, it's racist' or what have you, It's been a custom in Kahnawake since time immemorial."

    Humblegunner's yard | 5/09/09 | humblegunner
    This afternoon I happened to look out the back and saw something black and long in the middle of the yard. I just mowed yesterday so I knew the yard was free of sticks and such. Turns out it was a big black snake! He isn't a rattler, does not look loke a water moccasin or a black snake. What the heck kind of snake is he? He has the triangular head which means he is a bad one, but I can't place his breed. Anyway, photography being as dangerous as it is, he got wrecked up some which is...

    While the number of people in academia who are openly critical of homeschooling are few, every now and again an article will be published in a university periodical which attacks homeschooling. The critics in academia come from the far left of the political spectrum. One such critic, Robin L. West of the Georgetown University Law Center, recently published an article titled “The Harms of Homeschooling,” which appeared in the Summer/Fall 2009 issue of the University of Maryland’s Philosophy and Public Policy Quarterly. Before we answer the specific charges Ms. West makes against homeschooling we’d just like to give you a...
