  • One Year After the Fogel Family Murders, the Community Rebuilds

    American Thinker ^ | March 25, 2012 | Stella Paul
    It takes more than a murderer's knife to kill the Jewish spirit. One year after five members of the Fogel family were brutally stabbed to death, the residents of their small farming community in the West Bank dedicated a new religious school in their honor. Itamar, a quiet hilltop town surrounded by hostile Arab villages, has earned a tragic distinction as "the most wounded community." Since its founding in 1984, a series of terror attacks has killed twenty-two people (including nine children) in a town of just 200 families. Yet after each massacre, the people of Itamar rebuild and replant,...

    Gregory Scarpa Sr., the Colombo enforcer who did double-duty as an FBI informant, suggests that the mob was behind the 1971 hit on his boss Joe Colombo according to the Bureau's recently-released file on the Grim Reaper. Colombo was shot by Jerome Johnson, a black wannabe mobster, during the June 28, 1971 rally for the Italian American Civil Rights League which served as a public relations front for the mob boss. The investigation into the Colombo hit was little more than perfunctory, and law enforcement quickly concluded Johnson was a lone madman. However, Scarpa said that Johnson was not a...

    No hearings into Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of President of the United States will be held nor or any even scheduled, a spokeswoman for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said on Wednesday, March 21, at 1:04 p.m. “NO,” she answered in curt reply to the question, “Do You Have Any Hearings Scheduled?” even though Obama does not pass an E-verify check and the Arpaio investigation by seasoned law enforcement and legal personnel turned up very credible evidence of “fraud and forgery” in birth certificate and selective service documents on file for the sitting president!

    As our government is buying 7 million tons of ammonia laced pink slime to serve our beloved school children, a credit card receipt which, allegedly, Michelle Obama signed right before the 2008 election for a $450 room service snack is just showing up. She ordered 2 whole steamed lobsters costing $100; 2 lobster hors d’oeuvres at $50 and one serving of delicate Iranian Osetra caviar at $150 and washed down her snack in her suite #29m, allegedly at NY’s Waldorf-Astoria on Park Ave. with one Bollinger Champagne service costing $44 to bring her total bill to $447.39 after paying a...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) confidently predicted that the US Supreme Court will rule that the President’s health care law is Constitutional. “The proof is right there in the Constitution itself where it promises that the government will provide for the people’s rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness,” Pelosi said. “By making sure everyone buys health insurance the law is protecting their lives. By requiring that employers cover birth control costs the law is liberating people from the risks of unwanted pregnancies. And as for pursuit of happiness—isn’t that what those who need birth control are doing?”...

    Don't want Obama re-elected?Then don't vote for Mitt Romney in the primaries!Obama is 100% unacceptable. Romney and Paul are also 100% unacceptable.Having just received a 2012 Congressional District Census questioner in the mail for our 1st congressional district, two of the questions went as follows:"Do you plan on voting in the 2012 Presidential election?"[my answer]: -Yes"If yes, do you plan on voting for Barack Obama or the Republican Nominee?[my answer]: - you left out the option of a write-in vote. If Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee, the establishment's darling, then this voter will be making a write-in vote for Sarah Palin.Sean Hannity,...

    Vice-President Joe Biden praised the killing of Osama bin-Laden, calling it “the most audacious plan of the past 500 years.” Asked about other possible contenders for “most audacious plan”–the D-Day invasion of Normandy during WWII or Washington’s Christmas Day attack on Hessian troops in 1776—Biden replied “no contest.” “The raid that killed bin-Laden was carried out without any casualties for our side,” Biden pointed out. “The same can’t be said for any other action taken by any other president. Let’s not forget that Allied Forces had 10,000 casualties on D-Day and 2500 men were killed. That’s a bit of a...

    Remember Clint Eastwood’s insulting Super Bowl commercial about Detroit’s comeback? Using the voice we have come to recognize as a source of “truth justice and the American way” he tried to fool us into believing Detroit was “too tough to die” and all that Democrat wishful thinking. Clearly Dirty Harry didn’t do his homework because Detroit is sinking faster than the Titanic and Democrat fantasies can’t change that reality. The Democrat infected Motor City is more on course to become “Greece” than a new “grease monkey’s” paradise. All of the make believe about Detroit’s recovery will come to a crashing...

    Republican candidates for President, take heed: Do not waste time and energy campaigning to Hispanics or African Americans. Their minds are made up; and their candidate is Barack Hussein Obama: PERIOD. New information clearly indicates that neither of these voting blocs is interested in even helping themselves out of the hole they’re in, let alone help America regain our position as the world’s leading economic power. They are so invested in Obama that their own unemployment numbers mean nothing to them – “Blame everything on Bush – Obama’s the man!” Not long ago African Americans were told their unemployment had...
  • Mitt Schwarzenegger. Rhino at best?

    Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up? Or maybe better yet, leave. After trying for years with mixed success at best to persuade the core of Republican voters that he’s like them and not a Republican in Name Only (Rhino), Romney was betrayed by his own campaign’s candid admission last week. Asked whether the candidate had moved too far to the right for the general election, Romney aide Eric Fehrnstrom told CNN that the GOP hopeful would hit a reset button for the fall campaign. “It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch,” he said. “You can kind of shake...

    Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert has admitted what most Republican voters have known for a very long time—that the Republican Party leadership is more concerned with the dictates of political correctness and scorn from a liberal press corps than with fighting for the rights of the American people. Though Gohmert maintains Republican big-wigs like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell really are committed to the defeat of Barack Hussein Obama, he stated in a January interview with Rush Limbaugh that Party elders believe the only way to accomplish it is “by being nice.” (1) That’s why Republicans were told to “handle [Nancy...

    canada free press ^ | kelly o'connell
    An astounding transformation in the concept of truth has occurred the last few decades in America. No longer are statements or ideas accepted simply on their soundness or logical consistency. In fact, logic often has no impact upon an idea’s popularity. Increasingly, an idea needs official government backing before it is deemed “true.” This change bodes extreme danger for the future of our democracy. How exactly this change is occurring is a fascinating question. Without doubt, it’s happened while government has grown towards supreme authority while the church’s traditional role of defender of truth has withered away. Also, the demise...

    Gambino boss John Gotti's "reputation as a fierce and dangerous mafia kingpin . . . established him in the public's conscience as 'public enemy number 1" according to recently released FBI documents, and an Oct. 4, 1990 memo from the New York field office directly to the Bureau's Director explains why the Dapper Don and his administration had become its investigative priority: "The present structure of the family's heirarchy developed as a result of the notoriously violent deaths of PAUL CASTELLANO and THOMAS BILOTTI in December, 1985. These murders combined with the successful prosecutions in NY's investigation entitled Operation Castaway...

    If one wanted to destroy America, all one would need to do is break the country into parts and chisel away at each segment, bit by bit. Tuesday‘s episode of The Glenn Beck Program laid out America’s core components and described how each one is being undermined and thus, destroyed. But who is doing the destroying? Glenn contends that those seeking to dismantle the American way are “no longer progressives.” Instead, the left has successfully morphed into what it had always intended to be: Full-fledged Communists. “Progressives can say mission accomplished. Now it’s phase two.”Invoking Stuart Chase’s “The Road We...

    Last night, a reporter from Univision asked President Obama about the subject of a CBS News investigation: allegations that ATF allowed traffickers to send weapons to Mexican drug cartels in an operation called "Fast and Furious." "There may be a situation here which a serious mistake was made and if that's the case then we'll find out and well hold somebody accountable," he added.
