    This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day in honor of our American servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives defending us both at home and abroad. Many of our troops enlist in the military upon adulthood and have served in wars before their classmates have even graduated from college. These men and women are true American heroes and we must protect them just as well as they protect us. Unfortunately, despite President Obama’s Memorial Day proclamation that we shall “never forget” the sacrifices of our soldiers, he and Secretary of State John Kerry have forgotten about a living American hero...

    BAGHDAD (AP) — A contentious draft law being considered in Iraq could open the door to girls as young as nine getting married and would require wives to submit to sex on their husband's whim, provoking outrage from rights activists and many Iraqis who see it as a step backward for women's rights.

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – News reports of frosted pop tart guns! Paper guns! Bubble guns! Pointed finger guns! Bang, bang, you’re dead! OMG! sound the alarm These days, everything’s a federal offense, so to speak, and no institution is ratcheting up the war-of-words like public education. This winter, public school administrators in Thousand Oaks, CA attended a “safe school” and “threat assessment” workshop, a collaboration of the local Ventura County Department of Education and the Ventura County Sheriffs where the education code was redefined to include a 21st Century list of words, phrases and expressions that can hurt. Literally. Yes,...

    A Massachusetts politician has put forth a proposal to allow local police to enter homes without a warrant in order to inspect whether gun owners are properly storing their firearms.The idea was floated by Swampsott Selectman Barry Greenfield, who expressed frustration about the Newtown school massacre in the neighboring state of Connecticut and in other cases where people have obtained their parents’ guns to carry out shootings. “We need the ability to enforce the state law,” Greenfield said, according to the Swampscott Patch. The town of Swampscott reportedly has about 600 gun owners. Under Massachusetts law, it is “unlawful to...

  • Somalis in America Sympathize with Somali Pirates, Not Americans

    Clearly this is a problem that only can be solved with more Somali settlers moving out of the Midwest and into coastal states. And then Americans can finally experience Somali piracy without going anywhere near Africa.These people are not Americans. They have no interest in being Americans. Somalis living in Knoxville — and across the country — are anxious about the new negativity being circulated around the world by the actions of a few. The forecast isn’t getting any easier. No other groups gets this treatment. This “backlash whining” in front of every story and after every crime. Now talking...

    The push for radical transgender rights in schools is trumping privacy rights at one Colorado high school. A male student at Florence High School who claims to be a transgender has been harrassing girls in the bathroom. When parents complained, school officials said the boy's rights as a transgender trumped their daughters' privacy rights. As the controversy grew, some students were threatened with being kicked off athletic teams or charged with hate crimes if they continued to voice concerns. The Pacific Justice Institute sent the school a letter warning against squelching privacy rights. "We're not going to stand by and...

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a report titled “Legislating Fear – Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States” on Thursday. The report profiles and accuses several individuals, websites, organizations of being anti-Islamic and spreading so called “Islamophobia” throughout the United States. The controversial organization, that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the U.S. government’s 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial and reportedly built ties with the current administration is hitting back at its critics in this report. Among the offenders in its report, CAIR names: Fox News, The Washington Times, The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Mark Levin...
  • Why doesn’t the Oppressive Left care about protecting the Children?

    What is it about the Gun-grabbing ghouls and their BSMedia minions with protecting themselves and not our precious offspring? They lost their collective cookies over the mere suggestion that armed police offices keep kids safe. In part it could be their Dracula like aversion to guns in the hands of individuals not of their security details. But you have to ask yourself why is the oppressive left so adamant about not protecting the Children? There has to be something else at work here – some other reason than Hoplophobia in the extreme – but what could it be? Why don’t...
  • President Obama’s Focus is to keep Criminals Away from Guns Except When it Gives Guns to Criminals

    Western Free Press ^ | July 28 2012 | by Western Free Press
    President Obama’s administration needs to work on its communication. Today, Jay Carney said that the Obama Administration’s focus is “to keep criminals and others who should not have those guns, from being able to obtain them.” Memos must not get sent to the right people, or maybe they are sent but are just overlooked It was December 2010 when conservative bloggers were trying to get national recognition of the Fast and Furious Scandal. With the murder of ATF Agent Brian Terry came a justifiable outrage for not only bungling a dangerous case, but also for not disclosing any of the...

    I challenge anyone and everyone provide proof that Obama received the Certification of Live Birth, which is dated June 2007, and posted online, from the Hawaii Health Department. Show me one statment, by any official of the State of Hawaii, Department of Health, made prior to today's date, where they claimed that they provided this document to Obama. So many people say that Obama is a citizen-that they have seen his Birth Certificate-but all they have seen is a picture or a computer image. We all see movies everyday where computer graphics are used, the images aren't real. Surely if...

    A 62-year-old woman known as the "Black Widow" is being held in a North Carolina jail on $1.5 million bond for relatively petty charges, while police race to unravel a web of mysteries — including the deaths of her two husbands and a female "best friend" — before time runs out and "she's outta here."

"The value of liberty was thus enhanced in our estimation by the difficulty of its attainment, and the worth of characters appreciated by the trial of adversity." --George Washington There have been several people, from politicians to pundits, that have opined about how to--or whether to-- rebuild the city of New Orleans. Right here and now, I will take a stand: REBUILD THE CITY. In the wake of a natural disaster of epic proportions, we also now have an opportunity of epic proportions.

  • Cardinals and Niners to meet in Mexico City for Regular season game.

    Two league sources confirmed Tuesday that the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers will meet in an Oct. 2 regular-season game in Mexico City. The matchup, first reported by The Arizona Republic in its Tuesday editions, will be the NFL's initial regular-season game played outside the United States. The lone remaining element to be addressed is firming up some details with television partners in Mexico, a league source said, and that is considered a formality. The NFL expects to formally announce the game, the potential for which was first broached by commissioner Paul Tagliabue at his pre-Super Bowl news conference,...

    Bush Speech Urging Health Care Initiative WASHINGTON - Campaign 2004 officially under way, President Bush will use his State of the Union address Tuesday night to propose measures he says would bring millions of uninsured onto the health care rolls, while urging Americans to stand behind him in the war on terrorism. Bush will take advantage of the high-visibility speech to the nation to highlight his election-year agenda, a day after Democrats formally kicked off their presidential nomination selection process in the Iowa caucuses. Sens. John Kerry of Massachusetts and John Edwards of North Carolina rode late surges to a...
