    It is time to accept this bitter truth, deal with it by protecting ourselves and stop living in the fantasy world of political correctness. It is hard to believe that Attorney General Loretta Lynch is actually making her predecessor, Eric Holder, the race bating liberal, look good. It is quite an accomplishment to be worse than Holder, but Lynch has achieved that goal in record time, especially with her lame brained response to the terrorist attack in Orlando. In the early morning hours of the Pulse nightclub attack, Jihadist Omar Mateen made it quite evident in his 911 calls and...

    Pittsburgh news anchor fired after racist Facebook post says it was because she is white A Pittsburgh news anchor fired for a Facebook post stereotyping black people as criminals is suing, saying she was let go because she is white. Wendy Bell, then a presenter at WTAE, caused a social-media firestorm with a March post, where she wrote that still-unidentified shooting suspects were probably black. “You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday ...

    PC Must Be Branded as BS The genesis for this brief essay is the recent event in Orlando and the attempts to understand how and why it occurred. In the coming days, weeks, months, there will be countless pronouncements on the subject from pundits, beginning at the top (President Obama), all the way down the ladder to bottom rungers like myself.

    Trump is destroying the leprosy of Political Correctness, created to shut the mouths of the silent majority and to intimidate Republicans. It has reigned far too long. I say, call out the fake Indians and Mexican judges! It's time Donald Trump is in the soup again. Mr. Trump has liberal race hustlers sputtering a rain of spittle, and has the GOP Establishment jelly legged, knees knocking and lower lips quivering. With two recent comments Mr. Trump has Republicans running for the tall grass, and even Newt Gingrich - a tepid but agreeable supporter - has demanded Trump apologize. What did...

    Tuberculosis: The Deadly Disease of Political Correctness We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.—Barack Obama, October 30, 2008 According to the latest Census, illegal immigration has exploded 57 percent in less than two years, with at least 550,000 new undocumented aliens pouring into America in a trend that is set to continue growing. In an analysis of the numbers, the Center for Immigration Studies found illegal and legal immigration have reached over 1.5 million a year, a new 15 year high, and a 39 percent increase over 2013.

NPR reported [1] Thursday that Foxx, who was raised by his grandparents in Charlotte, N.C. and became the city’s mayor before President Barack Obama appointed him to Transportation secretary, said highways were designed to deliberately hurt certain residents. “I didn’t realize it as a kid,” Foxx said of the interstate highways snaking through that state. “I didn’t think about it as economic barriers, psychological barriers...

Eventually, he will be featured on the back of the bill, while the image of Harriet...

    Americans must destroy the demon of political correctness, start facing reality, and stop living in a fantasy world where the bogeyman of racism is everywhere The United States of America in 2016 is a country in deep trouble. We are facing severe economic and national security challenges, made worse by almost two terms of destructive Obama administration policies. Even more troubling is the assault on our culture through a never ending quest for more multiculturalism and political correctness. The flow of both legal and illegal immigrants has continued unabated for over five decades. Currently, according to the U.S. Census Bureau,...

    Trump is taking out the trash. And the more it tries to burn him, the more people will want to see it burn. Perhaps it’s not surprising that Time magazine named Angela Merkel its “Person of the Year.” With her flooding of Europe with Muslim migrants, the German chancellor may, after all, go down in history as a primary destroyer of Western civilization. Yet there’s no question in my mind who is Man of the Year: Donald Trump. After underestimating the businessman early on, some are starting to understand Trump’s ascendancy and staying power. Yet, even now, few truly appreciate...

    Mayor Landrieu created a firestorm, stoked racial divisions, and attacked the city’s history, all to promote his political career. Yesterday, in the “City that Care Forgot,” New Orleans politicians displayed very little care for their city’s history, but showed they cared a great deal for political correctness. In a 6-1 vote, City Council members passed an ordinance supported by Mayor Mitch Landrieu to declare four historic Confederate monuments “nuisances” and remove them from the city landscape. It was a big political victory for Landrieu who created this controversy after the murder of nine African Americans in Charleston, South Carolina, by...

    Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views When leftists start talking about “civility,” watch out for your freedom of speech. This again comes to mind with reports that some media outlets are eliminating online comments sections in civility’s name. And while it’s not a First Amendment violation (these are private-sector actions), it is largely motivated by the same mentality spawning speech codes on college campuses and “hate speech” laws overseas. And as with those phenomena, the nixing of online comments is justified with...

One of those consequences is that, with rising anti-Semitism, a part of the intolerance of a growing intransigent minority, Jews are fearful, unsettled, and a growing number are packing their bags and leaving.

Ah, but you suggested it. I didn't. Some liberal "pundits" and politicians have claimed Jared Loughner was motivated to kill six people in Tucson and wound several others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, by comments from conservatives....

    DON'T let political correctness ruin Christmas, Ted Baillieu has warned schools and other community groups. The Premier said Victorians should embrace the festive season. He said schools should not back down from running Christmas pageants, concerts and nativity scenes for fear of offending minority groups. "A Baillieu government expects school principals to take a reasonable and commonsense approach so all Victorian children have the opportunity to enjoy the simple pleasures of Christmas," he said. The warning comes after some schools and community groups imposed Christmas bans in recent years. Islamic Council of Victoria vice-president Sherene Hassan backed Mr Baillieu. "I...

    My, have things changed. I was honored to have Rev. Franklin Graham speak at my Governor’s Prayer Breakfasts. His good work in Alaska’s Native villages and his charitable efforts all over the world stem from his servant’s heart. In my years of knowing him, I’ve never found his tempered and biblically-based comments to be offensive – in fact his words have been encouraging and full of real hope. It’s truly a sad day when such a fine patriotic man, whose son is serving on his fourth deployment in Afghanistan to protect our freedom of speech and religion, is dis-invited from...

    Today I had the extreme pleasure of being a guest on the G.Gordon Liddy Show. Every time I appear on the show its fun, this time was the most fun ever. Originally I was supposed to talk about yesterday's story about the Russian Climategate Revelation,it was billed as: More on ClimateGate There's even more to the ClimateGate controversy the mainstream media are ignoring. It turns out that 75% of the climate data accumulated by Russian scientists was ignored by scientists because it their belief of man-made global warming. Sammy Benoit, of has more. ....that is where we started, but...

    If the Ft. Hood terrorist attack teaches us anything, it should teach us that Political Correctness will kill this country. Every day we find out another example of Major Hasan telegraphed his Islamist intentions and the higher ups in the military did nothing for fear of offending the Muslim community.Beyond the Fort Hood Mass Murderer, we see that our government still interacts with terrorist supporting organizations such as CAIR, Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Students Association, the Muslim American Society who are all children of the Muslim Brotherhood. We even walked away from the word terrorism for...

    You have to view this segment of the Meet the Press interview with Army chief of staff General George Casey to believe it -- to believe that our army could be led by someone as incompetent in national security matters as this man showed he was, first by claiming that the army hadn't "missed anything" in regard to the in-your-face warning signs exhibited by Major Hasan that he was a fanatical Muslim jihadist and an imminent threat to massacre our troops, by admitting that the army's diversity policies had trumped its security policies, and worst of all by making this...
  • Black Tea Party Express Tour Team Member Experiences Racism

    I traveled on the Tea Party Express tour bus as a singer/songwriter, entertainer and spokesperson; 16 states, 34 rallies in two weeks. I experienced vicious racial verbal attacks, not from the tea party protesters. The racial hate expressed against me all came from the left, people who support president Obama's radial socialist agenda. Unfortunately, my deleted email box is littered with numerous messages expressing the following, “You are the dumbest self hating f****** n***** I have ever seen!” These racists are outraged by my opening lines I boldly proclaimed at each rally. “Hello my fellow patriots! I am NOT an...

    Yesterday I met with a loan officer along with a liberal woman who has been working as a consultant for my business. During my conversation to the woman from the loan company, I mentioned in casual conversation "There's this girl that works here who is from the same city you are." Later that afternoon I received the following email from the liberal consultant: "Subject: DUE RESPECT Please stop referring to females as "girls". You kept using that word during our meeting today with Debbie & Anna when you talked about your company. Any female in the business world will be...

    A week after Miley Cyrus addressed her photo flap, the singer continues to draw criticism from some in the Asian community – including Korean comedian Margaret Cho. Cyrus denied she was mocking Asians when a photograph of her pulling at the corners of her eyes surfaced on the Internet. "There are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces," Cyrus wrote on her official Web site. "Well, I'm sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!" In turn, Cho took to her blog on Wednesday to...

    Some Boston College professors and students are raising a holy ruckus over the Catholic school’s return to its religious roots by hanging crucifixes in all its classrooms, calling the move “offensive” and a break from the Jesuit tradition of tolerance. “There is no choice if you don’t think it’s appropriate. You can’t turn it around,” said biology professor Dan Kirschner, faculty adviser for BC’s chapter of Hillel, a Jewish student group. “I think it is being insensitive to the people of other faith traditions here.” [Snip] In an interview with the college newspaper, The Observer, which broke the story,...
