    Did our founders, after drafting a Declaration of Independence, fighting a war with England, and then sitting down to pen a national governing document (the Constitution) put in that document the right of a majority of federal judges to make laws for the entire nation? Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis is testing the claim that five unelected Supreme Justices have the authority to overrule a state constitution that she took an oath to uphold and a federal Constitution that says nothing about same-sex marriage.

    I’m not sure if I believe the words from Obama’s Department of Justice Attorney General that condemn the upsurge in police attacks, especially after they’ve been actively encouraging “Black Lives Matter” to protest against cops and blame whitey for everything. Watch below:(video at link)The media won’t report it and that’s why conservative media is so important. And that’s why we appreciate every tweet and every facebook share you give us, because that’s the only way we can get the word out and defeat the liberal media narrative.

    Traitors in Government It is time to take a look at both sides of the aisle. Political corruption is at an all time high, and it’s dismissed by the media. It starts at the top with Obama who has pushed an anti-American agenda, and forced the United States towards Third World status. The Cloward-Piven strategy is working to perfection combined with the Saul Alinsky tactics now being used by both sides, The citizens of this once great country are confused, tense and coming to a point where our national pride is seriously at stake.

    There is a solid argument to be made that forcing Donald Trump to sign the Republican Pledge was step one in this RNC/GOPe strategy. He’s now locked in the Thunderdome! When you fully understand the scope of how the Republican National Committee organized the entire road map to elect Jeb Bush, you begin to understand why Reince Priebus needed to lock the door behind Trump before unleashing the thugs upon him. Hundreds of millions will be spent on this RNC/GOPe effort to destroy Trump. It will be unlike any scorched earth campaign ever witnessed. The brutality of the intended targeting...

The answer to that lies in the 'Palestinians.'...

Mr. Obama lit the racial powder keg back in 2009 with his mischaracterization that Boston cops “acted stupidly” in arresting a black Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates Jr., for being belligerent with law enforcement at the man’s home.

No, he's not one of them, he's one of us. I’m told that in supporting Donald Trump, I’m advocating for a civil war within the Republican party. Let me be clear, I’m not trying to start a civil war, I’m simply joining a revolution.

Only his grieving father, Abdullah, left to take their bodies back to Kobane, Syria. All the Canadian government’s fault. What a story! And right...

Politics is an industry, a business – an old business; and like all industries there are leaders within that industry who are more influential than others. Those leaders or industry directors follow the same playbook whenever their grip on political power is threatened. Right now the directive is to gather information to use against the vulgarian insurgency. In politic-speak it’s called “opposition research”. Part of...

    The P5+1 agreement with Iran on Iran’s nuclear program has generated (sometimes fevered) anticipation of an Iranian oil bonanza at the end of the nuclear agreement rainbow, both in terms of the increase in Iranian crude output and the business opportunities for foreign firms in driving the increase. The anticipation comes from several sources. Iran’s crude potential is one. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Iran’s proven crude reserves, 158 billion barrels, are the world’s fourth largest (and among the cheapest to produce at $8-to-$17/barrel, depending on the source,). Iranian public statements expressing determination to increase crude output...

The prohibitions were accompanied by civil fines and even criminal penalties for repeat offenders.The "employer sanctions" laws, as they are usually described, also included prohibitions on "use of labor through contract", reflecting legislators' awareness that without them, employers would try to skirt the law forbidding hiring of illegal aliens by claiming they were contract employees, or by conveniently using subcontractors to do...

During that year, the Red Army suffered nearly 90 percent losses, crossing 18 mountain ranges and 24 rivers to arrive at its new base at Shaanxi, in northwest China. The GOP has many lessons to learn from the Chinese Communists. When the Long March began, Zhu De and Zhou Enlai led the Chinese Communist Party.  By the end, Mao Zedong was in complete control.  Prior to 1934, Mao’s guerilla...

There’s something to this. Marx’s disciples like Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro, and the Kim family have between them killed many more people than perished at the hands of Adolf.

    Just what is it about leftists and their fellow liberal travellers that compels them to proselytize for Socialism? In their holier-than-thou condescending style, leftists and liberals love to dictate to people about what is and isn’t moral as if their ideology is the perfect truth which all should follow. Their default position is Socialist and liberal beliefs are more enlightened and therefore, they are automatically morally superior to everyone else. Socialists and Liberals will be shocked and offended should anyone dare to question their perfect truth and will become outraged, angry and even violent should dissenters refuse to be brow-beaten...

    The western world is going to have to change the way it measures history. We had Before Christ (BC) and anno Domini (AD)...and now we have After Sanity (AS). I don't know when we should mark it's beginning, 2008? 2012? If we're not going to base it on Obama's election then at a minimum we're in the year 1 AS. The reasons are many, the Iran nuke deal, the Jenner formerly known as Bruce, Miley Cyrus in general...or maybe we'll just go with this: The University of Tennessee in Knoxville is ditching gendered pronouns. According to the university, students and...

  • Anatomy of the Iran Nuclear Deal and Why Americans Hate Establishment Politicians

    The online article below appeared on NPR News today. The duplicity of our elected officials is breathtaking. Listen to the NPR story or read the article. http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/09/02/436647276/minority-rules-capitol-hill-vote-tactics-displayed-in-iran-deal The NPR piece describes quite well the mechanics or process concocted by both political parties whereby the Iran nuclear deal was deliberately transformed by congress from a treaty, which it really is, into an executive agreement. This sleight of hand was orchestrated so that congressmen, including all members of the Republican Party, could say in public to their constituents that they are vehemently opposed to the deal while simultaneously making sure the deal...

    Tuesday, September 01, 2015 The Truth About Congressional Pro-Israel Theater Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Here is how the pro-Israel theater works. Every other country has its American embassy in its capital. Except Israel. Every few years, Congress would bring up a bill or a resolution calling or even mandating that the embassy be moved to Jerusalem. Even politicians not known for their great love of the Jewish State would vote for it. Some like Biden or Kerry would even sponsor them. The bill would have a loophole allowing a president to waive it in the...

    The incorporationist doctrine should be rejected. The simple fact of its long use lends it no credibility – a bad idea is still bad, even if it has the weight of long usage behind it. When he authored the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, Thomas Jefferson based his arguments for nullification, in part, upon the compact theory of the relationship between the states and the Federal Government. According to this original understanding of the State-Federal relationship, the Constitution under which the Republic was to operate was the creation of the several states, and thus the Federal government was also the creation...

    Well, that didn't take long. If there are two guys in the GOP field who really don’t seem to care for each other, it’s Jeb Bush and Donald Trump. Trump labelled Bush a “low energy” person who “doesn’t really want to be doing what he’s doing” and Bush has referred to Trump as a “clown,” a “buffoon,” and an “@$$hole.” Given the animosity between them, it’s probably not surprising that the last 24 hours has seen the launch of two attack ads - one from each side. First up, Trump dings Bush on his one of his more idiotic pro-illegal...
