    The Koran, Sura 5:33 - 'The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter'  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Isn't it about time somebody asked our 'caring' and hyper-tolerant humanist president why he's still playing nice and sending millions/billions of dollars to Gaza and Egypt when they are now run by the most intolerant, eliminationist kooks this...

    A great deal of attention has been paid to hate-filled protests in front of synagogues by the Westboro Baptist Church or school protests in Beit Shemesh, but in Ann Arbor hate-filled left-wing protests have taken place in front of a synagogue every Sabbath for a decade. What you are seeing is one of a few photos from Ann Arbor's Beth Israel Congregation and some of the photos get uglier than this. There has been astoundingly little media commentary on this, though if a right-wing group had been harassing a synagogue every Shabbat for a decade, there would have been four...

    The conviction of and two year prison sentence leveled against anti-clerical, anti-authoritarian riot grrl punk rock band Pussy Riot should not have come as a surprise to those who have been following the periodic show trials initiated by the Putin regime in order to quell swelling domestic discontent and internal protests. In spite of the inevitability of this verdict, dozens of sympathizers and rock enthusiasts-such as the person seen above-decided to show up in Times Square for yesterday’s Global Day Of Action, which was intended to demonstrate solidarity with the three women prosecuted for standing up to Vladimir Putin and...

    The Obama State Department is once again flexing its muscle in what has become an ongoing and unrelenting effort to aggressively promote the radical gay agenda across the globe, and the latest target is the Czech Republic, where the Obama administration has joined with other "outside pressure groups" to push the radical gay agenda in the Czech Republic, in direct opposition to the will of the overwhelming majority of the Czech people. This latest action has prompte  121 other national and international pro-family organizations, under the umbrella of The World Congress of Families, to officially protest the State Department's participation...

    Obama campaign manager Jim Messina sent a letter to the Romney campaign offering to stop demanding more disclosures if the Romney campaign would consent to providing five years worth of Romney’s tax returns. The Romney campaign has rejected the offered deal. Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades explained that “given President Obama’s lengthy list of broken promises we have no confidence that any offer coming from his campaign can be trusted. To take just one example, in 2008 he promised voters he would halve the deficit. Instead he’s boosted it by nearly 50 percent. We’re afraid he can’t be counted on...

    When this story broke today that John Hynansky received a taxpayer funded $20 MILLION loan to build two luxury car dealerships and expand others in the Ukraine, Conservatives decried it and Media Matters bashed Conservatives. Media Matters says the loan by Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) is not taxpayer funded. The truth is, it all depends on what the meaning of "self-funded" is. Photo: John Hynansky Hynansky is a close friend and contributor to Joe Biden's political adventurers as well as a contributor to Barack Obama, so a $20 MILLION loan with US taxpayer funding to be sent overseas, made a...

    The video best tells the story of this effort in Onslow Country, South Carolina. Can we move this across the U.S.? Can 'We The People' donate a sign? “We’re proud of our military service members, and we support the members who have given so much in defense of our freedoms,” Onslow County Manager Jeff Hudson told the Daily News of Jacksonville.Onslow County Manager Jeff Hudson told the newspaper that county officials will install two wounded warrior parking spaces each at the tax office, the health department and the county's multipurpose complex.“It’s a new program for us, but certainly we’re proud...
  • Young people protest for gun rights in front of D.C. city hall

    The Washington Times ^ | August 17, 2012 | Tom Howell Jr.
    About 40 young people waved signs and voiced loud support for Second Amendment rights in the front of D.C. city hall on Friday, an unusual sight in a heavily Democratic city that is known for its strict gun-control laws. For about two hours, they captured the attention of passing motorists and tourists with their argument that increased gun ownership equals increased public safety. Their rally comes two days after an unarmed building manager was shot in the arm at the Family Research Council, a conservative organization in the District’s busy downtown. Mayor Vincent C. Gray has pledged to preserve the...

    ("Actual Title: Startling Evidence that Central Banks and Wall Street Insiders Are Rapidly Preparing for Something BIG." This was too long, so modified the title for FR.) If you want to figure out what is going to happen next in the financial markets, carefully watch what the insiders are doing. Those that are “connected” have access to far better sources of information than the rest of us have, and if they hear that something big is coming up they will often make very significant moves with their money in anticipation of what is about to happen. Right now, Wall Street...

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, talk show host Bill Cunningham was accused of racism. His crime was to use the full name of Barack Hussein Obama at a campaign rally. To liberals, including Republican nominee John McCain, it was somehow racist to mention Obama’s middle name. Never mind that the President has often referred to his middle name and it was heard by millions of Americans when he took the oath of office. Incredibly, Cunningham had crossed some sort of imaginary line created by the liberal news media and Democrats who work full time to protect Barack Obama. Now, four...

    Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 17, 2012 TheTeaParty.Net, one of the largest national Tea Party groups, announced the launch of its "Let Them Speak" petition today. The petition calls for the Republican National Committee to allow Tea Party leaders to speak at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. "The 2012 Republican National Convention has begun to announce keynote speakers and many prominent Tea Party leaders are noticeably absent from the list," said Todd Cefaratti, Freedom Organizer of TheTeaParty.Net. "The RNC's blatant attempt to silence Tea Party voices and ignore the historic success of the Tea Party since 2009 is...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 8/17/2012 | Jack Spencer
    Those promoting the "Keep Home Care Safe" ballot proposal want people to believe the constitution changing plan would create a benefit to allow disabled people to be taken care of in their homes. The thing is, that protection and a program to ensure it continues already exists. The federal Home Help Program would continue to exist in Michigan regardless of the constitutional amendment change that's being proposed. However, passing the proposed amendment in November would lock the forced unionization of home health care workers into the state constitution and ensure that the Service Employees International Union continues to get about...

    MOBILE, Alabama — Five men who were working at a Satsuma company are among 3,500 illegal immigrants across the country that law enforcement authorities contend obtained fake identification from a Missouri-based fraudulent documents ring. This morning, Werner Hernandez-Ramirez, 26, became the third local defendant to plead guilty in Mobile’s federal court to use of fraudulent documents. He is eligible for probation under advisory sentencing guidelines, and then will be turned over to immigration authorities, who have initiated proceedings to deport him to Guatemala for unrelated violations. “He was just trying to work,” defense attorney Greg Hughes said. “It’s a sad...

    The Obama Administration today revealed it is embarking upon a $300 million Palestinian construction project; U.S. companies, however, need not apply. Indeed, the stated goal of this U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) project is to award program contracts solely to West Bank and Gaza-area vendors, according to presolicitation notice released today. The Local Construction Program, or LCP, as it is known, will seek out non-governmental entities to carry out a variety of initiatives involving "local construction or rehabilitation of roads, buildings, water, wastewater, public buildings including health facilities, schools, and other infrastructure." USAID said it expects to release a...

    --IMAGE HERE-- Last Saturday morning, in the great Commonwealth of Virginia, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his pick for vice president. Therefore, as part of my ongoing series about the presidential race, I decided to do an evaluation of where the two vice-presidential candidates stand on gun rights issues. I have a pretty good idea what the answer is going to be but it is vitally important that we base our views upon facts and not anecdotes. So let us see what a little research tells us about which of the two candidates...

    Obama Campaign email
    I just got back from Iowa, where we are being outspent 2 to 1 on the air. Voters there mentioned it to me more than once. We expect Mitt Romney and the Republicans to outspend us. What I will not abide is getting outspent by a margin that negates all the hard work our volunteers are doing -- talking to voters, knocking on doors, making calls. We are in control of that outcome, but our time to close the gap is dwindling. After three consecutive months of being significantly outraised, it couldn't be more urgent. Will you make a donation...
