    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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...

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...

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."

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.

As this list shows, in the most important election of our life time, where the failed big government, statist policies rooted in socialism and marxism represented by Barack Hussein Obama which are not only failing us, but destroying us, are...

Now that DC Hold’em 2012 is in full play, the cards are taking shape for everyone to see. As you might recall during the 2008 campaign, Obama told Ohio resident “Joe the Plumber” that we needed to “spread the wealth.” There were plenty of savvy political players who believed that he had just tipped his hand, yet the suckers remained at the table and checked their bets.

  • Vanity - Why doesn't Sheldon Adelson Buyout a major media outlet?

    08/16/2012 1:20:05 PM PDT · by jcsjcm · 30 replies
    I think this is a great question! Just why don't the conservatives buyout some of the major networks and then eliminate anyone (which is everyone) that doesn't show a bi-partisan approach when dealing with politics? There should be no defending when a question is asked. There should be no attacking when a question is asked. A journalist is there to present you with the opinion of the person they are interviewing, not the opinion of themselves. I just don't get why they are all owned and operated by liberal hacks.... Well, that's my rant for the day!

    U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor ^ | Aug. 16, 2012 | Steve Peacock
    Equipping U.S. embassies with the unlimited ability to show movies to residents and visitors over the next five years could cost taxpayers more than $1.5 million. The U.S. Department of State claims the expenditure is necessary since the U.S. uses "feature films as programming tools to support foreign policy objectives." State's Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau awarded the sole-source contract to the Motion Picture Licensing Corp. (MPLC) , which it says is the only source that can provide a worldwide blanket-viewing license for 800 facilities. According to a Statement of Work that U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor located via routine...

    There is a curious incident in American literature, an incident that leaves many literate children snickering at an absurd situation. I am writing of the Bellman's bizarre odyssey, in Lewis Carroll's, “The Hunting Of The Snark”; however, this short epic poem of adventure and tragedy could be set in modern times, for it is eerily similar to our present situation. Yes, when we consider the absurdity of selling guns to drug cartels, and after hundreds of people are killed with those same weapons, proclaiming the need for tighter gun control, and giving a failed auto company to its union,...

    Set Our Children Free ^ | 8/16/12 | Tony Caruso
    Another incident of gun violence by an ignorant, misguided bigot, fueled by hate speech and political group ideology. That’s the standard media mantra every time there is a shooting, especially before all of the facts come to light. The leftist media is quick to point out that talk radio and conservative organizations contribute to these kinds of shootings, but one thing always turns up missing – evidence. Despite their failure to find a story fitting their preconceived template, one wonders how they would handle a story that contradicts this narrative. Well, wonder no more. All you have to do is...
  • Pictures of Obama's illegal aliens lined up to steal American jobs will burn him in November

    Coach is Right ^ | 8/16/2012 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    A picture of “tens of thousands” of Barack Obama’s Chicago’s illegal aliens, lining up to complete the process to “legally” steal jobs from unemployed/underemployed Americans will prove the adage that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” For Americans searching for work this image has to be downright sickening. It will come back to bite Barack Obama in November. Initially when Barack Obama decided to use our money our jobs and our lives to buy Hispanic votes with his illegal amnesty of illegal aliens it seemed like he had produced a stroke of genius. The media fawned over the president...

    A former Virginia candidate for US Senate says that Democrats intentionally use racial fear because they think African Americans can be manipulated. Bishop E.W. Jackson, President of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny) says that Vice-President Biden’s comment, ‘They’re gonna put y’all back in chains,’” is not a gaffe. Jackson says: This is part of an intentional strategy to frighten black Americans. The first hint of this was a Democrat sponsored training class by Maya Wiley, President of The Center For Social Inclusion, given in May to House members. The class was to teach them how to decipher the...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 8-16-2012 | MOTUS
    So welcome to Big Guy’s postmodern presidency (PMP) that evolves around his own sun and resides in its own alternate universe. Of course, he didn’t build that himself. The MSM built that for him. Allow me to cover some of the more salient points of the PMP universe: In our world this is not the face of racism: Nor is it racism for the New Black Panthers to take Big Guy’s idea of “a civilian military force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded” to the next level. So when they say they want their own...

    This has got to be one of the best, if not the best, political ads of the season. Regardless of where you stand as far as incumbents vs their challengers go, you must admit that this was one great political ad. It very well could be the reason enough voters were influenced to pull the lever for Tea party challenger, Ted Yoho of Gainesville FL, over the 12 term incumbent, Cliff Stearns, in the primary for Florida's 3 district.While I am always happy to see a Tea Party candidate defeat a Rino, I must admit to being a bit confused...
