    A Memorial Day display featuring crosses to honor fallen soldiers was removed from public property in Georgia after someone questioned whether the soldiers were all Christian. The 79 white, handmade crosses posted on public property along state Highway 92 in Hiram, Ga., were meant to represent the 79 Paulding County residents who died in America’s wars, according to town officials. But the crosses were abruptly taken down last Friday after someone called Hiram City Hall questioning whether the cross is an appropriate symbol for the memorial. Hiram Mayor Teresa Philyaw said the cross display, which she approved and planned, was...

    Venezuela's army is to be backed by civilians grouped into ancillary security units, to tackle food shortages and public unrest, under a state of emergency decree published on Monday. The decree, published in the government gazette, brings into effect for at least 60 days sweeping powers President Nicolas Maduro announced on Friday. The measures give his government and security forces broad authorization to ignore most constitutional safeguards in a bid to keep order and supply basic food and services, and to counter a crippling energy shortage....

    Fox News correspondent James Rosen has accused the Department of State of removing video of a question he asked on the Iranian nuclear negotiations in order to cover-up an alleged deception. Recent revelations from a New York Times Magazine profile on Ben Rhodes, President Obama’s deputy national security adviser for communication and speech writing, show that the administration was involved in secret talks with the Iranian government before official negotiations began in 2013. The information contradicts an exchange Rosen had with former State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. “Late today, we discovered that the State Department’s video of its December 2,...

    Houston-The protest organizer at an Arabic Immersion Magnet School says it is ironic that the seventh largest school district in the U.S. is ignoring the Arabic culture’s “long and ongoing culture of enslavement” while stripping names off of schools of anyone connected with the Confederacy or slavery (and spending millions to do so). The leader of “Stop the Magnet,” Liz Theiss, also said she does not understand why the school would reroute school buses and parent pick-up routes where protesters were playing the Islamic Call To Prayer.

    A proposal to stop the teardown of Louisiana’s Confederate monuments and step into an ongoing fight in New Orleans has failed to win support in the state Senate, blocked by Democratic lawmakers. Sen. Beth Mizell, a Republican who lives 70 miles north of New Orleans, sought to create a state commission to sign off on monument removals. She told senators: “History is bigger than a single community or the mood of a moment.” The argument failed to sway Democrats on the committee, all of whom are black. …

The city doesn’t have its own equipment to move them and is now in talks to find a company, even discussing doing the work at night to avoid further tumult.Initially, it appeared the monuments would be removed quickly after the majority black City...

"We definitely can't say Christmas, nothing with Christmas on it, nothing with Santa,"PTA president Mimi Ferrer said administrators told her. "No angels. We can't even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David." Kim, 33, did not return a call or e-mail seeking comment.

It’s in the nature of campus revolts that the leaders aren’t going to be satisfied with limited reforms to the school; they are inspired by inflated rhetoric, and they see themselves at the center of a great...

    Who made George Will the spokesman for the GOP? He’s defining himself in this article as the consummate judge of who and who isn’t a conservative or a Republican. This is one of the most dishonest political hits I have ever read. Never mind that Will’s wife works for Scott Walker, who I already had issues with because of the people he has surrounding him… I’m sure that has nothing to do with this at all (that’s sarcasm by the way). I support and want Ted Cruz elected, but I take great umbrage at the way Trump is being treated....

    August 14, 2015Hey George Will, Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner? The “Vulgarians”…. By sundance Donald Trump is a counterfeit Republican and “an affront to anyone devoted to the project William F. Buckley began” ~ George Will (Excerpt from Jeffrey Lord) Back in April of this year, two months before Trump announced his candidacy, Will was on the panel of Bret Baier’s Special Report at Fox and said this when the panelists were asked how much money they would place on various candidates in Baier’s “candidate casino.” When he got to Trump he said: ..”One dollar on Donald Trump in the...

    In a compelling column, George Will – who knows a thing or two about conservatism – makes the conservative case against Donald Trump. Mr. Will refers to Trump as an “unprecedentedly and incorrigibly vulgar presidential candidate” who is coarsening our civic life. He labels Trump “a counterfeit Republican and no conservative.” And he argues that Trump is an affront to anyone devoted to the legacy of William F. Buckley, Jr., the founder of National Review and a giant in American conservatism. Just as Buckley excommunicated the John Birch Society from the conservative movement in the 1960s, so should conservatives today...

    “Trumpites” are only “lightly attached to the political process”George Will has written a thought-provoking piece over at WaPo in which he argues that the GOP should purge itself of Trump and Trump’s supporters. Will explains: "When, however, Trump decided that his next acquisition would be not another casino but the Republican presidential nomination, he tactically and quickly underwent many conversions of convenience (concerning abortion, health care, funding Democrats, etc.). His makeover demonstrates that he is a counterfeit Republican and no conservative. He is an affront to anyone devoted to the project William F. Buckley began six decades ago with the...

    On “Fox News Sunday,” conservative columnist George Will said voters will eventually turn on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump when they ask themselves “Do we really want to give nuclear weapons to Donald Trump?” Will said, “What’s going on is that those deemed least qualified to be president, are most qualified to do what the voters want done today, 160 days before the first votes are cast in Iowa, which is send a message. That was George Wallace’s engaging theme in 1968. He said, ‘Send them a message!’ The antecedent of the pronoun ‘them’ was anything you wanted it to...

    The symptoms of the prion disease are beginning to become so obvious that even some of our more prominent pundits are beginning to notice them. For example, even former Karl Rove life-coach Ron Fournier has noticed the severe lack of Abraham Lincolns in the current GOP presidential candidates. And noted climate-denialist and baseball drone George Effing Will has staked out the bold position that many of these candidates have gone so far around the bend that they've crossed some kind of termination barrier. It is, therefore, especially disheartening that Cruz, who clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist and who is...

    NK leader had vice premier executed with gun: sources 2015/08/12 18:41 SEOUL, Aug. 12 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ordered the execution of the country's vice premier by shooting earlier this year, sources said Tuesday, in another sign of the leader's reign of terror. Vice Premier Choe Yong-gon was executed in May as he had expressed discomfort against the young leader's forestation policy, according to the sources. South Korea's state spy agency earlier said that the North Korean leader has tightened grip on his power base in a brutal way, including the execution of about 70 senior officials....

    “Where do we find such men?” That memorable line comes from James Mitchner’s Korean War novel, The Bridges of Toko-Ri. It refers to intrepid aviators lifting from a carrier, flying into untold danger. They know they may not return. They launch anyway. In boldness unfathomable to many, they willingly, artfully fly into peril. They are warriors, men of rare talent, intellect, and courage – a combination essential for victory. Needed warriors are now being purged from the U.S. military. If America went to war right now with China or Russia, we could lose because of these purges. We’re losing...
