  • Freddie Gray Protesters Attack, Rob Reporter Videotaping Them (Baltimore, Maryland)

    Mediaite ^ | April 26, 2015 | Andrew Desiderio
    As demonstrations in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody became increasingly violent last night, protesters attacked and robbed a Russia Today reporter who was videotaping them. Young men were seen in the video flashing the middle finger to the camera and shouting obscenities. As they get closer to the reporter videotaping, she is thrown to the ground. According to RT’s Russian-language site, a protester stole the reporter’s handbag. She pursued the attacker on foot until police showed up. As The Blaze pointed out, though, RT neglected to mention the attack on their English-language website. Watch the...
  • Why the Left Won’t Budge on “Born That Way”

    The linked article has plenty of researched evidence that at least throws into question whether homosexuals are Born That Way, but that is of no matter to the Left. As it is with abortion, even to bring it up as a topic of discussion will garner extreme, hysterical responses. This is yet another “irretrievably settled” Leftist position that is not amenable to logic reason or evidence. It is also one of the most sacred beliefs in Secular Humanist canon. If you do not accept the Born That Way catechism, you are the Infidel. You are “homophobic,” in fact. [Homophobia is...

    Deciding which American state to live in isn’t easy. It’s like entering an all-you-can-eat casino buffet with the limitation of only being able to choose one food item. Before deciding where to live and buy a home it’s important to be informed, which is why Estately has compiled this map and list of what each state has more of per capita than any other. Some are good, some are bad, but all are unique to that specific state.

    It certainly seems so. This week has been very revealing in terms of what conservatives actually think and what progressives imagine we think. The “big” question that kicked it all off was “would you attend a gay wedding?” This was, apparently, supposed to separate the knuckle-dragging haters on the right from the sophisticated and pious leftists. John Nolte writes: "Another Republican presidential hopeful, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, made all kinds of headlines when he said something that would not surprise anyone who has spent any amount of time with a conservative Christian — that he would attend a same sex...

    Which entrance into this nation is illegal? The natural journey down the birth canal or the unnatural, contrived crossing of the border? Ten senators laid down their mandate to protect the Constitution when they voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general Thursday, April 23. Having taken an oath to uphold the tenets of our founding documents, these republicans, who vowed to serve faithfully, were found faithless. There was good reason why President Obama had placed such confidence in his nominee to become the top justice official. When questioned by the Senate committee, Lynch plainly stated her intention of standing...

    During the past weeks I have written about some of the challenges which face the United States (4 parts). I admit that much of it presents a dismal picture. I have received responses saying there is nothing we can do, that the challenges are just too great. But I disagree. There are things we can do. Change will always be painful for some, but the future well-being of the nation depends upon their implementation. Perhaps what follows is part of the answer.–JV We can take our country back. The petty insults we endure each day have nothing to do with...

    We are witnessing a homosexual juggernaut that will settle for nothing less than their own interpretation of the relations between the sexes In 1973, the Supreme Court looked into the Constitution, found that it approved of abortion and overruled laws banning it. Other laws have since addressed late term abortions and those resulting from rape or incest, but killing human life in the womb has been lawful since then. . According to the Guttmacher Institute from 1973 through 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions occurred in the U.S. By dismantling the fundamental traditions and beliefs of a nation piece by...

Do not rejoice at our victories, and do not despair at our defeats.  The culture war isn't about you anyway. It’s about the souls of those who are perishing. Persecution in all forms will come to us as Christians.  Jesus said it would happen. Speaking to His disciples, Jesus said in John 16:32, “A time is...

    Today Americans live in a soft police state. We may not sense its severity and doom like runaway slaves or Anne Frank, but the freedoms of the greatest number of Americans have never been more threatened and violated institutionally -- both openly and secretively -- by our own government. The Fourth Amendment, which is the law limiting government power to search and seize our persons and most private property, has been gutted by executive and administrative actions, Congress, and the courts -- the very bodies that were supposed to enforce it on government. This American Bill of Right is based...

    A $150,000 prize has been awarded to the “Water Gandhi of India” for his wildly successful work that turns abandoned, impoverished “dust bowls” into lush villages bustling with life again using an ancient method of rainwater harvesting. For teaching thousands of villagers in India’s most arid region how to build earthen dams to catch the monsoon rains and revitalize their land, Rajendra Singh was honored Friday with the 2015 Stockholm Water Prize. 30 years ago, Singh went to the poverty-stricken state of Rajasthan with the aim of setting up health clinics. He was told by villagers, however, that their greatest...

    Whether he wears high heels or not, Jenner’s still what his Creator made him--a guy.

Life for the Lib-Left tumbled along like tumbling tumbleweeds down the empty streets of America’s western ghost towns over ensuing decades.

    The LGBT-Gestapo adapts rather quickly.  After Memories Pizza raised $842,432 in just a few days, and Arlene’s Flowers raised over $173 thousand on GoFundMe, the Gaystapo couldn’t let Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of the now-shuttered Sweet Cakes by Melissa, use that fundraising platform. A GoFundMe account was established for the Kleins, and raised over $6,000, until the website took it down. The website GoFundMe said in a statement Saturday that it took down the page because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.” “The...

During a two-hour interview Friday night, Jenner said to a noticeably puzzled Diane Sawyer, “I’ve always been more on the conservative side.” Still in shock, Sawyer then asked if he’s a Republican. Jenner responded in the affirmative, ”Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.” Jenner also said he was a Christian and not a...

    Over the past decade, there have been two reports of open carriers being attacked.   In one case, the attacker tried to grab the openly carried pistol; in the other case, the reason for the attack is unknown.  Both attacks failed.  There have been two other reports of open carriers having their firearm stolen.  One of those cases was in an area where an openly carried firearm was required to be unloaded. It is more likely for concealed carriers to be attacked, because the attackers do not know that they are armed.   The vast majority of criminals do not want...

    Ancient society morality was based on concentric circles, with the free male of that tribe at the center, females and children farther out, foreign and slaves at the bottom. Christianity held that all were equally valid before God, even if not necessarily the same in real life. You may have a master in the world, but your soul was equally valid. That was revolutionary at the time. Liberalism has brought back the old concentric rings of value. The woman is worth more than a man, hired first, her opinion more valid from her experience. The non-Caucasian is worth more; that...

While Melissa Harris-Perry laments the plight of inner-city black women (and beclowns herself by asking Eric Holder to “quack for us”), she also accumulates quite a lot of loot along the way.  In 2012, she tweeted pictures of her latest renovation project in New Orleans—not her first round of “This Old House”--she and hubby James Perry renovated another fixer-upper in 2009. (James, speaking about...

    Coach is Right ^ | 4/23/15 | Michael D. Shaw
    We must journey back to March, 1987, and the United Nations document entitled Our Common Future: Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, to discover what is probably the only universally agreed upon—if nebulous and contradictory—definition of “sustainable development,” the precursor of “sustainability,” viz. Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts: the concept of ‘needs’, in particular the essential needs of the world’s poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and the idea of...

    There is no one way to prevent school shootings-- Most school shooters leave a trail of warning signs that are either not noticed or not responded to In April 1999, we were all stunned by the news that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had attacked and killed students at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado and, more recently, in December 2012, that Adam Lanza, after killing his mother at home, then massacred twenty-six staff and students at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. These events evoke dread of potential events, a quest to understand why they occurred, and ways...

    In rural Pottawotamie county in Oklahoma, the Sheriff appreciates the efforts of armed citizens.  I was able to get in touch with the elder Alvin Cleere.   His son had captured a burglar by being observant.   The son, also named Alvin, had noticed a pickup truck at an property were it did not belong.  He checked things out and found that the truck was loaded with stolen goods.   From kfor.com: He discovered the truck was loaded with stolen property, matresses, fixtures- even a kitchen sink. This fed up crime fighter pulled the 45 from his pickup. “That...

    Faithful readers of this blog will recall a recent post about low morale in the Army. Go here to read about it. Now we have this story which succinctly demonstrates why the morale is plummeting. On Monday, Army ROTC cadets at an Arizona State University campus were reportedly pressured into participating in an event allegedly designed to promote awareness of sexual violence against women, the Washington Times reported. The event, according to reports, required cadets to walk around campus wearing red high heel shoes.Last year, the Times said, the Army encouraged cadets to voluntarily participate in what was billed as...

    If you haven't read David French's piece in NRO concerning the John Doe investigations and the tactics deployed in them under the direction of liberal Democrat Milwaukee County DA John Chisholm, please do so.A number of conservative activists in Wisconsin who had the temerity to support Governor Scott Walker and his efforts to curb public sector unions found their homes raided by police,their property confiscated and were told by the authorities they could tell no one about what happened not even their attorneys. This was done under the order of Chisholm who has also directly targeted Walker in a John...

    #1 North Auburn Gresham Chicago, IL Chicago, Illinois has a murder rate that seems to be increasing yearly and a major reason is because of the crime that happens in the North Auburn Gresham neighborhood. This neighborhood which occupies the 60620 zip code has a violent crime rate of 73.5 per 1,000 residents. The chances of becoming a victim in this section are 1 in 14, which is actually on the low side for many of Chicago's rougher areas. The entire south side of Chicago seems to be an evil playground that won't stop its madness until the whole city...

    The Daily Targum of Rutgers University ^ | April 14, 2015 | Kenya O'Neill
    As a first year, I came into the University knowing I was passionate about social justice, but I did not necessarily have the vocabulary and resources to articulate my beliefs. I knew that there were practices in place that exploit marginalized people economically, but I did not know that the driving force behind this was called unregulated capitalism. I knew that there was a difference between the way half of my family lived versus the other half, but I did not know the driving force behind these differences was due to institutionalized racism. I knew that there were more than...

    [snip]My mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread butter on bread on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can't remember getting e. Coli. Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake or at the beach instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.
