  • Gary Johnson: finally a Libertarian who will actually help a Republican candidate

    05/01/2012 8:12:11 AM PDT · by jmaroneps37 · 19 replies ^ | May1, 2012 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    How many times have we seen a Republican lose a close race where a Libertarian candidate’s votes added to his/her total would have been the margin of victory? Many conservatives moan “If only the Libertarian wasn’t in the races, we’d win.” That’s nonsense of course given that most Libertarians are basically sideways Democrats anyway. When they run their own candidates Libertarians usually take more Democrat votes than Republican votes. Libertarians are no friends of Republicans, but this year things should be different. Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson’s presence in this year’s race has the potential to be a real...

    You don't need to have a vowel at the end of your name to be a mobster. Mike Gillich Jr., the former Biloxi striptease lounge owner who was convicted for his role in the 1987 slaying of Judge Vincent Sherry and his councilwoman wife Margaret Sherry in Biloxi, MS, has died at 82 as reported by Anita Lee for the Sun Herald: After he was imprisoned for the crime, Gillich agreed to cooperate with federal authorities in solving the murders. Gillich surrendered the name of the hit man and also implicated former Biloxi Mayor Pete Halat in the plot. The...
  • Jesse Jackson’s false sermon on Trayvon Martin(FL)

    Civil rights icon Jesse Jackson took to the pulpit and the classroom in Miami to sermonize and implore African Americans to vote and to turn the death of Trayvon Martin into action. “There are lessons in this tragic matter of Trayvon Martin’s death,” Jackson said at 93rd Street Community Baptist Church on Sunday. “It defines white and black in this season -- that racism is alive and doing much too well.” So are half-truths and distortions – if Jackson’s speech is any measure. After mentioning the deaths and martyrdom of black activists and youths, Jackson brought up Trayvon’s death Feb....
  • Soros Group: Calling People “Illegal” is “Hate Crime”

    There is a lonely, barren place in what passes as the logic center of the brains of members of the communist Left. Or, we could simply say that they are liars. That is certainly true of leftist leaders—they are indeed liars, but many millions of followers of the Left are more likely just deceived. That is A-OK with the power masters of the communist Left, because it is their aim to deceive. I came across a promotional video for a campaign to abolish the word “illegal” when referring to people who are in our country illegally. Yes, that is correct....

    In times past the Forward newspaper celebrated the fast of Yom Kippur with a feast and in keeping with that tradition it celebrated Israel's Independence Day by rewriting its anthem to remove the word "Jew" from it. The linguistic purge from the notoriously anti-Israel paper was meant as a way to help Muslims feel better about singing the Israeli national anthem. The yearning of the Jewish soul becomes the yearning of the Israeli soul and the eyes turned east no longer long for Zion, but the generic "our country". The proposal made by a self-proclaimed linguist seems rather devoid of...
  • Sheriff Arpaio: ‘I’ll Put up More Tents’ If Supreme Court Upholds Arizona Immigration Law

    ( – If the Supreme Court decides in favor of Arizona’s tough immigration bill, the Obama attorney arguing against SB 1070 predicted “mass incarceration” of Latinos. But Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told that he does not see that as a problem in his jurisdiction. “We lock up people all the time,” Arpaio said in a phone interview last week. “Since I started enforcement, we’ve arrested on the streets, investigated – in our jails over 51,000. “I didn’t see any problem, other than the fact that some activists and politicians in Washington (don’t) like me enforcing the illegal immigration...

    PJ Media has obtained Facebook postings from Department of Justice Voting Section employees demonstrating contempt for the states for which they have oversight authority under the Voting Rights Act, including for voter ID approval. One such posting demonstrates open contempt for Mississippi, a state which recently passed a photo voter identification law. The same Voting Section employees have the power to approve the law. On her Facebook page, Voting Section supervisory civil rights analyst Stephanie Celandine Gyamfi says about the people of Mississippi:“Disgusting and shameful. Hey, that should replace the state motto: ‘Mississippi: Disgusting and Shameful’. . . forget the...

    Today marks the 20th anniversary of America’s last major race riot. It took place in Los Angeles following the acquittal of three white LAPD officers on brutality charges in the beating of black motorist Rodney King. Unbeknownst to the officers, King’s beatdown was captured on videotape by eyewitness George Holliday. The video went “viral” in an age long before YouTube, with repeated airings by television newscasts around the world. The L.A.riot resulted in 53 deaths and nearly 2,400 injuries. The toll also included 7,000 fires, damages to some 3,100 businesses and nearly $1 billion in economic losses suffered by the...

    The Nevada State Education Association took exception to proposed legislation aimed at improving public school teaching. In Nevada, teachers who complete one year on the job are granted tenure and are virtually immune from dismissal. Under the proposed bill (AB225) a teacher could be dismissed after three years of poor performance. This new performance standard is a violation of teachers’ human rights says Lynn Warne, president of the Nevada State Education Association. “The expectation has been that once you clear that first year you have a secure job,” Warne said. “Teachers have planned their lives based on this expectation. To...

    Tricia Wittmann-Todd, the "pastoral life coordinator" who refused to circulate petitions in support of Referendum 74, the ballot measure to roll back Washington's same-sex "marriage" law, even though Archbishop J. Peter Sartain asked parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Seattle to do so, is at it again. This time, in her weekly message to parishioners of St. Mary's Church in Seattle, Tricia is commenting on the sixth and seventh chapter of Acts to imply that same-sex unions are called for because of the demands of "justice." She writes, "This story is a good reminder that ours is a very long and...

    An announcement of momentous import was made at the April 26th 2012 Board of County Commissioners meeting of Clackamas County, Oregon. Commissioner Jamie Damon revealed that Clackamas County would not be renewing their membership in “ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability USA” at the next annual dues deadline.

    Controlling a large number of people isn't easy. The United States alone consists of 312 million people spread out across nearly 4 million square miles. Add on nearly 500 million for the population of the European Union and another nearly 4 million square miles of territory. Then pile on Canada with 34 million people and another 4 million square miles, Australia with 22 million and 3 million square miles and a few other stragglers here and there, and the postmodern rulers of the progressive empire have to cope with nearly a billion people spread out across 15 million square miles....

    Last Sunday, CBS’ 60 Minutes broadcast “Christians of the Holy Land,” by Bob Simon, largely blaming Israel for an exodus of Christians from the Holy Land. The showing coincides with a growing international campaign to portray Israel as anti-Christian, showcasing Palestinian Christians as evidence. “Palestinian Christians, once a powerful minority, are becoming the invisible people, squeezed between a growing Muslim majority and burgeoning Israeli settlements,” the segment opened. “Israel has occupied the West Bank for 45 years.” But the harsher indictment came from a Palestinian Lutheran pastor and critic of Israel. “If you see what's happening in the West Bank,...

    After that fateful day of September 11th, 2001, Americans had a since of pride and stood hand in hand together simply because they were America. However, people did not rejoice in being American simply because they were American. They rejoiced because our enemy reminded us of the many things we take for granted such as our life, liberty, our pursuit of happiness, and our rights that protect us from becoming slaves to an oppressive state. A phrase that used to be coined throughout American culture was revitalized at this time: “It's a free country, let me do what I want.”...

Were an artist to paint a picture of a small boy looking at up at his flying kite as the space shuttle passed over Manhattan yesterday, no portrait of the story of America’s deliberate ruin at the hands of a single politician could ever come closer to the truth.
