Leibham believes the caller, who told a station clerk it was a bad idea for the station to do business with the senator, made the call from a phone registered to the school district.

    In his first weekly update to his constituents in Congressional District 22 following a malicious mailing to his Boca Raton congressional office containing a non-toxic white powder substance, Congressman Allen West was in no mood for mincing words. Even before the incident, it’s no secret that West has been the target of the Democrat apparatus in both Washington D.C. and here in South Florida. During last year’s election cyle, West sustained continuous personal attacks, including the public disclosure of his Social Security number by the Democrat Party in an opposition mailer, all which were deflected by his ‘teflon-like’ demeanor and...

    Palm Beach Post Staff Writers Updated: 2:45 p.m. Friday, April 8, 2011 Posted: 1:51 p.m. Friday, April 8, 2011 A letter containing white powder and a threat was opened at Congressman Allen West’s campaign office in the city this afternoon, prompting a HazMat response and an FBI investigation, officials said.

Staffers in West’s office in Washington and West Palm Beach said they were aware of the threat but didn’t know...

    Bomb Threats: Wisconsin News Omits That Katherine Windels, Woman Charged in Making Death Threats Against Republican Senators, Is a School Teacher (video) So much for the age of civility and balanced media… when will the leftists at MSNBC or Media Matters cover any of this? In Wisconsin, a 26-year-old woman has been charged in sending death threats, via emails, to WI Republican senators because of their support of Gov. Scott Walker’s budget bill. What Wisconsin news sources have conveniently omitted in much of their coverage is that Katherine Windels is a SCHOOL TEACHER. A pre-school and kindergarten teacher. Click here...

    Rochester, N.Y. - An email sent Friday to state lawmakers threatened violence for politicians, school children, the wealthy and reporters. The letter, Titled "Time to Kill," was written anonymously. "My group is going to do everything possible to provoke terrorist attacks on New York by al-Qaida, and by Tea Party nut cases, and by religious extremeists, lone wolves and anyone else who we can provoke into picking up a gun. We want to create anarchy," states the writer. Politicians are not the only ones mentioned. "If we attack a school bus full of kids, it may have no effect on...

    Investigators on Friday looked into an additional violent threat by email — this one against Gov. Scott Walker — allegedly sent by the same Cross Plains child care provider already charged with emailing death threats to Republican state senators. The threat against Walker, emailed Feb. 17, uses language including "watch your back Adolf Walker" and "we will not hesitate to punch where it hurts." It says it's from Katherine Windels. Journalists discovered it as part of a review of thousands of emails sent to Walker's state account in response to his controversial budget repair bill. The Department of Justice was...

    Montreal police are investigating a student who made threats against a conservative club at McGill University, even though university officials determined the student’s threats about jihad and wanting to “shoot everyone in the room” were harmless. A spokesman for the Montreal Police Service told the Toronto Star they take the threat allegedly made by Haaris Khan seriously. Khan attended a viewing of the documentary “Indoctrinate-U,” sponsored by Conservative McGill, a student organization affiliated with Canada’s Conservative Party. During the viewing, Khan is accused of making death treats using his Twitter account.

    On the day that the bill passed the Wisconsin Assembly effectively ending 50 years of collective bargaining in Wisconsin and eviscerating the ability of public unions to raise money through dues, a new front opened in the battle for the future of Wisconsin families. Bagpipes blaring, hundreds of firefighters walked across the street from the Wisconsin Capitol building, stood outside the Marshall and Ilsley Bank (M&I Bank) and played a few tunes — loudly. Later, a group of firefighter and consumers stopped back in at the bank to make a few transactions. One by one they closed their accounts and...

    The Democrat unions have given us a clear view of what defines them. All any sensible person needs to see is the video of these protestors to rightly conclude they are savages. Their behavior speaks volumes. There are jobless people hurting all over the country and these cretins are acting like their plight is that of early 20th century Russian peasants because they may have to pay a small percentage of their health benefits instead of the tax payer paying all of it. They represent the lowest common denominator society has to offer and they deserve to lose their jobs...

    So this is what the new age of civility, where we are all carefully watching those horrible and violent conservatives, looks like. The Wisconsin DOJ is investigating a rash of death threats against Wisconsin Republicans after the GOP representatives passed a bill stripping collective bargaining privileges from many state government workers. Of course, when a few Democrats received violent threats about health care reform, the response was lavish attention in the left-leaning blogosphere, culminating in sweeping accusations towards all conservatives of complicity in violent and abusive discourse. Liberal luminaries sagely shook their heads sadly then and after Tucson, wisely lecturing...

    When President Obama, The New York Times, MSNBC, Sheriff Dupnik and many, many others called for a change in the tone of political discourse, who knew it was actually a call to ramp up the violent imagery, thuggery, and now, even vile threats?The Wisconsin protests have been chock full of comparisons of Republicans to the worst elements in history, threats to reporters and counter-protesters, mean-spirited rantings, and police-defying stormings of government buildings. Now, we get actual, specific threats to lawmakers and their families. Congratulations liberals! You’ve really shown you can step it up from Palin’s “targeted” congressional districts!

    Obama's Chilling Crew   By Andrew | Tuesday, April 28, 2009 Why is there so little media investigation of the financing behind Barack Obama’s early political sponsor—and now convicted felon—Tony Rezko?      The dual US-Syrian citizen Rezko--who assisted Obama in the purchase of his Chicago mansion--was heavily funded by loans from Iraqi-British ex-Baathist billionaire Nadhmi Auchi.  According to testimony at Rezko’s trial, Obama met Auchi at an April 3, 2004 event at Rezko’s home during Obama’s 2004 US Senate campaign.  The Times of London reports discovering, “state documents in Illinois recording that Fintrade Services, a Panamanian company, lent...
