    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...

    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?

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...

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.

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...

    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...

    What if you go to use your debit card but find you have a $100 spending limit — even if you have more money in your account? Right now, the idea is a bargaining chip being used by some of the nation's biggest banks, including JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup. The change would have a big impact on shoppers. The average family spends $122 on groceries every week, so a simple trip to the supermarket might in the future require a stop at the ATM. It all goes back to new rules that Congress is considering aimed...

    It’s zero hour for the DREAM Act...For two years, Barack Obama failed—or, if you prefer, refused—to nudge along a major immigration bill. The last-ditch hope is that departing Democrats, and a few Republicans, somehow band together in the lame-duck session and pass a law allowing illegal immigrants who came to the United States as minors to gain citizenship. Harry Reid promised to bring up the bill for a Senate cloture vote this week. Republicans vowed to scuttle it... But as Chicago congressman Luis Gutiérrez prepares for a rally at a church in Brooklyn, the DREAM Act seems like the end...

    By P.J. Gladnick | November 24, 2010 | 21:20 It seems that whenever you hear about a "rightwing" hate crime nowadays, it turns out the the perpetrator turns out to be a leftwinger...much to the disappointment of liberals who continue to maintain the fiction about a violent Tea Party movement. And the latest case of a violent "rightwinger" who turns out to really be a leftwinger comes from my own county of Broward here in South Florida. With my condolences to the left who have been "robbed" of yet another example of supposed Tea Party "hate crime," here is a...

    Court documents filed last week reveal Islamic extremists have obtained personal contact information on members of the defiant Facebook group "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day." Zachary Chesser, who provided the information, pled guilty to "communicating threats" and renounced jihad, but the damage was done. Prosecutors say he "seriously endangered the lives of innocent people who will remain at risk for many years to come."This lasting effect makes it all the more frustrating that authorities did not charge him sooner. He had made very similar threats against the producers of South Park weeks before. The case highlights the urgent need for better...
  • Left-Wing nutjob "blogger/part-time radio host" threatens to KILL Supreme Court Justices

    From (a left-wing blog/ranting site for leftists in Seattle, run by David Goldstein, local Marxist and sometimes-radio-show host: Our Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment in there for a reason, and that was to enable the People to protect themselves against tyranny. In fact, it was Thomas Jefferson who said that it’s good for a country to have a revolution every twenty years. I hope that’s not where we’re going, but, you know, if the Republicans take our nation the way they promise to take it, my fellow patriots on the left are going to start looking toward those...

    Bill Clinton sought to persuade Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for Senate during a trip to Florida last week — and nearly succeeded. Meek agreed — twice — to drop out and endorse Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent bid in a last-ditch effort to stop Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee who stands on the cusp of national stardom. Meek, a staunch Clinton ally from Miami, has failed to broaden his appeal around the state and is mired in third place in most public polls, with a survey today showing him with just 15 percent of the vote....

    GREECE, NEW YORK--A Greece man loaded his car with a shotgun, hunting knives, a flare gun, baseball bat and handcuffs and set off en route to Washington, D.C., with plans to engage law enforcement and possibly kill former Vice President Dick Cheney, according to the Secret Service. The Secret Service detained the man, Ian Rotunno, on Oct. 7 and this week charged him with threats against a former president. Rotunno told Secret Service agents that, as well as planning to kill Cheney, he intended to go to the Texas ranch of former President George W. Bush and murder him also,...

    In a video that quickly circulated around the internet, a CBS affiliate correspondent in Chicago can be shouting down a WIND radio talk show host as he tried to ask hard-hitting questions of former White House chief of staff and current mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel. Now, Chicago Police say that CBS2′s Jay Levine must be held responsible for threatening the radio host with physical assault and have reportedly issued a warrant for his arrest.

    It was a startling breach of security when the now-infamous shoe thrower got as close to President Bush as he did. Equally sobering was Sajid Ali Khan‘s “daring, courageous, lunatic” book plugging on Sunday. While the image of something nearly sailing over an oblivious Obama’s head arouses immature giggling in some (read: me), we certainly should take these incidents seriously and protect public officials at all costs. Most people harbor no ill intentions, but it only takes one deranged person to inflict maximum harm—and they only have to be successful once. Sarah Palin has received her share of threats from...
