    Rights: A Ninth Circuit Court ruling that students can't wear American flag T-shirts because they may offend Mexican students celebrating Cinco de Mayo is a ridiculous yet dangerous assault on the First Amendment. On Sept. 17, more than four years after Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., sent students home for wearing American flag t-shirts, an 11-judge Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled that it was the right choice, "tailored to avert violence and focused on student safety." The decision upheld the court's three-judge ruling in February that justified the school's actions based on tensions between Mexican...

    The Stars and Stripes are at the center of controversy. At least at Larry Murphree’s home. “I want it to go away. It’s such a minor little thing and they keep coming after me,” he explained. “They” is Murphree’s homeowner’s association. He’s lived in the Sweetwater community for years, and been at odds with the HOA for more than two. All over a flag. The veteran decided to put one in his flower pot, and has been fined as a result. “They just sent me a letter that says I owe them around $8,000 and they put a foreclosure lien...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican heritage celebration Cinco de Mayo, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on...

    Desecration: A U.S. flag with the president's face replacing the field of stars resurfaces at the March on Washington's 50th anniversary, turning the symbol of freedom many have fought and died for into a campaign prop. It has been a while since President Obama accepted his first nomination among faux Greek columns in Denver in 2008. But judging from the reappearance of the "Obama flag" at a march celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech, the cult of personality that has risen around him has not been diminished or discouraged. That flag first appeared in March 2012...

Workers raised thousands of flags on streetlamps in and around the capital along routes that the president will take during his three-day visit, which begins on Wednesday next week.

An enduring question ever since the manned moon landings of the 1960s has been: Are the flags planted by the astronauts still standing? Now, lunar scientists say the verdict is in from the latest photos of the moon taken by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC): Most do, in fact, still stand. "From the LROC images it is now certain that the American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11,"...

It has an image of Obama in the blue section where the stars are normally located. A similar flag was available for sale on eBay for $12.95.

As we raised the American flag to begin our efforts in favor of traditional marriage, a group of people standing on the opposite side of the street – in front of City Hall – were about to do the same. However, they were not raising old glory. Instead they were hoisting the very symbol of the opposition: a rainbow flag, with the approval of city mayor Matthew Ryan.

    Go ahead and laugh at him, the way Gotham City laughs at the playboy antics of Bruce Wayne, and yes, his hair is more ridiculous and hard to believe than Charlie Crist’s marriage to novelty-products heiress Carole Rome, but Donald Trump is every so (not-often-enough) often Batman under all that bluster. He’s offering to buy out some of the Muslim investors in the property they want to build the Ground Zero Victory Mosque on. He’s offering 25% above the actual value of the land. The Muslims will refuse, because the front company Islam setup for this conquest monument, Cordoba House,...

    Afghans protest Quran burning plan, torch US flag KABUL, Afghanistan – Hundreds of angry Afghans burned a U.S. flag and chanted "Death to the Christians" on Thursday to protest plans by a small American church to torch copies of the Muslim holy book on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Religious and political leaders across the Muslim world, as well as several U.S. officials, have asked the church to call off the plan, warning it would lead to violence against Americans. Iraq, worried that it will unleash a backlash against all Christians, has beefed up security near churches.

    “If we move from that location, the story will be the radicals have taken over the discourse, the headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. Our national security now hinges on how we negotiate this, how we speak about it. The battlefront is between moderates of all sides… and the radicals on all sides,” he said. Moving the project to another location would strengthen Islamist radicals’ ability to recruit followers and will likely increase violence against Americans, the imam said. Tonight, on CNN’s “Larry King,” Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf confirmed everything we’ve thought about him....

    On rare occasions, a book will appear that can alter the tide of public policy. Such a book is Conduct Unbecoming: How Barack Obama is Destroying The Military and Endangering Our Security, by Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson (Regnery, 2010), released this day. It is a book so compelling, so revelatory, so frightening that it must prompt only one conclusion: our current international circumstances are no accident. They are the product of a philosophy so at odds with American tradition, so at variance with American values, so contrary to the very idea of American exceptionalism, that it virtually repudiates American history....

    Members of the New Black Panther Party showed up in Gainesville Monday to let The Dove World Outreach Center know it is outraged by its plan to burn the Koran. "I believe in peace but if you aggress me, I am going to fight back," said State Chairman of the New Black Panther Party Mikhail Muhammad. The church plans to burn the holy book Saturday on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The pastor's plan has reached all the way to Afghanistan where Monday hundeds of demonstrators burned a cardboard effigy of the Gainesville pastor, Terry Jones. "We are...

    Security officials told the student they focus on diversity at the school and they don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable. A high school student in Northglenn is upset that campus security told him to remove the large American flags flying from his pickup truck because it might make others uncomfortable. Jeremy Stoppel told 7NEWS he got a ticket at Northglenn High School last Thursday for squealing his tires. He said he deserved that ticket and deserved having his parking lot pass suspended for two weeks. But he’s upset that campus security then told him he can’t fly his 3 feet...

    U.S. Embassy in Kabul ^ | Monday, September 6, 2010
    The United States government in no way condones such acts of disrespect against the religion of Islam, and is deeply concerned about deliberate attempts to offend members of religious or ethnic groups. The embassy wants to emphasize that we strongly condemn the offensive messages, which are contrary to U.S. government policy and deeply offensive to Muslims especially during the month of Ramadan. President Obama made clear in Cairo in his speech on June 4, 2009 that he considers it part of his responsibility as President to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they occur. And during his recent Iftar...

    Logans Warning ^ | Sept 4th, 2010 | Christopher Logan
    Earlier this week the 57 state Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), stated they want the US Government to step in and stop Dove World Outreach Center’s upcoming “Burn a Koran Day”. Just a day later I posted about an Indonesian Muslim site that was whining about the same day, and today we learn that Muslim madness is spreading. As thousands of Indonesian Muslims have taken to the streets, in protest against Pastor Jones and Dove. They are obviously against our freedoms, and this is just one more reason to end all Muslim immigration.
