Old Communist habits die hard--especially when the Obama administration is working so diligently to keep them alive
Can Congress Thwart Obama's Lifeline to the Castros?

 By Arnold Ahlert Full Story

On Wednesday, President Obama announced that the U.S. and Cuba will reestablish diplomatic ties. "This is what change looks like," the president declared. It remains to be seen if Congress will embrace the Communist dictatorship with as much gusto.

Idiot spray-paints # on Dan's church . . . and the pastor offers the most awesome response ever
 By Dan Calabrese Full Story

I got a phone call yesterday morning from my pastor, wanting my help with a matter that had come up. That in itself is not unusual, but the nature of the matter was. In recent weeks we'd had a series of break-in attempts at the church, and while they hadn't succeeded in getting inside the building, they had stolen the very large grill we keep outside for church barbecues and other special events. Well that can be replaced, although not cheaply.

I don't know if you've followed the case of Sweet Cakes by Melissa. This is the now-closed bakery in Oregon that has become a target of state officials because its Christian owners declined to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding.

Is the Clinton Email Coverup Unraveling?
 By Matthew Vadum Full Story

Federal investigators may be closer to seizing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's illicit off-site email server as evidence emerges that she transmitted classified information through it and that key Obama White House officials knew about her clandestine email account for years.

Anti-2nd Amendment gun smuggler, Democrat Leland Yee, headed to prison
 By Robert Laurie Full Story

Hey, remember Leland Yee? Sure you do. He was a left-wing State Senator who represented California's 8th district. He also ran for Mayor of San Francisco, and was generally considered a Bay Area political fixture. He spent most of his time trying to do away with guns and violent video games.

State Of Palestine and Islamic State Highlight International Double Standards
 By David Singer Full Story

UNESCO, the United Nations and just this week - the Vatican - have recognised that the “State of Palestine” exists—despite the fact that it lacks all four basic requirements laid down in Article 1 of the Montevideo Convention 1933:

“The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: a ) a permanent population; b ) a defined territory; c ) government; and d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”

Unconstitutional Court Rulings
 By Douglas V. Gibbs Full StoryIf you look inside the pages of the United States Constitution, among the expressly granted authorities to the federal government, you will never find judicial review. In fact, the judicial branch was originally intended to be the weakest of the three branches of government. Yet, using the power of judicial review, of which the courts granted to themselves largely based on the written opinion of Chief Justice John Marshall regarding the Marbury v. Madison ruling in 1803, the Supreme Court recently set the U.S. Constitution upon the final path towards extinction with rulings regarding marriage, health care, and elections.

Obama and Cameron in on blocking heroic Kurds from fighting ISIS

Courageous Kurds are a minority of one in standing up to ISIS and now the most self-centered friendship in the world is seeking to block them.

Montanans Must Seek Independence from CSKT Water Compact
 By Guest Column --Lawrence Kogan Full Story

July 4th celebrations are a time for recalling the birth and exceptionalism of our great nation. The United States of America has remained a unique global experiment in which Enlightenment-era principles (political, social, economic, scientific, philosophical and legal) have been deployed to successfully promote and defend our natural rights-based individualism and freedoms, especially private property. This 4th of July is particularly noteworthy, because it is both the 239th year since the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the 800th year since the signing of the English Magna Carta.

The Magna Carta strongly influenced the drafting of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights. Its significance to Americans lies primarily in its guarantee to “We the People” of certain rights and its binding of an oppressive sovereign (government at all levels) to the rule of law. These documents together memorialize the Founding Fathers’ distrust of concentrated political power and confidence that representative government, the idea of a supreme law and independent judicial review can serve as indispensable counterweights to tyranny.

Reality versus Fantasy - Obama’s Proxy War In Syria
 By Eddie Pedersen Full Story

The Kurdish people are fighting our terrorist enemies and losing their lives in the process, and it's not just men, 30% of Kurdish fighters are now female fighters, who can never be captured alive. Think about that the next time you can't find a shopping cart at the local grocery store. Think about it when you're grilling hot dogs and burgers this Fourth of July, or when you hear the national anthem this weekend. These men and women fight in your place. Think about what you have done for them.

Trump hurts the GOP brand??? I don’t think they need any help
 By Dr. Laurie Roth Full Story

There are no perfect candidates among the GOP hopefuls.  Some are more conservative and some are less conservative – thus the establishment group vs. the TEA Party group.  Now, we have billionaire business mogul and TV personality Donald Trump building his Presidential candidacy and going for the GOP nomination.  He is apparently scaring the ‘Rino’s’ out of the GOP establishment because he is actually competing up there with Jeb Bush polls and is not for sale.

What is Donald Trump saying that is causing such an upset?

Interesting Reparations for Global Warming

I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

Senate Puts Self-Interest Ahead of Public Interest
 By Canadian Taxpayers Federation--Aaron Wudrick   --Canada

(This commentary ran in the Toronto Sun on Friday, July 3, 2015)

Imagine there was a rule in our justice system where a convicted criminal could avoid a jail term by simply refusing to show up at prison. This would no doubt strike most people as a ridiculous loophole.

Exposing Hollywood Pedophiles
 By Cliff Kincaid   --American Politics

Director Amy Berg exposed the cover-up of pedophilia in the Catholic Church in her 2006 Oscar-nominated documentary, “Deliver Us from Evil.” On Friday night, July 3, New Yorkers can see her new explosive documentary on how pedophiles operate in Hollywood and cover up their crimes. Her film, “An Open Secret,” is being shown at the Cinema Village at 22 East 12th Street in New York City.

Jimmy Carter says Obama’s had ‘minimal’ global successes, bemoans diminished US prestige and respect

China’s Carbon Prices Collapse

Beijing has made a lot of headlines recently for its eco-friendly target setting, and central to many of these plans has been the implementation of regional carbon markets, and eventually the creation of a national system. So far things are not going exactly according to plan. Prices in five of China’s carbon markets have fallen sharply.

Basing their decision on “inartful drafting” tags the majority as “inartful dodger
 By Guest Column--- Jay Sekulow   --American Healthcare

VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia—A majority of the Supreme Court in King v. Burwell got it wrong.  Instead of applying the ObamaCare law as written, the 6-3 majority took a bold step and actually rewrote the law.

A key part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) says the subsidies are available only to Americans who enrolled “through an exchange established by the state”—a clear reason, as we argued in our amicus brief, that the subsidies should not be available to those in states without their own exchanges.

A Circular Firing Squad Isn’t Just a Joke

Let’s face it, there really are sixteen Republicans angling for the nomination of their party:

That’s eight men with experience as state Governors, five that are (or have been) U.S. Senators, two are (or were) CEOs of major corporations and one who is a noted pediatric surgeon. One of the CEOs is female, two of the Senators are of Hispanic descent, and one candidate is of Indian ancestry while another is African-American.
