Boehner is typical of Jackass GOP Leaders
By Jeff Crouere Friday, August 28, 2015
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! This week at a Colorado fundraiser House Speaker John Boehner stunned donors when he referred to Texas Senator Ted Cruz as a “jackass.” During remarks at the event for Congressman Scott Tipton, Boehner said he was grateful that Cruz was often campaigning for President, which kept that “jackass” away from Capitol Hill.
Of course if there is one person who is an expert on jackasses it is Boehner. Along with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Boehner hates Cruz and the small band of courageous conservatives who oppose the lame congressional leadership.
The Children of Illegal Immigrants Are Not Born American Citizens
By Tim Dunkin Friday, August 28, 2015
Once again, Donald Trump has managed to open up a robust national discussion about an issue that up to this point had been largely ignored by the political class. This time, the discussion is about so-called “birthright citizenship,” the idea that whenever a foreign national (regardless of legal status and with a very few exceptions) has a child on American soil, this child automatically becomes an American citizen from birth. This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to the issue of “anchor babies,” the children of illegal aliens who come to the United States so that they can have their children here, thus allowing the parents to remain as well, usually helping themselves to generous American benefit monies.
Our Immigration System Is Not Broken
By Dr. Robert R. Owens Friday, August 28, 2015
Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released?
In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants.
Kurds Are Surging – America Is Not
By Eddie Pedersen Friday, August 28, 2015
The Kurds are surging in Iraq again. Kurdish fighters are successfully attacking both the Islamic state and other terrorist factions in Syria and Iraq; as we saw with the Kurdish capture of many Iraqi villages two days ago. The recent Kurdish push in Iraq occurs in spite of Turkey’s President Erdogan and his counterproductive air campaign against Kurdish fighters. To make matters worse Kurdish hopes for autonomy rights in Iranian held areas will more or less cease to be an obtainable reality, if Tehran builds a viable nuclear weapon. Thusly faced with this grim nuclear reality the nation of Kurdistan is doing its best to utilize anything it can to strip Tehran of power and land. One would think these negatives would have the Kurds down and out but Kurdish will, national unity, and morale it is as strong as ever, it is just plain amazing. The spirit of the Kurdish people is compelling to say the least.
Paying the Media for Pro-U.N. Coverage
By Cliff Kincaid Friday, August 28, 2015
A CNN story blared, “The American stock market has surrendered a stunning $2.1 trillion of value in just the last six days of market chaos.” The ups and downs of the stock market have been seized upon by those leading a global campaign to steal trillions of dollars from the American people in the name of “sustainable development.”
One aspect of the campaign is a so-called “financial transaction tax,” endorsed by socialist and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which would even affect the stock trades of small investors. The proposal has a global component.
Hunger by Government Definition Is “Food Insecure”
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Thursday, August 27, 2015
As liberals complain that people are going hungry and the first lady transforms the school lunch fare to “healthy” offerings nobody seems to like, the federal government is spending plenty on “domestic food assistance to provide food for the hungry and other vulnerable populations in this country.”
According to the Congressional Research Service, there are many agencies that offer food assistance to the needy in this country, citizens, non-citizens, and illegals.
Ebeneezer Biden: Better at Giving Away Your Money Than His
By William Kevin Stoos Thursday, August 27, 2015
Recently, Ace Reporter Hugh Betcha—named Univision’s “Most Trusted Conservative Reporter, 2015,” and MSNBC’s “Reporter We Would Most Like to Hang Out With, 2015” overheard a discussion in the ObamaMedia about Republican politicians’ charitable giving habits. Since liberal politicians are so caring for the poor, since Hillary is taking a nose dive in the polls, and kindly Uncle Joe Biden is about to enter the race for President, Hugh decided to explore the would-be Democrat standard bearer’s history of charitable giving. Certainly his private giving must match his avowed love of and desire to help the poor.
But just when Hugh thought that there was no politician stingier than Barack Obama—who, before he became President, gave as little as .6% of his income to the poor—lo and behold we find that Obama had picked as his running mate, a man who gives far less to the poor than Obama himself. While Obama’s tax returns prior to his 2008 election reveal a portrait of a man who privately gives very little to the poor—less than any Republican Hugh knows—Joe Biden gave even less. In fact, Biden’s past history of charitable giving is so abysmally poor that he makes even Obama look like Santa Claus. Biden may well have been the stingiest man in the Senate before he became VP. For two of the most liberal politicians in Washington, they were embarrassingly conservative when it comes to reaching into their own pockets and helping the poor, whose cause they pretend to champion. If they thought that the public actually knew how little they do to help the poor, these two hypocrites would never again spout their populist drivel about Republican “trickle down” economics or criticize the Republicans for not doing enough to help the poor.
Planned Parenthood Audit Rejected
By Douglas V. Gibbs Thursday, August 27, 2015
California State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, requested an audit of Planned Parenthood. Her request was a response to videos by a pro-life organization using undercover style reporting revealing Planned Parenthood officials discussing selling the body parts of aborted babies on the black market. She intended that the audit of California’s Planned Parenthood locations would ensure the organization is not illegally profiting from the donation of aborted baby tissue. Her request was rejected by a State legislative committee on Tuesday, August 25.
Planned Parenthood contends the videos that exposed their alleged dealings in the body-tissue black market were deceptively edited and that the organization only seeks to cover the cost of shipping fetal tissue, which is used in medical research.
Move Over, Megyn Kelly, America is Calling

Stealing from Walmart still stealing
By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Thursday, August 27, 2015
In the new “legal relativism” and mob justice atmosphere that uses “social justice” as an excuse to loot and burn down stores in their neighborhoods, Everett Mitchell, the Director of Community Relations at the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus, stated during a discussion panel, “Best Policing Practices,” that prosecuting shoplifters from Walmart and Target is “aggressive police behavior.”
“I just don’t think they should be prosecuting cases for people who steal from Walmart. I don’t think that. I don’t think that Target, and all them other places – the big boxes that have insurance – they should be using the people that steal from there as justification to start engaging in aggressive police behavior.”
The #BlackLivesMatter Revolution Will Be Televised
By Matthew Vadum Thursday, August 27, 2015
Hoping to start a bloody “race war,” a black, gay, in-your-face Obama-supporting former TV reporter horrified Southwest Virginia TV viewers yesterday when he stalked and coolly murdered two white former TV station colleagues and wounded a white interview subject during a live broadcast.
The shooter, Vester Lee Flanagan II, 41, apparently a registered Democrat and former prostitute, said he attacked the three white people during the “standup” report about local tourism from the marina at Smith Mountain Lake as racial payback for white-supremacist Dylann Storm Roof’s June 17 attack in Charleston, S.C. that left nine black churchgoers dead. Roof, who reportedly confessed, also said he wanted to start a race war by committing acts of violence.
Trump’s not perfect, but neither is Megyn Kelly
By Judi McLeod Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Thin-skinned journalists of the latter day are getting to be just like Democrat politicians, insult them and they’ll soon demand an apology.
“On Tuesday, Fox News chief Roger Ailes said in a statement Donald Trump should apologize for a tirade of tweets aimed at Fox News host Megyn Kelly. (Fox News, Aug. 25, 2015)
Loud and Clear Politics For a Change
By Ray DiLorenzo Wednesday, August 26, 2015
The candidacy of Donald Trump is about much more than The Donald. It is about anger, frustration, dissatisfaction and resentment. It is about the growing anger that nothing gets done, frustration over a deaf and obese Federal Government, dissatisfaction when they do try to accomplish something and resentment when they don’t care when they are found incompetent. It is about a government that asserts that it knows best when it doesn’t. It is about insisting everything is on track when we know that it is off track.
It is about the mainstream news media that has taken sides and has partnered with government to dictate how we should behave and think. It is about cherry- picking news stories that boost your agenda or vice versa. It is about corruption at the highest levels of government, the media and their business cronies.
Virginia murderer’s manifesto: Angry about Charleston, says he was bullied for being gay and black
By Dan Calabrese Wednesday, August 26, 2015
We haven’t been all over this story all day because we didn’t figure you needed one more conservative news site presuming to give you up-to-the-minute updates. But we’re shaken like everyone else by the murders of Adam Ward and Alison Parker on live television this morning in Virginia. And we’re now learning more about the motives and the twisted mind of Vester Flanagan, who died this afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Flanagan had worked for a year as a reporter at WDBJ - the very same station that was broadcasting the live interview he invaded with gunfire early this morning.
Long past time to make English the official national language of the United States
By Al Kaltman Wednesday, August 26, 2015
“Language is a unifying instrument which binds people together. When people speak one language they become as one, they become a society”—S.I. Hayakawa
Donald Trump’s stance on illegal immigration is a timely reminder that assimilation (to a common language, culture and values) is what makes the United States exceptional. If we are to continue to be the greatest nation on earth then we must remain a melting pot. As Senator Hayakawa so eloquently explained, “The United States, a land of immigrants from every corner of the world, has been strengthened and unified because its newcomers have historically chosen ultimately to forgo their native language for the English language. We have all benefited from the sharing of ideas, of cultures and beliefs, made possible by a common language. We have all enriched each other.”
