Global Ministries of Disinformation confirmed

It was a year ago this month that I reported information revealed by my source within the Department of Homeland Security about the existence of “cyber warriors” working for the regime of Barack Hussein Obama. The initial report was published on 6 February 2013 titled DHS Insider: Obama’s cyber warriors & preparing for collapse and detailed, according to this source, government operatives working on behalf of Obama.

Appeals judge: California school was right to ban ‘offensive’ American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo

Yesterday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decided that, back in 2010, a California’s Live Oak High School was right to ban American Flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The case stemmed from an incident almost four years ago, where students wearing shirts emblazoned with the United States Flag were ordered to turn them inside out or remove them. The students refused.

In desperate fear of Michelle Obama, Barack and Joe Biden go jogging

If you were an embattled President facing recent polls which suggest the American people feel the world has little or no respect for you, you’d probably want to do something about your image. Obviously, that means you’d film yourself taking a quick two minute jog around the White House, and then crack jokes about how your wife was a fitness taskmaster.

You Should Ask Whose Property Is It

Even for someone who learned at their grandmother’s knee that what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable the knowledge that some things are mine and some things aren’t came early. The whole idea of freedom rests upon the idea that within the wider world which is society there is a smaller circle that outlines what is personal and what is communal. Even in monasteries where monks have taken vows of poverty they refer to my cell, my candle and my prayers.

Michael Oren:  ”What happens if we can’t make peace?” ‎

Michael Oren, the former Israel Ambassador to the US in a recent interview, said Israel should consider unilaterally withdrawing from parts of the West Bank and declaring its own borders if the current peace negotiations with the Palestinians fail. This idea has often been raised, and rejected, by Israeli leaders across the political spectrum.

Questions You’re Asking About Cakes, Gays, and Religious Freedom

Cases have been popping up across the country where individuals have declined to bake cakes or take photos for same-sex wedding ceremonies—and government has punished them. This week, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) vetoed a bill that would have put religious liberty protections in place in her state. We sat down with Ryan Anderson, Heritage’s William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and a Free Society, to get some answers about this debate.

Susan Rice’s Revealing Encore on “Meet the Press”

We have often pointed out how NBC, along with its cable-news arm MSNBC, are networks that work in the service of the Obama administration. That was never more clear than when National Security Adviser Susan Rice visited a Sunday morning talk show last weekend for the first time since her disastrous and dishonest appearances on September 16, 2012, just days after the terrorist attacks in Benghazi took the lives of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens.

WSJ’s Kim Strassel: Obama using IRS abuse scandal to expand IRS abuse

You didn’t really think the attention on IRS abuse of conservative groups - not from the MSM, of course, but from plenty of other sources - would actually result in the stopping of the abuse. Did you? Because that’s not how things work in the era of Obama. Now, when a scandal comes to light, the White House takes action - the action being to make the abuse even worse. All in the name of fixing the problem it insists does not exist, of course. The Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel explains how new IRS rules since the scandal broke have actually subjected conservative groups to more egregious abuse:

Uganda’s Anti-Gay Laws and Leftist Silence

On Monday, President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda signed into law harsh, anti-gay legislation. The law includes provisions that would jail repeat offenders for life, outlaw any promotion of homosexuality, and require the Ugandan people to denounce it. In the face of genuine persecution of gay people, of course, the LGBT community and their supporters are conspicuously silent. And while the Obama administration has released a statement criticizing the law, most black activists remain completely MIA as well, including the man leading the charge against the anti-gay marriage agenda in America, Eric Holder.

Time To Register Books And Put Reasonable Restrictions On The 1st Amendment

President Obama and his progressive allies have told us that even the most draconian of gun laws must be passed because If we save even one life from gun violence, it’s worth it. While that’s an amazingly ignorant, infantile, and even downright silly statement, it does neatly sum up a nanny-state philosophy that is fueling a nationwide assault on the second shall not be infringed amendment as well as law-abiding gun owners across the nation.
