Hollywood Sign
Hollywood Sign

For the life of me, I can’t figure out why sassy gays, frothy feminists, liberals in Hollywood, late night comedians and whiny atheists continue to rail against Christians while saying jack-squat against Islam.

Look, I get why Obama skips slamming Islam.  He grew up a Muslim. He’s got quite the Muslim name. And … despite all of his Jesus talk and twenty-years of being under the tutelage of Reverend “Goddam America” Jeremiah Wright’s discipleship, everything he says and does screams he’s way chummier with Mohammed than Jesus.

So … I get Obama’s reticence to rebuke the Religion Of Perpetual Rage — but what about you aforementioned cuties?  Why so silent, my darlings?  Could it be that thou has shriveled ‘nads and you’re terrified of taking on the real “religious” threat to your liberty and prefer to appear to be hardcore by beating on a non-threatening soft target?  Is that it?

I mean, c’mon folks.  Even the dullest among you have to concede that Christians represent zero material threat to your life/freedoms and thus your focus on them is about as ill-fitting as a small, A-cup bustier on Oprah.

Christianity doesn’t promote violent jihad.  Christianity doesn’t auger for Neil Patrick Harris’ death.  Christianity doesn’t cheerlead for the slaughter of Jews.  Christians don’t regard the unbaptized in their midst as unenlightened mongrels that must bow to the Golden Rule or be killed.  And Christians don’t cheer en masse when cartoonists are slaughtered for drawing cheeky cartoons about Jesus.

But Islam does.

For your information, here’s the worst thing a Church Lady wishes on you: If Church Lady had it her way, you’d be a repentant nice boy, wearing a Christian t-shirt, sitting on the front pew every Sunday singing Oh, The Blood Of Jesus, and voting for Mike Huckabee in 2016; and if not, well, so be it, they’ll still love you anyway.

Islam … eh … not so much.

No, if Achmed had it his way, because of your penchants, beliefs or lack thereof, you’d be subjugated or slaughtered.  If you don’t believe me, watch international news every now and then and/or read the Koran.  It’s quite different than Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Like, way different.

Another reason, I suppose, that those on the Left haven’t gotten too pissy with Islam is that the full force of its fascism hasn’t hit our shores …yet.  But it has Western Europe’s and it might do you some good, from an ongoing freedom standpoint, to look across the pond and see what multi-cultural yumminess has yielded up for our dull euro-bros – and do the opposite.

In Europe, you can actually go to jail for mocking Islam or burning a Koran, but you can talk crap about Christ and BBQ a Bible all day long over there.

In addition, it’s just a matter of time, with Europe’s diminishing birthrate and thinning of skin, before they’re Islam’s prison chick, mop head wig and all girlfriend.

Therefore, if you truly love yourself and love your liberty, you need to fight Islam tooth, fang and claw because if Islam ever solidly takes root here in the USA, we all can kiss our freedoms goodbye.

CJ Pearson
CJ Pearson

Much of America had a new adopted son when Georgia pre-teen CJ Pearson’s political video went viral this week.  My colleague Howard Portnoy noted that Barack Obama probably wouldn’t claim him – but I think millions of other Americans would.

CJ Pearson went full-bore backing up Rudy Giuliani’s now-infamous criticism of Obama: that he doesn’t love America.

“If you [Obama] really did love America, you would call [Islamic State] what it really is: an assault on Christianity, an assault on America and downright hate for the American values that our country holds — freedom of speech, freedom of religion and every single thing that our country stands for.

“I hope that one day people will get enough guts to speak out against your downright hatred for this nation.

“I want to applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama. Here [is] the truth of the matter: I don’t want to be politically correct. I don’t care about being politically correct at this point. President Obama, you don’t love America.”

So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that on Friday, young Mr. Pearson found himself locked out of his personal Facebook account.  (Emphasis added)

“On Friday, C.J. Pearson, a 12-year-old conservative from Georgia who posted a viral video supporting Rudy Giuliani, discovered that his personal Facebook page was locked. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com on Saturday, Pearson said he received a message from someone about 6 a.m. Friday. That’s when he learned his account and page had been locked for “suspicious activity.”

“He jumped through all of Facebook’s hoops, but wasn’t able to recover his account. So he created a new profile to take its place. His public page was not affected, he said, however, he can no longer administer the page. Fortunately, he said, a friend is helping post links to that page.

“As is so often the case in these situations, Facebook did not respond to his requests for help. Nor would they tell him what the alleged suspicious activity was. We reached out to Facebook, but the social media giant has so far refused to respond to our request for comments.”

This is far from the first time Facebook has suspended accounts after conservative users have criticized left-wing politicians or causes, especially Obama or his administration.  In October 2014, Veritas video maven James O’Keefe found his page deactivated and inaccessible:

“O’Keefe was trending on Facebook Thursday after his group Project Veritas’ latest video captured Colorado-based Greenpeace official Christen Topping describing a “ghetto” neighborhood in Aurora where ballots could be found in garbage cans for use by those seeking to commit voter fraud.”

O’Keefe reported that within 90 seconds of his discussing this problem live, with a “prominent national reporter,” his account access was miraculously restored.

And in January 2013, the popular Chicks on the Right bloggers found themselves locked out of their account, after criticizing the Obama administration (and in particular, then-spokesman Jay Carney), supposedly for having posted material that violated Facebook’s terms of use.  Facebook later acknowledged that there had been no violation, and apologized for Chicks on the Right having been “incorrectly warned.”

Interestingly, one of the Chicks on the Right, who goes by Mockarena, posted afterward that she got assistance from an actual conservative – and supporter of their blog – in the Facebook organization:

“We received an email from a representative at Facebook to a) apologize and b) offer her help at any time should we be faced with a similar problem again,” Mockarena wrote. “She also happens to be a supporter of our page! So contrary to popular belief, there are friendly conservatives who WORK for Facebook.”

We can hope that young CJ Pearson will make a similarly encouraging discovery as he deals with this latest example of Facebook locking out a high-profile conservative user.  We wouldn’t want a smart 12-year-old to end up sour and cynical about bias in social media.

CPAC 2015 Pre-View

CPAC stands for the Conservative Political Action Conference. Big woop! What does that mean? Well, in looking at some of the posts on Facebook and other online services, I can see that the Left believes it’s a bunch of stuffy, old, white, grey-haired guys that think the only good minority is one working for minimum wage.
‘Where did that come from? Can’t be from actual fact. Because leadership in the Republican party is as diverse, if not more so, than the Democrats leadership.

Look at the lineup, Governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. Representative Mia Love, Carly Fiorina, Senator Tim Scott and the list goes on. So how is it we let the Dem’s paint a picture of us as the modern day KKK? Marketing! You can lie about anything as long as you market it to the right people the right way.

To be clear, the Dems voted against ending slavery, against giving women the right to vote, and they started the KKK with the express intent to scare the blacks back into slavery or kill them off all together.

The Democrats have painted a picture that Republicans were responsible for all this. Like Brian Williams’ rescue from the downed chopper, it ain’t so!

President LBJ said he knew how to keep them n*****s voting for Democrats for 100 years. He was right. Keep anyone dependent on the government for food, shelter, money and so on and they will do anything you want them to do out of self-preservation.

Republicans have always fought for the rights of all people. All the misdirection from the Left can’t change that.
And let’s talk about this “war on women.”

Fact: Democrats historically pay their female staffers less than male staffers. The 2 so-called biggest Democrat party champions of women’s equality (Pelosi and Clinton) both paid woman 25 to 30 percent less than men. They could fix that with the stroke of a pen. But they don’t. That makes them hypocrites.

El Presidente says this is a travesty, that women should not have to fight for equal pay. Another hypocrite. Female White House staff make on average 27% less than their male counterparts. He has a pen and a phone, what’s the problem?

President Obama could pen an executive order to fix this problem overnight or maybe have his DOJ stop chasing law-abiding citizens and nonprofits around and actually enforce the law that’s been on the books since 1963.

When it comes to welfare, Republicans don’t want unlimited, endless hand-outs because we don’t want people dependent on the government from cradle to grave. There are people on welfare in some way, shape, or form for 20 years (or more). How do you strengthen a person’s self-esteem? Teach them to care for themselves. Teach them to feed their family. Most adults want to be independent. News Flash! Living off the government is not independence!

Instead of taxing our community colleges with illegal, undocumented, improperly registered humans in this country, how about we make room and retrain those millions of Americans who are out of work? Instead of simply giving them a check every week, let’s give them a check and a career. Let’s give them real self-esteem. Let’s help them realize the happiness that comes from pursuing it, not taking it from a handout.

Republicans have been saying Obamacare won’t work ever since it was introduced. Not because we hate those who can’t afford healthcare or who can’t take care of themselves, but because we knew we would waste millions of dollars, not get a better program, and more Americans would suffer. Guess what? We were right. There is only a very small handful of people who got a better plan and saved money. The vast majority are paying more and getting less.

Republicans called it. You could have done better. Once again the Democrats have spit in the face of the American people. The people voted for real change in 2014. The Dems have doubled down on obstructionism.

In the meantime, CPAC will have young and old, white, black, Asian, Hispanic, men, women, and even more diversity. They will bring a mix of ideas about how to make this country greater by giving people more opportunity to succeed and prosper, and not by getting more government handouts! The “old white guys” will be there encouraging the younger people to engage and get involved.

Conservatives are not the party for conservatives. And Republicans are not just for Republicans. When you put the 2 together, they are Americans for a stronger America, and that means ALL Americans.

Pro Abortion, Pro Choice
Pro Abortion, Pro Choice

“Dismemberment” is such a graphic word. It brings to mind horror flicks, chainsaws, and pain… LOTS of PAIN! Yet that is exactly what happens in many abortions. Even abortionists will tell you that (see testimony from “famed” abortionist, LeRoy Carhart as evidence.) They try to dehumanize it as much as possible, calling it the removal of an “appendage” before removing the “fetus.” I’m betting if someone tried to remove one of YOUR appendages, it would be the last time you allowed that to happen to anyone else!

“The pro-abortion movement is in a predicament. They are compelled to fight a ban on dismemberment abortions because it challenges their abortion-without-limits ideology. But they know they cannot actually talk about dismemberment abortions. Putting the gruesome reality of unborn babies being torn limb from limb in front of the public would be highly detrimental to their cause.

On Friday, the Kansas Senate passed the “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act” by a 31-9 vote. As Kansans for Life Legislative Director Kathy Ostrowski wrote, only two pro-abortion lawmakers rose to speak against the bill. Neither of their arguments directly addressed what happens to the unborn child.

Pro-abortion Sen. David Haley complained about the use of the term “dismemberment.” He preferred to describe tearing apart the tiny bodies of living unborn babies as “healthcare.”

Yes, pro-abortion advocates even advocate for dismemberment, though they prefer not to call it that. To them, it’s simply “healthcare.” But isn’t it really “deathcare”? Because in reality, you’re pulling a living, human being with a heartbeat apart limb by limb so as not to inconvenience another human being.

Looks like the Dems were right… we aren’t all equal…

#NoGreyNoWay

50 Shades of Grey is all the buzz. But why? One group of ladies has drawn a line in the sand and say, #NoGreyNoWay, and the movement is picking up steam. Here’s an excerpt of what they’re saying…

“This storyline is filled with lust, sexual perversion, manipulation, codependence, violence, verbal and emotional abuse among a laundry list of other things. It is not the true depiction of love. Rather, it is the tearing down of innocence and a potion to numb the morals of society.  It is “legalized lust.” The FSOG has branded and now selling it’s sex toys in local stores which pose the question to our younger generation…..CURIOUS? “ Pastor, Debra Arnott”

Washington Constitutional Convention 1787 Painting
Washington Constitutional Convention 1787 Painting

President Obama keeps reiterating the lie that Muslims were integral in founding America. As if him saying it a thousand times will somehow make it an actual historical fact. This is how revisionist history happens folks. In a recent speech, President Obama said:

“Here in America Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”

Woven into the fabric, yes. Since it’s founding, no. Unless I missed it. Which Founding Father was Muslim? *queue the crickets*

In August 2014, WND.com wrote an article about this very topic, quoting Obama who thanked Muslims for “building the very fabric of our nation” and claiming they were in part responsible for “the core of our democracy” (more delusional history rewrites). They followed it up with a breakdown of what the Founding Fathers and early presidents actually said about Islam at various points in history.

“Far from incorporating Islam into America’s early tapestry, their own writings reveal the Founding Fathers were at war with the creed and its adherents.

In 1801, President Jefferson sent the Navy to the Barbary Coast to stop Islamic pirates’ reign of terror on U.S. merchant ships. Jefferson read the Quran to understand what was motivating the pirates, and he learned that the Muslim holy book commanded the faithful to “plunder and enslave” non-Muslims.”

San Ysidro Border Traffic, Immigration, Line of Cars, Mexico
San Ysidro Border Traffic, Immigration, Line of Cars, Mexico

If there are 2 new immigrants for every 1 new job created, what happens to unemployed Americans? I’ll tell you. They continue to be unemployed! Given that information, why would Congress even THINK about increasing immigration levels? Because, you know, they’re talking about it.

“Government data collected in December 2014 show 18 million immigrants (legal and illegal) living in the United States who arrived in January 2000 or later. But only 9.3 million jobs were added over this time period. In addition, the native-born population 16 and older grew by 25.2 million. Because job growth has not come close to matching immigration and population growth, the share of Americans in the labor force has declined dramatically — a clear indication there is no labor shortage.”

Our elected representatives are supposed to represent OUR interests. Not the interests of people who WANT to come to America and take American jobs. It’d be one thing if there were more jobs than people. But there isn’t. The shortfall of jobs is HUGE!

Increasing immigration levels to the detriment of the American worker is irresponsible and contrary to the job they’ve been elected (hired) to do.

Time to contact your representatives and make sure they are putting citizens first before introducing potential new citizens into our workforce.

MLK - Martin Luther King Jr.
MLK - Martin Luther King Jr.

As Black History Month comes to a close, let us take time to reflect on a man who is remembered for his efforts to ensure equal rights for people of all nationalities. The name of Martin Luther King Jr. is well known today, and while most citizens know something about him and what he did, there is much about which most citizens know very little today, perhaps because of the overt Christian nature of his message and work (some of which you will see below).

Born in Atlanta in 1929 into a family of preachers, both his father and grandfather were ordained ministers of the Gospel. At the age of fifteen, he entered Morehouse College, then Crozer Theological Seminary, before earning his doctorate at Boston University.

While pastoring the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, King was chosen as leader of Montgomery’s Bus boycott, a movement begun by the Rosa Parks incident in 1955. During this time, his house was firebombed, and he was arrested.

He continued to advance the non-violent Civil Rights movement, and in 1964 won the Nobel peace prize for his work, becoming (at 35 years old) the youngest recipient of this award.

The Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights was an organization he worked closely with in Birmingham. Below is their Ten Commandments Pledge that each member signed upon joining. Nine of these ten should still be followed by every citizen today!

Libertarians have a drug problem, and this addiction to drugs is holding them back from becoming an influential voice in American politics.

I am not referring to an actual addiction to a drug itself. I am referring to a libertarian’s inability to talk about issues without bringing up drugs.

Try it sometime. A conservative can have an in-depth conversation with someone who calls himself or herself a libertarian and agree with them on almost every issue. Conservatives and libertarians are cut from the same small-government cloth. But inevitably, just as you are ready to join forces with your new like-minded libertarian friend and conquer the political world, they will bring up pot.

Like a young girl falling in love with a boy who is hooked on drugs, you realize this “conservatarian” relationship you thought would be so beautiful was never meant to be. It all fell apart once you realized your new libertarian friend was hooked on the drug issue.

At first, it is easy to dismiss this destructive addiction. The relationship seems perfect in the beginning, but then you see the signs. It usually starts during an innocent-sounding political conversation. They might mention something like, “If conservatives would only stop incarcerating young Americans for petty drug offenses, then we could work together.” Or maybe they say, “I agree with you on everything, but first we need to decriminalize all drug– use.” Or, “We have to end the war on drugs.”

Here is an interview I did with Bleeding Heart Libertarian Matt Zwolinski. This college instructor joined me to discuss the possibility of conservatives and libertarians uniting in the common cause of shrinking our overreaching government. The interview was going so well – and then, POW! The drug issue came out of nowhere and sent my head spinning.

Conservatives and libertarians have a chance to save America if they can unite. A “conservatarian” coalition could put some actual liberty-loving people in positions of power.

But libertarians are not the only ones at fault in this failure to unite small-government minded voters. Conservatives are hung up on an issue, too.

Conservatives are staunchly against big government until it comes to police power. For some odd reason, there is nothing a police officer can do that will cause some conservatives to criticize them. Police officers are the sacred cows of conservatives.

Why is it that so many conservatives (who are usually against big government) support police who abuse their power? If conservatives could rationally parse the good, Constitution-loving police from the police who abuse their power, they could sing Kumbaya with more libertarians, and minorities who feel disenfranchised by police brutality and a movement that excuses it. Overly powerful law enforcement is no different than any other overreaching part of government that tramples constitutional rights, so why the pass for them from conservatives? A new coalition of libertarians, blacks and conservative voters could unite under the common cause of reigning in big government.

How many black Americans would vote for a conservative candidate if they would just say, “I am with you! I believe the police do need to act only within their constitutional limits! Abusive police are the same as an abusive IRS, TSA, CPS, etc. This is the consequence of big government run by Democrats! Vote for me!”?

There are some good cops, and some bad cops. There are suspected criminals who deserve to have been shot by police, and there are others who didn’t deserve to be killed. There are private citizens whose rights have been trampled by rogue power-tripping police officers. And there are police officers who honor the Constitution and selflessly risk their lives to save others every day. Why can’t conservatives and libertarians take each instance on a case-by-case basis and focus on reining in big government?

I believe libertarians and conservatives could put their differences on the back burner and defeat the big-government statists in power if conservatives would soften on their staunch support for police, and if libertarians would break their addiction to the drug issue. It is tough to break an addiction, but not impossible, and I believe breaking these old habits are imperative to saving our republic.

A Texas jury has found Eddie Ray Routh guilty of murder in the ‘American Sniper’ trial. Routh was found guilty of the capital murder of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield.

Kyle and Littlefield were gunned down at a gun range two years ago. “No one disputed that Routh shot and killed the men. But defense attorneys say Routh was insane. Prosecutors dismiss that claim outright.

“Ladies and gentleman, that is not insanity. That is just cold, calculated capital murder. He is guilty of capital murder. He is not in any way insane,” said attorney Jane Starnes during closing arguments.

She claimed Routh knew the difference between right and wrong.

Starnes urged jurors to “follow the law,” allowing the law to guide them “to the true and correct verdict.”

For its part, the defense pointed to Routh’s long history of mental illness. “He killed those men because he had a delusion. He believed in his mind that they were going to kill him,” said attorney J. Warren St. John.

In the end, the trial lasted nine days with the jury deliberating for only a few hours before finding Routh unanimously guilty. After the verdict was announced, the judge immediately sentenced Routh to confinement for life without the possibility of parole.

Who has a greater right to work; illegal aliens or lawful immigrants and American citizens?

Most people would answer that American citizens, then lawful immigrants, have a greater right to work in this country than illegal aliens.

But not so, according to Loretta Lynch, Obama’s nominee to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder.

When asked this very question by Sen. Jeff Sessions during her confirmation hearings last week, Ms. Lynch answered:

“I believe the right and obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here.”

Although she has been nominated to hold the top law enforcement office in the country, she seems to have little regard for the rule of law pertaining to immigration and border security.

Nominating a candidate who has little regard for immigration law will enable President Obama to continue his shadowy visa-issuing scheme; a huge parallel immigrant work authorization system working outside the bounds of the law and limits written by Congress.

According to a report issued by Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center For Immigration Studies, statistics from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services indicate that approximately 5.5 million new work permits were issued to aliens from 2009-2014.

Many of these aliens, who arrived from Central America in the border surge of 2012-2014, are in deportation proceedings or have been arrested by ICE but released on an order of supervision, suspension of deportation, or even whose countries will not take them back.

This report states that approximately 1.8 million new work permits were issued to aliens with temporary visas or those who entered under the Visa Waiver Program. Of these, about 1.2 million had a visa status for which employment is not allowed by law.

Of these 1.2 million new work permits, “more than 470,000 were issued to aliens on tourist visas and 532,000 were issued to foreign students.

“More than 156,000 were issued to dependents of students and guest workers,” none of whom qualify to work legally in the United States.

Even more shocking: 957,000 new work permits were issued to aliens who crossed the border illegally, and 1,200 were “issued to aliens who were either denied asylum, suspected of using fraudulent documents, were stowaways, or were refused at port of entry.”

Of the millions of illegal aliens from Central America, many are MS-13 gang members and drug dealers. Do they have a right to obtain a work permit?

Chances are most of them already have one. According to the CIS report, 1.7 million work permits were issued to aliens whose status was unknown.

“This should be a concern; work permits are gateway documents to driver’s licenses and other benefits,” writes Vaughan.

“And if the government agency issuing them does not know or will not disclose how the bearer arrived in the country, how can others rely on the authenticity of an individual’s identity?”

These illegal actions by the Obama administration coincide directly with its steady dismantling of our nation’s immigration enforcement.

Jessica Vaughan testified to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee regarding not only the 5.5 million issued work permits, but also that more than 1,000 crimes had been committed by criminal aliens released by the Obama administration in 2013.

In her opening statement she said, “The Obama administration’s deliberate dismantling of enforcement has imposed enormous costs on American communities in the form of lost job opportunities and stagnant wages for native workers, higher tax bills to cover increasing outlays or social services and benefits, compromised national security, and needless public safety threats.”

She reported to the committee that “Statistics published by the Department of Homeland Security show clearly that over the last several years … the number of deportations has plummeted and the number of illegal aliens allowed to stay and work in the United States has increased.

“The drop in enforcement activity has become particularly acute since the president’s executive action went into effect in late November 2014.”

In fact, ICE released 36,000 convicted criminals in 2013. Of those released, 193 had homicide convictions, 426 had sexual assault convictions, and 303 had kidnapping convictions.

In 2014, ICE released another 30,000 convicted criminals, according to Vaughan’s report.

In addition, ICE deportations have declined by 58 percent since 2009, and overall criminal deportations have declined by 43 percent since 2012.

If Loretta Lynch is confirmed as attorney general, we can expect the lawlessness to continue to go unchallenged. It’s just par for the course.

Meet twelve-year-old CJ Pearson.

Inspired by America’s Mayor, Rudy Giuliani’s recent criticism of President Obama, CJ took to YouTube to ask if President Obama really loves America.

President Obama, are you listening? WATCH as this amazingly bright, articulate twelve-year-old schools us all on what it really means to love America:

He’s pretty terrific and makes more sense than most adults I know!

What do you think of what CJ Pearson had to say?

Remember when your parents told you to believe half of what you see and almost none of what you hear?

I think of that every time I see a Tweet or Facebook post from people I know never check out their information. These erroneous “posts” get traction mostly because they are received by friends and family who think you would never send them something that wasn’t true. Many have been bitten, including me, because we don’t take time to check it out. Yet it seems when it comes to political issues, especially, we never, ever, ever want to challenge loved ones. Well, it’s time to start!

This week a Tweet floated by asking the question, “What is it with white men in society? Why are so many killing American Muslims, women, blacks and children?” This from a person who has worked in the media and claims that they only speak the truth, but people like me on the Right are wacked!

Low IQ voters and those with the victim mentality eat posts like this up. But it’s all wrong. I didn’t go to any Right-wing sites or Left-wing sites. I went to those highly partisan sites known as the FBI (for crime stats) and the DOJ (for crime reports).

Let’s look at a few:

2012 DOJ – The percentages of black adults and white adults arrested for murder were similar, with 49.3 percent being black and 48.3 percent being white.

2012 Black juveniles accounted for 51.5 percent of all juveniles arrested for violent crimes. White juveniles accounted for 61.6 percent of all juveniles arrested for property crimes.

Doesn’t look like a wide margin to me!

AS I looked for the numbers I found a little known fact. The DOJ combines Hispanic and white in many statistics. Why? They really can’t get percentages on Hispanics because they can’t get an actual count on them.

According to a 2009 report by the Pew Hispanic Center, in 2007 Latinos “accounted for 40% of all sentenced federal offenders.” This was an increase from 24% in 1991. 72% of the Latino offenders were not U.S. citizens. For Hispanic offenders sentenced in federal courts, 48% were immigration offenses and 37% drug offenses.

According to the US Department of Justice, blacks accounted for 52.5% of homicide offenders from 1980 to 2008, with whites at 45.3% and “Other” at 2.2%. The offending rate for blacks was almost 8 times higher than whites (per 100,000), and the victim rate 6 times higher (per 100,000). Most murders were not interracial, with 84% of white homicide victims murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims murdered by blacks. I couldn’t find anything saying that most crimes committed by whites were against the various parties stated in the false tweet.

According to the Human rights commission, World Health Organization and the Human Rights Watch over 5000 honor killings are committed every year and many of them by the fathers, brothers, and uncles of Muslim women. That means Muslim men are killing Muslim women. Here it is America, you can’t find any stats on white men killing Muslims, oh, except the 3 that were killed by a nut a week or so ago. There were 93 honor killings in America, by family members over the past few years. None of them were those pasty white guys looking to kill Muslim women!

On black crime, the FBI stats don’t play out to the Left’s lies. FBI Stats indicate that blacks are more likely to commit hate crimes than any other race. According to downtrend.com we are told that’s because blacks are incarcerated at a disproportionate rate compared to their population that the criminal justice system is racist.

We are also told that because blacks are suspended from school at a disproportionate rate compared to their population that the education system is racist. Well, what are we to make of this? The facts show that blacks commit hate crimes at a disproportionate rate to their population.

The FBI just released the latest hate crime statistics and it doesn’t look good for the black community, which is portrayed as America’s biggest victim. In 2013, 24.3% of all hate crime offenders were black. According to the last census, blacks make up 12.6% of the population. That means that blacks commit hate crimes at nearly double the rate of their population percentage.

Now let’s compare that to whites. The FBI reports that 52.4% of hate crime offenders were white. Keep in mind that the FBI considers Hispanics as whites so the percentage of actual white hate crime offenders is likely much lower. In any case, non-Hispanic whites make up 63.7% of the US population. Throw in the Hispanics and it’s 72.4%. Either way, whites commit hates crimes at a rate lower than their population percentage.

The point of all this is not to attack any particular group. It is to simply point out that I’m tired of lazy hateful people who simply Tweet and post “supposed facts labelled as truth” and then hide in cyberspace. Do your own homework. Let’s act on true information, then we can fix the problems in society today.

Pay Attention America!

Atheist, Ticket To Hell, Go to Hell
Atheist, Ticket To Hell, Go to Hell

I don’t think self-professed atheist Stephen Fry has thought this all the way thru…

If he’s standing at the Pearlie Gates standing face-to-face with God, he says he wouldn’t want to get in on God’s terms, so he wouldn’t go in. Considering that he’s standing face-to-face with the guy he said didn’t exist… doesn’t he think that “place of eternal torment” that he also didn’t believe it, probably also DOES exist?

And he’s so prideful he’d rather burn for eternity than admit he was wrong and maybe didn’t have all the answers?

You can read the article and watch the interview here. Be sure to watch all the way to the end where he calls God a monster who doesn’t deserve respect.

The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to protest at the Oscars this Sunday. Before hitting the red carpet to protest the “liberal media” at the Oscars, the militantly anti-homosexual group will protest at five Santa Clarita Valley churches in northern Los Angeles County.

“We’re going to expose those false preachers for lying to their congregations,” Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said from Kansas this week.

The group, which is not affiliated with any Baptist organization, believes churches like those to be targeted on Sunday are guilty of violating Old Testament tenements. According to their verbosely grandiose website, Westboro is “an Old School (or, Primitive) Baptist Church. We adhere to the teachings of the Bible, preach against all form of sin (e.g., fornication, adultery [including divorce and remarriage], sodomy).”

Local church leaders and law enforcement have been notified of the group’s intentions. Certainly the Oscars will be prepared for them as well. In the past, Westboro has been known to be no-shows at their own protests, so stayed tuned.

The US is going to be allowing the sales of armed drones to allied countries.

So far the UK is the only country allowed to purchase armed unmanned aircrafts. Other countries have unarmed drone air craft but not armed drones.

The countries will have to sign an agreement that they will only use the drones for military campaigns and the US will review how the country is complying.

This could change the way the world handles terrorist and stop them in their tracks.

Armed drones have been crucial to the US counter-terrorism strategy in the US, including killing targets from al-Qaeda and other militant groups. However they have be criticized for killing civilians as well.

What do you think? Should we give our allied countries armed unmanned drones?

Flintlock Pistol Gun Declaration Of Independence
Flintlock Pistol Gun Declaration Of Independence

The 2nd Amendment is dead in New Jersey. When you can’t even have a 300 year old flintlock pistol in your possession, you know it’s dead. The antique gun hasn’t been fired since George Washington was alive. No one even knows if it works. It certainly didn’t have any usable ammo nearby. But it could still get this New Jersey man 10 years in prison (which for him is a life sentence given the fact that he’s 72!)

Gordon Van Gilder, who taught in the New Jersey school system for 34 years, is a collector of 18th century memorabilia.  He acquired a genuine antique flintlock pistol from that era, and had it unloaded and wrapped in a cloth in his glove compartment when he was pulled over for an alleged minor traffic violation.

Van Gilder consented to a requested search of his vehicle, and when asked by the officer if there was anything in the car the officer should be worried about, Van Gilder informed him about the flintlock in the glove box.  Although not arrested that day, the next morning several patrol cars woke him at his home and placed him under arrest.

New Jersey’s draconian gun laws explicitly include antique firearms such as this 300-year-old pistol.  Indeed, possession of a slingshot is a felony under New Jersey law.

No word as to how or where he acquired the pistol. But I guess when it comes down to the letter of the law, he broke it and there are consequences. And then… there’s the spirit of the law. Did this man’s case break the “spirit of the law”? You decide.

Let me know what you think. Here’s the full story.

In perhaps one of the strangest cases of wrongful death ever, a Utah woman has been granted the right to sue herself for the death of her own husband.

On Dec. 27, 2011, Barbara Bagley lost control of her Range Rover when she hit a large sagebrush in the desert 17 miles east of Battle Mountain, Nevada. The impact with the sagebrush caused the Range Rover to flip over. Her husband, Bradley Vom Baur, was thrown from the vehicle and suffered severe injuries. The 55-year-old was taken to Battle Mountain General Hospital, where he later died. The couple’s Shetland sheepdog was in the vehicle at the time of the crash; the dog ran away and survived for 53 days in the desert before being found.

Court documents show Barbara Bagley claims she was negligent for failing to maintain proper control of her vehicle and for not keeping a proper lookout as she was driving. So why is she suing herself?

It’s a case of her husband’s estate (to which Barbara Bagley is the sole heir) versus creditors and the insurance company. In order for the wife to get any of the estate, she must sue herself–and win–so that the creditors can be paid and only then will she be able to have any money from her husband’s estate.

So convoluted are the laws and sides in this case, even the lawyers are confused. The case was originally dismissed by Third District Judge Paul Maughan in 2014, however the Utah Appeals Court reinstated the suit last week in a 3-0 ruling that says state law does not ban Bagley from suing herself for damages.

“If this suit is allowed to continue, a jury would be asked to determine whether Barbara Bagley’s fault caused Barbara Bagley’s own harm,” attorney Peter Christensen. Attorney Kathryn Tunacik Smith said in a motion to dismiss the suit, “The jury would be asked to determine how much money will fairly compensate Barbara Bagley for the harm she caused herself. The jury will be highly confused — it cannot order a person to compensate herself.”

For now, the case goes forward, but attorneys for the insurance company are deciding whether to appeal the ruling to the Utah Supreme Court. Stay tuned.

President Barack Hussein Obama
President Barack Hussein Obama

Seriously, when history takes a step back and reviews the time of President Barack Hussein Obama with an unbiased eye – they will say, “Damn Americans were really stupid back then!”

Will historians lament; “How did it happen? It couldn’t be because he was black? Please tell me that Americans were smart enough to look at man/character instead of his skin color. Tell me that they didn’t vote this guy in because of this “white guilt” stuff I hear…”

How can Americans vote a leader in to the highest, most honorable of positions based on skin color. Why didn’t they learn his history? Why didn’t they.. well, there’s been more than one leader voted in lawfully whose past should have had some giant red flags.

Yes, way back in the year 2008, the education system in America was corrupt. They rewrote history with political agendas forced on the children from age four and carried all the way through to finish in college. BUT that is still not a good enough reason to vote:

Yes, the media was ridiculous. The news you received was slanted with whatever talking head was reporting it. News was made up for hits and ratings. They had an opinion and fed it to you. BUT that was still not a good enough reason to vote: Obama

Yes, money was spent by big corporations through lobbyists in a revolving door with politicians going out one way and bribery going in the other. Tons of money from Wall Street to the Unions, with K Street buying politicians to make sure laws were made that favored them. The Unions raped their membership for dues in the pretense of working for them when in reality leadership made damn good money and lived the high life while the workers did the work. BUT that was still not a good enough reason to vote: Obama

Yes Al Sharpton/Obama/Eric Holder worked hard to create more race warfare. They worked hard on telling black people that they are second class citizens. That they should get more help (control) from the government. That all white people are bad. BUT that was still not a good enough reason to vote: Obama

Republicans were the most profligate spenders in the history of this nation between the years of 2000 – 2005 when they controlled all three branches of government. They grew deficits, debt, regulations and entertained the corrupt lobbyists like no one’s business – BUT that was still not a good enough reason to vote: Obama

We were in a genuine crisis with bankers having raped the country and getting bailed out for their trouble. The housing and mortgage industry were being ruined and gutted. The stock market was crashing – BUT that is still not a good enough reason to vote: Obama

Even though this one was half-white, we had never had a black President in this country and putting that dark part of history behind us, even a little was a prideful thought for Americans who are on the whole, just and benevolent people.

BUT that is still not a good enough reason to vote: Obama

… Because now – everything above is worse by ten-fold. Barack Obama and his presidency are like food poisoning: We just have to wait until it crawls through our system in a painful, bloated and sickening fashion that it does.

Maybe the folks who say Barack Obama is the best thing that ever happened to us are right? That he represents the wake up call America needed to actually realize the 50-year bleed that liberals have been taking the country down? Perhaps it does have to get worse before it gets better?

If 2010 and 2014 were any indications, we still have some sense in us and some urgency, hopefully. But let’s not forget what those Republicans did when they were in charge, okay? They set the table for Pelosi, Reid and eventually – two terms of Obama, executive orders, amnesty, ObamaCare and 5 trillion more dollars of debt and counting.

This is bad. BUT that is still not a good enough reason not to strap on your bayonette and get in the parade, as Freddie Rumson would say.  When history judges Barack Hussein Obama – we’ll be on the right side.

Who’s with me?
