California Dems suing Conservative College students – UNREAL!

California Democratic Party Sues Conservative College Students In Unprecedented Move

Three members of the Cal State Fullerton College Republicans have been named in a lawsuit backed by the California Democratic Party in retaliation for their work to recall State Senator Josh Newman, who was the pivotal vote in support of April’s $52 billion gas tax increase.

The Democrats’ lawsuit, which was filed in Sacramento Superior Court last Thursday, alleges that the College Republicans and other conservative activists “misled” voters in their successful signature gathering effort to recall Senator Newman. The suit names Amanda McGuire, Brooke Paz, and Ryan Hoskins (pictured below) as defendants in the suit, for volunteering their weekends to talk to constituents about the cost of Newman’s vote to the district’s taxpayers.

The recall effort gathered nearly 85,000 signatures in a matter of several weeks, due to constituents’ frustration and anger at Newman’s vote on the gas tax. The Democrat Party has alleged that recall organizers, which also included dozens of local conservatives of all ages, lied to voters about the true nature of the recall campaign by claiming that the recall would repeal the gas tax.

Brooke Paz, who serves as Public Relations Director for the College Republicans told Daily Wire, “This lawsuit is a baseless attack on the character of hardworking and passionate activists, as well as a shameful intrusion on the democratic processes that are my right as an American citizen.”

“As we just celebrated the 241st anniversary of our independence, my God-given rights are being threatened by the California Democrats simply because they disagree with me and my colleagues,” Paz continued. “Our elected representatives are supposed to govern by the people and for the people. The people do not want higher taxes, and as proven by the incredible amount of signatures we’ve gathered for this recall petition, the people do not want Newman.”

Once Democrats in the state legislature realized that the recall petition was moving forward at a record pace, they scrambled to develop a number of subversive methods that would stop the lawful recall by the voters. Democrats, who hold a two-thirds supermajority in both the Assembly and Senate, and hold all eight statewide elected offices, worked to change the rules on signature verification, tried to alter contribution limits, and fought for legislation that would push the election further back.

Chief Clinton Strategist: Democrats Should Abandon the Left!

In an op-ed in the New York Times Thursday, Mark Penn and Andrew Stein argue that the “path back to power for the Democratic Party today, as it was in the 1990s, is unquestionably to move to the center and reject the siren calls of the left, whose policies and ideas have weakened the party.” Penn is the former chief strategist of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and was a prominent advisor to President Bill Clinton. Stein is a former New York City Council president.

Their Democratic party credentials are not in question, and yet they all but call for an explicit repudiation of “Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren and a host of well-funded groups [that] have embraced sharply leftist ideas” while acknowledging the “need to … adopt an agenda of renewed growth, greater protection for American workers and a return to fiscal responsibility.

Further, the op-ed makes a specific point of arguing that Democrats have lost voters due to an embrace of political correctness and large-scale efforts by the party to demean and diminish the role of religion in public life. Specifically, they argue Democrats need to support free speech on campus, and that their strong positions on issues like sanctuary cities and transgender bathrooms have cost them electorally. At times the op-ed reads as if they are encouraging Democrats to poach significant elements of Donald Trump’s platform, urging Democrats in Congress to cooperate on infrastructure issues, bolster manufacturing, and get behind tough-on-crime measures.

Penn and Stein aren’t the first Democrats to say the party needs to tack back to the center since Trump’s victory. However, few have said these things in such a direct and bracing manner, and in such a high-profile outlet as the Times. So far, the party has had trouble heeding the advice to moderate their hard-left policy positions. Recent attempts to expand thwe tent have been met with “the resistance”—when prominent national Democrats endorsed a pro-life candidate for mayor in Omaha, it caused a national kerfuffle with Democratic party chairman Tom Perez sending mixed messages about whether the party would support pro-life candidates.

Increasingly, the Democratic party isn’t even trying to hide the fact they are having trouble communicating to voters exactly what the party stands for.

Dallas Co. Commissioner Votes Against Honoring Murdered Officers, Says They Brought It On Themselves

Commissioner John Wiley Price Votes Against Honoring Assassinated Police Officers

Dallas, TX – Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted to oppose a resolution to honor murdered police officers, blaming police officers for the assassinations.

The Wednesday vote was supposed to be largely ceremonial, but gained unexpected opposition as Commissioner John Wiley Price argued that law enforcement should not be honored, according to Fox4.

“I think it’s interesting in this country how you again try to frame the narrative with regards to other people who’ve lost their life at the hands of law enforcement,” Price said. “No life is more important than any other life.”

Commissioner John Wiley Price Votes Against Honoring Assassinated Police Officers

Dallas, TX – Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price voted to oppose a resolution to honor murdered police officers, blaming police officers for the assassinations.

The Wednesday vote was supposed to be largely ceremonial, but gained unexpected opposition as Commissioner John Wiley Price argued that law enforcement should not be honored, according to Fox4.

“I think it’s interesting in this country how you again try to frame the narrative with regards to other people who’ve lost their life at the hands of law enforcement,” Price said. “No life is more important than any other life.”

Price said that ‘unjust police violence’ was the cause of the terrorist attacks against law enforcement, according to Fox4.

Sheriff Lupe Valdez argued that all officers killed in the line of duty deserve to be honored.

“It’s not that they died, because everybody dies. It’s how they died,” she said. “We need to continue as people in blue to make a difference so that both sides, both of us hurt when somebody dies — it’s not officers go home safely, it’s let’s all go home safely.”

Since being the only commissioner to vote against the resolution, John Wiley Price has refused to back down from his statements.

“Until we start to recognize all life, then no life is more important than any other life,” Price said.

Others have been voicing their disagreement with Price.

“It was to honor these fallen so I think he does owe the law enforcement community an apology. There’s a time and a place for everything,” Dallas Police Association President Mike Mata told Fox4. “Any other day of the week, I would agree with him. But on a day where we lost five officers who were murdered on the streets in the city of Dallas from hateful rhetoric — whether it’s from the police side of the community or the community to the police — is not the day that you do it.”

In April, prosecutors unsuccessfully prosecuted John Wiley Price, accusing him of using his public office to illegally take over $1 million. The jury deadlocked in the decision on four of the charges. Afterwards, prosecutors dropped the case.

White Nationalism is not White Supremacy!

0

As the melting of snowflakes continue in Liberal America, I see unfair accusations from Liberals calling many good, decent Conservatives who support our President, Donald Trump, a white nationalist… like it is a bad thing. I am dumbfounded that the ignorance of Liberals is hitting an all-time high and that they can’t tell the difference between a white nationalist and a white supremacist. As a Jew who has experienced with both types of people, I will explain the difference, hopefully in a way that Liberals will be able to understand.

White nationalism is a good quality to have. I truly believe God made you the way you are for a reason, and you have the right to feel proud of who you are. Every race, religion, and culture has their accomplishments and short falls. It’s just part of human nature. White nationalism is, simply put, being proud to be white and American.

White Americans have accomplished so much with a country as young as the United States. White nationalist Americans actually care about the safety of their countrymen whether one is a Liberal or Conservative. Nationalists put their country first, which is the most honorable thing a citizen can do. So what is the crime in being a white nationalist?

I can even add that white nationalism is similar to Zionism, another concept that confuses many people.  Zionism is not “Jewish supremacy.” It is the realization of the Jewish people, returning to the homeland of Israel and establishing the Jewish country as it was meant to be.

White supremacists, on the other hand, feel they are superior to other races. They hate anyone who is not white, especially blacks, Jewish people, and Hispanics. They use violence to get their agenda across. They do not put their country first nor do they have values and principles. My own experience with them… they think that Jewish people will one day rule the entire world and are part of a globalist scheme to take down the white race.

White nationalists are concerned about elected officials with dual citizenship. I agree that it should be a concern because of a potential conflict of interest. Where do the loyalties lie? And folks, it is not anti-Semitic just because they include Israeli-Americans in this. Heck, I wouldn’t want someone with dual citizenship in the Knesset or as Prime Minister! If Liberals continue to play the anti-Semitic card when it isn’t valid, when anti-Semitism actually does happen, people will ignore it.

The bottom line is… Elected officials should only have one national allegiance and it should be to the country in which they hold a leadership position. This is not racist. It’s just common sense.

Atheist says Christianity best defence against violence! WHAT!

0

British academic Richard Dawkins has been a scientist in the public eye for many decades, but it wasn’t until the publication of his 2006 book “The God Delusion” that the man became a household name. Given his harsh criticism of religion (famously referring to the God of Christianity and Judaism as “arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction”), you wouldn’t expect him to offer any praise of Christianity, but as Islam continues to spread globally at a record pace, Dawkins is reconsidering a role for Christianity.

Most people seem to erroneously think that all religions are more or less the same, simply because they’re all in the category of “religion.” of course, nobody would assume that all books, or all movies are the same simply because they’re in the same category of “book” or “movie.” Even if we’re to concede to the liberal argument that all religions have their crazies, no where is violent radicalization as prevalent in Islam.

Christian anti-abortion extremists have only killed eleven people in the history of legal abortion. That’s what ISIS calls a “bad day.”

Despite spending years criticizing Christianity, well-known atheist Richard Dawkins is now admitting that Christianity is much better than Islam.

Dawkins even conceded that “Christianity may actually be our best defense against aberrant forms of religion that threaten the world,” according to The Gospel Herald.

Dawkins noted that Christianity, unlike Islam, does not make use of violent methods to fulfill its teachings. “There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death,” he said.

He admitted that he has “mixed feelings” concerning the decline of Christianity, because this faith-based group might just be “a bulwark against something worse.”

The atheist reasoned that he constantly attacked Christianity in the past simply because it is the religion he is most familiar with, having attended Christian schools while growing up. Even though he was born in Africa, Dawkins and his family moved to England when he was nine years old.

Even Dawkins realizes that people have a natural inkling toward belief in something (how else are we to explain the fact that the overwhelming majority of people throughout history – and alive today – believe in some higher power, even if they’re irreligious?).

CNN calls out REAL news as FAKE while lying!

Not surprised? neither are we. As I said the other day they are so focused on Trump that cant see the fire that has and will consume them.

CNN’s Jim Acosta Blasts Trump For Holding ‘Fake News Conference’ Overseas
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta suggested President Donald Trump held a “fake news conference” in Poland on Thursday because he took a question from a reporter who is “essentially an ally of the White House,” but failed to note that he took questions from less sympathetic sources as well.

During the joint news conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Trump took a question from U.K. Daily Mail reporter David Martosko, who has publicly admitted he spoke with Trump about a possible position in the administration.

Martosko asked the president about his tweet Sunday of a GIF showing Trump tackling a man with the CNN logo superimposed on his head.
Trump made the case that CNN’s overtly negative coverage of his administration is causing the news network problems.

“I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them, as you know now they have some pretty serious problems,” Trump said, likely in a reference to CNN’s decision to mask the identity of a private citizen responsible for making the GIF Trump tweeted on the condition the man no longer engage in what CNN considers to be “ugly behavior.”

“They have been fake news for a long time. They have been covering me in a very dishonest way,” Trump said.

“I will say that CNN has really taken it too seriously and I think they’ve hurt themselves very badly,” Trump said. “What we want to see is honest, beautiful, free — but honest — fair press.”

The president also criticized NBC for being “equally as bad” despite the success he brought to the network with his former reality show, The Apprentice.

CNN’s Jim Acosta took issue with Trump taking a question from a “friendly reporter” and attacking his network as “fake news.”

Sharing Valedictorian honors leads to a lawsuit. deemed racism!

Black Valedictorian Has to Share With White Girl, So She Makes Sick Move

Two wrongs don’t make a right. That idiom may be a cliche, but it perfectly applies to many situations of so-called “reverse racism.”

It could also apply to a small town in Mississippi, where a young black woman has earned valedictorian honors.

Instead of celebrating the accomplishment, however, the high school graduate made a sick move against the school district: She’s suing the school because she had to share the graduation stage with a white girl, who also earned a co-valedictorian title.

According to The Washington Post, Jasmine Shepard graduated from Cleveland High School in Mississippi last spring. Both she and a white student were given co-valedictorian honors, but Shepard and her family are still bitter about the shared title even a year later.

“Prior to 2016, all of Cleveland High School’s valedictorians were white,” the recently filed lawsuit states. “As a result of the school official’s unprecedented action of making an African-American student share the valedictorian award with a white student, the defendants discriminated against.”

The school district has a pretty good explanation for the shared title: Both students had identical grade point averages.

“As such, under school board policy, they were both named valedictorian of their graduating class,” Jamie Jacks, an attorney for the school district, explained. “The district’s policy is racially neutral and fair to students.”

Co-valedictorian honors for students with identical grades are fairly common in large schools. However, Sherry Shepherd, the mother of Jasmine, apparently believes that disagreeing with the school’s official GPA records makes them irrelevant.

“These children have been attending school with each other since middle school,” she said. “We know the schedule, we know what they take, and we have a good idea where the discrepancy lies.”

Shepherd and the lawsuit are demanding a cash payout for “monetary damages” from the school district. More shocking, however, is the lawsuit’s demand that the white student be stripped of her honors, so that Jasmine Shepard can be declared “sole valedictorian.”

The sad reality is that the student and her family would likely not be suing the school district if the co-valedictorian happened to also be black.

If the GPA numbers are in fact the same — a fact that is presumably easy to confirm — then it seems that the lawsuit is designed to punish a high-achieving student for daring to be white.

The fact that the lawsuit was recently filed an entire year after the graduation took place adds additional pettiness to the case.

A year after being named valedictorian, a student should be focused on their future, such as attending college or pursuing a career.

Instead of celebrating accomplishments, however, the lawsuit filers seem to be bitter about skin color. Stripping a well-earned valedictorian title from a white student is no better than doing so based on dark skin.

The simple fact is that treating a white person differently because of her race is just as bad as if the reverse were true.

It’s a call for special treatment based not on performance, but on race… and demanding the spotlight despite equal accomplishments is the opposite of equality.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you believe that accomplishments and character should be more important than skin color — whether black or white.

Shock Map of Insurance Rate Hikes Released… Devastates Dems

By now it is no secret that Obamacare was a massive failure. However, after the release of a U.S. map that illustrates how much health care insurance rates have spiked, we can see just how bad The Affordable Care Act was for Americans.

A map released by The U.S. Department Of Health And Human Services shows the detrimental effect of the Affordable Care Act insurance mandates on individual premium payers.

The map and ASPE’s detailed report, released May 23, 2017, compared insurance premium rates from 2013 with those of 2017. The results are hard to swallow.

Out of the 39 states that participate in health insurance enrollment through Healthcare.gov, the insurance premiums have raised enormously across the board.

In Alaska during 2013, individuals were paying a monthly insurance premium average of about $344. In 2017, that average jumped up to $1,044. Arizona went from a $211 monthly average in 2013 to $611 in 2017.

North Carolina went from $240 to $662 in monthly premiums and West Virginia jumped up from $261 monthly in 2013 to $702 in 2017.

Arizona had a 190 percent increase, Alaska shot up by 203 percent and while some states like Alabama were hit the hardest with a shocking increase of 223 percent, nationally the 39 states that participate saw an overall increase of 105 percent.

“Comparing the average premiums found in 2013 MLR data and 2017 CMS MIDAS data shows average exchange premiums were 105% higher in the 39 states using Healthcare.gov in 2017 than average individual market premiums in 2013,” the official report found.

“The Trump administration late Friday blasted Obamacare as a failure after releasing final enrollment numbers for the federal health insurance exchange that were lower than the sign-up tally for 2016’s open enrollment season. A total of 9.2 million Americans signed up for plans sold on HealthCare.gov, which serves 39 states, by the close of open enrollment on Tuesday, officials said,” CNBC reported earlier this year.

In short, unaffordable insurance is being forced down American’s throats, thanks to Obamacare. This is why repealing the ACA is so important.

Democrat leaders are going to be devastated when this gets out — make sure it does by sharing this story on Facebook and Twitter!

Child sex dolls the size of girls aged THREE available to buy in the UK … and they’re completely legal

WARNING: Disturbing content. The world of sex dolls online includes tiny childlike figures which boast of being ‘pretty’ with ‘realistic skin’ – Sex dolls that look like 3 year olds

Sex dolls are being sold online which look just like girls aged three years old – and they’re shipping to customers in the UK.

The dark world of child sex dolls has been revealed, with one website boasting hundreds of models from different suppliers.

AliExpress features the dolls – which are legally sound for buyers who desire them here in the UK – many of which specify their height as being around 100-140cm tall – the average height range of three to nine-year-old girls.

Child sex dolls are a popular online purchase for residents across the world, with videos like the one above intended to showcase similar merchandise for buyers.

Painting the dolls as people with personalities for buyers to groom , they use lines to promote them like “The innocent girl is waiting for your welcome.”

Online, the dolls, priced around £390 to £650, are searchable online under phrases like ‘Loli dolls’ for Lolita, ‘mini pretty girls’ and ‘real human dolls’, reports the Daily Star.

And the photographs, many too shocking to show here, feature some of the sex aids in sexual positions, including bending over in front of a mirror.

The transaction history of the dolls reveals that UK buyers have purchased them online in the past few months, with one buyer snapping a doll up at around 10pm on April 19, and another sending for one at 10am on May 7.

Another doll was purchased on June 20 by a UK browser at 11 in the morning.

With ‘cyberskin’ – a silicone material that’s intended to be as likelike as possible – stretched over metal skeletons, there are lists of what the doll is suited to – including different types of sexual activity and “emotional companionship”.

Some allow customers to select eye and hair colour and style, as well as nail varnish selections.

One seller wrote, as quoted by the Daily Star: “What you see is what you get. Sell with doll video.

“Leave your email address for naked pictures and doll video.”

This full virtual reality SEX SUIT is as shocking as it sounds:

The feedback ratings reveal satisfied customers, with one Japan resident writing: “It’s exactly like a real size little girl… The face style is very natural and cute.”

A British buyer told how they were “happy with the high quality doll” and how it “comes with everything you see in the picture”.

One article stated the Lifelike child sex dolls were created to ‘stop paedophiles committing crimes’

MORGAN FREEMAN CALLS OUT DON LEMON FOR RACE BAITING

In the interview Lemon tries to pull morgan into the “Oh WHOA is Me” clube
He tried to tell morgan that blacks cant get out of their situation no matter how they try.
Morgan would have none of it. He wasn’t grabbing the bait.

Morgan Freeman, we all know and love him as one of the few celebrities in Hollywood who calls it like it is. Him and a few others of color (including myself) see past the culture of race bait and victim-hood.

Freeman was in an interview with Lemon on CNN, where Lemon tried to convince Freeman that it’s okay to play the victim card. He states it might be to hard for some people to “pull themselves up from the bootstraps.”

Freeman put him in his place very quickly when he had a few choice words for the disgraced CNN host.

I for one applaud Morgan Freeman for seeing past color and calling out race baiting Don Lemon for what he is.

People in the African-American community need to wake up and realize that it doesn’t matter what color we are in this day in age. Playing the victim card won’t solve any problems but only cause more division within our country.

Sometimes i wonder if Democrats will ever start to understand this, but then the more I think about it I realize that as long as they stay tuned in to networks like CNN and other mainstream media outlets. They won’t get the truth, but be brainwashed into the liberal state of thinking.

The idea that all minorities are living in an oppressed system of government ruled by “Evil Whites”. *Shaking my head.*

His best line of the interview is when Morgan explains to Lemon that busses are leaving the ghetto every day! You just need to get on one and go!

Dear White Privilege Deniers!

0

Dear White People,

With the current events happening in our country, there are thousands of articles, videos and Facebook posts that explain the Black Lives Matter Movement, white privilege and racism. There are people who think (wrongfully) that BLM is a movement against white people and police. In response to the recent outing of police brutality via the internet and the injustice that prevails in the black community when one of its members is killed, it’s no surprise that the term “White Privilege” ignites defensiveness. Everytime another police brutality case surfaces, there are those who inevitably rush to defend their actions via social media. Most recently,  Steven Hildreth, Jr. who shortly after the death of Alton Sterling, tweeted his positive experience when pulled over by police, attributing it to him being cooperative. I noticed that all my white friends were quick to repost and share as if this negated, justified or flipped the blame for police. While no one in the black community believes that all cops are bad apples, posting such articles in the wake of yet another black person’s untimely death by law enforcement, is even more misguided than saying “all lives matter” in response to BLM. So in light of that, I’d like to explain some things about white privilege and what it really means.

1. Just because you had hardships in your life, doesn’t mean you aren’t  privileged. Nobody is denying or discrediting the hard work and obstacles you might’ve faced. Nevertheless, If you are white, you are the beneficiary of white privilege. That’s right. Just because you don’t notice it or see it or feel it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. What does this mean? Well, say that you’re a white person who committed various crimes. Maybe you were in and out of rehab and had your children in foster care.  Here is a list of things that will not happen to you:

  • You will not be questioned for carrying a weapon so long as you don’t point it at anyone.
  • People will not think twice before sitting next to you in the subway.
  • You will not be followed by security at a bank.
  • People will not assume and therefore treat your children as if they are also going to become criminals.
  • You will not be treated like a charity case at a restaurant.
  • You will not be targeted for driving a luxury car.
  • People will not assume you are uneducated.
  • You will not fear for your life when being pulled over for an infraction.

Favorite Founders Speak !

0

“The American civilization is unique in history. Never before, and not since, has a nation been born of such fresh ground and cultivated so deliberately by ideals.” The constant gardeners of freedom were our Founders. Here is my list of my favorite Founders.

5. Samuel Adams. “No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued.” Every cause needs an early voice and Sam Adams was that voice. “By 1768 Samuel Adams and James Otis were calling for a more unified resistance of the colonies against “taxation without representation.” “Samuel Adams, who at least one historian said “controlled” Boston with his “trained mob.” Another said Adams had “few equals as an agitator,” “with a reputation as a violence-soaked incendiary,” whose pen “stung like a horned snake.” Adams’ “seductive whispers” were said to leave “unsuspecting listeners ‘closely attached to the hindermost past of Mr. Adams as the rattles are affixed to the tail of a rattlesnake.’” It was Adams who sensationalized the early conflict in his writings and ensured the flame of revolution would not die out; and yet, paradoxically by today’s standards, eventually Adams would be called “the great forerunner of the race of American politicians” by Henry Cabot Lodge.” The Divided Era p. 42

4. John Hancock – the first and most prominent signer of the Declaration of Independence and perhaps our most underrated Founder. It was Hancock who funded our early Revolutionary efforts. He was the richest man in the Colonies by most accounts and he risked it all – abandoning most of his property and family in Boston to be President of the Continental Congress. His stature furthered the Revolutionary efforts in no small measure. His name was alone on the Declaration for a month – committing the ultimate act of treason and bravery.

3. Patrick Henry. “Give me Liberty or Give Me Death.” Henry gave focus to our Revolutionary Thoughts when he said those words in response to the Stamp Act – the first direct tax on Americans. “Henry took History’s center stage and chose to raise the stakes even further. Not only did he denounce the Stamp Act, he introduced five revolutionary resolutions for passage in the Virginia House of Burgess in 1765. One of his resolutions stated what never had been said before—namely, that only the Virginia General Assembly had the right to lay taxes against Virginians—not Mother England. During the debate of that resolution, the speaker of the Assembly and other burgesses accused Patrick Henry of treason for making such an assertion and others like it, to which Henry famously replied: “If this be treason, make the most of it.” The Divided Era p. 32.

2. Thomas Jefferson. “Men by their constitutions are naturally divided . . .” Jefferson was the philosopher of the Founders. Likely the most read of them all, he understood government and the human experience as much as anyone who has ever lived. The richness of his understanding was displayed with brevity and brilliance in quotes such as these.

On government . . .

“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.”

“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.”

On the important of following the Constitution . . .

“Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction.”

On defense . . . the original peace through strength quote . . .

“Whatever enables us to go to war, secures our peace.”

On life . . .

“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.”

1. George Washington. “More than anyone else, George Washington deserves credit for “uniting” our United States. That is the assessment of George Washington’s contemporaries and of historians alike.”

“Washington made the American experiment work because he constantly did the right thing—where perhaps no one else could or would. Consider that as the Revolution was winding down, and Washington’s stature was at a peak, “some of his senior officers had urged seizing congress and setting up a military dictatorship.” It was not the first time “dictatorial” power for Washington had been suggested. At that moment and that time, Washington stood in the breach of history. History could have gone one way or another—but not in Washington’s mind. Instead, “Washington, horrified, had confronted them. He urged them to ‘place full confidence in the purity of the intentions of Congress.’ Again, at Princeton, he warned his departing troops that ‘unless the principles of the federal government [are] properly supported and the powers of the union increased, the honor, dignity, and justice of the nation would be lost forever.’”

At the end of the war, standing even taller in the eyes of Americans and the world, Washington again did the historically unimaginable; he willingly relinquished his power for the greater good. The Divided Era p. 114.

They are why the greatest experiment in freedom began . . . and inspire me every day. I hope they do the same for you.

Happy 4th of July.

As we celebrate America’s Independence from a tyrannical government back in 1776, House Republicans in the swamp known as D.C. are considering voting on a bill that violates multiple freedoms that were specifically protected in the Bill of Rights by our Founding Fathers.

Justin Amash posted it perfectly on his Facebook page earlier:

You can read the bill here. Here is just one portion of it:

SEC. 5. GRANTING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL THE AUTHORITY TO DENY THE SALE, DELIVERY, OR TRANSFER OF FIREARMS OR EXPLOSIVES TO KNOWN OR SUSPECTED TERRORISTS.

(a) In General.–Section 922(t) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

“(7)(A) When the Attorney General is notified of a request to transfer a firearm or an explosive to a person who is being, or has been investigated during the previous 5 years, as a known or suspected terrorist, the Attorney General shall, as appropriate, notify relevant Federal, State, or local law enforcement agencies or intelligence agencies concerning the identity of the prospective transferee.

“(B) Upon being notified of a prospective transfer of a firearm or an explosive to a person who is being investigated as a known or suspected terrorist, the Attorney General or the United States attorney for the district in which the licensee is located may–

“(i) delay the transfer of the firearm or explosive for a period not to exceed 3 business days; and

“(ii) file an emergency petition in a court of competent jurisdiction to prohibit the transfer of the firearm or explosive, which petition shall receive the highest priority on the docket of that court.

“(C)(i) An emergency petition filed under subparagraph (B) shall be granted upon a showing of probable cause to believe that the prospective transferee will commit an act of terrorism, or is prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm under subsection (g) or (n).

“(ii) An emergency petition filed under subparagraph (B) to prohibit the transfer of a firearm or explosive may be granted only after a hearing–

“(I) of which the prospective transferee receives actual notice; and

“(II) at which the prospective transferee has an opportunity to participate with counsel.

“(iii) In the case of an emergency petition filed under subparagraph (B) which is denied, the court shall require that the United States pay the costs and attorney fees of the prospective transferee.”.

(b) Rule of Construction.–The amendments made by this section do not preclude the Attorney General from arresting and detaining a person, including a person described in section 922(t)(7) of title 18,

United States Code, with regard to whom an emergency petition has been filed under such paragraph, if the Attorney General has probable cause to believe that the person has committed, conspired to commit, or attempted to commit an act of terrorism.

If a person is a ‘known terrorist,’ why the hell aren’t they being prosecuted? What in the hell is wrong with Republicans that they have lost any semblance to the party of freedom and liberty? They’ve become no better than bottom feeder Democrats who abhor the Constitution unless they are pleading the 5th.

The reality is Americans have built this. Too many haven’t bothered paying attention to what’s going on in their local, state or federal government. When they hear about ridiculous laws that infringe upon EVERYONE’S rights, they don’t get it. They think these laws won’t affect them.

Clearly too many Americans have forgotten history and therefore are doomed to repeat it.

The government has grown to the point where they believe they are our overlords. They know what’s best for us so they’ll make these important decisions that DO NOTHING to stop the ‘bad guys’ but EVERYTHING to infringe upon the rights of EVERYONE.

Unfortunately, many Americans don’t even know what Independence Day is or why it ultimately happened. From The Tenth Amendment Center:

When people think of the causes of the American War for Independence, they think of slogans like “no taxation without representation” or cause célèbre like the Boston Tea Party.

In reality, however, what finally forced the colonials into a shooting war with the British Army in April 1775 was not taxes or even warrant-less searches of homes and their occupation by soldiers, but one of many attempts by the British to disarm Americans as part of an overall gun control program, according to David B. Kopel.

Furthermore, had the American colonies lost their war for independence, the British government intended to strip them of all their guns and place them under the thumb of a permanent standing army.

In his paper titled “HOW THE BRITISH GUN CONTROL PROGRAM PRECIPITATED THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION,” Kopel claims that various gun control policies by the British following the Boston Tea Party, including a ban on firearm and gunpowder importation, tells us not only the purpose of the Second Amendment, but its relevance within the context of today’s gun control debate.

The only difference between 1776 and 2016 is the tyrants are now in D.C.

You built that America. Happy Birthday.

Study Shows Networks Cover Trump’s Tweets But Not Kate’s Law

House passage of legislation to toughen penalties for illegal aliens who return to the U.S. after deportation was put on the back burner by network newscasts that devoted far more time to two anti-media tweets by President Donald Trump, according to a media watchdog group.

The Media Research Center tracked coverage of Trump’s tweets about MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough and compared it to coverage of House passage of two immigration bills.

One House bill would bar sanctuary cities from receiving federal grants. The other, known as Kate’s Law, would make it harder for illegal immigrants who commit crimes to re-enter the U.S. The law was named for Kate Steinle, who was shot to death in 2015 by an illegal immigrant with multiple felonies and deportations.

The Media Research Center reported that Thursday evening’s network news coverage gave 28 times more space to the tweets than the House action.

Collectively, the networks spent more than 12 minutes of coverage on Trump’s tweets. The House action received only 26 seconds of coverage, the Media Research Center reported, and that was on one network: NBC. The legislation received no mention whatsoever on CBS and ABC.

The Media Research Center kept up its analysis on the Friday morning news shows and found coverage of the tweets amounted to 52 times the reporting given to the House bills.

Overall, ABC, NBC and CBS devoted more than 24 minutes collectively of morning news show time Friday to the tweets. Only one network covered the immigration laws — CBS — and gave the House action 28 seconds of air time.

That disparity in coverage was attacked by commentator Emily Jashinsky, writing for the Washington Examiner.

“Although it’s unlikely the legislation will survive a vote in the Senate, the decision by two of the three major networks simply to blow it off is somewhat remarkable,” she wrote.

“Millions of viewers around the country still depend on nightly news programs to keep them informed on developments in Washington, a task that requires more respect for political balance than these networks are willing to muster. That number has long been in decline — and given editorial decisions like these, perhaps that’s a good thing if we’re hoping to have a well-informed voting population,”………….

Rapper Explains Why She Despises America and Americans!

0

Who do you keep giving your money to these American hating POS’s REALLY! They take your money lie to you call you names and you cant wait to bow in front of them.

Rapper Azealia Banks, 23, spoke frankly to Playboy Magazine about her problem with “fat white Americans,” and now, her comments have sparked controversy online.

Banks, a New York native, spoke candidly to Playboy about her dislike of America and her desire to move somewhere else.

“I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans,” Banks said. “All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms.

“Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma – that’s really America,” Banks continued.

The rapper goes on to talk about race and how she believes that black people deserve more credit for building America.

“Black people need reparations for building this country, and we deserve way more f****** credit and respect,” Banks frankly stated.

In addition to expressing her strong views on race and America, Banks also blasted fellow entertainer Lorde.

“It’s always about race,” Banks said in defense of her infamous Twitter rants. “’Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit about all these other b******, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner …y ’all motherf*****s still owe me reparations! That’s why it’s still about race. Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on. As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f*** out of here and I’m gonna leave y’all to your own devices.”

Banks’ comments have since gone viral, with many blasting her for her views.

“I am asking my husband to cancel his Playboy subscription,” one commenter wrote. “It is supposed to be an entertainment magazine not a race baiting magazine. People want to be entertained not berated and abused!”

Trump’s ‘feds’ now in Chicago to fight gun violence ‘epidemic’!

0

FINALLY a president who cares about Americans. ALL Americans! President Trump pushed his way into Chicago to help the good people of Chicago actually be able to go out and enjoy their city!

Months after taking to Twitter to say he would send in “the Feds” to help reduce Chicago’s murder rate, President Trump’s administration has sent in agents to combat the ongoing violence.

The Chicago Sun-Times first reported that about 20 additional agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been sent to the city.

Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed Friday that the federal government is sending help, while decrying the crime epidemic on the city’s streets.

“Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1714 shootings in Chicago this year!” Trump tweeted.

Sessions also told “Fox & Friends” that his department is assisting.

“We’ll have an impact in reducing shootings in Chicago,” he said, while saying police there are “demoralized” and city policies are not working.

“Murders are way, way too high,” he said.

Sessions subsequently released a written statement saying the administration has created the Chicago Gun Strike Force and is sending “20 more permanent ATF agents to Chicago, reallocating federal prosecutors and prioritizing prosecutions to reduce gun violence” and working with law enforcement partners.

“The Trump Administration will not let the bloodshed go on; we cannot accept these levels of violence,” he said.

Shortly after his inauguration, Trump tweeted “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”

The new set of agents will work with counterparts from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police on a strike force to solve shootings and arrest gun traffickers, according to the Sun-Times.

Included in the strike force are prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office and Cook County state’s attorney’s office, the Sun-Times reports, who will decided whether suspects in gun crime should be charged in state of federal court

Trump has previously voiced concern about violence in Chicago. Earlier in January, he posted, “If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!”

The ATF agents are working with about 20 counterparts from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police on a strike force whose mission is to solve shootings and hunt down gun traffickers through ballistics technology.

Prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office and Cook County state’s attorney’s office have been assigned to the force to decide whether suspects in gun crimes should be charged in state or federal court.

“The goal is the prosecute as many of these guys as possible federally where they will serve longer prison terms,” said Anthony Riccio, head of the Chicago Police Department’s organized crime unit.

The strike force is operating on intelligence gathered from the National Integrated Ballistics Information Network, ATF’s digital catalogue of the unique marks created when bullets are fired — like fingerprints for guns.

Last year, the Chicago Police Department submitted information involving 11,000 bullets and shell casings to the NIBIN system — about as many entries as Los Angeles and New York made combined.

70s Kids vs Today’s Kids…

0

As a child who grew up in the seventies, I’m flabbergasted at the degree of generational differences in health, medicine, food, safety, and general well-being of children. Don’t get me wrong, I love technology and all the advancements we’ve made in several areas, but at the same time when you break it down to the simplest ways of managing human lives, we’ve taken one step forward and three steps back. The level of fear we currently exhibit as parents and as a society towards children is at an unprecedented level. When comparing the two time periods, an element of certainty exists where we have now immersed our most precious assets into an toxic, overly hygienic, medicalized, obsessive compulsive, paranoid, anxious and at the very least, a “cowardice culture” where children are being trained and almost indoctrinated into a world where “the norm” is to fear everything and everyone.

1. Our Entertainment Was Each Other

We had no internet, cell phones, computers or video games. Not only were our lives free of close proximity electronic devices and their constant electromagnetic radiation, but this allowed us to entertain ourselves through peer interaction and physical activity. You’re talking about a dramatic decrease in the level of physical activity from just 40-50 years ago and it’s manifesting itself in obesity, insulin resistance, and precursors to diabetes in children as young as ten years old. We didn’t have these distractions taking us away from each other’s presence, which allowed us to interact, manage and entertain our emotional states with friends. Texting, instagraming and facebooking has turned our children into a generation of mindless drones who can only interact when they’re behind a keyboard, earpiece, speaker or headset–anything else is just too scary.

2. Playing Outside Was Normal, Not Prohibited 

Most people who pass by a park today and see 10-year old children playing alone, think “why” as fear strikes a chord. Why are they without their parents? Why are they playing alone without supervision? This was normal and just a way of life in the 70s. We stayed outside until the lights turned off in the summer or heard our parents screaming to come inside. Nobody called the police because a group of kids were playing alone on their street or in the park. When parents had people over, we were expected to go outdoors. We didn’t live in nanny state where unsupervised children were seen as having negligent parents. We should all be ashamed of creating a society where children are prohibited from playing outside with their friends after 6pm or chastising parents for allowing them to. And yes, we had child murderers, molesters, kidnappers back then too. We just didn’t freak out about the “what ifs” at the expense of our children’s freedom and expression of who they are. Now we have them cooped up in front of iPods, iPads, playstation, xbox and any other device that can lock their attention to a screen as long as they’re at home and our perception of security is at ease. Some people call that technological progress, but it’s nothing more than a safety net to ease our conscience and societal expectations gone adrift.

3. Children Were Not Labeled As ADHD, ADD, or Hyperactive. They Were Just Kids Being Kids 

Children today are being medicated at alarming rates for what appears to be normal childhood behavior. Yes, there are some children with legitimate behavioral issues but they are an extreme minority and none of these issues are solved by medication. The big problem is that we’re diagnosing and labeling common temper outbursts and other disruptive behavior in millions of children as attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). If you took a subset of 3-year old children from 1970 and transported them to our current timeline, you would see that not much has changed , however the way we deal with them has. We are putting kids on long-term stimulants as if it was candy. A nationwide CDC survey found that 11 percent of children ages 4 to 17 have received a diagnosis of ADHD, and about one in five boys. A vast majority are put on medications such as methylphenidate (commonly known as Ritalin) or amphetamines like Adderall which cause growth suppression, insomnia and hallucinations. About half a trillion US dollars is being wasted on unnecessary medication of young children for ADHD, of which almost 100 million is funded by Medicaid. The youngest kindergarten kids are 60 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than the oldest in the same grade, and also, by the time those groups reached the fifth and eighth grades, the youngest are more than twice as likely to be on prescription stimulants. We’ve taken all “hard to control” kids and lumped them into a couple of diagnostic categories of what we perceive as mental illness. That’s ridiculous. Let’s stop targeting children and start being present with them with new activities, adventure, and change. They need balance with activities that are calming, relaxing, and nurturing. Only then will these children respond to a support system that cares about their development rather than a pill to suppress the symptoms.

ENDING EPA’S TERRORIZING OF LANDOWNERS

0

There were a number of examples of how the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers abused their power to trample on the rights of homeowners.

One example is when Peter and Frankie Smith purchased 20-acres of desert land outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. One of the dry desert washes that ran through their property was filled with trash, so the Smiths cleaned up the trash. That’s when the big bad Army Corps of Engineers moved in and told them that wash was a ‘water of the United States’ and that their cleaning and smoothing of the wash constituted illegal dredging and pollution flow problems that could affect the Rio Grande River, some 25 miles away. By having the wash declared a water of the United States the Smiths were now subject to the rules and regulations of the Clean Water Act, which they were now in violation of according to the Army Corps of Engineers.

Then there is the case of Mike and Chantell Sackett, who purchased about two-thirds of acre in a new development. Their first task was to bring in loads of fill dirt and have the lot leveled so they could build their home on the lot. Before they could start building, officials from the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Army Corps of Engineers showed up on the site and ordered the couple to halt all activity. It turns out the agencies suddenly declared the land in the new subdivision was a wetland.  Six months later they received a compliance order from the EPA informing them that the lot was a wetland and that they had to restore it back to its natural condition. If they did not comply with the order, the EPA notice said that they could be fined up to $37,500 per day.

The Sacketts tried to appeal the order but were told by the EPA that decisions involving wetlands are not open to appeal. They took their case to the courts and all of the courts up to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that landowners had no right to appeal an EPA order involving wetlands until fines have been assessed. The case then went to the US Supreme Court who just released their ruling on the case.

In the majority decision, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote that the Sacketts should have the right to file a civil suit against the EPA under the Administrative Procedures Act since the EPA order is a final one and that the couple were facing the huge fines. He also wrote that the Clean Water Act, which is what the EPA was using to force the Sacketts to restore their property back to the original condition, is not exempt from judicial review.
