    "Django Unchained" actress Daniele Watts cried out as a victim of racism this week after she was caught having sex in public. The usual Liberal media bought her story attacking the police as racists. Daniele Watts claimed she had been profiled (by police) for "kissing" her white boyfriend.THERE'S ONLY ONE PROBLEM... The facts of Daniele Watts' story don't add up.The police didn't approach Daniele because she was "kissing" her boyfriend. The police were responding to multiple complaints from locals that Daniele was having lewd sex in broad daylight for everyone to see in a car — with the car door...
  • VETERAN THROWN OUT OF SUBWAY RESTAURANT (Moslem Owner) BECAUSE OF SERVICE DOG

    WABC 7 New Jersey ^ | 08 SEP 2014 | Sarah Wallace
    PATERSON, N.J. (WABC) -- A disabled veteran was thrown out of a fast food restaurant because of his service dog. The incident itself is troubling enough, but you won't believe what happened after the Eyewitness News investigators arrived at the restaurant to demand answers. It's one of the most bizarre exchanges Eyewitness News has ever had on a story. Federal law is very clear: Dogs are recognized as service animals and all businesses open to the public, including restaurants, must allow them in. But a U.S. Army veteran says a Subway restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey, blatantly ignored the law,...

    ...Crist spoke to over 1,000 voters on Saturday night, in Downtown Orlando about his faith and vision for the future of Florida.... The group in attendance came in the bus loads, and the venue was at capacity. They leaned to the left as they cheered Crist’s pledge to raise the minimum wage, healthcare, and supporting policies popular with the dreamers. “I did all of this as a Republican” Crist said “Imagine what I’ll do as a Democrat!”.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek7vKh4vOzI On Sunday, Bill and Hillary Clinton were Iowa attending the final Tom Harkin Steak Fry event, and Bill was repeatedly pinned down in conversation by folks in attendance. During one such encounter, Clinton got into a discussion with a pro-Palestinian activist who managed to elicit a surprising, or not so surprising, comment from the former President. Activist: If we don’t force [Netanyahu] to make peace, we will not have peace. Clinton: Wait, wait, wait. First of all, I agree with that. But in 2000, Ehud Barak, I got him to agree to something that I'm not sure I would...

    Rumors are rampant about male public safety employees in Ceres placing hidden cameras aimed at women, and the city isn't saying much about it. The stories about cameras placed under a woman's desk and in changing areas at the Ceres Police Department came to the attention of the Stanislaus chapter of the NAACP. President Frank Johnson says they got so many calls they thought it was a prank, and he says if it's not true, they'll apologize - but if it is true, the organization will take action against it. The city attorney would only say action is being taken...

    Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, tore apart President Obama’s claim that “ISIL is not Islamic,” calling Obama both the “excommunicator-in-chief” and “enabler-in-chief” for islamist groups. Jasser labeled Obama the “excommunicator-in-chief” for publicly declaring who is and isn’t ‘Islamic’ during his prime-time address on the Islamic State. Jasser argued the Islamic State is indeed ‘Islamic’ and is representative of the dangerous combination of religion and state in Islamic countries: [The Islamist groups] want nothing more than to suppress the voices of reform. If you talk to reformers, they will tell you that the Islamic State...

    The United States has a problem with Islamic State. Its problem is that it refuses to acknowledge why Islamic State is a problem. The problem with Islamic State is not that it is brutal. Plenty of regimes are brutal.Islamic State poses two challenges for the US. First, unlike the Saudis and even the Iranians, IS actively recruits Americans and other Westerners to join its lines.This is a problem because these Americans and other Westerners have embraced an ideology that is viciously hostile to every aspect of Western civilization.Last Friday, Buzz Feed published a compilation of social media posts published by...

    American Thinker ^ | 9/16/2014 | Carol Brown
    What, and who, is a moderate Muslim?Islamic values are codified in the Koran. The idea that some Muslims might interpret those values in a moderate way is like saying there’s such a thing as jihad lite. There’s no getting around the fact that a central tenet of the Koran is mass murder – whether through the directive to kill infidels (non-believers), apostates (those who leave Islam), or hypocrites (Muslims who don’t practice their religion appropriately). In other words, most of civilization is fair game for slaughter. What, pray tell, would be a moderate version of that? And if people try...

    As you may have heard previously (if you live in the West), Muslim inbreeding is a HUGE problem that nobody in the Islamic world has had the courage to confront -or even acknowledge- due to it's outright endorsement by Muhammed, who led-by-example and married his own first cousin. But the (ongoing) genetic damage to the offspring in such marriages is severe... and naturally, getting worse within any society in which this nonsense is allowed to continue. Of course, the practice of first-cousin-or-closer marriage is banned in civilized, Judeo-Christian countries, as it has been since the days of Moses. Conversely, it was sanctioned...

The President who once declared the War on Terror over, used variants of the word “terror” eighteen times in his speech. And what of the President’s speech? Put it to you this way — it is the first time he has wanted to talk about jobs and the economy in a long time. Basically, our strategy is to outsource the military’s job to Syrian rebels.

    Three members of NATO's International Security Assistance Force were killed in an attack in Kabul on Tuesday, the coalition said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing targeting a convoy of foreign forces in the Afghan capital, the militant group's spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said. A large plume of smoke filled the sky over Kabul, and the U.S. Embassy sounded its "duck-and-cover" alarm. Witness Sakhi Ahmad said the explosion took place on Kabul International Airport Road, near the Supreme Court compound. ISAF and Afghan officials are investigating the blast, the coalition said.

    Turkey's newly elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, aided by his faithful new Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, begins his term of office with a major overhaul of the country's education system. Although adopted a year ago, the reform plan, which has largely gone unnoticed, begins this year and extends Islamic religious education to all school grades. Only religious high schools (Imam Hatip Lisesi) offered such an education as part of their training programme for the country's Muslim clergy. At the same time, the reform extends compulsory schooling from Grade 8 to Grade 12. Erdogan's new Turkey, which plans to celebrate the...

    More than 100,000 Obamacare enrollees are set to lose their new insurance coverage at the end of the month because they have not verified their legal status in the United States. There are currently about 115,000 individuals who signed up on the federal marketplace who have not provided paperwork to resolve discrepancies between their citizenship or immigration status indicated on their insurance application and what the federal government has on record, the Obama administration said Monday. Individuals must be legal residents of the U.S. in order to purchase insurance coverage through the health law's new exchanges.

    We live in times when many call good or “no big deal” what God calls sin. This is especially true in the area of sexuality where whole sectors of our society not only tolerate, but even celebrate sexual practices that the Scriptures call gravely sinful, and which will lead to hell if not repented of. Acts of fornication (pre-marital sex) and homosexual acts cannot be considered acceptable by any Catholic, or any person who sincerely accepts the Scripture as the Word of God. And even for those who do not share our faith, acts of fornication, and homosexual acts can...

    It is one of the tragedies of recent cultural history that, thanks to Mel Gibson's preposterous movie "Braveheart," the world knows more about William Wallace's short-lived Scottish rebellion of 1296-97 than about Robert the Bruce. For it was Bruce who, after 18 years of plotting and war making, finally threw off the yoke of the English king and consolidated a sense of Scottish identity. "Never will we on any conditions be subjected to the lordship of the English," said the Declaration of Arbroath, a diplomatic letter commissioned by Bruce in 1320. "It is in truth not for glory, nor riches,...

Belfort is the author of a best-selling tell-all memoir that chronicled his boozy, drug-fueled, high-flying Wall Street lifestyle running 1990s-era boiler room Stratton Oakmont. The convicted felon’s book was adapted into a film directed by Martin Scorsese starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Belfort was arrested in 1998. In 2003, he was convicted for securities fraud and money laundering. He served a 22-month prison sentence after being sentenced to four years. He was also ordered...

    It's unusual for the United States - by far the biggest defense spender in the world - to seek scrapped military equipment from other nations. Typically, those roles are reversed. But for the past several years, according to internal emails obtained by The Virginian-Pilot, the U.S. Navy has been negotiating to acquire Japan's retired fleet of MH-53E Sea Dragons. The Navy wants to harvest the old helicopters for parts to help keep its own Sea Dragons flying until 2025. "It's telling when we are put in a position where we need to buy scrapped aircraft to keep ours going," said...

Prosecutors say Dr. Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo had a fatal attraction. "Evidence will show she became totally obsessed with him and wanting him," said prosecutor Justin Keiter. Bombshell revelations were made within the first few minutes of the trial. Prosecutors say Dr. George Blumenschein had a pregnant longtime live-in girlfriend, at the same time he started an affair with Dr. Gonzalez-Angulo. They told jurors that relationship soured, providing a motive for Gonzalez to lace her lover's coffee with...

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was meant to be a purely defensive organization. When the Brussels Treaty of 1948 established the European Defence Alliance of five European countries, it was Canada’s Minister of Foreign affairs, Louis St. Laurent, who proposed the alliance be expanded to include the United States and Canada. One year later, in April 1949, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was born. The primary purpose of the new organization was to defend member states from any attack from the Soviet Union and to act in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations. NATO was born...

    An overhauled The View kicked off this morning with no fireworks, but, of course, it’s only Day 1. The show opened glutinously, with The New Ladies Of The View kissing the rings of Barbara Walters, sitting on a throne, who ordered them to “go out there and let them see why we have the best show in daytime TV.” (Babs stuck around for the rest of the show, looking sort of third wheel-ish, according to a source.) Whoopi Goldberg assumed her long-held position of air traffic controller, settling that question for now as to whether she or Rosie O’Donnell would...

    (AP) -- The extremist-held Iraqi city of Mosul is set to usher in a new school year. But unlike years past, there will be no art or music. Classes about history, literature and Christianity have been "permanently annulled." The Islamic State group has declared patriotic songs blasphemous and ordered that certain pictures be torn out of textbooks. But instead of compliance, Iraq's second largest city has -- at least so far -- responded to the Sunni militants' demands with silence. Although the extremists stipulated that the school year would begin Sept. 9, pupils have uniformly not shown up for class,...

    Senators are not permitted to use Senate cash to fly to fundraisers - but that didn’t stop Democratic Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu from taking 43 trips on her Senate office account. The Perkins Coie law firm reviewed Landrieu’s travel from her 18 years in the Senate: The report found that Landrieu's official office paid $33,727.02 -- about 11 percent of the total amount her official office paid for chartered flights during that time -- should have been prorated and paid by her campaign. Landrieu blamed the mistakes on "sloppy bookkeeping" in a written apology. Her constituents, however, may not be...

    The environmental group Earthjustice, funded by George Soros and joined by the Sierra Club and ForestEthics, is suing the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) in order to prevent crude oil from North Dakota’s Bakken formation to be moved to California. The suit is reportedly in reaction the Kern County Board of Supervisors’ approval last Tuesday of Alon USA Energy's plan to expand the rail terminal at its Bakersfield, CA refinery. The expansion of the terminal would create the state’s largest crude-by-rail facility and allow the terminal to import five times as much crude oil by train as it already does, Earthjustice is also claiming...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Los Angeles Unified School District Police officials are considering whether they need the armored vehicle and grenade launchers they received from the U.S. military. The military hardware at the disposal of LAUSD police officers includes a 20-foot-long, 14-ton armored transport vehicles, much like the ones used to move Marines in Iraqi combat zones. The tank is worth $733,000 and the school district’s police force got it from the government for free. How would LAUSD use such a vehicle? “For us? That vehicle would be used for extraordinary circumstances,” LAUSD Police Chief Steve Zipperman said. The tank,...
  • For RadioShack, the end is near

    Gentlemen and gentlewomen of a certain age harbor fond memories of trips to RadioShack.

Whatever one’s view of this American institution with about 27,000 employees, it is near death. On Thursday, RadioShack warned that it may file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
