    American Thinker ^ | 6/30/15 | James Longstreet
    Federal involvement seems to be the exploited niche of the motivated Left. For it is the tax code and the special tax treatments carved into the most complicated compilation in the Western World that affords the activists their openings. The gay marriage issue was essentially an equal treatment issue regarding Social Security benefits of surviving spouses, estate taxes, and joint tax returns. All the emotional scenery was fluff. It was about money and how the federal government, based on marital status, taxes some people one way and others another. Next apparently on the docket are the churches. The same thread...

    Nicky Morgan is taking the fight against radicalisation into the classroom. On the Today programme, the Education Secretary outlined what her department is doing to support schools in tackling, what she called, this ‘very real threat’. The DfE will release new guidance for teachers today, offering ‘examples and support in how they might look for young people who are risk at radicalisation – perhaps changes of behaviour or things they might say’. But Morgan admitted there is a unclear line between what constitutes a ‘healthy debate’ and upholding ‘British values’: ‘Schools should be a safe space for young people to...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so unpopular in Kentucky that the state’s voters thought KFC’s Colonel Sanders would be a better senator that McConnell. According to PPP, “In spite of KFC’s weak poll numbers Colonel Sanders remains a beloved figure, with 71% of voters seeing him favorably to only 8% with an unfavorable view. In fact they even think Colonel Sanders could be part of the solution to the problems in Washington- by a 47/27 spread voters in the state say they think Colonel Sanders would make for a better US Senator than Mitch McConnell. Too bad he’s dead.”...

With the upcoming budget session, the Wisconsin Joint Finance Committee is expected to propose a plan to reform the University of Wisconsin System. While it is not yet finalized, unions warn the plan will cut $250 million in funding and will remove academic protections for professors such as teacher tenure. This latest union battles comes at the heels of a likely announcement Walker will run for president. With his previous labor reforms,...

But the rainbow-bedazzled partiers also had their share of random mayhem, including a person who allegedly drove a car into the parade, a woman who attempted to streak in front of Rahm Emanuel on a public dare from a Greek billionaire and the much more pointed die-in protest staged by a handful of #blacklivesmatter activists to raise awareness about the perceived white-washing of the LGBTQ movement.

    You may have noticed two “bright stars” in the sky shortly after dusk recently. The two bright spots are actually two of the brightest planets in the night sky: Jupiter & Venus. Since planets orbit the Sun on the Plane of the Ecliptic, Venus has been visually getting closer to Jupiter in the night sky each day this month. The closest point will be Tuesday evening when both planets will appear on top of each other creating a very bright “star” in the western sky between 8-9pm (Central) June 30th. Astronomers call this overlap a conjunction. A similar series of...
  • Three ways conservatives can take out gay marriage: (Vanity).

    Me | 6-28-2015 | JSDude1
    Ok so here's my take on ways that conservatives can take on gay marriage legally and reverse this aweful decision. #1. We can through the legislative process radically simplify the tax code so that it doesn't deal with marriage and is much simpler, also make it so that anyone can easily gain the power of atty, inheritance from anyone else. Marriage where it intersects with government would be separated, the government wouldn't have the motivation or the power to regulate marriage. Any kind of "marriage certificate issued by the govt. would be moot and void. We'd basically be back to...

    Question: "What does the term 'Ichabod' mean in the Bible?" Answer: The term Ichabod is found in two places in the Bible,1 Samuel 4:21 and 14:3. Ichabod was the son of Phinehas and the grandson of Eli, the priest of the Lord in Shiloh. The sad story of Eli and his two wayward sons, Phinehas and Hophni, is found in 1 Samuel, chapters 2 and 4. Hophni and Phinehas died in battle with the Philistines who captured the Ark of the Covenant and took it away from Israel. Upon hearing this terrible news, Eli fell backward off his chair and...

    WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama says too many Americans are working long days for less pay than they deserve because of outdated rules on overtime pay. Obama is unveiling a proposal to require overtime pay for workers who earn nearly $1,000 per week. That's more than double the current threshold. Obama says it would extend overtime protection to about 5 million workers. Obama says the proposal is good for workers and good for business owners who pay their employees what they deserve. He says that's because those companies will no longer be undercut by competitors who are paying workers less.

    Turns out there is a silver lining to five justices on the U.S. Supreme Court committing what amounts to cultural self-immolation last week — it winnowed the crowded field of 2016 GOP presidential candidates considerably. After analyzing the historical demographics of the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, along with the overall environment on the ground, I’m confident we already know who can win here next February and who cannot. Championship Tier Given the demographic dominance of evangelicals in the Iowa Caucuses, where they’re about 60 percent of the vote, as well as Iowa Republicans’ documented disdain for activist judges (see Iowa’s historic...

    YES, New Laws are needed for "Same Sex Marriages." The Supreme Court decision on gay marriage must be amended by stating gay marriage is a health risk to the community. As we know gays are prohibited from giving blood. If you have ever given blood this is one of the questions, "have you had sex with another man". Many STD are transmitted by homosexuals. Therefore there should be a mandatory WAITING PERIOD for a same sex marriage license to be issued. Tests must be required at the application time and at the time the marriage license is issued. A waiting...

One refugee told media that the Yazidis left their camp because conditions are unbearable. “All that matters now is to move on, we don’t even care where we go,” one female refugee said. “We are dying daily, and I can’t stand it anymore.”

    Turkey has sent shock waves through the Middle East by preparing plans to send troops into Syria for the first time, turning the civil war into an international conflict on Europe’s borders. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has authorised a change in the rules of engagement agreed by the Turkish parliament to allow the army to strike at Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), as well as the Assad regime, according to local newspapers. The aim is to establish a buffer zone for refugees and against Isil, but Mr Erdogan has also suggested that the main target of the...

    If you intend to buy Ted Cruz's new book, "A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America," then today or tomorrow (6/29 or 6/30) is the absolute best time to do it. It will be released tomorrow, 6/30, and its "numbers" will be counted at that point. On Amazon, with pre-orders, it has already reached #1 in Political Leader Biographies, but it's only #143 in all books. The bigger Ted's book's numbers are, the more press it will get, and the better it makes him look overall. If his book rockets upward in the next couple of days, that...
