  • Black Lives Matter movement gains momentum in Chandler following church vandalism, theft

    Arizona Daily Sun ^ | November 25, 2015 | Becca Smouse
    CHANDLER - A pastor was hoping to start a community conversation on racial equality when he and his predominantly white congregation installed a sign supporting the Black Lives Matter movement outside their Chandler church. Among the first people they heard from were vandals, who altered and then stole the sign. "(Congregation members) were sad, but not resigned," said the Rev. Andy Burnette of the Valley Unitarian Universalists. "To see that it's still controversial to say black lives matter saddened some of those folks." A "Black Lives Matter" banner was hung in early November with more than 100 signatures from members...

    But how will UT-Austin handle the lawsuit that Nabulsi and others in his group are now threatening to bring? Yes, the aggressors are potentially suing for having been..."offended?" "Violated?" Predictably, Nabulsi's group is not only threatening to sue, they are whining that they-the bullies-in-chief-no longer feel "safe" on campus.They are enacting the role of both the persecutor and the victim, just as Palestinian Jihadists do. They-the Jerusalem jihadists and the American students in their image-initiate the violence and then insist that the world count them as "victims."Earlier this month, on November 13th, twelve members of a group calling itself...

    ".....At dozens of schools nationwide, a small but vocal number of students insist an intolerably hostile racial atmosphere permeates campus life. An activist corps no more authentic than the Occupy Wall Street movement stirs the hate pot, pushed forward by cheering media. To wide dismay, faculties and administrations applaud Black Lives Matter-style indictments and cower before student insults. The accusations are vague and often delusional. The phantom of "white privilege" marks claims of supremacy, institutional racism, and indelible race-based injustices. These follow on recent campus outrages over rape culture and sexual violence, heteronormativity and transgender rights, climate change, and any...

    In a display of solidarity with campus activists, the Penn State Board of Trustees voted unanimously to ban the making of snowmen on campus. "The snowman is the ultimate expression of white privilege," said a Black Lives Matter activist who refused to be identified. "It is a symbol of our hateful past and must be removed from our national consciousness. After all, every snowman is white. Can any rational person dispute this?" The vote culminated a months-long campaign of petition drives and public rallies. The goal was to get the ban in place before the first snowfall. With the vote,...

    Ever get into an argument with an anti-gunner and found yourself for a loss of words as how to refute his arguments? You know he's wrong, but he's rattling off supposed "facts" so quick and spouting bullcrap so damn glib and loud, you just can't get a word in edgewise. If only you had all the facts and arguments available on the tip of your tongue, you'd be able to put him in his place. This document can help! It provides a list of quick comebacks to most anything you can expect an anti-gunner to say.

The most prominent protester shouted, “Nobody makes me submit, me nobody owns me, I’m my own prophet!” before being dragged and kicked off the stage by angered Muslims. The video, below, shows the incident that took place at the Muslim Salon in Pontoise, France, a town just outside of Paris, which ended “violently” according to one eyewitness.

We include retired military and intelligence, investigative journalists, and political activists.” IN this regard, said association hardly comes out of thin air. It is borne via recognition of what this investigative journalist brings to the mix. Along this trajectory, an expertise in the Muslim Brotherhood is acknowledged....

That’s what some Amazon.com reviewers are insisting after a new book was released last week.

    Our Out-of-Control Court Today our nation's Supreme Court decided that it is the Supreme Being. It spit on God's Word and endorsed the abominable, immoral concept that the definition of marriage can be expanded to include a union between two people of the same sex. The God of this universe is the One who created and defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman, and no one has the authority to change that definition (Matthew 19:4-5). Further, God's Word makes it crystal clear that homosexuality is an abomination in God's sight and its practice is sufficient to...

    The American experiment in self-governance relies heavily on an engaged and informed citizenry, who understand the philosophical foundations of individual liberty. This is why it is important to read philosophers like Frederic Bastiat, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, Adam Smith, and others, as well as the writings of our Founders. Without historical context, we cannot understand the foundation of liberty. And without an understanding of the foundation of liberty, we cannot partake in civic engagement. As citizens, we are given rights from our Creator — but with those rights come certain responsibilities. These are civic duties.

Nova policy requires administrator approval before students hand out or post materials at school, the lawsuit states. In a letter to Zinos, the school's top administrator said the school has come to limit political, religious and controversial speech to its high school students in response to parental concerns.

    A group of 28 U.S. attorneys general is urging chief executive officers of five major retailers, including Walmart, to stop selling tobacco products, saying it is contradictory to carry such items in stores that also provide health care services. The companies receiving a letter on Sunday from the group were Wal-Mart Stores Inc, supermarket operators Kroger Co, Safeway Inc, which operate pharmacies, and drugstore chains Walgreen Co and Rite Aid Corp. …

    The revolutionary guerilla network, the Sons of Liberty, was a grassroots reaction to unjust taxation. It got off to a roaring start in 1765 by burning the Boston commissioner of stamps in effigy, and burning his home and offices to the ground. These first Tea Partiers invented American gonzo. Some smeared with paint and sporting feathers, in December of 1773 they dumped the equivalent of $1,000,000 worth of tea into Boston Harbor to protest the British Tea Act. But because the ships were owned by Americans, they were not damaged, and the decks were swept clean when the festivities ended....

    Proponents of the rule of law and advocates of American exceptionalism have complied a list of 80 Members of Congress who have not committed to oppose amnesty. The only way to get them to oppose amnesty or "legal status" for illegal aliens is to contact them and demand they back the rule of law and oppose the so-called immigration "reform" principles floated at the recent Republican retreat.To assist you in this effort, you can sign our letter to Congress or copy the letter and click the link to your Representative's "contact me" page (see the list below) to paste it...

    Witnessing thousands of South Africans of all races vote in the first free elections after the fall of apartheid was a “great, life-changing experience” for Bishop John Ricard. “It was a very exhilarating experience to see old enemies finally reconciling and to actually see the birth of a country,” remembered Bishop Ricard, a former auxiliary bishop of Baltimore from 1984 to 1997 who served as an official electoral observer in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, during the April 26-29, 1994, election. “We saw people who had never voted in their life – old people and young people,” Bishop Ricard said. “It...

    If you really want to have an impact on something you stand a much better chance if you're prepared. The same goes for party activism. I've written quite a bit about the importance of getting involved in a political party, and about how parties are organized. But how do you go about trying to be effective over the long haul? What should you do? What should you focus on, and why? The Boy Scout motto "Be prepared" comes to mind in the sense of being prepared ahead of time for the situations they may face. It's a good application for...

    Turkey Day Talking Points-FReepers Unite Hey all you keyboard activists! You blog, bump, reply and post. You wordsmith, criticize, edify and GIF. You are overeducated and under-motivated, but now, you can make a bigger difference. It's time for you to do your part on this Thanksgiving Holiday. You know all those LIV's (low information voters) and cherished independents you will see this long weekend. Well, they need a dose of reality to wash down the stuffing and mashed potatoes. Forget the lectures, the name dropping, the quotes, the diatribes and the references to obscure texts and authors. Keep it simple...

    In the present article, I draw your attention to a couple of publications in the late 1980s that have provided a blueprint for the homosexual movement to the present day, a plan of action for a massive and unrelenting propaganda campaign to win over the hearts and minds of the heterosexual majority. The success of the homosexual movement depends absolutely on the successful execution of this plan, because the entire gay-lesbian population is only about 1.5% of the general population and could not possibly wield much power and influence by itself. If you have been paying any attention at all...

    I have been involved in editing the article on Death Panels on Wikipedia. For those who are interested in Obamacare the original claim by Sarah Palin that Obamacare would include panels that would limit treatment to achieve cost savings and might be expected to result in people not getting treatment they need, particularly older or disabled people, seems like yet another obvious fact that the left cannot accept. No where is this more clear than in the Wikipedia article on Death Panels which, in violation of Wikipedia rules is essentially a long diatribe against Gov. Palin. I am requesting a...
