  • Rules For Traditionals: How People In Wedding Trades Can Defend Themselves

    The Federalist ^ | April 20, 2015 | Bruce Takawani
    The successful shutting down (or at least shutting up) of non-groupthink-compliant wedding cake and floral businesses has given gay-marriage agitators and their backers a taste of the vast power of ideological extortion in 2015 America. I’m optimistic that the law will eventually come to its senses and give wide berth to Christians in the wedding trades, or even to non-Christian libertarians who simply don’t want to be told who they have to do business with. Perhaps James O’Keefe will covertly record owners of a black-owned florist shop being asked to create an arrangement for a “KKK” event, or a Muslim-owned...
  • Stunned Greeks React To Initial Capital Controls And The "Decree To Confiscate Reserves

    Zerohedge ^ | 04/20/2015 | Tyler Durden
    Earlier today, following weeks of speculation, Greece finally launched the first shot across the bow of capital controls, when it decreed that due to an "extremely urgent and unforeseen need" (ironically the need was quite foreseen since about 2010, but that is a different story), it would be "obliged" to transfer - as in confiscate - "idle cash reserves" located across the country's local governments (i.e., various cities and municipalities) to the Greek central bank. Several hours later the decree which was posted in the government gazette has finally percolated among the population, and the response to what even ordinary...

    Fix Bayonets ^ | April 20, 2015 | Danny Jeffrey
    I am certain that most of my readers have heard the Joseph Stalin quote "The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic." Only a totally heartless human being could have such an outlook. One such a man is Barrack Hussein Obama, and he is proving it every single day. Several years ago when fifty one percent of this nation were singing Obama's praises, a large portion of the remaining forty nine percent were saying that Obama was incompetent. I have never believed that; writing instead that his apparent incompetence was actually a carefully...

    Thought Crimes ^ | 4-16-15 | Chris Shugart
    Back in the Sixties, there was a popular bumper sticker slogan that read “question authority.” In that dubious era of phony psychedelic bohemians and inane pseudo-revolutionaries, it was one of the few pieces of advice I took seriously. Even today it remains good advice, and perhaps even more so. Questioning authority lies at the foundation of how and why this country was formed. The War of Independence was the ultimate challenge to an authority that hadn’t only become questionable, but beyond toleration as well. The framework of the Constitution was designed in part to allow both its citizens and its...
  • What Muslims Just Did at the US Capitol Is Being Called “Historic”… We’re Under Attack

    Conservative Tribune ^ | April 15, 2015
    Something happened on Capitol Hill Monday that some people are calling “historic,” which others view as cunning political subterfuge. The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations held their first ever National Muslim Advocacy Day in our nation’s capitol, where they lobbied a number of members of Congress on behalf of Muslims around the country. With nearly 300 delegates from 20 different states, the advocates represented a number of different Muslim organizations here in America. After receiving tips on effective lobbying from political experts, the Muslim advocates fanned out and visited some 200 different Congressional offices to make their case. But counterterrorism...

    The Texas licensed open carry bill has passed the third read vote in the House. An amendment by Dutton was added on the third read.  The substance of the amendment is that merely possessing a holstered handgun is not sufficient reason to detain or make an investigatory stop.   On the third read, an amendment must obtain a 2/3 majority to be approved.  This amendment reads: CERTAIN INVESTIGATORY STOPS AND INQUIRIES PROHIBITED.   A peace officer may not make an investigatory stop or other temporary detention to inquire as to whether a person possesses a handgun license solely because the person...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 04/20/15 | Jim Yardley
    The United States needs to respond to Iran with something beyond promising them that we will do everything they ask without demur. Debbie Wasserman Shultz demands that anyone who questions our Dictator-in-Chief about his so called “negotiations” with Iran be prepared to offer alternatives to solve the Iran nuclear weapon problem. Actually, considering the demand is put forward by the Democrat Party’s Loon-in-Chief is really pretty reasonable. Now, I’m not part of the Republican establishment, in fact, I’m not even a registered Republican. But I do tend to be very conservative when it comes to defending our country. So how...

    Liiberty lovers, wake up and get serious about resisting the left-wingers, cultural marxists, social justice warriors Left-wingers and progressives in America are becoming insufferable, are they not? It’s quite apparent that they have no desire to “live and let live,” but want to force their delusions off onto everyone else. You will live, think, and do as the Left tells you, whether you like it or not. Even in the pettiest of ways, they can’t help themselves. Take, for example, this story coming out of the University of Oregon. To summarize for the reader, a student named Elle Mallon, who...

    If anything needs cutting or confiscating is the politicians' power and insatiable desire to spend the taxpayers' money The Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, gave a speech on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, in which he proposed, among other things, raising the retirement age from 67 to 69. He stated that, “We should remember that Social Security at its core should be retirement insurance. I’m suggesting that Americans pay into the system throughout the course of their life, knowing that it will be there, if they need it, to support them in their later years, so seniors will not grow...

Days ago I enthusiastically watched “Persecuted,” a movie that, according to leftist Dorri Olds, is “made up of mostly real-life conservatives.” Olds, who watched its premiere last year, adds that it “was pure religious right propaganda” and that it is a “A Movie For Christian Conservatives Only.” So it is just for me! According to WorldNetDaily, “‘Persecuted’ tells the story of evangelist John Luther’s life-and-death battle...

In the story itself, MSNBC's Adam Howard complaints that Hillary is the victim of "sexism" and cartoonish caricatures of her character, rather than on "facts" (emphasis mine):The former first lady and current 2016 presidential candidate is depicted here and in virtually every other American comedy routine as a scheming careerist who sees her husband’s rise to power as little more than a springboard for her...

    Fox News president Roger Ailes thinks Ted Cruz could become the Republican nominee. But he doesn't appear to think much of him. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ailes was asked whether he thought Cruz could win the the GOP nomination. His answer: Sure, it could happen. Because just about anybody could win, right? "Listen, we elected Warren G. Harding. Anybody has a chance," Ailes said. "You don't know who you're going to be running against. If the other guy falls on his rear end, you could win." Harding -- ouch. For those of us who haven't taken an...

    Kat Steed, left, and Dixie Allen hold hands in the Mormon church’s Temple Square, Jan. 14, 2015, in Salt Lake City. Steed, who escaped the FLDS in Colorado City, Arizona, calls polygamy “poisonous.” On a chilly winter morning at sunrise in Salt Lake City, the sun glints on the snowcapped mountains that surround Utah’s state capital and the dazzling white Mormon temple that dominates the downtown area. All is quiet. But change is in the air in this deeply religious, blood-red Republican state — upheaval, even. Same-sex marriage became legal in Utah last October, a dramatic cultural shift for many,...

The act, called “Asking for It,” is performed by Truscott. According to her website, Truscott will be “dressed only from the waist up and ankles down,” and the show “undoes and does in the rules and rhetoric about rape, comedy and the awkward laughs in between.” Her site continues, “With commentary from George Carlin, Louis C.

    Two months ago, Action News brought you the story about one local organization researching into a possible secession for 15 towns in Upstate New York to Pennsylvania. Governor Andrew Cuomo’s (D) decision to ban hydraulic fracking in New York compelled the Upstate New York Towns Association to look into the idea. This month, the organization is releasing more information on the matter. Carolyn Price, president of the Upstate New York Towns Association, shared the group’s findings with Action News exclusively this week. Price said Upstate New York is currently in an “economic death spiral.” She attributes her statement to various...

    Local officials at Michigan’s ground zero for wind energy are telling wind developers “enough is enough.” Huron County has 328 wind turbines, more than all of the other Michigan counties combined. But it has just enacted a moratorium on any additional ones until stricter regulations for industrial wind turbines can be put in place. “What this means is no turbines for people who don’t want them,” Huron County Commissioner John Nugent said. “The people who want them can still have them as long as it doesn’t adversely affect their neighbors.” At its final March meeting the Huron County Commission voted...

    According to Textio, a program that checks for gender bias in writing, bullet points and words such as “proven” and “under pressure” have a male bias. Textio was created by Dr. Kieran Snyder, who held “leadership roles at Microsoft and Amazon,” and Jensen Harris, who also worked for Microsoft. It cost $1.5 million to create. Textio checks for bias in favor of men or women in job listings, as well as kickstarter campaigns. According to it, having too many bullet points in a job listing “often turns women candidates away,” and are rated as biased against women. Other words that...

    It is hardly a new concept. The very same Democrat Party used these tactics over 50 years ago in my home state of Mississippi. The primary enforcers of Party doctrine in those days was the Ku Klux Klan. The victims were Black Americans who wanted nothing more than to exercise their First Amendment rights, and to participate in the political process and vote. In turn, they were subjected to harassment, intimidation, and much, much worse. It didn’t end with a kumbaya moment of clarity on the part of the Democrats-In-Charge. No, it ended with the exposure of the criminal activity,...

    A British journalist is being called “controversial” because she has spoken the truth about Italy’s efforts to save Islamist warriors from drowning off its shores. Katie Hopkins has called for gunships to finish off what is left of the latest invasion of Europe by crazed Islamists bent on destroying the continent in a fiery holocaust to please their god. Hopkins has suggested that, “You may as well set up a Libya-to-Italy P&O ferry,” which unfortunately is just what has developed between Libya and Italy.

McHenry showed up to get her car that had been towed from the parking lot of a northern Virginia Chinese restaurant. She had left the vehicle in the parking lot all night. A security tape...

That being said… it’s the method we have, so for the time being at least, the games begin in Iowa… Our major-party presidential nominees are selected through a time-honored tradition. Based on the theory that the people best suited to select a president are those who know him best, our system relies on aspiring candidates moving into Iowa and New Hampshire for months at a time, visiting small towns throughout these...

    The Obama Administration remained undaunted by yet another court ruling against its attempts to compel religious groups to fund abortion coverage in their health insurance plans. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito issued an order preventing the Obama Administration from forcing religious groups in Pennsylvania to pay for abortion-causing drugs mandated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Supreme Court had previously blocked HHS from imposing similar mandates on the Little Sisters of the Poor, Hobby Lobby, Wheaton College, and the University of Notre Dame.

They did the best they could to rise above the vulgar disdain either side would have for its opponents. Most importantly, they not only wrote the Constitution, they believed in the values upon which the text was based. Theirs was an abiding love of liberty as an inalienable right guaranteed not by men, but by the Creator. There was no need to demonize an opponent and temperance was the only way to...

Shopping around for the best school "wasn't a problem for me," Putnam said. "I don't want anyone else to pick and choose for my kids' future."

The union pointed the finger at “the ultraright” for pushing for photo identification as a requirement to vote. However, the same union has no problem demanding a photo ID for something as simple as a member wanting to leave it. Ryan...

    Sen. Bob Corker has authored a bill to hand President Obama the Imperium Magnum—in Rome it was called “dictator”—in regards to his caplituating “deal” with Iran.  In doing so, he has not only trashed the Constitution, but also the Senate’s own rules, bestowing an authority never intended for the chief executive to possess. The Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has authority, by Senate Rule XXX, to act upon treaties, but Corker, along with Sen. Robert Menendez and 91%-certain-to-be-running-for-president Sen. Lindsey Graham, have come up with a scheme to make it appear as if the Senate opposed Obama’s nuclear dalliance with Iran’s regime,...

    Here we have an interesting look at similarities. What does this portend for the future - tell us about the Democratic Party? Putin and Hillary employ similar tactics, have similar temperaments, engage in soft and hard power projection, and command and control a state media. I'd like to think, that here in the United States, we still have a say in who our chief executive is. The GOP has a large and varied selection of serious (and some not so serious) contenders vying for the Republican nomination. The Democratic Party has one candidate - Hillary (very Castroesque). Which brings me...

    As if anyone actually needed another reason to move out of the crazy state of California, now it is being reported that conditions in some areas of the state “are like a third-world country” due to the multi-year megadrought that has hit the state. In one California county alone, more than 1,000 wells have gone dry as the groundwater has disappeared. The state is turning back into a desert, and an increasing number of homes no longer have any water coming out of their taps or showerheads. So if you weren’t scared away by the wildfires, mudslides, high taxes, crime,...

    Breitbart contributor Sonnie Johnson suggested the Obama administration should be put into one building with a giant fence around it to “keep them in” on Friday’s “Red Eye” on the Fox News Channel. Johnson, when why it took so long to put spikes on the fence at the White House, stated “Obama doesn’t have his crown yet. Before they can fully fortify his kingdom, they must first give him his crown. So, then he will get his moat, he will get everything he needs to be properly protected.” She then proposed an alternative solution, “I would take it a step...

  • Optimizing Removal of Engine Sludge, pre-Oil Change

    MyBrain ^ | today | me
    There are over 100 pre-oil change treatments products for removing engine sludge. Each product endorser swears on a stack of Bibles that IT is the best --the others are all dastardly liars. But see, I trust Freepers: Is there a stand-out product, detergent, or some DIY product for gasoline-powered car engines that average Joe's can buy or formulate and run in their engine for 10 minutes right before an oil change in order to free up engine sludge...? This gasoline-powered Camry has not changed oil in over 10,000 miles, I believe. Sorry for the Vanity, I think this is almost...

    Islam has several Hadiths (saying of Muhammad) regarding Jesus praying behind the Muslim Mahdi. Today, Iran, Obama’s empowered and favored Mid East Muslim ally is excited foreseeing the coming victory against the Jews and the Christians.

FARS News, Iran’s news media stated “This banner was designed to show the final victory, led by Ibn al-Hasan Imam Mahdi”. Jesus appears dressed in blue standing humbly behind the Muslim Mahdi (Tehran) The collection of narrations related about the prophecy that...

    . Could Ted Cruz end IRS 501-C3 Church political limits with Obama-style "Prosecutorial Discretion" such as Obama used to create Executive Amnesty for Illegal Aliens ? Could (President) Ted Cruz effectively abolish the "Johnson Amendment of 1954" through "executive action" ? ====================================== POTUS Obama has claimed "Prosecutorial Discretion" to effectively create "Executive Amnesty". The New York Times and prominent Liberals have defended Obama's actions as properly within Obama's presidential "Constitutional authority". Senator Ted Cruz, in questioning U.S. Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch, asked her a couple of questions to this effect: Since Loretta Lynch and President Obama support the concept...

    Here is an Interesting Top Ten List. Did you know of these Secret Societies that existed throughout our history? Ever since recorded time, secret societies have fascinated and frightened us. Since mystery is encoded into their DNA, secret societies are easy fodder for conspiracy theorists or lazy students who seek simple explanations for history’s many catastrophes.

  • The Protestant Inquisition: "Reformation" Intolerance and Persecution

    The Protestant Inquisition: "Reformation" Intolerance and Persecution Disclaimer and statement of intent: Unfortunately, the religious "scandal score" needs to be evened up now and then, and the lesser-known "skeletons in the closet" need to be rescued from obscurity, surveyed, and exposed. I take no pleasure in "dredging up" these unsavory occurrences, but it is necessary for honest, fair historical appraisal. This does not mean that I have forsaken ecumenism, or that I wish to bash Protestants, or that I deny corresponding Catholic shortcomings. Historical facts are what they are, and most Protestants (and Catholics) are unaware of the following historical...

    As the days of America's future dwindle down to a precious few I take to my keyboard with a self imposed mission, that being to record the fall and a hope to minimize our casualties. I have long since come to terms with the reality that through America's collapse the death toll will be staggering and the misery felt by all so very hard to bear that many will break under the strain. My coming to terms with another reality is far more difficult, that being that so very few are even aware of the danger. They live comfortably in...
