    Coach is Right ^ | August 29, 2015 | Jim Emerson, staff writer
    In a FOXNEWS exclusive the U.S. Army is planning to kick out Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland for shoving an Afghan pedophile who just happened to be an Afghan police commander. The alleged pedophile rapist, identified as Abdul Rahman, has not yet been charged with a crime. The American trained Rahman was said to be practicing the ancient Afghan act of “Bacha Bazi” and beating up the mother of the victim after she reported the rape. In Afghanistan, “Bacha Bazi” is a term attached to any activity that involves an adult sexually preying on a child. It includes child pornography,...

    Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota granted plaintiffs an injunction against the Environmental Protection Agency's implementation of new navigable waterways regulations that were set for immediate enforcement. The EPA's new regulations would have extended its authority over every body of water within the United States including rain runoff, temporary puddles, and spillage from yard sprinklers and driveways where home owners wash their vehicles. The Judge observed that "it seems extremely improbable that the proposed EPA authority could conceivably apply to the so-called 'navigable waterways' described. As such, the 13 states suing the EPA...

It’s hard to understand how his poll numbers keep going up when he’s so unpopular. It’s probably something like the Yogi Berra phenomenon, “Nobody goes there anymore.

    The red line is the number of private firearms in the United States, in units of 100,000.  At the end of 2013, the estimate was 363.3 million. The green line is the number of fatal firearm accidents, or unintentional firearm fatalities, in the United States.  The number in 2013 was the lowest recorded, 505. The number of fatal firearm accidents, or unintentional firearm fatalities, have been falling for more than 50 years.  At the same time, the number of firearms in the United States has been steadily rising.  The cause of fatal firearm accidents is not correlated to the...

This week at a Colorado fundraiser House Speaker John Boehner stunned donors when he referred to Texas Senator Ted Cruz as a “jackass.” During remarks at the event for Congressman Scott Tipton, Boehner said he was grateful that Cruz was often campaigning for President, which kept that “jackass” away from Capitol Hill. Of course if there is one person who is an expert on jackasses it is Boehner....

And the school's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) said the researchers were able to build the printer for less than $7,000. That compares to systems that print with just three materials at one time and can cost $250,000. The MultiFab 3D printer works by mixing together microscopic droplets of photopolymers that are then extruded through inkjet printheads similar to those in office printers. The printing process is...

    Seeking to divert attention from her admittedly unwise and likely illegal handling of classified material through her unsecured private email account, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton sought to draw a parallel between advocates of defunding Planned Parenthood and Islamic terrorists. "Both groups relegate women to second class status," Clinton claimed. "Both deny women the right to control their reproductive heath. Both would force women to be vessels for carrying unwanted children into the world. Both espouse out-of-date ideas about how the world should work." GOP presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla) characterized Clinton's claims "as twisted and malevolent an inversion...

There is no shortage of pistol manufacturers.  If the guns were sold to police or gun dealers, they would be directly competing with other...

    But given the comparison of Hamas to the Nazis, one wonders what ESPN would say. In the case of current ESPN anchor and former pitching great Curt Schilling, he might have had a more compelling case than this Palestinian author, and his comment was far less pointed. The image Schilling tweeted, deleted and paid for -- with ESPN canceling his telecast assignment for the Little League World Series -- made the comparison of Islamic supremacists to Nazis.

    If you can't work for yourself and afford health insurance, something is seriously messed up.

But even without the inherited fortune, financial independence via self-employment has always been an integral part of the American Dream. Indeed, it could be argued that financial independence is the American Dream because it gives us the freedom to say Take This Job And Shove It (Johnny Paycheck). This chart shows the self-employed as a percentage of those with jobs (all nonfarm...

    Mandates have consequences, bro The argument has been ever-present, where ObamaCare is concerned, that mandating generous benefits while forbidding insurers from considering factors like pre-existing conditions, could only result in one thing: Sky-high, jacked up premiums for everyone. It’s simple economics. You can’t artificially heighten demand by forcing everyone to buy, while also mandating a gold standard in coverage, and not see prices soar. But Barack Obama thinks the regulatory state can do what the stone-cold laws of the market cannot. So when insurers earlier this year began submitting their rate increase requests to state regulators - and the numbers...

    We now know that Vester Flanagan was a sort of mirror image of Dylann Roof: black instead of white, gay instead of straight, but like Roof a nut with a cause. Like Roof, Flanagan’s cause was race. Flanagan was race-obsessed and, like Roof, wanted to incite a race war. I agree with Hugh Hewitt that it is a mistake to pay attention to “manifestos” left behind by insane killers. It only encourages them. But if we are going to take seriously the ideology of lunatics, it must be a two-way street. Dylann Roof’s racist ideology was taken very seriously,...

    I was on the security detail at The Vertical Church on Sunday.  I noticed that Jeremy was open carrying, so I asked him if I could take a picture after the service.  He was kind enough to wait with his lovely wife until I handed off to the next volunteer.  Then we stepped outside to take the picture.  The lobby was fairly crowded.  We are having record numbers attend for August in Yuma! The can in his left hand is non-alcoholic, they are sold in the Church lobby.  The pistol is a Sig Sauer P220 in .45 ACP.  Carrying...

    WASHINGTON – The boos began as soon as Washington's mayor said she was putting more police officers on the streets in neighborhoods affected by violent crime. They didn't let up for the next 18 minutes as Democrat Muriel Bowser laid out her plans to address an increase in homicides in the nation's capital. Bowser was repeatedly heckled and interrupted by a few dozen protesters affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement during her address Thursday inside the sweltering gymnasium of a long-shuttered school in southeast Washington. Shouting "Jobs, not jails!" and "More police is not the answer!," the protesters accused...

    August 27, 2015New Anthem for Conservatives? by Claudia Working on my computer, I listen to music. While reading the posts on iOTWr, sputtering and letting my blood pressure rise because of the idiocy of the left and GOPe (like I did a few days ago), this song started playing: I Don’t Care Anymore by Phil Collins from 1983.The lyrics struck a chord in me – I don’t care anymore what you say.Both Democrats and RINOs, along with all the Social Justice Warriors, Perpetually Offended, PC Police, Perversion Purveyors, and For-Your-Own-Good Busybodies, tell us we are racist, homophobic, haters, intolerant, stupid...

    Sanger's vision of genocide through abortion is not only being carried out, but it has expanded into an evil that cases like Kermit GosnelL California State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, requested an audit of Planned Parenthood. Her request was a response to videos by a pro-life organization using undercover style reporting revealing Planned Parenthood officials discussing selling the body parts of aborted babies on the black market. She intended that the audit of California’s Planned Parenthood locations would ensure the organization is not illegally profiting from the donation of aborted baby tissue. Her request was rejected by a State...

    With all these food and nutrition programs in place, why are American citizens falling through the cracks of hunger, nutrition, and need? Why is the nation as a whole deemed obese? As liberals complain that people are going hungry and the first lady transforms the school lunch fare to “healthy” offerings nobody seems to like, the federal government is spending plenty on “domestic food assistance to provide food for the hungry and other vulnerable populations in this country.” According to the Congressional Research Service, there are many agencies that offer food assistance to the needy in this country, citizens, non-citizens,...

    Anchor Babies, Common Law, The Constitution, Eliminate birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants Once again, Donald Trump has managed to open up a robust national discussion about an issue that up to this point had been largely ignored by the political class. This time, the discussion is about so-called “birthright citizenship,” the idea that whenever a foreign national (regardless of legal status and with a very few exceptions) has a child on American soil, this child automatically becomes an American citizen from birth. This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to...
