    The New Jersey Turnpike Authority wants a pizza shop in the Florida Keys to pay a big toll for using a logo similar to the Garden State Parkway's green and yellow signs. The agency sued Jersey Boardwalk Pizza Tuesday in federal court over the logo it uses for its two pizza shops and on merchandise sold online. It said in the suit that the company is trying to trade upon the fame of the Garden State Parkway logo to attract customers and potential franchisees. JoyAnn Kenny, a lawyer with the Red Bank-based firm of Marks & Klein LLP, which represents...

    With all the horrible news for Christians in Iraq and elsewhere, there is one bright spot. While we slept, Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim arrived in Italy. As the UK Telegraph reports, the 27-year-old woman, who was spared a death sentence for apostasy in June for refusing to renounce Christianity, landed in Rome where she is to meet Pope Francis before traveling to the U.S. I know she will appreciate all of you who prayed for her and her children and her perseverance through an almost year long-ordeal. Ibrahim and her family were flown to Italy in a government aircraft to...
  • Liberals Go Crazy After a “Straight White Guy” Festival is Planned

    07/24/2014 6:38:04 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 18 replies
    Liberals seem to think on a different wavelength than the rest of humanity, especially when it comes to the hypocrisy in their “rage” over social issues, gay marriage in particular. “Gay Pride” protests are held on a weekly, possibly daily, basis all around the country, in celebration of someone’s activities that should largely be a private matter behind closed doors. These rallies encourage homosexuals to be proud of their sexual orientation, to flaunt it out in the open, and otherwise revel in it as the fullness of their identity, which seems demeaning as these individuals are certainly more than just...

    "He has been gasping for more than an hour," lawyers said in an emergency appeal to halt the botched execution of Arizona inmate Joseph Rudolph Wood yesterday. "He is still alive." As the hour mark passed, Wood's lawyers filed an appeal to a district court and even called Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the New York Times reports. Kennedy declined to halt the execution, while the district court didn't respond until after Wood had died, almost two hours into a process that usually takes around 10 minutes. Gov. Jan Brewer has ordered an investigation into the execution of the 55-year-old...

    Today on Slate’s feminist XX blog, there was a headline that read: Even if She Loses in Texas, Wendy Davis Is a Win for America. Seriously? So, a Texas State Senator, who filibustered a bill that would ban abortions twenty-weeks into a pregnancy last summer, is a “win for America?” Jessica Grose, who wrote the article, added: Now, for all the support Davis’ campaign has received from fellow Democrats in Washington and elsewhere—former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm called her “Joan of Arc, standing up there for women all across the country”—she’s still running for governor of a deeply red state....

    From day one, angry atheists have made outlandish claims about the Ground Zero Cross – the two intersecting steal beams in the shape of a cross that was found in the wreckage of the World Trade Center following 9/11. Not only have they made these absurd claims in public (calling it “offensive and repugnant”), they’ve made them in federal court. Now a federal appeals court is calling them out and demanding they provide a rational explanation as to how their “offense” constitutes a constitutional claim. When the American Atheists first filed their lawsuit in state court seeking to have the...

    About 125 family and friends of Jerry Brown marched down Fifth Avenue in the rain Sunday afternoon to protest after the 41-year-old was fatally shot last week by Pasco County sheriff’s detectives. Detectives said they shot Brown on Tuesday during an undercover drug deal near Big Ben Tires, 4128 Gall Blvd., where Brown was employed. The sheriff’s office said detectives were arresting Brown, a Lakeland resident, for selling prescription drugs. Brown was later found to be unarmed, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said. On Sunday, protesters chanted “Justice for Jerry” as they walked and carried signs. Some wore T-shirts printed...

    Megyn Kelly responded to the Hobby Lobby freakout by liberal woman’s activist Sandra Fluke, by saying this is not a “war on women” as Fluke says it is. “This is about the attempted war on the religious right.” Fluke is intentionally publicizing false facts about the result of the Hobby Lobby decision to cause a stir.

In doing so, they stopped his illegal alien express in its tracks, and inspired other communities to follow suit. A crowd of 200 to 300 people in downtown Murrieta, California surrounded three buses carrying illegal aliens Tuesday afternoon in a tense standoff, causing the buses to turn around before they reached a Border Patrol station in the Riverside County city. Waving Americans flags and protest signs, the crowd refused to give way when the buses arrived with some...

    This Heritage event on Benghazi has gotten a lot of press over the last day or two, with the left claiming the event turned ‘ugly‘ and that the Muslim woman was ‘pounced on’ and ‘bullied’ by members of the panel. But after watching it myself, that characterization couldn’t be more wrong. In fact Brigitte Gabriel’s answer to this Muslim woman is perhaps the best answer I’ve ever heard to the ‘peaceful Muslims’ question.

    (Reuters) - A prominent lawyer and leader of the Mississippi Tea Party, who was arrested in connection with photos posted online of U.S. Senator Thad Cochran's bedridden wife, died on Friday of an apparent suicide, the man’s attorney said. Mark Mayfield, 57, was a founding member of the state's Tea Party and had served as its vice chairman, the organization said. "This is a terrible tragedy that shouldn’t have happened," Mayfield's lawyer and brother-in-law, John Reeves, told Reuters. Mayfield was one of three men accused in May of conspiring with a blogger to illicitly take photos of Cochran's wife, who...

    Two top student government leaders at the University of Las Vegas are requesting Hillary Clinton return the "outrageous" $225,000 speaking fee she reportedly will receive for an upcoming speech at the school in October. In a video circulated by the national Republican Party Friday, Elias Benjelloun, the UNLV student body president, and Daniel Waqar, the student government's public relations director, slammed the university's foundation for paying Clinton so much for the event.

    NAGS HEAD, N.C. — The dangers of climate change were revealed to Willo Kelly in a government conference room in the summer of 2011. By the end of the century, state officials said, the ocean would be 39 inches higher and her home on the Outer Banks would be swamped. The state had detailed maps to illustrate this claim and was developing a Web site where people could check by street address to see if their property was doomed. There was no talk of salvation, no plan to hold back the tide. The 39-inch forecast was “a death sentence,” Kelly...

    President Obama is emphasizing global warming ahead of the November elections, but a new poll suggests he faces an uphill climb. According to a Pew Research Center poll, 35 percent of Americans say there is not enough solid evidence to suggest mankind is warming the earth while another 18 percent says the world has warmed due to “natural patterns” and not human activity. That’s a 53 percent majority against the president’s position. Of the 35 percent who cite lacking evidence for their disbelief, half say it’s because man-made global warming is “just not happening”. The other half say that we...

    When President Obama announced an unprecedented effort by the EPA to strong-arm states into adopting cap-and-trade, he made the announcement not by focusing on the benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but rather on the so-called co-benefits that closing coal plants will have on particulate matter, which is already tightly regulated. These purported co-benefits are based on two secret studies that have never been publicly validated. Amazingly, the architect of this co-benefits strategy is a long-time EPA staffer named John Beale, now known as federal inmate number 33005-016 and locked up for fraud at Cumberland Federal Correctional Institution.

Sean Patrick Maloney on Tuesday by beating her successor in an Independence Party primary, giving her a third ballot line for their general election fight in November. Unofficial results showed the Republican about 80 votes ahead in the low-turnout contest, in which around 1,400 Independence Party voters went to the polls – around 6 percent of those enrolled in the 18th Congressional District, which includes all of Orange and Putnam counties and parts of Westchester and Dutchess. The state Board of Elections had Hayworth ahead, 729-649.

Thought control is the goal. Case in point: Remember Jack Phillips, the Christian baker in Colorado? He exercised his First Amendment religious rights and politely declined...

The intention of Kijera’s trip was to push back on the portrayal of black men as “savages” in the media. Her hope was that she would eliminate misconceptions and push back against common views imposed by “the man.” However, Kijera’s trip took a turn for the worse when one of the men...

    Chester Nez, the last original Navajo Code Talker, has passed away in his Albuquerque home. Nez was recruited with 28 other Native Americans by the U.S. Marines to create a code the Japanese couldn't crack during World War II. Nez went into kidney failure Wednesday morning. He was 93. "Many people have met him," said Judy Avila, a friend and author of Nez's memoir. "When you meet him, you're charmed by him." He was the last living member of the group. "There were a lot of people and naysayers who said, 'How can these young Navajo men help us?' But...

    On a recent evening, more than 300 homeowners who are worried about their rising property tax bills filled First Unitarian Universalist Church in North Austin for a town hall meeting. If something doesn’t change, many said, they will soon be priced out of their homes. Two nights later, a similar discussion played out in South Austin, where homeowners gathered at Grace United Methodist Church in Travis Heights to talk about what can be done to slow escalating residential tax values. “I’m at the breaking point,” said Gretchen Gardner, an Austin artist who bought a 1930s bungalow in the Bouldin neighborhood...
  • Bloomberg’s Surprising Harvard Commencement Address Attacks Campus Ideologues

    udos to Ex-Mayor Mike, whose Harvard commencement address called for inclusion of more conservatives in higher education. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg shocked the conscience of many in academia (and liberal newsrooms) across America when he spoke out against the scarcity of conservative voices in faculty lounges in our leading institutions of higher education. Bloomberg’s speech resonated strongly with me as I’ve taught at two of the schools he mentioned in his remarks—my alma mater, Haverford College, as well as the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where I served as a resident fellow in...

    For years, the conglomerate paid off Colombian militias. So it’s no wonder the company is now furiously lobbying to stop a bill that would make it easier to sue terror financiers. Washington makes for strange alliances—and even stranger enemies. But this could wind up being the oddest confrontation of all. Chiquita, the world’s largest banana producer, is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to block a 9/11 victims’ bill. And outraged supporters of the legislation accuse a senior lawmaker, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, of working with the fruit kings to stand in their way. According to Congressional lobbying disclosures, Chiquita has...

    Former Congressman Allen West joined AM Tampa Bay Wednesday June 4, 2014 to talk about the Bergdahl swap. “I think that this is very serious when the president of the United States of America decides to release the enemy – prisoners – back to their previous state of nefarious actions,” West said. Host Tedd Webb asked West if he thought this was a political move that went awry to get the VA scandal off the front pages…? West said, “Absolutely, I mean you hit the nail on the head. Because the whole thing coming out Saturday, rose garden event, and...
  • Robertson v. Bergdahl: Liberals and Two Bearded Guys

    The Bergdahl affair is proving to be very enlightening. Take for instance the liberal hypocrisy concerning two guys with beards, both of whom have religious affiliations with credos that have strong opinions concerning homosexuality. One of the two bearded fellows is Bob Bergdahl, father of recently-released POW Bowe Bergdahl. Besides his whiskers, Bob seems to proudly exhibit a strong affinity for Islam, a religion that tolerates the mistreatment of women, children, and homosexuals, and has a violent faction that has killed thousands of innocent Americans. Bob is currently one of the two top recipients of the left’s politically-correct attention, protection,...

    How’s this for irony … V. Stiviano said a bunch of racist stuff about black people — and TMZ Sports has the footage. Among the lowlights … – “I don’t understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it.”

    Four years after endorsing Andrew Cuomo for governor, the Working Families Party says it may support another candidate this year. The liberal group fears Cuomo's agenda has drifted too far to the right. So now it's deciding whether to back another candidate, who would run to Cuomo's left. "I'm very proud of the record that I have," Cuomo said. "I think we have progressive accomplishments in this state that resonated across the nation and I believe that's undeniable." A recent poll by Quinnipiac University showed Cuomo leading his Republican opponent, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, by a 57 to 28...
