    Black Rifle Coffee Company, founded by veteran Evan Hafer, is responding to Starbuck's CEO Howard Schultz' pledge to hire 10,000 refugees. Schultz' announcement came last weekend in response to President Trump's recent executive order temporarily barring refugees and visa holders from seven terror ridden countries. "We want to shift the conversation away from foreign policy to domestic issues that hit closer to home. We need to keep in mind that the four things we care about at BRCC are Family, Business, Veterans and country," the company posted on its Instagram page. "And when we say 'country', the taxpayers. Everyone else...

    Following yesterday's Inauguration, half a million American women put on their pink "pussyhats" and marched on Washington, D.C., leaving an estimated 2.5 million starving, meowing cats in their homes completely unattended and deprived of their scheduled mandatory hugs and prolonged belly rubs. Organized by Planned Parenthood, Council for American-Islamic Relations, the Communist Party, and other progressive movements, American women came to Donald Trump's doorstep to express their anger, fury, indignation, and outrage over the fact that they can't name a single right that men have and women don't. Another reason to be enraged was, of course, that while they were...
  • Trump has committed the most revolutionary act I've seen in 45 years

    Within four hours of becoming president of the United States, Donald Trump signed an executive order intended to limit immediately the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) in ways that are revolutionary. With the stroke of a pen, the president assaulted the heart of the law that was the domestic centerpiece of his predecessor’s administration. How did this happen? How can a U.S. president, who took an oath to enforce the laws faithfully, gut one of them merely because he disagrees with it? Here is the back story. When ObamaCare went through Congress in 2010, all...

    A taxpayer-funded political science professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has concluded that political conditions in North Carolina are comparable to political conditions in totalitarian nations such as Cuba, Venezuela and Iran because Republicans are too politically successful. The professor, Andrew Reynolds, aired his 936-word grievance last week in The News & Observer, a newspaper out of Raleigh. North Carolina “can no longer be classified as a full democracy,” Reynolds declares, because the statewide Republican Party has been too successful at winning the state’s winner-take-all elections. The winner-take-all system — which is excessively common throughout the...

    Members of the Hell's Angels motorcycle club went to Lee Circle and surrounded the Robert E. Lee monument Thursday. The development came after New Orleans and other American cities were roiled by a wave of vandalism by those lashing out after the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States. Protesters took to the streets again later that night, but in a much more peaceful manner.New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison held a press conference hours earlier to detail the NOPD strategy for handling those protests.

    Animal behaviorist Dr. Kale Crumlin didn't know how close he was to the truth when a few months ago he first shared his observations with a small circle of colleagues in a paper titled, "The Behavior and Habits of Hillary Clinton," in which he compared the former First Lady to the dominant female in a clan of spotted hyenas, also known as laughing hyenas. "The cackle, the facial expressions, and the predisposition to dominate males were the first behavioral clues," wrote Dr. Crumlin, referring to a known scientific fact that spotted hyena society is matriarchal; females are larger than males...

    It takes 2,590 military personnel, government civilians and full-time equivalent contractors and $70 million per year to run the world’s largest and most expensive military aircraft program, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. That’s according to the US Defense Department's F-35 chief Lt Gen Christopher Bogdan, who disclosed the staff count and annual budget of the F-35 Joint Program Office (JPO) at a congressional hearing about the $379 billion fighter procurement this week. The numbers include the two F-35 test forces located Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland and Edwards AFB in California. Headquartered near the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia,...

    Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.) has never been shy about expressing his loathing for Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), and he was at it again Tuesday on Morning Joe, saying he hated Cruz and would take cyanide if he become the Republican nominee. Co-host Willie Geist read out a quote from King in which he said any New Yorkers who thought of voting for Cruz in Tuesday’s primary should “have their head examined.” “What happens tonight on the Republican side? How big does Donald Trump win?” Geist asked. “First of all, in case anybody is confused, I am not endorsing...

    Officials are finally admitting the F-35 fighter has turned into a nightmare—but it’s too late to stop the $400 billion program now. Way back in the early 2000s, the U.S. military had a dream. To develop a new “universal” jet fighter that could do, well, pretty much everything that the military asks its different fighters to do. But the dream of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter turned into a nightmare. The program is six years behind schedule and tens of billions of dollars over budget. And now, 16 years after the JSF prototypes took off for their first flights, top...
  • Supreme Court Puts Obama's Clean Power Plan on Hold

    A divided Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to halt enforcement of President Barack Obama's sweeping plan to address climate change until after legal challenges are resolved. The surprising move is a blow to the administration and a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations "an unprecedented power grab." By temporarily freezing the rule the high court's order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold. The court's four liberal justices said they would have denied the request....

    A Black Lives Matter activist killed himself on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse, say the authorities. State Highway Patrol officials tell the Columbus Dispatch that MarShawn M. McCarrel II, 23, shot himself outside the front door of the Statehouse on Monday evening. Lt. Craig Cvetan says McCarrel , who was from the Columbus suburb of Franklin Township, died at the scene. He was not a state employee. Cvetan says it's unclear why McCarrel killed himself. 'We don't have any evidence to know the reason why he did it,' Cvetan said. Authorities say nobody saw the shooting, but the man...

    Political Insider ^ | Summer 2015 ? | Unknown
    Retired 4-Star U.S. Navy Admiral James A. "Ace" Lyons was recently at the National Press Club. And his claims are shocking. It appears that the Obama Regime has been FULLY infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood terrorism front group on every level. And that pro-radical Islam group is also in every level of U.S. security agencies. Lyons went on to say that "the transformation of America has been in full swing ever since 2008." And when Obama campaigned on a platform to "fundamentally transform America," Obama has done exactly that! In addition Lyons made the important point that there is no...

    The star of one of the nation’s most popular reality television shows just made Sen. Ted Cruz a happy, happy, happy presidential candidate. Duck Commander Phil Robertson announced Wednesday that he has endorsed Cruz for the White House, Fox News has learned.“Ted Cruz is my man, I’m voting for him,” Robertson said. Robertson, the star of "Duck Dynasty," took Cruz hunting on Monday and they sealed the deal in a duck blind. “My qualifications for president of the United States are rather narrow: Is he or she Godly, does he or she love us, can he or she do the...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump pledged to "tax Wall Street" as he sought to use a severe stock market selloff to plant new seeds of fear among voters during a campaign rally Saturday in Iowa. At times, the real estate mogul sounded more like Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders, a constant critic of Wall Street, than a billionaire candidate running for the Republican presidential nomination. "There's a bubble," Trump told his audience in Ottumwa, southeastern Iowa, noting the nation's high level of debt. "You see the stock market is starting to, you know, see what's going on," he said....
  • Iran Nuclear Deal Isn't A Bad Deal After All; It's No Deal

    Nuclear Charade: The Obama administration admits to Congress that its nuclear pact with Iran has not been signed by the Iranian regime and has no legal force. Obama's "tough diplomacy" is puff diplomacy. The White House's latest updated "Strategy for American Innovation" left one innovation out: diplomatic pacts with other countries that don't have to be signed. Maybe President Obama will say that it saves the taxpayers money, since it eliminates signing ceremonies in lavish locales. Going back to when, as a candidate, he expressed a willingness to talk directly with Iran, then through months of negotiations on its nuclear...

    Welcome to the U.S. (unisex) Navy. Sailors will soon be issued “Dixie Cup” hats and gender-neutral uniforms to satisfy Navy Secretary Ray Mabus’ demands. A preview of the new uniforms was revealed Monday. “Having service members don the same headgear is symbolic of a Navy that is gender-blind,” Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen told Military Times on Monday. “We have been working hard to design covers and uniforms that improve uniformity across the force as well as improve the function and fit of sailors’ uniforms according to Mabus’ plan for uniform and cover redesign.” The new hat will be...

    It's been a while since we checked in on the F-35, the Flying Swiss Army Knife, which may be a floor wax or a dessert topping, but which sure as hell isn't an viable aircraft, but is one of the epic money pits of all time, even by Pentagon standards, which are higher than the plane thus far has been able to get off the ground. How are things going, anyway? For 10 days in May off the coast of Virginia, a half dozen F-35 fighter jets tested their capabilities under what military officials called real world combat conditions. The...

    The tests used by the military on the latest breed of stealth jet, which was declared to be 'ready for combat' this spring, have been called into question by the Pentagon. The F-35, which is one of the most highly anticipated advancements in military history has had more than its fair share of problems. Now according to a report seen by the Washington Post, a top weapons tester at the Pentagon has declared the testing exercise to be 'so flawed that it 'was not an operational test … in either a formal or informal sense of the term.' The report...

    Hillary Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal had nothing but bad things to say about incoming House Speaker John Boehner on the day Republicans won back the House from Democrats in 2010, according to new emails released by the State Department late Monday. "Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican Conference," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "They are repelled by his personal behavior." "He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle," he added. According to dictionary.com, "louche" means "dubious, shady, disreputable." "He is not Gingrich, the natural leader of a 'revolution,' riding the...
