    Critics 'should neither be allowed nor enabled' to speak ill of Hillary. Political journalists are going to love the Hillary Clinton presidency. Judging by the way Team Clinton has responded to a series of books that are critical of the elderly homeowner and her philandering husband, it will be a real treat to cover them in the White House (again). According to Politico, for example, public relations representatives for the Clinton family have issued a joint statement condemning the recent publication of “trashy” books by Ed Klein, Daniel Halper, and Ronald Kessler, all of which reflect less than favorably...

    World War II Database ^ | August 22, 2010 | John Radzilowski
    In 1944, Poland’s political situation grew increasingly precarious as Soviet forces moved into eastern Poland. In the West, unbeknownst to the Poles, the Allies had agreed to give Joseph Stalin a free hand in eastern Europe after the war. In Poland itself, the brutality of the German occupation continued unabated, with thousands dying every day in camps, summary executions and street round ups. Polish resistance forces were unified under the aegis of the Armia Krajowa, or Home Army (AK, pronounced “Ahh-Kah”). (The only exceptions were the miniscule Communist movement and a small group on the right, the ONR.) This underground...

    Here's a scary sociological experiment: If Obama announced tomorrow he was temporarily removing Republicans/Conservatives from Congress and the Courts to make the necessary changes to better America in the name of the "common good", what percentage of his party would oppose such a move? Being the rabid left and media actually believes the ends justify the means, would it be under 30%? Disturbing to say the least. If Obama said he was permanently baring Republicans from Government to grant Amnesty, fully implement Obamacare and gun control, address Global Warming, end Capitalism, amend the Constitution, and would subsequently place any and...

Terry died in a shootout in 2010 after confronting some border bandits south of Tucson. Soto-Barraza was caught in Mexico in September 2013. He is charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, attempted interference with commerce by robbery, use and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence...

    Only two things are certain in life: death and taxes. Well, not exactly. I'm always dumbfounded when the Tea Party – basically the old conservative wing of the Republican Party – is routinely and viscously slandered as racists, extremists, and blamed for every misfortune or injustice to befall America. What is conveniently concealed or transposed by puppets of propaganda, premeditated with extreme prejudice I might add, is that our members are nothing more than staunch Reaganites: loyal to a man who is largely considered one of the greatest Presidents in American history by Republicans, Independents and moderate Democrats alike. Yet,...

    The National Report, a parody website that typically does a very good job hiding the fact that its stories are fake, put one over on Gawker’s Jezebel site on Thursday. Jezebel’s Erin Gloria Ryan posted an article under the headline “Sarah Palin Interviews Guy Who Calls the President ‘Nigger Hitler’” that was based entirely on the fake story. According to the fake National Report account: Less than five hours after the launch of The Sarah Palin Channel, the fledgling online subscription-based network has landed itself in a major controversy, after a person being interviewed by Palin herself repeatedly referred to...

    Reports are beginning to surface that tell a horrifying story of a near miss for the state of Israel.

The JTA reported: Hamas planned to use the tunnels it dug from Gaza to Israel to execute a massive attack on southern Israel, an Israeli newspaper reported, citing unnamed Israeli security sources. Under the plan detailed Friday by the Hebrew-language Maariv daily, Hamas planned to send terrorists through the more than 30 tunnels uncovered by Israeli...

He also says that because of his incurred injuries during the attempted robbery, he wants to be compensated. He also claims in his suit that after employees subdued him, two local police officers improperly...

    In the 1930’s and 1940’s the German Nazi Party coined the phrase “Lebensraum” to describe their doctrine that the German people needed more room to expand and grow. They needed more room in which to work and live. In the German language they needed more "raum tzu arbeit und leben". Hence the term "Lebensraum" came to be used to describe their yearnings for world-wide domination. They believed it was their eventual destiny to re-populate the lands of other countries around them, especially those in eastern Europe and Russia. In practice however they really weren’t too picky about whose country they...

    How long has Congress been mulling over some sort of amnesty plan for illegal immigrants? A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

    The word stunned might best describe how U.S. citizens, particularly blacks, felt after hearing that a six-member jury, following two days of deliberation in a Florida courthouse last July, found George Zimmerman not guilty in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. One year later, with increased cases in which defendants have used the “stand your ground” law to avoid prosecution, civil rights leaders and activists have ramped up efforts to challenge a criminal justice system that often treats blacks and women as second-class citizens. “Blacks seeking justice must continue with protests, pressure and patience,” said Benjamin Crump, the civil...

    A number of blogs have reported how Obama yelled at Binyamin Netanyahu on the phone on Sunday.  I have to question why Obama is so upset at Israel’s current operation to eliminate terror tunnels, when he usually stays so calm. When he speaks with world leaders like Vladimir Putin, French PM Hollande, and British PM David Cameron, Obama doesn’t yell.  And when those leaders speak with Netanyahu, they don’t presume to yell at him.  Only Barack Hussein Obama yells at Netanyahu, scolding him like a schoolmaster to a student. What possible motivation could Obama have? Back in 2008, candidate then-Senator Obama had lots of...

He has worked in strategic planning. On Saturday, an embarrassed United States witnessed the full realization of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s failure in Libya. Remembering her husband’s failure to halt a 1990s Rwandan genocide — and informed by her coming presidential aspirations — Clinton advised President Barack Obama to enter the United States into an untenable situation. He listened; she left; and he failed.

    After the so-called death of the Occupy movement, political activism is making a comeback in Sacramento. In June and July, law enforcement arrested 47 protesters over 12 days at the state Capitol. Those hauled away were members of the newly formed 99Rise movement. They peacefully remained in the building under the rotunda after curfew, in solidarity with their goal of getting big money out of politics. That hasn’t happened yet, of course, but the protesters made headlines by lobbying a few bills—and actually getting two passed. Some of these activists marched nearly 500 miles from Los Angeles to Sacramento, and...

The publication of an extremely biased one-sided analysis of such a complex situation is outrageous and full of lies.

    Trayvon Martin never lived to see his 18th birthday, but the slain Florida teenager is slowly becoming one of the most important figures in the modern civil rights era. Martin was walking to his home in a gated Florida neighborhood in 2012 when neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman mistook him for a burglar. After a brief struggle, Zimmerman shot and killed Martin, an act that a jury later deemed justified. The case aroused racial tensions and immediately became a cause celebre among activists who believed that police did not follow through on charging Zimmerman simply because Martin was a...

Once the decision was made they opted to make a huge leap and configure their capabilities to allow ships carrying up to 2 ½ times the containers that have been in use for the past several years. The nation of Panama did not make this move in secret. The idea was unveiled in early 2006 and finally voted on in a referendum held on Oct 22, 2006. The idea of widening the shipping lanes passed 77% to 22%....

    (GRAPHIC-AT-LINK)The Los Angeles Times leads Thursday with a story entitled: "Gaza's dilemma: Deadly war or suffocating Israeli embargo." According to the story, Palestinians in Gaza are left with no choice but to wage war, because if they do not fire rockets at Israeli civilians, they must accept an Israeli [sic] "embargo." The article omits the obvious point that if Hamas would stop trying to kill Israelis, neither the embargo nor the war itself would be necessary. The authors, Alexandra Zavis and Batsheva Sobelman, accept that Hamas started the war--and even suggest that most Palestinians in Gaza support it, though there...
  • It was Putin’s missile? [the CIA, neocons, NATO, and corporate media want you to think so]

    Here’s the spin war verdict: the current Malaysian Airlines tragedy – the second in four months – is “terrorism” perpetrated by “pro-Russian separatists” armed by Russia and Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up. Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary ‘We came, we saw, he died’ Clinton said so. Because crazy Samantha ‘R2P’ Power said so – thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post. Because Anglo-American corporate media – from CNN to Fox (who tried to buy Time Warner, which owns CNN) – said so....
  • Obama’s plan is to force a wedge between actual Christians and their Church leaders

    When Barack Obama came out, as it were, for Gay “marriage” he forced adherent Black Christians to eat a plate of dirt. On the one hand they are strongly anti-Gay which certainly extends to being furiously anti-Gay “marriage;” and on the other hand besides worshiping God they worship Barack Obama. They were briefly caught in a dilemma: should they obey God or Obama? Of course God was forced to wait outside of the polling places and Blacks voted for their Messiah anyway. They knuckled under and accepted the plate of dirt. Having seen this formula work with Black Christians, Obama...

    One month ago (in June), the topic of immigration was at 5%. Today? It’s 17%. According to a Gallup poll released a few days ago, immigration has surged to the top of the list as “the Most Important U.S. Problem”. This replaces “dissatisfaction with government” (16%).

    I am a huge fan of Gov. Sarah Palin. No, I don’t think she should be president (or vice-president) but she certainly could not have done worse than the present occupants of those two offices. My enthusiasm for Ms. Palin is based on her ability to give relentless and unapologetic voice to a vast swath of the populace generally ignored by a press corps that believes that all wisdom is found within a sixty mile swath surrounding Washington, D.C. And even more so because of her ability to drive liberals crazy – and I mean stark raving, red-in-the-face, frothing-at-the-mouth, snot-slobbering,...

    Via RCP, it’s Jorge Ramos, a guy so deep in the tank for illegal immigration that even other members of America’s pro-amnesty media are known to grumble about it. The most revealing thing about this clip is how little his argument depends on the particular hardships being suffered by kids in Central America. They face gangs, drugs, and violence if they’re sent back, he allows, but there’s no sense that this is some unique crisis requiring a more forgiving policy than might otherwise be advisable. He’s making a straight-up argument, essentially, that if a kid makes it across the border,...

    Trust me, I triple checked that I wasn’t reading The Onion when I saw this article come across my Facebook timeline. First off, besides the content of the article (which we’ll get to), I can almost write an entire article on the image that was included with the post. The image is of a bunch of toy model guns, including a “Pulse Rifle”, you know a completely science fiction based firearm that doesn’t exist, even a little bit. The image is accompanied by a caption that reads “These guns can be purchased anywhere in Georgia and carried into a church,...
  • China meat scandal spreads to Japan in Chicken McNuggets

    Shanghai (AFP) - A scandal involving expired meat sold by a China unit of US food supplier OSI Group spread to Japan Tuesday, as McDonald's confirmed that the now shut factory provided Chicken McNuggets to its restaurants. Shanghai authorities on Sunday shut an OSI plant -- a supplier to McDonald's and KFC in China -- for mixing out-of-date meat with fresh product, re-labelling expired goods and other quality problems following an investigative report by a local television station. A Tokyo-based spokesman for McDonald's Japan told AFP the restaurant chain had sourced about 20 percent of its McNuggets from the Shanghai...

    The Incidental Economist ^ | July 22, 2014 | Nicholas Bagley
    In a major setback for the Affordable Care Act, the D.C. Circuit just released a fractured opinion invalidating the IRS’s rule extending tax credits to federally facilitated exchanges. The case, Halbig v. Sebelius, centers on the portion of the ACA governing the calculation of tax credits. The statute specifies that tax credits are available to most people who purchase a health plan “through an Exchange established by the State under 1311.” (See my earlier posts for a more detailed recap.) About two-thirds of the states, however, declined to establish exchanges. In those states, the federal government stepped in and established...
  • Why would PPP ask McDaniel voters if they would support CSA in 2nd Civil War?

    Coach is Right ^ | 7/22/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Why would an honest polling company ask Chris McDaniel’s supporters if they favored a second Civil War and if so, which side they would support? These are the questions one has to ask after reading Public Policy Polling’s (PPP) report on its survey of Mississippi voters on the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Republican Thad Cochran and Democrat challenger Travis Childers. What was the purpose of these questions? Who paid them to ask these questions and why? Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a Democrat polling firm based in Raleigh North Carolina. Thad Cochran’s team has strong connections to Democrats; some...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The British newspapers, like the British government, are pinning the blame for the Malaysian Airlines disaster on Putin. Most Americans, whether Democrats or Republicans, would see things the way these UK headlines do: "Putin is a pariah – he must be treated as such" "Britain and America implicate Russia in Flight MH17 missile attack" "Two British families killed by 'Putin the terrorist'" And over a column written by Prime Minister David Cameron, this headline: "This is an outrage made in Moscow" However, some well-informed conservatives in Britain are pointing the finger for the war in Ukraine not at Putin, but...
