    While most of the focus is on the media's “shiny object”, Judge Roy Moore and the contentious senate race in Alabama, a very dangerous statement has been tossed out by Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. With the support of Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona and Todd Young of Indiana, Gardner has put forth the idea that if Judge Roy Moore wins the election in Alabama the senate should expel him because he does not meet the moral and ethical standards of the senate.

  • The fight brewing in Congress over how to reauthorize a key surveillance tool

    CBS News ^ | November 20th, 2017 | By REBECCA SHABAD
    Nearly a decade ago, FBI agents arrested a 24-year-old legal permanent resident from Afghanistan in the U.S. who was charged with conspiracy to bomb the New York City subway system. A tool approved by Congress in 2008 helped federal officials catch this man, Najibullah Zazi, and prevent him from carrying out his plot. That tool is set to expire Dec. 31, and a debate has been brewing among lawmakers about where a reauthorization should fit on the spectrum of balancing broad surveillance powers and protecting individuals' privacy. To unravel the 2009 plot, officials relied on the authority provided by the...

    Even casual readers of the news know that the earth is probably going to look very different in 2100, and not in a good way. [snip] The real culprit of the climate crisis is not any particular form of consumption, production or regulation but rather the very way in which we globally produce, which is for profit rather than for sustainability. So long as this order is in place, the crisis will continue and, given its progressive nature, worsen. This is a hard fact to confront. But averting our eyes from a seemingly intractable problem does not make it any...

    A Fresno State professor sued by students after interfering with their anti-abortion messages on campus says he did nothing wrong – and didn’t pay $17,000 in a settlement despite an announcement made by Alliance Defending Freedom on Thursday. “I admitted absolutely no wrongdoing, and I did not have to pay a dime,” public health professor Greg Thatcher said Friday. The costs were covered by his insurance company through the National Education Association, he said.
  • Official Says Trump Doesn't Know Who to Believe About Moore

    President Donald Trump doesn't know who to believe about sexual misconduct allegations involving Roy Moore, but isn't campaigning for his party's Senate candidate in Alabama because of "discomfort" with the claims made by a number of women, aides said Sunday. One Republican senator urged Alabama voters to reject Moore in the Dec. 12 election even if that could mean ceding the seat to a Democrat and narrowing the GOP's 52-48 Senate edge. A second GOP lawmaker suggested there was "a strong possibility" that a write-in candidate — "a proven conservative" — could win, though no name was mentioned and Moore...
  • Americans aged 18-34 most likely to oppose assault weapons ban, poll finds

    The Guardian ^ | November 19, 2017 | Lois Beckett
    Resistance to a ban on military-style assault weapons is strongest among millennials, according to a new Quinnipiac poll released this week. It’s a finding that experts said might be driven by the popularity of first-person shooter video games such as Call of Duty and increasing prominence of military-style guns in the consumer market. A large majority of Americans say they support a ban on the sale of assault weapons, a category of politically controversial guns that includes the AR-15-style rifles that have become the weapon of choice for mass shooters. The previous national federal ban on assault weapons lapsed more...
  • For Many Americans, the Media Is Now Their God

    The notion espoused by some in Christendom today that the United States was once occupied by an almost entirely God-fearing population is largely a myth. There has been and always will be a great deal of irreligious people in America, as there is in every place on this Earth. Historically speaking, the presence of a large population of atheists and agnostics is an important sign that a society is, at least to a large extent, free. Conversely, absolute uniformity of any kind is typically only accompanied by a tyrannical government. In that sense—and in that sense alone—the lack of religion...

    President Trump’s policies have decreased the Debt to GDP ratio by 1% while at the same time the Atlanta Fed announced yesterday that the 4th Quarter GDP estimates have increased by 0.2% to 3.4%.

The results of his actions are taking shape.The US GDP has increased each quarter in 2017 with the 3rd Quarter GDP increasing to $19.496 trillion – the highest GDP for any country in world history.On the other hand, the President has curtailed US spending....
  • Roy Moore: Mitch McConnell Afraid Because ‘I Will Not Be Controlled’

    Speaking in an exclusive radio interview, senatorial candidate Roy Moore charged the establishment wing of the Republican party—led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—is in cahoots with the Democratic Party to stop Moore’s campaign. Moore framed the Alabama senate race as representing a critical juncture for the future of the country, explaining that a revolution in the Senate is necessary in order for Trump to enact his populist agenda, especially on border security and repealing and replacing Obamacare. Moore charged that McConnell and establishment Republicans can only support candidates that “they could control.” “Well I have never been controlled. I...

    We know what's going on. And they know we know what's going on. This is a power struggle. This is the ruling oligarchy against the people. They cannot abide anybody THEY don't approve of getting into their precious Senate. For the Senate is their bulwark against conservatism. But their bulwark is weakening, and their minions' influence is waning. "We know who have abused us...but the time is coming when they shall lick the dust, and melt away." - Sam Adams
  • Deduction targeted by GOP used by tax filers in most states

    AP via The Sacramento Bee ^ | November 19th, 2017 | Unattributed
    ATLANTA - A popular deduction targeted in the GOP's overhaul of the tax code is used by more than a quarter of all filers in a majority of states, including many led by Republicans where some residents eventually could see their federal tax bills rise. The exact effect in every state isn't known, in part because of differences in the Senate and House versions of the bill. But the change to the deduction for state and local taxes could alter the bottom lines for millions of taxpayers who itemize. Residents in high-tax, Democratic-led states appear to be the hardest hit....
  • California’s Dianne Feinstein Tries Again to Reinstate Assault Weapons Ban

    Times of San Diego ^ | 11/18/17 | Chris Jennewein
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein has re-introduced a bill to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. Feinstein was joined by 22 other Democratic Senators in the wake of recent mass shootings in Texas and Nevada. The bill was introduced just days before the most recent mass shooting, which occurred Tuesday in Northern California. “We’re introducing an updated assault weapons ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote,”...
  • Video Of Vikings Standing In Respect To Anthem circa 1973

    In this video, you will see the Minnesota Vikings standing at attention and the fans all singing the national anthem. It was Dec 1973, and the Vikings were set to play the Cowboys for the NFC Championship. The Vikings would win and go on to their 2 Superbowl where they lost to the Miami Dolphins. Grant always had the Viings doing this, from the first day he took over as coach in 1967. As for Kaepernick, back in April, Bud Grant didn’t mince words when asked about his actions. “He’s trash,’’ said Grant. “But this is a free country....

    Today, we are increasingly faced with a contrived reality. A mirage. Images shone on a wall (television screens, cell-phone, laptops) portraying what our captors wish for us to believe (is reality). What is truth? Let me suggest that truth, increasingly, is a byproduct of force. Are any important matters reasoned true today, or are we stuck in a battle of messaging wills? In this, let me suggest, the Left are winning, as we’ve abandoned reason, and are left with, whatever message can be advanced enthusiastically enough, to run roughshod over the other. As Goebbels stated; “If you tell a lie...

    --(snip) "There is even more to the story: CDC data also show that within our nation’s cities, black Americans are, on average, eight times more likely to be killed by firearms than those who are white. The rate of death by gun homicide for black people exceeds those among whites in all 50 states, but there is tremendous variation in the magnitude of this disparity. In 2015, a black person living in Wisconsin was 26 times more likely to be fatally shot than a white person in Wisconsin. At the same time, a black person in Arizona was “only” 3.2...

    Justice Neil Gorsuch gave the most significant public address of his tenure on the nation’s highest court Thursday when he addressed the Federalist Society’s annual dinner, recently named in honor of the last man to hold his seat: Antonin Scalia. The newest Supreme Court justice took square aim at one of this year’s Federalist Society Convention’s main themes: the “administrative state,” the unelected mass of executive agency staff that actually creates most of the rules and regulations by which Americans live. Resistance of the administrative state’s growth and overreach is a driving force in the emergence of populist-nationalism and the...

Everyday that passes Judge Moore trolls Gloria Allred for her refusal to hand over the yearbook to be examined by a third party.
