    What do households on food stamps buy at the grocery store? The answer was largely a mystery until now. The United States Department of Agriculture, which oversees the $74 billion food stamp program called SNAP, has published a detailed report that provides a glimpse into the shopping cart of the typical household that receives food stamps. The findings show that the No. 1 purchases by SNAP households are soft drinks, which accounted for 5 percent of the dollars they spent on food. The category of ‘sweetened beverages,’ which includes fruit juices, energy drinks and sweetened teas, accounted for almost 10...

    Actress Sigourney Weaver offered a dark picture of the world’s future during her speech at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night. In her remarks, Weaver warned Americans that if we don’t act to combat climate change, doom is imminent. The DNC then aired a video featuring Weaver as the narrator. “It’s happening now,” Weaver says in the video. “The droughts, the record heat waves,” etc. “This is not something we’ve seen before,” she claims. “Our children are at risk.”

    The King deploys his Queen into an inescapable trap. She's "caught" plagiarizing parts of a 2008 democrat convention speech. The opponent's pawns (MSM & DNC stooges) swoop in for the kill. The King's team knows that the earlier convention speech was itself a plagiarized work. http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3450822/posts Michelle Obama Copied Alinsky In Speech Melania Trump Allegedly Plagiarized The opponent can't see that the King is setting a perfect trap to turn the pawns' shrieks of victory into a perfectly-executed judo move as they proceed to skewer themselves on their own swords.

    Her name is Va'Shona Dixon, and she's just come to the conclusion that NOT voting against Hillary Clinton would be a terrible recipe for this nation. Dixon says she's taken heat for coming forward to vote for Donald Trump, but she has to get this message out. So many people are focusing on Trump's shortcomings, and it's become a detriment to critical thinking. Dixon called out preachers in the black community who have drunk the liberal kool-aide and now are passing the "poison" to the members of the church. You need to share this video after you watch it and...
  • Ted Cruz Dies Politically With "New York Values" Rants. (Vanity)

    Ted Cruz has shot himself in the foot big time with his ill thought out ranting about hating New Yorkers. It's the same kind of rant that someone would make about "Red Necks" in any southern state, ill advised and unacceptable. The Cruz verbage is proof that Cruz will do or say anything true or untrue to gain power and control. He is really not-too-bright-in-th brain-department. He is far from Presidential material!!! For goodness sake....the fool, Ted Cruz, has no clue as to how he is being used by the GOP Establishment for "their" purposes, not his. Does anyone really...

    WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - It's the No. 1 question headed into the primary season: Does Donald Trump merely have fans, or does the national front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination have voters who will mobilize come caucus day? The definitive answer won't arrive until first-to-vote Iowa heads to the polls on Feb. 1, but interviews with dozens of voters, political operatives, party leaders and campaign volunteers in the past week paint a mixed picture of Trump's efforts to make sure they do. Even some of the billionaire real-estate mogul's most ardent backers wonder whether the political novice has...

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department, The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region...

    Where is the black leadership now that a grand jury has decided not to indict the police officer that killed Michael Brown? Where is Al Sharpton? He advertises himself as a spokesman for the best interests of black America. But he is absent. Where is Jesse Jackson, another popular media personality who says he speaks for black America? He’s missing in action, too. It breaks my heart to see televised images of violence from Ferguson, Missouri juxtaposed next to President Obama, the first black president. The president represents black power beyond anyone’s imagination just a few years ago. President Obama...

    As we all know by now having heard the details and audio on the talk shows, a group of 2,400 "teachers" and, inexplicably, a few students, gathered together to search for their "inner racist" and... surprise! they found it! We should loudly applaud any meetings of liberals to confront their inner racist. As I think Ann Coulter said once: If we can just get them to stop hating white people, it would be a good start. In any case it would have been laudable that there are efforts to teach youth to appreciate each other and overcome racism, even though...

    David Remnick, an Obama biographer and the editor of the New Yorker, said this morning on national TV that President Obama is disappointed in the world: (Remnick on Morning Joe) "The profile [of President Obama] that I published in the New Yorker was somebody that eerily, eerily seemed to be claiming himself--it was a sense of not giving up, but of deep frustration--that was the profile that I published in the New Yorker. Somebody frustrated and disappointed," said Remnick, who has proven to be deeply sympathetic to this president. "And that's what's frustrating to me sometimes about Obama is that...

    FNN Exclusive. It has been reported that a perfect correlation has been identified between drinking koolaid and mental deterioration and dysfunction. Researchers have discovered a chemical reaction of treated water in urban areas with the ingredients of koolaid. The reaction causes the koolaid to become toxic and destroys much of the mental abilities of the koolaid drinker. If the koolaid drinker is also wearing a tin foil hat, the effect is accelerated and becomes much more devastating. Scientists are speculating that the tin foil hat funnels cosmic rays into the koolaid drinkers brain which accelerates and magnifies the reaction. Several...

    At first, the numbers seemed too absurd to be true: did Mitt Romney really receive zero votes in 59 Philadelphia voting districts? Did Barack Obama really outpoll him by a combined 19,605 to 0 votes cast in these 59 districts. .......Obama was producing nearly comparable numbers in inner-cities throughout America, especially those in contested states. Worse than fraud is the process that turned nearly 20,000 black Philadelphians -- and millions of inner-city dwellers throughout the country -- into automatons. Hope does not produce this kind of regimentation. Fear does. In looking at these numbers, in fact, one can begin to...

    Is there a limit to self-delusion? And if there is, what happens when the limit is exceeded? New York Times columnist Gail Collins began her column last week as follows, "When Democrats run into each other on elevators, they exchange glances and sigh. Or make little whimpering sounds." She went on to observe that "Democrats are going bipolar. Democrats spend all their waking hours thinking about the swing states. If Wisconsin starts looking wobbly, their day is ruined." It makes you wonder what their days are going to be like if Obama loses the actual election. Liberals are angry and...

    Two Shot in Detroit after Argument Over Kool-Aid Suspects still on the loose By ANDREA ISOM Witnesses say two men in the Brightmoor neighborhood were so passionate about the way they make Kool-Aid, they started arguing with each other over who does it better. Sadly, that fight took a horrifying turn when they both pulled out guns and started firing at each other. Again, this was over Kool-Aid. They didn't hit each other, but two innocent bystanders suffered gunshot wounds in the soft drink shooting.

    As devotees of Barack Obama know all too well, qualities that made him so attractive as a candidate — an affinity for subtle arguments, a tendency to carefully weigh his options — have at times proved less useful in his role as president. That carefulness has been read as indecisiveness. The subtle arguments have sounded, to some ears, like hedging. In response, the president has simplified his rhetoric. The nuances of the 2009 Cairo speech about relations between the U.S. and the Muslim world have given way to chest thumping over killing Osama bin Laden. The sophistication of the speech...
