  • For not doing their jobs, Obama defends Muslims but jails a Christian

    For not doing their jobs, Obama defends Muslims but jails a Christian In May 2013, the Obama administration sued Star Transport, Inc., a trucking company based in Morton, Illinois, because it fired Muslim truck drivers who refused to drive trucks that were carrying alcoholic beverages.However, earlier this week, the Obama administration pursued federal action against Kim Davis, a Christian court clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky, who refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, and a federal judge put her in jail.Here’s my take on both of these incidents: if someone refuses to do their job, they should be fired.

    Waco There is a declivity between the decorative stuccoed walls that mask the refrigeration and air conditioning equipment at the rear of this doomed building. Lee West stands there in the 100-degree heat, explaining where he thinks there are huge holes in what is known of the story of what happened there on May 17. He gives the names of bikers he has interviewed whom he has interviewed their recollections of being there. Suddenly, he locks eyes with the interviewer, and the thousand-yard stare says it all when he zones back in. There is a fleeting look of...

    Waco Assistant District Attorney Sterling Harmon threatened to issue a criminal trespassing warrant in the face of a public information request approved by the staff of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on Wednesday, September 2. Text messages regarding offers made to defendants charged with engaging in organized criminal activity proposing an agreement not to hold public officials, the City of Waco, or the County of McLennan responsible for legal allegations of false arrest or imprisonment are public information, according to a recent Attorney Generals ruling handed down on July 25. When prosecutors at first denied no such messages existed,...

    By my count, at least four aspiring rappers were among the 43 black homicide victims in Baltimore during the month of July in 2015; few of the homicides have a connection to gang activity, with most occurring over something as seemingly insignificant as a $3 debt. These 43 black homicide victims' (all murdered by other black people, with none involving a police officer as a suspect) - as well as the Indian immigrant gunned down by the black suspect - lives represent exactly why these neighborhoods are "impoverished." The life each of them led directly correlates to the blight, ruin,...

    Mises Institute ^ | Aug 24, 2015 | Gary Galles
    In civics and government books, how a bill becomes law shows multiple steps during which representatives consider bills before enactment. Unfortunately, such responsible deliberation, necessary to even a minimal prospect of legislation advancing the general welfare, is violated by gut and amend bills at the end of legislative sessions. As legislators race to pass bills under deadline, power brokers gut bills that have cleared most legislative hurdles, and replace them with completely different bills. Then, in the last-minute frenzy, they rush them through the last steps with minimal scrutiny (e.g., with multiple committee hearings in one room in an hour).

    Understanding Anti-Government Protests in Brazil By Julio Severo Economic crisis produces protests. In Brazil, at least, the motivation behind protests has been, as reported by Reuters, a sluggish economy, rising prices and corruption. Sadly, the protests have not been against the abortion and homosexual agenda, whose government obsession to impose it should be a top priority in the concerns of a Christian people. In the early 1980s, Brazil had one of the biggest debts in the world and the commonest word in the Brazilian news was IMF (International Monetary Fund). Prices were skyrocketing. Inflation was the daily friend of...

    Guns have been around in one form or another for 800 years. Much has changed, but the firearms industry cannot be accused of being on the leading edge of technology. The 1911 handgun is still widely used and adored, as is the AR-15. The 1911 by its name alone tells you that it has passed the century mark, and the AR-15 is more than 50 years old.

    For over a year, the press has been minimizing its coverage of the Hillary Clinton email server issue, as Congress and the conservative media have been trying to get to the truth of the matter. The facts, as shared, are simple enough: As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton chose to violate the law and route all of her email traffic, both personal and work-related, through a private email server in her home in Chappaqua, New York. This kept the emails out of the security and record retention protocols of the federal government, and potentially added an additionally severe crime if...

I refuse to belive that abortions make up only 3% of their services considering how many innocent lives they have taken since Roe vs. Wade, so I am on the lines that they mean that abortions represent 3% of their finance...

    Illinois Review ^ | August 5, 2015 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Reflections and a bit of a primer on Illinois next U.S. Senate race Parties sometimes get a bum rap. Oh, not always; theres a lot that political parties do that makes them deserve everything said about them. The Democratic Party, for example, is now so uniformly socialist that, when asked on-camera to list any differences between a modern Democrat and a socialist, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D, FL) was unable to identify any. The Republican Party isnt that easy to categorize. The GOP is the only major party to the right of the Democrats, so it basically...

    The idea of a "nuclear family"white picket fence, a kid or two, friendly golden retrieverhas been under siege for a while now. No longer do stories of step-parents or half-siblings shock us, and children being raised by parents of the same gender (so-called "pink families") are becoming increasingly common. Another new, lesser known family structure that has emerged is that of multi-parentingor raising a child with more than two legal parents. For instance, a lesbian couple and a gay couple bringing up a child together as a single family, but in separate households. That's more or less the family unit...

    American Irony ^ | 8-4-15 | The Looking Spoon
    Turns out he really does have a funny name.My wife and I can't say it in front of her without her bursting into uncontrollable laughter. The little PC cop in my brain wonders if disclosing this is some kind of racist "dog whistle" the left likes to crow about. Of course it isn't. My daughter doesn't really get the concept of race, much less actually express it. Yet, liberals will find racism in a turkey sandwich if you give them enough time to find the right "trigger" for it. The truth is I don't even think my daughterrealizes it's the...

Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that...

    Here is legislation that should be supported by every freedom-loving American. A Texas Republican congressman, Rep. Brian Babin, last Wednesday introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act, H.R. 3314, which would immediately suspend Obamas disastrous and dangerous refugee resettlement program, pending a complete review of its federal, state and local costs. Those costs are not just financial. Rep. Babin explained: It is extremely unsettling that the Obama administration would continue to expand the U.S. resettlement program at such an irresponsible pace in light of our economic and national security challenges.
