    The "They Ain't Stupes", guns, bibles & religion, flyover country people, know well enough without the media megalopoly having to spoon feed them, that Hillary deliberately used private e-mail for ultra-top-secrets to evade democratic-republic controls on her nefarious doings selling out America to Chi-Coms & any & all other bidders paying a high enough price for a night in the Lincoln Bedroom. So why do we need Foggy Bottom to dole out Rodham's e-mails for partisan political delaying, why not evade our hidden enemies in Washington & just go to our overt opposition to tell us what our own government...

    There's lots of talk today about the possibility of Hillary Clinton being indicted. For the benefit of all 13 of my website followers, here's my quick take on it: Indicting Hillary quickly, or otherwise getting her to give up her candidacy, is the only chance the Dims have to win the White House. They have to get her out of the race, and soon, to get a winning ticket, i.e. Biden/Fauxcahontas on the ballot by November. (Fauxcahontas being Elizabeth Warren, who earned the name by falsely claiming to be of 1/64th or some such fraction Native American.) If they somehow...

    It looks like the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is 'under new management'. Yesterday the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom group including Ammon and Ryan Bundy, Ryan Payne, John Ritzheimer and others went to a section of the refuge five miles south of the headquarters area they have been occupying. There they used their hands and an excavator belonging to the US Fish and Wildlife Service to remove 25 to 30 yards of fence. The purpose of the fence removal was to help a local ranching family feed their 600 cattle. When the government put up the fence last year, it cut off...

    Sundance at The Conservative Tree House has written posts commenting on Ted Cruz's proselytizing as an electoral campaign strategy. Freepers have seen at least a couple of examples of this strategy recently, with threads being posted about Cruz calling on supporters to "don the full armor of God" to resist "incoming attacks" (presumably from dark forces!), or that the "Body of Christ" must be energized to gain the victory. This type of rhetoric is also heavily prominent in his campaign fund raising. One of the more epic and cringe inducing examples comes from an apparent leak by the Cruz campaign...

It looked like the big spending deal approved by the Republican controlled Senate 43-7 was being shot down in the House last Saturday when a pension reform bill was shot down in flames. But now a group of the mostly liberal Republicans in the House, mainly from the southeastern part of Pennsylvania, have stepped up....

Whether one be a left wing progressive or a squishy moderate or even a conservative, all seek an existence here in this fallen world apart from a saving relationship to Almighty God which is found in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12, Rom.1:18-32, 10:4).

    The takeaway from the House "Freedom Caucus" (Sarc) meeting with Paul Rino, uh Ryan is that with 2/3 support from those 40 or so members he is over the 218 votes needed to become Speaker of the House. Ryan, with a 58 percent Conservative Review rating (an F rating, no pun intended) looks to be on his way. I have always maintained that 95 percent of House Republicans either fake or repudiate conservatism.

With the current pope's politically liberal rhetoric, will we see fewer of these conversions? Also, it's interesting that talking about global warming has proved to be a pretty effective way to get the media to stop focusing on pedophile-coverup scandals.

    Donald Trump is at it again. He recently criticized Carly Fiorina — who’s rising in the polls in Iowa — because of her looks. He wondered out loud — when surrounded by yes-men — how anyone could ever vote for her. “Just look at that face,” he said, adding that she’s a woman and he’s not supposed to talk about it, but “come on.” He later pretended he was talking about her “demeanor,” but no sane person accepts that explanation. No, Donald, you were criticizing yet another woman because you think she’s ugly. That’s all there is to it. And...

    Our governing system no longer serves its intended purpose, to secure the blessings of liberty. Any casual read of the Constitution reveals our government’s wholesale departure from it. Congress gaffs off or assigns its duties to craft legislation, determine spending, ratify treaties, oversee the executive branch, and regulate the judicial branch. Not being content with rewriting statutes, Scotus increasingly elevates itself above God; its Obergefell v. Hodges ruling is only the latest outrage among many. Executive branch agencies reflect the will of one man, Obama, and not congressional statutes. In response, there is a small but growing minority of Americans...

The fan's puke plummeted multiple storeys before appearing to land on unsuspecting fans seated below. After one fan lost his lunch, the Red Sox went on to lose 9-2 to the visiting Chicago White Sox. Considering some stadium dustups happen as a result of spilt beer, we're guessing this didn't go...

    Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was apart of a larger more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government wouldn’t...

This incident IS an act of domestic terrorism, regardless of how Washington spins it, regardless of what nationality, color, creed, or otherwise the shooter was. This was a...

    Once again, KFC has shown how far it is willing to go to incorporate chicken into everything we eat.

Yes, that's right. KFC's signature chicken is now a pizza crust. This is not the company's first foray into hybrid foods. In 2010, KFC offered the Double Down sandwich, a bacon and cheese sandwich with two pieces of fried chicken as the bread. And let's not forget earlier this year,...
