    Fox News has decided that Mike Huckabee should not be the Republican nominee, so Chris Wallace went on the attack against Huckabee’s flat tax plan on Fox News Sunday. Video: (VIDEO-AT-LINK)CHRIS WALLACE: You want to abolish the income tax. You want to abolish the IRS and create a fair tax, which as you say is a national sales tax, but critics say the problem with that is that it’s too regressive. The Tax Policy Center said this, that “the average rate for the lowest income group would exceed 33% while the average rate for the top group would fall to...

    In April and May 2004, the 4th Marines—the very same units that stormed the beach at Iwo Jima—took heavy losses while engaging insurgents loyal to Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party in heavy fighting for the city of Ramadi. USA Today posted this report, On April 6, Lance Cpl. Deshon Otey, 24, of Hardin, Ky., was the sole survivor of an attack on his Humvee that killed seven of his comrades in Echo Company. His only wounds were nightmares, Otey said later. "I always see these guys with turbans. They come up and just start slaughtering all of us," he said. A...

Obama’s so-called JV team just made military forces abandoned the capital of Iraq’s largest province handing a defeat to team Obama’s strategy to defeat the extremist group. Not stopping to celebrate victory, ISIS forces are heading east to attack retreating Iraqi forces. While Iraq talks about gathering pro-government forces the Islamic State is heading to Fallujah to set up a launching point for Baghdad.

"It’s reminiscent of eugenics," she explained. ...Citing a "whistleblower," Ms. McKinney explained, "The omitted data suggested," she said, "that African American males who received the MMR (that’s mumps, measles and rubella) vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism.

    There are two bills in the Texas legislature to reform the State's knife laws.  HB 905 adds knives to the state preemption law for firearms.  This will prevent people from unknowingly becoming criminals for local ordinances that they are unaware of.   The local ordiances are infamous for being selectively enforced. The second bill, HB 3884 decriminalizes arms that are clearly protected under the second amendment, highly desired knives such as Bowie knives, daggers, swords, and spears.  Strange as it may seem, these knives were made illegal to carry during reconstruction in the 1870's, and the law is still on...

    Friday, May 22, 2015 De-Islamization is the Only Way to Fight ISIS Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Obama can’t defeat ISIS with soft power, though ISIS could beat him with soft power assuming its Caliph ever decided to agree to sit down at a table with John Kerry without beheading him. Iran has picked up billions in sanctions relief and the right to take over Yemen and raid ships in international waters in the Persian Gulf just for agreeing to listen to Kerry talk for an hour. And that might be a fair exchange. As bad...

    HB 910, the Texas licensed open carry bill, passed the House by 2/3 margins.  The bill went through the Senate State Affairs Committee, where the Dutton amendment was stripped from it.   Now, being debated on the floor of the full Senate, the debate is whether to put the Dutton amendment back in.   The Dutton amendment specifies that peace officers may not detain open carriers simply to ask if they have a license, but must have probable cause to suspect criminal activity, just like they need for any Terry stop.   The amendment is designed to protect open carriers from police...

    After Ambassador J. Chris Stevens was killed in the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not even know his name. New emails released today show that Ms. Clinton thought the Ambassador's name was "Chris Smith," and referred to him as such in two separate emails. The first, sent by Ms. Clinton from her secret "Hrod17" email at 11:38 pm, had the subject of "Chris Smith" and asked if the State Department should announce his death: In response, Cheryl Mills, the Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary Clinton, did not correct...

    NY ICE marshaled its forces against DAPA-the President’s most recent illegal executive action-in downtown Manhattan recently. You can watch footage from the event which was uploaded to Vimeo, as well as read an account of the event by Joanna Marzullo, below. 5.19.15 New York, NY. The above videos are raw footage of the other side from NY ICE’s counter demonstration against DAPA. DAPA stands for Deferred Action for Parental Accountability, and is the illegal alien movement’s attempt to gain amnesty by using children.The illegal alien movement seems to think that Americans are willing to throw away our country at the...

    1.) Progressive Ideology ‘Dehumanizes The Population’ Anthony Daniels, who uses the pen name, Theodore Dalrymple, says the West is “too weak-willed,” “accepts obvious untruths” and “treats people as objects.” In a 28-minute video interview with The Daily Caller, he says “the intellectual dishonesty of the West is the greatest threat – we can’t say what we really think.” Dalrymple, based on his work in British prisons, is a critic of “determinism” — the dominant progressive theory that minimizes personal responsibility and portrays people as forced, by their circumstances, to behave as they do. This theory, Dalrymple says, “dehumanizes the population.”...

    Michelle Robinson Obama didn’t have it too bad growing up. And her affirmative action catapult ride to Princeton and Harvard, to prestigious jobs, and to the pinnacle of vast riches and power has been fabulously smooth sailing — that is, compared to the often grim life struggles of the unsung multitudes of downtrodden, creepy-ass crackers across this land (despite all that white privilege everywhere, eh). Still, something’s wrong at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If anyone should be over-brimming with gratitude for assorted blessings afforded to them by our society’s institutions and people,she should. So what’s with her endless racial resentment and...

    America is for the Free. The rest of the world already caters to the captives of tyrants Unchecked immigration is destroying our nation by undermining and overrunning the very institution that was built to harbor immigrants through the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution… Don’t call it compassion when the president, elected officials or a candidate takes a stand that illegal immigrants deserve a pass to stay in this country and receive citizenship, let alone resident status. It is approval of America’s demise; an uncontrolled decimation of what the Founders established in the new world expressly to provide free exercise...

    In truth, they came to remember a hope and a dream. And all across the South hundreds of thousands heard that train Why is the proud history of the South being attacked? Did you read about students at a Texas University who want a statue of Jefferson Davis removed from the campus? A beloved Southern President was laid to rest on Memorial Day. Listen closely, when the wind blows, and you may hear a train whistle from the distance. Many songs have been written about the passenger trains. On Sunday, May 28, 1893, a few days before Memorial Day, a...

     The group "Students for Concealed Carry on Campus" is organizing a call to have campus carry added to the open carry bill, HB 910 now being debated in the Texas Senate.    Their proposal would attach the Senate version of campus carry, SB11 to the bill.  They have 20 Senators that they are asking people to email.  From their facebook page: Please send an email to these twenty members of the Texas Senate, telling them you want to see House Bill 910 (open carry) amended to include Senator Birdwell’s campus carry language. You don’t have to email each member individually;...
