  • Hillary Vows To Shut Down Dissenting Internet Sites if She Wins Presidency

    Freedom Outpost ^ | 8/22/2016 | Michael Depinto
    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    Subway announced Wednesday it is banning the open carry of firearms in restaurants across the nation. WRAL reports the ban applies even in states where open carry is legal. Guns.com notes Subway’s firearm policy now says the restaurant chain requests “guests (other than authorized law enforcement) refrain from openly displaying firearms inside restaurants — even in states where ‘open carry’ is permitted.”
  • OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE SCHOOL v. MORRISSEYBERRU

    The First Amendment protects the right of religious institutions “to decide for themselves, free from state interference, matters of church government as well as those of faith and doctrine.” Kedroff v. Saint Nicholas Cathedral of Russian Orthodox Church in North America, 344 U. S. 94, 116. Applying this principle, this Court held in HosannaTabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC, 565 U. S. 171, that the First Amendment barred a court from entertaining an employment discrimination claim brought by an elementary school teacher, Cheryl Perich, against the religious school where she taught. Adopting the so-called “ministerial exception” to laws...
  • Supreme Court Upholds Religious Exemptions to Contraceptive Mandate

    The Supreme Court upheld exemptions for the contraceptive mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for entities with religious or moral objections in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Pennsylvania. The order of nuns has faced nearly a decade of court battles after the Obama administration refused to allow exemptions to the mandate for religious entities. While President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) threatened the order with fines for non-compliance, the Little Sisters argue that the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act (RFRA) protects them from the far-reaching mandate. The Trump administration allowed exemptions to the provision and...

    https://thefederalist.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Screen-Shot-2020-07-07-at-5.03.12-PM-998x665.png> The Navy last week asked my husband to sign his name to a new restriction broadly “prohibiting,” in bold letters, a multitude of activities “to include indoor religious services” and even to discourage “in-person use” of “drive-in spiritual services.” While we maintain a faint hope that the military doesn’t really mean to restrict religious practices, the latest restrictions preclude nearly all indoor religious services — even those adhering to COVID-19 guidelines. The Catholic Masses my husband and I attend are vastly better spaced than the grocery or liquor stores where he can shop, or even the authorized Chick-fil-A drive-through...

    Here is a checklist for fans of the “greatest of all presidents.” Where’s the wall — and is Mexico paying for it? Where’s the fabulous plan to replace ObamaCare? Where’s the deal with North Korea to end their nuclear threat? Where’s the racial healing in retweeting a supporter shouting “white power”? Oh, didn’t he tell you in February the virus was going to magically disappear and then repeat it to you last week after more than 125,000 Americans died from it? Now that’s a record of failure. And here is one more question on empty promises for Trump’s biggest fans,...

    In today’s world you can burn down a church, tear down an abolitionist statue, or pour fake blood on the portrait of a founding father, and you’ll be praised. But don’t dare defend your family from a violent mob threatening to kill you, your wife, and your children—that would be wrong. Recently, in St. Louis, Missouri, a married couple successfully defended their home with a rifle and a pistol against a BLM mob allegedly endangering their lives. For this, the city’s lead prosecutor is attempting to press charges against them. The whole episode is perfectly symbolic of the chaos in...

    Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, and Amy Schumer were among a group of Hollywood celebrities who joined President Obama in a post-San Bernardino gun control video ad produced by Everytown for Gun Safety. The three actresses were joined by other celebrities-including Kevin Bacon, Michael J. Fox, Sofia Vergara, Sarah Silverman, Ty Burrell, and Nick Offerman-each of whom take turns looking into the camera to say, "We can end gun violence." No one explains how to end it, but they take turns saying the words and, at times, repeat the sentence over and over together.Obama takes time to say, "When we come...

    According to Matthew McConaughey, assault weapons are not “alright, alright, alright.” But banning them is. The 48-year-old actor spoke at the Austin, Texas March for Our Lives, stating that he was there because he’s an American citizen, a proud Texan, a March for Our Lives believer, and, most importantly, because “I’m a father and I’m a husband.” Though he claimed that he wasn’t advocating for gun control, he asked that Second-Amendment supporters “take one for the team.” McConaughey, a famous face at the gun-control rally, announced that he didn’t attend for the sake of subverting the Second Amendment, but that...

    During an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on June 24, the leader of Black Lives Matter’s (BLM) Greater New York chapter, Hawk Newsome, threatened that “if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.”  He also said that for BLM to “intervene effectively” would be an example of “upholding the Second Amendment.” To the contrary, however, the violence and destruction Newsome threatened, and the violent crimes and property crimes rioters have been committing in support of BLM’s political objectives the last few weeks, are things the Second Amendment is...

    Boston Herald ^ | July 6, 2020
    A horrific week of violence in Boston — seven slayings in less than a week — led to calls on Sunday to end the bloodshed and for a serious investment in mental-health services in the city. A woman was shot to death early Sunday morning in Dorchester, according to police who reported the seventh killing in Boston since Tuesday. “It’s just absolutely terrible,” Mary Franklin, founder of the Women Survivors of Homicide Movement, told the Herald. “If our city would invest in serious mental-health services for poor communities, we would be able to decrease a lot of the crime and...

    A federal judge Monday dismissed a lawsuit by Michigan Republican groups seeking to block a new state redistricting commission. The ruling is the latest legal setback for Republicans, who earlier this year failed to win an injunction that would prevent the formation of the commission, which they contend is unconstitutional. The decision Monday — by U.S. District Court Judge Janet Neff, appointed by GOP President George W. Bush — is a blow to state Republicans who fought against the implementation of the redistricting commission, which was created in 2018.

    WAGON WHEEL – Bryce Provance scratches combat formations into the dry earth as four others – camouflaged in bulletproof helmets and vests – watch intently. Each man holds a high-powered rifle tight to his body with a pistol and several magazines often ready on his hip. You would never guess it by looking at them, but they’re thousands of miles from the nearest battlefield. These are members of the New Mexico Civil Guard, the group that made international headlines for its heavily armed presence at an Albuquerque protest that culminated in a shooting last month. “The world is a scary...

    Niskanen Center ^ | June 30 2020 | BY MILEAH KROMER, MELISSA DECKMAN
    Joe Biden was hardly the darling of the youth vote during the Democratic primaries. From the Iowa caucuses through the March 17 primaries, he won just 22 percent of the votes among those younger than 45 years old and far less among those aged 18-24. But despite his low levels of initial support and ongoing reports of a lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy, polls now show the former vice president boasting a 20+ point lead over Pres. Donald Trump among young voters. It’s little wonder why. Millennials (born 1981 to 1996) and Generation Z (born after 1996) identify or...
  • CHOP gets the chop: Barricades at Seattle's cop-free zone are torn down as police move in to reclaim the 'war zone' a day after the second deadly shooting at the camp when its own security shot dead a black 16-year-old

    Seattle's 'occupied' protest zone was dismantled Tuesday a day after the second deadly shooting at the camp when its own security shot dead a black teenager. Demonstrators have occupied several blocks around the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct and a park for about two weeks. Police had abandoned the precinct following clashes with protesters calling for an end to police brutality. But by Tuesday morning crews were working to pull down the barriers.

    American Greatness ^ | June 28, 2020 | Victor Davis Hanson
    he 2020 election will be decided in the fall by swing voters in ten or 15 states. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, those voters were leaning to reelect President Trump, largely on the powers of incumbency and a near-record vibrant economy. The Democratic left-wing primary agendas, from the New Green Deal to reparations, the clownish candidates of the Beto O’Rourke and Corey Booker sort, the arrogance and meltdown of Mike Bloomberg, and Joe Biden’s cognitive impairment collectively frightened voters. Meanwhile, the booming economy, record energy production, record-low minority unemployment and reckoning with China had overshadowed Trump’s cul de sac tweeting,...

    Of course we’re talking about the St. Louis couple who brandished firearms at “peaceful protesters” who knocked down a gate and marched through their private property. Plenty of lefties can’t believe that they haven’t been arrested yet for pointing guns at people, but as The Federalist reports, left-wing think tank president Jerry Taylor wouldn’t have waited for the police. In a now-deleted tweet, he says he would have rushed the couple, beaten their brains in, and not apologized either.
