  • Bill de Blasio tells New Yorkers not to eat at ‘anti-LGBT’ Chick-fil-A

    The Washington Times ^ | May 4, 2016 | Bradford Richardson
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday encouraged his constituents not to eat at a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening in the city, citing the company’s pro-traditional marriage views. “What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong,” Mr. de Blasio said at a press conference, as reported by DNA Info. “I’m certainly not going to patronize them, and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them,” he said, adding that “they do have a legal right.” Mr. de Blasio’s comments came after city Councilman Danny Dromm started a boycott for a new Chick-fil-A location opening in...

    If those of us in the Republican party cannot let go of the personal animosity that exists against each other and unite against the Democratic party, then the 2016 election will be the last election in American history. What I mean by this is if Hillary Clinton becomes our next President then America will enter the longest period of uninterrupted Democrat rule since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Meaning, as Daniel Greenfield of Front Page Mag writes, “it will be the single greatest opportunity for the left to transform America since the days of the New Deal”. Furthermore, Greenfield...

    A tradition for 50 years, the "powder puff" girls tackle football game in Jupiter, Florida, is being canceled for the first time thanks to—what else?—safety concerns. Dan Frank, Jupiter High School's principal, said "Student safety is my first priority." The girls' short practice time and borrowed safety equipment, he said, "put our students at risk." After all: A girl broke her leg a few years ago. Maybe the school should get rid of its stairs, while they're at it. It's not that the principal didn't have some whiz-bang alternatives up his sleeve like... bobbing for apples. The Associated Press reports:

    You know, I’m feeling it this year, as a new mama to 7, like none other, the complex range of emotions for Mother’s Day. For a surprising number of us, it’s a tender day—a reminder of the mother we lost or the mother who couldn’t be or the mom we needed when we were kids. Or it’s an awkward day spent wondering if a partner will help our kids celebrate us. Or it’s a day of aching for the unfulfilled role of mother—a role we do not yet hold or may never hold. And for a few, Mother’s Day ushers...

    As both the GOP and Democrats trudge forward, fractures are emerging on the left as Bernie Sanders threatens to stay in the race until the end. What was once a happy-go-lucky party of communists and moderate liberals singing Kumbaya is now a mirror of the Republicans under Donald Trump. The rogue candidate threatening to demolish the status quo is a reality in both worlds. The difference is that only one of the rogues will win their party's nomination. Come November, it is becoming more and more possible that disenfranchised Democrats who oppose TPP and the pay-to-play politics in the Democratic...

    With his powerful concession speech last night, Senator Ted Cruz suspended his campaign for the Republican Party’s nomination for president. The battle for the prize has been won by Donald Trump; and for the continued survival of our nation, he must now defeat Hillary Clinton. For those who have fought so hard for other candidates there is no more room for hedging. There are only two choices. Our support can go to a man who will stop the nation’s roll to the Left, close the borders, end Obamacare and get us advantageous trade deals or not. While it might be...

    A few years back I asked a number of people how long does a Supreme Court Justice serve. Almost unanimously the response was until death or resignation. No one’s response was constitutional. There is nothing in the Constitution that says a Supreme Court Justice or any other federal judge serves for life or until they resign. Here is what the Constitution says about the term of office of a Supreme Court Justice or federal judge: “Article III. Section. 1. The judicial Power of the United States shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the...

    Completely disjointed and impotent conservatives America is going to have a Democrat - specifically Hilary Clinton - for its next president. I sincerely hope I’m wrong about this one - but I’m not. What follows is why and embarrassingly devoid of anything close to rocket science. Four years ago the right caved. And it’s going to keep happening because none of what caused it last time has changed. The self-consumed GOP doesn’t behave as though they understand the challenges they really face regarding capturing public support. Most of the problem is how they are perceived - and that is worsened...

    May 1 is known by some as May Day. A communist, anti-God celebration of the death of freedom and the rise of the tyranny of socialism. On May 1, 2016, however, the day also served as Holocaust Remembrance Day. Cities across the country participated in the March of Remembrance to honor the dead, and the living, on Holocaust Memorial Day. I participated in the City of Murrieta, California. After the event was over, the only word that comes to mind to describe what I experienced is “powerful.” After the ceremony, after the march around the Murrieta Town Square park area,...

    By all rights the 2016 Presidential primaries should be over. There is after all only one candidate still standing who can make the required 1237 delegates and that is Donald Trump. Yet Ted Cruz refuses to go away. There’s a youtube video floating around that shows an 18-year old Cruz talking about his goals. Cruz said he wanted to “take over the world, world domination… you know, rule everything, rich, powerful that sort of stuff.” On its face this looks like teenage ramblings but with Cruz, not so much. Ted’s father, Rafael Cruz, preaches a neo-charismatic movement, the “Seven Mountain...

    In a bid to solidify her leftist credentials, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton floated a couple of ridiculous ideas about how this country will improve when she is president. On the urban violence front, Clinton proposes to "reset" the relationship between police and street gangs. "The knee jerk attitude of the average American toward urban gangs is that they are a bad thing," she observed. "What they overlook is that joining a gang is like having a family. It's feeling like you're part of something bigger than yourself. I think this is a positive thing. Another positive is that the...

At the event Clinton said she was the only candidate who "has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. We're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business," she said. But now that Clinton is campaigning in West Virginia, her tune has changed. "What I said was totally...

It’s then that I began to realize that of ALL the controversial things Glenn has brought forward, Glenn has never really taken up the issue of Obama’s ineligibility. Why not? Isn’t that a key tenet of the Constitution? David Barton must surely have explained to Glenn why the founding authors included that phrase “Natural Born Citizen” in the Article’s first Section. So that created some real cognitive dissonance for me. I just couldn’t seem to...

Are obese people really helpless victims of their genes? Let us begin by distinguishing between “monogenic” obesity and what scientists call “common” obesity. Monogenic obesity, as the name implies, is caused by a mutation in a single gene, which is inherited in a Mendelian fashion, just as conditions such as sickle-cell anemia and cystic fibrosis are.

    As Blue as New York State is, its Senate is still controlled by the Republicans. In New York City, however there is no Republican presence except for three City Council seats. Consequently the City’s scandals are 100% owned by Democrats.

You might be tempted to dismiss them as “foolish young people”, but the truth is that they are the future of America. As older generations die off, they will eventually become the leaders of this country. And of course our nation has not resembled anything close to a capitalist society for quite some time now.

Now, we’re supposed to believe there may be a racial component to Amazon’s new same-day shipping service for Prime members in certain areas of the country. The Christian Science Monitor reported: For many black consumers and especially those who have experienced discrimination in retail shops, Amazon presents a good option for shopping without being followed around or singled out. Here’s the kicker: But a Bloomberg analysis of the same-day shipping services reveals a racial bias: Amazon’s same-day shipping service often excludes predominantly black neighborhoods in six major cities. Say what? Some companies have made...

    On Friday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of violent protests outside a Donald Trump rally in Costa Mesa, California, after conservative CNN political commentator Matt Lewis suggested that they might be "leftist agitators" who are effectively boosting Trump's campaign with their behavior, co-host Chris Cuomo defused his characterization by asserting that many of them "were just dissatisfied citizens who were taking out their disatisfaction the wrong way in anger and destroying a lot of property there."

    It took awhile to notice. Yes, I've been posting to articles for a long time. Yet, today I noticed a mild type of propaganda as I posted a reply to an article.Each time that I typed koran my computer prompted me to capitalize it. However when I typed Bible, un-capitalized, there was no such prompt. Why? Then I typed islam and Christian as a test and there it was again, 'the prompt'. A prompt was given to capitalize islam but no such prompt for Christian. This.......must stop. A demand to hold the so-called religion of islam above the true religion...

    This is the second in a series of essays on the duty of Christians in civic affairs, adapted from Kevin Kookogey’s weekly radio address and podcasts at advancingchurch.com. This week we begin our examination of questions from listeners. 1. Christians should be informed about politics, but should they really determine which political side is correct? How can one claim that it is important for Christians to be informed about politics if the conclusion one draws from the information is deemed irrelevant or off limits? It is, after all, conclusions that lead one to act and to act is to take...
  • Dump Trump (GOP Gala Protests: Part II)

    04/28/2016 9:01:59 PM PDT · by OddLane
    The right is blessed in its opponents, who have never truly appreciated how deeply unappealing their platform is, at least to non-millennials, i.e. individuals who aren’t complete ignoramuses. A perfect illustration of this political tone deafness can be found in the mass demonstrations held in front of the Grand Hyatt Hotel during the pre-primary GOP Gala. Our good friend Pamela Hall has a fantastic photo essay which chronicles the concerns expressed by the assorted dregs of humanity...

    Sheriff David Clarke may soon win the moniker of “America’s Sheriff” away from Sheriff Joe Arpaio if he continues spinning these gems. Sheriff Clarke recently appeared on Fox News’ Hannity Show to discuss some comments made by Democrat presidential frontrunner and possible soon-to-be felon, Hillary Clinton. Earlier this week during a campaign stop in Connecticut, Clinton was attempting to connect with a voter who discussed his violence-filled past when she said some pretty ridiculous things. u said something that is so important for people to hear. You know, joining a gang is like having a family. It’s feeling like you’re...

    The new normal: The economy is not good. The economy has not been good for the entire Obama presidency Businesses aren’t spending money. Neither are consumers. And while the unemployment rate is made to look good, record low labor-force participation tells a different story. The economy is not good. The economy has not been good for the entire Obama presidency. And while Democrats hope we’re getting used to horrendous news like this, we shouldn’t be: The U.S. economy grew at its slowest pace in roughly 2 years, climbing just 0.5 percent in the first three months of 2016.

    Burns Chronicles #20 In light of the many complaints filed against the Arnold Law Firm, attorneys for Ammon Bundy, over their method of raising funds to pay for a legal defense against a government back by hundreds of attorneys and millions of dollars, perhaps there is another side to this story that needs to be looked at. Shawna Cox had the wherewithal to begin recording the events, from the first stop to the murder of LaVoy Finicum. In so doing, she recorded a moment of history that cannot be duplicated.

    Fear is a great motivator. Fear will make us do things we never thought we were capable of and drive us to success in sometimes impossible situations. Fear is a very effective agent for overcoming complacency. Fear has driven Donald Trump’s supporters to the polls in numbers not seen before. And fear will generate a tsunami of votes that will crush Hillary Clinton next November. We are afraid of many things but mostly another four years of gangsters running our lives from Washington. We fear that Hillary Clinton would govern just like Barack Obama and maybe worse in some cases....

    50-shades-of-bray Clinton used the wrong mimic when she barked like a dog at an event last month. Some of us can already hear her braying her way to certain victory The donkeys are braying. That’s what donkeys do when they sniff excitement in the air. They bray loudest while waiting for the mainstream media to bring on their feed. It was the Democrat donkeys that imposed a 50-50 polarization on America back in 2008 when they, taking savvy advantage of social media’s celebrity cult of the day, introduced Barack Hussein Obama from a surrealistic Greek column facade. Roughly 50% of...

Tuesday night, the city council voted unanimously to amend the city's personnel policy to allow city employees with a valid concealed carry permit to carry their weapons during the workday. The policy may be the first for a city in Georgia, but it is a growing trend in...

    If nobody is working in one out of every five U.S. families, then how in the world can the unemployment rate be close to 5 percent as the Obama administration keeps insisting? The truth, of course, is that the U.S. economy is in far worse condition than we are being told. Last week, I discussed the fact that the Federal Reserve has found that 47 percent of all Americans would not be able to come up with $400 for an unexpected visit to the emergency room without borrowing it or selling something. But Barack Obama and his minions never bring...
